Various real life events converging just now and am behind with the posts, so there’ll be a 24h hiatus until tomorrow mid-evening – don’t slit your wrists over this.
David Moyes: Sunderland manager charged over ‘slap’ comment
Well if she doesn’t need a good slapping, the FA certainly does. As pundit David Vance wrote:
“The UK, where a football manager faces a police prosecution for banter and #FGM butchers get off scot free.”
Firstly, it teaches snowflakes like this one that she need only whine about something, anything at all and the police will come and charge whoever it was had annoyed her.
And this leads inexorably to the second point – that it does zero to advance relations between men and women. Remember, this
bint young lady called those authorities in, it wasn’t some do-gooder who’d overheard it.
Therefore, in the light of that, plus that female Chelsea doctor, no club in its right mind would go anywhere near a female after that, nor allow one within range. It also does nothing for the female journo profession, nor does it enamour snowflakes to men in general.
See, maybe he was out of order, it may have been that Mourinho was too but this was a footballing environment, no prom night and things get said, as Katie Hopkins has often pointed out. Interesting that since Chelsea banned females from being in there, there’ve been no further incidents of the kind.
There was an incident years ago which may have resulted in charges downunder – a footballer on crutches, asked an inane question by a journo, threw a crutch at the journo. Nothing whatever came of it, because that’s how males deal with things, otherwise you’re a wimp.
If females can’t play by those rules, they shouldn’t be there.
Now this is a different tack to the one I took this morning over Bill O’Reilly because his was about sexual advances. My point this morning was that, whether he did or he didn’t, he left himself wide open and it was explained why.
The only other thing I’d say is about Moyes – that look of contrition was sickening. Either he meant his remarks or they were in the heat of the moment.
If he did mean them, then for goodness sake, he should have manned up and worn those remarks and what they brought. If they were in the heat of the moment, then he needed to make it clear that football club rooms, after a bad performance, are no place for snowflakes to be, let alone ones taking umbrage at nothing.
It is starting to look more and more bizarre in the White House.
Another comment in general terms on the Establishment:
Perhaps this will explain why Aquirre was put into the Whitehouse. It is a quote from syndicated columnist Edith Kermit Roosevelt, granddaughter of Teddy Roosevelt:
“The word “Establishment” is a general term for the power elite in international finance, business, the professions and government, largely from the northeast, who wield most of the power regardless of who is in the White House. Most people are unaware of the existence of this “legitimate Mafia.”
Yet the power of the Establishment makes itself felt from the professor who seeks a foundation grant, to the candidate for a cabinet post or State Department job. It affects the nation’s policies in almost every area.
Roosevelt added that this group’s goal is “a One World Socialist state governed by ‘experts’ like themselves.”
YTA, the student organization which was handling Coulter’s speech at Berkeley has withdrawn, citing the police agreement that they will not step in regarding student matters. Therefore Antifa can do as they wish, provided there are no deaths.
Things are completely and utterly wrong in America.
Meanwhile the Muslims and their mates, Antifa, are doing their worst, supremely confident no one is going to stop them.
Someone is coordinating this
The complete lack of spine at the top level in all major western nations, the complete unwillingness to do something quite simple about law and order, suggests the establishment is hellbent now on conflagration cross the west, as the Stage 4 of Marxism. They really do seem to think this is the big one now and no attempt whatever is made to act ethically.
They also appear to have the dirt on each leader and are using it.

This is an interview with a young Frenchman, Francois Brun, living in the west of Paris, both of us using English.
I opened by asking about the poll which has put Macron on 64% and Le Pen on 36%.
François Brun: Huge propaganda for Macron. The French are idiots. But Marine can win second round.
FB: In fact many people don’t want him as president because he is Hollande’s son. Marine’s campaign is better now. The media are corrupt, I have never seen this in my life. It is EXTREME propaganda as much as Hillary/Trump. But people are rejecting massively the establishment.
Me: But can she win?
FB: Yes she can. I am talking seriously. Her result was not good because many FN supporters voted for Fillon (they wanted to avoid Macron). And also 75% of people who voted Fillon will vote Marine.
Me: What is Marion like?
FB: Marion helps a lot Marine.
Me: But is she strong enough? Her father said her campaign was weak.
FB: Yes it is strong enough because communists will support Marine. Communist did 20%.
Me: And the debate?
FB: I am looking forward to watching debate between baby Hollande and Marine on Wednesday 3rd. He is an absolute disaster. He is extremely bad on TV debates. However I am really frightened by the French people who voted for him.
