for helping to form such a wonderful community of caring and thoughtful people.

I would like to take this opportunity to say a few things about this site now that the end of 2013 is a stone throw away.
There are a number of people who dedicate their time and at their own expense to bring us critical information that our own media would deny us, either by design or ignorance. These people work very hard to translate, write, observe and share observations and otherwise enhance our understanding of the issue so that we may be better equipped to preserve what we rapidly recognize as profoundly worth defending.
Just to name a few but by no means all, Baron Bodessey at Gates of Vienna, who edits a staggering amount of material, both articles and translations and subtitle files to make sure everything is as it should be. He nearly never is credited but without his ceaseless and lucid efforts we wouldn’t be delivering as much or as clear information. Oz-Rita who translated so many videos from German and French to English. Michael Laudahn, who translated a vast number of videos and articles for us here at VTB and we shall always be in his debt for the work he did. SIMONXML who does many videos from several European languages to English. Carpe Diem who has recently been delivering German to English and English to German videos of the situation in Germany. Fjordman who not only writes brilliantly about the situation globally and locally, but has endured hardship few of us can understand for his opinions. Opinions i might add, that only a few short decades ago would have constituted the most basic and obvious orthodoxy and barely worthy of notice before the quiet takeover of Neo-Marxist thought that has branded him an outcast and untermenschen. He also sends vast amounts of news from Scandinavia about the situation there, much of which comes to you via this site as well as GoV and of course, Tundra Tabloids, who also provides us with image creation and news from Finland.
M, Richard, Yucki, WTD, Seneca III, Shabnam, Taffy in Canada, Perfect Child, Don C, ML, Snaphanen, Blue (who I suspect may also be) Red, C.B. Sashenka, and many many others who are regular contributors to this site and send in links and thoughts that are invaluable to us all, but also help create a sense of community, which is perhaps equally important when one holds ideas that may be demonstrably true, but are very out of fashion.
I know I have forgotten many of you in this haze of rum & eggnog, but also my general lack of ability to retain names. Please know it has nothing to do with my level of gratitude, only my lack of mental prowess. One must work with what one has.
Lastly it should be known that many people cannot say who they really are and wish not to be acknowledged for obvious safety reasons as well as fear of total loss of livelihood as many people live in nations which are tantamount to Marxist due to laws which are essentially forcing you to hold certain opinions and thoughts. Thank you to all of you as well.
And then there are those who felt it was worth throwing everything in. People like Lars Vilks or Geert Wilders who’s lives are unimaginably difficult for most of us who take for granted going for a walk or enjoying a public restaurant. These people and many many more where willing to give up all that modern civilization offers to us all in order to preserve it for us and our children.
And even to those who read this site and do not contribute but are willing to at least consider the idea that the narrative they have grown up with may not be in their interests.
Thank you all.
