It's time we recognised that it is the state's own
extreme racial ideology of enforced "colourblindness", of "race doesn't
matter", except to "racists", which is responsible for the madness of mass
immigration into our already, natively and unsustainably, overpopulated
subcontinent and for creating a multiethnic society and melting pot which
the vast majority of people, if they were honest about it, did not and
still do not want, not least because they do not identify with it as THEIR
own nation. In truth, such a society is not a nation at all (not if you
accept the OED definition of the word*), but rather, an ENVIRONMENT, which
the state, ever since its inception back in the Middle Ages, facilitates the
exploitation of to the advantage of its dominant elites, to which those in
politics and the media, of course, belong.
What is the source of this extreme "ideology of
colourblindness", of indifference to ethnic difference, when ethnicity has
been shown to be the first thing, next to gender, most people notice about a
stranger; of "race doesn't matter", i.e. is of no social or political
significance, except to evil "racists", when of course it matters,
to anyone wanting a deep and meaningful sense of personal and group identity,
i.e. a deep, genuine and committed sense of national identity, as opposed to
the superficial and mercenary citizenship and identity offered by the British "state".
This ideology of "colourblindness", I suggest, was
initially an understandable overreaction to the horrors of Nazi racial
ideology, which effectively it is the exact, but equally extreme, opposite of.
Because the Nazis attributed inhumane and hateful meanings to race and
ethnicity, the immediate response was to insist that race and ethnicity should
have no meaning (certainly no social or political importance) at all.
Which is complete nonsense, contradicting healthy human nature, which is as
much tribal as it is social. And what are race and ethnicity a striking
indication of, if not of one's tribe and nation . . ?!
But instead of acknowledging the social and political
importance of race and ethnicity, the moral high ground was claimed for
denying it, which was then used massively and ruthlessly for political
advantage. Either you denied the importance of race and feigned "colourblindness"
(you won't get a job in politics or the media unless you do) or were branded a "racist".
Politicians had to prove their "anti-racist",
i.e. colourblind, credentials by advocating (or, at least, not opposing) mass
immigration from Commonwealth countries and the creation of a multiethnic
society, which also suited the state and capital for the cheap labour it
By continuing to deny (including to oneself) and suppress as
"racist" the social and political importance of race and ethnicity the
mainstream political parties are making a genuinely racist backlash
