The East is Dead

H. Numan, who is based in Bangkok, sends this report on the current socio-political crisis in China.

The East is Red Dead

by H. Numan

Football is a sport. Sometimes a deadly sport. I’m talking of course about what Americans call soccer and the rest of the world football. It even caused a war in 1969. Right now, it’s causing massive uprisings in China. Something nobody, least of all Chinese censors, could foresee. Likely with deadly consequences for the entire world.

Football is hugely popular in China. The Qatar World Championships are shown live on Chinese TV. The censors clearly forgot that TV cameras will show not just the players, but also the crowds. Who are sitting side by side, shoulder to shoulder, without wearing masks. Chinese citizens are not stupid. They probably heard stories about the West being no longer in lockdown. Now they see those ‘wild conspiratorial rumors’ confirmed. By their own government.

At the same time an unfortunate accident happened in Xinjiang. A building caught fire while the city was under lockdown. The residents were welded inside their building. Literally. Municipal workers welded the doors and the locks shut. That happens a lot during Chinese lockdowns. The people had no way to escape the fire, and firemen couldn’t enter the building. Ten people lost their lives.

The news of the fire combined with the championships made the population explode in anger. Ordinary Chinese citizens could see with their own eyes, on state TV, that the outside world was okay after Covid. All their suffering and hardship was, and is, in vain.

This is by far the biggest crisis the Chinese Communist Party has faced since Tiananmen Square in 1989. It may very well grow into something much bigger, because the Tiananmen Square riots were not widespread. Only some students revolted, and only in Beijing and a few other large cities. With, at that time, nearly a billion people, ‘some’ students does quickly add up. Also, nobody outside university campuses knew about Tiananmen Square. It could be controlled. The current riots are all over the country, by enraged ordinary citizens.

There is no formal cadre or leadership in this outburst. People have simply had enough. All over China riots are flaring up. So far, nothing that the police can’t handle. Demonstrating in China is highly illegal. Any gathering of more than a few people is closely watched, and often dispersed quickly by the authorities. Even if it is a ‘long live Xi Jinping!‘ demonstration. With extreme violence, if that becomes necessary. That’s the situation the authorities face right now. How to handle it? Difficult to say. Normally the riot police would be sent in. That probably would make things far worse, causing more and much bigger riots.

They could give in, and ease the Covid lockdown regulations. However, that will very quickly cause more problems. You see, China isn’t a superpower. It is a lower income country with a huge population, some nukes and a very bad public health system. Under the most oppressive regime since Mao.

Xi Jinping, the present chairman just got his tenure extended. He is effectively president-for-life. Technology gave him much more of a grip on society than was possible under Mao or even in the DDR. With much Western support, by means of Apple, Google, Facebook and Twitter, China was able to control its population to an extent few people in the West would think possible. Xi Jinping used it to build his own power base. Don’t believe a word of anti-corruption in China. It’s as hollow and meaningless as anti-corruption in Thailand. In Asia, notably China, corruption is endemic. Built into the system. Anti-corruption simply means replacing corrupt officials with your own cronies.

The Ingratitude of the Ungrateful

Migrants in Austria have taken to the street to protest the humiliating conditions they are forced to endure in their asylum accommodations.

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

“Inhumane”: Migrants are now demonstrating against their asylum quarters

The asylum situation in Austria has recently caused a lot of excitement. Because of the “inhumane asylum policy”, the migrants are now taking the floor themselves. A rally and a demonstration will take place in Innsbruck on Friday. [I’m pretty sure that this turned out “peaceful”]

After the asylum situation recently caused a stir, the migrants themselves took the floor in Innsbruck today. They call for a day of protest against the “inhumane asylum policy of Tyrol and Austria”, reports the Kurier.

A rally has been underway in front of the Federal Office for Immigration and Asylum since 1pm. In the evening hours (6pm) another demonstration is planned at the Anna Column in the city center. In addition to the “grueling asylum procedures”, the “inhumane accommodation” is also criticized.

Tents have “taken the situation to the extreme”

“The problem begins with mass accommodation or containers in which refugees live with several people in one room for years and thus have practically no privacy,” says an advertisement. This was “taken to extremes” when migrants were housed in tents all over Austria or “in makeshift halls such as in Kufstein, where more than thirty people sleep in one room.”

