Oxfam goes full barking moonbat

This inequality is the product of a flawed and exploitative economic system, which has its roots in neoliberal economics and the capture of politics by elites. It has exploited and exacerbated entrenched systems of inequality and oppression, namely patriarchy and structural racism, ingrained in white supremacy. These systems are the root causes of injustice and poverty. They generate huge profits accumulated in the hands of a White patriarchal elite by exploiting people living in poverty, women and racialized and historically marginalized and oppressed communities around the world.

That’s quite a long way from feeding the hungry, isn’t it?

    The more White people that are around, the richer non-White people are. The more White people, the better off Black people are.

    Non-White people cannot perform even basic government and social functions. Like making the schools work. Look at Michelle Rhee in Washington. You would think that if your Black Mayor promised to educate your children, you would love him.

    This is why rich Black people live in White suburbs. This is why South Africa is richer than Kenya much less Zimbabwe.

    The truth is they are muggles. They cannot do the magic. The average White person is Harry Potter.

  2. I stopped giving to these charlatans years ago. They take money from me without my consent through the tax system, They ain’t getting a penny more from me.

  3. Link does seem to be dead.

    You’ll notice that virtually every single person pushing racist conspiracy theories against white fellas is either (a) a comfortably middle class blackademic biting the hand that feeds it because the hand masochistically wants to be bitten; (b) one of Schrodinger’s whites, oscillating between ostentatiously denouncing “fellow whites” and explaining that they’re not white and presumably have an Israeli passport in case they find themselves inexplicably unwelcome for no reason again; or ( c) pasty white richwhites whose Kioskian rhetoric is meant to disguise pure, undistilled class-hate against the sort of men who drive white (supremacist) Transit vans and read the Sun.

    If white supremacery were real, it wouldn’t be possible for hostile foreign tribes to systematically rape thousands of little white girls and have the police, the government, and the mass media ignore, cover up or trivialise their crimes. Our advertisers certainly wouldn’t be trying to give the impression that most white women in England have negro boyfriends, and you probably wouldn’t lose your job and be threatened by Plod for making the outrageously hateful suggestion that it’s “OK to be white”.

    But then what’s it all about, Alfie?

    Oothefuck are these “White Patriarchal elite”? It’s obviously not Jeff Bezos, or Bill Gates, or those Google boys, or the people who decided that an Indian Cambridge professor spewing curry-flavoured race-hate against her hosts deserved to be promoted. If it were, they’d use their white patriarchal elitism to crush this sort of stuff, instead of supporting it.

    Emmanuel Whitestein isn’t really real. It’s not some mythic top-hatted, opressively monocled reincarnation of Cecil Rhodes they hate, they just hate you.

    Oxfam leadership sees their own reflection in the window overlooking the head office car park full of jolly nice vehicles, projects.

    (may need updating during this difficult time of lounging from home)

  5. Link works for me, Steve. It’s a PDF.

    I see it’s by “Oxfam International”. Looks very American and vibrant (absolute batshit leftist wank) at first glance. Renders my snark above slightly redundant.

  6. This from a bunch of left wing state financed lobbyists masquerading under the pretence of being a charity. They and their ilk are legion.

  7. Longrider,

    There was a time they did good work. But governments has taken over much of the work, and capitalism has eradicated famine globally, even in most of Africa. We’re pretty much down to South Sudan and Somalia. And measured in deaths, tiny. A few thousand in South Sudan.

    Then what happens is that the institution morphs. Institutions never pack their bags and go home. Even if the founders quit because the job is done, there’s people who have established a cosy sinecure and will just move it in a direction they can keep going.

    “I stopped giving to these charlatans years ago. They take money from me without my consent through the tax system, They ain’t getting a penny more from me.”

    Me too. I am just sore that the government gives them some of my taxes.

    Actually some bits of the NGO sector do decent work on poverty reduction – especially with regard to stuff like emergency and disaster relief. Their record on longer term stuff is spotty. The official overseas aid agencies (DFID as was, USAID etc) oscillate between giving money directly to foreign governments (where it’s misused/stolen) to NGOs (where it is misused a bit less, but ends up used for things that the locals don’t need). The pendulum has recently been swinging more towards states, at some point it’ll swing back. We probably just should not give them money.

