The Alexandria shootings and the ‘agenda’

The left is pretty predictable in their habit of calling for gun control whenever any kind of mass shooting happens, and oddly (one might think) even when the shooter is one of their own, one of their fellow fanatic ideologues, like the latest perpetrator.

Actually many if not most of these kinds of shootings are done by lefties, though maybe the mainstream GOP types make too much of the political affiliations of the perps in cases like this. For example, they will gleefully mention that some deranged shooter or assailant was a ‘registered Democrat’ when the important fact that they shy away from mentioning is usually race. If the perpetrator is black, the cucked GOP types will mention his party affiliation long before dreaming of mentioning race or religion (if said perp happens to be, oh, say, Jewish. Some things cannot be mentioned. For instance, the Columbine shootings?)

But in this case, the shooter, in Alexandria, VA, was very much a Democrat and his motivations were political; his intended targets were Republicans or Trump supporters in particular it seems.

Now we’re reading of how the shameless, callous left has been celebrating the shootings on Twitter and other social media. I can’t say I’m surprised; they are without shame or scruple, and it still astounds me how they are able to pull their double standard routine time after time. They have the unmitigated gall to pretend to be compassionate, sensitive ‘pacifists’ and Gandhi-devotees (BTW Gandhi was not as pacifistic as he pretended to be; he just got others to gin up conflicts for him) who shrink from violence. Part of this shameless play-acting of theirs is to pretend to be mortified at the mere thought of firearms, while when one of their own wields a gun, especially in an act of attempted assassination, they cheer it on, and make heartless, cynical statements disparaging the victim(s), especially if said victims are White.

It’s all who is doing what to whom. They heartily approve of violence provided it’s done against White, right-wing males, or even semi-right-wing Whites.

How does one shame people for whom shame is a foreign emotion? How can one stir guilt or conscience in ‘people’ without any sense of guilt, and lacking even the semblance of a conscience?

The left, almost to a man (or woman, or whatever other gender they believe themselves to be) are the clinical definition of psychopaths or sociopaths. I often scoff at psychology/psychiatry as pseudo-science, but if such things as psychopaths and sociopaths exist, the left fits the definition. (Incidentally, it’s sort of delicious for me to be able to cite HuffPost for the definition of those terms; if anybody knows what those terms mean, it’s that crowd.)

  • Prone to nervousness, distress and temper meltdowns, not easily calm and suave like the psychopath

  • Usually not well-educated, often non-gainfully employed, the drifter type, the one whom everyone sees as “troubled” or “disturbed.”

  • Their crimes typically are sloppy rather than meticulously premeditated and planned.

  • Capable of emotional bonds with others, but this is difficult to achieve.

  • Despite the capability of emotional attachments, they disregard social mores as a whole.

Notice they cite Ted Bundy as an example of a psychopath. I will say Ted was just evil and twisted, and leave the faux science to the lefties. I am sure they picked Bundy because he was, firstly, White, second, male, and third, supposedly an active member of the Republican party. Why not cite Coral Eugene Watts or Charles Ng?

The left, in typical not-taking-responsibility fashion, will not own its terrorists or psycho-killers, and when forced to acknowledge them, fall back on victimology excuse-making and rationalizing: ‘victim of racism’ or ‘childhood abuse and poverty’, or in this case, driven to it by Donald Trump, I suppose.

But maybe the left’s constant calls for gun control might be muted if they admitted to themselves that they enjoy seeing their fellow lefty-fanatics blasting away at Evil Whitey Republicans. When guns are outlawed, only right-wing gun-nuts will have guns. No, wait, the lefties represent the lawless, criminal side of society, the side their “hearts” always bleed for, and their kind can always obtain weapons, laws or no laws.

 

Theresa May: no more ‘safe spaces’ online

Tiberge at GalliaWatch reports that Theresa May issued a communique in Arabic, of all things. A translation is at that blog.

Here’s one of the salient parts:

“Third, while we need to deprive the extremists of their safe spaces online, we must not forget about the safe spaces that continue to exist in the real world. Yes, that means taking military action to destroy ISIS in Iraq and Syria. But it also means taking action here at home. While we have made significant progress in recent years, there is – to be frank – far too much tolerance of extremism in our country.

