Atlanta’s Transit System Changes ‘Yellow Line’ to ‘Gold’ After Asian Outrage



batbatbatbatbat



Outrage? WTF, are these folks taking lessons from the muzzies now?

Atlanta’s transit system will rename a train route into the heart of the city’s Asian community in response to complaints that calling it the “yellow line” showed a lack of racial sensitivity.

The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority issued a statement Thursday afternoon announcing it would change the name of the line to the “gold line.”

“The expressed concerns regarding the use of the phrase ‘yellow line’ will be addressed in the most expeditious and cost-effective manner possible,” MARTA officials said in the statement.

The move to change the name to “gold” coincides with the demands of some advocates in the Asian community.

“Our thought is, why don’t you change it to gold? It’s really more of a ‘why not?’ question. Why not change it?” said Helen Kim, director of advocacy and education at the nonprofit Pan Asian Center for Community Services.

Naming it the “yellow line” was part of MARTA’s color-coding the entire transit systems by using primary colors.

“There was absolutely no intent to confer any negative connotation through the use of any of the colors chosen,” the statement released Thursday said.

MARTA also has a red line, a green line and a blue line. Several other cities — including San Francisco, Tokyo and Washington — utilize yellow within their color-coded systems.

...

“It’s not a term, it’s a color,” said Darcy Olsen, president and CEO of the Goldwater Institute, a conservative think tank based in Phoenix, “Should we outlaw yellow jackets, yellow traffic lights? How about the white nights of summer solstice? This is manufactured offense when clearly no offense is intended.”

Hey I know, let’s just deport all the Asians in Atlanta, and then there won’t be any left to get all offended. I wonder if any of them are actually legal immigrants to begin with. [/snark] Geez Luise, some people are some uppity little bitches aren’t they? Next thing we’ll have Jesse and Al picketing because there isn’t a brown line. And if MARTA puts one in, they’ll be sued for racism if that route goes past a single black neighborhood. Get a fuckin life already you losers.

How Do You Say “Kangaroo Court” in Dutch?

We’ve covered this outspoken critic of islam before but at the moment, things not going that well for our side.  Seems the very PC Dutch ar quite happy to gag one of their own ELECTED politicians and give their country away to the islamists.  If that’s really the case, what the heck did they fight the Germans for?
Nothing I have read on the subject and I confess I haven’t read everything, indicates that the Dutch are very happy with events there. Unfortunately for them, their country is in the hands of the left.  They are concerned about immigration and they are worried about militant islam. In fact, many are just plain bothered about islam period, militant or not.  Some have “quietly” said it has no place in their culture. I think the Dutch who said that have already moved out.

So anyway ... Geert Wilders is on trial.  More like the Inquisition minus the burning then a trial. But you guys MUST read this to get a feel for how scary this actually is.  Especially from muslim authorities. 

H/T TUNDRA TABLOID
The Amsterdam District Court apparently doesn’t want to hear the truth about Islam. Nor is it interested to hear the opinion of top class legal experts in the field of freedom of expression. In one swift move, the Court brushed aside fifteen of the eighteen expert-witnesses the defence had requested to be summoned.

Only Hans Jansen, Simon Admiraal and Wafa Sultan were allowed to be heard as expert-witnesses. Their testimony will be heard in a session behind closed doors. Apparently the truth about Islam must remain a secret.

Geert Wilders: “This Court is not interested in the truth. This Court doesn’t want me to have a fair trial. I can’t have any respect for this. This Court would not be out of place in a dictatorship”.
The Court also brushed aside the preliminary objections concerning its jurisdiction and the admissibility of the Public Prosecutor.

Nevertheless, Geert Wilders remains extremely motivated to seek justice: “I’m still counting on an acquittal”.

TUNDRA TABLOID

THERE IS THIS FROM THE GATES OF VIENNA BLOG AND I ENCOURAGE ALL WHO HAVEN’T READ IT TO GO OVER THERE AND DO SO.
It isn’t a short read.

It’s obvious that the Dutch government wants Geert Wilders out of the way, and doesn’t much care how it happens.

