All the Fake News That’s Unfit to Print

The following article reminds me of the notorious Washington Post feature on Jimmy the 8-year-old heroin addict. It was written by Janet Cooke and printed in the paper in the fall of 1980. The author won a Pulitzer Prize for her work, but a few months later the story began to unravel. It eventually emerged that the account was entirely fabricated, and Ms. Cooke had to return her prize and resign. Her name became synonymous with “fraudulent journalism”.

Nothing numbs the critical faculties of newspaper editors like the tear-jerking plight of the Puir Wee Bairns.

Four years after the Relotius scandal*

Doubts about the death of refugee girls: Spiegel takes its own article offline

Almost four years after the Relotius scandal, Der Spiegel again has a problem with some of its articles. There are doubts about the truthfulness of Spiegel reports from last August. Specifically, it is about a refugee girl who is said to have died on an island between Turkey and Greece.

Der Spiegel has now taken four articles about the case offline. Instead, the editors have published a statement under the respective URLs. Under the headline “Death trap EU border” of the original article from August 19th, 2022 it now says: “At this point there was an article about the fate of a group of refugees on the Greek-Turkish border river Evros in the summer of 2022. There are now doubts about the previous description of what happened at that time. We have therefore temporarily removed several posts on this topic from our website. We are reviewing our reporting and, once the research is complete, will decide whether or not to republish the articles in a corrected and updated form.” [Shouldn’t professional journalists research BEFORE they publish something? Or could it be, since this story fits the narrative, this isn’t done?]

Letter to Spiegel from Greek migration minister

As Medieninsider reports, there are not just doubts about the death of the girl. It is therefore unclear whether she existed at all. In one of the articles in question, the Spiegel reporter wrote accusingly, according to Medieninsider: “Now Maria is dead. She died at the beginning of August at Europe’s external border because the Greek authorities refused her any help. She had just turned five years old.”

According to Medieninsider, Greek Migration Minister Notis Mitarachi expressed doubts, which he also shared with Spiegel editor-in-chief Steffen Klusmann in a letter in September. According to Medieninsider, Mitarachi accused the reporter of the Hamburg news magazine of having acquired the information on the case from non-governmental organizations (NGOs) almost unfiltered. And most importantly, “From the facts and all photographic evidence, it is clear that there is no missing child, let alone a dead child.”

The Unmentioned Surge in Excess Deaths

In the following video Paul Weston discusses this year’s wave of excess deaths in England, which make the “Great Plague Year” of 2020 pale by comparison. What he describes is similar to what has been occurring in Continental Europe, Canada, the United States, and all the other countries that pushed their citizens to get “vaccinated”. Yet, for some reason, the media refuse to talk about it.

Paul Weston is a British-based writer who focuses on the damage done to Western Civilisation by the hard left’s ongoing cultural revolution, which seeks to destroy the Christian, capitalist and racial base of the West. For links to his previous essays, see the Paul Weston Archives.

Narratives

The two videos below have nothing in common except for the fact that they highlight narratives being pushed by globalists and the media. Actually, they are really just peddling various aspects of a single Narrative, for there is only one: the Grand Narrative of sustainability, global governance, and the submission of the citizenry to the dictates of an all-powerful state.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for uploading these videos.

The first clip concerns the efforts exerted by Pfizer to collect child volunteers for their experimental mRNA treatment intended to mitigate the effects of infection with the Wuhan Coronavirus, and then two years later their efforts to cure children suffering from myocarditis. That is, first the merchandisers of the “vaccine” created an unnatural rise in myocarditis and pericarditis, and then they rushed out a miraculous new cure for the disease! The Narrative requires that all mention of a connection between the first part of the story and the second must be omitted:

The second video features the attempt by MSNBC to browbeat Trump supporters with the Narrative about the “insurrection” of January 6, 2021. The media chick does her best to corner the MAGA people, but ends up being bested by them (in my opinion):

The Narrative is not done with us yet, not by a long shot.

