Markle is less biracial than she is monomanical

PREPARATORY to the arrival of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s first baby, back in May 2019, the ABC ran a predictable leftist ‘report’ about how horrid white racists would inevitably do and say horrid white racist things when the child was born. Preemptive denunciation of imaginary political offences is standard fare at the ABC whose – ahem – business model is all about fanning the embers of hatred and then luxuriating in the moral superiority of being Outraged and Appalled. Here’s how that report began:

As a bi-racial, divorced, American actor, Meghan Markle revolutionised the British Royal family simply by marrying into it.

Many Royal watchers have welcomed the Duchess of Sussex as a breath of fresh air for a family which has mostly been dominated by white Anglican aristocrats.

Imagine that. In one of the primordial homes of white-skinned humans, the royal family has been dominated by white aristocrats – rather than, say, black chimney sweeps and Buddhist smithies. The reporters – Europe bureau chief Samantha Hawley and Rebecca Armitage – then spoke with several bi-racial Britons and the inevitable ‘expert’ from a university. They all agreed that Harry and Meghan’s baby would be not so much a bundle of joy as a bundle of BLAM! to the in-laws and the UK’s racist monsters.

So how’s that breath of fresh air going? Not too fresh now. What sort of a role model of biracial Cool Britannia abandons the Queen of England’s tender little great-grandson in Canada? That’s after she engineered Harry’s estrangement from his own brother and announced she won’t go on living with her husband’s family. Let’s be honest: Markle wanted her husband’s prestige, his genes and a share of his white position in the world. She got all three and repays him with the worst queen-bee behaviour of her adopted social/racial cohort in the US. But the basest cruelty is this: she’s cunning enough to know his parents’ famous split means he’ll do anything to acquiesce to her wishes and save the marriage. This just in: the Queen has summoned him to a crisis meeting on Monday. Meghan “will try to join via telephone.” Let’s hope MI6 sabotages the connection.

    Just wrote this at another site:

    You would think looking after a months old baby and forming family life with a relatively new husband and his family and feeling a sense of duty to be part of the Royal responsibilities (when able), would be a full life indeed.

    Meghan has everything and more. She wanted it and got it. Husband, baby, fame. At the same time she is manoeuvring to get back to her celebrity world of being a celebrity in her own right boosted by being Royal making her a unique brand for extra fame and fortune. Easy-peasy.

    ALEXANDRA SHULMAN: Unhappy, grumpy Harry attended a dinner party where there were rumblings that married life with Meghan was not going well – and something had to change

    Last autumn, Harry was guest of honour at a large private dinner party in London. The evening was intended to boost support for one of his favourite charities but the Prince was apparently in a foul mood. He was annoyed by other guests asking where his wife was and snapped back that she was at home with Archie – which was where he should be. Guests came away thinking that this was a young man who was unhappy and angry and didn’t mind letting everyone know.

    Shortly afterwards, the Sussexes decamped to North America to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland. They stayed there until last week when they returned to drop their bombshell announcement.

    For those who were at that dinner, it was startlingly obvious that something serious was up. Either Prince Harry was going to have to find a way to come to terms with his life, whatever that meant, or he was going to have to make a dramatic change.

  16. Politenessman

    MI6 or some other agency should make it very clear to HM that this conference will get taped by Markle for leverage.
    It’s time for the titles to be withdrawn and Harry and his bride to make it as commoners.
    I can’t see it going very well with them sponging off the titles and positions but not doing the job.

  17. Leigh Lowe

    Interesting that the Meghans of this world are fond of using the term “social licence” to attack large corporations who are in businesses they don’t like.
    She is about to find out that there is a yuuuge “social licence” or “social compact” for Monarchies operating in a democracy.
    Your subjects will let you live a life of privilege on the condition that you don’t publicly stick your beak into politics and you don’t become a self-indulgent piss-taker.

    They are crazy if they don’t insist that she take the call from a secure room at the High Commission.

    ABC Fact Check on the ABC: Markle is a woman, therefore she’s an actress. Not an “actor”. Unless she’s a woman who’s identifying as a man, which would be very ABC. They have a few on air, it would seem.

  21. Let’s be honest: Markle wanted her husband’s prestige, his genes and a share of his white position in the world.

    And his precious bodily fluids, don’t forget those.

