Oh UKIP are complaining about how oppressed they are because people criticise their racism/xenophobia/general asstwatishness and claims Scottish politics are “being racist against the English”.
Not surprising a bunch of racist idiots don’t understand how oppression works.
“We are UKIP because we stand for all of the UK because we are all Britain ZOMG THOSE SCOTS ARE BEING MEAN TO US ENGLISH”
Well, those definitions lasted well.
Do you think they know that the “British” pound sign £ came from the Romans and has been used as currency sign in lots of other countries that aren’t part of the UK?
It’s a bit like a MRA group having a ♂ symbol as a sign and having people who studying astrology and alchemy laughing at them.
I think if I’ve learned anything about groups like UKIP and the BNP it’s that they have not the faintest glimmer of an idea about where anything comes from, up to and most especially including the things they build political platforms on.
Like immigration. If you want everyone to ‘go home’, including people who were actually born here; what’s the cut-off point where it was okay? England as a country has produced an incredible race of people off the back of its immense diversity owing to all that conquering that was done to it. Which of those waves of immigration is okay? Is it in chronological order? Or do we pick and choose? Are we chucking out anyone of Viking descent but keeping the Normans? No, wait, in the modern day everyone randomly and bitchily hates France and racially abuses them but thinks of Scandinavia as simply the place where flat-packs and crime dramas come from. So maybe it should be the other way around. How do you reconcile that some people might Look A Bit Brown but have actually been here, family-wise, since the middle ages, whereas someone who looks white is second-generation German? And how, when claiming “ancestral rights” to your homeland, do you get around the thorny issue of, say, the Welsh? Because, you know, if we’re going down the path of genetics…
Heh, funniest thing I ever heard from the BNP actually was Nick Griffin once saying there’s “no such thing as a black Welshman”, which even aside from the blatantly incorrect racism shows (a) an astonishing sense of entitlement that you get to dictate who does and doesn’t qualify as a nationality that isn’t even yours, and (b) an astonishing lack of understanding of the qualification rules for being Welsh; like the Japanese we care more about being culturally than genetically Welsh, and that just means supporting whoever plays England in the rugby. Including, and I literally mean this, if you are English but don’t support the English rugby team.
TL;DR: lol, racist politics
