  • I've been having a tough time completely understanding what's been going on in French politics, and now this. People say all kinds of things about American politics, but at least over here overtly racist policies usually don't succeed at high levels of government.

    So, when people say Le Pen or the BNP are racist, which of these do they mean?

    • Opposed to preferential treatment programs or quotas for minorities, such as America's affirmative action, in private business.
    • Same as above, only about government

    • Can't tell you about Le Pen, but as for the BNP - this list comes from their policies page [bnp.org.uk].

      • IMMIGRATION - time to say NO!
      • EUROPE - back to British independence!
      • LAW AND ORDER - crack down on crime!
      • ECONOMY - British workers first!
      • EDUCATION - discipline, standards, achievement!
      • AGRICULTURE - quality before quantity!
      • HEALTH - first-class healthcare for all!
      • TRANSPORT - time to invest!
      • ENVIRONMENT - NO to pollution!
      • FOREIGN AID - time to spend our money on our own people!
      • PENSIONERS - pensioners before asylum seekers!
      • NORTHERN IRELAND - NO to sectarianism!
      • DEFENCE - no more cuts!
      • FOREIGN AFFAIRS - Britain's interests first!
      • DEMOCRACY - letting the people decide!

      There's more detail on each of those on their site but as far as racial minorities go they want to stop all immigration, repatriate all illegal immigrants and criminals, and offer financial incentives for voluntary repatriation.

      There's also their connection with Combat 18 a group of thugs who delight in racially-motivated violence. They get their name from the fact that the 1st and 8th letters of the alphabet are A and H (for Adolf Hitler).

      • Yeah, now that I've looked through their FAQ, I've seen plenty. Opposition to interracial marriage because "a race is a beautiful thing and should stay pure"? Bleah! Turns my stomach! Literally!

        1st and 8th letters of the alphabet

        I thought freaks like that were only in the U.S. Sometimes I weep for my world.

        The repatriation concept is strange. We had a similar movement about slaves in the 1800s; I believe that's part of what founded Nigeria and Monroevia. (You may have already known that; I do
