EBFington Post special edition: Britain First exposed

ExposingBF Blog

A few days ago we launched The EBFington Post. It’s part of a wider plan to step up our campaign against Britain First and the far-right in general. Britain First is on its way out but tin-pot neo-nazis will remain. We’ll have to wait and see which ludicrous banner they flock to next. For now the job of EBF is to deliver Britain First’s final death blow. It’s a war of ideas and Britain First is losing ground fast but it’s not quite dead yet.

The EBFington Post’s newly appointed editorial team aims to make The Post a resource for Antifascists to stay informed for many years to come – long after the Biffers have been forgotten. Our library of free information guides begins with this inaugural special edition, Britain First exposed.

In fact, like I said you will find that there is hardly a thing that Allah has prohibited except you find the Muslims doing it. The one thing I thought is worth mentioning, in fact I will say it is important to mention it brothers and sisters especially in this time, is the action of supporting the disbelievers against the Muslims. Supporting the disbelievers against the Muslims…

Non-violent extremism – Not new, not criminalising Islam

Aldgate Pup

‘Criminalising Islam’. There’s a couple of words that have popped up a lot over the last few years. Muslims who like to use this phrase believe that Islam is being singled out, that ‘orthodox’ Islamic beliefs are being unfairly put under the spotlight. If you listened to enough of the ‘orthodox’ spokespeople and scholars who share this view, you might come to the conclusion that there is indeed a war being waged against Islam in the UK. You don’t exactly see nationalists or Christians with similar views receiving the same kind of treatment, do you? Or do you?

What kind of beliefs are we talking about here? It’s often based around the subjects of apostasy, blasphemy, gay sex, stoning and flogging. There is no death penalty for leaving Christianity or nationalism, nor for mocking Jesus or any nationalist figure, leaving no way of comparing them to the reactions to apostasy…
