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.

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.

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?

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.

Socialism Really is a Cult

Our Dutch correspondent H. Numan takes a look at the bizarre wave of socialist madness that is currently raging on both sides of the Atlantic.

Socialism really is a cult

by H. Numan

A bit of a bold statement, I know. Let me explain. There is nothing wrong with being social. After all, we humans are social animals. However, socialism as a political ideology is wrong. Very wrong. Socialism doesn’t work. It lets others do the work. Socialism has failed wherever it was implemented. It sometimes took a while, but it always failed. The few states left over that really are socialist are failing or going to fail. No question about it. With one exception: China. But China is first Chinese, then Chinese, then a long time nothing and finally they are socialist. Sort of socialist, that is.

Now, China has always been an absolute monarchy. Not surprisingly Mao ruled as one too, and so does the present emperor — who is titled president for life now. Not emperor, but effectively the same thing. Just a different name. He isn’t socialist, he’s Chinese. Red was always the preferred color for the Chinese. Red being the color of socialism is just an extra. All Chinese companies are effectively, if not outright, state-run organizations.

China has two major problems that it cannot solve: first of all, their failed one child policy. By the time China becomes a real superpower their army will be made up of old fogies with crutches and drips. Don’t underestimate that problem. China already has huge problems finding sufficiently capable soldiers at this very moment. Imagine what it will be like in twenty years, when they really will have an enormous manpower problem.

The second problem is corruption. Corruption is ingrained in Chinese society, regardless of ideology. Socialism only makes it worse, much worse. The current Chinese leadership is more worried about the reliability of their army, specifically the top brass, than anything else right now. If worst comes to worst, we can always buy a couple of Chinese army commanders. The leadership knows it, and dreads it.

On the bright side: China is not interested in conquering the world. Just the business part of it. On the not-so-bright side: they’re damned good at it. China is a problem for the future. Right now we have bigger worries. The first is socialism, and the second one is mohammedanism. More about mohammedanism in another article.

So let’s get back on topic. Socialism is a cult. You see it in America, where the Democrat party is anything but democratic right now. And in England, where the Labour party should rename itself the Stalinist party. Likewise, in all western countries social democratic parties have been taken over by diehard old-fashioned communists. And … the left is again losing. Again, because they have learned nothing from the past. Like Louis XVIII of France, the king who replaced Napoleon: they have learned nothing and forgotten nothing.

Jeremy Corbyn even had the gumption to say: “We have won the debate, but failed to achieve a majority.” His followers blame everyone — except themselves. They blame the ‘extreme right-wing media’ for their loss. And of course the silly, stupid and antediluvian electorate. Anyone and anything, except themselves. Now, the media in Europe are about as left-wing as Pravda was during the heydays of communism. It was Corbyn (and his minions) who vilified themselves. Not the media.

For Corbyn really is a vile person. He is a warm supporter of every socialist dictator alive. Kim Jong-Un, Maduro and Castro among others are his friends. Corbyn is a virulent antisemite, though he calls himself anti-Zionist. It’s exactly the same, but being antisemitic is nowadays punishable by law. Hamas and Hezbollah are his friends; they fight against the capitalist Zionist conquerors of their country. The media did all they could to soften Corbyn’s words so it wouldn’t hurt him too much. Labour adherents who say the BBC is a right-wing broadcaster are delusional.

To Our Cloying Mistresses

For a change of pace, here’s a riff by JLH on a well-known poem by the great Metaphysical poet Andrew Marvell.

To:   Nancy forever-the-Speaker Pelosi, A I-despise-my-constituents OC, “truly Illegal” Omar, Rash and-then-some Tlaib, Alyssa my-bottom-is my-best-known-feature Milano, Jane if-I-can’t-be-a world-class-beauty-I-can-be-a-world-class-jerk Fonda, and honorary “mean girls” Adam my-pencil-neck-constricts-my-thinking Schiff and Gerald they-sucked-out-my-fat-and-some-of-my-brain Nadler
 

To Our Cloying Mistresses

by JLH, with apologies to Andrew Marvell

Had we but world enough and time,
This nonsense, ladies, were less a crime.
We could leisurely propose a bill,
That just might heal the nation’s ills.
And tarry by Potomac’s rush
To declaim the nation’s debt to us.
Non-partisan, we’d find a way
To pass the tardy USMCA.
We’d debate in principle, friendship and calm
Until the conversion of all Islam.
We’d reduce our pay and also our pension
And never again give “pork” a mention.
We’d praise our nation, which is like no other
And greet new citizens as sister and brother.
We’d praise each of us of any race or station
Who freely chooses to love this nation.

