Peter Hitchens beklager: “It wasn’t because we liked immigrants, but because we didn’t like Britain.”

Peter Hitchens i Daily Mail – How the invasion of immigrants into every corner of England has made a mockery of PM’s promise to close the door (via Snaphanen).

It really is not much good the Prime Minister turning round now and saying to the people of Boston [ Lincolnshire, England] ‘this must stop’. Even if anyone believed he can or will do anything… the event has happened. The greatest mass migration in our history has taken place. …

And it was at least partly my own fault. When I was a Revolutionary Marxist, we were all in favour of as much immigration as possible. It wasn’t because we liked immigrants, but because we didn’t like Britain. We saw immigrants – from anywhere – as allies against the staid, settled, conservative society that our country still was at the end of the Sixties. Also, we liked to feel oh, so superior to the bewildered people – usually in the poorest parts of Britain – who found their neighbourhoods suddenly transformed into supposedly ‘vibrant communities’. If they dared to express the mildest objections, we called them bigots.

Revolutionary students didn’t come from such ‘vibrant’ areas (we came, as far as I could tell, mostly from Surrey and the nicer parts of London). We might live in ‘vibrant’ places for a few (usually squalid) years, amid unmown lawns and overflowing dustbins.

But we did so as irresponsible, childless transients – not as homeowners, or as parents of school-age children, or as old people hoping for a bit of serenity at the ends of their lives. When we graduated and began to earn serious money, we generally headed for expensive London enclaves and became extremely choosy about where our children went to school, a choice we happily denied the urban poor, the ones we sneered at as ‘racists’.

What did we know, or care, of the great silent revolution which even then was beginning to transform the lives of the British poor? … I have learned since what a spiteful, self-righteous, snobbish and arrogant person I was (and most of my revolutionary comrades were, too). …

I have felt deeply, hopelessly sorry that I did and said nothing in defence of those whose lives were turned upside down, without their ever being asked, and who were warned very clearly that, if they complained, they would be despised outcasts. … The worst part of this is the deep, deep hypocrisy of it. Even back in my Trotskyist days I had begun to notice that many of the migrants from Asia were in fact not our allies. … Many of these new arrivals, though we revolutionaries welcomed them, knew and cared nothing of the great liberal causes we all supported. Or they were hostile to them. …

Of course, all political parties are compromises, but there is a big difference between splitting the difference and flatly ignoring a profound clash of principles. This sort of cynicism has been at the heart of the deal. Immigrants have been used by those who wanted to transform the country.”

  1. Det er lige sådan herhjemme.
    Venstrefløjen og andre stjerne-humanister forholdt sig aldrig
    til islam , men til de danskere, som protesterede.
    Så absurd et politisk galehus. Intet mindre.

  2. Engang havde DR-programmet “Kender du typen” inviteret sig hjem til Johanne Schmidt, hvor der selvfølgelig hang Superflex’ plakat ‘Foreigners, please don’t leave us alone with the Danes’.

    Der skal mere en almindelig dansker-had til for at rende rundt og reklamere med en sådan plakat. Sikken en nar.

    Det tragikomiske er, at når så virkeligheden og konsekvenserne går op for disse forkvaklede dansker-hadere, så skal de nok sikre sig privilegier til det stik modsatte – især for deres børn.

    Så i praksis realiserer de stiltiende: ‘Danes, please don’t leave me and my children alone with the foreigneres’

  3. traveler:

    Hvis du kigger i AFA-materiale fra 1990erne er de ret ærlige om, at indvandrerne skal til Danmark for at være allierede i kampen mod den onde højrefløj, og at en del af indvandrerne ville være uheldige elementer. Der var bare lidt usikkerhed om, om det skulle være en eller ti millioner indvandrere de havde brug for at skaffe ind i Danmark…

  4. I det mindste indrømmer han. Hvornår ser vi de røde i andre Europæiske lande gøre det samme?

  5. ‘Foreigners, please don’t leave us alone with the Danes’.

    Når man omtaler sig selv som ‘os’ på den måde, vil det sige, at man ikke betragter sig selv som dansk, men som noget bedre end dansk. Man er ikke udlænding og ikke dansk. Man er God.

    Forøvrigt tak til Peter Hitchens.

  6. Stærk tekst af Peter Hitchens:

    “What did we know, or care, of the great silent revolution which even then was beginning to transform the lives of the British poor? …”

    Tænker på juletræssagen fra Kokkedal. Hvad ragede det de radikale og EL, at de ældre danskere fik vendt op og ned på deres dagligdag.

    De vil redde hele verden, og så er deres egne landsmænds velfærd en lille pris at betale. Kyniske fantaster hele bundtet.

  7. Venstrefløjen har aldrig tilgivet arbejderklassen at den ikke begyndte en revolution men købte villa, Volvo og vovse istedet! Derfor blev projektet også at importere mennesker fra områder der havde accepteret socialismen, i det mindste nominelt, desuden ville disse mennesker også nedbryde Danmark, derefter kunne revolutionen komme.

    Det står nu klart for de fleste at de importerede mennesker heller ikke vil indføre socialisme, selv for socialisterne, tilbage står ønsket om at nedbryde samfundet, det er blevet målet nu når socialismen er uden for rækkevidde.

    At det før blot var første skridt er blevet glemt i kampen mod det bestående, ødelææggelsen er blevet målet i stedet for midlet.

    Så dybt er deres had mod Danmark og det bestående samfund.

  8. Hvor kommer galskaben fra? Universiteterne!
    Luk dem. Der kommer sgu ikke så meget visdom fra dem som fra en gammel husmand.

  9. Endnu en omvendt venstrefløjser på få dage. Hvis tempoet fortsætter, er der måske stadig håb…

  10. Alle Socialisterne i Danmark opfandt udviklingsbistanden og indvaderede nogle Lande som de betegnede fattige Lande,for at afskaffe fattigdom var man nødt til at indføre velfærdssamfundet til stor undren for de indfødte,men socialisterne ville med djævlens vold og magt vise at velfærdsmodellen var løsningen på fattigdom,de fratog de indfødte retten til at arbejde og istedet gav dem mange penge,det blev lederne i de underudviklede lande sure over og afkrævede penge altså korruption,det har de Danske skatteydere bidraget til 50 år,kan det ikke stoppes.

  11. Jeg kunne bedre lide hans bror.
    Gid vi kunne forbyde islam.

  12. Hold da helt kæft hvor har du ret Svend. Uddannelse er og bør være en privat sag.

    Why didn’t you do anything about it, stupid!
