Should racist bastard rabid reactionary cuntwads who post on Express Have Your Say messageboards be killed and their heads placed on spikes?
Part two, then, of a look at the Express Have Your Say messageboards. A midden of hatred and prejudice: here, among the slurry of casual racism, hatred of any unorthodox or slightly progressive thinking and wearyingly tedious, not to mention illiterate anti-NuLab 'they tax us! a Government actually has the temerity to tax us! And guess who's paying?!?!?!' digs at Haggis McFriedMarsBar, is the soft underbelly of the Daily Express. Here are the kind of people that would make me delighted to abandon my pacifist principles in a nanosecond if I could push their wilfully ignorant mouth-breathing wastes of carbon into an industrial shredder, feet first so they could see their fate approaching and feel the agonising pain.
I think to understand where I'm coming from you need a taste of the untreated filth that passes for comment in the wacky and wonderful world of Web 2.0. Here, laid bare, is the truth about 'interactivity' and 'citizen journalism'. Here are the things that would get chucked in the bin and covered with vomit if they arrived on the desk of a newspaper letters editor; but because it's the internet, it's somehow all right. As I've said previously, I would be intrigued to find out what the criteria are for getting comments on here (and on the Mail site too). Do you have to be an ignorant cunt? Or does that just help? Do you have to attack Gordy McTunnocksteacake? Or is it just a bonus? Are their rules or standards applied? I'm guessing there are some things which are too strong even for the Express to publish - the sort of thing that would physically kill you if you looked at more than ten words, maybe.
Anyway, I can't say I didn't warn you. Ready? Here's a selection. Just a taste.
Should Britain bring back the death penalty?
Of course we should, and we should bring back the cane in schools. The loony left/bleeding heart liberals have destroyed our society and created a generation of feral individuals who just go on breading. God help the next two or three generations.

ask decent people to pull the lever if hanging is brought back, why don't the Government use a supply of convicted murderers to pull the lever?
Perhaps like a firing squad situation, only a line of levers, where no one would know who actually is the one who kills the person.
That would save the convicted killers from getting a high from another murder. They could then see what will shortly happen to them.

Yes. Yes, I see.
It would be difficult to argue that a man who kills 5 women in a short space of time is sane.
However, I would bring back the death penalty for treason,and so would many others, Brown and Milliband take note.
• Posted by: redwhiteandblue
Wahey! A sly dig at McBottler as well! But what's Miliband done to ire him so much?
Those that live by it should die by it.
Murderers given to the families of the victim.
Rapists and child molesters chemically castrated or better still two building brick and mind your thumbs.
I am in total agreement with bringing back the Birch, Hard Labour and the rope
The Bleeding hearts of this country have held sway for far too long, its time to bring back real deterrents.
• Posted by: Rastus
I feel a bit sick after reading that. But I enjoy the capitalisation of the Birch, for some reason. As if it makes it more important. Not just the birch, but the Birch! See! Ooh it's terrifying me already, I'd better not be antisocial later, knowing the capitalised Birch is coming to get me!
On 'Is our Government lying to us?', a question tacked on to the story about David Miliband admitting torture flights had landed in the (not actually British) territory of Diego Garcia:
The first 25 years of my life Were spent living in a house with smokers, coal fires and smog ! I seem to be surviving OK and feel healthy and very fit for a 52 year old !

Well, with a bit of luck you might die by 53, eh? Sorry! *slaps own wrist* That is naughty of me, he's just a man on the internet.
I hold no torch for this government. However I don't give a damn if they have lied or not, my interest is that we are fighting a war against an enemy without uniform or borders and if they lied to allow an intelligence organisation to gain information for the Wests protection, then so be it.
• Posted by: mombser
Yes, torture is OK if it benefits 'the West' because we're fighting against people who don't have uniforms. Except orange ones when they're being tortured, obviously.
I think it's worth me saying at this point that the Express introduces each one of these HYS questions in a balanced and objective way, viz this on 'has Labour conned Britain?':
A RECORD £31.5billion in stamp duty from hard-pressed home buyers has flown into Government coffers in the last 10 years.