  10. @BoM4 “… the institution morphs. Institutions never pack their bags and go home”

    The Iron Law of Institutions: all institutions evolve over time until their primary purpose is the continuation of the institution.

  11. “We probably just should not give them money.”

    Nope: they claim to be a charity but already take your money without your consent via Govt. So there’s no “probably” or “should” about it.

  12. @The Pedant General

    Yes, obviously we should not give Oxfam money. I was thinking about developing economies, where I am increasingly of the view that foreign aid is wrong. Primarily because it bloats the government sector in ways that are highly damaging to the country.

  13. the capture of politics by elites.

    They got this bit, and this bit only, exactly right, which is why political discourse is dominated these days by the rest of their nonsensical rant – ‘patriarchy’, ‘white supremicism’, ‘structural racism’, blah blah blah.

    BTW Oxfam is the elite, part of it anyway.

  14. Bloke in North Dorset

    You know all those non-degrees and the people who take them that we’ve been mocking for years?

    Looks like they get to have the last laugh.

  15. “I was thinking about developing economies, where I am increasingly of the view that foreign aid is wrong. Primarily because it bloats the government sector in ways that are highly damaging to the country.”

    It creates a bad incentive, that of giving more power to government. It creates more statism, generally.

    Like I believe that a large part of the sectarian problem in Northern Ireland is because of how much money gets thrown at the government. So people try and get into government to grab the loot for their tribe, most of which gets pissed away on pointless crap and job creation. If we just gave individuals the same money, equally, you’d see people not caring that much.

  16. A thought occurs that the left doesn’t care if they destroy the organizations they are marching through. An old schoolfriend of mine who became a hardcore commie at Uni once posted on FB how charities should not need to exist as the state should do all their functions.

    So they push this stuff to further their agenda, and if it leads to the organization failing civil society declines and the state expands its reach, a win-win for them (imagine for example if the RNLI went bust because of the backlash to their wokeness, chances are it would be nationalized and merged into the Coastguard).

  17. These “antiracist” organizations are the very people who came up with the idea of capitalizing words that describe race. This practice was, in fact, recently adopted by the Associate Press.

    Why are the words “black” and “white” given the same level of importance as surnames, countries and professional titles?

  18. @ken & BoM4

    Above all, Lord Bauer argued, there would be no concept of the third world at all were it not for the invention of foreign aid. Aid politicised economies, directing money into the hands of governments rather than towards profitable business. Interest groups then fought to control this money rather than engage in productive activity. Aid increased the patronage and power of the recipient governments, which often pursued policies that stifled entrepreneurship and market forces. Indeed, aid had proved “an excellent method for transferring money from poor people in rich countries to rich people in poor countries.”
    Peter Tamas Bauer (1915-2002), quoted in “The Economist”

  19. The historian Tony Judt wrote interesting stuff about how political philosophy has been taken over by economics in the last 50 or so years. So we are left with political parties that are almost indistinguishable from each other and very little real debate about policies. It occurs to me that it has created a vacuum which the left are busy filling with batshit crazy stuff like intersectional theory etc

  20. Seems pretty standard for most NGO’s these days: anti-White, anti-Western, anti-Christian, leftie boilerplate.

    The one thing they never seem to have a problem with is the populations of Africa and Asia going through the roof. It’d probably be racist to notice that though.

    No.
    It isn’t “capture by elites”
    Those people (is that the right term?) aren’t “elite”
    Self selected I can’t be wrong no self doubt maniacs, yes.
    Elites, no

    Guess what – also a trustee of Comic Relief.

  23. I’ve now read the Oxfam “report” – the proposed solution looks an awful lot like Soviet Russia but with “sustainable renewable” energy replacing oil & gas & coal (magic wand time).

  24. @ BoM4
    Capitalism has reduced famine, but the eradication is thanks to a handful of sane politicians who abolished collective farms.
    [Obviously the massive increase in productivity in western agriculture (and ICI’s supply of fertiliser technology to Russia and China)was a prerequisite but the change from collectivised Soviet Russia being a major importer of wheat from Australia to Putin’s non-collectivised Russia being the largest wheat exporter and from Haile Mariam’s collective farms creating a famine to non-collectivised Ethiopia having enough to eat is what has finished the job.]
