Britain has never had segregation...Posted on: June 5th 2020
By: UK Liberty Party, Kevin Bruns
Britain has never had segregation. A low level racism exists but there is nothing in law to intentionally discriminate. There isn’t a deep rooted historical schism as there is in America and we never had a civil rights uprising. Just a gradual though bumpy road to where we are now where minorities have it better than pretty much anywhere on the planet.
This infuriates the far left. They’re not part of America’s righteous crusade and they don’t get to have their place in the history books. They have no such struggle of their own to put them in power.
So in the absence of any such flashpoint they will do their level best to create one by convincing white liberal kids that their very existence is somehow a passive act of oppression.
This is where all the “white privilege” nonsense comes from. That is not to say there isn’t privilege but that extends to pretty much everyone who had the extraordinary good fortune to have been born on this island irrespective of skin colour.
The problem the left have is that they’ll never get people to actually vote for their extreme ideology. Blair knew this this. So instead of taking to the ballot box the left plays the long game, exploiting the gullibility of impressionable youth to weave the narrative that you’re either a victim or an oppressor, rather than just a person trying to make their way in the world and rub along with others as best you can.
In doing so, as university educated liberals make their way in the world with a head full of Marxist claptrap, they use their instruments of power, be it the media or the institutions of civil society, to attack the moral foundation of the liberties we enjoy.
They’re taught to be ashamed of themselves, their country and their history, up to and including downplaying Britain’s role in the defeat of the Nazis. Rewriting history is the oldest trick in the propaganda book.
As to those who fall into the victim category, they’re told their lack of social mobility is not down to their own attitudes and conduct, rather that society is rigged against them. That’s a song you’ll hear from populists on the left and right. But particularly the left concentrates that message on minorities which is why they invented such convoluted terms as the “black community”. It’s a way of lumping them all into a single victim group, as though skin colour should be a determinant of political attitudes.
This has been a gradual cancer eating away at American society for years, and now that blacks have won equality under the law, can and do become doctors, lawyers, police chiefs, public executives, CEOs, mayors and presidents, the movement is running out of steam so the left has to keep inventing new oppression. This is relatively easy in the USA because they still have a long way to go. Criminal justice still isn’t up to scratch not least because of the ill conceived war on drugs and the welfare system.
What makes matters worse is restorative measures viewed as reparations. The moment you install this into any system you are in fact moving away from equality. The net effect of this has been to sustain a collective victimhood, which in turn has poor white communities adopting the same mentality, the net result of which is ethnic tribal voting blocs.
This is the ultimate source of identity politics where ethnic blocs enter a space race not to improve their lot, but to raise their victim status. The higher you are in the ranks the more political leverage you have.
This twin pronged attack on Western democracies ultimately results in the kind of divisive strife we see on the streets today. That’s not accidental. This is the intended effect. The far left has always had revolutionary aims, believing that they represent the hopes and aspirations of the common man. By destroying that which they cannot defeat at the ballot box, they hope to win power.
This is why Donald Trump is absolutely right to designate Antifa agitators as terrorists. They view violence as an entirely legitimate means. It’s a low level insurgency.
The tactics they employ are designed to bait the authorities which provides them all the footage they need to sustain their victimhood/oppression narrative. The Palestinians have used this technique to great effect.
The above analysis needs some refinement and and there are, of course, many caveats and areas where we can elaborate but ultimately the left has been engaged in a long standing culture war against democracy for decades.
Here in the UK the radical left also finds it can’t get a foothold by way of the ballot box. The closest they got was Jeremy Corbyn who in the end was decisively rejected by the electorate. Boris Johnson is not prime minister on his personal merit. His greatest electoral asset was Corbyn.
Without subversion the far left will never get near power which is why they ape their American counterparts, importing the methods and narratives of their campus radicals. Universities are usually the soft target. The Russians knew this in the cold war.
The problem for the British left is that it has even less chance of succeeding precisely because we don’t have that racial strife built into our national story. They’re essentially trying an organ transplant to an incompatible patient.
That is not to say it isn’t a threat to the UK as today clearly demonstrates, but though the crowd was relatively large, it’s a tiny minority which in no way enjoys broader sympathy and especially not outside of London save for dimwit lefties who never grew out of their teen activist phase. That Brits, particularly my age and younger seem to have entered a state of arrested development is a matter worthy of enquiry and is not unrelated to the long war of the left.
We’ve seen many examples in recent times of this manufactured division, particularly during the Brexit campaign where the progressive left have repeatedly revealed their visceral contempt for the British working class and would rather declare allegiance to a foreign technocratic construct that the country that bestowed their privilege upon them. They’d rather choke than ever admit that modern Britain has anything of value to offer the world unless it is subordinated by a supreme European government. They have no particular knowledge or love of the EU but it does serve their agenda to weaken the bonds of national democracy.
With the Covid lockdown now testing everyone’s patience, with a largely inept government making every avoidable error possible and trust in government gradually collapsing, the left smells blood. The nation is vulnerable and these are ideal conditions to challenge authority. All it takes is the right ignition event. In this instance they’ve chosen to piggyback on the murder of an American criminal, hoping to surf on a wave of righteous indignation.
It won’t work though. It’s a completely tone deaf move that in no way captures the mood of the country, most of which is looking onward in bewilderment as yet again the left demonstrates they live in an alternate universe. If they ever did manage to get in touch with the beating heart of the British voter we’d be in serious trouble.
Their failure, though, will not deter them from future attacks. There will be other windows of opportunity and in the meantime the continued efforts to de-normalise regular public attitudes continues. The fight is never over. The left won’t be satisfied until they’ve destroyed everything that makes Britain great. Only when there’s real oppression and real victims will they be happy… just so long as they’re in control.
