Calling us names, just to get their own way.

About a week ago the Turkish president made the claim that if the EU rejected Turkey’s application for EU membership, it would just prove that we’re “Islamophobic”. There couldn’t possibly be any other reason for rejecting their application. It must surely be that reason, just because the Turkish president said so. The article can be read here.

Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, pictured lecturing EU leaders for hurting the feelings of Turkish citizens by not allowing them to invade our countries.

Of course anyone with any common sense should know this is completely absurd. Turkey isn’t even a European country. Sure, a tiny part of it is technically on the continent (I’m not going to deny that), but you may as well say that Britain is part of South America because of the Falklands if you’re going by that logic. If we allow one non European country into the EU, it sets a precedent for other non European countries to demand access and leech off the rest of us and of course whitey, being the castrated wimp that he is, probably would let them all in, for fear of looking intolerant or something.

Wow, clearly a country at the heartland of Europe.
Wow, clearly a country at the heartland of Europe.

However beyond geography, there are plenty of other more important reason why Turkey has no business “enriching” the EU with their presence.

  • Turkey has open borders with other Middle Eastern countries such as Syria, Iran, and Iraq. If we opened up our borders to Turkey, we’d be opening up our borders to those countries as well. Do we really want to make it that easy for ISIS types to get into Europe?
  • Turkey’s population (about 78 million) is larger than that of any EU country (apart from Germany at about 80 million). We can’t absorb that many new migrants at once. We just can’t.
  • Turkey (while better than most Islamic countries) still has a human rights record that isn’t up to EU standards. Unfair trials, lack of freedom for the press, lack of protection for minorities etc, are issues that have no place in the EU.
  • Culturally, they’re far too different from us. As I’ve stated before, multiculturalism just doesn’t work, unless the cultures are similar enough to overlap enough to make it work. Even though the EU is full of diverse cultures, we still share enough history and tradition to bind us all together. Whether it be the legacy of the Roman Empire, Christianity, the Middle ages, the Renaissance, the industrial revolution etc, there is a common bond that binds us. Turkey has none of that and from the time of the Ottoman Empire, right up until the present, it has always been an outsider.
Our ancestors spent the better part of a millennium trying to prevent these people from overrunning and enslaving us. Are we really going to be stupid enough to let them back in, just because they think we’re being mean and insensitive?

Of course none of these reasons matter to the Turkish president. It’s all just Islamophobia. This just proves an obvious reality. All these terms like Racist, Sexist, Homophobe, Islamophobe etc, are just being overused and abused by people who just want to silence all opposition to them and bully people into accepting what they want. Personally, I think they can go fuck themselves. If their only argument is to name-call those who disagree with them, then as far as I’m concerned, they’ve already lost. These words only have power if we let them have power. If someone tells me that I’m an Islamophobe because I oppose the obvious insanity of letting the Turks join the EU, my response to that is going to be “Yeah…and?”

White Genocide

Here is a 20 minute preview of an upcoming documentary regarding the ongoing genocide of white people around the world. I strongly suggest watching the whole thing all the way through and doing so with an open mind and not just responding the way we have been conditioned to think (ie. it’s just racist propaganda put out by low IQ psychos who hate people who look different). I know this is a touchy subject, but I wouldn’t be sharing this if I didn’t think it was important. I’d like to think that no matter how much brainwashing we have all been subjected to that ultimately, our survival instincts are still in tact and will tell us that what this video is discussing is very real.

I know when people see the term “Genocide” they naturally think of events like the Holocaust or Rwanda in 1994 (ie, large scale murders), and so won’t consider what’s happening to us a genocide. However, if we look at the UN definition of genocide, we see an entirely different story. Just to take a few examples.

Propaganda campaigns and fabrications about the targeted group used to justify acts against a targeted group by use of dominant, controlled media or “mirror politics”

The video deals with a few examples of this, but if I can add one of my own, we now have college courses on “The problem with Whiteness”. That’s a blatant example of the demonising of white people.

The destruction of or attacks on cultural and religious property and symbols of the targeted group that may be designed to annihilate the historic presence of the group or groups;

Often, people can’t even display their country’s flag in their own country, for fear of offending immigrants. Why these immigrants are in a country whose flag offends them is never explained. Of course Christianity, the dominant religion of the West for centuries has been severely undermined and those who still cling on to it, are generally ridiculed as being backwards in their beliefs.

Other practices designed to complete the exclusion of targeted group from social/political life.

