So the battle of cable street was a major victory for anti fascism in England, but it was not the end of Oswald Moseley's movement or even fascism in the eastern of London as the times of Israel noted quote in the aftermath of it mostly henchmen issued blood-curdling threats. It is about time. The British people of the east in new that London's Pogam is not very far away. Now warned high-ranking thug. Mick Clarke Moseley's coming every night of the week in the future to rid east London. And by God, there is going to be a pogrom Pogam is when you murder bunch of Jewish people break their stuff. Yeah. Yeah. Moseley was not in the east end every night of the week. As a matter of fact, he flew off to Germany not long after the battle of cable street to get married at Joseph Gurbuz house. Oh could. Yep. Yeah. You did. Yeah. A nice house stolen. Yeah. Of course, you gotta go get go to the house. Gerbeau? Yeah. But Moseley's men stayed active in the east end the weekend after the battle of cable street was witness to the worst spree of anti semitic violence in the history of modern England, it's gone down in history. The pogrom of mile end two hundred of Moseley's blackshirts ran around Stepney, an eastern neighbourhood and shattered the shop and house windows of every Jewish family. They could find they tossed an old man in a girl through window, Manchester and Leeds also saw violent attacks. Some people argue that the battle of cable street wound up being a propaganda victory for the fascist. It's hard to say whether or not that is true. But membership in Moseley's group surged by two thousand people in the immediate wake of the battle. This surge was not evidence of long lived political viability, though, six months after cable street Moseley attempted a major electoral push for the BUF in the east end. He framed the decision as between us and the parties of jewelry and yet in spite of all that local blackshirts only earned one fifth of the vote cable street also lead to increased regulations on violent political groups, the police pushed par. Lament to pass a public order act. Among other things banned the wearing of political uniforms in public and gave the police the power to ban marches for political purposes. It also allowed police to arrest. Speakers who say directed violent rhetoric towards the Jews or other minority groups so you might argue that cable street will not decisive defeat of fascism prompted the government and police to actually do a damn thing about all the God damn fascist marching around in the streets. And that that help kill off the movement. Others would argue that the main effect of cable street in the immediate term was to let the Jews of London that they were not alone. Bernard copes was ten years old during the battle and a Jew. He would later tell the BBC quote. My mother said there were only two types of people in the world, Jews and Jewish leaders. Of course, when cable street came along the Irish, laborers dockers came out, and it was them that really made. Sure Moseley didn't get through my mother and father really had to change their minds after that and accept that. Others did come to help us out so complicated legacy. Yeah. The British union fascist stop wearing their blackshirts after cable street, but Moseley continued to be. A major part of British political life for years to come. He diverted his focus away from the Jewish question and rewrote himself. As a defender of peace. Of course, this was peace with the Nazis because Oswald, really quite like, the Nazis more palatable to the broader British public straight racial hatred. He developed a brilliant slogan during this period, you wanna you wanna guess what that slogan was killed Britain. I is it. America for. No. That would not have that was my second. Guess. No. In britain. I. In fact, himself working more and more with Neville Chamberlain governments in its efforts to appease Zeman's, the BUF hit its greatest number of members fifty thousand in nineteen thirty four, but it continued to remain a force in British politics until nineteen forty in nineteen thirty nine mostly was able to attract twenty thousand people to a peace rally things, of course, changed rather abruptly winning Lind went to war with the Nazi Germany. The view F was banned having never succeeded in gaining parliamentary representation the government turned many prominent members of the BU after the war. Let's they act as an enemy fifth column. Inside England Moseley was initially moved to Brixton prison, but eventually upgraded to the nicer Holloway prison when he got sick at of Winston Churchill's desire that he not die in become a martyr which. Reasonable. Yeah. Gain a lot going on the things criticized Churchill about whatever one. Yeah. I get that after the war Moseley attempted to rebrand himself as normal conservative politician. He formed the union movement and ran for parliament again in nineteen fifty nine right after the Notting hill race riots. According to the telegraph, quote, his campaign called for forced repatriation of Caribbean. Immigrants and prohibition on mixed marriage. He's just a Nazi and a slightly more advanced day. He never again succeeded in gaining significant political standing when he died in nineteen eighty he left behind a legacy of hatred and bigotry that persist in the UK to this day the organization Britain, I was founded in two thousand eleven by former members of the British National Party, it campaigns against multiculturalism with Christian patrols of Muslim neighborhoods in mosques its name was of course, spawned by that rally held by Oswald. Moseley nineteen thirty nine in two thousand seventeen Britain first campaigners edited together, a false video purporting to show a Muslim man attacking a woman on crutches. They tweeted this video out, and it was re tweeted by President Donald Trump when President Donald Trump was criticized for this White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said whether it's a real video the threat is real. In March two thousand nineteen a piece of shit shot and killed fifty people at two mosques in Christchurch New Zealand. He published a manifesto online in noted sir Oswald Mosley as his number one ideological influence, obviously, quite a lot of what he wrote in that manifesto was calculated nonsense, but not this over and over again throughout the manifesto. The shooter expressed clear mostly views, he believed white countries should be completely independent both economically and in terms of their population. They should be cut off from immigration from the rest of the world. His desire was for the white world to remain in a state of autarky and in to multiculturalism, and so more than eighty years after the battle of cable street the ideals of Oswal mostly live on. As they dont. Yeah.

