Barnes at rest.
Barnes in full flow.
THE BOY WHO CRIED WOLF
If Nationalists are to triumph over the System of lies and illusion that currently hold sway over us then we can only win through adherence to the truth, to the facts. Anything else is unethical and sells us back into the arms of the very same System that is attempting to control us, and it also risks alienating the public as well as our supporters if our claims are found to be lies. British Nationalists have had enough of being lied to and manipulated for financial reasons. We do not want to be lied to, be it for ego or any hidden agenda.
In a recent blog, former Griffinite stooge, Lee Barnes, accuses Sean Hadley of possessing ‘zombie characteristics’. This is a rather peculiar claim from Lee Barnes as Sean (of Griffin Watch) has never been a Griffinite and in fact was one of the earliest BNP activists to back out and attempt to effect change, on account of what he saw with Nick Griffin. Lee Barnes, on the other hand, supported, advised and promoted Nick Griffin all the way until very recently, resigning the day before close of nominations for the recent BNP leadership challenge. An opportunist, Barnes soon allied himself with the Reform Group and within a few months, together with some of the Reform Group, had created a new party – the British Freedom Party.
As Nationalists we need to temper our claims to the public, particularly when we expect other Nationalists to act on those claims. Lee Barnes has a long record of often aggressive and hostile claims, sometimes abusive and foul-mouthed, which have sometimes been based on little or no evidence. This does not give Nationalists a good reputation.
For example, on 10th January 2010 a planned demonstration by the Islamic extremist Choudary and his now-banned organisation, Islam4UK, had threatened to march through the Wiltshire town of Wootten Bassett, a place publicly associated with the arrival of dead servicemen and women that have been flown in through the nearby RAF base.
Nationalists were galvanised in anger and determination to oppose this planned demonstration by Islam4UK and members of the EDL and NF did actually arrive at the town to ensure that there was opposition to meet them. Even arch-opportunist Nick Griffin saw a media opportunity to jump on board the media train by promising that he would personally stand in the way of the Islam4UK march. Naturally, the serial liar and coward Griffin was nowhere to be seen on the day. Even Barnes, an armchair revolutionary, was driven to declare the following when the media and assorted liberals and UAF attempted to persuade people from not attending the counter-demonstration:
“I had no intention of attending WB to oppose the Islamists if they turned up at any time, but I will now.”
He never did attend.
The event never occurred because Choudary and Islam4UK never materialised at Wootten Bassett. But on 11th January Barnes’ conspiracy theories went into overdrive when he announced that:
“There is at the moment a massive police and media plan to hide the truth about what occurred at Wootton Bassett yesterday.
The media are all following the exact same spin line as each other as regards the truth about yesterday’s events and I think I know why.
I believe that the authorities had given Choudary unofficial permission to hold a static demonstration in the town yesterday.”
He claimed that because of the opposition at the town, Choudary and his Islamic protestors were turned back because of public order fears.
He went on to justifiably claim that:
“An unofficial demonstration requires no express police or council permission so therefore the police, government and most important the local council would not have been attacked for giving him formal permission to hold a march if a static demonstration had gone ahead.”
However, he then went on to overstate his case and made the extraordinary claim that:
“If they had given permission for Choudary and his rats to hold a formal march through the town then the whole country would have gone ballistic.
If they had refused Choudary then they would have been labelled ‘racist’ etc etc by the Islamist lobby and Liberal legal groups that infest British society and sued.
Therefore I believe a mutually satisfactory conclusion was reached.
Choudary and his mob were given the nod that they would be allowed to walk through the town on a quiet Sunday afternoon, hold their unofficial static demonstration and then the police would have quickly escorted them from the area.”
“We know that Choudary was in the town yesterday.
We know that coach loads of Islam4UK were stopped on their way into the town after the demonstration began.
We know that Choudary was arrested as he still wanted to assemble in the town even though the plan had been revealed and that he was probably threatened with arrest if he continued the demonstration as public order would have been affected”
In fact we do not know any of this as both media reports and individuals on the scene (including members of the local Wiltshire National Front) state that Choudary was not present and that there is no evidence to claim that the “coach loads” of Islam4UK were ever turned away from Wootten Bassett. These wild assertions exist only in the feverish mind of Lee Barnes himself.
Barnes has simply seen a conspiracy to allow the Islamic militants to hold a static protest by the police on the basis of the use of the words ‘formal’ and ‘informal’ by press releases by the local police. Barnes’ conspiracy theory was based on his idea that:
“I believe the plan was to allow Choudary and his scum to assemble in the town and then the police would have led them back to the coaches. The statement that in the event of public order problems the police can prevent a static demonstration has been inserted into the statement as a way to protect the police in the event that Islam4UK try and sue them for stopping their planned static demonstration”
We know that the authorities cannot be trusted and that they have another agenda. But the fact that Choudary and his Islam4UK protestors failed to march through the town was testament to the Nationalist counter-demonstrations that had been threatened. This does not take away their achievement and their patriotic actions. But Barnes does them no favours when he paints a conspiracy to somehow deprive the counter-protestors of their victory by alleging some sort of a conspiracy when there is no evidence to support one.
Barnes made the claim on his blog that:
“We will now be issuing a formal Freedom Of Information Request to Wiltshire Police to ascertain whether ;
1) Any Islam4UK demonstrators were stopped on their way to the town
2) How many were arrested
3) Whether the police stopped any coaches in Wooton Bassett”
It is odd that since that claim was published on his blog in January 2010 there has been no update to show exactly what the official response to his Freedom of Information requests were. Clearly they failed to provide him with any evidence to support his wild conspiracy theory.
Barnes also claimed:
“Do you honestly think the government would have wanted Nick Griffin and BNP MEP’s being filmed being arrested for trying to block the march !
The publicity would have been HUGE FOR THE BNP, therefore a quick demonstration would have suited them just fine.”
Surely the answer would be an affirmative! Since we already know that Nick Griffin has already done a very good job at wrecking the BNP and that the State is protecting him, having him arrested at any counter-demonstration would have served their purposes well as it would have given Griffin huge kudos amongst the rank-and-file of the BNP and helped to solidify his position as leader. But then Barnes could not see this as he was still a stooge for Griffin and remained so for some 8 months until he decided to resign. Barnes would not allow himself to see through the lies and corruption of Griffin, and the immense damage that he had done – and was doing – to the BNP. Barnes’ failure to stand up against Griffin and to resign earlier has left him with zero reputation. His judgement is appallingly bad and since he carries such baggage to his new party, then that new party is surely damaged also.
Griffin Watch also put in a Freedom of Information (FOIA) request regarding the events at Wootten Bassett and in a reply dated 6 July 2010 the Wiltshire Police wrote back to verify that there was no evidence that either Choudary or Islam4UK were in Wootten Bassett or outside, nor that a static protest had been staged or approval given, and also that there was no evidence to state how many members of Islam4UK had been arrested.
So we can see that making wild accusations on the absence of evidence can only lead to ridicule and the certainty that future strategies are compromised by its reliance on false information and exaggerated claims. One should never believe in ones own propaganda as that can only lead to disaster. A clear strategy can only be made on the basis of facts and logic, not fallacies and imagination.
A more recent illustration of hysteria and the failure to engage reason before emotion is found in his blog dated 25 October 2010
In this he discusses how the housing benefits cuts are the prelude to ethnic cleansing in London. Again, these are exaggerated claims that serve only to reinforce hysteria:
“The social cleansing of the poor from London serves two purposes, one it will clear new homes for immigrants to take and secondly it will destroy existing communities which are mainly white working class and ensure that they cannot resist the immigration take over of their estates and areas.”
The problem with this sort of political hyperbole is that it is wrong on several accounts: such ‘social cleansing’ will affect everyone who is dependent on benefits to help in paying their housing costs, whatever their race or ethnicity or religion. Both poorer whites and poorer immigrants will be forced out from the more expensive central London neighbourhoods to cheaper, more affordable, neighbourhoods in the outer regions of London, similar to how the social housing in Paris is run.
Barnes’ hysteria is similar to the hysteria of the Marxists who are screaming out against the alleged injustices of the scheme. Barnes tends to see through the spectacles of class division and conflict, even coining the more bizarrely and naïve term ‘Nationalist Class War’ in one of the many ironies and idiotic takes he has made in his blogs. As a national community of indigenous peoples we rise above class divisions and attempt to construct a meritocracy based on merit and opportunity, not class hatred.
Barnes seems to be unaware that many of those who can be regarded as ‘middle class’ are also suffering from job cuts, low incomes and high rents in London, and are not immune from the economic pressures that are affecting the poor. In fact, the unemployed are to a greater extent more protected from some of the pressures that face those who are working but are on middle incomes.
Since Barnes has seemingly joined in with the screaming hysteria of the Left and the liberals it is wise to actually check what the real effects of the housing cuts will be.
It is the greed of private landlords that have caused this situation. It is expected that they will cover the shortfall in benefits by making a reduction in their rents. This is the real scandal. It is not necessarily the justified cuts as this country lies in debt and under-investment. Big businesses can rely on benefits to subsidise their employee’s low wages as well as private landlords charging extortionate rents. Why should the taxpayer have to make up the shortfall through welfare payments?
Besides, in London the majority of Londoners are not on benefits and will not be ‘socially cleansed’. Many London workers are forced to live in the suburbs due to high rents and house prices. In the more central districts poorer families can sometimes commandeer larger houses that most ordinary white Londoners can ill-afford. I do not see that as fair. What has existed is an appalling injustice which has created real inequalities in the system, paid for by the taxpayer. I do not want to see people driven out of their homes but the rents in London are astronomical and are both unsustainable and unequal. Landlords must be forced to bring their rents down and the iniquitous housing bubble must be burst.
This is the result of a decade of Labour government shambles and class warfare and social engineering. Some measure of sanity and control needs to be brought into this situation.
Barnes’ Marxist perceptions may make him a temporary ally with the likes of liberal commentators like Polly Toynbee but he must surely understand that we cannot afford to house those whose accommodation costs more than which no middle manager or junior banker could afford.
We cannot afford to support such social costs as this time in our history.
The effects will, contrary to what Barnes claims, actually fall on the Muslims who have larger families than the indigenous whites. Previously, if you have four, five or six children you would be allocated more generous accommodation or larger private rental subsidies. That usually means Muslim families. It is therefore hoped that this welfare transformation will perhaps assist in providing large Muslim families an incentive to cut their procreation and give the indigenous white families some space to ensure that the ‘population war’ is slowed down to some extent.
Besides, Britain does not want a dependency culture propagated by the Leftist BBC voice of Marxist hysteria. We want people to accept responsibility for their personal choices and to begin the task of becoming less dependent upon the State. A people dependent upon the State for either employment or benefits are a people that is broken, spiritually and morally bankrupt and a people that are wedded to a socially totalitarian State. As Nationalists we need to understand this – and unlike some of our Nationalist ideologists we need to escape from that Marxist-poisoned mindset of class warfare.
And when Nationalists cry out for action then people will be more likely to listen because they know that we are telling the truth.
Meanwhile, real Nationalists actually do put in F.O.I.A. requests:
The proof of the pudding, has always been in the eating, as the saying goes.
