Shame is a strong feeling. It goes back to your inner ‘reptile brain’ and if effectively used against you it can be just as potent as the inner desire for sex, violence or food. It is one of the primal feelings of humans. The mass media has understood this very well and knowing that addressing right-wing voters as ‘racists’ and ‘bigots’ hasn’t worked and only increases the vote percentage for anti-immigration parties, populists, Christians or conservatives anywhere in the Western World in the past three years, they have now started adding ‘shaming’ to the mix.
A first example came from 71-year-old Channel 4 presenter Mr Jon Snow in the UK this week who reported on the Pro-Brexit rally in front of parliament and stated that he had ‘never seen so many white people in one place.’
Mr Snow commented on the march organized by pro-Brexit supporters, saying:
“We’ve just got these pictures in which were taken nearby. Police are now wearing riot gear.
“Police dogs are patrolling. The mood has changed. We cannot confirm whether any arrests have been made. It has been the most extraordinary day. A day which has seen… I’ve never seen so many white people in one place. It’s an extraordinary story… there are people everywhere, there are crowds everywhere.”
