Living in Troubled Times.
"A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself from within."
If he didn't have such an accent he could be a southerner.
Well we've always had an affiliation for the "Old" British. Even during the War Between the States, the Yankees used to castigate us as "cavaliers", the name of the supporters of King Charles in their own civil war.
I have seen a couple of Pat Condell's videos before. I had to watch this one a couple of times if for no other reason than to hear someone actually say what so many are thinking. If more Americans stood up for what they believe, telling the truth would not be a novelty. As the saying goes, if we as a nation do not speak up now, telling the truth will soon become an act of courage, if it isn't already.
I always appreciate his thoughts. He's succinct, accurate and fearless. In truth, I've been a bit surprised he hasn't been seized by the PC police over there and thrown into gaol. They have no first amendment. Long ago I watched a video of two British men speaking against immigration (I bet people wished they'd listened now), and they were arrested for what amounts to inciting. But it was awfully tame stuff and at first I thought it was all a joke.
He'd probably be arrested for "hate speech" here.
These days, I'm afraid your right. Anything that annoys Obama or his Attorney General can wind up doing just that to a person.
I've been watching him for a couple of years now.He definitely speaks his mind, and I agree with him 99% of the time.
I can't remember when I first heard him, but I am pretty sure a good friend sent me one of his broadcasts. I admire the man, because he's taking a terrible risk speaking as he does. First, he lives in a country overrun with home grown Jihadis. "Englishmen" with names like Ahmed Abu Stinkazi. Second, his own government can arrest him any time , just as they can here.He's articulate, well informed, and he has "dignitas."
i love pat condell.i think i first found him here on your website.it is written that good will be called evil and evil will be called good.never thought i would live to see it.
I'm encouraged by his videos, because they remind me that there are lots of good people, everywhere, with the courage to resist. I sometimes think most of the Western World is occupied by Sheeple and few others.
Hey Harry,(captaincrunch)I have seen video's of that guy too. He tells it like it is. Im surprised he's not in an English jail for sedition or something.If George Orwell saw England now he would have said, I told you so!On the latest episode on Terlingua Badlands, towards the end. They filmed at some old river guides house and he had a Confederate Flag in his window and an 'Obama Sucks' bumper sticker in the other window. They actually showed it on Natgeo channel. I laughed my ass off.I know people in that part of the country and its not a racist issue its a liberty issue.'Just leave us alone and don't destroy our way of life and we will treat the president and the office with respect. Now with this president, we have lost all respect for the man and the office.
You are absolutely right on both your statements in your first paragraph. Absolutely right.This is that show "Texas Badlands", right? I've got to get the DVD of season one. I have a hard time dropping in on a series right in the middle because I don't know the background. The old guy you are talking about sounds like my kind of person. In the Nat Geo series "Dead End Deliveries" there was an old man like that. He lived way the hell out in the deep woods up near the arctic circle. His shed had a big Confederate Flag. He said he was from Georgia, that one day he "just started walking" and wound up in the Big Freeze. He said he didn't dislike anyone but he wasn't going to apologize for his pride in his heritage to anyone either. I am often surprised, though I don't know why I should be, when very rural people articulate an idea so much better than I can.Obama is the anti-Christ, as far as I am concerned. If he went to college for four years to learn how to be a complete idiot he could not have done a better job of it than he has.
Hey Harry,(captaincrunch)I saw the first three episodes of Badlands, Terlingua on youtube without commericials so its easier to understand about the murder in the beginning.Lots of interesting charactors in Terlingua.look up bandslans terlingua on youtube and look for season 1, episode 1.Now what your not hearing from the Obama media machine.Two Royal family members from Quatar were kidnapped while on (hunting expedition) in Iraq. Hunting expedition? sounds like they were having a snipe hunt.Putin calls Turkish Prime minister Erdowan "Obama's Asskisser" S-400 air to ground missiles manned by Russians in Syria ready to shoot down aircraft from Turkey.I really wonder if this will all blow up into WW3?
Al Jazeera is making a big deal of the kidnapping of 36 Qataris', not surprising since Qatar owns the network. Apparently they were having a hunting party in a really bad place on the Saudi border. Good luck to them, I admit I'm not losing sleep over it.I don't have very good internet up here on the mountain and watching a thirty minute program would be hard to do, with all the buffering. I will see if it works though. I thought I would just buy the dvd if it's not too high.The Turks asked for it. They may have thought that Putin was like Obama, a limp member who can be pushed around.If they did, they made a serious miscalculation.
