Herr Kommandant John Rees
Speaking alongside the right wing Islamist fanatic Ibrahim Mousawi at Friday’s Reichsmeeting of Bristol’s Stop the War Coalition was none other than John Rees.
This nasty little goatee-bearded mini-Fuhrer is actually a west country boy from Chippenham, where – in a town that returns BNP councillors – he still probably manages to be the place’s most high-profile and notorious exponent of far right wing racist violence ever.
Rees is also a leader of the creepy Marxist/Trotskyist cult, the Socialist Workers Party (SWP), basically a bunch out of control social workers hyped on a weird brand of Marxism straight out of the middle years of the last century; crazed levels of anti-American sentiment and the constant glorification of terrorist violence and mass death in the Middle East.
The SWP seized control of the weak leadership of UK’s Stop the War Coalition soon after its popular height in 2003 through the use of classical entryist tactics. And since gaining this control, they have – for reasons best known to themselves – deliberately led this once hugely popular and mainstream movement down a blind alley of insane support for various ultra-violent, right wing Islamist thugs across the Middle East.
Judging by his performance on Friday, Kommandant Rees, now also a leader of Stop the War, is not a man apparently plagued with self doubt – or familiar with any other form of self awareness for that matter – and seems to have an extraordinarily high opinion of himself while having only a passing acquaintance with reality. He blithely told the gathered ranks of Bristol’s Al-Loonie We’re-Encouraging-Some-Other-Poor-Brainwashed-Fucker-To-Be-A-Martyr’s Brigade on Friday evening:
If I had been alive during the Spanish Civil War I would have fought the fascists in Spain if I had a chance to do it. I am not a pacifist. If the Nazis had invaded and I had been alive, I would have fought them
The delusionary lunatic then went on to compare himself to the French resistance and the Italian partisans of World War 2 before providing us with a fascinating insight into his favoured holiday destination – that well-known playground of the poor and downtrodden – Tuscany!
Fighting talk indeed from Herr Kommandant Rees, a man who seems to have a full-time job encouraging extremist Arab Islamist groups to fight a vicious and unwinnable war of destruction with Israel from the comfort of a platform a mere 1,000 miles away from any danger.
What a brave and committed man.
