Colonial Inheritance

Nairobi Government Road 1960

It has become fashionable to claim, as has been claimed here on a different thread today, that the current state of post Colonial Africa is in part due to the fact that the Africans inherited an inadequate infrastructure from their white Colonial masters. In this age of political correctness most people tend not to challenge this claims , and allow blatant lies to become an accepted, if somewhat foetid new reality.  However, they remain blatant lies.

More scenes from Nairobi

When the British left Nairobi in the early 1960's it had an economy equal to that of South Korea and a modern fully functioning mid 20th Century infrastructure. You can click here to see images of the Nairobi which the Kenyan people inherited in 1963.  What you can see is a thriving modern city equal to anything you would find in Europe at the time.

So different to what we see today.

An even more dramatic example is Zimbabwe now an economic basket case but once the bread basket of Southern Africa, does the image above of Salisbury 1969 look any less prosperous than any equivalent city in modern Texas?

You can see some film of Salisbury under white rule by clicking here and here that is the city which Mugabe and his gang inherited just over a decade later. 

As can be seen here he infrastructure extended beyond the main cities

An Update on Censorship at Leeds University

Frank Ellis © 2011

My article, Time to Face the Truth about Multiculturalism, first published in heavily censored form in Leeds Student in 2006, is reproduced here without cuts. The full uncensored article has been published on other web sites but generally without an indication of the nature and level of censorship. Those parts of the article which were censored by Leeds Student are indicated below in bold yellow font. They reveal the appalling scale of censorship and leave no doubt at all about just how serious is the problem of censorship in a major British university when discussing issues of race, multiculturalism (multiracialism) and mass non-white immigration. I have no doubt that what befell me at Leeds University has strengthened the hand of the censors enormously. It is now impossible to criticise multiculturalism at any British university without facing some form of quasi-legal or administrative sanction. Clauses in university charters which underline the value of free speech and academic freedom are worthless: they have about as much value as the piece of paper brought back by Neville Chamberlain after the British capitulation at Munich

I would like to clarify one other point. There is a very widespread perception on various Internet sites that I was forced into retirement or that I had no choice but to leave the University of Leeds in the summer of 2006 before the start of the next academic year in October 2006. That is not the case. The next stage in the process to dismiss an academic after he has been suspended is to hold an internal hearing. In my case this would have been some 18 months later (September 2007). There are a whole host of reasons to believe that the University would have lost this hearing. Very soon after I was suspended the University realised that its decision to suspend me – largely under pressure from the then Commission for Racial Equality – had been a serious error. I was informed of this by an anonymous source at the very heart of the University administration. Even now I do not know the identity of this person. Additional information provided by this source turned out to be exceptionally high grade intelligence and confirmed that the University’s position was in complete disarray. At the end of May 2006 the University capitulated. I was now faced with two options: (i). I could return to full time teaching at the start of the next academic year; or (ii). I could retire from the University. The thought of my having to renew working with people who had revealed such appalling intellectual and moral cowardice turned my stomach. After mutually acceptable retirement terms had been agreed - Leeds University paid all my legal costs – I left. What happened was a blessing in disguise. Any individual, who regards the institution of free speech, academic freedom and the pursuit of this thing called Truth as core university principles, is clearly unsuited for teaching and researching in a British university (Frank Ellis, 25th April 2011).

Time to Face the Truth about Multiculturalism

© Frank Ellis 2006

Multiculturalism (multiracialism) is doomed to failure - and is failing - because it is based on the lie that all people, races and cultures are equal; that no one race or culture is better (superior) than any other. I see no evidence for the view that all cultures are equal, but vast amounts against it. To believe that all cultures are equal - and ultimately in the absence of any evidence for, it is the psychology of political fanaticism with which one is dealing here - requires the same hatred and wilful refusal to confront evidence, logic and history that characterised the individuals who believed that Stalin had built paradise on earth when in fact he had exterminated millions of so-called class enemies. When you point out to these people, as I have over the years, that, as a consequence of Uncle Jo’s Final Solution of the Peasant Question, some 11,000,000 (yes 11,000,000!) peasants were slaughtered so as to break the rural way of life and to impose collectivization, all you get are despicable, cowardly evasions along the lines that such numbers are CIA propaganda. Cowardice, evasions, lying, hypocrisy and censorship of views they do not like, all typify the range of responses from what I call the Guardian-reading classes to any evidence that multiculturalism, their Neo-Marxist fantasy, is not working. Indeed it never will work, but when it starts to unravel, as Yugoslavia eventually did, we will all suffer.

Crucial to the multicultural experiment is the assertion that there is no such thing as race; that race has nothing to do with genetics or biology. Here, for example, is what Bhikhu Parekh, the editor of a very nasty anti-white tract, The Future of Multi-Ethnic Britain: Report of the Commission on the Future of Multi-Ethnic Britain (Profile Books, London, 2000), has to say on the subject of race: ‘Race, as is now widely acknowledged, is a social and political construct, not a biological or genetic fact. It cannot be used scientifically to account for the wide range of differences among peoples’ (Parekh, 2000, 63).

In a letter dated 6th September 2001 - a mere five days before we were given a demonstration of what happens when multiculturalism displaces sensible immigration policies in the USA - I wrote to Parekh. Referring to his assertion about race’s being a social and political construct, I sought clarification. ‘I must’, I wrote, ‘confess that it is not at all clear to me that race is “widely acknowledged” to be “a social and political construct”. By whom exactly is this assertion “widely acknowledged”? In the hope of being enlightened I checked your list of secondary literature on pages 378-399 but I could find no reference to any recent study, article or monograph, that would support your assertion (possible of course that I missed the sources). For example, I found none of the following major studies in the field in your bibliography: Jared Taylor, Paved With Good Intentions: The Failure of Race Relations in Contemporary America (1992); Michael Levin, Why Race Matters: Race Differences and What they Mean (1997); Arthur Jensen, The g factor: the Science of Mental Ability (1998); J. Philippe Rushton, Race, Evolution and Behaviour, 3rd edition, (2000); and Jon Entine, Why Black Athletes Dominate Sports and Why We Are Afraid to Talk About it (2000). The Bell Curve is cited, though without the indicative sub-title, Intelligence and Class Structure in American Life, but no attempt is made in the report to refute the Murray & Herrnstein thesis, which, had it been made, might well have provided some basis for your assertion on page 63. Assuming that I have not missed the source(s) in the bibliography, what exactly are the primary scientific sources on which you rely to assert that race is a social and biological construct, as opposed to its being a biological and genetic fact?’ Needless to say, I received no reply from Parekh. I had called his bluff. He knew it and he ran away. (For a comprehensive analysis of the Parekh Report and its anti-white racism, see Frank Ellis, ‘Race, Marxism and the “Deconstruction” of the United Kingdom’, The Journal of Social, Political and Economic Studies, vol 26, No 4, Winter 2001, pp.691-718).

Now the people who believe that race is a social and political construct are like the Marxists who preached “the brotherhood of man” only to see it all unravel in 1914. They remind me of the professional, serial liars who went to the Soviet Union in the 1930s, at the very time when Stalin was killing and killing again, returned to the comforts of the liberal-democratic societies they purported to despise, and then had the repulsive effrontery to insist that Stalin was building a new civilization. So we know the sort of people with whom we are dealing.

One of the high points of 2005 was the publication of a superb article in which the world’s two greatest experts on race and race differences, Professors Arthur Jensen and J. Philippe Rushton, summarised and analyzed the findings on the subject over the last thirty years (see J. Philippe Rushton and Arthur R. Jensen, ‘Thirty Years of Research on Race Differences in Cognitive Ability’, Psychology, Public Policy and Law, Volume 11, Number 2, June 2005, pp.235-294. For background detail on the history of the physical and bureaucratic terror used to silence these pioneering scholars see my entry, ‘Race and IQ’, in Derek Jones, ed., Censorship: A World Encyclopedia, vol 3, Fitzroy Dearborn Publishers, 2001, pp.2008-2010).

Virtually all the data and conclusions presented by Rushton and Jensen attack and effectively destroy the comforting idea that all races are equal and that all differences in black and white educational outcomes are due to white racism or colonialism or any other ad hoc explanation, and that they can be eradicated if we just continue spending millions and millions of dollars. One of the more astonishing findings reported on and analyzed at great length in their long article is the finding, first made at the end of the 1970s, of an average IQ of 70 for sub-Saharan Africa. Now bear in mind that in the American Armed Forces the cut off point for recruitment is an IQ of 80 - lower than that and the recruit is deemed to be incapable of assimilating even basic instructions - and one can see the problem. In the West an individual with an IQ of 70 would be regarded as being very close to, or within the range of, mental retardation.

Now stop, pause and think what this means for a whole continent where the average IQ is 70. How is it possible for a people with such a low average IQ to achieve, let alone to sustain a technologically sophisticated civilization? Nowhere in sub-Saharan Africa - Botswana is a possible exception - do we find any state that conforms to even basic standards of good governance and administrative competence. South Africa started its downward spiral in 1994. Everywhere one looks there is unbelievable corruption and stupidity, superstition and random savagery. To this gruesome list one can add sexual incontinence. Blacks die of AIDS either because they do not believe that AIDS will kill them or because the imperatives of immediate sexual gratification are so urgent and overwhelming that the consequences are disregarded.

AIDS kills Africans because Africans refuse to act, or are unable to act, in ways which are sexually responsible. And in an environment where nearly 50% of the adult population is HIV positive (Swaziland, for example) sexual responsibility means not engaging in multiple, random acts of copulation with your fellow men and women. In fact, the price for survival may well be complete sexual abstinence and then to pray that you never require a blood transfusion. The West has no moral responsibility whatsoever to assist Africa in dealing with AIDS (or new virulent strains of malaria or bilharzia). If Bob Geldof and the hordes of emotional parasites who follow him want to get weepy about Africa’s self-inflicted plight, making a public display of their virtue, fine: go and live there and do not come back when you need medical treatment which is only available in the “racist” West. If Africans refuse to behave responsibly, they condemn themselves to death.

Despite the attempts to censor and to intimidate critics of multiculturalism in the United Kingdom, race difference are not going to go away and eventually social, educational and economic policies will have to reflect the state of our knowledge not the fantasies of people like Parekh and Trevor Phillips and the Guardian-reading constituencies who support them. I agree with Linda Gottfredson: ‘Lying about race differences in achievement is harmful because it foments mutual recrimination. Because the untruth insists that differences cannot be natural, they must be artificial, manmade, manufactured. Someone must be at fault. Someone must be refusing to do the right thing’. (‘What if the Hereditarian Hypothesis is True?’ in Psychology, Public Policy and Law, Volume 11, Number 2, June 2005, p.318, emphasis in the original).

Race matters because whatever Parekh and others maintain it is connected with a whole range of social, economic, cultural and intellectual outcomes some of which are of high importance if we are to maintain the stability and prosperity of our country. Even if race (and sex and sex differences) were social and political constructs, the outcomes would not be identical. The implications of race and race differences for our society can be apprehended by any student who wants to take the time and trouble to find out for himself. In essence this means reading the books I have cited in this article and then following up the secondary literature as I have done, behaving, in other words, as an intelligent, independent thinker and researcher. This independent seeking after data and ideas and then evaluating them is critical.

It is critical because censorship is an essential weapon in the attempt to impose the multicultural agenda on the United Kingdom. The people who plan the BBC’s programming, the hordes of policy makers in the public sector, the universities, the whole gruesome secondary education system, with its teacher indoctrination courses, all know that the diversity brainwashing to which our schoolchildren and university students are subjected in order to promote multiculturalism - or the equally incoherent cult of feminism - would never survive full, open, rational and fearless scrutiny. Any student who relies on the BBC, the Guardian (so that there are no misunderstanding the ridiculous Daily Telegraph is just as bad) and most universities as a source of information concerning issues on race, feminism and multiculturalism can expect to be lied to, misled and misinformed by people who should no better but are too frightened to know better or do not want to know better. Whatever grandiose words universities use in their Charters regarding free speech and the pursuit of truth, the brutal fact remains that when it comes to questions of race, feminism and multiculturalism universities are craven and corrupt. And they know it.

Anyone who has spent time studying the cult of multiculturalism cannot but notice the nauseating hypocrisy and racial double standards that accompany the systematic and organised lying of multiculturalism. When I posed the possibility of a film with the title - No Black Society has Ever Produced a Written Language or Mathematics - I was drawing attention to an existing film, White Men Can’t Jump (1992). In my hypothetical film title - the lines are taken from Professor Michael Levin’s excellent essay ‘Recent Fallacies in Discussions of Race’, (see The Real American Dilemma: Race, Immigration, and the Future of America, ed, Jared Taylor, New Century Books, Oakton, Virginia, 1998, p.69) - I underlined the hypocrisy and double standards of Hollywood which can quite happily make films with titles such as White Men Can’t Jump but would avoid any film with my hypothetical title for fear of giving offence.

