... about some bloke from Blackburn, Lancashire.
OK, I know that news from Texas is about 3 days old, and I know it's not 4,000 holes in Blackburn, Lancashire this time, but just the one hole, maybe a couple, in Englishman Malik Faisal Akram, as he was shot by Texas cops while leaving the scene of his holding people hostage for a few days. No, his name was not Alistair Spode-Featherstonehaugh, as speculated by Steve Sailer - he kids, he kids*, or my guess of Ian Niles Worthington-on-Thames, the 3rd.
Still, it's bloody coincidental that the residence of this Englishman Malik Faisal Akram is that as memorialized in a famous old avant-garde pop tune called A Day in the Life. The younger readers just won't get this post! See, Millennials, you know the old singer named Paul McCartney? Yeah, I know, I can't recall his most recent Kasey Kasem reported American Top 40 single either, but that aside, do you know he used to be in a world famous musical
That 1967 released Beatle album featured advanced songwriting and a song that wasn't just the same old chorus-verse-chorus-verse, standard guitar/bass/drums/keyboards, and catchy lyrics done in 3 minutes like most of the songs at the time. Oh, there were plenty of exceptions, sure, but this was a groundbreaking album, as Pet Sounds was for the Beach Boys just before. A Day in the Life was one of these avant-garde songs. It had a few tunes put into one (a style that Paul McCartney did so great with with his later Wings band), with interludes, not your standard rock & roll instruments, weird sounds, etc.
I read the news today oh, boy.I don't know what Englishmen Lennon and McCartney were "on about", as the Englishmen say, with the lyrics, LSD possibly having something to do with them, but I've got a question. Would anyone involved in the songwriting or songlistening have imagined that a Moslem terrorist would have come from Blackburn, Lancashire ... in 1967? How about 1997, even? It wasn't even a year after Sgt. Pepper's when Englishman Enoch Powell gave his "River of Blood" speech. (See VDare for “Like The Roman, I Seem To See 'The River Tiber Foaming With Much Blood'”—Enoch Powell's Great Speech.) The British have always believed in more government than Americans in general, but, when it comes to protecting our countries from the outside world, we could all agree with Mr. Powell that "The supreme function of statesmanship is to provide against preventable evils." Instead of preventing it, our governments have invited evil in!
Four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire.
And though the holes were rather small,
they had to count them all.
Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall.
I read yahoo news today oh, boy
about an unlucky man who's below the grade.
And though the news made me rather mad,
well, I just had to laugh.
I saw the photograph.
They blew his brains out from afar.
They shouldn't notice his ethnicity's strange.
A crowd of people stood and stared.
They'd seen his type before.
Nowadays we're pretty sure a guy like that could join the House of Lords...
I'd love to turn you on ....
Straight off the yahoo news today, oh boy, it told me who was that the terrorist in the Colleyville, Texas Synagogue.
His name was Malik Faisal Akram, and apparently ...
I'll have more tomorrow about how a bloody Brit like Malik Faisal Akram waltzed right into the U.S. of A., no sweat, from an expert in this area at VDare.
* As do the commenters, always a very humorous, in addition to knowledgeable, crowd.
** The remake of it, done by TDZ or somebody (Lady Gaga?), has a longer title - A Day in the Life of an English Moslem terrorist on the Sabbath.
