In all fairness—to me—I’ve been saying this all along. I’ve been warning about the dangers of a feminized culture, of a feminist-dominant culture that is unremittingly hostile to men and to masculine virtues. I’ve been saying that Europe’s problem with immigration, its shameful willingness to allow foreign men to rape, assault and molest its women is a logical consequence of the feminist attacks on manliness.
Now, a famous Danish columnist, one Iben Thranholm makes the same point, vigorously.
Pundits and politicians assure the public that refugee males now storming the gates of Europe from the Middle East, Northern Africa and Central Asia will be required to learn that Western women are independent and sexually liberated. Such arguments, however, are obviously too weak to have any impact on the male cultures representative of certain refugee groups.
To these individuals, strong European women are ‘easy’ and easy victims; they have respect only for strong men – and strong men aren't exactly thick on the ground in Europe.
The deficiency of masculinity in European culture renders it impotent in the face of the political and cultural chaos that has escalated along with growing immigration.
I would add one qualifier here. The male cultures that are represented in the tidal wave of immigrants are failed cultures, cultures whose men have failed in competition, have failed in combat and who have failed to provide for their families.
Europe’s feminized men are being overpowered by men who are reduced to showing off their ersatz manliness by abusing the wives and daughters of the men who have over time out-competed them.
It reminds one of Palestinian terrorism against Israel. Since Palestinians seem incapable of building anything of value, they can only assert their power by deconstructing what the Israelis have built. It is ignominious, but it appeals to the weak feminists of Europe. One notes that Europe's feminized cultures consistently blame Israel for the problem with the Palestinians and seem especially torqued that the Israelis have not yet surrendered.
One notes that the immigrant men do not think that the strength differential between men and women is a social construct. They are not impressed by the fact that everyone in the decadent West has learned never to talk of a woman without saying that she is strong and empowered. Somehow or other, calling women strong and empowered does not make them as strong as Muslim immigrant men.
Instead of a single-minded focus on imposing liberal feminist values on Muslim males, it might well be much more beneficial for Europeans to consider if the feminist war on masculinity might be the underlying cause of the weakness of European culture - feeble and defenseless as it is - against the culture of immigrants and refugees. The irony is that the vacuum feminism has created means that women become victims of an aggressive male culture.
Feminized cultures are unwilling to fight. They are unwilling to defend themselves. They try to soothe the savage immigrants with kindness and indulgence:
The massive feminization of culture has had a major impact on politics. The prevailing ideology of Western liberal democracy is secular humanism, which is particularly feminine in character. Policy, especially as applied to immigrants, is a motherly embrace of goodness and overbearing indulgence. One could also interpret it as naivety, weakness and accommodation. As the refugee crisis erupted and overwhelmed Europe, its political leaders - spearheaded by German Chancellor Angela Merkel - acted like timid mother hens, not as strong men responsible for guarding their country from an invasion…
The feminine approach threatens to throw society into chaos and outright collapse because the rule of law and its enforcement are made subject to the priorities of care, understanding and inclusion. The shortage of masculine virtues affects society and the political system. The shortage of masculine virtues is the underlying cause of the immigration problems.
Of course, this feminine approach is based in ideology. The leftist ideologues who control the marketplace of ideas believe that violence is caused by oppression, that violence is a just punishment for colonialist and imperialist aggressions and that if only white men stop oppressing the rest of the world everyone will live in peace and harmony.
Ironically, Thranholm says that the feminized and feminist Europe is acting like a battered woman:
At the moment, Europe resembles a woman who allows herself to be battered and abused by her man. Like many battered women, she tries to cover her man's violations, makes excuses for him, and returns to him time after time.
