David Kurten: Twisted logic of the Britain Bashers

After Theresa May abandoned every last shred of conservatism and jumped on the ‘progressive’ Britain-bashing bandwagon when the government’s ‘race audit’ was published, it is now flavour of the month to take pot-shots at white people, the United Kingdom or the West in general, for being institutionally racist. This is not for anything any white person has done, but because you get Twitter points for saying white people are bad.

The BBC is merrily joining in the fray and scraping new lows in propagandising the fake concept of white institutional racism. A person named Munroe Bergdorf, who identifies as a mixed-race transsexual model, is the latest nonentity searching for 15 minutes of fame by calling white people ‘the most violent and oppressive force of nature on earth’, while sitting comfortably and safely in a television studio in a majority white country, surrounded by Western technology, to convey his views to the masses.

If the word ‘white’ were replaced with ‘black’ or ‘Muslim’ or any other identity moniker, no doubt the hate crime police would be knocking at his door in an instant.

Another aggrieved guest named Professor Kehinde Andrews was invited on to the BBC’s Newsnight to say that he is going to start acting like the spoiled, ungrateful and immensely wealthy footballers in the USA who ‘take a knee’, and refuse to stand for the Union Flag or the National Anthem to protest against colonialism. He claims that in Britain as well, ‘racism is so ingrained that it is part of the DNA of the nation’, so ingrained that he has a nice cushy job at Birmingham City University where he can expound his ideas in peace, and is free to go on national television to do a bit of ‘Britain-bashing’ without any threat to his health, safety, security or income.

He is no stranger to the national broadcaster, and seems to be quite a regular performer who can be wheeled out whenever the BBC wants someone to do a bit of race-baiting. He was on Newsnight earlier in the year when he explained that the Enlightenment was racist because it was Eurocentric.
He conveniently seems to forget that the Enlightenment happened in Europe at a time when it had far superior technology to any other continent. This is a simple fact. But in the Brave New World of identity politics, facts are racist.



Bergdorf’s premises are entirely false: there are good and bad people in every society, but Western civilisation is far better than most others. While almost all societies in history have suffered the evils of slavery, it was Christian campaigners such as William Wilberforce who ensured that the United Kingdom was the first country to abolish the practice.

The United Kingdom can also be proud of its espousal of freedom of speech and its economic system of free market capitalism. Capitalism generates more wealth than any other known economic system and is the global economic engine which has lifted billions of people of all backgrounds out of poverty.

Finally Britain is such an unbelievably great and big-minded country that even people who espouse the most outlandish idiocy are free to share their ideas and sometimes even get paid for them. Bergdorf, Kehinde and their ilk must be thrilled to have discovered this niche market in toleration: to be able to make a nice bit on the side through their performances on the ever-sympathetic and uncritical BBC and other media outlets. The fact that they choose to stay in this atrociously ‘racist’ country and don’t take themselves off to Mogadishu, away from all the terrible white people, is a statement in itself. Their actions prove that their words are false.

    Nailed, David.

  • a misplaced modifier

    Nothing to argue with here — than you.

  • Reborn

    Well said.
    I a proud to live in the least racist country on Earth.
    I am ashamed to live in a country where its enemies are nurtured & even paid by the state.
    From the BBC to muslim schools, those who currently run the UK hate the real British,
    not all of whom are white or Christian.

      I agree, What also all these Brit bashers have in common is that they are rarely self
      made people who work in the private sector. They are nearly always
      employed by the public sector, academia, the arts or organizations
      funded by the public purse.
      Also have you noticed how many of them come from the same urban areas that voted Remain?

  • Nailed indeed, Sir. Well done. In a similar vein, it is 21 October, and that means I’ll meet some friends tonight. Let me explain.

    Later today, I will join some friends of mine, all US Navy veterans (except for a couple of leathernecks and even a bootneck), at the local American Legion Post. We will discuss diverse and wonderful things, naval power, F 35s and F4s, CVNs and CVFs, tactics, standing orders, Battleships and Ships of the Line, history, and great leaders. And many other things as well. Likely not excepting British Gingers who steal American souls.

    But before we do, we will drink a toast in English whisky as we do every year, made not far from Burnham Thorpe, in Norfolk (If the bar manager has managed to find a bottle, otherwise we shall have to make do with Glenlivet.)

    That toast should be familiar to you all, it is…

    “The Immortal Memory of Lord Nelson and those who fell with him”

    We will likely not, however, sing “Rule Britannia” for which the other patrons will thank us profusely. If it goes as it usually does, however, towards the end of the night, we likely shall sing “Eternal Father, Strong to Save” with all of the other patrons, as we remember those who have gone before us.

    I recommend you do similar, as you used to. It is not conservative to abandon traditions which remind us of who we are.

