Comment Isn’t Free

The Guardian has a history of giving platforms to people with extremist views, but it sank to a new low today by running an op-ed from the terrorist leader of Hamas in Gaza. Apparently someone who advocates the persecution of women and gays as well as calling for the eradication of Israel, is just the man to write for a liberal-left newspaper.  CiF has received a barrage of angry tweets and cancelled subscriptions, whilst The Guardian is now being described as the most bigoted paper in BritainComment isn’t free, to victims of Hamas atrocities, it can cost you an arm and a leg…

          Caractacus says:

          Surely Israel is capable of standing up for itself? What with the thousands of nuclear weapons, the largest, strongest army in the Middle East, the backing of the world’s most powerful superpower, the ability to shoot anyone they don’t like with impunity, the ability to expand their borders through war with impunity, the ability to imprison Palestinians for simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time and the ability to label anyone who says anything vaguely critical as anti semitic, they surely don’t need you, me or anyone else standing up for them.

          Israel likes to portray itself as a new Masada, standing alone and besieged, under attack from all sides and full of honourable men fighting to exist and who would rather die honourably than be captured.

          However, to misquote Shakespeare. It is always those with most dishonour who feel the need to “say they are honourable men.”

            How can a tiny little country, the size of Wales and the population of NW London, have an army larger than Egypt or Iraq?

            Oh the racist delusions of the Left.

          • Grrr says:

            >It has a huge army because virtually everyone, including the women, are in it. There are very few “Civilians” in Israel. Arguably most Israelis are legit military targets.

            So all children, babies, grandmothers, disabled, tourists, religious who do not serve are all in the army. Wow… this must be the most amazing army in the world.

            A tiny little country, the size of Wales, with the population of Manchester – with no oil, little water and surrounded on all sides by enemies – is a greater military force than 130 million Arabs, with vast quantaties of land, water, oil and resources.

            As there is only one Israeli for every 20 Arabs, each Israeli must be a super-human genius. I can’t find any other way to explain it.

            Kind of reminds me of Mr Hitler’s opinion that a tiny number of Joooz in his country were running everything. Or Muslim assertions that the Joooz control the banks, Hollywood and everything else.

            Its the cool 21st Century anti-semitism. The Joooz are still in charge – but this time just the Middle East.

            Oh dear, it’s retard time. The Nazis were a bulwark against communism and supported by those who did not want their property nationalized. Big business supported the Nazis and opposed socialism and communism.

            And – as everyone knows – Right wing means racist and bad.

            The fact that Hitler called himself a Socialist is obvioulsy a mistake on his part.

            I thank the BBC/Guardian for correcting Hitler’s mistake and re-labeling him correctly.

    Tim W. says:

    . 50 years ago my father told me that you could learn a lot about a newspaper by looking at the people who read it. He pointed out that the Guardian is beloved of teachers, students — foreign students in particular and people whose salaries are paid by the taxpayer. One reason for its overseas popularity, he opined, was the fact that whenever Britain was in dispute with another country, the Guardian usually found in favour of a foreign country.

    Maybe that is why the Guardian and the BBC have so much in common. The BBC is funded by a compulsory tax on people who watch television and nearly all its recruitment advertising is — was — placed in the Guardian, resulting in a Guardian-mindset in its management. Oh, like the Guardian, it is anti-monarchist and prides itself on being “internationally admired and respected”. In other words, just like the Guardian it is all too willing to be favourable in its coverage of other countries affairs.

      Saffron , until fairly recently , I would have considered what you said as a bit too far from the middle , 2 yrs on and sometimes the thankless task of taking on Blair and the ruins legacy , trying tell people , what an almighty crock labour did to this country , feels like what those brave men must have done who had to defend the beaches of Dunkirk from the oncomming Nazi advance , some carried on firing until there last side arms were spent , to allow for few more to be rescued , however politics is mainly a battle of words requiring timing , some rants go out of fashion rather quickly , and Labour have been rather ghastly in opposition and still feel they should be virile rather than penetant , which gives some of us at times a low moral effect as we have to fight on .
      In elections terms of 4-5 yrs any opposition can play these sorts of games , the fiery darts , the expendature of assets, disohloushion , fracturing party lines , we wonder when we shall an end in sight to the regurgitated wonk .

      I find it strange when people seem so unaware of the sort of traditions and understandings that once held our country together as essence , now are in the desires of politics , we used to live and speak to another in way that had nothing to do with votes , things werent perverted to suite , even if powers were limited to the public , the relationship to them was not . It may have wiffed of the well to do moving in different circles , but that realtionship was till there , we had invisible responsibilities to look after things , words of honesty or loyality mattered completely . I doubt if that idea has ever really gone away in any succesful nation , despite this new belief in intense communications of the inane , as meaning social improvement . In some ways we were all villagers , charged with the responsibilities of upkeep and well being , we did not hand over such things to votes , nor did polticians ask for changes to certain relationships , if they invoked any move towrds loss to the united kingdon. The political verbs were all so different , the dept of industry , national health , the home office , it was progressive without ever thinking of having new swanky regional goverments . sometimes i just wonder if the politicians of this relative peace time have not just been on some sort of self aggrandising trip , while supervising the steady progress of rot and massive political spending and waste .
      of course they cite the massive efforts of the world wars as being unique socially , and we have moved gloriously on,but even then , it had its inbuilt villagers attitudes towrds one another in considerations of good and bad local times , hence the memorials and cherished living hsitory and traditions aspects. In short we seemed to own more of lives and activities , there was security in knowing they were ours to keep and look after .
      Of course huge organisational tools and theorys have enabled , political thought to beleieve in more control and monitoring externally , creating somthing sililar to Huxleys brave new world , which to me seems more akin to lab rat and scientist and a more disturbing form of rule , culminatiing in what we are experiencing now in what churchill forsaw as the battle conducted in the mind , they sell it as freedom , but in my view it is the scraps or parameters of the experiment we dine upon and not the more informed choice that once inhabitited the more homogenous comunications of institutions , built to ensure certain freedoms worked as they should .
      It by no means as a system stopped any bad public service , but it certainly placed an understood ownerous on those that had office .
      I dont get particulary upset at politicians being fast and loose with the truth , in variable debates , but I do get intensly upsett when they it seems take it as normal , to cook up somthing that takes away from the understanding that used to exist . They seem to behave sometimes like they can tell us anyhting they want as they are elected . This cycle has progressed so that we have personality politics as we cannot stomach ideaological politics or its too dangerous . The debate has been happening somewhere other than peoples minds for some time in my view , add in the interferences of now spent outside ideaologies , and its no wonder some people dont vote , as all they seem to do is promote the next confluence of peoples lives that kerchings there till , our once wide spread good nature and belief that those who were our better , did no wrong , has been utterly raped and pillaged until its an untelligable pack of lies to most people . as the vote seems not to change the external effects on the villagers lives .
      How did we end up with such a ruined economy , that pension ages are forced up and jobs stability becoming some sort of myth , with aditional new thought opressions ….. Our hsitorical contract of UK democtatic power seems to have been ripped up in new financial problems and the deployment of mind control for socialism . Of course it doesnt affect the chattering elite , they think that what they exchange is what we exchange , we need thought adjustments and not them , all very new labour in my view.

      Of course seeing the memorials of the holocaust , as our footballers have done ,is full of troubling questions , Naziism declared Judiasm the cause of its loss on power , men and wealth , the recession in germany before the 1929 crash , made one social class or race , look like an untroubled elite in the widespread poverty and humiliations of war financial repatriations. A broken country , politically divdied and fractious , socialy mobility defined as connections within a certain group that were alien to the other group , still in the trenches of poverty.

      Of course we can certainly point to labours poltics for creating the humilation , so certain about there modernisiation of knowledge and eutopia . Of course there comes a point when , your country is whored out so much , your only instincts are animal , your enviroment overun , the undermining so vast , it can do nothing more than cave in .

      That is trouble I have with labour , sometimes I glimpse the true poverty of what they created , not always the jobs , but in things like attitudes in business and public life , the downgrading of Christmas , the complete reprogrammings required to make us all forget , that we once didnt have so much intrusion , monitoring and whoring of our data and lives , for some sort of corporate perfection, as our rights and responsibilites were the property of us and not supremed to them in such minutia . I am troubled because I know the difference , as I have lived long enough to interpret it , like some sort of alien pod has been placed next to me , waiting to make a dumber version of me, when I tire.
      replacement is one of those things that can go disasterously wrong , and culutral replacement is one of the most dangerous as the mistake can be made that it is similar to a transplant . A transplant is of course not a threat from a similar donar , it is somthing we give may give thanks for . But how should we feel about a transplant that makes us ill, weak or not able to reproduce the benefits of our long worked at freedom and culture , what else can occure but selfloathing and a desire for surgery or contagion barrier . Cultural change , historically is a matter of life or death , wether ideas or people , you are right saffron to point out Labour in creating a problem that may crstalise in such a binary way if they were wrong .

          • Quite correct. I have had wonderful arguments over the years with people of a diametrically opposite point of view to mine. It sharpens one’s game in the best way possible. The problem with your own side is that you tend to parrot each other’s prejudices and miss the chance to develop thought further.

            As for the exception, you have kindly left enough ambiguity for me to interpret to suit my convenience.

    When they were brought to account over the patent counterfactuality of this piece of unabashedly slanderous filth, they didn’t exactly knock themselves out apologising for it. Perverse defiance in a soft radicalism which performs moral contortions in accommodating antisemitism, misogyny, paed0philia, racism and t errorism.

    In one sense, the Graun is useful as a telling document recording (albeit inadvertently) the pathologies and inverted moralities of the Left and its heedlessness of the state of shouting squalor it has degraded to. I feel pity not least for those decent Leftists whose moral reasoning has remained sound but who must feel most powerless and marginalised; they’ve witnessed the descent of their friends and comrades into self-hate and cognitive dissonance and moral contamination. And the once-universal moral values be turned inside-out and skewed beyond recognition.

    How much of a strangle hold on Twitter will it be necessary to engineer, before super injunctions will work again?

    I am disgusted by the Guardian and have cancelled my subscription. Anti-semitism should be punished to the full extent of the law. I believe that the Guardian has actually contravened the law and am putting forward a case for prosecution. Anti-Israeli scum as they are, by dealing with known terrorists like Hamas, they are pandering to fascism and the holocaust. The Arabs want Israel destroyed, and they will be destroyed first NOT Israel. Thank you Guido for supporting us. You are always pro-Israel and we are very thankful for your help. Maybe one day we can flatten Gaza once and for all. May they all rot in hell.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
