Suella Braverman

Suella Braverman, who has been recently sacked as UK’s Home Secretary by Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, exemplifies an extreme right wing brand of politics which can be seen in many countries nowadays.
The central theme of such right wing political leaders is that one’s country is in danger because it is being flooded with immigrants, or what Indian Home Minister Amit Shah called ‘deemak’ or termites ( which he called immigrants from Bangladesh living for decades in the state of Assam ).
This was the theme of much of Donald Trump’s rhetoric about USA being flooded by illegal immigrants from Mexico, because of which a wall was needed to be built at the USA-Mexico border to stop the mass inflow.
Similar is the cry of French right wing leader Marie Le Pen, and of leaders in many other European countries, who proclaim that the country is being swamped by Muslim immigrants.
 In Pakistan the  Afghan refugees who had been living there with their families for 4 decades or more to escape from the horrors of the Soviet, and thereafter the American, invasion, and the guerilla war against the invaders, have now been declared ‘deemaks’ by the Pakistan government, and ordered to leave.
This brand of politics is often very popular with the local people, as it plays on the sentiment of fear and feeling of danger that the demographics of the country would be drastically changed by the inpouring and invasion of aliens.
Suella Braverman has been ranting on this theme for long, inside the House of Commons, and outside it, again and again, and has called it an ‘existential challenge’ and a ‘hurricane’
She said that Britain’s patience has run out, that the south coast of England is being invaded by criminal gangs, and that the immigration has gone out of control
All this reminds one of Hitler’s diatribe against the Jews whom he blamed for all the ills in Germany
Another favourite topic of hers is that pro-Palestine demonstrators are anti-semitic ‘hate marchers’, though most of such people are not against Jews, but only support the Palestinians who were driven out of their homes in the 1948 ‘Nakba’, and are against the growing Israeli settlements in the West Bank displacing Palestinian Arabs, and calling for immediate stopping of the war in Gaza.
She even accused the London police of having pro-Palestinian bias and double standards
And now she has in her letter of resignation launched a blistering attack on the Prime Minister, calling his act of sacking her a betrayal, and accusing him of lying
Suella Braverman obviously has the ambition of becoming UK’s Prime Minister, and believes the majority of the British people agree with her, and will support her in achieving her political goal. One shudders to think what would happen if this Hitler type rabble rouser succeeds
