The Revival of British Patriotism?

ukipBeside the birth of Prince George, the most significant event to take place in Britain over the last few months has been the incredible rise of a small party opposed to immigration, multiculturalism, the European Union, same-sex marriage — in short, all the things loved by the main parties and ruining Britain.

Coming almost from nowhere, with support of barely 5% of the population, the UK Independent Party (UKIP) had a historical victory in November 2012, achieving a record second place in the by-election held in the northern town of Rotherham to replace the resigning local Member of Parliament. It was the highest percentage of the vote ever achieved by UKIP in any parliamentary election: 21.8%.

This “safe seat” was previously held by Labor, which has provided the town’s MPs since 1933.

Another “far-right” party, the British National Party (BNP), came third, following the extreme-left, Islamophile Respect and the Conservatives.

The fact that the Labor-run Rotherham Council had removed children from a foster home only because the foster couple are members of UKIP played a role in the election results. The thought-police behavior of the council nauseated many.

Rotherham was also one of the numerous English towns where Muslim pedophile gangs were allowed to prey on white girls without being disturbed by local police, social services or the media for 20 years.

This shameful neglect of duty and cover-up, recently brought to light, may have won supporters for the BNP, which first alerted the public to the scandal years ago, but was ignored amid accusations of racism.

Then in February, in another by-election, UKIP did even better, polling 27.8% of the votes, coming in a close second to the Liberal Democrats, and pushing the not-so-conservative Conservative Party into third place.

In that by-election, in Eastleigh, southern England, 55% of all votes went to candidates who opposed the new same-sex marriage law about to be introduced in Britain. Many blamed the Conservative Party’s third place on its leader, Prime Minister David Cameron, who pushed for that law, the same man who had called UKIP supporters “closet racists, loonies, nutters and fruitcakes.”

And finally, in what was described by UKIP leader Nigel Farage as a “game changer,” reshaping British politics possibly forever and making it no longer a three-party, but four-party system, the UKIP stormed the May local elections throughout England and Wales, getting a quarter of the vote nationally, with an astonishing gain in number of seats from 8 to 147.

While someone described the Conservative Party in the coalition government as being on the left of the U.S. Democrats, there have been comparisons made between UKIP and the Tea Party.

Alas, the UKIP, in its ascent to power, has undergone a transformation. Its policy to put an end to the age of “mass uncontrolled immigration” through a 5-year-freeze on immigration and a cap of 50,000 people per annum on future immigration, its main selling point, is under review.

Its positions on Islam have increasingly shown signs of the same battered wife syndrome that has long affected the British elites vis-à-vis the religion of peace, to the point that UKIP is now indistinguishable on this issue from the three mainstream parties — Tories, Labour and Liberal Democrats.

A revealing example was a UKIP politician’s announced visit to a mosque in Scotland, the destination of a school trip that was opposed by almost a third of the schoolchildren’s parents. The man, Jonathan Stanley, said:

I am in no way condemning these parents, but I do not agree with this decision, and so I want to go and reassure the Muslim community.

Contrast this with the position of the BNP, whose Scottish organiser backed the parents:

Unlike UKIP, we fully back the growing number of parents who we feel are saying No to their children being taken to mosques, as if Islam is a part of Scottish heritage and culture, it is not. They are told all about the wonders of Islam, but there is no mention of Islam`s horrific Sharia law, no mention of women being classed as second rate beneath men, as per scriptural understanding. It`s all about cultural conditioning.

The problem with the BNP, though, is that it’s often been accused of having anti-Semitic and racist elements in its midst and even leadership.

How can UKIP take such a nonchalant approach to mosques, when we know that a high number of them are a hotbeds of Islamism and jihad?

Only Saturday, July 27th, the East London Mosque hosted a fundraiser for Cageprisoners, an Islamic charity for Muslim terrorists in prison, including those held at Guantanamo, calling for them to be freed.

These are busy days for British jihadists and counter-jihadists. This is the same mosque about which George Whale of Liberty GB sent a letter of protest to two MPs, which complained about the hundreds of people praying outside the mosque and occupying the pavement, something that has been going on for at least the past three years.

Liberty GB – to which I belong – was formed last March to fill the gap in British politics that exists between the UKIP, a clear Islam appeaser, and parties like the BNP with a less-than-clean reputation.

The party stands for Christian civilization, human rights, animal welfare, capitalism, and against jihad, multiculturalism and mass immigration, and it will contest the 2014 European Elections with its chairman Paul Weston as a candidate.

Liberty GB is part of the increasing British resistance to the Left’s imposition of its various politically correct agendas. This movement includes patriotic, nationalist groups and parties misleadingly called “far right.”

