British Sharia Protestors Giving American Bigots Run For Their Money

by Jack Stuef


Muslim, muslamic law, from Iraq, you know. Muslamic ray-guns? We’re not quite sure what this bloke is saying (something about the metric system and putting blood in their pudding cups?), but we know these guys are better than our bigots. When’s the last time you saw a mosk protest in the United States? Back in the summer before all the teevee shows returned for the fall schedule! Our shriveled-up old bigots are too lazy to protect us from Sharia. And just look at that video! You can fit a lot more bigots into your rally thing when you’re not all in scooters!

But not so fast! The English Defence League has this to say about gay rights on its website, which includes FLASH ANIMATION, the work of the librul elite:

Judging from what has been written in the article it would appear that Gay Pride is putting the doctrine of political correctness before standing up for gay people who have been on the receiving end of Islam inspired aggression and persecution. Its willingness to back down in the face of this aggression does not indicate ‘pride’ at all. It is basically saying that respect for the Islamic religion effectively trumps basic human rights in general and gay rights in particular. In the absence of a credible opposition to Islamic homophobia perhaps the EDL should stand up to oppose the persecution of gay people in the East End directly and take to the streets itself?

Yes, the EDL even has a photo of an English flag with a rainbow on it in that post. Nice try, you redcoat scum! You attempt to lure the Teabaggers into joining you with your fight against Sharia, but you’re just another secret gay conspiracy! The founding fathers knew exactly what they (Mel Gibson in The Patriot) were doing when they bayonetted you! Our bigots will continue to hate BOTH mosks and fagets with the same strength. It’s called “equality.” [YouTube/EDL]

Rain man moved to Britain?

aguacatero March 25, 2011 at 12:37 pm

They look like people who were denied employment as soccer hooligans for being too boorish and stupid.

freakishlywrong March 25, 2011 at 12:39 pm

Why do all these idiots sound like drunken retards? He sounds like one of Chuckles Grassley's tweets.

emberglance March 25, 2011 at 1:08 pm

I wonder why…

SorosBot March 25, 2011 at 1:26 pm

It's logic; if all Brits are drunks, and all teabaggers are retards, then all British teabaggers are drunk retards.

ShaveTheWhales March 25, 2011 at 5:35 pm

Why do all these idiots sound like drunken retards?

Because the pubs are open.

Swampgas_Man March 25, 2011 at 5:38 pm

Proving once again there's only about an eighth of a vowel between BBC newsreaders and those sheep-botherers in Suffolk or somegoddamnwhere.

Lascauxcaveman March 25, 2011 at 12:41 pm

Hahaha. I can't understand a word he's saying. Might as well be complaining about how poorly his side did at the football match.

Also, Limey Lizzie or other Brit commenters here, I'm told different neighbourhoods of London have different accents that set them apart from each other as much as a Mainer's manner of speaking sets him apart from a Texan. Can you place this guy?

Limeylizzie March 25, 2011 at 12:56 pm

'ello Mate! I think he is from the North, not London or even close, possibly the Midlands.

Limeylizzie March 25, 2011 at 1:01 pm

I listened to it again and I believe it is from the Bolton EDL rally, which puts it outside Manchester in the North West of England.

teebob2000 March 25, 2011 at 1:11 pm

"The palindrome of Bolton is Notlob."

freakishlywrong March 25, 2011 at 1:19 pm

So, you're bigots are in the Narth then? Good to know.

SorosBot March 25, 2011 at 1:28 pm

I believe that the English North is said to be comparable to the American South.

Limeylizzie March 25, 2011 at 1:31 pm

Well, in that it is poorer, more working-class and the seat of government is miles away, I suppose that could be said, but it is very industrial.

LowProfileinGA March 25, 2011 at 3:33 pm

Only a devoted Wonkette could listen to it twice.

elviouslyqueer March 25, 2011 at 1:13 pm

Wait. You mean he wasn't? I figured all that talk about Muslamic infeedels was just slang for those wankers on Majesty United.

natoslug March 25, 2011 at 1:45 pm

I'm not a Brit, but I think I can can narrow down his accent to Upper Retardshire. Boy needs to stop huffing so much paint.

