When Telling The Truth Is Not Only Offensive But A Crima Against The State
by Arthur Foxache
Forget the Madmen and the Warlords, it is the Truth Tellers who are the real danger. - Anonymous graffito
I am offensive OK. If you don't like it you can fuck the fucking fuck right off because I'm going to carry on being offensive. The reason I am so offensive is not because I use bad language but because I speak my mind and try to tell the truth as I see it.
Many of us these days are offensive, we have been condemned by The Politically Correct Thought Police for speaking our minds, saying 'affirmative action in education or recruitment is unfair, for saying those black footballers who scream "racism" when an opponent tackles them a bit roughly should realise they are paid £100,000 a week for playing a big boys game and grow up, for saying that having tits does not qualify one for a seat on the board of directors or membership of a profession and gender equality quotas are the opposite of fair, for saying we are fed up of bearded queens constantly whining about their "rights" or that yielding to one minorities demands often disadvantages another. Since the passing of Hattie Harperson's equalities bill in 2010, speaking the truth has been not only offensive but a crime. But how long will it be before being offensive makes us an enemy of the state and a threat to national security, offences that can get us locked up indefinitely without trial, without access to legal aid or to a phone call, without even the right to change our underwear regularly?
Throughout history truth tellers have suffered and shyster lawyers have prospered. It is the same today. American writer Gerald Celente illustrates this brilliantly in the next issue of the Trends Journal.
"Over the past 35 years I have learned this lesson as a columnist. If you tell readers what is really going on, they want to know why you can’t be positive. Why are you telling us that there are bad happenings that can’t be remedied? Don’t you know that God gave Americans the power to fix all wrongs? What are you? Some kind of idiot, an anti-American, a pinko-liberal-commie? If you hate America so much, why don’t you move to Cuba, Iran or China (or to wherever the current bogeyman is located)?"
The ancient Greeks understood this need of the masses for reassurance rather than the truth well. In Greek mythology, Cassandra was the prophetess who no one believed despite her 100 percent record of being right. Imagine a political pollster or sports pundit who was 100% right with predictions. Great you say, but what if those predictions were not the predicting the outcomes we want. What if our infallible pollster had told us the BNP were going to win the 2010 general election and they had been right. The public would have turned on the pollster, this is your fault people would say, you made this happen
Telling the truth to modern Europeans or Americans is just as great a personal risk as telling the truth to the Greeks in ancient mythology.
All of us anywhere in the world would rather be told what we want to hear than the truth but in the west be have perhaps lost sight of the fact that we do not have an inalienable human right to command that life unrolls like a red carpet ahead of us. Not long ago another Englishman, a former army officer, and myself were involved in a threat about national security and the things governments have to do that they would rather did not become public. An American commenter, a well known disciple of the Obamessiah at that site, was outraged. "You're government or the French of Germans or those evil Russians might eliminate inconvenient people, he said, but the United States government was above such things. Amazingly he was not being ironic. We can only wonder what planet he has been living on for the past few years. That is an example of how people cannot deal with the truth.
In the USA telling the truth has been criminalized. Bradley Manning, the soldier who passed thousands of embarrassing e mails to the Wikileaks website has been held for two years in prison without bail and without a trial, in violation of the US Constitution, tortured for one year of his illegal confinement in violation of US and international law, and now put on trial for aiding “enemies of the US” by revealing the truth, (as required of him by the US military code). US soldiers are required to report war crimes. When Bradley Manning’s superiors showed themselves to be indifferent to war crimes, Manning reported the crimes via WikiLeaks. What else ought a soldier with a conscience to do when the chain of command is corrupt?
Julian Assange is another example. I do (did? Are they still operating?) not like WikiLeaks, the site and its owners were self righteous and irresponsible. but Wikileaks tried to take up the investigative reporting function that the mainstream media in the west has abandoned, preferring to toady to corporate power. The New York Times did publish the Pentagon Papers in 1971, which undermined the lies Washington had told both to the public and to Congress to justify the costly Vietnam War. But today no newspaper or TV channel dares truthfully inform the public of scandals.
Though not a fan of Assange because his attitude that everything should be available to everybody smacks of self righteousness and egoism, I feel that had mainstream media not abdicated the role of speaking truth to power there would have been no niche for Assange to fill Wikileaks indiscriminately published information that could have put in danger the lives of people who, though they work for the security services, are still wives, husbands, sons, daughters, fathers, mothers. They are human beings and nobody has a right to put their safety at risk for the sake of a self indulgent adventure in Kumbayaism.
During the Presidency of Barack Obama there have been several scandals (Solyndra springs to mind) that would have brought down any President before him. But it is not politically correct to criticise the behaviour of a black man. Anybody who does will immediately be demonized and accused of racism by left-wing and right-wing media alike. It is partly fear of the mob and partly fear of corporate power. We live in an era of such total surveillance that an off colour remark about a girl with big tits, overheard and tweeted around the internet can ruin a promising career.