This is a racist double standard. Whites can be pilloried but blacks and other non-white racial groups enjoy a protected status. There is much worse of course. Interviewed on BBC Radio Scotland in January 2001, Greg Dyke said that the BBC was ‘hideously white’. Would he, I wonder, in response to the question of whether he would like to live in Brixton, have replied that it was ‘hideously black’. Of course not, but whites, as far as the BBC is concerned, are ‘hideous’. So that’s okay then. Not only does the BBC express racist contempt for the white indigenous majority population - who are WIMPS for putting up with BBC lying - but then insults the viewer by demanding payment for receiving a television signal, even when the signal does not emanate from a BBC transmitter.

Here is another example of racial double standards, once again the BBC is the culprit. During a discussion on the theme of “hate speech” one of my students pointed out to me that on a BBC radio show broadcast in September 2004, a one Jeremy Hardy had said, on air, something along the lines that life in Britain would be better were all people in the British National Party and anyone who voted for the BNP to be shot in the back of the neck. I wrote to the BBC, demanding an explanation and a verbatim transcript of the programme. This is what Hardy said: ‘if you took everyone in the BNP and everyone who votes for them and shot them in the back of the head, [the standard method of execution used by the Bolsheviks, FE] there would be a brighter future for us all.’ This racist, anti-white filth is taken from the same manual of hatred that Julius Streicher, the homosexual sadist and rabid anti-Semitic editor of the Nazi paper, Der Stürmer, used to target Jews. Readers might like to replace all references to the BNP and insert ‘blacks’ or ‘lesbians’ or ‘homosexuals’ and then ask whether the BBC would have broadcast such a programme. I could cite many other examples from the BBC. And I am supposed to believe that the BBC is an impartial and fair organisation? The BBC is no such thing. It is the propaganda arm of a government that wants to destroy ancient English freedoms. The grotesquely overpaid BBC executives know full well that their pampered, protected and under-performing organisation with its diet of celebrity trash and mental junk food would simply not survive in an open and free market. The BBC is a parasite organisation.

I must also mention another case. Last year I made a formal complaint to the Press Complaints Commission (PCC) about an article in the Daily Telegraph. In the article rural, white Americans were referred to as ‘Georgia rednecks’. The use of the word “redneck” by Harry Mount, the Telegraph journalist, to refer to American whites is unquestionably a “prejudicial” and “pejorative reference” and, one, moreover, with which any journalist possessing even a modicum of understanding regarding racial and ethnic naming, as used in America, should be familiar. Certainly, there can be no excuse for a paper such as The Daily Telegraph not being familiar with the nuances of American racial labels. As stated in the introductory sentence to the Code’s second paragraph: ‘It is essential that an agreed code be honoured not only to the letter but in the full spirit’. This racist language with regard to white Americans is made all the more offensive by the fact that The Daily Telegraph would not permit Mount to write about “Georgia niggers”. Mount’s article deliberately singles out American whites for racist abuse.

The PCC judged that since no individual had been named the Daily Telegraph was not guilty of breaking the PCC’s Code of Practice. Strictly speaking the PCC is correct but again you have to ask yourself whether the editor of the Daily Telegraph would permit a journalist to write about ‘Georgia niggers’. The answer is surely no. I also argue that in finding for the Daily Telegraph the PCC violated the very ethos of its own Code of Practice which insists that papers adhere not just to the letter of the code but to its spirit.

It is now quite clear to me that Mr Kennard came to this interview with the conviction that I was a member of the British National Party (BNP) - what if I was? - which possibly explains his clumsy subterfuge. Now I hold no brief for the BNP but I was and I remain deeply disturbed by the fact that the leader of Britain’s fourth largest political party can be arrested and put on trial for remarks made at a private gathering. MacPherson, the author of that wretched report, actually recommended that the law be amended ‘to allow prosecution of offences involving racist language or behaviour involving the possession of offensive weapons, where such conduct can be proved to have taken place otherwise than in a public place’ (Recommendation 39). Think what that would mean for the privacy of your own home. The BNP is a lawfully constituted party registered with the Electoral Commission, pursuing a rational agenda. As far as I am aware it was not the BNP that waged a terrorist campaign in Northern Ireland for thirty years. Nor was it members of the BNP who murdered some 55 people in London on 7th July 2005. If you do not like the BNP, no problem, vote for another party. I thought this was how a liberal democracy was supposed to work. All those dreadful “racist” white people who vote for the BNP have eyes and ears. They know a hawk from a handsaw and they know that all the talk about “vibrant multicultural society” and “diversity” is an ugly metropolitan lie. Quite rightly, they resent being lied to by white middle class “diversity” groupies who live in nice country houses in Norfolk, Hay-on-Wye, Somerset and Perthshire - a million miles from all that wonderful “diversity” - while spitting abuse at others who express their rational misgivings through the ballot box. The awful truth for the BBC is that its organised campaign of censoring BNP success and the lack of basic courtesy in dealing with the BNP’s leader, Nick Griffin has backfired. The Bolshevik Broadcasting Corporation is one of the best recruiting sergeants the BNP has.

One of the more sinister proposals aimed at the BNP was made by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) in July 2004. ACPO proposed that action should be taken against any police officer who joined or who was a member of the BNP. The reason given for this vicious proposal was that the police have ‘to promote racial equality’. Rubbish. It is not the job of the police to promote the ideological programme of the Left. The police exist to prevent and to fight crime. ACPO’s proposal was a direct attack on political freedom since it involves the police in policing politics. It is yet another example of the creeping Sovietization of the United Kingdom. In the light of ACPO’s sinister attack on the BNP, I would ask readers to consider the following extract from Alan Bullock’s masterful study of Hitler: ‘The moment Göring entered office he began a drastic purge of the Prussian State service, in which hundreds of officials were dismissed and replaced by men who could be relied on by the Nazis. Göring paid particular attention to the senior police officers, where he made a clean sweep in favour of his own appointments, many of then active S.A. or S.S. leaders’ (Alan Bullock, Hitler: A Study in Tyranny (1952), Penguin, Harmondsworth, England, 1983, pp.260-261).

