How Feminist Airheads Lie With Statistics

The screengrab below is of a message posted to Reddit shortly after I posted an advert/appeal for the False Rape Timeline. I haven’t been able to identify this individual but I don’t think it is assuming too much to say she is a radical feminist, or some kind of self-identifying feminist. Regardless of either political affiliation or gender, the argument used is typical, so I use this refutation as an example of how to deal with these braindead morons.

She begins by pointing out that every timeline entry is separated from the one above by an hr tag - in reality an hr followed by a p (paragraph) tag. As hr appears 3,250 times, there are 3,249 entries, one fewer than I claimed. While it is nice to meet a woman who can understand HTML - even the code I write! - this was an unnecessarily niggardly comment. As I make clear, the timeline doesn’t contain simply false rape allegations, there are false allegations of attempted rape, indecent assault, and such things as journal articles. However, there were at the time more than 3,250 false allegations of rape. The December 14, 2006 entry alone alludes to over two thousand false allegations which resulted from a scam pulled by the corrupt law firm Leigh Day in Kenya, and the entry for August 28, 2017 relating to false rape allegations in the Congo contains an unspecified number of false allegations, and explains how and why they came about.

Before addressing the substance of her claim I would like to point out that I am not, have never been, and will never be, an MRA. I am very much a traditionalist, albeit a failed one, and a somewhat reluctant MGTOW.

Now coming to her statistics, she claims - using the timeline - the rate of false allegations amounts to 11 per 100,000. But only assuming we can trust these numbers. Then using some dubious arithmetic she claims this makes it thirty times more likely for (a man) to be struck by lightning than to be falsely accused of rape.

According to a BBC report from 2014, around 24,000 people are actually killed by lightning every year, a shockingly high figure (no pun intended). On October 13, 2016, the Guardian reported there were 23,851 official allegations of adults being raped in the year 2015/6, almost all of them women, yet there were a total of only 2,689 convictions over the same period (for rapes of adults and children). Granted there will be some overlap from 2014, and many of the above reports not having come to trial, but it is clear that the vast majority of allegations do not result in conviction.

Feminist airheads would have us believe that the criminal justice system is at fault, but as many police officers and lawyers will admit, albeit only off the record, at least half of all reports are false, like they never happened, or are regret sex, ie women who have had consensual sex then withdrawn their consent retroactively. One of the very few willing to go on the record is the former district attorney Craig Silverman.

Finally, the entry for October 24, 2003 reports that since the beginning of the year, in the city of Dunedin, New Zealand (population less than 150,000) there had been no fewer than seven false reports of rape, two in the previous two weeks. The feminist statistics (read lies) are parrotted incessantly, but they have no basis in fact. As for me, I’ll take my chances with the lightning.

Kangaroo & Chips

Like the time Alan and I ate shark and whatever it was with Mrs Jefferies, this sort of thing sounds exotic. So did the ostrich Taha and I ate not so long ago, but basically a steak is a steak. To some, soya might seem equally exotic, ditto quorn, in spite of its blubbery texture.

The same can be said of many other things in life. The exotic, the unusual, even the dangerous can be extremely tempting, but at the end of the day it’s still only meat, or whatever you are substituting it for. And if it is only exotic rather than forbidden fruit, you don’t even get a rush out of it.

My Final Word On The Harvey Weinstein Scandal

In November 1989, a young woman named Deborah was lured to an hotel room by an older man, Wash Jones Williams. Once there he raped her and gave her fifty dollars. She threw the money back at him, saying she was not a prostitute, and afterwards went straight to the police. Deborah was a genuinely vulnerable young woman; she was staying at a homeless shelter with her sister, was obviously extremely gullible, and was outweighed by her violator by more than a hundred pounds, yet she did the right thing unthinkingly. I get the impression that if Williams had offered her fifty thousand dollars after or before his sordid act she would still have turned him down and reported him for rape afterwards.

Contrast her with the “victims” of Harvey Weinstein, supposedly empowered women going places. Isn’t that what feminism is all about? Yet only one of them...one...both turned him down and reported him to the police at once, the Italian model Ambra Gutierrez who is clearly cut from the same cloth as Deborah, and a young woman who deserves to go far.

And all the others? Some of them complained about his antics, not to the police, but to his company, then took his shilling and remained silent until he was toppled. Did Weinstein rape any of these women? Some claim he did, but why should we believe them, any of them? Genuine rape victims do what Deborah did. A reasonably intelligent, educated woman who doesn’t under similar circumstances has zero credibility. They don’t deserve our sympathy, they don’t even deserve our ink, because it is women like them, not pigs like Weinstein, who are the real problem.

