The Veiling of the Cross

A cemetery in Bologna has started covering up the crosses in a chapel whenever non-Christians (presumably mostly Muslims) hold ceremonies there. From what I can gather based on the video and the article, the chapel also functions as a crypt, and each of the locations in the wall where the remains of loved ones are interred is marked with the symbol that people find so offensive.

I find the following statement by the Cardinal of Florence to be very instructive: “The transformation of Western societies into multi-ethnic, multicultural, and multi-religious societies is a fact and a future that inevitably awaits us.”

The transformation of Western societies is only “inevitable” because decision-makers at the highest level have decided not to avoid, stop, or prevent it. If it were not deemed expedient by the Powers That Be, then the transformation would never have been allowed to take place.

Crosses in Italian Cemetery Covered to Avoid Offence to Other Religions

The cemetery, which is located in Bologna in a town of around 7,000 people, has also installed motorised blackout curtains in a local chapel following renovations to hide Roman Catholic symbols during ceremonies involving other denominations, Il Giornale reports.

Following the reports of the coverings of the symbols, many have expressed criticism including Forza Italia (Forward Italy) deputy Galeazzo Bignami who denounced the move saying those looking not to offend were disrespecting Christian values and he added, “even more so the memory of our dead, hiding them behind ‘motorised tents’ in a cemetery to avoid offending other religions.”

“If the administrators are ashamed of our tradition and our culture, they should go and hide themselves and not just behind a motorised tent. If they are not able to bring respect for the living at least they have the decency to leave the dead alone and not involve them in foolishness,” he added. …

The Archbishop of Florence has announced he will be selling 86,000 square feet of property to a Muslim group in order for them to build a mosque in Sesto Fiorentino.

Cardinal of Florence, Giuseppe Betori, approved of the sale saying, “The transformation of Western societies into multi-ethnic, multicultural, and multi-religious societies is a fact and a future that inevitably awaits us.”

In the northern city of Bergamo, another Muslim association has spent nearly half a million euros on an old church, which they also plan to convert into a mosque.

The Nihilism of Emmanuel Macron

The following video by Maxime Lépante juxtaposes the Notre Dame fire with a couple of clips of President Emmanuel “Toy Boy” Macron denying the existence of French art and culture.

When I first heard Mr. Macron’s words, they seemed familiar, and I eventually recalled what they reminded me of — Mona Sahlin, at that time an MP for the Social Democrats in Sweden, speaking to a Turkish youth organization in 2002:

I cannot figure out what Swedish culture is. I think that’s what makes many Swedes jealous of immigrant groups. You have a culture, an identity, a history, something that brings you together. And what do we have? We have Midsummer’s Eve and such silly things.

As an alternative label for Mr. Macron’s and Ms. Sahlin’s nihilistic sentiments, Dymphna coined a new word: “Erasism”.

The Crucifixion of Roger Scruton: Britain’s Pivotal Moment

Paul Weston gores the Pygmie Left in the once-great Britain:

I didn’t realize until now that many of Paul’s videos have been taken down. Do you see why we need what those alternatives to YOOTube have to offer? Bitchute, etc., are slow, but as they move out of beta mode look for improvement. It will come with usage.

Read and weep for the death of Truth and Beauty…and yes, the murder of Goodness while we’re at it. Is England’s karma catching up with its history? Even I do not wish on Britain such a fate.

Still Criminal After All These Years

It has been nearly eight years since Fjordman was driven into hiding by the uproar over the massacre by Anders Behring Breivik in Oslo and on the island of Utøya. The killer’s 1,500-page “manifesto” was packed with references to and quotes from the Counterjihad movement, with Fjordman and Robert Spencer heading the list.

The apparatchiks of the Legacy Culture — not just in the media, but academics, politicians, and public intellectuals — were unwilling to let a crisis go to waste. They let loose with both barrels against those of us who resist the Islamization of our societies. Since Gates of Vienna was Fjordman’s most frequent venue, we were drawn into the media frenzy along with the major players. Our fifteen minutes of fame went on for months, and I can’t tell you how glad we were when the furor finally died down.

