UK: “Universities need to hand out more degrees to black students, just because…”


“Diversity is our greatest strength. We don’t need to explain why this is. We just know it to be true. Just like how we know that the sun revolves around the earth, and only racists heretics would ever question the obvious wisdom of that”.

Well it seems that diversity is being threatened in the UK. For reasons that are completely unexplainable (but most likely caused by racism), black students are failing to graduate from university at the same rate as their white counterparts. Because diversity and equality of outcome are more important than holding everyone to the same high standards as each other, something needs to be done about this ASAP.

From The Telegraph

Universities could be punished unless they give a higher proportion of top degrees to black students, under new proposals drawn up by the regulator.

Notice how there’s no mention of a requirement for the black students having to actually achieve the grades necessary to earn a top degree? They just have to be given it anyway.

Yep. Aren’t you so oppressed?

The Office for Students (OfS) has announced plans to overhaul its guidelines for boosting diversity in higher education, in what it says is the “biggest shake up” since 2004.

Are they ever going to explain why  boosting “diversity” is such an important thing to do? What are the actual benefits of this increased diversity? Why is it so essential? Why do we need it so badly, that we need to do away with “fairness”, and “merit” in order to achieve it? In what ways will the benefits of this increased diversity, outweigh the benefits of maintaining the current high standards?


They will never answer these questions, because quite frankly, there is no logical answer to them. This is purely based on ideology, rather than common sense.

If institutions fail to comply with the regulator’s new “tougher” national targets for increasing the number of disadvantaged students, they could be penalised through a fine or even de-registered.

So they say it’s about helping “disadvantaged” students, but at the same time, are specifically focusing on race, rather than economic background. As far as they’re concerned, a black student from a rich family is disadvantaged, when compared to a white student from a poor family. Of course, anyone with any knowledge of what is going on, knows this is not really about helping students from disadvantaged backgrounds. It’s simply about hurting the prospects of white people.

Chris Millward, the OfS director for fair access and participation, said that universities will no longer be able to “mark their own homework” on their plans to up their intake of 18-year-olds from poor backgrounds.  

Instead, the new regulator, which came into force earlier this year, plans to set a series of national targets that all universities will be expected to meet.   

These will not be limited to targets for admitting more school leavers from deprived households, but will also include addressing the gap in degree attainment between black and white students, according to OfS proposals.

They never consider the idea of investigating WHY this gap in degree attainment exists in the first place. Understanding the root causes of the gap and trying to go from there to solve it, is not part of the agenda. Instead, they just want to manipulate the results and achieve equality of outcome without an equality of merit.


There has been an almost 50 per cent increase in the number of black and ethnic minority students in England between 2007 and 2016.

“Mass, replacement level immigration is just a Neo-Nazi, white supremacist, conspiracy theory.”

78 per cent of white students graduated last year with a first class of upper second class degree, compared to just 53 per cent of black students.

“Racism must be the cause for this. There couldn’t possibly be another explanation.”

Qualifications before attending university, although a key factor in degree outcomes, do not explain the differences between ethnic groups, according to data analysed by Universities UK.

No, but I’ve got a theory on what could explain the difference instead.

bell curve.jpg

In a consultation document, published today, the regulator sets out a number of areas that universities should work on, such as combatting the higher drop-out rate among poorer students compared to their middle-class peers.  

Mr Millward said: “Universities have always set their own targets, and have used different measures of success. They were kind of marking their own homework.

“We are going to set clearer national targets which they will refer to: not just looking at access but do students finish their courses? What is their degree outcome depending on background?”

I can guarantee you that this will all fail miserably. Governments are too incompetent to make anything work right.

Mr Millward said that universities have spent hundreds of millions of pounds on measures aimed at diversifying their intake of students, but have paid little or no attention to whether their schemes were effective. 

Hundreds of millions of pounds down the toilet in order to pursue this obsession with diversity, and we’ve still yet to hear an explanation about why this diversity is even desirable. Be perfectly honest with yourself. Even ignoring  the financial cost, and just focusing on everything else that has happened, has any country at all benefited from increased diversity? Has Sweden benefited? Has Germany? Has Italy? Has France? Has the UK? Has *insert any country here*? Seriously, what are the actual benefits of this diversity? Will anyone ever actually answer the question?

“I don’t doubt that universities are committed to improving access. They are spending a lot of money and doing a lot but they don’t understand enough about whether it’s working,” he told The Daily Telegraph.

It’s never going to work. Just like the way the first world has thrown trillions of dollars at Africa in foreign  aid and development over the past 50 years, and if anything, a lot of the countries there are going backwards rather than forwards.  You can keep throwing money at the problem all you want, but it’s never going to make a difference, because a lack of funding is not the cause.

“We are upping the expectation on evaluation. Once we know that, we can target [budgets] where it can make a difference.”


Last year, universities spent a total of around £800 million on projects to increase access and around half of this was spent on bursaries for students from poor households.

“I’m not arguing against bursaries being provided, particularly because students can be really challenged by the cost when they are at university,” Mr Millward said.

And yet despite spending that much money, they’re no closer to solving the “”problem”.

