Over the weekend, while most people out in real America were watching football or getting in their last days of yard clean-up, the White House was attacked by a mob that assaulted
Secret Service uniformed division guards and climbed the fence to breach the secure perimeter.
And no these weren’t the “MAGA extremists” the media are always squealing about – they were Muslims, many of them non-citizens or immigrants, and their Leftist Democrat allies.
Neither were they chanting “stop the steal” or there to demand fair elections and an end to systemic vote fraud in Democrat-controlled districts and states.
They were chanting “Allahu Akbar” the Muslim battle cry and “from the river to the sea Palestine will be free” to demand the genocide of the Jewish people in Israel and the Islamization of the United States.
However, this should surprise no one who has been paying attention since 9/11 2001 when the war Islam has declared on the West came to the United States in a way that should have galvanized America’s leaders into action against the enemy, but instead prompted them to virtually surrender to the cultural jihad being waged against our country.
A lot of the blame lies with former President George W. Bush who invited terrorist-aligned American Muslims into his counsels and legitimized organizations that should be investigated and prosecuted for providing material support to terrorists and undermining our constitutional republic.
Bush’s mistakes were adopted and accelerated by Obama who opened the borders to immigration from Muslim countries and purged anyone who knew and understood Islam and its military doctrine of hijrah or conquest via immigration.
And this was fine with the Left and Democrats, who as our friend Emerald Robinson pointed out in a recent post to her Substack, the Left has allied itself to the followers of Islam for the purpose of making the West less white, less Christian, and less unified. That’s the goal of “multiculturalism” in a nutshell, concluded Ms. Robinson.
This isn’t a new phenomenon or something that the Left just figured out in the past decade or two, it has been a project of Marxists since the 1920 Congress of the Peoples of the East hosted by the newly formed Soviet Union and the Communist International.
The Congress had little immediate effect, but it accomplished one thing that is still relevant today – promotion of the notion of revolution combined with Marxism’s willingness to compromise with Muslim traditions. As Marxist historian E. H. Carr* framed it:
Muslim beliefs and institutions were treated with veiled respect, and the cause of world revolution narrowed down to specific and more manageable dimensions. The Muslim tradition of jihad, or holy war against the infidel, was harnessed to a modern crusade of oppressed peoples against the imperialist oppressors…
In 1920 Imperial Britain was the main target, today it is the United States and Western Civilization more generally.
Islam, as it is today practiced by millions of Muslims across the globe, is inimical to the separation of church and state and government based on constitutional liberty. We are in a war of ideas, not just with radical Islamists, but with concepts deeply embedded in Muslim culture. No one in the West, and certainly not in America, is fighting that war. And as long as mass legal (and illegal) immigration from Muslim countries continues unabated we are certain to lose.
Transferring murder, mayhem and radicalism from dysfunctional Islamic countries to Europe and America, and in so doing voluntarily putting our own citizens at great risk is not a requirement of being a compassionate, open-minded, enlightened and tolerant human being.
Moreover, such questions do not constitute “Islamophobia.” Assimilated Muslims know these kinds of questions are fair minded and entirely reasonable. After all, the Egyptian and Pakistani people also face Islamic terrorism in their own countries. That’s why Egypt doesn’t allow “Palestinian refugees” into the country and why Pakistan just expelled over a million Afghans from its territory.
It is naive to believe that these millions of anti-American immigrants don’t represent a threat.
Much as many Americans wish it were otherwise, and as much as the Fifth Column of Muslims and Leftists of the Red – Green Axis, including the millions of Muslims we have admitted to America since 9/11 might try to convince us otherwise, we are still in a war, and quite frankly last weekend’s attack on the White House shows we are not fighting it very effectively and certainly not winning it.
