To understand just how intolerant British liberalism is, you just need to look to Oxford. The world-famous Oxford Union Debating Society invited two of the most reviled figures in Britain, Nick Griffin, head of the British National Party and David Irving, the revisionist historian made famous by being imprisoned in Austia for denying the accepted details about the Holocaust.

Just inviting them to speak and defend their views raised the ire of the head of the Equality and Human Rights Commission.  Julian Lewis, the Shadow Defence Minister resigning his life membership in the union in protest. These responses were mild compared to what happened on the night.

For inviting the two controversial speakers, the president of the society, Luke Tryl was subjected to chants of “Kill Tryl!” Some protesters attacked attendees with placards as they tried to enter. Others broke into the chamber and one tried to attack a member of the society’s staff. About 30 people sat in the debating hall singing protest songs.

It was 1960s hippies co-opting Islamic radical tactics.  After all, you have to work hard to look worse that Nick Griffin or David Irving, but the Unite Against Fascism group and their hangers on seem to have managed to do so.
