'1984' Revisited—Reprised for Obvious Reasons

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Sun, 2018-07-01 05:54

I've added 1984 to the books I'm currently reading or, as in this case, re-reading. I'm astonished anew at how prescient it was. (Also refreshing, after Dostoevsky and Hugo, to encounter a writer who just gets on with it.) I assume everyone here is acquainted with it, so every day will just add a direct quote without commentary. This one is apposite in light of today's demonstrations by mindless leftist thugs:

I can't imagine what she would say about the current cowardly craven corporate capitulation to Wokery.

Liberals Go After Tucker Carlson, Again

30th July 2020

Liberals have been viciously going after Tucker Carlson ever since his show on Fox News turned into a runaway success for the network over the last four years.

In November of 2018, after a left-wing journalist posted Carlson’s home address online, an ANTIFA mob congregated outside his house chanting, “Tucker Carlson, we will fight, we know where you sleep at night.” The group who called themselves “Smash Racism D.C.,” tweeted out photos of the Carlson property and its address. This is the same group who chased Senator Ted Cruz and his wife Heidi out of a restaurant during the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings. They told Cruz that he “was not safe.”

You Won't Crush Evil with Tabloid Tawdriness, Crusher!

It's disgusting that Crusher's opening salvo against the evil Wokery of Jacinda Ardern has consisted of ... more evil Wokery. So Labour had "dirt" on a National MP, involving a texted image to a young female. As best we can tell, no laws were broken, no rights were breached. Crusher fired the MP in a bid to look "decisive." Then she let Jacinda know she had something similar on one of her, Jacinda's, ministers. Again, no laws broken, no rights breached. Jacinda, rather than saying what she should have said: "Fuck off, it was a consensual relationship, and no one else's business!" fired the minister in her own bid to win in the "decisiveness" stakes. Worse, that minister abjectly apologised and condemned his own behaviour as, in the favoured terminology of Woke-Fascists, "inappropriate."

The best thing Judith Collins said during her first press conference as National Party leader came right at the end: "I think it might be time for a drink."

Here we had intimations at least that the prim, prissy, prudish neo-Puritanism, the Woke-Fascism unleashed on the nation by the Marxist Jacinda Ardern might have met its match.

[Edit: This is now two weeks old, but it still holds in my opinion. Judith will deserve to win this year’s election only inasmuch as she will hold to National’s founding principles. Boring, tawdry sexual misconduct issues definitely do not count as that.]

16th July 2020

In just one interview yesterday evening, a thrilled Judith Collins reminded New Zealanders that there still happens to be a few adults left in the room of politics.

Strong and confident in front of the press, while still being able to retain a sense of humour – “I think it might be time for a drink,” Judith, not Jacinda, is the woman who could breathe some fresh air back into this stale country.

"The emotion involved in art is not an emotion in the ordinary meaning of the term. It is experienced more as a 'sense' or a 'feel,' but it has two characteristics pertaining to emotions: it is automatically immediate and it has an intense, profoundly personal (yet undefined) value-meaning to the individual experiencing it.

The International Union for Muslim Scholars (IUMS) has called on non-Muslim countries to ban Islamophobia, following the killing of dozens of people on a deadly attack on two mosques in New Zealand.

“IUMS calls on non-Muslim countries to ban the spread of hatred against Islam and Muslims,” IUMS President Ahmed al-Raisouni said in a statement at the conclusion of a 2-day session held in Istanbul on Friday.

I have a better idea. Why don't all countries require all people—citizens, non-citizen residents or visitors—within their jurisdiction, as a prerequisite for being within their jurisdiction, to sign the following pledge:

"Just as I reserve the right to hold and express my opinions on any matter whatsoever, I promise to respect the right of all others to do the same. I renounce unreservedly the use of coercion and violence in the promotion of my opinions."

Saving Free Speech from Profa

It was reassuring to read on WhaleOil about a new organisation called Advance Australia which humans are joining "to make sure their beloved country doesn’t succumb to rampant radicalism or political correctness" of the kind viciously promoted by the Soros-funded group GetUp. We could do with something like Advance Australia in New Zealand, where sub-humans—biological humans who nonetheless renounce reason and repair to force—are attempting to end free speech at every turn. They are our local Antifa, except that Antifa should be called (and will be by me henceforth) "Profa" because they are pro-fascist. In their behaviour, appearance and mindless malice they are the modern-day version of Mussolini's Blackshirts. In their beliefs they are Islamo-Marxists, which makes them fascists also.

Devoy vs Voltaire—Reprised with PS, Aug 14, 2017

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Wed, 2017-02-08 22:50

[Reprised with Post-Script, Aug 14, 2017]

Apocryphally, in 1770, the French writer and provocateur François-Marie Arouet (Voltaire) wrote to a French priest, “Monsieur l'abbé, I detest what you write, but I would give my life to make it possible for you to continue to write." Actually, he said no such thing. Biographer Evelyn Beatrice Hall, trying to capture the libertarian essence of his attitude to the burning of a book whose content he disapproved of, came up with: “I disapprove of what you say but will defend to the death your right to say it.” The saying, formulated that way, has been attributed to Voltaire ever since.

A cultivated woman. Now there’s an expression from a by-gone era. When I think of what it means to cultivate oneself during this rather short lifespan of three-score years and ten – if we’re lucky, it strikes me what a dull, undeveloped spectacle most women allow themselves to remain during our time.

My grandmother used to have a term for ugly speech and ill-bred manners in a female – a “guttersnipe.” A guttersnipe was the very opposite of a cultivated woman. But it’s not just the lack of vocal beauty or manners where my criticism about my own sex originates, it's the abject neglect of developing discerning taste and a strong intellect.

