Gates of Vienna Attacks Robert Spencer
Following Robert Spencer’s post about the need for the anti-jihad movement to reject white nationalists and racialists, fascist sympathizer Dymphna of Gates of Vienna launches an amazingly sleazy attack on Spencer in the comments to his post: Jihad Watch: Why the anti-jihad resistance is not about race.
That is an impressive list of speaking engagements. I would presume you were paid some fee for speaking and travel expenses for each of these venues? There is nothing dishonorable in that; a man must support himself and his family. If he has some expertise in an area that people want to hear about, then student activity fees will fund speeches.
Those who have chosen to join organizations to meet and plan ways to effectively counter the jihadists in the West also pay speakers for their time and travel. But that is an expense on top of our own travel costs. We do this just because we know it is vital that *someone* do something beyond merely “watch.”
The watching part of the fight is no longer the central point. As people develop expertise and learn to ignore the nay-sayers, the second generation of fighters is coming along.
If we have to wait for our allies to be lily-pure, then we can’t even support our own political parties when they leave people like Senator Byrd firmly in place. Just to name one.
It is fine for the first generation to stick with first generation activities. But the duty of the second generation in this conflict is to actively resist. Whether they have the blessing of the first generation theorists or not, they will continue to meet, to plan, and to act.
Things are evolving and there is no time to waste.
