Dragon-Slayer Banished [Dan Collins]

Apparently, Muslims are great defenders of dragons.  Who knew that they were acting in concert with PETA? 

In 2006 Church of England officials contemplated giving Saint George the boot from his perch as Patron Saint of England because he was too offensive for modern day Muslims.

Now, British officials have cancelled an annual St. George’s Day Parade in Bradford in fear that Muslims will riot. Many of the youngsters had already made flags of St George to carry in the parade on April 23, which was designed to boost community cohesion.
Oh well.

Not exactly Santiago Matamoros, but whatever.  I have a recommendation for a replacement. (h/t Reynolds)

  1. Dhimmi are not allowed to celebrate their faith in public.

  2. Here’s a more fitting knight for Labourite Britain.

  3. Could somebody tell The Church of England that their very existence offends Muslims?

  4. Entirely redundant, Alpie, ++Rowan Williams is already capitulating as fast as he can.

  5. He’s also woefully short on limericks.

  6. Rather than St. George, maybe they should switch to Sir Robin?

  7. George! There’s a big dragon what’s destroying the village with wrathful firey roaryness and also the women are scared!

    Why can’t I just eat my waffle?

  8. Ha, MLD! Beat you to the punch.

  9. They will have to suffer a thousand years of dhimmitude in pennance for the crimes of outlawing the slave trade and bringing civilization to the far corners of the world. No need to damn them. They’ve damned themselves, damn them.

  10. “Democratic civilisation, the French philosopher Jean-Franois Revel observed, is the first in history to blame itself because another power is trying to destroy it.

  11. Appeasement means never having to say you’re sorry

  12. YOU FILTHY INFIDEL MOTHER FUCKERS WILL PAY FOR YOUR INFIDELITY THE STREETS WILL FLOW WITH THE BLOOD OF THE NON-BELIEVERS AND THE WRATH OF THE PEDOPHILIC MOHAMMED WILL BE UPON YOU IN SHA’ALLAH NOW I MUST GO AND BANG A SCIMTAR ON MY FOREHEAD TO SHOW THE PASSION AND FERVOR OF MY BELIEFS THEN I MUST GO FIND A COUPLE SHORT BUS KIDS THAT ARE WILLING TO LET ME BLOW THEM UP IN AN ISRAELI COFFEE SHOP OR BUS FOR THE GOOD OF ALLAH

  13. That movie’s about Al Gore, you know, Jeff.

  14. And you, nishi–the all-caps doesn’t hide you as well as you think.

  15. Well, being perpetually sorry means never having to call it appeasement.

    Quod Erat Demostratum. *BURP*

  16. DAN COLLINS WILL BE TOWARDS THE FRONT OF THE LINE AS HE IS AN INFIDELEOUS INFIDEL OF THE HIGHEST ORDER NISHI IS A GOOD AND PRACTICING MYSTICAL MULSLIM THAT WILL BE SPARED MY WRATH

  17. ALL OF YOU HALF BROWN INFIDELS THAT THINK THEY ARE SMARTER THAN US BY USING FANCY LATIN WORDS WILL FEEL THE WRATH OF ALLAH PEACE BE UPON HIM AS WELL YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED

  18. Ali McGraw makes me all tingly. Maybe she should be the US patron saint.

    I mean, no offense to the bald eagle, but he don’t even make my junk twitch.

  19. This dude’s corpse must be spinning something fierce.

  20. That was a good fight.

  21. MILTON! thou should’st be living at this hour:
    England hath need of thee: she is a fen
    Of stagnant waters: altar, sword, and pen,
    Fireside, the heroic wealth of hall and bower,
    Have forfeited their ancient English dower
    Of inward happiness. We are selfish men;
    Oh! raise us up, return to us again;
    And give us manners, virtue, freedom, power.
    Thy soul was like a Star, and dwelt apart:
    Thou hadst a voice whose sound was like the sea: 10
    Pure as the naked heavens, majestic, free,
    So didst thou travel on life’s common way,
    In cheerful godliness; and yet thy heart
    The lowliest duties on herself did lay.

    - William Wordsworth

  22. This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle,
    This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
    This other Eden, demi-paradise,
    This fortress built by Nature for herself
    Against infection and the hand of war,
    This happy breed of men, this little world,
    This precious stone set in the silver sea,
    Which serves it in the office of a wall
    Or as a moat defensive to a house,
    Against the envy of less happier lands,–
    This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this…Aw, fuck it.

  23. Wait… appeasement means ALWAYS having to say you’re sorry.

    At least until you convert or they just burn down your house with you inside.

    A really irritating conversation I had started like this:

    Vaguely Leftist Dork: “Pretty much everybody in the Middle East is Muslim, right?”

    Me: “Noticed that, did you?”

    Vaguely Leftist Dork: (pause) “Why do you suppose that is?”

    It went downhill from there. A lot of people are imagining having that conversation about Europe in the future.

    Multiculturalism is pretty much insane, at least as practiced. Seems like multiculturalism is to culture as pacifism is to war.

  24. Oh. There was this raving barking mad obnoxious nun-person on NPR the other day what said “[The Pope] did open a Muslim dialogue. He is maintaining a contact with the Jewish community. There isn’t any other choice. This is a totally pluralistic society… The fact of the matter is there is no place on earth now that can claim any kind of theocratic culture. We live in a pluralistic world, both spiritually, institutionally, politically, and socially, and we have got to learn to live together if our religions have any real authenticity to them at all.” And I wanted to drop her nun ass off in Mecca with a guidebook and a camera so she could get a feel for and document all that for real authenticity. Pluralistic world my ass. Stupid nun.

  25. But hey! They’re moderate muslims!

  26. From what I have heard, read or seen. To the muslims anybody that isn’t muslim offends them. It is time for the “leaders” of the infedels to have some back bone and stick with the truth. They are letting their citizens and countries down.
    The muslim faith controls by fear and domination. Why would any woman want to be a muslim? They have nothing, they are treated sub-humanly. They are slaves in a religeon dominated by men who have extreme doubts of their masculinity. Why else would they fear giving their women any freedom.
    I once read something writtn by an American female muslim. She was saying that she didn’t have any problem wearing a burca or veil and didn’t no why other women did. She was talking from the freedom she has in America. If she was living in the middle east and elsewhere and tried to take it off, she would be stoned to death, tortured or mutilated.
