Those Evil Crusaders?

~ SO EXACTLY WHY do we now look at the Crusades as “a Very Bad Thing”? British scholar Steven Runciman is part of the answer. He pioneered the “profiteering, landless younger son rape-a-thon” theory of the Crusades. After all, Everybody Knows That, right?

Just The Facts

If you look at actual history, in many cases kings and leading nobles actually went into deep debt to fund the various crusades, including one Spanish king who literally mortgaged his country to pay the incredible costs involved. Until Runciman and others started re-writing history, the Muslims happily knew what history told them– the Crusades failed. Now, crusaders are depicted as the prototypical colonial invaders, opposing Islam and Allah’s will, invading peaceful Muslim lands.

They Punched Back! Wah!

General Saladin Would Like ALL The Things

General Saladin Would Like ALL The Things

The Crusades were a response to (a) Muslim violence against Christians and Christian pilgrims to the Holy land, (b) the near total destruction of the church & tomb of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem  by a Muslim leader, and (c) a cry for help from a Byzantine Emperor, since it was primarily Byzantium that had lost land and been ceaselessly fighting Islam for 400 and more years to that point.

That Jihad– with a very few pauses– has continued for 1400 years, and to the estimated tune of 270 MILLION deaths.

Re-writing all these awkward facts for 2014, of course, ties in nicely with cultural Marxism, the vilification of Christianity, and the re-writing of history in ideological terms. This is why ignorance of history in schools and universities is literally killing us.

To The Rescue

Thankfully, scholars like Thomas F. Madden and Rodney Stark are pulling the Crusades out of the memory hole, and remembering the whole story, because it is crucial for us to remember and know the roots of the Islamism now occupying so much of our time and money and politics. The Crusades are still with us, and can serve as an example of what to do, and what not to do, and the seriousness of Jihad then and now.

As bad as the Crusades could sometimes be, they shine in comparison to the rape, theft, enslavement and beheadings of Jihad, and were an attempt to defend Christian lands, holy sites, and lands then recently conquered by the moon-god blood cult of Mohammedanism.

~ TODAY’S LESSON– The classical Muslim theory of ownership is fairly simple. There are 4 rules:

  1. If it was ever ours, it’s still ours.
  2. If it is ours, it’s totally ours (and should be);
  3. If we mark it as ours, it’s ours.
  4. Everything should be ours, God said so.

It’s a dog-like theory of ‘mine’, but they claim that God agrees, so it’s pretty important to understand what and how they think about such matters: we own all the things. It’s all about the dominance.

Bringing The Naïve

Hence, the witless sitting ducks of the Anglican/ Episcopal Entity are letting some Imams pray in the National Cathedral (kind of a Generic American Prayer Barn for state funerals and stuff, but also an Episcopal Church) in Washington DC. No big, you say, Jews & other kinds of Christians have prayed there. Yes, but.

Islam is a territorial conquest/ dominance cult. Once it’s been prayed in (see rule #3) , they think it’s theirs. For eternity. Like the Hagia Sophia in Constantinople? Even if somehow the Christian world got it back as a working cathedral, we’d only be borrowing it, according to Islam.

image013

Islam, AD732.. Note Spain & France, The Byzantines lost 1/2 their Empire.

So, from this day foward, when Muslim Friday Prayers bray forth mocking Christians and the Trinity and Jesus, the National Cathedral is a mosque, and belongs to Islam (see Rule #3). They will claim it officially, if they can, just like they are trying to ‘get back’ the former mosque in Cordoba, from back before the 1400s when most of Spain was theirs– and it still is, according to Muslim law & custom along with most of Spain– (see Rule #1).

Mine, Allah Mine!

ottoman-empire-1580

Islam, AD1580, Once Byzantium Fell

Technically, an aggressive Turkey owns all that the Safavid/ Ottoman Empire used to dominate, including Israel, the Balkans, most of the Middle East, parts of Southern France, Russia, Ukraine, Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, and Austria; also most of Spain, and including bits of Italy, most of the Mediterranean, all of North Africa (see Rule # 3, and Rule #4)…..

