The Boogaloo, Swedish Style

I’m not sure how “Boogaloo” would be spelled in Swedish — perhaps bögalö — but in any case the article below from Samhällsnytt discusses the Swedish government’s plans to use the military against the Swedish people when the Nordic Boogaloo finally kicks off.

The authorities plan to deploy the military against the Swedish people — the government is cheering

January 17, 2020

In the media shadow on February 1, 2018, the same day that it was announced that Dan Eliasson would leave his post as national police chief and take over as director general of the Swedish Social Protection and Emergency Preparedness Agency (MSB), a fifth so-called case of “gray zone” was presented: Extracts and escalating gray zone problems. Something that can be used arbitrarily by the holders of power to ensure continued power, and that citizens with the “wrong” views on social development are silenced.

According to the Swedish Defense Research Institute, FOI, it is believed that “the threat that exists today against Sweden is more complex and diffuse than before” and that “the boundary between peace and war is not as clear, and this unclear state is often called the ‘gray zone’.”

Among the tools that one fears might be used in the gray zone are, among other things, “dissemination of disinformation” and “impact operations”. The new Typfall 5 [Scenario 5] will give “authorities and other actors in crisis preparedness and civil defense better opportunities to plan and practice gray zone problems.”

Recently Police Chief Anders Thornberg wrote to the government requesting increased support from the Swedish Armed Forces in a gray zone situation, which means that police and military can be deployed against the population in a case where the country is deemed to be in a state of quasi-war. The pastor and writer Helena Edlund has been looking more closely at the government’s new opportunities to push hard against the population.

But when ministers start talking about the gray zone situation, the Swede should take his earplugs out and wonder why the same government that has done its utmost so far to procrastinate and delay effective measures against terrorists and organized crime is suddenly very quick on the ball when it comes to the possibility of deploying military units against the civilian population?

Edlund believes that the same ministers and directors-general who say they cannot understand what the increase in violence is due to certainly know that everything is going according to plan. Typfall 5 is based on a course of events that reflects an escalating gray zone problem with considerable societal impact but where neither heightened readiness prevails nor are visible military means of force used. In such a gray zone situation, the Swedish Armed Forces are supported by civil defense, which is represented by the MSB in crisis situations.

Alternative media a threat

FOI Memo 6338 describes the situation, among other things, as follows:

The dissemination of propaganda by internet activists and alternative media, which is then sometimes reflexively spread further in traditional Swedish media, conveys a distorted picture of Sweden. The Swedish public is exposed to ambiguous facts and sometimes pure disinformation on issues that concern, among other things, order and security, migration and integration, traditional values, crisis preparedness and defense, and foreign and security policy. These information operations, which primarily utilize our open society’s information infrastructure in terms of the Internet’s social media and blogs, as well as indirect TV, radio and newspapers, have a certain negative impact on public confidence in government and politicians.

The Flood of Immigrants Into Italy Has Officially Resumed

Now that Matteo Salvini is no longer Interior Minister, and the Lega has no part in crafting policies on refugees, the Italian government is once again allowing the “rescue” ships belonging to NGOs — including some of the same ones interdicted by Mr. Salvini last year — to land in Italian ports.

Almost Heaven


(Click to enlarge)

Most Americans over the age of 40 know how the state of West Virginia was formed. For the youngsters, or for readers in the Far Abroad, this is what happened:

During the Recent Unpleasantness (a.k.a. the American Civil War or the War Between the States) counties in the western part of Virginia voted to secede from Virginia after Virginia seceded from the Union. They then established themselves as the separate and independent State of West Virginia.

Those good folks out in Them Thar Hills are close kin to the rural residents of the Commonwealth of Virginia, especially in the counties hard on the border with West Virginia — Buchanan, Tazewell, Bland, Giles, Craig, Alleghany, Bath, Augusta, Rockbridge, etc.

Now West Virginia is offering an opportunity to the 2nd Amendment Sanctuary counties and localities here in Virginia: If we want to secede from the tyrannical government in Richmond, we are invited to apply for admission to the State of West Virginia.

The counties up there along the Blue Ridge may well jump at the opportunity, and some of the ones down here in the Piedmont could follow suit. I don’t know if the same sentiment would extend all the way east to Tidewater and the Eastern Shore, but it could be that all the declared sanctuary counties and cities would want to stick together. If they do, most of the Commonwealth of Virginia will abscond to West Virginia, leaving only Northern Virginia (the Wretched Hive of Scum and Villainy) and a few progressive islands such as Richmond and Albemarle County (with its embedded Li’l Kumquat, Charlottesville). In other words, the original Commonwealth of Virginia will have been almost completely reconstituted.

Now, that’s one of history’s little ironies.

Below is the full text (also archived here) of the bill introduced yesterday in the West Virginia House of Delegates:

House Concurrent Resolution 8

(By Delegates Howell, Summers, Shott, Householder, C. Martin, Hott, Graves, Cadle, Barnhart, J. Jeffries, Maynard, Phillips, Foster, Hamrick, Steele, D. Jeffries, Wilson, Waxman, Bartlett, Paynter and Linville)

[Introduced January 14, 2020]

Providing for an election to be had, pending approval of the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and a majority of qualified citizens voting upon the proposition prior to August 1, 2020, for the admission of certain counties and independent cities of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the State of West Virginia as constituent counties, under the provisions of Article VI, Section 11 of the Constitution of West Virginia

Killing While Crazy

In the following interview from French TV, a woman named Nicole Belloubet discusses the possibility that “lone wolf” Islamic terrorists may be mentally ill.

