Nick Griffin ate Barack Obama's hamster
WTF indeed. Our starting point is
The US Department of Homeland Security is investigating whether Jared Loughner, who has been charged over the attack, in which six people died and 13 were wounded, was connected with the racist and antisemitic organisation American Renaissance.As well it might. A fruitloop has attempted to assassinate a US congresswoman. A Democrat — albeit a seemingly fairly conservative one. Of course the investigating authorities are going to be checking out all the plausible and even implausible angles. I mean, didn't our own dear police force feel it necessary to check out the Blue-Rinsed Nonce of Bristol in connection with the death of Jo Yeates? Just routine, Sir. If you're innnocent you have nothing to fear.
Sonia continues with a broad, rambling attack on AmRen including its various contacts with Nick Griffin and other UK "far-righters". All fascinating stuff, including, Gordelpus, a little aside about Savitri Devi, but bog all to do with the matter at hand. What's this got to do with Loughner and his shooting spree? All is revealed near the end of the piece
American Renaissance has denied any knowledge of Loughner. “No one by the name of Loughner has ever been a subscriber to American Renaissance or has ever registered for an American Renaissance conference,” Taylor [AmRen head honcho] stated yesterday.That's it.
Actually cleverer than it looks, this stuff. If Sonia's ploy is successful, this will be repeated as a meme across the Antifashosphere. Once the content — or lack of content — has been stripped out, it will become an "established fact" that the BNP was involved in the assassination attempt on Gabrielle Giffords.
Indeed, the process has already started. See this Lancaster Unity comment thread.
Good stuff this politics, innit?
Sonia is, I assume, the woman currently married to the celebrated Gerry Gable, who has been this country's leading antifacist tribune since Oswald Mosley was in short trousers ?
