When Pamela Geller and I were barred from entering Britain last year, many people who realized how ridiculous that ban was pointed out that Winston Churchill, because of the quote below, would not be welcome in Britain today — an idea which was met with the usual Leftist/Islamic supremacist response of derision and ridicule. But here is proof that those who made this observation were absolutely right.

If there is any genuine resistance in Britain today against jihad terror and Islamic supremacism, it will now champion Paul Weston’s cause. We’ll see. I suspect that more likely the leading “counter-jihadists” in Dhimmi Britannia will pick at Weston’s past statements, saying he wasn’t right just here or just there, and throw him to the wolves.

Why do I have a feeling that there is more to the story....

"Die-hard conservatives thought that if I couldn't get everything I asked for, I should jump off the cliff with the flag flying-go down in flames. No, if I can get 70 or 80 percent of what it is I'm trying to get ... I'll take that and then continue to try to get the rest in the future."

The US Constitution is a result of compromise and ideals... and I think it's pretty darn great.

I've said this before, and I'll repeat it.

Not long after the World Trade Center attacks, I believe that the English might be the last holdouts against insurgent islam in Western Europe. But after watching the events of the past dozen years, I wouldn't be surprised if Britain were one of the first nations to fall before the islamic putsch.

Scotland better vote itself out of the UK, and hurry up about it!

Here's the underlying story:

    Today Paul Weston, chairman of the party Liberty GB and candidate in the 22 May European Elections in the South East, has been arrested in Winchester.

    At around 2pm Mr Weston was standing on the steps of Winchester Guildhall, addressing the passers-by in the street with a megaphone.  He quoted the following excerpt about Islam from the book The River War by Winston Churchill:

        “How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries!  Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy.  The effects are apparent in many countries.  Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.  A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity.  The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property – either as a child, a wife, or a concubine – must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.  Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the faith:  all know how to die but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it.  No stronger retrograde force exists in the world.  Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith.”

    Reportedly a woman came out of the Guildhall and asked Mr Weston if he had the authorisation to make this speech.  When he answered that he didn’t, she told him “It’s disgusting!” and then called the police.

    Six or seven officers arrived.  They talked with the people standing nearby, asking questions about what had happened.  The police had a long discussion with Mr Weston, lasting about 40 minutes.

    At about 3pm he was arrested.  They searched him, put him in a police van and took him away.

The only disgusting thing here is that one can be arrested for merely speaking words that some find offensive.  Thank the Lord above for the First Amendment, because freedom of speech - to be followed along by freedom of thought - seems to be fading away in England.  What a shame.

Doesn't bother me in the slightest.

67 million people crammed into a space about the size of New Jersey - we get a bit testy about noise.

Besides - he's done it as a deliberate ploy. If I meet him - he'd best be bleeping grateful for socialized medicine. He's effectively called 7 of my grand children sub human as they are mixed race. That irritates me.

Anyone who tells you you can't buy happiness has never been in a book store or an animal shelter.

You are the result of 3 billion years of evolutionary success. Act like it.
