Corona Rules

The extent to which the Wuhan Coronavirus has degraded and deformed civil society is hard to comprehend because we’re still in the middle of it. The magnitude of the damage may not become evident for a generation or two, when our descendants look back in horror on what we have inflicted on ourselves (and them).

The three videos below deal with various aspects of the response to the COVID-19 crisis. The first is a report on a young student in Italy who was effectively carted off to the loony bin for refusing to wear a mask in school.

The second video shows the devastation of the living circumstances of an elderly woman (either 87 or 97 years old; it’s not clear) in a nursing home in Switzerland, all in the name of keeping her “safe”.

The final video reports on a new wave of coronavirus infections in France among those who have been vaccinated against the disease.

I’ve read theoretical explanations by immunologists about why this occurs. The prevailing “vaccines” use messenger RNA to cause the body’s cells to generate the “spike protein” contained in the Wuhan Coronavirus. This prompts the immune system to develop antibodies that react to the spike protein, so when the virus enters the body the antibodies attack it.

The vaccine contains no nucleotides, so it does not induce the body to produce T-cells, which supply long-term immunity to the disease. People who contract COVID-19 under natural circumstances develop T-cells in response, which give them long-lasting resistance to the disease. In contrast, antibodies produced as a result of the mRNA “vaccine” are only present in the bloodstream for a limited time, leaving the vaccinated vulnerable to the disease later on.

At least that’s my understanding of the process. Readers who are more knowledgeable about immunology may want to correct my summary.

We Can’t Throw the Rascals Out

It has now been one hundred days since the Investiture of the Puppet, and the political junkies have moved out of the “honeymoon” phase and into the early run-up to the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential contest. Republican stalwarts are plotting strategy for retaking the House and/or Senate. The intertubes are abuzz with speculation about whether Trump will run again, or whom he might pick as his running mate, or whom he might endorse if he decides not to run. Pundits and punditesses are tracking and analyzing Joe Biden’s every mumbled utterance and Kamala Harris’ every raucous guffaw. Cartoonists and meme artists are in a frenzy of mockery, given that they have so much ludicrosity and buffoonery at hand to work with.

But, really, what’s the point?

To all appearances everything in the political world is business as usual. As if nothing out of the ordinary happened in the wee hours of November 4, 2020. As if millions of votes weren’t created out of thin air — call it “fiat voting” — by the party that runs the permanent government and operates in symbiosis with the media and Big Tech. As if the same scoundrels aren’t in control of how the votes will be counted next time. As if they aren’t plotting even greater control (see H.R. 1, the “For the People Act”).

Even Donald Trump seems to subscribe to the widespread illusion, and is looking forward to trying again in 2024. Doesn’t he realize why he lost to an unappealing apparatchik afflicted with senile dementia? Why does he think the result will be any different when he has to run against Kamala?

I enjoy reading the punditry of mainstream Republican partisans, who post witty and entertaining observations about all the bizarre political goings-on in Washington D.C., or on the Left Coast, or in the lofty empyrean of the ivory towers of Woke Academia. But I don’t confuse any of it with reality. The sound and fury of D.C. bears no more relation to real life than do The West Wing or The Simpsons. Paying attention to all that political theater is just a way of passing time until Ragnarøk finally arrives in full force.

I must admit, however, that I find it difficult to put aside my ingrained habits of thinking. Whenever some particularly grotesque Progressive policy is implemented by city, state, or federal lawmakers, my customary response is: “Well, those people got what they voted for.”

It’s hard to remember that they may not actually have voted for it. It’s quite possible, especially at the federal level, that key office-holders who shepherd the enactment of all this egregious wokeness were not the choice of a majority of voters in their particular constituencies. Democrats and RINOs have now perfected the process of controlling who gets elected. From now on there will be no legislative majorities that do not support the preferred policies of the Powers That Be.

