Remember when Nick Griffin appeared on Question Time? Remember the total outrage, hand wringing, screaming at the doors of the BBC by the anti-fascists and all the hand wringing demands of "no-platform" from the Left?
I ask simply because they all seem rather silent about the media presence of a certain Anjem Choudary, former top bod at the banned terrorist organisation Al-Muhajiroun and now running Islam 4 UK, an Islamist organisation that is "a platform for the global front Al-Muhajiroun".
Choudary is big buddies with Omar Bakri Muhammad, and, ironically in line with the BNP, really doesn't like Jews very much and would happily see them all exterminated. Yet there is silence, thus far at least, from places like Liberal Conspiracy.
I just don't get it, why does some complete fruitcake extremist who has made no bones about praising suicide bombing, get away with seemingly bugger all condemnation? I think the only place on the Left that actually holds all extremist loons to account these days is Harry's Place.
Why are they the only ones with the balls to be consistent though? More importantly, why does someone like Anjem Choudary get airtime with not a whisper of complaint from so many alleged anti-Nazis whilst his extremist loony equal Griffin causes so much controversy?
Surely both are bastards, worthy of their moaning?
