UKIP on the slippery slope 

Today UKIP started down a slippery slope by allowing discrimation , of those who have no choice about their sexuality, on the basis of views that people choose to have. 

UKIP want a “conscience law” for those who object to same sex marriage. The right to discriminate against a “group” because of religous dogma. 

This:

“We will also extend the legal concept of ‘reasonable accommodation’ to give protection in law to those expressing a religious conscience in the workplace on this issue.”

is an excuse to discriminate against anyone on the basis of sexuality. How long before UKIP  allow discrimination against other groups who are “different” from  “Judeo-Christian Europeans”.

At the same time single parent families, those families with same sex parents, those who are unmarried with children should look at this document, produced by UKIP and ask themselves why they are somehow seen as second class, less able to provide a “secure and happy family”.

“Take the family, for instance. Traditional Christian views of marriage and family life have come under attack of late, whereas we have no problem in supporting and even promoting conventional marriage as a firm foundation for a secure and happy family.”

  

Ukip and the White Supremacists 

So far the start of Spring for Ukip has been a time of white supremacists, holocaust deniers and a fake poster designed to incite racial hatred.

White Supremacists and Holocaust Deniers

Charlton Edwards, ukip member and committee member in Tonbridge, is worried about The Genocide of the white peoples of Europe. He lives in one of the whitest bits of the UK, but he is concerned that the EU are planning to create a mixed race population of people who have no knowledge of “British Culture”. He tweeted a link to a blog by ex BNP now apparently National Strike Force member Sean Moran ( his Twitter bio says, Alternative media truth seeker & White survivalist. Multiculturalism is jewish racial supremacy by fraudulent debt slavery & White genocide. Victory or Death! ). 

Mr Morans blog, cigpapers, is well know for anti Semitic content, it’s denial of the holocaust and it’s belief in the Coudenhove-Kalergi plan. To get an idea of how bonkers the belief in this plan is  you could read this, but be warned this links to Daily Stomer a white supremacist web site .. To quote from the site:

From the beginning, the EU has been a Jewish operation. It has two main goals:
1. To destroy every one of the different European Nation States by consuming all of them under the non-ethnic specific name ‘European’, while at the same time consolidating Jewish power at the top ruling over everyone.
2. To physically destroy all the different White ethnicities through forced integration and miscegenation with the Non-White hordes of Asia and Africa.

This is is what Charlton Edwards was linking to, this is what Jan was referring to in her interview with Robin Brant. As a long term Ukip supporter she was happy to talk about her belief in white genocide, you can watch the video here.

Linked to the belief in a plan to wipe out white European culture is the idea of Cultural Marxism. This is traditionally linked by white supremacists to “Jews”.  It’s a theory that connects White Supermacists, holocaust deniers, Anders Breivek

‘Anders Breivik killed young social democrats because he believed that their party was involved in a cultural marxist plot to undermine traditional European values by means of mass immigration from the Islamic world.’  

And Paul Nuttall 

 
If you want to read two contrasting views on Cultural Marxism there is this from The Guardian and this from Smash Cultural Marxism  ( guess which one agrees with Paul Nuttall ).

The Fake Poster 
Ukip Bristol are not doing well when it comes to not being controversial on social media. There are already blogs on the subject of Bristol Ukip, here and here.

Yesterday they posted this:

 
This is a fake quote and a fake poster, created by a white supremacist and ex Ukip member Joshua Bonehill Paine, a convicted criminal and online troll. The link is to a blog set up by Joshua and is virulent in its Anti Semitism and racism. This tweet was retweeted by a few,  mostly by the far right. This in itself suggests to whom is might appeal! 

   
But hapless Bristol Ukip are the not the only ukip mugs who would chose to tweet material designed to encourage racial hatred of black people.

 
And yesterday evening David Vance also tweeted it, the initial retweets by Joshau Pain and all his sock accounts being a clue to exactly who is reposnsible for the fake.
 

You would think that a reasonable person when faced with the fact what they have posted a fake quote, designed to stir up racial hatred, would remove the post. But no, most of the tweeters, including Mr Vance, have compounded their mistake by posting tweets defending it on the basis that she has said stuff they think is racist in the past. 

Ukip has a Deputy Leader who wrote a news article accusing the left of Cultural Marxism, a conspiracy theory whose main proponents are white supremacists and holocaust deniers. Ukip has supporters and members who will happily tweet a fake poster that was designed to incite racial hatred. Ukip is retreating into its core vote and it’s clear that some of these have similar beliefs to white supremacists. 

As a postscript this is the original picture that was photoshopped.

  
And another to add is the retweeting habits of Manchester Central PPC candidate Myles Power.

  

HEY UKIP it’s feminism not the end of civilisation!

It’s clear ukip still don’t know what feminism is .. So to help them along

aliberallife

Since the EU elections the shrill voice of UKIP supporters has been employed to bang on about the 7 female MEPs that UKIP has now got, well done UKIP but I seem to recollect that the population is 51/50 not 31/50. They claim meritocracy, they claim quotas are a form of Communist Marxist Fascism (yes really they find differentiating between political philosophies a tad taxing). They assume that the only thing women want are quotas, and yet a great many feminists do not place them high up on a list of wants.

So just for UKIP men (and it is mostly men) here are a few definitions of what feminism is. The Oxford English Dictionary is pretty clear “The advocacy of women’s rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes” or this from Merriam Webster “the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes”

Farage and the Teaparty 

‘In Farage’s new book he has revealed who his political “soulmate” is on the American stage, Rand Paul. 

