‘Who controls the past…’

Recently I wrote of how the history of Britain was being re-written by the diversity-obsessed left, using the complicit media to propagate false information. As an example I cited the numerous movies and TV shows depicting blacks and Moslems showing up in the Robin Hood story, as well as a black or mulatto Guinevere in the ‘Merlin’ series of a few years ago.

Now the BBC is lying to children in its recent series about Roman Britain, in which the main purpose of the lessons seems to be to convince gullible children that Britain has always been heavily populated by blacks and other nonwhite races.

BBC lies-horzDo the propaganda merchants really believe that everyone will fall for these outlandish lies? Sadly, too many will simply accept these false representations, mostly the young, who have deliberately been maleducated and force-fed these contrived deceptions. The population across the generations have been so mind-conditioned over the last several decades that they too are slowly acquiescing and accepting what they, deep-down, must know is not true.

As of now, there are still many images of life in Britain before the onslaught of mass immigration, images showing a White Britain, with little ‘diversity’ to be seen anywhere, at least, not diversity in a racial sense. There are You Tube videos (as long as they are allowed to remain up, on politically correct You Tube) showing London, now heavily non-white, as a decidely White city. There are books with photos showing the true Britain of old, before ‘diversity’ set in.

But will such resources continue to be allowed, considering that they contradict the ‘false history’ cooked up by the UK propaganda-pushers and diversity Kommissars? I doubt it, sadly.

Here in America, some years ago (after the 2008 election) there was a story that showed up in some news outlets about some kind of government edict that all books, textbooks I believe, published before a certain year, were to be recalled from libraries, schools, and even second-hand booksellers. They were to be destroyed, and the reason given was that these old textbooks had some kind of toxic materials.(!)I’ve done internet searches to find these articles (which I blogged about back then) and come up empty. So is it being done, this destruction of old books? I suspect it is, though I can’t prove it. The local library where I live appears to have purged a lot of classic books, choosing to focus on more current popular tripe, stuff that will probably be of only passing interest, as well as buying lots of pop-culture materials like rap/hip-hop CDs and other such high culture. There is also a recent dearth of old books at the local thrift shop which used to be a real treasure-trove of old and rare books. Where are all these books going? To landfills, or to be burned, as one librarian tells on her blog. She justifies getting rid of old books because they are dated; they are too politically incorrect — for example, a book that recommends traditional female roles, or a book from long ago which states that the races have evolved unequally. Can’t have books like that around in case someone gets ideas, or starts to question the diversity dogma, and the egalitarian faith.

So the establishment, which is the left now, wants to remove the truth from the marketplace of ideas, and wants to prevent people from even dreaming of other ways of looking at things, ways that conflict with the coerced ‘diversity’ dogma that is force-fed to us and our children.

And not being satisfied with that, they want to erase the past and replace it with this grotesque parody, in which Britain was always multiracial, never a predominantly White country, never a Christian country, never homogeneous, never the home of a particular people with a distinct way of life, a way which is being destroyed relentlessly.

Do the ‘Mary Beards’ and all the other propaganda hacks really believe the lies they churn out and defend? To the left, there is no objective truth; it’s just whatever suits their purpose. It’s all relative, and the past is what they make it, in their eyes anyway.

“Who controls the past controls the future: who controls the present controls the past,” repeated Winston obediently.”

The same process is occuring in all Western, White majority countries. Thanks to the orchestrated ‘refugee’ invasion, these countries will not be majority White for long, as there is no end in sight to the invasion. Maybe this is why the powers-that-be, with their controlled media, are working so hard to condition the indigenous British to accept minority status and second-class (at best) citizenship in their rightful country.

An excerpt of a comment that appeared on Vox Day’s blog:

“It’s a direct, deliberate effort to extinguish all sense of European history as anything distinct or even European.

They are attempting to erase our own identity from us, to cut us loose and make us the descendants of foreigners.

They are scum, and this is a deliberate, profoundly evil, genocidally motivated attack on even the MEMORY of our existence. An effort to obliterate past whites as thoroughly as they want to obliterate the current ones.”

And (apologies for quoting myself), as I wrote on the King Arthur post:

“This is all more than just frustrating; it’s an outrage, because it robs a people of their sense of who they are, and a sense of their history and accomplishments. Shouldn’t all of this be considered a type of genocide?

I am not much in favor of throwing the word ‘genocide’ around, because like the word ‘racism’ it has become too widely employed to describe anything that a ‘victim’ group objects to. But when you lie to people about their origins and their past, when you ‘gaslight’ a whole nation of people, you strip them of their sense of themselves as a people, and of their bond with their real kinsmen.”

 

English-Americans: Still English?

English_sm.jpg

The above is from a pro-English Facebook group.

