Please Leave Comments on Online Mainstream Media to Make People Vote for Liberty GB Tomorrow

Vote Liberty GB European Elections 22 May 2014


This is the last day before the vote to elect Members of the European Parliament for Britain, and I cannot resist the impulse to urge you all to do what you can to get my great party Liberty GB elected.

We have three candidates, of which I am one.

Liberty GB's great supporter Linda Rivera has asked for indications of online articles where she – and many other supporters like her – can leave comments that will invite people to vote Liberty GB on Thursday.

She also asked for a suitable leaflet she can upload or type in the comments.

This is a last-ditch effort on our behalf for the elections, for which we thank her.

This is the image of our 10-point-plan leaflet.

Great Support for Liberty GB’s Anti-Halal Boycott Subway Day in Woking

Liberty GB placard: Say no to halal, Say no to Subway


The Subway sandwich chain is the target of many international boycotts for a variety of good reasons.

In 2011 in the USA the company gave the Subway Sportsman of the Year Award to the American footballer Michael Vick, a convicted felon who was incarcerated for 18 months (and could have been longer) for spending years torturing and killing animals.

When police raided his house, they found 65 dogs, a dog-fighting pit, blood-stained carpets, and various equipment commonly used in dog fighting, including a ‘rape stand’ in which female dogs are strapped into and restrained, to allow male dogs to breed with them.

According to the federal indictment, when Vick’s dogs lost a fight or didn’t perform well, they were routinely killed by methods like electrocution, hanging, drowning and “slamming” the dog’s body onto the concrete floor. Many dogs were butchered in these ways and Vick took part in the executions.

The company's support for an animal torturer sparked an ongoing boycott of Subway promoted by Facebook pages “liked” by tens of thousands.

As if this weren’t enough, Subway is now showing even more signs of its lack of concern for animal cruelty.

Nearly 200 Subway branches in Britain have decided to serve exclusively halal meat.

Halal meat, derived from animals barbarically slaughtered by having their throats slit without previous stunning and then let bleed to death (which can take several minutes), is allowed as a loophole by British law, which normally requires animals to be rendered unconscious before slaughter.

This exception is permitted in the name of “religious freedom”, but in reality not only there is no moral justification but even no need for such atrocity.

Islam specifically exempts its faithful from the obligation to eat halal food if none is available:
He hath only forbidden you dead meat, and blood, and the flesh of swine, and that on which any other name hath been invoked besides that of Allah. But if one is forced by necessity, without wilful disobedience, nor transgressing due limits,- then is he guiltless. For Allah is Oft-forgiving Most Merciful. Quran (002:173)
In addition to the issue of cruelty to animals, the selling and serving of halal meat to a wide, non-Muslim public goes against the spirit of the legislation consenting to such exceptions to humane slaughter in an animal-loving country like Britain, exceptions which were meant only for the followers of a specific religion.

In particular, for Christians – believers of the faith which is constitutionally and historically the religion of Britain - eating food sacrificed to Allah is idolatry: “You are to abstain from food sacrificed to idols” (Acts 15:29) Also Acts 21:25.

Other religious groups, like Sikhs, are expressly forbidden by their religion from eating meat “killed the Muslim way”.

Last but by no means least, according to Islamic law 2.5% of the money Muslims earn must go to zakat (charity). Of this, 1/8 must finance jihad (holy war), which includes atrocities committed in Muslim-majority countries - like Syria - and terrorism. It wouldn’t be halal (“permitted”) for halal-certification companies not to pay their dues to jihad.

Halal is very topical these days, for the many voices, petitions, organisations, Facebook pages, commentators, quite a lot of MPs, yet more MPs, religious leaders, and the new head of the British Veterinary Association John Blackwell calling for its ban in Britain (following other countries including Switzerland and Denmark) and for a clearer labelling so that people are enabled to make informed choices.

Downing Street said that halal labels will be reviewed. Ministers said that they will consider compulsory labelling for halal meat if there is 'widespread demand' and it is done across Europe.

Against this background, the Liberty GB party - which is contesting the 22 May European Elections in the South East - has joined the boycott of Subway. Saturday 10 May a group of us held a peaceful protest outside one of the 200 Subway restaurants in Britain serving exclusively halal meat - the one in 9 Chertsey Road, Woking, Surrey – and surrounding areas.

We handed out leaflets, displayed placards and discussed with interested members of the public. Talking to people we found that, as always, the halal issue is one over which almost all non-Muslims agree: cruelty to animals should not be tolerated for any reason, and Islamic law, sharia, should not be forced down anyone’s throat, literally or metaphorically.

