With hindsight it seems Farage did not act on principles but seemingly for personal gain in the IndDemGroup as he seems all too willing to prostitute his party, his Country and his principles now that it happens to suit him financially and in terms of authority in forming his squalid Pan EU Political Party grouping of The EFD.
It is also noted his untrustworthy and duplicitous little side kick Mark Croucher is also acting with Farage to assist in the promotion of this Racist homophobic claque when previously he made much of telling lies about people to try to damage them by falsely branding them as anti Jewish, BNP supporters and anti homosexual based on his own concocted lies. We note it is he who actually practices and assists these disgusting values!
The Danish People's Party (DPP), rejected by the British Conservatives, has been condemned by the Paris based European Jewish Congress for its approach to the question of immigration. It has also been accused of Islamophobia.
Morten Messerchmidt is one of the DPP's new MEPs. In 2002 he was sentenced to prison for racially motivated offences. In April 2007 he was reported to have been drunk in a restaurant in Copenhagen, and was seen "Heiling Hitler". Messerchmidt subsequently admitted singing Nazi songs at the restaurant. The incident caused him to temporarily resign from his position in the government.
Messerchmidt is a former assistant to Mogens Camre MEP, himself reported to the police for possible violations of anti-racism legislation in 2007.
And Farage has the nerve to condemn the BNP!
And what about the odious Nuttall? He can't bear to be in the same room as Nick Griffin and yet is quite happy to sit with these fascists! Hypocrite!
Morten Messerschmidt & the Danish People's Party
Morten Messerschmidt (b. Nov 13, 1980, Frederikssund, Denmark), is a Danish MEP. He is a member of the Danish People's Party, and sits in the EFD group in the European Parliament.
Prior to his election to the European Parliament in 2009, he was a member of the Danish Parliament, but was enmired in controversy following a scandal in which was seen "Heiling Hitler" in a tourist bar in Tivoli, Copenhagen. He has denied the act, although admits to having sung Nazi marching songs in the bar. Several witnesses testified in court that Messerschmidt publically gave the Nazi salute. (13)
This was not Messerschmidt's first transgression. In 2002, Messerschmidt received a 14 day conditional jail sentence for violation of Danish Penal Code 266b (the "racism clause"). This related to an advert he and three fellow directors of the Danish People's
Party Youth had placed in a magazine, stating that rape and violence were the result of a multi-ethnic society (14). The court said that the campaign was so brutal that the four should be punished for propaganda activities, reported DR, the Danish broadcasting corporation.
Messerschmidt has called for a racially-based pan-EU immigration policy. In an interview in 2006, he said: "Talking of what can be done in the European countries, I think we need three sets of rules of immigration. One for Europeans, who will be regulated by EU-law. One for people from the rest of the Western World, including parts of East Asia, South America, etc. And then a third set of rules for the third world, who in general do not really offer anything we can benefit from, speaking of education, labour craft and knowledge."
The leader of the Danish People's Party is Pia Kjærsgaard.
She had been a leading figure of the Danish Progress Party since the mid-1980s. In fact, she was called in as a temporary replacement for Mogens Glistrup when he was imprisoned for tax fraud in 1984. By the time of Glistrup's release, in 1987, Kjærsgaard had created a strong platform within the party, and was reluctant to give up her strong position. Although Glistrup's position was weakened and he was actually expelled from the party in 1990 Kjærsgaard had to fight against his legacy as well as against strong factions identifying with the more anarchist protest-oriented profile of the Progress Party's earlier days. In the mid-1990s, a group led by Kjærsgaard left the party and founded the Danish People's party. In their first electoral outing, in 1998, they achieved 7.2% of the vote. (15).
In 1998, she was reported as stating that "I do not want Denmark to become a multiethnic society," and "I think we already have too many foreigners in Denmark. They are different people...they don't belong here". (16).
During a debate on immigration in 1999, Prime Minister Poul Rasmussen compared the Danish People's Party's xenophobic policies to those of Nazi Germany (17).
Kjærsgaard replied that "at least his childhood home had been clean".
This was construed by some observers as a reference to the fact that Rasmussen had recently admitted that his own father had been a member of the Nazi party.
In 2001, in her party's weekly newsletter, Kjærsgaard referred to Muslims as people who "...lie, cheat and deceive." She was reported to the police by the Danish Centre for Racial Discrimination, for her remarks, although no prosecution ensued (18).
In 2002, she was fined 3,000 Krone for threatening a woman with pepper spray (19). In 2003, she lost a libel action in the Supreme Court against Karen Sunds, who had described the Danish People's Party as being racist. The court held that Sunds' description had been accurate (20).
In 2006, a Danish newspaper revealed that undercover journalists posing as members of the neo-Nazi Dansk Front had been given the okay to join the Danish People's Party, so long as they kept their far-right views private, by half of a party district committee (21).
In December 2009, Kjærsgaard called for councils to force toddlers from "vulnerable families" into crèches on pain of losing benefits, before they grow up into "gang members". She was referring mostly to immigrant families, she subsequently explained (22).
