Why We on the Left Made an Epic Mistake on Immigration

David Goodhart, Daily Mail (London), March 22, 2013

Among Left-leaning ‘Hampstead’ liberals like me, there has long been what you might call a ‘discrimination assumption’ when it comes to the highly charged issue of immigration.

Our instinctive reaction has been that Britain is a relentlessly racist country bent on thwarting the lives of ethnic minorities, that the only decent policy is to throw open our doors to all and that those with doubts about how we run our multi-racial society are guilty of prejudice.

And that view—echoed in Whitehall, Westminster and town halls around the country—has been the prevailing ideology, setting the tone for the immigration debate.

But for some years, this has troubled me and, gradually, I have changed my mind. 

Over 18 months of touring the country to talk to people about their lives for a new book, I have discovered minority Britons thriving more than many liberals suppose possible. But I also saw the mess of division and conflict we have got ourselves into in other places.

I am now convinced that public opinion is right and Britain has had too much immigration too quickly.

For 30 years, the Left has blinded itself with sentiment about diversity. But we got it wrong.

I still believe that large-scale immigration has made Britain livelier and more dynamic than it would otherwise have been. I believe, too, that this country is significantly less racist than it once was.

In many places immigration is working as the textbooks say it should with a degree of harmony, with minorities upwardly mobile and creating interesting new hybrid identities in mixed suburbs.

But it has also resulted in too many areas in which ethnic minorities lead almost segregated lives—notably in the northern ‘mill towns’ and other declining industrial regions, which in the Sixties and Seventies attracted one of the most clannish minorities of modern times, rural Kashmiri Pakistanis.

In Leicester and Bradford, almost half of the ethnic population live in what are technically ghettos (defined as areas where minorities form more than two-thirds of the population). Meanwhile, parts of white working-class Britain have been left feeling neither valued nor useful, believing that they have been displaced by newcomers not only in the job market but also in the national story itself.

Those in the race lobby have been slow to recognise that strong collective identities are legitimate for majorities as well as minorities, for white as well as for black people.

For a democratic state to have any meaning, it must ‘belong’ to existing citizens. They must have special rights over non-citizens. Immigration must be managed with their interests in mind. But it has not been.

The justification for such a large and unpopular change has to be that the economic benefits are significant and measurable. But they are not.

One of the liberal elite’s myths is that we are a ‘mongrel nation’ that has always experienced high inflows of outsiders. But this isn’t true. From 1066 until 1950, immigration was almost non-existent (excluding Ireland)—a quarter of a million at the most, mainly Huguenots and Jews.

Post-World War II immigration has been on a completely different scale from anything that went before. These days, more people arrive on our shores as immigrants in a single year than did so in the entire period from 1066 to 1950, excluding wartime.

Much of this happened by accident. When the 1948 Nationality Act was passed—giving all citizens of the Empire and Commonwealth the right to live and work in Britain—it was not expected that the ordinary people of poor former colonies would arrive in their hundreds of thousands. 

Nor was it expected after 1997 that a combination of quite small decisions would lead to 1.5 million East Europeans arriving, about half to settle. But come they did, and a net immigration of around four million foreign-born citizens since 1997 has produced easily the most dramatic demographic revolution in British history.

Yet there was no general discussion in the New Labour Cabinet of the day about who Britain wanted to let in and in what numbers; no discussion about how the country could absorb them without pressure on public services.

By the time of the next census in 2021, the non-white minority population will have risen to around 20 per cent, a trebling in just 25 years.

By 2066, according to one demographer, white Britons will be in a minority.

This is already the case in some towns and cities, including London, Leicester, Slough and Luton, with Birmingham expected to follow in the near future.

If Britain had a clear and confident sense of its national culture and was good at integrating people, then perhaps this speed of change would be of little concern. But this is not the case.

We are deep into a huge social experiment. To give it a chance of working, we need to heed the ‘slow down’ signs that the electorate is waving. And all the more so given that the low economic growth era we are now in means people’s grievances cannot easily be bought off with rising wages and public spending.

The fact is that the whole post-war process of immigration has been badly managed or, rather, not managed at all.

It is often said that the importation of people from the Indian subcontinent to work in textile mills that were soon to close—ironically, partly thanks to competition from India and Pakistan itself—was a poor piece of social engineering. 

But the whole point was that no one really engineered it. It just happened. 

And then no one came forward to grasp the consequences or even acknowledge there might be a problem.

The fault lies with our leaders, not with the people who came for a better life. There has been a huge gap between our ruling elite’s views and those of ordinary people on the street. This was brought home to me when dining at an Oxford college and the eminent person next to me, a very senior civil servant, said: ‘When I was at the Treasury, I argued for the most open door possible to immigration [because] I saw it as my job to maximise global welfare not national welfare.’

I was even more surprised when the notion was endorsed by another guest, one of the most powerful television executives in the country. He, too, felt global welfare was paramount and that he had a greater obligation to someone in Burundi than to someone in Birmingham.

Such grand notions run counter to the way most people in this country think or arrange their priorities.

The British political class has never prepared existing citizens for something as game-changing as large-scale immigration, nor has it done a good job at explaining what the point of large-scale immigration was and whose interests it was meant to serve. 

Crucially, they failed to control the inflow more overtly in the interests of existing citizens. On the contrary, the idea that immigration should be unambiguously in the interests of existing citizens was blurred from the start.

Then, whenever there were problems with immigrant communities, the tendency was for the host society to be blamed for not being sufficiently accommodating or for being racist, rather than considering the self-inflicted wounds of some minority cultures.

Thus, the absence of fathers in many African-Caribbean households was excused as a cultural trait that just had to be accepted rather than a dereliction of duty that needed addressing.

Yes, being a newcomer can be hard, even in a liberal society such as Britain’s that today offers undreamed of protections and rights compared with earlier eras. But what has been largely ignored is that mass immigration makes big demands on host communities, too, and a successful strategy must engage the attention, consent and sympathy of the host majority as well.

Democratic common sense demands that politics and law cannot concern themselves only with the problems of minorities. The majority must have a voice, too, in how we manage a multi-racial society.

Like most white British people of my generation, I am happy living in a multi-racial society. I relish the fact that the immigration-related changes of the past few decades have been overwhelmingly accepted and even celebrated by white Britain.

Caribbean and Chinese men and women ‘marry out’ in large numbers, and there are many places where a cross-ethnic common life is the norm, especially among younger people.

But one of the challenges is how to allow older and poorer white people a safe space in which to express a sense of loss and homesickness for the past, without this mood spilling over into racism.

What, for example, do we say to the elderly white people of the Pollards Hill estate in Merton, in South-West London — which I visited on my travels — many of whom feel displaced and disrupted by the arrival of a large Ghanaian population in recent years? 

