But that Britishness is buried rather deep.  The day after Christmas in the United Kingdom is Boxing Day, a sort of Black Friday in this country.  It’s a nightmare to navigate the crowded streets, and the shops are packed solid.

It was precisely this day that the British Tube employees – workers of the British subway system – chose to strike for 24 hours.  This meant that everyone was now obliged to use taxis, which were charging double rates, or take a bus – and the traffic was snarled more horribly than Matthew Pocket’s hair.  What were these employees striking for?  Triple pay on holidays – and an offset day to make up for having to work on Boxing Day.  They were already slated to make double pay.

In any rational society, the British government would fire these ne’er-do-wells forthwith and hire scabs to replace them.  But Britain’s post-WWII bargain with the devil has been the same as the rest of the West’s: go Marxist and remove your imperial aggression by doing so.  Capitalism, in the Marxist view, leads to imperialism; breed the capitalism out, and so too will the imperialism fade into history.  And so Britain has castrated itself, both economically and socially.

But deep in the British soul, there stirs the echo of heroism: the echo of Churchill and Henry V, the echo of Elizabeth I and Cromwell. As time passes, that echo will grow ever louder.  The question is whether the echo will restore Britain’s fortitude before it descends into a self-imposed dark night of final decline.

    Now, no less a personage than Prime Minister David Cameron has already admitted that the integration of Muslims into British society has failed dramatically.

    Uhm….can anyone point to any country in the entire world where mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage has actually not failed dramatically? Indeed, Muslims never migrate to the West or anywhere else for that matter for the purpose of assimilating and integrating, but instead to eventually subjugate and dominate via the eventual imposition of Sharia for the purpose of stealth demographic conquest to make Islam supreme. If anyone is interested in seeing the future of the UK, then they should take a look at what is happening today inside Nigeria, as Nigeria is in the final stages of stealth demographic conquest.

    In fact, mass Muslim immigration to the West for the purpose of stealth demographic conquest to make Islam supreme is the most prevalent form of non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad employed by the Islamic world against the West today. Yet, it manifests completely undetected, unacknowledged, and unopposed because, per the dictates of PC multiculturalism, jihad, which can be both violent and non-violent, is always conflated and morally equated with terrorism, which as it name implies can only be violent. Hence, since non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad, in this case stealth demographic conquest, is non-violent by design, it isn't construed as being terrorism, and if it isn't construed as being terrorism, then thanks to PC multiculturalism it isn't opposed.

    Unfortunately, per the dictates of PC multiculturalism, almost everyone has been conditioned to fear only violent jihad, which they always conflate and morally equate as being terrorism, at the same time they erroneously believe the millions of non-violent stealth and deceptive jihadists living amongst them are peaceful and moderate Muslims. I hate to rain on their PC multicultural parade, but jihad and terrorism are really two very separate and mutually exclusive manifestations and indeed two entirely different and very distinct things altogether. As jihad can be both violent and non-violent, while terrorism, on the other hand, is always only violent, and when jihad gets conflated and morally equated with terrorism, it enables all the many non-violent varieties of stealth and deceptive jihad to occur completely below the radar of scrutiny and totally unopposed. It also causes people to misconstrue what are really non-violent stealth and deceptive jihadists as being peaceful and moderate Muslims as well.

    Perhaps all this might be a charming byproduct of multiculturalism if it weren’t for the fact that so much of the Islamic population of Great Britain is radicalized.

    If the writer of this article believes that all those MAINSTREAM ORTHODOX MUSLIM immigrants living in Britain have been radicalized, then I have a bridge I need to sell him. Indeed, at the same time he denounces PC multiculturalism, it couldn't be anymore obvious that he is totally blinded by PC multiculturalism. In other words, he is a byproduct of PC multiculturalism.

    That radicalization is not difficult to spot.

    Just like the writer's blindness via PC multiculturalism is also not difficult to spot.

      "…they should take a look at what is happening today inside Nigeria, as Nigeria is in the final stages of stealth demographic conquest."

      A similar process has already taken place in the Ivory Coast, aided and abetted by the French.

