Children's books are canceled

 Back when #GamerGate started, I warned everyone that it wasn't going to stop with video games. SJW cancel culture is going to invade every single aspect of your life. Don't think it won't:

Prolific children's writer Enid Blyton's work has been linked to 'racism and xenophobia' by English Heritage after a review of its blue plaques following last summer's Black Lives Matter protests.

The celebrated English children's author has enchanted millions of young readers for a century with tales of adventure, ginger beer and buns, selling 600milllion books in 90 languages.

But Ms Blyton, whose novels have been among the world's best-sellers since the 1920s, has been linked to racism in updated blue plaque information produced by charity English Heritage on its website and app. 

It says: 'Blyton's work has been criticised during her lifetime and after for its racism, xenophobia and lack of literary merit. In 2016, Blyton was rejected by the Royal Mint for commemoration on a 50p coin because, the advisory committee minutes record, she was 'a racist, sexist, homophobe and not a very well-regarded writer'.

This is what YOUR submission to "equality" and "diversity" and "tolerance" has wrought. Every single time you said "I'm not racist, but...." or "I believe in equality of opportunity, not equality of result" or  "I have lots of [fill-in-the-blank] friends" or "they just want the same chance for love and respect that everyone else does", you helped make this possible.

Words matter. Ideas matter. Yes, insane "leftists" and "liberals" drove the process, but conservatives and Christians and nice people were required to accept the lies in order to make it work.

You cannot be what the world considers to be a "good person", let alone a "nice person", and stand against the swamp of lies with which evil engulfs the world. Every single little compromise you make, every single little dishonesty to which you submit, contributes to the sum total of evil in the world.

Remember, convergence requires the universal submission of every individual and organization.

  1. Next time someone leads off with ``I'm not racist but ...'' interrupt to ask him ``Why not?''

    You can't love the races God made unless you're racist. Jesus was racist. Go thou and do likewise.

  3. Let the book burnings begin new boss same as the old boss. This message is getting tiresome and so are the enablers at all levels of government that do nothing. Democracy is worthless when it comes in Joe Biden sized containers. Like in 1930's very few speak out regardless of what they might think and so history will once more repeat itself all over again. The media whistles and the people dance. Never thought I'd see this kind of crap in my lifetime and in the west. It's always the bloody intellectuals that start the fires saving us from ourselves and our ignorance. GOD help us from the helpers.

  4. I loved Enid's books while growing up in India. Did not ever think that it was racist, despite England's colonial past in India. The spirit of adventure in those books helped make me who I am today.

    Reading this immediately brought to mind SSH-related conversations women have about men being "too nice". They subconsciously understand the reasons for measured intolerance, that without it predatory people will treat good men as door mats and dominate society.

    The modern iteration of this process arguably started at the turn of the 19th century when law and order was ceded from fighting-aged men responding to "hue and cry" to "professional police". Sloth and cowardice in dealing with criminality slowly extended into sloth and cowardice in being unwilling to level credible threat of force in the face of tyrants (the "civility politics" types exemplified today by people like David French).

    I could follow this line of thought down the s-bend into the clown world we have now but this is a wall of text already.

      Crazy, not predatory. These people are Crazy. There's at least some level of Honor with Predators. These people are down right insane, shameless, and dishonorable.

      They will attempt to trample over Good Men no matter what. They have to be evicted, expelled, and in some cases violently so.

  8. I listen to a podcast called "372 Pages" that's basically the bad-book version of MST3K. There's never been anything political about it. One time as part of a quiz on "famous duos" they mentioned Watson and Crick as pioneers of DNA science. Multiple listeners made a point of writing in to educate them on Watson's horrible racism and basically scold them for mentioning the two without that disclaimer. They're always looking for a chance to drag someone down, and far too often we let it go.

    If you're in Belarus, Bolivia, Canada, New Zealand, Egypt, Uruguay, or most of Asia or Africa, all of it is now public domain as of 2019. In the United States, only her earliest stuff is available, pre-1926. Some of it is available at the Internet Archive.

