Punches, Pronouns & Power

BY SAM WHITE The world of transgender activism is disorientating. Stare into it for too long, and it won’t just stare back, it’ll call you a TERF and punch you in the face. In the warped hinterlands of post-logic social justice, the ground slips easily from beneath your feet. There’s no reason or consistency, and no truth to which you can anchor. Draped over the … Continue reading Punches, Pronouns & Power

When a Man Loathes a Woman

BY BEN PENSANT Donald Trump has done some truly despicable things. From deporting transgender soldiers to mocking a disabled beauty queen, from building a wall around Charlottesville to grabbing his daughter’s p****, there are few depths this dangerous knave hasn’t plumbed in the name of white supremacy. Yet just when we think he can’t stoop any lower, he horrifies us again with his alarming capacity … Continue reading When a Man Loathes a Woman

The Russell Square “Reformation”

BY SAM WHITE Forgive my transgression but I am about to commit a terrible sin and speak badly of Maajid Nawaz. His counter extremism organisation Quilliam, based in Russell Square, is a difficult group to figure out. On the one hand Nawaz speaks a lot of sense. He draws attention to grooming gangs, has advised Muslim women against wearing the veil, called out left-wing violence, … Continue reading The Russell Square “Reformation”

Pregressives

BY SAM WHITE Social justice progressives are like a sack of rocks tied round your waist when you’re trying to run a marathon. It’s not that they’re bad people, they’re just so far behind what’s really going on. They’re sitting at the back of the class, wiping gunk from their eyes and babbling nonsensically, while the rest of the school sighs heavily and waits for … Continue reading Pregressives

Stop Funding Hate Censor & Suck

BY BEN PENSANT Every now and then a heart-warming example of human endeavour allows you to fleetingly forget the horror of being alive today. And my day was brightened by one such example last week when I read about the brave Dutchman who took on a supermarket chain over their micro-aggressive positioning of hate-filled newspapers where customers can see them. ‘Dear @waitrose, could you put … Continue reading Stop Funding Hate Censor & Suck

Tear the Statues Down!

BY BEN PENSANT Is there anything the far left love more than doctoring history? From the holocaust and The Great Purge to 9/11 and the 2017 general election, give us a documented event that messes with our narrative and we’ll move hell or high water to pretend it didn’t happen that way. And if hell or high water refuse to budge we’ll take a metal pole to them until they darn well do. But brave US leftists have recently taken this one step … Continue reading Tear the Statues Down!

Channel 4 Chan

BY SAM WHITE Having fought for years for gay and lesbian rights, having stood up in defiance of the religious right for the liberty to ridicule the church, having rejected thin-skinned theological calls for special treatment, having championed individual liberties and freedom of thought and expression, the progressive left has now decided to give all that up and convert to Islam. Allahu Akbar. Channel 4 … Continue reading Channel 4 Chan
