A leftist student group at Goldsmith’s Univerity, London, defended Stalin’s Gulag abour camps Tuesday, calling them more “compassionate” than the “western, capitalist notion of prison”.
The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer Plus Society at London’s Goldsmiths University suggested people who question transgenderism are sent to such camps, for up to ten years, for “re-education”. The are of course currently outraged that a transgender chick-with-a-dick who was sent to a womens prison for politically correct reasons must now stand trial having raped and sexually assaulted several female inmates.
“The ideas of [Trans exclusive radical feminists] and anti-Trans bigots literally *kill* and must be eradicated through re-education,” the student group wrote on Twitter before deleting their account.
When Claire Graham, a special education needs teacher, asked if their attempts to silence a list of academics who questioned transgenderism was “a bit fascist”, the account replied: “Na, we’ll just arrange to send you to the Gulag.”
Gulags were brutal labour camps used by Stalin’s Soviet dictatorship to lock up opponents and “enemies of the state”, resulting in the death of an estimated 1.05 million people.
Whenever I come across the particularly nasty version of fascism these people have embraced I am reminded of the words of CS Lewis on tyranny:
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
Which is why the stupid self – righteous followers of Corbyn and his sidekick, the Stalinist thug McDonnell should never be allowed to have even a sniff of power.
from Russia Today:
Ukraines new authorities resort to dictatorial methods in regions Russia.
Russia has lashed out at the new regime in Kiev, accusing it of using dictatorial and terrorist methods to suppress dissent in the country, with backing from the West which is acting out of geopolitical self-interest.
The position of some of our Western partners doesnt show genuine concern, but a desire to act out of geopolitical self-interest, said a statement on the Russian foreign ministrys website.
There is no condemnation of criminal actions by extremists, including manifestations or neo-Nazism and anti-Semitism. In fact, these are being encouraged.
The statement went on to say that outside sponsors are advancing a regime change in the country, without a desire to find national consensus.”

Well that didn’t take long did it?
A case of the pot calling the kettle black maybe, but while the ousted President was a twat, the former glamour model release to lead the revolution we must remember, was in proson for fraud and intimidation and was awaiting trial on charges of murder (read more).
When will our half with media, fuckwit politicians and blethering hand wringers understand that such places are not like the genteel suburbs of sout west London. They’re not even as civilized as the rough suburbs of north east Manchester.
”These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the
sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their
country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of
man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered..” Thomas Paine 1776
We should never give in to tyranny.
Mention tyranny of course and people immediately think of Hitlers stormtroopers herding people into Gas Chambers or Saddams thugs dousing families in petrol and grinningly rattling a matchbox. The most dangerous tyrannies are more subtle and insidious though. Take the tyranny of The Bottom Line for example.
You, like me, probably spent most of your life thinking the Hippocratic Oath sworn by newly qualified medical professionals bound them to preserve life and alleviate suffering full stop.
Not any more it dont.
Sometime in the last few decades, probably quite recently in fact, it has been rewritten to read I will endeavour to preserve life and alleviate suffering while always prioritising the need to stay within budget. Or so it would seem.
You may remember Little Nicky Machiavelli slamming the government a few weeks ago over Health Minister Patricia Hewitts promise that she would get the deeply indebted NHS back in the black or resign. We suspected some creative accounting would be involved of course.
Well its almost March and, surprise, surprise, the NHS is back in the black. So what dark arts did the minister call upon? The tyranny of the bottom line of course. By that fiscal sleight of hand called accountancy the ministry have diverted our attention from what was going on so now they can point to The Bottom Line and say look, no deficit.
But what has really happened is not so easy to quantify. The necessary savings have been made by withholding the funds allocated for patient care, thus denying sick people the best treatments.
Every winter there is an upsurge of new cases presenting themselves to doctors surgeries and hospitals. People get sicker quicker in winter. Wisely the government has always put money aside for this peak in demand. Not this year though, saving New Labours Bacon and Hewitt’s sorry arse are much more important than preserving life and alleviating suffering in a world ruled by the tyranny of the bottom line.
Read about my experiences at the hands of the NHS bureaucracy. A Stroke OF Luck was published in the USA a few years ago and sold a few thousand before the publishers shut up shop (not my fault, honest.)
There is some strong language in the book but very little, it does not warrant the Adult Content warning Authorsden puts on it.
