The tyrants of Europe let in the barbarians – and stifle protest 6

Between 1938 and 1945, most of the countries of Europe, under Germany’s lead, scattered or killed their assimilated, highly contributing, law-abiding Jewish citizens. Now these countries, finding themselves short of population and not breeding much themselves (Germany has the lowest fertility rate of them all), feel guilty about it. Not guilty enough to do their utmost to support Israel, the refuge of the remnant of European Jews perpetually under attack by the vast Arab world about them and the vaster Islamic world. No. But guilty enough to want to prove that they are not “racists”.  They do this – at the same time remedying their problem of under-population – by inviting millions of the denizens of Arab and other Islamic lands into their countries, to become an unassimilable, welfare-dependent, violent threat to their very existence as nations.

That is to say, their political leaders are doing it. Most citizens don’t want it. But are not allowed to say so.

To prove their virtue, European leaders are becoming ever more tyrannical. 

Douglas Murray, who has the gift of clear sight, writes at Gatestone:

It was only a few weeks ago that Facebook was forced to back down when caught permitting anti-Israel postings, but censoring equivalent anti-Palestinian postings.

Now one of the most sinister stories of the past year was hardly even reported. In September, German Chancellor Angela Merkel met Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook at a UN development summit in New York. As they sat down, Chancellor Merkel’s microphone, still on, recorded Merkel asking Zuckerberg what could be done to stop anti-immigration postings being written on Facebook. She asked if it was something he was working on, and he assured her it was.

At the time, perhaps the most revealing aspect of this exchange was that the German Chancellor – at the very moment that her country was going through one of the most significant events in its post-war history – should have been spending any time worrying about how to stop public dislike of her policies being vented on social media. But now it appears that the discussion yielded consequential results.

Last month, Facebook launched what it called an “Initiative for civil courage online,” the aim of which, it claims, is to remove “hate speech” from Facebook – specifically by removing comments that “promote xenophobia”.  Facebook is working with a unit of the publisher Bertelsmann, which aims to identify and then erase “racist” posts from the site. The work is intended particularly to focus on Facebook users in Germany. At the launch of the new initiative, Facebook’s chief operating officer, Sheryl Sandberg, explained that, “Hate speech has no place in our society — not even on the internet.” She went to say that, “Facebook is not a place for the dissemination of hate speech or incitement to violence.” Of course, Facebook can do what it likes on its own website. What is troubling is what this organization of effort and muddled thinking reveals about what is going on in Europe.

The mass movement of millions of people – from across Africa, the Middle East and further afield – into Europe has happened in record time and is a huge event in its history. …

As well as being fearful of the security implications of allowing in millions of people whose identities, beliefs and intentions are unknown [and to the extent that their belief and intentions are known, are abominable – ed] and – in such large numbers – unknowable, many Europeans are deeply concerned that this movement heralds an irreversible alteration in the fabric of their society. Many Europeans do not want to become a melting pot for the Middle East and Africa, but want to retain something of their own identities and traditions. Apparently, it is not just a minority who feel concern about this. Poll after poll shows a significant majority of the public in each and every European country opposed to immigration at anything like the current rate.

And it just so happens to turn out that, lo and behold, this idea of “racist” speech appears to include anything critical of the EU’s current catastrophic immigration policy.

By deciding that “xenophobic” comment in reaction to the crisis is also “racist”, Facebook has made the view of the majority of the European people (who, it must be stressed, are opposed to Chancellor Merkel’s policies) into “racist” views, and so is condemning the majority of Europeans as “racist”.

This is a policy that will do its part in pushing Europe into a disastrous future.

Because even if some of the speech Facebook is so scared of is in some way “xenophobic”, there are deep questions as to why such speech should be banned. In lieu of violence, speech is one of the best ways for people to vent their feelings and frustrations. Remove the right to speak about your frustrations, and only violence is left.

Weimar Germany – to give just one example – was replete with hate-speech laws intended to limit speech the state did not like. These laws did nothing whatsoever to limit the rise of extremism; it only made martyrs out of those it pursued, and persuaded an even larger number of people that the time for talking was over.

The sinister reality of a society in which the expression of majority opinion is being turned into a crime has already been seen across Europe. Just last week, reports from the Netherlands told of Dutch citizens being visited by the police and warned about posting anti-mass-immigration sentiments on Twitter and other social media.

In this toxic mix, Facebook has now – knowingly or unknowingly – played its part. The lid is being put on the pressure cooker at precisely the moment that the heat is being turned up. A true “initiative for civil courage” would explain to both Merkel and Zuckerberg that their policy can have only one possible result.

    Merkel says Germany has opened its borders to Syrian “refugees” because its population is not procreating fast enough to sustain their economy.

    Gee, bet those 6 million murdered Jews would come in handy right about now. Can she imagine how strong and advanced Europe and the world would be if Hitler and her country had not cranked up that hideous killing machine? Germany would be stronger and so would the rest of the Western world. It’s a crying shame.

    Fast forward 70 years and we now have that same country, Germany, importing yet another hideous killing machine – the Islamic terrorist. Those of us concerned about the future of Western civilization say, shame on you, Merkle! as your country and others will once again suffer at the hands of yet another dreadful and destructive German leader.

      Exactly! And if they had bothered to give their citizens a choice – “you can either get busy and have more children now, or we’ll allow these barbarians in to parasite off of you, rape you, terrorize you, and breed like rabbits til they outnumber you” – I don’t think it’s a question what their choice would have been.
      But no one’s been given a choice in the matter by these despicable traitors.

    I do not expect the Germans as a whole to idly stand by and watch the invasion of Afrikaners and Middle Easterners to destroy a most glorious culture and the crowning jewel of Europe..economically and otherwise. I am prepared for Violence and uprising (absolutely necessary) if Merkel isn’t removed and these invaders not returned to where they came

    • Thank you, 6Cinnamongirl3. I like what you say. And I agree. Yes to violence against the invasion and colonization, since it is obviously going to be necessary. (Just one small detail, if you’ll forgive the correction: “Afrikaner” has a specific meaning. It means Afrikaans-speaking white South Africans. For the people of Africa generally, the word is Africans.)

    Good point – the irony of Germans assuaging their guilt over the Jews, not by supporting Israel, but by allowing the invasion of worse Jew haters than Hitler!
    On top of that, solving your underpopulation problem by allowing this invasion is about like trying to cure a cold with the Ebola virus.
    And while everyone is distracted by the invasion, they steal our right to free speech.
    If the total breakdown of democracy and civilization is what they’re after, they’re doing a pretty good job of accomplishing it so far.

    violent insurrection is the ONLY way to save western civilization and humanity as a whole.

    When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.

    the government does not fear the people because the people keep saying violent insurrection is of the table. Politician do not fear the electorate so they do as they please, elections do not mater because of voter fraud.
