Racism or Protectionism........The BNP saga

The BNP has been on the spot for a very long time, and it doesn’t look like it will ever stop for as long as the party is still getting votes in Britain.

During the last election, the BNP not only get two seats at the European elections, but they also have seat at the London Assembly and also in some part of the country.

The success of the BNP is increasing and the popularity of the party is becoming so difficult for the anti-fascist to curb. The party has always been controversial in his policy and ideology. They have no platform for Gay people and also a no membership offer for Black and Minority ethnics.

They have even gone as far as criticising the inclusion of players like Ashley Cole in the England’s team.

The argument of the BNP has been that they wanted to protect what is British, and based on this, they have been able to get sympathetic votes from those Brits that think that their culture and existence is at stake.

The opponents of the BNP say they are racist and bigots. They have also referred to the BNP as a Nazis party and should not be allowed a place in today dynamic Britain.

My argument has been, is the BNP really racist? Is Racism an act of protectionism?

Earlier this year, South Africans attacked Zimbabweans in what was referred to across the world as a racist attack. But the poor South Africans said, that the Zimbabweans are denying them the opportunity to get a job. (South African job for South African people you will say)

In the early 80’s, I can vividly remember the “Ghana must go” incident in Nigeria, where Ghanaians were ordered to leave Nigeria, because the Nigerian government want Nigerian jobs for Nigerian people. (can you read in between the lines?)

Now the BNP is doing just the same, and they have argue that all they are doing is protect the future of their children.

The question is; does protectionism excuse the act of Racism? The answer is not far from here, it is NO! Everywhere in the world this act of HATRED is practiced, the people the so called champion are protecting always revolt to tell them to shut up. And I can see the same thing happening to the BNP soon. The white middle class that Nick Griffin and his cohort are trying to protect are marrying into interracial marriages and I feel this is a sign of revolt.

It is a big shame that the government has failed to tackle the up raise of these political hooligans and now the British League is climbing on the success of the BNP to start their own madness.

To answer the earlier question, yes BNP is a racist group that should be outlawed, but is protectionism an act or rascim? let me know what you think

Maybe these people should be reminded that, the so called immigrants they so much want to get rid of also have a stake in this country.

Well that is an argument for another day.
