    National Book Day? CANCEL Random House Bullies! 


    I didn’t realise it was National Book Day ( here where I am or around the world?)

    But when better to call for a boycott of a major publishing business which has deployed a ‘diversity’ drone…

    .

    .

    ….against an author who spent near ten years of gard work to complete a book, 750 pages, only to be given a diktat.

    The bullying buffoons at Random House had decided it was, guess what..

    ‘..too white!’

    The History Makers is about famous historians, but I wonder what future historians will have to say about this frenzied, censorious age we are living through…

    ..

    .

    …beset physically by the Chinese Virus and otherwise by the BLM hate plague.

    Richard Cohen was told by his publisher to produce new chapters and expand others..

    https://www.theguardian.com/books/2021/may/16/whos-missing-top-author-stirs-anger-with-too-white-history

    One might think he had included all those he thought deserved to be included, or as many as would make his book a good read.


    But not good enough for the BLM fellow-travellers high up in Random House, so they forced him to go scavenging around for less-white ‘historians.’

    It seems he found a few, but I do have to wonder if the addition of the notorious agitator W. E. B. Du Bois…

    .

    ….an American who crowned a career of leftist political agitation by actually taking out membership of the Vermin Party, the CPUSA…

    .. 

    .

    …was the author’s way of poking fun at his intimidatory publishers.

    Read Du Bois’ long entry in wikipedia, how he ‘traveled around the world, visiting Russia and China. In both countries he was celebrated. Du Bois later wrote approvingly of the conditions in both countries... https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/W._E._B._Du_Bois

    Myopic? Or just dishonest?

    Neither characteristic qualifies a man to be a worthwhile historian.

    Nor does politically correct interference in a knowledgeable writer’s product say much for Random House.

    Even less when, after he complied, they refused to publish the book.

    It was to do with the publisher’s sensitivities,” says Cohen…“I was then asked to write more, and have done about another 18,000 words.”

    .

    The History Makers is due to be published in the UK by Weidenfeld & Nicolson
    The History Makers is due to be published in the UK by Weidenfeld & Nicolson.

    Now, despite the rewrite, publication of the book in the US has been cancelled, according to sources in New York.

    Cancellation, the 21st century’s answer to book-burning…

    Don’t buy ANY Random House books.

      Du Bois was a big star of those Soviet ‘peace’ groups they set up to undermine Western resistance in the Cold War. I had forgotten all about him .
      Random House have really treated this writer very badly.
      You should have added their email address the way you usually do. I could look it up but I dont have your dogged commitment!

    Basic Logic – Crawlers Get Stood On! 


    Why anybody ever took the Golden Globes awards seriously is puzzling.

    I never did!

    My Kittens Matter More Than Trivia-Obsessed BBC! 

    To be fair, the GG circus, run by a small cabal of journos ( less than 100 opinionated hacks) – leftist journos, at that….

    .

    Image result for golden globes bias

    …is no more absurd than the Cannes Film Festival, similarly orchestrated by a show-biz in-crowd, glittering prizes handed out with no reference to the size of cinema audiences.

    showbiz these days…

    Creeps – “Good Acting” Not Enough To Earn Acting Award! 

    …will be replete with imbecilic ‘celebs’ braying about ‘diversity’ and

    degenerates

    Can It, Cannes-Lefts!

    …aka uptight

    An elite honouring their favourites, often for sicko movies.

    The stuck-ups don’t seem to get it.

    .

    Ordinary ticket-buying people are those whose opinion should matter.

    So today when I read that Tom Cruise has joined other ‘celebs, ‘ putting the boot into the Golden Globes clique

    On 4 May, the HFPA announced changes to improve diversity and credibility, including diversifying members.. https://www.theguardian.com/film/2021/may/10/tom-cruise-nbc-golden-globes-hollywood-foreign-press-association

    … I had to laugh, not only at what one hopes is a typo..

    ( presumably they mean not ‘members’ but ‘membership,’ since diversifying the members would require surgery!)

    …but at how crawling on their bellies to the PC juggernaut wins them no rest from reproach but rather further nasty uptight nagging…

    .

    .

    …or as the UK Pravda berk David Eades impartially reported, at 9am today, Jakarta time, ‘growing outrage at their lack of diversity! ‘

    Eades is a damn disgrace, his left bigotry starkly on display,  again…

    David ‘Some’ Eades – BBC Bigot! 

    David Eades - David Eades Photos - SportAccord 2018 - Day 5 - Zimbio

    So NOBODY Objects To Toppling Robert E Lee? BBC Censorship! )

    …as he went on to accuse the GG gang of ‘extraordinary complacency.’

    ??

    That’s opinion, Eades, not fair and balanced reporting.

    But then, you are a BBC hack.

    Tell the truth!

    Among whom is the ‘outrage’ growing?

    Take a walk to the shops or the pub.

    Can you see ANY ‘outrage?’

    Who cares about ‘diversity?’

    Not NORMAL people!

      That’s exactly what I wanted to say but now you’ve saved me the bother, as usual.
      Thanks!

      After reading this, I had the misfortune to be in someone else’s home when BBC showed us part of a ‘musical extravaganza’ in which the ‘star’ wore a Union Flag skirt.
      She was an inarticulate young woman but delivered a ‘speech’ about what she called ‘watmail privilege,’ and ‘misogyny’ and ‘diversity.’
      I think she meant ‘white male’ but her education never reached basic pronunciation.
      The BBC gave her name but I had never heard of her.
      It’s very sad how so many ‘singers’ are stupid young women of that kind.
      And men, I hasten to add.

      Golden Globes always trash, and as for other show business shows, like the Oscars, they used to be interesting but with all this diversity rubbish that puts the sex or race of the nominees above their acting talent, just turns people off

    Jellyfish Can’t Even Keep The Flunkeys In Order! 


    Civil servants are paid to do what they’re told. They are paid from the pockets of UK tax-payers.

    UK tax-payers elect MPs to choose a government that gives civil servants their orders.

    oooo

    BUT….

    The Civil Service has been running ‘safe space sessions’ for their employees, using taxpayer funds to do so.

    =

    How pathetic can they get?

    Thanks be that SOMEBODY within the civil service leaked the information that some wastrel slugs in senior positions in Whitehall have been ‘using taxpayer money to fund ‘safe space sessions’ for staff who had been “caused anxiety” by the recent Government-commissioned race report….’

    Has Anyone Costed Bojo’s BLM Appeasement Commission 

    Aaah, yes, THAT commission!

    The session conducted by the Civil Service was headlined: “Safe Space Session – Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities Report”. It was hosted by the ‘Faith and Minority Ethnic Network’ (FAME) at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).

    That kind of pinko creep outfit should not be allowed in a government office.

    Good journos – there are a few still, somewhere, I hope – should investigate how many other government departments allow such toxic fungi to flourish under the roofs of buildings maintained by the public purse.

    ‘Anxiety?’

    The skunks need a boot up their backsides – that would give them something to get ‘anxious’ about.

    Right, let’s ID the Tory MP who must fire the slugs responsible – or resign!

    =

    Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy - GOV.UK

    That’s Kwasi Kwarteng, Conservative MP for Spelthorne, who has been Secretary of State for Business etc. for some time.

    Easy job, identifying him!

    Disappointing, though, for he has been known to talk sense.

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9202743/Minister-slams-Black-Lives-Matter-cartoon-like-view-British-Empire.html

    One hopes these pathetic therapy-for-uptights sessions were held behind his back. But if he knew about and approved the weasels’ wokery, he has to go.

    But that’s up to Jellyfish Johnson – will he get this sorted?

    Jellyfish Cartoon, Ocean Jellyfish s, face, text, jellyfish png

    We know he himself is no conservative, that he thinks that it’s OK to wallow in wokery.

    And the leftist ratbags are certainly doing that!

    Thanks to The Point and to Turning Point for exposing this scandalous abuse of public resources.

    The aim of FAME is to make BEIS “more Faith and Race-confident”. FAME’s mission involves promoting “diversity awareness” and “working with external partners to promote diversity”.
