Talking of corpses...

One of the EU members is already on it's path to national suicide. According to "Daily Mail", multiculturalist ideology is to encompass the entire school curriculum in the UK, in the best traditions of communism. Shakespeare? Lord Byron? These guys are soooooo Middle ages, Monica Ali is the order of the day!

Back when I was in high school I had English as a subject and one of the first lessons was about England itself and it said that the name England derivated from "Angle-land", land of the Angles. If this curriculum passes soon that lesson will be completely obsolete.

Just say NO!

As expected UN envoy Ahtisaari proposed, no matter how hard he has been trying to sugar-coat it with euphemisms, that the West simply takes away Kosov and Metohija from Serbia. Since by now US and the EU have all but given up on talking the russians into not vetoing the eventual UN resolution on Kosovo indipendence they will now try to bribe and coerce whichever Serbian governement to cede it's historical heartland.

The only possible answer from the Serb people should be a firm resounding NO! No to surrendering it's historic lands, no to dismembering of it's country and! And there is nothing, as far as this writer is concerned, that the US or the EU can offer in return or intimidate with to make us change our mind!

Realisitcally, what can they do? Block the way towardsthe so-called European integrations? We had several EU officials saying lately that for the time being all expansion is frozen and that the Union has yet to cope with the latest members. And why would Serbia want to join an organisation bent on taking away it's teritory? On the contrary, it is Serbia who should break off all negotiations with such people. (plus, personally, I believe we are better of without the EUSSR) Economic sanctions? With so many investments from the EU countries it is debatable who has more to loose. Plus wherever some countries might step out others will eagerly step in. Military intervention? Hardly unlikely if not impossible, this is not 1999, to much has hapenned.

So there is basically nothing to fear from flatly refusing any kind of plan that forsees severing Kosovo and Metohija from Serbia. The West will grumble and scream and go into a state of semi-hysteria but in the end they will still have an unsolved Balkan situation and obsolete recipes of solving them. They will be forced to think of something new that includes a change of direction, and fast. If they however insist on clinging onto the Rastenburg-1944 syndrome(*) all Seriba has to do is sit in the banks of the river and wait for the corpses of it's enemies pass by, sooner rather then later.

(*) Rastenburg-1944 syndrome is my own term for describing the state of mind in which the Western globalist and multiculturalist establishment is in now. It manifests in detachment from reality, living in it's own universe where everything is rosy and vehement efforts to convince it's surroudings and the general public that their perception is the correct one.

What will imam al-Blair say about this?

One of British PM's aides has spoken against all-muslim schools and demands they be replaced with more ethnically and religiously diverse ones(at least he sees the so-called diversity as a two-way street).

What I want to know is: how does this add up to Tony Blair's recent claims that Quran is "inclusive" and "progressive"? And what consequences will Sir Cyrill bear for contradicting his boss?

Up for the Cups!

Been watching the Carling Cup semis these past two evenings and one thing caught my attention: the crowds.

Even though one semifinal featured a League Two club and in the other it was all but known that one of the teams(Arsenal) will feature youngsters and reserves and in spite of all demeaning comments about the Carling cup such as "worthless cup" and "Mickey Mouse plastic trophy" the ties featured capacity crowds that made noise incomparable to any game in the Premiership. It has nothing to do with the fact that this was Wycombe's 15 minutes or that Gunners-Spurs is always a derby no matter who's playing. I remeber a League Cup semifinal from 3 years ago between Man United and Blackburn in front of a packed Old Trafford with both sets of fans singing their hearts out. The story with the FA cup is similar, just wait for Forest vs. Chelsea.

So what is it with the cups? Why do they generate such emotions? Call me sentimental, but I believe they are a link to football's seemingly lost essence: that it's a game for everyone. The league games are mostly occupied by season-ticket holders and since those cost a small fortune these days, it is likely that their holders are simply too stiff and snobby to join in a sing-along about the team or the players. And since the cup games are an all-ticket affair not only are they more affordable to an average fan but are also less likely to attract the season-ticket types, most of whom think it is beneath them to cue up like everybody else for that valuable piece of paper. Therefore, us plebeians were allowed to keep at least a piece of our ideals about the beautiful game intact, albiet unintentionally.

