So there was an attack last nightat an Ariana Grandeconcert in Manchester. I was up last night, getting the live updates as they were reported. At the time it was unconfirmed what had actually happened. There were rumours that some helium balloons had burst, making a sound similar to that of an explosion, which caused concert-goers to panic and stampede, trampling and killing/injuring other people in the process. There were rumours that an electrical transformer had exploded and that this is what had killed people. Then of course there were the rumours that it was a terrorist attack, which is only natural of course seeing as terrorist attacks happen almost constantly in Europe these days.
I didn’t want to write about it myself until we had confirmation about what exactly had happened, but now we do. Apparently it was a suicide bomber. So yeah, those who assumed it was yet another terrorist attack, assumed correctly. I can remember last week when a drunk Mexican driver ran over a bunch of people in Times Square, most people naturally assumed it was a terrorist attack, because from initial reports, it fit the pattern of vehicle based terror attacks that have been plaguing European cities for the past year or so. Then when it was confirmed that it wasn’t a terrorist attack, the liberal apologists were out in force in comments sections, sneering at all the “racists” and “Islamophobes”, who had incorrectly presumed that it was terrorism, because of their ability to recognise precadant.
“Yay, hooray, those innocent people weren’t killed by Muslim terrorists, you racist Islamophobic scum. It was a drunk driver. You were wrong, wrong, wrong, to just assume that it was terrorism. I’m so happy that it wasn’t a Muslim this time because now I get to mock you for being wrong for once, instead of the ten or so previous times were you ended up being right. What? Oh I don’t care that innocent people actually died. I’m just glad that it wasn’t a Muslim who did it, because it means that you’re wrong.”
There’s not really more that I can say at this point, that I haven’t already said countless times already. Rather than saying anymore, I’ll just finish off with this latest video from “Black Pigeon Speaks”.
I just can’t believe it. I thought the Nazis had been wiped out in Germany 70 years ago, but apparently I was wrong. They just went underground and bided their time, until they could implement their new master-plan… to buy McDonald’s franchises and put up signs that hurt the feelings of random non-Aryan people residing in the country (Turks specifically in this case). This is like Holocaust 2.0.
A bilingual sign at a McDonald’s fast-food chain restaurant has been branded racist. The one in Turkish sends customers to a bad neighborhood, while the German one points to an upper-class area.
Am I the only person wondering why they’re even accommodating the Turks by having signs in their language at all? I don’t believe Turkish is an official language in Germany… at least not yet. That will almost certainly change of course, if Erdogan’s plan to have Turks in Europe outbreed the native Europeans and eventually take over the continent, succeeds.
Also, if I was to guess why the sign in Turkish sends people to a “bad neighbourhood”, it’s probably because that sign directs to a neighbourhood that is full of Turkish people.
An owner of three McDonald’s franchise restaurants in the German city of Mannheim found himself in a hot water after placing a bilingual sign at the doors his establishment, according to local media reports.
In saner times, the outrage would have been for having a sign in Turkish at all. You don’t make accommodations for the invaders who are trying to conquer and ethnically replace you.
As the restaurant in question was closing down, the owner Manfred Büch explained in a statement that he wanted to direct his customers to the two other ones he owned. The two languages pointed to very different locales, however.
Here’s what I’m wondering though. Lets say the signs were reversed, and the German language one directed people to the bad neighbourhood, and the Turkish one to the upper-class area. Would there be any controversy about “racism” then?
I think we already know the answer to that question…
The questionable signs drew criticism from members of the local Turkish community, which accused the restaurant owner of “racial segregation in 2017.”
Oh my God, it’s *current year*, and the big bad McDonald’s Nazi, is hurting the feelings of the Turkish invaders with his mean sign.
Do you want to know a place you can go, where you won’t have to be offended by racist signs anymore?
The restaurant owner promptly reacted to the criticism and took the controversial signs down. He stressed that he has owned the franchise restaurants for 25 years and there have been no racist incidents in his establishments, while a lot of “international employees” had been working in them.
“We have worked together with international employees for 25 years, every day without any racism. To be accused now of discrimination makes us speechless and sad,” Die Welt quoted Büch as saying.
