The last time the EDL visited Manchester, was in the heyday of the EDL's Spring, under a Labour government, the Sun and the Daily Mail incubating Islamophobia and anti-Muslim hatred to turn the tide of public opinion firmly against Gordon Brown. Muslims Against Crusades were paraded on every newsstand across the British Isles as the pantomime baddies who needed to be opposed by "the silent majority" being rallied out on the streets of Luton and elsewhere.
Although Islamophobia is still making headlines now, a Tory administration safely in place, UKIP snapping on the heels of David Cameron, the mass focus of trashy rightwing gutter journalism is now Eastern European immigrants from Romania and Bulgaria, especially Romanian Roma people, rather than Muslims.
The NWI, who openly declare support for National Socialism, and the actions of Adolf Hitler, who murdered a large number of Roma people across Europe, would be more than happy to march against Eastern Europeans, calling for them to be sent to concentration camps, and Jews too (judging from Shane "Diddyman" Calvert's recent tweets, however the mythical psyche of the EDL and its splinter groups is stuck like a broken down lift back in 2009, unable to adapt its nazi message beyond what millionaire former funder Alan Ayling (Alan Lake) called "The Muslim Problem".
A one-track pony without Tesco's or a dodgy abattoir to put it finally out of its misery, the EDL now solely relies upon the donations of American neo-conservative cranks Geller and Spencer to keep it afloat, which means an indefinite spamming of anti-Islamic propaganda 24/7 from the Official EDL Twitter Feed, along with similar offerings from (Twitter goon) UBlocks, facebook, and on their very website, ignoring the home-grown racist siren calls such as general immigration, which have absolutely nothing to do with Israel, and therefore are not permitted to be on the EDL's "pro-Israeli agenda".
It was the EDL's obsession that rendered its political wing the (falsely-named) "British Freedom Party" a lame duck as the inheritor of the BNP. Muslim paedo this....., Muslim terror that...... , there was no room given to anybody to rant and rave about African immigrants, the IRA, asylum seekers, gay and lesbian people, or any other traditional British neo-Nazi rallying cause.
Like a football team relying only on attackers or strikers with nobody up in midfield, the EDL's manic fixation with Islam and Muslims has left them to stagnate, each EDL march since 2011 on a downward spiral to terminal oblivion. Once a force of street thugs to be reckoned with, the EDL are now a joke, zapped repeatedly by Muslamic rayguns into a quivering mess that is cannon fodder for SLATEDL and stand-up comedians alike. Their supporters mercilessly lampooned as thick since the Ray Gun incident. followed by the Oldham microphone fiasco, there was no way back, only Tommy Robinson, Uncle Kev Carroll and Helen Gower's buffoonery at the reigns, has rapidly hastened their ultimate demise.
They should have quit whilst they were ahead, and called it a day immediately after they were captured by the Press TV camera, but being not too bright from the top downwards, they had to go on and finish the job of totally and utterly dismantling the EDL from within. Casuals United and the NWI belatedly moved out of the EDL's comfort zone, since their much-publicised falling out with the EDL's hierarchy, eventually going on to link up with the BNP, then the NF, and openly call for the extermination of all non-whites in the United Kingdom, but if the NWI were hoping to become the new Combat18, it was a case of too little, too late. The Llama harmer emigrating to Mounty Country, Liam Pinkham making prison a hobby, and poor old Diddyman well and truly diddled, they are ultimately heading for the same fate as the EDL - extinction.
Casuals United, another EDL offshoot who didn't see the point of not being anti-Semitic, have recently made moves as publicised on Twitter to do their own thing. Whilst Shane Calvert (i.e The Diddyman) was tickled pink with the idea of sending Jews as well as Muslims to the gas chamber, Jeff "Stabber" Marsh and chums were busy promoting a White Power Rockfest happening in Wales.
Just as it seemed for an instant the old philosophies of British fascism were gradually creeping back into the hearts and minds of the nation's neo-Nazis, a dilapidated and worn Kevin Carroll plays a trump card to bring the EDL's dissidents to their knees - UNITING THE RIGHT!
Hope Not Hate were quick to point out that the EDL's Manchester march would be awash with disparate hardcore neo-Nazi groups all jockeying for position, but how much were they underestimating the ego of Emperor Julius Carroll......
