From Resisting Defamation
If an ANTI-white American teacher or professor mentions some destructive effects of European exploration and settlement in the Western Hemisphere without mentioning the lessons that indigenous White Europeans received in destruction at the hands of Mongols, Turks, and Arabs for 900 years PRIOR to, and simultaneously with, the great European explorations in the 1400s, 1500s, 1600s, and 1700s,… then remind them about the great invasions, and their likely influence, on the mind-set of (today’s) Europeans.
A critical tactic by white-hating people is “clock-setting” or “clock-starting.” This means that any narrative, or story about history, has a beginning point which is always arbitrary, and serves to deceive readers about history by selecting a beginning point that disadvantages one or another of the narrative’s participants.
An excellent example appeared on the 01/02/03 CounterPunch website in an essay by a professor of economics at Northeastern University named M. Shahid Alam. The relevant part is in the sixth paragraph which engages in “clock-starting” in 1492, as follows:
“Starting in 1492, the guns of the West have been pointed incessantly outward. For more than five hundred years, the steel of the Western sword, lance, gun and bomb have been planted in the bones and flesh of Africans, Australians, Asians and native Americans….Over 500 years, entire continents were devastated, societies over-thrown, their civilizations denigrated, their peoples decimated, herded into slavery and stranded without dignity.”
This is the Big Lie version of world history that is taught today at most universities and high schools in the USA. Professor Alam resolutely ignores the dangers and destructions facing White indigenous Europeans and cultures from the Asian-based Mongols, Asian-based Turks, and Asian- and African-based Arabs during the same time period.
Diverse White European cultures faced destruction many times before, and since 1492, but those parts of history are concealed by dishonest professors like Professor Alam whose only interest is in promoting a debased picture of White European histories, diversities, cultures, and societies that magically commenced in 1492. Incidentally, “1492″ and “five hundred years” are frequently code words that identify the Alam historical narrative.
The campaign of defamation against the diverse White American peoples has included the suppression in high schools and colleges, of knowledge about the invasions of Europe within historical memory, each of which had a profound and continuing impact on the shared perceptions of the diverse White American peoples. Young White Americans never learn of these profound influences on their histories, heritages, cultures, and diversities in our public schools.
For example, research reveals that the anti-Asian sentiment in California in the mid-1800s, included vivid memories of the great invasions and destruction of homes, hometowns, churches, states, and people by the Mongol Empire which wasn’t finally crushed until the time of Catherine the Great of Russia — when George Washington was president.
True history would include the long-lasting and historically recent Mongol, Turkish, and Arab invasions into Europe that shaped the indigenous White European perceptions of each of the three peoples, and continues to frame those perceptions among many diasporic White Americans.
One centuries-long series of brutal militaristic invasions into Europe was the North African-based Arab, Berber, and Turkish incursions and slave-takings for 700 years in Southern and Western Europe that only ended in 1492.
Given that the generally ANTI-European and ANTI-Christian bias in Wikipedia, the reader may find there, a moderately accurate account of the Battle of Tours in 732 which marked the farthest invasion of Western Europe by Arabs.
MILLIONS of Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, and Sicilian peoples were slaughtered, or enslaved and sold at slave markets in Africa and Asia. There were no fewer than 4 major bloody Arab and Berber crusades into Southern Europe during this period.
Also — for centuries — Turkish warlords on the North African coast indulged in massive slave-taking operations and massacres of indigenous European peoples from Ireland, England, Scotland, Iceland, and all along the Adriatic, North Atlantic, and North Mediterranean coasts.
American shipping in the early years of the American republic was also oppressed by the Turkish warlords dwelling among the Arabs and Berbers along the North African coast.
A 2nd – centuries-long series — of plundering and butchering crusades was by the Asian Mongols and lasted for 550 years in Eastern and Central Europe.
Millions of Europeans were slaughtered or sold at slave markets in Asia. These invasions did not completely end until around the end of the American war for independence when Catherine the Great of Russia wiped out the last Mongol-installed khanate (kingdom) on the Crimean peninsula in 1783.
Dozens of European principalities and cities were destroyed by Mongol armies as they converted the populated plains and river basins of East and Central Europe into grazing grounds for horses and cattle.
The viciousness of the Mongol invasions is shown by the fact that they engaged in the first recorded biological warfare. European merchants at trading posts on the coast of the Black Sea were driven out when Mongols hurled dead bodies of victims of the Bubonic Plague (the Black Death) over the trading post walls. When the traders retreated to Venice, the Bubonic Plague accompanied them and led to death by disease of up to 50% of all Europeans in the mid-1300s.
A 3rd — centuries-long series — of marauding and vicious militaristic crusades into Europe was the Asian Turkish invasions and slave-takings in Central Europe for 500 years that ended only about 90 years ago with the collapse of imperial Turkey into its present boundaries. These imperialist crusades took the Turkish empire all the way to the coast of Italy and the walls of Vienna. (More) millions of Europeans were enslaved and sold at slave auctions in North Africa and Southwest Asia.
(Again), given the generally ANTI-European and ANTI-Christian bias in Wikipedia, the reader may find there a moderately accurate account of the Battle of Vienna in 1529 which marked the farthest invasion into Central Europe by Turks.
One depraved feature of the Turkish empire was the frequent slave roundup (“child levy“) throughout the Slavic nations, as far north as the city walls of Moscow and Warsaw. These were no simple, mercantile affairs like the Asian Arab slave-taking expeditions hundreds of miles into the east coast of Africa. These were well-financed and state-run roundups (child-stealing) of young Europeans (and often the murder of their parents). >Source
