The sun never sets on the British welfare system

Like the British riot girls interviewed by the BBC, the Democrats
Those of you following the barbaric rioting in Britain will not have
failed to notice that a sizable proportion of the thugs are white,
something not often seen in this country.
Not only that, but in a triumph of feminism, a lot of them are girls.
Even the "disabled" (according to the British benefits system) seem
to have miraculously overcome their infirmities to dash out and
steal a few TVs.
Congratulations, Britain! You've barbarized your citizenry, without
regard to race, gender or physical handicap!
With a welfare system far more advanced than the United States,
the British have achieved the remarkable result of turning entire
communities of ancestral British people into tattooed, drunken brutes.
I guess we now have the proof of what conservatives have been
saying since forever: Looting is a result of liberal welfare policies.
And Britain is in the end stages of the welfare state.

In 2008, a 9-year-old British girl, Shannon Matthews, disappeared on
her way home from a school trip. The media leapt on the case – only
to discover that Shannon was one of seven children her mother, Karen,
had produced with five different men.
The first of these serial sperm-donors explained: "Karen just goes from
one bloke to the next, uses them to have a kid, grabs all the child benefits and moves on."
Poor little Shannon eventually turned up at the home of one of her
many step-uncles – whose ex-wife, by the way, was the mother of
six children with three different fathers.
(Is Father's Day celebrated in England? If so, how?)
The Daily Mail (London) traced the family's proud Anglo ancestry
of stable families back hundreds of years. The Nazi war machine
couldn't break the British, but the modern welfare state has.
A year earlier, in 2007, another product of the new order, Fiona
MacKeown, took seven of her eight children (by five different
fathers) and her then-boyfriend, on a drug-fueled, six-month vacation
to the Indian island of Goa. The trip was paid for – like everything else
in her life – with government benefits.
(When was the last time you had a free, six-month vacation? I'm
drawing a blank, too.)
While in Goa, Fiona took her entourage on a side-trip, leaving her
15-year-old daughter, Scarlett Keeling, in the capable hands of a
25-year-old local whom Scarlett had begun sleeping with, perhaps
hoping to get a head-start on her own government benefits. A few
weeks later, Scarlett turned up dead, full of drugs, raped and murdered.
Scarlett's estranged stepfather later drank himself to death, while
her brother Silas announced on his social networking page: "My
name is Si, n I spend most my life either out wit mates get drunk
or at partys, playing rugby or going to da beach (pretty s**t really)."
It's a wonder that someone like Silas, who has never worked, and
belongs to a family in which no one has ever worked, can afford a
cellphone for social networking. No, actually, it's not.
Britain has a far more redistributive welfare system than France,
which is why France's crime problem is mostly a matter of Muslim
immigrants, not French nationals. Meanwhile, England's welfare
state is fast returning the native population to its violent 18th-century
Needless to say, Britain leads Europe in the proportion of single
mothers and, as a consequence, also leads or co-leads the European
Union in violent crime, alcohol and drug abuse, obesity and sexually
But liberal elites here and in Britain will blame anything but the
welfare state they adore. They drone on about the strict British
class system or the lack of jobs or the nation's history of racism.
None of that explains the sad lives of young Shannon Matthews
and Scarlett Keeling, with their long English ancestry and perfect
Democrats would be delighted if violent mobs like those in Britain
arose here – perhaps in Wisconsin! That would allow them to
introduce yet more government programs staffed by unionized
public employees, as happened after the 1992 L.A. riots and the
1960s race riots, following the recommendations of the Kerner
MSNBC might even do the unthinkable and offer Al Sharpton his
own TV show. (Excuse me – someone's trying to get my attention
Inciting violent mobs is the essence of the left's agenda: Promote
class warfare, illegitimate children and an utterly debased citizenry.

tell us "all of this happened because of the rich people."
We're beginning to see the final result of that idea in Britain. The
welfare state creates a society of beasts. Meanwhile, nonjudgmental
elites don't dare condemn the animals their programs have created.
Rioters in England are burning century-old family businesses to the
ground, stealing from injured children lying on the sidewalks and forcing
Britons to strip to their underwear on the street.
I keep reading that it's because they don't have jobs – which they're
obviously anxious to hold. Or someone called them a "kaffir." Or their
social services have been reduced. Or their Blackberrys made them do
it. Or they disapprove of a referee's call in a Manchester United game.
A few well-placed rifle rounds, and the rioting would end in an instant.
A more sustained attack on the rampaging mob might save England
from itself, finally removing shaved-head, drunken parasites from the
benefits rolls that Britain can't find the will to abolish on moral or
utilitarian grounds. We can be sure there's no danger of killing off
the next Winston Churchill or Edmund Burke in these crowds.
But like Louis XVI, British authorities are paralyzed by their
indifference to their own civilization. A half-century of berating
themselves for the crime of being British has left them morally
defenseless. They see nothing about England worth saving, certainly
not worth fighting for – which is fortunate since most of their cops
don't have guns.
This is how civilizations die. It can happen overnight, as it did in
Revolutionary France. If Britain of 1939 were composed of the
current British population, the entirety of Europe would today be
doing the "Heil Hitler" salute and singing the "Horst Wessel Song."