When I stop being enthralled by the baroque theatrical production inside the Beltway, and think about what’s really happening, it’s quite depressing. That’s when I wish I could take the blue pill and re-enter the Matrix. Alas, I haven’t yet figured out how to do that.

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

The Democrats now have better control over how the votes are counted than Stalin could ever have dreamed of. And, unlike Uncle Joe, they don’t have to order anybody shot to make sure of the outcome. Or not as many of them, anyway. Just a few unfortunate suicides and car accidents here and there.

There are three major factors that have enabled their iron grip on the election process:

Swedish Pre-School Funneled Money to the Muslim Brotherhood

Och, the puir wee bairns! Taking their lunch money and sending it to the jihad…

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

More than half a million went from pre-school to Islamic association — Married pair convicted for bookkeeping crime.

ANGERED — Over half a million kronor were transferred during 2018 and 2019 from the tax-financed pre-school Lär & Lek in Gothenburg to an Islamist organization. Now a married pair has been convicted for book-keeping violations. The preschool had previously had its license revoked on grounds of connections to the School of Science, which was closed after allowing returning ISIS-terrorists to teach children.

Over half a million kronor were transferred from the pre-school Lär & Lek in Gothenburg to a sports association and then on to the Islamist organization, Sweden’s United Muslims. Now the married pair, Wasim El-Jomaa, and Eva Freih, have been convicted of bookkeeping offenses, reports GT.

During the period 2018-2019, 545,000 kronor were transferred from the pre-school to the Andalus IF sports association and then on to the association Sweden’s United Muslims.

The transfers from the pre-school began shortly after contributions to Sweden’s United Muslims were restricted by both the Authority for Youth and Civil Society Affairs, MUCF, and the city of Gothenburg.

In its decision MUCF referred to statements made by preacher Muadh Zamzam in a lecture at the association that girls who did not cover themselves from the age of 12 would end up in Hell, which the foundation Doku earlier reported.

This was due to the connections to the School of Science, where returning IS-terrorists worked as teachers and managed multi-million kronor amounts from the operations to bank accounts in Saudi Arabia and Malta.

El-Jomaa: “We have done nothing illegal here”

El-Jomaa stands behind the three accounts which have been involved in transfers and has said in interrogation that it is a sponsorship of the sports association’s activity. He has earlier told GT that he and his wife have done nothing illegal.

“For me, it is a matter of right or wrong. If this is legal or illegal. We have done nothing illegal here, so we have no further comment here,” said Wasid el-Jomaa.

Eva Freih didn’t want to comment on the indictment to GT, and she referred to her lawyer, Allan Stutzinsky. He called it “amazing” that the couple are charged with a felony.

“Eva has no problem asserting that she was representative of the pre-school company, and that for sure, the running accounts were delayed, and something was lagging behind. But the bookkeeping is completely correct,” said Stutzinsky.

Winchester Gets a Statue of St. Greta

A life-sized likeness of the Swedish climate-rescue maiden Greta Thunberg is coming to the University of Winchester in England. Despite severe economic hardship, a bronze simulacrum of Greta the Great that cost about $31,000 (£24,000) will be erected in front of the “climate-smart” West Downs Centre at the University. The TV report below from Sweden tells the story.

Klaus Kinzler, Racist and Islamophobe

Klaus Kinzler is a German professor who has been teaching for 25 years at “Sciences Po” in the French city of Grenoble. A couple of weeks ago he and another teacher were called “fascists” and accused of “Islamophobia” by posters that were put up anonymously on campus. Among other things, the posters said “Islamophobia kills”, which was seen as a potential threat. Since then the Minister of the Interior has put Prof. Kinzler under protection.

The earliest news stories did not mention the names of the targeted professors, but Klaus Kinzler has since gone public on the issue. The following video was originally two separate clips taken from a TV talk show featuring Prof. Kinzler.

The Cancelling of Dr. Seuss

When I was about nine years old I liked to read the Hardy Boys mystery books. The first in the series was published in the late 1920s, and the publisher continued putting out titles until long after I was grown up.