In bygone days the Queen might have murmured to herself, “Who will rid me of this troublesome blond?” And then, to please his monarch, some eager courtier would have dispatched Mr. Wilders to meet his maker.

But today’s tactics have to be different. First the government demonizes the head of the PVV, eroding his official legitimacy and making it seem as if he almost deserves a violent end. Then it puts him on trial on trumped-up charges, and declines to provide the same courtroom security for a member of parliament that it gives to Islamic terrorists.

How Do You Say “Kangaroo Court” in Dutch?

International Free Press Society 4 February 2010
By Diana West

INTL. FREE PRESS

Even if you have never been involved in a criminal prosecution wherein your very freedom is at risk, I want you to now imagine that you and your attorney have prepared a defense that includes a list of witnesses that will provide a mountain of exculpatory evidence.  Then, imagine that the Court summarily and arbitrarily decides that it will not listen to nearly ninety percent of your case.

“This court is apparently not interested in the truth.” Wilders told De Telegraaph (translations from Gates of Vienna). “I cannot conclude anything but that the court does not award me a fair trial.”

“I have no respect for this,” Wilders added. He pointed out that in a typical criminal case there are often dozens of witnesses heard.

But this is not a typical trial. This is a rigged game, a fixed fight, a show trial that is premised not on Dutch law but on Islamic law. Indeed, the trial of Geert Wilders is a test case for sharia in the Netherlands, the grafting onto a free Western country the repressive cage of Islamic rule.

Discussing Muslim progress against “Islamophobia” at the 35th meeting of foreign ministers of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) in Kampala, Uganda in 2008, Secretary General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu made the following statement:

In confronting the Danish cartoons and the Dutch film “Fitna”, we sent a clear message to the West regarding the red lines that should not be crossed. As we speak, the official West and its public opinion are all now well-aware of the sensitivities of these issues. They have also started to look seriously into the question of freedom of expression from the perspective of its inherent responsibility, which should not be overlooked.

One reading doesn’t convey the chilling import of these words.

As we speak, the official West and its public opinion are all now well-aware of the sensitivities of these issues.

Yes, and to the craven point where “the official West and its public opinion” are paralyzed and silenced by these same “sensitivities.”

They have also started to look seriously into the question of freedom of expression from the perspective of its inherent responsibility, which should not be overlooked.

When the OIC speaks about “freedom of expression,” it means freedom of expression as governed by the laws of Islam — sharia. When the OIC says we in the West have “started to look seriously into the question of freedom of expression from the perspective of its inherent responsibility,” it means we in the West have started to regard expression from the perspective of sharia — from the perspective of the totalitarian Islamic system.

So here’s some unwashed creep with a name nobody outside his own country can pronounce ( Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu), and he’s telling the west how things are gonna be.  And so far, a lot in the west seems to be caving in.

No More Bat Boat

Ady Gil Gets a Nose Job





Personally, I’m not in favor of whale hunting. Leave them alone. You want meat, grow a few hundred cattle. That being said, the “whale warriors” have to be the most annoying greenies out there. They have their own television program ... in which they take pictures of themselves harassing Japanese fishermen and fishing boats. Lately these “warriors” have turned somewhat violent, pelting the fishing boats with chum, water balloons, paint guns, etc. The fishermen respond with the standard anti-piracy tool: fire hoses. Reality TV drama with a green theme! Much more exciting than watching guys catch crabs in the dark!!

Well, the inevitable happened. The Save The Whales people put their super hi-tech speedboat in front of a full size ship, and stopped. The whaling ship was underway. Ships don’t have brakes you know. I remember a little bit from driver training, about the impact power of things out on the streets: bicycle beats pedestrian, motorcycle beats bicycle, car beats motorcycle, pickup truck beats car, bigger truck beats pickup truck, bus beats bigger truck, train beats bus.  And you know what beats train? Ships. And bigger ships beat smaller ones. Oh sure, rules of the road say that pedestrians always have the right of way ... but don’t be a dope and set out to prove it. Rules of the sea say that a kayak probably has right of way over anything else on the water too ... but you’d be a fool to force the issue with an air craft carrier.

