Former Baroness Sayeeda Hussain Warsi has just threatened the Conservative Party again – a government she is supposed to support.
Just a week ago she said that if David Cameron and the Tory Party didn’t give in to Muslim demands about Israel, it would lose Muslim votes.
And here again she has said the same about attracting Muslim voters. Except, of course, this sectarian politician didn’t use the words “Muslim voters.” She spoke, instead, of “ethnic minority voters.” This is utter deceit on Warsi’s part because this woman has hardly ever – if at all – spoken out for any “ethnic minority voters” who aren’t Muslim.
As I said, Warsi is a communalist politician from head to toe. And indeed she entered the higher levels of the Conservative Party to further her sectarian dreams. This isn’t to say that Warsi has never discussed any non-Muslim issue. Of course she has. If Warsi had only ever talked about Muslim and Islamic issues (when she was the Conservative Party chairman), then that would have been just too obvious on her part.
None of this is a surprise.
There are Muslims up and down the country who have become councillors – and to a lesser extent MPs – specifically to advance Islamic and Muslim causes. That’s why you often find the bizarre situation in which Muslim councillors leave one party to join a completely different one. There are many examples of Muslim Tory councillors becoming Labour councillors and vice versa. And just in the last few days, a Muslim councillor left the Conservative Party to become a member of Respect.
This sectarian (Muslim) mindset is going to end up in a situation which will be similar – at least in some ways – to what happened in the English Civil War in the 17th century.
The Political Demands of Warsi and Her Fellow Muslims
I said that Lady Warsi didn’t use the words “Muslim voters”.
What she actually said was that if the Tories want to attract “ethnic minority voters,” then they’ve left it “a little late”.
Again, it’s clear that she meant Muslims by “ethnic minorities” because she also tied this Muslim-votes issue into the Government’s handling of the Gaza situation. More accurately, after talking about her anger that the Government hadn’t given into Muslim demands over Gaza, she said:
… the electoral reality is that we will not win outright Conservative majorities until we start attracting more of the ethnic vote.
Originally Warsi did believe that David Cameron would be amenable to Muslim demands. This is what she said her view of Cameron was in 2005:
This is a guy who gets today’s Britain. He’s a new kind of Conservative. He’s comfortable with today’s Britain.
In other words, in 2005 Warsi believed that David Cameron would allow more sharia law in the UK, would follow Muslim-voter dictates on the Middle East, Afghanistan and who knows what else.
And, my God, Warsi was right to have faith in the politically shallow David Cameron.
He’s the man who has made London the “Islamic finance capital of the world” who once called the English Defence League (EDL) “filth” who’s virtually a cultural (though not economic) leftist on all sorts of issues (not just Islamic/Muslim ones); as well as a man who has said that British people must learn Muslim (though, like Warsi, he said “British Asian”) “values” rather than “the other way around.”
Despite all that, Warsi believes that today’s Conservative Party is not as keen on Muslim votes as it should be. She also, bizarrely, thinks that the Party is too, well, conservative.
The party leadership has shifted since then . I think over time it will be a regressive move because we have to appeal to all of Britain, not just because it’s morally the right thing to do.
You see, this is all about Muslim votes. Or to use Warsi’s own words: it’s all about the “electoral reality” which faces the Conservative Party.
And the electoral reality which faces the Tories is that they will have to:
- take a strong stand on Israel (Warsi wants an “arms embargo”)
- pull British soldiers out of Afghanistan
- allow more sharia law in the UK
- ban the EDL and other counter-jihadist groups
- speak out against UKIP’s “racism” and “anti-immigration policies”
- completely revise their positions on the Middle East and the entire Muslim world.
So welcome to Baroness Warsi’s sectarian Britain.
And welcome to the first stirrings of future civil conflict in the UK.
