"Never surrender. Never submit.
Never be silenced. Freedom
and independence forever."
~Robert Spencer ~
A uniquely British sense of justice
To this date, Robinson has involuntarily spent 40 days of his life in solitary confinement in one or another of these wretched English prisons on the strength of a one-sided prefab arrest and conviction. I guess that means it's much, much easier to prepare a case to convict and imprison a man than to argue a case that it was justified in the first place. Tommy Robinson clearly belongs to the class of nobodies labeled "working class." He is in the same class as the little girls who have been trafficked as sex slaves and their distraught parents and siblings - in other words, the class those who govern the country regard as worthless. Their lives simply don't matter. When a nation's rulers can simply shrug off the destruction of young girls' lives just because they are "lower-class," that nation no longer can claim to have enough character to continue to exist.
"Trump is Welcome, You're Not" - Tommy Robinson Supporters Lambast London Mayor
A speech by London Mayor Sadiq Khan at the State of London Debates on June 28 was abruptly interrupted several times by supporters of Tommy Robinson, the co-founder of the right-wing English Defence League (EDL), who reprimanded Khan over safety issues on the city's streets. One of the protesters shouted that terrorism is not "part of living in a big city" and that US President Donald Trump would be more welcome in London than Khan. He also started chanting Robinson's name with many attendees of the meeting joining in the chorus.
Tommy Robinson - "I despise racism and I judge bad ideas" with Jamie Glazov
Tommy says"I Despise Racism.... I Judge Bad Ideas,"sharing his love of people - but opposition to a totalitarian ideology. As we all know, Tommy has been thrown into a UK prison in a horrifyingly totalitarian manner. Help him by visiting his website tommyrobinson.online and by also going to Rebel Media which has nobly taken up his cause. And make sure to watch Tommy discuss "If They Murdered Me,"where he exposes how the UK authorities deliberately put him in harm's way:
MEF Organizes 25,000 Strong Protest in Support of Tommy Robinson; Plans Additional Rallies
Tommy Robinson has long been a target of the U.K. authorities impatient with his criticism of Islamism. The Middle East Forum (MEF) is
helping Robinson in his moment of danger. It does so in the context of its Legal Project which since 2007 has defended activists, journalists, politicians, et al. who face harassment, fines, or imprisonment because of their views concerning Islamism and related topics. MEF is sponsoring and organizing the second "Free Tommy Robinson" gathering in London on July 14. MEF previously provided all the funding and helped organized the first "Free Tommy Robinson" event held June 9 in London.
MP Iqra Khalid Announces Liberal Government Response of $23 M Funding Initiatives in context of M103
Please listen to this 9 minute youtube before you read the following articles by Tom Quiggan and Tarek Fatah. This is a perfect example of taqiyya. "Taqiyya is an Islamic juridical term whose shifting meaning relates to when a Muslim is allowed, under sharia law, to lie."
Quiggin Report #17 - Special Report: Canada Is Funding Terrorism
Iqra Khalid MP announces $23 million from Canadian tax payers to help fund Islamophobia. Unfortunately, the groups receiving money have repeatedly been identified as funding terrorism and have lost charitable status and bank privileges. Will Canada be identified as a national security threat to the United States?
Islamist Groups to Receive Canadian 'Multiculturalism' Funds by Tarek Fatah
For over a year many Muslim Canadians, including yours truly, my Sun colleague Farzana Hassan as well as other Muslim critics of Islamism had warned that the M103 initiative was much more than the victimhood culture of guilt being forced onto ordinary Canadians. On Wednesday, we saw our fears come true. While Islamists will receive millions to conduct their Sharia agenda in Canada, Muslim critics of jihad, polygamy, FGM and Sharia have been left on their own to fight global Islamofascism.
Canada is Funding and Supporting Terrorism Front Groups with Taxpayers' Money
This decision to again support Islamist front groups such as Islamic Relief and the NCCM (CAIR-CAN) is consistent with Trudeau's long-term support for lslamist groups in Canada. Combined with other actions such as his support for returning ISIS fighters to Canada, it adds another layer to the discussion on whether his handling of the national security file is competent.
Ottawa Public Library sued for cancelling controversial documentary
The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF.ca) has filed a court application against the Ottawa Public Library, on behalf of Madeline Weld and Valerie Price. This court application challenges the Library's decision to cancel a private viewing of the documentary film "Killing Europe." This documentary discusses several social, political, and cultural topics relating to Europe. It includes footage of the documentary's producer, Michael Hansen, interviewing various people to solicit their views and describe their experiences.
