The Proverbial Echo Chamber

I’ve been studying and watching for a long time now. Rather than express my views and argue the point with reason and logic. Over time you begin to realise you don’t make a difference. You also realise you can’t cure stupid with words. Part of me wants to give up writing as I fear words don’t carry the meaning they used too and I feel this is a direct result of the ever changing definition of words. Who decided that the government are the ones who change definitions of words? How are they qualified to do so? If there’s one last great bastion of freedom for people like me, it’s our gorgeously crafted language. For me, words carry power. The art of debate and discussion is lost in these times of offence and safe spaces. The last time I properly put the them to good use, was in the lead up to the referendum when I fought with remain supporters. We won. Yet I have watched as the dialogue became a monologue, when the words fell silent from the winning side. It seems that all was won at the time to most leave voters who had fought against the barrage of insults and the risk of alienating friends and even family members. I have experienced this first hand on both sides, I have also done my fair share of culling in the Facebook friends list. In doing so though I have started to create an echo chamber. The problem I have is that from what i’ve seen since these times, is there is no changing the minds of these people. Losing wasn’t enough for them, whilst I admire their fighting spirit as it is synonymous with the British culture I hold dear, you have to know when to cut your loses and carry on. 

It’s one long drawn out saga that feels and sounds like a broken record. It’s like being in the ring with the guy who does the slow get up at the count of 10 and says he’s ready to fight again, even though the ref has bought an end to the fight, then he feels aggrieved at the outcome. I think a lot of it is denial, as the media portrayed it as a battle already won, purely because of their biased opinions which in turn created a skewed reality for the remain side in this. Cynicism gets the better of me here where I mention that if the media tells you something, usually you shouldn’t believe it. Especially when they’ve already picked a side. To be fair it’s what made the win so sweet, was that it was considered a foregone conclusion by all major media outlets. This brings me to the current state of affairs.

The narrative is yet again skewed as they concentrate solely on May and her government and their handling or lack of, in this case, of negotiations. Mainly because it was never argued or part of the discussion in the referendum. The referendum itself was about the issue and whether or not it should go ahead, not about the substance of the issue. To me, a leave voter, I knew exactly what I was voting for. What they term now as hard brexit. As I understand it, if any part of the union exists between us then you haven’t technically left. What the remain voters want is to stay attached to the apron strings by staying in the customs union and single market, which is akin to saying “i’m leaving home” then moving into the shed at the end of the garden. Also what surprises me, is that the EU have proved the point I made all along about how they are, yet remain stay silent. These same people see how Poland and Hungary are being treated and how the EU are basically using communist regime tactics to punish the states. Also the fearsome rhetoric that emanates from Brussels of EU armies and nuclear weapons. I have started to call them the fourth reich. Especially after some of the language used by Merkel when she announced that a coalition has been formed recently, talking about a fresh start for Europe, implying that Germany was Europe or that she was the leader of Europe in some respect. Such disgusting remarks from a woman who single handed has dragged this continent into disarray. Stirring up religious and cultural resentment across Europe is nothing to be proud of. Her thinly veiled attempt at replacement migration will take years to sort out and has even made her make some u-turns in her policies. Germany is no leading light in modern day Europe, it’s also no secret that the EU was created because of Germany and their thirst for lebensraum. Take a seat Angela. 

Instead now we look to new ‘leading’ figures to show us the light and a solution to this nightmare we face. Strangely it has dropped in the lap of Poland. Their stance in standing up to the migrant quotas, even in the face of sanctions and public tensions with the EU is refreshing. They have become the new poster boys/girls of anti-EU sentiments, having taken the mantle from this toothless attempt at freedom by our majority remain cabinet. Same can be said of Viktor Orban, the PM of Hungary. I truly wish we had more politicians like him over here. He took a stand against this forced ‘invasion’ by erecting fences all along the border of his country and is trying to bill the EU for them, legend. Even though i’m not religious, Eastern European nations are taking a stand for Christianity in all forms and ensuring that the moral and cultural teachings that all of our lives are based on are protected and I have great admiration for that. Why is everyone on the other side so hellbent on trying to rip up our cultural roots? Is it out of what they perceive as guilt? It has been mentioned that some feel guilt over what European nations have achieved over the years with our colonial heritage. Taking a dim view that we offered nothing and took everything for ourselves. Can you not see that it has benefited every nation that it has touched? Have you noticed that most have wilted since we relinquished power? The only thing we didn’t get right was trying to give them one of the cornerstones to our way of life, democracy. Democracy doesn’t work in unadvanced countries. Whether it be down to the uncivilised factions that live in these countries that try to stunt the growth of the nation or whether they lack the understanding of the concept. With democracy comes power. Power in the hands of those untrained can only do damage. I won’t go into detail as I actually plan on writing a book one day soon in regards to the Empire.

