Italian Mayor Decommissions the EU Flag

Marco Schiesaro is the mayor of Cadoneghe in northern Italy, in the region of Veneto and province of Padua. In the following video you’ll see him bind up the EU flag to take it out of service at the town hall, in protest against the abandonment of Italy by Brussels during the coronavirus crisis.

It’s important to note that Mr. Schiesaro’s protest comes from the Left. He cites his political heroes in his little talk, and they range from the statist Left to the far Left (e.g. Altiero Spinelli, a Trotskyite communist and the author of the Ventotene Manifesto).

The mayor wants a united Europe, but not one that’s dominated by Germany. I say: Good luck with that! If Italy were the most powerful nation in Europe, the EU would be dominated by Italy.

Well, the emperor’s naked

by Francesca Rivafinoli
March 31, 2020

For the precise news consumer who hard-hacks other articles out of a flood of current infection rates, curfews, and opposition dictatorships, can find such things in the small print today:

  • The migrants who wanted to enter the EU are turning back from the Turkish-Greek border.
  • The Polish nurses illegally working abroad are going home.
  • The European Parliament is limiting its functions to those that are essential.

Some quite serious axioms are failing here, let’s face it.

Here, for example, the European Parliament, which up until now has presented the world every month with sweeping resolutions on cardinal issues such as ‘the situation of LGBTQ people in Uganda’, and threatened to frown on anyone who does not fully comply (even in faraway Oceania) or meet the expectations of the LIBE Committee [European Parliament Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs] in Brussels. We look now at the agendas that focus on “fundamental” issues curtailed because of COVID-19, and what we see is that all human rights issues have been deleted without a second thought.

From a logical point of view, issues such as ‘equality for women in Vanuatu’ or even ‘intersectional disadvantages for the mesquite LGBTQ community in the Falkland Islands’ are now no longer ‘fundamental’ problems for the European Union. We understand that, too.

Then there is the home of Martin Schulz and Manfred Weber, the superlative Germany, who teach us about European values at all times, and it turns out that they have about 270,000 Polish nurses, 90% of their total guest workers doing their job totally illegally, as is fully known by the authorities. And now, as these women go home to their families, the voice of panic can be heard on the German public television channel about those evil Poles, who left hundreds of thousands of poor elderly Germans without provision. Because these Poles are “not in solidarity”, unlike us Germans, who are full of European values, in solidarity, and who allow them to for care and push our helpless elders illegally, without any registration, and for all this, we pay as little as we can to suck them away from the health systems of countries to the east.

Which arrogance has already broken the barrier with German commentators, who even raise the unorthodox question of whether they should instead stand on their own, rely on domestic, national resources, rather than on the import of shoddy cheap labor. “Guten Morgen”, one could say.

And as if that was not enough of a slap in the face, the pandemic landed another punch on European progressivism where it hurts the most: the mantra that migrants cannot be kept outside the borders of the EU, and masses would lose their lives in the Mediterranean Sea if there were no NGO ships cruising there. For wonders, a single closed border and a sufficient number of Greek border police smoothly dissuaded migrants who desired to land in Europe. And at sea, rescue is in order, although the Ocean Viking hangs around in the Marseilles harbor — the rest of the ships are not abandoning the people, but they are all being taken back to the Libyan coast.

People’s Home Care

Folkhemmet, “The People’s Home”, was the model touted by the Social Democrats at the founding of the modern Swedish welfare state. Now it looks like it will morph into People’s Home Care for those dying of the ChiCom flu.

Many thanks to LN for translating this article from Samhällsnytt:

Care places are expected to run out next week — patients will be cared for at home

April 1, 2020

According to previously unknown documents from Region Stockholm, which is said to be a guiding prognosis for primary care, the care facilities at Stockholm Hospitals will run out next week. To solve the situation, doctors must be quickly trained via the Internet to treat coronavirus patients at home. The region also makes it clear that “lowered quality may need to be accepted”.

According to statistics, Sweden has 4,527 infected so far, of whom 199 have died. But the statistics are flawed, because Sweden does not test members of the public who experience symptoms of the coronavirus infection. Furthermore, Samhällsnytt also reported that the statistics of the Public Health Authority lag behind by several days.

It is now clear from internal documents from the Stockholm region dated March 27 that the health centers are preparing to take over responsibility for coronavirus-infected patients in the region. This is because the intensive care and outpatient sites at the hospitals are projected to run out on April 7, as reported by Aftonbladet.

