Roman Polanski - Paedophile

Some other sites have posted eloquently on the details of the case , see here and here .

The facts of the case are clear .

The man is a child molester .

He fled from justice and has now been apprehended to face that justice .

It doesn't matter whether it was last week or 30 years ago .

Hang him !

Mocking The Afflicted

I try not to .

However it is difficult to keep a straight face having read this soul-baring post on Dave's Part -
LISTENING to a group of young people shouting ‘Labour, Labour, Labour; out, out, out’ while marching past Brighton’s conference centre yesterday took me back to when I was the same sort of age. We had a similar chant, you see. But back in the 1980s, the slogan was aimed at Maggie.

Instantly recognisable was the intensity of the hate on display, which was clearly of the kind that will last a lifetime. My twentysomething animosity to the Conservatives has been enough to secure decades of commitment to the far left, and I don’t doubt that a whole layer of students, young workers and a million or so NEETs in 2009 are in pretty much the same frame of mind about the party of which I am a member.

I’m assuming, if only from what I overhear apolitical workmates in a similar age bracket say, that this mood is generalised and not confined to the radical elements that each successive decade inevitably throws up.

And frankly, New Labour might just as well have striven actively to cultivate the contempt of the young, as evidenced by everything imaginable from tuition fees to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and the parliamentary expenses scandal.

Not trying to cause a big sensation. Just talking ‘bout their generation. If I still looked good in tight jeans and didn’t have to comb my hair in unusual directions to hide the bald spots, I’m sure I’d feel the same way too.

Any defence, justification or spurious apologetics for Labour I can offer – from the national minimum wage to my inimitable old git reminiscences of just how nasty Conservative government truly can be - are going to have little impact on people who were schoolkids 12 years ago.

For instance, I remember telling a keen teenage fan of house music how the Conservatives once tried to ban ‘repetitive beats’. He clearly found the idea amusing, but I doubt that the revelation is going to change the way he votes.

In recent posts I have detailed how New Labour has lost the north, and pointed to analysis that suggests it will be wiped out in Wales. For good measure, let me highlight this Evening Standard poll, which indicates that 17 of its 44 seats in London are set to go.

To lose regions such as this – the historic cradles of Labourism – is of course calamitous, but not necessarily irreversible. Lose an entire age group, on the other hand, and you can kiss government goodbye until another one comes of age. See you in a quarter of a century.

All of my politically-aware life I have been bombarded by the whining , self-righteous bleatings of the Ben Elton generation .

While as a teenager I was interested in our prospects in winning the Cold War and defeating the IRA and the Argies , these muppets , more or less openly , supported our country's enemies and covered their embarrassment with highly personalised attacks on our repeatedly elected leader - Margaret Thatcher .

Now perhaps they are ready to shut up .

Daniel Hannan On The Irish Referendum

Daniel Hannan's latest blog post on the non-dabate and the slippery lies of Euro Federasts . He puts it much better than I ever could , so have a read .

The worst part for me , in all of these Euro-debates on the BBC , is the blatant lies , distortions and smears which the Beeb allows these characters to get away with . The constant interuptions which the interviewer permits clearly show what side of the dyke the Corporation is on .

More disturbing still , is the casual way MacMillan-Scott spouts these agreed lies , sophistries and smears of The Project against Hannan personally and the Euro-sceptics in general . How could someone so transparently anti-Conservative and so embedded in that Project become leader of the British Conservative group in the EU parliament ?

Cameron did well to get rid of him .

The British Disease

Another excellent article in The Wall Street Journal by Theodore Dalrymple .
Whenever I am in Amsterdam, I stay in a small, elegant and well-run hotel. The excellent and obliging staff are all Dutch.

Whenever I am in London, I stay at a small, elegant and well-run hotel. The excellent and obliging staff are all foreign—which is just as well, for if they were English the hotel would not be well-run for long. When the English try to run a good hotel, they combine pomposity with slovenliness.

