Thanks to BUGSERS Who Bring Us Back to Earth

“The King of TTGH’s” article a few weeks ago was hard for me to write because it is the kind of historical happening that made Tolkien cry out at night over the outcome of the Battle of Hastings, and us old Southerners weep over some piece of special stupidity that destroyed us in our War for Southern Independence.

But comments on the article were largely down at the Stormfront level, like whether Mrs. Simpson was a good girl or not, until Secret Squirrel and Jason put in their slams at the gossipy nonsense:

Secret Squirrel began the one-two punch:
“I assumed everyone got this, because it’s old news to me.
“TTGH: As a Matter of Principle – or Romance – we will have our own way and the cause be damned.”

Here Bob is pointing out the TTGH personality type and the reasons they give for betrayal.
If you have someone in your group and they start making threats to do things their way, or they’ll leave because “its the principle”, then tell them to leave. Nothing is more damaging to a group than a TTGH.”  photo dukewindsor.jpg

Jason followed with a good hard left:
“Exare usually just getting off some steam. Exactly right. It wasn’t the King chasing a woman that caused the trouble, it was his “principled” demand to have his own way or throw a big temper tantrum. It could have been over a woman, religion, or anything else under the sun. The point is for US to remember the trouble such people cause.”

When someone gets us off track with Aristotle or God Will Get You, they are just letting off some steam.

There is room for people we respect to let off SOME steam here.

But when commenters reduce the most tragic lesson of history, the TTGH throwing away a world in which Britain and Germany could have ruled a white world, to talk about whether she was a whore or comparing that utterly mindless figurehead Britain now butt kisses to the last potentially real kind Britain ever had, it leaves even me speechless.

Edward VIII’s TTGH is a lesson of history, not an item in a gossip column.
