Sir Robert Peel Must be Rolling in His Grave

by Seneca III

Things have come to a sorry pass in this once green and pleasant land. As I look around subsumed by dismay and morbid fascination, I have been forced to come to some appalling conclusions:

  • A society in which you are investigated for your thinking when you openly question whether men can “be” women is a Sick Society.
  • A society in which you are arrested for detaining a man who molests your daughter in public is a Dhimmi State.
  • A society in which tens of thousands of organised sexual crimes against children go knowingly unpunished to avoid the terrible charge of racism is a Conquered State.
  • A society in which it is bigoted to object to having ageing men dressed as women “twerk” to pre-school children in a public library is a Deviant Society.
  • A society in which basic observations of reality are forbidden by the use of magic words — “racism” “-phobia” — is a Silenced State.
  • A society in which you can be ruined for speaking the truth out loud is a Police State.
  • A society in which the shameful and disgusting are celebrated as virtues is a Failed State.
  • A society which has replaced the national home with the borderless market of everywhere is a Globalist State.
  • A society in which an invented grievance is a good career move is a Doomed State.
  • A society that penalises the talented and the bright in the name of “diversity” is a Suicidal State.

It is no surprise then that UK cops have been knuckling down clearing the streets and public places when there is no necessity to do so under even the latest Covid rules, and even when people were complying with them. They have actually gone to the length of poisoning scenic lakes so that people will not endanger the new status quo by travelling to look at them and enjoy the scenery and the fresh, healthy air.

This is no surprise, really, as it is axiomatic that the more power given to any police, the more they will abuse it. That is a law of nature, has ever been thus, and is one which in this particular case is exacerbated by three factors. The first is that their officer class is, on the whole, populated by graduate Common Purpose drones and ambitious box-tickers who appear to have nothing but contempt for Peelian principles. I doubt if they’re even taught anymore at Bramshill* (or whatever they’ve restructured and renamed it in the name of PC progress since 2015).

The second is that the collective IQ of the beat constabulary is now not, shall we say, particularly high for reasons iterated below, and thus thinking things through pragmatically in the light of observed reality is not really their forte. This leads them to function as a type of pre-programmed automata in accordance with the vague instructions given to them in their last briefing from the drones and box-tickers who have even less of a clue about what is happening in the real world.

The third and final — and the one with perhaps the most detrimental effect on the front line — is the introduction of ‘Affirmative Action’ over the last few decades and the consequent lowering of physical and mental entry qualifications in order to meet politically mandated quotas, many of such recruits having ideological motivations not in keeping with those of the majority population they exercise power over.

These powers are not something they or the government will willingly give up, and it is not out of the question that come the day — in approximately six months by my reckoning when they should do so by self-relinquishing these powers through the ‘Sunset Clause’ recently appended to the enabling legislation — they may not, but extend instead.

Consequently, for the time being, when being questioned or having your thoughts corrected, being fined or arrested, just smile sweetly, be polite and always use English with as many three or more syllable words as you can muster. There is little else you can or should do until the moment of truth re the Sunset Clause — and if it is extended, then…

You’re Doing it Wrong!

Our Hungarian correspondent CrossWare sends this report on the ankle-biting of the Hungarian Left in these virus-crazy times:

Here in Hungary, the opposition (Uncle George Soros’ paid team) is in a hysterical frenzy trying to find some way to block or at least criticize Viktor Orbán and his handling of the Chinese virus crisis. So far they have not been able to find anything. They tried the good old solution of calling his government “Nazi”, for asking for more power to execute emergency tasks. They simply compared his actions to Hitler’s rise to power, or called it a coup. Of course sounds a bit weak, saying the PM is preparing a coup against his own government, which holds a super-majority, to what? Replace himself and be PM with super-majority…?

This stupidity caused even some of the Leftists to start thinking, and the opposition dropped in the polls, while Fidesz (Mr. Orbán’s party) became a bit stronger.