The “whale warriors” decided to force the issue. Naturally they lost. Boo frickin’ hoo. And now their two million dollar batman boat is all stove in. tsk tsk tsk. On the other hand, leave the whales the hell alone. Go catch some stingrays if you’re hungry. We’ve got loads of them. Or start up a fish farm like everyone else is doing. So honestly ... I’m not sure which side I’m on here. But the “whale warriors” seem like floating stinky hippies to me, so they probably deserve punching just on general principle.

A conservation group’s boat had its bow sheared off and was in danger of sinking as it took on water Wednesday after it was struck by a Japanese whaling ship in the frigid waters of Antarctica, the group said.

The boat’s six crew members were safely transferred to another of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society’s vessels, the newly commissioned Bob Barker. The boat is named for the American game show host who donated $5 million to buy it.

The clash was the most serious in the past several years, during which the Sea Shepherd has sent vessels into far-southern waters to try to harass the Japanese fleet into ceasing its annual whale hunt.



image

AP caption: “Sea Shepherd activists aboard the anti-whaling group’s vessel Ady Gil tow a rope that is used to attack screws of Japanese vessels.”

Um, that rather sounds like an act of piracy to me. At least an act of violence. Note the pirate flag too.



Clashes using hand-thrown stink bombs, ropes meant to tangle propellers and high-tech sound equipment have been common in recent years, and crashes between ships have sometimes occurred.

The society said its vessel Ady Gil — a high-tech speedboat that resembles a stealth bomber — was hit by the Japanese ship the Shonan Maru near Commonwealth Bay and had about 10 feet (three meters) of its bow knocked off.

Locky Maclean, the first mate of the society’s lead ship, said one crewman from New Zealand appeared to have suffered two cracked ribs, but the others were uninjured. The crew members were safely transferred to the group’s third vessel, though the Ady Gil’s captain remained on board to see what could be salvaged, he said.

The group accused the Japanese ship of deliberately ramming the Ady Gil.

“They were stopped dead in the water when the incident occurred,” Maclean said of the Ady Gil. “When they realized that the Shonan Maru was aiming right for them, they tried to go into reverse to get the bow out of the way but it was too late. The Shonan Maru made a course correction and plowed directly into the front end of the boat.”



image



The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society claimed its 78 ft protest powerboat the Ady Gil was “sliced in half” by the Japanese security ship Shonan Maru 2 as it loitered near the whaling fleet.

Jeff Hansen, the group’s director, insisted the Ady Gil was trying to get out of the way when it was hit, but Japan’s government-backed Institute of Cetacean Research (ICR) has accused the protesters of causing the collision. Mr Hansen said the incident occurred after two activist vessels intercepted the Japanese fleet near Antarctica’s Commonwealth Bay.

“The Ady Gil has been cut, hit by one of the harpoon vessels,” he said. “It was stationary at the time. It tried to back out of the way but the Shonan Maru 2 had it in its path. It came through and took off a section off the fuselage.”

There wreckage of the boat was still afloat, but it was expected to sink in the next few hours as it took on water, he said. All six crew members had been rescued and transferred to Sea Shepherd’s new Norwegian harpoon ship the Bob Barker. “Everyone aboard is safe, we’ve managed to get everyone off and they’re ok,” Mr Hansen told Australian media.

“We have it all on film and we’re getting onto all the authorities at the moment.”

Paul Watson, captain and founder of Sea Shepherd, said the attack “seriously escalates the whole situation”.

“If they think that our remaining two ships will retreat from the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary in the face of their extremism, they will be mistaken,” he said. “We now have a real whale war on our hands now and we have no intention of retreating.”

Authorities? What authorities? Out in international waters, “out beyond the line” in the truest meaning of the phrase, pirate flag flying - painted on!, acting like hooligans.

The activists have a ship named the Bob Barker? Yeah, him. Mr. Gameshow host, Bob “have your pets spayed or neutered” Barker. They have another craft named the Steve Irwin. Crikey.

