An Englishman is beheaded in his front yard. The world is silent.
Patrick McGee, a 63 year old unmarried pensioner living in the diverse Crumpsall District of Manchester, England, was murdered and beheaded in his front garden at about 9 p.m. on December 15. The murder was reported in the Mail on the 17th, and, thanks to a reader who quickly sent me the item, I immediately posted something on it, at 12:43 a.m., December 17. It is now noon, December 18. I just googled “”patrick mcgee beheaded”“, and the most-read page at the Google results page is my VFR entry. So it’s a repetition of the coverage of the Canadian beheading last summer, when VFR was the most visited site that used the word “Muslim” in connection with the likelihood that the beheader was a Muslim. But here the lack of mainstream coverage is worse: VFR is the most visited site that simply states that Patrick McGee was beheaded. Second on the results page is the Mail story that I originally linked. There’s also a BNP item, “Pensioner’s Beheading Passes Unremarked.” There’s a blog at the Telegraph, quoting (without attribution) the BNP item. There’s a Stormfront item, which copies the Mail article, followed by one anodyne comment. (I was surprised to see anything at StormFront at all, given the fact that as Jew-haters they downplay the Islamic threat.). The rest of the links are to obscure blogs.
So that’s it. Two and a half days after the murder and beheading of a retired Englishman in front of his house, there has been only one mainstream news article about it, the original Mail story. None of the English columnists who make a specialty of warning about Islamic extremism and the rampant violence in today’s Britain have mentioned it. Melanie Phillips has had nothing on it.
Furthermore, the Mail, the only paper that did cover the murder, did not exactly cover itself with glory. Here’s the headline and lead sentence:
Neighbour held after pensioner decapitated and head dumped in wheelie bin ‘after row over noise’A man is beheaded, and it’s attributed to “a disagreement over noise”? What does that remind you of? Remember Ann Pressly who was raped and murdered in her home in Little Rock last month, her entire head bashed in, every bone in her face broken, her jawbone showing through her shattered face, which was the way her mother found her, and the authorities and papers for weeks reported it as “a random burglary”?
This is the evil system under which we in the West are now living, a system in which monstrous crimes are committed, and—especially when they are done by minorities against whites—they are “routinized,” their real nature concealed or thinned out, so that there is no reaction to them, the danger is not noticed. We are living under a belief system and a government-media complex that passively or actively intend our destruction.

The English used to flay the Vikings they caught and nail their hides to the doors of churches. Though the authenticity of this practice is now disputed, the spirit of retribution formerly manifested towards foreign malefactors is not. When 800 Danes landed in Devon in 878, most were killed in battle, and the rest were hanged. In 1002, King Aethelred ordered all the Danes in England killed in what is now known as the St. Brice’s Day massacre.Laura G. writes:
What a scene! As usual, you seem to be covering an issue that is just too horrific for the tender sensibilities of our delicate citizens to know about, to speak of, or to think about. And it is certainly too dreadfully un-p.c. to propose any action which might hinder the future beheadings of our citizens.Mark Jaws writes:
I don’t want to rain on anyone’s parade, but at this point we simply don’t know if this murderer was Muslim or not. So until we know for certain, I guess it is best not to speculate. I have found that we racialist right wingers have to be right ALL THE TIME if we are to have any chance of making inroads with our friends and neighbors. The minute we overreach and are proven wrong, our cause is set back—sometimes irrevocably. I prefer to make my racialist case using officially sanctioned government statistics on blacks and Hispanics. I will not venture into this jihadi beheading business unless definite trends emerge. Sorry, Mr. A. In this case it is best to look before leaping. This may have been a loonie having gone ballistic—and Lord knows, they come in all nationalities and creeds.LA replies:
You’re making a valid point—up to a point. You’re right that we don’t know that the killer is a Muslim. What we do know is that this extraordinary murder took place, and that except for one British newspaper no mainstream media outlet has reported it. Why? Why? For the same reason that the media conceal or down play every negative truth about Islam and what Muslim are doing. If they thought that the murder was just an unusually spectacular murder, wouldn’t they have covered it? But they didn’t, because they assumed that it probably is a Muslim murder. And even if it’s not, they don’t want to draw attention to the fact that a beheading took place in England because that reminds people of the fact that beheadings are associated with Islam, that Islam is now in Britain, and that Muslims are commanded by their god to behead non-Muslims. It’s still the protection of Islam from critical thought that is motivating the silence.Mark Jaws replies:
I find myself in the very unusual and awkward position of attempting to correct what I am perceiving as Austerian Overreach. Normally it is you curbing my excesses.LA replies:
Don’t worry about disagreeing with me. You may be right.Mark Jaws replies:
Since we don’t own the ideological terrain in which the media operates, we on the Right must always be right. We cannot afford to expose ourselves to charges of fear mongering and fanning the flames of fanaticism. I’ll stick with black and Mestizo dysfunctionally, high rates of illegitimacy, welfare usage, high school drop outs, and crime. Their impact on the average white is far greater—for the time being.December 19, 12:55 p.m.Eastern Standard Time
As indicated in Karen’s exchange with me today, the fact that after almost four days there is a total media blackout on a sensational crime that normally would have received intense coverage strongly suggests that the suspect is a Muslim. Why else would there be such silence? What are the authorities concealing? In the Greyhound beheading last summer, it took 37 hours before the cautious and ultra PC Canadian authorities provided the name of the suspect. It is now 93 hours since police, according to the one and only news story that’s been published on the murder, arrested a man at the scene after discovering Mr. McGee’s severed head at 9:20 p.m. December 15, and there have been zero further facts on the case.Mark Jaws replies:
This should be the job of the BNP - to stoke the flames of outrage and to raise the very questions that VFR is.Josefina writes from Argentina:
This beheading is indeed terrible. But I find it difficult to pity the British society as a whole.LA replies:
That would be all well and good, if we were discussing some phenomenon taking place In the distant past or on another planet. But we’re talking about the prospective Islamic takeover of modern Europe. Do you think that that won’t have horrible effects on the whole world, including your country?Josefina replies:
If Europe turns into Eurabia, the effects will be terrible for the whole Christian civilization: this includes not just Europe but the Americas also.