    Amongst the dozen or so of us, including white, black, Asian (both East Asian and Indian) Native American, Jews, Christians, Hindu, and none, there will not be a single one who will bash Britain, although some politicians (British and American) are likely to receive some hard words. I predict it will be so today, wherever free men gather. Britain, like the US, is not perfect, and never will be. But it’s better than anything else (except the US, of course!) 🙂

      Brilliant post D A
      Thank you for this. It reminds me of who our true allies are. Our links of kith and kin are so strong.
      When I was a kid in my teens in the Islands of West of Scotland I knew a lot of older men who fought to liberate Europe. (and when i say a lot I mean most)
      I knew a man (paratrooper) who swam back over the river from Nijmegan (Holland) to escape the Germans. I knew a man ( our next door neighbor) who got a French fishing boat back from St Valery to escape the Germans. I only ever heard storties of life , not death.

      • Thank you, my friend. You will not be surprised at the title (or content) of my post on my blog today. All you say is true. One of the things that will be said tonight (it always is) is that of all the navies of the world, only the Royal Navy and the United States Navy always sought the weather gage to insure the battle would take place. It’s who we are.

        I too am of that age, when I was learning my skills, nearly all of my teachers and friends had fought either the Germans or the Japanese (and a few, both), and several the Koreans and Chinese, too. They too almost never referred to anything but life, and how lucky they were. And speaking of paratroopers, I knew the one from the 82d AD whose chute left him dangling on the church at St Mere Eglise. He was still angry about it in 1970. Hard to blame him. The US Infantry has it right for all of us: “Follow Me!”

        My dreams were with the Air Force. I had the great honor once to meet General Doolittle (One of the greatest of my memories). It was interesting that one of the people on the dais that night was the current (then) Chief of Staff of the United States Air Force. It said a lot about him that as GEN Doolittle approached him, he stiffened to attention like a recruit and and snapped off the best salute I’ve ever seen. This from a full general with 100+ missions over Vietnam. We all need heroes, and our culture is rich with them.

        “Never give in–never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”

      I say, Christianson, singing ‘Rule Britiania’?

      Won’t you be at risk of being beaten up?

      • Rarely, Your Grace, just as it unlikely singing ‘The Battle Hymn of the Republic’ at St. Paul’s. We go far back. One Remembrance Day I wrote of General Pershing awarding the Medal of Honor to your Unknown Warrior, the only time it has been awarded to a non American, and that by special act of our Congress.

    • All Prager videos are good. This one is outstanding. (Yes, its one of my favorites as well.)

    While almost all societies in history have suffered the evils of slavery, it was Christian campaigners such as William Wilberforce who ensured that the United Kingdom was the first country to abolish the practice.

    Can someone more knowledgeable than me inform us who the Muslim equivalent of William Wilberforce was? Or are we still waiting for the Muslim world to produce such a person?

    There is no need to take the extreme example of Mogadishu. There are many Third World and developing countries where a person with a good (or at any rate, expensive!) education should be able to carve out a distinguished career or become a successful entrepreneur. Those with above-average qualifications are capable of being more mobile, as they are more likely to meet criteria for foreign governments’ work visas and so on.

  • Gary Laconic Jr.

    David Kurten using masculine pronouns for the transsexual model would no doubt annoy Munroe Bergdorf. Good.

    • The Sage

      The BBC has all kinds of problems with this. It wants to describe all actresses as actors until, wait for it, Harvey Weinstein turns up and a gender neutral thespian does not quite make sense in the headline. Weinstein tried to grope actor. What? Is he gay? Suddenly everyone is an actress again.
      It was the same when Francois Holland had an affair and when the transgender Arquette died.

  • Good article, well said. I am curious to know why Henry Bolton decided to exclude Mr. Kurten from his frontbench lineup. More reason to think that:

  • Dr Evil

    Absolutely spot on. If we are Anglo-Saxons are so evil why do these non-Anglo-Saxons stay amongst us? Perhaps they hope to civilise us or convert us. Hang on, we had that 1500 years ago. We don’t require lectures from those whose ancestors we civilised a few hundred years ago. If they don’t like it here they can clear off. No loss to us.

  • Richard Brady

    Yes,he is right to see the absurdity of the anti white race card nonsense and the Communist BBC
    giving it the “high five”.
    Britain needs the equivalent of Private Eye that could be broadcast but I know this would not be allowed as it would hit too close to home !!

    ‘Finally Britain is such an unbelievably great and big-minded country that even people who espouse the most outlandish idiocy are free to share their ideas and sometimes even get paid for them…’

    And right on cue, up pipes ‘Mastermind’ David Lammy, missing the target completely with his much ridiculed (axe grinding) ‘study’ of admissions to Oxford University. A study wrong in it’s construction, wrong in it’s analysis and wrong in its interpretation.

    It is though helpful to confirm that when Lammy speaks, it’s something worth ignoring.
