A message – about anti-Semitism on University Campuses

  Not only is anti-Semitism on the rise yet again in the West, it often goes unchallenged. Leora Eisenberg, from the United States, delivered a heartfelt message about anti-Semitism that plagues many university campuses, and the intolerance and hostility that anti-Israel students present to those who speak out in favour of the Jewish state. Unfortunately, anti-Semitism is often not confronted. Not … Continue reading

Why the West won’t eliminate Islamic Extremism

  This week, UK Prime Minister David Cameron had refused to label the Muslim Brotherhood as an extremist threat. A review on the activities of the multi-national group, notorious for sponsoring extremism in many parts of the world, was instigated in April of 2014. While a few individual details have been released from it, Downing Street … Continue reading

The hypocrisy of some on the left

Last week’s episode of Question Time resulted in much controversy. Social media was littered with conflicting opinions on the cries of a self-employed mother in the audience, who claimed she was being affected by cuts on tax credits, instigated by the incumbent Conservative government.

It was initially proposed in September 2013 in Switzerland, and  a referendum was actually triggered over it. The vision was to deliver a Basic Universal Income to all members of the public living in … Continue reading

A response to the phrase – “not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslim”

The phrase “not all Muslims are terrorists” seems to get thrown about a lot. More often than not it is used to defend Muslims against prejudice attacks from those accused of “Islamophobia”. However, some of those who are slightly more apologetic for Muslims, but critical of Islamic influence in terror attacks, will resort to a … Continue reading

How media brainwashing works – and how to prevent it happening to you

In the words of the late, great Malcolm X – “The media’s the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that’s power. Because they control the minds of the masses.” There are many examples of the media’s methods of manipulation coming … Continue reading

“Welfare scroungers” – another scapegoat?

  In light of my previous article where I explained the blame which mass immigration faces due to the country’s shortcomings, I began to dwell over another instance where a different category of people have a bad reputation in society, known affectionately by the right-wing as the “welfare scroungers”. Of course, we’ve heard it all … Continue reading
