The Cultural Enrichment of German Cities and Towns

Miguel Klauß represents the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany) in the regional parliament for Baden-Württemberg. The following op-ed from PolitikStube was translated by Hellequin GB:

Miguel Klauß: Germans are being driven out of their own cities!

What was reported from Stuttgart last week can be taken as a blueprint for the whole of Germany: More and more, a neglected, migrant milieu of oriental, Arab and African-born, predominantly male youths are taking over the public space, creating an “unstable security situation” and making life hell for the remaining locals and ancestral natives — until the latter give up and move away.

For anyone who walks through Germany’s inner cities with open eyes — especially in the west, where the “Verbuntung” [colourfulness] and “diversity” are already well-advanced (and if they have been emptied due to Corona, then at the hookah bars, junk shops, Turkish supermarkets, kebab shops and falafel stalls and betting shops the traffic will be uninterrupted) — it will not be possible to overlook the “change” that Greens such as Katrin Göring-Eckardt were looking forward to years ago.

In Stuttgart this week the local press reported on increasing rabble and brawl on the Kleiner Schlossplatz. Last year, at the “kick-off event” of this new Swabian city tradition, including brutal attacks on police officers and looting by the “event and party scene”, most of the people of Stuttgart hopefully assumed it was an isolated case. But the problem has persisted. No wonder that countless Stuttgart residents agree with the business owners and landlords in complaining about their suffering — and calling on politicians to finally do something.

Of course, all of this has long ceased to be a Stuttgart problem — and is certainly not a temporary condition that could be remedied, in the way you could get rid of rioting punks, beggars and homeless people through regulatory measures in city centers thirty years ago. No, it is only the beginning of an inevitable demographic development that diffuses from the big cities into the medium-sized cities and from there into smaller and smaller units, until at some point the countryside is the last to be affected. We are experiencing creeping land-grabs by problem migrants with zero willingness to integrate — especially since there will soon be nothing more to integrate into, or the question will be who should adapt to whom.

In Berlin, Cologne, the Ruhrpott and Frankfurt-Krankfurt, too, the orientalization of inner cities is accompanied by increasing crime rates, loss of homeland, changes in the cityscape and the increased emergence of no-go areas. German is no longer spoken here, customs and traditions from the 1001 Nights apply and conflicts are resolved according to old customary applications of the law. No wonder that fewer and fewer Germans still dare to go out into the streets in their hometowns. #ZeitfürdieAfD Germany. But normal.

July 22, Ten Years On

Ten years ago today Anders Behring Breivik murdered 77 people in Oslo and on the island of Utøya. Of all the Counterjihad activists who were impacted by the political blowback from the attacks, none was more affected than Fjordman. Below are his remarks on the occasion of the anniversary.

July 22, Ten Years On

by Fjordman

Sometimes life can be very strange. When I was eating lunch in my small basement flat in Oslo on July 22, 2011, I did not anticipate that in a few hours my country would be rocked by a brutal mass murder. And I certainly did not expect that these events would also turn every aspect of my own life upside down.

Suddenly and without warning, I was thrown into the epicenter of an international media storm. Less than two weeks later, I had evacuated my home and fled from Norway out of serious concerns for my safety. At this point, I was publicly accused of being a possible accomplice to mass murder, and the suggested brains behind an international terrorist network. If my life in the summer of 2011 had been the script for a film, it would have been rejected as being too improbable to happen in real life. Yet all of this did happen to me, plus a lot more. All because of the actions of a man I have never once met in my entire life, not even for a cup of coffee.

Ten years later, things have calmed down somewhat. I have managed to reestablish a reasonably stable personal life. However, this is a new life in a new country.

I quietly moved back to Norway in 2017, to see whether it was possible for me to have a normal life there again. The answer was no. Three and a half years of applying for jobs turned out to be futile. I got no job whatsoever, not even as an unskilled laborer in factories, butcheries or the fishing industry. I applied for such jobs, too, not just for work in offices or shops.

In early 2021, I therefore decided to leave Norway again, for the second time in less than ten years. It is unlikely that I will return in the foreseeable future for anything other than short visits.

A decade of smears following the July 22 attacks by Anders Behring Breivik has left its mark. Norwegian media still publish new articles suggesting that I inspired mass murder. New comments are still being published on social media claiming that I have the blood of children on my hands. Not every month, fortunately, but from time to time.

Being quoted in Breivik’s confused compendium/manifesto is by far the greatest curse of my life. Nothing else even comes close. But perhaps it is possible to be cursed and blessed at the same time. I was also blessed with being surrounded by kind people. Both old friends and new friends alike.

I was homeless for some time. Friends in Denmark referred to me, only half-jokingly, as a political refugee from Norway. My first temporary home was with my friend Steen Raaschou in Copenhagen. He was exceptionally patient, and allowed me to occupy his sofa for months at a time. I also stayed for a while with professor emeritus Bent Jensen and his lovely Russian wife Tatjana. In the spring of 2012 I spent several months in the USA, and never lacked a bed to sleep in. My friend Ned May from Gates of Vienna helped me with this arrangement*. Not all of those who helped me probably want to be named. But they know who they are, and they have my gratitude.

