Bizarrely, the fake left ‘anti-fascist’ campaign group Hope not Hate has demanded an end to political bullying after a Tory MP and a couple of mainstream journalists were shouted at by pro-democracy activists outside Westminster earlier this week.
In a statement, Hope not Hate said: “It is time for the authorities to clamp down on the bullying and threatening tactics before someone is seriously injured.”
The current director of Hope not Hate, Nick Lowles MBE, is a former supporter of the violent activist group Anti-Fascist Action, which confronted and attacked political rivals during the eighties and early nineties. He was later editor of the communist ‘anti-fascist’ Searchlight magazine which exposed political rivals, particularly those who opposed mass immigration and multiculturalism, to violence, bullying and intimidation by so-called ‘anti-fascist’ activists.
Another Hope not Hate operative is the moronic Matthew Collins, currently a member of the Communist Party, but previously a member of the National Front in his youth before defecting to Searchlight and writing a self-serving book about his brief time in the nationalist movement.
In the past, Hope not Hate has been funded by the British State to combat the English Defence League (hence Lowles’ MBE) and received cash from the open borders uber finance capitalist George Soros. It remains close to the pro-Blair right-wing of the Labour party and a former deputy director of Hope not Hate, Ruth Smeeth, now sits as a Labour MP. Smeeth herself forced out a black Labour party member whom she accused of ‘bullying’ her at a press conference concerning ‘anti-semitic’ bullying within the party.
The Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow, described the confrontation outside parliament thus: “Let’s be quite clear, it is a type of fascism….a pattern..of burly white men who are effectively targeting members, most notably female and those from ethnic minority backgrounds.” Ironically, Bercow himself has been accused of bullying behaviour by fellow MPs and members of staff in Westminster, most of them women.
The Guardian journalist, Owen Jones, who was also surrounded by pro-democracy activists had previously taken part in a demonstration against BNP MEPs, Nick Griffin and Andrew Brons, who were holding a press conference outside Westminster. The event had to be abandoned after missiles were thrown at the recently elected MEPs.
The hypocrisy of the fake left and liberal establishment is staggering and their proxy media is currently hounding the leading activists involved in the pro-democracy demonstration at their behest with demands to curtail protests outside Westminster and arrest those who shout things at those in positions of power.
And regardless of the historical provenance of the word, surely ‘fascism’ isn’t when the people heckle the powerful, it’s when the powerful arrest the people for heckling them!
