What do you mean I 'don't count'? I may not wear the old pith helmet too often but I'm still an entitled white(ish) Englishman. Sad

Dont you call me a na-ge!

So some BLM hero in China thinks someone is insulting him
when he hears "na-ge' which is a Chinese filler word
the equivalent of us saying umm, er, y'know
and full of self righteous BLM anger, slaps the guy.
If only the ignorant fucker had bothered to learn something about the
language and customs..... but where's the self righteousness in that?

A professor in the USA has to stand down when he discusses this

Having spent 15 or so years in an office with Manderin speakers, I can confirm that this isn't someone trying to be clever, by using an outlying word, this is absolutely a mainstream word used frequently.

I do wonder about how stupid this argument could become, for example, when the Spanish are no longer allowed to use the word "black" anymore, especially in the masculine form ?

Good thing he wasn't up to talk about Ebola, the monkey virus from Africa.

Did I just say that! Did I just mention Africa, monkeys and viruses. Oh god. I'm going to hell.

In other news Auntie Beeb has sacked Phil Tufnell, Matt Dawson and Sue Barker Wub from A Question of Sport because they are too white and like shagging the opposite sex. Bets are on the new people will be Claire Balding as presenter and Eniola Aluko with Tom Daley as team captains. It ticks most PC boxes.

I think I shall put a bet on that, I've been told you can get 500/1.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/article-3891552/A-Question-Sport-grabs-BBC-look-fresh-new-perspective.html

They even say in the brief - The bid document mentions more diversity and a 'fresh and new perspective'.

Middle aged white men and women are practically the entire audience of QOS so I can't wait to see it consigned to the dustbin when the new diverse front-line with fresh perspectives comes into play.

It's also incredibly wrong on so many levels, but not in the way they are portraying it.

Brilliant video posted by Chickenstrip.

Particularly like the comments from Sun Tzu (he of 'Art of War') fame, I've been meaning to read that for years.

It's very apt, isn't it? How many times while watching that old lecture did you think, "hey, that looks really familiar right now"?

Uploaded by Comedy Central - the very people that cut an hour Jordan Peterson interview down to 20 seconds of footage of him saying he was wrong about something and then overlaid a load of alt right footage to make out he was literal Hitler.

Oh, and let's not forget Avi Yemini - where they cut and pasted out of context answers to entirely different questions and made him out to be the type of bloke that was grooming Christchurch gunmen.

That really is so wrong.

Although for clarity I must point out that 'Coloured Milkman' referred to a milkman selling coloured milk, rather than.. well... Embarassed

Very interesting, I'd not heard of this Jim Jefferies but he sounds a right hypocrite. Makes himself out to be a left wing Muslim lover but then on the hidden camera footage makes jokes about killing Muslims and draws a picture of the prophet.

When top youtube links are along the lines of 'Jim Jeffries owns Jordan Peterson' he needs calling out

According to him he's a 'comedian' and his job was to get soundbites so of course he'd have more open dialogue and say some outrageous things, in order to make the subject feel comfortable enough to give him those soundbites.

Well, that as maybe, but copy/pasta interview clips? That's low AF.

Told a very staunch leftist mate of mine about this at the time and his response was 'no sympathy for the guy, anyone that supports Tommy Robinson can FRO'. So now, apparently, anyone on the right can be defamed in any way the left see fit and that's fine.

They'll come for him next.

Found this really interesting. I know it's essentially just a Republican black-vote-drive but it sets out the problems of Black America more clearly and simply than I've seen before.

Oversimplistic? Sure - but it's a complex topic. But from a top down view....

I like to look at who is behind this sort of thing because to me that is more interesting than the actual content, irrespective of political persuasion. In this instance it is Dennis Prager. A quick Google turns this up:

Dennis Prager, founder of the right-wing propaganda outlet Prager University, has a First Amendment right to lie about climate change, deny that straight people get HIV, viciously vilify Muslims, and declare that “men get turned on by any sight of female flesh.” He does not, however, have a right to upload these claims to YouTube and make money off them, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on Wednesday.

Now I don't know whether any of that is true or not, and whilst I'd love to agree with the bloke in the video, the mentality of Prager seems a tad skewed and this diminishes the credibility of anything he puts on YouTube in my eyes.

This is the problem we all have in the internet age - anybody can say anything to try to sway an audience and we don't know what is real any more...

It all sounds perfectly plausible - I mean, you know, when the sentence starts off Right Wing then the rest of it is sure to follow. I mean the first quote I found from him was:
Quote:
“The universities have all but shut down, not to mention demonized, nonleft ideas,” Prager says, and the media “are not far behind.”


Sure, they've no axe to grind Whistle

https://www.latimes.com/politics/story/2019-08-22/dennis-prager-university-conservative-internet-sensation

Indoctrination. INDOCTRINATION.

Agree in part. However, there's one key difference between the left and the right on that - with the right, facts are usually stated and with the left, they say 'well I hear the numbers but that's not my experience, and I feel'.

And there's the rub. Just because someone feels oppressed doesn't mean they are. But their perception becomes their reality when it's fed to them constantly like a mantra.

Which is one of the points the bloke in the video was making, and I agree to an extent. Tell a dog it is a chicken often enough and eventually it'll try to lay eggs....

What it also does is rubbish any genuine discrimination a person may experience. That is dangerous in any society.

Indoctrination works whether from Left, Right or a US 'think-tank' that purports to be rational. Very Happy

For anyone that hasn't heard about it:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-OCSu4ewO4

Love it when an old 70/80's relic thinks 'Oh fcuk it my career is fcuked now anyway' and says what they think.

Sounds like the final straw was Diversity's routine and his female friend getting mugged by three BAME's.

Watch it before he's banned from social media Thumbs Up


EDIT: And here's the follow-up

Regarding the Alesha Dixon comment, watch out Diggs, sounds like you've got a lot in common with him Laughing

The thing about Jim Davidson and lots of the 'old style' comedians is that they entertained a generation whom many were openly racist. They weren't necessarily bad people, but they said things that most don't say today. As an example, my Nan used to call the Indian shop on the corner the 'undy-gundy' shop. Nowadays it would be known as the 'Paki' shop by some instead. I don't think the sentiment changes, but as a society most of us have learned that calling people things that offend them isn't a nice thing to do.
