French Communist, 1992: Politicians will tell you they can do nothing, because the EU orders come from Brussels

The Treaty of Maastricht in 1992 was the biggest single step in the gradual formation of the European Union. Before it came the Treaty of Rome and various other treaties that created the European Coal and Steel Community, the European Economic Community, and the European Community. Maastricht marked the beginning of the European Union, which reached its final form with the implementation of the Lisbon Treaty in 2009.

The video below is from an interview with Francis Wurtz, a French communist who served in the European Parliament from 1979 to 2009. It was recorded in 1992, before the treaty was signed. He said, “If Maastricht passes, I tell you that there will be a social explosion when people realize what kind of trap they have been led into.” That and his other predictions were exactly right; he could see what was coming.

In Budapest, the Muezzin Yodels for Guy Verhofstadt

Guy Verhofstadt is the leader of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE), an allegedly “centrist” group in the European Parliament. Our Hungarian correspondent László files this report on Mr. Verhofstadt’s visit to Budapest to campaign for the election.

Guy Verhofstadt visits Budapest

by László

The independent right-wing media outlet Vadhajtások trolled Guy Verhofstadt’s public programme in Budapest today. Worth every minute.

Verhofstadt, nicknamed the “Tooth Fairy” in Hungary, is in Budapest today to support the EU election campaign of the Hungarian Momentum party, which is a member of Soros’s ALDE group. Virtually no supporters of ALDE or Momentum appeared in the streets. The party may get at most one seat in the European Parliament, or else will disappear.

Today the Tooth Fairy got some of what he and his ilk deserve. The Islamic call to prayer was loudly playing, and cries of “Allahu Akhbar” and “you are a traitor to Europe” were shouted at him while he was trying to give interviews to the globalist media. (Otherwise you cannot hear the Islamic call to prayer anywhere in the streets in Hungary: the Muslim population is around 0.5%.) The activists say in the video that the Islamic call is apparently what Verhofstadt wants for this country too, which is why they are playing it for him.

The interview took place in front of the building of the Supreme Court of Hungary. One can see in the video that the dozen policemen are there to protect the building from a potential leftist attack, and could not care less about the right-wing trolls. Even if the activists were threatened by the leader of Momentum party, saying “you should be taken away by the police,” they obviously were not.

France Does Not Belong to the French!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[…]

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

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

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

[…]

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

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

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

The Blind Men and the Elephant in the Room

With the European parliamentary elections rapidly approaching, and after today’s reports that Prime Minister Theresa May will seek a vote in the House of Commons on a second Brexit referendum, Seneca III sends these thoughts on the apocalyptic state of affairs in Modern Multicultural Britain.

The Blind Men and the Elephant in the Room

By Seneca III

The global war of minds continues unabated in virtually every sphere of our lives, always under the dark shadow of the elephant in the room.

For example, four top Western generals recently met at Sandhurst to debate items that change the essential character of war: the utility of autonomous weapons, the possibilities of pharmacological enhancement of soldiers, and the enduring importance of deception. It is reported that the discussion was held in a context in which each of them indicated the tension between military advantage and ethical constraints.

Why anyone would think there should be ethical constraints in a war against global Islam, which does not recognise such restraints in any way at all, is beyond me. The purpose of war is to ensure one’s own survival, and only total war seen through to victory can guarantee that. But, as always, at the end of the day policy is determined by politicians, as determined by their interests and those of their financial backers, not those of the body politic they were elected to serve.

In Westminster the current malignant proclivities of our parliamentarians, all of them, reminds me of a Wagnerian opera, where just before the gods marched into Valhalla it was said that it would end in Götterdämmerung… the destruction of the gods and of all things in a final battle with evil powers. The ongoing persecution of elderly veterans from wars long gone, wars which they were sent to fight according to the policies of the government of the day, is a living example of this process.

Thus, a problem I now foresee is that when the reality of their failing position and future prospects finally sinks in, the political classes will throw to the wind any sense of probity and decency they may have left and adopt a scorched-earth policy on their way out, doing even more damage to our democratic processes, our national security and the integrity of parliament than they already have, and leave us with nothing but the elephant in the room — that is why men and women of the indigenous ethnic majority must be able to decide on their own values and priorities and negotiate with others of the same to mutual benefit. When negotiation with invaders and their enablers is no longer an option, when that collection of deconstructionists is irrevocably determined to prevail in its interests alone, irrespective of ours, another dynamic enters human affairs from stage right.

