It’s a bank holiday weekend. The sun is out. So it’s time for the EDL to combat Muslamic Terror by marching through the streets of Newcastle in balaclavas scaring people which is of course how murder victim Lee Rigby would love to have his name to be associated with after his death. Thankfully a counter-demo scared the brave EDL off the streets and ended up hiding behind the police.
Last night here in Bristol an EDL march was planned to go from the outskirts of the city into the city centre as there’s a number of big events in the city this weekend and what better way to protest against the pointless murder of a soldier than trying to kick off riots in his name? Thankfully they got as far as a Wetherspoons pub which they smashed up before being nicked for criminal damage.
There’s also a number of people, including UKIP members distributing this piece of fascist filth as an idea to solve the Muslim ”problem”. We’re also back to the idea that it’s all Muslims fault for letting these people be radicalised and commit a brutal murder as Tory and Labour politicians try to outwanker each other.
There’s also no mention by the EDL of the women who sat with Rigby as he died, or confronted the murderers but seeing as one is mixed-race and unemployed that doesn’t fit a lot of the media’s narrative either, so that’s why that and the fact thousands of Muslims have been praying for peace aren’t featuring in the narrative because that makes things a bit too complex.
I’m sure Lee Rigby’s family don’t want his name used by the EDL in order to commit acts of violence and racism against people and property. I’m sure they’d rather be left in peace to deal with the trauma they’ve suffered and take whatever genuine help they’ve been offered rather than the support of a group of people who represent nothing good about the people they proclaim to protect.
The fact you hear so many EDL members chanting ‘no surrender’ gives the game away as to what many of these people are are, and we have to stand up to the thuggery, the violence and most of all the sheer stupidity of the EDL and what they stand for.
Taking aside the comedy value of that screenshot (and here’s the Facebook page of the joker in question), don’t let the ‘freedom of speech’ argument put you off standing up to them. They don’t believe in freedom of speech as they only want it running one way. So the more you push and prod the EDL, not to mention any bigot spouting shite, the more you’ll push them back. You might even get some to see sense. Hopefully.
And lastly, whoever did this is a bloody genius. If it actually was real then the EDL are thicker than I thought.
