SHOULD WE HATE HATRED?

Apropos of today’s murderous attack aimed at young girls in Manchester, I just saw this post on my timeline by Brendan O’Neill, Libertarian Editor of SPIKED magazine…..

People telling Manchester not to “give in to hate”. This is always the first response of the chattering class to terrorism: “Oh shit, what will stupid people do in response to this?! Will their inner spite and racism be unleashed??” They seem to fear their fellow citizens, especially the white, working-class ones, more than they fear Islamist murderers. Well, I think a bit of hate, or certainly anger, would be pretty fitting right now. [end].

I haven’t yet read the comments attached to the post. No doubt Brendan will not be castigated by his fan base, but I dare say that much criticism will be forthcoming from other sources, condemning him for fostering hate. In such a now common atmosphere of anguish caused by Islamist activities, certain sections of society prioritize their reaction in the form of warning against hatred carried out by words or deeds. The first reaction is to jump to the defense of innocent Muslims to ward off unjust victimization. Those sections of society range from church spokespeople to Islamic organizations to the loony Left and political leaders.

It is not they, nor the incident itself, which prompts me to plonk a few words down.

Every one of us knows love, even if we don’t bother to define it in its various levels and types. We love. We love people, animals, locations, hobbies, our personal stuff; our gods. Many love their Creator God. Love is so intense, especially when our love is for family and friends. The nub and the rub of this is our reaction to any harm done to those we love so passionately. When our great love is hurt, in pain, unjustly treated or suffers in any way, we endure a natural reaction of sorrow and pain ourselves and want to right the wrong done. The emotional – and natural – reaction towards the cause of our loved ones’ suffering is HATE…. the counterbalance of love.

In our PC age we have succumbed to the re-configured and adjusted meanings and connotations of words and to the value placed on them. “Discrimination” is now negative. “Judging” is now wrong. “Carbon” is our enemy. Enter our word du jour, “Hate”. We Joe and Jill Averages rarely have the propensity to evaluate the indoctrination we have been subjected to, such that we have been directed away from the true meanings and roots and purposes of many terms that once fitted the bill. They fitted the bill because they were sensible and appropriate. “Hate” is entirely appropriate as the natural action/reaction response to whatever has attacked our “Loves”. In a similar way, we may burst into laughter at the incongruous, yell out to relieve pain, jump for joy, clap a good performance. When a loved one is harmed, we are supposed to hate the cause for that is our stimulus to act, just as pain is the stimulus to take remedial action to protect the body from further damage.

What is at stake here is what this hate causes us to do. It ought be remedial action or a saving action. I suggest that the ‘wrong’ involved here would be a reaction of revenge or unjustified violence. Enough communal or collective hatred ought inspire a collective or societal reaction. Obviously, we have a justice system to secure some recompense, but what about ensuring that we learn from any ugly event and to take steps to prevent it from happening in future. I would suggest that this is our failing today and that the hatred should never have been permitted by our leaders to fester to a point of many of us harboring a bigot’s hatred.

The government should become as an embodied lover who protects the loved one, not an entity of appeasing, gutless ideologues who are full of fake ‘reasonableness’.  When it comes to protecting your beloved car, or stepping in to save your pet poodle, or ultimately to protecting your children, somebody will get hurt. Somebody will get physically hurt, or emotionally hurt, or have their rights restricted – necessary to protect one’s own. Sometimes you have to punch someone in the face.

AMERICA IN CRISIS

*hit’s Hit The Fan and the free world leader’s fate is in the balance.

The overnight news of a new email release and a re-opening of the FBI investigation into Hillary has seen mass panic and scurrying of prominent persons to positions of moral high-ground before heads roll. If Hillary’s head rolls, a lot of others are on the chopping block and that’s the way it’s looking.

The first to run for cover is FBI Director Comey. He knows his first investigation resulting in a recommendation of no charges against Hillary will result in his “hanging” in the court of public opinion, if not in a real court, especially if Trump wins. At the very least he will become known in posterity as the worst ever Director, more scandalous than the cross-dressing Hoover. He has taken the unprecedented step of advising Congress that a new investigation is underway. His Assistant Director has pushed against him for more truth [so guess who thinks he has a chance at the top job?]. I’ve intimated on Fb posts previously that FBI underlings were furious with Comey, so he was facing a shaming and a revolt from those Agents who actually worked hard for their country with honorable motives.

Then there are the Rallies-for-Clinton cancellations. Obama has cancelled. The VP candidate Tim Kaine just cancelled his own rally [a big disappointment to his ten fans, I’m sure].

And there are those in power positions who have taken The Fifth recently when put under the microscope. The latest is Loretta Lynch, the Attorney General, and general corrupt Clinton Puppet.

And the latest emails?  If 33,000 unsecure emails and 20 releases of Podesta emails couldn’t do the job, then what the heck can a few more do? In my view and my colleagues’ [the team at “Speak Freely” facebook community], it probably doesn’t matter! Why? Because the damage done is obvious and if Trump wins there could be a lot of Hillarians headed for ruination or jail – so now they need to recover their postion. Then again, there may well be something in them, or even something newly-invented to justify the Comey position. This new release comes apparently from Anthony Weiner, estranged husband of Huma Abedin and ex-Congressman who is a sexual degenerate and likes to send pics of his own weener to young women. If Weiner has volunteered this release maybe this is porn-revenge of a whole new kind, taken to nark his wife Huma. Huma is Hillary’s closest staffer and possibly the Muslim Botherhood’s best ally in the White House – apart from Obama that is.

Hillary’s use of a private server for official emails, while treasonous, was originally thought to be done out of naivety. Not so. This was done because private emails could be erased [and their transmitters smashed – as she tried to do]. Emails sent through Govt. servers could not be obliterated. Forget who hacked what – Wikileaks, Guccifer, Russia, China, – heck, they all do it. Blame here is but a smoke-screen. Anyway, nobody needs emails to know that the media is an organ of the Democrats, that Bill is a lying sex predator, or that the Clinton Foundation is a rort par excellence….. but proof helps.

The Clinton Foundation was formed with the same rationale as the private server. And that is so that Foreign Donations could be received for Hillary’s expanding bank account and for her Campaign. Such petrodollars could not be donated to Hillary’s campaign directly, especially from the Saudis, so they are covertly received as donations to the Foundation. By way of example, the millions donated for Haiti relief only managed to build a few homes, and the Haitians are furious and legal action is pending. Let’s not touch on the implications for Obama, the 1.7 billion ransom paid to Iran, the nuclear enabling for Iran, the Benghazi fracas, libya, the funding and enabling of ISIS, the open-border and migration policy etc. etc. These are all in the “pay-to-play” basket that may well be followed up by a Trump POTUS.

In conclusion, a Clinton reign will begin the demise of America as the world’s powerhouse and it will quickly go the way of all past powers. The repercussions for its allies is speculative and will depend on the relationships with the new powers of Russia, China, the U.N. and even the Caliphate. And yet, nobody can predict if a Trump reign will prolong the existence of a “free-world” bloc, especially considering that America’s moral, political and social decline appears irreversible. We can only hope.

The White Hellmutts.

A regular viewer of Al Jazz, BBC Global, ABC24, SBSnews will have seen ubiquitous coverage of those “brave” men in white helmets pulling survivors from bombing-induced rubble in Aleppo. My antenna picked up a faecal signal and I said earnestly and quietly to myself “Hmm”, or something very close to that. Determined to allay my suspicions that this was suspicious, I managed to plant a bug under the PM’s desk when I was last there for petit fours [ although there were actually three of us in attendance]. Here is the conversation I later recovered after attending No.10 for even pettier deux:

PM:  Look at the polls Humphrey, we’re sunk. The plebians have rattled to our role in supporting Assad’s opposition as well as those Daesh-bag terrorists. That infernal attack on the Syrian Army was supposed to look like a mistake. Then there are all the civilian casualties. Well Sir Humphrey, how do we redeem our pristine image with dead kiddies on the news every night?

SH:  Not to worry PM, they don’t vote now do they? But leave it with me, I’ll hand our image problem to some rather rum chaps at a nifty public relations firm.

PM:  Surely not those idiots that handled our Brexit case?

SH: Good Lord no!  They were behind the Irish Gay Marriage campaign.

Two Days Pass:

SH:  All arranged PM. Our PR  fellows are going to manufacture some heroes while, at the same time, make Vlad and Assad look bad. I say, rather a good bit of rhym….

PM:  Yes, yes, poetic indeed. How did that work out when we tried to blame them for the bombing of aid lorries?

SH:  Forget that PM. These fellows propose that we second a few hundred volunteers to make a display of rescuing survivors from the Russian bombings. Make them stand out for the world to see by issuing them with white helmets. Embed the best photo journalists. I’ll have a little talk to the BBC Chief about his tenure.

PM:  But surely the locals are doing that already? And how do you organize volunteers out of that rabble of camel fu… ah, drivers? Organized as Italian parliament those people.

SH:  Money PM. And none of our business if they’re filmed rehearsing the extraction of a pregnant mother buried under concrete for a week, what?

PM:  But wouldn’t she die without water after so long? I mean….

SH:  A hypothetical PM. We’ll make it two days just for you. And the White Helmets could deliver her baby afterward. What a scene!  Pups. We could have some puppies…..

PM: What Humphrey! Ridiculous. The woman delivering pups. Nobody will fall for that.

SH:  No, no I meant…. Oh, it doesn’t matter.

PM:  You know, it just might work Humphrey old boy. That will be the second brilliant idea I’ve had this week. One thing though Humphrey – there won’t be any terrorists among them I hope.

SH:  Pay no mind to that PM. Even if one or two slipped under our guard, those chaps all look the same; the public will never be attentive enough to match a beheader’s picture to the same man in a white helmet. Never happen, PM.

WILL THE LYCRA BE CHANGED FOR LEATHER?

  • In three days we will know.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    We already know what the Abbott-haters detest about the PM. The swagger, the ears, the volunteering firie, that his female associations show that he is no mysoginist, his climate denial, his bike-riding and, maybe his religious brand. How could anyone with such baggage be a good PM. Personally, I think his fellow party-members will retain him…showing that pollies are not the fickle public, but that cool leather-jacketed, urbane populist is ready to pounce.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                As of Wednesday, let’s hope the govt. gets on with the job!
