The March of the Body Snatchers

The March of the Body Snatchers

Takuan Seiyo, Brussels Journal. 28.10.2008

European Commissioners opine that “Immigration Is Moral Necessity” and “Islam Is Welcome.” A French President predicts that “Arabic Is the Language of the Future.” A Moroccan becomes Mayor of Rotterdam. Europeans who wish to assert their ethnic identity and interests versus those of aliens are roughed up.

In the United States -- a country that has ruined itself through its own naïveté about human nature, about the world and about itself, the presidential election is being contested between a right-liberal candidate of the Stupid Party and a left-liberal candidate of the Evil Party. The latter’s position’s is that America’s wealth should be redistributed to the Afro-American “community” so that the country can have its salvation. He may have rephrased this idea in more unctuous words as his political shrewdness was increasing over the years, but essentially this is still the intention.

Yet, Mr. Obama is likely to win, partly due to electoral fraud of his supporters and fawning adulation by mainstream media that disseminate news and opinions filtered to put him in the White House.

With Barack Obama in the White House and his party on the way to a supermajority in Congress, soon enough the United States will be turning from a stupid form of capitalism to a stupid form of socialism, and from a stupid form of multiculturalism to an evil one – of the Eurabian kind. It will be Sweden West, without the virtues that ethnic Swedes still possess.

Indeed, Mr. Obama would fit seamlessly as Norway’s Prime Minister or France’s Minister of Housing, give or take a language or two. He has vowed not only to transform America but also to “change the world.” Many millions in the United States and around the world are waiting for this changin’ and rearrangin’, ignorant that Lenin also promised to change his country and the world – which he did.

Keeping Lenin in mind, what are people like us to do? Here are one man’s answers, based on years of acquaintanceship with “people like us” in a dozen countries over many years. To begin with, who are “we”?

One Identity

We are the ethno-conservatives -- perhaps 60 million people in Western Europe, North America and Oceania. There are probably four times that number who are like us, but they are latent, unable at this time to cut through the fog of suppressive propaganda and inertia.

In every Western country, we are a minority encircled by brainwashed zealots discharged at a steady rate from the left-only assembly line of public education. The conveyor belt’s propulsive power is multiplied many times over by the giant dynamos of Mainstream Media (MSM) and manufactured pop culture. Our own propulsive power comes from inner conviction, books by Dead White Males, and – to steal a phrase from Abraham Lincoln – the mystic chords of memory.

We are vastly outnumbered, and have few friends among the leading elites of the Western world. But it helps to remember that 185 million ex-Russia, non-Muslim Eastern Europeans are behind us. Living under Soviet tyranny has immunized them against the terrible mental virus that has ravaged the West. They have their own problems, related to economic development, but their combined weight is on our side. We ought not to forget who came to the rescue of Vienna and Western civilization in their hopeless encirclement in 1683.

Over 1.5 billion East Asians are of the same mind as we are with regard to their own answers as to who they are. But they are busy beating us at our own game: technology, industry, innovation, commerce. And the reason they are beating us is that the same elites and their remote-controlled supporters who have brought us Eurabia and Multimerica have also brought us a stifling socialism in Europe and a dumb and self-defeating capitalism in America.

Our common denominator is not white, for our most numerous and powerful opponents are also white. Rather, it is our opposition to our disfranchisement, marginalization and impoverishment by our own ruling elites in government, media, education, culture and business.

In America, we steam for having been abandoned by our government to mayhem and rape by illegal aliens. The two parties and their presidential candidates leave us a choice only between the details of how they will legalize the 12 –18 million illegals, with all the terrorists and vicious criminals embedded among them. We have nothing left but festering rage and memorials to the victims on YouTube.

But that’s exactly the same experience relayed through innumerable news items posted by Brussels Journal about Europeans victimized and terrorized by Muslim or just plain-African immigrants who are under European governments’ sponsorship and protection while the choices left to the rightful owners of Europe are to stew in terminal frustration, read The Camp of the Saints under cover with a flashlight, or emigrate.

