Culture-Enriching Knife Murder on a Bus Full of School Children

An Afghan culture-enricher stabbed his wife to death on a bus in Bavaria. There were schoolchildren riding on the bus at the time.

Below is a description of the incident (from Politikstube, translated by MissPiggy):

The idyllic Bavarian village of 6,000 in Obergünzburg is in shock. An Afghan stabbed his ex-wife on a public bus, in front of schoolchildren and other passengers. In 2017 a demonstration was held against deportations. The Afghani already had a police record because of an earlier assault. His deportation might have saved the woman’s life. Children who were passengers on the bus and witnessed the incident can receive psychological support.

Fifteen Years

During her tenure here Dymphna wrote repeatedly about the strange lack of commemorative attention that the anniversaries of the 7/7 bombings in London have received in the UK.

There may have been a significant observance on the first anniversary, but from the second onwards the date passed each year with scant public acknowledgement. I don’t know what the British media are saying today; perhaps our readers in the UK can provide their observations. I think I saw a news headline about the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan (no relation to Mohammad Sidique Khan, one of the bombers), laying a wreath at the memorial in Hyde Park.

For those who were too young at the time, or have forgotten: today is the fifteenth anniversary of the series of coordinated Islamic terror attacks on public transportation in London on July 7, 2005. The bombs went off during the morning rush hour, killing fifty-two people in addition to the mujahideen who carried out the attacks. Hundreds of others were wounded.

The atrocities were perpetrated by Mohammad Sidique Khan, Hasib Hussain, Germaine Lindsay, and Shehzad Tanweer, giving the incident a Mohammed Coefficient of 25%.

Readers can look at conditions in London and the UK today and decide for themselves whether the 7/7 attacks made Britons wake up and smell the halal coffee. Personally, I think the surname of the mayor of London tells us all we need to know.

Throwing the Book at ’em, Swedish Style

Two culture-enriching “Swedish” youngsters have received sentences of three and a half and two years for the robbery and murder of a third culture-enricher. The one who received two years did not participate in the murder, according to the court, and the other one pretended to be 16 at the time of the crime to avoid a stiffer sentence. Which, knowing Sweden, might have been as much as — gasp! — seven years in detention. As it is, he will serve his draconian three-and-a-half-year sentence in juvie.

The case has a Mohammed Coefficient of 100%.

Murder with 66 knife cuts and robbery brings 3.5 years juvenile custody for immigrant of unknown age

by Av Pettersson

In December of last year, a dead man, Rabeen Zuher Khalid, was found by passersby in Lövgärdet in Gothenburg. He had been beaten and been killed with 66 stab wounds in his head, throat and neck. Today, two young men were sentenced for the act. One for murder and robbery, the other for robbery and protecting a criminal, aggravated crime.

The younger of the two, Ayuub Mahamed Nur, with duel Somali-Swedish citizenship, and possibly 16 years of age at the time of the crime, was sentenced for murder and robbery to three and a half years in juvenile custody. The prosecutor had claimed that he was older than he stated, and that he was 18, not 16, when it happened. Concerning this the district court wrote: “In light of the margin of error regarding the medical age investigation and what else has emerged, the district court considers that the age of 19 does not appear more likely than 17 years. The district court shall thus assume the age which is most favorable to NN, and in this context that is 17 years.”

In the investigation, a letter was found where Ayuub himself wrote that he would soon be 19 years old, yet he is sentenced as a 16-year-old at the time of the murder.

[Inset:

From Migration Court judgment UM 2437-13 dated February 11 2014:

It is the asylum seeker who must prove that he is a minor.

This principle also applies to unaccompanied children.

In the first place, written evidence is relevant.

However, the asylum seeker has the burden of proof concerning his age, and if he cannot prove that he is underage, he will be considered an adult.]

The older of the two, Ibrahim Ali Mohamud, born in 1999, and for some reason a Swedish citizen, was sentenced to two years in prison for robbery and protection of a criminal, aggravated crime. He is freed of any suspicion of murder.

Pettersson wonders why the courts don’t follow the law regarding age; it is the asylum seeker who must prove his age, and if he can’t he is to be considered an adult and sentenced as an adult.

Geert Wilders on racism: “80,000 social rental homes to asylum-seekers while native Dutch have to wait”

by Bart Reijmerink
July 1, 2020

Geert Wilders cannot tolerate that politicians believe that the Netherlands is racist to the bone. Asscher, in particular, must suffer in the debate on racism. The Netherlands is one of the most tolerant countries in Europe, so many provisions have been made for migrants, but it is still thought that the Netherlands is racist. Wilders can no longer entertain this nonsense, and he is ranting in the Tweede Kamer.

In recent weeks, people have liked to throw out terms such as “systemic racism”. For Wilders, this is incomprehensible because if the Netherlands is so institutionally racist, why do we in the Netherlands do such much for asylum seekers? According to Wilders, it is specifically the native Dutch who are discriminated against and not the foreigners. He cites here the example that foreigners should be given priority in rental housing.

Wilders on Twitter:

80,000 social rental homes went to asylum-seekers while natives on are a waiting list for years.

Don’t make the racism problem bigger than it is. And think, finally, of all the natives who are discriminated against!

Wilders also criticizes the fact that Lodewijk Asscher pictures the Netherlands as some kind of banana republic. This is simply a big lie according to Wilders. The Netherlands is far away one of the most tolerant countries in Europe. If we look at our legislation, Wilders is certainly right. There are a number of countries that sometimes act like barbarians with migrants, or countries that maintain naturalization and integration policies that are many times stricter.

Spengler on Militant Religiosity

“The present can only accomplish its purification by the erasure of its past.”

Below is the third of Thomas Bertonneau’s three-essay sequence on the crisis of modernity.

Spengler on Militant Religiosity

by Thomas F. Bertonneau

Oswald Spengler (1880-1936), the German historian and philosopher, devotes a suite of three chapters (VII, VIII, and IX) in his Decline of the West, Volume II (1922), to what he calls “The Problems of the Arabian Culture.” The third of these chapters, “Pythagoras, Mohammed, Cromwell,” explores the parallelisms that, in Spengler’s view, and in his use of the word, make these figures “contemporary” with one another. The same chapter also contains Spengler’s analysis of Puritanism, but not strictly in the sense of Calvinist doctrine, although he includes Calvinism in his discussion. Spengler views Puritanism as an inevitable phase of religion, one of doctrinal hardening and literalism in which a totalitarian impulse predominates. Puritanism has manifested itself in all the Great Cultures, as Spengler calls them, such as the Chinese, the Classical, and the Gothic. By “The Problems of Arabian Culture” Spengler does not mean to confine himself to a history of Monophysitism or Islam, although these come under his three-chapter remit. Spengler subsumes “Arabian Culture” under the larger category of “Magian Culture,” which embraces both Arabia Felix and Arabia Deserta but reaches far beyond them to aspects of the late Persian and Syriac societies, to the Hellenism of Alexandria, and even to the Iconoclastic centuries of Byzantium. The term Magian also reaches back in time to the late stages of Mesopotamian society. For Spengler, St. Augustine shares rather more with Islamic theology than he does, say, with St. Thomas and the Scholastics. For Spengler, the Hagia Sophia of Constantinople anticipates the mosque. To understand the chapter-sequence on “The Problems of Arabian Culture,” however, requires that Spengler’s often shocking and sometimes counter-intuitive pronouncements, like the ones just mentioned, take their place among the over-arching assumptions of The Decline.

Spengler’s opus impresses the first-time reader as a colossal improvisation. Its erudition and seeming formlessness put off many would-be explorers. Spengler’s basic propositions nevertheless lend themselves to summary. Spengler rejects the idea of a universal history. He recognizes no singular history but a number of histories in the plural, each one peculiar to its own Great Culture. Thus the Classical or Mediterranean Culture begins with the palace kingdoms of Mycenaean Greece and ends with the Severan Dynasty of the Late Second and Early Third Centuries. Indian Culture begins with the Vedas and ends with Buddhism. Western or “Faustian” Culture has its earliest glimmerings in the Eighth Century but really only leaps into being after the year 1000. Western Culture preserves a profound awareness of Classical Culture but this awareness implies, for Spengler, no actual continuity. Each Great Culture constitutes itself hermetically as an organic whole without debt to adjacent or precursor cultures. Borrowings are never essential, but only ornamental. Spengler emphasizes the organic character of culture. He regards each Great Culture as a living entity, whose mortality impends as soon as it comes to birth. Each Great Culture follows the same seasonal life-course — a vivacious and creative spring, a productive summer, a crisis-afflicted fall, and an increasingly inflexible winter. Spengler also makes a distinction between culture, as such, and civilization. Culture flourishes as the vital phase; civilization takes over as the mechanical phase, becoming more and more rigid until the machine stops.

Each Great Culture first expresses itself in a springtime outburst of religion. The Classical pantheon and associated cults already existed in late Mycenaean times; Homer and Hesiod signify a literate transformation of a long existing Apollonian worldview, as Spengler calls it. By the time of Septimius Severus (reigned 193-211), the Classical religion has become a syncretic henotheism, with one god in numerous guises, complete with a church-structure wedded to the state. Whereas the springtime paganism knew nothing of prejudice, the syncretic henotheism has codified itself as a set of compulsory dogmas. Spengler distinguishes between a Magian and a Gothic Christianity, which have little or nothing to do with one another. The latter appears with the building of the Lady Churches and with the blazing out of sacred polyphony. By the time of the Baroque, however, Catholicism has become the counterpart of syncretic henotheism. A living entity no longer, the Church distinguishes itself hardly at all from the array of explicitly secular institutions. As for Magian Christianity, Spengler classifies it as one of many apocalyptic movements that participate in the same mundial vision. These dispensations show themselves initially around the time of Alexander’s campaigns. Spengler writes in Vol. II, Chapter VIII, how “the world, as spread out for the Magian waking-consciousness, possesses a kind of extension that may be called cavern-like.” A “primary dualism” governs the world-cavern of this revelation: “The light shines through the cavern and battles the darkness.” The Magian Culture reaches its final, ossified phase when Mohammed issues his unalterable Koran and commences his coercive mission.

If social, spiritual, and intellectual rigor mortis belonged to the autumnal and hibernal chapters of the cultural life-course, this would not mean that earlier chapters exhibited no forecast of rigidification. Spasms of Puritanism occur in the vernal and estival chapters but show themselves as liable to suppression by the still-vivacious environments where they arise. The first name in the title of Spengler’s third of three chapters on “The Problems of Arabian Culture” is that of Pythagoras, whose person will be familiar to most readers through its association with the theorem of the right triangle. The lifetime of Pythagoras spans most of the Sixth Century BC, with scholarship locating his birth around 570 and his death around 495. The prevailing myth treats Pythagoras in an anodyne way: Philosopher, mystic, mathematician, vegetarian, discoverer of the cosmic harmony, and champion of animals. Pythagoras invited veneration from the Florentine Humanists and again from the French Symbolists as an idealist and altruist. The truth puts Pythagoras in quite a different light. “Pythagoras was not a philosopher,” Spengler writes; but rather, “he was a saint, prophet and founder of a fanatically religious society that forced its truths upon the people around it by every political and military means.” Croton, the Greek colony in Southern Italy where Pythagoras took up residence in middle life, raised an army under his regime that “in the bitter earnest of [its] gospel of duty duly wrecked gay Sybaris and branded it forever a city without morals.” What was that “gospel”? It consists of the “enthusiasms of a sober spirit, cold intensities, dry mysticism, [and] pedantic ecstasy.”

Pythagoreanism belongs under the category of Puritanism. Spengler defines Puritanism as a symptom of dour old-age: “It lacks the smile that had illumined the religion of the Spring… the moments of profound joy in life, the humour of life.” The destruction of Sybaris, around 510 BC, finds affirmation in both history and archaeology; the city suffered such violence that its survivors had to abandon it and take up residence elsewhere, as in Thurii. The wrath unleashed against Sybaris has lodged in the collective memory, Spengler speculates, “because it was the climax of a wild religious war… an explosion of the same hate that saw in Charles I and his gay Cavaliers not merely doctrinal error, but also worldly disposition as something that must be destroyed root and branch.” Furthermore, “A myth purified and conceptually fortified, combined with rigorous ethical precepts, imbued the Pythagoreans with the conviction that they would attain salvation before all other men.” The South-Italian cities that had come under the sway of the collective enthusiasm eventually found the furor too much to bear. Inspired by Spengler, the scholar Kurt von Fritz issued his book Pythagorean Politics in Southern Italy in 1940. Von Fritz pieces together a simultaneous multi-city uprising that in the space of a few days wreaked vengeance on the Pythagorean committees, burned down their lodges, and suppressed the fanatical portion of their following. Spengler notes that the Pythagorean writings, such as the Golden Tablets, make the promise to loyal adherents of elevation to godhood. That degree of self-satisfaction and self-righteousness could only — and soon — draw forth condign reaction.

Bombs Bursting in Air

Happy Independence Day, everyone!

This may be the last 4th of July that is celebrated according to time-honored custom. The Woke Brigades are well on the way to victory in the culture wars, and they have determined that Independence Day is a WAYCIST occasion. The intention seems to be to elevate “Juneteenth” to fill the void left by removing our major midsummer holiday. Which is interesting, because all the statues of Abraham Lincoln are being pulled down, so we will be celebrating Emancipation without acknowledging the Emancipator.

There may be more than usual number of bombs bursting in air today, if the BLAMtifa battalions make good on their promise to inflict major damage at various prominent public locations. However, the last time I looked at the news, everything seemed to be proceeding more or less normally.

I’ll be hanging around here for a while performing my normal functions, and then I’m going to visit some friends for a traditional 4th of July celebration that involves burgers and adult beverages.

Dig ya later!

African Migrant Terrorizes the Berlin S-Bahn

Last Monday a young African culture-enricher terrorized everyone, and in particular one young woman, on a suburban train in Berlin. The video below shows what happened

Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

The following article from Politically Incorrect (also translated by MissPiggy) describes what happened on the Berlin S-Bahn:

Black Man Terrorises an Entire Train Carriage

S-Bahn Berlin, Gehrenseestraße — A dark-skinned man attacks woman with dog

Martyrdom of a young woman in Berlin’s S-Bahn — Where nobody helps!

By EUGEN PRINZ | A mobile phone video that was recorded on the 29th of June in a Berlin S-Bahn [suburban train] compartment near the Gehrenseestraße stop makes it shockingly clear that unaccompanied women in Germany have become helpless fair game. It also shows how little hope the victims have that someone will come to their aid.

The video sequence begins with pictures of a nearly empty S-Bahn train compartment. Near the front exit of the train compartment we can see M.B. kneeling. She’s kneeling because she being harassed. In desperation, she is on the ground next to her family dog. Standing in front of her is a highly aggressive black man in a red t-shirt, shouting at her and calling her names.

Cries for help are not heard

The kneeling young woman keeps calling for help, while the few people in the compartment stand around indecisively. Only one young man, with wild curly hair and wearing light brown trousers, hesitantly tries in vain to verbally appease the aggressor, who is completely out of control.

When B.M. tries to stand up again, the black man stomps back over to her and shouts: “I’m f***ing your mama!” The girl fearfully holds her hand in front of her face in anticipation of being beaten.

“Can you help me, please?”, she implores the curly-haired man. The black man insults him with the words “You bastard”. When the girl tries to create distance between herself and the black man, he shouts at her several times: “Come to me! Come on, come to me!” and “You’re nobody!”

“You’re nobody!” — (Information for a Bio-German from a asylum seeker)

Unbelievable: Burly man sneaks away, without helping

While this is happening, in the foreground of the video, we can see how one of the passengers, a burly-looking young man with a backpack and white shorts, quietly and inconspicuously moves from standing at the far right end of the compartment to the nearest exit without making any effort to help the young woman.

A few seconds later the S-Bahn stops at Gehrenseestraße station. The man with the backpack leaves the compartment without further concern about what was going on just a few meters away from him. Near the exit where the young girl is standing, the sliding door of the carriage also opens. The black man uses this opportunity to push his victim out into the open with full force. The young woman is desperate because her dog is still in the carriage. Despite the presence of the attacker, she tries to get back into the compartment to her dog. This leads to further scuffles. The woman pleads more and more desperately:

“Can you help me, please, can you help me… please, can you help me… please! I’m getting beat up, please!”

Shockingly, in the background you can see that the strong, younger passenger in white shorts and with a backpack, runs away from the fight, but out of curiosity, comes back when the black man is no longer there.

How anyone can ever look at themselves in the mirror again after such behaviour is a mystery to the author.

Only the younger man with the curly head tries to dissuade the black man from his actions with a repeated loud “Hey, hey, hey”.

Luckily, the aggressor leaves the S-Bahn compartment and makes his way to the stairs of the Gehrenseestraße stop.

Victim reports on Facebook

In the meantime, the victim of the crime has made a statement on Facebook about what had happened earlier:

I actually stood up for the man with the backpack, because he was attacked before me. When he attacked me, unfortunately the man with the backpack didn’t help me…

Apparently there were also Facebook commentators who criticised the victim’s dog. Here too, the young woman had an answer:

Many thanks for the ‘Get well soon’ wishes. However, I would like to address the people who think that think my dog should have intervened. I am HAPPY that he didn’t do anything! The guy was absolutely crazy and we were locked in the moving train. I don’t know what would have happened to my dog, my best friend and a living creature for whom I have responsibility! I wouldn’t have been able to forgive myself if something happened to him! My animal is my friend and not my weapon! Thank you very much!

Federal police have identified suspects

In the meantime, the Federal police have announced that the suspect has already been identified:
