The Immigrant Song

Nigel ‘Smoky-drinky’ Farage has been talking to an American audience at one of Donny Trumpton’s gigs. He is of the opinion that there is going to be a global revolution and the nationalist parties will take France, Germany and Holland – and zen ze Vorld! Hahahaha!

Well, not North Korea obviously. Nor China, nor Russia. Unlikely that anything in the rest of the world will ever affect Turkmenistan. Most of Africa won’t care. So maybe not all the world. Perhaps about a third of it.

I don’t know if ‘revolution’ is a good term here. It usually means the overthrow of a dictatorship but you can’t usually do that just by voting for it. They have elections in North Korea, you know. One candidate on the ballot form and voting is compulsory and not secret. It’s an utterly pointless exercise, it’s just there so Kim Jong Jingly Jangly can claim he was democratically elected.

If someone were to write ‘Nobby the Goblin’ under Kim Jong’s name and then draw a box with a cross in it, it’s not a spoiled ballot paper. It’s a warrant for that voter’s arrest. That’s a country that will only ever change with a real revolution or a spontaneous outbreak of sanity in the ruling family. The smart money is still on revolution as the only real option – hard to do in a country where everyone is under surveillance all the time.

What’s really happening is that the control freakery has got so bad, the life control so insistent and intense, that enough people want it gone. When that happens they vote for something else in the hope it will be less controlling.

There has been a nationalist/socialist party in Germany before. That didn’t go too well. I don’t know much about Holland’s past but I think France has been staunchly socialist since their Revolution. Well, people really couldn’t vote right-wing for a long time anyway because the revolutionaries cut the heads off all the potential candidates. A drastic, though admittedly effective, measure.

The Lefties would dearly love to do that again. They are always proclaiming and often actually perpetrating violence against those who don’t want to live under their control, while claiming victimhood. They’re not the only ones…

There is an immigrant issue and it’s largely Muslim. There, I said it. Now both the Muslims and the Lefties can start carving a wall plaque to hang my head on, in the name of peaceful coexistence.

I am not one of those who declares all Muslims are deranged Jihadis. This is clearly not the case. I have frequented many a Muslim-run shop or restaurant and found a polite and generous reception every time. Muslims have nutters in their ranks. So does every religious group out there. Christians are not so bad these days but there are parts of Christian history that are quietly pushed aside.

Even Hindus can turn nasty. Hindus! They won’t step on an ant or kill a cow but hoo boy, if you’re the wrong religion in some Hindu countries you have little chance of getting out of there alive.

What do we do about countries that radically disagree with our way of life? Simple. We don’t go there. It’s the cheap and easy way to solve the problem.

Currently though, Hindus, Sikhs and pretty much every other religious or ethnic group who settle in the UK don’t threaten to kill us all and impose their religious laws on us all. Sikhs are a warrior race but they don’t run screaming through the streets brandishing swords and cutting the heads off passers-by. The only time I remember Sikhs protesting was when there was a play running in London (I think) that directly insulted their religion. They reacted to provocation (who doesn’t?) but even then, all they wanted was the play shut down. They didn’t want to burn down every hairdresser’s shop in the country.

See, if you piss off Hindus in their own country then they might kill you. Their country, their laws. In the UK, they recognise that UK laws apply – so if you provoke a Hindu in the UK they will use UK law to make you stop. That’s perfectly fair and reasonable. Other immigrant groups do the same. They want to be here because they like it here and while they retain their own culture and beliefs, they fit in with the UK way of life.

Actually I have wondered sometimes. There was a Nigerian family that moved all the way up here to the North of Scotland and I never got around to asking how they coped with our winters. Nigeria doesn’t really have much in the way of winter. They’ve been here over a decade though so they’ve obviously adapted. I’ve moved out into the wilds now so I never see them any more.

The same is true of most of the Muslims here. They have adapted to UK life and while it gets damn cold here compared to most of their countries of origin, they know we won’t cut off their hands for stealing or stone them for adultery or behead them on a whim. Further, we will let them have mosques and won’t force them to change their religion. They can keep their own values and beliefs but becoming a UK citizen means accepting UK laws.

Some didn’t come here to escape the madness of their own countries. Some came here to make the madness global. You have to recognise the problem before you can do anything about it and the Lefties will not recognise it. They defend the loonies in Islam even though those loonies will kill them as soon as they win.

