Proud Infidel ranting about the ongoing war against democratic and secular values (Don't fool yourselves)! Maybe a voice of sanity in a wide ocean of madness.

The day reality hit home

The writer Andrew Anthony was a committed member of the liberal left - until the attacks of 11 September, 2001. A veteran of CND and Nicaraguan solidarity campaigns, he was astonished at the liberal left's anti-American reaction. And so he began to question other basic assumptions about race, crime and terror - a political journey he charts here, in these exclusive extracts from his compelling new book.

Read it all

Awful though that an atrocity of that magnitude (9/11) had to happen before A.A smelled the real world. But still there are many more out there that is as ignorant as ever. Will it take another 3000 killed to get them to their senses? How about 300 000? 3 miljon people?
But I credit A.A for his brawery. It's the moment before jumping out of an seemingly functioning airplane, that is the hardest. That airplane is pc correctness- "to bad" that they (hopefully) have not got an unlimited fuel supply... I'm feeling somewhat positive to day it seems. Somebody please come over and hit me over my knees with a lead pipe.

PC Airlines crashed on take-off.

The liberal left hasn't figured it out, yet. They're still waiting for the stewardess to bring them their peanuts.

Peanuts- Heh! Would "peanuts himself- JC"- be the steward?

If so- I would politely decline any service.

My old high school teatcher is one of the "språkrör"- spokesmen of the greens here. Peter Eriksson, sporting a fake northern accent, is driving an SUV guzzeling down 2.5 liters/ 100 KM and "insists" that a gasoline price of over 25 kronor/ liter (3.5 dollars/liter or $16 a gallon) is the sh*t. Easy to say when you are a member of the parliment here- easily grabbing in 50-100k a month while the average Joe sixpack has to manage by maby a third of that... (100K= 10 000£ or 15000$)

He was also behind "Botniabanan"- a twin train track going from Stockholm and Haparanda- costing biljons and biljons (without any real use), and the car tolls in Stockholm city, costing another 50 biljons... Yeah, he's a real star

Easy to impose higher taxes on Sven Sensson- when you don't have to worry about them yourself, innit?

Yes, there's a lot of humbug on the Left. But there's a lot of self-delusion on the Right as well.

I just remebered.

Since the car tolls are automated, done with cameras (if you don't have a transponder thingy)- there is a VERY popular sticker with Peter Erikssons licens plate number.

HEH!

Lead pipe? Just use toys made in China! They have lead in them, plus their purchase will fund communism, poison children, and ruin your positive outlook. :-)
