Islam-inspired mass murder continues apace in Europe, this Christmas season, and on cue some of the continent’s “progressive” leaders call for even more Muslim immigration as the antidote. The prospects for a Europe free of major, violent social conflict diminish by the hour, and there the hour is late.
Haters of western civilization, who grossly magnify its vices while minimizing its virtues, have convinced many unthinking people around them to join in their cultural suicide conspiracy. All evils in the world are linked to the Judeo-Christian ethic, European history, and capitalism, while everyone outside that world is apotheosized. Non-European peoples are lionized, all other faiths are whitewashed, and those whites who resist indoctrination are branded heretics from the true faith. A new religion is amidst us.
Western cultural norms and values stand in resistance to the aims of self-regarded enlightened elites to refashion the world in their image. Islam, with particularly forceful elements now that stand in opposition to Western Culture, is for the elites a welcome enemy of their enemy. Their airy dream is a world led to sunny uplands by self-appointed wise elders, free of the shackles of regressive religion and culture, where the benighted masses are separated from their guns and Bibles and that troublesome Constitution, and where dissent is suppressed for the greater good. But the forces of light and liberty have regrouped, and counteroffensives have gained traction. We leave 2016 in better shape than when we entered it. Christmas is the season of hope.