Culturecide

The following essay was posted earlier today at Vlad Tepes in a slightly different form. Vlad embedded the videos in the original post, but I’ve just included them as links.

It is about stopping people from reproducing

by Eeyore

All of it, from what I can tell. First, watch the opening 40 seconds of this video where it is revealed that the group the EU wants injected with Covid shots the most is pregnant women:

[video]

The list of legal changes, not to mention attacks and transformations on the culture all have a few things in common depending on what level of abstraction we operate on. But at the practical its for sure one result. Making normal human reproduction nearly impossible and certainly very undesirable. In fact, changing the cost-benefit of having a family in every possible metric, sexually, psychologically, financially and in every way.

So let’s look at some of the things which make reproduction less likely. These are not in chronological order. Just the order I remember them.

Feminism: The original Feminist project was a rebranding of a Marxist line of effort to make marriage and families difficult. To collapse the West by creating a “war of the sexes” (before they came up with the word “gender”) when in the 200,000 years of human evolution prior to that, there was no war of the sexes. Below is an interview I did with an expert on feminism, Karen Straughan, back in 2018. It is still interesting and to the point, in my opinion. Karen is actually listed at the SPLC as a Male Supremacist enabler. So you know she has to be worth listening to. She covers a lot in this video, including insane and unfair divorce laws which also make people less likely to have children.

(There is some language in this video)

[video]

Experimental mRNA injections: We have been writing daily about these shots. But it became known early on that the spike proteins your own body makes by the trillions after the shot have a special affinity for ACE2 receptors. These can be found in the heart, but especially in the endometrium and also the gonads. Both male and female. Dr. Chris Shoemaker reported that there is a dramatic drop in sperm production for six months after each injection. Which is quite a coincidence, as that is when WEF-controlled Western governments seem to demand the entire population space out their shots. At least one every six months.

I should add that Bill Gates introduced a vaccine to India some years ago which had the effect of sterilizing a lot of people who received it. One may suspect that was the primary purpose of that shot, since the effect was so far afield from the one for which it was administered.

Also, here a Kenyan medical doctor reminds us that attempts to sterilize people with vaccines is not new.

Children’s Health Defence documentary on use of vaccines to sterilize third world populations

Infertility: A diabolical agenda

Glorification of all sexuality other than heterosexual which could lead to conception:

Gay pride is all year. A flag substantially larger than the US flag was photographed hanging on the side of the US Embassy in Ottawa well after “pride month” was ended. It was the new flag that includes every possible sexual activity other than men with women and women with men. Homosexuality is positively canonized. Criticism of any sexual activity other than men with women is pretty much a crime, as Canada’s loathsome hate-speech laws now include non-“heteronormative” groups as needing the protection of censorship. One of the cabinet members of British Colombia, BC’s health minister Dr. Bonnie Henry, during Covid suggested along with social isolation and masks and so on, that men use “glory holes”. Can’t imagine why you wouldn’t get Covid that way, but I can see how no one gets pregnant. But then, BLM protests and ANTIFA protests where also immune from Covid. Only conservative gatherings were a health risk in 2020.

Fade Away and Radiate

Ever since early 2020 the dominant theme in popular culture has been: Be afraid. Be very afraid.

For the last few months we’ve been inundated with propaganda about nuclear war.

After the Corona craze had run its course, we had a brief interlude of monkeypox hysteria, but that never seemed to develop the momentum necessary for a full-blown panic. So now we’ve moved on to the Ukraine crisis, and the evil Vladimir Putin, as a source of doom-and-gloom media histrionics.

The nuclear war theme emerged fairly soon after Russia invaded Ukraine. There was a big push to paint Mr. Putin as threatening to use nukes, even though he never did any such thing. At the same time we started to see “what to do in the event of a nuclear attack” PSAs in various major American cities. And the mainstream media kept up their fear-mongering with various nuclear-themed reports — retrospectives on the Cuban Missile Crisis and other incidents of nuclear alarms during the Cold War, analyses of what a nuclear blast would do to this or that major city, how to deal with radiation poisoning, etc.

