But it is with the people of Britain that hope lies. It is with those who took to the streets of Birmingham who showed those spreading hate that such poison will provoke an instant reaction.
Well, yes. Absolutely. An instant reaction. And not just to those spreading hate either (possibly distressing video content in the link) :
"as far as i'm aware the story behind this guy is that two people said to each other "lets rob him" and because they started hitting him ..."
Nasty - looks like a jump to the head from the thug in trackies. If hope lies with him and his mates the future looks bleak.
"... the rest of the crowd, already wound up from the drunk guy gobbing off from earlier all pounced on him with at least 10 or 15 people kicking this guy on the ground. don't think he was EDL but can't confirm ..."
And if he had been demonstrating with the English Defence League it would still have been a disgusting attack. From the comments at Harry's, RandomBrummie :
The majority of the people who were attacked were random passers by. The “fash” as you call them had long gone by then. If you were a White male passing by the crowd you were going to get a kicking. There was even a foreign White guy who made the mistake of taking pictures of what was going on and he was attacked in front of his young baby who was left unprotected in its pram. Granted the majority of the attacks were not as brutal as the pictures on the Daily Mail Website but i still don’t think it should have happened. Ironically the UAF scarpered when they saw what was beginning to happen with the ethnic minority youths attacking innocent White passers by (not saying that a few of the people who were set upon weren’t inciting the minorities because they were, but the vast majority just made the mistake of being in the wrong place at the wrong time) so it seems that the UAF only protest against racism when it is White racism directed towards ethnic minorities, not when it is the other way around.
I was in full support of the UAF originally as i agreed that the EDL were not what they seemed but after seeing what ended up happening i have changed my opinion completely.
I just thank god that i am a female so was not in the roaming youths line of fire.
As I wrote back in May :
I do not approve of beating up innocent people, be they respectable fast-food vendors of the wrong ethnicity in Luton or respectable fathers of the wrong religion in Coleraine.
Better add white Brummies to that.
