It’s Them Again!
by Frederick Dixon
THE IDIOT prince and his appalling wife represent much of what is wrong with Britain.
I use the word “represent” deliberately because that is what Royalty is supposed to do – represent the country and the nation. It seems, moreover, that that is exactly how the marriage was seen by the Queen. According to “royal expert”, Lady Colin Campbell, had Meghan been White she would never have been allowed to marry Harry because of her dodgy (my word, not Lady C’s) background. But, as she is mixed race, the questionable baggage that came with her could be overlooked because she would “represent” the monarchy in, and to, an ever more multi-cultural and mixed race Britain. Another indication, if we needed one, that the monarchy does not really represent any particular idea of the nation, but merely shifts with political fashion in the interests of its own survival. (And I used to be a monarchist!).
The Sussex’s are a kind of alternative monarchy, or anti-monarchy, generating far more column inches than the rest of the Royal Family, but a monarchy made by and for a globalised, liberal world. To some extent, Harry’s father has played a role in creating this new “woke” institution. Although he is often written up in the media as, mystifyingly, a “conservative” figure – presumably because he wears tweed and likes old buildings – in reality he has always shown sympathy for ethnic minorities; remember his “Defender of Faiths”? This can be seen again in Charles’ speech for “Windrush Day” on the 22nd June this year: “Prince Charles says diversity is Britain’s greatest strength, as he pays tribute to the Windrush generation” reported the Telegraph “the Prince of Wales has paid tribute to the ‘profound and permanent contribution’ of the Windrush generation to Britain, as he says the diversity of modern society is its ‘greatest strength’” . The speech itself was clearly written personally by Charles, reproducing that treacly style in which he so often speaks, and larded with adoring praise of Black immigration. How refreshing it would be if Charles, or any other member of his tribe, showed a moments understanding for those of us who face the loss of our homeland, but I fear that such an understanding is far beyond the capacity of our great and good.
Anyway, the reason why I felt the urge to write yet again about the grisly couple is that they condescended to address us for the opening of “Black History Month” at the beginning of October. If you bothered to read their turgid offering, it was entirely predictable, but two things said by Harry caused me a moment of wry reflection. One was his complaint that little coloured girls going into a toy shop to buy a dolly will see only pink and blonde ones, none that “reflect their own skin tones”. Really? When I was a boy, toy shops always had Black dolls and that was still the case forty years later when my daughter was little – perhaps, since those happy days, Black dolls have been “cancelled” for “cultural appropriation” or “black face” only for it now to be discovered that they’re politically correct after all!
The other thing in Harry’s speech that caught my eye, was his complaint that our country was made “by and for white people” and that that somehow affects the prospects or comfort of non-White people. So who were our White ancestors supposed to make this country for, if not for the White people who were its only inhabitants? Such a complaint might have a little more resonance in the United States where the ancestors of the Black population were dragged there in chains, but it is merely offensive in this country where the non-Whites have, without exception, chosen to come here, and to come here moreover “against the will and without the consent of the British people”.
So who do the Sussex’s “represent”? They represent the new globalised liberal aristocracy of tech and finance; they represent high-status elite opinion, which has become the default thinking of those who matter. The extent to which this left/liberal thinking – the “replacement ideology” as it has been called – has penetrated this country, was starkly revealed by the reaction to the Black Lives Matter protests a couple of months ago. All our institutions and big companies “bent the knee”, from the British Library to the National Trust, from Greene King Breweries to the Ministry of Defence, from the football Premier League to Lloyd’s Insurance. As Geoffrey Miller said on Unherd 22.7.2020 “if your ‘revolution’ is endorsed and sponsored by [the] most powerful corporations, and any dissent against it is censored by Big Tech, it’s not a revolution. It’s the triumphant lock-in of an ideology that controls citizens’ hearts and minds for vested interests.”
It came as an unpleasant surprise to learn just how deeply the alien and hostile ideology of White guilt had become the ideology of our elite. But perhaps it shouldn’t have come as a surprise. It was said long ago, that when men stop believing in God they do not then believe in nothing, they will believe in anything. Christianity is moribund in the West, and in its place we have this “replacement ideology” – our masters no longer worship God, so in His place they worship the sacred Negro.
