The Railroading of Tommy Robinson

The following video is a report on Tommy Robinson by Lars Andersen, a Danish vlogger and former police officer. Mr. Andersen discusses Tommy’s speech at the Free Press Society and his interview on Danish TV, both of which were published here earlier this week.

The subtitled video of the Deadline interview with Peter Münster referred to by Mr. Andersen was posted here last September.

This video is an excellent fisking of the Danish MSM. Many thanks to Tania Groth for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Tommy Robinson in Copenhagen

As you all know by now, last week Tommy Robinson received the prestigious Sappho Award from the Danish Free Press Society in Copenhagen.

The full speech given by Tommy after receiving the award is embedded below. But first, there’s an interview with Tommy from the Danish MSM — an antagonistic one, of course; how could it be otherwise?

Many thanks to Tania Groth for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling (the transcript at the bottom of this post only includes the Danish portion at the beginning, and not the English-language exchanges in the interview):

Below is Tommy’s entire speech, as posted on the YouTube channel for the Free Press Society. Now that they’ve uploaded more than an hour of Tommy Robinson, how long do you think it will take before their channel is yanked?

By the way — I feel compelled to point out that in his speech Tommy made extensive use of Tania’s translation of a Danish TV clip, which was subtitled by Vlad and posted here last September. It’s good to have been of service to the cause:

Fascism is Alive and Doing Very Well

Our Dutch correspondent H. Numan sends an overview of the current political situation in the Netherlands, and also the rest of the West.

Fascism is alive and doing very well

by H. Numan

It is very much alive, and thriving. In both the USA and the EU. It is not a lot different from the past, but they have learned many lessons. One of them is that uniforms and flags are out. The current uniforms are either tailored suits (Obama, Clinton) or filthy clothing and an unwashed appearance (Michael Moore). That supposedly gives them a workman’s appearance, or so they like to think. Sometimes they combine a tailored suit with a ragged appearance (Bernie Sanders). In the EU it’s more tailored suits if they work in the higher echelons of the EU. However, the really hardcore socialists wear filthy clothing as a badge of honor. It represents the working men they don’t represent.

Today very few people know that national socialists are just another branch of socialism. They lack the ‘inter prefix’. That’s all. Hitler was a socialist. He admired Mussolini, who also was a socialist. Mussolini was congratulated by Lenin himself when he took over the Italian government. A lot of Nazis and Fascists admired the Roosevelt administration. The feelings were mutual: the US Democrats of the day admired the Nazis and the Fascists. Hitler was particularly impressed by the racial policies of the Democrat party and its Jim Crow laws. He based his Nuremberg laws on those laws. Eugenics were thought up by Democrats, and ‘improved’ by the Nazis. Hitler was Man of the Year 1938 in Time Magazine. On the other side of the pond Mussolini was greatly admired as the guy who made the trains run on time. Socialism really works, and it rules!

Then came World War Two. Which was half-lost by socialism. The then-socialist nations of Germany and Italy were taken over by democracy; that was a win. But one-third of Germany and Eastern Europe was taken over by socialism. That was a severe loss. The socialists, in particular the US Democrats, had to dump (and dumb) their previous association with their old comrades. Admittedly, socialists didn’t know exactly what was going on in the concentration camps. Nobody outside Germany did. That’s not an excuse, mind you. Because the existence of concentration camps was common knowledge.

It was also well known those camps were horrible. What was not known was the scale of the horrors. Or that many were actually extermination camps. Socialists have no problem at all with camps. The USSR had them. China still has them. Those in North Korea are probably a bit worse than German concentration camps. I’m pretty sure Venezuela also has their never-return camps. All socialists states have them. They can’t live without camps. Even today. Some Bernie Sanders staffers (not adherents!) insinuated that camps will have to be set up for Trump supporters after the 2020 elections. Concentration camps are like smoking: highly addictive for socialists, and it’s difficult to kick the habit.

I specifically say “staffer”, because that is significant. If a rank-and-file socialist yearns for camps to lock up Trump supporters, well. Nothing to worry about. Lots of people do that. On both sides of the fence. But when one of Sanders’ ranking staffers says it, that is almost policy. Especially if he is not rebuked by his boss for it.

