HOPE not HATE should be THANKING UKIP for running the BNP out of BRITISH POLITICS, BUT ALAS, NO.

HOPE not hate is a good solid website that tracks far right and fascist parties in the UK.  I admire them for their work.  But they have unfairly elected to place UKIP in with the far right and fascist parties they monitor and condemn.  Actually HOPE not hate should thank UKIP for basically running out of British politics the British National Party, which is a genuine racist party.

But alas, no:

2014 elections: UKIP, far right and nationalist candidates

HOPE not hate has produced a list of all the UKIP and far right candidates standing in these elections.

Along with record numbers of UKIP candidates, these elections signal the continued collapse of the BNP, which is standing just 106 Council and Mayoral candidates compared to the 734 it contested four years ago, the last time these seats were up for election.

We will be reporting on the elections as they progress on the HOPE not hate blog.

If you have any leaflets, names of candidates. letters from candidates in local newspapers etc, please send them to [email protected]. Help us keep an eye on the fascists in your area.


HOPE not hate has a anti-UKIP blog and they said this about the newly elected or selected UKIP rep for the Newark by-election, former Tory now UKIP EU parliamentarian (called MEP in the UK) Roger Helmer:

Helmer caused a storm when he claimed that 15 year old girls can consent to sex with pop stars. Helmer said “Suppose a 15-year-old girl is at a club with a pop star, and he says ‘how about it, dear’? and she says ‘yes please, I was hoping you’d ask’. In most people’s book, that constitutes consent. Legally, she cannot consent, but in real terms, she can.”

Helmer also claimed that if an underage child asked for sex then they were contributing to the problem.

That is specious analysis.  What is HOPE not hate saying?  That Helmer encourages underage girls to seek sex with rock stars?  Sounds like exactly the opposite to me.  This kind of analysis almost reminds me of another organization that started out well and is now just as mean and hateful as some of the groups they criticize:

The Southern Poverty Law Center.

    Heres the latest UKIP candidates photo taken along with Nigel which the so called Hope Not Hate left wing communist collective will have sleepless nights to explain away

    Actually they are trying one of the candidates from the above picture states he was labelled an UNCLE TOM for becoming a UKIP candidate and in another case a leftist female only calling her self Sue equated the entire 50 people in the photo as being like the tame Jews who helped the nazis herd their fellow religionists into the gas ovens!

      Henry, thanks for coming again and again and I hope my articles encourage the UKIP members and supporters to keep working until victory!

      Yes, a black conservative or libertarian (The LP just nominated a black libertarian for VA’s Third District and boy is he going to get it! but I think he’ll do okay.) is liable to be called a “Uncle Tom”. Actually the original Uncle Tom was a heroic character in Uncle Tom’s Cabin.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
