The Railroading of Tommy Robinson

The following video is a report on Tommy Robinson by Lars Andersen, a Danish vlogger and former police officer. Mr. Andersen discusses Tommy’s speech at the Free Press Society and his interview on Danish TV, both of which were published here earlier this week.

The subtitled video of the Deadline interview with Peter Münster referred to by Mr. Andersen was posted here last September.

This video is an excellent fisking of the Danish MSM. Many thanks to Tania Groth for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Brexit: The Cities, the Shires and the Open Sea

At the end of this month Brexit will become a reality. Or will it somehow yet again be postponed? Our English correspondent Seneca III has some thoughts on the matter.

Brexit: The Cities, the Shires and the Open Sea

by Seneca III

In eight days and eight nights as of this writing I will greet the rising sun on the first day of February 2020 with much the same status as I unknowingly did seventy-eight years ago as I entered into this life as a free-born child of England, but I incline to say “much the same status as”, because my freedom, as tentative now as it was then, will not be complete. Yes, our D-Day does hover on a near horizon — in this case just over a week away — but its success or failure is as unpredictable now as it was in June 1944.

Thanks to over four decades of scheming, surrender-treaty-signing politicians we will at best still face almost a year subject to binding EU controls, restrictions and judgements and to the continued payment of huge membership fees to an organisation of which we will no longer be a member and from which we will receive no benefit (if we ever did), plus, at the end of it all, paying thirty-nine billion pounds of ransom money to finally escape its clutches.*

The terms and conditions of this robbery at legal gunpoint are enabled and enforced by the chains those treaties acceded us to. That the ends of those chains are firmly in the hands of an implacable enemy construct across the Channel to which our groveling governing classes pay obeisance is humiliating and dangerously detrimental to our financial and sovereign future.

And, just to ice the cake of our subservience, the rape and plundering of our fishing grounds by EU Seine Net, Electrification and Beam-Dragging Mega-Trawlers will continue at an accelerating pace to the point where, with their food chains destroyed from the bottom up, those waters will have become near sterile wildernesses by the time we get them back eleven months later.

Yet, on that day of days when we at least partially pull the plug, I will still stand proud to be British, to be one miniscule part of a Union and a people who, despite several decades of subtle deceits and nigh on four years of high treason in the corrupted Mother of Parliaments have, for the umpteenth time since the Norman invasion and the third time in the last hundred years, found the will and the courage to resist and repel yet another attempt at foreign hegemony over the once green and pleasant land that is this small wind-swept archipelago in the North Atlantic. And possibly even saved Europe from itself in the process.

Still, I am foremost minded of the fact that at that at 2300 hours on the 31st we will still have that long, uncertain year’s slog ahead of us, a hopefully beneficial progress we might at least be able to sustain for a short span, but only for a short span because the singular triumph of Brexit which succeeded against all odds over this latest attempt to subordinate us to the beat of different drummers is not the linear and forward looking process it would appear to be. It is in actuality a small length of arc on the circumference of the closed circular course of our political affairs where a precession that, if not recognised or accepted with insouciance and thus immediately rejected, always tends to produce another attempt at dominance by inimical entities either from either within or without. Or both.

Tommy Robinson in Copenhagen

As you all know by now, last week Tommy Robinson received the prestigious Sappho Award from the Danish Free Press Society in Copenhagen.

The full speech given by Tommy after receiving the award is embedded below. But first, there’s an interview with Tommy from the Danish MSM — an antagonistic one, of course; how could it be otherwise?

Many thanks to Tania Groth for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling (the transcript at the bottom of this post only includes the Danish portion at the beginning, and not the English-language exchanges in the interview):

Below is Tommy’s entire speech, as posted on the YouTube channel for the Free Press Society. Now that they’ve uploaded more than an hour of Tommy Robinson, how long do you think it will take before their channel is yanked?