Is there a difference between national socialism, as practiced by Hitler and international socialism as practiced by Clinton, Sanders and the Euro socialists? Of course. Lots of differences. Bernie has a crummy haircut, for example. And modern socialists don’t run camps yet. But they will, eventually. Because socialism cannot work without concentration re-education camps.

They have changed their strategy seriously. At this moment the media, the courts and most of the government are firmly in progressive control. So much so that they can allow a few dissidents to speak their minds. In America you have conservative broadcasters and judges. In Europe hardly any. In The Netherlands I know of none. Dissidents are not officially harassed, but that most certainly does happen, unofficially.

For example, Gregorius Nekschot (pseudonym; Gregorius Shot-in-the-neck) drew cartoons that are far more offensive then the Charlie Hebdo and Danish cartoons combined. Have a look, and draw your own conclusions. The cartoon riots were simply a tryout to see if they could get away with it. (They could.) If they ignored the Nekschot cartoons but started rioting over the Danish cartoons, you know it was a provocation.

Now, Gregorius was arrested in the middle of the night by a ten-man heavily armed SWAT team. Thoroughly questioned. Where the police gleefully told him: now you are no longer anonymous. They now know who you are. Have a nice life! After that and a lot of public outcry, they let him go. There was no need to lock him up anymore. He had learned his lesson. Gregorius stopped drawing cartoons. At this moment he is back in the saddle drawing cartoons, after many years of silence.

Yet Another Increase in Rapes and Sexual Assaults in Sweden

The rapid approach of the Swedish Bögalö is heralded by yet another increase in the number of rapes and sexual assaults against women.

Many thanks to FouseSquawk for translating this article from Nyheter Idag. I was surprised to see an MSM site like this one mention the culture-enriching aspect of these crimes:

Reported cases of sexual molestation against women and girls have increased sharply since 2015

On Thursday the Crime Prevention Council’s preliminary statistics for reported crime during 2019 were released. The statistics show that the number of sexual molestations against women and girls has increased sharply since 2015. The number of reported sexual molestations in the group of girls 15-17 has increased by 51%.

The number of reported rapes increased during 2019 by 6%, rising to 8,350 reported crimes compared to the previous year. Something that Nyheter Idag earlier reported on.

The total number of reported cases of sexual molestation remained at the same level as the previous year — 9,730. However, among women 18 or older, an increase of 5% was reported, to 5,294 reports.

Now Nyheter Idag has reviewed the number of reports of sexual molestation against women since 2015, five years back in time.

  • Women age 18 or older: From 4,173 to 5,294. An increase of 27%.
  • Girls 15-17. From 718 to 1,084. An increase of 51%.
  • Girls up to 15 years of age: From 2,072 to 2,304. An increase of 11%. However, 2014, the first year with complete statistics from BRÅ, is extremely high — 3,000.

In total, the number of reported cases of sexual molestation has more than doubled in 20 years. From 4,963 total reported cases of sexual molestation in 1999 to 10,310 cases in 2019— an increase of 108%.

There are different theories as to why the number of reports has increased. The criminologist Nina Rung has previously said that she believes that the tendency to file a report has increased.

After a large number of cases of sexual molestation against especially young girls were reported, the police compiled a report in 2016 in which, among other things, stated that cases were found in which groups of men surrounded girls who were alone and then abused them.

In at least ten cases, a lone girl was surrounded by several men (from 5-6 to a larger number) who are sometimes estimated to be 14-16 years of age. On these occasions, some held the girl down while others touched her breasts and body, and in one case, some photographed the abuse.

In some cases, the perpetrators have unbuttoned the girl’s pants and attempted — and in certain cases also succeeded — in pulling them down before rescue arrived. Similarly, it has occurred that several girls in a peer group have been exposed at the same time by a large gang. A few suspected offenders have been identified.

Those identified are citizens of Afghanistan, Eritrea and Somalia. All of the investigations in Stockholm and Kalmar from 2014-2015 have been closed due to the difficulty in identification or for lack of evidence.

The Boogaloo, Swedish Style

I’m not sure how “Boogaloo” would be spelled in Swedish — perhaps bögalö — but in any case the article below from Samhällsnytt discusses the Swedish government’s plans to use the military against the Swedish people when the Nordic Boogaloo finally kicks off.

