What do the BNP (British National Party) stand for? In particular, are the BNP racist? I argue that they are a racist party because, firstly they prevent non-whites from joining, and secondly and more importantly they want to kick all non-white British citizens (including all mixed race people) out of the country.
Incidently, the BNP don’t deny they are racist, on their website they say:
The enemies of British Nationalism continue to parrot the claim that the BNP is a “racist party.” This claim is most often repeated because the BNP unashamedly addresses itself to the issues and concerns of the indigenous British population, and because it seeks to ensure that British people remain the majority population in this country. Opponents point to the fact that the BNP has an all-white membership, and that we address issues concerning white people.
If the BNP is racist for holding this position, then, we would suggest, all of the following organisations – some of them state funded – are also “racist” because they too address themselves exclusively to the issues and concerns of their respective communities: [list of organisations follows]
So they don’t deny they are racist, they merely engage in whataboutery.
The evidence that the BNP is racist this comes from the BNP’s constitution which is available from http://bnp.org.uk/resources/constitution-9th-edition/ or from here.
The BNP’s membership criteria are as follows:
SECTION 2: MEMBERSHIP
1) The British National Party represents the collective National, Environmental, Political, Racial, Folkish, Social, Cultural, Religious and Economic interests of the indigenous Anglo-Saxon, Celtic and Norse folk communities of Britain and those we regard as closely related and ethnically assimilated or assimilable aboriginal members of the European race also resident in Britain. Membership of the BNP is strictly defined within the terms of, and our members also self define themselves within, the
legal ambit of a defined ‘racial group’ this being ‘Indigenous Caucasian’ and defined ‘ethnic groups’ emanating from that Race as specified in law in the House of Lords case of Mandla V Dowell Lee (1983) 1 ALL ER 1062, HL.
2) The indigenous British ethnic groups deriving from the class of ‘Indigenous
Caucasian’ consist of members of: i) The Anglo-Saxon Folk Community; ii) The Celtic
Scottish Folk Community; iii) The Scots-Northern Irish Folk Community; iv) The
Celtic Welsh Folk Community; v) The Celtic Irish Folk Community; vi) The Celtic
Cornish Folk Community; vii) The Anglo-Saxon-Celtic Folk Community; viii) The
Celtic-Norse Folk Community; ix) The Anglo-Saxon-Norse Folk Community; x) The
Anglo-Saxon-Indigenous European Folk Community; xi) Members of these ethnic
groups who reside either within or outside Europe but ethnically derive from them.
3) Membership of the party shall be open only to those who are 16 years of age or over and whose ethnic origin is listed within Sub-section 2
But more important than their membership is their policies. On page 3 on theior constitution it says [my emphases]:
The British National Party stands for the preservation of the national and ethnic character of the British people and is wholly opposed to any form of racial integration between British and non-European peoples. It is therefore committed to stemming and reversing the tide of non-white immigration and to restoring, by legal changes, negotiation and consent, the overwhelmingly white makeup of the British population that existed in Britain prior to 1948.
To understand what this means, we must read between the lines. There are millions on non-white Britons, most of whom were born here and have never lived in another country. These people are settled here and have no reason to leave. The only way you’ve going to make them all leave is through threats, intimidation and taking away their legal rights — essentially you’d have to use similar measures to what the Nazis did to German Jews before WW2.
