Lawrence verdict: this isn’t justice – it’s politics

By Brendan O’Neill

The cultural elite has exploited and politicised the murder of Stephen Lawrence to a degree that would have made Machiavelli blush

‘Justice has been done.’ So says every newspaper in the land, following the conviction of David Norris and Gary Dobson for the murder of black teenager Stephen Lawrence in 1993. Justice? Are they serious? Judging from the narcissistic catfight amongst various sections of the elite clamouring to claim responsibility for ‘getting’ Lawrence’s killers, involving everyone from tabloid supremo Paul Dacre to Islington’s favourite QC Michael Mansfield to PM David Cameron, this isn’t so much a case of ‘justice has been done’ as ‘justice has been done by me!’. In the Lawrence case, the needs of justice were long ago usurped by the desires of the political and media elites to use this grisly case as a soapbox from which to pronounce their moral superiority in modern Britain

This is how these lads were pursued without any sound evidence apart from boasting on surveillance videos which, actually, contain no admissions. They would if these lads had done it.

That symbol of impartiality, a Judge, who judges based upon the verdict of 12 impartial people, has - without prejudice, of course - ordered, yes ordered the police to "hunt down the 3 or 4 others still at large". Sounds impartial to me.

Rhodesia was not enough. South Africa was not enough. Charlene was not enough. Kriss was not enough. We are coming for you White man. Into your very homelands. And you will not raise neither a hand nor word against your genocide and colonisation by those whom we invite here.

Listening to the conviction and sentencing announcement on the radio news yesterday was quite nauseous.

The carefully chosen words were a non stop tirade of: racists thugs; brutal murder; racist killing etc. repeated a number of times. It reminded me of the ANC propaganda broadcasts into South Africa in the 70s and 80s.

Without a shadow of doubt there is a non stop campaign by the media to cast white people as evil villains in any interaction with black people however trivial the negative consequences towards black people may be.

If anyone falls for this dross then they must be on the same IQ level of the creators of this campaign towards their own people.

It is clear that positions of opinion forming influence are in the hands of the limp wristed left wing loony community and that conservatives have to take the fight to them by expelling them asap and steer the country back onto a course of common sense.

Considering the media style of reporting on the Lawrence case, it may be refreshing, well, sort of*, to read an objective piece of BBC reporting (yes, you read that right) on a case of 'enrichment' gone wrong, or may just 'enrichment.'

*The content is pretty harrowing but still objectively written.

For information, the perpetrators are of the same race as Goliath, 1 Samuel 17. His brothers were his sons, 2 Samuel 21:19-22. Anyone (particularly from the US) who understands racial matters will immediately understand the preceding sentence and its implications for 'enrichment.' EEnders and like programmes may not be up with the 1611 Holy Bible on this topic yet but I guess it's just a matter of time, if present trends continue.

Almost makes you wish you could impose apartheid...

Yes, Laager, Conservatives must take the fight to the enemy within. Radical nationalists get nowhere in Britain because the patriotic types are basically Conservative not radical ideologues.
Unless we get a patriotic breakaway from the Conservatives and UKIP we might as well go home and watch the Telly.