Many thanks to LN for the translation:

The authorities plan to deploy the military against the Swedish people — the government is cheering

January 17, 2020

In the media shadow on February 1, 2018, the same day that it was announced that Dan Eliasson would leave his post as national police chief and take over as director general of the Swedish Social Protection and Emergency Preparedness Agency (MSB), a fifth so-called case of “gray zone” was presented: Extracts and escalating gray zone problems. Something that can be used arbitrarily by the holders of power to ensure continued power, and that citizens with the “wrong” views on social development are silenced.

According to the Swedish Defense Research Institute, FOI, it is believed that “the threat that exists today against Sweden is more complex and diffuse than before” and that “the boundary between peace and war is not as clear, and this unclear state is often called the ‘gray zone’.”

Among the tools that one fears might be used in the gray zone are, among other things, “dissemination of disinformation” and “impact operations”. The new Typfall 5 [Scenario 5] will give “authorities and other actors in crisis preparedness and civil defense better opportunities to plan and practice gray zone problems.”

Recently Police Chief Anders Thornberg wrote to the government requesting increased support from the Swedish Armed Forces in a gray zone situation, which means that police and military can be deployed against the population in a case where the country is deemed to be in a state of quasi-war. The pastor and writer Helena Edlund has been looking more closely at the government’s new opportunities to push hard against the population.

But when ministers start talking about the gray zone situation, the Swede should take his earplugs out and wonder why the same government that has done its utmost so far to procrastinate and delay effective measures against terrorists and organized crime is suddenly very quick on the ball when it comes to the possibility of deploying military units against the civilian population?

Edlund believes that the same ministers and directors-general who say they cannot understand what the increase in violence is due to certainly know that everything is going according to plan. Typfall 5 is based on a course of events that reflects an escalating gray zone problem with considerable societal impact but where neither heightened readiness prevails nor are visible military means of force used. In such a gray zone situation, the Swedish Armed Forces are supported by civil defense, which is represented by the MSB in crisis situations.

Alternative media a threat

FOI Memo 6338 describes the situation, among other things, as follows:

The dissemination of propaganda by internet activists and alternative media, which is then sometimes reflexively spread further in traditional Swedish media, conveys a distorted picture of Sweden. The Swedish public is exposed to ambiguous facts and sometimes pure disinformation on issues that concern, among other things, order and security, migration and integration, traditional values, crisis preparedness and defense, and foreign and security policy. These information operations, which primarily utilize our open society’s information infrastructure in terms of the Internet’s social media and blogs, as well as indirect TV, radio and newspapers, have a certain negative impact on public confidence in government and politicians.

ZDF Obfuscates the Global Jihad

The following clip is an excerpt from a video posted by a German vlogger named Thomas at Digitaler Chronist Alternative (the original 16-minute video is here [in German]).

In his rant Thomas takes exception to what he calls the “framing” by the state broadcaster ZDF, which recently characterized Islamic terror attacks as “the fight between the Islamic and Christian worlds” on Twitter.

Five Years After Charlie Hebdo: The West is on its Knees

Tuesday was the fifth anniversary of the massacre at the offices of Charlie Hebdo in Paris, in which Islamic terrorists murdered twelve people in the name of Allah. In the years since the attack, the West has become even more craven, and is even less willing to engage in frank discussion about the nature of Islam or the Islamization of Europe.

As usual, Mark Steyn has the most cogent remarks on the topic:

Instead of sharing the risk, the bigfoot media behaved exactly as they had a decade earlier. At my old London home The Daily Telegraph some gutless pansies decided that their reporting on the story could only be accompanied by carefully blurred images of the late cartoonists’ work in order to avoid giving offense — turning Mohammed into a perpetually pixelated prophet, as if (to reprise a gag I did in 2005) poor ol’ Mo’s entered the witness protection program.

Which is in fact the precise opposite of what’s going on: cowardly media pixelate Mohammed as a way of fast-tracking themselves into the witness protection program, or so they hope. On TV, one of the few surviving Charlie Hebdo staffers attempted to hold one of the offending covers on screen, only to have the camera lurch away. Around the world, the dead cartoonists’ professional colleagues, almost to a man, agreed that the preferred response was some or other limpid, evasive, self-flattering variant of “the pen is mightier than the sword”.

