FOR BRITAIN QUESTIONING ISLAM

On the evening of Sunday the 18th of November members of For Britain went along to a meeting in Preston under the provocative heading of:  Questioning Islam; Is it now time to establish the Islamic Caliphate in the UK? (The advertising poster went on to say): “Many questions are being asked about the place of Islam in the modern world. With the chaos of Brexit and the breakdown of some of the social structures in the UK, can the Islamic caliphate provide a solution?” If you have always wanted to talk about this subject and ask a Muslim a question about Islam or Muhammad that you haven’t before, in case of offending or upsetting them, then please join us (for this talk)”
For Britain fully believe in democracy and debate in a free society, so rather than employ left wing tactics of trying to close an event down that we fundamentally disagree with the premise of, a number of members decided to attend and ask the questions as requested. We did not announce to anyone that we were to attend, as we did not want to create any undue attention, and always mindful of the threat against our members from the far left, we did not want to necessitate security. At no point did anyone mention that we were members of For Britain, we attended as normal members of the public.
The meeting was promoted by an organisation called The Light Foundation, based in Preston. From a reading of their website The Light Foundation appears to be an Islamic community and outreach organisation.
I would estimate that there were between 40 and 50 people in attendance, and I would also estimate that more than half were Muslim (all male). The panel was made up of two Muslim spiritual leaders and was chaired by a young Muslim solicitor. The event took place in a church hall, not a mosque.
Straight out of the blocks, one of the Panel, Adam, said ‘no’ he did not think this was time for a Caliphate in the UK!  He then followed up immediately with the provocative question; “so, should we all just go home now then?”  Of course the audience did not get up and leave, instead conversation, dialogue and questions between the audience and panel and also between members of the audience ensued robustly for the next couple of hours.

ANNE MARIE WATERS , TOMMY ROBINSON: MIDDLE EAST FORUM

Anne Marie Waters and Tommy Robinson and others yesterday spoke at an event hosted by Republican Congressman Paul Goser in Washington D.C.  The event , part organised by the Middle East Forum , focused on censorship and ‘de-platforming’. Anne Marie Waters of the For Britain Party, told about her extensive difficulties in setting up a new party – simply opening a bank account or renting offices.  Ezra Levant of Rebel Media also attended the event as did Raheem Kassam.

Warwick University reschedule Anne Marie Waters

A talk by far-right politician Anne Marie Waters organised by the PPE Society has been postponed today. The “Far Right Off Campus” protest planned in response to the event has also consequently been postponed.
This afternoon, Warwick PPE posted on the event page: “This event has been rescheduled to a later date. Please look out for further information.”
When asked about the reason for rescheduling the talk, the PPE society told The Boar: “With the event occurring so early in term, some logistical issues were unable to be resolved to the high standard that we require for all our events. While the rescheduling is unfortunate, it is important that this event is done right.
“As we have previously stated, none of our speaker bookings are indicative of an endorsement of their points of view. However, we would be surprised if there were no negative responses to some of our events. The mission of our Speaker Series is not to provide only viewpoints that few will disagree with, but to provide a range of ideas to stimulate debate. We are deeply concerned with the concept of students acting as moral arbiters, deciding what is and isn’t allowed as an idea.
“This being said, we welcome and encourage all peaceful and legal protests, as these carry just as much weight in a free and healthy democracy as free speech does. However we condemn in the strongest possible terms any personal attacks on individuals within PPE Society or the Executive Team. Sending an invitation to a speaker is certainly not an act that is deserving of online abuse.”
The talk, the first in Warwick PPE’s Speaker Series, was originally scheduled for 6:00pm today. The event was entitled “Culture, Politics and Free Speech: British Society” and according to the event page, Anne Marie Waters would discuss “the state of rights and freedoms of women in the UK, the importance of defending free speech, as well as the contemporary issues of immigration and multiculturalism.”
Anne Marie Waters has been known to hold controversial views in the past, as the founder and leader of the anti-Islam party For Britain. She was also part of the UK Independence Party, standing for the party’s leadership in 2017.
The “Far-Right Off Campus!” protest, originally scheduled for today at 5:30pm, was organised by Warwick Labour, Warwick Pride, Warwick for Free Education (WFFE), Warwick Anti-Racism Society (WARSoc), and a number of other societies. As of 1pm today, 127 people had expressed they would be attending the event and 299 were interested. The event had been shared 51 times.