Paul Weston told me:

The rise of so called “right-wing” parties is logical and inevitable. If the Left control the institutions and the Left carry out the policies of mass immigration and divisive multiculturalism, then they can only realistically expect others to resist this path to national suicide. It is not about “right-wing ideology” to combat the Left on this issue, it is about national, racial and cultural survival – a perfectly natural, moral and civilised reaction to an unnatural, immoral and barbaric process propagated by the wicked and genocidally racist Left.

Weston is not new to Americans. He was in the U.S. early last year and made a speech hosted by Act for America in New York, warning America not to go down the same path Britain has taken. He’s planning another visit to the States in September or October.

Could the softening of UKIP’s positions explain its sharp decline in opinion polls, already evident in June and now even more pronounced? It was supported by 18% of respondents in May, 12% in June and now just 7%.

Could UKIP be repeating the mistake the GOP made in choosing half-conservative Romney as a presidential candidate? Maybe people want a clear, uncompromising message and don’t trust U-turns.

There has recently been in Britain a proliferation of nationalist groups and parties.

One of the best-known is the English Defence League (EDL), which is not a party, but a street protest movement. Among the parties, in addition to those already mentioned, are the British Democratic Party and English Democrats, and among the non-party groups are Britain First and England National Resistance.

This fragmentation is a good thing and a bad thing. On one hand, it is a sign of excessive discord and therefore weakness, which may be the result of the difficulty of doing political work when one is constantly accused of the worst thought crimes under the sun.

On the other hand, this mushrooming of truly conservative organizations is a sign of how dissatisfied the British public is with the vast shift of the nation’s politics to the extreme left. Being Christian in the UK is regarded as something to hide, to be ashamed of. The “culture wars” that in America are still being fought are over in Britain, having been won by the “progressives.”

The birth of future the king, Prince George, may indicate that some elements of traditional British culture and institutions are still alive and kicking, the monarchy being the best example.

But we’re not so lucky. Even that is under threat of corruption from the Islamophile monarch-in-waiting Prince Charles, who doesn’t recognize the primacy, let alone uniqueness, of Christianity, and from the new same-sex marriage law, which would lead to problematic legitimacy of heirs to the throne.

    The
    main critics of Islam are not ignorant about Islam or uneducated.
    Rather it is those that do not see Islam as a threat that need
    educating. The basic principles of Islam are responsible for all of
    the terror and violence that we witness daily on a global scale.
    Islam is the sayings and doings of one man Mohammed the perfect
    example to all Muslims. Mohammed’s doctrine is violent and
    intolerant. Islam apologists have no case, Islam is not a religion of
    peace, it is a religion of violence, conquest and oppression. The
    deeds and utterances of the Islamists are Islam.

    Paul Weston and Liberty GB is by far the best of the new parties. However, Britain is a society still very divided on class and regional grounds. I suggest that the dissident right parties divvy up the electoral map and run candidates in their respective districts of maximal strength without directly competing with each other. The ultimate objective will a right coalition government. Everybody may not get everything they want but the result will be to begin to move Britain in the right direction.

  • Sheik Yerbouti

    As long as they address it as the “Muslim Community” they will remain apart from British society and continue to flourish in enclaves that clearly hate all that is British. So what’s the point of having them there if they don’t want to become British? The same with Muslims in the US. Why go to the US if you have no intention of becoming and American?

    • chuckie2u

      I suppose this is Islams way of setting up colonies in other countries and forcing the Secularist into submitting to their demands before taking over the country.

    Fathers have enormous influence on their sons. I am sure that is no different for Prince Charles with his sons. Read Paul Weston’s outstanding article, The Rape of a Nation http://libertygb.org.uk/v1/index.php/news-libertygb/5948-the-rape-of-a-nation

    In the pic, Prince Charles is standing extremely close to devout Muslim and mass murderer, Chowdhury Mueen-Uddin. Strong support for devout, Quran-obedient Muslims is not just given by Prince Charles, but also by UK ruling elites. Endangering every Brit.

    LIBERTY GB: The Rape of a Nation: Still at large, for example, is Mr Chowdhury Mueen-Uddin (above left, with Prince Charles), who allegedly played his own small part in the massacre of hundreds of thousands of Bangladeshi civilians
    by Pakistani troops in 1971 when Bangladesh (then East Pakistan) was
    fighting for independence from Pakistan.

    Mueen-Uddin was a member of a fundamentalist party, Jamaat-e-Islami,
    which supported Pakistan in the war. In the closing days, as it became
    clear that Pakistan had lost, he is accused of being part of a the
    Al-Badr Brigade, which rounded up, tortured and killed prominent
    citizens to deprive the new state of its intellectual and cultural
    elite.

    Having made his way to Britain he helped to found the extremist
    Islamic Forum of Europe (IFE), Jamaat-e-Islami’s European wing, which
    believes in creating a sharia state in Europe. Up until 2010 Mr
    Mueen-Uddin was vice-chairman of the controversial East London Mosque,
    controlled by the IFE. He was also closely involved with the Muslim
    Council of Britain, which has been dominated by the IFE for years…

      But don’t forget that Princess Diana was killed in a car next to a Muslim.

    The BNP was not ignored by authorities but actually prosecuted by the Equities Commission for hate speech for telling the truth about Muslim pedophile gangs. Nick Griffin, BNP leader, was put on trial for hate speech and had to go to the High Court for a writ ordering this commission to enter documented facts proving his allegations thus collapsing the case against him. This prosecution backfired when the notoriety of this case gave him enough name recognition that he was elected to the European Parliament which has a proportional representational system.

    The problem is: Africa for Africa, Asia for ASians, White Countries for Everyone!!

    NO!! This is GEnocide.

    Bravo to Paul Weston. Badly needed.

    FTWR…………….

    • Mark

      Um… How about no. One of the main goals for this planet is for anyone to be able to live anywhere without fear of prosecution, The west – including Britain , is setting an example to the rest of the world. Of course its never going to be perfect – nothing is, but we can make the best of it, your kind of thinking just makes everything worse.

    EDL is within a step from being a political party, but Tommy is too smart to rush things. He is learning fast, and one day upper-class slobs will kneel before him (not that he wants it). TPTB are all turncoats, but England is strong with its people.

    The Revival of British Patriotism? Without question that heading is quite correct. We are using the General Election in 2015 as the REFERENDUM we have been denied and as we know, without doubt, all three major Political Parties want to remain in the EU-FOREVER, we are only going to vote for those Political Parties or Organisation that want freedom from foreign Rule-forever. It matters not one bit if they have never “governed” before, for all those we have voted for haven’t either, all they have done is obeyed EEC/EC/EU orders like the rest of us have done-but no much longer. Come the 2015 General election we are using it as our REFERENDUM. Without a doubt there is indeed a Revival of British Patriotism-and we are going to shake off the EU Citizenship that was foisted upon us and our Queen at Maastricht. British and proud to be so.

    The Brits created a spiritual void when they accepted Secularism and rejected Christianity. Islam is now filling the spiritual void with a God centered aggressive response. Now the Liberals will pay the price for the neglect of their heritage in the not to distant future. Secularism and Islam are not compatible.

  • krinks

    The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Islam is the enemy of Christ. Satan controls the Kingdoms of the Earth (Matthew 4:8-9). Islam is the friend of Satan. Islam will be pushed as a vehicle to attack true followers of Christ. That is why the Globalists love Islam and why not even gays and feminists say nothing. They all worship the same master.

  • BayouCoyote

    It’s either PW or destruction.

    Simple conclusion.

  • sybarite123

    Michael Coren of Sun Media TV interviewed Paul Weston about two years ago here in Canada. Since then I have followed Paul Weston on You Tube. His moderate but insightful presentations have marked him out in one American Radio Show, as a ‘Second Churchill”! Weston of course demurs, but he is perhaps the best man to lead Britain from the brink of disaster. A retired Catholic priest in Canada. Michael Coren is also on You Tube[a wonderful resource] and has interviewed Tommy Robinson as well. These two men to my knowledge are at the forefront of counter Jihad in England. However, both are reviled in the MSM, the BBC included. Weaker men would simply retire to an unchartered South Pacific Island as suggested by the conservative Marc Steyn author of ‘America Alone’ & ‘After America’. Also on You Tube, Frank Gaffney’s 10 part series on the Muslim Brotherhood in America! Although discernment is always needed, You Tube has become the only source of the Truth, and leaves the MSM either blind or complicit!

    Okay, im going to pick at one small point mentioned but which is extremely important – What the hell is wrong with multiculturalism? Every culture in the world has something valuable to teach, its far more open minded to learn about and live in different cultures. Besides, Britain is one of the worlds most multicultural countries. If you want to stop it, you’re late by a few thousand years – we’ve been mixing it up for a very long time: the Anglo-Saxons, Vikings, Romans and Normans are all examples of this. Then we have the British Empire, where we ourselves brought back customs and traditions from every corner of the empire – food is one of the best indicators of this, and indeed Indian cuisine is one of the most poular types of food in Britain!
    One of the most important things that makes us British, in my opinion, is our ability to accept new ideas and ways of living from different cultures.
