Why the rise of the far-right is terrible news for the disabled

Just a couple of days ago, the BNP, had an article on its website entitled 'Why The Rise of the BNP is Excellent News for Disabled People', in which it referred to the comments written on the blog of the editor of Disability Now following Nick Griffin's appearance on Question Time.
'I didn’t see the TV show, although I have followed its subsequent coverage. My personal feelings about Nick Griffin, the BNP and their views and policies wouldn’t allow me to watch regardless of whether he was challenged...

The fact that there exist people who believe that someone’s ethnicity, sexual orientation, relition or disabled status renders them targets for abuse, violence and murder is bad enough. The fact that there is a political party which supports and propagates such views and attempts to give them legitimacy is truly frightening...

If Griffin denies the Holocaust, which, despite his weasel words last night he clearly has and does, then he would also presumably deny T4, the programme instituted by Hitler for systematically “Exterminating” close to half a million disabled people in order to rid the 3rd Reich of their imperfections. Clearly there will be members of his party who would laud such action against our community. Fear the day when a BNP government might take the chance to institute a similar programme.'
The BNP's response to this fairly mild attack was to attack 'the Establishment' and, for some reason, the Jewish Chronicle.
'Of all the Establishment’s many and various efforts to undermine rising electoral support for the British National Party, perhaps the most reprehensible tactic of all is the persistent attempt to cultivate baseless fears in the hearts of members of vulnerable minority groups, by cynically and dishonestly misrepresenting BNP policies and intentions...

So it is, that week after week, the Jewish Chronicle sows the seeds of terror among its readers and fulminates against the BNP, as though the growth of our party is some sort of threat to the Jewish community.'
Getting to the point after its obligatory swipe at the well-respected Jewish Chronicle, the article referred back to the Disability Now post;
'In a similar vein, the editor of Disability Now has blogged about the notoriously slanted recent edition of BBC “Question Time” featuring Nick Griffin. Referring to the disgusting actions of the evil German Nazi regime towards disabled people, the editor of Disability Now bizarrely claimed that “Clearly there will be members of Griffin’s party who would laud such action against our community. Fear the day when a BNP government might take the chance to institute a similar programme.”

Hopefully, the readers of Disability Now are sensible enough to see through such arrant nonsense and not lose any sleep over it...For the truth is, the advent of a BNP government would certainly herald a new golden age for disabled people.'
Arrant nonsense? Don't lose any sleep over it? Well, I'll try not to, but I can't help remembering the words of Jeff Marshall, the BNP's Central London organiser. Following the death of Ivan Cameron, six-year-old son of Conservative Party leader David Cameron and his wife Samantha, last year, he said;
'We live in a country today which is unhealthily dominated by an excess of sentimentality towards the weak and unproductive. No good will come of it.'
Not content with attacking those mourning the death of a severely disabled child who brought “joy and love to those around him”, Marshall continued in his sick tirade, stating that although it would be “a kindness” to kill children with disabilities, this was not the same as advocating such a measure as compulsory state policy. “But so what if it is,” he asked. “At least we would all know where we stand. There is actually not a great deal of point in keeping these sort of people alive, after all.”

Marshall’s disturbing and repellent views recall those of BNP terrorist Tony Lecomber, who was, until 2008 (when he got the urge to organise the assassinations of a few public figures), one of Griffin’s right-hand men and was until 2007 the BNP's Group Development Officer. Lecomber proposed a racist eugenics programme, echoing that of the Nazi murderer Dr Josef Mengele, which advocated a 'racially purer' Britain through the sterilisation of the poor, the sick and the disabled.

Marshall is still a member of the BNP.

A pro-BNP blogger who runs the Britain Awake blog site uses the tagline 'Left-wing and liberal spastics should click back NOW!', which probably gives you some idea of what to expect. This is what he wrote following the death of Ivan Cameron.
'Good riddance to bad rubbish! Enemies of the Britain Awake blog like to term us as vile neo-Nazi's with a pathological hatred of the disabled. Which couldn't be further from the truth, but we're not prepared to argue the toss right now!

Which brings us on to our next subject, the waste of flesh & blood that was 'ivan cameron', this piece of shit should have been drowned at birth! Sorry if people find this offensive, but we find evil bastard David Cameron's cruel manipulation of a spastic child for political gain offensive!