When the uproar was at its height in early August of 2011, someone suggested to me that I might want to shut Gates of Vienna down to protect myself. I said, “[Epithet redacted] that! I’m not shutting anything down!” My Scottish blood comes to the fore whenever hostile forces poke at me, and my default response is always defiance.

I’m glad we decided to keep on with it, and follow the Breivik saga as it unfolded. The Butcher of Utøya was tried the following spring, convicted, and sentenced to the maximum prison term that Norwegian law allows — twenty-one years. He was eventually ensconced in a well-appointed prison suite, from which he issued occasional proclamations and demands via his lawyers.

A coda of sorts was provided in the fall of 2013, when Mr. Breivik sent a letter to various outlets of the mainstream media. In it he confessed that his devotion to the Counterjihad had been a hoax concocted to draw the blame away from his true allies, the “nordicist” movement — i.e. the neo-Nazis.

Strangely enough, Breivik’s confession received virtually no attention in the media. If it weren’t for the hard-left Swedish site Expo, we never would have been aware of it. We were fortunate to be able to obtain a copy of the letter (PDF), and posted it so that anyone who was interested could take a look.

But there weren’t many people interested in the fact that Breivik was actually a Nazi who held the milquetoasts of the Counterjihad in disdain. The media weren’t about to acknowledge that their Narrative had been utterly false. They had no intention of taking responsibility for ruining the reputations, careers, and lives of the people they had slandered. None of that was of any importance — the Narrative must go on.

Bruce Bawer has published a retrospective on the whole sorry affair at FrontPage Mag. Below are some excerpts:

Enemy of the People

Norway is still treating Peder “Fjordman” Jensen as a criminal.

by Bruce Bawer
April 16, 2019

Since 9/11, thousands of deadly jihadist atrocities, big and small, have taken place around the world. Almost uniformly, the Western media totally ignore the small ones, and also ignore the big ones that take place in Israel, the Muslim world, and non-Western locations generally. As for the large-scale terrorist acts that occur from time to time in major Western cities — that is to say, the attacks that are too massive and too close to home for the media to get away with ignoring — the mainstream journalists who cover them devote a good deal of their time to tiptoeing around, or openly and vociferously denying, the connection between these actions and the religion of Islam. Indeed, it is by now an indelible part of the media narrative in these instances that the real victims — or the first victims, or the ultimate victims — of jihadist terror are the members of Western Muslim communities who, we are repeatedly told, have been unfairly stigmatized ever since September 11, 2001, and who, in the wake of every new act of Islamic terror in the West, experience, or at least tremble in fear of, a fresh, powerful, and unjustified anti-Muslim backlash. Virtually never does any mainstream Western journalist ever acknowledge that jihadists, when they massacre infidel men, women, and children, are following explicit instructions set down in the Koran — the book that every believing Muslim on earth considers holy. Even now, going on eighteen years after 9/11, some journalists honestly don’t know that jihad comes right out the Koran; others do know, but would never publicly connect these dots. Neither would most politicians or media commentators or supposed “experts” in Islam. For to do so would be to violate the most important unwritten commandment of the post-9/11 Western world: namely, thou shalt not admit that those who commit murder in the name of Allah, far from being traitors to their faith, are, on the contrary, the most obedient of its adherents.

