Left-Wing Journalist on Sweden’s Migrant Suburbs: “Everyone Knew it Would End in Disaster”

A well known left-wing journalist in Sweden who has been one of the biggest advocates of uncontrolled mas immigration appears to have performed a U turn on the issue, or is at least endeacouring to achieve the impossible feat of riding two horses with one arse. Aftonbladet’s Lena Mellin is now admitting that when it came to Sweden’s crime-ridden no-go areas, “everyone knew it [the open doors immigrstion policy] would end in disaster.”

Mellin now acknowledges that the attempt by Sweden’s far left Social Democrat government to replace the ethnic Swede majority with third world migrants has failed. The forlon hope that huge numbers of migrants from Africa and the Middle East has failed. These people come from tribal and theocratic societies and have been at each other’ throts for thousands of years in their homelands, what kind of deluded, sociopathic fat left idiot do you have to be to think that dumping them in LiberalSweden where, by the standards of their homelands, they can live like kings on the free money the generous social welfare system grants them.

With no need to think about earning a living the migrants have occupied themselves with drug dealing, pimping, people trafficking and protection racketeering among other criminal activities.

“All parties, with the possible exception of the Left Party and the Sweden Democrats [SD], who hardly affected the reality on this point, should be ashamed,” writes 64-year-old Mellin. She accuses politicians of having “largely neglected the development in some of our suburbs” despite the fact that “everyone knew it would end in disaster.”

Numerous commentators called out Mellin’s hypocrisy in admitting she knew integration was failing yet still refusing to renounce her support for the government’s mass immigration program, which many leftists have admitted, aimes to make Sweden a migrant majority nation. It is likely that she would reply by complaining that the government did not throw enough money at the migrants in order to help them integrate.

“Incredible! Lena Mellin, of all journalists, one of the foremost advocates for mass immigration and multiculturalism, one of the worst SD-haters, claims that ‘one has known for years’ that it would go to hell,” tweeted Ted Ekeroth.

“For more than a decade Sweden’s ruling class — including political leaders and the media — has denied that there are any problems in the country’s banlieues caused by the mass importation of Third World immigrants. Except for problems caused by those WAYCIST Swedes, of course,” writes the Gates of Vienna blog.

“Now it seems that the truth about the ‘cultural enrichment’ (i.e. rape, sexual assault, people shitting in the stret, organised crime, gunfights,) has become so blatant that it can no longer be denied. The response of the Swedish media establishment? “We knew all along that things would end badly; we just forgot to tell you.” And they blame the politicians.”

Many on the right of the political spectrum are saying Sweden ought to follow the example srt by Norway and, in defiance of politiclly correct edicts from the EU, should begin gathering statistics on criminals’ ethnicity. Eurosceptic, anti – immigration party, The Sweden Democrats and the Conservatives have urged the government to dump its policy of not revealing the ethnic or religious background of criminals and crime suspects. However, Justice Minister Morgan Johansson of the ruling Socialist Democrat Party dismissed the demand as “poisonous rhetoric,” Swedish national broadcaster SVT reported.

Meanwhile several rapes of European women by “men of African or midddle eastern appearance are reported every day in thye once safe and peaceful nation.

Unlike Sweden, Norway never abandoned the practice of mapping out criminals’ ethnicity, reports indicate that migrants and their locally-born children are far more likely to perpetrate crimes than the rest of the population, and are also far more likely to be unemployed. In Sweden, no such study has been carried out since 2005, before the EU backed ‘open doors’ immigration policy and other virtue signalling policies such as not punishing immigrants for serious crimes, “because they don’t understand Swedish culture,” began to seriously disrupt the social nsystem in Swedish towns. Immigration into Scandinavia’s largest country country also accelerated to tens of thousands per year.

“People with backgrounds from Africa, parts of Asia and Latin America are most drastically overrepresented,” Synøve Andersen, researcher at Statistics Norway (SSB) told SVT, commenting on the latest crime report. Migrants show passports from Iraqi and Syrian fellow travellers they have to present to buy ferry tickets for their passage to Sweden

According to SSB, the proportion of the Norwegian population of European ethnicity suspected of crimes is 4.5 percent in a demographic representing the bulk of the population (i.e. those without immigrant background), 6.7 percent among immigrants and a staggering 11.3 percent among the children of immigrants, which astounded Norwegian researchers.

In terms of violent and domestic abuse, the differences between immigrants and others are still bigger: 11.2 permille for immigrants and 22.9 permille for children of immigrants versus 6.3 permille for the rest of the population, according to the Norwegian study. “This is a result that shows something we clearly need to learn more about,” Synøve Andersen told SVT.

