MISUSE OF OUR LANGUAGE AND INSULTS OF PATRIOTS

Misuse of word meanings has been a common instrument of propaganda in politics for hundreds of years.

In the 20th century Stalin used the epithet "Enemy of the People" to persecute and often execute Russians whose only "crime" was to be perceived as a threat to the regime. Others were exiled to slave labour for this alleged crime, even though many had been working loyally in it.

Later Soviet satellites were set up with the title including the word "Democratic" as in DDR or the German Democratic Republic and that word is still used to a degree in Africa as in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

One thing you can be certain of is that if the title of a country has "Democratic" in it, it means the opposite.

When analysed these terms indicate that opposition to or questioning of the regime is not tolerated.

In smaller organisations similar tactics of word distortion are used, and indeed we have it in our party.

TRAITOR has been used to describe anyone in the party who disagrees with the leadership and that is one of the milder insults.

Other words such as "Searchlight Spies", "Reds" or "UAF infiltrators" are also unjustly used, basically as a means to ensure obedience or exclusion of anyone who has a problem with the hierarchy.

Democracy is another word abused by the leadership.
Excessive powers for the chairman and hastily convened meetings with resolutions passed with the help of dubious "proxy votes" are not democratic and another abuse of our language.

The leadership must realise that our loyalty is to our country, people and the party is just the vehicle for that, and the leader of the party has to show he is promoting these ideals.
To criticise the leader for any failures he has is not treachery it is a duty.
He is not the party. WE ARE.

A list of the people now supporting a change in leadership (and many of those expelled) reads like a roll call of the best in the party who by their actions in recent years have been responsible for our gaining two MEPs.

HARDLY TRAITORS OR SEARCHLIGHT SPIES!

THEY BY THEIR ACTIONS HAVE PROVED THEIR LOYALTY TO THE CAUSE.

Yes, we will have embedded people who wish to cause our party damage but they will be found among more recent members who exercise powers disproportunate to their length of membership.

WE MUST FIND AND RESIST THESE INFILTRATORS but--

DO NOT INSULT THE REAL PATRIOTS both in the party and expelled who have in the past built the party up.

AND DO NOT ABUSE OUR LANGUAGE.

Anita, this is a blog promoting free discussion.
It does not mean we necessarily agree with posts on it but if you believe in free speech you have to allow all shades of opinion so long as they are not offensive etc.

Chris, you know what I mean by offensive.

I do not mean different views but personal insults and bad language.

Dear LankyPatriot (13:19hrs):

OK, I've no problem with that.

The latest posting on Eddy Butler's blog is really shocking, especially coming from someone who knew Griffin so well for so long. It appears that the attempt to bankrupt Richard Barnbrook, is only one in a long line of Griffin's criminal actions.

Butler's article finishes with the following statement:
........................
"Remember that his usual method for resolving disputes is to ‘send the boys’ round to try and kick your door in. Nick Griffin is a very nasty piece of work."
........................

Personally from what we now know about Griffin, I think that may be the understatement of the decade.
