The Presidents Club – Why Great Ormond Street are WRONG to return their donations

www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/presidents-club-dorchester-hotel-men-only-charity-groping-sexual-harassment-what-happened-london-a8175256.html

The Presidents Club Charity Dinner, (see link above for report) is one of the hottest talking points this week; and the fallout from it is only going to get worse as the week goes on, as the names of Celebrity attendees will undoubtedly be released.

David Mellor, who is the Chair of the Presidents Club, is already stepping down from the Department of Educations board, and I would expect several more high-level resignations and “apologies” very soon.

Since the news broke of the charity-grope-fest, a number of charities have decided to return donations received in order to disassociate themselves from the Presidents Club, including Great Ormond Street Hospital.

The charity, who have received £530,000 from the Presidents Club between 2009-2016, have stated:

“due to the wholly unacceptable nature of the event we are returning previous donations and will no longer accept gifts from the Presidents Club Charitable Trust.”

I have to say I’m utterly perplexed at the sheer amount of virtue-signalling on display.

Are they really saying, that the reason they won’t accept money raised to help dying children, is all down to ethics?

Who gives a damn where the money comes from?

By not accepting it, they are simply gambling with the lives of sick children, all for the fear of offending a handful of the public who might call them out for accepting donations from a “less-than-reputable” source.

Let me tell you something Great Ormond Street:

Children’s health is not something to be politicised or used as a tool with which to appear virtuous.

Ask any parent, this question:

“Would you accept something which could, or would, help ensure your child did not die, from anyone; regardless of their prior actions?”

You would get a resounding YES every single time.

Hell, I’d accept the help of the Devil himself, if it meant that one of my children didn’t die.

To Great Ormond Street I say this:

You’ve done amazing work over the years. You’ve helped save countless lives of children and ensured that the lives of the children who couldn’t be saved, were at least made a bit more comfortable and dignified.

Don’t fall into the trap of pandering to fashionable trends of disassociation and what some elements of society deems to be virtuous.

By all means, call out the Presidents Club for what happened at the Dorchester Dinner.

By all means, call out their behaviour.

But take the money they have raised, and put it to good use. You are a charity set up to save the lives of children, so please continue to do so.

By ALL means.

I have left a link to Great Ormond Street Hospitals Charity page here, so please donate anything that you can.

TERF War – Why Feminism is cannibalising itself

If I can take away one thing from the Women’s March 2018, it was how much more ridiculous Feminism has become with the idea of Intersectional Feminism.

Feminism on it’s own is a complicated affair; though, as a white, cis-gendered man, I’ve no doubt that this is how it will seem to me. Because of my “privileged and masculine” outlook on such things, I’ve always pretty-much assumed that all Feminists think along the same lines; men are bad, women are good etc..

Not so much apparently.

https://twitter.com/MsBlaireWhite/status/955116908012912641

Do me a favour?

Type “White Feminism” into the search bar on Twitter, and you’ll be greeted by a slew of Feminist in-fighting and outright hatred of the idea that white women have their own version of Feminism that excludes and delegitimises minorities.

As much as the organisers of the Women’s March told us that the event was all about women across the world standing up against misogyny and creating a voice for ALL women, it turned out to be nothing more than an anti-Trump protest, and a huge act of self-cannibalisation, eating it’s way to the very heart of Feminism.

It also showed just how radical today’s Feminism has truly become, and how far removed from any semblance of sanity it really is. It’s no longer about the rights of women as a whole; uniting all women equally under one banner in order to fight the Patriarchy. Now, it has become all about finding the most oppressed group of women possible; the ultimate “Sacred Cow” if you will, with which to spearhead the entire movement. That group is currently the Trans community, particularly Trans-women.

And some Feminists aren’t too pleased about it.

This was taken from the Vancouver Women’s March and shared via the Twitter account of Lauren Southern (check out her YouTube channel here https://t.co/4IPrESDJO9)

Known as TERFs or Trans-exclusionary radical feminists, this particular brand of Feminism stems mainly from the “Second Wave” and is the based on the belief that only women born with a vagina and XX chromosomes are “real” women.

Hardly a ground-breaking thought process, right?

