“At the Precipice” — The Dire State We Are In

The following quotes were collected by Michael Copeland in 2013, but the collection has not previously been published.

“At the Precipice” — The Dire State We Are In

Compiled by Michael Copeland

  • “Europe… is at the precipice of obliteration.”
    — Jan Suzanne Krasner, American Thinker, 6 Apr 2013
  • In 1980, the Islamic Council of Europe laid out their strategy for the future — and the fundamental rule was never dilute your presence. That is to say, do not integrate. Rather, concentrate Muslim presence in a particular area until you are a majority in that area…
    Brussels Journal, 13 Jul 2006
  • The unthinkable barbarity of honor-killings along with rape, incest, slavery, pedophilia, and polygamy, are becoming commonplace in western democracies among Muslim populations.
    — Robert Neville, Logan’s Warning, 20 Dec 2010,
  • …I think of all the low-information voters we have; how immoral we have become; the massive welfare state; the contempt so many have for whites; and how fast we have deteriorated in the past 30 years!
    — Bluffcreek, comment on Michael Finch, FrontPage, 2 Feb 2013
  • We are divided as a people, flooded with illegal immigrants, crime is rampant, the welfare system is in full bloom, government spending is out of control…
    — bluffcreek1967, comment, FrontPage, “The End of the Republic?”, 18 Mar 2013
  • When the masses wake up and see the plot and how their leftist governments have betrayed them and how their treasonous liberal media have lied to them they will rise and Muslims will find no peace in Europe and in America.
    — Ali Sina, 19 Jan 2013
  • We should put a stop to this mass immigration of people coming from outside Europe, mainly Islamic countries, of people who cannot and will not adapt to our way of living in Western Europe.
    — Philip Claeys, Belgian MEP, www.rt.com, 28 Feb 2013
  • A new report from Oslo Norway’s Police Department on the number and nature of rapes it is experiencing is nothing short of stunning. Of the rape cases with identified perpetrators 100% are Muslim immigrants! By contrast Norway has recently welcomed 61,000 Catholic Polish workers — not a single one of whom is a rapist.
    www.sodahead.com, 7 June 2011
  • Last year 6,509 rapes were reported to the police in Sweden — the corresponding figure in Denmark was 392.
    — Ingrid Carlqvist, Jihad Watch, 6 Feb 2012
  • CJ   “Talking about England… well, they’ve already submitted”
    Mark   “They’re gone.”
    CJ   “Forget about it. They already have submitted. It’s all over. You can halt all the immigration you want to those countries [England and France] but it won’t matter, because they have a sufficient percentage of their population now, already, and with the next generations coming behind them they got all the numbers they need. They don’t have to import any more.”
     

    — Tom Trento radio, 6 Feb 2013, www.LogansWarning.com at 1:44:12

  • England is lost.
    — BS77, FrontPage, “Muslim who raped 13 Year Old UK Girl”, 27 Jan 2013
  • First, I can say without hesitation that I hope never to return to Britain. I actually don’t see any point. Jews are targeted by massive anti-Semitism of both the social and physical varieties. Why would anyone Jewish want to live there?… there is no future for Jews in England.
    www.CarolineGlick.com, 21 Jan 2013
  • Asian boys coming up to me and saying “I’m gonna rape ya. And if you don’t go with me I’m gonna punch ya in the face with a knuckle-duster, and if ya don’t give me a blow-job.”… It’s happening to lots of girls… Every day… Yes … I feel intimidated by ’em, and… scared.
    — White English schoolgirl, 14, www.liveleak.com, 26 Jan 2011
  • Typically, the victims are white and non-Muslim, as is sadly known to the inhabitants of Blackburn, Burnley, Bradford, Blackpool, Keighley, Rochdale, Rotherham and Derby and other locations.
    www.durotrigan.blogspot.co.uk 5 May 2012
  • …the European project… was a conspiracy of the European elites against their own peoples: it is the literal truth.
    —Janet Daley, Telegraph, 27 Jan 2013
  • British kids are punished if they refuse to go on the school trip to the mosque.
    — emmi 29 Jan 2013, Logan’s Warning, 10 July 2011
  • “In Islam doesn’t it say you have to respect the law of the land you are living in?”
    “No, it doesn’t.”

