A Summer of Madness

Ten years ago I walked this street; my dreams were riding tall.
Tonight I would be thankful, Lord, for any dreams at all.

— Robert Hunter, from “Mission in the Rain”

Tomorrow is the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attack in Norway. On July 22, 2011, a man named Anders Behring Breivik detonated a truck bomb in central Oslo next to government headquarters, killing eight people. While police and emergency services were dealing with the aftermath, Mr. Breivik drove to the island of Utøya, where a summer camp for Socialist Youth was being held. There he methodically shot and killed sixty-nine teenagers with a high-powered rifle. When police finally arrived at the island, he calmly surrendered.

Anders Behring Breivik was a neo-Nazi, but that fact did not emerge until several years later, when he wrote a letter to multiple media outlets and admitted that his declared affiliation with the Counterjihad movement had been a strategic misdirection, to spare his Aryan nationalist comrades from persecution. That part of his letter to the media was widely ignored, and was never publicly reported by any major outlet. To this day he is widely identified as an anti-Islam ideologue.

Before he committed his atrocities, Mr. Breivik had arranged the media distribution of his manifesto, or as he preferred to call it, “the compendium”. It was a lengthy, rambling treatise. It contained some of his own writing, but most of it consisted of extensive quotes from various English-language writers, the most prominent of which were Fjordman and Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch.

Those writers and others mentioned in the manifesto became the focus of a media frenzy beginning the following morning. Progressive pundits applied their usual pseudo-syllogism to the Utøya massacre:

1.   Breivik admired Fjordman.
2.   Breivik massacred innocent people.
3.   Therefore Fjordman was at least partially responsible for the atrocity. Q.E.D.
 

As I mentioned above, the Butcher of Utøya did not really look up to Fjordman; his admiration was a feint. So even the pseudo-syllogism was wrong. But none of that mattered; any information to the contrary was ignored by the left-wing media. Fjordman became an object of universal loathing. In Norway he was Public Enemy #1, in some ways eclipsing Breivik himself.

Up until that time Fjordman had only published his essays under a pseudonym. Beginning on the morning of July 23, the press and internet sleuths began an intensive effort to unmask him. It was only a matter of time before his real identity was uncovered, so after retaining counsel and making himself known to police, he outed himself via an interview with the tabloid VG. After that he fled the country and went into hiding.

And it’s a good thing he did: there were calls for him to be arrested and tried as Mr. Breivik’s accomplice, despite the fact that the two had never met, and Fjordman had never advocated violence in any form. But Norwegian public opinion did not bother itself with such trivial matters as facts and the truth. The slaughter on Utøya required a scapegoat, and Fjordman was chosen for the role.

He lived outside of Norway for a number of years, and only returned when the risk of arrest had diminished. However, he was unable to find work. Any prospective employer who was aware of who he was would refuse to hire him, and if he somehow found a job, even a menial one, he would be discharged as soon as his employer became aware of his identity. Now, ten years after the attack, he is living outside the country again, since he is unemployable in his homeland.

And, regardless of Mr. Breivik’s admission that his admiration for Fjordman was a ruse, Fjordman is still widely known as “Breivik’s mentor”.

I won’t go into the Breivik affair in great detail, since this is primarily a reminiscence about the effect the atrocity had on Gates of Vienna and the Counterjihad in general. To learn more, check out the archives for the period from July 22, 2011 to ca. November 2011. Or look up the relevant items in the Fjordman Files. The trial of Anders Behring Breivik sucked up a lot of our blogging oxygen in the spring of 2012; see Circus Breivik for a relevant sample.

Because Gates of Vienna was the main venue for Fjordman’s writings, and was mentioned repeatedly in the killer’s manifesto, this site was put under the media’s klieg lights beginning the day after the massacre. We were thrust into a prominence we had never seen before (or since). It was a hideous kind of fame that I would never have asked for — they say there’s no such thing as bad publicity, but my experience in the summer of 2011 makes me vehemently disagree.

In the first few weeks we received hundreds (maybe thousands) of emails. Some of them were simply requests for information, but they were mostly hate mail, sometimes in Norwegian and Swedish. Various media outlets wanted to contact Fjordman, and I dutifully passed the messages on to him, but he didn’t respond to any of them.

The number of comments at Gates of Vienna (which was still on blogspot at the time) rose into the hundreds for each post, many of them from obvious trolls and provocateurs employed by one or another state intelligence service. They soon became unmanageable, so we reluctantly closed the blog to comments for a couple of months. When we reactivated them, we made them subject to moderation, and they’ve been that way ever since. It’s frustrating and annoying for commenters to have to wait to see their contributions appear, but otherwise Dymphna and I would have been unable to cope with all the trolls and provocateurs.

By the beginning of the week following the attack, media outlets started contacting me. They somehow managed to obtain my phone number, and I received calls from newspapers in Norway and the UK. Needless to say, I declined to say anything to them.