So called “positive discrimination” which gives minorities unfair advantages in certain endeavours than the majority group.

The fact of the matter is, I don’t have any problems with other cultures or races. I just think we have as much right to preserve our own as anyone else does. I don’t think that’s unreasonable, and I would hope that others would see things the same way.

This summarises my fears perfectly.
I’m posting this one again because it’s a perfect representation of my fears. How are the Native Americans doing these days?

The Big Lie

Arguably the greatest propagandist of all time. He knew what he was talking about.

In my last post I discussed the ridiculous Guardian article that tried to claim that Cultural Marxism is nothing more than an insane conspiracy theory used by far right lunatics as an excuse to complain about every single thing that they hate. In that article, the author laid out genuine historical facts that anyone could confirm as being true just from 2 minutes on Google. Instead, the author tried to pass them off as being false. The question is, why would anyone be stupid enough to lie so blatantly and unashamedly? The reality is, it’s not stupid at all. It’s actually a very effective propaganda technique, one that Hitler himself was quite familiar with.

Ironically enough, he was telling the truth here.

Extract taken from Mein Kampf

All this was inspired by the principle – which is quite true in itself – that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying. These people know only too well how to use falsehood for the basest purposes. 

Essentially what he was saying is that telling a lie that is so completely ridiculous and unbelievable is much more effective than telling small lies, because of the way the mind of the average person works. We all lie once in a while and are used to being lied to, but generally speaking, these lies are small. However, small as they are, we still fear the consequences of being found out, either because we’ll be punished in some way, or we’ll lose face in front of others. Shame is a powerful deterrent.

Mainstream media can’t be trusted. Plain and simple.

The idea that anyone would have the audacity to distort reality so blatantly and unashamedly is a concept that most of us are unable to get our heads around because we project our own values onto others. So when people read The Guardian article and (assuming they bother to actually research the concepts it was discussing) and see that the information, so readily available contradicts what the article says, it becomes difficult for them to process. How could someone blatantly lie in a public forum like that? The only possible explanation that is acceptable is that perhaps he isn’t lying at all, and that all the contradictory information is wrong in some way. He must be better informed on the topic than all of us, hence why he’s so confident to say these things in the face of overwhelming amounts of information to the contrary. Therefore, we should agree with what he’s saying and ignore all the information that contradicts him, or else we’ll look stupid and be ridiculed as well.

Most people are too proud to admit they’ve been fooled. If they believe strongly in something no matter how wrong it turns out to be, convincing them to think otherwise will be a challenge.

And so, that’s how The Big Lie works. There’s plenty of other examples of it happening as we speak. If I can, I’d like to refer back to the Michael Brown protests as an obvious example. Despite the fact that all evidence suggests that the cop, Darren Wilson’s version of events is true (meaning, he shot Michael Brown in self defence), we still have people in the media claiming that it was a cold blooded racially motivated murder of a defenceless innocent black “child” by a white man, because their agenda is to stir shit up. People buy into it because it’s shoved down their throats constantly and they can’t comprehend the idea that such blatant lies are being told. As far as they’re concerned, surely, Darren Wilson wasn’t charged with murder because of his white privilege (another example of The Big Lie) and a system that favours whites over blacks. It couldn’t possibly be because he was innocent. No, that couldn’t be it.

Darren Wilson: The evil white supremacist, black child killer, who got away with murder because of institutionalised racism.~ The Media

Trust your instincts folks. If it feels like a big lie and all visible evidence suggests that it is a big lie, then don’t assume that it’s the truth, just because they’re confident enough to put it out there without feeling any shame.

Hiding the truth in plain sight.

“Not all followers of Islam are like ISIS. Anyone who thinks that is a politically incorrect racist”~ Cultural Marxists.

As anyone who has been a frequent reader of this blog will have noticed, a term that I have used time and time again is “Cultural Marxism”. It seems as if coincidentally enough, the term itself is becoming more and more well known. I’d put this down to the fact that like me, many other people are waking up to the obvious propaganda that the mainstream media are putting out, because they know damn well that what they’re being told doesn’t match up with what they’re actually experiencing in real life. So these people turn to alternative media sources for their information, they find alternative views that make more sense than what they were hearing before and in the process, they’re opened up to new concepts that they had never known about before, yet have experienced their whole life. Cultural Marxism is one such concept.

“All believers in Cultural Marxism are insane lunatics like Anders Breivik, without exception”~ The Same Cultural Marxists.