      • ObamaYoMoma

        You are absolutely correct, the non-Muslim Christians and animists were rendered into harsh and degrading dhimmitude last spring in Cote D'Ivoire. Thanks to legal and illegal mass Muslim immigration.

    • Western Canadian

      You really are a loon when it comes to jihad/terrorism. Totally nuts. You do NOT describe jihad properly when you claim it is NOT known to be both violent and (initially) non-violent, and you ignore those who are risking their lives to oppose it in both forms. Rather pathetic on your part. You actually are doing the jihadiis a favour by ranting on as you do.

      • ObamaYoMoma

        Okay you mentally deficient Canadian flake, why don't you school me and explain what is jihad. Moreover, your objections don't make any sense, which indicates to me that you are a loon.

        • Western Canadian

          My my, do you kiss your mother with that mouth? And probably french her every chance you get.

          Jihad can take many forms, from the stealth to the ultra violent, with a heavy emphasis on terror. In fact, terror is its part of its purpose. My source?? Mo himself. And if there were no books such as ‘stop the islamization of america’ making you look like a fool with your claim that no one but you is aware of stealth jihad….. And you call others metally deficient? The diagnosis of you as a narcisic toad, is very likely valid. It’s either that or you are 12-15 years old, mildly bright (but not nearly as much as you think), and having fun trying to play with the big kids. And making yourself look the fool while doing so.

          • ObamaYoMoma

            Just like I thought…you are a Canadian flake that has been inculcated cradle to grave like all Canadians to believe that PC multiculturalism is a certainty and you are also a product of the severely deficient Canadian education system. Thus, you don't have a clue because first you don't understand what jihad is and then on top of it, per the dictates of PC multiculturalism, you always conflate jihad, which can be both violent and non-violent, as being terrorism, which can only be violent. Finally, if you are a thin skinned crybaby who can't take my sarcastic responses to your sarcastic posts, then I suggest you learn to stop being sarcastic.

            Nevertheless, since non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad isn't violent, in your unhinged mind, it isn't construed as being terrorism, and if it isn't construed as being terrorism, then per the dictates of PC multiculturalism it isn't opposed, and never mind the fact that non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad, such as mass Muslim immigration to the West, Asia, and Africa for the purpose of stealth demographic conquest, relative to violent jihad is employed today astronomically far more prevalently.

            In addition, per the sixth and most important pillar of Islam, ALL MAINSTREAM ORTHODOX MUSLIMS ON EARTH are jihadists. No exceptions. A tiny minority of them are violent jihadists, while the vast overwhelming majority of them are stealth and deceptive jihadists, and the few of them that are not jihadists are not Muslims at all, but instead blasphemous apostates that per the texts and tenets of Islam must be executed.

            Further, the largest proponent faction of violent jihad, which is AQ, has been waging a violent jihad against the largest proponent faction of non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad – the Saudis and the Gulf States – since the mid 90s. As the proponent faction of non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad, which is astronomically far larger, believes that violent jihad is exceedingly counterproductive and harmful because it invites wars against Muslims and focuses unwanted scrutiny and attention on Islam.

            Indeed, both factions agree 100 percent on the same exact goal to make Islam supreme. However, they violently disagree when it comes to the strategy and the tactics to be employed. The violent jihad faction believes in force and violence, and the non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad faction believes in the deliberate strategy of stealth demographic conquest, and they believe in making use of violent jihad only after the percentage of Muslims in the targeted populations becomes sufficiently large enough. Then and only then will violent jihad be increasingly employed as the percentage of Muslims continues to steadily increase to hasten up the process of stealth demographic conquest by causing non-Muslim unbelievers to flee.

            The truth is Muslims never ever migrate to the West or anywhere else for that matter to assimilate and integrate. Instead, they migrate to eventually subjugate and dominate via the eventual imposition of Sharia for the purpose of stealth demographic conquest to make Islam supreme.

