Council Removes “Transphobic” Flags Because They Displayed the Dictionary Definition of the Word ‘Woman’

A left wing council in the UK has removed two flags raised to prote International Womens Day because they were deemed “transphobic” after someone claimed they carried an offensive message by displaying the dictionary definition of the word ‘woman’.

You couldn’t make this stuff up, could you?

The flags, flown outside Bootle & Southport town halls in the Metropolitan County of Merseyside, were a celebration if International Women’s Day.

They featured the word “woman” and the dictionary definition: “an adult human female.”

However, a Twitter user called Adrian Harrop complained that the flags were a “transphobic dog whistle,” the offending items were removed. Progressives are very fond of dog – whistles

“We have been made aware of a potential issue regarding the messaging on a flag flown at Bootle & Southport town halls and have taken them down,” tweeted Sefton Council’ piblic relations department, “We have a proud history of supporting LGBTQ+ rights across the borough,we continue to support all members of our communities.”

So Sefton Council is stating here that the word “woman” and its dictionary definition are now offensive, and posssibly constitute a “hate crime”. This isn’t a joke. You can verify the facts of the story at this BBC News page or HERE or HERE. I’m not exaggerating that “woman” is now a dirty word because it is offensive to chicks-with-dicks who claims that creatues with penises and testes can be women while creatures with vaginas and ovaries can be men in any way. This is literally what Sefton Council are saying in their statement justifying this insanity. Just take another look at that flag:

One Twitter user raged: “This was the offensive flag. Seriously, absorb this. They took these flags down because they were seen as OFFENSIVE. This isn’t something happening on social media. This shit is happening in REAL LIFE and it’s fucking BIZARRE,” she added.

She then pointed out the irony of a flag meant to honor International Women’s Day being removed because a man complained.

Presumably, from now on the word ‘woman will be deemed so offensive every dictionary that includes a proper definition of the word will have to be reprinted with every instance of “woman” being replaced by a more trans- friendly term, and all the old copies containg the offensive word burned.

In George Orwell’s 1984, the Newspeak dictionary shrank in size year after year in order to limit the scope of language to express ideas and so consrtict thought and free speech, making it harder for the plebs to vocalize their opposition to The Party.

That’s progress! Orwell’s book was fiction, but we have plenty of examples, from The Soviet Union and Communist China to Cuba, Venezuela, East Germany, Poland and latelty even the so – called liberal democracies of the European Union, to convince us that the authoritarian tyranny of bureaucratic dictatorship is where socialism will always lead.

When Progressives Accuse Conservatives and Libertarians of Wanting To Destroy The Planet

I often see left wing activists, eco – loons and ‘progressives’ around the web claiming that their critics, people who are sceptical of the ‘science’ that predicts Warmageddon any day now accuse anyone who challenges them or points out the economic and social lunacy of demanding we stop using carbon based fuels immediately of wanting to destroy the planet.
One has to wonder why followers of the cult of Saint Greta Thunberg think destroying the economy of the civilized world, throwing billions of people out of work and causing millions to die of starvation would be preferable to seeing a few thousand people a year die of the effects of pollution were the scare stories about Carbon Dioxide true. (They’re not, and if you are not aware of why they are not, your scioentifioc education is sadly lacking.

Another assertion that crops up time and again is that climate change sceptics somehow believe CO2 pollution does not affect them but only affects poor people. Firstly, CO2 is not a polutant. Secondly, while pollution is a serious problem in some places  it doesn’t affect sceptics as badly as it affects poorer people who vote Labour in Britain, Democrat in the USA, and socialist or leftist parties around the world – and if the left understood more clearly why this is so, they could be many times more effective at implementing the right environmental policies to deal with the problems.

Let me show you what I mean with the help of an American AGW sceptic site . Here’s a photo of Los Angeles on a clear day from 1990.

Smog like that used to be a huge problem, and that smog is not carbon dioxide (which is a colourless gas,) but probably a high concentration of nitrous oxide along with sulphates and other noxious gases. But today, Los Angeles looks like this:

The difference between those two photos is obvious. A lot of environmental policy changes were needed to get from point A to point B, and they worked. Mission accomplished.

