Your Daily Nazi: Jewish Defense League Gets Down With English Nazis

According to Shaidle's hubby, Meir Weinstein and Co. are staging a meet-and-greet (a "live Hookup") with EDL (English Defense League) leader Tommy Robinson on January 11th. Tommy's real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, and he is:

...a former[BNP] British National Party member who has served 12 months’ imprisonment for assaulting an off-duty police officer.

The BNP has been described as an "openly Neo-Nazi" party, and its founder John Tyndal once stated that "Mein Kampf is my bible". So: strange bedfellows indeed.

PS. It looks like Tommy's BNP roots recently got him booted from the EDL:

After Searchlight’s exposé of Yaxley-Lennon, the EDL held a series of emergency meetings and discussions, while Yaxley-Lennon went into hiding and his parents threatened to throw him out. The group has begun using Ulster loyalist language and imagery and attempting to forge relationships with people from one of the notorious football hooligan gangs in the province.

It is also in the midst of a bizarre internal dispute, with one faction lined up behind a convicted German nazi terrorist with a black wife and his friend, a disgraced former loyalist terrorist. Rudderless for almost three weeks, the EDL finally issued a statement on 12 July, acknowledging growing grievances and announcing a new structure of regional organisers. The statement concluded that “the English Defence League is ready to move on to the next step in our counter Jihad fight”.

PPS. I am assuming "live hookup" means done over skype or by video feed. I doubt Mr. Robinson has the kind of dough to spring for a plane ticket to Toronto. His criminal record might also make travel difficult.

Why am I not the least bit surprised that the white supremacists are now openly aligning themselves with neo-nazis.

So I assume that he's hiding in their basement?

Happy New Year, BCL.

And the JDL, it seems, like the EDL, is apparently devolving into warring factions.

I thought that youtube about the BNP had been taken down, but it can still be found:

I'm no fan of the JDL and I thingkthis decision, if accurately reported, is a disgrace....but "white supremacists????"

Oswald Mosley. - Dr. Dawg

As a present day threat, it is not Nazis, in Britain or anywhere else.

That Nazis are a recurring theme on so-called progressives blogs suggests how out of touch with modern concerns bike riding pinkos really are. ;)

I was referring to the Shaidles.

out of touch...pinkos

The 1950s called. They want their rhetoric back.

Reality begs to differ with you Paul:

"According to preliminary estimates, 37 people died and no less than 368 were injured in such attacks in 44 regions of Russia this year," the source said. Sova monitors cases of racism and xenophobia."
