    It looked vaguely interesting as I walked my son past. But hate speech on the streets is not a good thing at all

    They maybe laughable but I nearly got into a fight with one of these aggressive clowns when he got close up and personal and did that weird bloke heads rutting nonsense. That said, it was a pleasure seeing them getting booted out of Windrush Square.

    Is there any overlap or continuity between these eejits and the older British Israelism tradition?

    (British Israelism are probably the Ur-Loons, the OG nutters: British Israelism - Wikipedia )

    Highly unlikely. British Israel was one of many esoteric/exotic religious fashions in the nineteenth century Britain and America. The Mormons - still a powerful church or cult - is based on that lost tribes idea. But they are white - in fact the Mormons operated a colour bar until about 50 years ago.

    With the 12 Tribes it's all about being black and having a back story to account for slavery. I've no idea what the ultimate theology/ideology is, but here are their leaflets, since you ask. These are a couple of years old. Their internet links are US based, but they seem to have Birmingham and London followers - who post on Youtube (naturally). The Brixton group used to be vigorously against mixed relationships. Don't know if this still holds.

    This is very interesting - and very sad.
