Ideology is dead. Long live ideology!

Sebastian GorkaRebel Contributor

As we continue to analyze the Russo-America relationship, I can't help but recall professors Francis Fukuyama and Sam Huntington and their assessments of world conflicts and their catalysts.

For instance, Fukuyama posited that ideology is irrelevant when it comes global conflict. How very wrong you were, professor.

Ideology isn't dead. It is very much alive and has served as the moving force behind Nazism, Communism, and Jihadism. All of these are totalitarian ideologies.

Thankfully, throughout history there has been resistance to such ideologies, be they the Jews who rose up against the Nazis or Communist "refusniks" like the great author, Solzhenitsyn.

But make no mistake: Ideas matter.

And the United States is the last best hope against ideas born of evil, totalitarian agendas.

Martin Ashfield—Good comments, but where you say, Canada is doing the same as the US except less resistance, although true, we don’t have a Trump to help, we have Smiley Scheer, and we don’t know whose side he is on.

I thought Dr.Gorka was going to punch out panelist Philippe Reines last night on the Ingram Angle.
If a short clip becomes available be sure to watch .
As for ideology , we keep failing ourselves when we use the left’s language when they describe themselves as Prigressives.We should not mimic their words by using the same euphemisms that hide their true ideology which is Marxism.

Martin Ashfield you got that right, really makes you wonder how these scum are willing to sell out and doom so many people for their own ends. I guess some people are just Evil.

“Because we in the civilized world, have abandoned all common sense and committed ideological suicide by allowing the Depraved, Evil Ideology of Islam to successfully invade our Nations.”
KEITH AND HELEN HARVEY you are right, however Look at what or who is keeping this “ideological suicide” alive and well and in fact feeding it.
In the USA it is the Democrats, the MSM, the Clinton’s, the Obama’s, and the Hollywood idiots all of whom oppose everything and anything brought forward by President Trump who is trying desperately to defeat this ideology and bring the US back from the brink.
In Canada we have none other than the infamous Justin Trudeau and his Liberals that are doing the same but with less resistance than in the US.
Exactly the same thing is happening in Europe, in Germany especially, although there now seems to be a huge resistance in a few of the European countries.
There is an unhealthy love affair taking place with Liberals and Islam, I have no idea why (other than Liberals are idiots) or what they think they will achieve by continually appeasing Muslims and Islam.

America needs to build that wall around the entire country. Because we in the civilized world, have abandoned all common sense and committed ideological suicide by allowing the Depraved, Evil Ideology of Islam to successfully invade our Nations. And what is truly disturbing is that, it’s not like we didn’t have any prior warning of Islam’s intentions, methods and ultimate goal. Our political correctness and ridiculous dedication to diversity and multiculturalism. Just to demonstrate how inclusive and racially accepting we are, have manifested themselves to be catastrophic failures. At this incredibly late stage, without the luxury of another war to fight this toxic ideology that seeks to eradicate all other religions, the white race, democracy and civilization itself. We have extremely little to no chance of turning the tide. The world is now destined to be engulfed in conflict leading to extinction.

Ideology never dies, it migrates. Islam should have been eradicated during the crusades but men gave in to their weakness

… Excellent.
… “Ideology” is timeless political principles. Everything is based on ideology.
… If you don’t think so, you either don’t understand or are dishonest.

Trudeau: The newest pandering ideologist. OR: (Idiotologist).

I agree. America IS the last best hope so long as the USA can take back their country from the social Marxist left that at present dominates the media, universities & grade schools.