    Mmyes, Mont.
    I’m sure she was open to falling in love with any red-headed white man who didn’t happen to be the most famous eligible prince in the world. She didn’t want a royal baby, or titles or prestige at all.

    Wallis Simpson was a beard?

    Was Wallis Simpson all woman? There’s been always been speculation about her sexual make-up. Now in a major reassessment her biographer uncovers new evidence

    Has Meaghan been researching?

    As Wallis confided afterwards in a letter to her Aunt Bessie: ‘Probably we will never hear or see any of them again.’

    Yet, just three years later, this homely, twice-married American had displaced Thelma and become the latest mistress of the blond and blue-eyed prince who was a pin-up for millions.

    Not only that, but he had fallen so violently and obsessively in love that he was prepared to give up the throne in order to marry her.

    Those in the know shook their heads in disbelief. How on earth had a plain woman, in her late 30s managed to bewitch the most eligible bachelor in the world? What sinister hold did she have over him? And what were her secrets?

    Naturally, the rumour mill went into overdrive, helped along by the spurned Thelma Furness. The 5ft 7in Prince, she blabbed, was known as ‘the little man’ for another reason — and he was sexually inadequate and prone to premature ejaculation.

    Gradually, the word spread: between the sheets, Wallis Simpson was in fact a femme fatale with legendary talents. She had, according to one speculative study, ‘the ability to make a matchstick feel like a cigar’.

    There was even rumoured to be a China dossier, which detailed the intimate techniques she’d perfected, variously called the Baltimore grip, Shanghai squeeze or China clinch.

    Indeed, the likelihood is that she knew about a variety of sexual techniques, including oral sex, which would not have been standard education for most British or American girls of the day.

    So has my family been for millennia, so stick that where the sun doesn’t shine, ABC!

    The ABC and other leftist racists would never, ever suggest in a million years that a black, Asian or brown family needs an infusion of white blood, or that they’re behind the times because a “whitey” hasn’t married into the family.

  33. Mother Lode

    I would be very surprised if Markle didn’t phone in.

    Otherwise it will be the Queen, Charles and William arrayed against just Harry, whom I consider to be very much the junior partner. Without her with her hand up his back, to fortify his resolve, and to make strategic decisions according to the needs of a plan I think resides most in her head, what might he not say wrong?

    It is not often I comment on Cretins like yourself, but you are so far up yourself, that your arse will come out your mouth soon, then you can crawl away to the depths of the Septic Shit Pit where you, and your obvious Mate Numbers, live.

  40. Dr Faustus

    I am wondering what they are selling. If they don’t keep their titles, who are they and who would listen to what they say…

    Two things:

    Their own personal selves;
    The cachet of the British Monarchy.

    Pretty sure they realise their own personal prestige has a rather short half-life. Hence the concept that they return from time to time to collaborate with the Firm for a few gigs – and thus top up the ’Royal’ credentials.

    Goodness knows what this is supposed to be attached to. Anything from formal wear to Pop-Tarts, I guess – with enough ‘good works’ thrown in to save face and persuade the press that there’s nothing juicy to paparazz over.

    Or possibly not fully thought out.

  41. Roger

    At the same time she is manoeuvring to get back to her celebrity world of being a celebrity in her own right boosted by being Royal …

    The problem is that royals aren’t meant to profit from being a royal in that manner.

    No doubt this is one of the items on the agenda for the upcoming meeting.

  42. Harry might well be in synch with Megan and/or calling the plays. At 12 years, his mother was killed. As he grew older, he probably became aware that late Mum had been deceived by his father, and indeed by other senior royals, as to his father’s lack of sincerity. He also was exposed to constant media talk about Diana was a slut, and noted how the royals failed to defend her.

    All this may have led him to think badly about his family and that he owed them nothing and wanted out. On George’s birth, he said he was happy that he (Harry) had dropped a place in the line of succession. Lately, the heavy promotion of bro William and family would have made plain his junior status and perhaps even he knew of the history of Geo 6’s younger brothers.

    So, it is plausible that he wanted out. Megan offered an opportunity of a woman well out of the aristo set and their hangers-on, and who had glamorous connections of her own, and life in North America.

    He might have known of the risk of losing his title and income, but considered that the public would still consider him worthy of attention.

