A large and growing number of us are aware of the institutional racism of the 'mainstream' media, as an arm of the Establishment, against the English. That hostility extends to any political party that dares to speak out in defence of the English and the other indigenous peoples of the United Kingdom, such as the British National Party.
The Establishment-orchestrated attacks on the BNP naturally intensify as polling day approaches. Every intelligent British nationalist understands this.
What we find difficult to understand, though, is why there is no fightback by the party leadership. Simon Darby has briefly alluded, on his blog today, to the prosecutions of Michael Coleman and Dean Lowther, our sole candidate in Lincoln. But look at the main party web site and you will look in vain for any mention of this political persecution of our members by the Establishment.
Could it be because this persecution of the party's grass roots does not affect Griffin personally? And could it also be because Griffin erroneously believes that mounting a robust campaign, in defence of the activists concerned, might harm the 'immigrant friendly' image of the party that he is trying to project? As so often in the past, Griffin's contemptible moral cowardice has put the BNP on the back foot, when it ought to be on the offensive. Clearly, Griffin does not have a clue about how to lead a political party, as opposed to Britain's fastest shrinking self-appreciation society.
As Griffin sees it, Coleman and Lowther are expendable, along with everyone else, bar himself and the members of his extended family. Griffin is now quite useless and indeed worse than useless to nationalism.
Lest there be any doubt: incitement to racial hatred is not a criminal offence, notwithstanding what any number of journalists, jurists and other Establishment hirelings, may claim to the contrary. The reason it is not a crime is that it is a self-evident absurdity that incitement to a state of mind, namely hatred, should be an offence, when being in that state of mind in itself is not an offence.
Stoke-on-Trent BNP leader Michael Coleman on race charge
Saturday, 14 April, 2012
BNP leader Michael Coleman has appeared in court on 'racism' charges.
The former councillor will go on trial accused of causing racial harassment over a seven-month period.
It is understood the allegations relate to comments made on the defendant's website.
The 45-year-old lost his Meir North seat on Stoke-on-Trent City Council in last May's elections.
But Coleman remains the controversial party's chief organiser in the city and presented an award to Stoke-on-Trent's BNP activist of the year during a Christmas party last December.
The BNP today refused to confirm whether Coleman's party membership had been suspended.
Asked about Coleman's court appearance, BNP national spokesman Simon Darby said: "I'm not interested." [Emphasis mine].
Coleman, of Caverswall Road, Weston Coyney, denied two charges of [causing] racially or religiously aggravated harassment, alarm or distress, by words or writing, between August 2011 and March 2012, when he appeared at North Staffordshire Magistrates' Court. He requested a crown court trial.
BNP activist and former city councillor Steve Batkin, of Bentilee, said the party ordinarily suspends members pending the outcome of legal proceedings. [Why hasn't the national organizer, Adam Walker, been suspended, then?]
He said: "I haven't discussed the situation with Michael Coleman.
"He has carried on with things like leafleting, but to be honest there has been a lot of demoralization in the local party ever since the council group leader, Alby Walker left."
The BNP had nine seats in 2008/09 and was briefly the second biggest group on the council, earning Stoke-on-Trent the dubious title of the far right [sic] party's 'jewel in the crown' from national party chairman Nick Griffin MEP.
Its prominence in the city sparked national attention and the party twice used the city as a base for launching nationwide manifestos.
But numbers in the council chamber dwindled to five before last year's all-out elections, where it fielded just 10 candidates and won no seats.
Coleman picked up just 299 votes last May as he lost out to Labour's Ruth Rosenau.
Coleman's case will be committed to Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court on May 24.
He was unavailable for comment yesterday.