To the local whites, the Ghanaians are not fitting in but imposing their own way of life on the neighbourhood. Similar small battles are taking place in thousands of other housing estates up and down the country. 

What has most bedevilled immigration in this country for years now is a twist in the prevailing doctrine of multi-culturalism.

As originally conceived, this was a deliberate and praise-worthy policy of ‘colour-blindness’ — a belief in equal rights and reform of institutions to stamp out prejudice and abuse of power. But it also placed an onus on the newcomer to fit in.

The immigrant has chosen to come to an existing country with its own laws, history, language and so on. Those need to be respected and understood. One cannot be British on one’s own exclusive terms or on a highly selective basis. 

That does not mean that pious Muslims must give up their religion and get drunk on Saturday nights.

But it does mean that Muslims must adjust to a society dominated by Christian and secular humanist values, which places a high degree of importance on individual freedom and the rights of women.

And they must accept that their minority rights must co-exist with and sometimes concede to majority rights, especially in the public sphere.

So far, so good.

Unfortunately, the multiculturalism that emerged in the Eighties ditched integration as an objective, put ethnic identity before national citizenship and reinforced a separateness that was already developing in some minority neighbourhoods through simple weight of numbers.

‘Parallel lives’ have been allowed to grow up in some places. Too often, the demands of minority leaders have been for a separate slice of power and resources, rather than for the means to create a common life.

The state cannot force people to integrate, but it can remove obstacles and make it easier to join in. Education is crucial here. 

But when, in 1984, Bradford headmaster Ray Honeyford, whose school was 90 per cent Muslim, wrote articles criticising Pakistani parents for taking their children on long trips to Pakistan during term-time and attacked the corporal punishment culture of mosque schools, a campaign by Muslim parents and local white activists forced him to resign.

It was a key victory for separatism and a defeat for integration. 

After that, separatist multiculturalism sided with the imams against Salman Rushdie after the publication of his book The Satanic Verses and the imposition of a fatwa against him; it encouraged people to wear non-Western dress and to continue speaking an ancestral language at home.

It judged the chauvinistic assumptions of many South Asian households by a different standard to that applied to white Britain. It was happy with South Asians going back to the subcontinent for arranged marriages with non-English speaking spouses, despite the damage to integration this often caused (and the misery for many young women).

Separatist multiculturalism, in its extreme form, even turned a blind eye to practices that were the opposite of the liberalism that inspired it — forced marriage, female genital mutilation, the hounding of gays.

The root problem with separatist multiculturalism is that minority Britons are encouraged to identify first as a member of that minority and only second, if at all, as a citizen. And this has made it harder for ordinary Britons to think of some minorities, and especially Muslims, as part of the same community as them, with common experiences and interests.

The problem with mass immigration is that, without integration, it damages the internal solidarity of a country such as ours. 

And if values and lifestyles become more diverse, it becomes more difficult to sustain the legitimacy of the welfare state.

Most of us are no longer asked to risk death for our country, but we are asked to pay around one third of our income into a common national pool and, in return, the state manages large bits of infrastructure for us — such as defence, transport, energy, public services, welfare and so on.

For this to work, the modern citizen is expected to conform to a thicket of rules and regulations. And in order to sustain this level of sharing and co-operation, we need at least some sense of ‘emotional citizenship’, the belief that, despite many different interests, we’re also part of the same team.

I fear that large-scale, poorly managed immigration is endangering this social contract. 

Britain is a welfare democracy. Existing citizens have rights of national ownership. Extending the idea of equal citizenship to millions of outsiders raises the problem of how to reconcile the special rights of existing citizens with those of new ones.

It is a problem we ignore at our peril.

    Charity begins at home. White Briton Elite, like White America’s Elite, will rewaluze soon enough that they crapped in their own nest. Charity should always begin first at home. Duh!

  • sbuffalonative

    The “progressive” left has used the word “racism” like a sledgehammer to silence critics and now they survey their destruction and wonder how it all went so horribly wrong.

    England has now ensured a future of ethnic, religious, and racial tension and eventual outright conflict (rivers of blood so to speak). They may not live to see it but their grandchildren will.

    The capitulation is so advanced that Britain’s now no longer have any argument to defend their homeland and history. When the Muslims ask that Westminster be converted into a mosque, they will have no reason to say no.

    In the future, if any native Brits survive, some of them may come to believe ‘the racists’ were right.

      It will be interesting to see what happens to the monarchy. Will Kate’s daughter be married to a Paki? I guess it doesn’t matter, based on what they’ve done it’s nothing but a joke anyway.

  • Eagle_Eyed

    Interesting. A few good points, a few incoherent ones. The fact is the enemy to Western nationalists and patriots is not those cheap labor budinessmen motivated by money but professors and politicians enchanted by the Marxist idea that nations don’t really exist thus we should seek a globalist agenda. Decentralization is the only thing which will take away power from these fools, and they won’t give it up unless we the people actually take it back.

    • Wayne

      Nationalism is the only antidote for globalism aka liberal democracy. States rights is a form of that.

  • Pat

    One of educational elite has noticed what the rest of us have known for decades. Rejoice.

  • JustaWhiteMom

    He probably gets more than one-third of the truth, but is only saying as much as he thinks he can get away with.

    The good thing is that you know if he is thinking these thoughts, others are too. Its just a matter of getting a critical mass to say so at the same time in the same place.

    • SargeInCharge

      If you look at the “Best Rated” tab of the comments section in the original article, you’ll see that critical mass has already been reached by Englishmen — quite decisively and likely several years ago. They would be more vocal if the government didn’t have laws limiting “hate” speech.

      • JustaWhiteMom

        Oh I know that’s true about ordinary folks, but I’m talking about elites like this character. I think a lot more of them know the score than we might imagine.

        I don’t think White elites agree with White genocide so much as they are going along with it out of self-interest.

          White elites are not really human, not like you and me at any rate. They have no compassion or empathy for their fellow White man. They are soulless tools of unspeakable evil. They know exactly what they are doing and they derive great pleasure from it. They are in the same mold as Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, etc. They feed on our despair and misery.

            Starting with the GOP.

            Politically and at the ballot box, of course.

            The GOP leadership agrees with their Democrat colleagues that it’s a shameful fact that so many White taxpaying American citizens continue to vote GOP in such percentages. Prima Facie evidence of “racism”.

            The media says it’s “racist”; what with all those shameful racist White folks always voting not-Democrat.

            The Republicans at the highest echelons of leadership of the party have come around at long last.

