Religion vs Religion

In his latest essay, our Israeli correspondent MC wades into the deepest swamps of the Culture Wars.

Religion vs Religion

by MC

Perhaps my love of America and all things American has its roots in the regular supply of US comics sent to my brother and me by various relatives in the ’50s and ’60s, and amongst which was the occasional edition of MAD magazine.

Much of MAD was over my young head, but Spy vs Spy was always amusing and sticks in my mind, especially their pointed snouts clamped together when investigating a box (trap) from opposite sides.

However, Religion vs (political) Religion is not so amusing, nor is it confined to ink and paper, for the successful side of Western culture is defined by its (Christian) religion, and its demise is defined by the political religions which seek to destroy Christianity and all that goes with it.

The Christian revolution (I am not a Christian but I believe in the Bible) occurred when the Bible was translated into local languages and printed for all to read, and the Church was dragged out of its roots of feudalism (slavery) into what became democracy and even republicanism.

An important part of this process was the separation of Church and State; the Church having been responsible for many abuses that had held the communities of Europe in thrall for over a thousand years.

The feudal system over which the Church held suzerainty was a typical product of tyranny: a small elite, the aristocracy, owning most of the people as serfs, to do with as they please, and a tiny middle class of tradesmen to manufacture those things consumed by their betters. This was just a slight variation on the ‘warlord’ culture that has run most of the world from time immemorial and to this day in some places.

In the UK the feudal system was broken first by the Black Death, which killed off some 30% of the workforce. The subsequent competition for labour destroyed the idea of ‘ownership’ of people. Secondly, and as a consequence of this pandemic, a growing equality of opportunity was provided by increasing access to quality education. Ex-slaves and serfs used their newfound freedom to better themselves.

Under the feudal system, the church provided education and the higher-IQ peasant children were syphoned off into the cloisters. To a great extent this provided the stability required as potential peasant leaders were ‘kidnapped’ into religion (Janissaries, anybody?). Heresy invited a death penalty and life was cheap. In feudal times the Church was very much a political religion, and the Pope reigned over all the monarchs of Europe.

All this emerging freedom from under the tyranny of political religion, however, took hundreds of years to get to the idea of individual liberty. The cultural and economic impacts were minimised by being spread over such a genteel timescale. My paternal grandfather was a boy coalminer at age 12, but his sons went to grammar schools, receiving a quality education, and his youngest son even got a bachelor’s degree in engineering.

But do not think that the ‘elites’ did not fight back. Their main ploy was to create another politicized version of the feudal system that the church had failed to sustain. This took the form of ‘socialism’ where the elite claimed to be working in the best interests of the ‘working class’ by controlling all aspects of their lives. This was yet another political religion, of which we have now seen quite a few forms. Each causes its own mayhem, because there is no separation between political religion and state, and thus there is nothing to stop the killing when it inevitably starts.

Culture Wars International: EU There and Democrats Here

Culture Wars International: EU there and Democrats here

by SF

The following essay is pretty inflammatory; but as we have all seen, acting in a nice, civilized, restrained, and decent manner towards a Hitler or a Stalin, and never saying out loud what is actually going on, only leads more quickly to our own doom.

The EU and America’s Democrats are two sides of the same coin.

Political correctness / culture wars / political Marxism began in Europe. Initially, it was a not unreasonable response to the powerful people (the aristocrats and tycoons) using their power to reward their friends, while keeping “the little guy” from being able to advance and earn a decent living. In Eastern Europe it developed as violent Communism. But Western Europe was different, in that it consisted of many individual, highly developed, independent nations. In each of these nations the struggle was between Conservatism and democratic Socialism. Both were nationalistic. But then Hitler brought things to a head by using Conservative Racist Nationalism to try to dominate the world.

World War Two brought about a Darwinian change in Europe. The most aggressive and militaristic Europeans died in the fighting. The survivors were the ones who were the most wimpy and pacifistic. They were determined to bring about a socialist utopia. Their first goal was to ensure that any Hitler wannabes could never again gain power. So they began a never-ending struggle against nationalism, militarism, capitalism, Christianity, and “white supremacism”. As a counterweight to Christianity, they promoted Islam as “the religion of peace”, especially because most of its adherents were non-white. To do this they had to delude themselves about the true nature of Islam, but they did it happily. Pretty soon they invited Muslims from nearby lands to emigrate to Europe, so that they could dilute the remaining native white conservatives, and they even subsidized the Muslims with welfare payments to make it easier and more attractive to them.

And so we end up with today’s situation in Europe: hordes of unassimilated, Christian-hating Muslims living in no-go zones, most receiving welfare, and committing crimes in the name of Jihad (terrorism, rape, etc.) while the “progressive” governments make excuse after excuse for them (they are unfamiliar with our culture, they are not practicing “real Islam”, they bring more benefits than losses, etc., ad nauseam). And naturally, if you are crazy enough to point out how insane this all is, they will inevitably ruin your life (shades of Stalin).

Police Terrorise Tommy Robinson Again

Paul Weston’s fisking of the Greater Manchester Thugs Police is dictionary-perfect.

