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 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 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.
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.
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.
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’.
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.
‘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.’
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.
Spit the Dog was a puppet worked by Bob Carolgees on Tiswas (1970s/1980s fun variety show).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
Allowed hate preachers to radicalise ordinary Muslims.
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!!!
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…
“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?
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.
Hi, it’s Grey Greyvara, social conscience at the Gr8 Greenygrey, reporting on the G8 conference. Back in the ’80s I hoped that Britain and the world would become a socialist utopia; kind of like my human parallel Che Guevara in the ’50s. Then New Labour got power! After cool Brittania turned to bankrupt Britain, with the rich richer and poor poorer, and most communist countries like Russia and China going more capitalist, as well as socialist countries like Sweden, it’s made me think that ethical green capitalism is about the best we can work towards.
G8 Too Late To Set GB Straight?
Has the British working class become lazy, or is it a victim of globalisation? Many of the rich liberal elite running the country (like Piers Morgan before he thankfully left!) claim the British working-class has become lazy, and doesn’t want to work; that’s why they have to import foreign labour.
Most of the economic immigrants are probably harder workers than the British in Britain. When Marc Latham was working his way around the world he was more willing to work longer hours when working: when you’re in a worker-traveller community life revolves around work, and you want to save up for long periods of travelling.
British people working in Britain want to spend time with family or friends, or doing other things than work; as decades of fighting for freedom from serfdom and slavery has stopped them having to work all the hours they can to keep from starvation.
So foreign workers who are used to earning much less are probably going to be better and more willing workers than British workers, whose ancestors have been fighting for better and easier working conditions for generations.
Only last week the BBC’s Panorama current affairs programme had a documentary about builders and dockers being blacklisted from work for fighting for better working conditions in industries where dozens of people still die every year. Actor Ricky Tomlinson was on the breakfast news talking about it.
Mass immigration has seen an increase in cases of poor workplace quality in Britain; including sweat shops and even some cases of modern slavery.
I and most of the working-class in Britain mainly opposed mass immigration because we saw how it was turning back workers’-rights fought for over centuries; not because of racism or bigotry like Gordon Brown thought at the end of New Labour.
Why Can’t I Have a California Mansion?
I don’t blame most of the foreign workers who come to Britain. If the California government was giving out mansions and enough benefits to live comfortably on I’d probably be on the first available plane.
That might seem a crass comparison, but some immigrants to Britain have been housed in mansions, and received massive benefits to live comfortably.
Britain Needs Balance
Maybe some workers and unions were trying to hold the country to ransom, and were pushing it too far in the 1970s. I believe in unions and workers rights, but think it should be within the service of the people of the country.
The same as the executives and liberal elite should be rewarding themselves to what they’re worth, not filling up their own pockets from the country’s finances.
Since Thatcherism took power in the ’80s and has been continued by successive governments, including New Labour, the pendulum has swung too much towards the rich minority from the poor majority. The Conservatives-Liberals government has been no worse than New Labour overall, in my opinion. I prefer Cameron to Blair and Brown so far.
Britain Should Aim for Lake not Sea
After the mass immigration under New Labour the old British working class; those who’ve kept working to keep treading water; are likely to lose out twice, with the recent immigrants taking their place in line for poverty payouts, educational grants etc.
Mass immigration was promoted by New Labour as being good for the economy… before it all collapsed and they were exposed as having bankrupted the country with the bankers.
While mass immigration might have had some benefits for the economy it certainly wasn’t good for the welfare state, and the recent cutbacks and stress on the system are obviously because there’s been a massive increase in the amount of people claiming benefits.
Britain felt like a stormy sea under New Labour, with the murder of Lee Rigby the most recent tragedy from the waves created.
The leaders of our country should aim to make Britain more lake than sea: keeping it calm and quiet. The best way to do that is with controlled low immigration, the rich paying their share, and enough benefits for people who really need them to live on. The people can play their part by working whenever possible.
Maybe I’d feel different if I was younger, a rich boss or an immigrant wanting more people of my community (in multicultural rather than integrated Britain) to feel safer or stronger; but that’s the way I feel as I am in this point of time in my country of birth; it’s just my opinion, one of about 60 million under our government.
British socialists often cite the decline in industry as the reason for working-class communities deteriorating. While mines and steelworks didn’t look nice places to work, they did provide good pay and a communal identity.
Now, they have largely been replaced by the service industries. The BBC has a documentary about a call centre on at the moment, and it shows how the new industries look nicer places to work than the old industries, but they also have other stresses and generally don’t provide as much money and identity.
While the management seem nicer than decades ago, the workers have to call people and try and sell products they don’t usually believe in, meaning they don’t have the job satisfaction of providing something really worthwhile, like in the old coal and steel industries; or crafting their own specialty, like Marx’s pre-industrial self-employed workers.
Maybe the green industries will be the saviour for people and planet? To show that I don’t think green industries are all good, and in line with Greenygrey theory, I was reading yesterday in the Geographical how wind turbines can be deadly for birds.
Many of the people in the call centre documentary seem to be the modern versions of Willy Loman, protagonist of Arthur Miller’s 1949 play Death of a Salesman; one of the first critical commentaries on American consumer capitalism; at about the same time as our legendary travel correspondent Jack Wolfpac’s human parallel Jack Kerouac was escaping it On The Road.
