And read Linh’s new article (featuring material discussed in this interview) HERE.

Some of my Veterans Today friends and colleagues (readers as well as editors) visited Southeast Asia in the 1960s. Their task: Spread death and degeneracy on behalf of Operation Apocalypse Now. Today, Westerners are still spreading death and degeneracy in Southeast Asia, but in a kinder and gentler way—at least if you consider drunken headbutting and corrupting the local women as kinder and gentler than bombing the sh*t out of the place and corrupting the local women.

Anyone with eyes to see knows the West is a festering pustule of corruption, oozing its virulent miasma over the rest of the planet…much of which welcomes the rot and decay. Islam is the only medicine capable of curing a planetary culture suffering from such an advanced stage of illness.

Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor

Linh Dinh, America’s greatest poet-essayist-photographer-laureate-in-exile, was informally banned from what passes for the American literary world after he began telling too much truth about such events as 9/11. Today he is more or less based in Vietnam, but seems to spend much of his time roaming around Asia.

  1. Kevin, don’t push Islam or Shia-ism so forcefully, it will be counter-productive. Though I do agree with most of what you say. Christianity too has a lot to teach us even after being co-opted by earthly powers.

    Don’t read poetry.
    Know nothing about photography.

    Dinh’s observations-into-essays are excellent reading.

    Difficult to find a better essayist.

    At approx 10:35 Barrett starts talking about the Hmong in the US, and mentions a “deer hunting dispute” — it’s not clear exactly what he’s referring to here, but it’s probably the case of Chai Vang, who in 2004 shot 8 people in northern WI, killing 6 — he claimed self-defense, but was convicted of murder — I would call that something more than a “dispute”.

    Also the Hmong in WI (most came as refugees after the end of the Vietnam War) were the subject of Roy Beck’s classic 1994 article The Ordeal of Immigration in Wausau — it’s safe to say that Hmong in WI are about as bad a fit as Somalis in MN (or Maine, for that matter):

    It all began simply enough, when a few churches and individuals in Wausau, Wisconsin, decided to resettle some Southeast Asian refugees during the late 1970s. To most residents, it seemed like a nice thing to do. Nobody meant to plant the seeds for a social transformation. But this small and private charitable gesture inadvertently set into motion events that many residents today feel are spinning out of control. Wausau–the county seat of the nation’s champion milk-producing county–has learned that once the influx starts, there’s little chance to stop it. Regardless of how many newcomers failed to find jobs in this north-central Wisconsin city of 37,500, or how abraded the social fabric became, the immigrant population just kept growing.

    In little more than a decade the immigrant families’ children have come to make up almost a quarter of the elementary schools’ enrollment, …

  6. You’ll never get away with head-butting Asian locals. That is nonsense and I am writing from Asia as a white man.

    Either you’ll be swarmed by Asians.

    Or you’ll go to an absolute hellhole. The toughest white man would cry like a child at the conditions of an Asian jail. Beating up a local will get you five or six years. Possibly you’ll be dead after three.

    Mostly, though, you’ll be jumped by five or ten of the tougher locals and beaten. The police may then arrest you and beat you some more.

    I’m no novelist. I’m merely an American who survived on the streets of Asia for years.

    Sadly I agree that modern western civilization has become perhaps terminally corrupt. But.

    “Islam is the only medicine capable of curing a planetary culture suffering from such an advanced stage of illness.” Excuse me? As bad as the modern west is, Islam (or at least Wahhabist-inspired Islam – the Turks for example are still pretty cool) is worse.

