Bombs Bursting in Air

Happy Independence Day, everyone!

This may be the last 4th of July that is celebrated according to time-honored custom. The Woke Brigades are well on the way to victory in the culture wars, and they have determined that Independence Day is a WAYCIST occasion. The intention seems to be to elevate “Juneteenth” to fill the void left by removing our major midsummer holiday. Which is interesting, because all the statues of Abraham Lincoln are being pulled down, so we will be celebrating Emancipation without acknowledging the Emancipator.

There may be more than usual number of bombs bursting in air today, if the BLAMtifa battalions make good on their promise to inflict major damage at various prominent public locations. However, the last time I looked at the news, everything seemed to be proceeding more or less normally.

I’ll be hanging around here for a while performing my normal functions, and then I’m going to visit some friends for a traditional 4th of July celebration that involves burgers and adult beverages.

Dig ya later!

Terror at a Paris Shopping Center

Earlier today an unidentified gunman carrying what was described as a Kalashnikov appeared at a shopping center in Paris. The unfortunate gentleman, presumably suffering from some form of mental illness, reportedly shouted “Allahu Akhbar!” (which is Arabic for “Down with systemic racism!”) while terrorizing shoppers.

The shopping center was evacuated. Some witnesses said they heard what sounded like gunshots, but no injuries were reported. Police were unable to find the gunman, and then inexplicably called off the search for the suspect.

The following video is a report on the incident by the German vlogger Unblogd. Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

Paris: Police Inexplicably Call Off Search for ‘Allahu Akhbar’ Gunman at Les Quatre Temps Shopping Center

by Amy Mek

This morning, June 30, a manhunt was deployed in the business district of La Défense, at a shopping center just outside Paris, Les Quatre Temps (also known as 4-Temps). Police called off the investigation with the unnerving explanation that they could not find a suspect.

In 2015, this specific shopping center was singled out as a terror target in video released by Al Shabaab, the same terrorist group that killed 60 people in a Kenyan mall in 2013.

A shopper at Les Quatre Temps first reported that he had spotted a man carrying a machine gun around 9:30 am “confirming what several witnesses report.” Additionally, according to International news organization ok diario, “others claimed to have seen someone throw a glass bottle on the ground to the cry of ‘allahu akbar’.”

One female witness at the shopping center “heard explosions resembling gunshots”. She adds, “There was a crowd movement then everyone ran out.” Another witness named Olivia who is employed a Cafe in the center agrees, “I heard two shots. I was panicked. I went out and ran. “

The military and police completely locked the entire area, including La Defense train station and evacuated terrified shoppers who can be scene rushing out with their hands raised over the heads.

According to a news correspondent citing a police source, the man on the loose is “athletically built, wearing a black mask and is carrying a machine gun.”

Turks vs. Antifa in Vienna

Last Wednesday night violence broke out in Vienna among an unlikely group of combatants: Turkish Islamic zealots against an alliance of Kurdish feminists and Antifa. The antifas may have gotten more than they bargained for when they took up the cause of the Kurds and brought down the wrath of the Grey Wolves upon their heads.

The main battlefront was on the street in front of the Ernst Kirchweger Haus, which is the headquarters for Antifa. It’s named for a commie martyr who was killed in political street violence in 1965.

The following two videos concern the riots in Vienna. Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translations, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling.

Dr. Heinrich Fiechtner is a hematologist and oncologist, and a former member of the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany) who currently serves in the Baden-Württemberg regional parliament (Landtag).

In the following video you’ll see Dr. Fiechtner speak forthrightly about last weekend’s riots in Stuttgart, and express his contempt for the progressive policies that allowed the mass immigration of the groups that formed the bulk of the rioters.

I don’t know what the rules of the Landtag are, but the good doctor apparently violated them, and was suspended from parliament by the speaker as a result.

Whatever You Do, Don’t Mention Kanaken

Boris Reitschuster is a German journalist and vlogger, and was featured here earlier this month in a report on the BLM riots in Berlin. More recently he was censored by YouTube over the use of a single word, Kanaken, which is a pejorative German term for Turks, Persians, and other “southerners”, roughly equivalent to the English slang word “wogs”.

Before we move on to what happened to Mr. Reitschuster, here’s the relevant audio message from a police officer that was recorded during last weekend’s riots in Stuttgart. The accompanying footage is from the streets of Stuttgart on the same night, but is not necessarily coterminous with the audio track.

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

The article below from Politically Incorrect (also translated by MissPiggy) describes what happened to Boris Reitschuster after he uploaded the audio to YouTube:

“Parts of This Voice Message Could Unsettle the Population”

YouTube censors voice message from desperate Stuttgart police officer

by Torsten Groß

Just a few hours after the unbelievably violent riots in Stuttgart city centre, committed by a motley mob of mostly foreigners, refugees and Germans with a migrant background, a private voice message by a police officer in action — completely upset — appeared on social networks, which has already been heard by millions of people.

The obviously extremely shocked officer describes the events experienced quite realistically from his point of view. The video platform YouTube has now classified the video as “Hate Speech” and censored this moving voice message, which contradicts the first reports of the vast majority of mainstream media.

