Right wing hijack?

As a decent and balanced, law-abiding citizen, I hope that our troops are going to be safely withdrawn from Eastern theatres of 'war' soon after some of the heaviest fighting since WWII.

I hated the notion of our country being 'forced' to go to war years ago by the Govt, and especially against International Law (I think that the UK Govt acted like eunuchs and caved in to US pressure for oil/arms deals and building contracts etc)- which was a Resolution catchpoint of Gulf 1? But now the lads ( and lasses) are there, so be it, I can't change that.

And when these youngsters come home, whilst most lazy-minded civilian dick****s and chavs at home are too busy voting for X-Factor and not another Govt - I think it's right that they should have their morale boosting parades in recognition of their having risked their young lives and suffering extreme stress and danger..

This is where I have a problem-

These homespun parades and marches are always hijacked- as our flag has been/ is- by the dumb, boorish right-wing extremists. And worse- they fail to see that many of these soldiers, sailors and airmen, are non-white (VC winner Beharry Johnson and the Ghurkas notwithstanding)!!

Like a thick flotsam of 1920's/30's Brown/blackshirt clones (the shirt colours seem ironic?), the English 'Defence' League (EDL- surely vile friends of the NF or Combat 18 etc?) gang together in wannabe-hardmen gangs, swagger endlessly and sing football songs comprising taunting, racist lyrics, they get drunk (or stay sober) and offer...yep- nazi salutes and thinly-veiled violence in order to provoke the non-white residents, Police, media or leftist demonstrators from the Uni's and socialist groups etc.

Don't neo-nazis, in their homo-erotic military garb, see the sheer hypocrisy of their idiotic 'stance' - thaaaaat the n.a.z.i.s are whom the British fought against in 1940, thus making them the traitors!?...durrrrrrr. Their embittered, overblown rhetoric and sour perversion of facts on their 'history' forums only confirm it.

I am an American citizen, who grew up idolizing British pop culture, the intervening years of self-education regarding the worldwide right-wing movement began when I read about the ANP and Rockwell's trip to merrie old England in the 1960's.

As the United States and the British have pretty much stuck together, in some ways throughout the 20th Century, in a general sense, when the post-9-11 world began

I had an eerie sense of deja-vu....

I wanted to post this image, not as an attack on anyone, but to show the sheer ignorance on both sides of the Atlantic, although the image is no doubt of a Brit, is is not unlike

some of the hate-filled swill being pumped out by the anti-Obama faction, also known as the "all things Rupert Murdock in America crowd,"

the madness is made possible by political figures "creating scandals," where there are none, and forgetting that bi-partisanship is essential for the survival of democracies, in a two party system.

In America, the biggest myth is that the Republican Party actually "cares" about people, the kind that do most of the sweating, bleeding and dying, at least.

Alan Turing was the godfather of cryptoanalysis, who probably saved the UK from being defeated, or at least having a Nazi victory in Europe during World War II.
