The Death Of Great Britain, A Continuing Series: Muslims Protest Returning Troops Victory Parade

Apparently resistance is not futile and not everyone will be assimilated. Consider this your high blood pressure warning.

Twice in two years they have fought in Iraq, with two of their comrades paying the ultimate price when they died in a roadside bomb attack in Basra and 10 more killed in Afghanistan.

But a homecoming parade in honour of 200 soldiers back from the battlefields was marred yesterday(tues) by Muslim anti-war protesters.

They hurled abuse as members of the 2nd Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment marched proudly through the centre of Luton.

Waving placards with slogans saying: 'Anglian soldiers: Butchers of Basra,' and 'Anglian soldiers: cowards, killers, extremists,' and 'baby killers,' they were hemmed in by police as the parade passed.

The protesters were then given a police escort after angry supporters of the soldiers - known as The Poachers - turned on them, shouting 'scum' and 'no surrender to the Taliban.'

In the disturbance that followed two people were arrested - but neither of them was a protester who had harangued the troops.

It's a long article and it only gets worse, except for the part where someone threw bacon on the Muslim protesters, that was pretty cool.

In a just world those 'protesters' would have their immigration status checked and anyone not a subject of Her Britannic Majesty would be returned post haste to whatever particular hell hole they were spawned in.

Alas, it's not a just world and this type of shit is all the evidence we need to be reminded of that.

Here's a link to the unit's home page. I don't see any contact page but if any of you morons with stronger inter-tubes fu than I have find one, let me know. Perhaps we can get them a few notes from people who appreciate those who fight for and defend freedom.

UPDATE: Mætenloch makes a good point in the comments, that this is just a handful of people. It looked bigger when I read it, probably because I was so pissed. Hell, we have the Phelps gang in this country (and in the spirit of ecumenism, I haven't lost sleep over anything yelled or thrown at them either) so we can't say we as Americans are above this kind of crap.

Also, "Frederic Barbarossa" in the comments points out the Brits ran the bastards off the street (see video below the fold). Good for them.
