Chesterton’s prophesy

In 1910 G. K. Chesterton published The Flying Inn, a novel telling of a Muslim stealth-conquest of England aided by a treacherous British political class. Then it was probably regarded as quaint – everyone knew the enemy was Prussian militarism. Chesterton saw further. In his story culture-war prepares the way for military conquest.

    Holy shit…1910?! That’s absolutely brilliant.
    Wonder if the book’s being reprinted?
    That predates oil in the ME, the fall of the Ottoman Empire, the fall of Czarist Russia, Communism, the rise of the USA as the preeminent World power.
    The guys a Time Lord; the only explanation.

    The writer sure has our number;

    “The peculiar child-man Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, with a statement distinguished by its utter meaninglessness, pronounced: ‘We know that Canada’s strength comes from our diversity, and we will not be cowed by those who seek to divide us or promote fear.’ Meanwhile a Canadian mosque website links to one calling for jihad against Jews, the ‘people of treachery.’”

    Compel the mosques and “charities” to account for every red cent they process, stop welfare and free housing, problem solved.

    • Better still, close all Mosques and all Islamic centers. Make Islam illegal and deport all Muslims. Then problem will really be solved.

    So are they going to burn every copy in Europe now? Topple every monument to Chesterton?