Seeing the writing on the wall and being perceptive enough to realise how damaging the internet is to their stranglehold on information supply, the mainstream media are doing what they do best. They are using their propaganda techniques to try and discredit these alternative views before they can convert anyone else. The latest example I can see comes from the gutter tier publication know as The Guardian. Lets just be blunt about it. We all rightly ridicule Fox News for their obviously biased reporting on matters. However, the likes of The Guardian is every bit as biased as Fox News, albeit on the opposite side of the political spectrum. Finding fair and balanced reporting on either is about as likely as finding a unicorn.

You both suck.
You both suck.

I came across a Guardian article today which tries to hide the truth about Cultural Marxism in plain sight for its readers. It gives a very biased definition of what it is and tries to make it all out to be an insane conspiracy theory that shouldn’t be taken seriously. Straight away it goes on the attack, using terms such as ” fantasy life of the contemporary right” as if anyone who believes in it is just a tinfoil hat wearing nutjob.

The average believer in Cultural Marxism according to The Guardian.
The average believer in Cultural Marxism according to The Guardian.

The  author then goes on to lay out actual historical facts and tries to dismiss them as all being part of this right-wing “fantasy” that he’s discussing. This is completely ridiculous. He’s literally saying the exact opposite of what is true even though a simple google search would prove him wrong. The existence of the Frankfurt School of critical theory is an historical fact. It’s historical fact that most of it’s leading members were Jews who were run out of Nazi Germany and fled to America. What is open to interpretation is how much influence they gained in America in the following decades, but it’s obvious to anyone who actually does read up on their history that from the 1960s onwards, a lot of people in America (the baby boomer/hippie generation) suddenly came around to the Frankfurt school way of thinking regarding race, gender, sex, religion etc. This is because these people were subjected to a propaganda campaign every bit as insidious as the likes of Khmer Rouge era Cambodia, Stalin era USSR, or North Korea today. Even looking at at the Wikipedia article for one of the names cited by The Guardian, Herbert Marceuse, we see this.

Celebrated as the “Father of the New Left“,[7] his best known works are Eros and Civilization (1955) and One-Dimensional Man(1964). His Marxist scholarship inspired many radical intellectuals and political activists in the 1960s and 1970s, both in the U.S. and internationally.

As long as these people got a good supply of sex and drugs, they could be convinced of anything. There was a term used to describe people like this. Useful Idiots.

The article tries to discredit the concept of Cultural Marxism by pointing out (quite truthfully, I’ll admit) that corporate capitalism (something which is very much opposed by classic Marxism) is still doing very well in the West. However, this doesn’t take into consideration the fact that some of the biggest supporters of Cultural Marxism are big corporations for reasons that should be obvious. Two of the biggest components of cultural Marxism are mass immigration and feminism, two things that are of to the benefit of big corporations. Both increase the number of potential workers in the system (mass immigration by allowing more people into the country, feminism by encouraging women to choose careers instead of following the traditional “wife and mother” role).

“Sure, I’m stressed out of my mind and my biological clock is ticking away, but at least I’m not being oppressed by the patriarchy. I wouldn’t trade it for a loving family life at all.”

The laws of supply and demand means that by increasing the number of potential workers, you in turn devalue what they offer (in this case, their labour) which drives down wages. It also increases the number of potential consumers of products and services. The result, higher profits for said corporations. This also means more competition for limited housing supply which pushes up the cost of getting a mortgage, which increases profits for the banking sector. It’s no coincidence that a single income family in the West 50 years ago was better capable of affording to support a family of 5 or 6 and pay a mortgage, than a dual income family of today at supporting a family of 4 and paying a mortgage today.

Anyway, at this point I’m getting a bit tired of writing. The article is there at the top and people can read it for themselves. I’d also suggest reading the comments on the story. Assuming The Guardian doesn’t end up deleting comments they disagree with (I’m not sure what their moderation policy is like) you’ll be able to see an interesting discussion with some people agreeing and some disagreeing with the article. I’d also suggest actually researching the names and institutions mentioned in the article, in order to learn more about them. In the age of the internet, being ignorant is simply a matter of laziness. Don’t be lazy, please discover the truth for yourselves.

The Guardian article cites this video for ridicule. I think it’s a damn good video personally.

Heroic teachers save us from 5 year old Nazis.

I am happy to report that in England, quick thinking teachers have managed to prevent a second holocaust from occurring, due to their proactive approach in dealing with racist school children, as can be read here.