Yeah… none of that will matter of course, because they were just looking for a witch hunt and an easy target to bully with accusations of racism, and congratulations, you gave them what they wanted, by giving in to their stupid demands, rather than standing your ground. They’re like sharks smelling blood in the water, or perhaps more appropriately, cockroaches smelling bits of food that fell under your fridge. Once they sense weakness in their target, they become relentless.
Büch insisted that he only meant to be “inclusive” for all his customers and that the signs were simply misunderstood, adding that he had ordered the controversial signs from a Turkish company.
I think this proves that he shouldn’t have bothered trying to do any nice things for them. It always ends up backfiring.
McDonald’s Germany reacted to the incident, calling it a “misunderstanding” and praising the restaurant owner for his swift reaction to the criticism.
“Discrimination has no place in our restaurants. This is clearly a misunderstanding, and we applaud the franchise owner for his swift reaction in removing the signs,” Die Welt quoted the fast food giant’s statement.
Not good enough McDonald’s. Think of all the hurt feelings this Nazi must have caused. The fact that you aren’t taking the franchises back from him and blacklisting him from ever owning another one, leads me to only one conclusion…
What a horrible tragedy this is. I can barely even imagine just how badly this must have hurt the feelings of these poor innocent victims. Hopefully Merkel will launch an investigation into this McDonald’s/Nazi connection, and make sure justice is done.
Almost two years, I wrote a post in which I touched upon the problem the UK was experiencing with Muslim rape gangs, grooming and sexually exploiting little white English girls by the thousands, with the authorities turning a blind eye for years to what was happening. Today I learned that apparently less than 5 years after being convicted, seven members of a nine man gang involved in this depravity, have already been released from prison.
Seven members of a notorious sex gang who trafficked vulnerable teen girls in the north of England are free from prison just five years after being locked up.
Can you imagine that? These pieces of shit destroyed the lives of who knows how many innocent children, the children of the people whose country they were guests within no less, and this is what they get? Only five years in prison. The authorities of the UK should be ashamed of themselves (well that is, if they were actually capable of even feeling shame). They’re not only responsible for causing this problem in the first place by importing these worthless animals into their country and forcing their own population to live side by side with them. They not only failed to then protect their children, by keeping these scumbags in line. They’ve now failed to make sure justice was even done, by returning their freedom to them this quickly. This is an absolute disgrace.
Nine men (eight of whom are pictured above) were imprisoned for their part in an Asian sex abuse ring in Rochdale, near Manchester, in May 2012.
I really hate when they use that word “Asian” to describe them. It wasn’t Chinese people doing this. It wasn’t Japanese people. It was Pakistani Muslims.
But now it has emerged that, just five years later, all but two have been freed.
It probably would have been a violation of their “human rights” to keep them imprisoned any longer. Either that, or there wasn’t enough room in British prisons for more recently convicted criminals, a disproportionately high amount of which, happens to be Muslims. Gotta get the old ones out to make room for the new ones. Sure, they’ve probably learned their lesson by now.
The sex trafficking ring saw girls as young as 13 passed between mostly Muslim men in the towns of Rochdale and Oldham.
The horrific abuse went on for years before victims came forward and managed to secure justice. During the trials, Liverpool Crown Court heard that one 13-year-old victim got pregnant and had an abortion, while another had been forced to have sex with 20 men in a single night.
“Diversity is our greatest strength.”
“They enrich our culture.”
“They’ll pay our pensions.”
“If you question any of this, you’re just a racist who hates them for the colour of their skin, and any seemingly logical argument you give for questioning any of this, is just to cover up this irrational hatred of skin colour that you have.”
These are not men. These are cowards. The children of their own ethnic group were getting raped and sexually abused on an industrial scale by hostile invaders, and these cowards were more worried that people people might call them names if they actually did their jobs properly, than about protecting these children. I just can’t get over that at all.
Members of the gang were jailed for between four and 22 years, with an average sentence of eight years and 11 months.
Still woefully inadequate. Castration and life imprisonment should have been the sentence. Oh, and they should only have been fed pork in prison as well.
