RECONQUISTADORES: NOTES AND FRAGMENTS ON THE ISLAMIC INVASION





Masses of young men in their twenties with beards singing Allahu Akbar across Europe. It’s an invasion that threatens our prosperity, our security, our culture and identity.

Geert Wilders 


Angela Merkel

 

Contrary viewpoints from diametrically opposed politicians, and yet both are true. How can this be? Wilders is absolutely accurate; there is a de facto Islamic invasion, a contemporary setting of the Koran-mandated Hijra, or invasion by demographic. The turnstile counter is mightier than the sword. Many of the refugees are neither Syrian nor under threat. They have been in Turkey, a safe haven. ISIS have threatened to put their people on mainland Europe – some have already been discovered – with results which will undoubtedly become apparent. So Wilders, as he so often is, is right.

But Merkel is also right within the terms of her and her colleagues’ agenda for Europe. The point for these unelected oligarchs is never ‘should we change Europe’ but rather, ‘how quickly can we do this?’ The reasons for the Islamisation of Europe remain obscure, but this is part of a program. One of the great mistakes made by the commentariat on this unfolding disaster is that it is the result of government incompetence. It is not; this is what Progressivist competence looks like.

Christians are reluctant to go to refugee camps in their country of origin or transit because they are afraid of what the BBC calls ‘radical Islamist elements’, but what you and I understand as ordinary, middle-Eastern Muslims. In this way, the Muslim Brotherhood has done its first level of filtration, ensuring that what Europe gets for its forced and mawkish compassion campaign is more Islam, lots more Islam. I have written here about the range of possible reasons for the mass importation of this most inimical of ideologies, but what are we to make of this sudden ramping up of the reconquista, a mass migration seemingly exacerbated by a single photograph of a dead child on a beach, a photograph whose back-story is just as spurious as you would expect from Western Leftist media?

Firstly, it’s a win-win for the political class. If saturation-level immigration of Muslims doesn’t net them the voting bloc to ensure European expansionism – geographically and fiscally – in perpetuity, then they have imported the new Jews. If this socio-economic experiment goes wrong, the people are going to want a whipping boy. Why not give them Islam?

Secondly, there is an advantage for those of us who might be described as cultural plaintiffs. We now have a far more clearly defined idea of our immediate enemy – and they are not immigrants, but Progressivist Leftists and their client media – as well as an opportunity to witness the superiority of white European culture and civilisation to that of Islam. Or so one might be forgiven for thinking. There is, however, a problem with this chain of reasoning.

The problem lies with what Wilders refers to as ‘our culture and identity’. These things are already under serious threat from a political class determined to deracinate the white West, and the antagonistic addition of Islam may be another front in that ongoing cultural war. But the problem extends further. Not only have cultural values been deliberately eroded by the elites; the people themselves, distracted by the baubles of technological consumerism, seem to have acquiesced all too readily to the disappearance of anything like value or identity in the contemporary West. Take the case of Britain.

Those – we, the people – who object to mass-transit Muslim immigration into the laughably named United Kingdom often subscribe to a piece of faulty reasoning ourselves; that immigrants fail to take up something called ‘British values’. The fault lies in two points. British values, while they once meant something definable, have been hugely in flux since the 1960s as a direct result of neo-Socialist social engineering, and immigrants do indeed adopt British values as they stand. They just adopt the wrong ones.

Cultural values fund one of the biggest lies told by the modern media. We are told that all cultures are equal. This is, of course, demonstrably untrue. Western culture is immeasurably superior to the Islamic version, mired in superstition and Medievalism as it is. If you believe that female genital mutilation, honour killings, rape as a judicial instrument, the fundamental inequality of men and women, sacrosanct Jew-hatred, intercourse with minors and a host of other Islamic delights have their equivalent in Western culture, and may not be adversely judged by the latter, you are quite simply mentally ill and a burden to your society.

That said, what values does the West offer up as a corrective to the barbarian hordes? Consumerism, an obsession with cars, PR, advertising, sexual licence, a devotion to a lying media, false egalitarianism, unbridled materialism, the self-hatred of the ruling class… It’s hardly a second Renaissance here.

And so while Geert Wilders is right that Muslims fail to assimilate into the West, it is because they choose from the cheaper end of our range of values – IT toys, trainers, drunkenness, loutish behaviour, aggressive self-aggrandisement and self-importance – instead of the few worthwhile vestiges of social capital we still enjoy: self-reliance, communitarianism, tolerance, patriotism, good manners. These things are actually under attack by Progressivists in government, the public sector and the media far more than they are by Islam, which is simply benefiting from a cultural vacuum into which they might march.

Eventually, ordinary people will be called upon to put an end to this migratory nonsense, using whatever means they have at their disposal. The first terrorist atrocity committed by our new arrivals will prove the tipping point, I suspect, and the ruling elites should look lively, as it is more than possible that they will have lost their police forces and armed services after decades of turning them into politically correct caricatures. As always, the progressive Left is forging a world which will not be pleasant.
