    Y’all just always have to bring up the fact that Frank is a crab. He’s more than that if you’d look past his hard outer shell.

    I think we may be able to bring Frank back on our side if we just talk with him. He seems like a reasonable crab. The rest are lost causes.

    You missed Reed Smythe. Reed just wanted to send a message and didn’t count on there being other people being dumb enough to also want to send a message.

    You forgot Duncan. Used to have a job as a fish monger, like his pa and his grand ‘fore ‘im. Hates that immigrants put him out of business.

    I love the fact that it is a universal thing that people who complain the most about immigration are people who have immigrated to other countries.

    Here in Iceland, some of the most vocal anti-immigration people online are Icelanders that live in Norway, Sweden, Spain, etc. Sometimes they complain how many immigrants there are in the cities they have immigrated to.

    YOU ARE AN IMMIGRANT YOU FUCKING MORON! YOU AREN’T AGAINST IMMIGRANTS, YOU ARE AGAINST PEOPLE THAT ARE NOT WHITE! JUST SAY IT YOU PATHETIC, WEAK LOSER!

    The Barold character works even if he’s not rich. Huge amounts of people in NI think multiculturalism is ruining the country even though NI is like 98% white.

    A few weeks ago I might have agreed with the sentiment of this thread. But now after reading more about the issue, it’s really disheartening to see how much nuance has been taken out of the other side’s argument, and how people are content to simply mock these people into submission without allowing them to ever articulate their arguments. There are good arguments for being against the level of immigration that is happening in Europe, and no, they don’t all involve racism or xenophobia. I’d encourage people to read Douglass Murray’s [The Strange Death of Europe](https://smile.amazon.com/Strange-Death-Europe-Immigration-Identity-ebook/dp/B06XDV5R78/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1505354349&sr=8-1&keywords=the+strange+death+of+europe) to hear the other side of the argument. I am only a few chapters in and it’s nothing short of alarming the way public discourse has strayed from the underlying reality.

    We definitely have the American versions of these types of people as well, except I would probably swap Frank out for a crocodile.

    I understand this is political humor but one it’s underlying tenets seems to be the insinuation that if you support Brexit you are either racist, ignorant, or both.

    Since these are just fake people anyway and serve only to appeal politically to a certain group of people, I don’t think you’ll mind me deconstructing them a bit.

    Barold – Rich people are still people, and his vote didn’t count more than anyone else’s if we’re just talking about a referendum. If he’s rich then there’s a good chance he’s quite competent and knows why he’s voting the way he is. If you think multiculturalism doesn’t have its downsides, then I’m sure it’d be easy to persuade him.

    Nice – Your age and eventual death have nothing to do with your ability to think for yourself and form an opinion. If you want to bring age into the discussion, at least do it in a way that involves deteriorating cognitive ability seen in older folk. You can still care for your country and society at an old age.

    Gary – I doubt it’s just plain old immigration he’s worried about, but instead harmful people that don’t want to adapt to their new environment or even those looking to break the law. He wouldn’t think moving to Spain is a bad idea because he most likely wouldn’t cause problems there. He’s probably been to Spain or researched it a lot if he plans to move there.

    Linda – Ignorance is found in all parts of society and within all political affiliations. There’s plenty I don’t know about the world, and small things like Linda’s bit aren’t really a problem and can be cleared up quickly. I doubt there’s a Linda from England that thinks the Mediterranean is a country anyway. Ignorance of one aspect of life doesn’t necessarily mean it affects others.

    Brexitknight92 – People like to have their role models. Some people are pretty deep in their biases and these are usually the kind not to change their views, and I get that. But the part about him never touching a woman is just attacking him for something completely unrelated. He could be asexual, you know 🙂

    Frank the racist land crab – This is a crab and I assure you that he did not vote on the referendum.

    TL;DR This picture and others like it are not valuable political discourse. I get that this is the political humor sub, but I just didn’t find these poor arguments that funny.

    From what I’ve seen, rich people living in all white neighborhoods tend to be pro multiculturalism. It’s like a new fad to them. And they don’t have to worry about the darkies because that’s why they live in a gated community after all.

    Wanting greater control over immigration doesn’t make someone racist. There are often legitimate problems; for instance some areas of Britain are disproportionately impacted by immigration such as coastal towns.

    Furthermore, the immigration to the UK under the EU is overwhelmingly from fellow EU countries. This prevents us from employing from the common wealth.

    The cartoon is so patronising and the failure of the government (both under labor and the conservatives) to acknowledge immigration as a concern for many Brit was largely responsible for the vote out.

    i love that this sub has basically turned into liberals consoling and comforting one another over the massive losses they’ve sustained and will continue to sustain. if you legit think there’s going to be a “blue wave” midterm, you’re in for yet another disappointment.

    stupid shit like this is why you continue to push people to right-of-center and beyond. the elitism and snobbery, calling anyone who even slightly disagrees with you racist, islamophobic, white supremacist, etc- while implying they’re dumb, religious zealots- has ensured that you will continue to fail, election after election.

    thank you for your service.

    Why is giving legislative authority to unelected pencil pushers in Brussels in Britain’s best interest? Do you just hate your own country and want to be a state in a larger country? Do you hate democracy? Do you crave authority? Do you need daddy Juncker to tell you what to do? Stupid.
