I'm With Stupid

I cannot believe the bollocks that I have read on some of the right-wing blogs listed on this page. Apparently, the BNP is a 'socialist' party. This is so wrong I do not know where to start. It seems that they have fallen for the line that the Nazi party took. They used many socialist and nationalist policies to attract a broad range of people to their party. However, their predominant view was a right-wing one. I am trying to work out which category these people fall in, they are either:

  • terminally stupid
  • or just plain evil

I would like to think it is just stupidity, but I fear it verges on the evil. So what does the BNP stand for?? Well according to their website, the following:

  • The ending of immigration to the UK
  • The repeal of all equality and anti-discrimination legislation, including measures aimed at employing people with disabilities
  • The introduction of corporal punishment for petty criminals and vandals, and the introduction of capital punishment for paedophiles, terrorists and murderers
  • The reintroduction of national service and the withdrawal of some civil rights from conscientious objectors, including the right to vote
  • funding to encourage women (in every family) to stay home and raise children not yet of school age.

Now maybe I am being a little naive here, but I do not know a single leftie who supports these views. What kind of socialist wants an unequal society, where foreigners aren't welcome, criminals are executed, the disabled are victimised and women are 'encouraged' to stay at home and look after the kids. Not exactly what I believed a socialist government would support. Hardly a system based on social equality is it??

This is why I question the integrity of those who believe that the BNP is a socialist party. Anyone with a basic grasp of politics would be able to tell you that the far-left and the far-right virtually meet at some point (see Hitler and Stalin, in some regards their policies were indistinguishable). To make the conclusion that the BNP is, therefore, a socialist party is to show a deep misunderstanding of the political landscape.
