The Inevitable Decline of Great Britain
Powerline ^ | 05/24/2013 | John Hinderaker

Posted on 05/25/2013 11:06:44 AM PDT by Rusty0604

Although other bystanders watched in horror and police waited helplessly for armed officers to arrive, Gemini modestly insisted her [sic] and her mother were not heroes and had done what anyone else would do. The idea of policemen in one of the world’s major cities “wait[ing] helplessly for armed officers to arrive,” while murderers parade up and down the street soaked in blood and the body of a half-beheaded soldier lies in the street, is almost unbelievable. But that doesn’t mean the British are entirely lax with respect to law enforcement. No, not at all: it just depends which laws you are talking about. If you mean laws against carving up innocent people on the street with knives, well, the Brits have a problem. But if you complain about such an outrage on Facebook or Twitter, you’re going to be crushed by the full majesty of the law.

Western Europe is about 15 years ahead of the U.S. in aborting and contracepting itself out of existence.

This was a very brazen attack. The Muslim terrorists hacked this guy to death in broad daylight, with many other people seeing this happen.

I’m sure this will only embolden them. Why? Because they see that bystanders will not intervene as they commit their atrocities in the name of Allah. We may well see more of this type of attack. If they have no fear of bystanders intervening, they may think they can do anything, anywhere.

And remember these guys don’t care if they get killed anyway. They are dreaming of their 72 virgins which Allah will give them for carrying out Allah’s will.

If the killers hadn’t hung around 20 minutes waiting for the cops, they would have really gotton away with it. Or they could have killed more infidels with everyone else just watching.

Here in our area about 20 CCL holders would have pulled out a weapon and shot them down in the street. Half the state of GA walks around carrying. Of course now that I think about that kind of stuff never happens here. I wonder if there is a correlation? :-)

Britain and the U.S. will be here until the end. Britain is Ephraim and the U.S. is Manasseh. Why do you think we are the main supporters of Israel? Times might look bad, but the muslims will not take over either country.

If a member of The Religion of Peace had tried this in my hometown, he would have been shot to death before the second stroke.

And if this is the future our feckless government thinks they can force on us, they’ve got another think coming.

Mother country .... Whatever happened to “ ... never, never will be slaves”?

I think Hinderaker makes the point perfectly. I was a bit disappointed in Mark Steyn’s article on this. Not quite up to his usual standard.

Anyway, I’m sending Hinderaker out to my email list.

What are the British going to do when something 20 times what happened
happens? You had better change laws and arm up Brits. Unless you do,
you will be the first country to go. Appeasement and bribing the Muslims
is NOT the way to go.

Britain ruled the waves around the world. The sun never set on the British Empire. Kings looked down and emperors frowned, when they said, “stop”.

Looking at the UK today and saying that decline is inevitable, is forecasting history.

It was the change in immigration laws throughout the West which brought in the flood of immigrants, we weren’t outnumbered and conquered, the left just wrote new immigration laws.

It was the stolen 1960 election which did this to America.

From unionizing government, to Vietnam, to the 1965 Immigration Act, JFK was the end of us.

“However, if there is one man who can take the most credit for the 1965 act, it is John F. Kennedy. Kennedy seems to have inherited the resentment his father Joseph felt as an outsider in Boston’s WASP aristocracy. He voted against the McCarran-Walter Act of 1952, and supported various refugee acts throughout the 1950s. In 1958 he wrote a book, A Nation of Immigrants, which attacked the quota system as illogical and without purpose, and the book served as Kennedy’s blueprint for immigration reform after he became president in 1960. In the summer of 1963, Kennedy sent Congress a proposal calling for the elimination of the national origins quota system. He wanted immigrants admitted on the basis of family reunification and needed skills, without regard to national origin. After his assassination in November, his brother Robert took up the cause of immigration reform, calling it JFK’s legacy. In the forward to a revised edition of A Nation of Immigrants, issued in 1964 to gain support for the new law, he wrote, “I know of no cause which President Kennedy championed more warmly than the improvement of our immigration policies.” Sold as a memorial to JFK, there was very little opposition to what became known as the Immigration Act of 1965.”

I went into a public-’ouse to get a pint o’ beer,
The publican ‘e up an’ sez, “We serve no red-coats here.”
The girls wot wearin burkhas they laughed an’ giggled fit to die,
I outs into the street again an’ to myself sez I:
O it’s Kuffar this, and Kuffar that, and “Kuffar, go away”;
But it once was Mister Atkins”, when the band begins to play,
The band begins to play, my boys, the band begins to play,
O it once was Mister Atkins, when the band begins to play.

