ANNE MARIE WATERS AND CONTROLLED OPPOSITION

Anne Maries Waters has appeared from nowhere to become the latest darling of those who do not wish to see the Islamification of Great Britain. I am always suspicious whenever the latest 'saviour' shows up - and I am right to be. Waters is currently founding her own party, 'For Britain', after losing the UKIP leadership contest, and spoke at the Traditional Britain Group meeting yesterday. She was very careful in her speech to concentrate on what she was against, but was very guarded about what she was for. There are very good reasons for that, for her vision for Britain is anything but traditional.

GENDER PRONOUNS AND PASSIVE-AGGRESSIVE HOBBYISM

The latest cult to emerge from the nihilistic Left is that of 'gender pronouns', which also seem to change every so often. Ten years ago, it was not even on the radar; then suddenly, every American university campus was flooded with things like 'ze' and 'xe' and 'per' and 'thon' and various others. Now, the latest pronoun fashion seems to be to use 'they' and 'them' for usually obese middle-class Leftists who wish to reject Natural Order and the way they were born, as though changing language somehow changes the reality of who they are.

FRAMING THE DISCOURSE: PIERS MORGAN VS MUNROE BERGDORF

Piers Morgan is someone I despise. He could be considered a Tony Blair of the media: someone who constantly fakes emotion and can argue passionately for one proposition and a few days later argue equally passionately for the counter-proposition. He is symptomatic of the British bourgeoisie: mealy-mouthed and insincere, his only morality being his bank balance and his deference to whatever elite is in power. Yet he is even more dishonest than this obvious observation suggests. Furthermore, Morgan is typical of the groupthink inherent in today's media, where all discourse is framed to manipulate public opinion.


Fake toughness, fake arguments

FROMAGE TO CATALONIA

The situation in Catalonia is a difficult one for me to reconcile: on the one hand, I believe the different peoples within Europe have the right to govern themselves and that political borders should be redrawn to reflect the historical boundaries of peoples (obviously, there would have to be a certain amount of compromise); on the other, the independence movement has been orchestrated by Communist groups in an area of Spain dominated by the Extreme Left. After all, this is the Mayor of Barcelona, Ada Colau, who delights in urinating on her own streets:

SPORT AND PRIVILEGE

The boxer Andre Ward has just retired undefeated, having spent time as super middleweight then light heavyweight champion of the world. He won the Super Six Series that saw him take on and beat the best super middleweights of his era, like Carl Froch, Mikkel Kessler and Chad Dawson. However, there have always been questions regarding his dirty tactics and it is indisputable that he beat several opponents through the continued use of illegal blows that went unchallenged by the referee, particularly in the defeats of Mikkel Kessler (head-butting), Sergey Kovalev (low blows) and Sakio Bika (head-butting, wrestling and elbowing). Why then was he allowed to get away with so much for so long and why are some sportsmen allowed to cheat and others not?

THE PIKEY QUESTION

In my article on the campsite as Pioneer Little Europe, I mentioned in some way emulating the lifestyle of Irish gypsies. These Pikeys also cropped up in Hilaire Belloc's article 'On Inns' in a rather romantic light and I do not wish the readers of this blog to think I have any time for these ne'er-do-wells. I do, however, believe there are lessons to be learned from their lifestyle, both for good and ill, and these are what I wish to explore here.

TWO MORE "NEW" BOWDEN SPEECHES UPLOADED

The Youtube user Gaelic Neoreactionary is spoiling us at the moment by uploading the Jonathan Bowden speeches only previously seen on DVD. The first of his two new uploads is Bowden's speech on the guru of Italian fascism, Gabriele D'Annunzio. Bowden explores the link between D'Annunzio's artistic and political careers, and how his romanticist and traditionalist literature that brought together many strands of thought and styles shaped his politics. Equally, his aristocratic background is important, particularly in relation to modernity, as D'Annunzio joined the Italian Air Force during the First World War, the pilot becoming the modernist knight of the air. Equally, this blend of modernism and traditionalist elitism would shape his fascist ideology.
