Cleansing the Palate of an Unpleasant Islamist Flavor

July 22nd, 2012

Obama, Clinton, and Muslim BrotherhoodAfter posting two disconcerting re-blogs yesterday about the culture of rape enjoyed by our Islamist brethren and about the extent to which Englishmen have been deprived of their freedoms in order to appease increasing numbers of violent Islamists infesting England, I awoke this morning in need of a restorative. I had dreamed about it — this — last night:

Civilized people can behave that way with each other and when they do it is beautiful.

I do not for even a split nanosecond mean to suggest that we sing to our Islamist brethren

And there’s a hand, my trusty fiere !
and gie’s a hand o’ thine !
And we’ll tak a right gude-willy waught,
for auld lang syne.

Those who are out to destroy what remains of our civilization will not give us their hands no matter how nicely we ask or even beg; that has been tried and has not worked. They were not and have not become our trusty friends. Contrary to the fantasies of naive multiculturalists, those who seek to destroy us exist, are fruitful and are multiplying. By no means multiculturalists themselves, they are also succeeding.

This sort of stuff has not succeeded:

Unfortunately, we can’t buy the world a home and “furnish it with love.” Nor can we give the world freedom, justice, beauty, truth, peace or other treasures the values of which are beyond measure.  More valuable than gold, they are not treasures capable of being given. They are fragile and far more easily destroyed than attained. They must be worked for, earned and preserved. We can usefully assist in the process only if a foundation already exists. Even then, we can neither compel nor ensure the process. Nor will our civilization endure if we continue trying to give such treasures away as though they were mere gold while unilaterally deeming our enemies to be our friends. By trying to do so we diminish our own stores, not only of gold but of treasures far more valuable. We may briefly increase the recipients’ stores of gold but will not provide the real treasures we wish them to have but can’t give them.

Rather, those who desire that our own civilization be preserved and restored to its foundations and hence to its former greatness must join hands in making that happen. Failure to succeed must be seen as death.

This was not success.
It merely postponed and worsened the inevitable.

    It’s depressing to reflect on the state of Western culture following years of perhaps well-meaning multi-culturalism. It’s a good thing when it involves people moving from one culture to another who want to become productive members of that culture. It’s something else entirely — an existential threat — when it involves people who simply want to destroy someone else’s culture. There are a number of examples, but Muslims flooding into Western countries is the worst.

    A nation that doesn’t protect and preserve its language, culture, and borders will not survive.

    I’ve always loved that video of the Scottish Parliament singing Auld Lang Syne with Sean Connery and the Queen present. It wouldn’t seem that politicians could hate each other after a unifying experience like that — for a while, anyway.

    I’ve also liked the Coke song since I first heard it, probably in 1971, just because the music and words were great. Never mind that it was a commercial. Hearing it now, it makes me feel very sad. All I could think of is how many Muslims in the world would have loved to plant a bomb in the middle of that group of people.

    Tom,

    I agree about Auld Lang Syne. It has long been one of my favorites. Do you think that there might be a joint session of our Congress for the purpose of signing it?

    As to the Coke song, it’s nice and the words are, indeed, inspiring: much as are many of President Obama’s speeches, particularly during the 2008 campaign. They are also equally unrealistic policy.

    Getting a joint session of Congress together to sing Auld Lang Syne? About as likely as getting them together to sing The Star Spangled Banner or America the Beautiful or God Bless the U.S.A. or The Battle Hymn of the Republic or The Internationale or Three Little Piggies.

    There would be objections to one or all of them by Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, the Congressional Black Caucus, the Tea Party Caucus, the two Muslims and two Buddhists lurking on the back benches of the House, and God knows who else (irony intended). And the ACLU would object to all of them because they’re, well, the ACLU, and a whole bunch of other nut-case organizations would join them, and it would go the the Supreme Court where the Chief Justice would join with the majority to rule that they can sing any damn song they want to as long as they don’t violate the Commerce Clause.

    What’s really stupid is my forlorn hope that those worthless creatures in Congress would get together and do things in the best interest of the country. When pigs fly….
