Italy: Another 450 Migrants Land at Lampedusa Amid Protests

Hat tip Vlad Tepes, RAIR Foundation, and Gates of Vienna

In the past 24 hours, another 450 migrants were brought by boat into Lampedusa. The reception facilities are overflowing, and the citizens have had enough. They are protesting against their government and pleading with them to stop bringing in more migrants. "We are dying!" say the people.

The below video was translated by Fousesquawk.

Fousesquawk comment: This is such a shame for the people of Lampedusa, who are bearing the brunt of this insane policy coming out of the EU in Brussels and the present Italian government in Rome. When Matteo Salvini was interior minister, he did everything he could to stop these landings-to the point of being indicted by an out of control prosecutor in Sicily for kidnapping! Now he is gone and the landings have resumed in spite of the covid virus. What is the humanitarian crisis when the vast majority of migrants are unaccompanied, healthy young men in their 20s? The humanitarian crisis is when these men go on looting, assaulting, raping, and murdering sprees-often in the name of  jihad. The humanitarian crisis is allowing this human traffic to continue, with many drowning in the Mediterranean or being taken as slaves while transiting Libya. The  humanitarian crisis is native Europeans being robbed, raped, murdered and afraid to walk their own streets. The humanitarian crisis is when you see European Jews emigrating by the thousands to escape the attacks on the streets by Muslim newcomers who bring a centuries-old hatred of Jews with them. The humanitarian crisis is governments importing more covid-affected people into their countries, which are struggling to take care of their own population. Italy is a prime example.

What madness!

Portland: "Mostly Peaceful Protesters" Shoot and Kill Man During Riot

"The people of Portland won’t put up with no safety any longer. The Mayor is a FOOL. Bring in the National Guard!"
-President Trump

The mayhem continues in Portland. To those who still  believe the lies of the media that these are mostly peaceful protesters, the  rioting in Portland has claimed another victim. A man described as a supporter or member of a group called Patriot Prayer was shot and killed last night during the nightly festivities going on in that troubled city. Patriot Prayer is a group that has previously clashed with Antifa and Black Lives Matter. is posting a video which apparently shows the shooting in question.

Meanwhile, the city's feckless mayor, Ted Wheeler (D) has rightfully come under attack by President Trump, who calls on Oregon's Democrat leaders to request the National Guard.

Spain: Migrants Riot at Reception Center in Melilla

Hat tip Vlad Tepes and Gates of Vienna. Translation by Fousesquawk.

Like most other Western European countries, Spain is having a myriad of problems handing the ever-increasing number of migrants. This week, migrants (mostly North African/Maghreb) at the reception center at Melilla (which is a Spanish enclave located on the North African coast with Morocco) experienced a riot by inmates complaining of overcrowding and demanding transfer to the Spanish mainland. The below video news report from Faro TV in Melilla is translated by Fousesquawk.

Some members of the Parliament hooted her when she referred to the gang rape of a 12-year-old girl by 5 Moroccans and 1 Nigerian. Critics also blasted her for referring to "multi-cultural dung heaps" like the Molenbeek section of Brussels (which it is).

Arson at Jewish Center at University of Delaware

Hat tip Legal Insurrection

How many times have I said that the focal point for the resurgence in anti-Semitism in America is on our university campuses? So it should come as no surprise, given today's climate, that a Jewish center (Chabad House) was set on fire on the night of August 25 at the University of Delaware. Authorities are calling it arson, but not calling it a hate crime as yet. (I am taking bets.)

I  guess to make it an official hate crime, you have to have suspects and information that leads to a motive. Like I said, however, I am taking bets.

This message from university president, Dennis Assanis is posted on the university website.

Blue Hens from across the country are rallying in support of the University of Delaware’s Chabad Center for Jewish Life after a fire late Tuesday nigh...

I have checked the campus newspaper, The Review, but there are no articles written after August 20. They may be shut down for the semester or not publishing daily. Thus, there is nothing appearing about the fire as yet.

Let us hope that this despicable crime is solved.

Sweden: Shocking New Development in Assault-Rape Case in Solna

Suspects allegedly tried to bury boys alive in a pit

This week we have reported on yet another shocking assault case out of Sweden allegedly committed by immigrant youths against Swedish boys.

Now, as if that wasn't sickening enough, the Daily Mail (UK), quoting the Swedish daily, Aftonbladet, reports that after beating, raping, and cutting the boys' legs so that they could not escape, the hoodlums actually attempted to bury them alive in an open pit.

Below is the Aftonbladet link quoted by Daily Mail. Portions dealing with the burying alive aspect are translated by Fousesquawk.

Information: Boys buried alive- in a pit

New information on the night of terror in the Solna cemetery

During the night of torture in the Solna cemetery, the victims were also buried alive in a pit, according to information to Aftonbladet

At one point during the night, the two underage youths were forced to undress, (forced) down into a pit in the ground, and the burial of them began, sources tell Aftonbladet.


We are preparing an English-language video report of this awful incident. It is hoped that maybe-just maybe- this will awaken the Swedish government from its slumber.

"Honor"-Killing Suspect Captured After 12 Years

Mugshot of Yaser

Yaser Abdel Said, 63, an Egyptian-born taxi driver, has been arrested in northern Texas. He is charged in the 2008 "honor" murders of his two daughters, which occurred in Irving, Texas, near Dallas. Said allegedly shot his two teenage daughters to death because they had become Westernized and dated non-Muslim boys.

Hopefully, justice will now finally be served, and the point will be made that  there is no honor in murdering your daughters-at least in this country.