But due to British criminals usually being released from prison – subject to some conditions – halfway through their jail terms, most of the men are out already.
Why even give a certain sentence, if it the norm is for it to only last half as long as specified? May as well be honest about it.
Here is a breakdown of the convictions:
Shabir Ahmed, the ringleader (sex assault, trafficking) 22 years
Mohammed Sajid, rape, trafficking, 12 years
Kabeer Hassan, rape, 9 years
Abdul Aziz, trafficking, 9 years
Adil Khan, trafficking, 8 years
Abdul Rauf, trafficking, 6 years
Mohammed Amin, sexual assault, 5 years
Abdul Qayyum, conspiracy to have sex with a child, 5 years
Hamid Safi, trafficking, 4 years
Just your typical English men there.
According to local newspaper the Manchester Evening News, only Ahmed and Sajid are still in prison.
Sajid will probably be out sometime next year by the sound of things, so that will just leave Ahmed… who will probably be out in another five.
The British government has attempted to deport Ahmed, Khan, Rauf and Aziz, who were all British-Pakistani dual citizens.
They shouldn’t have given them British citizenship in the first place. And if it’s a case were they themselves were born in Britain, but it was their parents who moved to Britain, then it’s their parents who shouldn’t have been given British citizenship.
The multicultural concept is a proven failure at this point. To anyone who still believes that multiculturalism can in fact work, then can you answer this question. Can you name any multicultural society either existing today, or existing historically that checks off the following:
Is a democracy.
Has a respect for human rights.
All groups are equal under the law.
All groups are equal in practice.
Has absolutely no ethnic tension between the different groups.
Identity politics aren’t the norm.
Because I sure can’t think of any. I can think of countries that meet the first three criteria, but they usually fail to meet the latter three.
It successfully had the men stripped of their British citizenship, but all four men have since launched legal challenges, funded by UK taxpayers, in an attempt to stay.
The UK’s Court of Appeal will get the final say on whether they can be removed from the country or not.
ITALY HAS BROKEN up a mafia ring accused of infiltrating one of the country’s largest migrant reception centres and capitalising on asylum seekers with the help of a Catholic association, police said today.
And anyone who claimed before that this migrant crisis was a money making scam that was being encouraged in order to enrich certain people, was dismissed as “racist” and “xenophobic”. But of course, the truth always comes out eventually. You can be sure that the Mafia weren’t the only ones making money out of this though. “Legitimate” organisations are as well.
The Arena clan, a family belonging to the powerful ‘Ndrangheta crime syndicate, allegedly made a fortune by supplying services for the centre at Isola di Capo Rizzuto and syphoning off money from the state destined for the migrants.
Plenty of money going around to help take care of the African migrants who are pretending to flee the war in Syria. This is despite the fact that austerity is being forced on the Italian people at the same time. So the Italian taxpayers are seeing their tax burden rise and their services cut, in order to meet the demands of austerity. Meanwhile, taxes are being diverted to look after useless people like this who will forever be an economic burden… and there isn’t even any justification for it, seeing as the majority are coming from sub-Saharan Africa rather than Syria anyway.
“Over 500 agents overnight arrested 68 people … accused of mafia association, extortion, carrying illegal weapons, fraud, embezzlement to the detriment of the state, (and) theft,” police in Catanzaro, a city in Calabria, said in statement.
Their investigation revealed “that the clan controlled, for profit, the management of the reception centre” at Isola di Capo Rizzuto — which has held up to 1,500 migrants at a time — for over a decade.
Wow… over a decade? But both the Libyan and Syrian civil wars only started in 2011. What were these migrants fleeing from back in 2007?
Police arrested Leonardo Sacco, the 35-year-old head of the Catholic Misericordia association which runs the centre, who has boasted of links to high-powered political figures.
Local priest Edoardo Scordio was also detained in the sting.
This won’t do much to help salvage the church’s poor reputation.
Cash for spiritual guidance
“Some €32 million went straight into the clan’s pocket,” assistant prosecutor Vincenzo Luberto said, adding that Scordio had received €150,000 for offering “spiritual guidance” to the migrants.
