Gates of Vienna News Feed 2/20/2022

Shooting broke out on Saturday night at a rally in Portland involving Antifa militants. A woman was killed and five others were wounded. Some reports say the rally was prompted by the sentencing of former Minnesota policewoman Kim Potter, who shot a black man named Daunte Wright to death last year. Other reports identify it as a “Justice for Amir Locke” solidarity rally, referring to a black man who was shot to death by police in Minneapolis earlier this year. Portland police held a press conference today about Saturday’s shooting incident, but it ended prematurely due to the threatening behavior of Antifa activists in attendance.

In other news, the mayor of Ottawa said that the city will sell off the confiscated vehicles of freedom protesters to help pay for the costs of policing the Freedom Convoy protests in the city.

Cruz: If Durham Filing True, ‘It’s a Lot Bigger Than Watergate’ — People Need to Go to Jail

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) said on this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday” that if special counsel John Durham’s allegations in his recent legal filings were true, it is worse the Nixon-era Watergate scandal.

Cruz said, “We have to see what the facts are, the allegations, what he filed in federal court, is deeply concerning. What he alleged as a federal prosecutor, a special prosecutor, is that a lawyer for the Hillary Clinton campaign conspired with a big tech executive to monitor and spy on Donald Trump, to spy on him at his home, to spy on him at his office, and indeed they were spying on the White House itself. They were spying on a sitting president.”

Earlier last week, Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act to clamp down on the Freedom Convoy protesters demonstrating against the government’s COVID-19 restrictions. The suppression has led to arrests, the freezing of financial accounts, and even officials treatening to confiscate the pets of detainees.

Hindutva Leader Seeks Ban on Radical Islamic Orgs in India

BJP is allowing organisations like AIMIM, SDPI, PFI, CFI etc. to grow for division Muslim vote bank of Congress. It is high time to ban them.

B Upendran | HENB | Belagavi | Feb 20, 2022:: Sri Ram Sene Founder and veteran Hindutva leader, Pramod Mutalik, has sought a ban on radical Muslim organisations like People’s Front of India (PFI), SDPI (Secular Democratic Party of India), AIMIM (All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen) and Campus Front of India (CFI), saying that they were anti-national organisations grossly engaged in divisive activities.

Several leaders, including Pinarayi Vijayan, Kerala Chief Minister, have written to the Union Government, seeking a ban on these organisations. Earlier, a request had also been made to the former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, but he did not approve it for political reasons. However, it is time to take this bold step, he told journalists in Bagalkot on Sunday.

Now, some Congress leaders from the minority community are demanding a ban on these organisations. If these organisations are not banned now, they will end up destroying India with terrorism, he said.

He reiterated that the hijab is a symbol of suppression of women rights in religion and it should be banned. But, bindi and bangles worn by Hindu women are symbols of culture. Some Muslim leaders are equating hijab with bindi and bangles. They are not equal and cannot be equated. They should be treated separately. While bindi and bangles are a sign of the culture of this land, hijab is a sign of increasing islamisation of this country. There is no comparison, he said.

Promod Mutalik slams BJP saying, they are allowing organisations like AIMIM, SDPI, PFI, CFI etc. to grow for division Muslim vote bank of Congress. “It’s the BJP itself which is allowing these communal parties to grow and it is time to take bold steps to ban all such communal parties,” says Mutalik.

Mutalik also warned that Sri Ram Sene members will teach a fitting lesson to all those who are speaking against bindi and bangles or other signs of Hinduism.

While former CM Karnataka and present leader of the opposition in Karnataka Legislative Assembly, Siddaramaiah opposed the version of Mutalik; the reaction of BJP is still awaited.

Biden’s Handlers Dumping 16,000 Afghan ‘Translators’ in Loudoun County, Most Don’t Speak English

On Thursday, the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) published a press release that reveals the truly astonishing extent of the administration’s high-handedness, dishonesty, carelessness, and recklessness in its resettlement of Afghan refugees in cities and towns all over the United States. Without any prior warning, Loudoun County officials were told that 2,000 Afghan refugees would be arriving in the county in just over two weeks and that 2,000 more would be arriving every month after that through September. In what will come as no surprise to anyone who has been paying attention for the last thirteen months, Chapman and other Loudoun County officials found the Biden team to be disingenuous, uncooperative, poorly prepared, and worse.

  1. Paedophile Convicted of Exposing ‘Her Penis’ And Using Sex Toy in Public

    A Glasgow-born paedophile has been convicted for exposing what the Scottish press described as “her manhood” in Northern England.

    How can it be HER manhood if its a man with penis? Must be his manhood.

    • Maybe it identifies a she/her. The other day that all broke my delusion when I heard about someone identifying as they/their/them. For the story to reflect their reality, would stories have to be rewritten as “Paedophile Convicted of Exposing ‘Their Penis” and Using Sex Toy in Public”. I don’t know. Aside from “you”, I don’t use pronouns referring to the person I am speaking with. So how does someone get upset when they are not addressed using they/them pronouns? I have yet to actually hear it used in a sentence. Starting to think it is a big gaslight.

  2. The most diverse armed forces will not be the strongest. The great replacement will find itself instead in the great reset. Naturlich!

    • Human nature will at some point rear it’s ugly head at some point, and when that happens, we are going to go tribal on steroids. I do hope you have armed up by now?