In the late 1950s, as the cultural trend now known as political correctness was just getting started, the publishers ordered a rewrite of the older Hardy Boys books. To be fair, it was only partially for PC reasons. Yes, it’s true that the books’ depictions of negroes in the ’20s and ’30s tended towards the “sho nuff” and “dat sure am good” sort of stereotypes. But there were also rumble seats and roadsters and other dated cultural artifacts that had to be revised in order to make sense to the boomer generation. Needless to say, the new versions were less interesting than the originals. Boys like me held onto their ragged old copies rather than buy the new ones, and fortunately my school library had a lot of the old ones — that was in the days before libraries purged their collections for politically correct reasons.

My favorite books, however, were those by the immortal Dr. Seuss. His early works — before about 1957 — were (and are) timelessly superb. My mother thoughtfully preserved my Dr. Seuss collection, so that when the future Baron came along, I only had to acquire the newer books (some of them — a lot of the later ones are not at all interesting). Reading the old books to him when he was little reminded me of how wonderful they were.

About two-thirds of our combined Dr. Seuss collection here in Schloss Bodissey consists of my old books, most of them worn and tattered and taped together after being well-loved by two generations of kids. Some of the titles from the mid to late ’50s came from the first printing.

Considering what can be found in those old books, it was obvious that Dr. Seuss would someday have to be cancelled. When I saw the list of six titles that were withdrawn from publication a few days ago, I realized that I had four of them on the bookshelf right here in the Eyrie — McElligot’s Pool, If I Ran the Zoo, Scrambled Eggs Super, and On Beyond Zebra. According to various news stories, they are now available on Amazon only as “used” or “collectible”, with prices ranging from about $100 to as much as $2,500. If I wanted to cash out, I could make a fair amount of money on them. But it’s not worth it — I’d rather have the books.

Out of curiosity, I went through those four titles to see what racial heresies they contained to earn the ire of the Woke mob. If I Ran the Zoo was the most obvious — the image at the top of this post is taken from it. Those native bearers are undeniably sambos, and we can’t have that, now, can we?

In addition there was this one:

Yep, they’re definitely slants. Now, maybe if he had dressed them in business suits like real Chinese he could have skated by. Better yet, to make it realistic, he could have had the Chinese businessmen riding on top of the cage while the American boy carried it.

And then there’s the sheikh from the Desert of Zind. I’m not sure if he counts as a racial stereotype, but he kind of looks like an Arab, and he’s riding something that looks vaguely like a camel.

The sheikh clearly needs to be cancelled, too.

I couldn’t remember anything racist from McElligot’s Pool, so I paged through it trying to find the offending image. Sure enough, there was this:

Not only does the fellow at the top live in an igloo (with a stovepipe, no less), but the fish with the little furry parkas are Eskimo fish. Oh, the humanity!

It was much harder to discern why On Beyond Zebra had roused the wrath of the Wokistas. The only possible candidate I could see was the Nazzim of Bazzim:

Didier Lemaire: “The Republic Has Failed in Trappes”

Didier Lemaire is a teacher of philosophy in the French city of Trappes. Mr. Lemaire responded to the beheading of the teacher Samuel Paty by writing an open letter to his fellow teachers decrying the Islamization of his school, his city, and the whole of France. As a result, he now has to have a police escort when traveling to and from school.

It’s worth noting that Didier Lemaire identifies himself as “center-left”. Secularism (laïcité) in France is a progressive institution. Therefore, Islamization — which attacks and undermines laïcité — should be widely denounced by the Left. Generally speaking, however, this isn’t the case. Mr. Lemaire is a courageous exception to that rule.

