I Do Not Like That Ham-I-Am

Our German translator JLH has a few things to say about the latest “News of the Weird” story from South Africa.

One of the many things you can learn by reading the news at Gates of Vienna

by JLH

Let’s see if I understand this. Burger King is removing the syllable “ham” from “hamburger” in South Africa so as not to offend anyone. The best statistic I can uncover is that Islam accounts for 1.5% of the ca. 56 million South Africans. The largest single religious group is Protestant Christianity. In second place are those who profess no religion. It makes you wonder whom Burger King consulted (or was directed by). Certainly not the local Jewish lobby. When is the last time you ever heard the owner of a Jewish deli complain to the ADL about the BBQ bar and grill next door advertising spareribs?

This is a pioneering alteration to the language. The word for a type of sausage originally named after its city of origin is reduced to a severed trunk (-burg) that means “fort.” In US English, at any rate, calling somewhere a “burg” is not particularly flattering. I know because I come from a state with a lot of burgs. If I were a citizen of one of the largest cities in Germany — an international port, a center of trade, and an original member of the Hanseatic League — I would not like to be told that I was living in -burg.

This presents a whole new vista of linguistic change, calling up fond memories of the Hitlerian desire to expunge foreign words and phrases from the German language.

Where else in English, for instance, can we find this insidious infidel word “ham”? Perhaps in the Broadway musical about one of the Founding Fathers — you know, Alexander -ilton. Or in the name of a cute little rodent — the -ster — that is so fond of treadmills. Or, if you don’t want to call a small town a burg, you could call it a -let. And if you damage that place down in the back of your leg, you could say that you hurt your -string. This could lead to some confusion, so it may be better to take the high road and say that you pulled one of the tendons that laterally and medially border the depression in the popliteal fossa. That’s a little clumsy, but there are no infidel words in it. (Unless some really picky Muslim scholar objects to the use of the language of the Roman Church.)

And what if we can’t just remove the offensive syllable? What if that’s all there is? Like “Don’t ham it up.” We just have to substitute, and tell show-offs “Don’t steak it up!” “Don’t be such a steak!”

Just to be safe, we should also do away with the term we use for that crispy stuff we often eat in the morning. The morning special might be called “two eggs any style, with choice of ground infidel meat or infidel crispy stuff.” Alternatively “Canadian infidel crispy stuff and eggs.”

Rasmus Paludan in Canada, Part Two

This is the second installment of Vlad’s interview with Rasmus Paludan, the founder and leader of the Stram Kurs (“Hard Line”) party in Denmark, in Quebec earlier this month. (Part 1 is here.)

As the interview continues, you’ll hear him recount the series of events that led to his having armed police bodyguards accompany him whenever he ventures out of his apartment.

The Mask Comes Off in Deggendorf

The following article from Politically Incorrect accompanied the video of the “Jews are possessed” incident in Bavaria that I posted earlier.

BPE is a reference to Bürgerbewegung Pax Europa.

Deggendorf: Muslim at BPE says “Jews are not human”

by Michael Stürzenberger

Even Islam critics and AfD supporters from Deggendorf were surprised by what happened recently at the Information Rally on Political Islam from the Citizens’ Movement Pax Europa (BPE) in Lower Bavaria. We were told that although there were the usual incidents of violence and harassment with the local “refugee” facility, the Muslims of the DITIB mosque behaved inconspicuously for the most part.

Obviously that’s the case until they are confronted with fundamental criticism of their religion. Then the masks fall and often a rather ugly face emerges. That is the result of indoctrination by a dangerous totalitarian ideology that makes up a large part of this religion — Political Islam.

At the beginning of the rally, I also thought that it was going to be an unspectacular day. There were only local citizens, many sat in the cafes nearby and listened calmly to our information.

But then more and more Muslims showed up. It became loud. Outrage began to spread with outbursts of anger and rage. There were insults. A Muslim woman asked a policeman, in all seriousness, why such an event was allowed to take place which makes Islam “look bad”. The question itself reveals the assumption that Islam is the only true religion and should never be criticised. Which is, after all, also the reality in Islamic countries.

