The Dam of Cultural Marxist-inspired Fear is beginning to Crumble
The dam of Cultural Marxist wishful thinking and fear-inspired blindness appears to be giving way under the weight of reality. All of a sudden, discussions of all sorts of issues that were once only raised in a few rather obscure publications and on sites like this one, have surfaced in the MSM.
Protests about Mass Immigration in the MSM
Following reports about the Census revelations on the dizzying virtual overnight rise in the population of this country as result of mass immigration, letters and editorials have appeared in the Press, notably the Daily Mail and the Daily Telegraph, telling personal stories of how this self-inflicted disaster has impacted negatively on the lives of native British people and allocating blame.
Frank Remarks about IQ and Sex / Race Differences in the Daily Telegraph
And the phenomenon is not restricted to immigration either. The Daily Telegraph even printed an article by Michael Hanlon (17th July) on the argument by James Flynn (He of the Flynn effect) in his latest book that women are more intelligent than men and even raised the question of differences in ability between racial groups. Hanlon states, accurately:
‘The merest suggestion that there might be hard-wired disparities in intelligence causes the most terrible wailing and gnashing of teeth, even though such physical and mental variations – dictated by genes and environments – are exactly what you would expect in an abundant species that has adapted to just about every corner of the globe’. But ‘That taboo however may be breaking down.’
Some may be thinking that had the latest research shown that men were (as previously thought) more intelligent than women, cultural marxism would have seen to it that little or no attention was given to it, as it has on research results that have shown the reverse and that some races have lower IQs on average than others.
The Issue of Race and Sex Differences must be Raised Because…
However, Hanlon tells us that these matters should be raised because, ‘in an increasingly knowledge–driven world, we need to understand these differences if for no other reason than to help raise everyone to their potential.’ Whist correct, this ignores the most pressing reasons for exploring sex and race differences in ability and inclinations which are:
1) Importing alien races leads seemingly inevitably to racially determined socio-economic hierarchies in which typically Jews, East Asians and Whites are at the top followed by South Asians, with Blacks at the bottom. Mixed race individuals come somewhere in between according on average to their racial make-up. The racial dimension added to class exacerbates class feeling and is almost guaranteed to cause extreme social stresses.
2) The assumption that the sexes and races are identical in terms of ability and inclination leads to an ideology of oppression amongst left - and liberal-inclined people, ie that the racially-determined socio-economic hierarchy and the differing roles to which the two sexes find themselves drawn are the results not of differing abilities and inclinations but exclusively of ‘oppression’. The resulting attempts to bring about equality of outcomes, eg racial proportionality in employment, is in fact genuine oppression of the able who are robbed of their just rewards.
Simon Heffer’s Glowing Appraisal of Enoch Powell
Heffer was asked by Powell to write his biography, and in his ‘Like the Roman’ he has given Powell the epitaph he deserved. He also written several articles for the MSM such as ‘When will the Tories admit that Powell was right?’ and most recently, in the Daily Mail 13th June, ‘A prophet yet an outcast: 100 years after his birth Enoch Powell has been vindicated on a host of crucial issues’.
Your writer is proud to have been able to attend Powell’s funeral in St Margaret’s, Westminster.
Why the Sudden Interest in Non-PC Subjects?
Now all these issues have been discussed at length if not ad nauseam on this site, elsewhere in the blogosphere and in specialised journals such as ‘The Occidental Quarterly’. Those engaging in these debates, even when they have done it on a reasoned and sensible level, have invariably been described as ‘Racists’, ‘Haters’, ‘Fascists and even ‘Nazis’, often by these same media outlets which have, too belatedly, now dived into this discussion themselves. So what has brought on this rather sudden conversion to facing the facts?
The Stinking Hypocrisy of Middle Class ‘Liberals’
Well, one hopes that the efforts of this site, which is no doubt read by some elements of the MSM has had something to do with it, but one other good reason is the dire economic circumstances of the country. At one time, it was only the despised white working class which felt the brunt of mass immigration. It was they who saw public housing that they or their children might have occupied going to foreigners. It was they who had to live in burgeoning immigrant areas to the extent that they felt they were living in a foreign country.
It was they who were pushed to the back of the queue when it came to such things as healthcare. It was their schoolchildren who were a tiny minority in classes filled with moslems or blacks. It was they who found themselves undercut by workers from abroad who were prepared to work for a pittance.
But times have changed. Where the middle classes enjoyed well-paid jobs, cheap plumbers, builders, nannies, hairdressers, restaurants and so forth (‘The benefits of globalisation’), now they too are feeling the pinch as they are squeezed during this ‘Great Recession’. They are beginning to find private school fees and private medical care unaffordable and are having to resort to state provision. They are going to restaurants and places of entertainment less often than they did.
As immigrant numbers swell, they are finding their leafy suburbs and villages being built up and invaded by the newcomers who they are discovering may not be as picturesque seen in close-up as they are from a restaurant table or from the seat of a car travelling though some ‘vibrant’ multicultural, multiracial area.
They are finding that they and their children are in competition for jobs with immigrants in the higher–level positions that they would have expected to fill. Migration Watch found that the number of non-EU graduates who, having completed their studies here were given permission to stay and take up jobs increased from 870 in 2004 to 40,000 last year
We are all ‘Nazis’ now!!!
So when it was only the white working class who suffered economically and socially as a result of mass immigration, to raise the issue of mass immigration was to be a knuckle–dragging thug, a nazi BNP-er, etc etc. But now the middle classes are also beginning to suffer, why it is only reasonable and must be acceptable!!!! The hypocrisy of it makes one sick.
It is easy to be ‘liberal’, caring, interested in equality and so on and so on - when one can afford it &/or when someone else is bearing the brunt. That is what socialism was invented for. But when it is you who must suffer as a result, things suddenly start looking very different. When times are hard, so-called individualistic liberals suddenly rediscover the virtues of solidarity with others. And those others are who they always have been in times of trouble – their own people. Who else can they rely on?
Britain is moving to the right, and not before time