The following interview with Didier Lemaire was conducted on a talk show on Sud Radio. Many thanks to Oz-Rita for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Below is the open letter from Didier Lemaire, as published by L’Obs:

On the eve of a new school year, grieving the death of Samuel Paty, Didier Lemaire, professor of philosophy at Trappes (Yvelines), calls for resistance in the face of the Islamist threat.

by Didier Lemaire
November 01, 2020

Didier Lemaire has been a professor of philosophy at Trappes for twenty years. As early as 2018, with Jean-Pierre Obin, Inspector of National Education and the author of a report on the attacks on secularism at school, he wrote a letter to the President of the Republic asking him to act urgently to protect his students from the ideological and social pressure exerted on them.

Today, he asks himself how teachers could compensate for the absence of a state strategy to defeat Islamism.

Dear fellow teachers,

A teacher, our colleague, died simply for teaching the principles that are the foundation of our republic and our history: freedom of thought and its corollary, freedom of expression.

Through him, these assassins targeted all the teachers who every day pass on this part of themselves that others have also passed on to them. This part which is the best part of ourselves because it makes us unique beings open to all other human beings.

Thought, freed from the fear of authority, ignorance, obscurantism, illusion and imprisonment in certainty, is indeed the most personal part of ourselves, because first of all it depends on us to build our judgment. In a society where we must think like others, without having the right to doubt and dialogue, no one can become himself.

But becoming a free individual is only possible under two conditions: a state based on the rule of law that prevents any community from confiscating the individual’s freedom by imposing a way of being and thinking, and a school that prepares every man to become a citizen by transmitting a humanistic, scientific, artistic and philosophical culture.

Yet the first of these conditions no longer exists in many neighborhoods. As a philosophy professor at Trappes for the past twenty years, I have witnessed the progression of an ever-stronger communitarian hold on consciences and bodies.

The year I arrived at the high school, the synagogue in Trappes was in flames and Jewish families were forced to leave. After the killings of 2015 and 2016, I became involved in preventive actions, notably through theater and meetings with historians and sociologists specializing in manipulation.

Noting that my efforts were coming up against forces beyond my control, in 2018, together with Jean-Pierre Obin I wrote to the President of the Republic to ask him to act urgently to protect our students from the ideological and social pressures exerted on them, pressures that were gradually cutting them off from the national community. Unfortunately, no effective action was taken to curb this phenomenon.

There are currently 400 S-file “radicalization” subjects in Trappes, who are freely roaming around, not counting the terrorism files. And our students live in a schizophrenic situation where the conflict of loyalties becomes unavoidable for them.

So Here There Be Dragons! (Part IV)

So Here There Be Dragons!

by Seneca III

Part IV — Lacunae

This part of the series is a short list, with commentary, of some factors contributing to the moral, cultural and political dilemmas we face today, i.e. those either not covered in the preceding parts in detail, not at all or at best only alluded to. A Summaries and an Afterword follow in Parts VA and VB.

“Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.”
— William Pitt the Younger — Speech in the House of Commons (18 November, 1783).

“The tyrant’s plea, / excus’d his devilish deeds”
— John Milton — Paradise Lost, Book iv, line 393.

1. Language — its function and evolution

Language uniquely separates us from the rest of the animal kingdom. It enables us to organise and cooperate in complicated ways, to clearly communicate ideas (even abstract ones), emotions, intentions, and much else. It is not a sessile but a motile, dynamic construct constantly being expanded by the introduction of neologisms and also contracted through words and definitions, ‘archaisms’, falling into disuse. Language allows and inspires us to jointly explore and mutually contemplate ourselves and the world and universe around us in a variety of ways practical, philosophical and metaphysical. In competent, successful speaking or writing, language and thought are contiguous, and the words chosen offer us an immediate presentation of some aspect of reality.

