Empathy and Pathological Altruism for Refugees in an Oxfordshire Town

This is a footnote to to Tim Murray’s current TOO article, “Pulling at Our heartstring: How the Enemy Within Uses Our Empathy Against Us.” In this Guardian article, note the reference to the famous photo and its effect in motivating empathy and (pathological) altruism:

The school hall was packed, with all eyes fixed on the video screen and its images of overladen boats, lines of refugees and shell-shattered buildings in Syria.

This was no normal Sunday service for the congregation of the Cornerstone Baptist church, who gather each week at the local primary school in Thame, south Oxfordshire.

Sunday’s service was dedicated to the plight of refugees, mainly Syrian, but those from Eritrea and elsewhere too.

The pastor, Paddy Harris, had thrown open the doors to all in the local community, to anyone troubled, especially by recent tragic images, including that of three-year-old Aylan Kurdi. To anyone that wanted to find a way to help, he said. Now, more than 100 people – parents with young children, teenagers, the elderly, a whole cross section – had gathered.

“I’m hoping it will show me ways to act, guide towards a practical solution,” said Sally Hobson, 39, a community paediatrician and regular church attendee, whose heart had been telling her to do something but she wasn’t quite sure what.

Amanda Clarke, 46, a barrister and part-time judge, agreed. “I’m hoping it will inspire us towards a more positive way forward,” she said.

Thame is a small town, one of the safest Conservative seats in the country, whose former MPs include Boris Johnson and Michael Heseltine. Here, as in many communities across the UK, the scale of the humanitarian refugee crisis was appreciated. The question to be addressed on Sunday, though, was what they could each do.

So these are predominantly White, Christian people in a Conservative district — more evidence for the pathology and bankruptcy of so much of contemporary Christianity and what passes as conservatism. I notice that Thame is a few miles from Oxford where there was a notorious ring of Asians who raped ~300 young girls, often with “violent depravity.” One would think the good citizens of Thame would have had quite enough of immigrants from that part of the world — that the empathy well would have about run dry. But hope (and empathy) spring eternal.

How could they help? They could pray, he told them. Or pledge money. Anyone with a property for rent could make it available to the local council for refugees. Perhaps they could foster an unaccompanied minor. Or find other ways to help integrate refugees into their community.

The image of tiny Aylan, whose lifeless body cradled by a Turkish police officer went around the world last week, was not shown. But others, stark images of walking lines of the displaced, and the bombed-out places they once called home, conveyed just as powerful a message. …

Mike Hill, a senior officer with the Metropolitan police, believed the horrific picture of little Aylan, and the tragedy that led to the death of him, his mother and his five-year-old brother, had shocked the nation into awareness that the government’s policies “are not looking after the most vulnerable people”.

Then this from a someone from South Africa:

“I think it is a dilemma for Christians,” said Steve Paver, 48, who is originally from South Africa and who described himself as “an economic migrant”.

“The temptation is the quick and easy actions and the short-term needs. And that is important, but it’s going to be a long-term problem,” he said.

“I think the need is so overwhelming and as a Christian I believe even the small things we can do have greater value than we realise.”

One detects a bit of skepticism in the South African. Could it be he is really a racial migrant—a White who got out before he could be victimized because of his race — and before the deluge to come? Or had he already become a victim? Were his economic prospects dashed by favoritism to Black South Africans? One has the feeling the South African understands that the long-term effects of this are not going to be at all easy.

But in the heat of the upwelling of empathy, all that is forgotten. Their descendants won’t so easily forget.

  1. I don’t believe it is empathy that causes their behavior, it is servitude, they are just doing what believe the authority wants them too, they have no empathy for victims with the wrong skin color – white. So they are just servile sniveling anti-whites with no empathy hiding their psychopathy behind false government approved empathy.

