The Fulford File, By James Fulford

Liberal Denounces Sierra Club Stalinists; etc

If you`ve been following our

Sierra Club election
coverage, you will be
fascinated by this story by Karyn Strickler [The
Best Directors Money Can Buy
] about the amount
of money spent to

elect
the

pro-immigration slate.
 Karyn Striker, also a
candidate for the Sierra board, was opposed to
the immigration reformers and her article was posted on
the leftist website

Counterpunch
.  But she is scathing about Sierra
management misconduct.

There`s a

lawsuit
in progress to overturn the results of the
election. The Judge in charge of the case has stated, in
his refusal to dismiss, that

"I do
believe that there is probably going to be a pretty good
chance of success on the merits with respect to the
claim that the Sierra Club has not properly given equal
time to all of the candidates."

Stranger and Stranger

Daniel Pipes has an interesting
post about

Strange Immigration Cases
on his

website
. The first is the case of an American Muslim
Imam, who is seeking

refuge in Britain
to avoid what he says is
"political persecution"
in the US. He`s apparently
afraid that all his jihad preaching will cause him to be


wrongly
suspected of a connection to terrorism.

The British play host to a number
of guys like this, mostly

supported
by the British

Welfare
State.

The other is a French/Moroccan
refugee, who has been granted refugee status in the US,
as a fugitive from

French corruption.
 Pipes` comment:

It
would seem that between them, militant Islam and the
partial exclusion of Muslims from European society might
be changing the notion of asylum. (April 26, 2004)

I`d say it has. Especially since
the people receiving the asylum may be more dangerous
than their persecutors.

More on Insane
Asylum

The UK Spectator also has a
piece on Islam and immigration in Britain, called


How Islam has killed multiculturalism
,

by Rod Liddle.

Liddle points out that
the Labor Party, which is scrambling to recover from
recent asylum scandals, is now officially to the right
of Ray

Honeyford
, the North of England school principal who
was fired by his school board, years ago, for writing an
anti-multiculturalist article in the

Salisbury Review.

Honeyford is quoted
as saying:

"`All I
wanted was for Asian kids to have the same education as
their white counterparts, and the overwhelming majority
of Asian parents agreed,` he says. But such a view put
him beyond the pale, back then — way, way out on the
`racist` Right.  

"The same education as their
white counterparts"
included insisting that Muslim
girls should learn how to swim, something that the more
fundamentalist parents objected to.

The town of Bradford, where
Honeyford was teaching, features canals, lakes, the
river Aire and the river Wharfe, and has been

known to flood
. Honeyford would hardly have been
doing them a favor by allowing them to skip swimming
lessons for

"cultural reasons."
  Liddle continues:

“And
that`s how far the argument has traveled: a man who was
once a fellow traveler of the

Salisbury Review
and the

Monday Club
now finds himself outflanked on the
Right by the Commission for Racial Equality and a Labour
government. All too bizarre. Asked how he feels about it
today, Honeyford — a mild-mannered man and as far from
being racist as it`s possible to get — suddenly finds
his venom. `It makes me feel sick,` he told me.”

I`m not surprised that Honeyford is
sickened by this. He is unlikely to get any apologies
from the

"anti-racist" crowd.

After the fall of the Soviet Union,
conservative historian Robert Conquest was asked to do a
second edition of his book on Communist mass murder,

The Great Terror.

All its evidence had been sneered
at by

left-wing historians
. But naturally, with the
collapse of Communism, the truth had come out, and
Conquest had been

totally vindicated.

When his publisher asked if he had
a suggestion for a new title, he said "How about

"I Told You So, You —king Fools."

This would make a great title for a
Honeyford autobiography.