  54. I am in part interested in the constitutional position. On the one hand, Edward 8 was made a Duke and Wallis a Duchess, notwithstanding his playing footsies with Hitler and both of them creating a real crisis of authority. On the other, it is said that Margaret would have been busted down to commoner without income had she married Townsend. Not much clear precedent to work with.

    In this case, there is little Archie to think of. If he has a royal title, would he be busted too? A lot of head-scratching here, and Harry’s position may notbe as weak as some imagine.

    Let me slightly enhance previous statement

    You are a Supercilious Condescending Little Shit, crawl back into your Septic Tank Shithole with your Numbers Alter Ego– the ABC is looking for an Erudite Toilet Shit Cleaner at its Ultimo Headquarters, where with your Lofty Intelligence, you can demonstrate your ample/superior knowledge of Toilet Shit Cleaning, and you will fit in well in their environment.

  61. Mmyes, Mont.
    I’m sure she was open to falling in love with any red-headed white man who didn’t happen to be the most famous eligible prince in the world. She didn’t want a royal baby, or titles or prestige at all.

    By that standard it would be impossible for any rich man to find love, because every woman would be assumed be to a gold digger. That is, if you hate women and never trust their motivations.

  62. The weird thing about most of these Tory analyses of why they think a black woman is a bitch – and when it comes down to it, that is the sum total of the analysis going on here – is that they assume that the woman is the only agent here, and that Harry was merely a helpless victim of the evil succubus rather than an enthusiastic participant in Megxit. It’s rather peculiar that the whole argument rests on an important member of the royal family being a beta poonce.

  63. Nighthawk the Elder

    The biracial angle is an interesting one, if you ignore the claims about Queen Charlotte (wife if George III) and her supposed African heritage. Still lots of debate about the veracity of the claim and the two camps still exist, so it’s a story that hasn’t gone away. On top of that, the current Royal family not made any real attempts to hose it down either. They might even think it advantageous.

    So perhaps the usually cultural aware ABC were unaware of this perspective, or, perhaps they were banking on the premise too many Aussies are ignorant to even know this claim even exists and by their omission from the story, could pursue the racism angle without challenge.

  64. jupes

    is that they assume that the woman is the only agent here, and that Harry was merely a helpless victim of the evil succubus rather than an enthusiastic participant in Megxit.

    Not really. Harry wasn’t a left wing nutbag until he met the succubus, so it is entirely reasonable to assume she converted him. Meghan was a known lefty idiot before the wedding, but she was the one expected to change not him i.e. if you don’t want to be a princess, don’t marry a prince.

    It’s rather peculiar that the whole argument rests on an important member of the royal family being a beta poonce.

    There is no other way to see it.

    Probably. But as Archie (named after one of her dogs, FFS) is about squillionth in line to the throne it’s no biggie.

    They always play the race card.

    As the Royal scandal rumbles on, so too the metrollectual discourse that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were right to flee Brexit Britain, a land of lascivious institutional bigotry and mildewed racial imperialism. This is proving an irresistible hypothesis, not only in the unburstable London bubble, but on the pathologically self-absorbed shores of East Coast America too.

    Not least at the headquarters of The New York Times, a newspaper that has delighted in running colour pieces over the last three-and-a-half years on the UK’s allegedly surging hate crimes and Leaver nostalgia for the “lost patrimony” of casual English racism.

    So the newspaper’s opinion piece, by British commentator Afua Hirsch, headlined, “Black Britons Know Why Meghan Markle Wants Out”, is as unsurprising as it is troubling. In it, Ms Hirsch paints a picture to her American readers of a slyly prejudiced press and a brazenly bigoted political apparatus.

    She cites press references to the Duchess’s “exotic” DNA and stories that allegedly make subliminal links between her and the “particularly racialised forms of crime”, terrorism and gang-related activity. Apart from the fact that only a truly mangled logic could interpret “exotic” DNA as a genuine slur, the idea that journalists have consistently catered to the lowest common denominator with subliminally racist copy is nonsensical.

    They are crazy if they don’t insist that she take the call from a secure room at the High Commission.
    Otherwise she will have a room full of lawyers and PR types taping and leaking within 10 minutes.

    Indeed. Excellent point. Surely they can’t be serious about allowing her to participate on a party line.
    FMD.