  3. Perhaps in the near future when this sleepy middle-class village has eventually had enough of these economic migrants who will be joined by their relatives & their fellow countrymen then these fools will have had enough of this Cultural Marxism sham manufactured ‘refugee problem’ they will think again. And when their property investment in their homes collapses & they are worth much less, it will be too late to change back. And those residents who are at present silenced by the others ‘moral superiority’ will pay the price too. Another victory for the Cultural Marxist zealots & nation-wreckers posing as humanitarians, alongside brainwashed White lunatics suffering from ‘pathological altruism’ and a ‘Man of God’ who is so desperate to fill his empty church (no wonder many Christian churches are empty) that anything goes.

  4. This is the result of jew propaganda pumped 24/7 into our TV screens. It’s social engineering. These dumb Arse darkie loving crackas have been conditioned to think like this. At a funeral yesterday and the missus was talking to this pretty 15 year old about how she was in Malawi on some school trip helping africans build a school and how fulfilling it all was. I just had a wry smile on my face the whole time. It never ends.

  5. It’s a form of madness, of insanity, aided and abetted by the media. Where’s media coverage of anti-asylum opinion?

  7. Let them come. Let them come. The more of them there are the better. I don’t know exactly how many child rapes it will take for the “penny to drop” for the insane White British People, but clearly, the million or so thus far is far too few.

    Perhaps after 2 million are raped, then the penny will drop? What about 3 million? I don’t know. Perhaps the penny will never drop. In that case, I guess that the White British People don’t really deserve to survive into the next century anyway. Like the DODO BIRD they are becoming evolutionary dead ends. It turns out that there is something in their DNA that makes them unable to survive this kind of attack. If they cannot learn to adapt and fight back against it, then they deserve to go.

  8. The last two White people on Earth will probably find a way to argue about morals and call each other a racist. I think it’s genetic.

    If this doesn’t wake our people, what will? Protecting our women should be of the upmost importance. A White religion that has been jewed down is not our religion anymore. I have faith, but far too many people have blind faith and will listen to whatever their priests preach no matter how compromised he is. Man these jews are good, but we are better. We will wake up or people and save our race. 14/88!

  11. I don’t blame the young kids in that last picture. It’s their fucking parents who allow them to believe in this bullshit. The older folks should be ashamed of themselves. I guess they’ll just have to find out the hard way like most of our people…

  12. The sub title begins with, “As the government tries to catch up with public opinion…”
    Uh, excuse me, but we live in a sick society when you let the rabble determine the course of human events.

  13. these whites are some race traitor scum.

  14. If you look at that picture it’s mostly women. As the Anglin says if you let women take charge their insane altruism will dominate all their emotions. Until women are controlled it’s game over.

  16. God hates these deluded ‘Judeo-Christians’ and destroyers of His original ‘good’ creation, through race-mixing and micegenation of His Holy Adamic (White) race. Even he can’t unscramble ADULTERATED DNA -the unforgivable SIN. Wicked Dr Sally Hobson is in for a very rough Judgement Day.

  18. Cucks, all of them. It’s coming to this…”Last White Man Standing” they don’t want the first place obviously.

  19. Empathy, in itself, is not a problem. In fact, walking a mile in the opposing general’s shoes can win many battles, particularly if the enemy does not have similar powers (e.g. Sun Tzu). In addition, those with greater creative abilities are most certainly able to ’empathize’ better.

    Our problem is not empathy, but the associated emotion laden sympathy, which is much more often a burden than a virtue. This can be remedied.

    It’s obvious, as evidenced by their manipulative capabilities, that kikejews and jewthinkers understand these things much better than we do. They take full advantage of our supposed ‘altruism’. However, all we really lack to counter them is the basis behind its psychology.

    It’s up to knowledgable leaders like Kevin MacDonald to delve more deeply into the empathy/sympathy conundrum. Just noting the connection itself is often enough for me.

    RESIST !!!

  20. Fuck these idiots. Seriously, they’ve seen what happened with the Rotherham case and countries like Sweden and STILL they have bleeding hearts for these worthless third world scumbags??? One white trash moron is still worth more than a thousand Muslims. These “immigrants” rape little kids. How does that not fucking bother them? These bleeding heart retards deserve the “enrichment” that is coming to them. To welcome these parasites to your country now is just first level stupid!

  21. Cows, literally walking, smiling, towards the slaughter house. It REALLY is a case of getting worse, FAR worse, before it gets better. Many will suffer, and die.

