Priti Patel disapproved of Black Lives Matter protests – is anybody surprised?


Priti Patel and Boris Johnson: when he gets into trouble, she starts making questionable statements to the media.

It might be too much to say that Priti Patel’s obvious disdain for people of certain ethnic origins makes this a foregone conclusion.

So let’s just allow her record to speak for itself. Run a search for “Priti Patel” on this site and see what comes up. And see this for a current example of her behaviour:

On the current issue, The Guardian says she described the protests prompted by the killing of George Floyd by police in the United States as “dreadful”.

It seems she didn’t like the way that some of these protests turned violent after police became involved. Or did I misinterpret those events?

So, what did she think of the peaceful gesture that people chose to make – “taking the knee”?

Asked if she would be prepared to take the knee, she replied: “No I wouldn’t, and I would not have done at the time either.

So in other words, she didn’t like any kind of protest?

“I don’t support protest…”

Wow. So we’re all supposed to just knuckle under and accept any kind of ill-treatment, no matter how appalling – including murder by police officers?

I’m not okay with that. And I’m not alone:

Mind you, it seems odd that – after nobody asked her – Priti Patel should suddenly come out with a comment like this.

It’s as though there was another motive for it…

Or is that too much of a stretch?

    Well, what do you expect from this nasty woman? We know she is a bully despite their best attempts to cover that up now we know she doesn’t like protests because of course, you should agree with everything you’re told by Torys…Yeah, get real!

    I do have to ask how anyone is surprised at the hate and general evil attitudes of these Torys because they have no functional journalism in this country holding them to account they believe themselves untouchable and can do anything in there twisted little minds and sadly they are correct because people are scared of them. It’s just sad that jumped up gobshites are running this country and so many are blind to the hate and true awful personalities of these people…
