Mass immigration has left Britain 'unrecognisable', says Nigel Farage
Daily Telegraph ^

Posted on 03/01/2014 8:22:46 AM PST by UKrepublican

Mass immigration has left Britain an "unrecognisable" country that many people would not want to leave to their children and grandchildren, Nigel Farage has said.

In one of his strongest attacks on immigration policy, he said the arrival of migrants has some British people feeling that parts of the country are now alien to them.

The UK Independence Party leader said parts of the country had been "taken over" by foreigners and told how he caught a recent commuter train from London to Kent and had to wait for several stops before he heard English being spoken.

Unfortunately, there is little they can do about it, absent the sovereign stepping in and taking over all government functions for a season. But that is wishful thinking.

Its all enabled by the Federal Reserve, which supports progressives in government with massive debt monetization. Every progressive social engineering scheme is made possible through debt and inflation.

England and extreme Western Europe were at the focus of the Enlightenment and the Industrial Revolution, because it had a class structure that created and enabled the super elite that did the most human and wonderful things. They, and the world, have lost all class, and all hope of accomplishing anything further. In fact, the collapse of Western Civilization is in its concluding stages. Imagine the least civilized nation you’ve ever known, and that is what is in store for even the once Great Briton, and every other once ‘civilized’ nation.

The baton will now be passed to “artificial” life.

Nigel is correct, and nothing will be done about it until there is mass civil unrest by the Patriots. The demented political Elites of the West have pushed whatever laws and policies will take down civilization as we know it. It’s happening without even a fight. Go, Nigel! Palin, you need to ramp it up and talk about the bigger picture here in the USA - you will never be POTUS, so you have nothing to lose.

The analogy of a fine productive garden being over taken by encroaching weeds applies. Constant attention to the garden, meaning weed control, ensures a continued productive garden. Same applies to nations if you can’t, or won’t, protect your borders your way of life, or sovereignty is jeopardized.

Out of control immigration from Southern Europe is one thing. Uncontrolled illegal immigration from the Middle East, Mexico and the Caribbean is another. The recent two-minute speech from Putin hits the nail right on the head. We are losing American culture and history. The next great American politician will be the one drastically cuts even legal immigration for a generation to give our country a chance to assimilate those who are legally here now. Illegals, of course, would be deported or imprisoned.

The British left intentionally increased immigration in order to destroy Britain. They basically want Britain to cease to exist. They hate their own culture and heritage and would love instead to become just another indistinguishable cog in the EU superstate, and they’ve almost succeeded.

That said, this is exactly what the left has in mind for America, too. Legal or illegal immigration, if not checked, will essentially destroy America and our unique heritage of individual liberty, self reliance, and morality. When they say they want to fundamentally transform America, they mean it. Their end game is a USA that’s just another virtually indistinguishable cog in one world government.

Very true. When Tony Blair and company finally got into power after so many Tory victories, they intentionally opened the gates to mass immigration, specifically to fashion a new electorate.

The same Treason the U.S. Left is successfully practicing today.

There is good in opening your doors to the stranger.

But you don’t open your doors to all strangers or soon enough the stranger is you.

There is nothing immoral in englishmen having a country of their own. Englishmen ought to have a country of their own where they can rule themselves and live by their own lights.

And there is nothing wrong in opening your doors to people who admire you and want to be like you, and want to join their destiny to yours.

But if you open your doors to colonists who do not want to be a part of your society, you will lose everything.

I don’t think enough people have thought through the difference between immigration and colonization. Immigration policy should always serve the interests of citizens.

Years ago my mother and I were touring London and visiting family in England. We were taking a bus in London and came to a place where we decided to walk. Got of in a spot where only men were on the sidewalks, middle eastern and presumably Muslin. We were very uncomfortable because we were getting not friendly looks. Moved along fast.

What, seven or eight billion people in the world? Many of them from dysfunctional societies which require aid merely to feed themselves. And we are going to bring these third world victims to our shores and not expect them to drag their culture along?

Societies are poor because they practice non-constructive behavior. These bad habits are the logical consequence of their beliefs, intrinsic to their culture. In Mexico, or Nigeria, everyone expects officials to be corrupt, with the consequence that government steals the fruit of all productive labor. In time, people stop trying, knowing that some corrupt official will just take their value from them anyway. If one is fortunate enough to become an official, then, “Hurray! My chance to live off the effort of others!I’ve won the lottery!” Why would they be expected to do anything different when they have been brought up in such a culture from birth?

Make no mistake! The United States became great because our society was based upon a relatively (for mortals) pure interpretation of Biblical values. The hard work ethic, honesty, charity, consideration for the well being of others, that we enjoyed here manifested in the most productive society the world has ever know. Lose those values, and you lose everything which made us great. Flood our ranks with those who practice other values and you will reap the consequences produced by their values.

For a sneak peek at how things will turn out, just look at the country they came from.

The mass unrest will come from the immigrant demanding a government of their own, recently an official was caught advocating child molestation for the muzzies, she claimed it was a "mistake" of course

Something similar is happening in America of course.

I think our betters are tired of dealing with us. So they are replacing us.

You know, a million abortions per year and a million illegals per year on top of another million legal immigrants, and in a couple of decades you won’t recognize the place.

Combine an open border and make it illegal, as it is across the country, to require ID from voters at the polls, and you won’t recognize the results at the polls either.

We are being replaced.

I will say this. Farage focuses his ire on EU immigration. In my opinion, the problem with open borders isn’t EU sources of immigrants except indirectly. Every country in Europe is struggling with unlimited muslim immigration and this is what is turning Europe upside down. This is what is causing lawless enclaves and crime, no-go areas where even the police won’t go, and even attacks on free speech. Gang rapes. Film directors slaughtered in the streets and politicians who have to sleep on military bases to avoid being murdered. This isn’t happening because of Lithuanian shopkeepers.

So maybe he didn’t want to point the finger specifically at muslims but I will.

The human model is no different than diseases. You let it in and eventually you die. GB is on the verge of dying (losing it’s past identity) due to the influx of the hordes. The long-term result is not that everybody is genetically mixed, and hence, gets along. The result is like before, one of the many groups attempts to dominate all others—just like disease. And we think we are so intellectual.

It is not nice to say that some cultures and some peoples are superior in any way to others.

"Nice" assumes massive importance IMNVHO because women vote. Women will not vote for anyone who is not "nice." Any controversy makes them uncomfortable. They are so sensitive to "nice" that they will vote for an Obama because it is not "nice" to be critical of mixed race people. Can't we all just get along? Of course, after they voted for him, they felt "nice."

In fact, if someone, anyone tells or puts out the idea in the media to female voters that something about a candidate is not "nice," they will vote against that candidate. When a candidate uttered a harsh word about an opponent, even one who is as "un-nice" to women as Ted Kennedy was, and the ladies will invariably flock to his standard, perhaps in some weird perversion of the maternal instinct.

Issue-based electoral campaigns are history. Policies? Unimportant. How does the candidate make you feel, Madame, or Ms. ?

Originally, the Dutch (the Italians, the Brits and the Belgians) etc. invited in all sorts of Worthy Oriental Gentlemen from their soon-to-be-former colonies with the aim of educating them, and then sending them back to build up the (former) colonies as civilized and productive independent countries.

Of course, Brussels, London, Rome, and Amsterdam turned out to offer more attractive lifestyles than downtown Kinshasa or the South Side of Ougadougou. The Dutch have been paying people for years to go TF home! That doesn't work, either.

Quaint and colorful foreigners all, they were wonderful on the Kodachrome pages of the National Geographic. Clogging the gutters of Europe? Not so hot.
