Theresa May appears to intend to screw Britons over, one way or another

Dismaying, but unsurprising… (Hat tip.)

Theresa May is planning to introduce huge regulations on the way the internet works, allowing the government to decide what is said online.

Particular focus has been drawn to the end of the manifesto, which makes clear that the Tories want to introduce huge changes to the way the internet works.

“Some people say that it is not for government to regulate when it comes to technology and the internet,” it states. “We disagree.”

Senior Tories confirmed to BuzzFeed News that the phrasing indicates that the government intends to introduce huge restrictions on what people can post, share and publish online.

The plans will allow Britain to become “the global leader in the regulation of the use of personal data and the internet”, the manifesto claims.

It comes just soon after the Investigatory Powers Act came into law. That legislation allowed the government to force internet companies to keep records on their customers’ browsing histories, as well as giving ministers the power to break apps like WhatsApp so that messages can be read.

The manifesto makes reference to those increased powers, saying that the government will work even harder to ensure there is no “safe space for terrorists to be able to communicate online”. That is apparently a reference in part to its work to encourage technology companies to build backdoors into their encrypted messaging services – which gives the government the ability to read terrorists’ messages, but also weakens the security of everyone else’s messages, technology companies have warned.

The government now appears to be launching a similarly radical change in the way that social networks and internet companies work. While much of the internet is currently controlled by private businesses like Google and Facebook, Theresa May intends to allow government to decide what is and isn’t published, the manifesto suggests.

The new rules would include laws that make it harder than ever to access pornographic and other websites. The government will be able to place restrictions on seeing adult content and any exceptions would have to be justified to ministers, the manifesto suggests.

The manifesto even suggests that the government might stop search engines like Google from directing people to pornographic websites. “We will put a responsibility on industry not to direct users – even unintentionally – to hate speech, pornography, or other sources of harm,” the Conservatives write.

So, the choice Britons get in their upcoming election is this:

If they elect Labour, Brexit could be in jeopardy, because Labour can’t be trusted to see it through. (Maybe that’s her aim…)

If they do vote the Tories back in, Brexit may happen, but Britons will also get increased state tyranny as regards what they can see and post online. A deeper Deep State…

Fucked either way…

Why, it’s as if a certain vindictive ex-Remainder wishes to punish Britons for making the ‘wrong’ choice…

It’s not a slip up, it’s a rare admission of the truth.

 

Video: Muslim in Canada defends pedophilia

So Muslims in the West are still defending their founder’s marriage of a six-year-old girl, and consummation when she was age nine…

Their worldview is not compatible with ours.

It’s as simple as that.

Philosophies of a Disenchanted Scholar

They’re getting so bold, aren’t they?

I think the only sensible reply to this is Deus Vult.

“Silence is consent.”

The feminists say nothing.

This completely contradicts the notion of consent, which is a positive construct that must be actively given, in all law, so I would question the translation of that word. It must mean something else, Islam knows no such thing as consent. There is only its meaning, ‘submission’. Submission is never consensual, it is coerced. Coercion is like blackmail in another signed (non-marital) contract, it vitiates consent, it becomes invalid. One must be free to consent.

Lying about the conjoined medical phenomena of menstruation and puberty is another strike against reason.

This entire sham of a religion is merely an excuse for war. No other religion is warmongering. It is totally incompatible with the West and its culture and people.

Germany Confiscating Homes to Use for Migrants

Germany Confiscating Homes to Use for Migrants

In an unprecedented move, Hamburg authorities recently confiscated six residential units in the Hamm district near the city center. The units, which are owned by a private landlord, are in need of repair and have been vacant since 2012. A trustee appointed by the city is now renovating the properties and will rent them — against the will of the owner — to tenants chosen by the city. District spokeswoman Sorina Weiland said that all renovation costs will be billed to the owner of the properties.

The expropriation is authorized by the Hamburg Housing Protection Act (Hamburger Wohnraumschutzgesetz), a 1982 law that was updated by the city’s Socialist government in May 2013 to enable the city to seize any residential property unit that has been vacant for more than four months.

