Earlier today I posted subtitled excerpts from a press conference given by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán. The photo below wasn’t appropriate in that context, so I’m posting it here. It shows Mr. Orbán with his grandchildren. The text reads, “Happy New Year”:
The photo was included in an annual letter sent out to members of the Fidesz party.
The video below shows Danish members of parliament behaving in a VERY politically incorrect manner in the Danish Parliament (Folketinget) itself.
Tania Groth, who translated the introduction to this clip (the song lyrics had been previously translated) sends this explanation for what happens in the video:
Today I saw a positive post on Facebook.
Recently there has been a big brouhaha about a traditional Danish song, because a female teacher of different ethnicity at the Danish Business School was offended by a line in the song (the first line) being sung at a school gathering. The title of the old song is “The Danish Song is a Young Blond Girl” — a classic, beautiful and very Danish song that sings about the beauty and soul of Denmark and the Danes.
Anyway, the University promptly apologized and said they wouldn’t be singing the song again — plus they thanked her for her vigilance on behalf of PC culture. The good thing about all this is that it REALLY caused a stir among people on both sides of the political spectrum. The majority of Danes were outraged that she, who has been welcomed here, should presume to change one of our most beautiful and iconic songs.
In other words the Danes proclaimed: THAT was enough PC nonsense, and were united. So, as a result of this, they sang this song in Parliament as a protest against the lunacy! A nice touch.
Promoted by the MSM without any commentary. How refreshing.
The (current) leading comment says:
He protects his own country. Migrants from underdeveloped countries cause only problems. They are not apt to live and work in a highly developed country like the US. They should first start to do something in their own countries. Many migrants come from countries with rich natural sources. Just have a look at Venezuela. It has one of the biggest reserves of oil. There is no reason why Venezuelans have to migrate.
Obviously, we at Gates of Vienna – Baron the mathematician and statistician, and Dymphna who has looked at clouds from both sides now – are not fans of imposed “consensus”. The kind of consensus that, unless you agree with it, makes you thuggishly deplorable.
Good for you, Dr. Peterson. I almost didn’t watch you on this video because I thought you’d be predictable. I should know better by now, eh?
This is the first bit of video I’ve come across on the rally Tommy and Batten have been promoting:
There is a three four-hour streaming video on RT, but our less-than-broadband connection is weighted down by snow [pictures at 11:00, provided I can nag persuade the Baron into taking a few snapshots. Right now the visibility is less than a quarter of a mile].
This, our first real snowfall of the season, serendipitously closes out our Quarterly Fundraiser. It’s quite beautiful if you don’t have to go out in it.
If y’all find any good videos on the rally, please leave them in the comments.
This post is really just an excuse to celebrate the Danes. It’s one country Shakespeare got wrong:
This isn’t breaking news, but it’s a welcome account nonetheless.
For many years Denmark has been voted the happiest country. It’s probably true and this direct approach to problems is a good example of their in-born cheerfulness. [No, Søren Kierkegaard doesn’t count.]
Besides being a handsome bunch, the Danish have a delightful sense of humor. Not to mention their cigarettes, beer, 1,000 kinds of real licorice, and countless candles in the cold shivering dark of winter. Danes exemplify the maxim about lighting a candle instead of cursing the darkness, though they probably do both.
Remember that video clip collection made of Obama’s clichéd encomia about small countries? BHO said of each nation in turn, as they appeared at state visits to the White House, that they all “punched above their weight”. The Danish creator of that video kept a straight face, making Obama look even more vacuous than usual.
Now that Denmark is sending its law-breaking “refugees” to an island off Copenhagen, they can join us in having their very own Gitmo. So congratulations, Denmark! But admit it: if you didn’t have that handy escape valve of the bridge leading to Sweden, the island would become over-crowded right quick.
Nonetheless, three cheers for the Danes! When I die, I’m coming back as a Dane.
I’m fighting six more right now, and I’m sure those last three will be back again before long.
This isn’t exciting work — more like a constant grind. But the tide has been slowed.
And it matters. It boosts our chances of winning easily and honourably. Europe’s taste for massacre probably rules that out for them, but not for us.
Mosques mark out territory; the smaller enemy territory is when the time comes, the more options we have to win; the more options we have to win, the more easily we can win without atrocity; if we win without atrocity, we can pass on the authority we have inherited from English generations before us.
Homeschooling is a sacrifice. It requires that the parents come up with the financial planning to make this undertaking possible. Two parents working full-time obviously can’t do it. Thus, families may have to be creative.
Homeschooling is also a reward. Most days it takes little more than two or three hours for academic work, leaving lots of time for other endeavors – time outside playing or running a track, plus time inside playing musical instruments or reading or playing fiercely-contested boardgames. No electronics save the computer for learning the keyboard as soon as possible.
Homeschooled children are noticeable. They don’t have the pressure of “socialization” at school so they’re freer to be themselves.On one occasion, the owner of a small bookstore where I’d taken the future Baron asked me if I homeschooled. Taken aback, I admitted as much and asked how she knew. “Without exception”, she said, “the homeschooled kids I see are calm and poised.” Since then, I’ve learned to pay attention to kids in public…I think she’s right, though I don’t ever ask.
As public education continues to swirl the drain, I feel great sympathy for those who don’t have the choice to educate their children en famille. It was a joy I’d not have missed for anything.
Dr Turley reports on Russia’s growing homeschooled population:
Our translator, Crossware, tipped the B to this video. It’s partially/mostly in English (with Hungarian subtitles). Pay particular attention to the moustachioed gentleman from England [and the two cuties from Denmark are worth your time].
The Swedish fellow looks like he got his tips on ‘dress to impress’ from America. I was going to say “I thought Swedes had more sense” but never mind.
A Hungarian reader named László sends this detailed account of the prominent coverage Tommy Robinson has received in the media (both traditional and alternative) in his country.
Tommy Robinson: The View From Hungary
I would like to give you and your readers a glimpse into the way the Hungarian press covers the topic of jihad and islamization in the West. Although I expect CrossWare keeps you pretty much updated about us, it may still be of interest to you, since I know that the Hungarian language is a secret code for everyone else in the world.
Jihad and islamization news from the West in general hit the biggest Hungarian online mainstream news sites (sometimes even the leftist ones, although it is distorted) and the state TV. Now, I can see that plenty of ordinary people (I could say an ‘army’ of Counterjihad commenters) influence the content and analysis of this mainstream news coverage from the background, mainly by commenting below the articles.
What Tommy (and other Western Counterjihad warriors) have probably never even dreamt of is how much their heroism and work help to save Hungary and Eastern Europe from islam! His captioned and subtitled videos sometimes have almost the same number of views as the original English ones. Just look at the number of views on this playlist for the counterjihad site Dzsihádfigyelő.
