A Nazi National Front Remembrance Sunday

Matthew Collins - 11 11 22

Every Remembrance Sunday – after politicians, dignitaries, heads of state and military veterans go home, a moronic shuffle makes its way to the Cenotaph in central London to lay wreaths, mime hymns and attempt to control their leaky bladders.

This quite abhorrent shuffle began in the late 1960’s. It was initially a protest by the once ‘mighty’ National Front (NF), in support of South African and Rhodesian [now Zimbabwe] soldiers who had served in the Second [and first] World Wars, but were no longer recognised as Commonwealth veterans.

Not that the NF were particularly enamoured with the idea of commemorating the Allied victory against the fascist-Nazi axis in the Second World War – since inception the party has held the opinion Britain was on the wrong side during that war. The NF protest was in support of the Apartheid, forced-segregation and racism of South Africa and Rhodesia – two countries which the NF held in high esteem and where in fact, many of their founding members would retire to.

At one time, the NF could fill Whitehall with its angry faces and banners, but over the past few years it has been forced to shuffle along the pavement like vagabond salesman of hatred to conduct an embarrassment of offences against the memory of British and Commonwealth war dead.

Tony ‘Cucumber’ Martin, the NF’s dynamic leader with confused looking woman

The NF’s current dynamic leader – Tony ‘Cucumber’ Martin has the dubious honour of leading the smallest NF Remembrance Parade in the party’s history, Many have tired of him misreading and mispronouncing psalms.

The NF and other fascist-Nazi parties often describe the Second World War as a ‘Brothers War’ whereby two friendly nations went to war needlessly. Given they also hate Jews, this is heavily backed up with Antisemitic and Holocaust denial theories.

Just how small this annual besmirch will actually be this year is anybody’s guess. But one thing that is for certain is that it will be filed with some of the least pleasant neo-Nazis in Britain.

One such person is the NF’s sole and lonely drummer boy, Mal McElhinney.

McElhinney once boasted how he dreamed of firebombing the HOPE not hate office. And this year he was charged by his leader in not just driving up interest in the parade/shuffle of shame, he was also to ask people go for pee before they march on the parade.

An empty bladder should compliment their empty brains

The NF will no doubt be bleating and pleading again next year about how they are great patriotic types and should still be allowed to soil the memory of the war dead. So we thought we would have a look at McElhinney who seems to be the party’s chief whip on such important matters as encouraging party members not to urinate on the Cenotaph.

Nazi Dog

Above we see McElhinney relaxing at home in what looks like the hood of the Ku Klux Klan. His T-shirt also has the immoral “14 88” slogan – in Nazi parlance that translates as the murderous fourteen words.

“14 Words” is a reference to the most popular white supremacist slogan in the world: “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.” The slogan was coined by David Lane, a member of the white supremacist terrorist group in the United States known as The Order (Lane died in prison in 2007). The term reflects the primary white supremacist worldview in the late 20th and early 21st centuries: that unless immediate action is taken, the white race is doomed to extinction by an alleged “rising tide of colour” purportedly controlled and manipulated by Jews.

The 88 on the t-shirt is code for “Heil Hitler”, with H being the eighth letter of the alphabet.

McElhinney: No military experience, just neo-Nazi cosplay

As far as we know, Kent based McElhinney has never served in the military, but he does like to dress up and take part in war games. His favourite uniform appears to be that of the Nazis. Quelle surprise…

The National Front is a nasty but tiny Nazi party. Isn’t it high time they were stopped from paying homage to their real heroes?