Having thoughts like this are obviously going to get you into a lot of trouble with the Identity Politics Brigade. Activists of the “old guard” of Second Wave Feminism, such as Germaine Greer and Julie Bindel, who both hold the view that Trans-women are NOT real women, have both been no-platformed by Student Unions and cast aside as TERFs by today’s Feminists.

Regarding Transgenderism, Bindel wrote in 2004:

“I don’t have a problem with men disposing of their genitals, but it does not make them women, in the same way that shoving a bit of vacuum hose down your 501s does not make you a man.”

Quotes like this are more than enough to earn you “banishment from the ranks” by today’s “call-out Queens”, and it will only get worse; as long as identity and one-upmanship play a part in an ever-changing, ever-devolving movement like Feminism.

Munroe Bergdorf; a Trans-woman, and one of the louder critics of “old-fashioned Feminism”, has recently spoken out on Twitter asking women to attend the Women’s March in London, and adding:

“I also want to stress that if you do attend, it is CRUCIAL that you do with an INTERSECTIONAL mind-set. Centering reproductive systems at the heart of these demonstrations is reductive and exclusionary.

Not all women have reproductive systems, not all women have a vagina, not all women’s vagina’s are pink. Think about your message, use your voice for ALL women. Not just yourself.

TIME IS ALSO UP on white feminism, TERF’s and any other branch of feminism that seeks power for some rather than equality for all. Tick-tock.” 

Inclusive indeed.

To say that Feminism is beginning to implode is a complete understatement if you ask me. I’m certainly no Feminist (not by a long-shot), yet I have a certain amount of respect for the Germaine Greers and the Julie Bindels of this world, even if I disagree with practically all of their arguments. At least they have the BALLS to fight for women’s rights without the need to rely on identity politics and race-shaming; balls that this new generation, for want of a better phrase, has castrated itself of.

White women need not speak.

Women with vaginas need not speak.

Women with reproductive systems need not speak.

Women who question the validity of Trans people need not speak.

Unless you are near the top tier of the victim-hood pyramid, you might as well throw away your pussy hat, sit still, be a good girl, and listen.

Shush now!

The REAL women are talking.

No confidence in UKIP’s Henry Bolton – should we be surprised? Should we even care?

Henry Bolton, Leader of UKIP and “former” boyfriend of  the alleged racist and Meghan-Markle-hating Jo Marney, has received a unanimous vote of no-confidence by his party.

https://news.sky.com/story/ukip-leader-henry-bolton-loses-no-confidence-vote-11217393

I’m not too sure how to feel about this one.henry bolton

I really couldn’t give a damn about Henry Bolton; he comes across as a sleazy little rat who’d sell his own Granny in order to get ahead in life. You just have to look at his choice of girlfriend to know what kind of guy he is.

But hey – you can’t judge him by his partner’s actions, or the people he associates himself with though, can you?

I say yes, you can to a degree – if you associate yourself with racists and altogether shitty people, then you’re pretty much going to be a shitty person yourself. You might not be racist, but you know that the people you call friends are and, by not disavowing them, you become guilty by association.

Unless you’re Hilary Clinton that is, and God knows if you say something along the lines of “enabled her husband by standing by him” the Left will have you for it…

I think the fact that UKIP’s ruling body have put in a no-confidence vote is a step in the right direction for the party; the less it’s associated with racism, the better.

To be honest though, it’s probably too little too late.

I’ve never been a UKIP voter, and probably never will. The party did have some ideals that I agreed with, and still do to this day: Brexit, self-government and common-sense policies regarding immigration. I seriously considered voting for them when Nigel Farage was the Gaffer, but ultimately, let my vote fall with the Tories to act out the will of the people.

The least said about that, the better eh?

For me, and probably a lot of people in this country, UKIP would have been a lot more credible as a party if not for the “guilty by association”  position it put itself in.

So now that the vote is in for Bolton, what now? He’s so far refusing to budge as Leader, but I think we all know he and UKIP are probably toast. Bolton was never going to be able to live up to Farage in the eyes of UKIP voters; (Paul Nuttall found this out the hard way) and certainly never stood a chance with the rest of the country. The party itself however, have never been able to shake themselves free of the tag of being “slightly racist” or “not as racist as the BNP, but still: racist”. 

What little chance UKIP had of being taken seriously as a party, evaporated when Nigel Farage stepped down.