Afterword from the translator:

I somehow cannot imagine that these people stayed in 5-star hotels all the way into Europe on their “flight”? Can anyone? I rather doubt it.

I believe it was Elbert Hubbart who said something along these lines: “The ungrateful is one who has got something for nothing and wants more.” And that is exactly what these invaders are doing, demands after demands, as if they had been invited. As far as I remember, when my grandfather’s eldest brother had to flee the Nazi regime, at first into the Soviet Union and then from there to Canada, he never got anything for free — maybe a meal here and there or a lift — otherwise he had to foot the bill himself with casual work or the selling of his ever-shrinking valuables. No money for roof and food from the Russians or Canadians for a German refugee. And these people? They most likely want even their travel expenses paid back by the Austrian or German taxpayers. These people are all, by the looks of it, UNGRATEFUL and HATEFUL towards their “host”.

“Do the ungrateful no favors lest you make an enemy of them. The guilt of gratitude weighs heavily on him and makes him angry.” — Andreas Laskaratos (1811-1901)

Dutch Delight

Our Dutch correspondent H. Numan sends this summary of the multiple political dramas currently unfolding in the Netherlands.

Dutch delight

by H. Numan

What’s going on behind the dikes? A lot. Most of it pretty bad. Hansje Brinkers (PM Mark Rutte) is riding a bulldozer demolishing the dikes as best as he can. I’ve got a tiny bit of good news, and mostly bad news.

Let’s start with the good news. The PVV (Geert Wilders’ party) is on the rise. For almost a month the PVV has been polling as the largest party in the country. Supposing elections were called for today, a conservative cabinet is possible, with Geert Wilders as prime minister. That’s the first time ever, at least in a decade. However, it’s not that the PVV is suddenly running far ahead in the polls. Yes, they have gained some ground, ever so slowly. At this moment a one-seat advantage over the VVD (Conservatives). It’s the other way around. VVD and D66 poll consistently lower.

Still, it is good news. Because in March of next year we have provincial elections. It’s dead certain the coalition will lose their majority in the Senate because of that. Let me explain why. We Dutch have a weird electoral system. Yes, we elect parliament directly. But not the Senate. That is too difficult and delicate for ordinary yokels and bumpkins like you and me to cast the right vote. Our Senate therefore is elected by provincial parliamentarians, after the provincial elections. The provincial elections (almost always as interesting as watching paint dry) will be in March of 2023. After March, we’ll see a reversed situation, compared with America: a cabinet majority in Parliament and a cabinet minority in the Senate. Supposing the cabinet hasn’t resigned before that, and there is good reason to look forward to national elections.

First of all, Mark Rutte, our prime minister got what he wanted. He’s the longest-ruling prime minister in Dutch history. The price he has to pay for it is small. After the next elections his party will be decimated. Which is not his problem. He’ll slither into a nice comfy job somewhere else. During an interview he explained how he went into politics: after his studies, he had to choose between joining the conservatives or the labor party. He thought he had better chances with the conservatives, so he joined them. Not exactly a man with principles. Probably good in business, but in politics, some principles are required. After 12 years, it’s showing.

Mark Rutte doesn’t rule this cabinet. His heart (or stone) isn’t into it anymore. Vice premier Sigrid Al-Qaq — Kaag is the real power behind the cabinet. She rules with an iron rod. She is quite popular within her party, but not with the electorate. D66 is dropping like a stone in the polls. Why? Because D66 — together with all other progressive parties — don’t remember 1792. She literally said we have to work harder, longer, for less pay and retirement later on. But her climate goals are sacred. D66 actually want to spend a lot less on people and much more on climate goals and refugees. Currently +100,000 very questionable refugees are expected for this year alone. There already was a housing crisis. Progressive parties have the gumption to openly say: we give refugees preference in social housing. They get social housing immediately. Ordinary Dutch have to wait twelve years. That’s what caused the French Revolution. The elites partied on, wanted more parties, and made the people bleed for it.

