Yesterday's column was one that has been seen many times before: Britain is crap, and it's all the fault of Labour and the immigrants. In 'Labour is guilty of a sickening act of national betrayal' he writes:
Many parts of our towns and cities no longer resemble Britain.
All sense of social cohesion has been lost. We no longer have a common culture, shared heritage or even universal language.
'No longer resemble Britain'? He doesn't say explicitly that there are too many people around who aren't white, but he might as well.
Later, he makes a direct link between immigration and violent crime:
the consequences of mass immigration: the violent crime; overcrowded transport and overstretched hospitals and schools.
It's really quite depressing to read these views getting such a platform. But it's hardly a surprise - he's being repeating the same things for years.
At the start of February, when calling Gordon Brown the worst PM in history, McKinstry said:
Our sense of national identity has been destroyed by the twin forces of mass immigration and multi-culturalism.
Hmm. Sounds familiar. He goes on to claim the Government is engaged in a:
desperate appeasement of militant Islam
although fails to produce much evidence for that. As usual.
In the column before that, 'We are betrayed by Labour's sick, so-called justice' he says:
the Government wilfully destroys our borders, appeases militant Islam, turns London into the global capital of jihad
Ah. That again. But London? More than, say, Afghanistan or Pakistan? Really?
The previous week, in an article about how he would save billions of public spending, he advocated abolishing the entire overseas aid budget as well as the Equalities and Human Rights Commission and its 'politically correct bullying'.
And, of course, the immigrants and Muslims got a kicking too:
It is particularly outrageous when the benefits go to grasping migrants who have made no contribution to our society, as highlighted by a string of recent cases where new arrivals have been given housing benefits worth more than £100,000 to live in luxurious houses in west london, far beyond the dreams of most Britons.
Why should we be required to support in our jails foreign criminals who should be de- ported, or give welfare hand- outs to Muslim extremists who want to blow us up? This abuse of the taxpayer has to end. Radical surgery of the state would be a gain, not a pain.
The lack of capital letters and other formatting errors, incidentally, mark all McKinstry's online articles - it's not clear why.
'It is time to stand up to this plague of violent crime', he raged on 18 January. Guess who's responsible for that, according to McKinstry:
Mass immigration has not only shattered social cohesion but also brought a vast influx of criminals into our society. According to police figures, one murder in every five is committed by a foreigner.
That figure is totally untrue, but just because it's not true, doesn't mean he won't keep mindlessly repeating it.
Then there was 'Immigrants squat in your house and you're powerless' on 14 January, in which he claimed:
large swathes of our country have been taken over by hordes of migrants who have made no contribution to our society yet still believe they are owed a living by the British public.
His two rants before that didn't mention immigration or Islam, but on 28 December normal service was resumed:
For Brown has wilfully put the British people at risk from terrorism by promoting the Islamification of our country, appeasing the radicals and encouraging the settlement here of over two million Muslims.
A 2009 Labour Force Survey put the number of Muslims in Britain at 2.4 million. As there were 1,591,000 at the time of the 2001 census, Brown hasn't encouraged - or even overseen - any such thing.
This blog had previously exposed the repetitive nature of McKinstry's columns - he refers to Labour as Marxists who loathe Britain repeatedly too - as well as their inaccuracies.
But the far more serious concern is that his rhetoric is so inflammatory. In his world, migrants are benefit-grasping, violent criminals who ruin Britain and are responsible for most of the problems in the country today. Muslims are all would-be terrorists who are constantly 'appeased' (a carefully chosen word given its historical context) by Government.
McKinstry never writes anything in praise of immigrants. Indeed, he never mentions immigrants at all unless it's to castigate them or blame them for some ill.
And who does that benefit? It certainly doesn't help that 'social cohesion' he claims to be so worried about.
His language often sounds much like the language of the BNP. So it's no surprise to find a thread with the title 'Fantastic article by Leo McKinstry' (about one of his efforts on immigration and the Government hating white people) on the Stormfront forum.
