Fascist Students Plan to Organise on University of Liverpool Campus
We recently came across the website of a group called the “National Culturists”. It is generally a well presented and professional looking site, full of reasonable, liberal sounding language about nationalism and the like.
My initial thoughts on the group were they are plotting a similar path to the English Democrats, or the British Freedom Party. They are not on the surface, overtly far-right, but when you scratch beneath the surface all becomes clear.
A quick look at the ‘meet the team’ page reveals the identity of the ‘Chairman’. His name is Jack Buckby. He originates from Skelmersdale and is a politics student at the University of Liverpool. The title of ‘Chairman’ being associated with a group made up of a handful of people seems a tad grandiose. However, grandiosity is the least of Mr Buckby’s problems.
The speed that the National Culturists have grown in terms of internet presence, blog views, and twitter followers etc., is matched only by the speed that Buckby has been deleting the many faux-pas he had made via the internet, that show the real Jack Buckby, and that would possibly impede the growth of his group.
Things like, Well-presented websites, liberal language, articulate speeches, comedy ties, cravats, and retro facial hair, does not hide what he really is. Jack Buckby is a nasty, racist, homophobe, who is using the ‘National Culturist’ brand to push his own fascist ambitions.
If you take the time to look through the website, watch the YouTube clips, read his comments, read his blog, follow them on twitter, and generally look around the internet, you will not fail to see exactly what he is all about.
The National Culturists are planning a big recruitment drive at the University of Liverpool Fresher’s week in September. They have already started posting on the Facebook event page, again, trying to appear moderate, hiding their real views. Also, Buckby intends on setting up a society, and inviting guest speakers.
We believe that it is important that the students at the University of Liverpool know exactly who Jack Buckby is, and what he and his acolytes are really about. We will also be around at Fresher’s week to let people know the truth.
Whilst in the short term we may be giving these clowns more publicity than they deserve, it is important that people are aware of what they are about and represent, before they gain any kind of foothold.
We hope students at the University of Liverpool make it clear to Buckby et al that they are not welcome!