I’ve recently come to the conclusion that a nuclear war is very unlikely, although I expect a “radiation incident” fairly soon, possibly even before the midterm elections.

The reason I say this is that the globalists of the New World Order, as exemplified by the World Economic Forum, are obviously not anticipating any nuclear attacks. They are ramping up their push for digital central bank currencies, social credit scores, 5G technology, the Internet of Things (and Bodies) and other long-term projects that involve intensive electronic infrastructure. That’s how we know they’re not planning for the grid to go down. They must have mapped out a way to keep enough juice flowing to at least keep the cell towers functioning, even during the horrific energy shortages that lie directly ahead.

Since the globalists, the media, and the top levels of the Western political apparatus are all in league with each other, we may assume that the nuclear war scare is in fact a feint.

I have a theory about the reason for it.

First they make sure the populace is terrified of a nuclear attack.

Then a “radiation incident” of some sort is arranged. Probably in Ukraine, via the false-flag use of a tactical nuke, perhaps, or an “accident” at one of the nuclear power plants, most likely the one in Zaporizhzhia.

As a result everybody in the West, especially in Europe, becomes frantic about radiation poisoning.

Then guess what happens?

Surprise! Pfizer and other pharmaceutical giants devise injections that mitigate the effects of radiation disease!

Rolled out at warp speed in just a few weeks. Administered by medical workers fitted out in radiation suits. Everybody is urged to show up at designated injection sites and get their “protective shots”.

They get everybody trembling in fear over the radiation, and then they provide the magical solution: yet more injections.

Compliance with the “booster” regime has fallen off to less than 25% in most countries, so something else is needed. A radiation incident is just the thing.

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

The push for more injections has been intense and obvious since late 2020. The big question is: WHY?

The flu shot was never pushed anywhere near as hard as the series of mRNA jabs. I’ve never in my lifetime seen anything like the propaganda blitz that we’ve been subjected to on behalf of the experimental “vaccine”. Somebody really, really wants to see more needles in arms.

The evidence for the harmful effects of the mRNA treatments is now undeniable. They are especially contra-indicated for small children, and now the CDC has just given its imprimatur to a new regime that will, in effect, force parents to have their kids vaxed in order for them to attend public schools.

Somebody wants needles in arms VERY badly.

I think we can rule out the possibility that top-level health authorities are motivated by the medical well-being of their citizens. It’s fairly clear now that they’re pushing these injections despite the fact that they have been proven harmful.

After browsing various paranoid postings in the deplorable alternative media, I see three possible explanations for this demonic campaign:

“They Are a Criminal Government That Has Betrayed Their Own People”

Santiago Abascal is a leader of the Spanish anti-immigration party Vox. Last Sunday Mr. Abascal addressed a rally in Madrid, which also featured an in-person speech by Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, and video addresses by Donald Trump, Giorgia Meloni, and Viktor Orbán.

For a really biased left-wing report on the rally in Madrid, see this article from ABC News.

Five Chilling Ways The Nuclear Bogeyman Can Frighten You

Our Hungarian correspondent László analyzes the use of the threat of nuclear war as psychological warfare within the West.

Five Chilling Ways The Nuclear Bogeyman Can Frighten You

The Nuclear Threat is Naked

by László

The “nuclear psyop”, which I have written about in several instances on Gates of Vienna (here, here, here and here), is becoming more and more obvious, as the Daily Mirror tabloid mirrors the ludicrousness of the Corona psyop by writing about a Putin in bad health hiding in a bunker while talking to shamans about a tactical nuclear strike he would order (or something like that).

The absurdity of this sort of propaganda has become as apparent as it was during the height of the Corona hoax. “Putin did not even need his own children from his mistresses — a girl and a boy, whom no one is going to evacuate.”, claims the Mirror. The whole article is a laughingstock.

I do think that “They”, once again, underestimate the so-called (tabloid-reading) ‘simple people’ — the working masses — who often have a more grounded sense of reality than their highly-educated (indoctrinated / intellectually arrogant) peers.

