Strange Days Indeed
~ ITEM: Mark Steyn: Bystanders in their own fate
~ ITEM: 2,000 Brits take to streets to honor fallen Squaddie, media attacks marchers
~ ITEM: A soldier has been stabbed on the outskirts of Paris, although unlike Drummer Rigby in Woolwich, the French soldier was on duty
~ ITEM: MI6 Chief’s chilling warning to the people of Britain: “We cannot protect you against Muslim terror attacks”
~ ITEM: On Sheep, Wolves, and Sheepdogs – Dave Grossman
~ THE MORE I PONDER THIS, the more ashamed for British manhood and Western Civilization and bystanderism I get, and the angrier I get (in a constructive sense).
Just saying– anybody here actually willing to defend someone else in an assault situation like this? I am, and the second I saw what was going on, I’d be running them down with a car, beating them senseless with any blunt object at hand, and getting any folks with size or will at all to do likewise. The “men” in that Wellington Street beheading left it up to two women to do the manly thing, and defend someone in need.
No doubt the Bobbies would be along eventually to charge me with Islamaphobia, hate-crimes, bigotry, dangerous use of a blunt object, possible EDL membership, and many weapons charges– but I’d be a man for all that, and not a sheep, filming the end of civilization on my shiny thing and waiting for Somebody to Do Something. Guns? Knives? Barehand? Branch? Boots? Rocks? Pointy sticks?
Bystanderism ‘R’ Us
The irony, of course, that a cowardly observational don’t get involved life is a life barely worth living– and that’s the point which the jihadis are making to us, using us as the very object-lessons of our incoming civilizational doom. That’s why they wanted lots of witnesses and iPhone video.
What are you willing to live for? What are you willing to die for? If you have no clear answers other than comfort, pleasure, and more of the same, then you’re the rot.
