An anti-migrant poster unveiled by Nigel Farage has been reported to the police with a complaint that it incites racial hatred and breaches UK race laws. On Thursday night Dave Prentis, of the Unison union, said he had written to the Metropolitan police about the poster, which shows a queue of mostly non-white migrants and refugees with the slogan “Breaking point: the EU has failed us all.” 
Prentis described the Ukip poster as a “blatant attempt to incite racial hatred”. He said: “This is scaremongering in its most extreme and vile form. Leave campaigners have descended into the gutter with their latest attempt to frighten working people into voting to leave the EU. 
“To pretend that migration to the UK is only about people who are not white is to peddle the racism that has no place in a modern, caring society. That’s why Unison has complained about this blatant attempt to incite racial hatred and breach UK race laws.”

These tropes are not just racist. They are callbacks to the particular style of nationalist antisemitism that we thought had been purged from Europe for ever in 1945. The figures in those cartoons are drawn from the same stock as those that populated Nazi papers. 
It may seem absurd to conflate the fear and hatred of Muslims with the fear and hatred of Jews when the two groups are united in the popular imagination only by their fear and hatred of each other. But they both appeal to the same dark archetype in the European imagination: swarming, sinister, lecherous, and dirty. Both are supposed to have subverted the elites to strike at the common people. Both are supposed to constitute an existential threat to civilisation. 
And anyone who appeals to either of these terrible archetypes is an enemy of this country, and of all the values and the decencies my father fought for and suffered to preserve. Remember, if you vote leave, you get the vote leavers.

    1. Blacks have actually been the biggest victims of all those "victimhood obsessed blacks"...

  2. One for the ‘I knew lefties were weird but I didn’t know they were this weird’ folder. Andrew Brown in the Guardian describes the Ben Garrison cartoon as disgusting, racist and anti-Semitic.

    1. Where does the antisemitic part come in?

    2. They become "anti-semetic" once Garrison's pictures are edited by 4chan /pol/ users to add the "merchant"

      As for Brown, he's a retard.

    3. @ CZ—To reassure the Jews that, when it comes to victimhood, they are still the original and the best.

  3. El dibujo humorístico es interesante y acertado, pero NO se hace referencia de los judíos y La Masonería directamente, se ve una bandera del Islam arriba de la bandera masona de la U.E., habitual en lugares pro-judíos contra el Islam.

    Aún así nosotros la hemos puesto en nuestro espacio web, con algún enlace para relacionada temática o similar.

    Coincido con la opinión del artículo personal, nos han metido una serie de cosas de forma obligatoria en Occidente, y los que han estudiado o saben de asuntos polémicos son tildados de Racistas o censurados, de forma general. Aunque la censura ya no tiene razón de ser quedan señalados muchos lugares webs de servivios que dicen ser gratuitos y libres, pero no lo son verdaderamente. En realidad ningún occidental tampoco es libre, diferenciando la libertad con el libertinaje, por supuesto. Occidente ha vendido durante muchos años el término de libertad y se ha comprobado que no es cierto, y las democracias occidentales están fallidos por la mano del mandil para que nos peleemos.

    Hay que estar unidos, los patriotas occidentales, ya que en cada una de las respectivas naciones el enemigo está adentro, de ahí Guerra Civil Occidental.

    Recuerdo hace unos años, como comentaba con alguna gente el tema de La Famosa Crisis Internacional en España, y les decía que ésto algún día estallaría ; a lo que los que me escuchaban se reían y me decían que estaba loco. Pues lo mismo hoy en día con la guerra que se avecina, naturalmente la gente de forma general ya tienen sus propias preocupaciones y no quieren ni escuchar del asunto, hasta que uno del ISIS ( musulmanes en general en todo Occidente ) corte la carretera de su vecindario, lleguen camiones y coches con gente armada de civil, los edificios principales de las ciudades y comunicaciones tomadas. Entonces, entonces, sí lo creerán.

    Saludos Diversity, muy buenos envíos de información, como siempre.
