Few things reveal the muddled thinking of our political class on the most important issue of our times, national identity, than its appeals to patriotism.
For how can David Cameron ask us to tell Scottish voters prior to Scotland’s referendum on Independence that ‘we want you to stay’ because Scotland’s going would undermine the importance and clout of Britain on the world stage and in the next breath declaim that leaving the EU would be a disaster for Britain, whilst doing little to stem the immigrant tide, especially from third world countries?
The truth is that it is membership of the EU which has helped to weaken the bonds between Scotland and the rest of the UK. The SNP views the EU as a safe haven from what many Scots see as the unwelcome embrace of the English, choosing to ignore the downside of membership.
And the immigrant tide is part and parcel of the globalisation of the economy embraced by Cameroonian neo –cons. True, Cameron is doing something about reducing the attractiveness of the benefits which immigrants have come here from the ends of the earth to enjoy at our expense, some of them hanging off the backs of lorries in their eagerness to get here. But he welcomes immigrants who come here to find work, accepting that they will be taking jobs which should have gone to our own people, regardless of whether or not foreigners are better qualified or more willing to take work. If they are, whose fault is that? Whose polices encouraged it?
These factors: EU membership and the immigrant tide -are destroying our identity, as they are meant to do. EU membership is all about the destruction of ancient nation-states in a borderless new Europe. Mass immigration is designed to rob the peoples of these nations of their ethnic identity. After a period of multiculturalism and multiracialism, they are expected ultimately to slump into sameness, itself an intermediate stage to the ghastly ‘utopia’ of global homogeneity.
If one advocates these policies, as Cameron does, then to call on a British patriotism which you are engaged in undermining in order to save a country which your policies are all about wiping from the face of the earth is either plain stupidity or just a cynical ploy.
If anything, to be remotely consistent, Cameron should be welcoming Scottish independence, not opposing it. After all the Union with Scotland has endured because of the racial, religious and cultural affinities the Scots have had with the rest of the UK. When those factors have been undermined thanks to the official policy of encouraging ‘diversity’ especially effective in England what on earth is there for the Scots to want to remain in the UK to chafe under the – at least- nominal government of the Parliament in England? Why should Cameron not welcome the final breaking of these ancient ethnic bonds, to be subsumed in the broader EU? Isn’t that what his policies all point towards?
All that remains are subsidies. And if the Scots have to be bribed to stay in a marriage of diverse nothingness, it won’t be long before the rest are happy to wave goodbye.
It‘s no good Cameron appealing to the spirit of the Olympics in his ludicrous claim on the patriotism which he has worked so hard to undermine. The Olympic crowds were almost wholly white, as were the crowds at the Queen’s Jubilee and the Royal Marriage celebrations. These events revealed the true nature of Britain’s remaining patriotism, something which the BBC and the rest of the Cultural Marxist media was careful not to notice. They were among the last patriotic cries of a dispossessed people which has yet to realise the extent of its betrayal.
As for Alex Salmond; the idea that ‘New Scots ‘ can be assimilated into Scottish culture as if shared ethnicity, religion and racial history have no bearing on it, is pure fantasy or ignorance. Does he really believe this garbage? The truth is that his movement is fuelled on ethnic antipathy towards the English, an antipathy which has been muted or merely jocular in the past only because of the affinities already mentioned and because of the subsidies the rest of the UK pay.
Dark clouds often have a silver lining If Scotland does leave the Union, one welcome outcome will be a swift and decisive shift of the political centre of gravity to the right. Scotland is overwhelmingly New Labour when it comes to Westminster elections. Perhaps that is what Cameron is really worried about.
