WHY DOES THE MEDIA DO IT?

By Pete Moore On September 7th, 2018 at 7:05 pm

I’m under no illusions as to what the ATW commentariat thinks of me. I’ve read the comments. I don’t fool myself. No no no, don’t jump in. A man has to face the truth. And the truth is that I am that tough, fearless Englishman of your imaginations. Oh yes.

But not always. There are the odd occasions when fear grips hard and the blood runs cold. That’s when I see a spider. On the arachnophobia scale I’m almost falling off the end. Cannot stand the buggers. I once almost caused a hotel to empty in Australia when I saw a Huntsman spider by my foot, so loud were my shrieks. The image still gives me the willies.

So I really do wish the news sites wouldn’t accompany a story about spiders with enormous images of spiders. The BBC is at it today. This is the story:

Spider season: How to tackle an influx of arachnids

Great! Just what I need, I think. That’s what I’ll do this weekend. I’ll spider-proof my home. So I click the link, and – there’s an enormous photo of an enormous spider right at the top of the story. Is that necessary? Really? I know it’s just a photo, but the people most likely to click the link – hard, tough arachnophobes like me – don’t need to see it. Such things stay in the mind. They all do it. The Daily Mail especially, damn you Dacre.

Really, some things are not necessary.

A GOVERNMENT OF ALL THE TALENTLESS

By Pete Moore On September 7th, 2018 at 6:48 pm

“I didn’t understand things like when elections are fought for example in Northern Ireland – people who are nationalists don’t vote for unionist parties and vice-versa.”

That’s Karen Bradley, a Tory MP. It would be a surprising admission if she were only that, an MP. She also happens to be the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland.

She made that admission, and a few others, in an interview with PoliticsHome. How did she get the gig? Because she’s a close ally of Theresa May, and that’s it. That tells you all about politics. I don’t expect ministers to know everything about their portfolio. But Bradley’s admission goes way beyond that. It reveals an unworldliness about her, and a lack of interest in her country and current affairs.

She was presented as an A-List Tory candidate. She was given preferred treatment and fast-tracked to a seat in Cameron’s rush to “diversify” the party. By clinging to May she’s ended up in the Cabinet. But she has no interest in her country. So I’d be pretty sure that she’s a principle-free zone, the type who will vote any way that the whips order.

That’s how you end up in a Tory Cabinet.

Shallow Throat

By Mahons On September 6th, 2018 at 8:22 pm

I have little doubt that Trump’s White House is run in the chaotic manner described by the anonymous high level offical who wrote the Op-Ed piece for the New York Times. From a journalistic standpoint I think the Times was right to publish it. However, I think the author was wrong to release it in the manner it was released.
If Trump is as awful as he or she says, then they have a duty to publically say so. To resign from the unelected office they hold. The consequences will be the consequences.
This seems more like someone who wants to hedge their bets and seeks credit down the road for “telling us so” before the ship sinks. But if it doesn’t sink, then they keep their office and no doubt their place in Republican circles.
If appointed to office they took an Oath. And that Oath should not be taken lightly or undertaken anonymously.

WHOEVER COULD HAVE FORESEEN THIS?

By Pete Moore On September 6th, 2018 at 6:17 pm

A transgender prisoner has admitted sexually assaulting inmates at a women’s jail.

Karen White, 51, who was born male but now identifies as a woman, has pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual touching at New Hall Prison, Wakefield […]

Details emerged when White appeared at Leeds Crown Court to admit to a rape committed before she was jailed.

She previously admitted two further rape charges, which also happened outside prison.

So a convicted rapist claimed to be a woman and … they fell for it. He (he) went on to commit sexual assaults, in the women’s prison. Anyone surprised at this outcome ought to stay at home, permanently. You are too stupid to be allowed out.

Prior to this, staff and inmates had protested that five of mentally ill types had been transferred there. No doubt they were charged with anti-trans hate crimes. But they were justified. As always, trendy left wing policies lead to harm.

HOW BAD IS SWEDEN?

By Pete Moore On September 6th, 2018 at 5:58 pm

The gloom isn’t limited to native Swedes. Gamal El Fahl, an Egyptian refugee, says he will vote for the Sweden Democrats because of rampant crime in the Hjällbo district of Gothenburg, where he lives.

“Sweden has become dangerous since I came here 27 years ago. It will be a disaster if they accept more people from the Middle East like myself,” he said. “They are importing their values, their fanaticism.”

It’s so bad that even the muslim immigrants don’t want more muslim immigrants.

