Here they co-opt Pastor Niemöller to their own distorted ends.
Oh and what a distortion it is.
My right to free speech.
Well as you make no mention of the right of others to free speech then we can assume you are not really talking about free speech as a common right for all.
My culture and my history.
No one can come for your history. That's just bonkers. As for British culture well that evolves and has evolved hopefully to the point where it can shrug of violating the rights of others.
Nothing to be proud of by having an empire is there? Not if you're decent....
My pride and my national identity and all the things that make me who I am.
Pride in what?
Your national identity? So the state is going to stop referring to as British then. That's bonkers.....
The last part of that statement is utterly stupid as is
My childrens' future.
Your childrens' future? What does that even mean?
So let's pretend that Britain is heading to be a Stalinist state. Typical trick of the nutjob right.
The biggest distortion is the use of the word 'my' throughout that little speech.
Look at the original wording of Pastor Niemoller's statement.
Pastor Niemoller wrote:First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for me,
and there was no one left to speak out for me.
This statement clearly indicates that if you don't care about the serial violation of the rights of other groups
, then one day your rights may be violated.
The BFP's nonsense is shitheadcentric. It is only concerned with the dubious claims that your own rights are being violated. It has no concern at all for other groups.
