Why do remainers think brexit is racist?Watch
The reason that particular argument is made is because, in those making the accusations minds at least, it justifies the vilification of anyone that dared to look in a different way as to how the EU affects them.
They are generally middle class pseudo socialists/ liberals that were doing fine in the EU because they could get nice cheap labour took look after little Tarquin and Arrabella or do their nice suburban gardens for them.
It's bigotry basically.
David Blunkett and the widower of Jo Cox are remainers.
Both have discussed the pro's & con's of voting brexit without resorting to venomous character assassination of all brexit voters.
Mr Blunkett gave an interview that included the sentence "It's my people who voted for Brexit. To call them racist is wrong and divisive".
I feel quite embarrassed of the suppression or lack thereof of the opposing views alongside misrepresentation.
However my opinions are biased due to my personal background - overall if we want to engage in a positive discussion we need two opposing sides which
don't victimize themselves nor demonize the opposition.
They're not all racists, but most of them are unbelievably misinformed, especially with Boris Johnson lying that Brexit will save the NHS millions, just to get people to vote leave.
They want to get rid of the immigrants that aren't white and don't speak perfect English - because they're racist.
Nobody said ''Brexit is racist" -- what the **** does that even mean? what a lot of people have said is that, possibly, the majority of Brexiters had, if not racist then at least xenophobic motives for voting Brexit.
If you assume a lot of stuff about Brexiteers without any hard data and evidence, it's safe to say you're just anti-Brexit, not really having made up your mind on the basis of facts. It's a really common prejudice.
They chose to take advantage of the minority of Leave supporters who really were stupid racists and created a bogeyman. They tried to imply that average Leave voters were stupid, closed-minded, intolerant racists, and made their identity 'we're against that sort of person'.
Backfired and cost them a referendum they should have easily won... and probably did more to create the extreme division we still see today than anything else.
