Rowling is an expert in fascism, social inequality, and racism. She wrote an entire series of children’s books propagating the virtues of British classist elitism, racial supremacism, and fascistic totalitarianism. Have we forgotten that? The world of Harry Potter, as explained by Professor Sunny Singh of the London Metropolitan University, is an idealised fictionalisation of Rowling’s interior universe; a world of private schools, white privilege, plutocracy, and coercion – Britain.
We can’t expect J. K. Rowling and Andrew Neil to see this and call it out. They are, after all, partisan activists on the side of Britain. They may, and many in similar positions may also, have their reservations about how this patriotism is actually being expressed
