British Identity and Multiculturalism

In keeping with their tendency to maintain contradictory notions and construct indefensible contortions, left-liberals have continued to attack the British singer Steven Morrissey for being insufficiently enthusiastic about Britain’s multicultural experiment. HT: The Alternative Right.

In 2007 [the British singer] Morrissey was quoted by the NME as saying
Although I don’t have anything against people from other countries, the higher the influx into England the more the British identity disappears. So the price is enormous.
If you travel to Germany, it’s still absolutely Germany. If you travel to Sweden, it still has a Swedish identity.

But travel to England and you have no idea where you are

Lawyers for the former Smiths frontman told the high court on Monday that the singer “continues to suffer” reputational damage from a controversial interview he gave to NME magazine four years ago in which he complained about an “immigration explosion” leading to a loss of British identity.
In a written submission, Morrissey said his comments received “a barrage of press” at the time, and added: “Question marks over my being a racist have never since receded”.
bitter standoff that spans almost two decades – in 1992 NME accused him of “flirting with disaster” and racist imagery after he wrapped a union flag around himself while on stage in Finsbury Park, north London . . . .

The funny thing is that these vibrant lefties should being agreeing with Mr. Morrissey, not vehemently opposing him.

Multiculturism is wholly incompatible with any particular ethnic nationalism. Fans of racially and culturally diverse societies should relish the expiration of “British identity.”

While one can certainly decry Morrissey’s implicit disapproval of such a loss of British identity, one cannot reasonably dispute his simple statement of fact that British identity is dying while clinging to the belief that globalization and multiculturalism are prevailing.  Nor can one rejoice in glee over the emergence of diversity while lamenting the very phenomenon the British singer mentioned.  
And racism, as per the usual definition of belief in racial superiority, isn’t required to uphold WASP nationalism, as the common aphorism of the HBD sphere demonstrates:

Diversity + Proximity = War

As western civilization continues to be flooded by exogenous racial and cultural groups, social tension and friction will increase. The observable clashes in the U.S and Europe are lending empirical support for what the HBD’ers have been saying all along.  No belief in inherent racial superiority is necessary.   

But the reason left-liberals invariably shout “racist!” is a simple matter of projection.  Leftists really are the true racists.  Much of their motivations are based on race, so they project that same racism onto everyone else.
