I have a handful of people on facebook that occasionally repost some racist twaddle from the Britain First group..
I’m loath to simply unfriend or block these people for a variety of reasons but I have stumbled across the perfect way to deal with any nonsense that happens to crop up on my newsfeed..
This analogy seems utterly profound to me (apologies for those unable to follow the link, but I can’t find the video on youtube) and posting this video into the comment section is a simply therapeutic way to express my thoughts concisely and get on with the rest of my dayPosted 3 years agodannybgoodeSubscriber
The scary thing about BF is that people are reposting stuff without knowing a great deal about BF and the fact that it is a political party and not just a catchy name of some Facebook group.
It was founded by Jim Dowson who is credited with getting Nick Griffith and the BNP to where it is but they fell out so he has now set up BF.
If people have researched this stuff and still decided to post it well at least they know what much they are spreading but to blinding click like and share and give such parties the publicity they desire is unforgivable.
Same with UKIP – sure Nigel Farage is your mate down the pub and them Euro scum can f off etc but UKIP is also all for scrapping maternity / paternity rights, legislation protecting employees etc. Unfortunately people vote with no knowledge of what they are voting for.
