    Today Trump’s big rally will reveal whether the Right, and indeed the sensible majority, finally start to push back against the forces of anarchy and violence.

    GW I don’t blame him, questions the far left bbc racists are not asking:

    The avowed aims of the British arm of Black Lives Matter are revealed: Abolish the police, smash capitalism… and close all prisons

    Indeed, while most donors and supporters may assume Black Lives Matter UK exists to lobby against racism, the group’s leaders, who remain largely anonymous, can use its financial muscle to pursue a smorgasbord of far-Left aims.

    Some are extreme and many appear to have nothing to do with advancing racial equality.

    On the group’s GoFundMe page, a statement outlining the Black Lives Matter UK policy agenda was uploaded a few days ago. It explains that the organisation intends to be ‘guided by a commitment to dismantle imperialism, capitalism, white supremacy, patriarchy and the state structures that disproportionately harm black people in Britain and around the world’.

    The Express reports a foul incident in a local park in Southsea where a group of disgusting female sub-humans treated a defenceless young woman to a severe beating breaking her jaw and rendering her unconscious.

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8440237/Two-women-repeatedly-kick-woman-head.html

    The tactic of jumping on her head whilst motionless on the ground, defenceless, was straight from the Antifa – BLM rule book.

    Also in the footage are several male citizens, all dressed in the usual military black clothing with hoodies, as they gleefully film the incident on their phones. It’s impossible to describe these creatures as “men” in any sense of the word.

    A lovely import from the USA which will probably grow in the UK now.

    I guess the police are waiting for the victim to regain consciousness so they can question and charge her for deliberately soiling the attackers trainers.

    Also I have been unable to find any mention of this from the BBC, Guardian or Independent. Wonder why?

      Beyond the violence, the forest of mobiles aloft at such events is beyond sickening.

          There are so many ways democratic systems are flawed it is hard to know where to begin addressing which one and why.

          But a few areas I treasure are free speech and the secret ballot. Both now under threat.

          However, in the #politicsoftheleastbad infirmament I know what alternatives appeal even less.

          And I see them, out and proud, a lot now. And am concerned.

          Because no, I am not keen on mob rule, or any cute versions of it in various manifestations cropping up using causes du jour upon which to piggy back. XR, BLM, antifa, etc. With manifestos oddly not held to account by supportive entities that should know better or are happy to be included.

          I vote, in secret, and no one knows how I voted.

          This vote, and others, are counted, and those presenting the most compelling arguments and least awful records prevail under previously agreed systems, and get several years to see though what they claimed as aims able to achieve.

          Even such time periods are however seldom enough to see tankers of state swing much, and results often are insufficient to satisfy, and a new set of clowns get in. Et, repetez.

          But it’s the best so far, and can work at times.

          What does not work is if minorities, especially when often powerful and establishment, decide they don’t like results and continue to work to undermine them.

          Especially if, when thwarted in surprising setbacks despite previously trusted means, doing so over periods of years and, once frustrated, resorting to stirring up the mobs to profit (they think) from chaos.

          Trouble is policy by mob is not over periods of years. It can be matters of days, especially if boosted by credulous, cynical and/or complicit media.

          And trying to run anything, much less a country, by noisy mob rule daily vs. silent majority every four or five years, is not going to work.

          Worse, trying to force it to work will result in escalating chaos which, even if successful in imposing the theoretical ‘ideal’ alternative wished for, will be impossible to correct ever again using previously treasured peaceful means.

          A few, very few political leaders of actual statepersonship grasp this, the thick do not, but now even a few of the smart but shifty type currently once prone to jumping on bandwagons for personal advancemen are catching on.

          You see, even they have realised being the the new top banana by any means of a rotten banana tree still ends badly, quickly.

    Even when it has used Twitter to campaign against racism, @BLMUK has sometimes focused on curious targets. In recent years, it has attacked everyone from Oxfam (‘big charities are nothing more than colonisers for the 21st century’) to Sir David Attenborough.

    The group accused an episode of his 2018 TV series Dynasties, on chimpanzees, of being racist because the BBC naturalist complained that habitat destruction due to overpopulation was threatening the species with extinction.

    Black Lives Matter UK has also used the social network to express support for the so-called BDS movement,which calls for a boycott of Israel over its treatment of Palestinians. Last year, the group called for the Eurovision Song Contest to be moved from ‘Apartheid Israel’.

