Enoch Powell's "Rivers of Blood" speech as prophecy realized
In April, 1968, British politician Enoch Powell gave the speech of his lifetime. Based upon what he saw as the purposeful destruction of Great Britain by the rot of "multiculturalism" (what he terms "integration" in the speech), he gave the long term political weather forecast for England specifically and the West in general of 100% chance of blood showers with occasional crimson downpours.
The full text of his speech can be found in this article in The Telegraph
It is important in reading such speeches and in listening to them to separate facts, assertions and emotion. However, after listening to his impassioned words and reading the text for content, a number of questions bubble to the surface of consciousness.
In consideration for the incendiary content of his message, is there any way to judge if he was right or has he been proven wrong? Perhaps somewhere in between? We would need some metrics, like demographics of Britain then and now. Crime rates per capita (provided the definitions of crimes have not evolved). Some measure of civil contentment or otherwise. These would appear to be reasonable data points that might dispassionately illuminate our thoughts on the matter.
Straight up comparison data is muddy at best. Some things are tracked better than others. The trends that I have seen in British demographics are several. Britain is getting more diverse (duh). Native Britons are getting older and the younger ones just are not procreating at anything like replacement rate. Culture-wise, there is a tidal wave of "no religious preference" types, as well as a rise in weird, secular "religions" like "jedi". I kid you not.
Given the rambunctiousness of the fresh imports and the slavering, simpering desire of the establishment in Europa to doom their own citizens in preference to the strange and foreign, what possible outcomes are there?
Option 1 is that all ethnic Brits just roll over and die, the quicker the better (pace Oprah Winfrey). Unless Brits are willing to go the route of the Jim Jones cult in Guyana, I just don't see this as happening.
Option 2 is that Brits find the energy to solve their issues, like the EDL stands for.
Option 3 is that peace breaks out and the newcomers go forth and sin no more, and embrace British values and culture. Although this is seen as extremely unlikely, is there some scenario in which this modus vivendi may come about? The contents of the koran do not offer any hope, as England is in "Dar el Harb" (world of war) and full of apostates and infidels. Koranic opinion on treatment, proper treatment, mind you, would be seen in what Saudi Arabia metes out
It is hard to square the circle of Western civilization co-existing with Islam in any sort of peaceful, lasting way. It is like using Windows... you just know that sooner or later, you get the "blue screen of death"
The "windows" blue screen of death (BSOD) so familiar to office workers world wide is an apt metaphor for the fix Britain is in RIGHT NOW.
An error has occurred (and how!)
I believe that the locals will figure out before too long that they are going to have to "CTRL+ALT+DEL" right back at the rampaging mobs that have taken over sections of a once pleasant place. They may have a lot of "defragmenting" to do, as well. They might rewrite the boot sector and even wipe the drive, go for a complete reload of a documented, working operating system. They have been adding errors for many, many decades.
As Enoch Powell stated (extreme edits are mine, but his message is coherent and a beacon from the past for England),
"The supreme function of statesmanship is to provide against preventable evils. In seeking to do so, it encounters obstacles which are deeply rooted in human nature.... evils are not demonstrable until they have occurred...
Whole areas, towns and parts of towns across England will be occupied by sections of the immigrant and immigrant-descended population... The discrimination and the deprivation, the sense of alarm and of resentment, lies not with the immigrant population but with those among whom they have come and are still coming...The other dangerous delusion from which those who are willfully or otherwise blind to realities suffer, is summed up in the word "integration." To be integrated into a population means to become for all practical purposes indistinguishable from its other members....Only resolute and urgent action will avert it even now. Whether there will be the public will to demand and obtain that action, I do not know. All I know is that to see, and not to speak, would be the great betrayal."
I do not know if the British Home office is going to ban me from entry to England for writing this, although the chance is not "nil". GCHQ will certainly see this (hi, guys). I do hope that from across the pond I can perhaps open some eyeballs on this urgent topic in some degree. After all, England spawned Winston Churchill, a man of talent, education and foresight. As perhaps the best spokesman for England and the English people, he speaks from the halls of history and has this to say:
P.S.- Final Thought: Consider the current political climate - would Churchill be banned from entering England for that quotation?
