The Gettysburg Address - David Cameron Is No Abraham Lincoln

Address delivered at the dedication of the cemetery at Gettysburg.

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those here who gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate - we can not hallow - we can not consecrate this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note , nor long remember what we say here, but they can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us - that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion - that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain - that this nation under God, shall have a new birth of freedom - and government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

November 19. 1863.

Without the top and bottom lines most students from the pre-progressive education era will still recognise this as the Gettysburg Address, delivered by President Abraham Lincoln while consecrating the war cemetery after the battle of Gettysburg during the final stages of the American Civil War.

Most students will not have committed it to memory but they will be familiar with its sentiments, particularly the last line. They will also acknowledge that it was delivered by a man so immense that despite his humble beginnings and demeanor, he strides across history like a colossus.

It is believed that President Lincoln wrote this speech himself on November 18/19 while travelling from Washington DC to Gettysburg. It is also believed that he was seriously ill at the time, suffering from the initial stages of smallpox.

With all this in mind it is worth contrasting Abraham Lincoln, together with this defining moment in history, with the current crop of political leaders as the world created by the fallen from both the New World and the Old, goes to hell in a hand basket.

The catalyst for this article was British Prime Minister David Cameron and his threat to sack any government minister who does not back him over a his proposed EU renegotiation and referendum.

(Since the leaders of the EU, including the Supreme Leader, Angela Merkel, have ruled out any
re-negotiation this is regarded as a cynical election tactic by Cameron) 

It is obviously beyond his comprehension that these ministers are elected to represent their constituents who in ever increasing numbers disagree with Cameron's subservience to the EU bureaucrats. Either this or he believes the views of the people are irrelevant and should be ignored.

Whichever it is "government of the people, by the people, for the people" plays no part in his political philosophy or that of his administration. 

It is worth reminding ourselves that David Cameron is no Abraham Lincoln. There is no log cabin story here or grinding poverty. Nor is there self education, work in the real world or any experience whatsoever of the lives of ordinary people.

David Cameron hails from a remote, wealthy elite who was apparently 'spotted' at university as potential leadership material. Spotted by who and under what criteria remains a mystery.

He is a machine politician created by PR men, advertising executives and image consultants with the sole purpose of fronting the political elite who are committed to imposing their 'progressive' agenda on the British people whether they want it or not.

Unfortunately for the British people, David Cameron couldn't write a lunch order without his army of SpAds (Special Advisers), spin doctors and media management consultants let alone a Gettysburg Address.

While President Lincoln 'dedicated a portion of the battlefield as a final resting place for those who gave their lives that the nation may live', David Cameron attends the Remembrance ceremony at the Cenotaph knowing he is surrendering the sovereignty that our Glorious Dead sacrificed their lives to preserve.

At the same time he is dismantling the once mighty British military machine in preparation for its absorption into the European Defence Force thus consigning a major part of Great Britain's glorious past to history.

To add insult to injury he attended the Remembrance ceremony in the company of five of Great Britain's most notorious collaborators. This group of people are committed to the destruction of a sovereign Great Britain in favour of a post democratic federal super state.

These six political collaborators have done more to damage Great Britain's independence and sovereignty than Hitler's bombs ever did. In line with the demands of EU membership they have set about deliberately destroying British culture and its way of life for a mythical 'multi-cultural society'.

This willful destruction is social engineering on a massive scale designed to replace the cultures and ways of life of the individual nation states with a generic non-European citizen.

On the left is Gordon Brown, a Scottish socialist and misanthropist who harbours a particular loathing for the English people. Apart from his economic incompetence which broke the nation's finances, he signed the Lisbon Treaty breaking a specific promise to give the people a referendum first.

Next is Ed Miliband, better known as Red Ed. He took over the leadership of the Labour Party after Brown's ejection from power. A first generation immigrant, he is a born and bred Marxist who is committed to the replacement of a sovereign Great Britain with a communist run United States of Europe. In line with his creed, he is opposed to the British people having a referendum on their future.

Next is the infamous Tony Blair, another Scotsman and committed Europhile. A growing number of British people consider Blair to be a war criminal for taking Great Britain into an illegal war with Iraq which cost hundreds of thousands of lives.

The refusal of the government, both British and American, to release the findings of the Chilcott inquiry into the Iraq war is considered by many to be the political establishment looking after one of its own.

