Quotes Suitable for Framing: Theodore Roosevelt

Wherever the Mohammedans have had complete sway, wherever the Christians have been unable to resist them by the sword, Christianity has ultimately disappeared. From the hammer of Charles Martel to the sword of Jan Sobieski, Christianity owed its safety in Europe to the fact that it was able to show that it could and would fight as well as the Mohammedan aggressor.
Theodore Roosevelt, Fear God and Take Your Own Part, (1916)

  1. Truth. It’s happening to the USA. Obama promised fundamental change: translation irreparable damage to our nation and our way of life. Now, only 62% of working age Americans are in the civilian labor force, 51% of Americans earn less than $30,000 a year, annual median disposable income is $8,000 below a decade ago, 50% (up from 25% in 1999) of 25 year-olds live in their parents’ basements, . . .
    How many of Obama’s developmental years was the zero educated/raised to be an Indonesian Muslim? Much later in life, Obama fell in with America-hating Michelle Robinson and Jeremy Wright (a nonviolent, post-modern Nat Turner – an insult against Nat Turner) and deceitfully “converted” to a black identity (hate whitey) cult.

  2. The political elites of western Europe and Canada are importing a Muslim underclass
    that is hostile to their society and will never assimilate. Those elites are doing this
    against the expressed wishes of their native populations. There is no way this will
    end well for those democracies, or for western culture in general. I cannot imagine
    what is prompting those societies to commit cultural suicide.

  3. Clinton wrote, “I cannot imagine what is prompting those societies to commit cultural suicide.”

    Germany has a Total Fertility Rate of 1.43 (The replacement rate is, of course, 2.1). This decline has been going on for 50 years and the median age of the population is 46.1. A quarter of women aged 45-55 are childless. On present trends (and there are simply not enough women of child-bearing age to reverse them) Germany will lose a fifth of its population by the mid 2060s.

    Germans know that that their nation, with its language and its culture, is doomed to extinction. Why should they care who occupies their former lands? Disgusted by their past and with no future, why should they care about their doomed culture?

    The prospects for Italy and Greece are much the same.

  4. “A people without religion will in the end find that it has nothing to live for”. T.S.Elliot

    I recall Theodore Roosevelt saying, “It’s not having been in the dark house that matters but having come out”. How many in the West are sitting in a dark house waiting to die? It is time to come out.

  5. How many in the West don’t realize they’re in a dark house waiting to die because they’re not sitting? Instead, they’re living for the moment, living like there’s no tomorrow, dancing in the dark, like no one is watching, partying like it’s 1999?

  6. Ernst, a good question for which I haven’t a ready answer. So I’ll just throw out another TR quotation, while I think about it. “The man who loves other countries as much as his own stands on a level with the man who loves other women as much as he loves his own wife.”
    It puts one in mind of the current President of our no longer exceptional country.
