Belloc’s Prophecy Bodes Ill for the West: The Muslim Challenge

According to the Wikipedia page (link below) on Hilaire Belloc, he was hostile toward the Jews. As far as I’m concerned that makes him a wise and honest man.

Back in the 1930s when the West was at or near its greatest strength, he clearly saw Islam’s rise and challenge to the West.

Lew Rockwell

GRIFFIN INTERNET SYNDICATE, OCTOBER 25, 2001 – Back in the 1930s, when white men were preparing for another round of mutual slaughter, few of them paid any attention to the Muslim world. They assumed it to be a backward region that history had long since passed by.

One man saw it differently. The great Catholic polemicist Hilaire Belloc, an Englishman of French ancestry, remembered Islam’s past and predicted, in his book The Great Heresies, that it would one day challenge the West again. As late as 1683 its armies had threatened to conquer Europe, penetrating all the way to Vienna; Belloc believed that a great Islamic revival, even in the twentieth century, was altogether possible.

Belloc saw Islam not as an alien religion, but in its origins as a Christian heresy, adopting and adapting certain Christian doctrines (monotheism, the immortality of the soul, final judgment) and rejecting others (original sin, the Incarnation and divinity of Christ, the sacraments). Its simple, rational creed had a powerful appeal to Arabs who had known only the arbitrary gods of grim pagan religions. It swept the Arab world, then made converts — and conquests — far beyond Arabia.

Islam was a militant religion from the start. Mohammed himself conquered the entire Arabian Peninsula in just a few years. The new faith was torn by violent internal divisions even as it continued to spread. But spread it did, with incredible rapidity.

Christians had good reason to fear Islam, which soon conquered Spain and held it for centuries. But because Islam has little attraction for Christians, the West has generally failed to grasp its appeal for others, its profound and permanent hold on the minds of believers. Unlike the Christian West, the Muslim world has never had crises of faith like the Reformation and the Enlightenment.

Islam is a simple religion, easily understood by ordinary people. Its commandments are rigorous but few. When it conquered, its subjugated people often felt more liberated than enslaved, because it often replaced burdensome old bureaucratic governments with relatively undemanding regimes — and low taxes. As long as its authority was respected, Islamic rule was comparatively libertarian. It offered millions relief from their traditional oppression; for example, no Muslim could be a slave.

Belloc distinguishes sharply between Islam and such barbarous conquerors as the Mongol hordes of Genghis Khan. The Mongols were purely destructive; they were known for slaughtering whole cities and making huge pyramids of severed heads.

Such savagery was alien to the Muslims. Where they conquered, daily life usually went on much as before and culture thrived. In many respects the Muslim world was far more civilized than Christian Europe for centuries. The West hated and dreaded Islam, but nobody would have thought of calling it backward.

That contemptuous image came much later, when modern Europe’s science, technology, and — above all — weaponry had eclipsed those of the Arabs. We are apt to forget how recently this development occurred; and, as Belloc warned, it is not irreversible.

Man, especially irreligious man, is apt to equate power and progress. Many of those who say America is “the greatest country on earth” really mean only that America has fantastic military might, capable of annihilating any other country — and some of them, at the moment, are in the mood to do some annihilating.

To the pious Muslim this attitude seems crass and barbaric. He may conclude from it that the decadent West understands only one thing: force. And would he be far wrong?

Belloc admitted that the idea of a new Muslim challenge to the West seemed “fantastic,” but only because the West was “blinded” by “the immediate past.”

Taking a longer view, he saw Islam, though inferior in material power, as having a great advantage: its religious faith was still strong, while the West was losing its religion and consequently its morale. He thought it entirely possible that Islam would catch up technologically, while he doubted that the West would undergo a spiritual revival.

Are we seeing the beginning of the fulfillment of Belloc’s prophecy? If so, the current uproar over Islamic terrorism may turn out to be a mere superficial symptom of a much larger historical drama. The West is still strong, but it is dying. Islam is still weak, but it is growing. Never mind the terrorists; check the birthrate.

