The new dark age: Across Europe, free speech and democracy face their biggest threat since the Thirties

The new dark age: Across Europe, free speech and democracy face their biggest threat since the Thirties

By Dominic Sandbrook/Daily Mail/ 5 November 2012  (H/T Vlad)

After a week dominated by the terrible effects of Superstorm Sandy, the increasingly bitter struggle between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney and the continuing fallout from the Jimmy Savile scandal, it was easy to overlook a little story about an obscure Greek journalist called Kostas Vaxevanis.

In its way, though, the ordeal of Mr Vaxevanis, the editor of an Athens magazine, who narrowly escaped prison for publishing the names of suspected tax evaders, is the biggest story of all.

Its themes — the freedom of the Press, the corruption of the establishment, the arrogance of the elite and the terrifying storm engulfing the economies of Europe — go to the heart of a crisis that threatens to tear the Continent apart.

An assault on free speech: Greek magazine editor Kostas Vaxevanis was arrested for naming over 2,000 individuals evading taxAssault on free speech: Greek editor Kostas Vaxevanis was arrested for naming individuals evading tax

But the Vaxevanis scandal is merely the tip of the iceberg.

“Lord Ahmed” rubs it

Political Correctness:

Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

In Britain,  a deluded Labour government imported millions of unassimmilable third world savages,   to “stick it to the tories”, and to change the balance of power forever.  Labour threw open the doors to mass migration in a deliberate policy to change the social make-up of the UK.

British people are paying to be dispossessed of their country through systematic ethnic cleansing. The ruling elites fostered a PC climate of fear where anyone who questioned it was villified as a racist.

This act of treason remains unpunished, thanks to political correctness that suffocates every opposition like a toxic blanket , all over once great Britain.

“Lord Ahmed”- the gift that keeps on giving:

You can take a turd out of Pakistan, you can sprinkle it with pixie dust and dress it up in a suit, but it will always remain a turd.  This  Koranimal  threatened Geert Wilders with jihad; he  defends Muslim Pedophiles, blames local girls for rape, killed people  with his car while sending text messages; involved in crime, corruption, embezzlement,  “Lord Ahmed of Rotherham ‘offered £10m bounty for Obama & Bush … and yet, there is no one in once great Britain to take this guy out with the garbage?

Malala could be victim of govt plot, says “Lord”Ahmed Nazir

Muselmaniacs live in a world of conspiracy theories. Ahmed is not a shiite, but he sounds like one.  “Lord Ahmed” is an insult to every self-respecting Englishman. He parrots Talibandit Fazal-ur-Rehman who claims Malala was not injured.

Canuck Mustard  Zafar Bangash shoots her again:

Lord Ahmed said he believed Malala Yousafzai, who is awaiting reconstructive surgery at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, could have been shot as part of a plot to discredit the Taliban.

The conspiracy kitchen is boiling over:

The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for trying to kill the schoolgirl, who was shot in the head at point blank range, on the day of the shooting and later said it would try again.

Update:

The shooting of Malala Yousafzai shocked the world and sparked protests in Pakistan against the Taliban

Syria: “We want to instate the Koran. To hell with freedom, we want an Islamic caliphate. To hell with being peaceful, we want weapons.”

Syria: “We want to instate the Koran. To hell with freedom, we want an Islamic caliphate. To hell with being peaceful, we want weapons.”–MEMRI TV

****

Here in the west enlightened progressives keep telling us that “freedom is overrated” or that “freedom is a ‘right wing thing'”– but Muslims don’t want our kind of freedom anyway: they want to force everyone to submit to Islam; for them freedom means to force Islam on others.

Peaceful, democratic Syrian rebels somehow misunderstand both the nature of their peaceful, democratic revolution and peaceful, tolerant Islam. “Damascus Demonstration: To Hell with Freedom, We Want an Islamic Caliphate and Weapons,” from MEMRI, September 14 (thanks to JW):

Syrian “Rebels” Slaughter POWS

BEIRUT (AP) — A video that appears to show a unit of Syrian rebels kicking terrified, captured soldiers and then executing them with machine guns raised concerns Friday about rebel brutality at a time when the United States is making its strongest push yet to forge an opposition movement it can work with.

That vid starts automatically; so we put it below the fold.

The Da’awa Never Stops….

Neither do the lies from ‘Muslim Matters’

“Free markets are part and parcel of Islamic law”– (that’s why they always bomb  markets)

“No one should be forced to convert to Islam”– (No one should be forced, but that’s how most conversions come about, and that’s how Islam spread, historically and now, even in Switzerland: Pupil Bullied Out of School by Classmates Because he Refused to Convert to Islam)

“The prohibition on wine is not imposed on Christians (who use it in their religious ceremonies) or on Jews…”–except in reality Muselmaniacs attack Christians and Jews when they drink wine, sing or celebrate their holy days.

But hey, Muslims find other suckers every day to help them weaken our resistance:

“It is only the Libertarians who are demanding the repeal of the Patriot Act and the repeal of the indefinite detention provisions of the National Defense Authorization Act”– which means Muselmaniacs are the best friends of libertarians because they want to see a full repeal. Islam and Libertarianism are a Good Fit  (libertarian fools buy it…)

And then this, enough to make your head spin:

 “The majority of Muslims will agree on basic female education not being forbidden in Islam”but they really hate it when the west pays too  much attention.

Voting Isn’t Revenge, It’s Resistance

Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish 

There are plenty of ways to cast the divisions between parties and movements, but the elemental act of voting divides rhetoric from motive.