The Muslim at our rally who said with total conviction “Jews are not people” and “Jews are possessed” called our comrade-in-arms Chris, who also wears a star of David around his neck next to a cross, the “devil”. Before that he had insulted me as “You spastic” and “You f****r” and told me I should “shut the f*** up” and said “shut your pothole” to me.

For everyone familiar with Islam, it was foreseeable that the hatred for Jews in Germany would become ever greater with the increase in the number of Muslims from fundamental Islamic countries to our country. This stems directly from the Koran, which denies Jews are human.

Constantin Schreiber has shown in his book Children of the Koran that in many Islamic countries, including Turkey, this indoctrination is spread in schools and therefore firmly anchored in the minds of Muslims. In its hostility towards Jews, the Koran far surpasses Adolf Hitler’s book of hatred and hate Mein Kampf (“My Struggle”).

The infernal and completely irrational fervour with which Muslims from the Gaza Strip and the so-called West Bank, actually called Judea and Samaria, rage against Israel can only be explained by the hatred that is sown against Jews in the Koran. If their god Allah curses Jews, how can they ever accept a Jewish state in an area which they presume to be their own?

Alice Weidel: “The crisis isn’t coming, the crisis is already here”

Alice Weidel is the co-leader (with Alexander Gauland) of the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany).

The following video shows a speech given by Ms. Weidel on the floor of the Bundestag. In it she addresses the manifold failures of the policies of the current German government (a coalition between the Christian Democrats and the Social Democrats) under the chancellorship of Angela Merkel.

Ms. Weidel is blisteringly effective in her presentation, as evidenced by the other parties’ attempts to shout her down. It’s encouraging to hear the list of issues she covers, which extend far beyond the topic of immigration, which is usually the primary focus of the AfD. These policy proposals indicate that the AfD has matured to the point where it has the competence to govern the country, if it is ever given the chance.

Why I Am a Nazi

Many thanks to JLH for translating this essay by Matthias Matussek from Henryk Broder’s website Die Achse des Guten:

Why I Am a Nazi

by Matthias Matussek
August 31, 2019

I am a Nazi. God knows I am not proud of it, especially since it would be a grim, indeed the grimmest, hubris to claim that. Yes, I know what the Nazis did. They marched out in columns or hordes and attacked political opponents. They took a gloating pleasure in denunciation. They betrayed friendships and made sure that their friends were loaded onto trucks and taken to camps and murdered.

They bent over articles and books, not for the joy of reading, but to find “evidence” which could bring the authors into conflict with competitors, deprive them of office and make them objects of scorn. Their writings would be burned, because they did not adhere to the prescribed political line.

I have never denounced a human being because he celebrated his birthday with dubious fellows I didn’t know. “Better to turn someone in to the authorities than end up on the wrong side of things” has never been my way.

Nonetheless, I am a Nazi. Henryk Broder advised me to write that. We were at the Zurich summer WorldWeek festival where there were a lot of other Nazis, for instance our colleague, Alex Bauer, who had been beaten by Antifa and put in the hospital. And where there are Antifa, there are Nazis — you know, where there’s smoke, there’s fire.

We Nazis are multiplying to stay abreast of things, so those who are eager to extinguish us multiply like a brush fire. You could almost surmise that they start fires themselves, just to have something to do.

It was difficult, learning to be a Nazi. I was recognized as a Nazi for the first time by a young lady with blue hair and multiple piercings. It was when I went to a campaign event held by Mr. Gauland of the AfD, whom I had known until then only from television.

I did not have a clue that he was the chair of a, well… of the Nazi party, which as Messiah Schulz shouted out in the Bundestag, belonged “on the ash heap of history.” He got that formulation from Trotsky, who had dealt harshly with counterrevolutionaries.

“Piss off, you Nazi”

I was making my way to Gauland’s campaign appearance through a cordon of bushwhacking, spitting and swearing Antifa partisans, when a girl pressed a note into my hand. I thought it was one of these messages from a Chinese fortune cookie. Maybe her telephone number.

But no. It said: “Piss off, you Nazi.”

