22 killed, many 70 injured in Pakistan mosque explosion. Taliban claim responsibility.



Mainstream media tell us, in reporting which is of dubious quality to say the least, that the war is won in Syria, there is only mopping up left to do in Iraq and once again the western powers are firmly in control, while fighting still rages in Syria and Iraq, Kurdistan and yemen, a new trouble spot is igniting in the Muslim world.

At least 22 people were reportedly killed after an attack by a suicide bomber targeted a Shi'ite mosque in northwestern Pakistan. Dozens were injured in the blast, which has been claimed by the Sunni Muslim paramilitary group, The Taliban.

The attack took place in the city of Parachinar as people gathered for Friday prayers near the women's entrance of a Shiite mosque in the central bazaar, according to Reuters.

Local official Ikramullah Khan said at least 22 people were killed and 70 others injured. A medical source cited by AFP put the number of injured at 57, including women and children.

Parachinar parliamentarian Sajid Hussain, cited by Reuters, described the blast as a suicide attack, noting that gunfire preceded the explosion. A military rescue helicopter has been sent to the scene to help evacuate the injured, according to local authorities.

The nearby Agency Headquarters Hospital said it received dozens of injured seeking treatment, and made an appeal for blood donors. "Patients are being brought to us in private cars and ambulances and we have received over three dozen patients so far,” Mumtaz Hussain, a doctor at the hospital, told Reuters.

Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has condemned the attack, vowing that the government will continue efforts to “eliminate the menace of terrorism.”

Jamaat-ul-Ahrar (JuA), a faction of the Pakistani Taliban, claimed the attack in a message sent to AFP.

Parachinar is the capital of Kurram tribal region, a hotbed of the Pakistani security forces’ years-long battle against various militant groups. At least 21 people were killed there in a January vegetable market explosion.

US is like ‘armed robber breaking into your house’ – Iranian Government Official

 
 
Iran’s defense secretary, Hossein Dehqan, has warned the US navy it should leave the Persian Gulf and stop provoking Iran and its allies, Iranian media report. The Minister was responding to a US general who accused Iran of being a destabilizing force in the region. As we have reported previously the main destabilising force in the region is Saudi Arabia, Iran's traditional enemy.
 
“What are American military doing in the Persian Gulf? They had better get out of this region and not cause trouble for the countries in the region,” Dehqan said in a statement carried by Iranian state media on Thursday.

 He also compared the United States to a house burglar.

“Is it acceptable for an armed robber to enter your house and expect to get the red carpet treatment?
“This is an example of modern ignorance in the 21st century,” he said.

Dehqan’s was responding to remarks made earlier in March by United States Central Command General Joseph Votel, who accused Iran of being a destabilizing influence in the region.

“We are also dealing with a range of malign activities perpetrated by Iran and its proxies operating in the region,” Votel said at a hearing before the Senate Armed Services Committee in describing Tehran’s alleged influence over Iraq and Syria.

Such statements from military officials on both sides signal growing tensions between Iran and the United States.

Musk Now Leading Contender For Misanthropic Megalomaniac Of The Millenium Title



Elon Musk's latest business misadventure is a company that aims to merge the human brain with computer networks. At best it will be an ignominious failure, at worst it will create a species of humandroids (Image source)

There's no doubt about it, Silicon Valley billionaires are the sickest, most inhuman bunch of shits on the planet. There's Googles semi - autistic twins Page and Brin who are developing software to control our minds, Bill Gates who wants to reduce the human population by 15% (for starters)and forcibly sterilise people through vaccination (Gates is not clear how that will work) in order to 'save the planet'. Zuckerberg wants to rule the world through Facebook and those guys at Apple, having proved that using slave labour is good business are working to spread the idea.

The sickest, control freakiest and probably the most deluded however is Elon Musk. This weirdo (he even looks weird - hell he even looks weird by the standards of Silicon Valley nerds). With his failing car company Tesla eating cash faster than a Great White Shark eats seals, his whacko plan to provide standby power for houses from a small, unobtrusive battery pack proving capable for powering the average home for a hour, his plan to provide backup power for the entire Australian state of South Australia was laughed at when the costs were found to be many times that of conventional power.

Elon's first big fuck up came when he invested in Halcyon Molecular Inc. which was a DNA-sequencing startup founded in 2008. Their goal was to unlock the biggest secrets hidden in DNA. The company wanted to sequence 100% of the human genome in less than 10 minutes for less than $100. Due to the many competing companies with the fastest and cheapest DNA sequencing technologies, and the commecially exploitable information in DNA falling way short of expectations, the company shut its doors in 2012.

Musk, like one of those cartoon characters whose tragedy is a total lack of self awareness, will keep pursuing impossible goals obessesed with the belief that the impossible is possible if you just throw enough science at it. His SpaceX vacations in space project using vehicles that, in common with SkyLab and the Space Shuttles will not actually be in space but in the thermosphere, the fourth layer of the atmosphere. Outside that is the exosphere, which must be negotiated before a space ship can honestly claim to be in space looks like being another expensive failure as Musk and his British rival to be the first space tourism billionaire discover there are problems related to putting humans in the outer layers of the atmosphere that NASA and the Russian Space Agency do not talk about.

