The BNP has released its Christmas card and, true to form, it’s pretty racist

Here it is – the annual festive monstrosity known as the BNP Christmas card.

It’s released around this time every year bearing its cheery message of Christmas hate and intolerance.

The outside of this year’s reprehensible offering features an image of a young girl (who, as you read this, is probably being mercilessly bullied at school) emblazoned with the words “protecting our Christmas”.

From what exactly, you might ask. The inside of the card explains.

“We’ve all heard of ‘Winterval,’” the card reads (needless to say at we haven’t), “it’s the Politically Correct replacement of our traditional Christmas – an engineered replacement complete with polar bears, penguins, and snowflakes to eradicate our traditional nativity scenes, with baby Jesus, Joseph, Mary, and the Three Wise Kings all to be airbrushed out.”

Underneath the picture of the child is the clever pun “wishing you a white Christmas” – geddit, because they’re massively racist? Clever.

It’s almost unbelievable, except last year’s card featured the same words.

Don’t try and make sense of it. Trying to fathom why the BNP thought this was acceptable in Britain will most likely give you a nosebleed.

  • I loath the BNP as much you however you must be pretty naïve if you've not seen the expressions Winterval, Happy Holidays and Season's Greetings substituted for Christmas in order not to cause offense. As a journalist I'd have thought you'd go round with your eyes open not half shut.

  • Before I wrote this I googled the term "winterval". It's featured solely in one festival in Birmingham in 1997 and 1998 when I was 8-9 years old, and hasn't been mentioned since (apart from in mythbusting articles) so do forgive me for not knowing about a very specific event that happened in another region of the UK nearly 20 years ago. The same applies with my colleagues who hadn't heard the term either. I encourage you to google it yourself and you'll see what I mean.

    Also Richard, I didn't mention happy holidays or season's greetings, did I? And nor did the BNP, so I have no idea where you got that from.

    But while we're on the subject, happy holidays is an Americanism that most people would say is virtually never used by British people. Are you sure you're not confusing British culture with American films and television?

    People have been saying season's greetings (and other phrases such as compliments of the season) since Victorian times.

    Perhaps you should do some research yourself next time you insult someone.

  • Your article talks about the politically correct form of Christmas which is what my comments were based on. Sorry if you found them insulting, I thought I was pretty gentle! Happy Christmas