I cannot go back to Scotland, Moldova, England, or Eastern Germany and claim land and rights just because some of my ancestors lived there once. If I were Muslim, that’s exactly what I could do; and every place with a mosque is also a territorial outpost and claim on that land and area in the name of Allah, and the Dar Al-Islam (lands or house of Islam). Think: opportunistic infection; or, The Borg, from Star Trek.

Clue In, Fools

A Jolly Nice Place For Tea!

Remember: there is no secular law, international law, human rights law, or non-Islamic law for authentic Islam– such laws are evil, or irrelevant. That’s Islam 101, which most Western Christian clergy have not learned. The wiffle-brained folks in DC having the Imams over for tea think it’s a jolly nice thing showing brotherhood, dialogue, caring & sharing, cuddly-wuddly whatnot.

Guess Who’s Coming For Tea

Awwww.. cuddles!.. they came for tea! (and claimed the place forever). Who’s coming over for tea, exactly?

The Islamists expected at the cathedral include representatives from theIslamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). In 2009, both groups were confirmed as co-conspirators in a conspiracy to deliver funds to the Gaza-based Hamas jihad group, which regularly launches attacks to kill Jews in Israel.

How nice. What an insulting smack in the face to Christians, and Anglicans, in parts of the world who are dying and being persecuted by Islam.

They Want What-Now?

That’s only if you stick to the surface, and stupidly or arrogantly assume that all people think alike, and that what Islam has been doing to the world for 1400 years, at the cost of 270 000 000 deaths is all about caring and sharing. Remember: they actually believe that world is theirs, and if we will not surrender & convert, then we will be plundered, either beheaded or enslaved (2014: like the Yazidis & Christian Iraqis and Syrians), or made pay the special punishment tax and various humiliations as 4th class citizens, (2014: like the Egyptian Copts).  Ask yourself: how many church buildings are there in Saudi Arabia? Zero.

Keepsies!

AmericaisthegreatSatan

This is territorial, symbolic and religious claim to the largest religious building in the heart of The Great Satan, America (Israel being “The Little Satan”). Imagine a group of Pentecostals (somehow) allowed to pray in Mecca, and “claiming” the Ka’aba Mosque for Jesus.

Our own ignorance, good intentions, fear, desire to placate, and multicultural arrogance is the greatest part of the problem with invasive aggressive Muslim Brotherhood & Hamas Islam (fronted across America by activist-style groups like CAIR, ISNA, and the other alphabet soup of cover-names and double-faces).

Be Vigilant, Learn Up

Says Andrew Bieszad over at One Peter 5,

“My advice to fellow Catholics is twofold: First, do all in your power to prevent your local church from being used for Muslim prayers, because it is about domination, not dialogue. Second, prepare spiritually, mentally, and yes, even physically to combat an increasingly aggressive Islam. While this may be a “historic event,” seen only for its spiritual significance, it may well be the hallmark of much more.”

They Muslims are at war, stealth & otherwise; they are deadly serious, and they know we are mostly clueless. THIS– this is what happens to people who ignore or mis-learn (or dreamily wish otherwise) than the actual lessons of history. ~

~ THE INTERTUBES have been with us since the mid-90s, and now– for many Westerners, it’s hard to imagine life without it.

Still, many otherwise decent and clever people on FaceBook and blogs and websites make the classic mistake of forgetting what the internet, at bottom, really IS.

Links.

That’s it. Linking from one page or portal to other sources of information, news, kitty pictures, or why Peter Jackson and George RR Martin are in a dead heat for exploitative money-making. Whatevs.

So, if you mention on your blog-post or FaceBook that old Great-Uncle so-an-so served in such and such a unit, in the battle of whozits, it behooves you to, say, link to his unit or service record, a YouTube video about the battle, a picture of a piece of schrapnel from the great-avuncular arse which he passed on to you, a link to a museum where you donated said bit of arse-schrapnel, so all might enjoy it, and so on.

~ ITEM: Amazon: The Wal-Mart of the Internet

~ ITEM: Why Amazon Went Big Brother

~ SURE, IT’S handier & fast. But Kindle or other formats of e-book have some real and inherent problems.

In the world of books, Amazon and Google are both bossy giga-giants. A little while back, my Kindle for PC (I have about 80 books on it, most of them free or on sale) would not let me read something I was currently half-way through, without that I re-downloaded it again. You know, because bullies like to rub people’s noses in it, and tell people what to do.

Think that’s bad? It gets much worse:

In July 2009, The New York Times reported that amazon.com deleted all customer copies of certain books published in violation of US copyright laws by MobileReference, including the books Nineteen Eighty-Four and Animal Farm from users’ Kindles. This action was taken with neither prior notification nor specific permission of individual users. Customers did receive a refund of the purchase price and, later, an offer of an Amazon gift certificate or a check for $30. 

Removed. Without permission or notification. Just– gone. A brave new world of books: beyond ironic that it was Orwell’s books in this case.

tablet-big-brother

UnKindled

I was underwhelmed. So much for the ‘bold new age’ of freedom which the web and related book-technology were supposed to bring us. Even more, I’m concluding that books as a teaching/ entertaining technology are well suited to how humans need to pay attention to things– without the million-and-one distractions of a computer or hand-held, as if we were all in the midst of a circus, and not trying to attend to our reading.

Now, I understand that the authors and publishers ‘own’ the words, but still, I’ve yet to see any author, publisher, or store do this to a physical book in my home, or at the local liberry. Books are a more permanent, less tamperable record of whatever an author was on about.

Barring literal physical destruction, or the accidents of history, books abide. That’s a blessing.

DisappearingProse

Ether In The Wind

Digital books are inherently less permanent, no matter e-clouds and suchlike, which all presume your e-reader or computer is available & working, has power, that the internets are working, and that some intellectual tyrant hasn’t decided to delete or “good-think” e-books on currently unpopular topics. FaceBook regularly blocks and deletes things which their drones disapprove of, or someone complains about. Why not the same treatment applied to books?

Not feminist enough? Not sufficiently fawning towards a regime? Not pro-homosexual enough? Too old fashioned, or religious, or complicated, or rabble-rousing, or…. you get the idea. Of course, burning books just looks bad.. now, with a few clicks, the ever-changing notions of the moment will be found in all books permitted to exist– yet no longer allowed to say what their authors meant them to say. Never mind the capacity of Amazon to report your reading habits to the authorities. ‘Just trust us’ is the mantra of tyrants.

Kindle? Nah. I’m going back to buying serious books I wish to own in the dead-tree format, where the words won’t blow away, and where I don’t have to ask nicely for some giant company to let me read something I already paid for.

And no, I won’t be buying via Amazon.com.

Kill, Christians, Kill!

ncis-cbs

~ ITEM: NCIS (TV series); Full episode guide Season 7

~ ITEM: Honor killing

~ WHEN IT BEGAN in 2003, NCIS (under the care of Donald P. Bellisario) was pretty clear about Jihad. It spoke truly, and noted that most terrorism in the modern era can be traced to militant Islam.

By 2009,it looks very much as if someone at CBS got to the writers. In an episode originally aired 10 days before Christmas (Dec 15, 2009, ‘Faith’), we get the basic heavy-handed apologetic for just how awesome and awesomer Islam is.

You know, because by the end of the episode, it’s the Christian brother of a slain convert from Christianity who turns out to have murdered him– wait for it– for family ‘honour’… because honour killing is a totally Christian activity. We just can’t stop ourselves.. I’ve been planning on murdering some female relatives just this week. Episode 7.10 = Islam Is Utterly Awesome, But Christians Will Murder their convert children.

We all remember the story told by Jesus of the Prodigal Son, where the shamed and outraged father and brother of a wastrel son go out and bludgeon the wastrel to death for his sins and besmirching the family name, right? Not so much.

Oopsie Daisies

Great episode, NCIS, except– that would be Muslims who are the main perpetrators of such murders, along with a smattering of Hindus and Sikhs who engage in the practice, to the tune of 20 000 dead women, teens, and children a year. That we know of: “the overwhelming majority of honor killings are perpetrated by Muslims against Muslims (90% of honor killings known to have taken place in Europe and the United States from 1998 to 2008)” [ Phyllis Chesler, Are Honor Killings Simply Domestic Violence?, Middle East Quarterly, Spring 2009, pp. 61–69; Meforum.org. Retrieved on 1 October 2011. ].

Against this, we don’t see a presentation of Christianity or Judaism, but something to do with families being nice, and Santa Claus. Muhammed vs. Santa? Really?!

Sweet Little Lies

The terribly sad thing, therefore, is that television, TV networks, and the writers of NCIS turned their actors into sock-puppets for the worst kind of lying, pandering, and cover-up for Islam, Jihad, Stealth-Jihad, and cultural domination: a deliberate deception of their audience, too.

Shame on NBC, NCIS, whoever pushed them around, and on our gutless elites and chattering classes for such gutless pandering to barbarism, supremacism, and pussy-footing in our civilizational war.. and for not bothering to know any better. ~

Scottish Muslim T-shirt via this maker

~ ITEM: Buddhas of Bamiyan

~ ITEM: Islam continues to destroy non-Muslim heritage in the modern era.

~ THERE IS NO hyphen in my ‘self-designation’. Not Christian Canadian, or Scottish-Canadian, or Dutch-Canadian, or Straight Canadian, or Hawaiian-Canadian, or any other identifiers which go with my background, ancestors, primary obediences, or national whatnot. Obviously, not because all such things are utterly unimportant to me, but because first is first: Just Canadian.

No doubt the above shirt was made with the best of intentions, but it’s still the wrong way of thinking. Said individual– whether immigrant, descendant of immigrant, or convert– is putting everything else under A Category: ‘Muslim‘. That’s what Islam is– a whole package of identity, activity, and no secularity allowed except in the interim as you get your Jihad & proselytism and cultural domination on. And get the black bags ready for the women-folk.

Old Time Religion

St. Thomas Aquinas and other thinkers of his time were the people who helped articulate the idea that the world (a spehere of activity within God’s active working) had its own laws, means of proceeding, and forms– which, as long as they reflected truth, justice, and goodness– had their own place. Hence saeculo= world, or of the world; or, secular. That’s why we have a world of Roman laws, Greek reason, Judaeo-Christian principles, and pagan weekday names. As St. Thomas put it, “Grace perfects, and does not destroy nature.” If it’s good, then redeem it, and carry on with the work of the Gospel.

Smash, Crash, Bash

Alongside the Jihad-driven bloodshed in Iraq, comes the usual archaeological horrors– destruction of ancient statues, documents, buildings, ruins. Why? Because anything non-Muslim or pre-dating Islam is– according to old Muzzles himself– ‘Of The Time Of Ignorance’. It’s got cooties.

giza_complexLet’s wreck that thing.. and tear off the top 30 feet, guys!

That’s why the Pyramids look like they do in 2014– Saladin started things off by stripping the smaller pyraminds, then in AD1356 some other Islamic caliph did not see enduring symbols of a magnificent culture, and monuments reflecting human greatness and aspirations toward eternity: he saw a bunch of pagan stones lying around glorifying a false religion, and took the ancient casing-stones to make forts, a pretty palace, & some mosques in Cairo. Or, the ancient former Buddhas of Bamiyan– Talibanized in 2001. They are no more, after 2500 years.

Scots Wha’ Hae

Scottish Muslim? No. You are Scottish, period, or you are fundamentally something else. Jihad in Scotland has been mostly slow, stealth-Jihadish, with a few bigger events and cultural clashes along the way. In England and much of Western Europe, the rot is far more advanced, as decaying Western societies in the 60s and 70s aborted or prevented ever-larger cadres of their own next generations in the name of sexual liberation, feminism, selfishness, social convenience, and social engineering.

The first waves of Muslim immigrants tended to be the well-educated products of British-style education, who understood they were joining another society. Their children, and later waves of less-well educated immigrants have seen their role as to dominate the West by violence, political action, and open Jihad and contempt of what they rightly perceive as a fearful political correctness amongst the ruling and chattering classes.

Scottish Muslim? No. ~

Wee Binks was running about outside most days, getting into and out of scrapes, petty crimes and misdemeanors. Life in the great outdoors is being alive, and learning (most of the time( how to stay that way.

The hard-won operating rule for me (along with the useful driving-rule of “They Are All Trying To Kill You”) is fairly simple:

What’s The Worst That Could Possibly Happen?

That is, of any possible course of action or situation or activity, ask yourself thusly: WTWTCH? It establishes the moral seriousness of decisions, bad choices, and life in general.

It’s an old idea, from the Greeks: Wise men learn from wisdom, fools learn from avoidable mistakes. It’s one of the four pagan virtues: prudence.

Lathering With Evil

You don’t actually have to get neck-deep in evil to know that something is evil; or as modern fools would have it “How can you know if you don’t try it?”, which usually comes immediately prior to “Oh dear God, I never thought that would happen!” It’s Adam & Eve versus the verboten arboreal produce all over again.

WTWTCH does not necessarily make you paranoid or OCD or joyless. It’s a good habit of mind which arises from the simple truth that the world is not a harmless theme park full of harmless characters and no consequences ever… and that some of those avoidable consequences are inflicted on those around you.

As a handy-dandy all-purpose preventer, you can liberally apply, lather, rinse and repeat WTWTCH whenever needed, whether you are a yoot, a politician, a parent, or an ordinary person.

Alcohol and/ or drugs plus driving. Unmarried engaging in the baby-making activity. Doing whatever because “everybody else is doing it” (vice makes right). Practicing constant inward adultery against a spouse. Various forms of minor & major theft. Dabbling in the occult. Over-feeding on a degraded pop culture. Elaborate forms of blaming & judging everybody else. Silencing others, or– which is demonically worse– inhumanizing them.

You & Your Stuff Is Evil

Oddly enough, the modern progressive Left is all about externalizing evil (Global Warming GMO unfaircoffee patriarchy capitalism homerphobia) without the turn to the miirror which makes good & evil specific and connected to the self, and the will. If, instead of any introspection, I can hate “Them” for their obvious and manifest “Evil & Injustice”, then I never have to look at the state of my own soul, my participation in small evils & terrible careless decisions and all the petty nastiness and cruelty which darkens our world, as opposed to Them & That.

What’s The Worst That Could Possibly Happen? WTWTCH?

Because evil & accidents, and good and active acts of virtue are (somewhat) in our moral responsibility.

I’m an olden-tymes nerd who saw Star Wars 13 times that first Summer of 1977. I was taught to listen & read via the Hobbit (thanks, Mom!). I’ve read or listened to the trilogy 50 times at least. I’m not hardcore in my nerd-cred any more, because I have a life, and don’t want to be 14 forever, and want to read real books and stuff.

I do take books and stories and imagination and the truth found there very seriously, which is why– as I’ve said before– Jackson is neither educated enough, deep-souled enough, or humble enough to tell all these stories properly. He’s too self-esteemy, modern, and clever (in the bad sense). It’s not about sticking to every jot and tittle of a sometimes uneven children’s novel– it’s about the story, and letting that story tell itself.

Binks is not amused.

Binks is not amused.

Tolkien Advantage

Here’s the thing: if my re-writing the movie, plot, dialogue, humour, and adding missed moments is happening during my first watching of a movie, it’s bad. Like “tear-my-eyes-out-and-hit-my-head-until-I-forget” bad. Star Wars: The Phantom Menace bad. “Oh look, there’s a decent few minutes of decent story & acting, but what fresh hell comes next?” bad.

Mr. Jack$on– like George Luca$– was at his best in the first and second films of the original trilogy, when it was a new thing, hard work, and massive riches didn’t corrupt the whole project… as it did by Return Of The King. The fall of the Dark Lord Lucas is a cautionary tale– a visionary young man who bucked the tide, who then became a hawker of stuff, and the new tide, and a bully-boy to boot. Look At My Works, Ye Mighty….

Enter The Hobbit

The Hobbit films are like a caffeine-jaggled finger-painting of a Michaelangelo masterwork, and the greatest artistic crime of all is very simple: it’s just not Tolkien. Not at heart, via the art, subtlety, small touches, the lived-in small scale of ordinary people making a big difference.

So we’ve got two strikes, and the third debacle incoming– ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies‘ on December 17th, 2014.

Thusfar, I’m titling them so: Indiana Baggins And the Goblins of Doom; Bilbo and The Big Chatty Dragon. The third trainwreck.. hmm… Orcses, Orcses, and Even More Effing Orcses.. with a side-order of digital nazgul, Mordor, Sauron, elves, love-triangles, fart-jokes, recycled Lord Of The Rings trilogy-bits, and– no doubt– more cameos and new characters to completely distort the whole thing, because the greater-than JRR geniuses Peter, Fran, and Philippa are very very pleased with what they’ve worked up. Yawn.  Cha-Ching.

Not So Much

Get stuffed, Mr. Jackson. OK, you’re now rich as Croesus, and made New Zealand a tourist destination.

You’ve also screwed over the author, the true fans, and in these Hobbit movies, left your defecatory filmic efforts in history forever. Hopefully, some day, a reverential and moving film (even two) about Tolkien’s The Hobbit will be made, and people can see Tolkien clearly, and be truly enchanted & re-enchanted, and not simply overwhelmed and left feeling empty.

~ I MUSTA BEEN A weird kid. Surrounded by hippies, various kinds of flaky music, the drug culture, artsy-fartsyism and all that miasma of the 60’s, and I just found it off-putting. Including some of the music. It was a visceral thing.

Seeger? No thanks. Even as a kid I found his music (endlessly repeated at camp & church) creepy, dumbed-down, and not convincing. Now, I’d say that was my honest and intuitive reaction to too much pedantry, mingled with his patronizing smugness, contempt for ordinary people, and ‘Look At Me’ folk royalty crapola. It just somehow irked me. 

My father introduced me to Tom Lehrer. To this day, if given a choice between geezer folk-commies, and sarcastic smart guys, I prefer Tom Lehrer’s satiric ‘Folk Song Army‘, or NatLampoon’s brutally funny “Pull the Triggers, Niggers”, taking on tiresome folk-madonna Joan Baez [Net Worth, $14 million ]. Which queen of folkies is still not dead yet, and was recently spotted on January 31, 2014 singing for rich Democrats & HRH Michelle Obama: “The sold-out event attracted about 600 supporters, who paid from $500 to $32,400, according to the invite“. You read that correctly.

Irony, thy name is rich old folkies, dancing attendance on the elitist American nobility you formerly despised. But it’s OK, because rich bad people on the non-Republican side are the new good guys, in 2014.

Yay Evil!

L.A : The 77th Oscars Academy Awards

Sadly, too many artists, actors, and musicians on the Left have for decades and decades cheerfully ignored, apologized for, or openly embraced the tyrants and regimes who made the lives of their own people a living hell. Wealthy Carlos Santana can wear his pricey Che shirt, apparently blissfully unaware that the mass-murderer Ernie Guevara hated and outlawed rock & roll, hated blacks, gays, fair trials, and many other approved elements of progressive ideology. But hey– what a kick-ass and edgy t-shirt, right? Even Che’s daughter might like a cut of that action. Forget the gulags– we must to be commies, and wear t-shirts of commie-isms!

Regarding Seeger’s squishy and vague 2007 criticism of long-dead monster Stalin, one can only imagine that Uncle Pete’d still be prostituting his talent for ideology if Western Europe had fallen under the Iron Curtain, and a few millions more had been vanished off to the Gulag, and his utopian daydreams been confirmed. Funny thing how espousing evil– from a comfortably safe distance– made him rich and famous and revered as some kind of living legend. Me, I’ll read and weep with Solzhenitsyn; I’ll remember the countless Christians massacred in the name of Communism; and sorrow for the dead babies and starved people of China and North Korea.

May God have mercy upon Mr. Seeger’s soul, for he served the cause of cruel evil, soul-crushing state power, and all from the rich comforts of an America he worked hard to subvert.

Facts and realities and awkward truths are pesky things. And God does not forget.
