Cassette Boy vs Nick Griffin vs Question Time

question time

Politics got more ugly than usual this week as Nick Griffin chairman of the British National Party (by the way that is not a link to their website) took part in BBC’s Question Time. His time on air was spent stuttering responses, smirking when talking of the holocoust, using erroneous historical statements and generally not coming across very well when faced with the publics scrutiny on his party and their policies. If you haven’t already watched it i can’t recommend it enough, dont believe the hype find out for yourself. The show recieved over 8million viewers, 6 million more than usual and according to the BNP website cited 3,00 new memberships to the party (that is when their freeze on new membership is lifted ehem). The propaganda on their website post Question Time (and in general) is ridiculous but also makes me wonder if they have got the marketing crew of Absolute Power minus the genius and elocution of Stephen Fry on the BNP payroll…seriously is their an advertising agency who would take on this party? Any way i’ve gone off topic kind of, i mean whats there to say really racism is wrong and Nick Griffin’s attempt at politically correct racism on national tv is even more so, Cassette Boy let him have it!

You have to laugh else your a racist….

  1. Paul says:

    Racism begins with our families, parents, brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles, grandparents, people we admire, respect and love.

    However, as we grow and mature we come to the realization that what we were told by our family when we were children were slanted lies base on their prejudices. We realize that most people are like ourselves and not so different and want the same things, like a home, steady work, a Medicare plan and schools for our children (if you travel you will see this). We realize that most people are of good hearts and goodwill.

    This reminds me of a parable from the good book where a Levite and Priest come upon a man who fell among thieves and they both individually passed by and didn’t stop to help him.

    Finally a man of another race came by, he got down from his beast, decided not to be compassionate by proxy and got down with the injured man, administered first aid, and helped the man in need.

    Jesus ended up saying, this was the good man, this was the great man, because he had the capacity to project the “I” into the “thou,” and to be concerned about his fellow man.

    You see, the Levite and the Priest were afraid, they asked themselves, “If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?”

    But then the Good Samaritan came by. And he reversed the question: “If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?”

    That’s the question before us. The question is not, “If I stop to help the immigrant in need, what will happen to me?” The question is, “If I do not stop to help the immigrant, what will happen to him or her?” That’s the question.

    This current climate of blaming others for our woes is not new. We have had this before and we have conquered it.

    Remember “Evil flourishes when good men (and women) do nothing”. Raise your voices with those of us who believe we are equal and we can win this battle again.
