But where will they send me?

As if it wasn’t bad enough that despite being a British citizen I’m apparently incapable of ever passing the British Citizenship test (numerous goes at the various online versions have ended in complete and humiliating failure), now it looks like the knuckledraggers who post on the white-nationalist-fascist-scum Stormfront forums want to have me deported.

During a recent discussion over there about the Norwich North by-election one of its more evolved members, that is, a Nazi who can not only use a keyboard to spout bile on the Internet but who can even add links and shit too, decided to post my piece about the lies the BNP had been printing in their election leaflets: The BNP’s lies in Norwich North. On top of that, said Nazi also decided to post a piccie of my good self to illustrate the article, one that he nabbed off my Facebook profile.

Now after a minor panic about how the hell he’d got hold of a photo I’ve only ever used on Facebook, and after taking some advice from friends about Internet security (cheers Sunny), I decided to remove my FB profile from public view.

I hadn’t actually realised that doing that would have a knock-on effect anywhere else, but I’m delighted and amused to report that this action has led to my photo on the Stormfront forum being replaced by a generic faceless avatar.

Why am I amused by this?

Because my threatened deportation appears to be based on my appearance alone. More specifically, the Nazi fascist scum want me booted off this sceptred isle because I look like I might be a lesbian.

I’m not linking (if you want to find the discussion yourself it’s headed Norwich north parliamentary by-election – Thursday 23rd July), but here’s a selection from the comments:

Nazi no. 1: “As for the BNP in Norwich – They seem to have upset the hairy armpit brigade“  (Followed by my photo and article with a link to LibCon.)

Nazi no. 2: “Is that a Lesbian? (no, it’s a generic faceless avatar you numpty)

Whatever it is, it looks like a real nasty piece of work. The sort that would get all “offended” and then start abusing you if you told her you were voting BNP. People like her will have to be deported too when nationalists gain power.…..I would bet a lot of money that this bitch doesn’t live anywhere near the invaders yet continues to brag about how wonderful they are.”

Nazi no. 3: “Isn’t it always the lonely white middle class woman or the lesbian or those liberal elite clergymen with nothing but time on their hands who shout loudest for the poor trampled on African who has had to travel thousands of miles across different countries to get their nice new house and benefits in madhouse UK ?

So, the questions are: 1) apart from Lesbos of course, where on Dawkin’s good earth are the Nazi fascist scum planning to deport me once they gain power? And 2) if the deportation selection criteria is going to be based on people looking like nasty pieces of work, how many skinhead fascists do they think will be left here after the grand cull? I mean seriously, the BNP and their acolytes are hardly what you’d call top totty themselves are they?

What I did find interesting was the attitude expressed on the forum of so-called English nationalists towards their fellow country men and women. Bearing in mind these are the people who allegedly want to preserve England for the English ‘cos the English are the greatest race and all the rest of that crap, this is what they actually think of the rest of the great British public:

Nazi no. 4: (talking about the BNP candidate the Rev Robert West) “Its time to drop the reverend. Having a fake vicar puts us down with the crank candidates and thats where our vote has ended up.

People aren`t stupid ( well actually they are on the whole) but they have seen through this fake Reverend gimmick.”

Nazi no. 5: The point is he is not a fake Reverend. And most of the people are incredibly stupid.

Nazi no. 5 again: “The general public are dumb and can be led to believe anything.”

Genius Nazi no. 6 who can even do anagrams: “Are these people really worth trying to save ? I’m beginning to wonder. The brave few left standing will save this place , not these bunch of tnucs , feck em .”

I make no comment on the irony of BNP and Stormfront thugs questioning other people’s intellectual capabilities…..

