Shocked at state of affairs

Reader comment on item: Piggybacking on Terror
in response to reader comment: THE WAY TO SELF-CAPITULATION AND SELF-ANNIHILATION OF ALL!

Submitted by William Sell (United States), Mar 8, 2007 at 04:12

Oh Yeah, this ol' American is almost afraid to comment on anything in the UK, as it seems the thought police have fairly well cemented their prohibition of all intelligent discourse, and all those HATE (thought) crimes that go with it. Seems to me the muslim has taken control there.

How can an otherwise intelligent people cede such basic freedoms as even speech (thought) to the approval of a state that is in no way representative of the traditions of a freedom loving people? Easy. Just sit still for the toxic logic of those that want to import those unlike yourselves. And then give them legal protections that citizens born and raised there don't enjoy. Then make crimes of voicing any opposition to such incredulously offensive policy. By now, your country is no longer "your" country.

The situation there in the UK is most enlightening to this old dude. We here have a natural proclivity to be "nice" to people, but we can see very well the costs of being "nice" to uninvited "guests" that not only have no graciousness as guests, but then pervert our society, as has been done very well by those muslims in your country. That the state can subdue any public outrage or even a spontaeneous uprising over the overtly antisocial behaviour you are forced to tolerate is beyond my comprehension.

We here in the states are absolutely livid over a good many policies pursued by "bushco", as even here, we are being coerced into tolerating an invasion that may not bode well for either political party. Not to mention the debacle in Iraq. Which, undoubtedly will end up bringing a few million of these undesirables here, against ALL public opinion. In fact, we want to end ALL immigration and begin deporting those without legal citizenship forthwith, but, just as in the UK, it seems some unidentifiable entity is controlling not only policy, but the debate itself. I am afraid to ask, but who, or what might this entity be?

This IS dangerous ground in the UK, but I'll ask it anyway, as I doubt the Queen will extradite me for it. We can be sure of who it AIN'T, but after that, it gets a little weird. I'm quite sure few if any will pursue an answer, but it can't hurt to know who the players are and what they represent. When a people not only are not in control of their elected, their courts, their borders, have been denied the right to meaningful protest, and cannot tolerate discourse on the question of their very identity, ARE THEY YET A PEOPLE ? No. YOU are NOT a people. You are not even a nation, only a grid on a map, easily replaced by any available group. You have ceded your state, your NATION to a group that would have YOU in a concentration camp, as evidenced by it's proclivity to jail you for simply speaking an unpopular idea. Consider the repurcussions of a total rejection of all they've done for ya. Just, think about it, if you're bold enough. Thanks for the shining example of Political Correctness, and it's attendant dangers to liberty in every form.
