It’s an effing film – “Egypt bans ‘inaccurate’ Exodus film”

The Film Exodus: Gods and Kings is a nothing film. It’s a lot of noise based on a book and only benefits the people who wish to grade themselves. There is no wow 3D moment or spectacular camera angles. Even the crocodiles were wooden characters.

Considering exiled Moses stands next to the Sphynx; does look rather ridiculous. But then accuracy has never been the forte of occupiers.

Egypt bans ‘inaccurate’ Exodus film

says the BBC or The Telegraph or even The Scotsman

 

Here is rottentomatoes take on it

Exodus: Gods and Kings

TOMATOMETER 29%

Critics Consensus: While sporadically stirring, and suitably epic in its ambitions, Exodus: Gods and Kings can’t quite live up to its classic source material.

A university lecturer was suspended today after he sent a string of highly-derogatory emails attacking other cultures, sexes and religions over more than two years. 

Professor Barry Spurr, from University of Sydney, describes Aboriginal people as “human rubbish tips” and “Abos” while complaining against the inclusion of their culture in education and politics.

The poetry expert, who advises the Australian government on reforming the English literature curriculum, attacked people of different cultural and socio-economic backgrounds by using offensive terms such as “Mussies”, “Chinky-Poos”, “bogans” and “fatsoes”.

He calls Nelson Mandela a “darkie” and Desmond Tutu a “witch doctor”; describes women as “whores”; and shockingly stated that a victim of a sexual attack needs more than just “penis” put in her mouth, before it’s “stitched up”.

British people were also described as “the scum of the earth” in emails sent from September 2012 to date, to around 12 people including senior academics and officials at the university.

A rally yesterday saw students protest on the campus for the immediate sacking of Professor Spurr.

He yesterday defended his choice of words, telling New Matilda they were intended to mock the “very extreme language” used.

He said: “The comments that you refer to are largely to one recipient with whom I have had a whimsical linguistic game for many years of trying to outdo one another in extreme statements.

“These statements are not reflections of my views or his.”

The Students’ Representative Council’s education officer, Ridah Hassan, said the emails had been met with outrage from students.

She said: “Such vile, bigotry belongs back in the 1950s and it has no place at Sydney University.”

The professor argued that the curriculum should focus more on western civilisation and Judeo-Christian culture in a government report that was strongly supported by Christopher Pyne, the Minister for Education.

He also tells university colleagues and friends that 95 per cent of Australian students should not be studying in higher education, and bemoans that that view could be “derided as elitist, fascist, misogynist – the usual litany”.

His contribution to the curriculum review also suggested that Aboriginal writers’ presence in Australia’s literary tradition is “minimal”, despite him petitioning against their inclusion.

A spokesperson for Education Minister Christopher Pyne denied the government had anything to do with the appointment of Professor Spurr.

They said: “The appointment was not made by the Government. The Minister and his office had no input into the selection of any subject expert.”

“The Minister utterly rejects and finds repugnant the denigration of any minority on the basis of their sex, race, sexual orientation or beliefs,” he added.

Australia’s history never read. Blackman keeps it in his head

John Pilger – The Secret Country – The First Australians Fight Back [1985]

MUST WATCH

1985. The shameful history of persecution of the Aborigines in Australia.

NewStatesman.com – Australia: The Secret Country – By John Pilger – 28 November 2009
… The previous, openly racist government’s “intervention” into Aboriginal lands in the Northern Territory is being consolidated. In 2007, on the pretext that Aboriginal children were being sexually abused in “unthinkable numbers”, the government of John Howard suspended the Racial Discrimination Act and sent the army and “business managers” to take over black communities.
Within a year, barely reported statistics revealed how bogus it all was. Out of 7433 Aboriginal children examined by doctors, a maximum of four possible cases of sexual abuse were identified. The Australian Crimes Commission found no evidence of paedophile rings. What they found they already knew: poverty and sickness on the scale of Africa and India. …
The Indigenous affairs minister, Jenny Macklin, has decreed that unless certain communities hand over their precious freehold leases they will be denied basic services. The Northern Territory contains abundant mineral wealth, such as uranium, and has long been eyed by multinationals as a lucrative radioactive waste dump. …
… the rate of incarceration of black Australians is five times that of South Africa during the last years of apartheid. The state of Western Australia imprisons Aboriginal men at eight times the apartheid figure, an Aussie world record.
On 16 November, a 12-year-old Aboriginal boy appeared in court charged with receiving a Freddo Frog chocolate bar from a friend who had allegedly taken it from a supermarket. The supermarket did not seek prosecution. Only the international headlines forced the police to drop the case. Two thirds of Aboriginal children who have contact with the police are jailed; two thirds of white children are cautioned. A young Aboriginal man was jailed for a year for stealing £12 worth of biscuits and soft drink. …
While I have been in Australia, Irene Khan, Amnesty’s secretary general, an experienced witness of poverty and discrimination, has been travelling through the vast outback region known as Utopia. The roads are dirt; water trickles from a single standpipe in many communities. She saw children, their eyes streaming and coughs hacking. She met Elsie, who sleeps on a mattress in the desert, yet pays rent to the government. Shocking, she says.
There is currently a liberal clarion call in Australia for a Bill of Rights, and the republican movement is stirring again. These debates are meaningless until white Australia summons the moral and political imagination to offer its first people a genuine treaty, as well as universal land rights and a proper share of the country’s resources. And respect. Only then will this fortunate society earn the respect it so often craves by other means.

“I understand that they come over here against our Constitution and cross our borders,” he says. “But they’re here and they’re people. I worked side-by-side a lot of them. Don’t tell me they don’t work, and don’t tell me they don’t pay taxes. And don’t tell me they don’t have better family structures than most of us white people.”

“When you see those Mexican families, they’re together. They picnic together. They’re spending their time together,” he said. “I’ll tell you, in my way of thinking, they’re awful nice people. We need to have those people join us and be with us.”

Derisory speech or action = Contemptous mocking

1st rule De-humanize.

Kent police has sparked outrage among free speech advocates after arresting a man for posting a picture of a burning poppy on Remembrance Sunday.
The arrest is the latest example of the police’s heavy-handed approach to social networking, and comes as the Crown Prosecution Service is contemplating guidelines on how to apply rules on what can and can’t be said without risking arrest.
What was the point of winning either World War if, in 2012, someone can be casually arrested by @kent_police for burning a poppy?
“A man from Aylesham has tonight been arrested on suspicion of malicious telecommunications,” Kent police said in a statement after the arrest. “This follows a posting on a social network site of a burning poppy. He is currently in police custody awaiting interview.”

Poppy burning or how about

 

The author of this grim face-book message obviously cannot spell. Perhaps it’s the lack of education that causes people to attune themselves to extreme right wing causes. Immigration is a thorny issue especially the illegal variety. But have we lost our humanity?

 

A member of Muslims Against Crusades (MAC), was guilty of a “calculated and deliberate” insult to the dead and those who mourn them when he burned two large plastic poppies during a two-minute silence, according to the district judge in the case.
