I would hazard a guess that never in history have there been as many platforms for individuals, organisations and countries to voice their opinions and publish facts. It is sad that together with thie increased opinion we are greeted by the ‘Snowflake’ Generation and their P#Politically Correct’ fear of ‘Free Speech’ with their pathetic bleating at the vaguest perceived slight and absolute terror at being confrnted by opinions and points of view they do not share.
This singling out of a critic of the minority language of Wales being forced upon the majority, both in its compulsory use in education and the compulsion to use it in everyday life. To add insult to injury the majority are forced to subsidise this utterly ridiculous attempt to force this tiny minority language on the majority.
Now we have these odious people and their vile and selfish policies supported by an unquestioning and irresponsible social media platform!
It is not as if this individual, who I know, has demanded this tiny minority language be banned – he has merely pointed out the undeniable truth that it is the language of a tiny minority, is largely irrelevant in the world at large, is used to restrict job opportunities for the clear majority in Wales and has been ‘weaponised’ by the majority causing divisions and distrust amongst the majority.
The damage done to Wales and the huge costs incurred by this extreme and unpleasant minority seem never to be given an honest airing for fear of attack and abuse behind the members of the crachack and their vile supporters – a claque who would seem to have nothing to offer Wales or the peoples of Wales beyond harm, division and costs that they seek others to pay!
Consider the obscene costs in broadcasting of this toxic policy, wherein S4C alone receives £80M a year to subsidise program production in the minority language and do look for yourself and you will find S4C can barely command an audience much of the time and its peak viewing figures in the minority language are for a parochial ‘soap operta’ which on occasions tops 30,000 viewers!
Welsh broadcasting is an abject failure even in the main language of Wales spoken by ALL Wales’ peoples! Radio Wales is currently celebrating its 40th anniversary and is currently delivering the lowest listener figures in its entire history. It is not alone in this calamitous showing with all local radio stations struggling to justify their existence. Local TV is even more ignored both for its lack of content and its shameless amateurism.
Nowadays that one works in local radio or local TV on a persons’ CV is more a measure of their failure than of ther success and skill – coming above announcing at a railway station and more on a par with ‘Hospital Radio’ where it still exists!
As every speaker of the minority language of Wales can and does speak the main Welsh language of English that huge amounts of public money are squandered on a pretence of bi-lingualism in some areas of Government is farcical and nothing short of utterly irresponsible – particularly as it requires constant costly translation services to avoid life threatening misunderstandings.
Do be minded that the owner of @GlasnostorgUK is not the only one to be the victim of vile and imature abuse by the vituperative and offensive minority language speakers in Wales and Welsh Nationalists in general. I note there have been boasts on the internet, by some of these odious deadbeats that they have been deliberately inconveniencing Pizza vendors & other take away delivery food suppliers, which does much to expose their stupidity as they place false delivery requests that cost the vendors a considerable amount and barely inconvenience their targets for more than a moment or two – rightly the Police are currently tracking down these criminals, with the help both of physical evidence, screenshots, recordings and ISPs.
It would seem sustained and organised complaints by the Welsh nats using apparent lies and deceit got Glasnost UK permanently banned from Twitter by the look of it (I do know two of the instigators and both I believe are from the S4C).
Their key approach would seem to have been ‘victimhood’ claiming people like me are demonising their minority language which I and the majority are expected not only to subsidise but also put up with by compulsion! Their claim is it is at risk of extinction – I have never used abuse/hatred etc. but I have received loads of it from the malicious and threatening tiny minority, which includes death threats (I had police ‘protection’ for nearly two years)!
Here is a copy of the letter this tiny minority have induced Twitter to send me:

Here is an example from a different field but the same process was used to close down debate and free speech…
Ross Cameron you have been Deleted — how the Delete-People-Tactic destroys discussion
UPDATE: People are still angry over this on Twitter.