In 2011, I had a part-time job in Oslo, working with young people suffering from autism. After the massive and extremely negative media focus on me in July and August of 2011, it was impossible for me to keep doing this job. Frankly, it was probably dangerous for me to even stay in my old flat. So I suddenly no longer had a job or steady income at the same time as I had to spend money on lawyers.

A Summer of Madness

Ten years ago I walked this street; my dreams were riding tall.
Tonight I would be thankful, Lord, for any dreams at all.

— Robert Hunter, from “Mission in the Rain”

Tomorrow is the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attack in Norway. On July 22, 2011, a man named Anders Behring Breivik detonated a truck bomb in central Oslo next to government headquarters, killing eight people. While police and emergency services were dealing with the aftermath, Mr. Breivik drove to the island of Utøya, where a summer camp for Socialist Youth was being held. There he methodically shot and killed sixty-nine teenagers with a high-powered rifle. When police finally arrived at the island, he calmly surrendered.

Anders Behring Breivik was a neo-Nazi, but that fact did not emerge until several years later, when he wrote a letter to multiple media outlets and admitted that his declared affiliation with the Counterjihad movement had been a strategic misdirection, to spare his Aryan nationalist comrades from persecution. That part of his letter to the media was widely ignored, and was never publicly reported by any major outlet. To this day he is widely identified as an anti-Islam ideologue.

Before he committed his atrocities, Mr. Breivik had arranged the media distribution of his manifesto, or as he preferred to call it, “the compendium”. It was a lengthy, rambling treatise. It contained some of his own writing, but most of it consisted of extensive quotes from various English-language writers, the most prominent of which were Fjordman and Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch.

Those writers and others mentioned in the manifesto became the focus of a media frenzy beginning the following morning. Progressive pundits applied their usual pseudo-syllogism to the Utøya massacre:

1.   Breivik admired Fjordman.
2.   Breivik massacred innocent people.
3.   Therefore Fjordman was at least partially responsible for the atrocity. Q.E.D.
 

As I mentioned above, the Butcher of Utøya did not really look up to Fjordman; his admiration was a feint. So even the pseudo-syllogism was wrong. But none of that mattered; any information to the contrary was ignored by the left-wing media. Fjordman became an object of universal loathing. In Norway he was Public Enemy #1, in some ways eclipsing Breivik himself.

Up until that time Fjordman had only published his essays under a pseudonym. Beginning on the morning of July 23, the press and internet sleuths began an intensive effort to unmask him. It was only a matter of time before his real identity was uncovered, so after retaining counsel and making himself known to police, he outed himself via an interview with the tabloid VG. After that he fled the country and went into hiding.

And it’s a good thing he did: there were calls for him to be arrested and tried as Mr. Breivik’s accomplice, despite the fact that the two had never met, and Fjordman had never advocated violence in any form. But Norwegian public opinion did not bother itself with such trivial matters as facts and the truth. The slaughter on Utøya required a scapegoat, and Fjordman was chosen for the role.

He lived outside of Norway for a number of years, and only returned when the risk of arrest had diminished. However, he was unable to find work. Any prospective employer who was aware of who he was would refuse to hire him, and if he somehow found a job, even a menial one, he would be discharged as soon as his employer became aware of his identity. Now, ten years after the attack, he is living outside the country again, since he is unemployable in his homeland.

And, regardless of Mr. Breivik’s admission that his admiration for Fjordman was a ruse, Fjordman is still widely known as “Breivik’s mentor”.

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

I won’t go into the Breivik affair in great detail, since this is primarily a reminiscence about the effect the atrocity had on Gates of Vienna and the Counterjihad in general. To learn more, check out the archives for the period from July 22, 2011 to ca. November 2011. Or look up the relevant items in the Fjordman Files. The trial of Anders Behring Breivik sucked up a lot of our blogging oxygen in the spring of 2012; see Circus Breivik for a relevant sample.

Because Gates of Vienna was the main venue for Fjordman’s writings, and was mentioned repeatedly in the killer’s manifesto, this site was put under the media’s klieg lights beginning the day after the massacre. We were thrust into a prominence we had never seen before (or since). It was a hideous kind of fame that I would never have asked for — they say there’s no such thing as bad publicity, but my experience in the summer of 2011 makes me vehemently disagree.

In the first few weeks we received hundreds (maybe thousands) of emails. Some of them were simply requests for information, but they were mostly hate mail, sometimes in Norwegian and Swedish. Various media outlets wanted to contact Fjordman, and I dutifully passed the messages on to him, but he didn’t respond to any of them.

The number of comments at Gates of Vienna (which was still on blogspot at the time) rose into the hundreds for each post, many of them from obvious trolls and provocateurs employed by one or another state intelligence service. They soon became unmanageable, so we reluctantly closed the blog to comments for a couple of months. When we reactivated them, we made them subject to moderation, and they’ve been that way ever since. It’s frustrating and annoying for commenters to have to wait to see their contributions appear, but otherwise Dymphna and I would have been unable to cope with all the trolls and provocateurs.

