The poisons that lurk in the mud

They're hatching out all over.

Case in point: the lovely, bloodthirsty Pamela, who has been deploying the BIG SCARY RED LETTERS OF DOOM with increasing frequency of late. What's especially caught our eye is her fervent embrace of European "nationalist" (i.e. racist) entities like the British National Party, which until quite recently -- as in ten or so years ago -- was an openly neo-Nazi organization, and which retains close ties to the Vichy apologist Jean-Marie le Pen, among others.

Incidentally, is our favorite rabid Randian aware that the BNP is forming its very own trade union?

Elsewhere, the Flemish separatists and miscellaneous suedehead cranks who inhabit the Brussels Journal have been basking in some thoroughly undeserved attention, courtesy of the "Clash of Civilizations™" crowd. Never mind the Nazi-collaborationist antecedents of the Vlaams Belang ("Flemish Interest") party, of which Brussels Journal editor Paul Belien is an enthusiastic supporter -- in fact, his Irish-born wife Alexandra Colen is a VB deputy in the Belgian parliament.

Finally, if you thought the infamous Jyllands-Posten cartoons were too timid and mushy for your taste, check this out. Yet another anti-Google cause célèbre, coming soon to a right-wing élite website near you. (Silly Google. Don't they know that kowtowing to the forces of evil is only OK if you happen to be Pajamas Media?)

Paranoids like Pamela and LGFers in general seem to think Europe is one big amorphous blob of croissant munching lederhosen-wearing smiling unity. Since when has a single country 'represented' Europe?

Its a Euro-politicians wet dream for Europeans to be as close as Pamela laments. And very far from reality. They cant even decide where Europe's fkin borders are. Nevermind speaking dozens of different languages.
There are that many daily misunderstandings and competing interests I'm amazed a new war isnt declared every year.

Do her on the BNP, quotes from it's leader.

"In 1997, Nick Griffin published a booklet entitled "Who are the Mind Benders?". It claimed to prove that Jewish people controlled the British media and thereby were able to brainwash white British people into accepting multiculturalism."

" In 1998 Nick Griffin said, "I am well aware that the orthodox opinion is that 6 million Jews were gassed and cremated and turned into lampshades. Orthodox opinion also also once held that the Earth was flat... I have reached the conclusion that the "extermination" tale is a mixture of Allied wartime propaganda, extremely profitable lie, and latter witch-hysteria."

"In April 2001 Griffin spoke to the American Friends of the BNP. He said, "So, what are we now doing with the British National Party? Well we tried to simplify its message in some ways and to make it a saleable message. So it's not white supremacy or racial civil war or anything like that, which is what we know in fact is going on, and we're not supremacists, we're white survivalists, even that frightens people. Four apple pie words, freedom, security, identity and democracy."

An ardent supporter of Israel and someone who's Jewish supporting the Danish and British fascist parties? Is she really that stupid? I tend to think she is.

The BNP was founded as a Neo-Nazi party. It's security force was Combat 18 (18 standing for A and H, Hitler's initials), a paramilitary organisation that has attacked minorities including Jews since its inception. They also have extensive links to the American Nazi Party, Blood & Honour and White Nationalist groups everywhere. BNP leader Nick Griffin is a Holocaust denier who has been prosecuted for his views in a British court. The leadership of the BNP have all been either members or leaders of violent fascist groups and/or convicted criminals.

They have had their share of controversy in other areas as well, arrests for drug dealing, assaults and child abuse have all happened in the last couple of years.

Nice bedfellows the ghouls at LGF make.