But that line doesn’t work if your pen’s filled with White-Out…

[…]

To be honest, it makes me vomit to see people holding these Princess Dianafied candlelit vigils, and using the hashtag #JeSuisCharlie — I am Charlie — and in effect appropriating these guys’ sacrifice for this bogus solidarity. It makes me sick to see all these ‘the pen is mightier than the sword’ cartoons that have appeared in newspapers all over the United States, Canada, Britain, Germany, France, Australia, everywhere, from other cartoonists, again expressing solidarity with these very brave men — but not doing what they did…

I’ve been on enough events in Europe with less famous cartoonists than these who live under death threats, live under armed guard, have had their family restaurant firebombed — it’s happened to a Norwegian comedienne I know — have come home and found their home burned, as a Swedish artist I know happened to. And all these people doing the phony hashtag solidarity, screw your phony hashtag solidarity. Let’s have some real solidarity — or if not, at least have the good taste to stay the hell out of it.

That would have been asking too much. In the days that followed almost all those who claimed to be expressing solidarity with Charb were, in fact, signaling very clearly that they preferred to live on their knees.

[…]

That’s why free speech matters. Without free speech, there are only the official lies — about who’s killing Jews in Copenhagen, who’s sexually assaulting women in Cologne — and there is nothing to say in response to either except to crank up the old joanna for one more chorus of “Imagine”.

What happened on January 7th 2015 was terrible. But our response to it made it more terrible, and emboldened civilization’s enemies. With respect to the late Charb, the choice is not between dying standing up or living on our knees — for those who choose to live on their knees will die there, too, cringing and craven…

Read the whole thing.

There has been a lot of talk on French TV about the fifth anniversary of the Charlie Hebdo slaughter. Below are two video samples. Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translations, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Video #1: Marika Bret, the former Social Relations Director for Charlie Hebdo, discusses the increase in the Islamization in the five years since the attack.

Video #2: Remarks by Jean Messiha. According to Wikipedia, as glossed by MissPiggy:

Jean Messiha is an Egyptian-born French economist, high-ranking civil servant, political advisor and candidate. He became the deputy under-secretary of management at the Ministry of Defence in 2014. He is the spokesman for “Horaces”, a group of high-ranking civil servants and business executives who meet once a month and discuss the National Front (now National Rally) party platform. He was a candidate in the 2017 French legislative election.

Mr. Messiha tells the audience, “You’d best learn to pray in Arabic.”

Video transcript #1:

00:00   That’s what we blame Charlie [Hebdo] for. We blame Charlie for being secular, but it’s only been
00:03   50 years that Charlie [Hebdo] has been secular. —It goes after all the religions.
00:06   Exactly, it treats every religion the same.
00:09   Actually, when you put the word religion in a drawing,
00:13   if you place the word Islam in a drawing, afterward
00:17   there are miles of messages and those messages are death threats. For the past five years,
00:24   I’ve been going to the police station every month or so to file a complaint
00:28   about death threats, not insults. Death threats.
00:31   Yes, that’s what Riss [Sourisseau] also said in his interview yesterday in the Sunday paper.
00:35   It’s necessary to file complaints each time.
00:38   You live in a bunker at Charlie Hebdo. We need to remember that
00:41   people still live under police protection.
00:45   We’ve all heard about the different events that have taken place
00:49   over the last few days. Thibault de Montbrial, a fierce advocate of secularism,
00:53   says that the threat is even stronger
00:57   today than five years ago. —The threat is stronger because it has become home-grown. The reality is
01:03   that this threat is strong, because this barbaric and deadly ideology
01:08   has permeating a number of minds.
01:12   As we’ve seen in recent days, people will do anything to explode what they have to explode.
01:22   So, yes, it is strong, it is very strong and along with that, to top it all off,
01:27   no president, no government, no minister of the interior is doing anything against it. —Yes.

Ringing in the New Year With Antifa

The following report is one of those very rare cases where the mainstream media are willing to discuss “left-wing extremism”. Normally all extremism in Europe is assigned to the Right, but the actions of the antifa-types in Leipzig on New Year’s Eve — they beat a policeman almost to death — were so egregious that even the media had to take notice.

There is Nothing so Cheerful on a Cold Winter’s Night as a Brightly Burning Car

Burning cars has been a New Year’s custom in France for decades. I first became aware of the practice in 2005, not long after this blog was started, when the mischievous “youths” of the Parisian banlieues were particularly zealous in their incineration of automobiles.

Aficionados of the sport keep track of the statistics. As car-burnings go, the New Year’s festival of 2019/2020 was just so-so — more than some years, less than others.

MissPiggy has translated a series of videos and articles to produce a report on this year’s carbecues in France over the New Year’s holiday. Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling.

The first video is a French news report about the trolling of President Emmanuel “Toy Boy” Macron by President Donald Trump over the car burnings in France:

The second video illustrates the unabashed, abject surrender of public intellectuals to the endemic lawlessness of the immigrant banlieues.

MissPiggy translates from the notes on the video: “For the French columnist and lawyer Marie-Anne Soubré it’s better to have torched cars than riots between young people and police officers. The transition to the New Year was marked by many car fires. In Strasbourg, more than 200 vehicles were set on fire. Marie-Anne Soubré concedes that she prefers to see this kind of incidents rather than riots.”

Below is an editorial about the car-burnings from the news site Boulevard Voltaire:

January 2, 2020

There were burnt cars in Strasbourg, Bordeaux, Limoges, Nantes and even at my house: Le Monde has seen “nothing”?

Globalization is a wonderful phenomenon, especially for our evening life, as we used to say before. Thus Le Monde keeps you informed on a daily basis about the fires burning in Australia and the good performance of the French car market.

Fire? Automobile? Well no, the association did not wake up the editor. Nor did the smell of burnt cars coming up from Strasbourg, the suburbs of Paris and elsewhere, many regional metropolises and sometimes even small outlying towns; no, Le Monde no longer has a sense of smell, sight or a special correspondent. At the time of writing, on 2 January, almost forty-eight hours after the fact, no summary article has been published. On the other hand, Philippe Martinez, Carlos Ghosn, and Emmanuel Macron at the Angoulême Comic Book Fair are being followed closely. Cédric Pietralunga tweets the scoop on the presidential visit scheduled for the end of January. In Le Monde, we are definitely looking very far over these fumes of the 31st…

But the globalization of the world and the world according to Macron cannot prevent the reality of these burning cars, on the evening of the 31st, from coming up on social networks, via a tweet from Trump or via the videos of the riff-raff bragging about them. And the regional press can’t fail to mention them, or risk losing even more credibility.

So there was Strasbourg, as our Alsatian friend José Meidinger told you. But the West and the Southwest were not spared.

In Nantes, in the Malakoff district, at least fifteen cars were set on fire, but other areas of the city were affected, according to Ouest-France, as a police source told the daily: “We had them almost everywhere.”

In Limoges, between 26 and 36 cars were set on fire, according to Le Populaire du Centre. When questioned, the prefect’s chief of staff said that “the emergency services and the police were hard-put, in particular by the throwing of projectiles by small groups”.

In Bordeaux, too, Sud-Ouest could not hide the reality: “Tensions in Bordeaux on New Year’s Eve: cars and garbage cans burned.” The Aubiers district was particularly affected, but in fact several communes in the agglomeration were affected. The regional daily knows no more than the prefecture’s statement: “The police had to deal with tensions that began early Tuesday evening with groups of young people and resulted in car and rubbish-bin fires in several towns in the metropolis. There have been arrests following the throwing of projectiles at the police.”

Le Monde says nothing. For the time being. The regional press says a little. All that’s left are the desperate tweets from the unfortunate owners of the burned cars.

There are lawless areas in France; it’s well-known. There are also white zones, where communications do not go through, where the press does not seem to investigate, and stick to the communiqués of the prefecture. It looks like a war communication, by the way. Our journalists should think about this. There are also white periods, from 12/31, “very early”, until the 1st or the 2nd very late, we will now be asked to concentrate… I don’t know… on the wishes of Emmanuel Macron? Why not stretch them, by the way: 18 minutes, then 36, then 48 hours. Before joining the Comics Festival in Angoulême to launch his New Year with a fanfare.

Angoulême? The Charente Libre tells us that the city also had its “urban violence” and “burnt cars” on the evening of the 31st. Before looking into the hypothetical visit of our President Potemkin to the festival of bubbles, Le Monde could perhaps investigate the fumes of Soyaux, no?

But, in fact, as early as 2017 — January 4, the wake-up date — Le Monde warned us by sending out the phenomenon with a Shakespearean title: “Cars burned on New Year’s Eve: much ado about nothing”, with a sociologist to back it up: “This figure [of burned cars] is surely a symptom of something, but we don’t know what. In any case, it doesn’t explain or tell us anything.”

