Emma West & English Nationalism

At the time of writing, Emma West is being held in custody awaiting a further court appearance. Following her well-publicized anti-immigration polemic she has been accused of committing racially/religiously aggravated intentional harassment. If she is found guilty she will face a maximum sentence of two years imprisonment.

The offense of ‘intentional harassment’ was created with the Public Order Act 1986. One of the stated objectives of the Act was, “to control the stirring up of racial hatred”.[1] In 1998, the Crime and Disorder Act introduced new ‘racially or religiously aggravated’ offences.[2] This means that some crimes are treated by the courts as more serious if it can be proven that there was a religious or racial element to the crime. If the accused can be shown to have displayed hostility to the victim’s racial or religious affiliation during the course of committing a crime, then the crime will be judged to have been religiously or racially aggravated. To give an indication of how seriously this is taken, the maximum prison sentence for intentional harassment is six months, but if it the crime is judged to have been racially or religiously motivated the maximum sentence shoots up to two years.

Such laws are enforced enthusiastically by the authorities in England and are a useful means of censoring political opposition under a legalistic guise. The British National Party (BNP) leader, Nick Griffin, was acquitted in a series of trials in 2006 of using words or behavior intended to stir up racial hatred, another offense from the 1986 Public Order Act. This related to a sting operation carried out by the BBC which had an undercover reporter secretly filming a BNP meeting for the subsequently broadcast program, The Secret Agent.[3]

More recently, Simon Sheppard and Stephen Whittle were imprisoned for inciting racial hatred for material appearing on the Heretical Press website. They were charged with offenses under the Public Order Act: publishing racially inflammatory material, distributing racially inflammatory material and possessing racially inflammatory material with a view to distribution. Sheppard was sentenced to four years and ten months, Whittle to two years and four months (later reduced on appeal).[4]

The case of Stephen Whittle is particularly interesting. A successful author, Whittle’s books had been published by Creation Press, Headpress, and Richard Branson’s Virgin Books. His interests were the decadent and extreme manifestations of post modernity: the serial killer, the occult, sexual perversion, and other types of heresy. All this was unremarkable. At some point he decided to write articles for Simon Sheppard’s website (www.heretical.com) describing the Jewish power behind the scenes, its manipulation of political actors, and the deleterious effects of their immigration policies on the native population. The last essay published on the site before he was arrested was titled “Brave Jew World.”[5] All of this proved to be a heresy too far. No one outside the ‘far-right’, and not many within it, spoke out in favor of the author’s freedom of speech when he was imprisoned.

Along with the censorship of those who wish to speak for the native population is the displacement of that population. In the last decade almost two million immigrants (not including illegal immigrants) have come to the UK. The UK’s population is predicted to grow by seven million in the next 16 years, five million of which growth will be due to immigration.[6] Part of the reason that the liberal establishment is so keen on these debilitating levels of immigration is that they wish to destroy the native population’s ability to represent itself effectively. This was what lay behind the Labour government’s secret conspiracy to increase immigration. The Labour government decided that high levels of immigration would, “rub the Right’s nose in diversity”.[7] The secret document revealing that the government wished to use immigration as a tool for social engineering was only made public as the result of a Freedom of Information request,[8] and has generated little abiding interest in the media. The fact that immigrants are more likely to vote Labour makes this the most outrageous act of gerrymandering in political history.

The levels of immigration in England are disproportionately larger than in Wales or Scotland and some places are already effectively lost. The same is true in the education system where white children are now a minority of the pupil population in London, Slough, Leicester and Birmingham.[9]

Mrs West’s protestation that someone who is black cannot be English may lead her to prison but it is not a false statement. There is a great deal of confusion over the distinction between English and British, and this is compounded by the existence of the United Kingdom. In brief, the English are descended from the Angles and Saxons who came to this country from around the fifth century onwards. The Scottish are descended from the Scoti, an Irish tribe, and the Welsh from the British who lived in England when the Angles and Saxons arrived. (‘Welsh’ is from an Old English word, wealisc, meaning foreign). The history of the United Kingdom is succinctly summarized by Tony Linsell in An English Nationalism:

Wales was conquered by Edward I in 1284 and became part of the Anglo-Norman state. Scotland was united with England by treaty in 1707 thus creating the United Kingdom of Great Britain. The 1801 Act of Union with Ireland created the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. Following the Easter rebellion, or revolution, of 1916 the Irish Free State, consisting of 26 southern counties, gained its independence. The northern six counties remained a part of the United Kingdom, which now consists of Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales) and Northern Ireland.[10]

The key point to note about Britain and the United Kingdom is that they are political entities made up of alliances of distinct nations. The English, Welsh and Scottish all retain their distinct attitudes and allegiances despite belonging to a political entity known as the UK. The importance of English nationalism in this is that Englishness cannot be bought, sold, given or taken away. It is a birthright which belongs to every English person but to no other. UK citizenship is a cheap matter of possessing a passport, and can be given to anyone, no matter what their ethnicity. Britishness is a political concept. Englishness is an immanent and existential status: it is non-negotiable.

For the present British establishment Mrs West is an embarrassing anomaly: an English woman who won’t turn a blind eye and keep quiet. It is likely that with the ongoing censorship of the native English, and their further displacement, this dying breed will be wiped out once and for all.

For the situation to have any chance of being reversed it is imperative that any nationalist movement in England must be an unashamedly English Nationalist movement. British nationalism is, to begin with, an oxymoron, as it seeks to exploit nationalist sentiment for a multi-national project. The problem with this is that vast numbers of foreign people now see themselves as British and have the documentation to prove it. British nationalists tend to be hamstrung by their attachment to the Union, as that very Union is the entity responsible for the threateningly high levels of immigration that assail us. The purpose of the Union was to provide a framework within which distinct national identities could co-exist, and it is still performing this function today, extending its hospitality to the four corners of the globe.

The Union has had its day and needs to be broken up. To renounce British nationalism in favor of English nationalism is not, as some seem to believe, an admission of defeat, it is in fact the first step to regaining our birthright and our homeland. As Alain de Benoist put it, “A democracy based not on the idea of rootless individuals or ‘humanity’ but on the folk as a collective organism and privileged historical agent might be termed an organic democracy.”[11] This recognition of the organic reality of the folk, freed from abstract political accretions, is the most secure foundation on which we can build.

    A major advantage these jews and globalists have is that all they have to do is wait. When the old White people die off our young people will have no frame of reference for what they are losing and what is being taken from them.

    It seems to me that we should be actively supporting, engaging with and nurturing Youth For Western Civilization and any other group like it. That is what I think is missing from all the WN websites that I read. We’re not working with our children and young people. And the warmongers are filling up that empty space by getting them killed in the middle east and wasting them by filling their minds with violence and pornography.

    Shouldn’t we target articles to young people? And btw, I just read an article on this site about comics by Ted Sallis. He states that jews invented the comic book. That is not true. The first comic was in Germany and it was titled Max and Morris. It was an attempt to teach morals to our young people. jews stole the idea of comics as they steal everything else and then figured a way to use it against us of course.

    Today EVERYWHERE it is stated that a jew created McDonalds but that is a lie. McDonalds created McDonald’s and sold it to a jew. They attempt to take credit for everything and even tried to say that Columbus was a jew.

      The McDonald brothers, who founded the original Mcdonald’s drive-in hamburger stand in California and developed the company’s unique menu and service system, sold their company when it was still very small to a down-on-his-luck salesman named Ray Kroc.

      Kroc, who was then in his 50s, was unsuccessfully trying to sell milk shake mixers. He’d previously sold Dixie cups and other products.

      At the time, Kroc, who knew he had to get out of the mixer business, was debating whether to invest in the McDonalds’ hamburger stand or in a product he was currently very enthused about called Fold-a-Nook—a convenient little table for small trailers (the kind that middle-class people hauled behind their cars on vacation trips) that folded up out of the way when not in use so as to create more space.

      Ultimately, he chose the restaurant business. It was Kroc, not the McDonalds, who built the company into the famous corporation we know today.

      The story of that transition point in Kroc’s life is quite funny—but also causes one to think hard about the vagaries of life, including the thin line that often separates success from failure.

      McDonald’s or Fold-a-Nook? Which to choose? It was by no means clear-cut! McDonald’s was not McDonald’s . . . it was an iffy little hamburger stand. Kroc was risking his life’s savings either way.

      The man was invariably an enthusiast for the many products he had sold over the years. The milk shake mixer he was selling at the time was a new invention known as a Multi-Mixer: it mixed up to six or eight shakes at one time. How efficient! How productive! He thought it was great!

      But no one wanted to buy it. As one restaurant manager told him: “I can buy extra mixers if I need them. But what do I do if a single Multi-Mixer breaks down? I won’t be able to make any shakes at all!”

      But there was a hamburger stand out in California that bought not just one Multi-Mixer from Kroc, but multiple ones. Kroc decided he had to drive out to California and investigate. The rest is history.

      Kroc, though, was Bohemian-American (Czech), not Jewish. In politics he was a conservative Republican.

      He was white.

      In case you’re wondering, I read his autobiography years ago.

        That biography sounds like a Kroc of….actually it sounds like an interesting read.

    Contrary to all the fuss over Emma it is no secret that Negros are not British for Elizabeth kicked them out of the country back in 1596 AD http://uk.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100429023910AA69fjb I suppose the Home Secretary is now going to have England’s greatest queen exhumed and burned at the stake for a hate crime.

    “The fact that immigrants are more likely to vote Labour makes this the most outrageous act of gerrymandering in political history.”

    I’ve heard two popular and very similar theories to explain immigration. The first one is that big business wants to import cheap labor. The second one is that left-wing politicians want to import voters who will vote for them.

    Neither theory holds water. Big business is actually losing money due to immigration. And politicians actually lose votes and seats because of their support for race-replacement. They will get many votes from the immigrants but will usually lose even more votes from White voters. The best way to get elected would be for left-wing candidates to say that immigration must be stopped. They would still get the immigrant vote, and they wouldn’t lose so much support from White voters.

    Besides, the Conservative Party doesn’t exactly oppose race-replacement, even though they know the immigrants will vote for Labor. How can that be explained? The problem is that you have to get the endorsement of a major party before you start wooing electors. If you take position against immigration, you won’t be endorsed by either party. No one will have a chance to vote for you.

    In fact, immigration is not a scheme to get cheap labor and cheap votes. Immigration is due to ideology and activism, aided by corruption, bribery, co-optation… Left-wing movements have been hijacked so that the White loony leftists are now serving the Jewish ethnic agenda, and White “antifas” are used to intimidate decent people. Right-wing political parties have been hijacked too, at least at the top.

    “some places are already effectively lost”

    Nothing irreversible.

    “Britishness is a political concept.”

    Blacks are not meant to stay in Britain. So, there is no reason to accept the idea that they can be British any more than they can be European. I think we should ask the United Nations to give a reference number to every independent state. For example, if Britain received number 45, the Brits could then be called the “Fortyfivers”. And Blacks and Jews who are temporarily allowed to live in Britain would also be called Fortyfivers, without any reference to Britishness, which has nothing to do with them.

    For reasons of organizing the vote the separation of Britain into local wards may have its advantages but one can hardly say that Britain is a political concept. Sir Arthur Keith in his 1919 Robert Boyle lecture before the Oxford University Junior Scientific Club asked the question, “What is the physical difference between a Celt and a Saxon?” and then proceeded to provide the answer. Apart from local mannerisms and tricks of speech Sir Keith said that there was no difference. While it is often said that the British are a mixed and mongrel race the truth is, that as regards physical types the inhabitants of the British Isles are the most uniform of all the large nationalities of Europe.

    It is not only Britain that is being undermined by the traitors within and just as the British have to stand together all European people must.

    “A few days later a gang of female Somali racists who were filmed stamping on a white girl’s head while shouting “Kill the white slag” were released with a tut-tut and a judge’s apology for allowing alcohol to exist in the UK’s remaining non-Sharia zones.”

    If you care to key Britain First into Facebook we can learn that Emma was released on bail. No news of whether she has her three children back.