By the beginning of the week following the attack, media outlets started contacting me. They somehow managed to obtain my phone number, and I received calls from newspapers in Norway and the UK. Needless to say, I declined to say anything to them.

During our fifteen minutes of lurid fame we were mentioned in The New York Times and The Washington Post, among other illustrious publications. The following report from the NYT told its readers that Anders Behring Breivik had commented on Gates of Vienna several times:

What they said was quite true. Fortunately, I had already been alerted to the fact by a European contact, who told me the pseudonym that had been used by Mr. Breivik, so I was able to track down all his comments. Some people urged me to delete them, but that’s not the way we do business here at Gates of Vienna. First of all, nothing ever disappears completely from the Internet; it can always be found in the Wayback Machine or other web archives. But more importantly, I don’t believe in hiding the truth, whether it makes me look bad or not. So I collected all of the Butcher’s comments and reposted them.

Other things published by major media outlets, particularly the British tabloids, were not as accurate. The Washington Post published my name and something about me that was completely, factually false. I sent them an email demanding that they retract and correct their error, but I knew that nothing would happen. All I could do was post about what they did and ridicule them. If I had been a famous movie actress or best-selling novelist who could afford to retain high-powered lawyers, I might have had more success. But the WaPo knows it has nothing to fear from minnows like me.

Other papers, especially the tabloids, published even more ludicrous falsehoods about Gates of Vienna — who we were associated with, where we got our funding, etc., etc. And they asserted various bogus things about other people in the Counterjihad whom I knew personally — so-and-so is funded by the Koch Brothers, or the Mossad, or whatever. Just absolute nonsense.

That summer taught me not to believe ANYTHING that I read in the media unless it is corroborated by multiple independent sources and has a breadcrumb trail that leads back to verifiable facts. Which doesn’t leave much. Reading media news reports has become a form of entertainment for me, like reading mystery novels or watching The Simpsons.

The general effect on the Counterjihad was catastrophic. A lot of sites, especially those in Europe, closed down for good. A number of Counterjihad activists I knew personally soiled their breeches and fled the field at the first whiff of grapeshot. I must admit that I became exasperated with them — I said, “You knew how serious this work was when you got into it. What did you think we were doing, playing tiddlywinks??”

However, in retrospect, I’ve had to acknowledge that they did what they had to do. Unlike me, most of them had day jobs. They stood to lose a lot if they were exposed. Some of them had families to support. I can’t judge them. They dropped out of sight, and I haven’t heard from them since.

A few people urged me to shut down Gates of Vienna. But my Scots blood comes to the fore at such times, and my natural response is defiance. I said, “F**K THAT S**T!” [emphasis in the original] and soldiered on. It was a rough time, and I didn’t get much sleep for the first couple of months. But we weathered the storm.

On the whole, however, it was a major setback from which the Counterjihad never fully recovered. The resistance to Islamization has never returned to the level of July 21, 2011. Freedom of speech has been eroded even further, and sharia is now de facto in force in much of the West.

Dymphna and I always thought that Anders Behring Breivik’s machinations had been guided and assisted by a certain three-letter agency with the assistance of Norwegian intelligence. His “compendium” was obviously in large part not his own work, and his selection of “mentors” was exquisitely chosen to do maximum damage to those who opposed Islamization, at the exact time when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was in the thick of collaborating with the Muslim Brotherhood in what eventually became known as the “Istanbul Process”. Resistance to Islam was a thorn in her side, and Anders Behring Breivik helped remove it.

I don’t think mass slaughter was part of the plan, however — the Norwegians would never have co-operated with such an operation. I think the intention was to let Mr. Breivik put together his scheme, and then roll it up at the last moment before it was executed. There would have been a prominent arrest, followed by maximum media publicity for his manifesto.

However, just before the plans matured, Wikileaks released a damaging series of documents showing some of the things [agency name redacted] had been up to in Europe, which forced them to shut down their presence in the American embassy in Oslo and withdraw Mr. Breivik’s handlers. The Butcher of Utøya was then let off his leash, and the rest is history.

Whether mass slaughter was intended or not, the plan was a great success. The Counterjihad was hobbled, the spread of sharia proceeded apace, and the Obama administration became a servant of the Muslim Brotherhood. And the Biden administration is, in effect, Obama’s third term.

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

Before I close these remarks, I’d like to address an appalling issue that has emerged surrounding the mass murder committed by Anders Behring Breivik. When it first came up it was very distressing, but I’ve had ten years to get used to it. Now it’s just something that I have to endure whenever the topic is broached on this site.

In those early days I was shocked by the number of people who supported Mr. Breivik and considered him a hero for what he did. And I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and Aryan supremacists, but more mainstream people who oppose mass immigration and hate socialism. Every time I post something about the Butcher of Utøya they pop up again and express their admiration for him.

I’m not going to tolerate such comments, and will delete them when they appear. You might as well spare yourself the effort. If you want, you can visit Storm Front and similar sites and make your remarks there, where you’ll get a sympathetic reception and find a lot of people who agree with you.

