An eschaton up my sleeve...?

The world is charged with the grandeur of God.
It will flame out, like shining from shook foil;
It gathers to a greatness, like the ooze of oil
Crushed. Why do men then now not reck his rod?
Generations have trod, have trod, have trod;
And all is seared with trade; bleared, smeared with toil;
And wears man's smudge & shares man's smell: the soil
Is bare now, nor can foot feel, being shod.

And for all this, nature is never spent;
There lives the dearest freshness deep down things;
And though the last lights off the black West went
Oh, morning, at the brown brink eastward, springs --
Because the Holy Ghost over the bent
World broods with warm breast & with ah! bright wings.

Hi Hesp,

Upon googling your V. quotation, I came across the Discordians who make me laugh.

See the Principia Discordia.

Interestingly, this was a comment that was published last pm, censored, and resubmitted this am. Curiouser and curiouser....

Well, Sweden is said to begin deportations:

http://www.germanimmigration.eu/

Here is his prior article. Read the comments.

I really do NOT put it past Obama to offer for Europe to 'deport' them ALL here....

Egghead said...

Censors are back!

Egghead said...

Anyway, commenters on that site do NOT believe Sweden will really deport anyone....

Egghead said...

Additionally, commenters say that European newspapers erase comments with links to negative info about immigration.

Great comment by solvent green here:

I'm suspicious of statements by the authorities of starting deportations. Don't believe a word. There may be a few, but the bulk will not be going back to Islamic countries, for the simple reason that they are here as the spearhead of subjugating Christian Europe. The authorities know they have to to say something or the people will revolt. Hence these statements to beguile and assure a restless public.

What the EU has done is Immanentize hell in Europe.

Thanks once again Hesperado for expanding the mind.

Well, I am on a censorship list that almost always deletes my initial comments as well as other comments.

Always makes them appear to me as if the comments are published.

Sometimes the comments ARE really published (I always check now) and then disappear shortly or later.

The above post is that same old Muslim obfuscation when they are in minority intent on dawa. However, once the Infidel has been made to submit, allah will no longer be the same as God.

It's also a Switcheroo performed by Dawists: subtly redefine the God of the Other (whom they have not yet conquered) such that the parlor trick of pulling a Same God out of a hat amazes the audience (most of whom are already halfway there with their Inter-Faith Seminars in the Abrahamic Family). The redefinition of the God of the People of the Book began with the inception of Islam. It was a theological act of supremacist piracy: using the symbolisms & worldview of your enemy to construct your empire against them -- crucially supplemented by waves of ultra-violence.

Great stuff.
"Abrahamic Family" was the first ruse adopted by Islam apologists.

PS: What does the picture in the thread "It must be true; therefore it is" allude to.

It alludes to Hans Christian Anderson's story "the Emperor's New Clothes" - to quote the old Danny Kaye song "the King is in the altogether".

Hesp also alludes to the story in the last paragraph of the post you mention, with Frank Gaffney as the desperate mug who has convinced himself that pseudo-reformer Zudhi Jasser really is an islamic reformer despite Jasser's "new clothes" being no more than the usual muslim reformer's "body butter" of bullshit evasions and lies.

G is CFR. He knows the score - and attempts to convince everyone else that wrong is right. Wiki leaks showed that the powers that be know the score about Islam. They know that Muslims are completely untrustworthy. The simplest answer is a straight line. If we know it, they know it. Merkel knows EXACTLY what she is doing to Germany using Muslims. Men who are called boys. Thugs who are called refugees. Everyone who has eyes can see.

DP111, yes Richard James is correct, thanks
