Feminist Cover Up of Male Art Rejected by Public

Posted on 10/11/2018

Literal Cover Up

Notice to Customers

Visitors hoping to admire Lord William Armstrong’s celebrated collection at a National Trust exhibition were furious to find ‘room after room’ of artwork covered with white sheets.

The trust, which owns his Lordship’s former home of Cragside, covered up paintings and sculptures depicting men to highlight the ‘lack of female representation in art’.

It meant visitors who had paid up to £49 to view the famous collection found almost half of the paintings hidden behind white sheets, while sculptures of men had bags placed over their heads.

 

Thing Not to See

 

 

One said: ‘It was ridiculous. Whole corridors and room after room were completely covered.’

It was so unpopular that staff reportedly had to empty the visitor comments box three times a day because it was overflowing with complaints.

The trust initially defended the ‘thought-provoking exhibition’ but later admitted: ‘Sometimes it doesn’t work as we intended.’

 

CHIMES COMPLAINT TO NATIONAL TRUST

Dear Sir/ Madam

As a life member, I am absolutely appalled by the report of covering up art at Cragside because the creators were male.

Who on Earth thought that was ever a good idea? I would have hoped the NT was above identity politics and misandric behaviour that has become all too prevalent in many areas of life.

Your sincerely,

James Williams

REPLY FROM NATIONAL TRUST

Dear James

Thank you for your email.

Thank you for your email and for raising your concerns about our recent exhibition at Cragside.

As part of this year’s national programming ‘Women and Power’, which marks the centenary of some women being awarded the right of the vote, we are highlighting the history and important stories of the women who shaped the properties now in our care. The exhibition ‘The Great Cragside Cover up’ was a continuation of this programming, created by students from Newcastle University. The exhibition saw a small number of statues and portraits of men covered to help shine a light on the women who shaped Lord Armstrong’s work and home.

This temporary student exhibition (which ran from 13 October until 5 November) was not about censoring art or being politically correct, but to encourage people to look at the collection differently and to stimulate debate. We know it is not unusual for some people to dislike or disagree with what they see in contemporary art. We’re glad that our members and visitors have had the opportunity to debate this exhibition and to feed back their thoughts, which shows that our exhibition has been successful in drawing attention to the way our collections are presented and for highlighting the history of this important property.

We are always looking at ways in which we can bring the history and stories of our places to life for visitors and your feedback about the exhibition will help inform and shape our plans.

Conservation remains at the heart of what we do and thanks to the support of our members and donors, we are spending more than ever before on conservation work. Part of conservation, however, involves understanding and communicating why these places are important to protect so that future generations will continue to care for them.

I hope this is helpful and thank you for your support.

Kind regards

YOU DON’T MATTER

Posted on 27/10/2018

MEDIA INDIFFERENCE

On 16th Oct 2018, I sat in Ferneham Hall, Fareham, Hampshire to listen to officials and affected members of the public exchange views about the untimely death of 656 patients at a Gosport hospital some 20 years previously. That is how long it can take for British justice to react where ordinary people are the aggrieved parties.

One lady asked an important question: “If this has happened in a little corner of Hampshire, is it also happening elsewhere?”

Prison of the Establishment

Real People

Here For You

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was a fair question and it did not take much of a search to find another scandal concerning untimely deaths and neglect at Staffordshire hospitals of probably 1,300 patients and that as many as 14 hospital trusts are under review with a potential death toll of 20,000. These are not all old people at the end of their natural lives. Many deaths were of children.

I could comment solely about the state of health care in the UK, but others have already covered these stories. My concern is about the seemingly callous disregard towards human life in other areas if you happen to be in the wrong social spectrum. I am a single journalist with very limited resources, but this pervasive indifference and, sometimes malice, seems prevalent in other walks of life.

It would seem that if you are a white male competing with a black female for a job in engineering, there is a 2 to 1 chance that she will get the job ahead of you. If you are a boy and you have a female teacher, you can expect to be marked down in English just because you are a boy. I could fill up the page with supporting evidence from research done, but would make this opinion piece boring due to all the references.

Emaciated Tommy Robinson

I watched activist and journalist, Tommy Robinson, as he was being released from Onley prison in the UK after he had spent 2 months there based on very thin and doubtful charges to do with a contempt of court that had not occurred. His wrongful conviction is not something that other journalists, who had committed far worse offences (including causing the collapse of trials), had received no more than a fine for their misdemeanours. However, Tommy Robinson is not one of the elite. He comes from the ‘unwashed’ ranks of the working classes. He has form. He is doing things that embarrass the elites. He exposes the corrupt morality of those in power and who wield that power in the most cynical fashion whilst

claiming to be acting self righteously and on behalf of the public good.

No one can convince me that his punishment was anything other than a political action against someone who was highlighting issues that were shocking and damning of the whole callous and cruel nature of the establishment, namely the mass rape of British children. Can anyone imagine what a furore there would have been if any of these victims had been royals? The girls and their families were ‘low status’ girls and white trash at that. Just like those who

Plan to Control

are dying in poorly run hospitals.

It seems to be a theme that is not simply about the wealthy ignoring the poor. It is an element that runs through many ordinary people involved in these things, but it is when these matters are being covered up or ignored by the British establishment is when your trust in them starts to become threadbare. To me, the Establishment includes the media, the political elites and a significant chunk of the judiciary and police. Added to this number, you could include many ordinary people who keep their heads down for fear of repercussions they may face if they speak up.

