Fear of Extinction

Article excerpt

In my last column of the year past, I ventured into dangerous territory by asking why two of the most powerful countries of the 19th and 20th centuries have legislated their way to their own extinction. It was about race, and how whites in this century will eventually become a minority in both Britain and America. My colleague Toby Young has since informed me that the reaction was mixed. Toby runs The Spectator on-line, or whatever this somethingway-above-my-head is called.

Some Americans were very rude and crude about the poor little Greek boy's 'racist' musings. But some English readers agreed, and with alacrity. After all, my main point was that there are far more black and brown countries than white ones, so diversity needs to be reversed, not encouraged. Now I read that a Dyke calls the BBC hideously white, using the word white in the manner the 'N' word was used by the Ku Klux Klan in the past.

Mind you, I'm not at all surprised. For the last 30 years we have allowed our society to be shaped by the lowest standards of decency and by the nastiest people. This Dyke is a very nasty piece of work. Again, not at all surprising. Blair's friends are mostly very nasty, very greedy and very immoral. As the Daily Telegraph so correctly pointed out, 'Imagine that instead of declaring that the BBC was hideously white, Dyke had said that the British Olympic team was hideously black.' Back in the Land of the Freebie and Home of the Depraved, professional and college sports are all-black affairs. Basketball, professional and college, is 99.9 per cent black. Football, both professional and college, is 80 per cent black, while track and field is 75 per cent black. Boxing, of course, is completely dominated by blacks and Hispanics, and baseball, the most lucrative of sports, has a majority of blacks and Latinos.

Needless to say, no one has dared say anything as crude as the Dyke did in reverse. But that's America, a place where the battle for free speech has been lost. Not so over here, at least where The Spectator is concerned, although last week a reference to a certain unnamed man as a gigolo was cut on the advice of you-knowwho. And speaking of lawyers, how I agree with the splendid Mary Kenny when she dumped on the late George Carman for taunting Gillian Taylforth and saying that her epitaph could be 'I give good head'. Carman was a bully who defended fat, rich crooks and believed in truth and justice as much as I believe in Tony Blair and his gang. …
