Rivers Of Blood

Rivers Of Blood
March 4, 2016 Admin

On April 20th, 1968, Enoch Powell, a member of the Conservative Party Shadow Cabinet in the UK, gave a speech to the General Meeting of the West Midlands Area Conservative Political Centre, which has since been labeled the “Rivers of Blood” speech.

That title comes from an allusion to The Aeneid Powell made in the speech in which he declared: “As I look ahead, I am filled with foreboding; like the Roman, I seem to see ‘the River Tiber foaming with much blood.'”

The topic of the speech was the quickly increasing levels of third world immigration to the UK, and the fear and concern Powell’s constituents were expressing to him about it. Powell was aware of just how controversial the speech would be before he gave it. The lines considered most incendiary were mostly quotes and paraphrasings of things that others had said to him, but either way in the massive fallout after the speech Powell was sacked from his position as Shadow Defense Secretary.

It is argued today whether Powell can fairly be described as “predicting” “Rivers of Blood” in the streets of the UK, but the general consensus is that the speech was indeed a warning of the horrors that mass immigration would bring.

The video above contains clips of Powell supporters talking to the media in the days following his speech. It is interesting to note the strenuous denials of racism we see even then in his supporters. This perfectly mirrors what we see today in the UK in which preservationist groups such as the EDL, Britain First, and PEGIDA UK recklessly hurl accusations of racism at each other, and compete to disavow it, even while they all try to fight back against the destruction of the UK through massive-immigration, and even while they are all labelled as racist by the mainstream suicidalist media. These internecine accusations are particularly unhelpful in the case of these organizations today, but the phenomenon also bears mentioning because of just how endemic it seems to be in these natives of the UK.

It does make sense. The Powell supporters in these clips, just like their contemporaries today, are on the whole decent, normal, everyday Britons. They were taught all through school about the evils of racism, and their fathers and grandfathers most likely fought against the Nazi’s in WWII. They do not want to dislike anyone, especially not because of the color of their skin. Yet their common sense, and their instinctual desire to protect their families, culture, and tribe, throws them hard against the realities of modern day Britain every day. They perceive the massive changes at play that are slowly devouring their country. They understand the hatred and opposition in the eyes of the immigrants they see in the streets. They understand that things will not end peacefully.

Powell attempted to bring attention to this nearly 50 years ago in this speech, and it is worth remembering not just for how prescient it was, but for the perspective it brings us. For who can imagine what Powell would have said- what even his left-wing critics would have said- if they could have been shown a glimpse into the future, and be made aware of the events of Rotherham? If Powell and the other Conservatives, and indeed all the Britons serving in the Labor party as well, could have known that 1400 little white British girls, many pre-pubescent, all between the ages of 11-16, would be groomed, enslaved, beaten, tortured, gang-raped by hundreds of Pakistani men, and shared like animals between members of the Muslim community, all because social workers and police were too afraid of being called racist to intervene, what would they say? And if they were told that in the first major election after these events came to light, that they would barely be discussed, what would they say? I believe that not just Powell, but even most of his critics as well(!), would be sickened to levels words cannot do justice, and that they would support any- ANY- means to right the ship of state, including overthrowing the government itself.

    What a pathetic situation. The horrors already perpetrated on the English, and yet to come, are beyond words, but still, “quiet desperation is the English way.”

      Yes now that I come to think of it, the English don’t exactly have a history of revolution or massive action. Then again they were the world power for so long, and the current situation is so perverse and insane that it is hard to even judge it within the historical continuum.

        The first and second Barron wars come to mind, as well as the English Civil war, and of course The American Revolution, which was after all a civil war.

    It was very sad to hear the prediction of Powell for the future of Britain.
    Sad also that the then Conservatives had policies that would deal with the influx of migrants. Powell was right about the effects of the Racial Discrimination Act. Since then the policy has move further toward discrimination of the indigenous British and now includes the erosion of freedom of speech. Apparently there are new restrictions being made on the use of social media. To further restrict the expression of concern and opposition to government actions, by the new Conservative Party. Powell was of course right in his predictions about the long term effects of mass immigration on the population. In terms of resources, housing, school places, medical care and benefits, he would not foresee the millions of Eastern Europeans draining these resources, through the open door policy of the EU. The governments response remains the same but even worse.

      Yes it is amazing that it is the Conservative party under whom all this current insanity is progressing. The Lib Dems have dissapeared and Labor is now an ISIS-front group. UKIP are hopeless. Good news on the wind from Slovakia though! And even in Britain let’s not forget out Tolkien, for just when things seem bleakest is when “eucatastrophe” can occur, and things can be turned around. Think, the sudden breakout of 4GW and mass violence in Germany or Sweden could easily be the wake up call native Brit’s need to stand up.

    Like Hobbits, the English will always surprise you.

    Take Rotherham in Yorkshire. For over 10 years the police, the city officials, the social workers, the lying media kept a lid on the community attempting to report and prosecute uruk crimes against Rotherham school girls who were being hassled, groomed, pimped and trafficked. Hundreds of girls. The police (of course) were ordered to stand down.

    Now the English erupt in all their fury with EDL rallies, the real English flag (that would be the red cross of St George)

    And usually the real English national anthem (Jerusalem) which has always been confined to rugby league (with cricket the national game). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ko5FEqgqVk4

      Lynda- As an American I had never heard of “Jerusalem”, but I just listened to the very beautiful track of it you linked to, and read the Wikipedia article on it. As a fan of Blake and as a devotee to Tolkien’s idea of a “Far green country”, and everything else that “Tolkienism” implies, I absolutely love it and find it very cool (and moving ) 🙂

      It is my sincerest hope that Britons, whether through the EDL or through future groups to come, can vanquish the forces arrayed against them (and around them, tragically), and restore England to the “Jerusalem” Blake knew it as. Despite the overwhelming obstacles in our path, it is the highest honor I could imagine for all of us to fight against it, as well as the greatest responsibility.
