The anti-Blair cometh….

The anti-Blair cometh….

tony-blair
And all shall worship him.

NO WMD….?

NO ‘greater Israel project‘….?

I watched the BBC world service in Morecambe 2 days ago, and someone on the ground at the time of the incident came on and started giving a live account.

“everyone on the ground and witnessed the event agreed, the vehicles all burst into flames at the same time”.

Almost immediately, he was cut off.

The BBC re-iterated the BBC line, ie. that it was Russia, or Syria. It was an air strike.

When they tried to get the guy on again, his sound had been cut out. It was not possible to talk to him any further about what he had witnessed first-hand at that event.

Bullshit.

Haters be hatin’

  • In the Jeremy Corbyn re-election.
  • In the Brexit vote.
  • In the Trump vs Clinton election.

All these MASS MEDIA orchestrated HATE campaigns:-

  • We all know how scary and bad Brexit was….. It happened anyhow……
  • We all know how bad a person Jeremy Corbyn is…… Re-elected anyhow…..
  • We all know what a dangerous neo-nazi fascist Trump is…… remains to be seen…..

As a general rule of thumb, I’d say if people hate you, you’re doing something right.

If the media and establishment hate you too

You’ve got to be the best person ever!

Kind of ‘anti-Blair’.

Bring it on….

Trump: The face of US Authoritarianism

Trump: The face of US Authoritarianism

Make America great againIn the 1990’s, a political scientist named Stanley Feldman developed a set of four very simple questions to related to parenting to test the level of authoritarianism.

  1. Please tell me which one you think is more important for a child to have: independence or respect for elders?
  2. Please tell me which one you think is more important for a child to have: obedience or self-reliance?
  3. Please tell me which one you think is more important for a child to have: to be considerate or to be well-behaved?
  4. Please tell me which one you think is more important for a child to have: curiosity or good manners?

The success of the test in pin-pointing inherent beliefs indicative of an authoritarian character trait was enough to mark an industry standard.

These tests and similar have been carried out on voters in the United States, with some interesting results.

If not unsurprising, it does quantify what some have been saying all along.

Here is the evidence. Taken from vox media


 

The rise of American authoritarianism

A niche group of political scientists may have uncovered what’s driving Donald Trump’s ascent. What they found has implications that go well beyond 2016.

The American media, over the past year, has been trying to work out something of a mystery: Why is the Republican electorate supporting a far-right, orange-toned populist with no real political experience, who espouses extreme and often bizarre views? How has Donald Trump, seemingly out of nowhere, suddenly become so popular?

What’s made Trump’s rise even more puzzling is that his support seems to cross demographic lines — education, income, age, even religiosity — that usually demarcate candidates. And whereas most Republican candidates might draw strong support from just one segment of the party base, such as Southern evangelicals or coastal moderates, Trump currently does surprisingly well from the Gulf Coast of Florida to the towns of upstate New York, and he won a resounding victory in the Nevada caucuses.
