They make a big splash over something which is basically irrelevant, go on TV and talk about it, introduce legislation if necessary, generally create a big old fuss. I refer of course to the French and their ludicrously miniscule “Burkini ban”
I’ve only ever once in my travels through the Med seen a woman wearing one. It was in a water park and she was thoroughly soaked like everyone else. I felt a little sorry for her. Whether it was some patriarchal figure who said she had to wear it (ludicrous on its own terms by the way), or whether she was a prisoner of her own idiot ideology swallowed whole, I do not know. But one thing was for sure, she was no threat.
Now there are good reasons for banning some of the looser Islamic clothing and some of the face coverings, I get that. Sometimes you need to show ID, and very loose clothing can hide a multitude of sins. But there really isn’t a problem with beachwear.
Politicians could do something effective like say halting immigration, beginning deportations, not legally recognising polygamy (sic), insist on English competence before citizenship, ending ‘faith’ schools, prosecuting child rapists without fear of being called racist or abolishing hate crime or hate speech laws. They could allow us the means of self-defence. Israel recognises an armed populace is essential for the safety of its citizens; we in the West allow ours to be tortured and killed.
They could reach the now obvious conclusion that radical Islam and its adherents hate us and their presence in the West is antithetical to our continued peaceful existence and civilisation.
But they don’t, or won’t and thus getting “tough on Burkinis”
Idiotic, counter-productive and a symbol of their own impotence.]]>
I prefer the latter myself.
Anyway, what next?
The President of Turkey has a history of encouraging the Turkish immigrants to Germany to retain their national identity, not only encouraging them to refrain from integrating into their new home, but now reinforcing that identity with demonstrations and nationalist pro Erdogan rallies. Germany is objecting to this, but who cares what they think. What are they going to do? Show some backbone? Unlikely.
What’s happening in Germany is not going to be pretty, and does it tie in with President Erdogans ambitions? The man is not just an Islamic supremist, but a Turkish nationalist as well. Just as Iran is seeking to extend its influence west, re-establishing Persian influence across its ancient lands, Turkey is starting to look south, putting northern Syria, including the Kurdish lands, under its control.
As well as dominating the middle east Ottoman Turkey was for over half a thousand years a major power in Europe, and if he sees an opportunity Erdogan will make it one again.
I can’t see that it was an accident that a million young men have been dumped in Europe by Turkey. I am not going to argue that this was all preplanned in detail, but once the refugees became available Erdogan put them to use.
Turkey is demanding, as the price of halting the flow of refugees, that Turkish citizens have the right of free movement throughout the European Union, so thousands, tens of thousands, of Erdogan supporters and sympathisers could soon be on the move, settling with and bolstering already significant Turkish and Islamist communities.
In the very near future Germany and other parts of Europe will become violent places. As immigrant ethnic groups consolidate they will look for support elsewhere. Turkey will supply organisation, planning, agents provocateur, provocations and matériel under the table to Turkish and other Islamic communities, encouraging the violence and providing the wherewithal to carry it out, and then use the fact of the disturbances to exert a right to protect its nationals, and demand an influence in European countries (Germanys) internal affairs. What could be more reasonable than Turkish soldiers donning blue berets and taking responsibility for the security of Turkish and Islamic areas within Germany, once violence becomes endemic?
The idea that Turkey, as things stood five years ago, could re-establish itself as a European power would have been a joke, but Europe committing suicide provides it with the opportunity.]]>
Another day, another vote. It’s beginning to feel like Switzerland…well perhaps not quite. The merits or otherwise of Owen Smith I couldn’t say, but voting for dearest Darling Owen will not split the party and cast this irrelevant bunch of middle aged Trots into the everlasting darkness of political oblivion.
Given that Comrade Jezza has already wreaked havoc on Labour during the 18-months of his leadership thus far, chances for further mayhem are high. This will be especially true if he succeeds in his attempt to force all sitting MP’s to go through re-selection as part of the process for determining which of the party’s MP’s will be squeezed into the more slimline Houses of Parliament in 2020 when the number of seats is reduced from the current 650 to 600.
