Sometimes it's tough being British. Our skies are perpetually cloudy, Our food is bland and ultimately as people we don't tend to get on with each other. You only have to look at our recent General Election and the electoral dominance of the misleadingly socialist Scottish National Party to see that.
But it is never more so frustrating (at least for me) when following the recent American election campaigns. Knowing that the victor of the election will essentially be elected leader of the free world. This rankles quite hard because at one time that was our gig.
The British Empire
The British Empire was at one time the envy of the world. Stretching from east to west. Settling, educating and above all else civilising savage nations as we conquered. Liberals would have you believe that The Empire was this pillaging, looting monster that ruined Africa and India and that we should be ashamed of even remembering it. Far from it, we were a strong and virtuous force. Britain took its obligations seriously. It did not try to extinguish the cultures of other nations, but rather try to cement them in a framework of fairness. The only cultural impact we imposed was simple principles and morals. We were an empire of gentlemen who wanted to bring the world together in the spirit of “fair play,” and what's more, we were generally well liked by our subjects who reaped the benefits of British trade and education.
Along the way, we abolished slavery in 1807, and shortly before, we defeated one of the greatest military geniuses, Napoleon Bonaparte, in a war of ideology (and violence) that cemented us as a dominant European superpower. Or it would have, had we not been so predictably British about the whole thing and politely returned a good chunk of the conquered colonies to France and Holland. For the full story on that, I strongly recommend schoolteacher Lawrence James' Rise and Fall of the British Empire. It's not exactly redpilled, but it gives a good insight on the strangely sportsmanlike British imperial attitude to war and conquest.
Between 1815 to 1914 in a period referred to as Britain's "imperial century,” our empire peaked at around 10,000,000 square miles (26,000,000 km2) of territory, and roughly 400 million people were added to the British Empire.
The Empire decolonized between 1945 and 1997, as the big mistake that was the Second World War had taken a huge toll on us and left the nation essentially bankrupt, meaning the British Empire's days were numbered. Britain adopted a policy of peaceful disengagement from its colonies once stable, non-Communist governments were available to transfer power to.
I bring this up because it is the shadow and misinterpretation of the British Empire's history that has seen us become the international joke we are today, as liberal fed, Jew-backed post imperial guilt has allowed large numbers of immigrants, both legal and illegal into the UK to drastically rise under the pretence of us owing a better life to our former “oppressed” colonial citizens.
What's the Crisis?
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has revealed that net migration to the UK last year was 318,000 – up from 209,000 in 2013 and close to the all-time high of 320,000 in 2005. The UK population in mid 2010 was 62.3 million (the highest growth rate since mid 1962) and has increased to 64.6million in five years of which:
The population of England was 57.4m
The population of Scotland was 5.3m
The population of Wales was 3.0m
The population of Northern Ireland was 1.8m
In the grand scheme of things we are a relatively small landmass of only 209,331 km2 (or 80,823 square miles), so as you can imagine, we've got some sustainability problems. Unemployment, while lowering under the “Conservative” party after nearly a decade of mismanagement by Tony Blair and Peter “I'm not really a kike, honest” Mandelson's “New” Labour is still rampant and then there’s the Muslims. So many Muslims. In fact we're on the verge of a bit of a historic crisis. With Muslim birthrates as much as 10 times that of the native British population, estimates are that by as soon as 2050 the UK will see Muslims as over 50% of the population.
Where did it all begin?
We can trace small elements of Islam in Britain as far back as 1389 in Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales in which he references Muslim Scholars. The first recorded Englishman to become a Muslim was John Nelson, who converted to Islam at some point in the 16th Century. However, the first major influx was from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh with workers emigrating to British port towns at the behest of the East India Company. For context, the EIC was founded in 1600 as The Company of Merchants of London for trading into the East Indies and was eventually granted governance over the Indian subcontinent in 1757, after the Battle of Plassey when the Nawab of Bengal surrendered his dominions to the company. “The Company” as it was well known as at the time rose to power on a base of military expansion and opium trade and regularly abused its position as Britain's representative in the east. This is where a lot of the baseless animosity against the Empire stems from. The founders' names have been lost to time, but I would be incredibly surprised if a fair few of their voices didn't echo. Their power was stripped by the Government of India Act in 1858.
The next wave of Muslim immigration to Britain followed the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869 and rose dramatically throughout the industrial revolution as the demand for cheap labour from India and Pakistan was high. It is unsurprising to learn that a good number of the incoming workers were illegal stowaways on merchant vessels. Modern Britain's so called “British” Muslims are largely descendants of these workers.
Modern influx over the last decade has tended to be
Mandelstein Mandelson-backed cheap labour refugees from war-torn countries, most notably Iraq, which Britain actually founded as a nation in 1920, taking an interest in exploring, surveying, spying and trading in Mesopotamia as well as navigating its rivers. We are, after all, natural sailors, what with us being Islanders.
