DOUGLAS MURRAY’S REGRET

“Day by day the continent of Europe is not only changing but is losing any possibility of a soft landing in response to such change. An entire political class have failed to appreciate that many of us who live in Europe love the Europe that was ours…….if they do change it many of us will regret this quietly. Others will regret it less quietly.”

I have just finished reading Douglas Murray’s , “Strange Death of Europe” , and the above paragraph , which comes at the very end of the book , sums up what for me is the problem with this book. Murray does not care , or at least does not care enough. He will , in his own words , “regret it quietly” and presumably just forget the victims and the damage done , not just to the victims of the last few years but all those victims to come. Murray’s language throughout the book is civil and temperate with one glaring exception when he uses the word ‘ rancid ‘ in reference to the ‘far right’ or at least certain sections of the ‘far right’.  ” It is also true that these parties ( Pegida/EDL) include people with rancid political views. But so too , it must be noted , do mainstream parties of the political left and right “. While this statement may seem quite reasonable it is significant that he makes it when speaking of Pegida and the EDL and not on any of the numerous occasions he quotes Angela Merkel and a host of other people and groups. He does not refer to any of the mainstream characters that litter his book as ‘criminal’ in spite of the ample evident that he supplies in his book that that is exactly what they are.

This is an interesting and very readable book and it will , I’m sure , ‘red pill’ some people but I fear that in the long run it may do more harm than good – like all those slick YouTube videos that entertain us far more that educate us and always avoid stating the very things that really do need to be put into words…..Things , sometimes NEED to be said for them to become real in the minds of people. Sometimes it really is necessary to call a spade a spade and tell people in plain english things which they may not wish to hear or contemplate. I suppose you could say that this is a very entertaining book – but that is the last thing we need just now. We are being entertained to death via YouTube and books like this , perhaps literally, while in the real world everything is going to hell at an ever faster pace. We need men and women of action in these times and not books  and perhaps if we find such men and women of action we may live to write great books in the future…..We need the ugly brutal truth told in all its ugliness. We need it rammed down our throats. The time for civility and reason is over.

A PARTY AT THE END OF THE WORLD

On the day following the Orlando , Florida shootings in june 2016 Mark Steyn made a broadcast which , for me , is one of the finest I have ever heard.  It has that intimate and very personal quality which , for the most part , radio alone seems to be able to capture. I don’t know where or by what means this was originally recorded or if it was originally commissioned by The Henry Jackson Society , but whatever the back story it is for me a classic.  It says everything that needs to be said about that night in Orlando  –  and more , much more about our own dilemma at this time……

A MESSAGE FROM UKIP

If you a member or supporter of Stand Up To Racism this is no barrier to becoming a member of UKIP. The fact that members of this group regularly abuse , intimidate and bully black people , brown people , white people , immigrants and gays etc is not an issue.  If you are a member of Hope Not Hate and have bullied , abused , intimidated , slandered and marginalized black people , immigrants , gays , moderate muslims and ex muslims it is also not a problem. If you are a member or supporter of Antifa and in that capacity have bullied and slandered decent people of all colours and ethnicities calling them scum and other such names then put your mind to rest – We in UKIP don’t have a problem with people joining from Antifa either . If you support the aims , objectives , values and practices of any of the above groups then put your mind at rest – We really honestly don’t care.

If you are a member of the media and have deliberately lied to the people of Britain and perhaps put their lives and liberties at risk , if you have criminally slandered those who defend and speak for the poor and marginalized and forgotten of Britain , well that is your private business. If you are a member of a mainstream political party which has resolutely refused to represent the poor and marginalized in society – if you have spread hatred and bigotry against the poor , the weak , the marginalized and have characterised  them as racists and fascists and bigots ….well , don’t give it a thought.  None of these things will bar you from membership of our party.

