Don’t Believe in Climate Change? You Jew-Hater!

Piers Corbyn is the brother of Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the Labour Party in the UK. The former Corbyn is a climate physicist, who caused a stir recently when he spoke in the German Bundestag and departed from the Narrative on climate change. As a result of his heresy, he was accused of being an anti-Semite — as if that had anything to do with the issue.

I notice that the unfortunate Mr. Corbyn (Piers, that is) made the mistake of engaging the issue, and denying that he was an anti-Semite. He trotted out the classic defense: he has a lot of Jewish friends. This was a mistake. As I have said in the past, defending oneself against charges of racism is to take part in a mug’s game. You can’t help but lose. The deck is stacked against you. To go on defense is to lose ground.

As for his brother Jeremy not being a Jew-hater: if he isn’t one, he does a darned good imitation. Maybe he’s just pandering to the Jew-haters (especially the Muslim ones) in the Labour Party’s base.

Piers Corbyn gave his presentation and answered questions in English, with a simultaneous voice-over in German. MissPiggy has translated the German parts, and when the English parts were masked by the voice-over, she translated the German translation. I edited and formatted the resulting text, so the English in the subtitles may differ slightly here and there from Mr. Corbyn’s actual words.

Och, the Puir Wee ISIS Bairns!

The following story provides some of the background for the essay by H. Numan that I posted earlier this evening.

Many thanks to FouseSquawk for translating this article from the Dutch news portal NU:

Court: State must make effort to bring 56 children back from Syria

November 11, 2019

The Dutch state must make efforts to bring 56 children and possibly their 19 mothers out of Syria to the Netherlands. That was the ruling of the court in the Hague in a summary proceeding on Monday.

Judgment on taking back Islamic State children

Their mothers can only be brought back if there is no other option.

The government must take action within 14 days

The summary proceeding was brought due to the acute danger in the camps in Syria.

The Netherlands has the duty to make efforts to bring back IS children

According to the court, The Netherlands cannot be forced to repatriate the children because of the danger due to the unstable situation in Syria.

“The State does not need to take unnecessary security risks, but it must take advantage of all possibilities, such as help provided by the Americans,” according to the court.

That means that the Dutch government does what is in its power. If the government says that it is not possible, it must show evidence that it has done everything possible.

That means, according to the attorney Andre Seebregts, who represents the majority of plaintiffs, that the Netherlands, within the mandated time of 14 days, must make contact with the Kurds as well as the Americans.

The Kurds maintain control over the camps where the women and children are kept. The Americans have let it be known that they want them to be taken to the Netherlands.

If I Had a Hammer…

Many thanks to MissPiggy for translating the latest cultural enrichment news from Dresden, as reported by Bild:

Man Complained About the Noise

Child (12) attacks passenger with emergency hammer

by Bernhard Schilz
November 11, 2019

Dresden — Brutal attack on a passenger (36) in a Dresden bus. A 36-year-old man had boarded a bus in Dresden-Gruna at about 10.30 p.m. and complained about a group of noisy children and teenagers. Police spokesman Marko Laske (45): “The man asked the group to be a little quieter. A 12-year-old boy then hit him on the head with an emergency hammer.”

The man suffered a head wound and had to be treated at an emergency room. The police assume that the hammer was stolen on the bus by the Afghan-born boy shortly before the crime. Although the crime happened last Friday, it was not reported in the police report. Laske: “The reason in this case is the particularly protection-worthy interest of the criminal child.” The police will investigate the case, but the perpetrator gets away with it.

They’re Coming to Take Me Away, Ha Ha!

In his latest essay H. Numan discusses the Dutch mujahidettes for ISIS, who will be repatriated along with their children from Syria to the Netherlands.

They’re coming to take me away, ha ha!

by H. Numan

Dutch judges decided they should run the country. Not the government and certainly not parliament. At this moment we seem to have a ‘nitrogen crisis’. Not the stuff in the air, mind you. Parliament voted for impossibly high standards for nitrogen in products, such as fertilizer. Encouraged by extreme left-wing environmentalist lobbyists. Those standards are no less than 400X the German standard — which already was extreme. Imagine you buy a little pot of fertilizer in the supermarket for your plants on the balcony. Take that little pot to Yellowstone National Park. Dump the contents there. In Holland that ground will be considered seriously polluted. You’ll be liable for cleanup costs and a huge fine.

The government takes this very seriously. Building projects are closed for this reason. They want to lower the speed limit from 130 kmh to 90 kmh (80 mph to 55 mph). Mark Rutte, our dear leader, promises that way 75,000 new houses can be built. I fail to see any relation between speed on the highways and building houses, but I’m a dumb idiot who’s just supposed to vote for dear Mark. Not use my brain. That impossibly high standard is being now strictly and rigidly enforced by the courts. Why? Because of sloppy legislation being used for what it was not intended.

Sloppy legislation being abused goes a lot further than that. A judge has decided that the Dutch government must make efforts to repatriate Dutch ISIS children from Syria. The court didn’t order the mothers to be repatriated as well. But the law clearly says children cannot be separated from their mothers. You do the math…

Dear Mark always said repatriation was out of the question. However, Mark’s promises in the past are about as solid as those of a certain Austrian Gefreiter about 90 years ago.

Let’s dig into this issue, shall we? A number of young horny silly Dutch goats fell in love with mohammedan boys. Those boys were or became very strict mohammedans. Being young and silly goats, they wanted lots of attention. So they converted to the religion and lived according to the strictest interpretation of sharia law. Their husbands decided they wanted to fight in Syria for the caliphate, and took their wives with them. In Syria not just the mohammedan ‘Dutch’ men committed lots of atrocities and participated in genocide. So did their wives. Surviving witnesses say, without exception, the European wives of jihadists were the most sadistic and vigilant supporters of sharia law.

We’re not talking about young girls making stupid mistakes here. Everybody does that. This goes far beyond it. Compare it with wives of SSers. Almost none were prosecuted, as the SS kept work and family separated. It would be a very different story if an SS officer brought his wife to work, where she asked for a whip and started beating up concentration camp inmates.

What I have noticed over the years is that progressives are extremely lenient about mistakes made in the past. But only when it applies to themselves. They have absolutely no mercy at all for anyone else, especially if you are conservative. Ex-senator Wijnand Duyvendak was in younger years an extreme left-wing terrorist. Not an zealous activist but an outright terrorist. He wasn’t caught and changed from terrorist into politician. As an extreme left-wing politician he rose through the ranks to become a senator. Only because on TV he openly admitted being a member of RaRa did we find out. His mistake was that he thought his crimes had already expired, so he could talk about them on TV. It cost him his senate seat and nothing else. After all, we all make mistakes when we are young, don’t we?

Now, I served in the military. I told a military story on a forum. One of the members was a troll, and reported me to Kafka, which is an extreme left-wing intelligence gathering group. That story was published as an example of extreme right-wing activism, with my full name and unit. It’s still online. It hampered my career. Happened about 25 years ago. But forgiveness for others is not on the agenda of progressives.

The same applies to these wannabe refugee girls. They have been interviewed by Dutch media after the capture of Raqqa. Yes, they admit they made a mistake. While wearing the full burka. With gloves, so as not to be infected by infidels. They speak with go-betweens against male journalists as they themselves — for religious reasons — cannot talk to men. That’s indirectly stating that the only mistake they made was losing the war.

Too Many White People

Staffanstorp is a town in southern Sweden that is quite different from its infamous culturally enriched neighbor Malmö. You see, Staffanstorp is not enriched — it is populated mainly by Swedes, which means — gasp! — white people. For that reason it’s more like Sweden-That-Was: it has a low crime rate, cultural cohesiveness, and public spaces that have not yet been ruined or made dangerous — the attributes of a non-multicultural town.

Staffanstorp wants to attract new residents without bringing in third-world immigrants, so it has created an advertising video that highlights exactly those features that would attract traditional Swedes. Needless to say, the ad has caused an uproar, since it is too “white” to be acceptable in Modern Multicultural Sweden.

At the beginning of the video a Swedish family walks past a group of sullen and dangerous-looking “youths” in a place that is not identified as Malmö, but has its typical characteristics. I noticed that the makers of the video took care not to include any brown people among the young troublemakers — they all look pretty Caucasian to me. Some of them might be Bosnians or Albanians, but they aren’t “Middle Eastern” in appearance.

Unfortunately for Staffanstorp, that wasn’t enough to exempt the municipality from accusations of racism. When your town is populated by white people, you’re out of luck — you’re by definition “racist”.

Many thanks to Tania Groth for translating this article from the Danish daily Berlingske and the accompanying video:

A Swedish municipality is being criticized for an advertising video: “This is the most disgusting thing I have seen in a long time”

Malmö’s neighboring municipality of Staffanstorp is being criticized for an advertising film showing a battered Malmö and a quiet and idyllic Staffanstorp.

The sound of sirens mingles with sad underlying music as a mother and daughter are filmed in black and white walking down a street in Malmö. They start running, anxiously, as a group of young men who look like they might be gang members throw a can at them.

“Many of us wake up in a city we once called our hometown,” says a speaker in Swedish and continues:

“But the growing insecurity and the feeling of exclusion have left many feeling lost.”

[Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling.]

Shortly thereafter, we see a clip of fields, smiling people, cheerful background music — in color. According to the video this is what awaits you if you move to the Swedish municipality of Staffanstorp.

“There are municipalities where security, care for the elderly, and schools really work,” says the speaker, while showing pictures of brightly smiling white-only people.

Eventually Staffanstorp is shown from the above, while the text: “Staffanstorp Municipality — The way the rest of Sweden should be”.

A propaganda film

The film was made by Staffanstorp Municipality — Malmö’s neighboring municipality. They call it an “information film” and the goal is to attract new residents to the municipality. But the film has some Swedes up in arms, especially on social media.

One of the film’s critics is the social democratic politician Torbjörn Lövendahl.

“It is a political propaganda film, not an information film,” he tells Skånska Dagbladet.

According to Expressen.se, the immigration-critical sites “Fria Tider” and “Nordfront” have also opened their eyes to the film. They write that the film is aimed at “people who are affected, and have had enough of the multicultural society”.

Bring Out Your Dead!

Here’s another curious case of African customs in Germany, this time in Hamburg. Maybe this is simply how they dispose of dead people in Africa.

Many thanks to MissPiggy for translating this article from the Hamburger Morgenpost:

Bizarre case in Hamburg — Who dragged the dead woman onto the street ?

BRAMFELD, Hamburg — This case is absolutely bizarre: A woman is carried out of an apartment building in Hamburg. She is dead. A neighbour accidentally sees the scene in the residential area near Scheidingweg, and informs the police. The first suspicion: the woman may have been killed. But then the investigation takes a bizarre turn. In the end many question marks remain.

A neighbour in Bramfeld saw from his balcony how a lifeless person was simply laid on the street. The next day he says to the MorgenPost: “At first I thought it was just garbage. But then he tugged at it like that. And then I saw the arm!”

The man searched for his cell phone and immediately called 911. Since a homicide had to be assumed at first, the police went out with a large contingent.

Forensic medicine in Hamburg must clarify how the woman died. The deceased is a 50-year-old woman from Ghana. However, it cannot be assumed that she was killed. “There is every reason to believe that she died of an illness,” a police spokesman said. Forensic medicine will clarify the cause of death. A autopsy was ordered.

The fact that the woman had been suffering from an illness for a long time was also confirmed by residents of the building from which the woman’s body was carried.

Hamburg: Corpse found — police search flats

The police officers, together with colleagues from the fire brigade and the State Criminal Police Office, were active throughout the night. In addition to questioning local residents, some apartments were also searched.

The investigation led the police to a neighboring apartment where the woman probably lived before her death. A 37-year-old man from the apartment and a 55-year-old man whom the police had previously met on the sidewalk next to the body were temporarily arrested.

Who Pulled the Plug on the Muezzin?

A few weeks ago we featured the preparations for the first public call to prayer (adhan) from the Blue Mosque in Amsterdam. When the big day arrived, however, there was a little problem — the mosque’s rooftop PA system experienced an inexplicable failure.

Many thanks to C for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling. The translator includes these notes:

They’re taking the sabotage rather well, it seems. That spokesman may look familiar: he’s Nourdeen Wildeman, a convert who appeared in earlier videos. He knows how to sound reasonable and civilized in front of a camera, in the Dutch context.

However, despite the PR, it’s still a Kuwait-backed mosque that regularly hosts extremist speakers.

Operation Roncesvalles

The following video features an appearance on RTL by Eric Zemmour, a popular French commentator. What Mr. Zemmour describes, if true, is quite significant: The French army has prepared a battle plan for retaking French territory that has been colonized by Islam.

Many thanks to Ava Lon for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling. The translator includes this introductory note:

When Zemmour mentions Operation Ronces, it would make most educated people in France think of Battle of Roncesvalles, Ronceval or Roncevaux (the Valley or Valleys of Ronces) in 778 A.D. — Charlemagne against the Moors (and not against the Basques, the PC version of the events, which incidentally is also denied by Muslim sources, which say: we attacked Charlemagne in the Roncesvalles/Roncevaux/Ronceval Pass). And I would be surprised if hinting at that battle wasn’t the intention of the French Joint Chiefs of Staff when they called this Reconquista operational plan “Ronces”.

Roncesvalles, now part of Spain, was an important stop on the pilgrimage route to and from Santiago de Compostela.
