In the UK the "racist" sticker is seldom valid. As an example UKIP lost almost all of it's support after the Referendum because people voted Brexit to leave the EU, not because they were racist. The UK electorate are not particularly racist, unlike the electorate in most of the rest of the EU: The UK is the least racist of EU countries on the basis of discrimination. On other measures, such as access to housing, many EU countries are 10 times or more worse than the UK. By UK standards the EU is indeed a racist state.See EU Racism is far worse than UK. and The Le Pen Salvini AllianceRationally this means that Remain voters support the UK being part of a racist state.

Rationally this means that Remain voters support the UK being part of a racist state. Or do they?
The EU Referendum was fought using the advice of Bell Pottinger style PR companies. (Lord Bell was a close adviser of Cameron). British PR companies have relied for half a century on the middle class desire to occupy the "Moral Highground" and British elections have been characterised by attempts to stick the "racist" sticker on the opposition.
The British "Moral Highground" approach does not work everywhere because it relies on pre-existing class hatred. When Bell Pottinger advised the use of the "racist" card in South Africa it backfired so badly that Bell Pottinger went out of business shortly afterwards. However, sticking a racist label on your opponents can still be an election winner in the UK.
The PR companies convinced Remain voters that it was they who were the anti-racists. Their media regularly showed old drunks in pubs who supported racism and Brexit but never, ever told the truth about the EU. As a result 40% of Remain voters live in the paradox of believing that they are the "anti-racists" when they are the racists! It is a crazy world when the modern media has such power.
So have Remain voters been conned? There is just one fly in the ointment: middle class racism. Many middle class people actually believe the world would be a better place if everyone were the same. They are terrified of diversity. They are so scared that they tell themselves lies such as believing that we are heading towards a peaceful, global government where all difference will be extinguished. They believe this lie despite the fact that 1,500 million Chinese do not see this as the future at all. Most middle class racists just believe that Putin and Xi Jinping will disappear. Dictator for life Xi Jinping is ignored and instead Trump is characterised as the truly dangerous tyrant because he also opposes global government despite the fact that Trump is a freely elected President of a country that is an ally.
Overall it is Remain who are the real racists and they should be firmly identified as morally corrupt. At least 60% of Remain supporters dream of a world where everyone wears jeans and T shirts and are all safely the same, they are true racists just like the people who want everyone in the UK to be the same.
It is now getting beyond a joke when Remain can try to overthrow the government whilst screaming "Stop the Coup" when coups are about the overthrow of governments. And cry "stop the xenophobic, racist Brexit" when it is the EU that is racist. When will they realise they are lying to themselves?