I’m familiar with the arguments that people make to justify their opinion: Mr. Breivik was targeting future socialists, who would otherwise have grown up and entered politics and invited even more of the Third World into Norway. But that’s a specious line of reasoning, in my opinion. The mass slaughter only hardened public opinion against those who oppose mass immigration, and made it even more difficult to restrain such immigration. Killing all those kids inspired no sympathy for the Aryan cause; it had the opposite effect.

But that’s just the practical, utilitarian argument against it.

Mr. Breivik’s strategy was a recapitulation of one of the major trends of the 20th century: the mass extermination of entire classes of people. For him it was Young Socialists. For Hitler it was Jews, gypsies, communists, homosexuals, and the feeble-minded. For Stalin it was counter-revolutionaries, “wreckers”, the bourgeoisie, kulaks, and Ukrainians. For Pol Pot it was the intellectuals. For the Hutus it was the Tutsis. For Muslims it was Jews, Christians, Hindus, and other infidels.

What all the architects of those atrocities have in common is that they considered it morally justifiable, and even laudable, to engage in the mass slaughter of people based on their membership in a particular class — a race, a social class, an occupation, a nationality, etc. Individuals meant nothing. Those who engineered the massacres were not required to determine whether their victims were guilty of any crimes, or even subscribed to a particular ideology. They were members of a class, and for that reason they deserved to die. Men, women, children, invalids, the elderly and enfeebled — all had to go.

That is a pernicious mindset, and I’ll have none of it. It was the bane of the 20th century, and we’ve no business extending it into the 21st.

I know the counter-arguments — we’re in a war, and war sometimes requires us to do horrible things, etc., etc. If we want to win, we have to grit our teeth and do what is necessary.

Well, if that’s what it takes to win, then I don’t want to win. I’ll go down to defeat rather than jump into that particular boxcar to hell.

Germany is Looking at the Chinese Model

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from Tichys Einblick:

Effective in Climate Protection

Ministry of Education is considering social point system based on the Chinese model for Germany

In a study commissioned by the Federal Ministry of Education, one of six future scenarios is the introduction of a social point system based on the Chinese model. Jobs and study places then depend on social commitment and a small ecological footprint.

Orientation for the “world of tomorrow” is what the Federal Ministry of Education wants to offer with the “Foresight” (Vorausschau) campaign. For this purpose, six future scenarios have been devised in a commissioned “value study”, which researchers will discuss there. In addition to the “European Way” and “Ecological Regionalization”, there is also the “The Bonus System” scenario. The point is that every person receives an individual social score, which should play a decisive role in the allocation of jobs or university places, for example. It is a social point system, as it is currently being tested in China. However, this scenario does not serve as a dark dystopia — neutral, almost positive, the effects are shown and weighed up.

The paper by the Federal Ministry of Education states: “For certain behavior, points can be collected in the point system operated by the state (e.g. volunteering, caring for relatives, organ donations, provision for old age, traffic behavior, carbon footprint). In addition to social recognition, collecting points also has advantages in everyday life (e.g. shorter waiting times for certain courses).”

The approval of the law among the population would increase through “the dynamics of climate change”. The system is in fact successful in this area: “This generated pressure to act to counteract, whereby a points system turned out to be an efficient control mechanism for dealing with the consequences of climate change (e.g. by scoring the ecological footprint). The ‘polluter pays’ principle was made transparent through the point system. In addition, given the good economic situation, the point system proved to be a suitable instrument for the labor market, which is characterized by a shortage of skilled workers and workers,” it says.

In the year 2030, the social point system will then only be fundamentally questioned by a minority: “The point system will meet with approval from a majority of the population in the 2030s, as many feel that it has a binding orientation function for a more complex and differentiated society occupied by different social groups. At the same time, in Germany in the 2030s, the point system as a forecasting and control tool was gradually anchoring new norms in everyday life.” The social point system would obviously also be profitable for democracy. The state sets incentives “for activity in civil society or political organizations, as this is conducive to pluralistic discourse and is seen as the basis of the social evaluation system. Only those who are active here are able to get involved in social decision-making.”

The Clueless Clucking Clan

MC’s latest essay concerns the intersection of Racism, Woke ideology, and the Corona “pandemic”.

The Clueless Clucking Clan

by MC

I am an anti-vaxxer. I have spent hours of study, looking at the benefits of vaccines, and also the risks associated with vaccines, and the effectiveness of vaccines — I have also followed the money…

In my opinion, it is not a pretty picture.

My oldest son had a febrile fit following on from an MMR injection (he is now 40) — he survived, and in spite of some small personality changes, he was OK.

It was my sister-in-law who warned us about the MMR Jab and its dubious history (the first version was withdrawn after adverse side-effects were reported). My wife and I had argued over having the jab for our son; unfortunately, I won.

I would encourage all parents to do the research for themselves, here is a good place to start.

If I wanted to break the Constitution of the USA I would have to choose my point of attack very carefully; I would need to get the People to want to break it, to be so fearful of outcomes as to voluntarily submit to destroying individual choice for the benefit of the ‘group’.

What could be better, then, than a ‘Satan Bug‘ and a vaccine that ‘must’ be administered to all for it to be ‘safe’ and effective and provide ‘salvation’?

