How Can The ‘Left’ Talk Of Equality When They Don’t Tolerate Diversity Of Opinion

<!– http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/11/25/one-thing-left-wont-tolerate-diversity-opinion/ –>

One of the first things I learned at my Grandfather’s knee, as it were, was the importance of free speech and of exposure to different ides and shades of opinion. Grandad had been a member of the Labour party before World War One and had lived through the class wars in the early decades of the twentieth century. My Dad was a Labour man too, until as a newspaper reporter, he learned things about socialism that shocked him.

What dad had discovered was that some time after the 1918 Represtentationn Of The People Act was passed by the national government under David Lloyd George, which extended voting rights to all men and to women over 30, thus paving the way for the working class vote to enable The Labour Party to compete with The Conservatives and eclipse The Liberal Party, certain elitists, aristocrats, wealthy business people and academics feared their elite social class would lose its grip on power. Led by The Fabian Society these new upper class leaders of the party that claimed it was a grass roots working class movement had only contempt for the working classes, whom they regarded as inferior beings.

George Orwell exposed this soon after it had happened, in the second half of his polemical book The Road To Wigan Pier. Orwell had been commissioned to write a study of the terrible working and living conditions endured by the working classes in British industrial towns. What the wealthy, elitist members of ‘The Left Book’ club, which commissioned the study, hoped Orwell would produce was an argument for paternalistic socialism, with a government of enlightened, socialist elitists presiding like the Patrician caste of ancient Rome over the ignorant, stupid, ineducable, almost bestial lower orders.

What Orwell did produce was indeed a study of working class life, but he found among them intelligence, sensitivity and a rough edged kind of nobility in the way they endured the privations of life. In the second part of the book however, Orwell wrote an exposé of the patronising, condescending, self righteous attitudes of these wealthy, virtue signalling socialists. And he was probably the first to identify one of the most despicable traits of these people, their inability to tolerate anybody disagreeing with their utopian vision or pointing out the very obvious flaws in their ideas for solving social problems.

This was no trivial matter, just as it was becoming clear that both Germany’s National Socialists and Russia’s Communists were monstrously tyrannical regimes under which the working classes were as badly off as they had been under the old monarchies, Orwell had revealed that the Fabian socialists rather liked both, particularly Hitler’s policy of eugenics. So long as those born to rule continued to rule and those born to toil were kept in their place, The Fabian’s idea of Utopia stood.

I became a member of The Liberal Party in the early 1960s, at the time The Liberals in parliament were a tiny remnant of the once great party, but at local level they were much stronger. Though the party had become more collectivist and less libertarian than the party of 1918, it was still possible as a liberal to hold and express an unorthodox opinion. The same was true of Labour, but free speech was a privilege extended only to older members. Among the younger ones hatred of anyone opposed to “the agenda” was starting to become de rigeur.

The left, traditionally the political position of individual freedom, personal development and self – determination has since then continued on its path to authoritarianism.

It is very revealing to observe how opinionated Labour supporters women who dare to stray from the party line are treated by ‘new’ Left in Britain today? Just fine, provided one stays on message. Dare to dissent and the mask of diversity and benevolence, over which the Left claims to have a monopoly, slips.

The latest name to be added to the list of people in the Labour Party who have fallen foul of Fabian authoritarian for expressing an unsanctioned view is German born M.P. Gisela Stuart, who, it was reported last week, was allegedly reminded that she “had another country to go to” by former press officer to Tony Blair, Alastair Campbell. Her crime: daring to campaign for Brexit (Mr Campbell called the story “truth mangling”).

First, can you imagine the furore had anyone said that to Jamaican born Diane Abbot with regard to her racist, black supremacist view of white people in Britain? Secondly, it has been established beyond doubt by the attitude of the EU bureaucracy to Brexit negotiations and by the perdormance of the UK economy since the Brexit vote that is was the Remain campaign, supported by campbell and his crony Blair, that mangled the truth in theiur campaign. Thirdly, recent events in Europe have demonstrated that the intention of the E.U. was to create a bureaucratic dictatorship that would swallow all member states into a single European superstate.

What adds to the insult is the suspicion that if any Conservative or Liberal Democrat behaved towards dissenters like that, they would risk their career – but that the Left gets away with so much by invoking a philosophical “get out of jail free” card, they are the party of diversity and multiculturalism.

