This blog initially set out to focus primarily on Islam and the Islamisation of the UK. However, since that time the subjects covered have broadened. They now include (amongst other things): IQ tests, Jean Baudrillard, global warming, sociobiology, Marxism, Trotskyism, David Cameron, Foucault, Nazism, Ralph Miliband, economics, statistics and so on. - Paul Austin Murphy
I've had articles published in The Conservative Online, American Thinker, Intellectual Conservative, Human Events, Faith Freedom, Brenner Brief (Broadside News), New English Review, etc... (Paul Austin Murphy's Philosophy can be found here.)

The Runnymede Trust: Anti-White Racism is Impossible!

 






Fiyaz Mughal's Tell Mama organisation relies very heavily on one source for his legalistic pontifications about “Islamophobia” and what he classes as “racism”. That source is The Runnymede Trust and its 1997 report, 'Islamophobia, a challenge for us all'. (This is a very early use of the word 'Islamophobia' and it's clear that The Runnymede Trust noted its strategic and political value.)

Tell Mama tells us that it “focus[es] on and use[s] the term 'anti-Muslim prejudice'” primarily because of “the work of the Runnymede Trust on Islamophobia”(which it also deems to be “ground-breaking”).

TheCommission on British Muslims and Islamophobia was set up in 1996 by the Runnymede Trust; though this actual report is from 2004.

In terms of the Runnymede Trust and its fight against Islamophobia; it's worth noting that it is self-described as a “left-wing think tank”.

So why “left-wing”?

Take this reason for the Runnymede Trust's Leftism: it doesn't believe that there is such a thing as racism towards whites – full stop!

For example, in 2009 it published a collection of essays which argued that whites “are not discriminated against because they are white”. Well, for a start, there is at least one organisation which discriminates against whites: the Runnymede Trust itself! There are of course many others: such as Unite Against Fascism (UAF), The Guardian, Hope Not Hate, various councils, the BBC, various universities and virtually all Leftist/progressive individuals and groups.

So why this Leftist anti-white racism? Basically it's all down to (Marxist) theory. It has become an article of faith (which most Leftists neither question nor even think about) that whites can only be racists, never the victims of racism.