Obviously the opposition in the USA and in Hungary (and everywhere else) are working from the same script when it comes to criticizing the (right-wing) government steps against the coronavirus outbreak. Nothing is good enough for them; everything the government is doing is wrong, blah blah blah. The “people of the Internet” of course immediately created a short meme about this, which I would like to share with you.

The “it” that they want to close down or open up refers to the borders, the economy, the schools, businesses… — you name it; everything.

Here is an image of the meme, with a translation to follow:

So the opposition suggests: (in USA those are the DemocRATs; here in Hungary the paid lackeys of Uncle George):

1.   Close it up.
2.   Close it up, but not that way.
3.   Close it up, but leave it open.
4.   Open it up, because it was closed incorrectly; screwed it up; start again.
5.   Why the heck was it closed up; open it up immediately!
6.   Open it up, but not that way.
7.   Open it up, but definitely keep it closed, because teachers are people, too.
8.   Do not waste time with teachers, but do not collapse the economy.
9.   Close it up, because he failed; it would be best if he immediately steps down, so it can be opened up.
 

So there you have the Left’s whining points, applicable everywhere in the world, wherever a right-wing government is in power.

Migrant-“Rescue” NGOs Are Raring to Go

It appears that the flow of migrant-“rescue” ships into Italy has stopped not because of prohibitions by the Italians, but simply because it is logistically impossible to organize the ships’ putting out to sea.

Many thanks to FouseSquawk for translating this op-ed from Il Giornale:

The NGOs don’t want to stop: Ready to bring in more migrants

The NGOs are itching to return to sea. For them it doesn’t seem to be a problem that bringing migrants into Italy at this time would present further difficulties for our country, which is exhausted by the battle against the coronavirus.

by Mauro Indelicato
March 21, 2020

It is true that in Libya, the war has not stopped, true that the emergency has lasted almost a decade, but that does not detract from the fact that the Italian conflict, in which our country is fighting against Covid-19, is also causing pain and suffering in the population.

This is a principle perhaps almost banal to mention, but not for some representatives of NGOs, which are chomping at the bit to get back to sea and bring in dozens more migrants into Italy. The words of Riccardo Gatti, president of Open Arms, from a few days ago, seem rather eloquent: “In Libya there are still men, women and children risking their lives every day,” declared the head of the Spanish NGO. “In Libya, the coronavirus is not the only problem; their lives are being violated. Every day.”

“The young men of Open Arms consider themselves missionaries of immigration, brave paladins of the weakest, modern-day Robin Hoods,” underlined Maurizio Belpietro in La Verita [The Truth]. They want to return to Libya; for them it almost seems that the only suffering of note is that of those who live on the Mediterranean shore of Africa.

It is not so important to them, therefore, whether Italy today is not able to accept even one more person, considering the thousands who, with difficulty and not a few risks, are confined within the reception centers.

Not only Gatti and not only Open Arms, but the members of the French NGO, SOS Méditerranée are clawing to get out, who yesterday declared that they have docked the Ocean Viking at Marseilles and are respecting the anti-virus regulations in force also in France. “But we are working to return to sea as soon as possible,” they wanted to report.

You remain inside the port because you are forced to do so by circumstances, not to avoid worsening the condition of a country such as ours, exhausted and tested by an unexpected public health emergency, and therefore even more terrible to live in. All of Italy is under pressure from what is happening: not only the citizens, but especially the doctors and volunteers in the ward who have not seen their own families for weeks in order to give the hope of life to all those people who no longer have the strength to breathe on their own.

A Member of the Bundestag Calls for a Law Guaranteeing Funding for Antifa

I’ve often said that violent Antifa groups in various European countries have at least the tacit support of the governments in those countries. Well, now it’s official, at least in Germany: the support is public and out there in the open. And not only that, we now know that the German government has actually been funding these Antifa groups for years. This fact was mentioned in passing on the floor of the Bundestag by a member of the Green Party who was calling for a new law to guarantee funding for the Antifas.

