    Would you consider showing support of UKIP openly at the presence of someone from Eastern Europe offensive to them?
    Like showing support of Hitler in front of Jewish people (obviously to a lesser extent than this, I mean more maybe when he was first around, before he began concentration camps?)

    Not in the slightest. For it to be offensive UKIP would have to be discriminatory, openly racist or something along those lines. Farage was on the radio yesterday and revealed UKIP's immigration policy. It involves a points system and allowing only the best into Britain. It's a reasonable point of view to hold, it's not offensive to Eastern Europeans.

    Ye just put yourself in their shoes. I even feel uncomfortable around ukip supporters and I was born here lol.

    Especially since a lot of ukip supporters are actually racist. Look at the interviews of average ukip supporters. The policies are alright but a lot of the supporters are pretty much racist.

    UKIP isn't racist. It is this vilification of a party with millions of supporters that creates the hatred. I don't agree with UKIP on every point but I wouldn't call them racist. Similarly, I wouldn't call the Greens or Labour Communists.