            They openly agree with the Democrat party government-media people advising the GOP that White taxpaying citizens are somewhat an embarrassing and unfortunate racist-liability, an electoral Albatross, if you will. Taxpayers, their kids, and grandkids are just racists that deserve to be dis-armed, then expropriated by government.

            Any complaints by White ‘persons’ will be met by government and their
            media arm with accusations and charges of WHITE-PRIVILEGE and RACISM.

            Well, they got the expropriation using weaponized-debt against the grandkids of the future part down about 100 trillion dollars ago.

            The Republicans and all their fake propaganda about being pro-Liberty and de-funding illegitimate and wasteful functions Government arrogated to itself are just so much hogwash.
            I have never knowingly voted for any of the Crat candidates on a ballot, because they openly say that they disapprove of people being born with White skin or being allowed to live, and Democrats generally want to move the government towards having the power to run/end life, especially based on the color of your skin.
            That’s the reality, worldwide.

            AmRen posters have opened my eyes to the fact that the GOP isn’t much more than a formerly-profitable cost center that has to be propped up by the taxpayers, of course.

            When have Republicans ever reduced a government budget or discontinued a program?

    • kjh64

      I think the pro-mutlicultural crowd “gets” it, they just refuse to admit to reality. Think about, do you ever see these types of Whites living in minority neighborhoods? The answer is no. They have their token pet minorities around but they don’t practice what they preach, well only a very few. Ninety-five percent of them flee to the all-White burbs or live in trendy, mostly White gentrified urban areas.

      • NorthernWind

        They kinda “get it” but they suffer from optimism bias. It’s nicer to believe that one day we will all live in a multicultural wonderland than to accept the fact that multiculturalism has failed and the future involve a great struggle.

        • Wayne

          In seeking the multicultural dream, however, they had to determine in their own mind that English children were not desirable in their own country. See, that is really what they did–deny English children an existence as English children. They truly deserve to hang, and I mean that literally and soberly.

        • kjh64

          That’s true of some White women AND men but don’t kid yourself, most iiberal Whites of either sex do not live in minority neighborhoods or raise their kids there. Of course they’ll never say it’s due to race, they’ll say it’s “bad schools” “bad neighborhoods” etc.

      • Wayne

        You give them far too much credit. They know exactly what they have been doing and exactly where it leads. It’s a mass psychosis, though, quiet fascinating really. An invested concept of racism causing people to want to destroy their ancient culture. Mind boggling!

        • Svigor

          The thing to remember is, if you don’t value what you have, someone will come along and take it from you. Whites have never valued their genetic heritage in sufficient numbers to prevent someone from coming along and taking it from them.

      • Room101

        The multicult Leftists are finally being threatened at knifepoint, robbed, raped, whatever.
        It’s the society their leaders built for them, and the country shall continue to chafe under accusations of “racism”, “bigot”, “white-privilege swine”.

        That’s what Leftists do, and they do it well.

        For the most part, the Democrats will promise to stop calling White neighborhoods “racist” if the school levy is passed. As long as the taxpayers agree to turn out their pockets until there isn’t a red cent left, they can buy off charges and accusations of “racism” and “white privilege”.

        People that pay a lot more in taxes than I do don’t seem concerned about what they’re paying, but they don’t like the idea of the White students in our local schools having to wear identifying wristbands that point out the White kids as “racists” with “white privilege”.

        Makes me fighting mad.

        • ms_anthro

          I don’t know about you, but where I live people have stopped caring about being called racist. I’ve heard commentary from formerly hardcore Obamabots that would be right at home here on AmRen. I tell you, Whites are waking up.

            Who knows? I don’t think it really matters. The money is gone and getting goner. People will soon have no choice but to fight or die.

          • Svigor

            It does matter. Part of our challenge is to secure a future for ourselves and our posterity. Tough to do that if we rely on economic circumstances; when the next boom rolls around, whites will be right back to square one stupidity.

            Reminds me of the problem of whites who hearken to the past as example; whites have never been racially sound in their thinking, so the past avails us nothing. We need to create an entirely new sort of consciousness, a permanent one, in the minds of whites. Otherwise we’re just setting ourselves up for another disaster down the road.

            I think part of it is moving beyond racial thinking, to tribal thinking. Like the Jews. We need to blend ideology and ancestry into a new criterion.

          • ms_anthro

            Our first step needs to be celebrating White people and Whiteness instead of allowing it to be used as a smear or badge of shame. We also need to encourage all Whites to unify against non-White hostility, violence, and plunder. Infighting between the cultures of indigenous Europeans and their colony cousins around the globe has to stop or we’ll never make it. We are less than 10% of the world’s population! We must hang together or we’ll hang separately, to paraphrase good old Ben.

            How we can achieve this, I don’t know, but it has to be done.

  • PBL

    “Britain has had too much immigration too quickly.” And later he goes on to say it is a matter of having the “cultural confidence” to quickly integrate new arrivals.

    Close, but no biscuit. He is still a multiracialist, albeit a now weak-kneed one. How long will it take him to wake up and smell the tea, and can Britain afford the lag time in his comprehension?

    • IstvanIN

      Britain needed no immigration whatsoever.

      • Stentorian_Commentator

        Amen. If you have had to import food for the last 400 years or so (perhaps I’m overstating that) and the industries on which you relied are faltering, there was no good reason to bring anyone in. Unless, of course, you hate the historic British nation and you want to bring it down. I’m a mick by ancestry, and have been discouraged from having feelings for England, but if they go, the same will happen to Ireland and the rest of Europe, and it is happening. What a disgusting shame.

        • newscomments70

          Ireland was very white until EU membership. The place rapidly filled up with Africans, Gypsies and other. Now there are areas in every major irish city that are no-go zones for whites. Like London, Dublin is full of schools where only a minority of students speak English.

        • IstvanIN

          The UK was much like Japan, with as very import/export oriented economy, importing raw materials and exporting finished goods, thus the empire. Americans were not permitted to manufacture many necessities which, along with taxes, led to independence. The UK was a net exporter of people though much of it’s history. The British Isles provided the founding populations and the bulk of the original population for the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The UK is a tiny island country and in no way needed immigrants. The natural resources and acreage are just not their. In addition the British, in particular the Scots, provided so much of the Anglo-Sphere’s greatest scientists and entrepreneurs. The US and the Commonwealth were greatly enhanced by British Immigration.

          Britain should have remained an emigrant nation, keeping its population reasonable and spreading British civilization throughout the world. To see it turned into Afro-Pakistan by the English Channel is a sin.

