The MSM: Speaking Truth From Power

It's not 'technology' or 'unfair competition from fake news' that's killing the MSM. If you want to know the real reason why the MSM is dying, consider the latest scores for 'The Last Jedi' on Rotten Tomatoes:

Critics: 93%

Real people: 56%

Naturally, such a huge chasm between the MSM's collective opinion and actual, normal people has caused a lot of soul-searching amongst the folks in the media who like to claim they're the voice of the people.

No, not really!

Instead, they've doubled down. It's all a conspiracy I tells you!

It's probably those Macedonia content farmers again. There is no better proof of the bogus nature of the left's anti-establishment posturing than that we now have the MSM circling the wagons round a huge corporation. They're not standing up for the little guy, they're standing up to the little guy, slapping him about the chops shouting 'you will like this garbage'.

Yes, it's only a movie. On the other hand, it's only a movie, yet even here the MSM can't resist the temptation to push its deary, nihilistic agenda. If they're like this with a film, who could possibly trust them to deal honestly with serious issues?

Govt Minister Tests Positive For Banned Substance

Namely, testosterone.

Needless to say, the Usual Suspects have taken it calmly and rationally: 
But his comments have sparked a row after the former director of public prosecutions Lord MacDonald branded the remarks 'juvenile'.
Uh oh...I understand that if Gavin Williams doesn't withdraw his comments, His Lordship might escalate to calling him 'dreadfully suburban' or 'frightfully common'.

But it's not just lords calling out this guy. Nope, there's also a ladyship too. That's what counts as egalitarian in the modern Labour Party: nobles of both sexes (I guess we'll have to wait to hear from the other 72 genders).

Apparently, these comments are outrageously outrageous but the only people the MSM can find to denounce them have never been elected dog catcher. Meanwhile, people with the need for actual votes are strangely unavailable for comment.

That's why this is important. Obviously, a policy of killing the fox before it gets in the hen house is the right thing to do, and also a certain vote winner, but it also exposes the central myth of cuckservatism. We're told that professional conservatives have to pander to freaks like Shameless Shami for the sake of electability but when a conservative finally tells these people to shove it, Labour MPs suddenly remember they've left the gas on at home. The extreme position turns out to be the one that no one who wants to be elected will argue against.

Mel Brooks On Brexit

I knew Theresa May's Brexit (non)negotiating strategy seemed familiar:


It can only be a matter of time before she's seen in 10 Downing Street shouting 'Oh, lo'dy, lo'd, Barnier's desp'it! Do what he sayyyy, do what he sayyyy!'

MSM: Who You Gonna Believe, Us Or Your Lying Eyes?

The MSM is outrageously outraged that President Trump retweeted a 'far right group's videos'- which turned out not to be a 'far right group's videos' in the sense of anyone on the far right making a video, but instead that a member of the far right pointed out other people's videos of things that have happened. Or, as we Earthlings call it, 'reporting'.

Literally, that's it. The (mostly mythical) 'far right' - and by extrapolation the President - are being accused by the MSM of passing on footage of stuff that actually happened. Let that sink in.

What does that say about the world view of the modern journalist? They're so deep in the tank that they can't even see that they're admitting they believe in censoring stories that don't support the narrative. Hence why we have absurd circumlocutions like this:
A spokesperson from the Dutch Public Prosecution Service told the BBC that the person arrested for the attaack "was born and raised in the Netherlands" and was not a migrant, as claimed in the social media post.
So does this 'person' have a name? And was he 'born and raised in the Netherlands' like the 7/7 bombers were born and raised in Britain? More to the point, note that the same MSM that is fascinated about where the President's tweets come from has no interest in reporting on the background of a violent thug. They're not speaking truth to power, they're speaking truth from power. Now shut up and drink the kool aid!

The Rehab Industry Has A Titanic Moment

Actually, that's unfair. The Titanic only hit the one iceberg, but John Venables is the gift that keeps on giving. Also: offending.

