This picture (above) was taken in London from a campaign from the Home Office in 2015, but it still has relevancy to this article.
As usual I’m writing this because people have annoyed me with their small narrow-minded one sided views. They refuse to look at the greater picture.
Okay, so the response to the above picture is that it is racist to say what is wrote on that van. That’s correct, they say it’s racist! What? To deport people who are in our country illegally is racist? Let’s take a look at this. I went to Indonesia for a month and the Indonesian Embassy stated that if I stayed longer than my Visa would allow I would have fines. Those fines stop after a while and then go into prison time and then deportation without further admittance into the country thereafter. The Prison sentence would be years. Now, I imagine that’s the same all over the world, yet nobody calls them racist. Here in the UK we’re simply saying go home. The clue is in the word “‘ILLEGAL.” If you break the law, you should be punished, if you make an exception for one then you set a standard which invites anarchy, regardless of race, religion, ect.
There are a lot of problems in western society. We seem to be determined to bounce hopelessly from each end of the scale instead of keeping a balance. On the one hand you’ve got governments who give more help to foreigners than their own people. And then on the opposite end you have nationals who are treated like second class citizens in their own country. This is why people vote for leaders like Donald Trump. Not because they’re racist, but because they’re tired of the injustice. I would be too. There is a balanced alternative.
You can’t say that one person is more valuable than another. Whether they’re black or white, Muslim or Jew, rich or poor, we’re all valuable or non of us are. We should all have the same rules applied to us without the fear of being branded in any way.
I heard a story that is growing more important by the day. Of which, will emphasise my point. There were two boys who lived next to each other in the UK, one was black, named Jason, the other white, named Graeme. They hated each other and fought like young boys do. One day the Jason called him a “White trailer park piece of shit.” Graeme’s mother called the Police and she was told that they wouldn’t do anything. The next day, Graeme decided to get his own back and called Jason a “Negro.” The Police were informed and the lad was arrested.
This is the issue. It’s either all unacceptable, or non of it is. If you pick and choose, division will arise.
People aren’t actually annoyed at immigration. They’re annoyed by the fact that those immigrants, for whatever reason, are being treated differently and that they don’t always want to integrate within our culture and society. Some, not all, want to come to our country to change it. And understandably, native people (to whichever nation) aren’t accepting of that.
We don’t need Liberalism and we don’t need Nationalism. We need a healthy balance between Hippies and Nazis.
