"White genocide imminent".

Etc.. etc... :eek4:

Some pretty bizarre stuff on this, courtesy of UKIP North London.

Interesting to see how street-level UKIP really thinks.

Where the BNP went. :lol:

Oh deary me!

They also seem to be a fan of a gentleman called Joshua Bonehill. He recently spoke at a BNP meeting (indeed, UKIP North London retweeted a video of it - I guess they felt the message was relevant to their party?!)

A bit further down the feed, UKIP North London appear to have tried to get young Josh into all sorts of trouble after he apparently breached bail conditions by using Twitter. Confusing relationship. :confused:

It's fake by the looks of things. Not surprising either.

All fake. Sad people jumping on bandwagons who like to exercise cliches and myths about political parties they don't like. I've seen fake Tory, Labour, Lib Dem, UKIP propaganda all over the internet and it's putting false views into peoples minds.

If that is the case, it is surprising to see the number of UKIP supporters - including Councillors, Parliamentary candidates and Branch offices - who follow the group.

Quite obviously a fake account.

Most of your last political threads have been petty attacks at UKIP, but I haven't heard a peep from you about the hundreds of cases of young girls being sexually assaulted that were hushed up by Labour councils to avoid being politically incorrect.

Not obvious to all the UKIP members who are following it...

Well at best I'd say they were following it because they saw UKIP and wanted to show support. At worst it raises disturbing questions about UKIP's organisation and members....

With all due respect, the seriousness with which the authorities treat sexual assault cases has never been super super high. In the USA especially.

My point is, this should not be used to score cheap political points.

Besides, I doubt that your average Kipper gives a toss about rape victims usually. But, y'know, when men of Asian origin are involved... But of course, I'm just theorising here.

"Political correctness" means not using racial slurs and treating people like they are beneath you on account of their race, gender, or sexuality. I don't understand how this conflicts with policemen etc doing their job properly.

Poe's Law wouldn't work if the people being made fun of didn't look like a joke themselves.

Bonehill appears to be an equal-opportunity hater, so 'fake' isn't exactly the right description - more like 'provocative' or 'inflammatory'.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joshua_Bonehill

The tweets may be 'fake' but they are supported and retweeted by lots of UKIP people and Bonehill has spoken at UKIP events in London.

I think this represents the reality of UKIP thought processes under the thin veil of 'nice guys really' tripe they spin out.

More likely it was set up by this Joshua Bonehill guy as a way to gain followers rather than as a smear campaign. Pretty much everything he tweets is retweeted on this account.

If that is true, why did this account 'report' him to the police (via Twitter) for breaching bail conditions?

Well now I don't know what to believe. Maybe the account was hijacked by a more extreme Kipper who had access to it. It definitely doesn't look like it was set up as a smear.

The reason the fake has worked on parts of the media (if it is a 'fake' exactly) is that it is believable - from 'bongo bongo land' to 'dirty ****', the public statements not of fraudsters, but of senior UKIP officials, have blazed a trial of extreme right wing nuttiness, xenophobia and 1950s-style homophobia and sexism, so that people who wish to pose as UKIP and make barmy extreme utterances are hard to distinguish from the real thing.

It's also unclear, despite UKIP's denials, that this guy isn't part of UKIP. He has reportedly spoken at UKIP meetings and his tweets are being retweeted with applause by kippers.

Getting a bit tired now of people clutching at straws to discredit UKIP. There was a former Lib Dem councillor a while back who set off bombs across his home town - the guy was basically a terrorist - yet barely anyone heard about it because the media only seems to be bothered by stories that make UKIP look bad.

There was also a Labour councillor who claimed that he had sex with, and fathered a child with, a green alien, but also received very little media coverage.

Had a UKIP councillor said that, Twitter's lefty brigade and the panel of Mock The Week would have gone on about it for months.
