England: the EDL: Freedom [by Reg74]
It is often said that England is the birthplace of modern democracy, that the civilised world has followed us, adopted our methods when establishing their own systems of law and looked to our temerity for inspiration in the face of tyranny.
There are names, some remembered and worn on stones in our churchyards, many more consigned to eternity, forgotten in all but the deeds we know they have done on our behalf.
There are tales of men at sea, shielding us from the evil that devious enemies would wreak upon our noble people, images emblazoned at the very fore of our minds of redcoats on the fields of waterloo, of common men from the shires on the battlements of old Jerusalem.
The sufferings of our people, whether by plague, famine, work or war have all been met and faced down so that we, the people of today could be free.
Whether god fearing or otherwise, they lived by a code of morals based on the teachings of Christianity, with fathers respected, mothers adored and children raised to do right by others.
There is, still in the memories of the old, an England where your neighbour was as good as kin, where those in authority, by demanding allegiance had offered theirs to you in return.
Then, you would be applauded for holding aloft your flag, more so for offering yourself to dangers in defence of those who would hold it with you.
That was then, when we knew ourselves and were prepared to declare traitors as enemies rather than as ‘people of alternative conscience’ as the politically correct would have us call them today.
That England, world renowned and admired by all who seeking liberty, have sought to emulate our freedoms, is gone.
There lies now, off the coast of Europe, a group of islands riddled by the shells of injustice firing broadsides from its bastion of totalitarianism, its society broken and bowed under the incessant hammering of ‘progressiveness’, a new term coined to thinly veil the works of communism, oppression, enforced servitude, and obedience without question.
It is a shadow of its former self, where those who remember our past fondly are considered to be bigots, even extremists and that is even before our mouths open to speak.
To question the ideological legitimacy of a suicide bombers actions, you are open to accusations of islamophobia being levelled at you, to say that a woman has the same rights as a man you are culturally insensitive, to demand English customs and laws have precedence over imported customs and laws you will be labelled a xenophobic racist.
To display a Union jack in your window is to invite a tirade of abuse, orders to remove it for fear of upsetting those who have chosen to come here and enjoy the life we have built for ourselves.
The irony is in the fact that somebody fleeing their homeland and seeking refuge from their own nation would be encouraged to wave here the flag of the nation that persecuted them back home, why?
We have been forced to watch silently as everyday a new law is passed, another Briton jailed, another fine for not abiding by the idiocy imposed, another jihadist terror cell is uncovered and the terrorists released without charge to enjoy free homes, food and healthcare at the expense of the people they seek to kill whilst ex-soldiers settle down to another night of danger, sleeping rough on the streets.
That is the new justice, how dare we speak against it.
Many of you will have neighbours who are recently arrived here, some illegally, but that makes no difference, they are still considered by those who rule us to be our betters.
Some of those neighbours will be hardworking and appreciative of the refuge they have found, many will hate you and the way you live, a few will harbour sympathies for those wishing to end your life.
Some of them, not the ‘handful’ as the policy makers claim, but according to Scotland yard, up to 4,000 will have been trained in islamist terrorist training camps and are here waiting for an opportunity to kill you.
This is not scaremongering, it is the inevitable conclusion of appeasement, of policies created to change the face of Britain without the consent of the people, of blind faith in experimental ideas forged in the bowels of a self flagellating, ideological movement headed by the failed and universally rejected minds of the far left, and we are not safe as long as it is here.
We can argue that it is unfair, and be deemed to have misunderstood the reasons for atrocities committed against us, they will say you were bombed for being in Iraq, ignoring the fact you have never been there.
They will say, you have excluded them and they are expressing anger at a society that ignores them, when the fact remains, they have ignored or otherwise cursed you for the infidel you are.
They will accuse you of being stuck in the past when you declare that change is not always a good thing, when the truth is that they are stuck in the past, you have already changed and the beliefs they wish to force upon us are in any civilised society, best left in the past.
They will say, your society is unclean and immoral, forgetting that the breakdown of our society is a direct result of our leaders willingness to abandon it, wandering in search of a new social utopia, and to readily criminalise national pride stemming from the very foundations upon which society is built
We cannot hope to resurrect the order and sense of community we had if it is a criminal offence to criticise, or even question those who wish to destroy what remains of it.