It is not white supremacy as such which is the problem, after all, almost all of the original communists were white (and mostly male — Kollontai and Luxemburg being the exceptions). Most of those who fought against slavery were white, and most of those who dreamt up ideas of individual liberty and freedom were also white.

It is ironic that dead white men are also behind the wokism that so besets the modern USA and most of the rest of the world, and one might even think that any intelligent non-white wokista would smell a rat…

Imagine a modern implementation of the post-bellum Ku Klux Klan, but designed to support minority non-white interests instead of defeated ‘white’ interests. What would it look like? It seems to me that the Democrat party has once more scraped through the bottom of their barrel of dirty tricks and come up with an inverted KKK clone — lets call it the CCC.

The assassination of President Lincoln created political chaos, especially as he had chosen a Democrat as his running mate Vice President in the hope of some sort of reconciliation. President Trump was not assassinated as such, but a majority of Americans believe that there was election fraud, and that Sleepy Joe is just not legitimate.

The reactions of the Democrats to the Arizona election audit has convinced me that there is something to hide here. Instead of welcoming an audit as an honest winner would do, the Democrats are squirming like a child who has had an ‘accident’.

Wokism is pure racism and is Nazism in drag. It will soon turn lethal if not scotched. The political buildup that led to Adolf Hitler started with a ‘red/green’ alliance; The socialism of German Workers’ Party (DAP) combined with the ‘volkism’ of the Thule, Vril and Wandervogel pseudo-religious cults gave us the NSDAP and many millions dead.

The Kobold of Corona

Karl Lauterbach is a member of the German Bundestag for the Social Democrats. He is also a professor of epidemiology (among other things) at the University of Cologne. That office, plus his socialist credentials, provide him with impeccable standing as an expert talking head on the Wuhan Coronavirus.

Hellequin GB, who translated the following piece, provides an alternate gloss on Prof. Lauterbach:

The Original: Klabautermann

A Klabautermann is a water kobold that assists sailors and fishermen in their duties on the Baltic and North Seas. It is a merry and diligent creature, with an expert understanding of most watercraft, and an irrepressible musical talent. It is believed to rescue sailors washed overboard.

The New Variant: Klabauterbach

Klabauterbach is an evil vaccine kobold that assists governments and global elites in Germany in their drive to kill and control humanity. It’s a horrible but diligent creature with an expert understanding of how to create fear and doom. It’s believed to sing and dance on the graves of the murdered. This nasty creature can be held at bay with SALT.

The translated article from Politically Incorrect:

Book about Karl Lauterbach: Protocol of a burned-out emergency phone

Karl Lauterbach is THE face of alarmism in this Corona crisis: A pandemic, which probably never was, was exaggerated by figures like him into an almost eternal catastrophe right after it was declared by the WHO — and is still exaggerated to this day.

Thanks to Corona, the SPD “health expert” Karl Lauterbach, previously a kind of eccentric backbencher at best, almost blossomed — and became a permanent guest on public-service talk formats, where he reported his daily Corona water level reports and threw his questionable scientific authority on the scales to give Germans one fright after another. Through his talk show appearances, the obvious madness grew and continues to this day like a red thread.

Hardly anyone has been so wrong with his assessments, prognoses and warnings so often as he has. His reputation — especially among the government factions and the top representatives of the Spahn-Merkel Corona regime — surprisingly sustained no damage through the considerable series of his false alarms: Lauterbach can still spread his bizarre, hysterical visions of disaster unhindered even if they are far removed from the perceived and actual situation. With him there is simply never an all-clear. One wave chases the next. And if it were no longer the case at some point, he would be robbed of his public platforms — he would probably lapse into the most severe depression.

By the way: Before Corona, Lauterbach, who has never worked as a doctor (and in 25 years as an SPD political apparatchik, could not have found the time to look beyond the superficial aspects of the studies he cited and to acquire the scientific authority with which he appears as an “epidemiologist” and “virologist”) had a completely different hobbyhorse in terms of health — and even then an irrational, pathological fear came to light in him: SALT. At every opportunity, Lauterbach warned of the dangers of too much table salt in his food, revealed how he himself prepared pasta and potatoes without salt and that the widespread disease high blood pressure could only be kept under control with a strict low-salt diet.

The Terror on Utøya and the Nuances of Insanity

Next Thursday will mark the tenth anniversary of the massacre of 77 people in Norway by Anders Behring Breivik, the Butcher of Utøya. The events of that day turned my life upside down for a few months, but what happened to me is trivial compared to what Fjordman went through.

There were far too many posts on those events for me to link to just one. If you want a refresher course, dig into the archives beginning on July 22, 2011 and work your way forward. It began with a live blog that included Fjordman himself.

I expect that we’ll be hearing from Fjordman in due course, and I’ll write a brief reminiscence of my own. But today I’ll start with excerpts from a post by Ronie Berggren, a Swedish blogger and podcaster. Many thanks to our Swedish correspondent LN for the translation:

The terror on Utøya and the nuances of insanity

July 4, 2021

Ronie Berggren reviews the book Witness to madness [Vitne til vanvidd] by Peder Jensen, about the witch hunt against Islam critics and critics of mass immigration that prevailed after the terrorist attack on the Norwegian island of Utøya on July 22, 2011, for which Jensen himself was pilloried as perpetrator Anders Behring Breivik’s prophet.