Wildlife and Racial Oppression

Hat tip Legal Insurrection

"We draw on existing research to link racist practices – including residential segregation – to the observed heterogeneous patterns of flora and fauna observed by urban ecologists. As a result, urban ecology and evolution researchers must consider how systems of racial oppression affect the environmental factors driving biological change in cities."

I would say, "You can't make this up, but somebody did. That would be a bunch of ecology professors writing in Science Magazine about the nexus between urban wildlife and racial oppression. Dr William Jacobson of the Cornell Law School has pointed this absurdity out in his blog, Legal Insurrection. Jacobson is already under fire for  his criticism of Black Lives Matter.

I am reminded of that anonymous reader who commented to me this week that I should sit back, relax, and let the academics work their magic. This truly is magic.

Anti-Semitism in Austria

Hat tip Gates of Vienna, RAIR Foundation and Vlad Tepes

A few days ago, we reported on the assault on a Jewish leader and his synagogue by a Syrian migrant in the Austrian city of Graz. In reaction to the incident, Gerald Grosz, an Austrian politician for the BZÖ (Bündnis Zukunft Österreich, Alliance for the Future of Austria) and the FPÖ (Freiheitliche Partei Österreichs, Austrian Freedom Party), has made a short video about the re-introduction of Jew hatred into Austria.

In 1938, Austria's government was forced to give in to Hitlers annexation of the country in what came to be called, the Anschluss. Millions of Austrians welcomed the Nazis enthusiastically. The persecution of Jews began immediately.  Many Austrian Nazis played central roles in the Holocaust.

Now, all these years later, Austria has once again opened its doors to the new Nazis. The question now is whether we will start to see an exodus of Jews from Austria as we have seen in France and Sweden.

Sweden: Two Wanted Held in Custody for Kidnap and Torture of Boys in Cemetery

Is this another one of those "humiliation crimes"?

Hat tip Samnytt and Kronans Martell


Recently, we have been reporting on what appears to be a new phenomenon in Sweden. These are so-called "humiliation crimes", where young Swedish boys are attacked by packs of immigrant youths and not only beaten and robbed, but often forced to undergo humiliating abuse including sexual assault.

One recent case involved a group of young African  teenagers who kidnapped an 18-year-old Swedish boy, robbed him, beat him, and even urinated on him.

This weekend, two Swedish boys were grabbed by a pack of immigrant youths who took them to a cemetery, beat them, robbed them, forced them to undress, and sexually assaulted them. Two young men have been identified and  pre-trial custody has been requested

The below article by Samnytt is translated by Fousesquawk.

Two men wanted  held in custody for torture assault on boys in Solna

Two men are wanted held in custody for the torture-like assault on two boys in the Norra Cemetery in Solna north of Stockholm this past weekend. The men are 18 and 21 years old respectively, have a non-Western immigrant background, and are well known to the police for earlier crimes.

It was about 11 pm on Saturday that two boys were kidnapped and taken to the cemetery, where they were forced to undress naked and were subjected to aggravated, protracted, abusive assault, sexual abuse, and aggravated robbery.

Two men were arrested shortly after the incident, and detention custody has been requested for probable cause  on the higher grade of suspicion for kidnapping, aggravated assault, rape, and aggravated robbery. 

Both (suspects) have non-Western immigrant backgrounds but are Swedish citizens. They are well-known to police and social services. The 18-year-old was earlier prosecuted for theft, while the 21-year-old has been convicted for, among others, arson, unlawful driving, drunk driving, several narcotic offenses, and theft. Why the 21-year-old has not yet begun to serve his sentence for arson last summer of one year-six months in prison is not clear. 

The motive for the crime is still not clear as well as to what relationship, if any, the victims and perpetrators had to each other.


This does appear to fit into the category of humiliation crimes in which these young immigrant hoodlums are showing their disdain for Swedish people in general. It is a shame because I don't think that speaks to all immigrants in Sweden even among the "problem" groups (Middle East and Africa).

Western European governments are largely responsible. Whether they wanted to be a more culturally diverse society, needed manual labor, wanted to  keep their population levels from declining, or just wanted to help refugees (and phony refugees), the immigration experiment has failed.

For one thing, the Europeans only caught on late in the game-after several years- to the idea of  assimilation. It was enough that they had workers to do the jobs educated Europeans would not do, retreat to their ghettos, and do whatever they wanted. Only in recent years have the Europeans stressed the need for immigrants to learn the language, respect the values and traditions of that country, and assimilate. For all too many, it is too late.

They also picked the wrong countries to bring people in from. They should have known decades ago that Muslim immigrants were going to resist many of the freedoms that were being practiced. They should have known that certain immigrants would refuse to assimilate into the open and free societies that they were coming to.  Now, with militant Islam on the march, those neighborhoods where immigrants settled have become no-go zones.

And how are Western European governments responding to all this? The migrants, refugees, or whatever they are, keep coming one way or another, overwhelmingly young men of military age. Nobody has any idea who these people are or how old they are. Many of these men in their 20s have learned to lie about their age-say they are minors- so that sentences for their crimes will be lessened. Sweden is a classic example. The result of all this is mass crime, rapes, murders, terror attacks, and robberies-not to mention the spread of Covid-19. The police and border services are simply  overwhelmed.

Most Europeans are aware of the American expression, "the Old Wild West" and what it refers to. I have heard many European joking use that expression. I imagine many are now using it to refer to Portland, Seattle, Chicago and other American cities that are going up in flames. But make no mistake: The Wild West has come to Europe as well. And on both continents, it is time to send in the cavalry.

*Update: The Swedish news outlet Aftonbladet reports that two boys are in custody, ages 18 and 21 as described in the Samnytt article. In addition, the ordeal allegedly lasted about 10 hours. The conservative Swedish outlet, Fria Tider, identifies the two suspects as being Tunisian and Iranian.

We are trying to get some Swedish video translated, and we will hopefully be able to post it.

UC Irvine's Black Thriving Initiative

                                                                                                    "Working my magic"

A few days ago, I wrote an article on  George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement. I received the below comment from an anonymous reader referring me to the latest endeavor at UC Irvine. I copy it below.

 Anonymous said.


Mr. Fouse, it's time that you realize that the universities will fix the problem, and in this context I would refer you to your former institution, UC Irvine.

By radicalizing young students, the universities will erase all forms of racism in the elite, who will run our country in the future.
Sit back, relax, and let the academics work their magic.

I also copy my response to Anonymous:

Dear Anonymous (Whoever you are, though I can guess),
Thank you for sending me that link, or I would never have known that UCI was now engaging in another silly, politically-correct endeavor that will accomplish nothing.

First of all, there is no anti-blackness at UCI or any other university. Anti-Semitism, you bet, but UCI has ignored that problem for over 20 years now.

Your programs will never address the real problems facing black America by simply going after the big, white boogey man. I agree with black conservatives like Larry Elder, who say that the biggest problem facing black America is not white racism, rather an out-of-wedlock birth rate that is now over 70%. It was about 25% in the worst days of Jim Crow. Why is that?

As for universities fixing the problem and working their magic, I have seen that up close and personal from my 18 years teaching part time at UCI. It is universities who have helped create the problem. Universities have worked their magic by convincing every person who is a minority that they are a victim and can't make it on their own. The universities have worked their magic by turning students against Jews in favor of the radical pro-Palestinian mobs. Universities have worked their magic by convincing students that America is a racist, imperialistic, colonialist endeavor. I have always maintained that when I was a child in the 50s and 60s, America was racist-but not now. No other society would have worked so hard to undo the wrongs of the past.

But you said it yourself- universities are radicalizing students. That may have worked well in the USSR, Nazi Germany or present-day Iran, but not in our country. We have the laws, the Constitution, and the infra-structure to correct injustices without resorting to radicalism on either side.

I will, however, take your challenge and make a post out of your comment and your link. At the same time, I challenge you to bring speakers like Elder, Thomas Sowell, Candace Owens or other black conservative to speak at UCI, but you won't of course unless conservative student groups do it for you, and then they can expect to be disrupted because that's what universities condition them to do.

Sit back and relax? No.

I also challenge you to affix your name to what you write if you really believe in what you say. I sign my name to everything I write. You don't have to, of course, but it would greatly enhance your credibility.
Enough said. I eagerly await a response from Anonymous.

Italy: Dhimmitude in Apulia

Apulia, Italy:Waiting to be conquered

It appears the dhimmis in the Apulian (Puglia in Italian) region of Southern Italy are attempting to draw in Islamic tourists. In order to do that, the local officials are willing to "Islamicize themselves". Standing in opposition are Italy's two biggest opposition figures, Matteo Salvini of the Lega party and Giorgia Meloni of Fratelli d'Italia (Brothers of Italy).

The below article from Il Giornale is translated by Fousesquawk.

Apulia (Puglia), the priority of Emiliano: Money for "Islamic tourism"

The Apulia region of Emiliano (Pd) has published a notice to finance the tourist structure, which "removes Christian symbols" and becomes Muslim friendly: "That's how we make ourselves Islamicized".
-Luca Sablone-8-24-20

A series of initiatives that permits the Apulia territory to open itself to the opportunity of tourism close to the Islamic world: This is the intent of the project, "Muslim friendly", promoted in the  Apulian region as part of the program, "Destination Apulia" and carried out with the Apulia Public Theater and Apulia Promotions.

A public announcement was created for "the presentation of proposals finalized as to the definition of the plan of promotion of the Apulia tourism offer, 'Muslim Friendly'". In that way, while our country has to deal with the drastic economic consequences  caused by the Corona virus emergency, the left extends its hand to Islamic tourism. Evidently, (this) represents a priority in respect to the needs of the Italians.

The public announcement provides a comprehensive budget of 90,000 Euros, IVA (value added tax) included for promotional projects which have to be accomplished between October 1 and November 18, 2020; at the same time, they must include overnight stays, guided tours, tourist packages, and catering. Stop, however. There is a principle condition to be respected: One must take into account,"the particular needs of the Muslim tourists, who, according to recent research in the sector are constantly growing in numbers, as well as having peculiarities which make them also qualitatively very interesting for the Apulian territory".

"We will Islamicize ourselves"

It all has been denounced by Georgia Meloni, who on her own social profile, has taken note of the notice (click here to read it) by which the tourist structures are to be financed "which remove Christian symbols", becoming 'Muslim friendly', and make themselves more welcoming to Muslims. Among the provisions, separate pools between men and women (but haven't genders been abolished by the left?), baby-sitters,  and personnel dressed appropriately (no mini-dress, better in burqa), and a series of other embarrassing rules. All in all, we pay with public resources to Islamicize ourselves," was the harsh comment from the leader of Fratelli d'Italia (Brothers of Italy party).

Matteo Salvini via Twitter:

"Effectively a priority....Given the multiplication of landings of small boats, barges, and even sailing ships on the most beautiful coasts of Salento, I would say we are on a good path....Poor Apulia, this left is a disgrace: On September 20-21, we will send them home. Are you with us?"