So, Henry Bolton, I have some advice for you:

Step down.

Do it now and you’ll have time to nab yourself a new girlfriend, just in time to see the party ultimately disintegrate into nothing more than a distant memory.

I’m sure Hitler will have some long-lost 25 year old relatives around somewhere?

Cathy Newman gets schooled by Jordan Peterson

If you are searching on YouTube for the following terms: “car crash interview” or “feminist fails” or “Interviewer tries to make someone look bigoted and fails dramatically” then look no further than this video.

The video shows Professor Jordan Peterson, a Canadian Professor of Psychology at the University of Toronto, being interviewed by the “absolutely lovely and completely non-biased, un-snobbish, non-ideologue”, Cathy Newman on Channel 4.

The debate, which covered such topics as The Pay Gap (myth) and the Patriarchy (another myth), showed exactly why an Interviewer needs to do their homework on the guest they are interviewing. If she had done, Newman would have known not to use her tried and tested technique of twisting someone’s answers into a negative context; all the while painting the person as the “sexist monster” she needs them to be in order to push a false narrative.

Professor Peterson is a highly skilled orator and an absolute master in the art of knowing his subject matter to a tee, and he absolutely showed it in this video.

Not once did he lose his temper, or raise his voice to assert his position on a topic; instead, using his ability to remember every single detail of his previous answers to swat away the ridiculously twisted assertions of Newman.

It was like a cat toying with a mouse.

Constantly being rebutted and corrected after giving false representations of what Professor Peterson was saying, Newman looked hopelessly lost and began fumbling over her questions, to the point where it looked like Peterson seemed to feel embarrassed for her.

Finally though, Peterson decided to move in for the kill and absolutely skewered Newman with this statement.

The way Newman completely floundered was comical, leaving Peterson to exclaim:

“Ha! Gotcha!”

From that point, the interview was over.

So, let that be a lesson to anyone who wants to try and make sweeping generalisations about someone by claiming false facts and twisting statements.

Always make sure you do your homework, and never turn up to a battle of wits unarmed.

Class dismissed.

Man avoids jail for sending indecent images of a child “as a joke.”

I like a joke as much as the next person.

I personally think you can make a joke out of pretty much any situation, no matter how harrowing it might be to someone. Comedy allows us to make light of tough situations in order to help people move on from them. It also allows us to ridicule the more extreme and harmful aspects of society, such as Terrorism, in order to stop it from gaining traction and spreading fear. (Charlie Hebdo were good at this before they became “cucked”).

There’s only one subject that I can’t find funny.

I’ll let YOU decide which one of these two situations I just find myself laughing about.

Let’s start with Count Dankula.

He is being charged with a hate-crime. An anti-semitic hate-crime at that. And “what did he do?” I hear you say.

“As a joke”, he decided to prank his girlfriend by teaching her pet Pug to salute whenever it heard the phrase “zieg heil”, and also taught it to act excited whenever it heard the phrase “Gas the Jews?”. The point, he says, was to turn the dog from what his girlfriend calls “the cutest thing ever” into “the least cutest thing ever” which, as he claims (and all non-Nazis would also claim) is a Nazi. After posting the results on YouTube, the Count recieved a HUGE amount of backlash from people acusing him of “normalising Nazi-ism” and “hating Jews”, something he vehemently denies.

Check out this video from Gavin McInnes who interviews Count Dankula about the whole thing, and pay close attention to what he says about how he has been treated since the video was released.

It’s extreme treatment for such a ridiculous reason if you ask me.

For his “crimes” Count Dankula is facing a year in Prison. A year in prison for a victimless act which was plainly a joke and only be seen to be a joke.

Nobody was hurt or traumatised by his video; in fact you could argue that the only people hurt were The Count and his partner, who had to put up with a tonne of abuse from the online community and neighbours alike, all the while being dragged through the mud by the Police and the Justice system.

Hate-Crime my arse.

And now:

Sahil Sharif.

www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/north-east-news/sahil-sharif-indecent-images-child-14142252

This guy’s idea of “a joke” is somewhat different to Count Dankula’s.

According to Chronicle Live Mr.Sharif thought it would be funny to post an indecent video of a child to his friend.

Har-dee har-har.

When caught, he was also found to have another video and an indecent image on his I-pad. When interviewed by the police, Sharif’s reply was:

“I’m not a paedo. They’re just jokey images.”

