Britain First are nothing to do with D Day

Facebook is usually a friendly place where people post funny pictures of cats and share their news.

 

But increasingly I’m seeing my friends – who are mostly lovely tolerant people with no axes to grind – reposting photos from a facebook group called Britain First.

 

They have no idea that Britain First is actually a political party which has been linked with the BNP.

 

Been seeing this a lot recently.  Took a zero tolerance approach of un-friended anyone who shares from that group.

Not sure why Britain First want to commemorate D-Day anyway - didn't the people who shared their ideology actually lose WWII?

I'm a bit more tolerant.  I generally explain that the sentiment is fine but the source isn't.  It all depends on the response whether I just forget about it or hit that nice unfriend button.

I'm somewhat shocked by the ignorance of some of my face ache friends who have reposted, shared, liked stuff from Britain First.  An odious bunch shamelessly coat tailing something which has real historical, cultural, personal, and social significance.  Unlike them who appear from all I have seen the last couple of days to be a bunch of narrow minded, self serving, self congratulatory nasty people.  I think I will go with ckn's approach now that the 6th has past.

As an ex member of the RAF it really grips my $*** when I see these types of group (britain first, edl etc) using the RAF roundel and other british military symbols on their flags, propaganda etc. During my time in the RAF I met one person who was openly a member of one of these types of group and tbf he was a complete idiot. Always in trouble with both the civil and military police until they eventually discharged him. In the main, the people I met in the forces across all 3 services were some of the most tolerant people ypu could wish to meet. Sorry for the rant, but it just winds me up that these people try to hijack what sacrifices some people made and continue to make for their own political agenda.

Normally I'm straight on shares from pages like Britian First as I object to having there propaganda cluttering my time line, but I've cut a bit of slack this week though as people sharing shares rather from the originating page are hard pressed to tell were its come from and the shares on the whole have been D Day related rather than the usual rubbish.

Never heard of them. Yet another reason for not using Facebook.

No matter what BF back/support it will be tied as a tool against Islam. Especially the copious amounts of facebook posts backing the Eng football effort.
