UP & AT IT, MUESLIS!

 Just as Western thinking about savage Islamolunacy reached a new low ebb – e.g. with UK PM Daft Dave warning Pak gals that IS/ISIS/ISIL/Daesh/Beheadistan could be bad for their health, musing he might toughen England’s Labour-beloved ‘hate speech’ laws, then adjourning to the beaches to mull over a possible RAF bombing sortie into Syria in October – the jiheadists obliged by suicide-bombing just inside Turkey, killing 32 young Kurds and injuring 120 at a cultural centre in Suruc (Daily Mail, 20 vii).

Solunni Turkey, equipped with the largest army in Europe (to be ready to fight its Nato ally, Greece), had apparently been biding its time in the Solunni vs Shitite civil war (which a thousand years of Muesli theological scholarship had failed to settle), waiting for ISIL to make a mess of the Syrians and Kurds before setting up its own Caliphate in the Godforsaken area.

But the Suruc slaughter in Turkey itself – followed by Kurds killing two police in revenge for Turkish tardiness – got Turkey off its bottom sooner than planned (i.e. before Western agreement to a Turkish Caliphate had been achieved). Turkey at last gave permission to the USA to bomb the ISIL jeheadingists from the Incirlik airbase in southern Turkey; it began a little bombing itself – including of the more rebellious and statehood-aspiring Kurds; and it embarked on the construction of a wall on its 700-mile Syrian border that would help stop mad young Mueslis from Europe flocking via Turkey to join ISIL in Syria.

Well-merited and explosive assault by Turkey on ISIL would give the West time to ponder its long-unanswered questions of what to do about Muesli immigration, dress codes, FGM, forced marriage, marital rape, overbreeding (esp. by first cousins), benefit scrounging, deliberate de-literacy, cruelty to animals and the drugging, raping and pimping of White weenies.


ALL AT IT, THE BRITS!

Following up the theme of how Britain’s great and good (and not just young Princess Elizabeth, q.v.) went some way along with German Führerworship of the 1930s, Boris Johnson (despite a tiring week of problems for Boris buses, Boris Island and Boris water cannon) quickly came up with the name of Liberal, welfarist and war-winning PM David Lloyd George.

Apparently, even after Hitler’s re-taking the Rhineland 1936 and making his anti-Semitism plain, DLG had paid a call and declared Schicklgruber “a born leader of men, a magnetic dynamic personality with a single-minded purpose, a resolute will and a dauntless heart” and “the George Washington of Germany.”

Yes, a degree of support for AH was not just from conservative aristocrats who feared communism and from Oxford progressives who feared war: it came even from a top Liberal politician and statesman who would rank with Churchill and Wellington as among the very greatest British PMs.


AFRICAN ETHNIES AT IT AGAIN

 The bizarre Western effort to keep Burundi multicultural and democratic met a brick wall as the elite minority Tutsi declined to vote in an illegal presidential election aimed to re-appoint Hutu-favouring Pierre Nkurunziza for a third term  (Guardian, 21 vii). In the run-up to the election, some 100 had been killed and 150K displaced; and the future was thought to hold civil war in which the Tutsis would be assisted by many of their fellow ethnics who had escaped previous Hutu killings and found refuge in the neighbouring Democratic Republic of the Congo. Already, 50% of food consumed in Burundi (pop. 10M) was donated by the West.


PEECEE CALIFORNIA

Writing from Beverly Hills, columnist and mother Celia Walden told Sunday Telegraph readers how peecee and kindred sensitivities began early: among three-year-olds, or at least their mothers (4 vii, Magazine). Quite apart from tales and jokes for tinies having to avoid race, IQ and eugenics, entertaining stories had to avoid kiddie-snatching (‘Rumpelstiltskin’), dwarves (‘Snow White,’ ‘Rumpelstiltskin’) and the topics of pregnancy, childbirth, poisoning and death in which fairy tales tend to abound. Touching on such matters would yield frantic hand gestures from assembled moms.

Fortunately for consensus-seeking mothers, help was at hand in James Finn’s Politically Correct Bedtime Stories – in which modern bowdlerization, for example, Snow White and the Wicked Queen end up opening a spa and women’s conference centre in which to hold “retreats, caucuses and ovariums for the sisters of the world.”


MULTICULTI MADNESS

 The folly of multicultural idealism was given an exposure in The Crossing: My Journey to the Shattered Heart of Syria by Samar Yazbek. This brave, pretty and rebellious Syrian-Alawite-Shitite writerette on women’s issues (married at 16 and divorced and a mother by 20), had left Damascus for Paris in 2011 but, despite being threatened with bloody beatings and crucifixion, repeatedly returned to stimulate others to realize her optimistic vision of a country in which “we are all just Syrian, not Sunni, not Shia, not Alawite.”

Only in 2014 did she reconcile herself to a last smuggling into Turkey and to making the best of life in exile (Sunday Times, 28 vi, Culture). (The Alawites, the relatively elite clan who lived chiefly on Syria’s north-western seabord, had long attempted their own multiculturalism, adding a three-in-one godhead, reincarnation and various secret beliefs [possibly including that women did not have souls] to their already Sunnified Shi-ism; but all such ingenious blending would prove vain against the jiheadists of ISIS which Western idealism had unleashed in Iraq.)


WHAT ‘SOCIAL’ PSYCHOLOGY SHOWS

How easily could you help run a Nazi death camp? A cheap and pointless prison with only physical violence disallowed? Such a prison where you were paid by a university professor to play your version of a guard with ‘inmates’ who were similarly paid fellow students told to obey? Might you joke in the faces of ‘inmates’, sometimes demand stripping naked for unnecessary de-lousing, or decline requests for medical attention as frivolous?

Forty years after social psychologist Philip Zimbardo ran his infamous Stanford Prison Experiment (q.v.) which stirred anxiety about ‘authoritarianism’ (just as had Stanley Milgram’s pseudo-shock-inflicting students who accepted professorial instructions to punish what they thought were slow learners in a memory experiment), readers of peecee Nature (which had for twenty years found it politick to disdain the hereditarian views of its founder) were given the opportunity to rehearse such anxiety (23 vii, Brendan Maher).

Strange! Would scientists, scholars and students worry more about human greed if paid students agreed to steal from another paid student whose own instructions were to leave his money lying around? Or worry more about lust and female rapism if paid girls agreed to fellate a protesting boy who was paid to offer no physical or angry resistance?

Surely, the only real cause for anxiety would be that ‘social’ psychologists could make an ideological issue out of such farcical ‘experiments.’ What on earth did idealists expect would happen if the elaborately constructed edifice of morality and society were stripped away – as when authority itself was removed in William Golding’s ‘Lord of the Flies.’


BURKA REALISM

 In a helpful article about the restrictiveness of modern ‘British’ Muslim families, esteemed Shitite agony aunt Yasmin Alibhai-Brown {who had once kindly used one of her columns to support me against paedohysteria} offered a seldom-heard explanation of the purpose of the burqa (Sunday Times, 12 vii, Magazine):

"....A few years back [in London], a fully veiled woman recognized me and followed me home. She threw off her burkha. She was covered in bruises, bite marks, cigarette burns. A chemistry graduate from a northern town, she [had been] beaten up by her father and brother for speaking to a man at a bus stop. “You see? We are hidden so nobody sees our wounds. Domestic violence is so common in Muslim families, they don’t even think it is wrong.”


HELP AT HAND FOR LABOUR

As Britain’s electorally devastated Labour Party let its far-leftists loose to parade unreconstructed support for ‘Old Labour’ leadership candidate Jeremy Corbyn, 94, who had divorced one of his wives because she didn’t favour comprehensive schools (prompting Rev. Blair to say those whose hearts were with him, needed a transplant), advice to go English nationalist and jack the EU came from Telegraph columnist Allister Heath (23 vii) – urging an empowering consumerism that would champion patients, parents, public transport users and plebiscites (against state capitalism) and provide an alternative to Daft Dave’s determination to champion workers (against welfarist shirkers); and even the mangey Corbyn himself declared he was not averse to ending Britain’s subservient subscription to the Fourth Reich.

{Only problem: the British establishment was quite as dedicated to low-IQ immigration, to cheap labour, to state super-stipends for armchair do-gooders and to peecee tyranny as were the bureaucrats of Brussels.}


SCHOOL ATTAINMENTS 60% HERITABLE; ABILITY GENERAL  

Children’s differences in exam results as teenagers are 60% due to genetic differences and only 18% due to environment. Heredity was more than three times as important as school and home life differences combined. Such was the result of analyses by researchers under Bob Plomin at King’s College London of GCSEs sat by 12,500 twins (half identical, half fraternal) (Scientific Reports; Guardian, 23 vii; D.Mail, 24 vii).

About a half of the influence of heredity was attributable to the g [general intelligence, cf. IQ] factor; but the other half was unrelated to g and was presumed by researchers to reflect genetic differences in factors like persistence, imagination, curiosity, memory, conscientiousness, creativity etc.

Said Plomin: “We found that academic achievement in English, mathematics, science, humanities, second languages and art were all affected by the same genes. People may think that they’re good at one subject and bad at another, but in reality most people are strikingly consistent.”

Urging teachers to attend to pupils’ individual differences, Plomin said that, while talking about genetics and education was no longer the taboo that it had been twenty years previously, education professionals were slow to adapt teaching methods in the face of new scientific findings.


TRUMP CARRIES ON OUTSPEAKING

 Pursuing his relatively race-realistic US Presidential campaign, The Donald (q.v.), arriving at the Texas border with Mexico, continued his warnings about the Hispanic invasion of America which he provided the last chance of arresting (D.Telegraph, 24 vii):

"Mexico doesn’t want to house someone in a prison for thirty years when the US will do it. Mexico’s leaders are much more cunning than our leaders. I think border guards know that."

Inspired a little by Trump’s effort, American Renaissance came up with an apt new and rude term for America’s ‘conservatives’ who had long ago decided to smile on the invasion when not looking the other way (24 vii): they were ‘cuckservatives’ – political cuckolds who hoped that acceptance of indignity would give them the illusion of control.


SWEDES PREPARE TO REPEL BOARDERS

 The Swedish Democrats, Sweden’s nationalist party, reached 23% in opinion polls, only 1% behind the front-running Socialists – a dramatic advance from the 6.5% supporting it when it was founded in 2010 (AmRen, 23 vii). Supporters planned a ‘gay pride’ march on 29th July that would pass through ‘Afritard’ areas of Stockholm that were 75% Muslim, aiming to provoke yags and feminoids to come out in their true colours as ‘anti-racists’ who basically sought the end of White culture.

An AmRen correspondent explained: “The story is that in every European nation in which the political class launches a program of massive, uncontrolled third-world immigration, eventually a nationalist anti-immigration party is formed, and grows in strength, purely as a backlash.” {Labour please note how to be electable!}


LABOUR TO LEAVE MINI-MARK

 As it slid towards dementia in its thoughtless, speechless and long-drawn-out post-Election leadership contest, the Labour Party – not content with a third of its MPs revealing they rather fancied the pro-IRA, pro-Mandela, pro-Martin Luther King, anti-Queen 66-yr-old Jeremy Corbyn – added the new concept of “sexist undertones” to the peecee litany of hate crimes.

