Mark Steyn > Utah

Mark Steyn says what I tried to say here, he just does it much, much better – that’s why he gets paid and I don’t:

On Wednesday, Drummer Lee Rigby of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, a man who had served Queen and country honorably in the hell of Helmand Province in Afghanistan, emerged from his barracks on Wellington Street, named after the Duke thereof, in southeast London. Minutes later, he was hacked to death in broad daylight and in full view of onlookers by two men with machetes who crowed “Allahu akbar!” as they dumped his carcass in the middle of the street like so much road kill.

As grotesque as this act of savagery was, the aftermath was even more unsettling. The perpetrators did not, as the Tsarnaev brothers did in Boston, attempt to escape. Instead, they held court in the street gloating over their trophy, and flagged down a London bus to demand the passengers record their triumph on film. As the crowd of bystanders swelled, the remarkably urbane savages posed for photographs with the remains of their victim while discoursing on the iniquities of Britain toward the Muslim world. Having killed Drummer Rigby, they were killing time: It took 20 minutes for the somnolent British constabulary to show up. And so television viewers were treated to the spectacle of a young man, speaking in the vowels of south London, chatting calmly with his “fellow Britons” about his geopolitical grievances and apologizing to the ladies present for any discomfort his beheading of Drummer Rigby might have caused them, all while drenched in blood and still wielding his cleaver.

That’s easy for him to say. Woolwich is an unfashionable part of town, and Sir Simon is unlikely to find himself there of an afternoon stroll. Drummer Rigby had less choice in the matter. Being jumped by barbarians with machetes is certainly “mundane” in Somalia and Sudan, but it’s the sort of thing that would once have been considered somewhat unusual on a sunny afternoon in south London — at least as unusual as, say, blowing up eight-year-old boys at the Boston Marathon. It was “mundane” only in the sense that, as at weddings and kindergarten concerts, the reflexive reaction of everybody present was to get out their cell phones and start filming.

Once, long ago, I was in an altercation where someone pulled a switchblade, and ever since have been mindful of Jimmy Hoffa’s observation that he’d rather jump a gun than a knife. Nevertheless, there is a disturbing passivity to this scene: a street full of able-bodied citizens being lectured to by blood-soaked murderers who have no fear that anyone will be minded to interrupt their diatribes. In fairness to the people of Boston, they were ordered to “shelter in place” by the governor of Massachusetts. In Woolwich, a large crowd of Londoners apparently volunteered to “shelter in place,” instinctively. Consider how that will play when these guys’ jihadist snuff video is being hawked around the bazaars of the Muslim world. Behold the infidels, content to be bystanders in their own fate.

There is more.

    • Another soldier….this time in France was just attacked and stabbed in the throat.
      There are Riots in Sweden by the muslims
      A plane from Pakistan was set on fire by “Two Persons” and forced to land.

      In response the French Gov’t says it wants to try and Outlaw the French Nationalists ( French Spring…Printemps Francois)…..and the British Gov’t is harassing protestors from the EDL ( English Defence League)……..this is Similar to what is happening Re: the Fort Hood muslim terrorist in the US….Hasan…..see my post below.

      The Governments of the US, France and the UK are using their might to try and Silence the Protest and Opposition to muslim violence……These nationalist movements should themselves be uniting Together across borders …….Because it appears our Governments are working to protect anybody BUT their citizens.

  1. Sheep?

    The video of lemmings jumping off the cliff into an ocean where they will die is more apropo.

    No Wait! this analogy is more apropo:

    Baby seals on the beaches as 19th century whalers club them to death so as not damage the pelts.

  2. Yes, his article rocks, but he doesn’t hold a candle to you in a tux.

    I truly wonder what I would’ve done had I been on this bus. It is a curious question because the British are a bunch of nancy boys so you know no one is packing heat. I haven’t taken any martial arts, so I wonder how well I would’ve fared against a machete. My initial thought is kicking their balls. Hopefully, the retarded British govt. will take my thoughts a step further by removing the perps’.

  3. “Hopefully, the retarded British govt. will take my thoughts a step further by removing the perps’.”

    The retarded British govt. is just as inept, if not worse, than ours. Three and a half years ago in Fort Hood, a worthless POS killed 13 people and wounded 32 others because his “religion” told him to do so and our stupid govt hasn’t even tried him yet.

    • Indeed.

      He has Gotten Paid $278,000, Gotten a Promotion to Colonel and a Medal….all while waiting in jail and thumbing his nose by not shaving his Beard as is US Military protocol.

      Instead…..the US Military Removed a Judge, Refuses to pay the families of the victims for Combat pay, Calls this “workplace Violence” and has an OFFICIAL policy of comdeming Christians and Christianity……resulting in Court Martial and Prison if you are a Christian and talk about your religion.

      Muslim…..Kill in the name of your religion…………..Get A quarter of a Million $$, Promotion and a Medal.
      Christian……get NO help from US Military for being Killed / maimed by a muslim……threat of imprisonment and Court-martial.

      Think the US Military as it NOW exists is to protect the American Citizen and the Constitution ???

      When the F-CK are people going to Wake-up and Rise-up ???

  4. Hellfire missiles, 500 lb (or larger if needed) Laser guided bombs or .50 cal from afar all handle the de-nutting process quite well. Hard to employ in your own country but will likely become necessary if they allow immigration of the “peaceful Moslems” to continue.

    • The video recording of the MUSLIM’S rant and why he murdered the soldier, for Allah, is another gift to the western world for all those who don’t have their heads up their arses…

      I’m really at a loss how modern progressives, dismiss the explanation of a murderer…

      Are progressives brain damaged? psychopaths? Mentally ill?

      Would progressives still deny reality after being mortally wounded, watching their own blood dripping off the cooking knife onto their own face?

      • The mohameddans are a toool for the Progressives…… well as being Kindred, Because islam is a totalitarian Cult just like Progressivism / communism.

        A progressive attacked and /or killed by a muslim would be Blamed on Conservatives….and those who have Patriot or Constitution or Tea Party in their Organizations name.

        OR….they will just ignore it……Just like they did to Lara Logan , one of their own who was Gang-raped by the muslim Brotherhood on the street in front of everyone.

  5. The end justifies the means. Progressives have no problem eating their own if it furthers their plans. If a few peaceful Muslims kill a few progressive useful idiots you have to remember they are all expendable. Even BHO is expendable and when no further needed will be cast to the dogs. Just have to remember who their boss is.

  6. Why don’t the f*^kin’ muslims try that in Jackson County? Because one of the many, many, many so-called “redneck” citizens in this small part of the world would have brought out a weapon and killed them.

    • That is exactly why they don’t ply their trade of murder in Texas. Plenty of family first, God fearing, firearm carrying, patriots about.

        • I DID!! 😆

          Oak: Sky, tell the story about how I got my name.

          Sky: Well, I was in McKenzie Park and I gave a big push, and you just came right out. And when you did, an oak leaf drifted down upon your head. Ahhh. That’s why I named you Oak.

          Rainy: Horseshit! Oak you were born at Jackson Memorial after three hours of your mom begging for drug, shots, or someone to knock her over the head with a hammer!