    In Islam, people hate Jews, Christians, women, atheists, homosexuals, hindus, blacks (unless they are black themselves), and other sects of Islam, and they are compelled to scream this hatred at the top of their lungs and feel not only free, but required to attack the objects of their hatred. Muslims make the Nazies look like diversity consultants. Muslims treat their women like slaves, and breed their children like cattle in large numbers as a source of cheap labor (much of Pakistan’s economy is made up of child slaves, check wikipedia) and the resulting population explosion drives people into a level of misery that is objectively inferior to that of Medieval Europe. Indeed, it is now widely accepted that forcing a muslim to live in their own lands is an act of intolerable cruelty and a violation of international law. By their fruits shall ye know them. They deny young men the outlet of wine, women, or song, and the only outlet for all these desperately poor unemployed young men is violence and hatred. Oh, and don’t forget, Islam is a region of peace and all who say different must be killed. If nothing else, one cannot accuse a muslim of having a sense of irony…

    Talk about the cure being worse than the disease…

    You say “Islam hates everybody.” Have you ever lived among Muslims, or had us as neighbors? I very much doubt it. Almost everybody who has lived among Muslims, across a a wide variety of very different cultures, has little but good to say. (By “lived” I don’t mean invading, murdering, raping, committing war crimes, and so on.)

    Statistically, Muslim populations are doing considerably better than comparable non-Muslim populations on most social indicators.

    https://www.veteranstodayarchives.com/2013/08/16/jamil-2/

    That’s rather miraculous, considering how the Muslim-majority lands have been pillaged by the West (and to a lesser extent Russia and China) and systematically impoverished during the past few centuries. Details here: https://crescent.icit-digital.org/articles/an-honest-account-of-atrocities

    I disagree. Islam’s treatment of women is deplorable. 4 wives for every man? A 50 year man can marry a 9 year old girl? Stoning of women to death if they were accused of adultery, even if they were raped? Gang rape as punishment for dating outside their tribe? Cutting off a doctor’s hand if his patient dies? Totally barbaric.

    The Islamic world can keep their medieval religion, and those who agree with Kevin Barrett can move there with him.

    Puritanism is the only salvation for the West.

    I have not lived among Muslims, but I have worked with a good number of them. I got on well with them and grew quite fond of them. The great majority of those I worked with were honest, decent and kind – as were the devout Christians I have met or worked with. Vis-a-vis the current moral decay in the West and much of the Rest, traditional Christians and Muslims should be natural allies.

    Forgive me if I am wrong, but where does Guenon state that Islam is the only hope? While that may have been the path he chose because of his conceptions his entire philsophy is founded on the idea that being a Christian is as true as being a Muslim if one is traditional.

    Contrary to what takes place in ‘conversion’, nothing here implies the attribution of the superiority of one traditional form over another. It is merely a question of what one might call reasons of spiritual expediency, which is altogether different from simple individual ‘preference’.

    Dubai roads and bridges are much nicer than those of many US cities. Schools are safer. There is far less crime. The living standard overall is higher.

    I wouldn’t call Islam the ‘hope’ for the West but rather the colonic it desperately needs (and will get good and hard in the fullness of time) to flush out all the degenerate poofs, trannies, Jews and female emancipation extremists out of the system. Unfortunately Islam also comes with unattractive side effects such as the hijabs, the burkas and all the nonsensical fasting and praying-five-times-a-day-to-(the fake)-Mecca junk that goes with it. At least with Jesus all us (non-fanatics) have to do is follow the commandments wisely. Unfortunately it is the case however that Islam is nothing without its rituals, so it looks like rituals is what they will get.

    Just what is Christianity? And what is Islam? A pox on both their houses, and their common progenitor.

    It seems some have a need for religion. Very well, then, let each have their own lares and penates, their own household gods, as private and personal to them as their own dreams or nightmares. Let them leave us alone to have our own or not, and let us return the compliment. Then let all use enlightened self-interest to attack their own problems, and not those of some favored victim group somewhere far away.

    It has been three decades since I studied Guenon so I don’t have a handy quote for you. But as I recall his position was that while all traditional revealed religions are fully valid, Islam is the best-preserved and the only one that can save the West. He greatly admired the mystical/monistic (Upanishads) side of Hinduism but believed it was so utterly unlike Western culture that it wouldn’t work here. He also admired traditional Christianity but felt it had decayed past the point of being revived. If he were here today he might find some hope in Eastern Christianity. But he would undoubtedly still be a Muslim and still believe Islam is the West’s only salvation.