The report also showed marked differences between various types of immigrants. The Authorities in Malmo responded by inviting local gang leaders for pizza, while the Swedish government recently announced it would commit $175,000 to funding Drag Queen Story Time events where men dressed as women read and perform to children.

Despite the remarkable findings from Norway and other neighboring countries, Denmark and Finland, Swedish Justice Minister Morgan Johansson dismissed the possibility of conducting a similar study in Sweden, amid its ever-changing ethnic landscape.

“It does not matter to me if you are black or white, once you commit a crime you should be punished, that’s my starting point,” Johansson told SVT. Johansson claimed previous surveys indicated that migrants’ overrepresentation disappeared once socio-economic factors and age are not taken into consideration. Statements from whistleblowers in Sweden’s Police Forces suggest morale amonmg officers is at an all time low because courts refuse to punish African and middle eastern criminals to “avoid creating inter – racial tensions”.

So the Justice Minister is talking bollocks, THE COLOUR OF A CRIME SUSPECTS SKIN DOES MATTER.

Rock Band The Flying Hypocrites Embark On World Tour

pippi-thurnberg-horz
Climate activist GretaThurnberg and fairy tale character Pippi Longstocking – Secret twins)

As Eco – activism wunderkind and Pippi Longstocking lookalike Greta Thurnberg swans about in New York after crossing the Atlantic in a zero emissions superyacht made of carbon fibre (the manufacturing of which produces far more than your or my car or even my brothers V8 Range Rover will throughout their useful lifetimes,) rock band The 1975 have set off on a world tour to publicise a new album which features for one of its tracks the aforementioned Froken Thurnberg reading one of her sanctimonious but scientifically defunct essays on climate change.

For a bunch of British boys ‘the 1975’ seem to lack the usual appreciation of irony as, according to an open letter written to the lads by Conservative MP David T C Davis, in their zeal to make the world understand how important it is that we all heed the Swedish Pippi Thurnberg’s message about the urgency of adopting zero emissions lifestyles, they will be jetting off with their road crew and all their heavy equipment to gigs in South Korea, Hong Kong, Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand and a series of venues across the USA.

And they will not be travelling anywhere by camel train, ox cart, horse drawn barge or even £4million carbon fibre superyacht, these Extinction Rebellion supporting zealots will be flying round the world by Jumbo Jet to teach us all about how irresponsible and selfish we are in flying off on business or pleasure trips by jet aircraft.

Maybe like Pippi Longstocking Thurnberg, The 1975 are far more enlightened than we know, and understand the extent of the climate catastrophe far better than a mature adult can ever hope to. Or maybe they are just a bunch of wankers who are so far up their own arses they have completely lost their self awareness.

The letter sent by David T C Davis MP posted on Twitter:

Loony Labour Attacks ‘White People Profiting’ from Jamie Oliver Rice Recipe

labour-butler-lewis-horz
Labour MPs Dawn Butler and Clive Lewis – maintaining Labour’s double standards

A UK Conservative MP has lambasted Labour politicians for “politically correct claptrap” and “idiocy” after two of them linked Chef Jamie Oliver’s “jerk” rice recipe to slavery and accused him and other “white people” of profiting from Black culture.

Clive Lewis, the far left (i.e. Stalinist authoritarianism) representative for Norwich South, grabbed a few headlines by supporting his Labour colleague Dawn Butler MP, who attacked celebrity chief Oliver over the weekend for “ cultural appropriation” after he launched a Jamaican-inspired “jerk rice” product in his range.

Lewis, an avid virtue signaller and stereotype for self hating lefties claimed the UK has “raped, pillaged, enslaved and destroyed” some cultures and said the rice row is part of a “trend that hasn’t stopped since slavery.” Which is utter bollocks of course as was quickly pointed out.

Conservative member Philip Davies MP hit back, telling reporters: “This politically correct claptrap from Dawn Butler and Clive Lewis is beyond belief, and the type of idiocy we could expect to run riot if [Labour leader] Jeremy Corbyn and Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott, [an ugly, fat arsed racist who has made a career out of hating ‘white people’] were running the country.

“People can be forgiven for thinking the world has gone mad.”

UKIP Education spokesman and London Assembly Member David Kurten also blasted the double standards and what he called the “lunacy and hypocrisy of the far-left.”

