The journalist David James Smith opens his article in today's Times by recounting a revolting incident in which a dunderheaded local white youth "fly-kicked" Lakhbir Singh in the back, having mistaken him for a Muslim. Thankfully, it seems that no lasting physical harm has been done to the Sikh Mayor of Luton. Smith then goes on to imply that the recent anti-Islamist demonstration in the town (initially planned by March for England which withdrew its support when it realised that it was likely to be hijacked by thuggish elements) that degenerated into a threatening mob incited by menacing masked football hooligans, was in some way associated with the BNP. It is of course the recent success of this party that has prompted Smith to write his piece.
Given that the BNP has repeatedly declared that it will use the ballot box alone and emphatically dissociates itself from violence of all sorts, Smith's attempt to attribute this disorder to the BNP is baseless. It would be more appropriate to lay the blame at the feet of the Government which continues to advocate limitless mass immigration, panders to Islam and enforces multiculturalism with ever-increasing fervour. Smith's piece indicates that he possesses not the slightest insight into the real, deep and justifiable sense of grievance felt by sections of the indigenous British population. The tired cliches of multicultural narrative are deployed in the requisite places: an enumeration of the successive waves of migrants who have settled in Luton; an attempt to portray Sayful Islam and his confederates as isolated extremists within a "moderate" Islamic community; the insinuation that the Lionheart blogger Paul Ray is guilty of "inciting racial hatred" and so on.
Smith's article attempts to retrieve and resurrect his tattered multicultural ideal through an embrace of the Islamist coloniser: "But it is the Asians, particularly the Muslims, who have made Bury Park their own, and turned it into a vibrant, dynamic outpost of south Asia. In a town of 184,000 people, around 35,000 are of south-Asian origin, and just under 30,000 are Muslim." As you can see from this quote, Smith has unwittingly acknowledged the de facto colonisation of this part of the town (i.e. "turned it into a vibrant, dynamic outpost of south Asia") but cannot bring himself to name this process. He also feels compelled to use that dreadful term beloved of the exponents of multiculturalism: "vibrant". Just what does "vibrant" mean, and why is this term never applied to our own people and culture?
Smith goes on to interview hatemonger Sayful Islam, the man behind the protest against the 10 March homecoming parade of the Anglian Regiment. Unsurprisingly, Smith's national self-loathing leads him to frame Sayful in a rosy aura: "Sayful Islam sounded measured and far from fanatical throughout our conversations." If Smith thinks that this sort of reporting and the sympathies that it betrays will help to combat the rise of the BNP, he is utterly delusional. This is evidently a piece written by a materially comfortable cossetted ageing trustafarian, who possesses the financial wherewithal necessary to insulate himself from the pathological aspects of enforced multiculturalism. Any chance that he lives next to Bury Park? Pah!