    • Yes, a story in pictures. Beautiful, spoiled, young race traitor looks at her elder brother – a culture bearer – with boredom and contempt. She sees him with the eyes of the enemy.

  22. They are all going to die.

  23. These people think that God is going to bless them for being “kind and compassionate”, when actually He’s punishing them for being gutless idiots.

  24. You feel like you’re in the novel before the novel ‘hold back this day.’ by Ward Kendall. You still hope that book isn’t frighteningly prescient but deep down you know that is our future unless there is a dramatic change in fortune for our movement. As it stands ze jews are winning hands down.

  25. I often think what future generations of whites will think about the 100 years from 1950 to 2050. Presuming we survive after 2050 having beaten our enemy and thrive, there’s no doubt they’ll look back and think we were insane. We have willingly aborted millions of our people while allowing ourselves be overrun, raped & murdered by the savages from the third world. We willingly brought chaos and war to our prosperous & peaceful lands. When I say ‘we’ I obviously don’t mean whites like us but the majority which William Pierce referred to as lemmings.

  26. I have an idea on how to help them – put them out of their misery.

  27. “Mommy, why do we live in this shootie town?”

    “Shanty, sweetie. It’s called a shanty town.”

    “But why do we live here? Robbie says white people used to live in the houses.”

    “My parents and their friends brought the other people into the places they lived.”

    “But how come they didn’t know the sand niggers wanted to hurt us, mommy?”

    “They were decieved by the Adversary.”

    “You mean the Jews?”

    “Yes, sweetie, the Jews.”

    “I hate your parents and their friends and these mean old sand niggers. And I hate the Jews too.”

    *tears* “So do I, baby.”

  28. These poor misguided idiots don’t even grasp the message they’re sending by lining up their pretty young white girl children along with the sign.

  29. I got a simple question, where is the counter protest?

  30. Stockholm Sweden #refugeeswelcome demonstration. Liberal sodomites waiving the fag flag go out to welcome their newly arrived bulls.

  32. Doubtless these cucks would even embrace the Muslim nigger “refugees” that just killed 12 Christians on the boat over to Italy. Just what Europe needs: more murdering, raping niggers.

  33. The Bible was written by Jewish communists…

    • This is a great Meme. Christianity is Slave morality. Monothiesm is not the White Man’s religion. Greeks, Romans, Germanic Tribes, Persians and Nordics were all polytheist. Vikings were spot on not to trust the Christians. God is within man. Anybody who tells you otherwise is using you.

    • The Holy Scriptures claim that Jews are the literal children of Satan.

      • ENOUGH, no religion, agree to disagree. You are not going to change each other’s minds. We are allies here, put your energy into fighting the enemy. Get on Twitter, start a blog, flood Facebook with our message. 😉

        • Holy Scriptures are not religion.

          He is not an ally. Anyone denying the power of the Holy Scriptures is either a Jew or ignorant.

          What other book identifies the Jews as the literal children of Satan so long ago?

          • Well I’m not a Christian. Does that make me your enemy? There is no power in a bloody book. All this does is divides us. Put that shit to one side, we have far bigger problems.

          • I am not a Christian.

            The Holy Scriptures explain the problem and the solution.

          • I don’t believe in supernatural mumbo jumbo either. Keep that stuff to yourself. But I can assure you I am not your enemy.

          • you auto-upvote ….thats is sad =/

          • Auto-up vote? I didn’t know there was such a function, show me.

          • self upvote if you prefer….you joker boy =D

          • By the way there is a comment I made an hour before yours above with no upvote. Explain that if I auto-upvote. Stop trying to cause shit, put that energy into fighting our enemy please.

          • i upvoted you =) …i was just being naugthy …i just thoutgh it was funny you upvoted yourself

            you are not a laugher it appear

          • Hitler must have studied his Bible as he wove dozens of verses and practical Christian teachings into Mein Kampf.

            Daniel prophesied of Hitler (and maybe together with the Christian Kaiser and last Czars) in his enigmatic last Chapter v1 -‘Michael’ (who is like God) STANDING UP….to the Dragon/Satanic beast system. He ultimately failed, because now only Christ can/will destroy His World conquering enemies.