My only wish is for the leave side to rear it’s ugly head and wipe remain out. I’m sick to death of sitting idly by as remain swallow whatever the soup of the day is with the mainstream media and speak as if they’re in a position of authority on the matter, as there is clearly no leadership or voice for leave. I feel they have slightly lost their way and sick of fighting a war that’s already won. It’s sad that there was division sown by our own media, you can’t blame either side for that. I’m holding out hope that this single issue is seen through to the end and not rerouted by the losing side. I’m coming back to the fray after taking some time out as I care about the future of this country and I can only see another war coming. We have a duty to lead the way and give others hope. Others like Hungary and Poland, we need to prove that it’s possible to leave this autocratic union and live your life free from the shackles of directives and people telling you what to do. That’s basically all the EU is, it’s a bully. It’s been taking our lunch money all this time and said we can sit at their table at lunch but only on the very end of the table as there’s 27 others on the table and we can’t have a say on what’s for lunch. That’s enough lunch metaphors as it’s making me hungry. 

You’ll be hearing from me soon.

Refugee Crisis: The Blind Leading The Blind (Warning Graphic Content)

I have waited for a long time to write this article. Many reasons account for this, the main one being that I have learned from previous experience it’s best not to voice opinions on a fresh subject. It’s better to wait for it to fully unfold and you can give a more thorough and formed opinion on the state of events. Another one being the picture of little ‘Aylan’ washed up on the beach. Any article written opposed to the migration across Europe of Refugees was surely designed to fall on deaf ears if released at that time. Liberals were screaming left, right and centre about ‘how can we let this continue?!’ when in fact they were being blinded by a largely opinionated left wing press who had carved out an elaborate story of ‘the poor refugees’. As always there are two sides to every story, yet the other side has not been viewed to the public almost as if it has been censored.

I shall start with the tragedy of little Aylan. Now let’s start with the ‘left’ side of the story of a brave little boy trying to escape the clutches of a war torn country and doing everything he can to get to ‘safety’. That all sounds fine. But let’s switch the onus onto his father. Let’s say for example I took my little boy on a rubber dinghy and tried to sail across the Irish Sea to Dublin as I was trying to escape the disgusting corrupt government and countless paedophile rings in high society and needed to cross into the safety of Ireland as my reason? (Not too bad of a reason!) What would the ‘left’ side of the story be for that? I can see the headlines now “FATHER ENDANGERS CHILD’S LIFE IN DINGHY NIGHTMARE” I would have my child taken away from me as he is clearly not safe under my supervision and I would have completely put his life in jeopardy, in doing so I would probably be tried and convicted of gross negligence for my actions. I’m not saying what happened isn’t bad, what i’m saying is if the father really cared about his son, he would have thought a bit more about his life and taken a different route, maybe across land through Turkey? I understand the desperation and what it does to people but your kids come first and you have a responsibility for that child. Not at one point should you put them in danger just to get to your ‘end goal’.

Next I would just like to brush on the subject of who is actually trying to claim asylum. Now checking on the latest figures for % of refugees that are men, it says that 49.5% are male of that 29% are aged 18-59. Bearing in mind that these figures are for the registered refugees, which as we’ve seen a large share of them haven’t been properly documented and registered. Stories of ripped up passports and faking passports are rife as refugees pass on the word that Syrians are getting treated differently. Going by these statistics it’s astonishing that whenever I see any footage on any of the major networks, the majority of refugees I see are men. The ones always causing trouble, men. The ones breaking police lines and rioting, men. The ones pouring away water and throwing away food kindly given to them, men. The ones travelling all the way to Denmark & Calais trying to get into England and Sweden, men. It’s a slightly alarming trend. It’s also a trend that will come back to bite the liberals in the arse when the next up to date statistics are released. We are lucky in the UK having the opt-out clause for the relocation quota set by Brussels. I’m slightly concerned that these aren’t genuine refugees at all, they’re just opportunists. I’ve got a question that will anger and ensnare the lefties, if these men are willing to go to such lengths and to fight all of the forces across Europe like in Hungary & Denmark, why are they not fighting ISIS and trying to gain control of their country back?