For those whose memories are not so ancient, the idea of incumbent MP’s being subject to re-selection prior to each election was a Bennite policy that was rejected back in the 1980′s. It’s application now has only one purpose, which is to purge the moderate Blairites from the parliamentary party and replace them with those who are loyal to Comrade Jezza.
For those who imagine that this whole farrago can’t get any worse for Labour, watch this space, because the re-election of Comrade Jezza will unleash a tide of revenge over the parliamentary party which may well see a split before the end of the year, in which case they will be both up in court seeking ownership of the Labour Party name and more importantly the party machinery and war chest for the next election.
Watching Labour tear itself apart is something which I have dreamed about for more than a decade. We live in interesting times.
Hillary on the other hand, won’t fully release her medical records and this is interesting.
It surprises me that the hurricane of corruption blowing around the ghastly Clintons seems to have left Hillary undamaged in the eyes of many. I find this staggering. How could anyone possibly consider voting for a liar who left men to die in Banghazi. And knowingly lied about it. As well as the small matter of breaching national security with the e-mail server and lying about that, and claiming she landed at an airport one time under sniper fire (another lie), and any number of other ghastly goings on.
But it maybe all this is too ephemeral. You need to spend a few minutes thinking about this to grasp the significance of the e-mail server. Low information, low IQ voters may find this too hard to understand.
So maybe the Republicans should start questioning her health. Twitter has made a lot of this, even though the first time I saw it on the MSM, it was a piece saying the whole thing was made up, (interesting that they feel the need to ‘debunk’ when they never covered it – the power of social media). So let’s look at the claims:
1. She’s been falling down a lot. People in their sixties, by and large don’t fall that much, this tends to be a problem for those in their seventies and eighties. We know in 2012 she suffered a transverse sinus thrombosis. I read that people who have to wear prism glasses are often the ones who have cognitive impairment after falls. She wears prism glasses.
2. There is the suggestion she has Parkinson’s disease. This would explain Huma Adebin’s January 2013 e-mail when she told an aide that Hillary was often confused and needed hand-holding on her daily schedule.
3. Then there’s the fact she’s not had a press conference since early December. Maybe she just feels she’s a shoe-in and press conferences can only hurt her now? But seriously not talking to the press when you are running for President?
4. Physically she has stools to sit on everywhere she goes and is often propped up with cushions. Again, could just be she doesn’t want to stand around, but it’s odd. And she seems to be sleeping a lot. It could be a weird schedule of course but I’ve seen some pictures where minders are simply holding her up when she speaks. This is not good.
5. Then there are some very odd videos doing the rounds on youtube where she seems to be acting very oddly. There is one where she just seems to freeze and some kind of minder comes on stage and says “just keep talking” Watch the video, judge for yourself. Also, the minders seem to carry around lots of odd medical paraphernalia.
6. Lastly, just take a look at her physical appearance. She doesn’t look like a well woman. I know she’s old and it’s a little unfair to expect a svelte figure from a woman her age, (this probably explains all the trouser suits). More seriously however, take a look at her face, she just looks really ill.
But here’s the bottom line, the Clinton campaign know this is hurting them. If there was nothing to hide, they’d do an hour long press conference and have a three minute video of her jogging or working out.
We aren’t seeing that, just like we never saw Roosevelt walk. This is telling.]]>
“Black graduates earn on average 23.1% less than white ones” reported the Beeboids somewhat breathlessly.
Isn’t this proof of inequality?
Well no, obviously not. I read the source material and there didn’t seem to be any info on the type of degrees black graduates got compared to other grads. So if they all have identical degrees from identical universities and passed at identical rates, that’s fine. It’s eliminating variable parameters which any statistician will tell you, is very important of you want to make meaningful comparisons.
But given that’s not clear, would we be shocked if graduates with lower second class degrees from Slough Polytechnic in gender studies were paid less than those with double firsts in computer science from Cambridge? This could just possibly explain the difference. I simply cannot believe any employer these days thinks to himself “Hmmm…. A Negro eh? Let’s pay them 76.9% of the while salaries”
The report also claimed that “Black people in England are more than three times more likely to be a victim of homicide than those who are white” which is probably true but it doesn’t say the race of the perpetrators of the crimes. If they were also black, it is hard to know how this could be racial discrimination.
