Boadica In Pink!!

After 2,000 years in hibernation, Queen Boadica has arisen! For my American readers, Boadica was an ancient warrior queen in tribal Britian at the time of the Romans. She led her people in a revolt. It is said that in and around London, if you dig down to the right layer, you can find the charred remains of that time.

Now Boadica has arisen once more to the defense of her people. Our own Alison at Making Headlines has resurrected the fighting spirit of the British woman, although she might not realize it yet. Because, you see, she's pissed off. I mean cross-eyed, stabbed ass, can't see straight pisssssssssssssssssed off!

She went to the March for Free Speech Rally in London yesterday. First the Muslims got to it's organizer and "persuaded" him to Back Down. Then Muslim bully boys tried to take Alison's sign from her! Not hardly, MO FO. Jonz at Drunken Blogging describes the altercation with the pricks that tried to bugger a sign away from our Alison. Fuck them and the camel they rode in on! Oh and of course the police were there, evidently to save the Muslims of London from the hands of the right wing mob that espoused Jefferson, freedom of expression, freedom of speech and all of those things people naturally associate with Nazi Germany.

Not only that, but many so called blogs that espoused free speech are shitting on the march and the marchers for being iineffectual. Un-fecking-believable. I won't even sully this post by linking to these sunshine patriots.

The best news of all however, is that the story was picked up by BBC, which shows Alison holding her now world famous "Stop Toonophobia" sign. The story was also picked up by Associated Press, which mentions the sigh as well.

So to recap, Alison's web site was hacked and brought down, she was survielled by police, set upon by angry Muslims, pissed on by the right-wing, then had her picture on BBC and had her sign and story picked up by Associated Press and sent around the globe. Not bad for a weekend off to rest. Well done, Boadica, well done indeed!

ADD ON:Here's a really cool website with lots of PICTS.

I LOVE the phrase 'sunshine patriots'! Seconding it for use some time soon.

So true Alison. All honor goes to Thomas Paine in 1776:

"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph."

It was written in his pamphlet "Crisis" to buck up our Revolution against your nasty Crown! ;)

Tom Paine - now there was a great man. They've named a beer after him in Lewes, the town where he worked before going to America.

If you ever see Harvey's Tom Paine Ale, have a glass and toast the man himself.

I might have to nick that quote too.