I know some would not agree with the idea expressed in it, but there’s no denying that one can only be English by ancestry, not simply by transplanting oneself to England. To be British is another matter; though I would not agree with the silly idea that the third-world transplants to the UK can be ”British”, still, British is undoubtedly a civic identity. After all, it encompasses the other nationalities who have long lived in Great Britain, nationalities who are considered British though they identify as Scottish, Welsh, or Ulster folk.

The very reason that the English identity is ”controversial” or politically incorrect in today’s multicultural, multiracial UK is that it is an exclusive rather than inclusive identity. I have heard that there are immigrants from the Moslem world or elsewhere who claim to be ”English” by virtue of residence in England, but to claim that is to deny the existence of a nation or ethnicity called ”English.”

Why do I emphasize this ‘British vs. English’ question? Because it’s important. Many Americans (excluding my readers, of course) are unaware that there is any distinction between ”British” and “English”. In the past I’ve been guilty of using the terms interchangeably, without thinking. Even one of my English readers (on the old blog) said he had done so. It’s unconscious, because the labels are not used precisely or accurately these days. And there is a difference. Just ask a Scot or a Welshman; they will likely tell you that they are Scots or Welsh first, though their civic identity is British. In few cases will they want to say they are English. The English, after all, were the oppressors in the minds of many, and past lost battles are kept in memory for many generations.

So there’s yet another reason why the English identity is destined for consignment to the memory hole, if the globalist fanatics have their way. But as long as I can, I plan not to comply with the politically correct edicts. The truth has to be kept alive.

And yes, though some of us have ancestors who left England 400+ years ago, our English genes are intact, and though culture plays a part, we are who we are in part because of those genes.

St. George’s Day

St. George's Day

Found on a Tumblr blog

It’s a little late to commemorate St. George’s Day, as it’s just passed. But it is a day which brings into relief the ‘demotion’ of England within the ‘United Kingdom’. The St. George’s flag, being a symbol of England and the English, is now in disrepute, in somewhat the same way as our Confederate battle flag is under attack, and for the same reason: it is being called a “racist” symbol.

How can the St. George’s flag be a ”racist” flag, while the familiar Union Jack, known to most Americans as the British symbol, is not? Surely it was a symbol of a monoracial, White, Christian country as is the now-censured St. George’s flag? Well, because the Union Jack was the symbol of an empire, as it were, a multinational kingdom at first, which contained not just the core people, the English, but the Scots, the Welsh, the Cornish, and the Ulster people. Then as the British Empire became world-spanning, containing people of all races, the very term British has become stretched to include all races who either were part of the old Commonwealth, and now to include anyone, virtually anyone, who has managed to get to Britain and establish himself there, by legal or illegal means. There are Moslems who claim to be ”British” and Hindus, Pakistanis, Chinese, Fijians, Caribbeans, Nepalese, the list could go on. The media obliges by describing even convicted foreign terrorists as ”British men” because they had a British address and spoke English.

Thus does a national identity become stripped of any real meaning. British means everything and thus nothing. However, were I to go to England, despite my English ancestry, I would forever be a Yank, and would have to jump through many hoops to establish residency there. I can document my ancestry for many generations and my family names are names known in England, but I have less claim there than any third-worlder.

Similarly in this country, anyone and everyone can be an ‘American’, and though that is wrong, it is still less wrong than in the case of England or any European country, because those countries were always monoracial states, and not “nations of immigrants” as America is now declared to be and to always have been.

Now the Confederate battle flag is under attack and it will someday have to be hidden if the owner doesn’t wish to be arrested and prosecuted for possessing a ”hate symbol” or some such odious nonsense. It may be the same with the St. George’s flag in England, because it’s clear that the English people are to be consigned to the memory hole, just as it’s hoped in this country that the Southron people will be sucked into the multicult blender and written out of history.

The Anglosphere countries are all under the same attack, and we must learn to make common cause with our Anglosphere cousins. This is not the time to bear silly grudges based on past (sometimes contrived) grievances.

Southrons, we should feel more sympathy with our English cousins because we are, like it or not, of the same stock for the most part, and because it’s not the Scots who are being made second-class citizens as Southrons here are; it’s the English. The Scots St. Andrew’s cross can still fly. The Scots have their own parliament. They are also, for the most part, devoted leftists who have a socialist ”national party’, while the English are the last somewhat conservative nationality in Britain. Personally, though most English have been taught to revere their ‘Union’ as Americans have been taught to worship our ‘Union’, I would like to see all the constituent nations go their own way. Let the Scots have their socialist multiculturalist nation, likewise the Welsh, and let the English go their way, and be free to reclaim their national symbols and heritage without condemnation from their multinational ‘countrymen.’

Once upon a time

Britannia and Uncle Sam 1918

The old symbols, Uncle Sam and Britannia, are seldom seen these days, and rarely are Britain and the USA seen as close allies or cousins.

The Great Rapprochement

Here we see the English counterpart of Uncle Sam, “John Bull” as shown shaking hands with Uncle Sam above. I suppose Sam and cousin John Bull have now joined that disgraced group, ‘dead old White guys.’