By the way — I feel compelled to point out that in his speech Tommy made extensive use of Tania’s translation of a Danish TV clip, which was subtitled by Vlad and posted here last September. It’s good to have been of service to the cause:

The Temporal Princes

In the early days of this blog, back when I was commuting to work in Richmond and was only home on weekends, Saturday was often designated Poetry Day (and when it wasn’t, it was Ranting Day, which was also fun).

Today’s poem is actually an excerpt from a much longer work by C. Day Lewis, “The Magnetic Mountain”. I’ve never seen any of the rest of the poem, so these four stanzas must be the best part. The excerpt was included in an anthology of modern verse that I was assigned to study for O-level English in the late 1960s. I memorized it back then (we had to memorize lengthy chunks of verse to quote in the exam), but I don’t own a copy of it, so I hadn’t thought of it in decades.

As I mentioned last weekend, I’ve been sorting through a big old trunk of odds and ends. Some of the memorabilia in it are more than fifty years old, and I hadn’t laid eyes on any of the stuff in more than forty years. As a result, I’ve been running into some (mostly pleasant) surprises.

This past week I encountered the first two stanzas of the poem mentioned above in that trunk. I had scribbled them from memory on the cover of a William and Mary notebook — in class, when I was bored — in about 1971. When I saw them, they seemed VERY familiar, and gradually all four stanzas came back to me. But I couldn’t remember who the poet was, so I googled a piece of the text, and found it on someone’s blog (with minor textual errors, and possibly missing some commas).

This is a superb poem. I’m glad I recovered it after all these years. It’s somewhat gloomy, but I’ve just returned from a funeral, so gloom is appropriate:

Deception by Muslims: Learning Curve Needed

In his latest essay Michael Copeland discusses what has been pointed out here repeatedly in the past: Islamic scriptures and teaching require believers to engage in sacred lying whenever it serves the cause of Islam.

Deception by Muslims: Learning Curve Needed

by Michael Copeland

“Act like you are his friend. Then kill him.”

So urged Sheikh Mubarak Gilani to his Muslim listeners concerning non-Muslims, kafirs. He was advocating two of Islam’s teachings: deception of kafirs and killing of kafirs.

Islamic deception

Islamic deception has an Arabic name — taqiyya. It is a well-developed doctrine. In short it authorises Muslims to deceive the kafir in the cause of Islam. One of Islam’s most important theologians, Al Ghazali (1059-1111), set out the position a long time ago:

“Understand that lying is not wrong in itself. If a lie is the only way to achieve a good result [for Islam], it is permitted.”

“Permissible Lying” is how taqiyya is featured in the Manual of Islamic Law, Reliance of the Traveller (r4). In the Muslim Brotherhood’s secret “Strategic Plan”, the “Explanatory Memorandum”, it is included as “Using deception to mask intended goals”. It is part of their strategy for “destroying the Western civilisation from within”. This explosively important document was captured through alert police work.

An observant traffic officer in Maryland in 2004 saw a car being driven across the Chesapeake Bridge with a woman in a hijab taking a video of its structural members. He pulled it over. The driver was a Hamas activist. The driver and the passenger were arrested and their Virginia home searched. In a secret sub-basement was a stash of Arabic documents, including the Explanatory Memorandum. Subsequently this became critical evidence in the largest terrorist-funding case in American history, the Holy Land Foundation trial.

Islam’s doctrine of killing non-Muslims has been its blood-soaked track record for the last nearly 1,400 years. It cannot be missed. Islam’s history is one of repeated attack, killing, slave-taking, piracy, extortion, subjugation, humiliation and forced conversion of non-Muslim peoples, and the annihilation of their cultures. Churches, temples, and synagogues have been destroyed and triumphal mosques built in their stead. Great swathes of the Near East and North Africa that were previously Christian, even Spain and part of France, have been forced to be Islamic, with great cruelty and barbarism. Formerly Buddhist Afghanistan, Zoroastrian Persia, and Hindu India have all experienced the same. The process is in full swing in Nigeria, Myanmar, East Timor, the Philippines, Sudan, and elsewhere. The tainted BBC euphemise these conflicts as “separatist insurgencies”, but they are all instances of Islamic jihad.

