Time to Wake the Saxons

It seems that Jesse Benn's wish came true.  Two young White people were murdered on live television by an angry Black man on the morning of August 26.  They didn't attack anyone, unlike Michael Brown or Trayvon Martin.  They were simply killed for being White.  According to the media and liberal commenters, White racism and guns are to blame.  The narrative being spun puts me in mind of this poem:

by Rudyard Kipling

It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late,
With long arrears to make good,
When the Saxon began to hate.

They were not easily moved,
They were icy -- willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the Saxon began to hate.

Their voices were even and low.
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not preached to the crowd.
It was not taught by the state.
No man spoke it aloud
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not suddenly bred.
It will not swiftly abate.
Through the chilled years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the Saxon began to hate.
