Anti-Fascism – the new hate culture?

I’ve been to a handful of protests before in my life and at each of which I’ve never once felt the need or urge to engage in violent demonstration.

Protests are a way to show your disapproval at things like a ruling by a Magistrate or even at the actions of a government. But a protest should always be peaceful and law-abiding.

Civil disobedience is stronger way to show disapproval, but even that refrains from violent actions and other crimes such as criminal damage and looting.

I certainly don’t approve of protests which are of a violent nature. So, you might be able to see my dismay when protests get out of hand and turn violent; which is a very self-defeating purpose.

Protests happen all the time, all over the world… The UK, the USA… heck, it’s practically a national sport in France.

But it appears there’re no bunch of people who like a good protest other than, “Social Justice Warriors”. Students, who’ve been brainwashed in their colleges, universities and various clubs and organisations. People who gravitate towards the studies of dead-end subjects like Social Sciences for example.

These SJW’s join various unions and pressure groups such as Hope Not Hate, the Anti-Fascist league and many other far-left groups (most of which have been or are currently funded by globalist, left-wing billionaire, George Soros).

The problem is though, these groups stink of the sulphuric scent of hypocrisy and irony. Their protests are rarely peaceful, they use violence, aggression and almost always cause criminal damage.

These groups, mostly made up of students and those who lean towards communist tendencies, will always say that they protest to stand up for equality, peace, freedom of speech and social justice.

Coincidentally, they always claim to stand up against tyranny, oppression, hate, dictation, violence and discrimination.

“To protest it violently and attack innocent people because of how they voted or because of who they lend support to as president is also a direct violation of their goal for standing up against fascism.”

What’s wrong though is…. No they don’t.

In the United States (and around the world, actually) people are out protesting against the election of Trump as president.

Now, I get that they don’t support the man due to his political standing and from some of the stuff he’s said and done in the past. And they’re well within their right to protest if the vote was inaccurate or rigged or if Trump has done something seriously wrong.

Personally though, I’m not sure what to make of America’s new president. And very recently, he authorised military action against a Syrian government airfield, which I think was a wrong and a disturbing, ill-thought out move. That alone would be a legitimate reason to protest.

But to protest someone because they were elected as president, and calling for a recount or another vote directly violates one of the things these protesters supposedly stand against – fascism.

To protest it violently and attack innocent people because of how they voted or because of who they lend support to as president is also a direct violation of their goal for standing up against fascism. It also directly violates their goal of standing up against Tyranny and promoting freedom of speech.

Many rallies or conferences of support for Donald Trump are often hijacked by these protesters and disrupted by screaming or causing an obstruction – a bit like his inauguration day, when tens of thousands of people couldn’t get to the event due to streets having been shut down by the “anti-fascist” protesters.

But what concerns me most of all is that the protesters are always willing to use violence and carry out criminal activity in order to accomplish their nefarious ambitions.

Below is a video highlight just one example of this.

From what I gather, this man was identified as a Trump supporter. Consequentially, this attracted the attention of protesters out that day who surrounded his vehicle and started hitting and thumping on the windows.

Like buzzards circling round their prey, the gathered round the vehicle to cause as much inconvenience to the man in question.

Then things stooped a bit lower. Someone felt the need to slash his tyres (criminal damage), simply for having a different opinion to the amassed crowd of protesters.

When the man realised this and confronted them, they simply laughed at him. That one person is the embodiment of all the things the protesters vow to combat. No amount of showering of bathing can rid them of the overpowering stench of hypocrisy.

EU’s Barmy Army Demonstration

So, I took a trip into London today (25th March 2017) to see what the fuss was about at the Pro-EU protest.

A very sunny day, hundreds of people everywhere, most carrying signs, placards or EU and nation-state flags.

I followed the protest around for a bit and I encountered some rather… well… fanatical people. Quite extreme in their views, actually.

I spoke to circa 24/25 people and had asked random questions.

