It’s not an exaggeration to compare the methods used by the new ‘woke movement’ to those of Mao’s Red Guards

Jul 19, 2020 by

by John Gray, Mailonline: Today we are no longer living in a free society. Instead, we are ruled by those who try to enforce their extreme views by shaming and ruining those who think differently. It is not far-fetched to compare the methods of this ‘woke movement’ to those of Chairman Mao’s Red Guards, who terrorised the Chinese people half a century ago. The so-called ‘cancel culture’ – publicly shaming and trying to undermine the professional standing of anyone who deviates from ever-more...

Our fearful leaders are failing to stand up to the radical woke minority

Jul 13, 2020 by

by Nick Timothy, Telegraph: The Left’s march through the institutions will continue until the majority organises its fight back. How have we allowed things to get this far? How is it that a minority of extreme activists can dictate to politicians, broadcasters, universities, firms and the wider world what can and cannot be said, and who can and cannot say it? Why do they get to determine the true meaning of words written or spoken by others? As the mainstream grapples with these questions,...

Jun 23, 2020 by

by Ed West, UnHerd: This year we’ve all learned about a number of terms we might otherwise have quite happily never known: “R number”, “underlying conditions” or “herd immunity”, to name just three.

Queen Victoria statue defaced: #VictoriaMustFall

Jun 10, 2020 by

by Archbishop Cranmer: The mob has now risen against a Queen Victoria statue in Leeds, which is perfectly reasonable considering she ruled the Empire under whose aegis all those slave-traders flourished and made their fortunes. If statues of Edward Colston and Robert Milligan must fall, then so must that of the Queen of the United Kingdom and Empress of India whose imperial patronage of white-privilege they enjoyed. ‘Murderer’, ‘Slave owner’, ‘Slag’, ‘Black Lives Matter’, ‘Racist’, ‘Whore’:...

Australia’s sinister gender agenda

May 21, 2020 by

by Dr Kevin Donnelly, The Conservative Woman: WHEN detailing the origins of the culture wars, Michael Gove in his 2006 book Celsius 7/7 refers to Germany’s Frankfurt School and the decision in the 1930s to overthrow capitalism by focusing on the long march through the institutions. Gove writes: ‘The thinkers of the Frankfurt School revised Marxism as primarily a cultural rather than an economic movement’ and ‘instead of anger at traditional capitalism, scorn was directed at the reigning value...