Preaching the word of God doesn’t come cheap.
Honesty, this is more like the kind of behaviour that I would expect from a rabbi than a priest.
Police say the Arena clan, through Sacco, awarded contracts for services such as the centre’s food supplies to associations it set up specifically for the purpose, as well as to other ‘Ndrangheta families.
It also provided food services to the reception centre on Lampedusa, the Italian island which for several years was the frontline of the migrant humanitarian crisis, the biggest influx in Europe since World War II.
The head of the country’s anti-mafia commission, Rosy Bindi, said the sting was “an important result in the fight against the ‘Ndrangheta and the infiltration of mafia in the management of migrants”.
About 175,000 people are currently living in reception centres, where the state provides food, clothing, Italian lessons, psychological support, health care and a small amount of pocket money.
All paid for by the Italian tax-payer of course.
Italy’s finance ministry has estimated the 2017 budget for migrant reception at three billion euros, depending on how many people are rescued in the Mediterranean and brought to the country.
And they still haven’t yet thought of maybe… I dunno… sending them back to where they came from when they rescue them, rather than ferrying them all the way back to Europe? As I wrote about almost two years ago to the day, the vast majority of these migrants being picked up in the Mediterranean, aren’t fleeing from warzones. They’re economic migrants leaving perfectly safe, (albeit very poor) sub-Saharan African countries, travelling through several safe countries on their way to Libya, and then getting on non-seaworthy boats, hoping to be rescued and ferried to Europe… which usually happens, unless they’re among the unlucky ones whose boat sinks before they can encounter a European naval ship (or in some cases, which they deliberately sink themselves). There’s no moral reason to rescue these people from their own self inflicted decisions and if anything, rescuing them is only encouraging more of them to do it, because the rewards for doing so successfully… a life on welfare in Europe, are too tempting to resist.
More than 45,000 people have arrived so far this year, a 44% increase from the same period in 2016.
This is unsustainable. They can’t just keep letting every single person who wants to come to Europe, to actually come. There needs to be a proper solution put in place.
Raffaele Cantone, Italy’s anti-graft chief, said the mafia infiltration at Isola di Capo Rizzuto “is unfortunately, I believe, just the tip of the iceberg, and certainly not a one-off case”.
Nope. As I said, there’s definitely plenty more people scamming money from this whole situation. That’s why it’s being encouraged so strongly by the controlled mainstream media and the bought and paid for political establishment. Their financial masters are making too much money out of this whole thing and therefore want to keep it going as long as possible, regardless of how much it damages Europe or causes the ordinary European people to suffer.
The Calabrian centre had long been on the authorities’ radar. In 2015, Italy’s L’Espresso magazine published an investigative report alleging that managers at the camp were stealing funds earmarked for migrants and making money by starving them.
“If the organisation was supposed to provide 500 meals, it provided 300 and the rest went hungry,” prosecutor Nicola Gratteri said.
The Crotone prefecture said in 2014 that it appeared the official number of people recorded at the centre was grossly inflated, with management pocketing funds from the state for “ghost” migrants.
A health inspection in 2013 revealed that asylum seekers were being given miserly portions of out-of-date food, and that the centre was illegally hosting 70 unaccompanied minors who went barefoot and slept in a hangar with only two toilets.
I have no sympathy. These worthless invaders don’t deserve to be properly taken care of. I hope it was as uncomfortable as possible, to make them regret their decision to try and leech off the European people.
The Arena clan hit the headlines in 2012 after police seized assets from them worth 350 million euros, including one of Europe’s largest wind farms.
It’s “ethically inappropriate” for government and medical organizations to describe breastfeeding as “natural” because the term enforces rigid notions about gender roles, claims a new study in Pediatrics.
I just… I can’t even… just what the fuck have I just read here?
“Coupling nature with motherhood… can inadvertently support biologically deterministic arguments about the roles of men and women in the family (for example, that women should be the primary caretaker,” the study says.
