While those of us who have steeled ourselves to read the BNP's manifesto long ago realised that their programme of nationalisation and protectionism were collectivist policies—and thus of the Left.
However, if you are in any doubt, Dizzy did a comprehensive fisk of their economic policies a little while ago.
"Ah!" I hear you cry. "But they are racists and that must mean that they are Right-wing!"
In answer to this, I shall repost this quote that I found at the Nameless Libertarian's place...
"Racism is simply an ugly form of collectivism, the mindset that views humans strictly as members of groups rather than individuals. Racists believe that all individuals who share superficial physical characteristics are alike: as collectivists, racists think only in terms of groups.
"By encouraging Americans to adopt a group mentality, the advocates of so-called "diversity" actually perpetuate racism. Their obsession with racial group identity is inherently racist. The true antidote to racism is liberty. Liberty means having a limited, constitutional government devoted to the protection of individual rights rather than group claims.
"Liberty means free-market capitalism, which rewards individual achievement and competence, not skin color, gender, or ethnicity."—Ron Paul
Still, one thing does rather puzzle me...
How is it that that stout bastion of the free-market capitalism, individual achievement and competence—known as the North of England—actually elected two of these disgusting far-Left BNPers?
