Philip Atkinson, Fascist Xenophobe

Yesterday, I brought up the insane rantings of Philip Atkinson, who advocates the genocide of the Iraqi people through nuclear weapons, the transplanting of Americans into Iraq to replace the murdered Iraqis, and the transformation of George Bush from mere President into Dictator. (One wonders why Atkinson hasn't suggested that Bush be deified (astaghfirullah) considering how often he compares him to Julius and Augustus Caesar. Bad form, I guess. Anyhoo...)

More of Atkinson's insane writings have surfaced, despite Family Security Matters' (FSM) efforts at deep-sixing all of his work that they had previously published on their website. Dirt Rhodes Scholar has unearthed an article FSM published back in May in which Atkinson calls for the enslavement and murder of all Mexican immigrants into the U.S. and for the U.S. to invade Mexico (again):

Mexico is now colonizing America and imposing its language and culture on it. Though the Americans still have the strength of understanding to recognize that the Hispanic invasion should be stopped, they are unable to take the measures required to achieve this end. The very least that must be done to halt the Hispanic invasion is the mass enslavement, or execution, of the invaders, which must be followed by an American invasion of Mexico to enforce American language and values upon the Mexicans. But the citizens of the USA recoil from such ruthless violence embracing delusion instead. They pretend that their futile defense is not folly, ignore the slow but inevitable takeover of their country and persecute anyone who tries to dispel their illusions. America has lost its ability to defend itself and must eventually be overrun by people from other cultures.

My emphasis.

Atkinson is apparently ignorant of - or ignores - the history of the North American continent when he writes such trash as:

The result of this migration is inevitable. The invaders take over their new homeland by sheer weight of numbers. The original manners, customs and beliefs of the destination country are slowly replaced by those of their invaders. This can be easily seen in the USA where the actual border with Mexico is slowly moving further north every year. The culture of the white Americans is being displaced by their mainly Hispanic invaders; peace and wealth created by the white American culture are being replaced by poverty and crime brought by the invaders. This represents a take-over made obvious by the replacement of the use of the English language with Spanish. Miami is now a Spanish-speaking city even though it is technically in America -- an English-speaking country.

The Spanish colonized what is now the southwestern United States and Florida long before the Anglos arrived in those areas. (Apparently, Atkinson doesn't know this.) In fact, the bulk of the southwestern states (all of California, Nevada and Utah, and parts of Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and Wyoming) belonged to Mexico in the first place, until Mexico was forced to cede that land to the U.S. under the Treaty of Guadalupe Hildalgo in 1848. (The remainder of Arizona and New Mexico were purchased by the U.S. in 1853 in a deal known as the Gadsden Purchase. Florida was purchased from Spain in 1819 as part of the terms of the Adams-Onis Treaty.)

Atkinson is a fascist xenophobe; this one article (not counting the article I referenced yesterday) displays five of the fourteen patterns of fascism. It's no surprise that even his colleagues at FSM are washing their hands of him.

Atkinson's essay on Mexico brings to mind Jared's Decades of Darkness alternate history!

In this alternate history Thomas Jefferson dies early, New England and New York secede from the Union with British support, and the remainder of the USA turns into a vicious expansionist monster dominated by slave owners.

Interesting. I wasn't familiar with this "Decades of Darkness" project.