No you fucking moron, people say that “breastfeeding is natural”, because it’s one of the most natural things in the world. All female mammals (humans included) have mammary glands that produce milk which they use to feed their young. Male mammals (again, humans included) don’t have this ability. If it’s natural for every other mammal to do this, then what makes humans the exception? Where did this arrogant view come from, that somehow nature doesn’t apply to humans?
The study notes that in recent years, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the World Health Organization, and several state departments of health have all promoted breastfeeding over bottle-feeding, using the term “natural.”
BECAUSE IT IS FUCKING NATURAL!!!!
“Referencing the ‘natural’ in breastfeeding promotion… may inadvertently endorse a set of values about family life and gender roles, which would be ethically inappropriate,” the study says.
Yeah, could you imagine? It might offend certain people to make statements like this.
Unless such public-service announcements “make transparent the ‘values and beliefs that underlie them,’” they should quit describing breastfeeding as “natural.”
“You should do this thing because WE say so. If you don’t do as we say, we will call you names like ‘sexist’ or ‘transphobic’, or whatever other word we think of, until we get our way. Then when you prove your weakness and cowardice by giving in to our initial demands, we’ll start making even more outrageous demands, and force you to do as we say again.”
But the study’s authors, Jessica Martucci and Anne Barnhill, clearly have in mind an alternative set of “values and beliefs,” about which which they are not transparent.
According to this article, they actually first published this lunacy over a year ago. When called out on it, they just screeched about “misogyny”, claiming people were just attacking them for being outspoken women, rather than the fact that their ideas were being ridiculed for their obvious stupidity.
It’s unclear whether they’re worried about how traditional female gender roles may limit women’s progress in the workforce, or whether this is part of the discussion about whether conventional views about motherhood exclude transgender people.
Who cares what their motivation was? Either way, it doesn’t change the fact that breastfeeding IS natural. There’s no justification for what they are claiming.
Or perhaps this is just another example of how the progressive obsession with gender and sexuality has permeated all fields of academic study.
Yeah that’s probably the most likely explanation.
Regardless, Martucci and Barnhill mask their agenda by also making the unconvincing secondary argument that describing breastfeeding as “natural” fuels the anti-vaccine movement.
When public-service announcements praise breastfeeding as “natural,” Martucci and Barnhill argue, the implication is that manufactured or mass-produced products are questionable or dangerous—so these promotions may unintentionally encourage parents to reject scientific progress elsewhere.
*Claims breastfeeding shouldn’t be described as “natural”*
“If doing what is ‘natural’ is ‘best’ in the case of breastfeeding, how can we expect mothers to ignore that powerful and deeply persuasive worldview when making choices about vaccination?” they write.
Because they are two different things and have absolutely no connection, you idiot. Doing one, doesn’t have any bearing on whether or not they’ll do the other.
There’s certainly an assertive worldview woven throughout this paper, though we find it neither powerful nor deeply persuasive.
I’m feeling very cynical about democracy and electoral politics in general these days. The more I think about it, the more I come to believe that democracy just isn’t a viable system of government at all. I mean in all honesty, is anyone ever really happy with what they get? Just take our situation here in Ireland for example. Is anybody, even the people who voted for Fine Gael or Fianna Fail actually happy with the current government? How about the previous Fine Gael/Labour coalition? Was anyone pleased with that government? Or the Fianna Fail led one before that, etc.? Honestly, I can’t think of anyone who feels that any recent democratically elected Irish government actually represents the interests of the Irish people. But yet, we keep voting every single election, expecting things to be different next time, and we keep getting let down.
This conclusion is reflected when I look elsewhere. Take Britain for example. The yes side in the Brexit campaign won by a very slim majority. The 48% who voted against it are furious and have been restless in their attempts to get the result overturned in their favour. The political establishment is almost entirely anti-Brexit in its leanings and seems to be on the side of the losing minority, rather than the winning majority. No matter what happens, the end result is going to leave roughly half the country feeling screwed over. Either the large minority who only just barely lost, will resent being removed from the EU, or somehow by hook or by crook, the political establishment will find a way to overturn it eventually, thus screwing over the small majority who won.
