Nationalist Terror 67


The Mainstream Media are anxious to invoke the “violent nationalists” meme at every opportunity. Today Jim Murphy and Eddie Izzard ran away in Glasgow because evil nationalists shouted back when he was haranguing them. That’s what they did – shouted back. Nobody punched anyone. Nobody shoved anyone. Nobody threw anything. But people had the gall not to listen in hushed silence to Murphy.

The idea is that Murphy with a massive media pack turns up and speaks in front of two dozen Labour activists, who huddle behind him with placards, and the media then show only cropped close shots which make it look like there was a crowd of pro-Labour people. The media do this obligingly several times a day for all the unionist parties, and it works well with closed halls with heavy security. But of course it doesn’t work on the streets, where evil people can have the gall to shout back instead of doffing their caps.

So then a different narrative kicks in, that of evil nationalist violent thugs. Now we have a news story about Murphy and Izzard “escaping” nationalist thugs. But look closely at the video clip in the Guardian, which has gone into unionist orgasm on the story. All the people with the multi-coloured placards are the planted Labour supporters. (Scottish Labour placards have now to be not only red, but also blue and orange, for obvious reasons). At the time Murphy “escapes”, there isn’t anybody apart from the vetted Labour posse within twenty yards of him. And the horrible people who dared to shout back don’t total more than half a dozen.

The Guardian claims there were “minor scuffles”. Watch the video at 11.42 on this Guardian feed. There are no scuffles, except for Jim pushing past people to run away and pretend he was in danger.

It is a trick they have pulled before, and doubtless will pull again.

    Is it possible to mention “how to farm potatoes in Perthshire”, without someone interjecting with information about Israel, Iran or Worzel Gummage?

  • Resident Dissident

    What is pretty clear is that Sean Clerkin, a serial yob, SNP supporter and a former candidate had a loud hailer and was trying to drown Jim Murphy out. If Craig and others want to support and defend such behaviour then it is up to them.

  • Jives

    Oh dear God!

    A guy with a loudhailer!

    At a political gathering!

    Well gosh..it must be the end of civilisation!

    The sheer terror of a loudhailer!

    Sources close to the Daily Mail suggest this terrorising loudhailer may well have been painted tartan!!!

  • Resident Dissident

    Well what a surprise Jives has no problem with drowning out the voices of those he disagrees with.

  • Habbabkuk (la vita è bella)

    That’s true, he’s quite a loudmouth.

    But, thankfully, he hasn’t been on here too much lately.

    No more 3am harangues, etc.

    Perhaps his boss is keeping a closer eye on his extra-curricular activities?

  • Jives

    Sources close to the Daily Mail have indicated the SNP possesses a fiendish arsenal of Loudhailers of Mass Destruction ready to be launched in 45 mins against everyone,everywhere.

    “Whilst it may not have been the Battle of Cable Street, it has to be said that nationalists – whether BNP, EDL, KKK etc. do have a reputation for violence. I can understand why Jim Murphy and Eddie Izzard would have found it a very frightening experience – particularly Eddie as the far-right are especially hateful of LGBT people. Nationalism is a dead ideology which began as a perversion of the ideals of the French Revolution and ended totally discredited in the eyes of most reasonable people in May 1945 with the destruction of Hitler’s Bunker. We are increasingly a global village now and we are increasingly a multi-racial society with interracial relationships producing many children of a mixture of races. Patriotism is okay, but I feel that nationalism and xenophobia go much too far and are based on hate. National borders were never set in stone anyways – as anyone who has ever travelled through Europe will notice.”

    The notion that Izzard and Murphy were frightened is clearly absurd. Do you use the same barometer for critiquing rationalizations of nationalism for Jewish-Zionist extremists like the Likud fanatics and their supporters?

  • Jives

    All trolls,shills and sockpuppets have been ordered by their line managers to report for emergency procedures on blogs worldwide!

    Theres a guy with a loudhailer in Glasgow!!

    Prepare for the end of the world!

  • Habbabkuk (la vita è bella)

    The late Enoch Powell had great knowledge of classical antiquity.

    Indeed, he read Greats (ie, Classics) at Oxford and became Professor of Greek at Sydney despite not holding, as far as I’m aware, any “higher degrees” in the subject.

