The Past is a Foreign Country

The past is a foreign country; they do things differently there.

— L.P. Hartley, from The Go-Between

The title of Dymphna’s post from a couple of nights ago reminded me of an old song from my childhood, “Carry Me Back to Old Virginny”. I could remember the tune and the first couple of lines, and I had a vague idea that it had been composed by Stephen Foster.

But I was wrong — I looked up the Wikipedia entry on it, and it was written in 1878 by a black man named James Bland.

I had also forgotten how “racially insensitive” — as Wikipedia puts it — the full lyrics were. But, really, how could they be described that way, given that they were written by a black person, and a freed slave at that?

Anyway, here they are, a relic of a bygone and foreign era:

Carry me back to old Virginny.
There’s where the cotton and corn and taters grow.
There’s where the birds warble sweet in the spring-time.
There’s where this old darkey’s heart am long’d to go.

There’s where I labored so hard for old Massa,
Day after day in the field of yellow corn;
No place on earth do I love more sincerely
Than old Virginny, the state where I was born.

[CHORUS]
Carry me back to old Virginny.
There’s where the cotton and the corn and taters grow;
There’s where the birds warble sweet in the spring-time.
There’s where this old darkey’s heart am long’d to go.

Carry me back to old Virginny,
There let me live till I wither and decay.
Long by the old Dismal Swamp have I wandered,
There’s where this old darkey’s life will pass away.

Massa and Missis have long gone before me,
Soon we will meet on that bright and golden shore.
There we’ll be happy and free from all sorrow,
There’s where we’ll meet and we’ll never part no more.

[CHORUS]

Exercise for advanced-level students of political history: Analyze the above song without referring to the concepts of “racism”, “white privilege”, “discrimination”, “white supremacism”, or “racial stereotyping”.

Mosques: Learning Curve Needed

Mosques: Learning Curve Needed

by Michael Copeland

The leader of Worcester City Council, Marc Bayliss, happened to be passing when Britain First, a young political party, held a day of campaigning in Worcester city centre against the planned large new mosque there. When he confronted Britain First’s leader, Bayliss revealed quite how much of a learning curve yet awaits him and is needed. Importantly, his outlook is almost certainly shared by millions, in what can be called the Normal Assumed View. This is the British goodwill/fair play view which, not being very interested in religion, relies heavily on assumptions, and is not strong on facts. Bayliss’s arguments make a useful and telling exposure of an urgent need nationwide. The exchange was recorded and can be seen on Britain First’s Facebook page.

Bayliss said there were churches in Saudi Arabia. Not so. No church is permitted. No Bible may be brought into the country, and no cross may be displayed. When a former Archbishop of Canterbury, George Carey, was on a flight that was diverted to Saudi Arabia he was instructed to remove the pectoral cross he was wearing. Saudi Arabia, the home of Islam, is strongly anti-Christian. This is because Islam itself is strongly anti-Christian, and, for that matter, strongly opposed to all other religions and to atheism. No temples are permitted, and no synagogues. No Jew may even enter the State. No non-muslim may set foot in Mecca. Saudi Arabia is a hard-line observer of Islam’s restrictions.

Bayliss was critical of Britain First’s campaign. Evidently he regarded it as a needless provocation:

“I am very proud of a mosque in Worcester, which is a peaceful, loving community where people get on.”

“Tell me why you are opposing a mosque,” said Bayliss. This question was not answered, but some observations may be made here.

In the Normal Assumed View, like Bayliss’s, a mosque is on a par with a church, or a synagogue. Not so. A mosque, as former professor of Islamic law, Sam Solomon, explains, is NOTHING LIKE A CHURCH. Every mosque is modelled on Mohammed’s first mosque in Medina. It is where military training takes place, where punishments are decided, where jihad plans are made and expeditions launched; it is a court, a school, a forum where news of sex-slaves can be exchanged, and where a market can be set up for forged passports and the like. It is an assembly space where tabs can be kept on others: members can observe who is failing to attend; pressure can be put on any brother whose daughter is not wearing Islamic attire, or being too Western. It is a place for reinforcing Islamic apartheid. Non-muslims are NOT PERMITTED in the worship, where the fiery sermons instructing hatred are given. “Between us and you enmity and hatred forever…” says Koran 60:4, part of Islamic law. The mosque is the place for furthering Islam’s commanded mission — to make all people everywhere Islamic, by force if needed, in the commanded Global Caliphate.

“Does Islam or does it not force people by the power of the sword to submit? Yes,” explained Osama bin Laden. The commanded imperative is that Islam Must Dominate. Muslims should not accept rule by non-muslims. Islam has to prevail over all, and Islam is in “a permanent state of war” with all non-muslims, who have to be hated. Muslims inhabit Dar al-Islam, the realm of Islam: non-muslims, “filth” in Islam’s teachings, inhabit Dar al-Harb, the Realm of War. It is very political. Well over half the Koran concerns non-muslims, and how they must be hated and overpowered.

Virginia Is an Embarrassment to Dems

Tucker Carlson nailed it last night. And his cameras showed how beautiful Virginia could be…if it weren’t for those bug-ugly politicians in Richmond:

Mr. Carlson addresses the strange phenomenon of a long American tradition, white folk wearing blackface. It’s a harmless tradition – isn’t imitation the highest form of flattery? But perhaps our politics of resentment and envy trump humor (so to speak).

Then again I never did mind the “thick mick” jokes I used to hear about me and my kin.

Eric Zemmour: “It’s Called INVASION, It’s Not Called MIGRATION”

Henryk Broder Speaks to the AfD in the Bundestag

Many thanks to JLH for translating the transcript of Henryk Broder’s speech published in Die Welt:

Address Given by Henryk Broder to The AfD

January 31, 2019

(On January 29, 2019, the AfD in the Bundestag had invited Broder to speak. He accepted the invitation “despite the misgivings of my attorney and my wife.”)

The Speech:

Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. Thank you for inviting me. I have been to the Bundestag often before, most recently at the committee on petitions. But I have never given a speech to a party in the parliament. My first choice would have been the Greens. I would even have come by bicycle or rowboat. But the Greens have not yet reached the point where they would invite someone like me. For that, I would have had to start separating my trash, heating sparingly and using less water. I don’t do that.

I don’t even believe in climate change; there has not been a day in history when the climate didn’t change. Climate change is as new as the perpetual sequence of winter, spring, summer and fall. The only thing that is new is that the climate has become a fetish for the enlightened who believe neither in Jesus, Moses or Mohammed. The Brit, Gilbert Chesterton — creator of Father Brown — had it right when he said: “Since people no longer believe in God, they don’t believe in nothing; they believe in all imaginable nonsense.

The worldwide hype about a 16-year-old Swedish girl who considers herself the second coming of Joan of Arc has proven this again in recent days.

But that is just by the way, a warm-up. Back to the beginning. Just as I wonder why you invited me and not Richard David Precht[1], you are wondering why I accepted the invitation.

It’s quite simple. You wanted to see whether someone who can write as well as I can can speak as well — in the cave, or perhaps the hell[2] of the brown-spotted lion, the snake pit of Reaction, the darkroom of history. And besides, you wanted to know if I am really as congenial as I appear on television.

A number of you may never have seen a living Jew in his natural state, and are waiting to see if the room will be filled with the odor of garlic and sulfur.

I, on the other hand, like doing something I have never done before. Recently, for the first time, I was on a crusade — and I liked it. On my bucket list to accomplish before my 75th birthday are a visit to a swingers club, a journey to the center of the Earth and a trip on the Trans-Siberian Railroad with Florian Sibereisen[3] as my personal butler.

A visit with you was not on my bucket list. Nonetheless, I was happy to accept the invitation. When does a Jew have the opportunity to appear in a room full of Nazis, Neo-Nazis, crypto-Nazis and para-Nazis?

Besides, I am only doing what the federal president recently counseled. We should come together, become better acquainted, speak with one another, in order to strengthen the cohesion of this society.

That is exactly what I am doing. I am a bridge-builder, a conciliator. I advocate a diverse, open and tolerant society where no one is excluded. I do not judge the people around me on the basis of ethnicity, skin color or religion; rather — to put it plainly — whether they accept opinions other than their own. I am tolerant to the point of self-denial. There is just one group of human beings of whom I will not be tolerant — the intolerant, who appoint themselves as the measure of all things, and either deny me eternal life in paradise if I wish to follow them, or promise me a place in hell if I deny them.

That, ladies and gentlemen, was the introduction. Now the main part.