Protesting too much – now there’s a hot topic.

Shakespeare exposed this phoney practise through the character of Hamlet’s mother, Queen Gertrude, when she comments wryly on a play inside of a play.

Vehemently insisting on insincere overacting shows that the opposite of what one is protesting is probably the truth.

Take George Floyd’s death for example.

This was a moment where everyone who saw that awful snuff film were unified in their disgust and feelings of wanting to see justice be served to the psycho-killer-cop, Chauvin.

But then what happens?

Six years ago, on November 24, 2013, I suffered a near-fatal stroke, a sub-arachnoid haemorrhage, but was saved by the quick thinking of my wife, Rachel – who didn't panic, just got me into hospital as fast as possible – and by some brilliant modern surgery (I believe developed in the USA) carried out by Professor Stefan Zigmunt at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, England, assisted by neuroradiologist Dr Swarupsinh Chavda. The operation involved inserting a tiny camera and miniscule stents through my veins to seal the ruptured arteries. Professor Zigmunt did the insertion, Dr Chavda guided him to the ruptures.


Church of Wokengland

The Church of England goes even more woefully Woke. It never cared much about actual Christian doctrine. One of the things Karl Marx got right was this: "The Anglican Church would more readily forgive an attack on 38 of its 39 Articles than on one 39th of its income."

The Anglican church should reconsider the way statues and other representations of Jesus portray him as white in the light of the Black Lives Matter protests, the archbishop of Canterbury has said.

Justin Welby also said that the church must look very carefully to see if they should all be there.

In an interview on Friday, the head of the Church of England said the west in general needed to question the prevailing mindset that depicted Christ as a white man in traditional Christian imagery.

Systems and sructures: the Social Warrior Litmus test

The BLM protest last Sunday in Wellington had a highly intelligent and formidable speaker. She laid into the system and the structures of power. When you hear those words one knows that the dead hand of a wearisome ideology of critical theory, neo-Marxism. The dialectical theory of Hegel, and the unfortunate inheritance from Plato, lives on in the simplistic mechanical calculus which reduces life to the trite oppressor/oppressed calculus which concludes with its predicted premise.


Cancel Woke-Fascism: Watch 'Gone with the Wind' Today!

The attempt by sub-human Taleban Woke-Fascists to rewrite history and destroy Western Civilisation and its distinctive ramparts, reason and freedom, has already backfired. Their latest target: the gorgeous classic Gone with the Wind. I believe these particular Woke-Taleban fascists, HBO, will put the movie back up eventually, but with an insufferably sanctimonious, prissy sermon about "racism," of which they, as it happens, are the worst real practitioners in this equation. Reassuringly, actual humans have got in first:

The Tragic Worldview Versus the Therapeutic

When it comes to democracy, both ancient and modern, there are forces which compete at its heart serving as a moral tension which give the whole system a certain vigour, until it unravels either through mob-tyranny or outright dictatorship.

In ancient Athens, arguments were had over equality versus freedom, an old left/right divide between those who believed that people were not equal and then those who believed that they could be made equal if human nature could just be overridden a little – or a lot.

The progressive view still insists today that equality is more important than freedom, therefore welcomes, or at least tolerates, state intrusion into the lives and livelihoods of citizens to see wealth redistributed “more equally.”

Comrades, the time has come to deal with the insidious evil in our society.

I am of course referring to "institutionalized sexism"

There is a 'minority' in America who comprise 49.6% of the population, yet comprise 94% of those shot by police.

The only possible explanation for this is sexism; institutionalized sexism. A pernicious evil which has gone on for too long.

The way to solve this once and for all is not to stop committing crimes, oh no, it is to burn down the bakery and drycleaners on Main Street.

That'll show those sexists we are on to them - so there! (you racist!)

Sebastian Gorka delivers a magnificent denunciation of the evil, Deep State treasonist of whom we all had such high hopes initially but who has now joined the Woke-Fascists. The passage on Lap-Dog's position on moving the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem is especially compelling:

In the Leighton Smith Podcast this week, released on Wednesday June 3rd, Leighton interviewed George Friedman of Geopolitical Futures and the subject of President Trump came up.

Friedman, who is a conservative, has often supported the president but this time he offered some fairly vague criticisms of him along the lines of: “He just has to make everything about him.” “I want him to lead.” “He’s supposed to be everybody’s president.” “He condemned the demonstrators but hasn’t said a word about…” [sentence incomplete]. “This requires sensitivity, Trump has many virtues, understanding the complexity of this is not one of them.”

Evil Woke-Fascist Anderson Cooper got all menstrual over Orange the Magnificent's Churchillian walk over to the Church opposite the White House, where he held up a Bible:

“Oh my God. Wow. We are in trouble. He was hiding in a bunker and embarrassed that people know that. So what does he have to do? He has to stick police on peaceful protesters so he can make a big show of being the little big man walking to a closed down church.”

All false.

Evidently Anderson took to the streets to release her menses:

Oh wait. That's Obleftivist Yawon Bwook, CNN shill, with a bwown wig. My mistake. Evil

25 years ago I loved CNN. It was what it purported to be, a straight-up-and-down news organisation. Now it is indeed Fake News, in the pockets of Sorosian Islamo-Marxists, evil to its rotten core.

Oh, and if there's anyone this post doesn't offend, I apologise!

From Prime Minister to Tyrant

Jacinda Ardern has crossed the line from New Zealand’s Prime Minister to its tyrant.

We have watched her toe this line for several years as she promised to crack down on free speech laws – and she did indeed begin to politicise the police force by having them regularly visit the homes of many conservative bloggers and social media users to ask questions about their posts.
