Thanks to an anonymous reader, I realized the documentary I've posted here is flagrantly biased, and treats the EDL as badly as the KKK. I certainly am not disregarding the EDL as a racist organization, only the racist members of it. This documentary should be taken with a grain of salt, as it is the only one I can find.
Every organization has its extremists and racists, and should not be defined by them if it is in general a peaceful movement. The extremists must be condemned, not the movement as a whole. That's what this blog is about, after all.

Can't how I feel about this just yet... a right-wing English movement that has exploded onto the streets of London determined to protect Britain from Shariah Law. I support the cause, but I'm not liking the extremism and racism the video unearths. Of course, the video is flagrantly biased against the group, so they've probably purposely focused on the bad aspects of the group while excluding the positive. It's definitely not to be considered the primary source on the EDL.
I saw this coming though. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. The British government has appeased Muslim radicals in their country for years. Societally speaking, this is the only next logical expectation. It might or might not be 100% morally right, but hey, neither are the jihadis.
I'm curious to know what you all think.
