A strict immigration quota and “antisemitism, xenophobia, nativism and isolationism” doomed many of the passengers aboard the St. Louis in 1939, according to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
Is this really politics?
When a crowd is baited into hysterical emotional outbursts of hate can that be politics? Who will pay in the long run? Is this healthy for the country to foster such hatred and division?
Surely politics should be about presenting a series of policies and arguing why they are the best options. Surely it should be a cerebral process of debating and weighing up which is the best philosophy for the country?
The USA process seems to be one of demonising, taunting and creating monsters out of the opposition. Seemingly Hilary Clinton is a liar who supports the devil. She should be locked up.
The audience is exhorted to hate in what looks remarkably like a scene out of George Orwell’s 1984. I find it frightening. The emotions are so high it breaks out into violence.
After all the dust has settled what will be the…

I agree for the UK as been reliant on immigrants for many, many years and the country as blossomed as a result. Before the European immigrants, there were the immigrants from the Commonwealth. Then well before then we had the invaders Celts, Vikings, Normans, Romans, Jutes, Angles, and Saxons to name but a few.
The media needs to be promoting non-racist values.
So to those who are uttering racist abuse, they could be doing so to some of their very distant cousins.
What has happened to this country? What is going on? We really do seem to be becoming a nation full of some very nasty people and I don’t like it. All I am seeing at the moment is story after story, report after report, news item after news item, on social and in mainstream media, of racist and xenophobic attacks and mind-boggling hatred towards our fellow man and woman. It’s horrible. Even though it’s now been a week since the Referendum, since we voted to leave the European Union, it’s going on and on and on. The hatred and racism is not abating in any way that I can see, if anything, it’s getting worse. According to newspapers and the news bulletins I’ve seen, read and heard just today, racist hate-crime has increased fivefold in the last week. A truly terrifying statistic and not a Britain I want any part…

VIDEO: “How quickly we forget. One generation passes, two generations pass, and suddenly we don’t remember where we came from.”
by Martin Odoni
NOTE: I nearly wrote this article back in June, but in the end I decided to wait until evidence was in the public domain of post-Work-Assessment-Test deaths.
Seifeddine Rezgui is the name of a killer. On the 26th June 2015, armed with a Kalashnikov, he attacked a hotel in Port El Kantaoui, on the north-east coast of Tunisia. His frenzied attack, committed on behalf of the extremist terror group, Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL), left thirty-eight people dead. Thirty of them were British citizens, whose memory was lovingly saluted three days later, when the House of Commons observed a minute’s silence. The Prime Minister, David Cameron, then ordered that a national minute of silence would be held on the 3rd July, exactly one week after the attacks.
Iain Duncan-Smith is the name of a killer. Since becoming Secretary of State for Work & Pensions in…