Yet, we simply don’t know how language originated. We do know that the ability to produce sound and simple vocal patterning (a hum versus a grunt, for example) appears to be in an ancient part of the brain that we share with all vertebrates, including fish, frogs, birds and other mammals. But that isn’t human language. It is suspected that some type of spoken language must have developed between 100,000 and 50,000 years ago, well before written language (about 5,000 years ago). Yet, among the traces of earlier periods of life on Earth, we never find any direct evidence or artefacts relating to the speech of our distant ancestors. Perhaps because of this absence of direct physical evidence, there has been no shortage of speculation about the origins of human speech. An understanding of how and why human languages developed is a rich field. Darwin was of the opinion that:

“Music, rhythms, frogs, birds, the nightly howling of canis simensis across the Ethiopian high plateau, the song of whales, communicate in ways limited to their immediate environment, establish but limited or for mating purposes, not that our ways in that circumstances are worthy or would stand well under scrutiny.”

2. The use and abuse of tone poetry and figurative language

Languages come in many variants and from different roots yet most are composed of nouns, verbs adjectives, etc. expressed through vowels and consonants. One exception is the ‘click languages’ of Africa, a group of languages in which clicks function as normal consonants. The sole example of a language using clicks outside of Africa is that of ‘Damin’, a ritual vocabulary of the Lardil tribe of northern Queensland, Australia.

In written language punctuation primarily serves to create sense, clarity and stress in sentences, to indicate pauses in the flow and to emphasise or explain certain ideas or thoughts through words, facts and phrases that are presented in the text, thus structuring and organising the written word. If punctuation is missing, as in the [paragraph] below, and as it is in many legal documents, or in what passes for modern journalism, then the use of emphasis, obfuscation, opinions, conflation, relevance and disambiguation can lead to different or preferential interpretations thus, permitting a situation where to precisely define what is true and what is not is difficult or near impossible.

[In written language punctuation primarily serves to create sense clarity and stress in sentences to indicate pauses in the flow and to emphasise or explain certain ideas or thoughts through words facts and phrases that are presented in the text thus structuring and organising the written word If punctuation is missing as in the paragraph below and as it is in many legal documents or in what passes for modern journalism then the use of emphasis obfuscation opinions conflation relevance and disambiguation can lead to different or preferential interpretations thus permitting a situation where to precisely define what is true and what is not is difficult or near impossible.]

However, oratory and rhetoric, which are essentially verbal streams of consciousness used to educate, motivate, deceive or misinform are slightly different, whereby emphasis or the lack of it, pauses, tautologies, gesticulations and responses to audience responses can and often do project and affirm falsehoods favouring the position supported or being proposed by the orator. Skilful lawyers can and do utilise such techniques during the course of a trial and when making closing statements to juries; politicians, particularly on the hustings when trying to con the electorate, do the same, which is why so many of them manage to slither into Parliament in the first place. Media audio-visual presenters do this as well, and they are pretty good at it. Instead of actually addressing the argument itself they focus on a rhetorical flourish that you may consider overly dramatic, inappropriate or irrelevant then, if you question this, they imply that your emotional response invalidates your case. That is tone poetry.

So Here There Be Dragons!

The essay below is the first in a new series by our English correspondent Seneca III.

So Here There Be Dragons!

by Seneca III

Part I — Prologue

How will the year 2020 be recorded in far distant future histories[1]? Will those historians who deeply ponder and then write the annals of the 21st century look back at how that year became the year of a defining nativity, of a bright new age, or will they record it as the final, fatal step towards an irreversible descent into darkness and decrepitude… into the once mythical world of Ragnarök?

    1.   In the study of History the key concepts are sources, evidence, continuity and change, cause and effect, significance, perspectives, empathy and contestability. They are integral to the development of historical understanding, and yet most if not all can fall into the trap of either subjective or objective examination where in fact the reverse is often more appropriate. The concepts ‘perspectives’ and ‘empathy’ are particularly prone to falling into that trap.
 

So, who will they be, then, these future humans poring over ancient texts, and what form, physical or otherwise, will those texts take — printed on paper or metal foil, carved in stone or pressed into baked clay, read electronically or from depositories full of entangled qubits? And will these historians be the descendants of the victors or the losers of the great battle now roiling about us? Or, perhaps, will their antecedents be so disconnected and totally different from who and what we are? If so, will this give them the ability to come to impartial conclusions untainted by the prejudices of lineage?

