Don’t prosecute fascist anti-Muslim hatemongers says ‘libertarianÂ Marxist’
* Just goes to show that useful idiots are just good enough to open the doors for the ummah…
Nick Griffiin from the BNP in an anti Islam demoÂ
“As one who exchanged blows rather than opinions with the National Front in the 1980s, it gives me no pleasure to say this. But we ought to uphold the right of the British National Party to express its views, however vile, after Merseyside Police arrested 13 of its members for distributing leaflets. I’m afraid that free speech means freedom for fools and scumbags, too.Â
* Â Ya think? Good onya, mate! Â But watch your back, your fuzzy wuzzy Muslim brothers don’t like you much after that…
“The BNP pamphlet doled out in Liverpool was calledÂ Racism Cuts Both Ways. You can see it on its website. It argues that everybody knows racial hatred is wrong, but that few realise that ‘the vast majority of the real racism that scars Britain involves white victims from the indigenous community’.
“It lays the blame for much of this on ‘relentless’ discrimination against British natives by ‘an institutionally hostile ruling class’ but also claims that ‘our people are the silent victims of an epidemic of racist violence, sexual exploitation and murder’ by Muslims and blacks.
“… racism is not a crime. And while police chiefs may judge ‘racist content’ to be offensive, that does not make it a criminal offence. It should not be the job of the police or the courts to outlaw any ‘ism’, idea or ideology.
“Incitement to racial or religious hatred is a crime, but difficult to prove (the BNP’s leader, Nick Griffin, was found not guilty in 2006). And rightly so. We should draw a clear line between words and violent deeds. The old playground saw about sticks and stones seems a more grown-up guide than current policy. That leaflet is arguably guilty of incitement to elect BNP councillors….
“For this old libertarian Marxist, state action against a political party, however odious, is nothing to cheer.”
Mick Hume in theÂ Times, 25 November 2008
One thought on “Bunglawussi finds fault with 'libertarian Marxist' who supports Freedom of Speech”
“libertarian Marxist”??? That is an oxymoron. Marxism is naturally an authoritarian economic philosophy, and Libertarianism is for decentralization of power. This fellow is correct in his defense of freedom of speech, but must think we are all idiots to accept his label for himself.
