Amusing. Liberal Avenger noted my demonstration of his hypocrisy of two days ago but was completely unable to defend his stance. All he could manage was some ad hominem abuse. He said I must be "lonely". How typically Leftist! Abuse in lieu of rational argument. The emails I get from Leftists are dominated by abuse too. See LEFTISTS AS ELITISTS for the latest example.

Nepalling BBC ethics: "British Broadcasting Corporation's coverage of the recent developments in Nepal raises questions about ethics.... The anchor mentioned its Nepal stringer, Netra KC, by name. He also mentioned the fact that since telephone lines were disconnected in Nepal, KC was nipping across the border into India and making calls from there. Soon after that, there were unconfirmed reports that Netra KC had either gone into hiding or was missing. Today, an official intimation came from the International Federation of Journalists who issued a statement saying the president and general secretary of the Federation of Nepalese Journalists had been arrested. It further added that BBC representative Netra KC had also "disappeared" after being called to the army barracks in Nepalgunj. "The IFJ is calling for the international community to support our courageous Nepalese colleagues," the statement said. But if the report about KC is true, it raises questions about the BBC's ethics in disclosing the name and mode of operation of its representative in a country where emergency has been imposed and press freedom curtailed.

Farm sanity good for U.S., good for Oz: "Australian farmers could reap big dividends from the Bush administration's "monumental" decision to slash US farm subsidies in an effort to reduce Washington's budget deficit, Trade Minister Mark Vaile predicted last night. Deep cuts in US farm and commodity programs were expected in the new Bush administration budget, limiting subsidies to individual farmers that can run up to $US2 million ($2.588 million) a year to just $US250,000 in some cases. Mr Vaile last night hailed the proposal as a significant breakthrough for Australian farmers, but warned it would face strong resistance from the US farm lobby. "This is a very positive signal that the Bush administration is going to bite the bullet and go ahead with a reduction of farm subsidies," he told The Australian".

The pathetic Dutch: "In the Netherlands the national flag is now banned on most schools. If a student wears the national flag of his own country he will be suspended or expelled from school. The reason for this is that this provokes the immigrants (the muslims) and therefore it is considered discrimination if you wear your country's flag in your own country. Even people who have an bumpersticker whit the flag on their car are harassed and called a facist by the Muslims. Most schools also ban certain clothing like the Lonsdale brand and combat boots with white or red laces. This is also concidered a sign of racism. There are of course no restrictions for the immigrants on clothing."

This article by Mathias Dapfner, Chief of the huge German publisher, Axel Springer, shows that some Germans do get it. It is titled: "Europe, thy name is cowardice". Excerpt: "Appeasement generates a mentality that allows Europe to ignore nearly 500,000 victims of Saddam's torture and murder machinery and, motivated by the self-righteousness of the peace-movement, has the gall to issue bad grades to George Bush. Even as it is uncovered that the loudest critics of the American action in Iraq made illicit billions, no, TENS of billions, in the corrupt U.N. Oil-for-Food program. And now we are faced with a particularly grotesque form of appeasement... How is Germany reacting to the escalating violence by Islamic fundamentalists in Holland and elsewhere? By suggesting that we really should have a "Muslim Holiday" in Germany.....These days, Europe reminds me of an old woman who, with shaking hands, frantically hides her last pieces of jewelry when she notices a robber breaking into a neighbor's house"

My latest posting on MarxWords notes that Marx was paranoid about both Jews and Jesuits. My latest posting on "A scripture blog" looks at arguments that Jesus was conservative.



That power only, not principles, is what matters to Leftists is perfectly shown by the 2004 Kerry campaign. They put up a man whose policies seemed to be 99% the same as George Bush's even though the Left have previously disagreed violently with those policies. "Whatever it takes" is their rule.

Leftists are phonies. For most of them all that they want is to sound good. They don't care about doing good. That's why they do so much harm. They don't really care what the results of their policies are as long as they are seen as having good intentions.

The Big Lie of the late 20th century was that Nazism was Rightist. It was in fact typical of the Leftism of its day. It was only to the Right of Stalin's Communism. The very word "Nazi" is a German abbreviation for "National Socialist"
