On 19 February I posted regarding the support of the neo-Nazi parties for eugenic measures and how such advocacy leads down a slippery slope to the killing and/or sterilisation of disabled people as happened, in Nazi Germany under the Action T-4 Programme, (for my earlier post please see https://kevinmorris101.wordpress.com/2011/02/19/british-national-party-and-national-front-advocate-killing-of-the-disabled/). In this post I continue the theme of the far right’s obsession with eugenics.


In a post, on the British Democracy Forum, entitled “A Nationalism without Eugenics or an expansionist aim?” the following post appears, “Let’s debate why anyone would think that you can have Nationalism without eugenics or without something along the lines of “lebensraum” once the population

gets its head above water and starts to show signs of having life into the future.


I personally do not think such policies even need to be stated any more than one would state that Nationalism has to include an attempt to breathe fresh

air and drink clean water.


Surely we would like Britain to keep its colonies abroad and we would like to gently and humanely reverse the process that causes our low birth rate with

the present tragic slide into sickness, weakness and mental feebleness?


Does anyone have a well-reasoned counter argument?

block quote end (please see http://www.democracyforum.co.uk/bnp/87933-nationalism-without-eugenics-expansionist-aim.html).


The British Democracy Forum is utilised by many BNP members and supporters. It is, therefore a fair guess that the above post is written by a supporter and/or member of the BNP and that his views are shared by a fair proportion of that party. Turning to the content, what are we to make of “and we would like to gently and humanely reverse the process that causes our low birth rate with

the present tragic slide into sickness, weakness and mental feebleness? Would it be unfair to deduce that the poster is advocating the sterilisation of those he considers to be mentally or physically unfit to bring children into the world? I don’t think that we are being unfair if we conclude that the poster (without using the term) is advocating the use of sterilisation and that such measures have echoes of the policies pursued by National Socialist Germany. It is also noteworthy that he refers to the need for “lebensraum” which brings to mind Hitler’s expansion into the former Soviet Union in order to gain living space for the German people. Who, exactly are we to invade!


As mentioned in my previous post the BNP denies that it advocates eugenics. Gone are the days of John Tyndall (its former leader) when the BNP bookshop sold titles on eugenics and publications denying the holocaust. You will search in vain on the BNP’s website for material advocating eugenics or for titles denying that the “Final Solution” took place. However the mask slips at times. Witness this clip, from Youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7tp0fOPEMnU) in which the BNP’s leader, nick Griffin supports the idea of a referendum on whether criminals should be sterilised. For a party which states that it opposes eugenics this is, surely a little odd.


(to be continued).

    Before i laucnch into my anti-life rant: Only those who prove themselves worthy and able to bring up the next generation should be allowed to breed. The country is being brought to its knees by the cost of benefits and kids, so why let it get worse.

    What’s so special about creating more FUCKING LIFE anyway??????

    To paraphrase Sade’s views on life: We’re born, we eat, we shit, we fuck, we kill and then when we die.

    My own view on the miracle of life: Picture some blocked sewer, blocked with used tampons toilet paper and shit, and some rats fucking on this disgusting pile-up. The rats will breed, and their descendants will procreate in similar places. This will probably go on for ever, give or take; THAT IS THE MIRACLE OF LIFE.

    • Thank you for your comment.
      Who decides who is worthy to breed? Under the Nazi’s sterilisation law (which preceeded the T-4 Programme) it was a panel of doctors who made this decision. Are you proposing that such matters should be placed in the hands of the medical profession? If not who, exactly should, in your view take the decision as to who should be allowed to have children? On what basis should such decisions be made?
      Are you being wholly serious in your proposals or is your tongue in your cheek? If the former then I feel that you demonstrate a worrying disregard for human life. The views you expound (if taken to their logical conclusion) could lead to people being dragged, kicking and screaming into hospital to undergo sterilisation. Is that what you really want to happen in the UK in the 21st century?
