The Southern Poverty Law Center and Its Double Standard on Free Speech

18-01-2015 00:33

There are no factual statements made at the Democracy Now form of opportunism to show that David Duke as actually engaged in advocating, say, violence or oppression against others. Rather what seems to upset Potok and his many supporters is that Duke and others are focused on excessive Jewish political and social influence on Americans, Europeans and Christians (in another words free speech as Duke is really about trying to use ideas to convince people to think differently—not advocating for slavery or Jim Crow or injustice to minorities). How does this compare with honoring the sleazy cartoons at Charlie Hebdo?

Rep. Governor Jindal due to spread #FoxNewsFacts lies in speech in London

17-01-2015 16:22

USA Today article about bringing division to the UK
Republican Governor and "potential presidential candidate" Bobby Jindal is due to give a 'lecture' on Monday at the House of Commons in which USA media reports that he will "reiterate the disputed claim that Muslim immigrants have created "no-go zones" in Europe".

Such statements take us back to Enoch Powell politics and are naive and ill-judged prejudice at best, and deliberately reactionary, divisive and inflammatory at worst.

Unite Against Fascism have called a vigil outside of the German Embassy in London to support anti-Pegida campaigners in Germany. Sure enough, the tired, worn thugs from the British fascist scene have declared their intention to turn up to oppose them. Casuals United (Piss and Shit squad), the SEA, the NF, and of course, the stupid old EDL, and members of Britain First are expected to travel across to have a pop at the UAF in small numbers under the banner of "UK Pegida", to follow on from the failure that was "Golden Dawn UK", "New Dawn", "UK Dawn" or whatever they called themselves.

The EDL are almost begging Britain First to attend - Jayda will be well chuffed at all the attention coming her way - usually everyone ignores her.

Gathering for their wanky "UK Pegida" march lol, these braindead no marks are more than happy to waste their Sunday night to stand around in the pouring rain chanting racist abuse when surely the fools have better things to do.
