    Anti-fascist protesters broke into BBC Television centre ahead of British National Party leader Nick Griffin's appearance on Question Time.

    About 25 protesters were ejected from the building by police after breaking through a gate at the main entrance



    surely this wasn't the smartest thing to do.
    what did they want to achieve?
    It would be stupid to think its better to ignore the BNP instead of confronting it, ignoring them will only give them more reasons to whine, and it will also make them more popular.

    Yes. Ignoring fascists has such a proven track-record of working, hasn't it?

    let them talk, and then destroy their arguments with reason.

    this is a chance to make Griffin look like an idiot on national television, and yet people haven't realized that for some reason.

    Why only use one track, when there are many at one's disposal?

    When are you coming out of the closet and admit you're a fascist?

    when the clock strikes midnight, and the moon shines bright in the sky.

    That's not nice. Don't call Shav a facist. A jerk, maybe; but not a facist.*











    *- In the event that it's not obvious enough, I'm kidding around. Shav is not a jerk. A whacko, maybe, but not a jerk.**










    **- I'm kidding around. Shav is not a whacko. A nut, maybe, but not a whacko.***









    ***- never mind

    And that's what I suggested. Saying nothing doesn't work either.
    In fact, saying nothing (standing by) is one of the key factors to allowing attrocities to occur.

    Yes, he was. That was (part of) the joke.

    Perhaps the sight of you or one of your foul-mouthed responses would frighten them off?

    Have Obama silence them. He's good at it you know.
