Several years ago, a bunch of young fascists at Michigan State University invited Nick Griffin of the British National Party to speak. Griffin denied that he was a racist, of course, but everyone knows otherwise. He proved it again by demanding that the EU sink ships full of African immigrants in the Mediterranean.
In a provocative intervention, Griffin, elected to the European parliament last month, called on the EU to introduce “very tough” measures to prevent illegal migrants entering Europe from Africa…
“But the only measure, sooner or later, which is going to stop immigration and stop large numbers of sub-Saharan Africans dying on the way to get over here is to get very tough with those coming over. Frankly, they need to sink several of those boats. Anyone coming up with measures like that, we’ll support, but anything which is there as a ‘oh, we need to do something about it’ but in the end doing something about it means bringing them into Europe we will oppose.”
The British government withdrew its support for an ongoing rescue operation by European governments that has saved an estimated 150,000 refugees from death, so they are now following the BNP’s barbaric and vicious views. I would gladly trade every xenophobic asshole who thinks it’s okay to just let people drown for every immigrant seeking a new life. Any nation would be far better off making that deal. Ship the BNP out to sea on rickety boats and see how long they survive.
