Whilst you're on the subject of kids being raped in Britain did you see the 15 year old girl who was recently raped by an 'Asian' man in Birmingham?

After the ordeal she staggered outside and flagged down a car for help - and another 'Asian' man who stopped then raped her again.

Do not know what your quote has to do with the topic of this thread but while we are off topic it seems Australians are the ones that the ladies should make strenuous efforts to avoid one in 10 female university students in Australia had been sexually assaulted in the past two years

Meanwhile the keen minds and razor sharp intellects of the Norwegian far right are proposing a ban on empty bus seats.

Re: All about the alt-right (in the wake of anti-Muslim shooting)

Interesting piece about a psychological study of alt-right volunteers.

https://www.vox.com/platform/amp/sci...logy-alt-right

Quote:
Alt-righters in the survey scored higher on social dominance orientation (the preference that society maintains social order), right-wing authoritarianism (a preference for strong rulers), and somewhat higher levels of the “dark triad” of personality traits (psychopathy, Machiavellianism, and narcissism.)

at least the article was forthcoming:

"The results, which were released on August 9, are just in working paper form, and have yet to be peer-reviewed or published in an academic journal."
But then goes on to say, "So while it is a preliminary assessment, it validates some common perceptions of the alt-right with data." (underlines are mine)


my read: We found some data that seems to support current perceptions about this group, so we will just throw it out there and call it science.


Another clue: "In April, Forscher and Kteily got a sample of 447 self-identified alt-righters" which might just skew the results a smidge...

I don't really know if the findings are correct or not (not surprised however), but to me, its just more of the same lazy science/journalism as this:

I can think of better places to take a nap

Quote:
A man who travelled 470 miles to take part in the Dover riots...fell asleep during his sentencing hearing!

Right-winger Kevin Kennedy journeyed from his home in Edinburgh to take part in demonstrations in support of lorry drivers.

The father-of three, who hasn’t worked since 1989 due to an industrial accident on his back, threw a piece of wood, a rock and another missile during the street battles in January of last year.
He got off lightly, just 12 months suspended and a 4 month curfew.

EDL Demo in Chelmsford called off after only 2 of the clowns turn up.

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-essex-41371829

To be fair there's a large part of the EDL membership in jail at the moment (around 70) following the Dover riot. Obviously they couldn't make it.

The real threat to security in Europe is radical far-left groups like ANTIFA and Islamic extremists. Traditional far-right groups don't seem to have the organization or capacity to really pose much of a threat. (Also summarized in the current security report for Switzerland.)

Quote:
Since April 2016, i.e. since the closure of the so-called Balkan route and the conclusion of the agreement between the EU and Turkey, last year's peak in migration movements to Europe has passed, but the pressure remains high. The potential for a crisis to develop remains, and therefore also the possibility that the security aspects of migration will be thrown into sharper relief. This applies firstly to terrorism carried out by perpetrators who reached Europe in this way and secondly to violent extremism. While right-wing extremists in Switzerland have thus far not, as has happened elsewhere in Europe, taken violent action against asylum-seekers or service providers working in the asylum field, left-wing extremists have made migration one of their core issues and have also taken violent action in this regard. This issue is the one most likely to cause an escalation of the generally calm situation as regards violent extremism - the potential for violence remains.

Head of the proscribed National Action group charged with encouragement to commit murder. The alleged target was West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper. All in all 6 people have been charged.

Twitter on the front line of combating far-right views by removing their blue tick verified status. That'll work.

Britain First supporter gets wellied, drives van at curry house owner. A fine person according to Donald Trump.

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/...er-court-hears

Quote:
He was heard to say: “I’m going to kill a Muslim. I’m doing it for Britain. This is how I’m going to help the country. You people cannot do anything.”

The Old Bailey heard that the Polish-born window fitter then used his white van as a weapon against Kamal Ahmed and mounted the pavement twice. He was driving at 5mph and was in effect trying to pin Ahmed against the front of the restaurant window, which smashed.

The prosecutor Denis Barry said: “Mr Zakrocki had plainly, during the course of that afternoon, had far too much to drink. During the course of that evening he assaulted his wife, drove off in his work vehicle, insulted a series of passers-by and then drove his vehicle at the owner of a curry house, breaking the window of the curry house.
Basically pissed up, wife beating Polish migrant hates Muslims. How's that diverse, tolerant society working out?

They’re white not brown so the Biffers don’t have a problem with them. Anyway, as we saw recently, there is a strong far-right presence in Poland. Like these 3 charmers, recruited by a group of knuckledraggers called North West Infidels to take part in a ruck in Liverpool.

http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/...d-13962683.amp

They’re now doing between 18 months and 2 years.

Are "brown" (your word, not mine btw) immigrants always tolerant with the others?

I remember seeing interviews with non-white immigrants in the UK and they seemed to really hate EU, Eastern European immigrants in general and to want an urgent Brexit.

So....let's use a mirror. We might not like what we find there.

Now, of course, we can blame Farage and the likes - they really thrive on "divide et impera", creating tensions between different immigrant groups is their specialty.
