Britain has not become racist overnight

Following the Brexit vote there has been a panic about an apparent ‘spike’ in hate crime. An increase of 57 per cent was widely reported, and, on Twitter, a new hashtag, #PostRefRacism, started trending, with tweeters listing incidents from around Britain. It seems many people, both online and offline, have had personal experience of post-Brexit, racist Britain.

Any incident of racism or xenophobia is abhorrent and should be challenged. But the speed with which Remainers have exploited this apparent surge – in what is, at this point, largely anecdotal reports – has been shameful.

      Wooohooo! Poland is fifth, even without me 😉

  • Is it racist to question the wisdom of cultural relativism?

    The battered subdued, P.C. bullied and repeatedly betrayed U.K. population under 50 just couldn’t be bothered to vote because they no longer give a rat’s arse. Why should they? They’ve been constantly lied to, and every party since Thatcher has been a socially destructive disgrace. Now comes Brexit, and out come the old folk who remember the glory of pre/post war U.K. In droves – to try to get the old pride back. I thought they were lost. I was wrong. Too late for the Muzzie invasion though. Even if it’s stopped now, there might have to be a cleansing or they will still be a big problem in the future due to sheer numbers and “The womb as a weapon” against the infidel. Glad I left. Will be watching from Canuckistan.

      It’s no better here. It will probably be even worse here in the long run.

    How is it racist to want basic national self-defense?

    Too much bad craziness these days.

    I was born in Vancouver in 1950 and I became a homophobic, islamophobic racist about 2010 when they told me that all cultures and peoples are equal except for straight white males and that I as a straight white male should accept the denigration of myself and my fellow males as our just deserts.

      It’s definitely a desert out there and I’m sorry you feel deserted;)

      BTW, how come you didn’t get the memo until 2010?

    Yeah the whole xenophobia screeching is despicable. In the meantime, the left still demands that Europeans be understanding towards the immigrants no matter much they act as etitled obnoxious pricks

    We don’t hate everyone. We just don’t want them here. There is a huge difference. I have lots of friends who I invite over as guests, I have yet to invite any of them to move into the spare bedroom and start running my house.