Then comes Nick Clegg. The leader of the ridiculously named Liberal Democrat party is another Great Britain hating first generation immigrant who's dedication to the United States of Europe is legendary. Clegg also believes that the British people should not have a say on EU membership via a referendum.

Next to Clegg is former Prime Minister John  Major, a committed Europhile who signed the Maastricht Treaty. This more than any other treaty effectively ended Great Britain as an independent country thus giving away what Our Glorious Dead made the ultimate sacrifice to preserve. He did this without consulting the people first or giving them a referendum.

On the right is Cameron, the current leader of the movement dedicated to the replacement of the independent nation states of Europe with a post democratic federal super state.

The appearance of these politicians at the Cenotaph desecrates the monument and makes a mockery of the Remembrance ceremony.

It is worth noting that it's impossible to differentiate between the malign intentions of these six British politicians with those of the Norwegian politician and traitor Vidkun Quisling. Like Quisling they are surrendering their country to foreign rule to the detriment of the people they are supposed to be representing.

I would add in conclusion that there is one particular British politician that ranks alongside Abraham Lincoln in the annals of history and he had something to say about Quislings and those that tried to destroy the nation states of Europe.

  1. Wishful thinking on my behalf... I have often said that those wishing to serve this country as a member of parliament, should first gain several years experience outside of it by working for a living, or serve Queen and Country in the same way. Career politicians serve only themselves, they bring nothing to the table but the bad habits of those they lackey under as gophers.

    Let Camermoron sack any government minister who does not support his cowardly renegotiation, because they will have shown great fortitude in doing so; the inward opening door to UKIP is but a few streets away.

    The six political buffoons shown in the Cenotaph photograph should hang their hypocritical heads in shame, they are not fit to lick the street grime from off the side of the Cenotaph.

    Quick dit: Just after John Major stabbed Maggie Thatcher in the back, the presumptuous helium breathing barsteward spoke to my RM ships detachment as we deployed for Iraq. Looking at me he squeaked; "Do you have everything you require?" ~ "Not really" says I ~ "I'd like a few snivelling politicians stood shoulder to shoulder with these lads when the s**t hits the fan!" Cue the MOD PR team leader who slid me to one side away from the gathered press. I growled in the same PR officers ear that his arm would be torn off, and he would be beaten with the soggy end if he ever touched me again (not bravado, but seething anger.) He disappeared quicker than Paul Daniels magic assistant Debbie McGee…

    It is truly hoped we will soon see the likes of Winston Churchill and Maggie Thatcher once again, just as it is truly hoped that the EU will die a horrible lingering death after the UK withdraws from its diseased festering corridors in Brussels.

    Yours Aye.

    1. You are absolutely right EB, being an MP should be restricted to those with experience of life in the real world. This current bunch of college kids are either ideologues or implementing an agenda on behalf of the powerful elite. The views of people are ignored until election time then the buggers are all ears.

      I'ts great to know that you let the grey man have a piece of your mind and you were quite right with your request. I wonder what his reaction would have been had you mentioned the blessed Edwina.

      Is there really such a position as MOD PR team leader? I thought those job titles were limited to us lot in civvy street. What would his/hers job be when the s**t hits the fan.

      I have Sir Winston's writings and speeches on my favourites list so I have easy access when I need a boost after languishing in the swamp with the current political shysters.

  2. When I get the chance to breath i'll drop you a 'politically slanted' mail that will make your eyes water - with anger - not envy.

    The MOD do indeed have greasy worm like PR civil servants, whose very existence makes me want to baulk to this day. Had I known about the 'Curried' one at the time of the incident, I would have blasted the helium windbag over the side, and then beat the PR guy senseless with the bloody ragged end of his arm.

    Like yourself, I also have the wit and wisdom of Churchill at hand that sadly is far easier to view than rolling through my collection of books on the great man.

    (I will also admit to a perverse addiction of watching YouTube clips of Nigel Farage, and Daniel Hannan tearing into the EU circus!) Yours Aye

    1. I look forward with anticipation to your mail, not that I need any motivation to dislike the political class.

      It would be interesting to know what other ludicrous job titles are lurking in the modern MOD. I was honoured to spend some time on secondment to the RAF based at Brize Norton after some boozed up general imposed himself on some British citizens in the South Atlantic. I can't remember any such creatures with fancy job titles back then. I guess I wasn't paying attention.

      The video clips of Hannan and Farage reaming out Gordon Brown are classics which I never tire of watching.

      Let me know if you need my email address
