English Defence League: 'It's Not Racist to Oppose Muslim Extremists'

Check London's Telegraph, "The English Defence League: Will the Flames of Hatred Spread?":

Tommy, spokesman for the English Defence League (EDL), was adamant: there were to be no pictures of him or the other masked men holding the makeshift swastika flag before it was set alight. Otherwise, it might look as though they were supporting Nazism – which, we were assured, they abhorred.

It was both sinister and comic, this nocturnal gathering in a disused office block near the centre of Luton. There were 16 of them, mostly big men in black balaclavas sewn up into masks, wearing black T-shirts sporting the Cross of St George. The location had been kept secret until the last minute to preserve “security”.

The boys of the EDL “Luton Division” were milling about in the half darkness as The Daily Telegraph was shown in. Most appeared a little jumpy, unsure of their role in the coming stunt, but not the man going by the name of Tommy Robinson. He was smaller than most of them, but clearly in charge. Articulate, too. Look around, he said, couldn’t we see there were black men here, as well as whites. This was not a racist organisation.

“We are doing this to challenge Islamic extremists who have been unchallenged in our country for 10 to 15 years. They are recruiting on our streets and colleges and the government is doing nothing.”

Plus, "Arrests as Rival Race Demonstrations Clash." And from the comments there, Laura Roberts:

Hardly a surprise. It's the start of Rivers of Blood.

I abhor racism: and that means racism from ALL sides. If you continue to impose one incoming race's laws and preferences on the indigenous people of a country, you are going to create massive turmoil, disruption, antagonism, anger, resentment and confusion.

I have lived around the world. I know of no other country that welcomes foreigners into it that hate it with a venom. I know of no other country that destroys it's own culture, traditions, values and everything that makes it that particular country, as we do when we try to change it to suit incomers. I know of no other country embarrassed of it's own flag, where any patriotism that on the one hand we are urged to celebrate is slammed as racism at other times.

When I have lived around the world, I rejoice in their cultures and their pride for their country, heritage and customs. I modify my behaviour to theirs and even when I have to cover my head, or take off my shoes, or have to be escorted because a lone woman out and about is not permitted I do so unquestioningly so, and I honour their rules.

I know of no other country on earth that diminishes it's own culture and gives in to the demands of visitors and newcomers that we must adapt to them, rather than the other way round. They would not do the same in their country.

And so we have a growing anger, sometimes irrational and extreme, but mostly highly rational and deserved, and it will only get worse until the traditions and culture of Britain is restored and celebrated, just as other countries do with theirs.

Failure to do so will result in carnage.

The situation is about to blow in the UK. The ethnic English have been having to play second fiddle to the Scots and Welsh for years now, given that those two nations have individual parliaments of their own and England does not... it must make do with the UK parliament and not have any local representation in their country.

And now, the Muslims are virtually taking over England, forcing the country to change long-standing laws that our own are based upon (the British Common Law). There are entire sections of London that are "no go" areas for the police. They are under Sharia law.

I honestly don't think they're going to put up with it much longer.

England is bloody forked.

Just ask Michael Savage.

I wonder just how long it will be before the palace guards are forced to replace their Beafeater hats with turbans?
