An Irishman's Insight On Africa and refugees

An Irishman's Insight On Africa

Kevin Myers (born 30 March 1947) is an Irish journalist and writer. He writes for the Irish edition of the Sunday Times, having previously been a columnist for the Irish Independent and a former contributor toThe Irish Times, where he wrote the "An Irishman's Diary" opinion column several times weekly. Until 2005, he wrote for the UK Sunday Telegraph.

His articles criticize left-wing opinion and the "liberal consensus", sometimes incorporating hyperbole, sarcasm and parody. This essay appeared in The Irish Independent:

Somalia is not a humanitarian disaster; it is an evolutionary disaster. The current drought is not the worst in 50 years, as the BBC and all the aid organizations claim. It is nothing compared to the droughts in 1960/61 or 73/74. And there are continuing droughts every 5 years or so.

It's just that there are now four times the population; having been kept alive by famine relief, supplied by aid organizations, over the past 50 years. So, of course, the effects of any drought now, is a famine. They cannot even feed themselves in a normal rainfall year. Worst yet, the effects of these droughts, and poor nutrition in the first 3 years of the a child's life, have a lasting effect on the development of the infant brain, so that if they survive, they will never achieve a normal IQ. Consequently, they are selectively breeding a population who cannot be educated, let alone one that is not being educated; a recipe for disaster.

We are seeing this impact now, and it can only exacerbate, to the detriment of their neighbours, and their environment as well. This scenario can only end in an even worse disaster; with even worse suffering, for those benighted people, and their descendants. Eventually, some mechanism will intervene, be it war, disease or starvation.

So what do we do? Let them starve? What a dilemma for our Judeo/Christian/Islamic Ethos; as well as Hindu/Buddhist morality. And this is beginning to happen in Kenya, Ethiopia and other countries in Asia, like Pakistan. Is this the beginning of the end of civilization?

AFRICA is giving nothing to anyone outside Africa – apart from AIDS and new diseases. Even as we see African states refusing to take action to restore something resembling civilization in Zimbabwe, the begging bowl for Ethiopia is being passed around to us out of Africa, yet again. It is nearly 25 years since the famous Feed The World campaign began in Ethiopia, and in that time Ethiopia's population has grown from 33.5 million to 78+ million today. So, why on earth should I do anything to encourage further catastrophic demographic growth in that country? Where is the logic? There is none. Now they want to move to other countries to continue to breed and commit crime.

To be sure, there are two things saying that logic doesn't count. One is my conscience, and the other is the picture, yet again, of another wide-eyed child, yet again, gazing, yet again, at the camera, which yet again, captures the tragedy of children starving.

Sorry. My conscience has toured this territory on foot and financially. Unlike most of you, I have been to Ethiopia; like most of you, I have stumped up the loot to charities to stop starvation there. The wide-eyed boy-child we saved, 20 years or so ago, is now a low IQ, AK 47-bearing moron, siring children whenever the whim takes him and blaming the world because he is uneducated, poor and left behind. There is no doubt a good argument why we should prolong this predatory and dysfunctional economic, social and sexual system but I do not know what it is. There is, on the other hand, every reason not to write a column like this. It will win no friends and will provoke the self-righteous wrath of, well, the self-righteous hand wringing, letter writing wrathful individuals; a species which never fails to contaminate almost every debate in Irish life with its sneers and its moral superiority. Itwill also probably enrage some of the finest men in Irish life, like John O'Shea, of Goal; and the Finucane brothers, men whom I admire enormously. So be it.

end of article

But, please, please, you self-righteously wrathful, spare me mention of our own Irish Famine, with this or that lazy analogy. There is no comparison! Within 20 years of the Famine, the Irish population was down by 30%. Over the equivalent period, thanks to western food, the Mercedes10-wheel truck and the Lockheed Hercules plane, Ethiopia's population has more than doubled.

Alas, that wretched country is not alone in its madness. Somewhere, over the rainbow, lies Somalia, another fine land of violent, AK 47-toting, khat-chewing, girl-circumcising, permanently tumescent layabouts and housing pirates of the ocean. Indeed, we now have almost an entire continent of sexually hyperactive, illiterate indigents, with tens of millions of people who only survive because of help from the outside world or allowances by the semi-communist Governments they voted for, money supplied by borrowing it from the > World Bank!

This dependency has not stimulated political prudence or common sense. Indeed, voodoo idiocy seems to be in the ascendant, with the president of South Africa being a firm believer in the efficacy of a little tap water on the post-coital penis as a sure preventative against AIDS infection. Needless to say, poverty, hunger and societal meltdown have not prevented idiotic wars involving Tigre, Uganda, Congo, Sudan, Somalia, Eritrea etcetera.