He told reporters: “If anyone ever goes on holiday to Jamaica, they will undoubtedly bump into some local people selling tasty jerk chicken or jerk pork meals to tourists in order to make a living.

“Eating food from other cultures and appreciating their art and music is a good thing which everyone enjoys, but manufacturing offence about enjoying other cultures creates hostility and division.”

He continued: “Dawn Butler was once pictured wearing a saree, the traditional female garment of India, so by her own standards she should go to diversity training and stop appropriating clothing styles from other cultures as that is a racist application of white privilege. As for Clive Lewis, I do hope he’s never had a curry, kebab or chimichanga, or he may have to label himself a racist.”

He’s right, while Lewis and Butler are talking through their arses. Ainsley Heriot, Levi Roots, Ziggy Marley and Lorraine Pascal are all black chefs who sell cookery books and have fronted shows on TV. And while Levi Roots and Ziggy Marley specialise in Caribbean cooking, but sell their books to anyone who fancies having a go (and their recipes are delicious,), Herriot cooks dishes based on cooking styles from around the world while Lorraine Pascal is expert in French and Germanic patisserie. Why are the Jew hating Labour loonies not accusing these two of cultural appropriation. Leftie hypocrisy and double standards on view again.

Lewis also argued that “predominantly white people continue to profit from black culture” and accused Oliver of being part of a system of structural racism, created to justify slavery and empire. FFS it’s only a bowl of rice, but has this cupid stunt not noticed that we are (outside London at least,) a predominantly European nation therefore it is no surprise that the majority of chefs and TV cooks will be European.

Jusr for the record Lewis was also criticised recently for defending an alleged anti-Semite who was expelled from the party for heckling a Jewish MP. Which underlines the point that Labour are the party of hypocrites, they argue against racism but despise their own race, and they hate Jews.

In reference to the rice row, Lewis said the racist system dating back to slavery “denies too many black people a fair shot at doing the same thing,” on Twitter. And two minutes research reveals that African – Caribbean woman Dawn Butler was once pictured wearing a sari, the traditional female garment of India so by her own standards she should attend diversity training and learn why it is racist to appropriate clothing styles from other cultures.

Levi Roots, happy to sell his Jamaican sauces and Caribbean cookbooks to anybody,: Ainsley Herriot – culturally appropriates French, Italian, Greek, Middle eastern, Indian, Thai, Indonesian and Chinese food styles, Lorraine Pascal makes delicious French Viennese, Dutch and British cakes, gateaux and pastries. Ziggy Marley brings his family cookbook to European, American and Australian readers. What do leftie whiners find had to understand about diversity?

New World Record For Left Wing Hypocrisy

Not so long ago we reported how mild mannered reporter Clark Kent dentist Walter Palmer was being demonised for killing Cecil the Lion while on a big game hunt in Zimbabwe.

We do not condone humans killing lions, however we hear via our proprietor Jenny Greenteeth’s stringers in African water holes that antelope, wildebeeste and wart hogs are all for it. We were rather bemused however that mainstream media and the sheeple of social media went crazy about the nice, cuddly, meerkat eating lion (Do lions eat meerkats you might well ask – well yes they do, and all manner of cute, small furry animals. Changed your tune about the lion killing dentist yet).

Bemused I say because when the story below broke, it did not warrant a word in mainstream print or broadcast media, not did it raise a whisper of protest from the leftie sheeple on social media:

Sorry about the spurious lines on the screenshot,  been doing a bit of plumbing and my fingers are stiff. That’s from a post on my Facebook  wall, it prompted a rather interesting comment thread, mostly people arguing with one of the most toxic and stupid human beings I’ve ever encountered. Nice to know that age cannot wither not custom stale his infinite gobshite. Take a look at the comment thread, it is really amusing how the self righteous bell end fails to make his point

So anyway the upshot is, it appears that while the lefties are yelling ‘right wing criminal nut job’ at Palmer and WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYcist at me (because apparently my highlighting the story indicates I approve of all white tyrants and mass murderers including Hitler, Stalin, Catherine The Great, Caligula and Atilla The Hun – never expect logic from a progressive, liberal, or leftie) it turns out that actually Walter Palmer was given permission to kill Cecil or any lion he fancied killing by the Zimbabwean government.

They charged him a big fat fee for the privilege of course, but hey, what gave anyone the idea that because Obama visited Africa the brutal tyrant Mugabe and his henchmen had become caring, sharing, kumbaya singing, cross dressing friends of the environment.

Labour Scourge Of Tax Avoiders Is A Tax Dodger? WTF is going on?

