St Patrick’s Day – When the Irish Invaded Canada

Who knew?

This fine fellow researched the whole tilting-at-windmills brouhaha — including all the internecine fighting that kept that Hunger Generation from succeeding.

It’s here:

When the Irish Invaded Canada: The Incredible True Story of the Civil War Veterans Who Fought for Ireland’s Freedom

The thing is, those fighting Irish didn’t actually want Canada; they simply thought they could use it as a hostage to gain freedom for Ireland and they worked hard to make it happen.

The new Irish immigrants flooded to America in order to work for something to eat. Thus, they fought on both sides of the U.S. Civil War and then kinda, sorta joined forces afterward to secure Canada. The rationale was that if they held Canada hostage then the English would have to let much-poorer Ireland go in exchange.

Several things came out of the attempt. First, the British moved the capital further in from its border with America in order to make it more secure. Secondly, the overdue idea of founding a confederation of Canada’s territories became a reality much sooner than might have been the case otherwise.

‘Tis a fascinating book if you’ve the necessary DNA component which allows one to read gobs of stories about in-fighting and betrayal. Though he mentions it, what the writer doesn’t cover sufficiently, me thinks, is the reality of America’s desire for grabbing Canada its ownself. We had taken Texas from Mexico by then and bought Alaska from Russia. Bringing in Canada had great appeal for many Americans. For Canadians, not so much. They are too peaceable; being part of the rowdy U.S. would cause a profound unease. They weren’t called Loyalists for nothing.

Back during the Irish shenanigans, some of America’s politicians bloviated about the desirability of owning the whole hog, but those who did have an eye on the North wanted someone else to do the dirty work. There was little dirty work the Irish weren’t willing to do to get the English out of the Emerald Isle.

A recent video of the author’s talk in Lawrence Massachusetts about this bit of history is below the fold.

The Verdict Against Tommy Robinson in the UKSSR

Here is Tommy’s video on what went down in Cambridgeshire:

The videos were clear, as was the evidence presented by Luton police intel that Tommy Robinson was not a risk. So what. The Alice-in-Wonderland judge found for the police anyway, and Tommy has to pay their costs. Actually, he’s paying for being an enemy of the state of Soviet Britain.

What a travesty. Dollars to doughnuts, the mendacious MSM in Britain will be all over this.

Mateusz Morawiecki and Viktor Orbán on the 1848 Revolutions

Today was the 171st anniversary of the outbreak of the Revolution of 1848 in Hungary. To commemorate the occasion — and to recognize the venerable friendship between Hungary and Poland — Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki was invited to speak in Budapest, followed by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán.

Below are videos of the speeches given by the two prime ministers.

Hungarian National Song

On your feet now, Hungary calls you!
Now is the moment, nothing stalls you,
Shall we be slaves or men set free
That is the question, answer me!
By the God of Magyars
We hereby swear,
That we the yoke of slavery
No more shall wear.

Slaves we have been to this hour,
Our forefathers who fell from power
Fell free and lived as free men will,
On land that was their own to till,
By the God of Magyars
We hereby swear,
That we the yoke of slavery
No more shall wear.

Whoever now his life begrudges
Deserves his death with thieves and drudges,
For setting his own worthless hide
Above his country’s need and pride.
By the God of Magyars
We hereby swear,
That we the yoke of slavery
No more shall wear.

The sword shines brighter than the fetters
It is the finery of our betters,
Of slaves and fetters we grow bored.
Leap to my side, ancestral sword.
By the God of Magyars
We hereby swear,
That we the yoke of slavery
No more shall wear.

Magyars, once more our name and story
Shall match our ancestors’ in glory
The centuries of shame and hurt
Can now be washed away like dirt.
By the God of Magyars
We hereby swear,
That we the yoke of slavery
No more shall wear.

And wheresoever we may perish
Grandchildren those graves shall cherish
Singing our praises in their prayers
To thank us that our names are theirs.
By the God of Magyars
We hereby swear,
That we the yoke of slavery
No more shall wear.

— Sándor Petőfi, March 15, 1848.

