    Breaking News? A Boris U-Turn? Yawn! 


    The Independent’s explosive revelations, that Boris, soon after he entered the Commons, applauded the way the British shouldered the burden of empire…

    .

    .

    …and lauded the way UK colonial heroes fought to outlaw slavery…

    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/boris-johnson-colonialism-africa-british-empire-slavery-a9564541.html

    ..will come as no surprise to those who have noted the way the flip-floppy fop has u-turned on everything possible.

    Is it possible he actually meant what he wrote in 2002?

    It was, after all, true, and is why most Brits, even despite the leftist drivel pumped into young minds by traitor teachers…

    .

    .

    …are still proud of their forefathers’ achievements…

    .

    .

    …a glorious imperial heritage!

    Or was he, as usual, just wittering for a specific audience?

    Does his absurd appeasement gibbering to a BLM audience last week represent his real attitude?

    What do YOU think?

    I am asking not merely from curiosity but because I honestly expect him to pull a ‘yuey’ of some sort on Brexit, whether it be on fisheries, or submission to the ECJ, or, God Forbid, another sell-out of British Ulster.

    Want A Laugh? A Cretin’s Anti-Cotton Tantrum! 


    Some dimwit in the USA named Daniell Rider has been ranting at the Hobby Lobby store, for displaying…

    ….what?

    Human heads? Pin-Ups of evil people, like Hitler…

    …………

    …or Osama Bin  Laden?

    Nope!

    COTTON!

    000000000000

    “This decor is WRONG on SO many levels. There is nothing decorative about raw cotton… A commodity which was gained at the expense of African-American slaves.”

    Then, calling for “sensitivity,” she asks them to remove it.

    Calling for sanity, one might suggest Rider be removed from Facebook!

    My thanks to American Politics-News for that hilarious report on the sheer PC cretinism which afflicts Rider and so many other uptights, and for reporting the entirely apposite response by one Facebook critic.

    Unpatriotic Epidemic Spreads To Canada? Cure Required! 


    Canada had a long record of slave-trading, of course, and it is a well-established historical fact that maltreated slaves…

    Tommy-rot, as they say.

    When I was a kid in Stratford, we had but one black family in the whole town, and, as it happens, they attended the same church and were therefore occasional guests in our farm-house.

    http://dailycaller.com/2017/09/24/now-canadian-league-football-players-are-protesting-canadas-anthem/

    I admit that, at the age of seven, having only seen black people in Tarzan movies, I did once ask Mr. —- ( no name, as his descendants may still be around)  – very politely – if he possessed a spear…

    …to which he equally politely replied that no, he didn’t!

    In the big cities there may well have been more of what are perhaps these days termed ‘Afro-Canadians,’ but there were never any reports of inter-racial trouble that I recall.

    Nowadays, of course, trouble exists, and is exacerbated by trouble-makers, copy-catting America’s BLM racists.

    Racist BLM Haunts The Ruins Of ‘Toronto The Good!’ 

    So although appalled, we must not be too surprised at the story in the Daily Caller.

    Now Canadian League Football Players Are Protesting Canada’s Anthem

     On Sunday, before the game between the Saskatchewan Roughriders and Calgary Stampeders, the Roughriders players locked arms in solidarity while “O Canada” was sung before fans in Regina, Saskatchewan.

    Even when I was a kid in Stratford, I knew full well that good Canadians stand to attention when the anthem plays, arms at their sides, not inter-locked with whomsoever happens to be handy.

    How dare these over-paid oafs diss ‘O Canada!’

    The actual Canadians amongst them should hang their heads, not lock their arms. As for the American players in Canada, we have to ask if their duty of respect for the Dominion in which they are guests is somehow of lesser significance than screwed-up notions of racial solidarity?

    I echo Trump.

    Fire the SOBs!

    Trump’s Question Was One Real Historians Always Ask! 


    As a non-American whose degree was in politics and modern history and whose post-grad diploma was in – wait for it!- Soviet and East European Studies (taken on the principle that a good doctor should study disease) I was amazed at the furore over President Trump’s sensble question –

    =

    ‘’People don’t realize, you know, the civil war – if you think about it, why? People don’t ask that question, but why was there a civil war? Why could that one not have been worked out?”

    Bingo!

    The whole point of being a serious historian is that one asks questions.

    Some people don’t.

    They either don’t care enough to do so, or as in the case of an ex ABCNightline hack named Tom McCarthy…

    ===

    ==

    ..writing in the UK’s left-liberal Guardian, they are so infatuated with the ideological appeal of one possible answer stuck in that airy space between their ears that they just won’t have it budged by questions.

    . The civil war was fought over slavery – the enslavement in the United States of African Americans – and related territorial, economic and cultural struggles.      

     https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/may/01/donald-trump-civil-war-cause-andrew-jackson

    No, it was fought on the issue of whether America was a federal or confederal union.

    The latter alternative definition was favoured by The Southern States, where it was taken to mean they had a right to secede.

    Lincoln ( who held views on race relations that would nowadays get him targetted by witch-hunting gangs like SPLC!) did not accept any such breakaways as legitimate.

    Fort Sumter, April, 1861

    =

    Had the war been about the enslavement in the United States of African Americans then Lincoln would have issued his emancipation edict before the fighting started or during the bombardment of Fort Sumter.

    In fact slavery was AN issue, but not the main one that divided North and South, and not all slave ‘states’ adhered to the Confederate cause.

    Slaves in Kentucky, Delaware, Missouri and Maryland were not included in Lincoln’s Emancipation, which came nearly two years after the first shots were fired.

    It was merely a support strategy for the Northern war effort.

    I realise this is will be read by many Americans, and they may disagree with some or all of what I have said.

    Unlike the media mug McCarthy, though, I hope they will put forward their positions and support them with history-based arguments     – not seek to impose one opinion as if it were a matter of Papal Infallibity

      Even most of our high school kids know the War Between The States, as it is still known in the South, was about secession, not slavery.
      That Guardian/ABC journalist sounds like he studied with Reverend Al Sharpton!
