Fascism, Communism, Islamism

 

 

Churchill describing the rise of Communism…..

‘In a speech to the House of Commons on November 5, 1919, Winston Churchill said: “…Lenin was sent into Russia … in the same way that you might send a vial containing a culture of typhoid or of cholera to be poured into the water supply of a great city, and it worked with amazing accuracy. No sooner did Lenin arrive than he began beckoning a finger here and a finger there to obscure persons in sheltered retreats in New York, Glasgow, in Berne, and other countries, and he gathered together the leading spirits of a formidable sect, the most formidable sect in the world … With these spirits around him he set to work with demoniacal ability to tear to pieces every institution on which the Russian State depended.”’

Sounds kind of familiar doesn’t it that description of how a violent ideology is spread around an unwitting victim country?

 

Adding to the post on Tommy Robinson and the great and the good’s refusal to admit what is happening….and indeed to actively work to cover it up telling us there is no problem, in fact, they tell us, the ‘problem’ is actually the solution and should be welcomed and embraced….because they have absolutely no intention of tackling that problem due to its embedded nature and the fact that they created it themselves making it intractable and almost impossible to deal with now without major upheaval on their watch….leaving it to future generations to handle the resultant massive conflict and bloodshed that will almost inevitably be the consequence of today’s lack of backbone and character.

Niall Ferguson in the Sunday Times writes…

We let Lenin rise, millions died.  Now it’s Islamism.

The West failed to stop communism and is repeating the awful blunder.

 

According to The Black Book of Communism the grand total of victims of communism was between 85 and 100 million.

All communist regimes everywhere, without exception, were merciless in their treatment of “class enemies” and aggressive too, invading country after country during the cold war.

Could more have been done to stop the Bolshevik pandemic that broke out in Russia in 1917?

The problem was that people underestimated Lenin & Co.  They seemed an unruly bunch of intellectuals: writers of pamphlets, makers of speeches.  No contemporary western observer thought for a moment that their crackpot coup would last.

Foreign intervention, incompetent liberals, clueless bankers: that makes three reasons the Bolsheviks weren’t stopped….along with so many fellow travellers….who so shamefully betrayed their country to Stalin and turned a blind eye to communism’s crimes.

Another reason that the communist virus continued to spread for so long was that good men underestimated the Soviet threat and were assailed by doubts about how much should be done to resist it…often lacking the stomach for the fight and succumbing to relativism…perhaps everything was really the fault of the United States.

Have we learnt anything from this history?

Not nearly enough.

What concerns me is the entirely familiar response we see to a different but, to mind, equally dangerous threat…the rise of militant Islam.  Millions of dollars that have found their way from the Gulf to radical mosques and Islamic centres in the West.  Incompetent liberals – the proponents of multiculturalism who brand any opponent of Jihad an “Islamophobe”.  Clueless bankers who fall over themselves to offer “sharia compliant” loans and bonds.  Fellow travellers – the leftists who line up with the Muslim Brotherhood to castigate Israel at every opportunity.  And the faint-hearted – those who were so quick to pull out of Iraq in 2009 that they allowed the rump of al-Qaeda to morph into ISIS.

We are repeating the catastrophic error of the Bolsheviks.  I fear that we shall wake with a start to discover that the Islamists have repeated the Bolshevik achievement, which was to acquire the resources and capability to threaten our existence.

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

 

Which is why the BBC makes enormous effort to rewrite the past, British Empire bad, Muslim empire…a Golden Age.

And of course it’s not just militant Islam that the BBC supports….that virus ‘Bolshevism’ is on a surge…..Corbyn and his fanatical supporters are riding the wave….the “class enemies” must know what is coming….there’s been plenty of warning….Kuenssberg herself must know…bodyguard and all.  ‘Crackpot’ Corbyn should not be underestimated, nor should what would be the ultimate result of his power grab as his cohorts seek to ensure the revolution is safeguarded ‘for the good of the people’.  Corbyn’s sinister running mate, McDonnell, cheered on the IRA to use bullets and  bombs  to ‘unite Ireland’ and ‘joked’ about kneecapping those who were slow to come round to their way of thinking.  By all means necessary.

    Niall Ferguson is a fool! He doesn’t understand anything of history and demonstrates that amply well here in his article.

    Having just celebrated remembrance Sunday it should have been made much clearer to him, and as such it is inexcusable. To be honest it’s more of the same symptoms of whitey blaming that we have seen become fashionable amongst the elites, breast beating teeth gnashing, soul searching, why did our predecessors not do more to stop it.

    The facts are these.
    World War one was in full destructive horror, when the most destructive man of the 20th Century Arthur Zimmerman – only Jew in the German government deliberately injected Lenin and his comrades into a Russia which was suffering food shortages due to a wholly incompetent Tsar who cared nothing about his peoples sufferings and would have happily machine gunned the starving masses.
    He had to be dragged kicking and screaming back from the front to address the people, but it was already too late. His soldiers had refused to open fire on the striking women and children and he had lost his authority.

    What was the West supposed to do in the Middle of the War to end all wars? We lost over a million men and at the end they were ready to mutiny if there had been any suggestion of aiding the Tsar we would have likely ended up a Communist state here too!

    In fact so scared were the elites at the time that they wouldn’t even offer the Tsar and his family safe haven. What they did do was to offer another band of incompetents aid, the white Russians who if they hadn’t been led by a load of posh aristocrats who didn’t know what they were doing, would have won.

    We did just about everything it was possible to do and Fergusson is a fool for failing to acknowledge it, it renders the whole of his piece valueless.

        Not at all, the fact that he fails to see even the possibility that Western politicians are wholly corrupt is a massive blind spot which means the problem can never be tackled.

        “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

        Well it seems from my piece that the past has not been remembered at all and the present bears no relation to the past either.

        Looking back in history I cannot see a time when politicians were so ready to accept eye watering sums from foreign governments and everyone didn’t just turn a blind eye, they actively silenced themselves and others over any criticism.

        An estimated £200 million has flowed into Blairs coffers from the Middle East, Saudi is the second biggest funder of UK Universities – with of course the proviso that they promote their extreme version of Islam. Cameron sets up a Sharia compliant bank for them and cracks down hard on anyone who dares criticise Muslims, and Theresa May follows suit supressing a government report into Saudi financed terrorism in the UK (obviously it’s not complimentary of Saudi), and commissions a report into how Sharia law can be incorporated into UK law, again funded by Saudi.

        This is the reason why, and not some airy fairy yesterday backwards looking false parallel with a history which never even existed.

        We cannot solve this, we cannot even begin to talk about a solution so long as people like Douglas Murray – old Etonian mate of Cameron manages to get his head out of the sand and starts to get an inkling that the politicians he regards as honourable but misguided are anything but. Sinister and deeply corrupt is closer to the truth.

          Douglas Murray…head in sand? Only man with his head above the parapet usually. A man who said Islam will be the death of Europe…head in sand? LOL.

          Did you actually read any of what Ferguson said? I think he pretty well covered everything you say he didn’t…Gulf money and politicians who refuse to tackle the issue for whatever reason…’faint-heartedness’ or being fellow travellers in one way or another and the silencing of dissent on the subject.

          Cameron is as guilty as any politician, journalist or commentator of making grand statements about tackling ‘Islamism’ but dodging tackling Islam itself….which is precisely what Ferguson is talking about.

            Paywalling puts paid to that I’m afraid, however if you read what I said I believe it still stands, Murray is too interested in the symptoms not the cause, thus he cannot even begin to solve the issue.

              No paywalling here…I typed out Ferguson’s words in the post so anyone could read them…please do….I’ll change the text colour to blue for absolute clarity.

    Because when immigration is too high (no figure given), when the pace of change is too fast, it’s impossible to build a cohesive society. It’s difficult for schools and hospitals and core infrastructure like housing and transport to cope. And we know that for people in low-paid jobs, wages are forced down even further while some people are forced out of work altogether. … So there is no case, in the national interest, for immigration of the scale we have experienced over the last decade.”

    While Germany facilitated the insertion of Lenin into an unstable Russia, history repeated itself when France helped Ayatollah Khomeini to return to Iran and topple the Shah. They even lost out on one or two lucrative armaments sales already agreed at the time – but that’s the French for you, selflessly generous when it comes to the benefit of mankind.

    Good analogy from Churchill. Heck-Lenin was sent from Switzerland to Helsinki/St Petersburg via a sealed train carriage, like nuclear waste or anthrax.

    Thanks for the post Alan.
    Respect Thoughtfuls vehemence and there are some big points, contentious ones too.
    None of us were there-but certainly unsure about whether the Tsar was a lazy fop who bottled out and hated his peasants.
    Or was he a decent husband and father, scared off by what happened to his dad, all too easy to go along with the well-intentioned Mensheviks-and by no means the villain of the piece, good God-fearing bloke who was duped and naive?
    Murray can do no more that raise his head and speak his truths-he`s doing a grand job, we are the people who need to rise up to his exhortations.
