I am becoming more sure as every twist of the #Brexit knife happens, that the same mindset that was behind Hitler's policies in Nazi Germany are being subtly or will be openly enacted here upon a #nodealbrexit
Let me unpick this .....
Right from the start of the campaign ~ generated to keep Cameron in power and stave off the 'bastards' sic.Major on the right/UKIP, pure racism was allowed and encouraged in the press. A subtle game was played whereby legit EU citizens were turned into 'illegal migrants. #brexit
Outright lies of Leave.EU and Voteleave were never publically opposed by any MPs ~ and indeed, the *crimes* committed by both organisations are not being investigated by the police,nor Govt declared the ref null & void on what has been uncovered by @carolecadwalla
So, a conspiracy of silence. We move on: it is palpably evident that the UK (ALL of us) will suffer immense damage to our lives from #Brexit. In m(mine?) it will be fatal. The Govt is completely abnegating its responsibility as 'public servants' to look after all of us #brexit
More: whenever some rapprochement is reached with the #EU .... some MP always insults them...'nazi camp guards'/'Like the USSR'.
Is this how reach YES? or how you make sure you reach 'NO'?
It seems counterintuitive, doesn't it?
But read on ..... #brexit
I go back to 1930 Germany. I see:
A country saddled by a huge war reparation debt
A country destroyed in its national 'pride'
A country with no clear direction of travel.
I come back to now: I see a similar situation: Banking crisis/Austeritybreakdown of social structures
How did Hitler's Gvt deal with the ruination of Germany?
1. Referendum to remove it from the control of League of Nations
2. Bombastic and jingoistic language in rallies/marches/press
3. Building social cohesion by attribution of *blame* to others, ie NOT the German people.
Slowly, Jews (Gays, Roma, & disabled) became to be seen as 'untermenschen' ..not actual members of 'civilized' society. If you are disabled, you will already be experiencing this! If you child has special needs, ditto. I have been looking at the 'language' of certain MPs...
These are the influential people driving #Brexit at the moment. Behind them are various organisations (Legatum, Inst of EA) who have a ruthless and hierarchical agenda based on their *right* to prosper nem.con. Many MPs (Davis, Fox,) are heavily influenced by their thinking, IMO.
So, pulling this together:
IF our MPs on BOTH sides wanted a deal ~ there is one.
IF our MPS on both sides cared about EU citizens, they would make the deal.
I conclude they do not. I conclude further, that the ambition of the alt right is to make UK 'EU frei' whatever the cost.
I conclude this because 'Make Britain Great Again' is the only rallying cry that is being made. 'Sovereignty' & 'No vassel state' is the watchword.
Exactly like Germany.When the *deal* does/does not happen, watch as EU citizens' rights are eroded,as they are blamed, attacked etc.
1930s German Govt found a convenient excuse for its terrible policies. The UK Govt is doing the same, using the same nationalistic language, outsourcing blame to the EU. I see the same disregard for human rights by those claiming they are only 'obeying the will of the people;'
I will march on #PeoplesVoteMarch with my EU mates ~ none of whom were allowed to vote in the Referendum, tho' domiciled & paying taxes here. May are suffering, as the #Windrush people did. It goes unreported. I fear we will not be allowed to vote in any future #FinalSay either
I conclude: these are my own opinions, my reading of the signs. I do not have any 'plan', any wise words, other than what I assume will happen, based upon what has already taken place.
Of course, there is always the: 'we never knew that would happen' thing
Let's hope it does. 💔
