We all know that there is no such thing as unity within the far-right, they all want to be their own fuhrers. So the other week the EDL march organised by Mickey ‘Batshit’ Bayliss who is a member of every far right group going seemed to do better than most – he got a few EDL divisions out as well as all the nutty more openly racist smaller groups (about 150 people in total, although he did have to publicly tell the NF to fuck off after he got caught inviting them). It appears however that the ‘unity’ only lasted a day, and upset the EDL leadership who have distanced themselves from the Portsmouth Demo. Here is a screen shot of the EVF blog in which they are discussing one of Tommy Robinsons tweets that he wrote in reply to a Portsmouth EDL member @pompeyali.
Notice how they refer to the people who show up to demo’s as ‘foot soldiers’ – just like being in the army, but you’re allowed to be racist, and your not in any danger, and you don’t have to do anything.
All this lands Portsmouth EDL in a spot of bother – they can tow the EDL line and stop working with the openly fascist groups, and go back to the peddling the myth that EDL aint fascist. Or they can fuck the EDL off and become another, smaller, extremist group (or align with the EVF) that would probably suit the hardcore members better. Although the latter option would see them lose the soft support they get from some sections who have just swallowed the shit the EDL pumps out, the kind of people who say ‘I’m not racist… but’.
If things ain’t bad enough for the beleaguered Portsmouth Division it looks as though EDL head office has sanctioned a new Portsmouth Group – Portsmouth South EDL, maybe to replace the traitors in the other group, confused yet? Here’s a screen shot from the page ‘South Coast Patriot News’.
As a side note, South Coast Patriot News has some pretty horrific racist stuff on it, We won’t reproduce it, go and have a look for yourself: https://www.facebook.com/SouthCoastPatriotNews
It’s the usual collection of news stories from around the world of Muslims committing crimes, designed to slowly brainwash the reader into thinking that all Muslims are criminals – It’s not much different to the way the Nazi’s treated the Jews. It’s written by ‘Buzz Patriot’ – who we can only assume is the Guy who uses the facebook name ‘Buzz Pompey Patriot’, who’s real name is Adam Brophy:
So the EDL in Portsmouth are in a bit of a mess, this does not mean people should be complacent – Bayliss was threatening another demo all last week, he then told the police he would not host a demo, whilst in the same breath telling the Portsmouth News he wouldn’t be telling the police if he did. If they have to sneak around holding flash demo’s it shows their weakness, but antifascists in the city will be will be keeping a close eye on where the fascist scum go from here.
Just for an extra 10 points we’d like to point out that the Pompey EDL tried to tie their protest against a school to the issue of ‘grooming gangs’ – As we have reported previously, there has not been any grooming gangs in Portsmouth (apart from white ones). Below are two reports from the 16th August news – about two nonces from Pompey. Not a peep has been heard about this from South Coast Patriot News or Portsmouth EDL. It doesn’t fit their racist agenda, and they look after their own.
