The elites of the West have turned against the West. They have concluded that the West is indefensible, and undefendable - indefensible because of the evils that they perceive in it, undefendable because of the decadence that they see, against lean, mean, adversaries, such as, in previous generations, Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia, with their centrally planned economies that they elites saw as more rational than the West’s, and the current crop of Islamic Jihadist, who are willing to commit suicide while murdering innocent people.
The problem is that these elites have used their positions of authority to bring large segments of the populations of the West to their way of thinking, to the point that like minded politicians can be elected, or appointed, to positions of power.
We now have people in positions of political power who have made common cause with the sworn enemies of the West. They did so in their time with Nazi Germany, and Soviet Russia, who inconveniently collapsed under pressure, military, as well as economic and political, from the West. But that was a time when there were still some political leaders in the West with the gonads to oppose them. I am sad to say that I do not see that happenning as we face the assault by the Jihadists.
The good news is only 15% of the immigrants are openly hostile. The bad news is the other 85% doesn't care about the other 15%'s hostility.
The countries of Europe have become speakers of two languages; native tongue and Arabic. The same thing is happening in America only it is English and Spanish. Americans would never allow the Europeans out do us so, we will naturally take on a third.
When you have democrats in Congress actually thinking out loud that foreign enemy combatants should have the same constitutionally rights as a US CITIZEN and they aren't run out of town on rail tarred and feathered, it doesn't bode well for us.
The Islamist will use our own constitution to enslave us for gutless politicians who only care about power
Very good article by Theodore Dalrymple. Thanks for posting.
Waiting NOW (National Organization of Women) to to hear from MEOW (Mid East Organization of Women) or EOW (Europeon Organization of Women). /sarcasm
LOL. At least the Poles share the same basic culture and religious beliefs. Europe will emerge out of this threat better than we will. There is a reason so many different countries and languages have survived in Europe for centuries. They will not permit their culture to be destroyed without a fight. And they won't allow the invaders to use their political system against them. And there will be no equivalent of the ACLU.
Here’s a related addition to your thread. “How the West Was Lost” is mentioned in the second link. bttt

In and around the American ghetto culture, women have the opportunity to live a quasi-normal life, with education, jobs, and -- sans husband -- kids. Thank goodness Sharia law hasn't arrived here yet.
