Creepy conversion

Posted by rantingkraut on April 26, 2006

The Pub Philosopher recently pointed out a story of an Indian immigrant planning to vote BNP. That sure doesn’t sound like a good idea. To show that the crazy conversions do not all work one way consider the bizzare tale of “Abdul Aziz ibn Myatt”:

David Myatt, a founder of the hardline British National Socialist Movement (NSM) who has been jailed for racist attacks, has changed his name to Abdul Aziz ibn Myatt. … Myatt is reportedly the author of a fascist terrorist handbook and a former leader of the violent far-right group Combat 18. But now — in his mid-50s and sporting a red, bushy beard — he subscribes to radical Islamist views.

This leaves the question of how those who make a living from political satire manage to compete. With that kind of real world, what is there to exaggerate???