“But there is very little evidence that bursaries improve access. That is a really obvious areas where we need to evaluate. [We need to] ask why it is spent and what impact it is having?”


He actually said something that I agree with.

Dr Tim Bradshaw, chief executive of the Russell Group, said he welcomes the emphasis on evaluation

“There is a great deal of activity to improve access taking place across the sector but what we need now is a clear overview of which interventions make the biggest difference,” he said. “We need to be clearer on what works, and what doesn’t, if we are to shift the dial.”

Unfortunately, they’re not going to use the scientific method when trying to figure this situation out. They will automatically refuse to consider certain possibilities, limit the scope of what they will actually investigate, fail to find a possible solution, and either just go back to throwing money at the problem (and getting nowhere in the process), or just creating a two tier system, were black students are held to lower standards than white students, and see their graduation rate increase that way instead.

And this is what they call “”Equality”.

Welcome to Airstrip One (YET AGAIN!!!)

The UK government is a totalitarian nightmare, every bit as sinister, as its 1984 counterpart, Airstrip One. For several years, we’ve been hearing stories about Muslim rape gangs, raping little white girls, often with the authorities quite aware of what was happening, but refusing to act.

It will happen in our lifetimes, if sanity isn’t restored.

Today, several of the many number of these child raping scumbags were on trial for their crimes in the Halifax area, and the media has been forced to stay quiet about, lest they “prejudice the trial”. Of course those of us who have any common sense know the real reason for the silence. It is because there is a disproportionately high over-representation of Muslim men (particularly of Pakistani origin), in child sex crimes in Britain, and the treasonous authorities, don’t want the sleeping public to wake up to what is happening.

The real threat to public safety in Britain isn’t Muslim men raping little girls. It’s white men teaching their dog how to do Nazi salutes as a joke. That’s the real public interest story.

[Oh btw, this sort of thing is also happening in the Netherlands.]

Of course like it or not, the people have a right to know what is going on in the world. Freedom of the press is one of the cornerstones of living in a democracy. Or at least, that’s what we’re led to believe, when the press wants to push narratives that are at odds with our actual interests. When it comes to informing us about things that we actually need to know, suddenly they aren’t so keen to fight for and defend our rights. The only person who was willing to defy the embargo on reporting on what was going on, was “far right” figure, Tommy Robinson.

Here is what happened to him.

He was officially arrested for “breaching the peace”, but all he was actually doing was standing outside the court, and reporting to the public that a trial was going on, and what the trial was about. That’s it. Compare this to the recent trial in Belfast (also in the UK). The media had no restrictions on reporting on the identities of the defendants, what they were accused of, and the evidence presented during the trial. There wasn’t any concern about potentially prejudicing that trial, like there has been with this one. The difference of course, was that the men in the Belfast trial were all white, whereas the men (and 2 women) involved in this Halifax trial are of a Muslim background (I don’t know the races of every one of the defendants, so it’s possible that at least some may be white).

This has nothing to do with maintaining the integrity of the trial. This is purely about the UK government trying to cover up what is being inflicted upon the native British population, by a hostile group that they invited in, and then trying to silence anyone who tells the truth about what is happening. This isn’t done due to them being blinded from reality by political correctness. No, they know exactly what is going on, they know it’s going to keep on happening, and are silencing dissent, because they are at war with their own citizens, and are deliberately trying to harm them. That’s all it is. They aren’t crushing opposition out of a misplaced hope that eventually, things will work out. They’re doing it because they know for a fact that it won’t (because it isn’t intended to work), and they’re terrified of people waking up to the truth, while there is still time to fight back against it.

Tommy Robinson on his way to jail.

There’s a very real possibility that if Tommy Robinson goes to prison, that he has effectively been given a death sentence. Seeing as Muslims make up a disproportionately high amount of Britain’s prison population, and Robinson is not very popular with the Muslim community, I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if there are attempts on his life inside.

Does that seem like appropriate punishment for telling a truth that the government doesn’t want people hearing?

Welcome to Airstrip One (Again).

The country now commonly known as the “United Caliphate”, AKA “Britcuckistan”, AKA “Cuck Island“, and formerly known as the “United Kingdom”, is one of the few countries out there that has shown itself to be a viable contender to Sweden, for the crown of “First Western country to commit national suicide”. It’s stories like today’s that reveal exactly why it’s such a strong contender for the title.

From Times of Israel

A Scottish man who taught his girlfriend’s dog to do the Nazi salute was found guilty of a hate crime.

Spare a thought for the precious 6 million, gassed to death in a homicidal fake shower room, by a vicious, Nazi Pug.


Mark Meechan, 29, was convicted on Tuesday in Airdrie Sheriff’s Court in Scotland and is out on bail until his sentencing next month, the London-based Jewish Chronicle reported.

It’s quite likely, he’ll actually go to prison for this. Literally just for posting this video.

An obvious joke video. This is a hate crime now apparently.

He taught the pug, named Buddha, to respond with the Nazi salute when prompted by statements such as “Heil Hitler” and “gas the Jews.” Meechan posted videos of the dog performing the trick on YouTube.


