    Default Jo Cox

    Seems like the whole political divide just took a waaaay darker turn.

    Hope she survives this, no-one should get killed over their political beliefs.

    There are rumours of it being a brexit related attack, with the attacker supposedly shouting "Britain First!".

    Read about that "Britain first" shouting too. We'll have to wait and see what the police can find out about the assassin.

    But boy, does that stink! Two little children just lost their mum.

    I don't want to sound mean but I wonder what impact that will have on the referendum.

    "Britain First" is a far right racist organisation founded by a former Northern Ireland Loyalist terrorist and led by an ex-BNP councillor. I doubt this has anythng to do with the referendum.

    There are times I wish they’d just ban everything- baccy and beer, burgers and bangers, and all the rest- once and for all. Instead, they creep forward one apparently tiny step at a time. It’s like being executed with a bacon slicer.

    Birstall is a smallish village where everyone knows each other if only by sight. This guy was known in the area.

    I see that scum are already trying to tar the leave campaign.

    Don't worry you have already won by doubting the EU-supremacy. That assasiination is really horrible, I sense a false flag but things probably are just what they are, I have a habit of being wrong

    Brendan Cox the husband of the now deceased MP has set up a Gofundme which imburses 3 organisations one of which is the Syrian White Helmets an organisation who's leader is barred from entering the USA on grounds of terrorism the White Helmets operate in terrorist held areas such as Al-Nusra. Either he is Naive about who he is funding or know's who they are, because you wouldn't willy nilly give away money without research into an organisation.

    [/SIZE]
    In celebration and memory of Jo Cox, we are raising funds to support charities closest to her heart, chosen by her family:

    The Royal Voluntary Service, to support volunteers helping combat loneliness in Jo's constituency, Batley and Spen in West Yorkshire.

    HOPE not hate, who seek to challenge and defeat the politics of hate and extremism within local communities across Britain.

    The White Helmets: volunteer search and rescue workers in Syria. Unarmed and neutral, these heroes have saved more than 51,000 lives from under the rubble and bring hope to the region.

    Let's come together and give what we can to help create that better world.
    WHITE HELMETS


    Something is odd about this couple she was advocating British involvement in Syria, the husband's full time occupation was social justice and doesn't have a proper job he was recently on the Thames campaigning for the Remain campaign. The media has held her up as the martyr for the status quo / remain campaign, so quickly that is. I believe she was killed by the murderer due to her stance on immigration. She wanted more mass immigration and has voted against measures to curb it etc.

    So much for that. The post at the start of this page calling Cox's side "scum". The post above me attacking Cox's husband.

    shut up you im not attacking i dont know what made you so angry you've subcribed to the narrative of that brexit supporters have to shutup now or something, I'm finding this out myself I wanted to know a bit more on these people without the media steering me in any direction. Truth hurts because theres more than meets the eye.

    EDIT: This is just the tip of the iceberg of what I've discovered.

    Truth hurts, but bad grammar hurts more. It's the mark of the ill-educated.

    Wasn't directed at you but at the the post you responded to. The backroom is a place of chivalry, not of ordinary insult.

    The idiot who killed that idiot definately seems to be ideolically motivated, 'death to traiters'. You aren't helping dumbass. We need a brexit for a nexit.

    How quickly the respect for the deceased vanishes these days on these boards.

    Only one idiot actually showed disrespect on this board and he was a 5 post blunder that dissapeared after getting rejected, we arent at the level you say we are quite yet.

    I'm telling you guys something is not right how the hell did the SPLC an organisation in America manage to get private reciepts of Tommy Mair's Book purchases dating back to the 1990's on the same day of the attack, they won't state their sources. Don't you think that's odd?

    And this https://forums.totalwar.org/vb/showt...post2053704338

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...#ixzz4C2eFfx86


    Brendan Cox has left no stone unturned and rushed to politicized her death, even making a GoFundme the day after. Which imburses unsavoury characters as you can read here whats that saying about flagging a dead horse? Spotaneous actions of a griefing father? Also the tweets after her murder.

    EDIT: And i don't think I can be called disrespectful (Which is absurd to make the claim anyway) when you look at what Brendan Cox is doing. I think a few on here are actually being disrespectful to me. ↓↓

    Actually he didn't mention left at all, just expressing disgust at anyone making political capital out of it which is a feeling anyone should share.

    He talked about "scum trying to tar the leave campaign". On this forum, particularly in this thread, I've not seen any pro-remain posters trying to do so. Pro-leave posters, OTOH. In Lizardo's previous version of his post, apparently it was something to do with Jews as well.

    We're talking about IA, who probably has a life outside this forum and could be talking about the inescapable number of mongoloids both on and off the internet going "It's those darn brexiteer's fearmoungering that's to blame" that he assumes we have been similarly exposed to.

    It's hard to miss without blocking every piece of media regarding the referendum.

    Yes I was going to state the SPLC is a Jewish organisation, that focuses on mainly Jewish issues but I thought some people might take it the wrong way and think I'm a rabid anti semite for some reason, so i left the jewish bit out.