The forced lease, the first of its kind in Germany, is said to be aimed at pressuring the owners of other vacant residences in the city to make them available for rent. Of the 700,000 rental units in Hamburg, somewhere between 1,000 and 5,000 (less than one percent) are believed to be vacant, according an estimate by the Hamburg Senate.

Socialists and Greens in Hamburg recently established a “hotline” where local residents can report vacant properties. Activists have also created a website — Leerstandsmelder (Vacancy Reporter) — to identify unoccupied real estate in Hamburg and other German cities.

It remains unclear why the landlord in Hamm left his apartments vacant for more than five years. Some have posited that, given the location of the properties, the renovation costs may have been too high and probably would not have been offset by the rental income.

Crazy pentebabbleists.

 

The wages of radical egalitarianism, continued

(Hat tip.) As with Swedish policewomen, similarly with Floridian ones, here, finding themselves very much out of their depth.

Oops! Thankfully for them, a chivalrous white knight stepped in to help fix the problem created by dogmatic radical egalitarian ideology giving rise to such a situation.

IOW, it took a man to fix it.

He shouldn’t have bothered. I wouldn’t have. But then, I’m Red-Pilled; I’ve broken my chivalrous programming.

 

Cultural Hallmarxism

I was in some greeting card stores recently, shopping for a Mother’s Day card, as one does.

This of course was not a new practice for me; I do so every year.

But, for whatever reason, something leapt out at me, over and over, that struck me as new, something I hadn’t previously noticed.

Among the plethora of cards invoking simple sentiments along the lines of “Thanks, Mom, for everything; I love you; Happy Mother’s Day!”, and the like – many much more maudlin and sentimental versions of the same, which I dislike, since that’s not me – there were of course other kinds. Humourous ones, mostly, for those who don’t do sentimental, or who want to keep it light.

What I noticed, looking at some of the more humour-oriented Mother’s Day cards, was something that I may have noticed occasionally before, but this time, it was so prevalent, across the different kinds of Mother’s Day cards (some for kids to give; others for husbands to give wives, etc.), that I couldn’t help but notice.

And that was, a jokey-tone but no doubt serious promotion of the idea that the wife and mother is the head of the household; not the husband and father.

Seriously: I didn’t try to count them, but over and over, in two different stores, different card companies, this concept.

For instance, I saw a card, meant to be from a son, that had on the front cover, a mock-up of the seal of the U.S. president, but this one declared mom as ‘Head of the Household’.

I saw another, meant for a husband to give his wife, that ‘boasted’ that the best perk of their common enterprise was that ‘I get to sleep with the boss’ (as if that would happen often for any guy who put his wife up on such a pedestal). I remember a woman at a church I used to attend in another city I lived in who worked in her husband’s business as a secretary and book-keeper making that joke, and I found it amusing; I have heard other wives who work for their husbands’ businesses make the same joke. But I fail to find the prospect of a husband saying it in a greeting card (talking not about an actual business but rather the business of a family) funny. Perhaps I’ve lost my sense of humour. Or perhaps I’ve heard one two many husbands say, at the end of a ‘boys night out’ or the like, “Well, gotta go; the Boss is waiting”, which also rubs me the wrong way…

Anyway, those were just two examples, but I saw several. Over and over. It was enough to notice this time, if it hadn’t been that bad before, and I don’t think it had been, in previous years.

But it is now. To anyone who has eyes to see, and a mind to accept and not rationalize it away as ‘just a joke’.

It isn’t.

Anyway, to all patriarchal mothers out there who look up to and respect their husbands, the fathers of their children, and do not look down on them in any way, and who recognize paterfamilias as God’s Biblically-ordained order for the human race, I do sincerely wish you a Happy and blessed Mother’s Day tomorrow.

May you get to enjoy all of the perks of your highest calling as a woman, that of a wife and mother, including of course sleeping with your boss regularly and as often as he desires. 😉