When it [ the Ady Gil ] was launched on Dec 19, the $1.5 million carbon fibre trimaran was touted as Sea Shepherd’s secret weapon. The Ady Gil was designed to run on low-emission, renewable fuels and was built with materials that would make it difficult for radars to detect so that it could sneak up of whaling vessels and disrupt the hunt. But its lighweight design, which allowed the vessel to reach higher speeds than the group’s larger ships, meant it was far less robust and more susceptible to attack.

This was the maiden voyage of the Ady Gil. Previously known as the EarthRace, it’s a very high performance open ocean racing boat. “Couldn’t get out of the way in time”? Horseshit. EarthRace holds the record for the fastest motorboat trip around the globe; just under 61 days. On two tanks full of fuel I gather. 78 feet long, but only drawing 4 feet of water, the EarthRace could hit 40 knots with it’s 1040hp engines and it’s dry weight of only 14 tons.

(October 18, 2009) At a fundraising event in Los Angeles on Saturday, the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society unveiled their newest “ocean defense” vessel: the Ady Gil. Formerly known as Earthrace, the ship was renamed to honor the benefactor that helped the anti-whaling group acquire the ship.

“We’re very excited that the Ady Gil will be joining the Steve Irwin in Antarctica this campaign,” Captain Paul Watson said. “With these two ships, we will mount the most ambitious and aggressive effort to date to obstruct the slaughter of the whales in the Southern Ocean.”

We’ve been following the transformation of the Earthrace/Gil from a world-record holding speedboat to an anti-whaling vessel since it was rumored back in April that it would be joining the Sea Shepherd fleet. With the new paint job and a few additional high-tech goodies now installed, it looks like the ship is ready to join the Irwin for Operation Waltzing Matilda this December.

As expected, Watson made it clear that he intends to place the Gil in harms way — particularly as an “intercept and blocking” weapon against the Japanese fleet. Sounds like a risky game of “chicken” — but Ady Gil Captain Pete Bethune is ready for the challenge.”If they ever hit us with an explosive harpoon it’ll be massive damage,” he told Ecorazzi during the summer. “But certainly we’ll do our best to get in their way. If they hit us it will always be their guy that pulled the trigger — but hopefully things won’t come to that.”



Consider yourselves fortunate that the fishermen didn’t hunt you down and kill you. I’m sure it was very tempting.

Commercial whaling is banned inthe Southern Ocean, but the Japanese have exploited a legal loophole to continue whaling for “scientific purposes”. This season the Japanese fleet aims to harpoon up to 935 minke whales and 50 fin whales, both of which are classified as endangered.

Minke whales and Fin whales are both baleen whales, like their cousins the Humpbacks and the Blues. Minkes are rather small, about 24 feet and 9 tons. Fins are the second largest creature on earth, reaching 88 feet and 75 tons. Both are endangered species, although the minke population is thought to exceed 900,000 worldwide, roughly 30 times the fin whale population. Actually, minkes may not be endangered; it’s hard to tell.

Is Japan full of it? I think so. You don’t need to kill whales to study them. Certainly not by the hundreds. And you especially don’t need to kill any of the seriously endangered ones. None. But stopping whaling altogether? Or at least stopping commercial, floating factory whaling? Sounds to me like this is a job for the UN and the One World Navy. Not a job for floating hippies in their little plastic speedboats.

Et tu? Warner Bros?

Just how far is political correctness going to go? Now it’s infesting the Looney Tunes gang!

I found that Netflix has the ‘Golden Age of Looney Tunes’ on dvd. The cartoons I grew up watching on Saturday mornings: Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Wile E. Coyote and the Roadrunner, well, you get the picture. Good, clean, violent, fun stuff suitable for children from the 1940s on…

…until now apparently.

I settled down last night to watch the latest dvd, Looney Tunes Vol 4 Disc 1. Here’s what I was forced to watch—Forced! Mind you. I couldn’t fast-forward past it.

image

The cartoons you are about to see are products of their time. They may depict some of the ethnic and racial prejudices that were commonplace in American society. These depictions were wrong then and are wrong today. While the following does not represent the Warner Bros. view of today’s society, these cartoons are being presented as they were originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as claiming these prejudices never existed.

