Flipping the bird to Mark Steyn and the ‘Eurabia’ theory, marginally insane uber-hawk Ralph Peters decides hatin’ on Euro-weenie welfare statists trumps trendy Islamophobia:
Don’t let Europe’s current round of playing pacifist dress-up fool you: This is the continent that perfected genocide and ethnic cleansing, the happy-go-lucky slice of humanity that brought us such recent hits as the Holocaust and Srebrenica.
From the French expulsion of the Huguenots right down to the last century’s massive ethnic cleansings, Europeans have never been shy about showing “foreigners and subversives” the door.
And Europe’s Muslims don’t even have roots, by historical standards. For the Europeans, they’re just the detritus of colonial history. When Europeans feel sufficiently provoked and threatened – a few serious terrorist attacks could do it – Europe’s Muslims will be lucky just to be deported.
update: Peters’ column gets blithely dismissed out of hand by blustery fellow traveller Dan Riehl (favourite pot-meets-kettle moment: “For all of his bluster, Peters has never impressed me as much of a thinker”), who doesn’t think (real) Europeans have the balls to commit genocide anymore:
One can’t invoke history if the population you are talking about is detached from it. Only here a few hundred years, the US is already losing touch with the rugged individualism that helped make it such a great Nation. I imagine European education is providing the same disservice to young Europeans, in spades.
It’s hard to look back to one’s history for inspiration when you’ve been taught to detest, not just it, but the principles for which it stood. Europe is increasingly multi-cultural and Peters doesn’t account for that watering down.
If only the cheese eaters still read their history books…
As I’ve said innumerable times, the native European population is split three ways: some will leave, as the Dutch (and certain French) are already doing; some will shrug and go along with the Islamization of the continent, as the ever-accelerating number of conversions suggests; and so the ones left to embrace Fascism will be a minority of an aging population. It will be bloody and messy, as I write in America Alone, but it will not alter the final outcome. If you don’t breed, you can’t influence the future.
Exactly. That’s why I propose the organisation of a ‘Mark Steyn Vasectomy Fund’ ASAP. Please, do it for the children.
TBogg lays into Steyn’s warped sexual pathology here.
