“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” – George Santayana
I use this quote quite often, especially when talking about Islam. I feel like I’ve written a piece including it recently, in fact. Sadly for humanity, we seem to have painfully short memories, and a dangerous predisposition towards viewing the past through the lens of the present. So quothe Santayana (Or Churchill, depending on my mood) I shall. I don’t think the message has sunk in yet.
What’s that other quote? You know, the one about how doing the same thing and expecting different results was the definition of insanity?
Well, I can only conclude by recent events that Canada is suffering from a sort of mass psychosis, right from the prime minister on down.
Canada is currently in the beginning stages of Islamicization. And though all of my friends and family (I am Canadian) would scoff at me for this statement, I feel quite confident in my prediction that if we do not begin to have some painfully honest conversations and take some concrete steps to stop this Islam problem before it starts, we will be moving towards being the next Germany, Sweden, or France.
I don’t need to be able to see the future to make this statement, which is the most frightening part of all of this. It’s not so hard to know what’s coming when Muslims have been using the same playbook of political Jihad for the past 1,400 years. Remember when Hillary Clinton declared “When someone tells you who they are, believe them the first time.”?
Of course, this doesn’t apply to the left. To the left, Muslims can tell us over and over again that they want to kill anyone who isn’t Muslim, and yet we who will tell the truth about this are the ones targeted as “Islamophobic”.
The fact that Canadians are summarily dismissing a future I believe to be inevitable as not even possible is a frightening thought.
So let’s look at why the Islam problem is coming soon, to a Northern wonderland near you.
First, we have Islamists featured prominently in positions of power. Then, we have motions like M-103, which are the first step to actively criminalizing “Islamophobia”. Oh, and I also broke the story that the woman who championed M-103 used to be the president of a Muslim Student’s Association that went on to hand out books condoning wife beating and honour killing.
And more recently, we have a Toronto mosque which preached “death to Jews” – and then those protesting this same mosque were considered for hate crime charges. A Syrian refugee with six children who has been in the country since on 2015 was charged with molesting six girls in a mall swimming pool – and then the media questioned whether we should have shared his refugee status when reporting the story.
We also have fake “refugees” crossing the United States-Canada border being welcomed with open arms, despite their total lack of respect for our immigration laws or those waiting ahead of them.
These are only a few very recent examples. These stories are barely being touched in the Canadian mainstream media which is even less diverse in thought than the American mainstream media – including our government-owned media empire, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
While I do agree with many on the left that Muslims are not a big threat to the Canadian way of life today and that Canada is a relatively safe country, it is naive to think that if we continue to allow mass immigration and lack of assimilation we will not face the real threat of becoming islamacized.
This is about history, and about known trajectories coming to pass with time.
We don’t have to look to ancient history to fix this. We need to open our eyes to the past twenty years or so, to the suicidal immigration policies that have led to nations like Sweden and Germany being in such a state of disgrace.
It may be too late for them. They have let in so many refugees, with such high birth rates, that it is hard to say whether or not they will ever reclaim their culture for their people.
It’s not too late for Canada. Not by a long shot.
As a Canadian, I too have grown up with our values. Compassion. Empathy. Tolerance. These are not bad traits, but they cannot allow us to turn to political and religious suicide at the feet of Islam.
Islamicization starts off slowly, but once the ball is rolling, it does not slow down. If Canada continues what we are doing now, the Islamists will attack us ever more swiftly.
We need to fight back, today, even if our views are called extreme. Our lives, and more importantly, our children’s lives, depend on it.