    — Stacey Dooley and Muslim demonstrator on Channel 4 documentary on Luton
  • “The people of France will live under the Islamic movement, even if you don’t like it. We will collect the jizya poll tax.”
    — Muslim with loudspeaker, London, Jihad Watch 20 Jan 2013
  • Now there is no trace of any kind of community — that word so cherished by the Left. Instead [Acton] has been transformed into a giant transit camp and is home to no one.
    — Jane Kelly, Telegraph, 29 Jan 2013, Jihad Watch, 3 Feb

Dystopian COVID Tyranny in Quebec

A couple of days ago I posted a video from Montreal translated by Oz-Rita about a man who was handled roughly by police for violating COVID-19 restrictions. Rita speaks Parisian French, so she was unable to make out much of the dialect in that clip.

Since then the same clip has been retranslated by a Quebecer who could understand everything that was said. The dialect being spoken is called Joual, which (according to Wikipedia) is an accepted name for the linguistic features of basilectal Quebec French associated with the French-speaking working class in Montreal. Joual is stigmatized by some people and celebrated by others.

Here’s another video from the dystopian COVID nightmare in Quebec. This one shows the ingenious strategies employed by Quebecers in their attempts to avoid the curfew restrictions.

Go Home Now. Because COVID.

Quebec has one of the strictest lockdowns in the world, possibly as bad as the one in the UK. It includes a curfew from 8pm to 5am.

The context of the following video from Montreal is not entirely clear. The action takes place at night, but I don’t know whether it was after 8pm or not. As far as I can tell, a man was out with his son to walk the dog, and was stopped by police. The officers gave him some police-type grief, knocked the phone out of his hand, and ordered him to go home or be arrested. Evidently he was violating either the curfew or some other provision of the COVID-19 lockdown regulations.

Should Auld Acquaintance Be Forgot?

Gatineau is a city in Quebec just across the Ottawa River from Ottawa. The following video was recorded at a house in Gatineau on New Year’s Eve. Ten police officers raided the residence because six people had illegally gathered there for a New Year’s Eve party.

The audio is a mixture of English and French. The French portion has been translated. Many thanks to Sassy for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

The Unauthorized Use of the Trademark For OSCE Inc.

Long-time readers will remember that for more than a decade Gates of Vienna has reported extensively on the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE). Beginning in 2009, Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff and Henrik Clausen worked tirelessly to expose the growing Islamization of the organization. They attended OSCE “Human Dimension” conferences in Warsaw and Vienna to make interventions (short presentations) and hold side events. In later years they were joined by other Counterjihad stalwarts, including Alain Wagner, Dave Petteys, Maj. Stephen Coughlin, Clare Lopez, Katie Hopkins, and others.

Last Friday I received the following letter as a PDF attached to an email from the OSCE (sent by Daniel Stirrat, a Legal Assistant in the Office of Legal Affairs). Interestingly, although it arrived here in the afternoon of December 11, well before midnight CET, it is dated December 12:

Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe

Office of Legal Affairs                Vienna, 12 December 2020

To whom it may concern,

It has come to the attention of the Secretariat of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) that there has been unauthorized use of OSCE’s trademark, including the OSCE emblem and name, on your website. For ease of reference, please see the following examples:

Please note that the OSCE’s name in English, French, German, Italian, Russian and Spanish, its abbreviation in all those languages and its emblem are the exclusive property of the OSCE, protected under Article 6ter of the 1883 Paris Convention for the Protection of Industrial Property (as amended), and were duly registered with the World Intellectual Property Organization on 31 August 2001. As such, they may not be copied, reproduced, displayed, or used without the express prior written permission of the OSCE.

The OSCE has not consented to the use of its trademark on your website. Any engagement on your side in OSCE activities and/or events does not constitute such consent. In light thereof, you are requested to remove the OSCE trademark from your website immediately and refrain from using it in the future without obtaining the prior express written consent of the OSCE.

Thank you in advance for your co-operation.

Yours sincerely,

I had not been aware that the OSCE was an industry, and that it was therefore covered by the 1883 Paris Convention for the Protection of Industrial Property. To rectify my error, I immediately went through all the OSCE posts and replaced all instances of the OSCE™ logo with the one shown at the top of this post. Then I wrote the following reply to the OSCE:

Do They Really Mean It?

