S-A-V-A-G-E-S by no other name

When I saw the news about the 84 year old French Priest having his throat cut by Islamist criminals I was at first speechless then my comments were and remain unprintable. I was angry.

ISIS have claimed "two of their soldiers" were responsible. There is no way on Earth these inhuman bastards can be be called soldiers.

They like the rest of their Islamist brethren are simply savages.

And like most ordinary people I have had enough.

There is an enemy within and no it's not every single Muslim before matters get out of hand, but there are more than enough of these barbarous types in our midst, let alone living in the Muslim world itself.

In Europe we have tolerated the spread of Islamist intolerance for too long. It's nothing to do with the way Muslims are treated in this country or France & Germany for that matter. Muslims are freer here than the countries they come from.

It isn't anything to do with our foreign policy as the far-left/strasserite/anti-imperialist brigade might have you believe as the act as apologists for these savages by blaming everyone and everything except the truth.

Islamism is a supremacist, intolerant, misogynist, bigoted and ultra-violent theology.

The time to fight back against these evil creed has never been greater.

There are organisations, a large number of Imams and others out there whose sole purpose is to spread this fascist creed.

Remember the cretins of CAGE who along with the support of so-called left John Rees of Counterfire had a press conference to describe the mass murderer Jihadi John as a nice man?  The National Union of Students is working with this group to stop "prevent", a government sponsored programme to stop extremism.

The NUS is full of idiots who believe supporting the Kurds against ISIS is Islamophobic" and their new Fuhrer President has initiated the prevention of Jews electing their own representative in the union. The anti-imperialists will appoint some quisling to do their dirty work.

Meanwhile in France, Belgium, Denmark and Sweden amongst others there are "no-go" areas into which the authorities will not go. These places are run by gangs of criminals and Islamists as if there is any point in differentiating between the two.

This must end. The rule of law must prevail. A section of society cannot exclude itself and those responsible for the violence in and emanating from these ghettos of hate must be be brought to heel.

The shouts of "Islamophobia" by the idiots of the left and their allies have undermined the fightback against Islamism.

It is not Islamophobic to criticise Islam. Neither is it racist. Islam can be criticised just like any other theology or political ideology. Islam is not a race. It is simply a man made idea and if anyone doesn't like that fact their propensity to violence shows what a false creed Islam is, let alone it's satanic succubus Islamism.

If my language offends so be it. I'm not the one cutting Priests throats and would never call for violence against Muslims. It is up to the Muslim world to grow up and join the twenty-first century and end the medieval barbarianism in their midst.

That means reform for those who insist in believing in a non-existent "god", though I would urge the abandonment of not just the false "Allah" but all gods.

There is only humanity. It's time to be human.

Musical Interlude: Megadeath: Holy War..The Punishment (w/lyrics)

"Holy Wars...The Punishment Due"

Brother will kill brother
Spilling blood across the land
Killing for religion
Something I don't understand

Fools like me who cross the sea
And come to foreign lands
Ask the sheep for their beliefs
Do you kill on God's command?

A country that's divided
Surely will not stand
My past erased, no more disgrace
No foolish naive stand

The end is near, it's crystal clear
Part of the master plan
Don't look now to Israel
It might be your homelands
Holy wars

Up on my podium, as the
Know-it-all scholar
Down in my seat of judgement
Gavel's bang, uphold the law
Up on my soapbox, a leader
Out to change the world
Down in my pulpit as the holier-than-thou
Could-be-messenger of God

Wage the war on organized crime
Sneak attacks, rappel down the rocks
Behind the lines
Some people risk to employ me
Some people live to destroy me
Either way they die, they die

They killed my wife and my baby
With hopes to enslave me
First mistake, last mistake
Paid by the alliance, to slay all the giants
Next mistake, no more mistakes

Fill the cracks in with judicial granite
Because I don't say it, don't mean I ain't thinking it
Next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away
I know what I said now I must scream
Of the overdose and the lack of mercy killings
Mercy killings, mercy killings, killings, killings, killings
Next thing you know they'll take my thoughts away

Sunday Supplement: DC Comic Movies coming your way

With Marvel superheroes making big bucks for Hollywood it was inevitable that Warner Brothers, the owners of DC Comics would start making movies about their heroes. It's been a long time since Christopher Reeve took to the skies as Superman or Michael Keaton fought Jack Nicholson's portrayal of the Joker and despite a couple of reboots, DC has yet to make the mark that Marvel has on the big screen.

Smallville 2001 logo.svg

DC has had success on the small screen with Smallville, which lasted an incredible 10 seasons and currently is making waves with The Flash, Green Arrow and Supergirl. The first of their attempts to revive their cinema franchise was Batman vs Superman, which despite grossing a lot of dollars met with mixed audience reactions. An extended DVD cut is shortly to be released with over 30 minutes of extra material which is said by the director to "improve" the film. It's on my shopping list!

The two titular heroes, Batman and Superman, are confronting each other, with the film's logo behind them, and the film's title, credits, release date and billing below.

Meanwhile August sees the release of Suicide Squad. Now this looks good and these characters are definitely NOT superheroes. In fact they are a bunch of villains which if it follows the comics plot will see them forced to do "black ops" work for the US government. They don't have much choice really, Amanda Waller the Director of the Suicide Squad has placed little bombs in their heads.....

New Suicide Squad Suicide Squad

That "lady" at the front is the Jokers self-appointed girlfriend Harley Quinn and she's, well quite insane, but then she did work as a doctor at Arkham Asylum.....

Then there's Wonder Woman played by the gorgeous Israeli actress Gal Gadot.

A former IDF soldier she certainly seems to fill the role of an Amazon princess.


The new film will be swinging it's way to a theatre near you in June next year!

And last but not least a special trailer for the Justice League has been shown at Comic-Con. DC's heroes unite to fight a foe that takes all their might to defeat and includes a new addition to their ranks Cyborg, who originally appeared as a member of the Teen Titans in the comic books but has been moved for reasons of "diversity".


Justice League hits theatres in November 2017, so a wee bit of a wait for this one.

There's plenty of other DC movies in the pipeline. Watch this space.

Did someone say....Shazam!

Tibet's religious freedom under attack from China

Beyond Belief Logo

One of the worlds most oppressed nations is Tibet, conquered by the Chinese Communists in 1950/51, is being colonised by Han Chinese in attempt to make Tibetans a minority within their own country. One of the ways the Tibetan people hang on to their identity is through the medium of their religion. This too is under attack. 

The BBC reports:

The London-based Free Tibet group says demolitions at the site began on Wednesday and a number of people living there have been evicted.

It follows an order last month by the local authorities to cut the number of Larung Gar residents by half to 5,000.

Chinese officials are reported to have cited overcrowding concerns.

Larung Gar is said to be the biggest Tibetan Buddhist institute in the world.

The academy and monastery, founded in 1980, sprawls over a mountainside in Sertar county in eastern Tibet, and attracts thousands of Buddhist monks and nuns who wish to study there.

On top of this China intends to appoint the next Dalai Lama. The Free Tibet Campaign writes:

In defiance of the deeply held wishes of the Tibetan people, China's government plans to appoint its own candidate as the next Dalai Lama. The role has historically been filled by identifying the reincarnation of the previous Dalai Lama after his death. The current 14th Dalai Lama has made clear that no Chinese appointed Dalai Lama will be the legitimate leader of Tibetan Buddhism.

China already punishes Tibetans for practising their religion as they choose. Its aim is to force a puppet Dalai Lama on Tibetans to neutralise Tibetan Buddhism's independence and cement its hold on Tibet. It also hopes to undermine worldwide support for the Tibetan cause. Interfering in the selection of the Dalai Lama is a political act, a profound insult to the Tibetan people's culture, desires and beliefs and a gross abuse of their religious freedom. It is vital that China understands that its plan will fail.

The British Road to the Gulag

The battle for the heart & soul of the Labour took a new twist tonight as the self appointed "Labour Representation Committee decided to disown one of their own candidates for the Labour Party National Executive Committee. Their statement reads:

The reason being she had the temerity to vote for the suspension of Brighton & Hove CLP due to a number of allegations that require full & proper investigation, support the increase in fees for casting a vote in the leadership elections and support the suspension and removal of a variety of unwanted individuals such as Tony Greenstein from the Party.

The fact she may be looking at the needs of the party as a whole rather than the factional interests of the LRC and others seems to escape the "comrades".

I found the phrase "too late to disrupt the NEC elections" a little disturbing. It, along with their intolerance of individual independence says s lot about the way the far left operates as a "party within a party".

The Labour Representation Committee is a bit of an oddball faction in labour which attracts all sorts to it's events and meetings. One of the groups that turns up is the pro-North Korean dictatorship New Communist Party who sit uneasily alongside pretend anarcho-communists such as Chris Ford and Trots like the Alliance for Workers Liberty.

Unsavoury is the politest word one can use to describe the rabble that is the LRC.

When the comrades have finished with everyone outside their club, they will as history always shows turn on each other.......

Sometimes conspiracy theories are true.....

Even before the advent of the Internet there were wild conspiracy theories about the Illuminati, UFO's, Zionists, Catholics and more. With the advent of social media people just seem to make up any old shit and it gets lapped up by those looking for reasons to hate or malign. But sometimes conspiracies are real.

A clear example is the recent attempted coup in Turkey. In order for this to take place there had to be a conspiracy to plan the takeover so the reaction of the Turkish government to deal with it's enemies who took up arms against it seems  a "normal" reaction if somewhat extreme given Erdogan's dictatorial propensities.

However what is odd is the scope of the purges. Rounding up the officers and soldiers taking part is one thing but Erdogan's list for punishment seems to be going far deeper than would seem necessary to deal with the immediate problem. Policemen, Judges and Generals, well some may indeed be part of the conspiracy but the numbers involved seem far too high for a coup that had so little support when it came to it.

Then there's the sacking of thousands of teachers and every Dean in higher education.

Wait a minute. There's something seriously wrong here.

One thing is for certain. All these thousands of people were already on a list before the coup took place. In other words Erdogan was either preparing for a purge, probably piecemeal over time or was simply just waiting for an excuse or provocation to implement the mass suppression of all those who even just might oppose him.

Some might even say the coup was a godsend.

Could Erdogan have been a malevolent guiding hand behind the coup himself? After all only the dictator has benefited....

They'd say that really was a wild conspiracy theory. But they would say that wouldn't they?

Owen who? No thanks!

Over the last week or so I have received emails from various lobbying groups telling me that I have X number of days to save Labour and urging me to sign up to the party to get rid of Corbyn. Now apparently there is just 24 hours (and counting down) for me to do this.

Then came the latest bombshell in the news. The woman chosen to save the party has dropped out the race in favour of someone who is called Owen Smith. No idea of his background to be honest but he tells us that he is "normal" (whatever that is supposed to mean) and has a family. And?

Now I have to admit there have been times when I would rather elect the office cat as Labour leader than continue with that damned fool Corbyn, but politics is a serious business and whilst Angela Eagle did not particularly motivate me, at least I'd not only heard of her but had some idea where she stood on most issues.

Owen Smith?

No idea.

Yes I can look him up on this Internet thing I spend so much time on but frankly I shouldn't have to. So should I spend £25 on joining an organisation I don't really want to just for the privilege of voting for the replacement candidate for the office cat I would have preferred.

I think not.

The reason should be glaringly obvious.

Labour isn't in danger of splitting. It already has but like the proverbial zombie doesn't realise it's dead.

There are two parties now (not) co-existing within the shell that once was HM Opposition. Corbyn and his mix of Trots Stalinists and neo-Strasserites with a large smattering of Israel-haters who if aren't actual anti-Semites might just as well be and the other corner almost everybody else. There are a few sitting on the sidelines but frankly that's it.

It will be impossible for either side to continue with the other no matter who wins (and I think it'll be Corbyn unless the trade union barons suddenly wake up and realise what they've done) so the internecine warfare will carry on ad infinitum.

I don't want to be in a party like that and certainly couldn't vote for it just like most other people who despair about politicians more than I do but go down the pub instead of venting their frustration on-line.

The MPs really need to cut their losses now and push Corbyn and his rump onto the backbenches. A split this time would be stronger than the SDP ever was.

Then they need a statesman to lead the new party. Hillary Benn is the man for me, with Caroline Flint as deputy.

That I'll spend twenty-five quid (or more) on.

Not Labour. It's finished.
