Liberal rewriting of History - Belfast the Movie and the Coen Brother's "True Grit"
Apparently, in Kenneth Branagh's new "Belfast" movie, about the start of the "Troubles" in Northern Ireland in 1969, there is a proliferation of minorities - which is simply crazy!
Also, Branagh in an interview with Eamon Holmes on GB News, had to confess that there would have been no financing, if it wasn't for the tokens in his movie.
This makes my blood boil, but has an almost fate like result, that the woke scum in London now demand.
But what is actually worse, is the left's attitude to the past. For example, I've recently come across some reviews of True Grit, both the original masterpiece with John Wayne & Glen Campbell, and the utter dreck, from the Coen Brothers in 2010 - Simply no comparison!
I remember when the latter came out, when there was a plethora (Ed; What a word!) of grovelling, I'm on my knees, reviews concerning the film, and in particular both the performances and the theme.
Naturally, the leftist critics absolutely loved saying that it was superior to the original classic, as they could finally have a good kick at Wayne - they've wanted to do this for years, and waited until the Duke had been dead for decades.
But the second, fawning thing, was that the latter, unlike the original, was more in tune with the book, as it was more about the 14 year old girl, and not about the drunken, belligerent, Federal Marshall played by Wayne. Certain reviews were highly critical of this and tried to say that there had been a capture of the book by both Wayne and Henry Hathaway (the Director of the 1969 film) for their evil, "right wing" ways.
This was apparently done, almost as if to say that Wayne knew this, but decided to use his privilege and his paternacide or whatever, to relegate the Kim Derby character and to steal the theme onto himself by making it a male movie, and not about an heroic, sisters can do it!, type of movie.
Well, as usual with the leftist, fascist brigade, nothing could be less true about the original.
First of all, the Mattie Ross character is an incredibly strong woman (girl). She has Wayne's complete respect and is accepted in the end as his equal.
Secondly, after Charles Portis wrote the book, although it is from the female's perspective, he actually had Wayne in mind to play the Marshall Rooster Cogburn character.
Finally, Wayne optioned the novel less than a year after the book was published, ie, if it wasn't for Wayne, NO ONE would give a shit about this book nowadays - let's cut the crap here!
But to the leftist, and their filthy twisted world, this is ALL untrue, and FINALLY, the good old, left-wing Coens have finally set the record straight. If you don't believe me, for a laugh, go to the Wikipedia page (Good God!) for the book, and see the citations at the bottom, all from only the last few, woke, years.
For example, "A Radical Tale"!:
- Matthews, Kristin L. (2018). "True Grit: A Radical Tale". Journal of American Culture. 41 (4): 370–384. doi:10.1111/jacc.12959.
- Nauenberg, William. (2020). "True Grit by Charles Portis". The Objective Standard. Summer 2020.
Where, like a wet dream, they just can NOT get enough of this woke love-in, about an heroic, female character (albeit, a girl, who looks like she just stepped out of the makeup room, in some Hollywood set!).

This week (a bit late) - Black "Inventions", and Travel in this "extreme" weather Days
Hey All! Guess what, EVERYTHING that has ever been invented, was invented by a Black American!
If you don't believe me, just do an online search. Ah, the joys of Black History Month!
And even the colour PC monitor, apparently, according to an email I received from Animoto (an online, video, creation service), was also a Black invention. And then there's me, who knows that Africa, is just SUCH an enlightened, rich continent!
Equally, I've had to put up with 30 years of UK propaganda, telling me that it was some "limey" who had invented the Internet (actually, the WWW / http Protocol). When after all, it just had to be a Black American. Right?
For the actual TRUTH on this BS, please go here.
Which exposes the naked, blatant racism of people who actually have the fucking balls to put out these lies. Hey, I blame that truly AWFUL bit of revisionist history, from the film, Hidden Figures, that actually said that it was black American women, who put the first man on the moon!
They must have been right! Just look at this picture, and the complete absence of honky!:
Good God! When will this fucking shite end!?
This week, more nonsense and various bits that you no doubt will enjoy. At present, I'm in Germany and will blog once or twice on the awfulness here as well.