Each project proposal included in the "Muslim Friendly" Apulia Promotion Plan will be acquired by TPP for a minimum (fee) equal to 3,000 euros (including tax) up to a maximum of 10,000 euros (including tax). The notice has provoked a reaction also from Matteo Salvini; the leader of the League (party) has provided an ironic explanation taking into consideration the explosion of landings that continues to impact Italy. "Effectively a priority....Given the multiplication of landings of small boats, barges, and even sailing ships on the most beautiful coasts of Salento, I would say we are on a good path....Poor Apulia, this left is a disgrace: On September 20-21, we will send them home. Are you with us?", wrote the ex-interior minister. In the evening, after the polemics, the Apulian Public Theater decided to withdraw the Muslim Friendly notice, explaining that the notice "must be submitted to the regional council for evaluation."

This was apparently placed by some sick neo-Nazi group. I perused their website, and it's pretty sick stuff all around. They think Hitler was a great man. Enough said.

Of course, cowards who put up trash like this don't have the balls to stand in place and stand up for their twisted beliefs. No, they probably put it up in the dead of night and scurried away like the cockroaches they are.

France: The Desecration of a Somber Site-Oradours-sur-Glane

France has been suffering the loss or damage to many of its most sacred landmarks in the past several months. First, it was Notre Dame in Paris. Next it was the fire in the cathedral at Nantes, a confirmed case of arson. Now it's the desecration of a welcome center at the martyred village of Oradour-sur-Glane.

You need to know the history of Oradour-sur-Glane to truly appreciate the outrage that occurred Saturday. In June 1944, a German SS division occupied the village and took the entire population as prisoners. The men were locked into barns, which were set on fire. Those trying to escape were machined gunned. The women and children were locked in the village church, which was also set on fire. Six hundred and forty two people died. The entire village was razed and left in ruins.

After the war, it was decided to leave the ruins in place as a memorial.

So yesterday, person(s) unknown entered the village and put graffiti on the entrance center. In place of "martyrs", which was x-ed out, the word, "liars" was substituted. The message they wanted to leave was that the massacre was some sort of hoax.

The below article from France TV is translated by Fousesquawk. We are hoping to sub-title a news video of the incident as well.

Graffiti denying the holocaust has been found at a memorial center in a village in central France, according to the mayor of Oradour-sur-Glane, Philippe Lacroix.

Oradour-sur-Glane: The martyred village desecrated

On June 10 1944, 642 men, women, and children were massacred at Oradour-sur-Glane. 76 years after the event, a symbol of Nazi barbarity, the martyred village was desecrated Saturday, 22 August, and an investigation has been opened.

A tarpaulin to cover the words of shame. This night, the facade of the memorial center of Oradour-sur-Glane has been desecrated. The word, "martyr" was replaced by the word, "liar", accompanied by the name of a militant  denier. " I don't understand. I hope that the persons who did this will be severely punished," stated a resident. "To hear that story (misrepresented) again is unbearable," castigated Philippe Lacroix, mayor DVD of the town.

"Nothing can make (us) forget the memory," of the martyrs

On June 10, 1944, the village in (Department) Haute-Vienne was assaulted by an SS division.  The Nazis locked the men in barns and machine-gunned them. The also imprisoned women and children is the church of Oradour prior to burning it. 642 persons perished in the massacre. This afternoon, the president of the Republic denounced the desecration, stating that, "Nothing can make us forget the memory of our 642 martyrs of Oradour-sur-Glane."

Fousesquawk comment:  We don't know who did this, and I won't even speculate at this point. I just hope that whoever did it is caught. This is a truly despicable act against a sacred memorial. There a lot of sick and evil people running around this world today. They are trying conquer us. We cannot let them.

Austria: Synagogue Attacked in Graz

(Bild: Landespolizeidirektion Steiermark, Krone KREATIV)
-Photos Kronen Zeitung (Austria)

This week, a Jewish leader, his synagogue and other locations were attacked by the above-pictured individual in Graz, Austria. Police are actively searching for the suspect, who also broke windows at a local bordello (prostitution is legal in Austria), and sprayed pro-Palestinian slogans on building walls. The below article is translated by Fousesquawk.

Spread all over Graz

Synagogue- Attacker carried out further attacks

In the shocking case of the attack on Elie Rosen and the Graz Synagogue, further details have come to light. The Graz police informed Am Sonntag that the suspect, thus far, is believed to have committed 7 criminal acts in the city area.  The man who is being searched for at full speed, is under strong suspicion, also of having attacked a RosaLila Panthers clubhouse and  thrown rocks at a bordello  on Grenadier Street, where he also is said to have mocked prostitutes.

In addition, according to the police, the man committed further acts of vandalism in the city area of Graz, where he, among other things, sprayed pro-Palestinian slogans on house walls on the Annen Street and near the main train station.  Window panes at the bordello on Grenadier Street were broken as a result of rocks being thrown.

Big wave of support

Already on Saturday and Sunday, a large wave of support formed in solidarity with the Jewish community in Austria and other victims. In the Steiermark, the governor, Hermann Schützenhöfer, and the mayor of Graz Siegfried Nagl (both ÖVP) as well as their representatives, stood "shoulder to shoulder" and condemned the attacks in the sharpest terms.

Elie Rosen: "I am coming to terms with it"

Rosen said on the day after the  assault on him:  "I believe that every physical attack, even when there are no physical results, have  a thoroughly psychological impact. I would lie if I said I was relaxed. I am coming to terms with it." The Jewish community and he will not let themselves get down.

Protection for Rosen half hour too late

In respect to the accusations that the Graz police acted too late, the authorities made clear at a press conference on Sunday that increased protection for the synagogue is already in effect. To have such a guard around the clock, a longer lead time and planning time are needed. Personal protection for Elie Rosen should have been started a half hour after the attack.

Police set up an investigation team

On Sunday, police set up an investigation team, in order to arrest the suspect as quickly as possible. Land police director Gerald Ortner said that the perpetrator may have attacked the synagogue for the first time on Wednesday. He explained that,"it is not just an anti-Semitic perpetrator, but also a homophobic one."

