The British government and media are lying to you – grooming gangs are white too

paedop ganggrooming gang

There are gangs of sexually violent men operating the length and breadth of Great Britain. We’re all aware of Asian grooming gangs, the papers never let us forget but how many of us will admit sexual violence and misogyny is a real problem in the UK and isn’t exclusive to brown Muslim men? I would even suggest the reason it is so widespread among non white communities is because they witnessed systematic abuse of minors by the establishment and national treasures and figured no one cared so felt secure enough to abuse with impunity.

We’ve been repeatedly smacked with the ‘fact’ that Asian grooming gangs are a blight on British society and we must discuss the race and religion of perpetrators because it is important, to deny their ethnicity is to do a disservice to survivors who were selected for their race.

We’ve been discussing this for over a decade. Nobody is brushing it under the carpet, no one is pretending it doesn’t exist. We are all aware of the devastating impact these monsters have had on their young victims, those kids the authorities were forced to support, when they could no longer ignore the scale of the problem. The very same authorities who ignored the many thousands of victims of Britain’s national treasures, 1300 children violated by Jimmy Savile alone. Stuart Hall even got reduced sentencing because he only had 13 victims compared to Savile, as though it somehow negates the impact on those 13 victims. It calls into question the complete shambles that is British justice. Of course it’s a convenient scapegoat for said authorities to complain they were obstructed by ethnic communities and feared accusations of racism, than admit they don’t actually care about white working class children and probably blame them for getting involved with foreigners in the first place. I saw coppers treat white working class women like this. How many of you are aware of the very real sexual violence problem perpetrated by officers of the law? Ryan Coleman Farrow was jailed mere months for allowing countless rape cases to slip under the radar. Women have actually died from police neglect but they don’t want you to know that, it’s so much easier to blame brown Muslim men, killing two birds with one stone; covering up their own prejudices/lack of professionalism and maintaining racist structures with propaganda.

If MPs and journalists and coppers care so much about victims why aren’t they pushing for tougher sentencing of ALL child sex abusers?

Is it specifically the gang detail of Asian groomers that is so jarring for the authorities and racists alike? Or could it be they just want British victims for British perpetrators? Perhaps that is why sadistic child abusers like these don’t get much of a reaction.

I don’t think gangs are a problem for MPs and the mainstream media, not when they are white. The ‘most sickening and callous’ of grooming gangs raped babies and toddlers but the media didn’t make as much of a fuss as they did with Rotherham. Why was that, you ask?

The government and media has manipulated the impression we get of sexual violence and predators in the UK.

The agenda; sex gangs are Asian.

sc

Like we haven’t been doing exactly that on repeat for more than a decade.

Asians/Muslims haven’t done enough to condemn the attackers. All the victims are white.

I condemn Asian grooming gangs, I hope they all rot in hell. I wish exactly the same for Britain’s national treasures, the establishment, MPs, football coaches, social workers, vicars, teachers etc, majority of whom are white. I oppose those who would seek to make this an issue of race, deliberately erasing the countless victims of white perpetrators. Perhaps Sarah Champion is just securing the bigot vote for Labour, not that this in any way makes her a sympathetic character but it’s more likely she is part of the cover up that has excused the rich and powerful for numerous historic crimes against children. Royals, both dead and alive, MPs past and present, BBC stalwarts and lesser personalities, all invested in the most depraved of grooming gangs, the one that has coercive power and control and the ability to go undetected for over 50 years. This grooming gang was almost uncovered a few times but the powers that be made it disappear. Every time it threatens to resurface again, a spokesperson for the most powerful sexual predators draws our attention back to Asians.

this is racism

Asian grooming gangs are a sure fire propaganda tool. It doesn’t matter what else is going on, this dog whistle on steroids fires all the right bigots into a tirade on sexual violence and supposed injustices when none of these pissants give a toss for victim support any other day of the week.

If you genuinely care about all victims of sexual violence you’ll condemn ALL grooming gangs. Anything less is just bigoted.

White feminists, when will you condemn the white men attacking woc in the streets for their clothing and colour of skin?

aniso attack

I only ask because I can just imagine the furore if white women were being stripped, spat on and physically assaulted for not adhering to the rules as dictated by, say, extremist Muslim men. As it is, savage white males with delusions of supremacy rooted in toxic masculinity see nothing wrong with assaulting us, even though they routinely come out against Asian grooming gangs (to the exclusion of all white child rapists, of which there are significantly/disproportionately more).

