Why do we think the BNP are "right wing"?
'We think the BNP are right-wing' because that is the label which society uses to describe political groups with their views. They are right-wing because they call themselves right-wing. They are right-wing because the parties which are closest to them politically, are right-wing. They are right-wing because they say that they are anti-left-wing.
We think the BNP are right-wing because they are right-wing. Only someone who spends an inordinate amount of time reading books on politics, would need to ask that daft question.
And please BD, don't throw at me the old bollox about Fascists always being historically very strong supporters of State Monopoly Capitalism, therefore it somehow suggests that "they might be socialists".
And yes, the new neo-Nazi MEP for Yorkshire and the Humber cut his political teeth in a party called the National Socialist Movement, but he has never been a socialist.
The only reason his party was called 'National Socialist' because the fascist in the party, idolised Adolf Hitler (it was formed on Hitler's birthday ffs) and the German Nazis called their party ' The National Socialist Party'. But they were never socialists.
And the only reason the Nazis called themselves 'National Socialists', was because socialism was very popular in the 1920s. And fascists are always liars who gain influence by misleading people. End of.