How could anyone have a problem with this? It’s hilarious, and absolutely adorable.

The original video, posted in September 2016 on his YouTube channel, Count Dankula, was viewed more than 2.8 million times before it was removed for violating YouTube’s policy on hate speech. Meechan said on the video that he trained the dog to annoy his girlfriend.

“My girlfriend is always ranting and raving about how cute and adorable her wee dog is, so I thought I would turn him into the least cute thing I could think of, which is a Nazi,” he said.

See? He isn’t even endorsing Nazism. He outright says that he wanted to turn the dog into the least cute thing that he could think of, in order to prank his girlfriend. The worst possible thing he could think of was a Nazi. That means that he thinks Nazis are a bad thing, and therefore is not a sign of support for their views.

Although once again, I have to say that I disagree with his idea that this isn’t “cute”.  Look at the little guy trying to do a Roman Salute.

Meechan later posted a video in which he apologized for the original dog clips, saying it was a joke and that he has no such political leanings.

“I am so sorry to the Jewish community for any offense I have caused them. This was never my intention and I apologize,” he said.

Once again proving the old adage true, which is that when you get attacked for “being offensive”, you should never apologise. They never accept the apology. They just see it as a sign of weakness and it causes them to attack even harder. The man apologised for his obvious joke video, and he still got convicted for committing a hate crime. What good did his apology do?

Sheriff Derek O’Carroll said Tuesday that Meechan “knew that the material was offensive and knew why it was offensive. He would have known it was grossly offensive to many Jewish people.”

O’Carroll said he took freedom of expression into consideration, “but the right to freedom of expression also comes with responsibility.”

So what if it is offensive? It’s called “taking offense” for a reason. Because it’s something that you take, rather than something that is given to you. If they find it offensive, that’s their problem. Have we really gotten to the stage were we’re putting people in prison, for offending others? Have we really sunk that low?

Should the person who did this, also be put in prison, seeing as this would be highly offensive to Christians?

This story is bad enough on its own, but it feels even worse, when you put it in a wider context. It wasn’t long ago that yet another massive case of Muslim men torturing and raping little white English girls en masse, came out. Apparently this had been going on in the city of Telford for almost 40 years. For almost 40 years, a hostile alien force has been destroying the lives of innocent native girls, and the authorities were doing nothing to put an end to it. Yet a guy makes an obvious joke video online, gets arrested immediately, and convicted of a hate crime, just because the video is “offensive”.


Isn’t it funny how quick the police can act when a man who is a member of a “privileged” group, offends an “oppressed” group (Jews), but when another “oppressed” group (Muslims) commits the most vicious and brutal crimes against a “privileged” group (white children), the police do nothing about it for about 40 years? Isn’t that something? Does that not prove, just how real “white privilege” really is?

Britain is in an awful state right now, and is very much in the running to beat Sweden in the race to the bottom.

The UK has now gone “Full Sweden”.


In the country that is on its way to becoming known as the “United Caliphate”, a new textbook has been published for the purpose of brainwashing educating impressionable children. You see, there’s one group of people who are completely misunderstood by society at large. What group of people am I referring to? Why, terrorists of course. There’s a worry that children might hear all the negative stories about terrorists, and get a bad impression of them. Luckily for us, some lunatic enterprising genius has realised this possibility, and has decided that the children need to hear the government approved lies truth about them.

From Times of India

LONDON: A new book published in the UK recommends school children as young as seven to “write a letter to a terrorist” to help understand their motives.

Yes because as we all know, their motives are a real mystery to us. We just can’t seem to figure out why they keep killing us.

Maybe if they see the letters from the children, they might finally tell us what their motivation is.

The book, Talking About Terrorism, published weeks before the Manchester Arena attack, describes the indiscriminate mass murder of innocent members of the public as a “type of war.”

Yeah, no shit. It’s a very specific type of war. It’s called “Jihad”, and it has been going on in some form for the past 1400 years. The use of terrorism as a tactic might be different from traditional Jihad, but the goal is exactly the same. To establish a global Caliphate, in which the entire world submits to Islamic domination.

“it’s just a metaphor. It isn’t meant to be taken literally. Islam is a peaceful religion.”

It tells primary age children that terrorists kill people because they believe they are being treated “unfairly and not shown respect”, Daily Express reported.

“It’s just not fair. I left my home country to come live in Europe, and the Europeans won’t change their countries, to be more like the country that I left. I should be allowed to rape women who aren’t covered from head to toe or accompanied by a male family member at all times, and throw gays off the top of roofs, all I want. It’s so unfair and disrespectful, that I’m not allowed do these things, that I’m going to strap a bomb to myself and kill their children. They deserve it.”

In an activity recommended for pupils aged seven to 11, teachers are urged to “invite children to write a letter to a terrorist. If they could ask a terrorist six questions, what would they be?”

  1. Hey Mohammad, why did you come to Europe if you hate it here so much?
  2. Hey Mohammad, why do you want Europe to be more like the shitty country you fled from?
  3. Hey Mohammad, why do you hate gays so much, but not people who have sex with goats?
  4. Hey Mohammad, why do pictures of your prophet enrage you so much?
  5. Hey Mohammad, did you ever consider that maybe your prophet didn’t hear the voice of God? He probably just suffered from schizophrenia, and thought the voices in his head were from God.
  6. Hey Mohammad, what did you think about the time Tesco had pork products in the “Halal” section?