    Islam has the same roots as the West: Abrahamic monotheism and classical Greco-Roman culture. European Islam (mostly in Spain and the Balkans) has always been and still is fully European. It is the one European tradition that has the potential to revive religion in Europe and protect/revive Christianity, which is moribund after being beaten to death by the Zionists.

    Rene Guenon believed all traditions were valid paths to the Divine. He included Catholicism and Judaism in this. He initially thought that Buddhism was not a valid path, but was large spirited enough to change his mind when shown otherwise. He was a Perennialist, who thought there was an original pre-historic Tradition that divided into the multiple paths we find in historical times.

    However, he did say that for the West, only Catholicism was the appropriate path to the Divine.

    It’s interesting that even though he chose Islam as most congenial to his own personality, he didn’t write much about it. He thought Hindu metaphysical doctrines were the closest thing to the original Tradition and wrote a book on that. Guenon also practiced a very esoteric form of Muslim mysticism.

    Its interesting, but while I have the greatest respect for Guenon’s ideas, I am always somewhat repelled by the emotional tone of his books. They are too angry, and lack the serene joy of spirituality.

    I myself agree with Guenon – all traditions are valid paths to the Divine for their own peoples. I have the greatest respect for Islam and think it has much good in it.

    I don’t know if it fits the personality of Europeans – maybe. I get the sense that Islam is the best path for those dealing with serious anger, like Guenon, and perhaps Kevin Barrett. I think Islam may be the best spiritual path for alt-right type personalities, for that reason.

    This does not mean I find Islam “inferior” -just that it is uniquely good for certain personality types. Tibetan Buddhism also separates its practices based on whether one is predominantly angry, greedy, lustful etc.

    So maybe there is no one European personality type – I suspect the European elite find Eastern faiths most congenial, and a minority of the elite Judaism. While the broad middle probably would benefit from Catholicism or Orthodoxy, and the angry people with a sense of grievance and feeling disenfranchised, might benefit most from the spiritual discipline of Islam.

    You’re always asking the same question. In the Gulf Arab states it’s because of the wealth and has nothing to do with their religion.

    Dubai has lots of oil and plenty of white Christian soldiers to rush to its defense whenever ZOG calls for it. It also has lots of Pakistani and Bangla and – to a lesser extent – Filipino slaves. So it is hard to compare with any place in the USA.

    Indonesia is not remotely like Pakistan or Bangladesh, except for the province of Aceh, where sharia is applied, and even so, Aceh is a paradise in comparison with those hell holes.

    Again, Indonesia DOES NOT AT ALL OR IN ANY WAY RESEMBLE Pakistan or Bangladesh.

    The Indonesia people are in general very nice, cheerful and friendly and they do not live under sharia or live out their religions (for there are a few and they are constitutionally protected) with any kind of fanatacism.

    And indonesia is very safe. I am confident that I could walk at 2 a.m. anywhere in a major Indonesian city, like Surabaya for example, even in the poorest areas, and I would not have a hand laid on me or hear a negative word. I certainly could not say the same about Sydney or Auckland.

    Fundamentally, race matters much, much more than religion.

    Of course, in Indonesia the politicians are greedy and nefarious scum, but so they are everywhere.

    You say “Islam hates everybody.” Have you ever lived among Muslims, or had us as neighbors? I very much doubt it. Almost everybody who has lived among Muslims, across a a wide variety of very different cultures, has little but good to say. (By “lived” I don’t mean invading, murdering, raping, committing war crimes, and so on.)

    That you perceive Muslims to be seemingly well behaved doesn’t matter.

    To know anything significant about both Islam’s and Judaism’s core tenets is to know that the former is a dumbed down and more physically militant version of the latter, tailored for lower IQ Arab/Turk armies that originally served as Jewish golems against the West (ie: against Spain and Byzantium).

    Both Jews and Islam have the same stated goal of the apocalyptic destruction of the West and a future utopia under their control. Except for the fact that Islam is a dumbed down version of Judaism and so it exists to serve its goals. So that future Utopia will be the future Jewish Utopia, not the Islamic one.

    The Jews repeatedly state in their Rabbinical commentary that Islam is meant to destroy the West preceding the Jewish Messianic Age / Slave World.

