Thanks Searchlight

This is one of the most important polls ever for British Nationalism as it confirms that British Cultural Nationalism is supported by an overwhelming majority of the public and that cultural nationalism and the British Freedom Party are the future of British Nationalist politics.

Thanks to Searchlight for commissioning this poll to enable us to plot our strategy and tactics to take power.

Nice to see the far left assisting nationalists into power by producing a poll that allows us to plot our progress forwards.

Executive summary

Searchlight Educational Trust commissioned the polling organisation Populus to explore the issues of English identity, faith and race. The Fear and HOPE survey gives a snapshot of current attitudes in society today. It explores the level of fear, hate and hope. It details what pulls us apart and what brings us together. With 5,054 respondents and 91 questions it is one of the largest and most comprehensive surveys into attitude, identity and extremism in the UK to date.

On one level it is not happy reading. It concludes that there is not a progressive majority in society and it reveals that there is a deep resentment to immigration, as well as scepticism towards multiculturalism. There is a widespread fear of the ‘Other’, particularly Muslims, and there is an appetite for a new right-wing political party that has none of the fascist trappings of the British National Party or the violence of the English Defence League. With a clear correlation between economic pessimism and negative views to immigration, the situation is likely to get worse over the next few years.

Of course attitudes and identity are fluid, and multilayered. Attitudes held today may not be held tomorrow. There are also many positive findings from the report. Young people are more hopeful about the future and more open to living in an ethnically diverse society. The vast majority of people reject political violence and view white anti-Muslim extremists as bad as Muslim extremists and there is overwhelming support for a positive campaign against extremism.

The report captures society as it is now but it also points to possible remedies. This is a starting point for a new Searchlight Educational Trust project – Together.

The key findings of the Fear and HOPE report reveal:

■A new politics of identity, culture, and nation has grown out of the politics of race and immigration, and is increasingly the opinion driver in modern British politics.

■Six identity ‘tribes’ in modern British society. These are: Confident Multiculturalists (eight per cent of the population); Mainstream Liberals (16%); Identity Ambivalents (28%); Cultural Integrationists (24%); Latent Hostiles (10%); and Active Enmity (13%).

■There is a clear correlation between economic pessimism and negative attitudes towards immigration. The more pessimistic people are about their own economic situation and their prospects for the future the more hostile their attitudes are to new and old immigrants.

■There is a new middle ground of British politics that is defined by two groups of voters: Cultural Integrationists who are motived by authority and order; and Identity Ambivalents who are concerned about their economic security and social change. Together they make up 52% of the population.

■'Those identified as Identity Ambivalents could be pushed further towards the Right, unless mainstream political parties tackle the social and economic insecurity which dominates their attitudes. This is a challenge for the current Government – which is implementing deep spending cuts – and for the Labour Party, which is the traditional home of many of these voters. Almost half of all voters who do not
identify with a party are Identity Ambivalents.

■While more likely to consider ethnicity and religion to be important to their identity than nationality, Black and Asian minority groups share many other groups’ opinions on a range of issues, including the national and personal impact of immigration.

■The British National Party (BNP) is in decline, entwined as it is with the old politics of race and immigration. Instead, groups such as the English Defence League (EDL), better adapted to the new politics of identity, are replacing them. However, there is a limit to the potential growth of this assertive and threatening form of nationalism.

■There is popular support for a sanitised, non-violent and non-racist English nationalist political party. Britain has not experienced the successful far right parties that have swept across much of Western Europe. Our report shows this is not because British people are more moderate but simply because these views have not found a political articulation.

On a more positive side:

■Political violence is strongly opposed by the vast majority of society and this is a ‘firewall’ between those concerned with immigration/multiculturalism and more open and hardline racists.

■Over two-thirds of people view ‘English nationalist extremists’ and ‘Muslim extremists’ as bad as each other.

■60% of respondents thought that positive approaches – community organising, education, and using celebrities and key communal movers and shakers – were the best way to defeat extremism in communities.

■There is a real appetite for a positive campaigning organisation that opposes political extremism through bringing communities together. Over two-thirds of the population would either ‘definitely’ or ‘probably’ support such a group.

This report paints a disturbing picture of our attitudes towards each other and the unknown. It also graphically highlights the dangers that lie ahead if the issues highlighted in the research are not addressed. Fear and Hope throws down a challenge to the political parties to really understand what is happening in the body politic and then do something about it. Fear and Hope shakes the confidence of those who believe that all is well in Britain’s multiracial society. Fear and Hope should make all those working for a more peaceful, cohesive society think again about their strategy’s and the effectiveness of their work.

The future is unwritten and it is all to play for. The Fear and Hope survey clearly shows that the new centreground voter is receptive to messages of openness, acceptance and pluralism – but they also need social and economic reassurance. If we can understand the new politics of identity then we can win them over. If we fail to do so then we risk their fear turning to hate. That is the challenge we all face. That is why we are launching the Together campaign.

Searchlight- just another Zionist organisation.
This has infuriated me to find out just who it is behind our troubles.

American Jewess Bitch: Europeans must accept Jewish domination and national annihilation or die
The American Zionist Jewess bitch Barbara Lerner Spectre, of the Swedish taxpayer-funded, fake-Greek-named Jew outfit “Paideia“:

“Europe has not yet learned how to be multicultural. And I think we [Jews] are going to be part of the throes of that transformation, which must take place. Europe is not going to be the monolithic societies [sic] that they once were in the last century. Jews are going to be at the centre of that. It’s a huge transformation for Europe to make. They are now going into a multicultural mode, and Jews will be resented because of our leading role. But without that leading role, and without that transformation, Europe will not survive.”

Background of her organisation in Sweden.

Clever - how we've been virtually made into criminals should we discuss Jews.
Yet I'm finding out just how implicated they are in various damned issues. inc the banning of Christian symbols across the West.

However convincing or pressing the Leftist brainwashed products at Searchlight may sound, you must realise the most important fact's.

To be able to tame the beast, you must be able to completely understand it, be part of it and they have only just scatched the surface of what makes us tick.

They do not truely understand us, they never will.

Many have tried to keep the Lion as a pet, chain it, drug it and oppress the natural ore and beauty of nature; all have invarably failed , most with serious injury..

The perverted sick unatural expressions and idology of the hard left is much easier to understand and defeat, because it is a written calculated response; not hard wired.

It has a limited life span.

The same way you would have to add hard preservatives to keep the shelf life of processed food is the same way they need to prop up their repugnent beliefs.

As soon as oxygen gets inside the well prepared packaging, it will go off real quick.

The preservatives they have thrust on us by way of legislation for their sick dream is coming to the end of the road.

I dont want to bore you with what they are doing and why, most of you know it. What we must "ALL" realise is that we must embrace what is natural to destroy them even sooner.

Those of us that will always be successful will plan long term and be patient; I would prefer that was with complete resolve and unity.
