Travellers destroy Thwaites Brewery in Blackburn UK

I know, I know – “they’re people too” and I just “don’t understand their lifestyles”

Spare me.

I’ve had absolutely enough of tip-toeing around subjects that are deemed taboo, due to ridiculous shouts of racism and a lack of empathy for other people’s situations.

I’m going to make it ABSOLUTELY clear how I feel about Gypsies and Travellers –

I respect the fact that you have chosen to live your lives the way you have; if you want to travel around and live from week to week, then that’s your choice. If you are respectful of the fact that people live near to where you park your caravans, then that’s great.

If you don’t –

 – illegally occupy people’s and business’s property

 – harass people walking near to your site

 – let your kids drive Quad Bikes around the local’s gardens or parks

 – let your horses roam free over people’s property

 – leave gas bottles and rubbish strewn everywhere

 – cause damage to people’s property 

then there shouldn’t be a problem.

I’ll give the time of day to ANYONE, regardless of skin colour, creed, religious affiliation or gender choice.

But behave like a moron, and I’ll certainly treat you like a moron.

This story – https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lancashire-44313866

comes from BBC News, and highlights exactly why people have such strong opinions on the behaviour of SOME (not ALL – nothing is ALL) Gypsies.

The sheer brazenness of setting up an illegal camp on a working business’s private property, causing £100,000 worth of damage, and then having an aggressive stand-off with Police, as if your behaviour should just be tolerated, is absolutely mind-blowing to the general public.

How do more people in the Gypsy community not see this?

Nobody who treats other people with care and respect should ever be treat poorly, or thrown into the same category as the worst of their community. People who call out ALL Gypsies and Travellers certainly aren’t helping the situation.

However, the ones who are acting in a way that isn’t socially acceptable, absolutely need to be called out; particularly by the Traveller community.

It’s simply wrong that ANY community can be aware of problems within itself and not call those people out. By ignoring or even applauding the bad elements in our communities, we are ourselves to blame for their behaviour.

Any outsider who calls out the poor behaviour of a community is immediately seen as a threat to the entire community as a whole, rather than the poor elements that, in the majority of cases (again, not ALL) the outsider was originally condemning. At the same time, those who call out these bad elements, could do with being a lot more selective about their rage. Saying “all Gypsies” or all anything simply isn’t helping.

Not all of ANY community, race, or religious following is inherently bad.

But the bad elements MUST be condemned – and it must start within their own community first.

After all, a group is only as strong as it’s weakest member.

Female entitlement does not exist – honestly

This story comes from The Mail Online, and just goes to show the absolute stupidity of some people.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5750501/Astonishing-moment-motorist-drives-car-path-half-marathon-runners-ignoring-restrictions.html

This absolute numpty decided that her needs were FAR greater than those of everyone else around her, and decided to drive her car through a barricade of cones, right into the path of a Half-Marathon, endangering everyone participating.

But it’s ok.

In her words she was – “driving slowly..”

Her reason for doing this was simple.

She was on her way to host a “Workshop” and had “no information” about the road closure.

Plus – she was driving slowly

Makes all the difference, right?

So after endangering the lives of several people, giving ridiculous excuses for her conduct and absolutely refusing to accept responsibility for her actions, how does she respond when told by a Plymouth City council Highways official to stop and wait for the Police?

“Well YOU can call the Workshop to tell them I’ll be late!”

You couldn’t make it up.

Privilege exists in ALL aspects of society, not just in Cis White Males. And although she doesn’t explicitly say something along the lines of “but I’m a woman!!” – you know for a fact it’s what she’s thinking.

The fact that hosting a “Workshop” is more important to her than the safety of everyone around her speaks volumes.

Just another “enlightened” soul on the Path to Entitlement.

Why the Grid-Girls and Walk On Girls saga will be the death of feminism

Ok Feminists, you’ve finally done it now.

You’ve finally proven to the entire world just how regressive and authoritarian you have become. Anti-feminists have been saying for years how Feminism isn’t about fighting for women’s rights anymore, but that it is now about projecting your world view onto the rest of us Proles. We must say what you say, think as you think, and relinquish all sense of self that we have; all in order for women to RULE THE WORLD!

I mean, you guys aren’t even trying to be stealthy about it anymore. You used to at least try to pretend that it wasn’t about taking power from men, but simply having an equal share of such power. You used to use phrases like “Equality between the sexes” and “feminism is for men and women.”

What a load of clap-trap.

With feminism’s latest attack on “all that is misogynist”, the mask has finally slipped. It’s no longer about women’s rights. Well, at least not ALL women.

I bring your attention to two articles, both of which highlight exactly why feminism has signed it’s own death warrant.

https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/5435188/darts-the-masters-tournament-models-scrapped/

This article from The Sun highlights the story of the Walk On Girls (women who escort the players into the arena) from the Premier League of Darts, being scrapped after the story broke about the infamous Presidents Club dinner at The Dorchester.

(For my take on the aftermath of that story see my post: Presidents Club – why Great Ormond Street are WRONG to return their donations)

The next article is also from The Sun, and brings us the news that Formula One is now axing their Grid-Girls (promotional models used in Formula One) from the sport because:

“We don’t believe the practice is appropriate or relevant to Formula 1 and its fans, old and new, across the world.”

https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/motorsport/5467725/formula-one-end-use-of-grid-girls-grand-prix-races/

So, the reason feminists are celebrating these decisions?

