Pro-Cologne - More Views
Due to continued delays in posting I was not able to post this link from La Yijad en Eurabia to photos of last weekend's demonstration in Cologne, Germany. Possibly you have all seen them and have moved on to other topics of interest. But these photos focus on the counter-demonstration of the Left. Particularly striking is the one (above) showing the support of homosexuals for the mosque project. We seem to be moving in the direction of total acceptance of Islam by some of those most likely to be persecuted under Islamic rule: homosexuals, women, Catholic and Jewish religious leaders (not all of them, of course, but major figures). If these "progressive" groups and individuals are digging their own grave, it doesn't seem to bother them one whit.
For the gays and feminists, ANYTHING is better than a return to the Christian moral order, even a blood cult. In fact, IMHO, they are attracted to the blood cult, fascinated by the power it wields, and by the way it instills fear in ordinary folk like you and me.
Not every conservative was enthusiastic about pro-Köln. The Editrix, writing at her blog (thanks to the reader who sent the link), sheds some light on what she perceives as the true motives of the anti-Islamic European Right. At first I had some trouble following her argument, but the gist of it is that many right-wing European parties are only using the Islamization of Europe as a convenient way to gain supporters, and when push comes to shove, it will be revealed that these parties are much more Nazi in their philosophy than American conservative observers are willing (or knowledgeable enough) to admit.
I know very little about the right-wing parties of Europe, but the party of Geert Wilders (and Wilders himself) seems completely viable, as does Vlaams Belang. The Front National is something else. It still has good people in its ranks, but I no longer regard it as anti-Islamic, though caution dictates that I refrain from calling it pro-Islamic. Yet, that is close to what I believe. Its leader has certainly called for restricted immigration, but has taken no stand on Islam itself, as a force out to conquer Europe and America. He has seen to it that the Nazi streak in the Front National is real and overt for all to see, and not merely an empty accusation from the liberal media. His obviously pre-meditated provocations are designed to attract a cult following, to slowly rid the FN of some of its best adherents and ultimately to discredit the traditionalist cause. In this, The Editrix is right - we must beware of European right-wing parties.
The fact remains that they are still the only ones saying ANYTHING about Islamization. The danger (which is being borne out) is that these parties will ultimately be lumped together in the public's mind as being all alike (yet no two people could be more different than Wilders and Le Pen) and all equally demonizeable. It is essential that people be able to differentiate a man like Wilders from a man like Le Pen. Some of the rhetoric is similar, that is true, but the spirit, the intent, the sincerity of purpose are radically different.