The BNP is the only party in this country that articulates the thoroughly justified hopes and fears of the white indigenous population regarding the legal/illegal immigrant invasion. Yes, in case it had escaped your attention, we are being invaded. Consider that the number of illegals in this country could be as high as 1.5 million. It should be a matter of the highest national priority to hunt these people down, round them up and deport them. “Diversity is not our strength”. On the contrary it shall be our destruction. One of the more alarming findings from the 2001 census was that for the first time in our history whites are a minority in Birmingham and Leicester. This is the beginning of the racial and cultural dispossession of our people, my people, my country. Am I expected to celebrate this dispossession as one of the benefits of “diversity”? I shall not. It fills me with dread, fear and foreboding.

Meanwhile the Labour government, aided and abetted by cowardly and despicable Tories, will push through ever harsher legislation to silence critics and where that fails, they will subject them to legal and bureaucratic intimidation. This is the context to the Griffin and Collet trial. Indeed, the process of turning Britain into some kind of Peoples Democracy, along the lines of the old German “Democratic” Republic, is well under way. My freedoms, among them the all important free speech, are only secure when my fellow citizens can exercise the same freedoms. An attack on their freedoms is manifestly an attack on mine. Regardless of what one thinks of the BNP’s leader, if Griffin can be treated in this manner, none of us is safe from the Police. In the words of Martin Niemöller: ‘First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out - because I was not a communist; then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out - because I was not a socialist; then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out - because I was not a trade unionist; then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out - because I was not a Jew; then they came for me - and there was no one left to speak out for me’. You have been warned.

South African farmer dies of neglect following September 2010 attack

Attacked, tortured Afrikaner smallholder Chris Bronkhorst, 67, dies from maltreatment and gross neglect in government-hospice:  ‘surrounded by uncaring staff’…

April 24 2011 – WALKERVILLE. Family-friends write: "We have been informed this morning that Chris Bronkhorst has died early this morning after a long suffering. Rest in Peace Chris. You will be remembered." Indeed the suffering of this disabled, 67-year-old, impoverished pensioner has been great.

Bronkhorst Chris tortured smallholder dies from maltreatment in hospice May24 2011. His ordeal started on September 29, 2010, when four young black males attacked Bronkhorst at his Walkerville smallholding --  although he was partially disabled from a stroke and completely unable to defend himself. He was brutally tortured with melting plastic, was whipped with a sjambok and endured other tortures so horrific that the news media is still unable to publish it. The attack was only confirmed to the news media four days later, on November 2 2010, by the SAPS and only after the family had told the news media about it and the police were pressured into releasing the information.

Above is what he looked like shortly after his ordeal. However this did not end his torture. Shocking images have since emerged of Chris Bronkhorst's maltreatment in a public hospice. He continued to suffer due to the maltreatment and neglect at the hospice where he was moved after his wounds were healed at the Milpark Hospital a month earlier.

When he arrived at the hospice, all his wounds had healed: Family friend Magda Cracknell wrote that while Chris was mentally traumatised and “uncommunicative' after his transfer from hospital, his wounds had completely healed: “There were no pressure sores on his body when he was moved to the hospice.. yet within weeks, a leg had to be amputated because of untreated pressure sores. He was surrounded by uncaring staff. This suffering man and his poor family, the ordeal just doesn’t stop for them.’  The great many pictures taken by family to record the neglect at the hospice showed the extent of Chris Bronkhorst’s continuing suffering: his buttocks were blackened from untreated pressure-sores, his limbs and back showed festering, puss-filled, gaping wounds. He suffered constant pain and was kept sedated and thus uncommunicative with morphine injections.

NOTE: I have included Chris Bronkhorst's death as a farm murder because, despite any contributory factors it was the September 2010 attack which set the chain in motion which eventually led to his death seven months later

Flesh of my flesh, Blood of my blood

Donna and Rachel Cave

I see that the two daughters of Britain's first elected BNP Mayor have denounced their father, changed their names by deed poll and sold their story to the Daily Mail.

These women are followers in a well trod tradition, in Germany in the 1930's, many children who had been politically brainwashed would betray parents who did not conform to the ideology of the times.  The same happened in the Soviet Union under Lenin, and in particular under Stalin.

I am sure that the two women pictured above are deeply proud of the historical precedent they have followed.

Those Moments of Fear, Loneliness and Despair

But another voice inside me called out: Someone has to stand up (Harry Wu, Bitter Winds)

What sort of an education can you get from a professor who is scared stiff of losing his job? (Alexander Solzhenitsyn, First Circle)

© Frank Ellis 2011

Totalitarian regimes strive to impose an ideological world view that can explain all the mysteries of being, the meaning of History (always upper case) and the path that must be taken in order that this meaning be realised. They also offer some vision, however vague and flawed, of the New World to sustain believers. Derived from various strands of old and new Marxism, multiculturalism manifests all the totalitarian impulses of Marxism-Leninism; free speech must be controlled; obvious lies are propagated (race and race differences are social and political constructs); private property is theft; and the white race is uniquely evil and depraved. The multicultural view of the world is so brazenly absurd in its assumptions, so irrational and so flagrantly at odds with the way people have lived over millennia, and the observed results of evolution and history, that multiculturalism is instinctively and rationally rejected by a majority. Multiculturalism is a minority cult and it is inherently oppressive. Like their Marxist-Leninist predecessors, those who actually believe in multiculturalism accept that harsh measures are justified because, as far as they are concerned, they are building a New World. Today’s victims – whites – are to be sacrificed so that some multiracial paradise can be built.

The oppression inflicted on whites in the name of multiculturalism takes many forms. For example, whites in the public sector, especially in primary, secondary and tertiary education, are expected to accept the multicultural agenda without any reservations. You can hold any views on multiculturalism provided they are within the politically correct boundaries set by the BBC and the Guardian. So you are duty bound to accept that black academic failure has nothing to do with blacks having a lower mean IQ than whites and everything to do with all forms of open and covert racism. Whites are to blame. If you publicly dissent, your employer will disown you and seek to punish you for your dissent. Those parts of University charters which stipulate the requirement to protect free speech and academic freedom are now worthless, certainly at Leeds University where this author used to teach, since university Vice Chancellors lack the stomach to take on the nation haters. It is so much easier and more satisfying to crucify a lone dissenter. Likewise, you must accept that mass non-white immigration is a good thing, something that brings all kinds of benefits to impoverished whites. Again, if you dissent and you work in the police, a school, university you can expect to be persecuted for your dissent.

The pressure on whites to conform publicly to something they instinctively reject and resent exerts a devastating effect on their psychological well being and their general levels of happiness. Nobody wants to talk about the source of this unhappiness; nobody wants to admit that multiculturalism makes them personally very unhappy; that it destroys something inside of them; that it isolates them and alienates them from their fellow citizens. Here are two brief accounts of how real-existing multiculturalism has affected the lives of some of my former students.