Perhaps this would not be so serious a matter if the British economy were not a so-called service economy. It has been such ever since Margaret Thatcher solved our chronic industrial relations problem by the simple expedient of getting rid of industry. This certainly worked, and perhaps was inevitable in the circumstances, but it was necessary to find some other way of making our way in the world. This we have not done.

Incompetence and incapacity are everywhere. Despite ever-rising local taxes, town and city councils are either unable or unwilling to clear the streets of litter, with the result that Britain is by far the dirtiest country in Europe.

Although we spend four times as much on education per head as in 1950, the illiteracy rate has not gone down. I used to try to plumb the depths (or shallows) of youthful British ignorance by asking my patients a few simple questions. Fifty percent responded to the question "What is arithmetic?" by answering "What is arithmetic?" It is not that they were good at doing something that they could not name: When I asked one young man, not mentally deficient, to multiply three by four, he replied "We didn't get that far."

This is the result of 11 years of state-funded compulsory education, or rather attendance at school, at a cost of between $100,000 and $200,000. The government's response has been to raise the school-leaving age to 18, thus making total ignorance even more expensive.

This is at the bottom rung of society, but incompetence starts at the very top. It is doubtful whether any major country has had a more incompetent leader than Gordon Brown for many years. The product of a pleasure-hating Scottish Presbyterian tradition, he behaves as if taxation were a moral good in itself, regardless of the uses to which it is put; he is widely believed to have taken lessons in how to smile, though he has not been an apt pupil, for he now makes disconcertingly odd grimaces at inappropriate moments. He is the only leader known to me who combines dourness with frivolity.

Early in his disastrous career in government he sold the country's gold reserves at a derisory price, against all advice, driving the price lower by the manner in which he arranged the sale. A convenience-store owner couldn't, and almost certainly wouldn't, have done worse.

After 12 years of ceaseless Brownian motion, British public finances have gone from being comparatively healthy to being catastrophically bad. In order to expand vastly the public sector in which he is a true believer, Mr. Brown has raised taxes by stealth, undertaken government obligations that appear nowhere in the accounts and that will weigh on future generations, and eased credit to encourage asset inflation and give people the illusion of prosperity. For the duration of his time in government, Britain has been like a consumptive patient, with an excess of bogus well-being shortly before expiry. If the world is an opera stage, Britain has been playing Violetta or Mimi in the last act.

What, then, of the opposition? Surely it has managed to hit a few of the easy targets with which the government has so thoughtfully supplied it?

No words of mine can adequately convey the contempt in which the Conservatives are now, rightly, held by almost everyone. I do not recall meeting anyone who thinks that David Cameron, their leader, is anything other than a careerist in the mold of Tony Blair. The most that anyone allows himself to hope is that, beneath the thin veneer of opportunism, there beats a heart of oak.

But the auguries are not good: Not only was Mr. Cameron's only pre-political job in public relations, hardly a school for intellectual and moral probity, but he has subscribed to every fashionable policy nostrum from environmentalism to large, indeed profligate, government expenditure. Not truth, but the latest poll, has guided him—at a time when only truth will serve. However, he will be truly representative as prime minister. Like his country, he is quite without substance.

It is unthinkable that such distilled truth would be published or broadcast by the meretricious British news media .

Jimmy Carter - Racist !!!

I only remember Jimmy Carter as an American President so awful that he made our then PM , Jim Callaghan , look like a towering giant on the world stage . His weakness in office has been compounded by his later efforts to undermine the West and prop up tyranny and oppression throughout the world .

It came as no surprise , then , when it was Carter who accused the critics of his understudy , the Obamessiah , of being motivated by nothing but eevill raacism !

It turns out , however , that Jimmy has more than a little form in this area himself , as pointed out by National Review Online -

The facts, drawn from A Voting Rights Odyssey by Laughlin McDonald, director of the ACLU's Voting Project, are astonishing.