Sweden goes to the polls on Sunday. This is a country taken to the precipice by an iron progressive consensus. So overwhelming, it was virtually verboten to talk of race, ethnicity and immigration. It was like an Islington dinner party on a national scale. Not any more. The consensus has been smashed with the realisation that the vast majority of rapes, shootings and grenade attacks (yes, really) are done by muslims and Africans. It’s the realisation, that Swedes were having their homeland stolen from them.

Hence the rise of the moderates, the Sweden Democrats. Of course the globalist media describe them as “far-right” and “extremist”. It’s a badge of honour, patriots. Wear the labels with pride, because your Bolshevik opponents, who hate you and your country, have no other arguments.

The Sweden Democrats have risen from nowhere to riding high in the polls. Another cozy extreme left wing consensus in Europe is about to be smashed. Strength and honour to them. Strength and honour to patriots everywhere.

“THE DEEP STATE IS A CONSPIRACY THEORY”

By Pete Moore On September 5th, 2018 at 9:21 pm

In the New York Times: an op-ed by a senior White House official proclaiming that the Trump administration has been infiltrated by people working to stop him.

This is absolutely extraordinary. It doesn’t matter whether you’re left or right. Read this brazen admission, in the NYT.

WE HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR FROM RUSSIANS

By Pete Moore On September 5th, 2018 at 8:06 pm

They are inept.

Two Russian men have been named as the suspects in the attempted murder of Sergei Skripal. Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov are thought to be officers from Russia’s military intelligence service, the GRU. Scotland Yard and the CPS say there is enough evidence to charge the men. They won’t be charged, even if they exist, because they’re in Russia.

So Russia’s finest traveled on Russian passports. They left traces of Novichok in their London hotel room. They relied on a Sunday train service (amateurs!) to get from London to Salisbury, where they walked around for two days being picked up by every CCTV camera in town. Then they smeared Novichok on Skripal’s door handle and dumped the rest. Skripal survived and the rest is now at Porton Down.

Pros would have done the job and left no trace. I’m happy to believe that the story told today by Theresa May is true. At least we have names, dates, photos and solid accusations. A story which can be tested. But this is the same as when Alexander Litvinenko was murdered. The accused Russians in that case left a trail of Polonium around London so thick it was traced to a departure gate at Heathrow.

If this is Russia’s best then they are too inept, too sloppy, to worry about

IT LOOKS LIKE ISRAEL WILL SURVIVE

By Pete Moore On September 5th, 2018 at 6:26 pm

These have been popping up around central London.

I wonder who’s paying for them. It can’t be cheap to hire a load of space in the middle of London. Probably someone with Labour Party connections. That’s where all the antisemites seem to be gravitating. But hey, they might be right. Israel might be a racist creation. Good for Israel if it is. It means they will survive. It means that Israelis will not become strangers and then persecuted in their own homeland. Tribes don’t mix. Human experience has conclusively shown that.

But if Israel is a racist creation then so are many other countries, some of them Islamic. Maybe Pakistan ought to be stood down and reincorporated into India? Best not, come to think of it. Bets keep’em holed up where they are.

Shame on Nike

By Phantom On September 5th, 2018 at 12:51 pm

I’ve long disliked Nike, for multiple reasons. The slave labor thing, the sneakers as an overpriced fashion article, all of that.

I’m no fan of Colin Kaepernick, either. You know who he is. The former San Francisco 49er quarterback who used to conduct protests on the job, on his employer’s time, and who thought that there shouldn’t be any consequences for it.

The right to protest is fundamental. Police brutality does happen, and I support the right of Kaepernick or anyone else to protest it. But again, there is no -right- to protest on the field of play, in uniform, in the employer’s house, in front of a large audience who paid a lot of money to see a sporting event. It would be an exceptionally strange world if such rights were seen to exist.

The trendy slave labor sneaker company has just signed Kaepernick to a lucrative new celebrity endorsement contract. This is interesting. Kaepernick is an incredibly polarizing figure. Some see him as a martyr to black rights or speech rights, other see him as a race baiter who protests ( white, nach ) police brutality, but who doesn’t speak quite so loudly on the violence that kills so many more young black people than cops do – violence by black gangs, etc

In my opinion, this endorsement could and should hurt Nike big time. They’re now forever tied to a cop hater, one who wears ( white ) pig faced cop socks. They’ll sell more sneakers to urban youth and to the trendies in NYC and Cali, but they’ll be radioactive beyond those demographics. Shame on them.
