Everyone’s favourite Simon Heffer was back this morning causing a ruckus by declaring “where Hitler failed by military means to conquer Europe, modern Germans are succeeding through trade and financial discipline. Welcome to the Fourth Reich.”
And if that wasn’t enough, I was alerted to a piece (via @jacobboyd) on the riots from the Republican darling Ann Coulter (“The sun never sets on the British welfare system“). Here are a few highlights but the whole article really is worth a read (perhaps with a whisky in hand).
Those of you following the barbaric rioting in Britain will not have failed to notice that a sizable proportion of the thugs are white, something not often seen in this country.
With a welfare system far more advanced than the United States, the British have achieved the remarkable result of turning entire communities of ancestral British people into tattooed, drunken brutes.
This is how civilizations die. It can happen overnight, as it did in Revolutionary France. If Britain of 1939 were composed of the current British population, the entirety of Europe would today be doing the “Heil Hitler” salute and singing the “Horst Wessel Song.”
So much threat of German takeover for one day!
I always find it amusing how much people get wound up with journalists who they disagree with. I enjoy Ann Coulter: I don’t agree with her all of the time, but she doesn’t censor herself and she’s perfectly provocative. The same goes for many writers at the Mail.
The left really do get their knickers in a twist when it comes to opposition. If the Ann Coulters, Simon Heffers and Peter Hitchens of the world weren’t here, the left would make them up.
