Out Comes Liberty GB

Liberty GB,  Paul Weston

Liberty GB is a new party in Great Britain. Granted I am new to their message, but at first glance, they have a lot to be admired. Especially this blogpost by Paul Weston:

Those who know anything about Islamic expansionism will be aware that the Saudi Arabian based Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) holds the largest block vote within the UN, and that they are working hard (and spending a lot of money) trying to stop any criticism of Islam in the West.

The OIC, in accordance with sharia law, deems all criticism of Islam to be invalid. It does not matter if it is true or untrue; the mere fact that it is critical is simply not allowed. Period. The buzzword they have come up with to negate our defence against their extremist ideology is ‘Islamophobia’ which of course means an irrational fear of Islam.

This is very clever. By utilising the word Islamophobia they manage to pigeonhole any critics of Islam as being of questionable mental equilibrium – which may not be true initially, but may well be the case after a few years, simply because trying to make sense of this madness must surely drive us slowly insane.

For example, I have a perfectly rational fear of communism, which brought death and social/ moral/ environmental catastrophe wherever it laid its bloodied boot. During the Cold War it was fortunate for the West that our ruling elites (mostly …) did not lay down before Moscow and that they did not accuse critics of the Soviet Union of suffering from Commyophobia

This was not emulated in socialist countries though. Critics of communism really were deemed to be mentally ill and many show trials forced them to admit their insanity before they were consigned to the death camps. Deeming criticism of the power-elite to be irrational/ insane is a tried and tested method of maintaining power and is seen only in absolute dictatorships, the vast majority of which have been of left-wing bent, outside of Islam.

Hand Salute: Kris, thanks for the link!

You Still Got a Thing for Nancy Pelosi?

Nancy PelosiOur Navy, while in the hundreds of thousands of Sailors, is really quite small. Part of my job is talking to ships, sort of a cross between customer service help-desk and Sherlock Holmesian interrogation. I am wary, trying to determine by conversing with the Division Officer if they actually need assistance or whether they are not using the equipment properly.

I called up a ship yesterday and was chatting away with the DivO. His name sounded almost familiar, but not quite. So, I grilled him carefully, politely. He was the same way with me.

And in talking to him, I asked him his prior job. He replied with the exact billet where I was last! We both were fliers out of the Middle East.

Hmmm, was this possible? Wait, I trained him! Except his email has a different first name. That’s right, he uses his middle name.

We laughed and chatted about our current jobs. And then I asked the question: you still got a thing for Nancy Pelosi?

He cracked up. I was the OIC of the flying detachment and I told the very trusting (country boy) Detachment Chief that the new Ensign had a little thing for Nancy Pelosi. And the Chief believed me. Mostly because the new Ensign was a prior Chief. And our Det Chief looked at anyone who would turn his back on the Goat Locker as crazy.

Nancy PelosiOne other thing, the new Ensign did not deny it immediately. He played along, like it was a big joke. (Which it was to me, but not the Det Chief!) He would laugh and act like he maybe had a little twinkle for the Speaker of the House.

Weeks went by and I would hear Chief ask the Ensign: You sure you don’t got a lil’ thang for Nancy Pelosi?

Moral of the story: Deny deny deny. . .
