VE Day – victory for whom?

Tomorrow – Friday 8th May – the United Kingdom ‘celebrates’ a bank holiday to mark the 75th anniversary of ‘Victory in Europe’, the surrender of German forces on the Western Front. (On the Eastern Front German commanders waited an extra day before surrendering – this was deliberate, so as to allow as many troops as possible to surrender to Anglo-Americans rather than ‘our’ murderous communist allies.)

In 2020 the usual suspects are rushing to claim political capital from this anniversary, even though celebrations will inevitably be muted – no pubs, no street parties, enforced ‘social distancing’.

A typical example is Cllr Sean Fielding, Labour leader of Oldham Borough Council, who proudly told the press:
“VE Day was a victory over the far-right in Europe that was only achieved with huge sacrifice.

“Even in these unusual circumstances it is therefore important to mark the 75th anniversary to both remember this sacrifice and reflect on what it was that our ancestors were fighting against.

“The values of freedom, democracy, tolerance and respect that triumphed 75 years ago are not a given, and so celebrating VE Day is an opportunity to remind ourselves of the importance of these values, reaffirm our commitment to upholding them and have the confidence to call out those who do not.”

Did Oldham’s wartime generation fight and die for this? Four ‘local’ teenagers (above) convicted of a horrific kidnap and torture. One of the gang, Ahsan Khan (bottom right) was stabbed to death in February this year.

In Cllr Fielding’s looking-glass world, the 450,000 UK and colonial dead (military and civilian) during the Second World War gave their lives so as to create his politically-correct multiracial dream. In fact, Britons believed they were fighting that war against Germany (and its Axis partners), not against the ‘far right’. In British political terms at that time, Churchill himself was on the ‘far right’ of the Conservative Party!

Would Oldhamers who died in that war even recognise their home town today? And if they could, might they not think that the 1945 ‘victory’ had produced a nightmare world?

Fortunately even in the ‘mainstream’ there are a few voices of sanity.

For example the London solicitor Alastair Meeks, writing at politicalbetting.com, criticises what he rightly describes as “mawkish nursery games” that dominate our national discourse concerning the war years, and suggests “it’s time to leave the Second World War in the history books”.

Who knows what the eventual impact of Covid-19 will be? One possibility is that we finally abandon toxic ‘multiculturalism’ and accept the need not only for short-term ‘social distancing’ but (as the National Alliance Bulletin recently recommended) long-term “racial distancing”.

If so, that might at long last produce a Britain worth fighting for.

National Alliance recommends “racial distancing”.
