The show-down

David Pryce-Jones on the British people's (as opposed to the British government's) response to the barbarous murder of a British soldier by Islamists:
In the immediate aftermath of the Woolwich barbarity, the [English Defense League] has attracted 60,000 new subscribers and could easily develop into a quasi-patriotic, quasi-fascist mass-movement. Refusing to admit that Islam is more ideology than faith, the authorities are unwittingly bringing about the show-down that so greatly scares them.

 Of course Britain already has a fascist mass-movement, which is Islam.

They certainly don't need another one. The most likely outcome of Islamic fascism in Europe is the rise of anti-Islamic fascism, setting the stage for horror from both sides.

That is not to say that the vast majority of EDL folks aren't peaceful decent folks who are simply defending their nation from monsters. The British people have a right to defend themselves, especially when their government has been criminally negligent in defending them-- through political cowardice and suicidal immigration policies and political correctness in law enforcement and by idiot gun control that disarms law-abiding people.

But I expect, tragically, that we'll see fascist responses to fascist Islam. The right and moral response-- a resurgence of genuine Christian belief and culture-- seems a long shot.

So expect the blood to flow, as it always has-- from the Jacobians to the Bolsheviks to the Nazis to the Islamists-- when Christianity loses influence over culture.

    A fascist Christian response

    1. Christianity is very much on the ropes in the United Kingdom, KW. I wouldn't worry about a fascist Christian response. This EDL isn't very religious, more nationalist.

      Why is your kneejerk reaction always to blame the Christians?

      If you want to know what fascism looks like, just have a look at the way the Obama Administration deals with dissenters and reporters who dare to do their jobs. Now that's fascism of a decidedly un-Christian variety.

      To your point about the Obama Administration, Trish:

      The FBI never canvassed Boston mosques until four days after the April 15 [Boston Marathon] attacks, and it did not check out the radical Boston mosque where the Muslim bombers worshipped.

      The bureau didn't even contact mosque leaders for help in identifying their images after those images were captured on closed-circuit TV cameras and cellphones.

      One of the Muslim bombers made extremist outbursts during worship, yet because the [US Governmnet policy meant that the] mosque wasn't monitored, red flags didn't go off inside the FBI about his increasing radicalization before the attacks.

      The NSA monitors you, and IRS asks pro-life groups applying for 501(c) tax exemptions what they pray about, but they won't monitor mosques where violent, hateful, anti-Semitic, anti-Christian vitriol is preached.

    The British people have the natural right, but not the means, to defend themselves. They have gradually been stripped of the most basic dignity of a citizen, which is the freedom to defend one's own person and/or family without fear of prosecution and incarceration.

    Their government does not trust them with guns, and will aggressively pursue and imprison them if a home invader or thug is injured in the course of a violent attack.

    The elderly, handicapped, and other physically or cognitively impaired citizens are routinely terrorized by the violent, unemployed underclass.

    Gang rape of English girls is rampant among the Islamic immigrant population. British governments, both Labour and Tory have turned a blind eye to this problem, and have gone so far as to browbeat the victims:

    According to the Independent Police Complaints Commission, it was policy in the Southwark police specialist rape unit in 2008-09 to press women who reported rape to retract their allegations.

    I enjoyed my time in the UK during the early years of the Thatcher Government. I was living in the East Midlands, coal country, when Maggie crushed the NUM and their insane, bolshevik leader, Arthur Scargill. It was a wonderful place to live in those days, despite the rarity of central heating.

    I wouldn't even bother to visit these days.

    1. Wow, that's really sick about the rape thing. To protect and serve, right? Protecting rapists, I guess.

      To give a better picture of the situation, I should have included the following quote, also from The Guardian:

      In the case of John Worboys, the Met police missed chances to stop a man who drugged, raped and sexually assaulted over 100 women. He was arrested and released after a woman came forward in July 2007 and officers chose to believe his account, not hers. The victim said she had been "lied to and laughed at" by officers.

      According to the London Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) this sort of thing was done as a matter of Metropolitan Police policy in an effort to "manage" crime statistics and manipulate government statistics.

      I was born in the Northwest and spent my youth growing up in a major port city there. We were not a wealthy family, but neither were we dirt poor or an uneducated bunch. A mix of academics, police, and military for the most part.
      I would not trade those days for anything, but do not recognize the place anymore. Politically or culturally, that is.
      I am currently in the process of getting the remainder of my family over here and resettled.
      When I do visit, I still find myself awed by the history and the beauty of the land.... but I cannot wait to get 'home' to Canada, as I feel as if it is an occupied country. Not by Islam, as one might suspect (ever present), but rather by the European Super-State. What my cousins in the RAF refer to as 'the Fourth Reich'.
      No offence meant, but I get a similar feeling when I travel into the states these days. Check points, eyes down, and a general kind of mass hypnosis that is hard to describe. So many folks seem to be caught in the whole red team blue team thing, it comes off as surreal. Their is a huge gorilla in the room (no, not Bach's invisible one) that no one seems to notice.
      The closest approximation I have heard is 'affluenza'. But even that does not accurately describe the mood/vibe.
      Don't get me wrong, there are still areas in the US I enjoy very much and I have many family, friends and colleagues there. Nor am I saying Canada is a perfect place. God knows we have the same disease, just different symptoms. Perhaps a little more treatable.
      It guess it just seems we are a little lower on the control freak's list (yet).
      Also there is a kind of cynicism here (akin the UK in the 70's) about politics in general that makes it all a much a harder sell - at least in the suburban areas, smaller burgs and rural regions (most of us).
      Hard to put into so few words...
      Again I mean no offence to my homeland or the USA, or the history or (conscious) peoples of those lands.
      Just saying like I see it.

  3. Once a culture has been Christianized, there is no going back to an innocent paganism -- the options are:
    1) cultivate an ever deeper Christianity;
    2) abandon Christ for Satan.
