Aha. Nigel Farage, the hypocrite, like all the political scum past, present and future. UKIP and its racist members, and supporters, want to pretend that if they ridicule nationalities then it's NOT racist. Sadly, Nigel Liar Farage considers it extremely racist if the "English"(himself) is rejected.

To clarify: UKIP can pisstake other nationalities, and mock and insult to their hearts content. Other nationalities cannot mock the "English"/Nigel Farage. Sound familiar???

Read this to see more:

At the end of the party’s spring conference the delegates assembled for their gala dinner, where they were entertained by a comedian called Paul Eastwood. Milking what the Telegraph’s Steve Swinford described as “rapturous applause”, Eastwood told the following jokes.

Referring to the Olympics, Eastwood said: “Poland did well. They took home bronze, silver, gold, lead, copper – anything they could get their hands on.”

“Team Somalia – they did well, didn’t they? They had to apologise. Didn’t realise sailing and shooting were two different events.”

Implying the Midlands was mostly populated by Asian people he said: “Any Midlands people here? Wonderful! My favourite accent is a Midlands accent.” The comedian then tried to do an Asian accent and branded the Islamic call to prayer a “traditional Midlands folk song”.

That is the definition of racist humour. A white man standing up getting laughs as he makes derogatory jokes in a fake Asian accent. It’s the comedy of “Mind Your Language”. And the Ukip delegates loved it.

Any mainstream party leader would immediately disown such comments. Given the opportunity to do so Nigel Farage, pointedly, chose to defend them. "I'm not going to comment on individual jokes, but I think we're in huge danger here. This was a guy telling jokes about national stereotypes, not racial stereotypes.”

That response was instructive. Not because of what it says about the Ukip leader’s sense of humour, but because it goes to the heart of his party’s entire political strategy.

Over the past year Ukip has gone beyond raising general concerns about immigration to directly targeting and stigmatising individual national groups. Poles, Romanians, Bulgarians and Albanians are amongst the favourite targets. And, as Nigel Farage said at the weekend, he believes that’s fine because they represent national, not racial stereotypes.

But of course it isn’t fine. As Farage, in a separate context, has himself acknowledged.

Last May Farage visited Edinburgh, where he was met by a small but aggressive mob of protesters. Eventually he had to be escorted from the scene by police for his own safety.

Directly accusing the SNP of being behind the protest, Farage described the protesters as “racist Nazi scum”. The incident was, he said, “deeply racist and displayed a total hatred of the English”.

And he’s right. He wasn’t targeted on the basis of his race, but on the basis of his nationality. And as he said, that was racist. In the same way that when Ukip targets people on the basis of their nationality that’s racist as well.
Like all the elites, and their demonic puppets, one rule for them, and another for others. Don't pick on the "English" but the "English" can pick on every nationality/dark skinned/Eastern Europeans and it's all good. Nigel Farage was also using the incident to further whip up his flock of crazies, and further divide the Scots and English.
