The UK Independence Party had a chance to choose Anne Marie Waters as its new leader. Waters speaks forthrightly about the threat of jihad and Sharia, and would have made UKIP into a genuine opposition party, the only genuine opposition against the Conservative/Labour conglomerate that has embraced globalism, open borders, the destruction of the nation state, and massive Muslim immigration in order to transform Britain into a true internationalist beacon, as squalid, dirty, and dangerous as every other place.
Nigel Farage, UKIP’s former leader, campaigned hard against Waters, vowing to form yet another new party if she became UKIP’s leader, and saying after she was defeated: “I very much hope she leaves today.”
Farage’s disgraceful cowardice doesn’t surprise me. Last year I approached him at an event where we were both speaking, introduced myself, explained that I had been banned from Britain for noting correctly that Islam has doctrines of warfare against unbelievers, and asked his help to overturn the ban. The 300-watt smile he was beaming in all directions suddenly vanished, along with his confident mien and the color in his face. He began to stammer and sputter. “That’s very difficult,” he muttered. “That’s very difficult.” And that was that. Farage had no reason to stick his neck out for me, of course, but his obvious discomfort over even the prospect of speaking out against my ban suggested a larger discomfort with confronting the real life-and-death problem facing the UK today: Sharia and Islamization, and the present government’s disastrous policy of appeasement and accommodation of Islamic supremacists.
Now Farage’s unwillingness to deal with this problem is manifest to the world. His colorless and uninspiring candidate, the bank-clerkish Henry Bolton, declares here: “I absolutely abhor the rhetoric that says we are at war with Islam.” Indeed so. We are not at war with Islam. But a significant number of adherents of Islam are at war with us, and while Bolton says “we don’t need to be confronting anyone,” Islamic jihadists are readying still more confrontations of the British people and government. Bolton wants to work against this “in partnership with the Muslim community of Britain.” In other words, he is offering the same platitudes and failed remedies that Theresa May and David Cameron and Gordon Brown and Tony Blair have given Britain for years now.
And so UKIP will fade into even greater insignificance than it enjoys now, and British people who are genuinely alarmed at what is happening to their country will continue to have no significant voice or representation on the British political scene.
“UKIP’s New Leader Henry Bolton Says ‘I Absolutely Abhor the Rhetoric That Says we are at War with Islam,’” SevenStar News, September 30, 2017:
The UK Independence Party’s newly elected leader, Henry Bolton, shows right away that he has a different perspective from party leader hopeful Anne Marie Waters who came in second. While Waters is the director of Sharia Watch, Bolton says he wants to “move away from the focus on Islam.”
Quote From Henry Bolton at his first press conference after becoming UKIP leader:
I’ve been very public about Britain, preserving the British way of life, and that includes our communities – all of our communities. This is not about Islam. I think, as I’ve just said, that Islam is of concern, and that the nature of Islam and the practices of the religion are such that they tend to have a more dominating effect in a community where there’s a large Muslim population than the Christian community, because, you will know [in] Christianity people are not particularly active, most people, in practicing their Christian faith.
What I’m saying is there is an issue to be discussed, and we need to do that in partnership with the Muslim community of Britain. We don’t need to be confronting anyone. I absolutely abhor the rhetoric that says we are at war with Islam, or anything that indicates as such. And frankly, I think from now on, my concern will be the people raising the question rather than the people giving the answer.
My platform is a broad one for delivering for the British people across the place. It is not focused on Islam, and I would quite like all of you please, I may ask, to move away from the focus on Islam. We’ve had an election, we’ve got a leader whose position is quite clear on these things, and I think we ought to focus for delivering for Britain at large, not discussing the Islamic question.