Conservatives, Liberals, and Leftists

This could as well be titled “The Death of Civility”. I would say “public civility” but you’re not even safe at Thanksgiving Dinner anymore.

If there is one thing that defines leftists, it’s their rude, nothing’s-too-crude forms of rhetoric and their favorite past time, scapegoating.

Prager U’s brief delineation of the problem is spot-on.

There is any number of recent examples of this sad phenomenon; you can see them in our nightly newsfeed. Just to name two of the most egregious, see the attempted slaughter of that schoolboy, Nicholas Sandmann. He had the hate-filled audacity to stand gazing at a stranger who walked up to him banging a drum in his face. The man – a professional “Native American” – clearly invaded the young man’s personal space (not to mention damaging his hearing by pounding on that drum up next to his ear), but it was Nicholas who was excoriated repeatedly for his so-called “smirk”. It was just one more group demonization by leftists hungering for scapegoats. And, no, “slaughter” is not too extreme a word to employ in this case; there have been calls from rabid leftists to hurt/kill him and his family.

The scapegoats du jour are white males, of which Nicholas Sandmann is one.

A further example is Virginia’s governor, Ralph “Coonman” Northam, who expressed agreement with a proposed bill in the Commonwealth’s legislature that would permit infanticide. That bill has since been removed from consideration but now it appears ol’ Ralph is about to resign/be impeached. For supporting this dead-letter piece of legislation? Nope. He’s guilty of having posed in a racist picture back in the 1980s; that is his mortal sin. “Racism” is the current unforgivable. Infanticide is okay, though; witness New York’s new abortion law.

Governor Northam is an unexceptional politician. Most Virginia governors are unexceptional; they are limited to one six-year term so the office is used as a stepping stone to bigger political plums. While the state tends to vote Republican in national elections, our governors are usually Democrats. Those who ran against Northam in the primaries are kicking themselves for not having found his medical school yearbook photo, but you can be sure that in the future all political “oppositional research” will include digging into yearbooks, looking for dirt on potential candidates.

The main thing that concerns me about a new election (besides the state and local expense) is that a former candidate, Tom Perriello – defeated in the primary – will jump at the chance to run again. Our Congressional District knows Perriello all too well. He’s a Soros boy, working somewhere in the bowels of George’s “Open Society” leftist org. During the 2008 election, he rode in on Obama’s coattails, only lasting one season. Back then, the B and I were part of a group who questioned him about our rights as citizens. The question posed to this Yale-graduated lawyer was, “what is considered to be the origin of individual Americans’ rights?”. To which he answered, “the government”. Someone then reminded him that our rights were stipulated in The Declaration of Independence when we formally rose up against England. So our rights pre-date the U.S. Constitution. Lucky for us, we won that War of Independence.

It is now open season on white males all the way back to their potty training, maybe even to misdeeds discovered on their mothers’ sonograms.

Oh, Craven New World!

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

The next in line for governor when Northam resigns is our Lieutenant Governor, Justin Fairfax. He should be a shoo-in, given that he’s an African American, right? Wrong. There is now an accusation of sexual assault dating back to 2004.

Are you news-fatigued yet? That’s life with those leftists, or as Mark Steyn calls them, the Wokestapo. They are indefatigable…and deeply. eternally resentful.

The Wanton Slaughter of Free Speech in America

Long-time readers will remember Michael Hansen, a.k.a. “The Dane”, a Danish-American documentary maker who produced two ground-breaking movies, Killing Europe and Killing Canada. He was scheduled to show the latter film in Canada, but the venue cancelled the showing at the last minute. Ironically enough, he was then booked to speak in Ottawa about what happened to Killing Canada, and the implications for free speech, but that appearance was also cancelled at the last minute.

His experiences in Canada prompted him to examine the state of free speech in the USA. The result was a movie called Killing Free Speech. He showed an early version to local representatives of the border patrol officers’ union in San Diego, and they liked it so much that a screening was planned for the national organization in Washington DC. However, when word got out about what was happening, that showing was — you guessed it — cancelled.

Late last year Mr. Hansen released his final version of the movie. You’ll see quite a few familiar faces among those interviewed for the film — Bill Warner, Jim Hoft (of Gateway Pundit), and Diana West, among others. My favorite parts were his interviews with Antifa members and anarchists, and especially his trip to the southern border to talk to border patrol agents and see for himself the sorry state of our border security.

