“The worst evil ever devised by man” 9

Are some Europeans waking up to the fact that their countries are slowly but steadily being colonized and subjugated by a barbarian horde out of the Dark Ages?

Are they ready to die opposing it?

Lars Hedegaard, the intrepid Danish historian and journalist, who was nearly assassinated last year by a jihadist, gave an impassioned speech on May 4, Denmark’s Day of Liberation from the World War II-era Nazi occupation.

He spoke at Copenhagen’s Grove of Commemoration for the patriots who gave their lives as members of the Danish Resistance against the Nazi occupation 1940-1945.

We quote from Dr. Andrew Bostom’s report of what he said:

The prophet’s followers certainly do not lack for passion or singleness of purpose. How about the rest of us?

Remember our glorious forebears – and reflect. … Thousands were willing to risk their lives [in the Second World War] to defend the inalienable gift that is Denmark and the freedom without which nothing matters. Today hardly anybody talks about Denmark as our common home and even fewer can imagine being part of a freedom front. That is very strange, for the enemies of freedom who have entered our country and gained powerful allies among our ruling elites certainly do not lack for determination. They know what they want – which is to replace our man-made laws and democratic order that are the results of a thousand-year history with a law they claim has been handed down by a god and therefore cannot be changed.

It is a god who says that the entire world belongs to him and that it is the duty of every believer to engage in holy war until there is not a single human being who has not accepted his tyranny. This god’s prophet has created an ideology that has left a trail of blood through 1400 years of history and compared to which Nazism and Communism were like ripples on history’s surface.A few decades ago this ideology – and the project of conquest for which it stands – gained a foothold in our country. And here it will have the same consequences as in any other place to which it has spread. There is no reason to enumerate these consequences. Anyone with eyes to see will notice them or can read about them.

Nonetheless we are told that this ideology of conquest is an enrichment and if something is an enrichment, you cannot get enough of it. Consequently our political and spiritual masters see to it that Islam’s influence grows by the day and fall over each other to comply with every demand raised by the prophet’s strongmen. While doing this, our masters accuse everyone who refuses to toe the line of being racists and Fascists. Why don’t we – all of us common people – turn our backs on political parties, politicians, intellectual icons, journalists and priests who endeavor to destroy our country? So far we are not in a situation similar to the one faced by our comrades in the anti-Nazi Resistance. We can still speak our minds. We don’t have to vote for parties that open a door to evil and thus hand over their compatriots to foreign oppressors. We can stop buying newspapers that fill us with lies and propaganda. And if our priest agitates for an ideology he has promised to oppose, we can attend another church. We can refuse to give money to the erection of our enemies’ barracks and command and control centers.

Some of us will lose our lives because we refuse to submit. It cannot be otherwise. We must be realists. And if we are realists, we acknowledge that we must eventually die no matter how we have chosen to live our lives. And we will realize that if we remain silent when faced with the worst evil ever devised by man, we are already dead anyway. It takes a measure of courage to stand up to our country’s enemies and their Danish collaborators and facilitators. But we must consider how much more courage it will take in 10 or 20 years when the enemy has become more numerous and well entrenched. And consider what courage we demand from our children the day they stand with their backs against the wall and have to choose between freedom and submission.

If we do not act now when we still have the option of fighting for our liberty and constitutional order with peaceful and democratic means, what will our descendants think of us? Surely there will be no monuments in our honor. We will have monuments of infamy: ”Here lie the sorry remains of a generation that failed in the fight against evil. Damn their memory!” So far there are few signs that we have realized what we are up against and even fewer that the majority are prepared to accept the consequences of such realization.

People think they can tame the beast by speaking nicely to it. They think they can save their skin by bowing their heads, singing the praise of multiculturalism, showing obeisance to barbarians – and delivering their countrymen to persecution. That may succeed for a time – until the day we realize that the Danish lion has been shot and its skin sold and that we shall never get our country or our freedom back.

Look at what has happened wherever the prophet’s ideology has gained the upper hand. And ask the obvious question: What makes us believe that it will be different here?

