#1 You think they don't know this? Of course they know this. The whole point of Critical Theory is to break down and destroy Western culture and replace it with Marxism. They know exactly how evil they're being.

#3 I suspect most of the so-called Marxist blacks to be dallying with islam, closet sunnis harboring as much a hatred for christians and jews as for their host country. Yes, I say host country. Because in hating it and identifying with shitholes they have made their choice.

#4 The left believes in lowest common denominators. The left believes that all POCs deserve to be as atavistic as the worst of them, no consequences. Of course, atavism has its own built-in consequences, but the left ignores that.

Grom, in winter of 2016 we had to infiltrate an event planned by commies in the state of Gujarat, India. We were expecting academicians and rich elites conspiring with student unions to subvert government policies, helping them procure weapons and all. We were supposed to find deeply indoctrinated supporters of militancy, committed comrades with Che t-shirts and fist waving bob cut dykes etc. Sure they all talked the talk very well.

But behind the podium from whence the speech was being given, were three framed photographs. Two of some local champions whom my predecessors had sent to hell. The one in the middle, was of poor Groucho Marx.

Only as part of the costume and to get the jihadi class to advance Marxist goals, Dron, the same way your Sikhs are willing tools of jihadi Pakistan — they would never be so gullible as to actually believe in a god or clerisy they didn’t completely control. But conquering and erasing history, that they’re fine with.

#7 Don't underestimate the power of islam to fully proselytize the sociopathic beast, TW. The sikhs too are no match for the moslems. Most of them know it.

The globalists too make the error of believing that they'll reign in islam when the time comes. But when the islam gets in into the individual, the family, the game is out of everyone's hands.

It comes with its own insidiously subtil potpourri of cultural nuances - arts, music, love and sex, spices and festivities and goodwill with the name of Allah strewn about 50 times a day. It is a way of life that takes the wild animal, the simple minded buffoon, the half-intellect subhuman; and imparts to it the dignity and self worth it craves. It brings the reject into the fold and gives him/her purpose. It only asks undying fealty and slowly replaces all other ideologies, deities, plans and ambitions with the ever loving Allah. And leaves a twofold child of hell for the mullahs to control.

#8 Marx, Mao, even the devil had nothing over on islam. It is a curse, born out of the neglect of lofty human civilization and the indifference of societies which damned themselves to sharing a world with it forever. Our chief error was that we underestimated it. Both islam and leftists see each other as tools, but the civilizational integrity, strength of purpose and martial dominance is always on islam's side.

The antifas and BLMs are nothing. A real police force, unfettered by progressive liberal jurisprudence could wipe them out in an eyeblink. Mayhap you'll elect a wiser, stronger man and negotiate through them and come out on top next time. But I worry about some Minnesota based Khalifa's fighters wreaking havoc with BLMs as facilitators in the middle of blue cities, with already emasculated constabularies. [And therein lies an idea, for the smart buggers in deepState, whoso needs moral sanction to nip the BLMs if ever.]

#10 It was a series, Wren. It was okay, just the usual naiveté that Indian audiences can be expected to digest as high suspense. Amusingly, the woke makers attempted to depict class warrior student leaders, moslems and commies as innocent siblings in the great revolution against corruption and fascism. But they ended up reinforcing the image of the moslem, the student activist and every random 'comrade' as the ingrate criminal bastitches they are; susceptible just as much corruption and hypocrisy as the Indian political class.

#16 The educators of the Indian citizen, the political class and media are seriously the most mentally ill equipped idiots. There is only one jihad, it is the struggle against the kafir and what is [ironically] called jahilya. What people are calling 'love jihad' is just fraud and seduction which has always happened in a society that chooses to keep its women undereducated and at the mercy of men.

The moslem sees a woman as nothing more than a beast, a thing of lust and naive tenderness to be captured and used. Other cultures see the woman as half of humanity. They do not. The moslem believes in social conquest, the gradual takeover of kafir communities by any means possible.

Grooming, seduction and marriage is one such means. To the moslem, he is doing you a favour by rescuing you from the pansy hindu/christian/jain whatever thingy you are born in. Once the girls find out it is difficult to get out. Thanks to useless constitutions and judiciaries in India, the woman is not given much liberty to plan her life anyway. A divorce needs a year long litigation, magistrates need convincing, police complaints need be filed... meanwhile the woman experiences islam as it truly is, not always making it out alive.

What non-moslems must understand is, the moslem has true historic momentum behind his culture, because unlike for other societies, the renaissance, the reformation, colonization, the IR, the wars... the islam train was never slowed down or diminished by anything. It plowed on in its ultra-simple monotheistic message and militant dogma. In fact it gained velocity as the other religions and paradigms of social organization proved increasingly debatable to a rapidly progressing world. Today, the christian boy, the hindu boy, the sikh or jain youth brings not much to a love affair. The handsome kafir killer brings a healthy bod [does not drink or smoke], a rebel image and a fearless [does not fear jail or public shame] attitude, a confidence the mamma's boy next door will not have. Naturally, you're swept off your feet, especially if all you've seen are hypocrites and misogynists in your family playing 'man of the house'. It's no wonder that almost all big stars [deities to the people] are moslems. Bollywood controls much of our fake national sentiment, and moslems control bollywood.