On Sunday, images of the video surveillance (camera) were publicized, in which the suspect can be recognized. In all, 7 crimes are attributed to the perpetrator. 

For information as to the identity of the person, please contact the journal service of the State Office for the Protection of the Constitution and Combating Terrorism: 059 133/60 8333.

* Update (8-24-20) The Jerusalem Post reports that police have arrested a 26-year-old Syrian refugee for the attack. The below link also gives more details on how Mr Rosen was attacked.

The George Floyd Case and Black Lives Matter

This article first appeared in New English Review.

As our election draws near, race relations are going to be an issue, largely due to the George Floyd death in Minneapolis and the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, which along with Antifa, is increasingly resorting to violence and hate. Here are some of the more recent developments:

George Floyd's autopsy had reported shortly after his death that the cause of his death was not asphyxiation, rather cardiac-pulmonary  arrest brought on in conjunction with the arrest struggle.  We subsequently viewed additional videotape of the incident which indicated that officers acted properly at least until the point that officer Derek Chauvin placed his knee on Floyd's neck for several minutes. Floyd, indeed, was resisting arrest and officers were trying to get him into the patrol car. That was the point that he stated he had claustrophobia and that he "couldn't breathe".

Now toxicology reports have come back that indicate that Floyd died of a cardiac-pulmonary arrest likely due to the large amounts of drugs in his system including the deadly Fentanyl. He already was suffering from severe heart disease and was using multiple drugs. What that does is put the impending trial (s) of the four indicted officers in question. I, along with millions of others, was deeply troubled by the tactic which we believed had caused his death. The neck is a sensitive part of the body, where injuries can lead to death, and choking type methods should be reserved for situations where the officers is fighting for his life. Yet, the toxicology report states that Floyd died of cardiac-pulmonary arrest brought on by the amount of drugs in his system and his prior heart condition-both of which were exacerbated by the struggle with police, which he necessitated by his resistance, but that there were no physical injuries suffered which would have caused death.

Now it appears that Chauvin will maintain that he wasn't exerting much pressure with his knee-just enough to keep him in place, and the scientific reports will apparently back him up. Brace yourselves for excitement. However this trial ends up, there will be a lot of people who will feel that justice was not served.

That leads us to Black Lives Matter (and Antifa, who should never be left out of the conversation.). BLM is responsible for some, if not most of the violence we saw erupting in the initial demonstrations.Yes, there were peaceful demonstrators protesting the shocking video and the death of Floyd. It was people like BLM and Antifa who took advantage of the protests to wreak havoc behind the peaceful protesters.

Now the violence has simmered down somewhat, but we are still seeing images of on-going violence in Portland as well as a few other cities. Our biased news media can refer to Portland as "mostly peaceful protesters" all they want, but that is now a distortion of fact. Portland is now anarchists attacking the federal building in Portland. The face of Portland is now some character named Marquise Love charged with the horrifying attack against a defenseless white man, kicking him in the head and knocking him unconscious.

This has nothing to do with George Floyd.

Similarly, when BLM protesters in St Louis  break through a gate into a gated community and threaten residents, we have seen a white couple chase them off with weapons-only to be indicted by the local DA. (The charges were dismissed by the Missouri AG.)

Similarly, we have seen BLM  demonstrators march to a largely white neighborhood in Seattle and demand that the white residents surrender their homes to blacks.

This is no longer about George Floyd; this is about anarchy, insurrection, and trying to inflame racial tensions. And they are being inflamed. The web is full of reports of the execution-style slaying of a 5-year-old white boy in North Carolina, shot in the head on his bike by a black man. Why? Because the boy was sitting on his bike on the man's lawn. People across the web are asking why this incident is not getting wider coverage in the media. Of course, we know the answer.

And herein lies another danger, which I sense is already happening. A lot of people are starting to develop more negative attitudes about black people as they discuss these issues. But that would be just as big a mistake as BLM activists and their white leftist supporters in academia claiming that all white people are inherently racist and privileged. That is no more true than the idea that all black people are shooting 5-year-old white kids to death. We have to resist the temptation to believe the worst in other people. Unfortunately, we are headed in that direction.

I still maintain that while America was certainly racist when I was a boy, it is not racist today. We have racial problems and there are many people in the inner cities who, for whatever reason, got left behind in the Civil Rights era.

I don't have the answers to these problems, but I still feel, perhaps, naively, that all we can do as ordinary  people is simply to treat each other with friendliness and respect. The government is not going to fix the problem. Reparations will not fix the problem. Washing the feet of black people will not fix the problem. I am not willing to do that, but I am willing to treat everybody with equal respect. That is all the ordinary citizen can do.

But first, we have an order of business, and for that, we have to look to the government. We need these anarchists of whatever color to be arrested and prosecuted. Then we can get back to the business of improving our society.

Sweden: Knife Attack on Elderly Woman

Among all the attacks upon European natives in Western European countries by migrants from the Middle East And Africa, there is now a disturbing increase in attacks upon the elderly. This week we reported on one such case in Valencia, Spain*. Now we have a similar report from Stockholm, where a woman in her 60s was stabbed and robbed. The attacker is as yet unidentified, but he allegedly expressed a hatred toward white women during the attack.

* The suspect in the Valencia case has been reported to be from Northern Africa (Maghreb) as well as from Rumania. It is not yet clear.

A woman in her 60s has stab wounds in  Södermalm in Stockholm. The suspected perpetrator is now being sought by police.

During the attack, the man is said to have expressed hatred toward white women, according to information received by Aftonbladet.

