Wikimedia Foundation and Antisemitism

I chanced upon this discussion on Jimmy Wales’ page. It is best to read it in full. I think a fair summary is, one particular Wikimedia Foundation employee was an admirer of Adolf Hitler and alarm bells didn’t ring with … Continue reading

Ann Coulter Tiptoes Towards Antisemitism

I have never had any time for Ann Coulter. She is not funny, instead a bit sad and bitter. Her form of shockjockism, bigotry and obnoxiousness appeal only to the basest of prejudices. I felt her attitudes were often governed … Continue reading

Rod Liddle’s Open Racism At The Spectator

This post is a public record, because I would expect that Rod Liddle’s open display of racism at the Spectator will soon be removed. It is utterly senseless and disgusting. Therefore, it is worthwhile recording Liddle’s racism and its appalling … Continue reading

George Galloway “I don’t debate with Israelis”

I had always thought the George Galloway was a skilful, if devious and often nauseating, politician, but a recent video clip suggests he is none too smart, when caught on the spur of the moment. Galloway can be seen storming … Continue reading

David Ward MP, David Duke And His Supporters
