The map above shows how Europeans feel about their children being in a relationship with a black person.

The data comes from the 2015 Eurobarometer report on Discrimination in the EU.

On average only 64% of EU citizens would be comfortable with their sons or daughters being in a relationship with a Black person. However, the results vary widely by country.

Sweden is the most accepting at 89%, followed by Luxembourg 85%, Netherlands 83%, Denmark 82%, and the UK at 81%.

The least accepting country is Bulgaria at 21%, followed by the Czech Republic and Slovakia at 23% each.

If you agree with me that’s nice but what I really want to achieve is to make you question the status quo. Look between the lines, do your own research. Do not be a passive observer in this game we call life.

Florida Shooting: MSM Doesn’t Miss Opportunity to Attack Trump

US President Donald Trump has called the suspect in the mass school shooting in Florida “mentally disturbed” as he vowed to help local jurisdictions tackle mental health issues, but he made no mention of stricter gun control laws.

That’s because stricter gun control wouldn’t have made a difference.

[…]Trump pledged his administration would help “tackle the difficult issue of mental health” and said the issue of improving safety in schools would be the top priority during a meeting later this month with governors and state attorneys general. Yet Trump made no mention of gun control laws in the aftermath of the third-deadliest school shooting in US history.

The shooter passed the background check and didn’t have a criminal record.

Emperor Mal’s Sharri law bans office bonking

“No sex, please: We’re politicians”. Illustration: Bill Leak/The Australian

From Utegate on, it seems that there is never a political scandal that Malcolm Turnbull’s arrogant ineptitude can’t blow up into full-scale crisis.

Deputy Prime Minister, Nationals leader Barnaby Joyce has been shellacked for the past week, after journalist Sharri Markson broke the news that Joyce had knocked up a staffer, and dumped his wife for his doxy. The rolling scandal has become yet another crisis for the Turnbull government.

But Fizzer’s latest effort at damage control has knocked the matter out of the ball-park of bumbling incompetence, and right into the outfield of hilarity.

Who is Lushington D. Brady?

Well, a pseudonym. Obviously.

But the name Lushington Dalrymple Brady has been chosen carefully. Not only for the sum of its overall mien of seedy gentility, reminiscent perhaps of a slightly disreputable gentlemen of letters, but also for its parts, each of which borrows from the name of a Vandemonian of more-or-less fame (or notoriety) who represents some admirable quality which will hopefully animate the persona of Lushington D. Brady.

Incite Politics

Should’ve kept it in your pants, Barnaby

A week may a long time in politics, but for the Turnbull government, a week is just the time from one crisis to the next.

A week ago, Malcolm Turnbull was riding a high on the back of an unexpected opinion poll bounce. A week later, the Coalition is mired in a new scandal, and Turnbull’s leadership and judgement are under a dark cloud again.

This week’s millstone for Turnbull is his Deputy Prime Minister, Nationals leader and briefly-Kiwi Barnaby Joyce . . .

“La révolution dévore ses enfants”

-Jacques Mallet du Pan

 

In the United States at the present time, the #metoo movement has successfully cornered the market in the expression of a growing sense of moral outrage towards any form of sexual abuse whether it be real or imagined.

This virtual vanguard of victim-hood is shifting into an ever increasingly violent maelstrom of blaming and shaming a growing list of primarily men, without any thought given to propriety or simple forms of jurisprudence.

Media icons such as Oprah Winfrey, Michael Moore and Meryl Streep to name but a few, who have all been complicit in the vicious cycles of abuse which have fuelled the movie and music making industries for so long, are now leading the way in this return to a more medieval approach to justice, wherein such pesky ideas like Habeas Corpus and evidentially based judgements are no longer deemed necessary.

National’s multiple leadership elections

National’s current leadership election is going to elect someone who will say that they have the support of the caucus and will stay until the election at least.

The problem with this is that everyone knows what happened with the Australian Liberals between 2007 and 2010. They were turfed out in 2007, and elected Brendan Nelson. Nelson then got nailed by Malcolm Turnbull.   Read more »

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.

Wait … what? There are natural fluctuations?

Way back in 1974 before the Climate Bandwagon had rolled into town and evil, evil, CO2 was blamed for everything a Chinese scientist published “A Preliminary Study on the Climatic Fluctuation during the last 5000 years in China.”

Another scientist has just translated the article that was published by Zhu Kezhen in China Daily, June 19th, 1973 (Translated by Shenhui Lang, PhD)

Zhu wasn’t your average idiot, so cannot easily be dismissed:

Zhu Kezhen (1890-1974) was a Chinese meteorologist and geologist. He graduated from the School of Agriculture, University of Illinois, and obtained his PhD in Meteorology from Harvard University. From 1920, he had successively served as chair of Department of Meteorology, Nanjing University, director of Chinese Institute of Meteorology, Academia Sinica, president of National Chekiang University (now Zhejiang University), and vice president of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Because Zhu was not looking to prove anything, rather just having an honest look at the metrological records, his results are worth noting.  (Just add an “h” for the Climate Alarmists response, “his results are worth nothing”)

Dr Seuss may have been describing WH when he wrote, “He was shortish. And oldish. And brownish. And mossy. And he spoke with a voice that was sharpish and bossy.”  WH, however, is tallish and only just fits in his MG.

Leftist Media Gush Over Eva Braun

Dictators’ Olympic “charm offensive”, then and now.

Imagine if, in 1936, the “progressive” U.S. media had swooned over Hitler’s partner, Eva Braun, while simultaneously rubbishing Franklin D. Roosevelt and his Vice-President. Imagine that leftists gushed that the Berlin Olympics were a “coming out party” for the Nazi regime. Imagine if the crimes and belligerence of the Nazis were already indubitably acknowledged rather than a distant threat, yet the media chattered excitedly about Frau Braun “smiling prettily” and “stealing the thunder” of their own, hated President, with a “charm offensive”.

A modern version of just such a bizarre outburst of fan-worship is happening now, as Kim Yo Jong, sister of brutal dictator Kim Jong Un and already acknowledged as “Kim’s closest confidant and is a senior cadre in North Korea’s ruling party”, attends the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, in South Korea.
