Jag skrev en massa saker de där dagarna. Det har sina poänger att gå tillbaka att titta ibland. Här är några inlägg:
London och liberala stöveltramp, Tokfascism hela dagen, Avrättning som politisk temperaturmätare, De ska fortsätta skjuta oss i huvudet, En vecka senare. Läs. Fundera, De sår, vi skördar.
Jag upptäckte i samma veva en mycket läsvärd brittisk blogg, Suspect Paki. Idag skriver samma bloggare ett helt enastående brev till Tony Blair; blixtrande vältaligt och laddat med berättigat raseri. Läs det! Skriv ut, spara, sprid. Minns.
Over 10 times as many people die every single year from drink driving related accidents. Why isn’t there a War on Alcohol? Why aren’t you demonising drinkers? Why aren’t you rounding up people at pubs and arbitrarily arresting anyone with car keys? Or to parallel a recent fluid case-that-never-could-have-been, those who don’t even have a license to drive, a car, or the means to get hold of one, but those who have merely talked about a recent drink-driving advert, or might have watched an episode of The Sopranos in which Tony Soprano has a quick snort from a hip-flask whilst driving.
That’s right Tony, ever year, over 10 times as many people die from drink-driving accidents. The victims are innocent, aren’t they? Perhaps you should watch out for the training camps, the madrassas where candidates are radicalised. They’re called pubs Tony. You might have heard of them. I am ten times more likely to be killed by a drunk driver than by terrorism. That’s a statistic I’ve weighted heavily in your favour.
I don’t see the media campaign against drink-driving. I don’t see you speaking up against it. I don’t see the arrests. I don’t see the pub raids, the public shaming of innocents, the hatred, the beatings of drunks, the torching of pubs. Why not Tony? You see, Hiroshima was an atrocity. The Holocaust was an atrocity. What is happening in Darfur, in Palestine, in Lebanon, in Chechnya, in Iraq - that is an atrocity. What happened in London was a victory for falsehood, a shame on the security services who now say there are loads of terrorists they’re keeping tabs on and tragic day for London. Let’s keep some sense of perspective.
Terrorism - and it usually has the state’s hand in it somewhere (you remember MI5 infiltrating, egging on and initiating explosions on behalf of IRA, don’t you Tony?) can only win if we live in fear. We refuse to live in fear. We refuse to give up our liberty to you or any terrorist. We demand justice and we demand the truth.
