It takes a nation to protect the nation



On the 4th of May, a car-driver targeted a group of EDL members who were standing outside a pub (the Rookery Tavern) in Wolverhampton.

The driver drove his Ford Focus right into a group of 15 EDL and severely injured a man named Jag Singh and less seriously injured another man. Mr Singh suffered from a broken leg and spinal injuries.

Jag Singh is a long-term member of the EDL and a leading member of its Sikh Division.

One witness described the event in the following way:

It’s a miracle that no-one was killed or more seriously hurt because the car was driving at some speed and its wheels were screeching.

I didn’t get a clear view but I could hear and see people being struck and tumbling over the car bonnet like skittles.”


A Detective Inspector Jim Munro, of West Midlands Police, said:


It is believed the vehicle, a red Ford Focus car V358 KOF, although this could have been changed, deliberately drove into the group outside the pub following a disorder.”

So far, detectives have arrested two people: a 47-year-old man and an 26-year-old man. They were arrested, only days later, on suspicion of conspiracy to cause grievous bodily harm.



                          ******************************************************


Various news outlets have quoted a “spokesman” for EDL Extra on this violent incident. EDL Extra is actually the Twitter account of Gary Fieness-Hasting's (a.k.a Gary Hastings, Gary Moon, etc.) website EDL News. So there's a very good chance that this spokesman is none other than “Gazza” (another pseudonym of Hasting's).    

So why did regional journalists ask someone who works for an extreme Leftist “monitoring site” what he thinks about another movement, the EDL; which they themselves classify as “extreme”? It doesn't make sense.


This need to ask the opinion of a self-styled expert on the "far right" and the EDL is even more bizarre considering the fact that this hit-and-run incident was not political anyway. According to certain people directly involved in the attack, it had nothing to do with politics. Yes, the people at the pub were EDL members; though it wasn't an EDL event. The Birmingham Mail, ITV News and other news outlets don't seem to realise this fact.


Again, why did the Birmingham Mail, etc. quote this Leftist? It seems that no matter how extreme a Leftist is, he is never deemed to be as extreme as people on the Right.


So how does that work, exactly?


Is it the case that even though most local journalists aren't exactly Hard Left, they are still, nonetheless, somewhat sympathetic to both Leftists and their various very fashionable causes? After all, even if members of Hope Not Hate, UAF, and other self-proclaimed “anti-fash” fascists use violence and promote violence, “their hearts" are still seen to "be in the right place” (as regional journalists sometimes put it).

[What Gary Hastings thinks every patriot looks like.]



Anyway, this EDL News spokesman offers us a very crude Marxist analysis of Jag Singh.


Firstly he says:

The EDL have somehow managed to hoodwink some Sikhs into joining them and created a so-called Sikh division.”

Now that single sentence alone incorporates two useful (to Marxists) and important Marxist theories: “false consciousness” and the notion of an ethnic minority “Uncle Tom”.

The idea that Jag Singh has been “hoodwinked” must be that he suffers from what Marxists call “false consciousness”. Middle-class Leftists must think that he's “working against his own best interests” by joining a counter-jihad group which is really - as everyone is told - “a white supremacist group”.

However, even though the EDL is not a white supremacist movement, it's still a patriotic one. Yet Jag Singh has brown skin and he's a Sikh. Now (the Leftist thinks) what's a brown-skinned person doing being a patriot and fighting against Islamisation? He should be a disgruntled member of an ethnic minority and consequently be begging to be patronised by white, middle-class Leftists like me. Yet, instead, Jag Singh has allowed himself to be “hoodwinked” by lots of nasty working-class whites. So rather than practice (Sikh) Uncle Tomism, Jag Singh should instead have allowed himself to have been hoodwinked by this spokesman for EDL Extra/News.

Gary Hastings, or whoever it is, then goes on to say:

Jag Singh is a popular figure in the EDL and the poster boy for their so-called non-racist outlook.”