Elizabeth, you are a teacher. You became a teacher for practical, noble and honourable reasons: practical because you have to earn a living; but noble and honourable since you want to see young minds growing, young minds enraptured by the world about them, eager to learn. So what has happened?  I warned you to stay away from the state sector but you told me that I was a snob and that you felt obliged to go where you were most needed.  How long have you been a teacher? Ten years or so and in those ten years everything has changed. Now you hate it. You have never read Macpherson yet you are bombarded with endless directives and memos about the need to promote diversity. On your way to work you see all too clearly the benefits of diversity. In the classroom you have to deal with it. In the staff room you lie about how well things are going. I know this because you told me. Your headmistress is a spineless time server and in any dispute between you and a ‘young person’, as they are now known, you will be sacrificed. If the ‘young person’ is black you are defenceless and doomed. In those conservations which we all have with our self and soul you know full well that diversity is obscene. Teaching or rather being a zoo keeper is slowly destroying you. And do you think your husband likes seeing what is happening to his wife, watching as she is slowly broken? Day after day in your place of work you have to remain silent in the face of multicultural provocation and propaganda. You crave the truth, just one word that would break the dreadful tyranny of the Lie; one word that would liberate your soul. I admire you Elizabeth. You still have these leftist tendencies - you were like that at Leeds - but there is a raw, unsullied decency about you which others have exploited. God bless and good luck Elizabeth.

William, you are a police officer. You work in London. I remember your enthusiasm when you graduated from Leeds with a good degree. Do you remember that time when I physically tore your essay to shreds and threw it in the bin because it was total rubbish? I made you work son. I did not spare the rod.  When you graduated you shook my hand, thanked me for being a task master and we sank a few gallons of ale. Your story is not a happy one either. Like Elizabeth you have been ground down by the joys of diversity which, of course, you confront on a daily basis. William, now you hate your job. It is destroying you as well, filling your heart with bitterness and anger. How many times have you seen black thugs escape with a caution when harsher penalties were justified?  If I remember correctly the worst thing about your job is your having to work with blacks who are members of the Metropolitan Black Police Officers’ Association. You resent seeing inadequately qualified blacks promoted and having to take orders from incompetents. I told you so. Now you grasp, through experience, the disgusting double standard that is at work. God bless and good luck William.

Fear of being sacked, fear of being ostracised, fear of legal sanctions and fear of being isolated are primary weapons that all totalitarian regimes deploy against enemies and dissenters. Exactly the same methods are used against those who oppose multiculturalism. The point that needs to be made here is that I, we as dissenters, people who have had enough, are not alone. Multicultural zealots might give the impression that they are all powerful but they are not. They fear the lone individual who challenges their creed. What they really fear is not so much the truth - multiculturalism is based on lies and all good liars know the truth – but the public example of one man or one woman who stands up to be counted. The lone man or woman who stands up to be counted breaks the spell of the Lie and reminds the rest that the Lie is not all powerful; that they will not live by the Lie; that you cannot live by the Lie. Their example is an act of leadership, an act of spiritual and intellectual defiance, an act that will be witnessed and that will inspire others to act. Never forget people that our cause is just and honourable. Our enemies know that as well: that is why they hate us and why they devote so much time to denying and perverting our history to serve their foul purposes.

Today, on England’s day, which is Easter Saturday, we remember one very special example of moral, spiritual and physical courage but there are inspirational mortals as well: Alexander Solzhenitsyn, the students of the White Rose, Harry Wu, Enoch Powell, Irina Ratushinskaia, Terry Waite and Ray Honeyford. Let us strive to be worthy of their example when fear, despair and the sense that we are abandoned to loneliness threaten to overwhelm us.

Are you of the English blood? Were you ever meant to be a slave? Resist these liars and nation haters; resist them with all your heart, mind and soul.

"They've Got Muslamic Ray Guns"

Following his earlier article on the betrayal of young white girls in Blackpool, Mister Fox continues to focus on the threat posed by Muslim paedophiles. 
There is a yawning gap between the elites and the people; between what the elites say is happening and the truth, the reality. They will do anything in their power, no matter how dishonest and deceitful to hide or distort the truth.  A recent video of an EDL supporter being mocked by opponents through youtube is a example of how functionaries of the elites try to discredit those who see what is really going on and want to rescue young White girls from widespread organised rapes.  The victim had had a few bevvies and did not express himself clearly. 

The truth is that large numbers of our women are being abused, lured into prostitution, gang-raped and worse by outsiders, Our elites know it is happening but try to cover it up or ridicule those few honourable people who try to stop it, such as the unfortunate victim of Youtube  sting.

He was objecting to something deeply evil which is being covered up by the police and obfuscated by elites.  He did not pronounce the “p” very clearly in rape so  it sounds like ray. The autotune changed his words to “They've got Muslamic ray guns" when what he meant was “ They've got Muslamic rape gangs”.  He was there to defend our young girls – an honourable and  noble cause. 

His mockers are trying to keep it covered up.  They are the real haters, imaging how much one must hate a people to cover up the rape of its women

He said Iraqi law but obviously meant sharia law.  The original interview was with Iranian broadcaster Press TV which is an Iranian state broadcaster funded by government and acting against us within our own country.  The voice over mocked the EDL.  (1)

You only need to look at their present and previous presenters, Trotskyists, corrupt British politicians and fanatical Jew haters. They once tried to interview Green Arrow and other patriots to stitch them up. Andrew Gilligan, media elite, of the Evening Standard who made his name by exposing the WMDs and the “sexed up” document was involved.

Several Establishment functionaries like comedian Russell Howard have also bullied this lad obediently mocking what the elites don't like.  He would not dare mock what elites promote like, he would not mock Islam, or his career would be terminated as was that of massively popular Benny Hill.

Benny’s ITV series was cancelled by cultural elite Michael Grade because it wasn’t “politically correct.” Twenty years later  Royal Mail rejected a stamp in his honour to commemorate the 50th anniversary of ITV.

