Godfrey Lands Himself a Brace of Bongos

Enterprising “humble music shop” Rainbow Music “in the bonny city of Dundee” have sent Godfrey Bloom a brace of bongos:

 “It was to our surprise and bemusement that you wanted to cut foreign aid to Bongo Bongo Land, as we were not sure as to the specific geographical location of such a place and we thought you were referring to the places where Bongos’ are made and played. We were unaware that we were eligible for foreign aid it has made us further confused. As an MEP you must be well informed of such foreign aid and would appreciate it if you could point us in the direction of any money that is coming our way. In appreciation we are giving you a pair of the finest Cuban, Bongo drums which you can have a good session with. The bongos are a great way for a politician to unwind after a hard day of representing the people, particularly as you sounded rather angry and stressed out on the wireless this morning. “

Boom boom!

        What is hilarious is that bongos are actually from Cuba, a Spanish colony…

        So what were talking about is Cuba Cuba land, or Spanish Land…

        The bongo originated from the eastern region of Cuba known as the “Oriente”, during the nineteenth century. The bongos used in changüí, known as bongó el monte, are larger and tuned lower than their modern counterparts, have tack-heads instead of tunable hardware, and play in a manner similar to rumba quinto and other folkloric lead drum parts.[2] (Hear bongó el monte “Ritmo changüí” with Grupo Exploracion). Bongos are also used in the related Cuban musical genre known as son.
        The bongos came to western Cuba at the turn of the twentieth century, when son migrated to the capital city of Havana. With the advent of the son montuno in the late 1930s, bongo players (bongoceros) began playing a large hand-held cowbell (bongo bell) during the chorus (montuno) section of songs.

However regardless of the political correctness brigades outrage at the “Bong Bongo” reference the fundimenat gist of most of his comments are spot on and will raise his profile among the normal electorate 10 fold.

    We are looking at a potential loss of 12000Tory party members and it is clear that they have not yet all joined UKIP but that does not mean that they will continue to vote Tory. If an individual is so disenchanted with the Tories that they resign their membership they are hardly going to rush out and vote for an organisation the have resigned from in disgust. Those who do vote will be looking for a more conservative organisation to support and UKIP may well be their choice. Like myself I am not a member of UKIP but I will vote for them from now on. Incidentally I have never been a member of the Tory party but I have always voted for them for the past 50 years.
    Two things are perfectly clear, the Tories are losing members and UKIP are gaining members. Therefore if the paying Tory members are resigning in large numbers as they are because they no longer support Cameron’s party, why on earth should we believe that non paying Tory supporters will behave differently?

    A question for you posters here – and I’ll preface by acknowledging that of course you, like everyone, have the right to like or hate whoever you wish – but I would like to genuinely know why you loathe dark skinned people so much? Again, I reiterate, I’m not questioning your right to hate whoever you want, but rather I’m curious as to what the reason is. Given that no one has any control over what race they’re born and that it’s the same random chance that you were born white that they were born black, why hold so much venom based on their pigmentation? I have met black people who were lovely, I have met black people who were rotten. Equally, I have met white people who were rotten and I have met white people who were lovely. So why this seemingly innate need to group people into a bracket based on their skin colour? If your reasoning extends no further than “because they’re black”, I’ll respect your honesty but it would confirm it’s a completely irrational hatred, given, as I said, no one has any control over their race.

          So, for Lefties, hate is perfectly acceptable if they decree it so. Indeed, they make it virtually compulsory – fortunately, most of us have little hate for the Irish, for Africa or for mothers-in-law, even if we do make jokes about them from time to time.

          A Poster says:

          Your original question was asked in three different and somewhat leading ways. The answers below do not necessarily apply to all posters on this specific site, but you may find broad correlation if the questions were put to a large sample of the general public from all ethnic backgrounds:

          Q1: ‘why you loathe dark skinned people so much?’
          A1: Generally do not, but many feel intimidated by the media images projected, and especially with the rac!st multi-culti / social model that exists in the UK, many feel dis-enfranchised by the perception (rightly or wrongly) that minorities are in some way favored by the state over the locals.

