This was one of the reasons I made this thread. After reading some comments made about immigrants in the uk. It made me wonder how some of the
sentiments expressed in the posts could be manipulated into real life actions under the right circumstances. I just wanted to avoid calling people
directly out on it. So I thought maybe a video reminder could be a more subtle approach. Just look what is happening with the Golden Dawn in Greece
and like you say the sentiment of the likes of the EDL.
Do you not feel ALL extremes are dangerous? The reason I ask is that I have often seen many condemn one extreme, promising to go down fighting them,
while ignoring what the other extremes do, indeed sometimes seemingly to me, making excuses for similar behaviour..
In recent recent years the local March for England has ended up as a battle between supposed left and right.. and the way that happened is that it
some supposed Anti-fascists from Bristol thought the March in Brighton (like others) would be racist, and planned to smash these fascist/racist
marchers (I know as I, and others who knew Brighton voiced our concerns at the time)
Just happens the march, you know being Brighton (the hotbed of homophobic racism that votes for the evil Greens) was a fun day out for families and
kids that usually ended with a picnic on the lawns, bands like the Ghurkas would occasionally join in and March along, then the likes of the EDL hear
that there will be supposed anti-fascists at the March and so decided to join themselves...
So what was a pleasant family lark has turned into a left vs right battle, I guess it just replaces the bank holiday battles between Mods, Rockers and
Skinheads that I grew up with, but in this instance it was the supposed anti-fascists that created the situation.. I am sure there are plenty of
others times where the supposed fascists have created a similar situation..
But I get so furious that some only see the danger in one extreme, when the others are pretty much equal in my eyes. Personally I will fight against
all extremes as I see them ALL as dangerous and see them all as at risk of becoming the new brown shirts..
I have to admit that I guess I see myself more as a clubman from the Civil War era, wanting to defend my area, my friends, my family and my home from
the ravages of either extreme and will probably get my arse handed to me for that position.. but I honestly can not see any other position to take
other than oppose all forms of extremism.

the fascist as they all seem equal in my eyes.
Edit to add:
I DO feel sure that we are heading for a repeat of WW2, the whole landscape is far to similar and scary for my liking, I can't tell how close we are
though..It feels like it'll now only take one significant incident and the whole deck of cards will fall.. but who will be seen as the new evil after
than I have no idea... but what I do know is that we (as a nation) are equally at risk of becoming the new evil, indeed some already say we