Did even one of these victims or as we are now to call them survivors so much as slap his face? If one or two had, or had kicked him where it hurts, he would soon have got the message. Instead they acquiesced in silence; that is not rape, it is quid pro quo.

Memory Is A Strange Thing

Many years ago I read The Book Of Excuses. I always remembered its author as Chris Welch, whom I knew to be a music journalist. I thought The Book Of Excuses was very lame. Last month I ran into Chris Welch at the fortieth birthday party of ALCS, and we got talking. I mentioned the book to him, and he told me it was not one of his. Are you sure, I asked? Or words to that effect. I was so certain he was the author, but figuring he might be ashamed of it, him being a pleasant guy, and it being a party, I stopped a long way short of accusing him of lying. Later I looked up the book; it was written by Gyles Brandreth, and on looking it over again at Saint Pancras, I realised it wasn’t so bad after all.

Awhile ago I found a ticket to a Joe Satriani concert in the suitcase atop my wardrobe; that’s it below.

I was very much into Satriani at the time and still am; in June 2011, I listed his Flying In A Blue Dream as one of my top fifteen albums. I remember running along the seafront at Blackpool in 1990 late at night listening to The Forgotten (Part Two) as waves crashed against the rocks, something that made me feel great to be alive. Yet I have no recollection at all of the December 1995 concert at Wembley Arena. I must have been there, surely?

How then can any system of justice, criminal or civil, entertain prosecutions of historical cases on the fragmented confabulations of head cases, attention seekers, and plain, old-fashioned liars?

A Sterling Revenge

On July 5, 2016, two Baton Rouge police officers murdered Alton Sterling. No action was taken against them. On the first anniversary of this crime, New York police officer Miosotis Familia was assassinated by John (Alexander) Bonds. Action was taken against him promptly; he was shot dead after a chase.

Alton Sterling was not a nice person; he was a member of both the criminal element and the underclass. Pundits from Colin Flaherty to Larry Elder have as good as suggested he deserved it. Presumably Miosotis Familia was a nice person, as far as any police officer is; she was a mother of three. Only the lunatic fringe have suggested that she and people like her deserve to die.

It is almost certain that her execution was carried out in revenge for the slaying of Alton Sterling; incidentally, she was not the first, and may not be the last. Why would anyone murder a random police officer in cold blood? It could be because the American police have long since forgotten , if they ever knew it in the first place, that they are first and foremost public servants. YouTube and other social media sites contains thousands of hours of footage of American police officers using excessive force against members of the public, both suspected criminals and innocent people. Their victims are not all black, not all men, not all young. Some are very young, and some are quite elderly.

These people are assaulted, shot, sometimes killed. Sometimes? The modus operandi of the American police when dealing with certain types of people or people in certain situations is to shoot first and ask questions as an afterthought. Other times they go out of their way to harass or simply annoy people just because they can. A typical tactic is to stop a motorist and demand to search his or her vehicle. Mapp v Ohio (1961) protected the public against unreasonable searches and seizures, but this doesn’t apply to vehicles because all a police officer has to do is claim he can smell marijuana. Do you consent to a search, or do we wait here three hours for a K9? This is only one such tactic.

The British police are cunts; the American police are psychopaths, but now the public has had enough. They must be reigned in, in particular they must receive proper firearms training, and when they shoot people without profoundly good reason, they must be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

Miosotis Familia didn’t deserve to die, but neither did Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, Walter Scott, or countless others. Weep for your fallen comrade if you must, but don’t be surprised if she is not the last when you continue to destroy other innocent lives.

The Real Cause Of “Anti-Semitism”

Way back in 1994 I wrote “The only problem of anti-Semitism is the anti-Semitism Jews themselves create”. Like the man said: plus ça change.

At the time of writing, two people in the UK – one extremely well-known, the other not so – are being persecuted by a powerful political lobby for daring to voice unpopular opinions. Ken Livingstone needs no introduction, nor do his views on Zionism. Alison Chabloz is a singer-songwriter who has dared to poke fun of shameless liars including Irene Zisblatt and the recently departed Elie Wiesel. Like the current writer she also believes the true extent of Jewish suffering in the Second World War to have been greatly exaggerated.