Musk's craziest and sickest project to date however is his launch of a business that plans to develop devices that can be implanted in the human brain. After venturing into space exploration, electric cars and solar roofing, wannabe business magnate and visionary Musk (he is in fact an investor who made one very good investment and several which stink) wants to create gadgets that can link the human brain to computers so that AI and the brain can work hand in hand. The new company Neuralink Corp, launched this week is, according to the pitch for investment, the first step to realizing Musk’s desire to merge the human brain and computers.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the SpaceX and Tesla CEO’s new venture aims to produce devices that can be implanted to the human brain in order for artificial intelligence software to enhance brain activity, improving memory and allowing for a more direct interaction between the brain and electronic devices.

It has been reported thatMusk is assuming an “active role” in backing the neuroscience startup. Neuralink is registered as a medical research company in California with several high profile academics in the neuroscience field as members of its team.

Musk’s venture may not come as a surprise to people who follow the South African-born engineer as he progresses up the creepiness index to a position from which he can challenge Google's Dr. Evil wannabes. He has hinted several times that he plans to create a technology that could build a connection between the human brain and computers, as The Verge reports.

“Over time I think we will probably see a closer merger of biological intelligence and digital intelligence,” Musk recently said while speaking to a crowd in Dubai. “It’s mostly about the bandwidth, the speed of the connection between your brain and the digital version of yourself, particularly output.” It's worth remembering that a recent experiment concluded a computer would need several hours to process one minute of brain activity. And then there is the small problem that we have absolutely no idea how to convert computer data into the electrical pulses the brain fires along neurons in a way that would be meaningful to the brain. And until we have cracked that we are stuck with language, numbers and Boolean logic. So Musk's latest scheme is just another whacko non starter.

Last year, Musk also presented the idea of a neural lace, a device that would be surgically implanted to a human brain to allow connection between the nervous organ with computers. He has since been updating his followers on Twitter about the progress he’s been making with this project. In late January, when someone asked Musk if he is already set to announce neural lace to the public, he briefly responded, “Maybe next month.” But it appears Musk wasn’t ready to deliver the news to the world in February and with only hours remaining in March at the time of writing we have again heard nothing. One could be forgiven for thinking the idea is going the way of Google Glass. Now that the California startup is official, however, Musk will be able to share more information on the lack of development on his project to turn people into humandroids.

Wikileaks Reveal Obama Was Working For Saudis From Day 1

http://openmagazines.com/wikileaks-reveal-obama-agent-saudi-arabia/


The juiciest but most unsurprising (to many of us) discovery of the WikiLeaks dumps so far has not come from e-documents relating to the various Hillary Clinton / Democratic Party / Pizzagate scandals, though there have been many great ones, but from 2008 when the now notorious John Podesta served as co-chair of President-elect Barack Obama’s transition team. The email came from Michael Froman, a former Citibank executive, who secretly, and single-handedly (it appears,) built the entire Obama Administration of insiders, cronies and Saudi Arabia conntected business and academic types for the man who promised his would be the most open adminitration ever cabinet of what was supposed to be the "main street" President.

The email in question was even sent from Froman's Citibank email address (another effing amateur working for the Democrats) and includes "A list of African American, Latino and Asian American operatives, broken down by Cabinet/Deputy and Under/Assistant/Deputy Assistant level, plus a list of Native American, Arab/Muslim American and Disabled American candidates."

Apparently Obama wasn't as keen on placing women in senior-level positions (I think we all understand why Barry was not interested in filling his cabinet with women - if you catch my drift possums.) but Froman decided to offer up some suggestions anyway.

He wrote to the cocksucker president, "While you did not ask for this, I prepared and attached a similar document on women."
Froman even went ahead and "scoped out" which people should be appointed to which cabinet positions.

See the full listing at the bottom of this post at Open Magazines

Swedish Man Prosecuted for Assaulting Muslims with Bacon

28 March, 2017
A Swedish man has been arrested and charged with racism after being accused of eating bacon in proximity to a group of veiled Muslim women, and of calling them derogatory names.

The alleged offence occurred  in the Swedish capital of Stockholm last weekend. The Swede, who has not been named by media or the police, is said to have approached the women, who were identifiable as Muslims by the  Islamic headgear they were wearing, on a train while he was eating a bacon sandwich. He is alleged to have dangled the bacon in front of their faces, Swedish broadcaster SVT reports.

According to the report, the women moved to different seats but the bacon waving man followed. He is alleged to have called them derogatory names and made racist comments. Neither the police nor the public prosecutor has specified what was said during the incident.

The prosecutors allege he then used racial epithets on another woman in the train station after getting off the train. He faces charges of incitement to racial hatred.

Reaction to the incident on social media has been a mix of laughter and disbelief among English language users. Twitter user PeterSweden tweeted his disbelief at the charges saying: “What’s the next step, being racist for walking your dog?”

Dog are of course considered unclean animals by Islam and therefore are offensive to Muslims.

Canada Ruled By Politically Correct Stupidity?

