Unlike Charles this version was not funded by billionaires. It’s also ‘in character’ so don’t @ me.

Ankh Spice

Ankh Spice was one of those arrested in the Urewera raids of 2007. He claimed to be a revolutionary at the time and if Trevor Loudon’s blog can be believed was in a relationship with another revolutionary by the name of Nick Henry, who now seems to teach at Deakin University in Melbourne.

Interesting then his current ‘relationship’ to ‘Caitlyn’ Spice, a transgender activist and serial Twitter hater and reactionary misogynist with palm out for the billionaire funding which follows, or more likely leads, such ‘activism’. About as revolutionary as Oswald Ernald Mosley of Ancoats.

“Lily” Madigan

Jeremy Corbyn won’t fail on his support for Palestine or on his waffling on the Brexit issue, for his private schooling or for his brother being a climate change denier but he will fail on his misogyny as evidenced by the Twitter hashtag #LabourLosingWomen. Allowing “Lily” Madigan to be a women’s officer for the Labour Party when it is clear that “Lily” (I just can’t be bothered finding his birth name) is just a normal reasonably unattractive guy who dresses in women’s clothes to get access to women’s change rooms and toilets is disgraceful on both Corbyn’s and the Labour Party’s part.

Anyway “Lily” was taken to task for exactly this misogyny and male entitlement by ‘Sunshiney Day’ on Medium yesterday (19th June, 2019).

20th June: Link updated because the anti-free speech medium named Medium has now banned Sunshiney Day for telling the truth.

That was originally a response to the following before Lily the Man turned off the responses which were wildly more popular (1300 claps before being shut down) than his own piece of rotten screed (which has struggled to 79 claps in twice the amount of time);

The other side of Madigan’s story, the inappropriate advances which started in a women’s toilet, is here;

This thread is backed up just in case Twitter decides to take it down.

My own Medium contribution, a mild bit of sarcasm, resulted in me being blocked by what rightwingers would refer to as “Lily” the snowflake. I assume that Sunshiney Day has also been blocked. Also as previously noted the narcissistic male mentioned by Sunshiney Day has also turned off the responses on his Medium post. That’s the only way that (supposed) transgender activists can win this war on women, by blocking free speech. Don’t allow it to happen. I’m not. Sunshiney Day is not. Most women are not. Do not allow Golriz Ghahraman, not a Green in any sense of what that used to mean, to override this.

Note: The ‘Freeze Peach’ tag is a woke one.

Matriarchal societies

Rather a good write-up on early Ancient Near East and later North American matriarchal societies here as well as a run down on the changes that led to our own patriarchal one.

The article is in Portuguese but it’s easy enough to put that through a translator (or try and read it without one if you’re up to that).

https://medium.com/arquivo-radical/cria%C3%A7%C3%A3o-do-patriarcado-como-aconteceu-afbab45a9438

The part where Iroquois women can have a ‘divorce’ just by putting the man’s clothes outside the house reminds me of pre-Islam Arabia where marriages were renewed (or not renewed) every year. As the article says it took until 500 CE before the female gods were completely eliminated (a sign of the state of the society) by the Romans who after some trial and error with Sol Invictus and others had raised Christianity as the official patriarchal religion. In the process they bought Apollo (you may have a different version of this) back into the fold again but evicted Venus, Minerva et al for good. The eviction of the women gods is plausibly an arrogant mistake of epic proportions (the original eviction having been inspired by Plato*) albeit some may prefer no religion at all. I will dissent a little here though, women gods were still in existence in Europe until the 8th or 9th Centuries at least, as evidenced by many of the smaller European museums.

In my view climate change and feminism are related issues and play off each other. More of one means less of the other. So I guess everyone gets to decide which one they want more of. The current choice is probably (our) species ending, even for those who imagine themselves as borg overlords, so make sure that you choose wisely….

The Last Time is bittersweet

Richard Ashcroft of Verve has been pretty mad with Jagger & Richards as well as Allen Klein for 22 years. You see after asking nicely if he could sample (and share royalties of) the orchestral version of one of the early Rolling Stones hits ‘The Last Time’ (credited at the time to Jagger/Richards & the Andrew Oldham Orchestra) the notorious (and allegedly mafiosi) manager Allen Klein turned around after ‘Bittersweet Symphony’ became a hit and sued Verve/Ashcroft for their 50% share and indeed won.

Now Jagger & Richards along with Klein’s son Jody (Allen Klein died in 2009) have given some of that back to Ashcroft. I’m not quite sure of the details but it sounds a little token although Ashcroft seems happy with it. I’m not even sure why Jagger & Richards are involved having lost the rights to the royalties for all of ‘their’ pre 1970 songs to Klein in the early 1970s*.

