The Guardian: Nigel Farage accuses Jo Cox's widower of supporting extremism

The Guardian: Nigel Farage accuses Jo Cox's widower of supporting extremism

Nigel Farage has become embroiled in a very public row with the widower of Jo Cox, accusing him of links to extremism because the trust set up in the murdered MP’s name supports a group which has previously challenged the Ukip politician.

Farage faced a barrage of criticism for suggesting that Brendan Cox “would know more about extremists than me” because of his connections to Hope Not Hate, a campaigning charity which seeks to combat political militancy, especially from far-right groups.

Speaking on LBC radio, Farage, who has previously accused Hope Not Hate of disrupting his public events, said the group pursued “violent and undemocratic means”.

This prompted Hope Not Hate to warn Farage that he faces legal action unless he rescinds the “political smear” and apologises. There was no response from Farage or Ukip about whether he would do this.


So according to Farage, a charity that opposes racial hatred is 'extremist.' He is such an evil clown, though I suspect he was probably confusing HOPE Not Hate with Antifa, thus showing his ignorance.
