Prof. Sucharit Bhakdi: “Now the Hour of the Reformation 2.0 Strikes”

This coming Saturday a major demonstration will take place in the German city of Magdeburg, the place where the Reformation began almost five hundred years ago, when Martin Luther arrived there in 1524.

Below is a video out by the organizers of the event. Many thanks to Hellequin GB for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

A summary of the planned event, courtesy of our Swedish correspondent LN:

Large demonstration in Magdeburg with Prof. Bhakdi on April 29, 2023: “In my whole life I have never had more important things to say than now.”

Prof. Bhakdi encourages people to join him and come to Magdeburg. On April 29 there will be a large demonstration in front of the cathedral square. He said he has never had more important things to say in his entire life. Also people such as Dr. Wodarg, Dr. Yeadon, Dr. Griesz-Brisson, Dr. Javid-Kistel, Anselm Lenz and Michael Ballweg are invited there as guests. Demonstrations will be held for a Reformation 2.0, Lauterbach’s liability, stopping the Green ID passport and leaving the WHO. Prof. Bhakdi says in his short video contribution: “Come to the cathedral square in Magdeburg, experience in front of God’s house how brutes have dared and managed to commit this inconceivable outrage and to give themselves super-divine omnipotence. Here in this place, 499 years ago, Magdeburgers stood up to be the first to initiate the Reformation. Now the hour of the Reformation 2.0 strikes and this time it is about everything. Namely, the salvation of mankind. All those who are united here today in Magdeburg: stand up once again after 700 years, for God, for truthfulness and for humanity.”

Prof. Bhakdi addresses the population with a new video. He calls for people to meet in Magdeburg on April 29, 2023. Those who attend “will understand why it is now about everything.” In 15 minutes he wants to summarize the inconceivable.

The Tomb is Empty

William Blake, ‘Mary Magdalene at the Sepulchre’ (c.1805)

Happy Easter, everyone!

For today’s Gospel reading, the Episcopal Lectionary offers a choice between Matthew and John. I prefer the latter (John 20:1-18):

Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the tomb. So she ran and went to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid him.” Then Peter and the other disciple set out and went toward the tomb. The two were running together, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. He bent down to look in and saw the linen wrappings lying there, but he did not go in. Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb. He saw the linen wrappings lying there, and the cloth that had been on Jesus’ head, not lying with the linen wrappings but rolled up in a place by itself. Then the other disciple, who reached the tomb first, also went in, and he saw and believed; for as yet they did not understand the scripture, that he must rise from the dead. Then the disciples returned to their homes.

But Mary stood weeping outside the tomb. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb; and she saw two angels in white, sitting where the body of Jesus had been lying, one at the head and the other at the feet. They said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She said to them, “They have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid him.” When she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you looking for?” Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.” Jesus said to her, “Mary!” She turned and said to him in Hebrew, “Rabbouni!” (which means Teacher). Jesus said to her, “Do not hold on to me, because I have not yet ascended to the Father. But go to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’” Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord”; and she told them that he had said these things to her.

Greater Idaho Moves a Step Closer

I posted last month about the Greater Idaho movement, which aims to move the border of Oregon to the west, allowing rural Oregonian counties to join Idaho, with which they are culturally and politically compatible. Initially there would be eleven counties that would switch from Oregon to Idaho, while others would be added later, possibly including several from northern California, and giving Idaho a Pacific coastline.

A bill to begin the consultation process with Oregon was formally introduced in the Idaho legislature earlier this week. Below is the press release sent out by Greater Idaho:

Greater Idaho Bill Introduced in Idaho Legislature

A bill that would invite Oregon to begin talks with the Idaho Legislature about relocating their state line was unanimously awarded a bill number, HJM 1, by the Idaho House of Representatives’ State Affairs Committee today after a short discussion. It was then read on the floor of the House. A full hearing before the committee was scheduled for February 13 at 9 AM.

Rep. Judy Boyle and Rep. Barbara Ehardt are the bill’s lead sponsors, and three cosponsors signed on to the bill immediately after it was printed. Rep. Boyle, whose district shares a border with Oregon, gave the committee several reasons to support the bill. She explained that her county has been overwhelmed by drugs since Oregon changed its laws on marijuana and decriminalized hard drugs. She said moving the state line would move the problem farther away.