The book, published by Brilliant Publications and containing a foreword by Peter Wanless, the chief executive of The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, a charity campaigning and working in child protection in the UK, has been slammed by critics who say it is potentially dangerous.

Wow, I’m actually impressed. I take back what I said in title of this post. If the UK really had gone “full Sweden”, there wouldn’t be any vocal criticism of this book.

Although countries like Germany, France, and in this case, the UK, put a lot of effort in, Sweden still remains the most cucked country in Europe by far.

Chris McGovern, chairman of the Campaign for Real Education, said the letter task would confuse and potentially upset pupils.

But…but… who cares about upsetting and confusing the children? The real victims are the poor, misunderstood terrorists.

“This a crackpot idea based on the misguided notion that primary school children must engage with, and show ‘respect’ for, religious fanatics who are seeking to kill them.

But of course they have to. Respect is the only possible way to beat the terrorists in the long run. Remember when the Nazis came to power? There were a lot of “bigots” and “Naziphobes”, who wanted to go to war with Germany, just because of the actions of a small minority of radical Nazis. Luckily enough, people chose to engage with the moderate Nazis instead, and a potential second world war was avoided.

“Nazism was a religion of peace. Some radical Nazis misinterpreted extracts from their holy book “Mein Kampf”, and did bad things, but those weren’t the real Nazis. Moderate Nazis condemned their actions, and fortunately, most people were smart enough to see this. #NotAllNazis”

“The primary school classroom is not the place to humanise terrorism by ‘pretend dialogue’.”

 In trying to help children “understand” terrorists’ motives, the book invites sympathy for the killers, critics claim, the report said.
Wow, that sounds like a load of “bigotry” and “Islamophobia” right there. Hopefully, this guy will get a knock on the door in the middle of the night, and get re-educated, until he’s cured of those negative traits. It’s the least we can do, in case any terrorists had their feelings hurt.

Proof that white children don’t matter to the establishment.

This is actually the headline.
This is actually the headline.

This is absolutely unbelievable to read. I’m actually stunned.

“Look sorry lads, we tried our best to cover up what you did to those little white English girls. We’ll try and give you a lenient sentence at least”
“WHAT?!?!? You say this man raped Pakistani children. THROW THE BOOK AT HIM!!!!”

From Daily Mail

A senior judge has ruled a child molester was rightly given a tougher than normal sentence because his victims were Asian and so suffered more from his crimes.

So an “Asian” (read Pakistani Muslim) man in England raping “Asian” children is apparently a more serious crime than if he had raped native born white English children. This is literally what they’re saying.

Jamal Muhammed Raheem-ul-Nasir was jailed for seven years at Leeds Crown Court last year for sex attacks on two girls, aged nine and 14.

But the paedophile took the case to appeal, with his lawyers complaining that his sentence was unfairly inflated and ‘excessive’.

He’s literally claiming that getting a seven year sentence for raping a 9 year old and a 14 year old is excessive. This is what we’re actually supposed to believe. As far as I’m concerned, if we lived in a sane society, he would have been fucking executed for it.

And we'd make sure it was painful as well.
And we’d make sure it was painful as well.

Senior judge Mr Justice Walker has now thrown out those arguments after hearing that the victims’ families feared they would struggle to find future husbands because of the abuse.

So because of their primitive and barbaric culture, which has logic like that, they should get special treatment, over little white girls who come from a more understanding culture? Here’s a thought, why the fuck is that different culture even in Britain. What is the benefit of having them there? And no, saying diversity doesn’t count, unless someone explains why diversity is a good thing (which never ever happens).

The move has been criticised by children’s charity the NSPCC, who insist justice should be blind to the race of victims.

Makes sense to me.

Nasir, 32, was convicted of two counts of sexual assault on a child under 13 and four counts of sexual activity with a child and handed the prison term in December last year.

The judge who jailed him, Sally Cahill QC, specifically said that the fact the victims were Asian had been factored in as an ‘aggravating feature’ when passing sentence.

All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.

She stated that the victims and their families had suffered particular ‘shame’ in their communities because of what had happened to them.

Additionally there were cultural concerns that the girls’ future prospects of being regarded as a good catch for arranged marriages might be damaged.

Lawyers for Nasir, of Liversedge, West Yorkshire, argued at London’s Criminal Appeal Court that his sentence had been unfairly inflated.

I actually think that’s incredible. So 7 years is an “inflated sentence” for raping children. If that’s the case, what is the standard sentence length? I’m actually finding this story hard to comprehend. This is complete insanity.

But their complaints were rejected by Mr Justice Walker, who said: ‘The victims’ fathers were concerned about the future marriage prospects for their daughters.

‘Judge Cahill was having particular regard to the harm caused to the victims by this offending.

‘That harm was aggravated by the impact on the victims and their families within this particular community.’

