LIBERALS CRY RACISM TO SILENCE DEMOGRAPHIC WINTER DOCUMENTARY

An article entitled The 'Right' Babies' by Kathryn Joyce condemns the documentary Demographic Winter and attempts to silence all demographic truth tellers by labeling them racists and invoking the need for ever-more multiculturalism.

Joyce ascribes "devious" and conspiratorial motives to the documentary's producers and claims they are only trying to re-Christianize the Western world. Most telling of all, Joyce remains silent in the face of statistics and hard evidence presented in the film. Thus the only recourse liberal demographic-deniers have is to silence the truth-tellers by condemning them as racist scare-mongers.

Liberals seem to have no problem however engaging in scare-mongering with respect to the psuedo-science of global warming. They care more for the planet and the availability of their favorite contraception and means of abortion than they do for the survival of mankind.

Further, the liberal pursuit of utopian multi-cultural harmony only works in textbooks and in their own

THE FIRST MUSLIM-BORN HEAD OF STATE MAY BE IN AMERICA--NOT EUROPE

Great mystery surrounds Barack Hussein Obama's religious beliefs and upbringing. I do not know what is worse --that he may be a Muslim apostate or that he could turn out to be a professing Muslim. While the Islamization threat is much more apparent in Europe due to immigration and dismal birth rates, the average American feels much more insulated and seemingly has the luxury of ignoring the reality of the danger that Islam poses to the entire Western world (despite 9-11). So many long to believe that the problem lies with the radical elements in Islam rather than with the religion itself. This ignorance could make America just as vulnerable to Muslim domination as Europe.

From Mr Thomas Landon via Brussels Journal: "If I had been asked two months ago “Which Western country runs the greatest risk of electing a Muslim-born leader and how soon do you think this is going to happen?” I would have bet on the Netherlands somewhere in the next decade. Today, it looks as if the first Western country with a Muslim-born leader might very well be the United States next year, when President Barack Hussein Obama enters the Oval Office."

"Perhaps Mr. Obama strikes the Europeans as the “most European candidate” because he was born a Muslim. If America can have a Muslim-born leader, why not Europe, many Europeans will ask. They know that the latter is “unavoidable” (to use the archbishop of Canterbury’s words). In America, Mr. Obama’s Muslim family background (unlike Mr. Romney’s Mormonism) is a non-issue because he attends a Christian church. Nevertheless, being born from a Muslim father, raised by a Muslim stepfather, having been enrolled at Read More...

DEMOGRAPHIC WINTER --NO LONGER A MATTER OF OPINION

A new documentary entitled "Demographic Winter the Decline of the Human Family" explores the worldwide demographic decline and is based upon interviews with academics, scholars, researchers, elected officials and civil and religious leaders from more than 30 countries. Demographic Winter is soon to be released and the trailer can be seen here.

According to the website:

"Worldwide, birth rate have been halved in the past 50 years. There are now 59 nations, with 44% of the world's population with below replacement fertility.

"Sometime in this century, the world's population will begin to decline. At a certain point the decline will become rapid. We may even reach population free-fall in our lifetimes.

"For some countries population decline is already a reality. Russia is losing three-quarters-of-a-million people a year. Its population (currently 145 million) is expected to fall by one-third by 2050."

"If present low birth rates persist, the European Union estimates there will be a continent-wide shortfall of 20 million workers by 2030.

"Who will operate the factories and farms in the Europe of the future? Who will develop the natural resources? Where will Russia find the soldiers to guard the frontiers of the largest nation on earth?

"Who will care for a graying population? A burgeoning elderly population combined with a shrinking work force will lead to a train wreck for state pension systems."

"While governments should make child-rearing easier, by lowering the tax-burden on families (out of self-interest if not fairness) cash incentives do not work."

THE DEPOPULATION OF EAST GERMANY

Historically and traditionally a woman got married and raised her children. Now thanks to feminism and socialism a woman leaves her picturesque village in search of career and fortune. But even when the woman finds her fortune and her handsome prince in the city she still is not ready to embark on motherhood due to the brainwashing she has undergone at the hands of feminists and socialists. Even cash incentives, and free daycare can't tear her away from her government subsidized packet of birth control pills. The only thing which could bring back the deadened maternal instinct in the West is the rebirth of Catholicism--which is the lone voice in the wilderness that condemns artificial birth control and truly reveres the God-given role of women in society.

Excerpts from
GUARDIAN: "Martin Schiller has a problem familiar to many 17-year-old boys: not enough girls. Schiller's difficulties, however, are not of his making. Nature has not been kind to him. Not in terms of his looks, but his birthplace.

"For his home town of Königstein, a cluster of red-roofed traditional buildings tucked in a picturesque bend of the Elbe river beneath a giant 700-year-old castle, has recently been revealed to have the biggest demographic imbalance of anywhere in Europe between young men and women.

"On Saturday nights, there is a party at Königstein's youth club. 'We have to get the girls to come from Pirna,' says Schiller, referring to the nearest major town, 10 miles distant. Or even, he says, from Dresden, a 40-minute drive away across the rolling, wooded, depopulated Saxon countryside.

"The reason for the imbalance, he adds, is simple: 'The job opportunities

BECOMING A DHIMMI NATION--AUSTRIAN BIRTH RATE IN DEATH SPIRAL


As
Austria muzzles politicians who speak the truth about the growing Islamization of Europe, the recent statistics on the Austrian birth rate do not lie. With a birth rate of 1.3 births per woman in 2006, Austria was previously thought to be on the brink of the death spiral but officials are now reporting a continued decline in the birth rate for 2007.

There were 69,245 births in Austria during the first eleven months of 2007--which represents a 2.4 per cent drop from the prior year (or 1,674 fewer births).

Top that off with the fact that 38 percent of all births from December, 2006 through November, 2007 were to unwed mothers, up from 37.2 percent from the prior year.

By the way --Austrian politician Susanne Winter is now under guard due to a death threat against her by the "European Al Qaeda". It seems Islamization may be fine for the percentage of the populace who the State supports in a hedonistic, pill-popping, serial shack-up lifestyle--just don't talk about the price that will eventually be paid.

A MAJORITY OF FRENCH BIRTHS ARE TO UNWED MOTHERS

France now leads Europe with the highest birth rate at 1.98 children per women--which is well above the European average of 1.52 children per woman. This seemingly good news is greatly tempered however, by the statistics that a majority of the births in France are now to unwed mothers. The once great eldest daughter of the Church is in steep decline along with the rest of her European neighbors. There will never be such a thing as a "Secular Europe"--because with the death of the Faith will come the death of peoples and nations.

Jan. 15 (Bloomberg) -- France became the first non- Scandinavian country in western Europe to record a majority of out-of-wedlock births.

Of the 816,500 births registered in France last year, 50.5 percent were to unmarried parents, up from 48.4 percent in 2006 and 40 percent 10 years ago, according to a report today by Insee, the Paris-based national statistics agency.

``What's led the rise in out-of-wedlock births is that a lifestyle that was once confined to Paris is now the norm even in rural areas,'' Guy Desplanques, head of Insee's demographics department, said in a telephone interview. ``Marriage is no

OPEN YOURSELF TO LIFE IN AN EFFORT TO SAVE WESTERN CIVILIZATION

Here is an incredible quote that sums up the struggle that Western Civilization faces if it is to survive. Once again, it is the Catholic Church that possesses the answers to the crisis of culture that we face. The Church is the only voice in the West that defends life and condemns artificial contraception. Anyone who fails to see the connection between contraception and the potentiality of Eurabia should examine their own participation in the culture of death--which inevitably blinds one to spiritual truths. The article is entitled "The Empty Manger" by John Zmirak. The entirety of this article is a must read--however for the sake of brevity I refer only to a portion of it. (H.T. to Brussels Journal):

"[T]he pansexual hedonists of the Netherlands are now in a panic over their nation’s Islamic future. Even the blasé Parisians have begun to wonder whether their nation’s bureaucratically atheist state is acid enough to dissolve the faith of burgeoning immigrants—before the Arabs outbreed, outvote, and expel the residual Frenchmen. The Germans who a generation ago worshiped their race as a pagan god now look on lackadaisically, and welcome the Turk into Europe. To read their children’s future, they may look to the fate of the Christians in Lebanon, or Kosovo —two other lands where the cradle has had its revenge.

"Any healthy creature or culture shows two signs of life: It reproduces itself, and it fights off

NEW ZEALAND STRUGGLES WITH A LOOMING DEMOGRAPHIC CRISIS

Like so many nations, New Zealand is putting tremendous resources into determining why young people are not having babies. At least in New Zealand they seem to have touched upon the obvious as the source of the problem

In new book, entitled The New Zealand Family From 1840: A Demographic History, Janet Sceats and her husband of 45 years, Professor Ian Pool, argue society is failing both those would-be mothers and parents who feel guilty about the parenting compromises they were forced to make to maintain careers.

"In many ways New Zealand has failed its families...Family policy instruments and the socio-economic environment, rather than coming to the aid of the family, may be exacerbating the situation and putting undue pressure on households."

So they have rightly concluded that socialistic tools have not worked and have actually harmed families. Beyond that-- here is where the "genius" comes:

"The prime facilitator of these changes has been the contraceptive pill. Apart from allowing couples to postpone Read More...

GERMANY TREBLES THE NUMBER OF STATE DAYCARES --WHILE REVEALING DISGUST TOWARD MOTHERHOOD AND REARING CHILDREN AT HOME

In an attempt to halt the demographic crisis that Germany is confronted with chancellor Angela Merkel's ruling coalition approved a plan to treble the number of nurseries for children from the current level of 250,000 to 750,000, by 2013. However, the German government failed to provide families equivalent economic incentives when the mother stays at home. The supporters of this plan to nationalize daycare prove themselves to be shameless socialists who are radically anti-family and anti-child.


Trebling the number of nurseries is supposed to...reverse a fertility rate of 1.3 children per woman - one of the lowest in Europe after Spain (1.3) and Poland (1.2), who scrape the bottom of the 2005 Eurostat survey. The French and Irish lead the field with 1.9 and over. 30% of married couples in Germany have no children...which is the highest percentage in the world.

So-called Super-mom, Ursula von der Leyen, Merkel's minister for family and youth, is a big proponent of the legislation. Ms von der Leyen is the mother of seven children--but she apparently has no problem handing her children over to the government to be raised while she pursues more important matters like the passage of nationalized daycare.

When an outgoing conservative minister, Edmund Stoiber, proposed that families where the mother stays at home receive economic incentives in the amount of 150 Euros monthly --Ursula the super-mom had this to say:

'This would only exacerbate the vicious circle in which children are confined to home, deprived of early training, linguistic improvement, exercise, and limits on television viewing,' said von der Leyen, vehemently criticising this suggestion in Die Welt at the end of July. 'Just so that their parents can add another 150
