Facebook: Anti-White Bias in Future?

From Facebook World – Will Extremism Kill Freedom of Speech?
I post this here in case it gets deleted on Facebook, and because I think it’s too important to ignore. I want to escape from it, but the news keeps dragging me back in!

White people should start flagging anti-white prejudice, promotion and crimes more, from Black Power such as the Hamilton musical black monopoly rewriting history to the Islamists taking over UK city districts and then demanding Sharia law and schooling.

I’m not writing it because I think the British system is brilliant, and it looks pretty bad at the moment with all the stabbings etc. If it was nice positive Buddhism I might be supporting it, but Islamism is one system I consider much worse than the Western – the originator of the whole religion, the Prophet Muhammed, had a child bride himself of course! Ayesha was apparently 6 when married, 9 when they had sex!!

I wasn’t going to post these two stories I saw soon after each other last night: Cherie Blair saying the unfortunate truth about rape in Africa, and some British schoolgirls suffering it while on holiday there (it’s on the BBC website but I never saw it on the TV headline news; in contrast, some unfortunate racist chanting at a football match gets headline news for days); but now that censorship is going to increase:
https://uk.news.yahoo.com/cherie-blair-under-fire-telling-180717524.html
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-47721676

I know rape isn’t just a black issue, but the black issue isn’t all about a Hamilton musical either, as many schoolchildren might think from watching that, and being kept away from real life by censorship and religious school sectors.

I’m not a white supremacist by the way, although people who don’t want me providing a good role model claim that. I’m a PhD graduate from the critical theory tradition, who started off criticising the (white) Western elite capitalist model, and continued when it went Multicultural Fascist!

Rolf Harris Another Example of Power-Crazed Alpha-Males

Rolf Harris was depicted as the devil of the kangaroo community in Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps. Yesterday he was convicted of crimes against children. Harris’s depiction in Werewolf of Oz was not a prophecy, or even an educated guess, it was just because one of his most famous songs was Tie Me Kangaroo Down, and the fact that he was the most goody two-shoes Australian known in Britain.

Growing Up In 1970s Britain

Growing up in 1970s Britain you used to hear that child homes were ‘bad places’, but there was nothing about celebrities, so it has been a surprise and disappointment to see ‘nice’ people like Jimmy Savile, Stuart Hall and Rolf Harris convicted of child crimes, although it is good that they have.

Moreover, when the abuse in child homes was finally being exposed there were child-grooming gangs waiting outside, with men preying on the children by pretending to give them the love they’d lacked during their neglected childhood.

Living in ‘Multicultural’ Britain

Those gangs took advantage of New Labour’s ‘multicultural’ mantra that meant social alienation for those who dared to criticise the negative aspects of these new and rising cultures in British society.

Acting as New Labour’s biggest supporter in this was the BBC and liberal media. The same media outlets that had been covering up or neglecting to challenge their ‘celebrities’.

The Nigerian girls kidnapping showed the ‘norms’ of some of those cultures.

Studying in the ICS

I wanted to research and write about what was going on in Britain at that time.

I was stopped by the ICS’s man at the BBC, who was having a relationship with his student/secretary at the time. They had been to a conference together in Hawaii, and later married.

I was just finishing my thesis, and afterwards complained to the university about bullying and grooming in the ICS.

They said I was too late to complain about that, as there was a time limit, which was six months I think. They didn’t ask anything more about it.

I guess they wanted to protect their ‘stars’.

Celebrities Not a Surprise

So the behaviour of the exposed celebrities doesn’t seem such a surprise. A norm in academia and the workplace, and it seems in the media, is for those with power to expect some perks from their position.

For some of the powerful, this usually means grooming lower staff members, while persecuting any rivals or those who don’t adhere to their advances.

Britain has been cleaning its act up over the last decade. I hope it continues, and that future generations don’t relapse into a culture or cultures of cruelty, denial and self-induced ignorance.

Although it makes Britain look bad now, hopefully it’ll make it look better in the future. Most cultures and societies in the world are still years behind in such matters.

Bob Crow and Union Working Class Struggle

‘Twenty minutes later, Bob Crow pulled another one back with a short snap strike, leaving the Redbacks defence red-faced as well as red-backed.’

