BNP Membership List Posted On Internet

The BNP is a far-right political party in the UK which restricts membership to caucasians only.

The Guardian reported:

"The entire membership list of the British National party has been posted on the internet, identifying thousands of people as secret supporters of the far right and exposing many to the risk of dismissal from work, disciplinary action or vilification.

The BNP leader, Nick Griffin, claimed today that he knew the identity of the person who published the list, describing him as a "hardliner" senior employee who left the party last year.

"He didn't like the direction the party was going and broke away, taking the list with him," Griffin told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.

Around 13,500 names and home addresses were posted on a website on Monday evening.

As well as names and addresses, the list includes the home and mobile phone numbers and personal email addresses of BNP members. It is thought the list may include lapsed members of the party and the names and addresses of people who have expressed an interest in joining the party, but have not signed up. Many of the members' occupations are listed, revealing a small number of police, two solicitors, four ministers of religion, at least one doctor and a number of primary and secondary school teachers."

It is illegal for the police to be a BNP party member. LOL. Hundreds of death threats have been reported by exposed party members since the list was published.

According to the Wikipedia page:

"The BNP asserts that there are biological racial differences that determine the behaviour and character of individuals of different races, although it does not regard whites as superior to other ethnic groups.[21] The party claims that preference for one's own ethnicity is a part of human nature.[20] Its publicity has often conflated Islam withMarxism, due to both systems aiming to put all the world's people under a common system,[citation needed] and has suggested that mainstream politicians with Marxist pasts are partially responsible for this."

They are also (surprise) homophobes and Holocaust deniers! Respect for not doing things by halves BNP!

Anyway, the moral of this post is that the internet makes juicy schadenfreude-filled stories like this EVEN BETTER!

Nick Griffin is the Chairman of the BNP. I present to you LOLGriffins! Now LOL before the violent vigilante recriminations begin! *runs to buy popcorn*