I gave it back and said, “Sorry, I’m not a Nazi.” She looked at me bewildered, as I did her.

The next time, I was standing around among Hamburg citizens on the Jungfernstieg, an upscale shopping avenue on [the banks of] the Alster, to take part in a “Merkel has to go” demonstration. The Hamburg Morgenpost-Online — yes, the one with the ads for call girls — announced that where we were standing, neo-Nazis had gathered while hundreds of peaceful counter-demonstrators were marching.

Amsterdam: It’s a Gas, Gas, Gas!

The videos below are not Counterjihad-related; however, they do concern cultural enrichment in a broader sense. They feature a Turkish-Dutch “entrepreneur” who exploits a loophole in the peculiar Dutch laws about the distribution of drugs in order to peddle laughing gas (nitrous oxide, N2O) on the streets of Amsterdam.

He’s an obvious rogue, this gas-dealer, but an engaging one. I can’t help but enjoy his repartee, despite his sordid trade and the decadent environment in which he works.

The Netherlands is well-known for its tolerant attitude towards vice, whether it involves substance abuse, sexual license, or other deviant behaviors. It seems strange that the Dutch Powers That Be should be fastidious about nitrous oxide. Yes, it’s toxic, especially in the quantities you see this dealer inhaling, but hardly more toxic than some of the other recreational highs enjoyed on the streets of Amsterdam.

I’m an old prude, so the unabashed hedonism (on the part of both native Dutch and culture-enrichers) on display in these videos seems creepy to me.

The translator includes these notes about the protagonist in the videos:

Deniz Üresin is a Turkish-Dutch rapper turned “entrepreneur”. A hustler playing the system to deal drugs (laughing gas) on the streets of Amsterdam without legal repercussions. He gets high on his own supply, walks around in camouflage, with a “security” patch on his arm, says he maintains law and order on the street.

Halfway through the first video he says he should be King of the Netherlands. Watch the little speech at the end, where he says he’s the future mayor.

Many thanks to C for the translations, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling.

“Swedish” Rapper Calls for a Race War Against Whites

The following video and its accompanying article from Samhällsnytt showcase a blatant call for a race war against whites by blacks in Sweden. It’s important to note that the outspoken young man featured in the video has Swedish citizenship.

It doesn’t get any clearer than this, yet the Gutmenschen of Sweden continue to pretend that everything is fine and dandy in the Humanitarian Superpower. Except for climate change, of course, but Greta’s going to take care of that.

Rap artist from Lund calls for death for whites: “Shoot them”

by Simon Kristoffersson

A YouTube personality and rap artist well-known among young people has started a closed account on social media in which he invites only black people. In several video postings, he calls for the murder of white people in Sweden. Samhällsnytt has gained access to the account and can now reveal the way a Nigerian immigrant propagates racism to hundreds of young people. “If some white guy or white girl tries to talk s*** about you — shoot them.”

The well-known YouTube personality is “JCBUZ”, who has 280,000 subscribers on his two YouTube accounts, in which he reviews current hip hop records in Sweden and shares his own gangster-inspired rap music. JCBUZ, whose real name is Jesse Ekene Nweke Conable, is 22 years old and has a registered residence in Lund. According to the tax police, he immigrated from Nigeria in 2008 and now has Swedish citizenship.

On a newly-registered and locked Instagram account under the name “barasvarta” (black only) several video clips with JCBUZ have been uploaded. In the presentation text for the account, which has 465 followers up to now, followers can read: “Black Power in Sweden” and “Only for Blacks”.

Samhällsnytt has gained access into the account, where it is clear that only blacks should be allowed to access to the content. Below is a photo update from his account where he states that he does not allow any white people to join the group.

On Tuesday several video clips were uploaded on the account where the rap artist incited murder against white people in Sweden.

Text above video:

“Created our group so we get it together”

JCBUZ states in a post that he has created “our group” so that blacks will get together in the fight. He means that blacks “must take over”.

Below is JCBUZ’ speech and the video clip:

“My brothers and sisters, my black brothers and sisters, I have an important message for you. I only want to say to you, my black brothers and sisters out there: You are special and nobody is like you. Continue the war.

“We will take over — we will be number one — one beautiful day we will become number one. We will take over those whites here. Just like these whites took us as slaves, we will take them as slaves and treat them even worse.

“But right now we’re just fighting among ourselves. We’re going to be smarter, we’re going to be faster, we’re going to be the best at everything. We’ll take their bitches and we’ll take their money. To be perfectly honest, we will be the best race ever. This is only the beginning; it is starting small but believe me, we will grow and grow bigger. We will be the strongest group in Sweden — no one will dare mess with us. Just wait, a beautiful day.

An Islamic Party for Sweden

It appears that Sweden, like Belgium will soon have its very own Islamic political party.

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

Pro-Islamic party wants to recruit controversial Muslims

September 12, 2019

The newly-formed Nyans Party, which wants to promote Muslim interests in Sweden, will invest both locally and in the Riksdag [parliament] ahead of the next elections in 2022.

Its founder Mikail Yüksel believes the party will join the council in Växjö, he says in Lokaltidningen. The municipality is already 25% immigrant.

It was in August that the Nyans Party, “the party for the country’s suburbs”, was launched via an article in the Aftonbladet Debate.

Behind the party stands the former Center Party politician Mikail Yüksel, who was excluded from the party last year due to contacts with the Turkish Gray Wolves, which has been called “a security threat to Sweden” and is designated as an Islamist group, where Islam is seen as the “cure” of humanity.

Among other things, the party wants to make Islamophobia a crime classification all its own in Sweden, and ensure that Muslims are enrolled in the Constitution as a special group like Jews and Saamis [Lapps] with minority status.

In a new interview with Lokaltidningen in Växjö, Yüksel explains that the party aims, among other things, to get onto the Växjö City Council. There people already work for the party, and as many as 25% of the municipality’s residents are immigrants. Entering would require only 1,200 votes.

Local chapters will also be started in Gothenburg, Malmö, Stockholm and Örebro. But the main goal is to get into parliament in 2022.

However, Mikail Yüksel does not want to be a party leader himself. In that regard, he would like to see the former housing minister and MP politician Mehmet Kaplan, who in 2016 had to resign after it emerged that he had been at a dinner with the Gray Wolves.

“Mehmet Kaplan is as cut/scissors and cut/knife for the assignment as party leader for Party Nyans. He has experience working in government and parliament,” says Mikail Yüksel to Lokaltidningen.

Yüksel also wants to “attract” another controversial Muslim, Yasri Khan. Khan also resigned from the Environment Party in 2016 after refusing to shake hands with a TV4 reporter because she was a woman.

Valerie Price and Rasmus Paludan Discuss the Political Situation in Canada

Valerie Price is the founder and national director of ACT! For Canada.

Rasmus Paludan is a Danish activist who was relatively unknown until his sacrilegious treatment of a Koran got him into a spot of bother in Nørrebro back in April. The incident propelled him into political prominence, so that his party (Stram Kurs, “Hard Line”) gained 1.8% of the vote in June’s parliamentary elections.

In the following video recorded at last weekend’s retreat in Quebec, Ms. Price and Mr. Paludan discuss the current political situation in Canada, with a particular focus on next month’s elections. Despite his being the center of a series of scandals, Justin “Baby Doc” Trudeau is expected to win re-election. However, Maxime Bernier and his party, the People’s Party of Canada, are showing surprising strength in the latest polls.

Some Planes Did Something

I borrowed the title of this post from Steven Hayward’s 9-11 piece at Power Line. See also “Ilhan Omar’s 9/11”.

Dymphna and I have been posting these 9-11 anniversary essays once a year, beginning in 2005, so this makes the fifteenth. I’m on my own now, and I must admit to a certain discouragement: in the eighteen years since the Twin Towers fell, our ability to identify and deal with the danger of Islamization has markedly deteriorated.