Incredibly, the now suspended Labour MP Jared O’Mara actually said as much a little while ago, when he refused to resign over his own derogatory comments but suggested that had such bile been uttered by a Tory MP, the situation would have been different because Conservatism doesn’t foster “equality and egalitarianism”. Eventually, and reluctantly it must be said, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was forced by public pressure to act.

What breathtaking arrogance! What stunning hypocrisy! What is the source of this benefit of the doubt the Left is prepared to allow itself but not its opponents? What gives socialists the right to demand that they be held to a lower standard than those to which it holds its opponents? What credibility can this veneer of egalitarianism and tolerance have if its prozelytizers consistently fail to practise what they preach, behave in an increasingly elitist manner and yet continue to take the support of their historic working class constituencies for granted?

The Left’s obsession with the quasi – religious dogma of diversity and equality of race and sex has reduced these important matters to a lazy box-ticking exercise, which a huge section of the population now holds in contempt, ultimately harming the cause of the very groups it claims to be supporting.

If the Left truly values diversity, it must celebrate dissent. People must have the right to oppose same sex marriage, affirmative action hiring policies, academic upliofts for minorities and the promostion of transgenderism in schools. When differing opinions can be houted down and earn those who express them threats of violence, the echo chamber may well sound harmonious, but the while the voices bouncing the walls repeat the same ideas, a dangerous anger is simmering silently on the back burner.

Oxford University Introduces Mandatory ‘Cultural Appropriation’ Classes

One of the oldest and most respected colleges, Magdalen, at Oxford, Britain’s oldest university has become the first to introduce the currenly fashinable idiocy from Ameroca’s west coast, compulsory racial awareness classes to ensure ethnic minorities are not offended by anything, ever.

Magdalen College students have voted to require all first-years to attend sessions which will cover racism, ‘institutional racism’, ‘cultural appropriation,’ and implicit bias.

According to a report in The Telegraph, students will learn about how to “participate effectively in fighting racism for both BME [Black and Minority Ethnic] and non-BME students”. Well, we supose expecting such morons to lean anything useful is just unreasonable

Farheen Ahmed, Oxford Student Union’s Vice President for Welfare and Equal Opportunities, said she welcomed the move as “an important part of bringing the conversation about race and ethnicity into the wider consciousness”. Well yes, that’s very nice fereed, but WTF are you studying that involves the conversation about race and ethnicity? Or do you plan to get your degree in Politically Correct bullshite and take a job in some QUANGO where being from a minority counts for far more than abilty to contribute anything.

The student paper Cherwell notes: “The University is becoming increasingly aware of the need to prioritise student voices on issues of race, as seen in the establishment of various groups to handle such concerns”.

Implicit bias, apparently, is when people are accidentally or unknowingly discriminatory or racist to minority groups, or when they are influenced by stereotypes. Cultural appropriation is the adoption of the customs, practices, or ideas of a culture, which is not said to be authentic or sensitive enough to minority groups. OK, so blacks will abandon cutlery and crockery and eat food with their fingers from banana leaves? All ethnic minorities will eschew electrical goods, vehicular transport, modern heating and plumbing and western style clothing and these all belong to European and north American culture. Oh sorry I forgot, they’re students and therefore far too stupid and sheep like to have thought that through.

In some of last year’s more idiotic examples of student intelligence fails, Magdalen College was criticised for a 1920s-themed ball after complaints that it could cause offense to female and ethnic minority students on the basis that “people of colour and women were entirely absent from college spaces” during the time period.

Oxford’s Lincoln college was accused of “cultural appropriation” over its New Orleans-themed ball, with students claiming it promotes “nostalgia for an era steeped in racism.”

Oxford students voted to create a “Class Liberation Officer” to protect the working classes from “microaggressions” such as being called a “chav”.

Obviously Magdelen is determined to preserve its reputation for elitism, the offsping of working class families would never put up with this kind of bullshit.

Personally I find her apearance bizarre and about as sexually alluring as cold porridge. Still each to there own, where would we be without diversity of opinion.

 

ANOTHER Alleged Rotherham Child Rape Gang in Court

In the latest chapter of the scandal that just will not go away for the politically correct left, with numerous convictions for rape and sexual abuse already recorded against member of Rotherham’s Muslim community, three Rotherham men have been brought to trial trial accused of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old in a graveyard and car park the 1990s.

