The head of state of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Jamaica, Barbados, the Bahamas, Grenada, Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Tuvalu, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Belize, Antigua and Barbuda, and Saint Kitts and Nevis, kicks ass

11 Feb

Alfred E. Neuman looking on there, thinking, "What, me worry?"

 

Now that’s a Head of State!  (Like Putin…)

(BTW, Her Majesty actually served in WWII as an auto mechanic and truck driver.  I suppose that fact, plus this photo, are all more fodder for followers of nutbar conspiracy-theorist Lyndon LaRouche; oh well!)

    I’ve remember saying I have nothing against women as the heads of state… As long as they’re of monarchist stock. American women don’t tend to like that stance for some reason.

    The funny/sad thing is that Queen Elizabeth has a bigger pair that Obama. Obama creams his pants when he thinks about Middle Americans “clinging to” their guns and Bibles. Dumbass, he should have never been President of anything but Clowntown. I can’t wait till we kick this shit out of office only to be replaced by some Republican shit. Rick Santorum would be okay if only he cared about the Catholic and Orthodox Christenvolk of the Middle-East over the Jews and if he adhered to Thomas Aquinas’s Just war doctine. He ain’t no Pat Buchanan, but oh well.

    Indeed, there have been many great queens: Queen Elizabeth I, Queen Victoria, to name just two other English ones…

    You don’t think Romney is going to be chosen, ultimately? That the anybody-but-Romney forces will manage to rally around Santorum?

    Fuck Romney. Romney is an ultra-capitalist scoundrel. He’s better than that lying pseudo-Catholic shit Newt Gingrich(besides as TJF has said, a Newt is slimy creature that can live on both land and in water), but he’s still Romney. Rick Santorum is faar better because not only is he not Barack Obama, Newt Gingrich, or Romney, but because he’s a decent Roman Papist. He’s reaching out to working class Christians. He may not be Pat Buchanan, so not ideal, but he’s good enough.

    You saw, that I linked a LaRouchist at IMF (the same Kievsky I once linked before) who implicates the Queen in our modern societal malaise… Don’t get me wrong; I don’t think Her Majesty is perfect; I watch her Christmas address every year, and it’s distressingly PC in all too many ways, but I certainly find laughable, the idea that she’s part of a global conspiracy to subvert America and the West, blah blah blah. LaRouche claimed the Queen is a drug dealer; right…

    LaRouchism…. More like LaDouchism!!

    These are the same dumscheissen that say the Catholic Church is responsible for the destruction of the West when in fact the RCC created Western Civ. What did Belloc say again? Something about how “Europe is the Faith” meaning(as opposed to what his stupid detractors would say he meant) that the Faith created Europe.

    Belloc said, “The Faith is Europe; and Europe is the Faith.”

    And he was right; Western Civilization only achieved greatness when it became Christian – not in its pagan days, before…

    And as Ron Neff said, “There can be no doubt that the Northern peoples carried within their unique type of courage, curiosity, and humor the seeds of greatness. But as a matter of historical fact, those seeds grew and their flowers thrived not in the roots of Yggdrasil but at the foot of the Cross.”

    Just so. The AltRight neopagans are a joke.

    Well, the pre-Christian Roman Civilization(and Greek Civ as well) was pretty glorious but it was the Roman Catholic Church that brought the legacy of these two classical civilizations to all of Europe(and later on the world).

    Someone who inherits a throne, a) does not attain their position as a result of ambitious power-seeking and b) is likely to have been trained in statecraft from an early age. These are both positive qualities in a ruler, male or female.

    Someone who is elected to office, a) is by definition an ambitious power-seeker and b) is likely to have been trained for a different career, such as law or banking, altogether. These, especially the first, are deplorable qualities in a governor. They are terrible qualities in men and are even uglier in women.

    Hence the paradox that most of England’s female monarchs are also among the best monarchs in history, whereas female politicians, with one or two exceptions, tend to be among the worst of politicians.

    Hmm… How Germanic is most of Western Civ? I’m thinking about the Iberian countries, Italy, and Poland when I say this. For the longest time in Western Civ, the entire West was Roman Catholic… It is true that the most successful Western nations are Anglo-Saxon(and therefore Germanic)..

    @ Gerry T. Neal

    Exactly. I’ve always felt that there was a logic behind monarchism, you just helped me put it into words.

    @ Svar: It’s both, and all. Samuel Francis once wrote: “The West is a cultural compound of our Classical, Christian, and Germanic past.”, a statement with which I agree.