Here’s what he said about his movie in his press release:

Allow me to introduce myself: I’m Michael Hansen.

I just put out a movie called “Killing Free Speech”. It’s about the Left’s attempt to control the narrative through an all-out assault on free speech. Its operatives range from Antifa in the streets to politicians in the upper echelons of the Democrat Party.

One consequence of this process manifests itself in what is happening at the border, and, more importantly, the false narrative being pushed by the Left about the border issue.

In my movie I accompany the border patrol on location and let the facts speak for themselves.

The border patrol union liked the movie so much that the San Diego chapter arranged a screening for its agents and those of other law enforcement agencies. They also wanted to set up additional screenings for local chapters of the border patrol union in Texas.

However, after the media heard about the event, these were the headlines…

Now as to their claims of white nationalist… I’m not sure if they are referring to this guy this guy or that guy.

…It is completely fake news — in the articles they never actually identify who these alleged “white nationalists” are.

Other than proving the movie right about the fake news media, why did these “journalists” do it?

Because they wanted to shut down a movie that actually gives the border patrol a voice about the realities at the border.

Sadly enough, the media articles accomplished their intended purpose. The national border patrol was put under so much pressure that any additional screenings were taken off the table. Thus, for the time being, the media have been able to silence the border patrol.

Which brings us to the government shutdown and the border wall.

Why is the Democrat Party so dead set against the border wall that they are willing to shut down the government?

In my movie, border patrol agents demonstrate that a border wall will work.

Because of this, I have decided release my movie to the public for free viewing until we get the wall.

Now, making movies isn’t cheap, and I am not Michael Moore with millions of dollars of Soros funding. I did this all by myself, so please make a donation. Your contribution will allow me to make another movie for the 2020 election.

Thank you.

Given the current dire condition of political discourse in the USA, Michael Hansen has decided to make Killing Free Speech available for free viewing on YouTube. I highly recommend watching the entire documentary:

Mr. Hansen also wrote an article for Jihad Watch about the attempts to suppress his movie:

A New, Improved Minstrel Show in Virginia

I must admit I was disappointed when Dr. Ralph Northam (D) was elected governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia. After he won the election in 2017 I mostly averted my face from the goings-on in Richmond — it just wasn’t interesting enough to watch.

Then last month he voiced his support for a bill that would legalize abortion in Virginia up to and beyond the point of childbirth. Now, that got my attention.

But yesterday he really rose in my approval when it emerged that his yearbook page from med school contained a photo of a man in blackface next to another man in a Klan outfit. And later in the day it was revealed that his nickname as an undergrad was “Coonman” — that’s when my regard for him was heightened even further. I mean, how could you NOT love a guy named Coonman?

Then today my esteem for Dr. Northam reached stratospheric levels. It seems he woke up this morning and said to himself, “I’ll check my memory and I’ll check it quick, yes I will.” His enhanced recollection of the yearbook photo informed him that neither the cove in blackface nor the Klan guy was in fact he. However, in the interest of full disclosure, he allowed as to how that many years ago he had darkened his face to play the part of Michael Jackson in a theatrical production of some sort.

That’s when I decided that I wanted Ralph Northam to remain the governor of our sovereign commonwealth in perpetuity. Virginia needs a man like him at the helm.

In honor of the occasion, I’ve put together this meme pic:

I hope Coonman resists the calls (by both Democrats and Republicans) to resign, and toughs it out for the whole four years. Then after that he can follow the usual career path to the U.S. Senate. And from there, who knows? He could very well be presidential material…

If you want to see the now-famous yearbook photo of Rastus and the Grand Kleagle, visit virtually any MSM site; it’s the hottest story of the day. This CBS article, for example.

A Greater Wreck Than the Hesperus

JLH has torqued a well-known poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow to produce this synecdoche for current events in the squalid politics of Washington D.C.

Update: JLH’s stanza on typhus has been added.

A Greater Wreck Than the Hesperus

by JLH
(with apologies to Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)

It was the Speaker, Nancy,
Who cruised the House’s aisles,
With lies upon her lips,
All covered up with smiles.

She’d gone from strength to strength,
Buoyed up by voter fraud.
Her funny little ways
Becoming downright odd.

