In the Age of Hurt Feelings there is no such thing as ‘free speech’

Despite what Emma Thompson may say, this ‘cake-filled, misery-laden, grey old island’ is actually a more than half-decent place to live. Most of the time, anyway. That it remains so is remarkable, given the provocations inflicted upon us by our political overlords. Here are three stories to make you weep.

  • Shebel

    Moving , ever forward – with great transparency into this vibrant new world of inclusion and diffusion …..
    Fuck them all.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Absolutely spot on!

  • BillyHW

    In an age of women’s suffrage, feelings rule the world.

    • Kathy Prendergast

      I am a woman, I vote, and I do not base my vote primarily on my “feelings”. So please take your sexist BS to somewhere it would be welcome, like Saudi Arabia.

      • Shebel

        horoscope ?

      • BillyHW

        Congratulations on your n = 1 result. (Barbie said math was hard.)

      • Alain

        Good to see that you are one of the exceptions and there are others, but generally that is not the case. I should add that nowadays one finds a good number of younger men who fall into the same category.

  • Shebel

    There is some thing seriously wrong—when , it does not even bother me to watch a Muslim child ,slowly cut the throat and behead a terrified human – but—
    It makes me puke to watch these Animals torture a doggy , a kitty , a donkey or a camel.
    These people are Not Human and neither is their evil Prophet.

    • Kathy Prendergast

      There is indeed something seriously wrong, if the former really doesn’t bother you.

    • Justin St.Denis

      I agree. When The Purge begins, many will have trouble wrapping their heads around the notion that not all apparently human beings are ACTUALLY human beings, and that there are INHUMAN BEINGS.

      Terminating the inhuman can hardly be called “radical” or even murder. Things to remember as you load another magazine…..

  • Shebel

    Name one Religion that runs around the World telling people how PEACEFUL they are.
    Name one Religion that NEEDS to Fool all of the people -All of the Time.

    The only people that think Islam is Peaceful are FOOLS or Muslims. or-
    Politicians that are afraid of you.

  • Shebel

    Every Country is beginning to have 2 sets of rules .
    One for Muslims
    The other for Citizens.

    This is more Crazy than a movie.

  • Kathy Prendergast

    “Cake-filled” and “misery-laden” are two phrases that do not belong in the same sentence.

    • Shebel

      Actually-they do. Where did you find them in the same sentence?

    • El Martyachi

      Bear in mind it’s English food…

    • Minicapt

      If the icing on the cake is made with Crisco …

      Cheers

      • Justin St.Denis

        Like Oreo cookie fillings.

    • Justin St.Denis

      “Their cake-filled faces could not negate their misery-laden lives.”

      You’re wrong. Again.

  • The author’s equation between the banning of anti-Israel BDS and the banning of a couple of loudmouths on the Net – this is ridiculous. Anti-Israel BDS causes real harm to many people, and totally unjustly. The other two stories are unfair but hardly commensurable. I suspect the whole article is aimed at maintaining local BDS in the UK, and that’s leftist hate.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Britons have always thrived on hatred. Their pathological hatred of the French is rather funny, given that the French do not pause to even think about Britain from one year to the next.

      For example, when the French President visited for the official opening of the Chunnel, the roads from Dover to London were lined with Britons hurling insults at their new business partner as the motorcade made its way north. A truly classless people with a few notable exceptions.

      The stereotype of the drunken Brit woman or man puking their guts out on a cobblestoned street is more accurate than most would care to acknowledge.

      • I do hope the UK will vote to leave the EU – that could cause the breakup of the EU and save Europe. I am not holding my breath, though.

        England’s unprincipled foreign policy has for centuries been to ally against the dominant land power in Europe. Sometimes that was France, sometimes it wasn’t.
