History is littered with defining moments which, in themselves, are hardly important, e.g. the actual act of crossing the Rubicon and yet the image comes down to us as highly significant.
There are so many others. The Bastille was not, in itself, significant – how many prisoners were actually released? Yet it forms part of the foundation of the French nation. It wasn’t the Battle of Hastings in itself but the effect on morale which counted. It wasn’t some silly vote on gay “marriage” but the way Cameron bludgeoned it through which counted.
And another aspect of all this is that these seemingly insignificant gestures are not painted onto a blank canvas, where nothing had existed before – in fact quite the opposite. There already existed a bloody battlefield with a high body count and this was simply the Night They Drove Old Dixie Down. Just one in a long litany of rancour.
Rancour is what came out of last night’s Eurovision excrescence. The left can put all the spin on it they like – oh it was “fun”, it shows “compassion and kindness for minorities” whilst categorizing any opposition, as they always do, as hostile, prejudiced and always angry.
You need only read the Frankfurt dystopics to see there is no accident in this – this imposition of ugliness and deviance on a largely softened up, demoralized [in every way], largely naive population, to the utter outrage of the 30% or so of those in the community who see this as nauseating – this is very much a core aspect of the destruction of the bourgeois west in preparation for their insane new world.
And the more the left act innocent and seize the high moral ground – oh dear, we have to be tolerant of all aberration and sickness because that’s the Christian thing or even have the temerity, having done this, of turning around and telling normal people to lighten up and get a life – “it’s just a song contest”, the angrier normal people become.
The leftist joke, of course, is that for days, just as with that Hirst monstrosity erected on some southern coast without any leave from the people, just as with all the other “you will eat these faeces and like it” mentality of coercion and a range of penalties if you won’t accept that which is deeply offensive – for days, we will have to put up with those pictures of that now internationally celebrated freak.
And of course, they painted that “person” as vulnerable and sweet and fine and good and anyone of any sensitivity who is not a knuckle-dragging redneck must surely embrace this new celebration of the deviant – we know the agenda, we see it played out, this was no different last night. This was cast as a fine person overcoming deep prejudice to make a brave stand when in fact it was nothing of the sort.
And all that remains from this leftist insistence on doing this is rancour. Put aside the arguments for and against, put aside all the name-calling – the point is that before the left insisted we embrace their warped world view, people largely got along.
Now we don’t. There is distaste and ill-feeling where yesterday there was not. And did I create that last night? Did any of you?
Don’t try to lay it on me personally, please don’t say it’s only this post which “creates” rancour – I wasn’t the one who flooded the comments threads with furious comments and as always, the left characterize any dissent as Mary Whitehousing.

Eurovision is total crap along with its acts, the fact that the winner was a drag act with a beard comes as no surprise, no sense of decency, shame or class.

I thought TV deemed unsuitable for innocent children was supposed to start after the 9.00pm watershed!

Yes, the glorification of depravity is the new norm. There was a time when there were musicians whose music sold on merit. Not anymore!

This is a face of a new sunny neo-liberal Europe…

As soon as I saw there was an opportunity for the propaganda machine to further normalise sexual confusion, I knew the ‘bearded lady’ would win. But why oh why didn’t I pop down to the bookies?!

The BBC wasted god knows how much licence payers money on this nonsense and 4 hours of air time. If this is what we have come to it is the beginning of the end.
What I’m saying is that what we have this morning is rancour and bad feelings after what used to be a just a cheesy song contest Wogan made fun of and no one ever got really upset about.
Last night was highly political. Everyone thought it would be the Ukraine/Putin thing or the predictable voting and all the usual Eurotrash things which make the night enjoyable for most.
Instead, the politics was highly orchestrated in an entirely different way – this was all about pushing and imposing a concept on people who simply don’t want it.
Did the ordinary people think that one up? Did the centre-right even? Did UKIP plan last night? Nope, it wasn’t even planned by libertarians – it was planned by GHQ all the way.
And this Sunday morning, as they knew it would, the Norton and Telegraph live-blogging 30% feel gleefully vindicated, about 30% feel deeply upset and the other percentage don’t understand what it’s about though they didn’t like that freak who won it.
You can ignore the people quoted if you like, just as the politicians are ignoring the voice of the people but those people have voices and I have quoted here what they are largely saying.
That is the only result to come out of that battle last night. And like the Rubicon, this may well have been the defining moment in the social war, a war which everyone knows is going on but one side pretends does not exist because they’re the ones perpetrating the crimes against humanity, they’re the ones insisting we accept their worldview.
And we don’t.