The other thing is that the sampling was not of Jagger & Richards contribution to the song (which was stolen anyway) but of Brian Jones’ guitar riff.

So it’s still not right. Jagger & Richards have been &^*ts about this up until the last few weeks. The song (Bittersweet Symphony) should be credited to Jones/Ashcroft. Jagger, Richards, Klein and Oldham deserve nothing.

As for “The Last Time” well Jones should be credited there as well. It’s incredible that Jagger & Richards can finally credit Ashcroft but still can’t acknowledge who the real genius of the Rolling Stones was. I guess it has something to do with the inevitable shade that would be thrown in their direction due to their own mediocrity. Or maybe it’s about royalties even if they’ve been long spent.

* who stole them by tricking the Stones & Oldham with a US company of the same name as the Stones UK company.

Capitalism is not green

There’s a whole lot of billionaires running scared of climate change that to a very large extent can be laid at their door. I figure you can tell from all the gender tyranny around where young gender dysphoric mostly female youth as young as eight are having body parts removed, or the stories of bunkers in the NZ/Aotearoan countryside or maybe if you’ve delved deeper you’ve heard some quotes from this fraction of 1% class along the lines of climate scientist Jason Box’s ‘we’re f’d’ without the qualifying ‘if’.

But there’s another part to it as well, the manipulation of the young. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez & Greta Thunberg are the two most famous ones being used here although I’m sure both believe in the issues they’re pushing (Greta more than Alexandria though). Here’s some dissent on the story we’ve been given so far regarding these two ‘activists’. First we have Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (or AOC as she is referred to for marketing purposes) selling the cosmetic industry (some radical she is);

And here’s some links to some background information on the Greta Thunberg phenomenen (Greta is much more the activist than Alexandria but nevertheless too young to have learned how to actively oppose capitalism);

Green capitalism is using Greta Thunberg

The Manufacturing of Greta Thunberg (6 parts)

And on a similar theme who can forget this travesty (notice the brown rather than green theme…..).

Capitalism, or any variation on it, is not our future.

415 parts per million

Is roughly the number of times that the Green Party of Aotearoa/NZ mentions CO2. And that might even be generous.

I’ve searched Twitter for the mention of CO2 by the Green MPs and a few of their younger members who are obviously aiming for MP roles in the future;

MPs

  • @jamespeshaw (co-leader and climate change minister) – a big fat zero.
  • @MaramaDavidson (co-leader) – 2 both in November/December 2018
  • @GarethMP – lots before 2016 none afterwards. Still focused in this area though unlike the others.
  • @JulieAnneGenter – often before 2016. Once afterwards (19th October 2016).
  • @EugenieSage – twice – some focus there but seems somewhat naive. None after 2015.
  • @_chloeswarbrick – a big fat zero
  • @janlogie – a big fat zero
  • @golrizghahraman – a big fat zero

Jan/Golriz not focusing here is no surprise. Chloe is a surprise though, so I can only assume that her Green credentials are also lacking. James Shaw as climate change minister should be ashamed of himself.

________________________________

The Trans Greens (totally focused on Trans issues and obviously planning to become MPs at some stage).

  • thewildernerd – 3 all related to Resene who (supposedly, havn’t checked) were into climate denial in 2017
  • @max_tweedie – a big fat zero
  • @scoutriver – a big fat zero

Generation Zero
@MrFindlayC (Generation Zero leader) – a big fat zero

(well accidentally once, in giving Greenpeace a hard time for mentioning it and methane)

Absolutely exactly what was expected, neither the Trans Greens nor Findlay disappointed (although of course they do all the time as ‘Greens’, the $#@!s)

________________________________________

So there you have it. I would suggest that Gareth and Julie-Anne have some understanding of Green issues but none of the others deserves to be able to call themselves a Green. There would seem to be an edict banning Green MPs and others from referring to CO2 either as a result of Shaw becoming co-leader or in the run-up (for a year mind you) before the 2017 election.

The state of progressive ‘organizations’ in late anthropocene Aotearoa/NZ

Is terrible.

When you’ve got Anarchist “organizations” that look to be just a front for religious evangelicals then, well you have a problem.

For this reason Auckland Peace Action Incorporated and all their sub-divisions (including ‘Stop the Minerals Forum’ and ‘Climate Justice Otepoti’) are part of the problem and not part of the solution.

For those from any of these groups who take exception to the above, well I never make claims without evidence.

Safe spaces are horrible spaces

According to Van Jones. And I agree, they are.

The chief promoters of these spaces in Dunedin are those who are associated with Climate Justice Otepoti (oh and you too Mellopuffy). In my view You boys and girls are misogynists (I feel like being ruder, because you’re actually worse than misogynists, but I’ll leave it for now).
