ATW Buzzwords

By Patrick Van Roy On June 30th, 2019 at 3:01 pm

Guest Post by Paul McMahon

One of the great casualties of the left – right battles on ATW over the years has been language. The buzzwords employed by ATW rightists for individuals have been varied and inventive, dhimmi, virtue signaller, globalist and collectively, the elite, the establishment, globalists, Common Purpose, the political class, Deep State, Bilderberg are some of the ones that immediately spring to mind from the ecletic word salad, alphabet soup of right wing newspeak  fuzzword phraseology.

The preponderance of this vernacular has of course increased exponentially with the election of Donny Boy as POTUS where ‘alternative facts’ , smoke and mirrors, blatent contradictions and such have turned the linguistic lexicon on its head to where the effect and substance of words mean absolutely nothing anymore. This can be seen regularly on the metaphorical pages of ATW in both the impish and not so impish chicanery of both some writers and regular commentators. 

In terms of political discourse this is of course tactical and the psychology of the use of this argot means that easily transferable but non specific, opaque labels can be applied to anyone you disagree with thus Donny Boy can continuously negatively carp on about ‘globalists’ while simultaneously administrating a global business empire and maintain the US global military base network. Boris Johnston and David Rees Mogg can wax lyrical about ‘elitists’ and ‘the establishment’ whilst being the very definition of multi millionaire elitists born into a privileged life who have reached the pinnacle of the established British media and financial worlds.

People who are critical of rightworld extremism are then attempted to have their criticisms quashed by being variously dismissed as ‘dhimmis’ ‘open borders guys’ ‘virtue signallers’ instead of having the points addressed. Indeed, what are the pages of ATW and the letters pages of the murkier British tabloid press but virtue signalling in reverse? Is it not the very thing that rightworld accuse others of? 

The jargon of the extreme right, with their talk of the omnipresent ‘elite’ and ‘establishment’  and the faceless Deep State and Common Purpose reminds me of the war in 1984 where an undefined enemy is geographically and psychologically distant yet at the same time supposedly ubiquitous and incredibly dangerous. 

That and of course the fact that Pete Moore writes for the Ministry Of Truth 😉

WE’RE IN SAFE HANDS

The President is always reaching out, even popping up in North Korea to meet with recalcitrant socialists. He is so dedicated to peace. Or maybe he’s getting tips for his own southern border security issues?

AND THEY COMPLAIN ABOUT CRICKET

By Pete Moore On June 29th, 2019 at 8:23 pm

I have no idea what “top of the 4th” and all that means. Unless you’re into a sport its jargon can seem impenetrable. But I see that some twitter types (Americans, so they must know what’s going on) are complaining about how long this bat/ball thing is taking. They think Britons will get bored. We invented a sport which can take five days to get a result, which even then it can be a draw, so that’s not a problem. I’ve watched a bit of this malarky in the London Stadium. The scoring is baffling. I don’t know if anyone’s actually scoring any runs/points/whatever. But I can see the parallels with cricket. Someone delivers, someone bats, and everyone sits in the stands drinking.

THOSE CLIMATE DEL BOYS

By Pete Moore On June 29th, 2019 at 6:57 pm

This week’s climate landmark is the “record” high temperature in France. The southern village of Gallargues-le-Montueux reported 45.9C (114.6F) on Thursday, beating the previous record by a whopping 1.8C. That’s a margin usually put down to stimulants. And that’s what we have in this case. This is the weather station in Gallargues-le-Montueux (more images here). They’ve put it on a terracotta roof, which makes a change from the usual end-of-a-runway location, but terracotta!

Fired clay has been used to tile roofs for thousands of years because it absorbs heat and radiates it back, keeping the house below cool. Here it’s radiating three feet up to the monitoring equipment. I don’t blame the French. They’re a slapdash race. Convenience always trumps doing the job right with them. But the climate crowd ought to know better. Maybe they do. It wouldn’t be the first time they’ve cooked the temperature books. So I have no doubt that it was a sizzler this week, but it wasn’t a record.

ATW QOTD

By Pete Moore On June 28th, 2019 at 8:01 pm

“Let everyone be happy, we have no problem with that. But this must not be allowed to overshadow the culture, traditions and traditional family values of millions of people making up the core population.”

– Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin

Vladimir Putin is so wise. In an interview with the FT he blasted degenerate left-liberalism as “obsolete” and multiculturalism as “no longer tenable”. My only quibble is that so-called multiculturalism was never tenable, but always a hateful ideology.

You can see why the likes of the controversial and degenerate British state broadcaster hate him. (Our) culture, traditions and traditional family values are everything they hate.

The full interview is here. He makes genuinely interesting observations on why so-called populism now dominates much of the West.