Bob Crow, Union Leader  Bob Crow.JPG

Bob Crow passed away yesterday morning. He was the General Secretary of the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT) and inspired the above Crow character in the Werewolf of Oz.

He was a good example of the working class battling to achieve, and help their fellow workers. If Britain hadn’t been divided by Thatcher and Blair, and profit and religion taken over from fairness and equality as the main political focuses, then maybe people like Bob Crow could have made Britain a more united kingdom.

Britain’s Future

His critics argued that he was holding Britain back.

But was he holding Britain back from cheaper tube fares, or bigger bonuses for the big bosses after workers lost their jobs?

The next reflection from 242 Mirror Poems and Reflections commented on this, and seems a fitting post for a man who tried to help those struggling to survive in a rapidly changing country.

Reflection 4

The well-behaved British working class used to be known as ‘salt of the earth’ when they were compliant up to the 1950s, but not so much anymore.
Were things that different in history? I don’t know.
And have they changed that much? Well, elite corruption has been exposed more since the 1950s, making the workers less likely to trust and revere the upper classes; Thatcher decimated the working-class industries in the 1980s, destroying communities; and New Labour betrayed their traditional voters by squeezing them out of the workplace between high-earning elites and foreign workers willing to work for less.
So things have probably changed, but I don’t know how much, or if it is the main reason for there apparently being less ‘salt of the earth’.

Hurricane in Britain Inspires Spitfire Dogfight

There’s a horrendous hurricane sweeping across Britain at this very moment, doing lots of damage to the greenygrey countryside, as well as threatening life, so we’ve delved into the vaults, and decided to post the first episode of the week of your favourite werewolf travels Australia to a Wizard of Oz theme travel quest epic satirical comedy classic virtual travel excellent expeditionary exercise in literary nonsense… but with a story and end.

Spit the Dog Story in Sydney

This episode continues the questing quartet’s travels through Sydney, with the Spit Reserve inspiring a whole lotta Spit the Dog tomfoolery.

spit reserve

There’s also more alliteration, which is described on About.com as:

‘The repetition of an initial consonant sound, as in “a peck of pickled peppers.” As J.R.R. Tolkien observed, alliteration “depends not on letters but on sounds.” Thus the phrase know-nothing is alliterative, but climate change is not.’ Greengrey's Rambles: How to Remember North America

The alliteration is inspired by a star name and mythical mothman; met on our first epic ramble across North America.

Chapter 118.  Spit the Dog Reserved in Sydney

We continued north to the Opera House, where I felt like a proper tourist, and not a bedraggled traveller from another dimension. We looked at a Sydney map there, and one place stood out straight away: the Spit Reserve. I was a big fan of Spit the Dog when it starred on Tiswas, and thought the reserve must be where it now resided.

Crossing the Harbour Bridge to the Spit Reserve

The others agreed to go there, so we made our way across Harbour Bridge to the north, with great views of Little Sirius Cove below. Pebbles glinted in the sunshine like stars on a clear night. Mosman reminded me of that Mothman creature I met while one half of the Greenygrey on our epic ramble across North America. Magical memories momentarily materialised once more.

There was a Spit Road leading to the Spit Reserve. I was impressed with the amount of respect they had bestowed upon my favourite puppet dog.

Entering the Spit Reserve was like every Spit the Dog fan’s dream, as there were dozens of the dogs all enjoying life in safety; although I couldn’t be sure if I saw the original Spit amongst them.

They seemed reserved compared to the original Spit, with not much wild spitting going on at all; I guess the passing of time in such a comfortable reserve had mellowed the spitline out.

Notes

Spit the Dog was a puppet worked by Bob Carolgees on Tiswas (1970s/1980s fun variety show).

Semiotics, Britain, Norway, Helly Hansen, Poetry and Greenygrey

Hi, it’s Grey Greyvara, social conscience at the Greenygrey. The image of my human parallel Che Guevara became a cultural icon, so I’ve been chosen to present today’s blog on semiotics. My subject for the blog is Dr. Marc Latham, who studied semiotics for his PhD around 2000-2002, before adapting it to framing for his media analysis. Marc was a critical theorist, supporting more media freedom and social liberation. The Islamisation of the left sent him to the Greenygrey centre.

