Nations are great things

NATIONS ARE different, and that’s what makes them interesting.

I favor national identities and borders that keep them intact. The counter to this opinion is called globalism. Globalists want things to be all tossed together, no borders, where people can hold hands and sing Kumbaya at a moment’s notice.

If there’s an aroma of Patchouli, then all the better.

While I favor nations, I’m not too keen on government, which I think should be kept to a minimum everywhere. I’m a lowercase liberatarian.

Recently, I opened a Facebook page under my real name. Filling in the part about my political druthers, I tried to just put libertarian, but Facebook would not let me. It insisted I put Libertarian Nationalist.

I thought about it for a moment, and I realized I am a nationalist. I favor nations and borders. When I’m in the United States, I favor American nationalism. When I’m in Mexico, I favor Mexican nationalism.

I support a border wall between the United States and Mexico, and I support a border wall between Mexico and Guatemala. Walls make good neighbors.

Related to this is that many years ago the Europeans lost their collective minds and initiated the European Union, a globalist wet dream. Not surprisingly, it was the British who first came to their good senses and departed the EU cage.

In the video above, Nigel Farage, one of my favorite fellows, provides a beautiful description of how the despotic EU works, a description that is so clear that even a nincompoop can understand it.

I offer a tip of the sombrero to the Brits for leaving the EU, even though they only did it by a slim margin. No matter. It worked. With luck, other nations of Europe will get fed up with the EU and do the same thing. Let us pray so.

Just plain nuts

THE UNITED STATES of America has gone absolutely goofy.

Let’s look at a few recent examples, starting with Barry Obama and his gang. They are unable to mouth the term “Islamic terrorism.” This is in spite of Islamic terrorism being the most violent, grisly phenomenon in today’s world.

Most Mohammedans are not terrorists, but many — probably most — silently cheer the terrorists. Of course, they do not consider them terrorists. They are just soldiers of Mohammed.

goofyMost of the Arab world is populated by silent co-conspirators. They broke that silence on 9/11 when there were joyous street celebrations from Baghdad to Beirut, Riyadh to Tehran, and every place in between. So much for their not being in agreement.

The current situation involves political correctness — that extremely dangerous, left-wing, Kumbaya nonsense with a cute name — which holds that no one must be “offended” and that all cultures have value and merit respect. All cultures do not have value. Some are corrupt and rotten.

Here is example No. 1.  Duke University has approved a weekly Mohammedan “call to prayer” that will be chanted from the Duke campus bell tower every Friday at 1 p.m. During the three-minute chant, which will be “moderately amplified,” the Duke campus will sound like Mecca. This is nuts.

Here is example No. 2. The Oxford University Press (notice the frequency of “university,” which is telling) will ban the words sausage and pig in its children’s books to avoid — are you ready? — “offending” Mohammedans and Jews.

Of course, it’s not really Jews they’re worried about, is it? It’s Mohammedans. This is nuts.

Moving on to example No. 3, we hear conservative (no surprise there) British political leader Nigel Farage say there are areas in the United Kingdom that have been virtually taken over by Mohammedans, “Muslim ghettos” where non-Mohammedans are excluded.

We also learn that in parts of London there are Mohammedan religious police patrolling streets for non-Mohammedan activity. This is nuts.

Example No. 4 has nothing to do with Mohammedans specifically. It’s a different sort of politically correct asininity.

Collectivist New York Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a new ID card that all residents over the age of 14 can get, regardless of immigration status, which means illegal aliens can get one.

De Blasio came into office due to a critically low voter turnout, plus most of those who voted are clueless.

De Blasio, promoting the new card, said, “We don’t want any of our fellow New Yorkers to feel like second-class citizens.” He is referring to people who are not citizens at all. This is completely nuts.

All of this illustrates the deepening dark hole into which the flaky, Utopian Left is taking what was long the superior Judeo-Christian culture of Western Europe and North America. Weep.

(UPDATE: Due to intense blowback from sensible people, Duke has reversed its decision to broadcast the Mohammedan call to prayer. This does not cancel the nuttiness exhibited by Duke in making the decision in the first place.)
