Baron Bodissey

Science Fiction Grandmaster Jack Vance recently passed away, and I noted in a previous article his influence on Gary Gagyx. He has also influenced Gene Wolfe, whose SHADOW OF THE TORTURER series is an extended homage to him.

But there is one other influence I would be remiss not to mention. not only graces the chapter headings of Jack Vance’s masterwork, the Demon Princes series (also known as the Count of Montechristo in Space) but has taken up his pen against the contumacious mass-idiocy of our day, the suicidal, nay, hysterical desire of our elite not to recognize the threat of Jihad, nor to take up arms against it.

They are more afraid of Christians, and quake in terror at night, hiding under their beds, expecting at any moment riots, mass killings, the Inquisition, and the burning of heretics, nay, the stoning of unbelievers. This is because they are members of societies whose moral code and expectations were set by Christendom, and they know they eroded and destroyed that moral code for frivolous reasons. The consciences haunt them, and a desire for suicide rises within them, because they would rather die than admit they were wrong, rather die than give up their drugs and whores, rather die than make rational judgments, rather die than think. If they think, they truth might confront them.

Because they are panicked with fear that the screaming mob of Christians will being throwing homosexuals off buildings, throwing acid in the face of schoolgirls, stoning rape victim to death, the elite placates, whitewashes, lies, and aids and abets the Mohammedans who actually do these things. So they placate the Mohammedans, which rewards and encourages them, and they hide the truth from the West to the best of their ability, which disarms and lulls them. They are more afraid of an imaginary danger than a real one. So they encourage and increase the real danger, and lash out in panic at the false one.

Thank heavens there are some voices of sanity raised against this madness. The Baron is one of them. I strongly urge all readers to put him on their daily reading lists.

Here he speaks of what he does and why:

Excerpt below the cut:

I recently agreed to be interviewed as a part of a British university research project on European populism. After I requested that the researcher define the term “far-right”, he decided to remove it from the question. The removal of the term left no undefined “loaded” words or phrases in the questions, so I began writing my responses.

That was the same day the riots began in Stockholm. A few days later Fusilier Lee Rigby was beheaded on the street in Woolwich. Those two incidents — which obviously bear on the academic research being done into the rise of “Islamophobia” — caused me to postpone further work on the answers until the crisis abated.

I finally finished my replies today, and have sent them off to the researcher. Writing them was a time-consuming task, but an interesting one, given the context: a research project at a major university funded by Multicultural Progressive money and almost certainly intended to arrive at a predetermined Progressive Multicultural conclusion.

There is no way to “win” this encounter with the academic establishment, no matter what I might write. The political-academic game is rigged, and has been for a number of decades. The conclusions in the final report might as well have been written before the questionnaires were sent out. In broad outline, we all know what the report’s authors will say about the dangers of violent “far-right” “xenophobic” “bigoted” “extremists”. We have good reason to expect that this paper will help justify the continuing crackdown on “Islamophobia” and become yet another nail in coffin of our civil liberties.

So why bother answering the questions at all? As I explained in an earlier post, my goal is to force transparency on the process. Policy-makers will eventually see the results of this research, but here at Gates of Vienna they may find a record of how it was done. Here they will see the questions and answers that helped generate the conclusions reached in the research.