          • NorthernWind

            I suspect that things will be very different in America than in Europe. I don’t know exactly why but it seems to me that Europe is much closer to the breaking point. The whole movement over there is far more advanced, despite the lack of relative free speech. They have the new right, they have all sorts of nationalists and radicals, they have better party systems, and they have a long history. It’s harder to justify, for most people, preserving America (or Canada, Australia, etc) as a White country than it is for them to justify France or any other European country as being natively White.

            Think about how Golden Dawn came out of nowhere as the result of a relatively minor collapse. More generalized social dislocation across Europe could be all it takes.

            In America and Canada the idea of diversity and multiculturalism will endure longer than in Europe. I feel safe in saying that Europe will endure but I do not feel the same way about America or Canada.

          • Nancy Thomas

            I do not agree that it is hard to justify preserving America, Canada, and Australia as white countries. Whites fought for and founded and BUILT those countries. In fact, logically speaking it is much harder to justify RUINING white nations with uneducated, unskilled, HOSTILE third world hordes. There is NO justification for this destruction….unless a certain group is overly paranoid and wants to Holocaust prooof the entire western world.

            Rand Paul is extremely savvy politician.
            His position is that the Congress will agree with Amnesty for foreign criminal illegal invaders into America in exchange for a promise of “border security” as a benchmark starting point of discussions.

            The GOP doesn’t intend to use the Government to protect American citizens, only to strip us of all our rights, even the right to defend ourselves and our families.
            It’s what the Left does to White people world-wide.

          • Nancy Thomas

            You’re much too kind. I see it differently. He saw how his father was savaged by the media and marginalized for years, simply for standing up to the elites and the FED, etc.
            Soooooooo…..Rand decided to go ahead and sell out and sell out BIG.
            Although, another idea struck me just today, and it’s that it’s possible that Rand Paul KNOWS very well that amnesty will NEVER pass the house, so he’s safe to proclaim that he’s for it because his overtures in that case would be meaningless, and he’s trying to set himself up for a 2016 bid. I can tell you absolutely that if the GOP allows amnesty to pass then they are my ENEMY, and I mean that in the fullest sense of the word. This is the last stand for white America. If they pass an amnesty for 11 to 20 million hostile freeloaders, America is toast. You can’t have an open borders welfare state. I don’t think that you need a tinfoil hat to see that the economy will totally collapse if they continue down this unsustainable path. I plan to make a million anti-amnesty calls in the next two weeks, and I hope that the rest of the folks here will do the same. Give to Numbers and Fair. Do all you can. The battle is NOW.

          • Room101

            I fear he’s just another Government sell out. They do have “OR ELSE” against him, all of them.

            I’m pretty sure Rand Paul isn’t going to be allowed to be a significant public or political figure in his current configuration until he comes around to acquiescing to millions more foreign criminal invaders spilling over the border to get on welfare.
            Like the GOP/Homocrats.

          • Svigor

            You might be over-thinking it. Rand Paul could just be reverting to libertarian type. 95% of them are open-borders fanatics. 99% of them are ideologues.

            What you fail to realize is those elite liberal whites are vastly outnumbered by the rest of us. And outgunned, considering their views on gun ownership. We will prevail and rest assured we are taking names and making lists of who is to be held accountable for the attempted destruction of our Western cultures.

            Multicultists have laughingly kicked and spat on the sleeping giant that is European civilization for decades now. They’re about to find out what happens when that giant wakes up and fights back.

          • Svigor

            The vast majority of non-elite whites are liberal on immigration, integration, affirmative action, etc. I don’t think they have the mental constitution to be otherwise, really. At best they’re sheep, and sheep follow the television.

          • ms_anthro

            That hasn’t been my experience at all. Even former libtards are coming out as closet r-words in my social circle, which is solidly White and middle to upper middle class.

          • Svigor

            You have a point, but there’s only so much we can do. I think the idea of saving America, for example, is overly-ambitious to the point of self-destructiveness.

            We have to come to terms with the fact that many, maybe even most, of our race neither want to be saved, nor can be saved.

          • ms_anthro

            No argument there. America is gone forever. The question is really more about what we will form afterward.

            As for the self-loathing Whites who want to die, let them. I do think it’s imperative that whatever pro-White government we create from the wreckage requires both military service and income tax payment to garner voting privileges. People without skin in the game shouldn’t get to make the rules.

            Right,but 99% of White repub’s,dont care about Racial Reality either.there has to be a righteous alternative to the left,or were history!

        • Svigor

          I freely admit having little faith in my own kind. Comes from years of observation. There’s the general white type, which does not seem to have the genes for racial survival, and then there’s the ethnocentric white type which does, but is a distinct minority.

          I’ve resigned myself to awakening, organizing, and saving the latter. Those of the former who want to be saved will have to prove themselves the latter, I think.

          Just throwing a number out there, but maybe 10 to 20 percent fall into the latter category, or at least, would qualify if given a chance to give racial realism a hearing.

          The rest are just too individualistic, too “high-minded,” too something to ever really care about race. Maybe they could be persuaded, but there’s no one to persuade them.

          • ms_anthro

            We’re out there. You, me, countless others. I understand your pessimism, I really do, but we can’t succumb to it. Morale is everything in this war. We will fight to win or we will go the way of the dodo. I have no intention of letting our people be extinguished like some rare and precious species of Amazon flower. Not without a fight anyway.

          • Svigor

            It’s not really pessimism, I don’t think. Just realism. To be honest, I’m an optimist by nature. But I don’t think an honest appraisal of whites really supports an optimistic view. By that I mean, I don’t think we should be aiming to save the whole race because it would be a waste of resources, in a futile cause. They don’t really have anything beyond race in common with us. They don’t want to be saved. And WNism, ethnopatriotism, racial survival, whatever you want to call it, requires more in common than just race (take a look at white libs if you doubt me).

    • I agree with you. This guy still does not get it, but I guess he’s trying. David Goodheart, despite such a sweet sounding name, sounds like a jew who has it out for white Europeans.

        He is a genocidal traitor to the English people and their children. He admits it here. The “guilty” Nazis were better than these people–at least they didn’t kill their own.

        • Svigor

          I agree that judging from his surname, he’s probably Jewish. But let’s face facts: he’s just done more for native white Britons than most white elites in Britain will in their entire lives.

    • Wayne

      He’s flippant about it, even condescending. Like he forgot to take the trash out. He wants the genocide of English children and he calls it mistake??? The English were not good enough for him is guess.

    • Svigor

      The thing to remember about the lib promise to “demanding integration” is, it’s a lie. Like the “suuure, we’ll enforce the border after an immigration amnesty, we promise,” and the “suuure, we’ll cut spending after we raise taxes, we promise,” lies.

      They’re all just lies that are discarded the moment the sociopaths (lib leadership and intelligentsia) get their way.

