Now Brexit Remoaners join Climate Change Marxists in hijacking the Lockdown.
A senior lecturer at a university in the United Kingdom says that his leftist colleagues want the coronavirus lockdown to continue indefinitely so that “racist Brexit” will be cancelled. The lecturer’s comments were posted on Toby Young’s brilliant website LockDownSceptics.org. The Lecturer wants to remain anonymous for obvious reasons.
“I’m a Senior Lecturer at a UK higher education institution currently stuck doing remote working amongst a group of typical identitarian, fair-trade, falafel-munching academics. It probably won’t surprise you to learn that my colleagues really don’t want this magic-money-tree-fuelled piss-about to end. They chirrup along quite happily to each other on Microsoft Teams about how it might bring down the “Tory Scum” Government and thus also cancel “racist Brexit”. Part of the ongoing appeal of the lockdown for them is the opportunity to spend all day safe at home baking Nordic-inspired loaf cakes, knocking out virtue signalling blogs about sustainable living (whilst simultaneously planning their next foreign holiday, of course) and angrily taking to social media to demand more white deaths from COVID-19 as a form of reparation for colonial injustices. Okay, I might have made that last one up, but you get the idea. This has become a middle-class wet dream of what the revolutionary overthrow of capitalism would look like.”
There were no further details about the lecturers in question, but odds-on they will be imparting their bigoted, out of touch views to pupils as part of their role at the University. Possibly working in one of the Social Sciences, known for having a high percentage of progressive, left-wing agitants. This sort of toxic, anti-British, view will be palmed-off as 'education' whilst really indoctrinating students into their narrow view of the world.
The lecturer’s comments once again emphasise how the debate over the lockdown has been completely politicised. Many on the left who purport to only care about ‘saving lives’ and who viciously attack anyone who advocates for an end to lockdown are only in fact doing so to exploit the crisis for power.
