Brits yelling “make America great again”?

“Make America GREAT britain again!

[–]dasblog 406 points407 points  (36 children)

I'm assuming these guys are nationalists, and thus believe in some glorious ideal of a Britain that hasn't been spoiled by foreigners.

But...interrupting a speech seems like the least British thing they could do. If you consider yourself a true Brit, then you should sit there, shake your head and tut loudly. Or just do nothing, while seething inside. (Which is what most people watching the speech probably did when they started causing a fuss.) That's the British way. Maybe send an angry letter to a newspaper or complain to Points of View.

If you want to be truly bold, ask a passive aggressive question on Question Time...

Is there some sort of symbolism behind holding the American flag up that way or is he just an idiot?

[–]rattatally 6216 points6217 points  (69 children)

Yes, it symbolizes him being an idiot.

[–]Pnooms 591 points592 points  (52 children)

You see, his view of the flag looks right to him, so by his logic it must look right to everyone else!

[–]wishywashywonka[🍰] 96 points97 points  (4 children)

The best part of that was for all his effort, dude totally held the thing backwards.

I'm starting to think he might not know much about that flag.

[–]jmdg007 239 points240 points  (6 children)

It looks right to him, so it must be right for everyone

[–]Netherspark 1821 points1822 points  (252 children)

Had to go and read who the "white pendragons" were. All I could find were a handful of bad youtube videos about "taking back control from the tyrants" and about how they're "growing strong" and "putting the government in panic mode". Oh and a bunch of donation requests on paypal.

Soo, pretty much a tiny delusional English nationalist group that seems to exist almost entirely on internet forums and youtube and have about 7 members. They apparently believe something, but it's not particularly clear what that is. The name though should give you some clue. Pendragon is King Arthur's surname, and I wonder what the white part is referring to....

Edit: And apparently they have links to the EDL (english defence league). I think we now know all we need to....

[–]Mein_Bergkamp 823 points824 points  (71 children)

Made more amusing by the fact that if king Arthur existed he spent his entire life fighting....the Saxons...

Edit: Many thanks for the gold kind stranger!

Make whites Anglo Protestant again

[–]Luhood 129 points130 points  (22 children)

They weren't even Angles, they too were a Dano-germanic group. King Arthur was most likely a Brythonic king, of which only the Cornish and arguably Welsh remains today.

[–]Kevin_Wolf 10 points11 points  (0 children)

King Arthur wouldn't have been Protestant. He supposedly existed much prior to the creation of the Church of England.

[–]OCBeHumble 72 points73 points  (32 children)

Ha! That's hilarious! I also just realized I know basically nothing about King Arthur legends and mythos. He got an oversized knife from a lady at the bottom of a lake, the blade was magic so then he was king, and finally his hilt got caught on the corners of his table too many time so he just kept cutting off corners until there were none left. He told his people it was something about we're all equals when we sit at the table so I made the table a circle.

Any good sources? Otherwise it's off to wiki I gooooooooo

[–]xmod2 213 points214 points  (10 children)

[–]theidleidol 539 points540 points  (111 children)

I mean “White Pendragons” is about as obviously a name for a white supremacy group as possible, short of something direct like “Society for the Oppression of Non-White Subhuman Scum”

[–]JesseBricks 340 points341 points  (53 children)

It is a good name. Appropriate. Using the made-up name of a made-up figure to counter the made-up threat of a made-up world.

It neatly encapsulates the fantasy these pricks are living.

[–]MrRandomSuperhero 65 points66 points  (0 children)

You're not doing your cause a favour by calling your gang the white pendragons.

It's the whole are we the bad guys scenario back at hq

[–]tobeanounnced 1409 points1410 points  (75 children)

The pendragons are also a small sect of crazy people that believe in scientology-esque sci-fi religion cult that was started in the 80's. They once tried to stock pile guns and over throw a city government in California. In the stock pile were also plans for rayguns and explosives. After that the cult was primarily expanded in prison systems.

[–]YesIAmAGinger 494 points495 points  (59 children)

There’s an episode of a podcast called The Dollop that explains this whole insane story (episode #9 “The Pendragon”). Highly, highly recommend people listen to it if they’re curious (and the whole Dollop library in general because the guys that make it are incredibly funny).

[–]Khassar_de_Templari 110 points111 points  (48 children)

How is that podcast in general if you don't mind me asking? I've heard it name dropped a couple times and it seems quite interesting.

  • e1: Thanks for all the info, guys, I'm gonna check it out today on my commute home!

e2: So far ~87% positive reviews so far

[–]mykunos 70 points71 points  (16 children)

It's, simply put, fantastic. I can recommend my favorite episode "The Rube," about baseball oddity Rube Waddell and all his curious antics. The podcast is funny, insightful, interesting, sometimes sad, but always completely engaging.

[–]modi13 26 points27 points  (4 children)

My favourite is the one where the bartender tries to get one of his alcoholic customers to die so he can get a life insurance payout, and the drunk Irishman just keeps showing up at the bar.

[–]venevoxus 484 points485 points  (116 children)

Pendragon was the last name of king Arthur.

[–]articulateantagonist 48 points49 points  (6 children)

It was more an epithet than a surname or a family name, specifically a name given to a powerful chief or warlord of ancient Britain or Wales. Also in the earliest legends, it was only attached to Uther or his brother. Its use in reference to Arthur didn't begin until the 1800s in some of Tennyson's poems, in which it's still used as a title.

Edit: Not a title inherited through a bloodline, but an epithet that Uther earned.

[–]pbradley179 178 points179 points  (97 children)

Given his fighting the Saxons and the Norse, I'd bet he was just a smidge intolerant, too.

[–]co99950 268 points269 points  (60 children)

And it's kinda funny because DNA analysis shows that the vast majority or British people are decended from people like the Saxons and Norse rather than the indigenous brythons. Itd be like a native American group naming themselves after Andrew Jackson.

[–]apatite 197 points198 points  (27 children)

Or kinda like if the capital of America had a sports team named after the natives.

[–]Americatcp 4109 points4110 points  (715 children)

Why would they hold a fucking American flag? For pro-Brexit?

Probably because they were shouting pro-trump while holding the flag, also while holding it wrong like an idiot, making his views even more laughable looking

[–]FierceMundy 739 points740 points  (385 children)

for some people the American flag symbolizes right wing/capitalism.

[–]dc3needsaname 404 points405 points  (142 children)

European here... true for many people I know.

Also war, Hollywood, porn and religious crazies. Oh, and really sugary, fatty food. I think that’s what most people think of.

[–]iMissMacandCheese 76 points77 points  (23 children)

I'm all for making fun of American cuisine (as someone who grew up here) but having lived two years in the Netherlands, they're just as insane with their determination to fry carbohydrates.

[–]dc3needsaname 28 points29 points  (15 children)

It’s not necessarily me making fun of it. More like... grudging admiration.

I currently live in Scotland. Ever had a deep fried mars bar? 😂

[–]SketchyCharacters 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Aha here in Toronto we got this food tent that opens up during the summer time and we have a bunch of odd, fatty foods. Things like doughnut burgers and deep fried butter. Fried mars bars and a bunch of other things like that are found there too.

Waving the English(not uk) flag around constantly outside of football games or royal weddings is strongly associated with right wing extremists in the uk (we don't put much stock in flags mostly).

An extension of this from them most likely

[–]propanololololol 593 points594 points  (205 children)

Why were they calling for his arrest? I understand that they vehemently disagree with him but what do they see as an actual crime?

[–]OSUBrit 447 points448 points  (36 children)

From the article:

'subverting' the constitution.

You know, the one that we famously don't have in the UK.

[–]I_Resent_That 127 points128 points  (14 children)

Well, we have a constitution, only an 'unwritten' one based on law and precedent. How in the fuck Sadiq Khan is violating it in their minds, I do not know. Perhaps subverting the rule of the monarch? There's probably some zombie legislation or precedent in their there they'd trot out for their purposes, just like they'd be justified in shooting a Welshman with a crossbow from the walls of York or some other bullshit.

Cretins.

[–]prophile 96 points97 points  (7 children)

The UK has a constitution, just not a codified one. Our constitution is the set of acts of parliament, legal precedents, and court judgments which cover the structure of government and power.

There's a report from KCL to the Commons from a few years ago which covers the status quo and some of the relative merits of codified and uncodified constitutions which makes for an interesting read.

[–]tyrone_wishbone 963 points964 points  (88 children)

His crime is being Muslim... or not being white. For some reason.

[–]propanololololol 194 points195 points  (68 children)

I get that that's the thinly veiled reason, but I want to know on what legal grounds they thought they could make a citizens' arrest.

[–]riddler1225 569 points570 points  (57 children)

You're missing it... the logic rarely extends farther than that. The crime is being Muslim. If it's not illegal it should be. If we don't get them now they're going to install Sharia law. (Occasionally they feel that being Muslim is treasonous if you're looking for an existing law)

Here's another example of a recent similar incident in Canada. The politician handles it exceptionally well.

https://youtu.be/y67DnNRPszA

Her grounds... she knows he's with the Muslim Brotherhood and he's for Sharia.

Never mind that he's Sikh.

Under Shania law, does every senate meeting begin with the speaker shouting "Let's go girls!"?

Shh, you shouldn't confront these people with reality, they don't like that.

Guy's a straight up boss though. I wanted to punch the shit of out her and he's just standing there, dealing with it like a mature, sane person. Huge props to the dude, mad respect.

[–]JonnyArtois 77 points78 points  (23 children)

The awkward moment people don't see the difference in Sikh's and Muslims.

[–]greatorder 66 points67 points  (6 children)

It's basically a case of "Are they brown? Y/N? If Y, do they have a turban, Y/N? If Y, they're Muslim"

I mean, never mind that Muslims don't actually wear turbans all that often from what I understand.

[–]jenryalee 24 points25 points  (4 children)

Muslims don't wear turbans at all. Men sometimes cover their head with a small, rounded cap (I forget the name) but not turbans. People are just so straight up ignorant, it's mind-boggling.

[–]PerfectHair 25 points26 points  (8 children)

See now this is the exact reason why people say anti-muslim protests are racist; because the sort of person who does shit like this doesn't actually care if they're muslim, they care if they're brown.

[–]I_Resent_That 8 points9 points  (7 children)

I imagine there's got to be a small proportion who are honestly critical of the religion (which is pretty myopic because no major religion is an entirely monolithic entity).

I can extend benefit of the doubt to people who are critical of religion, aspects of it, certain practices, etc.

Comes a point, though, where you have to take a good look at the company you keep. If you're not racist, but all your allies are racist, is the thing you're fighting for really that likely to be just?

[–]PerfectHair 7 points8 points  (1 child)

That's exactly it. I have the same beef with all dogmatic religions. As long as it stays out of the lives of people who don't share it, I don't care what it says. Even if it doesn't stay out, I don't blame the religion. There's plenty of peaceful believers. Hell they outnumber the non-peaceful ones.

[–]longtimelurkerfirs 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Turban=Muslim for these people.

[–]jaredjeya 22 points23 points  (2 children)

Does it really matter though? If someone has a go at someone because of their religion/ethnicity/whatever, perceived or otherwise, they’re racist. Getting the details wrong just makes them an idiot on top of that.

I remember seeing a picture online shortly after the spate of ISIS attacks in France saying “these guys are Sikhs, not muslims, stop abusing them” - but that made it seem like the only reason it’d be wrong to abuse a Sikh person is because it’s mistaken identity.

I think it just serves to illustrate that what these people really care about is skin colour. They try to wrap it up in stuff about “Islam being a barbaric religion” but it’s just an excuse.

[–]I_Resent_That 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Someone having a go at someone for their religion isn't racist, but it can be bigoted. Sorry for being a pedant.

Conflating someone's skin colour with their religion and prejudging them for it, undeniably racist.

[–]DrFrankTilde 40 points41 points  (2 children)

Your average American confuses Indians with Iranis but hey, as long as brown people are put in their place everything's good right?

[–]drunkenvalley 55 points56 points  (1 child)

Article mentions statements "referencing his religion" as the reason for their actions. So... that's it. That seems to be the entire reason.

[–]Avenger616 151 points152 points  (27 children)

Him being in office, he's muslim (I heard he was more agnostic, but whatever), he's a socialist, he's labour.

Mostly the muslm thing as far as I can tell, something about being an islamic state plant trying to establish a city-wide sharia zone (he's not)

Take your pick, people and groups like this rarely, if ever have concrete evidence to support their inane babble.

They are children, spoilt little sprogs bitching that someone they personally despise because 'reasons' is actually doing a half-decent job and it's not boris johnson or a tory.

[–]StrangeSemiticLatin2 112 points113 points  (17 children)

He's a British Muslim, meaning he can be pretty damned British. Dude was the first to recognise one of London's most vibrant heart sectors was dying and going (the pubs and bars) and put policies to save it, I mean he would know more then any Tory about that, his father was a bus driver and his mother a seamstress. Dude was working class and became mayor of London, and it is people like him that make me respect that city.

He is a true success story of an immigrant's dream done through hard work and desire to rise, the thing the US flaunts about.

[–]OohLaLaaaaaa 4137 points4138 points  (664 children)

I love that they wanted to arrest Khan. Love it.

So normally, when you arrest someone, they have actually committed a crime, not just hurt someone’s feelings.

Absolutely love these guys, they’re such good value. As long as they keep turning up, we’ll be aware that stupidity knows no bounds, and if anything it puts these folks right back in their box. White Pendragons indeed - THAT’S NOT EVEN A REAL THING!!

Edit: I’m reading replies like “wanting to arrest khan for no reason is like trying to impeach trump for no reason”, as if these wingnuts are completely oblivious to everything that’s happened over the last year, and also that making a citizens arrest of a city mayor is some how the same as impeaching the president of the USA. Thing is, I’m not even mad - it’s hilarious. Please keep saying this shit, I beg you.

[–]jk1121 1941 points1942 points  (204 children)

White Pendragons indeed - THAT’S NOT EVEN A REAL THING!!

In the US, the mish-mash of words like dragon and wizard are typically used by the Ku Klux Klan. And though I don't think the KKK had ever used the word "pendragon" before the evocation of Authurian legend to support "white identity" politics is very reminiscent of good old fashioned KKK style.

There's an idea that if you make your terrorist organization sound ridiculous no one will take you as a serious threat.

That may help explain how after numerous social rebukes and countless internal scandals that would have brought down any other group why the KKK had survived for over a hundred years. In part, at least, there's certainly a lot of other reasons, but the fact that no one can take an organization whose leader is called the Imperial Grand Wizard seriously helped.

Good luck on the adventure, hope you roll plenty of critical hits against the enemy.

And not when determining how badly you’re damaged from falling off walls, for example.

[–]IThinkNotThen 41 points42 points  (12 children)

What if you are intentionally falling off a wall to elbow drop an orc?

That's what one of my players did last time I ran a similar game?

[–]Lost-My-Mind- 48 points49 points  (5 children)

TIL Macho Man Randy Savage faked his own death so he could spend time playing D&D.

[–]SouryD 6 points7 points  (5 children)

Well, 'how badly you're damaged' would still apply, how badly they (as in the orc) get damaged is a whole other topic.

Don't you just love it when players lose all sense of self-preservation and literally just fling themselves into a melee? I wonder how many times people have physically thrown their Small-sized party members into combat just because the Small-sized one thought it'd be a brilliant idea.

[–]IThinkNotThen 8 points9 points  (3 children)

How I ended up ruling it was that if he made his attack roll, it'd count as a normal melee attack, but both he and the orc would take the falling damage.

That same party member later attached a chain to the belt of a halfling barbarian party member. And that ended up being a total game changer.

[–]SoldierHawk 30 points31 points  (4 children)

No joke? Dude, that's fucking awesome. How did you guys get in that situation? Do you have to fight your way out, or just hold on til help arrives?

The game I'm in now is too early to be in that kind of a situation, but we HAVE discovered a portal created by the god of travel, that links 11 other worlds to ours.

We're currently trying to befriend members of each plane, and are building a tavern for everyone just outside of our part of the portal. We have to make friends before the dark elves stop pretending to be nice and decide to march their army in from the Underdark portal.

Hey off topic, but can you guys help me figure out what I should play for Tomb of Horrors?

[–]SouryD 51 points52 points  (1 child)

Something you don’t get too emotionally attached to.

[–]CapnGrundlestamp 6 points7 points  (0 children)

The best answer.

Seriously, just name the dude Redshirt the Expendable and call it a day.

[–]Necronomicow 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Paladin for good saves and team utility, rogue for saves and utility against traps, or a non-blaster wizard for even more stupid levels of utility. Pretty much just utility, utility, utility. If your party needs to deal lots of damage you’re probably already dead.

Something with as many minions and summons as you can manage, bring anything that lets you avoid direct contact with the environment as well, I'm talking ten foot poles, eleven foot poles, telekinesis and grappling hooks.

There's a lot of doors and buttons and they're all fucking bastards.

Some sort of germophobe cult leader should be fine*

[–]trainercatlady 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Ours just got done fighting redcaps and we're about to kick the shit out of some trolls.

Fuck, I think my D&D game actually is real life.

[–]OhHiGCHQ 273 points274 points  (25 children)

So normally, when you arrest someone, they have actually committed a crime, not just hurt someone’s feelings.

They support a man who wants to take away the broadcast licences of people who are critical of him and "reform the libel laws" to shut down dissent. They're just copying their dear leader strong and stable president.

[–]crewserbattle 48 points49 points  (3 children)

The funny part is if Trump did somehow manage to change libel laws he would be fucking himself over even harder because of all the shit he spews over Twitter.

[–]OhHiGCHQ 52 points53 points  (1 child)

Oh course, but he doesn't believe the law applies to him. He's constantly shown us this.

[–]Nomandate 75 points76 points  (2 children)

It's amazing the projection of the word "snowflakes" from these butt-hurt morons.

[–]CupcakeofDeath 245 points246 points  (118 children)

But no, liberals are the snowflakes because we don't like hate crimes and want equality.

[–]omidelf 189 points190 points  (6 children)

Waaaaah he hurts my feelings, arrest him :(

The right wing is the definition of crybaby snowflakes, just take a look at their emperor, whining 24/7 on twitter.

[–]OPTCThunderbolts 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Conservatives 10 years ago: Political correctness is a good thing! Censor media!

Conservatives now: Political correctness is horrible! Get rid of it! Censor media!

Hilarious how the party (at least for the US, don't know about elsewhere) so proud and emblematic of PC... now opposes it but still wishes to censor the media.

[–]CNNofWorms 129 points130 points  (20 children)

That's why it's so funny when they bitch about leftists being too sensitive. The right are the real snowflakes that can't deal with having their precious fee fees hurt.
A gaggle of crybaby pussies. Not much more.

Wow.

Richards had told Hoover and another youth of his scheme, which he called Pendragon, to take control of Marin County, blow up the Golden Gate and Richmond-San Rafael bridges and install laser guns on Angel Island and Mount Tamalpais to guard his kingdom. He ran into financial troubles in 1982 and enlisted the youths to kill Baldwin to get money, promising Hoover $5,000, according to court records.

[–]ragn4rok234 43 points44 points  (6 children)

In America you can have someone arrested for hurting your feelings, just look at that school board president that's been all over Reddit. The greatest country in the world

[–]Americatcp 439 points440 points  (78 children)

It’s a good job the U.K. has free healthcare for those burns

[–]i_have_severe 199 points200 points  (23 children)

If the Tories have their way, not for much longer.

[–]scritchbubble 792 points793 points  (43 children)

British white supremacists are now using the American flag as a symbol. Think about that for a while.

[–]Coast_watcher 144 points145 points  (2 children)

Who’s the mother country now, fools lol !

[–]yourdadsotherkid 133 points134 points  (7 children)

For real. This should be an insult to Americans. Instead I know republicans are probably nodding their heads in agreement.

[–]SirRosstopher 23 points24 points  (3 children)

Thank god, I mean I prefer the union jack anyway but perhaps I won't always associate the St George's cross with hooligans/racists if they start using the US Flag instead.

[–]Spin737 18 points19 points  (0 children)

I feel dirty.

[–]Vinc3ntPh4m 110 points111 points  (12 children)

Why'd they pick such a cultish name

[–]Rahbek23 255 points256 points  (5 children)

"Fuck brown people" were a bit too much on the nose and King Arthur is as a national legend, so voilà!

[–]YosserHughes 12 points13 points  (2 children)

For our American friends a P45 is the form you get handed when you get fired or leave a job.

said the one causing problems

[–]networkengineers 32 points33 points  (1 child)

I liked the bit about not being able to arrest them because they bought tickets.

[–]rudekoffenris 29 points30 points  (12 children)

I'll never understand why "the common man" thinks that Trump is in his corner.

[–]shereenfaltas 50 points51 points  (2 children)

“Ladies and gentlemen, we're here today to make a non-violent, peaceful citizen's arrest.”

If you want trump you can have him

What was the chant? America First? That makes sense for foreign nationalists.

[–]wishywashywonka[🍰] 298 points299 points  (31 children)

from a group called the White Pendragons

Bwahaha.

Mother fuckers were ranting something about the Fabians too, which I now have to go look up.

[–]bort-thrillho 90 points91 points  (20 children)

Fabian strategy was what the Romans called a war of attrition. In the late 1800's/early 1900's there was a group called the Fabian Society that were socialists who were against the idea of revolution and instead advocated for incremental reforms. Literally the least threatening, arguably least effective of the socialist groups. They even call themselves "Center-Left" to distance themselves from working class socialism and more towards liberalism

[–]JB_UK 104 points105 points  (15 children)

arguably least effective of the socialist groups

Er, except they were an incredibly well-connected group, and what they advocated actually happened. There was an incremental massive shift in labour and individual economic rights from 1918 to 1960, including the old age pension, free universal healthcare, access to free education up to 16, then 18, then university, unemployment support, huge programmes of house building, housing improvement, public health improvements, which completely revolutionalized the life of ordinary people living in Britain. Their members included McDonald (the first Labour PM) and Attlee (who founded the NHS). They also founded the London School of Economics.

[–]jaredjeya 39 points40 points  (12 children)

Exactly. Social Democracy has been the only form of socialism to actually succeed - because it doesn’t involve overthrowing existing power structures, something which is not only difficult to do (and impossible to do legally, hence a lack of popular support unless things get really bad like in Tsarist Russia), but also results in a power vacuum which leads to dictatorships.

Meanwhile social democracy gets you a welfare state, nationalised healthcare and education, and all the other good stuff a decent first world country has.

Not to mention that it doesn’t have to be a dichotomy between free markets on one side and socialism on the other (a mistake a lot of hardcore left wingers make). A free market doesn’t stop you handing out benefits, and is arguably much freer when properly regulated to stop exploitation of consumers and workers.

[–]False_Creek 32 points33 points  (1 child)

TIL several Washington interns got a free trip to London. I hope they got to see the Eye!

Idiots shouting idiot things because idiots

[–]pat_the_tree 220 points221 points  (23 children)

And there was only about 5 or 6 of them. Looked quite pathetic really.

[–]Solen__ya 141 points142 points  (15 children)

Fucking shit ass article! I was looking for pics and a reference to how many dumbasses were involved and it never mentions how many people actually showed up. I imagined thousands or at least hundreds of protester but no. Its not even a fucking dozen? Wouldn't doubt Trump being fed this article to make him feel special.

Went back and saw the video after having issues on mobile... should have started there I guess...

[–]10ebbor10 57 points58 points  (3 children)

There's a reason the automod stickies a post on top of every Independent Article.

They're known to sensationalize.

[–]GrumpyOlBastard 24 points25 points  (5 children)

"a number"

hate that term... zero is a fucking number

[–]Ink_news 100 points101 points  (69 children)

“subverting” the constitution.

Does the UK even have a constitution?

[–]farhawk 238 points239 points  (27 children)

Yeah but its older in style to the US' since it isn't neatly written down on a few documents. The "Unwritten constitution" of the UK consists of hundreds of documents, charters, treaties and acts created by both the old monarchy and later by parliament through the ages that together create the administrative nightmare that lawmakers need to wade though. Its organised chaos really.