The media have done a remarkable job of keeping the lid on this truth. One of the few times in recent years when someone let it out of the box in a big way was on June 20, 2017, when Tommy Robinson, appearing as a guest on Good Morning, Britain, suddenly held up a copy of the Koran, sending the show’s host, Piers Morgan, into an instant, and palpable, panic: “Show some respect!” Piers insisted. “There are,” Tommy replied, “a hundred verses in this book inciting violence and murder against us.” Piers repeated, with a rare urgency, plainly rooted in trepidation: “Show some damn respect for people’s religious beliefs!” Tommy asked why he should be expected to “respect a book that incites murder against me.” “Put it down!” Piers again demanded, unwilling to answer a question that, in fact, answered itself. Tommy, refusing to put the book down, proceeded to quote critical remarks about Islam by prime ministers William Gladstone and Winston Churchill. Meanwhile Piers tried desperately to talk over him, calling him “a bigoted lunatic” and an “Islamophobe” and accusing him of “doing something deliberately inflammatory and poisonous” and “stirring up hatred.” Forcefully, Tommy countered: “This book is the reason we’re in such a mess!” Piers rejected this plain fact, feebly asserting that “terrorists abuse the nature of Islam” — a statement that made no sense whatsoever — and as Tommy began to read aloud a Koranic verse calling on believers to murder infidels, the segment was brought to an abrupt end. One can only imagine the sheer panic in the control room.

[…]

Before March 15, 2019, there was July 22, 2011, when Anders Behring Breivik exploded a truck bomb outside a government office building in Oslo and then shot up dozens of teenagers at a Labor Party youth camp on the nearby island of Utøya — his professed motive being to punish the politicians whom he considered responsible for the Islamization of Norway as well as the future politicians who would inherit the philosophies, policies, privileges, and powers of today’s Labor leaders. Before Breivik headed out that day to commit mass murder, he posted online a lengthy “manifesto” that was part history, part political commentary, and part instruction manual for those whom he imagined would join him in his crusade. Much of this document, it turned out, consisted of texts by other people that Breivik had lifted without permission. The person whose writings Breivik made the most extensive use of was a young Norwegian named Peder Jensen, who had written many sober and learned essays about Islam under the name “Fjordman.” Peder had attended the universities of Bergen and Oslo and the American University in Cairo, learned Arabic, earned a master’s degree with a thesis on Internet censorship in Iran, and was part of a civilian observer mission on the West Bank in 2002-3. He planned a diplomatic career, only to discover that his frankness about Islam was not welcome at the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. He then became a prolific writer on the subject. Unlike the Koran, however, Peder’s oeuvre contained not a single word calling for action of the sort of which Breivik was guilty. But that didn’t matter to the apologists for Islam in the Norwegian establishment. Immediately Peder was lumped in with Breivik and, to a very large extent, held responsible for his crimes. Other critics of Islam, myself included, were tarred with the same brush, but Peder got the worst of it by far.

What are the Electoral Prospects for the German Socialist Party?

Katarina Barley is a member of the SPD (Socialist Party of Germany), which is a partner in the “Grand Coalition” with Angela Merkel and the CDU. Ms. Barley is currently Minister of Justice, and is an SPD candidate in next month’s elections for the European Parliament.

In the following interview Ms. Barley answers questions about the upcoming elections, as well as various questions about the SPD’s domestic policies. She deftly dodges the most difficult questions, but a few of her answers are worth noting. Most significantly: she considers anyone who supports the existence of sovereign nation states to be an “enemy of Europe”.

Also: she thinks the call for a 2% increase in spending on NATO to be far too much, more of a financial load than the country could possibly bear.

Of Brainwashing and Bathwater

MC weighs in on all the latest trendy socialist initiatives that plague the 21st-century body politic in the West.

Of Brainwashing and Bathwater

by MC

The idea of child abuse is defined by a Christian doctrine based upon the words of Yahushua (Jesus), “Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” It goes on to explain that those who meddle with these children of the kingdom will suffer a fate so bad that they should drown themselves.

It is quite graphic and it is inbuilt into the Christian culture.

So, if we step outside the Christian culture we need to beware, for many a baby is thrown out when we vote for either Islam or humanism.

In the period following the Russian revolution in 1917 we have some graphic accounts of child abuse. Maxim Gorky (or maybe Orlando Figes quoting Gorky) describes starving little girls lifting up their skirts and exposing themselves in the hope of attracting the attention of someone who could give them a crust of bread in return for favours. These children were just the useless human rubble left in the street after the purging of the class enemy. They were “useless eaters”, as Adolf called them in his identical revolution two decades later.

