White Flight: Diversity Extremes Push Londoners’ Exodus

Russia Today, June 2, 2013

Growing ethnic tension is leading to the white population shrinking in some parts of the UK, including the British capital. RT’s Sara Firth has more on the exodus–and what else might be behind it.

    Bizarre to think that the capital of one the greatest white empires ever will now be non-white. The only way something like that would have been achieved historically is if that capitol and those people were conquered. Seems like conquering is exactly what’s happening to Europeans without many realizing it.

    • Mark Hillyard

      It’s been common in history for a nation to resist invasion, and yes, even using guns and stuff like that.
      Today the idiots in charge welcome them, feed them, clothe them, house them, and give them free medical care. What more could an enemy want?
      When Jesus said “If your enemy thirst’s give him a cup of water.” He didn’t say act stupid and give your country to them. He did order Christians to “Sell your coat” and buy a weapon.
      If you have captured enemies you are required to feed and water them, not set them up in good health and return them to the front lines!!!!
      It’s mental…as in retarded.

      • Steve33

        These so called idiots know exactly what they’re doing. They want to destroy white culture. These Marxist one worlders control the media and the goverrnemt. Idiots couldn’t accomplish this. Only way to stop this is to corral the media vermin. Government types will then fall in line with the will of the people. Simple solution.

        Those scriptures refer to the needy, not people who want to quit the whole work thing and hop into welfare.

        • World_War_Me

          More like, HIP hop into welfare.

      The United States is the most powerful state to ever exist on this planet. In the capital city of this nation, the people that govern it cannot walk the streets at night without expecting to be beaten, robbed, or killed.

      • Sick of it

        They CAN due to the armed guards that travel with them and the fact that the gangs that terrorize other people in D.C. are afraid of what they can bring. Regular people are screwed (often literally).

      The only difference between John Lennon and Vladimir Lenin was the spelling of their surnames and vocation.

        Lennon had a more interesting fashion sense. Damn hardcore communists and their boring apparel!

          Its a tragedy that such a good musician didn’t use his fame for the welfare of the Anglisch.

        • StillModerated

          Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we’re being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I’m liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That’s what’s insane about it.

          OK that’s Lennon’s only good quote! But he liked Reagan.

          Yeah, but it’s making a comeback through hipsters.

    • Morris LeChat

      I think the left in Britain will someday pay a terrible price for what they have done. I think Tony Blaire has a sense of what is coming and his latest statement about “SOME” moslems being a problem was a way of trying to save himself. It won’t work , the left in Britain will most surely be wiped out some day, certainly elitists like Blaire and his family will be.

  • I think Sara Firth needs to be replaced by a diversity. Let’s see how see how she likes it.

    Where are you British cowards going to run to? Scotland? Queen Elizabeth the First would not approve of what’s going on here, even if her inferior namesake does.

    I hear Greenland could use some people. You ought to be safe there for a little while until diversity follows you there too.

    • So CAL Snowman

      Where are we American cowards going to run to? The Pacific Northwest, Canada, maybe the Arctic circle perhaps? I do not understand why fellow White Nationalists berate and insult other White nations. ALL White nations have the same common enemy and problems.

      • Jesse James

        I am not running anywhere. I am a native Georgian and I was born in this state and I will stay here and make my life come what may. Time for us all to stop running, there is nowhere to go and we are only encouraging our enemies. It is white cowardice demonstrated by fifty years of never ending white flight that has encouraged the darker races to pour into our country. They don’t believe we have the will to resist their invasion. I am not advocating race war, I am saying it is time to stop welcoming our own racial replacement and slow motion genocide. Stand up in your Church and explain to the congregation why you refuse to contribute to foreign missions or efforts to reach out to the immigrant community. Email your congressmen regularly with anti-immigration letters. Demand to speak to an American when you are shuffled over to some foreign customer service rep. Stand your ground at the mall and on our sidewalks and roads, don’t step out of the way for an invader. Use your imagination, it is time to say enough, and for the sake of civilization and sanity mow your own damned yard.

