A foreign, anti-fascist, EU loving BNP member?

August 4th, 2009 § 3 comments § permalink

I went swimming in the turgid mess of the BNP site last night but dropped my mojo and couldn’t get it together to get some coherent thoughts down. Oh well. Shit happens.

I still can’t get it sorted but my mind keeps returning to this post (links to BNP site, but don’t worry, thay ain’t getting no juice). It’s small things but hey, so fucking what?

The author is Titvs Advxas. Why would someone wanting to defend his country from the cohorts of foreigners invading his country to rape and pilage it via it’s benefit system and at the same time take all the jobs, and women too choose to give himself a foreign name?

Titvs Advxas. If not a real Roman name, it’s at least one that has been made up in the old Latin style, complete with ‘v’ used as in place of ‘u’. Someone who has taken a name from a country that invaded Britain to take control of us and prop up it’s mother empire so the invaders didn’t have to work so hard wants to save us from other foreigners that want to use us to prop up their mother countries so they don’t have to work so hard.
Did the irony not stand out a little there?

I also found it a little odd that a member of the BNP would admit to liking Star Trek. It is, apparently a ‘brainwashing distraction’ and it’s premise is something the BNP and their ilk despise…

In the Star Trek universe, humans developed faster-than-light space travel (“warp drive”) following a nuclear war and a post-apocalyptic period in the mid-21st century. According to this universe’s timeline, the first warp flight occurred on 5 April 2063. This technological feat attracted the attention of the Vulcans, an advanced alien race, who then made first contact with Earth. Aided by the scientific and philosophical teachings of the Vulcans, humans largely overcame many Earth-bound frailties and vices by the middle of the 22nd century, creating a quasi-utopian society in which exploration and knowledge replaced material wealth as the human civilization’s central pursuit. Humans then united with other sentient species of the galaxy, including the Vulcans, to form the United Federation of Planets.

After a nuclear war, man, through his pooled efferts presumably, achieve light speed travel. Some foreigners come and say hello and change the native society forever, making them forget their history then join a big union with other planets. It’s everything, apart from the light speed bit, that the BNP are fighting against. Open borders, people treated as equals and being part of another bigger union with rules handed down from above. It is (real) socialism and the EU and writ large and Titvs is just bursting for the DVD box set. Might be prudent to expect a call from the BNP enforcers, Mr Advxas

Titvs starts the post rambling on about Neil Armstrong, then Star Trek just to try and make a link from the anniversary of the moon landings, which his post missed by over a week, to Fat Nicks’ ‘victory’ speech…

Nick Griffin’s victory speech, his now famous Dam-busters analogy, in view of that impending 40th anniversary, could equally have drawn references to Neil Armstrong’s words.

“One small step for (two) men, One giant leap for British-kind”

So. Commandeering a famous line from an event that has and is uniting the world (well ok, not quit uniting, but getting some good co-operation between countries) and twisting it via a commie utopian sci-fi to fit their own isolationist, racist agenda.

Nice work Mr BNP.

Irony III

RTE News

Hundreds of people have been gathering to pay their respects to what they believe is an image of the Virgin Mary in a tree stump in Co Limerick

It happens all the time. Jesus in potates and stuff so why not in a tree stump, eh?

How the hell can a man of the cloth say this with a straight face is beyond me…

…we would also wish to avoid anything which might lead to superstition,’ said Fr Paul Finnerty.

It wouldn’t do to believe in silly stuff like that would it? Fer Christs sake, if you’re gonna believe that a man can rise from the dead, and that’s gotta be quite a hard thing to do, surely a picture of his mum in a tree is piss easy. Infact it probably explains why the preists are so nonchalant about it.

Picture the scene…

Rathkeale Community Council Graveyard Committee chairman Noel White said workmen sprucing up the church land saw the image when they cut the tree.

The sound of a chainsaw, the tree falls over and then…

‘One of the lads said look, our Blessed Lady in the tree,’ Mr White said. ‘One of the other lads looked over and actually knelt down and blessed himself, he got such a shock.’

Cue heraldic fanfare and shafts of devine light. The work men slack jawed in awe and reverence.
Enter stage right, Father Willie Russell with the words to bring everyone back to thier senses…

It’s only a tree.


Iain Dale: Peddlar of untrue allegations

May 20th, 2009 § 2 comments § permalink

My first post titled Irony was quite good, and involved Iain Dale. But this one is a cracker. And involves Iain Dale again.
(I was going to call this post something else and now this first bit doesn’t really work. I’m lazy and I like that post linked to so it stays.)

Tom Watson

Mr Watson complained of an article by Iain Dale, headed “Smears, glowering henchmen-like the Nixon White House” published in the Mail on Sunday on 12 April 2009 in which it was stated not only that Mr Watson was copied into emails sent by Downing Street press adviser Damian McBride to Derek Draper, but that he “encouraged” them. The emails were reported to have made serious and false allegations about the private lives of a number of Conservative Party MPs in the course of discussing proposals for a new website to be known as “Red Rag”.

As the Court heard today, Associated Newspapers Limited now accepts that these allegations are entirely untrue. In fact, Mr Watson was not copied into any of the emails exchanged between Mr McBride and Mr Draper. As Mr Watson has already publicly made clear, he had no involvement in or knowledge of the “Red Rag” website and he did not condone the content of the emails and, indeed, regarded them as completely inappropriate.

Iain Dale on Chicken Yoghurt and Liberal Conspiracy

Get your facts right

…and then gives a couple of different stories about having already apologised to Tom. Once in this post, which has no apology at all, and this one here that nearly has an apology. Well, Iain says an apology is owed, but never gets around to actually saying ‘I’m sorry’ or ‘I apologise’ or anything similar that says sorry.

What a card eh?

Now, in a similar vein, others, most prominently Manic has always had trouble with Iain and his comments with smears and accusations that aren’t true, as well as some more serious stuff recently (so many links to choose from, but this one will give you an idea, if you don’t already know), so, as Sunny says

Smug? Oh I’m just happy you forced Associated Newspaper to pay out “substantial damages” and its now on the record that you have smeared people without fully knowing the facts.

But Iain doesn’t just smear people and let other people do the same in his own comments, he likes to control other peoples comments, one of the things that he used to accuse Tim of regularly…

The Morningstar: Iain Dale – Nadine Dorries and New Media

  1. Comment amended upon request. So far she has not offered any explanation for claiming the amount of expenses. Comment amended upon request.

  2. I hope you will delete that comment from JHL. It is entirely untrue and probably libellous.

    Comment by Iain Dale — Tuesday, May 19, 2009 @ 7:33 pm

  3. Iain I have amended the comment. However, when I consider some of the comments I have seen you allow on your blog which attack other people on issues of both sexuality and on mental health, I think you should be paying far more attention to your own comments.

The Morningstar: Iain Dale Lies and Libel

Only last night self proclaimed leading UK blogger Iain Dale accused me of allowing an untrue and potentially libelous comment to be posted on this blog, here. The comment was aimed at one of his friends, that doyen of political blogging Nadine Dorries, I stupidly just gave in and amended the comment without consulting the author. At the time I didn’t want to start a ridiculous fight over a comment, mental health issues can suck the fight right out of you, but when I realised the the comment was essentially factual I Apologized to the author and posted a link to the relevant news paper story.

So Iain Dale lied to me, on this blog, in order to get a comment removed that was factual.

So, I present to you the King of Irony, Iain Dale.

Where Am I?