ATW FRIDAY NIGHT JUKEBOX

By Pete Moore On June 28th, 2019 at 7:49 pm

Because Friday night is Music Night: Sexy Sadie, what have you done?

I met an American this week who left the US because of President Trump. They actually exist, these people. At least one of them does.

It was a work thing. I twigged the accent and asked where she’s from. Chicago she says. So how does a woman from Chicago end up in Oxford, I asked. (We were in Oxford, you see.) She said that Donald Trump was elected so she packed her bags and flew to England. Got a job and a place in Oxford.

I was like “What the- really?” while making a miserable job of keeping the mile-wide grin off my face. I was surprised as much as amused. She looked normal and not at all mental. But she’s happy in Oxford, so good luck to her. And the line from The White Album, Side Three came to mind, because she was a bit of a looker too.

I hope you have a great weekend. As always, feel free to post your top tunes down below –

THE DALAI LAMA IS SO WISE

By Pete Moore On June 28th, 2019 at 6:33 pm

The controversial British state broadcaster is so hateful and destructive. It sent a silly woman to confront the Dalai Lama about his view that refugees ought to return to their homelands. The Dalai Lama isn’t a Tory. He doesn’t flap like a fish on the hook when baited by the ultra-left.

Note this woman’s BBC-surprise face when Mr Lama says that Europe cannot be Islamic or Africanised. “There’s nothing wrong with that, is there?” this brainwashed simpleton asks. Of course there is. Everything is wrong with it. Europe is the cradle of civilisation because European men made it so.

The left once opposed colonialisation. They are now the greatest of colonisers, against the advanced nations.

OH DEAR

By Pete Moore On June 28th, 2019 at 6:21 pm

@DailyMailUK

Entire British family of 12 who fled their home in Luton to join ISIS in Syria are all now DEAD

I see that a one-bedroom council flat has become available in Luton. Labour will see about fifty fewer postal votes at the next General Election.

Dems Hold Trump Rally in Miami

By Phantom On June 28th, 2019 at 1:03 pm

Someone start an investigation. All the Dem contenders are colluding with Trump. They’re doing everything they can to ensure Trump’s reelection.

Last night, they all raised their hands in support of covering illegal aliens for health care.

Back in 2009, a Republican congressman yelled ” you lie ” when President Obama denied that the Democratic position was to cover illegals in Obamacare. Well, Obama probably did lie then, they all lied. The no longer stealth position of the Democrat Party is for open borders, to have no immigration controls at all, and to give the illegal all the rights of the citizen.

Some took the position the solution to our deep health care problems was ” medicare for all “, a plan that would abolish private health care in the US and replace it with universal medicare. That is a deeply stupid position for a couple of reasons at least. Medicare intentionally underpays doctors and hospitals for their services. Cheating doctors and hospitals for everything that they do as a matter of policy will cause more doctors to retire early, more rural and other hospitals to close. Second, private health care works very well for many people. There’s no need to force it to go away. The problem isn’t private health care or private insurance, the problem is that there is no mechanism to ensure coverage for everyone.

The disgusting Kamala Harris turned to Senator Biden and said ” I do not believe you are a racist “, and then attacked his record on forced busing. Well when someone starts by saying that they’re not calling you a racist, they’re calling you a racist. And Biden’s position then was not incorrect.

We have a criminal scatterbrain president. The Democratic candidates are worse. Like Dandy Don said, turn out the lights, the party’s over.

HOMOGENEITY IS OUR STRENGTH

By Pete Moore On June 27th, 2019 at 7:05 pm

French society used be cohesive, trustful and based on shared identity. Only such societies can sustain themselves through the horrors of Verdun, or come back together after half of the country was occupied by the National Socialists while the other half governed by National Socialist puppets. Only natural social glue can bind the parts back together. But something went wrong. So wrong that Macron is going all Bismarckian. My emphasis –

France’s Macron brings back national service

The French government has introduced a plan to bring back national service for all 16-year-olds.

It was an idea put forward by Emmanuel Macron in his presidential campaign, to promote a sense of civic duty and national unity among French youth […]

The goal of this new-style national service, the government says, is to encourage young French citizens to take part in the life of the nation, and promote social cohesion.

Mass immigration has filled the suburbs with people who hate France, will never be French and who spend a lot of time trying to kill French people. French society is now so Balkanised that supposed left-liberals are turning to martial values to instill a sense of Frenchiness. Good luck with that.

Trust and a sense of brotherhood underpin society. That comes from knowing you are the same tribe and the inheritors of the same cultural legacies from the same forebears. “Society” cannot be imposed artificially. It can only evolve organically.

Diversity is national and civilisational death. Enrichment kills trust and fellow feeling.. Homogeneity is our strength.
