More in common with Prince Harry

I’m not a fan or a royalist, I’m not writing this for any other reason than posterity. For this particular purpose we have more in common than that which divides us, if the news reports are anything to go by. A group of nazis on the internet have been tracked down and arrested for terror offences against the prince and his exotic bride. Members of the atomwaffen/sonnenkrieg division, an American neo nazi gaming site have made threats to kill Prince Harry for being a ‘race traitor’. A 17 year old from London, 18 year old from Portsmouth and 21 year old from Bath have been arrested although they deny the charges.

Atomwaffen, like the nazi site kiwi farms, is a forum for emotionally/developmentally stunted caucasian males (and the odd East Asian and Jew who’ve identified whiteness as the ultimate get out of jail card) who can’t get laid and live in their mum’s basement, spanking their marmoset furiously over a dream they’re going to genocide people of colour some day (as if that would give any meaning to their worthless amoebic lives). Atomwaffen, like the neo nazi site kiwi farms, is linked to the murders of multiple victims, including Blaze Bernstein, a 19 year old Jewish student who was brutally slain whilst visiting his parents. Samuel Woodward, a former classmate and member of atomwaffen was arrested and charged with murder.

The parallels between atomwaffen and kiwi farms are clear to see, not least of all the troubling body count. I find it hard to believe authorities would have allowed men of colour forums in which they described murder and sexual abuse of white women for even a short while, yet groups like kiwi farms and atomwaffen have been given the freedom to propagate sexual violence against women of colour and incitement to murder and even terrorism without so much as a ripple from those who have the power to make them stop. If West Midlands police had done something in 2014, when I reported stacks of racist rape and death threats against me by nazi gamers, perhaps they wouldn’t have proliferated so exponentially and been so emboldened as to threaten a prince. I mean, they really believe their own hype. To be fair, consequences have been a little thin on the ground, in that there have been none. Perhaps these fledgling nazis are so confident in the support they receive from the establishment, the justice system and media they actually believe they are more powerful than a prince who is 6th in line to the British throne. When you look at the ways in which the media presents Meghan Markle, how it portrays her as a thorn in Kate’s side, drip feeding unfavourable quotes from ‘sources close to the royal family’ (probably that golliwog wearing climber of kent or even that racist old fart in law, so many to choose), they are telling the world she is an outsider, and we know they mean cos she’s black.

When scores of teenagers were getting ill and dying as a result of thinspiration styled sites encouraging starvation and self harm, campaigners were able to get those sites banned. No free speech nazis demanding the right to be indoctrinated by harmful gurus and being validated and yet when we bring up the subject of nazi incel forums and how hate speech is not free speech, we get shut down because the people who have the power to change things are white men and they have more in common with pubescent nazis than they do with the women of colour they target.

Take for example the BBC’s decision to publish an image that Atomwaffen nazis made depicting Harry getting a shot to head with the caption ‘race traitor’. The image was taken down after a complaint from the royal household. It was argued that the BBC were giving unnecessary exposure to an item that could compromise the safety of the royal couple. I quite agree, those who persistently platform nazi propaganda are collaborators at the very least. The BBC have in the past allowed a member of the public to flaunt his swastika tattoo without challenge from the presenters. They have consistently favoured fascists like Farage, platforming him more times that the other party leaders combined in the run up to the last general election.

Harry has the power to do something and demand accountability. He’s come some way from the nazi armband wearing youth who perhaps regrets his past. It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out and whether the powers that be are ready to admit they failed to do their jobs and all in the name of white supremacy.

Harry Leslie Smith: A Hero for All Ages

It’s not often I cry at the news, get angry yes, feel afraid too but not so common to feel deep in the pit of my stomach gutted, for all that is lost and will never be. I felt that way when Leonard Cohen passed away and here I am again, with the devastating news that Harry Leslie Smith, a world war veteran exemplifying the best in human nature has died at the age of 95.

Harry Leslie Smith grew up in poverty and provided firsthand accounts of the inequality he witnessed over the course of almost a century. Whether he was describing the TB his sister succumbed to whilst the king of England received the best in care for his lung cancer or the hellscape he encountered during and after the war, it was honest and powerful and spoke to a wide section of people. I had no patience for the weasels who’d attack him on Twitter for standing up for refugees. Or the trolls who preferred their seniors frail and tucked up in bed and bullied Harry and his family for his active lifestyle, promoting his work and visiting refugees to highlight their plight. Although I’m not one to espouse respect for your elders without condition, I took it personally when these bigots targeted him. They were attacking his legitimacy as an advocate for the poor and needy because he was so effective, slandering him is all they had. It was my duty to shut them up. Harry always liked those tweets where I stood up for him and I’m glad that he knew there were people who appreciated everything he was doing.

Harry was a special human being because he’d been there and seen it with his own eyes, things none of us should ever have to see and his heart broke instead of turning to stone. He was a white man and it would have been so easy for him to ignore the hardship and suffering of others. He’d have had a much easier life if he’d chosen to only care about himself and his loved ones but he didn’t. He made hard choices, even when they were detrimental to him. He was brave and he was strong and the world will be poorer without him in it.

Harry Leslie Smith was proof that human kindness is timeless, that there are no excuses for Churchill’s genocides. He was ‘from a different era’, ‘things were different back then’, of course ‘it was another time’, but he wasn’t a hateful murderous sod, ever. Harry was proof that white people can do better and when they don’t, that is their choice. We couldn’t ignore history for as long as he was around to remind us. Now we must honour his memory and keep it alive for future generations.

I don’t know what, if anything, happens when we die but I *hope* he is ecstatic to be reunited with his wife and his other son and they are drinking champagne and toasting his long and remarkable life together.

RIP good sir, your efforts will never be forgotten.

Sex abuse is synonymous with power

CN – Sex Abuse

Another day, another slew of reports on sexual predators facing justice in our criminal justice system, and how some of them evade it. The use of scare quotes for eg can suggest the reporter is scornful of the information being relayed or that it is has struck a chord with them, and is throwing it out there for the reader to make up their own mind. By introducing an element of doubt, by questioning the use of particular words they cast shadows on the validity of the interviewee’s opinion. The mainstream media don’t so much as report the news, or uncover grave injustices, they shape it, they can fashion it out of thin air. How would you know otherwise, unless you were there at the time? You don’t believe everything you read, do you?

20181115_183758‘Committed paedophile’ PC Ian Naude was convicted today of raping a 13 year old girl in the back of his car and filming the attack. He also pleaded guilty to 31 other offences including misconduct in public office and grooming of other teenage girls, one of whom threatened to kill herself. What’s particularly harrowing about this case is how Naude was due to start as a junior officer in 2017 but the process was put on hold when an allegation of rape was made against him. I believe them, and the authorities perhaps should have done too but no further action was taken and the recrutiment process was continued.

Thinking back to my work as a support worker for women fleeing male violence, the standards that must be satisified in order for a case to make it to the CPS are as much about whether or not a victim is telling the truth as they are about evidence against the perpetrator. Surely PC Naude would have been required to undertake a CRB check before he was permitted to interact with members of the public? They take a while to process for non police related professions, about 3 months, but the police have access to multiple systems including POVA and other registers for the protection of vulnerable children and adults they can check before the official papers come back. Odd then that the police authority failed to notice the two child grooming allegations naming him reported to Staffs and West Mercia police in 2017.

A persistent and ‘committed paedophile’, Naude was able to bypass security checks that should have flagged him up as a concern before he was ever recruited. He should never have been allowed to interact with members of the public least of all vulnerable minors who were looking to him for protection. He is not the first and he won’t be the last. The police should just stop expecting the public to trust in them when they cannot guarantee our safety in their presence.

Who can we trust? We can’t trust the police, who seem disproportionately represented in sexual and domestic violence statistics, they offend at a rate 5 times higher than the national average. We can’t trust the media, they spent decades watching and covering up Britain’s nasty treasures, and crawled out of the woodwork post Savile to confirm they had seen it all unfold but that stopped rather abruptly when we turned on them for being such useless complicit witnesses to horrific child abuse. I would suggest it’s one of the reasons they stay focused on Asian grooming gangs. The racist outrage and plots for revenge are all consuming, there’s no space to think about anything else. With propaganda focused on predatory savages, the police, media, government and all their collaborators got a get out of jail free card.

I suppose Lord Lester is so self assured in this scheme he can approach Asian survivors of violence like Jasvinder Sanghera (an inspiration to many women like myself) who founded the Karma Nirvana project in 1993 to provide culturally specific support to women experiencing domestic violence, and promise her a peerage if she slept with him. He groped her and chased her around his kitchen, after offering a place to stay when she missed the last train home. They had been working on changing the law to make forced marriage an offence, back in 2006. I remember that project, I too was involved in a small way when the Asian refuge I was working in invited members of the house of lords to come see the crucial work we were doing with women who had no recourse to public funds. I am utterly disgusted by the revelations that one of ours was being harassed and assaulted by the very people we were appealing to for social justice.

20181115_183730

I believe Jasvinder Sanghera. I am not at all surprised however that there are people including Lord Lester himself, saying she is a liar. What kind of a world do we live in when a trusted and upstanding member of a network that protects victims is being framed as dishonest? “I was acutely aware of the power imbalance”, she said “If I’d said anything, who would believe me?” She felt all the same things all victims do, even with her CBE and many awards and accolades. She has waived her right to anonymity because she continues to stand for all women, in every way she can.

She is going to need support, especially as it seems the establishment are doubling down. How on earth do we contend with the all powerful, those with such a blatant disregard for common people, who use their punitive powers to cast aspersions on victims and survivors? Jasvinder herself has said she feels as though she “has been victimised all over again”. Power has asserted itself.

They can frame it however they like, the mainstream media and politicians, we know different. They’ll print an article here, and another there, news they can’t afford to ignore but they won’t join the dots to expose the network, not like they do with Asian grooming gangs. There’s no middle page spread on the privileged establishment old boy networks running through the centre of all public services, because they run all the papers too. They’ll throw the odd working class monster to the dogs, for balance, but won’t ever report on the pervasive and far reaching sickness of familial child abuse, the most common of all sex abuses in the United Kingdom. You are more likely to be raped by your father or brother or uncle than you are ever to come in contact with an Asian grooming gang.

The problem is too huge to take care of one sector at a time. Instead we need a class war and survivors must take the lead.

This is what silencing looks like

They said they might not like what I say but they’d defend to the death my right to say it, except they lied.

Nothing compares to the truth

Sinead O Connor says white people are disgusting and she wants nothing more to do with them and that is her right as a white person and citizen of a country that prides itself on free speech. I’ve lost count of the times I said Pakistanis are disgusting though I have to admit it’s been a fair while since I did. Growing up it was my party trick, to show everyone how much I was not like all the others I’d stroke their egos, demonstrating my eagnerness and willingness to please with my local accent and knowledge of pop culture. I beamed with pride when a random girl on the bus complimented my accent as being so Brummy, you could never tell (that I was a Paki?) and when assorted friends rewarded my compliance, (which often translated into unabashed verbal paki bashing) with praise for how much I was not like all the others, I lapped it up, convinced this endorsement would save me from the racists. I resented it even at the time but I hadn’t fully realised the extent to which I would grow to abhor my own cowardice. I performed like the proverbial monkey, unaware, or perhaps unwilling to recognise the power play, reinforcing my lowly status every time I entered into this dance with my alleged superiors.

When Sinead O’Connor talks about disgusting white people I know who she means. It’s those people I felt compelled to please. I met L when I was 15, as a runaway, isolated, stuck in a rut, desperate for interaction. We were like chalk and cheese and not in that good opposites attract way. Up until my escape I’d been a straight A student and prided myself on learning and bettering myself. I had to dumb myself down so L wouldn’t feel like I was showing off. She was aggressive, using her body to push you where she wanted you. She wasn’t particularly big, just white. It was a feature of our friendship, to constantly reiterate how I’d managed to do well for myself, being friends with these white people on a council estate in Northolt when my folks were so alien and unworthy. She wasn’t the last white person to make me feel this way, I almost married another one. He said very early on in our relationship that he would only say it once but I might be smarter than him. I guess I could have spoken up, if I wasn’t paralysed from fear at the time, when he barked up my street at 3am it was his country and he’d talk as loud as he’d like, when I asked him to keep it down because people were sleeping. I was disgusted with his behaviour but didn’t locate my backbone until the relationship ended and I could finally be honest with myself. In the end I was grateful for the lesson, how white people will use a single person of colour to shield themselves against accusations of racism, all the while exerting unchecked white privilege to say and do as they please with no consequences.

These white people behaved in disgusting ways, and they are by no means the exception. When I said Pakistanis were disgusting I was reacting to the microaggressions we absorb as soon as we are able to verbalise. The racialised system of deserving and undeserving which places Pakistanis at the very bottom, in Asia but also the world. We are a slur weaponised against all South Asians, even non Asian Muslims. I had the impression Pakistani men were the most lecherous, the most violent, until I started working in domestic violence services. It was a long process but once I had made the decision to let the veil drop I was coasting. It was so much easier for me to be anti racist, to listen and go with my gut. So much less stress. Of course this means conflict is almost a permanent feature of my life but I’m nobody’s bitch. Being your own person of colour, respecting your past and acknowledging the hurdles your ancestors took for you to exist today, that’s empowering. Shaking the white gaze away from your eyes to see the strength of character and sheer bloody mindedness it took to survive the barbaric British empire, when it set out to destroy our cultures and peoples and very nearly succeeded, is catharthic and goes a little way to heal the fractures in our psyche.

I no longer think of Pakistanis as disgusting but broken and doing the best we can. We were and still are treated disgustingly by disgusting people wearing whiteness like armour against criticism of their inhumane and savage treatment of non whites. If you’re white and you found Ms O’Connor’s comments disgraceful consider the following:

You are a racist. A revisionist. A liar. A fake.

I thank Sinead O’Connor for having the courage to speak up in these threatening times. By making herself a target she takes some of the heat off the usual punching bags, and gives marginalised people everywhere a smidgen of hope that things are slowly changing, the world is righting itself.

White Supremacy Kills Jews

The police have launched an investigation into allegations of antisemitism in the Labour Party, an extraordinary feat considering they are usually too frightened to do anything about other pressing societal issues like establishment child sex abuse (lest they upset the ethnics for their cultural practices) and tory electoral fraud, which is oh so politically sensitive (and might get them sacked). A dossier was handed to the police by an LBC journalist, those bastions of anti racist activism. I’ve tried to report racism to the cops before but been on the wrong end of a white supremacist agenda and somehow ended up being warned for my political beliefs, because I could kill all the men without batting an eyelid, obviously.

It’s been almost a week since I was suspended from Twitter for calling a white supremacist a dirty rat. I haven’t stopped thinking about the 11 Jewish elders brutally murdered by a white supremacist. Robert Bowers, a white American male reported to have an online presence demonstrating a “vitriolic hatred of Jewish people and other bigotry” has pleaded not guilty to the murder of his 11 victims and although we all know he did it, recovering as he is from the multiple gunshots he sustained in the showdown with Pittsburgh police, in which a couple of officers were also injured, Bowers most likely believes he can get away with it. In what world could a man of colour shoot 11 people to death and injure law enforcement but still escape with their life intact, free to claim up is down an blame someone else for his barbaric actions? Not in this white man’s world. But Bowers is going to have a go. His white privilege will protect him, it has so far.

The white supremacist establishment have made themselves clear; racism against black and brown people does not exist but antisemitism is criminal behaviour. This will hurt Jews ultimately but 84% do not care about that currently, so long as those socialist bastards don’t get in. I wonder if the 84% are willing to consider a white supremacist killed 11 Jews because he is white and Jews are a threat to white supremacy. No? Not even out of respect for memory? Or personal safety? Of the 84% of Jews afraid of Corbyn’s socialist vision for all ethnicities, how many would consider themselves white? How many are European? How many are white passing?

Surely an interesting study to undertake given the implications of such an investigation by the police? That the people who suffer most as a result of ethno-religious conflict in Britain today is its minority of white passing Jews? Just not Muslims. Or travellers. Or black people. What an unpredictable twist. And by that I mean predictably twisted and untrue.

Gnasher Jew Emboldened Nazis

I am a survivor of child abuse. I am a survivor of multiple attempts to assault me, from the ages of 10 onwards. I have dedicated my life to ending sex abuse, and have been committed to it in my work and beyond. This is the kind of thing that is designed to trigger my CPTSD and harm me. I have no idea who this freak is.

Screenshot_20181030-165230_Samsung Internet

My family is split in to two camps, those who want to report familial abusers to the police and those who do not. The mother of my nephews falls into the latter camp. I am estranged from their mother, my twin sister, because she will not acknowledge the sex abuse I was subjected to, because it will impact on her life. That is all. She’s selfish. To suggest that I am a sex abuser, these people are telling me they want me to die. They want me to kill myself. The trauma of being targeted and not believed my entire life is being weaponised by these fucking monsters to kick me when I’m down. And Gnasher Jew enabled that. They don’t care about racism, only power. They don’t care about doing the right thing, they will happily cheer on my suicide if it means Labour do not win.

20181030_170823

I will tell people to vote Corbyn with my dying breath because it means smashing the likes of these to smithereens. So it’s victimhood when I object to being called a Paki but Fasher Jew got me suspended for calling him a rat?

20181030_170757

They are actually talking about Kiwi Farms as though they know and appreciate the Nazis who run the forum. They’re threatening people on their behalf. THIS is who the Jewish community has to look up to? No wonder there’s been so much distrust, so much bad blood. These people are not giving Jews a very good name. In fact, I would condemn them, if they were Muslims speaking on my behalf, I would clarify they do not operate in my name. They are fascists, they are monsters. They know no boundaries.

20181030_170833

I am an antifascist. I don’t know know what Gnasher Jew were doing in 2013 but I was standing with my comrades of multiple races and denominations against fascists who threatened our communities. I would never use nazi information, even against an enemy. That’s because I don’t TRUST Nazis. I take it as read they are venomous and most likely bullshitting. What kind of anti racist uses a Nazi forum as a reputable source?

gnasher

Gnasher and pals gloating after they had me suspended. If Twitter reinstates my account, you’ll see all the evidence for yourself.

(Update: I reported the libellous tweet to Twitter who said it did not violate their standards. I was suspended for calling someone a rat but this freakshow says I’m a child rapist and that’s fine?)