We are blessed with a benevolent king, his majesty William-Alexander. Who has the intellect of a common garden snail and matching empathy. His wife, the queen-consort, is a different story. She could have been the example for Megan Markle. She has as much empathy as her prey husband, but is ruthlessly ambitious. In Holland we have a constitutional monarchy. That means that king is required to keep his trap firmly shut. Given his preponderance for gaffes, he’d better. His consort don’t quite understand that principle. She very openly took a position in favor of a cashless society. That’s an absolute no-no. In fact, parliament can order her to apologize for it. If they have to guts to go that far, that is. See it like this: if my tap leaks, I call a plumber. What I don’t want is the CEO of the plumbing company giving his opinion about my house. Even less so if his wife starts to give her even more unwanted opinions. How this will play out, we’ll have to wait and see.

The Shock Troops of the Great Replacement

The following video report from Germany is the clearest evidence to date that migrant invasion is more than just a rag-tag bunch of impoverished third-worlders seeking to escape oppression, and more than just economic migrants hoping for a better life. It’s a deliberately-organized invasion of armed young men.

The orders given to the border police to hold off from interdicting the arms suppliers come from somewhere further up the chain of command. Why are such orders being issued? In order to answer that question we would have to figure out the answer to an additional question: Cui bono?

What we are seeing now is the execution of a carefully-crafted plan. I’m not privy to enough intelligence information to specify who the planners are, nor exactly what final outcome they intend. But the dénouement which will soon be arriving in Europe — and in the United States, in a slightly different form — is clearly a deliberate action.

As Fjordman said more than a decade ago: “This is the greatest organized betrayal in Western history.”

Afterword from the translator:

It’s utterly insane what is happening in Germany and the West in general.

What do these globalist puppeticians hope to achieve with this? Are they so full of themselves that they believe they are indispensable or even immortal? Haven’t they learned from history that a rabid mob of hostiles let loose on one’s own population isn’t going to stop at the gates of their own homes? No matter how much security they have?

Just look what happened to Gordon at Khartoum.

Halloween in Vienna: Firearms and “Allahu Akhbar”

As a follow-up to Tuesday’s post about the Halloween antics of migrants in Austria and Germany, here’s a report about culture-enriching gunfire in Vienna on All Hallows’ Eve. The article includes a video of a culture-enricher screaming “Allahu Akhbar” and firing off gunshots. According to Hellequin GB, he also shouts “F*** you, f*** you sons of whores!”

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from Heute:

“Allahu Akhbar” Man shoots gun off in Vienna

On Halloween, rioters left a trail of devastation in Vienna. Along with illegal fireworks, a gun was also fired into the air.

Scenes of fear and terror. In Linz, serious riots occurred on Monday evening; also in Vienna, young men caused numerous police and WEGA [Special Operations Unit] operations. In Floridsdorf, garbage containers and telephone booths were blown up, while in the Sonnwend quarter, firecrackers were thrown into crowds of people and caused panic, and numerous residents reported hearing gunshots. The police could not, however, confirm this on Tuesday.

Shots and cries of “Allahu Akhbar”

Now a video has surfaced that provides the sad evidence for the escalation on the evening in question. A band of youths moves completely unhindered and screaming in the Sonnwend quarter near the Vienna Central Train Station. A young man walks with a gun in his hand along the street, screaming, “Allahu Akhbar” [God is Greater in Arabic] and fires several times into the air.

“Scenes like in war”

“There were scenes like in war,” recounts one witness of Halloween night in Favoriten [Vienna district] that obviously completely escalated. Concerned residents alerted police the same evening — a WEGA operation was the result. However, nobody was cited because the suspects fled in all directions when they heard the sirens. According to State Police in Vienna, nobody was injured in the incidents. Shell cases were initially not found. A resident of the surrounding houses collected them at daybreak, however, and turned them over to the police.

Culture-Enriching Trick-or-Treat in Austria and Germany

Fun-loving “youths” in Austria and Germany had a hot time last night celebrating Halloween in their traditional fashion — rioting and throwing bottles and firecrackers at police and passersby.

The two articles below report on the All Hallows’ festivities. Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from the Austrian outlet Heimat-Kurier. The translator’s comments are in square brackets:

Halloween: Migrant riots throughout Austria and Germany

Not only in Linz, but in numerous other Austrian and German cities, there were riots by migrants last night. We document and summarize the processes.

