Britain First hijack Rotherham vintage event

Far-right hate group Britain First hijacked a vintage event in Rotherham town centre to campaign and give out newspapers.

A ‘vintage hop’ event was taking place in Rotherham town centre today, an event for all the family and featured musical entertainment on a stage and dances.

Britain First decided to set up base around the stage area and hand out their newspapers. Deputy leader Jayda Fransen even said in a video uploaded by Britain First that they were “pleased to be part of it”.

But Britain First were campaigning under the noses of the event organisers and the Council. They did not take part in the event in any way, they just used it to further their cause.

Note: The Britain First newspaper once shared ISIS propaganda and Britain First passed it off as truth to readers.

Lionheart GB lunatics incite hate with false story

Far-right group Britain First is very closely affiliated to groups such as the Knights Templar International and Lionheart GB.

Yesterday, we documented how Britain First shared a false story from the Daily Express, who suggested 1.5 million British Muslims support terror group ISIS based on an inaccurate poll from the Mirror.

It was untrue, and the Daily Express removed the story from its site.

Lionheart GB, accused by many of being run by Britain First itself, also joined in sharing this story. However, the group said it all points to a ‘coming Civil War!’...

...even though the story was false.

As you can see, Lionheart GB is purposefully inflaming tensions in Britain.

This also strangely ties in with what HOPE Not Hate wrote about Britain First. It said that the party has “doomsday prophesy where it believes civilization will end in bloodshed between Christians and Muslims. To this end, the party has stepped up its efforts to antagonised Muslim groups.”

Britain First plan to go to Rotherham, prepare to cough up taxpayers

[Guest post]

Britain First plan on marching in Rotherham, and no-one wants these thugs to come. But taxpayers be warned! You will probably be having to pay the bill.

When Britain First marched in Luton, they cost the local taxpayer a whopping estimate of £300,000. Money was spent on policing etc...

What is funny is that Britain First leaders asked supporters to donate towards their legal fees before Luton. Deputy leader Jayda Fransen said costs were going to be “£30,000 plus”.

But when they did get their donations from gullible supporters, they marched and cost the taxpayer £300,000 instead.

They accomplished nothing by marching and it was at this very march when Britain First’s leader urged younger supporters to have sex.

Britain First also damaged local business and trade for the town. The Mall shopping centre, which is Luton’s central retail area, recorded a reduction in footfall of approximately 22%, about 16,000 shoppers down, compared to that typically expected for this time of year.

Britain First recycles false news story to spread hate

According to Political Scrapbook, the Daily Express removed a false story recently suggesting that 1.5 million British Muslims support terror group ISIS based on an inaccurate poll from the Mirror.

Britain First knew the Daily Express story was removed, as shown below.

Some days later, Britain First’s affiliate page, Knights Templar International, shared the same story with a similar headline to the Daily Express. Britain First shared it.

Britain First has no regard for truth. They know people will believe this garbage.

Note: BuzzFeed also reported on the fake Daily Express story.

Britain First use celebrity’s dog for clickbait

Far-right group Britain First is a “Christian” party that conveniently forgets “Thou shall not steal”, and steals images online for its own needs.

Not so long ago, we documented how Britain First stole an image of a man from a local newspaper and tried to defame him and other youth.

Yesterday, Britain First stole another image but this time of Lewis Hamilton’s dog Roscoe. They used the image for clickbait.

Note: Lewis Hamilton posted the photo of his dog on Twitter and also on Instagram.

Britain First merchandise made more appropriate

Hate group Britain First, and affiliate pages such as Knights Templar International and Lionheart GB are always promoting their ‘patriot’ merchandise.

Well here are what some t-shirt designs we think might be more appropriate for them to use.

Britain First’s cover photo fail

Far-right Britain First now claims itself as ‘Britain’s Premiere Patriot Movement’. It is not. It is just a group of thugs who know how to buy Likes on Facebook.

Here is their cover photo on Facebook.

Notice the 'PREMIERE'.

According to the dictionary, ‘premiere’ normally means the first performance of a musical or theatrical work or the first showing of a film.

What we think Britain First meant was ‘premier’ which means the best or most important, or the first in importance, order, or position, or leading.

We wonder how long it will take for them to find out.

10 questions I want Britain First to answer

[Guest post]

Today I issue a challenge to the far-right UK movement Britain First. Here are 10 questions I want them to answer. But I doubt they will.

1. Why did your page admin ‘Like’ a status on Facebook about dynamiting mosques?

2. You sent ‘condolences’ to the victims of the Tunisia and France attacks. Why did you miss out Kuwait? Is it because Muslims were the victims?

3. When you ‘invaded’ near-empty mosques, why did you and your group crowd round an old man and intimidate him? Did you feel proud of yourselves?

4. Do you really think you have legitimate followers and support on Facebook when you share click-bait images and have been accused of buying Likes?

