The Good Ones Died On The Somme

Since we're apparently stuck with open borders, why can't we use the opportunity to import some new aristocrats ? Preferably some with working genitals ?

I'm with Ross: if what James McGrath said was so offensive, why do leftists keep lying about it ?

But no: new rules from the top are that what people actually say is irrelevant, it's all about what other people might think they said. But who are these other people exactly ? Sane people or race-hustling pond scum ? I'm sure the race pimps did detect a racial subtext in McGrath's comments, but then they find racist overtones in the weather forecast. When did we start letting crazy people define our standards of behaviour ?

Still, at least the race hustlers are being exactly what you'd expect them to be. On the other hand, in so far as Cameron has now hung a 'kick me!' sign on every Tory in the country, I'm really starting to question his status as a political super-genius.

There's more to it than just the politics though. The Tory position only makes sense if you accept the absurd Marxist position that victim groups - or, more correctly, their self-appointed representatives - should be pandered to no matter how ludicrous their demands.

Needless to say, the Cameroonatics would defend all this as the price of reaching out, but is it really ? There's the obvious point that by folding so rapidly the Tories make themselves look guilty, as though they accept the liberal slander that you scratch a conservative and find a Nazi. But there's more to it than that.

By pandering to the race hustlers, the Tories have implicitly accepted not only the right of these self-appointed fanatics to speak for every member of the communities they claim to represent, but also bought into their whole train wreck agenda of racial balkanisation, taxpayer-funded social engineering and permanent victimhood. In other words, the Cameron prescription for ethnic minorities is all the things conservatives recognise as causing disaster when employed in any other context. Now that's racist.