We have long believed that the right place for Canadian women is barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen. Only joking - we really believe Canadian men should be barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen too. Canadians have a lot in common with American liberals, for a start both breeds are irritatingly worthy and incredibly mooey (if you don't know what that means just think of a field full of cows, in an orgy of bovine docility standing around chewing the cud, farting and going moo all day.)

Where cattle and liberals and Canadians diverge however, according to the actions of their governments,  is cows can turn quite nasty if you threaten their young. Canadians and liberals are so afraid of upsetting anybody they make excuses for people of certain nationalities and religions who want to harm or sexually assault their young, they tell those of us with children or grandchildren we must learn to integrate with the quaint customs of Muslim migrants, like gang raping young children.

But it is not just politically - correctitis that cocksucker Trudeau and The Canadian government suffers from. Another problem for them is bad timing.

On Thursday, March 23, the Canadian Parliament passed a  blasphemy law specifically designed to protect Islam, which is unprecedented in Western democracies, where free speech is a right and freedom of worship includes the right to criticise and even mock all religions.

Al-Jazeera reported on Friday, the previous day's vote condemned "Islamophobia and all forms of systemic racism and religious discrimination." Naturally neither the Canadian government nor the media organisations which reported it could provide a coherent definition of what actually contitutes 'Islamophobia'. The non-binding motion that the Parliament passed also requested that a Parliamentary committee should launch a study to look at how to "develop a whole-of-government approach to reducing or eliminating systemic racism and religious discrimination, including Islamophobia". The motion passed by 201 votes to 91.
It is just as well for those 201 Canadian legislators that they were debating all this in their distinguished national Parliament rather than the mother of all Parliaments. For had these legislators been in the House of Commons in Westminster, their thoughts may have taken on a sharper focus.

Now this blog's contributors who have spent time in Canada feel the place is so maddeningly reasonable there was hardly any religious discrimination until Sunni Muslim extremists from middle eastern and African trouble spots started to flood in, accompanied by the kind of corruption, racism, bigotry and violence that make middle eastern and African trouble spots the lawless shit holes they are.  

Only one day before the snivelling, self righteous virtue signallers of the Canadian parliament invited Islamic extremists to shaft their country up the arse , the British House of Commons lived through an example of rampant Islamism rather than "Islamophobia". And though the incident turn Members of Parliament into a crazy Muslim-hating bigot, they did manage to acknowledge that Islamic extremism can turn people into hateful, murderous Muslim bigots who want to kill Christians, Jews, Atheists and most of all people who are the wrong sort of muslim. And they acknowledged that such extremism and bigotry can turn people into very dangerous lunatics when they are armed with the simple weapons of a knife and a motor vehicle. In 2016 the same thing was illustrated in France and Germany in well reported incidents and with less mainstream media coverage in Italy, Spain, The Netherlands, Belgium, Austria and Denmark. There were also numerous shootings and knife attacks from the USA to Greece, and in all cases the perpetrators were radicalised Salafist Muslims. And apologies to the easily triggered, but to any reasonable person, that pattern is enough to establish beyond reasonable doubt a link between the fundamentalist Islamic Sunni sect and terrorism.

So in effect the cowardly, timorous, pusillanimous poltroons of the Canadian government are asking their citizens to tolerate and accept terrorists whose avowed aim is to exterminate all non Muslims. 

The Canadian Liberal MP Iqra Khalid (hmm, that name is a bit of a clue where her sympathies lie), who introduced the motion in Canada, proclaimed that the introduction of a de facto Islamic blasphemy law in Canada was needed because "We need to continue to build those bridges among Canadians, and this is just one way that we can do this." Hours before she said that, one of Khalid's co-religionists was using a bridge built more than a hundred and fifty years earlier for a very different purpose. But don't bridges in Muslim culture carry two way traffic. Because there seems to be no mention of banning Muslim hate preacher yelling "Death to Infidels," or demanding that pork be banned from Canadian menus because it offends Islam. Not much tolerance coming from their side it seems.

Khalid Masood of Birmingham decided to get himself on the fast track to heaven when he decided to drive  a hired SUV at high speed into crowds of workerss and tourists on London's Westminster Bridge . On his rampage, he managed to injure people from 11 countries. He killed Kurt Cochran, an American on holiday in London with his wife to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. He also killed Aysha Frade, a British national of Spanish and Cypriot descent who had been walking across Westminster Bridge to pick up her two young daughters from school. He also killed Leslie Rhodes, a 75-year old retired window-cleaner, described by a neighbour, who sat at his bedside in hospital as he died, as "the nicest man you ever met." In support of what we said about American liberals being as spineless as Canadians, we can report Mr. Cochran's family said they bore no ill will towards his killer. What is wrong with these people that they think we should hug the terrorist shits who kill our family members.


There is only one reponse to terrorism. Ask yourself this: If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us, do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge? (Act 3 Scene 1, The Merchant Of Venice, William Shakespeare - read full speech) OK, if you are Canadian write those lines in magic marker on a big, jagged lump of concrete rubble, then take it to where Justin Trudeau lives and ram it up his arse.