In America, I look at the situation between Trump and Hillary. We had one candidate who was in favour of mass immigration, destructive freed trade deals, escalating conflicts around the world, etc., and then we had one candidate who opposed this. The candidate who opposed this won by the rules of their electoral system, but lost the popular vote, therefore undermining his legitimacy right away. To make matters worse, after a few good months were he seemed to be sticking to his promises, he suddenly, roughly a little over a month ago has started doing a U-Turn. No sign of the Mexican border wall. No desire anymore to pull out of the destructive NAFTA agreement. Attacking Syria and therefore making their relationship with Russia worse, after having promised to leave Syria alone and work on improving their relationship with Russia.
Smug, anti-Trump types will sneer at Trump voters for being “stupid enough to vote for him”. But realistically, what else could they do? Trump was saying he would stop illegal immigration and immigration from incompatible cultures, stop getting into pointless wars, move away from free trade agreements etc. Hillary said the exact opposite. If people wanted to see these policies implemented then obviously they’re going to vote for the person who said that they’ll do them, not the one who said they won’t. Sneering at disillusioned Trump voters for doing a U-Turn is basically victim-blaming. They had no way of knowing that he would betray them, but they did know for certain that Hillary would implement policies they didn’t want (well unless she too was to do a U-Turn, but that of course would have necessitated a betrayal of HER voters), so unless his supporters had psychic powers of some kind, and could see the future, they aren’t to blame. The democratic system, which allows people to lie their way into power with fake promises, and then doesn’t hold them to account when they break these promises is to blame.
However, it is France specifically that I want to draw my attention to. Yesterday, they had their presidential election. For the past few years they’ve been led by Francois Hollande, a “leader” so pathetic that by the end of his run, he literally only had a 4% approval rate. During his presidency, they’ve had terrorist attacks occur every few months (and that’s not even counting the many attempted ones that were successfully prevented before-hand), and they’ve had near constant riots in Paris, orchestrated primarily by people of Middle Eastern and African descent.
So you would think the French would be pretty angry about what has been happening, and indeed they sure seem to be. You would also think that after the failures of both Sarkozy and Hollande, that they would want someone different from the usual political establishment. In the end, they were left with two possible candidates to choose from. They could go with either Marine Le Pen, the candidate who seemed to want to put an end to the these problems, by giving the French people a referendum on EU membership, and putting an end to mass immigration (which of course, makes her a racist). Or they could go with Emmanuel Macron… a man who worked as an investment banker for a Rothschild bank no less (even his Wikipedia page openly mentions this), a man who seems to have a vast history of corruption, a man who supports the Islamisation of Europe, a man who has an offshore bank account to facilitate tax evasion, and a man who said this…
… about his own country. Just on the surface, the idea of saying that there is no such thing as French culture, sounds laughable, because we all have a natural vision of what symbolises France and “French” in our minds. However, it’s a lot more sinister than it sounds. As I’ve mentioned before, under the UN’s own definition, what is happening in Europe right now, fits the criteria of genocide.
By making the claim that French culture doesn’t even exist, then technically speaking there is no French culture to protect and preserve. How can he be accused of destroying French culture and by extension, the French people, if there is no such thing? This is essentially how a genocide begins. The first step is to dehumanise the target. In the case of a concept like culture, the first step is to deny it even exists. Then when that is done, you undermine and eliminate it. It’s no big deal of course, because you’re just undermining and eliminating something that doesn’t even exist.
I was hoping that the French people would be able to see what’s going on and vote for Le Pen. Just to be clear, I doubt Le Pen would have actually done anything that she promised. This is democracy after all. Most likely, if she had gotten into power, she would have ended up going back on her promises, just like Trump did. However, having her in power would have served two purposes. One, it would serve as a symbol that the people are fed up with globalisation and the disastrous consequences of multiculturalism, which could have energised even more people to stand up against it. Two, when she inevitably did a U-Turn, it would have served as yet another example of what a sham democracy really is, and brought us closer to having people wake up to the fact that it doesn’t really exist. By not voting for Le Pen, they’ve basically said that they’re ok with constant terrorism (which Macron admits will be a part of their daily lives for years to come), and when he does inevitably fuck up, there will still be people buying into the idea that electoral politics could have still solved the problems facing us, “if only we had voted for Le Pen when we had the chance”.