Jimmie Åkesson: We Must Make Sure It Isn’t 2015 All Over Again

Jimmie Åkesson is the leader of the Sweden Democrats (Sverigedemokraterna). As reported here a couple of days ago, he recently visited the Turkish side of the border between Greece and Turkey to hand out leaflets to migrants telling them that Sweden is full, and that they should not try to go there.

A Few Bricks Shy of a Load

Solders of Allah

I find myself at a loss for words concerning this news story from Modern Multicultural Sweden. I can’t even think of something flip to say — and you all know how unusual that is for me.

Boys are circumcised with a soldering gun — “Doctor” is prosecuted


“Doctor’s” tool. Photo: Police

March 12, 2020

GÄVLE / SÖDERHAMN — A man in his 30s is now being prosecuted for having circumcised nine boys in Gävle and Söderhamn — without anesthetic and with a soldering gun as a tool. So reports Helahälsingland.

The man charged is said to have received nine months of medical training in Syria, and has had no such training in Sweden. The reason he used a soldering gun during the operations, he explains, is that it “has so much heat that all possible bacteria die”.

The man himself thinks he is good at performing circumcisions, but does not have the permits required to do so in Sweden.

According to the prosecution, he circumcised nine boys, seven of whom have had complications that in some cases may need to be corrected with surgical procedures.

The parents paid for the operation with Swish and were under the delusion that it was all legal and safe. They unanimously stated that the person who organized the circumcisions was in charge of the now-closed Muslim preschool Bilaal in Söderhamn, and that the man was perceived as reliable.

According to the parents, this man must have been active in the operations and held the children. He himself says that he only participated as an interpreter. He is not suspected of any crime.

“He did not know that this person did not have a permit, therefore it is not possible to prove that the suspect had the intent required for the procedure to be criminal,” the prosecutor Micael Dahlberg told Helahälsingland.

The “doctor” is charged with assault, causing grievous bodily harm, and violation of the law on circumcision of boys.

Sweden Must Die

Demonstration in Malmö: “Sweden must die”

March 9, 2020

“Sweden must die.” This was one of the messages when left-wing activists demonstrated at Möllevångstorget in Malmö.

During a march in Malmö on International Women’s Day on Sunday one of the protesters carried a sign with the message that Sweden must die. On other signs there were, among others, slogans such as “Klasskamp = transkamp“ (Class struggle = trans fight).

“Not really what the labor movement’s pioneers August Palm and Kata Dalström might have intended,” writes the local party Malmölistan, which published the photo from the demonstration.

The newly-formed Malmö list consists of a large breakaway group from the Communist Party in Malmö that has had enough of the so-called “middle-class left” and its focus on cultural Marxist issues.

“They do not understand why so many workers do not think that multiculturalism, the LGBTQ movement and Greta Thunberg are something fantastic, but think we are in 1930s Germany and that workers who vote SD were infected by some Nazi illness,” said Nils Littorin, who is now the party leader for the Malmö list, to the local newspaper in connection with the mass outflow from the Communist Party in December.

The Tram Trial

Our Dutch correspondent H. Numan follows up on last week’s reports on the Utrecht tram mujahid with additional details and context.

The tram trial

by H. Numan

I’ll expand on this article about Gökmen Tanis, the Utrecht tram killer. First of all, in The Netherlands, like in most western countries, we don’t have the death penalty. We do have life in prison. It is exactly that: you go out with your feet first. The king can grant a royal pardon, but that happens rarely. In the few cases someone has been granted a royal pardon, it was to let them die (usually of old age) outside prison.

As you probably can guess, this doesn’t sit well with our progressives, who want to abolish this “life is for life” sentence. A notorious murderer, Cevdet Ilmaz, received life in prison for killing six people on a shooting spree in a bar in Delft in 1983. Motivation? Someone said he wasn’t a real Dutchman. Which he proved by gunning wildly around him. He’s doing fine in jail, though he constantly asks for a royal pardon. Progressives support his requests, and want him to be able to start ‘rehabilitation training’.

