"There is a reason that English-speaking people have dominated the world"
Incredibly constipated twaddle from the fascist blogosphere. :wow:



http://www.captainsquartersblog.com/mt/archives/004900....


Once again, the butchers have misunderestimated their expected victims. Of all people in the world, the British are most like us, deep down. Yes, they have been hampered by such close propinquity with Europe and Europeanism. But when it comes down to it, the British are not Europeans.

They are Brits.

I am positive that George Bush will offer anything they need -- but I'm equally sure that Tony Blair will say no, they're perfectly capable of taking care of these swine themselves... and they will. This will serve to galvanize the British public like nothing has since, as the Captain said, the blitz.

First will come the grief, then the inchoate rage, then the smouldering fury that leads to a renewed interest, almost obsession, with stamping out this craven, new threat once and for all. We know. We've been there.

The militant Islamists miscalculated in America, they miscalculated in Australia, and now they have miscalculated in Great Britain. We, Brit and American, will finish the job. There is a reason that English-speaking people have dominated the world for centuries: there is something noble in our culture that will not allow us to give up or give in, an idealistic fever to "let justice be done, though Heaven should fall."

1. They're whistling past the graveyard
The Neocon pundits are in their last throes.

3. The author is probably barely in his twenties.
Writes like someone who died in 1920. :eyes:

4. I'd Guess Lower
I'm betting this is someone who has been recently forced to study for their PSAT.

5. "galvanize"=eat up any old shit they are fed
After all, Bush galvanized a fearful, distressed country with a number of lies and deceits into backing an Iraq war.

And he's hoping that we get "galvanized" again, maybe with an itty, bitty attack on US soil?

6. Gee. And all this time I thought that Anglo-Americans dominated
because they were unflinchingly ready to kill anyone who got in their way.

8. I aggree with this part...
"First will come the grief, then the inchoate rage, then the smouldering fury that leads to a renewed interest, almost obsession, with stamping out this craven, new threat once and for all. We know. We've been there."

There's only one problem: BUSH has taken us so far off course he's lost sight not only of land but of the sky.

Iraq is not part of the war on terror. It's a sideshow.

How does Bush summon his cabinet?
"Send in the Clowns!"

I think of the events of 9/11, and I still get angry. The orginization that planned it, the Terror Masters (monsters) I want dead. They can be tried and imprisoned first... but dead is where I want them. And BUSH doesn't care. He wanted to invade Iraq... to avenge his father, to secure oil, to transfer large sums of money to coorperate backers, to secure Isreal, to distract from the fact that he's robbing us blind, it doesn't matter. It's not part of the war on Terrorists.

Sideshow.

The clowns are running the country, distracting us from the pickpockets working the crowd.

10. Besides the Fact That the Author Is a Dolt
Propinquity could easily be replaced with "proximity". There is absolutely ZERO reason for using the word "propinquity" except to be obnoxious.

Inchoate could easily be left entirely off. As an adjective it's more or less useless. It presence serves only to stroke the author's self-importance.

A bombing of British tubes and a bus are not likely to "galvanize the British public like nothing has since... the blitz". That's stupid and idiotic. Not to minimize today's attacks, but the British are not strangers to terrorism nor are they knee-jerk reactionary zombies like a good portion of Americans. The blitz was one thing and this terrorist attack is quite another.

12. precisely, friend GiovanniC ... in fact ...
the entire first paragraph truly sucks the ass. His use of overblown rhetoric bothers me almost as much as his convoluted sentence structure. He should get a copy of Strunk and read it carefully.

But then he wouldn't sound like an asshole and that would indeed be dishonest. I bet though, that if he really tried, he could be both spare AND stupid.

13. "close propinquinty" is superfluous redundancy.
I didn't even notice that. All I could see was impaction.
