When Politics Invades the Playground
by Max Musson
THIS WEEK A STORY has obsessed the UK media almost as much as the continuing Brexit saga: It is the story of a Syrian schoolboy named Jamal, a “refugee” whose family have been relocated to Huddersfield and who now attends Almondbury Community School in that town.
A video has been posted on the Internet showing an English boy wrestling a Middle Eastern boy, allegedly Jamal, to the ground, whereupon the English boy proceeds to pour some water from a half empty mineral water bottle over his face, before releasing him and allowing him to walk away.
The story broadcast by the mass media is that Jamal is an innocent refugee who came to the UK to find safety and a better life, but who has instead been subjected to sustained bullying and that the attack depicted in the video amounted to heinous ‘water-boarding’.
Subsequently, a crowd funding page has been opened to collect money to comfort the ‘tortured’ and ‘persecuted’ Jamal and a torrent of hate messages have been posted by ethnic minority, left-wing and anti-White multicultural zealots threatening to kill the English boy who attacked him. We are also informed that Huddersfield police have interviewed the White boy in question and that he is to face charges of assault, and furthermore, we have been informed that the family of the White boy in question has received so many threats they have had to be taken to a police safe house for their protection.
Another video has also surfaced subsequently allegedly depicting Jamal’s sister being bullied by White girls and more recently stories have emerged in social media alleging that Jamal is not so innocent in all this, accusing him of having previously bullied and beaten a White girl.
So shocked have been many of the snow-flake, bleeding-heart liberals and leftists that ludicrously the crowd-funding page opened for Jamal has reportedly received over £135,000 in donations. Furthermore, so shocked has Tommy Robinson, UKIP’s Islamic issues spokesperson become by reports of all the above goings-on and the ludicrous amount that has been donated to Jamal, that he has entered the public debate, claiming that he has seen evidence that Jamal is not innocent in this matter and has been involved in the bullying of a White girl, and lastly Jamal’s legal representative has now apparently threatened to sue Tommy Robinson for defamation.
All of this — all of the above — over a relatively insignificant playground scuffle between two schoolboys in which no one appears to have been actually injured.
Firstly, the attack upon Jamal has been described as ‘sickening’ and involving ‘waterboarding’ and anyone who has not seen the video footage might imagine that Jamal had been badly beaten and held down and had a large quantity of water poured over his face for an extended period of time, such that he might have been placed in real fear of drowning. However this is not the case.
The attack upon Jamal lasted for approximately six seconds and approximately half of a 50cl bottle of mineral water was emptied over his face during approximately two seconds of that attack.
Technically, the attack could be construed as ‘assault’, but it was not a severe assault, not anything like severe enough to be described as ‘sickening’, and it is the kind of ‘assault’ that is commonplace among teenage schoolboys. When I was a schoolboy I witnessed fights between teenage schoolboys that would make this so-called ‘sickening assault’ pale into insignificance. Learning to defend oneself against bullying from other schoolboys is all part of the process of growing up and it is utterly ridiculous that this incident has been blown-up out of all proportion.
It is ridiculous to describe the sprinkling of a small quantity of water over someone’s face as ‘waterboarding’, and it is ridiculous that members of the public thought that being wrestled to the ground and being splashed with water is sufficient to warrant compensatory donations amounting to over £135,000. I doubt that there is even one schoolboy of my generation who was not at one time or another on the receiving end of far more violent bullying than Jamal suffered. Are we then to now video every playground altercation and donate similar amounts to every schoolboy in the country? If so, why stop at schoolboys, why not open crowd funding pages and collect similar amounts to compensate every one of the thousands of schoolgirls groomed, abducted and lured into prostitution by invader rape gangs?
There are many genuinely hard done by people in this country who would willingly volunteer to be wrestled to the ground and splashed with water if they knew they would be rewarded with £135,000 in donations from bleeding-heart liberals with more money than sense. Indeed, it is likely that Jamal would probably volunteer to be ‘attacked’ in the same way again if he was assured of receiving yet another similarly ludicrous payment!
The reason why this incident has been blown up out of all proportion is quite clear. It is because Jamal is a ‘refugee’ and the boy who had the altercation with him is White, and those within the media who promote multiculturalism and multiracialism latched onto this incident as a way of fabricating a heart-rending story designed to shame White people into feeling sympathy for a category of people who are, in reality, lucky to be the recipients of our nation’s hospitality.
An immigrant schoolboy came off second best in a playground scuffle, so what? All schoolboys at one time or another are involved in playground scuffles and fifty-percent of them come off second best! This is no reason to involve the police. This is no reason to expel one of the boys from the school in question. There is no need for groups of adults from political groups and from the organised minorities to become involved in threatening those on either side of this petty altercation. It’s schoolboys doing what schoolboys do, for heaven’s sake!
What we see here however is the politicisation of the playground and it is a regrettable, but inevitable consequence of multiculturalism. This is one of the facets of dysfunction that accompanies the spread of multiculturalism and incidents like this will only increase in frequency if multiculturalism is allowed to spread across our country.
When such altercations occur between two English schoolboys, and Tommy beats Johnny in the scuffle that ensues, we all accept that Tommy has asserted his dominance in the schoolboy pecking order and that the existence of such a pecking order is a natural development among children.
However, when an immigrant child comes off second best in a petty altercation, the ‘community’ to which the immigrant child belongs feels that the child, as a representative of their community is under attack and needs to be defended and they intervene, making complaints and making threats. Their instinctive desire is that their children should always prevail in such altercations and not be allowed to come off second best. What is most sad about the state of our nation however is that many of our people have been so cowed and brainwashed by multiculturalism and political correctness that they regard it as only right and proper that our children always defer to the immigrant and must always be judged to be in the wrong in any altercation. It is believed on a subliminal level that they must defer and always be judged to be in the wrong in order to atone for the ‘racism’ that is believed to permeate our society, our history and our civilisation. Furthermore bleeding-heart liberals feel compelled to atone themselves, with wholly disproportionate generosity and wholly disproportionate indignation when minority individuals are perceived to have come off second best at the hands of a White person.
An important part of the challenge that faces those of us who practice White advocacy is that we must combat this obsession with atonement, with White guilt and self-loathing that infects so many of our people. We must help our people to regain their pride and their self-respect. We must raise them up off their knees and teach them to once again assert their right to exist, to prosper and proliferate.
