How long will the British stand for this?
Speaking of anarcho-tyranny, two months ago when hundreds of Muslim protesters in London displayed signs threatening to behead Westerners for “insulting” Islam, the British police took notes—they took notes—but said they didn’t want to arrest anyone at the moment for fear of setting off a riot. Ok, that moment passed two months ago, and no one has been arrested since then. Meanwhile, Bryan Cork, 49, of Carlisle, Cumbria, in the Lake District, has been sentenced to six months in prison for standing outside a mosque last November and shouting, “Proud to be British,” and “Go back to where you came from.”
Organized public threats of terrorist mass murder and beheadings—no consequences. A lone angry drunken man shouting, “Carlisle’s white,” “Go back to where you came from”—six months in jail.
Now look at it from Bryan Cork’s point of view. He could be anybody. He’s just an ordinary man, of average intelligence, who expects his government to protect him. He sees these savages and their “clerics” at liberty in his country, openly expressing their support for Osama bin Laden and promising to destroy Britain; he sees the terrorist attack on the London Underground and sees that many Muslims support such attacks or “understand” them; he sees these people are enemies, and he doesn’t see anything happening to them, because the lawful authorities do nothing. So finally, the frustration that a normal man feels when he sees his country being invaded and not being defended, combined with some drinking and some stress in his personal life, bursts out, and he shouts, not, “I will kill you,” not, “I will behead you,” not, “Muslims must be destroyed,” but, “Carlisle’s white…. Go back to where you came from.” Which is, more or less, what the British government itself should have said 40 years ago, or 30 years ago, or five years ago, or yesterday. And for this Cork, who has never been in trouble with the law before, is arrested, tried, and imprisoned as a criminal. He doesn’t even get probation, a first-time offender. All for having normal reactions in a country where the government has abandoned its own people and is now on the side of criminals and enemies.
Such a government—a government that makes war on its own people on behalf of unassimilable aliens and jihadist savages and their “moderate” spokesmen like “Sir” Iqbal Sacranie—is not a legitimate government. The British people must realize this and stop treating it as legitimate. Down with the Labor Party. Down with the Conservative Party. En bas les tyrans. There must be a new politics in Britain. Are there not enough people left in that country who will stand up to defend her? Does England have no patriots capable of speaking and acting?
