I have reasons for being a nationalist, you have already been told it is foolish to generalise about people. Nobody is surprised I am a nationalist after what my family and I have endured and still endure. It is illegal to voice views about criminal and dangerous immigrants and there are cases of tee-shirts and other things being the cause of arrest – hence the permanent statement tattooed on my skin. It completely separates me from the people who are slagging off immigrants in private and pretending to like them in public. My nationalism started in the 80’s as a bullied school kid and it grew exponentially with each wrong done to me over the years.
I don’t care what woes nationalism and imperialism caused over the last 200 years. Britain benefits from it today and the colonials put under the heel of the British boot are all benefiting from the woes of their people in the past. Look at the Cantonese around the World, the Indians and Pakistanis, especially the ones in the UK, then there are all the ex-colonies we left with a democracy, healthcare, law and order, sanitation, an education system and a ready made import/export commonwealth – plus the English language. More than reaping the rewards of our evil rule and raping their countries of all the resources we could. Look past the blaming finger pointers whining about colonialism who ignore the fact their country has a nuclear arsenal, a space program and huge military despite widespread poverty. Two thumbs up! Remember too a Nationalist is never going to care what foreigners think about the UK and the British. Most of us like being hated by them because we know why they do.
I am far from being a narcissist, I am not manipulative, I do not bully people or belittle others to make myself feel better about non-perfect things in my life and I have already agreed with you in another response – a narcissist is incapable of admitting they are wrong. I think you should understand what labels mean before you slap them on people.
And yes, my tattoos are an indulgence after decades of giving everything I have to selfish and unappreciative people or having it taken from me. You cannot take my tattoos and this indulgence cuts to the bone of some people I dislike. I feel great having bought myself something at last and the selfishness is nothing more than reciprocation. The best thing is not showing them to people who desperately want to see my tattoos they have heard about from others.
But sure Father Todd, you carry on being judgemental and generalise about millions of people who each have different circumstances. Label them with words you don’t know the meaning of and have I mentioned I hate all religions, Catholicism in particular.