5. Lee Rigby’s mother said she was “heartbroken” when you used her son to promote your party. Why did you not listen and share his image again?

6. Why did you remove an image of the man holding the “Boycott bigotry” sign? Is it because you knew people had found out you had defamed a Navy veteran?

7. You passed off ISIS propaganda as truth to support anti-immigration views, why? You also recycled it in your newspaper and your feeder pages (here and here).

8. When you [leader Paul Golding], were told to produce a charity collecting license by a veteran, instead of packing up, why didn’t you just produce it?

9. Why did you [leader Paul Golding], refuse to turn up to a debate with the iERA they invited you to and even said they would provide you security? You said it was a “leadership decision”, but aren’t you the leader?

10. You are apparently the ‘best-funded small party’, but why do you then keep asking for donations? In a recent video you uploaded on 24 June, you used the words “please please please” and asked your supporters to donate towards your legal fees.

A former member of yours told PressTV that you are using people’s weaknesses for your “own gain” - prove me wrong.

EDL show they do hate all Muslims after all

The hate group known as the English Defence League (EDL) has many times been accused of targeting the Muslim community. Today it has showed its true colours.

When the EDL marched in Sheffield, largely outnumbered by opposition, they unfurled a banner inciting hate towards Muslims.

The banner had written on it: “Who the f is Allah”, but most notably “Keep calm and hate Muslims”.

According to hate crime helpline named Tell Mama, a formal complaint has been made to South Yorkshire Police.

Knights Templar International omits information in news

Many times, we have caught far-right groups omitting information, purposefully or accidentally, hiding information from their supporters.

Walmart had recently sold an American man a cake featuring the flag of ISIS, after refusing to sell him one featuring the Confederate battle flag. The news went viral, and was picked up by news worldwide.

Knights Templar International (KTI), which is closely affiliated with far-right group Britain First, shared the news with a link to the video.

But what KTI didn’t tell you was that Walmart had already apologised and a Walmart spokesman said the cake depicting the ISIS flag was made by mistake by an associate “who did not recognise the flag”.

The Guardian story, which included the apology, was published on 30 June, two days before KTI published their post. Britain First published a link three days after.

Note: Knights Templar International is NOT the real Knights Templar or associated in any way. It is a rip-off serving for groups like Britain First.

10 things you should know about Britain First

Britain First is a BNP splinter group. Very active online and covert in its strategies, it propagandises on the traditional far-right views of Islam, immigration and abortion.

It has been notably accused of feeding racism and extremism, scapegoating minorities, sharing false information and deceiving the public.

Here are 10 things you should know about Britain First.

1. Britain First runs secret Facebook pages

Britain First use covert means to draw in support from the online community, using secret pages such as the ones below.

Courtesy of Exposing Britain First

They use these secret pages with similar content to ‘merge Likes’ giving their main page a boost. It also serves as a purpose to covertly promote Britain First ideology, or advertise the shop.

2. Britain First shares fake stories and images

Britain First have falsely attributed quotes to Russian President Vladimir Putin, Iranian leader Ayatollah Khomeini, a famous Islamic scholar and even Marco Polo - all to demonise Muslims.

The group has also slandered Muslim men, fabricating stories about them while stealing images off newspapers and purposefully hiding the full stories so people could not find out. Britain First also defamed a US Navy veteran – who was a Muslim – by photoshopping an image of him (see Point 4).

Britain First also stir anti-Islam rumours. One example is when Andreas Lubitz deliberately crashed a plane in the French Alps. Britain First claimed he was a “convert to Islam” when he actually wasn’t.

These are just some of the many lies and false information we have already exposed on this blog.

3. Britain First has a place on a nonsense website, which is a site dedicated to debunking hoaxes, rumours, as well as online scams, has featured Britain First on its website at least twice.

It also said that Britain First “posts a consistent stream of hypocrisy, misinformation, urban legends and outright lies” and also noted how the group photoshopped an image aimed at inciting racial hatred (next Point).

4. Britain First defamed a Navy veteran

Britain First came under strutiny after posting up an image of a man holding up a photoshopped sign that read: “Boycott bigotry and kill all non Muslims”.

The man was in fact a veteran who has served in the US Navy, and the sign he was holding in real life was edited by Britain First.

He supposedly reported Britain First for defamation.

5. Britain First desecrated image of a murdered soldier 

Britain First have used the name of murdered soldier Lee Rigby for their own gain, despite the objections of his family.

In the 2014 European Elections they even used the phrase “Remember Lee Rigby” as their party description on the ballot papers in Wales.

When Lee’s mother heard of the news, she said her and her family were “heartbroken”. She also said Britain First’s views were “not what Lee believed in and has no support from the family.”

In 15 July, after Lee’s mother had made the plea, Britain First continued to use his image and name again for their own gain.