New Brands Theory, Brand New Poetry

Towards the end of Marc’s studies in 2005, branding became the new buzzword in Communications.

Many industries are still discovering branding,
five to seven years behind the Greenygrey.
Not because we searched words to say,
the theories just passed our way.

In 2012 Marc bought a Karrimor coat,
it had a British flag on its front.
In 2013 he wrapped it around a Norwegian tree,
reminding him of another Communications theory.

Helly Hansen, Karrimor and Greenygrey

Helly Hansen is a Norwegian clothing company with a HH logo, as the Greenygrey is GG.

Helly Hansen is proud to fly the Norwegian colours.

Karrimor is a British clothing company with a Union Jack logo.

While that may seem racist-nationalistic to multicultural fascists trying to eradicate any historical Britishness from Britain, the logo is black and white, as the Greenygrey is greenygrey.

Karrimor - Built Different

When Helly Met Greeny, in Cultural Neutrality

In 2012 Marc Latham bought a new jacket. Having seen a greenygrey one in a store he thought about buying it, but when he looked online he found a Karrimor one much cheaper.

So the decision to buy Karrimor was based on greenygrey colours and price rather than its logo.

Travelling to Norway Marc had no qualms about wearing it, knowing that Norway and Britain have a good relationship, and especially since they were strong allies in World War Two.

Cultural Meaning

So while to some people in the world, and increasingly in Britain (non-sporting Britain anyway, with British sportspeople of all races and colours proud to represent Britain) the British flag might symbolise nationalism and colonialism, in Norway it should represent the fight against Fascism and oppression.

Returning to semiotics and branding, that is how names and images start from human creation, and then grow to mean something in human culture; that meaning is dependent on the culture and individual.

Che Guevara and Winston Churchill are both heroes and villains depending on your political viewpoint, and what issues you focus on.

Communist Che Guevara helped topple an island’s corrupt dictatorship, but executed many people afterwards.

Conservative Winston Churchill helped save an island from corrupt dictatorship, but had presided over the shooting of demonstrating miners.

While their politics might have been different, they both became heroic historical icons to the majority of the people they represented.

Mental Time Trap, Under Tree Top 

So what happened when Helly met Greeny? There are a lot of ways to interpret the tree and Karrimor jacket photo.

Scandinavia 334

It could look like it was all planned, if Marc hadn’t seen Eidfjord trees wrapped in colourful knitting beforehand.

Marc might have thought nothing more,
but with time to spare,
in the Eidfjord forest,
he thought he’d copy
the knitted-kitted trees,
and create a greenygrey display.

Bringing us back to that other theory,
highlighted by Derren Brown cleverly,
of time-delay traps advertisers like to lay.

To show that we’re not rabid anti-capitalists and anti-advertising, and in line with the communist world’s embracing of some capitalism; and to try and sell some books (we’d much rather be working on a grant and giving them away for free, but might have to give up some of our freedom!) which have lots more information like that above, they’re available at Smashwords and Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/author/marclatham).

Politics in the U.K. and World: Labour’s Saviour

Hi, it’s Grey Greyvara, the Greenygrey’s political conscience, and werewolf parallel to the human Che Guevara. Today, we start to round off working-class week with a summary of how and why we view the current U.K. and world political situation.

When Marc Latham was in university he felt prejudiced against, like a microcosm of the British situation told in Chavs: The Demonising of the Working-Class, with an international emphasis on everything, and the old working-class being framed as backward; being blamed for holding Britain back.

University Life During New Labour

Marc started his PhD in line with the far left of Noam Chomsky and the Glasgow Media Group; socialist criticism of the British and ‘Western’ establishment; hoping for a more equal Britain and less international conflict. At the time he thought he was quite rare in his outlook.

But under New Labour’s revisionist internationalism, criticising Britain seemed to become the norm, while criticising other cultures was ‘racist’, and risked social exclusion. Islamism replaced socialism as the likely successor to Western capitalism in British and world hegemony.

New Labour and the Working-Class

While Marc’s hopes for hegemonic theory supported all races and genders gaining more equality under a more socialist Britain, like Che Guevara’s philosophy, New Labour’s multiculturalism seemed to be supporting other cultures while neglecting or persecuting the traditional British working-class; and women under Islamism.

