Charlie Gilmour, the son of Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour, has apologized for swinging from a flag after climbing on a war memorial in London. This was allegedly a protest of rising university tuition costs in in the UK.

So, the son of the guy in the band with the well-known song that contained the famous line “we don’t need no education” made an ass of himself and disgraced a memoral to Britain’s war dead — ostensibly for needing education? Kids really don’t listen to their parents, do they?

This was the same protest where angry “students” urinated on the Churchill statue. These jagoffs aren’t fit to carry a glass of Sir Winston’s Johnnie Walker Black Label:


Pink Floyd doesn’t have a song about not urinating on a Churchill memorial or this would have been ironic too.

“Education funding” is the latest excuse for anarchists, union stooges and rent-a-mobs to stage outbursts. I wonder how many of these “protesters” are actually students. But this is what happens when you try to pull back a nanny state that simply can’t support itself anymore — which is why it should never be allowed to grow that massive in the first place.

    "the latest excuse for anarchists"

    That's why it's such an imperative to lance the boil at the first signs, regardless of imaginary grievance. This goes hand in glove w/ Doug's recent post on disgruntled Kos-bots and their newly found/fabricated discontentment.

    "But this is what happens when you try to pull back a nanny state"

    Correct. Doug openly questions how many of the protestors are actually 'students' and not to one-better anyone, 'my' question is; how many of them are 'serious' students? We're peering into -our- future here folks. What you see is the fruition of generations of outsourcing and an entire population without purpose.

    All they're looking for in the way of 'school' is to make the most of their younger years before their share of the dole takes a hard, cruel and -permanent- turn for the worse. To a lesser degree we're starting to see that here.

    Loved your "Clinton Takes Charge" article at MM. If anyone gets time, read thru the comments. Other than a teensy-bit o' much needed comic relief ( the Iowahawk spoof is a must read! ) they're frankly, chilling.

    Any sightings from the left as to how they could 'possibly' spin this as anything other than the most fantastic un-Presidential implosion of our time? Much thanks in advance.

    Thanks! I'll have to scroll through the comments this evening. I wish I had more time to be interactive there but between the two blogs it isn't always easy.

    What a bunch of useless ingrates !!

    Now, my "Pink Floyd" story… My boss / buddy and I were on our way home from working a m/c race weekend in Memphis and just rolling into Nashville,TN when we saw a radio station`s billboard sign featuring Pink "Floyd". Yep, Floyd, the Mayberry barber all in pink ! We decided to turn to that station hoping to catch some good ol` PF , it was a fortuitous move, we heard of a serious traffic accident with traffic backed up for miles ! We were 1/2 mile from the interchange and were just able to make the right turn to avoid hours delay ! Thanks PF !

    Doug, good job on both your Clinton stories – thanks !

    Makes a great Christmas gift:

    There was an episode of some TV show years ago where a bunch of psychologists were all in a band together… the band was called "Pink Freud"… I liked that one too.

    Damn. I was hoping the irony of the day was the roof collapse at the MetroDome in MN while the climate change summit wrapped-up in Cancun.
    This shocked Al Gore so deeply that he almost swerved his Hummer off the road!

  10. Doug on December 12th, 2010 1:13 pm

    I'll be mentioning that shortly at Michelle Malkin's site!

    That is another priceless post Doug! Hope everyone here in Michigan is enjoying the blizzard – er – I mean the global warming confetti show.