Extracts from article

Summoned to a meeting at her seven-year-old son’s primary school, Hayley White was prepared for a quick chat about his behaviour.

But when she was told that Elliott had been at the centre of an ‘incident’ with another pupil that was so serious she would have to sign an official form admitting he was racist, she refused to believe what she was hearing.

‘When I arrived at the school and asked Elliott what had happened, he became extremely upset,’ said Ms White, who is a 32-year-old NHS worker. ‘He kept saying to me: “I was just asking a question. I didn’t mean it to be nasty”.’

It turned out that while in the playground Elliott had approached a four-year-old boy and asked him whether he was ‘brown because he was from Africa’.

As we all know, this is how the original holocaust started. A curious seven year old Hitler once asked a black schoolmate if his non-white skin pigmentation meant that he was from Africa and this put him on the path to committing genocide 45 years later. Luckily this child’s teacher knew their history and was able to foresee that this child would clearly grow up to be the next Hitler, if he wasn’t stopped now.

The father of the black child in question was so upset that his son was almost the victim of genocide, that he cried for 6 whole hours until a white cop showed up and shot him for absolutely no reason.

‘I was told I would have to sign a form acknowledging my son had made a racist remark, which would be submitted to the local education authority for further investigation,’ she said. ‘I refused to sign it, and I told the teacher that in no way did I agree the comment was racist. My son is inquisitive. He always likes to ask questions, but that doesn’t make him a racist.’

This mother is clearly a Nazi too and needs to be stopped before she also attempts a holocaust.

The white child’s mother and some of her friends in their free time.

But the reality is that across the country each year, thousands of children as young or even younger than Elliott are being branded racists, homophobes and bigots over minor school squabbles, or even innocent questions.

There are no innocent questions unless they are pre-approved by our politically correct overlords.

Exactly. In an educational environment, we obviously can’t be encouraging children to think. That’s insanity.

An obsession with equality and diversity also appeared to be at the root of a news story this week about Ofsted inspectors who asked children aged ten at a Christian school if they knew what lesbians ‘did’. They are also said to have questioned pupils about transsexuality and asked if any of their friends felt trapped in ‘the wrong body’.

As we all know, if children aren’t confused already about their identity, we need to make them feel confused, in order to make them better people in some way that we’re obviously too uneducated to understand.

PokemonBoyGirl.jpg
I’m sorry Professor Oak, but those words are not politically correct. I’d suggest you instead ask the children what colour penguin they are so you don’t confuse them.

But there is something particularly toxic about allegations of racism, not least because there is a danger that the more children are branded racist, the more divisions will be sown between children of different colours and creeds where none existed before.

Impossible. Surely making every heterosexual white child out to be a racist/homophobic oppressor will bring them all closer together. If you disagree, you’re obviously a racist homophobe yourself.

Mr. Sharpton understands.
Mr. Sharpton understands.

Worse still, they warn that there can be serious consequences for young children, who can effectively end up being branded as bigots throughout their school career.

As we all know, children are guilty until proven innocent so the burden of proof is on them to prove that they aren’t bigots when they are accused.

Every single one of these children are racist because…just because. I don’t need to explain why. They need to prove that they aren’t.

In another case, at a Brighton nursery, a child aged three or four was the subject of an incident report and subjected to ‘counselling’.

This was, apparently, in response to an incident when she was ‘looking at pictures of people with different eye colours and said “yuk not black” and discarded all the black faces, then said “I want a boy”.’

I've heard of art imitating life, but never the reverse until now.
I’ve heard of art imitating life, but never the reverse until now.

Another mother wrote about how her five-year-old child had got into trouble for referring to her best friend as ‘brown’.

‘They said as this is the 2nd time she has made a “racist” remark it will be put on record and reported to the council,’ she wrote. ‘I was so upset! My daughter is NOT racist, she is five years old, she has coloured family members and family friends. Now it is down on record that my child is racist. I spoke to my daughter and she does not understand what she has done wrong . . . she said “mummy but she is brown, she has brown skin”.’

That 5 year old child is obviously racist because she noticed skin colour. You’re only allowed to notice the skin colour of white people, not non-whites.

For reasons you low IQ racists are too dumb to understand.
For reasons you low IQ racists are too dumb to understand.

‘The enforcers of these politically correct positions need to justify those positions: they look for evidence and find what they are looking for. It is a bit like witch-finding — they are seeking out examples to justify their position.’ With the end result, of course, that pupils find themselves being treated like criminals.

