PROUD TO BE A GAMMON

By Pete Moore On May 14th, 2018

The Left has a new racial insult.

Apparently “gammon” is a derogatory name for ruddy-faced conservatives. As usual with English, we can infer much else from a word. It means that we’re racist, sexist, patriotic throwbacks who hate the EU, think that there are too many foreigners stinking up the gaff and who want our country to chart its own path in the world.

I’m guilty on all counts.

Let’s be honest, we gammons made the world. We dragged the world and its undeserving primitives from barbarity and servitude into the modern age. Ruddy-faced conservative men are great. All that is good in the world came from us.

The Left is so hopelessly myopic that it has no idea how it will come to regret it’s new word. One racial insult allows another. It’s white, middle class loons who have taken it up. Even the BBC is putting it about. Thanks, we get the new rules. But any retorts will be aimed at people unfortunate enough not to be white and great, like us gammons.

    The crybullies of the right are hamming it up over a term of mockery to deflect from their own poisoning of the political discourse
    nails it petem

  2. Owen Jones: “It’s ok when we do it.”

  3. I thought that “gammon” referrerd to all those faces bloated and red with rage ever since blacks got equality, women got the vote and almost a century of constantly losing arguments while the world moves on without them.

    Is a beautiful artcile only an oxfrd graduate could right .
    oops i been saying this for over a year:

    Get your hankies ready, for I am here to share a story of woe and oppression. The nation’s truly subjugated minority, affluent middle-aged white men in the shires who turn pink with rage at the thought of immigrants or taxes, are under siege. Golf clubs across the land abound with dark mutterings: you can’t even racially abuse Diane Abbott on Twitter, or call for Muslims to be deported, without the fascist left crushing your rights and freedoms by disapproving of things you’ve said. But the cruellest oppression since Jim Davidson left his prime-time Big Break slot has come to pass: the left are now calling socially reactionary, affluent England “gammon”.

    hilarious petem

  5. We dragged the world and its undeserving primitives from barbarity and servitude into the modern age.

    Ah yes, the ‘greatest gift ever to an undeserving world’

    Jesus, that really came back and bit you in the arse didn’t it?

  6. jude –

    Look at the comments. That’s another Jones piece ripped to pieces.

    The Left has long insisted that people must not be judged by race or age. It’s nonsense of course, but that’s the Left’s rules. But it’s ok to judge by race, age (and sex) when it’s white men.

    Look, I don’t mind. Let’s have it all out there. I’m for free, unfettered speech (I’m not a commie see), but don’t be hypocritical.

  7. petem
    “Gammon is a racist slur, we are told. Let me put this gently: affluent white men with reactionary opinions are not a race. White people mocking other white people over their skin colour is not racism.It is a term about political views and how they are expressed.”

    but yeah see what happens if i use the term whiney whitey , so deeply offensive eh
    a disgusting rascist comment eh! .. kinda hits raw nerve , its obvious .
    nowhere to hide mate .. but spin it out of all truth, as you are skilled at 🙂

  8. but yeah see what happens if i use the term whiney whitey , so deeply offensive eh

    No. Adults don’t take offence (as we Britons spell it).

  9. triggered

  10. Define gammon

    A victory in backgammon reached before the loser has succeeded in removing a single piece. tr.v. gam·moned

  11. Someone wrote Gammon isn’t a race, rather it is a lifestyle choice driven by warm ale.

  12. What a hoot! If you wanted to choose a word to insult or demean someone, I think ‘Gammon’ would be right down there on page 873! Even the sound of the word summons up imagery of red-bloodedness, meatiness, substance, rawness. To say it, you have to start by saying “Gah!” which probably makes cuckolded EU trans-metro-conchita-wurst men wet their silk knickers before you’ve got to the second syllable. And they imagine we’re supposed to be offended by it?! It sounds great, I’m gonna have a badge made.
    Let’s see now, I;ll try and invent a name for whimpering lefties…. Walter. Yes, that’s it: I name thee “Walter E.U. Pitherington-Dampsplash”.

  13. Not sure about Gammon but most of us here certainly know how to ham it up with our over excited commentary on ATW 😉

  14. Is there a principle of reciprocity in this matter? For example, if a black calls me a gammon, can I call him a nigger, or is that ‘disproportionate’? Likewise, if a poof calls me a gammon, can I call him a poof?

  15. I;ll try and invent a name for whimpering lefties…. Walter. Yes, that’s it: I name thee “Walter E.U. Pitherington-Dampsplash”.

    Lol! 🙂

    Magnificent!

  17. Brilliant:

    Looks like we finally found a type of racism Brendan O’Neill won’t effectively defend on spurious free speech grounds, well done my dudes

  18. they’ve missed it anyway gammon is mostly taking aim at privileged angry whiteman
    who just doesn’t understand why the the sun doesn’t shine anymore , and even that quote is from a john osborne play 1955 “Look back in Anger”
    there’s nothing new under the sun, the wretched bemoaners have always been there, just been “beefed” up by UKIP, “hammered” by logic, in the same way as you can take twaddle protest seriously, same applies here. Owen JOnes is very good at these polemics his article was spot on, funny seeing the gammons squirm and wriggle as they try to avoid the mirror crying “That’s not me – you racist ” – the truth will out ..:)

  19. Jude, what do you think of this

    “Well, that Sunday Albert was home, they had a hot gammon,
    And they asked me in to dinner, to get the beauty of it hot”

    Know it? I always wondered about those lines.

  21. Paul McMahon,

    Ah yes, the ‘greatest gift ever to an undeserving world’

    Jesus, that really came back and bit you in the arse didn’t it?

    It certainly has Paul. But it’s on a long list of complete shite the Pete comes out with, on a fairly regular basis.

  22. Haha know it well Noel From the wasteland .
    One of my party pieces is quoting huge chunks of the 4 quartets.and the love song of Alfred Prufrock which is great fun.

  23. There weren’t enough racist names in the UK, so they had to invent new ones.

    I know a number of these ” ruddy faced ” English, good friends of mine. They don’t hate anyone, but I guess it’s trendy to hate on them.

    Progress.

  24. ‘Gammon’ is racist and insulting you cucked, dhimmi, snowflake.

  25. //but I guess it’s trendy to hate on them.//

    Oh for God’s sake. Nobody hates them.

    The majority of those ”ruddy faced” Englishmen are liberals, are generally cool about immigration and support the liberal Labour and Conservative parties. Get over it.

  26. tis part of the banter tom, we’re commies they’re gammon, that what they call us.
    But don’t like the return serve.
    don’t you find it mildly amusing amusing to some degree to hear the complaints of those who have benefited by centuries of accumulated privilege and a society systematically rigged in their favour? esp when you compare that to real issues of poverty, discrimination and so forth. is your position a moral equivalence ? poor whiney whitey in other words has it so hard hankies drenched when gibralter was handed over. Do you not find anything ridiculous about that ? cos those tears are not equivalent to the real pain of been robbed, they are tears when you have to give something up that you once took for granted was yours , in other words you robbed it . can’t you see the fake and the real here phantom?

    you got form on dodging these type questions, are you up for it today ? I wonder

  27. centuries of accumulated privilege

    They’re the native population

    Do you criticize the Chinese for ” centuries of accumulated privilege ” in China?

    These complaints are preposterous

  28. Phantom – let me explain jude’s position: there is no native population in Europe because whites are native to nowhere hence no native rights or privileges in the countries and societies created by whites in lands to which they would be considered native if they weren’t white.

  29. ” Privilege ” in this context is a slogan, a discussion-ender, end of

  30. Phantom

    I know a number of these ” ruddy faced ” English, good friends of mine. They don’t hate anyone, but I guess it’s trendy to hate on them.

    This is nonsense. It’s another bullshit ‘the left are evil’ story from Pete.
    I read news and political stories regularly, and I’ve never even heard ‘gammon’ used as an insult. No one I know hates ‘ruddy faced’ Englishmen.

  31. No one I know hates ‘ruddy faced’ Englishmen.

    Jude does, he hates all white Englishman.

    😏

  32. Harri,

    Jude does, he hates all white Englishman.

    Has Jude ever actually said that?

  33. Dave.

    Read his posts from past, he hasn’t got the balls to say it out loud and directly.

    He doesn’t need to.

  34. Dave.

    Why do you think Jude keeps getting banned?.

    It’s not because of his abundance of pleasantness.

    😏

  35. Wonderful stuff…

    ‘My conduct, Pugstyles,’ said Mr Gregsbury, looking round upon the deputation with gracious magnanimity —‘my conduct has been, and ever will be, regulated by a sincere regard for the true and real interests of this great and happy country. Whether I look at home, or abroad; whether I behold the peaceful industrious communities of our island home: her rivers covered with steamboats, her roads with locomotives, her streets with cabs, her skies with balloons of a power and magnitude hitherto unknown in the history of aeronautics in this or any other nation — I say, whether I look merely at home, or, stretching my eyes farther, contemplate the boundless prospect of conquest and possession — achieved by British perseverance and British valour — which is outspread before me, I clasp my hands, and turning my eyes to the broad expanse above my head, exclaim, “Thank Heaven, I am a Briton!”’

    The time had been, when this burst of enthusiasm would have been cheered to the very echo; but now, the deputation received it with chilling coldness. The general impression seemed to be, that as an explanation of Mr Gregsbury’s political conduct, it did not enter quite enough into detail; and one gentleman in the rear did not scruple to remark aloud, that, for his purpose, it savoured rather too much of a ‘gammon’ tendency.

    ‘The meaning of that term — gammon,’ said Mr Gregsbury, ‘is unknown to me. If it means that I grow a little too fervid, or perhaps even hyperbolical, in extolling my native land, I admit the full justice of the remark. I AM proud of this free and happy country. My form dilates, my eye glistens, my breast heaves, my heart swells, my bosom burns, when I call to mind her greatness and her glory.’

  36. Jude is probably just a bit grumpy, because Ramadan has started.

    Hunger makes you grumpy..

    😀

  37. what dya think Dave? lol Harri’s spin and suggestion, the power of suggestion
    “He hates all white englishmen” is a fine example
    rather than deal with the point which is :

    Get your hankies ready, for I am here to share a story of woe and oppression. The nation’s truly subjugated minority, affluent middle-aged white men in the shires who turn pink with rage at the thought of immigrants or taxes, are under siege. Golf clubs across the land abound with dark mutterings: you can’t even racially abuse Diane Abbott on Twitter, or call for Muslims to be deported, without the fascist left crushing your rights and freedoms by disapproving of things you’ve said. But the cruellest oppression since Jim Davidson left his prime-time Big Break slot has come to pass: the left are now calling socially reactionary, affluent England “gammon

    now Harri, if you are one of them , i can see why you’re getting upset
    but if you’re not , why even worry about it .. or bother defending ..?

  38. correct me if I’m wrong Harri as you like to get things out in the open correct

    Read his posts from past, he hasn’t got the balls to say it out loud and directly.

    so presumably you have the balls to stand for what you believe in so :

    lets do a tick box: taken from the above:

    Harri : acts like he’s part of “The nation’s truly subjugated minority” – tick
    Harri : affluent middle-aged white men in the shires ——————— tick
    Harri : turns pink with rage at the thought of immigrants or taxes ——– tick
    Harri : supports and post in glee twitter: “racial abuses of Diane Abbott” —-tick
    Harri : call for Muslims to be deported ………………………………tick
    Harri: regards fascist left crushing as your rights and freedoms ————tick

    dunno about the golf, maybe you do maybe you don’t ..
    wriggle room there .. lol

    Harri: Its gammon allover mate, a perfect e-fit wouldn’t you agree ?

    They got you Harri and there’s nothing you can do about it .. (pmsl )

    Good one eh , your best bet is to laugh it off …

    cmon Harri which of these dya most look like ?
    make my day , go on make jude’s day :

    Harri

  39. now Harri, if you are one of them , i can see why you’re getting upset
    but if you’re not , why even worry about it .. or bother defending ..?

    It’s fun… 😂

  40. Harri : acts like he’s part of “The nation’s truly subjugated minority” – tick

    Wrong.

    Harri : affluent middle-aged white men in the shires ——————— tick

    True.

    Harri : turns pink with rage at the thought of immigrants or taxes ——– tick

    Wrong.

    Harri : supports and post in glee twitter: “racial abuses of Diane Abbott” —-tick

    Diane Abbott’s is the racist…so, Wrong again.

    Harri : call for Muslims to be deported ………………………………tick

    Wrong.

    Harri: regards fascist left crushing as your rights and freedoms ————tick

    Wrong.

    😁

  41. Harri: Its gammon allover mate, a perfect e-fit wouldn’t you agree ?

    Gammon,

    That’s rather endearing.

    😀

  42. dunno about the golf, maybe you do maybe you don’t ..

    Wrong again.

    Jude.

    Have another go.

    😁

  43. Harri: Its gammon allover mate, a perfect e-fit wouldn’t you agree ?

    Gammon,

    That’s rather endearing.

    😀

    yeah I liked that one ..

    well mate I’m not saying anymore , this was in a reponse to the asbsurd idea that I hate white people, its for others to reflect on the ticks/denials

    It s anew dawn its a new day and Im feeling good
    https://youtu.be/OfJRX-8SXOs

  44. There is no native population in Europe because whites are native to nowhere hence no native rights or privileges in the countries and societies created by whites in lands to which they would be considered native if they weren’t white.

    Jude – the above is your position. If not, where do you consider white Europeans to be native to, with all the rights, protections and privileges duly accorded to native peoples by the UN?

  45. Jude.

    What happened to this “I’m taking a long break from ATW” 😉

    At least that one would have been voluntary.

    its for others to reflect on the ticks/denials

    Jude mate.

    No-one else actually cares. It’s just you.

  46. allan that’s gobbeldygook realpolitick is the thing,
    whites are the natives, they call the shots, what i deplore is the BS victimhood at play , the claim that they are the nation’s truly subjugated minority, affluent middle-aged white men in the shires who turn pink with rage at the thought of immigrants or taxes, that they are are under siege.
    i don’t think people know what suffering is if they claim to be the white natives oppressed
    its a joke like the twaddle protest .
    the only thing you can say in fairness is some aspects of accomodation are being asked of all of us .. but hey that’s the thing multi-multiculturalism is ok by and large by me and the commies, but its your bugbear, but pls don’t say its a cross you carry, that would be to mock the Lord . you’re being invited to give up your prejudices is all ., and boy you guys fight with all the bitterness and pettiness you’d expect from a priveleged set .
    I’m not buying it, others can, phantom buys it, sell him some more .
    He’ll take it , not me 🙂
    that’s my position.

  47. Harri like I said I stepped in because you wrote a falsehood to Dave Alton
    who hopefully will pop in and give his views later ya aul gammon 😉

  48. Jude.

    You have a bad habit of trying to drag others into your petty little hate fests..

    How old are you… 12?

  49. uhh no harri you started it :

    Dave Alton, on May 15th, 2018 at 5:40 PM Said:
    Harri,

    Jude does, he hates all white Englishman.

    Has Jude ever actually said that?

    Dave will explain later your clumsiness
    as you are unable to look in the mirror

  50. harri I don’t wish for you to have another miserable day
    check out this great song ..https://youtu.be/tbdSQ8MLnYs
    dunno if you listen at your car-wash painting job 😉

  51. oh and harri this petty little hate-fest you call
    most here agree that the gammons are the ones that indulge in that kinda thing
    virtually everytime they speak ., so I’m not buyinh that one either.
    Harri you’re a gammon through and through, but its obvious you don’t like it .
    well that’s though, I’m called a commie daily on a petty hate fest by petem
    take a look around you , and do clean that mirror , you haven’t looked in it for a while
    me i look daily , as best i can face the truth .. adios have a great day …
    all this talk of ham is making me hungry .. 🙂

  52. |Harri me old mucker play that song when you get home , i think even the dogs will sing for you .. lemme know how it went down .. everyone loves the fathers true embrace.
    that’s where I’m coming from .. way above the BS .. but i get distracted, selah 🙂

  53. Harri.

    Read his posts from past, he hasn’t got the balls to say it out loud and directly.

    He doesn’t need to.

    I certainly never got the impression from Jude that he hates whites. He may be critical of them, but that doesn’t mean he hates them.
    However, I don’t read everything posted on this site, so if you have some evidence of Jude hating whites, you can link to it.

    Why do you think Jude keeps getting banned?.

    I’d be surprised if it’s for hating white people. Some people who post on here hate entire races, but I don’t see them getting banned for it.

  54. Read his posts from past, he hasn’t got the balls to say it out loud and directly.

    In all fairness I think that there’s more than Jude here that that accusation could be levelled against.

  55. its truly a red herring this one guys, but for slow learners as Own Jones explained
    “No, ‘gammon’ is not a racial slur. Now let’s change the conversation”
    read the article ..
    https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/may/14/gammon-not-racial-slur-change-conversation

    I think Harri deep down knows that its a ridiculous accusation put upon me,
    he simply trying it on ( swinging the lead ) as a distraction ..
    now for some gammon at the supermarket 🙂

  56. “Gammon” is punching up in a way that, say, “chavs” is punching down.

    That’s a superb point.

  57. That rightwingers are now pushing the use of the word “gammon” as racism is age-old example of how the privileged crave a sense of persecution, that they can target genuinely oppressed minorities while claiming they are the real victims.

    Another superb point.

  58. Perhaps the game is to bog the left down in never-ending arguments about completely pointless subjects and if so then boy have I been played.

    Wow! I think that’s Pete Moore’s game plan on ATW.

    That was a good article you linked to Jude, thank you.

  59. thanks Dave, and tbh this site is almost exclusively commies and gammons
    for some , and they know who they are, its a precise e-fit
    for others its an approximation.

    Nevertheless the whole point of ATW is to present your views and have them challenged
    those are the good bounndries, we all fall outside sometimes, but the rule of thumb is back up your arguements if they are challenged.
    When others put points accross which you haven’t made, that in and of itself takes us away from issues. So beware.
    so to Harri and others I will respond to statements I have made, but not statements you claim I have made but have not actually made, 99/100 its a misinterpretation plus a huge waste of my time .. Good day .

  60. That rightwingers are now pushing the use of the word “gammon” as racism is age-old example of how the privileged crave a sense of persecution…….

    Here are some ‘privileged’ whites who live in Rotherham:

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-south-yorkshire-28939089

    At least 1,400 children were subjected to appalling sexual exploitation in Rotherham between 1997 and 2013, a report has found.

    Children as young as 11 were raped by multiple perpetrators, abducted, trafficked to other cities in England, beaten and intimidated, it said.

    Several staff described their nervousness about identifying the ethnic origins of perpetrators for fear of being thought as racist
    Professor Alexis Jay

    Prof Jay said: “No-one knows the true scale of child sexual exploitation in Rotherham over the years. Our conservative estimate is that approximately 1,400 children were sexually exploited over the full inquiry period, from 1997 to 2013.”

    Revealing details of the inquiry’s findings, Prof Jay said: “It is hard to describe the appalling nature of the abuse that child victims suffered.”

    The inquiry team found examples of “children who had been doused in petrol and threatened with being set alight, threatened with guns, made to witness brutally violent rapes and threatened they would be next if they told anyone”.

    Aren’t those young white girls of Rotherham privileged to have had sex with so many pakis, and also to be doused in petrol and threatened with being set alight? Well, in fact, they’re nothing special – many other young girls in all sizeable English towns have been equally privileged to the extent that it’s not a privilege at all, but more of a rite-of-passage for white girls. Bizarrely, girls of Pakistani lineage don’t have that privilege/rite-of-passage.

  61. Je suis un gammon

  62. Oh dear Allan even giving you the widest interpretation of Owens brilliant article that is just way out there dude. Selah

  63. Definitely more gammon than game on big al
