It seems the Islamists have gotten the last --- or maybe most recent --- laugh at the Crusaders, for Europe is increasingly dotted with minarets. The Muslim call to prayer fills European cities to the far reaches of the north. Islamic radicals feel free to murder their Dutch hosts when they criticize their precious religion. Brown-skinned Muslim toughs ride roughshod through London streets. Muslim radicals plan terror in Hamburg, Germany.
All the while, the white Christians of Europe capitulate, capitulate, capitulate. They rend their garments over their "racism," decry LePen and other European leaders who see the menace for what it is, and make it a criminal act to even speak ill of the Muslims.
So yes, the West is self-destructing. But reversing this trend will be extremely difficult, because it will require renewed white racial consciousness of the sort that 99 percent of white Westerners are convinced is pure evil.
gonna agree with ya on that one--don't know exactly how and when but if the us white population doesn't get it together SOON, we're dead meat. I'm NOT speaking of killing off all non whites however whites MUST act as a unified race.
I just returned from seeing this movie and it did play Saladin as a somewhat "moral person". I didn't find it so offensive that I could not identify and like the protagonists' goals. A lot here I think will probably hate it because
of it's anti right wing christian slant.
Joyce, I agree that your philosophies are "pure evil." I thought Himmler was dead. I guess his ideas live on in people like you. Contrary to your assertion, winning the fight against evil ideologies like radical Islamic fundamentalism has nothing to do with resurgent racism. Evil cannot be defeated by greater evil.
Onedomino, some do not understand that The West is a school of thought and beliefs, they only see race. One would hope that time would work its magic, but for some
OneDomino and K:
Some might say the West is defined exclusively by the existence of white people --- nothing more. Others say the West is defined exclusively as a set of abstract ideas --- nothing more.
I don't believe either is entirely correct. I think the truth is in the middle. Yes, Western ideals and ways can be taken up by some other races and cultures in limited and modified ways. But no, you cannot simply drop the black population of Haiti into London or Boston and expect them all to become indistinguishable from everyone else. It just doesn't work that way. Races do, in fact, act differently. Race and culture are very tightly woven together.
And you could NOT drop a European white into the midst of American behavior and expect they would act the same.
Not immediately, but I would modify that somewhat based on the following: In the early 1900s, many European immigrants came over from places like Ireland and Italy. There were differences and there were tensions. Where I live, in NYC, some of these are still raw because this city is probably the "rawest" of the immigration experiences: there are actually Italians here who still speak Italian.
But as these white Europeans spread out over the country and lived here a while, they did begin to blend in and pick up the Anglo-Saxon ways and mannerisms. Part of it was racial: because the immigrants were all from the same continent, Europe, the change was smoother.
Today's immigration flood is different. The racially-different Hispanics are very physically different. There are much higher hurdles to assimilation, partly because there's no pressure to assimilate. But even if there were, it's much harder. An America that is majority-Hispanic will NOT be the same America we once knew.
This is not because whites are "racist" or some other nefarious reason, as the liberals are always insisting. It's just how people are. I think that rather than pretend there are no racial or ethnic differences, we should acknowledge them and let the natural boundaries that evolve STAY IN PLACE. That is really the essence of conservatism, and why it's so bizarre to see the neocons insisting that by filing lawsuits and playing social engineering games, we can make everyone "equal" in the global village.
That does not mean "Nazism" or killing other races. That just means common sense! Nobody is going to be "killed" if we close the borders. Nobody is going to suffer and die if we make English the rule. Nobody is going to be tortured if we don't force whites to hire and live with blacks against their will and vice-versa.
I think that the violence and the mayhem and confusion and hatred come mostly from wrong-headed attempts to forcibly integrate the races, not keep them separate. Separatism has a bad rap, but it's probably the most peace-inducing policy the world has ever known.
But Padesha said it was fair. I'm confused!