People say ‘But if there are moderate Muslims, why don’t they speak out?’

Imagine a world in which the Westboro Baptist Church was defended by the Lefties no matter what they did. Even the gay Lefties defended it in the same way they now defend Islamic loonies. So that little band of loonies gained power and deranged converts. Any other Christian speaking out against it would be shouted down and probably targeted for hate and a beating – both by Westboro and their Leftie defenders.

If you were a Christian in that world, would you speak out? You can say yes now because it’s a theoretical scenario that won’t happen but consider… the Lefties also run the child monitoring agencies. Your children could be taken away because you are a racist Westborophobic right wing bigot. And that would be just the start.

The Westboros would declare you a heretic and apostate and you would be ostracised and possibly killed. Your family too. Still think you’d speak out?

Not so sure? Now imagine you’re a Muslim family quietly and happily running a corner shop or a restaurant or maybe another business. Would you risk losing it all – and it means all. Absolutely all – by speaking out?

Yes, there are moderate Muslims. There were moderate Catholics during the time of the Inquisition and I fully believe there are many Hindus in Hindu countries who are appalled and disgusted at what their government does to those of other religions. Who will speak out when speaking out can get you and your family killed?

Who, in North Korea, would dare utter ‘Kim Jong ate all the pies, the fat bastard’? His brother did. From outside the country. He’s dead now.

If you want a UK Muslim to stand up and say ‘Saudi Arabia is run by maniacs who just like killing people for fun’ you have to promise that Muslim a change of name, location, face, and a 24-hour armed guard for the entire family forever. At least some of them think it, I can assure you, but saying it, well, they’d rather play handball with nitroglycerin. It’s less risky.

Look at what the Lefties do when a non-Muslim says ‘there are Muslim terrorists’. They’d do the same to a Muslim who said it. They’d marginalise them to the point where they would have no defence when the Islamists came for them. And they know it. So they keep quiet. Wouldn’t you? When you know you will be decrying murderous loonies and nobody will dare stand in your defence?

It’s not immigration that’s the problem. There’s always been immigration, everywhere. My mother’s family came from northern Italy. Might explain my predilection for leaving horse heads in enemies’ beds and my looking forward to the day someone comes to ask a favour on the day of my daughter’s wedding but even so, the family has integrated. I consider myself Welsh because that’s where I was born and I can now almost hold a conversation in Doric because that’s where I’ve lived for a few decades.

The Lefties aren’t reading this far. They hit outrage mode less than halfway down the post. Nothing after that will reach them. Don’t worry about them, they are off decrying me ‘racist’ even now.

I was in southern Ireland, in Dublin, in 1989. You could not get anyone to talk about the IRA much but they didn’t have universal support. It seemed most people didn’t really give a shit about Northern Ireland, they had their own lives to deal with. Really, I got the impression that only those who were obsessed with the island being one country were IRA supporters and most of them joined it. Just like Islamic Jihad.

The trouble was, speaking out against them could get you killed. Same thing. Who believes all the Irish were terrorists? The airport police did. An Irish co-worker – another PhD – was detained at the airport because of his name and accent.  So in the current wave of terrorism, if you give your name as Muhammad Ali, you are going to be treated as a potential terrorist using a fake name, even if it is your real name. It’s not at all surprising, is it?

Trump has the right idea but he’s cutting with a blunt knife. It’s not immigration he should target. It’s fanaticism. So should everybody else.

And not just Islamic fanaticism. All of it.

Especially the Leftie idiot enablers.

Oh, almost forgot :

  1. ” I can now almost hold a conversation in Doric because that’s where I’ve lived for a few decades.”
    Off the topic but on the subject of the, admittedly, somewhat moth eaten but still rich linguistic,non-RP tapestry of these here isles, I watched “Trespass Against Us” ( ) last night -mainly because it had Gleeson on the tin. Really interesting “Cant”-well sad old speek-geeks like me will find it interesting. I have never heard Gammon or Shelta so can’t say if it was a true representation, I did however recognise some of Romany words …”jill on”, “gavves” “gorje” so i assume that Shelta has taken on various Romany words. well as the ‘British’ use of the word ‘f*ck’ as a noun, a verb and an adjective…every other word.

    And everyone smoked…even in small caravans…infront of their children.
    Those poor wee mites.