So we need to become far more robust in identifying it and stamping it out – across the public sector and across society. That will require some difficult and often embarrassing conversations, but the whole of our country needs to come together to take on this extremism – and we need to live our lives not in a series of separated, segregated communities but as one truly United Kingdom.”

What jumps out here is not just the call for some kind of censorship of the Internet, but also the carefully parsed language which condemns ‘extremism‘ — not Islam, of course, and not just ‘Islamic extremism’ or ‘extremist Islam’, which are favorite weasel-phrases of our politicians, but extremism per se. Whatever that may mean to people like Theresa May, and however they define it. Obviously they are implying that the rightful people of the UK, the indigenous White people whose country the UK is, are also among those in the sights of the government — if they dare to criticize Holy Diversity (particularly, but not limited to, moslems) or immigration. We’ve seen how the governments in Europe have gone after their native indigenous White citizens if they so much as questioned immigration policy, or said an unflattering word about immigrants themselves. Twitter (and probably other social media sites) have colluded with the totalitarians in charge to zero in on people who said impolitic things online.

If Theresa May is proposing this, likely all the Western governments are going to act in concert to clamp down on the free speech of their own citizens who are deemed ‘extremists’, and that would include dissident bloggers and commenters.

I’ve said it before, and never yet got an ‘amen’, but I am becoming more convinced that most Western leaders, those in Europe especially, have already surrendered to Islam. Look at May herself, with her headscarves, her obsequious attitude toward her Islamic ‘constituents’, and now, communiques in Arabic. More and more it looks to me like surrender is a done deal, a fait accompli, (how does one say that in Arabic, Madame May?) and the hapless citizens who are to be made dhimmis are going to be the last to catch on, the last to be told.

Even Italy, which Italian-Americans have often boasted would never tolerate what the weaklings in Western Europe have allowed, is ferrying ‘refugees’ to their country, not just fishing them out of the Mediterranean for humanitarian reasons, as we were told. Italian ships are still going obligingly to North Africa to fetch these ‘refugees’ and deposit them in their new home in Europe.

So far, Eastern Europe appears to be a holdout against this kind of insanity, but will that last? Will the globalist powers-that-be truly be content to let Eastern Europe alone, or are they just biding their time, or getting Western Europe subjugated first, hoping that the rest will fall in line in due time, when they too are targeted for dhimmitude?

In any case it looks like much of Europe has in fact thrown in the towel, and the quislings are firmly ensconced as the puppet ‘leadership’, May and Merkel being pre-eminent.

May speaks ominously of “one truly United Kingdom.” There can be no naturally united kingdom in Britain that is a hybrid of Islam/Sharia Law and the true English tradition. Oil and water cannot mix. Kipling was right in saying (of East and West) that ‘never the twain shall meet.’

A propos of the New Orleans vandalism

On Confederate soldiers_from God's War by Wilson Vance

The above is a quote from Wilson Vance, in the book God’s War.

It is ironic how quickly our society descended from a kind of burying the hatchet between North and South, to absolute hatred and intolerance of anything to do with the Confederacy. The younger folk out there may not believe this, but before the Civil Rights Revolution (or would coup be a better word?) the great men of the Confederacy were not vilified but mentioned favorably in school textbooks used in the North, and the official position was to treat the Confederate dead as honored fallen, much as were the Northern soldiers. However since the malicious talebearing of certain ‘civil rights’ organizations since the 1980s, the left (and much of the ignorant political ‘center’ in this country, if such a segment even exists) have become as people possessed. I say ‘possessed’ is not too strong a word; it is not hyperbole by any means, judging by the foaming-at-the-mouth attitudes and behavior of the anti-Southern left. They are possessed (I would say truly, in a Biblical sense) by malice and destructiveness when it comes to all the symbols and heroes of the Confederacy. Like their ‘daddy’ and exemplar, Satan, they never rest, and never will stop in their fury and vandalism until every last Confederate symbol and monument is pulled down, trampled on, spat on, burnt, or crushed. Next to be the target of their destructiveness will be the few people who even attempt, peaceably, to oppose their ugly rampages.

