EDL Bottles Out Of Bolton Nazi Brawl

08-02-2010 02:21

The excellent news for everybody who finds racism repulsive is that the neo-Nazi (in denial) cretins of the EDL have decided not to seik heil around Bolton after a customary visit to Wetherspoons. The street-fighters of the EDL had deliberately planned their riotous punch-up to coincide with a multi-faith gathering, hoping the gutter antics of their football hooligan masterrace would drive a wedge between Muslims and people of other religions setting community against community resulting in an increase in racial tension.

The two, Ariadna Jove Marti, a Spanish journalist, and Bridgette Chappell, an Australian student in the Beir Zeit university, were then taken to the Ofer military prison located inside the Occupied Territories, where they were handed over to the Israeli immigration police unit “Oz”.

Uncovering The Rapid Rise & Growth Of Far-Right Radicalism In Russia

07-02-2010 14:22

A few days ago we posted an article regarding the rapid rise and growth of some of Russia's very own Neo-Nazi paramilitary groups. These groups have been responsible for hundreds of racially motivated attacks against immigrants and refugees, plus many more murders. They typically record these attacks/murders so that they can eventually be shown to brainwash and control young recruits.