But at your back you too must hear
The next election hurrying near.
Your power, as all power must,
Will shrivel up and turn to dust,
And as an hourglass’s sands,
Will trickle through your nerveless hands.
Consider, as you greatly dare:
Defeat is something no one shares.

While capable still of reasoned thought,
Compare what you “may” to what you “ought”.
And think while in the light of day,
Unlike nocturnal birds of prey,
How to squeeze yourself, if you are quick
Through the iron gate of politics.
And seek relief by setting free
Again this land of liberty.

Don’t Hurt Me, I’m Dutch

A series of culturally enriched attacks in the city of Gorkum (also spelled Gorinchem) in the Netherlands has been prominent in Dutch news media for the last few days. Videos of the attacks were spread on social media, showing culture-enriching gang violence — six to twelve attackers — against lone Dutch youngsters. White youngsters, I hardly need to add.

The videos below highlight something that has become obvious in the last few years, but which I try not to think about because it is so depressing: the war in Western Europe is already over. The enemy has the numbers. Even if young native Dutch boys were able to summon the masculine fortitude necessary for a successful counterattack against their Muslim tormentors, they don’t have the numbers. In that age group — the 12-17 range — boys “with a migration background” are in the majority. There simply aren’t enough native Dutch youngsters to prevail in any street battles.

Even if the Dutch media were to stop lying and obfuscating and papering over what is going on; even if the Dutch people were to become fully aware of the dire plight their country is in; even if the Powers That Be were to stop importing more culture-enrichers — which is so unlikely as to be laughable — the outcome would still be pre-determined. The Dutch people have lost. The Muslims have won. Over the next decade or two we will simply see the consolidation of their victory and their gradual occupation of all the positions of political power.

Yes, I know the newcomers are totally dependent on the Dutch welfare state. But there’s no sign that the government will withdraw those benefits from the enrichers. Not until the existing system collapses — after that the situation will become chaotic and violent and unpredictable. We don’t know how it will all shake out, because it is unprecedented — nothing like this has ever happened before.

And I assume that a similar situation exists in the rest of Western Europe. We are approaching the endgame of European civilization.

Ten or twelve years ago I said repeatedly that it was not too late, that there was still a slim chance to reverse the Islamization of the West by non-violent means. But I don’t say that anymore, because it is no longer the case, at least in Western Europe. Especially since Mutti Merkel invited in those two or three million additional migrants starting in 2015 — the newcomers now have more than enough young men of fighting age to prevail. Even if native European youngsters weren’t gender non-binary snowflakes, this would still be the case.

We All Knew This Would Happen, We Just Neglected to Tell You

For more than a decade Sweden’s ruling class — including political leaders and the media — has denied that there are any problems in the country’s banlieues caused by the mass importation of Third World immigrants. Except for problems caused by those WAYCIST Swedes, of course.

Now it seems that the truth about cultural enrichment has become so blatant that it can no longer be denied. The response of the Swedish media establishment? “We knew all along that things would end badly; we just forgot to tell you.”

And they blame the politicians.

Lena Mellin on the violence: “That it would go to hell has been known for years”

November 17, 2019

Aftonbladet‘s Lena Mellin now states that it has long been widely known that the suburbs would “go to hell”. The 64-year-old left-wing journalist calls on Swedish politicians to be “ashamed”.

“All parties, with the possible exception of the Left Party and the Sweden Democrats [SD], who hardly affected the reality on this point, should be ashamed,” writes Lena Mellin in a report.

According to her, politicians have “largely neglected the development in some of our suburbs” even though “everyone knew it would end in disaster.”

However, Lena Mellin’s masterful tone, which is thus directed entirely at the politicians and not at the media, has attracted criticism.

“Incredible! Lena Mellin, of all journalists one of the foremost advocates for mass immigration and multiculturalism, one of the worst SD-haters, claims that ‘one has known for years’ that it would go to hell,” writes, for example, the former SD summit Ted Ekeroth on Twitter.

When Justice Isn’t

Tabitha Korol’s latest essay confronts the current craze for Social Justice Warfare.

When Justice Isn’t

by Tabitha Korol

A letter written by a local elementary school teacher — I’ll call her “Mrs. Krieg” — was brought to my attention by a mutual acquaintance. In light of the notice that honor classes will be discontinued, she thoughtfully agreed that equity (defined as fairness and impartiality) in the schools should benefit all students. Regrettably, she has been influenced by terminology that has been devalued and redefined to become a tool for social engineering among students. Such revisionism has been applied to Equity, Diversity and Social Justice, and comes at the expense of freedom and true justice.

Honors classes were designed to challenge students academically. The advanced work, faster pace, and higher course-credit weight have provided for smarter, happier, well-rounded children who had the opportunity to flourish according to their capabilities and not misbehave out of boredom. But now, the authorities have determined it best to cancel the honor courses across the country because of a “lack of diversity” — that is, more Caucasian and Asian students were engaged than Blacks, Latinos and Native Americans. Instead of also providing honors classes that meet the interests of the low-energy students — perhaps music, theater, artisanal handicrafts — the Department of Education has decided to close the achievement gap by lowering the bar and expectations and discontinuing all incentives. Mrs. Krieg did not foresee that by eliminating the incentives and opportunities, the resulting “equity” would be mediocrity and the loss of exceptional achievement.

Now the Department of Education will generate equity in boredom, discontent, resentment, truancy and delinquency. Academia is not unaware of these inevitabilities. Their purpose is not an improved education but the decline of achievement and the elimination of the exceptional. Former President Obama expressed a similar derogatory outlook when he denounced high-achieving Americans by saying, “You didn’t build that.”

Diversity in the schools no longer describes a richness of ideas, course studies, or specialty careers, but defines and categorizes the students themselves, by race, religion, ethnicity, financial status, sexual orientation, and however else the students choose to differentiate themselves. As with the term “equity,” the meaning of “diversity” has been corrupted, as it now implies division, divisiveness, and discord, the opposite of E Pluribus Unum — Out of many, One. These differences have led to a totalitarian-style monitoring and bullying — called Speech Control, necessitating “Diversity Officers” with doctoral degrees, credentials in counseling and inclusion techniques, and six-figure salaries reflected in higher tuition costs. The officers’ mere presence confirms the growing disharmony, isolation, discrimination, harassment, and violence that characterize the socialist strategy. These points are significant:

What Drives the Jews to the AfD?

It is commonly assumed by the media — and also much of the general public — that Jews in Germany are afraid of the “right-extreme” AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany) because of its alleged Jew-hatred.

However, as most of us “Islamophobes” know, the real source of Jew-hatred in Germany and elsewhere in Western Europe lies on the Left, and especially among Muslims, who have formed an alliance with the Jew-hating Left.

The following video from Junge Freiheit features a discussion about Jews in the AfD, with two members of a group called the Federal Association of Jews in the AfD as special guests. They explain that the AfD actually enjoys widespread support from Jews in Germany, but news about this is routinely suppressed by the prominent Jewish interest groups that are in bed with the German establishment — or more precisely, with the international globalists who call the shots for the German establishment. Those mainstream Jewish groups, along with analogous Catholic and Protestant interest groups, routinely propagandize against the AfD.

The Three Monkeys

by Tabitha Korol

Even when one American — who has done nothing wrong — is forced by fear to shut his mind and close his mouth, then all Americans are in peril. — Harry Truman

Some years ago, when I visited family in Buenos Aires, I was taken to a country club, one that no doubt had been quite fashionable in its heyday, an era of more than a half-century before. What I saw now were the remnants of elegance, broken tile floors and grounds that were surrendering to the incursion of weeds, signs of a government that was not of, by, or for the people.

I was introduced to Beatriz, one of a group sitting poolside who spoke enough English to complement my conversance in Spanish. Her interests included theater, but she soon came around to expressing her disdain for America because we had the temerity to build the tallest Twin Towers of the World Trade Center to flaunt our wealth and we were therefore deserving of the 9/11 destruction! I explained that America was not in the real estate business, that businesses constructed buildings high enough to accommodate more companies on an island that could not expand into the surrounding ocean — and does envy render pardonable the death of thousands? I’d already known about and noted that Dubai held the dubious honor of having the world’s tallest building and I have since learned that America’s first skyscraper was the Home Insurance Building in Chicago in 1886. A formidable ten stories high! What an impudent undertaking!