"Woman. Good on you Irish. He probably deserved it. Yeah. I mean, you know, I a lot of problems with the IRA, but in in nineteen thirty's not the guys on the wrong side of the conflict. Different story later on another behind the baskets, another buying the bastards. Yeah. Joyce would later gain prominence in life as Lord Hawke casting pro Nazi propaganda from Germany into England during the course of the war. He was executed in nineteen forty six for these crimes. But during the nineteen thirties he was a member of the UF and its first prominent anti Semite, according to the death of British fascism, quote, BUF policy initially forced Joyce to temper his violently anti semitic views Moseley's position on anti semitism. Was clear it was a relevant to fascism, despite this handicap to Joyce's ideology, his talent for incisive rhetoric soon made him the most renowned speaker in the UF after Moseley himself. So Joyce was made the BUF's propaganda director in nineteen thirty four. He gradually started to pepper in more and more antisemitism with his pro fascist rants. He repeatedly stated that the core of all Britain's problems was Jewish people. He ranted about quote, a two pronged Jewish advance by means of capitalism and communism towards world domination. Yeah. Here we go you'll eat one prong. Well, and you know capitalism and communism are clearly two prongs of the same. Prong of which is bitcoin. They didn't have a term for it. Then he didn't have it. They hadn't figured it out. It was still waiting to get mind at a numbers. Yeah. You discovered bitcoin number earth, the third prong. Feel like we figured that out. Now Joyce was far from the only inveterate racist in the British union. Fascists many of Moseley earliest followers. We're sues super anti-jewish. I spelled it that way. Emphasize that you do pump is one cream now when he was questioned about this mostly would claim that these men were allowed in the US because he knew that in spite of their bigotry they wanted to move past that into a bigger and better fight. How do you reason with that nonsense nonsense? I mean reasoning might be a strong. Bigotry leads to the bitter things. I guess that's how you reason it nonsense. Yeah. You might reason it with like, I mean these phone I wanna talk. On to it. But yeah, where's your justification? Right. Like, it's just nonsense. And I wanna have I think they need to talking to your you're gonna give talking to antisemitism. I think I would like to talk to anti semitism real on the horn. Let's see what we can get. Hello concept of antisemitism. Cody, Cody would like to talk to you. He's on speaker. What? Come on. What are you doing? Giveaway to be the voice of anti semitism without just like saying anti semitic profit. Right. Yeah. Problematic. Just move on this bit. Sure my point being. That's nonsense. Taken. Well, mostly continued to assert that anti semitism had no place in his party. The realities in the street were quite different British Jews and fascist activists clash constantly in the back alleys and byways of London in April nineteen thirty three London. Police arrested seven BUF UF members six Jewish people for disturbing the peace the fascist been outselling copies of black shirt. In a nude in a Jewish neighborhood. They'd been attacked by a group of local Jews who knew damn, well, what was going on in Germany and didn't believe a word of Moseley's. We're non fascists line. Everyone involved was arrested, but nobody was charged. This sparked another streetfight the week later when twelve members of the BUF return to the same street corner to hawk their racist. Wears three of the fascist were injured and one was hospitalized. Eight Jews were arrested. The officer who booked them noted that the fascist had been extremely provocative prior to the fight incidents like this and even bloodier than this grew more common view of expanded and slid further towards outright racism, although fence to me like the anti-fascists here. The violent ones. It sounds like these guys were just handing out some anti-jewish propaganda in Jewish neighborhood of an ideology that was leading to Jewish people being put in camps in another country, not very far away. And then these violent people decided to tack them it. Yeah. The first part of what you said. I mean, you use too many words to describe your free speech, free speech. They were doing we're doing a Free State. We're doing free speech, and these these monsters showed up like an hated their