Readers who are old enough to recall the fall of 2001 may remember the robust public discussions about Islam that took place during the months after September 11, even in the MSM. Even on NPR! I remember listening to the op-eds during “All Things Considered” in the car on my way home from work. Yes, the general conclusion — led by the pronouncements of President George W. “Religion of Peace” Bush — was that the perpetrators of 9-11 were “extremists” who had “hijacked a great religion”. But Islam was mentioned, and it was even possible to publicly dissent from the “extremist-vs.-moderate” party line without being hounded from one’s job and driven into hiding.

Not any more.

Over the intervening years, the patient infiltration and indoctrination by the Muslim Brotherhood has borne fruit. The word “Islam” is rarely used in any public commemorations of 9-11. In fact, the public remembrances themselves are becoming more and more frowned upon and stigmatized as “racist”, “white supremacist”, etc., etc.

In the Long War, Ilhan Omar is winning, and we traditional Americans are losing.

Mark Steyn says it much better than I ever could in “The Language of Losing”. Some excerpts:

The eighteenth anniversary of 9/11 was marked by the Administration inviting the Taliban to Camp David, and by the resignation and/or firing of John Bolton as National Security Advisor — which two events may not be unconnected. Because really, when the Taliban are running around Camp David, who needs national security?

[…]

We run around fighting for worthless bits of barren sod like Helmand province in Afghanistan, while surrendering day by day some of the most valuable real estate on the planet, such as France and Sweden.

[…]

In any war, you have to be able to prioritize: You can’t win everything, so where would you rather win? Raqqa or Rotterdam? Kandahar or Cannes? Yet, whenever some guy goes Allahu Akbar on the streets of a western city, the telly pundits generally fall into one of two groups: The left say it’s no big deal, and the right say this is why we need more boots on the ground in Syria or Afghanistan. Yesterday President Trump said he was committed to ensuring that terrorists “never again have a safe haven to launch attacks against our country”.

By that he means “safe havens” in Afghanistan. But the reason the west’s enemies are able to pile up a continuous corpse count in Paris, Nice, Berlin, Brussels, London, Manchester, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Orlando, San Bernadino, Ottawa, Sydney, Barcelona, [Your Town Here] is because they have “safe havens” in France, Germany, Britain, Scandinavia, North America, etc. Which “safe havens” are likely to prove more consequential for the developed world in the years ahead?

Viktor Orbán Among The Christians

Rod Dreher has written an excellent account at the The American Conservative of his meeting with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán in Budapest. Below are some excerpts:

Viktor Orbán Among The Christians

by Rod Dreher

I arrived in Budapest on Friday to deliver a speech at a conference for Christian communicators from around the world. At the last minute, conference organizers alerted some of us that Prime Minister Viktor Orbán would like to meet with us privately at the end of the event. We boarded a bus and headed to Buda Castle, where he received us in a salon. I assumed it would be a quick meet-and-greet. Hardly! He spoke with us for about 90 minutes, and answered our questions frankly. Here’s a shot of the group, whose number included John O’Sullivan and Philip Blond, two names familiar to Anglo-American conservatives:

Mind you, I think I John O’Sullivan and I were the only professional journalists in the room, so this was not a press conference. I did not know that we would be offered to opportunity to speak to the PM beyond saying hello, much less that we would be able to ask questions. Therefore, I didn’t prepare for an interview, and in any case I only had the chance to put a single question.

I tell you this so you readers don’t ask me why I didn’t challenge Orbán on this or that policy of his government. I am perfectly aware that he is a controversial figure who has done things and pursued policy goals that are highly controversial for a number of reasons. However, this was a completely unexpected opportunity to be in the presence of one of the most extraordinary world leaders of our time, and to get a sense of his mind.

If the only thing you know about Viktor Orbán is from Western media accounts, you would think that he was nothing but some kind of mafia thug. The Viktor Orbán you encounter in person is very, very different from the Viktor Orbán shown to Americans by our media. In Orbán — who speaks good English — was energetic, fiercely intelligent, funny, self-deprecating, realistic, and at times almost pugilistic in talking about defending Hungary and her interests. Orbán is what Trump’s biggest fans wish he was (but isn’t), and what Trump’s enemies think him to be (but isn’t). If Donald Trump had the smarts and skills of Viktor Orbán, the political situation in the US would be much, much different — for better or for worse, depending on your point of view.