Now, this opens up a huge can of cats. (What? You think putting worms back in the can is hard? Try putting cats back in the can. They bite, claw, and scratch. And run faster than worms.)

There’s no mention of what ethnic or racial prejudices are depicted. No mention of which were ‘wrong then and are wrong now?’ No mention of who decided they were wrong? Or why?

I believe this opening statement is placed so as to sensitize the viewer to be offended. Or feel guilty.

By the Three Kennedys! They attack not just any children’s cartoons, WB attacks their own children’s cartoons.

Meanwhile, I’m still watching the dvd. I’ve yet to be offended.

Imagine, I go to the bookstore and buy a copy of, say, Huckleberry Finn. Actually, I have a copy of Huckleberry Finn. No such warnings appear in it.

And, imagine if such a statement were included in the preface of each copy of the Koran published in these United States? Would there be an uproar?

An editorial by Pat Condell. One of his best with H/T to Lyndon.

H/T LyndonB

I was away again and catching up on things when I found this in one of Lyndon’s comments. I try and keep up with Condell but obviously I missed this.
I think it’s one of his best. I believe EVERYONE SHOULD SHARE THIS.  From what I have seen here over five years, I can tell you this guy has it exactly right.  And for some time now I have been saying to my countrymen, don’t think you’re immune.  What starts here always makes it way overseas. Once they get a firm foothold, there won’t be any way except ball and shot to rid ourselves of them.

Conservative warrior David Horowitz was scheduled to speak at St. Louis University this month. But he won’t be. University officials canceled his speech because of its title: “Islamo-Fascism Awareness and Civil Rights.”

Horowitz commented: “I have spoken at 400 universities. This is the first time my speech has been censored and stopped by an administration. And they are supposed to be the guardians of intellectual discourse.” Cary Nelson, the president of the American Association of University Professors, said that with this cancellation, St. Louis University “joins the small group of campuses that are universities in name only…. The free exchange of ideas is not just a comforting offshoot of higher education; it defines the fundamental nature of the enterprise.

Eco Terrorists Hold Coal Mine Hostage

image




Greenpeace blocking Svalbard coal shipment



Climbers from Greenpeace have since early Friday morning been blocking the loading of coal from the Svea mine at Svalbard. The action is a protest against coal mining and climate changes.

The Greenpeace vessel Arctic Sunrise has spent the last months in the Arctic sailing in the waters around Greenland and now over to Svalbard area.  Onboard are both activists and scientists

researching the climate changes impact on the Arctic.

Friday morning, 22 activists from the vessel are participating in the action. Svea coal mine is operated by the Norwegain state own company Store Norske Spitsbergen Kullkompani.

A huge banner at the loading crane says “Coal fired Arctic meltdown.”

Svea mine is located in the inner part of the Van Mijenfjord in the southern part of the Spitsbergen Island at 75 degrees north in the Norwegian Arctic.

Four of the Greenpeace climbers are Friday morning hanging over the loading crane stopping the coal from land to be transferred over to the coal bulk vessel Pascha.

Greenpeace says the coal mining at Svalbard should be stopped.

Ok, I get it

But it’s still porn.

(Another follow up post; this one to Peiper’s post about the showing at the Tate gallery)



Brooke Shields picture withdrawn from Tate exhibition after police visit



Tate Modern gallery has withdrawn a controversial photograph of Brooke Shields following a visit by police, amid concerns it could be in breach of child pornography laws.

Officers from the Metropolitan Police attended the gallery yesterday. They are consulting the Crown Prosecution Service over whether the image breaches the Obscene Publications Act.

The provocative picture by New York artist Richard Prince shows Shields standing naked in a bathtub, with a heavily made-up face and oiled torso. Children’s campaigners had condemned the Tate for including the picture in their latest exhibition, describing it as a “magnet” for paedophiles.

So controversial is the photograph, called Spiritual America, that it was hung in its own room behind a closed door bearing a warning that the work was “challenging”. However, visitors to a preview showing yesterday found the room closed.

The Tate chose to include the picture in the Pop Life: Art In A Material World after consulting lawyers. It has been exhibited in the US before but never in Britain. A spokesman said: “The exhibit is temporarily closed. We are in discussions with police.”