Wilson Vance was right when he said the graves and monuments of the Confederate fallen should be guarded, cared for, and honored. Instead mobs of ignoramuses and historical illiterates are committing their acts of cultural vandalism. Those who stand by and watch, without feeling so much as a twinge of outrage, are just as bad as the ones wreaking the destruction. Not to take a stand is itself taking a stand. There won’t be any neutrals in the conflict that is seemingly brewing.

 

“Signed, White America”

Another hate hoax, this one with a slight twist.

“CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WLOS) – Police arrested a man who is accused of arson, ethnic intimidation, and committing a hate crime at Central Market in Charlotte on Thursday.

Curtis Dwight Flournoy, 32, is charged with burning a building of trade, malicious damage by use of an incendiary material, felony breaking and entering, ethnic intimidation, and anonymous or threatening letters.

Police searched for the man seen in surveillance video leaving a racist note, breaking a window at the business, and then setting a fire.”

When I read this, and saw the name of the accused, Flournoy, I jumped to the conclusion that the man charged was of Huguenot French ancestry; there are a number of people with names that are known as Huguenot names in that part of the South. My conclusion was wrong, as you can see by the photo of the accused.

In any case, it’s a relief to see that this ‘hate crime’ was likely not done by a White, but note this part of the story: the threatening note concluded with the signature “Signed, White America.”

Even without a signature like that, the media always, always assume that it is some White ‘hater’, when all too often the ‘hate crime’ turns out to be a ‘hate hoax.’ This fact is almost always swept under the rug by the mendacious media; when the crime is found to be a hoax, (usually by the person claiming to be the ‘victim’) they carefully bury that story on the back page somewhere.

In this case, it was not the victim who was the hoaxer, but Flournoy, pretending he represented ‘White America.’

But ultimately that’s the case with most of these kinds of hoaxes; the purported victim usually fakes the ‘hate crime’ with scrawled threats, ‘symbols of hate’ (so-called), usually a noose or a swastika or other such incendiary symbol. The point of claiming to have been victimized by some anonymous ‘hater’ or ‘nazi’ or [something]-phobe is not just to draw attention as we often assume, but to further the all-important ‘narrative’. As actual ‘hate crimes’ by White ‘bigots’ are pretty rare, once we subtract the many fakes, we see why it’s necessary, if you must have a ‘hate crime’, to act it out oneself. Pretty pathetic. Just doing the ‘hate crimes’ White bigots won’t do. If you want something done right, gotta do it yourself, as they saying goes.

In this case, the signature reveals the motive was not necessarily as much for the sake of threatening or driving out the Bhutanese man, but to keep the ‘White hater’ narrative alive. I would say that the perpetrator was targeting ‘White America’ more than he was this store owner. Just my opinion.

 

No sympathy

Only the most brain-dead of the lefties could still genuinely feel sympathy for the ‘refugees’ after hearing of behavior like this.

“A riot broke out at a refugee centre in Germany after a group of migrants smashed up their accommodations with iron bars over the lack of phone signal.”

And this isn’t the first time such a thing has happened over the most trivial causes.Supposedly these ‘refugees’ fled their countries, fearing for their lives. If that were true, they would be grateful for safety and a roof over their heads. They would not be wreaking havoc over the lack of Nutella or the lack of a phone signal.

It’s impossible for any sane person to sympathize with anyone who has such an attitude of entitlement and such lack of impulse control when frustrated. They are worse than spoiled children and the coddling they receive from do-gooders and the rogue governments of Europe has incited them to be even more violent and demanding.

 

Non-discrimination can be deadly

This story illustrates the fact that not discriminating can cost innocent lives, as well as damaging our societies in numerous ways.

As Val Koinen points out here, it’s insanity on parade. I fully agree with his outrage and apparent exasperation. The older generations, could they have seen into the future, into our time, would surely have been incredulous at this story. Imagine, a crazed killer could behead a man in full view of witnesses, on a bus, then be institutionalized in a ‘hospital’ for a short while — then be granted full freedom — and Canadian citizenship to boot. So now, the crazed killer,  (poor, sick individual, in PC terminology), one Vince Li is a Canadian citizen, with all the privileges and freedoms thereof, and he is known as ‘Will Baker’, for some bizarre reason.

Understandably, the mother of the murdered young man in this story, has opposed freeing the killer, and is quoted as saying ‘I have no words’ in response to the news.

