Sometimes, comments sections provide incredibly inspired posts. I've featured such before from the likes of IanB, who has unfortunately announced his self-removal from the blogosphere, either as blog contributor, or part of the commentariat.
Ian's contributions were always immensely thoughtful, but then, so is this by a Laura Roberts, on the racial commotion in Manchester today.
Hardly a surprise. It's the start of Rivers of Blood.
I abhor racism: and that means racism from ALL sides. If you continue to impose one incoming race's laws and preferences on the indigenous people of a country, you are going to create massive turmoil, disruption, antagonism, anger, resentment and confusion.
I have lived around the world. I know of no other country that welcomes foreigners into it that hate it with a venom. I know of no other country that destroys it's own culture, traditions, values and everything that makes it that particular country, as we do when we try to change it to suit incomers. I know of no other country embarrassed of it's own flag, where any patriotism that on the one hand we are urged to celebrate is slammed as racism at other times.
When I have lived around the world, I rejoice in their cultures and their pride for their country, heritage and customs. I modify my behaviour to theirs and even when I have to cover my head, or take off my shoes, or have to be escorted because a lone woman out and about is not permitted I do so unquestioningly so, and I honour their rules.
I know of no other country on earth that diminishes it's own culture and gives in to the demands of visitors and newcomers that we must adapt to them, rather than the other way round. They would not do the same in their country.
And so we have a growing anger, sometimes irrational and extreme, but mostly highly rational and deserved, and it will only get worse until the traditions and culture of Britain is restored and celebrated, just as other countries do with theirs.
Failure to do so will result in carnage.
Now, whether one agrees with Laura's opinion or not, it is clear that this is a view which is widely held. That Britishness is being eroded isn't in question - our politicians tell us so on a regular basis.
The problem, as is customary, is how our MPs view such beliefs. People who advance Laura's view, however well argued, are instantly pigeon-holed as being motivated by racial prejudice. It's a concern that isn't allowed to be raised. It is off the menu.
There may well be a few MPs who would secretly agree with this summation, but they are desperately scared of raising a voice for fear of invoking a shit-storm of righteous indignation such as we have already seen this week. In short, their career would be over if they didn't have balls of steel to stand firm against the established 'consensus' (which is anything but, once one steps out of the elite back-slapping bubble)
Those who read here regularly will know that I rail against the ignorance of issues which affect the working man. They are almost invisible to politically and healthily-correct representatives in parliament. Certain subjects are not to be discussed as the fake charities and quangoes have engineered a black and white scenario whereby arguing in defence of rights for those whose view differs from the puritan norm is political suicide.
The escalating EDL protests are a similarly dangerous problem, and they are being irresponsibly ignored. Motivating just a dozen people to take time off from their usual 'bread and circuses' weekend is extremely difficult - once you see 2,000 of them, it should be crystal clear that something serious is occurring and it has to be tackled before things get out of hand.
There is an obvious disconnect here, and someone in Westminster has to get hold of it before it turns into something fucking ugly. Just firing the term 'racist' around, dismissing those who are protesting as irrelevant, and pretending it isn't an issue simply won't work.
Nearly one million people unashamedly voted BNP on June 4th. I believe they were disastrously wrong to do so, but they have a beef which must be addressed. By someone. Somewhere.
Adhering to politically-correct dogma and pandering to state-paid righteous fucksticks isn't going to cut it when things get truly nasty.
Any voter considered lower than middle-class quite simply isn't catered for anymore. They are dictated to at every turn, they see no-one representing them, their every wish or belief is dismissed unless it agrees with the pre-determined progression that career politicans have mapped out for them.
They must comply or their voice won't be heard.
At the moment they are battling each other on the streets. One day, they will work out that such energy is wasted and will, instead, turn on the ones who are responsible for this country's mess.
And when they march over Westminster Bridge, I will be applauding, whether I agree with what they are marching about, or not.
