Here’s something I feel strongly about – as I hate bullying of any kind

Here’s something I feel strongly about – as I hate bullying of any kind. Yes, Mrs. May lost a few seats. But let’s not forget something of more importance – she WON. Marxist Corbyn is quick to tell her how she should resign, but, hang on a minute, he lost dramatically. The people of Britain wanted him a lot less than they did Brexit, so walk on, Worzel Gummidge – and take that sack of potatoes with the IQ of an ashtray, Abbott, with you. Everyone is quick to wield the knife, but let’s not forget WHY May lost those seats: Snide tricks from the otherwise defunct Labour Disarray (I can’t call them a party) like no tuition fees for students, a promise he knew he couldn’t – and wouldn’t – have to keep. Say bye bye to 2 million voters with that one.
And before you all crucify Mrs. May, remember the „alternative“: Corbyn the Marxist, Abbott the maths expert, Unions, Nationalisation, the dismantling of our armed forces into „disarmed forces“, raising benefits for the lazy, open borders for the immigrants and future Labour voters, borrowing and spend, spend, spend, bankrupt the country like they did last time and wait for the Tories to clean up after them. So many Brits have short memories. Back May, instead of stabbing her in the back. Then tackle Brexit with strength – not fairy tales a la Corbyn. We need to get this Brexit done with asap. We need to get as far away from the EU as possible.
When I say this I am thinking more of my country than of myself, believe me. In the renowned German newspaper “Frankfurter Allgemeine” last week, Mrs. Merkel told an astounded circle of journalists that Germany will become an Islamic State, sooner than she had thought. Already, Mosques are springing up while churches are closing – and yes, she still thinks it is good for Germany. What? Now, if Mrs. May had have said something like THAT, then I would understand and support her vilification. Looking at the facts, it seems very grim indeed in Europe. The Muslim population is rising at an incredible rate. But not only in Europe. In the USA, Canada, Australia and even New Zealand too.
But, as we live in Europe, it is here that we have to play our part in stifling this ridiculous nonsense. Not because anyone wants to harm or insult Muslims, but because we have OUR way of life, one which our fathers and grandfathers risked their lives for, so that we can be free. The Muslim faith is far too restrictive for Europeans and indeed the entire western world. We don’t want to see our women hidden under sacks, we don’t need Sharia Law, we don’t throw gay people form the roofs of apartment buildings, we don’t throw acid into the faces of women that may inadvertently look at another man, we don’t stone adulterers, we don’t behead people of a different faith and we don’t blow innocent men, women and children to bits, there where they are enjoying themselves.
WE are tolerant. We allow you into our countries, support you with money and clothing, invite you to integrate, yet at the same time we do everything to understand your religious beliefs. In Muslim countries – for example Saudi Arabian, we get arrested for taking a BIBLE with us. In Egypt, Coptic Christians are murdered on a daily basis and are on the verge of being wiped out. Women visiting your countries have to “cover up”, yet we allow you to throw entire black sacks over your heads. Well, the women. Then, women are just second-class citizens to you. Not so HERE.
Now, in the eyes of certain members of our society, saying this makes me a NAZI. They don’t tell me why – and after all, I am simply providing facts. If this is not so – then I ask all those referring to me as a right-wing Hitlerite, therefore refusing to employ me, to tell me which parts of this statement I have got wrong. Tell me where I am saying something wrong. My friends, who just happen to include black people, Muslims, Russians, Italians, Austrians, Spaniards, Danes, Australians, Americans and above all Germans, KNOW that I am anything BUT racist. So stop being so bloody petty – I have already blocked one zealot from my facebook page who found it correct to constantly criticise my opinion and insult me. Excuse me whan I say – Germany is NOT a Muslim country and does NOT belong to Islam, as Mrs. Merkel will have us believe. In fact, Islam has only been registered to any extent within the last 35 years in Germany – so HOW can it BELONG to Germany?
The same is valid in Britain, where we have only half as many Muslims as Germany. This is not a political rant – it is common sense. I am not anti-Islam, I am anti-Islamisation in Christian countries, like Germany, like Britain. Tolerance: It is our way of life. It is how we have lived for centuries. Oh yes, back in the 17th century, we did our fair share of beheading, sacking, raping and killing in the name of the cross. But that was centuries ago and we have learned from our mistakes. I ask myself why YOU are so unwilling to do the same? But with a difference. I don’t want to CHANGE you or your beliefs or way of life. In your own countries, please feel free to do as you please. But it would be highly appreciated if you would observe OUR faith, our rules, our way of life and abide by it when in OUR countries. If you decide to live among us, then please live WITH us. Report those who would see us dead in the name of Islam to the police. Help us stop all of this senseless killing of innocent people.
We have allowed you to build mosques. If any of you suspect someone of radicalising children, report them BEFORE these children are made into killing machines. When terrible events occur in the name of Allah – take to the streets and demonstrate AGAINST them. Show us that you are just as willing to eradicate these monsters form society just as much as we are. In last week’s football match against Australia, the entire Saudi team bar ONE decided NOT to observe the minute’s silence for those killed in the terrorist attack on London in which two Australians died last week. This is not exactly endearing. I am not criticising you, I am appealing to you. I am not a bigot, nor am I a racist.
In fact, I’m probably one of the most peace-loving people you will find. I was a true flower-power hippie and believed in the doctrines of peace and love. And still do. And now, back to the beginning of this essay – when we talk of forgiving, peace and love, then offer the same support to a much-beleaguered Theresa May, who felt that it was right to cash in on the Tory popularity to have a stronger backing when dealing with the EU by calling elections years before necessary. Support her and help her get us a better Brexit deal, one that would also be advantageous for Germans and the British alike. After all, I believe that OUR two countries DO belong together.

