The anniversary we should be remembering?

(Wednesday blog)

Yesterday was 22 May. Yup yesterday we were all told to remember an important anniversary. Which anniversary? Well, the one-year anniversary of the Manchester bombing, of course. And our TV screens were full of stories of victims and survivors and suchlike and church services and sad-looking politicians and royals and whatnot. Though, in all the TV reports I saw, nobody mentioned the religion of the murderer and nobody mentioned his motives. I wonder why not?

Of course we should remember the Manchester dead. But what I found most nauseating were all the “we’ll never give in to hate” posturing of the various speakers. Why nauseating? Because the suggestion is always that our society is ridden with supposed ‘hate’. But it isn’t. The Buddhists aren’t full of hate. Hindus aren’t full of hate. Catholics aren’t full of hate. Sikhs aren’t full of hate. Chinese Confucians aren’t full of hate. In fact, most people in these groups work hard, look after their families, ensure their children are educated and try to fit in with British society. There’s only one group that is full of hate – but nobody dares name this group because that would be a ‘hate crime’.

However, there was another anniversary yesterday. Given the silence of our politicians and media, you might have forgotten it. Perhaps it slipped their minds too? Or perhaps they don’t want us to remember it?

Yesterday, 22 May 2018, was the fifth anniversary of the brutal murder of Fusilier Lee Rigby on a London street. Oh, did nobody mention that? Didn’t the BBC and C4 pay tribute to Lee Rigby who was slaughtered and almost beheaded by two members of the Religion of Peace? Nope. As far as I know, there was no mention in the mainstream media of Lee Rigby.

You forgot about that, didn’t you? I imagine that, five years ago, when Lee Rigby was hacked to death, our politicians claimed “our thoughts and prayers…blah blah blah” and “he will always be remembered…. blah blah blah”. Yet, yesterday, on the fifth anniversary of his death, Lee Rigby, who would “always be remembered“, was rather conveniently forgotten.

The attitude of our rulers to Lee Rigby rather reminds me of Rudyard Kipling’s poem – Tommy Atkins. People like Lee Rigby are useful to the elites when there’s fighting to be done, but are seen by the elites as an embarrassment at all other times.

Shame on our Izlumophiliac leaders and the craven Izlumophiliac media for trying to erase Lee Rigby from history by deliberately ignoring the fifth anniversary of his slaughter.

    It’s proven that the larger the number of people gathered together at a specific event, the lower is the collective average IQ level and the less likely, therefore, is it that any of the participants – who by their mere attendance are already demonstrating their willingness to be carried along by the prevailing mood – will challenge that mood. This psychological phenomenon contributed significantly to the rise of Nazism in 1930s Germany. So the powers that be, preaching tolerance, forgiveness, turning the other cheek, rather favour these mass demonstrations of “togetherness”. They act as a mass sedative.
    As for our brave military, the way we as a country treat our soldiers is deplorable. We send them to appalling places, to participate in atrocious episodes where they see their comrades blown up or hacked to pieces, then if they “snap” and retaliate with a bit of vengeful killing in return, they are prosecuted and punished. At least Prince Harry, with his Invictus initiative, is trying to raise the profile of the permanently disabled veterans who, typically, being of no further use, are discharged and left to get on with their damaged lives as best they can. Not a lot better than the post Waterloo and post WW1 double-leg amputees sitting on home-made trolleys in shop doorways, begging for a crust!

    You’re perfectly right, it is the ROP that exhibits ‘hate’ towards us and our way of life. I can’t remember feeling hate, dislike maybe, so wonder where this slur originated and who is manipulating laws to fit,

  • Pam Nash

    Aren’t you going to write on here about your outrage at Prince Harry marrying a lady with African American roots – or do you save that for the Times comment sections?

    The government encourages these public displays of grief and the masses are encourage to participate and have been brainwashed into believing that acting together in this way and taking about love not hate can achieve something. What it does is let the government off the hook because the masses never ask the question – why doesn’t the government prevent these atrocities.

    Pam Nash – that is a really stupid comment. My father was an immigrant, both my wives have been foreign and I have two adopted children from India. And you’re suggesting I’m a racist. Please crawl back under whichever stone you emerged from. Goodbye.

    Well said David! People who can’t see beyond the colour – precise shade? – of someone’s skin are idiots. It is CULTURE that is significant and whether or not, having come to live in the UK, immigrants choose to adopt our essentially tolerant, Anglo-Saxon culture and adapt to and integrate with our way of life. There is one immigrant sector who have, most notably, declined to integrate and therein lie our current difficulties as a nation. A major problem now is that an accusation of “racism” is frequently hurled indiscriminately at people who should, more accurately, be described as “culturalist”. The former is inexcusable – no individual is personally responsible for the colour of his/her skin – the latter is and should be susceptible to change on the part of those who seek to be fully accepted into British life.

    Rather refreshing interview on R4 PM prog. earlier in which journalist, broadcaster and ex Tory MP Matthew Parris condemned the self-indulgent mass demonstrations of pseudo grief such as that in Manchester yesterday, where only a tiny fraction of the participants have any personal connection to the subject.

    Pam Nash. I imagine you to be a stupid woman.