    Many Jewish groups regard the BDS movement as anti-Semitic because they believe it unfairly singles out Israel, the world’s only Jewish state, for scrutiny that is not applied to other regimes.

    Elsewhere on the BLMUK Facebook page, in an apparently genuine mission statement that reads like a parody in places, the group declares that it is opposed to ‘homophobia, lesbophobia, biphobia, queerphobia, transphobia, sexism, misogyny, misogynoir, enbyphobia, ableism, racism, anti-Blackness, Islamophobia, whorephobia, ageism, fatphobia, eugenics, discrimination, stereotypes,

    Bizarrely, Black Lives Matter UK is entirely anonymous, offering no transparency on who controls it or where its money will be spent.

    Despite having existed since July 2016, when its Twitter and Facebook accounts were created, it has no physical address or website. It has no formal governing structure or constitution, no chief executive, chairman or board of trustees. It is not registered as a charity or as a non-profit organisation. It has never filed accounts and its spending has never been audited.

    At Companies House, a firm called Black Lives Matter Limited was set up this month by one David Wilks-Carmichael, who calls himself a ‘venture capital consultant’ — on paper, a strangely capitalistic profession for anyone associated with anti-capitalists.

    Mr Wilks-Carmichael has been a director of 17 companies, of which 15 have been dissolved and only one has ever filed accounts.

    The statement also promised its spending ‘will be made public in the spirit of transparency and accountability in due course’. As to who is behind the organisation, it claimed its leaders were busy dealing with ‘emergency legal matters’ and ‘the hostility of far-Right groups’ which represent ‘a genuine threat to our safety’.

    It would therefore not be publishing their names but insisted they were all ‘Black (not politically black, Black and of the African and Caribbean diaspora)’.

    However, a source recently told The Guardian newspaper that Black Lives Matter UK is being run by ‘a core of around ten activists’ including a man called Joshua Virasami, ‘who has been with the movement since its incarnation’.

    Mr Virasami, a musician, was involved in Black Lives Matter UK’s first protest, in August 2015, when he led a group who were arrested for blocking an access road to Heathrow airport holding a ‘Black Lives Matter’ banner.

    According to police, the demo caused ‘utter chaos’. In response, the group said: ‘The everyday disruption that is suffered by those who experience racism in Britain is as much an inconvenience as not being able to get to your flight on time.’

    When the case reached court, Virasami was ordered to pay a £441 fine. His nine co-defendents, all of whom denied wilful obscruction (but were found guilty) included one Ewa Jasiewicz, a former Guardian writer who achieved notoriety in 2010 when she spray-painted ‘Liberate all ghettos’ and ‘Free Gaza and Palestine’ on one of the few remaining walls of the Warsaw ghetto, where tens of thousands of Jews died in World War II.

    Ms Jasiewicz, who once called for Israeli politicians to be ‘bumped off’, made further headlines in 2018 when it emerged that she was scheduled to speak at Jeremy Corbyn’s party conference in Brighton. Her appearance was eventually dropped, amid a noisy row over anti-Semitism, after Labour’s deputy leader Tom Watson claimed it would offend ‘taste and decency’. It is unclear whether she is still involved with Black Lives Matter UK.

    Jasiewicz is white, as were all nine activists who took part in Black Lives Matter UK’s second major demonstration by chaining themselves together on the runway of London’s City Airport in September 2016.

      apparently they are going to ‘interview’ her about CV19 as well as BLM.

      How clever are the BBC to realise that the answers to all our problems lie with a dysfunctional Aspergersy teenager from a foreign country who knows absolutely nothing useful about these issues.

      But further to my earlier post, in a funny way perhaps we should all be quite happy. The Labour Party report into their election failure cites over-reliance on young graduates and metropolitan city dwellers, the very groups the BBC continually target with their BLM , Greta, and general woke Guardianista coverage. By continually talking to themselves about themselves in their own metrobubble and having nothing whatever to say to the rest of us, they are ensuring their continued failure.

    As a rule of thumb I don’t attend folk dances or try to understand Balkan politics.

    BBC: ‘Serbia election: Vote in EU candidate state scorned as sham’

    Thankfully, no longer our problem. But let’s see what they have to say, the BBC that is, because typically it’s all about the BBC’s editorial line.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-53107011

    Kicking off with an embarrassingly naff football analogy our Guy Delauney, BBC News, Balkans correspondent, plays on with the usual BBC on-side rules.

