ACADEMIC FOOLS

By Pete Moore On December 1st, 2019

The (latest) London Bridge terrorist was at a conference organised by Cambridge University. That’s how he came to murder two Cambridge graduates, Saskia Jones, 23, and Jack Merritt, 25. That’s this Cambridge University:

Cambridge University has rescinded its offer of a visiting fellowship to Jordan Peterson, the self-styled “professor against political correctness”, after a backlash from faculty and students.

A university where lethal, murderous terrorists are welcome but conservatives are verboten.

Left-liberalism is a mental illness.

  1. It didn’t take long. Barely an hour after the female victim was named.

  2. Try talking about the subject for a change.

  3. “but conservatives are verboten.”

    Jordan Peterson,if you were referring to him, is not a conservative.

  4. “Sighs”

    The guardian article is 9 months old

    The Learning Together scheme in London combines students from inside and outside of the prison to come together and experience a carefully structured academic-based course

    Apart from all the factual errors – its a great post

  5. O/T

    There’s comment on the internet that Nelly Dean has passed and it’s to be announced tomorrow.

    Don’t know if it’s internet rumour or legit.

  6. A university where lethal, murderous terrorists are welcome but conservatives are verboten.

    No mention of sympathy for the victims, instead we get a snarky post which comes close to saying that they deserved their fate.

  7. Which comes close to saying that they deserved their fate.

    I’ve been reading about the two victims and am expecting heavy showers of gloating over Aberdeen.

  8. It’s what I expected from Pete. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the work these two murdered graduates were doing. By all means attack the system that alllows foolish early release of violent dangerous terrorists, but not the people who at least try and deal with the consequences positively and try and do something with the fact that these people are back in society and may benefit from courses like these.

  9. kurt – what factual errors?

    Peter – where did I come even close to suggesting that the victims deserved it?

    ffs

  10. I’ve been reading about the two victims and am expecting heavy showers of gloating over Aberdeen.

    Really!! Do tell me why

  11. For the same reasons you mock rape and murder victims. Wishy washy do gooders hoisted by their own petard:

    Saskia had a great passion for providing invaluable support to victims of criminal injustice, which led her to the point of recently applying for the police graduate recruitment programme, wishing to specialise in victim support

    Saskia’s warm disposition and extraordinary intellectual creativity was combined with a strong belief that people who have committed criminal offences should have opportunities for rehabilitation

    Jack lived his principles; he believed in redemption and rehabilitation, not revenge, and he always took the side of the underdog

    We know Jack would not want this terrible, isolated incident to be used as a pretext by the government for introducing even more draconian sentences on prisoners, or for detaining people in prison for longer than necessary

    Jack’s passion for social and criminal justice was infectious. He was deeply creative and courageously engaged with the world, advocating for a politics of love. He worked tirelessly in dark places to pull towards the light

    If I’ve got it wrong no problem. Your new found sensitivitry is worth it.

  12. It depends who the victim is. If an advocate of open-borders gets offed by one of those who were welcomed by the departed, is said victim blameless? I’d reckon that the victim was just a poseur who calculated correctly that some people will be killed/raped/robbed and that it won’t be them so…..keep on posturing – and these cases are happening with increasing frequency

    The two Cambridge graduates, where Britain’s cleverest youngsters go to, just look like stupid, naive people who were unfortunate not to have had incremental lessons in the consequences of their naivety. A mugging would have had a beneficial effect: a terminal stabbing is very unlucky BUT, somebody was gonna die……

  13. QED.

  14. I agree with apl – Jordan Peterson is NOT a conservative. Here is the definition of a conservative:

    Yeah, I’m a conservative. I agree with slightly diluted versions of everything that the far-left pushes for and then, when they’ve shifted the Overton window further left, I’ll agree with what they originally proposed.

    I’m against trans-children until they push for trans-toddlers, then trans-kids seems pretty reasonable. It’s called – having principles

    QED.

    Paul – why not answer the question put instead of having a wank. The question is…..

    If an advocate of open-borders gets offed by one of those who were welcomed by the departed, is said victim blameless?

  16. The question is both ridiculous and pointless. Firstly, no a person is not responsible for the actions of a tiny minority just because they support policy a or policy b. Secondly, Usman Khan is from Stoke. So unless you want to put a border between London and Stoke then closed borders wouldn’t have helped.

  17. The only one culpable in a crime is the perpetrator.

    Paul – why not answer the question put instead of having a wank.

