STAND UP TO UKIP – STAND UP TO THE SWP

Well from BATH to SWANSEA protests against Farage are going well. But hold hard what’s this I see before me. It is no less than STAND UP TO UKIP who now appear to be taking over the protests with some nifty graphics. So before we allow them to run a show which is running ok as it is – you might ask – who are STAND UP TO UKIP? well HERE THEY ARE:

swpukip

Well those involved do far are the SWP/SEARCHLIGHT/UAF………….THE PLACARDS DONT HAVE SOCIALIST WORKER ON TOP ANYMORE………..this is a quiet operation designed for them to work their way back from the disastrous year they have had by stealth. No names on placards but the lollipop placards are there to be handed to you to carry. It’s a classic SWP popular front……..another anti-nazi league and yes Weymann is on the case.

COMRADES WE DON’T NEED THE SWP TO SHOW US HOW TO STAND UP TO UKIP

    Word is that every time these turn up to confront UKIP Farage he wins a few thousand more votes. Probably the same if Class War turn up shouting Wanker. People are smart; they will vote UKIP because it is upsetting the other parties, and face it, the others do come across as a closed up bunch of college lefties. If you want to take on UKIP you have to give people some decent arguments, ‘cos UKIP have overcome the accusation that they are racists. Start by stressing that people have no power over their lives, and see how that goes. You know, a bit of popular anarchism, not the Satinist/Maoid shit you have been doling out.

      ” ‘cos UKIP have overcome the accusation that they are racists”

      They’ve obviously convinced you so well done for being a gullible, naïve ‘college righty’.

      I don’t see why it has to be a straight choice between chucking eggs at their leaders and countering their arguments.

      We need to do both!

    No SWP livery on the leaflets? The sneaky bastards. Now the victims won’t even know who they’re being sexually abused by.

    Those placards *do* say Socialist Worker on though…

    My god, the swp members in that picture look absolutely terrifying. My view is they should all be imprisoned for trying to organise a campaign to stop ukip.
    And god help us if its ‘another anti-nazi league’ like the article says. I mean, that would be really terrible if the Stand Up to UKIP campaign emulated the ANL in successfully destroying the NF (or UKIP in this case).
    God, these swp members have no shame. Why can’t they all just stop organising important political campaigns and become middle class champaigne socialists or join the anarcho-bourgeoisie like the rest of us??!!!

    • an anarky

      nice one.

    • “I mean, that would be really terrible if the Stand Up to UKIP campaign emulated the ANL in successfully destroying the NF (or UKIP in this case)” – Like when the ANL disbanded in the early 80’s and didn’t opportunistically reform until the early 90’s on the back of a tragic wave of racist murders. No, that was left to other anti-fascists because for at least 10 years (When the street level violence from the right was intensified and the ANL did not exist as they felt the issue to be over with) they were the ones fighting the BNP, British Movement, NF (Which the ANL did not destroy as they still exist) etc. and the ANL weren’t! Besides, ANL Mark 1 at the grassroots was a very different affair to that of the ANL Mark 2.

      “middle class champaigne socialists” – You just quite easily described the SWP Central Committee there😉

      • ***Edit***

        No, the organising and opposition was left to other anti-fascists because for at least 10 years (When the street level violence from the right was intensified and the ANL did not exist as they felt the issue to be over with) they were the ones fighting the BNP, British Movement, NF (Which the ANL did not destroy as they still exist) etc. and the ANL weren’t!

    not sure they are an SWP front… anyway, we’re fighting UKIP and we are certainly not SWPers… just hope loads of others are too!

  6. I am a UKIP member and have no problem with peaceful protest, it is, after all, the right of every person to protest in a peaceful, respectful way. But the rabble who showed up at Nigel Farage’s Swansea visit were shouting obscenities and threatening trouble. We will confront this kind of fascism with polite indifference and carry on our lawful activities. We are not racists, even if the media is concentrating the public’s mind on a few rotten apples in our barrel. You can’t tell me that this sort of thing doesn’t happen in the other parties ~ it just doesn’t get highlighted by an Establishment media hell bent on trying to discredit us. UKIP all the way!

    • gtr

      If people are shouting abuse at getting angry at you, it’s probably because your entire political strategy is built on scapegoating the easiest and most vulnerable targets.

      Your activities may be “lawful” but they lead directly to violent hate-crime against migrants, disabled people etc by pretending they are the cause of our problems instead of having the guts to face the real enemy – the rich and powerful.

      You may not be a racist, and some of your fellow UKIPers may not be either, but the messages you are putting out fuel racism and are fuelled by it.

      UKIP’s hands are drenched in blood and no amount of “lawfulness” or “polite indifference” will let you hide the fact indefinitely. Expect people to get a lot angrier unless you rethink your politics.

      And yeah, it should go without saying that the mainstream parties are also just as complicit in the same kind of scapegoating, so pretending UKIP are some kind of anomaly in this rotten racist system is bullshit too. UKIP just have the gall to push the bullshit a small step further and be more explicit in their bullying of minorities.

      Sorry, but UKIP aren’t anti-Establishment. They support capitalism, the state, inequality & the ruling class. What’s anti-Establishment about that?

    • Keith

      Is the anti-elitist elitist being super-elitist in a post-ironic sort of way? Farage & co are just another branch of the enemy. It’s no joke; they wash their hands in blood daily. Out Damned Stain.

    There are former members on the BNP in UKIP, former members of the BNP in the Tory Party, former members of the Communist Party in the Labour Party and on it goes. I don’t know whether communists or fascists have the highest body count of working class people or the worst record on racism, but it seems that the arguments against UKIP are not working.
    To Idev and JC. It happens to be true that UKIP have overcome the overplayed race/fascist card. When the Sun, Independent, Guardian, Mirror, Mail, Telegraph, Evening Standard, BBC, Channel 4, David Cameron Clegg and Milliband all agree that UKIP alone is racist – and not examine their own backyards – it is time to start thinking and not label assholes like me.. Come the election – I am definitely voting for the Elvis Loves Dogs Party. They oppose the bedroom tax, and want reduced veterinary fees. Better still, they really are outside the Westminster bubble.

    The problem you all have is that if they get even a half of the vote that is being predicted for them they will have totally eclipsed the far left.

  9. Richard

    UKIP are to the tories what the tea party are to the Republicans. However they are a mixed bag of xenophobes, middle and working class as opposed to preppy rich American racists. After registering moderate Euro election success, they will be even more concertedly attacked by the corporate media, the same people who run Labore and Tory central offices -the Oxbridge mafia. They will be non-existent in 4-5 years time.
