How They Do It– ‘Is Guilt Killing the West from Within?’

ed note–the latest Judaic madness from the Judaic madman Jew-lio Meotti, who argues in J-code that the reluctance of the West–and especially the US–to assert itself militarily in destroying the Islamic world for the benefit of the Jewish state is rooted in ‘guilt’ over the centuries of Western colonialism.

Yes, the same Jew-lio Meotti who is constantly agitating the guilt gland of the West over that great barbecue said to have taken place in the last century known as the Hollerco$t.

Of particular puke value is Meotti’s pretending to be morally mal-affected by what happened to the Christians of Iraq by those mean ol’ muzlims after the US–per Israel’s orders–invaded and  destroyed that country.

A “sense of guilt” for colonialism is debasing the West from within, according to Professor Bruce Gilley, and authoritarian regimes such as Iran, Russia, China and Turkey are profiting from this weakness.

The Romans called it damnatio memoriae: the damnation of memory that resulted in destroying the portraits and even the names of the fallen emperors. The same process is now underway in the West about its colonial past. The cultural elite in the West now seem so haunted by feelings of imperialist guilt that they are no longer confident that our civilization is something to be proud of.

A sense of guilt now seems a kind of post-Christian substitute religion that seduces many Westerners. The French scholar Shmuel Trigano suggested that this ideology is turning the Westerners into “post-colonial subjects” who no longer believe in their own civilization, but instead what will destroy it: multiculturalism. In France, for example, a manifesto was launched for “a multicultural and post racial republic”. The result would be, in the words of the anthropologist Jean-Loup Amselle, a “war of identities” and a clash between communities. Last month, the UK Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said that, if elected Prime Minister, he would order the British Museum to return to Greece the Elgin Marbles, the frieze that had surrounded the Parthenon of Athens and one of the major attractions of the British Museum. “This whole campaign is sheer lunacy,” wrote Richard Dorment. But it is a lunacy spreading all over Europe.

French President Emmanuel Macron announced that he wants to change the rules that make French public collections untouchable, and allow the return to Africa of dozens of historical artifacts now in the Louvre Museum. Macron has appointed two commissioners, the writer Senegalese Felwine Sarr and the art expert Bénédicte Savoy, to prepare a report.

Tanzania is asking for the return of the famous skeleton of a prehistoric Brachiosaurus, the main attraction of Natural History Museum of Berlin. New guidelines guide on restitution of “colonial objects” were recently unveiled by Germany’s Minister of Culture, Monika Grütters.

Most historians are now taking the side of the campaign for returning these objects. One is David Olusoga, a historian of Nigerian origins, who has claimed that these colonial artifacts were “thefts” committed by the colonial powers at the time. Writing in The Telegraph, Zareer Masani, a historian of Indian origins, took a different position. It was the colonialists, he said, who had a decisive role in preserving the antiquities of the civilization:

“It was their dedication, often at huge personal sacrifice, that unlocked the wonders of many lost classical civilisations… The fact is that we have no idea what would have become of the world’s ‘looted’ antiquities if they hadn’t been preserved in Western collections. Would the treasures of Beijing’s Summer palace have survived Mao’s Cultural Revolution? Would the Elgin marbles have survived Turkish tour guides chopping off chunks to sell as souvenirs? Would Daesh [ISIS] have spared those Middle Eastern artefacts that survive in European museums?”.

In 1969, the BBC aired Kenneth Clark’s “Civilization“, the series exploring Western art and culture. Then, civilization was something to be glorified. In 2018, the BBC aired the remake of Clark’s classic, “Civilizations” — note the plural. “This year, the 21st century version of the landmark show is to turn a critical eye to the history of British civilisation, questioning whether it is built on ‘looting and plunder’ and who, really, are the barbarians,” writes Hannah Furness in The Telegraph. One of the new presenters is David Olusoga, the historian who called the Elgin Marbles “a very clear case of theft“.

Thirty years ago, in a book, The Tears of the White Man, the French philosopher Pascal Bruckner wrote that, “the remorseless and self-righteous critic who endlessly denounces the deceptions of parliamentary democracy is suddenly rapt with admiration before the atrocities committed in the name of the Koran, the Vedas, the Great Helmsman…” Since then, Western elites have excused many crimes committed in the name of political Islam, as if these were the consequences of our own colonial crimes.

When Christians in Iraq were exiled, murdered or persecuted en masse by the so-called Islamic State, the West stood silent — as if these Christians were the agents of the Western colonialism and not the legitimate and oldest inhabitants of the Middle East long before the Arabs converted to Islam. When a mob destroyed the French Institute in Cairo, burning books and collections, those who now want to return the “colonial artifacts” stood silent. When Iran’s President Rouhani visited Rome, the Italian authorities covered the naked statues in the Capitoline Museums. Are we covering our own culture to please the Islamic world?

Unfortunately, what we are “returning” are not only the colonial artifacts, but our very pride in Western civilization. A new “damnation of the memory” is taking place in our own museums, academia and chattering classes — and it has deep consequences for our ability to deal with the enemies of civilization. “Postcolonial material provides an important fuel for jihadism,” stated France’s most important scholar of Islamism, Gilles Kepel.

“The Monuments Men“, a film made in 2014 by George Clooney, is about a group of Western curators and art experts who traveled to Europe to rescue the artistic masterpieces stolen by the Nazis. It was a story of Western bravery and moral clarity during the Second World War. In 2015, ISIS destroyed Palmyra, one of the most important cities of the ancient world. But the West watched this cultural destruction passively and no “Monuments Men” were dispatched to save Palmyra and other threatened sites. The Russians, profiting from the Western passivity, entered Palmyra and Russia’s most famous conductor, Valery Gergiev, on performing a triumphal concert in the Palmyra arena, said: “We protest against barbarians who destroyed wonderful monuments of world culture”. The Westerners then recreated a banal copy of the arch of Palmyra in London.

Where are our Monuments Men now?

    It’s always good to know who’s trying to tell you stuff. ‘Giulio Meotti’, as the name suggests, is Italian. Either cryptoid or shill. His father was a goldsmith in Arezzo which brought him into up close and personal contact with Jews. It seems that Jules has made a career out of rounding up Jewish laggards, strays, doubters, and self-haters, and herding them back into the fold. Needless to say, he’s a rabid Zionoid.

    “A ‘sense of guilt’ for colonialism is debasing the West from within”, Jules reports. ‘Rotting it out’ might be another way of putting it. ‘Jew phucked’ another. Not content with bankrupting the once white Euro nations with usurious debt, the Jewish ‘ubermenschen’ are now enthusiastically engaged in simultaneously guilt-tripping white Euros, particularly ‘white males’, into thinking there’s something wrong with them, and turning their ‘homelands’ into menageries. It started with Germany, ironically one of the least ‘imperialist’ of all Euro nations. Utterly and totally trashing their nation and convincing them that far from being amongst the most ‘civilized’, they were the most barbaric. Well now they’ve applied the same formula to ALL Europeans.

    “The cultural elite in the West now seem so haunted by feelings of imperialist guilt that they are no longer confident that our civilization is something to be proud of.”

    Aw shucks. Do I dare eat a peach? The religious architecture of Europe is testimony to the skill and endeavor unleashed by Christian civilization in Europe. European ‘imperialism’, particularly British, largely parallels the rise of ‘finance capitalism’ otherwise known as ‘state-backed usury’. The ONLY way forward for a country which has handed its money supply over to a pack of Jews is to expand its economy in perpetuity. Which leads inevitably and inexorably to ‘imperialism’. Why? For the extremely simple reason that NOTHING in this world or ten other worlds can keep pace with compound interest, a completely artificial construct.

    Meanwhile, Rotshite bumboy Emmanuel Macron wants to overturn the rules that make French public collections untouchable. You can be damn sure that Macron’s ‘largesse’, to use a Frenchism, will not extend to PRIVATE collections. Y’see, along with concepts like ‘nation’ and ‘nationalism’, ‘public’ and ‘public interest’ have no meaning in a Jew Werld Ordure.

    “A sense of guilt now seems a kind of post-Christian substitute religion that seduces many Westerners.”

    AS IF a ‘sense of guilt’ were the defining feature of Christianity. Got news for ya Giulio … ‘guilt’ derives from a little thing known as ‘conscience’. Christians know it as the ‘Voice of God’. It is the vital element which distinguishes actual human beings from psychopaths. What do you know it as Giulio?

    ‘Round about the mountain
    ‘Round about the mountain
    My God is waitin’
    You can rise in His arms
    The Lord loves a sinner
    The Lord loves a sinner man
    The Lord loves a sinner who will rise in His arms