    This is a test for Charles to see if he is ready to take the throne.

    His Excalibur if you will.

    I usually don’t bother reading about the monarchy but this episode is beyond distasteful. Markle did have a privileged background even if she behaves as trailer trash and is even more privileged now and still behaving like trailer trash. Even the screech sheet Daily Mail has a rather good article that states the obvious. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7876719/PATRICK-JEPHSON-Palace-tough-Harry-Meghan-strip-titles.html

    The use of public office to make private wealth is called corruption, and the Queen expects members of her family to abide by the rules of ethical standards in public life.

    So the Sussexes should really welcome the opportunity to renounce their titles and thus remove temptation from unscrupulous foreign hustlers, angling to exploit their former Royal status.

    It’s not a question of vengeance or punishment, it’s just reality.

    Hear, hear.

    Hey everyone. White Supremacy keeps getting mentioned. Could someone tell me how they got superior? I’m curious.

    I am behind on all the news but this from Delingpole is funny

    Princess Yoko has split up the royal band.

    From the Beatles to Spinal Tap it’s an all-too-familiar scenario: pushy new girlfriend arrives on the scene with ludicrous, fancy ideas about how to improve the band’s image; rest of band objects violently to the meddling arriviste; band splits due to ‘creative differences.’

    This is what has now happened to Britain’s Royal Family.

    Playing the Yoko role is former Suits actress Meghan Markle — aka Princess Pushy; aka the Duchess of Sussex.

    Playing the Lennon role is former bad boy heartthrob Afghanistan vet helicopter pilot turned bleeding heart, henpecked pantywaist Prince Harry.

    Playing the rest of the Beatles are the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince William, Kate and all the other royals quite understandably concerned that if this nonsense carries on for much longer it could be the end of everything.

    Obviously, in this particular tiff, the majority of British people are very much Team Beatles rather than Team John ‘n’ Yoko. This is partly because most of us support our Royal Family, a bastion of traditional values and a unifying force in times of national celebration and crisis. Mainly, though, it’s because we can’t stand Princess Pushy.

    As I may have hinted in my last piece on the subject – Princess Pushy Go Home! – Meghan Markle is a dangerously and unnecessarily divisive figure.

    We don’t mind that she is an actress: the Royal Family has accommodated plenty of those in its time from Charles II’s mistress Nell Gwynne onwards.

    And we’re certainly not bothered that she is ‘black’. No one even noticed Meghan was of mixed-race heritage until she and her supporters kept banging on about it, as though she were the first ‘person of colour’ the extremely cosmopolitan and well-travelled Royal Family had ever met.

    Rather, it’s that ever since attaching herself to Prince Harry she has tried to push the Royal Family and, by example, the whole country in a direction that the vast majority of us find utterly repellant.

    Meghan’s ideological role model is Woke Hollywood: the kind of hypocritical, spoilt, identity-politics-obsessed, whiny, needy, thin-skinned, crass, cry-bullying, virtue-signalling cesspit that Ricky Gervais so deservedly mocked at the Golden Globes.

    She could have kept her woke politics to herself – that would have been the sensible thing, especially in the early days of her marriage, so as to allow the British people to get used to her. This is the usual quid pro quo when you marry into the Royal firm: in return for your newly elevated social status and your freebies (like Meghan’s multi-million-pound grace and favour cottage on the Queen’s estate in Windsor) you accept that you have certain duties, one of which is not to come across like an entitled gold digger.

    BiL sent yesterday’s Leak cartoon to his American friends. Apparently it is racist.

    Although Harry was an obvious target, given his fractured childhood, the cold reality to me is that Meghan Markle has sociopath tendencies. Separate the person from everyone else in the family circle, demand that what you want, you get, no questions asked, control who has access to the target, create a situation that alienates the target from any person who might offer a helping hand, and dictate what goes. More pull provided by a child physically removed from the original home, so the sociopath has even more leverage over the target. Seen it all before.

    If the Sussex’s will only move to LA after Trump leaves office that should remove any hope of them representing the Queen as Governor in Canada. And why would they have the Obamas as advisors and take a house of a Clinton associate for a holiday. No wonder the Canadians are up in arms re the security.

    Yep. I’d wager that most men have either been subject to it (to a greater or lesser extent) or have seen it occur with (former) mates.
