How does British BNP nationalism differ from Irish Sinn fein ect Nationalism The BNP *thankfully* evoke disgust and revulsion in the minds of most if not nearly all productive right thinking members of British society . Most of the voting public are savvy enough to realise they promote exclusionary, unhealthy , xenophobic, singular ideas of nationality / ethnicity and reject their politics as sinister and unacceptable. My question is how do a political party like sinn fein differ from BNP.? Nick Griffin is awful and in my opinion deserves to be shunned and ignored. but at worst he can be described as an Alf garnet / Archie Bunker type figure who cynically plays on the immigration fears of alienated disenfranchised communities and outside of those communities is largely a figure of mockery. BNP contrasted with populist sinn fein in Northern Ireland who appear to have equally sinister xenophobic leanings - and that's before the possibility is mentioned their party leaders Gerry Adams / Martin McGuinness may or may not have the blood of dead children on their hands Nick Griffin seems almost day-time-tv presenter camp and innocuous by comparison My question is , how do the two differ.? What subtly / nuance aren't I seeing that makes a party like sinn fein more acceptable than the BNP?
