Buchanan: The Dark Side of Diversity
Human Events ^ | April 26, 2013 | Patrick J. Buchanan

Posted on 04/26/2013 5:54:02 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

“I do not know the method of drawing up an indictment against a whole people,” said Edmund Burke of the rebellious Americans.

The same holds true of Islam, the majority faith of 49 nations from Morocco to Indonesia, a religion that 1.6 billion people profess.

Yet, some assertions appear true.

Islam is growing in militancy and intolerance, evolving again into a fighting faith, and spreading not only through proselytizing, but violence.

How to justify the charge of intolerance?

The Taliban blew up the Bamiyan Buddhas. The Sufi shrines of Timbuktu were blown up by Ansar Dine. In Saudi Arabia, Iran and Afghanistan, Christian converts face the death sentence.

In Nigeria, the Boko Haram attacks churches and kills Christians, as in Ethiopia and the Sudan, where the south seceded over the persecution.

Egyptian Copts are under siege. Assyrian and Chaldean Christians in Iraq have seen churches pillaged, priests murdered. In Indonesia, churches are being shut on the demand of Islamists. Sharia law is being demanded by militants across the Middle East, as Christianity is exterminated in its cradle.

Has Islam become again a fighting faith?

Chechnya, Dagestan and Ingushetia are the sites of Islamist uprisings using terror to rip these statelets from Russia. Muslim Uighurs are fighting to tear off a chunk of China and create an East Turkestan. Muslim Malays in south Thailand have fought a decade-long war of secession. Albania has acquired two sister Muslim states in Europe, Bosnia and Kosovo, both born in blood. “Islam has bloody borders,” wrote the late Samuel Huntington. They are bloodier today.....

Islam is Satans answer to Christianity. It’s time it was viewed as such, but being that we have a RINO party and a flat out Treason party, nothing is done about it which is why we need a new party. I give good speeches, talk good (I am a bass voice, talk like James Earl Jones) and I look good - I am white and look like Buddy Holly and I have mega-balls. How can I start?

I think you may be right. I’m the same age as the thrice admitted twice unconstitutionally elected foreign born Kenyan, and I would give my left nut to debate that douchebag. I would destroy him in mere minutes. I need to get into Facebook and all that other crap.

First, as it is our presence in their world that enrages so many, we should end our interventions, shut down the empire and let Muslim rulers deal with Muslim radicals.

As usual, Pat said much that was right. And, then, as Pst is prone to do, he drops this turd in the punchbowl.

He somehow overlooks the fact we are in the Muslim world for three reasons:

1. We have legitimate interests there -- primarily, the free flow of oil at market prices.

2. We were invited. The Saudis, defenders of the holy shrines of Mecca and Medina, invited the U.S. to base in Saudi Arabia in order to defend the kingdom against the predations of Saddam Hussein.

3. Some of them, without provocation, killed 3,000 of our countrymen -- warranting a deadly response.

In this respect, Pat shares an emotion with the jihadis -- all of these facts annoy him.

It has not “become”, nor is it “evolving into”. It is, it was. Satan’s response to Christianity.

It has a 1400 year history of violence.

For the unknowing, go see Dr. Bill Warner for a excellent summary on Youtube, in “why we are afraid, a 1400 year secret”

Since a request for comments was posted, here's my comment on Islam.

Islam is a blend of governmental system, war cult, and a perversion of Judao-Christian religious beliefs. It mandates war against the non-Muslim, and further demands the individual believer to kill Jews, Christians, and all who will not submit to Islam.

Enough of Islamic history - 1,400 years of continuous war against non-Muslims is sufficient to demonstrate that Islam means what it preaches. Islam preaches war, slavery, torture, rape, bestiality, buggery, sodomizing young boys, death in the most cruel of manners, ad nauseam.

Islam has claimed it will force all of the world to submit to Islam or be killed or enslaved.

Americans don't do submission at all well.

Therefore, remember the military concept, “Honor the threat.” Also remember that both Judaism and Christianity agree on the legality and morality of both self defense and of preventative war.

Islam is a very vulnerable social system in that it is predicated on God (Allah) having established Mecca as his earthly abode, and the Kaaba in particular.

Nuke it - Islam and Allah will thus be shown to be powerless to prevent the destruction of its “holy place/holy rock.

Then do to the Muslims what they did to the non-Muslims. Kill Muslims, destroy all mosques & madrasses complete with their imams and books.

Erase Islam - or Islam will erase us.

This is the choice Islam and Muslims are forcing upon us. Their religion is their own death warrant.

Time to play Cowboys and Muslims. Actually, it is long past time ... 1,400 years to be more specific.

Is there a lighter side to diversity?

My perception of the liberal fixation on “diversity” is that we are seeing something that is deeply rooted in their secular religion. If you visit just what kind of people are the target of the efforts to “diversity”, you can place on a continuum on one side, Caucasians, Anglo-Saxons, WASPs, Christians and conservative Christians. On the other side you place liberals, then “people of color”, then people of color with nativist religions and then people of color who are radical liberals, finally people who champion Che.

This is projection of self-loathing, first of western values, more so of cultural-Christian values, even more of Christian religious values and finally of God and everything He teaches in Scripture that can’t be re imagined in a liberal context.

