Is this racist?

Mr Griffin said the UK was "full-up" and it was time to "close the doors".

Is saying that racist, ok Nick Griffin is racist.

But if a normal guy/girl said that is it racist?

Surely the UK is getting overcrowded and has too many people in it, is that racist?

Surely its only racist if you start mentioning race?

Also, what is the view on this?

Send all polish people home - (Racist or not racist? If they are white and you are white, is that racist)

Send all somalians home (Racist or not racist? If they are black and you are white, is that racist)

I don't think it's racist, it doesn't mention or imply race

Both could be taken as racist as race is not purely about skin colour. In fact part of the problem in this country is that people base comments on skin colour. Grouping people together as 'black' is a very coarse, crude interpretation of race.

Should all British people be moved back to Britain if we are to 'send home' non-British citizens?

British attitude is we can go where we want, and do what we want. Always have been.

That was not the point, yes the BNP are racist.

What i was trying to find out is if someone else said that is it racist, because Nick Griffin said it, it is classed as racist. Is that comment, in itself, regardless of who said it, racist though?
banned#16
The statement in the OP isn't racist at all.

Nick Griffin on the other hand is a racist.

yep found it http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/election_2010/8639097.stm

other "highlights" include,

The BNP also plan to give grants to encourage some UK residents to return to "their lands of ethnic origin".

and,

"there should be absolutely no further immigration from any Muslim countries, as it presents one of the most deadly threats yet to the survival of our nation".

Anyone who thinks the full up comments aren't fuelled by racist facist views are either deluded, ignorant or racist

Yes, but they shouldn't incite racial hatred / disquiet from a position of responsibility.

nick griffin is the leader of the bnp, that comment was apparently made while he was launching the bnp manifesto, so i'd say it has rather a lot to do with bnp views and the other comments.

It has to be put into context and not hide the fact the comment is driven by his racist and facist leanings

Taken out of that context though?

If my view is that the uk is full, is that racist? And driven from racist and facist views?

This. This. This.

No one with any kind of education or common sense thinks that the BNP are a real political party. They are a front for hate-filled, racist ideals. Anyone who can't see that deserves to be deported.

I have no doubt that the "witty" BNP supporters here will have some sort of comeback to this but whatever their response, I am safe in the knowledge that if you actually do support the BNP, then I am a far better person than you will ever be.

Alfonse what if you think there is too many people in the world total (not any particular race)?
#38
This might help:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_and_dependencies_by_population_density

UK is quite densely populated, but hardly full up.

So why would anyone wish to claim that we are? We really would have to think about motive.

Then it's not racist because you aren't making a negative statement against a single race.

(Await witty response of : "human race lol")

what if i did think that?

why would I think that, its not like I can see that for myself from where I am now, on a tiny island more worried about my family, sorting out my shopping list, what wine to buy or who I;m gonna vote for. I like Britain its a nice place which is why its attractive, thats not a bad thing at all.