Feminism Is Leaving A Wake Of Unhappy, Unmarried, And Childless Women In Its Path

The premise of a piece about women published at the Daily Wire is wrong. Feminism isn’t about advancing women or making them happy. It’s about leftist identity politics to entice women into experimenting with life as a lesbian. Feminism is correctly seen as a plot intended to make women unhappy in order to advance big, tyrannical government that pretends to “protect” women from the evil white male.

Daily Wire

Feminists claim to promote the advancement of women and gender equality, largely via the promotion of so-called sexual liberation, but their movement is leaving a wake of unhappy, unmarried, and childless women in its path, a real problem feminists seemingly refuse to entirely address.

According to a recent study from Yale University researchers, liberated, college educated women are freezing their eggs because they can’t find a man to marry and have children with before their natural childbearing years expire. In the U.K., for instance, one in five women is childless when their natural reproductive years expires, as opposed to one in ten women a mere generation prior.

So what’s to blame for this onslaught of college-educated yet terribly empty women?

The short answer is feminism.

Colleged education today offers a heavy dose of indoctrination. Instead of teaching Home Economics (sewing, cooking, household management, child rearing, etc.) professors teach a pseudointellectual Cultural Marxist view, which really leaves women with hostility toward men and messed up minds.

The author of the study, Marcia Inhorn, an anthropology professor at Yale University, concludes that the common assumption about women putting off children to advance their careers is mere myth. The 150 women undergoing the egg-freezing process in the U.S. and Israel who were extensively interviewed for the study, claimed they were not putting off having a family in order to advance their career, but because they simply couldn’t find a mate.

Inhorn blames the problem on a shortage of college-educated men. “There is a major gap — they are literally missing men. There are not enough college graduates for them. In simple terms, this is about an oversupply of educated women,” she says.

“Most women who are educated would like to have an educated partner. Traditionally women have also wanted to ‘marry up’ to go for someone more successful, financially well off,” adds the researcher.

With white men being demonized in the college classroom, it makes no sense for them to attend a college where they have to confess their white privilege and their guilt for everything that ever went wrong in the world.

With women embracing the hook up culture, why would a man want to pair off with a girl who believes that her liberation lies in her sexual promiscuity?

SLUTS? UHHH, YES.

Inhorn then goes on to blame feminism, sort of. Essentially, because of feminism, liberated women are college-educated but unhappy and alone in exchange, she argues.

“As a feminist I think it’s great that women are doing so well but I think there has been a cost that has been paid,” says Inhorn, adding that women have been left in “sadness and isolation.”

But there’s more going on here. Other experts allude to what Inhorn is unwilling to say: it’s not simply an “oversupply” of liberated women that’s driving this trend, or a liberation-happiness trade-in; it’s men refusing to settle down. And for that, I’d like to thank the feminists’ push for “sexual liberation.”

Let start with the evidence.

First off, some of the women interviewed by Inhorn’s own team even admit that it’s not simply an educational gap; women said they would marry a man who doesn’t have a degree but they can’t find one who wants to marry them.

Then there’s Medical Director of U.K. clinic Create Fertility, Professor Geeta Nargund, who hits the nail on the head (emphasis added): “Women tell us frequently that they are freezing their eggs because the men they meet feel threatened by their success and so unwilling to commit to starting a family together.”

It’s plausible that some men might feel threatened by their woman’s success, but overall that placebo disguises a realistic worry about just how selfish a woman is when she’s fixated on her career and not the family unit.

President of the British Fertility Society, Professor Adam Balen, concurred (emphasis added): “We are seeing some big societal issues, in particular in some social economic groups, with young men not committing.”

(((Balen))) is male-bashing. Blame the male! Yeah, right. He’s a dimwit.

And here’s Executive Director of IVI, Dr. Gillian Lockwood, on Inhorn’s findings: “It exacerbates the problem of men not wanting to ‘settle down’ and start a family until it’s almost too late for the woman to conceive naturally. And if she insists, he’s quite likely to leave for a younger woman whose biological clock isn’t ticking quite so loudly.”

