Not Part And Parcel Of Living In A Big City After All

Say what you like about the Florida shootings, but at least liberals have finally found a foreign culture that they're prepared to say is inferior to British culture. Dealing with cultures where they carve off their daughter's clitoris? That requires 'nuance', but the Second Amendment is bad, bad, bad.

Apparently, this time you should look back in anger. Hold the tealights and the balloons, and bring on the rage. If we don't do anything at all, the terrorists will have won.

Or something.

The thing is though that the contrast between Britain and the US when it comes to mass murder is exactly why Americans are reluctant to give up their guns. Some say the Second Amendment needs to be repealed to protect the public, others say the same about the UK Human Rights Act. The difference is that the Second Amendment is an integral part of a constitution that's not only older than that of Germany, France, Spain, Portugal and Greece, it's older than all of them combined. Meanwhile, the Human Rights Act was foisted on the UK by Blair in 1997, and the public keep voting for a government that promises to - but never actually does - repeal it.

To the point: the Second Amendment survives because the American people support it, while the Human Rights Act survives because the political class have imposed it on the public.

The Second Amendment is both a product and a foundation of a uniquely American view on the relationship between the citizen and the state. At a deep level the American people have decided that as many problems as an empowered citizenry brings, that's still preferable to a phoney-baloney democracy where a depraved political class is free to inflict obscenities such as the HRA on the serfs.

They Don't Want It, They Just Want You Not To Have It

We’re now more than a fortnight from the outrageously outrageous revelations about The Presidents Club and the feminazis are still begging the question: if there is ‘no place for this sort of thing in modern Britain’, what is there a place for? 

Hey, it’s a serious question: in so far as they’ve successfully bullied charities into turning down donations from these guys, what are they going to do to plug the hole in their accounts? 

To put it another way, if the folks at the Presidents’ Club really were just a bunch of anachronistic losers who need to get with the New Girl Order, the feminazis should have no trouble selling tickets for their hip & happening [Current Year] alternative. They can call it the Commissars’ Club, with Clare Balding lookalike waitresses dishing out organic vegan meals while Julie Bindel entertains everyone with a 45 minute routine about sending men to ‘some kind of camps’.  

But no: the floor is clear for as these empowered wimminz to fill the gap but, strangely, it turns out that they’re more concerned with criticising how men raise money for charity than actually, y’know, raising any money themselves. In the bonkers zero sum world of the feminazis, men have lost so they’ve won, and pointing out that the fact that charities are objectively worse off is, like, sexist or summink. 

Has there ever been a more perfect example of feminism in action?

The Protocols Of The Learned Elders Of The Patriarchy

Apparently, the online world is a cesspit of fake news and you should only trust the verified truthiness of the MSM and their deeply fact-checked stories. Like this:
Liberal Democrat deputy leader Jo Swinson has revealed how she desperately fought off an attempted rape by a ‘nice young man’ she thought was a friend.
The former Minister only stopped the horrifying attack by shouting at him that what he was about to do was rape. Ms Swinson told The Mail on Sunday last night: ‘I was really under threat. I was physically pushing him away and saying, “I do not want to do it.” 
Sounds like we need to get this guy off the street ASAP! To the Batmobile, Robin!

But wait....
The traumatic incident happened in the late 1990s when she was a 19-year-old studying at the London School of Economics. She declined to name the attacker, who was a fellow student. 
Yep, this guy was so dangerous she decided to do absolutely nothing about him and still won't name him.

Say, does Haven Monahan have an alibi?
Ms Swinson, a former Business Minister in the Coalition Government, added: ‘He was about to do something horrendous and I managed to get him to stop. I told him, “If you make me, that’s rape.”
Alternative Interpretation: this silly cow goes back to some guy's place at 1 AM, he tries to get to first base, and she freaks out and calls him a rapist.

Which is not deranged at all.

Speaking personally, I'm thinking that if anyone dodged a bullet here, it was the guy who belatedly realised why no man should ever talk to a feminist.

They hate you simply for existing, hence why they come out with stuff like this: 
There is this view among many that this violence against women is something which is sort of the stranger leaping out of the dark alley, or a whole different series of horrible people that they wouldn’t have anything to do with.

Actually, what I took from that experience was that I could very easily see how rape could happen and the rapist could be a nice young man who would not consider that would be something he could do.
Yes, indeed, feminism is a nut shell: the complete lack of evidence that a guy is a rapist just means he's the worst type of rapist of them all, a non-raping rapist. He's clearly the kind of cunning predator who hides his evil by not committing any offenses whatsoever.

Oh, and the real reason she's suddenly remembered she was, like, kind of raped. Sort of:
Ms Swinson reveals her distressing experience in a new book, Equal Power. Described as a ‘call to arms’, it examines inequality issues – from the gender pay gap to everyday sexism – and how to turn them around. 
Yes, she's taking on sexism by pushing deranged conspiracy theories like 'rape culture'. Tune in next week when she'll be taking on antisemitism by demanding universities teach the Protocols of Zion.

The process is the punishment, and it's sometimes capital punishment:
A coroner has slammed a detective for acting as 'judge and jury' in the case of a grandfather who killed himself after being accused of historic sex abuse.
Alan Bailey was 'hounded' to his death after being accused of indecency and rape by a woman who said he had abused her when she was 15, the inquest heard last week.
Yep, we're back in 'It Could Be Yewtree' territory.
The father-of-two, who maintained his innocence and was awaiting trial, faced a campaign of intimidation by the woman's partner leaving him 'paranoid' and suicidal.
But when he complained to [UNKNOWN POLICE FORCE] investigating officer Aneela Khali-Khan, she allegedly told him to 'man up' - failing to probe the harassment he faced.
Quick! Guess what force UNKNOWN is?

