Usual Nazis at the Pegida Rally in Newcastle

March 3, 2015

Hope Not Hate has an article covering the participation of various Far Right and racist groups at the Pegida rally in Newcastle last Saturday, Newcastle: Just another Nazi rally . Pegida claims to be a non-racist organisation of European patriots resisting the Islamisation of their homelands. Its slogan in Germany, where it began, is ‘Kant Statt Koran’, ‘Kant Instead of the Qu’ran’, referring to the great German Enlightenment philosopher, Immanuel Kant.

As the article shows, many of the people marching definitely weren’t supporters of European rationalism and the Enlightenment. They were the same old Nazis and Islamophobes, who definitely did not stand for reason, education, peace, equality, democracy and racial and religious tolerance, the fundamental values of the thinkers of the Age of Reason. They included instead Donna Treanor, an activist in the British Movement; Mike Whitby, the leader of British Voice, founded by Nick Griffin; Paul Weston of the EDL; and Adam Walker, the new Fuhrer of the BNP.
