Nigel Farage UKIP racism

With UKIP at the centre of another row over disgusting comments from a candidate, a round up of the racist, anti-Semitic and Islamophobic things you can say as a UKIP candidate — but not get chucked out — is long overdue.

Let’s start with the latest furore:

Telling Lenny Henry to “emigrate to a black country”

It’s going on three days since that story broke and William Henwood is still a candidate for Enfield Council.

While Cllr Chris Pain eventually parted from UKIP over another matter, he DID NOT get chucked out for …

Posting to Facebook: “Go home you free-loading, benefit-grabbing, resource-sucking, baby-making, non-English-speaking ********* and take those other hairy-faced, sandal-wearing, bomb-making, camel-riding, goat-********, raghead ******** with you.’”

 

A social media account of another UKIP candidate posted anti-semitic material to the party’s official Facebook pages over the course of at least 11 months no one at HQ noticed or cared. She even posted on Facebook …

Telling Nigel Farage that ‘Jewish bankers dominate the world’ (twice)

Anna-Marie Crampton (pictured below with Farage) also claimed that a global conspiracy was headed by the, errr, queen. She was not expelled.

Then there’s Worcestershire county councillor Eric Kitson who hit the headlines after …

Suggesting Muslim women should be hanged

Despite admitting to the comments, UKIP didn’t even suspend him because “they had not completed their investigations”. He eventually resigned of his own accord.

Regular Scrapbook readers may remember Oxford council candidate Julia Gasper, notorious for …

Claiming: “Why is it any more wrong to assert that the Koran is a fascist book than to assert that Mein Kampf is a fascist book?”

“In fact, the apologists for Islam are really very similiar to Holocaust deniers.”

Rather than chuck her out, the party released an official statement saying “we do support her right to hold those views.” Farage was well aware, trying to distract from the row with claims that Gasper had received death threats:

While Farage has claimed that he expels his bigots, this is the UKIP standard operating procedure:

Claim that their Facebook/Twitter was hacked or launch an investigation … which does nothing.

    Are UKrap a bunch of silly old eccentrics?
    or ” neighbour watch to the nation” or psychopaths with a warped view and a grudge against anyone who doesnt fit with their ultra conservative nationalist delusion of ” people should know their place ” eg ” unemployed are parasitic criminal underclass ”
    Nazis in “badly fitting ” suits
    At least Neil Hamilton resigned at last