When Carter returned to Plains, Georgia, to become a peanut farmer after serving in the Navy, he became a member of the Sumter County School Board, which did not implement the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision handed down by the Supreme Court. Instead, the board continued to segregate school children on the streets of Carter's hometown. .

.Carter's board tried to stop the construction of a new "Elementary Negro School" in 1956. Local white citizens had complained that the school would be "too close" to a white school. As a result, "the children, both colored and white, would have to travel the same streets and roads in order to reach their respective schools." The prospect of black and white children commingling on the streets on their way to school was apparently so horrible to Carter that he requested that the state school board stop construction of the black school until a new site could be found. The state board turned down Carter's request because of "the staggering cost." Carter and the rest of the Sumter County School Board then reassured parents at a meeting on October 5, 1956, that the board "would do everything in its power to minimize simultaneous traffic between white and colored students in route to and from school."

Jimmy Carter is , of course , a member of the Progressive consensus and can in no way be accused of racism .

Enoch Powell , on the other hand was a conservative and by definition a racist who must be condemned as such at every opportunity . Contrast his words on the events at Hola Camp in 1959 with the deeds of Carter in that decade (from Wikipedia)

On 27 July 1959 Powell gave his speech on Hola Camp of Kenya, where eleven Mau Mau were killed after refusing work in the camp. Powell noted that some MPs had described the eleven as "sub-human" but Powell responded by saying:
"In general, I would say that it is a fearful doctrine, which must recoil upon the heads of those who pronounce it, to stand in judgment on a fellow human being and to say, 'Because he was such-and-such, therefore the consequences which would otherwise flow from his death shall not flow'."
Powell also disagreed with the notion that because it was in Africa then different methods were acceptable:

Nor can we ourselves pick and choose where and in what parts of the world we shall use this or that kind of standard. We cannot say, 'We will have African standards in Africa, Asian standards in Asia and perhaps British standards here at home'. We have not that choice to make. We must be consistent with ourselves everywhere. All Government, all influence of man upon man, rests upon opinion. What we can do in Africa, where we still govern and where we no longer govern, depends upon the opinion which is entertained of the way in which this country acts and the way in which Englishmen act. We cannot, we dare not, in Africa of all places, fall below our own highest standards in the acceptance of responsibility.

Denis Healey, MP from 1952 to 1992, later said this speech was "the greatest parliamentary speech I ever heard... it had all the moral passion and rhetorical force of Demosthenes". The Daily Telegraph report of the speech said that "as Mr Powell sat down, he put his hand across his eyes. His emotion was justified, for he had made a great and sincere speech"

This was one of a series of principled political stances which Powell took during his long and patriotic career , but because once he drew attention to the inadvisability of mass-immigration to this country , then he is derided and vilified down the years by the Left .

Carter , an actual racist who refused to allow black and white schoolchildren to walk on the same streets , is a champion of the left , praised for his liberal views .

Is it any wonder I'm a conservative ?

Die Fahne hoch!

This video appeared some time ago on Mr.Eugenides , but we should be grateful to Calling England for reminding us of its true awfulness and that of the spirit behind it .

All together now -
Die Fahne hoch! Die Reihen fest geschlossen!
SA marschiert mit mutig-festem Schritt.
Kam'raden, die Rotfront und Reaktion erschossen,
Marschier'n im Geist in uns'ren Reihen mit.

If there is a British response to the unpleasant , emotional , totalitarian chants of our enemies it is this -

The European Movement

Insomnia has , again , forced me to read the papers at half three in the morning . Usually I start with the Telegraph , then The Times and The Scotsman , before having a laugh at The Guardian (why didn't they stay in Manchester ? Our country could have been such a better place ).

I was drawn to this letter , headlined "Telling Expulsion of Moderate Tory MEP" on their front page , attacking the expulsion of Edward McMillan-Scott MEP from the Conservative Party .

Have a read . It's a great laugh .