free speech for no reason. Yeah, they did the hate speech. They did they hate speech against their free speech. Just because they hated what they were saying I never thought I'd I'd be supportive of fascism here. We are. It's just, you know, free speech. We don't need to analyze the question of free speech any more than that. No. And there's no way in which advocating for an ideology that led to six million people being burnt alive in in ovens and gas to death, and such there's no there's no way in which that is advocating for that speech is comparable to yelling fire. Crowded theatre. No, no, no way, shape or form. I couldn't I couldn't even like describe it in a way that that could be argued. Yeah. Let's read the next. The Jewish community. England was divided as to how to respond to the BUF. Some people obviously, preferred punching fascists to dialogue. The mini felt like the violence was counterproductive on August. Fourth nineteen thirty-three the Jewish chronicle Jewish attacks on BUF activists wicked and stupid. This kind of nation was not enough to change most people's beliefs that fascism had to be confronted violently in the streets. Rather than debate the US official turning point towards open proud antisemitism was the Olympia rally, which is the rally we talked about in the last episode disruptors Moseley gave his first anti-jewish address on Tober twenty eighth nineteen thirty four this marked the very first time. He referenced the Jews in a speech saying, quote, the Jews more than any other single force in this country are carrying on a violent propaganda against us Oswald. Moseley then stated with zero evidence that thirty two of the thirty four people convicted for violent attacks on fascists had been Jewish Moseley claim that in total Jewish people responsible for fifty percent of all attacks on his men. Now, it's. To say how much of this was ideological based on deeply felt beliefs in how much of it was just due to Seoul. This politicking the death of British fascism notes. Much of the shift in ideology can be attributed to an effort to win over the urban working class mostly hoped to fill a niche in anti immigrant propaganda present in Britain for decades organizations such as the British brothers league had gained significant following an urban areas in previous years, four hundred nineteen o to the league, spouse and anti semitic platform seeking to limit Jewish immigration from eastern Europe. It's limited success can be attributed to the traditional friction of the working class with large immigrant populations during times of scarcity perceived competition over jobs customers and culture led to reactions from native Britons conditions in nineteen thirty four were ripe for this kind of clash and Moseley hope to capitalize with a New Britain for the British policy. Thereby further marginalizing British Jewish immigrants. Yeah. Yep. Yeah. A lot about me. But nothing like anything that ever happened afterwards written for Britain for British people. Did you know that like Jewishness and immigrants and Marxism are all the same thing. We'll of course, Cody because of the of the famous Jew Karl Marx. Yes. As yet. The creator highly mayo man as as the off described German Jew car. Car as described by the creative the Daily Mail, the largest English language newspaper world. Yeah. I I've I feel confident where how? Trading is how the left owns the media. I've I've I've noticed that to notice. At the same. As those three things that I mentioned at the same of those three things you mentioned those things why don't people realize this. I should there's like more media like public figures would say the truth about how those four things are the same. Cody. I have some great news about a fellow named Dr Jordan Peterson. You're gonna love this guy right books as you have good. Name and pajamas with lobsters on them for some reason. I buy them. Absolutely. Okay. But what if I want those lobsters on like an iphone case, you'll get that along with your Cup of leftist tears. I love society six patients.

We'll we're always thinking about it always thinking about it is that is true. I think about it a lot now because one pump is in fact one cream. Doesn't very good stamina pump is one cream puff his green. You know, who wouldn't have agreed with that? A little fascist. Oh, no. It was actually six foot two don't say named Oswal Moseley six foot to Oswald. Tommy Moseley didn't think that one pump was one cream. I don't think he did.

