Israeli Nationalist/Hamas Mutual Divestment Plan Goes Surprisingly Harmoniously   

Israeli Nationalist/Hamas Mutual Divestment Plan Goes Surprisingly Harmoniously  

Various centre-right and far-right nationalist parties in Israel, including Eretz Yisrael Shelanu and Yisrael Beiteinu, have decided to respond to the controversial BDS movement by coming up with a divestment project of their own.

From now on, no member of any Israeli party with pronounced nationalistic leanings is permitted to give donations to Hamas, attend Hamas fundraising events, or send their children on educational exchanges to terrorist training camps. Continue Reading

Ode to the Wide Stance Republicans  (Your Love is Wide)

Ode to the Wide Stance Republicans  (Your Love is Wide)

My stance is wide

My love is deep

True Christian men

Don’t judge lost sheep!

I was only on my winding way

I pitched my tent in a valley gay

I didn’t mean to cause dismay

My enemies lied upon me, while I lay

They grasped my buckler Continue Reading

Interview: Katie Hopkins Educates Me on ‘Disrespectful Behaviour’

Interview: Katie Hopkins Educates Me on ‘Disrespectful Behaviour’

Some time ago, I posted on my Wallace Runnymede blog the following piece:

London’s Drone-Happy Cockroach Caucus Loses Its Shit (But not its Bullshit)

The “Foreign Office” in London (formerly known as Airstrip One’s Ministry for Eternal War) has recently moralistically condemned the Russian government which (according to the IntCom/ComHum party line), has “no justification” (sic) for deciding who can or cannot enter the country.

Nick Clegg can’t enter Russia? It’s political correctness gone mad, innit! It weren’t like that in the old days, mate. Continue Reading

Saving them from Themselves… What, you think They’re Animals or What?!

Saving them from Themselves… What, you think They’re Animals or What?!

Could it be that anti-foxhunting ideologues are the interspecies equivalent of Amnesty International and IntCom? Are they complacently presenting themselves as ‘speaking up for those who don’t have a voice?’ ;) The lessons of Gayatri Spivak’s essay ‘Can the Subaltern Speak?’ are lost on them.

Animals cannot speak for themselves; but even if they could, would their self-appointed defenders allow them to speak anyway? Continue Reading

Bono: ‘Concert in Syria? Over My Dead Body, Lad!’

Bono: ‘Concert in Syria? Over My Dead Body, Lad!’

For some time now, people have been wondering whether Bono will be jetting off to Syria and Iraq, in order to single-handedly deliver the beleaguered citizens of these countries from the perils of war.

But he’s not having it!

C’mon lad! Just give us some bloody innovation, would ya? Not going to perform nothing in Syria, so I’m not.

Sure who cares about all this here about embattled autocratic leaders and beleaguered states struggling to find a common life amid the turmoil of age-old religious conflict? Sure if I wanted any of that there, I could just take a quick hike up North! Continue Reading

Republican Godwin’s Law Bingo

Republican Godwin’s Law Bingo

I: Hitler had a single-payer healthcare system.

II: Hitler persecuted innocent, well-meaning wealth creators, made them produce his bombs. Socialist welfare advocates want to do the same!

III: Hitler used the decadent liberal media to prop up and promote his evil agenda of Big Medicine and mass murder.

IV: Hitler was a ‘National Socialist.’ The enemies of Our Glorious Nation are ‘Isolationist Socialists.’ See the connection?

V. Just like every damn Democrat who has ever had the grave misfortune of tragically encumbering the earth, and entirely unlike every single Republican in history, Hitler was the sworn foe of all political transparency and accountability. Continue Reading

Inclusion Humor (II): ‘Hey, Can I Celebrate Your Diversity?’ Uh, no… Please Don’t!

Inclusion Humor (II): ‘Hey, Can I Celebrate Your Diversity?’ Uh, no… Please Don’t!

There is a ‘text’ and a ‘subtext’ so ubiquitous now, I feel it would be very unhelpful to attribute it to any one person. I do not wish to blame any one individual, or any number of individuals; clearly, the problem is a very ‘deep’ and ‘structural’ one, rather than being a question of a few people holding a niche view.

The prevailing notion is:

Neurodiversity is great and should be celebrated; what a dull world it would be, if there were no neurodiversity.

OK. How about these ones: Continue Reading

Inclusion Humor (I): The  Complexity of Accessibility

Inclusion Humor (I): The Complexity of Accessibility

Accessibility is a very current topic, but not all framings of accessibility are alike. Spot the difference:

University admissions

A

We must have 50% of young people attending university, to make us viable competitors on the world stage, and set our stamp on world affairs as leading enlightened, dynamic and creative figures in the international community.

B

Artificial barriers to university cause many problems. People feel discouraged, alienated and disenfranchised. For individuals from many communities, there is a knock-on effect on equality and access to other resources.

Gender balance in academic disciplines Continue Reading

Better to be a Coppersmith in Purgatory than to Reign in Hell

Better to be a Coppersmith in Purgatory than to Reign in Hell

Liberal secular parliamentary democracy is an absolute necessity for the UK and USA.

