The Non-Newsfeed, October 27th 2009

The Baron is away and the mice are lying around eating bon bons and drinking his last bottle of wine.

Since all the news is bad why not look at some interesting websites instead?

For instance,

Natalie is posting on the Karadzic Trial.


Jerry Gordon has filed a report at the New English Reviewon the latest developments in the Rifqa Bary case. Abused children in foster care often end up being treated as the perpetrators. I had hoped this case would be different.


Heroyalwhyness sends a report from Islam in Europe: Netherlands: “In five years our women.. will all walk around with headscarves.”


Fausta sends along a report (humor ahead, watch for bumps):

“YOU MAY BE A TALIBAN IF…”

1. You refine heroin for a living, but you have a moral objection to liquor.
2. You own a $3,000 machine gun and $5,000 rocket launcher, but you can’t afford shoes.
3. You have more wives than teeth.
4. You wipe your butt with your bare hand, but consider bacon “unclean.”
5. You think vests come in two styles: bullet-proof and suicide.
6. You can’t think of anyone you haven’t declared Jihad against.
7. You consider television dangerous, but routinely carry explosives in your clothing.
8. You were amazed to discover that cell phones have uses other than setting off roadside bombs.
9. You have nothing against women and think every man should own at least four.
10. You’ve always had a crush on your neighbour’s goat.

She also has a post up today that I would’ve done had the rain not disrupted our connection -- though not so well:

Thomas Sowell writes on the dismantling of America


Fjordman sends some news of U.K. Labour’s ideas on social engineering. You know how well that works. Evidently they said, “let’s get us a whole bunch of immigrants, flood the country. We’ll rub the Right’s nose in diversity”. Another stupid idea from the Left.

Melanie Phillips is not pleased: “There could not have been a more grave abuse of the entire democratic process”.

I guess it’s too late to shoot these social engineers.


JD says that Chicago, the new Soviet Union, is paying a bounty to those who are willing to tell on their neighbors for cheating on their taxes. The tattle-tales get a percentage of the bounty. And probably a gift of cement overshoes thrown in for free.


From Diana West, some advice: “Stop Nation Building, Start Nation Saving”. She delineates the differences between Obama and his General.


A new blogger enters the infinity of the ‘sphere.


An old dog still hangs out in the cyberspace he so aptly named.


The Curmudgeon Emeritus ponders things temporal on Eternity Road.

Hey, last one out of the kitchen turn off the lights. You know the Baron is saving on electricity. Besides, the mice hate to drink in the dark.

The mass of legislation and the total restructuring of government departments and U.K. society, makes it doubtful, that mass immigration was a "rub the Right’s nose in diversity” policy whim dreamt up by Blair, Blunkett and Straw.

This story reads like a piece of disinformation.

Okay, 4Symbols, I'll bite: what do you believe isthe real story behind the mass immigration and resulting dissolution of Britain?

Everyone could see that the high numbers over a short period of time made assimilation impossible. Therefore it was the lack of assimilation or anti-native diversity that the Labor party was after as well as the votes to keep themselves in power.

Similarly, there were no net economic benefits if honest figures were used. CIVITAS has a nice booklet out on this "Do WE Need Mass Immigration?" by Anthony Browne. Not enough of these people do honest labor and disproportionately add to Welfare and/or crime rolls.

If the initiative were clearly identified as the charity work it is, (instead of the pretense of securing workers) then the large numbers are not tenable and would not have been accepted by the native population.

Incidentally, anyone who is actually charitable wouldn't bring one unassimilable immigrant to England at a huge outlay that would save or improve the lives of a hundred citizens if deployed in his native country instead. He'd spend the money abroad where it would go much farther. So Labour really wanted to create a socialist state of serfs, parasites and themselves on top as eternal control freak rulers.

Genius at plotting, it's amazing how stupid the Left is and how it keeps repeating the pattern all socialist communist states have followed: they kill the golden goose of productive middle class capitalist workers and eventually have nothing to give their thuggish parasitic clientele 1) government union "workers" who are overpaid and underworked in largely unproductive bureaucracies and 2)blatant Welfare parasites. Then the system collapses. Been there, done that, always the same result.

Wait a minute, that's the definition of insanity isn't it? Even the stupid learn if more slowly but socialists never learn. They keep adding 2 + 2 to get 5. They are incapable of understanding that to redistribute money (their only tactic), you have to have A SOURCE OF MONEY.

laine--

Spot on. I'd make one change, and that is socialism in South America where there was never a middle class to destroy.

The difference between the EU socialists and the Soviet style is that it's not bloody...the police just don't keep order anymore and let the underclass kill folks randomly. They kill one another more frequently than they do the wage earners but the chilling effect of not being permitted to protect yourself sets people up for further depradatons by the state.

Seriously, is the length of life decreasing in Britain? I would think the stress and lack of adequate access to care would take its toll.

Hi Dymphna

"Neather gave the impression that most immigrants are Eastern Europeans. But these form fewer than a quarter of all immigrants."

This extract from Melanie Phillps article is interesting, Neather attemps to deflect the debate from third world mass immigration to european immigration, a tactic that has in the past worked in making transitory european immigration e.g. Polish semi-skilled workers the target of the hostility surrounding immigration rather than the real issue of third world mass immigration, he is obviously still playing the politics of distraction.

In any case the swamping policy of the U.K. predates Blair, the intent as Melanie states "to flood the country with immigrants to change its very character and identity" is a policy to destroy the cultures of the nation states of Europe, self inflicted genocide, genocide as prevention. The nation state is an anathema for the political elite of both left and right the enemy of the state is the state.
