Why Are Our Elites Determined to Destroy Our Society?

Jared Taylor Interview – Is Diversity a Strength?

Kitman TV presents: an Interview With Jared Taylor

Jared Taylor on Paula Zahn Show

My foreign land

Andrew Bolt picks up on a vicar’s wife report on her stay in a Muslim land:

I have just returned to London, where I have lived since I was 11. I have been away for four years, living as an ethnic minority in a monocultural part of the world, amassing a host of stories to tell to disbelieving friends. On the whole, I am glad to return. I shan’t miss some locals’ assumptions that, being a white woman, if I was outside after dark, as I occasionally was, usually to walk the few metres between my house and the church, I must be a prostitute eager to give them a blow job. I shan’t miss the abuse my priest husband received: the daubing of “Dirty white dogs” in red paint on the church door, the barrage of stones thrown at him by children shouting “Satan”. He was called a “f***ing white bastard” more than once, though, notably, never when in a cassock. I will also not miss the way our garden acted as the local rubbish dump, with items ranging from duvets and TV sets, to rats (dead or twitching) glued to cardboard strips, a popular local method of vermin control to stem the large numbers of them which scuttled between the rubbish piled in gardens and on pavements. Yes, I am very glad to have left Britain’s second city.

For four years, we lived in inner-city Birmingham, in what has been a police no-go area for 20 years. We know that because some plain-clothed cops told us when they asked to use our vicarage as a stake-out to bust drugs rings that pervade the area. Having heard a parishioner’s tales of what his neighbours did to him when he was wrongfully suspected of having grassed up a cock-fighting ring, we refused, explaining that we had to live here, they didn’t. Even during this time we saw the area change. When we arrived, the population was predominantly Pakistani. Now Somalis are there in equal number. Most of the run-down Irish pubs were turned into mosques during our time.

Read on to see the unfixable damage wreaked by one of the most reckless social experiments visited on Britain – one the almost no one in journalism or academia dared to even protest.

Philosopher Roger Scruton despairs:

FOR WHAT IS BEING brought home to us, through painful experiences that we might have avoided had it been permitted before now to say the truth, is that we, like everyone else, depend upon a shared culture for our security, our prosperity and our freedom to be. We don’t require everyone to have the same faith, to lead the same kind of family life, or to participate in the same festivals. But we have a shared moral and legal inheritance, a shared language, and a shared public sphere. Our societies are built upon the Judeo-Christian ideal of neighbor-love, according to which strangers and intimates deserve equal concern. They require each of us to respect the freedom and sovereignty of every other, and to acknowledge the threshold of privacy beyond which it is a trespass to go unless invited. Our societies depend upon a culture of law-abidingness and open contracts, and they reinforce these things through the educational traditions that have shaped our common curriculum. It is not an arbitrary cultural imperialism that leads us to value Greek philosophy and literature, the Hebrew Bible, Roman law, and the medieval epics and romances, and to teach these things in our schools. They are ours, in just the way that the legal order and the political institutions are ours: they form part of what made us, and convey the message that it is right to be what we are…

So what happens when people whose identity is fixed by creed or kinship immigrate into places settled by Western culture? The multiculturalists say that we must make room for them, and that we do this by relinquishing the space in which their culture can flourish. Our political class has at last recognized that this is a recipe for disaster, and that we can welcome immigrants only if we welcome them into our culture, and not beside and against it. But that means telling them to accept rules, customs, and procedures that may be alien to their old way of life. Is this an injustice? Surely not. If immigrants come it is because they gain by doing so. It is therefore reasonable to remind them that there is also a cost. Only now, however, is our political class prepared to say so, and to insist that the cost be paid. And it may be that this change of heart comes too late.

