"THE BEGINNING OF THE END FOR BRITAIN"
YOUTUBE ^ | April 19, 2012 | UNK

Posted on 04/19/2012 2:11:15 PM PDT by SWAMPSNIPER

Watch this, and weep for Britain.

I really believe that similar events around the world are part of a bigger plan, and that it is intended to peak in one great global surge.

All the stories have been told Of kings and days of old, But there's no England now. All the wars that were won and lost Somehow don't seem to matter very much anymore. All the lies we were told, All the lies of the people running round, They're castles have burned. Now I see change, But inside we're the same as we ever were. Living on a thin line, Tell me now, what are we supposed to do? Living on a thin line, Tell me now, what are we supposed to do? Living on a thin line, Living this way, each day is a dream. What am I, what are we supposed to do? Living on a thin line, Tell me now, what are we supposed to do? Now another century nearly gone, What are we gonna leave for the young? What we couldn't do, what we wouldn't do, It's a crime, but does it matter? Does it matter much, does it matter much to you? Does it ever really matter? Yes, it really, really matters. Living on a thin line, Tell me now, what are we supposed to do? Living on a thin line, Tell me now, what are we supposed to do? Now another leader says Break their hearts and break some heads. Is there nothing we can say or do? Blame the future on the past, Always lost in blood and guts. And when they're gone, it's me and you. Living on a thin line, Tell me now, what are we supposed to do? Living on a thin line, Tell me now, what are we supposed to do? Living on a thin line.

The people shown in this video are nothing but KKK/Nazi chimeras wrapped in black robes who raise their asses to god five times a day while praying to the moon demon below. Islam is a cult of death…it’s time for the British to give them what they wish for.

Scary video.

I saw two mulsim street marches years ago. One was in London in about 1973. Mixed in with the muslims on that occasion were marchers carrying communist signs.

In the second muslim street march I saw, the marchers seemed to be very angry. This was on May Day in Paris in the late 1990s. Because of spontaneous train strikes outside of Paris, my wife and I had barely made it into the city the day before our flight home. The loud street parade showed up with anti-American signs while we were walking down a street. I figured we were possibly recognizable as Americans, so we ducked into a restaurant until the parade passed.

Don’t bother fighting a real war, because that might slow the flow of freight fuel and step on globalist toes. Continue finding ways to monitor and control the foreign and domestic terrorist classes instead...you know, all of those jealous, poorly dressed people beneath us, who are overpopulating, causing global warming, etc.

Filmed in Luton, not far from where I live, Hitchin a smallish quite ‘British’ town.

There are parts of Luton, honest to god, rows of shops, restaurants etc.....you would literally think you are in a different country.

It is shocking.

Believe it or not, it is largely the younger generation.....the older muslim generations had respect for what Britain is.....the youth are poison, plastic Muslims.....

“who raise their asses to god five times a day while praying to the moon demon below.”

I thought that their god was a moon god. If so, “mooning” it 5 times a day seems appropriate... while they yell, “allywho backdoor”.

I will never understand why you let them disarm you.

Early in WW2, when Britain needed home defense weapons, my grandfather, born in Nutsford but migrated here at 18 or 19, packed up his personal rifle to be sent to Britain.

All those guns were destroyed after the war, it is insane.

I've got relatives in Nutsford but I know nothing about them. The name would be Pepper.

That’s because Muslims were much more secular back in the previous generation. The younger Muzzies of today are getting back to old school Islam like it was before the secularization.

There is unlimited wealth, land, oil, and resources for them in the Middle East.

Allow them to leave peacefully and humanely, and resettle in Islamic lands.

End Islam in Europe and the West.

You’ll notice on most any muezzin or mosque a crescent moon at about 19% totality (3 days old from the new Moon; 19% is Islam’s most favorite number).

Allah is the Moon and is known also by the names Hubal, Isis, Ishtar, Semiramis.

I never thought about the five-time-a-dayers doing their nose-to-azz prayer as mooning their own moon god! I thought they were just mooning the guy behind them.

1—As a gun owner, I agree the various acts that outlawed some guns in the UK were wrong. Although I supported the 1988 act banning assault weapons. No real gun owner here owned one, and those that did were Rambo wannabes.

2—The British public it has to be said have never been gun owners. So the idea we were disarmed en masse is a misnomer. The biggest number of guns in the UK was 1.6m in 1996 out of 60m people. As bad as the laws were, THATS why the laws passed with little public argument.

3—It is a myth, or at least part-myth, that ww2 US weapons were destroyed. Info IS sketchy, but the evidence does suggest that most of the weapons, if not the vast majority, were simply melted down in 1940-41 for use in making munitions, tanks, planes etc.

