Aggressors often like to be seen as victims. Pop down to your local magistrates' or crown court and you'll hear a dozen sob stories that supposedly excuse punching someone outside a kebab shop, breaking into a house or terrorising an ex-partner. It's good to be the victim, because that makes all blame dissolve away into the air. It means that what you did wrong can be excused, because you've been on the sharp end yourself - so it wasn't your fault you smashed a pint glass into a complete stranger's face, or whatever.
We'll hear the BNP bleating today, or whenever their latest membership list is released (update - I understand it's up now, though I won't link there, as I believe that's a no-no. But you know where to go). They'll complain about how they're the victims. They'll complain about how they're being targeted by the PCgonemad powers-that-be. They'll sniffle into their swasticka handerchieves about how - blub - they're only trying to be part of a democratic party that's standing up for the - sniff - indigenous population. Chokes you up, doesn't it?
No. Of course not. They are members of a racist party, set up by racists, run by racists, with racism as it's reason for existing. They exist to hate. They're not the victims in this by any stretch of the imagination, so let's be absolutely sure that not a crumb of sympathy is reserved for them. Yes, membership of a political party - even a racist one - shouldn't stop you from doing almost any job you like, but there are some professions where it's clearly stupid, and against your contract of employment, and should get you fired, and it's your own dumb fault. You'll forgive me if I don't pat you on the head and say "There there" while you're escorted out of reception with a bin-bag in your hand.
Last time, you'll recall, the BNP clarion call was that they were going to be targeted for violence. Members with families were worried about their children's safety now their addresses had been revealed. Those who leaked the list would have blood on their hands, it was asserted. But it didn't happen. There was no wave of violence against BNP members. And it's worth remembering that this time.
The real victims of racism are those who suffer racist attacks - and it doesn't matter which way round that is. Before you cry about the BNP and their membership list, remember Mohammed Al-Majed, killed for being a different colour, whose attackers were convicted yesterday. Remember that racist attacks happen all the time, against Jewish people or Asian people and every kind of people - and yes, against white people too.
What you'll notice in the comments under that Blackburn race attack story is a desperate scramble to make white people the victims of the story, the victims of some PC campaign by the local paper concerned. People tell of stories they've heard of white people being racially attacked and it not turning up in the paper - well I'm pretty sure the paper or the police don't have an agenda to hush up shocking crimes just because they were committed by the 'wrong' people. But that's the paranoia, the search for victimhood. As one commenter rightly puts it:
Am i missing something here????
it was a young asian male that was attacked, it was that same asian that suffered a broken arm and broken rib, it was that young lad that had to have surgery due to the afflictions from White men so how did white people become the victim as a result of this article??? As Paul Cockerton has explained similar articles in the past when the victim has been white and attacker has been asian have been published without the facility to comment on them because the perpetrator has been caught and legal proceedng commenced. therefore white criminals are not being caught as easily and justice to asians not being served as efficiently as to the white people. What does that say about the police, the community and moreover the people that are posting racial hatred above??? Are there really more asian criminals walking the streets than white criminals???
There are many reasonable comments on there, but also comments stating that isn't the case at all, that there's a big conspiracy against white people, and the usual thinly veiled racism. People just can't help themselves. I don't doubt there are racists who target white people; I disagree that there's a big conspiracy involving the media and the police to keep quiet about it.
People want to be victims. The BNP want to be victims. Racists want to be victims. Not victims like Mohammed Al-Majed, of course; but victims of a conspiracy, of unfairness. Racists love to feel like strangers in their own land; they luxuriate in victimhood and imagine that the whole world is out to get them, that there are no-go areas everywhere, that 'tolerance' has led to spiralling anti-white crime, that immigrants get first in the housing queue and get handed out benefits and jobs. But they're wrong. And they have to be called out.
The release of the BNP list doesn't make anyone a victim. The real victims are those who suffer at the hands of racism, not the racists.