  • guest

    What’s this idiot blathering about. That article would have been productive 20 or 30 years ago. Now we’re well beyond the point of polite discussion about how things ought to be. We’re in the tribal power conflict stage now. Will the English tribe win or will it submit to a fragile coalition of Pakistani and black tribes? Looks like the English tribe has already withdrawn from London and is handing over its loot willingly to any brown person it can find. There won’t be any nice reasonable negotiation to fix the situation here. The only kind of people who have good-faith discussions of issues are British people. The foreign invaders see such philosophical ponderings as weakness to be exploited.

      • guest

        That’s right. The only people who believe in this discussion of multiculturalism and anti-racism are British and other Western Europeans. This idiot here went on for 2248 words philisophizing about multiculturalism. The only message from all those 2248 words that the Muslims and Africans hear is, “I am weak.” He could have reduced his 2248 words to five words: “I am weak. Exploit me.”

        He needs to stop with it and start saying, “time to send them home. Our beautiful country has descended into tribalism. Anti-racism and multiculturalism have no meaning to these people, it was a mistake, and let’s undo it now, by whatever means are necessary.”

        • Room101

          For any UK citizen to say or print “time to send them home” is not necessarily speech the government won’t prosecute.
          The government in the UK, Canada, etc., has the discretion in deciding whether police action should be taken against a subject for publishing certain opinions that could be construed as “racists” being “discriminatory”.

          • guest

            Meanwhile, in Pakistan, they don’t hesitate to burn down Christian neighborhoods when the mood takes them.

            All this diversity and multiculturalism is setting things up for civil wars in the not-so-distant future. If they have banned polite discussion of the subject today, then it means the problem will be resolved later in much more extreme ways. It will happen. I know that whites in South Africa capitulated without any resistance, but something tells me that will not happen in every place in the white world.

            The last few paragraphs of the article are a solid summary of why any liberal Western European should fight against mass-immigration, but unfortunately the rest of the article before that proposes creating some kind of new “national story” as the solution to the problem. The problem is that these immigrants already have their own stories, such as Islam, which no made-up new national story will ever displace.

    • sbuffalonative

      The British have ceded so many points to non-whites that they no longer have any reasonable argument to fight even if they wanted to. They have given up their culture and history to appease these invaders and they no longer have a defense.
      The only thing to do now is say, ‘we were wrong about immigration on every front. Britain for the British’. No excuses. No apologies. Unfortunately, I don’t believe they have the political will to take action (much like the US and every other historically white nation).

      • Wayne

        No, there are others with claim to “British” identity. It should be England for the English, Scotland for the Scots, Wales for the Welsh, and Ireland for the Irish. Abolish the Not-so-Great Britain, the Empire was over a century ago.

        • Steven Bannister

          Hmmm… being an American, I never thought much about British land rivalries, but maybe there’s some hope here. Could the IRISH save themselves by kicking out everyone but the Irish? How about just Wales? Scotland?

          If just ONE segment of Britain was able to recapture it’s identity, even in a small way, perhaps that could make ALL of the dominos fall…

          Just a point – the Great in front of Britain refers to us becoming larger when Scotland joined in the early 1700s. It was never meant to be a word indicating glory or success, although that is what most people think nowadays.

I would like Britain to stay united so that in the event that we get the promised referendum we can hopefully vote together to get ourselves out and put a stop to this mass movement of people. Might be a naive wish, but can’t see much else at the moment.

      Reading comment sections in British papers, it seems more anti-immigration Brits back UKIP over BNP.

      • Unperson

        UKIP definitely do better at the polls than BNP. Which is unfortunate, as BNP is the better, more genuinely nationalist, of the two parties. But UKIP is considered somewhat more “respectable” than the BNP — whose “racism” the media treat as if they were radioactive.

        Although at this point even the imperfect UKIP would be a huge improvement over the Con-Demn-Lib monstrosity currently astride poor old Blighty. At least they’re anti-European Union; as the EU has been a ferocious contributor to UK’s immigration woes.

  • bigone4u

    The word “crime” does not appear once in Goodhart’s otherwise useful essay. Nor does he call for a moratorium on immigration and a policy designed to encourage immigrants to return home with some cash in their jeans. He also foolishly seems to believe that Muslims will accept a secular humanist/Christian culture. In short, he’s taken the first baby step to race realism. Welcome aboard, Mr. Goodhart, but you have some learning to do.

        Perfect candidates. But there are other worms in the woodwork.

  • Luca

    Where to begin.

    Immigration is an issue that has been controlled by the politicians (first mistake) in England and America. Politicians and especially liberal ones, do what’s best for them and not what’s best for the people. Was there ever a referendum put before the people on how to manage post WW2 or post 1965 immigration? No. If so how would the will of the people have been expressed? By and large they would have wanted immigrants who were not overwhelmingly needy, who were easy to assimilate, who were teachable, who were alike in customs and values, who could learn English within a few years, who would not drive down wages, who were not inclined towards criminal or anti-social behavior, who would contribute more to society than they drain and they would have wanted a controlled and moderate process.

    Bottom line is, they got pretty much the complete opposite because of the whims of Liberal politicians dabbling in social engineering. Liberals wanted great numbers of uneducated immigrants who are easily manipulated and would vote for the party handing out the tax money.

    The result has been a complete alienation and Balkanization of both countries. The immigrants are taking far more than they are contributing and once great societies are being lost while the immigrants and the liberal politicians are the winners..

    • dj2

  • IstvanIN

    “minority Britons” The only real minority Britons are the Welsh, Scots and Northern Irish, every other “minority” isn’t British (the English being the majority). Oh, and their is no such thing as a white Briton or white British. ALL real British are white, European derived peoples, the others are simply Asian, or African, or heaven knows what.

    • Yes, the term ‘white Briton’ is getting so pervasive I even have to try and stop myself from using it.

      The term Briton has a meaning, and it is frustrating when it abused in this way, such as when two Pakistani decendant “British” people are arrested abroad, or when some Somali drug smuggler now resident in Slough has been caught with a dodgy suitcase in Malaysia, they are “Britons” in trouble.

      It is also obvious to me that by reducing the indigenous to a mere colour, they can just keep pocketing us as percentages. “35% White”…..”15% white”…..”2% White”…. It does not have the same ring to it as “ethnically cleansed”.

  • Jaego

    It was not expected that hundreds of thosands would come? Not expected by who? Him? I’d say the creators of the Policy knew exactly what they were doing and why – just as they did here in America.

    Their tactic of many small incremental decisons obviously completely obfuscates their goal for journalists like this. But he wants to be decieved as well since he believes in their ultimate goal. I mean what possible gain could masses of coloreds ever be to White Working Class Britions? Or Britain itself or Britain is to remain itself?