During our fifteen minutes of lurid fame we were mentioned in The New York Times and The Washington Post, among other illustrious publications. The following report from the NYT told its readers that Anders Behring Breivik had commented on Gates of Vienna several times:

What they said was quite true. Fortunately, I had already been alerted to the fact by a European contact, who told me the pseudonym that had been used by Mr. Breivik, so I was able to track down all his comments. Some people urged me to delete them, but that’s not the way we do business here at Gates of Vienna. First of all, nothing ever disappears completely from the Internet; it can always be found in the Wayback Machine or other web archives. But more importantly, I don’t believe in hiding the truth, whether it makes me look bad or not. So I collected all of the Butcher’s comments and reposted them.

Other things published by major media outlets, particularly the British tabloids, were not as accurate. The Washington Post published my name and something about me that was completely, factually false. I sent them an email demanding that they retract and correct their error, but I knew that nothing would happen. All I could do was post about what they did and ridicule them. If I had been a famous movie actress or best-selling novelist who could afford to retain high-powered lawyers, I might have had more success. But the WaPo knows it has nothing to fear from minnows like me.

Other papers, especially the tabloids, published even more ludicrous falsehoods about Gates of Vienna — who we were associated with, where we got our funding, etc., etc. And they asserted various bogus things about other people in the Counterjihad whom I knew personally — so-and-so is funded by the Koch Brothers, or the Mossad, or whatever. Just absolute nonsense.

That summer taught me not to believe ANYTHING that I read in the media unless it is corroborated by multiple independent sources and has a breadcrumb trail that leads back to verifiable facts. Which doesn’t leave much. Reading media news reports has become a form of entertainment for me, like reading mystery novels or watching The Simpsons.

The general effect on the Counterjihad was catastrophic. A lot of sites, especially those in Europe, closed down for good. A number of Counterjihad activists I knew personally soiled their breeches and fled the field at the first whiff of grapeshot. I must admit that I became exasperated with them — I said, “You knew how serious this work was when you got into it. What did you think we were doing, playing tiddlywinks??”

However, in retrospect, I’ve had to acknowledge that they did what they had to do. Unlike me, most of them had day jobs. They stood to lose a lot if they were exposed. Some of them had families to support. I can’t judge them. They dropped out of sight, and I haven’t heard from them since.

A few people urged me to shut down Gates of Vienna. But my Scots blood comes to the fore at such times, and my natural response is defiance. I said, “F**K THAT S**T!” [emphasis in the original] and soldiered on. It was a rough time, and I didn’t get much sleep for the first couple of months. But we weathered the storm.

On the whole, however, it was a major setback from which the Counterjihad never fully recovered. The resistance to Islamization has never returned to the level of July 21, 2011. Freedom of speech has been eroded even further, and sharia is now de facto in force in much of the West.

Dymphna and I always thought that Anders Behring Breivik’s machinations had been guided and assisted by a certain three-letter agency with the assistance of Norwegian intelligence. His “compendium” was obviously in large part not his own work, and his selection of “mentors” was exquisitely chosen to do maximum damage to those who opposed Islamization, at the exact time when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was in the thick of collaborating with the Muslim Brotherhood in what eventually became known as the “Istanbul Process”. Resistance to Islam was a thorn in her side, and Anders Behring Breivik helped remove it.

I don’t think mass slaughter was part of the plan, however — the Norwegians would never have co-operated with such an operation. I think the intention was to let Mr. Breivik put together his scheme, and then roll it up at the last moment before it was executed. There would have been a prominent arrest, followed by maximum media publicity for his manifesto.

However, just before the plans matured, Wikileaks released a damaging series of documents showing some of the things [agency name redacted] had been up to in Europe, which forced them to shut down their presence in the American embassy in Oslo and withdraw Mr. Breivik’s handlers. The Butcher of Utøya was then let off his leash, and the rest is history.

Whether mass slaughter was intended or not, the plan was a great success. The Counterjihad was hobbled, the spread of sharia proceeded apace, and the Obama administration became a servant of the Muslim Brotherhood. And the Biden administration is, in effect, Obama’s third term.

Before I close these remarks, I’d like to address an appalling issue that has emerged surrounding the mass murder committed by Anders Behring Breivik. When it first came up it was very distressing, but I’ve had ten years to get used to it. Now it’s just something that I have to endure whenever the topic is broached on this site.

In those early days I was shocked by the number of people who supported Mr. Breivik and considered him a hero for what he did. And I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and Aryan supremacists, but more mainstream people who oppose mass immigration and hate socialism. Every time I post something about the Butcher of Utøya they pop up again and express their admiration for him.

I’m not going to tolerate such comments, and will delete them when they appear. You might as well spare yourself the effort. If you want, you can visit Storm Front and similar sites and make your remarks there, where you’ll get a sympathetic reception and find a lot of people who agree with you.

I’m familiar with the arguments that people make to justify their opinion: Mr. Breivik was targeting future socialists, who would otherwise have grown up and entered politics and invited even more of the Third World into Norway. But that’s a specious line of reasoning, in my opinion. The mass slaughter only hardened public opinion against those who oppose mass immigration, and made it even more difficult to restrain such immigration. Killing all those kids inspired no sympathy for the Aryan cause; it had the opposite effect.

But that’s just the practical, utilitarian argument against it.