  12. This blog entry is too radical for me, do you really want to upset and possibly destroy the political theater model of Left accuses, Conservatives stuck explaining themselves and in the end enshrining the Left as moral authority?

    That could lead to the Right accusing the Left, getting the Left to "explain" and then the Right exploiting the weaknesses of the the Left's explanation and targeting the Left for disqualification as Moral Authority.

    Too me that sounds like anarchy and I as a principled conservative man of virtue will have none of it.

  14. English Heritage doing the very opposite of what from its name it is expected to do.

    I am sure I read Noddy which is why it is not my fault that I am an unrepentant wacist and xenophobe.

    These people and The Royal Mint are beyond contempt. How long then before they come for Agatha Christie who has far too many swarthy Jews and similar ethnically challenged middle-easterners in her stories. Funny though that the fact that the murderer is always a white middle class and usually successful male is not considered unacceptable.

    Nothing will be left.

  15. It must really gall them that Blyton’s racism, sexism, and homophobia can’t be called “self-styled” or otherwise that she’s also not (yet) a misogynist too.

    How did this happen?
    A bunch of homosexuals, effeminates, and blue-haired feminist battle-axes sat around a Zoom call imagining ever more outlandish ways to impress the others on the Zoom call.
    AND YET GROWN MEN (and women) SHRUG THEIR SHOULDERS AND DO AS THEY ARE TOLD.

    Agatha Christie died in the mid seventies and as I understand it presently, copyright expires some seventy years after the death of the author. We can then once again enjoy Ten Little Gingers (my spelling is terrible - all the right letters but not necessarily in the right order) in I suppose the 2040s.

    I suppose Conrad's Ginger of the Narcissus is out of copyright already.

    Copyright by the way was an invention in the reign of Queen Anne when the period was fourteen years from publication. When I was younger the period was fifty years from death. Certain people in Hollywood are keen to extend the period beyond seventy years. What a racket: I would like to be paid repeatedly for work I did sixty or more years ago.

  30. @29 copyright isn't about money it's about control. if it was about money it would expire in 5 years.
    copyright creates incentives against high quality content. talentless people are intentionally selected to be platformed so that they can be deplatformed and there is no risk of them going rogue.
    copyright in computer games means everyone goes through copyrighted clients to official servers where you get banned for saying the gamer word.

    The way Andrew Breitbart put it, politics is downstream from culture. Much longer ago Christ said the same thing in a different way: "Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit." In our own time we have seen cultural decline precede political decline. So the deduction is, political renewal or renaissance, if any, must be preceded by cultural renewal.

  40. Another function of blacklisting history, art, and literature is that it removes the positive from our culture. This is so, when challenged as to what makes our culture good, we've nothing we can point to. As a result, the assertion that 'all cultures are equal' wins by default. Really, if you think about it, it's just another example of Marxism cutting down the exceptional so that mediocrities don't feel jealous.

    It's a pointless question because it doesn't matter.

    Jesus didn't say "eat this bread and it becomes my body, and drink this wine and it becomes my blood"

    Look at the word "as". It means, something REPRESENING another thing.

  43. This is an old post--but obviously, I've decided to post o it anyway, after reading something on Youtube.

    It was this review of Phillip Pullman's Golden Compass and some backstory for Tiger Lilly by a Native South American girl who called both books racist.
    Yes, Phillip Pullman's atheistic fantasy trilogy she called "racist" for the flimsiest of reasons. It was something about the people in the story called Gyptians having daemons that indicated low status. And about Iork Byrnison being a pagan hero, and therefore a "Noble Savage" and therefore racist--even though he's not even a human character!

    Now Pullman was always critical of Lewis as "racist," presumably because of Lewis's depiction of of the Calormenees as pagan and dark-skinned. He would probably never, ever include a bad guy with dark skin. It wasn't just that Lewis was Christian.

    What is it with reviewers like that?