So because their families and their community aren’t as loving and as understanding as the native white English, they deserve special treatment?

The argument that Ul Nasir was given a longer sentence due to his own ‘ethnic and religious origin’ was based on ‘a misconception’, he added.

Literally trying to claim that his sentence was based on his race, even though his victim was a member of the same race, and when other members of his race, rape children from the indigenous white English race, they get a more lenient sentence. What a shameless chancer this prick is.

‘The judge who tried the case was in the best position to determine the correct sentence.’

Mr Justice Walker, sitting with Lord Justice Laws and Mr Justice Mitting, at London’s Royal Courts of Justice,, concluded: ‘There is no basis for saying that Judge Cahill adopted an incorrect starting point. This application for leave to appeal against sentence must be refused.’

I think she fucked up royally, not because she gave him a harsh (well in comparison to the incredibly lenient standard) sentence, but because her motivation for doing so was based on the race of the victims.

Why is this woman a judge?
Why is this woman a judge?

But an NSPCC spokesman said: ‘British justice should operate on a level playing field and children need to be protected irrespective of cultural differences.

‘Regardless of race, religion, or gender, every child deserves the right to be safe and protected from sexual abuse, and the courts must reflect this. It is vital that those who commit these hideous crimes are punished to the full limit of the law.’ 

This summarises the problem quite well. The problem isn’t that he got a more severe sentence because for having non-white victims. The problem is that people just like him are getting lesser sentences for having white ones. What should be done is to give harsh and draconian sentences across the board for these types of crimes, regardless of the race of the victims.

Why isn’t that obvious to people?

“Real Vampires” need our compassion.

The typical 21st century vampire. “I vant…to suck…your dick”

I can always rely on The Guardian to make me lose faith in the idea that this world is even worth saving. Check out this headline from last week.

Actually, it's quite obvious. First you assess whether they're being genuine or not in their claims. If they are being genuine, you confine them to a mental institution seeing as they may very well attack someone. If they aren't being genuine, you tell them to grow the fuck up and stop being such an attention seeker.

I’m hoping this is just an example of Poe’s law in action, and is in fact just a parody of how ridiculous things have gotten. With The Guardian though, I just don’t buy it. This very same newspaper just a few days ago also wrote that the grandchildren of holocaust survivors need help because they have somehow inherited their grandparent’s trauma because the experience altered the DNA and breast milk of survivors. Of course, what that really means is that anyone who is actually old enough to possibly have been in a Nazi camp, are dying off now, and they need to keep the gravy train going forever.

How things seem to be going.
How things seem to be going.

Funny how, us Irish haven’t inherited the trauma of our own ancestors suffering. Nor, do I ever hear cases of of descendants of WW1 soldiers inheriting the trauma of trench warfare. Or the descendants of the survivors of various Communist atrocities like the Holodomor or the Cambodian Genocide, etc., inheriting that trauma. I wonder why that is?

Anyway, I digress. I didn’t mean to go off topic so much. Back to the original topic then.

From The Guardian

“Real vampires” are people who think they must feed on the energies of others, either physically or psychically, for their own wellbeing. Feeding takes a variety of forms. Some will drink blood from consenting human donors, others will rely on physical contact. For some, being in a crowded room is enough to recharge their batteries.

Sounds like some kind of parasitic entity.

What happens when a “real vampire” needs to get counselling, or go to a social worker? A recent study explores the barriers vampires must overcome when they come into contact with members of the “helping professions” – psychology, social work and so on.

Perhaps in spite of itself, the study also illustrates the contradictory nature of our communal moral reflection when it comes to issues of identity.

The study’s authors identify two beliefs held by helping professionals that are central to a person’s reticence to “come out of the coffin” and disclose their “real vampirism”.

First, that vampires aren’t actually real.

No shit.

And second, that identifying as a vampire is indicative of a deeper mental health issue.

No shit again.

To deal with the first belief, the authors argue that, to the “real vampires” themselves, their self-identity is indeed very real: “Real vampires believe that they do not choose their vampiric condition; they are born with it, somewhat akin to sexual orientation.”

Wow very much akin to sexual orientation. How could us hate filled vampirephobes be filled with such irrational hatreds, by not treating their vampire identity with the same respect we treat people’s sexual orientation? We really have so much to answer for as a society, and we should probably reassess everything we know about the world, in order to ensure we don’t accidentally upset these special snowflakes.

At first sight, the comparison seems laughable, if not deeply offensive to those who have fought – and continue to fight – to have their orientations respected and afforded equal moral, legal, and political rights. But still, I suspect many would hesitate to give public voice to their scepticism.

No, it really is laughable.

This is because our scepticism rubs up against liberal demands to tolerate a broad range of different beliefs and choices. And it’s hard to have it both ways.

Exactly, we live in a totalitarian nightmare, where so called “tolerant” people demand that everyone else be tolerant of the most ridiculous and insane bullshit imaginable. This is because political correctness is to modern times, what Christianity was to Medieval times. Back then, what the church said was law. The vast majority were blind followers, who accepted everything without question. Anyone who went against what the church said was at best ridiculed and bullied by the masses, and at worse, was executed as a heretic. Nowadays, executions might not happen, but anyone who goes against the gospel of political correctness is likely to lose friends, be verbally harassed for their views, and may even lose employment, due to pressure being directed against their employer by the purveyors of politically correct dogma.