No surprises for guessing that “the objectification of women” is the top one.

Wasn’t one of the core principles of First-wave feminism, to fight for the rights of women in order for them to be allowed the freedom to make their own choices? I mean, it’s not like feminism is about giving women the right to choose what type of employment they should willingly participate in, is it?

Or is it just the type of employment that most hard-core, extremist, non-conforming, man-hating-anarchists wouldn’t stand a chance of being successful in? Shaving legs, taking care of your appearance and smiling, are generally not something that radical feminists are famous for after all…

Bitchiness aside, I honestly feel that a lot of the negativity towards these type of employment roles, simply stems from one thing – jealousy.

Don’t get me wrong; men get jealous as well.

I’d love to be a strapping 6′ 4″, bronzed, chiselled-hunk of a man, with the looks of Chris Hemsworth and the dick of John Holmes (without the disease of course). My wife would love that too, although she did get excited the other day when watching Thor Ragnarok; when The Hulk came on-screen naked, she started shouting at the TV because she didn’t get to see his: “green Hulk-dick.”

Anyway, I digress…

I’m not however, any of those things, yet I, and most non-feminists (yes, that includes women as well), don’t begrudge people for being beautiful.

We celebrate them.

So what if men are looking at these women because they are beautiful? Do feminists really believe that the women doing this job don’t know that?

Men are often accused of treating women like air-heads, and seeing women as an inferior species who can’t think for themselves. Who’s guilty of that now, fem-tards? You guys are the ones saying that these women, who clearly know what the job entails and who have clearly chosen to do the job in the first place, are being victimised and exploited.

A little patronising, don’t you think?

objectification

Also, do women not also objectify people?

Should we ban the use of catwalk models: used solely for the reason that they are beautiful people, thus helping to sell a product?

What about models in beauty-product commercials?

Male and female strippers?

Walk-On Chaperones at awards ceremonies, such as the Oscars?

Actors and actresses?

Pop stars?

These, and many more professions all, to a degree, fall under the same category that Grid Girls and Walk On Girls fall under – the use of someone’s physical beauty to promote a product.

And do you know what else these professions all have in common?

They are all done by people who have CHOSEN to do them.

Two things need to happen here:

  1. The owners of the companies who have ended the employment of so many women, need to grow a pair and stop caving in to such utter nonsense as this. The few don’t speak for the many.
  2. As for feminists and the rest of the PC brigade: just stop. Stop with the idea that’s it’s somehow wrong for humans to be attracted to one another. It’s a part of our nature, and it’s one of the reasons that the human race has lasted so long. The fact that you may not agree with it, doesn’t mean that the rest of us do.

Feminism used to be about fighting for the rights of women everywhere; to be able to make their own decisions, and carve out their own paths in life. Now, it’s simply become a tool with which to indoctrinate and conform; to let men and women know that if feminists don’t like it, then neither should you.

These women are now out of a job thanks to feminism’s new “puritanical” ideals; jobs that these women willingly took part in.

Who would have thought, that feminists would be so against the idea of a woman giving consent and using her right to choose?

Guess what feminists? Men and women alike are all on to you.

In fact, you could say: #Timesup

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.

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?

A lack of transparency – Politicians Ignoring the electorate

Angela Rayner, Labour MP for Ashton-under-Lyne has blocked me on Twitter.

 

220px-Official_portrait_of_Angela_Rayner_crop_2

 

No, I didn’t harass her. I didn’t use foul-language. I didn’t threaten or abuse her in anyway shape or form.

I simply asked her a question. This one:

@AngelaRayner blocking @rantsen_things on @Twitter

Hardly what you would call an abusive Tweet?

My question was in response to her blocking another Twitter user; someone who simply asked if Ms. Rayner sympathised with Ester McVey, the new Secretary of State for the DWP, who was branded a “stain on humanity” and someone who “should be lynched” by Labour Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer John McDonnell.

Johnmcdonnellmp

Just so you all know; I’m fully aware that everyone has the right to block anyone they want, for any reason, on Twitter. Any abuse including threats of physical harm, death threats and so on shouldn’t be tolerated, whether the recipient is a man or a woman.

But blocking people for asking a question?

Come on Angela, you’re an MP after all. You’re job is to be asked questions by the public. Just because a question might show up some partisan hypocrisy in you, doesn’t mean you should run away from it.

It’s got to the point now with MPs that they can have an opinion on a matter; state it; and then simply ignore or block out completely, any sort of discerning voice. Nobody is allowed to question or disagree with anything that a politician says anymore, and that’s just wrong.

ignore

You’re elected by the people. For the people.

It’s your duty to be held accountable for the things you say and the opinions you hold. It’s not your job as a “voice of the people” to ignore the voters, for fear of looking bad in their eyes.

What kind of example does it set for people; especially young voters, when the very people they elect into positions of authority, can’t even answer a simple question about a subject involving abuse and ridicule?

It’s Orwellian at best.

Should you be asked to put up with abuse? Absolutely not.

As a Politician, should you be able to answer a reasonable and polite question with regards to your refusal to condemn someone who has made horrifically abusive comments?

The “Ayes” have it.

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.
