    I am also against the islamisation of the uk. Am I a far right racist who needs to change their ways?

    4:57 Once you take responsibility for yourself, you stop blaming others, then you can change… That's soooo true.

    He's a traitor to his people! Right in the middle of the non-white take over on the British lsles. I can't wait to see these scumbags swinging from the lampposts.

    Just curious if you don’t cover it up wouldn’t people mistake you for whatever organise you were associated with? Since it’s in a pretty visible area

    Any extremism/fundamentalism stems from isolation. The ideology isn't really the thing to explore- but rather the isolation and then sense of community people (particularly men) feel when they join these groups. EDL and ISIS members have very similar stories of wanting to belong, find meaning and identity. Like we all do really, but some people deal with it more healthily- more critically. Some are just lucky to already have that. Connecting people and giving them new purpose breaks the brainwashing.

    There are 3 t's in tattoo, the 2nd and third aren't silent t's. The fuck is wrong with these people, pronouncing as ta'oo.

    Big respect to this man, so sad to hear how lonely he was and how he was so easily brainwashed. He’s obviously a sensitive man who just went down the wrong path and is now spreading the word of acceptance, good for him! And even bigger respect to the Muslim man that looked past this chaps views at that time and sat with him, educated him and befriended him ❤️

    Too bad she put the stencil on wrong. They circle is meant to be a circle not an oval. How can she be on a shoe like this and not even know the basics

    We need more Ivans in the world.
    A person willing to sit down, have a chat and say "maybe I am wrong".
    Just because you're willing to sit for a chat doesn't mean your wrong, but it does mean that you're open to the concept of being wrong.
    Less debates, more chatting.
    Be like Ivan.

    racism isn't far right its racism sure members of the far right are racists but calling someone with far right political views a racist due to their views is intolerant of different opinions

    Islam is still a evil cult, and needs changing completely or eradicating!
