Red Cross To Be Renamed Red Swastika?

November 16, 2014
Another once respected charity abandones its mission to focus on promoting bosses left wing political agenda.

The Red Cross is getting some well deserved stick after sacking 71 year old Brian Barkley, a volunteer for over twenty years. His crime was to have an opinion that differed from the politically correct dogma espoused by the self righteous, self interested left wing troughers who line their pockets via generous expenses and salaries for running the charity. .

Mr. Barkley, was seen by the Politically Correct Thought Police while protesting against gay marriage outside Wakefield Catheral. He was not involved in Red Cross activities nor was he in any way identifying himself as a member of The Red Cross.

A motion has been tabled in the House of Commons expressing “deep concern” at Barkley’s treatment and urging the charity to reinstate him.

Coalition for Marriage (C4M), which led the campaign against redefining marriage in the United Kingdom, says that it has received nearly 50,000 messages in support of Mr. Barkley and that many people are considering boycotting the charity. (I’d like to join the boycott but I have boycotted The Red Cross for years, ever since I found out how much of the money we donate directly or via out taxes is taken up by the generous salaries and bonuses the scumsuckers management pay themselves.)

Newspaper reports state that Mr Barkley had been photographed mounting a one-man protest outside Wakefield Cathedral, holding a placard reading “No same-sex marriage”, in May this year after the gay weddings took place in the UK. This is still allegedly a free country and he is antitled to his opinion. as in so many other recent cases, nobody seems to have told the authoritarian left what free speech actually means.

The Red Cross summoned him before a disciplinary panel where he was told his actions went against the group’s values.

A spokesman for C4M said that although Mr Barkley has not called for a boycott of the Red Cross, he does remain “deeply upset” at his treatment after working with it for many years.

However, the charity said in a statement that it did not dismiss Mr Barkley “specifically for his views on same sex marriage”, although it did fear his stance would have a “negative impact on the way its services are delivered to a particular community.”

Colin Hart of C4M is not impressed, though. He said: “This is a shocking case – Bryan was a senior volunteer, undertaking very complicated and technical work for the Red Cross.

“For nearly two decades he helped to reunite people with lost family members. Yet after voicing his opposition to the Government’s undemocratic plans to rip up the traditional definition of marriage he was fired.

“He broke no law and his only crime seems to have been that he was one of the millions of ordinary people who opposed this change. There has never been any suggestion that Mr Barkley acted inappropriately while at the charity, or even pushed his views while volunteering.

“Indeed just 24 hours before he was notified of a disciplinary meeting, he attended a garden party at Buckingham Palace with other volunteers, employees and supporters of this organisation.”

The Red Brigade Cross has responded, by whining self righteously and hypocritically that Mr Bickley’s supporters are distracting the organisation from its work dealing with international disasters.

A spokeswoman said: “The British Red Cross is working internationally tackling enormous issues like the Ebola crisis, Syria and the food crisis in South Sudan.

“Orchestrated actions like this inevitably divert us from our humanitarian mission.”

In response to the final two statements above Boggart Blog asks and how do the Red Cross hypocrites feel about their ‘humanitarian mission’ helping people in South Sudan, Syria or the nations affected by the ebola crisis who believe homosexuals should be stoned to death. Because that, I have read, is the majority view in those societies.

The Great British rake-off… what really happens to the billions YOU donate to charity

The figures are astonishing. There are more than 195,289 registered charities in the UK that raise and spend close to £80 billion a year. Together, they employ more than a million staff – more than our car, aerospace and chemical sectors – and make 13 billion ‘asks’ for money every year, the equivalent of 200 for each of us in the UK.

But many charities have become hungry monsters, needing ever more of our money to feed their own ambitions. And while registered charities claim that almost 90p in every pound donated is spent on ‘charitable activities’, many spend at least half their income on management, strategy development, campaigning and fundraising – not what most of us would consider ‘good causes [Continue reading]

Brand Plays A Blinder

November 8, 2013

I never thought I’d say this but Russell Brand is playing a blinder. The self proclaimed prolific shagger, official jester to the metrosexual left, quasi – Dickensian cheeky chappie and fan of David Icke has, almost single handedly, made it respectable to dissent from the government line again. He has become a hate figure for both left and right after his outburst against the ineffectual nature of the failed political system, the corporate and scientific hijacking of public debate, government, the legal system, education and the media (the science is never settled guys, not now, not ever, never so shut the fuck up or take your insane cult of Scientism to Crazifornia, the home of post modern idiocy).

Now normally I would rather sup surströmming from a shit shovellers salopette than watch Russell, I don’t think narcissism as comedy is funny, but having pissed off both the left and right simultaneously he must be onto something.

The left are sneering at Brand’s naïveté in wanting to talk about corruption in high places, the unhealthy influence wielded by banks on society and other ‘trivial’ issues instead of understanding that the most important things society has to deal with are gay rights, equality for paedophiles and the scrapping of all immigration controls. The political right are raging that Brand is just another media luvvie playing at being a leftie to get a ride on the politically correct bandwagon.

In fact he is neither, what Russell Brand has been advocating is far more radical, he is talking about real liberalism bordering on anarchy. While the neo Nazis of the Lib Dems, Labour and the Cameronist wing of the Conservatives are talking about authoritarianism disguised with a veneer of political correctness, Brand and conspiracy theorists like David Icke are talking about real genuine individual freedom, the freedom to think for ourselves (and not least the freedom to promote themselves). The kind of freedom that will defend those who oppose uncontrolled immigration against charges of racism, who are against legalising same sex marriage against charges of homophobia (fear of the same thing?) or call for our withdrawal from the EU against accusations of being Little Englanders. A true liberal believes everybody has a right to express their own opinion, rather than just to repeat the opinions approved by the establishment and printed or broadcast by establishment / corporate controlled media.

Though never a fan of fan of the pre – Raphaelite featured comedian I find myself in sympathy with him as he faces hate attacks from all sides. The hate campaign has as always been led by the conformist left whose polemical ravings about Brand’s narcissistic belief that he has the right to speak for the left, yoof, the future, etc., although the traditional right have not been far behind. But Russell Brand has not elected himself, he has been co – opted by default, by the vacuum at the core of British politics. He is speaking for some of the most alienated and disenfranchised groups because, fearful of offending the Politically Correct Thought Police, nobody in the political establishment will step up and speak for them.

In the same way Nigel Farage has become the unofficial and unelected spokesman for the traditional Conservative constituency while George Galloway sometimes acts as the voice of the traditional Labour voter. More mainstream politicians, in their desperation to “engage with minorities” have abandoned the heartlands and are far too ready to dismiss the concerns of white, straight, cultural Christian, middle and working class voters as “bigotry”.

After Brand’s demolition of lefty bully boy Paxman on BBC’s Newsnight, which followed a similar demolition of the cliché spouting presenters of an American political talkshow a few weeks earlier it would be dangerous to assume we have discovered a new political messiah. What Russell Brand has done is expose the intellectually bankruptcy of both left and right, their total inability to propose anything that looks remotely like a solution to our problems (a return to the borrow and spend economics of the past twenty years will only achieve our total enslavement to the Debt Baron Rothschild clan and further austerity will lead to deflation higher unemployment and eventually to more borrowing and our enslavement by the debt barons.

Now someone has stood up and said these things will our political leaders understand they have lost touch with the voters or will they whine wimpishly about how overwhelmingly important it is, compared to trivialities like economics, jobs, ending conflict and shaking off the yoke of the debt barons that we make sure bearded queens in bridal gowns are getting what they want.

There’s Irony For You – Welsh Wonder Batters Thought Police

January 23, 2010

This week we have had one lot of scientists telling us to banish butter from our lives while another bunch are telling us processed fats are food from the dark side.

Isn’t it wonderful that in the week when the food and drink branch of the Politically Correct Thought Police have gone into orbit about our reluctance to give up tasty food and live on a fat free, taste free diet for the sake of our health, britain’s oldest working woman has dies aged 102.

And what Mrs. Connie Brown work as?

For 80 years she had worked in the chip shop she opened with her late hubby back in nthe days when cod and chips cost three ha’pence and Elephants were sevenpence for twenty. People who knew her said Connie, aka The Codmother (cue haunting melody played on mandolins) always enjoyed aportion of battered cod with chips from her shop’s industrial capacity deep fat fryers. She was admitted to hospital for the first time in her life only hours before she died.

So much for fatty food sending us to an early grave (story: Daily Telegraph.
