    Or do you believe that they are the true fascists?

    Unite against fascism are undemocratic and violent.

    They have shot themselves in the foot time and time again by acting like violent animals at protests, whilst BNP activism goes on peacefully (in fact BNP activities do not need policed, only when the UAF appear).

    This.

    I stopped supporting UAF after I realised it was a front for Communist Terrorists.

    So long as their protests are done legally, I'm behind them all the way.

    Even if not- I'm not going to complain about Griffin's lunatics being denied a platform. UAF aren't anti-democratic- they're no different from any other pressure group that happens to form rallies and counter-protests.

    They're not exactly engaging in voter fraud, are they?

    Although the message should be good, I do wonder if they have a tendency to overstep the mark and violate free speech.

    I am sure the BNP are delighted with that image.

    Seen a report on the BBC where a moron from the UAF kept talking about the protesters being BNP, which is [testicles].
    They had signs saying we are not the BNP, and anti BNP placards(much the same as the UAF's) and black and white unite!

    Clearly not hard core football lads, just a bunch of young kids with something against Islam.
    Reports of when the trouble started, of black and Asians lads attacking anyone white. Now that may be partially true, or not true at all, but it does not matter, that is the story which will gain credence.

    A terrible photo of a mob of Asian youths dragging a union jack flag of an elderly man, more propaganda for the BNP.

    Not long after the 2001 riots, the BNP got it's first council seat.
    Pictures of single white males being beaten by Asians is a massive boost for the BNP, and they were not even there.

    The event gave the image, true or false, of a very small number of white lads sticking up for ''ingerland'', and getting the [faeces] beaten out of them by British hating Asians. That is the image which will be seen across Britain, even if false.
    The UAF are the biggest bunch of [idiots] ever. They have in a single day made race relations even worse in the UK.
    I fear next time some real football lads might turn up, and we will see some terrible race riots.
    A few hundred more thousand votes for the BNP in the bag, well done the UAF.

    I think the word fascist is overused and gets waved at anyone vaguely authoritarian.

    I think the BNP have definite fascist leanings because of their heavily interventionist, and protectionist economic policy and their tendency to believe in the primacy of the rights of the 'nation' over individual rights. Those are the classic traits of fascist government.

    In contrast, as far as I can tell (and I don't pay much attention to it so I could be wrong), UAF tends to be dominated by left wing authoritarians. The main differences here being that they're uninterested in any imagined concept of nationhood and tend to be actively socialist. So not fascist, but certainly strong authoritarian tendencies.

    Which one is worse? They're both burdened by idiotic economic policies and strongly authoritarian tendencies. I suppose UAF has one up on the BNP because at least it isn't racist. Either one running the country would probably be an immediate emigration event for me.

    I wouldn't call that fascist. The UK and most of Europe has been built on the view of "for Queen/King and country". Soldiers put their life on the line for their country and the freedom the country gives.

    Always seemed to me that UAF had a very obvious socialist agenda. Easy enough to use something that nobody wants to disagree with (RACISM IS BAD) to get people on board.

    I don't support the BNP but I think it's counter-productive to respond to them in the way that UAF do. Think Yin/Yang.
