RIP Jo Cox MP

An historic and dreadful day today.

A woman dead. A man in custody. A family in pieces. A bunch of agenda-driven scavengers making hay.

When her name came to my attention today, in trying to put aside the cynical thoughts about politicians that would shame me if they were voiced at this time, I looked at who she was and how she conducted herself.

I doubt that Jo Cox MP and I could have found much to agree on, in the unlikely event we found ourselves in discussion even on Twitter, in terms of our ideological backgrounds and beliefs.

Nevertheless, all I found (before even the most sharp and cynical message-management wallah could have shuttered any negative aspect she may have ever revealed) was the sort of public servant we should all wish for. Shrewd, intelligent, worldly, balanced, driven and passionate.

From what I could see, this woman conducted herself extremely well. A wife, mother and a dedicated and accessible MP, with a remarkable track record in the voluntary and charity sectors, and as an up-and-coming conviction politician, the likes of which are all too rare across the political spectrum. No quarter given, all in pursuit of her well-informed sense of fairness and humanity.

While the establishment politicians of our generation are finding new ways to make the best of MPs’ expense arrangements after the justified pillorying of the last decade, this MP lived on a houseboat on the waters of London with her husband. This option is as bohemian as it is humble, work-intensive and necessary to the un-monied who wish to set up home in the capital city.

Her death is tragic and senseless & I feel awfully sad for her husband and children.

Terrible shame on all those, wherever they are in the world or the political spectrum, who use it for point-scoring, whether they be for or against Brexit, feminism, mental health provision or whatever else.

Peace.

So-called Caitlyn Jenner, Stunning and Brave Islamic State…

Islamic State call themselves Islamic State. That’s how they – to use the parlance of the day – self-identify.

Caitlyn Jenner calls “herself” Caitlyn Jenner. For nearly 66 years this same individual called himself Bruce Jenner – including when he won an Olympic Gold medal. Nevertheless, “she” now self-identifies as Caitlyn.

The BBC (amongst others, including our pasty, pan-faced Prime Minister) insist on referring to I.S. as “So-called” Islamic State, irrespective of how they self-identify.

Meanwhile, no such disrespect towards self-inflicted genital mutilation fan, fatal car-crash enthusiast and global attention whore Caitlyn Jenner. On the contrary, Caitlyn is “stunning and brave

Well, look.

Either it’s So-called Islamic State AND so-called Caitlyn Jenner, or both Islamic State and Caitlyn Jenner are stunning and brave.

Choose one, or fuck off.

It’s that time of year…

Will this be the 3rd year in a row that the first week of January brings a slew of stories about sugar being the great new evil, that needs to be controlled like alcohol, tobacco, crystal meth, or some such shite?

Probably…

The last word in SJW smackdowns…

This, via Breitbart, is just priceless and should be preserved for all of time.

We are fighting to end hate, to unite as one and love each other. We are fighting to be treated right without discrimination and for everyone to have equal opportunities.”

Bullshit. You have no quantifiable metrics for injustice, so you have no victory conditions (for a very simplified example, when blacks hold X% of all engineering jobs and are only Y% of all prisoners, racism is ended). That would be fine by itself, but you believe in fighting injustice with injustice (gays have historically been denied gay marriage? let’s get random CEOs fired for opinions they held six years ago). You don’t seek converts, you seek to punish and bully – straight white males who disagree with you must be purged and publicly humiliated. Even the jihadists will spare you if you convert; no apology or future correction will satisfy a SJW.

I could forgive that too if you weren’t all hypocrites and liars. Your treatment of women and minority dissenters is appalling; if they don’t want you acting on their behalf, that’s their choice, not “internalized patriarchy” or whatever. You rob them of moral agency. When called out for these behaviors (as you always insist on calling out others), you lie. You strawman your opponents (criticized a woman? misogynist!), you group them with the worst (you’re a gamer? you’re as bad as the anonymous rape threateners!) and when confronted with your own flaws, you restate them less threateningly (motte and bailey argument). You phrase all arguments as kafkatraps (disagreeing with your assertion that we are evil is taken as proof that we’re evil). You publish manipulated and misleading statistics, then lambast anyone who questions them.

You insist on vigilante justice against random acts of the week for your two-minutes hate. Why is it the NFL’s business to punish domestic violence? And, if it is their business, why isn’t Hope Solo receiving the same attention from your side?

Then you claim to be arguing for equality, but you’ve taken the idea of racism (hatred based on skin color is bad) and replaced it with a new concept where only one race can be guilty of racism. You excuse racial prejudice and hatred based on what I’ve already explained are arbitrary, unmeasured states of being. Your solution for the unequal treatment of whites and blacks is to hold whites to a higher standard. Your side lobbied the FBI to redefine rape so more women victims would be counted, but also so that “made to penetrate” does not count, leaving male victims in the cold. Because male privilege, apparently.

Historically ignorant SJWs think whites hold collective guilt for the awful things our ancestors have done. But they don’t care about the unspeakable atrocities by other races. The only difference between whites and others was that whites had the social and technological prowess to do evil efficiently; Africans, Asians, Indians, and everyone else practiced genocide and slavery, they were just less adept at doing it right. Given the means, they would have done the same. But nope, only whites are guilty; Arab oppression of blacks and caucasians never happened, not to us, nope.

I’ve been lucky enough to grow up in America, so this shit is new to me. But I’m descended from puritans, and I know my history; I know how they treated dissent. I also know how commies treated dissent; I grew up next door to a grizzled old Russian who barely avoided the gulag by smuggling himself out of the country. I know what you petty tyrants have turned into every time you gained enough power.

Worst of all, you turn the very principles of freedom against us. We tolerate you because we believe in free speech and civil discourse, not bullying and violence. But that means we have to watch you advocate against that very freedom. We don’t believe in ruining a stranger’s professional life over an opinion, but that means that we can’t punish your actions.

We believe that the rightness of our actions should speak for itself. You believe in bullying, even as you claim to love the oppressed.

Funny how the evil and all-powerful patriarchy has seen fit to act according to SJW whims for all of recent memory, punishing those they hate and protecting those they love. Funny how the evil oppressor males have to speak anonymously, while the SJWs fighting the power can use their real names and get mainstream media coverage for fun and profit. How when a million straight white male nerds get bullied, no one cares, but the minute one fag hangs himself, suddenly bullying matters – and the solution, of course, is more bullying, but by the “right” people.

That’s the arrogant core of it. You do the same evil, in the same pattern, as so many before you, because mob justice, punishing dissent, and repression of others is just fine and dandy so long as the “right” people are doing it to the “wrong” people.

Eat shit and die. All I ever asked was to be left alone.

Wonderful.

Category error…

This is not a typo, it’s a total misunderstanding…

Here, let me fix that for you.

Meanwhile, Labour are engaging in gross hypocrisy, criticising the Tories for political patronage, which of course Labour never did while in power. Oh no. Never.

In other news, things have not improved since I wrote about the need to completely abolish ‘honours’ a year ago.

Solidarity…

Perhaps if the northerners weren’t so fixated on the south and “Tory scum”, they’d notice that if there’s anyone they should be pissed off with it’s their own light-fingered socialist neighbours…

Disgusting.
