Muslimas on Patrol in Sweden

The video below is one of those unusual projects that required a lot of coordination among speakers of various languages. It was recorded in Sweden, but the language spoken is Arabic, with German subtitles added. So we had to ask a German to help with an Arabic-language video from Sweden — a peculiar situation.

There are a couple of things to note about this video. First, this is obviously a sharia patrol that the Muslimas have organized. The “youths” they are trying to manage do not accept being bound by the laws of the hated kuffar, but they tend to listen to the authoritative voices of mature women of the Muslim community.

Secondly, the patrols organized by the Muslim ladies take place on Fridays — that is, the days when the young Muslim bucks have been fired up with Islamic zeal by imams giving sermons in the mosques. The boys then burst onto the streets, itching to break windows and rape and set fire to anything that the unbelievers own or control. The women patrol the streets to keep them in line and prevent them from acting prematurely, before their numbers are sufficient to ensure complete victory over the kuffar.

At least, that’s the way that I read it.

Sic Semper Tyrannis


(Click to enlarge [Hat tip: WRSA])

I’m in a cheerful mood this evening after reading the local news. As you can see from the map above, the deplorable rural hinterlands of Virginia, where citizens cling bitterly to guns and religion, have voted overwhelmingly to declare their localities 2nd Amendment Sanctuaries.

I don’t know Pulaski and Montgomery well enough to venture an opinion, but I expect Franklin, Prince Edward, Lunenberg, and Amelia to follow suit when their boards of supervisors vote.

Virginia turned blue last month because the banlieues of The Wretched Hive of Scum and Villainy (Northern Virginia) — and to a lesser extent Norfolk, Virginia Beach, and Richmond — are packed to the gills with millions of Yankees and foreigners. But it’s different out here in the boonies, where the memory of our ancient liberties is still fresh. After all, it was Virginia’s most famous son, Thomas Jefferson, who said: “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.”

The local papers are the best place to keep up with news on such topics. As you know, I’ve been reading The Farmville Herald online lately. I’ve maxed out the number of articles I can access without paying for a subscription, so I can’t give you all the interesting links. However, here’s a snip from an article by the redoubtable Alexa Massey about the vote by the Cumberland County Board of Supervisors a couple of days ago:

Sanctuary resolution adopted

by Alexa Massey

At the Dec. 10 Cumberland County Board of Supervisors meeting the board voted unanimously, 3-0, to pass a resolution declaring Cumberland County to be a Second Amendment sanctuary. District Two Supervisor Lloyd Banks was not present at the meeting and therefore did not participate in the vote.

The full resolution is as follows:

WHEREAS, the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed,” and,

WHEREAS, the United States Supreme Court in District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008), affirmed an individual’s right to possess firearms, unconnected with service in a militia, for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home, and

WHEREAS, the United States Supreme Court in McDonald v. Chicago, 561 U.S. 742 (2010), affirmed that the right of an individual to “keep and bear arms,” as protected under the Second Amendment, is incorporated by the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment against the states, and

[…]

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Board of Supervisors of Cumberland County Virginia:

That the Cumberland Board of Supervisors hereby declares Cumberland County, Virginia, as a “Second Amendment sanctuary,” and

That the Cumberland Board of Supervisors hereby expresses its intent to uphold the Second Amendment rights of the citizens of Cumberland County, Virginia, and

That the Cumberland Board of Supervisors hereby expresses its intent that public funds of the county not be used to restrict the Second Amendment rights of the citizens of Cumberland County, or to aid federal or state agencies in the restriction of said rights, and

That the Cumberland Board of Supervisors hereby declares its intent to oppose any infringement on the right of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms using such legal means as may be expedient, including, without limitation, court action.

That really warms my heart. And the description of the response by the crowd attending the meeting provides additional inspiration:

According to exit polls, the “Conservative” Party under Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson has won a landslide victory in today’s general election in the UK. The Tories are expected to win 386 seats in Parliament, while Labour under Jeremy Corbyn appears to be headed for its worst result since 1935.

In other news, Virginia Governor Ralph “Coonman” Northam warned that there would be “consequences” for county sheriffs in 2nd Amendment Sanctuary counties if they don’t enforce whatever gun control measures the legislature passes in Richmond.

A Victim of the Swedish Opinion Police

Åsa Westerberg is a Swedish anti-sharia activist who has spoken out against the intolerance and misogyny of Islam on multiple occasions. “New Swedes” who adhere to the religion of peace have denounced her to the police frequently enough that she has now been harassed several times by special anti-“hate” goon squads of the police. The police tactics that she describes below are stunningly totalitarian.

The Forbidden City

Chances are, anyone who is having the problem described below is unable to read this post.

I’ll explain what happened: Late Monday night I started to get reports on skype and by email that people were getting a “403” error when they tried to access Gates of Vienna. The actual text of the message varied, depending on the browser and operating system, but it would look something like this:

You don’t have permission to access this resource.

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Since I am a technical dunce when it comes to website mechanics, I consulted with Vlad Tepes and Henrik Clausen about what was happening. They looked into it, and it seemed that a crucial setting on the site was disabled for some reason, and needed to be enabled. Henrik enabled it, and over the next 36 hours people reported back to me that they were once again able to access Gates of Vienna. So everything was fixed.

But only for about 36 hours. I started getting messages today from the same people, and also additional ones, that the same error message was popping up when they tried to visit this site. It’s only happening in Europe and Israel, as far as I know. I’m getting no emails from the USA, Canada, or Australia about the “403 Forbidden” message. Countries affected include the UK, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Hungary, Romania, and Israel. And probably others that I’m forgetting. But not on this side of the Atlantic.

I consulted at length with the hosting service, and the setting that Henrik enabled was still enabled. They can’t recreate the problem, since they’re in the USA. So there’s nothing more they can do unless I can give them specific instructions about what needs to be changed.

Something is fishy here. One time could be just a random glitch, but twice? And all within less than 48 hours.

My paranoid intuition says that when whatever it was the major ISPs in Europe tried to do two days ago failed — that is, when Henrik enabled the setting. So they decided to try something else to accomplish the same purpose. I don’t believe this is a coincidental, accidental malfunction — I think it is deliberate.

But then, I’m paranoid.

So… If you have friends, relatives, or acquaintances that report this problem, please explain what I have posted here. And most of the significant content I post is also posted at Vlad’s place, so they can go over there to stay somewhat up-to-date.

I don’t think this is an issue in the USA because not many people are very interested in what’s going on in Europe. I don’t report on Adam Schiff, Jerrold Nadler, Nancy Pelosi, Bill Barr, or any other facet of the impeachment circus. I leave that to the specialists, and that’s where all the American traffic tends to go.

But this blog has a wide readership in Europe. Or rather, had — I think my European traffic is probably significantly reduced by now.

The two shooters at who killed four people (including three at a kosher grocery) in Jersey City yesterday have been identified as David Anderson and Francine Graham. Mr. Anderson is alleged to have had a connection to the Black Hebrew Israelite movement, the same group that taunted white Covington Catholic High School Students at the Lincoln Memorial last winter.

In other news, on the eve of the general election in the UK, the gap between the Tories and Labour has narrowed to 9% in the latest polls.

A Fatal Encounter in Augsburg

Last Friday a fireman was killed by culture-enrichers in the German city of Augsburg. While he was out for the evening with his wife, the fireman became involved in some sort of disagreement with a group of seven “youths”, most of whom had multiple citizenships — Turkish and Lebanese in addition to German. The seven culture-enrichers surrounded the unfortunate fireman, and he was felled by a single blow to the head. He died of his wounds with his wife looking on in horror.

The following videos and text reports give an account of what happened that night in Augsburg. Many thanks to MissPiggy for all the translations (video and text), and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling.

Video #1 — Fireman killed in Augsburg:

Video #2 — Augsburg homicide press conference:

The accompanying notes from the original video:

Germany: Seventh suspect arrested in connection with firefighter’s killing

A seventh suspect has been arrested over the death of a firefighter during an altercation in Augsburg according to police in the southern German city on Monday.

Gerhard Zintl, the leader of the Criminal Police Inspection, described how the police were able to identify the suspects using surveillance footage from the Christmas market, where the attack took place. He described how the man was “suddenly surrounded by these seven young men. Then there was a blow. The man fell to the ground,” before “the group went to the other, second man, who wanted to come to the aid of the first and subsequently fatal victim; and was attacked and also seriously injured on the face.”

The firefighter had been enjoying the evening at the Christmas market with his wife and friends before being attacked by a group of “seven young men.” He was fatally struck on the head before his friend tried to come to his aid and was also seriously injured. Police reportedly attempted to resuscitate the victim at the scene, but he died in the ambulance. The women were unharmed.

Details emerged regarding the suspects’ nationalities, of which six had dual German and Turkish nationality, one of the six had a third nationality (Lebanese) and the seventh had Italian nationality. Two of the suspects are 17 years old, including the main culprit, who was already known by the police for “assault.”

The seventh suspect was apprehended following an investigation and a manhunt. The police are not looking for any further suspects.

Over 100 firefighters paid their condolences at a vigil at the scene of the crime on Sunday.

Video #3 — Petr Bystron of the AfD attacked by Antifa while laying a wreath at the memorial for the fireman:

The accompanying notes from the original video:

Petr Bystron, member of the Bundestag and the Alternative for Germany in the state of Bavaria, visits the memorial for the murdered Fireman in Augsburg (also in Bavaria). He gets attacked by Antifa members physically and verbally. They damage the wreath he brought by ripping off the ribbons. The police treat him like the criminal, tell him to calm down and ask him to show his identification (for wanting to pay his respects).

Brexit on the Sands of Time

Tomorrow is the big day in the UK: the General Election. Will Boris Johnson remain Prime Minister, and implement some sort of faux-Brexit? Or will we have to endure a government under the ghastly Jeremy Corbyn?

Our English correspondent Seneca III sends his thoughts on these and other matters.

Brexit on the Sands of Time

by Seneca III

Above all things the Brexit Circus has given us a metaphorical microscope with which to examine the putrid innards of the Palace of Westminster and far beyond. It has exposed in detail the full extent of the devious workings of the establishment and its fellow travellers and their blatant contempt for democracy. It has most of all peeled back layer by layer the darkly flawed construct that is the EU and revealed the motivations, control mechanisms and future intent of those presumptive masters across the ditch.

The EU and, to a lesser extent the USA, thanks to what remains of its once sound constitutional foundations, are both monoliths built with good intent but now drowning in an ideological cesspit created by a political class consumed by an insatiable lust for power.

For as long as these huge, centralised constructs attempt to force one law, one retrogressive culture and one sort of politics on all different demographics trapped within their sphere of influence there will be resistance. Neither will China, in the longer term, be an exception.

In the US and the EU the founding objective of both continental collectives was to take their destinies solely within their own compass, justifiably in the former, case but the complete opposite in the latter. In the Old Dominion it was done openly after years of requesting reasonable and equal treatment (No taxation without representation!) by the Crown, but in the EU, starting after the secretive, early Bilderberg Conferences which culminated in the birth of the apparently benign EEC, it was accomplished surreptitiously by guile, back-room conspiracies, subterfuge, self-interest and lie after lie after lie… a process our own malignant collection of morally destitute and arrogant political classes here in the UK aided and abetted with alacrity.

Yet, on both sides of the pond, the current mindset remains recalcitrant and will not easily take to the threat of an existence bereft of individual freedoms in a vast human hive controlled by the few for the benefit of the few, not the many.

Early this afternoon, police in Jersey City, New Jersey spotted two homicide suspects in a cemetery. When approached, the men opened fire, killing a police officer. The suspects fled and entered a nearby kosher market, where they started shooting at bystanders. Three civilians were killed, and the two suspects were found dead inside the market.

In other news, the School Inspectorate in the Swedish city of Gothenburg forced the closure of an Islamic school due to concerns that it might be radicalizing students.

A Mosque in Every German Village

Never mind a chicken in every pot — we want a mosque in every village!

Many thanks to MissPiggy for translating this article from Philosophia Perennis:

Erfurt politician on new mosque construction: “Build until every village has a mosque…”

(David Berger) “‘No new mosque building in Erfurt.’ Nazis stickers on lamps on our mosque grounds. The mosque will be built, then another one will be built, and then another one and then many more. Until every village has a mosque! Nazis will certainly not stop us.” — tweeted Suleman Malik, Deputy Mayor of Erfurt.

Our tweet of the day comes from Suleman Malik, who calls himself the “first Muslim local politician of Thuringia and deputy mayor of Erfurt.” He tweets under the motto “Love for all, hate for none”. He shows his love to the citizens of Erfurt by the fact that he announces that the new mosque building in their city is just the beginning:

Today Erfurt belongs to us, tomorrow the whole world belongs to us

“The mosque will be built, then another will be built, and then another and then many more. Until every village has a mosque!”

Nazis have nothing against mosques — quite the contrary

And the provocation is effective. Suleman’s kind of “love” is met with fierce resistance. “Germany was and is a Christian country. How about for every mosque built in Germany, a Christian church is built in a Muslim country for the Christian minority, and how about stopping the persecution of the Christian minority as well,” replies one of the Twitter users to him.

And another asks: “Why would Nazis do that? Historically, Nazis have nothing at all against the spread of Islam. Quite the opposite. They saw Muslims as brothers in spirit. But you like to frame it that way to discredit any protest, right?”

And PP guest author Ed Piper notes: The “until every village has a mosque” slogan seems like a Nazi statement to me — especially if it comes from someone who belongs to a Muslim sect, who actively practices gender apartheid and lives hostility against homosexuals.”

A Christmas Greeting From Hungary

The video below was produced by the Hungarian government and uploaded to Facebook by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, along with a brief message: “With this video I wish a blessed peaceful Christmas to every one of you and all of our readers, from Hungary!”

To Our Cloying Mistresses

For a change of pace, here’s a riff by JLH on a well-known poem by the great Metaphysical poet Andrew Marvell.

To:   Nancy forever-the-Speaker Pelosi, A I-despise-my-constituents OC, “truly Illegal” Omar, Rash and-then-some Tlaib, Alyssa my-bottom-is my-best-known-feature Milano, Jane if-I-can’t-be-a world-class-beauty-I-can-be-a-world-class-jerk Fonda, and honorary “mean girls” Adam my-pencil-neck-constricts-my-thinking Schiff and Gerald they-sucked-out-my-fat-and-some-of-my-brain Nadler
 

To Our Cloying Mistresses

by JLH, with apologies to Andrew Marvell

Had we but world enough and time,
This nonsense, ladies, were less a crime.
We could leisurely propose a bill,
That just might heal the nation’s ills.
And tarry by Potomac’s rush
To declaim the nation’s debt to us.
Non-partisan, we’d find a way
To pass the tardy USMCA.
We’d debate in principle, friendship and calm
Until the conversion of all Islam.
We’d reduce our pay and also our pension
And never again give “pork” a mention.
We’d praise our nation, which is like no other
And greet new citizens as sister and brother.
We’d praise each of us of any race or station
Who freely chooses to love this nation.

But at your back you too must hear
The next election hurrying near.
Your power, as all power must,
Will shrivel up and turn to dust,
And as an hourglass’s sands,
Will trickle through your nerveless hands.
Consider, as you greatly dare:
Defeat is something no one shares.

While capable still of reasoned thought,
Compare what you “may” to what you “ought”.
And think while in the light of day,
Unlike nocturnal birds of prey,
How to squeeze yourself, if you are quick
Through the iron gate of politics.
And seek relief by setting free
Again this land of liberty.
