Not quite their summer of love

WHEN politicians and social engineers remake a society, enlist academics to justify it and pay bureaucrats to prosecute those who disagree, this is what happens:


The English Defence League on parade -- an extraordinarily long parade. Some 45 years ago, Enoch Powell warned of this. But he was a racist and not to be heeded.

  1. When I was a youngster in the UK in the 70s and being Left Wing, essentially, required you to be a proper worker who got his hands dirty each day not a lawyer or a journalist or a university lecturer or anyone else on $100,000+ per year. Back then, 'cause I was a Working Class boy, I thought that old Tory Enoch Powell was a real racist and often argued the toss with my Middle Class parents-in-law to be.

    About ten years ago I read a biography of Powell and did some further research about him.
    Powell was simply brilliant... at everything.

    He was a published poet, a soldier, a politician, an academic (professor of Greek at the University of Sydney). He was one of only two men in the history of the British Army to rise from the rank of Private to that of Brigadier.

    Powell was no racist but he was a man with considerable foresight and the willingness to say what he thought without fear he was also the best prime minister Britain never had.

    For my part... it's amazing what forty years and a whole heap of life experience do to one's early and ill informed opinions.

    Look him up, I think you'll be surprised.

    Jesus right. Muhammad wrong.

    The problem Enoch Powell faced was that to the modern mind of so many, such a statement of absolutism cannot have any validity or basis in fact.

    But what if it simply does?

    What if materialism as a scientific assumption is incorrect and Darwin was only right at the level of speciation within kind?

    You, cannot defend the West without Christ - because without Him, the West did not exist.

    Enoch did what he could with the tools at hand. He couldn't fight relativism or Evolution and scientific or social theory.

    [Why Christians happen to be right but totally disorganized is a different set of questions]

  3. Even a cynic like me got manipulated by those who have hijacked the narrative - until I heard this rough-diamond interview from Tommy Robinson, whom "our HA!" ABC would not only sneer at, but dismiss as an extreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeme rrrrrrright wing Nazi Nut.

    For the 29. May this brave man had planned to do a walk of 17 miles across London, to raise money for the "charity" whose T-shirt the butchered English soldier wore as his throat was being slit.

    And you know what?

    These gutless little dhimmies refused the money collected.

    And you know what their excuse was?

    They would not take money from the EDL because they were an extreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeme rrrrhight wing political party.

    And you know what Tommy Robinson answered?

    "I'm gutted...but I will still walk".

    Oh yea, the (mis)name for that "charity" that would do our Left proud is "HelpforHeroes".

    Some help !!!

    Some Heroes!!!!!

    Prof, when extreme things are let happen, then extreme reactions occur.

    Too little has been done to stop extreme Islamists and their barbaric fascist ideologies in the UK and Europe and here.

    Rita - HelpforHeros should re-name itself to reflect its management style.

    HerosRnotUs perhaps?

  5. Nailed it Prof.

    This is how the war starts.

    The government protects the guilty so the citizens take the law into their own hands. If racists are the only group resisting then that's where people will go.

    How the war ends depends at which point the government changes sides and starts protecting the citizens.
