BNP, BBC, UK, and the DNC

Recently Nick Griffin of the BNP (British National Party) was a guest on a BBC called Question Time in the UK (United Kingdom). This one event caused huge protest and debate in the United Kingdom.

The BNP is a political party in the UK. Nick Griffin is the chairman of the BNP. The BNP is a controversial party with their adversaries accusing the BNP of being a racist, extreme right wing party. Some have accused them of being fascist, if not out right Nazis. No such claim is being made in this video.

Some of the criticisms hurled at Mr. Griffin are: He once was a holocaust denier (talk about being stupid). But later he recanted his denial. Then he was accused of posing in a photograph with American David Duke, one time member of the KKK (Ku Klux Klan). If this photo insists on being a major irritant for Mr. Griffin, perhaps he should travel across the pond and come to the USA. The DNC (Democratic Party) in the USA would surely embrace Mr. Griffin and forgive his KKK photo. Currently serving in the United States Senate (equivalent to the UK House of Lords) is a Senator from West Virginia named Robert Byrd. Senator Robert Byrd was once in the KKK and an official in that band of thugs. Yet today he is an honored and prominent member of the Democratic Party.
