England Used to Be a Country of Men


www.nationalreview.com

With London succumbing to looters and muggers, it’s time to ask what happened to the once-manly English people. The August 9 issue of the Daily Mail, for example, includes a photo of a young man taking off his pants on the street as an impatient looter waits with the emasculated Briton’s sneakers and shirt already in his hands. Luckily the feeble Englishman chooses boxers over briefs, but I can’t help wondering if men such as T. E. Lawrence, Winston Churchill, or Lord Acton could have stomached

True John Lennon or Julie Andrews would be of little help in these turbulent days but what about such notables as Guy Fawkes, Field Marshall Bernard Montgomery,

What happened the English spirit the repelled the Germans and endured the battle of Britain??? what changed??? Clearly something did or these riots wouldn't be happening..

The last time I saw REAL men was that from the great wars; since then, men generally have become weak, spineless and gutless.

(I'm not saying all men, just a majority of them.)

Its not the peoples fault, its NWO In the making.

Regarding the riots, Its my belief the police orchistrated them them selves.

Please watch this footage of how the riots began in Birmingham, Police started kettling innocent shoppers and making all youths congregate together in certain places, witnesses state police made them leave their business they were going about because of riots......there were NO riots going on untill everyone retaliated at the police who were being out of order.

How Birmingham Riots Began

At around 4.50, witnesses are cclearly stating there was no problems untill the police showed.

The blame should not be placed on the likes of those who 'took off their trousers'. But rather the ones who are forcing people to do such things.

Saying no would have earned that man a severe beating if not death, are your trousers worth dying for?

Yes there are times we must stand up, but when the negatives far outweigh the positives is it worth it?

Sure he could have said no, then he would have in the best case scenario taken a beating and still lost his trousers, he is now worse off than he was just giving them away to someone he decided would win in a fight. Other cases like where I stepped in to prevent an attack and was then attacked my self let the positives outweigh the negatives because the original victim was able to escape (And I had peace of mind). It's not a lack of heroes, merely deciding when to fight.

Guy (or Guido) Fawkes was Spanish, and since when does wanting to blow up hundreds of people make you a 'man'?

There's just been some very violent, criminal riots, I'm sure you'd agree that is something that isn't unheard of in America? What are you suggesting, violence met with violence, attack the criminals? Fine, not sure how 'manly' that is.

I'm surprised that about 90 of the people on the "greatest heroes" list are there at all.

However, you're correct. Britain used to be a country of manly men, and hasn't been since about the late 1950's. Ever since the Politically Correct crowd got hold of the political agenda, Britain and the Western World in general have been catering to the weakest members of society, not the strongest.

Throughout human history, it used to be that the strong survived and that the weak didn't. You didn't want to contribute to society? Fine, then leave. None of this sitting on the couch collecting welfare for three or four generations. You didn't contribute, you starved, period.

It's time that the Western World started catering towards the strongest members of society again, not pandering to the weakest. While we still need to make sure that those who are infirm are taken care of, those that are simply lazy should be taken out onto the ice floe to die.

Not sure who will be angered by such redkneck nonsense to be honest, just surprised that people will actually buy into it.

Don't give the British so much crap over this
its just something that happens sometimes. think LA riots its basically the same thing.The British have a bunch of stupid stuff ahead of them as we American have already gone through this. Just wait English people, special interest groups will start popping up claiming the white man is holding them down and what not, laws and appeasement will soon follow then you will go bankrupt like us for propping them up. Just wait till illegals aliens start flooding into your flawed system and taking advantage of it and your government lets it happen because they are afraid something like whats going on now will happen. Its mean to say this but the British who talked crap about us Americans calling us racist over the border issue are going to get a taste of what its like to be us just wait this is only the beginning

The root of the problem are the Socialist/Liberal parties that the majority voted in...and who are their biggest voters? Those on welfare and women!

It's time to go back to grass roots. Let kids be kids and men be men.

Englands greatest heroes?

Oliver Cromwell? Who butchered and nurdered hundreds of thousands of women and children.
Tony Blair? war criminal
James Connoly? an Irish freedom fighter who fought against the crown and was executed for it?
Allister Crowley? Satanist and pedophile?
Bono and Bob Geldof are Irish not British.

List needs a bit of revision i think.

Yes obviously the manly response to children stealing shoes and phones is to shoot them.Not arrest them, put them to trial and send them to jail.

The situations sure would have been so much better with the addition of a few million gun nuts taking the law into their own hands and murdering the under 12's for the sake of a flat screen TV.

As for that list of greatest Britains, apart from a smattering of nutters like Guy Fawkes, A FAILED religious terrorist, a lot of them are inventors musicians poets and TV stars, some of which are still alive. Did you happen to see Paul McCartney rushing in to stop the rioting by any chance?

There was an incident here in Canada a couple of decades ago, called the Oka Crisis.

The guys on both sides, being "Men."

And when the women came in on their trucks with the groceries looking at both sets and telling the to get the frack out of the way, with a look of "good god your annoying" the men all moved. And had the grace to look chastized through their masks and masks of work.

Always found that amusing.

Your "country of men" was always a bunch of idiots who didn't know when to shut up and get out of the way of the real work.

What happened the English spirit the repelled the Germans and endured the battle of Britain???



Consider that this latest explosion of looting, robbing, and burning began in Tottenham, a dicey corner of north London, after police shot and killed a 29-year-old Tottenham resident named Mark Duggan. ... What we do know is that police pulled over a taxi in which Duggan was a passenger. Police say they heard a gun fired, which prompted them to shoot and kill Duggan.

This reaction says something horrific about the culture in these neighborhoods, just as much as the 1992 Los Angeles Riots displayed that all wasn’t right with the culture in the poorer neighborhoods of Los Angeles.


True, real men go quietly and orderly to the slaughterhouse. No excuse for rioting, looting, and civil disobedience.

Things are bad all over the world. Governments and law enforcement have every cause to be jumpy, can't let the people just do whatever they want. Governments require their subjects to be obedient and orderly.

Where is that English spirit to tough it out? Stiff upper lip and such?


I submit that one of the chief causes of their now emasculated spirit is the loss of so much of their individual liberty — like a child used to a parent fighting his or her battles, a people dependent on their government for everything cannot take care of themselves and are prone to childish outbursts.

The men were out protecting our streets from scum, and guess what?

Because the looters were not facing the police but us average joes, they turned tails and went home to mommy.

We do not need guns to feel like hardmen, most of us, myself included are as rough as a badgers arse and am not shy in coming forward for a fight.

Just like when I was on a NATO excercise in Norway against American troops (AMFL). There was not many yanks left standing after a missunderstanding in Voss!

The men have not gone anywhere.

We just dont have the need to shout how big, manly, and tooled up with guns we are.

We just let our fists do the talking