Mr. Breivik’s strategy was a recapitulation of one of the major trends of the 20th century: the mass extermination of entire classes of people. For him it was Young Socialists. For Hitler it was Jews, gypsies, communists, homosexuals, and the feeble-minded. For Stalin it was counter-revolutionaries, “wreckers”, the bourgeoisie, kulaks, and Ukrainians. For Pol Pot it was the intellectuals. For the Hutus it was the Tutsis. For Muslims it was Jews, Christians, Hindus, and other infidels.

What all the architects of those atrocities have in common is that they considered it morally justifiable, and even laudable, to engage in the mass slaughter of people based on their membership in a particular class — a race, a social class, an occupation, a nationality, etc. Individuals meant nothing. Those who engineered the massacres were not required to determine whether their victims were guilty of any crimes, or even subscribed to a particular ideology. They were members of a class, and for that reason they deserved to die. Men, women, children, invalids, the elderly and enfeebled — all had to go.

That is a pernicious mindset, and I’ll have none of it. It was the bane of the 20th century, and we’ve no business extending it into the 21st.

I know the counter-arguments — we’re in a war, and war sometimes requires us to do horrible things, etc., etc. If we want to win, we have to grit our teeth and do what is necessary.

Well, if that’s what it takes to win, then I don’t want to win. I’ll go down to defeat rather than jump into that particular boxcar to hell.

The Freedom That Nobody Can Take Away From Us

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this op-ed from Politically Incorrect:

The freedom that nobody can take away from us

by Wolfgang Hübner

These days there are often complaints that presumptuous politicians in Germany have deprived us of elementary freedoms under the pretext of the coronavirus threat. In view of the resolutions passed by large majorities in the Bundestag to suspend and restrict fundamental rights guaranteed in the Basic Law, this lawsuit is fully justified.

In a parliamentary democracy, it is entirely possible for a majority to make decisions that have undemocratic consequences. If the Federal Constitutional Court in its current composition is determined more by party political interests than by constitutional principles, the parliamentary majority can no longer be effectively corrected. In this situation, are the citizens helplessly exposed to their deprivation of liberty?

That is only the case if the citizens submit to this deprivation of liberty. Nobody can force them to do so, because neither the state nor a parliamentary majority has power over people’s internal freedom. Even totalitarian dictatorships have so far failed because of this inner freedom of individuals. Inner freedom is the indispensable prerequisite for regaining outer freedom. That is why the enemies of freedom do everything in their power to break people internally, to make those who resist submissive by any means.

Currently, for example, with blackmail: “You will only get your freedom rights back if you are vaccinated against the virus.” Those who submit to this blackmail give up not only their physical self-determination, but also their inner freedom. From now on they can be blackmailed in the long term. Because soon it will be said: “You can only keep your freedom rights if you get vaccinated again against the virus mutation XYZ.”

The history of mankind gives clear indications that renouncing internal freedom is the prerequisite for external bondage. And this renunciation has never led to an end to external bondage. If the majority of people, for whatever motives and for however long, decide against internal freedom, then the maintenance and defense of internal freedom by a minority is all the more important. Because only internal freedom, which no one can take away from us, is the indestructible root of external freedom.

The Terror on Utøya and the Nuances of Insanity

Next Thursday will mark the tenth anniversary of the massacre of 77 people in Norway by Anders Behring Breivik, the Butcher of Utøya. The events of that day turned my life upside down for a few months, but what happened to me is trivial compared to what Fjordman went through.

There were far too many posts on those events for me to link to just one. If you want a refresher course, dig into the archives beginning on July 22, 2011 and work your way forward. It began with a live blog that included Fjordman himself.

I expect that we’ll be hearing from Fjordman in due course, and I’ll write a brief reminiscence of my own. But today I’ll start with excerpts from a post by Ronie Berggren, a Swedish blogger and podcaster. Many thanks to our Swedish correspondent LN for the translation:

The terror on Utøya and the nuances of insanity

July 4, 2021

Ronie Berggren reviews the book Witness to madness [Vitne til vanvidd] by Peder Jensen, about the witch hunt against Islam critics and critics of mass immigration that prevailed after the terrorist attack on the Norwegian island of Utøya on July 22, 2011, for which Jensen himself was pilloried as perpetrator Anders Behring Breivik’s prophet.

It has been ten years since Anders Behring Breivik detonated a bomb in Oslo’s government quarters and then shot 69 young people dead in a Social Democratic camp on the island of Utøya. It happened on July 22, 2011. An insane world was on view, for which Breivik was sentenced to 21 years in prison.

[…]

I have not read everything that his critics have written. I have read parts of Øyvind Strømmen’s book, whose Swedish translation I bought when it came out. I have not read Simen Sætre’s book about Jensen / Fjordman, but I have seen a lecture by him on YouTube, a 20-minute sleeping pill.

My own impression is that these experts are less knowledgeable than their Swedish counterparts, and especially Mattias Gardell (whom I read most of, and whose research methods I have great respect for even if I do not share his political views, which I consider obscure his conclusions). Gardell’s strength is that he is usually well-read about the subjects he describes, although he often simplifies and paints with far too broad a brushstroke, and creates his own narratives instead of examining the truth objectively. But despite that, he is still knowledgeable, or at least well-read, which Simen Sætre does not seem to be at all.

I therefore judge, based on the qualifications I actually have, that Peder Jensen is much more credible than his critics. Which brings me to the last part of my conclusions.