Lest we forget, this case was meant to be the flagship of the rehab industry. Hence the blank cheque:
The killer's new identity is protected by a lifelong anonymity order and has been changed four times since his release in 2001, costing taxpayers £250,000 each time, and around £5million in total has been spent trying to rehabilitate him.
Also worth noting: this guy was specifically released early so he wouldn't have to face the trauma of an adult jail. It would have set back his progress, apparently, and so he would never have become the model citizen he is today. Not only did no one in the rehab industry blow the whistle, they actually came out with stuff like this:
In fact, a report by famed psychiatrist Sir Michael Rutter release said Venables posed a 'trivial risk' to the public should he be released.
Don't send that guy to buy your lottery ticket!

Apparently, the rehab industry is based on science, just not the type of science that produces actual, reproducible results. See, this is why taking on the rehab industry is a key issue for the right. Not only because it's the right thing to do - though it is - or because it's a winning issue politically - though that's true too - it's because it's the Rosetta Stone of the left.

The fact that every time normal people get to peek behind the curtain of the rehab industry we see something that looks like Scientology, but without Tom Cruise or the high moral standards, isn't a problem for the left, it's the whole attraction. It just proves that only the truly sophisticated can understand the genius inherent in a toxic mess of Marxism, new age psychobabble and outright fraud. 

To borrow a line from Douglas Adams, for modern leftists supporting the rehab industry is an opinion held by all right-thinking people, who are largely recognizable as being right-thinking because they support the rehab industry. People who think Jean Piaget was a painter nevertheless are quite certain that the rehab industry is based on solid science. No, they can't actually explain how rehabilitation is meant to work or what techniques are used, but they're sure that anyone who says things like 'you can't rewire evil' is clearly some kind of dummy dumb-dumb low-life who probably voted leave. 

A vote of thanks too for the libertarian movement.  The State Is Not Your Friend... except if it wants  to move the Sunderland Slayer in next door to a young family, in which case a blank cheque and a complete lack of transparency is A-OK with these Neo wannabees. 

Hey, it's either that or risk their membership of the Smart Set. Ditto, with sword, oak leaves and gold cluster, Cuckservatives terrified someone might call them a suburban prole who Just Doesn't Get It. 

And that's how drivel took over the justice system!

The point is that on this issue, as on so many others,  the drooling masses of tabloid-readers, Ford owners, semi-detached dwellers and football watchers were....completely right. And the Julian D'Arcy Snivellington-Snides were wrong to the max. It was the Smartest People in the Room who fell for the retarded child of Karl Marx and Carmen Batmanghelidj and they can't quit even now
. The whole basis of the modern left is a bogus claim to intellectual superiority in the face of all the evidence.

Enough with the Conservative Cringe, we were right, we are right, and all the left has left is sniffy denial.

Social Justice Vs Real Justice: Choose One

For those few still wondering if things are really that bad in the Nu Police, consider events in just one force area, with these few links via Julia...

Yep, it's hard to have that much sympathy for this guy, but what's with this...
Sussex Police do not investigate such cases of fraud unless they class the victim as vulnerable.
Instead, they refer them to Action Fraud, which happened in this incident. 
Wait, what?  I mean, I know these guys are well paid, but I'm not sure Joe Public exactly considers robbing £32,000 to be petty crime

But let's cut them some slack. There's them there Tori Cutz! Plus the Internet is the Wild West de nos jours. How can we expect law enforcement to pour resources down the black hole of the online world?


Yep, plenty of resources to track down anyone who says 'Jehovah' apparently. It's not the cuts, they've made a choice to prioritise waging culture war over dullsville crimes with actual victims.

But I know what you're thinking! What if someone stole £32,000 off someone and called them a fag? Would they investigate then?

The answer's yes, but not if the victim's conservative. Ask Milo Yiannopoulos or Anne Marie Waters for proof of that.

The problem with all this is not just that replacing Dixon of Dock Green with Doxon of Dick Dream means there's no one left to do actual policing, or even that it allows girly hysterics like PC Princess to persecute the non-insane. The problem is that once any organisation has been fully captured by SJWs, the actual business of that organisation becomes a distant second to the need to push their own loony views.

Consider this:
POLICE knew that Robert Trigg had been present when two of his girlfriends mysteriously died in their sleep. At least two Sussex Police officers dealt with the deaths of both Caroline Devlin on 2006 and Susan Nicholson in 2011 but he was not suspected of killing the women for another five years, Lewes Crown Court heard.
Hey, who knows? He might be a criminal genius and a superb actor. I'm sure the police have nothing to hide...
Trigg’s trial over the two women’s deaths heard police investigators’ notebooks were no longer available and a video of Trigg’s first interview with police had also gone missing.
'Missing' in the normal people sense, or 'missing' in the Hillsborough sense? Actually, which would be worse? Absent corruption, we're dealing with a police service that can't manage to file things properly even when there's a suspicious death involved.

