LIBTARD MOONBAT VIDEO RANT…
DYSON: When we see these kind of conflagrations, we’re able to point the finger and say, ‘Oh, how horrible it is’ — but we’re horrible, too, because we’ve quietly fueled and fomented the kind of unnecessary hostility towards Muslims that we ought to take a mirror at and look at ourselves.
The BBC has pulled a film about the experiences of rioters during last summer’s disturbances just hours before it was due to be broadcast after a ruling from a judge.

This article is a dire warning shot to Europe – spotting the harm coming its way, which has already riddled Israel over the last 5 decades, thus serving a precursor to similar abuse heading in Europe’s direction. In that regard, extending beyond our 20.3.2012 article: Spring 2012: the springboard to Global conquest.

That is just the current bailout. This is after the 2010 bailout plus any previous forgiveness. Then consider previous cutbacks in Greek government “generousity” and now the new cutbacks in Greek government “generousity” and you get a sense of just how wacky big government, bleeding heart, liberals will go before they are forced to stop — apparently that point is when there is absolutely no way to pay for it.Then, [...]

Upholding the jail terms given to Blackshaw and Sutcliffe-Keenan, the Lord Chief Justice said the men had used technology for crime – and it was wrong to suggest their offences had been minor simply because they had not gone door-to-door encouraging people to riot.
“It is a sinister feature of these cases that modern technology almost certainly assisted rioters in other places,” he said. “What both these appellants intended [...]

The riots that hit London and other English cities last week have the potential to spread beyond the British Isles. Class rage isn’t unique to England; in fact, it represents part of a growing global class chasm that threatens to undermine capitalism itself.
The hardening of class divisions has been building for a generation, first in the West but increasingly in fast-developing countries such as China. [...]

I’m watching the news on BBC 24 about the riots in the UK. As an expat Brit, I am watching this with a lot of interest. Societal breakdown has always been a fear of mine and hearing stories from my Brother in law about the trouble in Croydon (South of London), the police really seem to have lost control. As Celente says, [...]