Margaret Hodge: Labour’s scourge of tax avoiders is outed as a tax avoider (image source)

Ho hum – one week to go to the election and no news worth reporting, we see pictures of Cameron, looking shiny, Miliband looking confused Clegg looking resigned and Nigel Farage holding a pint of beer.

But there is nothing worth talking about.

Yesterday Cameron announced a tax freeze on Income Tax, National Instrance and VAT. Miliband and Ed balls called it a gimmick (which it was)

A few days ago Miliband announced a reduction in Stamp Duty. Cameron, Osborne and Clegg called it a gimmick because that’s what it was.

Green candidates continued to talk bollocks, SNP candidates continued to talk about when Scotland rules the world and Russell Brand recommended that his followers (who are not voting if they take his recent advice) should support Labour.

UKIP candidates continued to talk about the issues most voters want candidates to talk about but their words of common sense were not reported in the media.

Oh and former Labour Minister and current chair of the Public Accounts committee, Margaret Hodge (nee Oppenheimer), who was Labour’s most vigorous critic of tax avoidance by the super rich was exposed as a tax cheat. A report in The Times which is behind a paywall so check it out second hand at IB Times) reveals that Hodge used the Lichtenstein Disclosure Facility (LDF) to transfer onshore 96,000 shares in a private steel­ trading business established by her father. The LDF is a controversial tax deal established in 2009 enabling the transfer of assets out of the Principality of Liechtenstein, a tiny European country with notably low tax rates, to the UK.

It was created as an incentive for those with undeclared income or unpaid taxes to repatriate their assets by offering preferentially time­-limited tax liabilities, substantially lower penalties and no threat of criminal prosecution.

The Stemcor shares Hodge received in this way in 2011, following the winding­ up of the Liechtenstein Trust, were worth about £1.5 million. Her shareholding was properly declared in the parliamentary register of members’ financial interests, but she has not spoken of offshore vehicles or the LDF.

As Hodge has singled out the LDF system for criticism while using it herself her attitude would seem a tad hypocritical to say the least. But then what else would we expect from a member of Labour, the party that claims it speaks for the working class while really representing the interests of lawyers, tax eaters and ‘the stinking rich’ (including Margaret Hodge (nee Oppenheim).

You will not get to know much about the dodgy tax affairs of Margaret Hodge from mainstream media of course, to report fully the dishonesty and hypocrisy of an elitist might open a massive can of worms.

There Ain’t Nothing Like a Dame… (from Anna Raccoon)

We’ve spent enough time discussing the hypocrisy of the main politicians – Emily Thornberry, proud owner of an ex-housing association property in North London campaigning against the Conservative manifesto pledge to allow the sale of, er, ex-housing association properties; Miliband wooing the Jewish voters by, er, backing the recognition of Palestinian statehood, to say nothing of mangling a bacon sarnie; Cameron promising a referendum of the EU in 2017 ‘after negotiations’ that the EU say can’t be held before 2019…

I thought some light relief was the order of the day – and the Green party seemed a likely provider of hypocrisy with a side order of cant.

No sooner said than done – and over to Bristol. I was halfway through a turgid article on the Green Party’s Bristol Candidate – Darren Hall – ‘Big Green Week co-curator‘, organiser of the ‘Biggest Bike Ride’ (naturally) featuring Professor Windy (it’s the Soya beans…) who starts each day with ‘The Morning Muse’ (‘Should I have had the Soya Beans and the lentils?’) (‘Is Movicol suitable for vegans?’) – enough already, when I fell in love with their main funder.

Foreign Aid: The Epitome Of Politically Correct Stupidity

Interesting story from breitbart, London which confirms what I have said many times, that lefties are the most selfish, egocentric bunch of hypocrites imaginable. Everything they do, they do only to be seen doing it, everything they support they do only to be heard supporting it.

Remember all the screeching about how we had to support america in bombing the crap out of third world countries because the resident dictator was / is “A ruthless tyrant who is slaughtering his own people.” Turns out at the same time these hypocrites were screeching for us to give more in development aid to the self same tyrants (and some even nastier than the ones we bombed).

I love irony, don’t you?

Britain ‘Gave £1 Billion to World’s Most Corrupt Countries’

Britain gave more than £1 billion to some of the world’s most corrupt countries in 2013, possibly even helping fund extremism, despite numerous warnings that the money was being misspent.

Anti-corruption group Transparency International says that all but 20 of the worst countries in the world for corruption received money from Britain, with figures revealing that British aid to these countries increased by almost 25 percent in 2013 as the government tried to keep up with its controversial target to give 0.7 percent of GDP in aid.

