The Dialectics of the Communist Revolution in North America

Last month our friend Vlad Tepes spoke at Rally in the Valley in Pembroke, Ontario. His topic was the Communist revolution that has already taken place in Canada and the USA, and the role that Hegelian dialectics plays in it.

The video below contains the audio of Vlad’s talk. Note: The date that appears on the screen while the video is playing is incorrect; the rally took place on August 25, 2023.

As with the climate: Von der Leyen wants a World Council for Artificial Intelligence

In view of the dangers posed by artificial intelligence (AI), EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has proposed the establishment of a new global advisory body. A body similar to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) could deal with the social risks, but also with the possible benefits of the technology.

Together with its partners, Europe should develop a global regulatory framework. “The crucial question is how we use a rapidly developing technology,” said von der Leyen. It is significant that even the AI inventors and developers are demanding regulation from politicians. [What about scrapping it completely? But that would mean they’d have to give up control, and that is something those freaks will never do on their free will.]

The possible dangers of artificial intelligence have been intensively discussed around the world for months. The text machine ChatGPT, Google’s competing software Bard and programs that can generate images based on text descriptions are causing a lot of public attention. There are concerns, for example, that their skills could be used to produce and spread false information. [Could? Their whole control mechanism depends on it. It’s going to be a given that they will use it to push their narratives despite reality.]

Council shows options for actions

In March, a number of tech experts such as Tesla boss Elon Musk and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak proposed a minimum six-month moratorium on the development of powerful artificial intelligence. This should give the industry time to set security standards for the development of AI and avert possible damage from the riskiest AI technologies, it was said at the time.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which Ursula von der Leyen named as a model for a possible new AI committee, is considered enormously influential. For the UN institution in Geneva, experts compile the scientific knowledge on climate change every five to seven years. They also show options for action and their respective consequences. The IPCC reports are the most important basis for political decisions to mitigate climate change. [And the taxpayers are bled even more to pay for this panel’s lavish upkeep while their jobs and incomes are being destroyed at the same time by AI.]

At the Precipice

The three videos below feature Tucker Carlson discussing various aspects of the current crisis that finds the United States poised to embroil NATO in a direct military confrontation with Russia.

Two clips contain excerpts from Adam Carolla’s podcast. In the first one Mr. Carlson explains the logical progression of the Deep State praxis that points to the eventual assassination of Donald Trump in order to prevent him from being elected president:

In the second video Tucker Carlson describes what seems to be a deliberate attempt to foment a war between the United States and Russia. Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for uploading this video:

Full Adam Carolla show.

In the final video, recorded in Hungary, Mr. Carlson interviews Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán about the war in Ukraine and the dangerous actions initiated by the USA that risk a direct war between NATO and Russia:

A Real Smear Job

At a recent event in Rhineland-Palatinate, Beatrix von Storch, the Deputy Leader of the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany) was smeared with excrement (some reports say it was dog-doo) in a surprise attack by a leftist pretending to be a fan who wanted to take a selfie with her.

Below are two videos about the incident. The first clip features a brief segment recorded at the event, which shows the actual attack against Ms. Von Storch. It’s not mentioned in any of the coverage about the incident that I’ve seen so far, but it appears that the spirited AfD leader grabbed a lump of the poo and flung it back at the perpetrator.

Getting Rid of the Danes

It’s hard to believe that almost eighteen years have passed since the onset of the Danish Mohammed Cartoon Crisis. Kurt Westergaard’s “Turban Bomb” was the iconic image for the affair, but it’s important to remember than twelve cartoons were actually commissioned and published by Jyllands-Posten, and one of the others is shown at the top of this post.

Dymphna and I covered the Motoons — for that was the shortened version of the name that rapidly emerged in the blogosphere — in the early days of this blog. Then, a couple of years later, when I became more closely involved with the European Counterjihad, I was able to make the acquaintance of some of those doughty Danes, and got to know the Scandinavian scene fairly well.

Back then Denmark was refreshingly different. Not only did the Danes tolerate political incorrectness, they even celebrated it on certain occasions. And freedom of speech was vigorously defended, even by government ministers.

That was then; this is now.

The Danish government is planning to reintroduce a blasphemy law so that the burning of Korans can be forbidden. They have been successfully mau-maued by Muslim leaders — including Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan — who demand that the Danes and the Swedes forbid their citizens to engage in activities that Islam deems offensive.

