I am not ashamed to be British just because some ignorant little racists voted UKIP to legitimise their bigotry and prejudice; that infantile and utterly pathetic vote by the racists of Britain is not what makes being British shameful. What makes being British ‘shameful’ goes much deeper than the outcome of a vote in the European Elections for some Lying, Thieving, Hypocrites, who claim that they hate the EU and want to leave it; but then stand for Election in the very assembly they so loathe. That vote is just the symptom of a greater evil.
No that is not what is shameful about being British. What is shameful is the ignominy visited upon this nation over decades by the covert fascists of Neo-Liberalism. They have placed upon our children’s shoulders, a stain so great on the dignity of this land that it almost wipes away the honour we gained as a people during our finest hour, as we stood alone against the Fascist Regime of The Greater German Reich in 1940.
What is shameful is that for nigh on 40 years the Far Right have waged a constant war upon our collective morality, our education systems, and our communities. They have wrecked a devastation so immense upon our society over these last 40 years that now, here in 2014, we few, we happy few, we band of brothers; ‘this merry England’ - has fallen at last into the morass that is Fascism and become that which our forefathers fought so bravely against during our darkest days.
That we now have people – 4.5 million of them – who believe that voting for a racist fascist scumbag like Nigel Farage is a legitimate choice, is the inevitable outcome of an Agenda set down by the Likes of Margaret Thatcher, Kissinger, Nixon, Friedman, to bring the world into line with a doctrine of Totalitarian Corporatism first envisioned in 1969.
The 60’s terrified the Fascists far more than World War 2 ever did. It was the closest we humans ever got to ‘The People’ having ‘The Power’ to change the world, and eradicate the despotism of the Super Elite [who had also funded Hitler] once and for all time. Nixon coined the term ‘Conspiracy Theory’ in order to confuse the minds of the voters and make them believe that people who challenged those in power were crazy, nutters, deluded, fools; and it worked... eventually.
These days if anybody tells you that “the orthodoxy of tri-party representations is the problem not the solution” they are vilified. The only acceptable fourth party has become one which mirrors and then magnifies the criminality of the already established Neo-Liberal mainstream parties. People blindly vote for the very people who have vowed to destroy the things our forefathers fought to protect and build, such as the NHS, the Welfare State, Decency, Equality, Freedom of Speech.
Thus do the super rich, The Super Elite [who own all the media] - propagandise the masses with endless tales of fear and dread about ‘The other’ in an effort to stabilize their failing system of Global Domination. Television Programs do exactly what they say on the tin – ‘They Program You’. And by the by, it was The Nazi’s of Germany who first grasped the power of propaganda through the newsreel, [something Lord Haw Haw was punished for by the Allies at the cessation of World War 2].
No the shame about being British is not the outcome for one vote result in a European Election, the shame is that we as a people have fallen so low. That somehow people have, over 40 years, been so bombarded with a Right Wing agenda and so dumbed down by those who rule us, that they now willingly vote for a man whose Agenda is ‘Hate the Other’ and who proposes to bring a deeper ruin upon the heads of his followers as he enriches his clandestine [and not so covert] – backers by privatising absolutely everything our parents built.
That is what is shameful about being ‘British’.
As to those septic souls who voted to legitimise their racism... I name them ‘Collaborators’ and will spare them no further pity...