I don’t have a problem with that. Happy to oblige. Here’s a coffin. Go lie down in it. Comfy? No? Try turning to the other side. There you go. You are now fully trained for going outside again. Cevdet was a precocious innovator. Today he would have been a muslim terrorist or a poor victim of discrimination. Back then, only the PLO were muslim terrorists. During the ’70s and ’80s red terrorism was our main problem. The PLO was just a sideshow, though an important one.

Now let’s go back to Gökmen. This piece of excrement was born in 1981 in Turkey and moved with his family to The Netherlands in 1993. His parents divorced in 2008. Gökmen stayed with his mother. He was addicted to hard drugs. In between periods of treatment he became religious. He didn’t have many (or any) friends, and was highly aggressive when using drugs. He lived with his mother in Kanaleneiland, a predominantly muslim ghetto in Utrecht. It is not mentioned anywhere, but read between the lines. I doubt very much if he graduated from primary school, let alone high school. Given his friendly disposition, I very much doubt if he ever did an honest day of work. In other words: from the moment the family migrated he caused nothing but trouble. At great cost to our society.

In 2011 he was interviewed by GeenStijl TV. He told the female interviewer she was a slut and a whore because of her dress. In 2013 he shot at an apartment in Kanaleneiland without hitting anyone. He was convicted of illegal possession of a firearm and sentenced to 150 days in jail, of which he served 49 days.

In 2017 he raped a girl, possibly his girlfriend. A few weeks later he was paroled on conditions. After he broke his parole he was rearrested, but released again when he promised to keep his promises. He had to appeal for that. (At whose cost do you think? His own? Think again.)

In 2019 he went on trial for burglary and theft of a bicycle. The verdict was not yet handed down when our busy young man went on his killing spree in the tram. He aimed specifically at non-muslims. A few witnesses say they stood behind muslims in the tram. That’s why they weren’t targeted, as he couldn’t see them.

But We Identify As Swedes!

State television showcased a Swedish family in Iran who want to go home — not found in public records

March 3, 2020

Yesterday, in a report with an implicit criticism of the Swedish Transport Agency’s decision to stop flights from Iran, state television told of a Swedish family who wanted to return to Stockholm. Samhällsnytt can reveal that the family is missing from the Swedish national accounts.

Following our questions, state television has changed its article. In the original version of the news report saved through the archive service web.archive, it was related that the Swedish named family consisting of Keymar Tatar, Asaf Raoufi and their 14-year-old daughter would return to Stockholm at the end of February. But they are stranded in Iran without any opportunity to get to Sweden.

“If the situation is so serious in Iran and you do not consider the authorities credible here, Sweden should take even greater responsibility in bringing home its citizens who are in this country,” Keymar Tatar tells state television, and believes that the Swedish embassy should assist his family with the trip.

Judging from comments in social media, many readers get the impression that the family was on a shorter holiday trip. But when Samhällsnytt contacts the Swedish Tax Agency, it turns out that neither Keymar Tatar nor Asaf Raoufi are listed in Sweden.

The Coming Elections in the Netherlands

Our Dutch correspondent H. Numan has the latest on the convoluted political situation in his homeland.

The coming elections

by H. Numan

In the UK the Labour party lost massively. Their biggest loss in nearly a century. In America the Democrat party is going to lose even more. The signs are all there. The most important candidate is Bernie Sanders who isn’t even fit to sit in a clown car. Much less to drive it. The man has absolutely no authority whatsoever. I’ve seen clips where his radical supporters grab the microphone out of his hands and totally humiliate themselves. With comrade clown standing next to it. Seething, and not able to do a darn thing about it.

