Frank Furedi on Lady Hussey, “If she is racist, so am I.”

with 14 comments

Frankie Blurts it Out.

The entire British Establishment is complicit in the moral lynching of Lady Hussey!

Alas, one of the unfortunate side-effects of Substack is that, unlike Frankie’s other Organs, Spiked, the Daily Mail and so forth, you can go on, and on, and on.

“Since the days that I could afford to ride in a taxi I have always asked cabbies with surnames that I do not recognise ‘where are you from’. …

 I was in New York and after a 5-minute banter about our mutual origins with an Ethiopian taxi driver my fellow passenger – a Boston based academic – informed me that some would construe my questions as acts of micro-aggression…

According to the Orwellian sounding guidance ‘Tool: Recognizing Microaggressions and the Messages They Send’ circulated by the University of California in Los Angeles, I was indeed guilty as charged.

..

The term micro-aggression is associated with the publications of counselling psychologist, Derald Wing Sue,

Human communication has always been a complicated business. “

The Moral Lynching of Lady Hussey.

Reporting from the Duck and Dog Ferudi’s old mucker Brendan O’Neill gives his own angle on a story 99% of people ignore at their peril.

Lady Hussey and the tyranny of identity.

That Lady Hussey may have been brusque, yes – posh people often are – but to damn her in the twilight of her life as a racist unfit for public life is out of order. It feels like there’s a lot of sympathy for Hussey, and anger at the arbitrary power of the new elites to destroy reputations on a whim.

 Cancel culture now rules even in the House of Windsor. Their treatment of Lady Hussey, their supposed friend, was far more egregious than Lady Hussey’s treatment of Ms Fulani…….Now it’s sedition to disrespect the edicts of identitarianism. Lady Hussey’s fate is a warning sign of the tyranny of identity to come.

As they say down our nearest rub-a-dub-dub, “That new elite identitarianism has been egregious towards Lady Hussey, give you that Brendy.”

The main hobby of Ferudi remains defending Orbán’s ‘s regime in Hungary – which is not at all identitarian, racist, populist or far right.

  1. Very noticeable the Palace folded so quickly on this. The Left are winning everywhere in the West. Say what you will about Alinsky, Marcuse and Foucault, they have been vindicated by history. There is a full-blown Cultural Revolution taking place and it’s wonderful. The Right are pole axed. Labour government soon in UK and the Democrats in America look like winning in 2024 and after. The Democrats have a highly organized electoral ground game unseen before. Permanent Left government in the West going forward.

    • “Permanent Left government in the West going forward”.

      Full points for an amusing bit of trolling.

      • I suppose if you lived in the US and were from the left you would vote Democrat.

        Can’t see much to identify them on the left, even the tiny group called The Squad, “The Squad has been said to represent the advocacy of progressive policies by the younger political generation, such as Medicare for All and the Green New Deal, ” They sound a but like the Young Liberals in their heyday.

        The gulf with our political culture is enormous, although no doubt there are those who adopt a bit of US progressive-liberalism and have similar academic left posturing.

        To give a bleeding obvious example, the present leader of the Labour Party, Keir Starmer, was linked the ‘Pabloite’ tendance marxiste-révolutionnaire internationale (TMRI) for up to 4 years in his twenties, perhaps more, sufficiently close to have been at one of their meetings in Paris, circa 1986, their final World Congress (I was there).

        It is hard, if not impossible to think of any leading US Democrat, or indeed any US Democrat, having that background.

      • Don’t know why the Left are so negative. We control every State institution, every academic institution and school, every large corporation is now Left. I just see winning and victory everywhere. We won again in the state of Georgia tonight. The Winner Senator Warnock is a geniune left progressive. Unthinkable a few years ago. The Right are finished and are turning towards conspiracy theories and their core vote is literally dying off. Fantastic future for Left politics and the Democratic Party are leading the way. Maybe things aren’t so bright in Britain but Labour will be in soon and they could be in for another 20 years if they learn the lessons from America.

        • Perhaps it’s time to eliminate the terms ‘left’ and ‘right’ from the political lexicon, in favour of more specific and meaningful terms? When a bit of woke-washing can allow monopoly capital to present itself as ‘left’, the term has lost whatever descriptive usefulness it may once have had.

            Well, you’re obviously not LGBTQIA2S+. Visibility and acceptance matter. The excellent Biden administration appointed the first Trans Admiral Rachel Levine to the US Navy. This matters. Meanwhile, the Chinese Communist Party are cracking down on LGBTQIA2S+ rights and militarizing their society. I know whose side I am on. These things shouldn’t be sneered at.

            • What a fun false dichotomy!

              One must either worship “Woke” American corporations like Starbucks which puts up rainbow flags while working hard to break unionisation efforts or the genocidal CCP!

              • We need to bring together the greatest intersectional coalition based upon progressive minimalist demands. The Democrats are doing this based on the Community Organizing model of Saul Alinsky allied with Corporate and Academic capture. Been decades in the making but we are seeing the fruits now. The whole economic/equity thing is the last stage. Be patient.
                Standing outside factory gates selling papers, that no-one wanted to buy, is done. Those factories have all been offshored anyway. The Democratic Party model is the future.

                  You are just like the tankies who swear that the CCP is suddenly going to nationalise everything and “pop” China will be fully communist. Except you worship the likes of Zuckerberg and Bezos because they slap a few rainbow flags up once a year.

                    It’s way, way deeper than that. The Progressive Left ‘Great Reset’ will revolutionize the World and is the next stage of human evolution. It’s incredibly exciting and we are only at the beginning. To quote Klaus Schwab (a man I deeply admire), “The Great Reset/fourth industrial revolution (will) lead to a fusion of our physical, digital and biological identity” ….. or you can keep arguing about long dead Russians. There will be only two types of people in future : Dissidents or those who embrace.

          • He is just having a bit of fun here. Obviously no-one sane would call a company like Nike with its innumerable sweatshops “Left” just because it pretends to care about gay and black people.

  2. Sorry, but there is a direct line between Ngozi Fulani/Marlene Headley and the Sussexes Vis their tame photogher Misan Harriman. If a person turns up at a reception dressed in an Africanized costume, is it not legitimate to ask where they are from. The early accounts say she asked where this Hustler’s people were from, and obviously she is of immigrant stock so I agree with Spiked on this issue. Investigate SistahSpace that’s what I say.

  3. There’s an upsurge in industrial militancy in America. In the hospitals, the railways. Even on Amazon. The Democrats are not supporting it at all, in fact they are acting against it. Whilr the defense and development of democratic and civil rights is to be applauded, I can:t help bit think basic workers rights should get a look in to
