I spend so much time getting agitated about Guardian commenters that I forget how vicious and loopy the Telegraph ones can be. There's a rump constituency of immigrant-hating, climate-change-denying, Miliband-is-a-Marxist wingnuts on there, and a lot of the talking points are coming from the US right. It actually makes me miss the clueless Colonel Bufton-Tuftons of old.

I don't believe many of his views are sincerely held, or that he has thought deeply about AGW or 'working-class comedy' (harking back to this morning’s nonsense on R4).

Uh, working class comedy?

It was a discussion on Today about whether BBC comedy was too middle class. Delingpole had no useful opinions and just took the opportunity to witter on about the license fee and Hampstead liberal elites as per fucking usual.

Lollingpole, , advocating setting the people free by not only headquartering businesses in low-tax countries, forcing employees to drop their union memberships and ordering staff to take unreasonable paycuts, but by providing a shitty service and ignoring competition and advertising laws:

One of the greatest advances for personal freedom in the last twenty years was the rise of the low cost airline. Suddenly, thanks to Ryanair, Easyjet and their many imitators, European travel was transformed from the rare luxury of the few into something almost everyone could enjoy, often two or three times a year.

[...]

One of the key tenets of Conservatism is a desire to set people free: free of the shackles of the state, free to forge their own destiny, free to spend their money on as many exciting new opportunities as a burgeoning market is prepared to offer them.

Perfectly acceptable, nay, compulsory if you are a rapper; no longer so if you are Guy Gibson in The Dam Busters (when the 1955 film is shown now, his faithful black dog’s unfortunate name is often bleeped out). Nor even if you are Huckleberry Finn: in a new version of his Adventures, the offending word – used in Mark Twain’s 1884 classic 217 times – was replaced by “slave”.

Delingpole's A to Z of political correctness. Nice to see they're actually printing his crap in the paper itself now.

Y IS FOR… YOOFS
Who, thanks to our failing education system's "all shall have prizes" ethos, believe that the world owes them not only a living but also three taxpayer-subsidised years of rutting and drug-taking at university. Tell them it is unaffordable, and they riot around the Cenotaph. This is the generation whose parents were too caring to say "no".

Poor James Delingpole, denied so many opportunities, told "no" so often by his parents :(

It is now many years since I last thought meanly of myself for not having been elected a member of the Buller. But looking at those pictures in the papers this week of Dave Cameron, Boris Johnson and the rest of the '87 gang preening and pouting in full Buller rig did bring it all flooding back to me: the shame, the humiliation and the abject misery I felt the day I realised that I would never be smart, rich, titled, decadent or popular enough to be elected a member of the world's best university's smartest dining society.

Amazing insight from the Adam Smith Institute:

In most coffee shops these days, you'll find that the small, medium, and large coffee cups all use the same size lid now, whereas even five years ago they used to have different size lids for the different cups. That small change in the geometry of the cups means that somebody can save a little time in setting up the coffee shop, preparing the cups, getting your coffee, and getting out. Millions of little discoveries like that, combined with some very big discoveries, like the electric motor and antibiotics, have made the quality of life for people today dramatically higher than it was 100 years ago.

And it doesn’t just happen on this issue but on so many others too. Consider how, for example, the left-liberal bully mob exploited the story about the snogging gay couple turned away from a London pub, or the one about the other gay couple who – quite by accident I’m sure – booked themselves into a Cornish hotel run by ardent Christians who insisted rooms should be shared by married couples only. In both those cases important issues of genuine concern to the wellbeing of our country – how far should minority “rights” be allowed to trump property rights and freedom of choice, for example? – were drowned in a sea of Twitterish name-calling. Anyone who tried putting the counterargument – even someone like me with almost as many gay friends as straight ones – was blithely written off as a homophobe.

This is the kind of moral and intellectual decadence that is leading once free and prosperous nations like Britain and the US into decline and ultimately towards ruination. And what’s really depressing is just how few people are aware of it, let alone fighting it. For example, I noticed several self-described conservatives in the comments below parading just how offended they too were by the NoW’s underhand techniques. Well, yes. Duh! Everyone was, you blithering idiots (except maybe the tabloid hacks and private investigators who were doing of it).

But here’s the thing, while the liberal-left (and its useful idiots on the alleged right, I fear) are busy demonstrating to the world how caring and nice they are, really bad dangerous things are being done in the name of caringness and niceness. I think of the environmental and economic damage which is being done behind a cloak of ecological virtue. [For myriad examples see my new book Watermelons] I think of the suicidal deficit which is being stoked for fear of offending public service workers (who, as we know, are so much more caring and nice and altruistic than anyone in the productive sector of the economy). I think of the freedoms which are being taken away and the unfairnesses codified and the further suicide bombings being invited in the name of being nice and caring to various minorities. I think of the jobs that are being lost and the recovery delayed by a government too scared to lower the tax rate lest it be thought insufficiently caring and nice towards the deserving poor.

is this sarcastic? really? like there is a dastardly plot in which of course they interrogated the capacity for bigotry of the hoteliers before they set-off?

There was actually a very balanced doc on Radio 4 a few months ago interviewing both the couple and the owners and discovering what happened and clearly it was an accident. But why check facts when you can insert parenthetical smears?

Delingpole now has blood on his hands:

Although Breivik’s conspiracy theories are insane, they are in line with mainstream opinion among American conservatives. He cites Christopher Monckton’s speech before the Minnesota Free Market Institute in 2009, accusing President Obama of trying to cede United States sovereignty to the United Nations through climate treaties. Monckton — a rabid conspiracy theorist who claims his opponents are Nazis — was a Republican witness before Congress on global warming in 2010.

Breivik also believed that the “Climategate” hacking incident “revealed how top scientists conspired to falsify data in the face of declining global temperatures in order to prop up the premise that man-made factors are driving climate change.”

One of his sources for this delusional claim is right-wing climate conspiracy theorist James Delingpole, who regularly appears on Fox News, including Glenn Beck‘s now defunct show. The Norwegian terrorist also cited climate conspiracy blogger Steve McIntyre, who appeared in a one-hour Fox News special on global warming in 2009. McIntyre’s conspiracy theories have been promoted by Rep. James Sensenbrenner (R-WI) and Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK). Dozens of Republican members of Congress have endorsed the Climategate conspiracy theory.

The knives are out for Herman Cain, as of course they would be. He's personable, he's clever, he's funny, he has a proven business track record, he's small government, he has original ideas, he's post-political, he'd make a way better US president than either Perry or Romney (let alone Obama). But most damningly of all, he's black.
