Barbarians AT or WITHIN our Gates ?






I have, finally, taken the book off my shelves, the original version that came out in 2013, and am reading it. It caused a scandal in France and hysteria followed during which the author Laurent Obertone had actually to go into hiding (from memory). This did not get better when it was discovered that his work was brilliantly  written and, what was worse for the dream merchants: his research and documentations were impeccable: 











The back cover reads:


Investigation of a taboo subject:

The re-barbarising (I cannot find a satisfactory translation for the French word " ensauvagement" hence what might be my  slightly abortive attempt at creating a neologism)  of a nation:

Every 24 hours:


13,000 robberies, 

2,000 assaults, 

200 rapes




Most of the cases the author documents date from 2011-12. So you can be sure that it the ensauvagement of France has become substantially worse, especially since Angela Merkel has joined the dark side officially.  











Speaking of the Barbarians being at (if not already within) our Gates: it is at that excellent site of Gates of Vienna that I came across this C.S. Lewis quote:






"One of the most dangerous errors is that civilisation is automatically bound to increase and spread. The lesson of history is the opposite; civilisation is a rarity, attained with difficulty and easily lost. The normal state of humanity is barbarism, just as the normal surface of the planet is salt water. Land looms large in our imagination and civilisation in history books, only because sea and savagery are to us less interesting.”






This one below  is just one of  many videos of this kind that I see flicker across my desk, every day .....  watch it if you are interested in seeing the reality that is facing our society, it's a  short and VIOLENT testimony of the savagery piercing the thin veneer of civilisation. The uninvited guests are attacking their "tolerant and generous" hosts'  most vulnerable charges: their children: 













Putting  the above into a kind of rhyming nutshell is Al Wilson: 











P.S.: 

I just received this as I was writing the above:

Latest update


There is an ongoing police operation in Munich, following a knife attack on 21 October. Munich Police have advised people to avoid the areas of Rosenheimer Platz, Munich Ostbahnhof and Munich Ostpark. The level of advice has not changed. Exercise normal safety precautions in Germany, and be aware of the increased threat of terrorism.















"The Barbarians never enter a city until 
someone holds the Gates open for them"

Christopher Hitchens.







Looking at you Merkel et al !!!

  1. I hope our intrepid counterjihadist in Munchen, Michael Stürzenberger, is not a target in today's attack! He has been quite an active provocateur , it seems, lately on the city's steets.

  2. While I'm worried for the safety of Michael Stürzenberger since not only the adherants of the "Religion of Pieces" but also the unholy trinity of (Deep)State/Media/Judiciary want him gone, I have a feeling that the videos we have seen recently of him at the Marienplatz in Munich were from earlier - a couple of years ago.