It manages to smear the Conservative Party (except avid Europhiles) as supporters of appeasement and the Nazis . Daniel Hannan is anti-NHS and Enoch Powell is his hero (oh , the horror !).
We were appalled that Edward McMillan-Scott MEP was expelled from the Conservative party (Editorial, 19 September) for standing successfully against the Polish extremist Michal Kaminski for the vice-presidency of the European parliament.

David Cameron's MEPs recently left the moderate group of the European People's party, which now consists of all the EU centre-right parties except the Conservatives. They have instead associated themselves with a group opposed by many for its extremist views.

Has Cameron forgotten that Harold Macmillan, the Tory prime minister who first tried to take Britain into Europe, resigned the whip when the leadership insisted on appeasing Hitler? He was not expelled. He also campaigned against the official Tory candidate Quintin Hogg in favour of an independent, Dr AL Lindsay, on an anti-appeasement ticket at a byelection. Sir Edward Heath, who as Tory PM took Britain into Europe, also supported Lindsay. Neither Macmillan nor Heath were expelled for their opposition to extremism.

McMillan-Scott did not oppose a Conservative candidate. Kaminski is well-known for his extreme policies. Yet McMillan-Scott was expelled. Daniel Hannan was not expelled for his anti-NHS speech in the US, nor for saying that Enoch Powell was his political hero. So Cameron would appear to be much more prepared to work with alleged anti-semites such as Kaminski and Europhobes such as Hannan.

It is high time that moderates woke up to the truth. Cameron has departed from the moderate pro-European history of the Conservative party.

Maureen Tomison

Chair, East Kent European Movement

The discredited smears against Kaminski and Hannan , coupled with a grossly distorted and emotionally fraught view of British history as seen through the europhile prism .

Boiler-plate rubbish . Intellectually stunted and dishonest , it deserves no consideration . The reason , no doubt , it was sent to The Guardian and not The Telegraph . It exists merely to reinforce the prejudices of an elitist europhile clique .

More interesting is the writer and the organisation she represents .

Maureen Tomison is a Labour Party activist who stood against Michael Howard , the then leader of the Conservative Party , in his Folkestone and Hythe constituency at the last election in 2005 . She also stood in the Kent County Council elections in 2009 for the Folkestone South ward , coming fourth behind the Conservatives , LibDems and UKIP .

Her organisation ?

The European Movement .

If we're going to throw about comparisons with the 30's and 40's , then , I would suggest , an organisation with this sinister title is much more worthy of criticism than the Conservative and Unionist Party .

Even their pompous name , grandiose and simplistic at once , totalitarian chic in other words , seems the very embodiment of the long-decade from 1933 to 1945 .

New Order . Europeans must unite to drive out the Jewish-Masonic Conspiracy and confront the Bolshevist Menace !

Or am I being ungenerous ? Too bad .

Read their website if you are in doubt , or their Wikipedia entry -
The European Movement international is a lobbying association that coordinates the efforts of associations and national councils desiring to work towards the construction of a federal Europe

Who pays for this lot and how are their leaders appointed ? Have you ever seen them advertising for new members ? Do they have well sign-posted offices like other political organisations ? If it is non-party as it states , why is it attacking one political party in the press ?

And why is one of its Vice Presidents Rt Hon Kenneth Clarke, QC, MP ?

Does he support this attack on the Conservative Party made in the name of this organisation in which he holds high office ?

A further trawl through the list of "patrons" on their main and regional websites could provide Call Me Dave with the basis for a major pre-election cull .

Labour Deconstructed

James Delingpole is not the sort of chap I would like to have a pint or two with . Posh name conjours up images of Eton , Harrow and fagging . Preternaturally young and effeminate , he looks as if he could fit right into Princess Antonia's NuLabour cabal . Worse , his Wikipedia biography informs us that he has written a novel entitled "One Up The Bum And No Harm Done" based on his pre-journalistic career as a rent boy .

