There's nothing like a xenophobe trying to justify his xenophobia, is there? Or trying to decouple himself when he's made statements like:Xenophobia is the fear and distrust of that which is perceived to be foreign or strange. Xenophobia can involve perceptions of an ingroup towards an outgroup and can manifest itself in suspicion of the activities of others, and a desire to eliminate their presence to secure a presumed purity and may relate to a fear of losing national, ethnic or racial identity.
Xenophobia can also be exhibited in the form of an "uncritical exaltation of another culture" in which a culture is ascribed "an unreal, stereotyped and exotic quality". The terms xenophobia and racism are sometimes confused and used interchangeably because people who share a national origin may also belong to the same race. Due to this, xenophobia is usually distinguished by opposition to foreign culture.
I have examinied my life and cannot identify how in any way I fall into this group.
The last 19 years of workin life was spent working overseas in a great many different countries and have a large number of friends of all races and creeds. I never ever had any problems with those I worked with and those that I met and often socialised with after work.
Even today after retiring about 50% of my friends are from different countries and cultures, we get on extremely well.
Oh and guess what, I even get on well with British people.
Q1 What is it about the EU which makes me a Brexiteer?
A1 Being dictated to by completely unelected people who cannot be deposed.
What we do not need is free EU movement where criminals are entering the UK for easy pickings.
We do not need Big Issue sellers, FFS I have never heard of any big issue seller using the so called job to get into proper employment.
No I want proper control of our immigration system.
If we need them let them in, if we do not don't
In every country that I have worked in none have given foreigners free medical care, free housing, free schooling or free interpretation services.
Why should the UK?
More than 27,000 crimes were committed by EU citizens in the UK last year and more than 30,000 are expected this year.
And because of EU rules and human rights laws only a fraction of the criminals are removed from the country.
It will fuel concerns over the impact of immigration on towns and cities, especially following the two most recent EU expansions in to Eastern Europe.
How about other crimes:
Foreigners 'commit fifth of crime in London'
I mean, how else do you want to run a horse and cart through the notion of 'I'm not racist, me. Some of my mates are Pakis/Coons/Yids'? You've spent countless posts on here shining a light on the reasons for voting to eave the EU as being centred on your barely concealed moral distrust and dislike of foreigners, or at least ones who don't fit some sort of meaningless paradigm of acceptability, when UK nationals are provenly just as heinous and immoral, in many cases even more. You've also tried to convince us that shady organisations on the continent have got it in for us and are trying to impoverish and enslave the UK in some or other massive superstate where we'll all be forced to eat garlic and speak Belgian. You have nil proof of any of your misapprehensions, save for some thin, post-colonial tendril of fear and hatred coiled around your big-old-Billy-Britain soul, and your nodding-dog belief of what the right-wing press say. You can't accept that you shat your bolt and possibly allowed thoughts like that to trigger your voting intent because you did not and will not consider the consequences and are on some self-justified railroute to our exit and demise. It might be okay, but you can't be sure and as we slide toward the abyss, you're looking round for people to blame - you've finished with foreigners, and now it's our own politicians, because you still don't understand and still don't want to understand, and people like me, who are simply asking you why you voted and want a straight answer. It's what makes you a xenophobe, because you have "perceptions of an ingroup towards an outgroup and can manifest itself in suspicion of the activities of others, and a desire to eliminate their presence to secure a presumed purity and may relate to a fear of losing national, ethnic or racial identity"Anyone non UK breaking our laws and that includes persistant small crimes should be removed from the country and not allowed to return.
So, thanks for providing the definition. Here's your hat. Wear it.
