Englishman Opens British-Themed Souvenir Shop. Gets Accused of...Racism?!
Leftists are always looking for something new to be mad about. But lately they've been running short of legitimate gripes. Progress and all. To make up for there not being any real bigots to fight, progressive types have started labelling anyone who offends them as a bigot. Like this poor bloke in London for example...
A London shop owner claims he has been accused of racism for selling items dedicated to celebrating Britain.
Chris Ostwald opened his store – called Really British – last month in the north London suburb of Muswell Hill.
He sells a variety of goods including souvenirs painted with the Union Jack, London Underground tea towels, gifts associated with the Royal Family and memorabilia dedicated to 1960s pop group The Kinks, who come from the area.
But since opening he says he has received scores of complaints and been forced to remove a Union Jack flag from the window.
Some residents are also apparently threatening to stage protests.
So, a British guy selling British stuff in Britain is racist? I smell B.S.
Someone should dial up Webster. Because leftists have completely changed the meaning of the word "racist." A racist used to be someone who disliked anyone of a different race. Simple enough. But now a "racist" also includes someone with national pride. Not sure what the British equivalent would be, but here we'd call that "moving the goal posts." Also being general loo-dwelling gits. I tried a little British slang there. Do let me know how you like it (or hate it).
Let me be crystal clear: progressives want to destroy the shop owner because of his patriotism. Celebrating Britain? Plastering the Union Jack on everything? Not okay. Such patriotism excludes two types of people: those sore losing prats who voted to remain in the EU, and those migrants who aren't from the land of Shakespeare, but the land that shakes spears. Well, maybe not spears exactly, but knives, axes, suicide vests, IEDs and slapping ladies they've raped. Islam. British pride isn't kosher with Muslim migrants. As we all know, if you're against Islam in anyway, even if that way isn't against Islam at all but celebrating your national pride, you're a racist. You must be publicly shamed.
Dots connected. You're welcome.
Here's a brilliant idea: if you don't like someone's store, don't go into it. Why must leftists try to ruin the man's life? Yes, that's a rhetorical question. I already know the answer.
