COLLECTIVE MADNESS


“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

The New German Lion and The Rape of Europe. "cum hier Kätzchen."

..."The very word Islam means “submission” and the secularists have submitted already. Many Europeans have already become Muslims, though they do not realize it or do not want to admit it."

Two stories of note. (hattip Habu) One begins like this:
"The German author Henryk M. Broder recently told the Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant (12 October) that young Europeans who love freedom, better emigrate. Europe as we know it will no longer exist 20 years from now. Whilst sitting on a terrace in Berlin, Broder pointed to the other customers and the passers-by and said melancholically: “We are watching the world of yesterday.”

Europe is turning Muslim. As Broder is sixty years old he is not going to emigrate himself. “I am too old,” he said. However, he urged young people to get out and “move to Australia or New Zealand. That is the only option they have if they want to avoid the plagues that will turn the old continent uninhabitable.”....

..."Many Germans and Dutch, apparently, did not wait for Broder’s advice. The number of emigrants leaving the Netherlands and Germany has already surpassed the number of immigrants moving in. One does not have to be prophetic to predict, like Henryk Broder, that Europe is becoming Islamic. Just consider the demographics. The number of Muslims in contemporary Europe is estimated to be 50 million. It is expected to double in twenty years. By 2025, one third of all European children will be born to Muslim families. Today Mohammed is already the most popular name for new-born boys in Brussels, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, and other major European cities."...

..."As Tom Bethell wrote in this month’s American Spectator: “Just at the most basic level of demography the secular-humanist option is not working.” But there is more to it than the fact that non-religious people tend not to have as many children as religious people, because many of them prefer to “enjoy” freedom rather than renounce it for the sake of children. Secularists, it seems to me, are also less keen on fighting. Since they do not believe in an afterlife, this life is the only thing they have to lose. Hence they will rather accept submission than fight. Like the German feminist Broder referred to, they prefer to be raped than to resist.

“If faith collapses, civilization goes with it,” says Bethell. That is the real cause of the closing of civilization in Europe. Islamization is simply the consequence. The very word Islam means “submission” and the secularists have submitted already. Many Europeans have already become Muslims, though they do not realize it or do not want to admit it.

Some of the people I meet in the U.S. are particularly worried about the rise of anti-Semitism in Europe. They are correct when they fear that anti-Semitism is also on the rise among non-immigrant Europeans. The latter hate people with a fighting spirit. Contemporary anti-Semitism in Europe (at least when coming from native Europeans) is related to anti-Americanism. People who are not prepared to resist and are eager to submit, hate others who do not want to submit and are prepared to fight. They hate them because they are afraid that the latter will endanger their lives as well. In their view everyone must submit.

This is why they have come to hate Israel and America so much, and the small band of European “islamophobes” who dare to talk about what they see happening around them. West Europeans have to choose between submission (islam) or death. I fear, like Broder, that they have chosen submission – just like in former days when they preferred to be red rather than dead."

  3. Tp posted this earlier:

    TP said...
    The historical relationship between the "Euros" and Jews living therein is a tad more complicated than just "envy" for the latter.

    I think I summarized the history of anti-semitism, Christianity, and Europe--and how they relate to one another--in a post in the past; and don't have the time to repeat myself here and now.

    Let's just say that as much as one would like to blame Muslims alone, almost equal blame must be put upon Christianity for creating, spreading and supporting anti-Semitism. Both in written word and in actions undertaken.

    From Christianity did Europeans also learn anti-Semitism. Post second world war period has been the most pro-Jewish period of all times in Europe--also the most secular.

    What comes to envy: People have the habit of being envy now and then. But I have never personally witnessed any kind of envy towards Jews living here. People's attitudes towards Jews are as neutral as could be. If Jews were "hated", they would not get voted to the Parliament, would not work in visible posts in national media etc. Of other places I can say nothing, though, except that many leftist Euro politicians are playing with the anti-Israel card. Israelis themselves don't seem to care: They could not bother less to explain what they are doing, why, and who started it. The Muslims? I here said earlier that they cannot accomplish nothing meaningful, but I must add that they do know how to manipulate the media, and western news agencies. Not only how to throw stones at armored vehicles.

    So, go figure. People believe in what they see and here often enough. You can ALWAYS count on the stone throwers to press their truth upon the media.

    I personally couldn't take part in a pro-Israel demonstration back in the summer, as I don't happen to live in the capital city. I'm sure there were also pro-Israel demonstration in the USA, certainly there had to be, but I also saw (on news) huge pro-Hezbollah demonstrations in the USA. And when they interviewed those college students... Jesus Christ, they spoke like neo-Nazis, calling death upon Israel and hailing Hezbollah and solidarity for Palestinians and what ever other crap... I don't remember any more.