I’m under no illusions that feminism works for me and women like me. I wasn’t dressed like a Muslim but I was still called a Paki bitch whilst travelling through London in the early hours of the morning. Feminism didn’t rush to salve my wounds with the sisterhood, but anarchists did with their innate sense of right and wrong. I still feel happy to identify as an anarchist but I’m hesitant to align myself with the likes of Guardian and New Statesmen ‘feminists’ who seem to have hijacked it from the rest of us. Why aren’t prominent feminists like Caroline Criado Perez, with the nouse and gall to get balls rolling, publicly denouncing the violence being levelled at women of colour and those who ‘look Muslim’? We are women first, are we not? I don’t mean the odd tweet, I mean an awareness campaign on par with the banknotes façade. They dominated front pages, and talking points with their heartfelt pleas to the bank of England. What is preventing women like CCP, Helen Lewis, Suzanne Moore, Grace Dent, Sarah Ditum, heck even Hadley Freeman and the like, from addressing this pertinent issue in their magazines and papers? They were all too quick to condemn women who did not get behind unelected Theresa May as antifeminist, her womanhood qualifying her for sisterly support, even though she frequently allows the murder and torture of women institutionalised at Yarlswood.

Why wasn’t white feminism shook to the core over the murder of Nahid Almanea, stabbed for wearing a hijab? Or the forced termination of SamSam Haji-Ali’s twin pregnancy when she was repeatedly kicked in the stomach by a ‘shabby racist’ who was later convicted of racially aggravated assault and sentenced to a paltry three years? More recently Resham Khan and her cousin were set upon by thuggish John Tomlin in an acid attack whilst they sat in traffic at a red light, she had to raise awareness of the attack herself through social media whilst recovering in hospital. If Resham had been white, the local news agencies would have picked it up the same day and there’d be a nationwide man hunt. The perpetrator would have been taken down and executed, as is the norm for white victims of oppressive forces, their attackers do not live to see another day, never mind sit trial for their crimes.

White women don’t care about woc targeted by white men because we are also frequently targeted by them.

wasi attack

This woman spat on a friend of mine in London recently, right in her face and muttered something like “people like you”. It’s not just disgusting, it is common assault. The audacity of this – older – woman to behave in such a confrontational violent manner towards a virtual stranger is not as rare as it might seem to most people. White women are presented in a light where they are vulnerable and overall, just mean well, as this excerpt from male white supremacists over at Spiked Online suggests.

spikedshite

They need protecting and whilst white feminists like Caitlin Moran think of themselves as ladettes and better than any man, they still need white knights to come to their rescue against women who are not white, like that time Glinner ignored all the racism being hurled around in favour of Moran’s right to literally not give a shit about black women.

White feminists literally do not give a shit about woc and this is why I no longer give any fucks for objectives as set out by white feminists. You can fuck your language policing, ya pearl clutching twats. No, I really do not give a flying fuck for your feeble opinion on women who vote Corbyn instead of May, not least because it is utter garbage. White feminism doesn’t strive for equality but the right to behave like white men. That is not what I thought I was getting into when I chose feminism.

If white feminists cannot condemn white male violence against woc then it is time we started the discussion/debate on the inherent violence of racist sexist white supremacy. The violence of white men and women, and how they’ve turned it on its head to present themselves as the ultimate victims. The perverse attitudes they have towards foreign bodies they want displayed for all to see (frolicking bodies in the sun, decaying bodies in the war on terror) and if you object to this way of being, the forfeiture of inalienable human rights.

All Grooming Gangs

Maajid Nawaz (a man I’m strangely familiar with even though I couldn’t tell you what he does for a living) has admonished his Muslim ‘sisters’ and pleaded with them in a ‘heartfelt’ campaign to remove their Muslim dress, and as an added bonus, dredged up the old Asian grooming gangs ‘scandal’ a coupla days later, reiterating how we as British Pakistanis should be discussing it not brushing it under the carpet. I don’t think we need reminding ever because the narrative around Asian grooming gangs is ongoing, it is the first thing bigots of all classes belch at us when we defend our right to exist free from harm.

