For, via Martin, I notice that Nick Griffin is on trial for "race-hate" charges. Apparently, he said some nasty things about Asians.
The British National Party leader, Nick Griffin, told a public house audience that white society had turned into a multiracial hellhole as Asian Muslims aimed to conquer the country, a court heard yesterday.
Well, there are people in this country who would tend to agree with Mr Griffin. Particularly those in Bradford, for instance.
After making a series of claims about Muslim gangs grooming and raping children, Griffin said: "The bastards that are in that gang, they are in prison, so the public think it's all over. Well it's not. Because there's more of them. The police force and elected governors haven't done a damn thing about it.
"Their good book [the Koran] tells them that that's acceptable. If you doubt it, go and buy a copy and you will find verse after verse, and you can take any woman you want as long as it's not Muslim women."
Well, the first bit is a bit paranoid, but the last two sentences are true enough.
Mr Jameson said Griffin had said Asian community leaders would condemn the attacks to the press, but not to the attackers themselves. "It's part of their plan for conquering countries. It's how they do it," Griffin said.
Mr Griffin would not be the first to notice the hypocrisy of people like our own dear Iqbal, as well as other imans. Unfortunately, the Beeb don't seem to have done nearly as much undercover reporting in mosques as they have at BNP meetings. It would probably be a violation of our Muslim friends' rights or something.
However, whether or not what he said is correct or not, in this country he should have a right to say it. That is, after all, what the point of free speech is. That, you know, you can say what you like; speech is, erm, free.
Martin maintains that "if Mr. Griffin loses his case, the end of free speech in Britain is at hand." He is wrong. The very fact that this has come to trial shows, all too clearly, that free speech in Britain has already come to an end. Free speech in this country is dead, so you'd better watch what you say in the pub, my dears—even when pissed—or next thing you know, you'll find yourself up in court.
So, whatever Mr Griffin's views, this blog will support him in his case. Because, frankly, your humble Devil does not know who he finds more repulsive: the BNP or the Labour government. But, generally speaking, I'm leaning towards the government at the moment.
And I'm bolloxed if that shower of fucking fascist shitwits are going to control what I say, the cock-knocking, arse-munching bunch of cunts.
Robert Locke has started a new site dealing with this, The Truth Is No Defence, so go and sign the petition. Or does your love for free speech not include those with whom you disagree? How strong are your convictions?
