UK university students have lost ability to read between the lines and interpreted a metaphor literally

“Every Muslim should be a terrorist... every Muslim should be a terrorist for the antisocial elements of society, such as thieves, dacoits [bandits] and rapists”.

He only said Muslims should terrorise the bad elements of society. What a storm in a teacup.

Ugh, this is so embarrassingly primitive and so typically EDL.

At least the EDL have the excuse of being lower class without many GCSEs, but university students have no such excuse.

I guess the typical university student in Paedo Bastard Britain Slutland has lost its ability to recognise metaphor, analogy or any imaginative use of language.

The British these days are so stupid and hysterical these days they cannot even recognise it when a foreigner uses imaginative metaphors to express a moral exhortation to be nasty to criminals.

What will become of them?  I fear for the future, I really do.

It's interesting you mention class. I've been thinking a lot about class lately.

We hear a lot about racism. Every media outlet goes on about it these days relentlessly. But what about classism?

Personally, I hate being educated and 'middle class'. Most of the people I socialise with these days are lower class. 90% or more of them will never have been to university. I attended university and found it too difficult to complete so I dropped out.

I'm probably more educated than a lot of university students even, but I educated myself largely through the internet, and especially Wikipedia. The rubbish I was taught in university didn't interest me and I despise the types of people that you find in universities - students, professors, lecturers, the lot of them.

Universities are full of left-wing politically correct types. Common people, for the most part, dislike political correctness and have disdain for reckless left-wing policies. I have a lot of sympathy for such lower class people.

But left-wing, middle class university students are different. They actually actively support left-wing lunacy and political correctness. They sneer at the concerns of the man (or indeed the woman) on the street. These people actively support the things I despise. Not all students support these things, but they're being indoctrinated to believe them.

Nonetheless, I do find that lower class people are often intellectually not on the same level as me. I'm talking about the sorts of people that type in text speak, have strong regional accents, have jobs like working as a cleaner or at McDonald's. There is no way to reasonably engage in intellectual discussion with these people because it just isn't in them.

I don't believe in "a communist utopia", but I have heard of some people that do.

The lower classes DO NOT chat about Marxism, feminism and anti-racism. That rubbish is only for middle class university students.

The middle class university students' political views are motivated largely by altruism, and the lower classes' political views, insofar as they have any, are motivated largely by egoism (self-interest). Naked displays of self-interest make the individual appear 'needy', and that is amongst the least hip and cool things you can possibly be, especially if you're a middle class university student.

I would also say that in some ways, class in the UK can be more important than race. A middle-class non-white person is much more likely to get a good job than a lower class white person. The former may have a university education whilst the latter may have spent their time on a crap council estate drinking white cider and watching Jeremy Kyle for most of their lives.

What is exceedingly difficult to find is people who are both fairly intellectual AND have strong right wing views.

I don't mean to bring my personal life into this, but I was told that the majority of women would have very little in common with me because I'm too brainy and they're just bimbos. That's what I was actually told.

As I mentioned earlier, strong regional accents are an interesting one. In my experience, a strong regional accent strongly correlates with:

* Lower social class
* Less formal education
* Being older

Those younger people with a strong regional accent are very obviously of low social class. So to be an authentic product of your own region is to be 'scum' but to be a rootless cosmopolitan is to be 'perfect'.

Anti-nationalism, reproductive nihilism, cosmopolitanism and anti-traditionalism seem to all be closely linked.

I was trying to talk to someone here and have a discussion. Maybe you could engage in this debate, Claire:

(I'm the user "WeadGuhrtl" trying to talk to the author of this blog about what he's written - weird username I've chosen, I know, don't think it has any particular meaning)

One of the things I like about you is that you're willing to take on anyone in an intellectual discussion. You kick up a fuss. You make some noise.

Do you think he's correct in what he says in that blog post?

A defence to defamation is that the statement is true, and free speech is more important than the easily offended feelings of women and the effeminate.
