Soap Box (Dunc)

Michelle Malkin crops up in the latest post on the excellent “Chase Me Ladies I’m in the Cavalary” blog.

She’s been voicing her displeasure on her blog about anti-war protesters shitting on an American flag and then burning it.

After looking at the books she’s written I doubt she’ll be getting an invite from Tony Benn to nip around for tea and muffins anytime soon –

  • “Unhinged – Exposing Liberals Gone Mad”
  • “In Defense of Internment – The Case for Racial Profiling in WW2 and the War on Terror”
  • “Invasion – How America Still Welcomes Terrorists, Criminals, and Other Foreign Menaces to Our Shores”

I like the way the wording for the title of her”Invasion” book infers that terrorists and criminals in the US are foreign.

On a broadly related topic there was an excellent series on BBC2 a year or so ago called “The Power of Nightmares”. You can download and watch it by following this LINK.

I’ve not usually got the patience to sit through political documentaries but this is well worth the watch.

    Probs with comments on this one Dunc???

    I went in and added this because the mo fo kept rejecting it.

    Watch The Century of the self and The Trap as well, by the same guy, Adam Curtis.

    The first one is about psycological manipulation of the masses by bif buisness and govenment and the other is about the modern definition of ‘freedom’.

    I that the Power of Nightmares has the balls to say that Al Quida (Spelling?) are a complete fabrication. A boogy man for the modern age. There are few objective documentarys out there. Mostly just cheerleading the troops and scaring middle England/America. It just rams home just what utter nonsense this ‘war on terror’ really is.
