revolutionary destruction of Society as the one and only solution.
A worldwide overturning of values cannot take place without the annihilation of the old values
and the creation of new ones by the revolutionaries"

International Women's Day (08 March 2019)
"I thought 'what sort of a piece should I write for International Women's Day?' ... Should I write a piece taking the p*** out of the vomit-inducing virtue-signalling that has become associated with this day? Maybe I could mock the third wave intersectional feminists who refuse to help women oppressed by Islam ... On internationals Women's Day let's celebrate a woman who really did change things and break through glass ceilings..."
"The Independent - possibly the wokest of Britain's news outlets - has recommended Iran as a top destination for solo female travellers. Is this some kind of cruel, sarcastic joke perpetrated at the behest of the Independent's Saudi investors? Or does this excuse for a former newspaper really, genuinely believe that Iran deserves a spot on its International Women's Day list of 'best female-only trips for solo travellers'? Here is what the Independent has to say about its dream Iran adventure:..."
"Only three months after Norwegian Maren Ueland and Danish Louisa Vesterager Jespersen were savagely beheaded by ISIS terrorists while hiking in Morocco, the British paper the Independent has issued a travel guide for single women recommending they 'travel solo' to Morocco in honor of 'International Women's Day'. The article shared on Tuesday, titled 'International Women's Day: 10 of the best female-only trips for solo travellers', listed 'Hike in Morocco' as their first recommendation..."
"A University of Texas at Austin Antifa student group vandalized a water fountain with: 'organizing women for revolutionary violence' Thursday. ... 'On IWD, we must stress the necessity of organizing women for revolutionary violence against the capitalist institutions that uphold patriarchy & protect abusers..."
International Women's Day Farce (09 March 2018)
"International Women's Day descended into farce yesterday as feminists in Spain went on strike and a British MP solemnly read out a list of women murder victims - but no men..."
Let's Celebrate All Communist Holidays (08 March 2018)
"On this day every year I feel duty-bound to say a few words about International Women's Day, a communist holiday nowadays astonishingly recognised in Britain. This year is no exception, but when I sat down to write I realised that there was nothing I could add to what I wrote last year. Since paraphrasing just for the hell of it seems pointless, and repetition is said to to be the mother of learning, I'm republishing my last year's piece verbatim..."
Our Alternative International Women's Day (08 March 2018)
"International Women's Day is not something we choose to celebrate at The Conservative Woman. From the start we've made clear that women's battle for equality was won long ago and that feminism's 'more is never enough' approach to gender parity is greedy, dishonest and is doing a great disservice to men and women alike..."
"This International Women's Day we ask: Why don't feminists fight for Muslim women? In fact, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, author and activist, has done all the work for us on this. Hirsi Ali, who was brought up as a devout Muslim, describes the human rights crisis of our time and asks why feminists in the West don't seem to care about the oppression of Muslim women elsewhere. She also explains why immigration to the West from the Middle East means this issue matters more than ever..."
From Left to Right with Melanie Phillips (08 March 2018)
"To mark International Women's Day we look at the best conservative women out there. One such is Melanie Phillips. She joined the conservative cause having been news editor at the Guardian ... She has been fighting the good fight on education, culture, foreign relations and Britain's relationship in the European Union..."
Heather Mac Donald, Scourge of the Students with Closed Minds (08 March 2018)
"One of my favourite commentators is Heather Mac Donald. In the grand tradition of identity politics that is International Women's Day, now is a good time to celebrate her. The irony will not be lost on Mac Donald, who has been fighting a war on identity politics in the American academy for years now..."
Why Are We Subsidising These Women's Studies Revolutionaries? (08 March 2018)
"[T]hese departments push false anthropology and ... in order to 'fix' society they want to tear down the Western civilisation which they believe is oppressive and patriarchal. The revolution that would follow would be a nightmare..."
The Two Acceptable Faces of Feminism (08 March 2018)

Thursday's Reading List (08 March 2018)
"Today is International Women's Day, and although it is tempting to ignore the whole event, given its socialist origin, we have decided instead to list items of special interest to women in this week's reading list..."
"A total of 67% of respondents thought the advance of feminism has either gone too far (40%) or gone as far as it should go (27%), according to the survey by Sky Data released on International Women's Day..."
