In Europe and the US, Elites Who Live by Lies Despise the Little People Who Don’t

Kevin Crehan was de facto executed in Britain for mocking Muslims.

By John Zmirak Published on January 2, 2017

Kevin Crehan is dead at 35. He perished as an enemy of the British state, the victim of de facto judicial murder. Crehan was in prison for a tasteless prank: offended perhaps by the aggressive demands of immigrant Muslims in Britain for the imposition of sharia law, Crehan left a bacon sandwich on the front steps of a mosque. For that he was sentenced to one year in a prison full of violent Muslim criminals who knew about his prank, with no protective custody. (The cause of his death is still unclear.)

In a bitter twist, Julian Lambert, the judge who sentenced Crehan for his crime, in 2015 gave a sentence of only two years to a member of a pedophile rape gang that preyed on toddlers and a baby. So in 2017, that baby rapist will be a free man, while Kevin Crehan, Englishman, sleeps in the English earth.


Kevin Crehan

Alexander Solzhenitsyn didn’t live to see this travesty, but a close reading of his works would have allowed you to predict it. The Gulag Archipelago, a masterful work of memory, exposed a vast empire of falsehood, injustice, and cruelty — all carefully masked by puffed-up rationalizations and defended by Western intellectuals who lived comfortably far from its labor camps and psychiatric prisons.

Solzhenitsyn’s book with a deft stroke exposed the messianic cult of Marxism, and doomed the Soviet system. Shortly before Solzhenitsyn was expelled from his native country, he begged his fellow citizens to engage in a simple, prophetic act of resistance: to “live not by lies.”

By contrast, the de facto leader of the European Union, Germany’s Angela Merkel, took to the airwaves for New Year’s to deliver the opposite message, to repeat the governing lie which guides EU elites, and demand that Germans live by it. The woman who single-handedly delivered the continent of Europe to the tender mercies of rape mobs, who flooded its cities with unemployable foreigners who flock to extremist mosques and are infiltrated by ISIS, addressed her bewildered citizens. As Breitbart reports:

In the federal chancellor’s New Year address to Germany, Merkel asserted that the terror attacks committed by Islamist migrants in Würzburg, Ansbach, and recently at a Christmas market in Berlin were not attacks on Western civilisation but an attack on ‘refugees’ and Germany’s willkommenskultur (‘welcome culture’).

She stated terrorists “mock [the willingness of Germany to help] with their deeds [acts of terrorism], like they mock those who really need and deserve our protection.”

Adding that it is “particularly bitter and repulsive” when terrorist attacks are committed by migrants, Merkel pushed back against criticism of her unwavering commitment to mass migration, saying that Germany will fight the “hatred” of terrorism with “humanity” and “unity.”

“With the images of bombed-out Aleppo in Syria, it is important to remember once again how important and correct it was that our country has helped in the past year those who need our protection,” she said.

Acknowledging that Islamic terrorism is the biggest test for Germany, Merkel hinted at new security measures for the year ahead – but not at changes to her open-door mass migration policies.

Over one million unvetted migrants from the Middle East and Africa entered Germany alone at Merkel’s invitation, including potentially hundreds of Islamic State fighters and bringing with them the risk of the terror organisation weaponising migrants already in the country.

Asserting that “[the] state is doing everything to ensure its citizens’ security in freedom,” the chancellor said that in the midst of mourning for the dead and injured in these “difficult days,” Germans should seek “consolation” in each other.

Merkel closed her speech, which will be broadcast Saturday, by asserting that Germans need “openness” and “an open view of the world.” She stated she had “confidence” for 2017 – this New Year confidence an extension of her “Wir schaffen das” (“we can do this”) mantra.

The Captive Mind of the Ideologue

Nothing can penetrate the mind of an ideologue. It’s a hypobaric chamber — hermetically sealed, locked off by a thousand logical fallacies and willful refusals of reason. Soviet leaders knew perfectly well for decades that their people were battered and crushed, toiling miserably in pursuit of a hopeless utopia. But they kept on droning out speeches which promised a glorious future, which “proved” from the crabbed arithmetic of Marx’s fatuous arguments that socialism could dissolve human selfishness in the acid bath of coercion.

None of the violence that’s afflicting Europe’s cities, none of the terrorist attacks, none of the strutting demands for sharia by imams scamming European welfare, can make the slightest dent in Merkel’s iron pate.