“There are nearly two million and rising, licensed guns in the UK”

Licensed guns are registered guns, and as such are subject to confiscation, whenever Her Majesty’s Government deem it appropriate.

It has already been done with the handguns, and it has already been done with the semiautomatic rifles & shotguns. Baroness Thatcher was no help in this regard.

Britons are largely disarmed. Self defence in UK is a guilty till proven innocent crime in UK.

The most powerful man in Britain is Mr. Anjem Choudary.

I write this from the safety of the opposite shore of the Atlantic even as I count my blessings and my freedom to possess firearms and to use them in defence of self & home.

1—Shotguns are legal.

2-No self defence is not a guilty till innocent crime here, this is a myth that British freepers have had to explain and shoot down so many times I have lost count. BTW I myself am a 2008 victim of burglary and assault, which involved me using self-defence, so I have first hand knowledge.

3—Utter drivel. Mr Choudray is a nutter who makes headlines, but the idea he has any power over the British Muslim population outside his tiny following, let alone the 62 million British nation is complete nonsense.

You really have no clue about Britain, sorry. You are parroting myths you have read and heard from your side of the pond.

Many Americans seem to simply confuse the UK being at times too PC with Muslims somehow running Britain.

95% of the UK is non-Muslim. 92-93% is white. Muslims have no major power in politics, business and in any major field in the UK. The idea that they run Britain is complete drivel. Shouted by people who have not been here. Honestly, if anyone here actually spent any time here, theyd quickly see that the Muslims dont run the UK, and never will.

5% of the population, a 5% who are immigrant stock, run Britain?. Utter drivel. Our PM is an upper class Etonian of Anglo-Scots-Welsh-Jewish ancestry, with links to the aristocracy.

Okay Scotsman but some of my extended family who are Brits recently visited Birmingham (they live in Newcastle) and they said much of Birmingham was like being in the Middle East. I don’t think you can shrug off the numbers, the arrogance, and the culture that is gaining more and more traction in Western countries.

Sorry, mate, but that’s the word of one of your own lads. As Brits, you simply have different notions of individual rights and personal defence as opposed to us ignorant Yanks. So you’re proud of that fact? Fine & sorry. Hyacinth Bucket has long since replaced Lady Britannia. Enjoy your life of the Government regulating the points on kitchen knives and mandating halal meats in all the butcher shops.

My “ignorance” will cost me but little in the general scheme of life here in the “colonies”, as yes, I rather do enjoy life on this side of the pond. Not nearly as many surveillance cameras here. “1984” was a British novel, as I recall.

BTW, just how did you exercise personal defence? Not too specific, near as I could tell. Did the Muslim sue?

I take it my points on not believing myths passed you by?.

The Govt doesnt regulate kitchen knives!. I think you are confusing them with a group of doctors (who deal with serious knife wounds, remember we kill and maim with knives here as opposed to guns) who argued a couple of years ago for knife licensing and restrictions. They were ignored, but people here seem to think there are restrictions now. The only laws on knives are on the ability of under 16’s to buy them. As has always been the case.

And your hahal point is utter nonsense. British butcher shops do not ‘have to sell’ halal meat. Utter nonsense.

Really, stop believing and repeating myths. Please.

As to self-defence, again, its a myth that Brits arent allowed to defend themselves. People here have focused on a tiny amount of cases where people went beyond the reasonable limits of self-defence (in the courts eyes), like the Muslim man who chased a burglar for a mile, had him held down, and ran over him in his car. Or because it is standard British police practice to ‘arrest’ everyone at the scene of a death during a ‘home invasion’, people here who are American think that means the homeowner isnt allowed to defend themselves. What actually happens is that if a burglar is killed, everyone gets carted off to the police station. WHAT gets ignored here is that in the rare cases where a burglar is killed, the houseowners are usually released within hours as soon as the facts of the case are established.

We British are allowed to defend ourselves. In fact, the laws have been strengthened IN FAVOUR of the homeowner since 2007, and we now have even more leeway in what constitutes self defence. British laws basically allow you carte blanche as long as it was within home boundaries and you had no alternative but to kill him.

As to my own incident, the burglar was a junkie. A WHITE junkie. Your Muslim obsession is bizarre. My junkie burglar probably wouldnt know what a Muslim is. Scum of the lowest order. He got ‘done’ for nine burglaries or attempted burglaries, inc mine, and assault on me and attempted assault on my brother and father. He got 44 months (3yrs 8m) all in.

He is currently on remand for attempted murder, as he was just five weeks out of prison, and he and two mates tried to murder an ‘enemy’ with knives, stabbing the man in the neck. Clearly three and a half years in prison didnt make the idiot think.