    It is good if Americans are not envy for wealthier, more successful, harder working people. Immunity for this is great. It has not always been like that, though, as the history of Japanese in the USA shows. Or the historical (luckily passed?) fear of allowing the black kids to have the same chances than white kids in their lives. Or adults, for that matter.

    There are not all that many Muslims in the States, I guess. And their "distribution" (don't know better word out of my head) amongst the regions of Europe varies greatly: Not all of Europe is densely populated by Muslims. Far from it. Very few Euros are afraid of Muslims, unlike some seem to believe. Awareness of these issues is on rise, though; but how, if at all, it will actually materialize, no one knows.

    But should the number of Muslims increase in the USA as well, what could it lead into? If they erected communities alike to those of the Chinese, Mexicans, Italians etc.--areas unofficially reigned under Sharia by the elders: miniature societies within a society...

    OK I'm running out of time here, but there may be more Muslims in the States also in the future.

  4. It certainly seems as we look at the events of the past few years that the world is a scary as it's ever been. But let me take you back to a few weeks in our lifetime that were even more scary.
    During these past few weeks forty four years ago it was mano o mano with a very dangerous enemy.

    1962 : The United States and Soviet Union step back from brink of nuclear war, Oct 26-27, 1962.
    Complicated and tension-filled negotiations between the United States and the Soviet Union finally result in a plan to end the two-week-old Cuban Missile Crisis. A frightening period in which nuclear holocaust seemed imminent began to come to an end.

    Since President John F. Kennedy's October 22 address warning the Soviets to cease their reckless program to put nuclear weapons in Cuba and announcing a naval "quarantine" against additional weapons shipments into Cuba, the world held its breath waiting to see whether the two superpowers would come to blows. U.S. armed forces went on alert and the Strategic Air Command went to a Stage 4 alert (one step away from nuclear attack). On October 24, millions waited to see whether Soviet ships bound for Cuba carrying additional missiles would try to break the U.S. naval blockade around the island. At the last minute, the vessels turned around and returned to the Soviet Union.

    On October 26, Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev responded to the quarantine by sending a long and rather disjointed letter to Kennedy offering a deal: Soviet ships bound for Cuba would "not carry any kind of armaments" if the United States vowed never to invade Cuba. He pleaded, "let us show good sense," and appealed to Kennedy to "weigh well what the aggressive, piratical actions, which you have declared the U.S.A. intends to carry out in international waters, would lead to." He followed this with another letter the next day offering to remove the missiles from Cuba if the United States would remove its nuclear missiles from Turkey.

    Kennedy and his officials debated the proper U.S. response to these offers. Attorney General Robert Kennedy ultimately devised an acceptable plan: take up Khrushchev's first offer and ignore the second letter. Although the United States had been considering the removal of the missiles from Turkey for some time, agreeing to the Soviet demand for their removal might give the appearance of weakness. Nevertheless, behind the scenes, Russian diplomats were informed that the missiles in Turkey would be removed after the Soviet missiles in Cuba were taken away. This information was accompanied by a threat: If the Cuban missiles were not removed in two days, the United States would resort to military action. It was now Khrushchev's turn to consider an offer to end the standoff.

    I believe that when we get hit by another big terrorist attack, a dirty bomb etc, that in the aftermath we won't have too many Muslims left in this country to worry about.
    I have stated many times that a violent vigilante response will overwhelm police and National Guard abilities to control the situation. The National Guard would want some pay back anyway.
    Look at the LA riots of 1965 and the Rodney King Riots. All the police did was cordon off the area and let it happen. Much of the same will happen except this time it won't be the Koreans shooting to protect their stores in South Central LA, it will be enclaves of Muslims being killed by avenging Americans. There really should be no reason for a mosque to be left standing on our soil. Wear a mask.

    This may be the only time you hear me compliment Mr. Powell, but he was correct in his appraisal of the danger of al Sadr in 2003, wanting him dead, then.

    Sadly, I don't see things improving in TWAT under Mr. Bush. The President is not posturing or propagandizing when he sincerely calls Islam the "Religion of Peace." I am afraid that we who favor the sword, like Peters, will have to fume in fury, waiting for a better day. Millions will die, of course, in consequence of upholding the President's delusions of the universal nobility of the human character. Oh, well, millions is a small price to pay to keep one man's dream alive.

  17. Mr. Bush is as enamored of his belief system as any of the Christian missionaries of old. What the President lacks is the courage of his role models to face death and martyrdom to expedite G-d’s kingdom brought to earth. Moreover, to his shame, he has no qualms about sending American youth into the fray, using them as the Little Sisters of Mercy with Chainsaws. Charitably, mistakes have been made in the effort to realize the President’s irrational quest.

