A Black MP and history

Dawn Butler is upset that there were no black women MPs 400 years ago

What can you say? Just what can you say when you read that the overpaid black MP, Dawn Butler is calling for a dedicated complaints department with the power to suspend fellow Members of Parliament and send them on "awareness training courses" for upsetting her.

The Spanish Inquisition was nothing compared to these courses for those who do not pay due respect to the Gods of Political Correctness and multiculturalism and she wants blood for being black.

Supported by another "professional black" MP, Diane Abbot she is is upset over a couple of things.

By all accounts a Labour MP once asked her whether they celebrated Christmas in Jamaica. Well do they? I don't know but I guess it was reasonable question. She had just received a free flight upgrade from Air Jamaica around about that time and given that her parents are Jamaican immigrants one would think she would know the answer. Obviously not.

But given that she made the following statement:
'Over the past 400-plus years, the only black people - and black women in particular - in Parliament have been there to cook and clean. For some politicians, it's still a shock to come face to face with a black women with any real power. Racism and sexism is Parliament's dirty little secret.'
she is obviously thicker then we first thought. Perhaps she is not even qualified to work in the kitchens of Parliament.

Four hundred years ago, Queen Elizabeth the 1sts death was still fresh in the memory of the British People, James the 1st had not long been on the throne and Guy Fawkes had just been hung drawn and quartered.

The English Civil war and the reformation of Parliament were nothing but a dream and the telescope had just been invented, so I doubt if there were any white Polish Cleaners in Parliament let alone blacks.

Being a well balanced person, with a chip on both shoulders, she goes on the attack:
It has not helped that the Labour party powers-that-be have always seen me as "uppity" but I have dealt with the racism and misogyny by reaching out to other black women.
No Dawn. Not uppity. Stupid and ignorant of the history of the Country that has taken your family in and elevated you way above your abilities.

A British National Party believes in the best man or woman for the job, not quotas and reverse discrimination.

Wasn't it Enoch Powell who said something about the Negro having the whip-hand?

I recoil in hilarity every time I see the statement "professional black": isn't that a contradiction in terms?

Well folks, why not give this ungrateful parasite a piece of your mind?

Hmm, just a thought: there are a lot of people on this blog who are situated in the States, Aus, NZ, Canada, etc.

Why not send some weighty items to Dawn Butler? It will cost her even more money to receive huge, weighty posts from outside of the U.K.

Recycle your unwanted phone books and catalogues at Dawn's FREEPOST ADDRESS!!!!!!!!!

Excellent post Green Arrow. But why oh why do people spoil it by bringing up their own emotional primate prejudice and racism?
I am a melting pot sort of guy. No one is of pure blood. Only Inbreds.
If we are to defeat Dawn's racial sectarianism, so easily provoked in the highly charged Politically Correct language against 'outsiders' - those who cannot possibly know what it is like to be a human being - by building walls between people of differing ethic roots, she will bring forth a Blitzkrieg of those who will show her what 'White' really means.
I do not want this bloodbath to happen.

UK Company Arriva's Swedish branch sacks bus driver for offending veiled Muslim 'person'

http://www.thelocal.se/11070/20080412/

Muslim woman receives damages for headscarf slight

A 20-year-old Malmö woman has been awarded damages after she was asked to leave a bus for wearing a veil.

The woman has received 25,000 kronor ($4,203) from public bus service operator Arriva after an agreement was reached with the Ombudsman against ethnic discrimination (DO), according to local newspaper Sydsvenskan.

The woman was instructed to leave the bus in the southern Swedish city when she refused to remove the niqab veil that she was wearing as part of her sartorial hijab headdress. The niqab covers the entire face except for eyes.

The bus driver had asked the woman to remove her niqab so that he could identify her, however the woman was using a buss pass that did not require identification.

"The bus driver has not acted according to Arriva's values. There is no doubt where the fault lies and this is most regrettable. We are happy to pay out the money to make up for it," said Jan Wildau at Arriva.

As a result of the incident the bus driver, who was employed on an hourly basis, no longer works for Arriva.

Don't bus drivers belong to a union in Sweden?

BOYCOTT ARRIVA!

FOUR men have been charged with child abduction after a 'distressed' young girl was allegedly found in their car in the early hours.

The men - all from the Blackburn area - were arrested as part of a special operation to protect young people.

Police said a vehicle was stopped by officers conducting a random vehicle check in Saunders Road.

Officers said the 'distressed' 15-year-old-girl was found in the back of the car at 2.40am on Thursday.

Taheer Ashiq, 26, of Audley Range; Saeed Hussain, 18, of Apple Close; Omar Sidat, 21, of Romney Walk; and Sarfaz Khaliq, 22, of Whalley New Road, have since appeared before Blackburn Magistrates' Court.

Point that black woman towards the airport let her get involved in the politics of Africa not ours it's bad enough now that politicians ignore the needs of whites putting them at the back of the queue without more ethnics in our parliament.
Diane Abbott big waste of space if she's anything to go by we need less black female yes women in parliament.

PJC JOURNAL..
Lisbon Treaty allows for Death Penalty across EU
by IanPP on Sun 13 Apr 2008 18:16 BST | Permanent Link | Cosmos
A quote from Helga Zepp-LaRouche in Executive Intelligence Review, 7 April 2008

Professor Schachtschneider pointed out that it [the European Union reform treaty, a.k.a. the Lisbon Treaty] also reintroduces the death penalty in Europe, which I think is very important, in light of the fact that, especially Italy was trying to abandon the death penalty through the United Nations, forever.


And this is not in the treaty, but in a footnote, because with the European Union reform treaty, we accept also the European Union Charter, which says that there is no death penalty, and then it also has a footnote, which says, “except in the case of war, riots, upheaval” – then the death penalty is possible.


Schachtschneider points to the fact that this is an outrage, because they put it in a footnote of a footnote, and you have to read it, really like a super-expert to find out!


Hidden in plain view, the usual tactics of Europhile lies and liars.


Demand your MP gives you an explanation BEFORE they are allowed to ratify the Lisbon Treaty.

Demand your MP votes against the Lisbon Treaty and this disgusting footnote.


As Wonko says:

The EU not-a-Constitution reintroduces the death penalty and not only in times of war, but for riots or upheaval. That gives governments a pretty free hand to use the death penalty - strikes, protests, vote of no confidence in the ruling party.


Now do you understand why they also want detention without charge. The plethora of anti-terror laws are not aimed at real terrorists, they are aimed at you. Aimed at you when you want to get rid of this disgusting government.


Is this what is meant when we hear our politicians speak of 'Progressive politics' or 'Post Democratic Europe'.

First they will come for the political dissidents.....

Using manufactured terrorism where there was none before, using manufactured scientific global problems, using manufactured national government services failures.
This is why Europe is not up for political discussion, no debates, no dialogue, why reporting on Europe is it virtually banned from the press, why the EU and government ministers do their work in secret.


Reform and change that is undertaken without the explicit consent of the people, can only be maintained through force and repression.


The real politics is now between the Authoritarian and the Libertarian.

Off Topic.

In the USA, the late Charlton Heston, past president of the National Rifle Association, speaks on the right to keep and bear arms and how it is connected with Winning the Cultural War.

Charlton Heston, speaking on 'Winning the Cultural War,' Tuesday, February 16, 1999, 7:30 pm, Ames Courtroom, Austin Hall. Sponsored by the Harvard Law School Forum.
Full text, Audio, Q&A

partal synopsis.

... Dedicating the memorial at Gettysburg, Abraham Lincoln said of America, "We are now engaged in a great Civil War, testing whether this nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure." Those words are true again. . . I believe that we are again engaged in a great civil war, a cultural war that’s about to hijack your birthright to think and say what lives in your heart.

... About a year ago I became president of the National Rifle Association, which protects the right to keep and bear arms. ... I serve as a moving target for the media ... As I have stood in the crosshairs of those who target Second Amendment freedoms, I’ve realized that firearms are not the only issue.

No, it’s much, much bigger than that.

I’ve come to understand that a cultural war is raging across our land, in which, with Orwellian fervor, certain acceptable thoughts and speech are mandated.

For example, I marched for civil rights with Dr. King in 1963 - long before Hollywood found it fashionable. But when I told an audience last year that white pride is just as valid as black pride or red pride or anyone else’s pride, they called me a racist.

I’ve worked with brilliantly talented homosexuals all my life. But when I told an audience that gay rights should extend no further than your rights or my rights, I was called a homophobe.

I served in World War II against the Axis powers. But during a speech, when I drew an analogy between singling out innocent Jews and singling out innocent gun owners, I was called an anti-Semite.

... I am not afraid. If Americans believed in political correctness, we’d still be King George’s boys - subjects bound to the British crown.


... For me, hyphenated identities are awkward . . . particularly "Native-American. " I’m a Native American, for God’s sake. I also happen to be a blood-initiated brother of the Miniconjou Sioux.

. . . David Howard, head of the Washington D.C. Office of Public Advocate, used the word "niggardly" while talking to colleagues about budgetary matters. Of course, "niggardly" means stingy or scanty. But within days Howard was forced to publicly apologize and resign.

As columnist Tony Snow wrote: "David Howard got fired because some people in public employ were morons who (a) didn’t know the meaning of niggardly,’ (b) didn’t know how to use a dictionary to discover the meaning, and (c) actually demanded that he apo logize for their ignorance. "

What does all this mean? It means that telling us what to think has evolved into telling us what

to say, so telling us what to do can’t be far behind.

Before you claim to be a champion of free thought, tell me: Why did political correctness originate on America’s campuses? And why do you continue to tolerate it?

Why do you, who’re supposed to debate ideas, surrender to their suppression?

Let’s be honest. Who here thinks your professors can say what they really believe?

That scares me to death. It should scare you too, that the superstition of political correctness rules the halls of reason.

You are the best and the brightest. ... But I submit that you, and your counterparts across the land, are the most socially conformed and politically silenced generation since Concord Bridge. And as long as you validate that ... and abide it ... you are - by your grandfathers’ standards - cowards.

... Who will guard the raw material of unfettered ideas, if not you? Democracy is dialogue!

Who will defend the core value of academia, if you supposed soldiers of free thought and expression lay down your arms and plead, "Don’t shoot me."

If you talk about race, it does not make you a racist.

If you see distinctions between the genders, it does not make you sexist.

If you think critically about a denomination, it does not make you anti-religion.

If you accept but don’t celebrate homosexuality, it does not make you a homophobe.

Don’t let America’s universities continue to serve as incubators for this rampant epidemic of new McCarthyism.

But what can you do? ...You simply ... disobey.

Peaceably, yes. Respectfully, of course. Nonviolently, absolutely.

... I am asking you to disavow cultural correctness with massive disobedience of rogue authority, social directives and onerous laws that weaken personal freedom.

But be careful ... it hurts. Disobedience demands that you put yourself at risk. Dr. King stood on lots of balconies.

You must be willing to be humiliated ... to endure the modern-day equivalent of the police dogs at Montgomery and the water cannons at Selma.

You must be willing to experience discomfort. I’m not complaining, but my own decades of social activism have left their mark on me.

... A few years back I heard about a rapper named Ice-T who was selling a CD called "Cop Killer" celebrating ambushing and murdering police officers.

... When your university is pressured to lower standards until 80% of the students graduate with honors . . . choke the halls of the board of regents.

When an 8-year-old boy pecks a girl’s cheek on the playground and gets hauled into court for sexual harassment . . . march on that school and block its doorways. When someone you elected is seduced by political power and betrays you . . . petition them, oust them, banish them. When Time magazine’s cover portrays millennium nuts as deranged, crazy Christians holding a cross as it did last month . . . boycott their magazine and the products it advertises.

So that this nation may long endure, I urge you to follow in the hallowed footsteps of the great disobediences of history that freed exiles, founded religions, defeated tyrants, and yes, in the hands of an aroused rabble in arms and a few great men, by God’s grace, built this country. ...

President EU Parliament: Media Should Realize Consequences of What they Publish about Islam
From the desk of The Brussels Journal on Mon, 2008-04-14 15:19
A quote from Hans-Gert Pöttering, the President of the European Parliament, in The Peninsula (Qatar), 14 april 2008

I will not accept this [equating Islam with terrorism] and we in the European Parliament do not accept that Islam and terrorism are identified as the same thing. We don’t believe in this idea and we reject this idea. […] I express my opposition to this film [Geert Wilders’ Fitna] and the same thing with the Danish cartoons.

We in Europe are committed to the freedom of the press, on the one hand, but on the other the media should develop a sort of self responsibility. They should always know the consequences of what they publish about other cultures.

CONSEQUENCES... PRAY TELL A LINE UP IN FRONT OF A FIRING SQUAD?

Off topic GA, but I think all BNP activists should read this, then copy it as emails to their own local electoral registration offices (with suitable alterations where appropriate), then post it as an open letter on their own local BNP websites.

It is important to send that email now. The information to be gained from the fourth, potentially most important question, depends on advance notice being given of the first three. It might - might - help us see how deep the electoral fraud rabbit hole goes. So bnp activists nationwide - send that email, then after May 1st, send those FoI requests. After May 1st I'll post the fourth question on the Wigan BNP weblog.

http://wiganbnp.blogspot.com/2008/04/post-may-1st-postal-voting.html

GA - can you post this lot on the forum for me? I haven't yet worked out how to use the forum to best advantage, and don't have the time right now. And publicity for this would be welcome. BNP main website? Could you do that?

Facts on a plate: our population is at least 77 million
Independent on Sunday, The, Oct 28, 2007 by city eye
E-mail Print Link It is the statistic that dare not speak its name, though eventually it must. It has huge ramifications for the civil and political life of this country, the health of the equity markets and, most immediately, the residential property market. So don't forget you read it here first: the population of the UK is presently somewhere between 77 and 80 million.

The 2001 census, already hopelessly out of date and easy to avoid for those who find filling in forms a trifle inelegant, numbered us at a little under 59 million. But as statistics go, that one's most definitely a damned lie.

More » My sources for the above statement are good, but scared of admitting the truth for fear of incurring the wrath of Whitehall. It's like the best way of monitoring illegal drug consumption: forget the pious statements from ministers - the foolproof method is to sample our water and the effluent in it. That's easily the best way of monitoring what the nation has been consuming.

Consumption - that's the thing. Based on what we eat, one big supermarket chain reckons there are 80 million people living in the UK. The demand for food is a reliable indicator; as Sir Richard Branson says, you can have all the money in the world but you can only eat onelunch and one dinner.

The supermarket in question was privately lobbying the Competition Commission to let it grow its market share. The argu- ment, reasonably enough, was that the market was far bigger than the regulator realised, so expanding the network was fair.

I have a second, respectable, source. A major, non-commercial agricultural institution reckons there are 77 million of us in the UK. Again, its reckoning is based on what we eat.

That faint background noise you're hearing as you read this is the sound of everyone slithering off the record. Why? In political terms, standing behind these figures would be to toss a hand grenade into a vat of gasoline. People would be hounded out of a job for scaremongering.

The Office for National Statistics' figures, published last week, predict a population of 75 million by 2051. It's an honest estimate but horribly wide of the mark because number counting doesn't work effectively. If you want to know how many there are of us, ask a food firm.

If the true numbers were revealed, the Little Englanders and xenophobes would come out in force about the evils of immigration. But that's what made America great in the 19th century, and it's a driving force of our economy right now. It's also anti- inflationary.

David Buik, a money manager with broker BGC Partners, was talking of "one million Eastern Europeans unaccounted for in London" on television last week. I suspect he's right if somewhat conservative in his estimate. How many do you see working in the construction industry and waiting at tables?

And when I say "anti-inflationary", I mean they are getting rotten wages. Dignified by the term "cheap labour", the hidden hordes will do well for the services sector, among others. People are assets - to maintain and to be maintained - so we are wealthier as a nation.

All of which is reflected in strong economic demand and markets see-sawing between optimism over what we all see on the streets (that 77 million figure feels right to me) and the possibility of something nasty if the Bank of England credit-crunch prognosis is correct (to echo last week, I think next spring will be unpleasant).

As for housing, property magnates and chief executives of housing associations alike say the expanding population means serious demand for the foreseeable future, credit crunch or no. Next week, I'll look at the detail of this argument.

The BBC now admitting to some food riots but they only mention two instead of the many which are occurring.
The Danes are watching and posting what they themselves are uncovering.
They provided many links and concluded with comments below.

Comment: The predictions of "Limits to Growth" were not valid. But its perspective is the tool of the illuminist, capitalist-communist New World Order (NWO) and its arm, the Club of Rome. So, what to do? Climate panicking and and starvation!!

For the success of the French Revolution ist to be repeated!

It is striking how the NWO organisations: the UN, the IMF, the FAO, the World Economic Forum, the World Bank, the Earth Policy Institute in Washington, the International Rice Research Institute, Bill Clinton, EU Commissioner for Human Aid Work, Louis Michel, the 1. Vice President of the EU Commission, Margot Wallström, are warning against famine - whereupon neither illuminist EU (explanatory part) nor illuminist USA even reduce their bio-fuel production!!
That really is very suspicious!


The NWO follows Hegelian dialectics: 1. Thesis:They invented a non-existing problem (man-made global warming), which now not even experts believe in any more. 2. Antithesis: On these false grounds they introduced the CO2-tax wanted by the illuminists , whereby they brought about an enormous increase in prices of transport and foods. Besides, they let their banks give irresponsible credits for a long period - just to suddenly withdraw their credits, so there is "bank crisis" and less money to buy with. 3. Synthesis: Starvation! The turmoils and chaos which always accompanied starvation actually take place. They are expected to reinforce the role of the illuminist UN - and to pave the road to the world state. The motto of the people behind the NWO is: "Ordo ab Chao" - Order out of Chaos - but first make chaos!
Moreover, famine could be a means for the Club of Rome which has declared as its goal to see a drastic reduction in the world population.

CLUB OF ROME FOR THE WORLDS SUPER RICH.

Food Riots..some killings in a few areas. Egypt being one.

Areas of riots due to famine because of high food prices:
There have been protests and riots in Guinea, Egypt, Morocco, Uzbekistan, Yemen, Burkina Faso, Mauritania, Niger, Uzbekistan, Senegal, Haiti, Bolivia and Indonesia, Argentina, Peru, Cameroon. Mozambique as well as Mexico and hoarding in South Korea. In the last two months Vietnam, Cambodia, Egypt, India, the Philippines and Thailand have stopped crop exports or raised prices to more than $1,200 a tonne to discourage exports .


The upshot of rising food prices is already being felt acutely in China. Robert Ziegler, of the Philippines-based International Rice Research Institute, gives a warning that 'civil unrest' is possible as people in China are eating more rice than is being produced, and that the cost of rice has doubled to $400 a tonne in five years. 'We are at a pre-crisis stage,' Ziegler says. 'The way things are coming together isn't pretty.

'Last year, Russia introduced retail price controls on some basic foods to prevent sky-high shopping costs denting the Putin administration's popularity, and last week the UN said food prices had risen 75 per cent since 2000 and that budgetary constraints could force it to ration food aid to developing countries. Over the past two years, Australia, one of the biggest grain producers, has been hit by severe drought.

India has stopped exporting rice except for one particular kind. The rest saved for her own people.

CULLING?

Hi, my first comment on this excellent site. Please check out the following by a wicked and highly influential pro-mass immigrationist. A man who would take our country from us and exile us:


"I reject that view. The wellbeing of the existing resident population is no more, and no less, relevant than the wellbeing of any potential immigrant to the UK, wherever in the world he or she may be. I recognise private property rights. My home is my castle and I can deny entry into it to anybody at any time. I don’t recognise national property rights. A country is not like a private home. A country is an open club."

Embracing Islam gives Ken new election hope
Comment: Ken's friends
An advocate ofsuicide bombing is among leaders of a group trying to mobilise Muslimvoters to back Ken Livingstone, the Standard reveals today.

Forthe past year, the group has been working on a strategy to win anestimated 200,000 Muslim votes in an effort to re-elect the Mayor.
Itincludes a campaign of vilification aimed at his Conservative rival,Boris Johnson. It is being waged by Muslims 4 Ken, led by 39-year-oldlecturer Anas Altikriti and Palestinian-born Azzam Tamimi, a supporterof Hamas, the militant group dedicated to the creation of an Islamicstate of Palestine.
While Mr Altikriti says he abhors violenceand favours dialogue to further the Muslim cause, Mr Tamimi has praisedsuicide bombers and said he would volunteer for a suicide mission inPalestine.
'For us Muslims martyrdom is not the end of things,but the beginning of the most wonderful of things,' he has said. 'If Ican go to Palestine and sacrifice myself I would do it. Why not?'
Muslims4 Ken moves into overdrive this week after months of lobbying for MrLivingstone among Muslim community leaders, in mosques and amongpolitical organisations.
The Islamic alliance backing the Mayoris based in east London and has already drawn on wide support from thearea's Bangladeshi community. Muslims 4 Ken grew from Mr Livingstone'slinks with activists and his generous sponsorship of Muslim causes. MrAltikriti was instrumental in the Mayor's patronage of Yusufal-Qaradawi, the Islamic cleric who was welcomed by Mr Livingstone toCity Hall. The Mayor's critics believe his praise of Mr al-Qaradawi waspart of a cynical plan to exploit the Muslim vote. Mr al-Qaradawi isbanned from Britain over fears his presence may not be conducive to'security and peace'.
The last two weeks of the electioncampaign will see a sustained attack on Mr Johnson based on claims thathe is anti-Islam. Volunteers have been supplied with quotes from hisjournalism over the past 15 years in which he appears to be critical ofIslam.
The quotes are deluging internet forums and form part ofmessages posted in texts and emails sent to exhort Muslims to vote forMr Livingstone.