It has been ten years since Anders Behring Breivik detonated a bomb in Oslo’s government quarters and then shot 69 young people dead in a Social Democratic camp on the island of Utøya. It happened on July 22, 2011. An insane world was on view, for which Breivik was sentenced to 21 years in prison.

[…]

I have not read everything that his critics have written. I have read parts of Øyvind Strømmen’s book, whose Swedish translation I bought when it came out. I have not read Simen Sætre’s book about Jensen / Fjordman, but I have seen a lecture by him on YouTube, a 20-minute sleeping pill.

My own impression is that these experts are less knowledgeable than their Swedish counterparts, and especially Mattias Gardell (whom I read most of, and whose research methods I have great respect for even if I do not share his political views, which I consider obscure his conclusions). Gardell’s strength is that he is usually well-read about the subjects he describes, although he often simplifies and paints with far too broad a brushstroke, and creates his own narratives instead of examining the truth objectively. But despite that, he is still knowledgeable, or at least well-read, which Simen Sætre does not seem to be at all.

I therefore judge, based on the qualifications I actually have, that Peder Jensen is much more credible than his critics. Which brings me to the last part of my conclusions.

For the past ten years Peder Jensen has had to live as an outcast from his own country. Social stigma and unemployment are the price he has to pay for living by a principle that should be respected: the search for the truth and the courage to stand up for the truth he believes he has discovered. In a healthy nation, such people are utilized, made into political leaders if they are practical, or professors if they are more theoretically minded. This has not happened in Jensen’s case. Instead, the opposite has happened.

Another Phony Islamic Academic

This story about a bogus professor of Islam in Germany brings to mind the silver-tongued philosopher and snake-oil salesman Tariq Ramadan.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from Politically Incorrect:

Fake professor advised the state of North Rhine-Westphalia on Islam

by Manfred Rouhs

The Ministry of Education of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia is separating itself from a (possibly only supposed) humanities scholar who advised the authority on Islamic matters for more than ten years. This is what Die Welt reports. The report states that the man “apparently built his professional career partly on false information.” The vernacular speaks of impostors in cases of this type.

The long-standing government advisor was responsible for, among other things, Islamic religious instruction in the most populous federal state, and prefixed his name with “Prof. Dr.” Photos show him with important politicians such as the former Federal Presidents Christian Wulff and Horst Köhler, whose image of Islam he apparently helped to shape.

Too bad that nobody knows on which university he’s a professor at. And a dissertation written by him could not even be found by the editors of Die Welt. The termination of his contract with the Düsseldorf Ministry allows the assumption that the Islam scholar’s curriculum vitae, which was submitted more than a decade ago when he was hired, may have been incorrect in some details.

Obviously, an academic career at Central European universities is not necessary to successfully advise a Federal Republican ministry for more than ten years on matters of Islam and, in particular, Islamic religious instruction. What is important for such activities is rather the ability of the advisor to listen carefully and to be able to find out what the decision-makers to be advised want to hear: Islam is good.

An Arbitrary Political Trial

Geert Wilders, the leader of the Party for Freedom (Partij voor de Vrijheid, PVV) in the Netherlands, has lost his final appeal in the “hate speech” case against him. The Dutch Supreme Court upheld his 2014 conviction for “discrimination” based on his agreement with his supporters that there should be fewer, not more Moroccans in the Netherlands. Which would seem a reasonable thing to say, one that any sane Dutch person could hardly disagree with, given the recent behavior of Ridouan Taghi and the Mocro Mob.

Unfortunately, there may not be very many sane people left in the Netherlands. Mr. Wilders still has numerous supporters, but not enough to change the suicidal trajectory of the country through voting.

The following video features remarks made by Geert Wilders after the announcement of the verdict against him. Many thanks to Gary Fouse for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Wearing Out Their Welcome

It’s been six years since Chancellor Angela Merkel opened the borders and invited the world to take up residency in Germany. Hellequin GB has translated three articles from PolitikStube with some of the latest news on the Great Migration Crisis.

The first article discusses the fact that culture-enrichers are sucking up a larger and larger proportion of the country’s welfare payments. “Hartz IV” is a reference to the current social welfare benefits system in Germany:

13 billion euros for foreign Hartz IV recipients

Entitlements have doubled since 2007 — fewer German citizens receive benefits

The entitlement payments for Hartz IV recipients without a German passport have doubled since 2007 and have increased to almost €13 billion in 2020. In 2019 it was €12.5 billion. This emerges from a response from the Federal Ministry of Labour to a request from the AfD member René Springer, which was made available to the Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung (NOZ).

In 2007, the claims of foreign Hartz IV recipients were therefore just under €6.6 billion. The increase to date has been around 6.4 billion euros. “Germany needs a restrictive immigration policy that effectively prevents poverty migration. Denmark shows us that such a policy is possible if the political will is there,” Springer told the NOZ.