On the other hand however we don’t just let anyone in.  If you are , or ever have been , a member of the English Defence League then you are not welcome. If you live in a poor deprived community where thousands and tens of thousands of children and young girls have been raped , trafficked and abused because they are white and vulnerable and you in turn have responded to this by joining or supporting a street movement to stop it then  we don’t want you.   There is no place in UKIP for people like you.

 

COMMUNITY AND COHESION IN BIRMINGHAM MAY 2018

“The city is also very diverse, with 42% of the population being from an ethnic minority background, reflecting the city’s rich and varied cultural heritage. Birmingham is a “super-diverse” city. Academic research suggests that there are people from nearly 200 countries who have made Birmingham their home . The 2011 Census revealed that 42.1% classified themselves within an ethnic group other than white British, compared to 30% in 2001, a rise of 12%. Birmingham is soon to become a majority minority city. The demographic makeup of Birmingham’s young people has also changed significantly over recent years and is becoming increasingly diverse. For example, according to the 2011 census over 60% of the under 18 population is now from a non-white British background, compared to around 44% in 2001. Ethnic diversity can bring many benefits such as transnational trading links and high levels of cultural resource. Birmingham has benefited from its diverse migrant communities who have settled in the city and successfully contributed to its economic vitality, becoming leaders in education, medicine, sports, arts and business and providing employment opportunities to local people. Our demographic landscape is increasingly becoming ethnically and socially ‘super diverse’, which means a greater understanding of the changes in cultural norms, identities and social shifts in how we live work and learn is needed. Community cohesion is an approach that enables us to respond to the wide ranging and kaleidoscope of identities, rather than simply focussing on a white majority and small number of ethnic minority identities.”

The above is a short extract from the Draft Community Cohesion  Strategy of May 2018 . Don’t waste time reading it as you have heard it all before. In a statement by Birmingham City Council on community cohesion you will find the following –

  • no promotion or unwitting support is given to individuals or groups that promote and propagate messages of hate and intolerance
  • ensure appropriate linkage to the Prevent programme where appropriate
  • ensure all schools and educational settings promote our shared British values
  • challenge illegal and harmful cultural attitudes and practices towards women such as Female Genital Mutilation, Forced Marriage and Honour-Based Violence
  • actively promote opportunities for cross-community interactions in order to strengthen relationships and common bonds between communities of different backgrounds and isolate extreme voices
  • encourage communities to report incidents of hate crime including anti-Semitism, Islamophobia or homophobic behaviour.

All you need to know here is that Birmingham has one of the highest rates of FGM in the UK so that will tell you what they mean by ‘challenging’ the issue.

 

 

OUR DEMOCRACY IS DEAD

 

1Vi61wRS_400x400

Our democracy is dead and left-wing fascism has replaced it. Islam now utterly dominates and the press, the police, and the government have fallen in to line. If we are to survive, with any freedoms intact, we must fight our own government, and our own press. We have an enormous task, but we also have the greatest weapon of all – the truth about the teachings of Islam. Nothing can take that away. AMW  June 2018.    Jihad Watch.

THE JORDAN PETERSON ROAD SHOW

Jordan Peterson , Sam Harris and Douglas Murray will be doing a gig in London and Dublin in mid July 2018. Peterson who’s C4 interview with Kathy Newman has been watched by over 10 million people is the star of the show – and this , of course , is the point . Its show business folks !

I have watched Peterson and Murray for several years now as well as many other Youtubers but I have been watching them less and less in recent times and have come to the conclusion that they may be doing more harm than good.  Murray , to his credit has , if not defended the EDL then at least put them and their street protest movement in some sort of informed context but he is very much the exception and even he has a certain attitude towards working class people which I , as a working class person , find  offensive and indicative of prejudice on Murray’s part. But compared to the rest of them he is quite radical and serious and fair in his analysis of political events. But it really gets my goat when people like Dave Rubin speak of the creation of an intellectual elite of which he himself of course is a member.  Give me a woman like Anne Marie Waters any day of the week.

If I am looking for wisdom I will look to political parties such as the For Britain Movement and if I want to be entertained I will listen to Elvis.