She also disparaged America because she reads so much about our country in their local papers, but so little of her own. I clarified our freedom of the press, that our journalists were free to report about anything to be read anywhere, whereas Argentina’s despotic regime undoubtedly controlled what was reported or withheld from the public. Our chat soon dwindled, and we turned to join other conversations. I suppose Beatriz would now be gleeful to learn that our socialist news sources also withhold the news, and actually craft their reports to suit their biased perspective.

We were born with a power of thought and speech, the ability to ideate and communicate to others, our equals under God and superior to other life forms. Yet there is a powerful faction, a self-anointed, arrogant cabal of leftists, socialists, globalists, the sharia-compliant, and the United Nations — that has placed itself beyond criticism, determined to destroy our humanity. In true totalitarian fashion, they have long been indoctrinating our vulnerable youth in schools, while the media brainwash the population at large, special forces (CAIR) influence our clergy, and shadow opponents work against our duly elected president.

With God removed from the classroom during the Obama years, and more recently from the oaths in Congress, the new, highest “Authority” fills the void, and the weak in faith and the undereducated succumb to the new rulers. The Authority now has the facility to take God-given life, before and after birth, and use any means and myths to threaten destruction and visit misery upon the masses.

Indoctrination is used to manipulate, make fearful, insinuate doubt and distrust of centuries-old truths, Biblical concepts of morality and basic human rights, science and logic. Our history is dismissed as inaccurate and evil, our Constitution proclaimed inessential. In fact, without amending the Constitution, the Authority has profoundly impacted the First Amendment with its control over the press/media and our freedom of speech. Words have been expunged from our vocabulary through intimidation or had their definitions twisted, so that “diversity” has led to more polarization, justice to “social justice,” liberty denounced for equality, and the FBI manuals purged of crucial information to disguise the threat of the lethal ideology of Islam. Children are immersed in Islamic rituals, prayers, and anti-Zionist ethnic studies, learn nothing about the dangers of totalitarianism, and the public is bullied into silence.

It’s Poppy Time

It’s Poppy Time

“Religion is the opiate of the people,” said a man who was busy creating his own political religion.

Opioids are very dangerous and powerful drugs. They sit in the bodies’ pain receptors and calm them, but at the same time they distort those receptors so that that the bodies’ own natural painkillers no longer work. This is why ‘cold turkey’ is very painful.

Karl Marx was building a religion, a religion aimed at bringing down Judeo-Christianity and free market capitalism and replacing it with a revised form of secular feudalism and an associated cartelism.

He identified an enemy: the ‘class’ enemy, consisting of any nebulous personage who disagreed with his doctrine or offered a threat to it.

He also discarded conventional morality, a morality based upon the journey, not the destination. His doctrine held that the desirability of the destination justifies any immoral action required to get there.

In this, he, Marx, whether knowingly or unknowingly, was following the same path as his predecessor, Mohammed, over a thousand years earlier.

We do not have much actual history about Mohammed, but we can see the results of his religion. It, too, was primarily a political religion, and it, too, expanded massively and violently and without mercy. Convert, be enslaved or die.

And the ‘cold turkey’ of political religion is also very painful.

We are looking here at the highly intoxicating effects of the same, but deeper problem of humanity — the innate desire to be part of something, to enslave and maybe to be enslaved by a ‘good’ cause; to be part of something exciting.

Historians tend not to use the word ‘slave’. It is too emotive, so they use euphemisms: vassals, serfs, workers, peons, the proletariat, indentured servants, and the like. We reserve the word ‘slave’ for use when we want to emphasize a negative cause.

But slavery is the normal state of mankind, and what was so exceptional about the Bible was that it described the way Yahovah took His people out of slavery. That was the real revolution. It was that revolution that inspired Protestant Christianity in the West, along with the translation/printing of the bible in the common languages — the real revolutionaries being the likes of Luther, Tyndale, Cranmer, Latimer and Ridley, whose ideas led King James to authorise a public version of the Bible in English.

So the great British anti-slavery movement had its roots in the Exodus of the King James Bible, and likewise in the USA.