Lest the victim be forgotten, as is usually the case, his name was Tim McLean. He was all of 22 years old. His apparent offense against the murderous Li (aka ‘Will Baker) was in smiling at him as he sat down, and asking Li how he was doing.

There are so many things wrong in this story, things which are symptomatic of how our countries (Canada, our country, and all the West) have lost their way. For instance, the obvious thing is the injustices of our ‘justice systems’, in all Western countries subverted by leftism/bleeding-heart pop psychology, and moral relativism. Then there is the ever-present issue of mass, promiscuous, un-vetted immigration, weighted towards the Third World and hostile, primitive countries in most cases, this being no exception. I am really weary of hearing about how ‘East Asians can produce civilized societies; they have high IQs and low criminality.’ Statements like that show a real ignorance of conditions on the ground in most East Asian countries. I consider Japan an exception, but I don’t idealize Japan, either.

Was this man vetted before immigrating to Canada? Since Canada has one of the most promiscuous immigration policies, being besotted with the idea of “diversity”, they seem to be actively recruiting people from the most backward and most hostile cultures on earth, given the statements their politicians are making. Not that our country is much better, if any. We can only hope that our President means what he has said about curtailing immigration, especially from certain societies. But poor Canada; they seem to have no political leader or other prominent voice to speak up for common sense and for the real, historic people of Canada.

So how many more homicidal or otherwise dangerous and problematic immigrants are in Canada — or in our country — now? How many future Lis does Canada have roaming their country? How many does America have? We are letting millions of un-vetted strangers into our countries, offering up our citizens, our children, our elderly, as potential sacrificial victims — and why? Because it is wrong to discriminate. Always wrong. It is evil. We are not to discriminate about who we allow into our countries on any basis, be it religion, nationality, race, creed, gender(!), health condition, character — any basis whatsoever. Send us your wretched refuse, by all means. We don’t discriminate. Let’s put that phrase on our national epitaphs: ”At least we didn’t discriminate.”

But not to discriminate is to give up our right to choose. It means we take huge risks; we leave it all to random chance. It amounts to having no standards whatsoever. It amounts to saying that one thing is as good as another. Law-abiding or criminal, healthy or contagiously diseased — we don’t care. It’s all the same. Ignorant or educated, skilled or uselessly unskilled, what’s the difference? Those who hate us? Just as welcome as those who like us. Come on in, one and all. And there are no limits on numbers, no quotas. Just keep ’em coming, always room for a few million more.

Imagine applying this kind of insanity to our own homes. If we did so, we’d have no locks on our doors; in fact we ought to leave the doors wide open so that nobody would have to trouble themselves to knock; they can walk right in. And bring their friends, families, in-laws, their whole clan, their whole village from the old country.

This is the essence of our immigration policies, on the premise that we ‘need’ more warm bodies — but most especially, ”diverse” warm bodies. People of color. Visible minorities, vis-mins, isn’t that what Canadians call them?

Insanity, as Val Koinen says, indeed, but our overlords, who are masterminding this whole ‘fundamental transformation’ of our national homes, are not insane as much as power-mad, greedy, and determined. They know what they are doing. There is a plan at work, though it seems  madness to the sane amongst us.

So our cultural Marxist system is busily destroying our countries under the guise of humane, compassionate ‘non-discrimination.’ Unless we commit ourselves to returning to common sense discernment, to choosing between good and evil, safe and unsafe, beneficial or destructive, we will continue to see many other stories like this one.

I’m impressed

I’ve been pleased with how busy President Trump has been since he took office. I can’t say I was one of those reluctant Trump voters who said they didn’t believe he would follow through on his promises, so I haven’t been surprised at his actions once he was in office. But this Executive Order impresses me; it’s a very sound idea, something that would have been done years, no, decades ago in a sane world. It’s only common sense, and it’s basic to what the role of government was meant to be in this country, that is, if we are to take the Founding Fathers’ intentions seriously.

“To better inform the public regarding the public safety threats associated with sanctuary jurisdictions, the Secretary shall utilize the Declined Detainer Outcome Report or its equivalent and, on a weekly basis, make public a comprehensive list of criminal actions committed by aliens and any jurisdiction that ignored or otherwise failed to honor any detainers with respect to such aliens,” the order reads.