The evil ideology’s spokesmen and champions have not a second’s doubt that they are following Allah’s command and will get their reward for our oppression in Paradise. They laugh in their beards at our stupidity and cowardly attempts to please them. But of course they are happy that Danes make their power grab all that easier. …

We are gathered here surrounded by the bodies of those whose conviction was strong enough that they risked their lives in the battle for Denmark’s freedom.

Please observe a minute of silence – for them and for us.

He is right that the Danes – as all Europeans – must choose now between freedom and slavery.

“The worst evil ever devised by man” is the ideology that is intolerant, cruel, murderous, intent on world conquest, and totalitarian in its tyranny. It  goes by various names: Nazism, Marxism, Communism, Bolshevism, Islam.

In October, 1938, when the threat of bellicose Nazism hung over Europe, Winston Churchill made a speech in the House of Commons in which he said:

This is only the beginning of the reckoning. This is only the first sip, the first foretaste of a bitter cup which will be proffered to us year by year unless by a supreme recovery of moral health and martial vigour, we arise again and take our stand for freedom as in the olden time.

Lars Hedegaard’s speech is admirably brave. He  has been prosecuted for saying less. (See our posts, Speaking freely for freedom, February 9, 2013, and The new heresy trials, February 12, 2013.) A jihadist has tried to kill him. And still he speaks out loud and clear against the evil of Islam. But  there are not many like him in Denmark or anywhere in Europe.

We see no signs that Britons, Danes, or any indigenous Europeans, in any effective numbers, are ready to take their stand for freedom “as in the olden time”.

    What an awesome speech, by such a courageous man.
    Totalitarian, supremacist, barbaric and inhuman Islam IS the “worst evil ever devised by man”, and it is the most unforgivable crime to appease it and allow it to slither it’s way in among us.
    For this crime ALONE our entire government deserves hanging, yet they get Nobel prizes and second terms in office, instead.
    This is probably the same thing that happened to the civilization that built the pyramids, too – wiped out by the barbarian hordes.

      What is really insane to me is how powerful someone’s beliefs can be to other people around them.

      These ideas all started long, long ago. They progressed as tradition, and were never questioned in depth by the sheep who swallowed the ideas…….hook, line, and sinker.

      • liz

        Right. It really is mind boggling. We take civilization for granted, but it really is a rare and unique thing in the context of history, in which this mindless barbarity is more the norm.

      • Andrew M

        I wholeheartedly agree with your suggestion to question bad ideas. Good ideas deserve questioning too, since there’s no other way to form better ideas.

        Our culture of political correctness is an idea worse than Islam in many ways. It blunts the spears of Reason which alone have the power to lay Islam and other garbage ideas to waste. To its strategic credit, Islam will take all of the useful idiots it can to advance its heinous agenda of world Sharia.

        I yield the balance of my time to Terence McKenna and his brilliant excoriation of relativism. It’s not specifically about Islam, but the words are none the less germane:

        • REALBEING

          A teacher of mine constantly told us in his study groups to test everything that comes to us. if it works, it will be strengthened…if it fails to meet the test, it will gradually fall away, being replaced by that which does.

          The problem as I see it is there are too many folks out there who don’t know enough to take responsibility for the trash that comes across their mind’s “Gatekeeper” along with the important stuff.

        • liz

          Thanks- great observations!
          Relativism really has paved the way for political correctness and “multiculturalism”, which forces on everyone the pretence that barbaric stupidity like Islam is “culturally enriching”, blah blah blah.

        • Great video. Thanks so much, Andrew M. I’ll put it on our front page tomorrow.

          • liz

            Woe. A shamanist? How weird! Great example then of how even highly intelligent people can justify irrational beliefs to themselves.

          • Andrew M

            I’m sure Terence would appreciate us goring his oxen, too!

            Indeed, some of the things he says are out there, but I like how ardently he pursued his happiness and spoke without reservation. I always find him enjoyable even if he’s not always agreeable.
