Between time spent at Cambridge & UCL on my MA, I’ve listened to a lot of liberal elites. They have the same opinions on, well, everything, as the liberal elites in the US.
My flatmates are among what I believe/hope to be a silent majority of Brits in this country who are, you know, sane when it comes to their politics. They love their country & respect the troops who defend their freedom.
I’m not going to repeat the whole story, Ace has got it covered, but there was a Welcome Home parade yesterday for British troops returning from Iraq. The usual, useful idiots–al Qaeda in Iraq & Taliban apologists–were out to embarrass themselves as they tried to shame the troops.
Mission decidedly not accomplished.
Anyway, I wanted to post video footage of the Brits in the street–the ones out to welcome home their heroes–shouting the “protesters” out of the public square. This is the usually silent majority I referred to above.
Note: As with any link to Ace, the usual language warnings apply. Additionally, there may be cursing in the vid, I can’t tell; their accents make it hard for me to discern 4-letter words from ones we don’t find offensive, but funny. Given the inflamed emotions, I’d imagine a few of the former were thrown around. You’ve been warned.
