In the grand scheme of fascist oiks Nick Griffin is a slick operator – the king of the oiks, if you will. The video below, filmed in 2000, gives historical perspective into the tactics now adopted by the BNP to bring the party into the mainstream – tactics which are now paying dividends.
Despite the flack the party are receiving currently they have cause to be pleased with the progress they have made in the last decade. The BNP have received continuous (if mixed) news coverage for the last week so in this sense Griffin’s strategy of making its ideas “sale-able” is working:
“There’s a difference between selling out your ideas and selling your ideas. The BNP isn’t about selling out it’s ideas, which are your ideas too, but we are determined now to sell them. And that means using the sale-able words. ‘Freedom”, ‘security’, ‘identity’, ‘democracy’. Nobody can criticise them. Nobody can come at you and attack you on those ideas – they are sale-able
Perhaps one day the British people might change their mind and say ‘yeah, yeah every last [non-white person] must go’ … but if you hold that up as your sole aim to start with you’re going to get absolutely nowhere. So instead of talking about ‘racial purity we talk about ‘identity’.”
Notice that when Griffin says his ideas “are your ideas too” he is sat alongside David Duke. Duke is the former head of murderous pillow-case-on-your-head “white nationalists” the Klu Klux Klan.
