Skip to comments.On Vikings and Victims: White-Guilt in Context
Posted on 12/14/2008 1:17:55 AM PST by neverdem
All-permeating "white-guilt" did not appear out of thin air. It has taken a sustained propaganda effort, a wide-ranging mobilization of education and culture, to inculcate and sustain self-loathing among American Caucasians. Like the Coca-Cola TM brand, white-guilt needs endless repetition to remain struck in the thought and behavioral processes of the masses.
Raymond Ibrahim ... Is a Coptic Christian and mostly posts at Jihad Watch. Very good article
You hit it right on the button.
Whatever sins White people may have,they pale when you look at what other races have done. The Chinese alone have killed millions of thier own people, and Africa is much better off now that the Blacks ran off the whites in Rhodeisa. And India sucks now that the Brits left.
The American Indians have a long history of genocide when they fought other tribes.
Inuit traditions say they got along with their Greenland Norse neighbors most of the time though there were clashes. The Inuit vehemently deny they wiped out the Norse and that other white men (probably English or German pirates) were responsible for that. This is not implausible since the English exterminated the Swedes from their North American colony in the 17th Century.
...because, as everyone knows, if you are blonde&blue, you are most certainly a racist.

“Even those who are proud of European and American culture already see Europe as lost. They look at the growing 5% to 10% muslim minority in Europe and simply give up. That’s like a football team ahead 70-0 giving up as soon as the other team scores one touchdown. Our side may have demoralized itself, but that is not an excuse to give up and forfeit the game”
What’s happening in Europe has no relationship to the game of football. None.
The white/Christian Euros who are not “fighting back” are behaving that way for [either one of] two reasons:
They are hopelessly liberalized/secularized, and actually have come to believe that embracing the notions of “multiculturalism” will save them. They hope and fantasize that the new hordes of Islamics can yet somehow be pacified, either through “assimilation” [which won’t happen] or by appeasement in the form of housing, benefits, anti-discrimination laws, etc.
They are realistic in their assessment of the situation before them, and choose to do nothing because they fully understand that those “things they must do” to rectify their dilemma are so extreme as to be unpalatable to their internal constitutions and unacceptable to the outside world. Thus, they resign themselves to their inevitable fate.
Nevertheless, there _are_ those who are “proud of [their] European culture” and who _are_ speaking out and - if given the power to do so - are willing to take those unpalatable actions to drive out the influence of Islam in Western Europe. However, you (and many others here) would be among the first to put down the political groups of which I’m speaking. In England, there is the BNP. In France, there is the National Front. In Austria there is the Austrian Freedom Party (FPO). Denmark has the Danish People’s Party. Belgium has the Vlaams Blok. There is the League of the North in Italy. And there are additional parties in other Western European countries that not only recognize the danger of creeping Islam within their borders, but actively campaign and publicize against the Islamification of Western Europe.
And within EVERY country in which these parties exist, their leaders and members are labeled racists and bigots. Not only are the nationalist parties attacked for their message, they are often the subject of overt attempts to silence them or even ban their participation altogether within the political arena. At the extreme, they are murdered (example: Netherlands politician Pim Fortyn).
I contend that the ONLY political parties that have the potential to save Europe from Islam are indeed these nationalist parties. They understand the threat, speak out, name names and point fingers. They are unafraid to call out Islam on its intents and goals for Europe. And - given the power to do so - I contend they are the ONLY parties in Europe which would take proactive steps to reverse European Islamicization.
Europe cannot be saved by appeasement and by multiculturalism. What will “save” Europe (and by saving it I mean preserving it as a continent ruled and dominated by white/Christians, and where that culture prevails as it has for centuries) will be, can be nothing less than outright racism and discrimination against those who are non-Euro and non-Christian. At the very least, actions which will be called racist and discriminatory.
Those are hard words to speak in a forum dedicated to the notions of freedom. Yet in a reasoned and rational world, when confronted with problems that are all-but insurmountable, one must assess the dangers and forge a pathway forward based on cold-hearted reason. In view of that, I ask anyone reading this: how can ascendant Islam be “reasoned” with? In view of Islam’s history, how were their previous historical “advances” successfully reversed?
In the original article, the author mentions the American native Indians and the Viking invaders. Juxtapose this to Western Europe. It is now the white/Christians who are the “natives”, and the Islamics who are the Vikings. The numbers of the native Christians are shrinking, their will to resist is crumbling, and the strength of the invaders is growing by leaps and bounds - not only by sheer numbers, but in their cultural influence and the willingness to speak in a unified political voice. Given this, what outcome is probable?
I have written before on FreeRepublic, that the white/Christians of Western Europe have only two choices before them:
1. Boxcars, or...
If they cannot discover the internal fortitude to choose option #1, they WILL get option #2.
I would like to read his comments about a solution.
Parents should never allow their children to be indoctrinated by a Marxist, not even for a minute. Schools are **not** the only places. Please consider the church Sunday schools and youth programs, scouting, summer camps,...etc.
But...By far, government K-12 schools, colleges, and universities are the worse offenders.
Conservatives must begin to set up alternatives.
How about American culture?
The Muslims in Europe are disproportionately on welfare. The crisis point will arrive when the European middle class can no longer support the Welfare State, or when the survival of the Welfare State necessitates the expulsion of all immigrant welfare recipients.

And...the video of the KGB defector is chilling.
In fact something like this MAY happen. Recall that the Norse originally settled Greenland as well as Iceland. Eventually the Greenland settlements were abandoned. Part of the reason may have been due to Inuit expansion into Greenland.
Your hopefully not closely examined acceptance of the collectivist chant “All cultures have positive aspects” disturbs me. While there is, theoretically speaking, some minor point about any culture which might be considered “positive”, reality and history shows all but the collectivism impaired that many cultures ARE inferior to America and Europe.
Islamic cultures are largely in the inferior catagory.
Unless, that is, if one accepts murder, rape, theft, and a host of abuses of women, starting with the female as being defined as chattel, to such specifically Islamic butcheries as the required citerectomy and excision of vaginal labia of Muslim women.
PS Those operations have been done, and still are being done, without any anesthesia, on fully conscious young women.
PPS Google the Muslims impaling a victim, which ends with the victim writhing on the stake.
Nice folks, those Muslims. Just as Presiden Bush said, - peaceful practioners of the “Religion of Peace”.
I was at work when he was attacked. We watched it on TV. We also were monitoring ( as part of the job) the all police tac frequencies.
Unit after unit was standing by all over the Los Angeles area in assigned positions, ready to go in and help...they were ordered to stay in position and do nothing until ordered otherwise.
Plenty of LEO were mad as could be and had plenty of comments regarding being ordered to do nothing.
City officials were cowards giving orders hoping to not inflame the situation. Not a bit willing to send in LEO and try to stop Dennys' attack.
Like doing nothing would keep rioting from spreading... DUH!
If anyone follows my posts, it's brief: nevermarxism.
“I have seen the Congressional record stating the goals of Communism. Unfortunately we are nearly there.
And...the video of the KGB defector is chilling.”
Yes it is chilling. My only guess (and my only hope) is that the communists, both overt and covert, have underestimated and do not understand on a fundamental level the inner strengths of our system and the power of freedom.
AMEN. My ancestors were Vikings. What can I say?
“Disagree. Stockholm syndrome. That, and the fact that Mr. Denny was brain-damaged by the attack.”
His forgiveness gives no hint that it is the result of brain damage. Pope John Paul II forgave - in person - his would be assassin and he was not brain damaged in the least in 1981. The Stockholm syndrome applies to hostages - not assault victims.
“His attack remains, like the Goldman-Simpson murder, an unjusticed travesty.”
True. And yet he forgave his attackers.
The MSM must stand indicted and indeed they were not. For the few, very few shots of Reginald Denny that were shown, had a stark contrast. There were the hundreds and hundreds of segments of the unfortunate beating of the man during his arrest. Even this was weighted by the MSM, by absolutely cutting out the kicking and violence by this man.
As you will know, when the police officers were initially acquitted, there were deaths and property damage. The MSM got off free, for their deliberate inflaming of a bad scene.
Hyenas and Jackals.
It was a black man that was arrested for driving a motorcycle dangerously.
I have forgotten his name. Denny was the victim of the riots that followed the acquittal of police officers in the first instance.
Denny cried and hugged the mother of "Football Williams" one of the thugs. I wonder where Williams is today?
True. And yet he forgave his attackers.
I note your interesting take on the business of Rodney King, and the victim of a "payback" attack. Like so many cases, the recipient of a revenge attack is likely the LAST person deserving. Reginald Denny virtually lost all sense of HIS own dignity. This is hard for me to say.
Damian "Football" Williams, the man who kicked Denny in the head, today is serving 46 years for killing a drug dealer. Working class myself, I will never understand a man who gets a break and then blows it.
Old Norse and Anglo-Saxon were close enough to be mutually understandable when the Vikings raided England. When forces of the last English King, Harold II (Goodwin) faced those of his brother Tostig and Norwegian King Harald II (Hardrada) at Stamford Bridge in 1066, everyone understood each other’s curses. And the English battle line chanting “Ut, Ut” is still understandable in modern English.
“I will never understand a man who gets a break and then blows it.”
Neither will I.
“its hard to be proud of European culture........especially since it has contributed so much to America’s greatness. “
yes, Europe gave the US the opportunity to show its greatness during WW1 and WW2.
I'd go so far as to say it's impossible to be "proud" of European culture, or any culture really. Since no one person is responsible for creating a culture, no one can fairly take "pride" in it.
But wouldn't you agree that there is much to admire in European culture?
The motorcyclist was named McDuffy, if I remember correctly.
He was beaten to death with six cell Mag Light flashlights. Thereafter, the Miami cops called such flashlights “McDuffy sticks”.
Sensitive chaps, weren’t they.
Decades later, though, I always use that name for my Mag Light when using it on field trips. The students always ask why that name - alas, it does appear they don’t have any idea of local history.
I then always add in a short talk about why the smaller the police force, or governmental unit in general, the better. One can reach the Miami police leadership fairly easily.
Trying to reach the Federal police agency heads is an exercise in futility.
But wouldn’t you agree that there is much to admire in European culture?
not after WW2. Germany and Austria were supposedly at the height of cultural sophistication and then gave us the Holocaust and Nazi domination. And France was always a joke. I’m supposed to admire a bunch of effete elitists that fold under the slightest pressure?
I want the simple American spirit. America is *real*.
He was beaten to death with six cell Mag Light flashlights.
I am glad to have your post. For it was two awful and regrettable cases that sparked riots. I was in error with Rodney King's mode of transport and I confused it with the Arthur McDuffy (McDuffie) case. King was driving a car when he was pulled over. This was in the Los Angeles area in 1991.
The McDuffy case must have stuck in my mind, for in 1980 in Dade County, Florida, this insurance salesman and ex-Marine was on his motor cycle. He died shortly after his violent arrest when pulled over. Now the riots that followed killed 12 persons. Sadly there was not a prayer of justification for the law here. Perhaps there is the other side though- I have not heard it.
The King riots saw 53 killed and a billion dollars in damages. I believe nearly a year later on the court verdict letting the police off.
They were speaking Old English (Saxon) after all.