If you go by the UN’s figures there are currently 3.8 million Syrian refugees, predicted to rise to 4.2 million by the end of this year. Roughly 1/4 of these are men, that means almost 1 million. You’re telling me that 1 million men couldn’t join up to defeat ISIS? They are weak minded cowards. That’s what sets us apart, they expect everything on a plate and to take priority in the world as they’ve been effected. No strength of character, no fight. The only thing I see is intelligence, they have identified the EU as an easy picking. Good healthcare and benefit systems and a ‘safety net’ because of the EU’s left leaning. Also because of the left leaning there is no integration plans or lessons to refugees as we can’t tell them what to do, which is disgraceful in my eyes. All these people know is war, uncivilised society, raping and pilaging, if that’s all they’ve seen and are angered about it, who are they going to take it out on if they haven’t stayed to fight ISIS? It will be the nice appeasing west who try and be nice and give them a life. There is no structure in place to explain they need to live by our rules now they are here, any uncivilised action will not be tolerated and they should be taught how to live as we do and how to properly integrate. Instead all you will see is more and more crime in the built up refugee areas, a higher % of rapes in these areas (already seen in large numbers in Sweden) more violence between them and the native population. Now as I say this i’m not tarring them all with the same brush, a lot of this doesn’t represent about half of the refugee population, the nice law abiding women and children most likely. The problem with this being they get away with it as there is a fear among the EU states that they will be seen as racist if they act accordingly.

Here’s a quick history lesson for you nice folk reading this, the EU was designed at the fall of the Second World War to be the end of all wars in Europe between France and Germany as they had fought relentlessly for the past few centuries back and forth. An ‘ever closer union’ was envisaged. It was only created to work for about 8 states, not the 28/29 that we have now. In an age where the EU is no longer called for and has been seen to be failing and crumbling for last few decades, it is not designed to be a Union of States that can cope with such an influx of immigration from an ever expanding Asian, Arabic & African populations. If it wasn’t working before then why are we even beginning to think it’s possible to deal with this crisis while the very same infrastructure is at breaking point? The whole time people are saying ‘why can’t we help them?’, what about us? Surely we should be concentrating on fixing our own broken system first before taking these people in. This very same point has infuriated me for many years, take Libya for example. The public were saying we need to do something to help these poor people under Gadaffi’s tyranny. We take action and take the fucker out, then the public blame the government saying we shouldn’t have intervened and it’s our fault all these refugee’s are displaced. I call it the two-headed monster of Liberalism. To be fair we have seen it coming for a while, being a supporter of UKIP I have expressed my concern of our open borders policy before any of this started.

Then you look at the open arm policy of Germany & Merkel, failing to take into consideration the massive overwhelming number of refugees that would actually turn up. The only problem with this being that once they have come to Germany and find out there is no room for them as they’re full up (which has happened now) they’re then stuck in the EU with no place to go. Merkel has politically shrugged her shoulders and gone well they’re here now, my solution is to offload the burden onto the other member states who never asked for it through a refugee quota that is soon to be enshrined in EU law. I will literally have no sympathy for Germany if there are any terrorist attacks inside their borders from now on, in my eyes they have brought that on themselves. They haven’t properly checked and registered all of these refugees flooding through their borders and haven’t got a fucking clue who is now in their country. I’ve seen lots of different figures so far but the average is about 420,000 already in Germany with Merkel citing that they should expect up to 800,000 by the end of the year. I think yet again she’s highly underestimated the number of people being displaced, and with her publicly saying they are all welcome she doesn’t have any idea how many hopeless refugees this will attract. The number I quoted of 3.8 million from Syria is for now. It is thought that half of Syria’s 22 million population will be refugees by the end of next year. Meaning that the figure of 4.2 million by the end of this year will be more than doubled by the end of next year. So I ask Mrs Merkel, where are we going to put the other 6-7 million next year? The fact is she hasn’t even looked that far ahead, she is in reactive mode not a proactive mode. She’s giving a temporary solution to a permanent problem.

The only bit of good that has come from this is the Egyptian(?) billionaire i’ve heard is willing to buy an island in Greece to home the refugees until the conflict has finished. He’s even planning on calling it Aylan Island, what a nice touch. But for me this begs an even bigger question, what have Saudi Arabia done? The richest of the OPEC states, which is roughly 150km from the Syrian border and a lot closer than the EU! It is also a muslim country so no integration needed. When the conflict finishes, if it ever does then it isn’t far for the refugees to relocate back to. Also having all that oil money means they could facilitate all of these refugees, in fact i’ve seen stories of the tents that millions are using for their annual pilgrimage to Mecca. Why can’t they house the refugees there? They have the money and resources to do so, why is the pressure on us to look after them. We are not a neighbouring country, we are not muslim states, we don’t have the money or facilities, we are already overpopulated and definitely don’t have the space. Whereas Saudi Arabia has all of this plus endless desert to create new towns to accommodate these refugees? Before anyone tries to shoot that down saying ‘how can you house them in the desert?’ Look at a fucking map, it’s almost identical to Syria’s landscape and climate so it’s not unreasonable. It’s not like it’s not ‘safe’ either considering it’s spending on defence is through the roof, buying up US jets and weapons. People citing their poor human rights record as a reason are the same people standing up for ‘Islam the religion of peace’, surely then they would open up their arms for their muslim brothers and not lay a finger on them? Islam is flawed and outdated, and in the wrong hands/eyes is a dangerous ideology. Maybe what happened in Mecca the other day was vicious karma for Saudi Arabia’s short comings and failures? Make your own conclusions from what happened, that’s just my cynical view of it.

This moves me onto alternative routes of migration. Until this quota came out Finland, Spain & Portugal have received hardly any asylum applications. This points directly to my earlier sentiment that they are literally just going to Sweden, Germany and the UK for the healthy benefits packages. If you’re prepared to go all the way to Sweden which is possibly the furthest away nation in the EU to travel to from Syria (apart from Norway) then why can’t you make the distance to Spain or Portugal? Or even closer Finland? Simple answer they have nothing to offer. Maybe they weren’t brought up with the saying ‘beggars can’t be choosers’. Which is one thing I hope they begin to learn from us! I’m sorry but if you are ‘fleeing’ to safety then you shouldn’t get a choice as long as you get to safety. They are abusing the laws in place for refugees that give them free passage. To me it’s outrageous as the whole point of free movement between EU states is that you are from a EU native state. Yet these people from outside the EU are getting the same rights making it void. Also due to the number of them, passport checks are few and far between and also not very well documented, so anyone could get through potentially even from other countries like Afghanistan or Pakistan.

The only EU leader that is speaking any sense is the Hungarian PM Viktor Orban, he’s the only one who has stood up against Germany in what he calls their ‘moral imperialism’. Which draws an interesting parallel, if you think about it Germany has in effect taken over Europe without a single shot being fired. They impose their ideas on the smaller member states that don’t have any clout and Germany has the biggest voice so it drowns out all opposition to it’s ‘solution’. The Eastern European members of the EU are mainly not in favour of the relocation program but are having it imposed on them as they are finally realising the downside to the ‘ever closer union’. The EU is on it’s knees in so many ways and I for one am watching closely for it’s downfall and i’m hoping this is the catalyst. Luckily, the UK is in a unique position where we already have a referendum coming on the exit of the EU and it wouldn’t rock the boat as much as a full member leaving. I’m disappointed that Greece hasn’t left the EU yet, same as Spain or Italy as it will kick start the domino effect. It’s better to be on the outside than inside, especially at a time like this. It perfectly highlights the constraints of being inside the EU, I want us to take back control of this country and fight for what is right! Then we take back the small things like control of our seas where the EU has been over-fishing and depleted fish populations and destroying underwater eco systems.

It doesn’t matter where you sit in this whole debate, only time will tell who is right and I hope for all your sake’s it’s me who is right. Mainly because if we carry on blindly behind Germany there will be nothing left to fight over. There is no one safeguarding our countries, institutions, traditions & cultures. We are at risk of losing all of this through overpopulating and excessive integration. Use your head and at least go into this with your eyes open and understand the severity of the situation that faces ALL of us. We have a right to be cautious and shouldn’t accept everyone willingly at the drop of a hat because some fat old woman in Germany says we should do so. We make our own choices and decisions and we think for ourselves. It doesn’t all add up and that should scare the absolute hell out of you, if it doesn’t then you’re already lost to their cause.
