Pie and Mash Squad
|Inventing "The Other"|
|Fear And Loathing|
The Pie and Mash Squad (formerly Casuals United) is a British anti-Islam protest group set up by Jeff Marsh in 2009. Officially, it is non-racist and peaceful; in practice, it is ultimately just the English Defence League all over again.
The group is closely tied to football fandom, identifying itself as "uniting the UK’s football tribes against the Jihadists". Its name derived from the "casual" subculture which is associated with football hooliganism.
The Casuals United blog praises Enoch Powell: "Who still thinks Enoch Powell was wrong? Only left wing anti white morons", it says. Beyond this, the outfit's dubious racial views extend to its support for a white pride event run by a family of Welsh neo-Nazis.
- Wait … the EDL has one of those?