Broad brush-strokes, to be sure. But broad brush-strokes are often the way that history paints its gaudier, if more decisive, chapters. Japan, China, Russia, Korea, Poland, Germany, Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia in the 20th century have endured worse broad brush-strokes than almost any part of Africa. They are now – one way or another – virtually all giving aid to or investing in Africa, whereas Africa,with its vast Savannahs and its lush pastures, is giving almost nothing to anyone, apart from AIDS.

Meanwhile, Africa's peoples are outstripping their resources and causing catastrophic ecological degradation. By 2050, the population of Ethiopia will be 177 million; the equivalent of France, Germany and Benelux today, but located on the parched and increasingly Protein-free wastelands of the Great Rift Valley. So, how much sense does it make for us actively to increase the adult population of what is already a vastly over-populated, environmentally devastated and economically dependent country?

How much morality is there in saving an Ethiopian child from starvation today, for it to survive to a life of brutal circumcision, poverty, hunger, violence and sexual abuse, resulting in another half-dozen such wide-eyed children, with comparably jolly little lives ahead of them?

Of course, it might make you feel better, which is a prime reason for so much charity! But that is not good enough. For self-serving generosity has been one of the curses of Africa. It has sustained political systems which would otherwise have collapsed. It prolonged the Eritrean-Ethiopian war by nearly a decade. It is inspiring Bill Gates' programme to rid the continent of malaria, when, in the almost complete absence of personal self-discipline, that disease is one of the most efficacious forms of population-control now operating. If his programme is successful, tens of millions of children who would otherwise have died in infancy will survive to adulthood, he boasts.

Oh good: then what? I know, let them all come here (to Ireland). Germany and the rest of Europe is already inundated and there are literally millions queuing up who want a hand out, taking in refugees because you feel sorry for them will end in the demise of those countries taking part.

You will note that: No Gulf State is taking any refugees, and the head of the human rights commission is Saudi Arabian !?!

We have to bomb the niggers.

It's women's fault. They are moved by emotion instead of logic and their weak husbands, fathers and brothers let them do it.

Sending money off with strangers to feel good about yourself instead of doing actual work is female bullshit. This jewish garbage has nothing to do with a "Christian ethos," and it is laughable that muslims would do anything but rape and enslave these nigger faggots.

Kevin Myers’ Notorious Gender Pay-Gap Article
September 1, 2017 /

The row over the gender pay gap within the BBC is the final proof — though none was needed — that the organisation is both utterly unreal and irredeemably corrupt. Equally unreal has been the tiresome monotone consensus of the commentariat, all wailing and shrieking as one about how hard done by are the women of the BBC.

Note the silence from the women of the infinitely superior Sky Television, a straightforward commercial organisation that has no illusions. Its function is to make profitable programmes, which can happen only if the presenters are good, no matter the contents of their underwear.

The BBC — like RTE — is of course different. It has this fake obligation to public service, which it discharges fitfully and in a wholly biased left-liberal fashion. It is this increasingly marginalised duty — PC to its follicles, of course — which causes the wholly erroneous belief that the staff are somehow or other “equal”, and therefore deserve “equal pay”. Naturally, the female presenters demanding “equality” with the top-paid men are not demanding the same for the Jamaican waitress in the BBC canteen.

Only one woman is among the top 10 best-paid BBC presenters. Now, why is this? Is it because men are more charismatic performers? Because they work harder? Because they are more driven? Possibly a bit of each. The human resources department — what used to be called “personnel” until people came to be considered as a metabolising, respiring form of mineral ore — will probably tell you that men usually work harder, get sick less frequently and seldom get pregnant.

But most of all, men tend to be more ambitious: they have that greyback testosterone-powered, hierarchy-climbing id that feminised and egalitarian-obsessed legislatures are increasingly trying to legislate against. Indeed, only weaponsgrade ambition could have got that deeply irritating jackanapes-on-steroids Jeremy Vine a berserk £700,000-£750,000 (€782,000-€838,000) a year. Plus, he must have one hell of an agent.

So have the BBC’s top women found a revolutionary new kind of negotiator that likes to start high and chisel downwards? Is this amazing unter-agent dedicated to the concept of seeking ever lower salaries for his/her clients, so earning a smaller commission for him/herself? And if such unter-agents actually exist, who is idiotic enough to employ them? The BBC’s female presenters, apparently. I note that two of the best-paid women presenters in the BBC — Claudia Winkleman and Vanessa Feltz, with whose, no doubt, sterling work I am tragically unacquainted — are Jewish. Good for them. Jews are not generally noted for their insistence on selling their talent for the lowest possible price, which is the most useful measure there is of inveterate, lost-with-all-hands stupidity. I wonder, who are their agents? If they’re the same ones that negotiated the pay for the women on the lower scales, then maybe the latter have found their true value in the marketplace.

