Yesterday, Islam v Europe offered up a spoof news quote about ethnic English mobs converging on London to avenge the murder of Richard Bowes, in order to illustrate the observation that
... it highlights an interesting aspect of the gushing praise that was lavished on Tariq Jahan last week after his son was killed during the rioting. The fact that Muslims were likely to go on a violent killing spree in response to the deaths, had Tariq Jahan not successfully calmed them, just seems to be taken for granted. It is regarded as "normal" that when a person from a third-world ethnic group dies, fellow members of his ethnic group will go out rioting, bashing and killing in response. Is this state of affairs not something that deserves to be deplored rather than praised or simply accepted?
I find myself wondering the same thing about the various community self-defence actions that sprang up during the recent festivities. Kurds, Pakistani Muslims and Sikhs were lauded for their community spirit, pluck, and general downright jolly-good-fellow-ness when they took to the streets, armed to the teeth with baseball bats, meat cleavers and other handy weapons to protect their properties and holy places. The White folk of Eltham who patrolled their own streets were excoriated with the well-practised loathing the Righteous elite reserves especially for the White working class.
And yet, as I understand it, the situations were comparable. The Sikhs of Southall and the Kurds of Dalston turned out in response to an anticipated threat of attack. The Whites of Eltham, I hear from some sources, turned out against a rumoured threat of racially motivated attack by Blacks coming down from Lewisham. Both popular responses were driven by a reasonable, or at least not unreasonable, expectation of disorder and a desire to counter it in the absence of a credible police response. Yet the "ethnic" response is regarded as both laudable and natural, while the indigenous response is condemned as thuggish disorder to be suppressed, and also a very handy opportunity to take a pop at the BNP and EDL.
Could this be because, while they hate the native English, the liberal elite also harbour low expectations of the non-White population they so cherish? To put it with a certain Starkeyesque directness, surely our leaders are not thinking along the lines of, "these Darkies are savages fresh out of the jungle and they don't know any better".
Heavens to Betsy, surely not!
Well, we effectively tolerate forced marriages, honour killings, FGM, and all manner of unsavoury behaviours which are "part of their culture, innit". The elite mumble piously against these practices but take no real action against them.
Hmm. A little more application of the "our gaff, our rules" principle might not go amiss, methinks. No concessions, if you want to live here, you behave according to our rules, or you fuck off.
I always find it odd that Spiked should have evolved out of a magazine called Living Marxism, not that I have ever read the latter, despite the efforts of its street vendors to sell me subscriptions.
Anyway, any website that Sunny Hundal hates is definitely in with a chance as far as I'm concerned.
Spot on Edwin- the acuity of your mind-reading of the righteous has been verified in the last 48 hours, with the news of the fatal tasering in Cumbria of Mr Burns. For some reason, upon which the righteous don't dwell, his death at the hands of the police hasn't elicited the riots & looting that the the death of Mr Duggan in Tottenham achieved less than a fortnight ago.
None of our overpaid commentariat are remotely surprised at this conjunction of events- I wonder why ?
The 7' spears and 3' long swords looked eminently functional to me. Not a condemnatory word in the article though.
"Its ok, Officer. The sword I decapitated him with was a ceremonial one."
"Fair enough, Mr Singh, carry on about your business."
