Shock poll shows rising tide of right-wing nationalism
The Daily Mirror ^ | February 27, 2011 | Vincent Moss

Posted on 03/01/2011 9:56:06 AM PST by triumphant values

Almost half the country would back a new right-wing party that vowed to crack down on immigration and Islamic extremists, a shock poll reveals today.

They would also restrict the ­building of mosques and order the flag of St George or the Union Jack be flown on all public buildings.

The revelations will spark fresh fears of racial tension in Britain amid a new wave of support for extreme right-wing parties like the British National Party and the English Defence League.

Findings of the survey, the largest of its kind and involving 5,054 people, are in a major report called Fear and Hope – the New Politics of Identity, which examines views on race, ­immigration and multi-culturalism. Former Foreign Secretary David Miliband and campaigning left-wing MP Jon Cruddas will officially unveil the report, produced for the ­Searchlight Education Trust, tomorrow.

Thirty-four per cent said ­immigration should be stopped permanently or until the economy improved. The report also found opposition comes from all races, not just “white Britons”. And 52 per cent of Britons agree that “Muslims ­create problems in the UK”.

The only thing that shocks me about any of this, is the fact that the West is so far gone, that some find holding these sorts of views shocking.

Only a far left nutbar would be shocked by the impulse for self preservation in western societies.

So much for the purposeful introduction of the state religion of Multiculturalism to overcome British Nationalism.

Didn’t work out so well, did it, boys?

I always said I have faith that, when push comes to shove, Europe would rally. This is going to get bloody, but the right will win-and win big.

Perhaps you could sort out your own interloper monarchs before worrying about ours?

Do any of the liberals who advocate for the rights of “Native Americans” also support the rights of “Native Britons?” I doubt it - it doesn’t fit their template, which is to weaken the West.

They never considered it necessary to poll british public as to how they felt about their idea, just like leftists could care less about what the American public thinks.

Leftism is tyrannical. Its as antithetical to western ideals of openness and freedom as is Islam.

We are hooked at the Hip thanks to the Late 19th and ALL of the 20th Century. We ingnored our founders’ admonition to “avoid intangling alliances” and got ourselves into a series of foreign wars starting in around 1890. As Great Britain goes today the US will be there 10 years later.

Liberals/Marxists think any country that defends its European roots is a right-wing extremist—even when that country is in Europe.

Funny, the same liberals/Marxists that cried about European and American imperialism for decades think it is perfectly acceptable when the barbarians invade European countries and the United States.

Some years ago, when they were negotiating one of the international whaling treaties, they were adding exceptions for "native peoples" around the world.

The Norwegian negotiator pointed out that they were native Norwegians and had a right to some of the whale harvest also.

No one knew how to respond to that. It was outside their leftist thought parameters.

Leftism is mainly a "who" - "whom" narrative. That means first and foremost it's anti-white. Don't expect consistently applied principles. That's not what leftism is about.

Europe is not rallying. More people attend mosques in England than Christian churches. London’s most popular male baby name is Mohammed. It’s too late for them.

And we are racing to join them on the ash heap of history. We elected an enemy of western civilization, and he is feverishly working to dismantle the republic.

Yep, as a student of European history I agree.

While many people think England/Great Britain as a whole is lost, I think that history tells us that things have to come right down to the last straw, the last boiling point and the last day until England wakes itself.

It will take a catalyst, but I think it will happen.

The English Defense Legue is a Multi-Racial, Uni-Cultural, movement, consisting of Ethnic Britons, Hindus, Sikhs, and Jews that started out to preserve British Society from the erosion comming from Radical Islamism.

They are trying to equate the EDL to the Germans in 1930.... Come on, give me a Break!!!

Let's be honest, the EDL is 99% English men and the rest are brought on as a PC figleaf to deflect criticism of "racism".

That aside, I stand fully with the EDL and would tell them all the pandering to calls for "diversity" within their group won't do them any good with liberals any way, so why do they bother?

Oh, but it does. There are few better tools for an entrenched elite to use to deny majority interests in the pursuit of social control. You're right, it doesn't serve any national interest. They aren't after any national interest.

The idea behind multiculturalism is that someone gets to make special sets of rules for each separate class and dispense largesse to the degree that those classes perpetuate their control. It's really nice to be that someone or that someone's favored class. It sucks to be everyone else, especially the majority "oppressors".

Yup, don't watch much TV and haven't seen a history textbook since 62'. I shudder to think what the current American History textbooks look like. Do they even teach American History anymore?

It most likely is.

But, it will take far longer than the doommongers here predict.

The U.S. might be “gone” before then.

And what is gone anyhow?

Being under hostile rule?

Some might argue you are there already.