What precisely is the point of the useless royal eunuchs who pretend to preside over a country and yet permit lawlessness not only to exist but to prevail? This on-going mess has turned me into an anti-monarchist. There’s not enough pomp and circumstance to cover this Greek tragedy in what has become a third-world, unsafe, and bitter green isle.

Paul is more eloquent than I in describing the high crimes and misdemeanors of the police enforcers:

May God have mercy on them all.

The Crucifixion of Roger Scruton: Britain’s Pivotal Moment

Paul Weston gores the Pygmie Left in the once-great Britain:

I didn’t realize until now that many of Paul’s videos have been taken down. Do you see why we need what those alternatives to YOOTube have to offer? Bitchute, etc., are slow, but as they move out of beta mode look for improvement. It will come with usage.

Here are the essays Paul linked:

Roger Scruton: An apology for thinking

Roger Scruton’s sacking exposes the Tories’ cowardice

The Smear Of Roger Scruton

The Real Roger Scruton Scandal

Read and weep for the death of Truth and Beauty…and yes, the murder of Goodness while we’re at it. Is England’s karma catching up with its history? Even I do not wish on Britain such a fate.

Gateway Pundit Exposes the MSM Narrative on Church Burnings in France

Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit, exposes the refusal of the MSM to name this particular evil. He has some links to other sites which give cumulative damage to churches in France.

Makes one wonder if this is a growing phenomenon which will only intensify now that the Big One has been taken down.

Here’s Jim’s home page, full of interesting American news. Scroll down to see the link to a news item from the U.K. Sun, claiming that 875 churches were damaged last year in France.

So who is Macron demonizing? Why those gilets jaunes, of course. In many respects, they are the French equivalent of America’s MAGA hat troops. They want their country back.

The EU’s Smoky Back Room

Or, for a more universal analogy, how about “Watch your sausages made here”?

This is what we Americans would call “insider baseball” – i.e., of great interest to the players involved and their fervent fans, but for others, not so much.

However, there are always exceptions and this is one. It was educational for me,

Because this video concerns Viktor Orban’s party’s outlook in the coming EU elections, the comments by this speaker will be of interest to many of our readers. It certainly held my attention, enough so that I’ll be watching the outcome of the May elections with great interest.

So which path, of the four he mentions, do you think Orban’s party will follow?

[NB: I had my first cataract surgery today so my moderation of comments will be rare. But just you watch: the B is much harder than I am on offenders. He’s already caught a few I missed and let in without seeing their infelicities, leading to my decision to let him do them all. So if your deathless prose never appears, don’t blame me.]

Tommy Robinson Banned from Facebook, Instagram

Or so the Gruniad delightedly reports – but I’m not going to give them a link for their tediously predictable smear. This “far-right extremist, blah blah” has been silenced yet again by the vast extremist left-wing machine. So for those whose MSM tunnel vision leaves them unable to see reality, enh. Make yourselves comfortable in Plato’s Cave.

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

So TR has to build a workaround yet again. Do these monoliths-in-a-bubble think they rule everything? If they really were in charge, Hillary would be in the White House now.

Any predictions about the future are difficult at this point, but one thing is for sure: Tommy/Stephen won’t be silenced on this side of life’s curtain. He and Trump share some commonalities, including the ability to rise from the ashes again and again. A genetic Resurrection feature.

In addition to the demo yesterday (links from commenters are invited and welcome), Tommy has that three-part series on YouTube. I’m slowly making my way through it, still on Part One.

You can pick up Parts the Second and Third further down on the sidebar.

I’d wanted to get more background on this series, but when The Totalitarians struck, it seemed best to go with what I have in the queue.

Any Brits who can fill in the blanks, any who were at that demo (yesterday? Sunday?), please chime in.

Though Tommy is younger than we are, he’s had the same puncture points, the same epiphanies as we have. He mentions a few in the first section – 9/11 (I would include 7/7 in London which had a huge impact on me), the horror of Beslan, Lee Rigby, etc., ad nauseam.

Salvini: Crazy Like a Fox – Or an Italian

This is why I got a Matteo Salvini t-shirt for the Baron for Christmas:

What is the Italian equivalent for “joie de vivre”?? Salvini has it. His cup is full and running over.

Dr. Turley’s assessment of other leaders’ risks is spot on. TPTB don’t like populists. But regular folks do indeed like the way things are going in countries that don’t want to surrender to the EU machine.

The Dalai Lama Sounds More Christian Than the Pope?

The Dalai Lama spoke in Malmo, telling migrants to go home and help their own people. Racist, racist! Bad Boy. The Left will bury you for Violations of The Official Narrative.

Here’s Dr. Turley with a compare and contrast:

He mentions several others’ views on immigration, including studies by the Biblical scholar, James Hoffmeier. I’ll have to look up this fellow’s views.

Meanwhile, it seems as though The Narrative is beginning to crumble.