Jack Merritt and Saskia Jones were deceived by Muslim jihadi Usman Khan. Khan had been imprisoned for planning terrorist mass murders. In prison he had claimed that that he wanted be rehabilitated. It was taqiyya. He joined a “Learning Together” programme in which the two were involved.

Killing kafirs

Unfortunately the “Learning Together” programme had not started on its own Learning Curve about Islam. The management had not informed either themselves or their personnel of basic Islamic doctrines. Had they done so, they would have been alerted not only to Islam’s Permissible Lying, but also, critically, to Islam’s standing instruction to kill kafirs.

“We Are At War”

Michael Copeland’s latest essay reminds me of two lines in “There is a War”, a song by Leonard Cohen: “There is a war between the ones who say there is a war / and the ones who say there isn’t.”

“We Are At War”

by Michael Copeland

“We are at war and I am a soldier,” said Mohammed Sidique Khan, one of the London 7/7 murderers. Lee Rigby’s killer told the court, “I am a soldier… This is a war… I’m a Soldier of Allah”.

Observers who are alert to Islam’s objectives have little difficulty in accepting this. Public broadcasters and politicians, by and large, though, do not accept it. They are uninformed: as a result they are incredulous. Stephen Sackur of BBC Newsnight scowled with disbelief when Anjem Choudary informed him that kafirs are not innocent — basic Islamic doctrine — and that Britain has always been the Realm of War. The BBC knows better, apparently. Recently in France the very well-informed Eric Zemmour insisted to his interviewer:

“Civil war! —Yes. We are in a civil war. — We are… excuse me!”

His interviewer did not appear to be convinced: perhaps he thinks he knows better. The media, and, more seriously, Western governments, have yet to receive the memo.

The blogger ECAW writes, “In 2005 four British born Muslims blew themselves up on the London transport system, killing 52 people, citing religious and political motivations. I was angry about it but was elsewhere, and otherwise engaged, and I went back to sleep.”

Sleep

ECAW probably speaks for many, many more. Why did we go back to sleep? Was it anything to do with repeated assurances from our leaders that these four had misunderstood their Peaceful Religion, that they had warped, twisted, perverted it and so on — you know the rest? ECAW is no longer asleep. His acronym explains: “Everything Changed After Woolwich”.

But… but… but we cannot be at war. War means Arnold Schwarzenegger… and helicopters… and commandos… and tanks. Let’s face it: most of our mental images are owed to Hollywood, and we hardly even realise it. No. War is not all heroic and exciting. It does not need to be continuous: it can be gradual. Wars in the past dragged on for decades — the Thirty Years’ War, the Hundred Years’ War, the Napoleonic Wars. Islam itself is, by its own doctrines, in “a permanent war institution” against the West, which is “Dar al Harb”, the Realm of War. “Britain has always been Dar al Harb”, Anjem Choudary assured BBC Newsnight.

The US has suffered many jihad attacks: 9/11, Fort Hood, Little Rock, Chattanooga, San Bernardino, Boston Marathon, Orlando night club, van ramming in New York, subway bomber, and so on. Britain has undergone a large number of attacks: Lockerbie, London 7/7, London 21/7, the foiled airline liquid bomb attack, the fertilizer bomb plot, Glasgow airport, the London night club failed car bomb, the beheading of Lee Rigby, the beheading of Palmira Silva, the murders of young Kriss Donald, Charlene Downes and others, the anti-EDL bomb plot, the Manchester concert bomb. Add the ongoing taking of thousands of vulnerable underage girls as sex-slaves, including one murdered at home with her family at night by arson. Add all the assaults on young men, and the carving out of Muslim-only ghettoes by the aggressive thuggery of White Drive-Out. The picture emerges of widespread and sustained hostile actions, complete with multiple victims. How many attacks are needed to qualify as a war? Certainly a state of hostility exists, with casualties.