Haven’t understood yet?

ClownWorld Germany 2019

The following video from Germany is a sardonic wrap-up of the political and cultural events of 2019. The German progressive mindset is amazingly similar to what we experience here in the USA — the same intolerance of differing opinions, the same tendency to call “racist” or “Nazi” at the first sign of disagreement, and the openly stated desire to exert totalitarian control in order to suppress political dissent.

GrandmaGate Scandal Engulfs Germany

On Monday I reported on a propaganda song recorded by the German state broadcaster WDR2 (West Deutsch Rundfunk 2, West German Broadcasting 2). The boys at WDR used a children’s choir to create a little ditty pushing action to stop “climate change”. The children in the choir sang an irritating song about “Grandma”, whom they labeled “an old environmental pig”.

Well. The invasion of hundreds of thousands of third-world migrants is not enough to get ordinary German citizens to take to the streets. Not even if those culture-enrichers engage in rape, assault, robbery, arson, and other forms of general mayhem. But insulting their grandmas — that’s going too far!

The first video below is a news report about the controversy caused by the anti-grandma song, and the way it is being exploited by right-wing extremists. The second video shows a protest in front of WDR’s offices in Cologne by offended grandmas and their supporters. Antifa shock troops were present in force, to make sure those Nazi grandmas didn’t get out of line.

Hysteria Eleison

The German state broadcaster WDR2 (West Deutsch Rundfunk 2, West German Broadcasting 2) used a children’s choir to create a propaganda song pushing action to stop “climate change”. The main point of the little ditty seems to be that riding motorcycles and eating pork chops are doubleplus ungood activities.

The diminutive choristers are to be indoctrinated trained as “ambassadors for climate justice”.

MissPiggy, who translated the text and video below, reports that WDR2 later back-pedaled, claiming on Twitter that the song was in fact a satire. However, an announcement from last October by WDR2 belies that assertion, demonstrating that the broadcaster was launching the initiative in all seriousness.

In case it gets removed from the Internet, MissPiggy has screen-capped the page in question:


(Click to enlarge)

Here’s the translation:

On Saturday, 5 October 2019 the WDR Children’s Choir of Dortmund will sing at the closing event of “Plant for the Planet” in Königswinter, Bonn.

At the same time the singers will be trained as ambassadors for climate justice by other children. “The topic of climate change is on everyone’s lips right now, and with “Fridays for Future” it has also become a topic for the younger generation. In addition to the activities of Greta Thunberg, there are also many other very exciting and meaningful projects on the subject of climate, such as the organisation “Plant for the Planet”. This organisation trains children in a one-day academy to become “climate protectors”, and plants trees with the children in cooperation with a forester. Many hundreds of thousands of trees have already been planted in this way.

Within the framework of this project there will be a WDR report.

Raped in the Name of Allah and the Koran in the Banlieues

The following Italian article concerns events that occurred in a suburb of Paris. FouseSquawk, who translated the piece, looked through reports in the French press, but could find no articles or videos that identified the perpetrators of the heinous act as Africans or discussed the Islamic aspects of the crime. The Italian press, however, was less fastidious in its reporting.

The translated article from Il Giornale:

They raped her while praising Allah. Then they posted the video of the abuse on their social media.

The rape took place last Thursday in a suburb south of Paris. Some officials of the government, instead of asking themselves about the terrible violence, have pointed the finger at Twitter.

by Federico Giuliani
December 26, 2019

In France, in a suburb south of Paris, two 16-year-olds, of African origin, raped a minor girl, filmed the abuse, and shared the video on their social network.

During the sexual violence, the assailants repeatedly cited Allah, the Koran, and Mecca.

The incident, reported by French newspapers and then picked up by La Verita, happened Thursday, 19 December at Morsang-sur-Orge, in the Essonne department. The perpetrators of the rape, as stated, posted the film of the violence on the web. Those brutal images, aside from being shared by numerous users, allowed the investigators to trace the identity of the alleged rapists. The two assailants were arrested last Saturday.

The dynamics of the facts

The sexual aggression occurred in the entrance hall of a building. The classical large building typical of those peripheral urban areas where delinquency, drug traffic, crime, and more in general, degradation reign. The video of the rape lasts about a minute and a half and was bounced from one social media outlet to another, enjoying particular success on Twitter.

