Blowback in Britain

Gregory Hood, American Renaissance, October 18, 2022

Whites are held captive by their best traits. Whites want to believe in their countries, histories, and traditions, even when Western governments are run by people who are indifferent or even hostile to them.

In the United States, whites have the highest rates of patriotism. Although the federal government gives blacks and Hispanics preferential treatment, many non-white activists greet Independence Day with scorn or protest. Patriotism is at a record low and is declining even among whites. It’s not surprising. If those in power have contempt for a country’s history and identity, why should the people respect the country? If the ruling class behaves like foreign occupiers, why should it deserve the loyalty of patriots?

It’s worse in the United Kingdom. Britain does not have free speech. Immigrants are displacing the indigenous people. Enoch Powell was right; the United Kingdom, unnecessarily, imported an American-style race problem. Stephen Lawrence is today a far more admired figure than Winston Churchill. The spontaneous tributes throughout the UK after the death of Queen Elizabeth II show that England yet lives. However, many non-whites celebrated the Sovereign’s death.

A few months ago, the Royal Air Force imposed an “effective pause” on hiring white men. Instead, the RAF wanted women and non-whites. One courageous female officer resigned in protest.

Now we learn that China has recruited “dozens of former British military pilots” to teach its own men “how to defeat western warplanes.” The reported annual salaries are about 240,000 pounds, far more than Britain pays pilots as the Tories lead the UK into a recession. The government is powerless, beyond appealing to “honour and patriotism.”

Why should pilots be patriotic? Why risk their lives to defend a regime that spits on them and their ancestors? Working for the Chinese may be mercenary, but the Chinese don’t seem to have the same hostility towards whites that “Western” governments do. The National Broadcasting Corporation of Australia, another dying Anglosphere nation, recently published this idiotic observation:

So much of the commentary around China ignores the question of race. So many of the commentators discussing China — predominantly white voices — do not have the racial literacy to begin to understand how race and racism inform China’s rise.

In some ways, Xi’s China may represent the end of whiteness. Except that the Chinese Communist Party itself mirrors whiteness.

The irony is Xi has also become what he opposes. He is a Han nationalist — his idea of Chinese power is ethnic Han superiority — persecuting non-Han, non-white people in his own country.

If whiteness is power, Xi Jinping is its champion.

The continuation of white power, in darker skin.

Our own state media, NPR, noted in 2010 that white men with no experience could get jobs in Asia.

Reuters reported in late 2021:

American company men may find a savior in China Inc. As corporations try to make their ranks more ethnically representative, many experienced — if white and older — males will find themselves without a job. Chinese companies, deterred from acquiring U.S. firms with valuable intellectual property, can recruit their discarded human capital instead.

The article had the brutal title, “China Inc Will Recycle Used White Guys.” Evidently, that includes fighter pilots. China is happy to troll the West on its racial hypocrisy and use white men “our” governments seem to despise.

Training foreigners to better be able to attack your kinsmen is hardly patriotic. However, the British government is allowing the UK to be invaded by hostile foreigners. White pilots can hardly be blamed for taking a salary from China when they’ve already been sold out. It’s not betrayal if there’s nothing left to betray.

In the parlance of international relations, this is blowback. If you treat people with contempt, you may not like how they react. If the British government wants to stop this, it must stop treating the British like enemies rather than the proud owners of their island home and rightful heirs to its glorious history and traditions.
