Earlier this week, a video showcasing an act of true racism went viral on the interwebs, receiving over 6 million views in less than three days. The video, My Tram Experience shows a British woman (allegedly drunk) yelling on a train about how minorities and immigrants had ruined her country.
What has this country come to? A load of black people and a load of f***ing Polish?...None of you are f***ing English. Get back to your own f***ing [countries]…Go do your own countries, don’t come and do mine. Britain is nothing now. Britain is f*** all. My Britain is f*** all now. Britian is f*** all. My Britian is f*** all.You just got to love the black guy sitting behind her. He almost gets up as if he’s going to clobber her, but decides she’s not worth his time.
…Go back to where you come from. Go back to…f***ing Nig-Nic-ag-gu-ah or wherever you come from.
…This is my British country. Until I let you lot come over…Yes, this is my British country. You ain’t British. You ain’t British. Are you British? You ain’t f***ing British! F*** off! You’re black. You’re black. You ain’t British. You’re black. Where did you come from?
…Look, at the whole f***ing tram. Look at them. It’s more black than it’s white. This is all black and f***ing brown people.
Now it’s safe to say that most people would recognize this as racist and xenophobic. No one could possibly defend what this woman did, right? Right?
Enter YouTube user MarmiteMan4, an anti-Semitic (oops, anti-“Zionist”), BNP-supporting European nationalist who considered this woman’s action an example of bravery.
The woman in that video…showed extreme courage to stand up for her people and her country surrounded by people who absolutely hate her, and would probably do a lot worse to her if she didn’t have a child with her.“Extreme courage”? Good grief! Perhaps in the sense that sticking a metal fork in a toaster requires extreme courage.
And then there’s this gem from TeutonicWarriorChick, a woman who once made a video warning about how the Jews controlling the media were trying to exterminate the white race through multiculturalism. This is here response:
Man that woman has balls! What do you think? Could you imagine anybody in America talking that way? No one in America would dare talk that way because whites are terrified of being called racist, because—you know what—racism is the number one crime in the world!But of course, she thought that the woman was setting a bad example for the child by spouting profanity (though spouting racist, xenophobic crap is apparently more acceptable for children).
But perhaps the most facepalmingly stupid defense was the following comment Coughlan000 found in the original video’s comment section, which he shared in his video response:
“Let me remind all of you of a similar incident that happened in Montgomery, Alabama in 1955 to a colored lady, Rosa Parks, who had the courage to stand up against racial oppression whilst on a bus, and the world rightfully applauded her actions. Now this woman has the courage to speak out about the melting pot nationality this country has become. Everyone condemns her. Her only fault is using the only type of language she knows to get her point across. I admire her courage for speaking out.”So let me get this straight: a woman spouting racist nonsense by shouting down minorities on a train is the exact same thing as a woman standing up against racist nonsense by refusing to follow racist laws forbidding her from sitting next to someone of a different race? False equivalency FTW!
Fortunately, there are sane people like Coughlan000 to counteract the insanity of folks like MarmiteMan4, TeutonicWarriorChick, and the crazy bus lady. Otherwise, my faith in humanity would only continue to decline.
