I’m not bewildered, far from it. I deprogrammed and left the Borg almost 25 years ago, before the Internet greatly facilitated discovery of the truth about the ‘Truth’, and have studied comparative religion as well as living, working and studying with Muslims my entire life. Don’t assume I don’t know what I am talking about, it won’t go well for you.
EDL grew from the ashes of the BNP as that grew from the ashes of the NF. With each rebirth the shit-phoenix of xenophobia rubs off the rough edges and refines its message. As the out-and-out racism of the NF became socially unacceptable, it effectively rebranded as the BNP, but large numbers of supporters simply shifted allegiance to the new party without undergoing a Damascene moment regarding racial equality or multiculturalism. However, the remarketing led to capturing those dissatisfied with Conservative Party policies who would never have joined the NF. Likewise, the EDL performed the same trick. Slightly more refined xenophobia, same transfer of supporters from an older incarnation, same capture of those dissatisfied with Conservative Party policies who would never have joined the BNP. And after leaving the EDL, what does Tommy do? Get involved with Pegida, another xenophobia organisation. LOL.
You might be fooled by a xenophobe changing his affiliations but I am not.
I now have to quote what you say before each response to illustrate that when I describe you as a hysterical, hyperbolic xenophobe I am using descriptive languge not insults:
<<In addition, if advanced Western society is to survive, prosper, and not be plummeted deep back into the dark ages, it will be because of people like Tommy who have the intestinal fortitude to stand up and call it out as it is, irrespective of the personal cost. If we should survive, there will be a statue of him some day, alongside Charles Martel.>>
OK, let’s break this down; ‘advanced Western society’. This ignores the battles for racial and sexual equality that are still to be won de facto even if in many places the battle has been won de jure (although this is at risk in some places). Doesn’t sound too advanced. This same ‘advanced Western society’ has had two world wars in the past hundred years, and has invaded and destabilised countries for resources and strategic advantage in living memory. Doesn’t sound too advanced either. Te reason that woman and POC have the same rights in ‘advanced Western society’ is not because white men gave the those rights, but because women and POC fought for those rights. Doesn’t sound too advanced. Half of all women murdered in the UK are murdered by current or former male sexual partners (compared to a fraction of that for the reverse). Doesn’t sound too advanced. Women are blamed for men raping them. Doesn’t sound too advanced. Oooo, do you mean mobile phones and TVs? LOL. Our culture advancement has more to do with the Industrial Revolution necessitating the education of women to work, women becoming more economically active, and two hundred years of secularism ameliorating the ignorance of out cultural religion. Most Muslim cultures have not had that so are obviously not as advanced yet. It's only time, not intrinsic values.
And ‘to survive, prosper, and not be plummeted deep back into the dark ages’. Really? In the EU the percentage of Muslims based on current birth rates, total intergenerational religious fidelity, and high migration it is calculated the Muslim population would be about 18% in some countries, lower in most.
Of course, the fact is despite what some people will try to say, Muslims are just like us. Other immigrant populations have had their birth rates drop as in Europe it’s no longer necessary to have lots of children and nicer to have fewer children and more comfortable lives; Muslims will be no different. The EU has in the space of a few generations become dramatically secularised with most people only having nominal religious adherence; Muslims will be no different.
If you look at likely rates of birth rate fall alone, and still assume total intergenerational religious fidelity, it is hard to come up with a population simulation where the Muslim population in the EU goes above a third or so. But as there will not be total intergenerational religious fidelity, it will be less than that.
The rest of your comment is pseudo-Christian European nationalism. I mean, “intestinal fortitude”, “there will be a statue of him some day, alongside Charles Martel”, get a grip. You are scared of people from other cultures. I understand that. It’s kind of pathetic. But your claims are unfounded.
<<You have not heard half of what he has had to endure, I recommend you read his book>>
I don’t need to read that or Mein Kampf either, thank you. Self-aggrandization by narcissistic xenophobes cynically exploiting the fear of those scared of change who want to have someone to blame for the problems in their life does nothing for me. Why do you find such rubbish worthy of attention?
<<How did we come to know about this scandal, the rapes and terrible exploitation of thousands of young girls and the multi agency multi decade cover up??
We know about this now because Tommy and a few others put it all on the line and spoke up, he spoke up for his children and ours and for this, he is a political prisoner.>>
Tommy had NOTHING to do with the investigation. Nothing. Please don’t lie. He didn't put anything on the line. He's a convicted fraudster and football hooligan. This xenophobia IS his line.