For many, this sad state of affairs will be a new phenomenon, but to those who have been forced from their homes by followers of ranting Imams in less than a generation to make way for Islamic ghettoes, it is all too familiar.
On July 7th 2005, those who crossed many nations to reach Britain, chosen by them for its reputation as a nation where all could be free, were preaching hatred against us as their followers were busily engaged on a journey to paradise and 72 virgins as a reward for murdering in cold blood, those who had provided that refuge.
It would be naive to assume that all Imams were preaching this hatred, but when upwards of 90% of Imams in British mosques are immigrants born in countries known to harbour hatred for the west and openly rejecting the society they now live in, we can only guess at how much damage has already been done to the minds of impressionable young British muslims.
There is no way of measuring the number of potential terrorists in Britain today, perhaps if our security services had been as lax as our leaders in their duties, we would have a truer understanding of just how serious the threat is.
Many more concrete pillars would be needed for the memorial garden.
We know, there is no doubt now as the evidence is overwhelming, that a considerable number of mosques in Britain are funded by organisations sympathetic to the wahabi interpretation of Islam with Imams who preach this version of it sent here in abundance to lead them.
Wahabiism is not, by any reasoning, an ideology able to exist in harmony with the society we seek to defend, it is if anything, completely at odds with it.
Perhaps in a moment of madness, maybe out of fear, our leaders had until 7/7 forged a covenant of security with the more extreme followers of wahabiism.
They were allowed to live here preaching hatred and plotting atrocities abroad on condition that they did not attack Britain, the folly of this covenant is evident when counting the dead of that fateful day.
Omar Bakri, Abu Hamza, Anjem Choudray and many others have declared us to be the enemy, not because we as individuals have wronged them personally but because they had until 7/7 met no resistance, their views were unchallenged, they began to feel invincible, it was inevitable that a view unchallenged would, from a seed sown by ignorance bloom into a sense of righteous entitlement to commit, or otherwise encourage others to commit, acts of terrorism.
Still, a sense of fear stalks the corridors of parliament, few are willing to challenge a doctrine which answers criticism with violence, Pim Fortuyn and Theo Van gogh are laid down as examples of what may arise as a consequence of vocalising discontent.
To some, it would seem that the preference of the afraid is to stifle the voices of others who are unafraid by enacting new laws under the guise of defending communities from hate, to challenge the rhetoric we are threatened by is to invite criminal charges on the grounds of islamophobia.
To even assume that this method works is to ignore 7/7, it encourages it because a voice against it is not only considered wrong, it also demonstrates an apathy to the fact that it is likely to happen again.
There is a fork in every road, and every pendulum must one day swing to a halt, that fork will lead us to either freedom or the loss of it, the still pendulum will signal the end of our democracy or the end of terror.
As a nation, all races and religions united under the banner of freedom, we must choose now whether or not we place ourselves at the fork and block the path to terror, we must be ready to wind the cogs to ensure that when that pendulum comes to a halt, our freedom is given new life.
I have chosen my path, I know the dangers, I know the reward and I am not cowed by the thought of opposing terror when I see a glimmer of hope for the nation that has made me the man I am.
I feel, as do the many thousands of all races and religions who have shown courage in joining the English defence league, that somewhere in parliament and in homes the length and breadth of England, people are listening.
I feel proud that we as an organisation have taken to the streets together in defiance of those who label us Nazis and bigots, I know that the beacon is alight and it is fixed on every hill in England for all to see, those who were afraid and began to believe they were alone, now see that they are not.
We must, as a nation stand together, we must root out the extremists as one.
Christians, Hindus, Jews, Sikhs, Muslims, Pagans, Buddhists and atheists, black, white, yellow, brown, gay or straight, it is of no importance who you follow if you too believe that our right to live free, happy and prosperous lives supersedes all else.
I believe in the EDL, I believe that this is our time, ignore the shouts of ‘racist’, ‘uncle tom’ or fascist and STAND UP NOW!!!!
Freedom is not free.
LONG LIVE THE EDL
LONG LIVE FREEDOM