The Old Communist League

For the past few weeks I’ve been sorting through and curating the contents of a huge ancient trunk that came down here from my mother’s house more than fifteen years ago, after she died and her house was put up for sale. The material in the trunk dates from 1965 to 1973, and includes memorabilia and school papers from my time in England. I hadn’t laid eyes on anything in the trunk since it was put in there in 1973, so this has been a real trip down memory lane.

Tucked inside one of the school notebooks was a flyer containing the “Manifesto for Secondary Schools” from the Young Communist League. I took my O-levels and A-levels at Harrogate High School in the West Riding of Yorkshire in the late ’60s, and was probably handed the flyer by some politically zealous schoolmate in about 1969, when I was in the sixth form. I was largely apolitical in those days, so I must have stuck the thing in a notebook and promptly forgot about it. The trunk in which it rested for five decades was all but airtight, so the flyer is in pristine condition.

Readers will find it interesting to look at the demands made by the YCL and assess to what extent they have been met in the fifty-one years since the manifesto was printed. The people who wrote it must have been a few years older than I was at the time, which would put them in their early seventies now. Is that Jeremy Corbyn’s cohort? Are they the men and women who now preside over the Labour Party?

A side-note: In their tract the revolutionaries made reference to “racialism” in British society. Back then I was bilingual — fluent in both British and American — and kept in my mind an extensive lexicon of differences between the two languages, so that I could speak and write properly in the context of my schoolwork. I considered “racialism” to be the British version of what Americans called “racism”. Evidently the Brits have since adopted the Americanism, because these days you almost always read “racism”.

[There has been extensive borrowing in both directions since the Digital Age dawned. For example, I’ve actually seen British writers refer to the “sidewalk” instead of the “pavement”. Horrors! But it works both ways — Americans say “early on” nowadays, but I had never heard the idiom before I moved to England, and considered it a Briticism while I lived there.]

Below is the full text of the manifesto from the Young Communist League, ca. 1969. All italics are in the original.

Young Communist

MANIFESTO FOR SECONDARY SCHOOLS

A spectre is haunting the citadels of power — the spectre of revolutionary youth.

Our generation is determined not to make the mistakes of the present holders of power. We are determined to end hunger, racialism, social injustice and war. And our struggle for a better world does not stop at the school gate. There is much to be done in our schools.

Soon 18-year-olds may be considered adults in the eyes of the law. Therefore, from the middle of the secondary school, we demand to be considered as young people rapidly approaching adulthood. Senior students should have full democratic rights, including participation in the government of the school.

We make these demands, not only in defence of our own rights, but also in order that the secondary schools — in which all young people spend at leas four years — shall fully carry out their function as the most important institutions for the education of the members of our society.

These are our demands, and we are prepared to take direct action to win them:

Five Years After Charlie Hebdo: The West is on its Knees

Tuesday was the fifth anniversary of the massacre at the offices of Charlie Hebdo in Paris, in which Islamic terrorists murdered twelve people in the name of Allah. In the years since the attack, the West has become even more craven, and is even less willing to engage in frank discussion about the nature of Islam or the Islamization of Europe.

As usual, Mark Steyn has the most cogent remarks on the topic:

Instead of sharing the risk, the bigfoot media behaved exactly as they had a decade earlier. At my old London home The Daily Telegraph some gutless pansies decided that their reporting on the story could only be accompanied by carefully blurred images of the late cartoonists’ work in order to avoid giving offense — turning Mohammed into a perpetually pixelated prophet, as if (to reprise a gag I did in 2005) poor ol’ Mo’s entered the witness protection program.

Which is in fact the precise opposite of what’s going on: cowardly media pixelate Mohammed as a way of fast-tracking themselves into the witness protection program, or so they hope. On TV, one of the few surviving Charlie Hebdo staffers attempted to hold one of the offending covers on screen, only to have the camera lurch away. Around the world, the dead cartoonists’ professional colleagues, almost to a man, agreed that the preferred response was some or other limpid, evasive, self-flattering variant of “the pen is mightier than the sword”.