The dramatic images begin with the underage victim, who fled, was chased and insulted by the two 16-year-olds. From their mouths come very violent words, offenses that are confused with terms that refer to the Islamic religion. “I swear on the Koran of Mecca, cry out and you will see the blows that I give you,” shouts one of the rapists to the frightened girl.

In another moment, the rapists order the young girl to follow them. “In the name of God, I swear to you on the Koran of Mecca: It is better to reflect in your head and come to us because a squad is about to arrive — We are the best, those who are arriving will make you regret. On my mother I swear to you, you won’t get out alive. You will die.” At that point, the verbal violence was transformed into physical violence.

There Really is a Left-Wing Conspiracy

In his latest essay, our Dutch correspondent H. Numan responds to a commenter named Reconquista, who took him to task in the comment thread on his previous post.

There really is a left-wing conspiracy

by H. Numan

A few days ago I wrote an article about massive political losses of the left-wing parties in America and the UK. A reader responded this was nonsense; I was just an old fogey longing for the days where communists were prosecuted. I had to smile when I read it. Yes, I am an old fogey. Yes, I’m also a (C)old war warrior. What the reader doesn’t know, but I proudly say: I was member of the Royal Netherlands Military Constabulary or Koninklijke Marechaussee. A unit not exactly known for their love of progressiveness and liberalism. I’m not repudiating or refuting this reader; I’m more than happy to give him the benefit of doubt. Let’s just say he doesn’t know better. Most people don’t know all this. It’s up to me to clarify. That’s why I write for the Gates anyway.

Let’s start by looking at me, way back when I was a kid. My parents were devoutly Roman Catholic. They voted for the KVP (Catholic party), later the CDA (Christian Democrats, after the merger). For one reason only: they were Catholic, and Catholics vote for that party. No other reason. Now, my parents were not rich. Far from it. We never lacked for the bare basics, but no more. A car, for example, we never had. During the holidays we kids had to amuse ourselves; my parents couldn’t afford to go away on a holiday. At best we went on one— or two-day trips. My clothes — as many over the age of 50 will remember — were usually hand-me-downs from elder cousins who had grown out of them. Fortunately, my sense of fashion was and still is non-existent.

You might say that my parents and myself later on were the ideal voters for a labor or social-democrat party. After all, we had a lot to gain and nothing to lose by voting labor. Yet I never felt attracted to socialism in my life. Not as a young boy, not as a young new voter and certainly not now. I think you have to work to achieve something. You can choose something else, but that is your choice. Don’t ask others to pay for your hobbies and daydreams. So you can say I’m a die-hard conservative from the cradle. I never voted conservative (VVD) because I particularly liked that party, but more for want of anything better.

Right now, we have more options. For me there’s the PVV party, which is a conservative party for the common man. There is also FvD (Forum for Democracy), which is another new conservative party. Only this one targets a more affluent audience. The VVD party calls itself a people’s party, but in real life they are anything but. The VVD only works for the people who actually own factories, businesses and banks. Nowadays it’s a wishy-washy party trying to be as progressively liberal as it can get away with. Which is quite a lot, regretfully. The name VVD stands for Volkspartij voor Vrijheid and Democratie, in English: People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy.

Now you have a bit of a background. Let’s look at the conspiracy. The biggest lie of them all is calling national socialism anything other than socialism. Both national socialism and fascism are variants of socialism. Neither Hitler nor Mussolini had a problem with socialism itself. All they did was add nationalism to it. Or get rid of the ‘inter’ prefix, if you prefer. And Hitler was quite enchanted by the extreme racism, the infamous Jim Crow laws of the Democrat Party in the southern USA. That’s what he based his Nuremberg Laws on. Not on muslim dhimmi laws, as I stated in an earlier article. He probably would have, had he known about them. Those laws are even more vile.

But Hitler and Mussolini hated communism, you say. They persecuted communists, locked them up, killed them and conquered (or try to) communist states? Surely you are mistaken! Not at all. True, they most certainly hated communism. Not because they were on opposite sides of the political spectrum but because they are so closely related. That happens a lot in history. We had many wars between Catholics and Protestants, or Shiite and Sunni muslims to mention a few. Both share more than 96% of their opponents’ ideology, differing only on minor points. For which they fought and fight each other to death. Make no mistake: national socialists and fascists are both forms of socialism. They just don’t like the ‘inter’ prefix.
