It takes two to tango

But only one party to wage war. This is honest, but remarkably stupid commentary on the current European situation from the Mayor of London:
About 10 years ago, the whole Danish cartoon controversy blew up – and I remember distinctly concluding that I would never have published them in The Spectator, which I edited, not just because they were gratuitously inflammatory, but because I didn’t see how I could justify my decision to the widows and orphans of my staff, in the event of an attack on our offices (and I note that one of the German publications to use the Charlie Hebdo cartoons has just been fire-bombed).

It is essential to admit this element of fear (and several editors have been candid enough to do so), because fear is a very bad and corrosive thing. Fear leads to anger. Fear leads to mistrust. Fear can make you irrational, and in the case of Islamist terrorism, the resulting fear can obviously encourage prejudice and division. Fear leads to hatred – and that is exactly what those terrorists hope to provoke. They want to see anti-Muslim marches of the kind that are now appearing in Germany; they want an anti-Muslim backlash; they want war; and it would be absolutely fatal if we were to allow ourselves to fall for it.
Imagine if, instead of his famous call to "fight them on the beaches", Winston Churchill had said something like this back in 1940. "Fear leads to hatred and that is exactly what the Nazis hope to provoke. They want to see us sending out warships to guard the Channel. They want an anti-German backlash; they want war and it would be absolutely fatal if we were to allow ourselves to fall for it."

The astonishing thing is that Boris Johnson knows his history. He and other self-admitted cowards know that Chamberlain was wrong to attempt to appease Hitler, just as FDR was wrong to attempt to appease Stalin, and yet they are making precisely the same mistake by trying to pretend that Islam can be won over if they are sufficiently accommodating.

Everything about the multicultural status quo is a lie. The headline in the Telegraph says: "Paris march of unity: after a minute's silence the crowd roared 'We are not afraid!'"

They lie. They are most certainly afraid. They are afraid of the Muslims in their midst, and they are afraid of the nationalist forces that are rising. They are right to be afraid, because it is primarily their fault that the Reconquista 2.0 is now both necessary and inevitable.

This reminds me of quote on fear from another great philosopher...

"Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering."
- Yoda

I dont think the Muslims do want to see marches, or a backlash. A war is much easier to win if the other side isnt fighting back. What they would want is whats already happening - the weak leaders of tbe West desperately trying to pretend that the war hasnt already begun.

Apollo,
I tend to agree with you. In my personal dealings with muslims (I grew up in Africa in a truly multicultural environment) though they ranged from the zealots to the friendly, I generally noted that fairness, Western concepts of mercy and fair play and so on were taken as weakness. After I broke my hand on one of their faces though, even in groups of half a dozen or more they dispersed, cowed or silently slunk off, though they despised me.
Each subset of humans has it peculiar tendencies, but the Islamic way, that is to be basically a terrorist (regardless of scale of the actual terrorism) is deeply ingrained. The best, quickest and easiest way to check their bullshit is with a mailed fist. If you read the book by Harold Lamb, deeply researched from primary sources, which being called "the crusades" covers the first and original crusade, clearly indicates that this has not changed in a thousand years.
In the context of the fact that Islam is essentially a religion of fear, as opposed to Christianity, which is essentially a religion of love and forgiveness, it makes sense.
Fear is always an illusion. It is always a lie. And it can only lead to darkness. You can quote Yoda somewhat humorously, but it remains a true fact, regardless of the fact that Yoda is a fictional character.

Anonymous meh January 11, 2015 9:12 PM  

On the contrary, if there are bad things out there that mean you harm, then fear is very rational, and very truthful, and very necessary if it leads you to take the necessary steps to defend yourself. Fear is only bad if you deny it and/or let it paralyze you.

Saying that "Fear is always an illusion. It is always a lie. And it can only lead to darkness." is itself a lie, because it is not true. God/Nature gave us a capacity for fear for a very good reason. Don't ignore it or deny it: use it for good.

Anonymous Anonymous January 11, 2015 9:17 PM  

Agree with your sentiments but I wish you wouldn't use the second war analogy.

