We Need Slogans

A warm Gates of Vienna welcome to James Wolcott readers!

By all means see our response to his belated recognition of this post.

Also, here are the contest results, with the winners and the grand prize.


Yesterday’s post in response to TigerHawk discussed what would be necessary to militarize the West. In the comments section, ScottSA asserted that Western conservatives need slogans, some brief and pithy catch-phrases which express our cause succinctly. World War Two had its slogans. Our enemies in Islam have their slogans. The appeasers and fellow-travelers on the Left have their neo-Marxist slogans. Why don’t we have any counter-jihad slogans of our own?

In his own blog, Crusader, ScottSA offered his own contribution:

Let’s Stop Pretending.

Everyone should go over there and take a look at the excellent photo essay that accompanies the slogan.

One of our readers suggested:

Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims.

I’d have to qualify the dependent clause in that one with “almost”, though, or else Eteraz would be down on me like a ton of bricks.

So, here’s the revised version for the nitpickers:

Not all Muslims are terrorists; however, all terrorists but four are Muslims.

Then there’s the Gates of Vienna contribution:

We are in a new phase of a very old war.

Does anybody have other suggestions? Send them in an email or leave them in the comments, and I’ll collect them all into a post and we’ll have a slogan contest.

Note: We need at least ten slogans; that way, there will be enough contestants to make things interesting.

Goy said...

Sorry, no inspired slogan...

But along the lines of re-aligning thought patterns, I'm wondering why I don't see more support out there to actually REBUILD the Twin Towers.

To date, the proposals for that location have come down to what sort of huge tombstone we ought to put in their place - a declaration of defeat if I ever heard one. I think we should rebuild them - stronger, higher and more beautiful than the originals.

I say: REBUILD THEM! (okay, that's sort of a tangentially related slogan).

More on this is available here. Anyone interesting in using the little banner I made for this is welcome to it.

Burn the Koran.

Negotiating with madmen does not make them sane. (Pics of Hezbollah, Iran's pres., Hamas, etc.)

Break the cycle of violence --
Defeat Islamic fascism!

Islam is the only religion in which lying, stealing, and killing are virtues.

Leaving Christianity can get you the cold shoulder.
Leaving Islam can get you a cold body.

Truth does not need the threat of murder to make it convincing.

Molech for the masses -- Islam.

Burka = barbarism.

Russet Shadows said...

Dhimmis are Dummies!

Appeasement breeds monsters.

The quickest road to defeat is through the gates of peace at any cost.

In the Koran, "peace" means "give me time to reload".

There's no crescent in the fifty stars!

Smash Islamic Fascists! (Red-white-blue fist.)

Make a Muslim terrorist happy -- send him to Allah!

Islam is not just a religion, it is the most evil cult on this planet.

Islam may cause the death of all of us, Muslims included.

Islam claims to be the only true religion, where does that leave the rest of us?

Islam wants the world to be Islamic, where does that leave the rest of us?

I'm no good with slogans, but I really want to get a personalised number plate that says "NODAWA"

Needless to say, while most people won't get it, there are those who belong to a broad strata who would be upset about it.

Other than that, when Zarqarwi (sp?) got his, my bright idea for a bumper sticker was "Fisk Lied, Zarqarwi Died."

"Let's roll" is the clear winner as far as I am concerned. I have just come back from watching United 93, and even though you knew the ending would be tragic it was a huge, huge relief to see somebody acknowledging the danger, and *fighting back*. What a great film.

Send a jihadist to paradise! You know they want it!!

Intellectual Pariah said...

Jason Pappas's is the best so far. I'd edit it down to one sentence: "Send a jahadi to paradise". I don't know if "jahadi" means exactly the same as "jahadist", but it trips off the tongue more easily in context.

Linda said...

Jihadists believe in equality - we're ALL legitimate targets.

United against Jihad

as it is a global struggle and we need to unite kafirs of all persuasions, and lapsed muslims.

fluffy said...

To borrow from lefties of old:

Jihad is not good for children or other living things.

bookstopper said...

Has anyone ever noticed that America's first war (after the war of independence) was faught against the muslims.


My Slogan:
Washington, Adams, Jefferson...Clinton, Bush...
What? We're STILL fighting these guys!?!

fluffy said...

bookstopper:

They have hated us a long time, haven't they? Like Mr Jefferson said, "Millions for defense, not one penny for tribute."