The alarm concerning the incident came in at 12:11 (pm) on Friday. A woman had been attacked by a man in Södermalm in Stockholm. Police confirm that the crime happened outdoors and that a man attempted to (take) the belongings of a woman and then wounded her with a bladed weapon.

A knife has also been found at the crime scene. "It is possible that we have the weapon, but there is no concrete information," says Carinas Skagerlind at the police command center. The woman has injuries on her upper body and was taken to the hospital. The injuries were initially judged to be serious but not life-threatening.

The suspected perpetrator has not yet been arrested  but is being sought by police. During the attack, the man is said to have expressed hatred toward white women. An investigation, into attempted murder has been initiated. Police have held a series of witness interrogations with people who may have seen something and are also investigating whether there is video material from the incident. A technical investigation will take place during the day.

Netherlands: Anti-Gay Violence in Asylum Centers

Translation by Fousesquawk.

According to a gay activist group in the Netherlands, there is an on-going problem of violence against gays in Dutch refugee asylum centers The below article is by Bart Reijmerink in Dagelijkse Standaard dated August 21, 2020.

Fiery letter to the state secretary: Homosexual-related violence in asylum center is hardly addressed"

Sandro Kortekaas, chairman of LGBT  Asylum Support, has written a  fiery letter to state secretary Broekers-Noed. According to Kortekaas, hardly anything is done against anti-homosexual violence in asylum centers.  Since June there have been 60 reports, but hardly anything is done,says Kortekaas. There must be a change here, says  the chairman of LGBT Asylum Support..

Kortekaas is quite clear: There is no other solution than separate asylum centers for LGBT refugees. He made this known in a fiery letter to the state secretary.

"Since June we have gotten 60 reports of violence against LHBTI's in asylum centers. We have forwarded them to a hot line, but we have not heard anything further."

Kortekaas has been involved in his crusade since 2016. But an important question must be asked. Are separate LHBT-asylum centers the solution? If these asylum centers come, then it means that the anti-homosexual mob is still in the Netherlands with big results in the long term. The anti-homosexual sentiment will remain among these people, and it is this that must be tackled. Separate asylum centers are a temporary solution, but ultimately don't  cure the disease.

"We have been in discussion with the state secretary since 2016 on the subject of separate units for LHBTI-asylum-seekers. Because that works, especially for transgenders. We want every asylum center to be required to have such a unit," says Kortekaas. " We don't understand why there is still no policy that each asylum  center be required to have an LHBTI unit. We have reached rock bottom."

55 Years for Brother of Manchester Bomber

Jihad in Manchester

Hashem Abedi has been sentenced by a British court to 55 years in prison for his role in the Manchester bombing in 2017 that killed 22 people. The bombing was actually carried out by his brother, Salman Abedi, but Hashem helped build the bomb. ISIS claimed responsibility.

Bill Clinton at the DNC

In case this story has escaped your attention (because the media won't report it), here is another one of the star-studded cast of speakers at this week's DNC convention-none other than Bill Clinton. This is from the British tabloid, Daily Mail. It concerns Bill and one of his trips on Jeffrey Epstein's Lolita Express.

Note: There is no accusation of sexual impropriety here. The young woman in question, Chauntae Davies, was of age at the time (22), she states that nothing happened, and that Bill was a perfect gentlemen. However, the woman is a central figure and accuser in the Epstein case. At the least, this story concerns the questionable relationship between the former president, Epstein, and his notorious plane.

Bill Clinton is seen enjoying a neck massage from a Jeffrey Epstein victim in never-before-seen photographs obtained exclusively by Clinton sits comfortably and laughs as Chauntae Davies, then a 22-year-old massage therapist, rubs her hands into his shoulders

Thank God this convention isn't live.

California Governor Signs Ethnic Studies Bill Into Law

Hat tip Algemeiner

We have been following the controversy over the proposed ethnic studies bill (AB1460) which was up for Governor Gavin Newsom's signature. The bill had been opposed by several Jewish organizations who had urged Newsom not to sign it. On Monday, Newsom signed it.

Newsom's signing of this bill is disappointing for reasons I and others have already outlined. It is hardly surprising, however.

Jihadist Car Attack in Berlin

Yesterday, German police arrested a 30-year-old Iraqi man after he plowed his car in to other traffic on a Berlin highway. Police say the man was shouting, "Allahu Akhbar" when he was arrested, which in Arabic means, "Why did you stop me, Officer?"

Die Welt reports that the man is an asylum-seeker whose request fro asylum has been rejected.

Fousesquawk's inside sources say the vehicle was registered to Angela Merkel.

Just kidding.

The Jill and Joe Show at the DNC: Something's Not Right Here

I'm not much for gossip and I don't believe in judging other people's sex lives. Something about "don't judge lest ye be judged". But watching the DNC "convention" tonight, there is something that isn't ringing right here. I just got finished watching all this soapy, over-dramatic recitation of Joe Biden's life. I watched Joe and Jill tell us how they met on a blind date 7 years after Biden tragically lost his first wife and infant daughter in an automobile accident. That's all well and good. It is heartwarming that after such a tragedy, Biden was able to restart a relationship and a family.


Today, Jill Biden's first husband, Bill Stevenson, has gone public and announced that Joe actually stole Jill from him-that they (Joe and Jill) began an affair when Jill was still married to him. In fact, he is writing a book to that effect.

I will reiterate here that I am not judging the Bidens on this, and I will say that if that is true, it shouldn't disqualify Biden from being president. We all know President Trump has a bit of history in his own marriages. So, as far as I am concerned, if Jill Biden really dumped her first husband for Joe, it is no big deal.