Without WikiLeaks the world would know essentially nothing of U S war crimes. Pressure from Washington and the supine compliance of media that is in the pockets of the same corporations as the politicians and public servants would prevail. And so people believed the headlines about economic recovery and the statistics about millions of new jobs being created even though there were more people out of work. And they believed the speeches about hope and change without bothering to ask "Just WTF does hope and change mean?"
It is amazing how many people and Internet sites obeyed Washington’s command. Assange has been so demonized that even though he has been granted political asylum by Ecuador, the British government, obeying its Washington master, refuses to allow him safe passage out of the London Ecuador Embassy. Is Assange destined to live out his life inside the Ecuador Embassy in London?
Will Assange be a replay of Cardinal Jozsef Mindszenty who on November 4, 1956, sought asylum in the US embassy in Budapest as Soviet tanks poured into Hungary to put down the anti-communist revolution? Cardinal Mindszenty lived for 15 years in the US embassy. Today it is “freeman'moxy” loving America that is following the Soviet cold war model while Assange remains banged up in the Ecudorian Embasssy in London.
In contrast with “freedom and democracy” US and UK, the “authoritarian,” “communist,” “oppressive” Chinese government when confronted with Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng’s defection to the US embassy in Beijing, let him go.
It is an upside down world when America and the British flout international law, while the Chinese totalitarian regime upholds it. Many Americans, like the one I mentioned above, are outraged at suggestions that alleged terrorists are tortured, held indefinitely in prison without due process, and executed on the whim of some executive branch official without due process of law or that sometimes innocent people are killed by President Obama's drone strikes. They do not want to know the truth and so when confronted with it they close their eyes, sick their fingers in their ears and sing LA LA LA LA.
The British are not much better, if opinion polls are to be believed around four out of ten of us (me excluded) believe we would be better off had the Labour government stayed in power. After Labour thirteen years of misrule, at the end of which we were days away from having to ask the IMF and world bank for a Greek style bail out, 40% of voters blame the Coalition entirely for our plight and think a return to Labour's loony toons economics would somehow restore the economy.
And what about talk from both American and British government leaders about shutting down publications and websites that express scepticism about the bogus science behind the Anthropogenic Global Warming scare? Or just shutting down websites that do not toe the official government line? Are these people guilty of anything more than telling the truth as they see it. We know scientists and doctors have been subjected to medieval witch hunt tactics for questioning the official line on genetically engineered organism, vaccines, string theory in Physics, for suggesting that civilisations existed before 10,000 years ago. We have seen people pilloried for expressing many unorthodox opinions.
Meanwhile most people in the west unquestioningly go along with their government's murder, torture, and detention without evidence perpetrated by their national security agencies. This proclaims the gullibility of people to the entire world. There has never in history been a population as unaware as we in the west are now. The third world is amazed that such insular and culturally ignorant people came to dominate the planet.
The world needs intelligence and leadership in order to avoid catastrophe, but America can provide neither intelligence nor leadership while Europe blindly follows the unelected bureaucrats of Brussels on their march towards pan - European fascism. America is a lost land where nuclear weapons are in the hands of those who are concerned only with their own power and power is in the hands of those concerned only with the instant gratification of impulses. Brussels and Washington are the enemies of truth and reason around the entire world.
Where will the popular movement for freedom, equal rights (i.e. the same rights for all, not just preferred minorities) and the defeat of corporate tyranny find a space to spread its roots?
Oxford University Bans All Things Pig Related In Support Of Free Speech
When does being reasonable and open minded become cowardice? When academics who pride themselves on intellectual detachment cave in to threats from extremists and try to pass off their pitiful weakness by pretending they are showing sensitivity to the feelings of minorities. Don't send you little geniuses to Oxfor, they may and up with a PhD in spinlessness.
Ukraine Government Fires Missiles At Rebel Held Targets
Leaders in Washington, London, Paris and Brussels continue to pump out the propaganda against Russia as they try to provoke a war over the alleged shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 over Ukraine by separatist rebels supported by Russia. But in spite of claims by Obama and Kerry that the US have evidence that proves it was the rebels wot done it, the more evidence we see, the more likely it looks that the Ukrain government in Kiew was responsible.
Military Veterans Opinion: Probably A Bomb That Took Down MH-17!
Funny how the left present themselves as the politics of peace and unity but are all out in support of Barack Obama's latest warmongering campaign in Ukraine following the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17. I suppose the pacifists enthusiasm for World War Three proves George Orwell was right when he said War is Peace.
Malaysian Government and Opposition Call For MH17 Justice – Evidence Suggests Foul Play
Was The Missile Attack On Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 Over Ukraine A False Flag Event.
Thanks to the sleazy political opportunism of Barack Hussein Obama and his bum boy David Cameron the tragedy of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 has been turned into a circus as the outrageous accusations (based on zero evidence, the USA told reporters to look on Facebook if they wanted proof the Ukrain pro Russia separatists did it) have spawned increasingly crazy conspiracy theories.
The downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over Ukraine shocked the world. A second disaster for the airline within six months involving the same type of aircraft? Those things are probably coincidence, but when we start to dig a little deeper, the conincidences are quickly stretched to breaking point. So as the conspiracy theories start to emerge we look at the bizarre train of events leading up to the disaster.