The Executive Order also states that to “promote the transparency and situational awareness of criminal aliens in the United States,” the Secretary and the Attorney General are hereby directed to collect relevant data and provide quarterly reports on the “immigration status of all aliens incarcerated under the supervision of the Federal Bureau of Prisons; the immigration status of all aliens incarcerated as Federal pretrial detainees under the supervision of the United States Marshals Service; and the immigration status of all convicted aliens incarcerated in State prisons and local detention centers throughout the United States.”

Yes, I know I’m a ”glass-half-empty” kind of person, always hoping for the best possible outcome rather than half-measures, always wanting things to be done now, at once, not incrementally. And I don’t want to diminish the credit due to Trump for signing this order. But it would be nice if they would include ‘legal aliens’, people who have valid visas but who are not yet citizens. Or how about giving statistics on all immigrants involved in felonies? It would give us an idea of the real ‘value’ of immigration. So many Americans have been ingrained with the idea that ‘legal immigrants’ wear halos, and that legal=good, while only illegal immigrants are a problem in any way. For the last couple of decades that’s been one of my aims: getting people to see that we need to examine immigration in general, all immigration, not just the illegal kind.

But this is a start; it’s much needed and President Trump deserves kudos for this.

 

 

‘What they saw’

The headline on this piece quotes a source saying that investigating NYPD officers were ‘sickened by what they saw’ in the e-mail evidence in the Hillary investigation.

How trustworthy the sources are here is beyond me; I’m not familiar with the websites from which this information comes, so I leave that judgement to those who know more about them.

What I do know, because I remember the late 1990s during the Clinton pre-impeachment scandal(s), is that all the right-wing forums were a-buzz with rumor and speculation every time someone leaked new ‘revelations’ about the Clintons’ misconduct. Every time, the headlines screamed ‘Latest bombshells will finally expose the Clintons! Smoking gun found!‘ or similar sensationalism. Whatever it was, there was always something that was promoted as being ‘the Big One! This is it! This will make Clinton resign!’

As history shows, no matter what was revealed, it was never enough to cause the shameless Clintons and their minions and defenders to admit anything, much less to retire in disgrace. They brazened it out till the bitter end, even being so bold as to trash the White House when they departed. Of course the liberal lying media denied what happened, following their pattern of covering up anything done by ‘their own.’ If you search on the subject you will find the media sycophants calling the damage just ‘pranks’ and mischief, downplaying it, if not outright denying that it happened.

This is what happens with a dishonest media machine; Thomas Jefferson wrote so often of the vital importance of a free and independent press. We are now living the consequences of not guarding against the corruption of the media, and the concentration of media control in a few, very politicized hands.

So, it may be that these latest ‘bombshells’, this time involving much more than ‘juvenile pranks’ like trashing the White House, or worse even than the Lewinski lewdness, will prove devastating to the corrupt Democrat crime machine and all their degenerate associates and contributors. We can hope.

But personally I am not investing too much in this latest story, not until it is actually out in the open, if ever. It may prove to be yet another of many damp squibs, as with virtually all of the ‘explosive revelations’ against the Clintons in the late 90s.

The thing is, our enemies, the ‘progressives’, liberals, Democrats, are people who are generally lacking in morals, especially as regards sexual behavior. Even when sexual behavior becomes transgressive to the point of violating the laws of God and man, they have no sense of shame. They generally can’t be shocked, being very amoral people in a deep sense. Oh, sure, they have perfected the art of feigning shock, when they can find a political enemy caught in some compromising situation  — like when some Christian minister is caught in sexual misbehavior. Then they suddenly are full of high morals, reacting with condemnation, for example, if the misbehavior happens to involve homosexuality — while normally they champion, no, celebrate homosexuality. And look at how they defend, even now, Roman Polanski.

They are not like normal people who recoil from certain things naturally; they are hardened in their amorality; everything is excused as a lack of understanding on our part; everyone is a victim of genes or childhood trauma (child abusers, for example) or their behavior is called good and natural (transsexualism, homosexuality, bestiality).

There is nothing much that can shock them, and when it comes to politics they would defend the Devil himself because after all he is one of their own.

