or any of their culture for that matter
if you say that immigrants should kowtow to the dominant culture and religion in a country that is predominantly white then you sound like a cock. no amount of backpedaling and attempts at justification can amend that. while it’s a nice dream to think that everyone who moves to a country is sitting around with a little brochure and going “hmm, england sounds nice! oooh fish and chips. or perhaps france, ooh la la!” that’s obviously not the fucking case. immigrants come to new countries for every conceivable reason, and not always because of things under their control. people need their own culture, it’s shockingly unfair to suggest that everyone should accept british norms en masse just because they’re here.
there was a quote posted by ikenbot months and months ago about cultural pride being a defence mechanism for marginalised races, i wish i could find it…
commented on a friend’s status about the men in Woolwich being treated for their gunshot wounds and now some prick is arguing with me.
coz, y’know, saying that keeping someone alive to face the consequences of their actions is wrong of me to say, and telling him that advocating leaving two men to bleed to death in the street is on par with the violent mindset of the maniacs who attacked the man in the first place warrants this response”
“Yes but why should we give these cowards the respect our soldier brave british non terrorist son father brother deserved. Imagine ur father hacked to death then comment back”
“our soldier brave british non terrorist son father brother” …why not just throw “white christian” in there for good measure you bellend. the only information that’s been released about the victim is that he’s a man, and he was wearing a Help For Heroes tshirt, everything else you’ve just assumed to get yourself angrier about the situation.
and if it WAS a relative of mine that had just been hacked to death with a machete (a million thanks to him for that mental image that’ll follow me around london for the forseeable future) i would still be saying the same thing. i want them to live. i want these men questioned about their motives. i want them to get past their frenzied attack frame of mind and cool down to see what they have caused, see the islamic community condemn their actions. i want them to be punished and feel shame for their atrocious behaviour.
