Had the French government adopted a consistent policy of protecting the freedom of speech, nothing like today’s attack on the satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo, would ever have occurred. Muslims and Islam would not be so visible in France had the government also put out the unwelcome mat to Muslim “refugees,” as most European and American governments have. With the Muslim “refugees” and “asylum seekers” came Islam, on one hand, the cruddiest “religion” on the face of the earth, and, on the other, a totalitarian system of slavery and submission, applicable to Muslims and infidels alike.
To British Foreign Secretary Sir Edward Grey is attributed the memorable line, “The lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our life-time,” at the onset of World War I. The lamps have been going out in Europe for decades as the invitation to invade (aka, “immigrate”) was broadcast by European governments to any and all Muslims who sought refuge or asylum from living under their own creed in various pest holes in the Middle East and Africa.
These hordes came expecting to abide by their decrepit creed and also benefit from the various European welfare systems and a higher standard of living. And they came expecting the host countries (think of all European Muslim populations as parasites thriving off their hosts) to submit and defer to Islam in all cases and instances, from food served in restaurants and schools to public dress to Christmas decorations.
Dutch politician and champion of freedom of speech Geert Wilders paraphrased Grey in a speech before his 2011 trial for violating Dutch “hate speech” laws.
The lights are going out all over Europe. All over the continent where our culture flourished and where man created freedom, prosperity and civilization. Everywhere the foundation of the West is under attack….
The lights are going out all over Europe. Anyone who thinks or speaks individually is at risk. Freedom loving citizens who criticize islam, or even merely suggest that there is a relationship between islam and crime or honour killing, must suffer and are threatened or criminalized. Those who speak the truth are in danger….
France has banned the burqa in public, and intervened militarily in Mali, but its overall stance against the depredations of Islam has been haphazard, piecemeal and ineffective. Regardless of the kneejerk actions taken by the French government, Paris’s lights have been dimming steadily over the course of generations (you can thank Existentialist thinkers like Jean-Paul Sartre for setting the moral and intellectual tone). So have the lights in every European nation been dimming. The country that tolerates the burning of nearly 1,000 cars every New Year’s Eve is not a country that has much of a future. Its anemic, desultory policies to combat the Islamization of France are pathetic…
