I am a Burmese exile taking a near-permanent refuge in New York and Sydney. Here are my essays about Burma and anything else I feel like writing about. And posting the articles I like from selected sites. Bridging Burma to the world this Blog is more of a Politically-Oriented Literary Blog than a Plain News Blog or a Sophisticated Thoughts Blog.
I know I'm a racist because I'm told I'm a racist by a
great deal of people. The hard Left think I'm a racist, the Labour Party thinks
I'm a racist, Conservatives think I'm a racist, Liberal Democrats think I'm a
racist, the BBC thinks I'm a racist. So I must therefore be a racist.
Why am I a racist? It's very simple: I wish to preserve the
culture of my country, I wish to preserve the people of my country, and in
doing so that makes me a designated racist in today's society.
Now this is something that's been moved by the Left – the
goalposts have been moved by the Left a considerable distance on this. In order
to be termed a racist thirty or forty years ago, you had to actively dislike
foreign people. I don't dislike foreign people. What I do like, what I love, is
my country, my culture and my people, and I see them under a terrible threat at
Britain is a very small country that's opened its doors to
the mass immigrants of the Third World, and we are simple being overwhelmed.
Our schools can't cope, our hospitals can't cope, very little can cope any
more. Our welfare system is on the verge of buckling as well.
So if I want to defend what I grew up in, what I was born
into – my country, my British culture, my heritage and my history – I am apparently,
according to absolutely everybody today, a racist.
But I don't think that's the case. Not the case that I'm
not actually a racist – I'm going to admit that full out, right now, because
clearly I am. I've been told by so many people I am, it simply must be true.
I'm probably also an Islamophobe.
A phobia is an irrational fear of something. Now I don't
have an irrational fear of Islam. I look around the world today, – at Syria at
the moment, almost a hundred thousand people have been killed in the last two
years, where Shia Muslims are slaughtering Sunni Muslims and vice versa – I
look at places like Indonesia, Egypt, and China and the Philippines –
everywhere you look you see problems with Islam. And there's violence.
They are – dare I say it, to really reinforce my racist
credentials – a thoroughly savage political and religious ideology.
Now many people will disagree with that. The far Left of
course will say, you cannot criticise Islam because Islam is a religion, and
rules have now been put into place in this country that say if you criticise
it, you are guilty of inciting religious hatred.
But Islam is not
just a religion, Islam is a political ideology as well and we need to call it
out on the fact that it is also political. It is a culture that is both
political and religious.
I would like to know if I'm able to say certain things
about it. Do I think for example that stoning adulteresses to death is
something we should welcome in this country? Well I don't think it is.
Therefore, I'm guilty of religious hatred by saying it. Do I think homosexuals
should be hanged from cranes? No I don't, I think it's backward, I think it's
savage, and I think the people that do it are beyond the pale, quite frankly.
I'm not allowed to say these things because of course I'm
again inciting religious hatred. So not only am I a racist, I'm also a
But I'm not. We have a huge problem in this country, that
is not going to go away, it is going to get worse and worse and worse. We as a
people are declining, as a demographic, and the Islamic population is growing
nine times faster than any other; and when I look to the future I see a
full-blown religious civil war occurring in this country.
The unthinkable things that are going on in somewhere like
Syria today will happen in this country before 2040, certainly before 2050. I
don't want Britain to turn into a country like that.
So I'm going to denounce Islam as a backward, savage
political and religious ideology, and to hell with what anybody thinks about
that – because if we don't do something about it, we are going to be involved
in something that most people can barely even begin to imagine in Britain.
Babies are beheaded in towns in Syria. The idea this could
happen in somewhere like Surbiton, or even Eaton Square, is simply impossible
to think for most people but it is going to happen, it really is going to
happen. So we need to denounce it for what it is. And we need to start mounting
some sort of defence against it.
But the trouble with mounting a defence against it is that
you get hit with the 'racist' accusation: "I'm not a racist, but …".
So here's the thing: I am a racist. If I want to avoid a civil war happening in
my country, I am prepared to accept being called a racist; and you should be
prepared to accept being called a racist as well.
Let's all just
say, "Yes, we're dreadful, dreadful racists", and let's start
denouncing an ideology that is the most primitive, backward, savage ideology
that we've wilfully imported into this country – by the Left, by people like
Tony Blair, he did it deliberately in order to undermine our culture, our
people, our country, my country. They did it deliberately – and then they said
you're not allowed to actually argue with us about this.
Well I'm arguing with you about this Mr Blair. And I'll
tell you something: you ... repealed the treason laws shortly after you came
into power. I think you committed treason, Mr Blair. I think you committed
treason when you said, we are going to import the Third World in order to
"rub the noses of the right in diversity". For me, that's treason.
Your principal duty was to uphold the best interests of the
people of this country. The idea that you deliberately set out to undermine us
and to subvert us is an act that's criminal. It doesn't matter that you
repealed the laws, those laws can be brought back. And one day Mr Blair, you
will be tried for treason, along with the rest of your Cabinet and every single
high-ranking Labour politician that allowed this criminal act to happen.
I'm going to tell you this. It doesn't matter that you can
perhaps prosecute me for 'racism' or inciting religious hatred. I don't believe
in that. I believe only in one thing: the defence of my country, the defence of
my people, the defence of my culture. And everything else can just go to hell.