See my point?
See my point?

It even has gotten to the point where those who follow the religion of political correctness, perform the same actions that they ridicule the Catholic church for doing. The church was known for ignoring scientific facts that contradicted their world view (for example, the idea of the earth revolving around the sun). Today, people ignore statistics on interracial crime or will support fake rape allegations even when they have already been proven false, because they are blinded by their ideological views, and will not accept any evidence that runs counter to this ideology. Anyone who proves their world view wrong is hunted down like the heretics of olden times, and punished for their heresy.

The reason it is hard is because we lack a coherent, objective framework that builds on an amalgamation of historical, cultural, philosophical, artistic, and scientific accounts of what it means to be a human being, and what it is to live in human community.

Instead, society determines legitimate forms of self-determination or identity on the basis of consensus. If sufficient numbers of people demand recognition, they are rewarded it, but until then, they won’t be treated legitimately. People have the right to be bigots, depending on who they’re being bigoted toward.

So does that mean that for hundreds of thousands of years, an arbitrarily chosen consensus of “normal people” have been oppressing these poor vampires that have apparently always existed and most certainly aren’t just attention seeking weirdos using the internet to get said attention? Wow, how can we sleep at night, knowing how evil we have all been?

Hate Crime
Hate Crime

In some sense, vampirism reveals the difficulties of human self-definition in a time of tolerance. Few are prepared to accept vampirism as an authentic mode of being, but, having done away with most traditions of objective value, it’s hard to mount a sustained critique of the pseudo-undead.

The study recommends that helping professionals step around this problem altogether; what is required is for therapists and the like “to be open, nonjudgmental, and sensitive to human diversity”.

Translation: Mollycoddle them.

I guess I can kind of understand this logic. These people are obviously mentally ill, and there’s no point unnecessarily upsetting them too much. You never know what the consequences could be.


So a social worker who cannot embrace “real vampirism” can no more support a vampire than can a bondage fetishist be supported by a puritan therapist: personal biases will cloud the ability for a “therapeutic alliance” – a trusting relationship between client and therapist – to form.

The therapeutic alliance is central to the success of mental health interventions. It is also predicated on the belief that clients do not need “fixing”, but rather need skills to be able to manage a range of different environmental, personal, and psychological factors.

This explains the study’s underlying premise. Namely, that therapists are not, nor do they want to be, responsible for correcting false beliefs about a person’s identity except in extreme cases. Doing so undermines the professional’s ability to administer care and is beyond the purview of the therapeutic alliance that informs their profession.

This makes a lot of sense. The therapy room is not the place to “enculture” someone.

Reading this, I can’t help but ask the obvious question. What happened to all these “real vampires” in less compassionate times? I mean surely, if this is a real condition and not just people seeking attention, it must have existed long before the recent vampire fad, and therapists must have had to deal with people like this just as often back in the day…right?

It’s important to note this, because there is a subtle tendency to see particularly bizarre beliefs as being pathological, as if they demanded psychological attention. All things being equal, “real vampires” might not be suffering from a psychological condition at all.

You’re probably right. For every “real vampire” who has a psychological condition, there’s probably another who just does it for attention, or think it makes them special in some way.

Nor, however, do I think that they are an ontologically and metaphysically distinct group of beings. It seems more likely to me that they are the unintended and unwitting victims of years of value-neutral education than anything else.

For instance, back in 1943 the British author CS Lewis was lamenting how a new schoolbook, ostensibly about grammar, really educated students in the view that all beliefs and attitudes were mere feelings, immune from moral evaluation.

This is ironic, he noted, because all the while his community were desperate for well-formed, virtuous citizens. Instead, Lewis wrote:

We make men without chests and expect from them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst.

An entire intellectual system has been constructed on shaky foundations. Today, following Lewis, we might say that we are shocked to find vampires in our midst.

The shrill insistence that education not impose particular values on young people has some intellectual basis, but it tends to leave them stranded without a guide in the difficult task of self-knowledge and understanding. No surprises that it occasionally goes awry.

The genuine belief that one is a vampire – and I’m sure there are other such tendencies in the dark, strange, pseudo-enlightened places of the internet – isn’t the responsibility of psychologists to correct.

Rather, I think it’s the task of teachers, and those responsible for the education system to provide not only knowledge, but formation. At the very least the lack of formative education is likely to be a major part of how identities like “real vampirism” form in the first place.

In this case, the solution isn’t – as the authors of the study argue – to be careful not to proliferate traditional vampire mythology – garlic, stakes, coffins and all the rest – which is likely to lead to microaggressions that could traumatise “real vampires”.

Rather, it’s to recognise that the quest for self-identity and meaning is one that is best done with some guidance.

I don’t really know how to respond to the rest of that. To be honest, it actually confuses me to no end. I’ll just leave it at that.

I wonder what kind of nonsense I’m going to read next?

British scientist: “Lets outlaw fat-shaming”

One of the most annoying things about political correctness is that it seemingly has no end in sight. It doesn’t matter how much more tolerant and open minded we as a society become, these people are always going to find some new “victim group” that needs protection, and demanding that we wrap them up in cotton wool. In a lot of prior cases (sexism, homophobia, racism etc), the victim group was being discriminated against for something they had no control over. The black guy couldn’t help that he wasn’t white. The gay guy couldn’t help that he was attracted to other guys instead of girls. The woman couldn’t help that she wasn’t a man. I can understand completely why people wanted to stand up for these groups because they were being unfairly treated for something they couldn’t change.

Good idea Mr. American Bear, but next time might I suggest getting off the scooter and walking to the bottle, for added effect?
Good idea Mr. American Bear, but next time might I suggest getting off the scooter and walking to the bottle, for added benefit?

Although, I will say that I think social justice has gone a bit too far in certain cases (radical feminists who want to oppress men, rather than being equal, people claiming that a white cop killing black thug in self defence is racist, people demanding that we allow biological males to play on girls sports teams, because they feel like girls on the inside etc), I do at least acknowledge that these groups were genuinely disenfranchised, and that they needed and deserved to be treated better than they were.

Good, you're drinking diet coke and you're actually walking. Next step, try eating better food.
Good, you’re drinking diet coke and you’re actually walking. Next step, try eating better food.

Now however, the social justice movement has become a total parody of itself. Now, we are expected to go to ridiculous lengths to make sure we don’t offend anybody. The latest idea is to make it illegal to “discriminate” against overweight people. Now let me just make this clear. I don’t believe in bullying people and I understand that weight can be a sensitive issue. At the same time, I’m also aware of the obvious reality that excess weight can be very dangerous, and can shorten lives. In the Western world (most notably America, though other countries are catching up) obesity and the illnesses related to it, have drastically increased in the past few decades. While I don’t think being abusive is right, I do think acknowledging extremly unhealthy behaviour is important. As far as I’m concerned, encouraging someone to become healthy is more important than not upsetting them.

Remember, it doesn't have to be this way.
Remember, it doesn’t have to be this way.

Unfortunately, not everyone agrees with me.

From The Express

Dr Sarah Jackson suggested laws banning discrimination based on age, sex or race should be extended to cover people who were overweight.

Researchers behind a landmark study into weight discrimination found those who were subjected to jibes about their size were dramatically more likely to suffer from depression. 

The renowned psychologist made the claim following two studies into the links between weight discrimination and quality of life. 

Researchers argued that poking fun at fat people was often seen as socially acceptable, but the ‘fattist’ taunts led to a drop in quality of life.

I’m sure plenty of people would feel bad about their weight regardless. I remember that I used to be heavier than I wanted to be (I wasn’t obese, but I was definitely overweight). I didn’t get picked on for it, but I was always aware that I weighed more than I should and I felt ashamed of it. Eventually, I took the initiative and started eating better and exercising, and sure enough, I lost weight. Even then, I don’t see why jibes are a bad thing (unless it gets to the point of harassment and bullying). The point is to encourage you to take action to get healthier. It’s just like how we try to discourage smoking by forcing them to do so out in the cold, and by increasing the costs to do so through excessive taxation. Sometimes, we have to be cruel to be kind.

And according to this 2004 study, around 300,000 Americans die from obesity related illnesses per year. Who knows how much higher its gotten in the 11 years since?
And according to this 2004 study, around 300,000 Americans die from obesity related illnesses per year. Who knows how much higher its gotten in the 11 years since?

The study of more than 5,000 people by University College London calls for a major rethink of how fat people are treated in the UK. 

In the survey, participants were asked how often they encounter discrimination in their daily lives, including being threatened or harassed. 

Some said they experienced abuse almost every day, although researchers said the vast majority rarely or never experienced discrimination. 

So the vast majority don’t experience discrimination? Then why are we acting as if this is a major issue then?

“In the United Kingdom, the Equality Act 2010 legally protects individuals from discrimination on the basis of age, sex, race, disability, religion or beliefs, sexual orientation, marital status, pregnancy, or gender reassignment; making it clear that discriminatory behaviour of this nature is not to be accepted,” said Dr Jackson, lead author of the report.

“However, our results indicate that discriminatory experiences contribute to poorer psychological wellbeing in individuals with obesity, but there are currently no laws prohibiting weight discrimination. 

“This might send the message to people that weight discrimination is socially acceptable.”

So essentially what you’re saying is that people are going to discriminate against obese people unless we have explicit laws forbidding them from doing so. Any proof? I could see them not hiring an obese person for a job they wouldn’t be physically capable of doing (for example, would you hire an obese person as a personal trainer in a gym) or if they were providing a service that the size of the person made impossible to accommodate (for example, asking an obese person to buy two seats in a plane because they can’t fit into one). I don’t look at that as being discrimination. I just see that as acknowledging reality. Should we pretend that an obese person can take up the same space on a plane as an average sized person, or pretend that an obese person should be training people in the gym, just so we don’t hurt their feelings?

Well that shut me up.
Well that shut me up.

Experts said examples of obese people being discriminated against also included being treated disrespectfully and receiving poor service in shops.

Anecdotal evidence. For all we know, these people were just pricks who acted like assholes to the staff, and then when the staff didn’t give them great service in return, they just assumed it was because of their weight.

Al Bundy would insult the customers for their weight, but they were bitches who treated him like shit, so they deserved it anyway.
Al Bundy would insult the customers for their weight, but they were bitches who treated him like shit, so they deserved it anyway.

Earlier research into ‘fat shaming’ found making people feel bad about their weight had no impact on their ability to slim down.

In fact, those who reported experiencing weight discrimination gained more weight than those who did not.

And plenty of people who do end up losing weight do so because they feel bad about their weight. In fact, isn’t that the reason why everyone who loses weight does so? They feel bad about their weight, so they take action to change that so they won’t feel bad anymore. I really can’t think of anyone who is overweight who decides that they feel good about their weight, so they’ll take action to lose weight.

Dr Jackson concluded that other methods should be used to encourage weight loss, but the most recent study goes further in calling for recognition of fattism as a significant problem.

It is a significant problem, but not for the reason you think it is.

Professor Jane Wardle, co-author of the latest report, said: “Combined with our previous work showing that weight discrimination does not encourage weight loss, we can see that weight discrimination is part of the obesity problem and not the solution. 

“Weight bias has been documented not only among the general public but also among health professionals; and many obese patients report being treated disrespectfully by doctors because of their weight. 

“Everyone, including doctors, should stop blaming and shaming people for their weight, and offer support, and where appropriate, treatment.”

If you’re looking for a doctor who isn’t going to put the blame were it belongs (on you) for your obesity, then you’re not looking for a doctor at all. You’re looking for a quack. The doctor’s job is to to help you get healthy, and if that means telling you that you need to lose weight in order to do so, a proper doctor will do that, no matter how much it may hurt your ego. Accepting obesity isn’t going to solve the problem. It’s just going to result in more people seeing it as a lifestyle choice, rather than what it is, a serious medical epidemic.

Is this what you're looking for? Because I'm afraid I've got some bad news...
Is this what you’re looking for? Because I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news…

But outspoken hypnotherapist Steve Miller has rejected the findings.

Speaking to, he said political correctness around obesity was making people fatter.

“Of course I do not advocate bullying fat people, but letting them know they are dangerously fat and giving them some constructive fat shaming if needed is an absolute must if we are to slim people down. 

“The truth hurts but it can also save lives.  We need to tackle fat head on and trust me, no-one loves a fat person like I do.

“Fat people can do something about their weight, they may hide behind excuses but they’re more than capable of changing their lifestyles to shed the pounds.”

At least the article ends with someone who talks sense.

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.

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.

‘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.

Northern Ireland Bakery’s refusal to make a cake with a message supporting gay marriage. My thoughts.

To start, let me just make this clear. I have nothing against gay marriage. If two consenting adults who love each other wish to enter into a legal union based on that love, why the fuck should I object to it? Live and let live, that’s my motto.

Recently, a bakery in Northern Ireland was asked to bake a cake featuring the Sesame Street characters, Bert and Ernie. The baker agreed to do so. However, an additional request was soon made, to include a message of “Support Gay Marriage”. The baker, a devout Christian, didn’t feel comfortable doing this, as it went against his religious beliefs and so offered the customer a refund on his order. He didn’t refuse to serve the customer because of his sexuality. He didn’t abuse him in any way. He simply declined to endorse a political message that he was uncomfortable with.

Bert and Ernie, pictured with their rubber ducky.

Yes, that's more like it. Bert and Ernie, gay icons.
Yes, that’s more like it. Bert and Ernie, gay icons.

Rather than allowing the free market to take its course and simply taking his business elsewhere, the customer decided to take legal action and get the equality commission involved, because his feelings were hurt.  This is absolutely pathetic and was almost certainly a set up from the get go. I find it hard to believe that the customer, a gay rights activist wasn’t already aware of the bakery owner’s beliefs. Instead of being the bigger person he has deliberately and maliciously engaged in a campaign of bullying and intimidation against a family run small business, all to draw attention to his cause and to force his own beliefs on others.

Evelyn Collins, the demonic looking chief executive of the Northern Ireland Equality Commission. I think she bears a striking resemblance to the creeper from Jeepers Creepers.

They say there’s no such thing as bad publicity, but this time, I’m seriously starting to wonder. I disagree with the bakers stance on gay marriage, but if the choice is between allowing him the freedom to have his stance, or living in an Orwellian nightmare in which thoughtcrime is punished, I’m damn sure going to support his right to an opinion.

I also can’t help but wonder. If this incident can cause me, a person who supports gay marriage to sympathise more with the other side in this case, what effect would it have on those who are already against it, or those who are on the fence? My guess, it will only serve to radicalise the anti-gay marriage side more, as opposed to winning support for it.


On a closing note, here’s some food for thought. Isn’t religion also protected under the equality commission (I’m just guessing now, as I’m not 100% sure on the laws up North). If so, couldn’t the bakery owner counter sue the customer for discriminating against him based on his religion?
