Racism

SHARE
Talking to an intelligent Englishman years ago about the EU, I said, 
'I don't want England to be governed by foreigners'. 
His reply was: 
'Isn't that racist?'

  2. of course that isn't racist, only mildly xenophobic or you would not tolerate the succession of Royal families. Saying that you want to see less brown faces there is thgough.

      But Paul didn't say that.

      Aren't you the one exhibiting a racist view?

    3. I want to reduce mass immigration into Europe and within Europe to manageable proportions to preserve the identities of ancient European countries, to preserve them as ethnic states. Most Europeans agree with me, judging by opinion polls. It's not about colour prejudice but about preserving the character of beautiful and ancient polities, which we have inherited and hold in trust.

      Oh, why be so shy?, Why don't you quote some examples to support your claim.

    5. Anonymous thinks it's mildly xenophobic not to want to be ruled by foreigners.


      Why am I talking to someone who thinks that and does not give even a false name?

    6. Oh I tried LOrdFistofDeath23 as my alias, but decided it was too much of a mouthful and might send the wrong signal to other like minded liberals.

      Like it or not Paul you are fighting a tide with Globalisation that your kind have already lost. Short of a Thermonuclear or Religious war ( perhaps both )of such savagery that the back step would make the burning of the library in Alexandria a minor catastrophe for knowledge and enlightenment you are already a living fossil.
      I would agree with Dalrymple's quote

      " Political power or office often gives those who possess it the illusion they control events. That, after all is the reason why the story of Canute retains, and will always retain, its relevance to the current political situation"

    7. Of course Canute was a Dane wisely ruling England, and none of the current crop share his humility before God

    8. Canute was a good king though a foreigner. The story of the tide is that he intentionally showed his courtiers that he could not hold back the tide. Globalisation is a good thing in many ways but does not necessitate mass migrations. In Molesworth's words: "Any Fule Kno That"

    9. Here is a much more interesting story about Canute. https://pvewood.blogspot.ro/2012/12/i-knew-king-george-ii-died-in-lavatory.html

  3. 'foreigners' is code for 'eu'
    eu is run by merkel
    ...if you don't like any of this, or say, immigration quotas, well... it may be seen as 'collision of misogyny and white supremacy' Like here:

      And UK is run by women - leader of Conservative party and PM, leaders of Welsh nats and Scot nats.

      Aren't you the one who is exhibiting a sexist view?

    2. Not to mention HM QE II - I feel fairly certain Paul has the highest respect for her :D.

    3. Though the influence of the Sovereign always declines with queens regnant, as demonstrated by: Mary I, Elizabeth I, Anne, Victoria.

      Such a shame the British are so misogynist :).

      And no mention of Mrs Thatcher yet.

      I wonder when France, Portugal, Italy, Greece, Spain, Austria, Romania, not to mention Brussels, will kneel to a woman, apart from Frau Merkel of course ;)