Politically correct logic is every bit as sound as creationist logic. Pretty strange seeing as most ultra PC types are atheists.

And after reading all that, how could anyone possibly think that the system is insane and overreacting to everything? Clearly, it’s saving lives, and we need to encourage these teachers to keep up the good work.

#openbordersforisrael

I’ve just heard that apparently this hashtag has been doing the rounds on twitter as of late. Personally, I just have to say that I think it’s a wonderful idea. Although it’s probably not well known in the mainstream (perhaps the Jewish controlled media are too modest to report on it), it is in fact the Jews who have been the biggest voices in favour of multiculturalism in Europe and European based societies.

It is thanks to their hard work and lobbying that we have had our boring first world countries culturally enriched by the invading hordes from third world countries. Regardless of your opinions on the Jews (whether you love them, hate them, or are completely indifferent to them), this is simply a fact that cannot be denied. Lets look at a few examples of the Jews who have worked tirelessly to enrich our societies with the gift of multiculturalism.

Europe will not survive without multiculturalism. Sure, it survived all this time without it, but clearly for reasons unknown and unstated, it cannot continue to survive this way. Thank you Barbara Spectre for knowing what’s best for us stupid goyim.

Dan Goldberg: Former editor of the Australian Jewish News, who credits Jews with getting Australia to change their “Whites Only” immigration policy.
Nicolas Sarkozy: The Hungarian half Jew who somehow became president of France, despite hating the native French people and wanting them to go extinct.
Here we have a tweet from Sarkozy which roughly translates as "Race mixing enriches society. Breeding with your own race destroys it". Strange how the French were breeding with their own for thousands of years  and became one of the most powerful countries in the world, but now it's suddenly going to destroy them.
Here we have a tweet from Sarkozy which roughly translates as “Race mixing enriches society. Breeding with your own race destroys it”. Strange how the French were breeding with their own  race for thousands of years and became one of the most powerful countries in the world, but now it’s suddenly going to destroy them. Notice how he doesn’t actually explain why he believes this to be so?

And here’s a video of Sarkozy telling the French people that it’s their duty to breed with other races to avoid future problems. If people don’t volunteer, the State will force them to do so against their will. Such diversity, such enrichment. Don’t you feel enriched white man?

Half Jew, David Cameron tells the ignorant goyim what they’re clearly too racist to see for themselves. Thank you Dave for reminding us how much Britain needs Islam in order to be enriched.
Ed Milliband, the current leader of the British Labour Party and Luciana Berger, one of his top MPs (both are Jews). Labour were the party who opened the immigration floodgates. Do we really think these two will close them?
David Schwarz: A polish holocaust survivor who emigrated to Sweden along with many other Jews. He aggressively pushed for multiculturalism there….and won.
The American Jewish Committee: One of the leading organisations pushing multiculturalism in America. They even boast about it themselves.
Jake Adelstein: A Jewish reporter based in Japan who is constantly lamenting how racist their society is. You see, it isn’t just white countries that they want to enrich. All first world countries deserve to experience the joys of cultural enrichment.

So as can be seen, Jews have been, and continue to be, some of the biggest advocates of Multiculturalism in the Western world. The information is all there and it cannot be denied. We have Jews to thank for all our diversity and enrichment. However, there’s one thing that seems strange about all this. Somehow these selfless Jews are so busy making sure that us Europeans, Americans, Australians and now, Japanese experience multicultural joy, that they forgot all about Israel.

Wait that can't be right. Surely this Jew should understand that his fellow Jews deserve Cultural enrichment as much as us Goyim.
Wait that can’t be right. Surely this Jew should understand that his fellow Jews deserve Cultural enrichment as much as us Goyim.

I don’t think that’s fair. Surely Israel also deserves to have their society enriched. In fact, I think Israel deserves it most of all, seeing as Jews have done so much to bring enrichment elsewhere. The time has come for Israel to open up her borders and experience the same multicultural joy as as all of us.

“You silly goyim. When these muslims say they are going to enforce their religion on the rest of the world, they’re obviously just joking. They obviously love and respect other cultures, so of course we’ll let them into Israel too.”
“We just want to enrich your culture by draining your taxes, performing voodoo rituals, and giving surprise “muh dik” to your women. Why do you refuse to let us in when all those racist white countries don’t have a problem with us?”
This man then proceeded to cry 6 million tears when someone questioned his idiotic comparison.
This man then proceeded to cry 6 million tears when someone questioned his idiotic comparison.
You're right Barbara. We need to help Israel to experience the wondrous joys of multiculturalism or else Israel will not survive, for the same unknown reasons that every other first world country will not survive without it.
You’re right Barbara. We need to help Israel to experience the wondrous joys of multiculturalism or else Israel will not survive, for the same unknown reasons that every other first world country will not survive without it.

