Culture-Enriching Gang Rape in the Canary Islands

The rambunctious “youths” of Gran Canaria are at it again with their culture-enriching shenanigans in their new home.

Gran Canaria: Gang rape of a 36-year-old woman — four North Africans arrested

In the town of Puerto Rico on Gran Canaria, part of the municipality of Mogán, the handcuffs clicked on four migrants yesterday. The men of Maghrebian origin are accused of raping a 36-year-old woman in a local park on Friday.

As reported by La Provincia, the victim is an Irish national who has lived with her family in the community for years. After the incident, the woman first went to a health center and filed a complaint with the doctor’s report on Sunday.

Thanks to a good personal description, all four men who recently came illegally on a boat to Gran Canaria were arrested yesterday on Monday. They previously lived in tourist facilities in the municipalities of San Bartolomé de Tirajana and Mogán but were expelled from there. One of them was no stranger to the officials. He has already had several relevant criminal records.

The Cancelling of Dr. Seuss

When I was about nine years old I liked to read the Hardy Boys mystery books. The first in the series was published in the late 1920s, and the publisher continued putting out titles until long after I was grown up.

In the late 1950s, as the cultural trend now known as political correctness was just getting started, the publishers ordered a rewrite of the older Hardy Boys books. To be fair, it was only partially for PC reasons. Yes, it’s true that the books’ depictions of negroes in the ’20s and ’30s tended towards the “sho nuff” and “dat sure am good” sort of stereotypes. But there were also rumble seats and roadsters and other dated cultural artifacts that had to be revised in order to make sense to the boomer generation. Needless to say, the new versions were less interesting than the originals. Boys like me held onto their ragged old copies rather than buy the new ones, and fortunately my school library had a lot of the old ones — that was in the days before libraries purged their collections for politically correct reasons.

My favorite books, however, were those by the immortal Dr. Seuss. His early works — before about 1957 — were (and are) timelessly superb. My mother thoughtfully preserved my Dr. Seuss collection, so that when the future Baron came along, I only had to acquire the newer books (some of them — a lot of the later ones are not at all interesting). Reading the old books to him when he was little reminded me of how wonderful they were.

About two-thirds of our combined Dr. Seuss collection here in Schloss Bodissey consists of my old books, most of them worn and tattered and taped together after being well-loved by two generations of kids. Some of the titles from the mid to late ’50s came from the first printing.

Considering what can be found in those old books, it was obvious that Dr. Seuss would someday have to be cancelled. When I saw the list of six titles that were withdrawn from publication a few days ago, I realized that I had four of them on the bookshelf right here in the Eyrie — McElligot’s Pool, If I Ran the Zoo, Scrambled Eggs Super, and On Beyond Zebra. According to various news stories, they are now available on Amazon only as “used” or “collectible”, with prices ranging from about $100 to as much as $2,500. If I wanted to cash out, I could make a fair amount of money on them. But it’s not worth it — I’d rather have the books.

Out of curiosity, I went through those four titles to see what racial heresies they contained to earn the ire of the Woke mob. If I Ran the Zoo was the most obvious — the image at the top of this post is taken from it. Those native bearers are undeniably sambos, and we can’t have that, now, can we?

In addition there was this one:

Yep, they’re definitely slants. Now, maybe if he had dressed them in business suits like real Chinese he could have skated by. Better yet, to make it realistic, he could have had the Chinese businessmen riding on top of the cage while the American boy carried it.

And then there’s the sheikh from the Desert of Zind. I’m not sure if he counts as a racial stereotype, but he kind of looks like an Arab, and he’s riding something that looks vaguely like a camel.

The sheikh clearly needs to be cancelled, too.

I couldn’t remember anything racist from McElligot’s Pool, so I paged through it trying to find the offending image. Sure enough, there was this:

Not only does the fellow at the top live in an igloo (with a stovepipe, no less), but the fish with the little furry parkas are Eskimo fish. Oh, the humanity!

