The Death of Europe

European leaders talk about two things these days; preserving European values by taking in Muslim migrants and integrating Muslim migrants into Europe by getting them to adopt European values.

It does not occur to them that their plan to save European values depends on killing European values.

The same European values that require Sweden, a country of less than 10 million, to take in 180,000 Muslim migrants in one year also expects the new “Swedes” to celebrate tolerance, feminism and gay marriage. Instead European values have filled the cities of Europe with Shariah patrols, unemployed angry men waving ISIS flags and the occasional public act of terror.

European countries that refuse to invest money in border security instead find themselves forced to invest money into counterterrorism forces. And those are bad for European values too.

But, as Central European countries are discovering, European values don’t have much to do with the preservation of viable functioning European states. Instead they are about the sort of static Socialism that Bernie Sanders admires from abroad. But even a Socialist welfare state requires people to work for a living. Maine’s generous welfare policies began collapsing once Somali Muslims swarmed in to take advantage of them. Denmark and the Dutch, among other of Bernie Sanders’ role models, have been sounding more like Reagan and less like Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren.

Two years ago, the Dutch King declared that, “The classic welfare state of the second half of the 20th century in these areas in particular brought forth arrangements that are unsustainable in their current form.” That same year, the Danish Finance Minister called for the “modernization of the welfare state.”

But the problem isn’t one of modernization, it’s medievalization.

27% of Moroccans and 21% of Turks in the Netherlands are unemployed. It’s 27% in Denmark for Iraqis. And even when employed, their average income is well below the European average.

Critics pointed out in the past that a multicultural America can’t afford the welfare states that European countries have. Now that those same countries are turning multicultural, they can’t afford them either.

Europe invested in the values of its welfare state. The Muslim world invested in large families. Europe expects the Muslim world to bail out its shrinking birth rate by working and paying into the system so that its aging population can retire. The Muslim migrants however expect Europe to subsidize their large families with its welfare state while they deal some drugs and chop off some heads on the side.

Once again, European values are in conflict with European survival.

The European values that require Europe to commit suicide are about ideology, not language, culture or nationhood. But the incoming migrants don’t share that ideology. They have their own Islamic values.

Why should 23-year-old Mohammed work for four decades so that Hans or Fritz across the way can retire at 61 and lie on a beach in Mallorca? The idea that Mohammed would ever want to do such a thing out of love for Europe was a silly fantasy that European governments fed their worried citizens.

Mohammed doesn’t share European values. Nor are they likely to take hold of him no matter how often the aging teachers, who hope he gets a job and subsidizes their retirement, try to drill them into his head. Europeans expect Mohammed to become a Swede or a German as if he were some child they had adopted from an exotic country and raised as their own, and work to subsidize their European values.

The Muslim migrants are meant to be the retirement plan for an aging Europe. They’re supposed to keep its ramshackle collection of economic policies, its welfare states and social programs rolling along.

But they’re more like a final solution.

Mohammed is Fritz’s retirement plan. But Mohammed has a very different type of plan. Fritz is counting on Mohammed to work while he relaxes. Mohammed relaxes and expects Fritz to work.  Fritz is not related to him and therefore Mohammed sees no reason why he should work to support him.

European social democracy reduces society to a giant insurance plan in which money is pooled together.  But insurance is forbidden in Islam which considers it to be gambling. European social democracy expects him to bail it out, but to Mohammed, European values are a crime against Islam.
Mohammed’s Imam will tell him to work off the books because paying into the system is gambling. However taking money out of the system is just Jizya; the money non-Muslims are obligated to pay to Muslims. Under Islamic law, it’s better for Mohammed to sell drugs than to pay taxes.

That’s why drug dealing and petty crime are such popular occupations for Salafis in Europe. It’s preferable to steal from infidels than to participate in the great gamble of the European welfare state.

Mohammed isn’t staking his future on the shaky pensions of European socialism. He invests in what social scientists call social capital. He plans his retirement by having a dozen kids. If this lifestyle is subsidized by infidel social services, so much the better. And when social services collapse, those of his kids who aren’t in prison or in ISIS will be there to look after him in his golden years.

As retirement plans go, it’s older and better than the European model.

Mohammed doesn’t worry much about the future. Even if he doesn’t make it past six kids, by the time he’s ready to retire the European country he’s living in will probably be an Islamic State. And he is confident that whatever its arrangements are, they will be better and more just than the infidel system.

Sweden will take in 180,000 migrants this year. Germany may take in 1.5 million. Most of them will be young men following the Mohammed retirement plan.

Europeans are being assured that the Mohammeds will balance out the demographic disparity of an aging population with too many retirees and too few younger workers. But instead the Mohammeds will put even more pressure on the younger workers who not only have to subsidize their elders, but millions of Mohammeds, their multiple brides and their fourteen child Islamic retirement plans.

Retirement ages will go further up and social services for the elderly will be cut. The welfare state will collapse, but it will have to be kept running because the alternative will be major social unrest.

Among the triggers of the Arab Spring were rising wheat prices and cuts to food subsidies. Prices went up and governments fell as street riots turned into civil wars. Imagine a Sweden where 50 percent of the young male population is Muslim, mostly unemployed, turning into Syria when the economy collapses and the bill comes due. Imagine European Muslim street riots where the gangs have heavy artillery and each ghetto Caliph has his own Imams and Fatwas to back up his claims.

Europe is slowly killing itself in the name of European values. It’s trying to protect its economic setup by bankrupting it. European values have become a suicide pact. Its politicians deliver speeches explaining why European values require mass Muslim migration that make as little sense as a lunatic’s suicide note.

Islamic values are not compatible with European values. Not only free speech and religious freedom, but even the European welfare state is un-Islamic. Muslims have a high birth rate because their approach to the future is fundamentally different than the European one. Europeans have chosen to have few children and many government agencies to take care of them. Muslims choose to have many children and few government agencies. The European values so admired by American leftists have no future.

Europe is drinking rat poison to cure a cold. Instead of changing its values, it’s trying to maintain them by killing itself. The Mohammed retirement plan won’t save European Socialism. It will bury it.

It's quite simple, really. Did the British and Dutch settlers who were the founders of the American nation become Indians? Then why would the Muslims in Europe (or the Hispanics in America) become Europeans (or Americans?) Once you come in sufficient numbers that you can maintain your culture instead of having to adapt and assimilate into the existing culture, you don't. And then you're no longer an immigrant, you're an invader, and your success depends on the native culture's defeat.

Despite the cluelessness of our soi-dissant political elites—whether deliberate or not—the peoples of the West can see exactly what's going on, and are starting to react. And as more people react, more people are encouraged to follow them. It's not going to be very long before the Reconquista of Europe starts in earnest, with or without the approval of the current crop of quisling, traitorous leadership.

I'd love to leave a two thumbs up comment here, but I already have on the FrontPage version of this and I'm afraid that one would be rejected here. I've also posted that version on my Facebook page and broadcast the link wide and far. On Facebook Daniel's piece here has received many "likes."

"Mohammed doesn’t share European values. Nor are they likely to take hold of him no matter how often the aging teachers, who hope he gets a job and subsidizes their retirement, try to drill them into his head."

It's called the Magic Dirt Syndrome; thinking that importing immigrants to your country will magically take on the same values as those already there.

As we say about the liberal Jews here in the States; "any -ism except Judaism". They run to whatever tells them they're right to hate themselves.

Edward Cline said...

It is impossible for such a ideology to somehow, magically, evolve into a “humane culture.” Muslims are not going to “assimilate” or adopt the values – welfare state values or the values of independent minds and reason – because that would be surrendering to the “infidel.” Islam’s basic premise is death. A culture of Enlightenment is premised on life. And why must we be concerned with the survival of such an ideology? The ideology must be defeated and extinguished trunk, root, and branch. Merkel and her ilk are expecting these savages to “see reason.” Reason is their enemy, their nemesis. They’re not going to see reason. They will chop your head off first. They are as open to reason as are the flesh-eating zombies of The Walking Dead.

