Noticing an unfortunate trend in hardcore unionist twitter recently. So I thought I’d take it as a lesson in nationalism.
For those who haven’t seen it on twitter, #ordinaryscots4indy included loads of people who weren’t born in Scotland but consider themselves Scottish. That’s English-Scots, Irish-Scots, American-Scots, German-Scots, Polish-Scots etc etc.
This really pissed off unionists who began frothing at the mouth in anger. Because you see that’s what they hate, #ordinaryscots4indy was not some display of anti-English xenophobia. It was awesome and welcoming and brilliant to see. This is civic nationalism and it’s based off of culture.
They have since taken to harassing those using the hashtag saying they will never be Scottish. Because they are blood and soil nationalists.
So there you have it folks, side by side. We’re not anti-English or anti-immigrant or anything. It’s the British nationalists that are the problem.
Of course, call them out on it and they’ll to ridiculous and absurd lengths to justify as evidenced in the bottom picture where he results to a childish response and uses vile racial slur.
I spent the day switching from this to extremely sketchy chibis I need done in a couple of days and it was honestly SO confusing. *laughs* Who else de-stresses from an art piece by switching to other art pieces? :P