YOUTUBE: Laughing at the Fake Feminists (08 March 2018)
"When it comes to the ongoing wave of migrant rape and sexual assault in Europe, the people I feel most sorry for are the refugee-friendly, progressive feminists, because when they get raped they won't know who to blame - without being a racist. What am I saying? Of course they will. They'll blame ALL MEN - as usual, while telling telling everyone else not to generalise. I hadn't intended to talk about this subject again for a while, but it's International Women's Day, so, how could I resist?..."
YOUTUBE: International Women's Day (08 March 2018)
"International Women's Day celebrates women's achievements. There's no International Men's Day, nor should there be. But there's no 'International People's Day' celebrating people's achievements. IWD is divisive and feminist. Feminism depends on Christian virtues to get what it wants, and its invented grievances distract attention away from real injustice..."
The following extended extract is from the article: A De-Sexed Society is a De-Humanised Society
"As usual, tyranny comes disguised as 'civil rights'. ...
The transgender movement has never been about 'gender'. It's all about sex. Sex is the real target. 'Gender' is merely the politicized linguistic vehicle that facilitates a legal ban on sex distinctions. There aren't a whole lot of dots to connect to uncover the logic of where this leads: if you abolish sex distinctions in law, you can abolish state recognition of biological family lies, and the state can regulate personal relationships and consolidate power as never before.
Physical reality exists independent of 'gender identity non-discrimination' law - or any man-made law. Laws have no power to make reality go away, but they can change how people behave in response to reality. They can enforce disregard for reality through speech protocols, social and economic pressures, invasions of privacy, and thought policing. ...
Gender ideology is an effective tool. Cultural Marxists use it to corrupt language and sow confusion, especially among children. ...
Getting free people to reject freedom may seem a tall order. How, you might ask, could people ever be convinced to let go of their families and consent to such a dystopian social structure? How do you get public opinion on board with an agenda that leads them to deny the reality of their own humanity? There are lots of pieces to this puzzle, including the erosion of social trust, the breakdown of family, social polarization, and growing ignorance of history. But the groundwork has been laid over a long period of time.
At this point, the most primal and universal of human fears comes into play: the fear of being socially rejected. Self-censorship takes off. People start falsifying what they believe, until they eventually don't even know what they believe anymore. Nobody can talk openly to one another. In the end, it's as though we are each being marched into a separate solitary confinement cell. That's what happens when free association takes a hit, when the state severs particular relationships in the name of a collective togetherness. Then, when we can't verify reality with one another anymore - because we are so afraid of being ostracized - we end up living in an age of mass delusion.
The only way out is to affirm reality. ... Let's start by reinjecting our language with one very good word that points to reality: sex. Yes, let's revive the word 'sex', and use it generously whenever referring to the biological reality of our physical nature. (And spiritual nature too.) At the same time, let's refuse - always - to use the word 'gender' when we mean sex. It's a poisoned and weaponized word that has been used to legally de-sex and thus dehumanize us all. We must work together [Bayith: 'collectively', let's say] to resist its deception"

"European culture has been gutted by Post-Modern 'victim'-obsessed PC indoctrination which has already warped the minds of the young" [comment at: source].
The following extracts are from the article: The Origin of 'Identity Politics' & 'Political Correctness'
"Identity politics (sometimes dubbed 'political correctness') is the result of a political-Left major backlash against the mass of ordinary people (in Europe and 'the West'), beginning in the 1920s/30s, in the wake of the persistent failure of Marxist theory to be realised in European 'revolution' or any real change through democracy. In shifting the blame away from Marxist theory and those gullible enough to adhere to it, and on to those the theory had prescribed and predicted would have been the beneficiaries, if only they had responded accordingly ('the [white, male] workers'); then the cognitive-dissonance within the political-left mindset caused by this crisis to an extent was salved"
"As with any fervent ideology, a hallmark of the political-Left is interpreting anything and everything in its own ideological terms to claim as a manifestation of the ideology and its prophecy - jumping on a bandwagon, so to speak; though here only to hijack it. The bandwagon here was, of course, the American civil rights movement, which though enjoying ubiquitous support within black communities - to the point often of various forms of extremism - featured virtually nil endorsement of socialism ... It is from the time of this co-option that 'identity politics' dates; many considering that the movement was incorporated into the Left in the wake of King's assassination in 1968 - the major turning-point year in political-Left politics generally"
"'Civil rights', as the first great 'single-issue' campaign, served not least to provide an acceptable cloak for the Left to avoid provoking a resurgence of McCarthyism. The major social upheaval of 'civil rights' with its large-scale and widespread rioting was easily the nearest thing in then recent US history to look like the promised Marxist 'revolution', and obviously was just the practical application the 'theory' was seeking. Moreover, the protagonists (black Americans) were eminently separable form the now despised 'workers' per se, in being presentable as a new 'group; from outside of the former fray of 'boss' versus 'worker'."