The fact is, democracy is ridiculous. Nobody seems to get what they really want. I can’t think of any examples of a democratic society in which a large majority of the people actually approve of their leader, beyond the short time after the initial victory, because they always let the people down eventually. Even a leader who was supposedly very popular like Obama, had approval rates that tended to fluctuate within the 40s and 50s percent range for most of his time in office. As I already mentioned, Francois Hollande had a 4% approval rating in the end. Justin Trudeau’s party in Canada are currently on around a 36% approval rate. Angela Merkel is still somehow the most popular leader in Germany, but even she has seen her approval decline to just 43%, which of course means that 57% don’t approve of her.
Then on the other hand I look at the leaders that the west demonises, the so called “dictators” and “undemocratic” leaders. Vladimir Putin has an approval rate of about 86%, and this is even after Russia has had its economy devastated by Western sanctions. The Russian people don’t care about the economic hardship they’re experiencing. If anything, because they know the west are responsible, it just causes them to support him even more. Assad, a man who the West claim is a brutal dictator who kills his own citizens for no reason, won a contested election in 2014, with 88.7% of the vote, and there is no indication that his popularity is declining. Duterte in the Philippines, a man who has essentially made murder legal (as long as you claim that the person you killed was a drug dealer or addict), enjoys an approval rating of 83%, down from the 91% he once enjoyed, but still far higher than any Western leader.
So when you really think about that, how insane does it all sound? Here in the West, where we have democracy and electoral politics, we don’t approve of our leaders. Meanwhile, in countries that the West condemns for their alleged lack of democracy, the leaders enjoy far more popularity than any Western leader that you can think of. The difference of course is that in these countries, the leaders actually represent the will of their people. In the west, where we’re supposedly free to choose the leaders that we want to represent us, they don’t represent us at all. Having our will represented is what we really want.
So if that’s the case, then what is the point of democracy? Yes, in theory I like the idea of being able to choose who will lead my country, but if they don’t implement policies that I support, then in practice, it’s useless anyway. We may as well just have a dictator in power. On the other hand, if we were to be represented by a strong decisive leader, who does implement the will of the people, then it really wouldn’t matter if I chose him or not. All that would matter to me is that he’s implementing policies that I approve of.
And that’s the point I want to end on. Does democracy really matter? If the choice is between an elected leader who doesn’t implement the policies that I want, and an unelected leader who does implement them, then the better choice seems obvious to me.
I’ve jokingly referred to Western universities as “Marxist re-education centres” in the past. Anyone who has seen what goes on there should understand why. However, it seems that some Marxist ideologues, aren’t willing to wait until their targets are in university, before commencing with the brainwashing. They’d rather get to the kids while they’re still in school.
The New York City Department of Education is investigating a taxpayer-funded secondary school principal in Brooklyn for allegedly promoting communism and recruiting students for radical political causes.
If there’s one thing the world needs more of, it’s attempts to implement Communism. Sure, it has been an abject failure, resulting in millions of deaths, every single time it has been attempted before, but eventually, it’s sure to work out well. We just have to keep on trying, and eventually we’ll get it right.
The New York City education department initiated its investigation into Bloomberg’s alleged communist and communist-recruitment activities based on a tip from someone who remains anonymous.
Probably afraid of suffering retaliation for speaking out. And really, who can blame them with how unhinged those Antifa, Communist scum have become as of late?
The tipster told officials that Bloomberg is affiliated with the Progressive Labor Party, a revolutionary communist political party based in Brooklyn.
Court documents filed by the education department say that the investigation is focused on allegations that Bloomberg has worked to promote the agenda of the Progressive Labor Party by recruiting students “to participate in organizational activities, including marches for her political organization.”
According to the Progressive Labor Party’s website, the group seeks to foment violent revolution. “Only the dictatorship of the working class — communism — can provide a lasting solution to the disaster that is today’s world for billions of people. This cannot be done through electoral politics, but requires a revolutionary movement and a mass Red Army led by PLP.”