The rest of the debate then veers off into a discussion about the BNP’s failure to get anywhere in the Norwich North election. Interestingly, the consensus seems to be that the BNP is becoming too cuddly and multi-cultural, and that if only they’d go back to their roots and start looking and sounding like the National Front and Combat 18 which spawned them again, they might stand some chance of success:

Nazi no 7: “What these results should underscore to everybody is that bleating “I’m not a racist”, publicising that you have jewish members and support the bandit state of israel, telling the world you have members with non-White wives and mixed race kids, making unlikely claims that Sikhs and blacks form part of your vote – none of that will earn you one extra vote and will take you not one step nearer winning a parliamentary seat, Parliament being the only place, as the Lancaster site points out, worth winning election to.

I hope, but doubt, that the Norwich result and the terrible post June results will be the catalyst for returning the BNP to the course from which it strayed in 1999 and that it can become again the party that unites White Nationalists who aren’t afraid to be called “racist” and who aren’t going to blame everybody and everything in sight when the going gets tough.”

By everybody and everything in sight I take it he means other white nationalists, because if the debate on that forum is anything to go by, the only people BNP-voting white nationalist Englishmen don’t hate is other BNP-voting white nationalist Englishmen: it’s open season on everyone else.

But anyway, the white nationalists needn’t worry about finding somewhere to dump me. I’ve already started making plans for my escape from Blighty following this brilliant suggestion from a Men’s Right’s Activist (MRA) troll over on my site:

“If you despise men so much, why don’t you all pool resources, buy an island, name it “Menfuckoffland” and take your hate with you to die out when the last of you croaks.”

Anyone care to join me?

I’ll come (no pun).

Was just reading this on your blog, Cath, and it gave me a bit of a chill. Quite threatening. These people are beneath comment.

Post any other references they make to you.

“If you despise men so much, why don’t you all pool resources, buy an island, name it “Menfuckoffland” and take your hate with you to die out when the last of you croaks.”

I will never get over the bizarre spectacle of men – men! – who have enjoyed thousands of years of unjustified privilege and ease at the expense of the other 51% of the population being convinced that they are somehow persecuted and the victims of hate from women…when they pour out vindictive, nasty vitriol like this.

What a strange, strange world.

If it was a choice between “menfuckoffland” and “godIhatewomentheyfuckeverythingupwhyamIsocompletelyoppressedireallywanttohavesex” land I’d definitely apply for residency at the former, if you’d have me.

I’ll join you.

You people ain’t going anywhere otherwise I’ll be left on this island with a bunch of right-wingers!

And the BNP aren’t deporting me anywhere because when they come from me I’ll be ready… Commando style 🙂

“I hadn’t actually realised that doing that would have a knock-on effect anywhere else, but I’m delighted and amused to report that this action has led to my photo on the Stormfront forum being replaced by a generic faceless avatar.”

Hotlinking fun.

The British people aren`t stupid, but they have very little interest in politics – which means our democracy isn`t what it could be.

Sunny,

Did you just say that you’d go Commando? Methinks it doesn’t mean what you think it means O_O

But in all seriousness, the rage towards women just astounds me. Whether it’s this, the recent gym-shooting in the US (http://pandagon.net/index.php/site/comments/more_on_pick_up_artists_and_george_sodini/), or the vitriol towards Harriet Harman, the “You wimmin are oppressing me, so I must threaten harm on you” brigade is rather “Screwfly Solution” isn’t it?

Sunny

And the BNP aren’t deporting me anywhere because when they come from me I’ll be ready… Commando style

Lol, I suspect Dani’s right Sunny. You really didn’t mean this did you?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Going_commando

🙂

As to what kind of “commando style” Sunny was referring to, it’s worth pointing out that the style involving no underwear beind aluded to above is probably preferable to the style pioneered by Nick “Blindy” Griffin.

For it was he of the Welsh pastures who was playing at being a commando with his chums, preparing for the inevitable “race war”, that threw live ammunition into a bonfire one night…only for a shell to ricochet straight into one of his eyes.

Hence, blindy.

Far better to go around under-dressed than follow in Nick’s footsteps, methinks.

In my dealings with BNP daft racists they have an odd desire to publish images and as much personal info about the person as possible and they get very obsessive. To be expected from such mentally limited creatures.

Do save any stuff you get though, any harrassment and build up a file.