Enza Ferreri: No More Immigration and Islamisation, Vote Liberty GB




Transcript

Liberty GB, for which I am a candidate, is a new patriotic, conservative party contesting the 2014 European Parliament Elections in the South-East constituency on the 22nd of May.

People sometimes ask us why they should vote for us and not UKIP, adding that a vote for Liberty GB will be a wasted vote.

Let me answer those questions.

I want to start with the BBC’s Question Time programme in Barking of the 6th of March. People’s worries about the alien invasion that part of East London has been subjected to were motivated by “personal perceptions” not corresponding to reality, said Leftist journalist David Aaronovitch.

These days the objective “reality” can only be established by costly studies commissioned by the government or a Leftist university institute. When people hear the words “study”, “report” or “research” they automatically assume that it’s conducted according to scientific principles of investigation.

That unfortunately is not necessarily the case. Many studies are flawed in various ways, especially when they try to arrive at a conclusion which suits the researcher’s ideology or that of the provider of his funds. Take the research done to establish whether immigration affects British housing and employment. These are problems deeply felt in the South East. The question can be answered with a simple arithmetic calculation coupled with a basic knowledge of how the market law of supply and demand works.

Researchers should answer this question instead: how is it possible that huge numbers of new additions to a population in a short time can NOT affect things like housing and employment?

It’s as simple as 2 plus 2 equals to 4. You have, say, an area with accommodation for 1,000 households. In this area live 950 families. Relatively suddenly there’s an influx of other 200 families. Now there are 1,150 households but still 1,000 homes. Demand will far exceed supply, which in turn will drive up prices and increase homelessness.

The only research that is needed is finding out the size of population and the available housing: the rest is deductive logic. Certain consequences are inevitable.

This is so true that even pro-immigration people keep calling for the building of new houses, therefore implicitly admitting that immigration does have an impact on lack of accommodation.

Similar scenario for employment. If, as a simple example, there are on average 100 job seekers for 1 vacancy, the outcome for job seekers will be greatly different than if there are 200. More people competing for the same jobs - same demand for labour force and more supply - means more unemployment and lower wages.

And again, the easy confirmation of this comes from the fact that employers are among the most ardent supporters of immigration, which provides them with ample – and therefore cheaper - workforce.

Of course things tend to be always a bit more complicated, but in this case the complications are small details in a very clear fundamental, overall picture.

During the same Question Time programme, David Aaronovitch called a man we at Liberty GB have christened “the homeless patriot” racist without using the actual word, when he asked him how seeing black faces in the street makes them not your streets any more. Incidentally, the homeless patriot had never uttered the word “black”.

What would Aaronovitch say about the fact that you can walk and use public transport anywhere in London for hours and hardly ever hear a voice speaking English? Does that qualify for those no longer being your streets? I get annoyed by that and I’m not even English-born, I’m Italian – although I’ve lived in London 30 years -, I can imagine what it must feel for English people.

In addition to the number, we have the question of the kind of immigrants. Many of them are Muslim. Most Westerners don’t really know what Islam is and, hearing that it’s a religion, make the natural assumption that it’s something similar to our own experience of a religion: Christianity. They think it’s basically the same thing, just replacing the Bible with the Quran, God with Allah, Jesus with Muhammad.

The reality is very different. Islam is not so much a religion as a political doctrine and system of law and government. Islamic law, sharia, doesn’t constitute just moral commandments as in Christianity but laws of the state.

Divine laws, according to Islam, should replace human, imperfect laws. Everywhere. All over the world. How? By Muslims’ assuming power and domination over the various countries and peoples of the earth. Peacefully if possible, but using force and violence if necessary.

When Muslim leaders and representatives say that Islam is a religion of peace, what they actually mean is that, once all the world is united under Muslim rule, there will be peace. They equivocate, knowing that Western people ignore that.

It doesn’t take much to understand that there is a big difference between self-described followers of a religion – Christianity - committing acts of violence that go against the core precepts of that religion and self-described followers of another religion – Islam - committing acts of violence that they are ordered to perpetrate by that religion.

Britain, when Muslims reach a certain number, will follow the same fate as all other places where they try to impose sharia. And we already see the first signs now.

This takes us back to the original question. What’s wrong with UKIP? UKIP understands the problems of immigration, but doesn’t deal with them effectively. Freezing it for 5 years is not enough.

What about the immigrants already here and their successive generations? UKIP has no answer to that. Liberty GB will deport illegal immigrants, expel foreigners found guilty of imprisonable offences, examine the case of legal immigrants living in Britain since 1997, expel foreign imams and home-grown hate preachers, help repatriations, demand that immigrants assimilate into British life.

