And no one is more socially conservative and misogynistic than a Muslim fundamentalist.
Where Kratman goes off the rails is in ascribing head-in-the-sand multiculturalism to the entire American and European left. I base this on decades of observing and at times taking part in kratmn passes for the atheist movement in the U.
A hell of a lot of us reject cultural relativism and self-flagellating multiculturalism. To his credit, though, Kratman is not entirely uncritical of the U. His description of the public reaction to further Muslim terror attacks and the subsequent fascist takeover of the U.
He seems to blithely assume that secularism will endure, even following a fascist takeover. This is a terrible, inappropriate comparison. To equate them with authoritarian religious fanatics is highly offensive. Zeke Teflon is the author of Free Radicals: A Novel of Utopia and Dystopia.
Caliphate by Tom Kratman
Is there some chapter in the rulebook that requires even-handedness, even when it would do nothing to advance the story? Can you point that chapter out to me? Can you send me a copy of the rulebook? Also, can you find me some multiculti right wingers? Lotsa luck in that search. Everyone on the left? Mexicans and other Latins…. Yep, hard working as hell.
Maybe too hard working, in some sense. I am quite sympathetic, really. So the problem, if not quite the same, is similarly existential. And the southern border was closed because certain Islamic groups and individuals can blend in with Latins too easily. I see Yugoslavia in our future and I am not enthused.
Also, I never implied that right-wingers fall into that particular trap. They fall into plenty of others, but not that one. And I never said or even implied that you should have dealt with the question of Mexican immigrants in the body of the book.
You brought the matter up in your Afterword, and I simply responded to your comments, which I considered ill informed and insulting. Finally, I think your fears about Mexican immigrants not assimilating are very much misplaced.
This holds true for all of the immigrants I know. So those American Christians in the Philippines, rounding up Moslems and doing a fair imitation of an Einsatzgruppe are shown in a favorable light, are they?
In fact, Christ and Christianity are hardly mentioned in a US context. Live with it, the multi-culti are a left wing phenom. That is no more redeemed by you than the Nazi Party was redeemed by John Rabe.
The problem with Latin immigration…there are a couple. There is no harder working group anywhere. Also, we intermarry to a fair degree, and that is super important. However, we live in the society we have, not the one we might like.
We have no really good plan to change that society for the better, and no really good prospects for doing so. They deal with other Spanish speakers.
They retain loyalties to the homeland and the culture of the homeland, quite despite that they left said homeland because said homeland is a hell hole.
Unlike in past days, communication is easy; the ties with the old country do not break.
Unlike in past days, we no longer have the system to force assimilation and to indoctrinate the kids to be Americans first and foremost. Unlike in past days, we have a large and czliphate racial grievance industry doing everything possible to make sure that they do no assimilate.
And remember that Blacks and Latins tend to detest each other and are in competition.
Sometimes that can toj out. More often, you get Yugoslavia, Rwanda, etc. I thought there was a chance that anti-islamist atheists and right-wing Christians T. As is very evident from this tread, Tom hates islamists so do I but he seems to have a soft spot for Christian theofascists.
Caliphate Afterword – Tom Kratman
Come on Tom, tlm do you want? Seri0usly, what do you want? This discussion could be a hell of a lot of fun. And yeah, I do think Caliphate is worth reading—go buy it.
