A Tale of Two Opinions

Europeans are of two minds.

One of those minds is a small one, shared by relatively few people — European commissioners, most members of the European Parliament, the leaders and members of establishment parties in the member states, elite academics, and media apparatchiks.

The second mind is the one shared by ordinary European citizens.

The first mind is of the opinion that Islam belongs in Europe: “Everyone knows that!”

The second mind believes that Islam has never belonged in Europe, does not belong there now, and never will belong there.

The first opinion is well-represented by Frans Timmermans. Mr. Timmermans is currently serving as first vice president of the European Commission, and is in line to succeed Jean-Claude Juncker as the next president of the European Commission. That is, if the new “populist” European Parliament doesn’t withhold its support for him; we’ll know after this week’s elections. The European Commission doesn’t answer to the European Parliament, or any other body but itself, but it might be reluctant to seat a new president who had already been given a vote of no confidence by its alleged “parliament”.

Anyway, here’s what Mr. Timmermans had to say about Islam in Europe. Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

In contrast, the video below highlights the results of a phone-in poll in Germany. More than 95% of the callers said: “No, Islam does NOT belong in Europe.”

Mind you, this was a self-selected sample — people who watched a certain TV program and decided to call in. But it’s still significant. And I doubt the citizens of France, Britain, Denmark, or Italy are any less “Islamophobic” than the Germans.

Once again, Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Frans Timmermans is Dutch. Maybe the Dutch are more tolerant and understanding than the Germans. Maybe they, unlike the ignorant and unwashed of the European hinterlands, are aware of Islam’s rich place in European history, which it has held since 600 years prior to the time it was founded.

Red-Pilled by the Bataclan

In the following excerpt from a roundtable discussion on French TV, a woman explains how the terrorist attack at the Bataclan restaurant in 2015 made her understand the danger that Islam poses to Western Civilization. She lived in the same building that housed the administrative offices of the Bataclan, and she knew one of the victims who was killed.

At the end of the clip she addresses a question to Daniel “Danny the Red” Cohn-Bendit, the notorious Green/Communist politician and pedophile, but we never get to hear his answer. I also noticed that Eric Zemmour was among those listening to her story.

An Interview With Rasmus Paludan

Rasmus Paludan is a Danish lawyer and anti-Islam activist who is currently running for parliament. His party, Stram Kurz (Hard Line), is currently polling well enough to make it likely that he will be sitting in Folketinget this time next month — although, as Vlad mentions in the interview, he will almost certainly be excluded from any possible coalition by the cordon sanitaire that always draws around Islam-critical parties in Europe. It has happened to the PVV, Sverigedemokraterna (the Sweden Democrats), Vlaams Belang, the AfD, and all the other “right-wing extremist” parties.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for conducting the interview and uploading the video:

A Syrian in Germany Confounds the Narrative on the “Civil War” in Syria

The following video features the remarks by a Syrian-German named Manaf Hassan. Mr. Hassan’s parents were actual refugees, not like the “Syrian” “refugees” that are currently flooding the country.

His talk was a part of a symposium hosted by the Greens (Bündnis 90/Die Grünen) on May 15 entitled Die Zukunft Syriens — Perspektiven eines zerstörten Landes, “The future of Syria — Perspectives of a ruined country”. As far as I can tell, the video of the full event is here, but I didn’t have the patience to watch the whole thing in order to determine whether Mr. Hassan’s remarks were actually included in the footage.

The Greens had gathered to weep over the puir wee bairns and other victims of the war in Syria, and to condemn the evil actions of the dictator Bashar al-Assad. They were plainly agitated and discomfited by what Manaf Hassan had to say, since he veered off the Narrative and said any number of things that are not permitted to be spoken in public.

Send ’Em Back!

In the following series of street interviews, Dutch citizens in ter Apel are asked their opinion about a new poster that advocates putting migrants on a bus back to wherever they came from. Midway through the clip, a group of culture-enrichers shows up to harass and threaten the reporter and the cameraman.

The translator includes this note:

At 1:50 two of them show up, swear and try to attack the cameraman. They speak German. I assume they stayed in Germany for a longer period and were rejected, so now they’re trying their luck in the Netherlands.

Random Acts of Madness

The EU parliamentary elections are coming up shortly, so the German establishment is busy finding right-wing extremists under the bed — even if it has to roll out the bed and put them there itself.

Stuff Happens

Satirical Week in Review by Hans Heckel
May 4, 2019

Why confidential information is again filtering out of National Security, everywhere where danger is lurking, and why you too are an extreme rightist

Shocking reports come to us just in time for the approaching EU elections. One is about the increasing danger from right extremist “dangerous persons.” The second is about the increasing danger from the populace. According to the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV), a growing danger is coming from right extremists. That is according to a “confidential analysis” by that office made available to the Welt am Sonntag. Since Thomas Haldenweg took over from Hans-Georg Maaßen as head of the secret service, internal matters have been, accidentally of course, dribbling into the public arena, if they are of some political use.

Last summer, when the leading parties needed something to use against the AfD[1] after a demonstration in Chemnitz, one spook misplaced the definition of “Alternative” as a “Test Case” directly into the hands of journalists. Indeed, such a classification as “test case” is confidential, but — oops! — something happened. And the EU elections are almost here — the ones in which the “right populists” could do very well. And, just in time, the next confidential information from the security forces lands on the desk of a Sunday gazette. Stuff happens!

What is in this analysis? We had hoped for fearful exposés, after hearing in connection with the Christchurch massacre of the existence of a “Fascist International” — a globally active, gigantic brown network. Instead, there are barely organized small groups and individuals. In other words, marginal individuals who drool at the sight of a Hitler picture, or dim-witted drinking buddies in attic rooms. BfV’s report must admit (in a whisper) that there is not much here. In elegant gobbledygook, it states that there were “gaps in planning and accomplishing.” In plain German, this means that these morons possibly had something evil in mind, but, luckily, didn’t have the brains to get it done. However it isn’t a good idea to be happy about this, because it doesn’t fit into the picture of a “growing danger.”

This danger can be demonstrated with hard facts. In January, by the BfV’s count, there were 31 “dangerous persons.” Two years ago, there were only 22. That is counting the types from the group “Revolution Chemnitz,” named in the exposé in Welt am Sonntag.

We were already terrified by these people months ago. They tried to inspect the IDs of people on Chemnitz’s Schlossteichinsel[2] and later went after a group of Germans and foreigners with glass bottles, quartz-sand gloves[3] and a cattle prod. The media were electrified, saying that the Chemnitzers were planning no less than upending the democratic system.

The ringleader was apprehended on the same day. A search of the revolutionary’s premises disclosed, to be sure, neither explosives nor firearms, but instead an air rifle and a billy club. Certainly a closer search would have uncovered one of those notorious blank-shooting guns, which — after a shot from middle distance (in the case of this weapon, ca. 3 to 6 centimeters) — can cause a hematoma the size of a freckle, which the victim could carry for life. Or at least for his next three days of life.

How an attack on the Schlossteichinsel was expected to incite a coup is a mystery. Connoisseurs of the affair presumed the attack was simply a trial run for the great putsch. How may we think about that? Did the Chemnitz “revolutionaries” intend to capsize the island as a “test run” for the overthrow of the “media dictatorship and their slaves” as their internet tirades called those in power in the land?

At any rate, the group is said to have tried to acquire semi-automatic weapons, but that failed — “gaps between planning and accomplishment,” you see. And meanwhile, eight of the group are sitting in jail.

The Studio Audience Loves to Hear About Death Threats Against the AfD

We’ve reported in the past (most recently here) on the case of Frank Magnitz, the leader of the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany) in Bremen. Back in January Mr. Magnitz was brutally attacked and received a severe head wound, presumably at the hands of local antifas.

The following video shows an excerpt from a recent TV appearance by Mr. Magnitz. As one would expect, the moderator and panelists are unabashedly hostile and contemptuous of the AfD leader, but you’ll also notice that the studio audience claps and cheers at the mention of death threats against Mr. Magnitz and the owner of the venue who had to cancel AfD events.

Ha! Nazi, Schmazi!

Rasmus Paludan is a Danish lawyer and anti-Islam activist who is almost certain to become a member of parliament after next month’s general election.

In the following excerpt from a TV panel discussion, a retired politician named Mimi Jakobsen — who was Minister of Culture for the Centre Democrats back in the 1980s — likens Mr. Paludan to a Nazi. In the ensuing argument, he flings the same insult back at her. Before the program is over, she hints that she’s planning on suing him for his impertinence.

Trump: Viktor Orbán Has Done the Right Thing on Immigration

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán met with President Donald Trump in the White House on Monday. The president held a brief photo op and press conference during Mr. Orbán’s visit, at which the prime minister was able to say a few words. After that the reporters predictably peppered the president with questions about the issues du jour — notably the “trade war” with China.

However, someone has kindly created an excerpt from that presser focusing on Viktor Orbán’s remarks and President Trump’s response. Note the assumption by the “journalists” that Hungary is not a democratic country, and requires “reform”:

Hat tip: László.

Integration Isn’t Working, Time to Go!

In the following video, Rasmus Paludan leads his colleagues in a little song while they burn a Koran. Mr. Paludan is a Danish lawyer, anti-Islam activist, and the founder of the Stram Kurs party, which is expected to earn enough votes to win seats in parliament next month.

The Quebec Legislature Debates Bill 21

A law (Bill 21) proposed by Quebec Premier François Legault would restrict the wearing of religious symbols by public employees. Among the symbols to be prohibited is the hijab, which has predictably caused a fierce controversy about Bill 21.

The video below shows excerpts from a hearing in the Quebec legislature about Bill 21. It features retired Senator Céline Hervieux-Payette, who angered the Gutmenschen by linking the Islamic veil with female genital mutilation, forced marriage, and honor killing.