The muslims are not Nazi Germany, They are a bit less evil and much less competent. They would not be a danger if we did not have mass immigration and European states had the will to impose energy conservation to reduce dependence of foreign oil.

For right wingers it is always May 1940, and any foreign regime must be crushed or we will be overrun.

For left wingers is is always 1933 and the govt is using the Reichstag fire to crush dissent.

The west has already lost, it will not take much for them to collapse in a heap before their new masters as this is not a struggles between Christianity and Islam but rather a contest between a feminized secular atheistic west and a masculine Muslim east. The west has no real beliefs to defend any more an so will not fight against them but rather seek ways to slwoly submit to their new masters.

Fear leads to hatred – and that is exactly what those terrorists hope to provoke.

To what end? It's one thing to try to inspire a backlash to garner political sympathy if you're trying to get a law passed or you're trying to get some sort of favorable treatment from the government. But these guys will be satisfied with nothing less than complete submission by the 5/6 of France that isn't Muslim. They're playing with fire - if you're going to take over a country like that you can't show your hand until you have the power to win.

At this rate the Muslims will be either killed or driven from France. And the French will be very, very sorry Generations from now. They may even teach their children they did a bad thing and promise never to do it again. But the Muslim problem will be a lot less immediate to those children, as they won't have any classmates named Mohammed. It will be much the same way people in the US remember the native Americans.

At least Britain sent the prime minister. Americans were a no-show in Paris, basically. Obama's team didn't really send anybody to the Washington, DC "I am Charlie" rally, either. Obama and Biden both took the day off, no events scheduled. That's odd. What an easy way to score cheap points with a unity posture or two.

And the no-shows do kind of erode the already shallow sense of unity. One can only hope these progressives continue to bungle their way into the electoral defeat they so richly deserve.

All of you have been "enriched" by raw sewage from the media. The World and Reality is the opposite of what they say it is. Islam is not strong, it is weak. It was withering away on the vine through the sclerotic materialism of the West. The Ayatollah and the mullahs and the Taliban and the Muslim Brotherhood are an Islamic attempt at an Inquisition to save a dying culture. Like most empires, Islam was only strong while it was expanding. When it lost in Europe, it had nowhere to go.
The Industrialization of the West brought the British and French to Islam where they rolled over the Turban Brigades as easily as the Nazis rolled into Poland. Islam was a beaten slave after World War One saw the end of the Ottoman Turks.
I do not expect Islam to recover. Islam has never been united, and the different tribes will never work together now. Even as American Hellfire missiles rained down on them, the Taliban never reached out to the Muslim Brotherhood or the Ayatollah of Iran. Anyone who believes they will bow to Globalism should note they will not even break bread with each other.
Globalism will never work. Outside of the White Western World, intertribal international cooperation is inconceivable under any circumstances. Only with Western Colonialism could anything like Globalism even be attempted, but these idiots want to destroy the West to get Globalism? Madness is an understatement for anything this STUPID.

This so-called war on the west supposedly being waged by "Islam" sure isn't dong a very good job. I mean, really, where is this war besides a few miniscule attacks by deranged lunatics.

Meanwhile, 99.99% of Muslims in Europe take no part in this "war". Instead they raise families, go to work, vote, work, pray and are the same as the Christians and secularists.

Those calling for and hoping for the good people of the West to rise up and harm Muslims and Jews embrace their own simple brand of vicious ignorance and call it a culture war. or "Reconquista". It is amusing that they think they have an army to lead.

When nationalists get elected by tiny margins here and there they are going to find their desire to return to gassing people that don't look like them won't be supported by many people....and they will fade away.

The only good thing about the vicious ignorant hostages to hate coming out publicly and cheering a would be attack on Muslims and Jews is that we know who they are.

