#Mark Steyn

Who is #Mark Steyn? The Wiki gives his a very decent write up as a cultural commentator, advocate of Free Speech and an honest commentator on the Ethnic Fouling, the flood of Third World parasites flooding the West. A fair sample of his position is at #Mark Steyn, Cole Porter and Free Speech. He is very knowledgeable about popular music and its people. But he moved on when 9/11 made him realise that music was one part of Western Civilization that is under threat from Islam.

blair bill against religious chat

 

When many Council members were arrested in the late 1960s, Banana and his family fled to the United States and did not return until 1975. Banana was arrested on his return but was released a year later, kept under house arrest, and then allowed to participate in Abel Muzorewa's plans for the country. However, he abandoned that effort and joined ZANU (led by Robert Mugabe), which was dedicated to overthrowing the Smith administration. Returning to Rhodesia in December 1976, Banana was arrested once more for his support of ZANU; upon the appointment of Christopher Soames as British governor, he was released from prison.[4]

Under the country's new constitution Banana became the first president in 1980.[1] In 1982 a law was passed forbidding citizens from making jokes about his name.[4][5] In 1987, his largely ceremonial[6] post was taken over by Mugabe, who made himself executive president. Banana then became a diplomat for the Organisation of African Unity and head of the religious department at the University of Zimbabwe. He played a large role in bringing the two major groups of independence fighters, ZANU and ZAPU, together to form the Zimbabwe African National Union - Patriotic Front, a merger that took place in 1988.[citation needed]

Sodomy charges and imprisonment

In 1997, Banana was arrested in Zimbabwe on charges of sodomy, following accusations made during the murder trial of his former bodyguard, Jefta Dube.[7] The charges related to allegations from the state prosecutor that Banana had misused his power while he was president to coerce numerous men in positions of service (ranging from domestic staff to security guards, and even members of sports teams for whom he had acted as referee) into accepting sexual advances. Banana was found guilty of eleven charges of sodomy, attempted sodomy and indecent assault in 1998. He denied all charges, saying that homosexuality is "deviant, abominable and wrong", and the allegations made against him were "pathological lies" intended to destroy his political career.[6] Janet Banana later discussed and accepted her husband's alleged homosexuality, even though she considered the charges against him to be politically motivated.[8]

He fled to South Africa whilst released on bail before he could be imprisoned, apparently believing Mugabe was planning his death. He returned to Zimbabwe in December 1998, after a meeting with Nelson Mandela, who convinced him to face the ruling. Banana was sentenced on 18 January 1999 to ten years in jail, nine years suspended, and was also defrocked. He actually served six months in an open prison before being released in January 2001. His wife sought political asylum in Great Britain in October 2000, under a preexisting accord.[4] His son Michael Thabo and Michael's wife Caroline Banana were the subject of a 2013 BBC documentary "Britain on the Fiddle"[9][10][11] investigating fraud from the state in the United Kingdom.

The Macchiato Chorus

 

By M A R K STEYN
April 21, 2008

Our lesson today comes from the songwriter Frank Loesser:

"Praise The Lord And Pass The Ammunition."

Or as Barack Obama and his San Francisco pals would put it: God and guns. Loesser got the phrase from Howell Forgy, a naval chaplain at Pearl Harbor, who walked the decks of the New Orleans under Japanese bombardment exhorting his comrades. When the line came to Loesser's ears, he turned it into a big hit song of the Second World War:

"Praise the Lord and swing into position

Can't afford to sit around a-wishin'…" — which some folks sang as "Can't afford to be a politician." Indeed. Senator Obama's remarks about poor dumb bitter rural losers "clinging to" guns and God certainly testify to the instinctive snobbery of a big segment of the political class. But we shouldn't let it go by merely deploring coastal condescension toward the knuckledraggers. No, what Michelle Malkin calls Crackerquiddick (quite rightly — it's more than just another dreary "-gate") is not just snobbish nor even merely wrongheaded It's an attack on two of the critical advantages the U.S. holds over most of the rest of the western world. In the other G7 developed nations, nobody clings to God'n'guns. The guns got taken away, and the Europeans gave up on churchgoing once they embraced Big Government as the new religion.

How's that working out? Compared to America, France and Germany have been more or less economically stagnant for the last quarter-century, living permanently with unemployment rates significantly higher than the U.S.

Has it made them any less "bitter," as Obama characterizes those Pennsylvanian crackers? No. In my book America Alone, just out in paperback and available in all good bookstores — you'll find it in Borders propping up the wonky rear leg of the display table for the smash new CD Michelle Obama And The San Francisco Macchiato Chorus Sing "I Pinned My Pink Slip To The Gun Rack Of My Pick-Up," "My Dog Done Died, My Wife Jus' Left Me, And Michael Dukakis Is Strangely Reluctant To Run Again," Plus "I Swung By The Economic Development Zone Business Park But The Only Two Occupied Rental Units Were Both Evangelical Churches" And Other Embittered Appalachian Favorites …

Where was I? Oh, yes. In my book America Alone, I note a global survey on optimism: 61 per cent of Americans were optimistic about the future, 29 per cent of the French, 15 per cent of Germans. Take it from a foreigner: in my experience, Americans are the least "bitter" people in the developed world. Secular gun-free big-government Europe doesn't seem to have done anything for people's happiness. Consider by way of example the words of Keith Reade. He's not an Obama speechwriter, he's a writer for the London Daily Mirror. And the day after the 2004 Presidential election he expressed his frustration in an alarmingly Obamaesque way:

"Were I a Kerry voter, though, I'd feel deep anger, not only at them returning Bush to power, but for allowing the outside world to lump us all into the same and strong.'"

Well, that's certainly why I supported Bush, but I'm not sure it entirely accounts for the other 62,039,073 incontinent rednecks. Mr Reade, though, does usefully enumerate some of the distinctive features that separate America from the rest of the west. "Self-righteous"? If you want a public culture that reeks of indestructible faith in its own righteousness, try Europe — especially when they're talking about America: If you disagree with Eutopian wisdom, you must be an idiot. Obama and far too many Democrats have bought into this delusion, most thoroughly distilled in Thomas Frank's book What's The Matter With Kansas?, whose argument is that heartland voters are too dumb (i.e., "moronic muppets") to vote for their own best interests.

Europeans did "vote for their own best interests" — i.e., cradle-to-grave welfare, 35 hour work-weeks, six weeks of paid vacation, etc. — and as a result they now face a perfect storm of unsustainable entitlements, economic stagnation, and declining human capital that's left them so demographically beholden to unassimilable levels of immigration that they're being remorselessly Islamized with every passing day. We should thank God (if you'll forgive the expression) that America's loser gun-nuts don't share the same sophisticated rational calculation of "their best interests" as Thomas Frank, Obama, too many Democrats and the European political establishment.

As for "gun-totin,'" large numbers of Americans tote guns because they're assertive, self-reliant citizens, not docile subjects of a permanent governing class. The Second Amendment is philosophically consistent with the First Amendment, for which I've become more grateful since the Canadian Islamic Congress decided to sue me for "hate speech" up north. Both amendments embody the American view that liberty is not the gift of the state, and its defense cannot be outsourced exclusively to the government.

I think a healthy society needs both God and guns: it benefits from a belief in some kind of higher purpose to life on earth, and it requires a self-reliant citizenry. If you lack either of those twin props, you wind up with today's Europe — a present-tense Eutopia mired in fatalism. A while back, I was struck by the words of Oscar van den Boogaard, a Dutch gay humanist (which is pretty much the trifecta of Eurocool). Reflecting on the Continent's accelerating Islamification, he concluded that the jig was up for the Europe he loved, but what could he do? "I am not a warrior, but who is?" he shrugged. "I have never learned to fight for my freedom. I was only good at enjoying it."

Sorry, it doesn't work like that. If you don't understand that there are times when you'll have to fight for it, you won't enjoy it for long. That's what a lot of Keith Reade's laundry list — "gun-totin,'" "military-lovin'" — boils down to. As for "gay-loathin,'" it's Oscar van den Boogaard's famously tolerant Amsterdam where gay-bashing is resurgent: the editor of the American gay paper The Washington Blade got beaten up in the streets on his last visit to the Netherlands.

God and guns. Maybe one day a viable society will find a magic cure-all that can do without both, but Big Government isn't it. And even complacent liberal Democrats ought to be able to cast an eye across the ocean and see that. But then he did give the speech in San Francisco, a city demographically declining at a rate that qualifies it for E.U. membership. When it comes to parochial simpletons, you don't need to go to Kansas.

Mark Steyn, Cole Porter and Free Speech
QUOTE
Of course, now that Steyn lives 300 miles from the Palace Theatre and 3200 miles from the Barbican, he’s more or less out of the game as well. Steyn has a bucolic spread near a village in New Hampshire, where, rumour has it, he’s installed a “Beware of Pig” sign in order to taunt those Islamic extremists who would have him assassinated. It’s a strange homestead choice for a baptised Catholic, born in Ontario, confirmed in the Anglican church, three generations removed from a Jewish heritage, who speaks with a Brummie accent and sometimes sits in for Rush Limbaugh—and it all happened because he noticed the slogan on the New Hampshire licence plates.
UNQUOTE
I am not sure about Brummie accent and he does not go hard on Jews but he is a genuine advocate of Free Speech with an honest view of the politicians inflicting Third World immigrants on us and its consequences, the Population Dynamics, the Ethnic Fouling, the Genocide.

He was baptized a Catholic and later confirmed in the Anglican Church;[5] he has stated that "the last Jewish female in my line was one of my paternal great-grandmothers" and that "both my grandmothers were Catholic".[6] Steyn's great-aunt was artist Stella Steyn.[7] His mother's family was Belgian.[8]

Steyn was educated at the King Edward's School, Birmingham, in the United Kingdom, the same school that author J. R. R. Tolkien attended and where Steyn was assigned a Greek dictionary that had also been used by Tolkien.[9] Steyn left school at age 16[10] and worked as a disc jockey before becoming musical theatre critic at the newly established The Independent in 1986.[11] He was appointed film critic for The Spectator in 1992. After writing predominantly about the arts, Steyn shifted his focus to political commentary and wrote a column for The Daily Telegraph, a conservative broadsheet, until 2006.

Football, Rape & Global Warming Fraud
QUOTE
In the wake of Louis Freeh’s report on Penn State’s complicity in serial rape, Rand Simberg writes of Unhappy Valley’s other scandal:

I’m referring to another cover up and whitewash that occurred there two years ago, before we learned how rotten and corrupt the culture at the university was. But now that we know how bad it was, perhaps it’s time that we revisit the Michael Mann affair, particularly given how much we’ve also learned about his and others’ hockey-stick deceptions since. Mann could be said to be the Jerry Sandusky of climate science, except that instead of molesting children, he has molested and tortured data in the service of politicized science that could have dire economic consequences for the nation and planet.

Not sure I’d have extended that metaphor all the way into the locker-room showers with quite the zeal Mr. Simberg does, but he has a point. Michael Mann was the man behind the fraudulent climate-change “hockey-stick” graph, the very ringmaster of the tree-ring circus. And, when the East Anglia emails came out, Penn State felt obliged to “investigate” Professor Mann. Graham Spanier, the Penn State president forced to resign over Sandusky, was the same cove who investigated Mann. And, as with Sandusky and Paterno, the college declined to find one of its star names guilty of any wrongdoing.

If an institution is prepared to cover up systemic statutory rape of minors, what won’t it cover up? Whether or not he’s “the Jerry Sandusky of climate change”, he remains the Michael Mann of climate change, in part because his “investigation” by a deeply corrupt administration was a joke.

The Ruin of England [ 31 May 2017 ]
QUOTE
The groupthink in our public discourse is so pervasive it goes as unnoticed as the air. For example, let's say a bunch of young girls are blown up at a pop concert. You have to say something about it. But what?

Sir Richard Leese, Leader of Manchester City Council, on what he called the "incident" (seriously) at Manchester Arena:

We will not allow terrorists who seek to sow fear and division to achieve their aims.

Likewise, Amber Rudd, the British Home Secretary, had no doubt about the intent of the attack:

Its intention was to sow fear - its intention is to divide.......................

Pace The Toronto Star, I'm not sure it is "stating the obvious" to say that Monday's attack was meant to "sow division". What's going on in Britain and Europe occurs because division has already been sown. It was sown by a careless [ Or would it be Treasonous? - Editor ] political class that insisted there could be no questioning of a reckless demographic experiment. It is being reaped, as the division-sowing pop star Morrissey has divisively noted, by the political class' hapless citizenry............

Britain is "divided", perhaps fatally. It's not so much the comparatively small numbers of suicide bombers, or even the support group of family and friends - the dad who works at the mosque pending his return to the battlefield, the sister who congratulates him on entering Paradise, the sister's schoolmates who drop out to be become brides of Isis, the bomb-maker who lives down the street, the other friends and family who turn a blind eye to it all............

 As Orwell said, he who controls the past controls the future. Isis and Boko Haram and the Taliban obliterate the past in order to eliminate any possibility of a future other than theirs. They smash all evidence of the pre-Islamic past so that there remains not even the dimmest sense of any alternative to them. That was the project Salman Abedi was embarked on in Manchester last Monday. It must all go: Palmyra, and L S Lowry, and Ariana Grande.

is worth reading in full on the Manchester Massacre. Yes, we are being overrun hostile Third World parasites. Yes, it is Ethnic Fouling In England as well as the rest of Western Civilization. Yes, it is policy. Yes, Her Majesty's Government are doing it to us with the whole hearted collusion of Her Allegedly Loyal Opposition.
PS Amber Rudd & family have a track record; one of dangerous incompetence at best.

 

Managing Post-Terror Attitudes  [ 5 June 2017 ]
Mark Steyn
explains about the girls and young women murdered in the Manchester Massacre by Salman Ramadan Abedi, an Islamic terrorist full of hate. He and his were imported by Her Majesty's Government. Does Her Majesty's prime minister intend to carry on importing vicious Third World aliens? Is she going to seek vengeance? Will she allow police to carry on ignoring Pakistani Perverts in Rotherham treating English girls worse than dogs. We get to be victims while Capitalist Swine get cheap labour & the Labour Party gets cheap votes by Bribery & Vote Rigging.