Phanarath said...

"Time for change" - Tid til forandring.

Was used by the liberal parti in Denmark 6 years ago up to the election, where we went from a Socialist goverment to a Liberal/Conservative.

They had a poster with a covered muslim woman giving the middle finger to the camera. The picture was taking outside a court of law where Muslim men where being tried for the rape of a danish girl.
Under the picture was the slogan: "Time for change"

The slogan is brilliant since the left likes to think of themselves as the progresive side, something they havent been for a long time. The left today is totaly reaktionary. This slogan sets things right.

Also it explains it self. The Muslims give us so many pictures to put it under.

I feel pretty sure we will see this slogan used by other rightwingers around Europe.

"Lets stop pretending" as someone mentioned in another post, is also brilliant, for pretty much the same reasons. Just replace actionary/reactionary, with truthfull/anti-truthfull.

DontDrinkTheTaqiyya said...

My first hard won slogan was "HEIL to the Death Cult HEIL!" appearing four posts up.

My second offering is this -- a nugget I coined about three months ago to define a central epistemological truth -- and presented here in bumper sticker form:

-- "ISLAM: the world's first self-running human misery manufacturing machine" --

AND THE WINNING SLOGAN BEST GETTING

by the Intergalactic Muslim Confederation - (the BORG).

Concessions for Muslims - Hudna In Our Time

DontDrinkTheTaqiyya said...

.
No mere slogan below, but raw truth that people MUST
come to understand before it's too late. The true motto
of Islam is formed by these words which it openly
whispers from within our own national borders to the
idiot PC-besotted nations of the West:

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

"When we are weak,
We appeal to you for "Liberty" and for "Freedom,"
Because these are your principles.

(But) when we are Strong,
We shall deny you these,
Because they are not OUR principles."

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Take a moment to ponder the frightening
and extraordinary ramifications of that. If
we just don't "get it," then the party's over.

Fanusi Khiyal said...

This is not between East and West, this is not between Islam and Christianity only, but between civilisation and barbarity.

You can have life, liberty, and happiness, or you can have Islam, but not both.

Personally, though, I prefer the lines of Aragorn, from "THe Return of the King":

By all that you hold dear, on this good earth, I bid you stand, Men of the West!

And:

Fight Islamic Imperialism- or else

Plus:

READ THE KORAN- and weep...

Baillie said...

Fanusi Khiyal and sbh:

"I bid you stand, Men of the West!" is an excellent idea. I've been using it myself at lordofthepeeps.com for a couple of years, so I don't know why it didn't occur to me. Good work!

Jauhara said...

Why doesn't somebody DOOOOO something?

Crusader Coyote said...

ooh, I like the Aragorn quotes, so perfect. I'm sure there are some others we could look up. . .

Also, inspired by Dan Kaufmann:

Remember Hagia Sofia!

(One of many things that I, personally, will never forgive.)

Two that are not original, and I've seen around on Tee-shirts and such is : Kfir and proud! and All-American Infidel (naturally, the latter could be changed for different natioanlities, like Danes or such.

Speaking of whom, I suppose the Danes could use something like Danes don't pay Danegeld

Crusader Coyote said...

And then seeing my avatar reminded me. . .

Any of the old Crusader war cries would also be appropriate (though we might want to translate them into English).

Onward to victory!
Christ and St. Mary!
Be Glorious!
God Wills it!

for the bumpersticker: Not unto us, Lord, not unto us, but to Thee be the Glory.

By the way, I think it's important that more infidels read the Quran. I recently finished it. It took about a month because I could only take it in small doses. No rational person could read this venom and conclude that Islam is a peaceful religion.

I really think Phil's item is going to be a winner:

"You may not be interested in the Jihad,
but the Jihad is interested in you"

. . . . . . . . . . . . .

From me, here is a simple barebones statement of fact as a slogan:

MODERATE MOSLEMS? - YES
ISLAM A MODERATE RELIGION? - NO

(Citizens in the West must begin to get the heads around this.)

Leo Buchignani said...

Five entries:

The West has unfinished business with Islam.

By sword and fire Islam entered the world, and so it shall depart.

The time has come to extinguish the oldest evil empire, and the greatest Christian heresy, from the face of God's earth.

When fighting illiterate, pitiless Islam, one should not be illiterate.
