My ancestors were taken from their homes across the sea in boats, stripped of their rights and enslaved.— David Lammy (@DavidLammy) September 14, 2019

The mind boggles doesn't it? He bemoans "colonial amnesia" yet appears to suggest we should erase from history our proud ship-building tradition because some of those ships happened to transport his ancestors. We're an island you moron, we build ships.

Deep lyrics just dropped by Sam Fender: “The patriarchy is real, the proof is here in my song. I'll sit and mansplain every detail of the things it does wrong— David Lammy (@DavidLammy) September 13, 2019
'Cause I'm a white male, full of shame
My ancestry is evil, and their evil is still not gone" 🤜🏿 https://t.co/EETqtiuPQ3
Clearly Dave has massive respect for limp-wristed white males who express shame for the crimes of their ancestors. Obviously, when they say ancestors they don't mean those who fought fascism in the 1940s. Unless it comes to Brexit, then those evil old fuckers can't die soon enough. You see Dave, you can't have it both ways. You can't in one breath use the imagery of WWII heroism to push one agenda, while trashing those same people because they didn't vote Remain.

"Fragility"? The brass neck of this incompetent race baiting snowflake.
