It’s been an eventful weekend. Three terror attacks, and a state of emergency in the Southeast of the United States.
- IED-style bombs placed in dumpsters in New York’s Chelsea district injure 25; police suspect that there may be unexploded secondary devices. Osama bin Laden’s son apparently “warned us” of these attacks.
- Pipe bomb explosion along the route of a Marine charity race in Seaside Park, New Jersey; no injuries, police likewise are searching for secondary devices.
- 8 stabbed at Crossroads Mall in St Cloud, MN. No deaths; attacker shot and killed by off-duty police officer, and CCW permit holder.
- A pipeline, responsible for 40% of the oil used in the Southeast, ruptured near Birmingham, Alabama last week. Gas shortages anticipated across the eastern seaboard of the United States. This was non-terror related, but you’ll understand why I’ve brought it up shortly.
It’s becoming abundantly clear that Islam has no place in the West. Even if you ignore the fact that post-Christian religions are innately heretical – even if you acknowledge that, after decades of disastrous foreign policy, a certain amount of secular blowback is inevitable – Islam has thoroughly demonstrated itself to be incompatible with the principles of Western Civilization. In many ways it’s nothing more than a totalitarian political ideology masquerading as a religion, and the subversive and violent tactics it advocates are too extreme even for the likes of Saul Alinsky.
A group of people who celebrate child molestation, suicide bombing, rape, and mendacity (taqiya), are an anathema to everything we stand for. There is simply no way to reconcile a child rapist like Mohammad with any sort of “moderate” civilized stance. It should be declared a subversive political movement, and chased off of our shores.
The greatest proof of this is in the pudding itself; that is to say, the fact that Jihadis are foolish enough to stage terror attacks during the current presidential election, is itself the demonstrable proof that they cannot be reasoned with.
On the one hand Muslims are more than happy to lie to the infidel; like the effeminate cowards that they are, they’ll preach peace while mustering their forces. On the other hand, they have no patience and no strategy. During this sensitive time, when more and more Americans are waking up to Islam’s true face, they ought to be laying low and preaching diversity. Instead, they’re pushing people into the “Basket of Deplorables”.
According to a Pew Research poll from last July, 58% of Americans thought that diversity made the country a better place to live. Given who was administering the poll, and certain quirks of American culture, this number should be taken with a grain of salt: to many Americans “diversity” means a Mexican Restaurant owned by a Marine Corp veteran of Mexican descent, rather than a community dedicated to emulating Pablo Escobar. Americans are less defensive of their culture and cuisine simply because they’re better at incorporating The Other; this doesn’t mean that they’re any less nationalistic, or demanding of new immigrants.
The presumption behind “diversity” is that the best and brightest of various peoples will come to American shores to integrate. This is, of course, nothing but left-wing propaganda – a sociological weapon used to attack the American heartland – but so long as the immigrants behaved, they could have continued their silent invasion until it was too late.
Thank God Islam is providing a wake up call. I’ll bet Pew’s numbers would look very different today.
America has been very lucky so far; the West in general has. Despite how horrific all of these terror attacks of been – despite the tragedy of every woman and child raped by these invading savages – they have yet to target our basic infrastructure.
This is where the Colonial Pipeline leak comes into play.
The infrastructure underlying our society is based upon “Just In Time” delivery. This was a business model championed by the Japanese auto industry in the 1990s; JIT focused on efficiency and organization, instead of wasting warehouse space, parts were made to order, to be delivered just in time for their application. They ran their automotive plants like the well-oiled machines they were constructing. It was an idea as brilliant and elegant as the Wankel Rotary Engine that Mazda reinvents every few years; but like the Rotary Engine, its beauty comes at the cost of fragility.
Our society has far too many choke points. Over the coming week, the Southern United States is going to see an uptick in prices across the board. Everything relies upon the transport industry; the donuts you buy at the convenience store were produced at a bakery 50, maybe 100 miles away, and delivered that very morning. Almost nothing’s local; everything’s networked.
The electrical grid is equally vulnerable. If the 9/11 terrorists had decided to attack a major electrical substation, they could have shut down New York City for a month – they might even have crashed the entire electrical grid of the United States and Canada. Thank God they merely went after a couple of office buildings.
The more you think about it, the more amazing the continued existence of our civilization becomes. A dedicated terrorist with a head on his shoulders could cause endless trouble and remain uncaught for years; we’re very lucky that the current crop of Muslims have been in-breeding themselves into mental retardation for generations.
The hour is growing late. Our civilization is on a precipice. It’s downright amazing that it hasn’t gone over already. It is incumbent upon all of us to become anti-fragile; to become rugged.
Beans, batteries, bullets, books, bandages, and bullion: keep your supply ready.
