At the beginning of the fifth century, two hundred years before Muhammad appeared, there were seven-hundred Catholic bishops in North Africa. Two-hundred of them attended the Council of Carthage in 535 AD. By the middle of900 AD there were forty left. By 1050 AD, there were only five left. In 1076 AD there were two.
ISLAM AND THE WEST
The first five hundred years

Professor John Esposito, Founding Director of the Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Centre for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown University, USA, would have it that ‘five centuries of peaceful co-existence’ between Muslims and Christians were brought to an end by ‘political events and an imperialpapal power play,’ that was to lead to a ‘centuries-long series of so-called holy-wars that pitted Christendom against Islam, and left an enduring legacy of misunderstanding and mistrust.Continue reading “Understanding Islam VIII: Islam and the West”

Tradthot or not, Lauren Southern is using her powers for good, travelling the world detailing the attempts to extinguish the white race, and the efforts our brothers and sisters are going to in order to survive. She has recently been in South Africa producing a long-form documentary, giving us a personal face to the horrors we only read about or see on news reports.
The murder rate against white farmers in South Africa is four times the already staggeringly high national average. The government and the police do nothing to stop this, as evidenced by the fact that there are four times as many private security personnel in South Africa as there are official police and army combined. Indeed, senior black political figures in South Africa sing “Shoot the Boer” and call for the forced expropriation of white land without compensation. Read on…
Australian governments have rushed to bring incompatible cultures into Australia. Will they act to rescue their own in South Africa from disenfranchisement and murder? Where are those radicals that stopped South Africa’s rugby teams playing in Australia in the 1970s? We remember the mayhem they caused. There needs to be a petition demanding the relief of destitute white South Africans in squatter camps and their transport to Australia.
The evidence of the disastrous effects of multiculturalism is all around us in the West. Peoples from cultures incompatible with Western values at best self-segregate and at worst perpetrate crime and violence. Australia’s dominant political class boasts continually of Australia’s success as a ‘multicultural society’. But it’s a deadly charade. The crime and violence of particular ethnic groups speak against it; the ethnic segregation in some suburbs of Sydney and Melbourne speaks against it. Black Pigeon’s video below provides the academic evidence.
Last week it was reported that Cape Town in South Africa was on the point of running out of water. From the report, the cause seemed to be drought. THINK AGAIN. Incompetence and mismanagement, the result of South Africa’s racial quotas are at least part of the cause.
Well-known Youtuber Lauren Southern is presently producing a documentary on the racial quotas and the murder of white farmers. This is news that the Mainstream Media will not report.
If you are wondering what can happen when whites become a minority in their own country, this video will give you a clue. Listen to this conversation between Lauren Southern and Stefan Molyneux for the critical circumstances of the white population in South Africa.
The Trump controversy about “shithole countries” perfectly demonstrates how he has broken the PC-elitist hold on political debate.
Fact: some countries are shitholes, unfortunately. Fact: effective immigration programs recruit highly-capable people from advanced, successful countries (just look at Melbourne’s Sudanese gang crime problem for the alternative approach).
Trump is simply being realistic about the situation. He’s also saying that immigration policies should be framed for the benefit of the people living in a country right now, not as some gift to the rest of the world.
Leftist elites are upset with Trump because they believe in a borderless world, where immigration is framed around owing the rest of the world something, instead of hard-headed national interests.
In truth, importing shithole people from shithole countries creates massive crime, welfare dependancy and dislocation problems for the nations that do it. That lesson is crystal clear from around the world.
The Left try to use PC as a way of shielding the public debate from these basic facts. It’s a cruel con-job on the folks without political power and access to decision-making.The Left live in nice leafy, gentrified suburbs where newly-arrived migrants from Third World countries can’t afford to live. Then these migrants are duck-shoved out to poorer suburbs, making them other people’s problems.
While the Left then virtue-signals about how “compassionate” they are. That’s how the loaded immigration debate works and, for too long, Australia has fallen for it.
Short answer? Because somewhere out there, there’s a little rich kid arts student with a black mask in his wardrobe who wants to smash your head in with an iron bar, and he still thinks he’s fighting it.
If you’ve been paying attention to the extreme left, you may have noticed their preoccupation with the events of 1930s Spain. Especially amongst the black-clad Anarchist thugs both here in Australia and around the world, the symbols and slogans of the conflict are still regularly used in the weirdest of contexts.

The Daily Mail online recently published a series of photographs taken in Australia in the late 1800s and ‘1900s’ they called ‘shocking’, ‘haunting’, and ‘chilling’. Australia Day is approaching so there are no prizes for guessing the subject of the photos. They are photos of chained Aboriginals in what look like work gangs. They are indeed photos of miserable penal groups that shock. They are all the more shocking without any context of time and place. They are recycled regularly to show what a bad lot (white) Australians are. Reinforcing the prejudices of some Daily Mail readers is also a motivation.
In their haste to smear and blacken (white) Australians, the editors of The Daily Mail did not even bother to check the time framework. All the photos were taken in the late 1800s. It is easy to see. It’s just as easy to see that none are of Australian conditions in the late 1900s. This is the haste of bigotry. The Daily Mail editors obviously don’t know that many billions of dollars have been spent over the last forty years to improve the lot of Aboriginals. Governments have bent of backwards to appease the loudest voices. And the ignorant sanctimonious editors of The Daily Mail even quote a UN document about rights to us. There is, however, a larger issue here than the smearing of white Australians.
The series of photos and the sanctimonious sensationalised commentary take their place in an unrelenting ideological and political campaign against white people and European Civilisation. If Australians (most of us are white) want a comprehensive account of the rising anti-white racism, I strongly recommend one reads Douglas Murray’s THE STRANGE DEATH OF EUROPE. It applies as much to Australia as to Europe. Indeed, Australia gets a big mention. The book will explain so much of prevailing political attitudes among leftist political parties and groups.
As for the photos, context and time are everything. One might investigate the punishment meted out to reoffending convicts in colonial Australia. On Australia Day, Australians should have a look around and see what we have achieved since 26 Jan 1788, and then compare that with the vision on our television of events in the Middle East and Africa.
What contribution did criticism by ‘friends’ make to the political assassination of Tony Abbott? Surely friends’ criticism had to be sound and constructive, and not a help to those treacherous party subversives who wanted Abbott gone no matter what.
Andrew Bolt opened the first program of the 2015 ‘Bolt Report’ with an interview with Prime Minister Tony Abbott. He prefaced his interview by saying the Tony Abbott was his friend and he regretted having criticised him for breaking promises and awarding a knighthood to Prince Philip. The Prime Minister smiled weakly giving the impression he had doubts about Bolt’s kind of friendship. Who could blame him? For no sooner had Bolt finished his declaration of friendship than he began to pound the prime minister all over again for just those misdemeanours – breaking promises and awarding a knighthood to Prince Philip. But there was a difference this time. Continue reading “Recalling criticisms of Prime Minister Tony Abbott”
Media commentators in Australia who describe themselves as conservative or are described by others as conservative joined the media frenzy in response to Tony Abbott’s awarding a knighthood to Prince Philip. In the main, the reasons for their outrage and ferocious criticism of Abbott were the same as those of the leftist media whom they generally execrate. How could this be?
Their reasons were a sufficient explanation, they appeared to imply. Abbott was returning to the colonial past; the awards were anachronistic; Abbot was fatally enamoured of the Royal Family and the monarchy; the award was totally inappropriate on Australia Day; it was an insult to Australia and Australians; and so it went on in that vein.