Regarding the matter of dumb Moslems making their move too soon, I understand that Blacks and Mexicans in their ghettos and barrios often tend to believe that the whole city or state looks like their little corner. If everywhere you look you see your own kind, you think you're winning. It is similar to those Whites who think that, since it's all White in their town or county, race and immigration are not problems.
Segregated Third World slums in White countries both encourage the Darks to think they're stronger than they are, and Natives to think that the Darks are not a problem. I think that both groups will be surprised. Lots of Northerners thought that Jim Crow segregation down South was awful, until they got their own Negroes.

The Hare said, "Oh, how I have longed to see this day, in which the weak shall take their place with impunity by the side of the strong." And after the Hare said this, he ran for his life.

That kind of fear that prevents you from learning, defending and improving yourself, is always useless. And in essence, excepting the instinctive reaction in the heat of the moment, all fear is of that kind. Understanding that is important. I may not be explaining this in sufficient detail, and the nomenclature would need some refinement, but insofar as fear prevents you from acting, it is always a useless emotion.

Blowback in the sense that these men were probably trained by the CIA as Syrian rebels. There is a video of the black terrorist in front of an ISIS flag. It is been pointed out in a number of articles that at least two of the terrorist returned from Syria in August or September.

Israel has treated a number of Syrian rebels in their hospitals. Israel has also given air support to Syrian rebels. Don't have evidence for it, but I am sure that Saudi vetted their involvement and support of Syrian rebels with both Israel and the US. Syrian destabilization has been a long term objective of Israel and the Zionist (see Project for a New American Century: Securing the Realm)

Yes, ICJ is mostly impotent, but Israel tried in absentia on the World stage for war crimes is a bit of public relations success for the Palestinians that the ever sensitive Israeli and Zionist interest will not accept.

More than "radical Islam," more than a few spectacular terrorist incidents:

http://www.unz.com/pfrost/french-lesson/
(...)
The attack on Charlie Hebdo is not an isolated incident. It’s part of a worsening trend of violence by people described as jeunes [youths] or simply not described at all. That was not the case in the recent attack; the victims were too well known. But it is generally the case, and this conspiracy of silence has become something of a social norm, particularly in the media.

Yet statistics do exist, notably those compiled by the Gendarmerie. According to French criminologist Xavier Raufer:

The criminality we are talking about is the kind that is making life unbearable for the population: burglaries, thefts of all sorts, assaults, violent thefts without firearms, etc. In these specific cases, 7 out of 10 of these crimes are committed by people who in one way or another have an immigrant background, either directly (first generation on French territory, with or without a residence permit) or indirectly (second generation). (Chevrier and Raufer, 2014)

The word “immigrant” is misleading. Many if not most are French-born, and they tend to come much more from some immigrant groups than from others. In general, they are young men of North African or sub-Saharan African background, plus smaller numbers of Roma and Albanians.

This criminality, when not being denied, is usually put down to social marginalization and lack of integration. Yet the reverse is closer to the truth. The typical French person is an individual in a sea of individuals, whereas immigrant communities enjoy strong social networks and a keen sense of solidarity. This is one of the reasons given why the targets of the crime wave are so often Français de souche [old-stock French]. “Whites don’t stick up for each other.”

Marching right next to Francois Hollande: Ali Bongo of Gabon, who recently "suspended" 3 newspapers. 1 for SATIRE.

Leading the Paris "unity rally": by my count, at least 3 people who want to legally ban criticism of Islam.


All is proceeding as I have foreseen it.

Hygate,
I agree. You will note I simply said insofar as fear does not allow you to act rationally it is a useless emotion and/or it leads to the dark side. I didn't say you can always avoid feeling it.

Just as in Australia, "France" is unbowed, "France" is strong and brave, "France" will not be intimidated into altering its pro-mass-immigration and anti-white policies. Defending the nation would mean the terrorists win, and that we will never allow!

Whatever happens,
They have got
The megaphone,
And we have not.

But that's all they've got. Certainly not a rational argument or viable policies.

I agree. Fear is a rational reaction to danger. Courage is acting in an appropriate manner despite feeling fear.

In my news feed it seems the liberated feminist JK Rowling is feuding with Rupert Murdoch over his cancer statement. What a complete joke the progtards are. Someone should ask Rowling if she thinks that Islam should liberalize itself with the usual progressive proscriptions. All the progressives should be asked if Islam should liberalize itself, set the progs up against the Muslims.