It was much harder to discern why On Beyond Zebra had roused the wrath of the Wokistas. The only possible candidate I could see was the Nazzim of Bazzim:

Knife Jihad in Vetlanda

Earlier today a young culture-enricher went on a stabbing rampage in the Swedish town of Vetlanda. Fortunately, no one was killed in the incident, but a number of victims were hospitalized.

The following video report came out just after the attack. Since then the incident has been upgraded from “attempted murder” to a “terror crime”. Early reports said that four people were wounded, but the number was later increased to eight.

The ethnicity of the perpetrator does not yet appear in news reports, but there are rumors that he is an Afghan.

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

Statement by Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven concerning the attack in Vetlanda, as published by Expressen (also translated by Gary Fouse):

This evening I am thinking of those injured in Vetlanda and their relatives. I condemn this terrible act of violence.

We confront these heinous acts with the collective power of society.

Right now it is unclear exactly what happened and what the motive was, but police describe it as a single perpetrator who attacked and seriously injured several persons in central Vetlanda. A suspected perpetrator has been arrested. Against the background of what has emerged thus far in the police investigation, the prosecutor has initiated a preliminary investigation into a terrorist crime. Police authorities and the Security Police work in close cooperation on incidents such as this. They continuously judge whether there are reasons to take heightened security measures, and are prepared to do this if needed.

Police authorities are now taking investigative and security-enhancing measures and have initiated a special incident procedure to better handle the incident. We have ongoing contact with police authorities and the Security Police and are following the events closely.

We are mindful of how fragile our safety is. I want to urge everyone to send a thought to those affected by violence and to the men and women in healthcare, police, and the municipalities who work to care for the injured and restore safety.

Morals Guards’ Brutal Beating in Vienna

February 28, 2021

Brutal scenes played out in the Inner City of Vienna a few days ago. A young man beat a Viennese — others filmed the attack.

They are scenes that bring back memories of the Morals Guardian attack from previous years. A video played on Heute shows how a young dark-skinned Viennese is surrounded in a small side street in the inner city by several teenagers. Shortly after that, one of the group punches the defenseless victim. The attacker strikes him in the face several times with his fist. The brutal attack was also filmed by an unknown person. This person encourages the attacker in Russian to continue and cheers him on.

As Heute has learned, the young Viennese was beaten up by the Kaentner passageway in the inner city. Exactly when the video was recorded and why the young man was attacked is as yet unclear. The Vienna Police have begun an investigation into the incident.

Morals Guard boss arrested in Vienna

As early as November the police were able to investigate and arrest the leader of the self-proclaimed Morals Guards — more on that here. The 20-year-old suspect is known to the police and has multiple prior arrests.

After the last Morals Guard attack, the interior minister, Karl Nehammer, reacted with hard criticism. “Every form of parallel society is intolerable in our country. The self-image of the Morals Guards alone is opposed to our peaceful coexistence. We do not allow our fundamental democratic principles to be compromised by such perfidious and self-appointed ideologues. Those who do not accept that place themselves on the extreme edge of our society.”

Swedish Demographer Discusses COVID-Related Mortality

The following video from Swedish state television provides a useful graphical illustration of the death rate in Sweden before and during the Wuhan Coronavirus crisis. As in other countries, Sweden experienced a spike in deaths last spring, and another smaller one later in the year. However, the overall number of deaths during 2020 was not greatly anomalous — and far less than past pandemics in which no restrictive measures were imposed.

Culture-Enriching Gang Violence in Sweden

The following video shows a severe beating meted out against one young man by six others, probably in the Gothenburg area. The footage only came to light as part of a different police investigation; it was never reported by the victim.

As usual, the report says nothing about ethnicity. However, judging by the vicious nature of the gang violence, and the machete, there’s an almost 100% chance that the victim and the perpetrators are all culture-enrichers.

Video: Machete Gang stomps on boy’s head over and over again

March 1, 2021

“Efterlyst” (Wanted List) on TV3 has now come out with a video which shows the way a boy or young man was brutally beaten by a gang armed with a machete and knife. Police now want information on the incident to be able to find the guilty persons.

“Who did you say ‘bastard’ to?” one of the perpetrators is heard shouting in the video, which police found after the emptying of a mobile phone in connection with a separate crime investigation.

You then see the way the gang, which consists of six persons, brutally beats the victim. Three of them repeatedly kick him in the head.

“That it was filmed one could say is humiliation in a double sense,” says the investigator Malin Ärlebo in Efterlyst.

Efterlyst has released an image of one of the perpetrators, he who is seen holding a machete. This is since he is over the age of majority, while the others are considered to be under 18 years.

Another person in the gang is seen holding a knife.

Police suspect that the beating took place in Göteborgstrakten [Gothenburg area] since it was there the mobile phone emptying was done.

Police now want all information possible about the video. Who was involved, who filmed it, when and where it happened, writes Efterlyst.

Those who have information to provide can contact police at 114-14.

Rape in Sweden is a Culture-Enriching Crime

According to a recent Swedish study, 60% of rapists were born abroad or have a “migration background”. The obvious response is: “Really? Only 60%??”

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from Samtiden, which is published by Sverigedemokraterna (the Sweden Democrats):

Behind the majority of all rapes: immigrant men

February 26, 2021

A new research study concerning more than 3,000 convicted men shows that 60% are first or second-generation immigrants, and that almost half were previously convicted of violent crimes.

8,820 rapes and attempted rapes were reported in 2019 to police. Since 2010 the number has increased 44%, according to the Crime Prevention Council (Brå).

The research group at Lund University identified and charted different characteristics and background factors for all convicted rapists between 2000 an d 2015. No similar study has ever been done.

Majority with an immigrant background

Half of the rapes were committed by men born abroad. Another 10% had an immigrant background. In all, 60% of perpetrators were either first or second-generation immigrants.

Among those with immigrant background, the most common were those born in the Middle East/North Africa (34.5%), followed by Africa (19.1%), then Eastern Europe (15%).

“The immigrant background was nothing we investigated specifically; it was just one of the many variables. But the proportions here were something that surprised us,” says Kristina Sundquist, professor of general medicine and clinical epidemiology at Lund University to Kvällsposten.

Half of all convicted rapists (men) had previously been convicted of violent crimes, and one-third were on some form of social assistance. More often than not they resided in a socially vulnerable area and had a lower IQ than average (this includes, however, the ⅔ of those in the data.)

Large percentage without previous offenses

Researchers have been able, through studies, to identify two different types of rapists. One is the expected one: those with criminal careers and those who have abuse or psychiatric problems. They live in society’s shadow with welfare dependency, low school grades, low IQ, and a low tolerance for stress.

“It is a little surprising that we have persons who don’t have a criminal career behind them but who can commit such serious violent crimes,” says the criminologist and assistant professor in acute care, Ardavan Khoshnood.

That the larger group of convicted rapists have no previous crime or known social problems in their baggage should reasonably affect the work of the police perpetrator profile group, he believes.

“They usually go from statistics as to which crime this type of perpetrator previously committed. But here we suddenly have a class that has hardly committed any crime before and that is not particularly socially vulnerable. That is the biggest group of rapists, and these are people that society misses. That is worrisome.”

Better Watch What You Say About Mutti

Heinz Hermann Thiele was a prominent German businessman, a billionaire — one of the richest men in Germany — and the largest shareholder in Lufthansa. He died suddenly last Tuesday at the age of 79. I haven’t been able to find a cause of death listed for him, but there may be something about it in German.

However, I do know that Mr. Thiele was a vocal public critic of Chancellor Angela Merkel, as the video clip below demonstrates. I have no idea whether that fact has anything to do with his sudden demise.