I looked out for a theatre as sober as could be,
They built a halal reading room room, but ‘adn’t none for me;
They burned to ground the gallery and all the music-’alls,
And then they comes to fightin’, Lord! “Behead the infidels!”
For it’s Kuffar this, and Kuffar that and “Kuffar, wait outside”;
But it once was “Special train for Atkins” when the trooper’s on the tide,
The troopship’s on the tide, my boys, the troopship’s on the tide,
But it once was “Special train for Atkins” when the trooper’s on the tide.

Yes, makin’ mock o’ uniforms that guard you while you sleep
Is cheaper than them uniforms, an’ they’re starvation cheap;
An’ stabbing British soldiers when they’re goin’ home from barrack
Is five times better religion than then turn the other cheek.
Now it’s Kuffar this, and Kuffar that, and “Kuffar, Come to Allah?”
It once was “Thin red line of ‘eroes” when the drums begin to roll,
The drums begin to roll, my boys, the drums begin to roll,
It once was “Thin red line of ‘eroes” when the drums begin to roll.

We once were thin red ‘eroes, an we once were blackguards too,
just single men in barricks, most Englishmen like you;
An’ if sometimes our country fights and kills to save our random policy,
Dont blame us when your Jihad fails, your mates did start this fallacy;
Now it’s Kuffar this, and Kuffar that, and “Kuffar, turn the cheek”,
But it’s “Please to walk in front, sir”, when there’s EDL in sight,
The EDL’s in sight, my boys, the EDL’s in sight,
O it’s “Please to walk in front, sir”, when the EDL’s in sight.

You talk o’ better food for yous, an’ schools, an’ jobs, an’ all:
Our fathers built this land and welcomed yours from their old hell.
Don’t falsely claim you’re here to live and try to force us down
The hell hole path your former land embraced then threw you out..
For it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Behead him now, Kuffar!”
But it’s our religion is all about peace, say it now kuffar!
So Say it now, Kuffar, an’ Kuffar say it if you please;
An’ Tommy ain’t a bloomin’ fool — you bet that Tommy sees!

Amen plus centuries of war and empire building didn't help. We still have a chance to wise-up but there has to be more honoring of family mom and less single mom.

Recessional
By Rudyard Kipling

1897
God of our fathers, known of old,
Lord of our far-flung battle-line,
Beneath whose awful Hand we hold
Dominion over palm and pine—
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
Lest we forget—lest we forget!

The tumult and the shouting dies;
The Captains and the Kings depart:
Still stands Thine ancient sacrifice,
An humble and a contrite heart.
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
Lest we forget—lest we forget!

Far-called, our navies melt away;
On dune and headland sinks the fire:
Lo, all our pomp of yesterday
Is one with Nineveh and Tyre!
Judge of the Nations, spare us yet,
Lest we forget—lest we forget!

If, drunk with sight of power, we loose
Wild tongues that have not Thee in awe,
Such boastings as the Gentiles use,
Or lesser breeds without the Law—
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
Lest we forget—lest we forget!

For heathen heart that puts her trust
In reeking tube and iron shard,
All valiant dust that builds on dust,
And guarding, calls not Thee to guard,
For frantic boast and foolish word—
Thy mercy on Thy People, Lord!

And remember these guys don’t care if they get killed anyway.

And this is why we here in the U.S. should advertise that our CCW hollow-points are filled with lard. They may not fear physical death, but if they know allah (small "a" intentional) will turn from them in disgust . . .

I don't think that's an entirely accurate description of what happened.

As I understand it (and the reporting on what actually happened has been atrocious), the perps ran him over, then jumped out of the car and attacked him. Bystanders not unreasonably thought they were seeing a traffic accident followed by the people in the car trying to help the victim.

By the time people figured out what was happening, it was pretty clear the guy was already most sincerely dead. So jumping into the fight wouldn't save him, and might very well get you killed.

It's one thing to act heroically to try to save the life of someone being attacked, and quite another to defend a corpse at risk of your own life.

I don't know what would have happened had they continued the attack by going after the audience.

I'm not really defending the bystanders, just pointing out that this was not really, or not entirely, a case of people standing by while murder done.

Yes, changing the law in 1965 is what led to this mass importation of immigrants, not Roe v Wade, in fact the rewriting of American immigration was to deliberately import the voters who protect liberal policies and block pro-life legislation and all the other politics of the democrat party.

America’s population did not suddenly shrink into oblivion and then was conquered in a war or something, the law changed.

Read post 14 again, this was a plan by the democrat party.

I went to school in New Zealand

We sang that song at school for Armistice Day (Nov 1)and for ANZAC Day (April 25)

Both were school holidays and most of us were in the Boy Scouts and Girl Guides

We represented our troops and had our own wreaths to lay at the Centotaph on the actual day where we sang that song again plus others..

ANZAC = Australian and New Zealand Army Corps

The day commemoraters April 25 1915 when the ANZACs were slaughtered by the Moslems at Gallipoli..

If you want to fight terrorism don't even bother until you reach their level of opposition. Anything less is seen as what it is... weak.