The interview was a clear case of media misrepresentation. In the original Press TV interview, when the lad says “rape gangs” the rape part is distorted but he immediately follows up with the sentence that 15 year old girls are being raped.   What he says in his inebriated fashion is correct, Islam is spreading throughout Europe, they do want sharia law and very young white infidel girls are being raped all around us some as young as 11 and we do want to keep Britain British.  He is a British hero! (1)

The most serious social problems problems we are facing have been imported into our country by our political masters. For years, they have covered up crime against us while they themselves live in safe and exclusive areas.  Meanwhile they have introduced Race laws which they have fostered upon us, enabling “aliens” to prosecute Whites who remonstrate with them, for racism.  The elites have systematically set up about oppressing and persecuting White British people till they need real courage and will to throw off their shackles and protect children from what is going on

Totalitarian edicts are imposed upon us by the likes of Judge Macpherson with his Stalinist anti-police report and Sir David Calvert-Smith, who in 2005, led an inquiry for the Commission of Racial Equality into how the police forces of England and Wales  deal with “racism”. Calvert-Smith did not investigate whether the police were racist or not:  “racism is a given", the deeply prejudiced man zealot insisted.  Such men turned the police into an anti-White force biased in favour of ethnics.   Those who defended the young girls from rape are  the ones who are prosecuted.  The rapists know it, and it t gives them confidence to do whatever they want.  In a natural society where immigrants were not given favourable treatment over natives by the legal system they would not dare do what they do.(2)

The anti-White racism in the police was introduced by Judge Macpherson, Sir David Calvert-Smith and fast-tracked, careerist chief police officers.

By exposing what is happening as I reported in my last article, the  Times must have re-found their old zeal to crusade for social justice. That is what they once did so well, in 1855 W.T.Stead broke a major story when he exposed the trade in child prostitution. As now the government knew of the problem but turned a blind eye, then to protect the trade's upper class clientèle  now to stop a civil war.  Stead's article: "The Maiden Tribute of Modern Babylon" opened respectable society's eyes to London vice — dirty brothels, women procuring children, drugs, and padded rooms, where upper-class rakes could enjoy "the exclusive luxury of revelling in the cries of an immature child." 

But after 60 years of  'anti-racist' propaganda and brainwashing is anyone listening?  From the time they were schoolchildren our people have been taught to think brown people are wonderful and to trust them.  They are educated by the state so young White girls think its racist to shun the advances of older Muslims. But it's their assailants who are racist; it is they who see white girls as slags and “easy meat” who because they are not Muslim but from a rival community can be used for sex and prostitution, even as young as 11, while the predators protect their own children.

People are told we, Nationalists, make lies up because of our “hate” and racism: They lump us all together, Traditional Conservatives, EDL and BNP under the same labels. However, its the other way round and finally evidence is now coming to light which vindicates us. 

However, a few years ago we were mocked for saying what what has now been revealed: 

On 21st December 2005 the UAF alleged “... false BNP claims of so called racist targeting by members of the Muslim population of young white girls for sex and prostitution in Yorkshire, West Yorkshire police have said that after thorough investigation they have found “no evidence of systematic abuse of young women.”

“In Bradford the BNP have sought to wage a racist and anti-muslim campaign - particularly with the suggestion that there was a large-scale phenomenon of exclusively Asian men grooming white school girls for sex.”
they went on to claim  “The reality is, however, that the so-called phenomenon is a myth.” they most likely knew that statement was a lie when they made it, but what is the well-being, or indeed the lives of a few white girls, when the future of the multiracial dream is at stake 

Furthermore, West Yorkshire police claimed they “do not accept that there is a major problem of this nature in this county and have not seen any evidence to sway” them from this view. The behaviour of Yorkshire police should be investigated because in 2003 they claimed to be looking into grooming of young girls. (3)

The TUC and Searchlight published a guide to fighting “racism”: stating “The impression that the far right make up lie after lie is an important task. We want to be in the position that voters simply don’t trust anything the far right say.”

So whilst those who should have been protecting society were engaged in discrediting the BNP, the crimes against the white community continued:

Apart from grooming children, there are many of rapes of older women.  We even  have sex traffickers.  Their poor young victims are conned into thinking they are going to find a better life, instead they are sold into slavery, exploited and abused, just like our girls, the difference is, no-one cares about our girls, the government hasn’t put together a huge operation to stop the offences taking place in our own country as they don't want to start a race war.

Some newspaper reports about delaying the famous Channel Four Edge of the City documentary:

The Mail 28 May 2004 reported:
“Channel Four has announced today it is not going to show a British National Party (BNP) European election broadcast amid fears it would stir up racial hatred.
The five-minute television broadcast features the mother of a teenage girl who claimed her daughter was drugged and gang-raped by Asian men in Keighley, West Yorkshire.

It was based on claims made by a Channel 4 documentary that Asian men in Bradford are grooming and targeting white girls as young as 11 for sex and drug abuse.

This programme was also pulled after West Yorkshire Police said it would risk inciting community disorder in the area.  A Five spokesman said today: "Having viewed the European Parliamentary Election Broadcast submitted by the BNP, Five has taken the decision not to transmit it as we feel it is likely to stir up racial hatred, as prohibited by the existing Programme Code." (3)

On 9 August 2004, The Guardian's Anthea Milnes interviewed programme maker Anna Hall who was  “was devastated when her Channel 4 film, which investigated allegations that young white girls in Bradford were being groomed for sex, was used as right wing propaganda.”

Propaganda … “and the chief constable of West Yorkshire warned that its screening could provoke community disorder in the run-up to the local and European elections.”

The controversy centred on the film's claims that men - most of them British Asians - in Bradford and neighbouring Keighley were grooming under-age white schoolgirls for sex.

The explosive grooming story nearly didn't make the short list. Hall had already filmed several other stories through the children's department which she was unable to screen for legal reasons. "We weren't looking for this issue," she says. "It just kept surfacing. Social workers said, 'You can't do that story because it's too difficult.' What did they mean by 'too difficult'? Too racially sensitive?

The social workers she spoke to were appalled and frustrated, but also frightened of becoming targets of violence if they spoke out publicly, as were the mothers she spoke to.

What emerges from these women's accounts, and from the testimony of two girls, one of them currently being groomed, is disturbing. Men from Bradford's Asian community, they claim, are targeting girls from 11 or 12 years up, taking them out in their cars, and giving them alcohol and gifts. The girls are flattered into believing that the men love them. Subsequently, they might be given heroin and crack cocaine and date-rape drugs, raped vaginally and anally, and in some cases, abducted and gang-raped... Many of the girls either do not think they are being abused, or have been so heavily drugged that they cannot recall clearly what has happened, or are intimidated by what will happen to them and their families if they do speak out.