Migrant groups band together, throw firecrackers, fire blank guns and attack passers-by. Then they deliver hour-long street battles and chases with the approaching police. These frightening scenes took place last night not only in Linz, but in numerous other cities in Germany and Austria.

Austria: Linz as a hotspot

According to the current state of knowledge, Linz was the most violent place. As reported, up to 200 migrants ganged up in the city center and threw firecrackers at passers-by. Then there was a real street fight with the police, two police officers were injured. The Krone already has information on the 130 people whose identities were determined by the police: “50% foreigners, 20% naturalized migrants and 30% Austrians or from other EU countries.”

Firecracker riots in Vienna, Salzburg and Klagenfurt

There were also firecracker riots by migrants in other cities. A video from Vienna shows corresponding scenes in the migrant district of Favoriten. In the Floridsdorf district, a group of young people blew up several garbage containers and telephone booths. In Salzburg , two groups — consisting of “numerous aggressive young people” — threw firecrackers into the crowd and triggered a large-scale operation. According to residents, it took almost an hour for the police to intervene. In Klagenfurt, 20 masked youths rioted in front of a family home because they were refused sweets. The father of the family was threatened with a knife, and stones and bottles were thrown at the property.

Riots in German cities

In Germany, too, hordes of migrants used the opportunity for riots and violence. In Hamburg and Berlin in particular, there were outright “hunting scenes” and attacks on the police, as Bild reports. In both cases, the emergency services reported unanimously that “adolescents” and “young adults” were the perpetrators. A police spokeswoman said that in recent years the “scale of such riots has increased”. [I wonder why?]

Netflix movie as inspiration?

Numerous videos of the riot scenes with reference to the Netflix film “Athena” are currently circulating on Snapchat and TikTok. For example, a user writes: “Linz = Athena” or “Linz has become Athena”. In the film, young migrants from the banlieues hijack police stations and turn their neighborhood into a fortress. It’s little wonder that the rioters like this film and, with its morally accusatory undertone, also serves as legitimacy for their actions. [First sue Netflix and then get rid of it and other such rubbish producers.]

Population replacement as root cause

Why such incidents continue to increase can be explained above all by looking at the population statistics and asylum numbers. Due to the progressive influx of migrants, the targeted riots and violence by this clientele is increasing. No symptomatic treatment will help against further escalation — as is now being demanded by numerous politicians — but only a consistent fight against population replacement through closed borders and remigration. [And incentives for the native population to make babies, instead of penalizing them. But what do I know?]

Culture-Enriching Stabbing at the Central Station

The following police video from the Netherlands doesn’t mention the ethnicity of the two men who attacked and stabbed a man at the Central Station. However, the surveillance video footage released by the police shows the clear unpixelated features of the two suspected assailants, and they are plainly culture-enrichers.

If this had been Sweden, not only would their faces have been pixelated, but they would have been “pinkwashed” — that is, they would have had their features artificially Caucasianized by digital means. In contrast, the Dutch police seem truly interested in apprehending the alleged perpetrators.

Knife Jihad on the Bus in Dresden

A Soldier of Allah in the German city of Dresden didn’t want to pay for a bus ticket, and reacted as might be expected when confronted by a ticket inspector.

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

Ticket inspector (34) stabbed at bus stop

Dresden

Brutal attack on a ticket inspector (34) in Dresden!

A 23-year-old Syrian man is said to have stabbed a man with a knife on Sunday afternoon after he was removed from a bus for not having a ticket. According to information made available to Bild, the suspect initially left the “Alter Postweg” stop on Joseph-Keilberth-Strasse after being thrown out, but then returned on a bicycle and stabbed a tire on the bus.

When the inspector caught the man and confronted him, he reportedly went berserk and rammed a knife in the mans stomach! The Syrian fled on his bike after the bloody crime, but was arrested a little while later.

The police are still keeping a low profile due to the ongoing investigation. “Emergency personnel found a man seriously injured at the bus stop. He was immediately taken to a hospital,” a spokesman said.

The investigators cordoned off the area around the bus stop and secured the evidence of the crime scene, also of the flat tire of the bus and the bike of the alleged perpetrator. The police and public prosecutor are currently investigating the suspicion of an attempted homicide. [Suspicion? How much clearer can it get? This was definitely NO whittling accident.]

