Invaded via the back door, then a London Mayor and now a Home Secretary. Next a PM. WTF?

The OP says he’s a Muslim and a ‘closet M” based on nothing but the colour of his skin.

There’s a word for that

Surely the only thing of any relevance is whether or not someone is fit for office?

You would think that, in 2018, that would be the biggest concern about a British politician.

But no. The OP has to make up a “scary Muslim” story based on what the guy looks like.

Damn,

Please point out to me where the OP comes to the conclusion of Javid being muslim by the colour of his skin? Nowhere. In fact the OP says "it's got nothing to do with skin colour". Stop slinging the term racist about when there is no basis for it. It's what you read into it not the OPs.

The guy has said he’s not a Muslim and he was born in Britain.

Tell me, what else could he be basing his “he’s a Muslim” and “closet Muslim” on, if it’s not his skin colour?

My guess is because his parents moved here in the 60's from Pakistan where it is 95% + Muslim.
He also has an Islamic name, so it's not an unreasonable assumption in my opinion.

I don't care if the guy is or not, I'll judge him on his actions and how he votes in the House of Commons. I'll probably have a look at his house vote history later, that is more important to me.
I don't share the OP's sentiments, for the record.

And that doesn’t make him a xenophobe? (I’ll stop using the word racist because some people’s feelings seem super sensitive today)

Also, what makes you so sure it isn’t because of his skin colour? Because the OP said so?

Or it could be just as likely his skin colour. The whole line in the OP just reads like “I’m not racist but.....”

And you’re right. It shouldn’t be about who he is or what he looks like. It should’ve 100% about what he does/doesn’t do while in office.

You can only judge the OP on his specific posted words, and he is referring to Muslims. You are giving added value to his comments as an act of pure speculation. It deflects from the argument relating solely to his posted opinion.

Now pull him up on his obvious issues with Muslim's but don't invent other alleged traits of the OP if his words do not support such an accusation.
Regarding his specfic posted words, I think he is irrationally fearing Muslims taking over Britain, and I think his claims are ridiculous.
But...I will not accuse him of racism as his posted words do not assert anything about any particular race, just people who follow the Islamic faith. So instead of searching for a term to label him, how about argue his points?

I can't be arsed arguing with him myself, I think he's paranoid about nothing, but I'll defend him from the racist label because he's posted nothing racist.

Many people disagreed with Enoch Powell's warnings. But he wasn't far wrong with some the things he said would happen if we did not better protect our borders from immigrants.

Lets not talk about racism but what is actually happening to our Nation.

The number of (dare I say it!) Muslim immigrants (as have their families) has grown year on year for the last 60 years if not longer. Towns have literally been taken over, mosques have shot up everywhere, integration has been practically non-existent, root out the bad of their own has been very poor, almost to the extent the bad are hidden and protected!

We ended up with a Muslim London Mayor who avoid calling a spade a spade because the terrorists are Islamic and now we (can you believe it?) a Muslim Home Secretary responsible for Immigration and protecting our borders!!


Sajid Javid announced as new home secretary after Amber Rudd's resignation
www.msn.com...


The UK is now f..ked and will soon be run by Muslims full stop. What a coup!!! Stupid UK Governments have brought us to this!

Sad Sad Days. Foreigners in our own country!

My Armour is on!



The government isn't stupid, they are doing exactly what they are told to do by their handlers, which are not the people that voted for them. A more accurate description would be traitors. Kick the tires, light the fires and get your s**t in gear, it's going to be a bumpy ride.

That’s exactly what the OP has done though. Even to the point of calling him a “closet M”.

His points have already been smashed to tiny bits. He’s British born and has stated he isn’t a Muslim. But that wasn’t good enough for some, including the OP. He’s a “closet M” or he’s “lying” as it’s “what Muslims do”.

You’re really just playing semantics; fearing “x” taking over country “y” is patently xenophobia/bigotry both of which are often short-handed as “racism.” Is the OP expressing racist sentiments, technically no. Is what he’s expressed any different in their basic contexts? No.

tl;dr whether your bogeyman is race/religion/ethnicity you’re still a terrible person.

Agreed, the OP clearly has issues with people who follow the Islamic faith. I think his fears are ridiculous, but as Islam is an ideology, if the OP has his tin-foil hat on then I see the idea of his 'conspiracy' theory.
I don't agree of course, but I cannot call him racist from what he posted in the OP. Irrational fear of Muslim takeover clearly exists. It is up to the rest of us to try educate such folk through our reasoned argument.

Let me ask you something, if I may be so bold?

If you see two darker skinned people walking down the street, how do you know which religion they may (or may not) practice?

Exactly how can you tell their status wrt citizen or non-citizen?

And how are you determining where any given person was actually born?

I'm new here. So I don't mind waiting for your no doubt enlightening response.
Be enlightened newcomer numpty, I don't!

But he's not Pakistani. He was born in the UK. He has also stated that he doesn't follow any religion.

So like I asked, what, other than his name, would suggest that he's a practicing Muslim?
You don't have to practice screwing your wife to be hetro!

By that same logic you could be a Muslim and not even know it. Why then should we trust you?

Well, an article from the Gaurdian saying he is Muslim doesn’t help.

Who is Savid Javid




Born in Rochdale in 1969, like the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, he is a Muslim son of a bus driver who has risen to the top of British politics.


Or the article from the BBC,

Who is Savid Javid



Their four children are privately educated: "We do what's best for them," Mr Javid, who has described himself as a non-practising Muslim, told the newspaper.


They must be racist.
They always blame it on being racist. A cop out. Its BS