    I well know the broader Arab group racial group. If you have something good to say, in comparison with anyone but the worst Whites, then your ability to observe people is severely lacking or you have another agenda. Southeast Asians are minimally smarter but are generally too insular to compliment. And if you are stating that Filipinos or Indonesians are groups to emulate, then I simialrly question your judgement.

    Sunni-group Central Asians (Arabs and Turks) are similar to East Asians and Persians, except dumber. In that, they share muted similarities with Africans: their cultural status sense and resulting egos have a strangely preeminent material quality that will always define their behavior and group.

    Africans have their cheap bling (for them, shiny chrome rims on an old car are ‘nice’), American Persians over-emphasize what they imagine to be the material trappings of upper class status (at the cost of actual class – its pretty much doing the Black thing but with more expensive taste), and Arabs-Dravidians attempt the same but fail at it at a much higher rate than Persians. The actual primary difference between Central Asians and Africans is only of a type of dumb Central Asian zealotry that results in a type of bezerker approach to everything. One wants a white woman? Berzerker. Don’t stand in the way. They feel poor and have Islam to feed them apocalyptic entitlement? Then its berzerker Jihad.

    Like all central Asians and Africans, you can never really trust them. They will always put individual material gain above community, but especially if you aren’t one of them. Beyond that, they are quantifiably and observably stupid as a group. I know them well.

    Islam is for non-White Jewish slaves. Its a derivative religion that was very likely dictated to them. Islam is not for White people. We have our own religion, derived from our original Zoroastrianism that Jewish Islam mostly wiped out. Thanks, but no thanks.

    Fuck off. Guenon was either compromised or a moron. The middle ground and most likely conclusion is that he was racially defensive as someone who looked like half a camel during the WWII era and lied to serve that purpose, like a Jew. In other words he was compromised from reaching spiritually truthful conclusions due to his perceived racial self interest.

    All Semitic religion is a political program, not a path to the divine. Paths to the divine don’t include stated plans for the destruction of other peoples and nations toward a material rulership: like Judaism and Islam do. Judaism doesn’t even have a metaphysical belief. That’s how much of a “path to the divine” it is. Its heaven resides solely in material rulership on Earth.

    Europeans have an inner spiritual discipline and Will that has been in a long battle with invading Jews for a couple of Millenia now. We know that we have eternal life, versus the Jew who knows that he only has this life. That’s the price of your pact with your god.

    We don’t need your kike religions as band-aids to the damage you’ve done. In fact, we have long resisted them because deep down we know what they are: spiritual death under Jewish supremacist theology.

    We only need your absence to fully recover. Which is what the Jews well know, why you focus so strongly on our degradation due to not being able to be away from us in any significant capacity, and why we are so tough to defeat even after such a long stretch of fighting.

    Who is God on High’s Chosen?

    The People from whom no other Peoples can stand to be cast away due to the righteousness and generosity of their homogeneous societies and their largely spiritual nature. The People who other Peoples will try to destroy before being cast out for their wickedness. The People who God made physically beautiful to reflect their inner spiritual beauty.

    Who are the Other God’s Chosen? The Devil’s Chosen?

    The people who try their hardest to destroy God’s people, who don’t believe in an afterlife, whose books preach mostly material strategies for dominance, who look physically horrid at their genetic core, and who no nation can get rid of no matter how much the Devil’s People are universally hated and no matter how hard they are pushed away as obviously corrosive social factors.

    Humans as broad groups don’t run from God nor his People. And they don’t. They run toward them. They run from and desperately try to push away the antithesis of His People as well as all of their products like Islam. Humans always have, and they still desperately try today.

    Why does a First World country like American have these problems at all?

    To use a non-Muslim example, why does Australia have decent infrastructure and roads without huge potholes and bridges collapsing?

    Somebody here will say its because of blacks or Mestizos, but what do these people have to do with the quality of infrastructure? Roads don’t have potholes in them like American major cities or buildings on the verge of collapse because blacks drive down the road.

    America is supposedly a country of vast wealth, so why is there so much structural poverty?

    Don’t get me wrong. Some people will be poor everywhere. They’ll simply buy expensive liquor and have no money left for food. Some people are crazy. Some poor souls get introduced to drugs when they are 13 and are lifelong addicts who will never hold a job.

    Dubai does not allow Israeli nationals to enter to my knowledge.

    Emirate are not out kidnapping people in Dhaka or Karachi for work in Dubai. I am sympathetic to Filipino woman, because there is some horrendous abuse of these poor girls. However, most males in Dubai no what they are getting into and I certainly did. Many Pakistanis and Bengali work in Dubai for 40 years out of choice. There are occasional human rights abuses, sure. But there are human rights abuses in the US as well.

    The only serious trouble I knew of in Dubai either involved US Navy personnel docking on a carrier or the occasional killing of a prostitute.

    In my experience Australia right now is deal with an upsurge in meth abuse by the poor white population. In a few years they’ll either die, get clean or be locked up for life. Meth will go out of style and crime will decrease.

From time to time they still go on violent witch hunts lynching alleged witches in Indonesia. The anti-Chinese pogroms are also especially horrific.

    Its an observation. Elites seem attracted to Judaism or the highly intellectual Eastern faiths.

    Spiritual discipline is about overcoming our faults – for people with a lot of intellectual pride – elites – Eastern faiths utilize the intellect to humble intellectual pride by showing how limited it is. They use intellect to go beyond intellect. That’s Taoism and Zen.

    There are Eastern faiths which are less intellectual, but they have not attracted the same attention among Western elites.

    Judaism is obviously a very intellectual religion, and it deals with intellectual pride by utilizing it for the service of God through study and interpretation of the holy texts, which is a way of saying it has no autonomy or value on its own (which is the pride of the humanists in human reason). At higher levels, Judaism is similar to Eastern faiths, and uses intellect to go beyond intellect. God is utterly mysterious and beyond human comprehension. The Book of Job is an extended mockery of human reason’s attempt to understand God.

    Now, no one fault is worse than any other. Greed, lust, intellectual pride – different people struggle with different things. That’s why there are different paths to the Divine.

    Kevin Barrett himself said that his spiritual longing was awakened by a study of the Jewish Kaballah, but ultimately he was not able to find Judaism congenial. He is too angry and impetuous for Judaism, and not intellectual enough. The particular spiritual discipline he needs, while it is found in Judaism, is much better expressed in Islam. Islam is best able to help him overcome his faults.

    I would suggest that your appreciation for Islam is an instinctive understanding of what would most help you overcome your nature.

    If native white Europeans convert to Islam en masse and follow its tenets, they will have happier marriages, more and better-cared-for children, the birth rate will go up, and they will avoid physical extinction. Their economies will no longer need immigrants to keep the young-old ratio balanced. They will stop being decadent materialistic nihilists, thereby staving off cultural collapse. Reviving the classical European cultural traditions under a new Euro-Islamic framework will lead to a new Renaissance.

    I suppose it would be rude to suggest what would help you to overcome your nature.

    Obviously. How could anyone think otherwise?

    It’s interesting to realize that I viscerally object to the idea.

    I don’t need to embroider that with some kind of rationalization, nor, on the other hand, do I need to deny that this is my response.

    It’s just interesting that it is my response.

    The same could conceivably be achieved by re-committing themselves to traditional Christianity, under whose strong influence Europe experienced its original Renaissance, and which for centuries provided a solid foundation for the unique and very successful, even spectacular, social, cultural, and economic development of Europe — but you don’t mention this rather obvious alternative.

    Although I don’t really think it would be quite as simple as that.

    Also, please note what does and does not constitute a hunting “dispute”.

  47. Kevin Barrett you prove the worthlessness of the education system that has conned poor American youth into a $trillion plus collective debt for which they nor their parents and America have anything to show for.And on top of it you hope to brainwash them down to your level of religious ignornace or retardation and have them wandering around lost mumbling something about allah ! That is truly sick to put it politely.

    When I was very young in the 1950s Texas had a population of around 7 million people. I wasn’t even in first grade when I remember being freaked out by a television program that was warning about overpopulation.It still sticks in my mind.Just imagine that around the time of the Mexican revolution in 1910 the entire country of Mexico had a population of only about 7 million !

    When I ran off to California to join the hippie generation and avoid possibly being drafted and turned into a monster like youyr pals at VeteransToday, California had a population of about 20 illion.Now it’s about 40 million.Do you think it’s improved ?

    [MORE]

    I ended up in Berkeley living in a big communal house with young people from the suburbs who were into alternative energy and although I dropped out of high school in Louisiana and worked on an oil barge to get money to travel in Central America before moving to California,I became interested in algae and did voluteer work and hung out with fresh water algologists working with experimental sewage recycling ponds.Unfortunately algae is just too hard to get out of water.

    Without going into anymore of my self education,it was 1981 when the pope who had just pardoned Galileo for believing that the earth orbited the sun said modern agriculture could provide food for the world’s growing population and thus we didn’t need birth control.So my self education and all those good books at the bookstores and at the Berkeley Gianini agriculture Library allowed me to write a rebuttal I titled ‘the pope’s misconceptions about conception and science history’ pointing out that the chuirch also taught Aristotle’s,et.al.’s four elements ‘earth,air,water and fire because the bible or torah was too priimtive to have even four elements.And while the church got its four elements from the Moslems who still had Aristotle’s writings,their Koran was too plagiarized from the bible or torah to update with Aristotle’s four or five elements.

    Anyway my essay was not published in the UC Berkely Daily Californian until 1987 when the pope was in SF and almost not published then thanks to those brilliant ‘Jews’ AaaronB can’t stop raving about in his comments here anymore than you can stop raving about allah.The Jews were protesting the pope for claimng non jewish Polish people also died there if I remember correctly.So for this reason the UC Berkeley Daily Californian was not to mention the pope’s presence in SF until after he left even if the mention pertained to an area of science and western history that had never been written before ! Besides the studentS and editors at UC Berkeley wouldn’t even know it was an area of science,religion and history that had never been wtritten before after their years of ‘education’ or brainwashing in our finest acadeic institutions.

    The point I was making was that now that we had discovered atoms the catholic church’s and Aristotele’s four elements had come unglued and we could now calculate that the pope and everyone on the planet has about a pound and a half of phosphates entering their bodies through the food they eat and are excreting it from their bodies each year or earth orbit and we are depleting our limited reserves of phosphates fast ! Since writing this essay the U.S. has become a net importer of phosphates to grow grains to feed ourselves and to export around the world to countries such as Iraq and Israel and so many other countries who can’t produce grains to feed their own piopulations much less the animals they raise for meat.So if Islam is only going to lead to more overpopulation,thanks but NO THANKIS ! I guess you think your superior to other apes and animals and plants our overpopulation is driving to extinction because they don’t praise ‘allah’.In
    many ways orangatangs are superior and smarter than humans because they do not defile their nests or destroy their environment like us ‘smart’ apes do.

    And even with all that holocausting your pals at VeteransToday did in Viet Nam in their younger
    daze the Vietnamese have proven they don’t need your religion to know how to go out and multiply
    But they do need phosphates which has always been provided through rice irrigation rather than soil until ‘modern’ times.And all that damning upstream by the Chinese threatens to empty their rice baskets .

    You are living up to your name “Dumbo”. Were you born a christian or did you convert due to conviction? Born, I guess.
    “As religions, Islam is more similar to Judaism (farisaism / talmudism) with its thousands of rules than to Christianity.”
    Christianity, due to dwindling adherents has been shedding long standing religious rules and has now made itself irrelevant unlike the Greek Unorthodox.

    Mistah Eah, your contention is laughable. The Renaissance was achieved inspite of medieval Christianity and the Church. The Church put every obstacle to keep the Renaissance at bay.

    The same could conceivably be achieved by re-committing themselves to traditional Christianity, under whose strong influence Europe experienced its original Renaissance, and which for centuries provided a solid foundation for the unique and very successful, even spectacular, social, cultural, and economic development of Europe“”

    But the Renaissance did happen, didn’t it? — so in the end, apparently the Church wasn’t such a formidable obstacle after all, was it? — and, while Christianity/church may have been a hindrance to some advances in the sciences (Galileo probably being the best known example), the Church itself (including monasteries) always emphasized learning and scholarship, organizing and operating many schools and places of higher learning.

    What you apparently don’t find “laughable” is the suggestion that the only/best way to save the West is for westerners to convert en masse to Islam — as opposed to re-committing to living their lives by the moral precepts of Christianity, which from tradition makes a lot more sense.

    ‘Negative visceral responses to Islam are almost entirely due to Hollywood propaganda in general, and the Zio-Hollywood real-life disaster film “9/11” in particular.’

    Well, yes and no. I’ll differ with the ‘almost entirely.’

    There is the aggressive, potentially genocidal Islamophobia the Zionists seem to have been promoting for some time now — and as you say, it really got into high gear with 9/11.

    I’ve no sympathy with that.

    However, I think my sentiment predates this — and if no more rational, is at least defensive in nature. It goes back to Turk bells, and notions of Christendom as opposed to Islam, and Gladstone’s ‘the Unspeakable Turk.’ It’s all well and good for Islam to be in North Africa and Asia, and it’s mighty fine as long as it’s there, but it’s got no business taking over here. Europe is for Christianity, not Islam. It would not amuse me to see Chartres rededicated as a mosque.

    As I say, I won’t pretend I’ve prepared a logical defense for that attitude — but it is my attitude.

    ‘The Muslim-majority countries are underdeveloped mainly because they have been systematically raped and pillaged by the Global North for more than 200 years. https://crescent.icit-digital.org/articles/an-honest-account-of-atrocities’

    Meh. There’s also the ‘sometimes you’re up, sometime you’re down’ effect. We’ve pulled ahead over the last three or four hundred years. I see no need to deny or rationalize that.

    So? It hasn’t been the case for all time, there’s no reason to think that it will continue to be the case for all time in the future, and it doesn’t point to any inherent, immutable, or profound superiority.

    It means that we’ve been ahead lately. Don’t read too much into it.

    If anything, that lately people seem to find it necessary to read too much into it is perhaps a sign that we’re getting a little insecure. If one looks at attitudes of about one hundred-odd years back — when we really were way ahead — there was a willingness to frankly appreciate what other civilizations had to offer that many seem to be incapable of today.

    It is now, not then, that one gets people bellowing about Islam being a ‘civilization-destroying religion,’ of it having no art or literature of any merit at all, of its peoples being some sort of vermin best exterminated as quickly as possible.

    We’re afraid. We didn’t used to be. That’s not evidence of our unassailable superiority.

    I’m told India is worse. You’ll get jumped by 50 or 100 Indians because there is an underlying colonial resentment.

    No matter what a tough guy you are, if 90 Indians jump you, you’re going to be beaten up pretty badly.

    Actually, one of my friends was a security guard on the set of a Chuck Norris film made in the Philippines and Chuck was mugged at an ATM in Manila and knocked unconscious for some period of time.

    I also knew of an instance where Koreans jumped an American in Philippines simply because they outnumbered him.

    On one occasion, I visited an American in jail in the Philippines who beat up a lady boy (Common) and the jails are so filthy, you’ll be dead in a year in one.

    My personal situation is not relevant.

    Christianity, due to dwindling adherents has been shedding long standing religious rules

    Cause and effect are the opposite, it has been losing adherents because of the shedding of rules/traditions, it wouldn’t otherwise. No one wants a Gay Church that is completely indistinguishable from Progressivism.

    That said, the only white people I saw having 5 or more children in Europe were Catholics or other practicing Christians, so perhaps it’s early to write them off yet.

    The negative visceral response is that these people are of an alien racial stock and are crowding us out of our own lands with the help of occupation governments that bring them in and give them our resources to multiple exponentially. We wouldn’t be ok with these people coming here even without Jewish propaganda. In fact, they wouldn’t have been allowed in to begin with.
