    Get Ready! Einstein Statues To Be Toppled? 


    We haven’t heard much in the news recently of statues of heroes being hauled down in response to tantrums by whining millennial morons.

    Last year there were numerous examples of anti-history vandalism, or threats thereof…

    New Statue Target For The Scum – CHURCHILL? 

    =======

    …in various countries, from the United Kingdom…Ontario Teachers Talk Tripe On Sir John A MacDonald …to Canada, and of course all over the USA, perhaps the land most seriously afflicted by the mental illness called, illogically, the ‘progressive’ ideology .

    =

    =====

    The villainous persons whose contribution to their countries’ achievements had to be repudiated included Canada’s first PM, though curiously, while Britain’s Winston Churchill was named as a candidate for demolition, nothing was heard about the London monument to the source of the world’s vilest ideology.

    =

    Far from it. As if to highlight left-liberal double standards, some disgraceful Germans erected a brand-new idol before which fans of tyranny may worship.

    Next Week, To Germany’s Shame, Hitler Statue Unveiled

    But now we have a new shock-horror revelation – in The Guardian, so it must be heeded! – and it’s all about Albert Einstein, who has been found posthumously guilty of ‘xenophobia!’

    Ho-hum.

    Travel is said to broaden the mind, but anyone who has heard Brits come home from the Costa del Sol complaining that ‘the Germans’ rise early and hog all the best spots…

    =

    Is she German? Who cares?!?!

    …around the hotel pool knows that ain’t necessarily so!

    Much the same goes for sport.

    The large number of young men who support their national teams by journeying to foreign lands and bashing other young men who support other national teams…

    =

    =

    …..are not exactly persuasive evidence of the mind-broadening effects of foreign travel.

    Einstein certainly did evince some disturbing attitudes, such as when he pleaded for mercy for the notorious Rosenbergs, convicted communists traitors – Case closed: The Rosenbergs were Soviet spies – Los Angeles Times – a plea that mercifully fell on deaf ears, since the two red swine were duly executed.

    But on one of his trips to pre-Communist China, he came out with the following words, which if you or I were to echo them in, say, modern Britain, about certain ‘ethnic minorities’ there, would quickly land us in the clammy hands of Theresa May’s thought-police.

    “It would be a pity if these Chinese supplant all other races. For the likes of us the mere thought is unspeakably dreary.”

    As for the Japanese?

    The “intellectual needs of this nation seem to be weaker than their artistic ones – natural disposition?”

    https://www.theguardian.com/books/2018/jun/12/einsteins-travel-diaries-reveal-shocking-xenophobia .’

    Having made friends here in Jakarta with people of both Japanese and Chinese ethnicity, I’d say Einstein was wrong.

    But are there calls now for Einstein’s monuments to be toppled?

    One hopes not, for inaccurate perceptions of other races’ qualities has nothing to do with why he was, and still is, honoured with statues.

    Einstein’s distinction rests on his intellectual prowess.

    Just as Captain Cook’s role in the history of The Lucky Country is honoured not for what he thought about Aborigines but for his great voyage of exploration which resulted in the discovery of what was previously regarded as Terra Incognita.

    Australia plans Captain Cook monument for anniversary.

    However, I suspect a double standard will continue to be operated by bad elements in Oz, and Britain, and Canada, and the USA.

    Because the ‘anti-statue’ movement is NOT composed of those concerned with right or wrong, but of cultural marxists, and their stupid dupes, ever-eager to undermine national pride and appreciation of their nations’ glories.

      I have never seen any Einstein statues here in Australia but there probably are some. It would be pathetic to knock them down for what he said about Asians. It is just not relevant.
      The same goes for Captain Cook. Without him there would be no Sydney or Melbourne or Brisbane. There would be no Australia. He deserves his statues.
      All this historical vandalism as you call it is completely pointless.
      Like re-naming Ayer’s Rock. If a minority wants to call it something else, they can but in school we learned it was Ayer’s Rock and so it is

      The morons are still making waves about statues and you do well to remind us of their idiocy, ‘useful idiots,‘ as Lenin categorized them.
      All the ‘greats’ have made mistakes and Einstein’s major one was his habit of giving communists the benefit of the doubt.
      As you say, his scientific brilliance got him his statues and neither his ‘xenophobia’ nor his political short-sightedness should be made an excuse for taking the statues down.

      Once again the Cook story is wrong Facts : He was never a captain, he didn’t discover Australia ( he was using Dutch maps) and was not the first English to arrive in Australia.

    Which of Canada’s Statues Will Be First To Go? 


    We’ve seen the whining nitwit Greens in Sydney who want to mess about with Captain Cook, and that marxist De Blasio in NYC pondering the toppling of Christopher Columbus.

    De Blasio To Cut American Core Out of Big Apple? 

    =

    But what of Canada?

    =

    ——

    Surely there must be targets galore for Antifa marxist goon-squads, statues of Englishmen, and Scots and Ulstermen, and Frenchmen – not to forget their sturdy pioneer womenfolk! – the Europeans who transformed the wilderness into a fine, prosperous country?

    I have one on my photo file.


    Empire Loyalists, in Hamilton, Ontario.

    Empire Loyalists!?!

    Good grief, I’m amazed Turdo himself has not been seen prowling the area with a hammer!

    Not only were these people descended from the wicked imperialist British, maybe even born in the monarchist Old Country, but they travelled from the rebellious American colonies to Canada, the better to ensure they could still live under the Crown and the Union Jack.

    =

    =

    Does that statue still stand in Hamilton, Ontario?

    The land on which those Empire Loyalists settled, indeed all of Hamilton, at one time, must have been the hunting grounds of some copper-skinned tribe!

    First Nations land plundered!?!

    So has that proud loyal family on their plinth been daubed with millennial grunt-words, or otherwise vandalised?

    Give it time – the Antifa vermin in Canada, just as much in the USA and Oz, are cultural marxists and are therefore dedicated to subversion of the Dominion’s Western heritage.

    =

    =

    A multicult cess-pool is their cherished goal!

    An update, please, since I’ve not been back to Canada for many years!

      There was some vandalism in Nova Scotia last year on a statue but I think it was those Micmac Indians got blamed.

    De Blasio To Cut American Core Out of Big Apple? 


    Whether NYC Mayor De Blasio is still the rotten red rat he was when he wandered off to the marxist gang in Nicaragua is a subject yet debated.

    Those who maintain he’s a leopard who lies about changing his spots will be strengthened in their argument by his latest subversive outburst, on the subject of Christopher Columbus.

    There’s a similarity between the whining of New York nutjobs on this and the snivelling little Australian Green squirt whom I just saw on France24, all a-fret about the statue of Captain Cook ‘offending’ Aborigines.

    Big deal.

    If they don’t like it, they can heed the advice of Dionne Warwick…

    …and just ‘Walk On By!’

    What almost all of the deranged communists, liberals and uncomplicated morons appear to overlook is that the straightforward, simple solution to these debates is the democratic one.

    I don’t mean action replays of the arrogance of the Charlottesville municipal councillors who voted 3-2 to dethrone the statue of Robert E Lee without giving the citizens a say by way of referendum.

    There are two arguments against the democratic method, one of which is that it’s up to the people’s superiors in the political elite to make up their minds for them…

    …because after all politicians know best. That’s much more ‘offensive’ than the sight of any piece of sculpture, so I’ll ignore it.

    The other, the same one Australian cultural marxists have deployed against the postal ballot on homo-weddings – that allowing the electorate a vote costs money.

    That too is outrageous – why not just abolish elections on grounds of expense?

    =

    But it’s a problem easily resolved, because America and Australia are multi-layered democracies, federal, state and municipal.

    That means that elections are held at least every two years (in the USA, and it can’t be that different in Oz.)

    All that needs to be done is let the debate run until the next scheduled round of voting for candidates for public office…

    …then add the referendum question to the ballot paper!

    But there’s a BIG obstacle to that idea.

    ========

    The Left abhor people power!

    So Red De Blasio, who could easily put the Columbus Question to New Yorkers on the same ballot paper when he runs for re-election in just over two months, may choose to abhor democracy.

    Who’s surprised?

      I wish he would go and be mayor of Managua, where his Sandinista communist friends are.
      My bet is he won’t touch Columbus. Too many Italian-American voters still around.
      Somebody might make him an offer he can’t refuse.

    Australian of the Year? Morrison’s a Better Bet Than Croome! 


    ————

     Croome

    ——-

    I was referred to this topic because there are allegedly moves to appoint a prominent poofter, Rodney Croome, to be the next Australian of the Year. What has this ‘gay’ activist done to merit such a distinction?

    But then many people on the body which decides the prize title do not exactly resemble regular Australians.

    Drawn from elitist agit-prop backgrounds, as at least some of them are, it’s not exactly surprising the selection committee chose that whinger Goodes as last year’s luminary. Since then, he  has come out with divisive drivel, a case of GOODES setting a BAD example. 

    During a recent interview with the BBC, the AFL star said some Australian policies had resulted in the suppression of indigenous people and other minorities and called for better education about the country’s history.

    ———————–

     Gas-bag Goodes

    ================

    He also said children needed to be taught that Australia wasn’t founded by Captain James Cook.

    What a simplistic outlook!

    Australia is a country, the Commonwealth of Australia, which did not exist prior to its discovery by Cook and his Dutch and Portuguese contemporaries. It was founded by colonists under the auspices of the greatest force for good the world has ever known, the British Empire.

    ==============

    australian-flag51

    ===

    Yes, there was a land-mass there, since time immemorial, but the primitive people who wandered that wilderness would, of course, never have heard the word ‘Australia.’ To deny Cook and other Western explorers due credit for what we today know as Australia is like denying Newton credit for the laws of gravity – they too were always there, but it’s thanks to Newton we have identified them.