This time , however , it is the Blair-Brown junta which gets it up the sh****r in this fine article .
The deadly attack gerbils of the liberal-left have had a go at Dan Hannan.

The Daily Mirror, NuLav’s comically useless online propaganda outlet Labour List, and a sweet-looking boy named James Mcintyre who writes for the New Statesman, have all seized excitedly on some thoughtful, unexceptionable remarks Dan made about Obama’s “exotic” background.

Here’s what Dan said in his blog:

“Barack Obama has an exotic background, and it would be odd if some people weren’t unsettled by it. During the campaign, he made a virtue of his unusual upbringing. He was at once from the middle of the country (Kansas) and from its remotest edge (Hawaii). He was both black and white. He was a Protestant brought up among Muslims. He seemed to have family on every continent. Like St Paul, he made a virtue of being all things to all men.”

“On one level, the strategy worked brilliantly. But it could hardly fail to leave a chunk of people feeling that Obama wasn’t exactly a regular guy.”

And here, roughly, is how Mcintyre and his chums chose to translate it:

“My name is Dan Hannan. I wear a tall, pointy white hat with eyeholes cut into it. Our Enoch was right. Send ‘em all back to where they came from. No, wait, better than that: string ‘em all up. And if you think I’m the only fellow in the Tory party who thinks this way you’ve got another think coming. We’re racists, the lot of us. And this my friends is why you should not vote Conservative at the next election but vote instead for the supremely competent and utterly sane Gordon Brown.”

Now I have at least two main objections to this.

First, though it’s true that Dan Hannan holds culpable, deeply objectionable, utterly wrongheaded views about Obama, they have nothing to do with the man’s race or exoticism. They’re to do with the fact - as he brazenly admits - that he likes and admires the guy and supported his presidential candidacy.

But what I loathe and detest far more is what it tells us about New Labour and what they have done to the level political debate. As pretty much anyone with even half a brain cell now realises, Britain is almost irredeemably b***ered after 12 years under Blair and Brown. In this week’s Spectator, Trevor Kavanagh racks his brain and finally comes up with “peace” in Northern Ireland and the minimum wage as examples of two of New Labour’s achievements. Personally, I wouldn’t even give them those. They have been a total and unmitigated disaster from beginning to end.

How, though, did they get away with it for so long? Largely, I’d argue, by manipulating the media - and by extension - the voters more cleverly than the Tories did. New Labour would lie, distort, tweak, smear, exaggerate, spin, announce, re-announce, re-re-announce or anything else that was necessary to ensure that they came across as the party that could do useful things and which cared, while the Tories were the party of reaction, snobbery, racism and cuts.

This feeble and desperate attempt to smear Hannan and, by association, Cameron’s Tories is merely a continuation of the same old methods they’ve been using for the last twelve years. Two or three years ago, it might just have worked. Today, now that we’ve all wised up to their methods, it just comes across as wearisomely predictable and a bit sad - the death throes of a party which knows it’s a busted flush and knows that in the total absence of things to say in its own favour its last remaining hope is to try to slag the opposition.

I understand this. You understand it. But here’s the part that makes me worried and angry: I’m not sure that Cameron’s Tories yet do.

Even now, far too much of their policy-decision-making appears to be based not so much on doing the right thing as on avoiding trouble. The 50p upper rate tax. The ring-fencing of spending on the NHS. These are positions not of a party of principle, but a party whose inner circle reads silly articles like the ones above, and STILL actually takes them seriously.

I'm still not buying him a pint , though .

Moderate Opinion Of The Day

A comment on Daniel Hannan's blog , where someone has just compared Obama's anti-military parsimony to that of our own Great Leader -

“He sounds like GORDON BROWN”

I never thought I could say this about our psycopathic, lying, cowardly, halitosis-ridden, nation destroyer with the kiddie-fiddler’s grin, but this Obama cancer even makes BRuin look acceptable - LOOKS I said.

And you can't say fairer than that .

Why Aren't All The Farmers Dead ?

