Terrorists Exploiting Britain

John Bennett, Newsmax, October 16, 2014

With so much information at our fingertips, how is it that so much political commentary can be so incomplete? Take this recent Telegraph article, which asks “How Britain became the Yemen of the West.”

The article concerns itself with those–few–British people who export terrorism. The article is, naturally, not concerned with the people who export the principles of the Magna Carta, the Enlightenment, or the Church of England. So, in an article setting out to explore “How Britain became the Yemen of the West,” one might expect a discussion of immigration.

Large numbers of Muslims would not likely have spontaneously appeared in England, were it not for mass immigration. The exportation of militant Islam from England depends, to some degree, on the importation into England of devotees of the Religion of Peace. Yet, not a single word in the Telegraph article mentioned immigration or demographic change.

It’s not as if the Telegraph is unaware of the immigration debate. In fact, just a few days later, a different Telegraph writer explored this notable topic, “Tory MP claims Enoch Powell’s ‘Rivers of Blood’ speech was right.” A respected member of Parliament expressed the view–shared by countless commentators and political figures–that the late British politician Enoch Powell was correct to warn of the problems associated with mass immigration.

Powell’s 1968 speech is widely known as the most controversial speech in modern British history. Now dubbed the “Rivers of Blood” speech, Powell warned of the unrest that would occur if large numbers of foreign-born people who rejected British culture were admitted to that nation. Powell said of England, “We must be mad, literally mad, as a nation to be permitting the annual inflow of some 50,000 dependents, who are for the most part the material of the future growth of the immigrant-descended population. It is like watching a nation busily engaged in heaping up its own funeral pyre . . . As I look ahead, I am filled with foreboding; like the Roman, I seem to see ‘the River Tiber foaming with much blood.’”


Powell’s speech, and the issues it raised, has been a source of endless fascination and debate in England. An entire 2008 BBC documentary was devoted to the speech and its legacy.

The immigration debate in England has intensified in recent decades, for most of the reasons Powell foretold. The 7/7 bombings, widespread Shariah indoctrination in schools, and the slaying of Lee Rigby give credence to concerns about “Londinistan.”

Now, England is reeling from revelations that Muslim rape gangs specifically targeted at least 1,400 white teenage girls; Pakistani men groomed and trafficked the girls while politically correct local officials refused to address what they long ago knew to be a major problem.


With this entire backdrop as part of an ongoing immigration debate, comes the question of “How Britain became the Yemen of the West,” in the recent Telegraph article. The Telegraph reporter who scrupulously avoided the issue of immigration did wrap up on this politically correct note, “The only way to defeat a bad idea is with a better idea.” The problem with this pleasantry is that bad ideas can be central to a group’s sense of meaning and belonging.

You can’t defeat an idea without confronting a people.

Those who pretend to be concerned about the consequences of ideas must acknowledge that flesh, blood, and culture are ultimately the vessel for ideas. Hence the connection between immigration and bad ideas–which should be hard to miss.

  • Terrorists would not be able to exploit Britain if Britain pre-terrorists was not that gullible to begin with.

    Sam Francis could have written this. There is no such thing as the “power of ideas,” there is only the will to power and the ideas that serve such people. Bad ideas and bad systems didn’t just materialize out of the woodwork and bubble up from the soil; bad people and bad groups established them and develop them. Therefore, those that say that our battle must be personal against the bad actors and bad groups are correct.

    Trying to crack down on extremist preachers will turn Britain into (even more of) a police state. Politicians will say they are trying to silence terrorism supporters but will in reality clamp down on all views regarded as outside the political mainstream. That’s why I’m in favour of allowing people like Anjm Choudary voice their views regardless of the risk.

    All the strong blood in England was lost in WWII leaving eunuchs to commit cultural suicide.

      I wouldn’t say that just yet. Remember the Empire lost 800,000 in the first war compared to the 200,000 in the second war. Still there is a few good men out there somewhere. I hope so anyway.

        Do not lose faith. It is essential.

        You’re out there. I am too. There are more.

    Of course an honest discussion of the negative effects of immigration on the UK can not be made, it is illegal. Free speech is not allowed in the UK. Back during the olympics a number of young people were arrested for tweeting stupid comments. Then their is Emma Watson. And now in Britain we have this: “A Merseyside man jailed for posting an anti-Semitic tweet to MP Luciana Berger used social media to spread pro-Nazi and anti-Jewish messages. Twenty-one-year-old Garron Helm’s Twitter account is filled with white supremacist messages which include “anti-racist is code for anti-white”.” Regardless of what you may think of this young man’s remarks the fact that he was arrested and imprisoned for four weeks for a hate crime shows you that there is no freedom in the UK.

  • Britain should have fought with Hitler against Stalin and Communism. Imagine what a pristine place the West would be like today. Colonialism would still be going strong. Man would be on Mars. Most diseases cured. The cost to the West of the bankster inspired world wars has been enormous, but hidden.

      Yes! Yes! and Yes!!

      Woodrow Wilson should have kept us out of WW1..

      He was the primordial messianic democratic totalitarian, in my opinion. Meddling and moralsome.

      Who knows, but how bad could a Central Powers victory have been, in retrospect? No Hitler, and I have a hard time believing they would not have intervened in the Russian Revolution to a very different result.

      WW1 was where it really went wrong, and I think it went wrong because we abandoned isolationism and meddled where we should not have.

        And your opinion is based on,….. what? Wilson resisted going to war as long as possible. He was against it and campaigned as opposed. He was compelled by public and Congressional outcry TWO years AFTER the sinking of the Lusitania when the Zimmerman Telegram revealed the German plans to involve/encourage/supply Mexico in a war against the U.S. After Wilson signed the declaration of war against Germany he laid his head down on his presidential desk and cried “like a baby.” Read actual history. Making things up is what too many white advocates do. There is no need to and we only make ourselves look like obvious liars and idiots to everyone else (including intelligent and educated whites).

    Under Elizabeth I, England became a nation state. One that would play a dominating role in European and World affairs, militarily, politically, economically, and culturally.

    Under Elizabeth II, England has become a territory for Liberal social experimentation and Third World colonization.

    • Peter Connor

      Gone baby gone.

    • Whiteplight sees the Emperor N

      Elizabeth ll never had too much political power. I think she fears speaking her mind. But recently she and the entire court laughed out loud at some Africans when they did a very ridiculous tribal dance in the palace during a visit, which surprised me with the open display of scorn for ANYTHING black or African. I wonder what the next king will be like?

  • Peter Connor

    England’s apparent motto is “3d world in less than 30 years”. I think they can do it in 20.

    • Whiteplight sees the Emperor N

      And it’s a neck and neck race, with the U.S. nipping at Britain’s browning methods as they round the turn to the finish. And the loser is, is, is,…….

      Finish the sentence with the appropriate word(s).

      • Rhialto

        Sweden has already crossed the finished line.

      • Peter Connor

        And Denmark is coming up fast on the outside….

  • KenelmDigby

    Yes. If the British government actually heeded Powell’s prophecy way back in 1968, then so much bloodshed, hatred and economic decline could have been halted by the mere stroke of a bureaucratic pen. But they were lickspittle disgusting little cowards then, and they are lickspittle disgusting little cowards now.

    You can’t defeat an idea without confronting a people.

    It’s coming though…..

  • Tom_in_Miami

    We have been so indoctrinated in “acceptance” of foreigners that it may be too late to turn back the tide. The people of England can see their country disintegrating before their very eyes but they can’t muster the pride and energy to fight back. Not so different from the US. We are getting more and more ripe for revolution every day. Now where is the leader who will unite us?

  • Preparation H-Bomb

    Terrorists are exploiting America as well; we have home-grown ISIS idiots as well as the ignorami populating the black ghettos in places like Ferguson AND St. Louis, MO. Of course, there’s also the ones in the White House and in various positions of power, appointed by the goons in the WH….
