St Georges Cross, Patriotism, and my Public Profile.

Hi all.

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend.

Some, or all of you, may have noticed a sudden outburst of patriotism in my work, and on my Public Profile also.

It started off by doing an early St George’s Day Card to try and generate some interest for this particular day, that is generally overlooked and seen as insignificant.
St George is Englands Patron Saint, and his day should be celebrated.

So, after a few comments by people, the inevitable comment was made about the cross representing the Antichrist. This comment, and many more from the same person on that particular piece of work, came from a non Christian from another country.
RB dealt with the offender and his vile offensive remarks, which were removed by admin.

Political Correctness applies to ALL races, religions, and colours, and not just white Christians.

The offensive comments really infuriated me deep down, but I kept my cool about it, as those of you who commented on it and saw for yourself, know exactly what I mean.

Afterwards, I thought ‘sod it’. Its about time that I let people know who and what they are dealing with.
So, without further ado, here goes.

Yes, I was a ‘Commando Gunner’ in a TA regiment back in London which was affiliated to 29 battery Royal Artillery based at the Citadel, Plymouth. Hence the Avatar.
I am proud to announce and display the fact.
Although I do not agree with the war in Afghanistan and Iraq, I support our troops 100%.

I am Proud to be English.

I am NOT a member of any political party or right wing organisation that uses the St Georges cross as an emblem, so please don’t think that I am.

So, that’s about it. I am a patriotic Englishman. Nothing else.

Thank you.

Richard.