I recently read Stephen King’sOn Writing, where he said the choice between a brave new world and the shopping centre was made in the 1960s. Will we have a second chance?
In the ’80s I felt like Miller and Keroauc, but now I’m an older werewolf living in a country that has gone downhill for the working-class; a 9-5 regular job living in a nice suburban cloned detached house with a garden and picket fence doesn’t seem too bad.
In his middle-age, which turned into his last age, Kerouac felt as alienated and disillusioned with the counter-culture he’d helped create as Miller’s Loman did about the capitalist system he’d worked in; and my human parallel Che did about a lot of the communist revolution.
And 2500 years ago Socrates readily acquiesced with his own execution, thinking he’d done all he could challenging the egos of leaders who thought they and the societies they helped sustain were superior.
No Joking on today’s blog, which addresses a serious issue. The Greenygrey was partly created as a protest against the media and political classes’ obsession with white on black racism, meaning they ignored other prejudices, and opened the way up for the kind of white child exploitation revealed in Oxford yesterday.
That doesn’t mean that Britain shouldn’t fight against white on black racism, and there has been an issue to address, just that it should not be seen as the only prejudice, overshadowing all the other centuries-long prejudices prevalent in British society and culture.
Watching the news yesterday it was amazing to see how shocked the news presenters looked that the Oxford grooming and slavery ring had taken place. It’s been happening for the last ten to fifteen years, since New Labour‘s multicultural fascism and neglect of Britain’s poor provided a perfect environment for it.
Alastair Campbell and Tony Blair’s public relations propaganda policy, ‘multiculturalism’ seemed to have social engineering at its core in a way reminiscent of 1930s Nazi Germany, combined with a witch-hunt against anybody who challenged it; labelling them bigoted racists; mixed with academia’s Islamaphobia concept, paved the way for the child victims to be groomed and then dismissed by social services; with social service members probably pro-Islamic like the university academics who boycott Israel but ignore human rights abuses prevalent in Muslim countries.
Desperate Chav or Greedy Jew
The British ‘liberals’ who tried to stop Marc Latham getting his degree, and made it impossible to have his say at university, are probably sharpening their demonising weapons: ready to label Marc either a chav right-winger or a Jew; the two groups mainly blamed for British and world problems in British academia during the New Labour years.
Marc tried to warn about the terrorism and grooming in his ICS department between 2000 and 2005, but he was ignored and persecuted, like the ‘chav’ girls and parents who tried to warn about the Oxford paedophile ring and others.
Islamaphobia Concept has Provided Shocktroops
Remembering his time in the ICS, there was a quote that ‘news is the shocktroops of propaganda’. Likewise, the ‘Islamaphobia’ concept has provided the shocktroops for the paedophile rings, silencing those who tried to reveal them, whether public or media.
While there are paedophiles and sexists in all social groups, many Islamic countries have gender apartheid at their core, and it is getting worse as a stricter code is spreading across the Islamic world; partly caused by the Arab Spring.
Filling Britain up with Muslims, and then providing them with a free hand to be sexist through multiculturalism, was an accident waiting to happen.
Imagine if Britain had filled itself up with South African apartheid supporters after the country’s liberation, then given them a free hand to be racist through multiculturalism. The liberal-left who have supported Islam’s right to act the way they do would be up in arms.
New Labour’s Multiculturalism Obsession
New Labour made ‘race’ such a big issue it overshadowed all the other prejudices: people forgot that race is just one prejudice, the same as class, sexuality and gender prejudice.
So the liberal-left and those who have grown up under New Labour’s brainwashing multiculturalism policy think that groups such as Islam have a right to be sexist and classist; it’s their culture; and that it is the underclass ‘chavs’ to blame for their position.
That is why the girls were not believed, and Oxford and other rings stopped earlier.
If the liberal left think this is just an anti-Islamic rant, then they should read Marc Latham’s books; and he’s not including links, as he will probably be accused of doing this for promotion.
If he’d wanted to make money it would have been much easier for him to follow the multicultural majority, as those who did got the jobs, while those who questioned it were drummed out of polite society.
Marc included a poem in his first poetry collection about the Jersey Haut-la-Garanne care home abuse scandal; with Jersey being his birthplace, and a place he tries to remember with rose-tinted memories.
Likewise, Werewolf of Oz‘s background theme is about the deportation of British underclass children to slavery and abuse in commonwealth countries up to the late twentieth-century.
So Marc has been trying to advocate for the poor, vulnerable and disenfranchised for a long time. That is one of the main reasons he was a 1980s socialist, who never trusted or bowed down to the elite capitalist system.
He thinks it’s ironic that as the care homes have been starting to be uncovered and cleaned up, there are ‘mainly Islamic’ gangs waiting outside targeting them.
And also that the people celebrating Thatcher’s death recently, are the ones most likely to have been defending and providing cover for the gangs targetting the main social victims of Thatcher, Blair and Brown’s political policies.
And now Cameron’s government is also neglecting and persecuting the poor… but at least you expect it from them!
