Do Labels Help Anti Racism?

For 2 groups people are very different; one group celebrates that; whilst another finds these differences hard to deal with and tries to come up with reasons to exclude the minorities and demonise them.

The latter group are of course racists and nationalists. I really don’t know how to deal with people who have invented rhetoric of their own ridiculous made up victim-hood.

The former identerists try to push ethnic differences as ‘things to celebrate’. They alienate people outside their group and their raising of minorities to hapless victims stigmatises. They stifle debate because most of us can’t be bothered to be insulted with labels.

I think the painting of people as hapless victims or worse a problem has a negative effect and reinforces stereotypes, and creates an impression of haplessness. It does not challenge the narrative of the morons but offers a more palatable alternative response to difference.

Self Serving Arseholes

Amber Rudd Home Secretary ended the scheme to import Child refugees. Her reasoning something about encouraging people to send lone children – resets bullshit detector. And it’s a drop in the ocean and with 100s of millions to be displaced by Climate Change a drop in the universe really. Nonetheless a  signal to the bigots who often rely on immigrants far more than more tolerant generations that she hates anyone foreign even children too. Even if it is largely irrelevant for a country of over 60 Million people to take 30,000 never mind 3,000. Continue reading “Self Serving Arseholes”

The Left Follies

It’s easy to suggest that the media or whoever are responsible for the eclipse of the ‘left’ parties of Europe. Irrelevant even when in power to be frank see Brown or Hollande. I am referring to New Labour here rather than whatever welcome Corbyn is destroying with random precision. This is a more general attack than on a particular party and to be honest could be used against most ‘liberal’ thinkers. It is also in the context of seeming liberals supporting a ruling ideology that forsook the poor and claimed GDP growth as Manna achieved by stoking the purchase of 2nd hand assets and the land they stood on as improved living standards.

Virtue-al Vote Losing

This shows the army of people who voted and generally do not vote in elections for me. The ones who maybe stopped voting Labour in 97 or 01 and were not there in 2005 – the Tories were so despised and the economy seemingly on track Labour actually had a majority off 35%.This minority are not interested in the kind of virtue signalling of Labour where expressions like ‘celebrating our diversity’ or any other I am a great person platitudes may even offend them.

By The Way You’re Losing The Election

Orlando shows many on the left unable to comprehend that someone brought up to hate gay people by hate preachers and his father was primarily influenced by his religion, Islam. That he may have been crazy and gay himself merely what turned him from a confused hater into a murder and terrorist. It’s beyond ridiculous to write stuff about homophobia when over half UK Muslims believe it should be illegal. You’re leaving the argument to the right with ‘virtue signalling’.
