I Do Not Like That Ham-I-Am

Our German translator JLH has a few things to say about the latest “News of the Weird” story from South Africa.

One of the many things you can learn by reading the news at Gates of Vienna

by JLH

Let’s see if I understand this. Burger King is removing the syllable “ham” from “hamburger” in South Africa so as not to offend anyone. The best statistic I can uncover is that Islam accounts for 1.5% of the ca. 56 million South Africans. The largest single religious group is Protestant Christianity. In second place are those who profess no religion. It makes you wonder whom Burger King consulted (or was directed by). Certainly not the local Jewish lobby. When is the last time you ever heard the owner of a Jewish deli complain to the ADL about the BBQ bar and grill next door advertising spareribs?

This is a pioneering alteration to the language. The word for a type of sausage originally named after its city of origin is reduced to a severed trunk (-burg) that means “fort.” In US English, at any rate, calling somewhere a “burg” is not particularly flattering. I know because I come from a state with a lot of burgs. If I were a citizen of one of the largest cities in Germany — an international port, a center of trade, and an original member of the Hanseatic League — I would not like to be told that I was living in -burg.

This presents a whole new vista of linguistic change, calling up fond memories of the Hitlerian desire to expunge foreign words and phrases from the German language.

Where else in English, for instance, can we find this insidious infidel word “ham”? Perhaps in the Broadway musical about one of the Founding Fathers — you know, Alexander -ilton. Or in the name of a cute little rodent — the -ster — that is so fond of treadmills. Or, if you don’t want to call a small town a burg, you could call it a -let. And if you damage that place down in the back of your leg, you could say that you hurt your -string. This could lead to some confusion, so it may be better to take the high road and say that you pulled one of the tendons that laterally and medially border the depression in the popliteal fossa. That’s a little clumsy, but there are no infidel words in it. (Unless some really picky Muslim scholar objects to the use of the language of the Roman Church.)

And what if we can’t just remove the offensive syllable? What if that’s all there is? Like “Don’t ham it up.” We just have to substitute, and tell show-offs “Don’t steak it up!” “Don’t be such a steak!”

Just to be safe, we should also do away with the term we use for that crispy stuff we often eat in the morning. The morning special might be called “two eggs any style, with choice of ground infidel meat or infidel crispy stuff.” Alternatively “Canadian infidel crispy stuff and eggs.”

Mexican Racists Thwart the Will of African Migrants

Angry African migrants have gathered at the border crossing from Guatemala to Tapachula in southern Mexico. These culture-enrichers have been battling with the police and demanding free passage through Mexico to El Norte, which they consider their rightful future abode. Anyone who hinders them in their journey is of necessity a WAYCIST.

The Bolsonaro Government Flips the Bird at Emmanuel Macron

Because the Brazilian people elected a populist president rather than a leftist or a globalist, the international community has decided to raise the alarm about fires in the vicinity of the Amazon rainforest, even though the fires are well within the normal range for the season. Fiercer and more extensive fires are currently burning in the African tropics, but the countries involved have not sinned against the New World Order, so there is no alarmed campaign about them in the media.

At the recent G7 meeting in France, President Emmanuel “Toy Boy” Macron led the way in proposing an aid package to manipulate help Brazil during the wildfire “crisis”. In response, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and his ministers were forthright in directing their tongue-lashings towards Mr. Macron and other members of the G7.

Onyx says government will reject G7 financial aid announced by Macron

The French president stated that group will send 20 million euros to combat fires. ‘Perhaps these resources are more relevant to reforest Europe,’ replied the minister.

by Gerson Camarotti and Mateus Rodrigues
August 26, 2019

The Minister of the House, Onyx Lorenzoni, told the blog that the government will reject the aid of the G7 to combat the fires in the Amazon, which was announced on Monday (August 26) by French President Emmanuel Macron. The office of the Planalto Palace confirmed the information given by Onyx.

The aid was announced in France after Macron attended a G7 meeting. According to him, the group decided to allocate €20 million to combat the fire [later, the French government corrected itself and reported that it was $20 million].