Groups such as Unite Against Fascism, the 1990 Trust, and the National Assembly Against Racism began to flood Channel 4 with requests to delay transmission. The Chief Constable of West Yorkshire, Colin Cramphorn, joined the call, and Channel 4 complied. Both the police and Channel 4 stressed that the issue was the timing, so close to local and European elections. The mainstream press were quick to respond, accusing Channel 4 variously of naive scheduling, of handing a political coup to the BNP, of being politically motivated in withdrawing the film, of cravenness, and of self-censorship.”

The police blurred the truth since 2004 by claiming the grooming was being done by both whites and Asians in the area, whereas in fact the overwhelming majority involved were Asian. They tried to prevent civil war breaking out but all they have done is inflame the Whites they tried to deceive.
In 2007 The Times reported:  
“It was a very uncomfortable scenario, not least because many of these crimes had an identifiable racial element: the gangs were Asian and the girls were white. The authorities, in the shape of politicians and the police, seemed reluctant to acknowledge this aspect of the crimes; it has been left to the mothers of the victims to speak out.

I was told by one police officer that he did not ‘want to start a race riot’ by arresting Pakistani men for sexual offences,” Maureen said. During the six months that Jo was in the clutches of these men, they raped, beat and abused her to the point where, says her mother, she did not even know who she was any more. Eventually, after she was attacked by Hussain and Naveed with an iron bar, Jo somehow found the courage to report them to police, and they were arrested. The case took 16 months to come to court. In the meantime, other pimps, undeterred by the impending trial, continued to go about their business.”
The police have a duty of care to the public so what tough measures did they take? Lancashire police sent letters to 70 men who were believed to be spending an unusual amount of time with young girls. The letters warned the men that the girls are underage as if they didn't know! The men are required to sign the letter, confirming they have received and read it.” 
In 2009 Three men were been jailed for a total of 18 years for the “calculating and evil” sexual abuse of a young teenage girl.  A court heard they saw the 14-year-old, who was running wild, as easy prey and plied her with drugs, alcohol and cigarettes.

Mohammed Zackriya, 21, of Springfield Road, Keighley, was jailed for eight years for oral rape and five offences of sexual activity with a child.
Zackryia’s barrister, Nikki Peers, said the girl was sexually experienced from an early age as if it were a justification for his behaviour.

Judge Benson lifted an order prohibiting the media from reporting how the jury were quizzed briefly over any connections they may have with the far-right British National Party before the trial started.  A concern had been expressed that BNP leader Nick Griffin's explosive claims several years ago that gangs of Asian men were grooming white girls for sex might influence their judgement.” (4)

When the police are not intimidated or stopped from above they can protect young girls as the Telford police did. “Eight men from the Pakistani community in Telford, Shropshire appeared in court on Friday charged with a wide range of serious sexual offences, including trafficking girls within the UK for sexual exploitation. It is the first time anyone has appeared in court in Britain charged under Article 58 of the 2003 Sexual Offences Act, which outlaws trafficking within the UK..
The campaign  My Dangerous Loverboy commenced last April, following the arrest of five of the Telford men, that the charges brought against them represented "a really significant breakthrough" in the recognition of internal trafficking as a real issue in Britain today.
"The girls are disoriented, cut off from family and friends and systematically raped by large groups of men," Virginia Heath wrote on the campaign group's website. "They often wake up with no idea of where they are in the UK, let alone how to escape this nightmare world."
The men in court yesterday deny more than 50 charges against them. According to the Shropshire Star, the alleged offences took place between 2007 and 2009.

The "internal trafficking" charges relate to the alleged transport of girls to a variety of locations - including a college, a fish and chip shop and a churchyard - where men paid to have sex with them. Police claim the girls were not always paid cash in exchange for sex, but instead were given food, alcohol and mobile-phone credit.” (3)

If White men try to protect our women they are warned off by the police, and branded racist by the local papers. Unless men, women and children protest in groups to confront the Muslims and the police they will get no justice - the law is against them.

 What the mother said at the end is a verdict on Judge Macpherson and David Calvert-Smith: “The police kept quiet in order not to feed a growing racism, or out of fear of being labelled racists themselves" at 2:05

Alison Shaw exposed the attitude of young Pakistanis to young White women in Britain. (5)

The threat is apparent now because the truth is starting to come out and people are realising how dire the situation is. Foreign Criminal gangs have a walk-over in Britain with only a small percentage brought to 'justice', housed in prisons at our expense, before being unleashed to start again. These infiltrators are working  in care homes, at airports (despite repeatedly threatening us with terrorism), they are doctors, teachers, taxi drivers (pushing their White competitors out of business), post office workers, public transport staff, drug gangs, child abusers and muggers. As more cases involving rape-gangs with similar names or suspects of Asian appearance, people realise that there is a race war against us nurtured by the elites with one-sided oppressive race laws, education and media falsification of the truth. Hence the need to prevent the public perceiving what is happening.

As evil has crept out of the shadows into the limelight, will those it aims to destroy rise up in defiance? The audacity wakes the spirit of our ancestors which has lain dormant, but is now rousing ready to burst forth. We have it in our power, if we have it in our hearts, to defend this Land our forefathers fought for, to combat the biggest internal threat in our history.

As it stands we are demographically doomed in 50 years, unless we change things now. 

We have to tell the truth. Tell the truth and shame those who don't want to hear it; shame those who prefer the comfortable lie to the uncomfortable truth; shame those who prefer the fashionable spin to the harsh reality. (6)

I urge you to research for yourselves and when convinced join the resistance against state oppression of our anger to save our people.  We still officially have the democratic right to protest and we are responsible for protecting our communities from attack by rival communities who do not belong here. 

In Whiteness and Gender ethnologist Maria Bäckman exposes the treatment of Blonde Swedish girls. According to The Brussels Journal 6% of Swedish women are raped ever year mainly by Muslim aliens.

Celebrating St George

On St George's Day Alan O'Reilly revisits the story of England's patron Saint

Patron Saint of England – and English Football - the original Crocodile Dundee1

“Then said St George: ‘Fair daughter, doubt ye no thing hereof for I shall help thee in the Name of Jesus Christ.’  She said: ‘For God’s sake, Good Knyghte, go your way, and abide not with me, for ye may not deliver me.’  Thus as they spake together the dragon appeared and came running to them, and St George was upon his horse, and drew out his sword and garnished him with the sign of the cross, and rode hardily against the dragon which came towards him, and smote him with his spear and hurt him sore and threw him to the ground…
“And St George slew the dragon and smote off his head, and commanded that he should be thrown into the fields and they took four carts with oxen that drew him out of the city.”
Described by Jacobus de Voragine, Bishop of Genoa in The Golden Legend, 1230 AD, the above episode is apparently the basis of the familiar account of St George and the Dragon.  Princess Sabra is the young lady mentioned but she appears to be an embellishment and sadly contrary to romantic expectations, St George does not win her hand in marriage in the original narrative - he had more pressing business to hand.