      • Richard from Vancouver

        I don’t think we’re cowards, but we certainly must organize. I feel our total displacement may be inevitable. It’s rather a similar case to closing the barn door after the horses have bolted. You are certainly welcome here in the Canadian, Pacific Northwest. Afterall, it is my opinion there are no two more similar people in the world as Americans and Canadians. White, English speaking enclaves with traditional European/North American values seem to be the route for the future. No one wants to be displaced from their homeland, but when our governments are enacting this displacement by their CM policies we can either re-group and redefine or engage in some form of armed insurrection. We have already lost too many young, white men to wars; I advocate the latter.

        • Jesse James

          I agree with you that the term “cowards” is incorrect. I think it is sensible for families with young children to move away from areas plagued by violence, criminality and hostile non-whites. In the early days (remember Boston anyone?) whites did protest and work to prevent being driven out of their neighborhoods in the city but all levels of the government worked against their efforts and criminalized their attempts to maintain their culture and civilization itself.

      I saw a YouTube clip where the Iceland government was allowing Palestinian muslim refugees into their country and giving them free houses and satellite television, so they could keep in touch with their homeland.

        Insanity. I was reading an article here on AmRen about how the Icelandic crime rate was really low.

      I generally agree with your post, however, Scotland is still part of Britain. You should have typed “Where are you English cowards…..” This may sound like a minor point, but it doesn’t make us look educated if we can’t get simple things like this correct.

    • Justin Time

      Further to my earlier post, Britain (or UK, same thing) comprises England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

      • Sick of it

        In all fairness, this was started in England. It took longer for the powers that be to break down everyone else.

    • Pat

      If being anti British makes you feel better (your ancestors must be spinning) – go ahead, but why do you come on an American site with these negative comments?

      There are clues in the video of the problems that need facing. The first male interviewee, a Lebanese baker, does not see himself as the main problem, instead he blames East Europeans (he has picked this up from the MSM by the way), the second interviewee, Jon Yates, is the classic liberal, he says…’it is not a race problem it is age and finances’ – deluded beyond belief. Should we not be able to solve these problems I look forward to seeing you in Greenland.

      P.S. Sara Firth is employed by Russia Today who have of late become very diverse.

    • David Ashton

      Withdrawing our children from potential miscegenation zones is not cowardice but simple prudence.

    “Muslims bring more diversity than Londoners bargained for.”

    Did the Londoners even ask for this kind of diversity? I’m not from the UK, but I have a hard time believing that they really wanted this.

  • The__Bobster


    We were never asked about this. Back in the 1950s when immigration first started coming – in not particularly huge numbers, just in the thousands – and people were complaining then, we were told: Look, the numbers are very small, it doesn’t matter, the numbers are so small it will have no impact on your lives. Then the numbers got bigger and we were then told: Look, all right the numbers are bigger but they’re going to integrate, so you have nothing to worry about. Then the numbers became huge, and they said: Well all right, they’re not going to integrate there’s too many of them, we’ll introduce this new ideology, we’ll call it multiculturalism, and they can have their separate lives, you can have your separate lives and we’ll all get on very well together.

    Now the numbers are so huge, we are being told that we must celebrate this, we must celebrate this diversity, this racial and cultural diversity.

    Douglas Murray a few months ago came up with a fantastic example of this. He said: At what point in diversity can we stop celebrating it? When we become sixty percent of the population, maybe we should still be celebrating our cultural and racial diversity, but when we become forty percent, are we supposed to celebrate that? When we become ten percent, are we really expected to celebrate that? And of course the answer is no, we should not.

    We were never asked. And now, finally, if you don’t celebrate the left liberal version of multicultural/ racial utopia they will come round if you complain about it, and they will lock you up for inciting racial and religious hatred.

      Read that article -Brilliant. It’s about Britain, but it might as well be about Sweden, America, Germany, Romania, France, Poland, Greece, Italy, Belgium, or any other white country. A must-read.

    • David Ashton

      Douglas Murray may be a pro-Israeli gay, but he is more outspoken and accurate on the main “equality and diversity” nightmare than most. Only Leo McKinstry beats him to it, though Rod Liddle and Melanie Phillips are fairly close.

  • guest

    I love stories like this.