Wife of imprisoned Saudi blogger Raif Badawi sworn in as Canadian citizen
Raif Badawi's wife, Ensaf Haidar, who has been vocal in criticizing the Canadian government for not doing enough to free Badawi, said her favourite thing about Canada is freedom of speech." I still have hope that it's going to be soon," she said, adding that she hopes her new status as a Canadian citizen will help her as she pushes to secure her husband's freedom.
Ensaf Haidar: Ban the Burqa
Her husband, Raif Bawdawi, was arrested in 2012 on a charge of "insulting Islam through electronic channels" and brought to court on several charges, including apostasy. Ensaf's background as a human rights activist is sure to bring new found energy to this topic and will likely send shockwaves across the media.
"Nowhere in Islam is a woman required to cover her face. This is medievalist misogyny [sic] that treats women as animals and property of men and shamed into attire that befits slavery, not humanity. It is for this reason that on the first day as a Canadian I have raised the issue of banning the Burqa and Niqab in Ontario as I feel Premier Ford is a man who will listen to my plea and end the war by deception being waged by Islamists against Canadian values."
Canadian libel case hinges on how many Jews Muslim cleric wants 'eradicated'
Sheikh Shafiq Hudda's lawyer's statement reads: "Over the past week, Sheikh Shafiq Hudda and the Islamic Humanitarian Service (which Hudda directs) both of Kitchener, Ontario, have served Libel Notices on several organizations and individuals, including, but not limited to, the following: B'nai Brith Canada, The Toronto Sun, The Center for Jewish and Israeli Affairs (CIJA) and Peter Kent (MP-Thornhill), Waterloo Region Record." One hopes the Canadian courts will refuse even to consider this absurd case.
$9M federal fund to help black youth overcome 'unique challenges'
$9M of Canadian taxpayer dollars going to black youth programs aimed at combating #m103 "systemic racism". Related study, however, did not prove the widespread racism charge. Are we throwing good money after bad programs?
Canada's embassy in Haiti taken for $1.7 million by gang of swindlers and fraudsters, internal report reveals
Canada's embassy in Haiti was overrun by a criminal organization after more than a dozen locals hired to work at the diplomatic mission in Port-au-Prince swindled more than $1.7 million through numerous schemes and frauds, internal investigation reports reveal. A Canadian court has now branded the local embassy employees a criminal organization.
I am Canadian by Faith Goldy
"I don't believe diversity is our strength. I believe in European-Canadian identity - not multiculturalism. I believe in assimilation; not enclaves."
Freedom of Speech
Fighting Free Speech at the NY Times by Bruce Bawer
The bottom line is exceedingly clear and simple: free speech is at the root of all other freedoms. To try to impose blanket limits on it, or to rule that some people should have broader free-speech rights than others, is to take the first and crucial step toward the utter destruction of free society. Anyone who doubts this fact need only look at what's happening on the other side of the Atlantic. Alas, too many of the enemies of free speech in America view the growing tendency in Western Europe to punish certain kinds of expression not with concern but with envy.
'We Are Americans' Facebook Banned on Independence Day
On the Eve of July 4th, 2018 the arrogant, insanely anti-American FACEBOOK has banned the pro-America music video of beloved American patriot Lloyd Marcus. "Since when did reminding people of who we are as Americans and encouraging people to turn to God become political?" The video was rejected for "political content", Marcus wrote.
For 'Migrants' and 'Asylum' Spoofers, the Party's Nearly Over
The media is presenting what amounts to a slow-rolling invasion of the hemispheric North by the South as a "crisis," and it is, just not the way they'd have you believe. In the greatest concerted propaganda exercise in history, newspapers, television outlets, and the internet in both America and Europe are filled with pictures of crying children separated from their "parents" (maybe), and Africans bobbing helplessly on dinghies in the Mediterranean -- as if some great natural disaster had occurred.
Around the world
'Decapitating' Freedom of the Press?
If it was indeed the authorities' plan to censor the news and keep the information of the beheading under wraps, then it backfired. Due to the reports about the raid, thousands of people have seen the video, and hundreds of thousands have heard about the botched censorship attempt. Even worse for the would-be censors, they unwittingly revealed the very detail that they wanted to keep from the public. This is because the search warrant -- a copy of which was handed to Kordewiner -- happens to provide a detailed account of the murders. "For Hamburg's ministry of justice "the double murder is a crime of passion that must not be of any interest to the public."
Hungary's foreign minister chides "unbalanced, one-sided" BBC anchor for pro-EU, pro-migration rant
Hungarian foreign minister Péter Szijjártó had to chide BBC anchor Emily Maitlis for "unbalanced, one-sided" journalism after she lost her temper and launched into a rant about the EU standing for "tolerance, diversity, and human rights". Maitlis took umbrage with the Hungarian statesman's claim that "the current migration policy of the European Union can be very easily translated as an invitation" to illegal migrants.
Is Anyone Surprised Obama May Have Granted Citizenship to 2,500 Iranians? He Spent 8 Years Selling Out the American People
In a speech delivered several days before Obama's historic victory, he said, "We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America." This chilling assertion, uttered nearly ten years ago, sent a shiver down the spine of every conservative. And, as we look back over his presidency, we realize that those were the most truthful words he has ever spoken to the American people. Although these allegations have not been confirmed, given our familiarity with the misconduct of Obama administration officials, Zolnour's claim sounds very plausible. In fact, it seems almost trivial after hearing about the other side deals then-Secretary of State John Kerry made to facilitate the agreement.
The question of dual loyalty among diaspora Jews
To blame Israel, a tiny country of 8.5 million people, for worldwide terrorism and spikes in energy prices while ignoring the devastating fallout of the tribalism and religious extremism of the nearly half a billion Arabs in the region is to invert cause and effect. Jews should not be hesitant to loudly proclaim their support for Israel, and if the result is to be labeled 'dual loyalist', then we should understand that the epithet says more about the accuser than it says about us.
Polish lawmaker: "We will not receive even one Muslim...this is why Poland is so safe"
"There are a billion people in Africa. In the European Union, we have what, 500 million? How many Africans can we take? Don't misunderstand me, we want to help the people who are suffering, but we need to help them where they are, at home. It's not about being racist, nationalist - it's about adopting a logical, rational system." Indeed. But he will be excoriated as a racist nationalist anyway. It's what the Left does.
Protests in South Korea against Muslim refugees: We don't want to become like Europe
Around 520,000 South Koreans signed a petition against their government's refugee friendly migration policy. Most of them are worried about Muslim refugees from Yemen and economic exploitation by migrants. South Korea will tighten its refugee laws, after protests over the arrival of hundreds of Yemenite asylum-seekers.
This is quite hard to watch, but the facts are the facts. It's already here in pockets in different areas. Sweden is the canary in the coal mine.
Syrian government calls on migrants to return, help rebuild country
Good idea. Syrian government on Tuesday called on refugees to return, saying it has successfully cleared large areas of "terrorists." The rare appeal reflects the government's growing confidence after more than seven years of war. While officials usually appeal to Syrians abroad to return during television appearances and interviews, this is the first formal appeal broadcast on official media.
UK Lord asks if mosques will be monitored for "hate speech," is threatened with "hate speech" prosecution for asking
Lord Pearson asks if "Her Majesty's Government whether, in pursuit of their anti-terrorism strategy," will "require preaching in mosques and teaching in madrassas in England and Wales to be monitored for hate speech against non-Muslims." In response, the Muslim Baroness Warsi issues a warning: "I shall be really careful how I phrase this with reference to the original Question." So the question of whether the government will monitor the mosques for "hate speech" is thrust aside, and Pearson is threatened for his "Islamophobia."
Cop asked Muslim if he was entering UK for jihad, he answered, "Jihad is what we do," was still admitted to country
Khalid Ali had spent several years in Afghanistan, and when asked by British police whether he had returned to the UK for jihad, he replied: 'Jihad is what we do. We are Mujahideen.' And he plotted a jihad massacre in Westminster. Meanwhile, the British government recently banned Martin Sellner, Brittany Pettibone, Lauren Southern and Lutz Bachmann from entering, all for the crime of opposing jihad terror and Sharia oppression, and thereby made it clear that it is more authoritarian and unwilling to uphold the freedom of speech than ever - at least when it comes to criticism of Islam, Muslim rape gangs, and mass Muslim migration.
Independence Day: Why We Fight
Another Independence Day is upon us. Each one presents to us a challenge: will we also fight for freedom and independence, or give them up? The struggle for freedom has not changed and will never change. It is the eternal struggle over whether human beings will live free, or willingly submit to slavery. As those who are standing against tyranny continue to be excoriated as enemies of the people, demonized, and marginalized, avoiding slavery will be harder than ever. People everywhere defend oppressors and carry water for bullies and tyrants and think all the while that they're serving the cause of freedom.
The Danger of Our Time: When Questions Are Left to Die Unanswered
Over 200 years ago, as our Constitution's framers were leaving public life and this world, they expressed the logical fear that their freshly minted Constitution, in the Republic that would one day be made up of a shifting sea of irresponsible, amoral and contentious people, would eventually become its own worst enemy. They rightly predicted that Thomas Jefferson's hope of an 'informed society', given our fallen human nature, was doomed to fail - dissolving into a mess of battling factions lacking a clear and unified conscience. Well, we are right there, right now.
