The danger of violent right-wing extremism (in the light of the recent events in Halle, Germany) (debate)

  Louis Stedman-Bryce (NI), blue-card question. – I just think it is really interesting when I hear statements like the one that you have made. As a gay black man, I have been branded as a racist, homophobe, Nazi... by people that sit on the other side of the Chamber. I just think it is really hypocritical that you would say such things, and it is divisive. This isn’t about community, this isn’t about what you claim makes Europe. This is about nastiness, this is about racism, this is about creating hate – which is what we’re not about on this side of the Chamber.

So I suggest that you look at yourself and reflect on what you’re saying before you use this language, because the danger is that the language you are using when the real Nazis come along, when the real racists come along, you will not be able to identify them.
