Regular readers of this blog will have become used to BNP apologists leaving comments to the effect that their party members are simply misunderstood "ordinary Joes". They don't have an extreme bone in their body, and mean no harm to anyone. At least, not anyone white that is.
Those who've actually come into contact with BNP activists will of course know differently. To see where the twisted logic of race hate leads, can I recommend this piece on the excellent Lancaster Unity site about a prominent Cleveland BNP activist. As the introduction to the piece notes, "BNP activist and speaker Alan O’Reilly says Catholics will be deported under a BNP government; declares Catholics to be the enemies of Britain and Christianity; believes Islam, the European Union and eastern European immigration are Catholic plots to destroy Britain; and, that Catholicism was behind communism, World War I & II and the Nazi regime".
So next time the BNP suggest that their views are about as offensive as your dear old nan, remind them of the wacko, but distinctly dangerous Mr O'Reilly.
