“If things are to alter in the next fifty years then we must re-embrace Byron’s ideal of the the cultured thug!” – Jonathan Bowden
In what is quite possibly one of the most presumptuous articles ever penned by a so-called journalist, India Knight, a woman of mixed Belgian and Pakistani heritage, she harangues Brexit Britain for “Denying people’s experience of racism” by saying it is “unedifying” and that “the British are better than that!”
The article describing how she has gone to Bruges, unable to face the celebrations of the Leave Campaigners and “that glib yakking of conservative characters like Mark Francois”. Her fingers apparently clinging to her her Belgian passport, an item she now treasures, after having lived in Britain for 45 years and earning a very good living as a propagandist for the pro-cosmopolitan liberal left chattering classes in London.
“I am a European”, she insists “and also brown and culturally English, an elastic amalgam that has always felt fluid and fortunate”. A state of mind that translates to my way of thinking as ‘I have my cake and want to eat it.’ Knight defaming those who disagree with her amalgam theory, she says:
“Some people have started defining other people solely by their racial identity, whether that be their European-ess or the colour of their skin. At the same time, they have not allowed this second group to object to being defined in this way, or to express a view about what it feels like”.
The example she gives of this is that “on endless news and current affairs TV shows in the recent context of Meghan Markle – a brown or black person has been invited on to discuss the topic of race and every single time they are being told by white people they are seeing racism where there is none.”
Knight raging, no doubt in response to the recent outburst by actor Laurence Fox against WOKE attitudes on Question Time and the sometimes provoking statements made by the low-grade Shock-Jock Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain, “I mean, I can’t say this loudly enough: if someone who is not the same as you says “This is what it feels like to be me”, you can’t say “No, it doesn’t, you’re a liar!”
The diatribe continues:
“It seems to me there’s been a fairly dramatic regression when it comes to questions of race, gender and identity in recent years, where somehow minorities of all kinds have become the oppressors and pose some existential threat to, generally older white men. Trying to articulate any of this in public results in you being called WOKE, and for the benefit of any, especially those tortoise types, WOKE, like its predecessor Politically Correct, is not an insult: it just means you’re not a massive prat. It means you’re trying to engage with the world and everyone living in it, regardless of who they are or where they come from. It’s a very British quality.”
Really? How dare some ‘ethnic cocktail’ who writes in her own personal multicultural interest, is anti-Brexit and is clearly advocating for Open Borders think she should be taken seriously. Her snake-like sentiments revealed in statements like:
“I’m putting my faith in the version of Britishness that means moving forwards and embracing the new, rather than looking backwards and pining for what’s gone, shutting people down and telling them they’re wrong, to see discrimination as effectively telling people to “Know your place. We tolerate you people but only up to a point. Be more grateful and make less noise!””
Can you think of a greater inversion of the truth? India Knight may want to stand in our shoes for a while? It is people like us, the real British and real Europeans, who are shunned for our views, castigated, cautioned and sometimes arrested under contrived Hate Speech laws for criticising the violent aggression, anti-social behaviour and media and legal bias in favour of the ever-growing non-whites communities flooding uninvited and unwanted into our homelands. A demographic replacement on an unprecedented scale that invokes many to describe it has a long slow genocide.
The Remoaner, Knight, concluding her piece by indicating her utter contempt for people who protest “We Want Our Country Back” by saying “They think they’ve won the day, but Oh Contraire, as we say in Bruges. Britishness is bigger than them”.
But ask yourself who are are the “We” that she speaks of and who are the “Them” she decries? I suspect her “We” are the “new British citizens” aligned with the Marxists and Luvvies Knight mixes with at cocktail parties. The “Them” of course are the British version of Hilary Clinton’s “Deplorables” or as the BBC condescendingly fictionalise us “The left behind”. The people who philosopher, artist and author Jonathan Bowden speaks to when in his famous oration he says: “Being British is not enough. Know what you are. To read about your own culture is a revolutionary act…Liberalism is moral syphilis…If people like us ruled modernity the texture and nature of life would be different in every respect. Firstly cultures would be mono-ethnic; there would be respect for the past glories of our civilisation and our thinking; and we would not preface every attempt to be strong by saying “I’m sorry for what we have done” – We are not sorry!” and the sooner pond-life like India Knight realise this and grasp the fact we will do everything in our power to stop her vision of mulatto filled utopia coming to fruition, so much the better.
