Writers Can’t Be Too Arrogant

Writers Can’t Be Too Arrogant

There are many exercises in humility, and some of us need them more than others. Joining the Liberal Democrats could be one; I bridle under discipline. One day, I would like to do some real ‘foot-work.’
Of course, mildly uncomfortable editorial changes are another. Continue Reading

Freedom of Speech is Not Up for Debate (Memes)

Freedom of Speech is Not Up for Debate (Memes)

There’s always some excuse.

‘Hate speech is not freedom of speech!’

‘Historical denialism is not freedom of speech!’

‘Blasphemy is not freedom of speech!’

A Brief Satirical History of ‘Racism is Prejudice Plus Power’

A Brief Satirical History of ‘Racism is Prejudice Plus Power’

The prejudice plus power thesis says that if you don’t belong to a racially privileged group, you can’t be racist.

(Memes) We Have to Do Something to Accommodate the Male Community: What do They Really Want?

Next time you see a man defending rape/warmongering/niqab/pimping/porn/religious extremism of ANY kind, remind him that he belongs to the ‘Male Community,’ and ask him how his safe space is going.
If men start getting referred to via patronizing faux-leftie metropolitan jargon and soundbites, they might learn to shut their traps a little! Continue Reading

(Meme) The Marxist Gayssot Law: France’s Greatest Gift to the Nazi Community?

(Meme) The Marxist Gayssot Law: France’s Greatest Gift to the Nazi Community?

Everyone knows historical negationism laws like the Marxist Gayssot Laws are authoritarian and anti-speech. This certain fact is a ‘sky is blue’ kind of thing which is self-evidently not open to debate.
