Not the EDL...

A few days ago someone sprayed the Bomber Command Memorial with the word islam and attempted to blot out some of the names. In the aftermath of the Lee Rigby barbarism the weird and wonderful people who inhabit the left of the political spectrum immediately denounced it as a put up job by the EDLto discredit the downtrodden and victimised muslim communities of the UK who clearly had nothing to do with the barbarism other than being muslims who follow the tenets in the quran that the killers did, same book, same rules...
Well seems that there has been a video released of the perpetrator and sadly he doesn't fit the profile of the average EDL member... despite the hopes and dreams of many on the left and the MSM.
Mail.
Working alone in the dark and covering his face with a balaclava, this is the vile thug responsible for scrawling the word 'Islam' across Britain's celebrated Bomber Command Memorial.
The vandal was caught on camera desecrating the Central London monument to the 55,573 RAF crew who lost their lives in the Second World War.
The suspect is seen moving in and out of the shadows to spray it with red paint early on Monday morning, in a shameless attempt to stir up hatred.
Hatred for whom, the Mail does not say though considering their past form they appear to think it was to stir up hatred against muslims... because astonishingly the Mail misses out one vital detail in their article...
Express.
The man, of African appearance, is captured moving in and out of the shadows to spray the monument in London in the early hours on Monday.
Now the EDL does have African members, it's not normally mentioned by the left or the MSM because it rather makes their arguments that the EDL are somehow racist look a tad weak...
However the EDL do not target monuments, do not target mosques and would like as not string up any member they found doing such a thing. However the left and the MSM are desperate to move the narrative along from the fact that the killers of Lee Rigby were muslims onto anyone else and the EDL because it opposes islam is the target of choice and is often held up as the opposite coin to islamic extremism despite never having flown planes into buildings, blown up tube trains and buses, blown up disco's, set off nail bombs in caf├ęs or groomed underage girls to name but a few islamic 'habits'
Despite the media claims, the EDL are very law abiding ordinary folk who want the government to deal with islamic extremism, it's a naive hope perhaps, but it's a start. People are getting angrier and angrier with the governments inability to deal with the issue, this is self evident in the articles attacking the EDL. It's much easier to blame the reaction rather than the real culprits after all.

As a typical liberal metropolitan elite bourgeois type, I know I'm supposed to hate the EDL, but ....

AFAICR they have never done anything really nasty to anybody (not as an organisation - I dunno about individual members)), they have their beliefs, a bit of a sense of humour and spirit of togetherness, and all things considered, I think they make the world a slightly better place.

How ridiculous to try and slant this to the EDL perhaps some of the attacks on mosques etc have been carried out by Islamists trying to portray their opponents in a bad light. After all they are masters of this tactic in the Middle East using pretend dead children firing rockets in schools not that the MSM ever pitch that theory. So anyway smart money is now going on it being the work of some dufus Muslim fancy that.

My second point is reading Henry Winter's column in the Telegraph 30 May about the England v Ireland game. He would like us to believe that at Wembley because of the liberal's knickers getting twisted over No Surrender songs the FA ramped up the volume to drown out an interruption from England fans singing no surrender to the IRA during God Save the Queen. I think Henry you might find that the volume was turned up to drown out any IRA sympathisers or just general Anti Englishness from our cheery boozy friends supporting ROI. You know the sort of people that despite being born here and / or at least plying their trade here refuse to wear a poppy like that Sunderland player. But its better just to continue to propagate that only English working class are horrible and are rude not anyone else.

Sorry technical hitch 1st point on the Standard 28 May written by Peyvand Khorsandi apparently Stephen Lennon can't be English because he is of Irish stock. So is his point you can't be English perhaps we can apply this principle to those people of Pakistani, Arabic and African stock from Tipton, Luton or Greenwich when they are caught in the Khyber Pass or some other Islamic shithole / paradise with an AK47 by UK / US Special Forces then wind up drinking the water in Guantanamo Bay begging for British intervention. We can say sorry, love to help but not our countrymen

Well, anon, as Stephen Lennon was born here and considers himself to be English, that's good enough for me.

Well QM I quite agree and that is my point too, that they have tried to dig hm out on that basis but would not like it if we said that about some other people. Love your blog and to be fair like Stephen I was born in England of Irish stock but have always considered myself English so keep up the good work.
