Skip to comments.England: The Next Middle Eastern Country to Fall?
Posted on 03/26/2011 3:14:34 PM PDT by Scottmkiv
The nation of England has been rocked by protests earlier today. The attendance at the 3/26 "March for the Alternative" protest wildly exceeded expectations, and estimates range from 400,000-500,000 attendees.
While the march was short on exactly what the problem was, and what the solution was, they were united behind one central tenet. No more cuts! We want handouts!
They offered no mathematical explanation about how the fiscally troubled nation is supposed to deliver on that demand.

Are you sure they aren’t Latino?
Now that’s a great title!!!
Now that the idiots sent their backup to secure the oil . expect lots of fun in jolly old England . If the Brits and the Cheese eaters think they walk away without the stink they are dumber than they look.
Devilish Marx knew that the revolution would break out in industrialized countries first. Somehow what he got wrong was that effete guilt ridden bourgeois admirers in the UK US German et al of Kropotkin Lenin mustafa kemal ad nauseum would ally themselves with hard core Marxists/nationalists/ to bring it to largely peasant societies first.
But a variation of his satanic ideology is playing itself out and has been for many years: Luxembourgism.
Brave New World redux.
They are marching because the gubmint ran out of other peoples money. The entrepreneuial spirit was crushed in Western Europe decades ago with the introduction of socialism.I saw a poll a few weeks ago that only 29% of Western Europeans polled thought that entrepreneuralism was an honorable activity while 51% of the US polled thought it was. The other 49% were Democrats
Although there are some conservative individualists over there, the masses are collectivist drones who will show up marching in the streets at the drop of a hat.With the exception of Germany, economic extinction for them is a generation or two down the road. And Obama, of course, wants to put the US on the same path
“Today the UK next us. “
The BIG difference between the UK and us, is we have guns.
Folks all I can say is, “turn out the lights. The party’s over”.
“they were united behind one central tenet. No more cuts! We want handouts! They offered no mathematical explanation about how the fiscally troubled nation is supposed to deliver on that demand...They just want more money. How? That isn’t their concern. Like a mafia protection racket, they suggest you make your “monthly donation” or you just might find that your house burns down. Accidentally. Mysteriously...They hurled smoke bombs and light bulbs filled with ammonia at the unarmed police trying to contain them.”
There is only one way to deal with such animals...
I do think it’s time for REGIME CHANGE in England.
If half a million people turn out to protest, the existing regime has NO LEGITIMACY and NO RIGHT to hold on to power.
While I would prefer a peaceful transition, we must assure that a transition takes place, regardless.
(Libya approach to England)
haha great headline but in reality the violent ones are an extreme minority, and dare I say euro anarchists that have latched on to every protest in the UK over the past few years to cause trouble.
We have seen worse before and will do in the future, but there is no threat to Britain I assure you...
This is like feeding wild animals, you take away their natural instincts. They seem helpless and hungry and we think we can help them, by feeding. At first you feel good about “helping” that bear. Then, the bear has cubs, so you feed them. Then other bears figure they can get a free meal too. Before you know it, you have too many bears to feed. When you try to stop they kill you and eat you.
It needs a fear of retribution to make the point that anarchy is anathema to a constitutional society! George Washington was sympathetic but unalterably opposed to the "Whisky Rebellion" when they adopted "Leveler" concepts against the new Constitution!
Liberals everywhere have the same dilemma.
And if the police were stupid enough to intervene against the citizens exerting crowd control, then I think things would get really ugly.
I think Portugal, Ireland, Greece, and Belgium* are the most likely candidates.
(*Belgium has a serious chance of dissolving into two parts.)
What I've never heard anyone point out to these brain-surgeons is that all of the wages that public sector workers spend are coming from the public purse i.e. from taxation, so in effect what they are proposing is that the country picks itself up by its own bootlaces.
Everyone is clear on what the problem is, but the unions and the public sector workers don't want the solution to involve any sacrifice on their part. They are putting all their trust in "growth", but again, what no one ever points out to them is that to fill the deficit would require astronomical growth rates that British manufacturing and service companies (you know, the people who actually make REAL money) are just not capable of doing any more.
- Karl Marx
The problem with having the right to bear arms is that EVERYONE has that right, including the people who want to see the country taken apart.
Right...even the Union claimed no more than 250,000 for the march, and the police quite candidly admitted it was well organised and trouble free. The problems were caused by a few dozen anarchists and anti-globalists, who - granted - are total scum who should be locked up and the keys thrown away.
I guess you’re not understanding what I meant.
Not the police. The protestors!
The difference between the UK and the US is we have the ability to fight back against the Communists and the Islamist movement because we are armed!
If a movement like theirs ever happens over here, they aren’t going to be satisfied with just protesting.
It will turn into a full blown riot because of the greater size of the population here. And they wont’ just stop at trashing DC. They will begin to trash everything.
The guns are to protect YOU from them. Not the police from them.
I know exactly what you are saying. My point is that yes, you may very well have guns to fight them, but by the same token, because of your constitution THEY have guns too! If anything like this kicked off in the US, it would turn into a full blown riot, but not because of the greater size of the population (I don't understand how that changes anything) but because the stakes are so much higher for everyone.
Conservative organisations have got more posters than these groups have members. They are elitist, lazy, professional troublemaking layabouts who are on the sweet, sweet ride of taking on "the man". They oppose everything. They hate with all the intensity of close-minded eight year olds. They have no new ideas, they have no practical solutions, they claim to speak for "the working class" but most of them wouldnt know what a workbench was if it hit them in the face. Personally, I'm glad this all kicked off in London - it shows them up for exactly what they are - a bunch of selfish, self-centred troublemakers with no give, no sense of compromise, who are taking out their anger on anyone who has the temerity not to agree with them.
And incidentally, half the people in that picture are journalists taking pictures of what is going on.
We have guns, but we also have a population that overwhelmingly views entitlement spending as moral. I can’t imagine even a tiny fraction of the country shooting people that wanted to collect social security checks.
I think we will spend ourselves into oblivion, and I don’t think the guns will alter the equation.
Now, after said spending into oblivion, the guns may change things.
I don’t think there is any imminent threat. I’m not worried these rioters are going to start dragging government officials out of their offices and hanging them from lamp posts.
The threat is longer term. What happens when the checks stop flowing? Or if they keep flowing, but inflation makes them just worthless pieces of paper?
The first thing the writer needs to understand is the difference between England and Great Britain.
This wasn’t about any cheques so to speak unless you mean in terms of pay cheques.....this was mainly public sector workers....and the cuts have been going on for a while now with thousands of jobs being lost.
But you are right, there are longer term considerations here, but I think we’re doing the right thing and hopefully we’ll be in a better position long term for it.
