    [Use proper names please – PG] pondering whether to follow trump on the great terrorist turkey shoot in Afganistan.After fighting for 17 years im sure the terrorist/freedom fighters are shaking in their sandals.

  2. Seriously what is this?

    Type in “American Inventors” to Google. Seriously, I can assure you this is what you’ll get.

    Who knew that 10 of the top 12 would be black with Thomas Edison in 6th place and Alexander Graham Bell in 9th place, with ten black inventors rounding out the top dozen.

    American Scientists is not too dissimilar

      Great stuff…didn’t see a chap called Carver mentioned. If I remember correctly, he was a famous engineer who outlayed Washington’s infrastructure.

      So, why is there affirmative action? Someone needs to tell blacks to get off their lazy whiny backsides and stop blaming whitey. Yeah, sure, you they MAY face more racism than most. Such is life. It didn’t stop these bros.

    Mikey tees off on NZ First. Even spouts some righteous right humour.

    Here’s a clip of refugees being removed from a church. Notice the general all round nastiness and attitude of these Muslims. These people shouldn’t be in the West, in my opinion. We have enough of our own ferals to contend with without this added burden.

    • What was the background story. Are they overstayers being sheltered?

        I took my lead from the heading. My guess, uninvited over stayers who believed a church was sanctuary from authorities. When asked to leave, they MAY have cut up rough.

        Meanwhile Poland’s hardline on refugees could see them in trouble with the EU. They need to follow Britain and leave these liberal twats behind.

        This chap, Poland’s Interior minister Mariusz Blaszczak, needs a medal for stating common sense..but more importantly- the truth.

          The ones throwing the punches were the police. Yes, the ones being dragged away were resisting it as anyone would.

          This film proves nothing without a translation. We have no idea of what the story is or whether these people were even Muslim.

          It is singularly unintelligent to assume that millions of people who are of many races are clones.

            It needs to be said: That’s a pathetic response.

            ”The ones throwing the punches were the police.”

            What punches? A push/tap would be more accurate.

            ”Yes, the ones being dragged away were resisting it as anyone would.”

            That’s an Opinion.

            ”This film proves nothing without a translation. We have no idea of what the story is or whether these people were even Muslim.”

            Sometimes you have to take things on trust. Look at the heading. Plus, they look and are acting like many refugees who ploughed through Western countries. Its a reasonable assumption.

            ”It is singularly unintelligent to assume that millions of people who are of many races are clones.”

            No, its not. Millions upon millions of Muslims want to kill us.

            What is singularly unintelligent is your attitude to Islam.

            People like you don’t heed warnings

              A blow with a clenched fist is a punch.

              If millons upon millions of Muslims wanted to kill us, they would have done so long ago.

              Surely you don’t believe everything you see on You Tube.You can’t understand a word of what’s being said here, so have no real idea of what’s going on.

              We don’t live in Manchester.

              To generalise is to be an idiot.

              There were twoyoung Iraqi asylum seekers being sheltered by a church-everyone in the church was a church member except the two young men. The vicar has said that they would do it again.

              The people you accuse of being feral etc would appear to be Icelandic, not Muslim.

              Look up the background to the story.

              ‘The people you accuse of being feral etc would appear to be Icelandic, not Muslim.’

              Sorry, you are talking nonsense. Where did I call them ferals?

              ”If millions upon millions of Muslims wanted to kill us, they would have done so long ago.”

              Please.

              ”A blow with a clenched fist is a punch. ”

              Give me the time stamp where this unequivocal punch takes place.

              ”Look up the background to the story.”

              Where?

  5. “Antifa and those who engage in black bloc tactics stand as antithetical to the sorts of liberal and progressive values once held in such high esteem by the political left. Whereas liberalism once prided itself on intellect and debate as its most powerful weapons in the fight against conservatism, fascism or other right-wing variants, the violence and destruction that Antifa have brought to the table – along with the mainstream left’s tacit if not outright support for such actions – marks a devolution in the philosophy of the left, and a failure to adequately maintain a grip on its principles.”

    I found this interesting. Its part of a “letter” from OCCUPY to the American Left.

    “Progressive activism has thus moved, by virtue of its failure or refusal to police bad actions, from the principles of Henry Wallace to those of Stalin or Trotsky. Should this seem hyperbolic as a statement or declaration, one need only look at the philosophical and ideological inspirations to so many Antifa or Anarcho-communist activists. Awash in 20th century Marxist doctrine, the presence of Antifa, and the left’s tolerance of them within their ranks, stands as a rejection of the civil enlightenment values liberals and progressives once stood for, and a slow embrace of the authoritarian orthodoxy which throughout the 20th century so often gave the left its bad name to begin with.”
