The Worst of Britain: Nick Lowles of Hope Not Hate


"Hi! I'm an anti-fascist. Are you white and working-class? Then you're probably a racist bigot and an Islamophobe. Shame on you!... All ye people repent and join Hope Not Hate. Only that act will dissolve all the guilt you should have for  being white and middle-class like me. The working-class, of course, are now beyond redemption. Although I admit that I did patronise them until the Muslims came along."
According to Nick Lowles, the EDL is a massive threat. And that’s why he once gave the Government a good telling off for its lax and soft attitude towards ‘racists’ and ‘fascists’. Lowles says that the EDL ‘poses one of the greatest threats to social and community cohesion at the moment’. And if that’s true, then why oh why is ‘the Government a mere spectator, hoping, no, praying, that police can contain trouble’? This is strange. Aren’t Islamism, militant Islam and many other things Islamic even a teeny weenie bit of a threat to Community Cohesion? Isn’t the ghettoisation of Muslims by Muslims themselves also a threat to Embraced Diversity?

So it is strange that Nick Lowles has precisely nothing to say about these real threats to Community Cohesion and Diversity. Who am I kidding? This is not strange at all. Lowles’s championship of Muslim separatism is part of his campaign against Englishness. You know, racism, fascism, imperialism, whiteism, non-leftism and all the other things he hates about the English and England.

As I said earlier, because Nick Lowles is a Communist (the difference between Trots and Commies doesn’t make a difference to anyone except Trots and Commies), the EDL is not the only object of his leftist displeasure. Yes, the Government is at fault too. The ‘present Governments have shown absolutely no leadership in their attitude towards the EDL’. Is that a roundabout way of saying that Cameron and Clegg haven’t sat in the Cabinet office discussing the Problem of the EDL with His Supremeness, Nick Lowles? Is it also a euphemism for the Government not kicking the EDL’s arse by banning it? Or is it about the Government not imprisoning enough (!)EDL leaders in much-needed gulags for ‘fascists’, ‘racists’, ‘Islamophobes’ and all other non-leftists (except Muslims and perhaps black people)?

The problem is, apparently, that the Government and others ‘play down the EDL threat’. Nick Lowles, UAF/SWP et al don’t of course play up the threat of the EDL, do they? Of course they do! These people live and breathe anti-racism and anti-fascism. It gives meaning to their lives. It focuses the Struggle. It radicalises. It furthers the Revolution. It provides new student recruits. But most importantly of all, for Nick Lowles, it provides a good career and a steady and secure income. And who would begrudge poor Nick Lowles a job? Not only that. Lowles, or one of his mates, has proved beyond any shadow of a leftist doubt that Tommy Robinson has ‘far-right links’. And no one would ever accuse Trotskyist/Communist organisations of lying or distorting things in order to further the Cause or to defeat an evil enemy like the EDL.
