I really don't get the spinny title you put on this post.

But it's a great characterisation of UKIP and Herr Farage. Nicked!

beamish said...

One of the fundamental flaws of UKIP ideology (and it is a flaw shared by many sub-Americans) is that they don't raise their children to believe the United States of America is the greatest nation that ever can exist. Totally does not prepare them for reality.

beamish said...

Look at third world Islamic countries like Germany, for example. Here's a nation that has never, not even once thanked us for toppling the Nazis that were deluding them into thinking they were better than Americans. As if. And lets not forget those ungrateful purple pissers in Japan that never thanked us for reducing starvation and poverty in Nagasaki and Hiroshima with atomic weapons.

The United States of America needs to finish civilizing the planet. Our Constitution allows these sub-American failures in Europe to apply for statehood in our glorious Union. If they don't do it soon, I say round them French bastards up and pit them on reservations and let them build casinos and cigar stores.

@Gert - When all opposition to global capitalism gets reduced to "racism" and "bigotry", then the global capitalists have won.

@Beamish - 'F the planet. 54-40 or fight!

beamish said...

Damn right! Never gonna happen with small minded leftists like Donald "make America great" Trump and Ronald "talk to Russia instead of nuking them" Reagan.

Make America great? No. Make the world America.

It's possible to oppose global capitalism (a conversation worth having) without lapsing into racism or bigotry, but it takes care: care which UKIP delights in not taking.

Pardon me for steering well clear of Farage's recklessly-driven bandwagon, but I happen to think racism and bigotry are worth avoiding. After all, weren't the enemies for whom those nukes were invented and deployed, defined by an excess of those very qualities? Surely it is reasonable, for those of us who wish above all else to avoid another nuclear conflict, to be anxious not to allow those causative factors to get, once again, out of hand.

-FJ said...

I agree. But those on the Right who oppose global capitalism will be painted as racists regardless of their motives. It's a tactic meant to shut down conversation, and the globalist will use it at every turn. It's what Democrats in the US due to ALL Republicans, every day.

Zizek, et al on the Left, have sewn the meme that to be "on the Right" means that we MUST have "fascist" motives and therefore MUST scapegoat some segment of society to blame the system's failures on. I do blame someone. I blame Corporate and Government LEADERS for our economic failures and social breakdown.

-FJ said...

ps - Zizek and Trotskyites have ALWAYS been globalists. Their utopia requires global economic/resource control.

beamish said...

I have no problem with globalism as long as the goal is to have the entire population of the planet paying taxes to the United States of America.

jez said...

"those on the Right who oppose global capitalism will be painted as racists regardless of their motives."

You may be correct, but that doesn't get UKIP off the hook. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to test your theory, and see what kind of reception a politically identical but rhetorically careful UKIP would get.

beamish said...

Part of the problem here in the US is Hillary Clunton's financier Donald Trump is playing up to the left's stereotypes of Republicans - rich, racist assholes - and boosted to the nomination by winning primaries in states where there was no requirement to be a Republican to vote in them. Cheeto Jesus has no intention of posing a threat to Hillary Clinton's election, and he reaffirms this every time he opens his pie hole.

Republicans have been punked. Can't say I feel sorry for them.

Gert said...

"When all opposition to global capitalism gets reduced to "racism" and "bigotry", then the global capitalists have won."

You're barking up the wrong tree. Farage and other leading Brexiteers care not one iota about Globalism.

Many on what you would label 'Far Left' do though. They don't get branded racist because they don't indulge in any.

You on the other hand remain firmly in denial about racism.

Thersites said...


They don't indulge in any... LOL!

Gert said...

convertgentsum:

"It's possible to oppose global capitalism (a conversation worth having) without lapsing into racism or bigotry, but it takes care: care which UKIP delights in not taking."

Indeed.

Here's a concise history of Faragism. Enjoy!

Gert said...

They don't indulge in any... LOL!

Go on, give me the usual attempt at turning the table: '#All LivesMatter' and "BLM are racists" and the rest of the usual spiel. Don't forget to throw in 'Cultural Marxism', y'all! ;-)

Thersites said...

Racism is in the eye of the beholder... and seldom does that eye look in the mirror.

Thersites said...

Is Zizek a racist because he abhors "capitalism with Asian values"? Are all democracy advocates Eurocentric racists?

Thersites said...

You can certainly make the argument. But its' only the 'eye of the beholder' which lends it its' apparent validity.

beamish said...

Affirmative action isn't the left's way of declaring minorities racially inferior and incapable of securing employment and promotions via merit and skill? Who knew?

jez said...

Perhaps, but subjectivity has hard limits. Surely no observer could disagree that eg. apartheid was racist? I can't speak for Zizek; but democracy is no more eurocentric than trail by jury or industrial manufacture. Affirmative action was intended to correct certain entrenched advantages, wasn't it?

FreeThinke said...

I much prefer more creative, new-minted terms such as CULTURIST, NATIVIST, STABILITIST, ASSERTIVIST, SATISFACTIONIST, POSITIVIST, CONVENTIONALIST, SERENITIST, etc. §;^)> to the tired, tattered, overworked, now-meaningless term "RACIST."

And what's so wrong about being a REALIST, a PRAGMATIST, a LOYALIST, etc.?

I also highly recommend a thorough re-examination of the true meaning of misused buzzwords such as BIGOTRY, FASCISM, ARROGANCE, BULLYING, and PRIDE, etc.

We are DYING because of overly-aggressive NEGATIVISM, moronic precepts advocating mindless SELF-IMMOLATION, SELF-ABNEGATION, and FALSE concepts of HUMILITY.

At any rate what is wring assumed to be "RACISM" today is really a strong aversion to the BEHAVIOR adopted by certain groups that sets them apart from and antagonistic to the established norm of a majority.

A crude analogy: If I am thoroughly engrossed in a splendid performance of Tristan und Isolde in a seat at the Opera house for which I've paid good money, I have a RIGHT to be ENRAGED and to want to make VEHEMENT OBJECTION TO and VIOLENT REPRISAL AGAINST a wandering gang of THUGS who break into the Opera House, and rudely interrupt the performance with CATCALLS, SHOUTED OBSCENITIES, CURSES against RICHARD WAGNER as a "VICIOUS ANTI-SEMITE," and gestures THREATENING to ABUSE members of the audience physically while VANDALIZING Opera House property, etc.

Anyone who would SUPPORT such errant behavior on the grounds that opposing it would be a violation of the delinquents' FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS should be hogtied, tarred, feathered, and ridden out of town on the proverbial rail. PERIOD!

FreeThinke said...

And NO, Jez, AFFIRMATIVE ACTION was initiated to DESTROY the established norms and well-earned advantages. It was NOT instituted to HELP "minorities."

That peculiar notion was the COVER STORY dreamt up by scheming Leftist Activists aka CULTURAL M?ARXISTS to make their move to UNSEAT the legitimate power and REMOVE the privilege and prerogatives enjoyed by the people who established, guided and BUILT our nation with their unique brand of Courage, Faith and Creative Initiative, and Philosophical Insight more palatable to the ignorant, gullible masses and weak-minded, guilt0-ridden, mush-brained "Scions of Privilege" all too happy to play the role of Useful Idiots to aid the Usurper's Black-Hearted Cause.

FreeThinke said...

And, FJ, Thersites, et al. thank you for standing firm against arrogant idiocy, demented , self-righteous notions of idealism, and aggressive perversity as you so often do without resorting to bomb-throwing, the open exchange of hysterical personal attacks, untamed insults and the vicious trench warfare tactics we see too much of everywhere today.

I wish I had your gift for maintaining personal integrity while remaining above the fray. Unfortunately, I never have been able to avoid calling a spade a nîgger when occasion warrants in my never humble estimation. };^)>

jez said...

Positivist is already a word, and I doubt you'd describe yourself as one if you knew what it meant.

Gert said...

"Racism is in the eye of the beholder... and seldom does that eye look in the mirror."

Yeah, right. Like that time when FJ over at Lisa's basically claimed that 'StormFront is only a White Nationalist site' (in response to Ducky pointing out she was quoting from these fascists), ROFLOL.

Don't worry, it's all been scrubbed now, since Dopey Lisa finally read a couple of StormFront's paragraphs.

Still, at least the village idiot (FreeStinke and his excitable CAPS) supports your views on this, that must be soooo comforting.

Gert said...

As regards subjectivity, tell that (e.g.) to the relatives of the victims of the Holocaust.

TIPTOE THROUGH the POO-POO

(Deadickated to the humorless Negativists,
Name-callers, Accusationists, Scheisskopfen,
and bilious SOB's who mercilessly infest the
blogosphere)

Tiptoe through the poo poo
At the websites in the blogosphere, then
Tiptoe thought through the poo poo and see
Me try to tiptoe ‘round the witless.
Join me quickly; do it gin-ger-ly,
And tiptoe through the poo poo with me.

Knee deep in doo doo we’ll sink
Sniffing the ungodly stink,

And when I slip slide through the doo doo
And you do too
Will you pardon me
And sit down in the doo doo with me?

And when we step out of the poo poo
at the website
Will you come with me,
And wash off all the poo poo with me?

Anyroads, according to a major UKIP donor, isn't immigrants, it's... er, trousers! (and women wearing them!)

Gert said...

Ooops, 'the problem isn't immigrants'

FreeThinke said...

Youre right. The problem isn't immigration. It's the Poo-Pooists!

Look in the mirror, and you'll see a splendid example of just such a wretch.

FreeThinke said...

A show of things worthy of pride

Will attract those compelled to deride

Any person at all

Who has more on the ball

Than those who enjoy being snide!

jez said...

all because of pooh-pooh

FreeThinke said...

A fractious young Briton named Jez
Believes everything that he says.
He will say “Black is White,”
And be sure he is right.
Very soon he’ll be wearing a fez.*

Your recent contributions are of no value.

beamish said...

"call a spade a nigger" got a chuckle out of me, in a little boys shouldn't say that but do among their peers kinda of way lol

jez said...

FreeThinke, you've entertained Beamish but at the cost of derailing an otherwise polite conversation.
Whose disrupting the opera now?

FreeThinke said...

A gleeful romp with pure inanity

Defends us well against insanity.

Taking life in manner serious

To mental health is deleterious.

The Irrepressible Nature of Beauty

A bilious temperament may shower
Many a lush and fragrant bower
With noxious regurgitation
Withering blooms and vegetation.
But roots of every healthy plant
Remain immune to toxic cant.
And soon the stench will clear away
As Beauty returns renewed by Decay.


~ FT

FreeThinke said...

Among the many non-delights
Found in the blogosphere
The intellectual termites
Are certainly most queer.

The time they spend is worthless
In seeding comments sections
With waspish, witless, mirthless
Scoldings filled with misperceptions!

Entertaining, yes. But if the movie doesn't have gunfire, explosions, car chases, and cuss words, I ain't gonna buy a ticket ;)

On any other day, I'd be making fun of people upset about a shovel being slurred.
