Brexit - the aftermath would be a complete joke were it not so tragic.
A civil war of words has broken out. Brexit voters are being verbally attacked by remain voters and ironically, are being accused of intolerance, racism, selfishness and the most sadly of all, being 'old' and 'uneducated'.
Is it just me who sees the irony in what the remain voters are saying?
So Brexit voters are racist, prejudiced and judgemental are they?
Isn't it just a teeny bit prejudicial and judgemental for the anyone to be making such sweeping statements about the 52% of the British population who voted to get out of Europe? Is it ever ok to label people we don’t even know, as racist?
Is it ever ok to label anyone as anything without actually knowing what is in their hearts?
Is it ok to make that assumption about people whose lives, IQ, background and experience of life we know nothing about?
Isn't any kind judgemental attitude and 'ism' unacceptable in today's world? Or is it just racism that counts?

If targeting someone because of a difference is wrong, then it's wrong right across the spectrum of possible differences between human beings from race, sexuality, gender to having different beliefs whether they be religious or political.
It's not ok to shame, criticise, pre-judge, insult, belittle and mock people for having an opinion that resulted in them using their vote in a certain way.It's not ok to shame, criticise, pre-judge, insult, belittle and mock people for having an opinion that resulted in them using their vote in a certain way.

Anyone who is doing this in the aftermath of Brexit is exhibiting traits that are as nasty and unacceptable as racism or any other 'ism' you care to name.
Shaming, criticising, pre-judging, insulting, belittling and mocking people for ANY kind of difference is unacceptable and wrong.
There will never be peace in the world as long as people think it is ok to pick and choose which 'isms' they will indulge in when it suits them.
The irony of remain voters calling Brexit voters 'racist' and 'pre-judiced’ would be comical if it were not so tragic and hypocritical.

Equally, it is just as wrong and ignorant to denigrate a whole group of voters based on preconceived notions about why some individuals made the decisions they made.

If you are someone who bangs the drum about tolerance, kindness, peace, love and every kind of 'ism' on the planet while labelling Brexit voters stupid, racist and uneducated, are you not guilty of bigotry, prejudice and hate towards people who are simply different to you?
Difference isn’t just about race, colour, religion etc. All differences should be respected and tolerated and that includes political differences. No one has the right to call another person horrible names because they voted Brexit any more than we have the right to call people names based on skin colour.
I despair of ever seeing human beings unite as one world while we can't even tolerate and respect the opinions and democratic actions of others without resorting to prejudicial insults?I despair of ever seeing human beings unite as one world while we can't even tolerate and respect the opinions and democratic actions of others without resorting to prejudicial insults?

The whole Brexit debacle is making the possibility of world peace look even more remote than it ever was.
If we can't tolerate such basic differences inside our own country, how are we ever going to tolerate major cultural differences when they clash with our own ideas and desires?
What does it say about 'haters' that they believe Brexit was all about immigration and race?
It probably says so much when in reality, the issues surrounding staying in or coming out were extremely complex and took a huge amount of historical research and reading to understand.
All those who sincerely believe Brexit was purely about immigration are showing, in my humble opinion, a distinct lack of awareness of the very complex web of economic issues that render a definitive decision on the merits of staying or leaving practically impossible.
I could only come to the conclusion that there were very strong arguments for both outcomes and the benefits/drawbacks of each depended on a massive, almost incomprehensible, range of factors.

It appears to me that the real issues were drowned out lies put out by both sides by people who had their own needs and interests at heart.
And let's not forget, all the leading politicians of the world are merely puppets having their strings pulled by the 2% who own 90% of the world's wealth.
Why else do all newly elected Prime Ministers get summoned to meet with the infamous Bilderberg group? And oh my goodness, what a road we go down when we start looking into that. Best not to if you want to keep a rose tinted view of how 'fair' the world is.

No run of the mill peasants are listed as being part of the group, in fact they go to great lengths to keep us out of their meetings. Read the article.
There is nothing the peasants can do to stop them. And they love it when we fight amongst ourselves - it takes the focus off the real crimes against humanity.
That’s why our heavily manipulated press would have us believe race hate crime has risen since Brexit. What a great way to continue the in-fighting while they lounge on their private islands where the only peasants they ever see are obediently serving the Champagne.
So let's stop all this bigotry and nastiness and look at a few more pictures of fit Scotsmen in nice kilts. Oh is that sexist? Well quite frankly Scarlett....
Now tell me what you think about the mud-slinging that has been going on in the press and on social media.
Has the vicious Brexit aftermath got you down and made you despair of your fellow humans?