You can't even describe 'ivan cameron' as a person, it was merely a pawn in David Camerons quest for power. So we have no qualms whatsoever in saying: GOOD RIDDANCE TO BAD RUBBISH!!! Call us cruel and heartless if you like, but when this cunt becomes PM and makes our lives even more miserable you'll all be laughing at his defective sperm! Let's hope Cameron has had the snip, we don't want him firing out any more rubbish like 'ivan'

PS. What kind of name is 'ivan' anyway?!'
A couple of years ago, we had a News in brief article that referred to the nazi Stormfront forum. Back then, Stormfront Britain was firmly pro-BNP and many BNP members (and Lee Barnes, who wasn't then a member of the party despite being its official legal advisor) and officers posted on there. During our stroll through Stormfront's post, we came across an attack on the model Jordan (Katie Price), or rather her son Harvey. Harvey, who was then four years old, suffers blindness and autism (caused by septo-optic dysplasia) but is a target for the far-right not simply because he's disabled but because he's the product of a mixed-race relationship. The comments were beyond brutal, to say nothing of being racist;
  • 'I know it's a terrible thing to say about a disabled child,but that half breed child is repulsive...'
  • 'Her niglet is utterly abhorrent, really disgusting to look at...'
  • 'Bad genes, and yes the child is horrid...'
  • 'Yes,the kid is repulsive.I feel a tad guilty saying that about a disabled kid,but it's partly the fact it's half black...'
  • 'Aside from being a fat, fuck ugly niglet, I was under the impression that the only other disability it had was being blind, although I have never really paid much attention to these two overexposed idiots...'
  • 'These whores like Jordan should have more consideration for what they are bringing into the world...'
  • 'Price has allowed herself to be impregnated by a nig, but hypocrites like Jolie, Madonna etc have gone round the world adopting niglet kids, yet would never let a nig near them in real life...'
  • 'The child is a mong. Half bred mong, nice. Also I find mongs just that.No mongs in my famliy.'
Stormfront is owned and administered by ex-KKK klansman Don Black, a close and long-time friend of Nick Griffin and his family. One assumes then, that the comments of Jeff Marshall, Tony Lecomber, the author of the Britain Awake blog and the vermin who inhabit Stormfront are roughly in line with the BNP mindset. A new golden age for disabled people, huh?

The BNP closes its ludicrous article with this;
'The British National Party already has many disabled members and expects to recruit countless more in the years to come...'
I wouldn't bank on it. Not with the likes of Jeff Marshall in it.

"A pro-BNP blogger who runs the Britain Awake blog site"

Any idea as to the name of this person?

And as for disabled anti-fascists....

They wouldn't last long under the BNP.

I wonder what Clive Jefferson thinks of Jeff Marshall's comments. Isn't he (supposedly) disabled - even though he's one of Nick Griffin's security team.

Undeniable proof that the BNP ARE a bunch of cunts.

If the BNP ever got into power we'd return to the Dark Ages in a matter of days. They haven't got a policy that they've given more than ten minutes thought to (probably over a few pints too many).

Excellent article, although with some of those remarks that you quoted I actually found it difficult to read without being moved to indescribable anger.

Whilst we're on the subject, can anybody see the point in keeping Jeff Marshall alive? As far as I'm concerned the spiteful, brainless cunt is just breathing my air.

14 seconds in. Dickhead Jefferson forgets hes disabled and dances round like a fairy. We should send this video to the enefits department.

Good article, thanks

If anybody thinking of voting BNP is confused about what a BNP government would do once it had full charge of the country, take a look at the graves of the concentration camp victims which include Jews,disabled people, Roma, gay people, Slavic people, and lots, lots more that are not part of the masterrace as defined by neo-Nazi websites such as Stormfront and VNN, where leading BNP members hang out.

Bad news if you dribble when you nibble or you wobble while you hobble (thanks Ian Dury).

Isn't Dick I Beg Your Pardon Nick Griffin disabled?

I just watched that video and much to my surprise Clive Jefferson comes over as even more stupid than he looks. Who'd'a thunk it?

Something of a major contradiction there.

Just read on Twitter that Dickie Barnbrook's been given the boot and Gri££in is standing in Barking next year.

I can well believe that Dicky's been given the push but why would Griffin stand? He's already got himself a nice little earner at the EU.

I'd argue quite a few of the bnp 'johnnies' are disabled. Griffin is clearly obese - give it another year or so and the fat bastard will have to be taken to his next roasting on QT in a reinforced ambulance, Barnes is certifiable, the green arrow is a alcoholic. I don't know what wrong with Kemp but his head looks like a peanut. Large numbers of them have chromosomal deficiencies & substance abuse issues.

This person who wrote this is either suffering from a severe personality disorder or is an agent provocateur.

Barnbrook getting the push just seems to be rumour at this stage.

If Gri££in is standing in Barking then it's not rocket science whats happening to Barnbrook.

The British National Party already has many disabled members

Is it possible they're referring to pathologies and personality disorders? If so, this statement is fairly accurate.

Buck the Chuck said...

Is it not ironic that Gri££in calls a press conference and announces that London is no longer British and then a fortnight later declares he is standing as a candidate in a London Parliamentary seat?
