Anyway, contrary to the belief of Parallex
and others, it is indeed possible to want to stop the spread of Islam in the UK without being a
racist or a bigot. There are far too many people who will ignore the facts because they don't want to be seen as politically incorrect. I'm not
saying we should all go back to the late '70s and appreciate Bernard Manning, but when something is causing an undeniable problem then it should be
discussed as openly and as frankly as is necessary.
Let's pose a hypothetical similar situation...let's say, for example, an extreme Christian religious cult (something like the Branch Davidians)
starts to build up a large following across the country. Then gradually more and more members of this cult come to Britain to be with their fellow
'worshippers', but they have no money because they spent it all on getting to the UK so they have to get money from the UK government so that they
can eat and pay rent. Many of the followers take advantage of their new country's social security system and make false claims worth thousands, and
eventually use the money to bring their families (who also happen to be cult members) to the UK (who then claim even more social security benefits).
Eventually this now rather large cult decides it wants specially designated areas that are specifically for cult members only, with all others to be
excluded. Soon the cult gets its followers to start a campaign for their system of law to become the law of the UK. Then some extremist followers of
the cult commit terrorist atrocities, killing a lot of innocent people, after which the leaders of the cult publicly praise the attackers rather than
condemn them etc. etc. etc...
You see what I'm getting at here?
What would your reaction be in that situation? Would you just accept it because you wouldn't want to be considered a bigot? Or would you realise that
the 'cult' is a dangerous entity that could potentially damage the very fabric of British society and possibly have a negative impact upon your OWN
quality of life?
I know that some people say things like "You're all being played by TPTB and borders mean nothing we are all children of the Earth" etc. but with
all due respect that is just idealist hippie nonsense. You can't seriously expect people to 'be cool' with all of this stuff, not when those who
have worked and paid taxes to the state their whole adult lives are refused quality housing and state benefit (i.e community care grants/social fund
loans) while people who have been here five minutes are given it all freely? That grates with people, especially during these hard economic times, and
when you have a government in place who because of their desperation to be P.C refuse to see the problem or the effect it is having on the voters
mentality it just riles people even more. It's no wonder there has been a rise in support for the BNP and their ilk. I'm sure there are many people
who would vote for the blanket racism & bigoted hatred of the BNP just because they want something done about the ever-growing number of MUSLIM
immigrants, and they don't feel the Tories have the guts to do something about it anymore due to Blair-wannabe David Cameron and his
politically-correct-environmentally-friendly-we're-not-Thatcherite-anymore-honest brand of new Conservatism.
Don't even get me started on the Lib-Dems.
Most people in the UK don't have a problem with immigrants of other faiths and races, because even though they might build temples and shops and even
'ghettoize' themselves they don't expect to be favoured over any other group. Islam, which seems determined to spread it's influence and control
over as much of the world as possible by the back door, wants it all and wants it now.
That is a big worry for a lot of people.
There is something very wrong when a born-and-bred citizen can't visit certain areas because of the threat of violence by people who have just got
here. That sounds a bit like Nazi-occupied Europe to me.
Exaggeration? Maybe, but there is a certain similarity in that situation that cannot be denied.
I'm not at all a "Britain for the British" type of guy. I have no problem with people coming here if they can add something to the community, but
I've yet to see what the large increase in Muslim immigrants to the UK have added except controversy, violence and fear.
These EDL imbeciles are just capitalising on the current tensions in the area, but it should never have gotten to this stage. This is the fault of the
government for giving the go-ahead despite the local authority and population's wishes. I always thought the Tories were top of the "ignore the
wishes of the plebs" league but Labour are really catching up with them...