The President and his supporters are under attack
The Democrats know that a nation divided cannot stand, and the primary goal of mass illegal immigration is to divide the country into opposing cultural factions. They want to create a permanent underclass that will more readily accept dependence on government for subsistence and accept a lower standard of living. It's the oldest trick in the Marxist playbook. In a nutshell, the Democrat socialist goal is to overthrow the Constitution and turn America into a godless Communist hell hole, and they are using illegal immigrants to accomplish that goal.
"Why is it that liberals demand gun control
after every shooting - but never border
control after every rape and murder by illegals?"
The Two Culture Leaders Changing Today's World - Excellent Article
Let's give credit where it is due: Donald J. Trump and Dr. Jordan Peterson are the greats for this revolution we are experiencing. So many are waking up and seeing they have been lied to. Blacks, Hispanics, men, women, Millennials, straights, gays are opening up to a new cultural wave. They are waking up to see the lies they have swallowed from the left. Many are contributing to this change, so many are waking up and starting to right the ship of our culture at this time. It's incredible to watch, and for all of us, let's do our part well.
Teaching About Islam
Thanks to years of miseducation about Islam, students and graduates are ill-prepared to understand or cope with the threats to our society. Because of the innocuous portrayal of Islam in textbooks and classrooms, students will conclude that there is little to fear from it. They are not likely to know that the primary definition of "jihad" is "war against non-Muslims," or that jihadist organizations are active in every corner of the world. Unlike the IRA or the Tamil Tigers, the aim of Islamic terrorism is not to force political concessions, but to impose Islamic law on the entire planet.
The Challenge of Dawa by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
Moving beyond the controversy over his executive order on immigration, President Trump now has the chance to broaden our strategy. Instead of "combating violent extremism," his administration needs to redefine the threat posed by political Islam by recognizing it as an ideology that is fundamentally incompatible with our freedoms and a movement that is working insidiously but effectively to achieve its stated utopia. I argue that the American public urgently needs to be educated about both the ideology of political Islam and the organizational infrastructure called dawa that Islamists use to inspire, indoctrinate, recruit, finance, and mobilize those Muslims whom they win over to their cause.
Europe: "The Vision is an Islamic State"
The more than two million predominantly Muslim migrants that have arrived in Europe in recent years are only reinforcing the trend of growing Muslim religiosity on the continent. Given young Europeans' lack of a religious identity and the vacuum left by the departure of Christianity from the lives of the majority, one has to wonder how sturdy their ability will be to withstand such attempts at proselytizing. Europe will still exist but, as with the great Christian Byzantine Empire that is now Turkey, will it still embody Judeo-Christian civilization?
Is Guilt Killing the West from Within?
When Christians in Iraq were exiled, murdered or persecuted en masse by the so-called Islamic State, the West stood silent -- as if these Christians were the agents of the Western colonialism and not the legitimate and oldest inhabitants of the Middle East long before the Arabs converted to Islam. When a mob destroyed the French Institute in Cairo, burning books and collections, those who now want to return the "colonial artifacts" stood silent. When Iran's President Rouhani visited Rome, the Italian authorities covered the naked statues in the Capitoline Museums. Are we covering our own culture to please the Islamic world?
From Auschwitz to America: Lessons from Europe's Killing Fields
Events like the Holocaust don't happen overnight. They result from a process of systematic racism, intimidation and discrimination that lasts many years. Remembering the Holocaust is not enough. We must turn the tragedies of the past into lessons for the future. Nothing less than the continuation of the Jewish people is at stake. It's in our hands to ensure that Never Again really means Never Again.
One Man's Fight Against FGM
The World Health Organization estimated that over 200 million women and girls around the world are the victims of female genital mutilations, with three million at risk every year. FGM is one of the greatest human rights abuses of our time and one that is mostly ignored. This is the story of one man who is trying to change the world and eradicate this brutal practice.
White Pride in Developing the World
Whites should not concede one inch to this racial war against them. They should not only show that Europeans were already ahead of non-Europeans by the time of the ancient Greeks but were in fact responsible for developing the rest of the world. Don't let tricksters like Tharoor demand "respect" for Indians while trashing your own history. Don't let them tell you that you have no right to be proud of your ancestors while every other group -blacks, Asians, gays - are constantly told to be proud. Without the diffusion of white technologies, Tharoor would have little to brag about India today.
