The British public’s muted reaction to the latest terrorist bombings has been a massive disappointment, according to sources close to the Islamoposer community. Many worry that Britain is showing all the signs of a tolerant nation that doesn’t have the stomach to be provoked into race riots. If true, this could make the tragic circumstances difficult to exploit for everyone from the far right to the fake left.
On Saturday morning, interviewees on LBC’s Andrew Pierce radio show were desperately struggling to spin up a few examples of anti-social behaviour as proof that the lower orders are knuckle dragging thugs. Britain’s population of 65 million supposed excitable morons failed to produce the hoped-for reaction and critics of the British public were forced to grandstand with a seemingly lame tweet by a recruitment agent in Croydon. The hoped for incendendiary incident failed to provide a platform for posturing however.
Though outwardly bullish about how terrible the British public are, many posturers fear that Britain is running out of racism. Posers are now forced to open a can of hash tag on the thinnest of material, but each over-reaching accusation brings diminishing returns of opprobrium. “We used to have plenty of racism in the 70s,” complained one newspaper columnist, “it’s almost as if social attitudes have changed.”
Comedian Russell Blowhard, who regularly reports on stupid racists he observes on the train, is suspected of fabricating the incidents, the volume of which is massively out of proportion to the experiences of most Londoners. “I’m worried that, in the cause of seeking the audience’s approval, Russell might be making these incidents up,” said one concerned observer, “in which case, he must have a massively racist imagination.”
Tolerance is no excuse, said one radical New Statesman columnist. “Evidence of sexism and racism can be found everywhere you look, if you try hard enough,” said Polly Poser, a product of public school and two decades of socially ring-fenced formative years, “when I’ve got a column to write and money to earn, I’ll roll my sleeves up and bloody well find something socially divisive to say, even if it kills you.”
