    Next Woko-Diktat? Desecrate The Parthenon? 

    Deal to return Elgin Marbles to Greece at advanced stage – reports


    A sculpture of a centaur in combat with a man, part of the Parthenon Sculptures, on display in the British Museum.


    Amid all the talk about returning the Elgin Marbles to Greece, perhaps there are woke-weasels in the UK reading this….


    Was the Parthenon of Acropolis Built by Slaves?https://greekreporter.com/2022/12/03/acropolis-parthenon-built-slaves/

    ….who will soon be demanding that we should consider a return ONLY if some tawdry plaque is attached to the magnificent statuary, reminding visitors to the Acropolis of the role of slavery in its history?



    Further contemplation of what might flit through whatever wokers have between their ears…


    (I refer to the moronic removal of Teddy Roosevelt from his plinth in NYC) https://www.cnn.com/2021/06/24/opinions/teddy-roosevelt-statue-removal-pandering-jennings/index.html

    Watch – Patriot Lady V Foul-Mouth Brat! 


    …makes one wonder if Egypt will soon be urged to take down the splendid statues of slave-owning pharaohs….

    …..who may have been born, lived and died before Karl Marx was a twinkle in his Daddy’s eye….



    …but hell, that’s no excuse for not punishing them for failure to follow the diktats of 21st century cultural marxism.

    Who’s Losing Their Elgin Marbles? 

    I’m not going to get into the argument (not today, at least!) about Comrade Corbyn’s latest vow to return the Elgin Marbles to Greece…



    …but apart from any legal/historical issues, I’d worry about public access to the splendid statuary if they went home to the Acropolis.

    My concern arises from the ideological affinity between the current Greek PM Tsipras…



    ….and Italy’s  former PM, the repulsive Red Renzi…



    ….who was so ashamed of his country’s magnificent cultural heritage that he literally covered it uplest the sight of the female form offend pig-ignorant savages.

    Since the Elgins also include some very impressive breasts…

    ….and since Red Tsipras’ has failed to remove hordes of backward savages, arrogant brutes…Ingrate Afghans – In Athens – Tell GREEK To “Go, Go!” …whose views on bare boobs are as primitive as that of the Ayatollahs, is there not a real risk that only those Marbles acceptable to sectarian uptights will be put on display in Athens?

    Or am I being unduly alarmist?

    After all, even under Theresa the Appeaser, the wretched woman who approves of shariah law, the private parts of Greek Goddesses have been available for inspection in the British Museum.

    Okay, maybe my worries are premature.

    Yet the more we hear this endless crescendo of infantile hogwash about how Western countries must use the cops and the courts to ensure that tantrum-prone minorities must never, ever be offended….

    …lawmakers were concerned about the painting’s effects on foreign visitors. “You have to think of the foreign guests, especially those from Muslim countries..” Boob Ban in Stockholm! Hurt Feelings Alert?  

    ….the more we should be concerned that the lousy sell-out elites, in all our countries, by pandering to sectarian uptights, may sacrifice Europe’s heritage on the altar of appeasement.

    If benighted aliens don’t care for European culture, then they should get the HELL out of Europe.

      You are not being alarmist at all.
      We have had to change our laws and give up a lot of our freedom because people come here and expect us to change to make them feel at home in our home.
      If we complain, we get insulted with stupid specially made up words like islamophobia and called racist if we tell them that their women have the same right as men to dress like British people.
      I am sick and tired of it.

      I think you dont need to worry about the Elgin goddesses busts, Ross, and I think you know it too.
      You are making your point by showing us how bad it could get if people bend over backwards to avoid upsetting sexist fools.
      Its like the way the media in England write up those sad ‘modest fashion’ shows where they try to make it cool for women in London 2018 to parade around as if it was Yemen centuries ago.
      Whats modest about being archaic.

      We cant do much about what happens in Iran but if the wives and daughters of immigrants to Western countries start dressing like Western women, we should give them top marks because that’s how good immigrants behave.
      Why do the media like to fawn over the backward ones that cant change out of their backward thinking,

      Ross is being alarmist, Penny, but in a good cause,
      There’s no serious danger of the Elgin Marbles being covered up if Corbyn gets in and sends them to his fellow-marxist Tsipras in Athens.
      If you read this blog a lot, you will see that Orwell is a big hero of Ross’s and it strikes me he is taking a leaf out of his hero’s books.
      Orwell originally wanted to call ‘1984’ ‘1948” or so my teacher told me.
      It was not meant to be taken literally but as an awful warning of an indeterminate future.
      It can happen here, or not.
