UK Muslims Target Returning Troops' Homecoming Parade

Now, it's true we have our own treasonous scum here on this side of the pond - but at least Code Pink are homegrown. We didn't import them:

Screaming hate and brandishing vile placards, Muslim extremists and far-Right groups clashed yesterday in ugly scenes that marred a parade by soldiers.

Around 40 members of a group called Muslims Against the Crusades (MAC) arrived with inflammatory banners featuring slogans such as 'Butchers return' and 'What are you dying for? £18k'.

They were soon confronted by 100 people, some wearing English Defence League T-shirts, who shouted 'scum' and 'Muslim bombers off our streets'.

Police, who had received intelligence warning of trouble at the march in Barking, Essex, separated the groups behind barriers on opposite sides of the road.

But violence flared after 200 soldiers from 1st Battalion Royal Anglian Regiment - who lost five men in a recent tour of Afghanistan and had been granted freedom of the borough - marched past thousands of well-wishers.

The clashes came little over a year after Muslim extremists screamed 'baby killers' and 'rapists' at soldiers from 2nd Battalion Royal Anglian Regiment parading through Luton after a tour of duty in Iraq.

Members of the public who traveled to Barking yesterday to cheer the troops said they were 'disgusted' by what happened.

Charlene Byrne, 24, whose boyfriend Lance Corporal Scott Hardy was killed in an explosion near Musa Qala on March 16, said: 'They should never have been allowed to hijack this. Not everyone supports what's happening in Afghanistan - but they shouldn't take it out on the soldiers.'

Alex Mitchelson, 18, whose brother has completed two tours of Afghanistan, said: 'He would been disgusted by what happened here today. I had Muslim protesters racially abusing me as I walked by.'

The leader of Barking and Dagenham Council recently wrote to Home Secretary Theresa May asking her to ban MAC because he feared its extremist propaganda could cause violence.

Liam Smith acted after MAC posters about the protest, showing a bomber bursting through a flag of St George, appeared on the town's war memorial. Previous leaflets depicted British soldiers beside a bloody puddle in the shape of a skull.

Mr Smith said: 'We don't want these people with their hate-filled agenda in our borough.'

The MAC members - one of whom allegedly spat at a soldier - left after police gave them safe passage to Barking underground station by forming a human wall.

Note the quaking, whinging political correctness in this Daily Mail story - equating the 'far right' English Defense League, who came to defend their country and their soldiers with a bunch of Islamist thugs who despise everything Britain stands for except the welfare benefits they receive.

According to the article, after the spitting incident the pro-troop contingent finally lost patience with these fascists and their insults and waded into them, which is when the police formed a wall and gave the MAC an escort to the nearest subway.

Hopefully they took their time about it, so that a few members of the MAC will display some physical souvenirs as a reminder to be careful about insulting British troops in front of a home town crowd.

Freedom of speech means you can legally say what you want,but it doesn't mean there aren't any consequences.

please helps me write more gooder!
