Why usually tolerant British people like myself are becoming more intolerant and xenophobic!

I'd say that letting the actions of a few dictate your opinions of the whole is listening to propaganda. I refuse to let anyone try to tell me that most or all muslims are secretly terrorists. They may have different cultures which have values that I don't agree with, but that doesn't mean they are inherently bad people. They have good people and bad people and letting images like you just described dictate your opinion of the whole is listening to propaganda. That's really the only way that bigotry spreads.

Example: You brought up Muslims "no-go" zones. That is just a buzzphrase invented by the media to call a ghetto a bigoted name. Surprise! Ghettos tend to be intolerant of outsiders. Being Muslim has nothing to do with it. Since these refugees have little to no money, OBVIOUSLY they'll construct and live in ghettos. Calling them a "no-go" zone just shows intolerance. How many ghettos of black people do you go into? White people? Chinese people?

You know, you could always try to be the better person and stand ABOVE the hate? All hating the intolerant Muslims in return does is just perpetuate the cycle of hate and bigotry never dies. Even entertaining the idea that Islamophobia doesn't exist is bigoted. Just stop. You say you are a loving person, well act it. Stop letting hate from the few influence your opinions of the whole. Always remember, it's always the worst of the worst that are the loudest.

a reply to: uncommittedI have never at any point in my post said that muslims are all non-whites. It is you who has made an assumption there.



If it was my mistake, it was an easy one to make when you said white people are already in the minority in Coventry (why that should mean anything is a question you should be thinking about), and your very next line was around how muslims will be running the country - if you really think I shouldn't have drawn the conclusion I did then I guess that's more down to how you express yourself than anything else.

The point with the flag is that in and of itself, there is nothing illegal in flying it, but whether you like it or not it has been tainted by extremist white groups in England. I don't like that any more than you do, but in some areas it's seen as a symbol of isolationsim whether we like it or not. America don't forget recently had similar issues with the confederate flag being subverted in a similar manner.

HA! We really have NAZI no-go areas! Not muslim no-go areas.. Search for "national befreite zone" in Google..
And don't believe the MSM, the refugees are usually spread out as fast as possible to deny the possible ghetto-build-up.

a reply to: uncommittedI didn't write that!!! If you look at what I wrote you will see that on my first post I said what had made me start this post was because I had SEEN this comment in the Independent "SwordOfIslam

We've got our flag ready for 10 Downing Street. When we prevail, you white chicken-sh*ts - who are so brave on a faceless website - will find out how sharp my sword is. Your children and grandchildren will be Muslims". I then went on to say on my second post that I had also seen this comment by the same person:

SwordOfIslam

Muslims - get used to us
.
White people are already a minority in Coventry. In the long run you will be a minority in the UK.

Muslims will run this country and your children and grandchildren will be raised as Muslims (God Willing)

Obey us and we will show you mercy. Otherwise my sword will fall on your white neck."

These comments have obviously been written by someone who follows Islam and who isn't white!!! So it would appear it is he who is making the assumption that true muslims aren't white. You do owe me an apology me thinks!!!!

Sometimes people don't need to experience much in order for their underlying racism to spill out.

I got to the part about moving back to manchester and burkas, to see your viewpoint. There are some for sure but I seriously wouldn't raise that as an issue to defend your stance. Sure there are a few out of hundreds and hundreds walking around. Maybe you're only seeing the back of old ladies wearing headscarves,.

Lets not even go down how we Brits integrate into other cultures when we emigrate, I suppose those ex pat communities are a myth.

I do agree we have an immigration problem in terms of the numbers, not just here but more widely felt in southern europe. Does the blame lie with those seeking refuge or does the West hold some responsibility for our action and inactions?

This is a comment without reading the other replies.

I have been saying that fit men should not be allowed
to immigrate with the women, children, and elderly.

They need to stay and defend their homeland
and their homes from ISIS. That is their duty
and they have run from their duty and are
cowards.

No fit man should be allowed to immigrate period,
from a war torn nation, he should be defending
his home, his people and his land, not running
like a dog with it's tail tucked between its legs.

It's so interesting to me that PCness is so ingrained and pervasive that a concerned citizen like this OP cannot even politely and almost apologetically object to the situation on reasonable terms without being called racist or a hater. When you control speech or dialogue, you control the situation. It's positively Orwellian.

Hey look, Australia and the US turned out great. I bet the Aborigines and the Red Indians said the same thing that you just wrote.

Just recently a Christian mentioned to me that the same folks berating and "hating" on Christianity and Christians, will about face, and defend Islam and Muslims. Not that I haven't seen or heard that comment before. But I usually pass it off as deflection. This is the first time I've actually seen what that Christian said in action. I owe that person an apology. You know who you are.

So you'll agree that you are racist I guess ?



From the descriptions of what is happening in her town,
and the things she has experienced.
I'd say she is a realist.

Calling her a racist when she has seen people
threatened for their lives (the shopkeeper)
and other real incidents
is a ploy to force her to deny reality and
to be subservient to the politically correct -
ie to force her to shut up because the truth
is politically incorrect.

by letting only elders, women and children in, you guarantee that the persons who need help the most will be looked after and also you minimize the risk of terrorists seeping into europe.

No speech is controlled, lets say a persons voices his opinion against muslims, then another person, who BTW has the same freedom calls him racist. So wheres the controlled speech here?

That is a bunch of politically correct garbage.

I do not see in wartime a man refusing to defend
his homeland as a human right.
It is cowardly, and behaving like a dog running
with its tail between its legs.

If that were the case during WWII when most
men left there families to fight Hitler
they would not have left and
Hitler would be in power.
Sorry and politically correct excuse for
cowardly behavior.

These fit men who refuse to fight are behaving
like pigs feeding at the trough of plenty, while
the real men who stay and fight are led to the
slaughter because of the cowards.
