‘Austria’s richest man’ vs. PC

It seems that ‘Austria’s richest man’ has spoken out, in an interview with Kleine Zeitung,  against mass immigration to Europe and has denounced Political Correctness. According to Breitbart London:

“In the interview, Mateschitz took a stand against the “destabilisation of Europe”, which he said threatens the “uniqueness of [the continent’s] diversity and individuality with its different cultures and languages”.

“I hope I’m not the only one who’s worried that one of the highest officials in Brussels said that countries which aren’t multicultural should be wiped off the map”, Mateschitz told the newspaper, possibly alluding to comments made by European Commission Vice-President Frans Timmermans in 2015.”

How is it, I wonder, that Mateschitz is not spouting the same politically correct mantras we hear from most European public figures? What has enabled him to escape the straitjacket of political correctness?

The information I’ve read about him indicates that he is of Croatian origin, though born in Austria. (I half-expect someone to say that he is a Jew, though there is nothing to that effect in what I’ve read. Still, one never knows; name origins are often confusing. But if he were in fact of Jewish origin that would make his statements even more anomalous, given the fact that the default Jewish position seems to be for open borders and multiculturalism.)

Maybe the difference is that he is of an older generation, having been born in 1944 before ‘political correctness’ spread its poison throughout the West. Only those who remember things as they once were can truly know what has been lost.

Mateschitz alludes to remarks by the European Commission VP Timmermans, indicating that ‘any society, anywhere in the world, will be diverse in the future’, because ‘that’s the future of the world.’ The implication seems to be “or else.” There is to be no choice. That’s already been made clear, even though we’ve seldom heard it expressed so bluntly, and with such seeming finality, before. It’s more than clear that the European officials are totalitarians.

”Of political correctness, Mateschitz said: “It seems that no one dares to tell the truth, even if everyone knows what the truth is.”

“The elites want citizens to be frightened, and easily manipulated,” he added.”

Despite the fact that the occasional brave soul speaks up and says these things, it seems that most people in Europe (and too many here) are unwilling to break out of the mental prison. Are they frightened, or are they just unaware of reality? Surely there has to be an awakening to reality someday — surely?

Some of us have been saying this for years and have we come any closer to that day?

Still, every voice of truth and sanity is welcome, and the cumulative effect may one day be felt, even if it appears that the mass delusion is as strong as ever.

 

 

 

A glimpse into the millennial mind

As seen on Tumblr:

millennials

For those not up on lefty millennial jargon, ‘terf’ is an acronym for ‘Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminist’, in plain English, a ‘radical feminist’ (is there any other  kind these days?) who does not accept ‘trans women’ as women.

I suppose you could say the ‘terf’ (who is being disinvited from following the Tumblr blogger who posted the above) still has some kind of tenuous grasp on what is called reality. No realists welcome in the lefty fold; it seems that’s a basic tenet of leftism in the millennial universe.

Then there was this gem from last November:

millennials 2016-11-23_025425

It appears that they didn’t do their job of ‘educating’ the wayward older generation, as their side didn’t succeed in electing Hillary — or even getting Bernie past the primaries.

But did ‘we’ win, after all, or did they? Time will tell. As I say, ‘they’ are winning the cultural/societal battles, handily. It’s about so much more than politics.

 

‘We don’t have to live like this’

The title of this post is the last line from Porter’s post at Kakistocracy, on the subject of the recent jihad attack in Sweden. It’s a very stark and effective commentary; if you haven’t seen it, please read it.

Beware, though, if you are squeamish about pictures of human carnage. Porter has posted a picture of one of the Swedish victims; it will stay in your mind if you see it. Some bloggers have refrained from including such images because they think it is too shocking and disturbing, and some readers have complained about seeing the photos. But unpleasant though it is (and I am one who is not inured to the sight of blood and gore) I think it may be necessary for those in denial to see the results of our stupid ‘welcoming’ attitudes towards anybody and everybody who enters our countries. Such willful openness is an  invitation to this kind of slaughter, given the state of our world.