    Why not go and fuck yourself? Bullshitter.

  18. If I throw a milkshake at a fascist is the fascist also responsible? Because if he wasn’t a fascist in the first place then I wouldn’t have thrown the milkshake at him.

  19. //There’s comment on the internet that Nelly Dean has passed and it’s to be announced tomorrow.//

    Paul, if that refers to Queen Elizabeth, it’s probably due to the fact that “London Bridge is down” is the code for starting the operations planned for the Queen’s death.

    Someone may have read something like “London Bridge in lockdown” and got things mixed up.

    God Preserveth Her

    And just imagine: Britain right before an election, Brexit looming… and then the crowning of King Charles.

  20. Usman Khan is from Stoke

    A dog born in a stable is not a horse. A paki born in Britain is a paki, and they agree with that. The simple fact is that these non-Europeans are here in demography-changing numbers, to the point of native-Britons becoming a projected minority in our own country. Now, any Briton who supports that outcome is complicit in the demise of his/her own people so a premature departure at the hands of the ‘conqueror’ is merited.

    Note that, with time, I’m moving towards the position of the jew insofar as any people who are duped, duped and duped again by these liars deserve to lose whatever they had. Nature does not forgive perpetual naivety in any individual or group

  21. If an advocate of open-borders gets offed by one of those who were welcomed by the departed, is said victim blameless?

    If a parent who advocates for being able to drive on UK roads and owns a car, has one of their children run over and killed are they blameless.

    About as ridiculous the question you asked Allan. But I don’t expect you to see that.

    Pete Moore

    Can you please clarify where you disagree with Allan? Because I suspect that you don’t.

  23. Dave – it’s about virtue-signalling to one’s social peer group. The idiots have indeed run the calculation that some people will get murdered/raped/robbed but it’s highly unlikely to be him/her because he/she is middle-class and lives in a nice area with white friends, so it will be somebody else – and that allows the posturing to continue. Occasionally, and now more frequently owing to numbers of predator/prey, it isn’t ‘somebody else’ who gets it and if such social poseurs did not support the open-borders nonsense, the murderers would not be here, and this matter would not be discussed.

    Here’s what’s going on:

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/nov/24/at-least-20-migrants-feared-dead-after-boat-capsizes-near-lampedusa

    At least 20 migrants feared dead after boat capsizes near Lampedusa

    Five reported dead and 149 rescued from vessel attempting to carry group from Libya to Europe

    As one reads, the NGO boat took more than 160 migrants FROM LIBYA and headed towards Italy. This is organised invasion, funded by the usual suspect

    Peter – it is likely that Pete would disagree with

    where Britain’s cleverest youngsters go to

    because evidently, it isn’t so. Given the decline in national IQ, the cleverest do well to stay away from university and those massive debts, and feminist harridans

  25. As an aside, I don’t see why Pete M (or anyone else, for that matter) ought to feel a need to “express sympathy for the victims” in order for his (or anyone else’s) comment to be “credible” or whatever.
    (a) Did Pete M personally know any of the victims? Did any of us? Probably not.
    (b) This is a political forum, not an emotional-empathy-for-snowflakes forum.
    Therefore why should any commentator break down in faux “social media” tears? He has no personal connection to the victims and nor do any of the readers. We’re here to discuss the political / societal factors relating to the incident.

  26. As another aside, Prof Peterson has more intellect in his fingernail clippings than Jew-hating c**tscum Corbyn and his cabinet of primitives have in their dinosaur pea-brains.

  27. Left-liberalism is a mental illness.

    This should be interesting:

  28. Therefore why should any commentator break down in faux “social media” tears? He has no personal connection to the victims and nor do any of the readers.

    This is worthy of a sociopath. Sympathy for victims is a normal human response and has frequently been expressed on this blog over the years. If you find it tiresome you are free to **** off.

  29. I’m calling this one a hoax.

    Morgoth runs this video which queries the liberal system and how it withstands the events at the bridge. At 8.48 one sees two ‘tweets’ by the supposed father of victim Jack Merritt, the first of 21st November, just a few days before his son’s murder reads….

    Going to see my son in Bristol at the weekend: he LOVES the diversity, like most young people do. He’s the future: racist angry wanks is the past.

