LITTLEJOHN ON AMERICA AND THE TEA PARTY. A GOOD READ AND SEE THE LINK FOR ALL

I won’t post it all as not all will relate to an American reader.
But the following MUST be posted and I think many perhaps all will find favour in Littlejohn’s take on America and the Tea Party.

I hope you will visit the site at the link. Some interesting photos and video explain much re. the good Brits.
Trust me, they aren’t all like that unwashed looking foul mouthed anti capitalist who also owns a million dollar home in Calif. And why the druggie bastard is ever allowed in our country is beyond my understanding I will never see my country again, as my wife can’t come over even if her health allowed.  So yes. I’m bitter on more than one level.

Read on.

RICHARD LITTLEJOHN on the magnificent millions paying silent tribute at the Tower of London - while selfish anarchists bring chaos to the heart of the capital

By Richard Littlejohn for the Daily Mail

Crowds at the Tower have exceeded all expectations and, despite long queues, visitors have behaved with great dignity and decorum. Even though thousands of people file slowly past the moat at any given time, they deliver their tribute silently, becoming almost as integral to the occasion as the poppies themselves.

The huge attendance is also a powerful rebuke to the sneering Guardian newspaper, which contemptuously dismissed this poignant tribute as a ‘Ukip-style’ memorial.  It was a reminder that the vanishing values and traditions I wrote about in my recent book, Littlejohn’s Lost World, are still out there if you care to look.

Britain remains a small ‘c’ conservative nation. Most of us are quietly patriotic, have reverence for those who serve in our armed forces and respect for others, even when we disagree.

Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for elements of our political class. We are ruled by out-of-touch careerists who hold the opinions of the people who pay their salaries in utter contempt.

The BBC, which is supposed to serve the nation as a whole, delights in giving a megaphone to extremists, Left-wing bigots and pseudo revolutionaries.

Increasingly, it seems we live in two Britains. One, which contains the quiet majority, is solid, self-sufficient, intent on maintaining decent standards and doing the right thing.

The other, which is small but more voluble, is selfish, intolerant, attention-seeking and determined to rip up the old order.

While millions have been paying a silent tribute at the Tower, a rabble of attention-seeking soi-disant anarchists brought chaos to Westminster, a few miles along the Thames.

Demonstrators clashed with riot police, lobbed missiles, daubed graffiti and chanted: ‘One solution, revolution!’

Oh, for heaven’s sake, grow up.

Inevitably, the repulsive Russell Brand, darling of the BBC, turned up at the demo in Trafalgar Square on the latest leg of his rolling book tour. Needless to say, he wasn’t wearing the obligatory Guy Fawkes mask adopted by the protest group, Anonymous. Brand wasn’t looking for anonymity.

Perhaps he was hoping to get arrested, which would add to his street cred and shift a few more copies of his incoherent, semi-literate ‘manifesto’ to gullible students who see him as some kind of messiah.

Don’t forget that this sexually-incontinent ‘anti-capitalist’ hypocrite with a multi-million-dollar home in Hollywood and a history of serious illegal substance abuse was consulted as an ‘expert’ witness by MPs on the Commons Home Affairs Committee looking into the legalisation of drugs.

Also gracing the demo with her presence was that mad old bat Vivienne Westwood, who has amassed a fortune making daft frocks for women with more money than brains.

Observing this country from abroad might lead some to conclude that the likes of Brand and Westwood and their gormless band of acolytes are truly representative of modern Britain.

That would be as false an impression as dismissing all Americans as selfish, gun-toting, God-bothering crazies.

Sometimes that’s the conclusion Hollywood’s limousine liberals and the Left-leaning political class who dominate Washington would prefer you to form. Like our political class, they try to impose their own prejudices and agenda on an unwilling electorate.

Every few years, the voters bite back. When Barack Obama was elected, even many of those on the Right wished him well, as America’s first black President, who could unite the nation. But they have come to realise he’s just another aloof, Leftist elitist with barely disguised disdain for ordinary people.

This week, the U.S. voted in droves for conservative candidates. Republicans reaped the benefit of the revolt and now control both houses of Congress.

But there’s no great love for the Republican leadership, either. They’re seen in Middle America as part of the problem, not the solution. It is why younger politicians such as Florida’s Marco Rubio, Texan Ted Cruz and Kentucky’s Rand Paul are now being talked up as potential presidential candidates.

All are original thinkers who enjoy the support of the Tea Party, the popular grassroots movement which arose in disgust at the antics of the political establishment.

Like Ukip, the Tea Party is caricatured as a bunch of racists hankering for the past.

On a visit to the U.S. a couple of years ago, I went to a Tea Party rally out of curiosity to hear Rubio speak. There were 5,000 people in the audience. They weren’t the mythical, cousin-marrying, cross-burning hillbillies portrayed by the mainstream media both here and in the U.S.

I met lawyers, small businessmen, teachers and stay-at-home mums, all concerned about the impact spendthrift policies pushed by professional politicians was having on their families and their future prosperity.

In Britain, they’d all be Daily Mail readers: the decent type who would once have been the backbone of the Conservative Party.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar.

Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
