Has the West the Will to Survive? by Patrick Buchanan

There is a difference between civilization and savagery, whatever civilization’s flaws and savagery’s virtues. There is nothing virtuous about a civilization that will not defend itself, and that includes defending itself from overrun by people who either despise or have no appreciation of the that civilization. From Patrick Buchanan at buchanan.org:

“If you’re … pathetically weak, the country is going to be overrun with millions of people, and if you’re strong, then you don’t have any heart, that’s a tough dilemma. … I’d rather be strong.”

So said President Donald Trump, on issuing his order halting the separation of children from parents caught breaking into the country. Trump’s enemies are celebrating a victory. Yet the issue remains.

Under U.S. law, teenagers and tots cannot be detained for more than 20 days and must be held in the least-restrictive facilities. But if the children cannot be separated from the parents as they await trial, both will have to be released to keep families together.

We are back to “catch and release.”

When that welcome news hits Central America, the migrant stream moving north will become a river that never ceases to flow.

The questions America and the West face might thus be framed:

Is there a liberal, progressive, Christian way to seal a 2,000-mile border, halt millions of migrants from crossing it illegally, and send intruders back whence they came? Or does the preservation of Western nations and peoples require measures from which liberal societies today reflexively recoil?

Does the survival of the West as a civilization require a ruthlessness the West no longer possess?

Consider what our fathers did to build this country.

The English settlers brought in 600,000 slaves, ethnically cleansed the Indians, joined their cousins in a war to expel the French, then revolted and threw out those cousins to claim all the land to the Mississippi for ourselves.

Jefferson grabbed the vast Louisiana Territory for $15 million from Napoleon, who had no right to sell it. Andrew Jackson drove the Spanish out of Florida, sent the Cherokee packing on the Trail of Tears, and told a dissenting Chief Justice John Marshall where he could go.

Sam Houston tore Texas away from Mexico. “Jimmy” Polk took the Southwest and California in a war Ulysses Grant called “the most unjust ever fought.” When the South declared independence, Lincoln sent a million-man army to march them back in a war that cost 600,000 lives.

William McKinley sent armies and warships to seize Puerto Rico, Hawaii, Guam and the Philippines. The indigenous peoples were not consulted. “God told me to take the Philippines,” said McKinley.

  2. The issue is very likely to be forced upon the America which the neo-bolsheviks whish to genocide. If not this there are other crisis as a means they will employ as an instrument of destroying America. At some point it will not matter as it becomes a matter of survival where our guns will decide the issue.
    It is critical if not existential at this stage for the one worlders to throw everything at the wall in the intent something sticks that is capable of causing America to collapse.
    We are blessed with the fact that 65 million plus the millions of dirt people who abstained from participating in the greatest grass roots color revolution in history exist. The zietgeist if you will. Which elevated Trump as the Captain of that plurality. A remarkable series of events which indicates there under exists the will to win in the Christian Western ideal. Aka the fat lady isn’t even warming up.
    Of course the 5th colomn media has resorted to fully fabricating whatever meme or narrative necessary to preserve the illusion the West no longer exists. That’s to be expected, and really how is that different than any other day over the last 100 or so years?
    We are still here. At some stage the violent physical stage of genocide has to be waged, that we have guns, lots of guns, controls the agenda of the one worlders in more ways than most of us appreciate. If anything, it is our guns that define the course of history.
    In the end, it all comes down to the greatest defining element, the combat rifle, in the hands of the dirt people who refuse to bend a knee to tyrants. This has always been the most important equation of political science, and the ultimate of real politik.
    No joke, its a Mexican standoff, the ultimate shark the neo-bolsheviks must jump at some point, they can no avoid its inevitability. And neither can us dirt people.
    Its best to remember it is always and no others purview the dirt people are who have ever effected positive change in this world.
