The Daily Star today has a bit of fun and urges its readers to chuck a chapatti at hell-faced "gas chambers were a total lie" idiot Nick Griffin:
After yesterday delighting in the egg-chuckers' assault on the Churchill-dog-headed cyclops of hatred.
That's all very well, but it was revealed this week that BNP voters decided that the Star (along with the Sun) was their paper of choice (thanks to Drivelcast for the tipoff):
One third of them read the Sun or Daily Star as against one in five adults generally; just 6 per cent of BNP voters read the upmarket papers (Times, Telegraph, Guardian etc), which is less than half the national average.
As I've said a million times before, you must wonder what Express and Star owner Richard Desmond, a prominent Jewish businessman, thinks of having so many of his readers supporting someone who doesn't believe in the Holocaust. But then, he shouldn't be surprised that his papers have attracted them. Let's not forget
how the Express decided that every single new job in the country went to a migrant, even though it was quite demonstrably obvious to everyone else in the world - particularly those of us who've had a new job and who aren't migrants, for example - that this was not the case. It wasn't a mistake that Desmond's publications made once, either.
And it wasn't shy about deciding that it didn't want Muslims as readers:
If YOU are a Star reader then YOU aren't a Muslim, quite clearly.
After all that thinly veiled racism from their paper of choice, BNP supporters who take the Star can be forgiven for being a bit confused. After all, the Star told them it was a whites-only paper; the Star said ALL jobs had gone to migrants.
They wanted the BNP fans - and now they've got them. No use trying to scare them off now. Richard Desmond's publications courted the racists, the ideological descendants of those who wanted to wipe out people like him and his family. No point trying to be sorry about that now.
Perhaps a better way to scare off the BNP might be to do front-page leads about how migrants haven't STOLEN ALL OUR JOBS. Or how the BBC doesn't put Muslims before YOU. Maybe the Star should do that...? But I'm not holding my breath.