I also find it dangerously problematic this man of Pakistani descent is contributing to a narrative which excuses the violence perpetrated by white men against Muslim women for their dress; Muslim women have been murdered, beaten so viciously they have lost their unborn children, spat at, sworn at, assaulted, all because of what they are wearing. Rather than support his Muslim sisters in their choices and seek to protect them by naming the problem –  violent white men with empire sized entitlement issues – he enables it, victimising them further. He wants white men to attack Muslim women in the street. He’s given them carte blanche when he, self-appointed mehram, is PLEADING with us to be good little Muslim girls and strip for the white people. If we dare to disobey this very public appeal then we’re, honestly, just asking for it, white supremacists are looking for any excuse. Maajid repeatedly underlines that Muslim women are attacked in the street because of Muslim men who flee terror situations in female attire. He doesn’t once mention the racist judgments white people make of anyone who is not lily white, of the sort of violence and arrogant misogyny white men subject Muslim looking women to.

I was wearing a dress cut to my knees with bare legs and my hair out when I was racially abused on a packed bus at 3am in a multicultural part of London. It does not matter how many hoops you jump, my beloved diaspora siblings, a dog born in a stable is still a dog to these mad Englishmen. Take your veil off, uncover your face, you arse even, men will still be men, racist cunts will still be racist cunts. I challenged a white male on Twitter recently, when he said he did not want Europe overrun by Asian grooming gangs yet didn’t think twice before he told me:

richdick

That’s why I find this stab at the ol’ grooming gangs all the more grotesque. This insistence that Asian grooming gangs are somehow the biggest threat to society is deliberate. This regurgitation of information to the exclusion of all other facts is propaganda. What makes the victims of Asian grooming gangs more deserving of recognition and justice than the victims of Britain’s national treasures, parliamentarians, social services, the police, the football association, the church? I know for a fact no one cared about these young victims of sadistic brown men. It went on from 1997 to 2013 and the excuse given by the all-powerful authorities is they didn’t want to offend anybody. How awfully British in its delivery and the fact that it is complete and utter bullshit. When I was a domestic and sexual violence worker for women of all colour, religions etc. I would often inquire with the officers in charge of my cases why there was such a gap in provision for women of colour and they used the exact same excuse, that the perps would insist it was a part of their culture and the authorities didn’t want to offend. From my perspective, it was just lazy racism, when you are not motivated to care about people you do not consider human you’ll make up a thousand excuses for your negligence and no one will think to question it because it is in line with their lazy racism.

Fact: no one, not the cops, or the governing authorities, or even the average white man, gives a flying shit about white working class girls. You think of them as chavs and sluts and mock them for being gym slip mums in love with Albanian refugees. I’ve seen it, heard it, I’ve worked with these young victims. Nobody cared until it appeared the rug had FINALLY been pulled out from the elite paedosadist networks and we’d finally get justice for the many thousands of historic victims.

Every time well-meaning bros like Maajid and Adil Ray contribute to this metanarrative of predatory men of colour seeking out white women to spoil, they are confirming entrenched notions of sexual violence as a basic trait found in most if not all darkie savages to the detriment of all victims of white men.

Whenever I try to point this out I am targeted by white supremacists who just keep repeating the same old shit; “why don’t Muslims condemn it?” They condemned it in 2013 and again in 2014, read all about it here.

“Why are you denying there is a problem in the British Pakistani community?” If you’d ever actually listened to me you’d know I believe all men are capable of sexual violence in a patriarchal society that actively encourages harassment and subjugation of women, both east and west. In my opinion I wish they’d all drop dead but some of y’all find this contentious too.

“You don’t want to discuss it, just pretend it never happened.” Maajid, again with his impassioned pleas, has said we must talk about the grooming scandal and yet twice, I’ve tweeted at him to let him know he has an open invitation to discuss it with me, a British Pakistani, a cultural Muslim as opposed to firm believer, a survivor of male perpetrated violence from both Pakistanis and whites, a domestic and sexual violence worker with feminist leanings and first and foremost, a woman, and he hasn’t responded and most likely won’t. I do not fulfil their stereotypes, I provide a real account of life on rainy fascist island from the perspective of those women everyone seeks to silence. Or maybe he cannot speak to me because he is NOT my mehram and can only communicate via a third party. I find it cheeky af he uses his position as a ‘brother’ to convey certain patriarchal dynamics whilst being most unbrotherly like when he asks them to take their clothes off. Whatever his angle, it wasn’t as innocent as it would seem with his emotive culturally familiar language, it just makes it even more despicable.