Prince’s work is a photograph of a photograph. The original was taken by Garry Gross, a US photographer, in 1975. It was commissioned by Shields’ mother, who was intent on turning her little girl into a child star and signed away the rights. The picture was later featured in a Playboy Press publication, and Gross planned to turn it into a poster.

In 1981, Shields made an unsuccessful attempt to buy back the negatives. A judge ruled that she was a “hapless victim of a contract… to which two grasping adults bound her”. The legal battle caught the eye of Prince, and he describes Spiritual America as a commentary on Shields as an “abstract entity”




When Gary Gross took the photograph, he called it “Brooke Shields : The woman in the child”. It is a photograph of an undeveloped little girl standing in a somewhat provocative pose, naked in a steamy fancy marble tub, while wearing a black lace choker, a ton of makeup, and a fancy hairstyle. At that age Brooke Shields had the facial structure of a woman in her mid 20s. That was her big appeal in the modeling world several years later. But it was this picture that her mother commissioned, signed away the rights to, and then published in a soft porn skin magazine to jump start the kid’s career. In my opinion the photograph is pornographic, though there are worse kinds of pornography.

Richard Prince comes along and takes a picture of the picture. Oooh, so creative. He might have saturated the colors a bit more, and he might have thrown in a little soft focus. But that’s it, and those are mights because I’ve never seen the originals, and how the heck can you really tell on the internet anyway? So Prince takes a picture of a picture, and gives it a smarmy douchebag title Spiritual America - ooh, what amazing irony, what soul splitting artistic insight: we crude Americans will whore out ourselves and our own children just to make a buck. Which pretty much was exactly what Brooke’s mother Terri Shields was doing.

Artistic merit: ZERO
Artistic effort: ZERO
Originality: ZERO

It isn’t “pop art”. At best Prince’s work is cynical snark. I get it already, now go away and take your kiddie smut with you.

But listen to the art world - this is the MAJOR PIECE at the Tate’s exhibition. The MOST IMPORTANT part. Which tells me that the Tate show sucks donkey hooves.

Tate Modern’s Pop Life is a fascinating show, but one of the most interesting works in it is the American artist Richard Prince’s 1983 work Spiritual America.

It takes the form of a ready-made or found object – a publicity photograph showing the prepubescent actress Brooke Shields naked, her body wet from the bath.

Prince framed the photo in an elaborate gilt frame, and then hung it alone. The heavily ironic title, Spiritual America, was used by Alfred Stieglitz for a photo taken in 1923 showing the haunches of a work horse. By using it Prince wasn’t inviting us to ogle the child, but to see exploitation as symptomatic of what was happening in America in the mink-coated Reagan years.

The image and title are used to contrast the country’s old values of hard work and honest endeavour with the pursuit of success and fame at whatever cost. When Prince first hung the picture on the gallery wall, it was without comment. It was as though he was speechless in the face of such crassness.

Nice try. FAIL. A picture of porn is still porn, no matter what “heavily ironic” title you steal from another work and label it with. Prince is a total loser. And the Tate Gallery are panderers.

Racist!!!!!!!

Seeing just how Bizarro World England has become these days, how is it possible that the actual government would fund a program that targets an actual ethnic group and profiles them as being inclined to criminal behavior? Wouldn’t this be just about a capital offense? It makes NO DIFFERENCE if it’s absolutely true! Not only is that beside the point, it might even make it a worse crime!

Police warn girls on hiding guns

Young women are being warned not to hide guns for their boyfriends, brothers or male friends in a new campaign by the Metropolitan police.

It is aimed at the growing number of teenage girls in London who, the Met says, are being persuaded to store weapons for male gang members.

Police are primarily targeting black girls aged between 15 and 19.

People caught hiding a gun for someone else can expect to receive a five-year prison sentence.

The series of radio, cinema and billboard adverts with the message: “Hide his gun and you help commit the crime” is being launched by Trident, the Metropolitan Police’s anti-shooting unit.

Claudia Webb from the Trident Independent Advisory Group says vulnerable young women are sometimes pressured into storing or transporting weapons by the men they know.

