The Counterjihad Calendar: September

Stop the Sharia Clock!

The month of September in the Counterjihad Calendar is represented by the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Britain may be the most thoroughly dhimmified country in the West. The UK is riddled through with soft PC totalitarianism, from the Civil Service through the police to the schools and universities. From a legal standpoint, it is much riskier in Britain today to declare that one dislikes Muslims than it is to burgle a house.

There are plenty of famous buildings to choose from for Greatly Islamised Britain — St. Paul’s, Westminster Abbey, Stonehenge, etc. — but I have chosen the tower of Big Ben at Westminster as the iconic British monument for the calendar. The clock in the tower was just too good to pass up (click for a larger image):


Thanks to Gaia and Aeneas for help in compiling this list of British Counterjihad websites for the calendar:

I still could use some URLs for the remaining countries (The Netherlands, Australia, and Spain). My goal is to fill up each sidebar with Counterjihad sites.

Once again, the twelve countries I will be using for the 2008 calendar are:

  • France
  • Denmark
  • Germany
  • India
  • Sweden
  • Italy
  • The U.S.A.
  • Greece
  • Britain
  • The Netherlands
  • Australia
  • Spain

For each country involved, I invite readers to post suggested Counterjihad links in the comments, or send them via email. All except for the USA, that is, which is completely filled up.

I’m still on track to finish the 2008 Counterjihad Calendar before the end of this month, and then make it available at our Café Press site.

Next up on the calendar is the Netherlands, for the month of October.

Genoeg is genoeg!

  1. The best written constitution in the world is meaningless if it’s ignored. We have a set of constitutional documents that guarantee everything your constitution does and quite a bit more, but they’ve been ignored since the late 40s, when powers that were taken on by parliament in war-time were not given up again in the peace by the newly elected labour government.

    The soviet union had seven constitutions, at least one of which was acknowledged as being one of the most succinct and best written in the world. If it had actually been respected and followed the soviet union would have been a free nation. It wasn’t.

    My point is that a constitution only goes so far, and it needs the knowledge and understanding of the people to preserve it in the face of a rapacious political class. What we’re reaping is the result of 60 years of deceit by our political class, who have slowly but surely abrogated every article of the parliamentary bill of rights and the acts of union, and slowly but surely educated knowledge about them out of the populace. We have constitutional documents. We have a guarnateed right to freedom of speech, a right to bear arms and a right to travel at will within the borders of this nation without molestation by agents of the monarch, but they are ignored by the political class and the people don’t know about them, thanks to 60 years of “progressive” education. More, in fact, as this particular thrust was started following the revolution in russia. The inter-war generation were one of teh first to not be properly tought about the bill of rights and the foundation of parliament.

    The US government under its current leadership is no better, what with the democrats chipping away at various amendments they don’t like and legislating around the rest, whilst spreading lies and mistruths about the meaning and consequence of a constitution.

    You’re trying to teach the wrong lesson. We’re an example of what happens when you start socially engineering a generation of ignorance. Your constitution is probably going to be worthless in the face of the educational nightmare your leaders have created.

    How can the Brits have been so easily brainwashed into ceding their rights?

    Don’t bet on the U.S. Second Amendment ever being lost in the face of any pandering political pimps.

    And as long as it stands, the rest stand.

    There are far too many hunting skeptics in America who like fresh deermeat, duck, and quail.

    The U.S. leadership is weak, but hardly anything like what you are suspecting.

    I never knew any British written code of “rights” included free speech by “constitutional” document. I thought most of the U.K. “constitution” was scattered in many uncodified sources, and that Parliament could over-rule them whenever they had the power?

    In the U.S. it is very hard to bring about changes to the Constitution or its Amendments, for good reason.

    And we like to mock those who would restrict any of our inherent (“endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable…”) rights too much (from Tom Paine to Lenny Bruce) to ever lose them as long as we have the mouth (1st Amendment) and teeth (2nd Amendment) to resist.

  3. Nope. The acts of union and the acts of settlement trace their provenence to magna carta and the bill of rights. The bill of rights was a treaty signed between the people and the king, granting the king certain privileges and placing him on the same level as any other subject before the law, in which the exchange was that parliament took over all the powers of the monarch. The right to free association, free speech and the right to bear arms are all enshrined in that document, and it cannot be legally overriden by an act of parliament because all of parliament’s rights to govern are granted by the bill of rights. If it were to abrogate it, parliament would remove its own legal basis to exist.

    Of coure it has been abrogated many times. Parliament has no legal standing to govern, but nobody knows this because of the deliberate effort to reduce and remove the English constitutional documents from the publuic consciousness.

    The acts of settlement granted universal suffrage and re-affirmed the right to travel and associate, taking their cue from magna carta, which guaranteed the “ancient liberties” of common law and the freedom of the individual. The Acts of Union defined the nature of the United Kingdon and its territories, and affirmed the same rights for Scotland and Ireland that were granted to the English in the bill of rights.

    You ask how easy it is to hide something from people? The answer is simple: you don’t tell them about it. You start to twist the meaning of words that would be used to tell them about it. Two generations is all it took to destroy freedom in this country. Two generations is all it takes to destroy freedom in any country.

    Of course there are people who remember these things, and try to tell others about it, but they’re called crazy or ignored by the media and the government whilst the people, utterly in the thrall of that media and the “progressive” government thanks to a terrible education and a constant repetition of the idea that the state is everything, mindlessly absorb whatever they’re told.

    In the post-war period we were promised peace and security by the new labour government, who kept rationing and media control in place and started their social programs the minute they were elected. They wanted to bring about a socialist revolution and they bankrupted the country in the process. The rot was set then. The generation that was born in the 40s and 50s was the first that wasn’t taought about the constitutional arrangements of this country. They weren’t taught how the countryw as governed. They were taught in new progressive ways. The next generation was taught even less.

    That’s how easy it is.

    Now, you might say now that your second amendment won’t disappear, but I see gun control advocates making slow but steady progress toward their goals all the time. Your constitution is robust, but it is only as powerful as those willing to defend it and, given the state of your educational system these days, I would be very surprised if it was still known about two generations hence.

  4. Having said that, I don’t doubt that your countrymen are more likely to defend their rights than mine were. It’s hard to fight when you’ve lost two generations to war.
