Nigel Farage and UKIP forge closer ties with extremist US Tea Party

with one comment

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the UKIP!)

Nigel Farage is in the US and he tweeted yesterday about how much he likes one of the politicians he’s been forging political ties with over there:

rand and nigel

Rand Paul is extremely controversial. He’s author of ‘The Tea Party Goes to Washington‘ and one of the leading lights of the extreme right-wing Tea Party movement in the US.

Farage’s most recent cosying up to the militant Tea Party comes just a year after Nigel had some very friendly meetings with Rand Paul’s father – US presidential candidate Ron Paul – who is known as the ‘Godfather of the Tea Party Movement’:

Nigel Farage and the man who trashed the pound. Twice.

As an example of how extreme Nigel’s new friends are, over half of Tea Party supporters don’t believe in evolution or global warming.

Here are just a few other examples:

Arkansas racism, tea-party style

  1. Please, I know you support telling a few untruths to support the movement, but this recycled garbage about the Tea Party will not convince anyone. The Tea Party is right wing, but certainly not racist. It is pro-Israel and against anti Jew discrimination, and have been supporting coal miners in their struggle to prevent pit closures from the Green elements around the Democrats who have destroyed more mining communities than Thatcher dreamed of. And please remember what LBJ said about the blacks when he formulated his Great Society : ‘This will make the niggers vote Democrat for the next 200 years’. There are many in the Tea Party who came through the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s and seventies and are still there fighting for better conditions. I suggest you look into the diversity of US anti government movements. Or perhaps, just call them all racist and accept what the BBC here and the MSM in the US feed you. Yeah, extremist right wing.
    Now try this example of a right wing Tea Party supported demo.

    Or maybe switch off and overlook the complexity of anti government movements.
    By all means criticise Farage, his policies, and indeed the US Tea Party, but meet their arguments with something substantial.