          Also, at least we Americans actually fought the Germans back then, we didn’t just hand our country over to them like we are doing to Mexico. Mexico is conquering us and not only are we not firing a single shot, we are just making it easier to give it to them. Sick really. All because some of our businesses want cheap labor and our polticians want votes.

        • Svigor

          Obviously it’s absurd to think America, or even Britain would have been invaded, much less conquered, by the Germans had they won WWII, but otherwise, I agree.

  • Paleoconn

    He talks about Britain being livelier and more dynamic as a result of mass immigration. I guess that is the equivalent of the American ‘vibrant’. He also mentions that he likes living in a multiracial society without saying why exactly. I think I know: it’s all the great curries and reggae he can partake in since the browns and blacks have swarmed in. Those are the best arguments for the multicult we’ve had so far: food and music. As if we can’t get music any other way, say iTunes, or recipes online for that matter.

    • It is certainly more “exciting” to wonder if you are going to get your pockets picked by Romany beggars, raped, stabbed, shot, or see anybody else that is actually authentically British on public transport, I suppose.

      It adds a little “vibrancy” to the day and no doubt makes you thankful you’re still alive when you get home, and not stabbed to death by some crazy Black……unlike that poor lass the other week, who didn’t make it.

      I do not know what it is that these people see as a benefit from the presence of other races. They say that we are all the same, yet we should be thankful for their differences. Then they say that they have differences and are treated poorly because of it, but the differences are never the negative differences. The contradictions and unbalanced nature of it goes on and on.

      Most “pro multiracialists” I have had the misfortune to meet in life seem to be all in favour of this “diversity” but know absolutely nothing about any other race or culture. They do not care. They are just parrots and drones who have been told to think and say that is good.

      Essentially, it seems to me, that they only enjoy them being here so that they have something more unusual to gawp at on the street, in order to stimulate their otherwise empty brains. Their lives are so dull that they cannot entertain their small minds unless they have this chaos and ‘different colours’ to look at.

      As for food, as the old saying goes “we’ve got the recipe now, so you can all begger off home!”. The amount of fast food outlets (kebabs, foreign pizza houses, jerk chicken, etc) blights many high streets and the litter generated from them is tremendous. The rat population is rising in London like nobody’s business.

      But I guess this food culture is something we are supposed to celebrate too. George Galloway once quipped pithily that “all you could get to eat in the 1950’s was egg and chips” (as he glorified the ethnic cuisine we now see festooned around everywhere).

      Well George, I would gladly eat egg and chips every day, breakfast, lunch and dinner for the rest of my life, compared to the situation that has now presented itself.

      • Paleoconn

        And it’s bollocks and you Britons, say. The British culinary tradition is a lot more complex, rich and exquisite than the public is made to believe. It is always presented as poor and bland, if not disgusting, while all the mystery foods of the immigrants marketed as civilizing and enriching the ignorant, boorish locals.

        Liberal hypocrisy is a given. But in the multicult, even more so than usual. They live and breathe and mate no different than the average Klansman.

        The saddest song I’ve heard in a while is the Kinks’ “There’s No England Now (Living on a Thin Line)”, off the 1984 Word of Mouth album.

When you could laugh at jokes without checking first that others were laughing too. When you could go to a job interview knowing that your potential employer hadn’t already decided to fill the vacancy with a black or brown person just to get their ethnic quota up. When you could walk into any neighbourhood knowing that everyone there looked like you. etc. etc.

      Those are the best arguments for the multicult we’ve had so far: food
      and music.

      Yep, that’s the best that most of ’em can come up with. I recall a conversation with a couple of former friends years ago, “One thing I can’t understand about racists is all the great food there is now”, that’s what she said. Didn’t even mention music. You know, reggae and those groovy bongo-drum workshops, Such vacant-headed stupidity is beyond comprehension.

      Yes, I’m sure Dave enjoys his occasional “ethnic cuisine” and “ethnic festival”, then retires for the evening to his cushy residence in a mostly White, safe area with a token upper class non-White or two.

      • Paleoconn

        White liberal hypocrisy is a given.

    • David Ashton

      The UK claptrap uses the word “vibrant” too. The parallels in all the white countries with mass immigration problems are elites in “education”, media and politics that use identical language, “arguments” and policies. There is an international confraternity at work.

  • He has since done another article for the series, relating to his book: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2298553/A-mega-mosque-suburb-90-cent-white-30-years-ago-polite-apartheid-dividing-Britain.html

    Those who have been around long enough in British Nationalism will likely be aware of Mr Goodhart and his work with various left-leaning thinktanks.

    He has tinkered around the edges for many years now, and has not suddenly sprung into some sort of action. He wrote some pieces for Prospect Magazine (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prospect_%28magazine%29) many years ago which echo his latest contribution.

    The answer for Goodhart? Why, it is “creating a new national story” where all our (now) pulverised cities and townsfolk can find commonality, integrate together, to create a new sense of shared national identity and a shared sense of belonging…….

    Annihilation of the ethnic British seems to be fine with this guy, as long as nobody falls out with each other in the meantime, and as long as the “bonds of solidarity” that can underpin a “welfare state” can prevail.

    He may be slightly awakening from his liberal coma, but his vision is still blurry and is recommending all the wrong remedies.

    They still seek to ignore race in favour of some kind of “proposition nation” flag waving jingoism of civic nationalism, and wish to attempt some “muscular liberalism” to try and put humpty dumpty back together again in a different form – something that was one solid but which they have gleefully been smashing up for the last 70 years.

    The media here – with today’s brouhaha about this so called “tough speech” on immigration by the Conservatives (which has as much bite as a goldfish) – are in some kind of renewed hysteria over immigration.

    It is all hype on behalf of party posturing, and more importantly for the established order, ANOTHER chance to fill the airwaves with how the British are lazy and need immigrants, that we are so much better off as a nation for them, that we need them to pay for our old age, and a million other lazy clichés and platitudes that drive me absolutely crazy.

    Nobody seems to be allowed to have another position and nobody is ever quoted on the news with a contrary position.

    That is all I think they keep announcing these half-baked measures for – to ram home more of the agenda and lies, and to create further panic around the world that they had better get to England quick, because “this time” they might actually be having a real crackdown……

    Time after time, their fake announcements probably cause spikes in immigration.

    It is all a load of hot air from politicians who do not remotely want to change things about this country and the way it is heading, and more hot air from Mr Goodhart, who has simply flipped position from “multiculturalist” to “muscular liberalism” of “renewed togetherness”. More of the same then, basically.