The various socialist revolutions discarded (or worse) many children, for Karl Marx wrote no scriptures specifically about protecting children.

I have never understood Ali Bakr (the first Caliph after the prophet) giving his six year old daughter to a man he must have known to be a sexual predator, but then there is no protection for children in Islam either.

When we step away from Judeo-Christianity we leave behind some very profound doctrines.

The French revolution started as a revolt against the abuses of the Aristocracy and Church leaders who had abandoned their calling at the behest of those same Aristos, for they believed that the ten commandments no longer applied to those of the ‘important’ bloodlines; they were only for the peasants.

In the power vacuum that followed the storming of the Bastille, a series of new political religions based upon humanism and the goddess of reason took hold, so the tumbrels rumbled, the drums rolled — as did the heads of the many of the innocent — and children starved.

The Ten Commandments and other Judeo-Christian principles establish a framework that has worked and has produced a working environment which, although not perfect, has created a peak of civilization, and it is only in a civilized state that child abuse can even be defined.

But socialists, of course, think they can do better, and that by demolishing the house built on rock, they can replace it with something more fair and more equal but built on the sands of toleration and moral relativity. And that this time it will not fail like on every other occasion man has experimented with self-godship.

What they cannot seem to understand is that it was Judeo-Christianity that was the real healing and beneficial revolution, and that it is their new socialism that is the same old, same old cruelty and abuse.

Culture-Enriching Ructions in Copenhagen

Rasmus Paludan is a Danish anti-Islam activist who has appeared in this space a number of times with various provocations in Vollsmose, Nørrebro, and other culturally enriched neighborhoods in Denmark. The Danish government recently made Koran-burning legal, and Mr. Paludan has been holding Koran-burning events (and other “Islamophobic” street theater) as a result. In his most recent provocation he was just warming up for the main event by tossing a Koran around when Muslims began rioting against him. He attempted to move his demonstration to another location, but the rioting and car-burning became even worse. Eventually the police forbade him to demonstrate anywhere, labeling him a danger to the public peace.

In the following interview Rasmus Paludan describes what happened last weekend in various parts of Copenhagen. Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for conducting the interview:

The Desecration of the Basilica of Saint-Denis

Vandalizing and torching churches has become a popular pastime lately in France. The ethnicity of the perpetrators is often unknown, but one always suspects that cultural enrichment plays a part.

Which is definitely the case with the recently-arrived Pakistani who left his DNA while vandalizing the Basilica of Saint-Denis. Oz-Rita has translated an article about the appearance of the “youth” in court.

Translator’s notes:

St. Denis is nearly exclusively inhabited now by Arabs/Muslims/Blacks — a no-go zone. The Basilica of Saint-Denis is the final resting place of the Kings of France.

The translated article from Le Parisien:

Saint-Denis: the alleged vandal of the Basilica will be judged in May

[Photo caption: The accused is suspected of damaging two doors, several stained glass windows and the organ of the Basilica of Saint-Denis at the beginning of March. LP/Gwenael Bumblebee]

A 41-year-old man appeared this Friday before the Court in Bobigny on charges of damaging the organ in the Basilica. The hearing has been postponed until May 10.

A dialogue of the deaf. “I don’t know how I’m involved in this case,” the defendant told the Bobigny court on Friday. Suspected of damaging two doors, several stained glass windows and the organ of the Basilica of Saint-Denis in March, this 41-year-old man is being brought to trial for an immediate appearance.

When asked whether he would prefer to postpone the date of his trial to prepare his defence, as provided for in the procedure, he replied that he “does not understand the French judicial system.”

Incriminated by his DNA

The 40-year-old was arrested on Thursday at the detention centre in Vincennes (Val-de-Marne), incriminated by his DNA found in the Basilica. A Pakistani national, he arrived in France two months ago and does not speak French. He has already been cautioned by the law twice for damaging property in February.

