Tories and fascists

'Letters from a Tory' linked to Nick Griffin's radio interview about how the EU should start sinking boats in the Mediterranean to stop people from Africa coming to Europe. It's not hard for any decent person, whether Labour, Tory or whatever, to criticise this evil, racist, stupid and ineffective idea.

Or so you might have thought. But at the first mention of immigration, he and his chums appeared to have forgotten that Tories are meant to be against the "left wing" BNP. Here's their response:

"In olden times people arriving to live in your land and take your resources were called invaders. We killed them. I bet every invading army has had a fair few economic migrants hoping to profit from their entry into new lands but that doesn’t change the characteristic of invasion!"

"Whether or not sinking ships is the answer I’m not too sure. Perhaps we could build some walls in order to keep the undesirables out? There’s certainly no historical precedent suggesting that this would be a flawed idea….."

"Well, yes, but they didn’t have feeble asylum systems and ridiculous human rights laws back in those days."

"Stop making the UK the land of milk and honey for the invaders and they will stop coming and many will leave."

"Very over the top statement but in essence he’s right. We have to put a stop to it. I obviously don’t believe that people should murdered but I do believe that we need to stem the tide of refugees coming to Europe...Britain, the shining example of democracy and free speech has now become an anal, totalitarian state because we are not allowed to say anything. We are even being forced to employ foreigners in the name of equality. Is that anyway to run a business? I would not employ someone who is likely to run straight to the equality commission because of a silly joke or a word said in anger...We can’t all afford BUPA and private schools! It’s got to stop and now!"

And the best bit of all? The individual who left that last comment is "an expatriate in involuntary exile in Spain. I decided to leave my beautiful country because it no longer felt like my home and if home is where you hang your hat or sombrero, then it may as well be somewhere warm. I will return when my country has been restored with all it's rights and freedoms!"

Are you honestly trying to convince your readers that these comments were all completely serious? How can you not spot when people are having a laugh - didn't comments like 'building walls around this country' tip you off?!

And besides, trying to portray all my readers as conservatives is wildly inaccurate, bordering on insulting for some of them!

Anyone who cares to read their comments will see that most of your posters are approving of Griffin, even if they think his suggestion of sinking the boats is going a 'bit too far'.

Well they are certainly not socialists!

Except this is hardly the first time that one of LFaT's posts on the BNP has prompted a slew of BNP-lite responses, is it?

In fact, I'm struggling to think of right-wing blogs that don't attract pro-BNP comments on such threads. The reason for that is simple - LFaT et al may not like the BNP, but they're quite happy to use them as a stick to beat their enemies.

BNP voters, I can vaguely empathise with, since they're uniformly thick and prejudiced. Tories cursing the BNP out of one side of their mouths while bigging up the Very Real Concerns of their voters from the other are hypocritical, verminous bastards. To be mocked and ridiculed every time they open their mouths.

LFaT, I hate to be so stuffy, but was that 'having a laugh'?

Good spot, terrible effort by Letter Writing Tory to right it all off as a joke.

It is in a way, a bad one.