Unpermitted words have a Weapons-Grade power over useful words at a rate of a billion to one
Speak a Forbidden Term and your entire career can be neutralized instantly. It doesn’t matter how many other useful ideas or contributions you make. Any breach unleashes a tidal wave of unrighteous indignation. Then the honest players fold like daffodils in a breeze and leap to carry out the judgement of twitter mobs. Why do good people help the Lynch Mob every time?
The permitted word list is defined by the PC mob, it changes at random, and post hoc, and only applies to people who threaten collectivist power. Eminent scientists can be called “deniers” as if they are mental morons, they can be likened to pedophiles, asbestos-pushers and Hitler, and that’s not only OK, those people get lavish taxpayer funded careers and prizes. (Not mentioning any names Stephan Lewandowsky and Robyn Williams.)
Freedom of Speech is under threat – we have to stand up to this
Tuesday, Ross Cameron said the four forbidden words “slanty-eyed, yellow-skinned“. Rude, yes, dynamite, no. They were better left unsaid, and potentially offensive, but not a sackable offence.
Suddenly the experienced former MP and long time commentator was a Proven Racist, which, like a dose of social Ebola, means he had to be excised lest his condition infect the rest of the show, or even the entire channel. Lordy, deranged Twitter Mobs might call Sky The-Channel-of-Racists! But here’s the thing, they already do that anyway.
As Andrew Bolt points out Ross was defending China. Co-host Rowan Dean told him off for sounding like an advert.
Ross Cameron has made decades of contributions to the national dialogue, with millions of useful words, but none of that counts if we reduce a whole person to a binary dot. In a one-nil national debate you are either a person or a racist! Thus everything he ever says on any topic can now be met with the inane “rascist” namecalling. That is, as long as we let namecallers control the conversation.
Think about the incredible power of these four words. Who died? Which trade deal was axed? The over-reaction (by non-Chinese people) is a patronizing put-down, as if the Chinese are such weak petals they can’t handle a colorful description or an old demeaning cliche.
Kevin Rudd thinks it’s all so important he declared Rupert Murdoch practically employed Ross Cameron to say this. “They knew exactly what they were doing”. Apparently defending China for 6.9 out of 7 minutes is an “extreme right wing view”. Shows what KRudd knows about politics.
Instead of sacking him, Outsiders could have invited some actual Chinese people on the show to reply. Ross could’ve explained himself face to face (if they wanted that, but they probably have more important things to discuss). Let him face that music. Why not find out whether Chinese people preferred Ross’s commentary to Rowan’s. That’s what a national conversation looks like. Not like a witchhunt.
Ross Cameron on Outsiders
A seven minute long monologue from Ross about the importance and achievements of China. Forbidden words at 5:20.
The Punishment Does Not Fit “the Crime”
Sacking him feeds the DeletePeople Movement, giving them a power they don’t deserve and destroying any chance of a sophisticated national debate.
Read the quote without the four bolded words. Ho hum. The spirit and intent of Ross’s point is clear:
I’m just saying to you that the Chinese civilisation is the oldest continuous civilisation in the world. OK, It’s not going anywhere. 1.4 billion people, it’s got about a sixth of the world’s population. All of them are studying English. If you go to Disneyland in Shanghai on any typical morning of the week you will see 20,000 black haired, slanty eyed, yellow skinned Chinese desperate to get into Disneyland because they like and enjoy and are embracing many aspects of Western culture…
We find the Chinese to be Australia’s single most important trading partner. The Chinese provide the greatest number of purchasers of Australian education exports, the greatest number of foreign students. We find a million Chinese coming to Australia each year to visit. One out of four ships leaving an Australian port goes straight to China.
Our national conversation is the most precious thing. It’s how we find and filter the truths, the good ideas. As long as we let the namecalling mobs DeletePeople the whole national conversation becomes a parody. It’s a minefield.
The true haters want to reduce the world to namecalling and a binary Yes:No answer.
He shouldn’t have said it, so lets ask him not to do it again, and put him back on TV.