Score One For the Prophet

The Dutch chapter of the anti-Islam group Pegida tried to stage a Koran-burning in Rotterdam, but failed miserably. I suppose they lack the trademark panache exhibited by Rasmus Paludan in Denmark. Or maybe there just isn’t enough popular support for resisting the Islamization of the Netherlands.

The Pegida leader Edwin Wagensveld was arrested at the event, and the Koran that was slated for burning was seized by police. I hope they wore gloves and exhibited the requisite respect when they handled the holy book, the way the guards at Guantanamo did when bringing Korans to Al Qaeda prisoners.

The following video and article report on the Pegida protest, and the much more numerous counter-protesters. In the photo at the top of this post, it’s worth noting that in addition to the clenched fists and Turkish flags, we see the one-finger sign of the Salafists, which represents the tawhid, the oneness of Allah.

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

The article below (also translated by Gary Fouse) about the Pegida event appeared on the website of the Dutch state broadcaster NOS:

Brief unrest in Rotterdam at Pegida action and counter-protest

There was a short period of unrest near the Rotterdam Central Train Station today. The reason was a scheduled Koran-burning by the anti-Islam movement Pegida, which attracted hundreds of counter-demonstrators.

Pegida was to start demonstrating at 2pm at the station square, and there was a plan to burn a Koran. However, it did not happen: The police seized the Koran from Pegida leader Edwin Wagensveld in order “to prevent escalation, and thus serious disorder.” Wagensveld was arrested because, according to police, he shouted “an insulting slogan”. Other than Wagensveld, there were very few Pegida followers, said a police spokesperson.

The counter-protesters, mostly young Muslims, burst into cheers. The mobile police unit was deployed to contain the group of youths. They often shouted “Allahu Akhbar” and, according to the regional news outlet Rijnmond, threw eggs and smoke bombs at police.

Previously, various parties had objected to the burning event. For example, the Muslim umbrella organization Spior sent in a notice of objection, and the political fraction Denk [the Turkish party] requested an emergency debate. Deputy Mayor Robert Simons subsequently wrote in a letter to the city council that it was forbidden to light a fire in public space, and that therefore the Koran-burning could not go forward.

Pegida leader Edwin Wagensveld is arrested for “insulting the faith”.

Somali Knife Jihadi Was From the Class of 2015

On Wednesday I reported about a Somali culture-enricher who went on a stabbing rampage in the German city of Ludwigshafen, killing two people.

It turns out that the young miscreant was one of those engineers, doctors, and symbolic analysts welcomed into the country by Angela Merkel during the Great Migration Crisis of 2015.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from Junge Freiheit:

Somali knife killer arrived in 2015 as an asylum seeker

Ludwigshafen

The Somali knifeman from Ludwigshafen came to Germany as an illegal immigrant in 2015. He was then recognized as a refugee and was already known to the police for causing bodily harm, reports the Bild newspaper.

Meanwhile, shocking new details about the attack continue to emerge. The father of the 20-year-old victim apparently had to watch as his son died, bleeding, before his eyes. “I’ve never seen anyone cry so bitterly,” a witness told the newspaper.

AfD: One in five Somalis is a suspect

According to the police, the Somali used a 30 centimeter knife to massacre his victims. “Several witnesses reported that the assailant shouted ‘Allahu Akhbar’, among other slogans, during the attack. As a result, extensive investigations into the motive and background are being carried out,” said the police and public prosecutor. Nevertheless, there is no evidence of an Islamist or terrorist background.

According to the AfD, there has been a massive crime problem with Somalis in Rhineland-Palatinate for a long time. “Several inquiries from our parliamentary group have shown that immigrants are way overrepresented in the police crime statistics, especially in the case of knife attacks, other violent crimes and sexual offenses, in comparison with the local population,” said Jan Bollinger, spokesman for domestic affairs for the AfD parliamentary group in Rhineland-Palatinate.

“Particularly striking are Somali, Afghan and Syrian citizens, who are pouring into our country again in large numbers right now,” emphasized the AfD politician. Statistically, about one in five male Somalis is a suspect in at least one crime in the state. Bollinger called for an immediate end to illegal migration to Germany.

Afterword from the translator:

They can’t do anything? Because he is now a “recognized” refugee? What crap is that? Is that automatically a “carte blanche” that they can do whatever they want? If you can’t behave yourself you shouldn’t have the right to stay. Pretty simple, in my book, and off in the next plane back to where these bastards came from. And if I had a say, it would be the long drop on the end of a short rope.

The Silent War Against the Germans

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from the news portal Ansage.org:

The Silent War Against the Germans

It happened again: a Somali immigrant randomly stabbed young Germans. This time the victims were young men who were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Again, attempts will be made not to give the victims a face. It is the wrong victims that our Federal President Steinmeier is reluctant to commemorate, because he cannot indulge in his eternal cult of guilt and hold up the mirror to the majority of society that they have failed again. Last year in Würzburg the victims were German women; in Dresden they were homosexuals. The perpetrators were always said to be in an “exceptional psychological situation” and then everything quickly returned to business as usual. It will be the same again in Ludwigshafen.

And how does it continue? The next attack will not be long in coming. NRW [North Rhine-Westphalia] Interior Minister Herbert Reul (CDU) announced in August that in the first half of 2022 alone, no fewer than 7,131 “crimes involving stabbing weapons” were recorded — in this one federal state alone. That corresponds to thirteen attacks per day — not counting a considerable number of unreported cases. This trend will continue to increase with ongoing and currently exploding illegal immigration. It is only the most spectacular cases that make it into the mainstream media for a short time.

Concealed Facts

On the other hand, one can read every day everywhere in Germany, at least in the local media, about rape, serious physical injury and murder of those who “have been living here for a long time” by men who came to Germany supposedly “seeking protection” — these almost always belong to the Islamic culture. This is a fact that is either hushed up or put into perspective — and anyone who dares to state it openly is denounced as “Islamophobic” (the Islamists’ combat term), “right-wing” and “Nazi”, or more appropriately, accused as “servant” of certain “narratives”. No other people in the world deny crimes against their own citizens in a way comparable to the Germans.

Since Maria from Freiburg, Mia from Kandel and Susanne from Wiesbaden, hundreds if not thousands of victims have been added who rarely make it into the national press as so-called “individual cases”. They are women, homosexuals and also men: people who became accidental victims because so-called “refuge seekers”, who were able to get into Germany unchecked and unhindered, had destroyed their lives and those of their families. Merkel’s legacy is only just beginning to take effect.

Deafening silence

And those in politics? The silence is deafening. On the contrary, with the basic income one creates the next incentive to immigrate to the German social system. People are taken indiscriminately from Afghanistan, and countries like Greece and Italy also want to relieve the burden of “refugees” — as if the majority of them wouldn’t end up in Germany within a short time anyway. Those in government at the federal, state and local level believe that currying favor with Islamic values would soften the immigrants. In doing so, they criminally fail to recognize that many of them have not the slightest interest in the values that made our society the successful, peaceful and free country that Germany became after 1949 and that have distinguished us for decades.

On the contrary; they often reject them deeply, and every step back we take is understood not as a gesture of friendship but of weakness. Like the unlawful approval of the muezzin call, which is now calling out to everyone in the cathedral city of Cologne that there is “no god but Allah”. Ultimately, this is an order to all Muslims to spread their own faith among the so-called unbelievers — in extreme cases, in accordance with the Quran, even through violence.

Sweden Throws the Book at Koran Rioters

As reported here last spring, culture-enrichers in Sweden reacted with mob violence on Easter weekend when Rasmus Paludan, the founder and leader of the Stram Kurs (Hard Line) party in Denmark and Sweden, offended their sensibilities by burning a Koran. The worst riot was in the city of Norrköping.

Some of the ringleaders of the riots have now been sentenced to up to six years in prison for their roles in the unrest, which is a pretty stiff sentence by Swedish standards.

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from Fria Tider:

Koran rioters get six years in prison

October 11, 2022

Three more Muslims have now been sentenced to prison for their involvement in Koran riots in the neighborhood of Navestad in Norrköping last spring.

The three men were sentenced for aggravated sabotage to emergency services, and one of them was also sentenced for aggravated violence against service personnel and attempted aggravated assault. One man in his twenties was sentenced for aggravated assault.

