These are the very people who run towards danger, who run towards knife wielding terrorists, who run into the midst a of terrorist outrage knowing all too well that a secondary 'come-on' bomb is a genuine possibility when in harms way. Ditto for our NHS ambulance crews and other emergency responders who do exactly the same in similar circumstances.
Sorry I did not elaborate further i.e. my opinion was about those more avoidable 'unnecessary-trips' ditto that Welsh coach party that recently made the news....And don't start me on that Stereophonics concert at the start of the Covid-19 epidemic which was an absolute disgrace. I hope the band's popularity takes a major hit, the selfish, greedy, money grabbing sh1ts.
The own-goal 'anti-hearts-and-minds' lunacy continues! Common sense is AWOL with these man-child student activist types.
What better way to destroy public support and empathy than by acting in exactly the same way as Nazi fascist thugs do? Here is a piece about another 'own-goal' stunt from a virtue-signaling 'academic' with a yearning to misuse that rather gratuitously and maliciously overused 'R' word.
You've touched upon something that really intrigues me regarding Christian thinking and that is the way one denomination can detest another only a hundred yards or so down the road. That is? By mind-blowing hypocrisy is IMO extremely un-Christian. Appallingly un-Christian! "Love Thy Neighbour".........NOT!
The two individuals I mentioned and their lot of same denomination do not like Catholics cos they practice idolatry, do not like Mormons cos they're heretics dismissing The Bible, do not like Jehovah's Witnesses cos they also heretics by means of the denial of 'The Trinity' i.e. "The father, the son and holy ghost".
They also detest more popular happy-clappy churches seen as 'competition' because they do not do depressing/morbid hell, sin and punishment doctrine. They show contempt for discerning "church shopping" attendees who prefer to jump ship and put their money into another 'rivals' collection plate also.
I'm not a Theologian or churchgoer, but my chance encounter with these two charlatans taught me to realize how utterly cold they were and maybe, just maybe devil worshippers are nowhere near as 'nasty' by comparison.
Many years back I had the absolute displeasure to have met a Christian Minister and his equally revolting wife whom on social media recently, a few months back, 'rejoiced' in a Hulk Hogan Twitter post.
These utterly sick and twisted scumbags were overjoyed with what they perceived to be God's punishment's upon us all by means of Covid-19. They were however not 'overjoyed' with recent NHS staff tributes... These two Christians were most annoyed by 'worship' directed upon mere mortals (as opposed to celestial beings) whom were praised as 'angels'.
They belong to a denomination/geographic set-up that uses church money to employ a (above mentioned) minister, a youth-worker and an outreach/mission worker. Jobs for the boys basically.
I worked out that over a ten year period (with pensions included) nigh on a million pounds is being scandalously wasted on zero-end-product hot air for each to do 2-4 hours a week max. That money should be vastly better spent on helping the poor, homeless and foodbanks. Now I bet that Jesus guy would really like that!
There are no doubt many fantastic Christians that live up to Jesus standards, practice what they preach, but there are others who are complete and utter impostors and charlatans.
You cannot help to see the funny side of their lemming-like stupidity what with their preference for having an 'holistic approach' as opposed to boots on the ground. Who the f#ck are they going to employ for that? Mindfulness practitioners. Yoga instructors, Buddhists and Hare Krishna members etc?
NO POLICE! Some deterrent that? Bet that'll really deter your average criminal hey? What a deterrent for those going out on their burglary spree(s) knowing that there are actually no police about to catch em... That'll really keep the numbers down????
Combat 18, White Supremacist Militia, Antifa etc i.e. two sets of immature 'willy-waving' man-child types albeit on opposing sides of the extremes. Meanwhile the rest of society's law abiding grown-up's get on peacefully with their lives.
Just like the two (general public inconveniencing) opposing sides that have gathered over the years in Swansea, both with a forte for wasting valuable police time and resources.
White Pride lot would turn up desperately yearning for the (ditto mindset of the others also) Antifa opposition to turn up to provide the necessary synergy-partnership required to hype-up the whole occasion and to add desperately required melodrama.
They'd be absolutely gutted if the other lot didn't turn up for the annual attention-seeking-fest specifically catered for zero-end-product tossers...........And off to the pub afterwards.... Farce!
They well and truly are, and ain't it rather bizarre that these 5-Star-Hypocrite types envisage themselves as the 'good-guy's' in their fantasy-loon parallel universe.
Often preach 'tolerance' they do. And what an 'anti-fascist' bunch they really are by despising democracy, the right to vote for someone else and right to express a differing opinion to an extent that they gratuitously attack anyone that does.
Do not know whether it is true or not but Hagler's amazing ability for taking a punch was said to have been down to having an extremely thick skull, blessed with a few extra mm's of bone thickness that some say gave extra protection.
Maybe same way physiological-advantage to that of a muscular short thick neck giving a superior shock absorber effect, lessening the chance of a knockout blow.
Here is the guy who was hit by the hardest of heavyweight punchers of his era and still stood, a fighter famed more for his incredible toughness than his boxing skills
What is so absolutely fantastic is the thing called 'the peace dividend' and positives of, making people doubly determined never, ever, ever to return to the bad old days.
The futility of the dissidents direction is rather surreal! Their stupidity to carry on is black comedy stuff. Unlike the 1970's-80's and 90's.... There's high-def CCTV technology everywhere i.e. security force, commercial and civilian. Add to that stuff like number plate/facial recognition, night vision capability, infra red alarms and security lighting all making a terrorists task even more difficult.
To top that even further modern advancement of hidden-electronic surveillance, mini-drones, and 'jarking/tracking/bugging' methods. No need to have covert teams dug in for days on end, just place a 'device' and monitor movement(s) from afar.
The 'magnificent' of 'Stenigot certificate standard' are there to help control the high ground even further by placing the latest surveillance gadgetry on those rather out of reach surveillance 'high-points'.
I do agree that the only occasion someone should put FACT at the end of a statement is when it can be backed it up with the truth, reality, proven evidence, experience, expertise, professional background, privy counsel, honest trustworthy sources and 'up-close-and-personal' evaluation etc.
There is an author (Doctorate holder) who thinks that the twin towers were brought down by 'Star-Wars' technology i.e. 'directed energy weapon' from way up above in the stratosphere. Steel beams turned to dust. "Fact" in her own mind.... All the intelligence in the world means nothing if a person is liar or a psychologically-flawed/money making basket case. Fake news and appalling reporting is an insult to all!
The fact that the current lot in the Welsh Government seem more than happy for Wales to have a backward (HTV Wales reporting) 1960's transport system says a lot. Apparently even refused Westminster money to help sort some of the problem out.
The fact the opposition are still rather silent about the stagnation (e.g relief road scrapped and no alternative forthcoming) is frightening! Transport infrastructure is vital. That lot would be the same lot in charge in an independent Wales, what hope hey? Talk about alarm bells ringing?
I was absolutely aghast by the very profound analysis/opinion of journalist Brian Rowan over ten years ago, and he ain't no mug, knows exactly what he is talking about with unique access to dissident Republican sources ! Privy to a lot of information.
He said that mainstream 'troops-out' Republicanism had finally got its wish to finally have troops off the streets, no roadblocks, watchtowers taken down, no intrusive helicopter flights, freedom to go about daily business unhindered etc. Great stuff peace!
The bit that really took me aback was the fact the 'dissidents' are desperate for a return of all the aforementioned, despite the fact many in the the Republican movement had previously fought, been imprisoned and killed to get the troops out anyhow.
Absolute tOssers not too dissimilar to all these extreme elements that we're all been discussing of late. People who do not want others to get on with their peaceful lives, having a gratuitous urge to divide society, desperately making up excuses just to create unnecessary conflict.
Now I have not read the opinion polls or betting odds out in the U.S.A....But I reckon if Trump gets an uplift it'll be mobs like this along with the malicious branding of decent non-racist Americans as racist that'll gain him a lot of votes that he otherwise would never ever have got.
When own-goal lunacy rules (like with EU referendum/EU elections/U.K General election) people get straight onto 'the outrage bus' and travel ASAP to the nearest polling station to place an X.
Indeed so cos everyone who is white, no matter how kind, decent, caring, compassionate and charitable? Could even be volunteering/ performing the most fantastic deeds in the searing heat of deepest Africa? Yep (i kid you not!) by new standards/criteria that have appeared almost overnight............A RACIST!
