Even after Paris, Libertarians want open borders

 

Even after Paris, Libertarians endorse open borders

 

by Don Hank

 

The libertarian think tank Mises Institute just published an article titled ISIS May Be Our Ally Some Day. (My thanks to our friend Peter in the UK for this tip).

Expressed in the following sentence from the piece is perhaps the most dangerous error of ideological Libertarianism:

 

“In the West, since the nineteenth century, nationalism has largely filled the role of manufacturing consent to government domination, by drawing arbitrarily the contours of a fantasized historical and cultural community.”

Libertarians make the same mistake as radical leftists in that they ignore cultural identity and pretend it does not exist. I discussed this and its disastrous effects here.

Their attitude is: 50 million people share the same likes and dislikes, the same customs, the same religion and the same cultural identity? So what? It’s up to us to erase this identity to protect the world from war and enslavement.

Liberals, including Libertarians, think that it was nationalism that gave the world the Third Reich and WW II. Quite the opposite is true. It was indeed the supranational idea of a united Europe that inspired Hitler, and the idea was carried on by his former officials after the war to create the EU dictatorship, as disclosed  here and here and in this video by Edward Spalton and Rodney Atkinson, respectively.

By attempting to erase all cultural differences, Libertarianism and Leftism both seek to dominate while hypocritically endorsing “liberty.”  Instead of divide and conquer, they seek to artificially unite and conquer.

The author mentions the 19th Century as a turning point, alluding to the Treaty of Westphalia which enshrined in international law the concept of respecting the sovereignties of nations. Today’s utter disregard for national sovereignties gave us, for example, the hideous grotesquery of a shattered Libya where the US hegemon decided arbitrarily to take out Ghadaffi, a progressive and beloved secular leader who brought unprecedented prosperity by refusing to allow Islamic radicalism to get the upper hand. The author is, perhaps unwittingly, supporting this lawlessness.

The contours of a historical and cultural community they speak of are anything but arbitrary. Calling them arbitrary is indeed arbitrary in itself. The author is referring to national groupings whose constituent populations identify with each other sentimentally and intellectually. Nor is this community in any way a fantasy.

Go tell an Italian that the Italian identity is a fantasy. Be prepared to run.

But especially, do not tell a Russian that there is no such thing as a Russian identity. It’s all in his head (BTW, the Russians’ strong sense of identity is one of the main reason for the utterly irrational hatred of all things Russian that permeates the West, particularly the upper strata, who cleave to the dangerous notion of supranationality endorsed by the Mises Institute author). False modesty aside, I am particularly alert to cultural differences because of my intimate exposure to many cultures and languages over about 55 years. My analysis is not only from intuition or from a study of other people’s ideas, eg, from having read books or heard lectures, but primarily from years of experience in total-immersion experiences in the field. Why listen to an armchair philosopher when you can get it from the horse’s mouth? Listen to me: Culture is real, more real than anything libertarians or their soul mates the liberal leftists have ever written. They, along with the liberal leftists, are in fact the reality-denying fantasists who promote the dangerous fantasy of a one-world world government that has wrecked swaths of our world both under the communists of the 20th Century and under the EU.

The lie that statehood and national identity do not exist is what is bringing down Europe before our eyes, flooding it with unvetted “refugees” from terror-nurturing countries and foisting a failed monetary system and military program on its constituent states, all subservient to the US government. It has enabled a small deceitful cabal to bring an entire continent to virtual economic and social ruin.

America is on the way to such a union. GW Bush tried to foist the North American Union on us years ago. Fortunately, Americans – most of whom think of ourselves as a nation despite the ill-intentioned propaganda of the kind so cheekily represented by the Libertarians above – protested vigorously and the project was apparently scrapped. But in reality, even after the elites stopped naming its name, they stealthily pursued its goals as vigorously as before, with Bush opening our borders ever wider, allowing more and more illegal aliens into our country and even refusing to repatriate violent criminals who had entered the US illegally, as I showed here long before Donald Trump raised the issue. Obama is carrying Bush’s torch. You don’t have to name it to create a supranational union. The unnamed ones are the most dangerous.

Like all ideologies, Libertarianism must deny reality to survive and receive donations. One clue as to why we ignore Putin to our peril is that he has stated publicly that he has no ideology at all. Recently he was named the most powerful man in the world. Realism is power. Ideology is doomed to failure.