    The Democrats feel that Mr. Bush is a cynical hypocrite, no doubt an issue of projection. No, Mr. Bush is a sincere man, and that is the problem. His idealistic (1960s) view of reality will never come to the world of man. Children will be left behind and old folks will have to find the means to medicate themselves and wars are not the stuff of “Onward Christian Soldiers.”

    Woodrow Wilson, a man offering the nearest parallel to Mr. Bush, was also an idealist. Another nexus to Wilson, although uncommented, both men’s origins are from the progressive Northeastern political establishment. The daily routine of the privileged town of Kennebunkport has no equivalent in Gaza, for example. Al-Quds University is not Harvard or Yale. Muslim warriors were not modeled after Saint Augustine. Mr. Wilson failed to force his fellows into the progressive mold and so will Mr. Bush. Time, however, is wasting.

    The Policies we are following are based on Religion of Peace. The are also based on Mr Rumsfeld and General Paces's view that:

    "... Speculating again about the future, Rumsfeld said, "there will be ... ... no way the military can win or lose a war."

    ... "We're socialized into believing the American military can go find somebody and kick the hell out of them, or find a battleship to sink, or an air force to shoot down. You can't do that in the 21st century."...

    ... Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff ... ... agreed the terrorists can be deterred "if the American people will just give us the time."

  25. rufus,

    President Wilson, one time president of Princeton University, J.D, PhD, and world renowned historian, believed in the League of Nations and the Treaty of Versailles. As Messrs. Carter and Clinton proved, it is far too easy to become president.

    Am I to understand you to say you do not believe the President? Are you suggesting that the millions of Americans who take Mr. Bush at his word are marks? Five plus years is a lone time to maintain a hoax, especially one requiring the approval and public enunciation of the President’s cabinet. And by enunciation I mean, “To state or set forth precisely or systematically: enunciate a doctrine.”

Genuine allies share goals, values, an interest in outcomes -- they are those nations you can trust to get your back. Britain is such an ally, Australia, Canada, Poland too.

  56. If you yahoos will remember, I commented over a month, ago, that a Pro-War Dem was trouncing an anti-war Dem in Cn, even with a Pub siphoning off some pro-war votes to the right.

    Even then, I said that the War might be over-rated as an election issue.

  57. I'd say that Mr Lieberman is more the case of a popular incumbent beating the crap out of an intraParty upstart in the General Election.

    The fact that the upstart was a one note symphony just makes it easier.

    Iraq is just an issue because it is not going well. If Baghdad had been secured, the Insurgents defeated and the militias disarmed.
    No one would care. If the US was already departing, exit stategy in place, no one would care.

    But Iraqi as quagmire, NorK nuke tests and Iranian cascades do not play well for the President, this go round.

    re: More on the Australian “Rape Sheik”, who is, by the way, not part of the “radical minority." No indeed, he is none other than the mufti of Australia – the big kahunna

    “Those atheists, people of the book (Christians and Jews), where will they end up? In Surfers Paradise? On the Gold Coast? Where will they end up? In hell and not part-time, for eternity. They are the worst in God’s creation.”

    I hope the President caught the atheist theme. He should think about that the next time he is tempted to say “We are family, Moses, Mohammed, and Me.”

    “But when it comes to this disaster, who started it? In his literature, writer al-Rafee says, if I came across a rape crime, I would discipline the man and order that the woman be jailed for life. Why would you do this, Rafee? He said because if she had not left the meat uncovered, the cat wouldn’t have snatched it.”

    The Sheik is an elegant dog, isn’t he?

    “Satan sees women as half his soldiers. You’re my messenger in necessity, Satan tells women you‘re my weapon to bring down any stubborn man. There are men that I fail with. But you’re the best of my weapons.”

  59. Stories such as this one are why I detest McCain-Feingold and fault Mr. Bush and the SCOTUS. In this case, once enshrined a bad law was snatched up for abusive use more than a century after the fact.

    3. snarl at ant muzzzies voting
    4.snarl at any muzzies voting
    5. leave your gun in the car
    6. take breath mints you might run into some of todays inspiration.

  64. Hell, tell doug that wretchard has had a break through.

    ...A number of books including the Shield of Achilles or the Pentagon's New Map have advanced the proposition that we are going through an major historical transition and that we live in a fundamentally different world from that of the Cold War. Yet our mental models are lagged; perhaps the more educated we are, the more lagged we tend to be.

    That's why I'm using psyops. The Mohammad Atta's of the world all went to strip clubs , got lap dances etc. They know, it just tortures them to have this piece of shit fable, the Qu'ran (sound of flushing) telling them "Can't touch this"
