"European culture has
been gutted by Post-Modern 'victim'-obsessed PC indoctrination
"Actor, anti-woke hero - and shameless Donald Trump fan - Laurence Fox has apologised for a remark he made about the casting of a Sikh soldier in the film 1917 ... I understand why ... But it's still a mistake ... when the Social Justice witch hunt mob come after you, the very last thing you should ever offer them is the merest hint of contrition ... Apologies are only ever justified when you have done something wrong..."
The Abandonment of Asia Bibi (05 November 2018)
"[S]omething has been notable by its absence amid the admirable pro-Bibi efforts of Pakistani and Western Christians: the full and loud raising of the Western Liberal voice. The silence is depressing, but it isn't surprising. Because many in the West now actually agree with the Islamists who have rampaged through Pakistan in recent days ... They differ from Pakistan's extremists only by degree. Morally and philosophically they are on the same page - the page that says blasphemy against Islam is unacceptable. Only in the West we don't call it blasphemy. We call it 'Islamophobia' or 'hate speech'..."
The New Dark Age of Intolerance (30 September 2017)
"This week on the Radio 4's Today programme, we heard James Caspian, a quietly spoken, kindly psychotherapist, describing what has become a cause celebre at Bath Spa University ... He has been working for some years with people who for one reason or another have begun the process of gender-transition, and then come to regret it ... The university, having initially approved of his idea for a thesis, then turned down his application ... 'It's better not to offend people.'..."
Once again, leftist useful idiots demonstrate their hypocrisy and utter lack of self-awareness as they dance to the politically correct 'Identity Politics' tune of their puppet-masters: projecting onto others the very racism of which they - not their targets - are themselves guilty. Amazing.
Why the Left Must Confront the Cult of Identity Politics (28 September 2017)
"Like all cults, contemporary identity politics is hostile to any form of dissent. Over the past few years we have seen reputations trashed, distinguished careers unravelled, and often for the slightest of transgressions. The upside of all this is that opposition to identity politics is much more widespread among left-wingers than first it might appear; it is simply that many feel unable openly to criticise the trend for fear of damaging repercussions. And who can blame them? The identitarian left rarely misses the opportunity to make examples of those it deems to be heretical..."
My Chat With a Critical Race Theorist (12 September 2017)
"Critical Race Theory is obviously theoretical in nature. That's meant in the simple sense that it isn't primarily factual ... If theory were only - or simply - factual, then it wouldn't do the political job that 'race theorists' want it to do. In that sense, CRT is very much like Marxist theory. Indeed it is a variation on - or outgrowth from - Marxist theory. As Marx himself put it:..."
Jeremy Vain and the 'Me, Me, Me' Brigade (06 September 2017)
"Jeremy Vine's ... confessions ... surpass the accepted limits if banality [and] self-absorption ... Vanity is a very great problem in our society. The paradox, of course, is that narcissists today generally have very little to congratulate themselves about. Vine is a prime example of this..."
On the Therapeutic State (August/September 2017)
"One of the most important features of the therapeutic culture that I identified is victimisation - that is, a kind of victim mindset. Victimology is a narrative that is central the therapeutic idiom: understanding oneself as a victim of one's disease, pathology, addiction, or disorder. It is part of a therapeutic understanding of the world. One also finds this discourse in the narratives of identity politics, where people understand themselves to be victims of oppression by a dominant group..."
Would American Snowflakes Prefer the Return of George III? (27 February 2017)
"A particularly deranged one of the 'ideologically correct' from refusefascism.org appeared on Fox News to denounce President Trump for following the 'Hitler's Playbook' and being a 'danger to humanity'. She demanded that the entire seven billion human population of this planet should take to the streets in protest to force Trump out of office..."
No More 'Nazi' Please (25 February 2017)
"As many of are all too aware, a young female member of the Revolutionary Communist Party named Sunsara Taylor faced off with Tucker Carlson the other night over the question of whether or not the president of the United States is a Nazi, a Fascist, and an advocate of nuclear war, a bad hairpiece, liar, and a misogynist, but principally a Nazi. An actual Nazi..."

The Guardian Publishes Fake News From Notorious Internet Troll (30 November 2016)
"Liberal pundits praise fake story denouncing 'alt-right'. ... Godfrey Elfwich, ... has gained a large Twitter following for trolling the far-left. ... In what could be the most trollish act yet, Elfwich appears to have had an article anonymously published [in] The Guardian entitled, 'Alt-Right Online Poison Nearly Turned Me Into a Racist'..."
Prominent Journalism School Bans Newspapers for Being Too Right Wing (19 November 2016)

Equality (17 November 2016)
"Twitter demonstrates the SJW commitment to one of the five fundamental pillars of their social justice ideology: ... [N]o-one who claims equality to be a moral principle actually believes in it.

