Peter Tatchell is a political scoundrel of the first order.
In the following piece Tatchell lines up with the now notorious Harry´s Place in creating an equivalence between the Woolwich now notorious beheaders and the English Defence League.
How can Tatchell do this? The EDL is OPPOSING the forces that caused the beheading in broad daylight of the soldier, a product itself of Sharia Law.
But Tatchell is saying that these beheaders of Sharia are equal to the EDL members.
How can Tatchell get away with this. Only perhaps because there is a campaign of hatred being forced on the British public against the EDL.
themarxistblog will follow this campaign and we will fight to defend the EDL from the likes of Tatchell.
We warn you Tatchell your politics are under our political microscope!

The BNP & EDL claim to oppose Islamist extremist bigotry but in reality they generalise and abuse all Muslims. Many of their protests are menacing, even violent.
Islam is not the main problem. Islamist fundamentalism and violent jihad are what we should focus on opposing. It is important to make a clear distinction between Muslims and Islamist extremists. Don’t confuse the two. Unite to isolate the main threats: the Islamist far right and its BNP and EDL equivalents.
I support today’s Unite Against Fascism (UAF) counter-protest against the BNP. But UAF is not consistent. UAF commendably opposes the BNP and EDL but it is silent about Islamist fascists who promote anti-Semitism, homophobia, sexism and sectarian attacks on non-extremist Muslims.
This silence and inaction by the UAF is a shocking betrayal of Muslim people – abandoning them to the Islamist far right.
Islamist fascists want to overthrow democracy, establish a clerical dictatorship, suppress human rights and kill Muslims who don’t conform to their hard-line interpretation of Islam.
It is time the UAF campaigned against the Islamist far right, as well as against the EDL and BNP far right.
