I guess these people were the technical host behind Sunday’s shouting match. Definitely the hundreds of people united against fascism won the utter freedom of speech competition, scored with the traditional volumonitor. Probably that’s why the so-called Brighton Mighty Infidels declared “no surrender” to a picture on their facebook page which appeared to suggest that they had set up something called Anti Anti Fascist Action.
“No surrender” seems to be a bit of buzzword with this lot. Actually, it’s more of a general greeting, appearing on every post, usually on its own.
Remember, the English Defence League insists that it is purely motivated by fear of Islam rising up and dominating them. Their worst nightmare is turning up in Brighton on St George’s Day next year only to face spectacularly huge sound systems blasting them with the call to prayer. What better way to declare everyone welcome?! If you can’t quite get your head around it, put your headphones on, turn it to 11, and listen whilst watching the Mighty Brighton Infidels parading around town.
We’d need something extraordinarily powerful to blast these hauntingly lovely vocals into the fascist ears. Not a problem, we’ve got every DJ on earth in town just now. I digress.
As they’ve established themselves, the English Defence League does not trust Muslims. It would seem that they also distrust people with left-wing opinions.
That’s one solution to the age old fascist problem of lacking the necessary equipment for a decent rhetorical flourish. Something tells me that the Mighty Brighton Infidels have got a bit of an issue with the Green Party in Brighton & Hove. The man photographed can answer for himself with far more eloquence than me: Ben Duncan blogs – here’s him on the EDL demonstration in Brighton.
Here’s another Green councillor, this time representing Hove.
Oh and that’s Bill Randall over on the right. Not much explanation of the political analysis these images represent, aside from the bit about “no surrender”. So far, we’ve got “no surrender” to anti anti fascist action, “no surrender” to a vegan marathon running councillor, “no surrender” to another councillor and her with friend the witch and “no surrender to Bill Randall”.
What’s missing? Is it any collection of political policies? Perhaps even some ideas for change? Praise for someone who has done something worthwhile, something positive? No… clearly there needs to be a David Icke style suggestion that our Green Party Brighton & Hove City overlords have used their lizard powers to shape shift and subvert democracy, thus proving that it needs to be taken away for ever! Of course…
That’s better. Now the local division of the English Defence League can truly live up to their name! You’d have to be, very literally, the Brighton Mighty Infidels to stand up to the awesomely frightening lizard Queen from outer space who befuddles English minds with her alien chattering.
