Slavery Was Evil When Used By Capitalists 200 years Ago But Lefties Are Happy To benefit From It Now

Little Nicky has asked many times of those who scream and shout about the evils of the slave trade why they insist slavery is an evil only inflicted by white Europeans (especially the British) on black people when in fact slavery is still common in Africa, Asia and the Indian sub continent. none have ever answered intelligently (well they are lefties), some have predictably demonstrated how sad and ignorant they are by calling me a racist (sometimes I think it is the only word lefties know). Well here are a few truths about slavery before we go any further:

slavery

Yes, the story of that unfortunate era in modern history that was the transatlantic slave trade was only an episode in a much bigger story, a story that is still being written.

Well I don’t want to reiterate what I have said before about the hypocrisy, double standards and cognitive dissonance of those who style themselves liberal, progressive or radical. You might like to reflect on this next time you buy a chocolate bar.

Slave Children Used by Major Corporations to Make Chocolate

A Lawsuit alleging that Nestlé, ADM and Cargill benefit from child slavery in their cocoa supply chain in back in court is throwing new light on decades-old concern that the chocolate industry is built on the backs of slave children

Swiss multinational Nestlé, the largest food company on the planet—and anybody who consumes their products—has a chocolate problem.

More specifically, they have a child slavery problem.

Since the late 1990s, allegations have continually surfaced that the company benefits from slave children in its supply chain, and that slave children are used in its cocoa production in West Africa.

The allegations—including reports from UNICEF and the US State Department—brought enough attention and heat, including coverage from the BBC, that Nestlé’s CEO Bradley Alford signed an international agreement to end cocoa child labor in 2001, but by 2005 had not met the agreement’s deadline for eliminating the worst child labor offenses from the company’s supply chain.

Continue reading about slavery in modern Africa and then seeing as you lefties enjoy wallowing in guilt so much, take a look at this you evil slavers you (The human cost of your cheap clothing). And don’t try to turn it back on me, a) I’m not the one screaming about injustice and all that, and b) I pay through the nose to make sure as far as possible my trousers, shirts and guzzies are made in Europe.

Catholic Child Abuse – Left’s Double Standard Showing Again

One thing the self styled “progressive left” can be relied upon to deliver is …. (no, not election promies, don’t be silly) … hypocrisy.

Little Nicky Machiavelli and my chums at The Daily Stirrer have always been highly critical of the Roman Catholic Church’s attempts to sweep under the carpet cases of child abuse by its priests.

Child abuse is a terrible thing both when its involves the violation of a young child and when it relates to the seduction of a prepubescent girl by a middle aged man. Thus we deplore the Church’s cover up of their priests’ crimes and we also deplore cases in which a wealthy, famous man takes advantage of a thirteen year old girl.

It is here we part company with the “progressive left” because they seem to think if the seducer is an artist, a director of stunningly up-his-own-arse films and a supporter of the crackpot ideas of “progressive left” politics called Roman Polanski it is perfectly OK to commit statutory rape on an under age girl.

Not only are the “progressive left” supporting Polanski’s attempts to return to the USA thirty years after he fled American justice having entered a plead of guilty to the crime he was accused of, they are clamouring for a Presidential pardon for him.

Ah, but it is alright for Polanski to do such thinks. American leftie air-head, feminist and race hustler Whoopi Goldberg says “What Roman did was not rape rape.” No? Well what kind of rape was it?

Other stars supporting Polanski include Martin Scorsese, Kevin Costner, Susan SArandon and the Fuckwit Of Fuckwits Woody Allen. These people have sent a petition to Barack Obama on behalf of the director. Polanski, you see, was so talented, so special, mortal laws could not apply to such a genius. Yeah right.

Funny, I do not remember this group being so sympathetic towards Gary Glitter. I don’t remember them calling for clemency in the case of a footballer accused of seducing under age girls. I do not recall much support for actor and comedian Chris Langham when he was found to have been visiting child sex sites on the internet. What I do recall is the neo – nazi left howling for blood. No punishment was great enough for the perpetrators of these terrible crimes. In much the same way they are howling for the blood of Pope Benedict now evan as they demand our indulgence for the child – fucker Roman Polanski.

If we are to have rule of law one guiding principle must be honoured.

SAME RULES APPLY

A group that want to apply draconian laws to its opponents but exempt those with whom it sympathises from such rules has nothing to offer a democracy.

How Do Civil Servants Earn Their Salary?

Iain Dale yesterday brought us this intriguing item, a Parliamentary Question from David Ruffley.

David Ruffley: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how much the Minister for Employment and Welfare Reform’s blog has cost to administer in each month since its inception; what the budget for the blog is for 2007-08; and how many unique visitors to the blog there have been since May.

Jim Murphy: The Welfare Reform and Child Poverty blog was launched on the DWP internet site on 16 October 2006. Costs to develop and administer the blog were met from existing resources, and current staffing levels. Ongoing maintenance equates to half the time of one member of staff. From October to date this has cost £1,487 per month.At present no funding decisions have been made about the financial year 2007-08.Since it was launched it has attracted 1,987 unique visitors resulting in 4,731 hits

Iain commented:

Now, if this blog has been up for three months, and is costing £1,487 per month, this means that the blog is costing over £2 per visitor. And the subject of the blog… Child Poverty! As Mr Littlejohn would say, ‘you couldn’t make it up’. If you look at the blog, in the last months, there have been just 4 posts (which read like press releases…). And they are paying half a member of staff to maintain it ?

I cannot add anything to Iain Dale’s comment except to say its nice from an ego polishing pov to know that a government funded and maintained website dealing with a very important topic gets as many hits in three months as Boggart Blog gets in a week but as a taxpayer it makes me puke.
