So, the BNP has been forced to allow ‘non-white’ members into their party. Back when the possibility of this was first mentioned, my Dad said it would be a good thing. I was a little surprised; like most folk I thought it would just be another way for this band of racists to continue masquerading as a political party.
“Ah, but what everyone should do when the BNP open their party up to members of any ethnicity, is join.”
I blinked. I rubbed my ears to make sure what they were hearing.
“…what?” I asked.
“If everyone who is opposed to the party JOINS that party, the party as it is will die. They won’t be able to keep operating in the way they do. Their far-right, fascist and racist ideologies will be forced out, as will they.”*
As far as the BNP is concerned, no person of a non-white ethnic background will join them anyway; this change in their constitution is just a legal loophole to keep them afloat. The BNP won’t really expect British citizens of various ethnicities/religions/skin colours/beliefs to join their far-right organisation. But if EVERYONE joined…
It’s not long until April, and I can’t think of a better and more fitting joke to play on those particular fools.
*I’m paraphrasing, my Dad probably wouldn’t use the word ‘party’ so many times in one sentence.
