An English Defence League (EDL) supporter got into a bizarre and very public Facebook spat with his 12-year-old niece after she called out his views on Islam, politicians and a local garage.
Wayne Knight, from Bishop Auckland, County Durham, took to Facebook to vent his frustrations with the few Muslim people in the town, which is 99.2 per cent white.
In the post, he wrote: "F*** CAMER.ORON.. F*** ISLAM... F*** COCKTON HILL GARAGE... F*** HELEN GOODMAN... F*** ALL THE NON BELEIVERS... B.A.A.I"
Helen Goodman is Bishop Auckland's Labour MP, and the Cockton Hill Garage is a nearby service station, disliked by Knight because it apparently has Muslims working there - whom he refers to with a particularly vile racial slur.
In response to his poorly spelled, bizarre, caps-locked rant, his 12-year-old niece chimes in, perhaps naively telling him to stop clinging to his racist beliefs.
After Knight tells her to "keep ya nose out about this s*** please", the niece tells her uncle that she's "sick of seeing on my wall loads of crap about Islam", helpfully reminding him that he's her 12-year-old niece.
Knight simply replies: "Im deleting you. Bye."

The EDL describes itself as a 'non-political social movement' and is staging it's latest town centre protest in Bolton against 'extremist organisations that promote terrorism or those that seek to oppress others whether through religion or politics', 2010
The post has been shared widely online by critics of the EDL, particularly on Twitter.
Since the resignation of founder and former leader Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, more commonly known by his pseudonym, Tommy Robinson, the movement has been left rudderless, and their demonstrations typically attract tens of supporters, a sharp contrast to the hundreds or sometimes thousands of people who attended larger marches a few years ago.
Robinson and his deputy leader Kevin Caroll publicly resigned from the group in October 2013, with Robinson saying he had considered leaving for a long time due to his concerns over the "dangers of far-right extremism."Reuse content
