Quote# 79439

EVERY YEAR, since 1957, Queen Elizabeth II has delivered a televised Christmas message. A comparison of her first address from Sandringham with this year’s message is a study in contrasts and the downward slide of the British monarchy. In the first message, a sober 31-year-old queen reflects on the unsettling pace of technological change and warns of grave moral peril. The habits and principles of the British people, upon which the commonwealth relies, are in danger.

In last month’s message, the Queen makes no mention of moral decline, though 1957 seems innocent and virtous by comparison. She praises team sports, which she equates with the King James Bible as a vehicle for bringing about world harmony. The speech includes video clips which suggest the most talented and promising people in Britain and the commonwealth are black. Soccer, not a moral and upright people, is the answer for multicultural Britain. Well, what else can the Queen say? Everything she feared might happen in 1957 has come true.

I think the Queen might have just matured

BTW, is this website for real? It looks like some elaborate satire but I can't tell

Did i mention that i love how paranoid people jump into wild conclusions based on vague statements?

I hate to burst your bubble here Ms. Wood, but the Queen doesn't write these speeches. She has paid staff to do that for her.

Most english soccer players are imported because there are no soccer fields left in england.

Thank fuck we aren't all constrained by the terrifyingly stringent rules extant in the narrow moral oubliette Laura inhabits.

Back in the 50's people were paranoid and worried about everything. I haven't watched any of her speeches but I would be surprised if she hasn't grown up a little bit since then.

Maybe she was just being nice.

You do remember the fact that said 31 year old queen remarked on unsettling technology development happened to witness most of that development in the arena of war?

Just saying that may have colored her opinion on the matter.

Here's a clue, Sparky: Black people do tend to be better at sports. But it doesn't mean the downfall of society.

But the KJV bible bringing about world harmony is just laughable. Nothing's done more to divide the world than religion.

Hell no. 2011 seems innocent and virtuous by comparison to 1957, not the other way around. Blacks are people too, just as capable as whites. Deal with it.

And you DARE treat the Queen with any level of respect, or even... deference? SHAME on you, you monarchist sycophant.

Blacks are the ones who made us all great. They were just slaves and underpaid workers at the time.

Maybe because in 1957 there was indeed moral decline with racism, classism and class struggle that was making recuperation from the Second World War more difficult than it already was. Just a thought.

Lol, her archive is filled with anti women's education rants. She obviously thinks that the 1950's were a time when all women had to do is kick back, squeeze out a kid or two, and the hubby would take care of everything else.

I don't have anything against stay-at-home mothers (if you want focus exclusively on your family, go ahead), but this particular one is a snooty bitch with her head up her ass.

EDIT: The more I read her archive, the more I'm convinced this was written by a man. The "staying at home to leave jobs to men" bit was especially telling.

@ Argle Bargle:

As it turns out, one of the most frequent users of the blog, besides Laura herself, is none other than Lawrence Auster. This guy isn't some nobody; he's probably the most well-known "traditionalist conservative". (A traditionalist conservative is essentially someone who thinks the neocons are too liberal, and are essentially nineteenth-century style reactionaries.) Evidently he has learned how to use the Internet, despite condemning pretty much everything that made it possible. So yes, a man is involved in this blog. Unfortunately, his participation proves that the whole thing is not a Poe, like a lot of people have guessed.

So your complaint is that we should not improve our technology (Which I may add you have posted on the internet. An astounding piece of technology) and that we now have black people in the football?

You are like the weakest racist ever.

Like Argle Bargle says, I'll bet "Laura" is "Lawrence".

As if the Queen writes her own speeches. Someone else does it, fool.

Mrs. Wood,

Once again you display that you know absolutely nothing about anything. Kindly refrain from posting anything on the internet ever again.

Or she was entirely wrong about 'fear the future' crap that eveyone pushes and now she's a lot more 'couldn't give a fucky'

Since the Commonwealth contains India and a large number of African countries, while the parts of it containing whites ( Canada,Aus, NZ) are sparsely populated most people in the Commonwealth ARE black.

Learn to live with it.

It's ironic that the site is called "The Thinking Housewife" when there doesn't appear to be much thought going into the posts.
Either that or it's an elaborate Poe.

2/21/2011 10:40:30 AM



Ok, let's leave aside the fact that the Queen never writes her own speeches(which is true but, what's the problem?, the may pull on the posts and regret how much society has changed anyway?). If she is lamenting so much the pace of technology, why did you chose internet to spout that nonsense?. Be at least consequent. Second, if soccer gathers people and she has to address the commonwealth, which is majoritarely populated by non-whites, what's the problem with you?. She's not to blame if the Britain she lives in doesn't conform your steretypes. And let's not forget something else. At the time, she didn't know that her sons would put her dinasty at stake trying to be as "traditional" as society supposedly demanded. You know, 54 years are a lot of years.

You're truely an idiot if you think the Queen writes any of her speeches.