Because the number of German Hartz IV recipients has declined in recent years, the payment claims of all beneficiaries have fallen by a total of €1.1 billion to €35.4 billion. The sum of the Hartz IV payment claims of German households decreased from almost €30 billion in 2007 to €22.3 billion in 2020. That is €7.7 billion less than 13 years ago, according to the answer from the Ministry of Labour.

In the group of foreign Hartz IV recipients, citizens from other EU countries had claims of around €2.6 billion. For people from the eight most important asylum countries of origin, it was a good €6 billion. More than half of this (€3.4 billion) went to refugees from Syria, followed by Iraqis (€825 million) and Afghans (€870 million).

According to the statistics, around one in ten beneficiaries (9.7 percent) is a Syrian. In 2007, almost 82 percent of all Hartz IV recipients were Germans; their share has now fallen to 62.9 percent.

Persons entitled to asylum in Germany are eligible for standard benefits according to the second German Social Code (Hartz IV) after one and a half years of residence at the earliest, if they cannot provide for their own maintenance.

More and more welfare, and also more and more knife attacks, according to the second article:

Och, Weep for the Puir Wee Bairns!

After the heartstrings of the Western world had been sufficiently tugged by the migration-loving media, the 572 “rescued” “refugees” from the Ocean Viking were finally allowed to land in Sicily.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from PolitikStube:

Successful pity tour: Ocean Viking is allowed to unload 572 people looking for supplies in Italy

The pity tour (tension, exhaustion, heat, seasickness, psychological cases) of the Ocean Viking crew and the show à la Hollywood were worth it; the 572 guests on board can be unloaded in Italy. As Welt.de reports, the migrant ferry has already reached and docked the port of Augusta in Sicily. After the Corona tests, those looking for supplies are allowed to leave the ship, including 183 minors, of which 159 are children and adolescents unaccompanied by adults, and two severely physically disabled children as well as a pregnant woman.

Before the redeeming news of the allocation of a “safe haven” came, the tear glands were vigorously activated. Every hour the situation on board would worsen and the psychological cases would increase. A man even jumped overboard into the Mediterranean because he felt that he could no longer withstand the uncertainty. The food rations would also no longer be sufficient.

A video shows how desperate and exhausted some of the guests were on board; well, the impression can also be deceptive.

The following video from minute 0:31 shows the man who jumped into the water because of the uncertainty and was picked up again.

Four Years in Juvie For Burning a Woman to Death

Back in February I posted about a gang of culture-enrichers in the Swedish city of Nässjö who set fire to a house with an elderly woman inside, burning her to death.

The Swedish “justice” system has now thrown the book at those rascally youths: the ringleader has been sentenced to four years in juvenile detention, and his accomplices were given similar sentences. Ha! That’ll teach those young whippersnappers a lesson!

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

17-year-old sentenced to 4 years in juvenile custody after arson

ANNEBERG: On Friday a 17-year-old boy was sentenced for setting a villa on fire in Anneberg in Nässjö municipality and killing a woman who lived there. SVT reports that he has been sentenced to four years in juvenile custody for murder and arson.

The crime occurred on February 1 of this year. The 17-year-old admitted that he set the fire which caused the total destruction of the house and the incineration of the woman inside, but maintains that he didn’t think the woman was still inside and that he had no intention of killing her.

The Eksjö District Court convicted him of murder and arson as well as aggravated theft, vandalism, and harassment, and the punishment is four years in juvenile detention. He will also pay 180,000 kronor in damages to the woman’s relatives.

“That is a reasonable punishment, which corresponds to life in prison for an adult,” says Prosecutor Helene Thomasson to SVT.

Before the fire started the 17-year-old and his two companions harassed the 68-year-old woman. They followed her to her home and shouted curse words at her and spat at her, among other things. The woman called the police, who came, but by then the trio had left.

The two accomplices have been sentenced to juvenile detention and youth service for harassment and also for violation of the law for protection from accidents, since they did not sound the alarm for the fire.

Update on the Case of Denny Abrahamsson

Just before the “pandemic” began last year I posted about the “hate speech” case against a Swede named Denny Abrahamsson, who had been prosecuted for hets mot folkgrupp (“agitation against an ethnic group”) for saying things about Islam on social media that Muslims might find offensive. Since then his case has gone all the way to Sweden’s Supreme Court, which ruled against him.

Mr. Abrahamsson sent me the following open letter to warn the world that Sweden is in big trouble:

In Sweden we have a law about agitation against ethnic groups from 1948. The original purpose was to stop anti-Semitism. It was also meant to protect homosexuals and other minority groups, so the law was very justified.

In the year 1999 the Swedish Social Democrats made a secret agreement with Islamic groups with ties to Muslim Brotherhood to replace lost support from the Swedish working class with votes from Muslim immigrants. To get these votes they promised to give Muslims positions in municipalities, county councils and parliament. After that this law more or less became a sharia law used to stop criticism of Islam, and the judiciary have become very left-leaning. Many Muslim rapists and gang members get very soft sentences and very few of them get deported even if they don’t have citizenship.

There is also a group called “Online Hate Reviewers” who scan social media for “racial” comments about immigrants published mostly by retired people. Swedish people are very scared of being labelled racists, as they can lose their jobs and friends, so young people are mostly quiet.

