The British Left and the “debate” about free speech

Feb 22, 2015 by

Identity politics has created an army of vicious, narcissistic cowards Brendan O’Neill, Spiked I think the more we’ve made the personal political, the more we define our social and political outlook with reference to what’s in our underpants or what colour our skin is, the more we experience every criticism of our beliefs as an attack on our very personhood, our souls, our right to exist. The problem here is the terrifying wrapping together of the biological and the political, the packaging up...

Politicized science

Feb 17, 2015 by

The lessons of the Galileo affair re: global warming, vaccines and homosexuality. By Phil Lawler, LifeSite: Sometime in grammar school, we all learned the rules of the scientific method, right? You remember how they go: First, form a hypothesis. Next, devise an experiment to test the hypothesis. If the experiment seems to confirm the hypothesis, launch a public-relations campaign to ridicule anyone who questions it, and call for an end to government funding of any scientists who disagree....

For those in positions of power, kowtowing to the perpetually offended is the path of least resistan...

Feb 13, 2015 by

By Virginia Hale, Breitbart: It seems whenever there’s a prominent appointment to be made, a “progressive” comes to fill the post, advancing politicised minority agendas that the majority of the British public has no interest in. In the case of the Director of Public Prosecutions, Alison Saunders, it’s become clear over her year and a third in office that she is a shining example of this trend. Perhaps it’s because unless one is a fully paid-up member of the politically correct, their time in...

A group of 40 protesters gathers outside the premises, shouting and blocking Miliband from coming outside. The local police inform him that, for his own safety, he will have to remain inside the building and abandon his plans to speak. “That’s it, Mr Miliband. You can’t...

In the Rotherham madhouse, PC multiculturalism trumps child safety every time

Feb 6, 2015 by

By David Keighley, Conservative Woman: The Louise Casey report into Rotherham child sexual exploitation and abuse is one of the most harrowing and damning documents about British public life ever to appear. In essence, this grim catalogue of malignancy demonstrates that the octopus-tentacles of multi-cultural orthodoxy have penetrated every recess of administration to the extent that it swamps and trumps decency and common sense. In effect, it facilitates and condones barbaric behaviour to the...

The march of the new political correctness

Feb 5, 2015 by

by Damian Thompson, Spectator: I wonder how many of you know that you’re cis. Not very many, I’m guessing. So let me break this gently. You are almost certainly cis. It is short for ‘cisgendered’, which means that you ‘identify’ with the gender you were assigned at birth. To put it in everyday language, you were born male and are still male, or were born female and are still female. Roughly 99.7 per cent of human beings — including gays, lesbians and bisexuals — are cisgender. The rest are...