Orbán begin our session with extended remarks about Hungarian and European politics, and the role of his Fidesz Party in them. He said that when he was elected in 2010, he had one mission: to save Hungary from economic ruin. By the time Orbán’s 2014 re-election bid rolled around, the economy was stable, and he described the mission of his second terms as “to say what I think.”

“I realized in 2014 that I was the only free man among the prime ministers of Europe,” he said, explaining that by “free,” he meant that he had a strong, united parliamentary majority behind him. He added, “In Western political life now, you can’t say what you think.”

When the migration crisis hit Europe in 2015, Orbán famously shut Hungary’s borders to Middle Easterners. Orbán said that Hungary’s was the only government in Europe to respond to the crisis in its own interests, and in the interests of Christianity in Europe. With a population of only 10 million, and as a country where Christianity, as elsewhere on the continent, is fragile, the Hungarians concluded that allowing large numbers of Muslims to take up residence here would mean the death knell of Christianity in time.

This scandalized the European political class. Orbán doesn’t care. He told our group that he understands that he is dealing with elites who believe that being a post-Christian, post-national civilization is a great and glorious thing. Orbán rejects this. He said the main political question in the West today is how fractious pluralities can live together peaceably. He said, “Here the most important question is how not to have the same questions as them.”

Napalming Western Culture

The three videos below seem to me to be related, even though Miss Piggy discovered them seriatim and translated them separately. Taken together, they provide a disturbing gestalt of the political and cultural nightmare that has engulfed Modern Multicultural Germany.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling.

#1 Islamization

Ralf Stegner is the current leader of the SPD (Social Democrats) in Schleswig-Holstein. The following brief video shows remarks made by Mr. Stegner at the SPD regional conference (a sort of town hall meeting for SPD members, who were permitted to ask questions) in Saarland on September 5. He is a candidate for the leadership of the SPD, along with the woman sitting next to him, Gesine Schwann.

#2 Napalm

The second video features remarks by a German vlogger about a young comedienne who displays the typical attitude held by affluent and well-educated Wessis (West Germans) towards Ossis, citizens of the former DDR. The latter region is sometimes referred to as “Dunkeldeutschland”, or “Dark Germany”. Ossis are more likely to be nationalists and religious Christians than their enlightened brethren in the West, which is why they are often treated as objects of contempt by the bien-pensants.

#3 Kill the Christians

The final video draws together the threads in #1 and #2. It shows a cell phone video recorded by a teenage girl in a high school in Halle, in which you can hear a Muslim immigrant acknowledge that it is his duty to kill Christians.

This provides a glimpse of who — after the successful Islamization of German communities — will deploy the cultural napalm against the benighted nationalists and Christians of Dunkeldeutschland.

The article below (also translated by MissPiggy) from Politikstube accompanies Video #3:

Halle: Muslim wants to slaughter girl (17) because she is a Christian

A 17-year-old girl from Halle, Germany posts her story on Facebook and gets mobbed by “good” people for just telling the story:

Linda from Halle: I deal with these guys every day. I live in Halle, in a bad neighbourhood, although the area is actually very nice, with many trees. But all you hear is: “A Syrian stabbed someone, the wife of an Afghani was robbed, young children threaten smaller children with knives, or refugee stabs German man.”

Two years ago, at the age of 15, I was almost raped. I have already been spit on, kicked, pushed against the elevator, in my own building. I live in a tower block. My dogs have been spit on and kicked when I wasn’t looking.

Two weeks ago I was sitting in the tram, and a foreigner was standing next to me, pressing his thing against me constantly. The first time I thought to myself, OK, he did it accidentally maybe, but he did it three more times. Then, of course, I told him my opinion.

Here’s the saddest thing: I published a video about it and what kind of reaction did I get? “You’ve started a smear campaign”, “It’s disgusting how you just lump them all together”, “JUST because you’ve had a bad encounter ONCE doesn’t mean every foreigner is like that.”

Despite having clearly stated my point of view in my post, most of the people who commented just twisted my words any which way they wanted.