So, we’ll see what develops. It would be a great surprise, and decidedly a good thing if some eleventh-hour revelation brings down the Democrats and all their associates and enablers, especially in the media. That would be the kind of deus-ex-machina we need, but if they are to be defeated it may just be down to the usual factors: let the elections play out, and pray that the vote-rigging does not work this time for the Democrat machine.

Illegal alien crimes

Here’s a blog devoted to reporting crimes by illegal aliens (including some refugee crimes, apparently). While their efforts are worthwhile, seeing as how the lying media probably under-report and downplay such crimes, I can’t help reiterating that legal or illegal, the issue should be that the quality of the immigrants we now admit to our country means that more crime in our country is the result.

I don’t see why so many immigration restrictionists want to reduce the issue to one of ‘illegal vs. legal immigrants’, with legal=good and illegal, bad. It is not that cut and dried. Even apart from the serious crimes committed by immigrants of all kinds, we just do not need more immigrants, especially those from violent, unstable, high-crime countries.

A ‘Startpage’ web search yielded a slew of articles by a range of sources, from the Wall Street Journal (yes, they of ‘There Shall Be Open Borders’ fame) to PBS, the WaPo, some libertarian open-borders sources, and so on. Skewed much? In any case, reading those sources would have us believe that immigrants are much more law-abiding than natives of this country. Maybe — depending, of course, on which ‘natives’ you mean.

Even alternative search engines seem to give heavily biased results.

This article from American Thinker says that it appears illegal immigrants commit murder at a higher rate than the native-born population. Whether there is any data on the difference between immigrants here legally vs. those here illegally, it isn’t easy to determine.

Yet what logical basis could there be to believe that only those who enter the country illegally are even potentially lawbreakers? I suppose there is just the vague unsupported assumption that a criminally-prone person would not ”go by the rules” in coming to this country. But what of those who come here via chain migration, as relatives of legal immigrants or legal residents of foreign birth? Or refugees? Are they vetted thoroughly, and as has been asked often, how can we vet people from third-world countries, where good public records are not kept, or not available?

Donald Trump has taken a lot of flak for saying that Mexicans commit a lot of rape in this country. Some sources, even the normally immigration-skeptical CIS, have argued that data shows immigrants commit less crime, but as is pointed out here, it isn’t that simple. The methods used in collecting data (including self-reporting, in many cases, by offenders) and the unwillingness of government departments to collect and collate such data means that even the government really has no definitive answers.

It’s simple common sense to look at the countries from which most of our immigrants come; are those countries high-crime, high-violence countries, reflecting cultures of that type? In the vast majority of cases, the answer is yes. Why, then, should those immigrating here suddenly become law-abiding and peaceable, when their countries are violent and dysfunctional, and in many cases, downright lawless? It requires a great deal of credulity to believe that people from countries where violence and crime are a way of life would suddenly become model neighbors here in the United States.

We are being misled by the media and by the powers-that-be, as in so many things.

Wikileaks on deleted e-mails

From Wikileaks latest, Hillary Clinton and her people deleted 33,000+ e-mails, knowing that it was illegal to do so.

This brings to mind the Nixon tapes during the Watergate hearings back in the 1970s, wherein the media treated as shocking the idea that Nixon’s secretary (on his orders, allegedly) purposely deleted parts of those tapes. All of 18 minutes of the tapes! Compare that to the potentially damning material in tens of thousands of e-mails. Notice the obvious difference in the way the media treats the two situations.

Hillary? Give her the benefit of the doubt, by all means. Maybe she wasn’t aware she was doing anything illegal — yes, she’s supposedly a brilliant woman, has been a ‘co-president’ with her reprobate ‘husband’, was supposedly a hot-shot  lawyer and an Ivy Leaguer with a high IQ but she didn’t know? Which is it? Brilliant woman, or simply ignorant of the law?

But Nixon and the missing 18 minutes? He was an evil, diabolical man who was obviously covering up some kind of serious wrongdoing.

And remember, the genius Hillary was one of those who was part of the Watergate investigation. It’s ironic that now she is caught doing the kind of thing for which Nixon was so reviled by the likes of Hillary and the leftist media. Does this fall under the heading of ‘karma’ to which the lefty New-Agers are always alluding? If so, then it’s fitting.