WriteyWriterton March 25, 2011 at 3:30 pm

"Paint. It's what's for huffing." (TM)

(And that is way too many apostrophes.)

Swampgas_Man March 25, 2011 at 5:41 pm

Paint–Huffington On-the-Moranshire.

comrad_darkness March 25, 2011 at 2:06 pm

I'm sadly disappointed in myself then. I caught every word. Come on, he repeated himself three times at least with every phrase. It was like a bad opera without the tune.

freakishlywrong March 25, 2011 at 12:42 pm

Had to turn it off at "Mooslamic Infidels". The Moran is high in this one.

V572 [REDACTED] March 25, 2011 at 1:32 pm

Like "Christian heretics" or "compassionate conservatives."

elviouslyqueer March 25, 2011 at 12:42 pm

Michele Bachmann, meet your new running mate. BACHMANN/RETARDED SKINHEAD 2012!

V572 [REDACTED] March 25, 2011 at 12:43 pm

Yet another thing the founders got wrong. On the plus side, we were spared the Kissinger and Schwarzenegger candidacies.

GuyClinch March 25, 2011 at 12:58 pm

I was thinking he might be more suited to being her Press Secretary/Communications Director

BeWoot March 25, 2011 at 1:09 pm

Thanks. I just blew coffee through my nose.

V572 [REDACTED] March 25, 2011 at 12:43 pm

Needs moar subtitles. Islamic Reagan? Would that be King Hussein?

doloras March 25, 2011 at 7:57 pm

I THINK he was saying "Islamic rape camp", what with him going onto "15 year olds being raped" after that.

Negropolis March 27, 2011 at 6:28 am

I thought I heard "Islamic ray gun." Seriously.

CrunchyKnee March 25, 2011 at 12:43 pm

Right, right, coontrah, right, Lundun, right, earaqi lawr.

elviouslyqueer March 25, 2011 at 12:48 pm

Conventional wisdom that having a British accent makes you sound smarter = PWNED.

V572 [REDACTED] March 25, 2011 at 12:57 pm

Never understood why Teh Ladiez go all moist for these Cockney (if that's what it is) accents. There's a big difference between these guys and Hugh Grant.

WriteyWriterton March 25, 2011 at 3:32 pm

Grant's all twitchy, too. Upper-middle-class-twit-twitchy. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

JackDempsey1 March 25, 2011 at 12:44 pm

Print out the text of that guy's statement, laminate it and glue it onto a camper, and you got yourself a mobile Magna Carta.

King John, take THAT!

Schmannnity March 25, 2011 at 12:46 pm

"Incoherent anger." Stealing from the Tea Party platform.

He's still more coherent than Pammy Geller.

edgydrifter March 25, 2011 at 12:48 pm

So… our Murkin teabaggers are actually gay Limey skinheads? I can't say I'm surprised.

PocketsTheClown March 25, 2011 at 12:50 pm

Your move, France.

WriteyWriterton March 25, 2011 at 3:33 pm

Sshhhheck and mate, monsieur!

Swampgas_Man March 25, 2011 at 5:43 pm

Problem is, most of us wouldn't understand Le Pen whatever brand of French they spoke.

Negropolis March 27, 2011 at 6:31 am

His daughter is even more a slimbeall than he is because she should really know better. And, to think, these political parties are, whether they be in the Netherlands, England, or France, are increasingly getting very close to being major coalition parties in governnment…

genxr March 25, 2011 at 12:51 pm

Does he know where I can get a good MOOSLAMIC STEAK for less that $125?

Come here a minute March 25, 2011 at 12:51 pm

The line, right, where he says "want Britain to be about British", yeah, it was so good he had to say it twice.

metamarcisf March 25, 2011 at 12:52 pm

Was this video taken outside of a Dentists convention?

They're trying to Islamic LOL into their contra? and raking fifteen yarolds?

user-of-owls March 25, 2011 at 1:05 pm

Oy, whot?

SayItWithWookies March 25, 2011 at 12:54 pm

I wonder what the Picts would have to say about these thieving Celts trying to claim England as their own.

mavenmaven March 25, 2011 at 12:55 pm

How times have changed. There was a time when stupid violent wanking british punks at least made good music (well, one summer, anyway, 1977). Now they are just stupid shite.

