Our English correspondent Seneca III returns with a meditation on what has happened to Britain, and what the near future is likely to hold.
First They Came…
by Seneca III
“First they came for the free housing, the free health care, for freedom from oppression, for the right to speak freely and most of all for the free money, and we welcomed them and helped them because freedom, democracy, multiculturalism and charity are good.
“Then they came for our books and burned them in our streets, and we helped them by doing nothing because they told us their books good, our books bad.
“Then they came for the girl children and we helped them by ignoring it as long as we could because it was a cultural thing and we didn’t want to appear to be anti their culture, and it was only the worthless children of the white underclass who were being taken, not ours.
“Then they came for the Racists, and we helped them by designating Islam a Race because white racism is bad and no other form exists.
“Then they came for the Islamophobes, and we helped them by calling Islam a religion because hatred of non-Judeo Christian religions is bad and, anyway, a phobia is an irrational fear and as we are sublimely rational and fully understand such things. Islamophobia is obviously evil and dangerous and must be eradicated.
“Then they came for the protestors, and we let them and helped them because freedom of speech, Euro-Culturalism, gender equality, Racism and Islamophobia are all bad things from our past and must be done away with so that there will be peace and harmony and nice times for all in one big, happy family.
“But we were wrong, how wrong we were! Now they have come for us because Islam is in reality a nihilistic, primitive, misogynous, totalitarian political system that tolerates neither deviation nor dissent, and we are just not nihilistic, primitive, misogynous and totalitarian enough for their requirements. Where, oh where is the justice we ask?
