Amritsar - Virtue Signalling Archbishop's Grovelling Apology................Dan T






Here we go again. Just months after then Prime Minister, Theresa May, did so in Parliament yet another prominent British figure feels the need to apologise for the Amritsar Massacre perpetrated by a rogue British general during the British Raj in 1919.

Not content with laying a wreath and whispering a silent prayer in remembrance, the head of the world Anglican Church, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, turned virtue signalling to an embarrassing display of undignified groveling. (See here)

Prostrating himself face down before the memorial plinth was over the top even for an agenda driven Archbishop who is more concerned with things temporal than things spiritual such as saving souls and preparing them for eternity.

One is bound to ask what is it about that terrible event in Amritsar a century ago that compels politicians to keep apologising for it when British colonial history is littered with similar atrocities, particularly in Africa?

The answer is simple; being the cynical, duplicitous people that they are, politicians recognise that the Indian diaspora in Great Britain is a significant voting block that can swing an election whereas the African diaspora is not.
