A Chilling Thought from the Ancient World

From The New Penguin Atlas of Medieval History by Colin McEvedy:

Not that the Germans had any thought of destroying the Empire: it had existed for so long that everyone assumed it would go on forever.  What the barbarian warlords wanted was imperial grants and commissions, lands for their followers and positions for themselves.

McEvedy is describing the Western Roman Empire in AD 408.  Rome was still culturally important and rich, but they had been relying on hired foreigners for so long that they had very few military men of their own.  It had gone out of fashion for young Romans to become warriors; Rome had plenty of gold to buy the temporary allegiance of barbarians.

The Germanic and Gaulish tribes to the north were used to being able to alternately work for and attack Rome; they had no real loyalty to Rome but had grown used to Roman institutions being rich and easily manipulated.  Visigoths sacked Rome in this period, not intending to hold (and feed) the city, but instead staying only for three days.  Their move was intended to show Rome that they were serious about their demands for ransom.

The Western Empire was not taken seriously as a political force after this point, though Rome was considered worth sacking several more times during the fifth century.

SPJ SLAWBs

The Society of Professional Journalists established themselves as a pack of anti-white, anti-kafir bigots with this left-wing screed.  (Hat tip: Dennis Mangan.)

I'll leave it to Dennis to quote the thing.  Me?  I'll do what "journalists" do best: interpret.

Some key directives:

When noting that Muslims have been responsible for a huge amount of terrorism, pretend that there isn't a common reason (Sura 9:29, among other passages) for their violence.


When noting that Muslims have been responsible for a huge amount of terrorism, pretend that there weren't many many acts of historical aggression against non-Muslims (the conquest of Visigothic Spain, the near extermination of Buddhists in India, etc.), preceding recent acts of terrorism.


In fact, it is best just not to note that Muslims have been responsible for a huge amount of terrorism.


Ensure that white voices are drowned out by those of darker-skinned people, whose opinions about terrorism targeting white Americans are valid.  Opinions of the people targeted are not valid on their own.


When writing about terrorism, pretend that white supremacists and radical anti-abortionists have even approached Islam in scale and scope.  Most of your readers will lack a sense of the scale involved and have no basis to even begin questioning this deceit.  


Word combinations such as "Islamic terrorist" or "Muslim extremist" are accurate and edifying because they link a whole religion to the violent activity demanded by that religion's holy book (Sura 9:29).  Since it is the duty of the dhimmi to cover up Islamic violence, avoid these word combinations.  


Avoid using terms such as "jihad" unless you are careful to obscure their greater meaning. The basic meaning of "jihad" is to exert oneself for the good of Islam and to aggrandize oneself.  Since Islam is a religion of permanent warfare which has attained most of its power through violence, "jihad" is accurately used to describe violence.  Under no circumstances should any journalist stoop to this level of accuracy.


These are your countrymen, openly planning to silence you and replace your voice with that of people sworn to kill or enslave you (Sura 9:29).