Now, lets compare that to a photo of Chattanooga, Tennessee, from 1990:

And here’s Chattanooga today:

Other than 28 years worth of advances in camera technology, Chattanooga hasn’t changed much. In fact Chattanooga was considered one of the cleanest cities in America in 1990, and still is today. The environmental policies that were absolutely necessary in Los Angeles weren’t needed at all in Chattanooga.

One of the problems the left have is that their collectivist mindset demands one-size-fits-all solutions because they want everybody to be the same. However if you ask any fashion conscious woman how well do one size fits all solutions work in clothing, the answer will probably be too profane for a public forum.

One of the reasons socialism always fails is that for all their screeching to the contrary, socialists cannot abide diversity either at local or national national level. Thus we are seeing theEuropean Union falling apart as a result of its attempts to politically and financially integrate all its diverse member states (from industrial power house Germany, population 85 million,) to the island nation of Malta (population 350,000) with its fishing and tourism based economy.And we are seeing Britain (now out of the EU,) and other member states torn apart as divisions, between north and south, east and west, city and rural communities go unaddressed because the broad left, the neo – liberal, globalist consensus imposes national and global policies to problems that require local solutions.

The result of trying to pass national legislation to solve local problems is that you’re going to get a lot of push back from people who don’t have the problem you have. Moreover, they don’t want to spend money solving a problem they don’t have.

If I had, now how does the song go?, “A mark, a yen, a buck or a pound,” for every time   I’ve read ridiculous statements like “Conservatives hate clean air and water” in response to their opposition to proposed environmental legislation that would shut down entire industries, I would perhaps have accumulated enough to take a holiday in some unspoiled island paradise in The Caribbean – maybe. But what for.There’s plenty of unspoiled countryside around where I live in north Lancashire and the air is clean. Yet less than 50 miles away away in Manchester,  Liverpool or Leeds the usual big city pollution problems apply

How can the left reasonably expect someone who can look outside and sees a lot of green, clean air, clean water, and a sustainably-developed/ undeveloped/unspoiled/unpolluted woodland, hillsides and valleys, fast  flowing streams in all directions that they should pay more in taxes to fix problems that in most places don’t need fixing?And how incompetent would a government have to be to spend shitloads of taxpayers money in order to provide a nationwide solution to a problem that only exists in a few localities.

How can you reasonably expect someone who has zero need for more regulations, more constraints on their freedom,  which would be completely unnecessary where they live, to be happy to pay the extra taxes and accept the curtailment of personal liberty?

Think it through. If a footballer breaks a leg during a game you don’t sent the whole team to hospital to have the broken bone set in a cast. If a kid eats something rotten and gets a gut infection you don’t give the whole school antibiotics.

The way left wing thinking works is like the guy with the shittiest yard in the street telling everyone else they should be doing more to keep the neighborhood nice.

In reality, most of the country, my country, your country, any country, is perfectly fine from an environmental impact standpoint. You wouldn’t pay someone to mow your lawn if your lawn didn’t need to be mowed. You wouldn’t pay a mechanic to fix your car if it wasn’t broken. And you wouldn’t be happy if government regulators came and said “Listen, we’re going to raise your taxes because people with overgrown lawns and inoperable cars can’t be arsed sorting their problems out.”

So, on the same token, why should communities who already do a good job taking care of the environment where they live be taxed and burdened with regulations to solve a problem they don’t have?

If the left understood this and focused environmental policy at the state and local levels, instead of the national and global, they would not be facing collapse here, in the USA, Europe etc. Why am I writing advice for the left when I am a libertarian you might well ask. It’s because I know I’m safe, the left never learn because they can never accept they are wrong. They can never admit those who oppose them might have a better understanding of a problem. Even now, after suffering a crushing defeat in the General Election two months ago, the UK Labour Party cannot acknowledge that working class voters abandoned then because they are perceived as out of touch with ordinary people, obsessed with minority issues like gay and trans rights, with pandering to Islamic extremists and with exporting more British jobs to China, India and other emerging economies in pursuit of unrealistic and self destructive targets for reducing CO2 emissions.

Conservatives and libertarians don’t hate clean air, green spaces or a healthy environment, but they are realists. Instead of trying to change the climate and atmosphere of the whole planet they focus on what they can change. We can save the environment and civilisation if we do it little by little.