In France, speaking freely on such matters can still lead to punishment by the nervous and over-mighty state:

A French court on Friday convicted the prominent commentator Éric Zemmour on charges of “provocation to racial discrimination” for televised comments in which he suggested that a majority of criminals in France were “black and Arab,” and said that employers “have the right” to deny employment to those ethnic groups. Mr. Zemmour was ordered to pay over $14,000 in legal fees and damages to the five rights groups that were the plaintiffs in the case, and also received suspended fines totaling $2,700.

Is it illegal, then, to point out other hard truths – such as the evidence that Arab culture seems not conducive to the democracy the West takes for granted?

No Arab country has ever produced a democracy, or at least a lasting democracy; none of the 22 member states of the Arab League are classified as “free”, and all do badly on press freedom and other indicators. In fact, there is only Arabic-speaking country in the world where elections are free, the press is free, and Arab citizens are free, and that’s Israel. So to believe that Arab states cannot “do democracy” is not a judgment based “without knowledge or examination of the facts”, but the opposite.

Neither is it racist to acknowledge that there are clear differences between Arab and European nations that make the former barren ground for democracy. And the major difference is that Arab countries are not “nations” as we understand it.

Inner-city Birmingham is not some sort of post-apocalyptic Islamic ghetto. It’s just poor

Writing in the Telegraph, the Islam-friendly Daniel Knowles takes issue with an article by an anonymous vicar’s wife that appears in the current issue of Standpoint magazine, and was seized on by Torygraph blogger Ed West to bolster the myth of Muslim ghettos.

The Telegraph introduces Daniel Knowles as “a young journalist specialising in economics.”

Daniel Knowles is not some sort of journalistic moonbat, he is just unable to connect the dots. Unfortunately for him,   commenters don’t buy his drivel:

Sparkbrook is not a wonderful place. It is a deprived inner-city area where the only attraction is the curry houses. It is not, however, the post-apocalyptic abandoned… Read More

Deprived of what, Daniel?

Muslim Poverty Explained

Robert Spencer nails it with the example of Thailand’s ‘Restive’ South:

The intrepid mujahedin, gunning down teachers and forcing school closures in the entire province. Later on, they, along with analysts in the West, will complain about the region being poor and underdeveloped, and say it causes jihad. But this is a classic example of jihad causing poverty, and obliterating the means of improving one’s lot in life.

  1. Excellent interviews with Jared Taylor from Kitman TV. I’d read the ‘My Foreign Land’ piece previously. It’s certainly powerful and, in my eyes (and through my direct experience of similar areas), accurate. Scruton’s article is good, but I think contains a misplaced optimism with respect to the officially declared ditching of multiculturalism by Merkel and subsequently Cameron.

    David Cameron may talk about rejecting state multiculturalism, but in practice he continues to promote it. Moreover, he and the entire British policy establishment are besotted with the idea of getting Turkey into the EU, to be followed by the countries of the Maghreb and the Middle East. Cameron et al are active enablers of Islamisation. For video evidence and commentary, see here: http://durotrigan.blogspot.com/2011/02/80-million-turks-on-move-and-it-wont-be.html

  2. The Sultan has a good(apart from a few typos) article up on the subject.

    Tout va Très Bien Madame la Multiculturalisma
    “Announcing the failure of multiculturalism in Europe of 2011 is as relevant a disclosure as the comic French song, Tout Va Très Bien, Madame La Marquise, in which the groom informs her ladyship that her husband had committed suicide after losing his money and burned down the estate, by telling her that everything was alright except for a minor mishap with her horse. Multiculturalism may be the post-national left’s favorite nag, but the failure here is much greater. It is mass migration from the Muslim world that is the problem, and any policy that only addresses the consequences, rather than the cause, is bound to be a failure.

    Of the three leaders, Cameron was the only to lay out something close to a policy. But his muscular rhetoric sounds suspiciously like the pre-election Sarkozy. And conservative British pols have developed a habit of talking tough about Islam one minute, and pandering to it shamelessly[…]
    All this talk of integrating Muslims disregards them as a civilization, and treats them as if they were delinquents. Cameron’s talk of youth falling into extremism suggests that he thinks of them as if they were children from a broken home falling through the cracks of the system and shooting up heroin on council estates, rather than young men acting in accord with the values of their own religion.