Tommy’s Trials and Tribulations, Day Three

Ezra Levant says the lawyers for each side have to give their summaries in the coming day(s) before the judge can rule. Tommy says all he wants is an apology for the out-of-line bully-boy (my words) behavior of the police.

But they are stiff-necked and can’t apologize to a chav. Not a chance.

Ezra has to return to Canada so he won’t be present for the remaining (two?) days of the hearing. However, once this thing is over and done, he plans to put back up the tweets he had to delete after this judge put the kibosh on his efforts.

Keep on truckin’ Tommy.

Surreal Soviet Judiciary in the U.K.

Here is Ezra Levant’s report from today’s events in Cambridgeshire’s court at Tommy’s Trial. What he experienced is disturbing in the extreme:

What chance do regular working-class Brits have when their tongues are cut out by their betters?

I pray Ezra makes it back to Canada in one piece and on time. Evidently, he scared those itty bitty policemen.

Never was I so glad to be an American.

1st Day in Court: Police on Trial for a Change

Ezra Levant flew to England to report on the charges Tommy brought against the police for their persecution of him and his family. They planned this because neither of them believed the British press would cover it. Nor did I. Is there even a conservative press of any magnitude left in Britain?

Here is Ezra’s first report:

And here is Tommy’s take on the course he is pursuing because of what the police did to him and his children while he was in a pub after a football game. You’ll notice that when he is forced to leave this restaurant, he has to walk a bit to get to a stairway which leads eventually to the street – my point being that the Cambridgeshire police had to hunt him down; he wasn’t being public about his afternoon with his kids.

Tommy had done nothing wrong, but if the government decides you’re the enemy then they send their minions after you. This is one reason for my sadness at the low point to which the U.K. has fallen. When push comes to shove, the police aren’t going to give up their cushy jobs and pensions. Instead, they’ll bloody the heads they’re ordered to smash and dismiss the disaffected as “extremist trouble-makers”.

For those of us in the U.S., this mindset and behavior are similar to the attacks on well-known people on the Right by our entitled social justice warriors. But at least we are not as isolated and alone as British cultural defenders like Tommy.

Here’s Tommy’s page, with a link to donate to the cause. The MSM is saying he has lots of money, leaving you to infer he doesn’t need your help. Or so claims the disgusting BBC.

Here’s one of the few dissenters, Gerard Batten. Do watch, it’s very brief. But the important thing is the events Batten reveals, the amazing amounts of persecution and corruption being brought to bear on one man.

A reminder: during this penitential season of Lent, please keep Tommy and his family in your prayers.

Running While Veiled

Earlier this week the French sportswear company Décathlon caused an uproar by announcing its release of a garment designed for the use of female Muslim runners. Dubbed the “running hijab”, the suit resembles a “burkini”, the full-body bathing suit worn by some Muslimas. The blowback for Décathlon was so intense that it withdrew its new product before it went on sale.

Zineb el-Rhazoui is a French writer and a former staff member of Charlie Hebdo She was born in Morocco and apostatized from Islam in her youth. At the time of the jihad attack in 2015 she was visiting Morocco, and thus escaped death.

In the following video Ms. El-Rhazoui takes part in a panel discussion about the running hijab on French TV. Her principal interlocutor is Aurélien Taché, a member of the National Assembly for President Macron’s party.

Below are excerpts from a report on the Décathlon controversy by the BBC:

Decathlon cancels sports hijab sale in France

French sportswear retailer Decathlon has scrapped plans to sell a hijab for women runners in France following a public outcry.

The firm said it had decided to suspend the product following “a wave of insults” and “unprecedented threats”.

French politicians said the “running hijab” contradicted the country’s secular values, and some lawmakers suggested a boycott of the brand.

Decathlon initially stood by the hijab, which is already for sale in Morocco.

The issues of how Muslim women dress in public has often stoked controversy in France.

“We are making the decision… to not market this product in France at this time,” Decathlon spokesman Xavier Rivoire told RTL radio on Tuesday.

He had earlier told AFP news agency that the initial decision was to “make sport accessible for all women in the world”.

