    There is no Return from this Madness

    British universities are lost. There can be no return from this madness. Successive generations of students have been indoctrinated by Marxists with little or no challenge from Liberals, so it has come to this. Read The Gulag Archipelago by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn if you have the time. Read this briefer, but considered and detailed essay published by Index on Censorship a generation ago, coincidentally at the start of the final push by Lesbian and Gay activists for equal rights. Here’s an extract: On 23 May 1934, Pravda and Izvestiya published an article by Gorky declaiming, in language reminiscent of a political trial, that homosexuality was the result of pernicious influences from the Western bourgeoisie…

    Corbyn in 2015 – let British jihadis travel to Syria

    Jeremy Corbyn’s antisemitic record has been under scrutiny for several weeks now, and rightly so. But let’s not forget other issues which are important, starting with our own national security. He should never be entrusted with the security of the United Kingdom. It would be seriously endangered. Look back to early 2015. Islamic State was on the march. No wonder – its strength and confidence had been boosted by a big influx of foreign fighters from Europe. They included Britain’s very own “Jihadi John”, who began his beheading spree in 2014. Those fighters were a top priority for Western intelligence services, in large part because there were fears they could…

    Press TV’s Roshan Salih films no confidence vote against Joan Ryan

    The execrable Salih, editor of the Islamist site 5pillars, managed a near impossible feat earlier this year – he made Ken Livingstone appear almost measured.  Livingstone was invited on to Salih’s Press TV show – held on Holocaust Memorial Day – to discuss the question: ‘Has the Holocaust been exploited to oppress others?’. At one point Salih actually said: “I don’t know whether 6 million, or 4 million died or 2 million died.” Last night this vile character was invited into the Enfield CLP meeting which saw MP and LFI Chair Joan Ryan narrowly lose a vote of no confidence.  Here he filmed it for his employers, Press TV, banned…

    “TREASON?”

    As Donald Trump continues his descent into paranoid rage, and as one senior official of his administration says that he/she and others are helping to protect the nation from him, I do want to single out one area in which I’m somewhat in sympathy with the President, as revealed in Bob Woodward’s upcoming book. Donald Trump ordered his defence secretary to assassinate Syria’s president Bashar al-Assad and “kill the f****** lot of them” in the leader’s regime, in the wake of a chemical attack against civilians, according to a new book. Defence secretary James Mattis is said to have told the president during a phone call he would “get right…

    The Corbyn memorandum

    Benjamin felt a nose nuzzling at his shoulder. He looked round. It was Clover. Her old eyes looked dimmer than ever. Without saying anything, she tugged gently at his mane and led him round to the end of the big barn, where the Seven Commandments were written. For a minute or two they stood gazing at the tatted wall with its white lettering. “My sight is failing,” she said finally. “Even when I was young I could not have read what was written there. But it appears to me that that wall looks different. Are the Seven Commandments the same as they used to be, Benjamin?” Robert Peston reports that…

    David Duke: “Corbyn is right on Israel”

    Let’s cheer up poor old Jeremy Corbyn. On another tough day, he’s had a new endorsement! From none other than the notorious racist and former KKK leader David Duke. Eyeing wicked “Jewish power” plots, Duke says Corbyn stands out on the left and in his party: So the biggest issue of all, whether they raise somebody up to honour status, like Nelson Mandela, or, for that matter, a Bernie Sanders, or a leftist like Hillary Clinton, is whether or not they abide not only the state of Israel, they all do that, it seems like even the Labour party does in a sense defend Israel half the time, but they…

    Willsman – when and why did people vote for him?

    The typical response to those Labour NEC election results from more moderate Corbyn supporters is to point out that many Labour members got their votes in before news of Willsman’s rant was widely reported.  Clearly some Labour members were firmly JC8 but not JC9* – but just how many of the 70,000 or so who voted for him did so in ignorance of his views? I thought it would be interesting to put those discussing this issue on Twitter into different categories in an attempt to get a better sense of Labour supporters’ thoughts on the Willsman issue. What evidence is there that most of those who voted for him…

    QC says Israel created ‘to compensate for the Holocaust’

    This is a cross-post by Jonathan Hoffman It was at an event organised by the Palestine Return Centre in 2013 that Jeremy Corbyn suggested that Zionists “having lived in this country for a very long time, probably all their lives … don’t understand English irony”. I have never attended a PRC event where antisemitism has not run free. It was at a PRC event where Gerald Kaufman referred to ‘Jewish money‘ and at another where Jenny Tonge placed herself on the path to resignation/dismissal.  The former spokesman of the PRC, Sameh Habeeb, was dropped as a Labour council candidate earlier this year and suspended from the Party for alleged antisemitic remarks. Now…

    Tributes to John McCain

    “Cynicism is often the shamefaced product of inexperience.” –A.J. Liebling Here are the eulogies for Senator John McCain by his daughter Meghan and by former President Barack Obama: It’s hard to miss the not-so-oblique references to a certain man who was not invited to the memorial service at the National Cathedral in Washington. “We gather here to mourn the passing of American greatness,” [Meghan McCain] said, gritting her teeth through the tears. “The real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly, nor the opportunistic appropriation of those who lived lives of comfort and privilege while he suffered and served.” When…

    Corbynista Andrew Murray and Hezbollah

    It is easy to see why Andrew Murray has been welcomed to Jeremy Corbyn’s inner circle. He is a fanatical Israel hater. Consider a scene from London in July 2006, when Murray, Corbyn, far left agitators and Islamists marched to protest against Israel’s bid to defend itself against Hezbollah. Excited, Murray reads a message from Hezbollah to a cheering crowd. It is addressed to “our friends from around the world” from the “freedom fighters of Hezbollah”. Unity! Listen for yourself. Explicit support for Hezbollah was right out in the open at this demonstration. The poor old Socialist Party was somewhat disgruntled: However, left-wing leading members of the Stop the War…