When they do this, recycle ‘scandals’ like these, I cannot help but wonder what they are trying to cover up. It is sensationalised and it’s difficult not to get swept up by it, rage is renewed, the facts are distorted some more until it feels like it only just happened yesterday. How many thousands of victims of white grooming gangs are currently suffering unimaginable cruelty because we’re all focused on a particular kind of rapist? When they do come forward they get accused of only doing it for the money or attention, no one ever believes them. This should be an obvious double standard, plain for everyone to see.

Don’t be a racist collaborator, Maajid, it never ends well, & fucking well answer my tweets.

Interview on the Headscarf ‘Ban’

Remember the Holocaust, punch Nazis

Today marks the 17th Holocaust Memorial Commemoration Day. It reminds us of the date the Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz was liberated by the soviet union in 1945. We also remember the victims of subsequent genocides; Bosnia, Rwanda, Darfur. It comes as a timely reminder of just how close we are yet again to experiencing a similar fate, if certain forces are allowed to continue spreading hateful propaganda.

With so many genocides behind us, you’d think we’d know by now how to prevent one. It seems easy enough to me, failed states look for scapegoats; whether Jews, Muslims, trans, disabled or LGBT, already marginalised groups are easy targets, because they have no way of defending themselves against a system that begrudgingly allows them to exist.

It seems obvious to anyone who is willing to sign their name to the truth; neo Nazism has risen off the back of a white supremacist agenda, promulgated by people/organisations we thought we could trust (like the BBC). The instinct to protect humanity is chipped away at by the state and media, gradually, drip feeding the message that all of society’s ills can be attributed to this group, unlike us, that has failed to do x. In times of economic crisis, failed states and their leaders crank up the propaganda machine to distract us from their deficiency, so we are not baying for their blood and demanding our dues but killing each other, conveniently letting our toffee nosed overlords off the hook.

How can we in good conscience honour the victims of genocides past when we seem to be teetering on the brink of another, nefariously intimated by the same individuals espousing liberal platitudes such as ‘Never Again’?

‘Beware Hate Speech, says Auschwitz Holocaust survivor’ is a featured story on the BBC website. There are also segments on Newsround such as ‘Holocaust Memorial; what can we learn?’ Yet it wasn’t so long ago the internet was aghast at the BBC for their promotion of real live fascists like Farage who was given more airtime in the run up to the general election than all the other leaders combined. You might have caught the swastika tattooed Nazi on the news who went by unchallenged by BBC presenters when he suggested the swastika was not in fact racist. The BBC likes to claim its non partisan stance reflects its programming but in refusing to label Nazis they have failed in this respect. By downplaying the Nazi, they have chosen the Nazi.

The execrable minimisation of genocidal white supremacy by your faves has enabled a 21st century descent into fascism, yet still there are those who claim to uphold liberal values whilst ushering in this kinder, gentler attitude towards Nazis. Nazis just need to be shown some humanity, allegedly, to stop behaving like Nazis. You absolutely must not punch a nazi or you’re as bad as those who slaughtered 11 million people in the name of white pride. If you’re the sort of person who has even a shred of empathy/sympathy for Nazis, you might be a nazi too, or at the very least a white supremacist. When I think of Nazis, I don’t stop at a punch, Nazis are for the wall. Y’see I understand Nazis don’t even think of me as human, just medical waste. I knew as a child Nazis would have come for me, it made learning about the holocaust shockingly real and painful.

I guess this could go some way to explain the dissonance of those who mark memorial days yet platform Nazis in their newspapers and magazines. Fascism won’t ever directly impact on Nazi collaborators, they’re white by and large, middle class too if they’re journalists and academics. A bunch of these folks were fine othering Muslim people or trans people and denying it would lead to fascism but now that it is here, they’re down for punching Nazis. Dissonance or naivete, I can never tell but it might have helped stall things had they believed us.

If we read enough we know historically Nazis respond only to violence, rather it is the only thing that can stop them dead in their tracks. Nazis are cowards, they are opportunists, they thrive only because liberals legitimise their extremism, they claim to be moderates yet turn away refugees and make distinctions between good and bad immigrants, Europeans and non Europeans, Muslims and Jews. Nazis do love to divide rule and conquer so we must respond with solidarity, whether it personally impacts on us or not. When they other even one of us, we must fight back together as a whole. Othering is a white supremacist tool used to justify dehumanisation then genocide, it has no place in a civilised society. It is bullying to speak of other identities whilst excluding them from the discussion, protesting this fact does not make the protester a bully but a revolutionary.

The world is in need of a therapist, to show us all the incongruence of our words against our actions, and the good grace to admit our deepest faults, in the belief we can all be forgiven if we uphold the truth.

In our post truth, fake news world, I despair.

“It’s not racist to say.. you don’t care about black people.”

Much of the rhetoric around racism the past few years has been rooted in denial of its very existence. It’s not racist to have an opinion, even if that opinion dehumanises non whites. The definition of racism has been distorted so that we cannot complain of racism unless a white person was on hand to witness it and their criteria is met.

Even then it might not be that racist, the white person is just ignorant through no fault of their own, we must try to understand the economic difficulties that inspired their Very Legitimate Concerns and accept their superior status on account of their whiteness.

moron  morangoldacre

When Caitlin Moran told the word she literally couldn’t give a shit about black representation, what effect did that have on ignorant white people? The woman who taught liberal middle England how to be a white feminist attended Michael Gove’s wedding even though she’s a ‘leftie’, also thinks it’s funny to punch down at those with less privilege, people with HIV status or trans people for example. All we ever did was point out how wrong this was, nauseated as we were at this odious bigotry. Imagine if she and her friends had replied “I’m awfully sorry I’ve made you feel this way, it was not my intention. Please accept my sincere apologies, I will do better”.

IMAGINE.

Admitting fault in a toxic post truth world of their own making is impossible for these most fragile of snowflakes. They double down. They responded to our increasingly (understandably) hostile call outs with pointed irreverence.

3 years of this blatant propaganda (Lee Rigby provided a catalyst on the back of years of fake news following 9/11) and denial of its trickle down effect has culminated in the rise of cowardly fascism, white supremacists emboldened by the actions of those with the power to do immense good, who’ve demonstrated consistently their intolerance of folks deemed *other by the most privileged in society. Those who possess the kind of privilege that could bring world peace, if they weren’t so white, greedy and self obsessed. They lie, they turn the truth upside down and in doing so condemn 100s if not 1000s to a backlash incited from their national platforms to their international audiences.

farage-of-the-left

60% of people don’t read past headlines, and the journalists know this. Object and they’ll pull out the Journo Card “if you’d actually bothered to read it.. I address that further down in the piece”. How gullible do they think we are? Every word is deliberate. They make the news but they also want to be the news, so playing the victim even under all of that privilege keeps them relevant. They understand power and control dynamics and are aware they possess most of it. This campaign to undermine and erase various feminists of colour, trans women, sex workers etc has been successful, most people bought into their divisive narrative. Most people believed the lies.

We cannot now be expected to believe they are on our side, ready to fight fascism and smash white supremacy. Not when they’ve done some of their best work drip feeding bigotry to the unquestioning masses. No one wants to go down in history as a nazi collaborator, but there are no free passes here.

How to prevent genocide

Whether or not you believed survivors of pre Brexit British Values one thing is for certain, most people have witnessed now the consequences of state propaganda and wilful apathy towards people who are not like us. Being a seat of power in the enlightened west doesn’t protect us from the greedy man and his pursuit for coercive power and control, it merely delays the inevitable. It makes it easier even. For years the British press and various personalities on Twitter have denied the persecution of British minorities with the excuse that debate is a pillar of any civilised society, conveniently excluding said minorities from sharing their experiences. To make matters worse they depicted a scenario where they were being bullied and oppressed by minorities for protesting the ways in which they were being misrepresented (the free speech demonstration attended by Namazie and Tatchell springs to mind). This is called propaganda. It is a tactic used by powerful aggressors to incite divisions in order to take the spotlight off their inhumane behaviour. Most Britons happily fell for it.

Then Brexit happened and Polish people were targeted. Foreign white NHS staff were threatened with lists. An Irish woman was told she needed to provide additional identification because she was a foreign national, her fear and outrage both palpable and oddly familiar. It’s impossible for me not to feel just a smidgen of bitterness towards these people. Who will speak up for you now they have come for you, when you didn’t speak up for all the others? Marmite has had more support in this one day than Britain’s minorities have had since the Tories seized power. This misanthropy will come back 10 fold on the citizens of rainy fascist island. We’re seeing the first shockwaves from our devalued currency; Unilever has withdrawn its products from Tesco’s shelves because the latter refused to increase prices. What kind of evil corporate entity rushes to capitalise on the misfortunes of the poorest in society? Capitalism is murder, by default, it squeezes the life out of those at the bottom, starves them to death.

Perhaps now you will look to this model without sneering. The 8 stages of genocide are laid out to remind us we have been here before, but there are strategies to prevent or halt this jaunt down fascism street. Still, I will break it down so there is no confusion.

CLASSIFICATION – Categorising Asian people, all of them, as pakis and therefore Muslims has enabled violence against British Asians ranging in colour from beige to dark brown, whether Muslim, Sikh or Hindu and non believers like myself. Islamophobia, openly encouraged on public platforms from national treasures like Richard Dawkins, David Starkey, Katie Hopkins etc should have been widely condemned by their peers when they said it was not racist to criticise Islam. The west has conflated the people of the Asian subcontinent with Islam > Arabs > Taliban > Al Qaeda > Terrorism, they have racialised a belief system as they did with Jewish people pre Holocaust, who were as varied in their origins. The media could have played a part in informing society of the differences in people, that the actions of one do not reflect millions of others and should have condemned the practice of collective punishment instead of surreptitiously fanning the flames.

SYMBOLISATION – The west has long held a grudge against the visible differences we have with each other. Their stance is not only that they disapprove of other cultures but that other cultures must bow to superior western values on most things. The burqa is considered the ultimate symbol of oppression to enlightened westerners who never thought to question BBC narratives. This item of clothing is now a beacon to racists everywhere who cannot appreciate the irony of beating on women they believe need saving. To the women who choose to wear it it has become a two finger salute to those who would seek to control them. Bottom line, we must always condemn the practice of controlling the rights of women to freely express their beliefs. The rights of women to wear whatever the hell they want – no exceptions. That some feminists from the middle class white arena object to the clothes other women wear is a sign that maybe their feminism isn’t inclusive at all and maybe isn’t even feminism at all but white supremacy.

Immigrants fare no better in a system that seeks to control how we view people. At the beginning of this year, asylum seeking residents in the North East of England feared they were being marked out for easy identification when G4S, notorious contractors noted for their human rights abuses, painted their doors red which had already led to abuse from local communities. Actions such as these must come as a shock to all, contractors must lose their contracts for engaging in this dangerous activity. We have the power to hold them legally responsible, we can ban hate symbols and speech if they lead to criminal activity, as it has many times before.

DEHUMANISATION – People have a natural aversion to the taking of life, it’s all a bit close to home UNLESS you dehumanise targets so they do not trigger the instinct to protect. If you label them vermin, parasites they become easier to dispose of. These processes take years. Katie Hopkins should be legally held to account for the ways in which she has dehumanised people fleeing wars we created. People like Trump need to be held accountable by the international community, not allowed a platform from which to spew his hateful diatribe, never mind stand for president.

If you do not condemn hate at every juncture, if you think it has nothing to do with you, you’re wrong, we’re all connected. Denying one person, one group their humanity has a knock on effect throughout society, especially if done in the public eye. Precedents are set. It is better to suffocate narratives which dehumanise even one, we’re simply not evolved enough to hold it there.

The British government must be held to account for the ways in which it herds non nationals like cattle and tortures them, including pregnant women, at centres like Yarlswood. The UN must do a better job of fulfilling its original purpose, that is to implement human systems and incarcerate those who seek to degrade humanity. Prevention rather than cure was the intention and yet we are still waiting.

Broadcasters have a responsibility here too. Stop pushing far right narratives, BBC. Stop glorifying empire and supporting Nigel Farage. Similarly print journalists have their part in subtly reinforcing their desire for white supremacy, language that only refers to the white working class and asks for a Farage of The Left must be highlighted and ridiculed, if not criminalised. 21st century fascists have amended their behaviour so you cannot instantly mark them out as a racist/fascist. The commentariat may not use racial slurs but they do a brilliant job of gatekeeping and subliminal propaganda, or microaggressions.

ORGANISATION – Hate groups like Britain First must be proscribed. With the state hesitant to do this they encouraged it to propagate and proliferate. This way when the far right attacks, the British government can pretend it is innocent of any atrocities. Jo Cox, a serving MP was murdered in broad daylight by someone espousing Britain First ideology during his frenzied attack. In the months that have followed we have learnt of her inclusivity and her heart. She was targeted for these, because she believed our shared humanity unites us.

