Griffin Wants to Kill African Immigrants

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.

    They do know that Bomb the Boats was satirical, right?

    You know that there’d be an immediate drop-everything rescue mission by the US, Canada, and every other North Atlantic country. Whether or not they’re currently doing anything to rescue African shipwreck victims.

    Note that the EU, a polity of over 500 million inhabitants counts approximately 10 million less immigrants living on its soil than the 320 million people strong USA: we’re more numerous than you, we have fewer immigrants than you, but the local nutjobs keep lying about numbers and many gutless politicians play along from fear of becoming the demagogic bullies next favorite target.

    Technically, Griffin is no longer a member of the BNP. He was too extreme even for them, and they expelled him earlier this month.

    Setting the UKIP adrift would be more useful. The BNP is mostly kaput now, but the UKIP — who are more dangerous as they aren’t as openly violent — is the current set of nutters. I would not be surprised if one reason for the British government’s (another set of nutters, who have big guns available, and use them) abandonment of the program is to appease the people who claim to be thinking of voting for the UKIP in the next election.

    And if you could put the French FN (Le Pen’s nutters) on the same BNP Ark, it’d be much appreciated. They have had way too much success in the past election, getting, as an example, c.25% of the vote in the area where I live.

    No need to be as drastic as sending the entire BNP out on rickety ships … the European Parliament could just appoint Nick Griffin as a committee of one to investigate the problem … drop him off on one of the boats, have a naval destroyer standing off 25 yards and ask him if the boat should be sunk. Videotape his response and broadcast it 24/7 for as long as he is in the parliament.

    Griffin was booted out as head honcho of the BNP in October…he is not elected to Europe either having lost his seat in the May elections this year.

    A busted flush is more useful, what is a worry in Brit politics is the rise of the UKIP banner.

    The media piss themselves being sycophantic to them, which is a mystery considering most of the lowly rank and file that comprise the party faithful were at one time members of BNP and EDL, although UKIP deny it.

    It seems that the seedy element of the right wing has exchanged the political street thug image, that had no chance of a sniff at power, for a so called respectable new right leaning party that will not terrorize the electorate quite as easily and therefore stand a better chance of power, but with so called inclusive values, which seem remarkably similar to the BNP and EDL when analysed between their denials of homophobic, racist, misogyny.

    Now UKIP is a party fronted by disaffected Tory ‘Colonel Blimps’ some of whom ‘crossed the floor’ from the Conservatives to Join UKIP and amazingly enough some like to sport streetwise security staff drawn from their own UKIP ranks, the similarity in style to BNP & EDL ‘security goon squads’ is undeniable.

    Farage gets enough eggs to open an omelette bar on his husting travels so they do need a tad of security, no surprise there.

    In some respects it is reminiscent of the American Tea Party…just more eccentric.

    The Ultra right wing bias is reflected in the blatantly xenophobic, misogynistic, anti-ghey, anti-science rhetoric dressed in a ‘Christian identity’, every now and then one of their members lets the mask drop and you see what is really behind it.

    Not good on an empty stomach as it happens.

    They seem to be more a protest vote at the moment aimed at kicking the duel major parties in Parliament, who despite their pompous schizoid hand wringing and claiming of superiority over several issues, are much of a muchness and rather grey if not formulaic.

    Folks are just sick of the bollix they churn out, by degrees ranging from out of touch liberalism to outright violations of human rights…and both parties are regarded as indolent and incapable whatever their position. ‘

    UKIP recently gained a parliamentary seat mainly through default rather then brilliant electioneering.

    The next GE will decide if it is a an anomaly or a ceiling buster.

    But whatever, Nick Griffin is a has been, he has not even got a party any-more.

    His views are as relevant as a rusty nail’s and he is bankrupt to boot.

    No immediate danger there then.

    But UKIP…well that is another tale!