Her city awash in culture,
And feces in its streets,
The rich and poor estranged,
And ne’er the twain should meet.

Yet meet they may, and very soon,
In ERs everywhere
For governing rats bring typhus rats,
Just to keep things fair.

The massive camps of homeless
Lined up on heating grates
Were, by themselves, not quite enough
To expand the electorate.

So though she’d already voted yea,
Had had no objection at all,
She prepared now to leave her body behind
To block the hated Wall.

It wasn’t only the votes, my dears,
But the principle of the thing.
And the principle in this case
Was giving The Donald a ding.

“What’s good for Chuck and Nancy
Is good for the country too.
Forget what you think we told you once;
Just believe what we tell you to.”

Then up spoke an old representative,
With the experience of many years.
The Wall was perhaps not so much to hate
As other things were to fear.

Salvini: Crazy Like a Fox – Or an Italian

This is why I got a Matteo Salvini t-shirt for the Baron for Christmas:

What is the Italian equivalent for “joie de vivre”?? Salvini has it. His cup is full and running over.

Dr. Turley’s assessment of other leaders’ risks is spot on. TPTB don’t like populists. But regular folks do indeed like the way things are going in countries that don’t want to surrender to the EU machine.

A Potpourri of Political Insanity

One of the symptoms of Trump Derangement Syndrome is the staging of grotesque anti-MAGA theatrical productions on Broadway and in other urban enclaves of Progressives in the United States.

Based on the following article, a similar process is underway in Germany concerning the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany). This is a review from the Swiss Daily Neue Zürcher Zeitung of an anti-AfD production that recently opened in Dresden. Many thanks to JLH for the translation:

Theater Against the AfD: At Them With a Roar

Premiere in the Dresden State Theater of “A Nasty Surprise.”
A grotesque aimed at the AfD. And unfortunately also at the audience.

by Daniel Haas
January 28, 2019

This piece is played with a megaphone. Although there is actually no megaphone. But that is the acoustic effect. Bellowing, ranting, wailing, all at maximum volume. The idea appears to be: When the circumstances are jarring, protest must be even more jarring.

Premiere of “A Nasty Surprise” at the Dresden State Theater. Full house. Tension. It is a grotesque aimed at the AfD and beyond, at the new rightists and the zeal of their identity politics. The director and PR team had reckoned with disruptions. It wouldn’t be the first time AfD followers disturbed a premiere.

But nothing happens. No uproar, no scandal. And you would have to say that interrupting shouts or other disturbances would have disappeared in the general tumult. “A Nasty Surprise” — staged by Volker Lösch — drowns itself out. Whatever there is of extreme political attitudes in Germany, “A Nasty Surprise” scrambles them into a potpourri of political insanity.

Höcke, Gauland, Poggenburg

Eight of those somehow left behind by history, the losers in the Wende, victims of Treuhand,[1] fans of conspiracy theories and concepts of ethnic/national renewal move the action. Together, they set sail in an iron steamboat. The ideational compass is the “bluebook”—a collection of quotations from rightist-nationalist popular songs.

Höcke, Gauland, Poggenburg. Anyone who has uttered scandalous opinions is given voice. “Political Correctness lies like a blight on the land,” is quoted from “Preacher Höcke”, and that is the salvation utopia for this traveling band. That you can escape the left-liberal mainstream if you hew closely enough to the commandments of radicalization.

At some point the thing gets out of hand. The veneer of German brotherhood develops cracks. The ship’s company dissolves into rich and poor. The sausage and sauerkraut diet weakens both body and soul. Paranoia spreads, driven by a cadre of informers. Ultimately, common cause is made with representatives of the Islamic State. Swinging their machetes, they have boarded the boat. After a skirmish, however, they prove to be ideologically compatible. The finale shows them all steering for a landing in the Saxon legislature among shouts of “Heil Allah.”

Saxony, like Thuringia and Brandenburg, is attuned for the elections. The legislative election takes place on the first of September. The latest polls predict that the SPD/CDU coalition will lose its majority. The AfD meanwhile is at 25%. The fear of a coalition of CDU and AfD expressed by democratic spirits at the State Theater is understandable, but ultimately senseless. A blue-black coalition is now off the table, since National Intelligence has made the AfD a surveillance test case.
