One of the sad resultants of being "nationalistically inclined" is the lack of trust that I now have when it comes to charities of all stripes.
It is not all that long ago when I used to loathe people who did not contribute to charities. Now, I am the one who does not really give to any.
The only exceptions I still have are; giving whatever loose change (up to a couple of pound) for the Royal British Legion in November for a poppy (or as they tend to say now, "The Legion").......and the 'forced' charity I am giving through government grants and in foreign aid programmes via my taxes. I am stupid enough to still be in a National Lottery syndicate at work too.
Even then, when it comes to buying a poppy, although I still like to pay some kind of homage to the dead of this nation for their sacrifice and trauma (despite my unease about the first and second word wars, the resultant from it, the case for it etc), I am getting reluctant to keep on doing this when it is increasingly the case that all conflicts we seem to have been involved with since the Falklands have continued to have been spurious, neo-conservative and in the interests of others, etc.
It is getting like the old adage of "loathe the sin, love the sinner", where I would like to see my own people "done right by" and am thankful for their courage etc - but annoyed at the escapades they find themselves embroiled in and brainwashed into carrying out. Primarily though, I think of my grandfathers and the men and women of this country who made it what it was and who gave themselves, so they thought, to protect it.
When it comes to general charity, at an early age I was imbibed with the sense of doing good deeds for charity. This was to the usual point where I did things many children do......such as collecting for charities as part of my Sunday School youth, bringing tins (and such) to school for thanksgiving harvests, doing the whole comic relief thing and children in need thing, plus various others which came along through the years.
I remember things at my secondary school, such as a missionary giving a "special talk" - somebody who had been helping 'poor Africans' in Tanzania. We schoolchildren then helped raise more money for Africa as a result.
I would not say I was ever some kind of charity giving guru. I did not bust a gut, but I subbed in my pocket money, did a few odd jobs to raise a bit of extra pocket money, contributed tins and packets of food, put money in various buckets for comic relief (buying the various red noses over the years), non-uniform day, and that kind of thing.
I remember thinking of the people who did not give anything as being "mean", "hateful" and "selfish". I hated them. "How can you not afford a little something for the starving babies in Africa", I thought. Once again, youthful liberalism made me put emotion before logic and understanding. I knew nothing of the world or how it worked.
Now, through what I have learnt about the world and the negative impact of such charities, such as how it makes (and has made) many problems worse, how demographics are going to end up, how various charities are nothing more than communist front organisations serving a globalist agenda, how charities are often working to undermine my own country and my own people.........it has made me one of those people I always used to hate as a child.
Now that I see ourselves in this global game, this national survival game, this self survival game of my race and my people, my tune has changed towards charities -even the ones which are supposedly British or "British themed" like Children In Need.
They now make it clear on the TV broadcasts that the money raised cannot be diverted to be used abroad and that it is all for use in the United Kingdom. It almost sounds patriotic doesn't it, tapping into the public who are fed up with our own poor and needy being sidelined and who subscribe to the 'charity begins at home' ethos .......but, quite honestly, do people really know where it is going, even in this country?
I know it makes me very hard hearted - but I have become determined to cease helping the funding of our own demise as a people in this kind of way.
When, or if, we see a reversal in our national decline, I may well contribute to things once again. Until that point, I am going to remain sceptical, distrusting and - as the opposition would no doubt say - "hateful" and "bigoted".
If those are the labels which must be applied in order for me to try and resist our replacement as a people here in Britain and Europe, then so be it. I can live with myself. I have a clean conscience. We have been one of the most altruistic races on the planet and given much more to the world than we have ever received back.
If I was going to give to charity, I would do it on a local basis or towards something specific that I know for a fact is legitimate and beneficial to my own people in some way.
Much of the need for charity in this country is - in my opinion -somewhat self inflicted anyway, especially at the hands of mass migration and liberal social policies.
We have seen increased poverty in society (via immigration, blacks, Asians), lack of stable parenthood (often black men leaving their children and increased divorce rates), drug abuse getting rife (at the hands of black and Asian drug pushers), myriads of "ethnic" themed charities for "integration" and "refugee awareness" programmes. None of which we ever really needed before c.1960.
So, when Children In Need rocks up every year - I am feeling less than charitable these days. It is all "feel good stuff" - but I cannot even bring myself to watch it on the television. The smug-fest gets irritating.
Yes, the bulk of it probably does go to some very needy children - probably truly British children who deserve help and support - but unfortunately, much of it does not and I cannot bear being made "a chump" out of via financing programmes and groups which are not in my peoples or my nations interests. I guess I am living proof of Robert Putnam's observations on 'social capital'.
I spotted elsewhere that somebody posted up a link to the Children in Need funding site, so I decided to read through the linked PDF documents which noted where the money was being allocated.
I have taken the time and trouble of wading through the majority of them (not all of them) to pick out some of the most obvious examples of what I am talking about.
If you were pro-British and under an illusion that your charity money was going to little British children who had fallen on hard times etc, then you are probably in for a wake up call when I list some of the places it has gone to.
Whilst some of them may be 'deserving cases' for bleeding hearts and some tragic situations, unfortunately the rights of my people to survive in their own homeland have to come first. If we are to help them at all, it should be in their own homeland - not mine. Especially when our acts of 'kindness' are slowly turning this country into a basket case and hell hole.
For the sake of "charity", I have tried not to include ones for genuine disabilities and the disabled, even though some of those charities are obviously specifically targeted at their own ethnic people's advancement.

(Given many unidentifiable charities, this is the lowest estimate)
Liberals claim to be good hearted people, but as can be seen from the list above, if it was not for their own ideological policies there would be no need for the majority - if not all - of the above charities and so called "struggling" communities in Britain that need "integrating" etc.
Perhaps it is not that far fetched to suggest that they get a kick out of creating a problem and chaos and throwing money and effort into helping people because it makes them feel better about their white, liberal, western guilt.
Forgive me when I do not chip in my hard earned money for dance lessons for Afghani refugees, canoe/boat trips for Somalians, cultural well-being and art programmes for Eritreans, health and fitness programmes for Afro-Caribbeans, "drumming workshops" for community integration; or extra school and skill bases for all manners of interlopers which are pushing my own people into the history books of ancient civilisation.
Also, forgive me when I suggest that the emotional needs of Lesbians, Gay, Transgender and "sexually confusued" others are not exactly charity emergencies either.
When there are some "English health and fitness, 'self esteem' and cultural well-being" programmes specifically for the "ethnic English community", or "extra education programmes for the white indigenous working classes".......give me a call or shake a bucket at me. I suspect that will be in around 20 years time when it is we English folk who will be the minority group.
