Mob rule must not win! For weeks, the UK was engulfed by rioting and disorder. Memorials to our war dead were vandalised and police officers assaulted. Unchallenged by the media, the founders of Black Lives Matter flaunted their hard left ideology – boasting that they were “trained Marxists”.
We all know it was not about racial equality but an attempt by the Far Left to dominate mainstream politics. They are professional grudge-merchants, claiming racism exists even where it doesn’t. Without this, their neo-Marxist ideology has no future. They hate a lot and love much less - least of all Wales.
The former Leader of Plaid Cymru, Leanne Wood, and her cabal in Cardiff Bay are a prime example. They do love to hate - they are the mob in suits. Plaid brandish all opposition to their bigoted view as “racist”, “fascist” or “Far Right”.
After a pitifully attended protest in Llanelli a month ago, last week Welsh Nationalist thugs vandalised my office. Their message was simple, stay silent or we’ll brand you a racist - even if you have been elected by the people of Wales.
As a member of the Senedd, accustomed to leftist agitators, I am not intimidated. But for others, it is not so simple. When these extremists get home, they open up their laptops to police the internet, looking for unsuspecting people who dared to share opinions out of line with their own. We see it all the time. Ordinary, decent people are abused on Twitter and Facebook for “wrong think”.
Too often, the internet trolling mob don’t just stick to verbal abuse - calling someone “racist”, “fascist”, “homophobe” or “transphobe” for expressing mainstream views. They try to get people fired from their jobs. This is not balanced and reasoned discussion but a violent shouting match which aims to destroy free speech.
The Far Left’s primitive doctrine, embraced by Plaid Cymru and the Labour Party, is suffocating democracy in Wales. The Woke Senedd held a minute’s silence “in solidarity with Black Lives Matter,” whose leaders boast of being “trained Marxists” who want to “defund the police”. The Senedd’s Conservatives supinely went along with this, despite being the so-called ‘Opposition’.
The Left’s relentless identity-politics is not confined to protests in Llanelli or social media. In a recent education debate, Plaid Cymru proposed that “black and people of colour history” should be made compulsory in Welsh schools but English language should not. What idiocy - removing a global language from the curriculum. But Plaid goes further. They see schools as an “opportunity to right many structural injustices”. This is not education but indoctrination – forcing their political prejudices into impressionable young minds.
Nationalist politicians, like their activists who spend the weekends shouting at statues, despise Britain’s history and identity. They are determined to rewrite our past in order to manipulate the future. They trample our values, which have made the UK one of the most free and tolerant countries in the world.
It is time to stand up and be counted. Only UKIP has the guts to stand up for the values which made Britain such a massive influence for good in world history.
Next year’s Senedd Election is the opportunity for the tolerant, law abiding majority to fight back. We must reject the haters. We must safeguard rational discussion.
The mob should have no place in our political system, yet the virtue signalling Senedd bends the knee to it. Join me in my call for a referendum to scrap it and put the Cardiff Bay Cabal out of a job.