Here’s the link to the video that the blogger Boris Reitschuster posted on Sunday of the voice message by the Stuttgart police officer on his video platform page on the video platform YouTube with pictures of the civil war-like scenes. The upload was uncommented.

Within a few hours, the video produced by Reitschuster had tens of thousands of views.

The blogger Boris Reitschuster writes about this censorship on his blog:

“Yesterday I uploaded to YouTube the audio message of a policeman from the night of riots in Stuttgart. In the recording, an officer describes what happened there. Among other things, he says: ‘Here in Stuttgart is war, if you wear a uniform, then you’re just the victim, a miracle that no one has been shot. There’s more to come!’ The video was viewed nearly 30,000 times in less than 24 hours.

“YouTube has now blocked the video, claiming that it is ‘hate speech’. The network belonging to Google has taken it off the network and issued me with a warning. The reason: ‘It violates the guidelines on hate speech.’ And further: ‘It is your first violation; this is only a warning. If you receive another warning, your channel will be warned and you won’t be able to upload videos, post, or stream live content for 1 week. If you receive a second warning, you are not allowed to publish content for 2 weeks. If you receive 3 alerts within 90 days, your channel will be permanently deleted. We want you to stay on YouTube. Please note, therefore, the following:…’ A training lesson follows.

“In my view, this is censorship. I can’t detect any hate speech in the audio recording. Once the official makes an insulting statement when he says, ‘Just Kanaken’: As much as I distance myself from such terms — although similar references such as ‘dirty potato’ or ‘pork-eater’ for Germans pass through without problems — the ban on ‘Kanaken’ is completely excessive. Especially since the term is also considered by the judiciary to be at least partially not relevant to criminal law. Is an offensive word a reason to block an entire statement? In a country where women politicians can be called ‘F…’ with impunity? And where in the TAZ has openly asked to dispose of policemen in the garbage dump because they tend to be Nazis? So far, no one has made any attempt to block this article.”

The worldwide Internet doesn’t just consist of YouTube, Google and Co., who have recently only too gladly bowed to the “leftist-green zeitgeist” and its defenders in politics and the mainstream media — especially since the legal “thumbscrews” are gradually being tightened.

The moving voice message of the Stuttgart police officer, which everyone should listen to, may also be found in other places on the net that do not rush to censor according to New German standards.

Mayhem in Stuttgart

Stuttgart is a major city in the German state of Baden-Württemberg. Last night a large group of young people went wild in downtown Stuttgart, fighting with the police and looting businesses.

As far as I can determine from various news reports, native German youths instigated the ruction, and then opportunistic culture-enrichers joined in the fun.

Hundreds Run Riot in Stuttgart City Centre After Drug Checks

More than 20 people arrested after police injured and shops looted in late-night rampage

German authorities have expressed shock over a rampage of an “unprecedented scale” in the centre of Stuttgart, where hundreds of partygoers ran riot overnight and into Sunday, breaking shop windows, plundering and attacking police.

Two dozen people, half of them German nationals, were provisionally arrested and police reported 19 officers hurt. “They were unbelievable scenes that have left me speechless. In my 46 years of police service, I have never experienced this,” said the Stuttgart police chief, Franz Lutz.

Tensions built up shortly after midnight when officers carried out checks on a 17-year-old German man suspected of using drugs, said Stuttgart’s deputy police chief, Thomas Berger.

Crowds who were milling around at the city’s biggest square, the Schlossplatz, immediately rallied around the young man and began throwing stones and bottles at police. The groups, mostly men, also used sticks or poles to break the windows of police vehicles parked in the area.

“I sharply condemn this brutal outbreak of violence, these acts against people and things are criminal action that must be forcefully prosecuted and condemned,” said Winfried Kretschmann, Baden-Württemberg’s state premier, in a statement.

At the height of the clashes, some 400 to 500 people joined in the battle against police officers and rescue workers.

Violence in Dijon: Laurent Nuñez promises, an extremely firm response”

June 16, 2020

The Secretary of State to the Interior Minister, Laurent Nuñez, promised on Tuesday “an extremely firm response” to the incidents that have rocked Dijon in recent days and announced a new reinforcement of more than 150 police officers mobilized for the coming night.

“I want to send a very clear message to the thugs that we have seen exhibiting weapons, to the individuals who came to commit violence here in Dijon: Our response will be extremely firm,” he said upon leaving the police station.

Tuesday evening “there will be two mobile police units in Dijon,” of about 150 officers and troops of the Gendarmerie, in addition to the local forces, he added, noting that “they will be present as many times as needed.”

The secretary of state also said that he “is very proud” of the actions of the police since Friday, saluting their “courage” and their “determination”. “The police did not hold back. That is totally incorrect!”

In line with the speech of Emmanuel Macron Sunday night, Mr. Nuñez reaffirmed that for him the police were “the guarantors of our republican order,” within a context of defiance and demonstrations in France and the entire world against police violence.

Punitive Expeditions

For four nights Dijon has been plagued by tensions in a city rarely accustomed to this kind of trouble. Everything began on June 10 with the attack on an adolescent from the Chechen community. Punitive expeditions, “completely unprecedented”, were then carried out this weekend in the center of the city and the sensitive quarter [no-go zone] of Grésilles by members of this [Chechen] community, and the proprietor of a pizzeria was seriously wounded by gunfire.