Seeing the emaciated figure of Tommy Robinson was shocking. It encapsulated the corrupt hearts and thoughts of those who govern us. He had been illegally held in solitary confinement for most of his detainment. I saw no journalists nor any UK media organizations speaking up on his behalf. In fact, they were all too ready to condemn him. I regard myself as a neutral, but found myself to be utterly disgusted by the attitude of the political and media establishment. This is becoming a regular sensation for me as I, in my plodding way, keep coming across how easily evil can harm and destroy societies and, most importantly, the people who try to live in

them.

The upshot is that you and I really do not matter. We are unimportant as individuals except what we mean to each other.

“In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” ― George Orwell

Posted on 29/05/2018

It is difficult to write after witnessing the malevolence of those people entrusted to our government on our behalf. It is like waking up to find George Orwell’s dystopian society is real.

If the British people would wake up to the pure duplicitous nature of our establishment, the lies, the cowardice, the totalitarianism and the self-righteous, virtue-signalling monsters that they are then they would rise up and overthrow them now while they still can.

I have travelled to London twice in three days to take part in two out of three rallies protesting the authoritarian malice being exercised against the British people whilst the media have been muzzled by judicial order. If I say the wrong thing here, I could find myself picked up by the police and thrown in prison.

As with elsewhere, I walk the streets to pick a flavour of the sort of people that use them and to observe what they are interested in and how they conduct themselves. In London, as elsewhere, the many thousands are completely asleep and oblivious to what is happening. They consume an intellectual diet of trivia, fantasies and falsities. It seems they are more interested in who is going to be the winner of X factor than the fact their freedoms and their entire culture and history is in real danger of being consigned to one of Orwell’s memory holes.

I am of the strong opinion that the political establishment in the UK are a bunch of traitors to the people. They have colluded, along with the police and the media to do nothing about the mass rape, torture and murder of young girls and, sometimes boys, over many years. Families and individuals who dare complain too much get bullied, threatened and criminally labelled as Islamophobes and Far Right.

“Islamophobia, a word created by fascists and used by cowards to manipulate morons.” Christopher Hitchens

I see nothing ‘right wingist’ about condemning child rape. All people should stand up against that, but it is happening all the time and in dozens of communities across the UK. From Rotherham to Telford; and from Oxford to Birmingham and it shows no signs of stopping any times soon. The estimate is about 75 towns and cities are experiencing this phenomenon. This has been going on for 30 years. It has involved young girls being gang raped and it’s the added brutality that goes with it. One twelve year old had her tongue nailed to a table to warn her against telling. All of this has gone with the complicity of police and local authorities and deafening silence of the mainstream media.

This is the bit that may land me in trouble: Tommy Robinson, a figure who is constantly demonized by the main stream media and condemned as a far right campaigner was arrested on Friday 25th May 2018. He was given a 3 minute hearing at an unrevealed court and summarily sentenced, without a jury and without proper legal representation, to 13 months in prison with immediate effect. The media has been issued with what is called a ‘D Notice’ which bans them from even mentioning what has happened to him. It seems that the few that were omitted from this condition are those publications who are extremely hostile to his very existence.

One of the rallies I took part in on Monday 28th May was appealing for justice for three teenage boys slain by alleged Muslim terrorists. These fiends got away with their heinous crime of running down 5 boys in Hayes (near London) while driving along a pavement at speed (clocked at 71 mph according to the official report). This seemingly deliberate attack was dismissed as a dangerous driving charge. Three of the five boys struck died almost immediately. IMG_3300.JPGThere was no full investigation by police. Apparently, one of the perpetrators was found to have ties with Islamic extremism.

The road where the boys were killed was re-opened after only two hours, but next day body parts were still being discovered.

The grieving parents have apparently suffered threats at the hands of the authorities and, disturbingly, at Monday’s rally in Whitehall one particular man was witnessed laughing gleefully. I will give no description of this creature here because of repercussions that would follow should I do so.

 

Let me reveal one more thing about the silence of the media.

President Donald Trump had been scheduled to visit the UK to open the new US embassy in London, but it was cancelled last minute. The real reason for the cancellation was never revealed, but around the time he criticized Theresa May for Britain’s terrorist APTOPIX_Trump_44846.jpg-fb1cf_c0-182-3745-2365_s885x516problem that she needed to sort out. Some sources revealed that there had been a plot to assassinate him during the visit and that his own sources had discovered this. That was why he cancelled and made his criticisms. The bulk of the media is a disgrace to the term ‘Free Press’. They are mainly aggressively partisan and complicit with evil forces by their silencing of real news.

DO NOT BUY NEWSPAPERS. DO NOT PAY BBC LICENCE FEES you are only sponsoring your own demise.

I work alone, gathering and processing my own material with minimal resources. I have a ton of footage and recordings that I have that will be published on You Tube, Minds.com and Bitchute in due course.

There are a string of Orwell’s quotes that fit the current situation. Here are just a few of them:

George Orwell“The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.” ― George Orwell

“If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—forever.” ― George Orwell1984

“Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind. ”  ― George Orwell

“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.” ― George Orwell