Annoyed, the president of the court suggests that “the situation is not very difficult to understand” and reiterates her question. “How can I explain if I don’t understand it?” he persists.

Pre-trial detention

The magistrate ended up wondering whether he “deliberately did not understand”. The court finally decided to postpone the trial until 10 May, and to place the accused in pre-trial detention until that date.

A psychiatric assessment was ordered.

Multiculturalism Claims Another Victim

Multiculturalism claims another victim

by H. Numan

Something big in the news in Thailand and Germany: a female German tourist was brutally raped and murdered on the lovely island of Koh Chang in Thailand. The victim was Mariam Beelte, 27. Her body was discovered under a pile of stone. Her rapist and murderer was a Thai man, Ronnakorn Romruen, 24. He has admitted his crime. He was strongly under the influence of methamphetamine, which has been confirmed by tests. In other words: he was high as a kite. He’s currently under arrest and may very well face the death penalty. The latter is not reported in Germany.

Yesterday I spoke with a German friend who asked me if Thailand has become more dangerous over the last five years. Because that is being reported by the Reichsministerium für Volksaufklärung und Propaganda the German media.

No, it hasn’t. Not noticeably so. Much unlike Western Europe, which is fast going doing the drain. I haven’t been there for a long time — and very much hope to not be there for a long time to come. Far too dangerous, far too dirty and generally very unsafe. Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Rome or Madrid. It doesn’t matter. Those cities are highly unsafe now. However, multiculturalism is the cure for all problems, so that cannot be it. Therefore, Thailand must have become much more unsafe. And that is widely reported.

Before I moved to Thailand 25 years ago I read anything I could find about it. So I would understand the country I was moving to. Travel guides, books written by people living there, history books, anything. Most of them warned travelers to be very careful. Thailand, they said, was a very safe country provided you stay on the beaten track. Leave that well-trodden path, and you’re on your own. Women in particular were cautioned never to travel alone, and especially not in remote areas.

Nothing to do with Thai men in particular, mind you. All travel guides included this caution. A woman traveling alone at night on a deserted beach wasn’t asking for trouble, but screaming for it. Thailand, Spain, Portugal, Africa, even boring old Germany and Holland — anywhere. A woman alone shouldn’t travel off the beaten path. That’s simply asking for trouble.

And then came multiculturalism. Together with its evil sister extreme feminism. Women can do anything they want. Provided it pays well, and the top positions only. Otherwise we aren’t really interested. Only white men do nasty things. They are the source of all evil — down with the male patriarchy! All cultures are equal, people are generally good, friendly and nice. The world is your unicorn.

Those warnings disappeared from the guides. Because those ‘liberated’ women felt restrained by it. They couldn’t do what they wanted — which probably is getting shag… silly. Traditional values are so old fashioned. If a woman wants a tattoo, she expresses her individuality! Forgetting that when everyone gets tattooed is more a kind of a uniform and the very opposite of individuality.

French Police Gas Kids at the Playground and Beat Them at Burger King

The following videos show two separate incidents of police brutality in France during last weekend’s Yellow Vest demonstrations. Many thanks to Ava Lon for the translations, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling.

WARNING: Both these videos, but particularly the first one, may be disturbing to sensitive viewers, who are advised to skip them and simply read the transcripts.

The first video was recorded during a Yellow Vest demonstration in the city of Nantes in Brittany. The protest was close to a public park where a “fun fair” for children was taking place. The police shot gas (presumably tear gas) at the demonstrators, and inadvertently gassed the children on a merry-go-round. Towards the end of this clip you can see people helping a little girl who was incapacitated by the gas:

The second video records events at a Burger King during the demonstration. The exact location in France is not clear. In it you see several young people trapped at the back of the restaurant, lying helplessly on the floor while riot police beat them with batons:
