REECE COOMBES: UKIP’s Social Media Revolution Will Finally Spark Britain’s Battle For Freedom
For years, it appeared that UKIP’s major successes during the earlier years of the decade were short-lived. A mixture of utterly incompetent leadership, a severe unwillingness to approach any controversial issues and a coordinated effort by the government and the media to shut us down have ensured that, for the last two years, our party has only gone from failure to failure.
Try as we did, no amount of activism and ‘damage control’ could change the fact that our party’s message, structure and direction was nothing more than a pathetic shambles.
However, to the credit of the grassroots UKIP membership, that all changed on February 17th when we unseated our wet excuse of a leader, Henry Bolton, in favour of Gerard Batten, the man who finally taught the upper echelons of UKIP to discuss Islam, free speech and Tommy Robinson.
For the entire time Gerard has been involved in politics (over 25 years), he has remained totally true to his principles. Consistently battling for a total departure from the EU and each of its corrupt institutions as well as regularly calling out the evils of Islamism, Gerard has proven himself to be a hero of not only UKIP but of Britain and its patriotic people.
My twitter account was suspended recently because I said ‘Islam was a death cult’. Well I am back now, and Islam is still a death cult.

Leading UKIP, Gerard has – alongside Chairman Tony McIntyre and others – rooted out the corruption enshrined within the party’s structures by previous leaders and has finally begun to take UKIP forward rather than backwards. Rising in the polls, and even unseating Labour council leaders, UKIP’s latest chapter in electoral history is one of great success and victory.
But the latest good news for UKIP under Gerard is perhaps the most significant development for the party since Henry Bolton tendered his resignation. Prominent online freedom activists Milo Yiannopoulos, Count Dankula, Sargon of Akkad and Paul Joseph Watson have all joined UKIP, and have been welcomed with open arms by the party’s leadership, supporters and crucially, by the membership.
These activists have millions of online followers between them and have a firm history of campaigning for freedom of speech, relentlessly attending events which leftists have attempted to shut down.
Of course, they aren’t without their own controversies – from extremely offensive language to expressing what can only described as totally abhorrent opinions, they have undoubtedly made mistakes in their pasts and clearly we must not overlook this.
But, as UKIP’s Chairman Tony McIntyre described to me over the phone, UKIP is a party which believes in reform. Every single one of us has made mistakes throughout our lives; I’m not a religious man but the Biblical guidance “let he who is without sin cast the first stone” could not be more appropriate here. I am happy to say that one of my closest political allies has flirted with Communism in their past but that they have moved on from its evils. Likewise, I would be happy to work with somebody who was active in the EDL during its more violent times provided they have moved on from their former thuggishness, as I actively do.
Besides, what is often described as racism on social media is actually nothing of the sort. Many YouTubers will go out of their way to say particularly offensive things within certain contexts in order to be more shocking, and therefore funnier to their audiences. Clearly, this type of humour does not suit all. But what type of humour does?
But I digress. Despite their sometimes controversial styles, these new faces in UKIP represent a vibrant, youthful spirit, the likes of which UKIP has never seen before. The new members they bring with them are keen, patriotic and particularly young when compared with the rest of UKIP’s membership. Fighting for freedom using the vast reach of social media, they will bring UKIP to previously uncharted territories and deliver our message to millions of social media users who, in turn, will look to UKIP as an alternative to the consecutive failed British governments.
UKIP has finally entered an age of online activism, street politics and populism – the true formula to rally people behind radical change and finally make electoral breakthroughs.
With Gerard at the helm, hundreds of online campaigners behind him and, crucially, tens of thousands of patriots standing alongside us, UKIP is finally set to start kicking the traitors out!