Surrender, High Treason and Language Fatigue

Surrender, High Treason and Language Fatigue

by Seneca III

German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier has declared Germany “is a nation of immigrants and will remain so”, asserting: “There are no half or whole Germans, no biological or ‘new’ Germans”…

“Racism and discrimination violate human dignity and damage our democracy,” he continued, claiming: “Immigration has taken place because we have repeatedly asked people to come — a situation which will continue to be true in the future.”…

“There are no Germans who are ‘on probation’ and having to earn their rights in society again and again because their [citizenship] could be revoked on the basis of alleged misconduct,” the president said, insisting that there are “no half or whole, no biological or ‘new’ Germans; there are no first— or second-class citizens, no right or wrong neighbours.”

From: Breitbart London — German President Declares There Are ‘No Native Germans, We Are a Nation of Immigrants’ by Virginia Hale, 25th August 2018

Perusing the global media on a daily basis, one becomes so weary of the endless iterations of the deconstructionist oxymora ‘Racism!’, ‘Hate Crime!’, ‘Human Dignity!’, ‘Discrimination!’, ‘White Privilege!’, ‘Cultural Appropriation!’, ‘Alleged Misconduct!’ ‘Xenophobia!’, ‘Islamophobia’ and the rest of the juvenile effluent spewing from the mouths of the butterfly horde of the emotionally incontinent and intellectually destitute.

That these disinformation peddlers should populate every nook and cranny of Europe’s Political Estate, its Enforcement Arms, Academia and what once was known as the Mainstream Media but is now nothing more than a set of comic books for the vicarious entertainment of the perceptually retarded should profoundly alarm all rational native citizens. Collectively, this assault on and insult to our intelligence is nothing less than the implantation of poisonous mind-worms, the spawn of a malignant ideological plague that eventually will leave the Black Death looking like a minor outbreak of infection.

In the UK the overriding problem is none of those spurious assertions; it is the current imbalance between population density, available space, sustainable resources and a commonality of purpose created by Europeans for their use according to their needs, not as a source of bottomless largesse for the human detritus of every failed, unrelentingly primitive society on planet Earth.

It comes down to understanding the reason why, five hundred years ago, Europe began to race ahead of the rest of the world in the creation of viable self-sustaining nation states, engineering, art and technology. The reason is that the intellectual development of Europe was far more advanced than that of the rest of the global population outside of Oriental Asia, and if we are to make it intact through these times of enforced reverse evolution we must recognize that reality.

Geography, history and chance conjoined to evolve the advanced humans of Europe; the lack of melanin in our skin is an evolutionary adaption to climate. It is not a creator of privilege, but simply a reaction to diminished levels of ultraviolet radiation. It is pointless castigating Europeans for being white; in all situations what goes on between the ears of Homo sapiens sapiens is the defining factor, not the hue of the dermal envelope that contains them.

Geert Wilders Is Refused UK Police Protection for #FreeTommy Demo

There isn’t much direct news on this, but here’s a brief piece found on Twitter:

Geert Wilders’ speech for Tommy Robinson rally sabotaged by May’s Government

The United Kingdom is not free. The British people are a bound and seemingly gagged people.

In yet further efforts by the United Kingdom’s government, now seemingly to pander to the Muslim agenda, Geert Wilders’ speech, scheduled for the 14th at the #FreeTommy march, has to be cancelled.

The Party for Freedom leader tweeted this just now.

“UK Ambassador in The Hague just informed the Dutch authorities that they will not provide for my security in London this Saturday and will not give the Dutch diplomatic police weapon permits either, so, unfortunately, I cannot attend nor speak at the #FreeTommy rally in London.”

Is this another piece of timber in the gallows of which Theresa May’s government will hang? Will this attempt to silence the people, yet again, be the final nail and the impetus for the British people to roar yet louder?

Will Geert’s message be live streamed? Screens at the event? Periscope?

The British government may think they have kept Mr. Wilders’ speech out of London on Saturday. They can only prevent his physical appearance, however. His message will not be silenced.

By now, even the most skeptical of Brits are realising that ‘Tommy’ is the collective of all conservative Brits, here in the UK and beyond, that they are trying to censor and lock away.

What will you do? Join the #FreeTommy march 14 July on Whitehall.

It is to be fervently hoped that Geert Wilders will avail himself of technology to be heard at the demonstration. No doubt he’s working with the Middle East Forum to make that happen. Or with Ezra Levant, perhaps.

Don’t you wonder who else will be silenced?

By the way, there seems to be a balloon of Sadiq Khan flying over London. Or perhaps it was a photoshop job. At any rate, as a Muslim he can’t be portrayed as a pig, as has been done to Donald Trump (ask Trump if he cares), so he’ll have to be a bovine steer. You know, the kine missing their manly appurtenances.

The Cultural Significance of the BurkaBag

The B had this video in his pending list (he’ll add the transcript later). Since his pendings reside on the computer in my office, I get to peek at them. Thus, your early access…it’s only four minutes long, not enough to dissuade me from watching. Besides, there is something about a French woman speaking English; she brings a certain je ne sais quoi to the conversation, non?

The speaker, Céline Pina, outlines the choices of costume facing Islamic women in the West. In other words, choices that wouldn’t confront them had their families stayed in their country of origin. For these bagged women, they might as well have not bothered traveling westward.
