A planned demonstration by The English Defence League in central Birmingham descended into violence as the group charged along New Street, close to the city's main train station. More than twenty men have been arrested.

right wing does not equal nazi’s. Far right is for freedom and personal liberty. The headline is a sham.

Back in America, we’re gonna settle shit like this with guns...and I want to be on the front-line! I’m horrified at what our country has become in 8 short months and I have no doubt that we will see a second Civil War in America is this Leftist crap isn’t stopped!

Funny how pro-shariah law Muslims are called “anti-fascists.”

The British State has basically declared war on behalf of its Muslim immigrants against native Islanders.

You’re correct on that one! NAZI is Nationalist Socialists, and the Leftist of the Left! Sorry, I didn’t write it, Thank God, but the British “newspapers” love their headlines, don’t they?

Right wingers (in the original meaning) were absolutist supporters of the French monarchy. Not much advocacy of freedom and liberty there.

The problem is that there is no link whatsoever between the Right of the French Revolution, when the terms Right and Left originated, and American-style conservatism.

OTOH, American liberals today are more or less directly descended from the French Left of the time.

My initial thoughts exactly.

Truth be told, the “antifascists” are probably ALL about fascism.

Like the OP, I too am an Anglophile, and hope the British can save their nation and culture from the 6th century Islamic primitives.

Looks like the “anti fascists” are the real fascists—Muzzies.

I don’t see how the indigenous British can stand it! Now the EU plans on sending another influx of foreign “refugees” to your shores?

How much more do they think the British will stand for? And what is keeping Brown in office??

I seem to remember reading that when Hitler came to power, he considered Christians and “Right Wingers” as his enemies.

Fascism is SOCIALIST, therefore, LEFTIST.

Brown is an unelected TWAT! But then, so is our President, however OBozo WAS elected by complete idiots who get their news and political opinions from “Entertainment Tonight” and “The Daily Show”. I cry (and pray) for America every day. I am sick to the gills at what is happening back Home! Obama makes Gorging Browlift look Conservative!!!!! And I wish I was joking...

I fully realize that...if Zippy had viewed Brown as a genuine lefty “comrade,” he might not have dissed him so badly.

What I can’t grasp is Labour’s transparent attempt to flood Britain with immigrants in order to set up new constituencies...and the locals—until now at least—have put up with it.

I watch the UK carefully because I have friends there, can’t stand Islam, and worry about it gaining a smilar foothold here.

Messed up title as the “Right wing” and “Anti-fascists” are the same people.

nice post...many freepers fail to see the convoluted evolution of right/left, facist/collectivist, democrat/republican etc

it is a very serpentine history and a lot of overlap

national Socialists were indeed Nationalistic (which is a right wing trait more often than it is only the Left), Socialist..sorta Indu-Oligarchic-Socialist, and quite a bit Facist

freepers eschew nuance and like things simple

just watch folks here draw a straight line from Thaddeus Stevens to Tom DeLay...lol

to say Nazis were as leftist as USSR or Mao is nonsensical and untrue but it’s fun to take a stab at it

Not least because, from his earliest street-fighting days and throughout his subsequent career, Hitler's enmity was directed above all to Bolsheviks and Marxists.

that enmity had much to do with his Jew hatred....he saw their involvement in Collectivism and blamed them all for it

that and some other peculiarities he had..maybe just plain old psychotic resentment

when I was a boy 20 years after the war the conventional wisdom was he had to pick someone...a target group...I never believed that

he really hated Jews viscerally and used his power to act on it..and he didn't just decide to go kill a few million of them for political strategy.

Looks a lot more like the English people are standing up agaist the Muslim scumbags that the coward ass leftie Governments flood into the UK,and are now openly attacking the British People! Well it looks to me also, the the British People are realizing it’s not just the IslamoFasciszts that need to be thrown out of Britain, but a whole lot of corrupt and scummy Government Leftie turds too!
Exile all their geneticly inferior asses, along with all the filthy Muslims that think they can take over by force, and if thety won’t go peacefully, them send them on their way to Allah by burning them to death in their “No Go Zones”.

The EDL is a group with links to extreme Fascist/racist British groups like Combat 18.