More "Extreme" Weather (according to Microsoft!)
Check this piece of propaganda out!
That's right, a wind velocity of 23mph is now considered extreme . . . in Glasgow, Scotland!
WTF! I've played golf in double that amount and came off unscathed. This is such the utter lies that we must contend with in this day and age. It makes me want to vomit!
And here, is what they actually have the balls to say:
There is an increased likelihood of bad weather affecting you, which could potentially disrupt your plans and possibly cause travel delays, road and rail closures, interruption to power and the potential risk to life and property. Amber means you need to be prepared to change your plans and protect you, your family and community from the impacts of the severe weather based on the forecast from the Met Office.
In addition, even the truly awful ScotRail have gotten in on the act, and I quote:
We know the impact that the earlier withdrawal of services will have on customers but it’s a necessary step to ensure the safety of our staff and customers due to the severe weather. The strength of the winds expected could damage infrastructure, blowing debris and trees onto tracks and damaging equipment such as overhead electric power lines and signals.
This is completely mad! For years, I've been here in Scotland, and believe me, I've survived just fine in their version of "extreme" weather.
We all KNOW that this is a con, and is a desperate attempt to scare the unwashed, particularly the moronic Millennial class, into buying into the Climate Emergency scam.
Don't believe it!

Truly awful! A conversation I was forced to listen to on an Airplane - Revolting Leftists
(laughing and interrupting)

Leftists - Do they ever change, or go away?
Went for a lovely Friday afternoon walk in Glasgow, and was struck by two horrid posters; yes we were in the university area, but was still amazed that the Socialists and Communists must still be alive and well inside the young mind.

The Week Ahead - Can you trust or believe ANYONE?
At a recent dreadful dinner I attended, some geniuses (leftists) were trying to tell me just how "warm" it had been this winter, and I begged to disagree.
Later, I did a very SIMPLE search with the incredibly biased MS Weather application on my desktop, that would help me look at the next ten days and the corresponding High temperatures for each day.
Using something called "arithmetic", I noted that the average temperature for those next 10 days would work out as 7.1 degrees. Hardly "warm".
But if you were to compare this to the average February temperature for Glasgow, it is EXACTLY where it should be; as the average is 7.0 degrees for this time of year.
So please tell me how the two geniuses could possibly think that is was "one of the warmest winters on record!?" We ALL know the answer - they ONLY listen to the MSM.
This week, more on our weather, and other things that should irritate, anger, etc, any sane person.

Oligopoly - The Elites, & why are they NEVER satisfied - Greg Norman's new Golf League
So, Greg Norman, a one-time, all-time great in the game of golf, now wants to set-up shop in that bastion of human rights, Saudi Arabia, and try to have (poach) the biggest golf players in the world to up sticks, and move from the various leagues (PGA tour in America, the European Tour in Europe & the World, et al), in order to play for $300 million in 2022/23 in his new league.
To which Brooks Koepka, has condemned him for. Good on ya Brooks!
Please try to read some of these links, as it once again shows that even when you are a rich, elite, you apparently STILL want more - more money, more fame, more what ever!
We salute you Brooks Koepka for speaking out about this, and will continue to follow this further as it plays out this year.

Week Ahead - Several things . . . - There is always Hope? Mandatory Breast Exams!? What to do with the Elites - This week's "Solution"!
There'll be a time soon I believe, when there's a coming reckoning, where right-minded people will finally get up off their arses and do something, and things will finally be better.
Speaking of which, NO MORE MANDATES here in the UK - Whether Bojo did that to escape his troubles, or because he finally is doing what he believed all along, we will wait in see.
Equally, after the farce of this year's Australian Open tennis (between an "evil" Russian, and a Spaniard with a long history of drugging allegations), why does it seem that the elites and whatever they control, appear to be corrupt?