The Daily Mail reports that the countries which have received the most UK money include Somalia and South Sudan whose central governments remain unable to control vast swathes of their own territory. In Somalia, terror groups are also reported to extort large amounts of aid money through ‘taxes’, leading to fears that Britain is inadvertently funding extremism.

Even North Korea, with its oppressive communist regime, received money from the British government.

Although much of the money to corrupt nations is channelled through aid agencies rather than central governments, many of these groups end up being forced to hand over at least part of it. In Somalia, it often ends up in the hands of the Al-Shabaab terror group.

Conservative MP Philip Davies said that giving aid to these countries was a “colossal waste of money”, warning that voters may not tolerate their taxes being spent on corrupt foreign regimes.

“It is completely unacceptable. We should not be giving money to countries who have not got their houses in order.

“This is exactly why you hear people saying that foreign aid is taking money from poor people in rich countries and giving it to rich people in poor countries – you might as well stick a Mercedes catalogue in the envelope.”

Tony Benn’s inheritance tax dodge – another leftie hyocrite exposed

Pipe smoking, tax dodging Marxist Tony Benn

Remember the patron saint of loony lefties, Saint Anthony of Wedgewood – Benn, previously known as Viscount Stansgate? Agreeable sort of bloke, pip smokers, great speaker, utterly daft opinions as one would expect from an aristocrat who is so deluded he thinks he understands the working class?

Got him now? …………….. Yeah, he was the one who was ever so keen on redistributing wealth from the rich to the poor, evertbody’s wealth ……………….except his own it turns out.

One think all lefties have in common is their hypocrisy, or if you are one of those people who thinks psychobabble is intelligent, their cognitive dissonance.

You see for all his screeching about how the evil rich should be taxed to penury and legal tax avoidance techniques should be criminalized with the death penalty automatically imposed on anyone guilty of being accused, Benn was no slouch when it came to protecting his own modest fortune from the taxman.

Not that I would blame anyone for using legal means to minimise their tax liability, its the hypocrisy of the wealthy Labour supporters I can’t stand.

from Yahoo finance:

A stalwart of the left, Tony Benn was a critic of tax avoidance measures. As an owner of expensive properties in London and the south of England, it seemed inevitable after his death in March that his family would face a hefty inheritance tax bill.

But now publication of the details of his will coupled with records held by the Land Registry suggests he took practical steps more than a decade ago to reduce the impact of this tax on his heirs.

After the death of his wife in 2000 , the couple’s children appear to have taken on part ownership of the family home, a valuable property in Holland Park, west London. This suggests that some planning had taken place to ensure the children inherited directly from their mother, as opposed to the more normal course of events where the first spouse to die leaves everything to the other, who in turn bequeaths everything to the children on his or her own death.

This latter course is especially the norm when the surviving spouse continues to live on in the property. Mr Benn sold the house only in 2011.

How did the transfer of ownership cut the family’s tax bill?

Assuming the couple owned their assets in equal parts, by giving away her share of the property straight to her children or other heirs, rather than her husband, Mrs Benn would make use of her own, personal tax threshold. In 2000 this was £234,000 per person (today it is £325,000).

If she had simply bequeathed her share to her husband no tax would have been payable by him, as assets passing between married couples are exempt. But, crucially, he would have had more assets to bequeath to his children at his own future death and the benefit of his wife’s personal IHT allowance would have been lost. More tax in total would have been paid.

Hollande’s ex lover: Don’t kick a man when he’s down … stamp on his bollocks

hollande trierweiler
                       President Hollande and Valerie Trierweiler – happy in each other’s company                                          

Pauvre, pauvre M. Hollande, il est dans la merde profond; things just go from bad to worse for the hapless French President. With his UMP opponents in disarray (those who’re not in prison) the Socialist leader should be having an easy ride.

But the Front Nationale are topping the polls, their leader Marine Le Pen is an increasingly popular figure and Hollande’s popularity rating is the lowest for any French leader since Louis XIV lost his head over bad polling figures, the economic disintegration of the French nation becomes more apparent every day, Hollande’s sycophancy in supporting all America’s wars is going down like a lead balloon with voters.

And then when Hollande already looks down and almost out for the count, along comes his former girlfriend Valerie Trierweiler and stomps on his bollocks.

Hollande has always traded on his image as a gentle, if somewhat befuddled looking left wing intellectual. Alas, the lovely Valerie has just trashed that image in a new book, Merci pour ce moment (Thank You For This Moment), a tell-all memoir chronicling her seven years at his side.

