Gates of Vienna News Feed 8/21/2011

Gates of Vienna News Feed 8/21/2011Everyone in the world except for Dymphna and me seems to have gone on vacation. Most of our usual tipsters have disappeared, so the news feed is light tonight.

The big news of the day is that the Libyan rebels have overrun Tripoli, and are said to have captured three of Moammar Gheddafi’s sons. Col. Qadafi himself has not been seen, and he has reportedly already left the capital. It seems that endgame is very close for the Man of Many Spellings.

In other news, an Islam-critical politician from the “Pro” movement in Germany was attacked on the street in Berlin by a masked leftist thug, who sprayed acid in his face. The victim received burns around his eyes, but was released after being treated at the hospital. He is not thought to have been permanently disfigured.

Thanks to An EDL buck, heroyalwhyness, Kitman, and all the other tipsters who sent these in.

So now that Tripoli has been joyously liberated, I supposed the hundreds of thousands of Libyans who have fled in boats to Lampeduse, Malta and the Italian mainland, will have no objection to being returned home?

And yes, I know my question's rhetorical.

This is tyranny. For This to treated as law and considered as law - as this article keeps declaring - is the obliteration of the Rule of Law and the Republic; we are even beyond the Rule by Law: we are under the Rule of the Tyrant's Whim.
