I suppose that, were Vaughan Williams alive today, he would be “cancelled” as “ethnocentric” and “racist”. Britain has gone mad, and is ravaged —culturally and sometimes literally— by non-white mobs stirred up by the (((you-know-who))).
On this day a year ago
“Post traumatic slavery syndrome”
A tweet from February, not seen by me previously:
The funniest thing about the forced “apology” of “Dr” Comrie (the doctorate is an honorary one, awarded a few years ago) is that she excuses herself by citing “shared experience of acute racial trauma and post-traumatic slave syndrome following the murder of George Floyd“.
Ha ha! Slavery in the British Empire ended in 1833, nearly 200 years ago (and the slave trade itself had already been abolished even then, and throughout the Empire, in 1807).
“Dr.” Comrie, of whose existence I was entirely unaware until today, is apparently a quangocrat and/or “social entrepreneur”, who worked for the BBC at one time: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marilyn_Comrie.
The “apology”, drafted —I presume— by “Dr” Comrie’s solicitors, is reproduced here below:
There it is. “Dr” Comrie (like those black women Labour MPs who are and/or have been in hot water) thinks that she can cite British or Empire slavery in the 18th century or before, or the death of an American black criminal while resisting arrest in the USA, to excuse her spouting a load of complete garbage, untruthful, stupid, and libellous, on a British radio show.
Incidentally, in case anyone is wondering, while spoken defamation is usually slander (and not libel), it is libel (in the UK) when broadcast on public radio or TV in that manner.
Why do we tolerate these idiots?
