You may want to take a mini-crash course in the Knights Templar at Wikipedia before reading this story.
The banning of a woman market trader for selling “offensive” Knights Templar mugs isn’t really about the mugs. It about Muslims exercising their clout. It’a also about terrorizing the indigenous white people of Britain.
You will like the lady. She’s totally unrepentant and totally defiant.
A market trader has been banned from having a stall after selling Knights Templar coffee mugs – in case they upset Muslims.
Tina Gayle, 57, who was previously warned for selling books and CDs featuring Nazi swastikas, was ordered to remove the £6 mugs from her stall after Charnwood Borough Council received a complaint they were offensive.
The mugs feature a drawing of a knight and have the Latin motto which translates as: ‘Not to us Lord, not to us, but to Your Name give the glory.’ The Knights Templar was a medieval order of crusading Christian monks who fought against Muslim soldiers. Some modern extremists have claimed to be part of them, for example right-wing terrorist Anders Behring Breivik who wrote a ‘manifesto’ saying they had been re-founded to fight against the ‘ongoing European Jihad.’
When Tina, who pays £16.80 each week for a pitch at Loughborough market, refused to withdraw the mugs she was banned from coming back. The mum-of-five, who also works as a book dealer and artist, said: ‘It’s absolutely, completely bonkers. How on earth are these mugs offensive?
‘I haven’t had a single complaint from a Muslim and I’ve had many browse my stall. ‘The complainant said they were offensive because the Knights Templar killed Muslims in the crusades 710 years ago. ‘The Knights Templar were fighting monks, used to protect businessmen travelling across the Holy Lands. ‘They were not marauding murderers. Whoever made the complaint needs to study the history books more closely.
‘If I only sell books on people who haven’t killed someone, I’d be reduced to Alan Titchmarsh.’ She added: ‘The council gave me a letter at 4pm and said I’m banned. You’re meant to have three written warnings before expulsion and they did not do that.
‘I’m now selling the mugs on eBay. I’d like to get back on my stall but at the moment my hands are tied until the council sees sense.’ A spokesperson for Charnwood Borough Council said: ‘The trader refused to remove the mugs from the stall so we issued a second letter which excludes the trader from all Loughborough markets. ‘This decision is in line with our market regulations which state that if a trader has displayed serious misconduct, they can be immediately excluded from trading, with no further warnings required. ‘Serious misconduct includes bringing the market into disrepute and selling items which could be offensive. ‘The trader can appeal this decision, and we would ask her to write to us to confirm she wishes to do so.’
Diversity isn’t a strength. It’s a prescription of conflict.
As injustices go, Tina’s is minor compared to the injustice suffered by the dead victims of Muslim terrorism.
Britain knows what needs to be done. Summon up the political will and do it, you guys.
