"So two Jewish brothers were front-runners in the Labour leadership contest and one got chosen. He could one day be PM. Talented and ambitious British Jews have risen to the top in every institution, and deservedly...And yet, within Alibhai-Brown's typically snarling anti-British piece, she admits this:
Society is more equal and fair than ever before. But only fools and blackguards would claim Jewish people, gays and women have no cause to complain and if they do must be disbelieved, dismissed, assailed, tossed out of polite society to join others who are accursed and unwelcome. Yet that is now what happens if you are unquiet on racism, the abhorrent demeaning of people on grounds of colour, culture, ethnicity and religion. To bring up racial prejudice is now more scandalous than vomiting in a fine room...
In the latest issue of Prospect magazine, Munira Mirza, one of Boris Johnson's favoured libertarians at the Greater London Authority, announces the death of racism. It is no more – she has met black and Asian people who tell her so. No credible statistical evidence is provided, in part because this serious research is not now a priority. And besides, she is herself Asian and of Muslim background (though not a believer) and she should know.
A pretty little thing but with a sharp beak (sexist, I know, but then sexism is no longer an issue, or is it? ), she presses all the right buttons for white people. There is always a useful supply of insiders happy to decry the struggles of the persecuted and ostracised. Her boss, Johnson, is not racist but has always been hostile to recommendations in the Stephen Lawrence report findings. Johnson put down the annual anti-racist festival, blaming lack of sponsorship, and he and Mirza seem now to be on a mission to exterminate talk about racism.
Funds for Black History Month – which wouldn't be needed if UK history was not whitewashed – have been slashed, they say for cost reasons
Across the board, the powerful appear now to be entirely focused on the white working and workless classes...
I will readily agree racism is not the only force that keeps us down and out. But that evil is still out there taking away our rights and humanity. Like Jewish people, gays and women, we know when things change for the better, they can also stay the same or get worse.
Ms Mirza et al must give us convincing proof that racism is no more and white people are the new victims... Until that time, activists will neither stop nor sell out, even though the rewards for that would be plentiful." The forces of hate are still with us
"BLACK AND ASIAN BRITONS CAN BE SELF-DESTRUCTIVE, VIOLENT AND PREJUDICED TOWARDS WHITE PEOPLE, EXPLOITERS, TOO, LIKE THOSE MUSLIM PIMPS GROOMING YOUNG WHITE GIRLS. MANY ARE SEDUCED BY GANG CULTURE AND TERRORISM, ARE HOPELESS LOVERS AND PARENTS, OPPRESSIVE AND NASTY AND UNABLE TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY."And the British people are 'racist' because they never wished to live alongside creatures like these?
They are 'racist', according to fanatical Brit-loathing immigrants like Yasmin, because they never wanted 'violent and prejudiced' outsiders sharing their neighbourhoods? They are 'racist' because they never wanted 'Muslim pimps grooming' their daughters? They are 'racist' because they knew such people might be 'seduced by gang culture and terrorism'? They are 'racist' because they knew that many of them would be 'oppressive and nasty and unable to take responsibility.'
Here’s another reason they might be 'racist' Yasmin. During the 4 June 2006 edition of Dateline London, Gavin Essler posed this question:
"What's wrong with white guys, by the way?"To which a Ugandan-Asian immigrant replied:
"I don't like them. I WANT THEM TO BE THE LOST SPECIES IN 100 YEARS."Now that, Ms Alibhai-Brown, is racism! In fact, 'racism' doesn’t begin to describe what you said back there in June 2006, does it? What word, I wonder, might begin to sum up the feelings you expressed towards us white folk upon that occasion? What word adequately depicts a hatred so fundamental that it would see a whole race disappeared in '100 years'? Would 'genocide' do it?
Alibhai-Brown has never been interviewed by the police, reprimanded by the BBC or even taken to task by her fellow journalists for wishing the white race gone. However, in 2001, she was awarded an MBE 'for services to journalism'.
On 23 September 2010, The Daily Mail quoted Munira Mirza as saying that teachers were being made to spy on nursery age youngsters by the Race Relations Act 2000.
"TEACHERS ARE NOW REQUIRED TO REPORT INCIDENTS OF RACIST ABUSE AMONG CHILDREN AS YOUNG AS THREE to local authorities, resulting in a massive increase of cases and REINFORCING THE PERCEPTION THAT WE NEED AN ARMY OF EXPERTS TO MANAGE RACE RELATIONS FROM CRADLE TO GRAVE.'A climate of suspicion and anxiety', is just what the Alibhai-Browns always wanted, Munira. Writing in Prospect Magazine, Ms Mirza also said this:
Does this heightened awareness of racism help to stamp it out? QUITE THE OPPOSITE. IT CREATES A CLIMATE OF SUSPICION AND ANXIETY."
"The Act COMPELLED 43,000 public authorities, including schools and churches, ‘to promote good relations between persons of different racial groups… Teachers are allowed to report racism EVEN IF THE ALLEGED ‘VICTIM’ WAS NOT OFFENDED OR IF THE CHILD DOES NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY WERE SAYING.That WAS New Labour.
Freedom of Information replies obtained by civil liberties group the Manifesto Club show that BETWEEN 2002 AND 2009, 280,000 INCIDENTS HAVE BEEN REPORTED."
That WAS the kind of anti-British 'racism' that an institutionalised Brit-loather like Alibhai-Brown might well applaud. Let's hope that particularly virulent brand of political correctness is dead. As one of the 'two Jewish brothers' Alibhai-Brown cites said after winning the Labour leadership election: 'The era of New Labour has passed'.
Of course, politicians do tend to SAY one thing and DO another. And ED, they say, is very RED. As was his Marxist dad. And he did write New Labour's 2010 election Manifesto. And he was Gordon Brown's golden boy from way back. So it's probably all balls.
Alibhai-Brown will, undoubtedly, be hoping so.
