A top Boris Johnson ally has lashed out at Dave for calling the Prime Minister a real racist at the BRITs.
Home Secretary Priti Patel stated the claim was complete rubbish and maintained no one could level the allegation against the Tory leader before meeting him personally.
Rapper Dave used his performance to yield politically-charged lyrics and comment on the aftereffect of the Grenfell fire, which came days after a No 10 advisor said black Americans had a lower average IQ than white Americans and then resigned his appointment.
However, Priti Patel hit back at allegations the Prime Minister was guilty of racial discrimination and she said that Boris Johnson was not a racist at all and she thought the remarks were extremely improper.
And in an interview, she added the comments made by Dave were very much a generalisation and musicians and artists say all kinds of things. However, she didn’t see the BRITs performance but stated that she’s served with the Prime Minister and that she knows Boris Johnson well and that no way is he a racist.
It comes after the artist, who won Best Album gave a show-stopping performance demanding ‘Equality is a right’ as words such as ‘Black’ and ‘Go Home’ flashed up in the visuals.
The musician, whose full name is David Omoregie, is not the first to reprimand the Prime Minister from the BRITs platform. Stormzy used his performance two years ago to ask Theresa May ‘Where’s the money for Grenfell? What you thought we just forgot about Grenfell?
‘You criminals and you’ve got the cheek to call us savages, you should do some jail time, you should pay some damages, you should burn your house down and see if you can manage this.’
What Dave said about Boris Johnson resonated with people, especially following the incident where No 10 brought in a policy adviser who thought that black people were inferior intellectually to white people.
And Boris Johnson has a lot to do to satisfy the community that he’s not excessively adverse about black people and Muslim people, and in the meantime, Priti Patel made an eyebrow-raising claim as she supported Britain’s decision to deport drug offenders, many of which have lived in the United Kingdom for decades back to Jamaica.
She stated that there was no such thing as dabbling in drugs, despite her Cabinet colleague Michael Gove previously revealing he did just that with cocaine and Boris Johnson has also declined to answer clearly whether he took cocaine once as a teenager.
What do you folks think? Do you believe that Boris Johnson is a racist? I mean, look at the things he says about people who aren’t white.
Boris Johnson is a party leader of the media age and don’t overlook the fact that Boris was a journalist before he went into politics, so he knows what to say and not what to say to them.
And yet this current Prime Minister has displayed exceptional determination to limit media inspection, whether it’s banning ministers from appearing on the Today programme and Good Morning Britain, or banning them and their special advisers from talking to journalists, Boris Johnson is exposing himself to be a brooding and shady politician, forever at odds with his cheeky chappie persona.
I think we should presume that there’s a strong element of projection at play or is it because Boris Johnson was a partisan journalist that he’s an enemy of press freedom and that he believes all journalists are like him and that they’ll twist, warp and edit respectively.
You can see the same projection in the controlling of his co-workers. Just as a general who has taken control in a military coup keeps a close eye on his army to make sure no one else is considering using the same tactics against him, so Boris Johnson is determined his ministers can never dream of replicating his tricks.
Boris Johnson won power by exploiting his mastery of the media, which was so assured journalists referred to him as ‘Boris, the reader’s and viewer’s friend’, and naturally, he’s making sure Conservative ministers can’t do unto him as he did unto David Cameron and Theresa May, and it’s working for now.
And Boris Johnson has been so thriving at diminishing his co-workers, that if the Prime Minister’s time among us were to end tomorrow, who would have the stature and political footing to succeed him because there only appears to be room for one big beast in the Boris Johnson vivarium.
Mudslinging works both ways and it takes a more powerful person to build bridges and forge a better society for everyone, and it starts with every one of us in small ways and not taking what doesn’t belong to you.
It’s about creating a fair society, which Boris Johnson has no intention of doing, and Dave might be singing his song about Grenfell, which simply stokes resentment. But is he giving the money from his song to help the victims of Grenfell?
And we shouldn’t judge a man by the colour of his skin but by the content of his soul, and if man was to follow a few simple rules we would be living in a wonderful world.
Dave the rapper is okay, I’ve listened to him before, although I must say it’s not my thing and I’ve found that most rapping lyrics are about crime, discrimination, demeaning women and how bad off the black race is, and people buy this rap and listen to it and then get brainwashed, and it just seems he’s another guy with a chip on his shoulder using the race card to further his career, although we’re all entitled to free speech.
However, if it was a white person recording a song saying that blacks are racist, I’d probably end up in jail, and the state of the United Kingdom now horrifies me.
The problem is that we’ve raised a generation whose main way of feeling special is to openly call people bigots and radicals, and this is what you get.
A society of fools who believe they’re securing points by calling their Prime Minister and Presidents and Commanders in Chief racist and fascist, and then swaggering around as if they’re fearless protesters in the USSR or something, but are they wrong? And should we be giving Dave a platform to preach?
Yes, of course, he has a platform to preach, it’s called freedom of speech and why shouldn’t he when we have an entire cabinet who are brown-nosing each other and how pitiful they all look on TV and outside No 10, and most of the time I feel somewhat ashamed that there are people in this country cheering for this shambolic mess of no-hopers attempting to run the country.
And as for Priti Patel who doesn’t classify herself as a racist, for which a person of ethnic colour, she is, but then she would say she’s not a racist and she should be ashamed of herself because she’s clearly in bed with Boris Johnson.
It shouldn’t matter who you are or where you come from. What the colour of your skin is or what religious background you hail from, nobody should be subjected to racism of any kind because we’re all human beings and should be treated as such, and a true racist will go round calling everyone else a racist to cover their tracks because they accuse the other side of which they’re guilty.
But then most of us are guilty of having a tiny mind!
And we seem to be obsessed with colour and Priti Patel appears to be a person of dubious morals and ethics and yet she’s still our Home Secretary, and yes, we’re all a tad racist, but Boris Johnson seems to be well above the rest.
And when Priti Patel does finally crawl out of Boris Johnson’s backside, people might see that he’s a racist and a liar, but those that are Tories, the facts won’t mean anything to them.
