    Just take a look at this. This is on the BNP's website, it is one of their news aticles on their front page. It refers to Pakistanis as 'Paedostanis'!

    'As you may know, we called for patriots to gather in and around Rochdale, to expose the corrupt practices of Rochdale councillors and the police, over their actions and inactions in regard to the nine paedostani’s that were convicted, last week in Liverpool, of gang-raping little white girls. '

    Wow how is this clear racism accepted? It's absolutly shocking. You can't insult a whole race because of a few people. And this is a serious political party, no one even cares about their obvious racism, people just carry on defending them. Imagine if this was the conservatives, liberal democrats, labor or UKIP. There would be OUTRAGE. Imagine if something like that was said about blacks and white, everyone would go crazy (and rightly so).
    You simply can't do that. I would understand if you insult a religion, but insulting a race is RACIST. People are born into their race, they can't do anything about it. In the article they use the term 'paedostani' many times.

    Edit: Wow infact this isn't even the first time, they've done it a lot, take a look at this:

    BNP racism is like Papal Catholicism, or bears-****ting-in-woods-ism. It's hardly shocking any more...

    It is shocking because they still should have to obey laws about not inciting hatred.

    So it's okay to use terms which are clearly racist? No one would tolerate it if that kind of thing was said about blacks or white (which is a great thing), so why is it acceptable to say it to Pakistanis? Are they sub-human? Is it their fault they're Pakistani.

    I'm shocked because atleast before they tried to hide it (even though we knew they're racist), but now they're just saying it straight up. And plus this is one of the UK's biggest politcal parties.

    People were saying it's not shocking it's to be expected, I was saying it is shokcing as we should demand even the BNP to obey the law and not say this sort of stuff.

    What they said isn't racist. They weren't referring to all Pakistanis as paedophiles. They were (childishly) referring to those criminals as paedophiles from Pakistan.

    RACISM? In the BNP? What shocking knavery! :rolleyes:

    I've recently learnt to my very great surprise that the Pope is not a protestant, and that bears have the utter nerve to defecate within our woodlands.
