Another Challenge

By ATWadmin On April 22nd, 2007 at 8:04 am

As politely, concisely and clearly as possible, define ‘anti-semitism’ in the sense of it affecting Jews (I am well aware that some Arabs can semantically be considered Semitic as well). To coin Andrew’s phrase:

‘Discuss’. 

Change at a Snail’s Pace

Why France should be the most visited country in the world totally baffles me.  It has a great capital; that’s about it.  Nothing else that France can offer is incapable of being beaten by its neighbours.  The French Riviera isn’t a patch on its Italian equivalent (I have been to both); its Alpine resorts are beaten out of sight by those in Switzerland and Austria; its cities are dull and uninspiring compared to those in Germany; and its economy has been knocked for a six by Britain’s for the better part of two decades.

It is the French economy that I wish to look at in the context of the French Presidential elections (give me a Monarch any day of the week).  It takes two days to set up a company in the UK; three months in France.  The Fifth Republic has employment laws so tight it is easier to make contact with Elvis at a séance than it is to fire an employee there.  Union militancy is rife; and suburbs are convulsed by rioting from Muslim youth.

A close contest is the most likely outcome, with Sergolene Royale fighting it out with Nicholas Sarkozy.  Although the latter is hailed as an incarnation of Margaret Thatcher, his economic policies are still light years away – both from the prescriptive medicine she dispensed to the UK, and from the requirements a stagnating economy with 10%+ unemployment needs.  Nothing any of the Presidential candidates are proposing will radically (that’s the key word) alter the direction of French economic and social policy.  What is on offer as far as I’m concerned is various shades of Left – from the social socialism of Royale to the putative national socialism of Le Pen.  In another thirty years a true renaissance might have occurred.  Meanwhile, whoever triumphs at the Élysée, the French economy will be in for much of the same.

Jack at 70!

jack.jpgTempus fugit!  And so it does.  Can one of Hollywood’s very best actors be 70 years of age?  Guess so.  His personal life and libidinous temptations do leave a lot to be desired but his acting prowess in unequalled.  Bursting on to the stage as the sidekick to Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper in Easy Rider, Jack Nicholson has since gone on to star in some of the most memorable roles in Hollywood history.  From his outstanding performance of Randle McMurphy in Kessey’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest to the menacing Jack Torrance in The Shining, Nicholson has done it all.  He is one of the very few actors who can perform well in both serious and comedic roles.

Seventy he may be, but I feel there is much more to come from the esteemed Mr Nicholson.  Happy birthday, Jack!!

 

Too Many Aliens

By ATWadmin On April 22nd, 2007 at 6:58 am

I, and others, have protested over and over again at the amount of foreigners and ethnic minorities living in this country.  Whether it be on the buses, in the shops, on the streets or on the news, the fact that this United Kingdom is now swarming with a completely unacceptable level of immigrants and their descendants is all too painfully obvious.

Immigration is like many other phenomena – perfectly acceptable in moderation.  What we have, and indeed what several other European nations have, is far from moderate.  However, what separates us from the rest of Europe is the desire of those in power here to elevate the opportunities and representation of immigrants above those of their own people.  Whole cities looking something like you would find in Africa or Asia; imported criminal methods at work; cultural alienation from people who refuse to accept our way of life; and a deep and increasing simmering resentment from the likes of people like me whose only insuperable barrier to the formal endorsement of the British National Party is their latent anti-Semitism and Left-wing economic policies.

We can rejoice that our opinions are now increasingly acceptable amongst the chattering classes.  The think-tank Civitas has castigated the government for permitting what is calls ‘unending’ mass immigration.  I guarantee that nothing will change whilst Labour is in power.  For what many academics failed to see in the New Labour experiment was the essential re-branding on a platform of economic issues.  On the classic socialist ‘hands across the water’ argument, Labour is fundamentally ‘old’.  The Left doesn’t see a country as a unit of patriotic achievement.  It is seen purely as a unit over which to exercise power.  Because there is no sentimental attachment to idea of Britishness, Labour – in quintessentially Leftist mode – is quite prepared to utterly bastardise this demographic notion with an opened floodgate of Slavs, blacks, Muslims, etc.  To stop, and hopefully reverse, this tide, you need a different party in power with the shackles of political correctness removed.  Enoch Powell’s ‘rivers of blood’ came true in one sense on 7/7.  It could, alas, well come true again on a bigger scale if something is not done.

Announcement: A Change of Strategy

By ATWadmin On April 21st, 2007 at 8:30 pm

I have been doing a lot of thinking about my role on ATW over the past 24 hours.  One of the biggest mistakes I think successive British governments made was not hitting Irish republicanism hard enough and not taking sufficient strides in incapacitating its ability to hit back.  I’ve realised it is utterly ridiculous to have such a strong belief with regards to the treatment of republicans as a whole and not to practice something similar on this blog.