Region: “Decreased quality may need to be accepted”

Furthermore, the forecast shows that the maximum number in need of healthcare is expected to drop on April 29. But that is not where the bad news ends — you should also prepare for deteriorating quality, the documents say:

“Decreased quality may need to be accepted, can no longer strive for maintained quality”

Dying are left to wait at home

The region is also preparing for a situation in the future when fewer staff will handle more and more patients. In One solution to the situation says that coronavirus patients should be cared for at home.

Physicians from primary care will also be “quickly trained” across the web in so-called end-of-life care in order to deal with patients in their final hours and thus relieve the hospitals.

Sir Robert Peel Must be Rolling in His Grave

Our English correspondent Seneca III weighs in on the current UK police state under the ChiCom virus regime.

“If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”

Sir Robert Peel Must be Rolling in His Grave

by Seneca III

Things have come to a sorry pass in this once green and pleasant land. As I look around subsumed by dismay and morbid fascination, I have been forced to come to some appalling conclusions:

  • A society in which you are investigated for your thinking when you openly question whether men can “be” women is a Sick Society.
  • A society in which you are arrested for detaining a man who molests your daughter in public is a Dhimmi State.
  • A society in which tens of thousands of organised sexual crimes against children go knowingly unpunished to avoid the terrible charge of racism is a Conquered State.
  • A society in which it is bigoted to object to having ageing men dressed as women “twerk” to pre-school children in a public library is a Deviant Society.
  • A society in which basic observations of reality are forbidden by the use of magic words — “racism” “-phobia” — is a Silenced State.
  • A society in which you can be ruined for speaking the truth out loud is a Police State.
  • A society in which the shameful and disgusting are celebrated as virtues is a Failed State.
  • A society which has replaced the national home with the borderless market of everywhere is a Globalist State.
  • A society in which an invented grievance is a good career move is a Doomed State.
  • A society that penalises the talented and the bright in the name of “diversity” is a Suicidal State.

It is no surprise then that UK cops have been knuckling down clearing the streets and public places when there is no necessity to do so under even the latest Covid rules, and even when people were complying with them. They have actually gone to the length of poisoning scenic lakes so that people will not endanger the new status quo by travelling to look at them and enjoy the scenery and the fresh, healthy air.

This is no surprise, really, as it is axiomatic that the more power given to any police, the more they will abuse it. That is a law of nature, has ever been thus, and is one which in this particular case is exacerbated by three factors. The first is that their officer class is, on the whole, populated by graduate Common Purpose drones and ambitious box-tickers who appear to have nothing but contempt for Peelian principles. I doubt if they’re even taught anymore at Bramshill* (or whatever they’ve restructured and renamed it in the name of PC progress since 2015).

The second is that the collective IQ of the beat constabulary is now not, shall we say, particularly high for reasons iterated below, and thus thinking things through pragmatically in the light of observed reality is not really their forte. This leads them to function as a type of pre-programmed automata in accordance with the vague instructions given to them in their last briefing from the drones and box-tickers who have even less of a clue about what is happening in the real world.

The third and final — and the one with perhaps the most detrimental effect on the front line — is the introduction of ‘Affirmative Action’ over the last few decades and the consequent lowering of physical and mental entry qualifications in order to meet politically mandated quotas, many of such recruits having ideological motivations not in keeping with those of the majority population they exercise power over.

These powers are not something they or the government will willingly give up, and it is not out of the question that come the day — in approximately six months by my reckoning when they should do so by self-relinquishing these powers through the ‘Sunset Clause’ recently appended to the enabling legislation — they may not, but extend instead.

Consequently, for the time being, when being questioned or having your thoughts corrected, being fined or arrested, just smile sweetly, be polite and always use English with as many three or more syllable words as you can muster. There is little else you can or should do until the moment of truth re the Sunset Clause — and if it is extended, then…

Religion vs Religion

In his latest essay, our Israeli correspondent MC wades into the deepest swamps of the Culture Wars.

Religion vs Religion

by MC

Perhaps my love of America and all things American has its roots in the regular supply of US comics sent to my brother and me by various relatives in the ’50s and ’60s, and amongst which was the occasional edition of MAD magazine.

Much of MAD was over my young head, but Spy vs Spy was always amusing and sticks in my mind, especially their pointed snouts clamped together when investigating a box (trap) from opposite sides.

However, Religion vs (political) Religion is not so amusing, nor is it confined to ink and paper, for the successful side of Western culture is defined by its (Christian) religion, and its demise is defined by the political religions which seek to destroy Christianity and all that goes with it.