In her words Hollande is presented as mean, cold, curmudgeonly, mean spirited, with a penchant for offensive sexist put-downs and snobbish contempt, a serial liar in love and in politics and a media-obsessed egomaniac. And that’s just Chapter One.

“He campaigned as the enemy of the rich, but the truth is that he despises the poor,” she writes, recalling their single visit with her working-class family at their council house, in which Hollande looked “bored to tears – he would rather have dined with his sophisticated Parisian friends than with us”. The President shows a nasty streak with his joke that “all those Massonneaus [her maiden name] aren’t very pretty, are they?” In a further damning revelation, she says he calls the poor “the toothless” and is “very satisfied” with his own witticism.

This kind of attack has far greater potential to harm him than political ineptitude. The French may have been willing to forgive the affairs – with Trierweiler while he was in a long term relationship with Ségolène Royal, his partner of 29 years and the mother of his four children; with the actress Julie Gayet, the perfectly typecast luvvie supporter with the Marilyn Monroe figure while he was with Trierweiler and who knows how many others, they might forgive the deceitfulness Hollande must have a talent for in order to simultaneously run several relationships but will they forgive his hypocrisy?

French politicians whose private life attracts adverse attention usually claim that the personal should be separate from the political, and that private behaviour holds the key to public conduct. But Trierweiler’s revelations about The Presidents attitude to the poor are so toxic it’s hard to see how Holland can survive.

Unflattering anecdotes about the President’s macho side have been picked up gleefully by the press and will be particularly damaging with women voters who are traditionally more sympathetic to the political left. These stories include accounts of Hollande’s dismissive comments made to Valérie just before a State dinner, that “it does take you a long time to look that beautiful, but then, that’s the only thing that’s expected of you”.

That little snark was overheard by many guests.

And she will have caused Hollande even greater damage with her claim that he instructed her to be given high doses of tranquilisers, shortly after they had split, in order to keep her in hospital and out of his way.

As an ex – journalist herself, Trierweiler is nothing if not media savvy. When she started to write her book she disconnected from the internet, and never sent anything by email. The manuscript was secretly printed in Germany by an independent publishing house, and Hollande only knew of its existence last Tuesday. It’s all reminiscent of the operation surrounding the ‘hatchet job’ books published by Mikael Blomqvist in the ‘Millennium Trilogy’ novels.

According to reports in French media, the President dispatched aides all over France to try to get hold of an advance copy, the effort failed – just as he failed to get hold of the fateful issue of Closer magazine with pictures of him astride a motor scooter last outside Julie Gayet’s apartment, which kicked off the whole debacle, just as every policy he has implemented during his two and a half year Presidency has failed.

Tolerance Is Not The Same As Acceptance

I often post about the hypocrisy of the politically correct left and their double standards. Lefties never agree with me of course, and they are sure they’re right because they just such superior human beings.

I wonder if some of them would take the message on board if it came from a black man, or is being back and disagreeing with the politically correct agenda as bad as being white.

Dennis Gilman is a Jamaican professional, I don’t know his politics but he nails the illiberal bigotry of the “liberal left” here.

Tolerance is not the same as acceptance

Why must persons whose sexual practices I tolerate insist that I view their lifestyle as “acceptable”? Such things are not my business; such issues are between you and whichever God you worship. Don’t shove it in my face, don’t insist that I not have a negative view of it and don’t insist that I never express disapproval of it. If my expressions of disapproval, abhorrence or repudiation are interpreted by persons as expressions of hatred of any person or group of persons, then I view that as a grievous misconstruction. I don’t hate persons who do not live by my moral code. Were I to be like that, I would have to hate over 90% of the population of the world. My moral code is for me alone. I do not attempt to impose it on others and I greatly resent anyone or group who attempt to impose theirs on me.

The hypocrisy of those so called “human rights” groups is appalling. Queen Ifrica sang:

Yu can change di laws of man
But yu can’t change di laws of god
So if dem nocking a big glass dem glad
Wan wi fi change a must mad dem mad
Somebody tell mi what is happening
A don’t want no fish inna mi Ital dish
To see mi son become a father
Mi greatest wish

Those words were called “hate speech” and she was vilified and denied from participation in an international concert, yet Snoop Doggy sings, “Bitches ain’t $h!t but hoes and tricks . . ” (I won’t quote more of it; too degrading to women) but he was not pulled from the lineup!
