Thankfully, and with great admiration for my parents, I was brought up to view people as just that, people. I was not brought up to distinguish people, like breeds of animal, based on race or cultural background. I was brought up to respect the differences between us, whether white or black or Asian; gay or straight; Christian or Muslim. We’re all human, we’re all reliant on each other. It is humanity that has made great breakthroughs socially, scientifically, and medically, not a particular race. As a result of my liberal upbringing, the idea that we must “preserve” the “white race” is as ridiculous as claiming to be desperate to preserve the blue eyed race.
The local elections, pushed the agenda of the British National Party to a much bigger audience, angered at the recent expenses scandal and the growingly powerless Prime Minister. They certainly look set to make gains in the E.U Parliament, come tonight’s results, which will indeed put added pressure on the Prime Minister, and Alan Johnson over at the Home Office.
The most abhorrent political Party to exist in the U.K at the moment, preying on the Working Classes, gained a seat in Leicestershire’s, Coalville Council. It saddens me, because this is the City I grew up in. I love the diversity. The Diwali celebrations that attract thousands to the City every year, is great for cultural awareness, education, and the local economy. It’s a mixed culture, I’m privileged to belong to.
Amusingly, the BNP have been using pictures on their websites, of ordinary families, and quotes about why they will be voting BNP. Except of course, that the photos are from different websites, not affiliated with the BNP, and the quotes are made up, by the BNP. You couldn’t make this shit up.
The BNP, last month, held a day to celebrate the work of the armed forces of Britain, and tried to portray themselves as the “only party that supports our troops”.
And so this brings me on to the truly shocking response by the BNP, to the to the heroic British soldier, Lance-Corporal Johnson Beharry.
Born in Grenada, Johnson Beharry is already among the people that the British
Nazi National Party consider to be detrimental to British society, given that he’s foreign, and he’s black.
On March 18th 2005, he was awarded the Victoria Cross for valor. A year earlier, whilst driving a Warrior Tracked Armoured Vehicle in Iraq, his vehicle was ambushed; hit by several rocket propelled grenades, the platoon commander along with a number of soldiers were badly injured and radio communication was destroyed along with the periscope – used by the driver to see where he’s going. Beharry therefore, had to open the hatch and drive whilst exposing his face to enemy fire. He drove the broken machine to the edge of the ambush zone, and extracted all of his wounded comrades, to safety, whilst all the time, he himself was exposed to enemy fire.
A month later, in the area of Al Amarah, the convoy was ambushed again. And again, his comrades were badly injured. Beharry himself received serious shrapnel injuries to the face and brain. Despite those serious injuries, he drove to safety, through rocket fire, which in turn, saved the lives of all of his men. He then lost consciousness and had to go through brain surgery.
He was rightfully reward the distinguished Victoria Cross for bravery in the face of such extreme adversity.
A BNP article, stated of Beharry “All he did was drive away very fast from a combat zone.” The article then stated “The politically correct Ministry of Defence decided to elevate this particular occasion to something worthy of the VC.” Suggesting that Beharry was awarded the Victoria Cross, simply because he’s black. Nick Griffin claimed that all Beharry had achieved, was “routine” and then went on to call him an “immigrant“, refusing to acknowledge Beharry’s bravery and courage, saving the lives of many men, for Britain.
They speak of “politically correct Britain“. Yes, I suppose we have become overly politically correct, given that sixty years after the Holocaust, we’re allowing Nazis to represent the British public.
Given that Griffin has spent his life getting grotesquely overweight, and pathetically Hitler-esque in his disgusting views, having fought for nothing, saved no one, promoted racial tension and violence, I’m not sure where he gets the nerve from, to criticise the absolute bravery and honour of a British Soldier. The BNP are not patriotic, nor are they standing up for Britain, they are an ideology. Britain is not based on an ideology. Especially one of such hate and suspicion. The BNP are simply an ideology catering to thugs and those members of society that do not engage brain activity. They absolutely disgust me. For anyone that voted BNP at these Council and E.U elections. You too, disgust me.