Who Fact – checks the Fact – checkers

facebook-1
Image source: incpak.com

The proliferation of “fake news” in maninstream media (let’s be honest, new media was always full of drek, readers had to engage their own bullshit filter,) many publications and readers have turned to self-styled fact-checker sites like Snopes, FactCheck.org and PolitiFact although the objectivity these sites bring to their verdicts on the reliability of sources has been shown on many occasions to be suspect. Snopes and Politifact have been exposed by conservative commentators as having a covert liberal bias while Factcheck.org was founded by a supporter and political mentor of a certain Mr. Barack Hussein Obama.

This month the Media Research Center unveiled a new project entitled “Fact-Checking the Fact-Checkers,” which is designed to “ensure the fact-checkers themselves are reliable and unbiased, or exposed as liberal partisans if they aren’t.”

The Media Research Center explained in its announcement:

“Sometimes you have to check the fact-checkers.”

With more major news outlets running down their news gathering operations and relying on “fact checkers” to, allegedly, ensure that news fed in by ‘anonymous sources’ is factual, and press statements are accurate it is essential that fact checkers be motivated only by a committment to real news and not by private political agendas.

Fact checking groups such as PolitiFact have been observed to routinely present the opinions of their left – leaning ownners as fact while failing to disclose their connections to left-wing and ‘progressive’ political campaigns. Mainstream media, most of which is left of centre, tries to cast these groups as neutral third parties when, in fact, they are part of the liberal echo chamber and offer a soddy service that relies on the discredited Google fact checker algorithm. A 2016 Rasmussen poll found that 62% of American voters think the fact-check-ers are biased.

Many people believe it’s time to turn the tables and give the public the real facts. While Americans attempt to separate truth from propaganda, especially in regards to politics.

“In an era of ‘fake news’ and inaccurate reporting, it is important now more than ever that the fact-checkers themselves are exposed for their biases,” MRC President Brent Bozell said in a statement.

“MRC routinely finds instances when fact-checkers bend the truth or disproportionately target conservatives,” Bozell continued. “We are assigning our own rating to their judgments and will expose the worst offenders. Americans deserve the truth. There must be accountability across the board, and that includes these alleged arbiters of fact and fiction.”

Emmy-winning investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson recently gave a Tedx talk at the University of Nevada, on the subject of the “fake news” narrative that generated tremendous discussion during and following the 2016 U.S. presidential election, saying that “the whole thing smacked of the roll-out of a propaganda campaign.”

While Attkisson admitted that fake news has long existed in various forms, she said tha something different took root within U.S. mainstream media in 2016. Suspecting that the origins of this growing “fake news” narrative which heaped opprobium on Republicans and burbled enthusiatically about the wonderous wonderfulness of anything comnnected to those Democrats who supported Hillary Clinton were less than organic, Attkisson began researching found connections between the origins of this phenomena and a decidedly progressive non-profit organization called “First Draft,” which, she notes, “appears to be the about the first to use ‘fake news’ in its modern context.”…

Upon investigation, Attkisson discovered that one of the main financial backers and movers of First Draft’s anti-fake news coalition was none other than Google, whose parent company, Alphabet, was chaired by major Clinton supporter Eric Schmidt until Dec. 2017. Schmidt “offered himself up as a campaign adviser and became a top multi-million donor to Hillary’s bid for the presidency. His company poured money First Draft around the start of the election cycle,” Attkisson said. “Not surprisingly, Hillary was soon to jump aboard the anti-fake news train and her surrogate, David Brock of Media Matters, privately told donors he was the one who convinced Facebook to join the effort.”

This was apparently a bid to swing the election for the Democrat candidate and secure a continuation of the Obama administration policy which saw Google executives sitting in on cabinet meetings in The Oval Office.

When Is Speech Or The Written Word Violence?

Political totalitarianism is coming to America, and via The United States Of America it will spead through the rest of the developed world if we do not resist. This week we have seen the latest social meltdown in a U.S. city people meeting to attend an officially authorised protest against the removal of a statue depicting the Confederate General Robert E. Lee were attacked by left wing rent-a-mob thugs who though not authorised to protest had decided to disrupt the rally.

Unfortunately rent-a-mob were not the only ones who learned of what was planned. Right wing thugs from the KKK and other extremist organisations decided they were going to make sure the rally in support of General Lee went ahead. And the rest is reported in the newspapers, though you may foind many contradictory accounts. just as truth is the first casualty of war, so objectivity is the first casualty of civil unrest, and if you have the impression that in the U.S.A. it is now impossible to be a neutral observer, you are not the only one.

