The BBC aired a documentary titled “Young, British & Angry”, watch here on the BBC website, in which Ben Anderson spent time with members of the EDL – English Defence League, to see what is motivating more and more young men to join up.
Two of the EDL’s leading lights, Sikh Guramit Singh, and Luton based Kevin Carroll tried their desperate best to prove that the EDL are not racist, yes, you did read that correctly, the EDL are NOT racist.
These racist idiots barely need to open their mouths and you’ll realise the racist intent that they have. Guramit Singh who prostitutes himself to become the “EDL Posterboy” addresses his baying goons with:
It’s clear to anyone with half a brain, that a self hating individual like Singh has been promoted to prove that the EDL are a non-racist party.
The above picture shows Singh, with one Charlie Flowers, leader of cyber bully group “The Cheerleaders” whom MPACUK ran a series of exposing articles on earlier this year.
The other gentlemen concerned, Kevin Carroll, tries to show he’s not racist by wheeling out his daughter, who happens to be mixed race. The old “I’m not a racist, I have black friends” routine played out to perfection. Kevin wasn’t as forthcoming when he couldn’t explain why he supported the nomination of a BNP candidate.
The most pathetic attempt by the EDL was to wheel out “Abdul”, a “Muslim only by name” from Glasgow at one of their racist meets. The footage then shows a afro caribbean youth who joined the EDL, talking up how good the EDL are, that’s before they began their monkey chants aimed at rival UAF protesters of course.
The good people of England showed that they will not stand for any sort of racism in the recent elections, when the BNP were decimated as any sort of political force.
Their grievances are being vented towards Muslims, but the underlying causes need to be examined. The EDL war against Islam is simply a catalyst, a rallying cry if you will, that is being used to recruit young, angry, white, working class males, who are disenfranchised and feel that there is no real hope, and no future prospects for them in the UK.
Shockingly, a lot of the issues they face, are no different to the problems faced by working class communities all over the UK. The socio-economic troubles we are in do not discriminate on the grounds of colour or creed, if you’re poor, and live in an “traditional economic” area, then chances are the new economy paradigm will not suit you, as you do not have the skill set to get ahead in life.
This is the real issue that needs to be addressed now, “social mobility” is an issue which New Labour failed us with. In an earlier post I showed how the divide between rich and poor has never been greater to the extent that a recent study showed that London’s Rich-Poor gap was its widest since the days of slavery.
We have a long hot summer ahead of us, let’s ensure it’s one where hatred does not come to its boiling point.
