    Oh, Golly! Oz Pinkos Outlaw Delightful Dolly! 

    Arising in fragile shape after last night’s party, I’m not exactly improved by reading the silly season news from Australia, where Canberra Hospital has removed golliwog dolls from its kiosk.




    Apparently some tiresome little twit named Emma Woolley sent out an indignant tweet which sparked condemnation online this week.
    You’d think poor Emma, maybe not so little, since she was at the hospital for a routine antenatal visit, might have more important things on what passes for her mind. She should be focused, surely, on plans for her baby.

    Mums-to-be, as far as I know, are best advised to avoid needless stress. Stress is also bad for grandmas, like that 72-year-old Brit who dared to defend gollies.

    I wish Emma well during all stages of her pregnancy but I do worry about her. There are obvious hazards pregnant pinkos should avoid. She might chance upon somebody wearing one of those patriotic t-shirts emblazoned with ‘Love It Or Leave It!’

    A spokesman for Woolworths told SBS the singlets, previously available in two stores, were “totally unacceptable. “The singlet was not one we ordered,” he said. 

    “It was delivered to us in error and should never been allowed on our shelves. We will review our processes to ensure this sort of error cannot happen again.  http://www.sbs.com.au/news/article/2014/10/13/woolworths-criticised-if-you-dont-love-it-leave-aussie-shirt


    Or she might be browsing for kiddies’ song-books, and come across that appalling racist ditty ‘Baa, Baa Black Sheep!’

    Generations of tots have delighted in gollywogs, which, if they have any kind of effect on attitudes, surely encourage kids to like black people. My old teddy never made me dislike bears!

    The photograph of the dolly display in the Canberra Times link : http://www.canberratimes.com.au/act-news/golliwogs-removed-from-sale-at-canberra-hospital-after-online-condemnation-looks quite nice and it looks like there’s no attempt by hospital management to force people to buy them. It’s a matter of free choice, now, sadly outlawed by craven administrators, whining pathetically that no offence was intended.

    Well, their PC crawl offends me, and will no doubt offend many Australians who see no reason to be denied a choice of playthings because Uptight Emma feels entitled to impose her puking pinko prejudice on everyone else.

    Golly! A Scots Nomination for Imbecile of the Year! 


    After our Imbecile of the Year award scheme was launched half-jestingly, various readers have indeed submitted nominations for the title, but does the level of imbecility really rival that of MSNBC’s Melissa. Imbecile of The Year? Can Anyone Beat MSNBC’s Manic Melissa?

    The first received actually doesn’t name any particular person but merely the cretinous cacaphony coming from Scots pinkos against a couple of Glasgow shops selling “racist” golly dolls alongside popular children’s toys in the run-up to Christmas.

    What the journo calls the ‘controversial dolls’ look completely innocuous to me, but anti-racism campaigners have lashed out at the stores for selling the dolls, which are regarded as outdated stereotypes.


    Here’s an uptight lassie named Nicola Hay – ,

    “The sale of these dolls perpetuate racism as they hark back to a time when the mockery and stereotyping of black people was considered a social norm rendering black people as submissive and lesser…

    • Scrooge_mc_Duck_full_color_by_MacOneill

    One hopes she’ll demand Disney suppress Uncle Scrooge, who exemplifies the stereotyping of her fellow-countrymen ( Ooops, PERSONS) as tight-fisted ratbags!

    Nicola is quite within her rights to urge the public to refrain from buying such overtly racist items…

    But intolerance emerges when she hopes the shop selling Golly dolls would consider taking them out of the store –



    Huh? Why not just let people choose what they like for their kids to play with?

    But I don’t think Nicola, just a silly girl, really, who got fed too much nonsense at uni, perhaps, comes close to Manic Melissa. 

    Having said that, how about the ‘objective’ journo who reported the daftness?

    Gollies are increasingly viewed as portraying negative stereotypes from a time when racial segregation was considered normal.

    • hogwashmeterred
    • Increasingly? Hogwash!

    Only viewed thus by pathetic pinkos with time on their hands in search of a grievance to keep them in their no doubt stimulating jobs in the Whine Industry.

    Common sense, however, from the shop manager, who is aware the dolls were considered offensive to some.


    Big deal.


    If you’re so easily offended, deal with it, grow up and get a life.

    The gollies are just toys, and have apparently been a popular sale in the store…

    So Scots are still sensible folk!

    “They’re not offensive to me and we are happy to sell them….a lot of people buy them.”

    And that’s THEIR decision. And should be. If Wee Nicola doesn’t like gollies, nobody’s going to make her buy one.

    Nor should she interfere with those that do like them – like normal well-balanced, unindoctrinated Scots parents and kids!
