It has been said–specifically here–that natural selection favors not the most intelligent, but the least delusional. Of course delusion is a luxury of widely varying costs. Africans who devour albino genitals for their medicinal properties are delusional. As are those who cringe away nights in fear of conjugal visits from the tokoloshe. But these are comparatively economical superstitions, and only mildly maladaptive in a society that disgorges such colossal egg sacs.
In contrast, Westerners behave as though they’ll receive refunds for every unused ovum. And are meticulous in not favoring what 1.3 offspring they do produce to the teeming scrum scratching at their borders. In space and microcircuitry, we have conquered the infinite and the infinitesimal. But put against incantations of contrived ooga booga words, and we fall prostrate like primitives before the Moon God. We are as enslaved to our own irrationalities as any plate-lipped cannibal.
One of these superstitions is more costly than the other.
Which brings me–perhaps surprisingly–to the Slavs. It can hardly be debated that this branch of our tribal tree has not reached quite so high as its neighbor in Europe’s northwest. The latter being the source of my own genetic endowment. Though nature is remorseless in her disregard for mere achievement. It is only those that avoid the dearest delusions who gain her favor for the future. And for all the incomparable Anglo-Saxon success in arts, invention, and civilization, it is the Slav who is set to trundle past his frenetically self-destructing peer.
We’ve talked previously about the valiant Visegrad Group, and will discuss today an impoverished nation on its farthest periphery: Bulgaria. As a country sharing a lengthy border with Turkey, it has naturally become one of Eastern Europe’s many pedways to Merkelville. In response, a 59 mile razor wire No Trespassing sign was erected. As you will predict, honoring the intent of locked doors isn’t one of Our Values, and so foot traffic has continued largely unabated.
Bulgarian Civilian Patrolling Border With Turkey Has Already Single-Handedly Captured 25 Illegal Migrants
Dinko Valev came across his new hobby while riding ATVs with friends in the backwoods beyond his home – just miles from the Turkish border. When he was jumped by a man claiming to be a Syrian migrant screaming “Allah” and who tried to steal his ATV to make good his escape, Mr. Valev took the man and others prisoner.
He is now calling for other Bulgarian civilians to join him in establishing unofficial “voluntary border squads” to support over-stretched police, and has even suggested the government start paying bounties for every illegal captured, to encourage others to get involved.
“This is our country. Only jihadists, Syrians and the Taliban are trying to enter. In three sorties since August I’ve captured 25 men. Imagine how many people have passed through there in the rest of the time”.
Mr. Valev is deeply unconvinced that the men he is capturing are what might be called genuine refugees. He remarked: “In France, those that did the attacks, were they fleeing? They destroy, they want to conquer. They try with a screwdriver to stab me, saying “Allah, Allah”. Here at the border, it is hell.
…in a separate interview with Bulgaria’s EraTV Mr. Valev explained in his neighbourhood “if we don’t help ourselves, no one else will”.
Of course. The wait for a foreign savior is almost always terminal. If we don’t help ourselves, no one will. We are Dinko Valev.
Yet obviously not all parties are as sanguine about Slavic ascendance. Video of Bulgarian Vigilantes Tying Up Migrants Highlights Political Xenophobia, Say Rights Groups
The release of another amateur video showing a Bulgarian vigilante group aggressively detaining migrants has sparked outrage among human rights groups who say the government is encouraging citizens to act outside the law and inciting violence against migrants.
Human rights groups. That’s an interesting euphemism. Though it’s gratifying to know how judiciously these organizations marshal their finite outrage on inconveniences to foreign invaders, rather than squander it on the misery of innocent Europeans. Unfortunately Eastern European natives don’t always share the same priorities.
In another instance of official approval, last week members of an ultranationalist group called the Organization for Protection of Citizens were personally presented with an award by border police chief Antonio Angelov for detaining 23 migrants.
“The authorities are effectively institutionalizing these groups, who are frankly bandits,” said Margarita Ilieva, Legal Defense Program Director for the Helsinki Committee in Bulgaria. “The actions of these groups are in violation of national criminal law [in Bulgaria] and international human rights law… yet you have the director of the police awarding them for these crimes and the prime minister thanking them.”
Authorities praising men who defend their land from foreign incursion? These bigots are no better than George Washington. Too bad we didn’t have a patriotic Helsinki Committee at Concord.
The Helsinki Committee has called for vigilantes such as Valev to be prosecuted for their actions and has also written open letters requesting the Attorney General investigate several senior officials, including the country’s prime minister, for inciting racially motivated violence.
What malevolent Finn could possibly be sponsoring this Helsinki outfit, I wonder.
The Committee is a nonprofit organization entirely funded by donations. In recent years the largest donors have been public and private organizations such as the Leon Levy Foundation, Open Society Foundation…and the United States Agency for International Development.
Readers will recognize Open Society as a US Government front and the Agency for International Development as the Soros umbrella–or is it the other way around? The distinction is immaterial.
But being unfamiliar with the Leon Levy foundation, I found its charter as follows:
The Leon Levy Foundation’s mission is to continue Leon Levy’s philanthropic legacy, encouraging and supporting development in six areas: understanding the ancient world; Arts and Humanities; preservation of nature and gardens; neuroscience research; human rights; and Jewish culture.
I’m uncertain as to whether it is nature and gardens or neuroscience that is advanced by prosecuting Bulgarian patriots, but imagine only an expert in Jewish culture could say for sure.
Regardless, the skirmish lines are drawn.
However a recent survey by Bulgarian National Television found widespread public support for the vigilantes, with 84 percent of respondents saying they thought the groups should be recognized and supported by the government.
So it is 84% of a sovereign nation’s citizenry v. Hebrew Spectre and Uncle Sam for control of the Bulgarian state. Looks like an uphill climb for the Bulgarians.
And that is why today we celebrate the courage and pluck of men like Dinko Valev. Slashing at the Soros tentacles on an ATV in a track suit. Godspeed Slavs.