The trio, Sajid Ali, now 38, Riaz Makhmood, 39, and Zaheer Iqbal, 39, all from Rotherham, allegedly plied the young girl with alcohol before coercing her into performing sex acts on them when they were teenagers, Sheffield Crow Court heard Monday.

All three are charged with sexually assaulting the girl in the Masbrough area of the town.

Prosecutor Sophie Drake told jurors how the three defendants “plied” their young victim with drink before pressurising her into performing acts on them, sometimes one after the other, The Star reports.

Ms. Drake said that while the girl was not threatened with violence, the three defendants used other methods of “controlling” her.

“They said they would tell her mother what she was doing and she was scared of this. The Crown say this is one of the ways they put pressure on her and would control her,” Ms. Drake told the court.

She also insisted the alleged victim “looked her age, if not younger”.

The offences allegedly happened in 1994 and 1995 when the men were aged between 15 and 17. The victim eventually went to police in September 2014 and identified all three defendants in September 2016.

In a police interview, she said she waited until then to report the matter to the police because she had felt “ashamed” and “guilty” and said that alcohol played a part in the situation.

“I think a lot of it were [sic] down to having a drink,” she said in the police interview played to the court, adding: “I was passed around from man to man.”

The alleged crimes only stop when the girl’s mother stopped her spending time in the area, the court heard.

Mr. Makhmood denies three charges of indecent assault, Mr. Ali denies seven charges of indecent assault, and Mr. Iqbal denies five charges of indecent assault. The trial continues and can be followed in The Guardian.

A report on the wider investigation into organised abuse in Rotherham is covered bY the Rotherham Advertizer, reveals that a further three thousand lines of enquiry are being followed by the national crime agency.

Amazingly, in spite of this case having been extenstively covered by news organisations of the left and right, and been the subject of two official reports, the Jay report and the Casey report, both commissioned by UK the government and led by respected social science academics, left wing activists and advocates of uncontrolled immigration still insist the scandal is an invention of “conspiracy theorists”.

‘Jailing Hillary’ Best Way To ‘Restore Public Faith In Govt’ – Morgan Freeman

We usually try to keep this blog for general news and British or European political news. This story however, concerning one of the most vociferous of the Trump hating Hollywood twatterati has a bearing on the direction many political developments of concern to Britain and Europe may be heading.

The best way to restore public faith in government institutions is to “send Hillary to prison“, according to Hollywood icon Morgan Freeman, who warns that unless the former First Lady’s crimes are seen to be punished, “everyday Americans will forever know, deep down, that there is one law for those with money and power, and another for the rest of us.”

“Hillary should be in jail for her unlawful deeds and President Trump should absolutely, absolutely make sure this happens to send the very strong message that no-one, and I mean no-one, is above the law in the United States of America,” Morgan Freeman said in New York while promoting National Geographic’s new docu-series The Story of Us.

Responding to a question about why he thinks President Trump has not yet fulfilled this particular campaign promise, Freeman laughed and said and looked up at the heavens before saying, “Goddamnit man, you were elected for this very reason, lock that bitch up!”

After being accused of political incorrectness, Freeman laughed again, saying “It’s all about being loving and caring these days, isn’t it?

The most loving and caring thing we as a society can do for Hillary Clinton is lock her up where she can get professional and institutional help and prevent her hurting herself or anyone else.”

The veteran actor, who remains as professionally active as at any point in his long career, cannot be accused of partisan bullying. It appears the 80-year-old star is simply a straight shooter who would prefer politicians and public figures are held to the same standards as everyone else.

In September the Shawshank Redemption star appeared in a viral video demanding President Trump speak directly to the American people about the extent of Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Weinstein scandal: What it tells us about celebs, American politics & Hollywood

The Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment scandal which has rocked the Hollywood establishment and shocked America to its core, according to mainstream media should not have surprised anyone (if fact much of the shock and horror being expressed is typical Hollywood liberal hypocrisy.) And now the story has broken, it seems that as well as a few who were actually victims of this man, all the usual suspects are jumping on the bandwagon and shouting, “me too, me too.”

To them we can only say,”Honestly, you celebrity sheeple, we in the real world know what goes on in showbiz, the fashion game, politics and all other areas where fame and fortune are in the gift of venal individuals, you people are not as unique and amazing as you think. There have always been both women and men who would disrobe and ‘assume the position’ for the sake of short term gain. You are mummers for fuck’s sake, players in a farce, stop believing your own publicity.”

