  • PETER HITCHENS: The 'patriotic' thought police came for Corbyn. You are next

    Is THIS a warning? In the past few days I have begun to sense a dangerous and dark new intolerance in the air, which I have never experiences before. An unbidden instinct tells me to be careful what I say or write, in case it ends badly for me. How badly? That is the trouble. I am genuinely unsure. I have been to too many countries where free speech is dangerous. But I have always assumed that there was no real risk here. Now, several nasty trends have come together. The treatment of Jeremy Corbyn, both by politicians and many...

    ....Petőfi clearly asked: “Shall we be slaves or be free?” Everybody understood it, and everybody knew the answer for this. We have done a lot of things together in the last 30 years, lots of struggles, and memorable battles we fought together. But the greatest things we could achieve in our lifetime, the utmost battles that we could fight together, are still ahead of us. And by all signs, right now, just coming up. The situation, my dear friends, is: They want to take away our country! Not with a stroke of the pen, like they did 100 years ago...

    Hungarian leader Viktor Orbán issued a stark warning to the peoples of Europe on his country’s national day, telling them that “Europe is now under invasion”, and that “the empire of George Soros” is seeking to “break Hungary” for standing in its way. “The situation, Dear Friends, is that there are those who want to take our country from us,” said the conservative heavyweight, whose Fidesz party is heading into national elections in April. “Not with the stroke of a pen, has happened one hundred years ago at Trianon; now they want us to voluntarily hand our country over to...
  • Muslim groups bemoan lack of public outcry over string of mosque attacks [Germany]

    Islamic groups in Germany Thursday criticised a lack of solidarity and support over a spate of attacks on Muslims and mosques carried out by right-wing extremists and “terrorist” groups. They said Muslims were being made to feel that “they carry partial blame because, after their mosques have been desecrated by neo-Nazis using pig heads and graffiti of crosses, they are now also being attacked by foreign terrorist groups”. Last weekend saw a spate of arson and vandalism attacks targeting Turkish-German mosques, cultural institutions and businesses, some of which were claimed in online statements by militant pro-Kurdish groups angered by the...

    February 1. Foreign Office officials invited 1,800 female staff members to wear Islamic headscarves to mark World Hijab Day. The department gave away taxpayer-funded headscarves, claiming they symbolized "liberation, respect and security." Critics, citing the compulsory veiling of women in Islamic countries such as Iran and Saudi Arabia, said the garment is a symbol of male oppression. Tory MP Andrew Bridgen said, "I'd like to know whose bright idea this was. It is ridiculous, a complete waste of taxpayers' money and not the business of a government department. I can't see the Foreign Office promoting Christianity or the handing out...

    I have long believed that success leaves clues. It makes sense to pay attention to those clues in order to duplicate that success. When most of us think about Switzerland, we think of great cheese, fine chocolate, and excellent time pieces. They are also famous for their neutrality. Maybe we Americans should take a closer look. They do a number of things right and we might learn something from them. Yes, they make excellent cheese, chocolate and watches. They produce some pretty good wine as well. But, did you know that they spend 30% less than we do on...
  • Yarosh pondered the seizure of the Kuban and Voronezh

    The former head of the "Right Sector", the founder of the "Ukrainian Volunteer Army" Dmitry Yarosh said that Ukraine has the potential to seize a number of the territories of Russia. He said this on the air of ZIK TV. To win for Ukraine, according to Yarosh, it is necessary to clean up the Donbass and Crimea from the "anti-state element." "If we touch the Donbas, of course, it is the liberation of the territory and its cleansing from any destructive anti-state element. We must return the Crimea, of course, because without this victory there is no country at least...

    Citizen journalist and former leader of the English Defence League Tommy Robinson has released a video of himself defending his camera crew against an attempted attack by a migrant in Italy. Robinson — who was in the country covering the Italian elections — explains in his video that he wanted to document the area in which journalist Francesca Parisella of Matrix Channel 5 was attacked live on air in early 2017. “I tried to start digging deeper into Italy’s spate of high-profile, migrant attacks,” he tells the camera, before sharing the footage of what happened to him in the neighbourhood...

