The Sun and the Daily Star are finding in Nick Griffin an unmitigated hate figure, ranking with paedophiles as being qualified to be put in the stocks for unabashed pelting. When activists chucked eggs at him The Sun says:-
SHELL-SHOCKED Nick Griffin turned tail and scrambled off yesterday after being splattered with eggs outside Parliament.
The cowardly BNP leader had hoped to revel in his racist party's Euro poll wins at a triumphant press conference. Instead the yolk-speckled chicken showed his yellow streak when he was sent packing by anti-fascist protesters.
Griffin, newly-elected MEP for North West England, had just begun spouting off on Westminster's historic College Green.
Dozens of demonstrators surrounded him and his shaven-headed cronies, and drowned him out with chants of "Nazi scum off our streets".
Griffin and cohort Andrew Brons, the BNP's other new MEP, beat a hasty retreat under a hail of eggs - some daubed with swastikas.
A phalanx of burly "minders" cleared his escape route by shoving placard-waving protesters and passers-by out of the way.
A slightly-built woman in a red jacket was elbowed in the neck and sent sprawling.
Shaken Griffin and Brons were bundled across the road and into a silver Ford Mondeo. The car then sped off - to a chorus of cheers.
Last night the protest was defended by Weyman Bennett, national secretary of Unite Against Fascism. He said: "We came here to stand up for the people who have faced the intimidation and violence of racist thugs.
"If people in Germany and Italy had stood up to the Nazis and fascists in the 1920s and 1930s, maybe we could have avoided the horrors of the Second World War.
"We cannot make the same mistakes. We must confront the BNP."
But Griffin whinged: "It's a very, very sad day for British democracy. People should be entitled to hear what we have to say."
He even claimed nearby cops had been ordered not to intervene to protect him.
Once the slightly built woman and Weyman Bennett would have been trouble-makers, out for confrontation, trying to stifle democracy and so on and fit for banging up.
The Daily Star’s headline about the egg throwing was The Yolk on You. (Eggs are paydirt for pun miners).
The Sun and its ilk have been running stories about Muslims protesting about The Three Little Pigs; Anjem Choudary (feared leader of about twenty) denouncing Christmas; golliwogs incarcerated and destroyed, asylum seekers being put up at the Doncaster and all the other bits of news trash which are either false or trivial but which give the impression that this country is about to be taken over by a Guardian reading Osama Bin Laden. They loathe the overt racism of the BNP – good for them and their readership for that – but they have been pretty much making propaganda for them over the last few years.
