As a follow-up to my previous post, here’s another example of Multiculturalism in action in the UK.
A Labour Party member who expected to be able to stand for election in a local race was denied the opportunity because she was too white — and too Jewish. Here’s the story from the The Daily Mail:
Labour Party Embroiled in Race Row After Candidate Told She Was ‘Too White and Jewish’ to be Selected
The Labour Party has become embroiled in a race row after a prospective female councillor was allegedly told she was ‘too white and Jewish’ to be selected.
Elaina Cohen claims that Labour councillor Mahmood Hussain said he would not support her application for an inner-city ward because ‘my Muslim members don’t want you because you are Jewish’.
Mrs Cohen, 50, has made an official complaint about the alleged remarks made by Mr Hussain, a Muslim and former lord mayor of Birmingham.
She said: ‘I am shocked and upset that a member of the Labour Party in this day and age could even think something like that, let alone say it.
‘People should not be allowed to make racist comments like that. If someone in the party feels I cannot represent them because of my colour or religion, that’s ridiculous.
‘I felt particularly aggrieved because I have worked across all sections of the community, particularly with the Muslim section, and have been on official visits to Pakistan.’ [emphasis added]
“People should not be allowed to make racist comments like that.”
I’ve got some news for you, Mrs. Cohen: they aren’t — if they’re white. That’s why you can’t say things like that.
But since you’re white, people of color can discriminate against you to their hearts’ content. Deal with it.
And if you expect a friendly quid pro quo from the “Muslim section” of your community, think again. That’s not the way Islam works: accommodation ratchets in one direction only, towards that which benefits the Ummah.

Mrs Cohen had applied to stand as a Labour councillor for the Birmingham ward of East Handsworth and Lozells, which has a high Asian and Afro-Caribbean population.
As one of Labour’s safest seats on Tory-led Birmingham city council, the final candidate would be almost certain of victory at the June 4 by-election.
But when Mrs Cohen telephoned 57-year-old Mr Hussain for his support, she was astonished to be told that she was too ‘white and Jewish’ to be considered.
Mrs Cohen has now sent an official complaint to Labour Party general secretary Ray Collins and Birmingham city council accusing Mr Hussain of improper conduct.
Mr Hussain said yesterday: ‘I would not make those sort of comments. The allegations are not true.’
All indications are that this well-meaning woman is a whole-hearted supporter of Multiculturalism. Which means that she should have known the rules: political offices, like other spoils, are dealt out on a racial and religious basis. Whites and Jews are not part of the equation in her little corner of Multi-Land, so she had no business expecting things to be any different.
This incident is further evidence that the Socialist establishment had no idea what kind of monster it was creating a generation or two back when it invented the modern Multicultural state.
