There are a number of articles and blogs claiming that the English Defence League [EDL] are a state founded and state funded trap. People from the left and right wing are saying that the something about EDL doesn't add up. Many are saying [probably rightly] that they are a front for MI5 and Special Branch. If that's the case do Muslims, mosques and others have the right to prosecute MI5 for racism?
The Elections are due, could this be a ruse by the current government to discredit the British National Party? Are they trying to get the BNP proscribed by creating a uniform wearing, demonstrating, political "BNP" thug outfit?
Are they trying to get Muslim youth to mobilise? Is this a trap to get THEM?
What is clearly unusual about this is that BNP's Chris Renton is a key player but the youth leader Joel Titus is Black and the facebook admins are Black and Asian. Chris Renton is said to organise the internet side of things with them. Why would someone from the BNP [a gold card member] be behind such a group?
The placards used by the EDL all look like they've been done as a joke. The "Gert" placards...Geert Wilders spelled wrongly. The Burka placards which use a picture of a man in a burka. The "serious" website that tells people not to sing the Allah songs etc. Yet there are very articulate, well read and educated people writing about Islam on the website.
Most of the people on the marches are working class lads [mostly men although some women] who are gald to be a part of something "for us". A lot of money has been put into and is being made out of this...for what?
Experienced activists are saying that there is something not right about the EDL. Bloggers have pictures of the riot police taking away Weyman Bennet with the caption : "This is how the EDL deal with lard arse" implying that they think that the EDL are the police or run by the police. If they are the police then the police are running around attacking Muslims and smashing up shops. It has been said before that the head of MI5 has links to David Irving and dodgy oil connections. Could he be behind the EDL attacks? Is he using the EDL to get at Muslims AND the British National Party? Two birds with one stone.
Some claim that they are UAF. Even Nick Griffin has denounced them as a state set up. He could be right. If it turns out that he is right, how mnay EDL are in on it? Something sure is strange about the English Defence League, that much is true and alot of people are saying it. While a lot of groups get accused of this..this is far more apparent with the EDL than with any other group.