From Wikipedia:

Nicole Belloubet (born 15 June 1955) is a French jurist and politician serving as Minister of Justice since 2017. She was appointed by President Emmanuel Macron after the resignation of François Bayrou. She previously was appointed to the Constitutional Council in 2013 by Jean-Pierre Bel, President of the Senate.

If I follow her reasoning in this clip, people who attack others with knives or guns while shouting “Allahu Akhbar” are mentally ill; therefore they are not criminally responsible for their actions, and can’t be prosecuted.

If France is like most of the rest of Western Europe, these mujahideen who evade prosecution due to being crazy will be sent for a brief stint in a loony bin before being declared “rehabilitated” and released back into society.

ZDF Obfuscates the Global Jihad

The following clip is an excerpt from a video posted by a German vlogger named Thomas at Digitaler Chronist Alternative (the original 16-minute video is here [in German]).

In his rant Thomas takes exception to what he calls the “framing” by the state broadcaster ZDF, which recently characterized Islamic terror attacks as “the fight between the Islamic and Christian worlds” on Twitter.

“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.

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…

Read the whole thing.

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.

2nd Amendment Showdown in Virginia

Colion Noir is a lawyer and 2nd Amendment activist in Texas. In the following Fox News clip he discusses the plans to ban and/or register certain guns in Virginia, and the resulting pushback that has prompted 90 or more localities to vote themselves 2nd Amendment sanctuaries.

Connecticut and New York passed similar laws a few years ago, but never attempted any systematic enforcement against citizens who refused to comply. Virginia Governor Ralph “Coonman” Northam, however, has staked his political mojo on enforcing such laws after they are passed. If he doesn’t declare martial law and call up the National Guard, he’ll have to send in the state police to apprehend citizens who refuse to comply, since most sheriffs have vowed not to cooperate.

This will not end well.

The big question, though, is how many Democrat delegates will actually vote to pass these bills. Many of the newly-elected legislators represent districts whose localities have now turned themselves into 2nd Amendment sanctuaries. If you represented such a district, what would you do if you hoped to be re-elected?

There Really is a Left-Wing Conspiracy

In his latest essay, our Dutch correspondent H. Numan responds to a commenter named Reconquista, who took him to task in the comment thread on his previous post.

There really is a left-wing conspiracy

by H. Numan

A few days ago I wrote an article about massive political losses of the left-wing parties in America and the UK. A reader responded this was nonsense; I was just an old fogey longing for the days where communists were prosecuted. I had to smile when I read it. Yes, I am an old fogey. Yes, I’m also a (C)old war warrior. What the reader doesn’t know, but I proudly say: I was member of the Royal Netherlands Military Constabulary or Koninklijke Marechaussee. A unit not exactly known for their love of progressiveness and liberalism. I’m not repudiating or refuting this reader; I’m more than happy to give him the benefit of doubt. Let’s just say he doesn’t know better. Most people don’t know all this. It’s up to me to clarify. That’s why I write for the Gates anyway.

Let’s start by looking at me, way back when I was a kid. My parents were devoutly Roman Catholic. They voted for the KVP (Catholic party), later the CDA (Christian Democrats, after the merger). For one reason only: they were Catholic, and Catholics vote for that party. No other reason. Now, my parents were not rich. Far from it. We never lacked for the bare basics, but no more. A car, for example, we never had. During the holidays we kids had to amuse ourselves; my parents couldn’t afford to go away on a holiday. At best we went on one— or two-day trips. My clothes — as many over the age of 50 will remember — were usually hand-me-downs from elder cousins who had grown out of them. Fortunately, my sense of fashion was and still is non-existent.

You might say that my parents and myself later on were the ideal voters for a labor or social-democrat party. After all, we had a lot to gain and nothing to lose by voting labor. Yet I never felt attracted to socialism in my life. Not as a young boy, not as a young new voter and certainly not now. I think you have to work to achieve something. You can choose something else, but that is your choice. Don’t ask others to pay for your hobbies and daydreams. So you can say I’m a die-hard conservative from the cradle. I never voted conservative (VVD) because I particularly liked that party, but more for want of anything better.

Right now, we have more options. For me there’s the PVV party, which is a conservative party for the common man. There is also FvD (Forum for Democracy), which is another new conservative party. Only this one targets a more affluent audience. The VVD party calls itself a people’s party, but in real life they are anything but. The VVD only works for the people who actually own factories, businesses and banks. Nowadays it’s a wishy-washy party trying to be as progressively liberal as it can get away with. Which is quite a lot, regretfully. The name VVD stands for Volkspartij voor Vrijheid and Democratie, in English: People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy.

Now you have a bit of a background. Let’s look at the conspiracy. The biggest lie of them all is calling national socialism anything other than socialism. Both national socialism and fascism are variants of socialism. Neither Hitler nor Mussolini had a problem with socialism itself. All they did was add nationalism to it. Or get rid of the ‘inter’ prefix, if you prefer. And Hitler was quite enchanted by the extreme racism, the infamous Jim Crow laws of the Democrat Party in the southern USA. That’s what he based his Nuremberg Laws on. Not on muslim dhimmi laws, as I stated in an earlier article. He probably would have, had he known about them. Those laws are even more vile.

But Hitler and Mussolini hated communism, you say. They persecuted communists, locked them up, killed them and conquered (or try to) communist states? Surely you are mistaken! Not at all. True, they most certainly hated communism. Not because they were on opposite sides of the political spectrum but because they are so closely related. That happens a lot in history. We had many wars between Catholics and Protestants, or Shiite and Sunni muslims to mention a few. Both share more than 96% of their opponents’ ideology, differing only on minor points. For which they fought and fight each other to death. Make no mistake: national socialists and fascists are both forms of socialism. They just don’t like the ‘inter’ prefix.
