The sayings of BNP leader Nick Griffin
Nick Griffin, the leader of the BNP, has been at pains to rebrand his party as an electable modern choice for the white working class.
Since taking over the BNP leadership in 1999, he has managed to transform the BNP from a small minority that were renowned chiefly for thuggery and their association with the National Front, into a party with a much more mainstream appeal.
But he has a controversial past, which includes a conviction for incitement to racial hatred, and has made many extremist statements. Here are some:
ON ISLAM:"A wicked, vicious faith."
"A multi-racial hell hole."
ON THE HOLOCAUST:
"I am well aware that the orthodox opinion is that 6 million Jews were gassed and cremated or turned into lampshades. Orthodox opinion also once held that the earth is flat... I have reached the conclusion that the 'extermination' tale is a mixture of Allied wartime propaganda, extremely profitable lie, and latter-day witch-hysteria."
"Without the White race, nothing matters. [Other right-wing parties] believe that the answer to the race question is integration and a futile attempt to create 'Black Britons', while we affirm that non-Whites have no place here at all and will not rest until every last one has left our land."
"The people who have the brains and ability got out [of London] years ago, one way or another. The people who are left are either the 15 per cent of the population who are happy to put up with it, they're so decadent they actually like it, or they are too stupid to do anything about it. They will vote BNP, but you can't build a movement on those people."
ON ADOLF HITLER:
"Yes, Adolf went a bit too far. His legacy is the biggest problem that the British nationalist movement has to deal with. It just creates a bad image."
ON MEIN KAMPF:"At 13, I read Mein Kampf, making notes in the margins... I remember thinking, are the Jews really that bad? The chapter I most enjoyed was the one on propaganda and organisation: there are some really useful ideas there."
ON A COUNCIL ELECTION VICTORY IN MILLWALL IN 1993:
"[BNP voters backed] what they perceived to be a strong, disciplined organisation with the ability to back up its slogan 'Defend Rights for Whites' with well-directed boots and fists. When the crunch comes, power is the product of force and will, not of rational debate."
ON A PREVIOUS LEADER OF THE BRITISH FAR-RIGHT:
"There is a strong, direct link from Oswald Mosley to me."
ON THE 1999 BOMBING OF THE ADMIRAL DUNCAN, A GAY PUB IN LONDON'S SOHO:
"The TV footage of dozens of 'gay' demonstrators flaunting their perversions in front of the world's journalists showed just why so many ordinary people find these creatures so repulsive."
ON THE MEDIA:
"Those involved must work to nail the media lies which are used by our enemies to try to divide us and make us afraid to be seen standing side by side with Third Way nations such as Libya and Iran." ·