    • Room101

      Hopefully the Left will now draw out the Long Knives and excommunicte Mr. Goodhart as an unreliable believer in the church of Leftism. Since there is no guarantee of freedom of speech in the UK, could Mr. Goodhart somehow be punished by the government for his offensive and divisive (to anti-White Leftists) for blasphemous anti-dieversity heresies/pro-“racist” screed?

      I think Mr. Goodhart’s fellow Leftists ought to make an example of him. He’s clearly some kind of “racist”, just like media writers are called over here in the USA for asking White people their opinions about being White. Or people who object to forcing White kids in Wisconsin’s government schools to wear white wristbands, are similarly excoriated and vilified as “racists” and “bigots”.

      So sad that there’s no longer a ‘free country’ Mr. Goodhart can flee to.

  • NorthernWind

    A leftist partially admitting that immigration and “diversity” is bad? That’s a change. He didn’t go where he should have, that is a declaration that all immigration, especially non-White, is bad, but perhaps this is still a sign that the cult of diversity is starting to be rejected even by leftists. All castles built upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand must come crashing down in time!

      Exactly. They’re desperate to cling to their beliefs even when they come face to face with their failure. ‘It might have worked if we tried harder or did something different. Our motives were pure, our goals were true and noble, no can accuse us of hate or intolerance.’
      Now he has to live with it.
      I’ve said it before. I can imagine the day when liberals are going to have their heads chopped off in the public square by Muslims but all the time they’re be blaming themselves.

      • Room101

        The Muslim head-choppers will be well compensated government employees with generous benefits and pensions, all funded by the “racists”/taxpayers.
        The Muslims in the UK have made it very clear to the authorities in the UK, and all the other formerly White-run countries as well (except Russia), that certain areas have been ceded to them which they will now continue to hold as military forces establish bridgeheads into enemy territory.

        • OnGuard

          Reminds me of what the Turkish Prime miinister Erdogan said to fellow Turks in Germany a few years ago: “The mosques are our barracks, the domes are our helmets, the minarets, our spears and the believers are our soldiers”. Yes, he admitted it plainly; bridgeheads into enemy territory!

    “One cannot be British on one’s own exclusive terms or on a highly selective basis. ”

    No, one cannot be British unless you have British parents.

    “The majority must have a voice, too, in how we manage a multi-racial society.”

    Why should a policy be implemented that causes a country or its’ people to have to “manage” it? You “manage” chronic diseases or things you have no control over and don’t want, government policy shouldn’t be one of them.

    “And if values and lifestyles become more diverse, it becomes more difficult to sustain the legitimacy of the welfare state.”

    You think? Common sense will tell you that. Welfare states can only work when you have a common people, with a common culture. You can have a welfare state or a multicultural, multiracial society, you can’t have both.

    “Like most white British people of my generation, I am happy living in a multi-racial society”

    How do you know most Whites of your generation are happy living in a multi-racial society? I don’t recall Whites ever being asked or given a choice if they wanted any of this.

    Why would a small island nation admit so many immigrants, and immigrants which are so unlike them?

    It just doesn’t make sense.

    In America we can at least make the argument about our history of immigration, and having wide open spaces. I don’t agree with that argument, but it can be made.

    Britain can’t even make that.

    • SargeInCharge

      It makes sense if their intent was to destroy the national identity of that island.

      Seeing the toll that nationalism took on Europe in World Wars I & II, run of the mill Lefties saw the destruction of a strong national identity as a way to avert future nationalistic wars. Committed Marxists saw mass immigration of colored people and using oppressed minority rhetoric as a better way to get the majority to support Marxist policies than pitting white social classes against each other. It was a Leftist marriage made in heaven with the intent to destroy the historic national identity and the control of the historic people via mass immigration.

      • Wayne

        Communist, specifically Bolshevik, agitation in Germany against the German people, language and culture during the leftist corrupt Weimar Republic, coupled with the illegitimate burden of total responsibility for WWI is what gave rise to extreme nationalism in Germany.

      It occurs that the problem is the totalitarian bent of liberalism. They don’t give a damn about rights or freedom. So, they’ll have no problem settling into a totalitarian regime.

    Yes, Mr. Goodhart, you and your kind did indeed make “an epic mistake on immigration.”

    And in the real world mistakes are customarily punished. Considering you have already admitted to your guilt, what do you suggest your punishment should be? Keep in mind that “the punishment should fit the crime” — and the crime in question has been, to use your own words, an “epic” one? Seems to me, then, Mr. Goodhart, that you and the other liberals who naively and recklessly promoted Britain’s immigration atrocity are deserving of some epic punishment, are you not?

    “The root problem with separatist multiculturalism is that minority Britons are encouraged to identify first as a member of that minority and only second, if at all, as a citizen”.

    And whites are supposed to identify with them, too, and only care about the welfare of poor, victims of color. At least that’s how it works in the USA. Minority activism is just great. The height of enlightenement. Similar white activism, by contrast, is seen as The greatest evil. People of color are only happy to agree. The ‘minority’ make up the majority in many places. Perhaps in most of the places they settle.

    I’m surprise no one has mentioned Enoch Powell. He said something very similar to this in the early 1970’s? He gave truly a great speech on this matter. He turned out to be prophetic.

      Again, are you surprised? This is common leftist mentality. They cannot and should not be reasoned with.
      Every day that passes I sympathize more and more with pre-WWII Germany. History will show they did what was necessary. This genocidal maniac is one in a million. What are proud white men who love hearth and home to do?

        Same here. In fact, I think I’ve turned the corner to Anarcho-Fascism.

    Codswallop. You knew.

  • JohnEngelman

    Better late than never. Unfortunately, most on the left have still not learned.

    A homogeneous work force is easier to organize into labor unions. It is more likely to vote for left wing political parties. The New Deal was possible because non white immigration was prevented by the immigration restriction acts of 1921 and 1924, and because most blacks lived in the South where they were second class citizens.

    This meant that white blue collar workers could vote Democrat without voting for social and economic equality with non whites.

    • Svigor

      Talking out of the other side of your mouth, today? Where do the yellows you’re always championing fit into a homogeneous work force in white societies?

      The thing is, rich people don’t really care about the working class. They’ve adopted leftism to get what they want, not to help the working man. If anything, they want to step on the working man, not help him. Once they have their squabbling masses to manipulate, they’ll drop the leftist facade.

      • JohnEngelman

        I agree with you that most rich people do not care about the working class. I disagree that they have moved to the left. They have moved to the right because they are the only people who really benefit from lower taxes and less government.

