These people are scum. They are spoiled, stupid, treasonous scum. They live in a land of safety, stability and freedom, provided by the system of constitutional monarchy at the top of which is the Queen and then use the very freedom that system provides to spew their juvenile hatred against Her Majesty knowing full well that they don’t have to worry about being dragged off to the Tower for doing it. And they have the nerve, the temerity, the unmitigated gall to actually frame their silly little cry baby moaning in terms of the people “standing up for democracy all over the world”, meaning places like Tunisia, Libya, Egypt and Syria. Places where people have had no voice whatsoever in their government, no freedom of speech or assembly and where governments have butchered people in the streets for opposing them. How dare they! How dare they compare themselves to people who have actually risked their lives and actually sacrificed their lives (whether you agree with them or not) for the cause they believe in. These members of the spoiled brat brigade in Britain risk nothing to moan and groan and complain about the very system that protects them and gives them the right to moan, groan and whine. And that INFURIATES me!
Another one that really bugs me is the expense of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations at a time of “austerity” and economic crisis for Great Britain. Let me remind all of these “oppressed” republicans in the United Kingdom that right here in the good old republican United States of America, at our last Presidential inauguration, which was held at the height of the economic crisis, American taxpayers paid for a ceremony and celebrations that cost hundreds of millions of dollars. And these were hardly festivities that any person could enjoy considering that the tickets for standing room at the back of the mall (the cheap “seats”) were nearly $2,000 each and they went up drastically from there. Yet, any complaints that it was too expensive for a time of economic crisis were quickly hushed up because the inauguration of Barack Obama (peace be upon him) as the first Black President was an “historic moment” for the United States. Okay, well, a Diamond Jubilee is a pretty darn “historic moment” too I would say considering that in the hundreds of years the British monarchy has existed this is only the second time such a milestone has been achieved. I would, as an American citizen, willingly and cheerfully trade the cost of the British monarchy for the cost of our President, First Family and ex-Presidents any day of the week. Just let me know whiners.
Someone, I am sure, will be saying, ‘yeah, well, what else is new’ or ‘doesn’t surprise you does it’ or ‘shouldn’t you be used to this sort of thing’ and all the rest. Well, no, I’m not surprised but I am no less infuriated just because I have come to expect it. I’m not used to it and I resent that I or anyone else should have to get used to it. Again, I challenge anyone to go to any republic in the world on some extremely historic, special, national celebration and find the media giving the same sort of coverage to monarchists. It doesn’t exist, it doesn’t happen and everyone knows it. These cretins have not a leg to stand on, in my book they are traitors pure and simple and so are their willing abettors at the BBC. I will never learn to accept it and as long as they continue doing it I will continue to be a very, very … Mad Monarchist.