BRITISH ARMY SUBMIT TO ISLAM

 

A few days ago Tommy Robinson was photographed in the company of some very young british soldiers who wanted a few ‘selfies’ with him. It was obvious from the video of the event that this had nothing to do with politics but was simple a case of some 16 year olds wanting a photo with a celebrity but following a complaint by the Muslim Council of Great Britain the army authorities came out with a statement condemning ‘extremism’ and ‘hatred’ etc etc.  They condemned Robinson as a far right figure and said there was no place in the army for anyone who shared his views. A few days later this video appeared on YouTube and it is certain that this Sergeant Major would not have put this video out without the permission , if not the blessing , of his superiors.

The message to clear – Anyone who speaks out against Islam is the enemy. Anyone who speaks out against the new world order of open borders and hate speech laws is the enemy. Who  is going to protect the people from dhimmi soldiers like this ? This man sees  people like Tommy Robinson ( and presumable the For Britain Party ) as the enemy. He has been well trained and brainwashed by his Muslim masters…….There can be no more pretence or denial – Britain is at war and the state , the police force and now the army are the enemy of the people. This is war and the state has turned on the people and it is time for people to accept and acknowledge this fact and act accordingly…..

 

GAYS AGAINST SHARIA MARCH

In a few days time there will be a Gays Against Sharia march in Stockton- On-Tees , UK.  A handful of people will turn up and there will of course be a  counter protest organised on this occasion by Teesside Peoples Assembly with support from Stand Up To Racism and the Unite trade union. Anne Marie Waters is due to give a speech but the reality is that there will be very few people listening to her apart from the handful of people from Gays Against Sharia .  Someone will , do doubt , make a video which will be posted on Youtube which will be watched by those who support Anne Marie but few others.  The local media will report the whole thing as a ‘far right’ demo which was frustrated and prevented from spreading hatred by a variety of ‘anti fascists’.  The local Labour Party MP,  Alex Cunningham , has already condemned the march……….’  well , you know the story , we have seen and heard it all before and it won’t be any different this time ’round.

So , is there any point in holding these marches – do they achieve anything or are they actually doing more harm than good ?  They certainly benefit the so-called ‘anti fascists’ , that much is for sure. But the benefit for For Britain , or indeed , for gay people is far from obvious. The ‘anti fascists’ will have , for them , a good day out and get to do what they like to do most , ie to call other people scum while getting a clap on the back for their troubles but what do For Britain get out of all this ?  Abuse , and public opprobrium – perhaps some new members …… but that is by no means a certainty.   Nothing will happen to the ‘anti fascists’ – they will shout , Scum , Scum , Scum to their heart’s content knowing that For Britain will do nothing about it. The local newspaper will slander Anne Marie and nothing will be done about it and the good people of Teesside will continue voting for Mr. Cunningham.

Britain is morphing into a police state.  Normal conversation is now a criminal offence.  Teachers call the police and social services if they find out that parents have the wrong political opinion.  Children are brainwashed into believing that all cultures are equal except of course their own –  and all this is happening in England.  How did it come to this ?  Britain , the cradle of modern democracy has become a parliamentary dictatorship where more and more people are afraid to open their mouths for fear of public shaming or criminal prosecution . How could this have happened ?  And what , if anything can be done ?

We need to get serious about our enemies. We need to start telling these people that they will be held responsible for their actions. We need to tell these people that this is personal and that there will be no forgiveness , no turning the other cheek.  For Britain must stand up , and stand up now , to these thugs and latter-day neo- fascists.  We must target the journalists and mob ringleaders , we must get in their faces and make it personal. We must be , in short , just a nasty as they are…… We must give these thugs a taste of their own medicine.