When its (Blairite) Lord Falconer ventured that no candidate but his own (unheard-of) Andy Burnham could appeal to all sections of the party, he was promptly denounced by candidate Yvette for the “sexist undertones” of trying to demean Yvette and a Liz and limit the contest to one between men – though Lord Falconer had not in fact mentioned anything about candidates’ sex ooops gender.

Yes, rather than grasp the heaven-sent nationalist opportunities provided by the EU making a 5-year mess of Greece, A/As streaming into Europe, and the West’s deposition of despots around the Med killing, maiming and displacing millions, Labour preferred merely to leave a contribution of naughty disallowed ‘undertones’ to the operation of peecee tyranny. You couldn’t make it up!

MIGHTY MACK II RECALLED  



On what would have been the 80th birthday of the genial, generous and g-loaded Nick Mackintosh (q.v.) -- the most eminent modern psychologist to have shifted his focus from animal conditioning to human intelligence (with the help of mounting evidence for the g factor and its substantial link to mental speed of intake) -- a nice note appeared in Scientific American (9 vii).

The memoir – by an American visitor to the great scholar and professor in Cambridge – bestowed the highest praise on NJM’s IQ and Human Intelligence even if it did not quite reach the dizzy height of a 2011 review titled ‘Ignoring Chrissandra’ of comparing The g Factor to George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four.

{“If I were to choose the three most important political works of the twentieth century, I think they would be George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, Kevin MacDonald’s Culture of Critique, and Chris Brand’s The g Factor.  Orwell’s novel is the most readable and MacDonald’s trilogy the most radical, but Brand’s polemic is of the most general importance. ....In Greek myth, the prophetess Cassandra was doomed to be always right and always disbelieved.

In twentieth and twenty-first century Britain, Chris Brand has been a Chrissandra: his prognoses and prophecies have been ignored by the political establishment and he has been cast into what East Germans used to call ‘internal exile.’ Ignoring Cassandra led inevitably to the fall of Troy; ignoring Chrissandra is leading inevitably to the death of the West.”}


ENVIRONMENTALIMITS

 An autobiographical memoir by classical pianist James Rhodes (Instrumental, 2015, Edinburgh:Canongate) revealed he had “suffered appalling sexual abuse at the hands of a gym teacher in his primary school between the ages of six and 10 (Sunday Times, 31 v, Culture) apparently resulting in drug use, drinking, illness, self-mutilation, occasional psychiatric hospitalization and girl problems.

Nevertheless, at 40 the author was enjoying a highly successful career (including a profitable ten-year break as a banker in the City, a happy (second) marriage, celebrity friends and special rapport with younger audiences


RACE THE REALITY  

Amidst the uncertainties, horrors, lunches and incompetences of the Great Five-year EU/Eurozone Trainwreck, just one certainty shone persistently through: the north-south racial divide of Western Europe between the austerity-accepting, centre-right-governed beer-drinking countries that thought Greece should repay its debts and the French-led sun-kissed fun-lovers who guessed a bit more cash could be squeezed out of Germany to support their countries’ proclivities to fascism, communism, socialism, corruption, wine-bibbing, military failure, civil war, military takeovers, reckless driving and general noisiness.

Just how such differences had come about was presumably connected with White Protestantism’s stress on words, reading, truth and honesty as contrasted with Catholic and Orthodox preferences for pictures, visual style, display and superstition; but IQ had to provide a component of the account – with almost all Nordic countries having respectable intelligence (the exceptions being tiny Lithuania and Éire, 80% Catholic countries of IQ 91 and 92 respectively) whereas ClubMed furnished big duds in Greece (IQ 92*) and Portugal (IQ 95) along with 73% Orthodox (and 25% Muslim) Cyprus (IQ 91).

Just why Milkmaid Merkel should wish her country to serve as paymaster in a German Fourth Reich of incompatibles and bad debtors was a mystery except in so far as France needed to be kept on board to provide the EU with the Bomb, an aircraft carrier, champagne, brie cheese and an aura of revolutionary liveliness – however bloodied by the repeated failures of French idealism.

* ”....[the Greeks’] industrial, scientific and technological achievements can be summarised on a postage stamp.” – Historian Max Hastings, ‘Deceitful Greek bailout is sure to end in tears,’ Daily Mail, 14 vii.


DIVIDE AND RULE

 After years of tolerating, enriching and arming Solunni Arabs in the hope that they would at least refrain from new direct attacks on Israel, America {wisely, and as long urged in this blog} decided to beef up the more Europeanized Shitites in Islam’s civil war by letting Iran develop nuclear power so long as it got no nearer to having a Bomb than was Saudi Arabia to purchasing one from Pakilooniland.

Thus was completed the world’s progress under Yankee superpowerdom from the Bomb being in the hands of only Anglo-Saxon people to its being available to a dozen countries having alarming degrees of communism, corruption, slavery and psychoticism; but a Guardian reader noted the bright side of bringing Shitites into Western graces (15 vii – discussing ‘winners’ and ‘losers’ in Washington’s deal with Tehran):

"I will add, as a supporter of the State of Israel, that, though Netanyahu is a looser, with this deal, Israel is a winner. Contrary to the ravings of Bibi, a strong, stable Iran will mean that the Sunni Arab world will have two "ultimate" foes. And won't know which to fight, or try to fight both. And if Israel has the sense to sit back and watch while Islam has its thirty years war, they will be able to enjoy a long period of security. Cynical, I know, but, I think it may well work."


NATIONAL SOCIALISM ON LEFT AGENDA

 As Labour’s leadership contest threw up no-one of interest except an elderly pre-Blairite who was backed by the biggest trade unions (which themselves embarked on annoying Londoners), thinking lefties began to toy with the idea that English Labour should become more English and, in particular, anti-EU.

Distressed by Mutti Merkel bearing down on the underdog borrowers of Greece {though these had probably salted their 4th Reich profits in tax-free Swiss bank accounts and the ever-booming London property market}, top Guardian columnists George Monbiot and Owen Jones showed distinct signs of movement {as advocated for Labour in this blog}, with the latter writing (15 vii):

"As austerity-ravaged Greece was placed under what Yanis Varoufakis terms a “postmodern occupation”, its sovereignty overturned and compelled to implement more of the policies that have achieved nothing but economic ruin, Britain’s left is turning against the European Union, and fast.

    “Everything good about the EU is in retreat; everything bad is on the rampage,” writes George Monbiot, explaining his about-turn.

“All my life I’ve been pro-Europe,” says Caitlin Moran, “but seeing how Germany is treating Greece, I am finding it increasingly distasteful.”

Nick Cohen believes the EU is being portrayed “with some truth, as a cruel, fanatical and stupid institution”. “How can the left support what is being done?” asks Suzanne Moore. “The European ‘Union’. Not in my name.” There are senior Labour figures in Westminster and Holyrood privately moving to an “out” position too.

What a roll call of the great, good, wimpish and welfare-crazed! But it would be a way of stemming the haemorrhage of Labour votes to nationalism that had happened at the General Election.


SELECTION SUPPORTED

 Amidst the confusions of British party politics – as ‘Conservatives’ supported peecee tyranny, forced through yag marriage and demanded employers shame themselves if they paid less to female staff, and ‘Labour’ advertised itself as being a ‘One Nation’ party and saw its intellectuals prepare to revert to anti-Europeanism – a question was ‘Which party would ever again back educational selection – cf grammar schools?’ This, together with proper experimentation (as in medicine) was the only way to give Britain a chance in a competitive future; but Britain’s politicos – cowardly and ignorant in equal measure -- were virtually unanimous in abjuring such elitism.

Good, then, that at least Mail columnist Peter Hitchens kept on backing school choice at 11 by parents after informed discussion (15 vii) – the German model derived from Sir Cyril Burt and advocated in The g Factor (1996, Chap.4).


POPULATION REALISM  

 What was to be done about the burgeoning peoples of India – currently 1.3B and due to be 1.7B by mid-century? No problem, said an article given houseroom by the Times of India (16 vii)....:

"....New Delhi needs to facilitate emigration of 300 million or more to allow itself some breathing space and gain greater global heft. It has to be in a formulation that constitutes a win-win to both giver and receiver. Already, it is accepted that fears of a brain drain were overblown. India has benefited more on account of its emigrating population. Emigration may yet be seen as an act of patriotism that carries the syncretic ethos of India worldwide".


‘SECRET’ OF SOCIAL HISTORY ‘EXPOSED’

Several mysteries accompanied the Sun’s front-page publication of a 1933 photo of the young Princess Elizabeth and her mother giving Hitler salutes for the camera, apparently at the playful behest of the future Queen’s uncle.

How had the picture (one frame of a 17-second video) come to light? Did the Queen (or anyone else) have any recall of the context and motivation of the incident? Who was the cameraman (most likely the Queen’s beloved father, whom she would have happily practised saluting in the latest modern manner)? But, above all, what precisely was the ‘social history interest’ which the Sun claimed for publishing the picture? – Might it be the wide popularity of Adolf Hitler’s elevation to power in Germany of 1933, not just with the anti-communist right and with infatuated German women but with the many socialists, pacifists and progressives (exemplified in the Oxford Union) who would stay broadly loyal to the Führer until he launched Operation Barbarossa against their idealized USSR in 1941?

The left’s post-1945 success in drawing a veil over its substantial erstwhile support for German National Socialism was certainly of the greatest social-historical interest – enabling the left’s ‘long march through the institutions’ towards cultural Marxism [political correctness] without frightening the horses.

UGLY, CALLOUS, LAZY

  This was how top functionaries of University College London found themselves described by top jester Rod Liddle as he savaged the treatment that the “halfwits” had meted out to Nobelist Sir Tim Hunt (whose throw-away dismissal of himself as a “chauvinist” had not prevented his actual sudden dismissal by the dean of faculty at the college where he had worked for a lifetime – q.v.) (Sunday Times, 5 vii).

Other troubles for the luni were that it turned out to have a record of inviting mad Mueslis to hold forth on their views that yags were “dirty dogs who should be murdered” and that Jews, Christians and “filthy non-Muslim doctors” needed seeing to – views hardly concordant with the usual UCL lib-left consensus; and that the eminent American academic, Nassim Taleb, cancelled an invited visit – pointing out as he did so that UCL ran a campus in Qatar where some workers were not allowed passports.

Liddle lashed the “hypocrisy, stupidity and callousness” of a college which had – as it trembled before PeeCee – brought about “the deliberate destruction of a human being” and, despite acrimonious discussions among its bureaufarts, been unable to end the matter with dignity (e.g. the early retirement of its impetuous dean).