The Christian revolution (I am not a Christian but I believe in the Bible) occurred when the Bible was translated into local languages and printed for all to read, and the Church was dragged out of its roots of feudalism (slavery) into what became democracy and even republicanism.

An important part of this process was the separation of Church and State; the Church having been responsible for many abuses that had held the communities of Europe in thrall for over a thousand years.

The feudal system over which the Church held suzerainty was a typical product of tyranny: a small elite, the aristocracy, owning most of the people as serfs, to do with as they please, and a tiny middle class of tradesmen to manufacture those things consumed by their betters. This was just a slight variation on the ‘warlord’ culture that has run most of the world from time immemorial and to this day in some places.

In the UK the feudal system was broken first by the Black Death, which killed off some 30% of the workforce. The subsequent competition for labour destroyed the idea of ‘ownership’ of people. Secondly, and as a consequence of this pandemic, a growing equality of opportunity was provided by increasing access to quality education. Ex-slaves and serfs used their newfound freedom to better themselves.

Under the feudal system, the church provided education and the higher-IQ peasant children were syphoned off into the cloisters. To a great extent this provided the stability required as potential peasant leaders were ‘kidnapped’ into religion (Janissaries, anybody?). Heresy invited a death penalty and life was cheap. In feudal times the Church was very much a political religion, and the Pope reigned over all the monarchs of Europe.

All this emerging freedom from under the tyranny of political religion, however, took hundreds of years to get to the idea of individual liberty. The cultural and economic impacts were minimised by being spread over such a genteel timescale. My paternal grandfather was a boy coalminer at age 12, but his sons went to grammar schools, receiving a quality education, and his youngest son even got a bachelor’s degree in engineering.

But do not think that the ‘elites’ did not fight back. Their main ploy was to create another politicized version of the feudal system that the church had failed to sustain. This took the form of ‘socialism’ where the elite claimed to be working in the best interests of the ‘working class’ by controlling all aspects of their lives. This was yet another political religion, of which we have now seen quite a few forms. Each causes its own mayhem, because there is no separation between political religion and state, and thus there is nothing to stop the killing when it inevitably starts.

Sweden Must Die

Many thanks to LN for translating this article from Fria Tider:

Demonstration in Malmö: “Sweden must die”

March 9, 2020

“Sweden must die.” This was one of the messages when left-wing activists demonstrated at Möllevångstorget in Malmö.

During a march in Malmö on International Women’s Day on Sunday one of the protesters carried a sign with the message that Sweden must die. On other signs there were, among others, slogans such as “Klasskamp = transkamp“ (Class struggle = trans fight).

“Not really what the labor movement’s pioneers August Palm and Kata Dalström might have intended,” writes the local party Malmölistan, which published the photo from the demonstration.

The newly-formed Malmö list consists of a large breakaway group from the Communist Party in Malmö that has had enough of the so-called “middle-class left” and its focus on cultural Marxist issues.

“They do not understand why so many workers do not think that multiculturalism, the LGBTQ movement and Greta Thunberg are something fantastic, but think we are in 1930s Germany and that workers who vote SD were infected by some Nazi illness,” said Nils Littorin, who is now the party leader for the Malmö list, to the local newspaper in connection with the mass outflow from the Communist Party in December.

The Tram Trial

Our Dutch correspondent H. Numan follows up on last week’s reports on the Utrecht tram mujahid with additional details and context.

The tram trial

by H. Numan

I’ll expand on this article about Gökmen Tanis, the Utrecht tram killer. First of all, in The Netherlands, like in most western countries, we don’t have the death penalty. We do have life in prison. It is exactly that: you go out with your feet first. The king can grant a royal pardon, but that happens rarely. In the few cases someone has been granted a royal pardon, it was to let them die (usually of old age) outside prison.

As you probably can guess, this doesn’t sit well with our progressives, who want to abolish this “life is for life” sentence. A notorious murderer, Cevdet Ilmaz, received life in prison for killing six people on a shooting spree in a bar in Delft in 1983. Motivation? Someone said he wasn’t a real Dutchman. Which he proved by gunning wildly around him. He’s doing fine in jail, though he constantly asks for a royal pardon. Progressives support his requests, and want him to be able to start ‘rehabilitation training’.

I don’t have a problem with that. Happy to oblige. Here’s a coffin. Go lie down in it. Comfy? No? Try turning to the other side. There you go. You are now fully trained for going outside again. Cevdet was a precocious innovator. Today he would have been a muslim terrorist or a poor victim of discrimination. Back then, only the PLO were muslim terrorists. During the ’70s and ’80s red terrorism was our main problem. The PLO was just a sideshow, though an important one.