After the carnage on the bridge, the assailant, 52-year old Khalid Masood ran at the Houses of Parliament and stabbed to death Police Constable Keith Palmer, 48. The Palace of Westminster was put into lockdown. The scenario is eerily similar to an Islamist attack on the Parliament building at Ottawa in 2014, the assailant got disturbingly close to the very centre of power in the land before being shot dead. And that bunch of cunts in the Canadian Parliament want Canadian citizens to accept terrorist shits into their communities. WTF is wrong with these crazies. When a lunatic tells you they are coming round your house to kill you, it is irrational to tell them that you want to cooperate and will leave the door open.

"The New World Order Is Under Enormous Strain" Says Hillary Clinton's RINO Poodle

After Donald Trump's "art of the deal" failed at the last moment, after the President and Sen. Paul Ryan had led an effort to repeal Obamacare but were betrayed by Republicans in The House Of Representatives, some of whom wanted to pimp up Obamacare, while others wanted government out of the healthcare system altogether. The defeat appears to be a terminal setback for Trump's plan to reform US healthcare and as if that was not enough for one day, Senator John McCain, a man once hailed as a war hero but now more recognised as a lap dog of the Clinton Crime Syndicate and the global government movement renewed his calls for a return to a legacy neocon status quo that defined policy throughout the Bill Clinton / Dubya Bush / Barack Obama administrations. Speaking at the Brussels economic forum, McCain said that the world "cries out for American and European leadership" through the EU and NATO, and said that the EU and the US needed to develop "more cooperation, more connectivity".


In a "new world order under enormous strain" and in "the titanic struggle with forces of radicalism … we can't stand by and lament, we've got to be involved," said warmonger McCain, who chairs the armed services committee in the US Senate, according to the EU Observer.

"I trust the EU," he said, an opposite view from that of US president Trump who, showing his business acumen, said in January that the UK "was so smart in getting out" of the EU and that NATO was "obsolete". In spite of evidence that the Neocon / European Union / New World Order dream of a federal European superstate looks close to failure McCain echoed the line of war criminal, traitor, fraudster and former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton that the EU was "one of the most important alliances" for the US and that the EU and NATO were "the best two sums in history", which have maintained peace for the last 70 years. This is bollocks of course; from the end of World War 2 to the collapse of the Soviet Union mutually asured destruction kept the peace and since then the US government and NATO have been in the business of starting wars, sponsoring terrorism and engineering regime change.

Further attacking Trump's worldview, McCan told his audience "we need to rely on NATO and have a NATO that adjusts to new challenges." He noted that "the EU has too many bureaucrats, not much bureaucracy," but added that "it's not the only place on earth with that problem." He said that he was "still wondering what the overall effect of Brexit will be" and that he did not know "if this is the beginning of a serious problem for the EU". McCain did not disagree, however, with Trump's demand that European countries increase their defense spending for NATO.

McCain also revealed he hasn’t met the President Donald Trump in person since he took office, and he urged Trump to reach out to his opponents—Democratic and otherwise, as Ronald Reagan did, if he wants to repeal Obamacare. “Do some outreach. Get to know some of these Democratic leaders,” he said. “You can find common ground.” At least that bit was not totally daft, but reaching out to the Democrat crazies these days is like putting your hand in a crocodile's mouth

McCain said he’d met Trump “some years ago” when he was a businessman, but had not met him since. McCain said he did speak “almost daily” to National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, however.

“He doesn’t seem to be that upset that he’s not talking to him,” said German Marshall Fund’s Derek Chollet, a former Obama Pentagon official. “He’s trying to run U.S. defense policy through Mattis and effectively ignore Trump.”

That said, McCain also said it was "too early" to pass judgment on his presidency, although his series of critical comments in recent weeks have demonstrated his growing skepticism about the Trump administration.

Former Labour Foreign Minister: UK Can’t Defeat Terror Without Understanding Religion

Former Labour Party minister Kim Howells, who was responsible for military security under Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, has suggested the Labour government of which he was a member was wrong to ignore the religious roots of Islamist terror, urging authorities to ‘take on’ the ideology to defeat terror.


While Blair was playing the Christian crusader as sidekick to US President George W Bush (and being reminded by his spin doctor Alistair Campbell that in Britain "we don't do God" there was, Mr. Howells said, a failure to understand that Islamist violence is distinct from other forms of terror and Western values such as democracy must be defended. Presumably he is trying to tell his party the time for appeasement of Islamic extremism is gone, it's time to push back.


“I was part of a Government that said: ‘Well, we don’t do God.’ he commented, "But you can’t afford not to do God on this one, I think,” he told Wales Online.


“These people aren’t motivated – not on the most part, anyway – by money or some kind of nationalism. It’s different from the IRA. These people are prepared to kill themselves and they do it because they think it’s a shortcut to paradise…


“Unless people have enough courage to take that on and try and convince young people that the Caliphate is not a better way of running society than a democracy they are going to be lured to these organisations.”


Whilst some say Islamic terror is largely driven by grievances such as “Islamophobia”, “alienation”, marginalisation, poverty and Western foreign policy, Mr. Howells argues that in order to understand fundamentalist Islam's loathing of western culture it is necessary to appreciate the importance of theological conflicts in Islamic societies.


“These guys are not just trying to kill unbelievers and Christians and so on. Their main enemy is another form of Islam,” he said, referring to the violent schism between Sunni and Shia Islam.


"Many other nations and ethnic groups have been affected by foreign interventions and discrimination, yet the vast majority of recent terror attacks have occurred in countries afflicted by Islamist insurgencies."


It is true that western governments have failed to understand the deep rooted causes of Islamic extremism but this blog would argue that is not a failing on the part of western cultures. Rather it is not possible for westerners to understand the backward and tribalistic mindset of many subcultures in the Muslim world. How for example does one go about persuading randy young men who have been indoctrinated with the idea that women are unclean, their only purposes being to serve men and to produce babies, to understand that in the west women are independent beings, free to dress how they wish and go freely wherever they want to in the same way men are. Or to make fundamentalists understand that while nobody is going to make Muslims or Jews eat pork and ham, we accept the right to eat those foods in accordance with the values and traditions of our culture, and they must learn to live alongside pork eaters.


If we cannot do that, and I suspect we can't, then we in the secular democracies must accept that mass immigration from certain Muslim cultures is not going to work, that some people just cannot accept that while we respect their right to worship as they wish, we expect them to afford us the same respect, even if in the cases of many of us it means that we choose not to worship but use our right to freedom of speech to argue against religion. Because until they are able to grant our values the same respect as they demand we grant theirs, fundamentalist Islam and secular society can never live side by side.

US Congressional Intelligence Committee Exposes FBI Director Comey As A Lying Long Streak Of Piss

by Arthur Foxake, 22 March, 2017

Two days ago, to the delight of Trump haters, supporters of The Clinton Crime Syndicate, The (US) Democratic Party and other enemies of democracy, FBI director James Comey appeared to demolish President Trump's allegation that during the 2016 election campaign the Trump campaign headquarters was being wiretapped by president Obama before the election. As British Prime Minister Harold Wilson once said, 'a week is a long time in politics' and that means two days is enough for a situation to change completely. Thus it now appears that Comey was being disingenuous, just as he was when he exonerated Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton of crimes relating to breaches of national security protocols even though there was ample evidence of Clinton's guilt to justify charghing her with treason.

Today the House Intelligence Chairman, Devin Nunes, told reporters that the U.S. intelligence community incidentally collected information on members of President Trump's transition team, possibly including Trump himself, and the information was "widely disseminated" in intelligence reports.

In other words, Trump was right to say that his campaign was being bugged by Obama, while Barack Obama, a self confessed technologyphobe could not have personally installed the hack (probably a software tool rather than the physical 'wiretap' Democrats, left - wing media luvvies, and Trump haters on social media have been raving about, he would have had to authorise the electronic surveillance project.


 AP reports, Nunes said that President Donald Trump's communications may have been "monitored" during the transition period.

Nunes told a news conference that the communications appear to be picked up through "incidental collection" (what an 'incidental collection' is we may only speculate about) and do not appear to be related to the ongoing FBI investigation into Trump associates' contacts with Russia, another democrat / left wing media smear campaign against Trump that has been discredited.

"I recently confirmed that on numerous occasions, the intelligence community collected information on U.S. individuals involved in the Trump transition," Nunes told reporters.

"Details about U.S. persons involved in the incoming administration with little or no apparent foreign intelligence value were widely disseminated in intelligence community reports."
The information was "legally brought to him by sources who thought we should know it," Nunes said, though he provided little detail on the source.

Conservative Students At St. Olaf College Feel Threatened By Liberal Hate Mob

St. Olaf College, a Lutheran liberal arts school in Minnestota must rank as the top school in the USA for Orvine Studies. 80% of the students voted for the Clinton/Kaine ticket in the 2016 election, while Trump/Pence drew 1 in 10 and Johnson/Weld 1 in 20.

Instead of  feeling pride at their hircine ability to think for themselves the Trump supporters are now feeling marginalised among the minge costume wearing, placard waving idiots, according to student newspaper Manitou Messenger:
Of the 12 students interviewed by the Manitou Messenger, several have been violently threatened because of their political beliefs, and almost all of them feel as though they can’t speak up about politics on campus – in class, online or with their friends. …

On the night of the election, a student in the Pause threatened to beat up [College Republicans President Emily] Schaller, calling her a “f***ing moron.” Over the next couple of days, she overheard multiple students threaten to hurt the next conservative or Republican they saw. Vice President of St. Olaf College Republicans Kathryn Hinderaker ’19 had a similar experience.

“I think one of the hardest things was, the second day, I went into Buntrock and someone yelled from the bottom, ‘if you voted for Trump, you better be f***ing scared.’ Everyone clapped and applauded,” Hinderaker said. “Obviously, it didn’t feel super safe.”
Like some liberal students who felt unsafe after the election, a St. Olaf conservative student said she “went home for awhile” because of the animus toward conservatives in her classes. She said online harassment led her to transfer to another school after the fall semester.

