Liberal Fairy Tales

The modern take on some old ideas:

  • The socio-economically advantaged young woman and the pea
  • The visually challenged duckling and how stereotypes hurt us all
  • Goldilocks and her hurtful imperialist exploitation of 3 harmless bears
  • The pigmentally challenged lady and 7 vertically challenged men who are still fully capable individuals in their own right
  • The capitalist explotation and degredation of Rumpelstiltskin
  • Rapunzel and the negative body images of today’s young women
  • Sleeping Beauty and the environmentally unfriendly use of apples
  • The old woman who lived in a shoe and was deined access to proper pregnancy counseling and health care
  • Hansel and Gretel and their lack of compassion for women of a certain age
  • Jack and Jill and the heartbreaking lack of government supported health care for uninsured individuals who fall down

Australian Police – Wimps or Whiners?

Aside from the usual stupidity of criminals, can anyone tell me what is wrong with this news story?

Warwick Police Station has again been the target of a brazen attack, with tyres on seven cars slashed in the early hours of this morning.

Two marked vehicles, three unmarked cars and two officers’ personal cars had their tyres slashed in the compound of Warwick Police Station some time between midnight and 6.20am this morning.

Note the key word  ‘again’ in this report.  This is the second time somebody has attacked cars at the police station:

The incident comes eight weeks after an attack that saw two privately-owned cars at the station set alight with what police believed was a Molotov cocktail.

Of course, its pretty stupid to come back to the scene of a crime.  Especially to a police station.  That organization created to investigate crimes, with specialized training in investigation and with the full force of the state behind it to find and detain criminals.  Like those who attack cars and destroy them.  Or at least one would think so.  Just about anywhere in the world attacking the police is the stupidest thing a criminal can do.  They are the biggest gang around and they can find you and punish you.

But apparently not in Australia, or at least this part of Western Australia.  Here, they whine on about closed circuit tv and lighting:

WA Police Union president Mike Dean said security at the station had not been prioritised by Premier Colin Barnett.

“There just seems to be absolutely no urgency about upgrading security at this active station,” he said.

“And here we have another incident a mere eight weeks after the Premier pledged to boost security at the facility.”

He said making the station car park compound secure would not be an “expensive fix”.

“All that is needed is the installation of CCTV and an electronic gate at an estimated amount of up to $20,000 to make this area secure,” he said.

Now this is the union spokesman (we can get into the whole idea of unionized police as government idiocy at another level later), but here’s an idea.  You are the fracking POLICE!  How about you go out and crack some skulls and find out who did this and put them in the pokey for a couple of decades?  With some nice broken limbs thrown in as a bonus?  Teaching the criminals that it is not allowed to even think about attacking the police would go a long way toward ensuring that your job is easier all around.

I have absolutely no experience with Australia other than a very pleasant visit there a couple of years ago.  We were treated very politely and had a wonderful time everywhere we went.  However, Australia is overrun with politically correctness.  Especially the enviroKooks and the minions of the Great and Powerful Algore.  They are very, very, very, very, very guilty about the treatment of the Aborigines and never stop bashing themselves and their culture.  They just turfed out their very successful Conservative Prime Minister and replaced him with a socialist who immediately promised to bow down to the UN and Kyoto.

And apparently they have police who are so wimpy they can’t even go out and find people who attack their very own cars.

British Police Attacked by Mob

Of course as Rachel Lucas points out – unarmed police are about as useless as tits on a bull if the mob decides that they don’t want to obey them:

For the love of God, Britain. You really, really, really, really need to grow your balls back.

A good first step would be to arm your police. I know it sounds all hillbillyish and redneckian, but there’s something called “deterrence.” It’s this crazy concept we uncivilized rubes over here in ‘Murrica apply in order to give our law enforcement the ability to, you know, enforce the law.

But the wimps there have learned their lessons.  For example they don’t want to use the word MOB (as in group of people rioting against the public order and beating up two cops) because that might be inflammatory:

Whilst we would never use the word ‘mob’ which is an inflammatory word, we can confirm that eye witnesses have described their initial fear that officers were going to be seriously injured or killed.”

and Rachel shows what will probably be the followup:

I expect the followup article to this one to explain how the injured officers are being sued for inflaming the rage of the crowd, and maybe even a few arrests will be made of the witnesses for hate speech because they described the scene as “horrifying.”

The British do make a habit of locking up people who actually defend themselves and their property.

Get out while you can – those of you who don’t want to be paying jizya in a few years.

Today’s Common Sense

From Arnold Ahlert at Political Mavens:

Borders. Our borders remain as porous as ever, and the virtual fence is a high-priced, “high tech” disaster. A PC screwing of gargantuan proportions–and the American public knows it. The PC-ers think they can “finesse” this one by browbeating us with name calling (xenophobia, racism, etc.) or appeals to our “reasonableness.”

The war on terror. Only a moron–or someone who can’t see beyond his politically correct nose–could look at all the acts of terror committed before and after 9/11–and come to the conclusion that terrorism is “an exaggerated threat.” PC-ers still think we can “jaw-jaw” with suicidal maniacs who boast that their principle advantage over us is they love death while we love life. What level of atrocity it would take to blow the cobwebs out of these peoples’ brains is anyone’s guess. 3000 people exterminated in an hour-and-a-half wasn’t enough. Their threshold? 56 million people died in WWll, beginning a year after Neville Chamberlain, the historical epitome of political correctness, secured “peace in our time.” Apparently we have a long way to go.

There’s more good stuff – go read it all.