You know in your hearts it’s right. Israel needs to experience those same multicultural joys that they have inflicted on everyone else.

Those who control our information supply, control our thoughts.

So 2015 is going to be a historic year in Ireland. We’re going to have a referendum on legalising gay marriage and all signs suggest that it will pass. To most of us, this just seems like a no-brainer. We think that it’s long overdue and we can’t comprehend how there was so much hostility towards homosexuals in the past in our societies. Then, we look at those who still feel hostility towards them and we feel disgust, contempt, and we consider them backwards in their thinking. We’d like to believe that we think this way simply because its the right way to think and that we’d think this way no matter what. Personally, I don’t think that’s the case.

Countries where gay marriage is legal. Very few allow it yet, so we’re actually being progressive for once.

Now let me just get the disclaimer out of the way before I continue on. I myself am not opposed to gay rights. Far from it. My policy has always been one of live and let live. As long as a person’s way of life does not cause harm to or infringe on the rights of others, I see no problem with people living their life as they see fit. I see absolutely no way that homosexuality causes harm to others, so I will definitely be voting yes to gay marriage legislation and would encourage others to do the same.

So I googled “live and let live” to find a suitable image to put here. I think the rainbow was the perfect choice given the subject matter.

Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, I’ll continue. We look at countries like Russia and their anti-gay laws and we think “How could they do that?” The reality is, they can do that because they have widespread popular support to do so. In fact, according to this article, 88% of Russians polled support the law (and I wonder how many of the 12% who don’t are heterosexuals). People in the West demonise the Russian government for this law, but the reality is it’s Russian society as a whole that has a problem with homosexuality.

Countries where being gay is illegal. Notice how Russia isn’t one of them? Yet we focus all our negative attention there instead of the worse offenders.

So what is it that makes them different from us? Why is it that we in the West are so supportive of the rights of homosexuals, but those in Russia (and many other countries where it’s actually completely illegal) aren’t? Is it just that we’re smarter and more enlightened? Is it because we’re naturally more compassionate people? My answer to that is no. We need only look at our own past to see this. Back when we were Catholic Church dominated Ireland, we were just as opposed to homosexuality as the Russians are. In fact, we only decriminalised homosexual acts in 1993, the same year funnily enough that Russia did. However, in the 2 decades since, Russia has remained as homophobic a society as ever, whereas as we not only tolerate it, but welcome it and treat it with the same level of respect as heterosexuality.

“What Jimmy didn’t know was that Ralph was sick. A sickness that was not visible like smallpox, but no less dangerous and contagious. A sickness of the mind. You see, Ralph was a homosexual, a person who demands an intimate relationship with members of their own sex.” I’m dying from laughter.

The reason why is obvious. Our media and our public representatives have been pushing very strongly for gay rights. Homophobic people and institutions are condemned as bigots. We have enacted legislation that forbids us from discriminating based on a person’s sexuality (and rightfully so), and we have seen more and more positive portrayals of gay characters in our entertainment in modern times.

Omar Little: A gay character from The Wire and probably the coolest and most badass motherfucker by far on the show.

I’m a young enough guy, but I’m old enough to remember the days when people would use the word “Gay” in place of the words “Stupid”, “Bad”, and other negative words and nobody would bat an eye. I can remember a time when gay teens felt unable to come out of the closet for fear of being bullied by their classmates. I can remember when people used to think of the famous gay bar, The George, as some kind of hangout for perverted degenerates, rather than what it actually is, a perfectly normal pub which just happens to be a comfortable place for gay people to meet each other. All of this was only about a decade ago. We’ve come a long way in our attitudes towards the gay community.

I just believe that it’s something that merits thinking about. If the media can change our attitudes to long held thoughts on a topic that quickly and easily, what other things can they (or indeed have they?) influence us on? As I’ve said, I do believe that beyond the obvious biased push in favour of gay rights, that even looking at it from an unbiased perspective, it is the right way to go. However, I can’t help but wonder. If our media was more like the media in Russia, would we still have the same attitudes? I’m sure most of us would like to say that yes we would, but honestly, I’m not so sure.

Zzzapp. Zzzzapp.