6. A veteran exposed Britain First in a ‘charity scam

In a video uploaded by a veteran, Britain First leader Paul Golding was filmed running a stall collecting money from the public. The veteran said Golding and his friend were collecting illegally.

When asked to produce his license, Golding didn’t show it. Being confronted, Golding and his friend coincidentally packed up and left.

7. Former member said Britain First use people to “line their own pockets”

A former Britain First member named Matthew Lester told Press TV how Britain First kept asking for donations.

He said: “There’s a fixed ideology to the group, and it’s capitalism. They are using people’s weaknesses to their own gain, to line their own pockets. It’s more and more looking like a BNP reboot.”

This comes to no surprise as Britain First continuously tries to cash in from supporters, even through donations.

One affiliate page even tried to cash in using the Tunisia terror attacks that saw many dead. A link was inserted in the post which directed people to a shop.

8. Britain First leader urged young supporters to start breeding

In a video taken in Luton, Britain First leader Paul Golding was caught on film urging his younger supporters to produce the “next generation”.

Golding said immigrants and Muslims have a very high birth rate, so he said to his supporters: “We need to produce the next generation.”

Later he said: “I’m looking specifically at the young men here and the young women because you’ve got to get out there and you’ve got to produce the next generation of our people!”

The video has been titled the “White Supremacy speech”. You can watch it here.

9. Britain First leader wore knickers on his head at the cenotaph

Britain First leader Paul Golding once turned up to a Remembrance Sunday march at the cenotaph with a pair of women’s knickers on his head.

However, he told Channel 4 that someone else “had put them” on his head.

10. Former leader admits group is “overrun with racists and extremists”

Britain First founder Jim Dowson said he quit in July 2014 and said Britain First is now “overrun with racists and extremists” and described the group’s tactics as “unacceptable and unchristian”.

He told the Independent: “No matter how many times I told [Paul Golding the current leader] I did not want decent Muslims intimidated, he just continued doing it... I have come to the conclusion that no matter how hard I tried, you cannot escape from the fact that the group is being overrun with racists and extremists.”

Also, Britain First was caught ‘Liking’ a status left by a supporter suggesting someone, or some people, to ‘dynamite the hell’ out of a mosque.

Another Britain First affiliate page shares ISIS propaganda

It was not long ago when we caught far-right group Britain First scaring people by passing off ISIS propaganda as truth for their anti-immigration and anti-Islam views.

Now they’ve shared the same image onto their affiliate page ‘English and Proud’.

As we noted before, the Independent said the plans were ISIS propaganda. The researcher who brought this into light even said that the propaganda “could not be taken as fact”.

Coincidentally, Britain First published the same untrue information in their rag of a newspaper and did not state anywhere in the column what the researcher said.

Without a care in the world, Britain First is sharing exactly what ISIS terrorists are wanting people to believe.

Britain First protest cost taxpayers nearly £300000

The Bedfordshire News has reported that the Britain First march that took place in Luton cost nearly £300,000. And the local taxpayer will be having to pay the bill.

The protest was attended by 500 police officers from 15 different forces and the protest had a large impact on businesses.

The Mall shopping centre, which is Luton’s central retail area, recorded a reduction in footfall of approximately 22%, about 16,000 shoppers down, compared to that typically expected for this time of year.

PCC Olly Martins said: “Whilst in the past these costs have eventually been reimbursed, it is anticipated that they will now fall directly upon Bedfordshire taxpayers alone.”

Marches in Luton by the English Defence League, and now Britain First, have cost £3.5m in the last five years.

Britain First, which is continuing to ask for your donations, will probably not want this news to be shared.

Lionheart GB tries to cash in on Tunisia shooting tragedy

Many far-right UK groups have a habit of hijacking tragic events.

Lionheart GB, which has been accused by critics of being tied in with far-right group Britain First, were caught trying to make money through the recent terror attack in Tunisia.

A day after the shooting, they shared an image that offered thoughts for the families and friends of those who were killed. But in the text was a link which directed people straight to the ‘Patriot Store’, an online store which sells t-shirts, badges and other merchandise.

This is the page people are directed to when they click on the link in the post.

A shop. Lionheart GB has exploited the deaths of innocents for financial gain.

Coincidentally, the Knights Templar International group also shared this post with the same text and the same link to the shop.

To all those who don’t know, this is the same group Britain First is promoting on its website and getting people to join. It is believed Britain First run this page too.

Veterans protest against Britain First in Luton

Did you know Britain First was once reported by a veteran who claimed they were involved in a Help for Heroes scam?

Did you know a Navy veteran reported them for defamation? Or what about when the leader once turned up to the Cenotaph with knickers on his head?

When Britain First came to Luton on 27 June, they were not wanted and not even by the veterans who turned up to oppose them.

Below is a photo taken of the veterans who called Britain First leader Paul Golding a ‘coward’ and said Britain First are ‘ripping off military charities, disrespecting veterans and too scared to answer our questions!’