Peter Doherty, who was defending Sharif, said:

“Mr Sharif doesn’t have an interest in children – there’s no sexual gratification whatsoever.
“He thought they were jokey images. He knows that’s not the case now.”

“Jokey images” of children being sexually assaulted and degraded. Forgive me for saying, but I smell bullshit.

Sahil Sharif ended up getting a 26 week prison term which was suspended for 24 months and ordered to sign the Sex Offenders Register for 10 years.

Whoopty-doo.

 

So, two totally different jokes, two totally different crimes, and potentially, two totally different punishments.

Firstly, ask yourself this:

If one of these two guys deserve to see the inside of a prison cell, which should it be?

If your answer isn’t Sahil Sharif then you have some serious issues.

Who were the victims of Sharif’s “joke”?

That would be the children. The kids who were abused and assaulted in order for peados to get their rocks-off. The physical and psychological damage will be forever; there’s just no way for these poor kids to forget and move on.

The damage is permanent.

Sure, he didn’t make the videos, but he sure as hell shared them with someone. THAT is a crime.

Some might disagree, but for me, the line gets drawn at joking about videos of sexually abused children.

I mean, what was the joke anyway?

“Look at these kids getting sexually abused! LOL”

I just don’t see it.

 

The fact that Count Dankula is being charged with any sort of a crime is a joke in-itself, never mind a Hate crime. However, if he ends up going to prison or receiving anything short of a full pardon and apology, then it will be nothing short of a joke.

An extremely unfunny one.

Oh, and for those of you who say: “You can’t make jokes involving Nazi-ism!”

Take a look at this and tell me you can’t.

Roman Polanski won’t be charged with molesting a ten year old

This is a rallying call to Meryl Streep, Oprah Winfrey and all of the #MeToo and #Timesup movements!

Get out your black dresses, dust off your “Time’s up” badges and drag out a victim of abuse to attach to your hip like a designer handbag (to show how much you REALLY care)

It’s time to go to WAR!

anigif_enhanced-buzz-13393-1424662115-34

According to The Guardian (see link here) the Hollywood Elite’s favourite degenerate Director won’t be charged with allegedly assaulting a 10 year old girl in 1975 during a photoshoot in which he made the girl pose nude, after which he (again, allegedly) abused her.

Normally, when someone is said to have “allegedly” assaulted another person, I immediately call for due-process in order for guilt, or a lack of, to be found in a fair and just way.

That is still true with Mr. Polanski in this case.

However…

In 1977, Polanski was arrested and charged with drugging and raping a 13-year-old girl. He subsequently pled guilty to the charge of statutory rape. He was released from prison after serving 42 days, and as part of an apparent plea bargain, was to be put on probation. When he learned that the judge had changed his mind and planned to reject the plea bargain, he fled to Paris before sentencing.

Quoted from Wikipedia

He admitted, plead guilty, was charged, and was put in prison for drugging and raping another girl; this time a 13-year-old.

He then fled.

Sorry Roman, but you’re looking pretty guilty to me son.

Certainly a lot more than some of the celebrities who have been taken down by the #MeToo movement, and for a lot less than the child-molesting exploits of Polanski.

So, Ladies, this is your chance!

After years of:

giving standing ovations,

signing petitions demanding he be released from detention in Zurich

and singing the praises of an “alleged” Kiddie-fiddler for decades

(all while knowing of Polanski’s guilt), it’s time to disavow. March down to the offices of the Los Angeles DA (obviously stopping along the way for photo opportunities) and demand that they ignore the statute of limitations and lock his ass up!

#Timesup Roman.

Surely now, after so many victims have come forward in Hollywood. After all of the rhetoric. After the #MeToo and the #Timesup movements standing up and demanding an end to the abuse of women; surely NOW is the time to finally stop looking the other way and forgiving Polanski for his crimes. NOW is the time to treat him exactly like you’ve treat the rest of the sexual abusers in Hollywood.

#Timesup Hollywood.

Isn’t it?

The Golden Globes – uninviting the REAL victims

Rose McGowan. Mira Sorvino. Asia Argento. Daryl Hannah. Rosanna Arquette. Annabella Sciorra.

All women who were abused and assaulted by Harvey Weinstein.