Me: Too many people?
FB: No. Young people support Marine. The idiot elderly vote for Macron in big towns because they think he is lovely and don’t have a brain. The media are doing massive propaganda it’s awful. And what’s funny: the fake Tories want to join Macron because they think he is going to win.
His campaign started badly last Sunday because he looks too posh and some idiots now understand who he really is.
Me: Yes, I saw this photograph:
FB: [Laughs] Yes, we have many photos. You know I have never seen this before in French politics. He is a joke. He doesn’t speak properly, and he doesn’t deliver any idea.
If Marine is not elected, then we have to use military force otherwise our country is lost and we will have to watch France burn.
It is extremely important Election and the French are aware of that. Now I am waiting for the TV debate and she will kill him. It is good for her to be second [on the first round] because the media don’t kill her too much.
We went into May and our GE, into her u-turn on pensions, her raising of taxes, her commitment to paying the EU billions until 2020. Francois asked about all that and made comments, then:
FB: I am happy because parliament election are at the same time as yours in June. So that Frexit Brexit at the same time. Bye Germany. Bye Juncker. Stop migration. Stop Calais.
I know a lot of Muslim people who support Marine because they live in bad districts and they don’t want migration. I have some demographics here.
Compare the two maps and understand that working class people vote Marine.
[Click on map and then again to enlarge]
And this was the overall result:
In Paris lots of difference between the districts. I live right in the west. Marine is only 4% in Paris … I am one of the 4%. In Paris it is very divided. The west side is very traditional conservative.
But surprisingly, they don’t vote Le Pen because it sounds “poor”. They don’t want to vote like their domestic. In France you know it is socialist culture.
People don’t want to hurt.
They are idiots.
The Z Man looks back at Casablanca, an interesting take. Yours would also be appreciated.
I was watching this episode of the Mark Steyn Show on Sunday and they made mention of Casablanca. It occurred to me that it had been so long since I watched these old movies, I no longer remember much about them. My generation was probably the last to grow up seeing these old films on television.
He now mentions two key issues:
1. The acting is the part that does not work as well today, as the old films were acted like stage plays, which required the audience to use their imaginations. Modern technology lets the audience drop into a coma while watching a film.
Every so often, an incident comes up which beats any amount of blogposts, tweets, argument and counter-argument. There it is, in a nutshell.
Please note – I’m well aware of our debate over the obsolescence of the left-right continuum and how it became statist-libertarian and now globalist-patriot but it still does not quite explain the mindset in quite the same way as left-right, which is why those terms persist. Let’s start.
The Left’s Ultimate Plan Revealed Thanks to a hoax pulled on the Huffington Post
For a distillation of the contemporary left’s worldview, one needn’t look any further than a blog post that was recently published at the Huffington Post: “Could it Be Time to Deny White Men the Franchise?”
At least one could have turned to this post—until HuffPo took it down. But we’ll get to that shortly.
The author, a person going by the name of “Shelley Garland,” a self-declared South African and graduate student in philosophy, argued that it is morally necessary to temporarily deny the franchise to white men. Moreover, at least some of their resources should be repossessed and “redistributed” to others.
Garland explains her reasons:
First, white men are bad for left-wing progressivism. “Some of the biggest blows to the progressive cause in the past year,” she writes, “have often been due to the votes of white men.”
Another reason why white men need to be constrained is compensatory in nature. The disenfranchisement of white men, Garland eagerly wishes, “could see a redistribution of global assets to their rightful owners. After all, white men have used the imposition of Western legal systems around the world to reinforce modern capitalism.
The backlash on social media was immediate and relentless. Initially, the editor-in-chief of HuffPo SA, Verashni Pillay, stridently defended the post. Garland’s “underlying analysis about the uneven distribution of wealth and power in the world,” Pillay remarked, “is pretty standard for feminist theory.”
Then, however, something happened.
Huffington Post SA removed the post, supposedly because “the blog submission from an individual who called herself Shelley Garland, who claimed to be an MA student at UCT, cannot be traced and appears not to exist.” It then reaffirmed “the Constitutional values of South Africa,” especially “universal enfranchisement.”
The “Shelley Garland” post was a hoax.
A person, a female, claiming to be the author of the piece referred to it as “total garbage” that she packed with clichés—“black and female-identifying bodies,” “patriarchy,” etc.—that are common currency among the “less sensible left.”
I believe that this Editor-in-Chief has since moved on but it does not undo the damage and the ridicule HuffPost must now be held in, let alone the minds of the left in general.