This latest amazing fantasy in the Mirror comes after a lot of similar but less Babylon Bee-style, i.e. somewhat more serious-looking, propaganda in the recent days. Some examples:

OK, you are saying, but what would the purpose of such a nuclear psyop be? Well, I think it is “nudging” again — that is, mass-behaviour modification, in order to achieve herd humanity towards the New World Order. Another excuse for tyranny.

Diana West: The Silence of the Institutions

As most readers already know, Diana West is the author of American Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation’s Character. In the following video, Vlad interviews Diana about the COVID hysteria, and the subsequent experimental mRNA treatment that was marketed as a mitigation of the effects of infection with the virus.

Because real information concerning the “vaccines” is largely occluded, discussions about what is going on must of necessity be speculative. There are, however, a few undeniable facts. For example: the propaganda push behind the vax has been the greatest I’ve ever encountered in my lifetime, far greater than any wartime propaganda. Which is remarkable, given that COVID-19 is relatively mild, as contagious diseases go.

That alone tells you that there’s more to this “pandemic” than meets the eye.

Then there are the excess deaths. We’re in the early stages of data collection on this issue, but it’s already clear that something not directly related to Corona is killing a lot of people. No one can say for certain what the causes might be, but what’s happening now is exactly what was predicted by independent critics of the mRNA jabs back in late 2020, before mass “vaccination” began.

Those are just two of the relevant facts. There are many others, such as the bizarre and frightening blood clots that are being pulled out of the circulatory systems of cadavers during autopsies.

Something evil is definitely afoot.

Criminal Lunacy All Across the West

In the following video Paul Weston discusses the dramatic increase in excess deaths in the UK beginning in early 2021. The explosion in mortality stands in stark contrast to the “plague year” of 2020, which was much less deadly:

Summertime

From across the pond — which is drying up now, and will soon be a puddle — our Dutch correspondent H. Numan sends a digest of the overlapping crises that current bedevil the political class in the Netherlands.


The government on summer vacation

Summertime

by H. Numan

Summertime, and the livin’ ain’t easy.
Fish are jumpin’ and the water is low…

I paraphrased George Gershwin’s song to fit our modern times. It’s summertime, and life behind the dikes is worrisome. I’ve got two news stories for you this time. Let’s start with the summertime scare.

We have to be scared into the desired global warming behavior. What used to be normal, a fun time, is now presented as a horror, evidence of global warming. Well, it’s just summer. A bit hot, that’s all. Nothing unusual. However, that is not how the Dutch media present it. Worry! Be afraid! The sky is falling!

The weather maps — you may have noticed it elsewhere, too — are intentionally rigged. In the past a weather map showed sea in blue and land in green. The weather was shown with symbols, plus the temperature. Nothing scary about it. That won’t do in our global warming times. So the weather map today is different. The map is red with temperatures as gradients of red, from light red to black. That’s better! Now people will be worried sick.

Next, a lot of attention is given to the Rhine River. It’s going to run dry, we’re told. Sorry to disappoint. Remember geography in 6th grade? Allow me to refresh your memory. “There are two types of rivers: glacier- and rain-fed rivers. Glacier-fed rivers tend to have less fluctuations. Whereas rain-fed rivers run highest in spring and autumn, after the melt and rains. During summer and winter they tend to have much less volume. Examples are the Rhine (glacier-fed) and Meuse (rain-fed) rivers.”

In other words: nothing to worry about. It’s completely normal for rivers to run low or dry during a warm summer. There is nothing unusual with the unusual. During summer, the Rhine always runs lower. The Meuse occasionally runs dry, or close to it. That’s not a sure sign of global warming. Just a hot summer.

The media also acts as an overly protective mother. People are warned to stay indoors. Which is fun, because Dutch houses are not designed for really hot weather and don’t have airco. Relax, take it easy. As long as you stay indoors. You’ve been locked up during Covid, you know the drill by now. Wear insanely strong sun blockers, if you have to go outside. Don’t forget to hydrate. Because global warming!

