Nigel Farage has said that that the German chancellor (Angela Merkel) was partly responsible for the attack on a Berlin Christmas market. This was an attack which claimed the lives of 12 Germans.
On Twitter, Farage wrote: "Terrible news from Berlin but no surprise. Events like these will be the Merkel legacy."
Some news outlets have said that this was also a reference to the murder of Jo Cox. It's hard to work out if that was also Brendan Cox's (Jo Cox's husband) position. Nonetheless, Cox quickly responded: "Blaming politicians for the actions of extremists? That's a slippery slope Nigel."
Then Farage replied:
"Well of course he would know more about extremists than me, Mr Cox; he backs organisations like Hope Not Hate, who masquerade as being lovely and peaceful but actually pursue violent and very undemocratic means.
"And I'm sorry Mr Cox, it is time people started to take responsibility for what's happened. Mrs Merkel had directly caused a whole number of social and terrorist problems in Germany, it's about time we confronted that truth."
(Hope Not Hate is one of the three charities supported by a foundation set up in the name of Brendan Cox's late wife.)
One thing we need to note here is that Brendan Cox responded to a tweet by Nigel Farage, not the other way around. Wasn't Farage meant to reply to Cox at all? It seems that way. Despite that, Merkel does have a lot of responsibility for what happened in Germany.
Nigel Farage has been contacted by Hope Not Hate lawyers in response to his comments on LBC Radio.
Predictably, the extremist Hope Not Hate (which hates all patriots and everyone to the right of Jeremy Corbyn) itself replied:
"Nigel Farage's allegations against HOPE Not Hate on LBC today are a political smear, which is why our lawyers have written to Mr Farage demanding that he retracts and publicly apologises for his remarks, or face further legal action."
To move back to the situation in Germany, Mrs Merkel has said it would be "particularly sickening" if the Christmas market attacker is an asylum seeker. And, in a tweet, Marcus Pretzell MEP described those who had been killed as "Merkel's dead". (Does this mean that Pretzell will also be the victim of Leftist lawyers in their fight against the peoples of European?)
Nick Lowles and Leftist Lawfare
Hope Not Hate's Nick Lowles is a communist; though, for publicity reasons, I would guess that his preferred term nowadays would be 'socialist'. Of course it's hard to establish Nick Lowles's views in terms of documentary evidence because the Guardian, theIndependent and even right-wing newspapers have rarely interviewed or even discussed him; let alone asked him what his political views are on issues not directly related to “fighting racism and fascism”.
And just as Lowles frequently attempts to besmirch people by associating them – however tangentially – with Nazifascistbigots, so we should do the same with Nick Lowles himself. For example, he can be linked to the Communist Party of Great Britain, the Communist Party of Britain and various extremely violent “anti-fash” groups in the 1980s and 1990s. (Matthew Collins, Lowles's second-in-command, began life as a black/Nazi fascist: now he's a red fascist.)
Hope Not Hate's threat against Nigel Farage is yet another example of Leftist lawfare. Put this is the context of Robert Spencer, Pamela Geller and Geert Wilders being banned from the UK. Think of the state's persecution of Tommy Robinson. And then think of Louise Haigh's attempts to ban Britain First.
What else would Hope Not Hate ban or take to court if it had the political power to do so? After all, the banning of Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer from the UK was a direct response to Hope Not Hate activism. (Here is Hope Not Hate itself claiming victory!)
Thus, by Hope Not Hate's own reasoning, its own exhibitions, demos or activities should also be banned. Indeed since Hope Not Hate has called for the banning of political parties, groups and individuals (as well being the main force behind the omnipresent “no platform” policy), it can be said that Hope Not Hate itself should be banned because of its communist and totalitarian inclinations.
Some More Examples of Leftist Lawfare
*) Tommy Robinson (former leader of the EDL) was stopped from speaking at the Oxford Union on two occasions. He was systematically and endlessly persecuted by the police and legal system.
*) UKip members have been denied the right to work in certain places of employment and one Ukip couple had their foster children removed because of their political allegiances. In addition, the University of East Anglia “cancelled” (or banned) an appearance of a UKip candidate.
*) The criticism of Islam is severely curtailed on Facebook and, less so, on Twitter (probably because of its capsule form): numerous Facebook pages which were critical of Islam have been closed down.
*) Paul Weston (the leader of Liberty GB) was arrested for quoting the words of Winston Churchill.
*) Leftist and Muslim groups (as well as the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation at the United Nations) have called for the banning of what they call “hate blogs” and “hate sites”(i.e. those which are critical of Islam).
*) The Guardian newspaper and Leftists groups have called for the monitoring of “far-right” groups (though not for the monitoring of Islamic and Leftist groups); as well as the banning of demos and even the banning of political movements and organisations.
*) Tim Burton (Liberty GB) was taken to court by Tell Mama's Fiyaz Mughal. Mr Mughal lost the case. Then Tim Burton was taken to court again, by the very same person.
