Celebrating Euro-centric violence

While the phenomenon of crime and violence has been headline news in TnT for the past few months, it now becomes imperative to expose the other white side of this issue--- how Europeans reward and celebrate violence.

The fact of the matter is that Euro-America is the numero uno violence and divorce capital among the major western European industrial countries.

Historically, Euro-America became an independent sovereign nation-state through violent armed revolution. The US Constitution also gives citizens the inalienable right to bear arms.

In addition, Americans are driven by aggressive, excessive competition, at times both legal or illegal, in the traditional "survival of the fittest"spirit/mode of Charles Darwin.

And in some instances, society actually celebrates, rewards and praises supposedly white male macho individuals even though they may commit violent acts.

That's the crux of the problem of violence that now plagues the very fabric of American society today.

For example, in 432 A.D., Pope Celestine 1, sent former Euro-British slave named Patrick to convert the people in Ireland. In the name of Christianity, Patrick summarily killed thousands of Irishmen, founded more than 300 churches and baptized more than 120,000 persons.

He also introduced the Roman alphabet and Latin literature into Ireland. As a reward for those brutal, violent acts against innocent people of Ireland, the Vatican made Patrick a Saint and today millions of Irish-Americans celebrate these violent acts of Patrick on "St. Patrick's Day"--- his annual feast day on 17th March. This is Euro-centric insanity.

To the average Euro-Irish-American who dresses in green, wears shamrocks and marches in parades, this infamous day commemorates the myth of the man who drove the "snakes" out of Ireland.

What most people fail to realize is that the "snakes" St. Patrick drove into the sea were not the "snakes" that crawled on the ground, but the "snakes" who walked on two feet and were once known as Druids--- they were human beings. This is Euro-centric violent insanity.

In 333 B.C., a 24-year old Greek warrior named Alexander defeated the Persian army of Darius 111, then violently murdered and enslaved thousands of people.

In 332 B.C., he then militarily/violently "liberated" Egypt. Yet, in Euro-American history books, he is celebrated and rewarded for these violent acts as "Alexander the Great."

Euro-America also celebrates the genocidal, murderous and violent acts Christopher Columbus (the world's first serial killer) committed against the Caribs and Arawaks in the Caribbean and against the original Americans (now called "native Americans" under European supremacy). Europeans are the "native Americans", for real.

As a reward for these violent acts against humanity, Euro-America celebrates "Columbus Day" on 10th October every year. This is Euro-centric violent insanity.

On the other hand, it is no secret that the Euro-American Founding Fathers, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, were slave owners. In fact, although he signed the Emancipation Proclamation to free the slaves in 1865, the record shows that, in reality, Abraham Lincoln never freed his own slaves.

Yet, for these violent acts against humanity (African slaves-human beings) , Euro-America celebrates "Lincoln's Birthday" on 12th February and "President's Day" on 21st February every year.

Indeed, Abraham Lincoln was once quoted as saying on 18 September 1858 that:

"I will say, that I am not, nor have I ever been in favour of brining about in any way, the social and political equality of the white and black races.

That I am not nor ever have been in favour of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people.

And I will say in addition to this, that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And in as much as they cannot so live, while they do remain together, there must the position of superior and inferior and I as much as any man am in favour of having the superior position assigned to the white race."

This is Euro-American supremacist racism at its ultimate zenith coming from above.

Moreover, in a May 2004 study titled "Violence in Society", Kerby Anderson of Probe Ministries, opines: "How life has changed" in Euro-America. She concludes that:

"A 1994 poll found more than half the children questioned said they were afraid of violent crime against them or a family member. Well, it turns out this is not some irrational fear based upon a false perception of danger. Life has indeed become more violent and more dangerous for children (in Euro-America). The innocence of childhood has been replaced by the very real threat of violence."

In terms of children's exposure to violent crimes, she finds that:

"A child's exposure to violence is pervasive. Children see violence in their schools, their neighbourhoods and their homes. The daily news is rife with reports of child molestations and abductions.

Television in the home is the greatest source of visual violence for children (a la TnT). The average child watches 8,000 televised murders and 100,000 acts of violence before finishing elementary school. That number more than doubles by the time he or she reaches age 18."

Her major, indefensible conclusion of violence in Euro-America is:

"Violence is the scourge of our society" a la TnT.

The bottom-line is that violence in all its forms is uncivilised and Euro-America cannot continue to call itself a civilized society while all these uncivilised violent acts are being constantly committed, celebrated and rewarded.

In the final analysis, it must be clearly understood that within the context of European supremacy, when violence has a European connection then that makes it legit.

Ergo, since 1969, when Europeans from the Roman Catholic Irish Republican Army (IRA) killed, murdered and assassinated about 3,200 fellow Europeans , including innocent women and children from Northern Ireland and England and injured nearly 40,000, that human carnage is not called "White on White crime"; instead, it is labeled simply as "Sectarian violence", "Communal violence", "fatal attacks" or "campaign of terror."It is legit, a civilized act.

In addition, in November 1995, when Europeans, Serbs, in Bosnia-Herzegovina savagely killed, tortured and mutilated over 250,000 fellow Europeans, raped 21,000 women (some aged 80 years old and children 6 years old) and placed 90,000 in detention/concentration camps, these violent acts are not described as "White on White crime"; instead, they are mildly called "ethnic cleansing."They are legit, civilized acts.

And to complete the European supremacist cycle of celebrated/rewarded violence, when the Western European nations fought against the Central European powers between 1914-1918, these global violent acts are celebrated in history books as "World War 1".

When the Western European allied nations' forces fought against the Eastern European Axis powers between 1939-1945, these global violent acts are celebrated in history books as "World War 11."

However, on the flip side, when Black South Africans or African-Americans killed each other, suddenly these violent acts are described all over the global media as "Black on Black crime." They are not legit; they are uncivilised acts committed by an uncivilised people.

Europeans, give me a break please!.
