‘He looks like ET’

first_imgDon’t you just hate it when a perfectly pleasant afternoon out is ruined by a game of football? It happened at Fulham when tipples by the Thames on a glorious Indian summer’s day were followed by a 6-0 drubbing and it happened again at Anfield last Saturday.After being led to the ground by a stereotypical cheery Scouser we drank in the atmosphere – but sadly nothing else having been held up by the traffic as half of London drove to watch Manchester United at home.It’s the away trip I’d been looking to the most since ending our 15-year hiatus from the top flight – and I tried to do my best impression of a man who hadn’t got a lump in his throat when the powerful strains of  You’ll Never Walk Alone rang around the ground before kick-off.After that the Liverpool fans decided to do an Adele and rest their vocal chords for the next 90 minutes, while the QPR players decided to do an Adel and go AWOL.“I’m sure Fulham fans enjoyed the ride, but the overwhelming feeling from a neutral’s point of view seemed to be ‘What a waste of time that was.’”Short of laying down palms and kissing their feet, Neil Warnock’s men could not have afforded their opponents any more respect and the manager’s pre-match promise that “We won’t sit back, we’ll try to give them a game” seemed to have gone through an online translator and come out as “Let’s park the bus and hope for the best”.But for an inspired display by Rangers’ third-choice goalkeeper, the visitors could have been four or five down by the interval, but amazingly the game went into the break goalless.With Arsenal unveiling rather unflattering statues of their legends last weekend, I’m proposing a special tribute to our unlikely hero in the shape of a new restaurant at Loftus Road called the Cerny Inn (I’ve got my coat).Inevitably, the home side did get a winner after Luis Suarez was afforded enough space to set up a music festival, but the QPR fans, who seemingly went into the game taking a defeat as Red, failed to be too downcast and the atmosphere in the away end was one of the most fun I’ve experienced.After inquiring of the mute Liverpool fans “Is this a library?” – they didn’t get a response – the travelling support turned their attentions to the players.Suarez was a little cruelly told he “looks like a rat” but the “rat, rat, rat, rat” that followed, delivered in the style of Chas n Dave’s Rabbit, was comedy gold (I guess you had to be there).By all accounts the Kop were quite tickled by the chants, which also compared Jonjo Shelvey to ET and, predictably, Andy Carroll to a girl – complete with requests to display his assets.Meanwhile, Jamie Carragher responded to pantomime boos as he warmed on the touchline up with a smile, reciprocated by the QPR faithful with bells on when he promptly tripped over his own feet.Warnock’s plan to “have a go” at Anfield didn’t quite work out.All things considered it wasn’t a bad day out and if Rangers had actually worked out what they were supposed to be doing on the pitch, it might just have been even better.Over at Chelsea, things are looking up as a 3-0 drubbing of Valencia booked their spot in the last 16 of the Champions League, as fans of the Manchester clubs worked out which set would start the “Thursday nights, Channel 5” chant when they meet in the FA Cup next month.City were then turned over by Chelsea following a dramatic late penalty from Frank Lampard and listening to the commentary from Ray Wilkins you could have been forgiven for thinking you’d tuned into Chelsea TV by mistake.So much so that he was forced to apologise on air for his bias, in between addressing all the Blues players by their first names and peppering his conversation with “smashing”, “tremendous” and “magical”. Still loved him in those Tango ads, mind.A bad week for Fulham saw them lose to Swansea and then crash out of the Europa League after 14 long games and a lost summer where trips to Marbella were replaced by jaunts to far-flung destinations.I’m sure Fulham fans enjoyed the ride, but the overwhelming feeling from a neutral’s point of view seemed to be “What a waste of time that was.”There was better news at Griffin Park where Brentford bounced back from the embarrassing FA Cup defeat by Wrexham to see off Hartlepool, thanks to a late disputed penalty – not that I can think of many instances when a penalty isn’t disputed.The spectacular half-time sunset got almost as many plaudits as the performance and with the Bees nestling back in the top six, all in the garden is rosy – for now at least.And finally, we stay in London for the story of the week and the confusion that followed Chris Foy’s refereeing performance in the Stoke-Spurs game.Tottenham fans, incensed by some of the decisions that went against them, bombarded Foy’s Twitter account with abusive messages – not realising they had mistakenly targeted Olympic cyclist Sir Chris Hoy.Luckily the Scot saw the funny side, posting: “Getting some rather amusing grief from Spurs fans! On the plus side I’ve learned some new four-letter words today! Just for the record I don’t need glasses and I do not lead a double life as a ref.”Fans of north London rivals Arsenal were quick to seize on the error, with one writing: “Riots return to Tottenham. Hundreds of youths dressed in Spurs shirts have destroyed and burned all bicycles in the area.”On the plus side, Chris Foy must have loved all the strangers congratulating him on his knighthood,  collection of gold medals and general sporting prowess.Enjoy it while it lasts, Chris. It’ll be business as usual this weekend.Follow Chris Charles on Twitterlast_img read more

Convergent Evolution: Darwinism, Leftism, and Sorcery

first_imgYou can tell a lot about a movement by the company it keeps.Op-Ed by David CoppedgeWe’ve reported several times about the virulent leftism of the major scientific journals, reporters and academics (e.g., 24 March 2018, 29 July 2018, 5 Dec 2018). There is hardly a policy President Trump puts forth that scientific leaders do not immediately attack. But it’s not just hatred for one man that drives them: it is hatred for all conservative leaders and positions around the world, whether in Australia, Brazil, or anywhere. The leftist bias of academia goes way back, long before the current Administration (e.g., 10 Dec. 2013). This anti-Trumpism in academia could be dismissed as just a manifestation of the general leftist bias in universities these days, but get this: all these people are also Darwinians. What means this convergence?Oddly, nearly all of the same people are also pro-abortion. They are so pro-abortion, in fact, they will not tolerate any restrictions, no matter how reasonable. Some even approve of infanticide: letting the baby die after it has been born. New Scientist glowed with pride when Ireland legalized abortion, speaking of women’s rights and convenience. What does that have to do with “new science”? Or consider the exposé of abortion practices. Which scientific establishment or Darwinian scientist has condemned the sale of baby body parts? Can you find one? On the contrary, the Darwinian leftists get up in arms at the hint of any restrictions on using “fetal tissue” for research, and some are actively using embryonic stem cells to grow “organoids” like miniature human brains. All this to benefit “science” of course, quick as they are at virtue signaling. Worries about a slippery slope toward human cloning come too little, too late as communist China forges ahead.Not all Darwinians are leftists, but the vast majority of leftists are Darwinians. Our Twitter account @crevinfo is routinely hit with hate speech by atheists who trust Darwinian evolution like a god. Looking at their Twitter pages, they are usually violently anti-Trump, anti-conservative, anti-Christian, and pro-abortion. Exceptions are so rare they stand out. We have a three strikes rule for ad hominems. Those who attempt to carry on a civil conversation usually only last a few tweets before their hate is exposed, and they flame out in profanities.So far, this points out a convergence of Darwinism, leftism, and abortion – the culture of death. We have also watched the Darwinian leftists quickly embrace every new politically correct trend, like LGBTQ+ and gender fluidity, which contradict the biological facts of sex and chromosomes. Now, there’s another group under the big tent: sorcerers. This weekend, “Thousands of witches to cast massive spell on Trump and his supporters,” reported WND. Happy Halloween, MAGA people. The article says this has been a ritual since Trump’s inauguration. Perhaps he should feel proud of the enemies he keeps.Darwinism is a package deal. There’s something about hatred of God that drives people mad. Satan is determined to kill and destroy humans through all means he can, including self-destructive behaviors like drug use, purposelessness and crime. It’s no wonder, then, that his followers also love death. Some of them want to wipe out half of humanity because of climate change or the disaster du jour. Leftists have few qualms about killing the most vulnerable: children in the womb, the mentally ill, and elderly and other vulnerable people who are a drain on society, “useless eaters” as H.G. Wells and other Social Darwinists would call them. Satan got shiploads of skeletons with the tyrannical, Darwin-loving, anti-Christian regimes of Nazism and communism. If Satan can’t kill, he perverts. The sexual revolution has shortened the lives of countless human beings who repudiated God’s instruction manual to fulfill their passions. These were justified in the name of “science” and encouraged by perverts like Kinsey and Sanger. Leftists also work to shut down speech and prevent evidence against Darwinism from being heard, as I found out at JPL at high personal cost. JPL was oh, so touchy about protecting the sensibilities of homosexuals and transgenders. A creationist, though was beyond the pale. He had to be expelled before any more of those detestable DVDs about intelligent design could be seen.As we evaluate the case for Darwinism vs Design, or Evolution vs Creation, we need to keep a wider perspective than just scientific arguments, important as they are. We need to see The Long War Against God.* Darwin’s biological model is mistakenly called a “tree of life.” Satan must love how that term mocks the tree God planted in the garden and will restore in the eternal state. Darwin’s tree is a Tree of Death, planted by Satan, the father of lies, watered and fertilized by his minions.*The book by Henry Morris, Jr with that title is a must-read classic.Recommended Resource: Dennis Prager and Adam Corolla just released their film No Safe Spaces. We haven’t seen it yet, but from the trailers and reviews, and from interviews with Prager, it appears to corroborate what this editorial is saying about leftism.(Visited 623 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享30last_img read more