The plain, lightweight headscarf, which covers the hair and not the face, was to go on sale in 49 countries from March.

[…]

The French-owned company said it had received 500 calls and emails to complain about its “running hijab”, with some of its staff in stores being insulted, and even physically threatened.

Health Minister Agnès Buzyn told RTL that although such a product is not prohibited in France, “it’s a vision of women that I don’t share. I would prefer if a French brand did not promote the headscarf”.

The spokeswoman for President Emmanuel Macron’s La République en Marche party Aurore Bergé also weighed in on the issue on Twitter, suggesting a boycott.

“My choice as a woman and citizen will be to no longer put my trust in a brand that breaks away from our values,” she said.

Replying to Ms Bergé on Twitter, Decathlon said: “Our goal is simple: to offer [women who run with an often unsuitable hijab] an adapted sport product, without judgement.”

Later, the sporting goods giant said it wanted to restore peace after the “violent” reaction “went beyond our desire to meet the needs of our customers”.

Ladyboys — What You Don’t Know

The following essay by our Bangkok correspondent H. Numan is a somewhat different reprise of a topic he posted on a couple of years ago.

A note from the author on the photo below: “Both people are reporting for the draft, but the monk has a much better chance of having to serve (shows in their faces).”

Ladyboys — what you don’t know

by H. Numan

This is a very popular topic among our extremely progressive f(r)iends: there are no genders. Gender is just a concept. You feel you are a woman? Well, that makes you a woman!

Sheer ranting nonsense, of course. There are only two genders: male and female. Mother nature works with just two genders. At least, in mammals. Plants and many non-mammalian species have a few more options. We humans aren’t plants, even if you feel you are. That makes you completely bonkers, but that’s a different topic.

In Thailand there are a lot of ladyboys, which makes me to a very limited extent a bit of an expert. So let’s look at how it works in Thailand, and by extension in most other nations.

Let’s start off with men who feel they are women: transgenders, as they are known in the West. We have a lot of them in Thailand. It was one of the first things that struck me as totally different when I arrived here. Nobody even blinks an eye.

I happen to live next door to the most prestigious mall in Thailand. The perfume and beauty departments employ lots of those kathoeys. That’s the Thai word for ladyboy. If you visit Thailand, consider visiting Alcazar Cabaret in Pattaya, which is world-famous. Almost as good is Calypso in Bangkok. I really recommend both.

All the girls you see — and they are truly stunning — are men. No women participate in these shows. Don’t worry, nothing naughty happens on stage. It’s not suitable for very young children, but if your kids are over 12? Go for it! They will love it.

I met an older ladyboy who is a famous TV star. We even had two of them working in my company. No big deal here. Some schools build special bathrooms for them. In university they wear (when allowed) girl’s uniforms. Sometimes in high schools too. In Thailand all students wear uniforms, from kindergarten up to and including university. I wonder what our progressive college brats think about that one: wearing a uniform in university. Or getting report points for behavior and properly being dressed. Not something that would go down well in Berkeley, I assume.

I’m actually surprised progressive activists never point out Thailand to show how well a society can function with transgenders. Which shows they don’t know anything about it. If there is one country were transgenders are almost fully accepted, it is Thailand. By far the majority of transgenders are men. There are a few girls who dress and behave like boys (we call them toms or tomboys), but not a lot.

But there is a very dark side to being a ladyboy. Something you almost never hear about. That is the suicide and mortality rate. More than 40% of all ladyboys commit suicide. I’d say from personal experience the suicide rate is far higher than 50%. Nearly all ladyboys I met in the past are long dead. Those who didn’t commit suicide very often died of diseases.

The Unremitting Persecution of Tommy Robinson

The despicable soviet hellhole once renowned for its creation of the Common Law is setting up the martyrdom of Tommy Robinson.

Tommy describes his latest beatdown:

Tommy’s plight is limned in the outlines where once stood a now-vanquished Justice. She has taken her scales and fled the blighted land that he chose to stand and defend, not knowing ahead of time that she would be forced to flee.

