Farage ally: disability an “epidemic” and the public “should not see the disabled on television”

Tom Pride here reveals the complete lack of any kind of morality behind UKIP’s alliance with Korwin-Mikke’s party in the European Parliament. These are Nazi views within the meaning of the act, your honour. Their the pseudoscientific views on the evolutionary inferiority of women and racial senescence that permeated the European right, and much of the left, in the 19th century, and which led ultimately to the rise of the Nazis.

The attitude to women is fairly standard chauvinism, given a pseudo-scientific justification through citing evolution as a cause. The late evolutionary biologist and palaeontologist, Stephen Jay Gould, despatched this way of thinking in his book ‘The Mismeasure of Man’, which described and refuted the way Fascist and proto-Nazi ideologues had misused evolutionary theory to justify their own oppression and marginalisation of women and the lower classes, and the exclusion and murder of ethnic minorities.

Korwin-Mikke’s rant about the disabled is similarly based on eugenic notions that modern society, by allowing the disabled and racially unfit to live and breed, will result in humanity becoming increasingly weak, disease and senescent.

AS for stating that ‘gays are a gang of louts imported from abroad’, this seems to be the standard rhetoric from homophobic countries. You can hear it from Mugabe’s Uganda, where he was banging on about Blair’s government being run by the ‘gay mafia’.

But as offensive and ridiculous as Korwin-Mikke’s views are, they are shared by people in the British right. I’ve blogged before about how Sir Keith Joseph frothed about unmarried mothers being a threat to our stock, while one of the Kippers has urged the eugenic abortion of disabled children. Which no doubt explains why Farage’s party has allied with them. It also shows that Farage’s party really are ‘BNP-lite’ and Nazis in lounge suits, which no decent person should vote for

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the UKIP!)

UKIP’s new friends in Europe – members of the Polish KNP party – think disability is an “epidemic” and disabled people shouldn’t be seen on television because we should see only “healthy, beautiful, strong and wise people on our screens“.

The leader of the KNP – Janusz Korwin-Mikke – wrote the disturbing views on his blog.

But because his words were in Polish, it got little attention in the UK, even when Nigel Farage decided to ally himself in the EU with the far-right party.

Here’s an article in English with quotes from Korwin-Mikke’s blog:

Nigel’s allies in Europe have some pretty disgusting views on other things too.

Here are just a few of them:

“Democracy is the stupidest form of government ever conceived.”

“Women are dumber than men and should not be allowed to vote”

“Evolution has ensured that women are not too intelligent”