But that line doesn’t work if your pen’s filled with White-Out…

[…]

To be honest, it makes me vomit to see people holding these Princess Dianafied candlelit vigils, and using the hashtag #JeSuisCharlie — I am Charlie — and in effect appropriating these guys’ sacrifice for this bogus solidarity. It makes me sick to see all these ‘the pen is mightier than the sword’ cartoons that have appeared in newspapers all over the United States, Canada, Britain, Germany, France, Australia, everywhere, from other cartoonists, again expressing solidarity with these very brave men — but not doing what they did…

I’ve been on enough events in Europe with less famous cartoonists than these who live under death threats, live under armed guard, have had their family restaurant firebombed — it’s happened to a Norwegian comedienne I know — have come home and found their home burned, as a Swedish artist I know happened to. And all these people doing the phony hashtag solidarity, screw your phony hashtag solidarity. Let’s have some real solidarity — or if not, at least have the good taste to stay the hell out of it.

That would have been asking too much. In the days that followed almost all those who claimed to be expressing solidarity with Charb were, in fact, signaling very clearly that they preferred to live on their knees.

[…]

That’s why free speech matters. Without free speech, there are only the official lies — about who’s killing Jews in Copenhagen, who’s sexually assaulting women in Cologne — and there is nothing to say in response to either except to crank up the old joanna for one more chorus of “Imagine”.

What happened on January 7th 2015 was terrible. But our response to it made it more terrible, and emboldened civilization’s enemies. With respect to the late Charb, the choice is not between dying standing up or living on our knees — for those who choose to live on their knees will die there, too, cringing and craven…

There has been a lot of talk on French TV about the fifth anniversary of the Charlie Hebdo slaughter. Below are two video samples. Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translations, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Video #1: Marika Bret, the former Social Relations Director for Charlie Hebdo, discusses the increase in the Islamization in the five years since the attack.

Video #2: Remarks by Jean Messiha. According to Wikipedia, as glossed by MissPiggy:

Jean Messiha is an Egyptian-born French economist, high-ranking civil servant, political advisor and candidate. He became the deputy under-secretary of management at the Ministry of Defence in 2014. He is the spokesman for “Horaces”, a group of high-ranking civil servants and business executives who meet once a month and discuss the National Front (now National Rally) party platform. He was a candidate in the 2017 French legislative election.

Mr. Messiha tells the audience, “You’d best learn to pray in Arabic.”

Video transcript #1:

00:00   That’s what we blame Charlie [Hebdo] for. We blame Charlie for being secular, but it’s only been
00:03   50 years that Charlie [Hebdo] has been secular. —It goes after all the religions.
00:06   Exactly, it treats every religion the same.
00:09   Actually, when you put the word religion in a drawing,
00:13   if you place the word Islam in a drawing, afterward
00:17   there are miles of messages and those messages are death threats. For the past five years,
00:24   I’ve been going to the police station every month or so to file a complaint
00:28   about death threats, not insults. Death threats.
00:31   Yes, that’s what Riss [Sourisseau] also said in his interview yesterday in the Sunday paper.
00:35   It’s necessary to file complaints each time.
00:38   You live in a bunker at Charlie Hebdo. We need to remember that
00:41   people still live under police protection.
00:45   We’ve all heard about the different events that have taken place
00:49   over the last few days. Thibault de Montbrial, a fierce advocate of secularism,
00:53   says that the threat is even stronger
00:57   today than five years ago. —The threat is stronger because it has become home-grown. The reality is
01:03   that this threat is strong, because this barbaric and deadly ideology
01:08   has permeating a number of minds.
01:12   As we’ve seen in recent days, people will do anything to explode what they have to explode.
01:22   So, yes, it is strong, it is very strong and along with that, to top it all off,
01:27   no president, no government, no minister of the interior is doing anything against it. —Yes.

