Gimli raises axe for Western civilization

Perhaps the most passionate observations came from John Rhys-Davies, who plays the dwarf Gimli and voices Treebeard the Ent. Focusing on the necessity of defending civilization in times of crisis, Rhys-Davies took the media to task for failing to appreciate the preciousness of Western civilization, and warned of the potential consequences of rising Muslim extremism and the increasingly Islamic face of Europe.

“I think that Tolkien says that some generations will be challenged,” said Rhys-Davies, “and if they do not rise to meet that challenge, they will lose their civilization. That does have a real resonance with me.”

Pointing a finger at the media, Rhys-Davies went on, “What is unconscionable is that too many of your fellow journalists do not understand how precarious Western civilization is, and what a jewel it is… The abolition of slavery comes from Western democracy. True democracy comes from our Greco-Judeo-Christian Western experience. If we lose these things, then this is a catastrophe for the world.”

Rhys-Davies revealed that as far back as 1955 his father had predicted that “the next World War will be between Islam and the West.” The actor recalled his response: “I said to him, ’Dad, you’re nuts! The Crusades have been over for hundreds of years!’ And he said, ’Well, I know, but militant Islam is on the rise again. And you will see it in your lifetime.’ He’s been dead some years now. But there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think of him and think, ’God, I wish you were here, just so I could tell you that you were right.’”

Looking at the lone female journalist at the table, Rhys-Davies said pointedly, “You should not be in this room [according to Muslim custom]. Because your husband or your father or your husband is not here to guide you. You could only be here in this room with these strange men for immoral purposes.”

Rhys-Davies went on to contemplate the significance of demographic shifts among Western Europeans and Muslims in Europe. “There is a demographic catastrophe happening in Europe that nobody wants to talk about, that we daren’t bring up because we are so cagey about not offending people racially. And rightly we should be. But there is a cultural thing as well… By 2020, fifty percent of the children in Holland under the age of 18 will be of Muslim descent…

“And don’t forget, coupled with this there is this collapse of numbers. Western Europeans are not having any babies. The population of Germany at the end of the century is going to be 56% of what it is now. The populations of France, 52% of what it is now. The population of Italy is going to be down 7 million people.

“There is a change happening in the very complexion of Western civilization in Europe that we should think about at least and argue about. If it just means the replacement of one genetic stock with another genetic stock, that doesn’t matter too much. But if it involves the replacement of Western civilization with a different civilization with different cultural values, then it is something we really ought to discuss — because, [hang it all], I am for dead-white-male culture!”

His fellow filmmakers might not all agree, but Tolkien would have applauded.

This guy not only gets it, but he's really articulate in explaining his view! This is to be contrasted with this co-star, the despicable Viggo Mortensen (Aragorn) who is an idiot moonbat liberal of stupendous proportions.

I always like Rhys-Davies in the Indy flicks, and now I like him even more.

Gimli was always one of my favorites.

I've loved that guy since I first saw him as Rodriguez in [i]Shogun[/i]. In one episode of [i]Sliders[/i] he and the gang are re-writing the Constitution. He is reciting it from memory, and the black guy is writing it down. He recites the Second Amendment, and the BG says, "we can't include that! It's dangerous!" He replies along the lines of, "Look, we're discussing basic freedoms. You don't just ditch them. WRITE IT!" I wish I could remember the exact quote... That said, that was the LAST episode of [i]Sliders[/i] I ever watched. WAY too PC all of a sudden. Same thing that happened to [i]MacGyver[/i].

This man obviously needs to be sent for re-education. Gimli speaks the truth. [:D] Why is it that only our (western/Christian) civilization is the only one allowed to be attacked and dragged through the mud.

Because since the others can't rise to our level, they are forced to bring ours down for their own feelings...

I've always liked John Rhys-Davies ever since watching him in The Indiana Jones movies and King Solomans Mines. I was happy to see him again in the Lord of the rings movies. I agree with everything he's said in the above article and have a new found respect for the man[^]

Outstanding. I've been telling friends for years that the religious war between Islam and Christians/Jews is just [i]beginning[/i]. Believe it. Prepare for it. CMOS

Well, if the Christian chat sites I've been to lately are any indication, Christianity is well and truly fucked. WAY too many "war is evil", "violence is never justified", and "the Lord will fight for us" idiots around... I hope they're the minority...

Well,here we go again... I'm descended from the guys who started the Crusades. I'll be here to pick them up again if necessary..... CrashBurnRepeat

Well, what can I say? I'm impressed. Quick, somebody sent him some RKBA literature.

Would those be the same ones that allow queers to be priests and promote queer marriage?

The man speaks truly of cloudy days ahead, but wait! There IS a silver lining:
Western Europeans are not having any babies. The population of Germany at the end of the century is going to be 56% of what it is now. The populations of France, 52% of what it is now.
