The City Hall in San Francisco is a bastion of political correctness, backing every “woke” cause going Whatever… it is the taxes of San Franciscans which pays for it all so not my battle. But its latest initiative is just so utterly offensive, it is a step too far.
The City Hall has honoured the late, and unlamented, Martin McGuinness not for his work on the Good Friday Peace agreement but for his “courageous service in the military.” That is to say as an active member and then commander of the (sic) Derry Brigade of the IRA.
The IRA killed more than 3,700 folks during the Troubles. Some were soldiers or RUC officers but many were just ordinary men, women and children. There were the Protestants burned out of border villages as the IRA engaged in wholesale ethnic cleansing, the six month old blown to bits, grandfathers, grandmothers sent to an early grave, the preacher, the medics, the list goes on and there were thousands left scarred and injured by bombs planted by evil Martin and his colleagues.
Be in no doubt that McGuinness was an active participant in IRA activities. His soul will surely be burning in hell as a result. What are the officials in San Francisco thinking? Do they really honour an organisation that killed women, children, babies and which engaged in ethnic cleansing? Really? San Francisco City Hall is staffed either by the ignorant or the evil. If it is the former they will rescind this honour, if the latter they will not.
I noted yesterday the ludicrous line being spun by the German Police that the axe wielding chap on the rampage at Dusseldorf station was from the former Yugoslavia, a country that had not existed for 16 years. Within minutes they had been able to say that the man had psychological issues. if only the NHS was so efficient in terms of diagnosis there would be no crisis. Yet the Police could not say where the chap came from. And the liberal media - in as much as they covered this at all - played along.
The horrible truth is that we are now so used to assaults of this kind that the media almost has an excuse not to report. By the time the real truth emerged the news cycle had moved on.
I noted at the time, that had the chap been a Croat or, even better, an evil Serb the Police would have said so at once and the media would have abandoned the mental health line as they reported on a right wing white supremacist on the rampage to pretend again that there is anj equality in terror. No one religion or race dominates terror is what the BBC wants to imply.
And thus as the news cycle moved on the Rozzers fessed up they had finally discovered that the assailant was from Kosovo. Thanks to a horrific ethnic cleansing of the Serb population which we in the West did nothing to stop, because our leaders and the media have, erroneously, decreed that the Serbs are always the bad guys, Kosovo is now almost entirely ethnic Albanian and Muslim. It is a hot bed of ISIS recruitment and we in the West helped create that state as we allowed Serbs to be driven out from towns and villages where they had lived for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. Such are the fruits of our meddling.
If, in subsequent days, we discover that this madman was, like the others, sitting on Islamist literature or had a link to extremists he will be described as a lone wolf. And of course he had mental health issues too which is an acceptable excuse for a Muslim assailant but not if you are right wing and murder Labour MPs. We have seen this all before.
The whole saga from the ethnic cleansing of Kosovo and the demonization of the Serbs through to an axe attack in Germany this week is one of news management and misinformation.
Of course, in the Balkan wars of the 1990s the Serbs were easily the biggest sinners. In part, that was a settling of scores from the Second World War when Bosnians and Croats fought enthusiastically with the Germans and did awful things to the Serbs who were largely on our side. But there can be no excuse for acts of pure evil committed by Serb war criminals in the nineties. However there were also very bad things done by Bosnian Muslims, Croats and the Albanians of Kosovo: murder, rape, ethnic cleansing and unprovoked military attacks. Those matters have been glossed over by our media and politicians as they demonize the Serbs. It is as if Winston Smith himself had been tasked with creating the history of that decade in his work at the Ministry.
I wonder how many folks were fooled by the news management in Germany of last week? Is the Ministry of Truth still getting away with it? I do not know. But surely folks are starting to wise up to such a shameless attempt to keep we plebs in the dark.
