Poland’s Breivik Moment?

On Sunday, while he was onstage at a charity event, the mayor of Gdańsk was stabbed, and later died. Green Infidel, who translated a video of the incident, describes what happened:

On Sunday January 13 the mayor of the northern Polish city of Gdańsk (known for being the home of the Solidarity movement), Paweł Adamowicz, was stabbed on stage while live on TV in a large-scale nationwide annual charity concert. The knifeman somehow made his way on to the stage at the same time as the mayor was present (apparently the assailant managed to obtain a press pass). He proceeded to knife the mayor, then took time to walk around the stage with his arms raised, and even addressed the crowd to say he had “just killed” the mayor, before finally he was tackled to the ground.

The wounds suffered by the mayor were serious — apparently he was stabbed close to the heart, and on Monday afternoon (January 14), after many hours fighting for his life in hospital, he was pronounced dead.

The video below captures the surreal moment of the knifing (at 0:17, the knifeman runs from left to right on the stage, presumably to stab Mr Adamowicz, before running back and then standing on the stage with his arms raised in the air, before addressing the crowd, which was totally oblivious to what had just happened).

It’s hard to see what happens onstage in the video — even the audience is unaware of the attack until well after it happens.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Here’s a BBC article about the attack.

The big question now is what sort of ripples the tragic incident will cause in Polish politics. Green Infidel adds this further analysis:

Paweł Adamowicz, the mayor of Gdańsk for more than twenty years, and the recipient of numerous “mayor of the year” awards, was known for being a big fan of accepting “refugees” and promoting Multiculturalism, and was a strong opponent of the governing Law and Justice Party.

There’s nothing to suggest this was the motive — the knifeman on the stage, known only as Stefan W., said he was “unfairly imprisoned by the former Civic Platform government. This is why Adamowicz has just now been killed.” He was apparently released from prison around a month ago, after a five-year sentence for armed robberies of two banks, and had also received psychiatric treatment.

Nonetheless, as Adamowicz was such a big opponent of the Law and Justice party, this is bound to have repercussions. Fingers are already being pointed at the Right for fomenting a “climate of hate”, especially Polish state TV, TVP, which had run many news segments attacking Adamowicz. Also, this happened at the “Great Orchestra of Christmas help”, a charity event which raises money for equipment for causes such as children’s’ hospitals, but which is organised and promoted by prominent leftists, and attacked by many on the Right as being hostile to Christian values (the head of the campaign, Jerzy Owsiak, has given statements supporting euthanasia and abortion rights, and runs Woodstock, an annual hippie-style concert in Poland).

As such, this may well be a significant moment in Poland, especially during an election year…

Now we’ll just wait and see what happens. Green Infidel will keep us informed.

Katie & the Wolff Get the Brush-Off From the Mayor of Oulu

Katie Hopkins and Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff — who now comprise the team known as Katie & the Wolff — are currently in Finland to investigate and report on the “grooming gang” problem that is now surging in the country.

The city of Oulu, on the Gulf of Bothnia in northern Finland, is known as the rape capital of Finland. Needless to say, most of the rapists of underage girls are culture-enrichers.

Katie & the Wolff attempted to meet with the mayor of Oulu, but were fobbed off on a subordinate. Afterwards they talked to the camera about what had just occurred.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for editing and uploading this video:

After the two met with the mayor’s representative, Katie Hopkins was interviewed by YLE, the Finnish state broadcaster. It’s a standard progressive state media outlet, roughly the equivalent of the BBC or the CBC. We don’t have anything analogous in the USA, but CNN would be a close enough match.

It’s unlikely that YLE will ever actually broadcast the interview. However, our Finnish correspondent KGS was there with his video camera, so what Ms. Hopkins said about Rotherham North will not be lost to posterity. Here’s the recording KGS uploaded to his YouTube channel:

Katie & the Wolff: A Report From Rotherham North

The problem of “grooming gangs” that became notorious in major cities of the UK has now spread to culturally enriched parts of Finland, especially Oulu and Helsinki.

Katie Hopkins and Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff have teamed up as “Katie & the Wolff”. They arrived last night in Finland, and their first video report is from Helsinki.

Ms. Hopkins sends this introduction:

Finland has a problem with grooming gangs.

After months of media silence and Establishment suppression of information, finally the sexual abuse and rape of young Finish girls is making headlines.

First in Oulu — where eight migrant men have been charged with the abuse of children as young as ten. And now in the capital Helsinki, three migrant men have been arrested for the sexual abuse of minors.

