Rioting and looting spread across London on Monday as hooded youths set buildings and cars ablaze, smashed shop windows and hurled bottles and stones at police in a third night of violence in Britain’s worst unrest in decades.
Prime Minister David Cameron cut short his holiday to fly home to tackle the violence, which appeared to be led by youths alienated by years of underemployment which left them feeling marginalized even before the economic downturn…
Marginalized youth? Certainly – but also a civilization which has lost the will to defend itself. 70 years ago the people of London would have known what to do with people who – regardless of grievance – are really just using the incident as cover for a rampage of looting…they would have beaten them down.
It would be different if these people were trying to do something – if, that is, they were trying to conduct a revolution. Overthrow Parlaiment, set up a Republic…heck, re-establish absolute monarchy. Something, anything…but all they are doing is burning things and stealing. And the Brits are just wringing their hands over it…and even if the British people wanted to do something about it, they really can’t: Britain’s gun control laws have ensured that if ever some thousands of people want to loot and pillage, there is no way for the citizenry to stop them.
It is such a sad end for a once-great nation. Keep it in mind – and don’t let it happen here.
Enfield, Tottenham, and now London. A preview of what bams wants to happen here. Those flashmob attacks are nothing compared to this. Got to have a reason for that “Civilian Defense Force” Don’t ya know.
Hope You got that armegeddon garden planted Bardolf.
Green You dolt. There will be no riots and things will be just fine. Bams will be reelected in a landslide and take tare of everything. Stop it with the doom and gloom…..Thomas
disgusted…then you probably don’t want to watch this heartless robbery::
Can’t critisize em though. The robber is obviously repressed by the establishment. A sufferer of racial discrimination. It was his duty as a human piece of garbage to get his revenge.
Reminds me of an all powerful overreaching government.
“Helps” you up then will steal your property and liberty.
Many time Mr Noonan [by way of your silence when commenters chose to express their desires here] you have given the impression that if the American Right stood together and “rose up against the tyranny of the Left” that a clear sign of Liberal oppression would be the use of the military against civilians. Now in Great Britain you clearly would delight in the use of the British Army against its own people.
Can you clarify for Us just who has the right to riot and who does not?

Have you ever heard of “peaceful assembly”? Those would be the people that have the right to assemble and protest. Groups that set fire to buildings and bus’s – not so much.
Thanks for asking
cluster, maybe you could clarify why so many “citizens” appeared at Tea Party rallys and town hall meetings last summer with guns? Peaceful assembly? Then why the show of arms?
Now in Great Britain you clearly would delight in the use of the British Army against its own people.
so you are ok with Britain’s “OWN PEOPLE” looting, burning, destroying other hard working citizens lively hood property and life?
This is no different than a group holding up a bank, which they get shot for doing.
I say lock n load fix bayonets and stop this madness and mayhem in it’s tracks.
When did I say use the army? One person pointed out yesterday that Britain’s real problem in getting control of the riots is the fact that Britain lacks Korean immigrants armed with AR-15’s…that is what played a role in controlling the LA riots back when. People have a right to defend themselves, but the Brit’s resigned that right…they disarmed themselves. Whole groups of British are being mugged…mass robberies of people who cannot and will not defend themselves.
That is the death of Britain…they are sheep. The spirit of Nelson and Churchill no longer exists.
UPDATE: I’ve heard more than one story of Turks turning vigilante to defend homes and businesses. These Turks still have a will to live…the native Brits, don’t. Period. End of story. End of nation.
By the way, bubble-head computer, I am not Mark Noonan, as your sick site has ASSerted a few times before.
I am a guest blogger and not a Mark Noonan alias. I thought your “investigative” journalists were better than that.
Imagine if England was a nation of 49 million people with 36 million handguns this WOULD be “Armageddon. ” But of course the Right in America wants this to blow up more so they can foam up and fundraise. I wonder why Sarah Palin hasn’t commented yet?
You guys are so funny. Do you even make any sense to yourself?
It is a good thing that Brits do not have access to guns, that could create a real problem, as the fires that were set is just an expression of frustration right?. Who knew that gun control eliminated the existence of guns?
Well thier laws did take the guns out of the hands of honest citizens. So the law worked as intended.
The right to riot? Glad our founding fathers did not take up debate on that one.
it is a race war in england just like O-chimpy wants to bring here.
flash mobs are no coincidence, they are planned orchestrated events by the left and dumbed down innercity drones with average 85 or less IQ’s.
when Sarah speaks we will listen.
so they can foam up and fundraise.
Ohio Orrin…is dat U????
“Imagine if England was a nation of 49 million people with 36 million handguns this WOULD be “Armageddon. ””
Ahhhh, a country with fewer rioters. Armageddon is already there with racist mobs terrorizing non-minorities in the streets.
Go back to the fork drone.
What did you guys do? Your one commenter seems to have disappeared at the pitchfork. Did you ban him/her/it?
why are you posting from the firthy rag filled with demented loons the pitchfork at the bottom of threads?
free advertising for these nutcases.
I think the trackback/pingbacks are automatic when someone links like that. I am not positive about this. I think it is a wordpress feature, not The Blog owner doing it.
I was wondering didnt think Mark or Matt would post them.
Neo are these the people you were referring to when say say “forkers”? I checked out thier site, just for giggles mind you. I was not impressed.
their site was taken down a few years ago for pornography,
they think they are dead and living in hell.
one thinks she was killed in the American civil war.
lil freddy schwartzputz is a foul mouthed NY wieneresque little loon who was banned here long ago.
they get NO traffic so they TROLL here.
Hell has an isp now? Who would of thunk it? 🙂 The internet is everwhere.
I wonder if the rioters over there in the UK bought carbon credits? All those burning buildings must be bad for the enviroment somehow. Hate to think these hooligans did not forsee this. owl bore willed be peeved with them.
je$$e n Al en route to speak on the british raaaacism in briton that caused these riots.
Fun and games in Britian. Another resulp of a liberal progressive utopia.
“Another resulp of a liberal progressive utopia.”
Resulp…what the heck is that? Obviously I meant ….result.
That is a good one even for me… 🙂
maybe king went on vacation to Britain…….
Not a race war gentlemen but a class war.
Try again Schwartz, video I have seen in the beginnings of the riot were groups of masked BLACK males.
As the riots progressed, then other “minorities” joined in.
It is a race war using class as an excuse.
Wow, AGAIN, it must be a slow day at the pitchfork – zero responses to their usual drivel. What responses they do get (if any) are pats on the back from other “demons”.
A wave of violence and looting raged across London, as authorities struggled to contain the country’s worst unrest since race riots set the capital ablaze in the 1980s.Some 450 arrests have been made.
flash mobs, beatings, looting, robbing…….faracan warned us that will be coming here.
I’m going to say what the real problem is and 9 out of 10 of you are going to scoff. That’s OK, because it has to sink in….like it did with me.
The problem is the elephant in the room that nobody will talk about. It is (evil) jewish zionism that controls essentially every government on this planet. The USSR was run by zionist jews (Trotsky, Lenin, etc). Guns are an impediment to the eventual rule by God’s “chose” people.
Go ahead and balk. I did until I did research on it. 🙂