I remember in the eighties our (Dutch) lefties told us that we just had to wait a couple of decades and everything would be fine. Because the next generation(s) of muslims would become less and less focused on their own culture and religion. Only a right wing lunatic wouldn't understand. But now, it's clear to everyone that it has actually gotten WORSE.
Last june for example, 64 procent of Dutch Turks voted for Erdogan. More than anywhere else in the world.
You are right Daniel, this is not going to end well.

What I think will change everything is muslims starting their own political party/ parties all over Western Europe. Sooner or later this will happen.
And when this happens, I believe the left will have no other option than to end its love affair with islam. And then the division will be complete.

Your problem Mr. Greenfield is that you make sense and can draw logical conclusions by observing the actions of these so-called immigrants. Now, honestly, what do you expect me to do? Believe what my WASP eyes and ears see and hear or believe the melodious soothing words of the MSM and politicians assuring me that we really, really need these people here and we will benefit from them?

From somewhere on the net:

Walk down any street in Eurabia today and suddenly you will discover a terrible truth - Europe died in Auschwitz ...

Europeans killed six million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz they burned a culture, thought, creativity, and talent. They destroyed the chosen people, truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world.

The contribution of this people is felt in all areas of life: science, art, international trade, and above all, as the conscience of the world. These are the people that Europe burned.

And under the pretense of tolerance, and because Europe wanted to prove to themselves that they were cured of the disease of racism, they opened their gates to 20 million Muslims, who brought them stupidity and ignorance, religious extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and poverty, due to an unwillingness to work and support their families with pride.

They have blown up European trains and turned their beautiful cities into the third world, drowning in filth and crime.

Shut up in the apartments they receive free from the government, they plan the murder and destruction of their naive hosts.

And thus, in Eurabia’s misery, they have exchanged culture for fanatical hatred, creative skill for destructive skill, intelligence for backwardness and superstition.

Eurabia has exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and their talent for a better future for their children, their determined clinging to life because life is holy, for those who pursue death, for people consumed by the desire for death for themselves and others, for Europe’s children and theirs.

The stated intent, from way back, of the EU has been to destroy the nation state. Mass immigration from cultures alien to ours is a major tool in this. From a Brit's point of view, what is happening is good for us, with our referendum to come in 2017. Not that long ago, many more wanted to stay in, in the polls. It's now neck and neck, and the worse the migration crisis becomes (and I believe we haven't seen anything yet- not to mention the families to follow which will massively multiply the numbers of the invading army) the better for those of us who want out of the EU. So dear friends across the water, tell the Abominable Obamanoid to butt out and shut up.

I have a very good friend who moved to Munich several years ago. I asked him about his first-hand knowledge of events unfolding in Germany. Here is his response:

"It is truly scary stuff on a massive level.

Everyone I speak with or hear talking about the situation think that Merkel is insane and ruining Germany.

Thousands were put up at the main train station in Munich - waiting to be spread around Germany somehow ...

The German Police control the major highway into Germany from Austria to limit the amount of influx and cause massive delays ... you can avoid them by turning off the highway one or two exits before hand though...

I have seen dozens of the immigrants heading into the Alps towards Germany and have some groups on the train or walking along the train tracks.

There are container housing villages popping up all over Germany and kill the property value of the German neighbors. Rape and all sorts of crime going on as well.

Thankfully other eastern countries are finally opening their doors as well ... but most will want to come to Germany most likely because of the thriving economy and open arms etc.

The numbers are shocking and things are forever changing in ways unkown - and not for the good."

Thought it would be worthwhile to share.

It is quickly happening here in America as our leaders bring us the Somali. Here in Michigan our Gov. Snyder is lobbying for even more refugees to replace the blacks lost to Planned Parenthood in Detroit. Snyder also plans to put these muslims in our smallest and sweetest communities. I'm getting pretty old, I feel sorry for my children and grand children.

Didnt the Europeans as well as Americans really bring this on themselves by refusing to address intellectuals and social activists who attacked the family and promoted sexual liberation? The baby boomer women feel entitled to lie forever apparently.

Thank you for your courage to tell the truth about what is going on in Europe, the U.S. and around the world. There is no doubt in my mind that we are seeing the beginnings of full blown world war with Islam.

"Anonymous: From somewhere on the net."

Your anonymous commentator is paraphrasing from an article entitled "All European Life Died in Auschwitz", which was written by Spanish writer Sebastian Vilar Rodrigez and published in a Spanish newspaper on January 15, 2008.

The last sentence of the article is as follows: "What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe." I doubt that the writer could have seen then how true his words were and how soon they would come to fruition.

Borntoast said...

I wish you were wrong. Europe is making an unparalleled mistake of epic historical significance.

I wonder what the history books will say ( if we're allowed any apart from the quoran) when they cover this inglorious capitulation of civilisation to a dumbed down 7th century sect.

Moslems have never brought a country anything but tyranny and religious intolerance, brutal intimidation and coercion.
They loot, they thieve, they pillage, they leech the hosts wealth with no compunction for islam is here with it's " literally " god given right to destroy any form of culture or thought that is different and threatening to it...and that's ANYTHING civilized or intelligent or inquisitive and ANY open mindedness or talent.

Europe throughout history never found a decent way accepting it's Jews, through Germany it found a "solution" to what they considered the Jewish problem in murdering them. Without this holocaust however, where all of Europe stood by passively and watched or even actively participated the post war UN would have never voted in favor of a Jewish state, without the post war incomprehensible prospering of Germany it would have never been able to pay the repair-payments to the Jewish state which made it possible for Israel to absorb the millions of Jewish refugees from all over the world and built it's viable economy up and now Germany's and the rest of Europe's acceptance of unlimited muslim immigration shall lead to that continent's destruction in a final to that part of Jewish history. Is it so difficult to see this sequence as the hand of G'd acting?

As usual Mr Greenfield, you hit the mark. We are since long observing the onfolding phenomena related to this massive Muslim immigration in Europe, due to the "Push-policies" of the Islamic world, and the related "Pull-policies" of Germany and the EU in its wake. In which European values the newcomers are supposed to integrate seems indeed to us a sort of sick joke. Should they maybe integrate into values like gay marriage, disruption of traditional family, disruption of tradition and religion e.g., in short the onholy trinity of secularism, multiculturalism and relativism? Or in values such as individualism, respect of law and order, loyalty of the State to which they came to belong, and respect of its culture and history? Of course all this integration debate is just based on wishful thinking if not on lies. In reality the only acceptable integration for Muslims is into a Sharia-ruled society. Not really similar to societies based on democracy, freedom of opinion and male-female parity. This is an obvious fact to us, and a valid reason to call for a halt to this insane ongoing MENA-influx into Europe. But the Leftist vision differ. The Leftist politicians see immigration as a perfect chance to more disrupt traditional society, their values and economy. The result will be on short term more poverty, out of it more Leftist voters and because of that the Leftist Elite will increase its grip on power. That's why the Left is allied with Islam.

A famous Jewish comedy record of the 1960's has a young Jewish couple come to the wife's mother and proudly say "guess what, mom, we are going to Europe". The mother replies.."I was born wasn't so great!".
Europe's death wish is nothing new. Already in the late 19th century there was crazed militarism, mass enthusiams for the coming war; the culture, such as Richard Strauss' operas celebrated violence and promiscuity, all of this leading to the two Europeans "civil wars" (i.e. World Wars I and II). The Nazis viewed Germany as being in racial and cultural decline and felt that only genocide would "straighten them out". So what we are seeing today is simply a continuation of this death wish, just in a different form, with the Muslim tide being the instrument of their final self-annihilation.

van Lunteren said...

This is the big masterplan the EU has come up with yesterday:

It's as if they are worried that the influx of migrants might stagnate during winter time. The people who were kicking down borders and burning tents because they couldn't wait to get to Germany are supposed to stand in line now to registrate (for days? for weeks?).
The capacity numbers of the 'reception centres' are laughable when you realise 10,000 migrants crossing the German border in a day is sort of normal by now.

I still think that Germany will HAVE to close its borders at one point.
Then there will be a mess beyond believe.

In America, the Liberals have just about destroyed everything that made this nation work. But they are terrified of Muslims. They attack Catholics and Christians without ever mentioning that Muslims kill gay people and free thought and treat women like hell and live in their own garbage and probably would be living in tents now if it wasn't for the technology of the outside world.. No, they just go after the way of less resistance. They feel Muslims will never be a force here, but life in America is controlled by them right now. You have to watch everything you say and they are not allowing prayers in schools except for Muslims. We have a Muslim plant in the White House and he is stressed because he hasn't been able to disarm us. What the Muslims don't understand is that there are Americans in this country that should be chained to trees just to eat dinner without eating their own young. We have hundreds of millions of guns and what the Muslims see on the news is not what the country is all about. That's why Trump is so popular. Once the head Muslim is gone with his lackeys, if they try to attack us in a big movement, they will be eliminated. Check history. You can push the Crusaders so far and then they will destroy you. By the way, you can always tell a Liberal by asking them what their answer to Muslim Sharia Law is, and to name one positive thing Hillary Clinton has ever accomplished in all her years in government. You will never get an answer, and they will try to sidetrack you.

Rampant immigration is pushing many in Europe farther to the right.
Some see the large number of male immigrants as a Trojan horse rather than just immigrants.

RAM said...

This is too broad a generalization, I guess, but:

You can also trace Europe's cultural disintegration in the evolution of German/Austrian "serious" music over the last few centuries. Some time in the 1800's it began to lose contact with beauty, uplifted spirits, and a wholesome attitude. Y. Ben-David's reference above to Richard Strauss operas is only one illustration.

Anonymous said...

I'm not actually bothered anymore. A lot of bratty gay and feminist groups need to have their egos checked. They are very vocal at the moment. That will end when Sharia hits.

If they had a conservative outlook and believed in the family unit in terms of long term durability then we wouldn't be in this mess. They truly believed the lies that the mainstream media sold them. Magazines, pop-culture and television sitcoms have brainwashed them.

We have feminists advocating the extermination of men (yes really!) and advocating for virgin female only birthes (the worst type of inbreeding known).

It is pretty clear that both Obama and Putin welcome the mass influx of Muslims to Europe, although for different reasons. Obama is pleased with it because he views it as the Muslim payback for European colonialism in the Middle East. In his book "Dreams from my Father" he recollected how his Kenyan grandmother told him about the idyllic (?) life they had there in Africa before the white man came. The whites came, stole their land and exploited them. Thus, millions of Muslim coming to Europe and taking the welfare money is simply them getting back what Obama thinks the Europeans stole from them. That also explains why Obama refused to send either himself or a high-level representative to the large Paris demonstration protesting the Charlie Hebdo massacre. Obama viewed the massacre as an understandable payback for French and Israeli actions in the Middle East.
Putin benefits from the massive influx of refugees because it will serve to distance the old Warsaw Pact members of eastern Europe from their new EU partners, frightening them with internal upheavals against their relatively newfound freedoms. Putin is now hoping they will turn back to him in the east to protect them from bullying by the western European EU members who are hectoring them to take in the unwanted refugees.

Merkel wins prizes and awards with this pan europe concept, not only a diversity of peoples, but to make it a diversity in the individual.
So that agenda is there and being put in place, by Merkel and the EU leaders, as you can see by the interconnections of patrons,workshops, schools, activities, media and awards.
She may be a little peeved to have missed out on this years Nobel Prize.

Islime is a disease like cancer. It will consume its hosts in Europe and America UNLESS it is first eradicated down to the last cell. The question Europeans and Americans alike MUST answer is do we want to commit suicide so our descendants will live as slaves to mu-slime animals, or will we wake up and defeat the mu-slimes, starting with deporting them ALL from our countries? There are NO other options.
