Bono, Bibles and the De-Britification of Britain

Sometimes, it is amazing the amount of work you can crank out when you’re flying on decongestants. Up/down/up/down/up. Now I know how poor Judy Garland felt. But at least she got to be glamorous at her job. Here, people wonder if you have an interview when you show up in something other than jeans.

Rockstars tend to make me a bit squeamish, at least when they are not singing. (And no, we won’t get into that closet Aerosmith thing I have, so don’t go there.) All that money, partnered with little to no brain activity, is a dangerous combination. Imagine my surprise when Bono, the frontman for U2, actually gave an intelligent interview to Rolling Stone. And they printed it (even though surely it rubbed against their liberal grain)!

I want to be very, very clear, however: I understand and agree with the analysis of the problem. There is an imminent threat. It manifested itself on 9/11. It’s real and grave. It is as serious a threat as Stalinism and National Socialism were. Let’s not pretend it isn’t.

He gets it – but this song won’t get any play in the MSM, you can bet on that. It doesn’t fit their script.

But the Chinese don’t get it. They have banned Bibles for “security reasons” from the 2008 Olympic Games. Of course, the MSM is mum on this news. I wonder if they will break their promise of allowing religious services for visitors and athletes next. But, hey, you can bring your Koran. No security problem there! As The Colossus says, “The mask slips,” and we get to see the real monsters.

Fifty years of unfettered immigration is taking its toll on the British psyche. I could write for days on the rampant appeasement being pushed down the average Brit’s throat by moronic multi-culties. The gradual dismantlement of the Empire is like watching your favorite grandmother fade away in a slow and wasteful death. But this, this is the last straw. That bastion of all holidays, that most English of English traditions is now in the sights of the Mullah-wannabees. The British government has been handed a recommendation to “downgrade” Christmas. The study also recommended that Christian symbolism be removed from the Monarchy, Houses of Parliament and other government systems to foster “belonging.” Multicultural PC Hooey Run Amok. It’s enough to make you gag on your roast goose! Even Santa is not safe. No Christmas Pudding or Sugar Plums for you, fatso!

Not only does Christmas signify the birth of our Lord, the beginning of the New Covenant and hope for all mankind – it holds a special little place in everyone’s heart. That place where everyone is still a child. Where the smells and sounds can take us back in an instant to a simpler, happy time. Where just for a moment, the world is filled with wonder once again. Those sweet, pure, unpretentious memories connect us all in a way that no brain-washed from birth bomb-strapped Islamic radical could ever comprehend.

And you know Allah will have no part of that.

Look at those shoes!

Work loads me down, along with a sinus infection from the Black Lagoon. But look at the shoes! Don’t they make me look taller? And thinner? And younger?


Your Inner European is Italian!


Passionate and colorful.
You show the world what culture really is.
Who’s Your Inner European?
