Could be worse

swans

Ah, there they are. We hadn’t seen the swan fambly for a while, but here they are Sunday. Sorry about the distracting vegetation, but it’s only because Unkle B has a fancy-pants camera that he got any pictures at all: he had to raise it over his head and tilt the backscreen down so he could see what he was aiming at.

I know what you’re thinking; there were nine. Maybe there still are; it was awfully hard to count without being able to see beaks. But there are eight for sure, and that’s pretty good around here.

Foxes. Badgers. Stoats. That one stinking mink.

My cousin called me from the States tonight to ask what the heck is going on over here. I suppose it’s being reported that gangs of Hitler youth are roaming the streets beating up brown people. Or something. That’s The Narrative and they’re sticking to it — most of the papers, the pundits, even the police.

Whether there’s been a real rise in racial conflicts, I have no idea. They say calls to the police abuse hotlines are way up, but most of the actual reports seem to be Rudeness in the First Degree or Really Hurtful T-Shirt Slogans.

Exit question: if your thesis is that most English people find it terribly, terribly hard to get along with non-English people, is by-god we’re going to force them to really the most workable long-term solution?

Trump + BREXIT has made internet people really touchy.
Of course, the news media loves the drama.

There were at least 20 death threats by Remainiacs directed towards Farage on twitter yesterday. They’ve lost their minds.

But, our news about the UK is that there has been an outbreak against Polish immigrants. They show some graffiti, then the PM talking about more money fight the racists. Followed by Corbin saying its illegal and contrary to “Labour Ideals”. Then the Polish Amb. saying he hopes its isolated.

Didn’t know about the youths beating Brown people too. Plus the protests over Brexit demanding a do-over. Does anyone get any sleep over there?

So why is it that all these leftist idiots are so hostile to the oppressed Indigenous People of the UK?
.
They would never go around badmouthing Native Americans like they’re doing with the White Folk who are having a problem with a cultural invasion of their ancestral lands.
And that’s the truth of the matter, on both sides of the pond… It’s not racial… it’s cultural. When more and more of your new neighbors not only don’t share your values, but are contemptuous of you, you are right to be concerned.

Someone from Ol’ Blighty made a very negative comment one one of my facebook posts yesterday, and so far none of my English friends have stepped in to correct him. I hope someone does!

I’m just a clueless yank!

The UK media (notably the BBC) are doing everything they can to stir up trouble. Every news broadcast seems to consist of nothing but doom and gloom stories about the economy (despite the fact that both shares and the pound have recovered from the profit taking of a few days ago).

Similarly, the nonsense about ‘racist’ attacks is almost entirely concocted – the police have confirmed this but still the MSM’s narrative rolls on like a juggernaut.

Having seen how the UK’s MSM distorts British views of America to something beyond all recognition, it’s depressing to see that the reverse is also true.

This cultural Marxist domination of our media really has to controlled. Sooner of later these imbeciles are going to start a war.

Glad to see so many of the cygnets surviving; nature does just keep on keeping on, eh?

I look at this picture and this popped into my head: I’m Cygnet number 8 I am. CYGNET no 8 I am I am….