Iraq briefly fell to Turkish Ottoman invaders in 1914 but was successfully reinforced and recaptured in the same year. By the end of World War I, British forces were in control of the three provinces (Baghdad, Basra and Mosul), and the British administration in Baghdad had to decide what to do with Iraq. The Arabs insisted that they had been promised independence, and in response in an act of sophisticated trolling Iraq was made a British mandate, carved out of the three former Ottoman provinces.
This obviously didn't go down well with the locals. they saw it as a charade, and in 1920 a revolt began. Things were so bad that at one point, General Sir Aylmer Haldan preempted Hitler's supposed actions by twenty odd years and called for a large supply of poisonous gas. General Sir Aylmer Haldan did nothing wrong.
Eventually the situation settled and King Falsal was handed the poison chalice of governing the three provinces and their Kurdish/Shia citizens. Indeed they eventually revolted and dethroned his son, Falsal II.
In 1979, Saddam Hussei, seized power in Iraq in the name of the Arab nationalist Ba'ath Party, leading eventually to the two Gulf Wars. This in turn created refugees, most of whom turned to France and Britain for safety.
Why is integration impossible?
By nature and by doctrine, Muslims are two faced tricksters and will sell out a non Muslim at the drop of a burkha. They consider non Muslims as unclean, and anyone who rejects Islam is Kafir or Infidel. In general, Muslims believe that a Kafir person is impure and untrustworthy. They do not identify as British citizens and will impose their values and culture onto any area they occupy. You only need to look at areas such as Luton's Bury Park which my own father (who grew up in the area pre-Islamisation) has on occasion compared to Karachi. It is adorned with Muslim tailors and markets and is unrecognisable as the British brickworks and hatter town it once was. While definitely the largest, Luton isn't the only area with towns and cities such as Bradford, Rotherham, Birmingham, Leicester and even the capital London having some of the largest growing Muslim communities in Europe. Cultural friction is mounting and riots have become more frequent, especially with a large number of Muslims self identifying, sympathising and siding with the Middle East in recent conflicts. Some even going so far as to join the Taliban in Afghanistan and actively fight against their country of residence.
Muslims have a concept known as Taqiya, which allows them to lie their way out of trouble with non believers and have regularly betrayed their non Muslim neighbours in their homelands. It is perhaps this that causes them to exploit our already stretched benefits system. There are some 600,000 Muslims living here illegally with our government, be it Labour or Cuckservative, bending over backwards to help them at our taxpayer's expense.
Some of the worst examples of Muslims exploiting the system include:
A single mother of six renting a mansion at the taxpayers expense.
The Iraqi who illegally claimed £35,000 in benefits and claimed he “was doing nothing wrong under Islamic law.”
The terror suspect and hate preacher that demanded an upgrade to his £400,000 home.
Qatada isn't the only Muslim cleric to demand benefits. Luton based cleric and former drunken student Anjem Choudary has also called for Muslims to claim benefits for jihad.
Clearly this highlights a fundamental incompatibility between Islam and the West. Islamic or “Sharia” law has been creeping into our system with at least 85 Islamic Sharia courts now operating in Britain. This shows that Muslims see themselves as above the law of the land they occupy and are only answerable to their own beliefs. There are forced marriages taking place in our country and overseas as a means of gaining entry to the UK. This is the practice where some young British girls are bullied and threatened into marrying someone they don't want, and honour killings, including that of a young white woman, and sickening acid attacks are becoming more and more commonplace.
WE LET THIS HAPPEN
So we get to the million pound question. How are they allowed to get away with it? Well the biggest reason people don't speak up much about it is because they don't want to go to prison. British hate speech law is defined as
“[...] threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour, or displays any written material which is threatening, abusive or insulting, is guilty of an offence if—
(a) he intends thereby to stir up racial hatred, or (b) having regard to all the circumstances racial hatred is likely to be stirred up thereby.”
This carries a maximum sentence of seven years, a fine or both, and our government does EVERYTHING it can to enforce it at the expense of their own citizens.
Are you a simple, uneloquent non-league footballer, infuriated and emotional at the murder of a British soldier? Go to jail.
Are you a political party leader questioning some of Islam's darker aspects? Go to jail.
Is your daughter being groomed and brutally gang raped? Go directly to jail, do not pass go, do not collect £200, you intolerant shitlord.
This is the reality of Britain. Unlike America, we have no constitution to protect us and freedom of speech is but a myth. We are simply not allowed to question Islam lest we suffer social ostracism and potential incarceration. But until we do, It will only get worse. There will be more terror attacks, more honour killings and many more Rotherhams unless Britain puts aside the politeness and starts addressing the issue. But even with the headway made by UKIP the Overton Window has shifted too far left, and our so called “conservative” government have moved with it to protect themselves. By the time it shifts back, I fear it will be too late.
