“Diversity is Our Strength.” Really? Are Japan and China weak and miserable because they are not diverse? The historical record would beg to differ. “Homogeneity is Their Strength”?
That aside, I have noted before (here and here, for example) that many if not most of the so-called Syrian refugees, the current progressive plat d’jour, are neither Syrian nor refugees. They are not particularly persecuted any more than anybody else unfortunate enough to live in a Muslim majority country. Let us not forget that the bulk of Islam’s victims consists of Muslims, the same ones who come to our countries to instill the same sort of barbaric Islamic regime and practices they supposedly “flee.” I tire of comparisons of these “refugees” with Anne Frank and the millions of other Jews who fell to the Nazis. Prior to and during WWII, we did not take in Nazi “refugees.” We did not take in the people vowing to destroy us. The US also didn’t take many Jewish refugees either because, if you remember, the Democrats held power, and the Democratic party is the historic repository of racism and anti-Semitism in American politics. The Nazis of today are the Muslims pouring into Europe. The Anne Franks of today are the Christian, Baha’i, and Yazidi minorities living in the hell created by Islam. That same Islam, by the way, long ago eliminated the Jews from the Muslim world. I also would note that Islam drove the Hindus, the Buddhists, and the Sikhs out of Pakistan, but we have no UN programs or refugee camps for them. We have no Hollywood celebrity calling for justice for them.
The progressives seek to destroy our culture, and replace it with…what exactly? The progs can’t or won’t say, but we can certainly get a glimpse of what’s to come if they succeed. Has “diversity” of the progressive kind made Europe a stronger and a better place to live? I think that hundreds of victims of Islam in Paris, Nice, Brussels, London, etc., might have an interesting answer to that. I note that thanks to the strength derived from diversity, Swedish police now advise Swedish women not to go out alone after dark and to dress modestly so as not offend the “refugees” who might just have to rape and murder these women for cultural reasons. If “diversity” is so good, why not encourage it in the Muslim world? Let’s build churches in Mecca! How about that? Why not more diversity in Nigeria? Perhaps Mexico should diversify its demographics by taking in hundreds of thousands of “refugees” from the Middle East and Africa, and not funneling them northward? The same progs who worry about cultural contamination by missionaries of an isolated tribe in the Amazonian forest have no problem turning vast swathes of our cities into “no go” zones ruled by the practitioners of Sharia and the other blessings of the Religion of Peace.
The unholy alliance between Progressivists and Islam would seem to be utterly baffling and inexplicable, until you realize one thing: they hate America far, far more than they’ll ever love anything. It’s their first principle, their Prime Directive. Think of it as a particularly grotesque demonstration of the old saw “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” and it begins to make sense.
Well, for certain definitions of “sense.”