Last night’s post about French President Emmanuel “Toy Boy” Macron started a conversation in the comments about whether or not Mr. Macron sincerely wants to stop (or slow) the encroachment of Islam in France. The translated article concerned the French President’s requirement that the French Council of Muslim Worship come up with a plan for regulating the training of imams in France and removing foreign influences from the process.

The consensus seems to be that Mr. Macron is trying to poach some support from Marine Le Pen of National Rally, who would probably win the next presidential election if it were held today. With every incident of deadly violence that escapes the banlieues and impacts the lives of ordinary native French people, the more voters turn to Ms. Le Pen.

Emmanuel Macron may have a vestigial sense of French identity and culture, but he is clearly an opportunist. In his lofty position as head of state, he can hardly be unaware of the dire peril that Islamization poses to the French state. In my opinion — which is not based on statistics, since the French government has for many years prohibited the collecting of statistics on ethnicity and religion in France — the country has already passed the point of no return. France will become an Islamic republic within a generation at most.

If Mr. Macron and his handlers are aware of these facts — and one must assume they are — then they are simply maneuvering to give themselves the best possible positions of advantage during the rapidly dwindling time in which non-Muslims retain control of the French government. And, as someone pointed out in the comments, the president may well be keeping an eye on the military, which has its own agenda concerning Islamic violence.

I’ve been watching the careers of Emmanuel Macron, Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, and British Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson since long before they achieved daily prominence in the news headlines. Despite their widely differing personalities and styles, they seemed to be cut from the same political cloth: ambitious, unprincipled, unscrupulous men who would do whatever it took to achieve and maintain their positions of power.

Baby Doc: “These Murderers Don’t Represent Any Religion, or Any Muslims”

The following video shows excerpts from remarks made by Canadian Prime Minister Justin “Baby Doc” Trudeau about the recent Islamic terror attacks in France. I’m not sure how many beheadings had happened before Mr. Trudeau spoke, but I think he made his comments before the Orthodox priest was shot in the stomach in Lyon.

Newborns Must Be COVID-Tested!

This story from Quebec is quite disturbing, as is so much of the Coronanews of late. Governments throughout the West have arrogated unto themselves totalitarian powers, tossing aside constitutions and basic law. Fundamental human rights are abrogated at the whim of elected officials who have declared a nebulous state of emergency based on “science”.

In the following video the distraught mother of a newborn baby describes the way hospital authorities demanded that she allow her child — despite its being confined to a therapeutic machine similar to an incubator — to be tested for the Wuhan Coronavirus, and refused the mother’s plea that they test her instead. In the absence of such a test, both mother and infant were confined in a quarantine area alongside those who had tested positive for COVID-19.

The Psychology of the Muzzle Mandate

This post is dedicated to the Corona Hijab, a.k.a. the Mojo Mask.

First of all, take note of the poster for the “No More Masks” initiative, which will launch next week. I don’t know where it originated — not even on which side of the Atlantic — but it’s been making the rounds. It sounds like a good idea to me. I hope it gains momentum; we really need it.

The second mask-related item is this video by Paul Weston. He refers to it as a “muzzle”:

The third item is another video, an excerpt from a press conference held by Dr. Jacques Girard, who is the interim head of the regional public health authority in Quebec City. In this clip Dr. Girard explains matter-of-factly that people who refuse to “cooperate” with public health investigators concerning the coronavirus may be isolated in a prison against their will for fourteen days. It’s not clear whether these unfortunate detainees must have tested positive for COVID-19, or whether they simply must have come into contact with someone who tested positive for the virus.

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

The final video is from Germany. It features a woman, the mother of a schoolchild, who describes the manner in which teachers are coercively manipulating their students into wearing masks, even though there is no official government mask mandate. The teachers have, in effect, appointed themselves mask police.

Killing Free Speech, Yet Again

Regular readers will remember Michael Hansen, the independent Danish-American filmmaker who produced the documentaries Killing Europe, Killing Canada, and Killing Free Speech, among others.

Amazon has now removed the first part of Killing Free Speech from its listings. Which is ironic, given that the film is a documentary about the threats to freedom of expression posed by Antifa and its allies in the media and the Democrat party.

A second part of the documentary, focused on the power of Big Tech, will be released shortly.

This is the second time that the documentary’s creator has been censored by Amazon. As Breitbart News reported last year, Hansen’s previous documentary, about mass migration and Islam in Europe, was also censored by the Big Tech platform.

Breitbart has a report on Amazon’s action against Killing Free Speech.

Panic in the World

I might as well out myself: I’m a COVID-19 skeptic, a.k.a. a Coronaskeptic.

I have to be careful when I talk about the ChiCom flu with my friends and acquaintances. The vast majority of them, both liberals and conservatives, have succumbed to the general hysteria that has been propagated by the television and greatly amplified by social media. Conservatives are slightly less likely than liberals to have joined the mad rush of panic, but most of them have been infected by it to at least some degree.

I don’t think Corona 2019-nCoV, a.k.a. COVID-19, a.k.a. the Chinese Crud, is “the most deadly epidemic in human history”, or whatever hyperbolic designation that is currently being peddled by the media. Rather, it is a pandemic of mass hysteria.

That doesn’t mean that I think that the Wuhan Coronavirus doesn’t exist, or that it isn’t killing people. I’ve simply come to the conclusion that it is no more dangerous than the seasonal flu, and possibly less so.

If I posted the above on social media, it would immediately be taken down, and my account with Facebook/Twitter/Instagram/YouTube would most likely be closed. The major social sites have joined hands with the legacy media and governmental agencies to suppress any opinions that contradict the coronavirus narrative.

I’ve waited this long to post about it because I’ve been patiently collecting data on the disease since long before the hysteria began. The first thing I can tell you is that ALL the models that predicted the trajectory of the pandemic are useless. None of them seems to have remotely reflected the reality of the spread of the disease. As a result I won’t be referring to any of them; there’s no point.

Before I outline my general conclusions about what’s happening, I’ll go over some of the data points here.

The single most valuable resource I’ve encountered thus far is a Swiss site called Swiss Propaganda Research. Yes, they are avowed Coronaskeptics, but they have compiled their data carefully and thoroughly, and they source everything they assert. My favorite quote from them is this one:

Danish researcher Peter Gøtzsche, founder of the renowned Cochrane Medical Collaboration, writes that Corona is “an epidemic of mass panic” and “logic was one of the first victims.”

I recommend their page as a useful source for links to detailed, sober scientific data on the spread and virulence of COVID-19. It is updated frequently.

Peter Robinson’s interview with Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, a professor of medicine at Stanford University, is lucid and informative (hat tip Power Line):

Scott Jensen is a physician and — horrors! — Republican state senator in Minnesota. In the following video he reveals to an astonished interviewer that the state government had given doctors instructions on how to tweak death certificates to overstate the incidence of COVID-19 as the cause of death (thanks to Vlad for uploading this video):

For some interesting analysis of the WuFlu data, see Vlad’s two interviews with former CIA station chief Brad Johnson.

Video #1:

Video #2:

We are far enough into the pandemic now to have ample data on its lethality. At this point it seems to roughly comparable with the seasonal flu — maybe slightly worse, maybe not quite as bad.

The data from Germany have proved particularly useful. According to this article from Reason:

Quebec Copes With the ChiCom Flu

For the last few weeks, as I drive around adjacent areas of the Virginia Piedmont, I’ve been keeping an eye out for state police checkpoints set up to monitor compliance with the ChiCom flu travel restrictions. I haven’t seen any so far, and I don’t really expect any this far out in the boonies. Maybe there will be some eventually in the larger cities, but the largest city I regularly venture into is Charlottesville.

All the checkpoints I’ve read about are between states. The Rhode Island blockade of New Yorkers has been getting the most press coverage, and there were also reports that Florida state police have been stopping New York cars at the Georgia state line. If those New York refugees are smart, they’ll stop off in Augusta or somewhere and rent a car so they can slip into Florida with a set of Georgia plates.

Meanwhile in Canada, the province of Quebec has the most stringent controls I’ve heard of to date. Not only are the authorities stopping all traffic crossing the bridges from Ontario, but they’ve also set up internal checkpoints to keep people from traveling from one region to another.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for recording and uploading this video:
