How appropriate that an organisation which identifies genuine public concerns about immigration, multiculturalism, and enforced diversity as “hate”, includes the name of that extreme emotion in its very title.
The dismal “Hope Not Hate” group has been forced out of the shadows after MEP Nigel Farage correctly identified them as extremists who use violent and undemocratic means to further their aims.
The fact that Hope Not Hate has taken upon itself the trouble of creating a convoluted campaign of lies, misinformation and aggressive persuasion against its protagonists is more proof (along with the Cantle report, the Casey report, mounting Guardian hysteria etc etc) that Britain is now an insecure society, ill at ease with itself and running out of patience with establishment elites.
Totally out of touch with public opinion, Hope Not Hate have created a fantasy world where they apply their self styled “…positive antidote to the politics of hate...[where]….we combine first class research with community organising & grassroots actions to defeat hate groups at elections and to build community resilience against extremism.”!
Of course, none of this occurs with any public debate or democratic mandate as they are not a registered political party, hence they are freed the constraints of having public scrutiny of their ideas and methods, allowing them licence to do as they please, riding roughshod over traditional British values of fair play, tolerance and openness.
And look at their “patrons” – transvestite fool Eddie Izzard, hectoring Champagne socialist and working class hero Billy Bragg (he of the £2M+ Dorset pile), millionairess and lefty - Baroness Glenys Kinnock (estimated worth £10M), plus assorted black “rappers” and other strange folk.
Hope Not Hate openly boast about their meddlings in other folks’ business, from “exposing” what they see as “racist and homophobic councillors” to a so called “unity event” in Birmingham, with “representatives of the Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Sikh and Muslim communities coming together (alongside local trade union, community, arts, business and political leaders) to discuss how Birmingham’s communities can work together to address the challenges they face”.
Evidently, they care naught for the traditional culture and identity of Britain, which has made us such a great and successful nation in the past.
Their total rejection of British values of democracy and tolerance couldn’t have been better illustrated by the millions of leaflets they put out during legitimate BNP election campaigns in the past, lying to and bullying a gullible electorate about BNP policies, yet not standing their own candidates in the election.
This is typical behaviour of the sort of totalitarian groups which in the past have reacted to desperate situations by desperate methods.
Let us hope that any forthcoming legal action against Hope Not Hate’s critics will expose their rotten, hate filled heart to the rest of the world.