All women who have had their careers either set-back or stalled completely because of Weinstein.

All women who suffered at the hands of a vile, power-mad rapist.

And, all women who were allegedly not invited to the Golden Globes 2018 as part of the #Timesup movement.

According to a Tweet by Rosanna Arquette, she and the above named victims of Weinstein weren’t asked to appear at the event or even to comment on the #Timesup movement itself. You’d have thought Rose McGowan would have at least been invited, (being the one who first brought to light the heinous actions of Harvey Weinstein) if not mentioned somewhere in the evening; but alas, no.

McGowan’s public fall-out with Meryl Streep is reason enough for her to be uninvited, in order to stop her stealing Streep’s spotlight. Meryl is in “Damage control mode” at the moment after the whole #Sheknew movement began, highlighting the fact that she claims she knew nothing of Weinstein’s behaviour prior to McGowan’s statements about her ordeal. Add to that the fact that she was more than happy to clap and cheer for known rapist and peadophile Roman Polanski, when it’s quite clear that he is guilty of his crimes, is hypocrisy at it’s finest. Streep, who is seen by most on the Liberal side of the scale as a shining beacon of righteousness, is at the heart of this movement in order to cover for her own failings. By having McGowan, who has slammed Streep for not noticing Weinstein’s past behaviour, as a voice of the #Timesup movement would be a catastrophic move, potentially exposing Streep’s hypocrisy to the point that the Liberal idiots who are blatantly ignoring it, would not be able to do so further.

metoo-2859980_960_720

Although Weinstein’s actions were certainly at the heart of the #Metoo and #Timesup movements, he certainly wasn’t the only person in Hollywood using his power to abuse people. There are supposedly untold numbers of abusers in Hollywood, and a countless number of victims left in their wake. Every single one of them need to be exposed and pay for their crimes, just as each and every victim deserves any help and support that can be offered.

Their voices need to be heard, and yet they were so obviously missing from the red carpet.

Why?

Because this entire event wasn’t just about exposing sexual abuse in Hollywood. It was never just about that.

The main point of it was to act as one big Feminist outreach program; a chance for women to “have their moment in the spotlight” and “take charge”, while riding a tidal-wave of virtue-signalling and hypocrisy.

And it was all built on the back of the suffering of REAL victims.

How do I know this?

Well, instead of having Queen Oprah (Yassssss! Queen!) giving her first inaugural speech as President-elect, or Connie Britton wearing a $400 sweater saying “poverty is sexist” in a non-ironic manner, or Debra Messing calling out E! for the Catt Sadler “pay-gap debacle”, surely they should have had the ACTUAL victims of misogyny and abuse stood out on the red carpet?

And not just the female victims that they failed to invite: what about the male victims of abuse? Lord knows there are plenty of them (though you’d be hard-pressed to actually find a cover story about them…).

Don’t get me wrong; I know you all made it quite clear that it was “time for men to step back and listen”, but in the name of EQUALITY, which, after all, is what Feminism is really all about, (according to any theoretical Feminist anyway) you could have brought out the uninvited women alongside other victims of Hollywood sexual abuse and exploitation. MALE ones, such as Terry Crews, and Anthony Rapp, and Corey Feldman. There could have been a huge picture of Corey Haim hung inside and outside the venue in order to remember and honour another victim of misogyny. Then, you could have all gathered in front of these people, these REAL victims and REAL Heroes, and knelt at their feet; knelt in front of them and chanted in one true voice:

“WE’RE SORRY! WE KNEW! WE ALL KNEW! AND WE LET IT HAPPEN!”

You’d be lucky if you could find more than 5 or 6 people out of the entire guest-list of the Golden Globes who didn’t actually know anything about the actions of Harvey Weinstein, or any of the sexual abusers in Hollywood. They knew, and they didn’t say anything because they couldn’t possibly risk losing any of the power they themselves had attained. Their careers, their money and their influence were and are far more important to them than actually exposing the people who afforded them it in the first place.

Harvey Weinstein was outed for what he really was and that was the opportune moment for these sycophantic morons to be able to prove that they do care and that they are virtuous people who only have your interests at heart.

At the Golden Globes their masks slipped off, exposing them as the power hungry, enabling frauds they really are.

Never forget this:
