    Today’s UK Pravda Left-Bigot ‘Expert!’ 

    The whole point, surely, of having an academic ‘expert’ on a news programme is to provide objective analysis.

    BBC World News, as we are regretfully aware…

    …has a very different take on the role, ever intent on bringing partisan fanatics into our sitting rooms in academic guise.

    Thus today  (about 8am Jakarta time) we had Professor Jonah Levy, almost predictably of California’s notorious Berkeley University…


    Profile picture for user Jonah Levy
    The Smile on the Face of the Leftist


    ( not to be confused with another Levy…..Fascist’ Smear By BBC’s Latest “Guest!’….they had on recently! )

    ….who was not challenged even once as he spewed his brazenly biased rhetoric

    Whatever factual comments he offered were laced with lines like –



    Marine Le Pen’s party getting a big (over 41%) vote was a ‘disturbing development from a democratic standpoint..’

    So if people exercise their democratic right to vote in ways Levy dislikes…



    ….it’s ‘disturbing from a democratic point of view?’

    What he means is from a globalist, elitist, left/liberal, Europhiliac point of view.

    And he’s entitled to his point of view.

    But not to use the UK tax-funded broadcaster as a platform, when he’s purporting to be a guest providing facts, not taking sides.

    Another example of a Levy ‘disturbing development from a democratic standpoint’ was that the old in-crowd establishment parties were so diminished!

    BUT…there were also ‘positive developments,’ to be ever so thankful for!

    France’s ‘very intelligent leader was back..




    …and, wow, the mainstream elites reinvented the agenda and held the populists at bay.

    An hour later Sonia Dridi, a French freelance journo, appeared, who stuck to facts, and admitted Marine was ‘attracting more and more young people.’

    So UK Pravda CAN get informative guests, but only after it makes sure it airs left prejudice too.

    Western ‘Rights Rot’ Surfaces In Jakarta! … 

    Sad to read that ‘rights rot’ has surfaced here in Jakarta, with the activist women’s NGO, Komnas Perempuan, coming out against the wise and just death sentence…

    Bravo, Indonesia! DEATH To Predators! .

    Serial child rapist Herry Wirawan, center, at Bandung District Court, West Java, Indonesia


    ..facing Herry Wirawan, ‘teacher,’ found guilty of raping 13 female students, some of whom the filthy pig impregnated.

    Komnas Perempuan opposes the death penalty because it is against international human rights norms, which are the most basic right to life,” Komnas Perempuan Commissioner Rainy Hutabarat told reporters, Tuesday (5/4/2022).




    Rainy Hutabarat

    One of the nice things about living in Jakarta is that, on issues of this kind, most Indonesians take a sensible view.

    Instead of airy-fairy rhetoric, distractions about abstractions, like ‘international human rights norms,’ they look at the facts of the case.

    Did the beast do it?


    Is there any sense in wasting money feeding and housing him for years?


    If your daughter were one of his victims, and you were given the opportunity, would you put him down?

    Yes, yes, yes!

    Apart from Komnas Petempuan and no doubt some of the cosmopolitan Western-schooled leftists at the Jakarta Post…

    …everybody will welcome the guilty brute’s execution.

    But as I write this, I remember living in the UK, and how most normal Brits, outside the degenerate chattering classes, wanted to see the death penalty used against the cowardly IRA terrorists…



    ….and their Sinn Fein comrades.

    Similarly, I feel certain most Brits would have rejoiced had the scum convicted…


    Primitive Pigs Plague A Once-Civilised Land -Repeatedly! 

    …for ‘grooming gang’ crimes been taken out and shot in the back of the head, preferably after castration.

    What’s different between Indonesia and Britannia?

    In the latter, there’s a degenerate minority which has gotten control….


    ….a political and media ‘elite’ that gets away repeatedly with flouting the will of the people.

    Canada’s Pinko Singh Won’t Answer Hard Questions! 

    We congratulated Rebel News on their Canadian court victory….

    Turdo’s Jackboot Comes Unstuck! 

    …which screwed up the left in-crowd’s attempt to shield themselves from critical media coverage.



    Lord knows there aren’t many media in Canada that are non-left.

    Yet although Turdo was among the court losers, the most bitter and bigoted response from rhe political elite must be that of the socialist NDP leader….