Now let’s go back to Gökmen. This piece of excrement was born in 1981 in Turkey and moved with his family to The Netherlands in 1993. His parents divorced in 2008. Gökmen stayed with his mother. He was addicted to hard drugs. In between periods of treatment he became religious. He didn’t have many (or any) friends, and was highly aggressive when using drugs. He lived with his mother in Kanaleneiland, a predominantly muslim ghetto in Utrecht. It is not mentioned anywhere, but read between the lines. I doubt very much if he graduated from primary school, let alone high school. Given his friendly disposition, I very much doubt if he ever did an honest day of work. In other words: from the moment the family migrated he caused nothing but trouble. At great cost to our society.

In 2011 he was interviewed by GeenStijl TV. He told the female interviewer she was a slut and a whore because of her dress. In 2013 he shot at an apartment in Kanaleneiland without hitting anyone. He was convicted of illegal possession of a firearm and sentenced to 150 days in jail, of which he served 49 days.

In 2017 he raped a girl, possibly his girlfriend. A few weeks later he was paroled on conditions. After he broke his parole he was rearrested, but released again when he promised to keep his promises. He had to appeal for that. (At whose cost do you think? His own? Think again.)

In 2019 he went on trial for burglary and theft of a bicycle. The verdict was not yet handed down when our busy young man went on his killing spree in the tram. He aimed specifically at non-muslims. A few witnesses say they stood behind muslims in the tram. That’s why they weren’t targeted, as he couldn’t see them.

Debate in Die Linke: Shoot the Rich? Or Send Them to the Gulag?

A controversy has emerged in Germany recently over remarks made at a party strategy conference for Die Linke (The Left). A participant casually referred to shooting the rich “one percent”, and was smilingly corrected by a colleague, who said the rich would simply be sentenced to forced labor.

They sound like Bernie Sanders’ supporters, don’t they?

Brutal Revolutionary Fantasy on the Left

CDU General Secretary: “The attitude of the Left is abhorrent”

March 3, 2020

After the brutal fantasies of revolution in the Left Party, the party and left-wing leader Bernd Riexinger (64) are reaping sharp criticism!

CDU General Secretary Paul Ziemiak (34) speaks of a “disgusting attitude” that a participant in the party’s strategy congress showed on the weekend in Kassel. She called for “a revolution, if we shot one percent of the rich,” and needed an energy transition for heating and mobility.

The fantasy of violence was rewarded by the spectators with roars and applause. Instead of directly reining in his party friend, Left-wing leader Bernd Riexinger fuelled the statement.

Right next to her on the podium, Riexinger listens calmly. His clarification follows: “We don’t shoot them, we use them for useful work.”

For CDU General Ziemiak, the derailments on the left are confirmation of why the federal CDU rejects any cooperation with the party.

To classify Riexinger’s reaction to the Congress (“We don’t shoot them, we use them for useful work.”): In the Soviet Union, historians estimate that more than 30 million people were retrained in labor camps and forced into inhumane labor. Reluctant estimates suggest that about three million of them died in the process.

Swedish Police Chick: “I’m Very Concerned That the Society Has Become So Tolerant”

The following video is a follow-up to the earlier one about “Svenne”, the young Swedish man who was robbed, beaten, and urinated on by his culture-enriching persecutors.

The clip features an interview with a female police chief from the area of Sweden where Svenne was so grievously humiliated. This time we stray just a little bit beyond the pale of politically correct discourse — “vulnerable areas” (i.e. no-go zones inhabited by non-Swedish ethnicities) are discussed, and the issue of ethnicity is briefly touched on. Gingerly, but the fact that it is even mentioned is significant.

When Was the Last Free Election in Germany?

The following essay refers to the brief and temporary break in the cordon sanitaire against the AfD that occurred recently in Thuringia, as reported here on Thursday.

Many thanks to CrossWare for translating this piece from the Hungarian Tuti Blog:

When was the last free election in Germany?

by Paranoid Android
February 7, 2020

With an embarrassed smile we can say that it was a long time ago.

German Communists who welcome the Nazi-Liberal coalition in Hungary as an anti-dictatorial opposition coalition are in effect dismantling a provincial government because someone has received the wrong majority of the vote. By the way, this state was formerly governed by a triple coalition of communists (German Socialist Unity Party, alias Die Linke), stupid liberals (formerly SPD) and angry Greens. This did not offend anyone’s taste, because the Communists committed massacres not out of malice, but of humanism, and the intention was important, not the deed.

To avoid any doubt, we do not like the Alternative for Germany [AfD, Alternative für Deutschland] either, because they are also filled with stupid Germans, but at least they show some basic instincts for life. That is why a bare quarter of voters are already voting for them, because beating people to death in the streets and using German national income to Islamize Europe is not logical. The party press in Germany is trying very hard to explain to them the usefulness of these two things. However, something may have gone awry, because there are some who do not want more Muslims and do not want to learn Arabic.

Good governance is the best tool against the rise of extremist Nazi, fascist, communist, liberal parties.

In Hungary, the establishment of Jobbik was also due to the “unprecedented successful governance” (sarcasm) of Ferenc Gyurcsány [socialist prime minister from 2004 to 2009]. Germany’s extremism is also due to a politician, Merkel, who, for whatever reason she knows, worships ideological decisions that lower Germans’ standard of living and portend, in the medium term, the total collapse of the German nation and Germany.

But the destruction of the German energy system and a few million Muslims were not enough: Merkel also has ideas for killing democracy. A now completely insignificant and sick chancellor, as usual, using the custom of stupid people trying to create a picture of an enemy (the AfD) to gain some attention for her farewell tour. We must note that the views of AfD, with the exception of the mentally ill in all parties, would not only have fit in well with the CDU 25 years ago, but might even have been considered a leftist point of view.

The AfD is a representation of a realization without ideology that current German policies necessarily create a dysfunctional society. It is so obvious that some German law professors have been pondering for a few years how the proliferation of people who do not accept German culture and rules could lead to the end of current German statehood as a result of the disappearance of constitutional values. This was found to be legal nonsense and unconstitutional and illegal. The beauty of liberal thinking is that they are not whining about the real consequences, but only the legal implications.

So Merkel sent a message about how the vote should have turned out.

Singular and Multiple Convergences

Seneca III takes a look at the peculiar dichotomies of the Culture Wars.

In the UK a Muslim man is being prosecuted for removing his son from LGBT lessons, which he claims risk the safety of his child.

“Jabar Hussain, 51, faces fines and potentially time in prison for removing his son for months from the Parkfield Community School in Alum Rock, Birmingham. The dispute emerged after the introduction of the LGBT inspired ‘No Outsiders’ curriculum, that inspired protests from mostly Muslim parents in the school district.” [Breitbart]

The full report is here.

What surprised me after a first glance at the leading comments was that they massively came out in support of Hussein’s position. My second surprise was that this was precisely the conclusion that I had subliminally come to as I read through the article, and that for me is a very dichotomous position to end up in.

That the implantation in young minds of a retrogressive evolutionary aberration of this type could be of such anathema to the most socio-inhumanistic and primitive ethnic grouping currently occupying large parts of this country tells us something about the magnitude of this aberration’s assault. That they, already trapped in a fourteen-hundred-year old sessile cul de sac, should be able discern that this means they are being forced even deeper into that cul de sac demonstrates an awareness buried deep in species memory. Is it not a pity that so few of the rest of us fail to see this thing for what it is, or allow ourselves to be forced to stand back and do nothing about it for fear of persecution?

Well, one thing is for sure: both the secular and the spiritual are equally vulnerable to this corrosive plague that is taking deep root in the human psyche. Those who are still of sound, uninfected mind intuitively understand that any movement towards a state contrary to biological reality is a sure path to extinction should we fail to deal with it, no matter how draconian the treatment may have to be.

In all, it is a most difficult task to determine which is the most dangerous pathogen of our time — Coronavirus 2019-nCoV, Islam, the Political Classes and their enforcers, or the demented, cis- and transgendered, multiple personal pronouned LGBTXYZ alphabet soup and their equally mindless ‘Woke’ acolytes.

Perhaps all or three at once could be the answer, each with a vector of its own but each vector ending at the same point in time and space, a place where these intellectually and morally deficient creatures will have destroyed nations, cultures and traditions throughout the West leaving only a sterile physical and metaphysical wilderness behind them.

So, how many horsemen of the apocalypse are there really? One, three or four?

Afterword. I did not categorise the ecoloons as a stand-alone pathogen because I always include them within the same sub-grouping as the carbon-tax-benefitting Political Classes. They are just monkeys belonging to and performing for these wealthy organ grinders.

— Seneca III, in a mostly uninfected part of Middle England on the 7th day of February in this the year of our Lord 2020
