Is this supposed to be surprising?
In Arizona the Republicans are openly tied to the NATIONAL SOCIALIST MOVEMENT

Besides Ready, there's also Russell Pearce's ties to the National Alliance, a neo-Nazi group headed by a convicted child pornographer and child molestor (whose victims included his own pre-pubescent daughter), Kevin Alfred Strom.

Add this to Sharron Angle's opposition to screening youth group employees for past sex crimes involving children and it seems that the Tea Party is not only in bed with Nazis but may also be in bed with NAMBLA also (and, if not now, they may be soon given how so many other fringe groups have flocked to the movement)

When it comes to themselves, it's a different story.
Sounds like a bunch of lefties to me.

Awww geez, don't you think you're blowing this up a bit? I mean it's a group of 500 people or so across a giant pond.

This is fantastic. Hopefully we are seeing signs of Europe waking up to the danger in their midst. I hope it is not too late.

I take it that the "giant pond" part means you're referring to the EDL and not NAMBLA. I would not want anything to do with the EDL, the BNP, or NAMBLA. I find those all to be repulsive groups.

The EDL may be small but their BNP allies/masters are larger. BNP candidates recieved over 500K votes in the 2010 elections. Fortunately they didn't win any seats in parliament but the BNP has seats in the European Parliament and in local governments.