DahBoner March 25, 2011 at 1:23 pm

Seriously, there ain't been nothing but gay, faggy nightclub music coming out of Britain for decades now…

WriteyWriterton March 25, 2011 at 3:38 pm

This is my opportunity to insert my "The Clash were poseurs!" observation and get certain people angry at me again.

Lascauxcaveman March 25, 2011 at 3:15 pm

The Sex Pistols? Well, loud, fun and exciting music, anyway. But I wouldn't exactly call it 'good.' They certainly didn't.

You're the only girl my heart beats for
How I wish that you were mine

Seriously though, thank you Brits for taking a bit of the heat off our crackpots.

Limeylizzie March 25, 2011 at 12:58 pm

When I was a skinhead, back in my early teens, it was all about the reggae music, you could even be a black skinhead no problem, times have changed.

GuyClinch March 25, 2011 at 1:03 pm

Great skinhead-related movie from 2006 called This Is England. Maybe you've seen it? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0480025/

DahBoner March 25, 2011 at 1:24 pm

The 90's are soooooooo retro now…

Limeylizzie March 25, 2011 at 1:29 pm

This was in the 70s. We didn't do disco , I went straight from Skinhead to Punk in about a year.

mereoblivion March 25, 2011 at 1:41 pm

How does My Beautiful Laundrette (1986) fit into the whole picture?

Limeylizzie March 25, 2011 at 1:48 pm

Well, London has had more of an immigrant population for longer, so the National Front was recruiting in the late 70s and 80s and Thatcher was always pushing anti-immigtation policies so the two were a match made in heaven.

user-of-owls March 25, 2011 at 12:59 pm

Didn't the English Defence League get relegated after last year's terrible outing?

WriteyWriterton March 25, 2011 at 3:42 pm

Well, yes, they did. They fired their coach, hired Jean Marie LePen, and bought the contracts of a bunch of morans from the French National(ist) team

V572 [REDACTED] March 25, 2011 at 12:59 pm

harry_palmer March 25, 2011 at 1:06 pm

I guess it was inevitable they'd miss a few when they shipped out their undesirables on the Mayflower or transported them to Australia.

user-of-owls March 25, 2011 at 1:07 pm

Anyone else wishing these guys had a role model to emulate? Like Sid Vicious maybe?

poncho_pilot March 25, 2011 at 1:38 pm

eh. Sid still needed his girlfriend to kill him. maybe if we splice in some Ian Curtis.

user-of-owls March 25, 2011 at 1:57 pm

No no, my friend, you have it backwards. Sid did Nancy then Sid did Sid.

poncho_pilot March 25, 2011 at 2:15 pm

my apologies, you are correct. i think i just wanted to make fun of Joy Division and jumped the gun.

At least they had subtitles in Trainspotting.

And a more upbeat tone as well.

metamarcisf March 25, 2011 at 1:35 pm

With the dead baby and all.

Limeylizzie March 25, 2011 at 1:10 pm

There is a large Asian/Indian/Pakistani immigrant and second generation population in Bolton and the surrounding area and it used to be a big coal mining area until Thatcher broke the mining unions and the mines closed , so there is an angry, unemployed white population that is becoming increasingly racist. My mother grew up in Burnley, about 20 miles away from where this rally took place, and we spent all our Summer holidays there, it used to be a gritty, working-class, mill town typical Industrial Revolution stuff, but it was always a great place. Used to have a great football team as well.

elviouslyqueer March 25, 2011 at 1:38 pm

Other than the part about your holidays, this sounds like a travel brochure for Wisconsin.

Negropolis March 27, 2011 at 6:36 am

I was about to say, myself, that it sounds like Metro Detroit. lol

hagajim March 25, 2011 at 1:13 pm

Is it just me…or are these guys gay skinheads?

WriteyWriterton March 25, 2011 at 3:45 pm

The Sheriff or Elviously might be best positioned (hee-hee) to answer your question.

Gopherit March 25, 2011 at 1:15 pm

Christ. First we get our teabaggers and now the English are developing these modern day redcoat-chavs. Maybe we can stage Revolutionary War II in Lexington and Concord up in New Hampshire and kill two flocks of birds with one stone……and a lot of explode-y things.