          This perception is broadly false, but very credible, and the media have not helped in dispelling this propaganda.

          Q2: ‘why hold so much venom based on their pigmentation?’
          A2: That is very leading. If the propaganda message has been overtly negative then there can be an amplified level of antipathy towards others. It is not about pigmentation, but rather about distorted perceptions as mentioned in A1.

          A good case against your pigmentation is the case of those from eastern europe.

          Q3: ‘So why this seemingly innate need to group people into a bracket based on their skin colour?’
          A3: Collectivist multi-culti models collectivize people into groups.

          If you are operating within that framework, the bracketing is built in and amplified.

          You can liken this to a society which is formed as mosaic rather than melting pot. The melting pot (individualist model) is preferable, but in Europe we have the mosaic which is seriously flawed.

          The choice was likely made by the elites post WWII in order to ensure their position through tactic of divide and rule.

          It is particular strong in Britain at present as we have just had 13 years of Labour in power. Socialism is a collectivist ideology at route and enforces division at the political level top down.

          This bracketing is not a natural state for society to be in. The media and state continue to enforce the divisions, subtly through celebrations of diversity, and that creates tension among the individuals. This in many helps amplify the problems you asked about in Q1 / Q2.

          Now the reason you received somewhat short shrift from other posters is likely because of the way you framed your question and points.

          We are free to express ourselves as we see fit within the confines of the law, but avoiding sanctimonious phrasing / prejudged forms of expression, not leading by example and laying off the passive aggression may have got you more constructive answers, and less questions about your political background.

          ‘TOOFAR’ actually summarized very accurately a big problem which exists at present, where questions such as those you ask appear to be designed to sow the seeds of division, and that is what people generally have had enough of.

      I for one do not, and haven’t seen many posts which support your conjecture about the state of posting on this site.

      To consistently remind people of their differences, such as happens through the various ‘diversity cults’ and ‘race relations’ b/s is by definition rac!st as it enforces the divisions upon which rasc!sm is forged.

      From this point of view, collectivist multi-culti models can be considered flawed as they are inherently ‘rac!st’.

      It should also be remembered that the color of your skin does not make you the individual any less or more rac!st towards others. And the real phenomena of rac!sm is not just about skin tone. Look to the ex-Yugoslav!a for an illustrative example, or the more lively disagreements between England / Scotland / !reland for others.

      You are correct that the aversion most people feel towards those they perceive as ‘outsiders’ is very irrational, and it is something that should be guarded against critically by the individual.

      The best strategy for handling these emotions is for the individual to move away from the triggers until they feel they are in control and comfortable being around those triggers. If not – steer clear.

      Political beliefs and employment choices are under our individual control.

      Perhaps you should reconsider yours and your apparent ‘employment’ as a web based activist and perhaps switch to a more centered libertarian outlook, and a more productive employ.

      Consider the wisdom of the libertarian outlook: Do no harm.

          You cannot infer that a strong or incoherent response implies that the poster harbors overtly rac!st feelings or fits to the stereotype you would like to project. That logic doesn’t wash, unless the poster has overtly expressed such specific opinion to support the case.

          Additionally – you received 2 ‘deranged’ replies from about 600 which have so far been posted to this site today. On that basis you cannot infer that many support your thesis. In fact, if those posters do in fact meet your criteria, they are very much in a minority.

          This is tantamount to considering an admission of guilt if someone denies the charge. If I were to accuse you of being a web activist, as I did, and you said ‘FFS etc.’ or ‘No I am not’ as you did, neither tell me anything other than you are not a web activist.

          The only way that can be proven is if I have evidence of your other posts that clearly demonstrate you are, or if you admit it. Absent that, are you excluding yourself from the apparently ‘many’ posters on this site who you accuse of being ‘rac!st’ ? Or are you implying that you are also guilty of that which you infer to others ?

          You did not state anything about your political leanings or ideological leanings, so I shall still work with the hunch that you are socialist / Labour, and perhaps not quite libertarian.

          When you look at the arguments critically, and avoid outright ad hominems etc. something interesting does emerge. And that is that posters to this site may not be interested in debating points which really are not important day to day, or to current events, and perhaps one of these reasons is because of the prejudice that seems to preclude any debate.

          This is not an attack on your personal style, but that which you have learned through your exposure to the UK media.

          Unlike the irrational feelings towards outsiders, that is learned, but can be unlearned easily when identified.

      As when Cameron referred to the British empire as the junior party in 1940. People went berserk. But what he said wasn’t what he meant. He meant the commonwealth was the junior partner to he USA in 1944. That is undeniable, no matter how much we would wish it were not. Yet he had to apologise just the same.

      African nations aid hasn’t helped Africa very much. Certainly not for the amount we and every other western nation give. Africa has declined over he last 50 years. Professor rossler I think his name is. Crops up on Newsnight from time o time. He plots all world wealth, death, prosperity, growth, taxes , luxuries etc.

      Africa is bottom of the heap. Always. But in the 50 s and 60s china was worse off and much of Latin America and the Far East. They all got our aid too. Why does Africa struggle? Mugabenomics?

I didn’t even mention Bloom in my post or, as one person above bizarrely claimed, leftie global we are all one type propaganda.

            That is not to say you are or you aren’t, but every individual is different and has a unique perspective which cannot be handled by others with a one size fits all script like the doctrine of Politically Correct thought.

            Regarding religions as a type of tribal group, albeit defined along spiritual beliefs is how one can understand certain irrational feelings towards followers of a religion in the same terms as that some may feel to people of certain nationalities or ethnic groups.

            However: That is a false equivalence as the rational for irrational negative feelings whilst may be rooted in the difference of fellow man – the latent tribal issue – the higher level effect usually manifests itself strongly in people for many other reasons.

            “how one can understand certain irrational feelings towards followers of a religion”

            There are no irrational feelings. That is your problem. To have a feeling about another group there has to be initial learning interaction. If that interaction is beneficial then the feelings are good. If it is a bad, then they are fear. This initial learning can be by proxy by your elders. Reactions to people are all long term operations that are fully processed before your reaction is initiated. Only reactions to the conditioning you have received will occur.

            Hopefully you are a mature adult. So your feelings are under your control and familiarity to a situation is your choice. So any irrational behaviour can only be due to impairment (drugs) etc.

            Some fear mice, other rats, some fear flying. These can all be overcome by reason and learning. It is just the willingness to accept the process and use the power of the adult mind that differentiates people. If you maintain your initial conditioning and reinforce it you can convince yourself you have an irrational (and maybe inbuilt) coding. But that is also a learnt concept within your mind that limits your outlook.

            Unlike say seasickness which can not be overcome by some. It is a fixed physical stimulus that is significantly hardwired. However for some even this can be mastered.

            Anything that uses the interpretation of the world indirectly through your senses is basically learnt. The infant brain has no concept of a mouse.

      Here’s a serious answer, however, I strongly suspect you are very young and therefore very naive.

      It’s all about biology and evolution btw…

      Here’s the problem. Xenophobia (fear of strangers) like neophobia (fear of the novel or unknown of which it is just a sub-class in my view), is innate. It is a defence mechanism upon which, I suggest, all learning (behavioural change) is based. It is a defence system closely related to the immune system, and stress/fight-flight. It is probably endogenous opioid and cortisol mediated (see immunosuppression and what the steroids do). The endogenous opioid peptides are in fact 1000x more powerful than exogenous morphine! The immune and defense systems are how animals recognize self from non self. It’s basic to assortative mating and reproduction. Have you noted how most people across the world pair up? How does one ‘combat’ that and what hundreds of thousands of years of Natural Selection has selected for …without making most people very very very very upset/stressed/angry and…ultimately ill!?

      What evidence do you have that posters here hate dark-skinned people?

      If you are inferring that someone who refers to ‘Bongo Bongo Land’ hates dark skinned people, you are wrong. It is more a derogatory term for the sort of dictators that turn their African nations into backward poverty-stricken hellholes for their fellow countrymen (the more down-trodden of which most people have great sympathy for), than it is a comment on those self-same countrymen.

      ‘Hate’ seems to be a word beloved of people having a certain political outlook. Most people of my aquaintance seem to have very little hate, even if they sometimes hold strong opinions. But then most people of my aquaintance don’t have any connection to the very noisy Westminster Village and Islington-based commentariat, who’s views we hear a great deal about, but seldom seem to match general public opinion as most of us find it. Maybe your answer lies there.

        I agree. But bongos (including all the other taught skin instruments) are used throughout the world. It is a basic invention of all cultures.

        It reflects a low tech music used in traditional festivals. It is therefore used when putting on shows where aid is being discussed.

        You would hardly send aid money to a place that could put on a full stadium rock concert. So the bongo bongo phrase for people wanting aid is apt.

        For example a small island put on a concert for the visitors in a wooden hut on the beach. Yet around the corner there was a US hardware store and the best pizza place for thousand of miles. That place was sent aid, and was having a new dock built by aid money, to receive the aid shipments. They got a consignment of out of date chocolate!

      “I would like to genuinely know why you loathe dark skinned people so much? Again, I reiterate, I’m not questioning your right to hate whoever you want, but rather I’m curious as to what the reason is. Given that no one has any control over what race they’re born and that it’s the same random chance that you were born white that they were born black, why hold so much venom based on their pigmentation?”

      Then I respectfully suggest that you may have been a victim of Libertarian (Orwellian) propaganda to recruit anarchistic foot-soldiers who thwart statism and deregulation.

      Let me ask you a series of heuristic questions to illustrate how this dumbing down may have operated to one group’s (perhaps your own?)
      disadvantage:

      1. Are there any important differences between Granny-Smiths and Braeburns?

      2. Are there any important differences between apples and oranges?

      3. Are there any important differences between fruit and vegetables?

      4. Are there any important differences between plants and animals?

      5. Are there any important differences between invertebrates and vertebrates?

      6. Are there any important differences between non-mammals and mammals?

      7. Are there any important differences between primates and non primates?

      8. Are there any important differences between chimpanzees and humans?

      9. Are there any important differences between groups of humans?

      If you think not, maybe you just have a problem with telling important differences between classes, in which case you’d not score high on an IQ test which are constructed to test discrimination and logical ability.
      Note also how the word important plays a role as well as differences?
      There are important differences between human groups. It isn’t human skin colour which is important (any more than it is with apples), but it is a phenotype which serves as a marker for other important genetic differences which show up in expressed behaviours etc..

      Look up the title of Darwin’s Origin of Species in full, and then look into how his cousin Galton laid the foundations of differential psychology (and hence psychometrics and biometrics) and why he coined the term eugenics, as I suggest you are one of many who has been rendered a victim of psychological/demographic warfare (note the composition of this group)? Note how Creationism also works to undermine modern biology? Genesis was written by the same group who inspired Trotsky, Rand, Orwell etc. Much of Christianity teaches magic and passivity not struggle, who encouraged Catholics to effectively sterilize their intelligentsia via celibacy whilst doing the opposite themselves?

      PS. If you answer yes to one or two, are you a fruitist?

Refusing to allow you language to be censored by sanctimonious self appointed arbiters of what is or is not acceptable does not mean you hate anyone. The term bongo bongo land no more implies hatred of Africans than calling the French Frogs or Germans Krauts implies hatred of the French or Germans. All these terms are of course disparaging, but that is a far cry from hatred. Disrespectful language is a safety valve for normal human frustrations. Suppress it and you greatly increase the chances that hatred will develop.

      The science of Individual Differences (in fact, this is central to the entire experimental method) is to assume the Null Hypothesis but try to reject it. That is, one assumes, a priori equality or randomness between groups on a variable or set of variables, and then tests to see if the groups are in fact (a posteriori) equal. Where group mean differences depart from what would be expected by random sampling error alone, one has a lawful effect at work. What scientists do is look for differences having assumed equality/randomness. It is not racist/sexist etc to detect and report group differences (ref Galton, Pearson, Spearman and Fisher’s role in statistics and biometrics). It is the very hallmark of good scientific research. This ability is selected in higher education. Those who repeatedly ignore this, or who heckle/denigrate those who go about doing this work, and especially those who point out the dire economic implications of neglecting it, are either a) incorrigibly not very bright; b) political subversives; c) economic predators/opportunists or d) psychiatrically disturbed, I suggest.

      Your views have been adventiously socially conditioned by what appears to you to be socially desirable. That is, you publicly express views which you think make you appear more attractive. At root, however, this is just vanity – egocenticism, and is an extreme form narcissism. I am saying this is the infantile disorder of anarchism/Bolshevism (to be markedly contrasted with statism/Stalinism aka Old Labour).

      Just a few other offensive (eugenicist) people:

      Darwin, Spearman, Pearson, Fisher, Huxley (Julius – cf UNESCO) Burt, Cattell, Haldane, Thompson, Keynes, Russell, Wells, Stopes, Shaw Churchill, Chamberlain, Crick…to name just a few.

      Maybe you, and a few others’ egocentricity makes you unwitting accomplices (footsoldiers) in the demise of a culture and race?…

          Thank you for postscript.

          The seed / crop analogy is not appropriate for people.

          The logical conclusion is to question the relative merits of the pure stock versus the hybrids. Hybrids generally are weaker and a farmer prefers his crop to be strong and better yielding. This is absent the avenues of invasive species (J@panese Knotweed ?) and such things as hemlock getting into hay. You can see where that line of reasoning leads. Not good.

          Equivocating people to plants by this analogy denies them their humanity and individual identity.

          As such I would urge a careful reflection, and whilst not criticizing yourself, I do object very strongly to the model and argument you have presented and cannot comment further on it.

          I would suggest more careful use of asyndeton in presenting your arguments as in this case it does not strengthen it.

          Consider the people and the individuals rather than the aggregate groups. Being able to keep in perspective both group and individual, and being able to see the situation from many sets of eyes – many across the different ethnic groups and backgrounds – some of the real problems which are existent now become quite clear.

          The one guidance that would work mutually for all is: Do no harm.

          It will be interesting to see what direction people shift in. If the UK public opinion does revert to back to its mean, then one should be prepared for a good few years of libertarian power before those that seek to deny individual liberty start their process of oppression again.

        I can assure that my views are not broadcast out of narcissism.

        They are though broadcast on a libertarian blog to others, with the opportunity of debate and refinement.

        The problem with certain sciences is that they are by their nature somewhat controversial. The means do not always justify the end, and the benefit to society is not always positive.

        As the global warming fiasco demonstrated recently, science can be politicized and science which is solely dependent on statistical analysis can lose its principal objectivity. At that point it is no longer science, but fiction / propaganda.

        The same criticism can be leveled at other more traditional scientific fields. The giveaway is when after years of research there is no experimental result to back up theory.

        People understand science to be a credible framework which produces absolute results.

        They are not generally taught that science is a philosophical framework which attempts to identify factual explanations for repeatable phenomena, but that the models derived (except in a couple of instances) are not absolute.

        The belief in absolutes, incidentally, is a hallmark of the fascist mindset.

        Another example of negative science is the research which was carried out on concentration camp inmates during WWII in Europe, and POWs in the Pacific theater. Pressure effects on the human body were one result, the best treatment for frostbite another.

        The mindset and early work of individuals such as Galton fed directly into those atrocities, historical facts which some have attempted to revise completely out of the historical record.

        Some of the WWII research was ostensibly more scientific than global warming, but fails the tests of morality and ethics which science is ultimately subservient to.

        Science serves humanity, not the other way round.

        I do object strongly to the sciences which attempt to classify people irresponsibly, as such collectivist pattern making erodes the individuals humanity and being. These are the early dark steps which lead to socialist / statist hells which many libertarians are quite vocal about, and which the twentieth century was testament to.

        Ducking behind the barricade of jargon avoids confronting and debating the real issues, as does the attack on the man and not the ball we witnessed today with Mr. Bloom.

        My views are very assuredly my own, and certainly not a result of conditioning by the modern UK media.

    Jimmy's Rightie Quote Of The Day (Archive Classic) says:

    Lega Nord MEP Mario Borghezio has been expelled from the Europe of Freedom and Democracy Group, of which UKIP is a member, in the European Parliament today after a majority of MEPs voted in favour of the move.

    UKIP leader and EFD Group co-president Nigel Farage said: “I made it clear at the last Europe of Freedom and Democracy Group meeting that unless Mr Borghezio was expelled that UKIP would leave the Group.

    “Mr Borghezio has now been expelled for his repugnant comments.

    “We have sent out an unmistakable signal that racist comments are unacceptable. UKIP are opposed to racism of all kinds and we are happy this matter has dealt with swiftly and definitively by our colleagues in the Europe of Freedom and Democracy Group.”

      Dealing with Labour mandacity says:

      Lega Nord is not in the UK and Borghezio is not an MEP.

      The attack of Borghezio on Kyenge was not only below the somewhat low standards of !talian politic, but was very direct and unmistakable in its motivation.

      Borghezio was expelled from ‘Europe of Freedom and Democracy’ not UKIP, and support for that expulsion was pretty much across the board inclusive of UKIP.

      Your argument sounds more like you are questioning UKIPs support of that expulsion, so you perhaps you would have preferred Borghezio to not be expelled ? That would not imply you support Borghezio, but would be a very enlightened position for the left to take, defending free speech, which seems incredible.

      In any case the attempted parallel is false.

      As Bloom stated in the C4 interview somewhat honestly, this is all politics and what goes on between politicians is a game. Borghezio was not.

      Rushanara Ali being the one MP out of apparent step with Labour in condemning proves that Labour realize they cannot make the rac!st case here, she being somewhat the canary in a coal mine. It would further weaken their credibility and they have already lost that argument to public opinion. They do have seats to worry about.

      That should speak volumes about how Labour operate politically.

      Labour have bigger problems to deal with, namely leadership, funding scandals, NHS death camps, support of zero worker contracts, seats / selection for cash, lack of credible opposition, poor representation of their constituents and treating the public with now recognized contempt.

      Those items, in particular failing to meet their democratic obligations are causing great harm to the people.

      Thinking in Lincoln’s terms, the time that the majority of people can be fooled is over. Labour perhaps should ‘Get Over It’.

      Daft since it was government intervention (backed by the manufacturers) that put all the repair men out of business. The cost and red tape to repair an item is just too large to make it worth it.

      This also removed a large area of 50-65 age employment. The government made sure that items could not be repaired so moved the profits to the overseas manufacturers. Look at the EU directives.

            As Lord Lamont says, anything Cameron negotiates will be “inconsequential”.

            1) Cameron is not going to give an EU in out vote in 2017
            2) Cameron hasn’t got enough time to re-negotiate our relationship before 2017
            3) Even if he did have enough time, the EU (and only France this week) have been very clear that nothing can be changed and they will not support it.
            4) It is impossible to negotiate with the EU unless you serve Article 50 Notice to Leave, and then negotiate.
            5) Cameron is a cast iron liar.

            If you vote for any of the LibLabCon, you are voting for the EU and everything that “Ever Closer Union” represents, ie loss of UK soverignty and democracy.

        Why does everybody seem to think that only Tory voters will switch to UKIP, thus allowing Labour in? Plenty of Labour voters will switch too – it could be the death knell for the 3-in-1 system we currently suffer under. And the prospect of Con/Lab/UKIP all getting around 30% of the GE vote – what larks!

      Language of the BBC not Cavemen says:

      Err no he didn’t use the language of a caveman. Until the end of the 80s the BBC documentary visited bongo bongo land twice weekly living and analysing the bongo bongo natives and they won many prizes for their work. They even went so far as to say no one from the outside world must visit these tribes other than BBC film crews.

      Oddly not one of these documentaries is to be seen on Youtube today. But thanks to the BBC documentary bongo bongo land is in the vocabulary of 50% of the nation and it’s wrong to eradicate bongo bongo thoughts with the law.

      Just like Jim’ll fix it seems incredible now so too is the 70s and 80s BBC documentary.

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.