They control the very imagining of romance, for the average Indian. Let that sink in.

It's a complicated problem, but the solution to it, like every solution, lies within ourselves. If we raise only faggots posing as men, we cannot complain when our daughters fawn over the honey tongued Abduls.

Or even as the Mother of God. To be worshipped and declared Blessed, the source of all life and holiness.

To be praised with our most beautiful songs and rendered with the most beautiful images by the greatest artists our civilization has produced.

#32 ^ yes. Here's the great art historian Sir Kenneth Clark on the Female Principle in religion and art:

"The stabilising, comprehensive religions of the world, the religions which penetrate to every part of a man's being (Egypt, india or china) gave the female principle of creation at least a smuch importance as the male, and wouldn't have taken seriously a philosophy that failed to include both.

"These were all what HG Wells called communities of obedience. The aggressive, nomadic societies- communities of will (israel, islam, the protestant north) saw their gods as male. It's a curious fact that the all-male religions have produced no religious imagery- in most cases have forbidden it."

#33  #32 Actually Islam does produce some religious imagery. Depiction of living things is forbidden of course, but writing Quranic text isn't. So the sculptors and painters of yore found a loophole of sorts.

They twisted the letters of the scripts used in Arabic/Turkish/Persian in a way that it would look like a living thing. Sort of like a new font. Technically they could claim to have only written Quranic verses, so they wouldn't be penalized by the clerics.

But I do see your point. The nutjobs at Taliban as well as Daesh clearly don't even excuse even the loophole versions, which essentially sums up Islam.

#34 But there's some debate among the scholars about the depiction of living things being un-Islamic or not. Some maintain that it isn't forbidden as long as one isn't creating a painting of the deity or the messenger. Others differ.

#35 I would argue that the purpose of faith was not to produce fancy imagery and employ artisans, but to make a better class of human. Faith that tangentially goes the organized religion way often produces an industry of imagery, doctrine and soon... ideology that superimposes the wishful thinking of man on the possibility of his maker. As an Indian I can vouch for most of our modern religion being only skin deep, superficial; only dressed in beautiful arcana from the past. It takes years of wasting your life to understand that these artistic forms of the numinous only glorify inactivity and submission. While the jihad is in character with the very nature of base man, survival against odds, conquest of all he surveys, and dominion.

This is why the systems that were practical for purposes of empire building or social structuring for conquest flourished, and societies that gazed at images in smoke with reverence are today chasing their right to coexist with barbarians who don't give a shit.

And in all this noise, the voice of God is long forgotten.

#39  Is there no way to delete your own comment?

A power granted only to the moderators by our beloved site owner, the man who wrote Rantburg’s code, Fred Pruitt. That is why he, in his wisdom, gave us a Preview button as well as Submit for our comments, Mr. Rhinemann, so we could review a post before displaying typos and poor sense for all to see. ;-)

We moderators also can cover over the text of a comment, for those who transgress Rantburg’s few rules or are clearly drunk, but have not transgressed far enough to need erasing.

But in this case, I interpret Elmereng Jease8364 statement in #29 about the Mother cult as a reference to Catholicism — the Islamic view is that the Mary cult is straightforward idolatry, and a substantial number of Muslim thought leaders value females primarily for the womb jihad, expecting them to push out large numbers of future jihadis and producers of more jihadis.

Rather than the visual and plastic arts, Jews put their artistic energy into the poetry of prayers and psalms, and their intellectual energy into understanding the world and human nature well enough to figure out how best to live within God’s laws in the world and society as it is.

There is plenty of representational art in the Muslim world — all those rugs except the Afghan war ones being stylized gardens, not to mention the gorgeous tile work and carvings all over the buildings.

I would argue that the purpose of faith was not to produce fancy imagery and employ artisans, but to make a better class of human.

I agree. Religious imagery is primarily a tool for a stable illiterate society. The Jews didn’t need it, having early prioritized general literacy, while the Muslims relied on rote memorization and smashing all visible signs of preexisting beliefs other than their own to solidify their conquest — and periodically Muslim rebels and raiders arose from within (or nearby) to smash the decadencies of the reigning Muslim fatcats and the impure infidels they’d allowed a more or less precarious existence in their midst.

#41 Common error. Catholics do not worship Mary, they venerate her. There is a difference, she is not a diety - she is asked to pray for us, to offer up a prayer to God, same as you would ask your neighbor to pray for you if you were both believers. The theory is she the Theotokos, the God-bearer, and therefore would know better than any other mortal human how to talk to Him.

A lot of the cult-like behavior is from superstitious people who are in fact committing idolatry if they think the statue of Mary on their mantle is redemptive instead of their faith and works and grace of God. It is a common error in the poorly Catechiszed

Yes, indeed. My statement is the poorer for having missed that difference between purpose and result.

I have seen as I am sure you have commenters from time gradually get drunk through out the day while commenting.

I’ve been known to dance on tables stone cold sober, so don’t generally realize when those around me are under the influence. The only one I’m sure about on that score is drunken-voice-to-text-guy — the rest of you I assume are completely in your right mind.
