The UKIP Carnival In Photos: Pinko Jew Boy Nigel Farage Is Prig Of The Dump In Crap Croydon
SO. UKIP staged a carnival in Croydon. All carnivals are crap. This one was no exception.
In 2011, UKIP’s party’s director of communications and European candidate, Patrick O’Flynn, told Daily Express readers that London’s Notting Hill Carnival was a “propagandist message” and should be shut down. It’s not. It’s got no message. It’s just cramped, dull and full of people pretending to have al fresco fun. It rivals only Zurich for its cloying sense of civic pride. And that’s in neat and tidy Switzerland where they understand it if you want to kill yourself.
UKIP’s carnival would be a monocultural village fete on wheels. UKIP, the Party that dreams of Leni Riefenstahl directing episodes of Midsomer Murders (we all know who did it; just high time everyone else knew it, too), staged its carnival. The party booked a band of steel drummers (trad jazz for the ethnic vote), who left when they found out they’d be playing Yellow Bird for Nigel Farage and his supporters. But before the UKIPers had time to stick Max Bygraves singing Under the Coconut Tree on the gramophone, a gang of intolerant protesters turned up to scream that the UKIP party was intolerant.
One banner declared: “We are Romanians and we don’t feel comfortable with your racism.”
We’re not sure how being Romanian makes you especially intolerant of racism. The European Roma Rights Centre reports:
The Romanian Secretary of State for Minorities within the Ministry of Education has stated he would “not send his child to a school where there was a significant share of Roma.”
In 2013, Der Speigel reported:
Outrage has erupted among advocacy groups in Romania after the state channel TVR broadcast an anti-Semitic Christmas song calling for Jews to be burned in a chimney. According to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA), the song ran on a Dec. 5 broadcast by the rural-targeted TVR3 channel.
You can see the broadcast here.
No. It’s not being Romanian that makes you an anti-racist. It’s being a sensitive, confident human being that does that. Many Romanians in the home country would think UKIP a bunch of Jew-boy pinkos.
Farage had been scheduled to pop up and show us how much redder in he face he’d got that day (by the time of the election, and with a decent dry spell, Farage’s arrival on the telly will be heralded with a health warning to adjust your set lest it melt). But Nige never showed, despite Winston McKenzie, a former UKIP leadership contender and ex-boxer, saying that he was on his way. McKenzie later explained why Nigel never arrived:
“It’s not a case of being scared. It’s a case of realising you are a responsible husband and former smiley man and the leader of a political party. There’s certain situations that you avoid.”
He then aded:
“Croydon, which was once a nice place to shop, has now become a dump. How can you [expect] an international leader to turn up somewhere he feels unsafe?”
Eh? What country is Farage a leader of, and can we sink it?
