Simone Clarke, one of the principal dancers with the English National Ballet has been revealed to be a member of the British National Party.
"Clarke said she believed that immigration had "really got out of hand". She added: "If everyone who thinks like I do joined, it would really make a difference." "
The BNP, for those fortunate enough not to have heard about them already, are a far right party, similar to Le Pen's Front Nationale in France, i.e a bunch of racists fixated on returning their countries to some ideal of racial purity which never actually existed.
The strangest aspect of Clarke's membership, is that her fellow dancer, partner of five year and the father of her child is Chinese-Cuban.
So either she's stupid or extremely deluded or both.
As a member, presumably she must regularly receive some sort of party literature and I wonder what her partner thinks of statements of the U.K being somewhere for whites only and that white people (specifically, Northern European white people, they follow the thinking of their hero Adolf on this),are superior. Or that those who date marry/outside of their race are "traitors".
I feel both disgusted and perplexed by this because, like many converts, I'm in a mixed race marriage. My husband is Arab and a foreign national. Although to the likes of the BNP, I'm already a disgrace for converting to Islam (current legislation means it is not illegal to insult Islam and Muslims in the U.K, something the BNP have readily exploited).
One of the things the BNP finds objectionable about Islam is the idea that Muslims (of the non-white variety) will come into the country and take "their women", as when a mixed race child is born: "a white family line that stretches back into deep pre-history is destroyed."
Do these people not have access to history books? Due to an extensive history of invading each other, there is no pure white race in Europe. It doesn't exist.
In summary, the BNP wish to attack the lives, futures and dreams that I and other people in mixed race relations hold dear. That's why I cannot understand someone in a mixed race relationship supporting them.
