Anthony Watts-Up & the BNP

Posted on July 20, 2010


Nick Griffin of the British National Party—perhaps you didn’t know—was convicted in 1998 for inciting racial hatred.  The following is a sample of Nick Griffin’s thinking:

I am well aware that the orthodox opinion is that six million Jews were gassed and cremated and turned into lampshades. Orthodox opinion also once held that the world is flat.

Many in the UK refer to the BNP as the “British Nazi Party”, and not merely because of its leader.   The leader is not the only member of the party with highly questionable views.

So why bring them up?  Well, the BNP and Nick Griffin are heavily into climate change denial, and because of this they have found a friend across the water.

Recently Anthony Watts-Up, disgruntled weatherman and climate change denier supreme, has taken to quoting Nick Griffin and the British National Party.

Here’s where you should go for the truth, says Anthony.

NASA?  No, sir.  Anthony is on record as not trusting NASA.

NOAA, the National Academy of Sciences?  Uh, uh.  Anthony really doesn’t trust those guys.

He doesn’t believe scientists.  Refuses to quote them.  No, but Mr. Watts-Up will believe (and quote) a convicted Holocaust denier.

Here is Watts-Up providing a link to the BNP.

And here he is doing it again.

And here he is doing it on his own blog.

But I dunno.  Seems kind of doubtful to me, Anthony.

Maybe deniers instinctively like deniers.

But, dear fellow, dear Mr. Watts, if this is an example of your sources, if this is an example of the quality of your research, I think I’m beginning to understand how you could arrive at such bonehead conclusions about climate change in the first place.

You’re just plain stupid.
