Britain First’s facebook page has been a busy place since allegations circulated that Jo Cox’s murderer shouted out the organisation’s name during the attack. But one comment about the possibility of the killer being a supporter of the political party has inadvertently summed up the fundamental flaw of Britain First as a whole. And Twitter is all over it.
The comment was noticed by journalist Sunny Hundal, who tweeted:
This comment completely contradicts the views of Britain First when it comes to violence committed by others, especially those who are Muslim. As we have previously reported the party espouses the ludicrous notion that “you are an extremist” if you agree with, or believe in, Islam.
So, by its own reasoning, any supporter of Britain First is now also a violent extremist. That is, if the actions of the few are held against the many. But as we see from the comment on its Facebook page, not everyone agrees with that logic when it’s applied to the party itself.
It seems Britain First believes it should not be held to the same standards it sets for others.
