The #Unexpectedly Chronicles Pam Geller and Burning Poppies

In Flan­ders fields the pop­pies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

Lt. Col John McCrae In Flan­ders Fields Stanza 1 1915

The lat­est in our series of posts that will not sur­prise any per­son who has been pay­ing attention.

Today’s install­ment comes from Pam Geller con­cern­ing Islamists in Eng­land, but before we get to the piece some nec­es­sary background

Since John McCrae wrote his poem In Flan­ders Fields from the front lines of World War I the red remem­brance day poppy has been a sym­bol through­out first the British Empire and then the British Com­mon­wealth of nations to remem­ber those who have died in war. It has been a sacred sym­bol in those nations for almost a century.

In that time this has never hap­pened.

An Army cadet suf­fered burns in an unpro­voked attack after sell­ing pop­pies for Remem­brance Day.

The 15-​year-​old boy was wait­ing at a bus stop in his cam­ou­flage uni­form when a man hold­ing an aerosol can and cig­a­rette lighter approached him.

He then sprayed the ter­ri­fied boy with blaz­ing fumes before walk­ing off with­out say­ing a word.

Police report this was done in broad daylight:

‘This hap­pened at a very busy time in the city cen­tre, near a main bus route, and there could be lots of peo­ple who saw this man stag­ger­ing around.’

What kind of per­son does some­thing like this?

The attacker, who appeared to be under the influ­ence of alco­hol, was described as black or Asian, 5ft 8in tall and wear­ing a dark hooded top.

While Asia is a pretty big place, Pam reminds us that while in the USA “Asian” gen­er­ally refers to those from China or Japan in Eng­land “Asian” is “media sharia-​speak for Muslims” .

Fur­ther­more in the 100 years that such sales of pop­pies have taken place, an age when heavy drink­ing was com­mon, some­how no other drunk has torched a per­son sell­ing Remem­brance Day poppies.

Who would have thought those sym­pa­thetic to Islamists try­ing to kill sol­diers might tar­get the most vis­i­ble sym­bol of west­ern forces?

The latest in our series of posts that will not surprise any person who has been paying attention.

Today’s installment comes from Pam Geller concerning Islamists in England, but before we get to the piece some necessary background

Since John McCrae wrote his poem In Flanders Fields from the front lines of World War I the red remembrance day poppy has been a symbol throughout first the British Empire and then the British Commonwealth of nations to remember those who have died in war.  It has been a sacred symbol in those nations for almost a century.

In that time this has never happened.

An Army cadet suffered burns in an unprovoked attack after selling poppies for Remembrance Day.

The 15-year-old boy was waiting at a bus stop in his camouflage uniform when a man holding an aerosol can and cigarette lighter approached him.

He then sprayed the terrified boy with blazing fumes before walking off without saying a word.

Police report this was done in broad daylight:

‘This happened at a very busy time in the city centre, near a main bus route, and there could be lots of people who saw this man staggering around.’

What kind of person does something like this?

The attacker, who appeared to be under the influence of alcohol, was described as black or Asian, 5ft 8in tall and wearing a dark hooded top.

While Asia is a pretty big place, Pam reminds us that while in the USA “Asian” generally refers to those from China or Japan in England “Asian” is “media sharia-speak for Muslims” .

Furthermore in the 100 years that such sales of poppies have taken place, an age when heavy drinking was common, somehow no other drunk has torched a person selling Remembrance Day poppies.

Who would have thought those sympathetic to Islamists trying to kill soldiers might target the most visible symbol of western forces?