That's what happens when the SJWs take over. The requirement to believe the obviously ludicrous - like, say, that stealing £32,000 is petty crime but calling people 'fags' is super serious - is demoralising in both senses of the word. Who has the time to do real work when they have to keep up with the ever-changing list of things that must be either hysterically denounced, or fanatically defended? And so previously sane organisations start to resemble cults, complete with heretics, saints and martyrs.

Rubbing Our Noses In It

Nope, despite all reasonable suspicions to the contrary, the police haven't lost the plot. They know exactly what they're doing. They're doing the same thing as the bully in the old Charles Atlas adverts did,  kicking sand into the face of the public, or at least the conservative part of it.

The fact that the police feel free to demonstrate their contempt for half the country is a big deal, and all the more so when we have a nominally-conservative government. Who cares who's in Number 10 if every time you have to deal with actual public servants, they're a bunch of Milli Tant loons? To quote the great Mark Steyn, who needs a President For Life when you have a Bureaucracy For Life?

Equally, though, consider the position of the Amber Rudd wing of the Tory Party. These people - supposedly the smart ones - assure us that the conservative party can't do anything to drain the swamp. They claim the whole 'culture war' thing is very 80s and now conservatives just have to go along to get along...and that's how they romped to a landslide election win against Hobo Stalin!

Meanwhile, is there anyone who works more than five miles from Westminister who doesn't think kicking PC Nailpolish back out onto the streets would be a vote winner? To put it the other way: who exactly is this guy who is going to vote Tory but only as long as they make cops walk round in high heels? Someone track this guy down!

'Troll' Means Nothing

At this point, surely everyone on the right now knows that a troll is just someone winning an argument with a liberal. This is why when the MSM reports a trolling atrocity story they never quite get round to covering what it is today's baby seal said to draw fire in the first place.

Consider this latest example. Nope, she wasn't 'asserting the ethnic diversity of Roman Britain', she was supporting the open borders obsessed BBC's ludicrous attempts to rewrite history by claiming that the father of a 'typical family' in Roman Britain would be black (as summerised in this YouTube video).

Now you see what the MSM is so reluctant to tell what she actually said! It doesn't get any better on closer inspection. Her evidence for Roman Britain looking like Brixton was that there was a Roman Governor who was born in Algeria. That's her 'typical family' - the Emperor's representative in Britain. That's like claiming the Pope is a typical Catholic priest, and never mind that Algerians aren't now, and certainly weren't then, black, or that, by the same reasoning, Cliff Richard, Rudyard Kipling, Joanne Lumley and thousands of other children of the Raj would be 'typical Indians'.

And then there's the point Nassim Nicholas Taleb made. As befits a genuine genius (rather than a phoney-baloney beneficiary of the left's Witless Protection Program), he asked the key question: if Roman Britons really did look like the cast of Zulu, what happened to the descendants of all these people? No matter what happened in the intervening period, there should be some trace of their DNA in Britain, and there just isn't.

This isn't a matter for debate. With the state of modern DNA science, you may as well claim that fossils are just random rock formations, but the same liberals who sneer at creationists, will seriously claim that mass mutation has somehow robbed millions of Britons of their ancestral DNA (and, what's more, somehow substituted it with that of other ethnic groups).

If anyone is a troll, it would be the fraudy-pants wacademic unleashing a mob of liberal lackwits on anyone who questions her junk history... especially when even the BBC has started to back away from its ludicrous claims.

The New Left Is The Old Right

Good news everyone! The police have finally found a guy on Twitter they *don't* want to arrest. Apparently, sanity is slowly returning to British policing... unless there's something I'm missing?

Lest we forget, just three months ago, in the self-same force area,  there was this. Satirising a terrorist - who was apparently 'not a real Muslim' anyway - gets you the Apocalypse Now treatment, while frank support for racist violence is just a mild eccentricity, apparently.

