Prejudice Against Conservative and Pro-Brexit Academics Killing Free Speech on Campus

This blog and its associates have long championed free speech as one of the foundations of a democratic society. Recently it has seems the establishment were intent on surrendering our right of free speech to the prejudice and bigotry of the ‘woke’ brigade.
But something resembling resistance seems to be stirring.

Far left bias has created a “chilling effect” in British academia which is forcing conservative and pro-Brexit academics to self-censor on campus, a report has found.

A report from the Policy Exchange think tank found that many conservatives in higher education feel there is a “hostile climate” for their political beliefs in their departments. A survey of educators found that 44 per cent of ‘fairly right’ and 63 per cent of ‘very right’ academics felt that the political climate has impacted what they teach or research.

This is compared to just 8 per cent of those who consider themselves ‘fairly left’ and 16 per cent for those claiming to be ‘very left’.

In partnership with YouGov, the report sampled 820 academics, of whom 484 are currently working in the university system and 336 are retired educators.

The report also found that the chilling effect extended to students, with just 39 per cent of pro-Brexit students feeling comfortable to share their political opinions on campus, compared to 89 per cent of Remain-supporting students.

Trevor Phillips, the former chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, told The Times that he found the report’s findings “deeply disturbing”.

“No one fought for diversity and inclusion in order to create universities staffed by a faculty who may look representative, but are to all intents and purposes, intellectually identical robots,” Philips said.

The government’s universities minister, Michelle Donelan, added: “It is deeply concerning the extent to which students and academics with mainstream views are being silenced and discriminated against in our universities.” … Continue reading >>>

The Ginge Jihad: Revenge Of The Redheads?

You might thing the left are notable for nothing except their sheep like tendency to follow every fad that momentarily grabs the ever shorter attention spans of denizens of cyberspace. You’d be almost right, displaying the stupidity of the mob and stupidly calling it The Wisdom Of The Crowd is one of the noticeable traits of left wing thinking.

The other of course is hypocrisy.

Do you know any red heaired people (or if you are Scottish do you know anyone who doesn’t have red hair?) Most of us do, and they are for the main part fine people. So why a few years ago did it become an acceptable prejudice to pour scorn on Ginges. I mean it wasn’t just good natured teasing we are talking about it was nasty, vicious hate speech. Well I suppose the people who run around screeching ‘hate – speech’, ‘racism’, ‘sexism’, ‘homophobia’ at anyone who expresses an opinion they don’t quite totally agree with have to have an outlet for their prejudices. In fact they have several. Northerners are one, short people another (I’m a victim on both counts), ginger haired people are yet another.

I suppose Chris Evans has a lot to answer for, but even with black, brown or blond hair he would still have been a knobhead. I could never understand the pillorying of Simply Red sing Mick Hucknall for his suposed freakish ugliness which was often said to be related to his ginger hair. Mick isn’t the best looking guy on the planet, but he’s not The effing Elephant Man either. And he’s a very good musician; where in the rules does it say he has to look like Adonis?

Anyway the Gingism has backfired
from Breitbart London

Dozens of young redheaded men and women are replacing the ritual bullying of the playground with the ritual strictures of radical Islam, perhaps – at least according to some experts – as a result of the bullying and persecution they endure early in life.

You’ve likely already made the connection between ginger hair and home-grown Islamic radicals yourself. Subconsciously, perhaps, from newspaper reports showing carrot-topped wannabe jihadis from Bradford, and TV clips of auburn brothers in east London. What you probably don’t know is just how vastly over-represented redheads are in the ranks of Islamist converts.

There are no surveys of jihadis, of course. The Quilliam Foundation, a counter-extremism organisation, told us that no one keeps reliable data on white converts to Islamism. So news reports probably represent the best data set available to researchers.

We sampled national newspaper coverage of white converts to radical Islam published between 5 August 2013 and 4 August 2014, excluding cases where there was no evidence of extremism or radicalisation. For example, Lucy Vallender, the ginger-haired Territorial Army private who had a sex change and became Britain’s first transgender Muslim woman, was excluded from our results.

We discovered that 76 per cent of white British converts to radical Islam had red hair. In the Daily Mail archives, 69 per cent of white Brits lured into jihadism or the orbit of an extremist preacher were ginger. The number was similar for the Mirror and the Telegraph. The Guardian yielded a full 100 per cent redhead rate for the stories we sampled.

These are extraordinary numbers when you consider that in northern and western Europe, the average incidence of red hair in the general population is 5 per cent. In other words, Islamic extremists reported on by the media are fifteen times more likely than the general population to have red hair.

Well, that’s where being prejudiced gets you, as you sow so shall you reap, as the saying goes. The revenge of the ginges is upon us. although I’d rather they’d chosen The Morrigan than Allah as their agen of retribution.

Unless you think there’s a Fleet Street conspiracy to single out and report on ginger jihadis – and that the Guardian is leading the charge – the data clearly demonstrate that white people who convert to radical Islam are overwhelmingly likely to be ginger. Continue reading

Racism – The English Language For Lefties Lessons Keep Rolling Out

It seems a lot of educated people in the blogosphere and on facebook and other social media were as pissed off as I was with those semi literate, politically correct, brainwashed idiots who tried to shout down intelligent discussion by screaming ‘racist’ or ‘bigot’ at anyone who disagreed with them.

These people, knowing that one of the main UK parties (the Liberal Democrats) campaigning on a globalist agenda platform in the European Parliament elections were heading for extinction while the others (Labour and Conservative) were simply treading water thanks to the Lib Dem vote collapsing, had no arguments, no policies, only blind rabid hatred of anyone who disagreed with their anti – British agenda.

In a post by longrider which is really a plug for an article by Allison Pearson on a generation so indoctrinated with politically correct ideology they think intelligent debate consists of the Fascist tactic of screaming pejorative insults at opponents.

Sadly I noticed people older that the teens / early twenties here who are afflicted with the same disease.

What in my view made the point most strongly on that Longrider posts was a comment from Stonyground:

“Who is it who has brainwashed these children so that they believe that racism, rather than being prejudice against people because of their race, is simply failing to use approved terminology when referring to race related matters?”

I can tell him that on my fiends list at Facebook and in this community, the people screaming loudest were schoolteachers. Is it any wonder our schools are turning out pupils who are illiterate when their teacher are illiterate?