Two of the Muslims have been sentenced to six years in prison and the third to five years and six months in prison.

They will also pay a combined fine totaling 280,000 kronor.

For previous posts about Rasmus Paludan and the burning of Korans, see the Rasmus Paludan Archives.

Wintry Outlook

The German authorities are preparing for civil unrest in the coming winter. What’s interesting about this report is the role that the extreme Left is expected to play in the disturbances. The proximate cause of the crisis is an extreme shortage of natural gas due to the sanctions against Russia, which means that the climate-change zealots will be poised to raise trouble if more coal plants are fired up to try to cope with the dearth of electric power, or other uses of fossil fuel are proposed as a way to mitigate the crisis. That must not be allowed, no matter how many people freeze or starve, because we must save the planet!

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from Die Welt:

BKA apparently sees a growing threat to internal security

If people see their existence threatened, things could get tricky in the next few weeks: according to a media report, the Federal Criminal Police Office is preparing for possible protests, blockades and attacks.

The Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) sees increasing dangers for internal security in Germany in the coming weeks due to the energy crisis and high inflation, according to a report by the Tagesspiegel.

A similar situation to the protests against Corona measures since the beginning of the pandemic may be expected “if a significant proportion of the population feels it is or actually gets into an existential situation as a result of political decisions,” says an internal BKA memo, from which they quoted from the Tagesspiegel.

The Federal Criminal Police Office has also registered attempts by Islamists to take advantage of the current crisis situation. Attacks on the “economic infrastructure” were called for. A spokesman for the Islamic State jihadist militia called for the use of Russia’s war against Ukraine and the unstable political situation in Europe to their advantage, the Tagesspiegel quotes, citing the BKA.

Demonstrations and criminal offenses such as those seen in the Corona protests of recent years are also expected. In addition, there could be occupations and blockades of companies in the energy and armaments industry by the leftist scene.

Criminal offenses against politicians and decision-makers are to be feared from right-wing extremists and Corona skeptics, as well as “violent forms of action” from Corona critics.

A renewed tightening of the Corona measures could also drive parts of the civil-democratic spectrum into the arms of the milieu of the Corona protests, the BKA writes according to the Tagesspiegel.

Afterword from the translator:

I’m afraid to say it, but this has all been planned for some time, and the German government is working towards this. Then the demonstrators are driven apart by the police and possibly the Bundeswehr. And this with brute force. Will the order to shoot then follow? I wouldn’t put it past this government.

The Red-Green Fusion

The increasingly kinetic actions of militant German climate-protection groups are reminiscent of those of the violent leftist and communist revolutionaries of the 1970s. It seems the ideal of socialist revolution has been superseded by the imperative to impose draconian restrictions on the population in order to save the planet.

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

Note: “RAF” in this context stands for the Red Army Faction (a.k.a. the Baader-Meinhof Gang, a violent communist organization from the 1970s), and not the Royal Air Force:

Will Germany soon be threatened by the “Climate RAF”?

While Ms. [Interior Minister Nancy] Faeser can only look to the right due to her ideologically-induced stiff neck, highly dangerous, violent and criminal structures are developing to her left (if that is still possible), which may shake Germany to its very foundations:

The extremism researcher Alexander Straßner warns against the radicalization of climate activists with a view to the recent blockades of roads and coal-fired power plants. “That reminds me strikingly of the first RAF members who went underground,” said the political scientist of the Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung. Like the Climate activists today, they were convinced: “We have to force anyone who doesn’t go along with us.”

Straßner said that the movement bears some traits of a sect and claims absolute truth. “The activists claim to speak for an entire generation. They systematically discriminate against other opinions, and that too is a sign of radicalization.”

The Red Army Faction showed precisely these lines of argument, said Straßner, who teaches at the University of Regensburg. He is particularly critical of groups such as “Last Generation”, “Ende Gelände” and “Extinction Rebellion”. “They refuse to take the parliamentary route and claim that there is not enough time.” [Obviously, because they believe that their time on the feeding frenzy trough is NOW.]

However, these groups still lack a figurehead that stands for militancy. Straßner nevertheless assumes further radicalization: “Extremists are romping about on the fringes, for whom new Climate Policy measures are not enough. For them there are no compromises, only their own demands.”