    It cannot be gainsaid that you speak total common sense with this post Colin. I totally agree with your comments. I know you to be a fair and balanced person. No one could possibly accuse you of being a racist. Even the misguided sleepwalking do Gooders. But you're not shouting in the dark. Happily there are many who feel as you do. A concern for all mankind and not just self serving minorities who destroy all as they push their own agendas forward or smugly boast 'Look how liberal I am'. This while some would drag us back to primitive times. Let's be tolerant. But not of that.

      Thanks for that, Geoff. Nice to know that I am not going completely mad and am not totally alone. I feel passionately for my country and still remember the wonderful place it once was when I was a child. It was a childhood without suicide bombings, without racial hate and where no one had to lock their doors - or at least left a key hanging on a string attached to the letterbox. Where neighbours were friendly and helped one another. This is not a fantasy - I actually grew up like this. I remember only too well, how my mum and dad would never see another child go without and always bought them a present when it was MY birthday. Small things (and sometimes bigger) that made such a difference. No kids had to go without - I would go to the coast with my parents and chosen friends or could go to things like the Farnborough air show with the Jones's across the road when my parents had less time. I remember us all being there for one another - although I don't think they were all very pleased when I decided to hold an impromtu rock concert with my band in our front garden :-) Although the police were quite nice about it....... :-) We understood the concept of tolerance. My great next door neighbours got me into bluebeat and ska - I knew "The Israelites" off to a T. We were open for new things too. My grandmother, bless her, loved the Pink Floyd and could sing "See Emily Play" with her shaky voice quite well :-) This has all changed because of our tolerance. We have taken on too many and allowed them to CHANGE us and the way we are, instead of showing them how we are and why they should be pleased to be part of us. Instead, we are allowing them to take us over. Thank God I'm now of an age whereby I will not have to witness the complete extinction of our culture, although it saddens me to think of my son Piers, of Katharina's son Leo and all the other young people who will have to bear our dubious heritage. Still, I don't want to change. You are right Geoff - remain tolerant - but not stupid.

    Keep on trucking mate but as Peter suggests, medication first . This is truly a subject to raise the blood pressure. Have a look at " Brexiteers against the fascist left " website to see that you are not alone. It would be great if you could post your latest essay on their site , they would love it. Cheers :)
