The elite use Diane Abbott racist comments to divide and conquer the white working class

by | 5th, January 2012

DIANE Abbott MP says white people love to play divide and rule “. Abbott says this on twitter dying a chat with freelance journalist Bim Adewunmi about black teenager Stephen Lawrence and his racist murderers Gary Dobson, David Norris and whoever else still to be brought to book. She say whites are using a tactic as old as colonialism “. Is this because black people were always united? Or is it because white people are all racists? The media and her enemies says Diane Abbott needs to explain. Outraged of twitter that place where fair-minded, right-minded people demand that Emma West be raped and murdered sense a new target for their hate and intolerance.

(Just as you wonder how worse it can get for Abbott, George #Galloway says on twitter: Diane has been my friend for 25 years .” Ouch!)

Abbott say her comment has been taken out of context” .

Tory MP Nadhim Zahawi says the context is that Abbott is a bigot:

“A healthy society should not tolerate any form of racism. DAbott should apologise and resign or EdM must sack her. DAbbott of all people should lead by example. Must resign.”

For what? She should resign as an MP for saying what she thinks? And was it racist? Do whites feel threatened?

And exchange on Sky News ensues:

Sophy Ridge (Sky political reporter): “Can you understand the consternation that your tweet has created?”
Diane Abbott: “Well I was actually referring to the nature of 19th century European colonialism, but that’s a bit much to go into 140 characters”
SR: “But if you look at it out of context, saying ‘white people love to divide and rule’ is a pretty controversial remark if people don’t see it in context. Do you accept that it was not a wise thing to put out there?”
DA: “I think the tweet was taken out of context and some people have interpreted it maliciously”

Some of Diane Abbott’s best friends are 19th century European colonialists.

Ridge adds:

SR: “Well, explain to us then, and for our viewers who are talking about this and there’s a lot of Twitter activity going on, explain to us what you actually meant by it..?”

Abbott’s phone rings. Sophy Ridge, political correspondent at Sky News, says it was from the bland Ed Miliband (no, not that one ).

Ridge: “He made it clear she had to apologise personally to him,the Labour party & anybody who was offended.”
