Chapter 3: Sarko = The Art of the Illusory Choice
The New Legend of Lone Ranger and Tonto
There was a time when this staple American joke could express the difference between a liberal and a conservative:
The Lone Ranger and Tonto go camping in the desert. They set up their tent and fall sound asleep.
Some hours later, Tonto wakes the Lone Ranger and says, “Kemo Sabe, look towards sky, what you see?”
“I see millions of stars,' replies the Lone Ranger.”
“What that tell you?” asks Tonto.
The Lone Ranger ponders, then says, “Astronomically, it tells me there are millions of galaxies and billions of planets. Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo. Theologically, the Lord is all-powerful and we are small and insignificant. Also, it seems to be three o’clock in the morning and we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What's it tell you, Tonto?”
“It tells me someone stole our tent.”
This joke is now obsolete. Because the Lone Ranger –- the quintessential reality-blind liberal in this joke -- has engineered the theft of the tent, and he knows who stole it and why, even as he rhapsodizes about the galaxies and the weather. The tent has been stolen to provide an underpinning for The New World Order via phony social justice to new trans-border arrivals from Mexico, Guatemala and Yemen in the U.S., and Morocco, Ivory Coast and Albania in Western Europe.
The Lone Ranger doesn’t care, because he has already decided to retire from running up and down Texas on his white horse. He is about to run for political office, and with that tent he has just secured his block of voters, as well as boosting his moral vanity. He has stolen from his faithful sidekick, Tonto, and has made a mockery of his oath of office, without compunction.
And what about Tonto? The conservative’s function in the general order of things is to be the skeptic, to resist social change, to mistrust human nature and grand schemes of improving it. But that was the old Tonto.
The new Tonto, if he be an American, expected that Lone Ranger would swipe the tent. He also knew that new claimants for more tents would be pouring across the Rio Grande, so he has arranged for a steady supply of tents on credit from Vietnam. He is going to make money on the Rio Grande tent thing anyway.
If Tonto be a European, he was in on the heist from the beginning. He shares the Long Ranger’s utopian objectives completely. The only difference is that Tonto likes his suits bespoke and his shoes from J.M. Weston, whereas Kemo Sabe, relying on his own natural charisma, settles for haberdashery from Woolworth’s. The tent-related banter is just a discourse about epistemology.
And where does that leave you and me, Dear Reader? As the Wilhelm Tell Overture sounds the theme of standing up for freedom and justice, don’t you forget that we are neither the Masked One nor his practical sidekick. We are whom they ride.
Sarko, or how to fail at trompe l'oeil
The New Tonto is Sarko, i.e. what passes for Western “conservatives” like Nicholas Sarkozy or George W. Bush. The Sarkos orchestrate Big Government’s collusion with Big Business to engineer a society demographically and culturally that will, in their narcissistic judgment, best serve as both a paragon of social justice and a hatchery of worker bees and state-maintained drones for the global beehive.
There are differences of degree and intent, but not much of result, relative to the Barko class of socialist multiculti saboteurs. It’s only fitting that the president who pushed America into its tailspin was the “conservative” patriot Bush, who sincerely believed that every ‘Hispanic’ immigrant should own a taxpayer subsidized home, every child is a potential genius depending only on the size of the federal education budget, and it's America’s sacred mission to bring democracy to the world, damn the expense. He capped his “right-wing” presidency with a bailout for the banksters and one last Bushism: "I've abandoned free market principles to save the free market system.”
That Bush’s overtly socialist successor continued with the pestilential madness of bailout only shows how little Sarko and Barko differ in substance. Those who excoriate the Obama administration for the lapses that led to the mass murder of American soldiers by a jihadi U.S. Army Major, and a near-blow up of Northwest Flight 253 by Umar Abdulmutallab, prefer to forget how much responsibility the “conservative” Bushes, père et fils, bear for this farcical circus.
Both jihadis were inspired by the teachings of the U.S.-born Yemeni imam Anwar al-Awlaki. If Yemeni and other Muslim jihadis are increasingly born in the United States it’s because in 1990 President George H.W. Bush signed into law the insane Diversity Visa Lottery that sprinkles annually 50,000 “green cards” onto random applicants from “underrepresented” regions ranging from Baluchistan to Zombiestan.