World War 3 Started in 2001 With the Attack on the Twin Towers

Bishop Guy Leven-Torres has commented here frequently in the past, but this is his first guest-essay for Gates of Vienna.

World War 3 started in 2001 with the attack on the Twin Towers

by Guy Leven-Torres

I left this comment on YouTube on 2nd January:

The New Ottoman Imperium is trying to form. We live in a truly multipolar world. Then there is the Beltway involving Russia and China but also Iran. The Iranian regime is actually quite weak and it would not take much to push it over. They will make a limited strike against the USA to save face in the eyes of Hezbollah. My question is: Where is the EU in all this? Europe looks weak and fit for client status (dhimmi) of this possible new power, now in process of forming. Russia will not risk a war at present with USA. The EU is a wet soggy paper tiger with huge a Moslem population. Iran will conduct a campaign of asymmetric warfare using its jihadi colonists in Germany, France, Holland and possibly the UK.

There will be a huge increase in illegal migration from Islam, a surge already threatened by Erdogan. Our “Useful Idiot” multiculturalists have become trapped by their own fixations and goals. If they had any sense they would cease Moslem migration forthwith. The EU has made the same mistake as Stalin did with the wooing of Hitler and the 1938 Molotov-Ribbentrop pact…

I will use this comment now to expand my paradigm of what I think is underway. Nobody can be 100% correct, but the method of modelling I have used in past theories and analysis has worked well.

The Romans were past masters of the strategy of Divide and Rule. They controlled an Empire from Southern Scotland to the Persian Gulf. They were above all else pragmatists and saw no shame or contradiction in bribing aggressive German tribes, to assuage their invasive ambitions to enter the Imperium. Often this was done to buy time before sending in the Legions to finish the job. Edward Luttwak described the Roman system as an “Economy of Force” that utilised the seeming invincibility of the Roman legions to come back from the brink and strike at the heart of the enemy with terror of gladius and scutum. In these affairs reputation is all.

It is truly amazing how the Romans controlled such a large part of the known world with but 28 legions and an almost equal number of lightly armed auxiliary troops. Tiberius was one particular master of the Great Game, as was his predecessor Augustus. Both realised that Roman arms could not take or control the known globe, despite having immense reserves, as seen in its seeming ability to create and rearm its forces after disasters such as Cannae in 216BC, and even the destruction of three crack legions under Varus in the year 12AD on the Rhine. Each time Rome rallied and re-established its hegemony.

Rome suffered when hotheads and over-ambition took hold of less experienced minds. What we see today is the result of over-ambition and ridiculous ideas of exceptionalism spouted by the likes of Globalist Neocons like former President Obama and his predecessors.

Donald Trump is very different from any of these earlier leaders, and this is why they seek to depose him by all and every means. It is Hillary Clinton and Barrack Obama’s exceptionalism that has led directly to the current impasse and situation. The void they created by weakening the US military, combined with foolish military cuts across the West and the wholesale dilution of the West’s culture and morality by cultural Marxist ideology, has led to the emergence of a new “Wannabe” Caliph in the form of the Islamist Erdogan, now seeking to extend his sway across the Inner Sea or Mediterranean into Libya. I feel he has over-extended himself, and in a while he will find it difficult to maintain power in Turkey, let alone Libya.

The New Normal: A Warning

It is commonly said that you can get used to anything. That little aphorism is being put to a stress test in Europe and the rest of West as we move into the third decade of the 21st century. In his latest essay, Michael Copeland discusses this sad state of affairs.

The New Normal: A Warning

by Michael Copeland

“I’ve found my mittens! I’ve found my mittens!”, cried Charlie Brown, “Now where’s the pie? You always get pie if you find something lost.”

This little incident, from a well-loved cartoon character, expresses how the infant learns, by experience without comprehension; by osmosis, as it were. A pattern is experienced, is perceived as cause and effect, and is thereafter relied on. It is a built-in response. In the small child’s world things are automatically normalised. The infant is programmed to accept patterns. Small children in German extermination camps played among the corpses. They knew nothing else: that was their normal. It is only later in life that the mind begins to question things.

Normalising is what we all do without thinking about it. It is not only a childhood support mechanism, it is an adult’s process of coping. As road traffic becomes ever heavier we do not sit trembling and incapable at the wheel just because conditions are no longer as they were before: we adapt. Our subconscious minds continually make the adjustment for us: the new outlook is programmed in, and the old one erased. This happens by autopilot, which takes the load off our conscious minds. When looking at old films it suddenly becomes apparent quite how much has changed, and how we have taken it in our stride as we have gone along.

In recent decades we in the West have had a great many cultural changes inflicted upon us by our Dear Leaders. We have been obliged to adapt. Some changes, though, have been too great: these have powered what the media call ‘White Flight’, in some cases better described as ‘Drive-out’, that has emptied many neighbourhoods of their historically indigenous inhabitants. Conditions have been changed so markedly, and so beyond our control, that we have been obliged either to accept them as accomplished, albeit without our consent, and begin to have mental problems, or to leave for life elsewhere. For the younger generation, who have not known the extent of the difference, acceptance is easier, and probably more subconscious.

First there is one niqab. That is a surprise. Next there are more: then there are many. After that they are not a surprise any more: they are the new normal. It has become unsafe for pensioners and women on their own to venture out in the evening, so they stay in: the new normal. Now we hear of schoolgirl genital mutilations, and next in ever growing numbers. Though the legislature has made it a crime, there have been hardly any prosecutions: it is the pattern. Now we hear of polygamous marriages, and official blind eyes or legal excuses used to justify lack of action against them: that is how it is now. Next we hear of child brides juggling a housewife’s duties with school: same again. It is against the law but little is done about it. The danger in all this is the silent shrinkage of expectations, the self-suppression of moral objections. Here is yet another child sex gang and the trafficking of under-age sex slaves. It is not news any more. Here is yet another ‘honor’ killing. Oh yes, they do that, don’t they. Another hand grenade? That is how it is: that is why we don’t go out any more.

In Belgium firefighters attending New Year’s Eve celebrations were accompanied by police. The public sector union representative, Eric Labourdette, protested:

2019: The Beginning of the End or the End of the Beginning?

Our English correspondent Seneca III wraps up the year from an Anglocentric perspective.

2019: The Beginning of the End or the End of the Beginning?

by Seneca III

It has been a fascinating year all round as in so many ways prevailing ideological and political dams cracked and started to leak once the sacred cows from which they had been constructed began to be herded towards metaphorical slaughterhouses weeping and squealing. Some of these sacred cows I will itemise below.

First, though, and surprisingly after so many years of censorship and suppression, it is now observable that the public and private commentariat — particularly in the UK where the protections of a First Amendment do not exist — have regained confidence in themselves, lost their fear of persecution and prosecution for speaking truth to power and in ever larger numbers loudly iterate the obvious and the previously unsayable. It is possible that they have subliminally realised the strength that there is to be found in numbers.

To continue: As the mutative process of non-existent ‘Global Warming’ evolved first into ‘Climate Change’ and then, as it became apparent that more and more of the educated and sane public at large refused to buy into this iniquitous project, its self-serving constructors desperately reconstructed the prevailing meme and delivered it as the form of hysteria labelled ‘Climate Emergency’ only to be derided further after the contrived appearance of a sixteen-year-old autistic child programmed to pollute the minds of a generation of young children whilst being paraded as an icon of salvation fell flat on its face.

She, Greta Thunberg, so inadvertently made the pragmatic “deniers’” point for them that I wonder at her promoters’ understanding of the history and inevitable consequences of such schemes. And I further muse on the fate of Jeanne d’Arc who from a similar young age was used by ambitious manipulators, and who also had ‘visions in the night’ for which she was first publicly venerated and later burned at the stake at the age of nineteen — not that I would wish that on the poor psychologically damaged child Thunberg, but I would have no objection to that becoming the fate of her parents and her other beneficial handlers.

