“Men who live by laws and rules are parasites. Others shed their strength to bring these laws out of nothing into the light of day, but the law-abiders live at their ease—they have conquered nothing for themselves.” from “A Voyage to Arcturus” by David Lindsay
The following anecdote is a harrowing account of an Asian British brother, trying damn hard to submit to the propaganda that the Anglo West is a beacon of egalitarian bliss…. then he was bitten into an awakening. Who the fuck are we kidding? Irrespective of a perfected accent, loving baked beans on toast and keeping a stiff upper lip in all circumstances, WE WILL NEVER be a “real” Brit, Aussie or Yank. Why? Because we are the WRONG SHADE of stiff upper lip!
I have read Tej’s work and wondered why he was so lucid and willing to document the actual, on the ground treatment of Asians vs the phantasmal one many deluded betas subscribe to and vouch for EVEN THOUGH their phenomenological experiences do NOT adhere to the official slogan. So I asked him what and how many experiences did he have, to end up being as brutally honest and raw in telling his story, and this is what he said…..
“Not one, but numerous. It took a while for me to process and make sense of it all… Then it clicked. Like a hypothesis that, whenever applied against an observation, seems to reliably explain the observed phenomenon.
I’ll list major ones in the hopes that it might be be useful or at least entertaining to your audience:
* Randomly attacked by 4 guys shouting racial slurs in a city centre while walking to get to the train station — though I got a couple of decent blows in myself (had been kickboxing since 7), I ended up with swollen face, blood vessels burst in my eyes, a HUGE swollen black left eye, and blood running down my right arm soaking my shirt sleeve because one of the guys bit my hand and tried to chew on it (had to hold it up in guard position the whole time). Ran to the nearest pub whose bouncers would let me in, the police constables arrived, exchanged words with the 4 guys who’d chased me (stopped outside by the bouncers, after they were smashing on the windows, shouting etc.) – constables TOLD THEM TO LEAVE, called me out and basically told me that I had no business in pursuing this further. I reached out to the city inspector with both constables’ collar number, he regurgitated the same words, saying that it was nothing more than a “drunk brawl”. At the time, I was a first year university student, no knowledge of lawyers that could have helped me pursue the case, not much cash, nobody to help, and I certainly didn’t want to worry my parents (who lived 4 hours away).
* About a year or two later, I overheard two cops in the middle of the SAME city centre talking about getting rid of their “paki” colleague. “Paki” is a racial slur used for all South Asians regardless of country – particularly Indians and Pakistanis (both of whom fought for the British during WWI and WWII, both were also major sources of revenue/produce during the wars, and labour from both countries helped rebuild Britain after the destruction of WWII). Thought to myself: “devious ungrateful bastards, now I KNOW this isn’t my country”.
* Training with a British army regiment, sitting through regimental history classes – the officer glorifying inhumane conquests as if it was the greatest thing that ever happened to “those people”. For me, as somebody of Punjabi/Sikh background, it happened to be the Battle of Sabraon – a battle that I actually knew a thing or two about. Also – the British army has a culture of propagating condescending racist material like Harry Flashman comics, etc. Officers de-humanizing muslims and villainizing Islam in almost all conversations. Recommended reading like ‘Junior Officer’s Reading Club’, regurgitate the same sort of intentional biases – albeit in a more readable/subtle way. About the same time, I also happened to be involved with ‘the Conservative society’ and saw the basis on which policy advisors and junior party leaders were groomed (racist dogwhistles with ‘plausible’ explanations actively encouraged).
* Random people at pubs finding every opportunity to single me out and try to pick a fight. I assume my presence must’ve been intimidating/threatening… All three times I happened to be the only non-White guy around, with a white girl, in a predominantly white area.
* Working in America, talking to “liberals” and realising their the same condescending bastards as everybody else, – just that their approach to ‘supremacy’ is more sophisticated, and their mannerisms more subtle when exerting aggression. I now basically see all liberals as passive aggressive white supremacists – passive aggression a necessity, considering their social and economic incentives.
* (Eventually) noticing that some of my “friends”, co-workers, and bosses at two of the companies I worked for would often try and pit or position me against other people of “foreign” decent (they were often East Asian for some reason – Chinese, and Vietnamese, respectively). It took me a while to notice that I was being an absolute twat and falling for the trap. Before I had met my Chinese colleagues on a personal level, I had a very condescending “western” attitude towards them that my white bosses actively encouraged.
* Working in China and realising how friendly and welcoming the people are, and HOW SAFE I FELT, I could walk anywhere/everywhere with my guard down… people interacted with me as if I’m their brother, tried to understand me and my perspective, introduced me to their families, it was beautiful… They were also shocked that, as a “westerner”, I was not critical of them or their government. I HATED the fact that they were embarrassed of their government instead of proud when interacting with me. I told them that their government was doing a great job compared to the west and they were SHOCKED!
* Noticing that every time the matter of systematic and institutionalised racism comes up, British MSM do their utmost best to give the most airtime to the individual whose narrative is built around DENYING any such occurrence as a complete and utter falsity, how “things are much better than they used to be”, the “world is a much better place”, etc.
I could go on…
SO…, when I see a Chinese or East Asian person go through the same thing TODAY. I get it… I TOTALLY get it.
So basically the first incident made me super-vigilant of peoples’ intentions. Over time, I learned to pick up cues, etc. For some reason I wanted to find “leverage” over people that I thought were “low class racists”, and realised during the process that it had NOTHING to do with “class” – there is a top-down solidarity and an unspoken-of understanding of mutual-benefit in preserving and propagating such racial and cultural biases, with the English man/English woman always positioned at the top – the “self-righteous (pansy) kings and queens of the world”. The political class and a significant percentage of the English upper class and bourgeois, no matter their political leaning, benefit as much from this as the “chavs” on the streets, and the middle classes looking for group to blame and victimise to vent their frustrations. It certainly explains the Meghan Markle debacle, systematic vilification of non-White British politicians – especially if they are critical of imperialist policies, etc.
Of course, every English liberal/bourgeois and moderate conservative to ever read such a post will exert additional effort to deny the existence of such a phenomenon.“