I know what you're thinking: what if you wanted to split the difference and sing a song making fun of the rioters? Forget it: SJWs will let people try and gin up a riot with deranged conspiracy theories about police death squads, but they'll move like a shot to silence their critics.

They don't want equality, they want a new class system.

It's Different When They Do It

The BBC is still struggling with the blowback after revelations over a so-called ‘gender pay gap’ in its wage structure. Personally, I think they’ve been harshly treated: whatever the difference in men & women’s earnings, at least pay rates were equal across the other 47 genders, so you know…

But this does raise the deeper point: the BBC has spent years claiming that any difference in pay or conditions between men and women, or black and white for that matter, can only be the result of bigotry, and furthermore anyone who disagrees is a huge Bigoty McBigot. Hence, why even rinky-dink little firms in Nowhereshire trying to recruit a night watchman need to put in a place a bloated formal process to prove their innocence, just in case some treasure hunting weasel trys it on.

Meanwhile, it turns out that liberals are recruiting each other for top jobs over lunch at the Groucho Club, more or less, and that’s just the way it is. Take Gary Lineker: he’s given the thick end of £2 million a year but they can’t tell you who else was considered for the job, who decided to hire him or what performance metrics he needs to achieve to get his contract renewed.

No wonder liberals are obsessed with the idea that the country is full of old school tie wearing Ruperts and Sebastians giving each other top jobs. Like the Third Law says, liberals always project.

Crocodile Feeding Expedition Ends Much As Expected

This sounds awful!

They should write to their MPs.

Hey, I'd be more sympathetic, but the clue is in the question: if MPs can be victimised with impunity, what does that say about how less well-connected people on the right are likely to be treated by law enforcement, or the likely career prospects of openly conservative police officers?

It's the same in the rest of the public sector. As it happens, there are 316 Conservative MPs right now, so that's about 300 more than there are conservative professors in the whole of academia. How about schools? Even the Guardian (!) is worried they're too much of a monoculture. And so on.

Enough with the sob sister stuff, what do they want to do to actually drain the swamp?

Ah yes, that is the root of the problem. If Theresa May is known for anything at all - aside from blowing dead cert elections - it's her stupid 'nasty party' speech in which she threw the conservative base under the bus, parroting every libel the left has ever come up with against grass roots conservatives. The Nu Tories have spent years giving a winking, smirking endorsement to violence against supposed right-wing extremists. I mean, they're Literally Hitler anyway, right?

All that's changed now is that the chickens have come home to roost. The Tories forget the one iron rule of politics: a Nazi is just a conservative winning an argument with a liberal.

Liberals Always Push It Too Far

The Mighty Ann Coulter reports on last Friday's shootings in a New York hospital and you'll be shocked to hear just why the MSM told us more about the gun used than the actual killer.

Of course, when I say 'shocked' I mean for certain values of 'shocked', obviously. Clue Number Two was the absence of pretentious MSM think pieces about what these shootings say about Trump's America. Or, indeed, any reporting at all after the first six hours.

You need to read Ann to find out what's really going on:
There are mental illness shootings, gangland shootings, still-angry-about-the-divorce shootings and so on. Some immigrant murderers are mentally ill or criminals -- thanks to our excellent and extremely rigorous vetting system! But there are enough like Mr. Obotetukudo to qualify as their own category: the Disappointed Immigrant mass shootings.
The usual elements are: 1) immigrants from wildly different cultures, who have 2) unrealistic expectations about what their lives should be like in the U.S., combined with 3) an inability to achieve success in the U.S., and 4) a failure to grasp our customs -- often, even our language, typically marked by 5) a particular rage at women.
The same way girls from the Midwest come to New York City expecting to live like Carrie Bradshaw in "Sex and the City" (she was paying $700 a month for a $2,700 per month apartment, plus $40,000 on shoes), some immigrants seem to expect their lives in the U.S. to be like something out of "Dynasty."
And if all that is starting to sound a little familiar, here's the next line:
Bello, for example, declared bankruptcy in 2000 -- from one of the priciest towns in the world, Santa Barbara, California.
Zut alors! An entitled immigrant who believes it's his right to live in some of the world's priciest property, despite being completely incapable of paying for it himself? Who'd believe such a thing?

Expect the BBC to run a sob sister documentary on this guy in the next few months. 

