But Daniel, You’re The ‘Fascists’ You’re Supposedly Protesting About…

The lesson from this weekend should be that we are stronger when united.

It is tempting to see a conflict between the kind of protests we saw on Saturday, and attempts at dialogue, such as when York mosque invited EDL protesters to sit down for tea and biscuits.

But they’re both necessary: when people are angry and want answers, talk to them. When fascists try to intimidate us by marching on our towns, stand up to them.

Here’s how Daniel’s UAF ‘stands up to fascists’:

Which is why the police arrested them en-masse and loaded them onto buses

For that reason we all need to show our solidarity with the 58 protesters who were arrested outside Downing Street for blocking the BNP’s path. Arrested under a public order law for refusing to stand in a designated “pen” – precisely the action that saw the BNP humiliated – they have been given restrictive bail conditions that suggest the authorities were more interested in discouraging them from exercising their right to protest in the future, rather than dealing with any disorder on the day.

Well, you are the problem, not the solution. There isn’t even really a problem, is there?

And it seems you’re in favour of those ‘public order laws’ when they are applied to your enemies, but not when they are applied to you. There’s a name for people like that.

    I wonder what Mr Cameron and Mr Bottomley, both signatories to the UAF, think about their pals’ actions? Or is it OK to be a fascist thug for some but not others?

      Yes. I suspect so…

    As I have said before, the UAF are nothing but the reincarnation of Mosley’s Brown Shirts except, at the moment, they don’t wear the uniform.

      Moseley’s black shirts.

    Ivan’s right. Mosely and his thugs tried to shut down free speech in Great Britain just as the so-called “anti-fascists” are doing. Had Mosely succeeded, we’d have been invaded by Nazis. Except the modern Nazis style themselves the UAF and are home-grown.

    Well, Churchill did say that when Fascism returned, it would come disguised as anti-Fascism.