    This is true. A joke I’ve heard going about basically since Tony Blair became PM is that, in UK politics, we have a quite right-wing party that holds the ideals of Thatcher in high regard, and, opposing them, we have the Conservative Party. However, the BNP is maybe very slightly left of Hitler, and UKIP can basically be summarised as the BNP with better suits and more talented marketing people.

    The best definition I’ve seen is that UKIP are the party for people who would vote BNP but are worried about how it might affect house prices

    I don’t think that’s accurate. My second link@9 (sorry about the failed closing bracket to the link) shows that the geographical distribution of their electoral support is quite different. As far as the leadership are concerned, they are certainly racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, and anti-science, but they’re not Nazis. The core of the BNP leadership, and the NF before them, have always been convinced Nazis, with the full gamut of antisemitic conspiracy theories, Aryan purity fetishes and Führerprinzip not far below the surface. At the UKIP membership level, there will be a significant Nazi contingent, but mostly it’s everyday atheoretical general-purpose bigots. The comparison with the Tea Party is closer than that with the BNP – there’s a “small-government” component to the ideology, although the religious aspect is largely missing, except in a “cultural Christian” form.

    The problem faced by the British Tories is different from that faced by the Republicans. The US electoral system essentially forced the US Tea Party to stage their revolt within the ranks of the Republican Party, but because it is easier and far cheaper to mount an independent campaign in the UK, UKIP is challenging the Conservative Party from the outside — running candidates in by-elections and in the General Election next year.

    But while the Tea Party claimes around 50 representatives in Congress, UKIP is very unlikely to come anywhere close to that number of MPs next year. I had originally predicted zero, but that was before a couple of Tories defected and forced by-elections. I still believe they will find it hard to win any more seats other than the one Farage himself stands in, and I very much doubt they will gain more than 5 or 6 at the most.

    Of course, the Republican Party’s overall numbers were boosted, and their non-Tea Party leadership remained in control of all the leadership positions, so while they are unruly, in the end, the Tea Party has aided the establishment Republicans more than they hurt them (in the House elections anyway — Senate elections have been a very mixed bag so far).

    The Tories, however, are facing a squeeze next year, with UKIP running to the right and Labour to the left. (No idea how the Lib Dems will do after the coalition.) Labour could be the big winners if UKIP drains away enough votes from the Conservative Party, especially in the marginal constituencies where swings of less than 5% could make a huge difference. If UKIP ends up coming second or a close third in a lot of places, the Tories will be in for a very long night.

    The main danger to the Labour Party is Farage’s everyman appeal to the more conservative working-class Labour supporters. It’s been a long time since the Labour Party leadership has had someone who could be seen as a “man of the people” and while Farage maybe a “toff” himself, he knows the right populist buttons to push when it comes to political campaigning. New Labour might find themselves missing Old Labour quite a lot come next May.

    “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.”

    Because nothing prevents people from dying on the way to Europe better than sinking the boat they’re travelling in. Can’t argue with logic like this.

    tacitus@13,

    All three of the “main parties” in the UK face great difficulties in next year’s election. I put the term in scare-quotes, because it’s quite likely the Liberal Democrats will only hold a handful of seats after the election: in the latest national opinion poll, they come in fifth, having been overtaken by both UKIP and the Greens. The Tories will lose most votes to UKIP, but Labour and the LibDems will also lose votes to them, although as you say, UKIP are unlikely to get many seats. In addition, Labour stand to lose perhaps as many as 20 seats to the SNP in Scotland – despite the “No” vote in the recent referendum, there was a clear “Yes” in many of Labour’s strongholds, notably Glasgow, and polls show the SNP 20 points clear of Labour, who are also in the middle of a leadership crisis. Overall, it seems likely Labour will be the largest party – the current constituency boundaries favour them, and they are consistently ahead in vote share in opinion polls, although not by much – but short of a majority. Indeed, it could be that the only two parties which could join in a majority coalition will be Labour and the Tories!
