Guardian Denounces Liberalism, Murder Still OK

In the Guardian, Timothy Garton Ash deplores the cultural cess pit of modern Britain. Nope, it isn’t Mel P playing a prank, it’s the latest excuse for the Jihadis: they’re alienated by the meaninglessness of modern life.

Apparently, self-awareness isn’t a big seller with the Left. Could there be a better example of the cultural nihilism of modern Britain than the readiness of Liberals to surrender our nation to a bunch of savages ?

Hey, when the kids go out to get paralytic and have sordid sexual encounters, at least they actually follow through. Meanwhile, Guardianistas churn out sermon after sermon on the wonders of alternative lifestyles, civil liberties and the rest of the Liberal agenda, but as soon as some bearded lunatics appear, it turns out they were just kidding anyway.

It’s possible that the Jihadis think our civilisation is weak and decadent because of the actions of 19 year old slappers, but I’m guessing that their confidence has rather more to do with a Liberal establishment so firmly mired in a swamp of post-modernism, multi-culturalism, moral equivalence and the 57 other varieties of Liberal Stupid, that their first reaction on hearing of an attempt to slaughter thousands of innocents is to make excuses for the savages. Or to put it another way, here's a voice from a time when Liberalism and treason weren't synonymous:
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