Fear leads to hatred – and that is exactly what those terrorists hope to provoke.

What nonsense. They hope to provoke conversion, submission, or death. That's all. They don't care a bit whether you hate them, as long as you do one of those three things.

I'm reminded of the scene in Independence Day, where the easy-going President Doormat, trying to make peace with the aliens who just killed millions of humans without provocation, asks, "What is it you want us to do?" and the alien responds, "Die."

That's all, just "Die." We want the whole planet; you're in the way; end of story.

WSRA has a link to a couple of relevant John Robb articles.

The first: France Declares War on Islam offers the strategic situation for France regarding its no-go zones of "vibrant cultural enrichment" (it is, imho, misguided as it sees the only actors as the terrorists and the state and does not consiider the French rejecting their elected leaders and taking matters into their own hands).

The second: The Red Queen's Trap is an interesting model.

If you are not familiar with Robb, he is an interesting thinker who is worth a slice of your time.

I wonder what sentences judges might hand down at future international criminal tribunals on those who will be partially but directly responsible for millions of deaths from starvation, famine and disease in decades ahead. I put [their climate change denial] in a similar moral category to Holocaust denial – except that this time the Holocaust is yet to come, and we still have time to avoid it. Those who try to ensure we don’t will one day have to answer for their crimes. –Mark Lynas, 19 May 2006

Of course, we now have a set of real killers, both those Muslims who do it directly (both ISIS and others) along with non Muslims who use drones.

One other data point.

Nobody from the Churchill bust returning Obama administration attended the unity rally. My gut tells me this is Obama dropping the mask and openly siding with "his people" the muslims.

The taqiyya will continue, and the platitudes he mutters will include words and phrases like "our common values", "our shared values", "who we are as a people" etc. It is important to view this through the lens of him addressing Muslims and not Americans.

When this is done, his actions pair up nicely with his words and the confusion that is present in many regarding Obama's "incompetence" and "tone deafness" vanishes.


Obama is a Marxist. Obama is a Muslim. Both idealogies embrace lying as a means to thier nefarious ends.

Imagine if, instead of his famous call to "fight them on the beaches", Winston Churchill had said something like this back in 1940. "Fear leads to hatred and that is exactly what the Nazis hope to provoke. They want to see us sending out warships to guard the Channel. They want an anti-German backlash; they want war and it would be absolutely fatal if we were to allow ourselves to fall for it."

Had this happened, it's entirely possible that England would be better off today.

I wrote a piece of doggerel back in college that had the line, "Two it takes to make a fight/But one to make a beating." I then found the kind of sentiment much more eloquently expressed in Kipling's The Gods of the Copybook Headings:

When the Cambrian measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace.
They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.
But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: "Stick to the Devil you know."


Over the last several months of reading Vox Day, I've come to appreciate how much he wants to point out what is true, not merely what we would wish to be true. Pieces like this echo the last two stanzas of Kipling's poem:

As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man
There are only four things certain since Social Progress began.
That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
And the burnt Fool's bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire;

And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!

Interesting. You'd think some bleeding heart citizen-of-the-world would be all over the Euro-weenie unity parade.

Unless: Obama is not an internationalist. He's just a provincial Black Muslim not particularly sympathetic to the old white devils reviling the Prophet in Paris.

@slarrow - Kipling was timeless wisdom:

The Stranger within my gate,
He may be true or kind,
But he does not talk my talk--
I cannot feel his mind.
I see the face and the eyes and the mouth,
But not the soul behind.

The men of my own stock,
They may do ill or well,
But they tell the lies I am wanted to,
They are used to the lies I tell;
And we do not need interpreters
When we go to buy or sell.

The Stranger within my gates,
He may be evil or good,
But I cannot tell what powers control--
What reasons sway his mood;
Nor when the Gods of his far-off land
Shall repossess his blood...

I could respect a campaign calling for the total annihilation of the threat, but this "Je suis Charlie" strength in numbers security blanket is about as idiotic and meaningless as the "Bring back our girls" campaign was effective. Bravery and stupidity are not mutually exclusive and smirking, "neener-neener...now, go away or I shall taunt you repeatedly" in the face of a demonstrated remorseless murderer with a gun to your head may be brave, but it is also incredibly stupid and not tantamount to going down swinging. Attempting to effect eradication of the threat, even if you know you are likely to be unsuccessful, is the only brave and reasonable response. Simply insisting that you will not be phased and will continue to do whatever it is you've been doing isn't going to work no matter how many millions of people you get to stand in solidarity with you.

Hello Vox. Serious question for you...what do you, as a Christian, believe is a suitable punishment for blasphemy (in a Christian context) and how do you view and/or feel about blasphemous images, art, films etc? Or do you subscribe to the view that such things are just unpleasant bursts of atheistic rebellion in a post Christian world and just have to be accepted? You talk about another Reconquista on numerous occasions but will it be a fully secular post religious (indeed contemptuous of religion) West that succeeds, in which case won't they just turn on the people who hold the last vestiges of faith...i.e. people like you? Thanks for answering (if you do.)

"But you see, the Seleka rebels were only a few muslims, not at all representative of the many many peaceful muslims in CAR. Yet the Christians attack in an indiscriminate backlash rather than using the courts to dispense justice to the perpetrators, should they be found. Clearly this must be condemned in the strongest terms."

Yes, attempt to get justice from the courts established after the Seleka rebels toppled Bozize's government.

When this war is fought it is not the enemy you must watch but the traitors behind, who like the Yippies who forced the retreat in Vietnam want to reduce your victories and amplify your defeat, to undermine your morale and stifle support that might lift your hearts. The enemy at your gates who open the door for the terrorists who wait in the shadows and the enemies in the media that call you names for naming the threats.
How do you fight when the enemy who strikes is not the one who shoots you in the streets and bombs you on the buses and trains, but the ones who stab you in the back by stealing your taxes and feeding the terrorists, who undermine your religion and proselytize the Muslims' and tell your women and children your hate is vile for wanting to prevent their rape and murder?
While Batman chases madmen like the Joker through the shadows of Gotham City at night, bleeding hearts let them loose when he sends them to court and prison. They feed them at the asylums and tell the people of Gotham that the Bat is the real enemy and that the psychopathic killers are misunderstood.
Judge Dredd knows. He kills the killers, and afterwards kills their mad enablers. Mega-City One is clean of crime because the blood of the guilty flow not just through the streets but also the corridors of power.
I am the Law!

Tim Shmiggen: "FDR attempted to appease Stalin?"

An arguable opinion, as all such constructions are, but I think there's truth in it.

You have to look past what people did a little to the attitude that they took. I'm a defender of Neville Chamberlain, even though finally he proved wrong about Hitler being ready to settle for peace and Churchill was right all along. Chamberlain was in no way as bad as the anti-white sellouts we have today; he was just mistaken. And he did not entirely give away the store; his position was not "peace at absolutely any price, and if Hitler alters our deal, let's just pray he doesn't alter it yet again and again and again," otherwise he would not ultimately declared war after all his hopes of peace had been brought to ruin. So if you were a fanatic you could quibble this to death: "was he appeasing, or was he negotiating and warning" etc. But in common sense, I think it's better just to admit that his attitude fits the frame. Yes he attempted to appease Hitler.

Read Churchill at War 1940-45 by Lord Moran (Sir Charles Wilson); it's a short and easy read, and gives you a strong sense of what the people were like.

FDR attempted to appease Stalin. When he died and Harry Truman took over, who was not at all about appeasing Stalin, the people who were aware what was going on basically thought: "Thank God! About time!"

They couldn't say that, because it would have been inhuman. But this was the situation. FDR and Stalin were double-teaming Churchill as the two noble progressives against the one evil imperialist. FDR really thought he was winning over the Russians by being so reasonable. Stalin knew better. A horrible situation.
