Not many things shock us, but UKIP’s latest tactics to score political points on the back of a tragedy that has rocked our country, and use it to their advantage is truly the lowest we have seen them go so far.
This morning (15/09) we were shown a tweet made by an account which is often tweeting pro-UKIP propaganda, and which was ‘favourited’ by our old friend Robin Cook.
We’re not going to reproduce the image of the screenshot we have here on this blog, or tweet it, because it’s so utterly vile and deserves no coverage. This is the worse we have seen in a continuous stream of memes and images attacking the Labour Party, and those who oppose UKIP, or those who oppose racial hatred directed at innocent Muslims. It has since been removed. We have a copy of it, and if anyone wants to see it they can ask us on twitter and we will DM.
Anyway, we were made aware of a new one that appeared today. 21/09/2014
Apparently from United Women For UKIP. They like to also post stuff like this:
Here are some other examples.
The following screenshot is crazy.
Child abuse exclusive to Labour areas only? I know most of UKIP’s support is misguided, but this?
In this one, UKIP is referring to BNP propaganda ‘Labour25’ that was doing the rounds over the years.
Here ‘Tommy Robinson’ ex leader of the EDL gets involved and shows his support.
And all this is seemingly legitimised by people like Jane Collins MEP, who seems to be able to refer to Labour as the ‘Paedophile Protection Party’? We’ve blogged about her before.
We ask this. If UKIP feel this is how to run a political campaign, by accusing everyone who opposes them of being paedophiles, or paedophile protectors/appeasers etc, then what are they actually capable of in power?
Of course, they are now using this to their advantage in Heywood and Middleton by-election. No surprise there!
