Around the world, very few people are capable of wrapping their heads around the European reaction to the migrant crisis. On the side of the migrants, we have avid displays of barbarism, fanaticism, and aggression; on the side of the Europeans, we have an abject fear of appearing intolerant.
In an out-of-control situation where we would expect people to organise, protest, put up roadblocks and vote en masse for nationalist parties, we are instead subjected to the ridiculous spectacle of meek, effeminate Europeans dressed up in unisex outfits chalking “No to terrorism!” on sidewalks. Most people around the world ask, “Is Europe dead?”
Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov is on the record saying that the European Union is “committing suicide” by letting in the invading hordes from the Middle East and North Africa.
Here we have a flood of people coming in, the majority of them young adult males shirking military service back home, and relatively few of them are qualified to seek asylum.
Most of them are unqualified to do any sort of work within the EU due to lack of literacy, education or work ethic. Many of them would not be trainable in any case, coming as they are from populations bred for physical stamina and disease tolerance rather than intelligence.
Quite a few are Islamic radicals who see themselves as actual colonisers; many more have no qualms about robbing Europeans and raping European women. A few thousand are actual terrorists being sent in to await orders. For most of them, crashing into the EU and freeloading there is part of an excellent adventure, far more exciting than herding cattle or growing millet in their native villages.
European NGOs equip them with inflatable lifeboats and life vests and set them adrift off the coast of Libya or in the Adriatic. European NGO ships then scoop them up and deliver them to ports in Italy, Greece or Spain. And then they get to freeload, for months on end, while more NGO types help them with the paperwork and clog up the courts with lawsuits they file on their behalf.
Truth is often cruel and painful, and yet without truth, with which to understand the true consequences of our actions, we are all but lambs to the slaughter.
Refusal to face the truth by hiding behind a hypocritical, threadbare veil of “kindness” is cowardice. Indeed, cowardice is often on display in Europe, hiding behind another threadbare veil, of “security.”
When ISIS bombed the airport in Brussels, King Philippe and his royal spouse were swiftly evacuated. During medieval times such cowardly behaviour would have cost the monarch his crown, possibly along with his head. But now it is fine for a cowardly nation to have a cowardly king.
Why are the European elites so insistent on ramming “tolerance” down the throats of their citizens and replacing them with imported barbarians?
The newcomers predominantly come from cultures that are the opposite of tolerant and kind. They are mainly characterized by cruelty, passion, clannishness and religious and political fanaticism.
They want to live right here and right now, take pleasure in the beastlier side of human nature, and they see Europe as a treasure chest to be looted. Their cultures hearken back to an earlier era of European history when huge crowds gathered in city squares to watch people being drawn and quartered or burned alive.
The new, emasculated Western European Man is not able to push back against it; nor can their governments, whose leaders are forced to abide by the same cultural codes of tolerance, political correctness, and compulsory kindness.
Looking at the situation from even farther east, from European Russia and the rest of the Eurasian landmass, there is a distinct sense of sadness in watching Europe die.
A large chunk of human history is about to get trampled and despoiled. Having spent the last several decades resurrecting Eastern Christendom after the damage caused to it by the Bolshevik barbarians, they watch with dismay as the relics and ruins of Western Christendom are becoming submerged by a new barbarian wave. Western Europe’s inhabitants may no longer amount to much, but they are still valuable as museum attendants and tour guides.