  3. Your parallel with Ireland is a valid one. Here in the US in the 70s/80s Irish bars often had Irish immigrant workers who’d likely overstayed their visas and were working in jobs where they could stay “under the radar. And such bars, if my vague memories (hmm… odd that… memories of bars being vague… wonder why?) are correct sometimes (often?) had collections/lotteries/whatever in which the proceeds were kind of acknowledged or purported with a wink and a nod to be in support of the IRA. There was certainly never any widespread public feeling/expression of condemnation of the IRA despite its violence.

      • It’s something I never see mentioned, but I think it existed… to at least SOME extent. I wonder if anyone anywhere ever did anything like a study on it? Hard to do so long after the fact though: they’d mainly be anecdote-mining among retired bartenders/barowners and old-line customers — and what they’d hear might be far from accurate unless they were particularly skilled interviewers.

        I think of it when I see critics of the Muslims saying “Where are all those MODERATE Muslims we hear about? Why aren’t they all marching in the streets condemning the radicals?” I guess one approach to an Irish bent on the research would be the old television tapes of the speeches given at St. Paddy’s Day Parades in Boston, NY, and other big Irish immigrant cities. During the years where the IRA was most active conducting bombings and such, how many speeches were given condemning them … or even mentioning them?

        I think it’s probably human/nationalist/group nature to lean toward sympathetic interpretations of events that occur with one’s “root group” off in other places, coming up with excuses like “Well, the (group attacked) did a whole lot of worse bad things themselves in history, so they’ve got no leg to stand on in complaining!”

        Dunno. But it is a parallel worth at least some degree of consideration.

      • Actually that’s sort of one of my vague memories of the situation in some of the Irish bars here in Philly in the 70s/80s as well. It wasn’t OPENLY stated, but I think it was there and quietly accepted as part of the cultural background.


  4. I take your point – and agree.

    Except for the bit about the rest of the world, because I do think Africans give a shit. They’re mighty pissed at what’s happening in South Africa and would dearly like to see Jacob Zuma stand trial. It’s a similar story in South Korea, where again corruption at the top is the issue.

    Eritrea’s just a case of one guy who’s treating the place as a fiefdom – and Mugabe’s doing pretty much the same thing. He’s 93 and feels the people need him and will vote him in again in 2018.

    Things still bubble away in Egypt and the underlying problems that lead to the Arab Spring have not gone away in the whole of North Africa.

    And China as well as Russia are a bit of a sham Leg’s. They’re keeping a semblance of one big happy family, but they’re not. Wiki says it far better than I can.

    (you can go on and look at the other areas covered by Wiki – I don’t want a 3rd link).

    Nigel’s 100% correct though I do believe, certainly with France, that he’s a bit too quick on the draw. Pressure cooker’s not quite ready yet to blow the lid.

    It will – and I just hope I’m around to witness it!

    • Russia and China have a lot of dissent but also a lot of people who have learned to work the system. Basically, don’t be outspoken against the government and they leave you alone. Even to the extent of building motorways and housing estates around your house if you refuse to move, at least in China.

      The African dictatorships are nastier. Muggybuggy has been feasting on imported treats while banning his people from any food imports. There are a lot of them and one of him, and he doesn’t grasp what that means. If the people you rule despise you then you’re not the king of anything.

      France would be a shock. It’s staunchly Socialist but I think Le Pen is playing to that part too. France is sick of immigrant criminals destroying the tourist industry and rioting and burning Citroens (are they any good for anything else?) and getting in the way of onion sellers and snail hunters. That’s the big issue, not whether the trains should be private companies or the hospitals run by businesses.

      If Le Pen wins, it’ll be on a National Socialist ticket.

    • Westboro are just amusing idiots, but imagine what they’d do if they had the support of the politically-correct crowd. Of course, their single issue can’t possibly attract that support but just imagine if it did.

      They’d be as bad as the Jihadis. They’d strafe gay bars and have celebs making excuses for them.

      As Thylacosmilus said, it’s the enablers who make the minor irritant into a fatal disease.

    • Just holding up signs? Haven’t some of them murdered doctors or bombed Planned Parenthoods etc? And the IRA can’t be forgotten either. The big difference with the Muslims is that they’re numbered in the hundreds of millions (which then mean their tenth of one percent nutso-violent contingent is numbered in the hundreds of thousands rather than just in the hundreds.)