Whilst "Uniting The Right" sounds like the rallying call for all of the old Blood and Honour boneheads to get out of retirement to hobble around in their Doc Martens, in reality, it appears to be nothing more than an intricate plan for Kev Carroll to wrestle control away from his enemies, those former EDLers who regularly criticise Kev and Hel Gower on Facebook and Twitter.
In agreeing to attend Manchester to bolster the EDL's miserable expected turnout, groups such as CxF and the Infidels are sacrificing independence and peace of mind it all for the halycon dreams of a Manchester that never was. Diddyman and co., plus many other former EDLers appear to have fallen hook, line for Kevin's clever "Unite The Right", giving what they (and Nick Griffin) described as the dead donkey of "plastic nationalism", one last flog.
Willfully hurtling headfirst into oblivion, the dissidents will not be turning up at an Official EDL Event (in all but name) as equals with the EDL. It doesn't work like that. They will be in for a nasty shock if they think they will be able to speak their minds without "politically-correct censorship" once they are safely back within the ranks of the EDL.
What is it they say about keeping enemies nearer than friends????? LOL
First and foremost, NWIers, and anybody else returning to the fold will have to apologise unreservedly to the EDL leadership for ever doubting Tommy or Kev's slipshod leadership. Secondly, they will be barred from expressing anti-Israeli sentiment on Facebook and Twitter. During the march, they will be expected to accept and support the Israeli flag bearer, who will be turning up in Manchester to show support for Israel, under instructions from Pam Geller.
All open and overt expressions of support of Ulster will be prohibited by Emporer Kev purely because he is jealous of Jim Dowson's all-new Unionist street army and doesn't want to give people ideas which would lead to them joining his bitter sworn rivals. All Celtic cross flags and swastikas will likewise be confiscated by EDL stewards, who have promised to give a hefty clip around the ear hole to anybody as much as giggling whilst Emperor Julius Carroll speaks.
Forget the phoney "Northwest Alliance". This is a strictly EDL event where sinners may (in Roman Catholic confessional style) do their penance for falling out with Tommy, Hel and Kev, the absolution of their dissidence being a pledge taken by former members of the organisation to once again fork out top dollar for EDL hoodies and other mass-produced tat.
For supposedly unashamable "patriots", the EDL are paranoid to the point of insanity. So scared of being labelled as racists, worried of anything that could would undermine their declared support for the State of Israel, under the instructions of USA funders Spencer and Geller, Tommy and Kev have decided to turn their annual Luton march into a (supposed) "anti-racist" music festival. Everybody returning to the EDL will be forced to accept such moves with a smile, North Korea-style.
The NWI nor anybody else turning up in Manchester, will be digging their own graves, much to the pleasure of committed anti-fascists everywhere. Groups like the NWI will be rejoining the EDL under the EDL's terms, the likes of Diddyman forced to rebecome "a plastic nationalist".
The overall turnout in Manchester will still be pitifully low compared to last time. While the march will be declared a flop by all but the most ardent, blinkered EDLers, in the power struggle constantly bubbling within the ranks of the British Far Right, Emperor Julius Carroll will be victorious, his misguided brain-dead rivals softly surrendering willy-nilly for a piece of the action.
The EDL is already sinking into the ocean of anonymity, but Manchester is a win-win situation for Mr Carroll's troubled ego. His sworn nationalist enemies forced by hefty EDL stewards at boot-point to clap, whoop, holler and cheer every single word that emanates from Kevin and Hel's mouths, victory will be sweet, and will keep them in-charge whilst Stephen Yaxley Lennon faces a further jail term for passport fraud.
Excellent news for antifascists: - Nick "Griffo" Griffin's prophesies about a pro-Israeli EDL putting traditional hardcore fascism to bed will have reassuringly come true, once and for all, after all the refuseniks surrender, whilst the EDL will continue vanish bit-by-bit into the fascist swamp. The footsoldiers of hate, with nowhere viable to turn to, will soon vanish from sight, some returning to football hooliganism, whilst others hang up their Stone Island Swastikas and bovva-trainers for good....... !!!
BRING ON THE FASCIST SURRENDER!!! LOL
It's Bloody Hilarious
