Danish Racist Diatribe

Matthew Collins - 26 04 12

Last month, The Danish Defence league hosted the European Counter-Jihad Meeting in Denmark.

It was to say the least a bit of a damp squib with anti fascist demonstrators outnumbering the far-right by more than 20 to one.

Estimates suggested as few as 160 defence league members from several countries gathered at the inaugural far-right summit in Aarhus for the European counter-jihad meeting, devised to “send a clear message to the leaders of Europe” that Islamism would not be tolerated.

EDL leader Tommy Robinson admitted only 15 supporters from England made the trip, despite earlier speculation that hundreds might attend.

Today the Danish Defence League posted a racist diatribe on their closed Facebook group that goes to prove that when it comes to blatant racism they are in the same league as their English counterparts.

One of the admins to the group is UK based Steve Simmons aka Chris Redmond, The founder and organiser of the European Freedom Initiative and was previously Head of Media for the English Defence League but then fell out with the leadership. He is a key player in the European ‘counter-jihad’ scene and has recently re-established a relationship with the EDL leadership.
