Bad news, the BNP says I don't exist

[Sarfraz in response to RobertPaul]:

"Personally I am rather glad he [my father] did [emigrate to Britain] and I also am not quite as pessimistic as you."

You have every reason, Sarfraz , to be glad of your British citizenship, and all the advantages that go with it, which generations of MY ancestors had to work and fight for . . . Not that I begrudge you personally sharing in my heritage and good fortune. If it were just you a few others there would be no issue, and you really would be welcome. But it's NOT just you and a few others. There are now millions of OTHERS. So many that it has undermined, certainly my sense of, national identify.

Not that this is a bad thing in itself, since it gives the LIE to the longstanding self-delusion that Britain ever was a genuine NATION. What we now have is a liberal fascist STATE (see Jonah Goldberg), which lays false claim to nationhood, in order to legitimize itself and disguise its role of facilitating society's self-exploitation to the advantage of its dominant and privileged elites.

It is a travesty (but no accident) that the Nazis, with all their well-deserved evil associations, described their ideology as "national socialism", thus dragging this vitally important concept (combining nationhood with socialism) into the abyss with them, so that now, no one dare use the term except as a synonym for evil.

It reminds me of how the literal meaning of "anarchism" was also changed to the very opposite of what its well-meaning advocates actually had in mind, i.e. putting an end to the tyranny of class and hierarchical society and of the powerful over the powerless.

A deep and genuine sense of NATIONHOOD (a shared sense of identity, belonging and mutual self-interest among its members), I am sure, is the ONLY basis on which a genuine, just, humane and participatory/grassroots-democratic society can be built, which by definition would be a (non-state, ie. non-fascist) form of socialism.

Thus, the idea we need to explore and develop, as a alternative to the existing, inherently unjust, inhumane and non-sustainable socioeconomic order (of liberal fascist state and capitalist economy) is MULTINATIONAL SOCIALISM.


In response to my request for an explanation as to why this comment was removed I received the following answer:

The following passage of our community standards applies to your removed comment: We will not tolerate racism, sexism, homophobia or other forms of hate-speech, or content that could be interpreted as such. We recognise the difference between criticising a particular government, organisation, community or belief and attacking people on the basis of their race, religion, gender or sexual orientation.

I sent another email asking what exactly had been misunderstood or misinterpreted as "hate-speech", but have so far received no response.
