Like minds think alike, and failures tend to flock together.
Case in point: Matthew Heimbach has reached out to a similarly laughable cadre of poseurs, the New British Union.
Yes, they’re aiming to be the reincarnation of Oswald Mosely’s British Union of Fascists– the Hitler fans whose lasting legacy was running away at the Battle of Cable Street– and they… wait, did we say “they”? Sorry. We meant this one guy, Gary Raikes.
… please enjoy this ‘on the buses’ picture of a grown man playing dress up. He’s started a new club called New British Union (NBU). What really makes this photo great is the expression on the guys face – he means business!!! It’s another lunatic group who are hoping to be led to the fascist promised land by the zombie corpse of Oswald Mosley.
The New British Union is probably going to wind up as a footnote in the list of “ridiculous political jokes,” right after George Hutchins’ National Independents Movement. That fact hasn’t gotten in the way of Heimbach, who excreted a typically flowery, tl;dr word salad for the NBU’s website. Take a look for yourself. Please be careful when reading this if you have a full stomach.
Given that the Virginia Flaggers are still friends with Heimbach, we’d like to know how much they appreciate the support of someone who professes to be inspired by Corneliu Codreanu and the Iron Guard— the same fascists who were so consumed with anti-semitic violence that the German wehrmacht had to step in and hold them back.
Let’s close out this post with a tune by Oi Polloi, who know how to deal with fascists:
