The ruling class of Britain has triumphantly seized on the fact that the African jihadi terrorist Khalid Masood was "British-born". This has been repeated ad nauseam in the press and on television. See Nick Cohen's piece in the Observer today for a typical example. 

Farage publicly made a connection between the attack and immigration and for that the ruling class has rounded on him. Today he had a chance to face them down. And he bottled it. 

Rather than make the obvious point that Masood was a racial alien of recent immigrant origin, and that his ancestral alienness must have been a factor in the lack of empathy he obviously felt towards the British people, Farage backed down by calling Masood "British" and trying to broaden the discussion to include other attacks committed by first-generation immigrants on continental Europe.

No one in the public sphere is willing to challenge the cornerstone of ruling class ideology, namely the insistence that peoplehood and statehood are one and the same. While Jews are allowed a distinction between Jewishness and Israeliness - between their ancestral identity and their citizenship - that distinction is denied to Europeans. And no one is willing to challenge that denial, not even semi-retired fringe figures like Farage. 

To make things worse, the disgusting "Baroness" Warsi is back doing the only thing she ever did, even when she was supposed to be doing other jobs: defending Islam. Masood "was a violent Christian before he was a violent Muslim," she tells us.

 

The only good thing about Warsi being back is that it gives me an excuse to retell the only half decent joke I ever made up. 
"Baroness" Warsi walks into a pub with a sabre-tooth tiger. The barman takes a look and says "Sorry, you can't bring that thing in here". So the sabre-tooth tiger turns to the "Baroness" and says "You wait outside while I have a quick pint, luv."

  1. There’s a lot of ‘Masood was a violent Christian first so stick that in your pipe and smoke it’ around. Archbishop Cranmer did his bit to smooth the path of Islamization a couple of days ago: ‘Adrian Elms was a violent Christian before he became Muslim terrorist Khalid Masood’.

    1. There were about 800+ comments when I looked at his blog; one of the latest comments makes the point that "Afro-Caribbeans are disproportionately violent" so not everyone, it seems, is fooled by the 'violent Christian before becoming a violent Moslem' and, anyhow, Moslems committing Jihad are following the dictates of their false 'prophet' Mohamed whilst Christians who would do so would be rejecting Christ's teachings. No one expects a politician to have any brains, let alone knowledge of what different ideologies teach. As for the 'Archbishop Cranmer blog', I haven't looked at it in nearly a decade; far too predictable.

    2. @ Anonymous—My experience of the Cranmer blog is that most of the self-identifying Christians who comment are clued-up about Islam but completely clueless about Jews. Cranmer himself moves in political and church circles so he’s no great boat-rocker but I do my best to provide some boat-rocking below the line.

  2. 'Rather than make the obvious point that Masood was a racial alien of recent immigrant origin, and that his ancestral alienness must have been a factor in the lack of empathy he obviously felt towards the British people,'

    This is actually hinted at in the most recent Panorama episode; Westminster Terror Attack.

    Not relevant but a heads up, the next Panorama will be a classic BBC hit job on Marine Le Pen.