Yep, it's Hillsborough PD again! They've finally found a rape case they want to investigate. I can't imagine what it was about this guy that made them so much happier to go after him than, say, Rotherham taxi drivers. But it gets better, which is to say much worse:
The evening before he was due to answer bail, Ms Khali-Khan rang to say his estranged partner wanted to move back in the house.
She told him his wife should not suffer because 'she had done no wrong'. On February 18 he was charged with a series of sex offences against the woman.
The next day he appeared at court and was granted bail until his trial. But he was forced out of his home and ended up in a hostel for drug addicts and the homeless.
I guess the Tori Cuzt aren't that bad if they're free to spend time harassing a guy who's never been convicted of anything out of his own home.
But his alleged victim's partner started turning up at the store and then driving slowly past Mr Bailey's flat, on one occasion with the woman in his car.
He reported four incidents of harassment, but no officers visited him. He became increasingly 'jittery' and 'tearful' fearing he would be re-arrested for breaching his bail, though he had done nothing wrong.
Take note: stalking cases like this are *literally* why we have legislation covering harassment, not 'people saying mean stuff on twitter'. It's also what the police should be dealing with, instead of throwing men out of their home.
Ms Khali-Khan, who joined South Yorkshire Police in 2003, was a detective constable at the time with two years' experience in the criminal investigation department.
Last year she was promoted to Acting Detective Inspector. She confirmed ringing Mr Bailey to mediate between him and his wife over who should be living at the home.
At which point Mrs Merton would ask what it was about Ms Khali-Khan that first attracted the Promotion Board?

It's clearly not her talent for police work:
Dr Hunter asked the officer: 'You said his wife had 'done no wrong'. What wrong, at that point, had Mr Bailey done? He had none. You assumed he was guilty?'
Ms Khali-Khan, who had no record of the phone call, replied: 'I would not have assumed that.'
It works just like that in the real world, too. Take HMRC for example:
"We have reason to believe you have failed to declare income from a second job."
"I have no record of that."
"OK, fair enough, off you go then."
Yeah, right! Plus bear in mind that plumbers, say, aren't trained in bookkeeping and it's unpaid work on top of their real job. Neither of those two things applies to police officers and recording investigations. In fact, there's seems to be a pattern forming:
Mr Bailey's other daughter Angela Bailey said after her father reported the other man driving past his house on April 22, Ms Khali-Khan rang him and told him to 'Man up'.
The coroner asked the officer about the phone call. She said they had a 'lengthy conversation', but her notes ran to just seven lines.
She could not remember Mr Bailey saying he was scared for his safety or that she told him 'no law had been broken'.
Again: Acting Detective Inspector and, oh, that second job!
Dr Hunter asked why she had not fully investigated the intimidation or a possible case of perverting the course of justice that could have affected legal proceedings.
'You did not take him seriously, you dismissed him,' he told the officer. 'I put it to you that you had already acted as judge and jury and had already formed an opinion about Mr Bailey's guilt.'
Dr Hunter is now a member of Britain's fastest growing club: the 'National Association of People With More Balls Than Tory MPs'.
He added: 'I feel Mr Bailey would have been better served by the Keystone Cops as opposed to South Yorkshire Police.
Yes, the Keystone Cops dealt with bank robberies, not people suddenly remembering they'd been robbed thirty years ago. Here's the key bit:
Dr Hunter accepted South Yorkshire Police's practices have improved significantly since 2010, but said he would be referring the force to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (formerly the IPCC) over the actions of officer Khalil-Khan.
He described her investigation as 'incompetent' and said there were 'serious questions about her conduct and probity that needed to be addressed'. She also 'missed opportunities' to deal with the intimidation.
Dr Hunter also referred the force over their handling of the family's complaint after Mr Bailey's death. He questioned their internal investigation and said his daughters received 'platitudes and a whitewash'.
'Daughters' you say? Well, that settles it! Women don't lie about allegations of crime.

See, this is the point. An allegation of a 'historic' sex crime is enough to destroy a man's life, but when we have complaints made by the deceased and his family *at the time* combined with a suspect who's records are dodgier than the clocks at Honest Joe's Car Emporium, suddenly it turns out that you can't trust chicks.

In fact, it's worse than that. The unsupported testimony of Ms Loony-Pants was enough to threaten a man's liberty and have his reputation destroyed, but we're not even allowed to question whether someone who - based on her own testimony - is incapable of basic record keeping should really be employed as a police officer, let alone promoted.

To return to a point above: if the Tory Party really wants to be relevant again, they should ditch the constant rebrands and focus groups and just go after the thugs in blue who destroy lives at the drop of a hat, then skate on technicalities when they're under fire.

It's Science (For Some Values Of Science)

Showing exactly the kind of savvy political judgement that secured their massive landslide in 2017, the Tory Party is staying well clear of the John Worboys fiasco. I'm guessing their computer models of the electorate warned them to avoid alienating the key 'serial rapist' demographic.

Meanwhile, in the real world, this case is reinforcing everything we ever suspected about the rehab industry. Consider for instance their strange definition of 'independent expert'.

Personally, I’m just shocked – shocked – to find that an ‘independent expert’ producing reports for the Parole Board turns out to a True Believer in the Cult of Rehab... and she’d have gotten away with it too if it weren’t for you meddling kids reading the stuff she’s published openly for years!

As Britain's most brilliant blogger once said, the rehab industry is the Rosetta Stone for understanding how the left gets away with it. For years the left has tried to claim that if you oppose the rehab industry then you, sir, hate The Science. Now it turns out that these scientists sound a heck of a lot like a Guardian editorial.

Hey, can we at least get some ground rules so we can tell when they're being scientists and when they're being activists? Maybe something like lab coat on equals expert, lab coat off equals campaigner?
