When things seem unstoppably powerful and permanent is sometimes when they are past their prime. Barack Obama represents Peak Negro. Progressives gave up on blacks as their pet clients sometime in the 90’s, after OJ, with welfare reform. Concentrating on women, they started to emphasize gays more, and also recently marijuana. Obama is a lagging indicator, and there will never be another black president, just as Kennedy represented the lagging peak of white ethnic influence. Post WWII progressives really had no use for white ethnics, and had been promoting blacks for some time.
I’m not Charlie, but of course you’ve heard that from a lot of people already. Charlie Hebdo is a left-wing institution that fired a guy for anti-Semitism. They tried to get the Front National outlawed, so I don’t care if Moslem terrorists kill them all or take them back to Syria as wives. Still, the incident illustrates a point. Monkeys don’t make very good pets, eventually they bite people and throw their feces. Moslems or blacks making life miserable for white workers is great, when they make life miserable for leftist journalists and Jews it’s not so fun any more.
Islam is a frankly ridiculous political and religious system and has been for centuries. As a way of uniting Arabs as a horde it was revolutionary and terrifying. But Europeans adapted to it, to an extent, organized militarily and commercially to make it an exotic irrelevance after ocean trade to the Far East was developed. It became significant again in the 20th century as the world reshuffled politically and Third World countries became pawns in power struggles. Oil in the Middle East gave Arabs a lot of influence.
But Moslems don’t represent any military or economic threat, they are just another set of undeveloped wretches screaming for handouts. These people get temporary rushes of power, but it doesn’t last. Their usefulness lasts around two generations, then they are dumped. Blacks in Chicago were a big part of the power structure, but now Rahm Emanuel wants them gone.
European politicians are coming to the same realization. The Moslem welfare cases, pimps, drug dealers, and other criminals, are more trouble than they are worth. They will continue to have a lot of power, but it will slowly decrease.
Moslems are a completely sterile people. Blacks at least provide entertainers and athletes. The top fraction is capable of functioning within society, not really contributing anything but not being an excessive burden either. Blacks generally have people skills, and are capable of being friendly and charming when they want to be. Moslems usually don’t even have this.
The Arab Spring is a big benefit to Europe, not because it has brought democracy, freedom and human rights to the Moslem world, but because they are concentrating on killing each other now. Hopefully it will go on for a long time.
