The Mental State of the Political Elites: Part II

Again,
this column is also about the epistemological epilepsy of our political elite.
And the political elite’s unreal metaphysics.
As
noted in an illustration tag in Part One, the sustainability of a European
Islamic State, which is all the Continent’s current immigration policies can
lead to and end with, will depend in large part on the ignorance of its
itinerate and hapless citizens – Muslim and non-Muslim alike. Once it reaches
that stage, and Shariah law becomes the legal byword, non-Muslims will be
obliged to assimilate into a largely Islamic culture.
Rank-and-file
Muslims will be naturally ignorant and will have no problem adjusting to the new
society of diversity. Non-Muslims, however, will have great difficulty keeping
their mouths and minds shut as they are relegated to second-class citizen
status.
To
ensure that Germans, Swedes, French, and so on participate peaceably in this
unprecedented reverse assimilation with
the least possible problems, non-Muslims must, first, remain ignorant of the
true peril to their lives and futures by becoming dhimmis, and, second, be prohibited from voicing their objections
under the penalty of Shariah law. For Shariah law will replace whatever legal
codes exist now in those countries. Current legal codes, amended to conform and
mirror those of Shariah, will be but paper tigers. The judicial status of
non-Shariah law will be but a sham.

The
European Union Commissioner who advocates across-the-board censorship of any
opposition to the conversion from Western legal codes to Islamic codes and the
subjugation of Europeans to Islam, is Vera Jourova, a Czech who is the EU’s
Commissioner for Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality, in the Juncker
Commission. Her remarks, voiced and recorded at the Colloquium on Fundamental
Rights — Tolerance and Respect: Living better together in Brussels on October
2, 2015, are the most blatantly evil of the trio of bureaucrats I have
discussed here. As Fjordman noted in his Gates of Vienna article, “The
EU Elites’ Positive View of Islam
” from October 14th, “Commissioner Jourova
indicated that the EU will clamp down even harder on so-called ‘hate speech’
directed against immigrants.” Here are her venomous recommendations
at the Colloquium:
“If freedom of expression is
one of the building blocks of a democratic society, hate speech on the other
hand, is a blatant violation of that freedom. It must be severely punished. As
some of you noted, over the past few weeks, we have witnessed a lot of
solidarity towards refugees. But we have seen a surge of xenophobic hate speech.
Some of you advocated enrolling the help of online intermediaries such as
Google or Facebook to take down hate speech from the web. Other participants
rather underlined promoting the use of counter-narratives. You also highlighted
the need for clearer procedures to prosecute those who spread hate speech
online. I was pleased to hear media and Internet providers’ experiences and to
hear their commitment to work with us. I fully agree with you on these lines of
action.
German Chancellor Angela
Merkel pulled an Obama-style “hot mike” gaffe of her own when she was  heard imploring Mark Zukerberg of Facebook to
do something to curb or eliminate “hate speech” from Facebook. The Washington
Times
reported on September 30th that:
German Chancellor Angela Merkel was overheard on a hot mike
confronting Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg over anti-immigrant posts, amid
complaints from her government that the social network isn’t doing enough to
curtail racist comments.
The two were overheard exchanging words on a live transmission
broadcast on the United Nations website, as participants took their seats at a
U.N. development summit in New York on Saturday, Bloomberg reported.
Well,
that would be a spectacle: a high-tea summit on “hate speech” between two
portly frumps who would want to plot the best way to wash your mouth and mind
out with soap, or perhaps with battery acid. To continue with Jourova’s own
brand of hate “speech”:
“As was said this morning,
Internet knows no borders. I intend to bring together IT companies, business,
national authorities and civil society around the table in Brussels to tackle
together online hate speech. I will discuss this with EU Justice Ministers next
week. Let me now address the burning issue of hate crimes and data collection.
We clearly need better and serious recording of hate crimes to ensure
appropriate investigation, prosecution and sentencing. It is indeed high time
that Member States fully implemented EU law to combat racism and xenophobia.”
She
makes no distinction between “hate speech” and “hate crimes,” as defined by
Western legal codes (in Shariah law, they are mere instances of blasphemy). The
very concept of “hate crimes,” however, is illegitimate in the first instance,
because a crime committed and motivated from “hate” should be treated as a mere
felony. Speech (other than libel and slander) and motivations should not be
treated as “crimes.” Allow that to happen, and you’re on the road to censorship.
However,
Jourova’s notion of “hate speech” as “hate crime” echoes Winston Smith’s
observation that “thoughtcrime” does
not entail death. Thoughtcrime is death. It’s guaranteed. Think bad
thoughts, and you’re doomed. It’s best not to think.

“Racism
and xenophobia”? Aside from the expected Weimar period Communist-Nazi style enmities
and street battles between Sunnis and Shi’ites, Turks and Somalis and what have
you that are occurring in Sweden and Germany, Muslims to a maquette hate infidel
whites and Jews
(who are nominally “white” though I hate having to make the distinction) and
will rape, murder, or assault them at the first opportunity. And, given the
record of Muslim “foreigners” in terms of their behavior in Western countries
once their ongoing hordes have invaded the Continent – by leaving behind mountains
and fields and train stations and town squares of trash, feces, food, water containers,
donated tents, baby carriages, and furniture and other things behind in their
wake – can anyone blame especially the Germans for fearing them? Or the Austrians?
Or the Hungarians?
She
makes no mention, of course, of the “hate
speech
” of Muslims in print and on the Internet and in the airwaves, nor of
the “hate speech” spoken in countless mosques in Europe, the U.K., and the U.S.,
speech calculated to incite hatred for infidels, for the Western countries
these imams and their congregations have settled in, and for Western
civilization in general. After all, Jourova and Merkel say, Muslims have been
victims of “racism” (even though Islam isn’t a race, it comes in a variety of
colors and hues) and “xenophobia,” never mind the “no-go” areas of every major
European capital into which infidels and especially infidel women venture at
their own peril.  Who can blame them for
being so angry at non-Muslims and their Allah-condemned legal and social
institutions? They’re all “victims.”
It’s
of no concern to Merkel and Jourova that while Muslims maintain their own
Shariah-bound satrapies in these cities, which not even European police and
fire fighters and many Western journalists want to enter (not that they’re much
welcome anyway) because they get stones
and other objects thrown at them, the male residents don’t mind making forays
into Dar al-Harb for a bit of rape,
robbery, gang assaults, and murder.
Jourova
and Merkel might admit that these crimes are deplorable, but they won’t acknowledge
that these regularly recurring crimes are not considered crimes at all by Islam
and Islam’s chief scholars and spokesmen, that they are part and parcel of Islamic
ideology. They don’t want to know it, and if you persist in telling them or
anyone else that, they will want to have you arrested and punished for “defaming”
a “great religion.”
The
Koran and the Hadith they’ve read must been translated by Walt Disney.
And
not wanting to know about it, not wanting to hear about it, not wanting to see
the abundant evidence of it, points to a very serious –and, as it turns out, a
very dangerous – state of mind that would best be contained in the same kind of
insane asylum in which Antonio Salieri
expired.
The
European Union – shortly to be unofficially known as the European Caliphate –
is being run by men and women who have displayed marked symptoms of dementia, a condition that is quite in
sync with Islam’s own brand.

    Better go on that 'grand tour' sooner rather than later (and/or) revisit old favorite European haunts today rather than tomorrow. To paraphrase The Third Man/Orson Welles: white Europeans don't have a future.
