I was reading the comments this morning concerning Britain First and the perception that some people have that this site is working hand in glove with Britain First to promote them. As to be expected feelings are running high at this moment in time and the comments sadly sometimes get a little too personal and so Corsham Crusader is being kept very busy.
However, I noticed a comment that Corsham Crusader posted whilst I was busy thanking my lucky stars that I no longer have to worry about deciding what goes through and what does not. Anyhow here is the comment that Corsham posted that sums up this sites position quite nicely.
When I say we are non-partisan, I mean that the site doesn't support one organisation as we used to with the BNP.
We have offered a platform to all the nationalist parties and lawful rebellion etc, our forum has sections for the British Freedom Party, Freedom Democrats, British National Party and the National Front.
You are correct that we have a banner for Britain First but only because we thought it a good idea to give them some publicity as they were at the time a brand new organisation.
I think you may be confusing the fact that you constantly see Britain first articles on this site, Britain First officials in the comment section and Jim Dowson in our paltalk room with our promotion of them. The reason for this is that they are pro active and trying to reach out and talk to the nationalist community. They respond to questions posed by our commenters, they answer questions on paltalk and they submit articles to our site.
The situation is that for the last few months, ALL the above mentioned parties and groups have had exactly the same opportunities, it's not our fault that Britain First have taken those opportunities and the others haven't.
When was the last time you saw Nick Griffin or Andrew Brons answering questions in our comment section? That is a reflection on them and not Britain First.
We at the British Resistance have our own views on all the nationalist groups and just because we may post something from them doesn't necessarily mean we agree with them. We are watching closely at how the next couple of months unfold and then maybe we will nail our colours to the mast.
Hope that helps
Well done Corsham. Could not have put it better myself and you are of course right.
Britain First are not frightened to confront their enemies and have shown a welcome willingness to answer all questions put to them. Neither are they slow in picking up a trick, last night Councillor Kevin Edwards, their Welsh Coordinator called into a paltalk room for a friendly chat as he often does and I mentioned events in Wales.
This morning I receive an email from Kevin pointing me to this article on Britain First about the new Welsh leaflets they have had produced and letting me know that they have now raised enough money to have the table top banners and posters made. They are on the ball and we wish them luck.
One thing that saddens me is to see two people who I have the greatest respect for at each others throats over this issue. I can assure my Scottish Friend and my Welsh Friend that both of you are true, honest patriots and should not fall out personally over this issue so keep your comments courteous. You are both on the same side.
