In a 2009 essay for the for the London Evening Standard titled “Don’t listen to the whingers — London needs immigrants,” former Tony Blair speechwriter and Labour Party advisor Andrew Neather famously likened his government’s immigration policy to a dog owner rubbing the disobedient pooch’s nose in shit:
. . . mass immigration was the way that the Government was going to make the UK truly multicultural. I remember coming away from some discussions with the clear sense that the policy was intended — even if this wasn’t its main purpose — to rub the Right’s nose in diversity and render their arguments out of date.
Stubbornly unattractive British conservative pundit Melanie Phillips inferred from Neather’s comments that the Labour Party’s immigration policy “was done to destroy forever what it means to be culturally British and to put another ‘multicultural’ identity in its place. And it was done without telling or asking the British people whether they wanted their country and their culture to be transformed in this way.”
The British people are having their noses rubbed in diversity again — but this time, the Conservative Party is doing it.
Newly sworn-in British Prime Minister Liz Truss — whose surname conjures unpleasant images of a hernia-containment device and whose face resembles that of a bird that has undergone extensive cosmetic reconstructive surgery after having its face pecked apart by other birds — has replaced the perpetually disheveled white male Boris Johnson.
The press has gone gaga with glee at the fact that for the first time in English history, no white men will be occupying the country’s four “great offices of state”:
The Times: “Great offices of state set to contain no white men”
Liz Truss is preparing to appoint the first cabinet in history in which none of the great offices of state will be held by a white man.
Bloomberg: Truss’s UK Cabinet Is First With No White Men in Biggest Jobs
Liz Truss’s new government will be the UK’s first without a White man holding one of the so-called four great offices of state. . . . The incoming premier named Kwasi Kwarteng as Chancellor of the Exchequer, making him Britain’s first Black finance minister. Suella Braverman, who is of Indian heritage, was appointed home secretary, while James Cleverly, who identifies as mixed race, was assigned the role of top diplomat as foreign secretary.
The Daily Mail: Liz Truss puts finishing touches to diverse new Government: No place for white men in great offices of state . . .
“None of the great offices of state are set to be held by a white man in her plan….It will be the first time in history for chancellor, foreign and home secretary roles….Liz Truss will become prime minister tomorrow and is expected to appoint a Cabinet featuring no white men in the great offices of state for the first time.
Axios: “U.K. Prime Minister Truss’ cabinet is first without white men in top jobs”
New British Prime Minister Liz Truss began to unveil her cabinet on Tuesday, and for the first time ever there will be no white men in any of the U.K.’s four “Great Offices of State.” . . . Truss . . . named Kwasi Kwarteng as treasury secretary, James Cleverly as foreign secretary and Suella Braverman as home secretary — filling out the senior-most cabinet posts. . . . All three are the children of immigrants. Kwarteng’s parents moved to the U.K. from Ghana, Braverman’s arrived from Kenya and Mauritius (though both are of Indian ancestry), and Cleverly’s mother emigrated from Sierra Leone. . . . Like Truss, they are all on the right flank of the Conservative Party. Some commentators have contended that Truss will lead the most right-wing government in recent history.
Whoa — “the most right-wing government in recent history” will have zero white males in the top slots! This implies that being “right wing” has nothing to do with being a white male. And as much guff and bunkum as I’m going to get for saying it, I tend to agree with this premise. I can anticipate some of you carping that the true Right wing is inextricably intertwined with both whiteness and maleness. But the very term “Right wing” is a purely subjective social construct that cannot be quantified, whereas a DNA test can determine your European ancestry. A chromosome test can definitively declare whether you’re a male or female.
And if you’re someone who can be verified through modern science to be both white and male, I feel compelled to tell you that neither the Right nor the Left has your interests in mind. I’m not denying that the demon scourge of Evil White Maleness is an extremely political topic; I’m saying that the idiotically simplistic Left/Right political binary is designed to undermine white males from both ends. Both sides are actively hostile to your interests, so it might serve you to stop looking at things in terms of “Left and Right” and more in terms of “male and white.”
On Tuesday, the disgraced white male Boris Johnson tendered his resignation to Queen Elizabeth. Shortly thereafter, Liz Truss visited the fossilized lady monarch and was formally and magically “approved” as Prime Minister, or whatever silly name the English use to label the process of transferring power. But it was two women — two white women — who transferred the power this time.
Truss then appointed three non-white children of immigrants as chancellor, home secretary, and foreign secretary. I’m assuming that in ten years, they’ll be appointing sweaty, disease-addled refugees fresh off the boat to top government positions, but even England’s leaders probably realize that such a blatant display of genetic replacement would be pushing things at this point.
But make no mistake about it: This will be a completely conservative government with tried-and-true conservative principles. According to the Associated Press, Truss “named a top team diverse in gender and ethnicity, but loyal to her and her free-market politics.”
Boris Johnson was no slouch in appointing non-whites, either; his three chancellors, including Rishi Sunak, Truss’ opponent in the scramble to find Johnson’s replacement, were all non-white. Johnson also featured non-white females such as Priti Patel and Suella Braverman in his cabinet. In the British version of “Democrats are the real racists,” the Conservative Party has been claiming all the way back to Margaret Thatcher that they offer more “diverse” candidates than Labour does.
While campaigning for prime minister, Truss described herself as a libertarian who will cut corporate taxes and “govern as a conservative.” She said that intangibles such as freedom and personal responsibility “resonate with the British people.” She ticks off all the “conservative” checkboxes. It’s the same corny bullshit you’ve heard from American Republicans for generations.
Truss is also a warmonger who has called for a “global NATO” and said she’s “ready” to start a nuclear war.
No woman should ever be near nuclear weapons. Especially a white woman who may be harboring deep-seated resentments toward white men. Especially a spiteful white woman named after a hernia belt.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan, widely lauded for becoming the first Muslim mayor of a major Western capital, openly expresses resentment toward white men. In 2016, while running for mayor, Khan said that there were too many white men working for London’s transport authority. In 2021, he said that “There’s no good reason why 65% of people working in science and engineering should be white men . . . we’re working on fixing it.”
Apparently this is why the British fought the Nazis, right? So England could be “fixed” to the point where there isn’t a white male to be found among its top four governmental officials and the mayor of its largest city.
A mere hundred years ago, England had the largest empire in world history in terms of land mass — over a quarter of all terra firma on the planet.
And then the guilt started leaching, drip by drip, into the public consciousness. It coincided as the immigrants began arriving one by one.
As recently as 1981, the white percentage of the English population was 95.4%. According to the most recently available census reports — from 2011 — that quotient has dropped to 85.4%. Over the same 30-year time span, the percentage of “Asians” in England — which includes everyone from Turkey in the West to Japan in the East — has more than tripled from 2.3% to 7.8%. India and Pakistan are, respectively, the #1 and #3 sources of foreign-born groups in the United Kingdom. The results of the UK’s 2021 census won’t be released until October or November of this year, but it’s probably safe to assume that the percentage of whites has slipped in the past ten years.
According to an analysis of the saliva I spit into a small vial and sent to 23andme, 95.5% of my DNA derives from County Dublin and Greater London. The English and Irish admixture means I’m always at war with myself. It’s profoundly sad to see this happen to my ancestral homeland.
And they’re rubbing my nose in it. From both sides.
