‘My dad and Walt Disney would be turning in their graves over woke Snow White remake’

Quote

Urging studio bosses to focus on new ideas rather than focusing on remakes of older hits, he said they “shouldn’t be taking a classic and rewriting it in their own image. Pick on something else... create new characters, if you’re gonna do this, but don’t destroy or try to destroy something that is, that is a classic and is a beautiful piece”.

 

But would he bother calling them woke or just communists?

British preschoolers shown ‘bondage’ classroom images – media

The school in question has reportedly denied that there was anything ‘erotic’ about a picture of an elderly man in a dog collar and lingerie

Four-year-old children at an English preschool were shown a book about gay pride featuring illustrations of a surgically-disfigured transsexual and an elderly man in fetish clothing, local media has reported. At least one child has been removed by parents from the school after staff refused to apologize.

Concerns were raised with Genesis Pre School in Hull when they found out that their children had been shown ‘Grandad’s Pride,’ Hull Live reported on Saturday. When one father examined the book, he was shocked to find it contained illustrations of “partially naked” men in “leather bondage gear.”

“The main and most immediate concern is that children have been exposed to at least two age-inappropriate sexual or erotic images of a man in what can only be reasonably described as ‘bondage/fetish/BDSM’ gear,” Will Taylor told the newspaper. 

Written by Harry Woodgate, a man who identifies as non-binary, ‘Grandad’s Pride’ tells the story of a young girl who discovers a ‘Pride’ flag in her grandfather’s house, learns about his history of gay activism, and is inspired to organize a pride parade in her small town.

Not a day goes by ...

 

Slightly more interesting story about Luis Rubiales than the other daily bs, but still recognisable as the modern OTT reaction.

 

Another training and marketing campaign. 

 

When I compare this to the real tragedy, injustice, murder and destruction of peoples wealth health and peace of mind ... it's head shakingly ridiculous. What a sick thing to teach our sons and daughters. An increasingly upside down world of absolute opposites. 

 

They want to get rid of him? Why? 

 

Imagine if our footballers had protested like this about taking the knee, or our elderly being abused and murdered, or even our elderly being robbed and enforced into loneliness. You'd need a bloody good imagination. 

 

I'm sick of these weak and whiny 'me too' freaks. 

 

A human touched you? Big deal.

 

Sky News; "Luis Rubiales insists he won't step down after he grabbed player Jennifer Hermoso and kissed her on the lips during the trophy presentation ceremony. The head of Spain's Sports Council is seeking Rubiales' removal and says "we want this to be a 'Me Too' of Spanish soccer ".

NATS aims for improved diversity in new controller recruitment drive

11 April 2023

NATS, the UK’s leading air traffic control provider, has today reopened its trainee controller recruitment programme, and is especially encouraging applications from women and people from under-represented backgrounds.

For the first time since before the pandemic, people can apply to join NATS’ student controller scheme, with basic training based at one of their two training facilities in Hampshire and Gloucester. Once passing an online assessment, successful candidates go through around nine months of vigorous initial training, before being posted to an airport tower or control centre to complete their learning and assessments.

Successful controllers come from all walks of life, but NATS is seeking to redress the gender imbalance that exists across the aviation industry, with the ambition that half of its new intake to be made up of women.

Helen Fuge, Head of Talent and HR Services at NATS, said: “Air traffic control should be a career anyone can aspire to, but along with the wider aviation industry, it has long been heavily male dominated. We have many wonderful women controllers, but they make up only around only 30% of the total and we want to change that.

Wedding plans in chaos, no flights to UK for '12 days', families staying at airports with no food and drink, and others forced to beg for money: Stranded holidaymakers' travel hell - and NO compensation - after air traffic control meltdown

By Tom Pyman and Andrew Chamberlain and Gerard Couzens and Olivia Jones

Updated: 09:32 EDT, 30 August 2023

Dozens more flights have been grounded today on top of more than 1,200 cancellations yesterday after National Air Traffic Services (Nats) suffered a 'technical issue' preventing it from automatically processing flight plans.

Thousands of holidaymakers have been left stuck as a result, with some being told they won't be able to get a flight home for a staggering 12 days.

