Why Not Believe Them?

Source: timesonline

British Ballerina Simone Clark joined the BNP out of concern over out of control mass immigration into Britain. The BNP stands for the British National Party, and though they've had their documented problems with actual racism, the simple fact is any hint of patriotism is considered 'racism' and 'fascism' by the hard left.

So a group formed calling themselves "Unite Against Fascism" to protest Miss Simone. They gathered outside the Coliseum in London to demand Miss Simone's sacking.

This is something I, and others have noticed before. I believe the name of the principle is "give them enough rope"...
This is a strange story in every way. Despite her fear of mass immigration, Clarke has an immigrant boyfriend of Chinese-Cuban descent, also a dancer; there is a hint of inconsistency here surely, and the BNP certainly finds it a touch embarrassing. And then the protesters in the street, who say that ethnic English people’s fear of immigration is nothing but irrational racism, rather undermined their own case by shouting “We are Muslim, black and Jew, there are many more of us than you” — by this threat confirming that a fear of mass immigration is not merely irrational racism. Brilliant.
As Bridgette Johnson wrote a couple of months ago on the subject of ethnic and hard leftian logic after attending a SOS protest in California...
..And if immigration proponents have been trying to pass off reconquista claims - the belief that immigrants want to take back "Aztlan" - as paranoid, these protesters weren't helping. One sign proclaimed "Stolen continent" - yet displayed two continents, North and South America. "White racists this is our continent" read one sign. Another said, "We will never live in peace until we get the European squatters off our lands."

...A couple of times, unwelcome people came into the counter-protesting crowd to take photos or video, and were quickly surrounded by an angry crowd and pelted with water bottles and debris. Shouts of "you little white b-" were directed at a blond woman; a man yelled "Get out of here, this is our town" through a bullhorn to others.

...But when you have virulent protests that include a pre-teen boy yelling "f- that white b-" at a passing fair-skinned woman - me - something is seriously wrong. Especially when it comes from the side holding a banner that proclaimed "Say NO to racism."
You hand them enough rope.
