It’s one of those bizarre headlines beloved of the Social Justice Warrior left: “White Nationalism Is Destroying the West.” I won’t trouble you to take you through the article itself; its content is predictably uninspired.
There are some signs, again, that the progressives at the NYT are not in control of their huddled masses. For one, single women. One, named Peisinoe, writes:
I’m tired of this paper’s tireless apologia and blind defense of Islam.
This piece, like all others, conveniently fails to mention other ‘minor’ events such as the impact of massive, predominantly male, Muslim migration has on the freedom and security of women. As this paper constantly act as if the vast majority of Muslim men support freedom and equality of women.
The article forgets small facts like the mass sexual attacks of Cologne, where over one thousand ‘refugees’ (mostly North African economic migrants, about one thousand) organized themselves to openly sexually molest and rape over 600 women during the new Year’s Eve party.
The fact the NYT never really provided decent coverage of that event, or on the systemic (and generally legal) violence against women in Muslim cultures indicates its high level of comfort with a certain level of misogyny. It will no dare speak against its preferred ideologies even when entire countries treat 50% of their population as sub-human due to their gender.
You are so concerned with defending Islam that you turn a blind eye to the fact these men do NOT want gender equality, and probably never will – it indicates how you also view women as deserving second class citizenship. We – our bodies, our intellect, our freedom – are simply collateral damage to your ideology of tolerance for a culture of intolerance.
This shows the increasing fracture on the left: women encouraged to lead a life of sexual profligacy and childlessness by the cultural commissars are now realizing they have been used. Perhaps they can serve as an example to the next generations. We wish Peisinoe well; maybe her quiverful of children can vote against pro-Islam politicians?
But more to the point is the argument made by one Tucson Geologist. First, we note that there is an explicitly Biblical requirement to care for creation. We prefer the KJV phrasing: “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”
What this dominion means is further refined in Genesis 2: “When God placed the first man in the garden of Eden, it was to ‘work it and watch over it’. Adam was commanded to take care of the earth, to fill and cultivate the rest of it following after the example God had given him in the garden.” So we are called to be stewards of creation, meaning an environmental concern is not foreign to the Patriactionary.
In this light, we note what Tucson Geologist said: “I am supposed to care deeply about global warming and how it will adversely affect our environment in 100-150 years. But I am not supposed to think about how a large Muslim population will affect our civic culture in 100-150 years?”
And there is a logic so clear as to be breathtaking. As reactionaries, we aren’t trying to preserve the knowledge inherent in ancient ways of doing things. Rather, we are engaged in fighting Cultural Climate Change.
