A close relative of mine was bullied out of her job by Muslim youth gangs. Although this happened many years ago, she still lives with the psychological scars to this day. She fears that those youths (now middle-aged) will find out where she lives now and come to attack her if she speaks up about her experiences. When you have seen and experienced these things up close and personal you get a very different perspective on such notions as “diversity is strength”.
I have also lived in liberal/middle class areas, where the schools are still full of mostly white British faces (you see the odd brown and black face, but the white British are still in the majority). I also know well enough the experiences of students in our universities, who see a different side of “multi-culturalism”. Students mingle with people from all parts of the world, most of whom are fluent English speakers and who tend to also have more liberal attitudes to life. It is easy for these people to mingle and become friends. (Of course in some of our universities there is a rather larger Muslim presence and in these institutions the atmosphere tends to be somewhat more complicated).
For the most part, the people who live in these liberal/middle class areas know very little about the experiences of those “common people” who live in the poorer areas. They are not confronted daily with the realities of crime gangs and race replacement – as the saying goes, “ignorance is bliss”. They are not completely ignorant of course, from time to time they will see the odd news story about crime or the odd “isolated” terror attack, but thanks in no small part to the mainstream media’s habit of glossing over such incidents (or failing to mention them at all), they soon go back to their daily lives.
These liberal minded people have been well-schooled in the language of “political correctness”, they believe that those who complain about immigration are “racists”. They feel superior to the “bigots” and “racists”, (the common people), who live in the poorer areas. It’s easy for them to dismiss the fears that plague many of the common people, that Britain is going to one day become a Muslim majority country for example. They have not seen for themselves how quickly the ghettos are growing, and they have not experienced the joys of living in the vicinity of large new mosques.
