    This is very upsetting. Greece the home democarcy, Freedom of speech, Phillosphy has come to this. Why can't she speak her mind, was the joke that bad, no. She didn't use racial slurs.

    It was political she is a member of a right wing party. The left Liberals were looking for any excuse to kick her out. She is a member of the Golden Dawn party, a right wing party. Those who pushed for her expulsion included the co-ruling Democratic Left party.

    Bottom line you have freedom of speech only when you agree with the left, if you have your own ideas that may not be pc better shut up.
    Where now the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing?
    Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing?
    Where is the hand on the harp-string, and the red fire glowing?
    They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow;
    The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow.

    If the arguments made by cultural marxism had any basis in truth at all, they would not fear the opposition enough to tyrannically shut them up. Indeed, cultural marxism is a pack of pure lies, weaponized through government tyranny, designed from the outset to destroy European peoples and cultures. That is their only purpose. There is no "principle" against "racism," it is simply a human survival instinct that leftist zealots have twisted into something they define as evil, because, yes, it gets in their way of destroying you!

    Remember what they did to Emma West, how they stole her child and ruined her life because she dared to assert that the privileged invaders she saw did not belong in her homeland. No freedom of speech to defend our folk body in any way... this is their law. If you dare to say you have a people, they steal your children, throw you in prison, throw you off the team, sack you from work, deny you a place in universities (oh wait, all you need for that is to be white in the first place.) These people are pure evil, and never forget that their policies are designed to KILL YOU OFF! This is why fighting them at every turn is the only option. It is the only chance for our survival.
    Most people think as they are trained to think, and most people make a majority.

    The masses are lemmings. Goyim. Cattle to be milked. The j00 is right about them, unfortunately.

    I was talking to my boyfriend today, saying "you know what, would fascism really be so bad? I mean, we already live in a totalitarian society controlled by a distant elite, we might as well have one with some kind of appreciation for beauty instead of one that holds nothing as having value beyond the economic".
    Obviously it wouldn't be so bad. Certain brands of Fascism would be bad for certain people of course, but that's hardly our problem is it? Those people are after all imposing their own particular brand of Fascism upon us.

    Human Rights, Freedom, Democracy and all those associated feelgood fluffy ideologies are a LIE and a trap to annihilate our Civilisation. It's slaughter or be slaughtered in this world.

    Why the fk should we be the ones turning the other cheek and accept all this and be willingly genocided via the demographics bomb and traps they layed for us?

    Why must we be robbed and enslaved by the NWO's corrupt Banking System, be priced out of the property market and turned into virtual serfs through their manipulation of our economies?

    I never much cared for the idea of authoritarian regimes because I fear they'd probably have people like me locked up, but since we have one anyway I wish instead it was one with vision and a sense of something beyond mere quantitive materialism.
    Authoritarian Regimes typically don't care about people who mind their own business and who support and work for those regimes. They lock up those who oppose them, with good reason I'll add.

    Why oppose a pro-Nationalist Authoritarian Regime which works in the National Interest?

    To participate in an Olympic event is a privilege not a right. Also there is an Olympic Code of Ethics, which is quite clear in what is dignified behavior and what is not. Understand, that freedom of speech does not mean that you may say what you want without consequence.

    I am going to answer in all honesty to this. I have no idea how I would respond growing up in such a regime, but if it bore any comparison to how I responded to growing up in the society I did grow up in I would probably have been very rebellious as an adolescent, including politically.

    I cannot for the life of me say whether that would be what happens, because who I became (and will continue to become) was partially a product of my experiences. My father once said to me he found it amusing that I was so incredibly opposed to individualism (there was a period where bemoaning it was my favourite thing to do) and yet I myself was so incredibly individualistic and not only that prided myself on being independent in thought. While people in droves collectively lauded it, I stood out on my own to condem it. He asked me if that was a contradiction and I had arguments to prove it was not, but I still wonder if it isn't a contradiction or if there isn't something inherent in me that makes me incapable of conformity or subsumption into the mass of seething voices without trying to analyse and contradict and even just observe from an imaginary vantage point above it all.

    But then another side of me considers that probably everyone thinks that of themselves and that it's arrogant to think it any kind of exceptional trait.

    All I can say is I have wondered many times how I would have reacted to the kinds of changes I often advocate had I witnessed them as pre-existing states rather than having witnessed their negations and sought to negate them.

    I came across this when I read the news today. It seems the public apologies for "racism" (it seems that stating the simple fact that Africans are in Greece is an unacceptable comment) are inevitable:

    Greek Athlete Expelled From Olympiad, Apologizes For Tweets



    Olympic athlete Voula Papachristou has since apologised again for her comments on her Twitter page. She wrote: "I would like to express my heartfelt apologies for the unfortunate and tasteless joke I published on my personal Twitter account.

