UK government’s political correctness sinks Scruton over Soros comments

Roger Scruton outnumbered!

The ‘conservative’ academic Sir Roger Scruton has been sacked from an advisory body set up by the minority UK ‘Conservative’ government after making politically incorrect remarks about the Jewish finance capitalist George Soros.

Sir Roger said it was “nonsense” for commentators to accuse the Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orban of ‘anti-semitism’ or ‘Islamophobia’ after Hungary closed down a Soros-funded university in Budapest.

Sir Roger said: “The Hungarians were extremely alarmed by the sudden invasion of huge tribes of Muslims from the Middle East.”

George Soros funds political groups, charities and institutions across the Western world that favour open borders and compulsory multiculturalism. He is the focus of various so-called conspiracy theories about what drives the pro-immigration policies of liberal Western governments after the obvious failure of both mass immigration and state-sponsored integration over the decades.

Despite the native population’s opposition to mass immigration and multiculturalism across Europe and the wider Western world, many people seek to explain why the likes of Angela Merkel of Germany and Emmanuel Macron of France continue to persist with those suicidal policies.

Sir Roger continued: “Anybody who doesn’t think that there’s a Soros empire in Hungary has not observed the facts.”

He also said that ‘Islamophobia’ was a propaganda word “invented by the Muslim Brotherhood in order to stop discussion of a major issue.”

As a result of those comments, suitably twisted in an interview with the left-leaning New Statesman magazine, he was sacked as a government adviser by the Tory Housing minister (the clue is in his name) James Brokenshire. He had been chairing the Ministry of Housing’s Building Better, Building Beautiful Commission which was looking into ways of making housing and architecture more appreciated by those who use the actual buildings.

In the past, Sir Roger has also said politically incorrect things about Chinese people and homosexuals.

A black Labour politician said that he was using the language of ‘white supremacists’ and deserved to be sacked.
