Do you assume all BNP sources are lies? Watch

    I don't think I really trust sources from any political party. They are all biased and spun out and exaggerated to front the agenda of that particular party. If you want information, take it from an objective source.

    Vague question. Very vague. They're a political party which has core beliefs that don't sit easily with the mainstream, so they have to resort to frightening people into adopting their psych. Unfortunately the BNP rely almost entirely on victim-complex led propaganda to achieve this aim. I doubt a paragraph of anything they've typed has been 100% true.

    Then again, isn't this the case with all the other political parties too :rolleyes:

    No, but it doesn't bother me either way. If enough people ever are retarded enough to vote a BNP government into power, then as far I'm concerned the rest of us deserve it for not having educated those ignorant enough to be brainwashed by right-wing monkies.

    The BNP are not "right-wing.".....On some things they are to the right of politics. e.g. wanting capital punishment for murderer's and a tougher stance on immigration, but on other things - for example opposing the privatization of the Health Service - they are to the left of politics. A lot of their politics are quite socialist tbh.

    Annoys me when the media keep harping on about BNP being on "the extreme right." "Far-right" doesn't scare people enough, so let's call'em "extreme-right." Yeaah!:rolleyes:

    *monkeys.

    The BNP are socially authoritarian, and economically utterly stupid. Why would anyone want a BNP government?

    Oh, and the labels of 'extreme right' and 'far right' are academic terms which have backing for their use. I don't know anyone who considers the BNP to be extreme right. If you are interested in far right wing politics, you should read some Cas Mudde.

    I don't view them as being on the "extreme right" or even the "far right"- but for the policies you've mentioned and other policies they've adopted I do see them as being right-leaning and socially conservative as the poster below you stated. Essentially they're a bit mixed up because they've taken policies from both end of the spectrum and mashed them together (like some sort of crap centre party- I'm not saying that centre parties are a bad idea though!).

    And yes as somebody has said, they're economic policies are fairly retarded- trying to make Britain rely solely on its own industry will never work...

    Not really.
    I don't think they have to make much stuff up when there is, quite simply, loads of statistics and data to pick and chose from that gives credence to their view point on immigration...

    I think the BNP's reporting is probably more on the mark than some of the news sources. They'll say stuff that the BBC wouldn't dare to say because it's not politically correct, even though it's obviously true and a lot of people probably know so even if they wouldn't admit to it, especially if it's immigration related.

    I think I've read more lies and twisted half-truths ABOUT the BNP than I have FROM them. I think it's their opponents that are clutching at straws more.
    I mean, if they're (the BNP) so hopelessly wrong, people would see right through it and not vote for them, right? So why do the main parties feel the need to scare us about the BNP all the time, what are they so frightened of?

    I think the BNP are MORE honest than the other parties. They don't try and hide what they think, they say it straight-up, you know what you're getting with them, unlike Teflon Tony and the spin-merchants of the other parties.
    most of the BNP information I have heard are from anonymous sources which upon investigation are found to be false

    yet people still believe it therefore we need to make sure that the public are aware of the propaganda of the BNP because their view are racist while the other parties aren't

    to answer the first question though yes I do assume

    It's like how people always just say "lolol daily fail" whenever the Daily Mail is mentioned as a source. Papers aren't allowed to just lie. Plus all papers pick and choose what figures to print to stay in line with their political leaning. The Guardian is about the most biased paper there is, especially on climate change issues.

    Generally yes, although they are often far from being outright lies in the same way that detractors' comments about the BNP are often far from being rational criticisms.
