The article below isn’t all that significant, but I’m posting excerpts from it for two reasons:
|1.||It very clearly illustrates the rule of the Uni-Party in the UK, much the as franchises of the same party rule in France, Germany, Sweden, the Netherlands, and the United States.|
|2.||It mentions (blush) Gates of Vienna.
Notice that the author is one “Adam Barnett, Local Democracy Reporter”. Why a “democracy reporter”? Could his beat instead be “fascism”, “despotism”, or perhaps “totalitarianism”?
And which of those isms better fits as a description of the rule of the Tory-Labour Party in Britain?
Anyway, here’s what the article from The Hackney Citizen says, with a few baronial comments interpolated:
Tory candidate in Hoxton suspended for anti-Muslim posts on social media
Alexander van Terheyden went to a far-right rally and has defended the crusades
Oh, NOES! Far-right, how ghastly! And defended the Crusades!
That was a day that will live in infamy…
A council candidate in Hackney has been suspended by the Conservative Party for anti-Muslim posts on social media, the Citizen can reveal.
Alexander van Terheyden, standing for the Conservatives in Hoxton West, has called Islam a “violent political ideology” comparable to fascism and communism, and recently attended a rally headed by the former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson.
Yep. Tommy Robinson. Enoch Powell. Benito Mussolini. Adolf Hitler. All the same, and all far-far-far-right.
He has also called the UK’s refusing entry to alt-right activists who target NGO ships rescuing migrants a “disgrace”, and said the crusades were “simply a response to Islam spreading through Europe by the sword”.
The Hackney Conservative Party says it was not aware of Terheyden’s social media posts and is “urgently investigating”, adding that Terheyden has been “suspended with immediate effect”.
Here’s the part that made me cringe, though:
Terheyden claims he is not anti-Muslim, only anti-Islam.
Anyone who has the ambition for any sort of political career, however marginal, is required to issue disclaimers such as this one. Everyone who holds “far-right” opinions like Mr. Van Terheyden’s feels compelled to do so.
But it never helps. As long as they continue to oppose mass immigration and Islamization, they will be demonized in the media and hounded by their opponents — including members of their own party — until they are brought low and have their faces ground into the gravel. In other words, until they pay the jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
The Hackney Conservative Federation, in a statement today, said: “Yesterday, we were forwarded an email from Adam Barnett of the Hackney Citizen regarding posts made by Alex van Terheyden on social media.
“We were unaware of these posts and are urgently investigating this matter.
“Mr van Terheyden’s membership of the Conservative Party has been suspended with immediate effect.”
Imtiaz Lunat, the Conservative Party’s candidate for Mayor of Hackney, has been contacted for comment but has not replied at time of publication.
The fact that the Tory candidate for mayor is a Muslim tells you all you need to know about the “Conservative” Party in Hackney.
Terheyden, a video blogger, DJ and former Pirate Party candidate, attended the Tommy Robinson “free speech” rally in Hyde Park on 18 March, and shared photos and a video of the event on Facebook and YouTube.
In a Facebook discussion about Islam under the photos, Terheyden said: “A political ideology that was born out of violence and pushed upon the world with violence by a dishonest tyrant deserves as much criticism as it can get and hopefully in time people will see it for what it really is.”
In the same post he endorsed a piece from the far-right website Gates of Vienna titled “The Crusades: A Response to Islamic Aggression”, and said: “As David previously stated the crusaders were simply a response to Islam spreading through Europe by the sword.
“Should they have sat back and done nothing and watched while Christians were taxed into submission or beheaded?”
It makes me laugh whenever I see this website described as “far-right”. Go ahead, punk! Call me far-right, and make my day!
But I can afford to laugh, because I’m not running for political office. I pity anyone holding opinions like mine who is trying to enter politics.