An interesting question from Rod Liddle regarding the hysteria over petting farms .

It also brings into question how the majority of the population see the countryside . We townies seem to think every fluffy lamb on the hillside is a carrier of deadly contagion , to such an extent that no one must come into contact with it .

Hysteria ? Certainly .

The Corruption of History (Part 1)

Several commentators have noted the recent survey by University of London's Institute of Education which found that three-quarters of History Teachers regarded the teaching of patriotism as in some way abhorrent .

I am tempted to follow the line of a certain political party (the not very nice one whose site you won't want to visit from the work's computer) displayed here .
Basically , they say that the "research" was done in Inner London schools where the population is not itself British .

"In effect this means that white British schoolchildren are already a minority in Britain’s capital city and unless the immigration invasion is checked and reversed, the vast majority of the next generation of people living in London will be Third World in origin.

Thus it is no surprise to find that teachers in those schools — even if they are white — are cautious about promoting Britishness, as they are in classrooms full of non-British people."

Nothing to worry about as far as the BNP is concerned , as it continues ...
"Any person who lives outside of the major inner cities — in areas with schools which still have British majority population makeup — can confirm that the vast majority of teachers are perfectly at ease with displaying pride in Britain."

I'm not so sure , as I will comment upon later .

Melanie Phillips takes a more pessimistic , and possibly hysterical , line . She hits the nail on the head with this passage , though .
"Perverse though this may seem, it is not actually a surprise. It is merely the latest stage in the deconstruction of education that has been going on for the past three decades - and at the heart of which lies the teaching of history.
Back in the Eighties and Nineties, history teaching was at the centre of a tremendous battle over British national identity.

In one camp were those who believed that it meant transmitting to pupils the story of this nation and its institutions; in the other camp were those who said that to do so was racist.
That was because they subscribed to the view that Britain was itself intrinsically racist: that it had a history of colonial exploitation and that a new society had to be created that would treat the culture of every incomer as equal to the culture of the indigenous British.
More fundamentally even than that, they believed the very idea of a nation with a distinct identity at all was racist.

According to their reasoning, the nation led to nationalism, and nationalism led to prejudice and war. So destroying national identity would eradicate all such horrors and create the brotherhood of man on earth."

She's wrong on only one point here , that history teaching is at the heart of this deconstruction . The assault on literacy and shared social values were at the heart of this anti-educational movement , history is merely a peripheral theatre in this war .

By the time a pupil starts secondary school he will already have been subjected to a debased level of literary education and insipid , leftist morality from which he is unlikely to recover without great personal effort and outstanding character .

Only then will he start the low-level historical study he will receive - 50 minutes per week for 2 years .

Topics so sweeping as "The Egyptians" , "The Romans" or "The Middle Ages" will be marched through in six-week blocks , providing no depth and little in the way of historical understanding .

There will be frequent interventions about politically correct mores , throughout this debased process , together with much cultural relativism .

The real struggle begins in certificate examinations , however .

In Scotland (the only country where I have taught modern History as a school subject) the introduction of Standard Grade exams in the late 1980's provided an immense opportunity for leftist meddling .

Gone was the study of British or European History as events , characters and narrative ; in came history as unbalanced and disembodied "sources" , concentration on "living conditions" and empathy .

One paper concentrated on such "living conditions" and the workers' struggle for equality (guided by the wise and beneficent Party) , while the second told how wicked the Nazis were and how no one should emulate anything they ever thought or did (or for the more adventurous teacher how wonderful the Soviet Union was and how it was a shining beacon for mankind).

In an instant pupils' experience of History had changed from the Great Reform Act to how many rooms a Glasgow tenement flat had in the 1920's , plus how the Party had improved this and so many other things .

This is a corruption not so much of content , though the content was indeed corrupted , but of the mental and critical faculties required to comprehend History .

Thus , those who have finished their full compulsory education at 16 years of age , will , at best , have received a highly blinkered view of the past , entirely circumscribed by Marxist approaches to thought .

