EDL Leaders Arrested on Way to Protest and their Homes Raided

Old Holborn has also covered this, but I'd like to throw in my two penn'orth.

Members of the EDL were arrested on their way to a joint march with the SDL in Scotland. Here is a statement about the arrest by the EDL.

By contrast, here is a report on the march itself by the BBC.

Notice the fact that the EDL arrests were not mentioned: also note the fact that the march is reported as an anti-fascism march by the UAF and others, including trades unions.

Note also that the homes of the EDL members were raided. Now I assume these homes are several miles away from where the members were arrested, so the search of their homes shows some premeditation on the part of the Police to detain EDL members and use that as an excuse to go on a fishing expedition.

Note that this sort of Police activity isn't confined to so-called extremists: remember the case of Damian Green, the MP who was arrested and had his home searched by anti-terror Police, all because he was using a source in the Home Office to brief against the government? Same trick: arrest, intimidation, bullying. Of a democratically elected representative.

Now, I always say if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, then its a duck. I'll let you the reader decide whether this looks suspiciously close to Authoritarianism, Nazism, Communism, or just a plain old Police State. But, when you see people openly being denied their right to speak out against anti-democratic practices, then you can't deny the fact any longer. In fact it only re-inforces the standpoint of those arrested and denied their democratic rights and any casual observer who cares to see past the media smokescreen and see the truth: that people are only allowed to demonstrate a viewpoint allied to that of the government. Anything else  will be suppressed.

At the end of their statement, the EDL say they will be gathering outside Parliament on the 5th of March. It may be time for those of us who want this country free of tyrrany to join them in their protest.

To those who are monitoring EDL activity and come by this blog because I've linked to their pages, I say thank you for your time, but there is nothing to see here. I am a patriot and I'm disgusted at the social engineering project being wrought by this Labour Government. I'm also disgusted at the actions of a once impartial Police force in suppressing the voices of those that dissent from the status quo. Free speech is just that: it is free from influence or duress of any kind. It is my right to say things that others may find offensive, it is my right to say things others find uncomfortable, it is my right to say things even if you believe them to be untrue. That is my right.That is the right of anyone, including people like the EDL. No matter how unpalatable their message is to those in power, their right to say it is one I'll defend, just as their opponents have their right to rebut the EDL's message.

  1. Good post. The authorities by their actions, are the best recruiters for new members of the Defence Leagues. The UK is already an undemocratic police state, and its people are going to have to work hard to get a lot of their freedoms back.

  2. Add this to the mass rounding up of the 'usual suspects' in Manchester.
    We are not just sleep walking into a Police State we are already there.

    The worrying thing is these actions appear to be instigated by The Police Commanders themselves.

    Whether it is because they are doing what they think their political masters want, to curry favour or by their own twisted vision of a new Common Purpose UK order, it does not bode well for us all

  4. yea, they have got a right to freedom of speech.
    But the EDL aint about freedom of speech. Ok fine, theres plenty of peeps in their organisation who are not racist/nazi.
    BUt their core is very much nazi, and what they dont have the right to do, is start riots, violence, and intimidate their political oppenents as well as ethnic minorities, which is EXACTLY what the EDL core membership have been doing.

    Stop supporting a bunch of fucking nazis.

  5. 3rd party..The EDL has ethnic minorities within its ranks. The aim of the Defence Leagues is to halt the Islamification of the UK, and to halt the advance of Sharia law. I, and a lot of people support their aims. If I wanted to live in a repressed muslim country I would go to somewhere like Saud Arabia, but I do not want to. I do not want people to come to my country and impose their miserable woman hating way of life on me either.

    As usual the authorities show themselves to be the fascists here. They allowed immigration to run out of control, and now do not want to face up to the consequences of having done this. EDL or no EDL, I think that riots and bloodshed are now inevitable. I think the EDL have a march in Bradford next. Could be interesting. Good luck to them, as its the only way to get our stupid politicians to take notice.

  6. 3rd Party:

    I am not supporting either the EDL or the UAF. What I am supporting is the right of both organisations to peacfully demonstrate and promote their messages without interference or intimidation.

    Free speech and by extension democracy do not exist if you are only allowed to express government-sanctioned opinions.

    Point-of-fact: the only people I've seen acting in a manner that could be construed as Nazi are officers of the government, whether acting alone or under orders.

    The Damien Green case shows that government officers will act to supress anyone (not just the EDL) acting contrary to the government's "comfort zone".

    Such actions are anti-democratic and if the government aren't behind such actions then they should publicly state such actions should stop.

  9. Lol. How stupid the above comments seem now. After videos of them giving police officers a kicking on the ground, and smashing up fried shicken shops full of woman and children. They are nothing but cokes up ex and wannabe hooligans, funded by zionist Alan Lake.
