UKIP compares immigration with oppression of Native Americans

UKIP have issued a leaflet comparing immigration in the UK to the plight of Native Americans in the 19th century. Many were subjected to acts of genocide.

The UK Independence Party have issued a leaflet in Lancaster which compares immigration in the UK to the plight of Native Americans, an indigenous people removed from their land in the early nineteenth century – and in many cases subjected to acts of genocide.

The leaflet, uploaded on The Straight Choice – the election leaflet project, depicts a Native American in full head dress with the caption: “He used to ignore immigration … now he lives on a reservation”.

David Cesarani, an English historian who specialises in Jewish history, states in Holocaust: Critical Concepts in Historical Studies: “in terms of the sheer numbers killed, the Native American Genocide exceeds that of the Holocaust”.

Tonight, the Freesteel blog writes that:

“Some quick checking on-line searching traces this particular idea to the right wing Northern League in Italy in their 2008 elections. (link) Even though they don’t have a StraightChoice.org, their posters are available on their website. The funny thing is I always thought that italians were better dressed than that baggy green sweater guy.”

    When are you stupid white liberals going to get it? The streets aren’t safe for white people, we are constatly attacked and the people who claim to be against racism ignore it because white victims don’t meet their criteria.

    Look at crime statistics in the US, black on white violent crimes are rampant yet they would have us believe it’s racist white people who are the problem. Blacks are the people who are committing all these assault and murders, the number of attacks on blacks is small despite whites being the majority. The left are colour blind when it comes to racism, they’ll forever see us as the oppressors until every white child is dead.

    immigrant vaccination…lack of it killed american indians and will kill us too.

    Do fuck off you idiot.

    Who was it again who carried out the native American genocide?

    ” The streets aren’t safe for white people, we are constatly attacked ”

    Untrue and untrue. Walk like a victim, be treated like a victim. In the UK there is no such thing as a no go area, I have always gone exactly where I wanted to go, I always will.

    So lets get this straight. You are saying that the eradication of white people in their native homelands is fair game because some other white people did it to the Native Americans a few hundred years ago?

    I’d say that this was a case of ‘Sins of our Fathers’, except of course, those still living in Europe today are the descendants of those who actually didn’t commit genocide against another race.
    So if its a case of guilty by association, why do the left back Palestinians when the Muslims led a war of unimaginable cruelty against the Jews and Christians living in the holy lands at the time of the first crusades?
    Your logic has such wide gaps in that you could quite comfortably drive double decker buses through them.