The NHS Pays Diversity Officers Up to £75,000 a Year. No Wonder it Can’t Afford to Treat Patients

In the comments section of a recent newspaper article, one reader cruelly suggested that had the paediatric doctors at Lucy Letby’s hospital reported her for the crime of misgendering anyone, Letby would have been disciplined and probably fired faster than you could scream ‘transphobe’. But murdering premature babies, that was seemingly not a serious offence for our woke hospital bosses. And so, our politicians and media promise us (yet another) ‘independent inquiry’ which will (yet again) ‘leave no stone unturned’ and will (yet again) conclude that ‘important lessons have been learnt’ and will (yet again) ‘ensure this never happens again’.

Meanwhile our beloved NHS (which is the envy or the world) rushes ahead with hiring ever more DIE (Diversity, Inclusion and Equality) managers. Waiting lists are shooting up towards eight million, health services are collapsing and thousands live in pain or die early or unnecessarily due to a lack of care. Yet our NHS bosses seem convinced that the only way to save our NHS is by hiring more utterly pointless, sociology-degreed DIE parasites presumably because NHS bosses believe ever more of these DIE managers will hugely improve the service offered by the NHS.

Let’s just take a moment to look at a few of the latest DIE vacancy ads:

Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

People Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Officer: £28,407-£34,581 a year: Do you have a passion for equity and inclusion? Are you an excellent administrator with the skills to effectively manage a varied workload where workflows can change rapidly? Do you enjoy having a wide variety of tasks when you’re at work? If yes, this may be the role you are looking for. This is an exciting opportunity to join the Culture and Engagement team here at Sherwood Forest Hospitals and support making a difference for colleagues in the Trust

The successful candidate will support the delivery of the EDI work programme across Sherwood Forest Hospitals. The post holder will assist our staff networks in creating, developing, and executing action plans to effect positive change within the Trust.

I’m sorry to ask some stupid questions, but why does some hospital most of us have never heard of need a Culture and Engagement team including a People Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Officer? How many pointless bureaucrats are in this Culture and Engagement team? How much does this Culture and Engagement team cost us? What does a Culture and Engagement team have to do with patient care?

Kettering NHS Hospital Foundation Trust

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Officer: £28,407-£34,581 a year: We have an exciting opportunity to join the HR team at Northampton General Hospital as Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Engagement Officer, initially as a fixed-term contract to the end of March 2023. You will work with the new Group Head of OD and Inclusion and build on the positive foundations of work across the organisation.

Key part of the role will be to work closely with our four staff networks, being the primary point of contact and support for network Co-Chairs, and supporting the delivery of EDI initiatives across the organisation.

  • Operate as Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Engagement Officer within The Trust to provide advice and support to the wider organisation in terms of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.
  • To play a key role in the delivering of the Group EDI strategy at KGH
  • To be part of the Group and support them to deliver on strategic HR Projects and Equality, Diversity and Inclusion programmes.
  • To support the Senior Diversity and Inclusion Specialist with all communication for any Internal KGH EDI requirements and the Diversity Calendar

I apologise again for asking some stupid questions. But why does a hospital like Northampton need a Group Head of OD and Inclusion and a Senior Diversity and Inclusion Specialist and an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Officer? What on earth do these three people and their staff do all day? What do they contribute to patient care? Just how many people at Northampton hospital waste our money on fatuous DIE nonsense? Is there nobody at Northampton hospital who realises what a farce this pointless and expensive DIE industry is?

University College London Hospitals Trust (UCLH)

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Manager: £51,488-£57,802 a year: UCLH has a strong commitment to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) with multiple projects and initiatives being implemented to help us on our journey of building equity, diversity, and inclusion into everything we do.

This is an exciting role supporting UCLH’s new Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Lead, on a range of high quality strategic and operational projects to ensure we are delivering sustainable and tangible diversity and inclusion related solution in our workforce policies and practices that lead to increased patient outcomes. Additionally, the post holder will support UCLH’s Staff Networks – BAME, LGBTQ+, Disability, Mental Health, and Women.

UCLH seems to have recently hired a new Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Lead. But now UCLH apparently believes there is so much equality, diversity and inclusion work to be done, that the hospital feels it necessary to splash out over £50,000 a year on an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Manager to support the new Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Lead.

Meanwhile an NHS organisation based in Hemel Hempstead is looking for a Senior Diversity and Inclusion Partner – salary: £70,000 to £75,000: This person’s job is to support the “Director of People” in implementing DIE programmes. If the Senior Diversity and Inclusion Partner is to be paid £70,000 to £75,000, one could wonder how much of our money this person’s boss – the Director of People – is pocketing each year.