    Meanwhile, matching the mega-embarrassing incompetence of UCL, Mueslis of Israel’s West Bank spurned the coalition of minorities and whitewashed a mural of the yag ‘rainbow’ flag – leaving a ‘yag pride’ march of 10K to take place only on the Jewish side of the Jerusalem wall that kept the (once equally left-loved) religionists from each other’s throats.


PEECEE LUNI SPURNS BEST & BRIGHTEST

 Despite daily reminders of deep-seated sex differences – with Wimbledon’s women unable to play five sets, with Japan and America dominating international wymmin’s football (unlike the real thing), and with the Downing Street team preparing the UK Chancellor’s widely acclaimed Budget (for ‘workers not shirkers’) having only one womyn among its six members – bureaucademics of UCL continued to provide amusement by refusing to reinstate ‘sexist’ Sir Tim (D.Telegraph, 9 vii).

They thus flew hilariously in the faces of Richard Dawkins, Lewis Wolpert, Boris Johnson, a dozen Nobelists and a score of the college’s own honorary fellows. Ironically, UCL’s venerated ‘spiritual father,’ Jeremy Bentham, while deploring all prejudicial discrimination (though never himself marrying), as a true liberal had also been a champion of free speech; UCL offered no explanation of why only 33% of its senior academic staff were female; and no agreed account was available of what Sir Tim had said and how he had said it.

{In all this it was of course a pity that Sir Tim had given feminoid hysterics encouragement by joking of himself as a “chauvinist monster,” by offering a placatory apology when none was necessary, and by resigning instead of demanding a proper hearing and trial. – He had perhaps wanted to avoid scrutiny of his own ‘love in the lab’ problems of the 1980s (see Daily Mail, 10 vii).

Sir Tim’s defender, Richard Dawkins, also had a reputation for being a ladies’ man in the lab – at one time having slept with all but one of his female staff.}


ETHNIES AT IT (AGAIN)

 As thousands of Muslim Uighurs were killed by Chinese, a hundred of their compatriots made it out to Thailand, apparently headed to Turkey and perhaps the Jiheadistan of ISIS. But Thailand’s military government of Buddhists was unsympathetic to this operation and, not having signed up to UN refugee pieties, promptly returned them to China, which was likewise uninterested in any moves towards a Greater Turkestan (Guardian + correspondents, 10 vii).

{The Thais evidently took the same dim view of the Uighur Muslim as they and Burma’s Buddhist monks and government did of the Rohingya [q.v.] In this they were well in line with the sentiments of Western publics – if not of the West’s spineless ooops saintly politicos and leftists who had put admiration for Jewish culture and achievement behind them and become protectors of Solunni superstition.}


PERILS OF PAEDOHYSTERIA

After several years of casting paedophilic aspersions against MPs of the 1980s, including his own predecessor in Rochdale, Labour MP Simon Danczuk, 48, found himself locked out of his home by his wife, accused by her of being a violent and deceitful alcoholic, signed up with a psychiatrist, and having to abandon his paedohunting due to being overstressed by the tales of abuse that his inquiries had brought him.

By contrast, wife Karen, 32 and a Labour councillor, appeared to be in good shape despite her hubbie’s campaign publicizing that she had been repeatedly tortured and raped from age 6 till 12 by a brother and half-brother, was having affairs with a car salesman, her gym instructor and another stud, and loved nothing better than to ‘twitter’ ‘selfies’ of her considerable cleavage.



Needless to say, Councillor Karen was dubbed ‘Queen of the Selfies’ by admirers and was said to be preparing to appear on Celebrity Big Brother, Strictly Come Dancing, Game of Thrones, Married At First Sight etc. Apparently a few years of rampant brotherly abuse were better for the psyche than a dismal obsession with persecuting long-dead paedos


EQUALITY A KILLER  

It was presumably the passion for enforced female ‘equality’ of opportunity that resulted in a 54-year-old grandmother being selected as a court guard in charge of such felons as GBH case Humphrey Burke, 22, who put her in a coma as he tried to escape outside London’s Blackfriars Crown Court – a coma from which she never emerged, so Burke found himself on an additional murder charge (D.Telegraph, 11 vii).


MUESLI MAYHEM MINIMIZED  

Contrary to post-Saddam images of horror – with piles of corpses discovered each morning, Baghdad had become a peaceful city where children skipped and jumped among new greenery and fashionable ladies smoked exotic tobaccos through hubble-bubble pipes. Yes, said the BBC’s World Service (12 vii, 09:05), the famous city had become geographically segregated along Solunni vs Shitite lines, and all the residents had to fear was that Western multicults would attempt to impose peecee brotherly love on tribal sects which had hated each other for a thousand years.


FREE SPEECH ON SKYE DEFENDED

 When theology professor Donald Macleod was stripped of his 20-year weekly column for the West Highland Free Press after he warned against the rise of Islam, he was stoutly defended by the newspaper’s founder, former Labour MP Brian Wilson, by the Moderator [leader] of the Free Church of Scotland, and by two lady journalists who resigned from the paper in disgust (Scotsman, 12 vii) – though Wilson then found his own 40-year column cancelled, moving him to remark ironically on “the joys of employee ownership” (such takeovers having been allowed in socialism-crazed Scotland since 2009).

RELIGION REALISM  

The exposure on Black Friday (q.v.) of the breadth and depth of the horrors of the West and its gormless peecee ‘leadership’ elicited unwonted realism from an army chief-of-staff (albeit safely retired), one Lord Dannatt, who noted that top Mueslis had been distinctly backward in coming forward to condemn jihadic violence (Sunday Mail, 28 vi); and from PM Daft Dave, who at last admitted that the West was up against not just “terror” (the safe option preferred for years by pundits and politicos) but “Islamic terror.”

Lord Dannatt’s frankness earned him an invitation from superstar interviewer Andrew Neil to a four-man critique on ‘Sunday Politics’ of peecee pussyfooting around Islam’s tendencies to aggression, child prostitution, homophobia, anti-Semitism and misogyny – a shrewd move by the Beeb as it came under fire from the UK’s new Conservative government for its well-known bias towards the left and the left’s favoured minorities.

Boris ‘Bojo’ Johnson (now MP and in hot pursuit of the Tory leadership) warmed to the theme and spelled out in his Telegraph column that some term needed to be found for rabid Mueslis that acknowledged that they had something to do with Islam (29 vi).

    DD followed up by proposing legislation to criminalize ‘disruptive’ ‘extremist’ intolerance of faiths, tolerance of intolerance, yagophobia and public proposals for “the subjugation of women” – though this substitute for mosque closures would probably get used more against Christians than against MISlims (attacks on whom would quickly be condemned as ‘racist’ or Islamophobic by MSM, politicos, lawbugs and kindred Islamapologists)....

DD’s new mouthings did indicate a real smidgeon of a shift towards recognizing there was some kind of problem with Islam, agreed the Guardian (30 vi); but his only practical proposal to bear down especially on Mueslis was a restriction of state funding of translation services -- for Pakistanis usually needed their cases translated into Urdu so they could understand the state-funded work of lawyers, social workers, teachers and medics on their behalf.

    DD received no support against Islam from Britain’s luniversities – twelve of which (mainly in London) hypocritically claimed they would continue to support the ‘free speech’ of murderous Mueslis, even though that high principle had not been applied to the post-prandial jocosity of Nobelist Sir Tim Hunt.

But Tunisia showed resolution that would appal Britoid lib-lefties by announcing it would close within a week those eighty mosques in the country that were not already under government supervision to ensure they did not “spread venom” (Financial Times, 28 vi); and the Governor/Mayor of Lombardy (Italy’s economic engine room, which had already installed security cameras in mosques and banned any new construction of non-Catholic places of worship) promised similar closures.

From 2010, Angola (where 1% of the 19M population was Muslim) was widely reported to be closing and burning mosques and madrasas and halting the construction of new ones (Wikipedia, 2 vii 2015). (Angola granted ‘freedom of religion’ only to cohesive groups of at least 100K having agreed leadership – i.e. not divided into sects.)

Egypt – surrounded by IS – was embarked on closing 27K of its smaller mosques (to suppress extremism, or at least force its preachers into the open) (Shoebat.com, iii 2015); and it responded to the Tunisian massacre and IS killing of its top prosecutor by declaring war on IS and sending more troops to secure its province of Sinai, killing 123 IS vermin in two days.

Even harassed Syria managed to kill dozens of rapacious IS jiheadists (in besieged Aleppo), putting the West to shame – though the French National Front at least wanted mosque closures; and Germany had closed at least one mosque (in Bremen) for exhorting youth to join IS (Jihadwatch, xii 2014).

    The Quran contained 100 passages inciting violence, mutilation, killing (esp. beheading) and the insulting of Christians. The Quran was taught to Muslim children as the exact word of God, to be learned by rote from unlettered and self-appointed "Imams." Any person not committed to seeking political Islam (government by Sharia law) for his country was not considered a true Muslim. (Independent correspondents, 2 vii).


EGALITARIAN EXAGGERATOR

 The fat Black female teacher of journalism, Connie St Louis, who had denounced Sir Tim Hunt for sexism and got him sacked (q.v.), turned out to have made faster and looser with the facts than had the great Nobelist. In her CV (provided at London’s City University), the priggish, joke-abjuring Connie claimed to have written articles for “numerous outlets” including the Sunday Times and the Daily Mail and that she “presents and produces a range of programmes for BBC Radio 4”; but the ST could find no such articles in a database search covering the past two decades, and no broadcast programmes in her name since 2007.


PAEDOHYSTERIA POOH-POOHED

 The best-selling children’s authoress, Glasgow-based Julia Donaldson (who wrote The Gruffalo) said adults had become “totally neurotic” about paedophiles to the detriment of offspring’s freedom and ability to explore (Sunday Times, 28 vi).


EDUCATION REALISM CELEBRATED

 The death of education guru Sir Chris Woodhead at 68 of motoneurone disease was nicely lamented by the papers – for he had championed schools wanting to be free of socialist control from local authorities and spoken in favour of bringing back the grammar schools (Sunday Times, 28 vi).

{However, he never seemed to have read TgF – which concluded with more practical suggestions for introducing streaming and differentiation by intelligence using teacher-guided parental choice [the system set up for Germany by Britain in the days of Sir Cyril Burt and continued to the present].}


GREAT BRITAIN DEFINED

 As Britons laboured to define their country’s nature and values, and thus some reason why – after 300 years of running itself (1688-1988) – Britain should be providing refuge and welfare for the world and having its people blown up and gunned down by ISlamofanatics (notably the 52 on 7 vii 2005 and 30 on 26 vi 2015), visual aids from London’s Hyde Park memorial to 7/7 handily summed up the modern British story (Daily Mail, 30 vi).