UKIP’s website has hardly any mention of Islam, and the party is hesitant in recognising that the problem of the Islamisation of Britain exists. Liberty GB clearly declares in its manifesto that Islam is incompatible with our democratic system, and has many policies dealing with its threat.

On same-sex marriage too, UKIP hasn’t been firm and uncompromising in its opposition as Liberty GB is.

In the past, voting for UKIP was also considered a wasted vote, but it turned out to put pressure on the Tories about leaving the EU. Now, voting for Liberty GB may put pressure on UKIP about immigration and Islam, making its positions more straightforward.

Please support, join, donate to, and most importantly vote Liberty GB. My name is Enza Ferreri. Thank you.

Fox News: In the UK a Radical Imam Has More Respect than a Man Who Saved the Western World




“The Five” political talk show on the American TV channel Fox News discussed the Paul Weston case.

A headline was: “Free speech? British pol arrested for quoting Churchill passage critical of Muslims.”

The panel pointed out that in the US the First Amendment – which guarantees freedom of speech – would have prevented this from happening, whereas in Britain free speech is curtailed to the point that two people could be arrested if someone overhears their private conversation in a pub which he considers of a racist nature and calls the police.

Panellist Greg Gutfeld, remarking on the lack of respect for the British wartime leader in his home country, said: “Now Churchill is seen as another dead white male, and probably racist”. He added that the danger in limiting speech is that you decrease options for outrage, which in turn increases likelihood of violence.

During the programme a clip of an interview on the Canadian channel Sun TV was shown, in which Paul Weston said: “They go out of their way not to arrest anybody from the Islamic community, no matter what awfully dreadful things they get up to, but they will immediately arrest anybody from the non-Muslim side of it who dares to raise his voice in protest about what’s going on. And the reason why they do this is because, if they have to admit that there is a serious problem with Islam, then they will have to do something about it”.

Kimberly Guilfoyle agreed with that sentiment. She said that the UK faces a serious threat of Islamic terrorism – and America is heading that way too – but, as Weston is asserting, the authorities don’t want to deal with the problem.

Juan Williams remarked that, in a multicultural, multi-religious society like Britain, public discussion of the history of Islam should not be forbidden, including its negative aspects, in the same way as it is allowed to criticise in public his own faith: Christianity.

Dutch Foreign Minister Questions about Paul Weston’s Arrest

Geert Wilders, leader of the Party for Freedom (PVV)


Two members of the Dutch Parliament, Geert Wilders and Raymond de Roon of the Party for Freedom (PVV), have raised the question of Paul Weston’s recent arrest with the Dutch foreign minister.
Below is the press release sent out today by the PVV.



PVV questions Dutch Foreign Minister about arrest of British politician

Today, Dutch parliamentarians Geert Wilders and Raymond de Roon (both PVV) asked the Dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs, Frans Timmermans, a number of questions about the arrest of British politician Paul Weston. You can read the questions below:

Parliamentary questions of MPs Raymond de Roon and Geert Wilders (both PVV) to the Minister of Foreign Affairs about the arrest of a British politician for quoting Winston Churchill:

1. Are you familiar with the articles “Paul Weston — Victim of Sharia: Arrested For Quoting Winston Churchill” and “Arrested for quoting Winston Churchill: European election candidate accused of religious and racial harassment after he repeats wartime prime minister’s words on Islam during campaign speech”?

2. Do you share our opinion that the arrest of the politician Paul Weston is a gross violation of freedom of expression and an example of dhimmi behavior? If not, why not?

3. Do you agree that this event is not unique, but is exemplary for the state of siege surrounding freedom of expression through the rise of Islamic censorship in the West? If not, why not?

4. Is it true that Paul Weston risks a two-year prison sentence due to simply quoting a passage from Winston Churchill’s book “The River War” about the militant character of Islam and the social decline that results from it?

5. Are you willing to contact the British Minister of Justice and insist that no charges be pressed against Paul Weston? If so, will you keep Parliament informed of the British reaction? If not, why not?

6. What are you going to do to ensure that freedom of expression, both domestically and internationally, will not be sacrificed to Islamic intolerance?

7. Are you prepared to draw international attention to the danger that anti-racism laws and criminals laws on defamation of religion and/or groups are abused to silence criticism of Islam?

8. How do you intend to wage the fight for the preservation of freedom of expression, in light of the planned rapprochement to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, an organization which aims for an international ban of blasphemy and which attempts to restrict freedom of expression in the West under the pretext of the fight against “islamophobia”?
