IT’S NOT ‘RACISM’

AS FAR AS

I can tell. I would say it’s a sense of possession coupled with a sense of loss; multiplied by beliefs.

With clear conscience I state that I am as humanitarian as (almost) anybody.

With clear conscience I state that I am as possessive as anybody too. Raised in ‘free’ countries I always looked with condescending disbelief at the situations of others in less happier lands. I decided that they deserved themselves.

And they got it.

So why are we destroying ourselves to make room for them?

Who is pulling our strings?

Who, behind the scenes, is commanding our own masters? As sure as hell it’s not us—democracy be damned.

AS AN AGNOSTIC ATHEIST

I’m happy to accept that my nations’ (plural) politics were established rationally using Christianity as a part vehicle—you know, the old ‘do as you would be done by’ stuff that looks good but nobody actually does.

But there is a

SICKNESS IN THE WORLD

called Islam. Brrrr.

It’s taken Christian politics two thousand years to acquire equality-of-the-sexes, for example—a condition impossible under Islam where women are nothing more than breeding machines (to produce warriors for Allah) and receptacles for men’s lusts (rewards from Allah)—although Islamics will earnestly bleat that in Islam women are cherished, loved, protected … even put into black bags to ‘protect them from the lustful eyes of men who aren’t their masters  owners  … theirs’.

SOMEONE BEHIND THE SCENES

has worked to bring down the western systems. Someone is flooding Europe with a great sickness, in the name of Compassion.

To suggest that it is NOT a good thing to import millions of savages into civilised Europe is to risk the wrath of all, including the ‘United’ Nations—opprobrium from the very people who will be the greatest victims of the coming changes.

I hope I’m wrong.

If I’m wrong, please tell me so—in words I can understand. And better—tell me WHY I am wrong.

Until then I offer these pale echoes—

This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle,
This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
This other Eden, demi-paradise,
This fortress built by nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in the silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall,
Or as a moat defensive to a house
Against the envy of less happier lands;
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England,
this nurse, this teeming womb of royal kings,
Feared be their breed and famous by their birth,
Renowned for their deeds as far from home
For Christian service and true chivalry
As is the sepulchre, in stubborn Jewry,
Of the world’s ransom, blessed Mary’s son;
This land of such dear souls, this dear dear land,
Dear for her reputation through the world,
Is now leased out – I die pronouncing it –
Like to a tenement or a pelting farm.
England, bound in with the triumphant sea,
Whose rocky shore beats back the envious siege
Of watery Neptune, is now bound in with shame,
With inky blots and rotten parchment bonds.
That England that was wont to conquer others
Hath made a shameful conquest of itself.

—make of it what you will.

IF YOU CAN

spare the time, this guy has his finger well on the pulse—

—and names the principle tool of the enemy.

  1. You’re right that it’s not about racism; it’s about what it means to capitulate or undermine or relegate as unimportant the West’s core Enlightenment values in the name of some other ideology, and that pointing out why this capitulation is such a danger is redressed primarily by calling those who dare to do so with pejoratives.

    Mark Steyn is a wonderful and often funny author and columnist who at the very least makes one think even though he is a well known right wing advocate and dismissed by many simply because of this fact. His claim that multiculturalism is synonymous with the ideology of (left wing) cultural relativism, however, is misplaced… although cultural relativism is often confused by people in positions of authority (and yes, often from the Left of the political spectrum) to be synonymous. Only in this sense is his criticism correct: belief in cultural relativity really is a denial of reality. There really are significant differences in core values within and between cultures because there really are significant differences of majority shared values. Shared core values is a very important but not isolated piece of what constitutes a culture.

    Multiculturalism only works when the core shared values are Enlightenment values, which is why multiculturalism exists only in the West… where these Enlightenment values form the legal foundation. This kind of multiculturalism allows and celebrates diversity of other pieces of culture… like language, religion, food, music, traditions, dress, dance, and so on. But when any of these named cultures contain a core value contrary to Enlightenment core values, then we find ourselves in conflict not with that culture but with the piece of it that contains the core value incompatibility. This rarely happens with music or food, for example!

    I say all this because I am Canadian well versed in the history that produced this national political entity that has emerged from multiple cultures in armed conflict and has evolved to become a beacon to the world on how a multicultural population really can and does live together in peace, prosperity, and good governance (with a ways to go for some more than others but still a move forwards). And the way to do this is to accept that we must share a set of core Enlightenment values first – shared rights and freedoms, legal autonomy, dignity of personhood – which then allows and makes room for the celebration of the differences from each culture that constitute it. That is successful multiculturalism both in principle and practice – one that Steyn simply doesn’t register – and it is not a threat but a solution to the armed conflicts that emerge from populations that have incompatible and competing core values. This is why Canadians can successfully negotiate peaceful resolutions to ancient conflicts… like Northern Ireland, like Iraq. Solutions in practice require a shared change by all the parties and so the acceptance of core Enlightenment values are a necessary starting point. This is not simply an opinion but a successfully demonstrated generic means to a specific peaceful end.

    Attacking multiculturalism under the guise of it being only cultural relativism by a clever guy like Steyn reveals the difficult job at hand to export the means for populations to also enjoy peace, prosperity, and good governance without being seen – or acting – as a colonizer. In this sense, it’s not Britain that is responsible for creating regional powers that Steyn cleverly and amusingly uses to suggest cultural superiority; it is Britain – some would argue unwittingly – exporting core Enlightenment values within the colonialization process that these populations have then utilized to neuter Britain’s colonial shackles and set up reciprocal relations without eliminating most pieces of regional culture. That not Britain’s doing: that Enlightenment principles at work.

    The adversary all of us face is not so simple – especially as so many Right Wing advocates use to vilify the Left. The adversary all of us face are those who attack the foundations of shared Enlightenment values, who advocate against shared rights and freedoms, against legal autonomy of individuals, against the dignity of personhood no matter how benign and tolerant the urge might be motivated by. And these adversaries are not some fringe element or extremist foreigners but amongst us, those most capable to influence significant portions of Western populations to implement the reduction of these values first as a social meme under different Enlightenment banners like tolerance and respect which are then shamelessly used to implement exactly the opposite: intolerance and disrespect, which is then and later enacted into law intended for one thing but used for another.

    And these adversaries are growing in power especially in Left, which is why the danger is seen most easily by people like Steyn who are from the Right, people and organizations from the Right who support those from Left who also see this growing subversive danger to us all.

    1. Sadly we all use different definitions in our ‘common language’.
      In New Zealand now ‘multiculturalism’ is all the rage; what it means to many is that we must set aside all we hold dear to accommodate that which (in all truth) turns many of our stomachs.

      So I refuse to sell out, and as a rabid pacifist will fight like an equally rabid dog to retain my personal integrity based on my personal values.
      Right now in NZ we are (we? Oh well …) desperately trying to whitewash the ‘noble savage’ Maori — to say in public or brainwashed circles that the Noble Savage was actually an out-and-out blasted cannibal and slaver until the white man’s law is a wee bit outcasting of self.

      So whatever it means for you, or Canada; down here ‘multiculturalism’ means “Judge not!” (the “lest thee be judged” is left unstated). I don’t give a BRA for any of that, I unashamedly refuse to conform. I will NOT accept barbarisms and will call a spade a spade.

      Frankly I don’t give a damn for politics—I discovered early on that politics is the control of other people’s production; not good in any form. I honestly don’t know ‘right wings’ from lefts, and actually don’t give a damn—so long as both wings leave me alone to get on with life (or what’s left of it) in peace.
      I do NOT want politically correct blasted multiculturalists forcing (say) Islam on me. You know, little bits at a time (actually, the same way cancers spread).

      1. Damn … I wrote and posted that in a helluva hurry. I have a cold, we’re in a wintry blast and I had to take the car down the town to collect Spouse from the supermarket. Global warming? Yeah … right! (Actually, yes please …)
