A white Christmas?

This story vindicates why a free speech policy should work. Basically, it is the story of a BNP party at which the music was supplied by a black DJ. Rather than face the embarrassment of actually having to stand up and justify their odious beliefs, members either left the party or continued dancing and enjoying themselves in any case.

My favourite quote in the story is as follows: "But it was a bit difficult to say we were even the BNP. We even had to be careful what we said when we did the raffle so we didn't offend this guy.
What are you supposed to do? Tell him to clear off? It was very, very embarrassing."

All I can say to this is - cowards. The BNP ban membership to those not of British or European extraction, and they make highly offensive and racist statements regarding asylum policies, immigration, and make far-fetched claims about the integrity of our society being under threat. They are a racist party, and yet when they have to actually stand up and be counted, in terms of following through the logical nature of their positions, they shy away for fear of "offending this guy?".

Why is it acceptable to distribute propaganda around the country telling blacks to "clear off" but not when face-to-face with one? Why are they too ashamed to say you are the BNP in the presence of a black DJ? Because they have no testicular fortitude to do so. They are ashamed and embarrassed of their vile beliefs when faced with the consequences of their actions.

This should show up the hypocrisy of the party once and for all. Not only are they offensive, racist, and wrong, but also stupid.
