“Prison Planet” Watson
I have to concede that my previous, and generally low, opinion of Paul Joseph Watson has risen slightly…
Watson has never said or written a word, publicly, in defence of people who have been attacked (some of them actually imprisoned) for exposing the Jew-Zionist lobby and/or Jewish behaviour. Examples:
Alison Chabloz: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-derbyshire-56616838; https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10732361/Anti-Semitic-blogger-Alison-Chabloz-58-compared-Auschwitz-theme-park-jailed.html.
As I write, Alison Chabloz is once again incarcerated, and is on her 24th day of imprisonment in respect of a 22-week (in reality, 11-week, or 77-day) sentence recently imposed for lampooning Jewish behaviour in song.
Ursula Haverbeck: I have never even seen anything from “Prison Planet” Watson defending Ursula Haverbeck: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ursula_Haverbeck, though I concede that I rarely access Watson’s material, so may have missed something.
I have certainly never seen any sign of his having acknowledged the attacks that I myself have borne —and withstood— from the Jew-Zionist lobby:
I understand why someone such as Watson, making a living as a socio-political “influencer”, will want to keep his various social media platforms active, but there is a limit.
For me, Watson has in the past gone too far in trying not to seriously antagonize the Jew-Zionist lobby, but it could be argued, I suppose, that someone “deplatformed” has no influence at all. A balancing act.
Now the “antifa” and Jew-Zionist tendencies have joined forces to try to repress Watson. Their greatest joy, in that, would be to see him lose his YouTube channel, as well as other platforms, notably his Twitter account.
As previously noted on the blog, the self-describing “Left” (a term I never use baldly) has, since 1989, completely discarded any serious attempt to replace finance-capitalist society with something (anything) potentially better. Its adherents now have, as their highest aim, “deplatforming” those with whom they disagree (more accurately, those whom they —often irrationally— hate). Nothing more than that.
Repressors of free speech
Just came across a particularly toxic-seeming organization, the Institute for Strategic Dialogue:
As can be seen from its own website, that organization and its paid staff are interwoven with many other System organizations, from the UK governmental org, “Prevent”, to Tony Blair’s set-up.
The Western world is on several slippery slopes at present.
As often noted, the problem the voters have is that, both mentally and in practical terms, they are locked into a System “choice” which is really no choice: Lib, Lab, Con.
Late tweets seen
Quite. I had occasion to visit a small hospital (a routine annual test, not for treatment) a week or two ago. Not busy (they have no A & E). I was the only member of the public there, on entering the hospital, but there was a person standing there with a box of facemasks. He proffered one, using tongs, like an air hostess offering a hot mini-towel.
I thought to keep my disapproval light, so merely asked (in mock-surprise), “oh, you are still doing that?”, to which the mask-profferor replied, slightly censoriously, “this is a hospital“…
As to the hospital itself— deserted. In mid-afternoon. I saw one or two nurses around; literally one or two, no-one else. No doctors, no patients.
I found the place to which I was going. The staff there (two nurses) were very pleasant. They discovered that the administration had messed up the appointments again, they said (meaning the obviously West Indian girl on the telephone a few days previously, and who was based elsewhere— there are very few blacks in my part of the country, so far).
The nurses quickly sorted everything out, and I was out of the hospital 10 minutes later.
I wondered, as I walked over to the car, parked in the convenient (and temporarily free) car park, what on Earth has happened to the NHS. That hospital, never crowded, used to be fairly busy until the evening.
I heard a story from someone else in that vein. The difficulty of even getting an appointment to actually see a GP now, and the Kafka-esque goings on around mostly useless “telephone appointments” arranged by dragon-like receptionists. Also, re. that patient’s GP, who now apparently only bothers to work two days per week!
Does that GP get paid 40% of the average (I think) £120,000? So £48,000 a year for only two days each week?
Is there still a working NHS in the UK?
