The left is at war with Western civilization. Once one realizes that, the pieces fit together very well. This conflict escalated in America during the Obama administration. Mr. Obama’s loyalties to our nation were rightly questioned when viewed through the lens of his immigration policies. And that’s just for starters. What he claims America stands for is nothing less that a twisting of the truth – a pack of lies to suit his liberal agenda and cohorts.
This war is not restricted to the United States. We are just more aware of it here. Yet, you can return to the origins of much of our Western traditions and find the same assaults in progress. These would include open immigration by those hostile to the West. Since Christianity was an enormous influence in the development of Western culture, it has come under especially vicious attacks.
The left’s efforts to wipe Christianity from the face of Europe continue with vigor. When a French town set up a Nativity scene at city hall, leftists naturally issued a demand that the mayor remove such an offensive display. The mayor, however, is not one to be intimidated. His reply was, “We will not yield…!”
“French Mayor Robert Ménard, who has been nicknamed the “populist” mayor because of his determination to represent the people, has a history of offending liberals in the most satisfyingly politically-incorrect ways. Making a career out of defying the socialistic left and combatting Islam’s migratory conquest of Europe, Ménard continues to gain international support for his proactive conservative policies.
“French newspaper L’Express reports that after overly-sensitive liberals demanded the city hall Nativity scene be removed for being offensive to minority cultures, Mayor Ménard used their own argument against them to protect the display, firmly replying, ‘We will never yield on our culture!’”
The mayor’s argument was as brilliant as it was simple. If minority cultures’ rights are to be respected, so should those of the majority. And we know of whom the mayor and his opponents on the left are speaking. If Muslims are offended by Christmas displays, that’s too bad. The faith that inspires these displays was present in France for centuries before Islam was even created. There is no justification for the eradication of Christian traditions.
Mayor Ménard makes a lot of sense. And his moral courage is an inspiration.
“‘They will try to ban our #crèche (Nativity) of 2017, 2018 and up to 2030. We will never yield on our culture!’ he posted on Twitter.
“‘I am respectful of secularism, but an open, tolerant secularism that does not consist in chasing down what we are and denying our history,’ he added to his previous sentiment in a column for his former magazine Boulevard Voltaire.”
It is a highly politically-incorrect statement to make, but it is true. The Christian faith is at the foundation of much of Western culture and civilization. As Islam seeks to spread, it must defeat Christianity to succeed. Western culture can be seen by Muslims as a proxy for the Christian faith, and thus becomes the focus of their attacks. The West must turn its back on its traditions to satisfy Islamic imperatives.
Those in the West who wish our culture to survive must have the courage and determination to do no less than Mayor Ménard. His is an example well worth emulating in this epic battle of civilizations and cultures.