“We are deeply concerned however, that this involvement seems to be increasing and those who are involved seem to be younger and younger,” she added.

Jail for gangsters’ girlfriends who stash guns

Young women who stash guns for their gangster boyfriends are risking their futures and will face jail, police said today.

The stark warning was issued at the launch of a campaign to help prevent shootings across London by urging young women not to hide weapons .

Black teenagers in the capital aged between 15 and 19 years are being targeted under the initiative, which follows a recent rise in the numbers of young women being arrested and convicted for possessing weapons.

Among a dozen women charged so far this year with possession of a firearm were seven teenagers, including a 16-year-old girl arrested after a 9mm Browning self-loading pistol loaded with one round was discovered in her bedroom.

The series of radio, cinema and billboard adverts - carrying the strapline “Hide his gun and you help commit the crime” - has been masterminded by Trident, the Metropolitan Police’s anti-shooting unit.




There is no mistake here. It’s not just one or two articles saying this. It’s all of them:

Ok, sometimes they try to dress it up a little bit, but that actually makes for a more specific profiling group:

The hard-hitting adverts, which are aimed at 15 to 19-year-olds of African and African Caribbean heritage, are designed to combat a worrying growth in the number of young women being arrested and convicted of possessing weapons.



Is street crime so out of control there - where handguns are already illegal, right? - so utterly out of control that the cops have to result to racial profiling? What has that socialist utopia come to?

Town mayor drafts in ‘experts’ in bid to axe political correctness aimed at minorities and women.

And about darn time someone did. Lets hope it’s catching.
Unless someone takes the mayor to court over this.  Hey ... ya never know.

It would be great to read about American towns doing likewise.

A town’s mayor has brought in “experts” to root out political correctness in his council targeting groups aimed at ethnic minorities and women.

Doncaster’s elected mayor Peter Davies has drafted in Laura and John Midgley, from the Campaign Against Political Correctness, to see what can be ditched.

Among the groups they have already identified as too politically correct are an ethnic minorities welfare rights service and a racial multi-agency partnership.

They will also be looking to see if Doncaster Council bans the use of any specific words by staff. ‘Some councils ban staff from addressing people as “love”, a ban which I believe to be patronising,’ said Mr Davies. ‘Another council had banned the word “ladies”, preventing people starting speeches with “ladies and gentlemen“‘.

The mayor rejected any suggestion the move to bring in the campaigners was “racist.” I have brought them in for advice on rooting out political correctness.

Mr Midgley said it was the first time the organisation had been asked by an authority to come and give advice, although they had been asked for advice from concerned councillors in the past.

He said: ‘What we’ve got in Mr Davies is a mayor who has been elected on a promise to reduce and, where possible, eliminate political correctness in Doncaster. The people of Doncaster are crying out for this just as people are throughout the country.

‘We’ve got plenty of examples where expensive political correctness takes place in Doncaster, like the ethnic minority welfare rights service. At the end of the day, people of all backgrounds may have an entitlement to things like council tax benefit or housing and there is no need to have one separate unit for one group in particular.’

He has also raised the borough’s Racial Multiagency Partnership as an example of political correctness that they feel could be removed and will also be looking at groups aimed only at women.

The council describes it as a partnership of core agencies, which provide a coordinated response to racist incidents. It was formed in January 2005 in response to Home Office guidance. Added Mr Midgley: “ People should call the police rather than go to a separate agency.”

He said: ‘They are experts on the subject, and political correctness is a complete drain on public expenditure. It is completely unnecessary, and it is universally unpopular.

‘I would not invite anyone to come and advise me that I thought would be racist. At the moment I haven’t decided what specific actions to take.

‘All my policies are aimed at cohesion, not division, and it is political correctness that leads to division and ghettos. My policies will lead to harmony.’

Mr and Mrs Midgley are not being paid for their advice.

Crowder On Health Care

Dammit, I should have had this up yesterday. I’ve got 150 new emails in the inbox, egads. So, a day late, a dollar short, as usual.

This runs about 20:30 ... so it had better be good.

An update in lousey news and oh hell. Here we go again. Yeah. Travelers.