That essential dynamic, freedom, is, above all other things, the most expensive, for it requires of us a willingness to confront those who would deprive us of that freedom — these days under the guise of ‘refugee’, asylum seeker’, ‘human rights’, ‘multiculturalism’ or those other moronic epithets bandied around with manic ferocity when anyone has the temerity to question the veracity of this evil nonsense — ‘Fascist!’, ‘Far Right’ and ‘Racist’. This is what unavoidably places us in the forefront of the battle ready to fight them to their death, for on that path is found the only way we can pass what is left of our freedom on to our children and grandchildren with any sense of surety.

The Entrapment of Heinz-Christian Strache

Until a few days ago Heinz-Christian Strache was the vice chancellor of Austria and the leader of the FPÖ (Freiheitliche Partei Österreichs, Austrian Freedom Party). Then a video surfaced that appeared to show him cutting a corrupt deal with a Russian investor. The video was recorded before the last general election, but wasn’t used against Mr. Strache during the campaign. It seems to have been held in escrow until now, just before the European parliamentary elections — in which the FPÖ was expected to do well, making it an important ally for Matteo Salvini, Geert Wilders, Marine Le Pen, and the other “populist” parties after the new parliament is seated.

The pretend Russian deal was an obvious set-up. As soon as I read the details, they seemed to point to a deep-state operation masterminded by Sebastian “Boy” Kurz, the leader of the ÖVP (Österreichische Volkspartei, Austrian People’s Party) who went on after the election to become chancellor, heading a government in coalition with the FPÖ. With the help of the German and Austrian intelligence services (and the Russians, of course), it looks like Mr. Kurz had planned in advance to create a reason to jettison Mr. Strache and call an election, after which he would be able to lead the government without the help of the FPÖ. I don’t understand his certainty that he can pull it off; but then, he knows the internal political currents in Austria, and I don’t. I assume he is anticipating a new coalition with the Social Democrats.

The following analysis of the entrapment of Heinz-Christian Strache more or less supports my intuition. It was recorded by Oliver Janich, a German author and journalist.

What’s particularly interesting about this video is Mr. Janich’s revelation that the TV comedian Jan Böhmermann was deeply involved in the entrapment scheme, and was at least a passive collaborator with the intelligence services. Long-time readers will remember that Mr. Böhmermann got himself into a spot of bother three years ago by publicly reciting a vulgar but amusing poem about Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

A Tale of Two Opinions

Europeans are of two minds.

One of those minds is a small one, shared by relatively few people — European commissioners, most members of the European Parliament, the leaders and members of establishment parties in the member states, elite academics, and media apparatchiks.

The second mind is the one shared by ordinary European citizens.

The first mind is of the opinion that Islam belongs in Europe: “Everyone knows that!”

The second mind believes that Islam has never belonged in Europe, does not belong there now, and never will belong there.

The first opinion is well-represented by Frans Timmermans. Mr. Timmermans is currently serving as first vice president of the European Commission, and is in line to succeed Jean-Claude Juncker as the next president of the European Commission. That is, if the new “populist” European Parliament doesn’t withhold its support for him; we’ll know after this week’s elections. The European Commission doesn’t answer to the European Parliament, or any other body but itself, but it might be reluctant to seat a new president who had already been given a vote of no confidence by its alleged “parliament”.

Anyway, here’s what Mr. Timmermans had to say about Islam in Europe. Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

In contrast, the video below highlights the results of a phone-in poll in Germany. More than 95% of the callers said: “No, Islam does NOT belong in Europe.”

Mind you, this was a self-selected sample — people who watched a certain TV program and decided to call in. But it’s still significant. And I doubt the citizens of France, Britain, Denmark, or Italy are any less “Islamophobic” than the Germans.

Once again, Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Frans Timmermans is Dutch. Maybe the Dutch are more tolerant and understanding than the Germans. Maybe they, unlike the ignorant and unwashed of the European hinterlands, are aware of Islam’s rich place in European history, which it has held since 600 years prior to the time it was founded.

German Feminist Departs the Narrative on Islam — And Pays For It

Alice Schwarzer is a prominent journalist and feminist in Germany. She isn’t someone who would normally be described as a “right-wing extremist”, but when she veered off the Narrative on the hijab (“a garment of modesty”, “empowers women”, etc.), she became one, and thereby got herself into hot water.

She must not have heard that Islam trumps every other leftist dogma — whether feminism, LGBTQ, abortion, or atheism. If one of those comes into conflict with sharia, then sharia wins. If Ms. Schwarzer didn’t know that before, she surely knows it now.

A Syrian in Germany Confounds the Narrative on the “Civil War” in Syria

The following video features the remarks by a Syrian-German named Manaf Hassan. Mr. Hassan’s parents were actual refugees, not like the “Syrian” “refugees” that are currently flooding the country.

His talk was a part of a symposium hosted by the Greens (Bündnis 90/Die Grünen) on May 15 entitled Die Zukunft Syriens — Perspektiven eines zerstörten Landes, “The future of Syria — Perspectives of a ruined country”. As far as I can tell, the video of the full event is here, but I didn’t have the patience to watch the whole thing in order to determine whether Mr. Hassan’s remarks were actually included in the footage.

The Greens had gathered to weep over the puir wee bairns and other victims of the war in Syria, and to condemn the evil actions of the dictator Bashar al-Assad. They were plainly agitated and discomfited by what Manaf Hassan had to say, since he veered off the Narrative and said any number of things that are not permitted to be spoken in public.

Random Acts of Madness

The EU parliamentary elections are coming up shortly, so the German establishment is busy finding right-wing extremists under the bed — even if it has to roll out the bed and put them there itself.

Stuff Happens

Satirical Week in Review by Hans Heckel
May 4, 2019

Why confidential information is again filtering out of National Security, everywhere where danger is lurking, and why you too are an extreme rightist

Shocking reports come to us just in time for the approaching EU elections. One is about the increasing danger from right extremist “dangerous persons.” The second is about the increasing danger from the populace. According to the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV), a growing danger is coming from right extremists. That is according to a “confidential analysis” by that office made available to the Welt am Sonntag. Since Thomas Haldenweg took over from Hans-Georg Maaßen as head of the secret service, internal matters have been, accidentally of course, dribbling into the public arena, if they are of some political use.

Last summer, when the leading parties needed something to use against the AfD[1] after a demonstration in Chemnitz, one spook misplaced the definition of “Alternative” as a “Test Case” directly into the hands of journalists. Indeed, such a classification as “test case” is confidential, but — oops! — something happened. And the EU elections are almost here — the ones in which the “right populists” could do very well. And, just in time, the next confidential information from the security forces lands on the desk of a Sunday gazette. Stuff happens!

What is in this analysis? We had hoped for fearful exposés, after hearing in connection with the Christchurch massacre of the existence of a “Fascist International” — a globally active, gigantic brown network. Instead, there are barely organized small groups and individuals. In other words, marginal individuals who drool at the sight of a Hitler picture, or dim-witted drinking buddies in attic rooms. BfV’s report must admit (in a whisper) that there is not much here. In elegant gobbledygook, it states that there were “gaps in planning and accomplishing.” In plain German, this means that these morons possibly had something evil in mind, but, luckily, didn’t have the brains to get it done. However it isn’t a good idea to be happy about this, because it doesn’t fit into the picture of a “growing danger.”

This danger can be demonstrated with hard facts. In January, by the BfV’s count, there were 31 “dangerous persons.” Two years ago, there were only 22. That is counting the types from the group “Revolution Chemnitz,” named in the exposé in Welt am Sonntag.

We were already terrified by these people months ago. They tried to inspect the IDs of people on Chemnitz’s Schlossteichinsel[2] and later went after a group of Germans and foreigners with glass bottles, quartz-sand gloves[3] and a cattle prod. The media were electrified, saying that the Chemnitzers were planning no less than upending the democratic system.

The ringleader was apprehended on the same day. A search of the revolutionary’s premises disclosed, to be sure, neither explosives nor firearms, but instead an air rifle and a billy club. Certainly a closer search would have uncovered one of those notorious blank-shooting guns, which — after a shot from middle distance (in the case of this weapon, ca. 3 to 6 centimeters) — can cause a hematoma the size of a freckle, which the victim could carry for life. Or at least for his next three days of life.

How an attack on the Schlossteichinsel was expected to incite a coup is a mystery. Connoisseurs of the affair presumed the attack was simply a trial run for the great putsch. How may we think about that? Did the Chemnitz “revolutionaries” intend to capsize the island as a “test run” for the overthrow of the “media dictatorship and their slaves” as their internet tirades called those in power in the land?

At any rate, the group is said to have tried to acquire semi-automatic weapons, but that failed — “gaps between planning and accomplishment,” you see. And meanwhile, eight of the group are sitting in jail.

The Studio Audience Loves to Hear About Death Threats Against the AfD

We’ve reported in the past (most recently here) on the case of Frank Magnitz, the leader of the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany) in Bremen. Back in January Mr. Magnitz was brutally attacked and received a severe head wound, presumably at the hands of local antifas.

The following video shows an excerpt from a recent TV appearance by Mr. Magnitz. As one would expect, the moderator and panelists are unabashedly hostile and contemptuous of the AfD leader, but you’ll also notice that the studio audience claps and cheers at the mention of death threats against Mr. Magnitz and the owner of the venue who had to cancel AfD events.

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.

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.

Many thanks to JLH for the translation from Mr. Broder’s website:

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.
