Yesterday’s posting on the Lancaster Unity website entitled ‘Different faces, same hatred – Breivik and EDL’, serves to remind us that whereas the criminal responsible for the twin atrocities of Oslo and Utøya lies in custody, the Unite Against Fascism (UAF) campaign is resolutely determined to find additional scapegoats here in Britain. Witchfinders always need witches, and UAF being the contemporary collective equivalent of Witchfinder General Mathew Hopkins, is calling forth its helpers to assert that ‘the mark’ has been found that demonstrates the satanic pact between the EDL and Anders Breivik.
“Aye Master Lennon, will ye not confess to consorting with Breivik through spirits aerial? Here, behold the evidence! Are these not the words of one of your mewling familiars? Look you sir! Were pleasantries not exchanged at a distance? Was the corporeal presence of Breivik not summoned up by your spells, by the power of words fascistical? Aye, he suckled at the very teat of fascism and drank lustily of its milk! You Sir bear the mark, for the stamp of the swastika shows despite the denial. Is not denial the very sign of your guilt? We have already slain a griffin, so should we not prove capable of slaying a man? Fascist serpent!
Come followers, let us ride to Tower Hamlets and incite the righteous ire of our Muslim brethren! Let us fan the blaze in preparation for an immolation unto Allah! Saturday 3 September shall be our day, when our cocks shall crow for a new dawn! We shall snort and stamp like bulls, and rend the air with our virtuous cries! “Who’s streets? Our streets! Nazi scum, off our streets! Muslim and gay, unite and pray! Hack our heads off, another day!”
Alternatively, this is how the Lancaster Unity blog would prefer to justify its jamboree of indignation:
UAF has produced a poster – different faces, same hatred – warning that Norway killer Anders Behring Breivik was inspired by the poisonous politics of the English Defence League.
The poster shows Breivik – a fascist who hates multiculturalism, Muslims and the left – and “Tommy Robison”, leader of the EDL, an organisation of racist and fascist thugs who hate multiculturalism, Muslims and the left.
Breivik boasted of his links with the EDL and was inspired by its ideas. The national demo against the EDL on Saturday 3 September in Tower Hamlets, east London, is a chance to show our opposition to the homegrown racists and fascists of the EDL and our horror at Breivik’s massacre in Norway.