After three nights of violence, on Monday evening, the police dispersed a group of hooded and visibly armed men wanting to defend their quarter against these intrusions. “I understand that the population has been traumatized by these events.” The people of Dijon have the “right to peace, tranquility and safety, “ insisted Laurent Nuñez, in making it understood that the investigation was in progress. “There are leads,” he assured his audience.

Monday evening the prefect of Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, Bernard Schmeltz, defended the police strategy of non-intervention over the course of the weekend to AFP [Agence France Presse]. “Supervise and surround to prevent abuses: that is the only practical strategy.” That did not prevent the outgoing Socialist mayor of Dijon, François Rebsamen, from denouncing the lack of police measures, faced with some 200 Chechens, armed with iron bars, baseball bats, and sometimes firearms.

“Since justice comes too late and since the police don’t have the means of action, the Chechen community came itself to enforce its right,” the mayor analyzed, campaigning for a fourth term.

Christian Jacob has written a letter to the prime minister

The president of the Republicans, Christian Jacob, wrote a letter on Tuesday to the prime minister to ask him to “reaffirm without ambiguity,” his support for the police and “to finally take strong measures in the face of the explosion of violence in several quarters.”

“These unbearable images, from Dijon to Nice, against a backdrop of deleterious community [conditions], show hooded individuals, carrying heavy weapons, spreading terror, and imposing their law, with great impunity,” states Mr. Jacob in this letter to Edouard Philippe, of which the AFP has obtained a copy.

At the hour when our country is going through an unprecedented crisis, we cannot add a climate mixing division with chaos,” he added, when the city of Dijon has been shaken by tensions against a backdrop of punitive expeditions since the weekend.

A shootout in a quarter of Nice plagued by drug trafficking caused three injuries in the night between Sunday and Monday, a few hours after other incidents with knives and guns. Mr. Jacob deplores the “silence” of the prime minister, which, according to him, “sounds like an admission of guilty impotence.” “You must reaffirm without ambiguity your full support for our police,” he adds.

Brussels Police Ordered Not to Defend the City Against BLM Rioters

During the BLM riots in Brussels the weekend before last, the municipal police failed to act in a timely manner against the rioters’ violence and destruction. According to one disgruntled police officer, this was because they had been ordered by their superiors to hold back.

Many thanks to FouseSquawk for translating this article from the Belgian daily La Libre:

A police officer says, “We were hit with rocks, but the order from the mayor to charge didn’t come”. Close reacts, “That’s ridiculous; that’s defamation.”

by Jonas Legge
June 8, 2020

The attack against the police, the looting of businesses, and the destruction of public property this Sunday, at the end of the Black Lives Matter protest in Brussels, has caused indignation, anger, but also incomprehension.

How to explain that the police did not intervene earlier? “It’s simple, we didn’t receive the order. We had to wait 1 hour and 30 minutes!” exclaims a police officer of the Brussels-Ixelles district, who wishes to remain anonymous.

“Before the demonstration, we had received the order to not implement controls. Then, when we were hit with rocks and we confirmed the material destruction, such as traffic lights and traffic signs, we could not act. However, there the means to intervene was already in place. In normal times, we would have charged, but the order did not come… We remained in a defensive position: one leg in front and the baton in hand,” our source relates. “Then they sent us to play hide-and-seek: That is, we received the order to proceed to a street, except the mayhem was happening a few blocks further away. The goal: To avoid confronting the demonstrators. I really don’t understand what was going on in the heads of our decision-makers at that moment, because we could have easily arrested the rioters.”

The decision-makers that our contact brings up, who are they? “The mayor of Brussels,” exclaims the police officer. “It is he who gave the instructions this Sunday, it’s he who supervised the operation from the crisis center with the area chief. Today, he says he reacted in time. But on the ground we had to wait 1 hour and 30 minutes after the first incidents before we could finally intervene. We felt abandoned. We were obliged to let it go when we were hit with every object that was in the hands of the ‘people destroying things’. Today, several colleagues are injured due to the paving stones they were hit with.”

Our source indicates that, like her colleagues, she expected the protest to end in mayhem. She nevertheless considers that there were enough police on the ground. “It’s just that the manner in which we were utilized is incomprehensible. Morally, it is hard to go through.”

Finally, this police officer deplores the fact that the residents and merchants of the quarter were themselves also neglected. “Imagine: They call the police and more than an hour later, the police are still not there. They don’t understand this absence of reaction, this abandonment.”

Strike notice

The police union SLFP has filed a notice of strike for the Brussels Capital-Ixelles police district, which was deployed to cover the protest that involved about 10,000 people. “We stated that the risk analysis for Sunday did not hold water. The tolerance thresholds concerning violence against the police were sufficiently determined,” reacted Vincent Houssin, president of the union.

“Yesterday, 28 cops were injured. We turn here to the administrative authorities, who hold an important obligation and should assume responsibility for the application of the law,” he adds. According to the union, the protest should never have been held.