Weinstain (!) has been known as a sexual predator for years and the history of rich, powerful old men in Hollywood using their position to extort sexual favours from good looking young actors and actresses is as old as Hollywood itself. We have reported it in our blogs, HERE, HERE, AND HERE.

The latest Hollywood scandal (plus a few linked in the previous paragraph,) and the corruption endemic in Washington, isn’t only an indictment of the celebrity culture, but of America’s moral decay as well.

The story of Weinstein, the uber-powerful film producer, co-founder of Miramax Films, friend and major donor to Democratic politicians (including Hillary Clinton whose mock outrage in her condemnation of him for doing what she could not have been unaware of when he was useful to her, and behaviour similar to that she has tolerated and defended in her husband Bill for decades,) is the story of America’s moral decay in the second half of the twentieth century and on into the twenty first.

Sure Harvey was fired from his job as co-Chairman of The Weinstein Company after the New York Times ran an article exposing his serial sexual harassment of female employees, is such a perfect storm of corruption, depravity and hypocrisy that it exquisitely encapsulates the moral decay of America. Prior to that article however, the great and not o good of show business and politics had obviously known of this proclivities but had closed ranks to protect one of their own.

The New York Times piece revealed that Weinstein has, over the years, settled at least eight sexual harassment lawsuits out of court. We are told the settlements included gagging clauses. What the article reported just the tip of a really grotesque iceberg, for in its wake a plethora of other claims has surfaced.

In a New Yorker article, written, ironically enough, by Ronan Farrow, son of alleged pedophile Woody Allen, even more claims emerged of Weinstein’s predatory behavior. One of the many lowlights from that article includes Italian actress/filmmaker Asia Argento and two other women claiming that Weinstein raped them.

The most famous women among the sea of those claiming harassment at the hands of the movie mogul are Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Ashley Judd, Rose McGowan and Rosanna Arquette. Thereare of course many condemning Weinstein who had no direct dealings but are vicariously shocked and offended by the scandal.

https://www.rt.com/shows/crosstalk/406317-weinstein-scandal-hollywood-hypocrisy/video/

The repugnance of the Weinstein scandal i overwhelming, and nearly every public person is going through the pantomime of denouncing Harvey and his lecherousness, but this comes over as disingenuous at best. All the movie stars, media members, and politicians now publicly expressing their disgust at Weinstein have previously displayed nothing but admiration for his genius as a producer and promoter during the time he could influence their careers, or give them credibility as they campaigned for votes.

What strikes us is the many similarities with a showbiz scandal that shook Britain in 2014 when DJ and television presenter Jimmy Savile, about whom there had been rumours for decades but who, like Weinstein had been protected by the establishment (allegations of his bizarre and perverted behaviour were routinely deflected by reminders that he “did a lot for charity,” but as stories emerged that had been covered up for years it turned out even that had an ulterior motive.

So how do people like Harvey Weinstein and jimmy Savile get escape exposure for so long? The main reason is the deification of fame; both were shameless self promoters, Savile’s schtick was a man of the people act, the charity work was part of this, his TV shows specialised in putting members of the public centre stage for a few minutes. And he was a valuable asset to his main employer, the taxpayer funded public broadcaster The BBC. Weinstein had a knack of producing films have been nominated for Oscars for Best Picture 26 times in the last 28 years and have been nominated overall for over 300 Academy Awards. In other words, Harvey could make people rich and famous, which is why so many in Hollywood found enough felixibility in their moral compass to ignore his alternative career as a rapist and sex abuser. To quote Upton Sinclair, “It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends on his not understanding it.”

Blind ambition isn’t the only reason Hollywood looked the other way regarding Weinstein, political expediency played a part as well. Weinstein has been a long time supporter of Democratic candidates, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in particular, and has donated a lot of money to their campaigns. And so both those hypocrites, who had shamelessly played on their politically correct credentials when campaigning were quite happy to turn a blind eye to misogyny when the money was rolling in from a misogynist

A perfect example of someone making a devil’s bargain with Weinstein for political reasons is Lena Dunham, a vociferous and vocal Clinton supporter and devout feminist, who has consistently attacked Donald Trump for a crude, but private, conversation that took place years ago. Duham admitted she knew of Weinstein’s predatory reputation in regards to women, but still shook his hand and performed at a fundraiser he held for Clinton’s campaign. Dunham said she betrayed her feminist values because “she so desperately wanted to support Clinton.” Yeah, right Lena, the end justifies the means when the end is to advance your agenda.

