What does the culural shift in England portend for the United States? News from across the ocean:
"Like something from a horror movie. The thuggish, mocking face of George Galloway, flushed with maniac triumph, crying "all praise to Allah" as the sky behind him darkens a shade yet closer to the hue that hung over Berlin in 1933, is as good a visualisation as you could need of the raving, suicidal unreason that now dictates the shape and direction of public discourse and enquiry in Britain.A dark topic to be sure, but this guy is a pleasure to read. Give it a proper look.
It calls for a Francis Bacon to capture its true contours and dimensions, a Hogarth to isolate the depth of the decay and insanity it symbolises, a Goya to unmask the tragedy behind its swaggering and provocation. Neither can its horror be conveyed in mere prose. (Let Shelley give it a try: "I met Madness on the way / He had a mask like Galloway.")
It's all in the open here, for anyone with eyes to see and courage to recognise. The true face of modern Britain: sly, and leering, confrontational and brutish and vulgar, yet also uncomprehending, rejecting hope and decency not consciously but through a genuine incapacity to even conceive of such things."
