The rise and rise of Russian nationalism

There have been a number of threats to Russia's security in recent years, from Chechen terrorism to the country's worrying demographic decline. But according to sources close to the Russian security services, what the authorities fear most in these times of economic crisis is the very thing that many Russians see as the country's saviour – nationalism.

Amid a dizzying array of May Day marches, featuring various groups from across the political spectrum, all eyes were on the nationalists. They gathered around a metro station in north Moscow, as well as in other cities across the country, calling for all immigrants to be deported and a "Russia for the Russians". In the event, the Moscow meeting passed off peacefully; police arrested a few demonstrators for the possession of knives, and the rest dispersed without incident. But with a huge migrant population, poverty and unemployment among locals, and with the high oil prices that fuelled the economic boom of the past few years a fast-receding memory, many feel the time for Russia's nationalists to take the political initiative is coming soon.

Then there's Alexander Belov, Moscow's answer to the BNP's Nick Griffin. Dressed in a sharp black suit, the light of a Bluetooth receptor constantly winking over his left ear, he fingers a set of Orthodox Christian prayer beads and sips a freshly squeezed orange juice, looking like one of the thousands of well-to-do businessmen who have made decent money as Russia boomed over the past decade. But as well as being successful in the construction industry, Mr Belov is also Russia's most famous racist. He believes that the time for the nationalists to take the limelight is coming soon.

"What I want is very simple," he says, in a quiet and measured voice. "I don't want parts of Moscow to be ghettos. This city is already full of places where Russians aren't welcome, and it's unacceptable. This is a Russian city and should remain that way."

An erudite and self-assured man who heads a group of skinheads with a reputation for violence, he leads the Movement Against Illegal Immigration – the DPNI, as it's known by its Russian initials – one of Russia's largest far-right groups. One of its main policies is that Russia should introduce a visa regime for migrants from the former Soviet republics, sending most of the millions of Gastarbeiters (Russians use the German term to refer to guest-workers) back home.

Note the difference between him and NG: he heads a SUCCESSFUL business.

Every business NG has touched has gone bust.

And the BNP is close to going bust too!

If it weren't for James Dowson it'd be more in the red.

One wonders what Mr. Dowson thinks of the pedophiles, homosexuals and pro-abortionists thriving in the BNP!

Brazilian President Will Seek to "Criminalize Words and Acts Offensive to Homosexuality"
Homosexual leader Luiz Mott urges homosexuals to "kill in legitimate defense"

BELEN, BRAZIL, April 30, 2009 ( - Brazilian President Luiz Lula is promising homosexual leaders that he will continue to seek to criminalize speech that is critical of homosexuality.

In a written address delivered to the Third Congress of the Brazilian Association of Gays, Lesbians, Bisexuals, Transvestites, and Transsexuals (ABGLT), Lula denounced groups, most of them Christian, who have objected to plans to outlaw such speech, calling them "hypocrites."

"Some backward as well as hypocritical sectors ... have criticized our government for supporting initiatives that criminalize words or acts that are offensive to homosexuality," he wrote. "That has no importance. I will continue, with the support of the entire government, to maintain that attitude."

As LifeSiteNews has reported in the past, Lula has for several years sought to pass a "homophobia law" that would make it a crime to criticize homosexual behavior.

Although he has failed to achieve his goal as of yet, in many cases Brazilian courts already enforce existing laws as if they prohibit such speech. Religious groups and individuals have been censored and fined for criticizing homosexual behavior, including one organization whose pro-family campaign was canceled by court order.

Julio Severo, one of Brazil's most famous pro-life and pro-family activists, fled the country recently after investigators sought his address following a complaint of "homophobia" lodged against him. He now lives in exile in an undisclosed location (see LifeSiteNews coverage at

At the same conference, Brazil's most influential homosexual leader, Luiz Mott, called on homosexuals to kill attackers in "legitimate defense" according to the homosexual website A Capa.

Citing statistics indicating an increase in the number of murders of homosexuals over the previous year, Mott stated that "if in the next poll this number increases, we must radicalize. And for that purpose we are going to have a campaign where we say 'Kill in legitimate defense, protect yourself."

Although Mott's organization, the Gay Association of Bahia, claims that "homophobic" murders are high, its counts define all murders of all homosexuals as acts of "homophobia," even when they involve male prostitutes apparently killed by a john.

Moreover, the total murder rate for homosexuals documented by Mott is significantly lower than the overall murder rate, per capita, in Brazil, as LifeSiteNews has previously reported. While the overall rate is 28 per 100,000 people, the rate of murders of homosexuals in Brazil is 1.31 per 100,000, according to Mott's statistics.

Homosexualist leaders reacted with alarm to Mott's statements, according to A Capa.

Caio Varela, an advisor to Brazilian Senator Fatima Cleide, complained that "he doesn't understand that tomorrow some queer out there at the end of the world might read that in some site or publication and commit a crime."

Fraud accused Kirklees racial equality boss in court

Fraud accused racial equality boss in court

THE FORMER head of a collapsed racial equality council appeared before Huddersfield Magistrates yesterday charged with fraud.

Carl Hayes, the former chief executive of folded Kirklees Equality and Human Right Organisation (KEHRA), is accused of obtaining services by deception on October 24 2006.

Hayes, 39, of Durkar, Wakefield, is accused of submitting a false application to a recruitment agency and Kirklees Racial Equality Council which became KEHRA. He was bailed to appear before at Huddersfield magistrates on June 11 for committal to the crown court.

KEHRA folded in September after Kirklees Council withdrew its £100,000-a-year funding for the organisation. At its time of closing KEHRA had about 500 members and was dealing with 150 immigration and 70 racial harassment cases.

Kirklees Racial Equality Council, which was relaunched as KEHRA in July, ran projects including Breaking Barriers, Building Bridges, a scheme to promote harmony among young people from diverse ethnic backgrounds.