Related:

There is a “declaration of war on the individual citizen” and tomorrow’s election is about liberty.  In a letter to Edmund Penndleton in 1792, James Madison anticipated  Obama’s fundamental transformation of America, correctly identifying it for what it really is: from Ricochet, (via GWP)

Obama called voting the best revenge, because for a sizable portion of his base that’s exactly what voting is. Their votes are a violent act, a spiteful assault on a country that they can never participate in for economic or cultural reasons. Change for them is not a positive program, but a negative assault on the national majority. Bankrupting the country by robbing it for their own benefit is their revenge.

Voting for us isn’t revenge, it’s resistance. It isn’t a choice that emerges out of reasoned debate between two sets of values, it’s an act of resistance against the revengers, the looters and the destroyers. The voting booth is a form of sabotage against their regime, their corrupt interests and their oppressive regulations.

Jihad in Africa

‘Radical Islam’ Grows in Zanzibar (Independent via TROP)

An “Islamic awakening” on the African island is having the usual effect on peace and harmony.

The Muslim awakening  relies on “people power” to advance its agenda. That agenda includes a new code of conduct for the tourists who account for 80 per cent of foreign currency earnings. The group is open to foreign visitors but they must abide by local restrictions, he says, giving the example of Saudi Arabia, which has strict observance of standards of decency.

Ethiopia:

29 Muslims charged with terrorism, working to establish Islamic republic

“Tensions” are increasing solely because of the actions of one side, of course. “Muslims in Christian-dominated Ethiopia rally on Fridays as tensions rise and arrests increase,” from the Associated Press, November 2, via JW

Muslims murder one, injure eleven in grenade attack on church

But remember: the only “hate” involved here is displayed by those who speak out against atrocities like this one. “Kenya policeman killed, 11 injured in church attack,” from theBBC, November 4 (thanks to David):

A grenade attack on a church in a police compound in eastern Kenya has killed one police officer and injured at least 11 other people, reports say. The man who died was serving as pastor of the targeted church, in Garissa town near the border with Somalia.

Muslims Attacked Free Speech After Benghazi

Yes indeed, Muslims attacked free speech before and after Benghazi. But that shouldn’t distract us from the fact that this whole thing was plotted, choreographed and engineered by the Obama regime. A joint venture between the Marxist Muslim POTUS and the Muslim Brotherhood, do do away with the first amendment. Why is that so hard to understand?

YouTube video a pretext to impose Shariah

WaPo

It’s unclear if the Obama administration’s purpose in condemning the now-infamous “anti-Islam YouTube video” was to deflect from Obama’s failed Middle East policies, and those of Benghazi in particular, or if it was his intent to “protect Islam from negative stereotypes” as he promised to do in his Cairo speech. Either way, his constant denunciation of the 14-minute, amateurish, anti-Islam YouTube clip signals weakness to the Muslim world and may have given license to Muslims in the West to demand restrictions on freedom of speech.

The Obama Campaign cannot wait 5 hours without sending another fundraising plea for four more years of the same, but the former Navy SEALS defending the Benghazi consulate waited 5 hours for air support that never came.

Bob Carr, a constant embarrassment

Having a history of being  always wrong on everything is a  qualification to rise up to the highest levels in Australia’s Labor party. We featured the self-absorbed Bob Carr before. Here’s his maiden speech, full of globull worming, “sustainability”, interfaith-healing, fantasies of Al Andalus and ‘global citizenship’, a terrible embarrassment.

The whole thing reads like “I don’t know where we’re going as long as I’m in for the ride…. wherever it goes”-

Bob Carr  is a fool. Take a look at this:

Update:

“Moderate Islam”  is like a moderate genocide

Australian Foreign Minister Bob Carr is currently in Malaysia where he has just announced an exchange program between Australia and Malaysia, which he says aims to foster moderate Islam.

Nobody looks good with brown lipstick on, and there is a big difference between kneeling down and bending over. If you thought Bob Brown from the Greens was a lunatic or some kind of extraterrestrial  ET, you haven’t met Bob Carr yet. This turkey is the foreign minister of  Australia. Needless to mention that he is pandering to Islamofascists and the MuBro’s like no one before him. Crawling before our enemies is as natural to him as it is for Obama to apologise for America.

Here’s some stuff from his blog:

Eid al-Adha celebration at Lakemba Mosque

Bob Carr, the storyteller:

”The public abhor vitriol and nastiness.”– (that’s why we have Labor. Sarc/off)

In other news:

The Australian government is about to build a new 40,500-square metre embassy in Jakarta, its biggest mission globally for Australia’s largest contingent of diplomats.

There are other worrisome developments:

This week Senator Carr and Ms Gillard are scheduled to attend the Democracy Forum Summit in Bali. It is unusual to have both foreign minister and Prime Minister turn up and shows priority being given to Indonesia.

Do they know how to spell ‘JIZIYA?’How much is this folly costing us? Read more

BOB CARR is a lose cannon:

On foreign policy he hides behind Obama and Willary Clinton. Sample:

“We are pursuing a negotiated peace … my administration has been in direct discussions with the Taliban. We’ve made it clear they can be a part of this future if they break with al-Qa’ida, renounce violence and abide by Afghan laws. Many members of the Taliban … have indicated an interest in reconciliation.”

It gets worse. This is from his blog and was published in The Australian:

Last week, the Foreign Minister of Burma visited Australia. Almost in passing, he told me that he sees Australians as Asians. Simple as that.

Not so fast. Not so simple. Hold your horses, Bob! There’s something missing here, and that’s us.

Labor, the gift that keeps on giving:

Australia’s Ambassador to the US Kim Beazley tell us  what we want:

While America is in the final throws of the criminal Obamster regime, another Labor fossil finds it necessary to tell us that the anointed one was a gift to the world and that Australians should want more of him:
