Black History Month 2013: Timbuktu Sacked

Thousands of ancient texts destroyed in legendary city of Timbuktu
Welcome to OD’s celebration of Black History Month 2013


OD kicks off our coverage of Black History Month 2013 by taking a look at the chaos in Northern Mali where the legendary African city of Timbuktu has been writhing under shariah law imposed by al-Qaeda affiliated rebels for the past several months.

If you were ever forced to endure Black History Month in an American public school in February, you will probably remember learning about the University of Timbuktu and the thousands of manuscripts that were stored there while Europe was “still in the Dark Ages.”

The University of Timbuktu’s great claim to fame is that it is supposedly older than its Western European counterparts – like the notion that Ancient Egyptians were black, this is another pernicious Afrocentrist myth, as the University of Paris was established around 1150 and the University of Oxford officially dates back to 1167. The University of Bologna in Italy was founded in 1088.

There were universities in Western Europe, Central Europe, and Eastern Europe during the Late Middle Ages. The “University of Timbuktu,” a complex built around three mosques and madrasas, dates back to the great Trans-Saharan slavetrader Mansa Musa’s reign in the early 14th century.

Sadly, Timbuktu in 2013 is only renowned for the raping, looting, beatings, mutilations and the destruction of the very manuscripts and intellectual activity administered by fellow African Muslims that made it a UNESCO world heritage site, which also happens to be the primary cause of the decline of the fabled city.

At least this story ends on a positive note: in the latest example of carrying out the white man’s burden in Africa, the French arrived to save the day, something that tends to happen often in West Africa.

  1. There are never any bad guys in Black History Month. They only ever have heroes, so it is not real history, it is counterfeit Politically Correct history.

    White History by comparison, has villains AND heroes. That is real history.

  2. Teen performing at Obama inauguration killed – Chicago schoolgirl latest face of ever-increasing homicide toll in US president’s hometown. Feb 1, 2012

    ” A 15-year-old girl who performed in US President Barack Obama’s inauguration festivities is the latest face of the ever-increasing homicide toll in the president’s hometown. She was killed in a Chicago park as she talked with friends by a gunman who apparently was not even aiming at her.

    Police said Hadiya Pendleton was in a park about 2km from Obama’s home in a South Side neighbourhood on Tuesday afternoon when a man opened fire on the group.”

  3. Of course this meddling will come with the requirement to resettle millions more “French” Malians in France, and kill thousands of young white Frenchmen. But know worries, their wives, sisters and daughters will have lots of diversity to breed with.
    You know, France is ground zero for a motherland sacrificed for a multicultural, democratic republic. Read Camp of the Saints.

  4. Hopefully the white European sees this as a chance to restyle Africa with white people and displace the nogs. Not to invite more darkies in the metropol.

  5. Timbuktu was a black city?

    Ok, confused here a little, wasn’t Timbuktu always Arab-run, and ethnically Arab? It was the main southern trading center on the edge of the desert before black sub-sahara starts?

  6. I’m fully suprised that our “elite” has not made Mali a racial issue, the Tuaregs rebelled against the south so as to set up their own country. The Tuaregs being a white looking arab type.

  7. If you were ever forced to endure Black History Month in an American public school in February, you will probably remember learning about the University of Timbuktu and the thousands of manuscripts that were stored there while Europe was “still in the Dark Ages.”

    Lol. England in the Middle Ages was wealthier than sub-Saharan African nations are today.

  8. @Remnant,

    From the comments to that article you linked to:

    The biggest trouble Detroit has, reputation-wise, is that it’s in rings.

    The core Detroit is the institutional zone, which contains the cultural institutions, Fox theater, riverfront, casinos, sports venues, and other tourist-type destinations appropriate for a 3.7 million person urban population (4.3 million MSA, 5.2 million CSA).

    The second ring of Detroit is the poor neighborhoods and decaying post-industrial sites that surround the first Detroit, and with it comprise the the incorporated city of 700,000.

    The third ring of Detroit is “the suburbs”, where the remaining 3 million of the urban population live (and then the 1.5 million of the outer CSA). Since they’re called suburbs, they’re written off as bedroom communities when it comes to Detroit’s reputation. Royal Oak (with its thriving “downtown” nightlife) or Rochester (with its vibrant “downtown” shopping district) would be “thriving urban neighborhoods” if they happened to be within Detroit’s nominal city limits, but the political geography means they’re just not counted.