 

 

 

 

 

Islamization and Mexicanization — two designs, same architects

By Don Hank

The slow but sure Islamization of Europe, illustrated in the below-linked video, is headed this way. Dearborn Michigan is a showcase example, where Christians are forbidden to hand out tracts in many places where Muslisms would be offended.

Europe and the US are in the same basic set of hands: PLCSDs (progressives/ liberals/ communists/ socialists/ Democrats) who rule the West by controlling the media, education, film and the arts, the universities, much of the political world, etc.

The Fabian socialists started in London in the early 1880s. Karl Marx’s sister was one of them. Their avowed goal: To spread socialism and eliminate Christianity from Western culture.

How are they doing so far?

Their influence spread and spun off other like-minded groups (the Frankfurt School, the UN, the CFR, the Bilderbergs, the Trilateral Commission, the ACLU, People for the American Way, the Democrat and Socialist Parties in the US, socialist parties in Europe, Common Purpose in the UK), which spread the virus.

Their goal in Europe is being achieved in part by importing large numbers of Muslims from Africa and the Middle East to dilute the already waning Christian influence there. The result is a growing state of anarchy in the street and an untenable, often desperate social situation, for example, in many European schools, where European students are bullied mercilessly by Muslim kids.

On this side of the Atlantic, their goal is being promoted by supranational government schemes like NAFTA, the SPP (Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America, and the Trans-Texas Corridor), all of which aim to obliterate borders toward the short-term goal of achieving an EU-style borderless America with a single central government that dictates to what is left of national governments (to be reduced to puppets that only harmonize central legislation). The longer-term goal is a one-world government such that no nation or region has any significant power over its own destiny.

The huge influx of illegal aliens you see all around you is part of that plan. They are portrayed as victims, ie, the “poor,” in the media but a growing percentage have ties to the cartels that have made life unlivable and short in Mexico. They are creating crime-filled ghettos in our cities in their quest for a “better way of life.”

I guarantee that the useful idiots who lend themselves to the implementation of this scheme to help illegal aliens gain increasing privileges in our nation, including — now — the right to vote in our elections, will some day rue the day they were duped into becoming pawns in this evil game.

Here is a foretaste:

Post left at another LF column by a lady living in Germany:

Couldn’t agree more. Thanks for speaking the truth again, Don.

Perhaps I should add that I live in Germany, and we see the encroaching creep of Islamism here without a doubt.

I think of a church in Reutlingen in the south of Germany, who have spoken up against the way the Lutheran Church in the town has (I use the singular intentionally) been in recent, close fellowship with the Turkish nationalistic, fascist youth organisation, the ‘Grey Wolves’, who, any search in Google will show, are murderers and assassins, and with whom even the CIA are linked. The Lutherans had allowed them on to the church board, allowed them access to their premises, church hall, etc, all ‘in the name of dialogue’ with Muslims, in order to help them to integrate into German society.

It beats me that the ‘Pfarrer’ didn’t have the wisdom to find out for himself what sort of people these are, but perhaps he in his mistaken, humanistic, naive way, thought that he could turn them from their Jihadist thinking. If so, then he was wrong. A video was made of a Grey Wolves meeting in the Lutheran church hall, presumably by one of the partaking group, with the Cross and other Christian symbols covered up, showing the Grey Wolves members saluting, (very similar to the Hitler salute, forbidden in Germany). The video was put on You Tube and caused a furore when the local press got hold of it.

The Lutheran church then accused the free church of being religious intolerant fundamentalists, and even said that they had filmed the meeting, which any common logic would make clear, was a ridiculous accusation. They then ostracised, cold-shouldered and slandered the free church. The sad thing is that other churches in town did the same, pandering to the fear of the Grey Wolves, who hold even other Muslims in terror, unwilling to take a stand for the truth. They said that the free church was destroying the town’s ‘Christian unity’. If that’s Christian unity then I’m the Pope.

Nationalists International

Nationalists International

Not even out of the box and we’re already drawing enemy fire!

By Donald Hank

I recently wrote a letter to some friends essentially with the text of the following article:

A speech by Brian Gerrish shows that the organization, Common Purpose, was formed for the purpose of ramming the European Union down the throat of the UK. Their ultimate goal is a world government that would supersede national governments, just as the EU has largely superseded European nations, bypassing the people’s will.

Common Purpose is part of the International Leftist elite that wants to micromanage your country, whatever that country may be. Their bullying tactics are typical and can be traced to the earliest communist manipulators of the masses, particularly Antonio Gramsci, who proposed putting each individual in a “psychic iron cage,” making it almost impossible for people to speak their minds when their ideas are at loggerheads with the left’s agenda.

In addition to the text shown above, I had included, near the end, the following paragraphs for my European readers, mostly British friends:

I therefore propose the formation of an international organization to fight back, and I propose the name Nationalists International.

This name will sound like an oxymoron, and in the absence of a common enemy, it would be. But recall that the Soviet communists once pleaded “workers of the world unite” and the International Elite is following the very same socialist ideal. They want power, namely, your individual power and the political power of your nation to function as an independent and sovereign entity free of interference from any outside nation or group.

I was pleasantly surprised to receive a great number of very favorable replies from activists over there, including one long, thoughtful response from a member of the EU Parliament who wants to pursue the idea of Nationalists International using a name of his own invention that conveys the same idea.

Just this morning, someone apparently with connections sent me the following copy of a notice received from a Green member of parliament:

Angelika Beer (MEP) and Gisela Kallenbach (MEP) invite you to

The Green Conference  on “Right-wing extremism in Europe”

European Parliament in Brussels

15th April 2009

15:00-18:00

Room ASP 01 G2

Our guests are Dr. Christopher Husbands from the London School of Economics and Political Science, Christoph Busch, University of Cologne, Anetta Kahane, President of the Amadeu-Antonio-Foundation, and Pascale Charhon of “European Network against Racism”.

The conference will look at different forms of right-wing extremism in Europe and discuss cross-border civil society strategies against the far right. We want to explore possibilities for a common platform against right-wing extremism and racism in order to stand united against a “nationalist international” at the European Parliament elections 2009.

I was pleasantly surprised to see this because it was, in a very roundabout way, a genuine compliment. I, a retired easy-going gent armed with nothing but a computer and the truth, was now obviously seen as a very formidable enemy of the International Left, represented by 2 scared and trembling little products of the German indoctrination system cynically called the “Universität.” Angelika Beer and Gisela Kallenbach saw it necessary to pull out the nuclear option, ie, the race card, against harmless little old me and sincerely believe, in their deluded way, that they are doing something important by trying to muzzle me, not realizing that, should they succeed, a thousand others would spontaneously rise up and defend the truth. 

It later turned out that Brian Gerrish himself had posted my letter at his site just today:

http://www.cpexposed.com/comments.php

I do not know whether Gisela and Angelika had read this, although that would be the most likely explanation for their campaign against Nationalists International.

I emailed Gisela, the writer of the above euronazi email, and said

“I am the originator of the group Nationalists International that you mention in your email (attached). We are not racists. My wife is of African and American Indian descent, so my daughter is a hybrid, and further, my son is half Chinese. Do you want to talk about this?”

I love stuff like this. I am chuckling as I write. They apparently think a balding 65 year old man with creaky joints and a paunch is so much of a threat they have to declare all-out war against him.

I find it extremely difficult – nay, impossible – to take myself as seriously as these sad, humorless leftist busybodies take me.

If you are as amused as I am by this lunacy, why not drop these poor befuddled ladies a line at:

gisela.kallenbach-assistant@europarl.europa.eu

Ask them if they really think one free human being in America armed with nothing but a computer and the art of language is such a dire threat that they have to hold an emergency high-level conference in Europe looking for strategies to ward him off! You are also certainly free to remind them that in your country, calling someone a racist is an offense with legal consequences — unless you can prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that the accused is indeed a racist, and the burden of proof may be fairly heavy. Perhaps they can run all over Europe slandering people with relative impunity, but when they turn their slander against someone outside their turf, that may be a different matter. Are they prepared to accept the consequences?

All right, international friends of truth and freedom, it didn’t take long to find out who our enemy is. He has dutifully announced himself.

Now, in the name of God, let us stand, gird ourselves, and engage him, not in animosity but in love, prayer and compassion.

After all, he is empty and lost in a godless world of his own choosing and his own making. With a little wisdom and patience, and with much sincere prayer, we can help free him of his self-inflicted shackles.