Dr. Lockwood’s “own survey of women doing ‘social’ egg freezing found the overwhelming majority of women having their eggs frozen were doing so because they could not find a partner, or because their own partner would not commit,” notes The Telegraph.

Bingo.

And there’s even more!

Professor Simon Fishel, who founded Care Fertility, explained based on his research (emphasis added): “Almost all of the women in the study who employed egg freezing were heterosexual and wanted to become married mothers. Women lamented the ‘missing men’ in their lives, viewing egg freezing as a way to buy time while on the continuing (online) search for a committed partner.”

Search for a committed partner? I think what he means is you have a group of women who are 5s and 6s looking for a man who’s a 9 or 10. Overvaluing yourself is a real problem in the meat market that is the dating world today.

Over 90% of those surveyed were not freezing their eggs to postpone childbearing to advance a career. Instead, “they were desperately ‘preserving’ their fertility beyond the natural end of their reproductive lives, because they were single without partners to marry,” he said.

So back to the original claim: the so-called sexual liberation of women is indeed screwing women, and not in a good way.

Why would a man rush to settle down and marry someone if he can not only have sex with “liberated” women without a ring, but even cohabitate with them, too? Moreover, the less chaste a woman is, the less preferable she will likely be to a man. Not to mention a woman’s increasing age and creeping near infertility as another massively undesirable trait.

If women demanded more from men, did not sleep around in the name of feminism, men would settle into marriage at an earlier age.

But, nonetheless, these simple truths will be rejected by feminists everywhere, clinging hard to their sad, lonely lives in exchange for empty Feminism, as they accuse any dissenter of being a misogynist.

Our ancestors had it right in those old social guidance films I’ve been publishing here the last few weeks. A number of the women in those old films were good role models–thoughtful, considerate, conservative, chaste, and loyal.

Too many males do hate women today, I believe. The question is whether that hatred (or distaste) is justified.

Trump: “The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive”

TRUMP AND SPEECHWRITER (((STEPHEN MILLER.)))

President Donald Trump broke with the Cultural Marxist interpretation of Western civilization during his speech in Poland.

That speech was written by speechwriter (((Stephen Miller))). It reflects the views of Miller and Stephen Bannon, Trump’s strongly nationalist adviser.

The word “will,” commonly used on “Nazi” websites, was spoken by Trump some 40 times. That’s sure to draw the ire of the media pundits. Furthermore, the speech broke with the wimpy philosophy articulated by President’s Bush and Obama.

All in all, a great day for the West, as it has now found someone, however imperfect, who is willing to defend the West via argumentation.

Ironically, as Trump spoke, battles raged on the streets of Hamburg, Germany, site of the G-20 meeting of world leaders, between police and antifa demonstrators who seek the death of the West.

This speech would be viewed as a major historic speech except that the press and academia hate it so much.

Excerpt from Los Angeles Times

President Trump’s speech in Warsaw cast the fight against terrorism as a clash of civilizations, adopting a framework that his two predecessors had determinedly avoided and linking it to his controversial policies on immigration.

The speech on Thursday offered extended praise for what Trump described as the unique virtues of Western civilization, which he said faced “dire threats.”

Those, he said, emanate from the “south or the east” — apparently a thinly veiled reference to the Islamic world — and could “erase the bonds of culture, faith and tradition that make us who we are.”

“The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive,” he said, one of nearly a dozen times that he invoked the idea of “will” during the course of the approximately 40-minute speech.

Frankfort Becomes First German City with Non-Native Majority

What happens when the former residents of Turdistan decide that the old German castles and other history must be destroyed, just as the Confederate monuments are being destroyed in America?

What happens when the German government of the future is headed by Muslims, who pass laws putting all women in burkas.

Germany has sowed the wind and shall reap the whirlwind.

Breitbart

For the first time, more than half of Frankfurt residents now have a migrant background, according to official data from the city’s Office of Statistics and Elections.

Presenting the figures, which show that 51.2 per cent of people living in Frankfurt have a migrant background, the city’s secretary of integration Sylvia Weber said: “We have minorities with relatively large numbers in Frankfurt but no group with a clear majority.”

