Random Blasts from the Past - October 4, 2005

Got Pigs?

One of the reasons I don't like to do politics much here is because other people do it so much better than I. It's not really my main thing. But as was pointed out to me by a good Polish (Traditional) Catholic theology professor, man is a political animal and one cannot talk intelligibly about him without politics.

Particularly not now that religion and politics are veering back towards each other so quickly and so violently.

Kathy put this up a couple of days ago. (A follow-up for this.)

I have seen the pig thing making the rounds and I think I understand why. Piglet is really one of those ancient race-memories for the Western (OK, English) world. He's one of those inviolable icons, violations of which goes to the bottom of the Cold/Warm War we are again fighting with our ancient foe.

To ban Piglet in Britain is to many minds, an admission of unconditional surrender. Once Piglet is gone, England is gone, and the West will follow. The invasion, moreover, was not by physical invasion - the Channel remains the unbreached barricade - it was done when the leftist traitors lowered the drawbridge and invited the enemy inside in the name of "tolerance". Is this going to be the turning point? Are the outraged Enlglish going to rise up in defence of their culture?

I'm taking bets.

Actually I'm of the mind that the Muslim problem, coming as it did at the crisis point in the cultural collapse of Westernesse, is one of the saving acts of God. It is forcing us to go back to defining what is and is not us, so we can make a strong showing against them. It is merely the final inevitable outcome of the self-hatred of the West, it is being pointed out elsewhere and everywhere, if the West has lost confidence in the reasons for its existence, which it seems to have done, why should not the ancient enemy rise up and take the opportunity? Those who remain who still know why the West was good, will fight. Those who want to appease will face what appeasers have always faced.

Perhaps an awkward way of putting it, but, as usual, Steyn does it better.

Alas, the United Kingdom's descent into dhimmitude is beyond parody. Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council (Tory-controlled) has now announced that, following a complaint by a Muslim employee, all work pictures and knick-knacks of novelty pigs and "pig-related items" will be banned. Among the verboten items is one employee's box of tissues, because it features a representation of Winnie the Pooh and Piglet.

I do agree though that the Disney version of Piglet, that horrid imposter, needs to be banned. All his images ought to be collected as were the works of the heretics of old and burned in the public square with plenty of holy water on hand to banish his foul ghost.

The Free Pigia movement is sweeping the bloggers (for the next five minutes)
