Patriotism is not a dirty word

Today’s tragic events in Brussels once again demonstrate what can happen when a country engages in foreign adventures unrelated to their national interests and at the same time fails to integrate foreigners. EU nations would do well to learn pretty quickly that patriotism is not a dirty word and that insisting that new arrivals integrate and assimilate is neither xenophobic or nationalist, it is plain common sense and very much necessary for a country to remain secure.

Say what you will about banking, Switzerland is the perfect example of how to be both proud of you identity and welcoming of others at the same time: By remaining neutral, staying out of other people’s affairs they have become a prosperous and very secure nation, and all without succumbing to police state measures or excessive “nanny-stateism”.

By remaining a true nation state (as opposed to a mere region of a super state) and therefore remaining in control of who can enter the country, they can afford to integrate and support new arrivals. In return, they expect that those newcomers will assimilate and assume Swiss values. As a result, there are no terrorist attacks on Swiss soil. Funny how this works…

In Switzerland there are no muslim ghettos, no no-go zones, no shanty towns and no troops on the streets.

And don’t say “banks”. Switzerland is proof that by minding your own business, taking care of your own and acting in your own interest as opposed to those of the Washington cabal you can be safe and prosperous and do so irrespective of how much your neighbouring countries whore themselves out to foreign interests.

Don’t be afraid to, as a nation or culture, know who you are and take rightful pride in your accomplishments. The world will notice, pay attention and leave you alone in return.

David Icke: So What?!

In case you’re not familiar with David Icke, Google can tell you plenty. This article should still be here when you return. 😉

Having read and heard a good amount of David Icke’s theories about our reality, I am forced to ask: So what?! It’s one thing to state what’s wrong, but quite another to say what should be (whether he’s right or wrong is largely immaterial in this context). He succeeds in the former but fails in the latter.

What Icke seems to suggest as the answer to society’s ills seems to be the age old hippie philosophy of “if we all just love one another it will all be cosmic”. Bad news, Mr. Icke, that too is bollocks. Replacing one world order of unity through norming with another that centers around blind love isn’t helping matters, it’s merely another version of the same old bait and switch that our politicians are so well known for. Don’t decry religion wholesale by suggesting and by fiat establish a new age faith, speak reason buttressed by facts, for, as the educated know, you can have your own opinion, but not your own facts.

A revolution in consciousness, greater free speech, more diplomacy and liberty to all, sign me up, but please, just devote some time to suggesting how this might be accomplished. Dreams are great, but a man with a plan is far more powerful.

Imaginary Phobias

The media and socialists everywhere like to accuse people with values of all sorts of phobias these days, with “Islamophobia” and “Homophobia” being just two of the most popular.

As I, unlike them, actually know what the word phobia means, feel I should point out that all their shouting is a mere expression of their cowardice and furthermore an admission of repressed guilt. If you need details, actually read Ann Coulter’s books from start to finish before talking. She’s funnier than Rosie O’Donnell before breakfast.

Just because some of us subscribe to Christian values does not automatically make us afraid of homosexuals or muslims (rationally or irrationally). All it means is that there are people who disagree with what certain members of those two groups stand for, period. And if it wasn’t for the immature and the mainstream media, their very own echo chamber, that would be it.

But because it’s sexy to claim that Islam means peace (it means submission) and to throw yourself at Christians and force them to abdicate their beliefs, that somehow makes it a grave offence to not participate in their grand illusion.

Disagreement is not the same as fear. If it were, how on earth could deputy PM Clegg disagree with the PM on surveillance policy? Granted, he probably doesn’t really, but if he were honest and not some left-wing B’stard, that example would stand.

It is insulting to intelligent people to prevent debate on important issues. What western society needs is not “respect” and “tolerance”, but vigorous debate and education from multiple points of view. Understanding grows from seeking information, not from mindless subservience to vacuous words.

We’re not anti-Brand, we’re anti-stupidity

In recent days, the usually awake alternate media have been promoting the idea that “the British establishment is hunting Russell Brand“. Not only do I share the latter’s opinion for a change, but I also object to this being portrayed as class warfare, one of Brand’s pet subjects.

What we, the establishment as well as clear thinking, mature adults in Britain object to is Brand’s immature, infantile and naive thinking. His so-called fresh perspective is nothing more than yet another re-hash of the same old communist class warfare tripe that has been exposed and debunked by thinking people for ages. Brand is not only not original, he is also just the latest tool being paid to promote social democracy and all the evil that comes with it.

Brand is unoriginal, embarrassingly bland, and yes, is in it for the money. So it’s not “the establishment hunting Brand”, it’s grown ups trying to educate a child.

The climate alarmists have lost the debate: it’s time we stopped indulging their poisonous fantasy – Telegraph Blogs

The climate alarmists have lost the debate: it’s time we stopped indulging their poisonous fantasy – Telegraph Blogs.

It’s a shame the “climate change” industry is so profitable. This will relegate reality and the truth accompanying it to the sidelines for a long time.

Climate alarmists are the snake oil salesmen of the 21st century. Like their counterparts of yore, they too are portraying natural, unstoppable processes as something they have influence over.

Face it, lemmings, climate changes, it always has and always will. Nothing we have done will change that, and all that the alarmists’ spazzing does is line their pockets. “Climate change” is a racket, a plausible sounding theory used to extort huge sums of money from governments who will then steal it from their citizens.

I do favor freedom. But like Obamacare, it should be illegal to charge me for something I don’t believe in and have no need for. If you wanna pay a flat earth tax, suit yourselves, but kindly only waste your own money!

Pat Buchanan: ‘Whites Are the Only Group That You Can Discriminate Against Legally in America Now’ | NewsBusters.

Once again, Buchanan is right. To assume that Asians excel at hard science and math is racist, but to assume that whites will get whatever they ask for is not?!

True, technically the standards are the same for everyone, but a white applicant who can just about afford college but misses the mark has no fallback. Who will give him a chance? If any white person will have a comfortable life anyway, why is there a white lower class? Why are there so many poor white people? Wakey, wakey, discriminating against whites is racist too!

The time when whites are no longer a super majority in any state of the US is approaching fast. What will it take for the blind to finally become color blind as MLK asked for?! When he spoke of a color blind society he did not mean go out and screw the white man at every turn.

Once again, the choice is clear: Either we can all have special interest groups, or none of us can. If skin color doesn’t mean anything, ban the NAACP and La Raza!

Golove strikes again

I’ve been getting into experimental music and Krautrock recently, so “High Voltage!” seemed like a fitting compilation to point me in some new directions.

On that playlist I found Telstar, the true beginning of the British invasion. Not until I heard it did I remember how long it had been since I last heard it and how much I loved that song. It was there I realized that Golove had struck again.

Many years ago, probably ten years ago now, I took one of the most important courses of my college career, Rock Music, taught by Professor Golove. Over the course of a semester, he introduced me and the 100+ other students to a plethora of music genres, artists and influential songs. Every now and then, I come across some artist or song and remember that I’ve known it for many years, often thanks to that class. I was into music beforehand, but I still learned a ton. So even if you’re a music geek, do it for listening to Megadeth in the pursuit of academia! And if classical music is your only muse, remember, many famous musicians didn’t know the style that would make them famous until they branched out.

So undergrads, UB students and prospective UB students, if there ever was a class you had to pick a particular university for, MUS 265 is it! And if that’s not enough, there’s always Dr. Colon’s Anal Chemistry.

Success won’t find you regardless of your efforts, it will find you because of them. So if you’re willing to apply yourself outside the classroom too, I can still only recommend my dear Alma Mater.

  • Don’t take things literally. Seriously, I will not be held responsible.
  • There’s plenty of opinion here, but also pitch black humor, satire and deep thoughts.
  • Sometimes if you don’t “get it”, I probably didn’t intend for that to happen. No hard feelings.
  • If I tried to explain, we’d still be here in the afterlife.

Internet Access Is Not a Human Right (NYT)

“There is a high bar for something to be considered a human right. Loosely put, it must be among the things we as humans need in order to lead healthy, meaningful lives, like freedom from torture or freedom of conscience. It is a mistake to place any particular technology in this exalted category, since over time we will end up valuing the wrong things.”

Occupy are not the solution: they embody the problem – Telegraph Blogs

Occupy are not the solution: they embody the problem – Telegraph Blogs.

Delingpole echoes my previous comments and adds some helpful videos. The occupy movement is a marxist communist horde of miseducated brats who have no idea of how the world actually works.

The essential flaw in any communist is always that they ignore the glaring weaknesses of their preferred system of coercion (communism is coercion, not government), namely that communism perpetuates misery whereas libertarian governments produce wealth and stability.

Take the GDR, communism’s showcase. Sure, all kinds of goods were available, but none of them all the time. And if communism truly were the perfect system, why was the MfS / Stasi so powerful and ever-present?

Freedom and liberty are natural, ideals that conform with what is. Marxism, leninism and communism in general are artificially generated systems of coercion that create a class of untouchables that live entirely different lives from the great masses who live in abject poverty.

So as Delingpole correctly says, the occupy movement is ironically in favor of the status quo. It is therefore no wonder they have so many friends in the Social Democratic parties of the West.

Wall St. occupied by Marxist scum

Details at Left-Wing Institute For Civil Discourse.

The way the mainstream media have or have not been reporting on the mess at surrounding Wall Street, you’d think that you may indeed be watching the seeds of a genuine threat to the world banker cabal. And you’d be totally wrong.

What is taking place in NYC is the usual grouping of marxists, leninists and other forms of socialist kids who have nothing better to do than to regurgitate the falsehoods their idols invented.

Add to this the potentially massive support from unions and their leaders and you have a massively illegitimate fake protest. Instead of Shakespeare in the park it’s Che Guevara in the park.

This so-called “occupy wall street” movement is nothing but yet another distraction. Given the hippies’ dismal track record, the bankers are just fine with them hanging out there and being able to get their friends in the media to spread the official story that there is a legitimate protest going on, that there are activists giving common Americans a voice, etc.. This way, those who could actually end the bankers’ reign will stand down in the false belief that their concerns are being taken care of.

To compare that bunch of loonies to Tahrir square and Libya is an insult to those who died in battle to topple Mubarak and Ghaddafi. They didn’t do so alone either, but they did have genuine grievances. The yobs in NYC are nothing but your typical college students, bored rich kids, infantile “adults” and other vermin. Just like they didn’t elect Gore, didn’t stop the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq or Libya, or for the older fogies, stop the Vietnam war, they will not tarnish the bankers’ reputation or security one iota.

In a funny turn of irony, there is indeed nothing to see near Wall Street. Safe to pull a Giuliani and clean up now Mr. Mayor!

Cameron recalls Parliament as London riots spread (C4N)

“This is not about race, faith and class pure and simple,” said Professor Mike Hardy

via Cameron recalls Parliament as London riots spread – Channel 4 News.

Faith, maybe, but beyond that I’m not so sure. I very much doubt there were any rich business men among the rabble. This is a failure of no one but the criminals themselves and their utter lack of any notion of civilized behavior. It’s their animal like primal behavior that caused the loss and utter mayhem.

Mind you, if Boris and Cameron hadn’t pussyfooted around this long much of this could have been prevented, but that’s another story.

Much of this could also have been curtailed had the labor governments of the past not opened the floodgates to just any vermin and instead focussed on integrating new arrivals like they used to before 1968.

Recent events certainly are a post-humous vindication for the late MP Enoch Powell who predicted these sorts of events 43 years ago. I wonder if Mr. Hardy would like to personally apologize to the victims and tell them that those animals just wanted a better life.

Impeach Obama and expel (almost) all Democrats

Although many true words have been spoken about yesterday’s travesty of an unconstitutional act by Obama and his cronies, I feel I should add to this and post some links too.

The question that should be asked is who twisted whose arms in this tragedy. When a strong majority of Americans, all GOP representatives, a few dozen liberal reps, doctors and experts strongly oppose the imposition of communist “health care” on a nation, but the idiot in chief rams legislation through Congress anyway, the question to ask is: Who benefits from a nation under legal guardians and death panels for all? I won’t spell it out, but here’s a hint: It’s not we the people.

As former Gov. Mitt Romney correctly pointed out, “President Obama has betrayed his oath to the nation.” Never mind that liberals have long forgotten what an oath is, but an oath Obama has broken, and for that he should be forced to pay.

This bill is not about “free health care” (something that only exists in the infantile minds of deluded liberals), it’s about far more government, higher taxes, higher deficits, and last but not least the loss of more of our freedoms. I think Aron Russo might pop down for this idiocy.

Luckily, almost a dozen governors have not forgotten what documents they swore to uphold. Let’s hope they can avoid activist courts.