    The said land-mass was never previously constituted as a political entity. That achievement derived from Cook’s voyages of discovery, during which he FOUND Australia, and established the British Crown’s claim on the territory. 

    000
    Adam Goodes  – what an ingrate! Australian of the Year in 2014, but abused the honour by dissing the country which has given him such an enjoyable life!

    “I can use my position to help educate people to see through the things that they’ve been taught growing up,” he said.

    Yeah. or better still, help them get their young heads round facts, like the fame and fortune which is there for anyone in the Lucky Country to seek and find – just as he did.

    He should spend his every spare moment singing his country’s praises, not whining about his  prejudiced take on history.

    ===

    This year’s Australian of the Year? 

    ==========

    bolt-launch-380x262

    ===

    I’d suggest firstly Andrew Bolt. That would at least compensate for his victimisation via the anti-free-speech laws that the Government promised to reform but bottled out to appease another sort of disloyal whinger gas-bag.

    But another man has been drawn to my attention, a young fellow still, but who speaks in language that normal Aussie folk can identify with. 

    • morrison Scott Morrison
    • The headline today probably made you think I was going to propose Scott Morrison, who is indeed a good guy.

    But no, it’s Jason Morrison I’m talking about, a journo, who has a fine record of straight talking.

    Here’s an example of what I mean –

    INTERVIEW ON CHARLIE HEBDO KILLINGS MORRISON: I’m sorry. I have to interrupt here. I’m sorry I am not going to sit here and listen to people stupidly suggest that the French or the magazine or anyone brought this on themselves. Are you for real? We have a dozen people dead, killed in the name of a religious belief and you are seriously going to even slightly justify this?
    COMPERE: I don’t think anyone is justifying anything here.
     
    MORRISON: Well that’s not what I am hearing. I’m hearing this vaguely worded defence that France shouldn’t have done this and Sarkozy said that two years ago, and if they didn’t draw Mohammed then this might not of happened or whatever.
    It is obscene and a gutless way of almost saying they all deserved this.
    Well if you believe that you are about as bad as the idiot who thinks the pretty girl in the short skirt is asking to be raped so she better watch out.
    COMPERE: That’s a ridiculous comparison.
    MORRISON: Is it ridiculous? Tell me how?
    It’s the “you were asking for it” way of thinking. Your logic is those who drew the pictures should have known better and should have known what the response would be.
    tantrum
    Where as I say, if you can’t accept that people have different views to you then maybe the problem is with you if your response is the pull out an AK and go nuts.
    COMPERE: Well, the material was designed to offend.
    MORRISON: And so what?
    A lot of what I’ve heard here today has offended me but if you’re civilised, and I think that’s a major issue with some of the people we are talking about, if you are civilised you just get on with it. We shouldn’t have to have special rules for special people.
    COMPERE: No-one is suggesting special rules just an understanding that some things are offensive.
    MORRISON: So OK, we can have a bit of fun with the Pope, with Buddha, Jesus Christ on the Cross, The Dalai Lama, The Queen, Barack Obama. Want to add to the list?
    Behead-Prophet
    But not anything or anyone associated with Muslims. They’re special apparently. And that’s where all this free speech talk I’m hearing falls to bits. If you defend free speech then you defend offensive speech as well. It’s real easy to stand up for the nice stuff but sometime it gets ugly and if you are fair dinkum, as we say in Australia, you stand for all.
    Now, I’m not fond of Jesus Christ jokes but if you crack one you shouldn’t fear a few goons showing up with AK47s and shooting everyone in the office dead at their desks.
    So please, spare me the justification garbage for these terrorists being upset and just responding to provocation. If you think they are even slightly justified for killing people who drew some pictures then I’m afraid you are over in their column.
    COMPERE: OK I take your point but if you deliberately set out to offend there are consequences.
    MORRISON: Yes there. People might not buy your magazine or you get nasty letters in the mail from upset people but not a dozen of your workmates dead at their desks, and here we are again talking about consequences.
    silhouetee
    It’s back to the same argument as the pretty girl in the bar example. If you think she’s asking to be raped you are, in my view, unfit for civilised society. You are uncivilised and maybe that’s something we should be spending a bit of energy on.
    00000000000000000
    For those EXCELLENT words alone, Morrison deserves the title more than quite a few of the names read out by Tony Abbott earlier today!

      Wow, hompohobia and racism within the space of a few paragraphs. If you really wanted to be out of touch though, you could have trumpeted Abbott’s unilateral call to award Prince Philip a knighthood. Maybe he should have given you one as well, since it seems to be a day for handing out awards to foreign anachronisms and vestiges of empire.

      While we are discussing history, I would remind your Indonesian readers that “the greatest force for good the world has ever known, the British Empire” fought to continue this country’s subjugation under the Dutch during the Battle of Surabaya, resulting in the deaths of as many as 16,000 Republican fighters.

      All this will do is galvanize opinion in favour of an Australian republic, which is inevitable.
