Ha! Nazi, Schmazi!

Rasmus Paludan is a Danish lawyer and anti-Islam activist who is almost certain to become a member of parliament after next month’s general election.

In the following excerpt from a TV panel discussion, a retired politician named Mimi Jakobsen — who was Minister of Culture for the Centre Democrats back in the 1980s — likens Mr. Paludan to a Nazi. In the ensuing argument, he flings the same insult back at her. Before the program is over, she hints that she’s planning on suing him for his impertinence.

Trump: Viktor Orbán Has Done the Right Thing on Immigration

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán met with President Donald Trump in the White House on Monday. The president held a brief photo op and press conference during Mr. Orbán’s visit, at which the prime minister was able to say a few words. After that the reporters predictably peppered the president with questions about the issues du jour — notably the “trade war” with China.

However, someone has kindly created an excerpt from that presser focusing on Viktor Orbán’s remarks and President Trump’s response. Note the assumption by the “journalists” that Hungary is not a democratic country, and requires “reform”:

A policeman in Texas got into an altercation with a woman, and then shot her dead after she managed to acquire his taser. Just before the officer fired, the woman shouted, “I’m pregnant!” Later forensic tests on her body showed that she was not in fact pregnant. The officer has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation.

In other news, Tommy Robinson will face yet another contempt trial in July for his livestreaming last year.

Auschwitz and the SPD

As an appropriate follow-up to tonight’s panel discussion from Israel, Henryk Broder writes about the shameless exploitation of Auschwitz by German Social Democrats.

Auschwitz and the SPD

by Henryk M. Broder
May 9, 2019

The fantasy land of German social democracy is located in southern Poland, about 70 kilometers west of Cracow and about 40 kilometers southeast of Katowice. The geographic coordinates are: latitude 50°02′03″ N and longitude 19°12′37″E, 232 meters above sea level. The place is called Auschwitz, alternatively Oswiecim, and was designated by UNESCO as a World Cultural Heritage Site.

For over a million people, Auschwitz was a final stop and a mass grave. For Heiko Maas,[1] it was a factor that decided his choice of profession. He had, says the minister, “entered politics because of Auschwitz.” Actually, he entered politics because his second state law examination was so bad that he had no chance of being appointed as a state’s attorney or a judge — not even in Saarland. So he became a politician. Because of Auschwitz. Give me a break!

Sigmar Gabriel[2] did not enter politics because of Auschwitz, but because of his father, who was a Nazi, as Gabriel admitted unasked. It is seen as the metaphorical equivalent. As his father is for one of them, Auschwitz is for the other. And Gabriel, too, refers often to that German symbol of longing. At a fundraiser of the German National Foundation for the European elections, he said it “was exciting” to participate as the continent was being shaped. And that it was “a ray of hope that, in a time full of conflict, we have managed to come from Auschwitz to Maastricht in less than a generation. I find it a genuine miracle that we have come from hostility and genocide in less than a human lifespan, to become first partners and then friends. That is the real miracle of the European Union’s guiding light in an otherwise grim world.”

Yes, he really said that — the big baby of the SPD — and with a facial expression as if he had just discovered that there had been a short circuit in his playroom, where he had spent so many happy hours. Similarly, for Maas and some bards of the SPD, Auschwitz is not the last stop, but the light at the end of the tunnel, a start, the beginning of a better world. The people who died in this place did not die in vain. The gods heard their cries for help and made possible a direct connection from Auschwitz to Maastricht. And now, according to the subtext, if we don’t watch out, we will be going back to Auschwitz.

Gabriel is nuts, to say the least. What he is doing is covered by paragraph 168 of the criminal code[3] and is “punishable by up to three years’ imprisonment or a financial fine.” Or a long weekend in Greifswald with the youngsters of Feine Sahne Fischfilet [German punk band] in company with Robert Menasse [Austrian writer known for themes of loneliness and alienation] and Heiko Maas.

Guy Bechor: Progressive Jews Are More Dangerous to Israel Than Iran

In the following TV panel discussion from Israel, the journalist Dr. Guy Bechor explains that American Jewish Progressives are the enemies of Israel and their fellow Jews, and should even be denied the right to return to Israel, since they are a danger to the Jewish state.

He also highlights the prominence of Progressive Jews in the “Russia collusion” conspiracy against President Donald Trump.

The Quebec Legislature Debates Bill 21

A law (Bill 21) proposed by Quebec Premier François Legault would restrict the wearing of religious symbols by public employees. Among the symbols to be prohibited is the hijab, which has predictably caused a fierce controversy about Bill 21.

The video below shows excerpts from a hearing in the Quebec legislature about Bill 21. It features retired Senator Céline Hervieux-Payette, who angered the Gutmenschen by linking the Islamic veil with female genital mutilation, forced marriage, and honor killing.

Just a Symptom of Our Growing Social Problems

Tucker Carlson will have an ongoing feature this week, focusing on homelessness. It would appear he’s going to concentrate on the west coast, but it’s a problem everywhere.

Charlottesville, Virginia has a problem with homelessness and drug addiction, but they won’t advertise the fact. I used to work in a drop-in center a few blocks (and a whole world) away from that mess the city cooked up and then spewed out at the unsuspecting. I mean the theater of racial “unrest”, our modern version of the Leftist Theater of the Absurd.

As Carlson mentions, this whole thing started in the 60s with Kennedy’s ill-advised closing of mental hospitals and turning out its denizens into their communities to be preyed upon by the criminal class.

The latest polls on the European parliamentary elections suggest that the Lega, the party of Interior Minister Matteo Salvini, will gain 30% of the vote in Italy, making it the largest single party represented in the EP. Meanwhile, the Tories have dropped to fifth place in polling for the British Isles.

In other news, Tanzanian Archbishop Renatus Nkwande said that homosexuality and abortion are forms of Western colonialism.

Youths Gone Wild, Act III

The third video about the youthful mischief of European culture-enrichers reports on the actions of residents at an asylum center in the German city of Regensburg. It seems that a young woman who was residing at the center somehow turned up dead. When police came to investigate the incident, the asylum-seekers threw rocks at them.

Youths Gone Wild, Act II

This story reminds me of a popular British song from the ’60s, “Over the Wall We Go”.

It concerns a hundred or so culture-enrichers who tried to climb over the barbed wire fence into the Spanish enclave of Melilla in North Africa. But only half of them made it over, and only four border guards were wounded in the process — just bruises! — so it’s not so bad.

Youths Gone Wild, Act I

Tonight we will feature incidents involving “youths” in Europe. The first video concerns four culture-enrichers who attacked 21 pedestrians “indiscriminately” in the Bavarian city of Amberg.

“The booze made me do it, yer honor,” seems to be the youths’ basic defense when they appear in court.
