Not having been to Europe in decades, I knew things were bad, but I didn’t know how bad until I read an article in The New American that disclosed that Christianity has essentially ceded the continent to Islam. If not the entire continent, at least everything west of the Soviet’s former slave states, who have had their fill of barbarians.
Alex Newman reports example after example of places where Islam has filled the vacuum as one European nation after another has surrendered not only its religion, but its culture, to the invaders from the south.
In Sweden, Lutheran Church bishop Eva Brunne, a lesbian, has called for crosses to be removed from churches, lest they offend the Muslim population. She has also called for creating prayer rooms facing Mecca in Lutheran churches.
In Belgium, the Provincial Committee of the Red Cross in Liège ordered crosses and crucifixes to be removed from everything, lest Muslims take offense.
In Switzerland, a lobby group representing mostly second-generation Muslims is calling for the cross to be removed from the nation’s flag.
As long ago as 2003, a Muslim successfully sued to force public schools in Italy to remove crucifixes in classrooms. And that was in Italy, home of the Vatican.
By 2017, public celebrations of Christmas had sparked controversies in virtually every European country, forcing, at the very least, name changes to remove any vestige of what the holiday was intended to celebrate. Apparently, the Muslims didn’t object to the natives gathering to celebrate winter.
In Munich, the renamed Winter Festival featured a snowman wearing a burka.
Not only have the name changes become commonplace, but Christmas carols, Nativity scenes and Christmas parties are now verboten.
In Kingston, England, the All Saints Church announced a service marking “the birthday of Prophet Mohammed and looking forward to the birthday of Jesus.” The church celebration, blasted by the remaining sane citizens of Kingston as “Chrislam,” included time for Islamic prayers.
Polls disclose that in the U.K., 930,000 Muslims attend a mosque at least once a week, while just 916,000, in spite of their far greater numbers, attend Anglican services.
In Sweden, natives are being told that they have to adopt to a new Sweden and that they need to learn how to integrate, whereas Muslims are told no such thing, lest they take offense. A TV ad shows a Somali Muslim with an Islamic head covering and is identified as the face of the new Sweden.
In Germany, women are being told to cover their heads to convey tolerance.
Before we look down our noses at them, we should keep in mind how often our own schools have turned Christmas vacations into Winter holidays and Easter vacations into Spring breaks, as if we were still ancient tribesmen praying to trees and treating the various seasons like gods.
And although there has been some letup in recent years, it wasn’t that long ago that wishing someone a Merry Christmas was frowned upon as a social gaffe like slurping one’s soup and belching in public.
In Europe, the globalists running the EU and the individual governments have determined that the roles of hosts and guests should be completely reversed, so that everything must be done to assure the comfort of the newcomers, while even requesting that the guests don’t murder the men and rape the women is regarded as an outrageous display of bad manners.
In the U.S., where Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein have managed to carve lifelong careers out of merely following the instructions of a Deep Stater named Mark Felt, the assistant director of the FBI in the 1970s, the two dummies who forced Richard Nixon to resign his office continue to increase their fortunes by attacking the latest Republican president.
Whereas Bernstein limits his workweek to occasional appearances on Never-Trump cable stations, Woodward continues writing. But now, judging by his most recent book, “Fear,” he has decided to take up fiction.
At least that is what John Kelly, James Mattis and former counsel to President Trump, John Dowd, insist is the case, denying they said any of the vicious things about the President that Woodward claims they said.
Depending on how you feel about Donald Trump, you will either believe one side or the other. But whenever it comes down to deciding who is telling the truth, one should weigh the two opposing sides against each other.
For instance, during jury selection some years ago, the defense attorney asked if I would give equal weight to sworn testimony, no matter who was testifying. I replied that I would not. “For instance,” I said, “what if a drug dealer swore to one thing and a nun contradicted him? Do you seriously expect me to believe him just because he’s taken an oath to tell the truth? You have to be kidding.”
Needless to say, I didn’t get to serve on the jury. Which is why I have such a low opinion of juries. It’s not just that, as the old joke goes, they’re composed of people too stupid to know how to avoid jury duty; it’s because in order to be seated in the first place, you’re expected to lie or at least park your commonsense at the curb outside the courthouse.
In any case, why would I not take the word of people like John Kelly and James Mattis, men who have devoted decades to serving honorably in the armed forces in defense of this nation, over that of a partisan hack who has spent a lifetime passing himself off as a journalist?
Watching the confirmation hearings of Brett Kavanaugh is even beyond my endurance, but I have seen enough to know that if I were a Democrat, I would despise my party’s base for forcing me to come off as a complete fool.
Even though people like Kamala Harris, Cory Booker and Richard Blumenthal, know they have no chance of keeping Kavanaugh off the bench, they have to pretend they need to read more than a million pages of his personal and judicial history before they come to a decision.
Going in, we all know two things for certain: The first is that these clowns have trouble reading even a single page of copy prepared by their staff when they’re objecting to a bill on the floor of the Senate, let alone a million pages without pictures; the second thing is that the Democrats on the committee have already gone on record in opposition to Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
The only reason that any of the Democrats have taken time away from their constant fund-raising activities is to display their credentials to the pinheaded voters who will decide in two years which of the morons will get to oppose Trump.
That isn’t to suggest that the hearings aren’t important to the Democrats. The Left, after all, lives or dies by court appointments. Even when the Democrats controlled the White House and Congress, they couldn’t pass federal laws that legalized abortions on demand or sanctified same-sex marriages; they had to rely on people wearing black robes, who managed to read “privacy” into the Constitution the way they had “separation of church and state,” to get it done.
One way they play the game is to refer to those judges who interpret the Constitution according to the words as written by the Framers as right-wing, although nobody in the 18th century accused Madison, Jefferson, Washington, Franklin and Adams, of being conservatives or right-wingers. Instead, they were called patriots.
Were they alive today, I dare say the framers of the Constitution would look askance at the likes of Elena Kagan, Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsberg, shake their heads and wonder what the hell they were doing on the highest court in the land.
And, what’s more, it wouldn’t be because they were women, but because they didn’t seem to have the faintest clue as to the meaning of the words inscribed in the Constitution, or even the slightest bit of curiosity.
Speaking of people way out of their depth, consider the executives at Nike who decided it would be a great marketing idea to make Colin Kaepernick the face of the company.
If I owned Nike stock, I would love to file a class action lawsuit against the boneheads for going out of their way to destroy the bottom line by deliberately pissing off the majority of Americans who despise the arrogant birdbrain.
Better yet, I’d love to be a lawyer filing the lawsuit because it’s always the class action lawyers who take home millions of dollars while their clients receive checks for $3.17, which would be enough to buy shoelaces for a $200 pair of Air Jordans or a $280 pair of Lebrons!
