IT WAS A BIT OF A COCK-UP ..HE SOUNDED WHITE OVER THE PHONE Dec 6 2004
BNP MAN'S AMAZING ADMISSION
By Daniel Thomas And Greig Box
BNP members who mistakenly hired a black DJ for their Christmas party proved yesterday they were not just racist but STUPID.
Official Bob Garner said: "There was a bit of a cock-up. The chap who booked him didn't realise. The DJ sounded white on the phone."
Some members of the far right group were so outraged by the blunder they walked out of the hotel where their party was staged.
But what I found interesting is that in deference to the DJ's skin colour:
... those that stayed had to keep their bigoted beliefs secret instead of parading them in end of year speeches.
"Traditionally someone stands and says what's happened in the year or in the elections. 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.
You know if you truly believed in the supremacy etc. etc. of the "native" white race why would you be embarassed about forcing a lowly immigrant black to listen to your diatribes? Perhaps he'd get the message and go back to "bongo bongo land".
I can't work out if this story shows that English civility has penetrated even the most radical and racist circles or if the BNP actually fears letting non BNP people know what nonsense they believe. (via Harry's Place)
