Drinking From Home: Yet more "It's our fault"

I cannot disagree with a word of this. The white working class in England DOES feel despised. The chancers who pass for political leaders in our country focus all their attention on a few hundred voters in swing marginals who decide the outcome of every election. If those voters were Muslims calling for Sharia Law in England, Sharia Law is what we would get - and to hell with our own wishes, traditions or human rights.

Every time I see someone state the truth like this, it hurts. The BNP is gaining strength in our country because of such uncomfortable truths. Yet the BNP is far from being the answer. It is a vile group of neo-Nazis and will not save us from the evils of the current regime, but lead us to perdition by a different route. While doing so, it will reinforce the view of the liberal left in Britain that the white working classes are ignorant racists whose views deserve to be held in contempt. I am confident that, with the usual exception for the nutters in every nation, that is not true.

For generation after generation, England has welcomed and absorbed immigrants. I grew up among the working classes of the North and never heard a racist sentiment expressed. I believe that racism has been manufactured in England by a "race relations" industry which needs racism to justify its existence and which, by constantly berating the white population for its supposed racism has generated resentment.

If the BNP wins votes, I believe those votes will not represent a desire for racist policies. They will be a protest, designed to shock the political classes out of their complacency. The gap which has opened between the world as presented by politicians and the everyday truths of existence in Britain is simply too wide. If the conventional politicians won't bridge it, the people will.

I am very concerned. Things could get messy. I don't want decent British people to disgrace themselves and our nation by voting for neo-Nazis. But, to be honest, I don't know what else to suggest to them.

Thanks for the link Tom.

I believe that racism has been manufactured in England by a "race relations" industry which needs racism to justify its existence and which, by constantly berating the white population for its supposed racism has generated resentment.

This point was made by wonderful Asian woman called Sabeena during a phone-in on the BNP on Radio Five Live on Monday morning. Sabeena, who has lived in Britain for 24 years (“I would rather live here than anywhere else in the world”) took the BBC presenter Stephen Nolan to task:

Sabeena: I recently wrote on a website “Is multiculturalism leading to racism?” and the people who responded were so many and they were all Asian, or as you call them from ethnic minorities, and they all agreed. Now there are two points here - one is we have to stop ‘A’ calling ourselves an ethnic minority and ‘B’ as seeing ourselves as victims. And the other thing is the government and the hierarchy and the race relations, they have to stop ramming political correctness down people’s throats.

Stephen Nolan: There’s a difference isn’t there Sabeena, from ramming political correctness down someone’s throat and actually saying “Hold on, this is wrong”? A child cannot stand in a playground a call another child the ‘N’ word. That’s not political correctness, that’s just right from wrong.

Sabeena: Yeah but the other child was calling him white trash, wasn’t he?

Stephen Nolan: (No response)

Sabeena: You must know that children do get up to all sorts of insults in the playground. Do you prosecute somebody who calls somebody a fat so-and-so? I mean I think this is absolute rubbish that they’re spending taxpayers’ money on something as trivial and stupid like that. There was publicity some time ago about a an Asian driver or … there was somebody… the judge said his attack on the white person was not racist. Now I would like to know how he reached that conclusion. I’m not privy to the arguments he had but that put a lot of people’s back up.

Stephen Nolan: What are you saying to me? Are you saying there’s not a problem with racism in this country?

Sabeena: I’m not saying that. I’m saying the problem has become aggravated about racism because of the political correctness and all the laws and bylaws and race relations board and all those little institutions that tell people they should or shouldn’t do this or that.

Stephen Nolan: Well the alternative is chaos

Doesn’t that just sum it all up? A white employee of one of the most politically correct institutions in the country can’t comprehend a Britain without the overbearing interference of the race relations industry and the guiding principles of political correctness. It’s the institutionalised liberal elite that needs to change its way, not the plebs. If not, the BNP will continue to prosper.

(The above phone-in is available online (streaming RAM) until next Monday. Sabeena comes on about 45mins 40seconds in.)

Your comment about people voting for the BNP for a protest vote is spot on the mark. I, like you, believe they are a worthless bunch but I would still tender a vote. If only to upset the applecart. I doubt they would ever get in and their influence would cause politicians to consider what they have been doing so far. If by some unfortunate circumstance they did get in then I ask you, Could they be any worse?