Reaping the rewards of soaring house prices, the Treasury has enjoyed a near eight-fold increase from £830million in 1997/98 to £6.5billion in 2006/07, figures show today.
The levy – a tax on already taxed income paid by everyone who buys a house worth more than £125,000 – is criticised by property experts for forcing first-time buyers out of the market and leading to a shortage of homes for sale as people cannot afford to move.
Government in 'raises tax' shocker! A tax on income already taxed? How evil - next you'll be telling me we pay VAT on everything except essential goods!
Anyway, stoked up by this intro, what do the good Express-fearing folk have to say?
OH YES OUR RIGHT HONOURABLE THIEVING LYING BASTARDS have made it their mission to con Britain out of its sovereignty. They lie to us all the time, they steal our money with every conceivable tax they can think of, they cheat us with their self rewarding payrises and unlimited expenses and give away our passports, NI numbers, NHS, education etc to all and sundry.
On top of all this they are utterly spineless when dealing with Muslim terrorists and communities.
YES, LABOUR HAVE CONNED BRITAIN BIG TIME!
• Posted by: Jac16
Tax=theft. Remember that the next time you expect the fire brigade to turn up when your house is on fire. HOW DARE YOU! But look, here comes the first creep of anti-Muslim sentiment. 'Spineless when dealing with Muslim terrorists and communities.' What have Muslim 'communities' done that's so bad then? Been Muslim? Eaten halal meat? Fasted in November? Prayed a few times? Liked the colour green?
That smiling HAM B.Liar should not be in any position of influence,evermore.
Let him stay home with the mobile letterbox,OMG can you think of a worse punishment than being in proximity to that abomination of womanhood.
The champagne guzzling,human
rights capitalizer,multi million pound house owning,leftie Cherie,how can her commie Father bring himself to visit.
• Posted by: rozipoz
Yes Blair, you HAM! (what??)
OK here we go. The first of the really evil ones. Do we let too many immigrants into Britain? Hmm, I wonder what the response will be?
The intro: "A BRITISH haulage tycoon pulled his lorries out of Europe for the first time in 30 years yesterday, declaring: “Illegal immigrant fines are putting me out of business."
So, we're talking about illegal immigrants here, are we?
Do YOU think we let too many immigrants into Britain? Should we be allowing tens of thousands of illegal immigrants to enter the UK each year?
Hmm, a bit half-and-half really. Should we let people do illegal things? Well, er, I can't possibly see how the people will respond to that. Calmly, and with reason, I'm sure.
ALL LITHUIAN AND POLISH SHOULD BE BANNED FROM ENGLAND THERE TAKING OVER THE POPULATION !

• Posted by: angel702001
Well, you've made kenzieleigh look like Bernard Levin there, angel. 'Send the ones that never work home'. What? Are they taking benefits away from hard-non-working Brits? And as for saying they 'can't speak', well that's a shade on the pot-kettle side my dear. And what are the new rules about Ramadan - that bastards in the Express have to sound off about it? It's getting a bit grubby, isn't it? But there are 250 souls commenting on this thread:

Blimey, that must have been really offensive. It makes me laugh. In for a penny, in for a pound. Let them say whatever they want! Or do you think they'll embarrass you?
We are told that council cost arec rising in all areas, e pay thehighest taxes, in Europe.
Our medical services are overloaded as arecour schools.
Mr McBean Brown and co if you allowmillions of Immigrants to arrive with out any kind of control, you increase the load on services, and increase our carbon footprint.When immigrants arrive they hould be able to support themselves for a minimum of 2 years, this would mean no benifits untill the end of th same period.
No translation services for Immigrants.
Children to be taught English privatly prior to starting school.
A medical services to be paid for in cash prior to doctors visit.
Do not allow more than 1 we to muslims, ban the burkaand vail, and ban the any second, third or 4th wives from entering the UK.
if we impose these rules immigration woild reduce immediatlry.
• Posted by: mike1951
Jesus wept, was there a single word in there with the correct spelling? And he's demanding that immigrants get taught English? How about you for a start, Mike?
'Nofreespeechhere' is an amazing character, who seems to actually take on the foaming racists. They come back at that post with:
immigrants have no recourse to public funds until the become residents (minimum of three years and passing of the life in the uk test). that rule is osmewhat different for eu member states, but certianly does apply for overseas immigrants.
• Posted by: nofreespeechhere
Well I guess this person feels that unless they try and wade in, no-one will put a dissenting voice. Which is admirable. But 'nofree' is fighting a Rourke's Drift of a battle (I'm sure a lot of the commenters love watching Zulu) against a tide of rampaging frothing nutcases:
Jesus warned that God would send a powerful delusion to lead people into believing what is false. ie. People who dont follow Moses and the Prophets.
Islam is that powerful delusion!!!
Cheers, GeoffD! I love god-squad folk who slag off other religions as 'delusions'. But this chap also says:
ISLAM has the same goals as Hitler did:-
(1) take over the world
(2) kill all the Jews
And he also says:
So the steps are:-
(1) ban immigration of all muslims
(2) close mosques till Saudi Arabia, Iran etc. allow Christian churches to operate there
(3) deport all muslims who protest
(4) impose a "muslim tax" on all muslims
Doing this will give the UK equality with Sharia law countries and ease immigration concerns.

Ugh. Here's another revealing post from 'MarriedWhiteMale':
I don't buy a newspaper everyday, although I pick up the headlines on TV and online, so I am reasonably well informed on what's happening around the world. Once a week I have a quick flick through the Saturday Express and the trends are there to be seen. The general themes running through modern England are based on chaos and anarchy , the Government have lost control of our borders, inner city areas have become ghettos, more and more money is being thrown at these issues and the average working guy , like myself, is picking up the bill.
Hmm. So you get your news from the Express. And he also says:
The good ol' boys and girls of England are fed up with having to deal with the lawless, feckless and vulgarness of the English underclasses, have run out of patience with the ungrateful sponging attitude of the 'Refugee' families who are sucking the feel good factor out of living in England .
Build more prisons , get the scum off the streets. Build more asylum centres get the scum off the streets. Get more police on the streets stop the remaining scum from committing crime. Remove undesirable people from our society, get control of the gangs
Asylym seekers are 'scum'. Remember, this man's newspaper of choice is the Express.
**COMMENT REMOVED AND USER BANNED**
**Please do not post racist comments or swear words on our forums...or you WILL be banned.**
• Posted by: BOOBYGIRL
Yeah, that's right. Don't post racist comments... well, unless you call asylum-seekers 'scum' or say that Muslims want to kill all Christians and take over the world. That's not racist is it?
We are only a small island, if we let many more in, we won't have to worry about global warming, and the sea's rising, because we will SINK.
WE ARE THE LAUGHING STOCK OF EUROPE AND THE WORLD
• Posted by: Mr_Ricky
What in the name of...? Is he being serious or not? I can't tell any more. My brain's turning into jelly.
Can I go to Poland, or any other country in the EU, and get the same deal, as all the parasites who come here get.
It's not exactly" rocket science", to see what the problem is, is it????
We have tried everything, and everyone else, all to no avail. Now is the time to give the BNP a chance.
As things are at this moment. The only way is up!!!!! Let's be brave. THIS IS ENGLAND.
• Posted by: nails
The first mention of the BNP here. But it isn't the last, you'll be utterly unsurprised to hear. Calling Poles parasites? Nope, that's not racist! And can you go there and get the same deal? Yes, you can. Can you speak Polish? No, didn't think so.
Most of the vitriol on message boards such as this one is directed at Pakistani and Bangladeshi muslim immigrants. Every piece of evidence suggests that this group is the most economically inactive and most welfare dependant group in the country. It appears that many of them expect us to cater for their needs and a significant proportion of them appear to hate our way of life, and want to replace our system with sharia law.islam, and our way of life are incompatible, and more people are waking up to that obvious fact every day.
• Posted by: urban
Again, not seen as 'racist' by the Express moderators. Where are these figures from? I have a fair guess which organisation would be coming out with that kind of evidence... can you? 'Urban', by the way, says: "None of the papers believe in free speech, however The Express comes closest". True freedom?
There is only one union standing up for the rights of British workers - Solidarity.