    Jagmeet Singh at the 2nd National Bike Summit in Ottawa in 2018

    …the repulsive Jagmeet Singh, whose  intolerance of dissent we discussed a year or more ago.

    Turdo’s ‘Brown-Face?’ Howzabout Singh’s Brown-Shirt?

    The drip’s a darling of the hack-pack, most of whom do all they can not to remind voters of the man’s distinctly unsavoury record….

    Jagmeet Singh wants to be Prime Minister: Of Canada or Khalistan?

    ..though to be fair, the leftist Globe and Mail did publish a telling piece on his “strange loyalties! ‘

    He described India as “our country where we live” – a startling use of language for a born-and-bred Canadian politician.

    Pity more Canadians fail to see that such dubious allegiance is part and parcel of multiculturalism!

    But even with so many journo-jerks rooting for him, the thought of honest reporters asking questions after the recent ruling was way too much for Singh. .

    The ugly face of his extremism leered out from under that turban.

    At the same event, the New Democratic leader, Jagmeet Singh, when asked a question by Rebel, said he does not take questions from the organization


    The stuck-up creep is undoubtedly arrogant, but his arrogance is fuelled by hatred of media that might ask questions he fears to have to answer.

    Moga: NIA team to handle Khalistan flag case probe


    Questions about Khalistan, perhaps?

    To the surprise of many diplomats in South Block — the seat of India”s foreign office in New Delhi — Singh, born to immigrant Indian parents, organised a conference of pro-Khalistan activists in Ontario in 2013, aimed at maligning the image of India abroad.

    Two years later in 2015, as legislature member of NDP, Singh appeared at a pro-Khalistan rally in San-Francisco. He blatantly showered praises for dreaded terror leader Jarnail Singh Bhindrawale, killed in a gunfight in Operation Blue Star

    Funeral Discrimination – In Ulster, Terror Scum – In USA? Democrats! 

    Last week we took a look at the disgusting ‘funeral’ discrimination shown by Belfast City Counci, favouring fans of the late and very unlamented brutal terrorist Bobby Storey over normal decent bereaved families.

    Good Luck To Family Fighting Roselawn Discrimination! 

    Now we read of a somewhat comparable double standard in Washington DC, where the far-left, pro-BLM Democrat…



    …Mayor Muriel Bowser has decreed that members of the political elite there are not subject to the same virus diktats that apply to the mere mortals whose taxes pay the elite’s bloated salaries.

    This time public anger is focused on the mass trek of leechy legislators to hear Obama turn John Lewis’s funeral into an anti-Trump rally.

    Dr. Alveda King rips Obama for politicizing John Lewis’ funeral: Leftists will ‘grab at any opportunity’


    Two of a kind – Obama with Muriel Bowser


    Despite having traveled to Georgia, which Bowser’s office has classified as a “high-risk area,” people in power do not have to self-quarantine upon reentry into the nation’s capital…


    …Bowser Press Secretary Susana Castillo – lawmakers would be exempt from the mayor’s order, which applies to everyone else, because the mayor classified Lewis’ funeral as “government activity….”

    By NO stretch of the imagination is a funeral, no matter whose, a government activity!’

    And the leftist ruling class in DC added injurious injustice to that insult to people’s intelligence by admitting…

    …that people who attend funerals in “high-risk areas” for people who were not government officials would be forced to self-quarantine for 14 days.

    BBC Elitism Sucks! 

    I was going to ignore it but the BBC keeps plugging away and bugging my day, day after day, some geezer with an ever-so-toffee-nosed voice, promoting their ‘Arts and Culture’ shows..

    ‘Not many people have heard of her…she’s only one of America’s most important …’ 


    If ‘not many people have heard of her,’ who decided she’s that damned ‘important?’

    It’s not like she’s some unsung hero who has found a virus cure in an obscure lab…

    China is Lying, Coronavirus started in Wuhan


    …or an unknown engineer in the space programme, whose break-through backroom work can have us all taking our annual holidays on Mars next year!

    Art is NOT rocket science, but merely a matter of opinion.

    Regrettably, the opinions of deadbeat ‘intellectuals’ is all too frequently elevated above the opinions of the rest of us.

    The consequences of this elitism can be idiotic, like using public funds to exhibit pickled animals in London…

    …but he should make that clear – not present his personal prejudice in her favour as fact.

    Walking Dead Extra? Treating Chicago Folks As Fools! 

    Tomorrow we who live in Jakarta enter the official State of Emergency.

    Just like many of you, all over the world.

    Hair-dressers are among the many places of business shutting down here.


    Cousin Itt


    If only I’d got my meagre locks trimmed last week!


    I do recommend this link to a story of supercilious arrogance…



    …a lesbian leftist mayor – Chicago’s Lori Lightfoot – who closes down barbers, then waltzes off to her own hair-dresser, and then is caught on camera, ignoring even minimal social distance measures.

    Shocking elitist arrogance!

    But I can readily understand her concern for her appearance!

    OMG – what a scary-looking woman!

    I have remarked in the past that not all lesbians are unpleasant to look at, like that gal in Jakarta I was chatting to…


    NOT the Chicago mayor, nor her hair-dresser!

    ….a very pretty gal at a party, for half an hour or more, then was suitably chagrined when she fessed up to be exactly that – a LESBIAN!

    I was, as always, polite in my discomfiture, explaining that my look of shock was due to her not smoking a pipe, nor wearing appropriate lesbian gear, viz. hob-nailed boots and a tweed suit.

    She countered that such attire in Jakarta’s tropical weather would be most uncomfortable – fair point!

    Indeed, in some cases, I have done my personal, noblest, most altruistic, best to persuade them back to normal non-aberrant behaviour!

    But I wouldn’t make such efforts with the Mayor of Chicago – take a look at Lightfoot!

    That photo you will see, if you use the link – the big photo, not the one of her standing non-safely, mere inches from her hair-dresser – could easily guarantee her a walk-on role…



    …as an extra in my fave zombie TV serial, The Walking Dead!

    Oh, and on another issue…

      That photo of the Chicago mayor is scarifying.
      No wonder she chose a lesbian path, not many men ever chased her at the junior prom!

    Underwhelmed By In-Crowd ‘Fears,’ Slovaks Think For Themselves!. 

    Exactly how the left-liberal media measure, or at least portray, actual or possible electoral success is becoming ever more of a challenge to figure out, especially when bigot pinkos, like those who run the Bloomberg site….



    …have been portraying Matteo Salvini’s increase in voter support from 19% to 32% as a ‘humiliation!’


    But let’s look a little to the north-east of Italy today, to where…



     …EUObs has presented us with another baffling paragraph, on how Slovakia, a country ‘overwhelmed by fears’ of a ‘far-right’ ‘historic victory’ in this month’s election.

    But how is Slovakia in any way likely to produce a ‘far-right’ ‘historic victory, if the country is ‘overwhelmed by fears’ of such an outcome!

    How is any such thing likely, or even possible, in any country…


    …like so much of the political-media elite in this era, the authors see themselves, their ‘we-know-best’ elite, as the only part of their country that matters!



    And the fact does appear to be that only THEY are ‘overwhelmed by fears!’

    The mere voters, underwhelmed by the anxieties of their ‘betters,’ and showing disturbing signs of thinking for themselves…


    …are seen as an annoying impediment to keeping the country moving in the direction the elite prefer.

    The election is on the 29th February.


    A month before its general election on 29 February, Slovakia seems overwhelmed by fears that a wide-felt frustration over corruption – revealed as part of an investigation into the shocking murder of an investigative journalist in 2018 – could lead to a historic victory for far-right extremists.

    Elitist Professor – Let Elites Choose Our Rulers! 

    Elites are largely self-defining.



    Most of us tend to regard them, whether political, cultural or academic, as contemptible cliques, know-alls who wallow in the arrogant delusion that they know best, much better than we deplorable commoners.

    But of course the uppity swine rarely confess openly to such presumptions.

    They just sweep measures through, as Cameron did, in his case in the name of ‘diversity’ – his infamous A List, B List fix, over-ruling even the rank and file of his own party in their right to choose candidates who might actually represent them.



    As if a party which chose Maggie T as leader was in any need of such a mechanism that gave women an unfair advantage!


    At last, however,  a woman who is part of America’s academic elite, a leftist professor, writing in the ultra-elitist, ultra-liberal Washington Post, has spilled the beans, outlining her deep desire to castrate democracy in her own country –  ‘to throw out the whole system.’