It’s amazing that this sort of thing has been tried countless times already over the past century, and every single time that it has, it has always made things even worse for the “working class” that it’s supposed to help. Mass arrests and incarceration. Food shortages. Slave labour. Torture and executions. It’s always the same. I actually wonder at times, how many of these people who push for this are just evil, totalitarian brutes, who know this and simply don’t care, and how many are just naive idiots who have no knowledge of what has already happened..
Also: “Communism means the Party leads every aspect of society. For this to work, millions of workers — eventually everyone — must become communist organizers. Join Us!”
That’s because it has to control everything, because it’s completely at odds with human nature. If the party didn’t control everything, nobody would go along with it, because it is such a stupid system that no sane person would willingly participate in.
The Progressive Labor Party “fights to destroy capitalism and the dictatorship of the capitalist class” by organizing “workers, soldiers and youth into a revolutionary movement for communism.”
“Destroy a dictatorship”
“Implement a different dictatorship”
Court documents filed by New York City’s education department allege that students who disagree with Bloomberg and her comrades “are not allowed to express” their political views.
Of course not, because in a fair and honest debate, they wouldn’t be able to justify their belief system at all. There’s no logic or sanity to it, and if people were allowed to have an open discussion about it, it would be torn apart with ease, hence why they have to silence opinions that are critical of them. It’s the same reason why the Antifa scum use violence and intimidation against people they consider “fascists”. It’s because the “fascists” have logic and reason on their side and would easily win a debate, so the Antifa use violence, rather than logic to support their belief system.
In addition, the school district says, Bloomberg and her husband used footage of Park Slope Collegiate students and staff in documentary for a Progressive Labor Party-affiliated group “without authorization” from the students or staff members.
The policies of New York City’s school district “prohibit the use of school facilities, equipment and supplies on behalf of political organizations,” according to the education department’s court filing.
It’s ok though, she’s one of God’s chosen people. The “system” will probably take that into consideration.
Bloomberg’s lawsuit concerning the investigation — filed Friday — contends that the investigation into her alleged communist activities is retaliation because she opposes racism and has criticized the New York City Board of Education for, she says, practices that amount to segregation.
No, it’s probably because you’re trying to brainwash impressionable children into supporting a totalitarian and failed ideology that has resulted in millions of deaths.
Earlier this year, Bloomberg charged the education department with discrimination because, she said, a school with many white students received more sports equipment than Park Slope Collegiate did. The students at Park Slope Collegiate are primarily black and Latino.
I’m guessing the white students probably have parents who pay more in taxes, so their kids should benefit more.
Supporters of Bloomberg packed a Lower Manhattan courtroom for a hearing related to Bloomberg’s lawsuit. Many of them all wore the same t-shirts.
Like the brainwashed cult that they are…
After the hearing, Bloomberg and her supporters spoke.
Probably speech that she personally disapproves of.
“The speech I am most known for is anti-racism,” the principal also said.
Bloomberg’s supporters recited her message in remarkably similar fashion.
A Park Slope Collegiate eighth grader named Maya showed up at the court proceedings to declare that Bloomberg only wants to fight against racism.
And to fight to implement Communism.
“It’s just upsetting that she’s being accused of stating her own political views when she’s just stating the facts that racism is here,” Maya informed Chalkbeat.
Funny how she’s allowed to state her political views, but the students who disagree with her aren’t.
A special education teacher, Sarah Vega, swore that Bloomberg never tries to indoctrinate students with revolutionary communist propaganda.
“I’ve worked for her for over a decade,” Vega told Chalkbeat. “I’ve never seen her furthering any political agenda whatsoever. She fights against racism, but I don’t really consider that partisan politics.”
Bloomberg has indicated that she does not belong to the Progressive Labor Party.
Somehow, I don’t believe any of this
This week, a federal judge is expected to decide whether to allow the investigation by school officials to proceed.
My guess, the judge will probably have a last name ending with either “berg”, “stein”, “witz” or “cohen”, and will throw it out. Maybe I’ll be proven wrong though.