Many of us are probably aware that our NHS is busy hiring DIE staff. But probably few of us realise quite how many of these people there are in each of our hospitals. While the NHS treats ever fewer patients at an ever-increasing cost to us, it seems to be Christmas every day for the ever-growing empires of DIE gravy-train riders.

Maybe it’s time to scrap the woke, useless, collapsing NHS and just start again?

NHS waiting lists hit record high in England

13 July

A record 7.47 million people are waiting to start routine hospital treatment, NHS figures for the end of May show - up from 7.42 million the previous month.

This is the highest number since records began for the NHS in England, in 2007.

Some 385,000 people have been waiting more than a year to start treatment.

It comes as the prime minister said industrial action was making it "more challenging" to bring down waits.

Junior doctors in England have begun their longest walkout yet over pay.

The five-day strike runs until 07:00 BST on Tuesday 18 July.

Labour Party Councillor Charged with Child Grooming Offences in Scotland

Kurt Zindulka

29 Aug 2023

A senior Labour Party politician in Scotland has reportedly been charged on child grooming charges.

David Graham, a senior councillor representing Buckhaven, Methil and Wemyss Villages and a member of the Fife Council cabinet, was reportedly arrested by Police Scotland last week.

The left-wing Labour Party councillor, who also served as a member of Fife’s National Health Service (NHS) board, has since been charged with child grooming charges and suspended from the party, the BBC reports.

Commenting, the head of Fife Council’s of legal and democratic services, Lindsay Thomson said: “Councillor Graham was charged with an offence and has been suspended by the Labour party.

“He has stepped down from his council appointments pending the outcome of the investigation. No further comment can be made by the council during a live police investigation.

Graham, 41, was first elected as a councillor in 2012 and has since taken up roles with the Fife Community Safety Partnership and the Fife Alcohol & Drug Partnership. He also served as the spokesperson for health and social care for the Fife Council cabinet. Previously the politician worked as a parliamentary assistant to Labour Party Member of Scottish Parliament (MSP) Claire Baker.

A Police Scotland spokesman said: “A 41-year-old man has been arrested and charged in relation to grooming offences following an investigation in Fife.

“He has been released on an undertaking to appear at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court at a later date. Further enquiries are ongoing.”

On 28 July a gender critical woman demonstrator, Julie Marshall, was “punched in the face” by a political opponent in Aberdeen. The man who struck her was questioned and issued with a police caution not to punch people.

He was neither arrested nor charged.

A month later, Scottish Government minister Patrick Harvie was giving a TV interview at the scene of the forthcoming Rutherglen byelection when a man heckled him, calling him a “deviant”. Harvie responded that the man was a “bigot”.

The heckler has now been arrested and charged, though when Stuart Campbell spoke with Police Scotland, they refused to confirm with what offence he had been charged.

Now we might conclude from this that Police Scotland believe it is not a serious criminal matter to punch a woman in the face in the street, but it is a serious matter to call someone a deviant in the street.

Post-Postmodern America

Friday, Sep 15, 2023 - 02:40 AM

Authored by Victor Davis Hanson via American Greatness,

When the progressive woke revolution took over traditional America, matters soon reached the level of the ridiculous.

Take the following examples of woke craziness and hypocrisy, perhaps last best witnessed during Mao Zedong’s Cultural Revolution.

The Biden administration from its outset wished to neuter immigration law. It sought to alter radically the demography of the U.S. by stopping the border wall and allowing into the United States anyone who could walk across the southern border.

Over seven million did just that. Meanwhile, Biden ignored the role of the Mexican cartels in causing nearly 100,000 ANNUAL American fentanyl deaths.

Then border states finally wised up.

They grasped that the entire open-borders, “new Democratic majority” leftwing braggadocio was predicated on its hypocritical architects staying as far away as possible from their new constituents.

So cash strapped border states started busing their illegal aliens to sanctuary blue-state jurisdictions.

Almost immediately, once magnanimous liberals, whether in Martha’s Vineyard, Chicago, or Manhattan, stopped virtue-signaling their support for open borders.

Instead, soon they went berserk over the influx.

So now an embarrassed Biden administration still wishes illegal aliens to keep coming but to stay far away from their advocates—by forcing them to remain in Texas.

That means the president has redefined the US. border. It rests now apparently north of Texas, as Biden cedes sovereignty to Mexico.

Precivilizational greens in California prefer blowing up dams to building them.

