Blimey! Slimy Limeys!!!

My Recent Posts

Limeys are starting to displace Canadians and Swiss as the most annoying and irritating people on the planet. It seems that just about every Limey I encounter has an opinion on America and Americans, whether asked for or not. You'd think that they'd know that opinions are like assholes in that everyone has one, and the vast majority of them STINK.

 

Limeys in particular deserve particular hostility, as they are, by and large, the biggest hypocrites on the planet. They sit back, sip their fucking tea, chew on their fucking crumpets, and wonder aloud why everyone else in the world can't be just like them: Tolerant, patient, enlightened, cultured, and full of other nice shit. Huh?

 

Even though we SAVED THEIR ASSES during WW2, do you think those pricks and snotty bitches realize that? FUCK NO. It's funny how a correlation can be made between countries that play incredibly boring and stupid sports share anti-Americanism as their national pastime, for example:

 

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland - Football, being limp-wristed, and America-bashing.

 

Canaduhhh, I mean, Canada - Ice Hockey, being limp-wristed, and America-bashing.

 

Federal Republic of Germany - Football, tailgating at high speeds, and America-bashing.

 

Russia - Football, Ice Hockey, and America-bashing.

 

See what I mean?

 

Reading the history of Britain and the British Empire puts all true crime stories to shame. A HUGE chunk of the world's ongoing problems and controversies can be deposited directly on the doorsteps of the lime-suckers. Seen the Crown Jewels lately? Did those come from a Welsh coal mine? Did the British build a global empire by working and playing nice with others? FUCK NO!

 

Read about what the British did to the Irish over the years, and you'd be surprised if every single Irish man, woman, and child didn't want to join the IRA. The Limeys and others say Americans are genocidal, yet their various campaigns in Ireland over the years can easily be interpreted as being genocidal in intent, if not outright practice.

 

And, my favorite topic of all...SLAVERY!!! Why is it that Americans are widely "credited" with slavery when it was YOU FUCKING LIMEY ASSHOLES that started it? Oh, not just you; the French, Spanish, Portuguese, and several others had that particular institution going for many centuries before the first shots of the American Civil War were ever fired.

 

There! I vented my spleen for the time being! To be honest, some of the finest people I've ever met were fucking Limeys; you're not all bad, but too many of you are assholes! Fuck you!

 

I hope you have a pleasant day, and evening too, lol!

"Crumpets"?! I had it on good authority that they only had 3 food groups: pork pies, cucumbers, and strawberry jam. I suppose that they have to put the jam on something.
The English used to have a great internet shopping site called Excalibur but sadly long gone. Ray Davies abandoned the sinking ship for Louisiana and the place is just hollowed out. He would rather take a bullet than be an Englishman. They may as well hand themselves over to a useful group such as the Poles.
The ruthless occupation of Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland must end!

Pardero, that reminds me of yet another British tradition; bad food! How on Earth can you fuck up a cheeseburger? Yet, the Limeys routinely do that. Regarding the Scots and Welsh, the English can beat the shit out of them until they can't tell the difference between fish and chips, haggis, and bloody shit. Can you tell that I'm Irish? lol

 You certainly seem to meet very different people than I do. When we were in Turkey we met a group of very rowdy Limeys that almost got us in Turkish prison, but my Turkish weedled us out of it. 
 
Despite these difficulties we enjoyed them quite a bit.
In case you think they were mild, here is a dropbox link to
one doing a New Zealand Kata Limey style.

Yes Mustafa, I do indeed meet different people than others, lol. This post, in case you didn't pick up on it, is a combination of silly satire and utter seriousness, especially about the Limeys being limp-wristed. In fact, they are tough, brutal, and ruthless killers, and are every bit as aggressive and greedy as anyone else in the world. Even Hitler admired the British, which speaks volumes, lol!
Michael B. Added Mar 9, 2018 - 12:58am
The Limeys seem to be continually butt-hurt about being duped into launching Operation Telic, their part of the invasion of Iraq. While I state that next to Vietnam, the invasion of Iraq is among the dumbests things the U.S. (and its "allies") has ever done, the way I see it, the Limeys have either duped, or attempted to dupe, the U.S. so much over the years, one good duping deserves another. Operation Ajax, for example, the incident that has the Iranians pissed off at the U.S. to this very second, was actually a favor the U.S. did for their Limey friends. Many Iranians have said, and continue to say, that the British are FAR worse than the Americans. The 1956 Mideast War was also engineered by the Limeys, the Frogs, and their eager and readily-scheming Israeli buddies.

