~ PREPARE TO SING! FreeMarkSteyn.com contest winner Scaramouche sends along the following (crank it up, Ethel!) …. (motime.com)
“Show tunes: This one’s for Mark Steyn, on the occasion of his upcoming B.C. show trial:
There’s no tri-als like show tri-als
Like no tri-als I know.
Everything about them is depressing.
Everything’s like something out of Mao.
Soon enough they’ll have you there confessing
Your thoughts, they’re stressing,
They won’t allow!
There’s no po-lice like show po-lice
They strive to bring you low.
Even with a bureaucrat like Barb’ra Hall
Don’t need no trial for a “guilty” call.
You’ve exchanged your freedom for no “rights” at all.
Let’s close down the whole show.
Let’s close down the whole show!

Jihad & Shari’a & Other Bits of 7th Century Wisdom
“In a very few years, perhaps in a very few months, we shall be confronted with demands with which we shall no doubt be invited to comply. Those demands may affect the surrender of territory or the surrender of liberty. I foresee and foretell that the policy of submission will carry with it restrictions upon the freedom of speech and debate in Parliament, on public platforms, and discussions in the press, for it will be said–indeed, I hear it said sometimes now – that we cannot allow the Nazi system of dictatorship to be criticized by ordinary, common English politicians. Then, with a press under control, in part direct but more potently indirect, with every organ of public opinion doped and chloroformed into acquiescence, we shall be conducted along further stages of our journey.”