Some would say that the world has always been an unsafe place to some extent, and they are right up to a point; however in this age of an aggressive and violent Islam on the move, acting out the precepts of their bloodthirsty belief system, it is foolhardy in the extreme to open our doors to them and give them the freedom of our countries.

Among the comments on Porter’s blog post, ‘nilus’ says, that the photo of the mangled victim should stop the cries of ‘false flag! crisis actors! fake blood.’  Yes, and don’t forget that the ‘bodies’ are really mere stuffed dummies.

Yet I fully expect to see those accusations appear on various blogs, if they haven’t already. Are there false flags? No doubt. Have we been lied to by our overlords about these kinds of things? Most likely; why would they make an exception on these incidents, since they habitually lie to us about almost everything?

But it beggars belief to say that all these attacks are staged, acted out by ‘crisis actors’ using red paint and other stage props. If we follow out the ‘logic’ of this line of argument, then Moslems are really not attacking us; they are innocent victims of a blood libel. To believe that these events can’t be what they seem is to believe that Moslems are not capable of, nor willing to, kill us as they repeatedly threaten and promise to do.  Maybe all those hirsute men carrying signs like ‘behead those who insult Islam’, ‘death to Europe‘, etc., were all just actors too.

What’s happening to us is insane in that we are allowing it, as long as we allow those who are perpetrating the acts into our countries and making excuses for them. And a huge dose of reality all the way around is sorely needed, unpleasant though it may be.

We don’t have to live like this.’ Truly.

My misgivings were valid

Or so it appears now, what with Trump’s launching of missile strikes on Syria. Now we can watch Lindsey Graham and John McCain gloat over getting what they wanted, and we get to hear Newt Gingrich’s smug statements about the ‘decisive action’ Trump is taking.

Praise from that bunch is equivalent to anathema, from my perspective. And it seems a lot of people on the alt-right agree with my feelings about this, while many of the ‘true believer’ diehards are sticking by Trump — but these seem mostly in the GOP faithful category. Like the FReeper who posted this, in response to those disenchanted with the ‘god-emperor”:

To: TrumpisRight

All the anti-Trump drama queens around here tonight should be listening to Newt on Fox right now.

He just said this is a historic week. Gorsuch confirmed, successful meetings with Egypt and Jordan, meeting today wirh China, and decisive action in Syria that just made Russia, Iran, Syria and NK take notice. Newt said Trump has a strong SoS, SecDef, and NSA and Trump is stronger than all of them. People trashing Trump tonight need to just get a life.”

I’ve not posted much about the Trump administration and their doings. I voted for Trump with some misgivings; I was not pleased to see the coterie of neocons and globalist-types that Trump gathered around him, and it seems as if one by one he was backing off his promises or half-promises, caving on too many important things. I refrained from blogging about that, hoping these things would just be aberrations, but it seems they were not.

Is Trump the passive victim of a ‘coup,’ as some say? Is he being ”played”, duped, given bad advice by the crowd of wormtongues around him, or is he consciously participating in a preplanned operation?

Early on I began to wonder: what if? What if he is a participant in some kind of psyops directed at the right, probably at the alt-right, as the media seemed obsessed with calling attention to the ‘evil, fascist’ alt-right during the campaign? Might the powers-that-be not have purposely run a candidate that could be made to appeal to the nationalist, non-PC, anti-globalist right wing, so much feared (it seems) by TPTB? By running a candidate that would give signals that he supported a populist, nationalist right agenda, maybe they thought they could corral and ‘tame’ such a movement, or co-opt it, making the alt-right feel they had a stake in ‘the system’, in mainstream politics, rather than in opposing the system.

They could thus de-fang the feared alt-right/populist right and, when the latter inevitably found out they were being gaslighted and fooled, disillusionment and demoralization would follow, and maybe a schism in the non-PC right, or even amongst the harmless, ‘cucked’ GOP, who would likewise break down into dissension and thus spend their energy in infighting (pro-Trump loyalists vs. disillusioned ex-Trump supporters). Or maybe I have read too many ‘conspiracy’ oriented speculations, and become too cynical.