Beowoof March 25, 2011 at 1:17 pm

I do believe those Arabs did invent that damn algebra, (al-jabr). First they made his life miserable with math and now they want to finish him off with Sharia.

comrad_darkness March 25, 2011 at 2:12 pm

Please, "maths". Don't ask my why anyone would pluralize an abbreviation, but there you go.

ShaveTheWhales March 25, 2011 at 5:38 pm

I think it's because the word isn't "mathematic".

DahBoner March 25, 2011 at 1:17 pm

Offtopic, but have you ever noticed how Salespeople are living the American Dream?

They say in sales, you can make as much money as you want to make!

Wow!

What's the best way to get into sales?

Should I send in that coupon from the back of the comic book and get started selling "<>True Grit" and living the American Dream?

How about Real Estate?

God don't make no more dirt…

BornInATrailer March 25, 2011 at 1:18 pm

You know how everything sounds either a little bit cuter or a little bit smarter in an English accent? This would be the exception that proves the rule.

EDIT: Also, that is one right dumb cunt.

Excellent. A fresh spokesman to headline Tea Party rallies this summer in the colonies. He shares the dream and is more well-spoken than most of last year's crop, "Mooslamic Law" is spin genius, and will go over large with the Foxies..

Protest on the streets BEFORE you hit the pub. Rookie mistake.

Maybe if someone took these skinheads bowling, they wouldn't be such fucktards. Nazi punks fuck off, also.

DahBoner March 25, 2011 at 1:31 pm

The same thing once happened to me.

I remember mistaking an old woman for a trout stream in Vermont, and I had to beg her pardon.

"Excuse me, " I said. "I thought you were a trout stream. "

"I'm not, " she said.

I was really drunk at the time…

On behalf of my fellow Americans, I want to apologize for exporting teabagging to the rest of the English-speaking world. We've also exported it to Australia, where there remarks towards the woman Prime Minister show what our teabaggers would have been like if Clinton had won instead of Obama:
http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2011/03/24/317

"Standing in front of a banner that read "JuLIAR, Bob Brown's Bitch", Tony Abbott's speech was punctuated by chants of "ditch the bitch" and "liar, liar"."

Negropolis March 27, 2011 at 6:37 am

The EDL predates the Tea Party. I'm afraid we can't apologize for this one, my friend.

BlueStateLibel March 25, 2011 at 1:35 pm

On the bright side, at least the Brits can stop hating on the Irish.

Trinket March 25, 2011 at 1:38 pm

You're assuming he can read.

Beowoof March 25, 2011 at 1:39 pm

EDL is clearly recruiting by buying beer at the pub and then bringing them out to the demonstration.

comrad_darkness March 25, 2011 at 2:02 pm

Just looking at these people. How many illegitimate heirs did the Prince of Wales sire again?

comrad_darkness March 25, 2011 at 2:04 pm

Well, I'll give him credit, he's got all the same specifics as a teabagger when actually requested to give them up.

Guppy06 March 25, 2011 at 2:05 pm

At first, I thought Braveheart and The Patriot were all about Mel Gibson's secret fantasies of killing the English.

Then I learned that the English were just metaphorical stand-ins for the Jews.

Guppy06 March 25, 2011 at 2:08 pm

Actually, the question we should be asking ourselves is "Why can't the Log Cabin Republicans have the self-respect and testicular fortitude these Limeys have?"

imissopus March 25, 2011 at 2:08 pm

I like that the British media will actually call these guys out for their inarticulate, incoherent rage, whereas the American media covering Teabagger rallies will say that both sides make good points and should be given equal consideration. No, idiots, no they should not.

jdoleman March 26, 2011 at 7:59 am

Actually they are all on scooters too, only Vespas and Lambrettas. So they've got that twee bigot niche covered.

glamourdammerung March 25, 2011 at 2:15 pm

They are not as obese and not too lazy to walk on their own, so they do have at least a few good traits compared to our domestic reactionaries.

Negropolis March 27, 2011 at 6:41 am

They seem to be on the complete opposite of the phyiscal spectrum. Malnourished, undersized, and lacking vitamin D.