And I was listening like it sounds like this guy is probably going to be on board with one pump one piloting except for that one time. But he's trying to impress his mom.

Ndo thirty days after opening I feel like it's been more than thirty days since we. No. But we don't know. We don't know what it was opened. Yeah. So back to Oswald Moseley Moseley Oswal telling you six. Anti semitism was obviously the cornerstone of German fascism, but it was not nearly as prominent in Italian or Spanish fascism. Those sorts of attitudes were still quite common in both countries. But it was more the result of centuries at bigotry rather than the highly evolved. Eliminationist antisemitism practiced by the Nazis Moseley in public at least declared that anti semitism was completely separate from fascism. He refused to let the BUF distribute anti semitic propaganda, which led to one of his further right opponents in the imperial fascist league to declare the British union, fascists the British junion a fascist hole dig s. You're right on there. But did you get this is union, but he made it, oh, even get that part? Kinda kinda react again. Yes. I feel like that's what it deserve. Yeah. We'll give it its due in nineteen thirty-three Moseley gave a statement to the Jewish chronicle in which he swore that quote, anti semitism forms. No part of the policy of this organization in antisemitic propaganda is forbidden, but while the propaganda was forbidden antisemites themselves. Very much allowed in the BU. F? One of the most notorious speakers was also one of England's most notorious racists, William Brooke Joyce was an Anglo Irish firebrand who got his political start working Currier for British army intelligence against the Irish Republican Army in the mid twenties. He became a conservative political activists during a nineteen twenty four meeting for a candidate. He supported Joyce claims. He was slashed across the cheek by Jewish communist with a razor blade leaving a prominent scar. That he'd have for the rest of his life in nineteen Ninety-two Joyce's biographer talked to his first wife who claimed quote, it wasn't a Jewish communist who disfigured him. He was knifed by an Irish woman.

"I think I think again, it's not particularly surprising that that women are attracted at some in the minority of course to populist nationalist movements. This is a consistent over time. What we have to be careful about though is differentiating women's political engagement from feminist political engagement. Women have always been involved in politics across the spectrum, and but we assume that win. Women are volved in politics. They must have some kind of feminist agenda or are motivated by a feminist. You know, a feminist agenda in that, of course, is not the case. When you look at the leadership of these far right movements, melting, the pen and so forth. You see that these these populist movements can often put women at at the head us women as figureheads. It's symbolic leaders as well as a titular leaders. And, and this gives this false impression that what these women are doing is kind of fulfilling some kind of a feminist agenda. And that's not the case. Women can be active in politics without being concerned with the rest of women does. Did you think this awareness in any way helps us to understand the far rice better or even to, you know, if if if you consider it a problem to to treat us. Absolutely. And if you look at, you know, let's not forget in the other dimension. And that's women and anti-fascist politics. Women are too often the victims of fascist aggression, fascist violence outlets. Let's think of some very recent examples in our own history at Charlottesville the the murder of Joe Cox 'em pay. I mean, these are are very important. Symbolic. An intangible examples of the aggression that is unleashed on women within the far right. So we shouldn't. You know, there's often women are used by the far right to provide this kind of near of decency to the movement. But in fact, when when push comes to shove, women are too often the victims tangibly symbolically of of far-right aggression of this angry white men culture. Yeah. Is it a hostile church, you think for the women who join us? We often think of a far I polish six as being quite conservative and progressive and old fashioned, but let me clearly it's it's as modern as any type of politics because it exists today, but are are women treatises on. Fairly within it. Well, it really depends on movement to movement and often as we've seen women are embraced by these movements because they are, you know, they provide a really important kind of electoral poll for for other women and for men as well. I mean, if you look back at the movement that I studied the British union of fascists which emerged in nineteen thirty, two in Britain was active until the second World War had a very complicated relationship with women, and and it often Oswald Moseley and his cohort looked at women as as as kind of as kind of temptresses for the movement that they brought men into the movement. And you know an end, the women in the movement were diverse law as well. A surprisingly shockingly, in the case of of the British union fascists three of the leading members of of the women's section had been former Suffragettes, so that's totally counter intuitive. But here these women kind of saw the. Fulfillment of their militancy at from suffrage days in the fascist politics at the nineteen thirties. Okay.