    The English people have held on to London and have defended it against almost all attacks. The Romans took it, and the Normans took it in 1066. The Germans couldn’t take it.

    And now, a small number of impoverished, disorganized, almost-unarmed peasants from half way around the world have achieved what Hitler, Stalin, Napoleon, and many lesser adversaries could not achieve.

    The British are such cowardly nobodies, they deserve it.

    • T_Losan

      You can call the English many things but cowardly isn’t one. Particularly those in the 40-60 age range.

      • guest

        How exactly are they not cowards? Did these invaders come in with superior weapons? Great organization? Higher intelligence? Lots of money? Advanced technology? What did these invaders have that allowed them to force native English out of their capitol city of the past 2,000 years?

        I can tell you what it was: native Britons were afraid to fight, even with actions as simple and anonymous as voting. So tell me what these allegedly non-cowardly English are doing now? The video says they are resorting to “white flight” which means “running away”.

        • T_Losan

          If labeling the English cowards does something for your self esteem, be my guest. Remember though that the USA was founded by whites who decided to run away.

        • David Ashton

          What do you really know about us “native English” or what really happened, and exactly how and why it happened, incrementally, over the last 60 years?

          Voting for whom? Which main UK party kept its election promises effectively to curb immigration, or whose leaders even had accurate statistics from our left-infiltrated civil service? How could the deliberate, concealed flooding operation by New Labour, elected for other reasons, have been stopped in its tracks?

          Your generalizations about “our island race” are as ignorant as they are contemptible, but no doubt our fellow-Anglo-Saxon critics in the USA can tell us what exemplary progress they are making over their own “unarmed invasion” and local ethnic cleansing, with “simple and anonymous voting” for the Democrat or Republican leadership.

          Several books on the British multicultural immigration problem spell out how the deceptions were foisted on an electorate and reinforced by legislation, and even the pro-immigration periodical “Patterns of Prejudice” recently published a pretty candid article detailing what happened. The promoters of “equality and diversity” were never short of “great organization” or of “lots of money”. But the story is far too complicated for nasty little minds like yours.

          • Thank goodness for some common sense. To compare a sudden act of warfare or invasion with that of what has taken place just shows their own incapacity to understand the mechanisms by which this state of affairs has been established.

      • eduard

        One cannot forget what these cowardly Sassenach scum did to the Boers in southern Africa during the Anglo Boer War, 1899 – 1902. And during the vote for a republic in 1960, they again voted against the country becoming a republic.

        • David Ashton

          My late father was born during the South African war, fought alongside South African volunteers in WW1, and none of my generation, my children’s generation or my grandchildren’s generation has any responsibility for the 1902 war against the Afrikaners which you “cannot forget”.

          I personally resent being described as (1) “cowardly” (2) “Sassenach” and (3) “scum”, especially as an active member – with English, Welsh, Scots and Afrikaners – of the South Africa Society in London, which defended Dr Verwoerd even more vigorously than his United Party opposition.

          Anyone would think US politicians had nothing to do with the surrender of South Africa to the ANC, or fate of Rhodesia and Angola.

          • Morris LeChat

            The US , Jimmy Carter and the Democrat Party in Particular, shares an enormous amount of responsibility for what happened.

    The video of London today looks like a movie set created to show a dystopian science fiction version of London in the future, but it’s no movie set. The only thing missing in the video are David Icke’s shapeshifting reptilians. By the way, he claims that the Royal Family and the British government’s leaders are cruel, heartless reptilians. I’m starting to become a believer because whoever created modern London’s diversity has no heart, no normal feelings. British leaders are souless creatures, not human as I understand the word.

    • David Ashton

      Icke thinks they are really “reptilians” who came from outer space via Lost Lemuria.
      If anyone has given conspiracy fact a bad name, it is Icke.

    All we non-liberal whites know what Islam is about, invade, conquer, submit and enslave all to their insane, misogynistic faith of Islam, that a global caliphate can materialize and the world remain forever at war, Muslim and his hate, against Muslim and his hate.

    Here in America we not only have the problem of Muslims but also the blacks and the browns.

    Behind and causing the loser minorities problems is their lower IQ and failure to mature. Unfortunately, it is our white liberals who aid these losers at our white collectives expense.

    White liberals are either the immature, great unwashed flock, or the megalomaniacal, narcissistic God-complexed shepherds, who clearly are shepherding us on down into the death of our Founding Fathers wealth culture, and most unfortunately, a melding of our white gene pool to those loser minorities gene pools.

    Everywhere in the white European world, GB, Europe, NA and Australia, the tragedy of white liberals is destroying our white gene pool/race, just as beached whales beach themselves.

    Obviously the time approaches for a secessionary movement, whereby non-liberal whites separate out and away from the white liberals and their allies, the blacks, browns and Islamics, and forge a new Republic that simply outlaws the group from the beginning.
    Unbelievably, we don’t need them, they need us, but we will not separate away from them, usually we just run in the white flight response to white liberal diversity ideology and its manifestations.
    This post by “From the Sanctuary-The PDK Herald/Crier Project”, thank you.

    • Sick of it

      Our society has become so integrated that most people work for other people (not free landowners working their own land as it used to be). We do not control the means of production (in any sense, private or collective). We are at the mercy of those who own property and the major owners are behind these schemes.

      So a peaceful separation is impossible…it would necessarily be revolutionary in nature for economic reasons and because they wouldn’t let us leave. The new state could not live off of mercenary adventures like Prussia once did as the entire world is integrated in a multicultural world system that would not hire us.

      Really would be nice if the perpetrators of this world system were killed off en masse so the entire world could be free, but that’s not likely to happen since the terrorists of the world work FOR them.

      I’m not advocating violence, just pointing out certain depressing facts.

    • David Ashton

      The “Marxist-Lennonists” of the 1960s have made themselves the entrenched nomenklatura of politics and media. They accuse those of us who remember, even as children the pleasanter country of the mid-1950s, of “nostalgia” for a world that “never existed” (unfortunately for them it does, on film), but continue to “celebrate” the 1960s like perpetual adolescents. The attempt to replace chronological British history from schools with value-laded topics on “Hitler and the Holocaust”, “Genocide in North America”, “Evils of Apartheid” etc has not been entirely successful, and English children still have an interest in their parents and grandparents, and their memories. But there is still “tragedy in the spectacle”.

      We still have a hard fight on our hands, but can win it. Meanwhile, we can do without sneering abuse from “white” contributors to AmRen about the British being “cowardly scum”, etc.

      • Sick of it

    • Steven Bannister

      As an American who’s always wanted to visit London – but never got the chance – I feel very cheated. By transforming London in a multicultural mosaic, the globalists have DESTROYED the unique charming qualities that made London so attractive in the first place!

      I see nations and big cities as “living museums” that enrich the world by providing a slice of unique history and culture to those foreigners who VISIT those nations and cities. In other words, an ENGLISH London belongs to the WHOLE WORLD as a place to “go see English people” just as a Japanese Tokyo belongs to the whole world. As a traveler / adventurer, I don’t want to visit Tokyo and see Mexicans! I want to see Japanese people!

      From a FINANCIAL STANDPOINT ONLY you would think these billionaires would realize they are losing invaluable pieces of real estate. Property values in an increasingly Muslim England are going to start dropping like a rock.

    When I was 19, I took a cab from Heathrow Airport into downtown London and could not contain my surprise and delight, for on the streets of this storied city everywhere were tall fair haired and eyed people who looked just like me! I had never experienced being in some majority ethnically in NJ where I grew up. That was some time ago. It was in the last few years that I realized there was nowhere in the world to run that I became a ‘militant.’

  • Again the left wing conclusion they come to at the end of the video is, integration isn’t working because apparently it isn’t enough to invite the hungry to eat at your table, the hungry have to sit at the head of the table and have at least the same proportion of food as everyone else.
    No advantages or ‘privileges’ for those who came before.

    The fact is, the more aliens that arrive, the less they need to learn the local culture and language as birds of a feather stick together, everyone that is except us (we didn’t know what we had until we lost it) White people.

    Just how many of the recent terrorists were raised if not born, in the countries that they attacked such as the 07/07 bombers, the Boston bombers, Fort Hood shooter or the drummer Rigby beheader (without even researching).