    A young Christian from Syria fled to Austria to escape persecution. When he arrived in Europe, he found himself forced into the company of “refugees” who supported the Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra. He had to keep his Christian faith a secret, or risk being killed. Eventually he returned to Syria, where he felt he was more likely to be safe. Anton, who translated the German video report below for subtitling, includes this introduction: A Christian Syrian refugee, Spiro Haddad, recalls his illegal journey to Austria. On the way, he is met by people who openly confide their allegiance to...

    [Transcript] When it comes to the ongoing wave of migrant rape and sexual assault in Europe the people I feel most sorry for are the refugee-friendly Progressive feminists because, when they get raped, they won't even know who to blame without being a racist. What am I saying... of course they will. They'll blame all men as usual while telling everybody else not to generalize. I hadn't intended to talk about this subject again for a while but it’s International Women’s Day so, how can I resist? You may know that a couple of recent videos of mine have been...
  • Hungary’s Prime Minister: We Need More Children and not Migrants

    Hungary’s Prime Minister, Viktor Orban, visited the town of Bicske on Sunday. The visit was part of his political campaign for the country’s elections next month. Orban spoke to the people of the town and said in a related Facebook message that “children are the most important” and Hungary “needs more children and not migrants”. The people of Bicske were told that if Orban’s Fidesz party can’t form a government with anti-immigration party KDNP, the refugee camp in the town could be reopened. Orban is known for being a hardliner against immigration and is a fierce opponent of the European...

    Italy has elected the first black senator in its history, it was announced on Tuesday, and he belongs to the anti-immigration League. Toni Iwobi, of Spirano in Lombardy, announced "with great emotion" on his Facebook page that he had been elected to the senate in Italy's general election. "After more than 25 years of fighting as part of the League's big family, I'm about to start another great adventure," Iwobi wrote, going on to thank leader Matteo Salvini and his other fellow party members. "I'm ready, friends," Iwobi said. Iwobi, 62, was born in Nigeria and came to Italy on...

    The New York Times has broken ranks with the the establishment media, publishing an effective mea culpa over the mainstream denial of migrant-related gang crime in Sweden. The paper — which previously mocked President Trump for highlighting Sweden’s migrant crime problems — published over 1,500 words on the subject in its Sunday edition this weekend, stating: Weapons from a faraway, long-ago war are flowing into immigrant neighborhoods here, puncturing Swedes’ sense of confidence and security. The country’s murder rate remains low, by American standards, and violent crime is stable or dropping in many places. But gang-related assaults and shootings are...

    The singer Katy Perry has unwittingly waded into Catalonia’s independence row with the announcement of her one and only concert in Spain this summer. Using a post on Instagram to create some hype ahead of sales of the gig she wrote: "Trust and believe I'm coming for you too Barcelona. See you June 28." But the announcement was accompanied by her image with a backdrop of the colours of Spain's national flag and the shield that appears on it. Although technically correct – Barcelona, is after all, still a part of Spain - it immediately provoked a backlash among those...

    A Swedish woman is facing two years of jail time for crime-think, which is not necessarily a bad thing, and I am talking about Sweden’s luxurious prisons ,which look more like high end tourist resorts, but also about Sharia law precepts, which forbid any criticism of Islam, especially from a woman. As usual, like almost every news that comes nowadays from that progressive paradise, the bastion of multiculturalism and cultural marxism that is feminist Sweden, today we learned that a former Christian country is now implementing what can be best described as Sharia soft. If you don’t know what I...

    Milton Friedman once said open borders and the welfare state are incompatible. This is easy to prove in California, where, according to a recent essay by Victor Davis Hanson, half of all immigrant households are on welfare and the state accounts for a third of the nation's welfare recipients with only 12% of its population, even as 20% of California's population lives below the poverty line. Recent figures published in Europe's economic powerhouse, Germany, indicate that following Angela Merkel's disastrous open-borders experiment of two and a half years ago, that country is well on its way to joining California in...

    American activists hijack Bannon's Zurich visit to raise money for gun safetyA group of Americans in Switzerland is using Steve Bannon’s first public speaking engagement in Europe to raise funds for gun violence prevention. Bannon, US President Donald Trump’s former right hand man and co-founder of far-right US news site Breitbart, will speak in Zurich on March 6th. The former White House Chief Strategist has repeatedly warned Trump against backing gun control, even after the mass shooting in Las Vegas in which 59 people died and 515 were injured. Now campaign group Action Together: Zurich, is turning Bannon’s appearance in...
