The founder and former leader of the Brexit Party has blamed Muslims for Islamophobia in the Conservative Party.
Yes, you read that correctly.
Catherine Blaiklock was commenting on the BBC report this morning that over 20 Conservative Party members have been suspended from the party for Islamophobia.
In response, Blaiklock tweeted: “If we had not imported millions of migrants from totally different cultures and religions, none of this would be an issue.”
It is difficult to imagine how anyone could have such a twisted view of the world that they blame victims for the racism they receive.
And this isn’t the first race row that Blaiklock has been embroiled in. Last week, we revealed racist tweets from Blaiklock suggesting that Africans are rapists. A couple of months ago she also claimed that immigrants were receiving illegal operations in Slough General hospital. Slough General hospital doesn’t exist.
Nigel Farage took over as leader of the Brexit Party when the Guardian exposed a series of anti-Islam tweets on Blaiklock’s feed.
Given her abhorrent views, it’s shocking that she was allowed to have a central role in Farage’s party in the first place.