Henry Ford democrats or the essence of democratist folly

Neil Clark has written a very interesting piece in the Gruniad about international reaction to the elections in Serbia. It is a worthwhile and lightly amusing column that exposes what at first glance is blatant hipocricy and inconsistency of the Western establishment.

It is, however, much deeper then simple arrogance that is at play here. The attitudes of western elites towards "undesireable" results of some elections are best proof of the essential folly of "democratist" ideology advocated pricipally by neoconservatives in the USA and a good deal of liberals. They completely ignore the differences among human beings that derivate from them belonging to a certain culture with it's value and belief system that is not necessarily the same as their own. Ideology not dealing with such factors or facts firmly rooted in reality is simply utopian and pursuing it regardless is at best dangerous and at worst insane. That is why the indignation at peoples not electing those favoured by the western elites, although comical in certain aspects, is not amusing at all.

Much ado about nothing

Those are elections in Serbia in a nutshell. Radical party is no closer to power then was before, Democratic party has surged to second place, with the prime minister Koštunica's Democratic party of Serbia(if this sounds like something coming right out of "Life of Brian", you are not mistaken. Take it from a Serb) and allied parties slipping to third, while the new Liberal democratic party, the darling of the US and european liberal globalist establishment, has managed do claw their way towards 5%.

The most likely outcome is that the so-called "democratic governement" will be formed, but the details are anybody's guess. Will Koštunica insist on being prime minister? What ministries will each party hold? What will be the new governements policy on Kosovo? Will they insist, as they should, on preserving it as a part of Serbia, albeit fromally for the time being? (An interesting footnote of these elections is that Koštunica's coalition won in Kosovo and Metohija) Will the negotiations with the EU continue and under what terms?

And what if Koštunica defies all predictions and forms a coalition with the Radical party? Anything is posible in politics, you know...

One would think that at least he would know

How many times have we seen this: a performer makes his name on basis of his ethnicity and once he reaches fame forgets where he comes from? Add Jerry Seinfeld to a long list of such snobs. Did this guy even look at the calendar? I mean, even if you don't have Jewish origins the fact that a person is named Tamar Cohen is not answering your phone-calls on Saturday should give you some sort of clue! Is he an idiot?

The last was not a rhetorical question. Seinfeld is not an idiot, you don't become successful in the entertainment industry by being one. Something much more serious is at play here. It is the fact that the modern-day celebrities got so used to the God-like treatment they are being given by the media, that they all of a sudden think they have become gods. Thus, to them it is unthinkable that a person should have his principles and customs that transcede the celebritie's needs which are to be served immediately, no matter what. In time, the superiority complex grows so high it cuts one off his origins completely. Hence, Sienfeld's behaviour in this incident should not be too unusual because he himself is Jewish.

Columbus? Veterans? Who needs them?

Want to see people trying to send their own country into oblivion? Look no further then New Jersey. State legislators removed the obligation for public schools to mark, among others, Colombus Day and Veterans Day. Needless to say, a large part of the kids will remain forever ignorant of Christopher Columbus and of the wars their country fought in(whether the wars were justified or not is not the point here and would demand a discussion for itself). And once this has passed it is only a matter of time before Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, Lincoln, FDR et al. come to their turn. Thus the state of New Jersey will have educated a perfect generation's of lowlives.

It is no coincidence that history is the most despised and most derided scinece by liberal globalists. It was George Orwell who said 60 years ago:"He who controls the present controls the past. He who controls the past controls the future." History and it's most remarkable events is what makes a nation, it's mentality, it's collective consciousness. From it a people gains it's pride and learns on mistakes made. If someone violates history and ignores and denigrates a nation's events and achievememts it inevitably leads to a loss of direction and purpose not only to collective as a whole but to individual members as well because a man is a social being.

It is up to patriotic organizations whether from the left or the right to block such attempts by liberal globalists by any means necessary. Otherwise there soon might not be nations for any of them to defend.

Thou shall not express politically incorrect opinions or else...

A prominent ballet dancer has been exposed as a member of a political organization demmed "undesireable" by the ruling establishment. The press organs are calling for her to be dismissed and banished and angry mobs outside her place are threatening here. When and where is this happening? Stalin's USSR? Hitler's Germany? No, present day Britain.

The victim of this witch hunt is the primaballerina of the English National Ballet Simone Clarke. Britain's prime multiculturalist paper "Gruniad" infiltrated one of his paper in the British National Party, a political organization deemed "racist" and "extremist" by the mainstream media. In course of his infiltration the reporter got hold of the party's membership list in London and the paper duly published it, thus violating just about every journalistic code concerning privacy.

From then on it was a barrage of media fire lead by the usual suspects in the "Gruniad" calling for the ENB to sack the hapless dancer for not cow-towing to the official party line. The quality of her performances is simply not an issue nor is her standing with the co-workers. She's not politically correct, end of story!

Ms.Clarke's attitude under such flak is indeed admirable. In a situation where many a man would fold and bend over backwards to apologise to evereybody and his dog, she said it will be a problem for her from now on but that she has absolutely no regrets about joining the BNP nor does she intend to quit her job. And, thankfully, the ENB has no intentions of dismissing her (for now).

One thing is interesting in this whole affair. When asked why she kept her membership a secret Clarke replied that it is because many people are offended by other's political beliefs. I suppose that's one way of putting it, but I believe that Clarke, at least subconsciously, knew that she would be in for this treatment. And that is indeed scary.

Protection? Solidarity? Not from the EU!

Bulgaria and Romania have become the full members of the European Union on January 1st. As one of their first actions, Bulgarian memebers of the European Parliament proposed that the European comission intervenes on behalf of the Bulgarian nurses sentenced to death in Lybia. They recieved quite an unpleaseant surprise. Apparently, their new friends are not eager to help them. They are much more concerned with doing business with the Lybian governement then with lives of it's new citizens, or as they so eloquently put it:

"Trying to force the [Benghazi] issue would have the sole effect of destroying rather than strengthening Euro-Mediterranean relations."

In other words, the Bulgarian medical workers were told to drop dead. Literally. I hope Bulgarian citizens finally realize what they signed up on.

The basis of multiculturalism goes much further back

It is common wisdom that the ideology of multiculturalism was invented after WWII in the USA and exported from there to Europe. Norwegian blogger Fjordman over at the "Gates of Vienna" is of a somewhat different opinion. According to him, elements of such ideology can be traced in the works of marxist theoreticians like Antonio Gramsci and Georg Lukács.

However, cultural relativism, as basis for multiculturalism is far older then that and Fjordman has been able to find traces of that even in the works of Voltaire and Edward Gibbon. In an uncanny resemblance to modern-day multiculturalists Voltaire even sings praises to Islam and debases Judaism and Christianity.

It would be interesting to know whether Voltaire and Gibbon ever read the Koran and the Hadith. Nonetheless, these two were restricted in terms of information flow and travel means of their time. What's the excuse of contemporary multiculturalists?

Surge in troops...and what else?

President Bush has outlined his new strategy for Iraq. It remains to be seen whether it is to be succesful. In my opinion, it will not change the situation much because these measures are treating the symptoms not the root cause.

The divisions within Iraq have been present for centuries and they won't go away all of a sudden because Bush has decided to send in the cavalry. Saddam Hussein has been able to reign in the tensions(trough methods we are all aware of) but the clumsy and inappropriate way of getting rid of him now threatens to have the whole region boiling over. Also, American planners have seriously misestimated the attitude of the people in Iraq towards ideas such as democracy, universal human rights and freedom and could not comprehend that there are people in the world who value something else. The worst part is that they can not bring themsleves to admitting that they were wrong and are thus unable to present any kind of idea except throwing in more money and troops.

One thing is significant, however. Bush has turned down any proposal of bringing Iran in. On the contrary, he has claimed that "US is effectively at war with Iran". And American troops are starting to act accordingly! Let's hope this does not lead to surges other then those of troops.

When even thieves had patriotism

As WWII records get uncovered one by one we see ever more interesting episodes that give away not only facts but also the state of mind of the people in that era. The latest bit is about a professional thief who offered to blow up Hitler.

This man, rather then thanking the occupying power for releasing him from jail in which the authorities of his country put him, put himself at the disposal of his homeland as soon as he was able to, offering even the ultimate sacrifice.

Compare this to the attitudes of today. Not only criminals, but many so-called distinguished citizens would sell themselves to anybody just to keep their precious posessions and stature. I did not know whether to admire the man in the article or to be depressed at the state of mind of today's world.
