This is going to be longish, please let me indulge your patience. There are lessons from History here that no school will teach you in these degenerate days, that I hope are broken down from their natural complex and esoteric level to the easy to grasp. And hopefully easy for you to use when arguing with leftists.
The two greatest threats to Western Civilization in our time are islam and socialism. Socialism being born of the impulse of laziness within the West, islam coming from without.
Two things have to happen for a Great Superpower like the United States to fall. One has to be internal, the other external. Both pressures have to be applied simultaneously to break the natural inertia of such a state to continue to exist by the inertia of mass alone.
In the case of the Roman Empire, the best known and most studied collapse of a Historical Superpower, the two forces of internal collapse (caused by sloth) and external pressure (Germanic Barbarian invaders) reached the critical point in the early 5th Century. At the start of the 5th Century, the Roman Empire would appear to be as resilient as ever, having lost little territory due to the many internal crises of the third and fourth centuries. There seemed to be little reason to suggest that it wouldn’t survive the equally challenging 5th Century. But in less then 80 years it would be gone outside the East (which would endure almost another thousand years after the fall of the West, to the mid 15th Century.
Roman Empire in 400
Roman Empire in 475
What happened over the next year wasn’t so much a dramatic fall but the elimination of a fiction. The position of Western Roman Emperor had ceased to have any meaning over the previous three decades, and the Gothic barbarian king Odoacer who overthrew the previous puppet master of the Western Emperor simply declined to appoint his own puppet to sit on the throne.
Why did the Western Roman Empire disintegrate so totally in a span of 76 years? And what does this have to do with the United States? AND TURKEY which is what this blog post is supposed to be about?
Simple: The Western Empire ceased to be ROMAN. Much like how large parts of the United States are rapidly ceasing to be AMERICAN. In it’s prime, Roman Citizenship was a privilege that had to be earned through birth or deed. You simply weren’t a Roman because you crossed a border. Many within the Empire were born there but not citizens. To become a Roman Citizen, and as a Duty of BEING a Roman Citizen, you had to serve. In the Legions, for example. During the 3rd Century Crisis, Citizenship was changed to birthright citizenship. And the Legions quickly emptied of fat, lazy Roman Citizens who had built the Empire and itself became increasingly composed of the very Germanic barbarians they were trying to keep from crossing the Rhine and Danube. The inherent fallacy of such a notion is, of course, obvious.
So by the 5th century the Roman Empire in the West (and to a lesser extent in the East which managed to rid itself of the problem by exporting it to the West which is a story for another time) had reached the breaking point. The traditional Roman Citizen was nowhere to be found in the Legions which spoke Germanic languages rather than Latin. What ultimately happened was there were no true Roman Citizens left by 476AD who would bother to safeguard their collapsing civilization. And the German barbarians in the Legions had no reason to continue the fiction of an Empire and civilization that was already long dead. So under their fellow barbarian leaders, they seized what they could take. Though the barbarians of that time did value Roman Civilization and did their best to adapt a form of it to themselves. But it would be another millennium before their own version of Western Civilization would rise from darkness.
So to sum it up, the Roman Empire of the West fell because of sloth of it’s citizen class that built it, combined with the invasion of foreign barbarians. Very much what we have in the United States today. The people who made America aren’t even bothering to have children anymore and are seemingly happy to be replaced by foreigners who have massive numbers of them. We are even ceasing to have a common language. A popular new idea (which isn’t new, the Romans tried this starting in the 3rd Century) is to offer citizenship to foreigners who will serve “in the legions” so to speak.
Now to Turkey (ITS ABOUT TIME!)
It was the Ottoman Turks who extinguished the final ember of the Roman Empire when they consumed the final Anatolian provinces of the Byzantine Empire in the 14th Century and then stood ready to take Constantinople at the beginning of the 15th Century. By the end of the 15th Century the Ottoman Empire controlled the entirety of the Balkans and Anatolia as the Byzantines had in the 11th Century. The Ottoman Empire represented the final great expansion of islam prior to the PostModern Great Islamic Expansion Era of the 21st Century (this is how it will be written in the history books I hate to say) .
The Ottoman Empire at it’s greatest extent, 1566-1699
From that point the Ottoman Empire fell into decline and was pushed back from Vienna which they had besieged twice (1529 and 1683), first after losing a battle in 1699 which was their first great loss of territory in the Balkans. By the 19th Century they were called the “Sick Man of Europe” because they were continually being driven back towards Constantinople (the city was still known by that name at this time) and out of Europe. The European Great Powers were even seizing parts of it. The British Empire took Egypt away in the 1880’s, Russia had seized the Crimea, and was itself kept from finishing the Ottoman Empire by Britain and France which didn’t want Russian control of Constantinople.

This disintegration would only continue. Until the end in 1924 when the final Sultan was deposed by Mufasta Kemal Ataturk.
Revival of the Turkish Empire, Present
Today, Tayyip Erdogan, an islamist, has turned the formerly secular government of Turkey into a dictatorship. He is taking advantage of the recent coup (be it real or a false flag fake staged BY him) to complete the fundamental transformation from the Ataturk Republic into a totalitarian islamic state with the trappings of the Ataturk Republic.
In other words, the worst king of totalitarian state, the kind that is a brutal thuggish dictatorship that pretends to be a Republic.
President Tayyip Erdogan tightened his grip on Turkey on Saturday, ordering the closure of thousands of private schools, charities and other institutions in his first decree since imposing a state of emergency after the failed military coup.
Turkish authorities also detained a nephew of Fethullah Gulen, the U.S.-based Muslim cleric accused by Ankara of orchestrating the July 15 coup attempt, the Anadolu state news agency reported.
A restructuring of Turkey’s once untouchable military also drew closer, with a planned meeting between Erdogan and the already purged top brass brought forward by several days.
The schools and other institutions are suspected by Turkish authorities of having links to Gulen, who has many followers in Turkey. Gulen denies any involvement in the coup attempt in which at least 246 people were killed.
His nephew, Muhammed Sait Gulen, was detained in the northeastern city of Erzurum and will be brought to the capital Ankara for questioning, Anadolu reported. Among possible charges that could be brought against him is membership of a terrorist organization, the agency said.
Thousands, if not millions of Turks who supported Ataturk Secularism will die in the coming months and years if nothing is done. Right in front of the cameras of the Western media. And with the approval of Barack HUSSEIN Obama.
Where can the Erdogan Turkish Empire expand?
I suspect that if left unchecked, the first thing Erdogan will do is seize territory in Syria and Iraq. If not Lebanon, before moving on to Jordan, and yes, Israel. In Europe, the sky is the limit. No continent is becoming islamicized faster than Europe (though Obama is doing his best for North America).
Sadly, our greatest hope right now is for Russia to strike Turkey while Erdogan is still transforming the state. The United States isn’t going to do anything. Not for 6 months. And even then there will be little we can do. It will take years to undo the damage Obama has done to our military.
I don’t want to buy a history book and read of the New Turkish Empire. Which will be a modern islamic state with a Superpower military. Using American hardware, marching into country after country.
In fact, the greatest blow we could strike against Erdogan right now is TO CUT OFF RESUPPLY AND PARTS. Turkey needs to be Embargoed. NOW. But we won’t.
The United States is being destroyed by the same factors mentioned in this post
Socialism is destroying us from within. Citizenship no longer has any value because it’s being given away cheaply to the point it’s meaningless. Islam is the greatest external threat in the world today to us. An external threat that is becoming more and more INTERNAL by the BETRAYAL of the American People by leaders (Like Obama and Clinton) who are importing as many of them as they can. And Turkey is potentially a military power that could unite all islam against us with a military force that could defeat our armies. Especially as they are weakened by socialistic engineering.
If only someone would strive to make America American again. We need President Trump to be our Constantine. Though even Constantine The Great only gave the Romans about 100 more years…
But he’s still Obama’s favorite foreign leader.
A total of 62 students at Kuleli Military school, the oldest such establishment in Istanbul, were collared by Turkish authorities.
Before the coup attempt last week, the pupils, aged between 14 and 17, were made to dress up in camouflage and were handed guns with empty magazines, according to their lawyers.
The children have been taken to prison and not allowed to speak to their parents as they were accused of treason against the Turkish State.
The mum of a 15-year-old boy caught up in the arrest, Emre, while waiting for news outside Istanbul’s Maltepe Prison said: “Our child has never held a gun before.
“They were used, they were forced to do this.”
The Great Turkish Massacre is underway.
Amnesty International says it has ‘credible evidence’ Turkish police are holding detainees, denying them food, water and medical treatment and in the worst cases some have been subjected to severe beatings and torture
John Dalhuisen, Amnesty International’s Europe director, said: “Reports of abuse including beatings and rape in detention are extremely alarming, especially given the scale of detentions that we have seen in the past week.
Turkey should be out of NATO. And there should no longer be ANY question of allowing them into the EU.