This is a great leap , I know , but lacking that Marxist indoctrination , I lack the vocabulary to describe the process . Marxist Dialectic , perhaps ?

The result is the same , whichever way one describes it .

Pupils become either A) sheep or B) mentally equipped only to deal with the world in general , and history in particular , in Marxist terms .

Here endeth the first lesson (on pre-6th Form History) .

More to follow on Higher , A-level and University .

Internet Socialism

The Guardian is running a comment piece today by one Joe Moran catchily entitled "Today's cultish interactivity is a poor substitute for a proper public sphere".

The gist of the article appears to be that blogging is rubbish , although gratifying to the mere individual who writes it and his handful of readers .

Our Joe , however , has a solution which will deliver us from the mediocrity and individualism of this disorganised interchange of ideas .
"A proper public sphere is collectively owned and more than the sum total of lots of individual interactions."

Mmm . State control .
Or , rather the control of people like Joe Moran and his Guardian-reading/writing/editing pals . Or "Party Comrades" as they're sometimes known .

That'll be good .

Ideas will be expressed more sparingly and the quality will thus rise because of the benign editorial control of our masters .

Great .

Of course , like every good Fabian , he has to dress this sinister totalitarianism up in cuddly guise .
No more threatening a public expression than the Shipping Forecast will be his model for future internet activity .
"The shipping forecast is broadcast to millions of people who, since they are not on ships, are not its intended audience. For them it has become a comforting, collective ritual which simply forms part of what Ralph Waldo Emerson called the "cumulative intelligence of the universe". It does not invite us to email or text our feedback; it does not care what any of us think as individuals. And so it belongs to us all."

Yes ! Free us from our individualistic chains !
Let us become the passive recipients of our masters' distilled , Party-approved wisdom !

Thank You , Comrade Stalin !

Liberal Herrenvolk ?

I don't care if you love the BNP or hate it . I don't care if you think I support them , or if I hate them .

In a rational world it shouldn't matter . Debate and reason should matter .

But we do not live in a rational world . Thanks to Marxism we live in a world tainted by evil attempts to change reality by changing perception . The agenda of the Party is the only agenda . All else must be shouted down .

As we saw recently in the post below , this is the purpose of Political Correctness , as formulated by the Frankfurt School and espoused by their acolytes .

Through their doctrines of Critical Theory and Progressive Tolerance they have pushed non-ideological people (who would otherwise favour the status quo) into their mind-set , so that the agenda of Marxism has become the unthinking platitude of those who like to be thought of as "enlightened" , "liberal" or just "nice" .

It is through this mechanism , as much as through infiltration and subterfuge , that the assumptions of Marxism have permeated our civil , political and social spheres .

That is the only explanation I can think of for the following disgusting , totalitarian , anti-constitutional comment from District judge John Stobart regarding the BNP , in the membership leak trial yesterday ,

"What you put on the internet can never be taken from it, and while there may be some members in this organisation who do not deserve to be protected by the law, they should be able to expect that officers within the organisation will not abuse the information provided to them."

By what right does Mr. Stobart abrogate all the legal protections that British subjects have , from Magna Carta to the Bill of Rights onwards ?

Is it that this Marxist subversion of our society's values has created a new intellectual reality where , mirroring the provisions of the Nuremberg Laws , the opponents of the new order are Untermenschen , while the Party faithful are the Herrenvolk ?

I think we now know .

Islamic Projection

I wonder what Muslim men think when they see a Western woman shamelessly exposing her face , or even her hair ? (Oh . The horror !)

Now we know .


Are You An Islamophobe ?

For most of us , I trust , the answer will already be clear . However , should there be any ambiguity , try this test over at pyjamasmedia .

Do you favor equal rights and treatment of women and men?

Do you oppose stoning of women accused of adultery?

Do you favor mandatory education of girls everywhere?

Do you oppose slavery and child prostitution?
