Gates of Vienna News Feed 11/21/2019

A statue of Polish King Jan III Sobieski that was originally intended to be erected near Vienna has been put on display in Krakow instead. The statue was supposed to go up on the Kahlenberg, the mountain adjacent to Vienna from which the king led the charge that broke the Siege of Vienna in 1683. Unfortunately, the Austrian government decided that it was too controversial for that location.

When the Truth Counts Against You

Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff recently spoke in Montreal, and while she was there she was interviewed by Vlad. In the video below she discusses her conviction in an Austrian court for “denigrating a recognized religion” and her subsequent series of appeals. The entire process took almost ten years and concluded at the European Court of Human Rights, which ruled against her.

She also talks about the fact that freedom of speech has disappeared in Western Europe. She points out that the USA is headed in the same direction, given that the Demonic Convergence — the alliance of the Socialist Left and Islam — is agitating against the First Amendment in its current form.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for conducting the interview and uploading the video:

The Unbearable Lightness of Being Ulf

At least one of the leaders of Sweden’s mainstream parties has put his finger to the political wind and discerned which way it is currently blowing. The following piece serves as a useful follow-up to last Sunday’s article on Lena Mellin.

No one should take Ulf Kristersson’s apology seriously

by Dan Eriksson
November 20, 2019
Svegot Media

Ulf Kristersson, the leader of the Moderate Party, apologizes and says he believes that mass immigration can create problems.

But why doesn’t he apologize to the people who really deserve it? And above all, can we rely at all on this sailor who is trimming his sails to the wind?

The negative consequences of mass immigration have become impossible to hide even from those who have previously been able to live in their own bubble, either in a part of the Swedish countryside that has been spared from multiculturalism, or for the well-off middle class in the city’s finer neighborhoods.

On the other hand, the always indelicate Prime Minister Stefan Löfven did not quite realize this, and therefore made a disastrous fool of himself in the SVT Agenda (November 17).

[The so-called “center right”] Moderate Party Chairman Ulf Kristersson has been weathering events in the wake of Löfven’s failure. He now goes out on Facebook and apologizes “for the extent that [his] party has helped to forge and freeze the voices that wanted and dared to raise the issues.”

The fact is clear that the fire is directed at Löfven and that an opportunity has occurred to use the public opinion that has now turned against the Prime Minister:

“For what Stefan Löfven cannot see at all, almost everyone else can: It is quite obvious that gang crime, shootings and executions are strongly linked to excessive immigration and woefully inadequate integration. How can you even pretend otherwise?”

Let me begin by noting two things:

Mother of Satan Comes to Berlin

A Syrian culture-enricher has been apprehended in Berlin for allegedly planning a terror attack using TATP (triacetone triperoxide), an explosive known as “Mother of Satan” for its extreme volatility.

He Was High on the List of Islamist Threats — Special Unit Police Arrest Abdullah H. in Berlin

November 19, 2019

The police have arrested a man under suspicion of terrorism in Berlin. The 26-year-old Syrian is said to have informed himself over the Internet about the construction of bombs and exchanged information. “The purpose of the chat traffic is said to have been to prepare for terrorist attacks,” the Berlin public prosecutor’s office announced on Tuesday. A special unit of the Federal Police arrested the man on Tuesday morning.

According to ARD, the arrested man is said to be Abdullah H. According to ARD reporter Holger Schmidt on Twitter, Abdullah H. is at the top of the list of dangerous Islamist groups in Germany.

Editor’s note: In a first version of the text, the suspect was described as 37 years old. The Attorney General’s Office has now corrected this statement: The arrested person is 26.

Planned attack with the “Mother of Satan”

The arrested terrorist suspect was employed as a cleaner at a primary school in the capital. Previously, he had worked until September in the Bode Museum in Berlin, said Interior Senator Andreas Geisel (SPD) on Tuesday. There was no information about a possible target for the suspect’s attack. “We assume that there was a considerable danger,” said Geisel. In evaluated chat reports, the aim was to kill as many people as possible with a terrorist attack.

He had a radical Islamist attitude and had already begun “to procure the necessary components and chemicals for the construction of an explosive device,” according to the Federal Prosecutor’s Office. In August the man allegedly bought acetone and in September hydrogen peroxide solution. “Both chemicals are needed to produce the highly explosive triacetone triperoxide (TATP). The planned bomb “was to be detonated at an unknown location in Germany at an unknown time in order to kill and injure as many people as possible”, the Federal Prosecutor’s Office further announced.

TATP is known in connection with terrorist attacks in Paris. The explosives can be produced by simple means. This makes it attractive for terrorists. In the Middle East TATP is also known as “Mother of Satan”.

Merkel Benches Come to Auckland

A reader in New Zealand just sent the following photo:


Merkel benches have arrived in New Zealand much more quietly than the recent law change and police confiscation of 30,000 privately owned semi-automatic firearms. Pictured here is fine example of Mrs Merkel’s work at a railway station in a culturally enriched area of Auckland.

Culture-Enriching Gang Rape in Krefeld

This latest report on cultural enrichment in Germany is particularly sordid. The crimes the “youths” are accused of — doping and gang-raping young women — are bad enough. But the details of the case (see the article below the video) reveal that the young ladies agreed to get drunk and have sex with one or more of the migrants, but not necessarily to be gang-banged. Did the parents of these girls never train their daughters to avoid certain dangerous social situations? It boggles the mind.

North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW): GROUP RAPE! Five men are accused of raping two women — the particularly horrifying details cause disgust in the courtroom.

They allegedly incapacitated the women with knockout drops and raped them collectively, according to the charges against five men from NRW.

