Progressive types have been pissing and moaning their way through 2017, constantly on the verge of either breaking a cup or checking in to a psych ward, but good news is round the corner. A vision was revealed to me and I can let it be known that 2018 is the year when all the metro-leftist dreams come true and society is remade in their image.Read More 2018, When All Our Dreams Come True
Hello, we are the progressive left, and as you’re all a bit thick and racist, we’ve come up with a list of instructions for how you must change your behaviour. It’s not your fault that you’re thick, and you’re racist mainly because you keep looking at the Daily Mail, which doesn’t kneel before the majesty […]Read More PROGRESSIVE LEFT INSTRUCTIONS FOR ALL YOU THICKOS
It’s not a backlash against Islam that Britain needs to fear, it’s the opposite. That the country is too restrained, too tolerant, and too fundamentally decent, still, to react to its changed circumstances. But decency means knowing when to defend yourself and your values. Decency means knowing the difference between when to remain passive, and when to stand up to a bully.Read More Agendas & Apologia
Forgive my transgression but I am about to commit a terrible sin and speak badly of Maajid Nawaz. His counter extremism organisation Quilliam, based in Russell Square, is a difficult group to figure out.Read More The Russell Square Reformation
Having fought for years for gay and lesbian rights, having stood up in defiance of the religious right for the liberty to ridicule the church, having rejected thin-skinned theological calls for special treatment, having championed individual liberties and freedom of thought and expression, the progressive left has now decided to give all that up and convert to Islam. Allahu Akbar.Read More Channel 4 Chan
On the Manchester attack, and where we go from here.Read More Manchester: A Line in the Sand
Don’t bother turning off the lights on the Eiffel Tower, or turning on the lights on the Brandenburg Gate, or lighting a candle and photographing it poignantly.
After the Islamist atrocity in Stockholm last week, does anybody still care about these overly familiar, increasingly mechanical routines? It looks like theatre now. Like a jaded actor sadly going through the motions. Projecting his lines, pitch perfect and with not a vowel out of place, but signifying absolutely nothing of consequence.
In response to last week’s terror attack in London, we saw a swift, strong, and efficiently targeted official response. It’s reassuring to know that our media and government are working in finely tuned coordination to protect us. The process has gone like clockwork, so let’s take a moment to reflect on how it works.Read More The Dumb Default
Brexiteers have copped a lot of abuse over the past few months for allegedly being swayed by emotion and ignorant of the facts. I no longer care about this palpably incorrect nonsense. The Brexiteers I know are sometimes almost obsessively well informed about the EU, in many cases far more so than the bovine whingers who plumped for Remain because the establishment told them to. (I know, I know, there are plenty of intelligent, democracy respecting Remainers too.)Read More Owen Jones And Mark Steel Are Deflecting Attention From Terror Attacks
I don’t know what to call them anymore. Progressives? Obviously not. Liberals? I sense no liberalism in their approach to dissent. Regressive left? Control left?
However you refer to them, the response of some parts of the left wing to yesterday’s horrific events in Berlin and Ankara was remarkable.
Try Labour MP Jess Phillips’ Twitter timeline. You’ll find that quite some effort has gone into attacking not Islamism, but instead Nigel Farage, due to his spat with Brendan Cox, the husband of murdered MP Jo Cox.