    I am very sorry and ashamed for the negative responses I triggered, since I never wanted to offend anyone, or to encroach human rights.

    My dream is connected to the Olympic Games and I could not possibly participate if I did not respect their values. Therefore, I could never believe in discrimination between human beings and races.

    I would like to apologise to all my friends and fellow athletes, who I may have insulted and shamed, the National Team, as well as the people and companies who support my athletic career. Finally, I would like to apologise to my coach and my family.
    "

    The left-wing party Democratic Left said that ‘racist humour and jokes’ had no place in Greek society.

    The 23-year-old athlete was not among the favourites for gold in London. She finished 11th in the European Championships in Helsinki earlier this year and was 8th at last August’s World Championships in Daegu.

    Her personal best in the triple jump is 14.72m and her season’s best was just 14.58m, half a metre behind the favourites.

    Her Twitter account has now been taken down.

    I can only imagine what sort of threats were made against this woman for her to feel moved to issue such a grovelling, self-abasing apology.

    I do find the highlighted part particularly significant though

    We're all difficult at times for different reasons. Suffice to say that "modern Western society" appears to indulge (too much imo) our desires to "express ourselves" and to play the hard-ass. I was guilty of this myself as a teen but otoh I also didn't get away with as much as they appear to get away with nowadays.

    In hindsight more repression and authoritariansim is imo more of a benefit than a drawback. Sure, it's "less fun", a source of bitching about etc but it also fosters a culture of taking responsibility for ones actions, provides a useful deterrent against irresponsible and reckless behaviour and, not the least, encourages creative thinking in individuals where it comes to beating the system from time to time LOL


    I cannot for the life of me say whether that would be what happens, because who I became (and will continue to become) was partially a product of my experiences. My father once said to me he found it amusing that I was so incredibly opposed to individualism (there was a period where bemoaning it was my favourite thing to do) and yet I myself was so incredibly individualistic and not only that prided myself on being independent in thought.
    We all think we're terribly important, original, clever and righteous (not to mention, transgressed against by "da system") when we're teenagers.

    Later on we learn a few things and figure out that we were really just troublesome dumbasses most of the time. Sure... it's painful to admit this and many won't but hey, c'est la vie

    While people in droves collectively lauded it, I stood out on my own to condem it. He asked me if that was a contradiction and I had arguments to prove it was not, but I still wonder if it isn't a contradiction or if there isn't something inherent in me that makes me incapable of conformity or subsumption into the mass of seething voices without trying to analyse and contradict and even just observe from an imaginary vantage point above it all.
    It's probably inherent, you dislike being a sheeple. After all, once something becomes a trend it just isn't cool any more.

    Nothing wrong with that but otoh, depending on who those sheeple are, there may not necessarily be much wrong with them either. So basically, in some cases, accept the differences, learn to live with it and move on.

    But then another side of me considers that probably everyone thinks that of themselves and that it's arrogant to think it any kind of exceptional trait.
    True but imo what most ppl think is irrelevant since they don't really think, they just repeat whatever they've been conditioned with by Media, Schools, Work Environment, Religious Brainwashing Institutions etc.

    Of those who do "think", the dangerous elements who strive to undermine society and sabotage it are obviously a problem which cannot be tolerated.
    Unless the idea were to surrender to their agenda.


    All I can say is I have wondered many times how I would have reacted to the kinds of changes I often advocate had I witnessed them as pre-existing states rather than having witnessed their negations and sought to negate them.
    You live, you learn. The less you know, the more poor choices you will make based on your limited knowledge, experiences and home philosophising.

    The more you get to see and know, the more you learn (assuming you are a person who learns and doesn't repeat the same mistakes over and over). The more experienced you become the better you become at making more informed and potentially suitable choices.

    Stop contradicting yourself and spare us this Orwellian ZOG Doublespeak.

    There is no "Freedom of Speech".

    There is (your own words) the "Olympic Code of Ethics".

    Olympic Code of Ethics and Freedom of Speech are mutually exclusive concepts.

    Freedom is not the negation of conditions, on the contrary, it is to be at all times under the duress of conditions which one creates for themselves. Ideally, there is no protected speech and no prohibited speech.

    As to whether such freedom exists, there is a simple test- If the state or government may injure without redress, for no other reason than the disagreement of opinion then it limits speech and so hinders its ability to improve. Such a state will always be in jeopardy of being replaced by one that doesn't.

    Then, in that state where there is freedom of speech, lies and opinions are are best left to their own peril. The government that rules best is disinterested in speech. It neither opposes nor sanctions it but instead allows the free exchange of ideals to clash with each other unhindered. For in this, there is a certainty that what is of a low nature will always sink to its deserved level and what is of high one will likewise rise to its.