Yet even using that word “marketplace” in the absurd world of the BBC is like putting “common sense” and “egalitarian feminism” in the one sentence without a negative, or collapsing with laughter.

Like RTE, the BBC depends on a compulsory poll tax, the television licence fee, and from that vast pot of revenue come the preposterously large salaries for Chris Evans, Graham Norton and Gary Lineker. Quite simply, public service television — with so many still-neglected national and cultural obligations towards society at large — should not be paying such vast sums to anyone. Of course, I’m showing my age, but then so too are the younger generation, for almost no one under 30 watches the BBC any more.

The corporation long ago metastasised into a different kettle of very rotten fish from its founding precept of “public service”, with the decay starting at the very top. About 100 BBC managers earn upwards of £150,000 annually — or more than a British cabinet minister. Included here are the PC traitors who run BBC news and current affairs, which have stifled and corrupted all useful debate on national identity, immigration and race, thereby doing irreversible damage to British society.

Meanwhile, other broadcasting managers, almost in cultural compensation, have reduced the once majestic BBC Radio 3 to a populist jingoistic travesty, all Elgar, Holst and Williams. The Brexit vote was, in part, a conscious rejection of the largely irrelevant agenda of that depraved and self-regarding metropolitan elite.

end of article


The BBC’s defining problem is that it is torn existentially between its ancestral duty to enrich the minds of its audience, and its self-imposed ambition to compete in the televisual marketplace with populist programming. Once the pay gap was revealed, the corporation’s director-general Tony Hall promptly dissolved into crocodilian lachrymosity. Babbling inanely about the age of “equality”, he promised to “sort out” the pay differential by 2020, while the indignant female broadcasters want “equality” now — but not of course for the canteen, camera and cleaning staff.
Meanwhile, the print media generally have been wrathfully chewing the righteousness carpet. Female columnists in particular have angrily — the only mood many of them know — demanded “equality”. Some, of course, are more equal than others. A fairly average female columnist in 800 indignant words of smouldering mediocrity will, without leaving her keyboard, earn more than a cleaning lady or a checkout girl will ever do in an entire week, plus Sunday overtime


Equality is a unicorn. Don’t wait for it, or look for favours because of your chromosome count. Get what you can with whatever talents you have. And ask yourself. How many women are billionaires? Chess grandmasters? Mathematicians? There’s a connection. Mastery of money usually requires singular drive, ruthless logic and instant, arctic-cold arithmetic.

Of course, in their usual, pitifully imitative way, Irish tabloid newspapers have tried to create a similar controversy here. That’s impossible, because of the ubiquity of Miriam O’Callaghan and Claire Byrne across the airwaves, including the weather, the ploughing championship and the Angelus. But it’s Marian Finucane who lays bare the self-pitying falsehoods of the BBC women. In 2009, her contract awarded her €520,000 for just two radio programmes a week. Such a small number of programmes couldn’t possibly generate enough advertising to subsidise such absurd returns. So how was her agent able to negotiate such a deal? Metaphorically, and at a guess, by being a man.

I know that you are being ironic, but you need to lay it on thicker or you risk sounding like a fucking idiot to anyone who doesn't understand your attempt at irony.

The Earth is incredibly lucky to have this ruthless logic and instant [? grammar ?], arctic-cold masculine values at the helm.

Pretty well written imo

Nice to know they are the only ones left who consume MSM.

The other ways to master money is through crime and nepotism, or the ever-popular just print more when you need it.

"I have no career left, my reputation is in tatters."
The fired newspaper columnist Kevin Myers has apologised “unconditionally” to the BBC broadcasters Claudia Winkleman and Vanessa Feltz for the contents of a weekend article that has been criticised as being anti-Semitic and misogynistic.

Speaking on 5 Live Daily on BBC radio on Wednesday morning, Myers said: “I retract. I apologise for it. There was no justification.”

In the course of the article, which was about the gender pay gap at the BBC, Myers wrote in reference to Winkleman and Feltz, who are both Jewish: “Jews are not generally noted for their insistence on selling their talent for the lowest possible price.”

If he has no career left and his reputation is in tatters, he should not have lost the golden opportunity to tell them both to:
STICK IT UP THEIR ASSHOLES SIDEWAYS
I would have laughed my ass off and enjoyed every second of the ensuing explosion of their heads and the public reaction. My God, fame is utterly wasted on pussy Europeans. MAKE IT COUNT ANONS!