But for God's sake, if this is true, we have another Biden whopper on our hands that puts all his past whoppers to shame. This story has been out for at least several hours, and yet, the DNC still ran this long (I assume pre-recorded) puff-piece tonight about the Bidens meeting on a  blind date in 1975-three years after Stevenson says he and Jill-then married- first met Biden. According to Stevenson, it was 1974 that he learned that his pal, Joe, was having an affair with his wife.

                                                                                     "That's a big f-----' deal."

It appears that come tomorrow, someone has some explaining to do. Again, to be fair, maybe it will come out that Stevenson is not telling the truth. But if he is, then that video we saw tonight of Joe and Jill describing how they met is a great big lie. It should not be hard to find out who is telling the truth.

*Update: True to form, even this morning, the mainstream media seems to be ignoring the story. It's running on conservative sites, the Washington Examiner, and British tabloids. Here's the politically-correct BBC today.

Red Flags in Thailand

King Vajiralongkorn (with his official consort)

There is an interesting story coming out of Thailand this week, where there was a large demonstration by students. What is really worrisome is one of the things they were protesting.

I happened to live in Bangkok from 1975-1978, a decade that was full of political turbulence. Students were often at the center of the turbulence. I experienced two coups/attempted coups while living in Thailand.

It is one thing to protest against the government, but quite another to criticize the royal family though in theory, the king doesn't rule politically. The institution of the royal family is greatly revered in Thailand, and the country has a severe lese majeste law, which calls for imprisonment up to 15 years. Due to the strict legal and cultural rules regarding the royal family, the Thai media is handling the current protest very carefully. To get a full accounting of the current protests you need to go to foreign sources.

Here is how ABC News is reporting the student protests, which include a demand that the power and influence of the royal family be reduced. It comes as Vajiralongkorn, predictably, seeks to increase his power.

Below is how two English-language newspapers in Thailand are reporting it. Note that the Bangkok Post has no mention of the royal family aspect while The Nation mentions it rather gingerly.

During my time in Thailand, the king was Phumiphol Adulyadej. For over 60 years, he reigned until his death in 2016. He was greatly loved by the Thai people, and for good reason. He did a lot for the country over the course of his reign.

King Phumiphol

His son and successor, Vajiralongkorn, is another matter. It is an open secret in Thailand that the new king is a playboy. Currently, with his country dealing with the Covid virus, he spends most of his time living in a luxury hotel in the Bavarian Alps in Germany  with a retinue of security and some 20 women. He is there now.

Actually, being a playboy is the least of the problems for Vajiralongkorn. There are more serious transgressions alleged against him over the years starting when he was a young crown prince. Most have been whispered about secretly by Thais. There is one allegation that I will not repeat here because it is unconfirmed. However, I got it from a very reliable source.

During the coup of 1976, student protests featured a horrific episode of violence and murder that resulted from students hanging then-Crown Prince Vajiralongkorn in effigy, something that would never have been done with Phumiphol.  I vividly recall the gruesome photo in the Bangkok Post showing a lynched student hanging from a tree while a man  was beating his already unrecognizable face with a chair.

It has long been speculated that upon the passing of Phumiphol, Thailand might explode upon the succession of Vajiralongkorn. Many would have preferred to see one of the princesses (Sirindhorn) be the next in line because, like her father, she worked very hard for her people while her brother was partying.  According to the laws of succession, however, it was Vajiralongkorn, the only son, who took the throne.

The institution of the royal family is very important to the culture and the stability of Thailand. It could never be expected that Vajiralongkorn would command the same respect as his father. These latest protests could be a warning.

The Latest Outrage From Portland

Hat tip Legal Insurrection

What is happening in Portland and other cities is past the point of saying, "Enough is enough"! Now we see the sickening video of a Black Lives Matter/Antifa  mob in Portland, dragging a white couple out of a truck and beating the man senseless, perhaps even killing him. You can read all about it and watch the sickening video at the below link from Legal Insurrection. It is graphic.

Keep in mind that the editor of the above blog, Professor William Jacobson of Cornell University, is under intense fire for his past criticisms of BLM.

I am sick and tired of seeing this senseless violence in our cities while police are told to stand down and are being defunded and even abolished as we speak. It is time for the police, National Guard, and military, if needed, to go in there are take back our streets-by any means necessary. These are people who need to be put away for a long time.

Make no mistake: If Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are elected, these forces of anarchy will take over our entire country. If Biden and Harris are elected, and the Democrats keep the House and take over the Senate, it's goodbye to our democracy.

And the rest of the world will quickly follow. Just look at Europe today.

Vote. Vote like the survival of our county depends on it-because it does.

Netherlands: Interview With Thierry Baudet

Hat tip Dagelijkse Standaard. Translation by Fousesquawk.

Thierry Baudet

For the past week, riots have been breaking out in Dutch cities by mostly Moroccan and Turkish young people. Some Dutch news sources will not even mention the fact that these are Moroccan and/or Turkish men, preferring to call them, "bored youth".

This week, the conservative Dagelijkse Standaard conducted an interview with conservative leader Thierry Baudet of the Forum for Democracy party. The article is translated by Fousesquawk.

Exclusive interview Thierry Baudet: "Street scum rules in the Netherlands. We have to change something in our country"

For days, the Dagelijkse Standaard has been reporting over the serious disturbances in the Netherlands, which have been caused by so-called "overheated and bored youth, often with a migration background". DDS spoke exclusively with Thierry Baudet about the aversion of certain groups against Dutch society and culture and what we could do about it.

What do you think of what we now see happening in the Schilderswijk (Hague) and Kanaleneiland (Utrecht)?

"What we see happening in Schilderswijk and Kanaleneiland is shocking. At the same time, unfortunately, I am not surprised. We have known a long time that in many areas of the Netherlands- nowadays not only in the large cities- there is a problem with the immigrant youths who have lived in the Netherlands three or four generations, but in no way want to be a part of Dutch society."