    ‘But while Liverpool FC should shortly confirm their first title in 30 years, Aleksandar Vucic would simply be extending a dominant run which already stretches back the best part of a decade.’

    Nope, I’m still not interested.

    ‘…despite his successes, the president’s past means that a significant proportion of Serbians will never accept him as their leader.’

    Ah, the now familiar story of the permanent resistance.

    ‘…dominance of the media means voters cannot “hear something different”.’

    Well I never…!

    ‘… the institutions don’t want to hear what citizens are demanding”.’

    Ah-ha…

    ‘…they don’t have a lot of faith in the opposition to create greater legitimacy than the party that’s ruling now.”‘

    Well, I can understand that concern.

    ‘…even before the ostensibly centre-left DS and SSP joined other parties including the far-right nationalists, Dveri, in the “Alliance for Serbia”. The boycott means the palatability of this strange arrangement will not be put to the test.’

    I think I can guess what it is that the BBC would find strange and bugaboo about this alliance – that’s your quiz question there – no prizes, obviously.
    One little clue – it rhymes with the word starlight.

    I notice the BBC are dusting off Greta ready for her comeback tour to help flagellate us with the Climate whip again.

    Not only that, they are trying to link her actions up with BLM and Antifa as forces for progress and good, no doubt to impart holiness on the thugs as well as giving her much-needed publicity.

    It’s beginning to look like the BBC have realised that Labour don’t have a snowflake in hell’s chance of any real power so they might as well throw their lot in with Anarchy in preference to a Conservative Government.

    Much the same thing going on with the media in the States with Trump etc.

    For all those self righteously angry people attending the BLM events this weekend, perhaps they might like to reflect for a moment or two (before they start rioting and ripping down some offensive statue) on just how much they owe the white man…

    Without Whitey they wouldn’t be travelling by plane train or automobile, they’d be walking…The white man invented the steam engine, the internal combustion engine and the aerolplane. There are no black inventions.

    They wouldn’t live in air conditioned, centrally heated houses, they’d be squatting in crudely constructed mud huts. There is no historical architecture from sub-Saharan Africa.

    They wouldn’t be getting their highly nutritious food from supermarkets, they’d be throwing spears at buffalos and foraging for edible berries. Most sub Saharan Africans were both tribal and nomadic. They couldn’t even farm. And look at what’s happened to both Rhodesia and South Africa in recent years.

    Oh, and a bunch of appeasing and cowardly self regarding, millionaire boneheads bending the knee don’t speak for the silent majority. Most of us despise this action. It revolts us.

    However, I acknowledge that, although you live in a civilised country, with all the astonishing benefits that the white man has created, all the wealth, comforts and the myriad of opportunities that white civilisation has offered you, none of these compensates for evolution.

    Or the lack of it…

    Maybe I am going mad – But on my way to work yesterday I turned the radio onto Classic FM at about 7.50am for “More Breakfast Music” with Tim Lihoreau and normally hum along to Sousas “Liberty Bell” which is a regular feature of Friday morning and puts me in a good mood for the rest of the day.

    As far as I can tell it was not played. I looked on the playlist when I got home it was not there.

    Could it be that the cowardly woke managers at Classic FM have now decided to “cancel” Sousa’s Liberty Bell due to its association with US armed forces marching bands (you know the same ones that died in their thousands on the beaches of Normandy) or maybe it is the word “liberty” that they just dont like.

        The media luvvies always more than happy to throw away principles for another day on the job. We have seen it with newspapers too. How long before newspapers online completely ban comments sections – we already have “preapproved” comments on anything controversial and our so called “conservative” Prime Minister barely says a word.

    BBC in a nutshell..
    1. Black Lives Matter
    2. Climate Change
    3. Covid19
    4. Trump

    It is like a student protest group meeting up every week to keep discussing the same gripes they have and then checking the funds to see how many placards they can make.

      Had you noticed, Tabs, that pre-printed placards are not quite the vogue they used to be. They rather hampered the perception that ‘outpourings of grief, anger, etc.’ were quite the ‘spontaneous eruptions’ of indignation or offence that they appeared to be, mainly since they used to take two or three days to order, prepare, produce and distribute.