    The Muslim terrorists of Europe are neither impoverished nor marginalized. They are doctors, architects and university students who have taken the full benefit of what the countries have to offer them, and gone to war to win it all. They are not brats acting out, but soldiers engaging in a war of conquest. A simple fact that all the integration prattle obscures.

    The difference between the so-called extremists and the moderates, is that the extremists want to conquer Europe by force, and the moderates through demographics and culture. The extremists want to blow up Europe. The moderates want to integrate it. And their lesson plans have gotten much further into the European, Canadian, Australian and American child– than the lesson plans of the Western integrators have into the Muslim child.

    Cameron has rightly identified a portion of the problem. But his solution is asinine. You do not create a vigorous culture worthy of respect by passing a law and making it so. A culture that merits respect can only be created by the measure of its accomplishments. The decline of English culture parallels the physical recession of the nation, its power, its industry and its achievements. (And that is a fair warning for America, which is headed down the same path at a slower pace.) A lesson plan on King Alfred the Great, will not make England great, and will not earn Muslim respect, let alone their integration. Most nations have their own grand histories and their own tales. But unless they still have greatness within them, these are nothing but matters of trivia.

    Talk all you want of greatness, but great nations colonize, they are not colonized. All a UK Muslim needs to do in order to gauge where the future lies is look at the native birth rate, at the Muslim birth rate and at the immigration statistics. And then he can safely relegate King Alfred the Great, Lord Nelson and Winston Churchill to the realm of obscure trivia from a vanishing nation. After all Byzantium too was great in its time, but now it’s a giant Muslim marketplace. ”

  3. Eleven year olds violated and traumatized
    by “child refugees”
    at birthday party at public swimming pool
    in Sweden

    This is, however, a non-existing non-happening incident, according to Swedish mainstream media which does not report about it.

    The 11 year old girls and their two boy birthday guest who tried to help their friends from the 20 asylum seekers harassments (tearing off their swimsuits) at the swimming pool, have tragically been traumatized by this incident at the birthday party which turned into a nightmare for them and for the father who organized the trip to the swimming pool, Husbybadet, at Solna outside Stockholm.

    Targeting children
    of “Swedish background”

    Felicia, a former pupil at the school Dammhagsskolan, at Landskrona, where more than 90% are of foreign origin, was targeted by fellow pupils because she is Swedish.

    “Swedes Begin to Question Liberal Migration Tenets”

    “Rosengard hardly has the look of a troubled ghetto. Lawns and playgrounds abound. But the area does not look like traditional Sweden, either. Satellite dishes hang from every balcony. The bakery sells Middle Eastern confections. Al Jazeera plays on the televisions. And young men huddle on street corners casually bragging about doing battle with the police.”

  4. Quote from Sultan article: Europe’s problem is not multiculturalism, but that it has been invaded and it has forgotten how to fight back.

    The situation is so dire in much of the West, that nothing but war will rescue it.

  5. MUST WATCH THIS VIDEO
    Children of Terror
    Highly Recommended!

    Reposted after being unavailable for six months

    This film deals with the militant madrassas in Sudan often inhabited by the orphans of the jihad in southern Sudan, Darfur, Nigeria and Chad. Here, the men are usually enslaved or killed; the women, if not killed, are taken north and sold after enduring sadistic rapes. But the children are often kidnapped and deported to terrorist training camps, where they are brainwashed into the Islamic ideology of hate and trained for military warfare against non-Muslims and the west. When they finish their schooling they are sent back home or abroad to establish sleeper cells and await orders from religious leaders.

  6. IN THE “GOOD OLD DAYS” OF THE COLD WAR, MUCH TREASURE, AND MANY LIVES WERE EXPENDED, ALL TO MAINTAIN OUR FREEDOM, AND KEEP US FROM “LOOSING” AND BECOMING COMMUNISTS. WE CAME THROUGH IN ONE PIECE.
    NOW, I READ ABOUT THE CLOWARD & PIVEN PLAN:

    (on this very sheikyermami publication, which I read every day!)

    “Add it up and you’ve got the perfect Marxist scheme –
    all devised by my Columbia University college classmate Barack Obama using the Cloward and Piven Plan.”

    IF THAT IS ACCURATE, WITH FRESH MEMORY OF THE LATE GREAT COLD WAR, ARE WE NOW GOING TO LET OBAMA (WITH OR WITHOUT HIS BIRTH CERTIFICATE) TO WEAKEN US, UNTIL WE MEEKLY ACCEPT COMMUNISM AS THE ONLY SOLUTION? I CANNOT ACCEPT THAT AMERICA WOULD DO THIS, NOT THE AMERICA I KNOW. “NOW”, SOONER RATHER THAN LATER, IS THE TIME TO HAVE OBAMA IMPEACHED, HE AND HIS HENCHPEOPLE DULY DEALT WITH UNDER THE LAW OF THE LAND, PERHAPS THE CHARGE OF “TREASON” SHOULD HAVE A PART IN THIS “CORRECTION”. SHOULD EVERYTHING DETERIORATE INTO THE “AMERICA’S SECOND CIVIL WAR”, (AND I TRULY BELIEVE SUCH A DREADFUL EVENT MAY YET TAKE PLACE), OR IS ALL THIS JUST A BAD, BAD DREAM?
    OBAMA IS WORSE THAN GUY FAWKES, TRYING TO BLOW UP THE BRITISH PARLIAMENT !!! OBAMA SHOULD BE SIMILARLY DEALT WITH.

  7. Jared Taylor is right on all counts. Who wants to be a minority, there is strength in numbers. Whites seem to be pulling down our team. They are telling us it is better to forget all we have built up in Western Society. Better for us to embrace the shit holes of the Middle East and those who come from the region. no way. There is nothing they have I want. We are made therefore, not to honour our forefathers, not to honour the the scientists who have saved us from so many diseases, not to honour our philosophers who have give us our path to follow in life and the dangers to avoid. You know what I am getting at. Like Mr. Taylor, I dont want to live in a Ghetto, I dont want my kids to either. We came from poor circumstances two hundred years ago, and we built our nations of USA and Australia. Europe made fantastic changes in medicine, the arts and so much more. I dont know one Muslim who could create a Michaelangelo nor a da Vinci, no a Grandma Moses for that matter. They dont even wan to. They seek to destroy all of this. Why should we want to embrace a devil worshiping lot of squalid living, male dominated criminals who belt the shit ourt of their women, castrate little girls, bomb our cities, spread disease, unrest, as well as use up our social security networks, which we worked bloody hard to get to the standards we have today. We have only had our own social security in place for thirty years or thaereabouts to the standard we enjoy today. When I was raising my kids there was no dole money, no government paid child minding. If we wanted to go to work we had to find someone and pay them for their service and this is how it was.

    For our politicians who tell us we must embrace these people, is say to them, go to hell. We dont want to associate with them or their cult, or have them invading our country. Any politician who thinks this is what we want or need – is a basket case to begin with, and at best a traitor to their own people and should stand down immediately. THEY ARE JUST AS BAD AS THE PEOPLE THEY WANT US TO EMBRACE. SORRY, THEY STINK TOO MUCH FOR MY LIKING, AND I WILL NEVER SUBMIT MYSELF OR MY LOVED ONES INTO ACCEPTING THE WORST THE WORLD HAS TO OFFER, INSTEAD OF WHAT AUSTRALIA WAS ONCE ABOUT – EXCELLING TO WORLD STANDARDS. I DONT WANT TO BE A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY WITH THIRD WORLD PEOPLE.