Meanwhile, closer to home, the left has been so convinced that the Grenfell residents are the baby seals to end all baby seals, that they've lost all contact with reality. The left has managed to throw away any political capital they might have gained by filling the airwaves 24/7 with illegal immigrants raging in broken English about how angry they are that they might have to move to Camden or Hackney.

The Only Rule Liberals Ever Recognise Is 'Who? Whom?'

Julia brings us up to the speed on the left's ongoing search for Baby Seals.

Disappointingly, it appears that St Edson, the martyr of Newham, had a number of packages in his throat when he died, and not in an Elton John kind of way (no doubt, the Guardian is planning to print a retraction any time now).

Still, as one door closes, another fire door opens and noted pyrotechnic expert David Lammy is going through Grenfell Towers conspiracy theories like Henry VIII went through wives.

Or maybe that was his successor, Henry VII?

Who knows? Not Dave, that's for sure! But you should totally trust him when he talks about burning times, flashover points and other things he saw on CSI Miami. 

Still, that leaves open the wider point: Dave's meta conspiracy theory, his Protocols of the Learned Elders of the Tory Party, as it were, is that the Government is lying about the death toll to prevent a riot.

Never mind the absurdity of the charge, just think about the humbuggery of it. The left just got through claiming that you're not allowed to say our border security does a worse job than David Lammy's history teacher, otherwise you might make someone run over Muslims a year later, but now they're claiming to be outrageously outraged that the Government is supposedly withholding information to try and avoid a riot.

Hey, there's nothing theoretical about mob violence around Grenfell, but the same people who create Kennedy Assassination theories to explain why Nigel Farage should never be allowed to speak in public again are suddenly reborn as flinty crusaders for the public's right to know, and damn the torpedoes!

Technically, They Did Say They Were Against Inflammatory Rhetoric......

...They didn't say anything about inflamma-laboury rhetoric.

Apparently, Nigel Farage, Katie Hopkins and the Daily Mail are all responsible for some tool going crazy with his van, but the Guardian is just practicing responsible journalism when it comes out with stuff like this:
The family of a man who died following his arrest in London last week have demanded answers after the police watchdog said a postmortem contradicted their claim that he suffered a series of severe injuries.
So the evidence proves that they're lying liars, who lied, but the Guardian still makes them out to be concerned seekers after justice?


It's not even as if the left can claim not to understand the implications of what they're doing:
The watchdog said it was releasing those details because it was concerned about the “rapid spread of false and potentially inflammatory information” online about Da Costa’s condition.
I'd say we passed 'potentially inflammatory' sometime ago....

Then again, you can't say there isn't an element of poetic justice here: while the Guardian is trying to whip up an anti-police mob with phony baloney atrocity stories, the Filth themselves know who the real enemy is: losers on Facebook.

So Now We Know Who Clicks On Those 'Get Ripped In 6 Weeks' Ads On YouTube...

I'm sensing a real frustration amongst Respectable Conservatives right about now. They're wondering how Jeremy Corbyn can still be in the race with all his baggage. If you are one of those guys, I have some good news: I can show you how to find one of the guilty parties right now. Just go into your bathroom and look at the mirror. There he is!

They're wondering how people can vote for an out and proud Marxist. Well, why not? What does the average person know about the Holodomor, the Great Leap Forward or the Year Zero? Nada. Not only have Respectable Conservatives allowed the left to whitewash their role in 100 million deaths, some of them have even tried to score extra Respectable points by joining the left in dismissing critics of Marxism as a bunch of paranoid hicks stuck in 1985.

Ditto, on terrorism. Yes, Corbyn's record has been despicable, but the Tories aren't much better. Apparently, Labour wants to hire 20,000 police officers to track down people who appear on national TV talking about jihad. But what can the Tories really say? We've had three terror attacks one after the other, all involving 'known wolves', but the police know who the real enemy are.

Respectable Conservatives are shocked that a guy who clearly hates Britain could be elected PM, but they've been as guilty as anyone in creating a culture where joining a hostile foreign army is just an alternative lifestyle choice. Say what you like about Corbyn, he only supports ISIS, he didn't actually join them. Meanwhile, actual ISIS members are welcomed back into the country and given directions to the 'all you can eat' welfare buffet.

To the point: being a Professional Conservative must be the best paid job in the world, at least in terms of the hourly rate. These guys are in hibernation most of the time, then they wake up each election campaign and complain that they have trouble making headway in a culture that the left spends 365 days a year poisoning.

Throwing Acid In The Public's Face

Yes, they do hate us, and have done so for a long time.

It goes back at least as far as the 1987 general election, when Neil Kinnock whined that you couldn't tell a working man earning good money, with his own house, a new car and a villa in Spain 'Brother, let me take you out of your misery'.

The left  love the downtrodden masses providing they stay trodden down. Once they start making a bit of money and getting ideas above their station all bets are off. Consider the reaction to Brexit for final proof of that.

You can't even put it down to self-interest or snobbery. It's something much more primal than that. For the left not only is the personal always political, but vice versa too. Never mind Clement Attlee or Nye Bevan, the perfect poster boy for the modern left is Elliot Rogers.

Too far fetched? Consider the left's response to Rotherham. Here are a group of people who've spent years producing saccharine drivel about life oop North, while also giving house room to feminazis ranting about how rape culture is, like, everywhere, sista. But as soon as they ran into an actual rape culture, on the loose in Brassed Off territory....

Suddenly, it turned out rape wasn't about power after all. Feminists all but queued up to explain how the victims were practically asking for it, the sluts. Large parts of the left seemed to positively relish the idea of young girls being sexually tortured and humiliated. Their reaction was like nothing so much as a frustrated stalker enjoying the suffering of the woman who rejected him.  

See, we were meant to be together, them as ruler, us as the ruled. They could have been so good for us, but us people, us whores, had to go off with those Tory bad boys, with their fancy 'home ownership' and 'personal responsibility'. Well, they're going to teach us a lesson alright, THEY'RE NOT GOING TO BE IGNORED.

The open borders lobby is a bunch of losers throwing acid in the public's face by proxy - sometimes literally.

Nonce In A Lifetime!

It's finally happened: after years of the 'Respectable Right' penning 7,000 words articles about how they, like, totally deplore paedophiles (but they don't support taking any action whatsoever against actual predators), they've finally found the one case that does call for the bombers to be launched. In fact, it's so serious even the left has decided that it's time to give war a chance.

Our respectable brethren are enraged that Milo Yiannopoulos was able to abduct and murder a series of teenage runaways...

No, wait: that's not right. It's even worse than that - brace yourself, grandma - he's accused of saying pro-paedophile things across a series of interviews.

Which is clue number one right there. The usual suspects are back to the 'ransom note' method, as in daisy chaining a number of different quotes from different interviews together to try and prove the target is an extreme extremist, just like making a ransom note by cutting letters out of the newspaper. All that need be said about that technique is that if this cut and paste method is so fair, these guys won't mind if we apply it to real paedophiles in court, right? Talking of which, it looks like the rule now is that we can parse out the meaning of every statement ever made by a comedian/journalist, but we have to take Supreme Court decisions at face value, or you hate the rule of law.

Then again, close up analysis doesn't really help the case against Milo. As far as I can see, right now, there are two main issues, and they're both stupid. First up, Milo is accused of trivialising child abuse in the way he talks about his *own* molestation.

 Think about that. That's how arrogant these people are: they want to tell a victim of sexual abuse how he's allowed to feel about it (Meanwhile, suggesting women shouldn't get wasted then walk alone through the town center at 4 AM is victim blaming, you pig)!

The other, slightly less stupid, charge is that he sorta of, kind of, suggested the age of consent should be lowered, even though he clearly said it was 'about right'. It all depends how you interpret quotes like this:
The positive nature of some child-adult sexual relationships is not confined to non-Western cultures. Several of my friends – gay and straight, male and female – had sex with adults from the ages of nine to 13. None feel they were abused. All say it was their conscious choice and gave them great joy. While it may be impossible to condone paedophilia, it is time society acknowledged the truth that not all sex involving children is unwanted, abusive and harmful.
No, wait: that was actually alleged National Treasure Peter Tatchell who said that, and a lot more besides. Tatchell has come out with this sort of thing for years, and in cold blood too, in actual, written articles, not while pushing an edgy personae on someone's live stream. He's campaigned for it too, just like Harriet Harman, Patricia Hewitt and Jack Dromney, actual MPs with real power, and luvvie favorite campaign group Liberty too. 

