At times like this, we must remain vigilant against Islamophobia.

But that’s no fun!

When I heard about the Glasgow attack, my first inclination is that it was probably an extremist grandmother from…Wales !

Because, hey, 1000s of people dedicated to killing you is a minor thing…or maybe not.

Let’s not jump to rash conclusions people.
This very well could have been the Irish-according to those well-regarded teror analysts at the Beeb-or the Loch Ness Monster.
WE JUST DON’T KNOW!

“This very well could have been the Irish-according to those well-regarded teror analysts at the Beeb-or the Loch Ness Monster.”
What?
Not that anyone ever assumed it was the Irish, but the IRA never targeted Scotland.
You may learn a bit more about the UK if you were to visit. However, the only certainty about this act of terror is that the Scottish tourist industry will be hit because even more Americans will now be too shit scared to visit (including many keyboard warriors I imagine). A minor victory for those that carried this out. Would love to be proved wrong.

Spin, spin, spin…
Like a whirling dervish.

Seriously though, this politically correct, faux multi-cult bullcrap needs to end.
Tony Blair and his successor can issue all the feel-good love-a-Muslim claptrap they want, but the people who are being targeted for extermination by these turban-clad lunatics aren’t that stupid.
Eventually, the feckless do-nothings who’ve invited all of these geiteneuckers to turn Great Britain into their host organism will have some explaining to do.

What the fuck are you on about ?
Are you an expert on Scottish race relations ?
Maybe you could learn more if you feel brave enough to cross the Atlantic.

Wait. Are you arguing that the Brits and Scots being target for extermination by turbin clad lunatics are that stupid?
Okay. Since you are scottish, you would know. hahaha.

Listen you imperious little asshole, I don’t need to be lectured to by some pompous jackass who wouldn’t recognize a member of Hezbollah if he was standing outside your front door with a copy of Milestones and a Kalashnikov.
I wasn’t commenting upon “race relations” within Scotland, or anything having to do with race, or the Scottish tourism board, you ignorant twit.
I was explaining what provoked this phenomenon, which has nothing to do with British policy within The Quartet, or the UK’s interventions in Afghanistan or Iraq, or any other temporal explanation that feckless dhimmis want to use as a justification for appeasing these savages.
If you’d withdraw your head from your rectum and look around, then perhaps you’d have a better grasp of this discussion.

Urbane McMeercat,
I don’t know how you could have misinterpreted Gerard’s initial remarks about the Irish/the Loch Ness Monster to be anything other than tongue-in-cheek.
And what is all this “if you’re man enough to cross the Atlantic” stuff all about ?

Posted by: BadBoyInASuit at July 2, 2007 at 9:31 pm

“Listen you imperious little asshole, I don’t need to be lectured to by some pompous jackass who wouldn’t recognize a member of Hezbollah if he was standing outside your front door with a copy of Milestones and a Kalashnikov.”
Wow, it’s like Oscar Wilde with tourettes ! Does your mother know you swear ?
Well travelled too. You’re right though, I wouldn’t recognise a member of Hezbollah.
Mainly because they all seem to cover their faces in the photo’s.
“I wasn’t commenting upon “race relations” within Scotland,”
“Eventually, the feckless do-nothings who’ve invited all of these geiteneuckers to turn Great Britain into their host organism will have some explaining to do.”
Seems like a comment on it to me.
“or anything having to do with race, or the Scottish tourism board, you ignorant twit.”
That’s a comedown from “imperious little asshole”.
Twit is almost good mannered in comparison.
I know that you weren’t commenting on tourism – that was me.
“I was explaining what provoked this phenomenon, which has nothing to do with British policy within The Quartet, or the UK’s interventions in Afghanistan or Iraq, or any other temporal explanation that feckless dhimmis want to use as a justification for appeasing these savages. ”
Deary me. Who was saying that ? Don’t think that I did.
Anyway, I can see that you are getting angry. By describing me as little I assume that you are quite a big hard man – you certianly do type a mean assed sentence. I wouldn’t want to provoke you to violence.
BBIAS
“And what is all this “if you’re man enough to cross the Atlantic” stuff all about ?”
Just trying to goad some people into tourism.
It is a fact that after the 7/7 attacks American tourism to the UK fell.
To be honest though, in comparison to other destinations closer to your home (not to mention the strong pound), fear of attack should rate pretty low in reasons not to vist.

Wooooooooooft !

Urbane McMeercat,
Our friend Gerard must have really struck a nerve with you, if you’re still trying to pick a fight.

Posted by: BadBoyInASuit at July 3, 2007 at 1:01 pm

If Urbane McMeercat is the type of person people will have to deal with if they visit Scotland, forget it! Insulting people and talking out of your ass is not the way to say, Please come to Scotland. Jeesh!

Have some (French) cheese with that whine!
What. A. Dweeb.

Please come to Scotland

If I want drunken misers I’ll stick with my family!
;-)

Posted by: Radical Redneck at July 3, 2007 at 2:02 pm

Redneck’s idea of “sticking with” his family means scewing them, and is broad-minded enough to include the males and pets as well. SOOOO-EY, you sure got a purty mouth!

Posted by: bryan at July 14, 2007 at 8:53 am

Screwing, that is. Any orifice will do.