Maybe we’ll never know. I do think our trust was betrayed, though as I said I was a skeptic already.

Meantime we have to wonder if this Syria thing will lead to war with Russia, and for Christians, whether this is the ‘Gog-Magog’ scenario we’re embarking on.

Syria intervention?

I don’t know if I have much to add to the discussion of the situation in Syria. Plenty of other bloggers on the right are talking about it. All I can say is that it gives me a feeling of déjà vu, of 2003 and the beginning of the Iraq war, which has proven to have been futile (as I and many others on the ‘real right’  then said it would be) and to have wasted many American lives.

Back then, the Republican faithful had become used to defending G.W. Bush in the face of the constant attacks from the left, who were then in the throes of ‘Bush Derangement Syndrome’. And thus anybody on the right who criticized Bush was called names and basically read out of the Republican fold. Only the ‘paleocons’, the old right, and a few ‘traditionalists’ spoke out against the Iraq war, because in the face of all the anti-Bush feeling in the media, the GOP resorted to a blind loyalty that led them to rationalize every bad move Bush made, talking themselves into believing that he was a ‘master politician’ who had some grand, secret plan, some ‘strategery’, as Limbaugh called it, that would eventually bring triumph for himself and for Republicans. Of course Bush, the ultimate ‘shrewd poker player’ and political genius, never produced this grand triumph his faithful followers counted on. The war in Iraq was, as the doubters on the ‘old right’ predicted, a boondoggle, and a ‘quagmire’.

The ‘old right’ was right back in 2003. The ‘neocons’, who were hardly recognized by many Republicans for what they were then, have since unmasked themselves; surely we know better than to follow their failed policies? Or will blind loyalty cause us to repeat the blunders of the recent past?

I hope I am wrong in this case, but if this proposed Syrian adventure happens, it could be the Bush ‘quagmire’ all over again.

On brainwashing

The following is from an article by Edward Hunter, in American Legion magazine, 1956:

“In my years of research into brainwashing, I have interviewed more brainwashed individuals of different races, nationalities and professions thaan anyone elsed. I put the word into the language and first revealed it as a methodically planned strategy.

[…]Brainwashing works through two channels: a softening-up process and an indoctrination process. The former need not refer to communism at all. Its intent is to put the victim’s mind into a fog to create the confusion without which there can be no brainwashing.”

[Note: the writer is referring to the process which was developed by the Communist captors to be used against American POWs in Korea. Compare with what is now referred to as ‘gas-lighting’ the populace in our current society].

“The contemptible trick is to confuse the victim over what happened and what didn’t happen, until he mixes up the two.

[… ]One of the most important lessons we can learn from the red POW camps in Korea is that the softening-up process was alarmingly easy with a great number of American captives. Many of our men appeared already more or less softened up before they fell into communist hands. Somehow, we had done that part of the job for the reds. Home, school, and church had missed out somewhere. The records showed that resistance boiled down to character. Education and rank could be used for good or for bad, according to the individual’s integrity. The main vulnerabilities that the reds were able to exploit in their victims are frequently glamorized here in America as a misnamed ‘liberal education,’ an extremist ‘seeing the other fellow’s point of view,’ watching out only for ‘What’s in it for me?’ and a host of other supposedly ‘modern’ traits that branded anything as ‘corny’ that wasn’t strictly new. What was progressive was given a pro-red coloration, like that fine word.

American craving for the latest model dishwasher and newest television set had subtly shifted over to the demand for the ‘original’ in human character. This has gone so far that we have extended the slang meaning for the ‘corn’ of a ham vaudeville actor to mean anything that is truly genuine, time-tested, and part of our universal, human fabric.