A ruined tower, situated north of St George’s Bay where modern Beirut stands on the southern arm, traditionally marks the scene of the conflict.  It took place in approximately 303 AD, when according to historian Pliny, the area was infested with crocodiles.

George may therefore have killed one while on his way to the Eastern Court of Emperor Diocletian, located at Nicomedia2, now Izmit, about sixty miles east of Istanbul.

The deed comes as no surprise when we consider George’s background.

Noble Beginnings

George was born in 270 AD to Christian parents in Lydda, now Lod, located on the Plain of Sharon, Palestine.  His father was Anastasius3, a distinguished Roman army officer who was appointed Governor of all Palestine at the age of twenty-five, with three thousand armed soldiers at his command.  George grew up as a soldier-saint.  A contemporary writer said of him4:

“When St George had completed his twentieth year he was so exceedingly strong and valiant that he was the leader in battle and there was no one among all the company of soldiers who could be compared with him for strength and beauty.  And the grace of God was with him, and He gave him beauty and strength that all those who saw him marvelled at his power and youth…and God was with him in all his ways.”

George was at that time a general in the Roman Army, in command of five thousand men.  None other than Emperor Diocletian himself had conferred this honour on the young man, so greatly impressed was he by George’s bravery and leadership.

Imperial Treachery

But Diocletian was susceptible to less honourable influences.  His subordinate and Emperor of the East, Galerius Maximus was a confirmed pagan and in 303 AD persuaded his superior to issue an Edict calling for the extermination of Christianity throughout the Empire.  The persecution that followed was savage.  Ten thousand Christians are said to have been massacred in Caerleon-on-Usk alone, the organised centre of the British Church and thirty-eight thousand in the eastern half of the Empire.  Possibly as many perished in the western half, including those in Britain5.

On learning of the Edict, George threw in his lot with the intended victims.  He divested himself of his rank and worldly possessions* and journeyed to Nicomedia to intercede with Diocletian on behalf of his suffering brethren, to plead for their lives and obtain for them freedom of worship.  He sought for this purpose to utilise his friendship with Diocletian gained on the field of battle but for others only, not for himself.

*Save for his personal arms, with which it appears he slew the crocodile.

Yet George knew that despite Diocletian’s former regard for him, his mission could end in death.  He said to friends before setting out for Nicomedia, “If ye are alive and hear that I am dead, do me the kindness, for Christ’s sake, to take my body to my native city and bury it.”

These wishes would be faithfully carried out.

A Bold Witness

By the time George reached Nicomedia, its bishop, Anthimus had been executed and many believers had been terrified into silence by the sight of instruments of torture publicly displayed but when George saw a copy of the decree posted up for public inspection, while both emperors were in the city, he was “stimulated by a divine zeal, and excited by an ardent faith…tore it to shreds as a most profane and wicked act.”

The contemporary historian Eusebius states that, “St George was the first of those at that time who thus distinguished himself, and…in his endurance of such results as naturally followed a daring act of this kind, he maintained an untroubled and undisturbed demeanour to his very last breath.”

His ardour was unabated when he stood before Galerius and his sixty-nine governors. 

He boldly declared, “I am a Christian, and I believe on my Lord Jesus Christ; whatsoever ye desire to do unto me, that do” and St Ambrose, Bishop of Milan, 374-97 AD, states, “George, the most faithful soldier of Jesus Christ, when religion was by others concealed, alone adventured to confess the name of God, Whose heavenly grace infused such constancy into him that he not only scorned the tyrants, but contemned their torments.”

Galerius and his governors sentenced George to death and Diocletian, sadly, acquiesced in the verdict.  After a period of imprisonment and torture in an effort to force him to recant, the martyr was beheaded on April 23rd, 304 AD.

When he came to the spot where he would be executed, he asked leave of his guards to pray for his persecutors.  Ever the soldier, he then turned to them said, “Come with me, brethren, and fulfil your order and do what ye have to do.”

The date has of course gone down in history as St George’s Day. 

Association with England

According to The Royal Society of St George6, “It was in the year 1415 AD that St. George became the Patron Saint of England when English Soldiers under Henry V won the battle of Agincourt.”

The Society states that George was officially beatified by the Roman Catholic Church but the term ‘Saint’ George may well have been coincident with the widespread mourning that followed his death, which has been further commemorated by the propagation far and wide of St George’s ‘device’ or knightly emblem, the familiar red cross on a white background.  It probably signified George’s regard for the blood sacrifice at Calvary of the Lord Jesus Christ and the sinless purity of the Saviour’s life on earth.

England’s adoption of St George’s emblem as its national emblem may therefore indeed pre-date St George, and derive from the arrival of the earliest Christians to these shores during the first century AD, including Joseph of Arimathea.  The striking and simple symbolism of the St George Cross could well have appealed to many early believers.

England’s association with St George is much more direct, however.  He visited York during his military service and was welcomed by the Christian Empress Helena, mother of George’s comrade-in-arms, Constantine, who later became Emperor.  St George’s visit is commemorated by the shield emblazoned with his emblem that hangs over the gate of York – one of many instances where the soldier-martyr’s ensign figures in English heraldry, pomp and circumstance – though none more widely celebrated than on present-day football terraces!

But there is a greater cause.

Not in Vain

Like his Saviour, George achieved much in his death.  By it, he slew a monster more dangerous than any saurian; the dragon of persecution.  Diocletian abdicated in 305 AD and Imperial Rome’s large-scale persecution of Christians ended.

It wasn’t the end of persecution per se but in coming ages, God would raise up other men to stand, both against tyranny and for the witness of the Lord Jesus Christ, after the manner of St George7:

“I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
“Straining upon the start.  The game's afoot:
“Follow your spirit; and, upon this charge
“Cry God for Harry, England and St George!”
From Henry V, Act 3, Scene 1

Or in the words of St Paul, 1 Corinthians 16:13:

“Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong”

An Exhortation

God is still looking for men – and women - of stature who will stand and strive for the Lord Jesus Christ in these days of rapidly encroaching heathenism, as even God’s enemy Pharoah of Egypt recognized only too well, Exodus 10:11:

“Go now ye that are men, and serve the LORD; for that ye did desire”

Will you be among them?