      Now, it is ‘de riguer’ to have hand-written placards – albeit that the phrases on them are so often the same that the ‘sponteneity’ is still not quite what it appears to be.

    President Trump his holding his ””’controversial”” rally in Tulsa today. Many hundreds of peaceful protesters will be going there to present rational and carefully thought out arguments to Trump’s rabid KKK supporting waycists. Could be trouble at mill.

    Expect a biased and negative report from the BBC.

    But I urge you all to watch the predictable Trump hating report from bitchy bitch Siobhan Kennedy on Channel 4. news. Each night she is given a few minutes to turn every report from the US into a display of her Trump derangement syndrome. In comparison the BBC is a paragon of objectivity.

    But are we entering a world where democracy does not matter, and parliament/Congress are being replaced by mob rule in the streets, ‘celebrities’ and anarchists, who can destroy whatever they like, because police don’t feel like enforcing the law?
    A world where people WITHIN parliament and Congress can ally themselves with the street mob, for motives of their own? No problem, the public keep paying your salary.
    I notice that only ‘equality’, not ‘democracy’ or ‘freedom’ are the concerns.
    You can mention freedom, but only if you can link it to slavery, and hey presto, you are back to ‘equality’.
    But if you think that even ‘equality’, a key socialist issue is the goal, you are still wrong.
    Because equality will now be defined by what the mob thinks it is. And they rather like Madame Guillotine or the gulag.
    So now is the time to do more than merely post on here to tell everyone we agree that beeb is a subversive, dangerous, ant-British, Globalist, set- up, which will only find out what mob rule is about when people enter broadcast house and chuck them out, cos they don’t fulfill the requirements of the revolution.

    Further to the ‘Greta’ comments above, I heard the segment on the BBC Today programme earlier.

    I have not seen or heard the full ‘interview’, so one thing leapt out at me from what I heard. I hesitate to call the segment an ‘interview’, since I heard not one question put to Ms Thunberg, so I have no idea to what she was responding….all I heard was a series of soundbites, interspersed by a beeboid setting the scene for the next soundbite. I am willing to bet there was not one scientific question put to this demented little girl, that there were no difficult or serious questions put to her, no follow-ups to any ‘answers’ she might have given to real, probing questions….i.e. the perfect set-up for an activist to get their angst across with no challenge whatsoever, but apparently with some authority. Typical BBC ‘interview’ with activist, in other words..

    Compare and contrast this with the current Democrat contender in the upcoming US Presidential Election…… actually, there is very little difference at all, none of the MSM in America has even looked at Joe Biden with anything other than adoratrion since he entered the priimaries – he hasn’t had a press conference in months now, he’s hidden in a bunker somewhere in his basement, and only occasionally makes statements to media (no real questions either, you note).

    But probably the only difference between them is that La Thunberg has actually memorised her little soundbites, and Biden can’t remember what his soundbites are, after the first few words.

    A recent poll shows 55% of Americans think Biden probably has dementia. By definition, given the political split in the US, that percentage must contain a fair whack of Democrats.

    So there you have it – the BBC and MSM in general want a very sad and patently psychologically troubled teenager as queen of the world, and a sad, and patently senile old man as leader of the free world.

    What a world we live in these days.

      richard -Sad, but to understand it, you gotta realise, there’s nothing new under the sun.
      In the seventies someone sent me a book by a guy called Clem Sunter.
      He wrote about the ‘rich old millions’ and the ‘poor young billions’. I remember thinking: what if the billions decide to flood the millions and GRAB?
      China and much of Asia, was still in the latter group.
      Today, when China and Asia have pulled themselves up by their own boot straps, and are largely melting into the former group, there remains one continent, (perhaps two-with qualifications)- that has/ have not managed to do that. So it/they have to think of other strategies.

      I’ve just read the article about the Greta ‘interview’ on the BBC News web page. It is described as an interview, but it simply lists a series of statements by La Thunberg….. pretty much as I suspected it would – not one single question of any substance appears to have been asked.

      Noticed there was a ‘listen’ link – clicked on it – it was, indeed, a ‘fluff’ piece by the beeboid ‘interviewer’ along the lines of…. ‘Tell me about the UN meeting you sailed the Atlantic to attend’, ‘Tell me about how you travelled the US in Arnold Schwarzeneger’s car’. The adoration, fawning, and obsequiousness was strong with that one!

      Answers were, of course, just a litany of her homilies and her little activist soundbites – I suspect she has been well coached by her parents not to actually answer any searching questions – and I might even bet that they had absolute control over the questions to be asked beforehand.

    (after having written 3 long paragraphs on here an hour ago, and then suddenly have them disappear – I went off for a gin, I shall attempt again……)

    Walking the dog in the park this morning, I saw two young white mums with their mixed race toddlers, and this got me thinking.

    A few decades ago, if a mixed relationship got off the ground, then the parents would have advised caution for the sake of any potential offspring, highlighting the problems they would encounter as they grew up in later life. But clearly, many did not heed this advice because we now have in our population many mixed race who are a certain age, are the result of those moments of passion, and who are being extremely vocal against the white half of their parentage for the racial abuse they have/are experiencing. If anything, their ire should be aimed at their mixed parents, for helping to create racial tensions where none needed to be. It would be different if the dominant colouring of mixed race was white, but it isn’t, so as a result many of our angry mixed racers, including sobbing celebrities on videos are telling tales of the racial abuse experienced growing up.

    Now, in these times, mixed relationships (or couplings without a relationship) are more widespread; but still lessons haven’t been learned, nor will they ever be, that bringing a mixed race baby into the world is landing a child with the biggest bag of problems they will ever face.

      Only one governing elite. The militant blacks think if you kneel, raise your fist and a few other things (see US cities) you’ll be there.
      When it’s too late, the Chinese will show them who’s really in the elite. Cos it takes a little more than kneeling and burning, you actually have to build stuff (even if you do have to do a little IP stealing…although it has to be said, the Chinese have a history of inventing and building.)
      For the moment, however, the Chinese are not quite there yet. The object of the militant animosity are the other inventors and builders. And they have been befuddled, bewitched and bewildered by their elite and MSM to hand it all over gradually.
      Their elite will find out too, when it is too late, that they’re not up there either.

    So a black girl comes in as a candidate for the position – we went through the interview – 45 minutes – then after the black girl left the lady interviewer and me gave her marks separately .
    Then we compared notes . I’d given the black girl great marks – the kind that would have given her the job .the lady marking with laid Into me with the HR version of WTF – and then laid out in detail why the black candidate was awful and didn’t deserve the position. I shrunk . She was right. If you haven’t got there yet – the lady doing the recruitment with me was black . I was white …

    A tip for anyone venturing near the extreme far left blm mobs today. Don’t let them catch you on your own because they specialise in gangs of 20-30 attacking a single white person.

    Do the blm really think footballers all support them because they ‘take the knee’ (grovel) and wear the blm slogan on their backs.
    They all do it out of fear as not grovelling or wearing the blm slogan means the end of their career. Some do it for virtue signalling but I would bet the vast majority disagree with all matters blm but dare not stand alone when the rest of the team is showing their submission.

            “Twitter is a private platform, so it can exclude who it wants”
            BS The school playground is for everyone,
            it’s UNIVERSAL
            The headmaster has no right to on the instructions of the schoolbully gang pick on some kids and remove them cos they don’t like them, say cos of their skin colour, hairstyle or political views.
            Unless by proper process he demonstrates the kid has crossed free speech lines by things like inciting violence or paedophilia.

    BBC reports on an anti racism demo in Glasgow devoting much space to the ‘far right’.
    It won’t be long before Julia Hartley Brewer gets in on the act. She has been fitted with a device that makes her add ‘far right’ into every sentence
    But seriously folks. If you think your views will be interpreted as far right, for the moment at least, stay away from BLM virtue signalling events. These tossers are destroying the left faster than a thousand Corbyns. Let them have total media attention.

      In BBC Scotland speak, the “Far Right” = people who don’t support the SNP and their Irish cousins.

      There weren’t many such people at George Square today, and those that did show face were hectored by an RMT official who spoke at the rally.

      The Goon, sorry ‘Green’, Brigade did, however, turn up. For those who don’t know them, they’re self-styled Celtic ultras hell-bent (literally, methinks) on pursuing an anti-British (and anti-Israeli) agenda.

      The presence of said Goons was deemed undesirable by the Rozzers, and thus they were escorted away from George Square.

      And that’s pretty much that. Unless, of course, you’re part of the BBC Fake News team..