If the experiences of Rotherham in the U.K. teach us anything, this will be just the tip of the iceberg. And those who seek to protect the migrants are complicit in their crimes.

Rape gangs are sophisticated, operations — co-ordinated and networked throughout the country.

The Prime Minister said, “The number is victims is not exceptional — for example, five children are molested every day in Finland.”

It is precisely this kind of attitude that is part of the problem. Katie & the Wolff have travelled to Finland to tell the truths not being told.

The Canadian Government Moves to Crack Down on Internet Dissent

It seems that the Canadian government is looking to suppress what remains of independent journalism in the country by further regulating content on the Internet. The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) — which is melded with the CBC in some mysterious fashion — has submitted its recommendations to the government for changes to legislation governing telecommunications and media in Canada.

Ezra Levant thinks they will use it to shut Rebel Media down:

CRTC wants legislation to optimize competition, encourage CanCon, enable affordable access

Canada’s telecom watchdog has filed a preliminary submission to the Broadcasting and Telecommunications Legislative Review Panel

By Sameer Chhabra, MobileSyrup.com
January 10, 2019

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) has formally filed a preliminary submission to the panel responsible for reviewing the country’s broadcasting and telecommunications laws.

The CRTC’s January 10th, 2019 filing comes one day before the January 11th deadline, and urges that any new telecom legislation proposed by the Broadcasting and Telecommunications Legislative Review panel should focus on “outcomes that will benefit Canadians in an era of hyper-connectivity by optimizing competition, enabling affordable and innovative services and extending these services and the facilities necessary to access them across the country.”

The Commission’s use of the phrase “optimizing” is explained by its belief that “varying degrees of competition” have already been introduced to Canada’s telecom market.

The submission filed by Canada’s telecom watchdog also outlined recommendations for changes to Canada’s broadcasting framework, referencing points raised in the Commission’s May 2018 programming distribution report.

According to the CRTC, new broadcasting legislation should encourage the production and consumption of Canadian content (CanCon), while also ensuring that all participants in the country’s broadcasting industry should “participate in appropriate and equitable—though not necessarily identical—ways to benefit Canadians and Canada.”

A lengthier report was published by The Star. Some excerpts are below:

‘Smarter’ rules would ensure all digital players pay for CanCon, panel told

By Terry Pedwell
The Canadian Press
Friday, January 11, 2019

OTTAWA — Federal lawmakers need to make foreign content providers, such as Netflix, YouTube and Amazon Prime, pay their fair share into producing Canadian content, Canada’s broadcast regulator and its public broadcaster argued this week.

What that share looks like, however, remains uncertain as the federal government moves to tear down and rebuild the country’s broadcast and telecom regulations.

In written submissions to a seven-member panel, both the CRTC and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation also called on Ottawa to create new rules that encourage news content distributors to deliver accurate and trustworthy information to Canadians.

The submissions, which were due Friday, are part of a wide-scale review of Canada’s Broadcasting Act, Telecommunications Act and Radiocommunication Act that was started last June by a panel of experts chaired by former Telus Corp. executive Janet Yale.

[…]

“What we’re asking for are new and different powers to regulate in a different way,” Scott said in an interview with The Canadian Press. “It doesn’t mean more regulation. It means smarter, better, flexible regulation. A new toolbox.”

The CRTC has asked for explicit statutory authority and flexible mechanisms to regulate audio and video services, both foreign and domestic, including online.

That would help the regulator ensure that any service provider making money from Canadian viewers and listeners also somehow pays toward the creation and distribution of Canadian content, as domestic broadcast companies do now.

Currently, traditional broadcasters in Canada contribute millions of dollars to bodies including the Canada Media Fund and directly pay for original Canadian productions.

But a shift by Canadians to viewing content online has eaten away at funding models that rely on subscriptions and advertising revenue.

Scott said regulators need the authority to reach agreements with new digital platforms to ensure they contribute “equitably” to the creation of that content.

[…]

The CBC’s submission Friday was nearly identical in tone, saying the government needs to ensure that digital companies profiting from the Canadian cultural marketplace also help pay for the creation of Canadian programming.

It also called for mechanisms to ensure Canadians have access to “trusted news and information” through entities including Google and Facebook.

I tracked down the PDF of the “CBC/Radio-Canada submission to the Broadcasting and Telecommunications Legislative Review Panel” at the CBC website. It’s a monster at 46 pages and 29MB; however, most of that space is taken up by lavish color graphics, so it’s not quite as long as it seems. There’s also a lot of repetition; nevertheless, the core material consists of dense PC/MC bureaucratic bumf that demands a lot of determination and caffeine to slog through.

I’ve only made a preliminary survey of the contents, and will simply present some of the highlights here. First, the Executive Summary:

Let the Tumbrels Roll!

French Interior Minister Christophe Castaner raised the stakes in the rhetorical war within France by asserting that anyone who participates in a Yellow Vest demonstration is complicit with any violence that is committed by some of the demonstrators.

Marine Le Pen, the leader of Rassemblement National (National Rally, formerly Front National), responded by reminding Mr. Castaner of the collective French memory of what happens when political leaders travel down this road —bringing to mind images of the tumbrels rolling to the guillotine.

Viktor Orbán: “The Liberals Are the Enemy of Freedom Today in Europe”

Earlier this week Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán gave a press conference following a meeting with his cabinet. The night before last we posted a subtitled one-minute excerpt from his remarks. The full press conference was more than two hours long.

In an epic effort, CrossWare has translated Mr. Orbán’s opening remarks, plus selected questions — ones that are relevant to a non-Hungarian audience — and the prime minister’s responses.

Long-time readers know that I consider Viktor Orbán to be a titan among European political figures. If he were the leader of, say, Germany or France, he would be able to change the course of history. And he still may be able to do so, even as the prime minister of a country as tiny as Hungary.

In his remarks Mr. Orbán discusses four major topics, all of them related to mass migration:

1.   “Liberal” democracies promote mass migration. They are also in the forefront of those who would suppress any opposition to mass migration, and they attempt to interfere with or subvert other democracies that have decided against it.
2.   Europe is in the process of dividing itself into two civilizations, one consisting of countries that have admitted large numbers of mostly Muslim migrants, the other of countries that have rejected mass immigration. Mr. Orbán refers to the former as a “mixed civilization” consisting of Islamic and (formerly) Christian components. In contrast, the Central European civilization will remain Christian, even while protecting its religious minorities.
3.   For the “mixed” civilization there is no going back. It cannot be unmixed.
4.   The pressure of migration from Africa and Asia is increasing, and will continue for decades. The issue will dominate European politics during that time.
 

Some of the questions and parts of Mr. Orbán’s answers were in English. They are not included in the transcript, but you can hear them in the video. The questions have been translated by CrossWare in a condensed form, so that the original Hungarian is sometimes clearly much longer than the subtitled précis.

Surgeon Offers a Second Opinion on Frank Magnitz’ Wounds

In the following interview posted by the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany), a surgeon named Dieter Neuendorf presents his opinions on the head wounds suffered by Bremen AfD chairman Frank Magnitz. Dr. Neuendorf does not see the largest wound as being consistent with simply falling to the pavement, but says it could only have been caused by receiving a blow to the head with a blunt object.

What Really Happened to Frank Magnitz in Bremen?

Police in Bremen have now released excerpts from CCTV footage of the vicious attack on Frank Magnitz, the local chairman of the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany), which occurred on Monday night in Bremen.

Instead of the standalone CCTV footage I’ve embedded Vlad’s composite video, which begins with an MSM hit piece against the AfD. This “news” report aired on Radio Bremen, which is the local franchise of ARD, the German state broadcaster. As you can see, all the reporters and “experts” are unanimous in their negative appraisal of the AfD, and are determined to downplay what happened in Bremen on Monday night.

Listen to what they have to say, and then watch the CCTV footage. An important portion of the sequence of events is missing: we don’t see what the first man does to Mr. Magnitz before the figures appear at the bottom of the camera’s field of view. After that two men knock the victim to the ground.

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

The following report by Egri Nök was published earlier today at Vlad Tepes in a slightly different form.

Brazil Withdraws From the UN Migration Pact

Newly-inaugurated Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has made good on his promise to withdraw from the UN’s “Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration”.

The first of the two videos below was recorded on December 18, before Mr. Bolsonaro was inaugurated. The second is a news report that was posted yesterday.

The article below from O Globo (also translated by Lei Islâmica em Ação) reports on Brazil’s withdrawal from the UN migration pact:

BBC News: In a statement to diplomats, Bolsonaro government confirms exit from UN migration pact

In a telegram sent to missions abroad, Itamaraty [the Foreign Ministry] says that the country will not participate in the agreement signed in December and that it establishes guidelines for the reception of immigrants; for NGOs, the decision is ‘extremely regrettable’ and does not take into account the situation of Brazilians living abroad.

