Canadian University Holds ‘White Privilege’ Conference

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.”

― C.S. Lewis, God in the Dock: Essays on Theology (Making of Modern Theology)

In an event that marks the latest step in Canada’s descent into collective insanity, Ryerson University held the nation’s first “white privilege” conference this month. Hundreds of academics, media luvvies, professional hand wringers and all the usual suspects turned up at the Toronto-based institution to indulge in an orgy of hated, bigotry and racism aimed at “white people. (nobody defined exactly who was being hated, as I’ve always said, no human being ever was truly white, no human being ever was truly black.

The week-long event, which took place from May 9th to May 12th, was largely organised by Ryerson’s first vice-president of equity and community inclusion Denise O’Neil Green. Apparently Ms O’Neil Green does not include white people in her definitions of inclusive or equality. Oh well, I guess her degree is not in English language.

Green told The Toronto Star her definition of “white privilege” was “an unearned benefit or ‘perk’ that one receives simply because of their skin colour. (What, like the benefits and advantages handed to blacks because of their skin colour? – how many white kids get affirmative action uplifts on their exam grades?)

A more multi-layered way of looking at it is that white privilege operates in terms of a system that benefits particular groups over others”, she added.

Ah, now it’s clear, being shat on by a system that favours minorities is a privilege.

Another well known figure who took part in the event was Rinaldo Walcott, (why do all these paskudniaks have silly names?) an associate professor at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, who has been an enthusiastic supporter of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement and participates in the “Faculty for Palestine” group.

I often wonder if these over educated, reality deficient half wits understand that however wrong the treatment of Palestinians by Israel is (and what has gone on there is absolutely criminal), for almost a thousand years before the creation of Israel, first under the Islamic Caliphate, then The Ottoman Empire, the Palestinians were doing it to the Jews.

When asked about his response to people who say white privilege does not exist, Walcott dismissed criticism saying that white working class people have an easier time progressing up the socio-economic ladder than black people or indigenous people. Nothing to do with their being smarter or harder working then.

White Privilege Now Inculdes The Privilege Of Being Fired For being White
Its should be obvious by now that the politically correct left, insaniac sociopaths that they are, have only one emotion at their disposal; hate. Bizarrely the hatered of these predominantly white, middle class people, while of themselves, is mostly racist in nature but directed at members of their own race.

Twilight Of The Roman God?

French president Emmanuel Macron as Jupiter (Source: https://staticmediapart.fr/etmagine/)

When Emmanuel Macron came from nowhere to be elected President of France
following a landslide victory a year ago, he pissed people off almost immediately by
telling journalists he would not answer their questions because they were not smart enough to understand his thoughts. Shortly after that he declared he would rule “in the style of a Roman god,” and compared himself to Jupiter, the Roman equivalent of Zeus or Odin. It’s no wonder then that just a year later the wheels have come off the bandwagon and the man, who was once seen as the saviour and deliverer of his country, a symbol of hope and renewal, seems to have turned into a source of mirth, widely ridiculed by the French for his grandiose posturing and inept efforts to deliver on his promises.

In early May 2017, Macron won the French presidential elections with 66.1 percent of the vote, one of the biggest landslide results in the history of the French Fifth Republic. A month later, his party, ‘Republic on the Move’ (LREM), scored another impressive victory by winning a majority of seats in the French parliament. It should be noted that these results were largely due to a stitch up, with France close to ruin after the disastrous socialist policies of former president Francois Holland, and Marine le Pen’s Front National party topping the polls only months before the election, the socialists and Gaullists (conservatives) combined to advise supporters to vote Macron, because Le Pen had to be stopped and the crumbling dream of a federal European superstate preserved at all costs.

Under the boy wonder’s stewardship it is now becoming clear those costs will be far greater than anyone imagined. Macron, while supporting the USA’s military interventions in the middle east, has thrown his weight behind more immigration and more Islamification for Europe, and following strong performances by Eurosceptic parties in German, Austrian and Italian elections, combined with growing resistance to the authoritarian attitude of Brussels towards member states, has called for acceleration of the push to political integration of the EU member states.

Some of Macron’s reforms so far have attempted to revive the French economy and increase the country’s competitive advantage on the international stage by targeting labor laws and social benefits. However measures such as a public sector pay freeze and making it easier for workers to be fired while also capping redundancy payouts have been disastrous for Marcon’s standing in popularity polls. The changes have also led to Marcon being dubbed The President for The Rich. The benefits and subsidies system is seen as  the foundation of France’s social and economic structure, and is guarded by powerful trade unions.

The reforms were also aimed at reducing the country’s high unemployment rate but as Macron insists on speeding up the admission of unskilled, illiterate migrants from the third world, it seems he is trying to solve one unemployment problem and simultaneously importing another.

A former Goldman Sachs investment banker, which was always going to ensure the left treated his every move with suspicion, Macron’s policies also angered students to the extent that they blocked several educational facilities across France, including the famous Sorbonne, in response to the government’s plans to introduce admission criteria and rank young people who apply to universities.

Meanwhile the powerful rail workers union began calling rolling rail strikes, which have severely disrupted train services throughout the country, with the goal of forcing Macron to rethink his plan for a major overhaul of state rail operator SNCF.

In the face of rising discontent with his government among all sectors of French society, Macron has maintained a god – like remoteness from public opinion as he drives ahead with a program of reforms which will prepare France for the transition to a province of Federal Europe.

His own party, however, which he formed only a year before the election as a stop Le Pen option when it became clear the traditional parties could not win, still accuse Macron of infringing upon worker’s rights and doing favors for corporate “bosses” at the cost of others.

The Birth Of Cultural Marxism

the daily stirrer
Karl Marx

Over the past week politicians, academics along with showbiz and media luvvies have been falling over themselves to celebrate the 150th Anniversay of Karl Marx. When we consider the misery inflicted on humanity by supporters of his ideology we really must ask why this stupid man is celebrated rather than being demonised.

Wherever the economic and social dogmas or Marxism have become part of a government program the results have been disastrous. Dissidents and free thinkers, members of religious groups and political opponents have been slaughtered while innocents have died by the million in famines and epidemics, they result of a politcal ideology that has no understanding of human nature causing the infrastucture to grind to a halt.

And yet people continue to advocate Marxism as a solution to the world’s problems, claiming: “It wasn’t done properly in the Soviet Union, Communist China, Castro’s Cuba, Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge, Vietnam, East Germany, Hungary, Poland etc. Do they mean I wonder, that for Marxism to work there needs to be more government control, more social engineering, more curtailment of civil rights and suppression of individual freedom.

It has always been a priniciple of this blog and my other publications that we support the rule of law. Once aspect of the law which is not obeing observed by governments and law enforcement agencies is the one defined over 2000 years ago by Roman orator and philosopher Marcus Tullius Cicero, who put it like this:
“Since our ancestors came from the hills to live in civilised communities it has been understood there can only be one law which must apply equally to everybody.

What Cicero was warning Romans against was the possible return of dictators who would place themselves and their supporters above the law.

In recent decades we have seen this principle abandoned as left wing activists who claim they are campaigning against racism, sexism, homophobia, and Islamophobia but are really working to advance the agenda of cultural Marxism, have demanded the law be applied differently to some groups within society. In fact while these people constantly whine about racism and have succeeded in distorting the law to such an extent that the mildest adverse comment about about the black or Islamic community has become a ‘hate crime’, it appears that members of those protected groups are being given immunity from far more serious crimes than calling people rude names.

Here’ an exemplary article from AltNewsMedia.net illustrating how the politically correct obsessions of Cultural Marxism have distorted policing and the principle of equality before the law.

China’s Oil Futures Market Gains Momentum

“WTF has China’s new oil futures market to do with us Minds punters?” you might well ask.

It is in fact going to affect us all not just commodities traders, oil speculators and hedge fund managers. The thing is the Chinese (and their BFFs The Russians and Iranians did not just set up this venture because they fancied dabbling in the oil trade.

The launch of the gold backed Petroyouan on the Shanghai financial markets is the culmination of several years manoeuvreing by China and its allies to create a rival trading system to the Petrodollar which has dominated international trade for over forty years. I reported on the news HERE and in several other posts.

Few people are aware of how reliant the US economy has become on the position of the US$ as the global reserve currency. This is because mainstream media never reports on it and TV pundits dare not mention it for fear of losing their lucrative gigs as talking heads on TV. I have talked about it since the very beginning, when Saddam Hussein decided he didn’t need the Petrodollar, modern technology could trade his oil for any currency he fancied. And we all know what happened to him.

Nothing will change overnight, or next month or for several months, but gradually we will see a further shift of economic power from west to east. And that will affect prices, jobs, our standards of living and much more

War On Free Speech Killing Comedy?

 

Sophie Passmann (image: Twitter)

German comedian Sophie Passmann has become probably the first person to have a tweet deleted for being funny under Germany’s new online hate speech law, which is one of the strictest ‘hate’ laws in Europe, although it does not prohibit Muslim Imans from calling on their followers to kill all infidels

Fraulien Passman commented: “There shouldn’t be a law against bad jokes, because that would mean that half the comedians in Germany wouldn’t be allowed on stage.”

Some worry that such laws  have an adverse effect on freedom of speech and thus curtail important civil rights. But others, mostly the snowflake generation, contend that the law, which came into force at the start of this year, is a step in the right direction. I wonder do these people understand how closely their behaviour resembles that of the 17th century Puritans, the people who banned Christmas, music, dancing, and thoroughly disapproved of laughter.

So what did Sophie Passmann do to trigger the snowflakes? Well it wasn’t very funny but it certainly wasn’t offensive. A bit of background is necessary first:

Passmann is a 24-year-old comedian who lives in Cologne, host to a large immigrant community and consequently the place where racial tensions run highest. Every New Year’s Eve Sophie becomes the butt of her friends’ jokes because of one of Germany’s most enduring year-end traditions: the airing of “Dinner for One” across German television. A British sketch originally, it’s about the 90th birthday party of an Englishwoman named Miss Sophie who has outlived all her friends. So her butler makes his way around the dinner table, impersonating each of the guests.

“New Year’s Eve is terrible for a person called Sophie,” says Ms. Passmann. “My friends think it’s funny to call me Miss Sophie all night.” So this year she shot back. On the day the NetzDG law went into effect, she posted a tweet at 9 a.m. that played on the idea that immigrants are destroying German culture: “As long as it’s a tradition in Germany to watch ‘Dinner for One,’ refugees can totally come to Germany and destroy our culture.”

It’s not her best joke, as she is the fist to admit, but it should have been obvious that it was humor. As far as the new puritans are concerned it is unacceptable to mention immigrants or Muslims in any humourous context. By the evening Passman had received multiple notifications from Twitter that users found it offensive, and by nightfall the company had removed it.

Some people may ask why should bad taste be acceptable in humour. My argument is that not only should be acceptable in humour, it is absolutely essential as a tool for puncturing the bubbles of pomposity and self righteousness with which those who would impose their moral prejudices on the whole world like to surround themselves.

Petro-yuan: China To Launch Renminbi As Reserve Currency & Take Down Petro-dollar

China’s launch of a Yuan-backed oil futures market could shatter the US dollar dominance of the crude oil market, a goal China and Russia, with support from, Iran, have been working towards for at least five years. The US dollar will not give up the top spot easily however so we can expect interesting times ahead for business and trade.

The long awaited yuan-backed crude oil futures market was launched at the end of last month in Shanghai. China is the world’s biggest oil consumer, with eyes on rival benchmarks Brent and WTI as well as the US currency. Beijing sees the US dollar dominated oil market as standing in the way of it’s becoming the world’s largest economy.

Trading of the new oil futures contracts for September settlement started on the Shanghai International Energy Exchange at 440.20 yuan ($69.70) per barrel, reports Chinese daily the South China Morning Post. Some 18,540 lots have reportedly been sold and purchased so far.

“The question number one is whether China will be able to make the oil market its demand market, and not the oil supply market traded in dollars, which it is now,” Vladimir Rozhankovsky, Global FX Investment analyst comented, according to geopolitics.co. China has recently overtaken the US as the world’s number one oil buyer.

If the world trade enters into a death spiral of reciprocal economic sanctions, keeping oil trade in dollars will be a matter of strategic importance, or a matter of survival for the US,” the analyst added, referring to the recent spate of tit for tat export tariffs imposed by China and the USA.

As a result of these, Washington can deliberately undermine the image of the petro-yuan by attacking Chinese stock, which could result in the devaluation of the yuan, making Chinese oil futures less attractive, Rozhankovsky said. However, the US has some major disadvantages on which the petro-yuan can capitalize. First, the US dollar is still overvalued in currency markets, making domestic oil production very expensive. Second, while Russia and Iran have overland pipelines, the United States does not have transatlantic pipelines to its major markeys in Europe, and tankers are costly and highly risky, the analyst added.

“The trade war between the US and China has already begun. China has plans to promote the renminbi as a reserve currency and there is no better move than to purchase raw materials in its national currency. It can save money on the currency conversion and become less dependent on the US dollar,” Stanislav Werner, head of the analytical department of Dominion, commented in whatreallyhappened.com

Werner notes that the oil market is worth $14 trillion at the moment, and is bigger than the Chinese economy. “The first trading sessions were volatile, but this is a typical story for new financial instruments. The US has a serious reason to get nervous, because in many ways the hegemony of the US dollar came from oil trading in dollars,” he said.
