Muggles and Migrants: The Hypocrisy of J. K. Rowling

Joanne “Jo” Rowling or J. K. Rowling as she is most commonly known is the author of the Harry Potter fantasy series, you know Harry Potter, right? The Harry Potter franchise has become the best-selling book series in history and has sold more than 400 million copies worldwide. Surely, you’ve read a copy?

There was also the movie series starring Daniel Radcliffe as our favourite spec wearing boy wizard.  J. K also has an estimated net worth of £1billion.  J. K by all accounts is also a self-righteous virtue signalling social justice warrior (as demonstrated by her infamous and highly volatile Twitter profile) and a vocal supporter of open borders and allowing refugee muggles into Europe, completely and utterly un-vetted no less.

In response to J. K’s ‘questionable’ views, a recent petition was started online which asks J.K. Rowling, who has 18 spare bedrooms in her mansions in Britain, not to mention the space available on her giant property to erect refugee shelters and grant no less than 18 refugees shelter in her mansions for at least 8 years.

To make this group of refugee’s a realistic representative of the situation in Europe, the petition, which as of writing has almost 18,000 supporters, close to its 25,000 goal also demands that the group consists of 14 men and 4 women, since over 75% of the millions of refugees are male.

That would mean the raping, white woman hating and the violent kind of refugee, the kind not even a magic wand could help defend you from.

Yet, despite the carnage of what open borders has created in Germany thanks to Merkel’s open door policy, J. K still demands that Europe has a duty to give every single one of these refugees from all over the Middle East, a home.

The refugee crisis will require 250,000 homes to be built every year in Britain alone. Helping refugees in Europe will cost 10 times as much as helping them in neighbouring countries would. But, these homes and housing accommodations are not built in nice areas where J. K resides, these refugees are housed in areas of depravity and poverty, where multiculturalism has turned British towns into unrecognisable foreign ghettos and where crime and unemployment are increasingly on the rise. Most of these refugees don’t even speak English, let alone Parseltongue (that’s Snake language in the Harry Potter series in case you didn’t know) and they do not respect or even like the western culture and its values that have gracefully even accepted them.

J. K should be able to relate to these dismal circumstances, she too was a struggling single mum on the lower end of the social class system, all while fighting her own dementors (another Harry Potter reference) and battling depression while calming benefits. It’s the same class of people who J. K herself was, that is affected directly by the influx of refugees.

Now, J. K is a best-selling author and with living in her gated mansion, it seems she has forgotten about the dark magic that lurks outside. It’s rather ironic that celebrities and public figures who live in gated estates should hate walls. It’s especially surprising that J. K herself should be so anti-borders since her literature is absolutely covered in the benefits of closed borders and walls.

Take platform 9¾ in the Harry Potter series for example. Why exactly did the Wizards build platform 9¾? Why did they have a magical brick wall to keep muggles out? Why was there even a wall to begin with? According to J. K and her logic, walls and borders should be demolished and everyone should be granted free entry, including muggles.

So, why was the magical brick wall elected? Was it because the wizarding community feared muggles would not understand witchcraft and wizardly and fear and hate that which is different? Or maybe because ordinary muggles fearing the strange and unusual powers of those magical folk, would inflect some kind of wizard and witch mass genocide, magic wands are powerful, but up against Gatling Machine Gun and Tanks etched with Rocket Launchers, no amount of charms and curses will save you.

But, all muggles are not prejudice against wizards and witches, I hear you say? Erm, did you meet the Dursley family?

But, it’s not just muggles who are to be feared; those within their very own wizardly community can also become extremists and turn to the dark side. Lord Voldemort and his followers are practically Islamic State Terrorists.

But, borders don’t work I hear you sigh? Well let’s not forgot about Hogwarts own magical barrier to keep the students and teachers safe against those that would do them harm. It seems vetting does have a purpose after all; even if you ‘think’ you know the person, you never quite know their true intentions. Who would have known that sweet little Tom Riddle would grow up into a radical extremist?

See? Apparently open borders and are not quite as appealing now? At least, according to J. K and her own fictional imagination. It seems the fantasy world is not quite as different to the real world, just without Wizards of course.

As of writing, J. K has still yet to respond or even acknowledge the Twitter petition, maybe we can send an Owl to deliver the message to her?
