Not Another Ghastly Fairy Tale

I don't mind the kids being captivated by all this stuff, I suppose: they're too young to understand the indignity of the tabloids, and it is a useful initiation to monarchy, as a way to popularize the institution with each succeeding generation. But please merciful God, spare the adults, or what few adults are left, to this contemptible, spit in your face paparazzi.

This is nothing but unbanned foxhunting for the Media Left, and royal foxhunting at that! - those hypocrites! - how dare they engage in this vile, animal blood sport and ignominiously corner the Prince's Royal foxes to grace their paper's cheap, smut-filled pages.

What I want is rigid, stick-in-the-mud stuffy. Give me a royal shooting party and a thousand dead grouses over another horrifically modern, glittering romance. Better yet, make it a new Edwardian tradition to invite the paparazzi to shoot the shoot. Have the grouse fly really low, such that the very best pics require the snappers to run the gauntlet. I mean, why should the royals running the media gauntlet be the only blood sport allowed in town? Fair's fair, right?

Right?

Just have the Duke of Edinburgh invite U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney to his next shoot. Cheney will take care of the paparazzi!

"Honestly, who cares?" sums up everything that is wrong with brain dead modernity. Paradoxically, it is also the reason why monarchy and tradition are relatively safe from further dismantlement. Honestly, who cares?

Alas, "fair is fair" only if the globalist Left declares it is fair.

And if we protest, we either get jailed, thrown into the looney bin, or shot and killed without one wit of remorse.

What can one expect of the ideological descendents of the Illuminati and the French Revolution?
