    Before I would have said neither. It is now evident that the pretense of peacefully protesting against 'Islamic Extremism' is swiftly being left behind & they are now simply targeting Islam. As can be seen in Tommy Robinson's Christmas message & EDL Leader: Guramit Singh's latest Peterborough speech. This actually scares me, before I thought they were a joke, but now that they are targetting all of Islam, I think I am going to have to get out their & march too. The UAF now actually represent a real struggle against Fascism.
    We live in a democracy - just like Muslims can come here and protest for Sharia, people can protest against religion if they so wish. Except people like UAF think they decide who should be able to protest.

    I dislike them both but if I really had to choose then EDL on the basis that I agree more should be done to aid their *main* and *official* cause, and they're not massive hippocrites.

    Sorry preaching hatred against a racial/religious group is not apart of democracy, that is fascism.

    Hmm.

    No.

    I hope the police kick the crap out of both of them on as many occasions as possible.

    The UAF are actually quite funny in how paradoxical they are. They are apparently against the free speech of groups like the EDL, which seems rather fascist in itself. I don't agree with nationalism or the EDL either.

    I would, due to certain issues, be forced to side with the UAF. Not that they're particularly great people as it stands though but between a bucket of crap and a crate of crap I'll take the bucket.

    Neither, I hate them both. I hate how UAF are seen as OK because they are supposedly "anti-fascism and anti-racism". Yeah, so anti-fascism that they will assault you if you don't agree :rolleyes:

    Too many people are basing their opinions on the 'Old' EDL stance, Just watch EDL Leader Stephen 's (AKA Tommy Robinson) most recent speech in Petersborough.

    I quote him as saying "Islam has never been a religion of peace & it never will be!."
    So much for only opposing Islamic extremism & not the peaceful Muslims. Apparently they don't even exist.

    Against a race, yes it is. Against a religion. No it's not. They are completely within their rights to protest against religion. Which from what I can see, is what they do.

    Sure they have some ignorant toads within them, that take it a step further and jump on the band wagon... but that's just like the student fees riots.

    Personally, I side with the UAF.
    Oh, you mean the bigoted retards who want to exercise their freedom of speech to crush the freedoms of others? Don't be stupid. They are the real fascists.

    I don't like either of them but I'd side with the UAF simply because the EDL are scum and I'd never see myself chanting racist rhymes, making nazi salutations and intimidating people.

    actually the EDL members are heavily against nazis, they remember britain fought the nazis. go on the EDL facebook page and talk to them and see what you think - youll see the odd racist member getting told hes a racist tosser by all the others.

    the UAF on the other hand have anti-semitism embedded in their far-left extremism.

    You believe that targeting hatred at a religious group is legal?
