it is disturbing and dangerous (albeit unsurprising) that some people are using the mueller investigation to suggest that black people should be arrested for discussing police brutality, mass incarceration, and supporting the black lives matter movement because it was ‘divisive’. black activists and academics have been discussing these issues long before the 2016 election, and will continue to do so long after. it is outrageous to implicate them in russian collusion for continuing to address important issues that directly affect them. white supremacy and police brutality are woven into the fabric of the united states; pointing that out is not an act of treason or a campaign of disinformation. do not allow this to set another precedent of attacking the left and any opposition to the status quo, with the intent of limiting political debate. that is fascism.

Meanwhile in America …

If you’ve seen the classic film The blues Brothers, you’ll probably remember the scene where Jake and Elwood express their hatred of Illinois Nazis before driving their bluesmobile at the Nazi parade forcing them to jump off the bridge into the water.

What you may not know is that the Illinois Nazis in the film were based on an actual bunch of Illinois Nazis who regularly marched through Chicago and even attempted to hold a fascist parade through the mainly Jewish town of Skokie in the late 1970s.

Well under Trump’s chaotic rule the Republican Party have decided to give the former leader of this Nazi group a free run at the race to become the Republican candidate for the 3rd Congressional District of Illinois!

This isn’t a joke or some kind of exaggeration. They’ve literally left the door open to Arthur Jones by not fielding a single other candidate!

Make no mistake that this guy may have reformed his fascist ways, he’s still a full-on anti-Semite, white supremacist, and Hitler fanatic.

Here are a few quotes:

  • “To me the Holocaust is what I said it is: It’s an international extortion racket.”
  • “I designed a huge ad, a full page ad appeared in the Milwaukee Journal with a huge swastika right in the centre of the thing. And the Jews had no idea … imagine that you’re a rabbi and you open the paper one morning and all of a sudden bingo, there’s a swastika looking at you in the face [laughs].”
  • “The green, red, and black flag of the black militants. That’s their goal. They want to take over the south land and drive the white people out, and take it over, and create a black nation.”

In fact the guy is so far off to the extreme right that he says that he regrets voting for Donald Trump because “he’s surrounded himself with hoardes of Jews”!

Only a leader as inept as Donald Trump would allow an actual Nazi to gain the Republican nomination because they’re to chaotically disorganised to find anyone to stand against him in the primary.

Just look at the absolute dregs the Tory party are welcoming with open arms these days


We all know that the Tory party are running scared because Labour have built up a massive political army of 500,000+ activists, and because Theresa May spectacularly wasted their once in a lifetime opportunity to deliver a thumping majority for the hard-right by unifying the Tory and UKIP vote.
 

The Tories know that they’ve positioned themselves over a demographic trapdoor and they can’t get off

They know that the vile hard-right ultra-nationalism they used to attract the blue-kip vote is completely toxic to the majority of under-50s, but they also know that the blue-kip mob are a fickle bunch who would abandon them as quickly as they flocked to support them if the Tory party ever tried to drop the hard-right Brextremism.

So imagine the delight of the Tory Romford MP Andrew Rosindell when two young lads defied the demographic norm by joining his “Action Team”.

Rosindell was so chuffed that he welcomed the young lads with open arms, awarded them blue rosettes, and even gave them Twitter shout outs via his own Twitter account.
 

Unfortunately for Rosindell his Tweet perked the interest of an Another Angry Voice follower called Aleesha, who had a little look into the kind of young men who would decide to actively campaign for the Tories these days.

It turns out that Joe Crossley on the left is the kind of guy to retweet overtly racist pictures, and Jake Moore on the right is the kind of person who thinks the extreme-right scrawlings of the former-EDL leader Tommy Robinson constitutes “absolute quality” and one of the best books he’s ever read!

Crossley could probably fall back on the excuse that he did his racist retweet back in October 2014, (which these days apparently counts as “a long time ago” when making excuses for vile Internet comments unless you’re from the political left) but Moore’s gushing praise for the hate preacher who inspired the extreme-right Finsbury Park terrorist attack was posted less than five weeks before Rosindell welcomed him into his inner circle with open arms and handed him his blue rosette.

Since their Tweets were noticed, both Tory activists have locked down their Twitter accounts to prevent anyone else from looking through their Tweets for more evidence of racism, bigotry, and extreme-right sympathies.


Aside from noting the disgusting calibre of people the Tory party are willing to welcome with open arms as they charge headlong for the extreme-right territory once occupied by the BNP and UKIP, it’s also important to note their ridiculously amateurish attitude.

One would have thought that any reasonably competent political party would check the backgrounds of their activists before welcoming them into the fold, but neglecting to do even that before Tweeting out their Twitter handles that link directly back to bigoted and extreme-right stuff on their Twitter profiles is way beyond incompetence.

Anyway. The next time you hear the endlessly repeated mainstream media propaganda trope that Labour is being infiltrated by the extreme-left, remember that it’s Orwellian reality-reversing rubbish, and that the real extremist infiltration is happening in the Tory party, and that this extreme-right influx is actually being welcomed with open arms by a shambolic self-serving party that see desperately appealing to the basest instincts of the extreme-right as their only hope of clinging to political power in the face of the Corbyn surge.

Britain First are mobilising behind Jacob Rees-Mogg

Just days after one of Britain First’s vast army of brainwashing victims was convicted for committing an act of vigilante terrorism in London, Britain First are mobilising behind the Brextremist Tory toff Jacob Rees-Mogg, and their extreme-right hate mob are plotting vengeance attacks against one of the protesters who interrupted Jacob Rees-Mogg’s speech in Bristol.

Any decent person should be disgusted by Jacob Rees-Mogg, his proven associations with racists and white supremacists, his vehement opposition to women’s rights, his unwavering support for ruinous Tory austerity dogma, and his recent hard Brexit conspiracy mongering against the civil service that has been compared to the behaviour of the Nazi party in 1930s Germany.

However Rees-Mogg’s hard-right politics, Brextremist conspiracy-mongering, white supremacist credentials, and opposition to women’s right have made him the new darling of the Britain First hate mob.

Just as Britain First directed their followers to support UKIP before the party’s spectacular implosion, they’re now openly propagandising in favour of Jacob Rees-Mogg. 

Presumably they’re mobilising behind Rees-Mogg because they see an extreme-right takeover of the (already fanatically right-wing) Tory party as a much easier option than a concerted effort to breathe life back into the corpse of UKIP.

Back in 1930s Germany there was a similar group to Britain First. They were called the Sturmabteilung (brown shirts) and they were the uniformed thugs that the Nazis turned to for violent attacks, intimidation tactics, street battles, and killings.

Whenever the Nazis wanted a lawless mob raising or a violent attack on their political opponents, they could rely on the brown shirt goons to do their dirty work.

Britain in the 1930s was quite different and people stood up in solidarity against the rise of the extreme-right, culminating in the Battle of Cable Street where the establishment toff Oswald Mosley and his black shirt thugs were prevented from marching through the East End of London by a massive crowd of British working class, Jewish, Irish, and left-wingers. This massive public protest against the extreme-right resulted in a defeat that Mosley and the British Union of Fascists never recovered from.

These days the fightback against the extreme right is nowhere near as big as it was in the 1930s, largely thanks to massive social media sites like Facebook and Twitter casually enabling extreme-right hate-mongering and terrorist-sympathising on their platforms, and the deliberate normalisation of extreme-right views by the mainstream media, and increasingly even the BBC.

Whether you think that barging in to noisily interrupt political speeches is an effective form of protest or not, surely nobody with any common decency thinks that political protesters deserve to suffer a barrage of death threats and abuse from Rees-Mogg supporting goons in the Britain First hate mob. 

But that is what is happening now.

Rees-Mogg may try to ignore the fact that the extreme-right are not mobilising behind him and his extreme hard-Brexit posturing. 

He’ll likely say nothing to condemn the Britain First hate mob for plotting violent vengeance attacks against anyone who dares oppose him, just as he’s ignored the terrifying significance of the waves of blue-kipper abuse and death threats any time a Tory MP dares to question Theresa May’s hard-right, secretive, and profoundly anti-democratic interpretation of the Brexit vote.

The simple truth is that if Rees-Mogg does not come out and criticise Britain First, condemn their campaign of intimidation against the people who interrupted his speech, and explicitly reject their support, then he’ll be illustrating the fact that he sees the support of this violent extreme-right hate mob as crucial in his push for power.

Remember that Britain First fanatics have already resorted to murderous acts of terrorism. 

The extreme-right fanatic who murdered the Labour MP Jo Cox was involved with the group, and the terrorist who plotted to murder Jeremy Corbyn and carried out the Finsbury Park attack was also a Britain First goon.

Then consider the gleeful reaction of the Britain First hate mob after the Finsbury Park terrorist attack, their lionisation of the killer, and their plot to raise a slush fund to incite more people into committing acts of extreme-right terrorism.

Any politician who is willing to align themselves with a disgusting mob like this in their quest for power is clearly and obviously a grave danger to civilised society.

If Rees-Mogg proves his willingness to court this dangerous extreme-right Britain First mob by refusing to condemn them or explicitly reject their support, then he’ll be proving that the protesters who interrupted his speech were absolutely right to protest against him.

He’ll also be proving that anyone in Britain with any decency left should be protesting against him too.

What you can do

  • You can contact Jacob Rees-Mogg by sharing this article with him  and asking him to explicitly condemn Britain First, their glorification of extreme-right terrorism, and the support they’re giving him. You can do this by tagging him on Twitter and asking him to comment. Or if you’re a constituent of North East Somerset you could email him and ask him for a reply.
  • You can contact members of the mainstream media and ask them if they’d be willing to confront Rees-Mogg about Britain First, their support for him, their glorification of terrorism, and their campaign of intimidation against the people who protest against him.
  • If Rees-Mogg refuses to distance himself from the Britain First hate mob you should consider protesting against him yourself the next time he appears in public near where you live.
