A worldwide overturning of values cannot take place without the annihilation of the old values
and the creation of new ones by the revolutionaries"

"There is growing unrest about the plan to cut 20,000 soldiers from the Army - a fifth of the total - and 'replace' them by expanding the Territorial Army by 15,000. It costs far more to train reservists, and their employers are often reluctant to let them be away from their jobs for up to a year. Colonel Bob Stewart, the Tory MP who led UN troops in Bosnia in the Nineties, has said many reservists could not be deployed overseas. This being the case, why in earth does the Government think it is more important to use our overseas aid budget to give money to foreign dictators and tyrants rather than spending it to defend our country properly?" [Simon Heffer, Daily Mail, 27 April 2013].

"[A] short insight into the daily grind of a working soldier in Afghanistan. Early morning, as couple of weeks ago, we found ourselves on the way down an ever-widening wadi. The murmur and gurgle of the stream alongside the dusty footpath we were on, was peaceful; it reminded me of home. Our eyes constantly flicked between the waist-high growth next to the water and the powder puffs of dust exploding from underneath our boots. We trained for this, the man ten yards in front of me, would look to the left and down, I would to the right and down; the man ten yards behind me to the left and down; and endless repeat that kept us alive. We'd gone about two clicks when a hoarse whisper from Mike, the full screw behind me, jerked me to a halt just as I started another step. 'Linc', he said, 'stop right there, don't move!'.  I froze with my left foot in the air, rocked back onto my right heel. My eyes flickered, I blinked, I can see again - for a moment back there, I'd gone blind from shock. 'That was an, IED, eyes on, call!' In front of me, behind me, the whole patrol had frozen; eyes darting around; like me, they waited. Sixty yards ahead, Pierce, our 'Vallon' man had turned around; he stared back at us with eyes as big as saucers. Scared *******s, paralyzed with fear, heart pounding like a trip hammer, I waited. I could feel a line of sweat trickle down the side of my face. Man, this is not good, if ever there was a bad call, this is it. Under the combined weight of the pack on my back and body, my right leg trembled. Thoughts raced through my mind. 'Am I standing on something, a trip wire underneath the sand, an IED I can't see, what? For ****s sake, come on Mike, I'm dying here!' There is a movement behind me, a soft footfall; I felt a nudge against my left thigh. 'Hold onto my rifle,' He said, 'steady yourself, then look down and slowly step back into the footprint behind you.' I took hold of the barrel, looked down; saw both at the same time. I was standing in between two IED pressure pads. So fresh was the plant that I could see where the mixture of covering sand and dust had sagged in on itself. In the slanted rays of the early morning sun, I could even make out the shapes below the sand. Even the brush marks were they carefully whisked the excess powdery camouflage dust away were clearly visible. The morning breeze that would have covered all the brush mark with dust hadn't started yet, thank God for that. We made it that time. ... As for 'Vallon' man; it wasn't his fault, I stepped outside his line of sweep"

"Since we have decided to join the air strikes on IS, can we please bring forward the defence review, scheduled for next year? The present, shrunken services were emasculated because of the ridiculous view that there was no likely threat to our country, and that it was more important to spend money on African dictatorships via our overseas aid budget. If Mr Cameron thinks the threat from IS is as lethal as he says it is, then he needs to put more money into defence. That's all there is to it"
[Simon Heffer, Daily Mail, 27 September 2014].


Sergeant Blackman

"I find it quite morally baffling that [Marine A] could get a ten-year sentence when someone like Baby P's mother only served a few years. If you put these people next to each other, the moral gap is huge. he has been given a longer sentence than some rapists and child molesters. People think he murdered someone in cold blood. But that person was a terrorist insurgent intent on killing British personnel and maiming them and, given half a chance, would do the same thing here"
[Former Lance Corporal Matt Croucher, the most highly decorated Marine to serve in Iraq and Afghanistan, quoted at source].

"The Prime Minister says that Robert Graves's Goodbye to All That is one of his favourite books. Really? This clear-eyed account of the First World War makes it absolutely plain ... that British and Commonwealth troops frequently killed German captives after they had surrendered. Everyone knew. Nobody cared. So why is Marine [A] in prison for doing the same ... ?"
[Peter Hitchens, Mail on Sunday, 26 January 2014].

