Not all those who demonstrated in Brighton and Hove were fascists but a good proportion were. I received an email a week ago from the outright neo-Nazi Patriotic Alternative boasting that
‘Patriotic Alternative has led the charge to oppose this clear attempt to introduce children to sexualised material.’
We were accused by them of being paedophiles (a favourite accusation of neo-Nazis), grooming children and we were otherwise subject to abuse from these low lives. The irony is that it is the far right which has always contained within it numerous child abusers and paedophiles. Ctd....