Hollywood liberals were quick to denounce Evangelical Christians for supporting Trump despite his alleged moral turpitude and misogyny, calling them hypocrites. Well in the case of hypocrites, I guess it takes on to know one.

Scottish poet Robert Burns wrote in the seventeenth century, “Wad some power the giftie gie us, tae see ourselves as others see us, (from Ode To A Louse).

Burns was an inveterate womaniser but he knew how to behave (and it’s likely those Scottish farm girls knew how to handle a man who didn’t.) The life of a Scottish farmer and tax collector would not require the decorous manners of a Royal court, but anyone who stepped out of life could expect a visit from the father and bothers and uncles and cousins of the young lady he had offended. Perhaps we need a return to such rough justice to persuade the likes of Fat Boy Weinstein that he might be a rich and powerful movie mogul but that does not give him droit de siegneur over atttractive young women whose careers he can influence.

It is difficult to admit, but if we could find the courage to see ourselves as others see us, to borrow the line from Burns, we would recognize that Harvey Weinstein and Jimmy Savile and all the others are the story of democratic civilisation’s decline. Both are or were in Savile’s case, totally self centred, amoral, entitled, corrupt, impervious to criticism, blindly ambitious, lacking self awareness, and willing to use power and fame to exploit the weak and indulge their darker impulses and insatiable desires. The sooner we recognize that, and recognise our own shortcomings in having been so besotted by wealth and fame we tolerated it, the faster we can try to arrest the moral decay that threatens out way of life.

UK Labour Party left denies plans to ‘purge’ anti-Corbyn members

Rumours of a plan by left wing extremist supporters of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn are planning a purge of members who oppose the ultra – left leader have been rife since the General Election in June. Party managers have now taken the unusual step of have denying reports that a group of hard-left Members of Parliament is orchestrating a “purge” of moderate MPs, according to the Rupert Murdoch-owned Times newspaper.

Corbyn supporters claim that the Times story has been exaggerated and distorted.

a momentum banner paraded at a demonstratiion outside parliament
Picture source: Russia Today

The newspaper’s front page on Friday carried a report that Momentum activists in South Tyneside, near Newcastle, had put together a list of 49 current Labour MPs who could “join the Liberals.” The list was found on a Facebook page with over 130 members. MPs named as not loyal enough to Volksfuhrer Corbyn included posh boy Chuka Umunna, longtime anti-Corbyn campaigner Jess Philips, and Liverpool Wavertree MP Luciana Berger.

“A [Facebook] page with 136 likes posting a list of MPs saying ‘join the liberals’ does not constitute a ‘plot’ nor a ‘deselection hitlist,’” Corbyn backer and political commentator Aaron Bastani Tweeted.

Momentum dismissed the Times report “laughable,” and stated that the list did not reflect the group’s national policy. “The list was published by a local Momentum Facebook page with 136 likes, and in no way represents Momentum’s national policy,” said a spokesman for the group. “With parts of the press sinking to such lows, it is no surprise that people are turning to social media for their information.”

On Wednesday (5 July) the Wavertree Labour branch was reportedly hijacked by Momentum members, a series of votes ousted a council cabinet member and other branch officers. Newly-elected Roy Bentham, from the Trotskyite wing of the Labour Party, also demanded an apology from constituency MP Berger, who last year resigned from Corbyn’s shadow cabinet over the Brexit referendum result.

“Luciana needs to get on board quite quickly now,” he told the Liverpool Echo. “She will now have to face us the next time she wants to vote for bombing in Syria or to pass a no confidence motion in the leader of the party – she will have to be answerable to us. We would like her to come out publicly like other MPs have done and apologize for not supporting [Corbyn] in the past,” Bentham said, as if wishing to confirm the Liverpool metropolitan area is now run by people who would have felt at home in chairman Mao’s china or Uncle Joe Stalin’s Russia.

Berger hit back in a joint statement with the new Wavertree branch secretary, saying: “We are united in wanting to secure a new general election and the return of a Labour government under the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn as soon as possible.

“We had a great local result on June 8, with the Labour majority going up for the third election in a row and almost four in five people voting for Luciana Berger as the Labour candidate. That is thanks to the hard work of local members and a revitalized national party under Jeremy Corbyn.

“It is a fantastic foundation for the next general election, whenever it comes.”
