Merry Christmas!


A very Merry Christmas to everyone.

Keep in mind the fact that the Son of Man, the Christ who lived and was executed by the government of His day, was a great leader, and leader of the common people. It was his great message of Love and Brotherhood which brought him to his death. He knew the poor of the earth were oppressed by the rich and wealthy, and in scathing terms denounced the money changers and all those who defiled the Temple and brought suffering to starving humanity.

George Lansbury, 1926.

Happy Christmas Neil

At this time, can I call a campaign to the attention of Neil Clark readers:

http://www.orthodox.clara.net/ardalan.htm

Our very politicians who are spoiling to bomb Iran (no doubt for ‘human rights’) would think absolutely nothing of sending a convert from Islam to Christianity to the Islamic Republic. Under Islamic law this can result in the death penalty.

I’m sure no-one will hear anything of Ardalan in the modern papers when we are celebrating the birth of Christ. The right’s foaming attacks on Iran will not extend to caring about asylum cases. The babydult liberal left will be too busy boring everyone with silly articles on how much they love the secularisation of Christmas.

Yet if we people who dislike neo-liberalism in both its nominal-left and fierce right forms can do something to help an innocent man, I think it would be a great achievement.

Many readers will not themselves be religious, but I think surely that we can agree that our nation is built on Christian values and the leftist values that have their roots in Christianity should surely extend to offering shelter for someone who has chosen to live a harmless lifestyle that his country’s rulers would punish.

Merry Christmas. The Guardiam moderators have given me the best present-being either pre-moderated or perhaps banned.

The reason seems to have been my comments on Peter Lazanby's Auschwitz thread where I emphasised that the theft was done bt crooks.

In other words, the facts were that it was not part of a Neo-Nazi plot but rather a ghoulish heist for a Nazi memoribilia collector.

I then wrote that though bad, this theft was dawarfed by Saakashvili's total demolition of the Soviet War memorial in Kutaisi.

The result is that I get moderated not once but twice.Since when my comments on anything have failed to appear or been airbrushed.

It is unbelievable that the Guardian, supposedly a liberal newspaper could resort to what is not moderation but censorship.

To moderate is to ensure comments are not merely abusive, hate ridden or liable to put the paper in legal jeopardy.

My language was polite. My tone passionately angry but restrained. This is how debate should be conducted.

My reward is to be airbrushed from a public blog forum where I thought I might be able to discuss these double standards.

Clearly,the moderators have them and I will not apologise. I want them to apologise to me for this absurd and witless censorship.

Thanks,

Karl

" It is unbelievable that the Guardian, supposedly a liberal newspaper could resort to what is not moderation but censorship."

All too believable. The Guardian is a zionist operation, pretending not to be. You committed the sin of putting another god before the Lord thy God - the Holocaust, peace be upon him. That last phrase is what got ME banned from CIF.

Merry Christmas, Neil, and keep up the good work.

Karl, forget CiF. As Jock says, it's a loaded dice.

The lberals are scared of us, this little group of oddballs (speak for yourself, I hear you say!) who stay in touch because we understand the power and the necessity of the collective. We see different roots - the organic anthropological tradition, the mass, the new society - which means we show fidelity to different truth-events, but it is the ability to have fidelity to anything at all that terrifies the liberals. They cannot tolerate a solid subjectivity committed to a truth-event and a collective truth-project. Zionists, corporate capitalists and their political minions use liberalism because of its bogus yet active and very effective ethos of tolerance and sympathy to those who have suffered the greatest Evil (J.S. Mill - thou shalt not use thy freedom to harm others, harm ranked by Bentham's felicific calculus, the greatest Evil to the greatest number) ... and the bastards know just how far they can push their own Evil to fall just short.

We must wait for the political truth-event yet to come, something to which we can all show fidelity.

Perhaps the next time the Lord Rothschilds Guardian newspaper brings up the Ukrainian “engineered” famine which was revealed at the time as Nazi propaganda and William Randolph Hearst US media publisher who had documented connections to the Nazis then later with Harvest of Despair documentary and Harvest of Sorrow by Robert Conquest who the British Foreign office and CIA anti-communist propaganda department used footage from the 20-21 Volga famine.

“According to a 1978 article in The Guardian of London, Robert Conquest got his big break shortly after World War II, when he joined the Information Research Department of the British Foreign Office. Staffed heavily by émigrés, the IRD's mission was a covert "propaganda counter-offensive" against the Soviet Union. It was heady, hands-on work for a young writer, a chance to slant media coverage of Russia by adding political "spin" to Eastern bloc press releases and funneling them to top reporters. The journalists knew little about the IRD, beyond the names of their mysterious contacts. The public knew nothing at all, even as their opinions were being sculpted.”

When it was revised during the 80's with support from the like of CIA man William Buckley and the AEI with funding and sponsorship Nazi affiliated Nationalist terrorists groups in the Ukraine émigré’s in US and Canada who funded the well documented debunked Harvest of Despair documentary and Harvest of Sorrows book .

The Guardian newspaper is owned by the largest and most powerful banking family in the world who made there fortune financing the British Empire who through various frontmen around the world Cecil Roads in Africa and ownership of the likes of De Beers mining in South Africa, Soros in Serbia, Kosovo, Ukraine and Georgia and everywhere else there is a coloured revolution, formerly Khoderkovsky and Yukos in Russia, etc. Not to mention there domination and control of international monetary and banking systems like the IMF and the World Bank.

If it is left it is of the Trotskyite variety like that of Soros or the Marx brothers Christpoher and Peter “conservative” Hitchens.

You have to have a blog on Saakshvili's destruction of the Kutaisi Glory Monument on December 19th 2009.

This repellent act of barbarism and the total silence in the Western media, with one token mention in the BBC and Reuters about it needs to be broken.

I've dealt with it extensively on my blog, as well as dealing with the smears of anti-semtism that have invariably come my way in contrasting the media coverage given to the Auschwitz theft ( as bad as that vandalism was ) and the total destruction of a monument commemorating those who fough, struggled and died in defeating Nazi Germany is not considered news.

Which is odd because when the Tories get into bed with Kaminski who made anti-semitic dog whistles to gain votes, the foreign secretary David Miliband was denouncing it.

Yet because Georgia is a strategic ally in the global Great Game for the resources of Eurasia, this wanton act of state vandalism, this erasing and rewriting of history in true Soviet style officially never happened in the Western media.

Maybe with your influence anf status as a professional journalist you could bring it up right in front of the eyes of the Western readership, showing the double standards involved.

A drunk urinates on a war memorial in the UK and the British media are outraged. Saakashvili blows a war monument when the USSR was on the Allied side to smithereens to celebrate his birthday and not a peep.

Pathetic.

I have a new blog as well about the need to fight the rapacious property developers who are ruining Krakow whilst turning the centre into an overpriced theme park.

And Edward Lucas of "The New Cold War" has shown up on EEW to deny that he has attempted to make Khodorkovsky a martyr to democracy and the rule of law.
