THREAD: Given that the main UK-based alt-right social media accounts claim to be motivated only by patriotism, I was curious to see what they had to say about the alleged Russian use of nerve agents on UK soil...

#KatieHopkins, #PrisonPlanet, #NigelFarage

Strangely, they completely ignored it....
All their recent tweets were instead clearly designed to make white English people feel angry towards & fearful of brown people living in their midst.
If we posit that the Russian govt seeks, as a strategic goal, to weaken the capacity of NATO/EU to challenge its authoritarian behaviour at home & its revanchist assertiveness on the world stage, then fuelling social polarisation in the west serves Russian state interests.
Here is what Katie Hopkins has been tweeting about since the UK govt has publicly stated its official view that Russian state involvement in the nerve agent attacks in Salisbury is “highly likely”: #KatieHopkins
And here is what “Prison Planet” has been tweeting about since these highly disturbing allegations of a Russian-sponsored attack using illegal chemical weapons on UK soil: #PrisonPlanet
And here is what Nigel Farage & Leave(dot)EU have had to say publicly via their Twitter accounts since the UK govt claimed it was highly likely that the Russian state had carried out another assassination attempt on UK soil.
Remember: these accounts all claim they are driven by patriotism i.e. the vigorous defence of British interests. Their silence on the Prine Minister’s disturbing allegations about a brazen act of violence carried out here by a foreign power is therefore puzzling.//
