I was just reading a good guy who was saying how proud he was of Danny Boyle’s Olympic ceremony and how proud he was of the country etc etc at that point. It makes a point of course that so called progressives are as proud and nationalistic as anyone but with an ambition for the country to be better and dare one say good. Yet they seem unprepared to look under the hood. In the same ways they don’t travel on buses in outer London full of bitter old and poor tired of being lectured on what they eat and smoke. Even Boyle’s centring on GOSH was hardly great given that Hospital Trusts bullying of doctors and the wholesale deaths and cover ups of Foundation Hospital moves not to mention 100s dying of preventable MRSA and CDIFF as Doctors and Administrators cashed in on dirty hospitals and Labour did nothing.
From 80s deaths squads to support for murderous theological wars in Yemen and over throwing Govts it does not like the Americans of Charlottesville are who we know Americans to be. Sure we chat to our liberal friends on the coast and they decry Trump and rightly so. Yet they have allowed him here through voter disinterest and indifference to how the economic idiocy called policy has for 37 years affected others and shrunk the middle class and the security of pensions.

They want poor and ignorant to just accept their lot without reaching desperately for the idiocy of an Orange silver spooned clown when all they offer was more of the same delivered by arguably the most patronising voice of the self righteous Democrats. They’ve sent people in a direction and then complain how far they take it and their reaction to it.
Even being right about LGBT, racial differences and women’s rights can’t be done in a non virtue signalling way that would win people over to its transparent correctness.
Democrats preach equality but push inequality and their own sense of self goodness and wonder why others don’t agree.
A popular meme is to contrast the European attitude to accepting Muslim refugees and other migrants because they are like the Jews so horribly let down in the 1930s. The habit of otherwise liberal westerners to equate Jews and Muslims and essentially challenge people not to be the made up Islamaphobia label. Continue reading “No Comparison”
