Ever since the end of World War II, Europeans have had a fixation in some variation of “hate speech”. It may be something as overt as legally banning neoNazi or neoFascist organizations. It may be prosecuting “revisionist” authors and speakers. Or it may be the general growth, supported by leftist political and academic leaders, of condemning anything not approved as “racism”.
Sadly, rather than directly confront these ideas, and dispose of them by shining a light of critical analysis thereon, and perhaps socially shunning their adherents as dangerous fools or thugs, they instead use the force of government to determine which ideas and advocacy is permissible.
Generally, even deprecating humor, like used so skillfully by, say, Mel Brooks, is set aside for ineffectual forms of censorship. Censorship which only serves to enhance the uncritical mystique of these organizations, authors, movements, and ideas. Worse, the various governments, their abiding elites, and usually, a lick-spittle media, fall in lockstep, with this program.
The convergence of inexorable demographic, economic, and political realities and the growing, militant, and insidious, dependent, underclass presented by the so-called “Syrian Refugee” is creating a huge rift between the native populations of Europe, and their respective governments. Most are not from Syria at all, and most are not, as the term is commonly understood, “refugees”, but why dwell on these little details, right?
This rift has grown to invigorate and legitimize a broad range of “nationalistic” movements, to the horror of the paralyzed establishment organs. The establishment desperately repeats the condemnations of popular sentiments, by labeling them as “racist”, when as often as not, they are nothing of the sort.
Witness the threats and machinations in the face of weakening the idiotic supra-governmental European Union, via “Brexit”. The fact is that this organization, (really, like any government) only serves as a broker to victimizing the stronger and more responsible peoples to the benefit of those less so… with a hefty skim off the top, for good measure.
An important bellwether of this farce is the changing status of the European Jew. Those few Jews who remain in Europe, are increasingly split in two camps:
One; the secular. As in all other lands and ages of the last 3500 years or so, they inexorably fade from history’s stage, via low reproduction, assimilation, and intermarriage. Until they are, simply… gone.
Two; the (at least somewhat) observant. Just as in America, (and Israel, for that matter) they adhere to the principles that make them (to the revulsion of many) “eternal”. They reproduce. They marry among their people. They survive, as a people.
Post-war Europe, out of a sense of guilt, mixed with a desperate need for adaptable, smart, productive, citizens, hitched their wagons to, among others, the few remaining (and, as it happens, largely secular) Jews.
Most of the surviving Jews had left for new lives in America or Israel. The only exception were those held captive by Communism, and ground away mercilessly, in the Soviet Union and its satellites.
Now, with the twin prongs of the “Refugee’s” often violent, and savage, worldview, and the utter ineptitude & hostility, of their governments to address it, made worse by those few legitimate threats within “nationalist” movements, the smart Jews are packing up, and leaving.
Those that remain hide their Jewishness from the public eye, withdraw their children from public schools, avoid synagogue attendance, and often re-double efforts to assimilate into multi-culti, generic, Europeans.
In exchange for this loss, Europe is gaining a huge body of young Jihadis, and welfare recipients, with highly suspect ages – backgrounds – intentions. Sweden has become the Rape Capital of Europe. Denmark is barely better. France and Germany are subject to a wide variety of terror attacks by their new “Culture Enrichers”. Ask the British man on the street about Rotherham.
After two thousand years of abusing Jews, as with the First Muslim Conquests, Europe is receiving a very harsh lesson. And there is little sign that they have learned a thing in all that time.
Although America is not Europe, it shares some of its frailties. Our elites frequently ape the Europeans cultural & political fads. Will we make the same kind of mistakes, as well? Will we also arrange deck-chairs, while _our_ ship slips below the waves?
