Ed2001 - not everyone who holds a dissenting view to your own is a troll.
My point is this:
You can't fight the politics of hate with hate. That will only bolster their support by generating sympathy from those who might not otherwise offer it. This is happening already simply because like it or not, there are groups of people who feel that the current political climate alienates them. That group is white, working to middle class English, maybe more likely to be male but not exclusively.
Every time you use hate to fight the BNP, you only serve to highlight that groups' sense of alienation because you create diametrically opposed arguments; in essence, the BNP's far right message is countered with one that is regarded as being far left/liberal and in doing that, you get people thinking.
You have to address the reason why people are being switched on to the BNP and you cannot do that whilst you're still on a political rant.
You think Griffin is a buffoon? You could not be more wrong - he got onto Question Time for crying out loud; the guy was educated at Cambridge and has a degree in law. This is exactly what happened in Germany in the 1930s; the political elite regarded Hitler as a silly little man, while the people, with genuine grievances, listened to what he had to say.
We have to fight and beat this guy on political grounds which means listening to what he has to say and to what the people who voted for him have to say.
We ignore them at our peril.
