The BBC displays its usual bias but some interesting information is conveyed nonetheless. They talk to people in the Generation Identity movement, calling it the “Alt Right”. The Alt Right meme is obviously spreading big time (thanks Hillary!) but there’s a danger of confusion as it percolates into the mainstream.
Generation Identity are by no means definitive or even typical of the Alt Right, although they could certainly be considered part of it. You can see in the interviews how constrained their thinking still is by political correctness: they won’t say a word against Jews; they frame their defence of European peoplehood in terms of culture and eschew any notion of identity existing in the genes. Of course none of this stops them being branded “Nazis” anway.
In the discussion that followed, the BBC brought on someone called Julia Ebner of the Quilliam Foundation – founded by “Good Muslims” who are paid handsomely by the government for pushing the “few bad apples” narrative – who declared that “far right terrorism is becoming a bigger threat at the moment than jihadist and we’ve seen attacks, yeah, across the entire continent.” She also pushed hard on the Islamophobia Causes Jihad meme – blaming the “far right” for driving Muslims to embrace jihad – as well as the Bad As Each Other Meme – saying the “far right” and Islamic State were two sides of the same coin.