Here this snooty and sneering man brings in the Marxist notion of an ethnic minority Uncle Tom again. What I mean by that is when white, middle-class Leftists aren't accusing people like Jag Singh, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Chloe Valdary, Irshad Manji, Maryam Namazie, Monica Ali, Ed Husain, Quilliam, Salman Rushdie, etc. of being black and Muslim Uncle Toms, they're accusing them of being “poster boys” or “poster girls” instead. And, my God, isn't “poster boy” a mind-numbing Guardianista cliché? These Leftist automatons use that phrase all the time in these and in similar  cases.

Anyway, the idea is that Jag Singh is simply a poster boy for all those nasty white working-class people who make up the EDL. That is, Jag Singh has False Consciousness (i.e., he's not a Leftist). Therefore Mr Singh has allowed himself to be hoodwinked by the much cleverer white members of the EDL; who are themselves, in turn, hoodwinked by “Zionists”, “millionaires”, "austerity" and whatnot. Do you get it now? Yes, that's right: only Leftists have True Consciousness because only they are untouched by the platonic “right-wing Media”. And therefore only they can never be hoodwinked.

Finally, this Leftist automaton says that

no doubt the EDL will use this incident to portray themselves as victims."       

.... Hang on a minute! These EDL members were the victim of a hit-and-run attack aimed at 15 men and women. One of those victims, Jag Singh, was seriously injured: he suffered from a broken leg and damaged spine. Now what part of that, exactly, disqualifies Jag Singh and other EDL from being genuine “victims”? Jag Singh is a victim of violence from some individuals. Fair enough, the aggressors weren't Leftist activists or Muslims. However, EDL News/Extra doesn't know that because it has relied on the news reports. 



It's as if no person who believes politically incorrect (or non-Leftist) things can ever be the victim of anything – by definition. That is, no matter what level of violence is aimed at what these cretins always call “the far right”, it's always legitimate and acceptable violence; just as banning demos/groups, the Gulag, police violence, surveillance (even by the Snowden-loving Guardian), censorship, etc. are all deemed legitimate when it comes to “smashing the fash”; yet never deemed legitimate when it comes to smashing, say, revolutionary Leftist or Islamist groups.

Again, it seems that - by Leftist definition, members of the EDL can never be the victims of anything. Why? Simply because if people dare to believe the wrong things (politically speaking), then they can never – ever - be victims. Only Muslims and people with black/brown skin (except, it seems, an Uncle Tom like Jag Singh) can be victims . Members of the white (non-Leftist) working class, on the other hand, can only ever be aggressors and "racists" – or so says EDL Extra/News.

Now what part of that, exactly, disqualifies Jag Singh and other EDL from being genuine “victims”?

To Leftists (like Stalin or Hitler), there can be no victims among the enemy. To the Left, all of the enemy can be exterminated, and they are not victims (hence the genocides by the Left throughout the 20th century: Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot).

This is exactly the same attitude found in muslims. Anjem Choudary said, on BBC TV, that only the muslims who died on 7/7 were innocent. Thus, to a muslim a suicide bomber can be a victim; those he kills cannot be a victim.

This is what happens with totalising ideologies. Our normal categories (aggressor/victim) are inverted. To totalitarians, only their values are values.

Joe,

EDL News shouldn't really be called EDL News anymore. It should be called UKIP News. Virtually all its posts nowadays are on UKIP. They probably think they've helped destroy the EDL. And, of course, the focus before that was on the BNP.

I'm absolutely convinced that if UKIP and the EDL didn't exist, these people would focus all their attention on the Conservative Party. After all, in the 1970s, 80s and 90s, they classed the Tories as "fascist" and "racist".

And if the Conservative Party didn't exist, they would be focusing on the Labour Party instead. In the 1970s/80s, these people focused most of their hatred on the 'reformists", "racists" and "reactionaries" of the Labour Party.

As usual, the Gulag hides in the background of all these Leftist groups.

just to confirm the above essay:

As some of you will be aware, one of our members Jag Singh was involved in a accident two weeks ago and has some bad injuries. We have kept it off here as it was a personel non edl related incident and the police are still investigating the incident.However due to third parties with a vested interest trying to stir trouble, Jag from his hospital bed as asked us to put on here that the incident had nothing to do with the EDL. It was not carried out by Muslims or lefties but a local incident and that it is quite pathetic that certain people are using this unfortunate incident for their own sad agenda.jags says to not get involved in pettiness and let the haters continue and use our energy for the cause and to all spare a thought for Drummer Lee Rigby.GBNF.

Arthur.

Arthur,

It says all that in the piece:

"This need to ask the opinion of a self-styled expert on the "far right" and the EDL is even more bizarre considering the fact that this hit-and-run incident was not political anyway. According to certain people directly involved in the attack, it had nothing to do with politics. Yes, the people at the pub were EDL members; though it wasn't an EDL event. The Birmingham Mail, ITV News and other news outlets don't seem to realise this fact."

I contacted Jag Singh personally and changed the article. The article says that the attack was not political. Despite that, Jag may think it should be removed entirely. But I told him that the piece is not about Leftists or Muslims attacking the EDL: it's about the Birmingham Mail, etc. feeling the need to ask known Leftists about the EDL and then quoting them in detail.

All the rest of the info is from the Birmingham Mail, ITV News, etc. So I didn't add anything to what was already known by people who had read these newspapers.

The other thing is that Gary Hastings, or EDL News/Extra, clearly thought that it was a political attack and his comments show that. Had he known it wasn't political, he wouldn't have said anything and the Birmingham Mail wouldn't have ran the story in the way that it did. In other words, the Birmingham Mail falsely assumed it was political too.

Besides which, I'm not EDL. I defend the EDL but I don't really support it. That is, I don't go to any demos or get involved in any EDL activities.

Hi Paul, I didn't post to attack you, I just passed on the message mate.

Arthur.

That's OK Arthur.

The post wasn't particularly aimed at you. I was just clarifying what's in the piece and why I wrote what I wrote.

I don't know if Jag Singh has read it since I made the changes. Despite that, even the original version (which Jag responded to) didn't say that Leftists or Muslims attacked EDL members. There was no way I could have known if they were Leftist attackers because I relied exclusively on the newspaper articles and I have no EDL contacts in the Midlands.

Muslim Terrorism Count

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11

Mission Overview

Most Western societies are based on Secular Democracy, which itself is based on the concept that the open marketplace of ideas leads to the optimum government. Whilst that model has been very successful, it has defects. The 4 Freedoms address 4 of the principal vulnerabilities, and gives corrections to them. 

At the moment, one of the main actors exploiting these defects, is Islam, so this site pays particular attention to that threat.

Islam, operating at the micro and macro levels, is unstoppable by individuals, hence: "It takes a nation to protect the nation". There is not enough time to fight all its attacks, nor to read them nor even to record them. So the members of 4F try to curate a representative subset of these events.

We need to capture this information before it is removed.  The site already contains sufficient information to cover most issues, but our members add further updates when possible.

We hope that free nations will wake up to stop the threat, and force the separation of (Islamic) Church and State. This will also allow moderate Muslims to escape from their totalitarian political system.

The 4 Freedoms

These 4 freedoms are designed to close 4 vulnerabilities in Secular Democracy, by making them SP or Self-Protecting (see Hobbes's first law of nature). But Democracy also requires - in addition to the standard divisions of Executive, Legislature & Judiciary - a fourth body, Protector of the Open Society (POS), to monitor all its vulnerabilities (see also Popper). 
1. SP Freedom of Speech
Any speech is allowed - except that advocating the end of these freedoms
2. SP Freedom of Election
Any party is allowed - except one advocating the end of these freedoms
3. SP Freedom from Voter Importation
Immigration is allowed - except where that changes the political demography (this is electoral fraud)
4. SP Freedom from Debt
The Central Bank is allowed to create debt - except where that debt burden can pass across a generation (25 years).

An additional Freedom from Religion is deducible if the law is applied equally to everyone:

  • Religious and cultural activities are exempt from legal oversight except where they intrude into the public sphere (Res Publica)"