For the past ten years Peder Jensen has had to live as an outcast from his own country. Social stigma and unemployment are the price he has to pay for living by a principle that should be respected: the search for the truth and the courage to stand up for the truth he believes he has discovered. In a healthy nation, such people are utilized, made into political leaders if they are practical, or professors if they are more theoretically minded. This has not happened in Jensen’s case. Instead, the opposite has happened.

Four Years in Juvie For Burning a Woman to Death

Back in February I posted about a gang of culture-enrichers in the Swedish city of Nässjö who set fire to a house with an elderly woman inside, burning her to death.

The Swedish “justice” system has now thrown the book at those rascally youths: the ringleader has been sentenced to four years in juvenile detention, and his accomplices were given similar sentences. Ha! That’ll teach those young whippersnappers a lesson!

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from Nyheter Idag:

17-year-old sentenced to 4 years in juvenile custody after arson

ANNEBERG: On Friday a 17-year-old boy was sentenced for setting a villa on fire in Anneberg in Nässjö municipality and killing a woman who lived there. SVT reports that he has been sentenced to four years in juvenile custody for murder and arson.

The crime occurred on February 1 of this year. The 17-year-old admitted that he set the fire which caused the total destruction of the house and the incineration of the woman inside, but maintains that he didn’t think the woman was still inside and that he had no intention of killing her.

The Eksjö District Court convicted him of murder and arson as well as aggravated theft, vandalism, and harassment, and the punishment is four years in juvenile detention. He will also pay 180,000 kronor in damages to the woman’s relatives.

“That is a reasonable punishment, which corresponds to life in prison for an adult,” says Prosecutor Helene Thomasson to SVT.

Before the fire started the 17-year-old and his two companions harassed the 68-year-old woman. They followed her to her home and shouted curse words at her and spat at her, among other things. The woman called the police, who came, but by then the trio had left.

The two accomplices have been sentenced to juvenile detention and youth service for harassment and also for violation of the law for protection from accidents, since they did not sound the alarm for the fire.

Just Say It!

Giuseppe Cruciani is an Italian television presenter who is known for being provocative and confrontational. The following video is an excerpt from a longer TV program, in which Mr. Cruciani rails against the reluctance of the progressives to identify “honor” violence as an Islamic phenomenon. He specifically refers to the recent case of Saman Abbas, who was allegedly killed by her family for refusing to marry her cousin.

Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said

Last week I posted a translated German article about less affluent areas of the Swedish city of Gothenburg that are now ruled by immigrant gangs. A policeman named Ulf Boström explained the way the criminal gangs use intimidation and extortion to run a lucrative protection racket.

Below are three brief videos and an article from SVT (Swedish public television) about the situation in Gothenburg that include interviews with Ulf Boström. Many thanks to Gary Fouse for the translations, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for subtitling the videos.

Policeman in tears after question on Gangs’ hidden victims: “Completely without a chance”

June 26, 2021

Swedish entrepreneurs have lost their families, their work, or have been forced to move out of the country in fear of being killed, SVT’s review shows.

The reason: They are systematically extorted by criminal networks. Now Gothenburg police officer Ulf Boström sounds the alarm that the problem is gigantic and that the police cannot protect the victims.

“Either you pay or you resist, and your life is completely ruined,” he says.

Start the clip to see the emotional interview with police officer Ulf Boström-who explains who is affected, and the powerlessness he feels in the face of the problem.

Integration policeman Ulf Boström has worked in northeast Gothenburg for 16 years. His telephone rings all the time. Worried mothers of gang members, imams, and people who don’t understand a document they receive from an official.

Boström: Therefore, the police cannot protect victims

He meets many of the people who live under constant threat of death, those who pay the gangs and family-based criminal networks, and those who refuse. He believes that police cannot protect those who report, even if they receive protected living.

“It is only temporary, and few who get protection in this way have a full life. Since for so long we have let this activity spread over all of Sweden, the gangs are in all the bigger cities. They have eyes and ears everywhere.”

SVT News-West for several years has met with about ten people around Sweden who refuse to pay. The victims are primarily people with a foreign background. The criminals see that they are easier to approach, according to Boström.

“If you don’t have a big family that can protect you, you are completely without a chance,” he says.

Tries to make politicians understand

He has long fought to make others understand that organized crime is so much more than attention-getting shootings. Ulf Boström is engaged in the local Democrat party, and in 2019 made news when he reported 300 Swedish ISIS members for aiding and abetting murder.

Gangs Rule in Karlsfeld

I realize that news stories like this one all start to seem the same, once you’ve read a few dozen of them. I could create a template for the reports, with certain variables to be filled in — the country, the place names, the names of the police officers and the prosecutors, and maybe the ethnic groups involved — Somalis, Albanians, Chechens, Nigerians, etc. Otherwise, it’s the same old story: alien ethnic gangs terrorize the native populace, and the police and civil authorities are helpless to do anything to stop it.

