Welcome to statism

Americans should be forced to read British newspapers every day, because it gives them an insight into the world of abasement to Muslims, big government and managed care.  Today’s horror story is one in which a senile old lady was snatched from her daughter’s loving care.  You can also read about the British government’s ongoing war against the Gurkhas, something that completely baffles me.  The Brits cravenly allow every two bit, anti-Western, misogynistic, homophobic, antisemitic Islamist into the country, but resolutely refuse to provide a home for those Gurkhas who were willing to fight and die for Britain.

    They cut off and torture those that support them. How long will a tree survive after destroying its roots and branches, Book? How long.

    Bad ideas in Britain seem often to become prominent in the US with a lapse of time, sometimes decades…read some of the essays by C S Lewis dating from the late 1940s and early 1950s, and see if they don’t have a contemporary ring to them.

    British papers seem to be paying more attention to this article than our own do:

    Gurkhas…Gen William Slim, who commanded British forces in Burma during WWII, had many of many nationalities–Brits, Chinese, Indians, Africans–under his command, and was particularly fond of the Gurkhas. In his book “Defeat into Victory,” he recalls a time when he was out in the open and the area came under mortar attack. Although he wanted to do the prudent thing and take shelter, he was “restrained by the thought of what a figure the Corps Commander would cut, sprinting for safety” and, “not liking it a bit, I continued to walk forward. Then, from behind a bush that offered scant cover to his bulky figure, rose my old friend the Subedar Major of the 7th Gurkhas, his face creased in a huge grin which almost hid his twinkling almond eyes. He stood there an shook with laughter at me. I asked him coldly what he was laughing at, and he replied that it was very funny to see the General Sahib wandering along there by himself *not knowing what to do! and, by Jove, he was right: I did not!”

    Slim reflected on how troops of the various nationalities would have reacted to this situation and concluded “Only a Gurkha would stand up and laugh.”

    My Mom adored the Gurkha’s. After the British liberated the Dutch from the concentration camps in Indonesia, the Indonesian people decided to push for their liberty and embarked upon a campaign of terror against those poor, disease ridden starved, terrorists camp residents (who were still kept in the camps prior to being repatriated).

    The Indonesians would sneak into the camps at night and chop up the ex-prisoners. That all changed when the British put the Gurkha’s in charge of camp security. During the night, the Gurkha’s would lie in the ditches surrounding the camp, with big knives at the ready. In the morning, instead of chopped-up ex-prisoners in the camp, there would be chopped-up Indonesians outside of the camp. The camp raids stopped very quickly after this.
