Anti-democratic extremists, Unite Against Facism, have again targetted a lawful BNP rally in the name of anti-facism. The fact that they are display classic traits of facism themselves seems to be lost on the far left.
The fact is, no matter how odious the BNP are, they have as much right to exist and promote their extremist agenda as the facist anti-facists.
Once again, the anti-BNP extremists turned violent and riot police had to sort them out. Socialist Unity thinks the protest was great and the violence perfectly justified because some of the locals turned out to say they didn’t like the BNP. Presumably the illiberal left will be more than happy to see Liebour rallies banned in Tory constituencies because the majority of people there don’t like Liebour? No, somehow I don’t think they will because their prejudice is directed only at the BNP.
The anti-facist facists lost their argument when they called for the banning of a legal political party and the disenfranchisement of tens of thousands of voters who don’t buy into their militant, far left anarchist agenda.