  • Liberals always write these things after the fact, when they were in power they destroy, support White genocide. Look what these types did to Rhodesia, 35. Years later they want to get published expressing some deep thoughts that maybe all the changes they worked for in Rhodesia/Zimbabwe didn’t work out so well. I hope this guy gets lst in a Paki Muslim no go zone for Whitesand never makes it out. LOL

    This article warrants 10 pinocchios and 10 pants on fire awards. “The problem with mass immigration is that, without integration, it damages the internal solidarity of a country such as ours.” Actually, the real damage is done to the argument that mass immigration, multiculturalism, multiracialism, aka “diversity” is our “strength”. Since there is now an acknowledgement that that concept is a fallacy, and that the only way to make it “work” is for these disparate(diverse) elements to come together(integrate, assimilate, miscegenate), how do you sustain “diversity”? The answer is, YOU DON’T. You cannot have “diversity” AND a cohesive society. It is impossible. The argument “diversity is our strength” is the biggest lie ever perpetrated. Thus, the perfect score on my “Lie-o-Meter”.

      You’ve pointed out a fantastic paradox. Indeed, as any child who plays with paint soon discovers, when you mix all the colors together you get brown.

      So which is more desirable?

      A fragmented mosaic or a brown canvass? As of 2013, the “White canvass” doesn’t appear to be an option for any Western society, save Belarus and the Baltics.

      • IKantunderstand

        I choose neither. Neither is more desirable. I don’t like things muddied. Not a fan of fragmentation. Why do you only propose two choices? I know what is most desirable. Which, according to the rules of English grammar(do we still observe those, by the way?) includes more than two choices.

        • zWsA

          I merely restated the very dichotomy you so eloquently pointed out (diversity/multiculturalism vs. integration, assimilation, and miscegenation).

          I never claimed they are the only options (that would be a false dichotomy) but they are the logical poles of possibility. Any real-world outcome would likely fall somewhere in between.

          Mexico is a fairly good example of an attempt at the “Brown canvass” strategy for social cohesion. Unfortunately, after 500 years of miscegenation, the results are not impressive.

          Most Western societies ostensibly embrace the “mosaic” strategy in the name of “diversity” which has posed its own set of challenges, as the article by David Goodhart makes clear. South Africa is also in the mosaic category and it’s arguably one of the worst places a White person could live on this planet. Of course, it makes a differences which colors dominate the “mosaic.”

    Why do liberals not demand that asian countries allow mass immigration into their countries? Answer…because the asians know it causes the destruction of society.

    • Svigor

      Because that would be like the Wizard of Oz telling Dorothy to pull back the curtain.

  • Luis

    The writer says, “The state cannot force people to integrate”…
    Oh, yeah??
    If they didn’t expect mass immigration, when they passed the 1948 Nationality Act, then why TF did they enact that legislation in the first place?
    The sad part is, when this country overhauled its immigration policy in 1965, Hart, Cellar and Kennedy learned absolutely NOTHING from the British experience.

    • ms_anthro

      I’d say on the contrary, they watched, learned, and acted accordingly.

      The Hart-Cellar Act was an open act of treason against the indigenous citizens of the USA, which was until that point a White, Christian, Western country, not the fragmented hodgepodge disaster we’re forced to live in today. They knew exactly what they were doing. They wanted this.

  • Fed Up

    I suspect a better question to ask would be: “WHY ARE WHITE NATIONS SO DESPERATELY ANXIOUS TO DESTROY THEIR CULTURE AND HERITAGE?” Allowing unchecked immigration is tantamount to committing national suicide. As we stupid Americans have learned the hard way.

  • Tostig FitzHerbert

    This problem will never be solved politically, unfortunately there is only one other way. Churchill said ”Take action as soon as you can, it will get harder and bloodier the longer you leave it.

    One of the problems with politically correct Whites who want mass immigration and are for a multiracial society is that they are really quite arrogant and paternalistic. White liberals REALLY think that White, liberal, secular, marxist society is superior over all others and that all the poor, backwards non-Whites of the world who live in inferior societies and are inferior must be given a chance to have a better life, If these libs really believed non-Whites were equal, they wouldn’t be trying to bring them into our countries, they’d say they need to get busy and make their own societies sucessful but they don’t because they don’t really believe they are capable of it, thus the paternalism comes in and we the superiors must help the backwards ones have a better life. What White libs don’t get is that non-Whites in other societies do NOT feel inferior, quite the opposite, they feel their society is superior to White marxist, they just come to make more money. Mexicans are perfectly happy with their country and feel it is superior, Muslims feel secular societies are NOT equal.
    I remember when I was a young teen, like any teen, I was had a youthful naive view of the world. I thought the world was really just one giant “wanna be America”. I felt that all these poor, 3rd world people were just dying to be “American” and have our culture and live our “dream”. I had some international students in my high school but not many. Whites in other nations feel the same way, the poor, backwards non-Whites of the world are dying to be the “Swedish paradise” or whatever country they’re from. It wasn’t until college that I really changed my view as I was exposed to larger numbers of foreign students. I had one African tell me he thought that justice in Texas was too lenient and he was very critical. In his African country, if a person committed a crime, the police just beat the hell out of him right there. We on the other hand waste our time on trials for people we know are guilty. He thought HIS was was superior. I remember a Pakistani who told me that “democracy may be ok for America but it doesn’t work everywhere”. People from India who believed arranged marriages were the way to go, “the parents should choose as they are older and wiser, love comes later.” Mexicans who thought bribery was ok, after all in America, you have to pay fees to get things done, what’s the difference. A bribe is quicker and faster, same thing. As I said, I grew up and see reality. Liberal Whites don’t and still believe in their silly fantasies.
    Non-Whites come to these nations for economic reasons only. What stupid White libs don’t get is that they don’t think their cultures are inferior, they often think “White culture” in whatever country is inferior. They feel they are the superior ones and find Whites weak and stupid for allowing them to take advantage of us because they would certainly never allow it in their country. Only White liberals believe in multculturalism, no non-White group does.

  • rebelcelt

    Much of this happened by accident. When the 1948 Nationality Act was passed—giving all citizens of the Empire and Commonwealth the right to live and work in Britain—it was not expected that the ordinary people of poor former colonies would arrive in their hundreds of thousands.

    Nor was it expected after 1997 that a combination of quite small decisions would lead to 1.5 million East Europeans arriving, about half to settle. But come they did, and a net immigration of around four million foreign-born citizens since 1997 has produced easily the most dramatic demographic revolution in British history.
    Yeah yeah yeah, I bet a lot of average working class stiffs predicted it. You still do not nderstand what nations are you pompous educated nitwit.

  • Bobby

    Too little, and far to late. Lefist ideology has ruined every nation that was majority white. I can’t even understand how any caucasian can stand in the presence of a leftist, no matter who/she is and not BARF, GET SICK, LOSE THEIR LUNCH.
