Culture vs. Race

Reader comment on item: How Ukrainian Refugees Could Inadvertently Erase the West

Submitted by Robert (United States), Jul 10, 2022 at 23:10

Dear Dr. Daniel Pipes,

I think you are slightly too generous to those who scream "racism." Alleging Racism is often a smokescreen for those who wish to spread their Religion, or un-Western and Un-Democratic ways.

Let's begin our discussion with the the decline Western Civilization in Europe. I am thinking of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. It was not the "dark-skinned" people who over-ran Civilized Europe, but the "pure white race" of the Gernan hords from the North. It is these "white people" who were responsible to a great extent for the so-called DARK AGES in Europe.

There is also another overlooked issue here. The most dangerous enemy of Western Civilization after WWII was RUSSIA in the form of the Soviet Union under Stalin. Now the Soviet Union Russia has vanished, but it has been replaced by the Russian Federation under Their Ruler Putin - there is a movement in Russia to change the American title of "President" with the Russian Autocratic title of "Ruler." What many do not see in all this is the fact this this is on one level a European Civil War; it is the West vs. the East again. And the Ukrainians are the Westerners fleeing the attack of Asiatic Russian, not European Russia.

Furthermore, all these other non-European countries are NEUTRAL when it comes to siding with the West or with Russia. This is something you overlooked, which is very important. For example, how many India's Indians, or Pakistanis are there in Western Europe? Yet how many side with Western Europe against Russia? How many non-Western countries clearly support Western Ukraine and Western Europe and the United States, etc., against Asiatic and Autocratic Russia? The feeling Ukrainians, on the other hand, support NATO and the European Union because the Values and Democratic Culture is the same. Naturally, therefore, the Europeans and Ukrainians are the same People struggling for their lives, and Way of Life. This is not the case with the SQUAD - those 4 Democratic Politicians in the USA who represent better the ways of their failed-states (non-European) from which they hail.
