The Beheading Plot Thickens

In the last few days there has been interesting news about the beheading of a French schoolteacher by a Chechen mujahid last Friday. It seems that the schoolteacher, Samuel Paty, was reported to the police for distributing pornographic images after he showed a Charlie Hebdo cartoon of Mohammed to his middle-school class.

But it gets even more interesting: the girl who told her father what happened in class to wasn’t even present the day the Motoon was shown. She simply passed on rumors of the event, which she claimed to have witnessed.

The video below is a news report on the police interrogation of Samuel Paty. Many thanks to Oz-Rita and MissPiggy for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

The Postman Cometh

After severe tribulations, my email has been fixed. I can once again send messages from my mail client.

It’s been a hellish four days. If you sent me a message since Monday morning, and don’t get a reply before the end of today, please email me again — it may have got lost in all the backlog.

My feeling of relief right now reminds me of a Root Boy Slim lyric (from “I Used to be a Radical”): If it wasn’t for quick action by some freaky doctors, Root Boy Slim be long since dead.

Those freaky techies were a BIG help.

Gerald Grosz: “The Silence of the Stupid Lambs”

In recent months I’ve posted a number of video rants by Gerald Grosz, an Austrian politician for the BZÖ (Bündnis Zukunft Österreich, Alliance for the Future of Austria) and the FPÖ (Freiheitliche Partei Österreichs, Austrian Freedom Party). In his latest rant, Mr. Grosz compares the lack of reaction to the beheading of the French schoolteacher Samuel Paty to the worldwide media frenzy over the death of George Floyd.

Behold the Fundament of the Prophet!

The video below shows outraged reactions to the display of hundreds of Charlie Hebdo cartoons of Mohammed’s posterior in a public place in France. Someone — possibly a multitude of someones — went to a lot of trouble to blaspheme the Prophet and offend Muslims, in response to last week’s beheading of the schoolteacher Samuel Paty.

It’s Time to Stand up and Say STOP!

In the following video, a young Austrian policewoman named Birgit discusses the “pandemic”. She never mentions the Wuhan Coronavirus or COVID-19, or even masks and lockdowns. Yet it’s obvious that’s what she’s talking about — after all, what else “has been going on for the last seven months”?

Alice Weidel: The German Economy is Perishing!

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this op-ed from Politikstube:

Alice Weidel: The German economy is perishing!

Germany is on the cusp of a deep recession.

The signs of excessive unemployment, bankruptcies and the slump in GDP are already evident today.

The fairy tale issued by the federal government of the V-shaped economic recovery in the near future is being shattered by reality.

The so-called second Corona wave with its profound restrictions on public life and the smoldering lockdown subjects many economies in the Eurozone to a stress test that comes at an inopportune time.

After three lost quarters, many analysts have cut their growth expectations for the fourth quarter sharply within a month.

For the EU member states, only a 2% instead of a 3% recovery is expected by the end of December — for Germany the forecast is even lower, at a modest 1.5%. Every taxpayer in Germany will be presented with the invoice after the 2021 federal election.

The increased number of tests, even on symptom-free people, leads to a higher number of infections.

Just 851 (!) people are currently showing symptoms.

What kind of a pandemic is that supposed to be?

Instead of remaining in disaster mode, threatening the economy with a new lockdown, and forcing the entire population under the mask, even outdoors, the government must now make a 180-degree turn.

A call to the WHO is needed: They issued the update that COVID-19 is less dangerous than conventional flu.

The translator includes this afterword:

It looks to me that our respective governments around the world have been pushing the Corona Pandemic Lie already to such a degree that there won’t be any recovery for the little people until those responsible are taken down from their lofty pedestals, tried and [intemperate recommendation redacted] for crimes against humanity.

But that is just my humble opinion.

Islam, Marxism, Globalism, Covideanism… all those cults seek only power and the submission of people. The people themselves, the little people like you and me, are no more than the grist for their mill.

And I for one am sick and tired of it.

Thailand: It’s Shirt Time Again!

Our Bangkok correspondent H. Numan sends this update on the latest unrest in Thailand.

Thailand: it’s shirt time again!

by H. Numan

I’ve reported extensively about the red vs yellow shirt crises during last decade in Thailand. In the end the green shirts (army) won. At this moment we see the white shirts (students) battling it out with the brown shirts (police). Who will win is not clear, but I’m absolutely certain we are witnessing the beginning of what could become large-scale riots, if not something a good deal worse.

As usual, a bit of groundwork. What’s that with colors in Thailand? Well, you have to understand: Thailand is not a western country. It is one of the few Asian countries that was never colonized. Therefore it was able to keep its identity. In Thai culture colors have names, and every day of the week has its own color. The late king was born on Monday, which has the color yellow. In Thailand yellow is reserved for the king himself. All members of the royal family have their own personal color.

When people started to organize themselves into opposing camps under the Thaksin administration, royalists wore yellow shirts. They were mainly middle class citizens of Bangkok. Adherents to Thaksin started to wear red shirts. Not because they are communist. Communism is explicitly forbidden in Thailand. Red is the color of blood and of love for the country. Thaksin supporters (red shirts) were predominantly lower-class citizens outside Bangkok. In other words: a huge majority. Both the red and yellow shirts were monarchists. The monarchy was not an issue. That’s why you have the weird situation in which both parties were carrying large portraits of the late king Rama IX.

Those colors are important. When the late king Bumibhol left the hospital one day wearing a mint green jacket, I saw lot of people the next day wearing mint green shirts.

In the end, the green shirts won. They committed a coup d’état in 2014 and are still in control. Both the yellow shirt and red shirt leaders were arrested and put on trial. Both movements were disbanded. As usual they claimed no other solution was possible but a coup, and they would put things right and fight corruption. And, of course, as soon as possible democracy would be restored.

And, of course, that didn’t happen. This military government may not have been the most corrupt government in Thai history, but they sure tried. One nice juicy scandal involved the many watches of General Prawit Wongsuan. He was spotted wearing an expensive watch he hadn’t declared when he took office. Soon it was clear he had a collection of 24 watches. We’re talking top-of-the-line watches costing many thousands of dollars. Each watch is more worth than the annual salary of a general.

We do have a national anti-corruption commission — which is akin to Marlboro running anti-smoking campaigns. That NACC did its utmost best to keep Prawit out of the wind. After a lengthy investigation they accepted his excuse: those watches were from a friend, who sadly passed away. That friend had loaned him those 24 watches, and matching jewelry. He will return them to the next of kin, some day in the far future. He wears them today. As a badge of (dis)honor, even. After all, he, an honest hard-working underpaid officer, defeated the evil corrupt NACC.

Last year the military government announced they had re-written the constitution, would resign from office, and called for democratic elections. When Prayuth announced his candidacy for premier, I knew he was going to win. No Thai PM would ever announce his candidacy if he wasn’t 100% certain he was going to win. Which he did.

Were the elections rigged? Probably. A vote costs Bt. 500 ($16) each. Thai politics are not based on national parties, but on persons. For example, scumbag first class, I mean police captain Chalerm Yubamrung. Talk about every crime in the book, he will assure you he committed more. His youngest son Duangchalerm shot a police officer in a bar. He fled to Singapore. There the Thai ambassador personally escorted him home, where daddy had arranged a hero’s welcome for him on the airport, with thousands cheering the returning hero. He never had to see a judge, the court has ruled that the bribe was sufficient there was insufficient evidence for prosecution. Daddy was member of parliament and even vice-premier under the Yingluck administration. He supported the wrong team, and was arrested shortly after the coup. Now he is retired in comfort.

A Conspiracy to Behead

Here’s the latest update on the execution of the blasphemous infidel schoolteacher in Paris last Friday.

Many thanks to FouseSquawk for translating this article from Le Figaro:

The assassination of Samuel Paty: A parent of a pupil and the assailant exchanged messages before the attack

These exchanges are believed to have been on the message server, WhatsApp.

by Le Figaro and AFP
October 20, 2020

The pupil’s father who had called for a mobilization on social media against Samuel Paty, the professor assassinated on Friday 16 October near his school in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine (Yvelines), exchanged messages by telephone with the assailant in the days that preceded the attack, AFP learned Tuesday from a source close to the case.

These exchanges are believed to have taken place on the message server WhatsApp, added this inside source, confirming news from BFMTV, without giving specifics as to their content.

The father of the female pupil had given his telephone number on Facebook in a message accompanying a video disseminated 8 October, in which he called for mobilization against Samuel Paty after a course on the Mohammad cartoons, which, according to him, his daughter attended. The latter, who is in the 4th year, was, indeed, part of a class in which Samuel Paty gave a course on freedom of expression on 6 October, but she was absent that day according to a source close to the case.

On 12 October he had disseminated a new video on YouTube targeting the teacher, in which the militant Islamist Abdelhakim Sefrioui appeared with him. The two men were taken into custody Tuesday afternoon in this anti-terrorist investigation, along with 14 other persons, including five students.

Bodo Gets a Visit from the CoPo

Bodo Schiffmann is a German otorhinolaryngologist, and an outspoken critic of the wearing of masks in response to the Wuhan Coronavirus. In the following video Dr. Schiffmann’s birthday party in an event room of a restaurant is interrupted by a visit from the Corona police, who have received a report that the doctor and his guests have broken Corona regulations on masks and social distancing.

There is a wry joke about the DDR (“German Democratic Republic”) partway through the video. In the old East Germany the police (as opposed to the Stasi) were the Volkspolizei, commonly known as the VoPo. It seems appropriate to designate the mask-wearing uniformed drones in this video CoPo — it’s short, easy to remember, and has a nice resonance.

Email Problems Yet Again

I’m having a similar problem to the one I had three months ago: I can receive emails, but I can’t send them. I’ve spent hours on the phone with the hosting service trying to sort it out, but no luck so far.

If you’ve been sending emails, I probably got them, but couldn’t reply. I hope to resolve this tomorrow.

All this hassle has delayed other posts. I’ll be putting up the news feed, but nothing else tonight.