Don’t be mistaken: The other clowns are almost as bad as he is. That’s pretty good news, I think. Even Bloomberg isn’t going anywhere. He can’t help it, he simply has the wrong credentials. Just like a child abuser has to live with his past, so must he. He was not only a strict Republican, he’s also a billionaire. Apart from the fact that he is simply bribing his way to nomination, and gloating that he can do it. Voting fraud is now completely legal in at least California. You can collect all the ballots in a retirement home or a town, fill them in as desired and present them as valid votes.

Even so, Trump is going to win. He doesn’t have to do a thing himself. The clowns do all the hard work for him. I hope the Milwaukee police department is planning for some huge riots. Antifa is not going to accept anyone else but comrade Sanders. They’re going to be very angry, as Sanders will not be elected.

Now, in Holland we’re also heading for elections. Officially we aren’t. Elections are due in March of 2021. That’s a full year in the future. The government is basically finished governing. Their goals have been achieved, or need a different coalition. I have no idea what will cause the resignation of the cabinet, but all parties are gearing up in election mode. The conservatives (VVD) and Christian Democrats (CDA) especially are making very bold statements about fewer migrants, stronger borders and — don’t laugh — less money to the EU. That’s a sure sign elections are coming.

It’ll be a very interesting election. In the recent past, first the Christian Democrats got trashed, followed by the labor party PvdA. In both cases after a long period of governing and a string of broken promises. This election will be the same, only now it’s the VVD’s turn to get trashed. Like their Christian and Labor compatriots earlier, the VVD has governed for a very long time, nearly 12 years continuously. The broken promises of Mark Rutte are legendary. As before people had high hopes during the first Rutte cabinet, which over time lessened. Currently the government is a minority government. The cabinet had a one-seat majority at the start in parliament. They lost that seat last year. In the senate it’s already a minority cabinet.

We’ve seen a massive shift to the left in nearly all parties. We used to have three large parties: a big conservative party (VVD), an even larger center party of Christian Democrats, and a large labor party. All of them moved far to the left. They want to woo young, hip and progressive voters. Nothing wrong with that, but there is a price to pay. There are lots of young people who are not progressive. Most of the not-so-young voters are anything but progressive. The price the formerly big parties have to pay is far fewer voters. They all shrank from their position of the big three to middle of the road. Or in case of the PvdA: that’s now a small party. In Dutch politics anything under 10 seats is small fry, 10-25 is middle of the road and anything above is a big party.

Progressive parties want to create a united left front. That won’t fly, because the PvdA party knows very well that will cost their party whatever seats they have left. Of course GL (former communists) and the SP (former Maoists) are in favor. They would gain the seats lost by the PvdA. Two birds with one stone!

That big gap on the right is being filled by two parties: The PVV party and the new Forum for Democracy (FvD). The PVV currently holds 19 seats, and FvD 2. It’s highly likely both will gain a lot in the coming elections. I expect both to grow to about 30 seats each. However, that is not enough for a majority. They will need 76 seats. That’ll be a problem as both the PVV and FvD parties are boycotted by the others.

In Bosnia, the Barbarians are Inside the Gates

I posted last month about a Serbian-German man named Irfan Peci. I gave a thumbnail bio of him then, but here it is again: Mr. Peci was born in Serbia, and in the early 1990s, when he was still very small, his family moved to Germany to escape the Balkan wars. As a young man he was recruited by the local Al Qaeda affiliate in Germany, and worked for their propaganda organization. He was eventually arrested and imprisoned by the German authorities. While he was still in prison he was de-radicalized, and when he left prison became an undercover agent within Al Qaeda for the German government. After he was exposed, he wrote a book about his experiences and started producing videos.

Mr. Peci understands Bosnian, so he is able to sift through videos and written material from Bosnia and present it to German-speaking audiences. For the following video he compiled a series of clips from Bosnia in which culture-enrichers vandalize property, take part in armed marches, and commit brutal criminal violence, including against each other.

The thousands of migrants now massed in Bosnia are attempting to force their way into Croatia, after which they will be in the EU, and can then proceed through Slovenia and Austria to get to the Promised Land in Germany.

Stop Me Before I Vote Again!

The title of this post is an ironic slogan from the 1980s. It was coined to mock the “term limits” movement, which was (and is) a push to restrict senators, congressmen, and other elected politicians to a fixed, small number of terms in office.

The idea of term limits is absurd on the face of it. Just think — its proponents want to pass a law to prevent people from voting for someone they might otherwise prefer to vote for. And expect sitting politicians to pass legislation that would shortly put them out of office — how likely is that? As a strategy for civic improvement it seems at best quixotic, and at worst authoritarian.

Yet I can sympathize with the movement’s advocates. Once they are firmly ensconced in office, congressbeings continue for decade after decade. They accumulate power and perks, become part of the corrupt D.C. apparatus, and cease to represent the interests of their constituents. Name recognition, face time on TV talk shows, and the franking privilege — the perk that allows them to spam their constituents as much as they like via the U.S. Mail without having to pay postage — give them a leg up against any upstarts who might challenge their sinecures.

To attempt to fix this corrupt system with term limits would be analogous to putting a band-aid on a sucking chest wound. The problem is far deeper and more systemic than can be corrected with yet more freedom-limiting legislation. Something in our social and political systems is obviously badly broken.

A similar process is underway in Western Europe. Even though the situation there is quite different from the bizarre political circus on this side of the Atlantic, the two political cultures have a major commonality: the political elites remain firmly entrenched in power without regard for the interests of the electorate. And yet that same electorate keeps voting for them over and over again in Europe, just as American voters do here.

This phenomenon first drew my attention back in the 1980s, when I read the results of opinion polls on mass immigration. Voters were (and are) overwhelmingly opposed to mass immigration. A substantial proportion of them considered it an extremely important issue. Back then it seemed a wonderful opportunity for some savvy politician to take up the issue as a means to gain elected office. Yet it was another thirty years before Donald Trump beat the odds to get elected president, and even then it was with a minority of the popular vote.

Immigration is the most prominent issue in the populist program, but there are many more — gay marriage, gun control, the push to completely cleanse the public square of religion, and other battlefronts in the culture wars. Voters have strong opinions about those things, but for some reason keep voting for politicians that ignore their concerns.

What’s going on here? Why don’t they ever throw the rascals out?

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

Over at Western Rifle Shooters they have a slogan: “There Is No Voting Our Way Out of This”, or TINVOWOOT for short. Empirically speaking, that seems to be the case: the rascals remain in power and continue their rascally ways, election after election.

Strictly speaking, however, voters do have the power to change their leadership. The German people can still mark their ballots for the AfD, and if enough of them did so, the political situation in the country would change dramatically. But that doesn’t happen. Despite their opinion about immigration (as revealed by opinion polls) voters keep voting for the same old establishment parties, all of which support the importation of migrants. In Germany, TINVOWOOT is definitely the rule.

Last September, when I was interviewed by José Atento in Quebec, he asked me what I would advise people to do in order to reverse the Islamization of the West. I said, “The steps [that should be] taken are the same as everywhere: the people should vote for somebody else than the people they are usually voting for. But they don’t…”

For more than I decade I’ve been emphasizing that Islam is not the problem. It is simply a virulent pathogen that is taking advantage of a severely weakened host. Our political and cultural leaders are enabling the destruction of our societies by Muslims.

Yet those treasonous politicians and media snoids are not the problem, either. We, the voters of the West, keep putting those politicians in power. And we, the media consumers of the West, keep turning on the TV and listening to the talking heads who explain to us why all of this is a good and moral thing. In the USA — where media outlets depend on viewership to maintain their advertising revenues — the viewers tune in to the propaganda in sufficient numbers to keep MassMediaCorp awash in cash.

Once again, what’s going on here? Why do we keep doing these foolish things?
