Nigel Farage has compared the surge in iconoclasm which has seen monuments destroyed, church stained glass removed, and popular culture touchstones deleted to the reign of religious extremists in 17th century England.
Labelling the present witch-hunt — appropriately named, perhaps — as being bed by a band of “new Puritans”, Brexit pioneer Nigel Farage told Breitbart News Daily on Monday the orgy of iconoclasm presently gripping the country was last seen in 17th century England.
Noting some similarities between the dour religious extremists who briefly gained control of England by deposing and then executing King Charles I in 1649 and the Marxist left-activists presently pushing a slow-motion revolution on the United Kingdom, Mr Farage said: “The one thing that the woke left never ever have is any sense of humour whatsoever. They are never able to laugh at anything, including themselves.
“The last time we saw this in my country was in the 17th century. The Puritans took over, cut off the head of the king, dancing was banned, jokes was banned, jesters was banned, drinking was banned, and even putting up Christmas decorations was banned! And that’s what Puritans do.”