• Posted by: osuswawar
That's the trade union set up by the BNP, isn't it? Funny, you didn't mention that anywhere in the post.
At least the BNP are fighting for the rights of the indigenous Briton. The Christian population may be glad of that protection when Islam strikes.
So might many of us, especially the 50% female population that will lose all rights if Islam spreads its menacing blanket over this land.
• Posted by: abuela
Yuck. There's the 'indigenous Briton' bullshit, smeared all over the page like a dirty protest.
Next, a 'Dylan' has his post removed and others complain about the taking-away of his 'free speech'. Further down, 'Dylan' says:
If you want real, genuine, intelligent and informed debate, the BNP is your only hope.
Fucking hell. By the way, there's a 'Dylan' who posts regularly on the BNP messageboard as well; wonder if they're the same? Nothing wrong with that, obviously, I'm just trying to work out the Express readership, that's all. I wonder how many advertisers are happy that their products are placed in an environment where such hostile comments are? Just a little thought. On this page are adverts for NHS Stop Smoking, DVD Rental, Orange phones, Lidl supermarkets, Beauty Products Direct and Alex Curran products. Do they care or are they just after the click-throughs? Happy if these are the people buying your products? Once again, I have to wonder what Richard and Judy think about working for the Express - after all, they were once journalists. How does that sit with the 'journalism' they see in the paper they write for? Or don't they care?
I too have no problem with INDIVIDUALS who express views. But I do have a problem with ideologies which are not compatible with British interests, and the non-British birth rates which will soon see my kinsfolk out voted and this Nation turned into an Arab State.
Richard and Judy, are you reading this? Is this all right with you? These are your readers - do you like them?
After 5cc points out the glaring errors in Express stories, 'Defiant', an especially obnoxious cunt, weighs in with:
Why do a small minority (the liberel/left) feel the need to push their crap on sites they know hate everything they stand for ? This in itself is a reason to vote BNP
• Posted by: Defiant
And there you have it, my friends. 'Sites they know hate everything they stand for'. That's 'Defiant''s view on the Express. And the fact that one person takes an opposing view on a messageboard means that we must vote BNP. For someone called Defiant, by the way, he's pretty upset by people like 5cc turning up on what he must consider to be his messageboard and putting alternative views - asking the mods to ban someone just because they don't say exactly what he wants.
Still happy with those cheques, Richard and Judy? Are you? Really? Don't they make you just the tiniest bit sad? Or maybe you agree with these commenters?
Ugh. Well, this is just one thread and I appear to have got bogged down in it, but you get the general idea. I just want to leave you for now with this beautifully crafted post. Is it a wind-up? Is it real? You be the judge.
DOES JUDAS JOCK MCBROWN LET TOO MANY IMMIGRANTS STAY IN BRITAIN?
The answer is a resounding YES YES YES.
We need to clear out at least 20,000,000 immigrant pestilence from this little island for the benefit of every indigenous person dwelling here. There are far too many of them and their entire weight is sinking us and that is why we have this dreadful flooding, global warming is just another commi Judas Jock scam to part us from the last bit of cash which we have left.
How is it that EVERY person whom I converse with about this Judas Jock immigration influx scam agrees with me that there are far too many here yet he will not properly debate our concerns?
Why do we allow Judas Jock the foreigner to give £BILLIONS of OUR money away to strangers whom have never contributed one single penny into OUR country.
The Pakistani, Indian, Polish immigrants and many others send £BILLIONS out of this country 'back home' as they call it, no benefit to this country whatsoever.
I wish that whilst empty and no-one is killed or injured that the Chunnel would collapse and flood so it could never be re-opened.
These immigrants are the ones whom are bankrupting this tiny sad island and they will eventually be its total downfall with rivers of blood widespread.
I know that I speak for the mass Millions in this country who do not want them at any price.
It will not be long before Judas Jock McBrown gives his blessing to Bradford or somewhere similar to have their own SHARIA LAW in OUR COUNTRY.
Will the last white man to leave please put out the light.
Great Britain forever, England and Saint George.
A REVOLUTION IS COMING, BE READY.
It is so so easy to stop them coming into this country uninvited if you are not a dirty yellow commi coward, are you listening.