Rep. Boyle cited a forthcoming final report on a major economic analysis that was funded by the Claremont Institute. The study found that relocating the state border would provide a net benefit to the government of Idaho’s budget of $170 million annually.

Lastly, she said that relocating the border would ease the intense influx of people to the current counties of Idaho, as some of the migration is politically motivated. The proposed relocation would increase Idaho’s territory by 74% while increasing the state’s population by 21% according to the “Greater Idaho” movement’s website

A Victory in Ontario for the Vaccine-Hesitant

A schoolteacher named Rich Daly won an important vax-related case in an Ontario court. A judged ruled that he, rather than his ex-wife, was the most qualified and knowledgeable person to decide whether or not his 8-year-old daughter should be injected with the experimental mRNA treatment intended to mitigate the effects of infection with the Wuhan Coronavirus.

Mr. Daly says the ruling is now being used as a precedent in other cases.

No-Mask Shopping in a German Supermarket

As an antidote to my Corona rant from earlier tonight, consider this supermarket in Germany where the proprietor has instituted no-mask shopping. Customers must feel the way I do when I visit the Amish market out here in the backwoods.

The Tomb is Empty

Happy Easter, everyone!

This is the first time I’ve missed an Easter Sunday service in more than thirty years. It’s disorienting and somewhat depressing — what am I doing here, typing on the keyboard, when I should be down there at church singing Easter hymns…?

Dymphna and I usually included some music in our Easter posts, so I’ll continue that tradition. This one is a change of pace: a bluegrass song entitled “My Father Owns”. The link was sent to me by the man who wrote it:

He is risen!

A Hero Saves a Burning Church in Provence

Last Sunday another French church was set on fire, this time the church of Notre-Dame de Grace in the village of Eyguières in Provence. The following video features a radio interview with a courageous young man named Joël Jouve, whose prompt intervention saved the church from much more extensive damage.

On Being Snookered by Penny-ante Political Obfuscations

Hey, Jordan Peterson! Your descriptions of what young men need if they are ever to mature in our Western world are spot on. But as a political philosopher, you lack the foundation to address the ugly divisions the Left has driven into the heart of civil discourse.

Which is unfortunate for us all. You are good at stating what you don’t know, but sometimes you enter into the realms of what you don’t know that you don’t know, i.e., what you have glossed over or failed to comprehend. Yes, you want your reach to transcend politics but it can’t since the Left has inextricably bound the political into every facet of life, a merging the right rejects categorically. You say the right can be seen by its identity politics but you don’t say the left does exactly the same thing. Try saying “All Lives Matter” in public and see where it gets you.

People are anxious to pigeonhole your ideas and you want to allay their fears that you might be -gasp! – right wing. You attempt to declare your political agnosticism while refusing to bow to an overweening leftist identitarianism. When you refuse the strictures of compelled speech from the rulers of Canada, you are speaking from the right. Compelled speech is a leftist/socialist trope; it is the Right which defends freedom of speech.

By the way, how many rightwingextremists have shown up to disrupt your talks, trash your ideas, or make you feel unsafe in public? And if you think Charlottesville was reality-based, you’ve been snookered, sir. We live near there; we watched it go down. From the beginning, the whole mess was a false flag set-up.

Read Tomas Sowell, sir. Across more than fifty years, his body of work, his opera of conservative political philosophy, has been consistently correct. In his eighties now, he’s still sharp. Here’s his Amazon Page It’s a wealth of information that never stale dates.

Meanwhile, listen to Dr. Turley explain why Nazism -National Socialism- is leftist. It did not come from the Right.

Now tell us why wanting to be a nation-state with one’s own peculiar culture, language and traditions is not a good thing. Ask Les Québécois why they won’t give up and join you Anglos. Do you think they should? If not, why not? Compare and contrast.

Sweden Democrats Are Losing Their Leper Status

Gates of Vienna has been in the SD’s corner for many years. It is heartening indeed to see them rise, both at home and in the EU Parliament. These people have paid in blood and tears for their slow but sure progress.

Maybe they ought to replace their flower with the image of a tortoise…I’ll see if the Baron has one to hand.


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.

Merry Christmas to All You Danish WAYCISTS!

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.

Here is the video on Facebook.

An Astute Response to “Immigration is a Right”

From September, speaking at the U.N.:

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.

Put your own country in order.

Jordan Peterson on Global Warming

Lots of people won’t like his answer:

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?