The French President and President Jair Bolsonaro have been publicly criticizing each other since last week.

“Thanks, but perhaps these resources are more relevant to reforesting Europe. Can Macron not even prevent a predictable fire in a church that is a World Heritage Site, yet wants to teach something to our country? He has a lot to look after at home and in the French colonies,” Onyx told the blog.

“Brazil is a democratic, free nation, and has never engaged in colonialist and imperialist practices, as is perhaps the objective of the French Macron. Incidentally, coincidentally, with high domestic rejection rates,” added the minister of the Civil House.

Onyx Lorenzoni also said to the blog that Brazil can teach “any nation” how to protect native forests. “By the way, there is no country that has a larger native coverage than ours,” he added.

MRE speaks of ‘redundant initiatives’

By means of a note, the Ministry of Foreign Relations (MRE) reported that despite the “supposed launch of new initiatives related to the Amazon” to reforest the region, there are already instruments provided for this type of measure.

According to the note, the actions are foreseen in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and already include, for example, the payment by developed countries like France of US $30 billion for the reduction in Brazil of greenhouse gas emissions.

“France — and other countries that may support its ideas — are expected to engage seriously in these discussions within the UNFCCC, rather than launching redundant initiatives, with amounts well below their international commitments, and with ambiguous innuendo about the principle of national sovereignty,” states the MRE.

Members of Nigerian Mafia Arrested in Bologna and Turin

The following news story from Italian TV reports on the arrest of members of the Nigerian mafia in two major Italian cities. The report doesn’t specifically mention it, but it seems likely that this group has connections to the “Nigerian cannibal mafia” that murdered and dismembered Pamela Mastropietro in Macerata. That group was also said to have controlled the local trade in drugs and prostitutes.

Below is an article from ANSA (hat tip Insubria) about the arrest of the Nigerians:

Nigerian Mafia Clan Busted

‘Maphite Cult’ ran sex, drug rackets according to ‘Green Bible’

(ANSA) — Bologna, July 18 — A Nigerian mafia clan that allegedly controlled a big chunk of the drugs and prostitution markets in Piedmont and Emilia Romagna was busted by Turin and Bologna police in twin operations on Thursday.

Among those arrested were the heads of the so-called Maphite Cult, which initiated members with burning rituals as well as running sex workers with voodoo rites, keeping ties with other mafias and controlling the drugs flow.

The clan was run according to the rules of their ‘Green Bible’ whose commandments included the ‘Mario Monti’ norm on recycling money to countries of origin, police said.

Interior Minister Matteo Salvini hailed the bust.

“Maxi-operation against the Nigerian mafia, so much for those who denied its existence. Thanks to the police and investigators. We don’t need this kind of immigration. Ports closed, jails open!,” he tweeted.

Ilhan Omar: Incest and Polyandry

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is not really incestuous or polyandrous — the alleged marriage to her brother was never more than a scam, presumably to advance his immigration status. Her main squeeze, whom she belatedly married, was not her husband when she falsely filed joint tax returns with him. So there was no bigamy, just plain old tax fraud.

For the rest of this post, readers are asked to mentally insert the word “alleged” in front of any description of a crime or potential crime. Except for the fraudulent tax returns — which are documented in the public record — Rep. Omar has not been convicted of any crime, so the “alleged”s are de rigueur. Nor has she been investigated for any of the other crimes, as far as I know. Since she is a Woke Woman of Color, and a Muslim to boot, she generally gets a free pass.

She has refused to answer any questions about her siblings, her marriage to her brother, or related matters. Her spokesbeings uniformly dismiss such questions as evidence of “bigotry” — even when they are asked by The Star-Tribune­, the local Minneapolis paper that has served as her own unpaid PR firm from the inception of her career. Yes, even the earnest Progressives of the Strib are bigoted if they ask Saint Ilhan about her marriage to her brother.

The “bigotry” charge is, as usual, more than enough to deflect any serious media inquiries into the matter. Not that the MSM needs any real deflection — a Progressive Muslim woman of color is close enough to their idea of a perfect politician to ensure that they accept the Congressmuslima’s press releases as the gospel truth.

For the past three years three non-MSM people have been digging deeply into Ilhan Omar’s (or really, Ilhan Elmi’s) shady dealings. Two of them, Scott Johnson of Power Line and David Steinberg, formerly of PJM, have collaborated to do the investigative work that the “journalists” should have been doing, but haven’t.

Scott Johnson appeared on Tucker Carlson’s program to discuss the devastating information in David Steinberg’s latest report, which was published yesterday at Power Line:

Innocent Oseghale Becomes Guilty Oseghale for the Murder of Pamela Mastropietro

An illegal immigrant from Nigeria named Innocent Oseghale has been sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder and dismemberment of an 18-year-old girl named Pamela Mastropietro. Mr. Oseghale had stayed on in Italy after his residence permit expired, making his living as part of a gang that smuggled and sold drugs. In January of 2018 he lured Ms. Mastropietro to a rendezvous where she was killed, and then dismembered.

Mr. Oseghale has now been sentenced to life in prison by a panel of Italian judges.

In the following video, the possibility is mentioned that Innocent Oseghale was not the only person involved in the girl’s murder. We’ve posted a number of times in the past about the murder of Pamela Mastropietro; and in the first two posts listed below, Alessandro Meluzzi discusses the theory that Ms. Mastropietro was not just dismembered, but ritually dismembered and partially eaten by a Nigerian mafia gang, which intended to sell some of her body parts on the black market.

Nigerian Migrant Sentenced to Life for Murder of Italian Teen Pamela Mastropietro

Nigerian migrant drug dealer Innocent Oseghale has been found guilty of the murder and dismemberment of Italian teenager Pamela Mastropietro and was sentenced to life imprisonment with 18 months of isolation.

The Court of Assizes of Macerata found the Nigerian guilty of every single charge against him from voluntary murder aggravated by sexual assault, insult, to destruction and concealment of a corpse this week, Italian newspaper Il Giornale reports.

France Does Not Belong to the French!

Last weekend a mob of illegal immigrants — who styled themselves the “Black Vests” — occupied the Charles de Gaulle Airport outside Paris and staged a rally against French migration policy. One of the migrants (speaking in Arabic, which was translated into French) said:

“France does not belong to the French! All Africa has a right to be here!”

Below are excerpts from a Breitbart article (hat tip Seneca III) about the Black Vest occupation of the airport:

‘France Does Not Belong to the French!’ — Migrants Occupy Airport

Hundreds of illegal migrants occupied the Paris Charles de Gaulle airport in France, preventing people from boarding their flights and demanding to speak to Emmanuel Macron’s prime minister, Edouard Philippe.

“France does not belong to the French! Everyone has a right to be here!” yelled one of the migrants, organised by the pro-migration La Chapelle Debout group, through a loudspeaker, as they pressed for their presence in the country to be regularised.

Calling themselves “Black Vests” in a homage — of sorts — to the Yellow Vests who have been protesting Emmanuel Macron for months, the migrants also demanded Air France “stop any financial, material, logistical or political participation in deportations” in a statement published on Facebook.

[…]

Le Parisien reported that Paris Charles de Gaulle, the largest international airport in France, and second-largest in the European Union behind Britain’s London Heathrow, was targeted because of its proximity to an administrative detention centre in nearby Mesnil-Amelot (Seine-et-Marne), where illegal aliens are held prior to their expulsion from the country.

Air France, which the Black Vests denounced as the “official deporter of the French state”, did send a delegation to treat with the migrants’ representatives, and promised to “report their grievances to the management”.

The airline declined to comment on the incident to the media, however, referring reporters to the police prefecture.

[…]

Illegal migrants appear to have little fear of reprisals for such actions, with hundreds having conducted a similar protest demanding regularisation outside the Paris police quarters in January, according to Le Parisien.

They were even more brazen in 2018, storming the historic Basilica of Saint-Denis, which holds the tombs of many of France’s kings, alongside anti-borders left-wingers, forcing clergymen to cancel a Catholic mass and remaining in situ until the authorities forcibly ejected them from the premises.

National populist leader Marine Le Pen condemned the seeming involvement of left-wing politicians in the demonstration, blasting that, “By calling migrants to desecrate the Basilica of St. Denis, Necropolis of our Kings… the far-left show that, in their immigrationist madness, they are ready to trample our civilisation and desecrate a place of historical worship.”

Update on the Senegalese Bus-Burner

Ousseynou Sy is a Senegalese migrant in Italy. On Wednesday he kidnapped 51 children and later torched the bus that was carrying them when police intercepted it. Thanks to resourceful students and competent police, the captives escaped from the bus without serious injury.

In the following video Giorgia Meloni — the leader of the anti-immigration party Fratelli d’Italia (Brothers of Italy) and a member of the Italian Chamber of Deputies — talks about the imperative to strip Mr. Sy of his Italian citizenship.

Many thanks to FouseSquawk for translating this article about Ousseynou Sy from Il Giornale:

The Senegalese who hijacked a bus with 51 small children on board is not apologizing for what occurred. He forcefully affirmed his gesture, and in fact, in front of the magistrates, explained the motives for the attack on the bus. “Repent? No repentance. It was something that I had to do and would do again. One hundred times. Why did I do it? To send a signal to Africa. The Africans must stay in Africa.”

Words that weigh and in fact underline how determined the man was in his death plan. As Corriere della Sera reports, the words of Sy are the confirmation of the strategic matrix of the driver’s gesture. He doesn’t even fear justice and the long legal process that he will have to face. “That’s nothing, I took it into account. I wanted a consequential gesture. The world had to talk about me,” he confided to his lawyer. Which instead seems to point to a mental infirmity. “In my judgment, he showed serious signs of imbalance, and the manner in which the investigating judge had to carry out the interrogation was aimed out verifying this aspect,” said the attorney, Davide Lacchini. “To him, he was not interested in the national reaction, but the impact on an international level that his action could have. He wanted to go to Linate [Milan’s airport] alone. Today, as yesterday, he constantly repeated that he didn’t want to hurt the children.”

But now, in fact, after the attack on the bus the doors of San Vittore prison have already been thrown open for him. There, other inmates have welcomed him with eggs and oranges. One throw landed against his cell. The prisoners didn’t allow him to close his eyes. He is located in the fifth [corridor], that for protected prisoners, the prisoners who cannot be housed together with the others. Within the prison code, those who attack children receive an added penalty which is experienced on a daily basis in relations with other prisoners. The rule doesn’t change for Sy, who has had to deal with this reality. He is seen in his cell with t-shirt and jeans over a checkered shirt. Slippers on his feet. As reported by Corriere, his clothes, those he wore on the bus, were partially burned. The final sign of a day of madness that has left a mark, perhaps forever, on the lives of 51 small children and their teachers.

A Franc Discussion

Luigi Di Maio is the leader of the 5-Star Movement in Italy and Deputy Prime Minister in the current Italian government (in coalition with the Lega Nord).

Mr. Di Maio caused an uproar yesterday when he accused France of engaging in neo-colonialism in Africa by manipulating a regional currency known as the CFA. His remarks to the press on the subject may be seen in this video (switch on the closed-caption setting to see the English translation).

Giorgia Meloni is the leader of the anti-immigration party Fratelli d’Italia (Brothers of Italy) and a member of the Italian Chamber of Deputies. The Brothers are not part of the current governing coalition in Italy, but they are long-time allies of the Lega Nord and take similar positions on most political issues.

In the following video Ms. Meloni makes the same accusations about French colonialism and the CFA. Many thanks to FouseSquawk for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Below are excerpts from the Wikipedia entry on the CFA:

The CFA franc (in French: franc CFA …, or colloquially franc) is the name of two currencies, the West African CFA franc, used in eight West African countries, and the Central African CFA franc, used in six Central African countries. Both currencies are guaranteed by the French treasury. Although separate, the two CFA franc currencies have awlays [sic] been at parity and are effectively interchangeable. The ISO currency codes are XAF for the Central African CFA franc and XOF for the West African CFA franc.

Both CFA francs have a fixed exchange rate to the euro: 100 CFA francs = 1 former French (nouveau) franc = 0.152449 euro; or 1 € = 6.55957 FRF = 655.957 CFA francs exactly.

So if the CFA is pegged to the euro, that means the institutions of the EU, and in particular the European Central Bank, are the effective controllers of the currency. Since all the countries involved are francophone, and the two major players in the EU are France and Germany, that makes France the de facto manager of monetary policy in fourteen African countries.

Furthermore, the “colonial” aspect of Mr. Di Maio’s assertions is reflected in the history of the CFA acronym, which has remained the same even as the ostensible meaning of its component letters has changed:

Between 1945 and 1958, CFA stood for Colonies françaises d’Afrique (“French colonies of Africa”); then for Communauté française d’Afrique (“French Community of Africa”) between 1958 (establishment of the French Fifth Republic) and the independence of these African countries at the beginning of the 1960s. Since independence, CFA is taken to mean Communauté Financière Africaine (African Financial Community), but in actual use, the term can have two meanings…

The following article from ANSA discusses the official French reaction to Mr. Di Maio’s remarks:

Italy Envoy Called to French Foreign Ministry Over Di Maio

Africa remarks ‘hostile and without cause’

(ANSA) — Rome, January 21 — Italian Ambassador to France Teresa Castaldo was summoned to the French foreign ministry Monday over remarks Deputy Premier Luigi Di Maio made over alleged French policy in Africa, diplomatic sources told ANSA.

French diplomatic sources told ANSA Monday that Di Maio’s remarks were “hostile and without cause given the partnership between France and Italy in the European Union.” They said “they must be read in a context of Italian internal politics”.

Castaldo was summoned by the cabinet chief of French European Affairs Minister Nathalie Loiseau over remarks Di Maio made at a rally Sunday, French media said.

The head of the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S), who is also labour and economy minister, said “if today people are leaving Africa is it because some European countries, with France in the lead, have never stopped colonizing tens of African States”.

Rock-Throwing Culture-Enrichers Get the Best of Police in Foggia

The following video report discusses an attack on police by migrants outside an asylum center in the southern Italian province of Foggia. Two officers were injured, but were spared even worse by the fortunate arrival of additional police squadrons. One shudders to think what might have happened if reinforcements hadn’t shown up in time…

50 Migrants Attack 2 Police

At Foggia camp

(ANSA) — Foggia, October 8 — Some 50 migrants attacked and injured two police outside a migrant camp in Foggia on Monday, police union SAP said.

SAP said the migrants punched and kicked the officers at the asylum seeker processing centre at Borgo Mezzanone after the police stopped a 26-year-old Gambian who was then arrested for trying to run them over.

SAP asked for “greater safeguards for police operating on the street, such as tasers for example”.

The officers suffered wounds that doctors said would heal in 15 and 30 days respectively.

The Predictable End Begins Again

Three opinions on the hot mess of #WaitForMe South Africa, which is anxious to go Zimbabwe one better:

The main problems facing national entities in the African continent are corruption, corruption, corruption. Without a rule of law and robust property rights, no country can flourish.

All too soon South Africa will have begging bowls in the U.N. Or rather, a list of demands that “former colonials” had better meet. But those wicked colonials will be embroiled in their own troubles, many of them brought about by their imported African populations.

Not to worry. China – already buying up mineral rights throughout the continent – is waiting in the wings to pick up the pieces. Who needs to ‘own’ countries when one can simply strip them to the last yuan?

The end of this sad tale will be blood, death, and famine. However, the present instigators will get away, their pockets bulging.
