This is a very sensitive subject, almost taboo, to write about. So I’ll start with the less controversial aspects. The whole subject is caused historically by colonization and in more recent times by mass migration, and in both cases by the new influx of population refusing to respect the indigenous people, their culture, their language, and refusing to adapt to their rules and way of life and respect these.
Historically the most obvious and extreme cases of alien cultures completely swamping and destroying, not only the indigenous culture of the country, but most of its people came with the brutal colonization of places like Australasia and both North and South America. In these places the local indigenous population, i.e. various tribes of Native Americans, Aborigines and Maoris, were all but exterminated and European culture was imposed.
Africa and parts of Asia also suffered from colonization, the Indian sub-continent (including Pakistan, Bangladesh, etc.) came under the British Crown for years, and South Africa had Dutch (Afrikaans) and English culture imposed upon it. Other parts of Africa and Asia also suffered, though many have now gained full independence and shaken off much of the imposed culture.
I include in this category of colonization all but wiping out the local indigenous culture and sometimes the population (or expelling them) the Malvinas (Falkland Islands), Gibraltar, Hong Kong, etc. Even though the local population may now support the current cultural heritage this is largely because it was imposed for so long, and the locals are either descendants of colonists or have become swamped by their culture to the extent of forgetting their own.
We then come to the more sensitive, because it is more relevant to the present day, subject of mass migration. First let’s look at migration on a smaller scale. My father and many of his relations emigrated from Cyprus to the UK. None of them assimilated fully into the local culture of Britain. None of them learned the language properly, instead sticking with Greek-Cypriot friends, newspapers, nowadays satellite television, and culture generally. Even relatives who have lived here 50 years or more find English difficult because they so rarely speak it. The only exception is children brought up here who are usually fully bilingual, and some of whom have married outside the Greek-Cypriot community.
The other side of the coin is British emigration to places like Spain, where they often make no attempt to integrate or even learn Spanish. It is completely unacceptable for British people to live in Spain in their own communities, not speaking the local lingo, and demanding full English breakfasts at local eating establishments rather than trying out local cuisine at least occasionally.
At the same time the inability in many areas of our big cities to find take-away establishments or even butchers which are not ‘hal-al’ is also unacceptable. Why should indigenous, non-Muslim British people be forced to eat hal-al meat products when we have spent years trying to introduce more humane methods, like stunning, into our slaughter-houses? The wearing of the head-to-toe Burka should also be banned in public places. What they do in their mosques and private meeting-places, homes, etc. is entirely up to them. But in public places we cannot tolerate the kind of clothing which could conceal bombs and suicide packs, and which also prevents identification for less serious crimes via CCTV.
In the 1950s there was mass immigration, sponsored and encouraged by the British government of the day, from the West Indies. Later Enoch Powell, in an infamous speech widely condemned at the time, warned about ‘rivers of blood’ on our streets if this was not controlled. Unfortunately his prophecy, condemned as ‘racist’ at the time, has proved to be all too true. Not, it has to be said, largely the blood of indigenous British people (though they have also been affected as victims), but mainly black-on-black violence centered on drug and gang culture along with knife and gun crime. The almost complete withdrawal at the same time of policemen ‘on the beat’ has led to complete anarchy in some areas of our big cities, to no-go areas on some estates, and to mainly black teenagers and young people being murdered in gang-related violence every year, almost every month. This is all totally unacceptable and must be stamped out.
Jamaica, where a lot of the black population have their ethnic roots, is one of the most violent societies on the planet. The gangsta-rap music which comes from there glorifies violence, homophobia, murder, etc. It then influences not only young blacks listening to it, but also many young whites. We should not tolerate this kind of alien culture, nor the gangs, gun and knife crime which comes with it and is encouraged by this kind of ‘music’ (I use the word very loosely).
One thing which should be done I believe is to de-criminalize drugs. Much of the gang culture is centered on the supply of illegal drugs, and like prostitution which should also be completely de-criminalized with legal, licensed brothels, the illegality leads to gang culture and violence.
Armed police need to be put on the streets to deal with this armed gang warfare, to break up the gangs and teach the gang members true respect for other people, for the indigenous culture of Britain, and for each other. By this I most definitely do not mean sticking a knife in anybody who ‘disses’ you or who strays into the ‘territory’ of another gang.
This gang warfare among our young people, largely black (though politicians who dare say this are then penalized for speaking the truth), has gotten out of hand. If the police won’t or can’t deal with it, then the army, currently murdering people and causing total anarchy in places like Afghanistan, should be brought home and put on the streets in our big cities to break up these gangs and teach them respect for the community, initially in military-style boot camps if necessary, and later by putting them into community service. In fact compulsory community service should be introduced for ALL teenagers of all ethnic backgrounds, including indigenous British, and of both sexes. Two or three years serving the community at large would teach them respect and do everybody the world of good.
Then there is the problem of Muslim extremists, some of whom wish to establish a babaric Islamic Republic in Britain under Sharia law. This would include horrible deaths by stoning, decapitation, etc. for adultery, homosexuality, and other things they don’t like. This is also totally unacceptable and such extremists should be immediately expelled from the country or incarcerated, on uninhabited island prison camps if our prisons can’t take them.
There are also smaller groups of immigrant populations which cause violence, usually among their own ethnic community. Such as the Chinese Tongs and Turkish gang culture, revolving around protection rackets, etc.
The answer to all of these problems with immigrant populations who refuse to respect our indigenous culture is three-fold. One, more police on the beat, armed if necessary. Two, the requirement for every immigrant to undergo citizenship classes and tests – any that do not comply by, say, speaking the language fully after say 5 years should be expelled. Three, as stated above compulsory community service for all young people to teach them respect for society.
I don’t regard any of the above as ‘racist’. I accept black people and those of other races if they accept and respect European culture. I don’t even regard myself as a British citizen, but rather as a citizen of the European Union. I don’t object to any ethnic community maintaining their own culture and traditions so long as it doesn’t impinge on the freedom of those outside their ethnic community or lead to violence on our streets. In other words, keep all the multicultural things intact but just use a bit of common sense and don’t allow ‘multiculturalism’ to mean we have to allow black teenage gangs to kill each other on the streets because it is ‘part of their culture’, or tolerate Muslim extremists who demand all infidels be executed and Sharia law introduced into Britain.
Failing to tackle all these problems, or being scared to implement policies like ‘stop and search’ for all teenagers and young people, inevitably leads to ghettoization of our inner cities as the white indigenous populaton move out, and also fuels the racist policies of parties like the BNP. In short, failure to tackle these problems now could well lead to complete anarchy and then a backlash of fascism in Britain.
