Or.. to quote FDR.. "This is preminetly a time to speak the truth, the whole truth, frankly and boldly, and.......This great Nation will endure as it has endured, will revive and will prosper. So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself—nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance."
and to quote Martin Luther King Jr in his Letter from Birmingham Jail to Negro Clergy who had criticized his involvement in peaceful demonstrations in Birmingham Alabama.
Oh how relevant that highlighted part is in regard to the EDL. The EDL has become a civil rights movement. The same diagnosis of British society applies..
-"superficial social analysis" (By the establishment)
-"Deals with effects rather than underlying causes" (the establishment approach)
Listen for a moment to Tommy Robinson's interview response as he describes the way police and public policy have conspired to supress and repress genuine and legitimate public protest against the undermining of their country.
So.. to reiterate the title of this entry.. "The EDL will prosper and grow"...OR... England will confirm that it has descended so far into the pit of political perfidy and tragic tyranny, that those hosts of error that Willian Jennings Bryan spoke of.. might even gain and hold the upper hand until the whole nation is dragged mercilessly down into the sewer of racial strife and religious Jihad/Crusade.
The EDL could conceivably die out.. deteriorate, degenerate into a 'one hit wonder' type movement, but if it does.. what does that say about the English? I think it says the worst possible things that the fertile and justified imagination can dream up. Far from the maddening multi racial and multi religious crowds of the cities...the parishes and provincial areas are the ones who are mad. Too comfortable in their imagined security, too bullied by so called anti racism public policy, to cowered by the fear of being called a racist or an extremist, the agerage "Pom" will find his land overtaken by those who's land he once took over.. History might describe this as 'justice'....but those living now did not carry out the works of the dark past.
There is no more empire... the vast textile mills of Lancashire have vanished to be replaced by Indian and Bangladeshi sweat shops.. now the English must stand on their own economic feet.. come what may. And what comes.. may well be economic privation, racial strife, social struggle and all the while the insane public servants will be speaking about peace and tranquility that only exists in their sadly programmed politically correct minds.
I believe Tommy could achieve greatness, by studying the speeches of the greats and not sounding quite so reactionary.. but in the absence of any other voices of patriotism.. except perhaps the BNP.. which has it's own baggage..... I hear none.
"Tommy makes some specific claims in his talk..and I can easily verify them one by one from a careful and hermeneutic approach to the Quran and hadith, but that is beyond the scope of this post. If you wish to know more.. you can place a comment and include your email address and I'll write to you.
CONCLUSION. Tommy needs to familiarize himself with the history of the civil rights movement with MLKjr..and with both this letter from Birmingham Jail and..the "I have a dream" speech... personally I have memorized that last speech and it's not that hard to do. (but took me a month of morning walks and taking it sentence by sentence with a torch...it's awful dark at this time of year..and damn cold) I still practice it at least once per day to keep it's rich content fresh in my mind. (and to fight off Alzheimers by keeping the neural paths working well!)