Yes, the Romanian gypsies who nightly camped (including toileting) by the 52 pillars said it all as Britain added Tunisia to its list of concerns with the Mueslis of the Med: a country which had energized, liberated and saved the world had lost its grip – its finest institutions (Monarchy, Parliament, Armed Forces, Civil Service, Police) having surrendered their powers so as to make room for PeeCee and kindred feckless idealism. Yes, once-Great Britain was Going Bust. But it had found its voice – a spineless whimper. {PM DD was due to pay his respects at the memorial 7 vii 2015.}


FREE SPEECH FOR MUESLIS, NOT NOBELIST  

A fine tirade against University College London was provided by top Mail columnist Bel Mooney (2 vii), who pointed to the wretched luni having given houseroom for ranting by murderous Mueslis to sex-segregated audiences. Bel’s former husband, star broadcaster Jonathan Dimbleby, had resigned his Fellowship at the peecee playground ooops college over its forcing the resignation of ‘sexist’ Sir Tim (4 vii).

    Sir Tim’s hysteria-inducing idea that female participation in traditionally male pursuits might not be an unmixed blessing was given further support as England’s Ladies’ Footie Team crashed out of a World Cup competition with an own goal scored in extra time.

And, from the great horse racing Oz state of Victoria, it was reported that a female jockey had fallen while doing track work at Caulfield Race Course and that she died before arriving at a hospital. She was the second jockess to die in a racing accident in a month; and the fourth in 2015; and the ninth in 2014-5. How many male jockeys died in that time? None.


MISGUIDED MULTICULTURALISM

 Britain’s laxity in not banning the burqa was exemplarily exposed as crooks in an east London gang were convicted of a string of heists over a six-year period which had netted millions of pounds in designer watches, shoes and handbags from such high-end retailers as Prada, Selfridges and Jimmy Choo. The gang’s standard equipment for its smash-and-grab raids had included burqas along with motor bikes, sledgehammers and axes (Guardian, 4 vii; photos by Metropolitan Police).



Though did model and beautician Hollie Dowding (for it is she) really need to cover up?... Especially as Hollie readily confessed to providing ‘handling’ services (D.Telegraph, 4 vii)....




ANTI-ELITIST HILARITY

 In the topsy-turvy world of modern Britain – where the Queen had no yacht, Prince William needed to fly second-class, most medicine was lavished on those about to die, girls were encouraged to take up rugby and boxing, Oxbridge applicants to the Civil Service were discriminated against, and Scottish universities were told by their Holyrood masters to admit preferentially applicants having poor levels of educational attainment, teachers in England were found (in research by London Metropolitan University) to stigmatize their charges openly (attaching stickers to submitted work) as ‘disadvantaged’ so as to elicit a ‘pupil premium’ [higher grades] from examiners (D.Telegraph, 4 vii).

RACE REALISM LIVES  

Despite years of lib-left campaigning to enforce peecee religiosity and Kick Racism Out of Football, a Daily Mail reporter – himself a Black from the Caribbean – got the following snaps (and others like them) (19 vi).

At first glance, they look like any bunch of young lads sitting down to a meal. In this case, they happen to be the England Under-20s football squad. Look more closely, though, and you will see a startling fact: one table is entirely inhabited by black players, the other by white.



The same pattern can be seen in other pictures taken at the squad’s training base during a tournament in France [in May].

Exercising in the swimming pool, six white players line up alongside each other, while the black youngsters gather together at the other end of the pool. And on a line of training bikes, it is the same story. Black and white separated by colour.





TOP LUNIS GET RELIGION UNCLUBBED

 In the same week when Oxford received its final instalment of posthumous punishment from Lady Thatcher, as the last of her personal effects (books, handbag etc.) went to Churchill College, Cambridge (in revenge for Oxford hating her and not having given her an honorary degree), students of Magdalen College, Cambridge, took their turn at peecee mania by demanding the cessation of jelly wrestling by bikinied undergraduettes (q.v.) – a demand to which the sorry college’s Provost Rowan Williams, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, readily acceded since he too judged such drinking club practices as ‘sexist’ (Sunday Mail, 21 vi).

Killjoy student despots at both Oxford and Cambridge also launched a campaign called No Exclusive And Sexist Societies. The petition called for the for an end to clubs such as the historic Pitt Club, which had counted Edward VII and George V as members, and Oxford's Bullingdon Club, whose alumni of 2015 included Prime Minister David Cameron and Chancellor George Osborne.


RACE-REALIST MONKS vs MUESLIS

 With cavalier disregard for the thirty-year pretentiousness of Western leftists, postmodernists, social anthropologists etc to the effect that ‘races’ do not exist, an influential group of Buddhist monks announced it would defend Myanmar/Burma’s “race and religion” against Rohingya (q.v.)

Muslims who had invaded from neighbouring basket-case Bangladesh/Bengal. Meeting in Rangoon, some 1,300 monks of Ma Ba Tha [Organization for the Protection of Race and Religion] said they would encourage Burma’s electorate and military government to ban the wearing of headscarves in schools – they had previously had success in making it a crime for a woman to bear more than one baby in three years, a eugenic measure targeting chiefly the Rohingyas (Guardian, 23 vi).


RACISM ROCKS ON

Guardianistas were shocked to be told that the Spanish clothing retailer Zara was “implementing aggressively racist policies in its New York City stores” (24 vi). In a survey of 251 employees – roughly one-sixth of Zara’s New York workforce – Black employees in particular reported mistreatment from management, and many workers said they were ordered to racially profile customers.

In the survey, conducted by a pro-worker advocacy group, Center for Popular Democracy, employees recalled being instructed to flag certain shoppers as “special orders” over their radio headsets – a code signalling that the customer was a likely shoplifter and should be followed and watched.

According to survey respondents, signs that a customer might qualify as a special order included being African American, being a Black and “dressing a certain way” (cleavage-showing trousers, hoodies).

    Even worse, a peecee sleuth went rummaging in the Australian constitution (Guardian, 24 vi) and found it expressly permitted ‘racist’ legislation to keep “Asiatic and African aliens” from getting their hands on Oz gold (a real anxiety in the 1890s when the Australian constitution had last been reformulated).

Particularly, the constitution stated it enabled “the Parliament to deal with the people of any alien race after they have entered the Commonwealth; to localise them within defined areas, to restrict their migration, to confine them to certain occupations, or to give them special protection and secure their return after a certain period to the country whence they came.”


CARRY ON CRUCIFYING

 Black Friday, when scores of Poms, Krauts, Frogs and Shitites were gunned, bombed or decapitated in Tunisia, France and Kuwait, came and went with the usual junkets for EU politicos (whom jihadists strangely spared from their depradations – perhaps because of incompetence, or perhaps because they wanted continued protection from Western ‘leaders’).

Not a single mosque was closed, let alone burned down; not a single burqa or other hoodie was banned; no suggestion was made of a person’s support for jiheading cancelling UK citizenship; no sanctions were sought against Solunni countries (like Saudi and Qatar) whose mega-rich citizens funded Islamic terror; and not a single Christian minister was told his/her continued pay and emoluments would depend on avoiding sneering at the Crusades.

Instead, under the POTUShip of Black/Muesli Obarmy, yag ‘marriage’ and taxbreaks were forced  (by a 5-4 Supreme Court vote) on every state of the USA to parade before Russia’s President Putin the sheer unlikelihood of the West’s lunchers [sea bass a favourite with Euroscoffers in Brussels] sitting down with him to discuss the problems of the Ukraine, Syria, the Horn of Africa and Chechnya (where IS/ISIS/ISIL/Daesh had earlier in the week declared war on Russia -- in token of which 400 fanatic Chechen Solunnis had already got themselves to Syria/Iraq to help with rape, pillage, beheadings and the blowing up of Mesopotamian ruins).

No: the peecee goons of politics, the polytechnics and MSM were not to be distracted by A/A mayhem from their chosen task of bringing more slave labourers and welfare backers to the West to replace natives who drew disconcerting strength from their families or their own two feet.

    Still, the latest ISlamic atrocity at least drew support for Oz Queensman PM Tony Abbott from noted British historian Michael Burleigh who, writing in the Mail (27 vi), said the West would have to hire Algeria or Morocco as dumping grounds ooops safe havens for boat people whose invading millions might well contain substantial contributions of IS jiheaders.

Perhaps the West would re-learn from Australia how to resume the White man’s burden – though the über-diners of Brussels seemed set to be slow learners as they squabbled about the Muesli invasion throughout three courses, leaving PM Daft Dave only five minutes to present British demands for EU reform (to limit international welfarist free-loading) while the cheese was served.

MIGRANTS REJECTED  

Having easily won re-election as Governor of the northern Italian region of Veneto, Luca Zaia, a star of the surging anti-immigrant Northern League party, wasted little time showing voters that he had heard and understood their demands. Claiming that the sight of African migrants would have a “devastating effect” on the tourism industry, Zaia called for local officials across his region to begin clearing all reception centres and other housing occupied by migrants near tourist areas (Observer, 14 vi).

His decision reflected the dismay that had been expressed to him in “every way and in every place,” Zaia claimed, adding that all further placements should be halted. This was the latest salvo in an escalating standoff between Zaia – together with other rightwing governors in Liguria and Lombardy – and the government in Rome, where argument had broken out over a plan by the centrist Prime Minister, Matteo Renzi, to distribute tens of thousands of African migrants and refugees across Italy.


Eritreans wait for food at Milan’s central railway station


EMPIRE FOR ERITREA

 As Eritreans continued to make up 25% of aspirimmigrants crossing (when not dying in) the Med as they fled the brutal dictatorship of President Isaias Afwerki (a Muslim with Marxist episodes who made his money from gun-running to fellow Mueslis at odds with Christians and animists in Somalia and South Sudan), the UK’s lib-left Observer cried out for Western intervention (14 vi):

“The World Bank and IMF should take a fresh look at how best to encourage good governance, job creation and improved living standards for emerging generations of young workers.”

Offering the conclusion that taking Eritrea in hand was the most likely way of persuading Eritreans “to stay at home”, the Observer thus showed the English Labour Party the way to go as it struggled after its Election disaster to find an appeal to voters that was at once new, humane and practical.”

(Of course, there would be no point re-organizing Eritrea et al. if these countries had their brighter young tempted away by copious Western welfare, medical, educational and housing benefits showered on all who so much as got their feet on to tarmac.)


DINNERS FOR EUROBABBLERS  

As France, Switzerland, Hungary and Austria took steps towards closing their borders against A/A’s streaming into them from Italy (in France’s case sending 200 heavily padded gendarmes to Ventimiglia, on the Riveria, to force 6K A/A’s back into Italy and seal the border against them), the Italian prime minister, Matteo Renzi, said that, if no “equitable deal” were struck to spread the wretched of the earth across the whole of western Europe, Rome would start issuing migrants with temporary visas allowing them to travel elsewhere in Europe, stop receiving the hundreds of boats arriving from Libya and refuse docking for foreign ships rescuing those stranded at sea (Guardian, 16 vi).

