The new conquistadors

A heated debate is currently sweeping through the political landscape in Norway. The subject of this frenzied verbal mass brawl is whether Norway has a unique culture or not, and as expected prominent individuals from the hard-left are frantically trying to silence their opponents by heavy handed use of ridicule, derision and bullying tactics. They are desperately trying to intimidate others into accepting their point of view which is that there is no such thing as a unique Norwegian culture and that what is commonly referred to as such is simply a mishmash of foreign ideas and imported traditions that Norwegians themselves never had any control over. To them Norway is simply a terra nullius populated by a people without roots, customs, history or anything else of any measurable value.  The fervour that they display in this endeavour is on par with that of the rabid communists of the baby boomer generation who aggressively proselytized about the superiority of communism in the late sixties and early seventies. And just like the baby boomers before them they are wilfully engaging in a game of divide and conquer in order to achieve their insidious political goals at any cost.

They have of course strong ideological reasons for promulgating such a political hypothesis and try to ram it down the throats of a gullible populace. They know very well that if they can trick the masses into accepting that Norway has no unique culture then they can aggressively argue that Norway cannot possibly be threatened or destroyed culturally by mass immigration. It stands to reason that if something doesn’t exist then it cannot possibly be destroyed. If they are successful in their odious endeavour and have their way Norwegian culture will be rendered obsolete and meaningless and Norway will simply cease to be Norway. The logical conclusions of their argument is that Norway could replace its entire population with Pakistani nationals and still continue to be Norway as there is no distinctive Norwegian culture. Of course most coherent people would see the irrationality and absurdity of such a statement.  

So why do the hard-left choose to convey views that are so easy to refute? 

They do it because they realize that if a message is repeated often enough it will eventually start to sink in regardless of its preposterous conclusions, and by highlighting the ‘inhumane’ and ‘despicable’ nature of their opponents arguments and views they send out a clear and unambiguous signal that people should stay away from ‘the unpalatable’ or else pay the consequences. Their goal is to instil fear and that’s why they rely so heavily on bullying tactics. They want to control people by intimidation and fear plain and simple.  This modus operandi is of course not only limited to the question of the ‘elusive’ Norwegian culture it’s also used on issues such as immigration, homosexuality, gun control and pretty much any other leftwing social issues one can care to think of. They simply cannot accept a free, civilised and unbiased exchange of opinions because in such a scenario their views would quickly be picked apart and squashed under the heel of logic and rationality.

They also rely heavily on ‘benevolent’ and passive aggressive argumentation in order to win over the uninformed and the young.  They question the motives of anyone who has the nerve to exalt Norwegian values and are quick to point out that such ‘racist’ drivel only creates an unhealthy ‘us versus them mentality’ which breeds conflicts that will further alienate the immigrant population and galvanize differences and animosity rather than alleviate them. Strangely enough the hard-left are quick to lecture others in a condescending manner that the immense and insurmountable problems associated with third world mass immigration will sort itself when the immigrants get a chance by the ‘racist’ Norwegians to integrate, which most people of course would interpret as a willingness to adopt to our culture and way of life. ...

Most people however realize that cultures exist and that they are relatively easy to define. To put it bluntly, a culture is the collective sum of customs, traditions and values that characterises a specific national or ethnic group. The easiest way to describe the essence of a particular culture is to compare it with other cultures. The differences found can then be promoted as the uniqueness or individuality of the culture in question.

The coexistence of different cultures doesn’t necessarily mean that they will amalgamate and give birth to a new super culture. There are numerous examples around the world that would contradict such a claim. The aboriginals in Australia are still hanging on to their culture after almost 250 years of white rule and many aboriginals are to this day very reluctant to immerse themselves in Anglo-Saxon mainstream culture. Same thing goes with the US and Canada and their indigenous populations. Even the Sami people in Norway have fiercely held on to their traditions, customs and language a fact that the Norwegian authorities recognize along with the majority of the leftwing agitators who fervently deny the existence of their own culture.

 Unfortunately this is a point that seems lost upon them, or more likely they chose to ignore it as they see it as a means to an end, which is the ultimate and total destruction of their own culture and nation.



  1. The silent majority of Muslim parents would like to send their children to state funded Muslim schools. They are not extremists who want to change of ethos of those schools where Muslim children are in majority. It is the democratic right of every Muslim parent to see that their children receive balanced education, so that when their children grow up, they do not find themselves cut off from their cultural roots and linguistic skills. It is a question of common sense, humanity and reason that bilingual Muslim children must be educated in state funded Muslim schools with bilingual Muslim teachers as role models during their developmental periods. The whole world believes that people who speak more than one language is a vital economic asset. Pupils who speak more than one language do not cause difficulties. It is the politicians and monolingual teachers who are the problems for bilingual pupils. Muslim school will help to cultivate the child into a healthy, fully flourishing individual with a passion for learning. There are hundreds of state and church schools where Muslim children are in majority. In my opinion, all such schools may be opted out as Muslim Academies.

    Muslim schools are not only faith schools; they are more or less bilingual schools. Bilingual Muslim children need to learn and be well versed in Standard English to follow the National Curriculum and go for higher studies and research to serve humanity. State schools with monolingual teachers do not teach Standard English to Migrant children. Bilingual Muslim children learn English in the playgrounds and in the streets. They speak street language with its own grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. The teachers let them speak the same accent in the classroom. They have no courage to stop them or correct them. This is one of the main reasons why one third of children have difficulties with reading when they leave primary schools. Majority of such children are Muslims. In other European countries and in the sub-continent argot and slang are not allowed into the classroom. In Britain primary school teachers do not feel that it’s their role to interfere with self-expression in any shape or form. They encourage children to read poems and stories written in ethnic dialects.

    Muslim faith schools are more or less bilingual schools. Priority will be given to the teaching of Standard English, Arabic, Urdu and other community languages. All Muslim children will learn and be well versed in Standard English and Quranic Arabic and at the same time they will learn and be well versed in one of the community language to keep in touch with their cultural roots and enjoy the beauty of their literature and poetry. Majority of children will learn Urdu language because it is a lingua franca of the migrants from the sub-continent. And majority of British Muslims are from Pakistan and their national language is Urdu.

  2. This is just another proof that practicing Muslims in the west have no intention of integrating. Instead of adopting civilized principles they want to spread values and morals that would be considered barbaric even in the Stone Age.

    Most sane people in the west have long since realized that Islam is an anti-freedom, totalitarian and evil ideology that should be resisted vehemently wherever it is encountered and hopefully more will follow suit.

    Public funded Islamic schools = the indigenous population gets to fund the destruction of their society and their way of life.

    No thanks!