Read: The Worst Article Written by Anyone Ever (17 September 2016)
"Meet Yasmin Abdel-Magied: racing car engineer; hijab-wearing Sudanese-Australian activist; special snowflake - and author of what is without question the worst article ever written by anyone in the history of the universe. When I first tweeted about this atrocity last week many readers followed my link in disbelief that any article - even one written by a hijab-wearing Sudanese-Australian special snowflake activist, published in the 'Komment Macht Frei' section of the Guardian - could really be quite as bad as I claimed..."
The 'Cultural Appropriation' Brigade Can't Even Cope with Fiction (15 September 2016)
"Here is one of those stories that matters even though it preoccupies the Guardian. Last week the celebrated novelist Lionel Shriver gave an address at the Brisbane book festival. It was heralded as being about 'community and belonging' but ended up being about 'fiction and identity politics'. In particular Shriver (the author, ... ) addressed the issue of cultural appropriation..."
Very White Privilege! (06 September 2016)
"A group of young anti-racist activists closed down London City Airport earlier today. Led by Tarquin 'Che' Cholmondeley-Warner, the intrepid anarchists chained themselves to a sustainably farmed, ethno-friendly timber edifice and valiantly resisted several assaults on their position by the fascist forces of the racist establishment..."

Freddy Gray and Jihad: Narrative v Fact (24 May 2016)
"When I prosecuted the 'Blind Sheikh' (Omar Abdel Rahman) and the jihadist cell that bombed the World Trade Center and then plotted a simultaneous attack on several New York City landmarks, the organs of government that speak to the public through the media were making like irresponsible journalists. That is, they were eschewing facts and evidence, obsessively peddling a counterfactual narrative, to wit:..."
It's Pure Historical Amnesia to Say the Boomers Had It Good (10 March 2016)
"There are many ugly things about the new generational politics ... of Generation Y in particular, many of whom now devote great energy to slamming those born between 1946 and 1964, the Boomers, whom they accuse of having had such plush, resource-sucking lives that there is now no money left for the new generation ... I hate to break it to the young-ish, but you are not a uniquely hard-done-by generation; in fact you have many, many things far easier than the Boomers did, and certainly than even older generations did. ... The majority of Boomers fought hard to make a life: they migrated, trekked, slaved in naff jobs, handed wads of rent to irritating council people, spent hours cleaning, and often had no property to show for it at the end. And they did that for us. For you and me..."
"On Monday, ESPN personality Stephen A. Smith spoke at the University of South Alabama about 'The Legacy, History and Impact of the African-American Athlete' in honour of Black History Month. Smith addressed the younger black generation in the crowd of a mixture of children, college students and adults..."
The Pleasures of Victimhood (29 February 2016)
Once upon a time, in an unrecognisable period of history, victimhood was something to dread. It didn't merely bother you. It bruised you, robbed you, raped you and sometimes even killed you ... Jewish victims of Tsarist Russia, African American victims of the Antebellum South, Romani Gypsy victims of Europe ... Victimhood, even as it has declined as a real phenomenon, currently enjoys incredible popularity as a concept. It is no longer something to be feared, but to be craved. To be a victim in the Modern West is to have won the political and social jackpot..."
The Awful Rise of 'Virtue Signalling' (18 April 2015)
"Mishal Husain was particularly aggressive to Nigel Farage on the Today programme recently, interrupting him mid-sentence, insinuating that he is racist or that, even if he isn't, his membership is. She would doubtless like to believe that she was being touch but fair. But another force within her was stronger. Mishal was 'virtue signalling' indirectly - indicating that she has the right, approved, liberal media-elite opinions, one of which is despising Ukip and thus, most importantly, advertising that she is not racist. When she later goes to a dinner party attended by other members of the media elite, she will be welcomed and approved for having displayed the approved, virtuous views ... There was a time when Britain had a form of Christianity in which pride was considered a sin. Maybe that is part of why some of us find all this virtue signalling obnoxious. it's just showing off..."
Dworkin's Dangerous Idea: Steve Moxon Deconstructs Identity Politics (20 September 2014)
"'Identity politics' (manifested most obviously as political correctness) is predicated on the realisation that the workers are never going to bring about a Marxist revolution. That Marxist theory did not work in practice was already apparent by the late 1920s in the absence of any European imitation of the Russian Revolution. The cognitive-dissonance that this produced for the Marxist intelligentsia grew over time obliging further ratcheting up of the ideology, which more and more relied on asserting internal consistency to the exclusion of contact with reality. Neither the falsity of the ideology nor gullibility for believing it was admitted but instead face was saved by blaming others. The fall guys here were those perceived to have let the side down: to wit, the workers. As is well documented, the initial attempts to explain the failure by the proletariat to act according to Marx's predictions were made by academics working in the late 1920s onwards in Frankfurt and then New York..."
Meet the Cry-Bully: A Hideous Hybrid of Victim and Victor (21 April 2014)

Fast forward some four decades and things are not so simple. This is the age of the Cry-Bully, a hideous hybrid of victim and victor, weeper and walloper..."
The Scruton Tapes: An Anatomy of a Modern Hit Job (27 April 2019)
"Sometimes a scandal is not just a scandal, but a biopsy of a society. So it is with the assault on Sir Roger Scruton ... Scruton is the latest, though far from the first victim of the modern outrage mob ... Anyone, it seems, can claim a scalp using Twitter: twist the words of your victim and pet the outrage mob do the rest ... except in this instance, it unravelled and the whole nature of the trick can now be exposed ... We live in an age of character assassination. What we now desperately need is a counter-revolution based on the importance of individuals over mobs, the primacy of truth over offence..."
"The fall out of this will be huge. Indeed, it is hard to overstate what a triumph this represents for free speech, sound thinking and honest journalism against the malign and increasingly devious and censorious forces of the modern left ... tradition, culture, customs, institutions - the means by which we preserve what is best about our past - have no place in the year zero mindset of the 'progressives' on their endless mission to remake the world anew and build their Socialist New Jerusalem on the ruins of Western civilisation. For these leftists, the end always justifies the means. What does it matter if you use lies and subterfuge to trash a man's reputation..."

Viewers' comments: "Typical Witch-Hunt culture of the left" / "Very well said Paul. Eaton is the disgusting kind of comrade who turned me, even as a student, from leftie towards the right" / "Just another Neo Marxist activist within the MSM. Unfortunately the Political class, Judiciary, Academia is rife with this far left bias" / "Sir Tim Hunt. Sir Roger Scruton. What madness it is that squealing weaklings ... with their victim mentality and lying Marxist snakes now have such power to bring down giants. Communism 101... they are coming for our intellectuals" / "...using selective editing to defame and destroy his ideological rivals" / "The sheer nastiness of these people is beyond belief" / "I'm not particularly shocked by the conduct of this wealthy Marxist. He's behaved despicably. It's typical"
Roger Scruton: An Apology for Thinking (12 April 2019)
"I recently gave an interview to the New Statesman, on the assumption that, as the magazine's former wine critic I would be treated with respect, and that the journalist, George Eaton, was sincere in wanting to talk to me about my intellectual life. Not for the first time I am forced to acknowledge what a mistake it is to address young leftists as though they were responsible human beings. Here is my brief response to an unscrupulous collection of out of context remarks, some of them merely words designed to accuse me of thought-crimes ... We in Britain are entering a dangerous social condition in which the direct expression of opinions that conflict - or merely seem to conflict - with a narrow set of orthodoxies is instantly punished by a band of self-appointed vigilantes. We are being cowed into abject conformity around a dubious set of official doctrines and told to adopt a world view that we cannot examine for fear of being publicly humiliated by the censors..."
Roger Scruton's Sacking Exposes the Tories' Cowardice (12 April 2019)
"[T]oday the [New Statesman]'s deputy editor, George Eaton, took to social media to announce the results of what he is parading as a 'gotcha' interview. The interview - which Eaton conducted himself - was, he promised, positively crammed full with 'a series of outrageous remarks'. Eaton later posted a picture of himself drinking champagne to celebrate the fate of his interviewee, with the caption' The feeling when you get right-wing racist and homophobe Roger Scruton sacked as a Tory government advisor.' Eaton has since deleted the picture. Here it is..."

Viewers' comments: "'Idiocracy' is now reality" / "Our Fourth Estate has become a Fifth Column" / Political Correctness is the most dangerous threat the Western world has faced since the Cold war" / "This is the inevitable result of Political Correctness, otherwise known as 'fear to speak the truth'. The country is now run by Leftist bullies" / "Well said sir. No doubt you will get banned for speaking the truth" / "Marxism chipping away at the very foundations of this country. Very sad times" / "This is the kind of willful ignorance and malevolence which now rules the world. 1984 is now complete" / "Truth seems to have become a bad word" / "Ignorance is now the only qualification required to get one into 'uni', and then to find a 'job' afterward. There is not one well-read person among the critics of Sir Roger Scruton" / "Much needed and well spoken commentary ... No more intellect in politics, no more independent media, no more room for debate. Just postmodern crazyness and emotional driven idiots that rule the institutions"
Beware of Fascism (12 April 2019)
"The word 'fascism' has suffered a hyperinflation and consequent loss of meaning ... one has to specify exactly what one means by fascism. So here's my definition: it's a systematic attempt by mob or state (typically first by one, then by the other) to make people submit to a pernicious ideological ethos that deliberately perverts morality, culture and common sense in pursuit of power. The political slogans brandished by a fascist mob, or whether it's described as right-wing or left-wing, are to me immaterial. It's the core that matters, not the veneer ... fascists don't argue: they scream, froth at the mouth, bully, threaten and dictate. In that spirit, the philosopher Roger Scruton was sacked as housing advisor to the government for saying, among other 'controversial' things, that homosexuality isn't normal. Sir Roger should have been more up on his terminology: normal is what agrees with the neo-fascist ethos; abnormal is anything that contradicts it..."
The Real Roger Scruton Scandal (11 April 2019)
"The Roger Scruton scandal is indeed disturbing. Not because of what Roger Scruton said, but because of what the New Statesman did. In order to score a hit against a conservative philosopher cum Tory advisor who has always rubbed leftists up the wrong way, the New Statesman's deputy editor dispensed with the ethics of journalism, wilfully distorted a quotation, and inferred racism where, to the best of our knowledge, none exists ... Demanding someone's scalp because you disagree with their views is one of the most depressing features of our age ... A once prestigious magazine now distorts and virtually misquotes as part of a transparent hit job against a philosopher whose views it doesn't like..."
The Smear of Roger Scruton (10 April 2019)
"The attempt to remove Roger Scruton from an honorary advisory role on the U.K. government's 'Building Better, Building Beautiful" commission failed when it was tried last November. But it succeeded today. 'You expect people who spend their lives on Twitter to have this store of malice but when it comes up in parliament, as it did, I was astonished' said Scruton of last year's controversy to a journalist who lives on Twitter, but who writes for the New Statesman. That journalist, George Eaton, conducted an interview with Scruton, and included this summary paragraph:..."

Viewers' comments: "Very well said. Clown world elevates human garbage and puts it on a pedestal forcing all to worship it. The complete inversion of the natural order ... and all that is good" / "The Left hates [that] which is beautiful because it signifies superiority and not equality" / "...and then they came for the intellectuals..." / "As Plato says in the Republic, people who live their entire lives in a cave will persecute anyone who tells them about the light outside" / "Reminds me of the first Narnia book, when the strong and noble lion, Aslan, is killed and the weak dance on his body. Abhorrent" / "Evil cannot stand beauty or truth" / "Unfortunately, true philosophers have no place in the modern world, where egalitarianism reduces everything to the lowest common denominator" / "If you inspire people with aesthetic beauty and philosophical ideas, they begin to think for themselves. There is no place for that kind of dangerous behaviour in a world dominated by ... nihilistic control mechanisms" / "Someday we'll tear all the modern garbage down, and make our corner of the world beautiful again"

They would be better served by going home to their bedrooms and sitting at their computer and studying their chosen subject" / "The thing is that they don't feel embarrassed. They still cling to their arguments even after being completely taken apart by logic and reason. That's what makes this growing mindset so dangerous" / "Spouting the words that those in power want them to without an ability to rationalise and think for themselves" / "Swallow the propaganda.