    He too held radical views on many subjects.

    Many people considered most of them to have been ever so slightly unhinged.

  • Resident Dissident

    Jives – the Daily Mail like yourself has never had much of a problem with drowning out free speech. Perhaps you might explain what ceding democratic legitimacy actually means.

  • Nuada

    Love to oblige, Craig, but I’m so physically sick, weary and tired of the Orwellian mind control mentality of Guardian staff and their laughably named “comment is free” section that I point blank refuse to open their site. I simply will not connect to the Guardian, so great is my disgust at their “liberalism”. Quite honestly, I’d sooner read the Torygraph or the Heil. At least all those apoplectic retired colonels from Tunbridge Wells are good for a laugh.

  • S Paterson

    Decent politicians and supporters of all political parties in Scotland should be extremely concerned about the manipulative behaviour of people like Jim Murphy and even more so of the biased, brainwashing strategies being used by the Media. It’s akin to the techniques used by the Nazi propaganda machine.

    God help us all, especially the Scots, if Murphy, Vice President of the UK branch of the Henry Jackson Society, ever acquires real power in the UK. He’s a very dangerous narcissist and it’s about high time his cronies at the BBC, and elsewhere, stopped supporting such a person.

  • Jives

    Ahahahahahahahahahaha!

    Bloody hilarious watching the trolls on here pissin their pants over a guy with a loudhailer.

    What a bunch of numpties.

  • Jives

    Resident Dissident.

    So are you saying a guy with a loudhailer isnt entitled to his democratic expression hmm?

    What a fool you are.

    P.S…I dont vote,i just find your pant pissin over a wee guy with a loudhailer hilarious.

    What does your line manager think you should think in reply?

  • Habbabkuk (la vita è bella)

    Jives

    You know the saying, surely – your freedom stops at the point where it inhibits someone else’s freedom.

    If the SNP thug was attempting to use his loudhailer to drown out Murphy and Izzard, then he was impeding their freedom to address voters, wasn’t he.

    Sorry if that’s perhaps a little complicated for you, but if you make a big effort I’m sure you’ll twig before your night-shift starts.

  • Resident Dissident

    So in an election its permissible to drown out the voice of those standing for election with megaphones? Democracy Scottish Nationalist style I presume?

  • Jives

    Habbabkuk,

    More vague selectivity from you as per.

    What does your line manager think you should think,for money?

    So in an election its permissible to drown out the voice of those standing for election with megaphones?

    …the use of a megaphone as part of lawful protest is not a criminal offence. Justice Holland in the High Court in 2007 stated that: “Protest is lawful; the use of a megaphone as an adjunct of lawful protest is itself lawful. The starting point is unfettered freedom to engage in so much amplified protest as is neither intimidating or harassing.” HLS Group Plc v SHAC 2007 WL 919475 [2007] EWHC 522 (QB) QBD. However, if you were to shout insulting and abusive comments through a megaphone or point it deliberately in someone’s face, this would amount to an offence.

    Ultimately (like taking the taxpayer to the cleaners to bail out criminal bankers) it is a question of what the law will permit and whether there’s a policeman handy.

    DUCK AND COVER!!

    EVERYBODY,EVERYWHERE,IN PERPETUITY!!

    WE ARE FACING AN EXISTENTIAL THREAT FROM A LOUDHAILER!!

    Provide evidence that Sean Clerkin is an SNP supporter or apologise to the SNP.

    …………………………………………………………………………………..

    Becky, the three groups you mention do indeed have a reputation for violence but all of them are racist.

    The SNP is not a racist party as I’m sure you know already.

    We do also have Jewish nationalism in the form of Zionism which has an ideology based on race.

    You also say, rather oddly : “National borders were never set in stone anyways…”

    But national borders are set in international law and mandated by the UN.

    Are you a Jewish nationalist Becky?

    Are you a defender of Israeli expansionism?

    “drowning out free speech”

    The idea that Murphy, on tv every day, on radio every day, front cover every other day, marketed on the internet, on billboards, on pamphlets delivered free, is “drowned out” by a few seconds of megaphone is stretching it.

    Anyway every opportunity to harangue these fuckers should be taken. Even if set up. They hate it.