    That is a portentous post and absolutely preposterous yet, when set against the second ‘tweet’ just after his son’s death:

    My son Jack, who was killed in this attack, would not wish his death to be used as the pretext for more draconian sentences or for detaining people unnecessarily. RIP Jack – you were a beautiful spirit who always took the side of the underdog.

    the political points and pro-diversity cannot be clearer: doubling-down on the death of his own son? But who is the “underdog” that ‘jack’ supported?

    One of the people on the ‘transformational’ course murdered a 21-year-old woman who suffered from a learning disability by slitting her throat. In what way can such people be described as ‘the underdog’ except in the monstrously perverted mindset of liberal-do gooders or the narrators of a lie?

    Same ‘father’ wrote in The Guardian……

    ‘If Jack could comment on his death – and the tragic incident on Friday 29 November – he would be livid.’

    Jack was proud. Jack was absorbingly intelligent. Jack was fiercely loyal. Jack loved music, art, eating good food with his family, and having more than one pint with his mates. Oh, and in case you haven’t realised by now … he was also devilishly handsome.

    But Jack was also angry, frustrated, selfless, stubborn. He was angry because he saw our society failing those most in need. He was frustrated because the political elite have forgotten why it is important to be fair. He was selfless in his dedication to make things right in every second of his life. Jack devoted his energy to the purpose of Learning Together: a pioneering programme to bring students from university and prisons together to share their unique perspectives on justice. Unlike many of us, Jack did not just go to work. He lived and breathed fire in his pursuit of a better world for all humanity, particularly those most in need.

    If Jack could comment on his death – and the tragic incident on Friday 29 November – he would be livid. We would see him ticking it over in his mind before a word was uttered between us. Jack would understand the political timing with visceral clarity.

    He would be seething at his death, and his life, being used to perpetuate an agenda of hate that he gave his everything fighting against. We should never forget that. What Jack would want from this is for all of us to walk through the door he has booted down, in his black Doc Martens.

    That door opens up a world where we do not lock up and throw away the key. Where we do not give indeterminate sentences, or convict people on joint enterprise. Where we do not slash prison budgets, and where we focus on rehabilitation not revenge. Where we do not consistently undermine our public services, the lifeline of our nation. Jack believed in the inherent goodness of humanity, and felt a deep social responsibility to protect that. Through us all, Jack marches on.

    Borrow his intelligence, share his drive, feel his passion, burn with his anger, and extinguish hatred with his kindness. Never give up his fight.

    This is absurd, and I know fathers who have lost their sons and who cannot bring themselves to do anything until grieving moves on. This is prepared text with a political basis. Clearly, there are many identities being run by interagencies which have all presence on social media and for the duped, social media identities are real:

    https://www.cbsnews.com/news/so-why-does-the-air-force-want-hundreds-of-fake-online-identities-on-social-media-update/

    0001- Online Persona Management Service. 50 User Licenses, 10 Personas per user.
    Software will allow 10 personas per user, replete with background , history, supporting details, and cyber presences that are technically, culturally and geographacilly consistent. Individual applications will enable an operator to exercise a number of different online persons from the same workstation and without fear of being discovered by sophisticated adversaries. Personas must be able to appear to originate in nearly any part of the world and can interact through conventional online services and social media platforms. The service includes a user friendly application environment to maximize the user’s situational awareness by displaying real-time local information.

    This is the USAF in 2011 and one can be very sure that things have got much better since then.

    Here’s the body – where the Hell is everybody? Where’s the blood? Where are the mdeics? Where are the police?

    And then the dead guy just gets up:

    Clearly.

    Magnificent, absolutely magnificent.

  31. Ha! I love it. That’s the dodgy video I referenced a few days ago.

    These low IQ fools are so predictable. They just can’t resist.

  32. Peter,

    Therefore why should any commentator break down in faux “social media” tears? He has no personal connection to the victims and nor do any of the readers.

    This is worthy of a sociopath. Sympathy for victims is a normal human response and has frequently been expressed on this blog over the years. If you find it tiresome you are free to **** off.

    Well said Peter. I was going to say something similar.

  33. Yes, the only faux “social media” tears permitted on ATW are only those that can be used t forward a racial agenda for vulnerable young women who are victims of Asian predatory sex gangs.

    All others who are murdered, raped etc can be mocked.

  34. Very interesting report on the attack here. Let it all play out because it has some surprising revelations towards the end, and raises a few nice questions.

  35. Great read Noel.

    Some difficult questions at the end alright.