Gordon Brown seemed to confirm this when he called Gillian Duffy a bigot in Rochdale for asking about immigration near the end of the New Labour tenure. Rochdale later emerged in a related infamous story, with a Muslim paedophile ring having been targeting poor and vulnerable children for years during the New Labour government.

Current Labour leader, Ed Miliband, has now admitted New Labour got it wrong on immigration and multiculturalism.

Tony Blair, Christianity and Islam

Tony Blair and New Labour’s policy on Islam and war seems naive at best, and perhaps criminal:

  1. Allowed mass immigration of Muslims.
  2. Gave safe haven to known Islamist terrorists.
  3. Allowed hate preachers to radicalise ordinary Muslims.
  4. Went to war in Afghanistan and Iraq against Muslims.

I think Tony Blair was naive, and as a Christian thought he could work with his fellow monotheist Muslims; preferring them to the pagan communist Slav Russians and allies.

This was shown by New Labour’s first war; supporting Muslim Kosovars against Communist Serbs. Blair was also the only Allied leader not to attend the Russians’ VE Day 60th anniversary celebration.

Tony Blair has now stressed that Islamism is the big threat to world peace.

British Post-Modern Political System 

Marc had wondered why some working-class people supported the Conservatives, as he grew up under Thatcher, but the New Labour government showed him why!

The British political system is no longer like the one Marc grew up under in the 1980s anyway, and is now more post-modern issues based.

While Marc had called for a wider hegemony in his PhD thesis, hoping for more access for the old socialism, politics in the U.K. and the world overtook him; especially as he was held up (both time-wise and financially!) by his department.

The rise of the extreme right-wing Islamic hate preachers in Britain (and I include George Galloway!), and extreme right-wing fascists in southern Europe showed him that a wider access to the political debate has as many negatives as positives.

The old communist systems were full of poor treatment of people as well, and even Che Guevara didn’t do as well in peacetime as he did in war.

So Marc is now in the Greenygrey middle, reacting to policies as much as political ideologies and traditions, and a little disillusioned with it all really. Funnily enough, that might be in line with the ‘Third Way‘ policy supported by New Labour!!!

Understanding Democratic Government Decisions

Hi, it’s Wolf Whistzer, with the Greenygrey news and theory. The G8 EU-US trade deal looks promising, but whether it will come to fruition and cut shopping bills; helping people struggling with the recession; is up in the air for the foreseeable future. Talking of up in the air…

Bird-Brained Government Decisions

Birds and windmills 2
Birds and windmills 2 (Photo credit: johntrathome)

Reading the last couple of paragraphs of the Geographical article about wind power mentioned in yesterday’s article showed the tough decisions policy-makers have to make, in line with Greenygrey theory, with the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) supporting wind turbines despite the amount of birds they kill, because they consider climate change a greater threat to birds:

“Overall, however, the RSPB is sanguine about bird strikes. Looking at the wider picture, it believes that the loss of birds to the blades pales in comparison to the wider threats posed by climate change. ‘Our starting point is climate change and that we can’t tackle that without low-carbon energy,’ says Scrase.

‘We have to be upfront – turbines can kill birds and that can be upsetting,’ he continues. ‘But the impact is insignificant, and nothing compared to the damage that will be caused to birds and other wildlife by climate change. Provided that turbines are well located, bird strikes aren’t much of an issue – even though they’re widely cited by critics of wind farms.’”

Did New Labour Hide Child-Grooming for Multiculturalism? 

Tony Blair, Garden Gnome

One unnecessary bird death seems tragic, but looked at in the wider picture, the RSPB consider it the lesser of two evils.

Reading the above RSPB quote, and comparing it to political decisionmaking, I can’t help think that New Labour did cover up the child-grooming going on in Britain under their government; and that they did it because they considered multiculturalism more important.

It’s only since New Labour lost power that it has been really exposed and tackled. The Conservative-Democrat government has also been quite quiet on it, and Labour’s Anne Cryer was its most vocal political critic, but it seems like more action has been taken since New Labour left government.

If governments are going to give some communities and issues a lower priority for what the consider the greater good they could at least tell the people, rather than just trying to ignore them, and pretending there is no problem.