I’ve got (real) news for you, folks. Yes, the climate is changing. Nothing usual, it always does. But not as globalists tell you. The KNMI (Dutch weather bureau) keeps weather data religiously. Nothing will ever be deleted. But… they are more than happy to exclude what they don’t like, and sanitize the remainder so it fits the desired narrative. For example, they exclude temperature readings before 1890 in their calculations ‘as they are irrelevant’, that sort of thing. They don’t delete it, they merely ignore it. What’s left is data that proves global warming.

A Dutch scientist, Syp Wynia, had a look at KNMI data, but from a different angle. He looked at the prevailing wind direction over the last century and the consequences. His conclusion? The prevailing wind direction is now south-west most of the year. It used to be the prevalent direction during spring-summer-autumn. In autumn-winter, the wind changed to the northeast, bringing cold fronts from Russia.

Over the last 40 years, he found much less wind comes from the northeast. What are the consequences? Northeasterly winds bring cold dry weather. Southwesterly winds bring warm wet weather. During summer not much changed, but our winters are about 20% wetter than 40 years ago, and not as cold. Cold winters with snow and ice are now rare. Temperatures hover around freezing or a few degrees above zero. And it rains a lot more in winter. That raises the annual temperature considerably in coastal Europe. As you can see, no carbon emissions are involved. Actually, we have no idea why this happened. Even if we eventually discover why, that doesn’t mean we can change anything about it.

The next piece of news is our very wobbly cabinet. There isn’t just one crisis they have to survive. A plethora of crises has to be managed, right now. Tossing money at it or looking the other way won’t work this time. I doubt prime minister Rutte and his cabinet can do that. Here’s a selection of the most urgent problems. Not all of them, mind you. That list would be way too long:

1. Inflation is sky high and consumer trust at a record low.

Inflation is at the highest level in four decades, and consumer trust is completely gone. Everybody now realizes the worst is yet to come. Winter is coming!

2. Gas prizes are crazy high.

Not for the reason you think. Gas prizes are high everywhere; that’s not it. The reason is how the Dutch government charges for it. The Dutch natural gas rates are the highest in the world. But for Dutch consumers only. Belgians pay half the price the Dutch pay for natural gas. Where do they buy that cheaper gas? In Holland! The government hitched the prices for natural gas to the international oil prices. For Dutch only. Internationally they’re more than happy to give a very steep discount. That worked when the prices were low and we had plenty of gas. Now that we’re running out of it, and prices are higher than the Eiffel tower, it doesn’t. More than a million Dutch are staring at real poverty.

3. Not enough houses.

What’s Missing From This Picture?

The examples below (posted a little while ago at Vlad Tepes) are illustrative of the way the Western media would report on the massacre at Tiananmen Square if it were to happen today.

Wong Wing, a 30-year-old flight instructor, died suddenly today while away from his home. He is survived by his family, which is his wife and son. He will be missed.

Hu Flung Pu died suddenly this afternoon while seeming to attempt to direct traffic. He is survived by his wife and son and will be severely missed.

Wai So Dim passed away suddenly today while cleaning treads on a government vehicle. No cause of death is known and his family, which consists of his wife and son, are dumbstruck by his sudden passing. He was young and in the peak of good health.

No Pah King mysteriously passed away while just standing still this afternoon enjoying the sunshine. He was known to be in excellent health and people near him at the time say he was an excellent runner. He is survived by his wife and son who expressed deep understanding at Mr. King’s passing. He will be missed.

Hu Yu Hai Ding was discovered dead and mysteriously flat today at a government park. Cause of death not known but there has been an increase in reported deaths of people who are far flatter than is recommended for good health. Hu Yu was 19 at the time of his passing. He is survived by his mother and father, and wife who is expecting a son. The government has issued a warning not to stand near anything that may cause a person to become flatter than normal.

How Long was reported missing today after his wife found him covering a large section of a well-known public area. No cause of death is known but it has recently been determined that being young, healthy and athletic with no bad habits actually can be very bad for your health.