[…] Conversely, ‘to be different’ has been made into a gospel, and its disciples have tied themselves up with such a precise set of rules that non-conformism has become the deadliest of intellectual sins. The modern sophisticate is a psychological conformist praying at an altar he calls non-conformism. As in red semantics, black is white, peace is war, to be liberal means to be one-sided, and tolerance means appeasement of evil and surrender to it. The other side is always right. Patriotism is brushed aside as chauvinism — and ‘corny.’ “

It seems the home-grown left in all Western countries has a remarkably consistent character, and what Hunter wrote here is still typical of the ‘progressives’ and their inverted morality. And the techniques of old-fashioned ‘brainwashing,’ as pioneered in the POW camps, are still very much in use, though modified for a civilian population.

For what it’s worth, Edward Hunter is credited in the magazine with being the one who coined the word ‘brainwashing’, and he says himself that he put the word into our language.

Are people easily swayed?

In the midst of the ongoing disaster in Europe, there’s been a lot of discussion of how Germany — which seems to be Ground Zero in the escalating war against Europeans — has become so self-abasing and unwilling to defend herself. ‘How could the Germans’, it’s often asked, ‘go from being a proud and racially conscious people to being self-flagellating, willing to commit national suicide?’

The consensus seems to be that gradually, over the years since WWII ended, the German people were ‘re-educated’ into believing that their past was shameful and evil, and that they had to atone perpetually for their history, especially during WWII. Slowly, between 1945 and now, they became a passive, PC-whipped people thanks to relentless chaming propaganda.

In light of that popular belief, it’s interesting and puzzling to look at this poll, which was taken in Germany in March, 1946. The poll is in a book titled ‘Public Opinion, 1935-46’, edited by Hadley Cantril, published by Princeton University Press, 1951. See the results below:

Germans on race 1946ab

I would have expected different results. It appears, assuming that the respondents gave honest replies, that even by 1946, not that long after the end of the War, that they held very liberal attitudes on race and intermarriage, views that we now call ‘politically correct.’ What does this say, I wonder? Are people’s opinions that shallow and fluid, that they could be reversed so quickly? Surely the globalist, Babelist propaganda merchants (who were at work even then) hadn’t had time to thoroughly change public opinion in Germany.

Incidentally, the book in question has many polls on various subjects, taken in various Western countries, and it’s fascinating — and depressing, at times — to see how different most people’s views were in that time period. I expect I will post more from these polls.

 

‘Unvetted’ refugees

I doubt if anyone reading this would be surprised to read in The New American that the majority of ‘refugees’ (and immigrants, for that matter) are not vetted, or are vetted very poorly. I’ve said it before as have many others, but the woman, Jill Noble, who is at the center of this New American piece is saying these things as one who has some direct knowledge. Josh Tolley’s interview of her on YouTube has attracted over 125,000 viewers, and apparently the information she offers is new to them.

Noble says that many of the ‘refugees’ are mostly men, from Africa and the Middle East — whose names are not even known for certain. And they obviously come from what used to be termed ‘backward countries’ where thorough documentation or identification are unreliable and spotty, to say the least. I will point out that this is true of most of the countries which are sending us ‘immigrants.’ Our media, much as they lie and obfuscate about these things, mention that many immigrants who are arrested have multiple identities and their true names are never known for sure in some cases. So it is not just the ‘refugees’, but many immigrants too. No need to point out the foolishness of our policy of taking these people at their word. Deception is not unheard of among them.

Surely Western countries — which seemingly are the only desired destination for these people who supposedly ‘fear for their lives’ — are viewed as the world’s pushovers, a lot of gullible and easily-duped people. We invite this attitude on their part by our lack of common-sense. Even “conservatives” who think of themselves as tough-minded are prey to the tendency to feel sorry for these poor people ‘just looking for a better life’. Then there are those squishy ‘conservatives’ who feel flattered to fill the role of the World’s Savior.

So, though Donald Trump promised to ‘vet’ incoming refugees, I think it’s just window-dressing, meant to assuage any doubts, and to reassure those easily-pleased followers, who accept a vague promise to ‘do something.’ The truth, which this video seems to reinforce, is that vetting incoming refugees (and immigrants from the Third World) is just not possible.

Those who are content to rely on ‘vetting’ are kidding themselves or they are simply blind followers of the leaders they admire. That in itself is the source of many of our woes as a country: blindly trusting leaders.
