These are Not Pro-Palestine Marches. They are Victory Parades.
The funniest part is that in US and Europe, the people most screaming about "colonizers" are themselves literal colonizers. That's the story that has to flip. No, it's not the white colonizers from 100+ years ago who no longer exist, it's the third world masses who are actively colonizing the West. The difference is the white colonizers brought modernity to the third-world, and the new colonizers are simply parasites who contribute nothing. Oh, except for food carts. What would we do without the food carts?
The irony is that two greatest imperial colonizers in the history of mankind are the Muslims and the Chinese. Islam was spread at the point of sword, with only the Indonesians converting peaceably over several centuries, and everyone else either being forced to convert, put to death, sold into slavery, or driven out, in the past 1500 years. The Chinese wrote the book on colonizing others peoples, with over 3,000 years of experience. They were invading and colonizing others when the progenitors of everyone reading this were living in mud huts trying to figure out where their next meal was coming from and trying not to get eaten themselves.
You are correct: we are being colonized by some of the worst people imaginable, who have nothing in common with us and have very different cultural and religious values, all of which are inconsistent with our own. A minority of them will change but, as you can see all of Europe with their very large self-imposed no-go zone ghettos, we are just behind them.
Peachy is 100% right. We are being colonized by hostile aliens. Some people call that an invasion. It’s been arranged by our oligarchs and transnational cartels in conjunction with dysfunctional loser countries from across the globe. They pay off the politicians and fund the NGOs with reassuring names who make bank while advancing a destructive agenda. You want to know what you did to deserve this? It’s not because you’re a racist or a colonizer or that you hate women or deny climate change. Those insults and the emotional spectacles that accompany them are a Kabuki masquerade to soften you up while you get repeatedly mugged. What you did, the crimes underlying all of this were the crimes of tolerance and generosity. The United States in particular , the Western liberal democracies in general are too nice, too soft. The citizens are too fair minded. So they’ve been getting screwed over for generations. I’m not talking about the trash running the government. I’m talking about your average American who believes in fair play and decency. Most of our problems are because of appeasement of giving an inch to whiny losers who want it all in a silver platter to make up for crimes they didn’t suffer and that we didn’t commit. Accommodationist policies with bad actors leads to bad outcomes, every time. So now incrementalism sheds its skin and you have a big shiny death cult pit viper spitting venom in your eye. Surprise! No surprise. China, Iran, Mexico, Venezuela, North Korea, the Islamist terrorists and other troublemakers succeed because we let them. Well if we give them “X”, then they will change all their bad behavior and become just like us. If the geniuses at CIA and State can control them, we can work with them.
If we teach them how to behave, they will behave. No. They will take our money and our goodwill and stab us in the neck. The world does not universally think like we do. And they show you that. It’s right there to see. But our power class gets rich and fucks it up over and over again because it works for THEM. Not for you. And here we are. We are becoming a dysfunctional third world country. The signs are everywhere.
The anti intellectual racist Arabs and their brainwashed “educated” college student minions are free to go back to the wonderfully progressive lands from which they came from. Once there they can point out that none of those lands were originally home to Arabs but rather colonized by emigration and conflicts. I’m sure those in power would be happy to listen to their thoughts on the subject.
I think feminism and libertarianism, combined with conservatives' general inability to hold any line on any issue, have landed us in this present moment. The libertarian's obsession with "individual" "rights" (c.f., Nick Gillespie) has resulted in an ever more degraded culture. By failing to demand that all American children be indoctrinated with a love of country, and by allowing the almost complete marginalization of Christianity, we have brought our beloved nation to the most dangerous point is has ever witnessed.
Feminism is simply a plague. It is nothing more than a mechanism for destroying the family and creating dependency. Both have now paved the way for full-on communism (in its present race-centered form).
I only hope that my children and (someday) grandchildren can experience anything close to the sense of safety and the standard of living that I have enjoyed during my lifetime. We will see.
Using the term "resistance" any atrocity is morally justified, regardless, cheered on by the masses of Western Useful Idiots ...
Well said Peachy!
It is indeed sobering to realize that the same “Americans”🙄 that are cheering what the savages did to the Israeli ravers would/will just as readily support the same slaughter here in the States if it was being done to the deplorables et al.
I love your colonizer formula!
I sincerely believe that when you move to our nation that you absolutely, positively must leave all of your baggage behind. All of your ethnic grievances, your tit-for-tat spats, your irrational fears and hatreds--leave it in the sh*thole (thank you Mr. Trump) that you left, and remember why you left in the first place. It has no place here. If you do not do this, you do not deserve to be here, and you do not deserve the rights afforded by our Constitution. So beat it! Thank you, that is all.
Fantastic essay! I am feeling more and more colonized every day...
As Don Surber pointed out, the Jews had ruled Jerusalem for more that 2,000 years before Mohammed was born. They are the indigenous people of Palestine. Arab Muslims are the invaders/colonizers.
I wonder how many eventual terrorists swam across the Rio Grande today hidden among the masses of eventual servants here to serve rich Wokies.
The pro Hamas protestors are so woefully uninformed. Especially the LGBT-etc crowd. They apparently don't know what would be done to them in Hamas areas.
Who would have thought after 9/11 the US would open its doors to the Muslims and tell Americans who wondered if doing so was a good idea not to be so Islamophobic?
It’s so damn easy to call your shots about this stuff based on observable patterns of behavior and noticing things. Yet the people in charge miss it. I used to think they were evil and not stupid. I guess they’re evil and stupid.
Actions have consequences, some more predictable than others. America and Europe’s meritocratic elite (lol just kidding they’re retards) are belatedly discovering that importing millions people from certain parts of the world turns your county into those parts of the world, public opinion included. Whoever could have seen this coming? I guess it was all fun and games when they only hated white dudes and Christians.
Interesting times. Who is John Galt, where is Snake Plissken?
& why yes, one should stock up on metal; gold, silver and lead.
Yes, pray for peace... prepare for war. Great piece with the right amount of snark, Peach. You are a peach.