As evidence of this, look at who is “black”. A Nobel poet, Tony Morrison, call Bill Clinton our first black president. Our current president has a Caucasian mother, yet he tells us in his autobiography that he decided in his late youth to be “black”. And a staff writer for Time Magazine called Justice Clarence Thomas one of the scariest white people in Washington. If “black” is really “liberal” than diversity is far more about ideology than about genetics.

Liberals seem to be artfully marginalizing anyone who has any allegiance to God’s values, and they are doing it under the cover of being inclusive to people of all races and cultures. Except, if you look closely, when people who talk “diversity” get to express their private choices about who to hire or promote, they choose liberals and exclude conservatives. More proof can be seen in the fact that some college faculties have fewer than 5% who voted in the last election for a Republican. And major media outlets strain to have a conservative. Even when they do, too often that person is a CINO (Conservative in name only).

Islam is mired in the Seventh Century. Churchill summed it up well, as follows:
“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity.
The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property - either as a child, a wife, or a concubine - must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the faith: all know how to die but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.”

Destruction of Mecca (Medina, as well) was suggested as a prelude. Once Muslims see their ‘God’ abode destroyed, their central belief in the omnipotence of Allah will be justifiably shaken.

Then follow the advice of Saint Ann, well mostly follow it. Rather than Saint Ann’s invade them, Convert them, or kill them” I suggest the ‘death from above’ approach. After the rubble of Mecca and Medina stop bouncing, tell Muslims we will expect them to convert and then expunge all signs if Islam.

Their response? “Oh, Esteemed Ones, we agree with everything you have every done or thought in your entire lives.”

Do remember this historic fact, true when MadMo was raping killing and stealing and just as true now:
“The Muslim understands best power and vengeance.”

Know your enemy, honor his threats, develop the backbone to kill before they kill you.

And they Will force you to either submit to them or kill them.

Got submission?

The destruction of Mecca is barely a blip in your plan. It will not work, anymore than destroying any other religious center will destroy any religion. Human nature does not work that way.

Subjugating Muslim lands and peoples is an entirely different concept and probably wasteful, but a far different project than destroying Mecca.

I’m no fan of Islam, it is indeed built on flawed foundations, however eradicating it from the World is more than a bridge too far for America. Destroying all of radical Islam and insisting that any Islamic nation either behave or face the consequences is a more attainable goal but still quite a reach.

In any event nothing like this will happen with democrats in the White House and probably not with republicans there.

I can think of one --- reason.

It might get their attention if it is unequivocally clear that it is only a first step. How many steps follow is entirely up to them.

I like to be an optimist, even though I was tempted to say 'they are not suicidal,' and then I had to laugh.

I am sorry to hear about your advancing senility or your serious case of cognitive dissonance.

Any serious study of historical islam would convince the most retarded delusional imbecile (or infant) that muslims are not now, nor have ever been ruled by what civilized modern adults can grasp as 'human nature.'

They are not referred to as 'koranimals' by accident.

“The destruction of Mecca is barely a blip in your plan. It will not work, anymore than destroying any other religious center will destroy any religion. Human nature does not work that way.”

The above is simply not historically demonstrated. As a matter of fact, Muslims do destroy other religious buildings, symbols, burn other religious books, kill off other religious leaders, kill off those who do not submit to Islam.

The success of the spread of Islam by the sword is proof my proposed destruction of Islam WOULD succeed.

Want proof from out time and in our America?

Note that the Muslims always build a Mosque on the site of what they call a victory over the “kufir” (the unclean who refuse to submit to Islam).

Now, think about the Victory Mosque at the 9/11 site!

They won a great victory, they built a Mosque to celebrate that victory.

Note carefully: Both American citizens and our politicians allowed it to be built.

Now can you understand why out only choice, forced upon us by the nature of Islam is: “ISLAM DELENDA EST”?

I’d settle for just ending, and actually prohibiting Muslim immigration. The US and the rest of the Western World should do this.

There’s not much they can do to us if we don’t allow them to enter in the first place.

“Nuke it - Islam and Allah will thus be shown to be powerless to prevent the destruction of its “holy place/holy rock.”

It really would be just that easy. Vaporize that stupid rock and the whole evil edifice would collapse.

Most in the West won’t believe it because they can’t imagine a major world religion being contingent on a rock. An idol. But it is.

We were invited. The Saudis, defenders of the holy shrines of Mecca and Medina, invited the U.S. to base in Saudi Arabia in order to defend the kingdom against the predations of Saddam Hussein.

True - but just because someone invites use doesn't mean we have to go. I myself have had to live for over 40 years before I discovered the basic truth that I do not have any obligation to associate with people I find objectionable.

Especially Jewish ones would be more accurate.

The recent Salon article by the David Sirota (Jew and former AIPAC officer) who hoped the Boston bombings could be pinned on a White Christian is a good example (of many more I could post). They have become quite open about their hatred of White Christians.

Fine and dandy.

But how would you have felt about the truth of a malignant dictator, Saddam Hussein, controlling 50% of the world's oil production?

Would that not be "objectionable"?