This is a watershed moment in the history of the West. It marks the beginning of the official transfer of power from the secular humanists to the proponents of sharia. The process will be slow, but inexorable. It will probably take a couple of decades before it is complete. In the end, the tenets of Islamic law will reign supreme in what were formerly known as the Western democracies. Savvy and cynical politicians and bureaucrats will convert to Islam in order to enjoy the privileges and perquisites of the new system. Those who don’t will become second-class citizens.

It will take a while, but we’ll get there in the end.

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

One of the people I was privileged to meet during my involvement with the European Counterjihad was the redoubtable Mark Steyn, who has been untiring in his struggle against sharia and in support of free speech. His latest essay is a retrospective on the Motoon crisis, and a somber recognition of the emergence of a dhimmi government in Denmark — The Danes, Gelded. Below are some excerpts:

Many years ago, my compatriot Ezra Levant observed that one day the Danish Mohammed cartoons would come to be seen as a more consequential event than 9/11. Not in the overall death toll, obviously — although the corpse count of the Motoons continues to rise (Charlie Hebdo et al) — but in its lessons for a free society’s enemies. 9/11 led to two decades of ineffectual warmongering in Afghanistan and elsewhere, and the goatherds with fertilizer soon had the measure of that. But the cartoons and the west’s reaction to them told the world that we would not defend core liberties such as freedom of speech. You don’t need to blow up our skyscrapers; we’re happy to surrender to subtler pressures.

And here we are eighteen years later, with the Danish Government proposing to criminalize the burning of the Koran and make it an offense punishable by fines and/or imprisonment.


~In 2005 Jyllands-Posten, one of the biggest-selling newspapers in Denmark, as part of an exploration of the state of free speech, was willing to publish a dozen cartoons of Mohammed by prominent cartoonists.

~In 2010, on the fifth anniversary, I was given an award by the Danish Free Press Society and appeared on stage with the society’s founder Lars Hedegaard and fellow freespeechers from across the Continent: the Norwegian comedienne Shabana Rehman, the Dutch cartoonist Nekschot, the Swedish artist Lars Vilks and the Danish-Iranian actor Farshad Kholghi.

If those names don’t ring a lot of bells for you, here’s the scorecard so far:

  • Shabana Rehman’s family restaurant was firebombed, and she was forced to live under 24/7 police protection, which is not terribly conducive to a career in observational comedy. She died of cancer last year at the age of forty-six;
  • Nekschot was already under so many death threats that he could only appear at public engagements with his face obscured and unidentifiable. So in Copenhagen that day he chose to wear a burqa. Funny, but not quite secure enough. He had already been arrested for “hate speech” with the Dutch authorities openly taunting him about the impending loss of his anonymity. The year after our appearance in Denmark, he gave up cartooning and went into hiding. I assume he is still alive;
  • Lars Vilks was speaking at an event on art and blasphemy when a Muslim opened fire with a semi-automatic. A Danish film director was killed and three police officers. The jihad boy then went to a nearby synagogue and killed a second man. Lars retired from public life, and died in 2021 with two of his security detail when their unmarked police car crashed;
  • oh, and our host Lars Hedegaard was shot at point blank range, but fortunately by an incompetent. So Lars survived, but his opponent managed to flee to Turkey.

Most of the above did not impinge on the media in a big way: There were no celebrities wearing #JeSuisLars buttons. Nevertheless, of the six who were on stage that day in 2010, there would be only two of us today: me and Farshad Kholghi, last men standing in an Agatha Christie for the jihad set — And Then There Were None. Come to think of it, that might make a blackly comic play, or novel, or film… But good luck finding a publisher or producer.

~In 2015, on the tenth anniversary, I was back in Copenhagen, this time with Douglas Murray:

Like Mark Steyn I’ve been doing these ‘defend free speech’ gigs for some years now and as Mark recently mordantly observed, I also sometimes wonder why I keep ascending up the running order only to realise that it’s because everybody who used to be ahead of me is either in hiding or dead.

As Douglas also remarked:

The event will be in the Danish Parliament apparently because it’s the only place in Denmark sufficiently secure enough that — we hope — the now traditional gunmen won’t be able to get in and shoot everyone.


As Marie [Krarup] said, the walls of Christiansborg are “thick and massive”. However, I woke up on the morning of the event to find that both the US State Department and the British Foreign Office had issued travel advisories warning their nationals to steer clear of both Copenhagen in general and Christiansborg Palace in particular.

“This is the End of Freedom of Expression in Europe”

Nicolas Dupont-Aignan is the president of the French party Debout la France, and a deputy in the National Assembly. Previously he was Mayor of Yerres, a southeastern suburb of Paris.

In the following video Mr. Dupont-Aignan discusses the piece of EU legislation that goes by the Orwellian name of “European Media Freedom Act”. The unelected panjandrums of Brussels intend to use the Act to implement total control of the media in the member states of the European Union.

The European approach is somewhat different from the one being used in the USA. Here the federal government collaborates with major social media outlets — squeezing them using its regulatory authority when necessary — to privatize the process of suppressing free speech.

Same end, different means.

The Koran in Tatters

Earlier this month I posted about PEGIDA, the anti-Islamization group that has chapters in several European countries. I had thought that the organization was mostly inactive, but now comes word from the Netherlands that PEGIDA is alive and kicking. Last Friday in The Hague there was a PEGIDA Koran demonstration in which a Koran was torn up, after which Muslims reacted in a predictable fashion.

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from Algemeen Dagblad:

Turkey calls the Netherlands on the carpet after a Koran is torn up

The Dutch deputy ambassador in the Turkish capital of Ankara has been called on the carpet by Turkey. That is confirmed by the Foreign Affairs Ministry. Turkey summoned the diplomat after Pegida leader Edwin Wagensveld tore up a Koran near the Turkish embassy in the Hague.

The deputy ambassador was told that Turkey is “troubled” by the continuing violations of the Koran and “strongly condemns” such actions, CNN Turk earlier reported. The top Danish diplomat also had to show up after incidents with the Koran in Denmark, according to Turkish media.

According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the deputy ambassador explained that the Netherlands considers the tearing up of the Koran a “completely tasteless and deliberately provocative act.” But the diplomat also stresses that freedom of expression is an important fundamental right in the Netherlands. “Ultimately, in the Netherlands, it is up to the courts to determine if the law has been violated, and not up to the government.”

Turkey has repeatedly expressed its disapproval of public violations of the Koran in Western lands. At the end of July, Ankara expressed its anger over a Koran burning in Sweden. That country wants to join NATO and therefore needs the approval of Turkey.

Counter-demonstrators also came to Pegida leader Edwin Wagensveld’s event on Friday. They shouted, among other things, “Shame on you,” and rocks were thrown. Wagensveld, in turn, said in the direction of the Turkish embassy, “You don’t belong here.”

Pakistan also has condemned the incident as “very offensive”. The Pakistani Ministry of Foreign Affairs describes the deliberate damage to the Holy Book as hurtful for all Muslims in the world. Pakistan is asking the Netherlands to ensure that such “hateful and Islamophobic acts” cannot take place. The Pakistani ministry says that nations are obliged under international law to prevent “incitement to hate”. The deliberate damage to a Koran, according to Pakistan, does not fall under freedom of expression.

Great outrage

Similar incidents in other European countries have caused great outrage in Muslim countries. Sweden saw the recent need to raise the terror threat level after Koran burnings. Justice Minister Dilan Yeşilgöz said last week she would take into account that the denigrating or burning of a Koran, also in the Netherlands, can lead to a heightened terror threat.

The Rot Starts at the Very Top

In the following video Paul Weston discusses the high-level corruption of the British police. His jumping-off point is the notorious recent incident in West Yorkshire in which a 16-year-old autistic girl was dragged away from home by police officers for using the word “lesbian” in what was considered to be a “hateful” manner (see this Breitbart article for more on the story).

Whoops! Never Mind.

The European Union, through its disease control agency, has locked the barn door after the horse has been stolen. In fact, not only has the horse been stolen, it has been sent to the knackers’ and rendered down into stew meat and gelatin.

It seems that the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) has determined that all the COVID-19 measures it enforced against the population were stupid and counter-productive. We “Corona-deniers” were saying exactly the same thing more than three years ago, and for our efforts we were vilified, stigmatized, cancelled, censored, and occasionally prosecuted.

It’s cold comfort to say “I told you so”, especially now that almost everyone has been jabbed with the Myocarditis Turbo-Cancer Special.

The conclusion of the European authorities: Pandemic restrictions should not have been imposed by law

According to a study by the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), measures such as house arrest and contact bans should not have been imposed during the pandemic, but only issued as a recommendation. The European authority reveals that the 2020-2022 restrictions had a catastrophic impact on all EU citizens.

ECDC research into the impact of non-pharmaceutical interventions on the lives of adults in the EU during the Covid-19 pandemic (2020-2022) seems preposterous without knowing how disastrous the impact of the restrictions and bans have been. However, the action taken by the European authorities is not accidental, but is preparing a different approach to a future pandemic, which is being talked about more and more on all channels. In summary, the investigation concluded that the measures, which severely restricted and impaired citizens’ freedoms, should not have been enforced by force. The most correct approach would have been to leave these measures at a recommendation level, most likely referring to the case of Sweden.

Likewise, the ECDC concludes that while it would be better not to introduce such restrictions, when they are imposed they should not be generalized, and the impact they would have on both the different social categories and the economic sector should be analyzed carefully. Although it is not said directly, the ECDC acknowledges that the measures taken to combat the pandemic have been inadequate in every respect and have had dramatic consequences at all levels.

“When planning the implementation of NPIs (non-pharmaceutical measures) at the population level, the scientific community and policymakers should consider not only their effectiveness in controlling disease and improving population compliance with NPIs, but also other aspects in the context of their impact on the community in general and on groups that have been shown to be more vulnerable to adverse impacts. An example could be public health, including health indicators not directly related to infectious diseases,” the ECDC document said.

Beatdown by Culture-Enrichers

As I reported a couple of days ago, a politician for the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany) named Andreas Jurca was ambushed and severely beaten in the city of Augsburg by a group of “southern-looking” gentlemen.

Below is an interview with Mr. Jurca recorded after his release from the hospital. It was conducted by Deutschland Kurier, the AfD’s in-house media service.

AfD Candidate Beaten up by Migrants

It’s open season on the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany) in Bavaria, with culture-enrichers doing the ultraviolence.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from Junge Freiheit. The translator’s comments are in square brackets:

Election campaign in Bavaria AfD state parliament candidate beaten up

After a barbecue with campaign workers, migrants are said to have beaten the Augsburg AfD chairman to the point of being hospitalized. Before that, the politician says, they made sure whether it was really him.


AfD politician Andreas Jurca was brutally assaulted. After he thanked campaign workers at a barbecue for their work in the Bavarian state election campaign, he reported to the Deutschland-Kurier that a group of migrants attacked the family man and another party friend on Saturday night. So far there has been no confirmation from the police. The investigative authorities have not yet responded to inquiries from Junge Freiheit. [I rather doubt that there will be a confirmation by the police or an investigation. Those who made these attacks possible are the ones who tell the police what they can and can’t do.]

The chairman of the Augsburg AfD and its city council faction appeared on the portal in a video interview on Sunday evening. Jurca is a seventh-place candidate on the AfD state list for the Bavarian state parliament elections. On the way from the celebration, he encountered a “larger group of southerners,” he reported. “By southerners, I don’t mean Spaniards or Italians.”

Perpetrators ask Jurca if he is the AfD candidate

The leader asked him: “Aren’t you the Andreas Jurca from the posters?” Then, according to the father of a five-year-old daughter and a six-month-old son, the attacker pretended to hold out his hand. He was immediately hit by an accomplice — everything went “black”, Jurca said. Words like “s**t Nazi” were used.

When the 35-year-old fell to the ground, “they started kicking me.” Jurca not only suffered severe bruises on his face and other minor injuries, the perpetrators also broke his ankle. The severely short-sighted politician also lost his glasses in the attack. When the perpetrators left him, he wanted to help his fellow party member.

Party friend also attacked

Jurca was disoriented, he said, and according to his own statements, went off despite the badly injured ankle — but in the wrong direction. Then he found his colleague: “His T-shirt was torn, he also had injuries, but thank God he wasn’t as badly off as I was.” The attack on Jurca had warned him.

Only afterwards did he understand that the attack “had to do with politics”. On the phone, due to shock he initially said to the police, “they attacked us for no reason”. When he thought about it further, it occurred to him: “There must be a connection, if he asks for my name, has it confirmed again, and then the blow hits.”

What’s a Few Death Threats Among Friends?

There has been an avalanche of death threats recently against Geert Wilders, the leader of the Party for Freedom (Partij voor de Vrijheid, PVV) in the Netherlands, but the Openbaar Ministerie — the Public Prosecution Service — says “ho-hum” about them. Who cares about death threats against Geert Wilders?

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this editorial from De Dagelijkse Standaard:

Public Prosecution leaves Geert Wilders in the cold: 66 death threats are just shoved aside

August 11, 2023

Is the Public Prosecutors Office still credible? In a shocking revelation, the Public Prosecutor’s Office has simply decided to do nothing with the 66 death threats directed at Geert Wilders. Yes, you read it right. Sixty-six death threats. To be clear, we are not dealing here with a random citizen, but with a prominent member of Parliament. It is simply scandalous how easily the Public Prosecutor ignores this case.

Posting from @Het_OM: They do NOTHING about the 66 death threats and warnings of attacks against me from abroad because [chance of] a successful prosecution is limited, and “they want to use the scarce investigative capacity for other threat cases”. Nice job that OM.

— Geert Wilders, August 11, 2023

Wilders, obviously furious, gave his unvarnished opinion on “X”: “Posting from the Public Prosecutor: They do nothing with the 66 death threats and warnings of attacks against me from abroad.” As the reason, they prefer to use the ‘scarce investigative capacity’ for something else. Well, who would have thought that the security of a member of Parliament wouldn’t be high on their list of priorities?”

Now the question arises: Would the Public Prosecutor have handled it like this had the death threats been directed against, say, Sigrid Kaag or Jesse Klaver? The answer is easy to guess. Then the media would have been on it for weeks and left no stone unturned to track down and prosecute the perpetrators. But it seems that there is a different standard for Wilders in the eyes of our “impartial” judiciary.

Donald Trump and Janez Janša: The Parallels

Last year I posted about Jože Bišcak, a Slovenian literary figure who was tried and convicted on spurious “hate speech” charges. In the following guest-essay, Mr. Bišcak explores the parallels between the judicial persecution of the conservative Slovenian politician Janez Janša, and the current vendetta against Donald Trump.

The Trump case vs. the Janša case

by Jože Bišcak

The indictment against Trump is a product of the communist school; we experienced this in Slovenia, for example, with the conservative politician Janez Janša in 2014

For a long time I regarded the United States of America as the beacon of freedom, the lighthouse of the free world. In recent years I have noticed that it is becoming a quagmire of wokeness, where people are losing their jobs because of spoken words, and the Democratic Party, currently in power in the White House, is resorting to communist methods to deal with political and ideological opponents. I know what I am talking about, as I spent half of my life in socialist Yugoslavia, where the Communist Party of Yugoslavia ruled with the help of the political police (UDBA). It either physically liquidated rare dissidents or sentenced them to long prison terms in fabricated political trials, since it had law enforcement and the judiciary completely under its control.

The indictment against Donald Trump is a product of communist thinking; it is a product of communist ideology. In any truly legal state where the rule of law prevails, such prosecution against an individual would never occur, as the witch hunt through hijacked institutions is inconsistent and serves one purpose — to prevent Trump from winning the 2024 elections. And you can be certain that the trial will be dragged out and prolonged precisely into the time of the elections.

We have already experienced this in Slovenia. The communist regime (its blood and ideological successors), which seemingly fell in 1991 when Slovenia gained independence and declared itself a democratic parliamentary democracy in its constitution, retained influence over the judiciary (and other institutions, from education to public administration). The Slovenian judiciary was never lustrated; judges with a socialist mindset, who were directly subordinate to the Central Committee of the Communist Party, continued their work seamlessly even in a democratic state. They never shed their ties to the totalitarian regime. Just for lustration. Shortly before the fall of the communist state, a survey was conducted among judges (source: Dr Albin Iglicar in the book Introduction to Sociology of Law). It showed that 94.9 percent of professional judges of the courts of united labour were members of the League of Communists of Slovenia (all members of the LC at the Supreme Court and 61.9 percent at the basic level). Almost half of the judges stated that in their professional work, they “always rely on general social values and the moral principles of socialism”, with the “vanguard role of the League of Communists” taking the forefront in the realisation of “new ideas and concepts in our socio-political system”. Moreover, 80 percent of the judges emphasised that “moral principles of the socialist society” hold significant importance in their judgments. Therefore, judges were rendering decisions in accordance with the desires of the totalitarian regime.
