Donald Trump retweets far-right group’s videos

Donald Trump has retweeted three inflammatory videos from a British far-right group.

The first tweet from Jayda Fransen, the deputy leader of Britain First, claims to show a Muslim migrant attacking a man on crutches.

This was followed by two more videos of people Ms Fransen claims to be Muslim.

Britain First was founded in 2011 by former members of the far-right British National Party (BNP).

The group has grabbed attention on social media with controversial posts about what they deem “the Islamification of the UK”.

It has put up members to run in European elections and by-elections on anti-immigration and anti-abortion policies, but has yet to secure any seats.

It also contested the most recent London mayoral election, receiving 1.2% of the vote.

The anti-immigration party trying to recruit immigrants

Although their manifesto calls for a near-total halt to immigration, the far-right political party Britain First is now actively trying to appeal to Polish immigrants.

They are a fringe group, with no elected officials at any level, but Britain First has about 1.9 million Facebook likes – more than any other UK political party. And now they’re trying to use that social media footprint to make explicit appeals to Polish immigrants living in the UK.

A string of Britain First videos that seem designed to attract a Polish audience have appeared online. Recent ones include a video from Jacek Miedlar, a Polish far-right former priest, an interview with a Polish media outlet that has over half a million views, and videos by Polish Britain First supporters encouraging others to support the party.

      • Why, please? It’s very easy for anyone to hide themselves anonymously and make such comments, especially if they want to shut down discourse, and discourage other potential readers from knowing The Truth. There’s a word for what you do . . .

      • Perhaps the following example from The Law…the SAME Law that Elizabeth A.M. Battenburg/Mountbatten swore she would do her UTMOST to maintain..will set the record straight on what is twaddle and what is rational.

        Deuteronomy 24:7 If a man be found stealing any of his brethren of the children of Israel, and maketh merchandise of him, or selleth him; then that thief shall die; and thou shalt put evil away from among you.

        The penalty shouldn’t “fit” the crime; the penalty should PREVENT the crime. That’s how we should be putting evil out from among us. We have a duty to each other and the greater good to hold each other accountable for our actions.

        IF we did that, we could get rid of the EVIL of all of this child trafficking, child molestation, paedophilia and murdering that has gone on for far too long in Rotherham and elsewhere.

        Or we can continue to do things our way, and have a government filled with pedophiles and child traffickers, that have made merchandise of every single person they were supposed to serve. Governments pledge our life earnings as collateral to borrow more money to finance whatever they want. Including more children to molest.

          Please accept that I reject old texts from whatever religion as “truths” that cannot be challenged or rejected in full. Religion is a cause of too much havoc.

      • Ah poetmorgan, Generally speaking I like your posts; you normally present good argument. But when it comes to the Judaeo /Christian subject you cease to present argument and decline into schoolboy spite. I understand it very well because I used to do it. Something I now cringe at the rememberance of it. Folk like you PM remind me of people who like the benefits that Christianity brought to civilisation but won’t pay your dues……
        This is probably the only subject you and Reg agree on…
        For really good argument on just about anything Ben Shapiro cleans the floor up with far left liberals. I dare you and Reg to youtube him….Lessons on how to debate free speech without spite; there’s nobody better that I can think of….

        I like C S Lewis quote. “There are two types of people. Those who say Thy will be done and those to whom God says, alright then have it your own way” One day we will all know the consequences of this vital choice , won’t we.

      • Poet Morgan, you wrote this:
        How is declining to debate a subject area “Spite”?

        Yet you wrote the above, just after writing this about me:
        “Sh, a wack job”

        How was your comment not to be construed as a direct attempt at a cheap insult to me personally and deter others from viewing my article, please?

        Linda Wheeler saw it correctly for what it was, in my opinion.

        A “subject” was raised about a government sponsored organisation known as TELL MAMA. TELL MAMA sets out to Measure Anti-Muslim Attacks and are big on promoting the PREVENT agenda. My article questioned TELL MAMA’s motives and provided numerous links as evidence to support the validity of my questions addressed directly to them about their propaganda and claims. TELL MAMA are trying to re-brand Islam to Muslims in the UK, and I suggest they have absolutely no right to do so. I do not believe TELL MAMA to be genuine in their pursuits. They are more of a hindrance than a help when it comes to discerning truth about all the terror attacks, which are in fact acts of treasonous tyranny.

        The Donald Trump post concerned the same subject of Hate Crime. Hence, my article had some CLEAR relevance and raises a lot of far-reaching deadly serious questions, many of which are essentially of a non-religious nature. Such questions concern the difference between the discernment between truth and falsehood regarding all the terror threat news being promulgated by our governments and mainstream media. Is it somehow wrong for me to raise questions on here about the veracity of all this propaganda within our midst, please?

      • Linda, I utterly resent your disgusting suggestion that I am an antisemite.

        I have several really close Isreali Jewish friends, people who I have worked with here in Europe, and have visited back in Israel on several occasions to be with them.
        It is not easy for a liberal Isreali Jew in that country today, under that government.

        Equally, I am an anti-Zionist and someone who strongly supports BDS, and strongly objects to the “settlements”, and whilst I have only got to know two “settlers” – both UK born, well I really don’t want to meet any more, their attitudes appalled me.

        Back in the 1970’s, I spent many many months working for the UNHCR on a Palestinian refugee camp, in Jordan.

        I live daily with the reality of what I have witnessed, you just live with your disgusting bigotry.

It always goes down like a lead balloon and looses the main topic which in this case Reg is ” have the BDS an association with the Moslem Brotherhood or not”…. That is the question and also the answer re is Anti Zionism really anti Semitism in disguise. You didn’t answer that question Reg….

  5. I find it strange how many elements of Western politics want to prescribe solutions for the Levant. Since 1919 there had been a lot of good and not so good intentioned interference that has tended to make bad situations worse.
    Syria is in ruins. Saudi Barbaria want to have Lebanon go the same way.
    We have Muslims fleeing to Christian countries to escape persecution by other Muslims and a seeming return to twelfth century strife.
    The idea the “something must be done” is preached by the well intentioned. But what ought foreign busy bodies do? The Lebantine peoples got on together before outside interference but less so now.

  6. On my first ship, in 1962 we docked in Beirut. I walked on Mount Lebanon, visited Beirut sufs and Biblos. What a beautiful land the Lebanon is.. Then they tore the place apart in a massive civil war starting in the 70s.
    I believe much has been rebuilt now but instability remains and we have outside powers arming factions once again. It was a land of bad drivers and brilliant cooking. It is a shame too many people cannot resist meddling in the affairs of others.

      The first time I arrived there was in 1972 when things were a bit tense (to say the least).
      It is a beautiful country, as is Syria, yet Jordan a is still the one I love most, even though you now have to pay to visit Petra (!!!!!). Tourism changes everything.

      I heard recently that EasyJet and RyanAir are now flying into Essaouira, Morocco.
      When I first went there in the 1960’s it was a lovely town, with just one decent hotel (Hotel des Isles), a Jewish Quarter – full of jewellery shops and with the one wine shop in the town (it was was also Disreali’s family hometown). Last time I went back was 2005, I hate to think what it is like today.

  7. On the other hand, the next year I visited Honk Kong after a cyclone smashed the place. It was a mess. Then in 2012 I went back. Some change, the place was massively improved, economically at least. There was an airport where one of our frigate escorts had anchored!
    In the 1920s and 1930s the place had been plagued by pirate raids on shipping.
    Nothing in the world stays the same!
    It is one of the reasons I preferred Brexit. Not in a dogmatic way, just giving use more potential in the future in a constantly changing world.