Isn't that simply an aversion to Dutch society?

"Yes, if you ask them if they are Dutch or Moroccan/Turk, they will themselves say the latter. The aversion to Dutch society is accompanied by an enormous over representation in crime, especially violent crime. The more their numbers increase, this will become a bigger problem, and that certainly concerns me."

Our Netherlands was once so safe and peaceful. It pains me to see that there are areas in the Netherlands that are unsafe, areas where the scum can chase the police out. And that was completely unnecessary; it is completely senseless."

What was really the tipping point where it went so frightfully wrong, as we now see in certain residential areas?

"It went wrong with the massive immigration of people whose culture and values are too far removed from Dutch culture and values. For economic gain in the short term, guest workers were brought to the Netherlands. Subsequently, the VVD, CDA and PvdA never did anything to send these guests back and their numbers rose at a dizzying pace."

For decades, looking the other on the part of  the party cartel has led to a culture of lawlessness and disrespect for the Netherlands and Dutch people. Now we are reaping the bitter fruit."

How do you think the authorities should react to the unrest in certain residential areas, but also as we recently saw, for example, with drill rappers on the beach at Scheveningen?

"First, the  government must deploy police capacity in the areas where lawlessness reigns. Why do the cartel politicians have police giving Corona fines to hardworking entrepreneurs while in the meantime, police are chased away by rioters in Schilderswijk? Why is the government considering giving out fines for filling swimming pools or washing cars during drought while the scum in our cities are waging war against the police?"

"The cartel must  stop with the bullying of ordinary Dutch people through more and more unnecessary rules to impose and enforce. Instead, the enforcement of public order must take priority. And if the police  are not able to, then the army must be deployed. I don't see why the Dutch military is deployed in all  kinds of faraway wars where the Netherlands has nothing to gain, but not deployed to keep our own country safe."

But to deploy the military in our own country, is that not a bit out of proportion?

"Of course  having to deploy the army in one's own country is not the norm. It is an extreme means for when the police can no longer handle it. And unfortunately, that seems to be the case at the moment in areas like Schilderswijk. Thus, we must, indeed, deploy the army: We must at all costs prevent  lawlessness from ruling Dutch streets and  the scum being the boss of the police."

In 2012 Rutte campaigned for the VVD with the slogan,"More punishment and less understanding for criminals". But 8 years later, the situation has only gotten worse. This is thus, a call to the cabinet:  Make sure that there are sufficient police, both in the street and in the police stations, so that rioters will be dealt with really hard.

The basic point is that every neighborhood and every street in the Netherlands is always safe. This is the most important task of government. Everything else is secondary."

Disorder among certain (especially) young people has been going on for years. Dagblad Trouw  wrote about it in 1998, for example. How are we going to handle this in the long run?

"Basically, there must be a change of mentality. Immigrants who want to contribute in a  positive manner to our society are, of course, greatly welcome. But when newcomers don't want to integrate, when, after three or four generations, they still can't or don't want to feel like Dutch people, when they commit violent crimes and have double nationality- then the government must get these people to return to their land of origin. That is better for everyone."

Baudet's words scream out common sense, but common sense does not reign in the Netherlands at the moment, nor in Western Europe. The Dutch prime minister, Mark Rutte (mentioned in the interview) seems content to follow the EU party line and do nothing about the continuous inflow of Muslims who are wreaking havoc on European streets. The Dutch police, like the police of almost every Western European country, are overwhelmed by the sheer enormity of the problem and the sheer numbers of the criminals.

Not that things are much better in America, where city leaders want to shut down the police and allow their streets to be ruled by Antifa/Black Lives Matter mobs. You might say it's a Western Civilization problem.

Rioting in Netherlands -Utrecht

Utrecht-in happier times

In addition to the previously-reported rioting in The Hague, there was also a riot in the Dutch university town of Utrecht Friday night. (It had nothing to do with the university.) According to NOS News (NL) 250 rioters were involved and 18 arrests were made. My Dutch sources inform me that rioters are primarily Moroccans. The below article in De Telegraaf is translated by Fousesquawk.

Riots in Kanaleneiland (neighborhood), Youths throw fireworks bombs

Utrecht-Riots broke out Friday evening  in the Kanaleneiland neighborhood in Utrecht. In social media, including Snapchat, you can see how a bus stop was destroyed. Fireworks bombs were also thrown, and cars and scooters drove through the streets honking their horns.

Around midnight, police blocked  the area, and a mobile unit began sweeping the streets It is unknown if arrests were made. Around 1 am, by use of a loudspeaker, police announced an emergency order was in force and that anyone still on the streets would be arrested.

"Surpass the Hague

A resident of Kanaleneiland could see the rioting youth from her living room. "On Thursday, I saw a call on Snapchat in which they said they wanted to surpass the Hague. Well, it worked. The Hague has been surpassed. I didn't know it would be so (violent)."

According to her, the rioters began around 8:30 pm. "I am in shock how many people there were. Every 15 minutes, you hear firework bombs. How can that be when the police are present?" The police won't say more than there is unrest in Kanaleneiland. "There are many youths on the street; there is unrest and vandalism." As to how many youths there are, a spokesperson cannot say.

It was further reported that a car was set on fire. "There was a car fire, which was put out by the fire department."

Earlier in the day, there was a call to riot in Kanaleneiland. "There was a report going around on social media that there was a call to riot tonight at the Rijnbaan. We don't know how true that is and if it will happen. Yet we are calling on our youth to (maintain the peace)! Talk to them and above all, do not forget that we must protect our Kanaleneiland neighborhood," the Kanaleneiland Information Center announced Friday afternoon on Facebook.