Michael B. Added Mar 9, 2018 - 1:30am
Mustafa, I have MUCH to say about Rommel! On one hand, he was a brilliant tactician and engineering officer, who fought "clean." On the other hand, he was very much a creature of Hitler (One in the sand, and the other in the snow, the "snow man" being Dietl), and Rommel used his personal connection to Hitler to cause all kinds of mischief in the German High Command, but that's another story. I think you have the British confused with the Italians; Rommel had the utmost respect for the Limeys, and said that Italians were brave men that suffered from bad leadership, and he often said that directly to the Italian generals that were on his staff and even (nominally) his superiors.
 
Regarding the signs your friend encountered in Iran, they're par for the course. The Limeys and the Russians literally invaded Iran in 1941, the results of which formed many different government's policies long after that. Winston Churchill used Iranian oil to fuel the Royal Navy for many years before that.
 
"We certainly enjoyed their company, my wife included."
 
No doubt...the Limeys can be pretty fucking funny; Benny Hill and Monty Python are among my favorite comedy acts of all time!

"Limeys are starting to displace Canadians and Swiss as the most annoying and irritating people on the planet."
 
Coincidentally,  I am currently staying among a groups of Canadians. Extremely friendly people. I am enjoying them alot.
 
Moreover, 
I have also lived and worked among the Swiss for half of 1989. I cant say I was annoyed or irritated by any of them. Yes, they did have an annoying thing. I forgot, it was terrible.  When I would bring out my camillus knife to open a bottle of beer at the cafeteria a nervous hostess would run over really quick and open it with a real bottle opener. You should have seen their faces when my wife poured peanuts into her coke!, but I dont think I would call that annoying.

Maybe you don't like the way they dress or pronounce, words like schedule or get squeamish when you open the gun cabinet. But they are the children of your mother or father's big sis, your favorite aunt. So you bite your tongue and get on with them as best you can. 
And to be sure they probably look at us much the same way for the most part. So were hated! What do you want, a pity party?

There is more interesting history there for those curious enough to seek it. 
 
Another note, Michael...... A great amount of the abuse heaped upon the Irish over the centuries has come not from Englishmen, rather from absentee Irish landlords, the lace curtain Irish. There's not a man who knows best what is worst for the Irish than an Irishman. At least they gave us Jamesons.

I remember the saguaros in the desert around  Tucson during the  the Islamic revolutions. Never met an axolitil that I didnt like. Not a soul that i met knew about the Mosadeq coup, including me. Most thought that those slimy bastard  Aryans
were abusing us Americans while we were making the world safe for democracy.
 
But today, more people know, but still very few.   Yes, the price the British paid for the American coup was the creation of a jointly UK and US owned BP . Funny, the British were willing to give it up to the Americans but not the Iranians. Those Persian bastards.
 
The Scotts-Irish curse,.... Burghal, can you hear my belly laugh!

Michael my dear old thing, it's regrettable that you feel such profound hostility to everything related to my country and, it would seem related to any country outside the USA. You are certainly not unique in this, who can forget that historic day when the world's greatest American, Homer Simpson, reminded our Prime Minister at the time, Tony Blair, "We saved your ass in Vietnam."
Might I suggest however that were you not yourself such an arsehole (Please note correct spelling) people of various nationalities might not be quite such arseholes in the way they respond to you..
One point you make is quite unjustified and I cannot let it pass without comment. How can any American who wants to be taken seriously claim that 'the limeys' can fuck up a cheeseburger. A citizen of the nation that thinks its a good idea to take a perfectly good Hamburg Rundstück and ruin it by melting plastic cheese over the minced steak is not really qualified to act as a food critic.