Hmmmmmm... you know, you could ask if any of this gave as much aid and comfort to the predators as Milo did with his jokes about his own molestation?

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that all of the above cases will turn out to be completely different, you lager-sodden, tabloid reading piece of trash. You just don't get the nuance, you stupid prole.

See, that's the thing. They think this is a win for them. They think we're too stupid to see what's going on. The same views can be either outrageous or courageous depending on who holds them.  This double standard between insiders and real people is exactly why the real right exists.

The Cringe Is Over

The best thing about Brexit & Trump is that it has deprived the left of their favourite weapon: the argument that liberalism is the default setting of modern life and only a few cray-cray extremists could possibly be against it. Now, for the first time in years, the left is having to make actual arguments, and it's going about as well as you'd expect. Consider Exhibit A: Red Princess Lilly Allen.

Incidentally, the comparison to royalty is exactly right. Lilly is the daughter of alt comedy luvvie Keith Allen, step daughter of Harry Enfield, and mum's a film producer. Add in the fancy private education and she makes Prince Harry look like a self-made man.

All of which is by way of saying that as easy as it is to mock silly Lilly and friends, we should never forget that the supposed Super Genii in the 'Respectable Right' have spent years telling us that we need to go along to get along with these fools. Allegedly brilliant policy wonks sneered at the bumpkins in the conservative base, telling us we needed to get with the program and triangulate away our principles. Now it turns out that globalisation is inevitable except when it isn't. The Ford driving morons in the suburbs were right and the smart set were wrong. About everything.

As ever, I ask: just what definition of 'genius' are we using here?

If It Wasn't For Double Standards, Liberals Would Have No Standards At All...

The Guardian carries an article from a liberal sulking about Milo's massive one.

I mean his advance, you weirdos.

They want to give his publisher the whole 'nice company you got 'ere, be a shame if something 'appened to it' treatment, but they seem kind of vague on who exactly Milo is:
During Yiannopoulos’s tenure at Breitbart – where he’s told gay people to “get back in the closet” and women to “log off” the internet – he has amassed more than 1 million followers on Facebook.
Yes, if there's one thing Milo stands for, it's opposition to flaming homos. At this point, you can't help but feel a strange respect for the honesty of celebrity weirdo Perez Hilton who filed his story about Milo under the label 'icky icky poo'. At least he didn't even pretend to have a point (other than 'I hate the right'). Meanwhile, the left's Brains Trust has to resort to arguments like this:
Why? Because rhetoric like his – which targets racial, religious and cultural minorities – invites discrimination. It arguably encourages people such as Omar Mateen and Dylann Roof to think of entire groups of people as less than human.
Yes, indeed. The right must be silenced otherwise they might encourage somebody, somewhere to do something at some point in the future. Just on first principles, it seems a little broad.... even if you don't think that some other book might have been a little more directly involved in motivating Omar Mateen to shoot up a gay club. But the humbuggery is even more blatant than that.

On the very same day as the Milo post, the Guardian ran with a softball interview with the father of the left's latest baby seal, Mohammed Yaqub.

Yep, this guy.  Needless to say, very little of the Mail's background material makes it in to the interview. Instead we get stuff like this:
The grieving father of a man who was fatally shot by police in West Yorkshire has said his family are heartbroken and questioned whether armed officers planned to “assassinate” his son.
So for those of you keeping score at home, calling Leslie Jones 'barely literate' and Melissa McCarthy 'fat' and 'ugly' - also known in Saneville as 'reporting stuff' - is inflammatory, but pushing insane conspiracy theories gets you the soft soap treatment at the Guardian.

It's not like they distance themselves from this nutcase either. Au contrair, they refer to him as 'a well-known and respected businessman' even after he's given up on all but the most perfunctory attempt at plausible deniability thing:
He said: “Look at the case in London, [Mark] Duggan – look how many protests they had to take to get answers. If it’s a peaceful protest there’s nothing wrong with that, as long as it’s peaceful.”
Except they weren't peaceful then and aren't now, so y'know... it turns out that the same paper that wants to prevent the right from writing about terrible movies on the grounds that their reviews may provoke mass murder has no problem giving house room to deranged conspiracy theories and barely disguised calls for mob violence.