Their persecution is truly diabolical. First he is assured that his broadcast is legal, then after several hours they say he’s broken the law after all; a kangaroo court sentences him to prison. Once behind bars and thinking he can survive this one, they suddenly move him to a far more dangerous place and then put him in solitary confinement for his own “safety”. Not so solitary that he can’t be spit on or have feces shoved into his cell. But solitary enough that visits even from his lawyer become problematic.

They’re hoping to break Tommy to the point where he’ll kill himself. You can tell from his agitation in this video that he hasn’t recovered from his previous persecution. This new blindsiding is designed to weaken him further.

You can contribute to his fund here.

In this penitential season of Lent (which began on Wednesday), I would ask also that any of our readers who are so inclined to pray for Tommy and his family. And please remember in your prayers the thousands of English children and their families whose lives have been smashed and maimed by Pakistani barbarians. Those pedophiles were permitted to flourish by the very same ruling class that wants Tommy dead.

I had problems getting Tommy’s donation page to work, so I left this comment on YouTube:

I accessed your page twice in the course of putting up a post to link to your donations. When I tried a third time, I was blocked. I tried clearing cookies, but still no luck. Is this a security measure? I’ll have to find another way to get the money to your fund.

Samizdat on a $5 Bill

It seems that forbidden information is circulating on paper currency in Canada:


(Click to enlarge)

Samizdat on loonies! Who’da thunk it?

Our long-time reader and commenter leCanadien, who sent us the photo of the bill, explains how he came by it:

I just received this interesting $5 Canadian bill from a bank machine.

You could call it: ‘News Dissemination Iron Curtain Style’

It says: Senate Committee on the Trudeau Regime Letting ISIS Terrorist into Canada

On the left side it says: Google You Tube

Just think of the ramifications of this remarkable new medium for expressing dissent. In the Soviet Union, the government inhibited the production of samizdat by (among other methods) making paper difficult to obtain. But there’s no shortage of loonies in circulation — in fact, as the value of the Canadian dollar drops, more of them will be printed. As long as the government continues pretending to pay people, there will be plenty of paper for dissidents.

I suppose the government could always restrict the supply of felt-tip pens, however. In that case the dedicated producer of samizdat will have to draw his own blood and scratch his message on a (CAD) $1,000,000 bill using a toothpick or torn-off piece of fingernail…

“It’s Just Racist, You Can’t Say Such Things Anyway!”

A few days ago H. Numan wrote about the latest scandal in the Netherlands, in which a teacher was suspended because Muslim students (who make up the bulk of the student body) complained about him. And what did he do to offend them? Well, it was the same thing that Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff did: He referred to Mohammed as a pedophile. The administration suspended him without even conducting an investigation, just on the say-so of the Mohammedan students.

The following video from PowNed TV (an adjunct of the state broadcaster) features a visit by an alderman and a reporter to that culturally enriched school in Hoofddorp. The two men attempt to interview the headmaster, who adamantly refuses to cooperate. However, they are able to talk to some of the young enrichers.

A Regional Counselor for National Rally Confronts Macron About Immigration

French President Emmanuel “Toy Boy” Macron has organized a series of public appearances across France that are being billed as a “National Debate”. His willingness to show his face in public where he can be confronted by critics is reportedly in response to the unprecedented street protests by the Yellow Vest movement, which have been going on every weekend since November.

Edwige Diaz is a Regional Counselor for Rassemblement National (National Rally, formerly Front National). In the following video Ms. Diaz asks the president questions about FGM, mass Muslim immigration, and the implementation of sharia in French ghettos. I don’t have any illusions about this having any measurable effect on Mr. Macron; still, it’s bracing to hear a head of state or government having to sit through such pointed questions. To my knowledge, Theresa May and Angela Merkel have never had to endure anything similar.

Emmanuel Macron Intends to Stop Hate Crimes on the Internet

French President Emmanuel “Toy Boy” Macron has recently taken measures to crack down on hate speech on social media. The French government now requires platforms such as Twitter to deliver offenders’ IP addresses to the police and the courts so they can be found and prosecuted, and remove the offending material tout de suite.

Many thanks to Ava Lon for translating this report from French TV, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:
