Eulogy to Theo Van Gogh From America
by Terry Graham
13 November 2004
Theo Van Gogh -- my thoughts are with you and your countrymen, and mine. I
didn't know you, but tales of your willingness to speak out for freedom echo
throughout the world. Thank you.
How many recognize that you embodied the highest achievement of Western
Civilization -- the right to speak freely and without fear -- in the
tradition of the Founders of your nation? Theo, you demonstrated the
strength, spirit and beauty of the Northern European peoples, to fight for
the weak, to right a wrong, to seek the ideal of men and women living in
And how many will understand that your naive belief that you were safe in
the heterodoxical hell the cultural usurpers have created in our once-free
countries cost you your life? That these evil doers have your blood on their
You lived as though you understood your rights to free expression were
inalienable. Tragically, you were deceived by identity thieves who have
targeted the free-thinking Dutch...and you paid with your life. Against our
will and with no open discussion, our European-Christian nations have been
force fed aberrant aliens who neither value nor honor the freedoms for which
our ancestors paid so dearly.
Years ago, I stood at the Amsterdam dock where my ancestors boarded a wooden
ship and sailed to a fledgling America. I pondered those brave souls who
left your thriving country, long-known for its liberty, to spread the good
news to distant shores. Perhaps our families bid farewell at that dock.
The individual rights for which our folk for centuries have fought and died
were indeed embraced and refined in America. Following the bloody American
Revolution, her Christian Founders wisely set forth in writing that our
rights come from God -- not a King, Constitution, elected or
self-appointed, self-annointed ruler. Only our God can take these rights
America's First Amendment sets forth our God-given right to free expression
and association. Bloodshed taught our Founders that only so-called
"controversial" speech -- as defined by power-hungry despots and their
minions -- requires protection. Tyrants must suppress free speech to sustain
themselves. Recognizing this, our Founders provided the sole solution to
tyranny in Americans' Second Amendment: our God-given right right to keep
and bear arms .
My Dutch brothers and sisters took to the streets at your assassination,
banging pots and pans to show they will not be silenced. Yet, the deliberate
devolution of our nations and hard-won liberty cannot be restored by the
clatter of kitchenware in the streets of Holland -- or America.
The culture vultures lust for the carrion of our freedoms, our souls. The
very people our ancestors removed and barred from our nations-- who
threatened our God-given freedoms -- now live in our midst supported by
liars who invite their presence to create a multicultural mire, confusion,
backlash and, ultimately, the excuse to seize control.
THEY SHALL NOT PREVAIL.
I study your photo, the one the media vermin chose to accompany reports of
your ritual slaughter at the hands of those whom they invited in to feast at
freedom's table. You look back at me, vacantly, disaffected, a cigarette
drooping from your mouth, disheveled blonde hair framing your face.
But I know you, Theo. I know that within you burned a spirit of Truth, a
spirit that refused to accept the bondage, the police state that new
"leaders" build with while we live, vulnerably, in the midst of their
carefully crafted chaos.
Soon, the universal usurpers of our cultures will no doubt resume their
insistence that we tolerate the intolerable even as they seek to bind our
brains and criminalize our contempt for the contemptible.
Make no mistake: The fight now is for *our* people. Let us be united in this
struggle for our survival.
Tonight, I will light a candle and raise a toast to you, Theo Van Gogh. I
will give thanks that men such as you have lived among us to battle those
who would extinguish our freedoms, our heritage, our people. I will honor
your spirit of truth seeking I will celebrate your courage and your life. I
will give thanks at your sacrifice for our freedom. Rest in peace, Theo,
knowing that your life, and death, shall be a Torch of Light to your
brothers and sisters in Freedom.
