Racist rant or signs of the times...
For the sake of political correctness, one must start by saying that obviously this behaviour is no longer acceptable in public, and probably soon not allowable even in private!
The following video has GRAPHIC CONTENT in that it shows a woman who looks to be drunk, pouring abuse at the fellow travellers on her train.
What she out pours is possibly something that has been felt by any native member of a society that has been swamped by foreigners.
The sense that they have lost all control over their country and are now subjected to minority concerns over and above their own needs and aspirations.
The woman concerned was identified and arrested, and as the law stands that was correct, she did transgress boundaries that are now disallowed and illegal.
But the fact remains that I suspect the vast majority of working class English citizens have these thoughts in their heads, especially if they live in a major city, where the immigrant population are more predominant and visible.
That is something that legislation can never deal with, the inherent animosity that an indigenous population feel when they perceive that their country has been 'occupied' by 'alien' (to them) groups or invaders (as they are seen to be).
The woman was undoubtedly fortunate not to have been assaulted or killed, when this video would have formed part of the evidence that would be used in trial over her assailant.
Would the assailant have been found guilty or not?
Was this woman's rant sufficiently abrasive to warrant her death had just ONE knife wielding opponent been on that train?
Thankfully we will never know as she survived the incident, but we do know that getting drunk and speaking your mind is no longer possible in England.
Free speech is no longer possible, we have now curtailed the right to speak freely, no matter how offensive what we say may be seen to be by others.
I am sad about that.
It means that the populace will bottle up those thoughts no longer permitted to be spoken, and that at some point in time, possibly very soon, those thoughts could become collective action, not just words spoken in anger and regretted later when reason returned.
The society we have created these last 50 years in the UK is a volatile mix of ethnic groups who unfortunately have in many cases been encouraged to retain their ethnic identity and not required to assimilate into the culture and traditions of their host country.
Whilst there is no need for immigrants to forsake their ethnic identity, religions and traditions, there should be a need for those same immigrants to at least respect the host countries culture, religious beliefs and traditions.
Racial harmony, if that is truly possible, can only survive when we accept that being a resident in a country other than that of our birth is a privilege, not to be abused by demanding that our host country changes to meet our requirements.
I have lived 'abroad' for 26 years out of my 60 years alive, and respect that in Spain, where I first was allowed to live, and in Malaysia, where I currently reside, the native indigenous population hold the rights, and I hold privileges extended by those people.
Maybe the UK needs to reappraise their social policies regarding both free speech and the rights of immigrants before the English people rise up to deal with what they see as a problem for themselves.
Better to have open discussion and even heated arguments in the streets, than bloodshed.
BTW it looks like the video has been removed from this hub, not sure whose censorship that was/is, but it is censorship, you can find the rant, if you wish, by Googling:
Unless and until they also censor that.
Tolerance, so much demanded, needs also to be shown by those who demand it.
