Black Man Describes Whites As ‘Subhuman’, Silence Deafening.

By ATWadmin On April 17th, 2007 at 4:23 pm

Well, who on earth could be coming up with such racist trash? Zimbabwean political broadcast? Nation of Islam at it again?

Nope, the chief of the Commission for Racial Equality. Again. There must be something in the water, because someone’s brought Trevor Philips out into the light, and he’s managed to say the truly disgusting. Again.

The man who not so long ago sought to politicise religion by urging that BNP members be denied communion has, in a severely under-reported interview (which I can only find in one paper) at the STUC annual congress in Glasgow, described members of the BNP as ‘less than human’; referring to an alleged attack on an asylum seeker and her baby as a case study of racism. (Readers may remember that such reported assaults on foreigners and designated victim groups have on occasion turned out to be false, I wonder what will transpire on this new one)

Philips went on to say that "We as a society have a choice. In England we have the BNP. The path is to keep them out We need to change in an inclusive way." Quite how he intends to be inclusive whilst demonising a legal and democratic political party is anybody’s guess. Possibly I’m not quite human enough to grasp his logic because, though not a BNP member or supporter, I am white and something of a heretic from the Religion of Open Borders (TM).

I think perhaps it’s time the question of free choice and open politics was re-addressed. Surely people should have a right to vote according to their consciences, without being denigrated as subhumans or demonised as evil. Whether or not you agree with the BNP, in the face of the overwhelming incompetence displayed by the Big Three parties to deal with the issues most troubling the man-on-the-street, such as crime, immigration, terrorism, is it any wonder so many people turn, in desperation, to those who have been political pariahs for so long? Perhaps the problem isn’t so much with the BNP and its allegedly racist tendencies (something I’ve yet to be presented with any proof positive for) as with the active repression by the ‘proper authorities’ of anybody questioning the accepted multiculti narrative. More ‘tolerance’ for the ‘intolerant’ could go a long way. Perhaps Mr Phillips could do with remembering that before he opens his mouth again. As to the BNP, maybe it’s time the knee-jerk reactions were done away with and a conversation was had about them. Preferably one without Godwin’s Law.


Hat-tip to the Green Arrow for flagging this story up. For more bloggy reactions to Phillips ideas on excommunication for heresy against liberalism, see here, here, and here. Please note that A Tangled Web and its contributors are not now, nor have ever been, a member of the BNP, etc, etc.

“A SMART MOVE”

By ATWadmin On April 17th, 2007 at 12:25 pm

LOL – I did laugh when I read Ulster Unionist Leader Sir Reg Empey describe David Trimble’s switch to the Conservative Party as "a smart move"!  The UUP are now so reduced in stature, so humiliated in substance,  that they actuially hail the defection of their former leader to a different party as a minor victory. If it is right for Trimble to leave the Ulster Unionists and join up with the limp-as-wet-lettuce Cameronians, why shouldn’t every other Ulster Unionist now switch camps and also become Conservatives? Why be a Unionist if the Conservatives have the better policies? The Ulster Unionists are directionless, clueless and bound for political extinction. They won’t be missed.

GORDON, CAN YOU SPARE A DIME?

By ATWadmin On April 17th, 2007 at 11:58 am

Well then, who would now BET that UK interest rates are not set for yet another hike, on the heels of the news that the Consumer Prices Index registered inflation now sitting at 3.1%?  This is an 11 year high, and the Retail Prices Index which is a broader (And better) measure of inflation in the economy, has shot up to 4.8%, the highest since 1991.

What many analysts miss however, is a central driver of all this inflation. I’m talking about – The Government! Gordon Brown may like to pretend otherwise, but it is a result of his own wretched economic policies, his incessant stealth tax hikes, that is driving inflation up. When it comes to the Retail Price Index, that is the one that gives the game away because it is the one which more broadly captures the results of Brown’s messing about. The UK economy has become slowly strangulated over the past ten years with the sclerotic consequences of Prudence Brown’s interference, and he is desperate to get out of the Exchequer and into Number 10 before even more of the "Brown" stuff hits the fan!

A TRUE HERO – RIP.

By ATWadmin On April 17th, 2007 at 11:31 am

Like many others, I was sickened at the way in which some of those miserable apologists for kidnapped British sailors where hailed as being "heroes" on their return to the UK , even whilst whinging that their IPODS had been taken and the quality of suits provided by the Iranians was poor. So how about this for a contrast?

librescu.jpgA 75-year-old survivor of the Holocaust sacrificed his life to save his students in Monday’s shooting at Virginia Tech College that left 32 dead and over two dozen wounded. Professor Liviu Librescu threw himself in front of the shooter, who had attempted to enter his classroom. The Israeli mechanics and engineering lecturer was shot to death, "but all the students lived – because of him," Virginia Tech student Asael Arad – also an Israeli – told Army Radio.  "My father blocked the doorway with his body and asked the students to flee," Joe Librescu said in a telephone interview from his home outside of Tel Aviv. "Students started opening windows and jumping out"

He died that many others may live. ATW salutes this brave man and his family are in my prayers. I trust the BBC will give coverage to the nobility and self sacrifice of Professor Librescu. I hope ATW readers will all unite and pay tribute to this courageous soul. 

JUSTICE BEING DONE?

By ATWadmin On April 17th, 2007 at 11:19 am

Here’s a question for you which I have been reflecting upon having watched the poignant images of all those young bodies being taken away from Virginia Tech this morning. Suppose the killer had not shot himself, but instead had been captured alive. What should happen? I favour EXECUTION under due process, plain and simple. What would you do?

Talking Point – 17.04.07

By ATWadmin On April 17th, 2007 at 10:44 am

‘Only the BBC could skewer the tragedy in Virginia and create a platform for debate riddled with anti-American comment.  Furthermore, it is the only broadcaster who could find an American commentator who could somehow link the tragedy to the Left’s perceived inadequacies of President Bush’s administration.’  Discuss.

BT

By ATWadmin On April 17th, 2007 at 9:26 am

telephone.jpgOn a purely domestic issue, have any of the U.K. readers of this blog received a bill from BT recently?

If you have, have you also read the truly dictatorial  alterations to their Changes of Conditions of Service letter?

I won’t go into extraordinary detail, but suffice to state that I have terminated my service with BT, and am going with a different Service Provider; as I do not wish to associate myself with a Company who seems to believe that they alone can dictate how bills should be paid; how subscribers are able to cancel that same service, and how they treat customers who have paid their grossly-overpadded bills for years without complaint!

THE WAR ON CLIMATE…

By ATWadmin On April 17th, 2007 at 8:31 am

beckett.bmpI think that Margaret Beckett is easily the WORST British Foreign Secretary in living memory. And that’s saying something! If ever there was an example of someone promoted way above their ability – she is it. So how apt that the intrepid Beckett is going tell the UN that Climate change could lead to increased instability and world conflict. Beckett, who is chairing the Security Council’s first ever debate on global warming, will highlight the food and water shortages it..ahem.. may cause. This will make the security situation in the world worse, she will warn. (Funny how she gets to a “will” from a “may”, eh) Maybe she can use her charisma and spell binding way with words to get the UN to declare war on global warming and the UN security council can then issue a binding resolution forcing the Earth to stop warming? Perhaps the sun should also be brought to account and made to stop radiating that pesky sun spot activity? After all, vacuous rhetoric is ALL the UN can produce, so I can think of no-one more appropriate than Beckett to lead them in this pointless ritual.