But, meeting in Luxembourg, EU home secretaries could only bring themselves to plan jolly celebrations of the ‘borderless Europe’ thought to have been begun by the Schengen agreement (which Britain, Éire and Denmark had managed to avoid agreeing). It was thought that countries like Poland and Romania might take a few more dinners ooops migrants if the EU pressed ahead with its equally daft policy of irritating Russia over the Ukraine.

    Ukip’s Nigel Farage warned that the hordes of aspirimmigrants crossing the Med could soon be “of biblical proportions” – in the millions; and that Isis would insert its fanatics among the boat people. Even Guardian correspondents were 50% in favour of halting the migration (17 vi).

    The Pope suggested that those opposed to the A/A invasion should “seek forgiveness”; but his comments were rejected by the leader of Italy’s anti-immigration Northern League, Matteo Salvini, who retorted on Italian radio by asking, 'How many refugees are there in the Vatican?'

    Hungary's foreign minister announced plans to close his country’s border with Serbia to stem the flow of illegal migrants. The Hungarians would build a four-metre high, 110-mile long fence along the border in response to the growing number of migrants (Daily Mail, 17 vi). Hungary had the highest inflow of migrants per caput in Europe, taking in 55K in the first half of 2015 – representing a 60-fold increase in immigration in three years (Guardian, 18 vi).

    In Australia, it was revealed that the policy of paying boat people to stay away from Oz had been introduced by the previous Labor government. {This would be helpful news for British Labourites as they searched for new policies – with the aim, if they were wise, of winning back nationalistic, anti-Muslim votes that had gone to Ukip.}


SEX REALISM RE-ASSERTED  

Support for Britain’s spurned* Nobelist Sir Tim Hunt (who, called by South Korean female hostesses to provide post-lunch entertainment about ‘Women in Science,’ had lightheartedly mentioned the problems of love affairs in labs and the female propensity to tears, and thus apparently enraged feminasties – see above) came from Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, in his weekly Telegraph column (15 vi).

Very properly, Boris consulted the work of the world’s leading expert on crying (Professor Ad Vingerhoets of Tilburg University) for empirical demonstration that women cry five times as often and twice as copiously as men.

The politician in Boris could not resist a diplomatic admission that such submissive protection-seeking might reflect ‘social’ factors; but Boris was bold enough to say that Sir Tim “should be reinstated forthwith to his academic positions.”

In this he was joined by the Mail’s Tom Utley who deplored the cowardice of many academics under the “tyranny” of PeeCee (18 vi), by eight Nobelists and even by some 50% of Guardian correspondents; and, on the BBC’s ‘Question Time,’ eminent libertarian Conservative David Davies MP said it was actually the bosses of UCL who should be sacked for ‘bringing the university into disrepute.’

Whether or not because of the Hunt scandal, veteran American stand-up Jackie Mason, 84, chose the moment to join his fellow comic Jerry Seinfeld in noting and deploring the C21 allowance of free speech only to increasingly tyrannous Blacks and gays who could call straight Wasps anything they liked (Chortle Comedy News, 20 vi).

Evolutionist Richard Dawkins said, "Along with many others, I didn't like Sir Tim Hunt's joke, but 'disproportionate' would be a huge underestimate of the baying witch-hunt that it unleashed among our academic thought police....”

*Even British scientists’ weekly, Nature (18 vi), paraded the 20-year gutlessness of British academoids in the face of PeeCee: the magazine whined about Sir Tim’s “dismaying” remarks “belittling women” and urged that women be included in future in laboratories’ expeditions to the pub.


TRUMP JUMPS IN

Galvanizing American Republicans’ search for a candidate to win the White House in 2016, billionaire Donald Trump, 69 and father of five and on his third marriage, put his name forward just a day after Jeb Bush had done likewise (New York Times, 16 vi).

DT said he would stay the course – unlike in previous Republican selection campaigns when he had achieved only 5% support. DT flirted with a fine array of conservative/realist positions, having maintained his Presbyterean faith, having said Blacks were born idle, having denounced unwed motherhood, having spurned ‘climate change’ hysteria, having opposed abortion and third-world immigration (wanting a new Great Wall of China against Mexican invaders – whom he called “criminals,” drug peddlers and “rapists”) and having been a pal of flaky rightist Sarah Palin; but he was liberal about trade, believing ‘May the best man win’ (usually himself, except when Muslims were allowed to cheat on oil deals by an Obama-enfeebled USA).

His aim to ‘Make America great again’ might be unexceptionable; but he expressed it with enthusiasm, and his stress on the importance of being “smart,” “bright,” and “talented,” as opposed to being “stupid” was refreshing even if terms like ‘IQ’ and ‘the g factor’ never cropped up. His eldest daughter Ivanka



characterized him as ‘the opposite of political correctness’; and he had even been brave enough to face down comedian Ali G’s faux-naἵve TV interviewing which elicited peecee politeness from most celebrities (the only other notable exception being leftist Tony Benn).

A showman of clear, strong and nicely detailed views, The Donald would surely prove more watchable than most other Presidential hopefuls put together; and thus whittle down the 50% of US voters who claimed to dislike him.


INTELLIGENCE AGAINST INVASION

 Taking a couple of hours off from a jaunt to Milan’s ‘Expo’ exhibition, UK PM Daft Dave lunched with his Italian counterpart Matteo Renzi and promised help from British intelligence services (MI5, 6, 7, 8 etc.) to examine, document and discuss the hordes of A/A’s with which Italy was being inundated. Over a meal of risotto alla Milanese and roast veal, washed down with Soave and Bardolino wines, Cameron appeared to have been given a fairly sympathetic hearing for his case that the EU needed changes.

 Both leaders agreed the migrant problem originated outwith Italy {perhaps in Britain with its post-Thatcher idealism and demand for slave labour?...}; and that it would take months if not years of lunches ooops committee work to solve.


LEFTISM DENTED  

At a Q&A in Edinburgh’s Cineworld for his film ‘The Stanford Prison Experiment,’ Californian director Kyle Alvarez surprisingly agreed {with me} that the Stanford University scenario (of a mock prison arrangement where some of the student ‘guards’ and ‘prisoners’ threw themselves over-enthusiastically into their parts – earning a handsome $15 per day in 1970 for their work) was comparable to that of William Golding’s ‘Lord of the Flies.’

Surprising because Dr Philip Zimbardo’s ‘experiment’ was usually interpreted by leftish social scientists as illustrating the evils of authority and of obedience to it. But Alvarez insisted ‘The Lord of the Flies’ (where schoolboys run amok after their teachers die in the plane crash that had landed them on a desert island) had indeed been much on his mind – as well he might, for the Stanford study (or simulation, as another Stanford professor called it) essentially involved a lack of authority as Zimbardo allowed his ‘guards’ to swear and shout at ‘prisoners’ and to intimidate and humiliate them (they were made to wear dresses when not stripped), ultimately culminating in the ‘guards’ mock-sodomizing the ‘prisoners’ (at which point the ‘experiment’ was stopped as it dawned on Zimbardo that he had gone too far – if not for leftists -- in his ludicrous caricature of authority as capricious and brutal).

ADIOS, AMERICA!  

Divine* US journaliste Ann Coulter provided an vigorous account at a signing in Washington of her most recent book which accused American authorities of hiding the vast extent of the problems arising from third-world immigration (AmRen, 18 vi).



A bon mot from Ann: “Unless you’re being called a racist by the New York Times, you’re losing.”

Another: "Roe v. Wade can be overturned. Obamacare can be repealed. Amnesty [for illegal immigrants] is forever."

*An AmRen correspondent (18 vi): There is no one remotely like Ann, part Mort Sahl, part Joan of Arc, the mind of a Harvard Law Professor trapped in the body of a Victoria's Secret model. The proper response is adoration.

The one discrepancy that intrigues me is that she is an ardent Christian (practically demanding martyrdom) and creationist (how ironic that the apogee of evolution denies evolution).. Race realism is based on evolutionary biology. That suggests a fault line, but her outreach to the dissident right has been impressively enthusiastic.

As for money-making, she would make much, much more if she tapered her views ever so slightly. With her looks and her wit, she is prime time material. She could drive a hard Faustian bargain but she'd rather have lunch with Vdare bloggers or even our Jared.

BLACKOUT BRITAIN  

All electrical power was cut in south Edinburgh for the fourth time in four years. The slide of Scotland’s capital towards third-world status coincided with reports that the products of modern Britain’s ‘schools’ and fatherless ‘families’ did not know how to put up a shelf, change a light bulb or mow the grass, not to mention having fallen out of the world’s top 25 countries in level of educational attainment.

Edinburgh’s power cuts varied between one and four hours in length and were provided by faceless ‘suppliers’ who could never be contacted and by the SNP-led city council best known for its useless trams.

    At least there wasn’t a war on; though the West’s decline into IQ-disrespecting idealism and fatuous bureaucracy would pretty soon change that as thousands of A/A’s were ferried in daily to enjoy what was left of civilization before they closed it down completely:


CARRY ON LABOURING

 As the post-Election rump of Britain’s socialists embarked on an already-acrimonious four-cornered leadership contest between unheard-of, unreconstructed millilitrelites, they gave themselves a holiday ooops conference at trade union expense in Dublin (BBCR4 9 vi, 08:40) under the pretext of discussing skules – which the all-powerful Blob of leftist-ridden educationists had led to worldwide ignominy, their slight concern for standards producing only pathetic feats of rote learning and their febrile quest for classroom contentment yielding only indiscipline which increasingly required police to sort out.

 So what ways forward were suggested? Would children be taught the history of their country, its empire, its Nobel Prizes and its comedic culture? Would they be taught to the maximum of the individual abilities? Would they have to write decent grammatical English? Would they learn any other languages at all?

No, of course not! Rather than respond to a British electorate that had dramatically punished C21 Labour for its lack of aspiration, elitism, eugenicism, patriotism, racism and realism, the conferencers just played the tapes of the past -- demanding smaller class sizes (known by 1970 to have no effect), more teacher training (in half-*rsed sociology), and school heads to be powerless (with their teachers’ annually incremented pay fixed by the unions).


EAST-ASIANS FREED TO THRIVE

Upsetting leftist illusions of Whites keeping down ‘minorities’ and needing to be made to supply ‘affirmative action’, California’s Asians zoomed to score in universities as quotas were withdrawn. California was the first US state to ban the use of race and ethnicity in public university admissions. However, once affirmative action was banned (by Proposition 209), Asian American students quickly dominated entrants. At UC Berkeley, for example, 46% of those admitted into the 2012 freshman class were Asian; 30% were White.

{Taken from ‘Facts about Race and Racism’ – a mainly leftist/environmentatlist/postmodernist document, but containing the occasional admission.}

{Harvard was also to face a legal challenge to its pursuit of racial diversity – from one Edward Blum who had given due notice that he would seek to end the university’s unfairness to White applicants.}


SELF-STARTING PEECEE

  After bespectacled Oxbridge-produced Nobelist, Sir Tim Hunt FRS, 72, a biochemist, infuriated a hefty Black female, a teacher of journalism, at a ‘Women in Science’ lunch sponsored by Korean female scientists by jocularly professing routine “chauvinism” and quipping that mixed-sex laboratories had their occasional problems with love affairs and tears, he was moved to apologize and resign his honorary professorship (Guardian, 11 vi) even though his gutless university, UCL, had declined to confront him or his post-prandial remarks (instead muttering to his wife in a phone call that he would “have to resign”).