Next: Mass migration from a failed third world — which could not provide for its heaving masses because of a low collective IQ, endemic kleptocracy, unremitting primitivism and a consequent inability to develop a workable socio-economic model that could supply at least the basic needs of its population — was more and more publicly recognized as the primary threat to survival by indigenous populations throughout the West. What had previously been a truth that did not dare declare its name now became a noisy rallying point for the frustrated victims whose lives and fortunes were being torn asunder on a rack of multicultural barbarism.

On the sidelines: The fightback against the petulant driveling of ‘academics’ began to take a stronger hold later in the year, but has only barely begun if it is ever to be effective. The cascade of socio-destructive propaganda being pumped out by Western universities these days is catastrophic: cisgenderism, transgenderism, heteronormativity, intersectionality, patriarchy, rape culture, racism, diversity, affirmative action, enrichment and toxic whiteness to mention but a few… a suppurating collection of ideological garbage that is infecting the minds of a whole generation of young people, perhaps several generations. This imposition of academia’s collective moral misconceptions inculcated and taught as a form of ‘knowledge’ based on their subjective sense of ethics is classic brainwashing. These smug, sinecured, so well-funded architects of this assault on the human mind deserve neither mercy nor magnanimity. It is imperative that henceforth they be denied all access to young minds and cast out into the real world to earn a living as best they can… if they can’t then so be it, and let them starve, for they no longer serve any useful purpose.

Joyeux Noel!

Seneca III sends his Yuletide greetings.

May I wish all you GoVers a very happy and joyful Christmas, hopefully amongst your family and friends; if this is not so either through Service or misfortune, may my thoughts and prayers and those of many others walk beside you this night so that you will not be alone.

I also wish to thank you all for the abundant and thoughtful comments you have appended to the various articles and reports published throughout the year for these in so many ways define our community.

Seneca III has some thoughts on the increasingly totalitarian-fascist behavior of the European Union as it enters its final decline.

Methodologies and Catastrophic Failure

by Seneca III

In the field of scientific research there are two distinct methodologies — the Theoretical and the Empirical. The former, being purely speculative, is by its very definition unable to be proven right or wrong until subjected to rigid empirical testing. Both disciplines, of course, have a mathematical basis, but whereas Theories are almost totally mathematically based, being pure speculation or the extrapolation of known facts, Empirical (experimental) science uses mathematics only to tabulate, record, analyse and explain repeatable experimental data before coming to conclusions that can then, where necessary, be verified or disproven by further experimentation.

If one projects these two processes onto the field of human affairs, particularly the ways in which socio-political, territorial and economic dynamics evolve and impact, then similar outcomes prevail. I would suggest that the EU and its Globalist agenda are a classic case thereof. Originally the concept of a United Europe was pure emotion-driven theory, wishful thinking, to be generous, but unfortunately that theory did not take into consideration the lessons of history. Very soon, as it was forced into utilising ill thought-through Empirical methods, hurried experimentation, to achieve its end. It soon became clear that the theory and its implementation were badly — indeed terminally — flawed.

Thus, much of the consequent experimentation — in finance, taxation, defense, education and ‘diversified’ multi-cultural demographics (essentially, an EU-inspired and -encouraged mass invasion camouflaged as immigration and asylum seeking etc.) — was not only poorly designed, it was also deliberately designed to produce a desired outcome which, in the end was not achieved. As a last resort the door leading to the imposition of a draconian control regime across the Union was opened… the very thing that the EU was created to prevent. [For a perfect example of this retrograde process see this Breitbart article.]

Now, the architects of that catastrophic experiment should be starting to fear the inevitable consequences heading their way as the forces of reversal and retribution gather on their near horizon. Soon the Bureaucrats of Brussels, their trailing troughers and their countless, treacherous allies buried deep in the bowels of constituent Nation States will truly reap what they have sown.