That's funny. For much of my life I have been asked if I was a Canadian. A few years in the Southwest and they would look puzzled but not ask. Lately, people just ask, "Where are you from, anyway?" Sometimes I say 'Idaho' and sometimes I say 'Here.'
LOL 
I had a new job several years ago. The police showed up and were acting all stressed out. Checked my ID and ran it. Then they relaxed. Some lady had recognized me from a true crime type show. Some mass murderer from Vancouver, BC that was on the lam.

Interesting story, Pardero.  A Scottish colleague was greeted with automatic weapons pointed at him at immigration in the US.  His middle and last name was apparently that of a criminal on the lam.  The sad part about it is that it happened a second time.  Sounds like you got off light.

I have my own issues with the Brits, but they were clever enough to manipulate us into World War I, which roped us in to World War II, too.  They are smart enough to convince the world they are smarter and more civilized than everyone else.  They still refer to the US as "the colonies."  And, I have to admit they have a wonderful sense of humor, most of the ones I've met, anyway, and I like British literature, too.
 
However, if food is the measure of a nation's level of civilization, the UK would have to rank at the bottom of the world, with maybe only the US ranking lower.  Blood pudding or McDonalds' fast food?  It's enough to make starvation preferable.
Leroy Added Mar 10, 2018 - 12:23am
I worked in France in the late 80s and early 90s.  I traveled around Europe mostly by train.  If there was anyone that was obnoxious, dressed weird, or had multi-colored hair, one could be assured that they were British.
 
Aside from the above, the British always treated me well.  I traveled with one who had a knack for pissing off the French.  He was always good for a laugh.  A small group of us went to the 24 Hours of Le Mans.  It was a last minute decision to go.  Pretty much all of the campsites were taken.  Some Brits heard us talking and asked, "Are you Americans?"  We said, "Yes."  "Oh.  We put a tent up over there to keep the fucking French away from us. No one is staying there.  You can have it." They were as obnoxious as could be but were a lot of fun.

One of my great mentors in ERISA and Health Law was a Professor who happened to be an Englishman who graduated from Oxford . . .  which is hard to admit when you had a Scots father and an Irish mother.
 
Of course, my father's father came here (illegally) in 1876 from Canada, where his family had moved in the 1860s, so I imagine that makes my opinion count a bit less.

The Scots (while British) are not very fond of England and its treatment of its neighbors . . . especially in the Highlands, after the Clearance.
 
My mom's great grandfather, a poor scholar who taught at Trinity, wound up coming here in 1848 to avoid an English noose from his involvement in the 1848 Young Ireland movement (vastly overshadowed by the Famine).
 
Let's put it this way, there are a great many fine people who are English, but that country would not be my first choice for a neighbor . . . .
 
But, since I live in NYS, and not the Dee Valley, Glasgow, Dublin or Cork,  I have far more latitude to be magnanimous.

Hahaha. I admit, if you fight with one, you better be in a group, too. I wonder how the soldiers can go into Syria without everyone bring along his brothers and cousins, not to forget the sister, nana, and the family dog.
 
It isn't always a mark against a people. Tell me, were the Irish much different? I think Ireland has gone a very long way in a very short time.

The Swedes have no crotch at all. (Off-topic, I just thought of a way to place an anti-Swedish insult somewhere)
 
Anyway, I also like Mexicans. And indeed it is comparable. You have the warmest, politest people and also a cesspool of savages.

When we lived there in the eighties, you could tell when it was 10pm saturday night. That was when the couple upstairs had sex.

Thanks for proving my point!

Logical Man,
 
Michael B is the antithesis of a logical man so it's befitting that he hates your Limey, logic-ridden avatar.  He's a psycho, and one that'll stab you and twist the knife with a smile at the first opportunity.  - Just fair warning.  He's also a known plagiarist that mostly repeats the same six to ten articles, which may or may not be made of his own efforts.  Thought I'd save you and hopefully others, the waste of time. 
Tom C. Purcell Added Mar 11, 2018 - 2:13pm
My impression of Michael B. is something like this... Skip The Soda Jerk from 'The 'Burbs' .
 
...nothing personal, Michael B., just my experience.

Michael B.,
When I first saw your posts and your comments, my thought was;
wow, this guy is really full of anger and hatred. 
 
My understanding of anger and hatred is that they both do alot of  harm to both the possessor and those around him or her.
 
But one thing I know for certain, if you would bring that attitude
into where I live, and many places I have lived in the past, you would not last long.  
Benjamin Goldstein Added Mar 11, 2018 - 4:29pm
Tom, you also keep repeating your articles and the value of your Nazi articles to me has been that they are not original. I actually learnt from you the narratives and use them to detect Nazis on German sites.
 
I recently had one blasted who wrote something with 'big lie'. So I referred to her holocaust denial and all other users went all over me. How dare I think that about her? The lady came back to confirm that she denied the holocaust. Hilarious.
 
Michael isn't a psycho. He just likes to kill. Don't bother! I'd protect you.
 
I actually don't want to mock your tender side. I think, your reason why you cannot grasp the evil of the holocaust is the most decent one ever. You cannot be that evil and you have a hard time to understant that others can. I think that qualifies you to be an excellent father figure.

Thank you, thank you all for commenting! This post accomplished its mission, by several orders of magnitude! I'd LOVE to get into some more heavy ad hominem attacks, but I don't want to push Autumn Cote's limits, so I'll shut up...for now! Don't worry my Limey friends, I promise not to punch the next person I hear with a Limey accent, or force cars with Canadian plates off the road, lol.
Tom C. Purcell Added Mar 11, 2018 - 7:10pm
The best part is he won't deny anything I stated, because it's blatantly, obviously true.  He's not stupid (Michael B.), he's just psycho, and he knows it.  I'm not perfect either but a spade is a spade, right?  Michael B. also helps me recall the scene from the '90s movie, 'Se7en' with Spacey and Pitt.  Pitt's character asking Spacey's (or me asking Michael B. as the case may be), "Do you guys know you're so crazy?  I mean, do you ever, when you're sitting in your own feces, masturbating to Guns & Ammo (magazine), do you ever suddenly realize, and say to yourself "man I'm pretty fucking crazy!""

Damn Purcell, I didn't think we were friends, but certainly not enemies! Whatever, dude. Life's so full of ironies: Purcell has now become what Jeff Michka was, and, in a further ironic twist, I seem to be cool with Michka these days. WB makes strange bedfellows, indeed. LOOOL!
Tom C. Purcell Added Mar 11, 2018 - 7:23pm
I don't hate you, I don't consider you an enemy.  I just think you're a loose cannon, that's all.  :)
Michael B. Added Mar 11, 2018 - 7:27pm
You're right about that...don't you just love WB! LOL! Have a good evening, Tom.
Benjamin Goldstein Added Mar 11, 2018 - 7:32pm
Tom,
What separates a man from a psycho is the inhibition to act out evil impulses. Brain scans have determined that two parts of the brain differ: the frontal cortex which regulates impulse control and the amygdala a part of the brain that fires up fear from punishment.
 
The truth of the matter is that most men get a kick out of killing. This is not a sign of a mental problem. And in the context of combat this is not detrimental to society.
 
If anything the nihilism that comes out of it can be a problem. Most soldiers protect their psyche by developing an intense relationship with G-d. So they try to stay on a moral track. The only unusual thing about Michael is that he feels that he doesn't need this proximity to G-d and that he is honest about the actual going-ons of warfare.
Tom C. Purcell Added Mar 11, 2018 - 8:43pm
LOL, save it, Ghoulsteen. We already have far too much superficial philosophy and armchair psychologists in these parts.
Benjamin Goldstein Added Mar 12, 2018 - 6:12am
It is a little known fact that half of the weight that soldiers carry around are handkerchiefs which they need to dry their tears in the event of enemy tanks flaming up.

Bloody hell I go away for a couple of weeks and come back to this!!.  I don't insult the US except DT who gets insulted by americans more than I do.  I have freely admitted that we brits raped and pillaged the world for years and are responsible for more shit than any country.  Those were different times. We lost our place as the worlds biggest fuck ups after the second world war. Now we just try to be the moral leaders of the world. Ha that's a joke. I have disagreements with guys and girls from your side of the pond on this site but I don't believe I have insulted anyone.  I am ex army as you know and I have nothing but good things to say about your military. As to sipping tea, well yes I do, not crumpets, scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam.
