(not satire – it’s the UKIP!)

Nigel Farage is in the US and he tweeted yesterday about how much he likes one of the politicians he’s been forging political ties with over there:

rand and nigel

Rand Paul is extremely controversial. He’s author of ‘The Tea Party Goes to Washington‘ and one of the leading lights of the extreme right-wing Tea Party movement in the US.

Farage’s most recent cosying up to the militant Tea Party comes just a year after Nigel had some very friendly meetings with Rand Paul’s father – US presidential candidate Ron Paul – who is known as the ‘Godfather of the Tea Party Movement’:

Nigel Farage and the man who trashed the pound. Twice.

As an example of how extreme Nigel’s new friends are, over half of Tea Party supporters don’t believe in evolution or global warming.

Here are just a few other examples:

Arkansas racism, tea-party style

Legitimate Rape: Proof the Tea Party is Full of Crazy Social Views

Indiana tea party candidate’s comments on rape

Tea Party: Take slavery out of school textbooks

Tea Party: Impregnated Rape Victims Who Abort Should Be Jailed As Long As Their Rapist


I wonder which of these alarming opinions Nigel ‘gets on really well with‘ the most?


Please feel free to comment. And share. Thanks:
