For anyone unfamiliar with the Rotherham Report just do an on-line search for it and you can pick from countless articles. The report dealt with instances of over 1,400 young non-Muslim women being raped and groomed for further rape by Muslims in part of the U.K. Similar reports have emerged from other areas in the country. The report was first issued over 5 years ago.
Previously I wrote about the horrific specifics of the atrocities perpetrated on young women by the Muslims in the report. This time I’ll comment on the way the atrocities were enabled by U.K. bureaucrats, many of whom willfully ignored the complaints of the rape victims because the assailants were Muslim. Some of the bureaucrats have tried to excuse their actions (or rather their inaction) by plaintively whining that they “didn’t want to be accused of Islamophobia.” Continue reading
ISLAM IS SLAVERY
Every so often the world gets subjected to virtue-signaling, privileged white Western women who think they’re accomplishing something by dressing in the degrading body-bags that the patriarchal Muslim World imposes on women. Every time that happens I run this reminder:
UNTIL SUCH TIME AS ALL MUSLIM WOMEN ARE FREE TO MAKE THEIR OWN CHOICE ON THE MATTER, IT IS IRRELEVANT HOW MANY MUSLIM “STEPFORD WIVES” COME FORWARD TO PRETEND MUSLIM WOMEN ALL WEAR THOSE OUTFITS WILLINGLY.
I’m not just pro-choice on abortion – I’m pro-choice on the clothing issue, too. Privileged white leftists are too hypocritical for that. Especially given how they like to indulge in Handmaid’s Tale cosplay. Yeah, as if they would EVER have the courage to stand up to genuinely dangerous theocrats.
WANT TO HEAR FROM BRAVE MUSLIM WOMEN WHO POINT OUT THE DAMAGE POMPOUS WHITE WOMEN DO BY DONNING HIJABS? READ IT HERE AND HERE
This first item would normally go with one of my Faculty Lounge Fascist Roundups but since I just did one so recently I’ll include it here instead and also post the link there.
This item is further verification of the ugly way Democrats discriminate against anyone outside their political party and it plays a large part in the biased and viciously partisan approach used in colleges and universities. The bias and exclusionary hiring is so bad that at Cornell alone ELEVEN ENTIRE DEPARTMENTS have ZERO Republicans. That doesn’t happen by accident. Click HERE
And this second item is another piece from Quillette about the growing intolerance, mindless conformity and fascism of the American Left. Click HERE
Free Speech has been under assault by both Liberals and Conservatives in recent decades. There was a time when Liberals actively supported freedom of expression because they understood it was THE primary freedom from which all other freedoms flowed. The early figures from my own country’s history protected speech with the FIRST Amendment to the Constitution because they knew all too well that ideas that are considered taboo and offensive today might be considered essential truths by future generations.
The forever-hypocritical 1960s generation of American Liberals were all about Free Speech when THEIR ideas were the ones offending people. Once they considered themselves to be comfortably in the cultural, educational and political driver’s seat by the early 1990s they decided they wanted their own already outdated worldview enshrined in stone and presented as THE one true set of values.
They became the Political Correctness Police and anyone who offended their 1960s attitudes had to be silenced because – as they knew so well from their own experience – when controversial ideas are given the room to breathe they can often thrive. The totalitarian asses of the 1960s can’t bear the fact that younger people might have opinions that offend THEM as much as their opinions offended their parents’ generation.
And it’s not just in America. All around the world similar assaults on Freedom of Expression are being made. If Muslims are offended they want the offensive material banned, if authoritarian regimes like the one in China are offended they want the offensive material banned, and on and on it goes. Considering that the more easily offended someone is the less intelligent they tend to be I find it amazing that Politically Correct censorship has thrived the way it has.
Keep in mind Spinoza’s wonderful line “Every man should think what he likes and say what he thinks.” That still rings true because no matter what the hypersensitive fools who want to censor the rest of us find offensive NONE of them has the right to try to extinguish one single creation or product of a human mind.

Democrats: Muslims who don’t hate the Western World are useless to us!
You’ll never see self-adoring, virtue-signalling Leftist demagogues like Obama doing photo ops with Muslims who came to America to GET AWAY from the suffocating oppression of the Muslim World and the endless wars which Muslim groups have been waging against each other for over a thousand years.
Muslims are the new toys of the pompous, condescending Liberals (more like fascists) of the Western World. The ONLY Muslims who are useful to them are Muslims who say that America is “Islamophobic” (Oh, NO WONDER they want to come here in such large numbers) or (yawn) racist (Islam is not a race).
The symbol of the nonexistent Balladeer Political Party
You will NEVER see the political media giving air-time to Muslims who want to say “The West is not our enemy” or “Actually I find it fascinating to interact with so many non-Muslims. It’s really opened my mind.” and ESPECIALLY not “I came to America so my daughters can have more freedoms and pursue their own dreams.”
The most worn-out expression from the gutless zombies of American Liberalism or “Libero-fascism” is Western Triumphalism. Any and all Muslims who DON’T hate America or other Western nations get dismissed by the left-wing parties as Western Triumphalists who have “internalized Western Oppression.”
As always with the barely human robots of the political left members of ANY group they decide belongs to them can NOT be “the authentic voices” of that group UNLESS they express hatred of the U.S. and the U.K. etc. Oh, and unless they show mindless, unquestioning allegiance to the Democratic Party (U.S.) or Labour Party (U.K.).
Sadly those Muslims who flee the constant conflicts of the Middle East (which has been a war-torn mess ever since Islam entered the picture and destroyed enlightened Arab cultures) are the ones who have to hide from public exposure lest they be targeted by the violent Muslim fanatics. The Left’s approach mostly hurts the Muslims they pretend to be helping. But that never bothers the Privileged White Snobs of the Left. Continue reading
Here at Balladeer’s Blog I’ve written plenty about how disgusted I became with the way that American Liberalism (really “illiberalism”) has devolved into a faith-based belief system as irrational as any other religion. So for a change of pace I’m once again linking to an article by another disillusioned figure expressing such sentiments.
The link is below but first some quotes:
“On leaving the SJW cult and finding myself I’ve been undergoing a pretty significant change in the way I interpret the world and how to ‘be’ in it.”
“I see increasing numbers of so-called liberals cheering censorship and defending violence as a response to speech. I see seemingly reasonable people wishing death on others and laughing at escalating suicide and addiction rates of the white working class.
“I see liberal think pieces written in opposition to expressing empathy or civility in interactions with those with whom we disagree. I see Trump voters written off as “nazis” who are okay to target with physical violence. I see concepts like equality and justice being used as a mask for resentful, murderous rage.
“How easy is it for ordinary humans to commit atrocious acts? History teaches us it’s pretty damn easy when you are blinded to your own hypocrisy. When you believe you are morally superior, when you have dehumanized those you disagree with, you can justify almost anything. In a particularly vocal part of the left, justification for dehumanizing and committing violence against those on the right has already begun.
“Since shedding the prison of my former ideology, I have a renewed passion for reading, a newfound interest in philosophy, psychology, history and spirituality. Instead of trying to fix others, these days I try to focus on improving myself …” Continue reading
Yes, it’s once again Guy Fawkes Day, the day Balladeer’s Blog celebrates figures who became symbols of the exact opposite things they represented in their actual lives!
Guy Fawkes was a religious fanatic whose face became a symbol of resistance against a fictional theocratic dicatorship thanks to a comic book. Che Guevara was a murderous, homophobic, racist would-be dictator depicted as a symbol of youthful rebellion thanks to the spiteful cluelessness of Left-Wing Archie Bunkers.
Thank the forever-childish 1960s generation for elevating such a repulsive and barely human creature to such heights. Even at HUFFINGTON POST the truth about blood-soaked animal Che has been written. Click HERE
Here are some actual quotes from hatemonger Che:
“Go ahead and try them tomorrow morning — but execute them NOW!”
“Crazy with fury I will stain my rifle red while slaughtering any enemy that falls in my hands! My nostrils dilate while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood.”
“We don’t need proof to execute a man. We only need proof that it’s necessary to execute him. A revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate.” (Note from Balladeer: Gee, I thought the poseurs and buffoons of the American Left said they’re AGAINST “hate.”)
“What we affirm is that we must proceed along the path of liberation even if this costs millions of atomic victims.”
Read more of this animal’s own words and you will see what a callous, unfeeling political fanatic this hate-filled scumbag was. He never wanted to overthrow dictatorships to help “the people”, he just wanted to overthrow them to install dictatorships more to his liking.
In other words dictatorships that would let that bloodthirsty maniac kill as many people as he wanted. Che Guevara was a waste of biomass and was the exact opposite of what delusional and uninformed fools consider him to have been. Continue reading
