News Thread Attempt 394

Ok, abandoning the sarcasm, my points are:

1. There is nothing morally righteous whatsoever about the leftist protesters, lobby groups, liberal media etc against Trump, Brexit, misogyny or whoever hasn't been PC enough of late. They quite clearly don't give a monkey's about identical behaviour in other directions and pick and choose they're targets based on their own prejudices. Zero consistency and zero credibility.

2. I don't feel the need to make a sign and start chanting in the centre of London because some pathetic Welsh d*** with a massive chip on his shoulder wants to make an anti-England advert. He's the last of many millions of Celts before him and the first of many millions more to come with the same chronic inferiority complex. Who cares. So equally I don't want to listen to a bunch of cry baby's having a hissy fit because Donald Trump is gonna meet the queen at some point.

The left constantly go about division in modern politics. Maybe if there was a bit less all action no brains and a bit more respecting democracy then there'd be a lot less division.

Regarding point 1 to give it a non-political slant - are you only able to criticise Venkys if you have been on every protest, and spend your time tweeting about Oyston,  Charlton Etc?  Does it make it wrong to only be concerned about Venkys?

Re the Welsh thing, I don't really know what you are on about. But if the Taffies want to make some anti-English stuff, that's up to them. I take the Mick out of my Dingle FD, he shows me the league table - who's worse? Probably the first person to take it seriously.

Remains of Makeshift Cuban Raft Wash Ashore in Ireland

By: Karina Martín - Feb 9, 2017, 11:49 am

The boat was discovered by Gordon Fillis out walking with their dogs on Cliffoney Beach, Ireland.

They noted that the boat “was very homemade and improvised, had a car engine and water bottles to keep it afloat.”

It turned out to be a boat from Cuba, washed ashore after a failed attempt to get to the United States.

The occupants of the boat were most likely intercepted and the boat was left adrift. (la voz de galicia)

The article referred to at the bottom of the page about California is just as fascinating.

Sweden's "feminist" government cowers submissively towards Iran's phenomenally sexist law that women can't show their hair. Real tough ladies when it comes to taking the mickey out of Trump, total cowards when it comes to standing up to Islam. Everything you need to know about modern feminists in one news article.

Well done to the BBC for publishing a story criticising the fascist Iranian state. Now will it publish similar stories criticising the right wing British state? Seeing as the BBC Trust is cahoots with May's hard right government it's highly unlikely.

How many of these luvvies are protesting about that poor woman in Indonesia, being beaten to a pulp by a masked (naturally) man under Sharia ?

Lily Allen and JK Rowling awfully quiet, but not when railing against Donald Trump.

Indeed. Gets less and less possible to hide the enormous double standards and sooner or later you'd think they've at least got to make up some excuses why. Might be a bit longer after that when we get the actual truth, not scared of Trump but scared of conservative Islam. Because, spoiler alert, Trump isn't as bad.

It's not about feminism.  Feminism is merely a tool to advance international socialism.  The second it doesn't serve that purpose it is discarded.

Wow.  A masterful rebuttal.  Not.  Are you really so simple minded?

My response- Silence in regards to Bill Clinton's harassment and/or rapes.  Silence in regards to institutionalized Islamic harassment and/or rapes.  In short, silence so long as the cause of no borders, pro-progressive ideology is being advanced.

Here's a brief summary.  http://canadafreepress.com/article/first-world-feminists-ignore-third-world-rapists#

Off again. The most racist woman in politics is playing the race/gender card. And after the Guardian run it, the BBC lap it up like an impressionable younger sibling. 

Funny how they don't care at all when Nigel Farage is getting physically attacked but Abbott gets some verbal abuse and let's waffle on about women in politics shall we.

Unfortunately protesting against sexist Islam doesn't sell books or songs.

I heard Lily still hasn't taken any 35 year old refugee babies into her mansion. Normal behaviour from the hypocritical detestable attention seekers.

I find this post very odd. All feminists (and women) I know are utterly opposed to FGM and violence whether it happens in the the west or abroad?

I am unsure what your point is? How does the word feminism advance international socialism?  Feminism is defined simply as the advocacy that women have the same rights as men. Why would you seek to deny that?

Criticise groups, organisations and individuals all you want, but to undermine a word that means equality is a terrible thing to do, and something which will have a profoundly negative impact on the women in your life - particularly young ones.

Apologies the overwhelming impression I have is short snappy replies are de rigeur with the right. It's certainly the case on here.

As for insulting me well that appears to be fashionable as well both on the political right and the other side of the Atlantic. 

I can't read the Canadian link as I'm not prepared to hand over my email address.  As for the American one all I can say is in my experience all media forms and every woman I know would and does object in the strongest possible terms to things such as FGM, terrorism, rape, racial or religious prejudice.

Feminism though is not solely about what you originally stated as any modern thinking man will know and has experienced over the past 40 years or more. Those who do not or cannnot recognise this possibly don't afford women the value and respect they deserve.

If you require evidence of UK media in relation to this and all aspects of feminism I would recommend downloading, as a start, the numerous editons of Women's Hour on Radio 4 iPlayer.

Personally I'm both proud and delighted to count many "right on" women as friends. Women who are at the very least my equal and often my superior in many ways. Very often I'll chose to spend my time with strong minded, liberal feminists in preference to male company. Just like this afternoon when a lady friend is going to kick my arse on a bike for 50+ miles. These ladies are a joy to be with.

It's living in the modern world and what a privilege this is.

Women are superior to men imo. The crap they have to go through to be recognised as equals is ridiculous.

The concept of 'meninism' is baffling to me. Yes there are many inequalities that affect men (suicides, homelessness, custody of children etc), but feminism is equally about ridding the world of THOSE inequalities too. Egalitarianism and feminism are one and the same.

The biggest problem about tackling inequality by identifying with a group is that it actually accentuates the division. Inequality affects people on an individual basis: women aren't equal with other women, men aren't equal with other men.  We don't benefit on a personal level because someone the same gender as us is in a privileged position in life.
