"These coons need gassing"
It was almost inevitable that there would be certain elements of society such as the BNP and EDL who were ready to take advantage of the civil disturbances and further their race hate politics.
Recently convicted criminal Stephen Lennon, leader of the English Defence League (EDL) stated that 'they were ready to defend the country against the looters'.
Lennon has put out a 'call-to-arms' to supporters of the group to come out on to the streets and stop the riots.
“We’re going to stop the riots—police obviously can’t handle it," he said before encouraging members to launch street patrols in Bristol, Manchester, Luton and Leicestershire in an attempt to convince angry young men against destroying their towns.
"If they tried to smash up Luton town centre I’d know every one of them. I can go into any working class community and talk to them.”
The wicked truth about the EDL members was all to easy to see today with one member Lewis Smith, spewing,'These coons need gassing". Other EDL supporters on the thread agree enthusiastically.
Sadly community tensions will be tested to the limit. Race hatred organisations and some individuals from different communities will be seeking to break up cohesion and pit one community against another.
As ugly as these disturbances are they have never been about one race attacking another.