Neuss. When prosecutor Thorsten Althoff cites the charges, the courtroom is horror-stricken. The charges against the five men (24 to 29 years old) from Wesel, Dinslaken, Moers and Krefeld before the district court in Neuss (NRW) are abhorrent. The defendants are said to have incapacitated the young women with knockout drops, then they were beaten and raped by them for hours.

NRW: Indictment causes horror

When the attorney for the prosecution began to quote from the video recordings made by the defendants, some spectators left the courtroom shocked, while others cried. The men made the women the “objects of their humiliation fantasies”, according to the prosecutor. “I am ashamed,” said a mother of one defendant after leaving the courtroom.

Accused of perfidious scam

The accused men called themselves “Jamal”, “Sammy”, “Momo”, “Memo” or “Bilal”. They did not want to reveal their real identity to the women, as most of them had girlfriends. According to the prosecution, their scam was always same. “The victims were not completely unknown to the accused. Among other things, they had met them at a dance club in Düsseldorf,” explains court spokesman Alexander Lembke.

According to the public prosecutor’s office, there were two rapes and one attempted rape. A defendant is also accused of dangerous bodily harm.

The accused acts

Mehmet Y. (24) and Amro L. (25) are said to have met with two young women in the apartment of one of the defendants on 15 February. They are said to have mixed K.O. drops with vodka energy into a woman’s glass. The other woman was brought to the apartment by the defendant Taycan A. (25), the only defendant out on bail. Achmed D. (25) joined after a call from the other two men. Together, the group are said to have raped and humiliated the defenseless woman for hours. According to the indictment, she could not remember anything later due to the anaesthesia. The accused filmed the deeds.

All the Leaves Are Brown…

I’ve held off posting this wrap-up about the Autumn fundraiser because I was kind of waiting to see if more of my thank-you notes would bounce. However, I’m still writing them, and I’ve got quite a ways to go. So this is an interim update, and if anything else bounces, I’ll post a further update.

Just three thank-you notes have bounced so far, after two attempts apiece. The intended recipient of the first lives in Southern California.

The second one listed no address with PayPal, so I can’t tell you his location. All I know is that his name makes it likely that he is an Anglophone.

The third is in Georgia (the one in Dixie, not the Caucasus).

If you’re missing a thank-you note, that may the reason. On the other hand, you may be one of the people I haven’t written yet!

The most interesting comment I got in reply was this:

In your fundraising posts, you may wish to consider bragging a bit more about niche, reach, influence, etc., e.g.: “The ONLY/BEST daily roundup of news from non-US sources, with UNIQUE videos and translations.” I know of no other source for this info.

He’s probably right. But I told him that I’m a severe introvert, and not inclined to brag. It just goes against the grain. Yes, more self-promotion would probably be a good idea, but this dog is too old to learn new tricks.

Ethnic Replacement à la Thuringian

Akif Pirinçci is a Turkish-German fiction writer who in recent years has taken up social and political commentary. Incidentally, based on my understanding of Turkish orthography, Mr. Pirinçci’s surname is pronounced “Pirinsky”, which indicates that his family is of Slavic origin. Were his ancestors perhaps Bulgarians who were forcibly incorporated into the Ottoman Empire?

Many thanks to JLH for translating this piece from Politically Incorrect:

Ethnic Replacement à la Thuringian

by Akif Pirinçci

When my book Umvolkung (“Ethnic Replacement”) appeared, it was, as expected, hardly reviewed at all by the German MSM, and even if it was, it was perceived as the spreading of so-called rabble-rousing, exploring incitement against peoples and all the rest of the Nazi nonsense. From that time to now, the method of silencing by means of the establishment media has been established as the most effective.

Naturally the book — like all my books, by the way — was and is not available through the book trade and later could be acquired on the internet only at Amazon Marketplace. Nonetheless,70,000 copies of Umvolkung have been sold to date by my wholly owned publisher, Antalos Verlag.

And not just that. The concept I borrowed from the National Socialists of ethnic replacement has since become a “wingèd word”, which enrages both the neutral observers of the continuing, already vast ethnic replacement and its deniers. The latter mock the phenomenon as a rightist conspiracy theory, although — living as they do in the middle of the country — it may be difficult for them to hear the German language for a full five minutes at a time.

As to the Nazis, I explain clearly in my book that ethnic replacement at that time was, and remained, merely a fantasy of their elite. In contrast, today’s Germany is not actually exchanging its population, but consciously creating circumstances which people can only escape by emigration, forced acceptance of what is culturally alien or involuntary genocide by ceasing to reproduce.

Ethnic replacement is caused by changing the rules for the continued existence of a people so that anyone who resists is faced — in the name of a presumptuous interpretation of human dignity and of the sock puppet of humanism — with criminalization, denial of livelihood and exclusion from society and participation in social life. Any objection to the compulsory loss of homeland and the nature of its native people with the natural rejection of what is alien is now seen as a crime, which almost always has legal, or at least professional consequences.

Until recently, such thoughts were regarded as hallucinatory, as fantasy scenarios dreamed up by xenophobic rightist paranoiacs mutually self-escalating on the internet like Nazi talk among Nazis. But since the election in Thuringia, in which the evil AfD won only 25% of the vote that stood for the battle against ethnic replacement, the ladies and gentlemen of the press have dropped the mask. They really want ethnic replacement!

An excellent example of that is the October 27, 2019 article by a certain Christian Bangel at ZEIT-online, entitled “Nothing is lost”. Actually it is the usual lousy Green-Leftist dreck, indicating that anyone who thinks differently and votes as a moderate deserves to be liquidated. But for the first time an explicit guide to achieving the goal of ethnic replacement is offered by a renowned organ of the press. It is hidden on page 2.
