UKIP candidates’ racist and homophobic rants on Facebook

28 April 2013

In the run up to Thursday’s 2013 English council elections, Nigel Farage is extremely embarrassed after the exposition that some of his UKIP candidates are EDL fans who have been making some unsavoury (read: racist and homophobic) comments on Facebook.

Before the European elections, Nigel Farage, leader of the Ukip party in Britain, said he would not want to cooperate with racist parties like the National Front from France, or Geert Wilders‘ PVV in the Netherlands.

However, after the elections, Farage did decide to form a group in the European Parliament, jointly with the extreme Right ‘Swedish Democrats’. These self-styled ‘democrats’ look more like neo-nazis, in their witch hunts against people of colour and against what in nazi parlance, is called ‘degenerate art’.

From daily The Guardian in Britain:

Ukip does deal with far-right, racist Holocaust-denier to save EU funding

The agreement with the Polish Congress of the New Right will save Nigel Farage’s European parliament grouping

Ukip has struck a deal with a Polish MEP whose far-right party leader casually uses racial slurs and questions the Holocaust following fears that its grouping in Europe would lose millions of pounds in taxpayers’ funds.

Nigel Farage’s Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy group recruited an MEP from the Congress of the New Right with the blessing of its controversial leader Janusz Korwin-Mikke, according to reports from Poland. The Polish MEP Robert Iwaszkiewicz is to join the EFDD’s ranks as an individual, which will restore the group, a Ukip spokesman said.

The deal means that the EFDD group, set up by Farage, has 25 MEPs from seven countries, which should guarantee that Ukip will maintain about £1m a year in funding. The group received €2.6m (£2.1m) in 2013. Ukip accounts for 53.3% of the group.

The deal is yet to be confirmed by the European parliament, after Iwaszkiewicz’s application was handed in this afternoon.

Korwin-Mikke, whose party has two remaining MEPs and received 7.5% support in Poland during May’s European parliamentary elections, is one of the most outspoken figures within the far-right groupings of parliament.

In July, he declared in English that the minimum wage should be “destroyed” and said that “four million niggers” lost their jobs in the US as a result of President John F Kennedy signing a bill on the minimum wage in 1961. He went on to claim that 20 million young Europeans were being treated as “negroes” as a result of the minimum wage. He refused to apologise and was fined 10 days of allowances for his comments.

Korwin-Mikke has also called for the vote to be taken away from women, has claimed that the difference between rape and consensual sex is “very subtle” and said that Adolf Hitler was “probably not aware that Jews were being exterminated”.

Marine Le Pen, the leader of the Front National, ruled out forming an alliance with the Congress of the New Right after the European elections. “His [Korvin-Mikke’s] remarks, his political views ran contrary to our values,” she said at the time.

Hypocrisy by Ms Le Pen. After the elections, Le Pen and Wilders almost had an agreement with Korwin-Mikke, which then broke down at the last moment about details; meaning Le Pen and Wilders don’t have an official group in the European Parliament.

The EFDD has been desperate to recruit a new MEP since last Thursday, when Iveta Grigule, a Latvian member of the group, resigned. This meant that the group only had MEPs from six EU member states, just below the number needed to qualify for official group status.

Farage accused Martin Schulz, the president of the European parliament, of acting as the head of a “banana republic”. He said that pressure was placed on Grigule to stand down if she wanted to lead a parliamentary delegation to Kazakhstan.

Polish newspapers reported that a Ukip official negotiated with the Congress of the New Right in Poland this weekend over plans to give a single MEP to EFDD.

A spokesman for Ukip did not respond to questions asking what Ukip has promised the Congress of the New Right in return for allowing the EFDD to be revived or whether they had negotiated directly with Korwin-Mikke.

Iwaszkiewicz said he joined EFDD “because of two important values – opposition to EU bureaucracy and support for free markets”.

UKIP’s new friends in Europe: “disabled shouldn’t be seen on television”: here.

The extreme Right in Poland: here. And here.

  1. Any MP/MEP making a racist remark, a sexist remark or any remark designed to offend should immediately be sacked. The right wing is getting steadily stronger and if we don’t stop them now we’ll have another Nazi party storming it’s way through someone else’s Countries killing indiscriminately.
