I did not watch the Olympic opening ceremony but I realized it was pretty bad when I started getting text messages from politically unenlightened relatives saying how silly they thought it was, and inquiring after my blood pressure. Britain’s political elite seems to have attracted worldwide derision by boasting about the disaster it has created.

Besides the fact that is was pure leftist propaganda, the multicultural theme throughout was ridiculous. If one did not know any better they would assume that the UK was around 70% black, 20% Muslim and Indian and 10% white.

I was searching my brain trying to figure out what the Olympic opening ceremonies reminded me of? And then it hit me. That now infamous scene in the Matrix Re-Loaded of the race mixing pseudo dance/orgy. This is what the UK chose to show to the world as a representation of modern Britain. A couple of solid hours of non-stop drumming and miscegenation mixed in with the industrial revolution, Mary Poppins and the NHS.