"This accident of history served to add 'black' to 'woman' as 'the new oppressed' ... 'The worker' in effect was retrospectively stereotyped as both 'man' and 'white'. With the inverse of this stereotype of 'white' being not just 'black American' but 'black' - that is, ethnic-minority generically ... so it was that the new 'agents of social change' / 'disadvantaged' / 'oppressed' were extended from women to also include all ethnic minorities"
"It is only with the knowledge of how this developed that sense can be made of why ethnicity is held above the myriad other possible differences that could be utilised as in-group markers, when in fact there is nothing inherent in ethnicity as an in-group marker to produce inter-group prejudice that is particularly more pernicious"
"Indeed, the worst inter-communal conflicts nominally between different ethnicities usually are between different cultural heritages with no discernible 'racial' differences of any kind - and what (non-ethnic) differences there are can be minimal; the lack of contrast actually fuelling the intensity of conflict, such is the need for groups to feel distinguished from each other"
"Furthermore, ethnic prejudice is anything but restricted to or even predominantly 'white' on 'black': inter-ethnic (eg, 'black' on Asian) and ethnic-on-'white' 'racism' can be, often is and may usually be the greater problem; and a negative attitude to a certain ethnicity does not imply a similar attitude to other ethnicities"
"The specific US experience, given the highly divisive politics in the wake of the American Civil War over the basis of the Southern US economy in African slavery, does not translate to elsewhere; notably not to Europe - as was starkly evidenced in the experience of World War II 'black' American GIs stationed in England in how they were favourably received by locals, who sided with them when discriminated against"
"'Racial divides' in European 'white' host countries are the result not of mutual antipathy but affiliative forces, principally within migrant enclaves and secondarily within the 'host' community; in both cases being through in-group 'love', not out-group 'hate'"
[EMcD: though the latter part of this observation is indeed true in normal circumstances, this does not, of course, take account of the Islamic/Koranic doctrines of Al-Hijra (Immigration), Taqiyya (Lying and Deceit), and Razzia/Ghazwa (Rape and Slavery), Dawa (Cultural and Stealth Jihad), and Terrorist and Violent Jihad, carried out by fundamentalist Muslims as they settle in increasing numbers in Western countries with the sole and deliberate purpose of making every remaining Dar al-Harb ('house of war': i.e. any non-Muslim country) into a Dar al-Islam ('house of submission': i.e all Muslim countries) until Islam finally achieves its longed-for global Caliphate.]

"The Frankfurt School believed that as long as an individual had the belief - or even the hope of belief - that his divine gift of reason could solve the problems facing society, then that society would never reach the state of hopelessness and alienation that they considered necessary to provoke socialist revolution.
Their task, therefore, was as swiftly as possible to undermine the Judaeo-Christian legacy. To do this they called for the most negative destructive criticism possible of every sphere of life which would be designed to de-stabilize society and bring down what they saw as the 'oppressive' order. Their policies, they hoped, would spread like a virus - 'continuing the work of Western Marxists by other means' as one of their members noted.
To further the advance of their 'quiet' cultural revolution ... the [Frankfurt] School recommended (among other things):
(1) the creation of racism
One of the main ideas of the Frankfurt School was to exploit Freud's idea of 'pansexualism' - the search for pleasure, the exploitation of the differences between the sexes, the overthrowing of traditional relationships between men and women. To further their aims they would:
the authority of the father, deny the specific roles of father and
mother, and wrest away from families their rights as primary
educators of their children,
"Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil;
God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he
"Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife..."
"...women rule over them.
"But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in