They couldn’t care less that their targeted reservoirs help store water in drought, prevent flooding, enhance irrigation, offer recreation, and generate clean hydroelectric power.

Now an absurd green California is currently destroying four dams on the Klamath River. In adding insult to injury, it is paying the half-billion dollar demolition cost in part through a water bond that state voters once thought would build new—not explode existing—dams.

The Biden administration is mandating new dates when electric vehicles will be all but mandatory.

To prove their current viability, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm led a performance art EV caravan on a long road trip.

When she found insufficient charging stations to continue her media stunt, she sent a gas-powered car ahead to block open charging stations and deny them to other EVs ahead in line.

Only that way could Granholm ensure that her arriving energy-starved motorcade might find rare empty charger stalls.

In some California charging stations, diesel generators are needed to produce enough “clean” electricity to power the stalls.

The state has steadily dismantled many of its nuclear, oil, and coal power plants. It refuses to build new natural gas generation plants.

Naturally, California’s heavily subsidized solar and wind plants now produce too much energy during the day and almost nothing at night.

So the state now begs residents to charge their EVs only during the day. Then at night, Californians may soon be asked to plug them in again to transfer what is left in their batteries into the state grid.

Apparently only that way will there be enough expropriated “green” electricity for 41 million state residents after dark.

One of the loudest leftist voices to defund the police, and decriminalize violent crimes in the post-George Floyd era, was Shivanthi Sathanandan, the 2nd Vice Chairwoman of the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party.

She was recently not shy about defunding: “We are going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department. Say it with me. DISMANTLE.”

But recently the loud Sathanandan was a victim of the very crime wave she helped to spawn.

Four armed thugs carjacked her automobile. They beat her up in front of her children at her own home, and sped off without fear of arrest.

The reaction of the arch police dismantler and decriminalizer on her road to Damascus?

The now bruised and bleeding activist for the first time became livid that criminals had taken over her Minneapolis: “Look at my face. REMEMBER ME when you are thinking about supporting letting juveniles and young people out of custody to roam our streets instead of HOLDING THEM ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS.”

Andrea Smith was an ethnic studies professor  at the University of California, Riverside. But now she has been forced out after getting caught lying that she was Native American.

Prior to her outing, she was well known for damning “white women” (like herself) who opted to “become Indians” out of guilt, and (like her) for careerist advantage.

The common theme of these absurdities is how contrary to human nature, impractical, and destructive is utopian wokism, whether in matters of energy, race, crime, or illegal immigration.

There are two other characteristics of the Woke Revolution.

  • One, it depends solely on its advocates never having to experience firsthand any of the nonsense they inflict on others.

  • And two, dangerous zealots with titles before, and letters after, their names prove to be quite stupid—and dangerous.

Hundreds of people who identify as dogs gathered at the Potsamer Platz railroad station, in central Berlin, on Tuesday for a meeting organized by a group called 'Canine Beings' which advocates for the rights of people who identify as dogs.

 

https://www.ndtv.com/offbeat/people-who-identify-as-dogs-gather-in-berlin-prompting-calls-for-animal-control-4408339

 

In the viral video of the meetup, attendees were seen communicating by barking and whistling towards each other.

I do expect these 'canine beings' to be chipped, vaxxed, neutered, muzzled, licensed, treated for parasites and to eat raw mince, to sniff each other's butts, crap on the pavement and get someone else to pick it up for them, in a recyclable bag. Otherwise, they are full of sh*t.

 

Barking doesn't make you a dog, any more than wearing a dress makes a man a woman. Period! And no, men don't have these either, ever.

Remember women are know known as "egg donors." Post menopause, who knows?

 

A while back in Truro there was a small group of Furries. They got really pissy with me for pissing myself laughing.

In a Waterstones I commented to my kids that the anime books covers looked like child porn. I didnt hear myself but lady overheard 3 trans dressed as Goths, saying h"he must be xenophopic."

 

It would all make great comedy if it was not cancelled first!

"Formally known as egg donors", rather like "X formally known as twitter."

there really is a full on assault to create an androgynous version of humanity with all their stupidity labelling.