OK, let me say it again ... without saying it out loud.

Everyone here knows my solution to this sort of totally unreasonable problem.  No. I just can’t resist.  Kill ALL the bastards! Make no exceptions. The good ones are the dead ones.  Otherwise this will only continue to get worse and worse as more and more find how easy it is to get away with this.

What makes this case (reported on some months ago) even more urgent, is that a group of hapless Navy vets are the ones being booted out after 30 years.
THIRTY FREEKIN YEARS PPL.  And the biggest fault is with the council or whoever approved this outrage. So they need to be greased also, to set a proper example for the rest of the country. 

You folks outside the UK can’t begin to imagine how big this problem is, made all the worse by the politically correct, socialist/ commie scumbags who have forced this on the country.  And those responsible including the legal eagles who pave the way are no less then traitors.

Think of these life forms as land pirates, and maybe my suggestion with regard to their elimination won’t seem quite as harsh or outlandish.


War veterans’ clubhouse faces demolition - to make way for travellers’ caravans

By Daily Mail Reporter
Last updated at 4:44 PM on 13th July 2009

A group of war veterans face being evicted from their clubhouse after travellers demanded it be torn down to make way for more caravans.

The 40-strong group of travellers moved on to a plot of land next to the veterans’ clubhouse last week following a council decision to relocate them.

Members of the Royal Naval ex-servicemen’s club are now in talks with Gravesham Council who will decide if the veterans are to be relocated permanently.

The veterans, who have been on the site for more than 30 years, were shocked when the travellers set up home on a disused patch of grass 20 yards away.

But it came as more of a surprise when they discovered the travellers were evicted from a previous site for breaching government greenbelt land planning laws.

Their eight static mobile homes were bulldozed after a four-year wrangle costing £40,000 for numerous court orders and legal fees.

As a result, a concession was made to the small group which allowed them to move to the former allotment land off Springhead Road in Northfleet.

But that brought them into direct contact with the Naval Association club who are fighting to stay.

The move comes just six months after the local council pledged they would ‘not abandon’ the 160 members of the Naval Association of Gravesend.

Association chairman and Korean war veteran John Down said the group would fight to remain where they are.

‘A lot of our members are elderly people who live nearby and don’t want to have to go elsewhere,’ he said.

A council spokesman confirmed it was ‘in talks’ with the veterans to decide whether they will be relocated.

The spokesman said: ‘There is a meeting scheduled with the Naval Association - we are in talks with regards to the gypsy site.

‘The gypsies have a spokesman allocated by them who is liaising with our officers.’

On its website, the council noted it had to be sensitive to the needs of the women and children on the site who were ‘all considered vulnerable’.

It emerged the council even offered to tarmac the new site at taxpayers’ expense - until travellers told them they could do it themselves for free.

Gypsy traveller Anne Scarrott said: ‘The council are going to knock the navy club down so we can have more space.

‘There is not enough space while the navy club is here. We are all too close to each other and can see into each others’ windows.’

The ex-servicemen said the decision could mean the end of the road for their association which was formed 76 years ago.

They admit their scout hall-style building is old but would prefer it to be updated rather than move out of the council-owned property.

Veteran Terry Moore, 56, said: ‘It’s a quaint old place - I don’t see why we should be the ones moving.

‘The hall has memorabilia, old medals and pictures. We definitely don’t want to move - especially to make way for people who don’t pay their taxes.

‘The club is in a great location for many of our members. If we have to go somewhere else they simply won’t be able to make the journey.’

THE MAIL

So it cost it taxpayer £40,000.00 to remove illegals from land after four years, and now they move in and DEMAND this. They DEMAND!

Alright. I can understand perhaps the Brits being a bit civilized might also be a tad squeamish about doing the job themselves.
No Problem.  Hire Russians. No. Even better.  Rent a Chinese regiment. Maybe only a squad and see how fast this problem can go away.

Crivens, Crowder!





It’s just a tiny video this week. More of an ad than anything really. He’s promising a great big 20 minute job on Monday, all about healthcare in Canadialand. So tune in then, and we’ll see what’s up.
