...again and again - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2010 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

NOTICE: The original RF Cafe Forum is available again for reading, and the new RF Cafe Blog is an active board.

This was 50 years ago. Is it not more true than ever today?

"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property—either as a child, a wife, or a concubine—must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen: all know how to die. But the influence of the religion paralyzes the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science—the science against which it had vainly struggled—the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome."

My god, will we never learn?

Why the hell are the Europeans so bent on their own demise, and along with it, on America's demise?

They are damn fools. We should immediately cut off all presence in Europe militarily. Let the Peaceful Religion complete the invasion they began a millenium ago. Europeans have a birth rate far below that required to sustain their culture, while the Muslims there way out-procreate them. It's just a matter of time.

Bar the Hollywierd idiots at the Cannes pervertfest from returning to the country that made them rich and famous, and they apparently hate so much. Who are those malcontents, many of whom have never earned a college degree and quite a few who have never even graduated high school, to assert themselves as domestic and foreign policy gurus? Those hypocrates portray characters in films the likes of which they protest in real life.

How much more crap are we going to sit back and take from these bastards?

Actually that quote is more than a hundred years old - it's apparently from a book Churchill published in 1899...

<i>The River War</i>, first edition, Vol. II, pages 248 50 (London: Longmans, Green & Co., 1899).

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