Barking mad for sure, I knew a man in my hometown who ate dog food regularly, he was only in his 20's when he died! To be fair, the food never killed him, he was chasing an egg donor on a bike, when he suddenly stopped in the middle of the main road to lick his arse, and a bus went right over him! His brother was equally as mad, he used to drink a glass of pure brake fluid every morning,🫣 I said to him' it'll either kill you or you'll become addicted'!🤔 He said 'that's bollocks mate, I can stop anytime'!🤭 He died after jumping off a block of flats to test out his air brakes, , they didn't work though, but the ground did break his fall, and his back and his neck🤔

We had a German Shepherd living next door to us when I was a kid, he used to jump over our fence and crap on my granddad's lawn every morning!🤨 Granddad went next door and complained, it did no good though, the German Shepherd still did it, AND he started bringing his dog with him as well, the cheeky bastard!🫣

the problem with that sort of thing is that the younger generation have been so dumbed down that they will actually believe what the TV is telling them and their entire conception of history is going to be completely out of whack.....which is probably exactly why the neo-marxists in the BBC do that kind of thing

Civil War Rages In Texas As Historians Peddle Leftism Instead Of History

 

A battle has broken out in Texas between academic historians and hobbyist history buffs — with the hobbyists advocating for exploring history through primary source material, and the “experts” opting to push modern far-Left politics.

It came to a head this month after a veteran publisher of Texas history books wrote to a member of the Texas Historical Commission, a government body that runs historical sites, with a list of all the books sold at the gift shop of the Levi Jordan plantation outside of Houston. Of the 23 books sold, few had to do with the plantation, Texas history, or slavery in Texas. Instead, many were modern leftist political screeds or unrelated lamentations about black victimhood in other times and places.

 
 

They included books about Malcolm X, an “Afro-Vegan Cookbook,” a novel about a black man in Harlem, a book about Chicago’s black slums, and book by radical black feminist author “bell hooks” tackling “racism among feminists.” They also included a book from Frantz Fanon, who posits that violence is necessary for “decolonization,” about “revolutionary struggle, and a continuing influence on movements from Black Lives Matter to decolonization.”

The situation was similar at the nearby Varner-Hogg plantation, where “White Rage” and books by Ibram X. Kendi about diversity, equity, and inclusion were being sold.

Michelle Haas, a veteran publisher of Texas history books who chairs a nonprofit called the Texas History Trust, sent this inventory of the books to the Texas Historical Commission. “I attach a list of the books available with the publisher’s description of each,” she wrote. “You may assess for yourselves how relevant they are to the history of Brazoria County.”

“Why is the State of Texas selling an afro-vegan cookbook at a state historic site? Or fiction about people living in Chicago in the 1890s? What do books written and edited by Ibram X. Kendi have to do with the Varners, Pattons or Hoggs?” Haas asked in another email, referring to the plantations.

In an internal email, a member of the commission, David Gravelle, agreed that some of the materials “are not about accurate Texas history, but seem to wander off into present social issues.” The Commission later pared the inventory at its historic sites — it says for unrelated reasons.

“Safeguarding Mostly Involves Protecting Children From Their Families”: The Safeguarding Scandal of a Labour Council Shutting Out Parents to Push Gender Identity Ideology in Schools

Only in my hometown of Brighton and Hove (a delightful seaside city turned wretched by its political class) could such a thing happen. Only here could a city council be so captured by gender ideology, so eager to be its loyal flagship, that it would physically eject a woman from the town hall chamber for simply opposing its cloyingly woke groupthink.  

The opposition that resident Kay Lyons tried to voice in the precious time-slot the public are allowed was no more than a passionate plea to repair what she believed to be breaches in schools child safeguarding procedures. In Brighton and Hove, a growing number of parents share these concerns. In one instance, known to the council and freely admitted by the secondary school concerned, teachers were aware of a child’s use of a breast-binder in school but tacitly supported its use and withheld the information from the parents.  

As the video webcast testifies, Kay Lyons hadn’t used foul or threatening language or accused an individual of wrongdoing. She hadn’t glued herself to the table in front of her or got up and sprayed paint across the Mayor’s crimson robes. Nor had she grabbed the ceremonial mace and waved it about (as our tantrum prone MP for Brighton Kemptown Lloyd Russell-Moyle had done in parliament in 2018). No – in fact, Lyons hadn’t even finished her question when, without any warning, her microphone was cut off and three security men surrounded her.

Whilst the manhandling and ejection of a member of the public is surprising (and possibly a criminal offence), the council’s determination to silence anyone questioning schools’ use of the gender affirmation approach (alongside the practice known as ‘social transition’ whereby a child’s name and pronoun are changed, often without knowledge or consent of the parents) is not. You can read more about these dubious practices here.