The following extended extract is from the article: The Origin of 'Identity Politics' & 'Political Correctness'
"Identity politics (sometimes dubbed 'political correctness') is the result of a political-Left major backlash against the mass of ordinary people (in Europe and 'the West'), beginning in the 1920s/30s, in the wake of the persistent failure of Marxist theory to be realised in European 'revolution' or any real change through democracy. In shifting the blame away from Marxist theory and those gullible enough to adhere to it, and on to those the theory had prescribed and predicted would have been the beneficiaries, if only they had responded accordingly ('the [white, male] workers'); then the cognitive-dissonance within the political-left mindset caused by this crisis to an extent was salved"
"As with any fervent ideology, a hallmark of the political-Left is interpreting anything and everything in its own ideological terms to claim as a manifestation of the ideology and its prophecy - jumping on a bandwagon, so to speak; though here only to hijack it. The bandwagon here was, of course, the American civil rights movement, which though enjoying ubiquitous support within black communities - to the point often of various forms of extremism - featured virtually nil endorsement of socialism ... It is from the time of this co-option that 'identity politics' dates; many considering that the movement was incorporated into the Left in the wake of King's assassination in 1968 - the major turning-point year in political-Left politics generally"
"'Civil rights', as the first great 'single-issue' campaign, served not least to provide an acceptable cloak for the Left to avoid provoking a resurgence of McCarthysim. The major social upheaval of 'civil rights' with its large-scale and widespread rioting was easily the nearest thing in then recent US history to look like the promised Marxist 'revolution', and obviously was just the practical application the 'theory' was seeking. Moreover, the protagonists (black Americans) were eminently separable form the now despised 'workers' per se, in being presentable as a new 'group; from outside of the former fray of 'boss' versus 'worker'.
"This accident of history served to add 'black' to 'woman' as 'the new oppressed' ... 'The worker' in effect was retrospectively stereotyped as both 'man' and 'white'. With the inverse of this stereotype of 'white' being not just 'black American' but 'black' - that is, ethnic-minority generically ... so it was that the new 'agents of social change' / 'disadvantaged' / 'oppressed' were extended from women to also include all ethnic minorities"
"It is only with the knowledge of how this developed that sense can be made of why ethnicity is held above the myriad other possible differences that could be utilised as in-group markers, when in fact there is nothing inherent in ethnicity as an in-group marker to produce inter-group prejudice that is particularly more pernicious"
"Indeed, the worst inter-communal conflicts nominally between different ethnicities usually are between different cultural heritages with no discernible 'racial' differences of any kind - and what (non-ethnic) differences there are can be minimal; the lack of contrast actually fuelling the intensity of conflict, such is the need for groups to feel distinguished from each other"
"Furthermore, ethnic prejudice is anything but restricted to or even predominantly 'white' on 'black': inter-ethnic (eg, 'black' on Asian) and ethnic-on-'white' 'racism' can be, often is and may usually be the greater problem; and a negative attitude to a certain ethnicity does not imply a similar attitude to other ethnicities"
"The specific US experience, given the highly divisive politics in the wake of the American Civil War over the basis of the Southern US economy in African slavery, does not translate to elsewhere; notably not to Europe - as was starkly evidenced in the experience of World War II 'black' American GIs stationed in England in how they were favourably received by locals, who sided with them when discriminated against"
"'Racial divides' in European 'white' host countries are the result not of mutual antipathy but affiliative forces, principally within migrant enclaves and secondarily within the 'host' community; in both cases being through in-group 'love', not out-group 'hate'" [EMcD: though the latter part of this observation is indeed true in normal circumstances, this does not, of course, take account of the Islamic/Koranic doctrines of Al-Hijra (Immigration), Taqiyya (Lying and Deceit), and Razzia/Ghazwa (Rape and Slavery), Dawa (Cultural and Stealth Jihad), and Terrorist and Violent Jihad, carried out by fundamentalist Muslims as they settle in increasing numbers in Western countries with the sole and deliberate purpose of making every remaining Dar al-Harb ('House of War': i.e. any non-Muslim country) into a Dar al-Islam ('House of Submission': i.e all Muslim countries) until Islam finally achieves its longed-for global Caliphate.]

"The Frankfurt School believed that as long as an individual had the belief - or even the hope of belief - that his divine gift of reason could solve the problems facing society, then that society would never reach the state of hopelessness and alienation that they considered necessary to provoke socialist revolution.
Their task, therefore, was as swiftly as possible to undermine the Judaeo-Christian legacy. To do this they called for the most negative destructive criticism possible of every sphere of life which would be designed to de-stabilize society and bring down what they saw as the 'oppressive' order. Their policies, they hoped, would spread like a virus - 'continuing the work of Western Marxists by other means' as one of their members noted.
To further the advance of their 'quiet' cultural revolution ... the [Frankfurt] School recommended (among other things):
(1) the creation of racism
One of the main ideas of the Frankfurt School was to exploit Freud's idea of 'pansexualism' - the search for pleasure, the exploitation of the differences between the sexes, the overthrowing of traditional relationships between men and women. To further their aims they would:
the authority of the father, deny the specific roles of father and
