The League or Extra Ordinary Doofuses
Like this, but with keyboards and modems
There is a dark cloud on the horizon and it's not the kind of dark cloud that brings morning rain with possible showers in the afternoon before clearing and shaping up for a beautiful weekend with clear skies and highs in the sixties. No, this dark cloud is the cloud of rising Islamofascism, or maybe it's a swarm of Islamofascist locusts that just lookS like a cloud in the distance; it's kind of hard to tell. But whatever the cloud is made up of, it's probably really really bad.
And yet America and the rest of the white world that is incontiguous with North America is sleeping or perhaps just resting their eyes for a few minutes while this cloud (of either water particles or bugs, maybe both which would be worse because wet bugs can be pretty bitey) creeps ever closer. Who can save us? Who will step forward and defend us from the damp locusta migratoria of Allah?
Meet your saviors:
The Big Flaming Bird of Freedom
The Great Islamic Jihad is certain that Western Civilization is about to come to an end.Let me interrupt here and mention that Gates of Vienna is a blog run by a couple who refer to themselves as Baron Bodissey and Dymphna which leads me to believe that the blog is just something they do between running the mead and fried sugar booth at their local Ye Olde Renaissance Faire once a year. Sample home dialogue:
Islamic Fascism looks forward to the rule of the new Caliphate, in which the whole world will swear submission to Allah and bow five times a day towards Mecca. It aims to kill or enslave every person who will not accept its twisted vision of Islam. With the help of its allies among the world’s dictators and within our own media, it is confident that it will achieve its goal.
But even as this beast tears at our throats, a new defensive force is being born, a determination to preserve all that is good and right and true within the Western world. Even as we are abandoned by our leaders, by the sophists in our academies, and by the propagandists of our major media, ordinary people are connecting with one another, and are ready to stand up and defeat those who would destroy us.
Here in the 910 Group this force is symbolized by the Phoenix, reborn from the ashes of the World Trade Center in order to resist the onslaught of Islamofascism.
Synergy and synchronicity are at work here. The 910 Group was initiated in the comments on a Gates of Vienna post and is barely two months old. Yet it is growing incredibly rapidly, and is much larger than all of us.
"Damnation! Yet another missive from the Homeowners Association demanding we get rid of our moat. I will countenance their insolence no longer!" Anyway...where was I? Oh yeah, back to the synergy/sychronicity thingie:
"Woman! Another mead! The Steelers and Ravens joust in HD is anon. There's a good wench."
"Cursed paperboy! Under the Dodge Neon again. I'll have your head on a pike!"
We are an international movement, with members in India, the UK, New Zealand, Australia, Denmark, Norway, and Canada, as well as the U.S.A. We comprise a self-selected group of people who share common goals: to oppose Islamic Fascism wherever it threatens us, and to promote the emergence of liberty in all the dark corners of the planet where ordinary people are degraded and oppressed.I'm going to jump in here again and point out that there aren't too many groups in America who have taken their "rallying cry" from Rick Santorum outside of the North American Man Beagle Love Association, but I assume that they have different goals than the 910 Group--- or do they?
A new “network of networks” has formed under the 910 umbrella, and now another synchronicity has opened the door to a larger alliance, one that calls itself The Coalition to Preserve Civilization. The rallying cry for this new group is a speech by Senator Rick Santorum from October 30th, 2006. Sen. Santorum’s speech is entitled “The Gathering Storm of the 21st Century”, and is posted at To The Point News.
Sorry. Back to the Baron:
This message aligns perfectly with the aims of the 910 Group, and a new partnership has been launched. The Coalition to Preserve Civilization aims to combine the organizing and fund-raising expertise of the conservative movement with the high-tech networking skills of the 910 Group and its affiliated networks and bloggers.All lovely sentiments and we look forward to the 910 Group sallying forth to reclaim the Ottoman Empire in their cardboard armor, equipped with sharp pointy sticks and helmets made from five-gallon ice cream tubs stolen from the back of Baskin-Robbins:
The CPC has an ambitious goal: to resist and overthrow Islamic Fascist tyranny in all its forms through the efforts of our information networks.
The Berlin Wall fell and the Soviet Union collapsed because the United States and its democratic allies held fast to their goals and never lost faith in the eventual result.
This struggle will also be won.
Western Civilization will be preserved.
Liberty will be extended to people who long for it but have never known it.
All people have the right to speak freely, to choose their religious beliefs, and to be free of the threat of violence.
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,---oh wait. It's the Baron again:
Will stand a tip-toe when this day is nam'd,
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say 'To-morrow is Saint Crispian.'
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,
And say 'These wounds I had on Crispian's day.'
Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But he'll remember, with advantages,
What feats he did that day. Then shall our names,
Familiar in his mouth as household words
This is primarily an information war, fought via the television screens and computer networks across the entire globe. The enemy is very adept at it, and has a head start. But the Islamists lack our major advantages: originality, flexibility, technical innovation, and a tradition of free enquiry. These are the skills we will use to build our networks and destroy theirs.Oh. Okay. Because we will defeat the enemy with our mad kerning skillz and our home wireless networks. Our Mozilla is too strong for them.
Make no mistake: this is a civil war within the heart of the West, between those who would appease Islamic tyranny and those who want to eliminate it; between those who would censor themselves and restrict their own rights rather than steadfastly resist any encroachment on them; between those who believe in the values and heritage of the West and those who are ashamed of them.
We will be vilified by those who are still under the thrall of the legacy media. We will be required to overcome the stifling fog of Political Correctness and Multiculturalism that infuses every aspect of modern discourse, and would enervate those who seek to preserve our culture. We will be beset by enemies both within and without. Yet we will not waver in our task.