None of the violence and intimidation of women that’s afflicting Europe’s cities, none of the terrorist attacks conducted by “refugees” or barely foiled by harried security services, none of the strutting demands for sharia by imams scamming European welfare payments, can make the slightest dent in Merkel’s iron pate. Her politics are as delusional as those of the poor mental patient who rocks back and forth in a corner, convinced he’s the queen of Portugal. But unlike him, Merkel is culpable. She knows what she is doing. She must know.

Merkel and the EU elites, and the bishops and pastors, academics and bureaucrats who back that mad agenda, are united by a powerful governing vision, strong enough to insulate them from any argument or data. Like Marxism, that vision projects a shiny kaleidoscope of colorful, idealist fantasies. But its beating heart is hatred. As Marxists despise and scheme to destroy the thrifty farmer, the hard-working shop owner, and the friar who serves the poor, so globalists hate, from the depths of their bones, the bulk of their countrymen:

  • Patriotic veterans who cling to their nation’s sovereignty, remembering how the Germans (for instance) once marched in and terrorized them.
  • Women who expect to dress and act as they see fit, regardless of the jeers and threats of the mobs of welfare-dependent Salafists who now haunt the streets of their cities.
  • Overworked taxpayers who wonder why half their paychecks are confiscated, while foreigners lounge around on public assistance.
  • Christian refugees from the Middle East, who escaped Muslim persecution in their native lands, only to fear such attacks now in Sweden or Belgium.
  • Ordinary people who expect that the mores and culture, songs and creeds and customs, of their home country can prevail without constant vituperation and periodic terror attacks by angry, aggressive aliens.

The Government has Dissolved the People and Chosen a New One

The current rulers of Europe detest the Kevin Crehans whom they are governing, with all the white-knuckled fury that Hillary Clinton felt for “deplorable” U.S. voters. So those rulers have chosen to dissolve the people, and import a new one. Elaborate schemes will protect those countries’ policies from “populist” resistance, and shield the haughty governors from the benighted hordes whom they govern. The secret police in Germany will monitor social media to crack down on “hate speech”— defined as speech that diverges from official government policy. (See this couple sentenced to prison and fines in Bavaria for opposing the influx of refugees — and this German policeman threatened with a fine of three months’ wages for calling Merkel’s policies “insane” at a public political rally.)

In the U.S., Trump’s win slowed, if only a little, the crackdown by America’s Angela Merkels against our Kevin Crehans. They will go on suppressing the free speech of conservatives on campus, and trying to ruin the livelihoods of those who attend evangelical churches or run Christian businesses. But perhaps, for the next four years at least, the full power of the U.S. federal government will not be turned against ordinary people for believing common-sense things. We must make the most of that time, an unbought grace God granted us, to steel ourselves and our families to the task that lies before us: To live not by lies.

    History records the willful blindness of bureaucrats who like junkies slobbering over the next fix exonerating themselves in the face of their self inflicted wounds perpetuate the fraud that has seized their imaginations & abrogate any hope of reason & rationality. Such is the case so clearly outlined before us by Mr. Zmriak. Only those from whom “the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ” emanates to any degree can more fully grasp the spiritual battle that has darkened the hearts of those already somewhat distanced from that light. “Professing themselves to be wise …”

    “…globalists hate, from the depths of their bones, the bulk of their countrymen…”
    In a nutshell.

    • JRG10

      I’m constantly puzzled by the hate for their own countrymen (they allow young German girls to be raped and then claim their motivation is “compassion”?)
      Also, why is there never any talk of fighting the cause of all these refugees. Attack the source of the problem! As the commenter Howard mentioned, this is a serious spiritual battle. The enemy intent against God helped by some like minded ideologues and many useful idiots. How common sense is hidden or silenced makes the world seem upside down.

        It i indeed shocking that people allow their fellows to be enslaved!

        White American Christians allowed Black American Christians to be enslaved and took slaves themselves! HIDEOUS!

        White American Christians participated in brutal lynchings of Black American Christians that often involved sexual torture, burning, before killing them, and later mutilation including sexual mutilation of the bodies. EXTREME PERVERTS!

        White American Christians participate in continuing White Supremacy. IDOLATORS AGAINST GOD’S SOVEREIGNTY!

        Americans are allowing themselves to be deceived into the thrall of SATANIC LORD PUTIN who wants to be WORLD LORD to enslave all Americans. WILLING SLAVES TO SATAN!


        • Nunyadambizness

          As to the slavery references, it’s going on 200 years now since slavery was abolished in the US, shall we bring up all of the historic slave trades in recorded history to use as examples as well? Egyptian slaves, Greek and Roman slaves, etc., ? I think not. As to your references to Putin, while I am no fan of his, I certainly wouldn’t call him a “Satanic Lord”–been watching too much Star Wars, maybe?

      • Wayne Cook

        It’s easy. There are at least four ME states which fund it…along with our own CIA. The agenda is to clean the ME of Christians and Jews…again.

    • galatians328

      Well said, of hyperbolic. WE have – for DECADES – groaned at Americans who trust and respect Corporate Capitalists, Big Corporations – like the Trump organization! and the like – that LOVE their profits MORE than Americans! Who LOVE their billionaire privileges, tax loopholes, and lustful lifestyles MORE than Americans! WHO build factories and HOTELS overseas – lie the Trump organization! and the lie – rather than building them all in America! Who LOVE to hire overseas workers to make stuff – like most of Trump organization stuff! – rather than hiring only Americans! WE have been aghast that so many Americans have not called Trump and his family for his HIDEOUS HATRED of AMERICANS – shown in their DEEDS truly, rather than by their LYING TONGUES! … AND we have been shaken – and cried out to God! – realizing that Trump and his family and team are ready to blow in allegiance to the SATANIC LORD PUTIN who wants to become WORLD LORD, in order to destroy America and to make Americans slaves!

    The finest, snottiest prigs the Catholic Church has to offer have been putting out statements about Donald Trump, the racist, misogynist xenophobe. One would never guess from their homilies and press releases that Trump had just defeated the worst abortion fanatic in history. The Catholic people–many of them–woke up and realized they needed the billionaire playboy with the three trophy wives to protect them from the moral putrefaction and intellectual dishonesty of their Pope and bishops.

    • Jennifer Hartline

      No. We simply understood that we could never allow Hillary Clinton to take control of the nation. And by God’s grace, we’ve been spared her horrible reign.

      • VisPacem

        Frankly, most Catholics I know realized the only way to avoid Hillary Clinton and her “horrible reign” was to ignore the ideologically inspired calumnies being promoted by too many prelates and clerics to mention, just as Mr. McGowan stated.

    • galatians328

      WOW! The Stream has been preaching that 2017 has been summoned by God to be a year of Christian unity. Calling Roman Catholics ‘snotty prigs’ and their leader a ‘moral putrefaction’ will go a long way toward God’s aim of Christian unity … NOT!

      And some miscreant in here keeps calling Anabaptists nasty names …. and we are not even Anabaptists! …. but know, respect, and know how faithful they are to the Lord Jesus Christ.

      Hopefully The Stream will punch up their prayers for unity!

  • Rick Hasty

    It is not new to realize when truth is extracted, the void will be consumed by anunending stream of lies….and lies become the new norm. Truth is seen as a distraction from the new moral agenda. It’s hard to imagine President Trump as the savior of the truth, but this brief wave of hope in slowing down the new era elitist moralism will at least give the conservative forces a breather.

    Let us hope we evangelicals will take courage and seek to spread the real truth in the open atmosphere of the next four years. It may be short lived, so let’s get to work “for the day is short.”

    Excellent and True. Live FREE.

  • Patmos

    “this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.” -The Apostle John

    When Hillary called Trump supporters “deplorable” the more stunning and revealing aspect of her statement was that she also called them “irredeemable”. For Christ says ALL are redeemable, and that the only unforgivable sin is blasphemy against The Holy Ghost. Whether she knew it or not, Hillary was acting in the spirit of antichrist. Not saying she IS the antichrist, but look at John’s statement from thousands of years ago: “even now already is it in the world”.

    It’s funny to hear the globalists speak, like Merkel and even Pope Francis (sorry Catholics, but surely you must know by now), because they use language that sort of resembles scripture and so is pleasing to a degree but really is in fact just a watered down version void of power and authority with little if any mention of God or his son. For Paul noted in his letter to the Romans that when you remove God from your knowledge you are given over to a reprobate mind to do things which are abominable. Furthermore Jesus warned about following the blind, saying if the blind follow the blind both will fall into a ditch.

    I don’t know what other plea to make. Have they not heard our report?

  • daisy

    None of these comments have anything to do with Kevin Crehan

  • Nunyadambizness

    In my opinion, Marxism and Islam are rooted in the same source–Satan. These evil philosophies have murdered approximately 200 MILLION people in the past 130+ years, and continue to murder and rape, abuse, molest, etc., to this day. Merkel is a true believing globalist, as is Barry Obozo, Hitlary, John Kerry, the Bush family, etc., and will not give up the idea of a world utopia run by them.

    John, this is one of your most powerful columns, and that’s saying something.
