|The Cross of St. George. St. George is the patron saint of England.*|
The Town council of Radstock in Somerset has banned the English flag, the Cross of St. George, because, in the words of really stupid councilor and university lecturer, Eleanor Jackson, it could cause upset because it was used during the Crusades 1,000 years ago:
“My big problem is that it is offensive to some Muslims ... "My thoughts are we ought to drop it for 20 years."The red cross was worn by English soldiers as an identification from the reign of Edward I. From 1348 and throughout the 15th century, the St. George's Cross was shown in the hoist of the Royal Standards of the Plantagenet kings of England. After the dynastic union of England and Scotland in 1603, a British flag was created by combining St George's Cross with St Andrew's Cross, the flag of Scotland.
But history be damned. The really stupid town council of Radstock in Somerset has decided that the flag should be hidden from view for at least 20 years to prevent "upset" to some Muslim immigrants.
A more intelligent decision would have been to advise Muslim immigrants to Somerset who might be offended by the symbols of the English nation to return to the Muslim countries whence they came.
The most intelligent solution would have been for other Council members to inform university lecturer Eleanor Jackson just exactly how stupid she is and then turn to some real business, assuming there is any real business in a place that can get into the news only by an exhibition of self-hating stupidity.
Oddly, or rather we should say typically of the politically correct, Radstock Council did not discuss any offense that might be caused to adherents of either the Bible, you know, the holy book of the England's state church, or the Koran, by its decision to fly the rainbow flag of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender pride movement, at “appropriate” times of the year.
But according to a Daily Telegraph report, some intelligence on the issue of the flag of St. George was expressed by local Muslims who said that the objection raised to the flag was “oversensitive.”
Meantime, the Muslim Council of Britain said England's patron saint should not be associated with “any hatred of Muslims”. Spokeswoman Nasima Begum said: "St George needs to take his rightful place as a national symbol of inclusivity rather than a symbol of hatred.”
So note, that:
whereas the Muslims have several spokespersons to represent their interest;
and whereas the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender pride movement no doubt have multiple representatives to speak for them should their flag be demeaned;
the English have no one to speak for them other that a politically correct, self-hating twit from the university, the state's prime instrument for the corruption of youth.
That's what happens in a country run by weasels such as Blair and Brown, Clogg and Cameron, and next up, the son of an illegal immigrant Jew, Miliband, whose claims to believe that the essence of English nationalism consists in the desire to welcome many more foreign residents to be granted full citizenship including the right to demand changes in whatever they find uncongenial about England's cultural traditions and legal institutions.
When it is advantageous to the organism, individual cells of a multicellular organism may self destruct in a process known as apoptosis. The global empire relies on an analogous mechanism to destroy the power of the nation states, that might disrupt the smooth operation of the empire. It is a process of autogenocide driven by self-hatred, instigated by a treasonous elite.
The English, clearly, are well on their way to oblivion. Meantime, the Muslims wait patiently for the time when they can unfurl the crescent moon flag over England's green and pleasant land.
