That's never going to happen though, because being a patriot doesn't necessarily mean not being a cunt. It's a wide spectrum of people.
But, I would say that anyone who looks at a couple of thousand patriots and sees a minority doing nazi salutes yet chooses to judge them all as such can't really peddle the old "not all Muslims are terrorists" line, can they?
Various shades of grey is the key point.
I havent judged them all Dave, I am sure many are there making their point correctly and fairly and so fair play to them but I personally would not want to be seen supporting an organisation with members openly displaying Nazi salutes despite agreeing with some of the points they are trying to make. I'd feel the same if I saw West Ham fans going round doing it also.
As for all muslims being terrorists or child molesters, only a moron would actually believe that.
Lets be honest though, marching achieves the square root of fuck all anyway so the whole protest has achieved nothing positive.
yeah, a march never changed on single thing in life, ever
i couldn't disagree more
why do people do it then? from the suffragettes to poll tax - you actually think every march has never changed anything whatsoever?
i'm sure you're just fishing but that's actually quite a naïve point
15-20,000 in Whitehall on any subject, will be firmly noted by the powers that be
probably the same as one in five voting ukip had zero impact on tory immigration policy?
what's your answer in a democracy then? vote, wait 4-5 years, vote again, the end?
heard this a thousand times, the old NIMBY - then people start lobbying their mp and arranging protest - to be seen to try to make change
