When a society’s interests and ideology grow into stark opposition, it is a given that one must eventually succumb to the other. Either they will cast off maladaptive sentiments and prosper as a people, or they will sacrifice themselves to a universalist doctrine. That doctrine itself subsequently cast aside as no longer useful by the replacement society.
Non-whites–those “minorities” that comprise 90% of the world’s population–have spent the last couple of generations artfully setting the West’s stated ideology against its interests and forcing the “majority” to awkwardly choose. In nearly every instance, ideological fidelity was affirmed and another pillar removed from civilization in a macabre jenga game.
What began as indulgent majority politesse has metastasized into a religious dogma for us, and a weapon for them. They aren’t going to deny themselves its use.
And Turkey’s President Erdogan recently wielded this magical talisman quite gaudily.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced that if the European Union (EU) is opposed to Islamophobia, it must accept Turkey within its ranks, the Hurriyet Daily News reports.
At a press conference during his visit to Djibouti [which is the capital of Djibouti], the Turkish President gave a speech on his opposition to terrorism and mass deaths of Muslims in regional conflicts and civil wars. He announced that Turkey will never tolerate terrorists, who may represent different religions. After this, he sharply changed his rhetoric, focusing on the relations between Turkey and the European Union, according to the publication.
“We are testing Europe. Will Europe be able to digest and to accept Turkey, whose people are Muslims? If you oppose Islamophobia, then you must admit Turkey into the EU,” he declared, saying that otherwise the EU is a “Christian club,” according to Turkish news website Today’s Zaman.
“Turkey is included in NATO, OECD… And why don’t you admit it into the EU? Then, the problem is elsewhere,” Erdogan said. “Turkey is a strong country now and it will not come to the EU’s door to beg [for membership].”
His plain begging for membership notwithstanding, when Erdogan says he is testing them we see a rare moment of political candor. Your pieties or your life, Europe? This is a test. As a part of which, the Turkish leader offers a germane point that Europe will one day be forced to publicly address.
You say you are opposed to a rhetorical contrivance called “Islamaphobia.” If this is true, why then do you not grant full EU membership, including travel privileges, to 75 million muslim Turks on your border? Why is that Europe? Is it a phobia? Racism? Christian religious bigotry? If you don’t want your ancient cities, towns, and hamlets swarmed by hostile aliens then it must be one of these. And the burden of proof falls upon the last blue eye to explain otherwise.
This is the corner we have cravenly backed into. By having abjured any claim to our own racial, religious, or cultural lineage we stand upon sand when presented with such reasonable queries. Being polite means politely shuffling off the planet. It’s time to tell Erdogan, and all like him, that Europe is for Europeans–as his countrymen manifestly are not. Any who take exception are free to pound the sand of their own homelands. And while at it, thank Allah that this “Christian Club” hasn’t chosen to reclaim Constantinople…yet.
