    Good News From Greenwich? Yes, But.. 


    Since we have often lambasted Jellyfish Johnson’s government for failing to step in and sort out pinko creeps…

    .

    .

    …who have got control of –  and perverted the purpose of – public institutions…

    .

    Will Bojo Guard Gardens Against Ex-BBC Left Hack?

    …I need to give credit where credit is due, in respect of the goings-on in Greenwich.

    Academic who backed ‘decolonising’ curriculum dropped from museum board
    Chair resigns from Royal Museums Greenwich after minister’s refusal to reappoint Dr Aminul Hoque

     

    On the face of it, welcome news

    Anyone who endorses ‘decolonisation’ and/or any kind of BLM Un-British hogwash should of course be excluded from any input into cultural life.

    And if there are any geezers like ‘Charles Dunstone, the founder of Carphone Warehouse, ‘ who choose to take the side of such undesirables, good riddance to them too.

    The millionaire ‘reportedly resigned from the Royal Museums Greenwich board after the culture secretary, Oliver Dowden, refused to reappoint trustee Dr Aminul Hoque, an education academic at Goldsmiths, University of London.’

    https://www.theguardian.com/culture/2021/may/01/charles-dunstone-quits-as-museum-group-chair-amid-culture-war

    You can read the whole story and make up your own mind.

    Greenwich is, or was, when I visited years ago, a nice place, and Canadian readers may note that General Wolfe…

    .

    .

    .who won Canada for the Empire, is buried there.

    One would hope that any museum there, or anywhere in the UK, should instil pride in, rather than unease at, Britain’s heritage.

    But what comes across quite glaringly is that Bojo’s Culture Secretary, Oliver Dowden, seems abashed.

    Instead of revelling in an achievement…

    …Dowden seems to be playing it down.

    He should be going on TV, with a warning call to every alien influence out there.

    .

    One Down, Dozens More Heads To Roll! ‘

    Why isn’t he?

    There are plenty more uppity undesirables that need put in their place..

    .. or rather, OUT of the places they should never have been allowed into, like the current crop of cultural marxists in London’s grandest museum.

      Greenwich was a very pleasant borough when I lived there.
      I must admit I didn’t know there was a museum, nor that General Wolfe was buried there but I was a young student more intent on fun than cultural stimuli.

      The fact that BLM tentacles (‘decolonisation’) have spread to outlying areas and are no longer just throttling big city institutions is horrifying.
      If this Mr. Dowden is doing something about it, that’s pleasing but MUCH more is needed.
      The BBC should be top of theist for a clean-up, though I agree with all you say about Kew Gardens, and the British Museum too.
      If all public funding is stopped until those BLM fans are removed, I think that would work.
      So why does Dowden stay at arm’s length from the problem?

      I think the Tories do a little tinkering as in Greenwich so they can answer when asked what are they doing about our institutions being hijacked by marxists.
      But on the big issues, like getting the BBC and the British Museum back from the left, they are useless.

    ‘Nothing Wrong’ With ‘Woke,’ Bojo? Get Real -It’s Sick And Subversive! 


    Not that many people without an empty space between their ears ever truly trusted Johnson…

     

    But NOW he’s said what he thinks!

    —————-

    He sees ‘nothing wrong with being woke.’

    ==

    =

    ‘Woke’ is the word which was conjured up to encompass all the sick subversive cultural marxist evils perpetrated on Western society.

    Or try Wikipedia for a not unsympathetic definition or two!

    …a “single-word summation of leftist political ideology, centered on social justice politics and critical race theory…”

    …..

    NOT anything to which patriotic conservatives would want to get nearer than a country mile!

    Johnson’s spokesman was forced to field a string of questions about whether Johnson is “woke”, after the shadow foreign secretary, Lisa Nandy, described Biden as a “woke guy,” referring to his support for Black Lives Matter and trans rights.

    BLM and the Freak Show? Two foul phenomena!

    Asked about her comments on Wednesday, Johnson appeared uncomfortable, before remarking that there was, “nothing wrong with being woke”.

    https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2021/jan/21/no-10-takes-relaxed-view-as-biden-removes-churchill-bust-from-oval-office

    Nobody who calls him-or-herself conservative should be surprised, but sadly some will be, those who manage to dupe themselves ( wishful thinking, forgivable but foolish!) despite all evidence to the contrary –

    NZ’s Collins Admires Both Iron Lady And Crooked H? 



    I don’t pay as much attention as I should to New Zealand’s politics but since there’s an election imminent, I have had a look at one party leader there already…

    NZ’s Pinko Princess, Cowering From Cannabis Candour? 

    ….and now a quick glance at her rival, Judith Collins.

     
    Judith Collins MP.jpg

    Judith Collins

    .

    At first sight, she seems infinitely preferable to Pinko Princess Arden, though it says more about the media in-crowd than its does about Ms. Collins that ‘furore erupted when she told an interviewer that obesity was a matter of “personal responsibility.” ‘

    Health freaks much prefer state sticky-beaking to telling it like it is.

    There no doubt are some fat people whose genetic or other conditions are outside their control, but there are a lot more who are just ill-disciplined hogs.

    .

    …..

    And how about this?

    The opposition leader has asked reporters if there was “something wrong” with her being white…

    I’m sure some at least of those reporters, and all the BLM racists in the world, would say yes, of course there’s something wrong with being white. 

    Their war-cry, after all, is rabidly racist, with its clear exclusion of ‘White Lives’ from those that ‘Matter!’

    And not just white people’s lives but those of non-blacks in general.

    Young mother shot in head for saying ‘All LivesMatter

    ‘This killing was reported so quietly that barely anyone even noticed’

    But that’s obvious…

    ….from what the BLM rabble say and do.

    …..but – wait for it…

    When all the PC hogwash gets too much even for Obummer, it must be bad.

    On the other hand, he may be a menace but he’s no fool and may just have realised that normal people can’t stand PC.

    Interesting also to note that the BBC report felt it necessary to explain what the non-word ‘woke’ means to the dimwit pinkos who use it.

    ‘Woke’ Is A Past Tense Verb, Not An Adjective – Please Use ‘Red Nazi!’ 

    But most fascinating were the examples offered of Dem notables obliged to proffer kow-tow apologies to the woke-weasel ratpack.

     
    Before withdrawing from the race, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand went on television to apologise for using the term “illegal alien” in the past.’

    But they are illegal aliens!

    Apologising for using the proper, legally-approved words that describe the undesirables whom I tend to refer to as crimmigrants?

    Identifying?”

    I think that’s called LYING..

    But the worst has to be The Southbender Butt-Boy!

    ….Pete Buttigieg has apologised for his use of the phrase “all lives matter”.

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-50239261

    In other words, the queer mayor performed  the same grovel-act we wrote about when another Dem wannabe abased himself before a mob of shrieking black racists four years ago

    Booed By Racist Mob For Saying “White Lives Matter,” Democrat U-Turns ASAP 

    …even when he had explained that to him, as with all sane citizens,  ALL lives matter.

    Contemplating their racism is unpleasant, but contemplating Butt-Boy’s base apology is nauseating!

    ‘Woke’ Is A Past Tense Verb, Not An Adjective – Please Use ‘Red Nazi!’ 


    A very good article in Gatestone last week…

    https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/14794/the-dangerous-stalinism-of-the-woke-hard-left

    ….about the nazi-style intolerance of the modern Left.

    But although its author is an emeritus professor, and stated the case powerfully, he disappointed me by not only using but including in the title, the non-word ‘woke.’

    ==

    Image result for sleeping beauty

    ‘He woke the princess with a kiss.’ That means he ended her sleep, not that he turned her into a shrill young marxist bitch.

    ==

    It has a meaning, the simple past tense of the verb ‘to wake.’

    We should not allow it to be perverted by nitwits into an adjective…

    brainwashing

    …the meaning of which is somewhere between ‘resurrected as a tantrum-prone, clueless zombie’ and ‘indoctrinated into intolerance.’

      Misusing the English language in this way is more than annoying.
      As you say, ‘woke’ is a verb and always has been.
      It’s only in the past year or two it’s been misused.
      Who started its misuse? When? Why?
      I have read that the French have an official authority to safeguard linguistic integrity and that they take their job seriously.
      The problem with introducing such a body in the UK or USA is that so many academics in both countries are more interested in leftwing propagandising than in advancing academic excellence.
      I expect it would end up vandalising English even more than it already has been.

    A ‘Woke’ Oz-Brat – And Other Linguistic Oddities… 


    Where do subversive weirdos get the notion that they can add ugly words to the English language?

    I was recently accused, wrongly as it turned out, of inventing the word ‘Traitrix’ to augment the English-speaking world’s vocabulary.

    It turned out that it was an old, maybe very old, word, but whatever, its meaning was clear enough…

    theresa junkcer judas

    Sign Up To Get Britain Out’s Letter – To Traitrix May! 

    merkel danger

    ..

    ..a female traitor, of whom there is an adequate sufficiency.

    It’s bad enough that they take respectable words like ‘gay’ which has always meant ‘cheerful’ and malevolently pervert its meaning to mean ‘perverted…’

    .

    slimy-things-did-crawl-with-legsupon

    …but when they steal the past tense of the verb ‘wake’ and totally twist it into an adjective, to be generically applied to pinko creep millennials, that is just taking the mickey – a yard and a half too far!

    I had not even been aware of ‘woke’ degradation till last month, when I saw it used to describe an obnoxious Australian brat whose fatuous parents ( both professors, of course!) and their fans were defending from disciplinary action…

    .

    The Year 4 student said the decision to take a stand was made “mostly” by herself but the subject had been discussed with her parents.

    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-09-12/national-anthem-protest-school-brisbane/

    ….after the obstreperous little bint disrespected the National Anthem.

    One might agree with Pauline Hanson that the little madam would benefit from a boot up the backside…

    ….

    …though really, I’d say, those ghastly parents deserve it more.

    But then some cultural marxist klutz called the 9 year old a ‘woke’ child.

    Huh? I was baffled!

    So I looked it up.

    But this week I saw a brilliant description of its post-left-hijacking meaning.