Low Fat, a 22-year-old nutritionist died suddenly today while sunning himself on a large concrete square. It is now said that sunshine and fresh air can be worse for your health than cigarette smoke and factory air. He is survived by his wife and son.

An Adverse Event in the Pool for an Olympic Swimmer

The following example of an aquatic adverse reaction to the “vaccination” happened to occur in the bailiwick of Our Hungarian correspondent László. He was prompted to investigate, and sends this report.

An Adverse Event in the Pool for an Olympic Swimmer

by László

This is an amazing story, but not for the reason the MSM presents it:

Fully Vaccinated Olympic Swimmer Fainted in Pool Six Weeks After Second Jab

It is amazing the way the MSM is covering it up.

My take:

Double-jabbed Olympic swimmer gets rescued from drowning; MSM explains it away without mentioning that she had been ‘vaxxed’

It happened in Budapest that an Olympic swimmer fainted in the pool and had to be rescued. Look at the photos; they are truly astonishing.

I got the clue that it might have been about the clotshot when I saw “Father Vax of Hungary”, the heart specialist and chief jab propagandist Dr. Béla Merkely, come out to explain it all away by saying that this sport is probably not for her because not everyone can endure high levels of CO2 in the body:

According to Béla Merkely, it was later revealed that Anita Alvarez had a similar illness before. “There are different types of athletes, some of them are fine with the alternation of oxygen and carbon dioxide. But some are more sensitive, and she is one of them.

“It’s probably not the sport for her.”

— said Béla Merkely after the incident.

“Illness”? “It is not her sport”? Very awkward explanations.

So after this mumbo-jumbo by “Father Vax” Merkely in the news, I began to suspect that it was a cover-up, and that the accident might have had to do something with the jab. Therefore I started investigating online. It was difficult to find anything — none of the mainstream media mentions her vax status, yet the world press is full of the astonishing photos of the underwater rescue.

This is how the MSM explains it away:

Are We Being Replaced?

Below is an overview of the Great Replacement by H. Numan from a Dutch perspective.

Are we being replaced?

by H. Numan

At this moment an old debate is being stirred up in The Netherlands. Conservative parties (PVV, FvD) openly question ‘omvolking’, or replacement by muslims. This is very much a taboo subject, proving to left-wing parties that the PVV and FvD really are definitely fascist. Otherwise they wouldn’t dare break the taboo. I’m describing the situation in The Netherlands, but it is roughly the same in other Western European countries, with local variations.

Let’s start with the camel in the room. Are we being replaced by muslims? De jure, no. The Dutch government never formulated such a policy. Neither has any other government in Europe. That means the Replacement Theory is, strictly speaking, a false one. However, the facts speak for themselves. De facto we are being replaced. We’re just not allowed to acknowledge the fact.

The next question is: Why are we being replaced? Greed. Pure unmitigated selfish greed. Nothing else. From day 1, some people made a lot of money out of it, or built their careers on it. I know quite a few people who did exactly that. Privately, they vent their hatred of the subjects that provide their income. But not from 9 to 5. I’m talking about social workers here. You have no idea how they think privately about muslim migrants. Until it’s time to go to work, of course. From 9 to 5 they are more social than Mother Theresa and Lenin combined. Once they clock out, they put on their white sheets and give any Grand Kleagle a run for his money.

However, you have to dance to the tune. If you don’t, doors close. Usually very quietly: people avoid you, don’t want to do business with you or promote someone else. Sometimes it’s quite open. They publicly say you are a neo-Nazi. Yes, I’m talking about enlightened well-educated socialists who are open to all opinions and love a debate. Except when it doesn’t correspond with their viewpoints. Sound familiar?

The problems began right after World War Two. There was a huge labor shortage. Understandable, as a lot of men had died during the war. It was even worse; the Dutch army was mobilized and send to the Dutch East Indies to prevent it becoming Indonesia. That’s also an economic problem, because it inevitably caused wages to rise. Something our Christian Democrat and Conservative VVD politicians didn’t like. They were paragons of free market enterprise — except when it came to wages.

