Letter challenging the Neo-Maoist cultural revolutionaries!

Letter challenging the Neo-Maoist cultural revolutionaries!

Having read with disgust articles about the spineless cowardness of the current Trustees of St Botolph’s Church of Aldgate in the City of London and of the Sir John Cass Foundation, I wrote to the main newspaper which was reporting this story. 

I reproduce my letter below.  What do you think?

Here is the letter:-

Dear Sir

Re:  Your article published on the 18th June:- “Now St Botolph’s Church in Aldgate removes the bust of John Cass following George Floyd killing in US” by Mike Brook

Letter for publication
I write with regard to the above report, in which your reporter writes about what, I think, is the disgraceful cowardice of the vicar and Parochial Church Council of St Botolph’s and of the Trustees of the Sir John Cass Foundation, not only in their treatment of their institutions’ charitable benefactor, but also in abject and, I dare say it, slavish, conformity to the neo-Maoist agenda of “Black Lives Matter” in seeking to smash England’s “Four Olds” (“Old customs, old culture, old habits and old ideas”) in their new “Cultural Revolution”. 
The Trustees of England’s institutions should not behave in such an abject way.  If they are not prepared to stand up for our culture, institutions and heritage, they should resign and/or be prosecuted.  I have started the ball rolling in terms of getting the Vicar and Parochial Church Council prosecuted for, in effect, Breach of Planning Permission and Vandalism in damaging an ancient monument.  I intend to report the Trustees of the Sir John Cass Foundation to the Charity Commission for sanctions to be applied to them if they persist.
Your article did not explain that Sir John Cass was not personally a slave trader, but was a merchant trading in the City.  To say that he was a slave trader is rather similar to saying that a Director of BP is guilty of polluting the ocean, which I respectfully suggest that any sensible person would consider to be manifestly absurd, but then, of course, cultural Marxists do not care about historical truths. 
Another historical truth is that it was the English that for the first time ever in all human history banned slavery.  The initial and decisive step was taken in 1807 with the Slave Trade Act of Parliament.  This banned anyone from shipping slaves to, in particular, the Americas.  From then on our Royal Navy vigorously enforced the ban at the cost of many of our sailors lives and also of great expense.   In 1833 slavery, as a condition itself, was banned throughout the British Empire by the Slavery Abolition Act and that also was the first ban on slavery ever anywhere. 
Whilst English Christian culture resolved to get rid of slavery it is notable that the African and Islamic Kingdoms, that had been so involved in it for the previous thousand years, did not ban slavery until they were either overthrown in order to suppress slavery (i.e. Lugard in Nigeria or Gordon in Khartoum), or as a result of intense diplomatic pressure by our Government e.g. on the Sultan of Turkey. 
If you are in favour of Liberty then you and the world owes the English Nation and the English People a great debt of gratitude for this (and indeed many other reasons as we more or less single handedly created the modern world!).
I invite your readers to write in to say what they think.
Yours faithfully

Here is the offending article:-

 Now St Botolph’s Church in Aldgate removes bust of John Cass following George Floyd killing in US

A bust of the 17th century slave trader John Cass has been removed from St Botolph parish church at Aldgate in the wake of global protests following the killing of black activist George Floyd in America.  

The removal carried out this-morning which was given the go-ahead by the Archdeacon of London after a vote at an emergency meeting of St Botolph’s parochial church council.

The church decision to distance itself from historic links to its benefactor’s involvement in the slave trade follows Sir John Cass secondary school in Stepney pledging to change its name and the Cass Foundation in the City removing a similar bust.

“We voted unanimously to seek permission to remove the bust,” St Botolph’s rector Laura Jørgensen said in a statement to the East London Advertiser. 

“Permission was given and the bust was removed this morning."

"We apologise for the years spent celebrating the legacy of a man without understanding the origin of his wealth gained through slavery and human exploitation"  

“Removing the bust is an important step in acknowledging that history, but it’s not the end of our journey. We are a diverse congregation and promise to do all we can to eradicate racism, discrimination and inequality.”

John Cass was born near Aldgate in 1661 and served as a City alderman and sheriff before being elected an MP in 1712. He had set up a school in 1710 in Aldgate for 50 boys and 40 girls and rented buildings in St Botolph’s churchyard.

The name Cass appears on many institutions in the East End and the City. His foundation set up in 1748 gives grants to promote education in inner London including the secondary school in Stepney Way and a primary school in Aldgate both named after him.

The secondary school now wants to change its name and is looking for suitable proposals.

Two universities also adopted the name Cass for centres of learning with funding from the foundation.

The Metropolitan’s Cass School of Arts was embroiled in controversy three years ago when the Aldgate and Whitechapel campuses were occupied by students to stop them being closed down, drawing support from the mayor of Tower Hamlets.

The occupation protest stopped the arts school being transferred to the university’s main campus in Holloway. The school also changed its name after the mass protest.

City University’s business school in Clerkenwell adopted the name Cass in 2002 following a donation from the foundation to promote education for those from disadvantaged backgrounds. It has now begun a review of all its historic funding sources to find out if there are any other links with slavery. 

The foundation commissioned an independent academic in February to look into links to the slave trade. It reaffirmed its “abhorrence of racism and discrimination” in an initial statement following George Floyd’s death and subsequent protests around the world.

  1. I agree with you wholeheartedly, Robin.

  2. Saudi Arabia did not ban slavey officially until 1962. Many English, Irish and white Europeans were targeted by the slavers of North Africa and Arabia. With an estimated 1m being enslaved. Baltimore and village in County Cork the whole village was taken, not a soul left. Cornwall in England was a major target as were our Navy and fishing fleets by the same slavers.

  3. Very true:

  4. Well done Robin. I am a new member and support you wholeheartedly.
    I will donate what I can to help you prosecute these cowards. They deserve it.

  5. Well spoken, Robin.
    Do they not realise that they are in a spiritual battle?

    "Do you not know that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy. And you are His temple." [1 Corinthians Ch. 3 verses 6-7].
    Also, [Ephesians Ch. 6 verses 10-18] comes to mind.

    They need to understand the Threat.

    Four Olds - Chinese History.
    Four Olds we were,
    (1) Old Customs. (2) Old Culture. (3) Old Habits. (4) Old Ideas.
    The Four Olds began in Beijing on 19th August 1966, shortly after the launch of the Curtural Revolution, they were irradiated by the youth.

    Winston Churchill would say, 'Know your enemies'; observe their actions, their speeches; and realise their strategies, their thoughts and minds.
    'Fear' is a reaction,
    'Courage' is a decision.

    God said, "Be Strong and very Courageous.... ." [Joshua Ch.1 verse 7].

    "It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery." [Galatians Ch. 5 verse 1].

    (6) "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. (7) And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
    (8) Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things.
    (9) Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me - put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with by you.
    [Philippines Ch. 4 Verses 6-9].

    Further information,

  6. I was going to suggest that you could take the first English legal steps against slavery even further back to 1770 with the case of
    (and possibly to the older case law cited for the slave therein).

    Lord Mansfield also took a moderate position for the times in the brutal case of Gregson v. Gilbert, 22d May, 1783. 3 DOUGL. 233.

    - but have the Cultural Marxists / School of Critical Theory got to Somerset v. Stewart too to belittle it? See this:

    Likewise the current day denigration (probably from the same quarter) of the so-called "Little-Englanders" who in fact wished to avoid foreign entanglements and the growth of empire which is never for the public good but private enrichment.

    The Money Power permeates it all.

  7. The Church of England, Roman Catholic Church and other churches are not preaching the Gospel. They do NOT know who we are.

    White Europeans are in Biblical terms known as the House of Israel and Jews are known as the House of Judea. Both Jews and white Europeans are brothers but sadly not everyone wants to know that. The inhabitants of the British Isles and that includes Eire and N Ireland are a collections of nations known in the Bible as "Ephraim". The question is do the church know this? Probably not.

    We exist as a people in the same way as the Jews exist. The Jews are our brothers and if they exist so do we.


  8. Yes Robin is there a petition or a legal letter /email I can send to these on a other note has the English Democrats got more lawyers than just you to keep this kind of actions going in the future

  9. The only slave-owners in England today are the usurers, as they always have been. They think they "are as gods" and entitled to play with the genetics of a people. The latest being the grant of UK citizenship and right of abode to 3million Hong Kong Chinese. And that despite the accord over the handover of HK in 1997.

    This action and its numerous earlier increments surely amounts to genocide under UNO definition.