And the worst part is that voters keep voting for the same old political parties that import the feral culture-enrichers. I don’t know whether they use Dominion voting machines in Europe, but that’s not enough to account for the margin of victory in most countries. People in Germany are being raped, assaulted, robbed, brutalized, and killed by violent migrant gangs, but it doesn’t induce a large enough number of them to vote for the evil WAYCIST Nazis of the AfD. Marine Le Pen may be able to beat Emmanuel Macron in the next presidential election, but if she does, it will be by a slim margin. And in Britain there isn’t even a significant choice — on immigration and Islam the “Conservatives” are virtually indistinguishable from Labour. You can vote for Tweedledum or Tweedledee, with the only difference being that one of the two has more bizarre hair.

Of the major Western European countries, Italy offers the greatest hope of actually voting in a change. Keep an eye on Matteo Salvini (Lega) and Giorgia Meloni (Fratelli d’Italia) in the coming months.

And Central Europe — the former Communist bloc — is still marching to a different drummer than in the West.

As for the USA, we’re about as screwed as screwed can be. But that’s too large a topic to treat in this brief introduction.

Stabbing, rape, turf war: Brutal youth gangs terrorize the community — residents live in massive fear

by Christiane Breitenberger

Many people in Karlsfeld are terrified. The reason for this is a seriously criminal youth gang. Stabbing and sexual offenses are no longer uncommon.

Karlsfeld — Thomas Kirner has been a police officer for 30 years, he has been working as a youth officer at the Dachau police station since 2016, but what he has noticed for some time in Karlsfeld,…. “I’ve never seen anything like this here.” A seriously criminal youth gang is active in Karlsfeld. There is a climate of fear. The situation is so bad that there are young people who want to move away from their homeland. One of them told his parents that he no longer wants to live, “he is so afraid of this group,” explains Kirner. “Karlsfeld is now called ‘Little Chicago’ in the district.”

Rape and turf wars in Karlsfeld: Gang leaders meanwhile in custody

Two gang leaders — both currently in prison — have gathered a group behind themselves: The up to 30 followers, between the ages of 13 and 17, that blindly follow them, doing what they are told. “Many are only members because they are afraid of becoming victims themselves and being extorted,” explains Thomas Kirner. He emphasizes: “The fun is now over when it comes to criminal offenses; we haven’t just talked about thefts and insults here for a long time.” It is about serious bodily harm, sexual offenses, real fights, groups against groups. It’s about territory, turf wars, such as recently in Puchheim, when a 16-year-old was critically injured in a knife fight. A 15-year-old suspect was arrested and the criminal investigation department is investigating the case.

A Failure of Integration?

Horst Seehofer is the former Minister-President of Bavaria who now acts as Minister of the Interior in the CDU/CSU government of Angela Merkel. I’ve been watching Mr. Seehofer’s political career with interest for more than ten years, and have concluded that he is a slimy opportunist of the first stripe.

Mr. Seehofer took a look at the recent knife jihad in Würzburg that left three people dead, and concluded that the acts of the killer represented an “integration deficit” — that is, the German people are somehow responsible for the Islamic misogyny of the Somali mujahid.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this op-ed from Politically Incorrect:

Würzburg massacre due to “integration deficits”?

by Wolfgang Hübner

It was to be expected that the left-green dominated media would shy away from the knife perpetrator and woman-slaughterer from Würzburg, like the devil from holy water. This goes so far (at stern.de) that the murderer had allegedly traumatic experiences with right-wing extremists in East Germany.

There is really no depression that is deep enough in this journalistic scene. But are politicians like Interior Minister Horst Seehofer really far from taking the terrible events in Würzburg as an opportunity to ponder publicly about “integration deficits”?

Seehofer is particularly surprised that the perpetrator, a rejected but not deported asylum seeker from Somalia, has lived in a homeless shelter for years. But what is it that amazes the minister? He and Chancellor Merkel are responsible for opening the borders to hundreds of thousands of young, culturally alien men such as Somalis in 2015 and then leaving them to their fate. Wasn’t the possible consequence of this decision, namely the “failed integration” that Seehofer now complains about, foreseeable back then? Was successful integration the only conceivable thing?

This is not even primarily about all the later bloody acts in Würzburg, Freiburg and elsewhere. Even the Somali did not become a murderer straightaway. It took years for him to reach for the knife and to work off his obvious misogyny in such a gruesome way. When they opened the border, did Merkel and Seehofer never think about the consequences of sexual and cultural frustration in not a few young men from Islamic regions marked by violence and chaos? However, it is the duty of political decision-makers in the highest state ranks associated with the sworn mandate to observe such aspects in order to protect their own people.

It is therefore a shameful diversionary maneuver on the part of Seehofer to somehow fix the responsibility for what is happening in Würzburg locally. The stupid reaction of the mayor of Würzburg , who could not think of anything better than to warn in all seriousness against a general suspicion against refugees constructed by himself, suggests a cumulative municipal incompetence. However, the basic problem was not created in Würzburg, but in Berlin. And names are associated with Berlin that have to be mentioned in the recent massacre. Seehofer is just one of those names.

Coronafascism is Here


Harald Laatsch is a politician for the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany).

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from PolitikStube:

Harald Laatsch: How to build a totalitarian state

We have been held captive for more than a year by a plan that has never had the effects it was thought to have had.

All relevant groups are in the same boat. Political parties, media, churches, trade unions, associations and authorities. They all work in perfect coordination. If you look at the definition of fascism, you’ll feel embarrassed.

