Live with Selling the Drama.

1994. Album Throwing Copper. An album notable for several hits as well as poignant cover art by Scottish painter Peter Howson. Can't say I find it beautiful. But I acknowledge it's Art. Sort of.

Bryan Ferry with Windswept.

From the 1985 album Boys and Girls.

Slaap wel.



I believe a marriage is between a man and a woman. I sometimes have the impression I'm the only European still holding that view, but on other continents there still seem to be plenty of people with their heads screwed on right. Here's a small sample from US-based catholic organization CatholicVote:

And if you are from De Standaard, that leftist rag of which the reaction to this quintessentially decent video is a hateful sneer and more attention for a badly made parody, you can go royally fuck yourself. Or some other ass, for that matter. #Lul/Trut.



Heavy riots since about one week in the Schilderwijk, a triangle-shaped area in The Hague, The Netherlands. This predominantly muslim neighborhood, also dubbed the 'Sharia Triangle' in which last year ISIS-flags were flown at rallies, has been simmering with unrest for some time, but wat ignited the powder keg was the death of an Antillian immigrant by the name of Mitch Henriquez. One week ago, during a local festival not far from Schilderswijk, Henriquez ran amok and shouted to police that he was armed. Five officers were needed to subdue him. It is still not clear how this happened, but the man died by choking during the brush. Maybe the police are partly to blame for being somewhat hard-handed, what is clear though is that Henriquez would still be alive if he had behaved like a normal citizen - i.e. not hurling insults at police while threatening you are armed, and not fighting them as they try to put handcuffs on or whatever.

That is one thing.

The other thing is that the incident was used by antifa thugs to spark even more unrest, and the area has for several consecutive nights been in turmoil, with extensive damage being done to state-owned infrastructure, banks etc. As of July 4, some 200 rioters have been arrested:

But it is the latest development that is of most interest here, because in the name of restoring order the authorities have apparently accepted the help of muslim vigilantes in Schilderswijk. Dutch site GeenStijl reports that around 80 what it calls 'Sharia Police' acted as a buffer between Police and rioters.

This should definitely not be seen as a positive development, for it signals the ceding of authority to a parallel police force.

Several conclusions can be drawn from the whole episode:

a.) Multiculturalism is a catastrophic failure. You cannot integrate foreign groups if they radically denounce the local mores, mores which pre-multiculturalism made The Netherlands a very wealthy and safe nation. We are talking about such typical Dutch traits as labor ethic, respect for the law, their famous frugality (granted, not always a boon), the desire (sometimes obsession) to keep everything tidy and clean etc. Antillians are immigrants from the Dutch Antilles, most of them couldn't give a rat's ass about those age-old Dutch values. It is therefore no surprise that crime rates among them are the highest of all immigrant populations, higher even than among Moroccans (who are no. 2).

b.) Conflicts between immigrants and police invariable attract the attention of extreme leftist racaille hellbent on stoking the flames of unrest even higher. The merest brush with the authorities will result in the presence of antifa thugs in nothing flat, because it is one more occasion to confront the police. In their twisted worldview, order has to be disturbed, infrastructure has to be demolished. The old 'Things have to be razed down in order to make a new and better society' trope.

c.) The turmoil is exploited by muslims to assert power. Indeed, the havoc wrought by Antillian, Moroccan and antifa thugs is a godsend for the Sharia Triangle's parallel police force to "prove" their usefulness in "restoring order". The gullible idiots in The Hague's City Council, mayor Van Aartsen up front, actually see this as a positive development. In reality, it will in time lead to a 'no go zone' for the real Police.

This entire mess can be laid almost exclusively at the feet of leftism: insane open border policies, abandonment of conservative values, white guilt, socialist dogmas...

... these are the bitter fruits.

And this is only the beginning.


Tuesday, June 30, 2015


Don't expect MSM to pay much attention to this, and if they do, they will still end their columns with a sneer aimed at eminent scientist and (real) Nobel Prize Winner Sir Richard Timothy Hunt, who was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society (FRS) in 1991 and a foreign associate of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences in 1999. His Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, awarded in 2001, he shared with Leland Hartwell and Sir Paul Nurse for their discoveries regarding cell cycle regulation by cyclin and cyclin-dependent kinases.

Unless you've been living on another planet, you know that Tim Hunt's career was effectively ended by a hateful tweet in response to a so-called sexist remark, which I won't repeat here, because I cannot fathom what's so terrible about it - besides, Sir Hunt had it followed by "and now seriously".... although that too was not deemed important enough to mention by our moral betters in the media.

Well, the cunt who wrote that tweet, Connie St Louis, has now been exposed as a serial liar and a fraud who fabricated her CV out of thin CO2. Breitbart's Milo Yiannopoulos reports:

"It’s terrible that by mere accident of birth, some people are afforded benefits and opportunities that are denied to others.

That’s why I think Connie St Louis, the black female journalism professor whose malicious slander led to the virtual destruction of a Nobel Laureate’s career, needs to urgently check her privilege. Because unlike most people in the country, it seems she can get away with murder, thanks to her gender and, yes, her skin colour.

St Louis is responsible for the sacking of Sir Tim Hunt, a Nobel prize-winning biochemist who became the target of an online lynch mob after his comments about women in science were taken out of context.

St Louis claimed, and continues to claim, that Hunt had argued for single-sex laboratories after claiming that women in science were a distraction who “fall in love” with male scientists and “cry” when criticised.

St Louis, eager to combat damaging stereotypes, immediately went off crying to the media.

But a report from an anonymous EU official who attended Hunt’s talk told the Times last week that his comments were clearly made to poke fun at himself and that, after making them, Hunt went on to talk at length about the importance of women in science.

As Richard Dawkins, one of Hunt’s most prominent defenders, says, St Louis’ story made Hunt look like a chauvinist monster. But the full story shows him to be the precise opposite. What has happened to him is therefore nothing short of an international scandal.

There are elements of Rolling Stone in this debacle, not only in the way narrative has been prioritised over fact-checking, but also in the fabulism of Hunt’s accuser. Because, according to an explosive report by the Daily Mail, St Louis is a serial liar and fraud who has fabricated most of her own CV.

Her online resume describes her as an “award winning freelance broadcaster, writer, and scientist” who “presents and produces a range of programmes for BBC Radio 4 and BBC World Service” and “writes for numerous outlets, including the Independent, the Daily Mail, the Guardian and the Sunday Times.”

Yes, in today's PC tyranny, an incompetent bitch and serial liar can end an eminent scientist's career.

But, according to the Mail‘s investigation, St Louis has no bylined works in either the Mail, the Independent or the Sunday Times. Prior to the Tim Hunt affair, she had only written one article for the Guardian, in 2013.

Her CV also boasts of a Joseph Rowntree fellowship which she received to write and publish a book. But she received the fellowship in 2005, and ten years later has yet to produce a completed work.

St Louis is currently a professor of science journalism at City University — that much is true. But if I were one of her students, I’d be demanding my money back. St Louis has lied about her CV, and she has lied about Tim Hunt.

Anyone else would be fired on the spot.

But let’s face it, it ain’t gonna happen. St Louis is a black woman. A black woman in science journalism, no less. There’s no way the Guardian or the BBC would allow anything bad to happen to such a rare and valuable person. That’s probably why they aren’t planning to follow up on the Mail‘s story.

Indeed, so important is St Louis to the Guardian that the Mail reports that Guardian editors made over 30 edits to her article on their website, in which she defended her conduct. The article was not updated with a disclaimer making note of these changes, in contravention of normal Guardian policy.

There’s a word for these double standards: privilege.

Yes, contrary to what a rainbow-haired Tumblr blogger may have screamed at you over social media, it’s not white males who need to check their privilege today, but minorities in positions of influence like Connie St Louis, who seem to think they can lie about themselves and others with impunity in pursuit of some noble higher goal.

In this case, as so often, that higher goal was delivering a good kicking to a much more successful man.

You can bet your bottom dollar that if it were Sir Tim Hunt or some other villified white male who had engaged in the kind of CV-spinning that St Louis did, the BBC and the Guardian would be shouting it from the rooftops.

Evidence of this double standard is everywhere. Just look at Bahar Mustafa, the delightful “diversity officer” of Goldsmiths University who hosted events that banned white men, repeatedly said she wanted to “kill white men,” labelled people “white trash” — and then claimed she couldn’t be racist, because she’s an ethnic minority.

There’s someone who knows how to use their privilege, baby.

Mustafa still has her job, by the way. (It’s taxpayer-funded, of course.) After all, we can afford to lose scientists like Sir Tim Hunt, can’t we? He wasn’t doing anything important, just trying to cure cancer. Openly racist “diversity officers” like Mustafa though, they’re the people we can’t afford to lose.

It’s easy to laugh, but the privilege of minorities in modern Britain has real consequences. In Rotherham, the abuses of Pakistani grooming gangs were ignored for years because officials in the town were afraid of offending minorities or appearing “racist.”

Even the official report acknowledged the part played by “misplaced political correctness” in the horrific episode. But the underlying problem was not addressed.

And it won’t be. As I write, it’s Monday afternoon, and there is still no glimmer of a story on the Connie St Louis CV revelations from the BBC, Guardian, or Independent.

Why? Because these Lefty (alright, closet Lefty in the case of the BBC) news outlets have imported the bad habits of the American Left, in particular their hare-brained identity politics.

No doubt, editors at these publications believe that attacking Tim Hunt is righteously “punching up” at the privileged, whereas exposing St Louis’ wrongdoing would be “punching down” at the underprivileged. What a world."

What a world? You bet.
