The hypocrisy of the media and the left truly boggles the mind. Last year after an EDL rally every tv at my gym was showing a different station's continuous replay of EDL reels, alongside claims that facism had been resurrected in the UK and what I can only describe as sensationalist reporting. During that same year, several Hamas support/anti-Israel rallies took place in London, however for these there was little media coverage. I do remember watching a video on the BBC's website of riot police being injured by protestors and Starbucks getting smashed up - but that is about it. There was no public outcry, no editorials, no continuous coverage on major news stations. I am aware that other EDL events have resulted in violence and scuffles with police, although yesterday's was peaceful. There is some news coverage of yesterday's events, but not nearly as much as other EDL events have received - when they have been crucified by the media. As I have said before, I am not a fan of the EDL and if you want to know why read my previous posts. Nonetheless, the complete and total hypocrisy of the media and the left(although not shocking) is staggering. It is also worth noting that the Met (London Police) have said of the roughly 50 people arrested during yesterday's events, the majority were anti-EDL protestors.
Hamas? No problem.
England? Now that's trouble.
Saying Israelis are terrorists: Part of mainstream discourse here.
Saying you want Mosques shut down: Clearly you are a Nazi.
Israelis are Nazis. But Geert Wilders is a fascist for comapring parts of the Quran to Mein Kempf. Can you say Grand Mufti??
Supporting the Intifada: What's wrong with a terror campaign against Israel?
Wanting to shut down East London Mosque: Racist. Fascist. Nazi. [I wrote about ELM in previous posts - they hosted Anwar al-Awlaki, although disassociated from him after the undiebomber.]
Saying Israelis are baby killers and baby eaters - nobody cares.
Vowing to never submit to Islam? Wanting women to show their face in public? Raaaaaaaaaaaacist.
Letting your kid dress up like a Hamas soldier and covering his face? Cool. The fact that EDL members have worn masks at previous events - clearly they have something to hide, oh, and they're nazis.
Father and Son Hezbollah. Quality time supporting one of Iran's proxy terror groups.
Clearly these people are dangerous.
I wonder if she means all Israelis, or just the Jewish ones...
Bad guys who want a stricter immigration policy.
Communism is awesome, it works, and it never hurt anyone. Let's bring it to the UK!
Fighting with the police, then screaming at them that they can't touch me, is like, totally awesome. I'm so glad I layed down in the road instead of moving to the sidewalk so I could tell people how brave I was trying to stop the bad guys.
The bad guys.