The report also said “New targets to improve opportunities and outcomes for ethnic minority communities should be introduced” Opportunities, fine, no problem – Outcomes? Outcomes? Are you kidding me? Put me in a class with 25 Singaporean teenagers and I will likely be the 26th most successful mathematician. Who would you want calculating the bearing capacity of a new bridge, the no 1 Singaporean or me who got the job as the token white guy?
This is destructive, race-baiting garbage which actually harms the people it purports to help.]]>
USA-USSR display, Los Angeles, 1988.
So the question then becomes, who shall we elect. If you were eligible to vote, or if you are, who would you vote for? None of the candidates fill me with much hope, but let’s have a jaunt through the options:
Trump – I can’t quite see why so many Libertarians have fallen in lock-step behind this guy. Sure he fucks with the media and PC culture and he’s not Hillary, but half the economic stuff seems demented, tariff barriers?
Clinton – I would vote for Saddam Hussein before this evil lying bitch and it simply baffles me why anyone falls for her race-baiting, money from Saudis, lying, lying, lying shit. Then there is the question of her health. I’ve not followed this closely, but is she ill?
Johnson – Supposedly a libertarian but hardly one I’d recognise
Stein – Green lunatic, nuff said
5th party candidate – pick your own
So who amongst this lot, if anyone, would you vote for and who do you expect to win?
I know the polls favour Clinton but I can’t take ‘em seriously anymore and the propaganda and hate in this election seems worse than anything I’ve yet seen. I just wonder if there are enough shy Trump voters lying to pollsters for him to do it?]]>
There is rarely if ever any coverage of the huge number of black “youths” being killed by other black youths. I saw 2016 figures from Chicago recently and of the over 2,000 gun-shot victims in the city, seven were shot by police. If the 350+ homicides, none were shot by police. You might reasonably conclude this is the bigger story. That is unless you just wanted to hawk the white racism angle.
You might also want to address the absolutely epidemic levels of black on white crime eloquently highlighted in the book “Don’t make the black kids angry” by Colin Flaherty. Mr Flaherty absolutely demolishes the myth of black victimisation and shows how they are in fact, the aggressor not the peaceful victim.
Now whether this reporting is just lazy, repetitive journalism at its worst or deliberately seeing one thing and calling it something else is not clear. Perhaps there is some kind of leftie journalistic pressure to peddle the narrative. But one thing is for sure, the scenes we’ve seen on television do not resemble a protest. Call me pedantic, but I’d define a protest as people with placards assembling to hear speeches with a clear outcome in mind. For example, legitimate protestors might say “We do not trust Milwaukee PD, instead we’d like to have the justice department investigate” Fine.
However arson, violence, looting, robbery, shooting at police, none of these things can be fairly called a protest. A more accurate description maybe opportunistic, atavistic crime. The “protestors” are simply seizing any excuse to commit larceny.
The reporting continues to stoke the fake racial narrative, the ever reliable BBC tell us “In 2014, police shot dead an unarmed black man, Dontre Hamilton, in Milwaukee, leading to protests in the city. Prosecutors chose not to charge the officer responsible”
“Chose” this suggests they casually thought “Pfft, we’re kinda busy” In fact there would have been a detailed review of the evidence, and had there been any chance of a conviction, the officer would have been thrown to the wolves. He was in fact, exonerated, shown to have acted properly. Not that you’d get that from the coverage.
Khalif Rainey, a Milwaukee’s city councillor, said people were “tired of living under this oppression” He added “Now this is a warning cry…Where do we go from here? Where do we go as a community from here?”
Hmm…. Well I’ve never struggled under the burden of slavery, but then neither has he or anyone else alive today in the West but I’d suggest the following.
Don’t steal cars, don’t steal guns, don’t flee from the police, and do drop the gun when a police officer is pointing his at you. Maybe also stop blaming white racism for everything, take responsibility, get an education, when you see black crime call it out rather than offer excuses. Oh and of you want to have kids, marry the woman in question. One of the very worst things you can do to a child is not be married to its mother.
Oh and in case you missed it, the officer who shot Mr Smith was African-American and the whole incident was captured on his body cam. Perhaps the protestors will volunteer to rebuild the stores they burned if its shown the shot was legitimate?]]>
