Gates of Vienna Makes the Grauniad!

The Guardian (affectionately known as the “Grauniad” by its British detractors) is using Gates of Vienna as a news source. Is that cool, or what?

There’s no hotlink, but, hey, you can’t have everything. From yesterday’s online edition:

English Defence League Members Attend New York Mosque Protest

Members of the far-right English Defence League protested in New York this weekend against plans for an Islamic cultural centre and mosque near Ground Zero.

The group’s leader, who goes by the pseudonym Tommy Robinson, and at least seven other EDL supporters flew to the US to oppose the plans on the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
- - - - - - - - -
Robinson was refused entry at JFK airport, taken into custody and flown straight back to the UK, according to a report published on the anti-Islam Gates of Vienna website sourced to EDL activists travelling with him. [emphasis added].

“[T]he anti-Islam Gates of Vienna website”!

We’re basking in the glow of international fame (or infamy, depending on your taste).

Read the rest at the Grudaain, if you’ve a mind to. It will aid your cultural understanding of the world by giving you a guaranteed 100% pure politically correct point of view.

Or you can wait until midnight — a longer excerpt will be included in the news feed tonight.

Met these fellows at the demo and welcomed them to the US. Good to see not everyone in Blighty is bowing and scraping.

I suspect that GoV has had more of an impact on British politics than maybe you have realised Baron.

By way of explanation to those not in the know, the alternative name has its roots long ago when the paper was the provincial daily newspaper for Manchester and was known as the Manchester Guardian to distinguish it from the neighbouring Liverpool Daily Post. However the Guardian had ambitions to be a "proper" national newspaper, and in moving its operations down to London it forgot the Manchester bit of the title. The Manchester Grauniad was infamous for its prolific selection of spolling mistooks in every edition.

In passing, if you try to browse to it does actually resolve to the Guardian site!

Chill out Gordon. If the EDL people came over to cause a problem you could rightly get on your high horse, they came to express their solidarity with the American people - what's so bad about that?

Fantastic. Do we get something to boast about it ? A badge, a magnet to put on the fridge, a sticker for the car, a diploma ? "As vilified in the Guardian". That would be cool.

Congratulations! Let's all hope that this is the first step towards Gates of Vienna usurping the throne that LGF once occupied as a reliable source of counter-jihad information.

Not that the Grauniad would have any productive use for such a thing but that is their own look out.

It's a definite cry for help... Directing the dhimmis to the facts is revolutionary... Somebody is going to get sacked for this...

Let it be known that Gordon/Nodrog does not speak for this American!

Sorry, everybody. I missed Nodrog's little nastygram when it came in, or I would have deleted it then.

He just isn't house-trained yet, is he?