    • Mort 22:29 on February 21, 2020 Permalink | Reply

      This professor is just being a socialist saying what socialists have thought for at least a hundred years.
      It was Beatrice Webb, ‘early 20th-century eugenic thinker and one of the founders of the Fabian Society,’ who stated that ‘it was questionable whether ‘poor and uneducated’ people should be entrusted with the democratic right to ‘control the government of Great Britain’
      Incidentally, I found that quote on that British site that you like to quote from.
      spiked,com. Another interesting article.

    ‘Liberal?’ ‘Democrats?’ – Who Wants A Ban On UK Freedom-Fest? 

    Thanks again to the Europhiliac TNE site, for telling us that the acting LibDem leader, Ed Davey wants a BAN on the plan by Nigel Farage’s plan to hold a grand freedom party at the end of the month to celebrate the restoration of British independence.



    In the true liberal spirit of UK democratic traditions, Davey wants his fellow-Remainiac, the Labour Mayor of London…



    ….to ‘reject the plans because it would not help bring the country back together.  “I don’t think it’s very unifying… We want to unify the country to learn the lessons…”

    This twerp has clearly NOT learned the lesson he and his comrades should have…




    ….that seeking contemptuously to overturn the ballot-box decision by the British majority was NOT the action of anyone interested in ‘unifying’ the country.

    The jackboot jerk has the nerve to cite “VE Day when we defeated Nazi Germany… “




    ….as an example of when Brits might be entitled to “come out in our public spaces and celebrate together.”

    So it’s okay to demonstrate national joy at the defeat of the Third Reich…



    ….but not the Fourth Reich?

    Quite right,’ shrills Mr. Ed.

    Mister Ed.png

    The idea that a party in Parliament Square will be a way of bringing the country together is quite literally nonsense.” https://www.theneweuropean.co.uk/top-stories/ed-davey-on-january-31st-brexit-celebrations-1-6453576

    What is actually nonsense is this LibDem louse’s belief that his defeat should not be celebrated by those who defeated his disloyalty to Queen and Country!

    ‘Open Democracy?’ “Pseuds’ Corner,” More Like! 

    That ‘Open Democracy’ gang went paranoid a month ago, all uptight about the appealing prospect of a Le Pen presidency in 2020.

    That’s an outcome devoutly to be wished for, as Le Muppet Macron continues lip service only to controlling the migrant menace.

    But the odd O.D. crew are STILL banging on about Marine…



    ….with a weird analysis of her campaign style from some geezerette who begins her warble with this, a quote from another warbling geezer.

    Political scientist Benjamin Moffitt argues that populism is, above all, a performative repertoire which has capitalized on the intensive mediatization of social and political life.”



    That’s just high-falutin’ hogwash!

    Can’t the klutz express himself in plain English?

    However, he obviously realises that nobody could possibly divine a meaning from that initial stanza, so he has another go!

    .” It is a stylized performance which conveys a thin – but highly effective – ideology of antipathy to elites and claims to represent “the people.”



    Yes, Marine’s performance has style.

    It’s downright classy.

    But there’s nothing ‘thin’ about Marine’s SUBSTANTIAL disdain for elites.

    And if it’s a question of whose ‘claims to represent the people’ are more valid, then we need only cast our minds back to the announcement of Macron’s most famous fake-reform…


    Muppet Macron’s Mock-Consultation -“We’ll Only Talk About What WE Value!” 

    ….those ‘consultations’ in which the French people would be given the chance to direct the destiny of their beloved France…



    ..as long as they didn’t dare challenge the ideology of the ruling elite!

    If I were you, I wouldn’t waste time wading through the Open Democracy babble, though feel free if you have absolutely nothing better to do.

    Be warned, though – it’s penned by a sociologist, Dorit Geva, attached to the notorious Sorosoid Central European University, with a very peculiar, actually unwholesomely obsessive, focus on ‘gender’ ( which of course means ‘sex’ ) so it’s basically worthless.

    But that little extract above may be useful when Bojo tries to string Brits along with the ‘consultation’ broached before the recent election, which I’m willing to bet will be loaded with the elite’s chosen ‘experts.’

    UK Tax-Funded Climate Talk-Shop? Will BOTH Sides Be Heard? 

    Anything to avoid proper democracy.

    It’s not a new trick…

     Ministers accused of ‘sham’ consultation over gay marriage – Telegraph

    ….so the people – in Britain as in France – should stand ready to call it out.

    Elites are not some phantasm conjured up by patriot ‘populists.’

    They are real.

    They are the Enemy Within!