The same is going on around Europe of course as those who style themselves ‘the left’,n an orgy of virtue signalling, increasingly adopt the position of reverse racism by demanding governments prioritise the interests of minorities over those of the majority and are imposing their warped view by describing any criticism as racism, fascism and ‘hate speech.’ Authoritarian attitudes are being ushered in not by paramilitary thugs in jackboots but by progressive activists and their allies in Silicon Valley and in the mainstream media. Increasingly free speech is being threatened by Google and Facebook algorithms that filter out from search results anything the ‘liberal’ elite do not approve of.

In a chilling oped, When Is Speech Violence published in The New York Times on July 14, psychology professor Lisa Feldman Barrett, who teaches at Northeastern University, argued that the risibly misnamed crime of “hate speech” is the same thing as physical violence because it may possibly cause emotionally fragile individuals stress. Without defining what exactly constitutes hate speech, the professor argues that should be made illegal. This is of course making opinions illegal, for example if a white Christian or atheist is guilty of hate speech for demanting tighter controls on immigration, how can it be OK for an Islamic fundamentalist Imam call on Muslims to ‘rise up ans slaughter the infidel.

While politicians are mealy mouthed when confronted with this contradiction, internet technology companies are taking it upon themselves to stamp-out so-called “hate speech,” smothering free speech and the free exchange of ideas in the process.

A number of troubling actions by internet companies — Google (Don’t be evil – that’s our job,) being most prominent among them — are making it increasingly clear that some in Silicon Valley have proclaimed themselves defenders of the politically correct creed, of the new fascism and that those firms will silence any and all heretics who challenge the dogmas of these techno – inquisitors.

“Silicon Valley lives in a politically regressive, exclusive bubble. They are not aware of their own biases in how they talk, have a limited understanding of the philosophy behind free speech, and find it difficult empathizing with other points of view,” says Aaron Ginn, co-founder of the Lincoln Network, a think tank that seeks to promote libertarian ideas in the tech industry.

It is not just that Google is not promoting points of view which dissent from the techno – orthodoxy, the search giant, aleady in trouble with regulators around the wortld for abusing its near monopoly position, is also actively trying to suppress diversity of opinion. Google recently and controversially fired software engineer James Damore for authoring an internal memo questioning the company’s ideologically motivated but hypocritical diversity policies by highlighting the gap between policy and practice and citing sound scientific evidence suggesting that possible biological differences between men and women, not discrimination, could be a factor in the tech field’s high percentage of male professionals.

In the aftermath of Damore’s firing, former Google employees stepped forward and on condition of anonymity revealed the true extent of the company’s efforts to silence non – liberal voices among its staff. One anonymous employee identified as “Hal” told Breitbart News last week that some employees in Google’s ad sales department are “openly encouraging Adwords customers to pull their ads from Breitbart and Rebel Media.”

Another employee identified only as “Emmet” confirmed this with Breitbart News, and also revealed the existence of “efforts to demote anything non-PC, anti-socialist, and anti-Islamic from the company’s search results.”

Emmett says he personally witnessed efforts from leftists within Google to bias YouTube’s algorithms to push anti-PC content off the platform’s ‘related videos’ recommendations. Breitbart reported “The software could just ‘astroturf’ your Related Videos section [an effort to hurt overall ratings], and you would be none the wiser.”

“Sure, if you know what to look for, perhaps you’d notice,” he continued. “But the vast majority of the viewership would never ever know. That’s the whole point of such a disinformation program, right? If you can tell it’s disinformation, you would never, ever believe it,” the whistleblower added.

People familiar with the process have told reporters recently that YouTube, a Google spin – off, is also laboring to cleanse its platform of alternative voices that challenge the mainstream liberal narrative, removing videos crotical of Islamic extremism, but contunuing to show videos of stonings and beheadings in Muslim countres, content advocating sex with young children and anti – Christian violence, including video of white women being gang raped by Muslim men in northern Europe. The video-sharing site has in the past few months systematically demonetized videos of right-wing commenters and journalists, such as Infowars editor-at-large Paul Joseph Watson and former Rebel Media reporter Lauren Southern.