{Yes, PeeCee had become a religion in which offenders, however eminent, were in haste to admit guilt and submit without argument to casually suggested self-punishment. Sir Tim – married to an eminent scientist (herself an immunology professor at UCL) – would have to settle for the consolation that he was not alone in being called to genuflect to still-prevailing feminazism, anti-racism and paedohysteria if he wanted to enjoy quiet lunches and chats with colleagues.

As he resigned from everything he could think of, he said “I have become toxic and so am finished” (Observer, 14 vi). At least his science would anyhow win through  -- just as the work of imprisoned paedophile Nobelist Daniel Gajdusek continued posthumously to inspire successful work in Papua New Guinea on brain rot by Ghanaian geneticist Emmanuel Asante (D.Telegraph, 11 vi) even as Esther Rantzen was being made a Dame for her services to the terrorists of the child abuse industry.}


WHITE MAN’S BURDEN

 As a thousand A/As floated into Europe daily (or were brought in without charge by HMS Bulwark) and another half-million waited in the ungoverned demakrazic Libya (of Western fabrication) for their chance to cross the Med to EU paradise, Australia’s top Queensman and Prime Minister, Tony Abbott declined to deny that he would bribe people-smugglers to steer away from Oz and had already been paying £30K for each boat intercepted and steered back to Indonesia (Guardian, 12 vi).

(The Workers’ own Paradise had long paid for the prison islands of Manus and Nauru as places where it could dump unwanted aspiring migrants; but apparently the islands were full up or getting too much press attention.)

Interesting questions arose for case-seeking lawyers as to whether Australia bribes would put the country in violation of its international agreements to accept refugees; and for economists as to whether the bribes would only increase refugee traffic. But Abbott said he would “do what it takes” to stop the boats so long as it was “decent”; and he could take credit for recognizing that Whites were going to have to re-imperialize the world and pay local governments to police it (if perhaps getting in return the cheap military labour that Russia enjoyed from the –stans). And an Indonesian boat captain insisted he had only been given his £30k on condition he engage in no more people smuggling.


MULTICULTI MAYHEM  

The anxieties felt by peecee-indoctrinated and –terrorized Whites about crossing the colour bar and making the slightest criticism of any Black turned out to be in short supply among Pakistani youth in multiculti Bradford. There, when a Black supply teacher (liked by his neighbours in nearby Leeds) asked a 14-yr Asian pupil to hand in at the start of a lesson the mobile phone with which the boy was constantly playing, a knife was drawn, the teacher stabbed and hospitalized, and the boy charged by police with attempted murder (D.Telegraph, 12 vi).


HOMES FIT FOR ‘TRAVELLERS’

As the UK’s new ‘Conservative’ Government took over, it turned out that England’s local authorities had been advised to make annual increases of 3% in their housing stock so as to accommodate gypsies/travellers – no matter that these groups could reasonably have been expected to be riding their horses/lorries along country lanes with their caravans in tow until their thieving ooops handimanship produced enough cash for a deposit on a house.

Nor was the idiocy mandated by the EU: no, it came simply from the pre-crash days of the Blair/Brown Labour Government. Thankfully the Conservatives would modify the advice – but only by feebly making 3% a ‘guideline’, and still persisting with the hilarious stipulation that council-home-seeking g/t’s should “prove” themselves to be ‘travellers’ (D.Telegraph, 13 vi).

TESTOSTERONE  FOR TREACHERY

As Switzerland’s Joseph Blatter awaited questioning (along with seventeen of his arrested staff) from the FBI about corruption under his 20-yr presidency at FIFA, and had to endure being called a “megalomaniac” who had no friends because he “eliminated” all competition (Sunday Times, 31 v), a study at his own alma mater, the University of Lausanne, found that students who ratted on agreements which they had made as to how largesse should be partialled out among others were those who had the higher levels of testosterone (Sunday Mail, 31 v, ‘[The] science behind corruption and power’).

This confirmation of a link between cheating and male sex hormone fitted Bletther well, for across his 79-yr life of three marriages he had been notably popular, and indeed frisky with the ladies -- not least those much younger than himself, like the Russian supermodel girlfriend of star footieman Cristiano Ronaldo (said Spain’s respected El Mundo).




PEECEE TO MADHOUSE  

Ever more ludicrous in its proposals for tyranny, PeeCee began to demand not just that no-one (especially in the ‘safe place’ shrines of luniversities) should say (let alone write) anything racist, sexist, homophobic etc, but that no words or conduct should even trigger unhappy racist etc thoughts or memories in students (aka helpless victims of patriarchy). Columnist Amanda Foreman explained (Sunday Times, 31 v, ‘Here’s a trigger warning for all campus censors: I shall fight you’):

"....Suddenly, thousands of (mostly female) students [in America] have become so sensitive to the written word that any unexpected exposure could trigger post-traumatic stress disorder.
   
The only remedy, so they claim, is to have all course syllabuses either scrubbed of uncomfortable content or else clearly marked and segregated by the appropriate trigger warnings. A professor may have the option of not presenting the objectionable material, allowing students to absent themselves from that part of the course, or flagging the work for its depictions of rape, misogyny, racism, homophobia and violence.

    Only last month, the student-led Multicultural Affairs Advisory Board at Columbia University, New York, warned against the harm caused by such works as Ovid’s Metamorphoses because “like so many texts in the western canon, it contains triggering and offensive material that marginalises student identities in the classroom.”

Yes, not content with closing down the dreaded –isms and with maximally covering from view the female body (preparing for life under Islam....), peecee hysterics were moving on to spare students from being even faintly reminded of naughtiness – let alone from actually understanding the naughty realities of life against which they frothed in vain.


SELECTION BY BRAWN  

As Britons pondered why Germany’s Milkmaid Merkel was so keen for Europe to accept  A/A ‘refugee’ migrants, the only sensible answer seemed to be that – what with her country’s non-replacement birthrate (the lowest in the world) -- she wanted to get the brightest, healthiest and most motivated A/As before the people and even politicos of a Europe cowed by muticulti neoMarxism managed to raise the drawbridge; but, if this was the policy, it was certainly complemented if not overshadowed by selection for brawn, bravado and criminality.

At Calais, where A/As daily terrified British drivers with their reckless efforts to get into cars and lorries in hope of reaching Britopia, there were nightly fights, sometimes lasting hours, between gangs of Blacks, pitting e.g. Sudanese young males against Eritreans and resulting in dozens requiring medical attention and hospitalization (D.Mail, 1 vi).

{Yes – and in five years time such fighting would become commonplace in Britain at schools, surgeries and benefit offices as the successful immigrants continued to exercise their selected talents.}

    Only the brawn of an English 70-yr-old stopped six illegals in their tracks: seeing six stowaways dismounting from the back of a lorry in Bedfordshire, the pensioner managed to detain one of them and give two others a hard time so, by the time the group broke up, police had reached the scene. All six A/As were arrested (D.Telegraph, 1 vi).


MULTICULTURALISM MUZZLED

 Although the West professed multiculturalism – and had even messed up the Middle East by assuming that Jews, Shi’ites and Sunnis could live together (with only Christians driven out) – its Kurdish ally (against the sadists of Solunni Isis/Isil/Daesh) did not care for this batty pseudo-internationalism and turned out to have been razing and pillaging scores of Isis villages in northern Syria.

The Times (1 vi, p1) said this appeared to be “a campaign of ethnic cleansing against Sunni Arabs” and added “More than 10,000 people are thought to have fled in the past six months, as neighbours who had lived together for decades turned against each other.”

{The ethnicity of the Kurds themselves involved an eclectic mix of Sunni, Shi’ite and Sufi traditions – including a 14th-century reformulation of Mohammedanism -- and acceptance of many Western practices such as egalitarianism and mixed-sex dancing. Kurds saw themselves as most similar to their relatively westernized Iranian neighbours.}


ENVIRONMENTALISTS AT A LOSS

 As Britain mourned the death at 55 from an alcohol-induced haemorrhage of top redhead politico Charles Kennedy who had led the Liberal Democrats relatively successfully for ten years, the environmentalism of MSM laboured to provide any convincing explanation.

CK had been an early success at Glasgow University (where he was later voted Rector for six years) and become the UK’s youngest MP at 23; he had a regular slot as a funny man (along with the Conservatives’ Julian Critchley and Labour’s Austin Mitchell) on BBCR4; he was a considerable and much-admired orator; he was hugely popular, not least for his kind attentiveness to others; and, after his wife (and mother of his son) died in 2007, he soon found love and consolation and valued help in the arms of another.

So what could have gone wrong? Of course, unmentioned by MSM (and all but one of the scores who phoned in to ‘Any Answers’, 6 vi, 14:10) was the substantial .4 heritability of alcoholism (e.g. Ask.com, 2015) – a figure that was still higher for men, for early problem drinkers, for heavy drinkers, for drinkers who succumbed to sedation, and doubtless for Celts.


“MULTICULTI ENDING”

Hungary’s Prime Minister – harried by far-right groups – took a new step towards realism (Reuters, 3 vi). The era of multiculturalism is over and Hungary should be spared its effects at all costs, he said. In comments that appeared to toughen his already uncompromising stance on immigration, Viktor Orban was quoted as telling a Hungarian newspaper there should be no “mass-scale” mixing of different creeds.

“Multiculturalism means the coexistence of Islam, Asian religions and Christianity. We will do everything to spare Hungary from that,” he said in an interview with the daily newspaper Napi Gazdasag. “We welcome non-Christian investors, artists, scientists; but we don’t want to mix on a mass scale.”

    Orban, whose governing Fidesz party was losing ground in the polls to the far-right, anti-immigrant Jobbik party, had clashed with European counterparts over his isolationist views. At the European Parliament in mid-May, he criticized as “bordering on insanity” EU proposals for migrant quotas drafted in response to thousands of deaths among asylum-seekers trying to reach Europe across the Mediterranean in increasing numbers.

    {And would England’s Labour Party draw inspiration from the ‘nationalism’ of Hungary – adding to the message sent it at the UK’s General Election by the Celts of north-west Scotland? Would Labour be able to rise from the ignominy of its defeat to shake off the pseudo-intellectual internationalism of PeeCee and defend the interests of workers and taxpayers against those of parasitical owners and idealists?

