Winston Churchill was one of the greatest and wisest men of the 20th century, a master of war and politics.
A passionate defender of liberty.
He was fortunate to perish before the mind poison called Political Correctness warped Western culture, imperiling all that is positive and civilized.
Political Correctness is also anti-American, anti-capitalism, anti-white, against most people and things that brought us modernity, comfort, health and liberty.
In 1899, Churchill published his book The River War, an account of British and Mohammedan fighting in the Sudan.
Here are some prescient excerpts:
How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy.
The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.
The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property — either as a child, a wife, or a concubine.*
No stronger retrograde force exists in the world.
Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith . . . and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.
And over a century later, little has changed. What Churchill didn’t mention was the Mohammedan’s preferred government: “royalty” or religious fanaticism.
