Here's some great stuff I've found, read and digested over the past few hours.
David Turner's Procrastination Station - a nice bit of thoughtful origami sent off to BNP headquarters to try and encourage them to be less hateful. I particularly enjoyed: "Have some cake. I find I always hate less after some cake". Well, who doesn't?
Staying with the BNP, Sarah Ditum has wrapped up her recent blog posts over at Liberal Conspiracy regarding the kid-glove treatment of the BNP by lazy or misguidedly 'objective' journalists. Compare and contrast the powder-puff treatment of racists in some local papers, if you will, with the Manchester Evening News, which is actually telling its readers the truth. It just goes to show that the 'Oooh no, we've got to be objective and nice to everyone' attitude is a smokescreen - I'm not saying it's a smokescreen for BNP sympathies because I'm sure that's not the case, but it's a smokescreen for a lack of courage, knowledge, conviction and a fear of getting a few angry letters from racists, who for some reason editors don't like upsetting.
Harry's Place also has a rather excellent piece showing why Nick Griffin's attempts to portray himself as a nice, mainstream figure are a pack of lies, as well as exposing why the World War 2 sentiments of the BNP leaflets are contradicted by BNP members' support for the Nazis. We kind of knew that, didn't we? But it's good to see the evidence - which, fair's fair, was collected by the Daily Mail. A shame, then, that the paper's readers appear to be backing the BNP, but never mind.
