A friend of mine put on a post which made me think. This was my response to his post about the rise in racism and nationalism since brexit. He seems to hold the opinion that the majority of brexit voters are haters. I did not vote to leave but easily could have.
Brexit voters are not all racists, bigots or fools. Many and by that I mean the vast majority were normal people striking out against bureaucratic control upon a ridiculous level. The EU did bring in some fabulous benefits such as the human rights act, open borders, open markets, but its ridiculous decision making and over legislation felt corrupt to many. The problem with Brexit was it was a joke for the establishment. It was never meant to happen, no way was boris and letwat ever supposed to win. Even boris looked like a startled cat when he did. The big problem was that brexit was the position the racists, nationalists, far right, whatever you want to call them naturally took. You now have a government being run by not only a woman that believes this gives her a mandate to hate, to focus upon the vulnerable, but a press and media that backs her up.
Its that attitude we need to fight, brexit was nota mandate to the right at all, many socialists believed in it, many people thought it a vote of no confidence in the Tories, some even I am sure just voted ‘out’ because it was that funny and affable fool off ‘Have I got news for you’.
There is a rise in hate, especially on here, but there are also far more people becoming ‘aware’ of the bias and corruption spread by the Main Stream Media (MSM) and the establishment, people questioning our role in wars, arms deals and oil, we need to build upon this and ‘fight the right, for what is right’. If the brown shirts come for any of you, I will stand by you always, as I hope will the majority of people in our county, and our world. I am a citizen of Britain and the World!