Another Republican student reported that on Feb. 18, a Hillary Clinton supporting hate mob posted an unsolicited photo of a group of students that supposedly included Trump supporters and encouraged fellow students to “remember their faces.”
It’s lonely being conservative at St. Olaf, even though its College Republicans chapter didn’t endorse Donald Trump and refused to phone bank for him in the general election. And it is not just the students who support war loving, hatemongering traitors and war criminals like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. One political science student said her professor “started every class with basically just ridiculing Trump for about 20 minutes,” and she now plans to transfer to another school next year. Another student said his professor’s anti-Trump animus makes him keep quiet so she won’t “possibly bring down my grade.”

But another St. Olaf conservative warns his peers not to act like “some oppressed minority group” because “it engages in the same identity politics that already make it so hard to have constructive conversations about challenging issues.” Quite right, the liberals will keep bullying as long as they are allowed to think they have the upper hand. Challenge them.


This blog feels rather let down by the attitude of these 'conservative students'. Being in an oppressed minority can be fun, especially when the would be oppressors idea of violence is dressing up as a cunt (not that they need costumes to look the part), chanting slogans and waving placards. Some years ago a British politician described being attacked by liberals as being similar to "being savaged by a dead sheep." That being the case (and it is, trust me - and don't ask where the bodies are buried,) the correct response to 'liberals' threatening that you should be scared would be to say, "Why, are you going to stand there and call me a racist while I break every bone in your body one by one.

The illiberal idiots who call themselves 'liberals' these days are snivelling little wet farts. Tell them so and it will 'trigger' an emotional crisis that will keep them in regular psychotherapy sessions for years.

Is Denmark On The Brink?

Authored by Erico Matias Tavares via Sinclair & Co.,

Iben Thranholm examines political and social events with focus on their religious aspects, significance and moral implications. She is one of Denmark’s most widely read columnists on such matters. Thranholm is a former editor and radio host at the Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR), at which she created a religious news program that set a new standard for religious analysis in the newsroom. She has traveled extensively in the Middle East, Italy, the United States and Russia to carry out research and interviews. She has been awarded for her investigative research into Danish media coverage of religious issues.



E Tavares: Iben, thank you for being with us today. Over a year ago we talked to Dr. Tino Sanandaji, an economics professor at a leading Swedish university, on the inconsistencies of Swedish immigration policies. The resulting post was hit, revealing a significant interest for this topic. 
In a sense Sweden is the canary in the coalmine of Europe’s demographic future, since they have been at the forefront of this transformation and openly embrace it. Being a close neighbor we would like to get your views on what is happening there, as well as in Denmark. How do the Danes look at Sweden, with hope or apprehension? 

I Tranholm: With absolute horror!
The Swedish media, which is quite pro-government and its leftwing policies, does not always report the full extent of the problems in their society. So it is hard to have a very accurate picture of what is going on. But we in Denmark have a good sense. We are very aware of the murders, rapes, riots, violence and the hand grenades that go on there. This does not often make the news but we know it is going on. And we don’t want to go down the same route. 
This is the result of decades of policies promoting multiculturalism in Sweden. And what is left is this hollow house. You know, in the Bible it is said that if a house is left swept, tidied and unoccupied it eventually it will be taken over by evil. And I fear that this is what is happening in Sweden. Far from being a multicultural paradise, the problems can no longer remain hidden.

ET: Indeed, even President Trump made some controversial comments about Sweden at a recent rally in the US, causing an international uproar, with many debates on whether he was right or wrong. Did this cause some discussion in Denmark as well?

IT: It wasn’t much of a discussion because we in Denmark know what is happening in Sweden. Malmo is very close so we only need to go there to see it with our own eyes.
There was a TV ad partially paid by the Swedish government recommending that all Swedes integrate into this new multicultural society they are creating. Think about that. Even old Swedes now need to adjust to this new reality, instead of immigrants adapting to Swedish society. They call it “Det nya landet”, which means the new country. Traditional Sweden is gone.

ET: Swedes and Danes share many cultural traits. What explains this divergence in opinions? Is it because you do not face the same societal problems? 

IT: We are not as politically correct as the Swedes. So there is a lot of discussion here. (…) As such we have a greater awareness of our heritage and tend to be more protective of it.
Which is not to say we don’t have problems. We do. We face the same identity issues, and our traditions – in particular our Christian heritage – are fast disappearing from our society. That same hollowness is now becoming mainstream in Denmark. And this eliminates much of the arguments to defend ourselves against the importation of foreign values and customs, many of which are at odds with our own. Simply forbidding things will not change this reality.

ET: And how has integration been? Seems to be going better than other European countries since we don’t hear much about “no-go” zones and riots in your country, unlike France and Sweden, for instance.

IT: We have those problems as well but because Denmark is a small country you won’t hear about them as much.
We have this belief here that welfare is the solution for everything. No matter who comes here from whatever part of the world will get housing, work, entertainment and healthcare. The government will give those to you with the expectation that if you have all those things you will happily assimilate into Danish society, learn Danish and adapt to our culture. As a result we will become a vibrant multicultural society.
The reality is quite different. The relativism that this multiculturalism engenders ends up putting different sides of society at odds with each other, especially when their values and beliefs are very different to begin with.
When immigrants come to Denmark they may be taken care of, but they have no dominant culture that they can assimilate into, certainly not in the religious sense. We are completely devoid of God. And as a result they end bringing elements of their culture and religion which often create friction, misunderstandings and also crime. So Danish society becomes more and more divided as a result.

ET: Politicians seem to be getting the message. Your parliament recently passed legislation to ensure that immigration would never reach a level that would threaten Danish national identity. What do you make of this?

IT: We have a very divided society here as well, even without considering the waves of immigration that have recently settled here.
Half of the population wants open borders, mass immigration and welfare for all. They reject traditional values and are very much in favor of globalism and multiculturalism. The other half is very much opposed to that, but they lack any persuasive arguments to support that position. All they can do is to forbid immigration, forbid women from wearing a head cloth and so on.
We no longer have a moral compass. Before, Christianity provided this role, keeping us united over centuries. Now we can no longer distinguish between good and evil, and ultimately this is what this struggle comes down to. Without this any preventive measures like this are just quick fixes that will not solve anything over the longer term. What is needed is a positive alternative in a moral sense.

ET: Is there any data or independent studies on the benefits and costs of immigration in Denmark? In Sweden for instance this topic is almost taboo, but there are many concerns in terms of finding good employment opportunities for immigrants, coming from the immigrants themselves in fact.

IT: With this new culture we have adopted in the West we stopped having enough children to support our welfare state. So yes, one argument is that we need more people to support it.
In our own very secular society the state is God. It is supposed to provide and care for everybody. So the economic arguments become less relevant. Of course they are consideration since people are paying for these policies, but in a sense they are secondary.

ET: We are at the cusp of an automation wave that threatens to displace millions of workers across the developed world. This will raise even more concerns regarding mass immigration, which traditionally consists of lower skilled workers. Is there any discussion in Denmark about this?

IT: No. The only discussion is around the cultural aspect, namely the impact on our values and traditions.
And in a sense this just shows how weak we are. For instance, there are only 250,000 Muslims in Denmark, so a tiny minority. And yet the majority of our political debates focusing on culture over the last ten years have largely revolved around Islam. That’s how weak our culture has become.
So while as an open society there is resistance to women having to cover themselves up, having separate swimming pools for men and women and so forth, we have lost the argument to combat these imported traditions largely because we have lost our Christian roots and values. So over time they will become more prevalent in our society. We are already seeing it.

ET: Secular Muslims may also lose out a result. Many cherish Western values but will increasingly find a native society that is at odds with them, as their own communities become more extremist. Many complain that the Islam in Denmark and other European countries is more hardcore or even radical than in their home countries.

IT: That is true. And again that is largely a result of this cultural hesitation in the societies that host them. As a result, those more aggressive forms gain more ground to the detriment of everyone, especially women.

ET: Much of the developing world faces a difficult situation and undoubtedly the countries that can help should. Let’s face it, faulty Western foreign policies have made bad situations even worse across much of the Middle East, although other very important sectarian and ethnic conflicts play a large role as well. 
There are those who suggest that instead of opening the borders this help should be provided at the origin, which would be cheaper and thus could help many more people, would place refugees closer to their homes and avoid many of the social problems we are unfortunately seeing across Europe – caused by a minority to be sure, but still very problematic. What do Danish politicians think about this?

IT: That would be logical in many ways, but again the debate is not economical. People want to be perceived as doing good, meaning opening their communities, welcoming and caring for others.
I would be in favor of that if we were talking about women and their children, even families. But the reality is different. The majority of people we have welcomed in recent years, especially following the migrant crisis, are fit young men. They bring their conflicts and their frustrations with them, creating a difficult environment for everyone. 
So yes, arguably it would be more efficient to provide care at the source but this is not how the debate is framed.

ET: Denmark is supposedly the happiest country on the planet. But you have little reason to be happy these days as you find yourself on the receiving end of government censorship, not only for expressing your concerns about the future of your country but also for working for a Russian news outlet. What happened here? You recently wrote a powerful piece about this, expressing your feelings not only as a woman who does not toe the party line but especially as a Christian. 

IT: In 2015 I wrote an article criticizing our politicians who for the most part hate Christianity but nevertheless use Christian values, especially charity and compassion, to promote their own agendas, in particular mass immigration. So I called them out on that.
A few months later I got a call from a politician here who told me that I was on a government blacklist, supposedly acting as a pro-Russian propagandist agent, despite having absolutely no evidence to that effect. I occasionally work for a Russian news outlet, but that’s simply my job as a journalist. 
Today, in a society where supposedly there is freedom of speech, if politicians want to silence their critics they simply accuse them of working for the Kremlin, or having some unexplained ties with Russia. That is what happened to me, and it also happening to high profile politicians and journalists in the US, France and Germany. If you don’t agree with the multicultural policies of Europe then you are labeled a Russian agent. Which is really a form of political or character assassination.
They are so afraid of the rise of what leftist politicians in Europe call “populism”, which threaten the existence of their beloved European Union. And this year the stakes are very high with elections in France and Germany. So they resort to these kinds of tactics to quash any dissenters.
So I find myself in a blacklist in a supposedly free country like Denmark, but if a conflict with Russia emerges I can end up in prison under the pretext of being a foreign agent. Again, with no proof and no judicial process. This is very much how totalitarian societies operate. First they put you on a list, then when there is a problem or a made-up reason they will come for you.

