Yesterday in Warsaw, beneath of backdrop of heroism and resistance at the memorial to the Warsaw Uprising in 1944, the President of the United States delivered a rousing call to Poland and indeed the West.
The President lauded the brave spirit of the Poles in World War II and Pope John Paul II, whose election as Pope in 1979, was the beginning of the end for communism in Poland.
But, much of the speech was dedicated to praising the greatness of Western Civilization and the importance of defending it.
“The West became great, not because of paperwork and regulations, but because people were allowed to chase their dreams and pursue their destinies. Americans, Poles and nations of Europe value freedom and sovereignty. We must work together to confront forces, whether they come inside or out, from the south or the east, that threaten over time to undermine these values and to erase the bonds of culture, faith and tradition that make us who we are. If left unchecked, these forces will undermine our courage, sap our spirit and weaken our will to defend ourselves and our societies.”
“We are the fastest and the greatest community. There is nothing like our community of nations. The world has never known anything like our community of nations. We write symphonies. We pursue innovation. We celebrate our ancient heroes, embrace our timeless traditions and customs, and always seek to explore and discover brand-new frontiers. We reward brilliance, we strive for excellence, and cherish inspiring works of art that honor God. We treasure the rule of law and protect the right to free speech and free expression. We empower women as pillars of our society and of our success. We put faith and family, not government and bureaucracy, at the center of our lives.”
“And we debate everything. We challenge everything. We seek to know everything, so that we can better know ourselves. And above all, we value the dignity of every human life, protect the rights of every person and share the hope of every soul to live in freedom. That is who we are. Those are the priceless ties that bind us together as nations, as allies and as a civilization.”
“Just as Poland could not be broken, I declare today for the world to hear that the West will never, ever be broken. Our values will prevail, our people will thrive, and our civilization will triumph.”
The President was indeed correct to speak of the triumphs of Western Civilization.
The West has given the world Judeo-Christianity, the Renaissance, the Reformation, the philosophy espousing the natural rights of man, democracy; begun in Greece, which took root in Great Britain and which was then exported to America, where a shot was heard round the world on April 19, 1775.
The West has given the world music, art and science that cannot be replicated by any other culture or civilization in history.
The West has given the world Mozart, Michelangelo, Monet, Copernicus, Bach, Beethoven, the Beatles, Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Shakespeare, Maya Angelou, Jonas Salk, Steve Jobs, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Winston Churchill, Kennedy, Lech Walesa, Reagan and Thatcher.
In the West, freedom rules, the rights of man are respected and the teachings of Jesus Christ abound.
In the West, animals are treated humanely, while in the Middle East, Africa and Asia, animals are tortured, hunted and abused for profit or because of warped, theological tenets.
The West is simply superior to other cultures and civilizations on this planet. It has always been and with the help of God, it always will be.
But, there are those who wish that the West and its glorious civilization and culture be destroyed. There are those who are willingly cultivating deliberate chaos in their countries, in order to usher in a new dark age. Under the pretense of political correctness, they tell us that unvetted Islamic immigration is harmless and that endless government regulations are for our safety.
They tell us that other cultures, like the Satanic death cult of Islam are somehow equal to Judeo-Christianity; when in actuality, Islam is not only inferior to Christianity, but simply incompatible with Western Civilization.
As the bombs go off, the women are raped and the priests murdered on their altars, they silence anyone who is against the forced Islamization and cultural pillaging of the West.
They tell us that Hijabs are fashionable and that Islam is humane and peaceful. There is no such thing as peaceful Islam. There is no difference between radical Islam and Islam. There is just Islam and its endless litany of violence.
They tell us that we should be ashamed for the greatness of Western Civilization and its vast accomplishments. With the sick ideology practiced by Cultural Marxists, patriots are now white nationalists and anyone against the globalist Goetterdammerung of Europe is a racist.
We are supposed to embrace socialism and feminism and lunatic concepts like gender neutrality.
They tell us that globalism and the state is God. Yet, as President Trump remarked, “The people of Poland, the people of America and the people of Europe still cry out, “We want God.”
Most of Western Civilization’s enemies reside in the West. Most of Western Civilization’s enemies are government leaders, Democratic Party officials and EU bureaucrats. They are traitorous, new world order, globalist Quisling scum whose simple goal is bringing the West down and turning it into some warped, Orwellian, PC, gender neutral, anti Christian caliphate.
The world has seen these narcissists and psychotics before. In 2017, the enemies of the West are called Merkel, who has opened the doors of Western Europe and Germany to every thug, rapist and Jihadi from the Middle East and Africa. Merkel has done more damage to Germany than Ike’s Supreme Allied Expeditionary Force ever did.
In 2017, the enemies of the West are called Macron, who believes he’s a modern day Jupiter; but in reality a globalist Sun King and high society thug, who has been put in place to hammer the final nails in the coffin of France.
The threats to the West have never been clearer. If the West is to survive for another millennium it must destroy the dark forces that wish to annihilate it.
A thousand years ago, the Crusaders defended Christianity and Western Civilization with the cry of Deus Vult, ‘God Wills It.’
It may indeed take another crusade or crusades, these largely internal, to restore the West. So be it.
