The Mail on Sunday has published a series of messages sent by Jo Marney. In them, the 25-year-old model said Ms Markle would "taint" the Royal Family, that she had a "tiny brain" and that black people were ugly. Ms Marney apologised and said her messages had been taken out of context. Mr Bolton did not want to comment.[/quote] UKIP's death march continues
Fucking brilliant. Also, I love how she says that OTHER people are obsessed with race, when she's the one moaning about the new princess being black, or whatever. To be honest, I think the woman is stunningly beautiful, but each to their own. Hah, I just realised that saying 'each to their own' in a thread about how black people shouldn't marry into the Royal Family was a little tone deaf of me, but obviously that's not what I meant.
Holy cow what, taken out of context? I can't imagine any context where any of this would sound decent. What a lame excuse.
I mean, the Queen is German and her husband is Greek, "Royal blood" is pretty dang muddy allready if you look at it that way. But of course people like her would freely ignore the exceptions to their little "Every race is a bunch of vile seed spilling invaders bent on making us extict" agenda when it benefits them.

[QUOTE]Ms Marney apologised and said her messages had been taken out of context[/QUOTE] Everytime, lmao
I fucking love the 'taken out of context' defense because they never explain what context would actually make this racist drivel acceptable. :v:
UKIP desperately trying to plug the gaps and stop the inherent racism which is rampant in their party spilling out into the open. Just another day for UKIP!
"When you are in trouble for expressing your racism, just say it was taken out of context. It's a gateway card." There was no way out of this situation. You could only confirm that you are indeed racist.
What does this even mean? "No, I'm not racist, I just don't want those icky blacks in my country"? [img]https://i.imgur.com/uM0ZD5q.png[/img]

Bolton is probably going to be removed by the party's NEC, meaning UKIP will have gone through five leaders in 18 months. It's getting to be a question of when, not if, the party collapses and dissolves

[img]https://i.imgur.com/uM0ZD5q.png[/img][/QUOTE] there is literally no way anyone is invading any culture. unless there is a carnival happening outside of your door, you're only saying you are bothered by seeing people who are not white. but it was cultural for britain to actually invade other countries. :v:
The sad part is that I know many people who would agree with those texts
[QUOTE=Sir Whoopsalot;53051653]What does this even mean? "No, I'm not racist, I just don't want those icky blacks in my country"?[/QUOTE] It's a fairly common tactic to reframe obviously racist statements into focusing specifically on culture, religion, countries etc. and proclaiming that since they're not explicitly stating they want to lynch black people for the colour of their skin that it couldn't possibly be racist. AKA they're trying to get by on a technicality to wriggle out of being labelled a racist, despite their views being treated the same whether they accept they're racist or not. The game appears to be making racist views labelled as racism-free to make them more palatable, no matter how nonsensical you get, i.e. the quoted image. it's all a load of fun ain't it
but they're racist so it really doesn't matter about technicalities. [editline]14th January 2018[/editline] anyone who cares about "tainting" the royal bloodline is 100% weird.
Lmao at [URL=https://twitter.com/rulajebreal/status/952470617797922816]US media[/URL] calling Henry Bolton a "British political leader", I guarantee you the majority of Brits couldn't name him until this scandal broke
Man she's angry holy shit.
[IMG]http://a.abcnews.com/images/Entertainment/meghan-markle-04-gty-171204_4x3_992.jpg[/IMG] what confuses me most about this whole thing is that Markle doesn't even look black, if it wasn't public knowledge that one of her parents was black most people would have assumed that she was from one of the Mediterranean countries

Racists aren't exactly rational, or remotely smart. Don't think too much about it.

I hope European and American nations have more 'foreign' or 'minority' leaders in the future. Not just because it's super cool that we can all see each other as humans, but because it will make this sort of person blue with rage every time their name is mentioned.

Its always the same story with UKIP, a couple of their leaders are smart enough to know that letting their racism show openly is political suicide. Which makes life difficult when you're in charge of a party full of frothing racists.
"She's obsessed with race" That's so fucking rich, it's going to a 6-month winter vacation on a private island.
They split up :rolleyes: [URL="http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-42686932"]BBC[/URL] [QUOTE]UKIP leader Henry Bolton says he has ended his relationship with his girlfriend after she reportedly made racist comments about Meghan Markle.

[QUOTE=SebiWarrior;53051199]It's the black genes she doesn't want, whites are fine apparently[/QUOTE] Someone might want to give her a book on evolution, though apparently they'll have to read it to her aloud. Perhaps a picture book.

It amazes me how racists even survive in modern society. If you get this upset over a marriage you don't have to witness and will have no direct effects on your life, how do you cope with everything else? Do you grimace when you're served by somebody you consider "other" at the supermarket? Is it your nightmare to have to cooperate with a non-white police officer? How do you entertain yourself? Can't play GTA with a black protagonist, or Assassin's Creed, that must be hell if you're disgustingly intolerant of other cultures. You'll be hard pressed to find movies that are as white and bland as your narrow worldview will allow, and you'll definitely not watch any foreign language film. Are their racist books, and enough to maintain a reading habit? Is your life just scrolling through Twitter retweeting other racists, watching garbage news outlets and reading the daily mail?