Birmingham is an area which has had high immigration since ww2. It was black Caribbean in the 50’s and 60’s, Asian immigration from the 60’s onwards. Not purely Muslim, but plenty of Hindus and Sikhs.

But that dosent mean the UK is like that everywhere. Anymore than the whole of the US is like NY or Miami.
95% of the UK is not Muslim. Actually nearer to 96%. 93% is white.

Live in London but my job takes me all over Europe (if there’s one thing I could change about the UK, it would be Heathrow, lol).

I love my life here, you Brits should be proud of the civil society you have. People are so polite and friendly. My experience of the NHS has been first rate (heresy!!).

Yes, you do have a layer of scum like every other country I’ve been to and the level of indulgence they are treated with by the ‘authorities’ is depressing. I’d prefer to see a much harsher penal environment but I tend to keep my opinions to myself and close friends and family. I am a guest here, after all.

Anyway, when anything get’s me down, I find a long walk through the Yorkshire Dales or the Lakes followed by a good pint is enough to restore my faith.

Islam declared war on us on 9-11-2001. I clearly remembered the muted response and celebration of the muzzie population afterwards.

I think our country needs to bury a pig in every 1/4 acre of buildable land here so that we can prevent any more proliferation of mosques. Deportation of 1st generation immigrant islamic people should also begin immedatiately.

An interesting discussion. Glad to know you were not harmed by the knifewielding junkie, but it is obvious that in UK the home invaders can safely assume that the resident will have no means of deadly force with which to defend him/herself.

And carting off the whole family of an invaded home where the criminal wound up dead is not presumption of innocence in my view.

Most home robberies here happen to unoccupied homes. Too much chance of a home invader winding up dead otherwise.

Just a reminder, the first shots of the American Revolution were fired in 1775 when British troops sought to confiscate all civilian firearms for the Crown.

Can we at least agree that Britain has a considerable image problem when it comes to crime and/or Muslims? By the way, the Muslim who used his car as a weapon against a burglar has my support, but over here lots of Muslim and Hindu shopkeepers have used firearms to defend themselves to good effect.

And if Mr. Choudary is so marginalized, where are his outspoken Muslim critics? Also, when are the British press going to stop their PC-ridden references to Pakistani yobbos as “Asians”?

Thanks for the enlightening demographic picture.

However, as you are well aware the trend is precipitously toward an increased Muslim presence. Much of that could be solved by simply having more white Christian babies. The problem is even more pronounced and further along the downward spiral in continental Europe. Yes, we have our own undesirable ethnic trends in the US.

Numbers aside, I believe the problem is more one of non-judgmental cultural (and moral) equivalence. Even with a population that is 92% white, if they do not CLEARLY recognize AND defend the clear across-the-board superiority of white Christian western civilization, then that same enormous demographic advantage is for naught.

1—Actually, I was. Hand cut open with screwdriver he had nicked from my study, but only four stitches and not bad enough that I couldnt grab him.

2—Burglars, yes, here they know 99% of the time the house wont be armed. Again, we can use deadly force if necessary, just not as often as America where one shot is all you need. Killed burglars here tend to be stabbed or clubbed with a knife or baseball bat, tablelamp.

3—It tends to be the owner (male usually if its a family) only that is taken in for questioning if the evidence is showing they used the lethal force. As explained in previous threads, its more a police procedure rather than badly treating a homeowner.

4-Most robberies here are done when people are out.

5—Britain has a problem with extreme Muslims and has been far too slow to react to honour killings or muslim sexual abuse/domestic violence. But headlines aside, the vast majority of UK Muslims are just normal, decent people. Remember the emptiest vessels make the loudest noise....

6-There are plenty of critics, Muslim and non-Muslim, of Choudray. Unfortunately, American media tends to pick up his ravings and tends to ignore any counterattacks from moderate Muslim organisations. So you see a nutcase who seems to say what he wants with no repost.

7-I agree. Although it tends to be the more leftleaning papers/media who do that.

Britain legally allows shotguns, rifles. But not assault rifles. They were banned in 1988 after Michael Ryan went nuts with several AR’s in Hungerford in 1987.

Most UK gun owners (my family inc) never owned one and those that did were Rambo wannabes. UK gun owners were more concerned with laws regarding handguns. Even from UK gun owners (maybe wrongly in hindsight) there wasnt a great deal of opposition to the 1988 ban, many thought the Rambo wannabes were giving responsible owners a bad name.

I am not sure what the laws are regarding an American owning guns/importing their own guns into the UK. You’d certainly need a licence and safe stockage of the weapons. Its the importation of own guns I am not sure of.