I had also noticed that quite a lot of people out protesting today, were students and people of foreign origin… Polish, French, Spanish… you know, all EU member countries. Even a female American student out protesting too!

I thought this ironic and very biased to have EU nationals here, in the UK, protesting that the UK should remain in the EU. What gives them the right or authority to protest or dictate about the direction of this country?

I asked a French student why she was in London today. She said to protest the triggering of Article 50 and to show that she wants the UK to remain in the EU.

Further more, I’d asked her why she’s in the UK and she told me that she’s a student studying here. To no surprise, she was studying social sciences and I think psychology (I can’t remember).

I then asked her if she was looking to stay in the UK upon completion of her studies. She blankly and abruptly said no. So, naturally I’d asked why and she responded that her home is in France and she’d return, like she does some weekends and holidays.

I then asked her what right she thinks she has to dictate the UK’s EU policy and protest and campaign for it to stay in the EU. She paused for a few seconds, broke a small smile and inhaled before responding, “Because I’m protesting racism and nationalism”.

I had pretty much laughed in her face and then asked what was racist about a democratic vote to leave the EU? Her response? “Nationalism and patriotism are racism. The English voted to leave because they don’t want immigrants.”

When I asked her what would she like to see happen to all the British expats who live in the EU or France after we leave, she aggressively stated “We send them back to the England.”

Naturally I questioned that with, “But surely they’re immigrants if they’re living across the channel? And surely, you out protesting today is ironically a form of patriotism itself? Your allegiance is to the EU. You have the flag painted on your cheek and you’re wrapped up in the EU flag. What you’re asking, or rather, demanding, is that democracy is ignored in favour of your opinion and allegiance.”

She smirked and replied, “They’re immigrants that can’t stay because you voted leave. And I am not a patriot of place. I am a proud European. You’re just a racist and misogynistic pig. F**k you” accompanied by her middle finger.

As she got aggressive and resorted to name calling, I moved away and continued against the crowd for a bit. A man who I thought was English caught my attention and I went to him to ask him why he was out protesting today. Turns out he was German. He pretty much gave the same reason so I walked back.

Out of the 25 or so people I spoke to, I think 6 were English and dressed stereotypically like a Social Justice Warrior. Their reasons for protest was to demand Prime Minister May to call a 2nd referendum and deliver “democracy” and listen to the “will of the people”, who by the way, voted to leave the EU last year.

Another thing I noticed today were the lack of UK flags being carried by the hundreds of protestors. I didn’t see any more than 3 or 4 to be honest. There is such a hatred of a sovereign UK nation that they don’t seem to want to acknowledge that the UK is the nation either home to them or hosting them.

I saw a Polish flag, hundreds of EU flags, I saw a French flag, Spanish flags, German flags but few Union flags

One of the men I approached was holding a pro EU sign that said simply, “We love EU”. We were heading towards Westminster where a stage appeared to be set up. It was then I realised the scale of the planning and funding that must have been put into this.

I’d asked the man where he got the sign from and he disappointingly told me he made it himself. So I asked him where I could get one from. Some people already had their signs but apparently there were people handing out signs.

He directed me to a guy in a bright orange fluorescent coat, who was a marshal for the demonstration.

I asked the marshal where I could get a sign from and he said that he could get me one, if I’d like to follow him.

I had asked where the funding for the signs come from and this set up of a stage, as I didn’t pay into it or anything. His answer was shocking… he told me that it was a mix of companies, private donors and EU funding.

EU funding?! Really?

I told him that I’d go find a sign and thanks for his help.

It was then I knew exactly what I needed to know. So I went back to Euston station and got a train back to Wimbledon to where I parked my car and set off home.

Thoughts and more questions had materialised in my mind as I drove back. Why are the EU funding this? Who the hell are the private donors? And what companies are paying? How are people blinded by hypocrisy so easily? And who organised this? Students? Business owners or politicians? A mix of them all?

Questions for another time. I’m tired now and need a cup of tea. Today, to say the least, was a thought-provoking and concerning experience.