While the extent of Ken’s persecution is suspension from the Labour Party, an attempt is being made by the self-styled Campaign Against Antisemitism (their spelling) to drag Alison through the courts for performing satirical songs. Although she is no Lynsey de Paul, she certainly has talent, her song ‘‘‘Survivors’’’ purloins the melody of Hava Nagilah, but most of her work is entirely original, and includes songs that are neither controversial nor political. You can find her on YouTube.

Ken’s heresy is that like so many other self-styled anti-racists he equates Zionism with racism; the usual mantra is that the Israelis practise apartheid. Not entirely true, after all, the white supremacist South African Government never carried out acts of mass murder comparable with Operation Cast Lead or Operation Protective Edge. He has also claimed Hitler supported Zionism, although unlike Alison he is an uncritical believer in the 6 million. Did Hitler support Zionism? That is a complex issue, but what is not complex is the fact that the Nazis and the Zionists had the same goal – they both wanted Jews out of Germany.

Along with two anti-Zionist rabbis, this goy has documented the cooperation between the Zionist movement and National Socialism, and I would refer you in the first instance to this pamphlet and this one. Back in the 1990s, I studied every issue of the Jewish Chronicle from well before untill well after the Nazi era; some of the things I found therein were incredible, like an editorial published October 25, 1935. On page 9 under the heading Scrap the Transfer Agreement! the reader is told the German Government was subsidising Jews, and the paper was not happy about it:

“These tainted German goods are often being sold...at...far below cost price, thanks to the German export bonus; and the infant industries of Palestine cannot compete with them. Worse still, the Transfer Agreement, by forcing Jewish merchants and commercial houses to buy or sell German products on pain of financial ruin, and at the same time offering substantial advantages for such practices, is...debasing the life of Palestinian Jewry”.

This is not the first time I have used the above quote, and it never ceases to amaze me; the paper claimed the Nazis were blackmailing the Jewish Agency. Seriously dude, blackmail is when you give money to the blackmailer. Would anyone reading this article prefer to pay a tariff than receive a subsidy?

Whatever Ken Livingstone thinks about Zionism, he has never been an anti-Semite and is still not one, even though in the past Organised Jewry has tried to drag him into court as they did when he published the cartoon below, a cartoon that depicts a mass murderer as a mass murderer.

Having met Alison Chabloz I can say she is no anti-Semite either; laughing at Jewish liars is not akin to persecuting Jews. And who is doing the persecuting here? More to the point, let us assume they believe she is an anti-Semite, that she hates Jews, do they really believe that by dragging her into court, libelling her all over social media, and attacking her livelihood they will make her love them? At the time of writing, the website of this august organisation is boasting that Labour and Conservative candidates have been deselected in Birmingham for opining about Jewish conspiracies. The management board of the Campaign Against Antisemitism is made up of three Jews. A conspiracy is by definition a combination of persons for an unlawful or immoral purpose. By its persecution of Alison Chabloz, the Campaign Against Antisemitism has become a Jewish conspiracy, in my book at any rate. As for that bit about candidates being deselected for opining about Jewish conspiracies, I have only two words: Gerald Kaufman.

Fight Like A Girl

Look at the two photographs below; the first is of the stunningly attractive Ronda Rousey. The second is also Ronda Rousey; this is what a woman can look like after she has been beaten up. If a man did that, what would you call him? Yet when two women climb into a cage and do this to each other, it’s called sport.

Ronda Rousey is, or perhaps that should be was, the rising star of women’s mixed martial arts until she was stopped in the second round by Holly Holm. A year and more later she suffered an even quicker defeat to Amanda Nunes. Will she now retire? Who knows? But if these women had any sense, they would all retire. Seriously, do you want to see young, attractive women with their faces mashed to a pulp? The women who beat Rousey aren’t exactly unattractive either; it would have been better for her but not for them if the boot had been on the other foot.

Of course, there is absolutely no reason women shouldn’t keep physically fit, train, run, compete on the field, and in the gym, indeed they should be encouraged to do so, but if they want to do contact sports, judo is both feminine and graceful, then there is aikido, karate, kung fu...Indeed, Rousey began as a jūdōka; she also became a wrestler - that’s another no-no, have you seen the injuries these guys and gals suffer, and how many of them die young?

Cool it ladies, leave boxing, mixed martial arts and other blood sports to the guys. A man with a beat up face can appear ruggedly handsome, and even a bloodied loser can attract compassion, but for you, a black eye, a busted lip, a mouthful of blood, all that does is rob you of your femininity, and that is something you want to keep as long as you can. You’ll be astonished how fast the years go by and how quickly it will fade.