In a telegram issued on Tuesday (January 8), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs asked Brazilian diplomats to inform the United Nations that Brazil had left the Global Compact for Migration, which the country had joined in December, at the end of the Michel Temer government.

BBC News Brazil gained access to the document in which the Ministry requests the missions of Brazil at the UN and in Geneva to “inform, by note, respectively, the Secretary General of the United Nations and the Director General of the International Migration Organization, in addition to any other interlocutors considered relevant, that Brazil dissociates itself from the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration.”

The document also says that Brazil should not “participate in any activity related to the pact or its implementation”.

Although requested, Itamaraty did not confirm the information until the publication of this report. However, diplomats told BBC News Brazil on condition of anonymity that the telegram is circulating within the Ministry system and reached the addressees.

In recent weeks President Jair Bolsonaro and Foreign Minister Ernesto Araújo had already announced on Twitter that the country would leave the pact. Araújo called it an “inadequate instrument to deal with the (migratory) problem,” arguing that “immigration should not be treated as a global issue, but rather according to the reality and sovereignty of each country.”

Vicious Political Violence on the Streets of Bremen

The following report by Egri Nök was published earlier tonight at Vlad Tepes in a slightly different form. The photo of the badly wounded member of the Bundestag was too graphic to repost here — interested readers may see it at Vlad’s place.

Germany: AfD MP Brutally Attacked By Masked Assailants — Vlad Tepes

by Egri Nök

Leftist political violence seems to be escalating in Germany. Member of Bundestag, and AfD Bremen chairman Frank Magnitz was attacked by three masked assailants earlier tonight when he was leaving a New Year’s event at a theater.

This comes just a few days after an arson attack on the Federal Court of Leipzig for which Antifa have claimed responsibility, and after an explosion rocked an AfD office in Döbeln. The perpetrators of this attack are still on the run.

The original police press release:

Polizei Bremen
POL-HB: Nr. 0019 — Attack on member of Bundestag and AfD Bremen chairman
07.01.2019 — 19:55

Location: Goetheplatz, 28203 Bremen
Time: 07.01.2019, around 17:20 h

On 07.01.2019, around 17:20h, at the theater at Goetheplatz Square, the member of Bundestag and AfD chairman was attacked and wounded by several persons. Due to the victim’s office, the attack is probably politically motivated. The state police and the Federal Prosecutor Bremen opened investigations.

Police are urgently looking for witnesses: Who witnessed the incident near Goetheplatz Square? Who can give clues? Witnesses are asked to contact criminal police at phone no 0421 362-3888.

Cologne: Not Your Father’s Silvesternacht

Silvesternacht (New Year’s Eve) in Cologne was a bang-up affair in more ways than one. And no fun for the police.

MissPiggy, who translated the report below, describes the piece as follows:

This is a post written by someone who knows a German police officer. In it he writes about what was really happening on New Year’s Eve in Germany.

The translated post:

The truth about New Year’s Eve — Report of a police officer

by Richard Feuerbach

Today I spoke with a friend who works as a police officer in Cologne and wants to remain anonymous for understandable reasons.

He told me first-hand how and what he experienced in action on New Year’s Eve.

What he told me draws a completely different picture from what the mainstream press tries to draw.

From the point of view of a police officer at the front and from the point of view of the numerous New Year’s Eve victims, the reality is diametrically opposed to the public image in the media.

In the state of North Rhine-Westphalia alone, 38 (!) policemen and -women were injured on New Year’s Eve in action during peaceful New Year’s Eve celebrations, and in some cases have now been incapacitated for longer periods.

Hundreds of colleagues were mobbed, spit on, insulted, beaten and kicked. Even firefighters and rescue workers were victims of almost exclusively “Muslim, Arab and Turkish hordes, which have created in many places civil war-like conditions.” And not only on the so-called Kölnberg.

The so-called “protection zones” around Cologne Cathedral and the central station were hard to hold. A comprehensive control was impossible. In spite of the ban, numerous rockets and guns were fired at people and injured several of them.

The German population, if seen on the streets, were few and far between. Those who ventured out were at the least irritated and at the worst scared or in a panic. And others were filing charges with the police for assault, property damage, insult or sexual harassment. The officers of the Cologne police feel abandoned by Mayor [Henriette] Reker and certify her as having a “below-grade” policy and ivory-tower attitude.
