The Trump Scalpel

The Trump Scalpel continues its vital work, lancing the nasty boil of political correctness, gradually removing the cabalistic veil which hides the identities of those who control the media, politicians and other assorted worms.

Already, in the US, mental health workers and therapists are reporting business is booming as the poison is released - one therapist said, "I have people I have not seen in literally 30 years that have called me to come back in because of trauma... I am more than full. I am overworking."

The hysterical wimmin who demonstrated in the US and UK streets after Mr Trump's election victory will now be able to get help and return to sanity.

Details of recent events at Charlottesville, Virginia are not clear from where I'm sitting, but here in the UK we know only too well how the media manipulate similar events to create and reinforce a bad image of the so called - but rarely defined - 'far-right' in the minds of a gullible public.

We have seen it all before - photographs of gatherings, demonstrations and 'marches', selected specifically to show a single violent looking skinhead with a Union Jack tattoo as if representative of the gathering as a whole.

Whatever the composition of the 'alt-right' crowd at Charlottesville, we cannot assume they were all neo-Nazis or KKK members, just as their desire to prevent the removal of the statue of Robert E. Lee doesn't mean they are campaigning for the reintroduction of slavery in the South.

Similarly in the UK when the BNP, EDL or similar groups exercise their legal right to hold public demonstrations, the rag-bag of communists, Black Lives Matter and other violent deplorables that make up the so-called 'antis' turn up to unleash violence in what would have been a quiet public event or reasoned debate.

Media reports which follow are always written in such a skillful and persuasive way as to suggest that the 'right-wing' groups are solely to blame for violence, disorder and chaos, with no blame of the antis poking their noses in and physically attacking demonstrators.

I remember in 2008 the enormous mob that turned up at the annual BNP Red, White and Blue rally in some private fields in rural Derbyshire, confronting attendees and attempting to block their path.

One attendee was a Times newspaper reporter and I asked if she would acknowledge the negative role of the antis and their antisocial disruption in her forthcoming article, adding that if I stood outside Times HQ and tried to stop her getting in whilst threatening violence, I would - rightly - expect to have it mentioned in the paper.

I do not recollect seeing a similar criticism in her article of the antis at that RWB event.

Of course, America has a different social climate than we do, their laws on free speech are different to ours and loose labels like 'neo-Nazi', 'white supremacy' and 'KKK' may have a different resonance to us.

People who have concerns about the damaging imposition of multiculturalism, multiracialism and 'diversity' upon the traditional culture and identity of their society should be able to protest and debate the rights and wrongs of such, without being vilified as Nazis, fascists etc.

In the US there are genuine fears about progress (or lack of it) in areas of high Afro-American or Hispanic populations, fears properly raised by alt-right groups.

We are all still suffering from the banking crisis triggered in 2008 after predominantly black Americans were unable to repay sub-prime mortgages as their neighbourhoods declined (we can thank Obama for that initiative).

As to white supremacy, I have searched long and hard for past contributions to art, science, literature and democracy from the indigenous folk of sub-Saharan Africa or those in the Middle and Far East, but with modest success.

At a Trump Tower press conference on Tuesday Mr Trump reiterated his perfectly reasonable point that people "on many sides" were to blame for the violence.

During that live TV broadcast he was getting well into his magnificent stride, lambasting the assembled hacks, when suddenly the TV channel switched without warning or explanation to a live broadcast of a dismal Theresa May speech on the Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier - what a contrast!

Why should saying "people on many sides" be problematical? But of course, political correctness - where the 'truth' is not true - beats political incorrectness - where the truth is real - so the result was predictable.

The failure of multiracialism and enforced diversity has to be hidden, whatever the cost.