    It seems that everyone barring correct thinking Whites, is foreseeing that race wars are going to be inevitable in the not too distant future (50 years max), after we’ve fed and enabled our enemies to breed their armies to sufficient numbers.

    Then our descendants (in whatever form they take), will be lucky to the get the scraps from the table that the White man built.

  • Kevin Vail

    The cancer of leftism has metastasized and is now in stage 4. The host will be dead very soon. Westerners have murdered their children by the millions, miseducated the few they had and embraced perversions of all types. They have worshiped at the altar of Mammon for too long, God will not be mocked.

    • Hal K

      Third World immigration isn’t caused by “worshiping Mammon.” It is caused by whites not looking out for their group interests, and more specifically not restricting Third World immigration. It is pretty simple. If you let them come, they will. The solution is to promote white solidarity, not to talk about “Mammon.”

      • Persona Non Grovel

        It has EVERYTHING to do with Mammon. Material wealth and greed, unfriendliness to our own kind, cut-throat business practices, extremely high interest rates on credit. Housing collapse and unscrupulous lending practices… These are just some of the ugly things going on in the world today, ESPECIALLY in the West. If we don’t change our course of action, and soon, we, as a European based people and society, will vanish. Since we are around 600 million and the 3rd worlders are 5 to 6 times that, we need to preserve the West as we know it.

        • Hal K

          Mammon traditionally means wealth and greed. This is not at the root of our problem. Moreover, our problem is not just unfriendliness to our own kind specifically. Our problem is that, at the group level, we try to lift up nonwhites at the expense of whites. I think you are focusing on the symptoms rather than the underlying cause.

  • I don’t understand how the fact that the capital city of the United Kingdom is majority non-White is not scandalous enough to force a major re-evaluation of the phenomenon of immigration. Britons are really brainwashed.

    • Steven Bannister

      It happened gradually, in stages- that’s how the Globalists got away with it.

      First they saturated the West with DECADES of egalitarian propaganda and took great pains to depict any person with racial concerns to be a cruel person of low intelligence.

      Then, once those memes were firmly implanted in our brains, they began to open the borders bit by bit.

      • Mentious

        Good analysis. Yep, that’s what they did basically.

      • Laager

        Who stands to gain out of this – giving the country away?
        When the Brits did this to Rhodesia / Zimbabwe, all their other colonies and played a major role in dispossessing white South Africans it was all about “returning the countries to their authentic indigenous populations”
        Now they actively work at taking their own country away from their own people by importing aliens.

  • IKantunderstand

    Let us all say a prayer for the U.K. The greatest country ever in the history of the world. The empire where the sun never set. The English, the leaders in so many ways. In fact, the Founding Fathers of the United (for now) States of America were English. So smart, so clever. So enlightened, and now so endarkened. I pray to God that there is enough fighting DNA left in the current indigenous population. And I pray to God that Americans, also have enough warrior DNA left.

    How many more no-go areas do whites need before they stop all this “diversity” nonsense?

  • KenelmDigby

    In the not too distant future, there will be vanishingly few White Britons actually left in London.
    It will resemble a rather nasty hybrid between Lagos, Karachi and New York City – a city torn between black and brown, (who will duke it out for surpremacy), with a smattering of non-British Euro-Whites.
    Of course London is the seat of the British monarchy and the British Government besides being the World’s financial hub and a huge tourist and retail center.
    – That is the big question. Will the monarchy and Govenment actually remain in a city that is destined to become a deeply unpleasant, violent, chaotic horrible hell-hole or will they ‘re-locate’. Will the City remain put?, will Oxford Street keep going?
    It is always assumed that these things will remain and endure,but yet the hellishness of future London life will make their existence untenable to say the least.

    • David Ashton

      Quite recently I traveled from Norwich to Brighton and back by train, via several London rail stations. White travelers (not workers) were a small minority among the multiple ethnicities, and children of Nordic appearance almost non-existent. We shall have to take a leaf out of Chairman Mao’s book about the countryside reconquering the colonized cities (without guns of course, I had better add).

The communist propaganda has simply shifted westwards to the Anglosphere and EU communications outlets.