Possibly so, but unfortunately we will never know, because their methodology and conclusions lie in our far future. Indeed, our own immediate past is difficult enough to discern clearly, because the window through which we now peer has been opaqued and distorted into an increasingly narrow slit full of indeterminate images rendered meaningless by the ideological interpretations emanating from the fevered pens of revisionist historians whose scribblings are but ‘Woke’ opinion presented in the form of an emotive, multi-hued gospel which is being distributed throughout Academia to a generation of gullible children whose minds will be forever stunted.

So, if we are to shape our own history, we must at first understand the present as we live through it, and try to understand why so many people are desperate to alter it in ways oppressive and indisputably evil. Classical culture, the ability to experience and appreciate beauty, quiet civility and the faculty to experience and to understand the bonds between man and society have been subsumed by a loss of the art of conversation, by casual and outrageous incivility, and then exacerbated by mass deviation from biological norms and human decency[2]. Traditions and ancient humanist ideals have been abraded by inimical doctrines promulgated by the morally and intellectually destitute, and now lie in ruins as our economic and political systems mutate into unworkable Frankenstein monsters.

    2.   As I write this I notice that Google is “Honouring Transgender Awareness Week”, and the Bank of England “…have lit up our Threadneedle Street building in blue, pink and white in support of Transgender Awareness Week. We want to raise the visibility of and celebrate transgender people everywhere.”

How puerile, how pointless and how degenerate is that of the Old Lady? John Stewart Mill’s classic political treatise ‘On Liberty’ warned not just against tyranny by government but also about “social tyranny”, a situation whereby we are told what it is socially acceptable to think, do, and say. This first makes us do and say things that are illogical and contrary to our established norms, and then, over a period of time, they make us say and do things without thinking about them, and finally they progress to making us do and say things that before our indoctrination would be totally unthinkable!
 

And yet… and yet, despite all this, despite this steaming swamp of rampant speculation, opinion, inter-racial tension[3], downright lies and socio-cultural turbulence, there is one seminal question that hovers mostly unasked beyond our limited perspective, and is rarely if ever addressed in depth: “What if evolution is working quietly away out of sight and mind, that Homo sapiens sapiens, or some of its children, are in the process of undergoing a first major branching (a synthetic one) since an anthropoid ape lifted its knuckles out of the red African earth and walked upright? And are we thus now heading in a new evolutionary direction… and doing so relatively swiftly in terms of cosmological time?

The Coronavirus Makes Me Insane!

The following video (which is audio-only) was recorded surreptitiously in a German schoolroom. If this incident is representative of the emotional state of this particular teacher, she is likely to be facing severe stress-related medical disorders in the not-so-distant future.

Coronamadness is abroad in the land. It has infected a large proportion — possibly a majority — of the population in Western countries. That’s why I expect the vaccine to be made mandatory — when strong feelings are this prevalent among the electorate, it motivates politicians to enact repressive legislation that seems to solve the issue.

A Pedagogical Nightmare

Many thanks to Nash Montana for translating this article from the German tabloid B.Z. about a culture-enriching learning environment in Berlin:

“I’ll f*** your classbook!”

Teacher at a Berlin Hot-Spot School Talks Truth

With lots of enthusiasm in store, this teacher began her employment at one of Berlin’s hot-spot schools; the school has a 90% migrant ratio. She was convinced and she was certain that she could bring change to the place. But as a graduate in education she found herself extremely ill-prepared for the excruciatingly intolerable truth.

A permanent lack of teachers, ignorant parents, kids with extreme behavioral issues. “When a 9-year-old boy shows you the middle finger and says, ‘I’ll f*** your classbook’, what should I do then?” Katha Strofe (32, name changed*) asks.

Now Katha has written a book about her experiences: Leaks From the Teachers’ Lounge — My Year As a Teacher at the Elementary School of Horror. It was published on November 1, 2020 by Schwarzkopf & Schwarzkopf Press. She wrote the book under a pseudonym because: “I have to keep silent about the goings-on at the school — but my conscience tells me otherwise.”

Strofe passed her one-year teacher’s training with on-site security guards. Although she was originally hired to teach German in the Welcome Class for Refugees, she never even got there. “From the very beginning, I was used as a substitute teacher for all other subjects: Math, English, Art, even Sports, even though I wasn’t in the slightest qualified,” she says.

28 children were in her classes — many from problem families, half of them without any knowledge of the German language, and five special needs kids [Inklusionskinder] with no tutors.

A normal class according to the syllabus was simply not possible: “The few good students had it the hardest. While my attention was completely absorbed with putting out fires all the time, they stared holes into the air. In the fifth grade, I taught at the level of the second grade.”

Respect towards female teachers? Non-existent! “The kids, some of them from known large family clans, are miniature editions of their older brothers,” she says. “School was uncool, and when a kid had good grades, he got immediately trashed by the whole class.”

And further: “Homework gets done rarely. When I announce to them they should inform their parents about something, they laugh and say: ‘Why don’t you, if you can speak Chechen?’”

For parent-teacher conferences, only six mothers and fathers showed up. “They evade responsibility by telling the teachers, ‘You teacher, you do!’ And if they don’t like something, they cuss at us, and we get spat at.”

The stress at school has tough consequences: Katha Strofe developed insomnia; her sleep patterns were disturbed. She was full of fear and worry every time she showed up at school in the morning. And these weren’t isolated incidents! “30 to 40 percent of all teachers phoned in sick every single day,” she says. “I never knew which class I was supposed to teach that day. School didn’t make sense anymore. At some point all I did was copy mandalas so the students could color them in.”

Albertville (73): Four children, aged 10, detained for “justifying terrorism, complicity and death threats”. Turmoil in the Turkish community (Update: The government defends itself.)

by Sebastien de Lyon
November 7, 2020

The Ministry of the Interior reacted on Twitter to this police operation, denying that the officers had “used disproportionate force”. The incident, revealed by a Turkish press agency on Thursday, had provoked strong emotion on social media.

France 3 (News)

The detention Thursday in Albertville (Savoy) of four pupils of CM2 at their homes, suspected of justifying terrorism, has been denounced by members of the Turkish community on social media, leading the authorities to justify their action…

Courier Picard (News)

The prosecutor of Chambery confirms that 4 pupils have been “detained” as part of an open investigation for “justifying terrorism, complicity and death threats”, following threatening comments (during) tributes to Samuel Paty.

Contacted by CheckNews, the prosecutor of Chambery confirms that an investigation for “justifying terrorism, complicity, and death threats” has indeed been opened due to the acts that occurred as part of ceremonies of tribute to the teacher, Samuel Paty, in an elementary school in Albertville.

“Several children made troubling remarks,” justifying the act of the terrorist and threatening a teacher by telling him, “You too. We will kill you,” stated the prosecutor.

Each of the four children is aged 10, “about ten years,” they have not been placed in custody (possible at 13 years) but within the legal framework of a detention.

Dr. Bhakdi on the Dangers of Masks and the Risks of the COVID-19 Vaccine

Professor Doctor Sucharit Bhakdi is a German virologist and professor of microbiology. He is an ethnic Thai who was born in the USA and educated at schools in Switzerland, Egypt, and Thailand. He studied medicine at the University of Bonn. He is the former head of the Institute of Medical Microbiology and Hygiene in Germany.

Dr. Bhakdi is 73 years old, and says he will never allow himself to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

The Latest Coronanews From Germany

Germany has one of the most totalitarian COVID regimes in the world, possibly the most severe outside China (although Britain is also in the running).
