A Victim of the Swedish Opinion Police

Åsa Westerberg is a Swedish anti-sharia activist who has spoken out against the intolerance and misogyny of Islam on multiple occasions. “New Swedes” who adhere to the religion of peace have denounced her to the police frequently enough that she has now been harassed several times by special anti-“hate” goon squads of the police. The police tactics that she describes below are stunningly totalitarian.

Brexit on the Sands of Time

Tomorrow is the big day in the UK: the General Election. Will Boris Johnson remain Prime Minister, and implement some sort of faux-Brexit? Or will we have to endure a government under the ghastly Jeremy Corbyn?

Our English correspondent Seneca III sends his thoughts on these and other matters.

Brexit on the Sands of Time

by Seneca III

Above all things the Brexit Circus has given us a metaphorical microscope with which to examine the putrid innards of the Palace of Westminster and far beyond. It has exposed in detail the full extent of the devious workings of the establishment and its fellow travellers and their blatant contempt for democracy. It has most of all peeled back layer by layer the darkly flawed construct that is the EU and revealed the motivations, control mechanisms and future intent of those presumptive masters across the ditch.

The EU and, to a lesser extent the USA, thanks to what remains of its once sound constitutional foundations, are both monoliths built with good intent but now drowning in an ideological cesspit created by a political class consumed by an insatiable lust for power.

For as long as these huge, centralised constructs attempt to force one law, one retrogressive culture and one sort of politics on all different demographics trapped within their sphere of influence there will be resistance. Neither will China, in the longer term, be an exception.

In the US and the EU the founding objective of both continental collectives was to take their destinies solely within their own compass, justifiably in the former, case but the complete opposite in the latter. In the Old Dominion it was done openly after years of requesting reasonable and equal treatment (No taxation without representation!) by the Crown, but in the EU, starting after the secretive, early Bilderberg Conferences which culminated in the birth of the apparently benign EEC, it was accomplished surreptitiously by guile, back-room conspiracies, subterfuge, self-interest and lie after lie after lie… a process our own malignant collection of morally destitute and arrogant political classes here in the UK aided and abetted with alacrity.

Yet, on both sides of the pond, the current mindset remains recalcitrant and will not easily take to the threat of an existence bereft of individual freedoms in a vast human hive controlled by the few for the benefit of the few, not the many.

To Our Cloying Mistresses

For a change of pace, here’s a riff by JLH on a well-known poem by the great Metaphysical poet Andrew Marvell.

To:   Nancy forever-the-Speaker Pelosi, A I-despise-my-constituents OC, “truly Illegal” Omar, Rash and-then-some Tlaib, Alyssa my-bottom-is my-best-known-feature Milano, Jane if-I-can’t-be-a world-class-beauty-I-can-be-a-world-class-jerk Fonda, and honorary “mean girls” Adam my-pencil-neck-constricts-my-thinking Schiff and Gerald they-sucked-out-my-fat-and-some-of-my-brain Nadler
 

To Our Cloying Mistresses

by JLH, with apologies to Andrew Marvell

Had we but world enough and time,
This nonsense, ladies, were less a crime.
We could leisurely propose a bill,
That just might heal the nation’s ills.
And tarry by Potomac’s rush
To declaim the nation’s debt to us.
Non-partisan, we’d find a way
To pass the tardy USMCA.
We’d debate in principle, friendship and calm
Until the conversion of all Islam.
We’d reduce our pay and also our pension
And never again give “pork” a mention.
We’d praise our nation, which is like no other
And greet new citizens as sister and brother.
We’d praise each of us of any race or station
Who freely chooses to love this nation.

But at your back you too must hear
The next election hurrying near.
Your power, as all power must,
Will shrivel up and turn to dust,
And as an hourglass’s sands,
Will trickle through your nerveless hands.
Consider, as you greatly dare:
Defeat is something no one shares.

While capable still of reasoned thought,
Compare what you “may” to what you “ought”.
And think while in the light of day,
Unlike nocturnal birds of prey,
How to squeeze yourself, if you are quick
Through the iron gate of politics.
And seek relief by setting free
Again this land of liberty.