Over the course of that half-hour, I realised that in Rand Paul I had found my political doppelgänger. Raheem later made the point that you couldn’t get a cigarette paper between the two of us on the issues we discussed.

So who is Rand Paul, a front runner for the Tea Party nomination for republican candidate for president and the son of Ron Paul.  

He is the son of a man who believes that The Civil Rights Act which in the US United States repealed the Jim Crow laws; forced schools, bathrooms and buses to desegregate; and banned employment discrimination, supported by all those in congress bar one. In 2004  when Ron Paul ( erstwhile tea party elder) had the chance to cast a symbolic vote against it in 2004, when the House of Representatives took up a resolution “recognizing and honouring the 40th anniversary of congressional passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. He was the only member who voted “no.”

Ron Paul would say that as a Libertarian he believes he is colour blind and in no way racist ( recognise the wording ). That his desire to repeal the Civil Rights act is because it  

“undermine[d] the concept of liberty” and “destroyed the principle of private property and private choices.”

By private property Ron believes that if you wish to refuse service or employment to someone based on their sexuality or their colour, that’s your right and the government should not interfere. 

So far so Farage and equalities legislation!

The problem with Ron Paul and Farage is that they are willing to let the fringes of their party do and say as they wish in the name of libertarianism. 

Below are some quotes from the newsletter sent out with Ron Pauls name on them, via The Atlantic 

    “Given the inefficiencies of what DC laughingly calls the criminal justice system, I think we can safely assume that 95 percent of the black males in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal.” 
    “We are constantly told that it is evil to be afraid of black men, it is hardly irrational.” 
    After the Los Angeles riots, one article in a newsletter claimed, “Order was only restored in L.A. when it came time for the blacks to pick up their welfare checks.”  
    One referred to Martin Luther King Jr. as “the world-class philanderer who beat up his paramours” and who “seduced underage girls and boys.” 

Of course you can not visit the crimes of the parent on a child, so how about Rand Paul. Well he’s a candidate for a tin foil hat – in this video he obsesses over the idea of a single currency through the Americas that “he knows is coming” 

I saw the YouTube of Vincente Fox [former president of Mexico] talking about the Amero. So, it’s not a secret. now it may not be [inaudible] tomorrow, but it took ’em 20 or 30 years to get the Euro, and they had to push people kicking and screaming into the Euro.

So far so Farage and his EU foil hat!

On the subject of civil rights legislation, Rand Paul claims it stifles freedom of speech 

So far so Farage and his demonisation of PC! 

In an interview with Rachel Maddow he was asked about desegregating restaurants 

Maddow:… How about desegregating lunch counters?
Paul: Well what it gets into then is if you decide that restaurants are publicly owned and not privately owned, then do you say that you should have the right to bring your gun into a restaurant even though the owner of the restaurant says ‘well no, we don’t want to have guns in here’ the bar says ‘we don’t want to have guns in here because people might drink and start fighting and shoot each-other.’ Does the owner of the restaurant own his restaurant? Or does the government own his restaurant? These are important philosophical debates but not a very practical discussion…
Maddow: Well, it was pretty practical to the people who had the life nearly beaten out of them trying to desegregate Walgreen’s lunch counters despite these esoteric debates about what it means about ownership. This is not a hypothetical Dr. Paul.

I am sure Nigel Farage does not admire Mr Pauls rather odd views on equality, does he? Or admire his choice in campaign spokesmen who had this on his FB page for two years: 

  

Perhaps he admires the Tea Party and this is why he think Rand Paul is his political doppelgänger, the tea party, that in Tennessee said take slavery out of school books and does not believe in evolution or climate change 

So far so Farage and climate change!

So far so ukip and revising history! 

As we move ever closer to the General Election it’s a wise person who looks to see who those who seek to represent us admire. 

Farage and the HIV lie

Nigel uses HIV to illustrate the cost of Health Tourism, his figures were 7000 new diagnosis of HIV each year 60% of whom are not British Citizens.

Let’s break down the figures on where people were infected for Nigel, using the HIV 2014 report. All figures are new cases for 2013.  The report looks at two measures, where people became infected and where they were born.

 

First Nigel got the number of new cases wrong.

Second Nigel got the percentage infected overseas very very wrong, in fact he doubled it  – this is important as Ukip use this figure to suggest AIDS infected migrants come here deliberately looking for treatment. 

Third he neglected to mention the actual cost of treating all these HIV health tourists is considerably less than 1p per UK citizen per year. 

Of course he could have been confused by this: 

The proportion of new HIV diagnoses reported among people born in Africa halved from 54% in 2004 to 25 % in 2013. This has resulted in an increase in the proportion of new diagnoses reported among people born in the UK from 32% to 46%. From the Public Health Report on HIV in the UK 2014  

But many of these will be young adults born overseas, who came to UK with their parents and are now UK citizens – 48% of whom became infected in the UK. 

We could give Nigel the benefit of the doubt, and assume he did not choose this example because it is used by the far right BNP to demonise Black African men, but let’s not .. It was another dog whistle for the racists.

 

 Nigel Farage and UKIP can see the writing on the wall. The party is losing those on the periphery back to the tories, leaving a core of 10% who will vote for him whatever he says. The disgraceful demonisation of our fellow human beings by Nigel Farage was rightly challenged by Leanne Wood and received one of the only claps of appreciation from a lacklustre audience. Nigel lies on a regular basis, his party is based on a lie and thankfully, looking at the polls, they are going to be very disappointed come 7th May. 

A good friend has pointed out that The Guardian has been myth busting as well today.