Sadly – except as just reward for its years of multicult illusion – Labour had lost its star Eurosceptic, Douglas Alexander, 45, booted out of Glasgow Paisley in the great SNP surge; and luminary half-realists Frank Field, Kate Hoey and Austin Mitchell were 65+. But ‘cometh the hour, cometh the man’ – perhaps in this case John Mann MP, 55 and with no doubt that bankers and career politicians were not the way to a ‘brilliant Britain’ of cohesive communities in which benefits would be paid only after five years of contributions.}


FUN! FUN! FUN!

Times might have seemed hard for Britain’s “armed” services, with no aircraft to fly from their anyhow uncompleted carrier and no strategy for helping Iran and Syria stop the rampaging Solunni Isisadists of Eyeraq; but at least there was enough cash for Eurokrautish din-dins in Bavaria from where the assembled junketers could cheer on HMS Bulwark as – together with ten other EU-mandated ships -- she went busily to and fro between Libya and Italy bringing the culinary and prostitutional skills of the Muslim/Negro world to serve the suicidally short-sighted slavemasters of the West until the invaders had mastered the ways of iPod/iPad/yourFace/myTube and the benefit system and were thus ready to take over.

Half a million A/As were queuing up in Libya for the ride (for which they would sink their own boats as soon as Bulwark spotted them). An Observer correspondent explained (7 vi):

"Many Guardian readers would love to have [a further] half a million economic refugees planning on reaching our shores from Indonesia. Just imagine the thrill they'd get helping them get their government housing, filling in their welfare forms, finding new government services they can apply for. The satisfaction of their white man's burden complex would leave them in euphoria for years."

BLACKS AS ‘PREJUDICED’ AS WHITES

 Blacks and Latinos are just as likely to believe in the greater criminality of Blacks, and to take suitable evasive action. This was the conclusion of research at South Florida University in response to the question ‘Why do White cops shoot so many Blacks?’ (BBC World Service, 24 v, 14:15). Participants repeatedly had flashed before them images of a man, sometimes White and sometimes Black, apparently carrying either a gun or a box of similar size. They were instructed to press as quickly as possible one of two buttons, one marked ‘SHOOT!’ and the other marked ‘DON’T SHOOT!’ It was found that subjects of all three racial groups were more likely to ‘shoot’ when the pictured man was Black – as if they were responding not with irrational, race-based prejudice, but simply in accordance with the reality well known to all Americans that Blacks were three times as likely as Whites to commit crimes.


MULTICULTI ENDING

 As the Iraqi Army – which had run away from Islamic State (IS etc.) at Ramadi -- was denounced by America’s Secretary of State for Defense as “lacking the will to fight”, it was pretty clear that the multicultural illusions of the West had been cruelly exposed. After twelve years of America and its allies sacrificing blood and treasure to topple Saddam Insane, settle the Middle East and even to bring on an Arab Spring (including demakrazy and wymmin’s rights), the West found it had not even been able to provide Iraq with a functioning army and would have to take a back seat as Solunni vs Shitite hostility came centre stage, with only Israel and Russia likely to provide a semblance of order.

{However, Iraqi authorities insisted they would take back Ramadi “within three days”....}


BUDDHISTS FOR BIRTH CONTROL – BY MUSLIMS

 As Burma’s Muslim Rohingyas (considered to be Bangladeshis by the authorities in Burma/Myanmar) continued to try to sail to neighbouring countries for refuge from what they considered Buddhist persecution, the Burmese government passed legislation allowing it to set up “health zones” in which women would be encouraged, instructed and even forced to space their offspring so they had no more than one child in three years (Guardian, 25 v).

Whether compulsory sterilization or abortion would be involved was not stated; but protests were anyhow forthcoming from UN bodies and the USA, worried that ‘ethnic cleansing’ of the Rohingya would be practised.

{Certainly the Buddhists had something to worry about:  the Rohingya birth rate was markedly higher than that of Buddhists; some imams urged their Muslim women to breed as fast as possible, stopping only when they died; and Bangladeshis had themselves in forty years reduced the Buddhist (and Hindu) minority among them from 29% to 9%. A Buddhist community leader said the country was under threat from global Islam (Sunday Times, 24 v): “Britain has allowed Muslims to settle in London, and now you have people going to fight for Isis.”

Other legislation passed at the same time in Burma would impose restrictions on religious conversion and inter-religious marriage and prohibit extra-marital affairs, so it did appear that the authorities – afraid of Buddhists being overwhelmed -- sought substantial separation of the two ethnic groups.}

{Bangladeshi/Bengali proclivity to fraudulence was illustrated for Brits as London police began arresting hundreds of Bangladeshis who – though they had found refuge in Italy – had got in the habit of flying into Britain for a day to rip off sometimes £9K in housing benefit from obliging officials (often themselves Pakistani Muslims).

All the fraudsters needed to do, apparently, was to get themselves a National Insurance number from a Job Centre and make up a false address – one such address had been used in a year by no less than 400 Banglas (D.Mail, 25 v).}


BOYS PREFER BRAINS (AND BUTTS) TO BUSTS AND PINS

 Men look for big brains rather than big boobs when hunting for a life partner, a Cambridge professor claimed at the 2015 Hay-on-Wye Book Festival. “Despite large breasts and long legs often being cited as the ultimate markers of female attractiveness, it seems that a high IQ could be the more reliable way for women to hook a long-term partner,” said the London Evening Standard (25 v).

Professor David Bainbridge, an evolutionary biologist at the University of Cambridge, claimed men who are keen to start a family are more likely to be drawn to an intelligent woman because they instinctively believe she will be a better mother to his children, the Daily Telegraph reported.

The prof said “surveys have shown time and again” that brains are thought more attractive by would-be fathers -- though he placed no stress on brainy women passing on high IQ by genetic inheritance to their children. Disdaining traditional belief in the desirability of bust size, Bainbridge maintained it was the symmetry of breast size that was preferred, and symmetry (an indicator of health) was apparently greater in big-breasted girls.

He also played down the attractiveness of ‘endless legs,’ though he did admit voluptuous thighs and a low waist-hip ratio as being valued – they presumably indicated fat storage and non-pregnancy.


POUNDS PAID FOR PEECEE POLICE PERSECUTION

 An evangelical street preacher was awarded £2,500 and legal costs after being confined in a cell by cops for eleven hours in response to a lesbian complaining of him being ‘homophobic’ (Daily Mail, 28 v). Fortunately for red-haired South African-born Rob Hughes, 38, he had taped a recording of his talk in Basildon, Essex. Once a solicitor persuaded police to listen, they agreed he had not actually mentioned homosexuality or said anything offensive but just criticized the ‘destruction of marriage’ by the government (as it had brought in yag ‘marriage’ in 2013).

So peecee tyranny was rebuffed – though Britain’s politicos, professors and paparazzi would themselves doubtless need more than £2,500 as compensation for a day of inconvenience, anxiety and ignominy; and a bill paid by the public was perhaps not the best way to impress police to look at evidence and to be as suspicious of PeeCee as of preachers.

One Mail correspondent wrote: “Back to the 15th century . . . . . what a petty tyranny this country is becoming! Pretty soon there'll be an unofficial "underground" to fight the Thought Police on the streets. Sign me up!”

{Heaven knows what hysterics the lesbos and the filth would have thrown if, after the Éirish referendum approving queer marriage, they had heard the highest-ranking Vatican official, Pietro Parolin, denounce the vote as “a defeat for humanity”!}


MULTICULT RACKET RUMBLED

The man who had made most money out of multiculturalism found himself and his senior officials on the receiving end of attention from America’s FBI. International footie organizer Slippery Swiss Joseph ‘Sepp’ Blatter had spent years giving FIFA membership and votes to African, Caribbean and other ‘developing’ countries that barely sported a soccer team (Guardian, 29 v + ‘FIFA is so corrupt....’).

Notoriously, with his A/A votes to keep him in place, he had for cash brought staging of the World Cup to such unlikely venues as South Africa [world rape capital], Qatar [temperature 100ᵒC in summer; no alcohol] and Moscow [tweaking Western noses in Uraine], allegedly in return for multi-million-dollar kickbacks. Now he was hauled before the court of world opinion as seven of his top minions were arrested in Switzerland in response to an FBI demand; and he himself dared not visit the USA for fear of being given a 100-yr prison sentence.

Faced with this disaster, Blether insisted that neither he nor his lieutenants could be held responsible for the vast and ongoing corruption at FIFA; and indeed that his continuance in office was necessary more than ever to correct the racketeering that had been exposed. He expected that his assemblage of non-soccer-playing money-grubbing multicults would re-elect him president of FIFA -- which they did rather than risk their income stream.


‘IQ’ RISE REMAINS MYSTERIOUS  

Rises in scores on intelligence tests through the 20th century [the ‘Flynn/Lynn Effect’ that became known around 1990 – though actually first noticed by Tuddenham in 1948] were confirmed in research led from Vienna (Wall Street Journal, 27 v). Gains across 1909–2013, based on 271 independent samples, totalling almost 4 million participants, from 31 countries, were around 3 IQ-type points per decade.

However, while the authors were happy to join the chorus of those chortling that such an effect could only indicate some importance for environmental factors and give hope that Black IQ might one day rise, the new data contained many peculiar features (as noticed by Rushton [1999] in previous studies).

The Vienna authors found their rise to be greater in adults, to be jerky over time and to tail off after 1970; and, for explanations, they felt obliged to resort to speculation about “life history speed” and “social multiplier effects.” Altogether, it looked wiser to posit increasing test sophistication – though not for adults during wartime, and requiring self-monitoring and self-control that Blacks recalcitrantly lacked (TgF, Chapter 4).


FREEDOM VENERATOR ELEVATED

 As Oxford University appointed its first vice-chancellorette, redheaded terrorism expert Louise Richardson, 57 and v-c at St Andrews University from 2008, it turned out that the lively and boyish mother of three had made a remarkable lifetime transition from an RC family and education in southern Éire and adolescent enthusiasm for the IRA, via Trinity College Dublin, UCLA, Harvard and Radcliffe to marrying a ‘Boston Brahmin’ GP who could trace his own ancestry back to the Mayflower and who had no problem with her career move to Britain’s traditionally most Tory institutions so long as she re-appeared in the couple’s Cambridge (Massachusetts) home once a month.

Given that history of dramatic personal change, it was perhaps unsurprising that Professor Richardson was a firm defender of free speech who, as she dealt with ScotNastyonalist attempts during the 2014 referendum to silence her own and other academics’ support for the Union, was recorded drawing attention to St Andrews’ motto

Stamping on the attempted silencing of a faculty member in the referendum debate, she said, “whether or not my personal views are in accord with yours, I assure you that any external pressure to limit or suppress debate will stop at my door”. She pointed to an ancient inscription over a university gate that, she says, “is a useful and timeless reminder of the university’s commitment to free speech: ‘They have said and they will say. Let them be saying’.”

Equally unsurprising, LR had and was prepared to express a healthy belief in intelligence, telling the Irish Times (13 ix 2014) “....we should be investing in smart people to think about the future....” Her promotion to Oxford would be a loss to Scottish academia, where few were so robust, said the Telegraph’s Scotland editor, Alan Cochrane (30 v 2015).