"Sgt Blackman's most serious crime - by which I mean the real reason he got his murder sentence - was using politically incorrect and highly disrespectful language before dispatching the wounded man. ... Sgt Blackman wasn't being tried for what he did - something which in the context of every battlefield in history is entirely routine - but rather for how it might have looked in the eyes of people who know nothing of war but nonetheless feel comfortable deluding themselves that administering the coup de grace to a fatally injured enemy combatant is somehow akin to, say, putting a bullet in the head of some random civilian on the streets of London"

"It does matter whether or not the enemy wears a uniform or poses as a civilian till he's within range to kill. All our senior soldiers in their comments on the case of Sergeant Blackman pretended that there is no difference between fighting uniformed soldiers who adhere to the Geneva Convention and savages who only take prisoners in order to torture them to death. This pretence originates on the multicultural taboo on discriminating between cultures. In wars soldiers very quickly shed such dangerous rubbish and quite naturally they will be less inclined to take prisoners if the enemy doesn't"

"General Houghton must know he was mouthing mendacious liberal pieties when he justified the court marshal sentence with the remark that 'murder is murder'. It's not. Not even in peaceful civil society. That's why our courts often free women who have murdered their own children because of the mitigating factor of post natal depression. So even in peaceful Britain murder is not murder. How much more is that true of a killing that takes place under the stress of a brutal war against a savage enemy?"

"[A]s lefties are fond of saying, 'We are all responsible'. Sergeant Blackman fought for us. He was betrayed by those in power who sent him to fight in the first place. But we also have failed Sergeant Blackman by forgetting his suffering and by not fighting for him as he fought for us"

"Sgt Blackman has been used as a political scapegoat to appease the enemy, in an attempt to look good on the international stage"   /   "People are getting sick and tired of living under the leftwing liberal iron glove that says, 'If you are not a minority, you don't matter'"

Identity Politics

"European culture has been gutted by Post-Modern 'victim'-obsessed PC indoctrination which has already warped the minds of the young" [comment at: source].

The following extended extract is from the article: The Origin of 'Identity Politics' & 'Political Correctness'

"Identity politics (sometimes dubbed 'political correctness') is the result of a political-Left major backlash against the mass of ordinary people (in Europe and 'the West'), beginning in the 1920s/30s, in the wake of the persistent failure of Marxist theory to be realised in European 'revolution' or any real change through democracy. In shifting the blame away from Marxist theory and those gullible enough to adhere to it, and on to those the theory had prescribed and predicted would have been the beneficiaries, if only they had responded accordingly ('the [white, male] workers'); then the cognitive-dissonance within the political-left mindset caused by this crisis to an extent was salved"

"As with any fervent ideology, a hallmark of the political-Left is interpreting anything and everything in its own ideological terms to claim as a manifestation of the ideology and its prophecy - jumping on a bandwagon, so to speak; though here only to hijack it. The bandwagon here was, of course, the American civil rights movement, which though enjoying ubiquitous support within black communities - to the point often of various forms of extremism - featured virtually nil endorsement of socialism ... It is from the time of this co-option that 'identity politics' dates; many considering that the movement was incorporated into the Left in the wake of King's assassination in 1968 - the major turning-point year in political-Left politics generally"

"'Civil rights', as the first great 'single-issue' campaign, served not least to provide an acceptable cloak for the Left to avoid provoking a resurgence of McCarthysim. The major social upheaval of 'civil rights' with its large-scale and widespread rioting was easily the nearest thing in then recent US history to look like the promised Marxist 'revolution', and obviously was just the practical application the 'theory' was seeking. Moreover, the protagonists (black Americans) were eminently separable form the now despised 'workers' per se, in being presentable as a new 'group; from outside of the former fray of 'boss' versus 'worker'.

"This accident of history served to add 'black' to 'woman' as 'the new oppressed' ... 'The worker' in effect was retrospectively stereotyped as both 'man' and 'white'. With the inverse of this stereotype of 'white' being not just 'black American' but 'black' - that is, ethnic-minority generically ... so it was that the new 'agents of social change' / 'disadvantaged' / 'oppressed' were extended from women to also include all ethnic minorities"

"It is only with the knowledge of how this developed that sense can be made of why ethnicity is held above the myriad other possible differences that could be utilised as in-group markers, when in fact there is nothing inherent in ethnicity as an in-group marker to produce inter-group prejudice that is particularly more pernicious"

"Indeed, the worst inter-communal conflicts nominally between different ethnicities usually are between different cultural heritages with no discernible 'racial' differences of any kind - and what (non-ethnic) differences there are can be minimal; the lack of contrast actually fuelling the intensity of conflict, such is the need for groups to feel distinguished from each other"

"Furthermore, ethnic prejudice is anything but restricted to or even predominantly 'white' on 'black': inter-ethnic (eg, 'black' on Asian) and ethnic-on-'white' 'racism' can be, often is and may usually be the greater problem; and a negative attitude to a certain ethnicity does not imply a similar attitude to other ethnicities"

"The specific US experience, given the highly divisive politics in the wake of the American Civil War over the basis of the Southern US economy in African slavery, does not translate to elsewhere; notably not to Europe - as was starkly evidenced in the experience of World War II 'black' American GIs stationed in England in how they were favourably received by locals, who sided with them when discriminated against"

"'Racial divides' in European 'white' host countries are the result not of mutual antipathy but affiliative forces, principally within migrant enclaves and secondarily within the 'host' community; in both cases being through in-group 'love', not out-group 'hate'" [EMcD: though the latter part of this observation is indeed true in normal circumstances, this does not, of course, take account of the Islamic/Koranic doctrines of Al-Hijra (Immigration), Taqiyya (Lying and Deceit), and Razzia/Ghazwa (Rape and Slavery), Dawa (Cultural and Stealth Jihad), and Terrorist and Violent Jihad, carried out by fundamentalist Muslims as they settle in increasing numbers in Western countries with the sole and deliberate purpose of making every remaining Dar al-Harb ('House of War': i.e. any non-Muslim country) into a Dar al-Islam ('House of Submission': i.e all Muslim countries) until Islam finally achieves its longed-for global Caliphate.]

The Frankfurt School

"The Frankfurt School believed that as long as an individual had the belief - or even the hope of belief - that his divine gift of reason could solve the problems facing society, then that society would never reach the state of hopelessness and alienation that they considered necessary to provoke socialist revolution.

Their task, therefore, was as swiftly as possible to undermine the Judaeo-Christian legacy. To do this they called for the most negative destructive criticism possible of every sphere of life which would be designed to de-stabilize society and bring down what they saw as the 'oppressive' order. Their policies, they hoped, would spread like a virus - 'continuing the work of Western Marxists by other means' as one of their members noted.

To further the advance of their 'quiet' cultural revolution ... the [Frankfurt] School recommended (among other things):

(1) the creation of racism offences,
(2) continual change to create confusion,
(3) the teaching of sex and homosexuality to children,
(4) the undermining of schools' and teachers' authority,
(5) huge immigration to destroy identity,
(6) the promotion of excessive drinking,
(7) emptying of churches,
(8) an unreliable legal system with bias against victims of crime,
(9) dependency on the state or state benefits,
(10) control and dumbing down of media,
(11) encouraging the breakdown of the family.

One of the main ideas of the Frankfurt School was to exploit Freud's idea of 'pansexualism' - the search for pleasure, the exploitation of the differences between the sexes, the overthrowing of traditional relationships between men and women. To further their aims they would:

(a) attack the authority of the father, deny the specific roles of father and mother, and wrest away from families their rights as primary educators of their children,
(b) abolish differences in the education of boys and girls,
(c) abolish all forms of male dominance - hence the presence of women in the armed forces,
(d) declare women to be an 'oppressed class' and men as 'oppressors'."


Programmes of Treason

"There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state:

  • Healthcare - Control healthcare and you control the people;

  • Poverty - Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live;

  • Debt - Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That wa6y you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty;

  • Gun Control - Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state;

  • Welfare - Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income);

  • Education - Take control of that people read and listen to - take control of what children learn in school;

  • Religion - Remove the belief in God from the Government and schools;

  • Class Warfare - Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take from (tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor" [source].