The reviewers’ group gets taxpayers money from the government, and 2017 I was reported by a snitch after comments I made in a closed Facebook group calling Islam a fascist ideology and Mohammed a pedophile. In Sweden Islam is regarded as an ethnic group, but I was lucky and was acquitted. So the prosecutor appealed in the Court of Appeals, and I won again.

Shortly thereafter the same snitch reported me again for other comments on Facebook. The odd thing is I made these comments in another country, but if its directed at a Swedish audience, it falls under Swedish law even if you write it in a closed group who share the same opinions. This time, in June 2018, I was questioned by a Turkish woman who I suspected was a Muslim, but she refused to answer when I asked. It was a very unfriendly hearing, and she had also spent very much time going through my Facebook account mapping my children with names and pictures. My youngest son was very upset that this was open information for anybody to look into. Two years ago my account on Facebook was closed after I received many strikes about my comments.

The trial was set for the end of January 2020, but since I was being treated for blood clots in my lungs and left leg I asked if they could move it to June when I was planning to visit my family. I even sent a letter from a Thai doctor who dissuaded me from flying 11 hours, but the court didn’t listen to that, and I received a fine of €400 for not showing up. The next trial was set for the middle of September, as there were many problems with Covid. I booked a flight with Finnair that got cancelled for the same reason. I therefore agreed that my lawyer could represent me in my absence.

This time I was convicted and my crime was considered so bad that they wanted to jail me, but they considered my old age and gave me a heavy fine instead. The fine is set in proportion to your income, but they looked at the year 2015 when my income was three times higher than it is today. I have a pension of only €1,200 per month and my fine was €2,000 instead of the normal €600. When you lose you also have to pay your lawyer, and he cost €1,850.

The Cold-Blooded Execution of a Swedish Cop

Last week I posted about a Swedish policeman who was murdered by a culture-enricher in Gothenburg. The following essay from Katerina Magasin is a blistering indictment of Swedish political leaders for their migration policies which led to the execution of the officer.

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for the translation:

A declaration of war against Sweden — How many more must die before politicians act?

Information: Shooter aimed straight at policeman

Not an accidental shooting, mistake, or something similar

July 1, 2021

The headlines about aggravated violence are so thick that we have become stunned. We cannot take any more. Terror, stabbings, gang rapes, torture, brutality our country has never previously suffered. But yesterday’s cold-blooded execution of a young policeman in this vulnerable neighborhood of Biskopsgården in Gothenburg — who, as far as I understand, was talking to people to gather witness statements — is another step toward a lawless and deadly country where criminal foreigners openly declare war against the society that so generously took them in and gave them all the conditions in which to live a respectable life. The incompetent police leaders have sacrificed a policeman in service. The criminals have already declared war against our Sweden, and the execution is another step in the war. What will it take for society to strike back? [PM Stefan] Löfven’s phrases at today’s press conference are just empty words. He has promised since 2014 to break the gangs. The result is that a policeman was murdered in the street. We find ourselves with an internal attack against our nation. Yet the political debate is almost exclusively about not giving the Sweden Democrats political influence. It is as bizarre as it is sick.

Many of us feel great sadness and despair that a young policeman was murdered yesterday. The month of July could not have begun worse. But there is room for many feelings in the body. Sadness over an extinguished life, meaningless death in an unsafe Sweden which is incapable of protecting either our children, our elderly, or emergency personnel. And at the same time, anger over paralyzed politicians who flat-out lie and fight with each other for power as if they were a bunch of small children in a sandbox at the same time Sweden is writhing in pain and convulsions. Politicians who have been entrusted by the electorate with leading the country, who cannot complete the most basic tasks. On the contrary, politicians spit in the faces of their own people. Instead of defending their own people, they pamper criminal foreigners. The Social Democrats have allied themselves with Islamists whom they help in every way they can, at the expense of the Swedish people.

A couple of years ago I was contacted by a police officer who wanted to remain anonymous. He informed me that there was a price on a policeman’s head in the part of Sweden where he worked. The criminals gathered together a pot, which whoever succeeded in killing a police officer would get. I am leaving out which part of Sweden that was, but it was not Gothenburg. But it would not surprise me if the declaration of war against our society were to become more focused. The foreigners who hate Sweden strike against everything that our country is built upon: Openness, democracy, respect. They burn buildings and cars, they threaten and injure police, they threaten media and journalists, they rape, beat, murder, extort, torture, and oppress. Sweden’s undemanding migration policy and political cowardice have allowed a growing cancer of foreign clans to grow ever stronger and get a larger grip on society. Silence and fear spread, and nobody goes about secure and safe in what used to be one of the world’s most respected and prominent countries. Instead, it is how a hothouse for Islamists and criminals who rape our country daily. Now how shall authorities and those in power respond to the nightly armed occupation of our land?

Löfven’s government, whether still sitting or resigned, has the blood of a young policeman and the blood of many others on its hands. They are more guilty for this chaos and decay than the criminal gangs who hold the weapons. Someone on social media suggested that Löfven, and also [former PM Fredrik] Reinfeldt, should be brought before a national court. I agree.