There is neither an overuse nor an overload of the health system, but a conspicuously high rate of vaccination damage and death. Coordinated on how things are going, the media report completely uncritically, almost propagandistically positive about the measures.

In the meantime, other states have long since proven that the threatened scenario with millions of deaths does not exist. The Swedes are leading the way, and they have good reason to do so.

We have been led to believe such a dramatic scenario before, but at that time nobody in Germany went with it: the swine flu. The initiator, same as this time: Drosten [the virologist Christian Drosten].

Back then, the Swedes were more gullible and let themselves be herded like sheep. The result? A high incidence of adverse effects from the vaccine that caused permanent trauma. The Swedes have learned their lesson.

But let’s come back to the establishment of a totalitarian state or, to make it clearer, the continuous building of a dictatorship. While even old people are beaten down with the most brutal police violence when there is even the slightest suspicion of protest and commitment to freedom and rights, criminals are unhindered when dealing drugs in public or forcing themselves as commuters onto public transport. How does that fit together?

Not at all! Nor does it have to, because the media arm of the dictatorship is in the boat. A particular pioneer of this practice is the media arm of left-wing extremism, the Tagesspiegel. Their attacks on the free world range up to an unbelievable derailment against #Lockdowneverything.

Free opinions must be suppressed by all means. People who express them must be turned into persona non grata; that seems to be the slogan and mission. Optionally, fighters for freedom are called right-wing radicals, Covidiots or even anti-Semites. The connection no longer needs to be established, it is simply asserted in unison.

Anyone who thought we would have to file a lawsuit was thwarted by an amended infection protection ordinance, because the lawsuits had quite considerable success. So the citizen has only the constitutional complaint, the Federal Constitutional Court — but wait, this hope is in vain.

Because the new president of the court, which was formerly supposed to protect our constitution, which often succeeded after a fashion, with Solomonian instead of constitutional-oriented judgments, is the CDU MP Harbath. With him the ultimate authority of the sovereign was undermined. He is a vicarious agent of the FDJ [Free German Youth] specialist [Merkel] in agitation and propaganda and therefore a coffin nail of the FDGO [Constitution].

From Pinkwashing to Blackout

Ten years or so ago, when I was covering the cultural enrichment news from Sweden, I learned about a strange practice that Swedish TV news engaged in to protect the privacy of suspects in incidents of violent crime: not only did they pixelate out the faces of the alleged perps, but they lightened the skin tone, to make it seem like the thugs were ordinary Swedes. And this was done when police were actually seeking help from witnesses in finding the suspects. It made no sense whatsoever; it was completely insane. But that’s Sweden for you.

The practice was known as “pinkwashing”, although since then the same word seems to have taken on a different meaning. Nowadays it refers to the practices of corporations and other large organizations that pander to LGBTQÖѾ people while not really doing anything substantive. I don’t know what Sweden’s beige-pixelation technique is called now.

Swedish media seem to have abandoned the practice, anyway, and moved on to a complete blackout on any information about the ethnicity of the perpetrators of violent crimes.

How TV4 stopped the reporting on sex offenders’ ethnicity

Stockholm: Now Nyheter Idag can reveal that TV4 stopped a comprehensive report about sex crimes during the We Are Sthlm Festival 2016. Email correspondence between police and a TV4 reporter shows that young men with a foreign background were behind sex harassment against young girls. The TV4 boss who stopped the reportage refused to comment on the decision. “I’m not interested,” he said to Nyheter Idag and closed himself off in the basement of his residence.

In January 2016, Nyheter Idag revealed that the Dagens Nyheter newspaper covered up sexual abuse against young girls at the “We Are Sthlm” Festival, which took place six months earlier, in 2015. DN received verified, first-hand information that young girls in the audience were subjected to sex attacks, but chose not to publish the information.

The disclosure by Nyheter Idag on the cover-up of sex abuse was sensitive and prompted extensive debate, not the least of which was that some of the girls were as young as 12. DN’s decision not to report the sex abuse could be a consequence of the fact that many of the perpetrators were unaccompanied Afghans. That explanation was received by Nyheter Idag from the informant who first was in contact with DN.

In August 2016, the national economist Tino Sanandaji published an internal police report on his blog with information about the perpetrators’ background. Police authorities said that a “large problem group” was a youth gang of about 50 persons.

“These are so-called refugee youths, mostly from Afghanistan. Many of the gang were arrested for sexual molestation,” police authorities wrote.

TV4 reporter maps the ethnicity of the suspected sex offenders

After Sanandaji published the police report, TV4 began a survey of the 2016 festival, in which young girls continued to be subjected to the same type of sex abuse. The TV4 reporter Helena Gissén asked for information from police on the suspected perpetrators’ ethnicity. At first, it was slow. In an email dated 1 September 2016, she requested a reconsideration of a decision in which police blacked out information.

“We have received partially-blacked out copies of all crime reports connected to the 2016 We Are Sthlm Festival. We request a reconsideration of the decision to black out information regarding those suspected of sexual molestation in connection with the festival,” wrote Gissén to Carl-Gustav Wrangel of the police authorities.

“We particularly wish to get information as to interpreter and language needs, citizenship, and nation of birth,” continued Gissén.