LONG LIVE APARTHEID!  

While Western countries staggered under self-imposed humanitarian burdens, independent Black-run South Africa had no problem deporting 400 Mozambiquan immigrants in a single day; and the BBC’s World Service gave 25 minutes to explaining how inequality (both between the races and amongst Blacks themselves) had grown worse through 20 years of independence – with unskilled jobs lost, with Black children sitting on bricks in mud-made schools where teachers did not show up, etc. -- all because of lack of ‘inclusivity’, failure to ‘connect,’ and patronage/corruption (BBC World Service, 17 v, 14:05).


GENETIC INFLUENCES CONFIRMED

Medical, physical and psychological variations in humans typically show more influence of nature than of nurture (Danielle Posthuma et al., Nature Genetics, 18 v). A vast meta-analysis (by workers as far apart as Stockholm and Brisbane) of eighteen thousand traits measured in identical and fraternal twins found heritabilities clustering around .50, with h2 being higher for variables to do with cognition, activities and psychopathology than for those related to social values and interaction. (The g factor was not analysed separately. The highest heritabilities were for features of the eyes, ears, nose, throat and skin; the lowest concerned reproductive and endocrine functioning.)


RACE-REALIST PROF SLAMS PEECEE

 A Duke University professor was defiant after his university {famed for having race-asserting William McDougall FRS as its Professor of Psychology in the 1930s} condemned what it said were his “noxious” and “offensive” words in a letter published in The New York Times in which he compared African-Americans unfavorably to Asian-Americans (Fox News, 19 v). The school’s rebuke came after a student backlash against Political Science Professor Jerry Hough, 80, whose May 9 letter had sought to address racism and the Baltimore riots.

    Hough said African-Americans don’t try to integrate into society, while Asians “worked doubly hard” to overcome racism instead of blaming it. “Every Asian student has a very simple old American first name that symbolizes their desire for integration,” he wrote. “Virtually every black has a strange new name that symbolizes their lack of desire for integration. ....

In 1965 the Asians were discriminated against as least as badly as blacks. That was reflected in the word ‘colored’. The racism against what even Eleanor Roosevelt called the yellow races was at least as bad. So where are the editorials that say racism doomed the Asian-Americans? ....

The amount of Asian-white dating is enormous and so surely will be the intermarriage. Black-white dating [at Duke] is almost non-existent because of the ostracism by blacks of anyone who dates a white.”

    Duke students and faculty bleated about Hough, and Duke told The News & Observer of Raleigh that he was placed on leave and that 2016 would be his last year of teaching at the school. “The comments were noxious, offensive, and have no place in civil discourse,” said Duke spokesman Michael Schoenfeld. But Hough said political correctness was getting in the way of thoughtful and frank debate.


HUMANITARIANS ON THE HOOK  

Any hope that Europe’s politicians would be able to improve on their policy of letting in thousands of A/A wretches weekly from across the Mediterranean proved illusory. The EU’s plan was to have lots of dinners and consider discussing with UN apparatchiks whether to have more dinners that might possibly decide to allow such ships as HMS Bulwark to pause occasionally from helping the illegals into Europe and instead fly them home, catch a few people smugglers and even puncture their rubber boats. But three difficulties arose for the dining programme:

(1) How could either smugglers or boats be located along a two-thousand-mile coastline, some of which (especially Libya) either had no government or governments that wanted cash to keep the would-be migrants out of their territories?

(2) Rubber boats came in packs of a hundred and could be peeled off and inflated in a couple of minutes.

(3) Smugglers seldom went out into the Med with their cargoes – instead they selected Syrians (the more literate desperadoes) and gave them a two-day training course in managing a dinghy and in how to use GPS navigation (BBC World Service, 18 v, 14:20).

{Limiting EU welfare etc. to the amount a recipient and family had paid in national insurance and income tax would certainly be a lot cheaper than using HMS Bulwark but would not appeal to idealists....}


EMPIRE THE ANSWER!

 Pondering the A/A boat people and the refusal of Britain, France, Hungary, Poland and Spain to agree EU plans for them to accept quotas of the illegals, the Guardian decided it was time for the White man to take up his traditional burden and get things organized (20 v):

"No one expects a quick fix in the Middle East, but it is staggering that EU officials have been silent about the way sub-Saharan African countries – who are bleeding their youth to Europe – have let such a situation develop. The governance of these countries must be looked at. These are, after all, the places where criminal networks can flourish and profit, by scouting out candidates for the deadly sea crossings."

{Yes, better to abandon the leftist C20 antipathy to Western imperialism than close down Muesli mosques and Western welfarism!}


INEQUALITY INERADICABLE  

In an extraordinary mea culpa (in a talk at Glasgow University), Scotland’s education minister delivered what she called her “honest evaluation” that the SNP-run Executive had failed to close the “appalling” gap in academic attainment levels between the best and worst state schools after more than eight years of effort and enhanced spending (Daily Telegraph, 20 v, ‘Minister admits “painful truth” that Nationalists have failed to narrow the schools divide’).

Ms Angela Constance said teachers should no longer be allowed to use poverty as an excuse for poor results. {However, though denying “dogma or ideology,” she would next try another version of environmentalism by giving parents “a greater role” in bullying ooops helping their children to do better....}


LEFT WRONG, PEOPLE RIGHT

 New figures from the UK’s Office of National Statistics showed that immigration was continuing to rise – to .6M entrants in 2014 – despite fifteen years of leftist and Coalition flannel that it was being closely monitored and brought under control (Classic FM Radio, 21 v, 11:00).

The news came alongside dramatic advances by ISIL jihadists in Iraq (Ramadi) and Syria (the bijou 4K-yr-old ruins of Palmyra), A/A inundation of Europe by Mueslis from across the Med and the appearance at the Old Bailey of another eleven Srindopakeshi men charged with hundreds of sex offences against young White girls in Aylesbury (one of whom had been ‘groomed’ to sleep with no less than sixty ‘Asian’ men when she was just 13).

So it could provide Labour (in despair over its Election defeat, and needing a serious policy shift) with a conclusive rationale for a tough-minded right-wing move that would chime with voters and leave Conservatives and Liberals holding the bawling baby of PeeCee/Multiculturalism.

{In any such move, Labour could hang on to some idealism by offering, say, equal pay and free childminding for English-speaking women; and a robust defence of alcohol and pork against Mueslis and other dispiriting moaners would play well with White men.}


IMPROVING SCHEMES....

 As Home Secretary Theresa ‘Nasty Party’ May planned to rid TV of ‘extremist’ messages (preferring general censorship to arresting jihadists, closing their mosques and fining their families – such censorship proving objectionable to only one Cabinet member, Sajid David, the millionaire son of a Pakistani bus driver (Guardian, 22 v)) -- a Belfast court came up with a novel way of interfering with free speech: it sided with two yags who had wanted to celebrate their ‘wedding’ by having a bakery run by two homosceptic Christians inscribe in icing “SUPPORT GAY MARRIAGE” on a cake prepared for the occasion.

 The next step? To have a Conservative baker compelled to prepare a cake saying “VOTE LABOUR”? Or a Jewish baker to provide a cake for Hitler’s birthday and bearing a swastika? But first: Ask a Muslim baker for the same service that the Christians had declined to supply!

{Not content with suppressing free speech, the UK had let its homophiles actually force words into others’ mouths.}


ETHNIES ESCALATE  

As the bloodthirsty Sunni jihadists of ISIL/ISIS/IS/Daesh advanced to within seventy miles of Baghdad, thus obliging the Iraqi government to rely on Shi-ite fighters, and (after a five-day break to take in Western aid) shelling resumed between the Solunnis and Shitites of Yemen (killing 13), a Solunni bomb killed 21 Shitites (and injured dozens more) at a mosque in Saudi Arabia (BBC World Service, 23 v, 02:00).

Thus was Islam’s civil war forced increasingly into the consciousness of the multiculti West which preferred not to acknowledge the simple reality of deep-seated racial/ethnic differences and was itself divided as to whether to support or to topple Syria’s Shitite-sympathetic President Basher Assad (who still clung to the urbanized west of his country – where the Russians would presumably wish to maintain their naval base in Latakia).


BRITISH YOUNG THE DUMBEST

  Britain’s 20-yr-olds were found by OECD to have literacy and numeracy levels no higher than 60-yr-olds – a result contrasting markedly with other advanced countries, where the young scored around 20% better than the old (50% better in South Korea).

A Daily Mail correspondent observed (23 v): “What people should realise is that teachers and the teaching unions are the footsoldiers of the Labour Party who support the dumbing down of education to ensure that the weakest still score a high mark.”

Britain’s bottom-placed result of 0% came despite vastly more having been spent on the young compared to seniors. Years of hostility to streaming – and in particular to grammar schools – had apparently had their predictable effect*; as might Britain’s 30-yr campaign of terror against paedophiles (who had often been the more competent and communally minded of schoolteachers).

*Historian Max Clifford agreed (in the course of a wide-ranging complaint about public service in Britain having been taken over by the left – D.Mail, 23 v):”[Britain’s] educational quangocracy remains wedded to non-selective education —and this is the principal obstacle to real improvement in our schools.”


QUEER WHITES WARNED

 While the Holy Republic of Éire voted to reject the advice of its priestly caste and allow yag marriage, it turned out that Gambia (95% Muslim and Black) would stand by its racial heritage. Gambian President Yahya Jammeh threatened his country’s homosexuals, telling them (AmRen, 20 v): “I will slit your throat.” Addressing an audience in the town of Farafeni as part of a nationwide tour, Jammeh said, “If you are a man and want to marry another man in this country and we catch you, no one will ever set eyes on you again, and no white person can do anything about it.”

Jammeh’s homophobic views had drawn ‘international censure’ before, and both Europe and the U.S. cut off their aid to the West African nation in 2014, citing its atrocious human rights record, after it introduced a law banning homosexuality. In 2013, the President had questioned why he had never seen a “homosexual chicken, or turkey”: “Homosexuality is anti-god, anti-human and anti-civilization. Homosexuals are not welcome in the Gambia. If we catch you, you will regret why you are born. I have buffaloes from South Africa and Brazil and they never date each other. We are ready to eat grass but we will not compromise on this.”

Gambia continued to draw substantial aid from other African countries.


PEECEE REVERSED  

‘Jelly wrestling’ between bikini-clad undergraduettes was scheduled to reappear in Magdalene College, Cambridge, two years after the paddling-pool fun had been stopped in deference to cries of ‘sexism’, ‘misogyny’ and ‘inappropriateness’ (D.Mail, 23 v).



 Placating egalitarians, the Cambridge students resolved to allow male students to join the girls in the pool.

And, rebalancing the public image of Oxbridge students, a referendum in Oxford mandated that that university should continue to insist that examinees wear ‘subfusc’ (white shirt, bow tie, dark suit and red carnation) while pelting each other with food and spraying each other with champagne.