I am, and will remain, an unashamed Unionist.  Nothing by way of insults or propaganda by republicans who not only seem to saturate this site, but many others as well, has done anything to lessen that belief.  If anything it has made it stronger and more strident.  I reject the notion of a ‘united Ireland’ under any circumstances and would wish that this future scenario (whatever its obvious remoteness) would be one tainted by massive political, economic and social upheaval on a scale large enough to make it utterly untenable.

I realise that I am somewhat of a hate figure for Irish republicans.  Fine. However much they detest me couldn’t even scratch the surface of my reciprocal loathing.  Yet here I have been, for three years and more, facilitating their poisonous opinions and initiated personal insults.  For what?  I don’t even believe in their so-called ‘right’ to live in any part of the United Kingdom, so why am I allowing my articles to become beacons of attraction for such Alpha-scum as Sean, Gaskin and Smcgiff?  If I believe the British State should have incapacitated the ability of Irish republicans to strike back, why do I not practice my belief by, henceforth, closing all my articles to response?

So that is what I’ve decided to do.  I will miss open debate with decent respondents such as Colm and Kloot.  They may have held what could be described as ‘soft nationalist’ opinions, but they tackled them in a pleasant and courteous way.  It is such a pity they too will be denied the ability to post responses.  Talking Point will be an obvious casualty of my new approach.  What won’t be different is the tone by which I describe those who adhere to Irish republican principles and, in particular, those who support Sinn Fein/IRA.  My patience with republican readers is at an absolute end.  If you believe (as I do) that every moment of life is precious, why waste it arguing with Provo-adoring filth?

Journalists would not tolerate everything they write as launching pads for a diatribe of hate.  Why should I?  I won’t be alone in choosing not to allow comment.  Many other weblogs do the same.  David and Samuel may have the tolerance to continue permitting such types to forward their contemptible opinions.  I do not!!!

PS. Apologies for the lack of articles over the last couple of days.  I’ve been attending to the business of helping my nan settle into her new surroundings.  There will be posts tomorrow and Monday.  On Tuesday I journey to Malta for eight days. 

ALTERED IMAGES…

By ATWadmin On April 21st, 2007 at 8:08 pm

dup update.bmpI came across this image of Dr Ian Paisley and his pals and it struck me as slightly ironic, shall we say? Note the sign in the background saying "No Terrorists (in Government)" My but how times have changed. Damned by his own words.

TREATING KIDS LIKE DOGS…

By ATWadmin On April 21st, 2007 at 5:55 pm

795151-783075-thumbnail.jpgThis is why our society is going down the toilet. This beavy of beauty has been spared jail for goading two toddlers to fight and then laughing as they filmed them exchange blows. The children’s own mother, grandmother and two aunts, repeatedly urged the two-year-old boy and his three-year-old sister to hit each other. The terrified boy, wearing a nappy and T-shirt, was shown crying and trying to escape after being punched in the face. But the women responded by taunting him, ordering him not to be a "wimp or a faggot" and to hit his sister back. These dysfunctional women should have been sent to jail for what they did to these poor innocent children. They videod the poor kids, trying to make them fight like DOGS. How cruel and depraved does it have to be? The judiciary fails us once again by failing to send the RIGHT message that such abuse of children carries a stiff penalty.

PRE-TEEN DECAPITATORS…

By ATWadmin On April 21st, 2007 at 5:50 pm

I see that the Taliban have hit a new low by using a boy of around 12 to behead a man they accused of spying for the US. Parts of a video of the beheading were broadcast on the Dubai-based al-Arabiya TV network. The Taliban said the dead man, Ghulam Nabi, had given the US information which led to an air strike in which a senior Taliban commander died. The video footage shows Mr Nabi being blindfolded with a chequered scarf and making what is said to be a confession. The boy, wearing a camouflage jacket and wielding a large knife, denounces him as a spy ….and then cuts off his head.

Just remember – the Religion of Peace AND love.

Answering An Anti-Semite’s Challenge

By ATWadmin On April 21st, 2007 at 5:35 pm

Dear Alan Hart,

You are an anti-semite. You say you will sue anyone identifying themselves who says so. So post your solicitor’s contact details in the comments and I’ll stitch you up even better in court than David Irving. I’ve left the same message on your Blog, though comment moderation means it’ll never be seen.

Bring it on.

(This post is in no way intended to reflect the views of David Vance or any other writers at A Tangled Web. Unless they choose to be associated with it in the comments as indeed can anyone else wanting to join in the condemnation of this ‘journalist’ and his views. If he has the cojones to answer the challenge instead of burying all the responses and pretending us Zionists are all indeed all ‘too cowardly to come out of hiding’ I’ll let you know.)