Representing 13 per cent of the population, Turks are the city’s largest non-German minority, and 61 per cent of residents who were born abroad are citizens of other European Union (EU) countries.

Entitled Frankfurt Integration and Diversity Monitoring, the 200-page report is to provide a basis for the city to respond to inequalities, for example with regards to employment, education, or housing.

Economically, the report shows big disparities between foreigners and Germans, with the income of 49 per cent of people with roots outside Germany falling below the poverty line compared to 23 per cent amongst natives.

In terms of employment rates, 83 per cent of German men and 78 per cent of German women are in work, figures which drop to 73 per cent and 59 per cent amongst men and women with foreign backgrounds, respectively.

Weber hailed the rate of single motherhood amongst women of foreign origin, which the report showed was significantly higher than that of native Germans in the city, as “a possible sign that female migrants are emancipating themselves”, and called for more research into the subject.

A book published last year which predicted native Germans would soon be reduced to a minority in Frankfurt, Augsburg, and Stuttgart — joining other “majority minority” cities in Europe which include Amsterdam, London, Brussels, and Geneva — celebrates the demographic transformations as providing greater opportunities for “social justice”.

Noting that two-thirds of young people in many of Western Europe’s major cities are of foreign origin, the authors of Super-Diversity: A New Perspective on Integration slammed politicians’ calls for newcomers to assimilate, stating: “If there is no longer an ethnic majority group, everyone will have to adapt to everyone else. Diversity will become the new norm.”

Immigration researcher Jens Schneider and his co-authors Maurice Crul and Frans Lelie admit “this will require one of the largest psychological shifts of our time”. But the authors assert that “soon, everyone living in a large European city will belong to an ethnic minority group, just as they do in New York”, a city they describe as a “vibrant metropolitan melting pot”.

I’ve posted this video before:

Let us mourn. I’d rather be dead than live in a dystopian melting pot.

Conservative French Mayor Puts Pork Back on School Lunch Menus in Name of Secularism

Pork may be back on the school lunch menu in one French town, if the mayor gets his way.

French pigs are going to be unhappy if they’re slaughtered to feed Muslim students pig meat. Muslims are going to be unhappy too. The best solution for the Musloid would be to return to his homeland where consuming pork is removed from his list of worries.

The important point here is that at least one man in France is willing to stand up to the totalitarian ideology that Islam is trying to impose on the West. Where Muslims are in sufficient numbers they begin agitating to make Western society into the Middle East.

Breitbart

The conservative mayor of Chevigny-Saint-Sauveur has announced he will ban alternative school menus that do not include pork to promote secular values in schools.

Mayor Michel Rotger, a member of the conservative Republican party, said the move would promote secularism but would also save the local government money saying ‘alternative menus’ led to too much waste, L’Express reports.

“We are putting an operation in place so the children eat everything and their diets are balanced. There is too much waste so we will teach them to eat meat, be it poultry or pork,” Rotger said.

Parents of children who attend schools in the town, which boasts a population of around 10,000, were informed of the mayor’s proposal in a letter. The letter said the pork menu would promote the “ideas of secularism” and that only those with medical allergies would be able to opt out.

Some have spoken out against the mayor’s plans including Paul Garrigue, president of a group of associations which includes Amnesty International and the League of Human Rights. Garrigue said: “Today, we are talking about secularism in a generally anti-Muslim way.”

“We see secularism as a tool of tolerance and living together and not exclusion,” he said adding that pupils who refuse to eat pork should feel “at ease”.

Party hard, muh Muslims. Enjoy a nice hot dog and cold beer before you head back to your homeland, where such Western pleasures are outawed.

The UN Endorses Soft White Genocide

THE WEST NEEDS MORE WHITE BABIES, NOT MORE MUD MIGRANTS.

The United Nations has published a long report endorsing the idea that the West must be colonized by nonwhite immigrants in order to be saved.

The focus is on the low birthrates in (formerly) white countries. The assumption made is that a declining population is necessarily a problem for a country. I believe that assumption is a false justification for the power elites to use to justify massive third world immigration into the West.

We already see the problems with third world immigrants in Europe and the U.S.–parasitism, terrorism, environmental degradation, and a general sense of unease among the white populations.

The UN’s globalists don’t care about us. They will use economics to try to justify policies that destroy us, with the final outcome a one world government controlled by the (((oligarchs))) and managed by technocrats with no loyalty to nation or blood.

United Nations

Replacement Migration:
Is It a Solution to Declining and Ageing Populations?

United Nations projections indicate that over the next 50 years, the populations of virtually all countries of Europe as well as Japan will face population decline and population ageing. The new challenges of declining and ageing populations will require comprehensive reassessments of many established policies and programmes, including those relating to international migration.

Focusing on these two striking and critical population trends, the report considers replacement migration for eight low-fertility countries (France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Russian Federation, United Kingdom and United States) and two regions (Europe and the European Union). Replacement migration refers to the international migration that a country would need to offset population decline and population ageing resulting from low fertility and mortality rates.

If you click on the link, you can read the report if you have a day or two to spare and your device can read pdf files. It’s chock full of globalist rhetoric that I would characterize as fear mongering.

Obviously, if the technocrats really cared about white countries, the dialog would be about outlawing abortion and policies to increase the white birth rate, not about mass migrations from Africa, India, etc,, into the West.

Three Nog “Asylum Seekers” (Parasites) Rape Woman NINE Times at Town Fair in Germany

MEDHANIE A., ON TRIAL FOR RAPE. CLAIMS HE DINDU NUFFINS.

The sons of Angela Merkel were at it again last year, according to the testimony of Laura G. at the ongoing trial in Germany for her alleged sex attackers.

Generous Angela Merkel, who will never herself know the joys of being gang-raped by a pack of African savages, continues to preach her Communist doctrine of inclusion by giving away the country she is deliberately leading straight into a Nigger-fuxated Hell.

Merkel should hold up a sign herself that reads “Rapefugees Welcome.” She’s not stupid. The evil woman knows exactly what she’s doing and that smile she’s always smiling arises from seeing a plan of destruction come together.

Germany may be past the point of no return. I think it’s safe to say that no matter how this trial turns out, the rapefugees are in no danger of deportation.

Excerpt from Daily Mail

A tearful woman broke down in court in Germany as she alleged that three asylum seekers raped her a total of nine times when she was ambushed at a town fair.

The alleged attack in August 2016 left the 28-year-old Hungarian victim ‘shattered,’ she told a court in Mühlhausen.

Her mobile phone was stolen and the men used it to film their brutal assault which included kicking and punching her and dragging her by her hair, she claims.

The woman said she was forced to have unprotected oral, vaginal and anal sex with three Ethiopian men who she identified in court, The Local reports.

She claimed the men took it in turns to rape her, sometimes acting as a group, and sometimes individually.

The State Court in Mühlhausen heard how one of the three accused, Isaak N. ,23, approached victim Laura G. as she made her way home from the fair.

She told the court that he grabbed her by the arm and said; ‘We are going to have sex now.’

When she tried to run he grabbed her, slapped her to the ground and proceeded to pull her trousers down.

She managed to get to her feet and run – only into the arms of accomplices Medhanie A., 29, and David T., 22.

‘The victim was then dragged under a viaduct, her mouth kept shut in order to silence her cries,’ said the prosecution.

The men were arrested the next day. DNA from two of them matched up with DNA collected by police.

‘Every one of them raped me three times,’ she sobbed in court on Monday.

Her testimony was cut short due to her emotional state and will be continued on another day.

Earlier in the trial Isaak N. had admitted having sex with the woman, but said the encounter had been consensual.

ISAAK N. CLAIMS CONSENSUAL SEX WITH LAURA G.

DAVID T., DINDU NUFFINS.

The three apes will not be executed or even castrated. In Merkel’s Germany, they’ll be given cars, homes, phones, a job currently being done by a citizen, and a membership in an online dating club.

Be happy with your work, says the Wicked Witch of the West.

ANGELA MERKEL. WHEN YOU LOOK AT WHAT YOU’VE DONE AND IT MAKES YOU HAPPY.
