Tory MEP dredges up Nigel Farage alleged ‘nigger’ comments

In a sign of the growing animosity between Conservatives and UKIP, a Tory MEP has dredged up damaging allegations of racist comments by Nigel FarageSajjad Karim — the first British Muslim to be elected to the European Parliament — claimed on his official Facebook page that Farage had told party activists:

“we will never win the nigger vote. The nig-nogs will never vote for us.”

Karim’s post resurrects previous claims by the founder of UKIP — made as he left the party claiming it had been “infected by the far right”. The message was posted yesterday as a row erupted over a controversial UKIP billboard on immigration (above) — provocatively erected in the multiethnic Levenshulme area of Manchester.

While burgeoning on mainstream success, the party has struggled to deal with extremists in its own ranks. A UKIP candidate remained under the party’s banner last year despite Scrapbook exposing comments comparing Islam’s holiest book to Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf.

“Loonies, fruitcakes and closet racists” — at least David Cameron was right about one thing.

    I’d like to hear Karims thoughts on women, gays and the kaffir in general, should be very illuminating, or will he hide behind his taqiyya.

    “Far right” – this is BBC speak. We used hear about the “extreme left”, but never the “extreme right”. Has everyone adopted this piece of BBC brainwashing, whereby fascist thugs become “far right activists”?

    @mike

    Well given that he’s Vice-President of the European Parliament’s Equality and Diversity Intergroup and Co-Chair of the European Muslim Forum focussing on the rise of intolerance and Islamophobia, anti-Semitism and growing support for the far-right political parties, I would imagine he’s probably reasonably “right-on” for a Tory. He also he played an key role in securing the return of a 6 year-old (Atiya Anjum-Wilkinson) to UK from Pakistan following abduction by her father, which I would also imagine places him on the liberal end of Islam. But hey, don’t let us stop you stereotyping all Muslims as al-Qaeda sympathisers

  4. [...] Writing on his Facebook page on Tuesday morning, Tory MEP Sajjad Karim quoted remarks allegedly made by Farage when speaking to UKIP founder Dr Alan Sked. Karim posted: “More relevations. ‘We will never win the nigger vote, the nig-nogs will never vote for us’ – Nigel Farage to UKIP founder Alan Sked, who abandoned the party over its adoption of far-right ideologies”.

    This is part of a dialectic – those guys are infiltrators for people with the wider intention of making all alternatives to the ‘mainstream’ appear ‘extremist’

    If Nigel Farage said what he is alleged to have said, it doesn’t really matter who exposed him, does it?

    That is just ridiculous lies and propaganda by a Muslim MP. He should be stepping down for that. That doesn’t sound like Nigel at all. How is the fact that UK cannot afford to bring in more immigrants with full EU rights anything to do with racism?
    It’s also very concerning that someone like Sajjad Karim, as a practicing Muslim, representing death penalty for apostasy, murder of gays, legalized rape and oppression of women and sodomy of children is elected to be on the European Parliament’s Equality and Diversity Intergroup!

    Or possibly Tim, you’re just a twat…
