Norfolk Unity statement on homosexuality in the BNP

In the light of information we have been receiving at Norfolk Unity in response to our many posts on the subject of the BNP legal adviser Lee Barnes, we feel it necessary to remind our visitors of this website's stance on homosexuality and bisexuality.

The sexual orientation of leading members of the British National Party is of no interest to us unless it is relevant to their political activities. We remind our visitors that many people who appear to be completely heterosexual in later life have sought out and enjoyed homosexual experiences in their younger days, while others continue to engage in infrequent clandestine homosexual relations while maintaining an aggressively masculine exterior.

Undoubtedly this is true of the leading BNP member named to us.

While we agree with some comments made to us that the perceived necessity of obscuring a bisexual nature in a masculine environment such as the BNP can lead to serious ongoing mental crises, we feel unable to permit statements naming a particular individual to appear on Norfolk Unity.

This is primarily an antifascist and antiracist blog, and it will never be seen to attack gays and bisexuals - indeed, as one of our contributors makes no secret of her sexual orientation, it would be hypocritical of us to do so.

I think you should spill the beans NU. The bastard's libelled Denise so why not?

These allegations go way back. Why protect him?

Exposing the BNP’s homophobia said...

As anti-fascists we take a strong stance against homophobia. This is an essential part of anti-fascism, especially given that the Holocaust targeted not just Jewish and Gypsy communities but, also gays and lesbians.

Follow the link below. It details the BNP’s massive homophobia:

It would be worthwhile having a separate blog that sets out the BNP’s hatred of gay and lesbian persons.

¡No PasarĂ¡n!

While i totally support the stand you are taking it must be acknowledged the Denise came in for a real nasty piece of gutter level attack and her friends may well want to retaliate on her behalf.

For myself when i have attacked them in the past it has not and never will be because of their lifestyle choice, it is because they cannot be honest about it.

Thanks for that, Tulip.

The problem we've had here is so many posts from BNP members naming Lee Barnes as a full-blooded bi-sexual.

You can see why we, as anti-homophobics, have not seen fit to allow such posts through.

No doubt the BNP will call us "anti-free speech" for failing to "out" their party's legal adviser, but tough luck!

Denise, Lee Barnes totally libelled and attacked you in the most disgusting and rabid way. Lee Barnes is a nasty piece of fascist work. Why don't you publish the posts by those BNP members (perhaps along with their names/IP addresses)?

The hyprocrisy, double-standards and pure unadultered hatred of Lee Barnes and the BNP must be exposed.

I think Norfolk Unity have outed him their way.

"While we agree with some comments made to us that the perceived necessity of obscuring a bisexual nature in a masculine environment such as the BNP can lead to serious ongoing mental crises, "
