Australia: Iraq war veteran fought off EIGHT Muslim men after they attacked his wife
Muslim values at work: Disregard for "Kuffar" law and contempt for women
A retired Iraq war veteran who fought off eight Muslim men after they attacked his wife has tried to put the record straight on what exactly happened that day.
Kyle Tyrrell, 48, had an altercation with fishermen on Victoria's Surf Coast a year ago while standing up for his wife Liana.
Mr Tyrrell claimed that Liana was punched in the face at the Cosy Corner beach, in Torquay, after one of the men put a crab pot in the water and she told him the area was a marine sanctuary and fishing was banned.
In the fight that took place on Sunday, January 24, 2016, Mr Tyrrell suffered minor injuries, while at least one of the fishermen was taken to hospital. No charges were laid.
The retired lieutenant-colonel claimed that the attack was racially and culturally motivated after his wife was called a white slut and a white whore by the men.
However criticism that he has received about the incident on Facebook persuaded him to set the record straight on the incident. He confirmed that the men were Muslim and said he would 'do it again in a heartbeat'.
Mr Tyrrell claimed the Muslim man took offence to being told what to do by a woman and unleashed a tirade of abuse at her, but the fact that she ignored him only enraged him even more.
'His mates got close to me and then he made a run for my wife, that's when I ran at him, he threw a punch which I ducked and the fight started. At no time could either my wife, daughter or I safely walk away,' Mr Tyrrell wrote.
'At that point five more joined the fight, one punching my wife as she attempted to get our daughter up the beach.'
At one stage one of the men said to Mrs Terrell: 'Your husband needs to teach you a lesson.'
'I would do the same thing again in a heartbeat, in fact I would do the same thing for any woman I saw in that situation not just my wife,' he concluded the Facebook post.
British police accused of preventing mother from taking sick baby to hospital after 20 minute row over seat in taxi
Under 13 years of Labour Party rule the once-respected British police degenerated badly. A lot of them are just goons now. What were four of them doing accosting a lone woman with a sick child?
A taxi passenger mum trying to get a breathless, sick baby to hospital claims police obstructed her in a stand-off about child seats.
Lucy Flynn, 25, ordered a taxi after her 15-month-old son Alex turned red and began wheezing.
Desperate Lucy says she was urgently trying to get the tot to hospital when patrol police officers pulled over the private hire car and insisted that the infant should use a child seat.
During the 20-minute stand-off which ensued, Lucy says she showed officers a government webpage on her phone which showed it was, in fact, legal for a child to be transported in a taxi where the driver doesn’t provide the correct seat.
But the officers are said to have kept mum and her distressed child at the roadside for 20 minutes and even suggested they walk to hospital before finally allowing the driver to complete the journey.
GMP now say they are investigating the mum’s complaint.
Advice from the government’s gov.uk site states: “A child can travel without a child car seat in some circumstances. Taxis and minicabs: If the driver doesn’t provide the correct car seat, children can travel without one - but only if they travel on a rear seat and wear an adult seat belt if they’re 3 or older.”
Little Alex spent seven hours being treated for a viral infection and conjunctivitis at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital. He has since recovered at home.
But mother-of-two Lucy, from Clayton, has lodged an official complaint and is demanding an apology from Greater Manchester Police.
Lucy, who works in HR, told the M.E.N: “They pulled us over and said ‘you should have a car seat in a taxi - it’s dangerous’. Alex was crying in the taxi. His cheeks were bright red. He was wheezing and breathing really fast.
“I told the police three or four times he was really ill. He was visibly poorly and I told them I wanted to get him to A&E and we didn’t need a car seat because we were in a taxi. It was freezing and I had a little baby in my hands. One of them told me if it was an emergency we should have called an ambulance. I didn’t need an ambulance. I just needed to get to the hospital as best I could. I looked the law up on my phone and showed them it was legal. The officer just said ‘I don’t think that’s the main concern - the main concern at the moment is the child’.
“But they just kept me there and I hadn’t even broken the law. I was panicking. There were four police officers there and surely one of them would know it’s not against the law. The way I was treated was so rude. I feel disgusted and let down. The police are supposed to protect us.”
The law says a child can travel in a taxi without a child seat if the driver has not provided one and if the child is on a rear seat.
A spokesman for GMP said: “We have received a complaint in relation to an incident that took place on Upper Brook Street, Manchester, on Monday 26 December 2016. We are currently investigating this complaint and it would therefore be inappropriate to comment further at this stage.”
British PM to revive Tory pledge on cutting benefits for migrants
Theresa May is preparing to use Brexit to fulfil David Cameron’s manifesto promise to stop EU migrants from claiming benefits.
Senior government figures are studying whether to stop newly arrived migrants from the continent from claiming tax credits and other in-work benefits. This was pledged in the Tory manifesto but Mr Cameron was able to negotiate only a temporary compromise with the rest of the EU last year. The deal was nullified when Britain voted to leave the union in June.
Now Mrs May is looking at resurrecting the idea and bringing EU migrants into line with those from outside the continent. A government source said that implementing the plan would be seen to make a difference. The change could relieve pressure on the exchequer by reducing the tax credit bill and ministers hope that it may deter some EU citizens from seeking work in post-Brexit Britain. Downing Street said no decisions had been made and sources emphasised that there was no “magic bullet” for migration.
According to the Migration Observatory in Oxford, 316,000 of the 2.28 million EU citizens in the UK receive in-work benefits, although Revenue & Customs suggests that the figure could be closer to half a million.
Mrs May is preparing to make a series of decisions about the post-Brexit immigration system, which could determine the course of trade negotiations with the rest of the EU.
She must decide whether to give EU citizens preferential treatment over those from the rest of the world, whether businesses are given hard limits on the numbers of EU migrants they can employ, and whether to allow some low-skill migration to continue for areas such as agriculture.
New entry criteria will have to be drawn up to determine who is allowed in. They could be based on the demands of specific sectors or on a simple salary threshold.
David Davis, the secretary of state for exiting the EU, recently hinted that he did not want to see business put at a disadvantage by curbs on low-skilled migrants. Philip Hammond, the chancellor, is also likely to be in favour of a flexible, business-friendly solution.
Business groups fear, however, that the prime minister is the most hostile of all around the cabinet table to low-skilled EU migrants, and the least sympathetic to business pleas.
Signalling her determination in her speech to the Tory conference in October to bring down migration, Mrs May said: “If you’re one of those people who lost their job, who stayed in work but on reduced hours, took a pay cut as household bills rocketed, or — and I know a lot of people don’t like to admit this — someone who finds themselves out of work or on lower wages because of low-skilled immigration, life simply doesn’t seem fair. It feels like your dreams have been sacrificed in the service of others. So change has got to come.”
Early drafts by Amber Rudd, the home secretary, of the proposed immigration changes brought her into conflict with Mr Hammond in private. The two are understood to be working much more closely and she has made clear that she wants to support the chancellor. Treasury officials from the productivity unit are carrying out work on economic migration in parallel to the Home Office team.
Ms Rudd has also angered Leave supporters by adopting a harder line in the Brexit cabinet committee, suggesting that security co-operation with the EU must not be used as a bargaining chip in the forthcoming negotiations. One leading Brexiteer called Ms Rudd’s stance “unambitious”.
A feminist censorship attempt in Australia
A small family business has fallen victim to a blatant attack against free speech, with so-called feminist keyboard warriors swamping it with negative customer reviews over a decision to screen a controversial men’s rights documentary.
Ultima Function Centre in northwestern Melbourne, run by the Georgiades family for 13 years, has been forced to defend its decision to hire space for a private screening of the film The Red Pill, after being accused of “supporting misogynist propaganda”.
While [unattractive] Melbourne woman Lizzie Johnsen, a self-proclaimed “feminist killjoy ... social justice warrior”, is one of several people who hit out at the film, many of the one-star reviews of the company subsequently posted to its Facebook page came from Britain, The Netherlands and Canada.
The latest bid to censor the film — a feature-length documentary exploring the men’s rights movement by award-winning US filmmaker Cassie Jaye — comes as the organisers of an upcoming screening in Brisbane have been forced to keep the location secret, having attracted threats of violence.
The Australian’s film critic David Stratton yesterday expressed dismay. “Any attempt at censoring the arts, including film, is to be condemned, especially when the would-be censors use false information — in other words, lies — to intimidate those with different ideas,” Stratton said.
In October last year, the owner of Melbourne’s Kino Cinema cancelled the Australian premiere of the film after receiving a 2000-signature online petition. The premiere eventually went ahead at another secret location; a Sydney screening the following month was similarly scrapped.
Ultima Function Centre manager Nick Georgiades said he became concerned about the reputational damage to his Keilor business when negative comments started to appear on his Facebook page last month in response to publicity over the Boxing Day screening.
The barrage can be traced to a Facebook post under Ms Johnsen’s name, alerting followers to the venue’s plan to screen the film.
“I’m sure they’d appreciate you letting them know about the film and how it goes against Australian values, and gives a platform to rape apologists and people who hate women,” she wrote.
Attempts to contact Ms Johnsen yesterday were unsuccessful.
After her post came a stream of one-star reviews for the business, many accompanied by a pro-forma statement railing against white supremacy, patriarchy, bigotry and misogyny, followed by variations on the claim: “I am compelled to give a poor rating for this establishment.”
Mr Georgiades, who watched the film and spoke to the producer before deciding to accept the booking, attempted to reason with the protesters, pointing out that by trying to silence the movie they were “proving the very point the director is trying to make”. He noted many conceded they had not watched the film, which has yet to secure a commercial release.
“It didn’t seem to be promoting any violence against women, as has been claimed,” he told The Australian yesterday.
“Whether you agree with the documentary or not, it’s not really the point.
“It would have been quite easy for me to say, ‘it isn’t worth the trouble’, and tell them to go screen it somewhere else. But that isn’t really fair; we should be able to do anything we like, as long as it’s not illegal and no one is getting hurt.”
Instead, Mr Georgiades hired extra security for the event, which was attended by about 70 people.
While the reviews of the film worldwide have been mixed, such is the backlash that attempts to screen it are going underground.
Men’s Rights Brisbane will host a hometown screening on January 14 but will not disclose the location until hours beforehand to avoid a repeat of Melbourne and Sydney.
The group has already received abuse via Twitter, with the account of one individual suspended after tweeting: “I really hope someone shoots up that event — dead MRA’s (Men’s Rights Activists) — cool!”.
Italy plans mass deportations as half a million migrants arrive
Italy plans to adopt a tough approach to illegal migrants after a year that saw a record influx of refugees and the killing of the Berlin Christmas market attacker by the police in Milan.
It marks the first major policy change by Paolo Gentiloni, the prime minister who assumed office last month, and is a break with the more laid-back approach of Matteo Renzi, his predecessor and party colleague.
On Friday Franco Gabrielli, the chief of police, sent a two-page directive to stations across the country ordering them to increase efforts to identify and deport economic migrants who are not entitled to asylum.
Political correctness is most pervasive in universities and colleges but I rarely report the incidents concerned here as I have a separate blog for educational matters.
American "liberals" often deny being Leftists and say that they are very different from the Communist rulers of other countries. The only real difference, however, is how much power they have. In America, their power is limited by democracy. To see what they WOULD be like with more power, look at where they ARE already very powerful: in America's educational system -- particularly in the universities and colleges. They show there the same respect for free-speech and political diversity that Stalin did: None. So look to the colleges to see what the whole country would be like if "liberals" had their way. It would be a dictatorship.
