SDL: Neither Racist Nor BNP But Both!

Crivvens! Jings! And Help Ma Boab! Mr Dave is up visiting his Caledonian cousins today hoping to make Scotland ‘stronger, safer, richer and fairer!’ Aye Mr Dave, cos you lot have got such a smashing track record for that up here haven’t you? Meanwhile, the small ragtag army of racketeers and bandits that constitute the Scottish Defence League are organising some ‘top secret’ flash demos in Glasgow via Facebook over the next couple of months because no one is paying attention to them. And for good reason cos they’re track record is shite as well! The SDL’s nebs were put out of joint this week after their ‘mass rally’ in Glasgow on the 25th was banned so they are now going to have a static protest where no doubt plod will outnumber them as usual. The SDL have had a poor history of protest with ‘successes’ like their tiny demo in Kilmarnock which no one noticed and the occasional turn out in Glasgow and Edinburgh where they have been massively outnumbered by anti-fascists. After 1 of their Edinburgh demo’s the entire leadership were nicked as well. Whit a hames! Best so far was when the ‘massed ranks’ of the SDL met up with the Northeast Infidels and National Front in Newcastle which ended up with them battering each other senseless. Well done.

NF Mass In Newcastle!

The SDL have fallen out with the Infidels and the SDL’s Steven Jacobs told John ‘Snowy’ Shaw to do one. There was an SDL member at the Infidels Rochdale washout and another got into plod bother at their ridiculous Islamic Argentinean Embassy no-show where 1 eejit was arrested trying to burn a flag. The SDL claim they are neither racist nor BNP but they are both and use their opposition to ‘Islamist Extremism’ as a way of venting their racism. Given that in Scotland there aren’t even 50,000 practicing Muslims out of 5 million then the amount of ‘extremists’ is likely to be very negligible indeed, i.e., a tiny percent of 1%. The SDL are also annoyed about ‘the foreigns coming over here and taking our jobs’ (whit fucken jobs?) conveniently forgetting the tens of 1,000s of Scots who have emigrated all over the world to work. As well as being ideologically confused the SDL also have major technical difficulties in that they are completely incapable of running a website and both of theirs have fallen into disuse over the last couple of years. At the moment they can barely manage a Facebook page which is hardly the mark of a competent organisation.

The Brain Behind The SDL

Of course, the main issue with the far right this last week has been the proposed Hyde demo also on the 25th of February. In case you don’t know a couple of wee laddies were beaten up and the EDL, BNP and Infidels factions have all been trying to hijack the case to get their much needed publicity fixes and to recruit numbers for their ailing organisations. The EDL have been the most active and stated they have been meeting with plod – what happened to ‘no more police liaison’ and ‘we march where we want, when we want’? The family have asked people to stay away but the EDL are determined not to waste this publicity stunt and have completely disregarded the feelings of the people they are ‘supporting.’ The far-right often attempt to capitalise on the grief of families in difficult times and the BNP, like the EDL, is no exception. Nick Griffin has been palling it up with the mother of missing teenager Charlene Downes. The Casuals United faction, led by convicted football hooligan Jeff ‘Stabber’ Marsh and ably supported by the comical ‘Marshy’s Angles,’ feel quite proprietorial about this case and have over-congratulated themselves on publicising it. Griffclops has flown in and tried to capitalise on the misery of the family thus pushing Stabber’s boys into the shade. This has pleased Jeffrey not a bit and he will no doubt take it up in person with the Griffclops when, or rather if, either of them ever get to Hyde. We shall see!

    What a piss-poor effort from the SDL today, I was in Glasgow about Noon and didn’t see any evidence of them. Apparently they were holed up in the subway station – where the hell is Shoko Asuhara when you need him? Saw plenty of other fascists though, they were hard to miss in their bright yellow jackets.