            In fact, in country after country and anywhere and everywhere mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage is occurring in the world today, just like clockwork the vast overwhelming majority of Muslim immigrants flat out refuse to assimilate and integrate and instead form segregated Muslim only enclaves that in time eventually morph into Muslim no-go zones ruled by Sharia as fifth columns and in direct contravention to the laws of the states in which they reside.

            As a matter of fact, the government of France a few years ago counted 758 Muslim no-go zones in France alone, and never mind the fact that Europe is literally sprinkled with thousands of Muslim no-go zones today, and this process although new relative to Europe is now occurring today throughout North America, and the reason it isn't opposed is because, per the dictates of PC multiculturalism, if it isn't violent, then it isn't construed as being terrorism, and if it isn't construed as being terrorism, then it isn't opposed. In fact, can you point to a single non-Muslim country anywhere in the world where mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage has been occurring for decades where mass Muslim immigration didn't turn into an unmitigated disaster?

            Indeed, Cote D'Ivoire (The Ivory Coast) in Africa was just officially conquered and rendered into the Dar al Islam last year after many years of legal and illegal mass Muslim immigration for the purpose of stealth demographic conquest. Nigeria today is in the final stages of stealth demographic conquest as the Muslims are continually driving the non-Muslim unbelievers south. It's only a matter of a short time before the entire country of Nigeria will be rendered into the Dar al Islam similar to Cote D'Ivoire and the non-Muslim unbelievers rendered into harsh and degrading dhimmitude at the same time.

            Hence, since you are a complete neophyte, a mentally incompetent flake, and have been rendered completely blinded by PC multiculturalism thanks to your cradle to grave Canadian indoctrination, you are not worthy of my time, as this is my last response to you. Have a nice life freezing your a$$ off in the frozen Canadian north.

          • Western Canadian

            ‘Just like you thought’?? No, you pitiable moron, you didn’t think, and probably are not capable of it. Product of pc?? No, I reject pc as much as I do your pathetic and ignorant rants.

            Let’s face it skippy, you are a moron. Narcissist? Very much so. Sickeningly ignorant?? Very much so, Given to screaming, juvenile rants and name-calling? Beyond any shadow of a doubt. Capable of a rational discourse or offering informed opinion? Not if your pathetic life depended on it. As an example, unlike yourself, i am much to well informed to assume jihad must be or is always violent. You are the only dolt on this board, and also the only dolt that even goes there…..

            As for the canadian ed system, i am a product of it, in a superior form, a number of years ago. And canada currently kicks your countries ass for results in most subjects, in international tests.

            You are the one who knows nothing about jihad, i go to the sub-animal mo for my definition of it. You make one up out of thin air. And are so stupid you think it makes you clever.
            Your repetition of you delusional definition of jihad, is rather funny, and very revealing. It reveals your mind is actually rather weak, as well as ill informed. Merely obsessive.

            My first post on your asinine distortion of jihad, was absolutely lacking in sarcasm. If you were not so weak and pathetic, i would give you a sample of real sarcasm….. but since you are the thin-skinned crybaby, you wouldn’t survive it.

            As for your personal spin on who back non-violent as opposed to violent jihad…. the saudis back both, but don’t let the real world intrude on your pathetic delusion.

            Your pitiable next paragraph, again demonstrates your weak and obsessive mind. Very funny, as you add to your already firm status as a dolt.

            The rest of your post is frankly off topic, but since you cannot formulate an argument but merely rant, that is to be expected. It is the tact taken by weak minds when they are challenged, and those weak minds are found on the hard left. Or in the pitiable skulls of narcissism victims everywhere.

            Your final paragraph, you really go to town, and demonstrate, yet again, your sickeningly juvenile and screaming, shrieking ranting, and blow your own foot off. By the way, canada is not a frozen north, you ignorant moron.

            One of the sadder by-products of the extremely low current/amperage which is all that is needed for computer keyboards, is that a drooling failure doesn’t short out theirs, and remove themselves from the gene pool (shallow end).

    OnamaYoMoma,
    Well said. When Immigrantcattle to the USA en masse they did so to become Americans. In my family 4 foreign languages are represented. Everyone in my family is patriotic and speak English. There are Islamic radicals in the UK that are pushing for Sharia governed areas. They have a problem.

  • Rev. Roy Trepanier

    In February 2011, Cameron stated,
    "Under the doctrine of state multiculturalism, we have encouraged different cultures to live separate lives, apart from each other and the mainstream. We have failed to provide a vision of society to which they feel they want to belong. We have even tolerated these segregated communities behaving in ways that run counter to our values."
    Cameron has "knowingly or unknowingly" omitted the true cause of "multicultural failure"..Islam's absolute refusal to integrate into British (or any other) society.That is the "nature of the beast" and declaritive of their desperate need to subjugate and conquer. Mr. Cameron has, in essence, self-flagelated the British (Gov. and people) for being at fault and as long as this sad, suicidal self-denegration continues, the "beast" will grow and multiply. Until, that is, the King of King's returns to set things right. The "beast-conquering King" is soon to re-appear on planet Earth, and one would be wise to make sure that they are on the right side in the coming "final" conflict. His name is Jeshua !!!

    England rolled out the red carpet for the Trojan Horse ……( open immigration)….and now they moan in regret. England, like other European nations went for the PC multicult policies and are now showing their sorrow and dismay. The only thing that will work is mass deportation, but the clueless liberals will object to that.

    • Raymond in DC

      The US has rolled out its own red carpet to Muslim immigration. A plurality of those granted asylum or accepted as immigrants in recent years are Muslims. We've effectively ceded to the UN the decision on those accepted as "refugees", and most of those are Muslims.

    • ziontruth

      "England rolled out the red carpet for the Trojan Horse ……( open immigration)….and now they moan in regret."

      None of the nations in question have ever done such a thing. The elites—media chatterati and political opportunists, in short people who think they know better than the plebes—have foisted multiculturalism upon an unwilling populace. What has happened is treason on a nation-wide scale.

      "The only thing that will work is mass deportation, but the clueless liberals will object to that."

      Ditto that. With the Marxists the problem begins, and with the criminalization of their ideology the problem will be solved. If you can get Marxism outlawed, all the rest will be a piece of cake.

      • Waldemar

        Liberals are NOT clueless, am sorry to say. They love Islam as their natural ally in the war on freedom. That's all.

    • Kaffir_Not_Dhimmi

      No we didn't, the Labour Party did that on our behalf without consulting us, the same party which banned schoolchildren from playing conkers in schools in case they got hurt, competitve sports in schools to spare children the pain and humiliation of losing and published booklets on how to use pedestrian road crossings during their hyperinflation of the bureaucratic ranks of the National Health Service. There are plenty of Brits ready to burn the nests infested by the Islamic cuckoo, and will write the name of Tony Blair on the roll of infamy next to Neville Chamberlain in future history books.

    Muslims aren’t in (formerly) Gt. Britain to enjoy the fruits of democracy, but to conquer and enslave a free people. Islam is dedicated to destroying western civilization and aren’t particular about how to accomplish this destruction. But most muslims are cowards. While fond of slaughtering defenseless people, they quickly hide behind their women and children when confronted by the resistance (or the opportunity to hold a job) to their mendacity. It’s time to shine a light on these roaches and watch them cringe and scatter.

  • LindaRivera

    I'm afraid I don't share Ben Shapiro's optimism for Britain. I see only a country that has been totally conquered by Islam at the invitation of Britain's leaders. British leaders who bow down to Islam. Who have imported massive numbers of Muslims into little Britain, Muslims who will, by their sheer numbers alone, rule Britain as masters over British infidels.

    Polygamy is against the law in Britain as it is in other Western countries, and punished by 7 years in jail. However, if you are Muslim you are REWARDED for breaking the law. Muslim males are given free welfare money and free housing for their harem of multiple wives and large numbers of children. If non-Muslims want the special rights and privileges enjoyed by Muslims, they MUST CONVERT to Islam.

    • Ron Carnine

      I agree with your evaluation. In WWII, the British fought tooth and toenail to keep the Nazi's from invading her shores and won, but at a great cost. But this time around the enemy has already accomplished the invasion before the war reached a recognizable zenith. That is the the great difference between now and then. I'm afraid the day is not far away (if it hasn't already come) when the United States can no longer count on her. What a shame. I just hope America will watch and draw the right conclusion before it is too late to stop it here.

    "Great" Britain no more, for, hath not God said, to Abraham (Isaac, and Jacob), "And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee…"Gen12:3KJV1611. Going back to the source is helpful. Explains a lot of things.
    As to the future of Islam, Isaiah 17, Psalm 83, Ezek 35-6, and Ezek 38 shed light on that. Kicking against the truth, doesn't change the truth.

They died for our freedom – a freedom which Western leaders no longer guard. With many no-go Muslim areas in the UK, Europe, Israel and India where it is too dangerous for non-Muslims to enter – we are neither safe or free.

    Violent Immigrants to the Free World-Their Goal is Conquest
    Savage Muslim mobs – immigrants welcomed into our countries call for the murder of innocents:

    "UK, you will pay"

    "Slay those who insult Islam"
    "Europe, you will pay, your 9/11 is on its way!"

    Above article: "the wax doll for Albert Einstein. crowded around the figure, stood five young Muslims – While other guests stood next to the model and smiled, or put an arm around it, these Muslim worthies stood next to the wax model – and put their hands around its throat, simulating strangling it.

    Above article: "the wax statue of Adolf Hitler​. Britons and Americans tried to choke the figure, or pointed their fingers at it in imaginary guns, or yelled at it. These young Muslims happily stood next to it, and took smiling photographs with it."

    It is a dark day for all of innocent humanity when the number of Muslims in Europe and Britain is so enormous, that Muslims feel complete confidence and freedom to openly display their MURDEROUS hate for Jewish infidel non-Muslims. And Muslims openly display their LOVE and ADMIRATION for vile G-D HATER, mass murderer, Hitler who barbarically murdered six million Jews and millions more non-Jews.

    Many brave heroes fought and died so that we could live in freedom and safety from power-hungry, murderous haters, yet British and European leaders have invited huge numbers of Muslims into their countries who ADORE Hitler. Just what kind of suffering, horror and terror does the future hold for Europe and Britain? And as goes Britain and Europe, so does America, Canada, Australia, and other Western countries.

    Arm yourselves – quietly. The governments may turn but you don't have too. From Nov to Dec 2011 we set a new record in America – for the purchase of weapons and ammunition. The day the vote brings Islamic rule is the day I become a criminal by choice. If I had a way to arm (er … I mean support) the Christians in Nigeria (and elsewhere) that wanted to fight for their freedom from Islamic tyranny; I'd support it. Screw these PC cowards we have elected. The Copts in Egypt understand their position. What did the US government do to protect Christians in Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Sudan, etc. – NOTHING. We allow more Muslims to immigrate as refugees than Christians. How Screwed up is that?

  • WilliamJamesWard

    Why would the European leaders invite Muslim immigration enmasse, why? Islamist
    money in large amounts as bribes, the thought of cheap labor and leftist mental
    instability in the government. The mistake while large is growing critical and will
    hit unmanageable crises as the indiginous European populations wake up to the
    fact that they do not recognize their own nation, are aliens in their own homes
    and are subjected to increasing indignity while out of work and their government
    that has been supporting the colonizers fails to provide for their socialist state.

      Funny that, the Muslims apply the same thoughts to your faith, and you could be speaking the words of a Muslim if you substituted "Jesus" for "Muhammad" and "Allah". By giving credibility to the Christian fairytale, you're giving credibility to the Islamic one too.

  • Ellman

    "The question is whether the echo will restore Britain’s fortitude before it descends into a self-imposed dark night of final decline." At some point the Roman Empire attained a 'critical mass' which made the explosion that followed inevitable and the results irreversible. Not just GB but the entire West has either achieved critical mass or soon will. Rome always had many enemies but it subdued most of them. The one enemy they could not subdue was its own citizens and politicians. The invasion of the barbarians may make a return visit.
