European Culture Died in Auschwitz - Repost

This is a repost of a blog post from Janaury 2008 as a part of a Best of 2008 series

European Culture Died in Auschwitz -

Just moments ago I was sent this essay:


I walked down the street in Barcelona, and suddenly discovered a terrible truth -Europe died in Auschwitz. We killed six million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz we burned a culture, thought, creativity, talent. We
destroyed the chosen people, truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world.

The contribution of this people is felt in all areas of life: science, art, international trade, and above all, as the conscience of the world. These are the people we burned.

And under the pretense of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove to ourselves that we were cured of the disease of racism, we opened our gates to 20 million Muslims, who brought us stupidity and ignorance, religious extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and poverty, due to an unwillingness to work and support their families with pride.

They have blown up our trains and turned our beautiful Spanish cities into the third world, drowning in filth and crime.

Shut up in the apartments they receive free from the government, they plan the murder and destruction of their naive hosts.

And thus, in our misery, we have exchanged culture for fanatical hatred, creative skill for destructive skill, intelligence for backwardness and superstition.

We have exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and their talent for hoping for a better future for their children, their determined clinging to life because life is holy, for those who pursue death, for people consumed by the desire for death for themselves and others, for our children and theirs.

What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe.
I haven’t attempted to verify its authenticity but was simply asked: “What do you think of this? Do you agree?”

At first glance I can agree with a whole lot of it, but before you think of me as a xenophobe allow me to explain.

I was just thinking about a topic very similar to this, this morning on the way to work. If we look back in history the US has always been a great country not only because of what we accomplished but because of how we thought of ourselves. Sure we were the Ugly American that called a spade a spade, but at least you knew where you stood when dealing with us. On the other hand Europe especially after WWII felt it necessary to never offend another person. Whether this was a conscious decision or not we don't know but they slipped further and further towards a socialist society, where everyone is equal all in an effort to avoid another Hitler and the final solution. You see if we are all equal there is no one to blame and no scapegoat, unfortunately it hasn’t worked out quite that well.

As soon as Europe adopted this new belief structure those who realized they could use this new mindset to their advantage moved in, first in their own little enclaves and ghettos and then into government itself. The liberal socialist parties began to rail against the supposed inequalities in society and that life should be fair, an artificial utopia where everyone stays home and all is provided. But to accomplish this they first had to raise the revenue to pay for it so taxes rose and benefits were handed out like gifts for the masses. A modern day version of the famous Roman bread and circuses policies, keep them fed and entertained and no one will complain when you come to take for the rest of society.

And still the inequalities exist only now those of privilege are the politicians that suck up the fruits of those stupid enough to still be in the labor force and distribute it to their followers. And our problems are only beginning:

Add in the Radical Muslims who are so "secure" in their beliefs that they can not even stand to hear someone of another religion speak of their God in any manner. They who are so "secure" that their way is the only way that they will behead anyone who does not convert, or will even behead someone who leaves their Islamic traditions. Those who are so peace loving that they will threaten with murder those who dare question their beliefs. And as they moved into Europe the mindset of never offending anyone that can hurt you is taken to the extreme and we have large sections of European cities run by charismatic Muslim clerics imposing Sharia Law upon the residents, Muslim or not. Because of this we can see that the “disturbances” of France are only the tip of the iceberg. Not a symptom of the inequality and racism the rioters hide behind as their “cause celeb” but a function of their movement.

European Culture hides in the countryside in anachronistic fiefdoms and the “elite” who are so afraid of conflict throw money at the problem; money they plundered from those that built European culture with their own hands.

Look now towards the US and we can see the "enlightened" taking us down the same path. Christianity and Judaism are fair targets for punditry, hate and "art" but Islamic faith is sacrosanct. Do not even dare utter the name Mohammed or you can be accused of being intolerant. Even the President is forbidden from stating that it is Islamic radicals who are using our own insane laws against us in this fight for fear of offending the voting blocs. And don’t even get me started on Southern Culture and how it is now forbidden to acknowledge an antebellum South ever existed unless you are seeking reparations for a past that we as a Country abolished with a Constitutional Amendment.

Ask yourself why do the "elite" of this country really want us to be like Europe where racism still runs rampant? Where Socialism vies for supremacy and personal liberty is stripped away for the common good of not offending anyone? Where your thoughts can be considered a crime against humanity and your words cause for murder?

Upon further reflection I'd have to say that I agree 100% with this essay, maybe not every word or concept but definitely with the thesis. All of European glory and culture died in Auschwitz, not just with the murder and extermination of the Jews and other "undesirables" so deemed by the Nazi party but also within the hearts of Europeans. The Continent that gave us the Magna Charta, the Renaissance and Enlightenment has now given us a life devoid of responsibility and purpose where offense is a high crime and tolerance is the height of intolerance.

France and Germany proves that Europe is showing the signs of waking up from their 60 years of slumber and utopia searching and we can only hope that the rest of Europe follows suit. Hitler killed the Jews but Europe threw their Culture into the furnace with them and we are all suffering because of it.

Wake up Europe! Wake up Everyone!
