“Being British, I AM PROUD OF MY COUNTRY AND ITS PEOPLES, proud to serve under the Union Jack AND REGARD IT AS AN ENGLISHMAN’S PRIVILEGE TO FIGHT FOR ALL THOSE THINGS THAT MAKE LIFE WORTH LIVING: FREEDOM, HONOUR AND FAIR PLAY.” (The Daily Express - 27 August 2009)Bill made the ultimate sacrifice.
His plane was shot down during the conflict.
Leo McKinstry commented thus on the patriotic statement above:
“His words beautifully encapsulate the spirit of patriotism that galvanised the British people during the Second World War. It was the same deep love of our island home which inspired the soaring rhetoric of Winston Churchill, drove men to fight on the beaches of Normandy and the deserts of north Africa, compelled exhausted bomber crews to fly on missions for night after night over Germany, and enabled the British public to survive the Blitz so stoically.Who is at war with the British people now, ladies and gentlemen?
PATRIOTISM IS ONE OF MAN-KIND’S MOST NOBLE IDEALS, an extension of THE NATURAL LOYALTY WE FEEL TO OUR FAMILIES, FRIENDS AND NEIGHBOURHOOD. In its highest form, it requires us TO LAY DOWN OUR LIVES TO PROTECT OTHERS, just as a devoted husband might risk all to defend his wife or children.
But IN OUR MODERN AGE, PATRIOTISM IS DESPISED RATHER THAN ADMIRED. FOR THE MARXIST IDEOLOGUES WHO NOW RUN BRITAIN, LOVE OF COUNTRY IS A VICE, NOT A VIRTUE. As a result we are now encouraged to learn entirely the wrong lessons from the Second World War. Instead of being presented as a magnificent defence of our native land against a savage aggressor, THE CONFLICT IS NOW PORTRAYED AS A TRIUMPH FOR THE FORCES OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS AGAINST RIGHT-WING EXTREMISM.
In this warped narrative the Second World War has been transformed into a gigantic crusade against xenophobia, while our soldiers, sailors and airmen are regarded as armed outreach workers in a vast anti- racism project. It is a bizarre paradox of our times that, THANKS TO THE PREDOMINANCE OF MULTI-CULTURAL DOGMA, THE PATRIOTIC INSTINCT THAT LED TO NATIONAL SALVATION IN 1945 IS NOW TREATED AS A THOUGHT CRIME.
THE SENSE OF UNIFYING NATIONAL IDENTITY THAT ONCE MOTIVATED MILLIONS OF BRITONS TO DEFEND THEIR HOMELAND IS HELD TO BE SUSPECT BY A POLITICAL ELITE OBSESSED WITH CULTURAL DIVERSITY. WE ARE TOLD THAT OPPOSITION TO MASS IMMIGRATION IS THE EQUIVALENT OF SIDING WITH THE NAZIS...
It is impossible to imagine the Britain of 2009 enjoying the same sense of patriotic cohesion that existed in 1940 if our very existence came under threat. IN OFFICIAL CIRCLES, THE CONCEPT OF BRITISHNESS IS A SOURCE OF EMBARRASSMENT AND SHAME. WE ARE A NATION WHOSE SOVEREIGNTY HAS BEEN SURRENDERED TO BRUSSELS AND WHOSE UNITY HAS BEEN DESTROYED BY THE COLLAPSE OF OUR BORDERS.
The Second World War has been dragooned into service by the political zealots as a battering ram against our national identity. The Government’s own educational quango, the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority, boasts that HISTORY TEACHING SHOULD BE A TOOL FOR ‘VALUING DIVERSITY AND CHALLENGING RACISM’ BY GAINING INSIGHTS ‘INTO ISSUES AROUND HUMAN RIGHTS, EQUALITY AND MIGRATION.’
EVERY MUSEUM RELATED TO THE SECOND WORLD WAR FOCUSES OBSESSIVELY ON THE ROLE OF ETHNIC MINORITIES IN THE CONFLICT, EVERY EU BUREAUCRAT STRESSES THE IMPORTANCE OF THE EUROPEAN INTEGRATION AS A MEANS OF OVERCOMING DANGEROUS NATIONALIST SENTIMENTS…
The supreme irony is that we fought in 1940 to defend our national independence from German aggression, yet almost 70 years later we are now subsumed within a German-dominated continental bureaucracy.
I recently spoke to a D-Day veteran from the West Midlands. With anger and regret, he told me that HE DID NOT FIGHT IN ORDER TO END UP AS AN ALIEN IN HIS OWN COUNTRY. Even more insulting, he said, was BEING TOLD BY POLITICIANS THAT THE DESTRUCTION OF HIS SOCIETY WAS THE IDEAL FOR WHICH HE HAD GONE INTO BATTLE.”
Whose side would Bill Millington be on now, do you reckon? Would he be thinking, like the D-Day veteran from the West Midlands, that he had fought so selflessly just 'to end up an alien in his own country?' Would he too be insulted by those politicians who assured the nation that 'the destruction his society was the ideal for which he had gone into battle?'
I think we all know the answers to these question, with exception perhaps of the dumbed-down and the drugged up. Ever wondered why the bad guys drugged up and dumbed us down? Oh, yes, ladies and gentlemen, THEY are at war with us alright. There aren't very many who don't know this now.
Trouble is, where once the Bill Millingtons were in the majority, nowadays they're thin on the ground. That's why precious little gets said.
And nothing gets done.
