I never said a word about you on this thread until you insulted genuine people who have a real connection to Stonehenge because of some imagined link you supposedly have.
When I first arrived on A2K you attacked me, and Contex, and Fresco for that matter, just because we're English and your bigotry is ingrained. You started it. And yes, I did take the piss, because you invite ridicule, you're so sneering and arrogant just because you can regurgitate, (highly revised and biased,) bits of historical data yet you have no wit or sense of humour. You're very dull, tedious and petty.
Have you ever even been to Stonehenge? I doubt it. Well I go there a lot, and as I'm having to visit a sick relative in Bath I drive past it quite often. It never ceases to fill me with a sense of wonder. I only live just over 32 miles from the place. I have a connection, this is where I'm from.
And so do the druids, I've met quite a few of them, there's no doubting their sincerity, their love or their deep seated spiritual connection to the place even if it may be misplaced. They liven things up, add a splash of colour. They're ours, and they're as much a part of our culture as the stones themselves.
You have no connection, you're a foreigner, an American. Stonehenge wasn't built by Americans nor is it in America. It's here, it's ours. The druids aren't jokers, what's a real joke is an American living in Canada pretending to be Irish who thinks he can sneer and insult people who live over here and cherish our heritage. Our heritage, not your heritage. This place has nothing to do with you, and any claim you may have had you long abandoned when you abandoned these shore.
It's not as if Stonehenge is even in Ireland, the place you claim to be from.
I wouldn't mind so much if there was any consistency in what you say. You've got a decidedly pick 'n mix approach to appropriating our culture. Magna Carta? You'll have some of that so you can attempt to portray your system of government as having a deep rooted democratic tradition. Yet when it comes to the crusades that's got nothing to do with you. Well the Arabs don't see it that way, and after the debacle in Iraq neither does anyone else.
You're a bloody atheist, why would you even care about what druids do?
These people have a connection to Stonehenge, their ceremonies add a bit of colour to the place and keep Stonehenge a living monument. They're not harming anyone. You are a foreigner, someone with no connection whatsoever to the place people and landscape. You're a malign influence who thinks he has the right to tell us what to do while insulting our people, our culture and our traditions.
Stick to your own country, your own place, your own traditions and keep your nose out of ours.