It’s a Sarko -- Papa Bush -- not Alinsky acolyte Obama, whom Americans can thank for being enriched with the presence of 1011 new Yemeni residents just since 2000, among the many thousands of new Americans from every other jihadi factory in the world. Bush the younger lent a hand when he allowed the release from U.S. custody in 2007 of confirmed Muslim terrorists, two of whom would become leaders of Al Qaeda in Yemen and trainers of the underpants bomber Abdulmutallab.
Over there, they bemoan their myopic liberation from whitey’s rule [e.g. in Yemen, here], for they are incapable of ruling themselves. Sarko therefore invites them over here and places them in high government positions, to make Western governance a little more like Yemen’s, Palestine’s or Somalia’s.
The thick blanket of PC inverse reality that America has to suffer whether it elects a Sarko or a Barko as president also led to the officer commission and repeated military promotion of the self-identified Palestinian America-hater and fanatical Muslim, Nidal Malik Hasan, despite his incompetence. Then the payday came, except it’s the little people that paid the price with their lives, not the cowardly Army brass who had imposed on them the multiculti diversity cult.
It’s quite like the case of the Iranian-born Ali Dizaei, Scotland Yard’s “Teflon Commander” and president of the National Black Police Association [no joke]. Dizaei climbed to the rank of Commander despite poor performance reviews and an evidenced trail of association with mobsters, criminals and prostitutes, money laundering, interfering in court cases for money, inveterate bullying and lying, blackmail through serial litigation, and probable breaches in seemingly lucrative links with foreign embassies, including spying for Iran.
All possible because Dizaei was an assertive Asian Muslim in a country of cowardly white whatchmacallits. The charges in a 2003 trial against the Teheran-style cop, based on a multi-million-pound investigation, were dropped by the prosecution and a £80,000 “compensation” was paid to him after another Asian Muslim high police officer, Tarique Ghaffur, testified that Dizaei had been targeted “because of his colour.” As Mail Online puts it, “Successive Met commissioners, home secretaries and independent police watchdogs were too nervous to take him on because of the race storm he would invoke.” Thus perish nations.
Whereas a committed, clever, socialist enemy deserves respect, a “conservative” who calls imported Muslim rabble, rabble (racaille) before he is elected, and calls Arabic the language of “modernity and science” after he is elected, deserves only contempt. Having dwelled on American folly for a while, it’s time to revisit the original Sarko and the rest of the Eurabian Grand Guignol.
Son Excellence Monsieur Le President Nicolas Sarkozy considers the Islamization of Europe “inevitable.” The blogger Tiberge, a close Sarkozy watcher, summarizes other components of the French president’s vision as "Frenchified Islam,” métissage –- i.e. interbreeding and cultural amalgamation between the French and their African-Muslim imports, preferential treatment of the latter, dissolution of national, regional, and ethnic identities, subjugation to EU, and socialism.
But perhaps Sarkozy’s strangest flight from reality is his EuroMed initiative, launched already in his election campaign. EuroMed is a union between Europe, North Africa and the Arab Middle East that went into effect on 1 January 2010. It’s a key step in the Eurabian scheme, and a major nail in Europe’s coffin. Sarkozy waxes poetic about “conservative” themes like free trade and investments, but the important effect is that tens of millions of Muslim Arabs and Africans will move legally to Europe. Pamela Geller’s title, “Europe's looming demise,” sums it up.
Sarkozy’s delusion is such that in a speech he gave in Toulon in 2007 (1) he said that the EuroMed Union “is not solely about turning the Mediterranean Basin into a bridge between the North and the South. It is also about turning it into a haven of peace, culture, democracy and sustainable development from which will emerge -- shaped by centuries and civilizations -- the common destiny of Europe, the Middle East and Africa.” When B. Hussein Obama cited in his 2009 Ramadan message “Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings”, it merely sounded as though he and President Sarkozy had attended the same madrassa.
The common destiny devoutly wished by the entire Western ruling elite of Barkos, Sarkos, Harpos and Gekkos was on view when the French government mobilized 45,000 of its paramilitary police to receive the gift of the Afro-Muslim bearers of peace and culture on New Year’s Eve 2009. The operation must have been spectacularly successful, for only about 41,000 cars were torched, compared to 46, 814 in 2007, making for a total of about 218,000 French citizens’ automobiles (source here) sacrificed in the last five years alone on the altar of the French mandarins’ madness.
This form of spongiform encephalitis is, alas, contagious. Another Sarko, George W. Bush, said this in a 2000 campaign speech in Miami:
“America has one national creed, but many accents. We are now one of the largest Spanish-speaking nations in the world. By nominating me, my party has made a choice to welcome the new America.[snip] I see a hemisphere of 500 million people, striving with the dream of a better life. A dream of free markets and free people, in a hemisphere free from war and tyranny. [snip] Thanks to NAFTA, America now trades $200 billion worth of goods with Mexico. [snip] The economic case for NAFTA is strong, and the moral case is just as powerful.”
To poke just one hole in this particular Body Snatcher (2) meringue, when Bush was touting NAFTA and the benefits of trading with Mexico, the 13 years of that union had already cost the United States the loss of 766,030 jobs (1,015,290 by 2004, still on Bush’s watch), and the 1993 $16.6 billion U.S. trade deficit with NAFTA had grown by 378% to $62.8 billion in 2000 alone.
One could go on about the Sarkozy vaudeville, from his proposed carbon tax “to fight climate change,” voided by France’s Constitutional Council, to his 2007 replacement of meritocracy with vaginocracy by pointedly appointing seven women to his 15-member cabinet -- a “progressive” trend now championed by the comically misnamed "conservative" French UMP party. But what’s the use? Whatever elysian fantasy be hatched at the Elysée, it is exceeded in some other Western country.
Another Euro ersatz “conservative” is Herman Van Rompuy. His appointment as EU president and Catherine Ashton’s as EU foreign policy chief was hailed as an attempt “to strike the right balance” between conservatives and socialists (e.g. AP here, Foreign Policy here). We’ll leave aside the more egregious matter of the socialist Catherine Ashton, for she belongs with her mentor Gordon Brown in the “Barko” category of overt saboteurs of the West. But the “conservative” in this duo is worth a quick mention.
Paul Belien has reported that Van Rompuy started out as a conservative Catholic, but after assuming the leadership of the Flemish Christian-Democrat Party he steered the passing in 1990 of one of the most liberal abortion bills in Europe. Later, as Speaker of Parliament, he prevented the implementation of a Belgian Supreme Court electoral redistricting decision favorable to conservatives, even though his party had been elected to power based on its promise to enforce that decision.
At his first press conference, the “conservative” new EU president defined 2009 as the first year of global government and hailed the climate conference in Copenhagen as "another step forward towards the global management of the planet." To sum up, Mr. Van Rompuy was hailing the onset of a regime of supra-national socialist enviro-fascism under the fraudulent pretext of AGW (Anthropogenic Global Warming). If this be conservatism, what is liberalism?
Consider another “conservative,” Frau Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel. In her conservative (by German standards) party, Christian-Democratic Union, ’Conservative’ is almost an insult (translated here). A key adviser to Merkel’s government is Professor Hans Joachim Schellnhuber who rails against the West’s “CO2 insolvency” and prescribes the creation of a CO2 budget for every person on the planet. Herr Professor Doktor advocates that the West pay $142 billion annually to “give back part of the wealth it has taken from the South.“
The Czech physicist Luboš Motl commented on this, “It helps me to understand how crazy political movements such as the Nazis or communists could have so easily taken over a nation that is as sensible as Germany. A few rotten steps in the hierarchy is enough for a loon to get to the very top.” [Question: Why have most of Europe’s remaining common sense marbles rolled toward Bohemia?]
It’s all a shadow game, and Western mass media, public education and other social institutions are the magic lantern throwing shadows in Plato’s cave. Europeans and founding stock North Americans and Australians who still have intact brains after treatment at those all-pervading Body Snatcher hatcheries (3) cannot trust that “conservative” politicians will save them from the disasters wrought by the liberal ones.
Nowhere to hide
Realist thinkers know that the United States is destroying itself through unchecked corporate plutocrat greed, a lopsided economy based on imports and consumption, irrational immigration, deluded military adventures and reckless monetary policies. Europe is perceived as self-destructing via a putsch by its ruling socialist elites that has robbed Europeans of their basic civil liberties and subjected them to the calamity of a reverse Reconquista by Muslim hordes.
But just like peas in a pod tend to be similar, so do the Pods (4) themselves. What appears as fundamental differences in the conditions of various Western countries is merely because each nation’s Pods, though chewing their people by the same windup key, having started in each place from a set of unique circumstances have left somewhat different remains still standing.
If America’s kakistocrats are replacing the population with a permanent Latino underclass, Belgian Snatcher princelings do so with Moroccans and Turks. If Americans still have their freedom of purchasing health care per individual preference while Canadians or Europeans wait 20 months for MRI scans, it’s only because the U.S. Body Snatcher junta is in the pilot seat only as of January 2009. If Great Britain’s Mad Hatters have appointed a Muslim fanatic, Asim Hafeez, as “Head of Intervention” at the Office of Counter-Terrorism, America’s lunatic overlords must settle for a somewhat milder Muslim version, Arif Alikhan, as Assistant Secretary in the Department of Homeland Security.
Either clique works with the material at hand, with the same motivation. Just working toward the great convergence, Meccania (5). The supra-state of black, brown and dwindling guilty white in stationary orbit around Dar al-Islam and a twin-beam footprint over the former Roman Empire and North America.
Meccania -- where everyone’s IQ is much above the average, like the globally equalized taxes rising perpetually so that all receive according to their needs. Where either of equally hermaphroditic men and women honed by métissage bear multicult children jerking to Islamic hip hop in Swedish. Where Pashtun immigrants are the new tax-paying technocrat class of the European Union, MIT is all black, Haiti has been reimagined into the high-tech capital of the world, and the NBA -- well, let’s not talk about the NBA.
Blessed Meccania -- Where closed circuit TV cameras in every room are remote- controlled by the Ministry of Diversity, and every rectum sports by law a PETN sensor, so as not to discriminate at airport security checks. Where all racist thoughts have been nipped in the bud, and strife has ceased with the melting of all guns into cast Piss Crucifixes and other fun public art.
The same demented cabal that keeps making of Palestinian jihadis U.S. Army majors and of Pakistani salafists British anti-terrorism advisers has designated Istanbul, Pécs and Essen European culture capitals for 2010. One might quibble that Constantinople had a lot more European culture and Europeans too until it and they fell to the Turks in 1453. The Hungarian city of Pécs, an important Christian center since the 4th century, had its churches turned into mosques, its schools into madrassas, its laws into sharia and its citizens into corpses, slaves, dhimmis or exiles during its 140-year occupation by the Turks. And if Essen remains free of the scars of the Turks’ European culture, it’s only because it lies west of Vienna.
Putting a lid on past hurts in the name of peaceful coexistence is a good thing. But an aggressive whoring of a continent’s identity and history in the name of a toxic chimera imposed by homegrown European viziers is less salutary.
The European who escapes to the United States may gain limited freedoms of speech and armed self-defense; at least until the Obama/Pelosi team has been able to implement its full 4-year plan. But he will be immersed in the same putrid pond of “Diversity” and other self-evident lies blanketing the landscape by Snatcher diktat. He will experience an even greater diminution of social capital and workplace competence through the proactive “diversification” activities of his Snatcher masters. He will bear the same risk of Muslims as guardians of his country’s security, and the attendant risk of pauperization by Muslim-proxy (i.e. government) lawfare, should he complain about it.
Having escaped a country where the nonwhite 5% -10% of the population gives rise to most of the social problems and costs, he will have arrived in a country where the comparable demographic segment constitutes 30% of the population and growing. Having escaped the robbery of his income by Eurosocialist taxation, he will experience the robbery of his wealth by the American junta’s stealth dollar devaluation.
Conversely, the American moving to Western Europe in hope of improving his family’s lot is seeking shelter from the pouring rain under a leaking downspout. If he withdrew his children from the U.S. public school system that graduates en masse young adults who can't do basic algebra, he will find out that the “Unreformed European school system 'might collapse'” from the same, undiagnosed disease. His children had to walk through a metal detector to enter their American school, but in England they will leave home already wearing slash-proof Kevlar jackets. If he fled the flooded dollar, he will now quake with the fever of a sick euro or a tubercular pound.
“There'll be nowhere to run from the new world government”, spelled out a recent headline of the Telegraph over a December 2009 photo captioned, The Committee to Save the World. It showed José Manuel Barroso, Barack Obama, Nicolas Sarkozy, Angela Merkel, Gordon Brown and some supporting players in the Marx Brothers-and-Sisters enterprise. They were at the Copenhagen “Climate Change” Conference, discussing how to wreck their peoples and their civilization in such a broad masterstroke that they remain buried forever.
What the American writer James Hudnall calls “Totentanz: The Global Warmist’s Desperate Dance of Death” is a dance performed by characters that couldn’t have been invented by a team of top-flight comedy scriptwriters. Disregarding the rich cast of second bananas, just the lineup of the two-dozen protagonists offers a comedic richness not known since Monty Python.
There is the Nobel laureate and carbon-trading billionaire-to-be Algore, the amalgamation of his names marking star status accorded heretofore only to the most important rappers and hairdressers. There is the global-warming guru Rajendra Pachauri, the UN’s point man in this profitable skit, whose penchant for tall Himalayan tales of melting glaciers, countenance, and swell lifestyle financed by carbon hysteria make him an ideal law-practice partner for the Unfrozen Cavemen Lawyer. But enough of that. Unfortunately, the joke is on us.
The show goes on even as the hoax is being exposed. Trillions of dollars and euros are being torched by the happy pranksters at the top, even as the fatuity, criminality and uselessness of their multifarious enterprises are exposed for all to see. For the global scams – whether in climate hockey sticks or capital multiplier gambles and their contagious PIGS and bailouts, whether in OECD tax rate “equalization” drives or creeping UNionization of the legal codes of formerly sovereign nations -- have one paramount goal. It is to rob the peoples and people comprising Western Civilization of their wealth, rights and freedoms won with blood over 2500 years and enshrined in their founding documents and traditions.
Global Meccania is built of the worst of heedless American greed, totalitarian European messianism, and tribe-first Third World corruption. The March of the Body Snatchers, its amusing Marxian escapades notwithstanding, is a march to global serfdom.
Has bells in it and smells like pepper
Since we started in the lower North-American Southwest, the back cover might as well invoke the upper Northwest. This is a bear warning sign in a nature preserve in British Columbia:
The text reads:
“Due to the frequency of human-bear encounters, the B.C. Fish and Wildlife Branch is advising hikers, hunters, fishermen and any persons that use the out of doors in a recreational or work related function to take extra precautions while in the field.
We advise the outdoorsman to wear little noisy bells on clothing so as to give advanced warning to any bears that might be close by so you don’t take them by surprise.
We also advise anyone using the out-of-doors to carry “Pepper Spray” with him in case of an encounter with a bear.
Outdoorsmen should also be on the watch for fresh bear activity, and be able to tell the difference between black bear feces and grizzly bear feces. Black bear feces is smaller and contains lots of berries and squirrel fur. Grizzly bear shit has bells in it and smells like pepper.”
It’s not coincidental that Canada has been taken over by the Foaming Green Pods. For here is the formula of Body Snatcher governance writ large. That grizzly bear excrement is a good metaphor for what happens to the law-abiding, responsible, good citizen who puts his trust in the kind of ruling elite that Western democracy has been producing for a long time now.
Refusing to go into grizzly bear territory equipped with pepper spray and little bells, refusing to become bear shit, means questioning insane premises of Western society that have been woven into the woof and warp of our daily life to the extent of becoming inseparable and unnoticeable.
Consider the recent attempted murder of the Islam-offending cartoonist Kurt Westergaard in Aarhus by an ax-wielding Somali. Westergaard evaded his assailant by retreating into a “safe bathroom.”
Why was a Somali man with “close ties” to the terror organizations Al-Shabaab and Al-Qaeda allowed as much as to set foot in Denmark, let alone live there for the past 12 years? Why should there be any Africans or Muslims living in Denmark at all? Why does a Viking living in the oldest city in Scandinavia have to run away and cower in a “safe bathroom” instead of meeting with a shotgun blast a Muslim barbarian crashing through his front door with an axe? Why does Danish police respond so meekly when the crazed jihadi attacks them in turn? What does all this mean in the context of Denmark’s being one of the more ethnocentric and “conservative” countries remaining in the West? Why has nearly every “conservative” critic of the frayed West revealed by this episode felt the need to stress that he was not an “Islamophobe”? Considering Western history and the daily news, are such apologies warranted?
We conclude with the happy news relayed to us by Mrs. Amando Blanca Bibiano, Euromillion co-ordinator, Welltrust Security Company S.A..

Western politicians’ promises of a peaceful and prosperous future in the global multiculti supra-state have far less foothold in probability than that.

The developed Pods become Body Snatchers who replace living people while appearing to be identical to them. The new Body Snatchers then grow new Pods from which new Body Snatchers develop – until the whole population has been “snatched.”