And I wholeheartedly condemn, without qualification, the kind of arrogant and hubristic critique that strays from criticizing how the political systems of these countries operate in terms of their results, and ends up criticizing the legitimacy of liberal secular parliamentary democracy itself.

Hence my critique at the time of the London Riots: Continue Reading

Weeks after Toddler Exile Fiasco, John Lewis Internal Dissident Mysteriously Disappeared… Um, ‘Disappears!’

Weeks after Toddler Exile Fiasco, John Lewis Internal Dissident Mysteriously Disappeared… Um, ‘Disappears!’

Notable socialite-apologist silk-peddler syndicate John Lewis has recently got into trouble for its new policy of systematically exiling toddlers and other vicious and unpredictable terrorists and master criminals:

But since this recent dastardly scheme started to unfold a few weeks back, some few brave internal dissidents have dared to play the aching predictable and mundanely tedious role of a tinpot Nicky Bukharin.

One irritatingly vainglorious John Lewis libertarian traitor rants:

Look, I know where the Supreme Leader is coming from on this one, and I’m not gonna be the one to challenge his unimpeachable wisdom. But, just think about it!

I mean, I know these evil toddlers are unscrupulous and evil and wicked and just plain barbaric, but don’t you understand that viciously hammering down on these vile people is precisely what they want? We’re just playing into their hands by disrupting our customary cozy, complacent, petit-bourgeois Surrey UKIP retiree way of life! But isn’t that precisely what these wicked bastards WANT us to do?!

Freddy Mercury “Entirely Unsuitable” for Benjamin Disraeli Biopic

Freddy Mercury “Entirely Unsuitable” for Benjamin Disraeli Biopic

The new Freddie Mercury biopic proceeds apace. Various news reports reminded us of how Sacha Baron Cohen will not be playing the role of Freddie Mercury in this film after all. It seems that Cohen’s vision of the film was that of an anarchic Swiftian livewire, but not everyone agreed with his approach. Classic example of ‘artistic differences.’

http://europe.newsweek.com/sacha-baron-cohen-opens-about-leaving-freddie-mercury-movie-435420?rm=eu

http://www.yourlocalguardian.co.uk/leisure/showbiz/14335159.Sacha_Baron_Cohen_reveals_dispute_with_Queen_made_him_quit_playing_Freddie_Mercury_in_upcoming_biopic/ 

But Brian May has recently revealed that Freddie Mercury once found himself in a very similar situation for the previously little known Francis Ford Coppola biopic of Disraeli. The latter edgy arthouse flick, by now, is ignobly confined to late night History Channel re-runs and David Cameron’s ludicrously antiquated and irrelevant stash of Betamax Z-movies.

The director had high hopes for Freddie, but before long, tempers started fraying. Disraeli was known for his ‘top bants’ in Parliament, as is well enough known… Continue Reading

4K Glossy News PODCAST 034 (3-14-16) St. Paddy’s Day Edition

4K Glossy News PODCAST 034 (3-14-16) St. Paddy’s Day Edition

The first fully 4K/UHD podcast with live music, tons of graphics and citations and and a length we haven’t seen in weeks. This podcast has it all.

All of this is available in UHD on YouTube by searching “Glossy Podcast” or as an MP3 on iTunes by searching “Glossy News”.

Here are the topics covered in the the March 14th, 2016 4K/UHD podcast.

* Why the death penalty needs to be re-thought, and the one true way to do it properly, if we’re not going to abolish it. Spoiler alert, Mythbusters are cited in this idea.

* Four ways to get cheap shoes for kids are shared, but the one you never thought of ranks at #1. It was right in front of you the whole time.

* Car commercials are unimaginative and frankly pretty ridiculous. They show dangerous cars. Why the hell would anyone want that?

* A live performance of “What will we do with the drunken sailor?” with a guitar and two mandolins, as part of our exclusive Saint Patrick’s Day coverage.

* Some say Republicans will win in a landslide in November. They are wrong, but perhaps they don’t realize exactly how ludicrous this is. As things stand now, the Dems will win the white house in November regardless of whom it is on either side. Here’s why.

* The true story of when I went into a Thai business expecting to just do normal business, only to find it was a bit of an unsavory place, and how they treated me when I tried desperately to say no.

* A bonus Saint Paddy’s day song (Black Velvet Band) performed live.

A Vatican Rockstar Who Pulls No Punches

A Vatican Rockstar Who Pulls No Punches

I know the Pope’s comments are from a while back; but don’t forget that much of the media are still giving a simplified, sanitized picture of Pope Francis for general consumption!

This being so, it’s definitely worth taking a long, hard, critical look at the most fashionable, genial, and photogenic clerical superstar since His Most Hot-Ass Holy-Buffness the Dalai Lama.

If my good friend Dr. Gasparri says a curse word against my mother, he can expect a punch,” Francis said half-jokingly (sic!), throwing a mock punch his way. “It’s normal. You cannot provoke. You cannot insult the faith of others. You cannot make fun of the faith of others.”