The far right have been organising and mobilising since the death of Lee Rigby when the state and media propaganda painted a situation that called for drastic action. Yougov polls excluded British poc, the PM called on Cobra, it was framed as an unprecedented attack even though it was the second of its kind in his lifetime. Our numbers were abysmally low for the counter demonstrations against hate marches the far right imposed on our towns and cities, the length and breadth of Britain, even when we begged and pleaded with those who do have the power to change things to make their support known.

The cops, media, politicians and far right have a symbiotic relationship. If even one of these were to properly stand against hate the whole hellish system would collapse.
It should concern us all that our failed state is such a prolific supplier of arms to war torn nations. Where is the UN and its arms embargo of nations engaging in genocide? Must we experience the genocide first in order to qualify?

isbritracist

POLARISATION – Anyone who promotes this idea of ‘us’ and ‘them’, people like Katie Hopkins and those who state they merely wish to take care of British workers first are choosing to exploit the idea that it is not racist to put white people first. In a poll I conducted this past week, 25% of people answered no when asked if Britain was racist. Despite the murders, propaganda, the significant increases in attacks following media lies a large number of Brits believe Britain is not racist. They’re just defending their loot, even if it means considering other human beings as less worthy of resources (that were stolen from them most likely). This earth is not just for white people, it belongs to us all. There is no us and them, only the greedy bastards accustomed to evading responsibility for their own murderous actions, happy to let you die for them.

PREPARATION – At the recent Tory party conference in Birmingham the PM reinforced the usual racism but home secretary Amber Rudd took it one step further. In a move that would suddenly jolt slumbering Brits into action, she called for companies to draw up lists of their foreign workers. Non British LSE academics were informed by government representatives their input was no longer required. Suddenly the majority of people could no longer ignore the cow bells heralding in fascism, not when their French, German, Spanish etc workers lives were under threat of expulsion. This, my dears, has been the harsh reality for Britain’s Asian population since 9/11. Our lives have been scrutinised, we exist only at their behest, and the world has largely allowed it. My gran, rest her soul, came to this country in the 60s and she never let go of the fear they would get rid of us once we’d served our purpose. This inhumanity has been extended to Europeans and no one likes it, nor should they. Such a blatant attack on those we don’t usually target is a worrying sign the establishment don’t give a shit.

“At this stage a genocide emergency must be declared”.

Whilst methods differ and we cannot always be sure who they’re coming for next, we cannot deny the British government has allowed for its own citizens to be picked off by the state because they no longer qualify for additional support. People are dying from starvation in Great Britain, 1000s have perished when their mental, physical needs were denied. If we are to judge a country on the way it treats the most vulnerable, international condemnation should rain hard on this fascist island.

EXTERMINATION – If we’ve reach this stage, I’m not sure there’s anything else I can add other than fuck you, Britain and fuck you, world. In the words of my favourite communist sister “I hope the exit is  joyful quick and I hope never to return.”

DENIAL – The thing about fascists is they’re ultimately cowards, strong as a mob, weak and pathetic on their own. They never admit to their involvement even if they were the sole judge jury and executioner. Many would rather die at their own hand than ever be captured by the opposition and held to account. These stages of genocide are not static, there isn’t only one way this can go. Sometimes genocide is quick and over before you even know it began, other times it is a long and arduous process, frustrating because of the way denial plays a huge part. People will use slurs then say those slurs are not racist and the majority will go with that. It is the majority that call outcomes, the fence sitters, the anti intellectuals who are happy to take your word because you share certain identifiers. It is the intelligentsia who control the majority, through their newspapers and radio slots, prime time news on the telly. Ours are mostly bigoted white supremacists and it’s their fault we are discussing genocide in this day and age. They are neoliberals who cannot distinguish between far right thugs and antifa or empathise with the women and children they bomb in Syria. They must take back all their words and publicly condemn this government, not hold it up as feminist or revolutionary in any way.

UPDATE: It’s been brought to my attention this model has been revised. It now includes 2 further stages; DISCRIMINATION and PERSECUTION. No doubt amended to accurately reflect 21st century methods of fascism. I particularly commend the author’s stance on the words ‘counter terrorism’.