Furkan Muslims Fight Islamophobia in Germany

The Furkan movement is a Salafist group in Germany that views Western democracy as the enemy and wants to establish a worldwide caliphate. The Furkans see a growing danger from the “radical right” in Germany, especially the AfD, and warn their members against the growing incidence of terror attacks against Muslims in Germany.

Pat Condell: Full National Sovereign Independence

In the following video Pat Condell discusses next week’s general election in the UK. If Britons who want Brexit fail to vote for Brexit Party candidates (in constituencies where that is possible) then they will guarantee that there will be no Brexit, and the UK will be tied to the EU until the entire corrupt edifice collapses. In particular Mr. Condell directs his remarks towards working-class voters who used to be supporters of the Labour Party:

Rural Virginians Resist the Assault Against Their 2nd Amendment Rights

The Democrats won control of both houses in the legislature after last month’s state elections here in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The Commonwealth already has a Democrat governor, Ralph “Coonman” Northam, whose blackface caper was discussed here at great length (and hilarity) last winter. The lieutenant governor had a #MeToo issue, and the Attorney General had his own blackface moment. If Coonman had been forced to resign, the other two would have toppled like dominos, which would have left the Speaker of the House of Delegates as next in line to be governor. At the time of all the politically correct brouhaha last February, the Speaker was a Republican, so forcing anyone to resign became an impossibility. If the top men had been Republicans, or if there had been a Democrat available to fill in, those boys would have been out on their aspidistras quicker than you could say shoo-fly pie.

So… After that stroll down memory lane, we now return to the Brave New World of December 2019. All important statewide elected offices are currently held by Democrats. I suppose they could oust ol’ Coonman now, but it appears that all has been forgiven, and the race-baiters are willing to let bygones be bygones.

Our new masters in Richmond are flexing their legislative muscles, and have proposed a law that would designate tactical training in firearms as an “unlawful paramilitary activity”. Depending on how one reads the proposed law (and the level of one’s paranoia), it could be construed to prohibit a father from instructing his children in the proper use of their guns.

People out here in the hinterlands of the Commonwealth don’t always pay a lot of attention to the goings-on in the State Capitol, but this new monkey business has raised some hackles. It has afforded me great pleasure to read about the county sheriffs who have publicly announced that they will not enforce any new laws that infringe on the right of citizens to keep and bear arms. These officers of the law believe (correctly) that to do so would be a violation of their oath of office to uphold the Constitution of the United States. And a number of rural counties have jumped on the bandwagon and declared themselves 2nd Amendment Sanctuary Counties.

The latest county to join the trend (or at least discuss joining it) is Cumberland County. Cumberland is just to the northeast of Farmville, whose immigrant detention center was featured here last week. The Farmville Herald covered the Cumberland proposal today. I’ve been enjoying the Herald lately (local newspapers are the best news sources), and haven’t yet exhausted the allotted number of articles that I can read for free online, so I am able to offer some excerpts here.

One thing to be noted about this article is that the Cumberland Board of Supervisors moved their upcoming meeting to a school auditorium, anticipating the attendance of a large number of concerned citizens:

2nd Amendment sanctuary on agenda

By Alexa Massey
December 7, 2019

The location of the Dec. 10 Cumberland County Board of Supervisors meeting has been moved to the Cumberland Elementary School located at 60 School Road. According to County Administrator Don Unmussig, the location change is due to the anticipated increase in citizen participation at the meeting due to a resolution on the agenda declaring Cumberland County as a Second Amendment sanctuary. The board meeting will still occur at 7 p.m. as planned.

A Second Amendment sanctuary resolution, if adopted by a county, means that the county will not expend resources to enforce certain gun control measures perceived as violative of the Second Amendment.

The decision to vote on the resolution comes after many Virginia counties have passed similar resolutions from concern that a new Democratic majority in the General Assembly could put the Second Amendment rights of gun supporters in jeopardy.

Following the Nov. 5 state election, Gov. Ralph Northam discussed plans to pass stricter gun laws in the commonwealth including universal background checks.

“I will introduce those again in January, and I’m convinced, with the majority now in the House and the Senate, they will become law, and because of that Virginia will be safer,” said Northam.

Jimmie Åkesson: “The Social Contract Has Broken Into Pieces”

Last month when Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven appeared on the TV program Agenda he said, “We did not see it coming,” meaning the current crisis of violence and lawlessness that mass immigration has brought to Swedish cities. He and his party did not see it coming, despite the fact that Swedish patriots had been warning about exactly that for decades (and were reviled by polite society for their views).

The above synopsis provides context for a recent speech by Jimmie Åkesson, the leader of the Sweden Democrats (Sverigedemokraterna). Thanks to the cluelessness and perfidy of the Social Democrats (and also the Moderates, the “center right” party in Sweden), the Sweden Democrats are now leading the polls as the most popular party in Sweden.

Greta Thunberg: The Avatar of the Totalitarian New World Order

Our Swedish correspondent LN has translated more material about the long-awaited climate messiah Greta Thunberg, and also includes his own introduction and afterword.

Introduction by LN

ZERO emission activist Greta Thunberg with her entourage is back in Europe. However, ZERO is not always ZERO. How will we achieve ZERO greenhouse gas emissions in the future?

The Swedish Environmental Protection Agency has calculated the matter and concluded that we in Sweden… will not be able to reach the long-term environmental goal of ZERO net greenhouse gas emissions until 2050.

ZERO net emissions, however, do not necessarily mean that no emissions are allowed. Up to one third of the emissions may still be present in 40 years.

While preparations continue toward reaching the ZERO emission target, more and more perceptive people are seeing through the Greta Thunberg & Coworker-led activism.

Here follows an essay from the Swedish dissident website Svegot Media:

Greta without a mask — the climate was a smokescreen

By Magnus Söderman
3 December 2019

Svegot Media

Many people saw early on what was behind the mask of this hectic “climate movement” attributed to Greta Thunberg and her school strike. But even more people understood nothing at all, and threw themselves into the new movement where they could signal their goodness. Unfortunately, it all turns out to be nothing but the same old left-wing extremism.

It may seem that you are good and stupid when you do not understand what it all was about. When the left-liberal media, left-wing politicians, a “philanthropist” like George Soros and the violent left (which forms the core of the Extinction Rebellion) gather around a common cause, then it’s about another united front — a classic modus operandi by the Reds. Choose one thing that many can agree on (get scared by), whip up the mood using your own old media and ensure that financing is handled with the help of capitalists and/or with tax assets. And over and over again it is the same thing that happens.

Climate change fit like a hand in a glove. Who wants to be the one who is “against” the climate? The question itself is also so big and cumbersome that one can refer to “science” and “ researchers” and entirely renounce one’s own responsibility. “The researchers say…” And so it was with that thing. It doesn’t matter if the “researcher” turns out to do “research” about gender or critical whiteness.

There must also be a sense of acute desperation when the matter is presented. Previously it was nuclear arms, or the arms race, or to rescue all children fleeing across the Mediterranean. This time the destruction of the Earth within 10, 15, 20, 50 years.

For those who are able to be guided by “opinion” and want to fit in (most people do), it is self-evident to be moved in one way or another. Maybe there is a certain amount of doubt, but it is still “for a good thing”. It’s also a great way to kick-start lazy youngsters. Although technology has made many young persons passive in real life, there is still in the young the will to riot. This is natural because part of the process of becoming an adult involves “revolting” and breaking away from mom and dad and learning to stand on one’s own two legs. This is something the Reds always have been good at cynically exploiting.

We Had to Destroy Free Speech in Order to Save It

In a recent speech in the Bundestag, German Chancellor Angela Merkel spoke out in favor of freedom of expression, but said that there must be limits to it, such as when it might “injure the dignity of others”.

I’m an American living in the USA, so the idea that free speech could be curtailed if someone’s dignity is offended seems nonsensical. However, Europe is a different sort of place, with different rules. Most Western European countries have hedged in freedom of speech with a lot of exceptions and restrictions.

Can you imagine the process by which the State would determine whether any particular instance of speech might be injurious to someone’s dignity? The legislature would have to order the formation of a Dignity Assessment Board, with members chosen by the head of government according to rules that guarantee the preservation of “diversity” in the body. The board would be granted a large budget so that it could examine each instance of possibly offensive speech at whatever length the circumstances required.

I’m certain that anyone who said “Islam is inherently violent” would be judged to have injured the dignity of others. However, if someone said “Jews are the descendants of apes and pigs,” he would probably be let off the hook…

The Lost City of Londonistan

Earlier today a terrorist attacked pedestrians with a knife on London Bridge, wounding several people before being shot to death by police (see the Breitbart report on the incident). The attack prompted our English correspondent Seneca III to send the following essay.

The Lost City of Londonistan

by Seneca III

Before the perfectly naturally angry and precisely directed response to today’s atrocity on and about London Bridge is officially designated ‘wrongthink’ and generates the inevitable screams of ‘Islamophobia!’ from the collective entity ultimately responsible, perhaps a little dose of facts and history may help level the playing field.

The noun ‘Islamophobia’ is a compound oxymoron concocted to obfuscate historic reality, and it is the reverse of the same propaganda coin the obverse of which reads ‘Religion of Peace’. Consider: how could such a long, fully documented record of fourteen centuries of relentless Islamic aggression during which Muslims launched jihad after jihad spreading death and atrocity far and wide across the globe now be ignored in order to enforce a revisionist dialogue totally contrary to recorded facts?

Europe itself was assaulted on every quarter from Iceland to Ireland to Scotland and England to Scandinavia and the Low Countries; from Spain to France to the Balkans and Austria. The devastation caused by this incessant slaughter and the after-effects of Islam’s scorched-earth policy was immense, and rendered vast swathes of Europe uninhabitable. According to some sources it was during these periods that approximately 15 million Europeans, close to 20% of a population of roughly 78 million, were either killed outright, starved to death, died of diseases spread through displacement or were taken and sold into predominantly sexual slavery in the souks of Arabia and the Barbary Coast.

The Italian scholar Franco Cardini wrote: “If we ask ourselves how and when the modern notion of Europe and the European identity was born, we realise the extent to which Islam was a factor (albeit a negative one) in its creation. Repeated Muslim aggression against Europe between the seventh to eighth centuries, then between the fourteenth and the eighteenth centuries was the ‘violent midwife’ to Europe.”

That we Europeans became less involved in internecine conflicts and more militantly oriented beyond our borders is not an indictable action but a natural product of the will to survive and a growing awareness that offence is the best form of defence. It was not a case of the West being the aggressor and Islam the victim, as the cultural relativism narrative would have us believe; if anyone has a grievance to air it is the West, not the demented slaves of Allah in the occupied territories now established from Londonistan to Glasgow and blighting the whole face of Europe like a human pox.

Remember, nothing in Islam changes. In the final analysis we would be mad to accept the claim that we Westerners are in any way responsible for the current state of affairs, other than that in our sublime stupidity and fear of being labelled ‘Racist!’ we have allowed our corrupted academic and political classes to physically impose this pre-medieval abomination upon us without much more than a fearful murmur of disapproval.

Matt Bracken and ESW on InfoWars


Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff appeared recently on InfoWars via skype when Matt Bracken was sitting in as host.

She talked about her just-released book, The Truth Is No Defense, which concerns her experiences being prosecuted and convicted in Austria for “denigration of a legally recognized religion”.

She and Matt also discussed the state of free speech in Western Europe (short version: there is none) and the current assault on the First Amendment here in the USA:

Moldova Comes to Ter Apel

The following video reports on the arrival of a substantial number of Moldovan asylum seekers in the small town of Ter Apel in the Netherlands. I should say “Moldovans”, however, because like the thousands of “Romanians” dispersed all over Western Europe, these Moldovans are actually gypsies, as pointed out by Romanian visitors at Vlad’s place. Natives of that particular corner of Europe can easily tell the difference.

Also worth noting is the special migrant-transport bus that is featured in the middle section of this clip. It is staffed by special guards (or bouncers) in addition to the driver because so many would-be riders become violently enraged when they learn they are expected to pay a fare to ride the bus.