In an email to police authorities on 23 September of the same year, Gissén also inquired about the birthdates of the suspects. She further requested, from the police investigation into the We Are Sthlm Festival the previous year, the same document that Tino Sanandaji published on his blog.

When Nyheter Idag spoke with the now-retired policeman Carl-Gustav Wrangel, he said that Gissén, “was quite anxious,” to get access to the ethnicity of the suspected perpetrators. He was then operating under confidentiality rules in the police and remembered the correspondence.

“That leaves a little bit in the air since people want to know if it was a foreigner or migrant, or if it was an asylum-seeker who was the perpetrator. Or if it was an ordinary Swede. That is what everyone wants to know. There I was quite clear in saying that I do not give out that type of information.”

Würzburg Was a Sedative, Not a Wake-Up Call

As you all know by now, last Friday a Somali “youth” went on a stabbing rampage in the city of Würzburg in Bavaria, killing three people and wounding a half-dozen others before police stopped him by shooting him in the leg.

It was encouraging to read that local citizens, instead of cowering behind Merkel Legos, chased after the murderous culture-enricher before police arrived on the scene. And the incident caused widespread public outrage — could it be that Germany’s Willkommenskultur (welcoming culture) is finally giving way to hard-headed realism about the catastrophic effects of mass third-world immigration?

The short answer to that question is: No.

Hellequin GB has translated a selection of articles from various sources that illustrate the fact that nothing has changed after Würzburg, at least not at the level of the political leadership.

First, from PolitikStube:

Incomprehensible! Federal states stop new deportation law: Over 291,000 asylum seekers who are obliged to leave the country

The number of asylum seekers who are obliged to leave the country is increasing from year to year; no wonder anyone who has somehow made it to Germany and used the magic word “asylum” as a door opener will no longer want to voluntarily leave the paradise with the high social benefits.

291,462 asylum seekers who are legally obliged to leave Germany are staying in Germany and have made themselves comfortable in the land of milk and honey. Their place at the honey pot is secured; after all, there is no political will for rigorous deportations. There is indifference; neither politics nor the authorities seem to care about the grievances and the waste of taxpayers’ money.

Bild-Zeitung:

291,462 rejected asylum seekers are currently “legally obliged to leave the country”. The Federal Ministry of the Interior announced this in response to BILD’s request. But only a fraction actually return to their home country.

From January to May 2021, only 4,671 migrants were deported. Most of the deportations were carried out by NRW [North Rhine-Westphalia] (1163), followed by Bavaria (762), Berlin (413) and Baden-Württemberg (395). The federal states do not have enough deportation detention places, and fail because of missing papers. The federal police could give them more support.

But on Friday — the day of the Würzburg Islamist attack — the federal states prevented just that. By an overwhelming majority, they stopped a law in draft, the Federal Council that would have allowed the federal police to deport, if they were to apprehend someone who was obliged to leave, if they were caught in their area of jurisdiction (e.g. in the train station).

The Somali mujahid is said to have had a history of mental problems, so after Würzburg the focus will be on boosting the country’s psychiatric industry.

The second report is also from PolitikStube:

Knife attack in Würzburg: detectives demand more funds for the mentally ill

In almost every knife attack, the perpetrator’s psychological problems are placed in the foreground; at the same time “experts”, politicians or socially romantic followers come out of their holes to discuss the background of the mentally ill violent perpetrators and to relativize the crime as much as possible. The chairman of the Bund deutscher Kriminalbeamter (BdK) also speaks out and calls for more funds for the treatment of the mentally ill. Due to the shortage of skilled workers, the sick could not be adequately treated.

Epoch Times:

The chairman of the Bund deutscher Kriminalbeamter (BdK), Sebastian Fiedler, calls for better equipment in the psychiatric field. “As with the attack in Hanau or the crime at Frankfurt Airport, we are apparently dealing with a mentally ill perpetrator in the Würzburg case,” he told the newspapers of the Funke media group (Monday editions). “We have significant problems with mentally ill people at many levels.”

At the same time, there has long been a dramatic shortage of skilled workers in psychiatry, which prevents the sick from receiving adequate treatment.

“A particular problem are people who become mentally ill as a result of traumatic war experiences.” That is “not an original issue of the security authorities, but of the health sector,” said Fiedler. “The shortage of skilled workers in psychiatry is also an enormous safety problem. Jens Spahn has long been obliged to present a plan for how he will get the problem under control.”

Instead of wearing a black armband in mourning for the victims of the attack in Würzburg, German footballers are celebrating deviants and will kneel to honor people with high levels of melanin skin-pigment.

Women Under the Islamic State

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from EW Magazine. The translator includes this introductory note:

This article was written by a Turkish woman who has earned the wrath of her community by criticizing Islam. Here she writes about the way the Netherlands is repatriating ISIS women from the Middle East while Yazidi and Kurdish women suffer. Her words are probably causing another stir in the Turkish community.

The translated article:

Lale Gül: The Netherlands Gives Yazidi women a kick

Women who left to the ISIS Caliphate are welcomed back to the Netherlands together with their children. While the victims of the ISIS atrocities, such as the Yazidis and Kurds, look on with sorrowful eyes. Imagine that, argues writer Lale Gül, in an article for EW Podium.

Just imagine: You are not Dutch, but a Yazidi woman, a member of a small religious minority in the Sinjar region in NW Iraq. Five years ago, your habitat was overrun by the Islamic State; your community was enslaved, gagged, subjugated, and humiliated. Fathers, brothers and sons were beheaded in cold blood before your eyes and those of other women. Their bodies rot away in 73 mass graves in the area. Daughters, sisters, and mothers, such as yourself are either raped, or turned into slaves, or both.

Raped women bear children begotten by ISIS terrorists

As a result, you, the raped women together, after years-long mistreatment, bear children begotten by the ISIS terrorists that you have not since seen. Pretty gruesome, isn’t it?

The trauma is not yet over: Then you have to leave your children behind en masse in a camp that you will never visit again because, at the same time, they are also children of the enemy whom the clergy of your community will not accept. If you don’t leave them behind in one or another miserable orphanage, you are no, longer welcome. It is believed in your village that a child by birth automatically has the religion of the father and who is in this case a (rather extreme) Muslim: That is not allowed. After leaving the child, see how your conscience is soothed.

Moreover, half of the women from your community can no longer be found.

Or imagine that you are not a Yazidi woman, but a Kurd. One with a deceased brother, father or son, murdered by an ISIS terrorist.

According to Yazidi women, ISIS women are worse than their men

Now imagine that the women from the Netherlands who, as spouses of this beastly system, eagerly and willingly facilitated these inhumane conditions, were themselves worse than the male terrorists, to which many Yazidi women have testified to Dutch journalists. Imagine that you read and hear that these same women want to return to Europe, now that they have lost the war and are calling on the Netherlands to at least give their children a future.

Sweden Throws the Book at an ISIS Terrorist

A “Swedish” Muslima who went to Syria to join the Islamic State had her children taken away when she returned to Sweden. When she threatened to kill a health care worker, the Swedish justice system threw the book at her — it made her talk to a shrink.

If that fails, of course, there’s always the Comfy Chair.

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from the Swedish news site Samtiden, which is published by Sverigedemokraterna (the Sweden Democrats):

ISIS Terrorist Sentenced for Death Threat Against Health Care Worker

When the returning ISIS terrorist had her children forcibly taken into child protective custody, she threatened a health care worker with death. Now the woman has been sentenced to court-mandated psychiatric care.

The woman, who returned from ISIS in Syria and threatened a healthcare worker with death in April, has been sentenced to the psychiatric section of the Södra Älvsborg Hospital. The health care worker allegedly would have seen her family killed.

The ISIS terrorist said that she would “find them” and slit the throat of the health care worker’s father.

“It was very uncomfortable. I became afraid. I took it most seriously. It felt real,” the health care worker told the hearing, which GT news reported.

District court sentences to psychiatric care

The ISIS terrorist was charged with a threat against a healthcare worker. The District Court of Borås found the woman guilty and sentenced her to court-mandated psychiatric care.

“From the court-mandated psychiatric investigation that the ISIS terrorist subsequently went through, it has now emerged that she committed the act she was charged for under the influence of a serious psychiatric disorder…” the court writes in its ruling.

The woman traveled from Sweden to Syria in 2014 to join the ISIS terror organization. She traveled together with her husband and their children.

According to information from the National Operative Section (NOA) of the police, the woman was engaged in recruiting other women into Islamist terror activity.

Dutch Culture-Enrichers Are Out of Control

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from De Dagelijkse Standaard:

Justice confirms: Safe country asylum-seekers can hardly be controlled after their asocial and criminal outbursts

by Wout Willemsen
June 15, 2021

The Justice and Security Inspectorate has come out with a new report following an investigation into trouble-making asylum-seekers. And what is the result? Asocial and criminal asylum-seekers can hardly be reformed unless real action can be taken.

Moroccans, Algerians, Libyans, and Tunisians, better known as asylum-seekers from “safe countries”, are the biggest cause of the problem. In the normal asylum centers, they continue to show asocial and criminal behavior, probably also due to the fact that “boas” [investigating officers] and other security personnel are hardly allowed to intervene, according to Het Parool.

There is, however, a special center for adult asylum-seekers in Hoogeveen. Employees there have the authority to impose sanctions and physically intervene. The result? Significantly less trouble

The Inspectorate thus confirms what the rest of the Netherlands has long known: Doing nothing doesn’t help while doing something does. State Secretary Ankie Broekers-Knol, herself the queen of doing nothing, is now getting advice from the Inspectorate to give COA [Centraal Orgaan opvang asielzoekers, Central Agency for the Reception of Asylum Seekers] workers more authority and to train them so that they really can and are allowed to intervene.

That should be a big improvement, but naturally, it is still a plaster on a festering wound. The Dutch government still can’t send this type of asylum-seeker back, purely because the country of origin doesn’t cooperate and actually tells the Netherlands, “Last touched!”.

Thus, the situation remains just as pitiful, but in any case, slowly but surely, the problem is becoming known to the government itself. Now one just awaits a cabinet that will actually turn the harsh campaign rhetoric of the VVD [Volkspartij voor Vrijheid en Democratie, People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy] into policy in which asylum-seekers from safe countries can actually go and enjoy the summer sun in their own, safe country…