We are unwilling to shut up about the de facto culling of whites by black and brown (1) crime and Muslim terrorists. We are angry at the authorities’ cowardice in confronting these problems.

We are not Islamophobes, not really. Anyone who has spent time in, say, Qatar, Kazakhstan or Brunei, has experienced values and features of a society that challenge one’s notions of the superiority of Western democracy and the wisdom of the Western über-value of hedonistic freedom. It’s just that these people do not belong in the schoolrooms and supermarket aisles of Rome, London or Charlottesville, just as we don’t belong in Islamabad, Mecca, or Batna.

This is so obvious, that our ruling elites’ willful subversion of this precept is the greatest act of mass treason and insanity in the history of the world. In America’s case, it even has a farcical dimension, for here is a country that’s invading the Muslim world in the name of spreading freedom, while inviting Muslims from all over the world to live within its borders, thereby curtailing its own citizens’ freedom.

Nearly all the 9/11 Muslim terrorists had US-issued drivers licenses that enabled them to carry out all the preparations and the boarding of the planes that they would crash into the country that had welcomed them. It’s relevant too that Mr. Obama’s main accomplishment in his all-too-brief legal career was his lawsuit on behalf of ACORN to implement the Motor Voter law in Illinois in the mid-1990s. For all we know, Mohammad Atta @ Co. voted in American elections, as can millions of illegal aliens with American drivers licenses. And they vote Obama.

It’s our own ruling elites that have put us on a collision course with Muslims, by importing them to our countries and subjecting us to a gross devaluation of our social capital through constant friction with people too different for us to absorb and digest, with alien ways and mores that we cannot condone.

Moreover, it’s our own ruling elites and the suprastructures they support such as EU and UN that have put us on a collision course with Islam. Jihad is an opportunistic infection that lay dormant as long as the West was strong and self-confident. The West's own impairment of its cultural immune functions and the related importation of millions of Muslims has allowed the dormant jihadi virus to thaw and flourish.

We are not racist. Nature’s strength is in diversity, and so is Humanity’s. But we are not Nature or Humanity. We are particular people trying to live our particular lives. And for that, we need our particular ethnicity and our singular culture, as other peoples need theirs.

Our ethnicity has a universal component: we are all Europeans, or descendants of Europeans. This is implanted in our cultural, spiritual and moral makeup. The molded life-forms encircling us charge that this amounts to a fixation on whiteness, blondness, disdain for other skin colors, cultures etc. But that’s absurd.

There are undoubtedly some people sitting right now in a bierstube in Leipzig or Baton Rouge who are classical racists. But that’s a small minority. Of all the people on earth, none are as fixated on skin color, and as racist as Africans and people of African descent are. People whose main political expression is an organization called La Raza certainly are not far behind, with the rest of non-whites in the world exhibiting ethnocentric and racist attitudes far beyond those of whites.

One wanders what would be the public reaction if the university graduation thesis of the white wife of the candidate for the U.S. presidency contained the sentence, “As a member of the white community, I am obligated to this community and will utilize all of my present and future resources to benefit the white community first and foremost.” Yet these are the words of Michelle Obama, with “white” substituting for her original “black.”

European ethnicity is bound predominantly with white racial characteristics, but no one sound of mind and soul would exclude from it the part-black Pushkin and Dumas families, with all their distinguished members. Nor are there many among us who split hairs as to Aryan–Caucasian-Semite differences, what with sizeable Jewish presence in Europe going back to 400 BCE, and the Jewish imprint on Euro-Western culture ranging from Moses, Jesus, Peter and Paul to Mendelssohn, Kant, Disraeli, Einstein, von Mises and Salk.

I say to liberals who accuse me of “racist” objections to Barack Obama that if Thomas Sowell ran against John McCain, I would be voting for the black man. But ultimately, one cannot convince a life-form spewed from a conveyor belt. I think we ought to accept the charge of “racism” calmly and not run for cover. For Nature itself is “racist.”

Racial differences are real, and not only in obvious physical features but in cognitive and psychological ones as well. This is increasingly moving from the realm of behavioral and cognitive statistics to hard genomic science.

Many of the differences do not favor whites, e.g. mean IQs versus East Asians or bodily-kinesthetic and musical intelligence scores versus those of blacks. But whites score far better than blacks and browns do in areas of intelligence like Logical-Mathematical and Verbal-Linguistic that are prerequisite for well-paying jobs in the modern economy. And since liberalism starts from the premise that all people would be equal in education, status and income but for malign social structures that hold back “minorities,” liberals spare no effort to stop contrary science.

We are not xenophobes. Most of the people I know on our side of the political divide – including in Japan – like to have foreigners among them. Life in Tokyo without pastry shops operated by the best of German and French patissiers would be as dull as French or Dutch football might be without black midfielders.

It’s a question of balance. 4% -5% of foreign-origin residents seems to be the level at which the marginal utility of diversity becomes zero, with negative values beyond that. And that in a unicultural but cosmopolitan society, which seems to be the optimal model. Even then, additional restrictions ought to apply on foreigners who are certain that they alone have a direct, exclusive telephone line to God, and those who do not are enemies to be subdued.

In contrast, the ruling American elite – including Republicans – has gone mad to such an extent that “minorities” are now over 1/3 of America’s population, soon to be half. And the EU ruling elite is welcoming, nay, soliciting, an Islamic wave that will accomplish what it failed previously at Tours, Lepanto and Vienna.

Together, they have brainwashed two generations of Westerners so effectively that the majority of whites in the world, notably among the young, celebrates “diversity” -- i.e. their peoples’ and Western Civilization’s inevitable dissolution – as their core value. It is against this part of the population, and the politicians and subversive intellectuals who hold their puppet strings, that I believe we ought to define ourselves.

The Pods

Most contemporary whites are docilely or actively complicit in their own displacement, disappropriation, and disproportional share of rape, battery and murder by more savage peoples who have fewer scruples.

The epitome is the Amy Biehl Syndrome. Amy Biehl was a young poster-girl “progressive”: blonde and upper–middle class, young and pretty, Stanford graduate and Fulbright scholar on a mission to help South Africa.

One day in 1993, Amy drove to the shantytown of Gugutelu, on a do-good mission. A mob of 80 black men started throwing rocks on her car. She got out of the car and was stabbed and killed on the spot.

Four men were convicted of the murder. They spent five years in prison before applying for pardon. Amy Biehl’s parents came to the pardon hearings, in her father’s words, “as Amy came, in a spirit of committed friendship."

The Biehls not only forgave their daughter’s killers. They established a charitable foundation for the benefit of Gugutelu’s youngsters, and employed two of Amy’s killers in it. Mrs. Biehl has said about her daughter’s murderers, "It was like an adoption. These were just children who didn't have a chance to have a childhood."

The Biehls are not monsters, but loving parents who decided to upend the laws of gravity in the social and moral realms. Except for small and esoteric sects like the Indian Jains, this particular inclination appears only among whites. And, except for one, no analogy conveys this bizarre refusal to perceive reality, as though the act of suspending an idea could suspend the object of the idea. Indeed, no true leftist – whether Marxist, cultural Marxist, Christian social penitent, New York liberal or Amsterdam libertine -- will ever let reality interfere with a good theory.

That’s why I think of them as “Pods” and of us as “Nonpods.” I use these words in the context of one of the great masterpieces of American cinema, “Invasion of the Body Snatchers”, released in 1956 and directed by Don Siegel, based on a novel by Jack Finney. In it, a doctor returns to a small California town to find out that one by one, its people, most of whom he has known all his life, have been replaced by dopplegängers.

These emotionless beings animated by a single instinct – proliferation -- develop from large, foaming seedpods; in effect a biological production line for lifelike automatons, set up by evil space aliens.

One by one, real people disappear – acquaintances, friends and ultimately the protagonist’s girlfriend, until he remains the sole nonpod, encircled by human-like, giant legumes: the Body Snatchers.

Pods whose previous identities have been snatched and extinguished seem to be multiplying in our world too, and they are passionate in their hatred -- of us. Middle-aged men and women who demonstrate publicly their desire for Europe to remain European are beaten up by Antifa gangs half their age and twenty times their number. The few Americans who have the courage to demonstrate their support for the alternative to a crypto-Marxist disciple of Black Theology are heckled, beaten up, or firebombed in the Country of the Free.

Pods are deeply committed to the idea that freedom and equality are not mutually exclusive. They are the emotional children of the French Revolution and worship its motto so much that they are willing to install PC tyranny in the name of Liberté, enforce racist and gender discrimination and robbery of private property in the name of Egalité, and stop at no fraud, libel and persecution of their opponents in the name of Fraternité.

Pods view biological race and gender differences as social constructs, and therefore social group differences as an unjust inequality that must be rectified by reconstructing society. They view nation, ethnoculture, and private property as obsolete obstacles in the way of freedom, equality and fraternity of all people. Therefore, the right of anyone to immigrate anywhere precedes the right of the one suffering the destruction of his social capital by this immigration. The right of a slacker to home, sustenance, and self-esteem counseling precedes the right of the 80-hours-a-week worker not to have his earnings confiscated to float the slacker in splendid idleness.

They view the refusal to tolerate the intolerable as unacceptable intolerance, and the desire to protect and preserve one’s family, community, country and culture as racism and xenophobia. And lastly, they have stood Jesus’ metaphor on its end, so that they fail to see the beam in the nonwhites’, non-Christians’ eye, but they see and greatly magnify the speck in their own peoples’ eye.

This is deep, delusionary dementia. A recent headline conveys the essence of this syndrome: Cyclists 'braved freezing cold temps' to promote global warming awareness...

This mental disorder is now the dominant orientation of the Western peoples, with its triumphant apotheosis, The One We Have Been Waiting For, coasting on the final approach to the most powerful job in the world, so that he can change the world into Pod kingdom.

The dementia’s hold on the brains of the majority of the white population is such that the vile Afro-American racism that America’s probable 44th president imbibed during most of his adulthood goes unmentioned and uncriticized by the MSM. Even Mr. Obama’s opponent in the presidential election remains paralyzed by the possibility that anything he might say would be deemed "racist."

Barack Obama is expected to receive 75 - 80% of the white vote in many urban areas of the United States. If this is not having one’s body and soul snatched, nothing is.

Podism in history

Mass dementia across wide swaths of the population occurs only once in several hundred years. In the early 13th century, tens of thousands of Europeans, including many children, set out for the Holy Land, to convert Muslims to Christianity through love. They were convinced that the Mediterranean Sea would part to let them through. Most of them would be killed by disease and shipwreck, and the rest were sold into slavery in Tunisia.

In mid-17th century, European Jews were gripped by messianic fever. The One They Had Been Waiting For was Shabbetai Tzvi, a Syrian Jewish kabbalist with delusions of grandeur and a taste for the good life.

In 1648, Shabbetai declared himself as the true Messianic redeemer, designated by God to change the world. His fame swept throughout Jewish, Christian, and Muslim communities. He acquired wealth, a beautiful wife, and a veritable court. He was issuing edicts that were circulating throughout the synagogues of Europe, and wherever he went, crowds of Jews greeted him with, "Long live our King, our Messiah!"

In 1666, “the Messiah” traveled to Istanbul, expecting the fulfillment of the prophecy of his campaign manager, one Nathan of Gaza, that he would be crowned as the sultan. Instead, the actual sultan had him put in chains and imprisoned, but on lenient terms. The lenient incarceration allowed The One to live in the prison castle in splendor -- financed by a huge stream of contributions from his many ardent followers.

Nathan of Gaza, a brilliant propagandist, kept disseminating fanciful reports about the miraculous deeds "the Messiah" was performing while incarcerated. Therefore, the incarceration, instead of proving to the adherents that Shabbetai was an impostor, strengthened their Messianic delusions instead.

But the charade had to end. Under the sultan’s pressure, Shabbetai, still a prisoner, converted to Islam. He received his freedom and various favors in exchange. Some of his followers also went over to Islam, but largely the conversion of the Jewish Messiah to Islam was so devastating to most of his myriad followers that echoes of the damage persist among traditional Jews to this day.

It is significant that despite Shabbetai's apostasy, Nathan’s astute propaganda campaign turned what should have been the spike of death for Shabbetianism into just a bump on the road to self-perpetuation. Many adherents –by then certified Pods—continued to cling to The One, asserting that his conversion was a part of the Messianic scheme.

Paul Johnson writes in his (philosemitic) A History of the Jews that Nathan of Gaza was an outstanding example of a “highly imaginative and dangerous Jewish archetype.” Like Marx and Freud, Johnson adds, Nathan could construct a system of explanations of events that was both highly plausible and sufficiently imprecise to accommodate new, contrary events. And he could do it with tremendous conviction and aplomb. (2)

We will look into the eerily similar role of Barack Obama’s campaign manager, David Axelrod, in a later chapter. But the talent for Body Snatching is found not only among Jews, for it is fundamental to phenomena such as mass advertising and pop culture, Islam and other forms of extreme religious fundamentalism, Fascism, Maoism, Peronism, and more.

Not to forget the Third Reich. What can be said about Hitler’s Germany that has not been said before? How could the country of Gutenberg, Goethe, Schiller, Mann, Bach, Beethoven, Kepler, Heisenberg, Bonhoeffer– and thousands more -- follow in ecstatic obedience to its doom and infamy an obvious, raving mad housepainter from Braunau?

Only Podism can account for that. One by one, your friends, your children, your wife, come home changed by an overwhelming force of propaganda they are unable to resist. And then you are left alone, doubting your sanity or preparing to emigrate. Just as we do now.

The Road from Meccania

Muslim fanatics and La Raza are easy. But the difficulty facing us versus the Pods is enormous. Because these are not space aliens but neighbors, wives and children. And they are not only on the identifiable left but also on the misidentified right, including such leaders of the right as George Bush and John McCain.

Readers of this website know about the attacks perpetrated on it by a section of the “anti-jihadist” blogosphere. There is much credence as well given by ostensibly reasonable Americans to leftist propaganda about the “extreme right” European parties, while the latter are in fact a thin red line standing alone in the way of a nascent Eurabian Caliphate. One can see Pod dementia even among libertarians, e.g. in this attack on two respected and scrupulous ethno-conservatives, slinging trope like “white nationalist,” “racist,” “crackpot” and “nonsense.”

Seeing that Eurabia and Multimerica may be merging into one ideological superstate, if not yet a formal one, naming it would be usefu so that it remains an easily identifiable concept.

A good name already exists in literature’s archives. It is the fictional Meccania – an oppressive police tyranny regimented and controlled by the government as much as errant garbage recyclers are monitored by CCTV cameras in the UK, cartoonists are kept in check by the PC compliance pashas of Eurabia, and unruly bananas are proscribed by EC Commission Regulation No 2257/94.

The neat thing is that Gregory Owen’s Meccania, the Super-State was published in 1918. And the other neat thing is that Meccania, probably attempting to conjure a mechanized society of the future, has the name Mecca in it.

Maybe it’s time to start thinking about the common denominator of the besieged ones in Meccania, and develop a joint course of action. Maybe Benjamin Franklin was right when he said that we must all hang together, or we shall all hang separately.

A European who cares about Europe ought to care about America or Australia. Because when America goes, so does his freedom, whatever remains of it. And if Australia goes, he has no place to go in case life in Eurabia has become untenable and Multiamerica slides into a 1984 scenario.

Conversely, a Flemamericanadian who writes a bestseller gloating over Europe’s coasting toward the abyss, is not only blind to the provenance of all his mental furniture, but deaf to the gasping of his own, deeply wounded country.

Just as there is a Green Party everywhere – and that’s a poster case for an association of Pods – why not a Nonpod Party everywhere?

Nonpod may not be the right name, but we can come up with the right name. The Peoples Party (no apostrophe), perhaps. The principle is to stand the Pods’ agenda on its head: think locally, act globally -- with local manifestation. And ultimately, perhaps, shrug Atlas’ burden globally too, and leave the dhimmi-pods to their fate with the Ummah, the rappers and the rapists.
