Shouting \”off our streets Nazi scum\”, the demonstrators chased him down the street to his car.
Mr Griffin, who has been elected an MEP for the North West of England, was guided to his vehicle by his bodyguards and quickly drove off.
It is amusing, it has to be said.
However, the police have a duty to protect him from such mobs. Just as they have a duty to protect anyone lawfully going about their own business from violence and threats of it.
It might be true that fascist scum would, if they were in power, use mobs to silence us, to prevent us from going about our lawful business. It might be that given that, that some would say we should give them a dose of their own medicine. Why should we allow fascists free rein when they would not allow us free rein?
As the Devil said, the reason we do not deny fascist scum the protection of the law is that we are not fascist scum.
Or if you would prefer the pornographer\’s, Larry Flynt, point, if the law protects a scumbag like me then you can be sure that it will protect you.