Our Tea Partiers can beat up your nationalist chavs! USA! USA!

DahBoner March 25, 2011 at 2:17 pm

History, bitches…

comrad_darkness March 25, 2011 at 2:20 pm

Did he say Mooslimic rayguns? or Mooslimic Reagans? Because I'd have to agree that much of the middle east leadership does have that certain cult like, old and doddering thing going on.

mrblifil March 25, 2011 at 2:30 pm

We'll just never be as knifecrime-y as they are.

mayor_quimby March 25, 2011 at 7:34 pm

Stabbing is just too messy for the US, we prefer shooting sloppily across parking lots, usually hitting random passerby on their way back from bible study, who were the first member of their family to go to college.

Negropolis March 27, 2011 at 6:42 am

But, we've got the guncrimey thing down to a T.

YasserArraFeck March 25, 2011 at 2:56 pm

"I would normally be kicking my girlfriend's head in. Or that of a gay man. Or a rival football fan. Or someone from the next village/town/city. Or someone who's a different colour to me. Or anyone who looks at me funny when I'm acting like an arsehole. Today I am marching for the right to be able to think I should get away with kicking muslim heads in as well. I have been told not to swear."

If that is a well spoken young British lad, I better study up on my British English if I plan on visiting across the pond.

We're weird little insular fucks, we are. It might have been all the invasions, it might have been the vanished Empire but we're a bit xenophobic. That's allowed. We fear the man across the sea. Thing is, once he comes to live in Britain he becomes one of us no matter his creed or colour. If he wants to join us in our national sport of fearing the man across the sea, fair enough. If not, we'll probably just whine when he leaves his mower out as we do everyone else. That's the way it generally is. Sadly there's a streak of full-bore racists from the capital to the coast in every direction and in every walk of life from the Crown to the coal-miner.

Our Daily Mail hooted "Hurrah for the blackshirts!"
A Conservative MP, Peter Griffiths, partly campaigned on the slogan "If you want a nigger for a neighbour, vote Liberal or Labour" in a 1964 local election.

Holy shit. As "a black", that is an amazingly racist turn of phrase, so direct and to the point, and it fucking rhymed on top of all that.
Even in 1964 your racists were ahead of American southerners! If George Wallace had run on that openly racist slogan, he might still be president today. I certainly wouldn't be getting my $100K yearly reparation check from the government.

We were getting better though. In some places. In some ways. More inclusive, more multicultural, less hateful. Then the banks fell and the wolves above came back in through the holes in the economy, and will try to turn us against each other again to take our minds off the same destruction of rights and services you're enduring.

Plus 100 for cockney rhyming slang!

The national sport of Manchester is "cars being stolen".

doloras March 25, 2011 at 7:59 pm

That's not Cockney, that's Manchester dialect.

Too bad a fine English Ale was wasted on such an illiterate douche bag.

Judging by that accent, I bet he's from the north of England, which would explain a helluva lot by itself. And, judging by the tracksuit, I'm betting this is one of those rare and elusive chavs I keep hearing about. What a bunch of ghoulish apparitions these bastards are. All emaciated and incoherent and Shaun of the Dead-like in movement and speech. If ignorance is bliss, these fuckers are in White English heaven.

Ignorance knows no national boundary, unfortunately. "Muslamic Law", indeed. Couldn't have said it worse, myself.

BTW, does the EDL have an outfit up in Northern Ireland? I'd really like to hear them make sense of the Irish. Is this one of those "the enemy of my enemy is my friend"-type deals where the folks they used to hate are now tolerated because they aren't the new enemy?

Jim89048 March 25, 2011 at 1:44 pm

But what was he saying? Aside from "muslamic" and "that's why all these people are here", I couldn't understand a fecking thing he was saying.

WriteyWriterton March 25, 2011 at 3:40 pm

A cricket match? One of the three-day kind? With the watercress sandwiches and everyone dressed in white and gin everywhere? Count me in! If not, feck it.

doloras March 25, 2011 at 7:56 pm

Basically what he was trying to say was NO SHARIA, but he was too drunk or stupid to remember the precise order the syllables went in.