    @ Will

    Hmmm, I see. That makes sense. I was just wondering how strong the Germanic influence was in some Western nations. It seems that some of the West is more influenced by Greco-Roman culture, Catholicism(it’s the the Catholic countries that I think are more Greco-Roman), as well as some small influence from their native cultures(and in the case of Iberia, Sicily, and Malta, foreign. Those Regions have a heavy Arab, North African, and Islamic character in their character as Catholic as they are). I’m mainly thinking about Iberia, Italy, and Western Slavic countries when I say this.

    February 11, 2012 at 9:11 pm

    Well, the thing is, most of the peoples of what was once the West Roman Empire – Italy, Spain, Portugal, France – are ethnically a mix of Roman and Germanic. There are other elements, too, like Arab / Islamic in Spain, and of course much Islamic influence in Eastern Europe (esp. in the church architecture – the round domes of the East are much more like mosques than the more square and angled churches of the West), and the African / Arab influence in Malta, etc.

    All these things, along with the Christian faith, came together to form Western Civilization.

    The Queen has to vet all her statements with the government of the day. Consider this year’s Christmas address –which was overtly Christian: Would never have got past NuLabour. (or the grits, for that matter)

    God save the queen. May her reign be long, and may she see England again be a sovereign nation, free of the EU.

    @ Svar: I forgot to mention the Celts, who certainly constitute an important strain in the French, and to a lesser extent, the Spanish. Of course, in the British Isles, they and the Germanic Anglo-Saxons constitute the two main people…

    @ Will

    I’m not arguing with your points because I think that you’re right, but I do think that Europe is a cultural mix of Germanic and Romantic, not a genetic one. There are many different strands of European Caucasoids, after all.

     
  27. Will S.

    February 11, 2012 at 9:33 pm

    Oh yes, the cultural and religious element is certainly more important than the genetic, I certainly agree.

     
  28. Svar

    February 11, 2012 at 9:38 pm

    There are genetic mixtures, of course. I’m just saying that there are several other Europid subraces. As well as non-European(like Arabic, Berberic, and Iranic) and even non-Caucasian(Finno-Ugrics and Magyars) elements

     
  29. Svar

    February 11, 2012 at 9:40 pm

    But in the end, the cultural element is basically a mixture of Roman and Germanic. How prevalent do you think the Celtic aspect is?

     
  30. Svar

    February 11, 2012 at 9:43 pm

    I do wonder how much of Iberian culture is(as well as was say during Roman times) influenced by the pre-IE Iberians.

     
  31. Will S.

    February 11, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    In France, it’s there to a fair degree; remember, France only went Roman when Julius Caesar defeated Vercingetorix; and then the Franks invaded and intermarried with the Romans / Celts. (In Brittany, the Celts are fairly unmixed; the Bretons celebrate and remember their Celtic cultural inheritance, and still to some extent speak their ancestral tongue.) In Iberia, the Celt aspect is not as strong, save in Galicia, which, while not as Celtic as Brittany, still is more so than anywhere else in Spain, and they do remember that.

    I was simply remarking that in listing some of the different ethnic strains besides Roman and Germanic, I had neglected to mention the Celts.

    You know what’s sad? That North Africa and much of the Middle-East would still be Western(or atleast a strong and loyal ally of the West) if the right people had won the Crusades.

    Incidentally, at the risk of mildly offending any E.O.s who may visit, why did they end up falling to Islam, where the West not only halted the Moorish advance at Tours, but ultimately reversed it and drove them out? Because the western church maintained the filioque in the Nicene Creed, that’s why. 😉 (j/k)

    Seriously, though; Spain, in its Moorish architecture, may be just as strongly culturally influenced as the onion-domed East, yet the three Spanish kingdoms united and kicked Moorish ass, where the East fell to the Turks… And many eastern Europeans converted to Islam, creating the mess in Bosnia and the former Yugoslavia, whereas the Spanish stayed loyal to Rome – and with the Inquisition, stamped out any Muslims present…

    I’m just sayin’, I see the three main traditions – Eastern Orthodoxy, Roman Catholicism, and Protestantism, as all having various strengths and weaknesses, and any champions of the E.O. way who are tempted to view their tradition as superior to the West’s two main ones, I only ask, and how well did you guys resist, back in the day? 😉

    Have you guys seen “The Queen”? It’s really an awesome look at what a stately and dignified lady Queen Elizabeth really is. After seeing it I was thrilled to see “The King’s Speech”, another awesome film looking at the life of her father. If you buy the DVD, you can listen to one of his actual speeches and watch a video of footage back then during another one of his speeches.

    During the tour, in a broadcast to the British Commonwealth on her 21st birthday, she pledged: “I declare before you all that my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service and the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong.”

    I always had a soft spot for her, but to hear these words from her own mouth is just inspiring. She is a true monarch. God save the queen!

    And I LOVE the picture of Queen Elizabeth up top.