          • These churchie types are our sworn enemy’s as much as our politician’s. They are not Christian they are politicalised bastards. Jesus said render unto Caesar that which is due unto Caesar. The Jehovah’s bang on saying that means you shut up and pay your tax dutifully no matter how outrageous. One could safely assume that also means we put up with the coloured scourge fifth column that have invaded our lands since the counter revolution. Or more than that, help them out in any way we can. Well I say fuck you Caesar (all Western governments) and fuck you churchies and that is contrary to what Jesus was meant to have said.
            Maybe the above letter writer is right the Kikes wrote the fucking bible after all.
            The Jew is my mortal enemy and I intend cutting him down at the first opportunity. I hate him with a passion.
            If Jesus said love your enemy he got it wrong. If you love your enemy you betray your friends. These churchie bleeding hearts/left liberals are our sworn enemy’s also because they are sucking up to Musso’s and other coloured shit/vermin. Therefore they should be hated with a passion.
            How do you win wars? You win wars by hating your enemy with a passion.
            I went to church years ago called Westcare, and they actually supported queers there, they even had a filthy old whore called Stormy Summers who they took under their wing for a while, because of Jesus and Mary Magdalene all that shit. It would not surprise me if they support gay marriage. They are absolutely gutless chickenshit and spineless retards, not genuine Christian in my book. In fact they are race traitors. They want to please every one and are so insipid as another writer said earlier they will take any piece of coloured shit into the fold just so they can stay afloat.

        • The Bible is the history and destiny of the Holy White, true-Hebrew Race. All the history has now been proven by sound, older archaeology.

      • That is at least the 4th time he has spammed that in the comments.

        An obvious agenda to smear Christianity with it, despite having it explained to him in detail why it is in error.

        This is exactly the same behaviour that Hitler outlined as being carried out by Jews, they turn up the next day repeating the same lies as if they were never shown to be wrong the day before.

        Funnily enough, every one of the small number of outspoken and unwelcome antichrists on this site do the same.

    • Delightful Gentleman

      We don’t really need religion, let larpers larp but I know better now and I can act based on my tribal affiliations, what’s best for me AND my tribe in the long run, it’s logical, it’s survival, it’s all we need.

    • As you can see from this article, Christians never had a problem doing what needed to be done to defend their nations and acting with appropriate brutality when the occasion arose. There are plenty more examples.

      http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-466818/Historys-bloodiest-siege-used-human-heads-cannonballs.html

      Christianity has been infected with liberalism, that is the problem.

      • For 2000 years Jews hated Christians and Christians equally hated Jews. Remember they were expelled numerous times from our Christian lands with no problem. So after 2000 years what changed? Well, our bible changed. The Scofield Bible came along in 1909 and all of a sudden Christians began loving & worshiping the Jews. The Jews on the other hand never stopped hating the Christians are doing everything in their power to debase and destroy Christian values. The Christians are oblivious to this. I see walking around disillusioned with how the nation is changing, how liberal and degenerate the country is becoming & they have no clue why. They blame the devil when in reality they are allied with the devils who are behind it all. I’m telling you, the day Christians wake up, throw away the corrupt Scofield bible and get back to their roots is the day all this leftwing cultural marxist anti white SJW bull crap ends. I am not advocating for a theocracy. I’m saying Christianity needs to be reformed back to what it was, a strong militant Christianity. The same that expelled the Moors from Spain and fought off the invading Muslim dogs, expelled the parasites etc.. Also I believe we can live in harmony with our white non believing brothers & sisters without problems as long as we both agree to never allow another blood sucking parasite into our lands. Not a single one.

  34. This all begins to remind me of “the Flood” from the Halo series more than the Alien movies. The Aliens were elegant and hyperevolved predators in their way, planet blacks is more like the cancerous, rapidly expanding Flood, or walking dead herds.

    Funny, first a great flood of water to destroy mankind, then, as if mocking God…Jews deluge Christendom with a flood of blacks.

    Someone better get to work on that Spartan armor.