    This is a good characterization of Detroit, which really is an underrated city. Remember that the 90% black city of Detroit is only a small part of the Detroit metropolitan area, about 700,000 out of 5 million, or closer to 6 million if you include the entire region stretching from Ann Arbor to Windsor, Ontario, making it one of North America’s largest urban areas.

    And with blacks continuing to flee in droves from the dysfunction that they’ve created in the city of Detroit, I can easily see whites re-colonizing the city, starting from the downtown core where it’s already begun, and spreading out from there. The suburbs are already lily-white and include some of the nicest and wealthiest towns in the US like Grosse Pointe and Bloomfield Hills.

    The idea that that Detroit will ever be abandoned is ridiculous. The city is still the global capital of the automotive industry, and not just manufacturing but engineering, design, marketing, etc. Detroit-Windsor is possibly the world’s busiest border crossing in terms of international trade, and another bridge across the Detroit River will be constructed in the next few years alongside an existing bridge, tunnel, and ferry service for trucks carrying dangerous goods. And Detroit commands the strategic chokepoint between the upper and lower Great Lakes, ensuring that it has the 3 most important factors for remaining a major city for centuries to come: location, location, location.

    One pet peeve of mine is why they put the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland rather than Detroit, the true centre of American music. The reason being that a Cleveland DJ, Alan Freed, allegedly came up with the phrase “rock and roll” in the 1950s. I’m sure that Alan Freed being Jewish had absolutely *nothing* to do with the decision though, since Cleveland has produced so many top-notch musical acts like…..crickets…..still thinking…..more crickets…..thinking hard now…..chirp chirp chirp.

    Meanwhile, Detroit has an entire genre of music named after it, Motown. How many cities can make that claim? Besides Motown, Detroit has produced world leaders in just about every musical genre imaginable, and today is considered the North American birthplace and capital of the electronic/techno scene. Just off the top of my head, and I’m sure I’m forgetting lots of acts, Ted Nugent, Bob Seger, Mitch Ryder, Alice Cooper, Iggy Pop, Meat Loaf, Rare Earth, Grand Funk Railroad, Madonna, Insane Clown Posse, Eminem, White Stripes and Kid Rock have all come out of Detroit.

    Detroit Rock City, indeed.

  9. @jeppo,

    Very interesting and informative stuff, indeed! It is a good reminder that internet info (including SBPDL) is no substitute for on-the-ground informed opinion. That said, someone like Mcardle is always good for a laugh because she will never ever say the “r” word.

  10. “Rudel says:
    February 2, 2013 at 3:09 am
    Vive La France! I don’t give a shit about Timbuktu but at least it shows the French still have some fighting spirit.”

    Heavy sigh.

    Rudel – what are the French fighting FOR? The oppoortunity ot preserve thel iveds of a bunch of facsimiles of proto humanoid?


    Why do White men keep laying thier lives on the line for lowly beasts?

    When will Whitey learn?

    IF the French soldiers clean up the mess ,and take over – excellent.

    They won’t though.

    The Chinese will, and are.

    Heavy sigh.

  11. Jeppo just auditioning for a job with Contard Inc. Detroit is one of the most anti-white cities in the disfunctional Union. And if something is anti-white it sucks, Detroit sucks.

  12. Most white men won’t lay down their lives for ANYTHING. That’s why we’re in the situation we’re in. Those French soldiers fight for their comrades and commanders. Social entropy is no excuse to avoid fighting barbarians.

  13. Re: “fighting barbarians”: The more fighting against barbarians in the Middle East for ……., the more disappearance of Christians in the Middle East. Every new stage of the Endless War means FEWER Christians.

  14. Screw Hollande and his “Niggaz in Paris” constituency. Why is the French military fighting in Northern Mali? Does it have any thing to do with the French people? No.

    The French should mind their own business. And the Civil War in Mali is none of their business.

  15. They destroyed an old French colonial church, then? After every stage of the Endless War, Christianity dies a little more.

    Not defeatist at all, Tamer, but realistic. Who or what is the War on behalf of? Not Christianity. Even the Crusades did immense damage, to both Byzantine and other eastern churches. The Copts, the preservers of the Egyptian language and once the majority religious group ruled by an Arabic minority, now comprise barely 10% of Egyptian population. It appears that Christianity is expendable.

  16. “And if something is anti-white it sucks, Detroit sucks.”

    And rock ‘n roll, being nothing but ‘nigger music’ that whites could dance too, falls smack dab into that category.

    Call it what you will, ever since Chuck Berry, and Elvis, white music has dried up- it’s all Kulturkampf ‘mix-it-up’ and the ultimate visual for Rock is that Swedish TV video by the same name. WHITE GENOCIDE via Jewish-controlled stepinfetchits, telling White Kids that it’s ‘cool’ to listen to jungle rhythms…. yeah.


  17. jihadists are the real moslems, which is why they enjoy such wide support in the moslem world

    As to the why of it, because it is dangerous, exciting and more rewarding then dealing with the feminist indoctrinated Western White woman.

  18. Mosin,

    To be fair, South Sudan is a Christian and animist territory. Breaking from the Arabs in Khartoum was a plus for Christianity.

  19. For all the jackasses who ridiculed me, over the legitimacy of the Khazarian connection of the so-called “Jews;” who impugned a dead Jews’ magnum opus, Arthur Koestler’s “The Thirteenth Tribe”, even in light of his Nobel Prize status; and who continue to think that the sons of Edom/sons of Satan [John 8:44] have ANY further ‘legitimacy’ …or (better yet) that Isra-HELL has a ‘right to exist;

    Read this, and stuff it. DNA evidence now proves that the connection between Biblical Jews- (as the racially pure sons of Adam- the ‘B’nai B’rith’ of the Pentateuch) have no connection as a ‘race,’ coterminous with certain AshkeNAZI poseurs in Isra-hell, [Rev. 2:8,9] “Jews” as we have known them, DON’T EVEN EXIST- Schlomo Sand’s work also is vindicated.

    “Under this concept, eastern European Jews descended from the Khazars, a hotchpotch of Turkic clans that settled the Caucasus in the early centuries AD and, influenced by Jews from Palestine, converted to Judaism in the 8th century.”

    The Church alone, and Christendom’s Caucasian peoples only, have been ‘God’s Israel’ [Gal. 6:16] for twenty centuries. And still are.

    “So glad to have my opinion corroborated by a competent authority.” – Ko-Ko, in Gilbert and Sullivan’s “The Mikado”

  20. John, “Christian and animist” is something like Voodoo? Yes, I know, John, the Nile River system from the Mediterranean to the Ethiopian highlands was Christian before Muslim.

    Tamer, you are a great wit.

    Fr John, thanks for the excellent comment. The Papal system seems to considers the remnants of the eastern churches expendable, as it acquiesces with the global war. I noted this passage from your article: ” ‘We conclude that the genome of European Jews is a tapestry of ancient populations including Judaised Khazars, Greco-Roman Jews, Mesopotamian Jews and Judeans,’ says Elhaik. ‘Their population structure was formed in the Caucasus and the banks of the Volga, with roots stretching to Canaan and the banks of the Jordan.’ Many things are unknown about the Khazars, whose tribal confederation gathered Slavs, Scythians, Hunnic-Bulgars, Iranians, Alans and Turks. But, argues Elhaik, the tale sketched in the genes is backed by archaeological findings, by Jewish literature that describes the Khazars’ conversion to Judaism, and by language, too. ‘Yiddish, the language of Central and Eastern European Jews, began as a Slavic language’ before being reclassified as High German.” So Ashkenazic heritage is complex, and primarily from the east.

  21. The link to the article with photos from Jim Crow shows one more good, decent and beautiful thing yankees destroyed

  22. The Khazar World Plantation Empire Imperium is real. With Judeo Masonry as a ram rod. Marranos everywhere like a lizard that changes color. Marranos are Khazars that are hidden and not known putting up a false image of WHO THEY REALLY ARE: Jack Otto is right on and about Khazars. Amazing how Judeo Masonry works and dies for them and will kill for them….

  23. For that matter, people of English, Welsh, Scots-Irish, Irish and even German ethnic backgrounds who are south of the Line are different than people of English, Welsh, Scots-Irish, Irish and even German ethnic backgrounds who are north of the Line.

  24. South of the Line, Anglo-Celts are called Norman-Southrons and get along with Southron-Sephards. North of the Line, Anglo-Celts are Yankees that the Norman-Southron Anglo-Celts DON’T get along with, and there is a different Jewish people, different than the Southron Jewish people. These are some of the lessons we have learned.

  25. North of the Line are Ashkenazis, south of Line, Sephardim. By educating Southron people in these truths, the Southron people will be motivated to secede from the control of people north of the Line.
