Hope Not Hate Laughs as Polish and British Nazis Campaign for ‘Vote Leave’

The anti-racist, anti-religious extremism site, Hope Not Hate, has also been having a good laugh at the spectacle of Polish and British Nazis, including Kevin Layzell, campaigning in London the other day to get everyone to vote to leave the EU. This would obviously be something of an own goal for the Poles. They’re here through the provision in the EU constitution that allows EU citizens to move freely around Europe. As Hope Not Hate points out, this presumably means they all want to be deported.

It also undermines some of the daft conspiracy theories about the secret nature of the EU. Some of the madder Eurosceptics argue that the EU is really a secret Fascist state, similar to the attempts by the Nazis during the Second World War to present the Axis and the Nazi occupation of western Europe and its puppet regimes as a trans-national superstate to protect Europe from Communism. Oswald Mosley tried drumming up support for something similar after the War under the slogan, ‘Europe a Nation’. The EU isn’t a Fascist creation, and was set up in opposition to such aggressive nationalism. And nobody was interested in Mosley’s ideas either, although he made much of having the support of surviving Nazis.

But this raises an interesting point which contradicts the whole idea of the EU as a Fascist state. If it was, then why are all the Nazis like Britain First, Kevin Layzell and the rest of them trying to oppose it? After all, if it really was a return to the Nazi Reich, and Oswald Mosley’s ‘Europe a Nation’, you’d think they’d all be enthusiastically for it.