ET: You were only expressing views that are consistent with those of many conservatives on both sides of the Atlantic. There are certainly many people concerned about the future of Western societies. In many ways this evokes memories of the Soviet Union, and the great new society they tried to create, with the disastrous consequences we all know.

That is actually a very real and concerning comparison. After all, communism was a Western idea and it was imposed on Russia, they did not create it. And it did not die with the collapse of the Soviet Union. On the contrary, it is still very much alive and roaming around our continent. While it operates differently, the goals are not too dissimilar. The version we have spreading across the West is Cultural Marxism.
We no longer have families, religion, even genders. In Sweden now they have invented a gender neutral term to address little boys and girls at kindergarten. This is a complete change from traditional Western values that have kept Europe safe from outside invasion for centuries. And this is now gone.
All this talk of multiculturalism and open borders sounds very nice, but in practice it has led to a progressive transformation of our societies, and as Sweden shows not for the better. Less freedoms, less safety, less cohesion; more crime, more fragmentation, more social problems. It really is a struggle of good versus evil, and we in the West can no longer distinguish between the two. I would even call it diabolical disorientation.

ET: So how long you think before the Christian cross is removed from your flag? And how does the Danish monarchy, which is sworn to protect Danish culture and religion, feel about all of this?

IT: No European politician will stand up for Christianity. Nobody. Expect from perhaps Hungarian Prime Minister, Victor Orbán.
There is this unholy alliance between the left and radical Islam. Many Europeans have such a disdain for their own traditions that they would prefer to see Christianity being eradicated even if it might cost their way of life and even personal freedoms in the end.
We have this bizarre situation where Western feminists support women having to wear a head cloth, along with foregoing many of the rights they should be able to enjoy in our countries. And these women often get penalized by their own communities when they try to assimilate into our society, while the feminists stay quiet. It is all very multicultural and good.

ET: You know Russia well as part of your work. Can you contrast what is happening there relative to the transformation taking place across much of Western Europe?

Believe it or not, we have swapped lanes. Now it is Russia who is adopting Christianity as the West gets rid of it by any means possible.
Christianity runs very deep in Russia: in their literature, in their arts, in their culture. When the Soviets brutally tried to suppress it, at the cost of countless lives, it survived underground. People still celebrated it in secrecy, performing baptisms and the like behind closed doors. 
President Putin recently inaugurated an enormous statue of St. Vladimir, the patron saint of the Russian Orthodox Church, about 100 yards from the Kremlin walls. If you stand at a certain point across the street from the Kremlin, the cross that he bears is even taller than the star in the Red Square, so the symbolism is very potent.
In the West, as we discussed, we are going the other way. We can’t discard our values and heritage fast enough.

ET: There was a 2014 Russian movie, Leviathan, which alluded to this transformation. However it put Orthodox Christianity in a less positive light, essentially being used as an ideological argument to justify the power of the oligarchs in society. President Putin is certainly no saint. Isn’t this all just superficial?

IT: There are people in Russia who are also opposed to their own traditional values and who want a more Westernized Russia. I have not seen that movie so I can’t say if the director supports that view or not.
People need to go to Russia and see it for themselves. President Putin is only responding to what is happening there and he respects the Russian people’s faith in Orthodoxy.
This is one of the reasons why I believe the West hate the Russians so much. They cannot tolerate the thought of having a resurgent and powerful Christian Russia who openly rejects their Cultural Marxism. And accordingly they demonized it in much of our media and political circles.

ET: So, is Denmark on the brink? Indeed, is the rest of Europe on the brink?

IT: Yes, Denmark is on the brink. And Europe is on the brink. We completely lost our culture, our values and our moral compass. What used to be good is now evil and vice-versa. 
You mentioned Denmark being the happiest country in the world but I am not sure that is true. We have high alcohol consumption and about half a million people on happy pills for a reason.
Channel 1, our main TV channel here, recently aired a documentary on three Danish girls who converted to Islam out of their own will, not because they got married or anything like that. They all had the same background, coming from broken homes, dealing with alcoholism and so forth – basically part of the legacy of the 1968 revolution we had across Europe. What these girls lacked was structure, and they found it in Islam because it regulates all aspects of your life: how you dress, what you eat, with whom you can socialize with, how to pray, how to interact as a wife and so on.
That is what the right-wing parties in Europe don’t understand. This is a spiritual battle. There is no political freedom without spiritual freedom. If you go around just forbidding things, like don’t wear the head cloth and so forth, it will not work. Our civilization will gradually disappear.
The only thing that can save Europe right now is a true spiritual, dare I say Christian, revival across the Continent. This played a significant role in the demise of communism in the Soviet Union and East Germany. The churches there provided hidden venues for people to congregate, express ideas and share their faith and hardships.
Since its inception Christianity was always about fighting evil with love, prayer and faith because these three are the key to freedom. And these are the values that the radical left and radical Islam do not tolerate, because of course both demand total obedience to the state and their conception of God, respectively.

ET: Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and your courage. You deserve to be in the cover of a magazine, not on some government blacklist. Wish you all the best.

IT: Thank you.