The solution was an easy one. Hire scabs. People who are worse off than our poorest. The government recruited first Walloons, followed by Galicians in Spain, Italians and Greeks as ‘gastarbeiders’ or guest laborers. Those guys worked in steel mills and mines for a couple of years, then returned home. Usually because by then there was better-paying and less dangerous work available in their own countries.

The elites quickly came up with the myth of the lazy Dutchman who considered himself too good to work in the mines. The shaming worked, and still does even today. People believe that myth. A fairy tale, because it is simple a matter of making choices. Imagine you are a young man in a rural or poor environment. You can work from 9 to 5 in a factory, for a guilder a day. Or work in shifts in mines or steel mills for 2 guilders a day. You earn a lot more, but the work is very dangerous, hazardous to your health and brutally heavy. You’d be really lucky to live past 50 years. Both factories and mines were screaming for new workers. Understandably, most men opted to work in the factory for less money and a longer life. You and I would do exactly the same.

Once the flow of Greek and Spanish laborers stopped due to improved local economies, recruiters looked south of the Mediterranean and found plenty of takers. They had absolutely no idea what can of worms they were opening. Neither did the politicians.

You see, those people were very different. They came from a totally different culture and religion. Locally, they work according to the principle: anything goes, as long as the referee doesn’t see it. It’s not a problem to lie. Just make sure you are never found out. That’s among themselves. It’s a given with infidels. Here is one cultural difference most Western people refuse to understand. Another one is jizya. Muslims aren’t lying, stealing or cheating. They are merely collecting their dhimmi tax.

Putting Words in Her Mouth

Ebba Busch is the leader of the Christian Democrats in Sweden. The following report describes the way Ms. Busch’s words were deliberately mistranslated by Radio Sweden, the state broadcasting service, in its Arabic, Somali, and Kurdish channels.

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from Nya Dagbladet:

SR accused of deliberate mistranslating of Busch

Disinformation in the media

Isac Boman
May 6, 2022

In Radio Sweden’s Somali, Arab, and Kurdish channels, Ebba Busch’s statement after the Koran riots was translated in a seriously erroneous manner.

Critics believe that the incorrect translations are deliberate, and the Christian Democrats (KD) are demanding a meeting with the leaders of the tax-financed channel.

As Nya Dagbladet was earlier able to report, Ebba Busch, in an interview with Radio Sweden, asked why we didn’t see injured Islamists instead of the 100 (actually at least 180) police who were injured during the riots.

“So we have at least 100 injured police, and the big question that should be asked is: “Why don’t we have at least 100 injured Islamists, criminals, and rioters?”

When Radio Sweden reported on the statements on its channels, the term “Islamists” was suddenly changed to “Muslims” in both the Arab and Somali broadcasts.

The Bonnier* newspaper Dagens Nyheter first reported that Radio Sweden’s Arab-language editorial staff incorrectly reported that Busch asked, “Why have we not seen 100 injured Muslims?”— a mistranslation that was noticed by an Arab-speaking man who also reported the post to the media ombudsman.

Editor-in-Chief Gabi Kratz claimed in defense that it was all a “mistake” that came up in the reading of the same news — in spite of the fact that the incorrect translation was also found in text form on the editor’s official Facebook page.

The site Doku has also revealed that Radio Sweden’s Somali editorial staff incorrectly translated Busch’s statement and used the word, “Muslims” instead of “Islamists”. In addition, a caption in the feature claimed that “KD’s party leader, Ebba, was complaining that police didn’t kill many Muslims.”

The Christian Democrats maintain that there are indications that the incorrect translations are “sitting out there in the system” and demand that Radio Sweden officials explain themselves.

“We are very upset that they are spreading pure lies, and they are doing it on channels where it is the hardest to detect”.

“We demand an explanation and a meeting with the management of Radio Sweden. They must now explain how they run their publishing business. It is four months to the election, and we do not accept disinformation from anyone,” he continues.

Johan Ingerö tweet, May 3 (1)

In addition, who takes responsibility now for their mistranslations? When and where will the Arabic-language denials come?
