    I haven't kept up with the BNP much since Nick Griffin replaced John Tindall. The latter had direct connections with our local network of Nazi's and white supremacists as did David Irving, so they came across my radar in the late eighties/early nineties. I've taken notice of the BNP from time to time, such as when they won election in the Isle of Dogs or when Griffin got into the Euro Parliament but not much else.

    A couple of points. In the Southern states it simply isn't true that "everyone" knows that the Klan is bad news. Among white Southerners the myth of the Klan as promoted by Birth of a Nation still retains a grip. Second, the candidacy of Pat Buchanan for the GOP Presidential nomination provided a bridge for white supremacists in the south to enter the GOP in numbers greater than they had previously. In some respects you could argue that the white supremacists and Nazis have already succeeded in mainstreaming themselves, practically if not politically, in this region.  

    Nothing human is alien to me.
