The Coming Cultural Revolution

The utopian dream of human perfectibility demands conformity of thought and action

The Chinese Cultural Revolution – a terrifying decade of totalitarian purging of everyone and everything that did not conform to Maoist ideology – ended in 1976. But everything old becomes new again, so welcome to the new Cultural Revolution which is not on the rise in China but instead is eroding the freedoms of the Western world.

The architects of the Chinese Cultural Revolution employed the ruthless tactics of totalitarianism everywhere: public humiliation, capricious imprisonment, hard labor, torture and execution, the seizure of private property, and in China’s case, the forcible displacement of much of the young urban population to rural regions where they and millions of others were starved to death. And just as Muslim supremacists strive to erase any pre-Islam cultural and historical artifacts in conquered territories, the Chinese revolutionaries attempted to wipe the slate clean of pre-Communist history as well, ransacking cultural and religious sites.

Certainly such abuses are not underway in the democratic West – yet. But a similar totalitarian impulse is on the move among the radical Left. In America and England, for example, historical relics and artifacts are being destroyed as college activists radicalized by the Marxist professors who dominate Humanities departments clamor for the removal of monuments to the “slave-owning” Founding Fathers, to “colonialist” giants like Cecil Rhodes, and to “mass murderers” like Winston Churchill.

‘In de islam groeit een fascistische ideologie’

Zineb el-Rhazoui, schrijver-journalist

Ze was moslima, werd atheïst en overleefde de aanslag op Charlie Hebdo. Nu presenteert ze ook hier haar boek Vernietig het islamitisch fascisme .

De best bewaakte vrouw van Frankrijk, zoals ze vaak wordt genoemd, geniet van haar relatieve vrijheid in Amsterdam. Ontspannen rookt Zineb el-Rhazoui (36), een vrouw van Frans-Marokkaanse afkomst, buiten debatcentrum de Balie een sigaretje voor ze aanschuift voor het interview.

In Parijs heeft de vroegere journaliste van het satirische blad Charlie Hebdo, die slechts door toeval de bloedige aanslag op de redactie van begin 2015 overleefde, permanent beveiligers om zich heen.

Nog altijd loopt er een fatwa tegen haar en duizenden moslims hebben haar met de dood bedreigd wegens haar scherpe kritiek op de onverdraagzaamheid van hun religie. Deze donderdag neemt ze deel aan een debat in De Balie en wordt ook de Nederlandse vertaling van haar boek onder de titel Vernietig het islamitisch fascisme gepresenteerd.

Facebook Algorithm Change Hits Fox, Breitbart, Conservative Sites – CNN, New York Times Unaffected

This is still more social media censorship, and more attempts to silence all conservative voices. Read my recent article over at The American Thinker. We are seeing an unprecedented erosion in our First Amendment rights, increasingly prohibiting the flow of ideas and free expression in the public square (social media). Run by left-wing self-possessed snowflakes, social media giants are indulging their worst autocratic impulses. And because they can, it is getting worse. “Absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

Having grown up in the 1970s, I can tell you it was a vastly different country then. It was free. But we aren’t any no longer, and it is time we took back what is ours — our unalienable freedoms.

Waarom Turkije de Griekse eilanden wil binnendringen

Er is één kwestie waarover de regerende Turkse Partij voor Rechtvaardigheid en Ontwikkeling (AKP) en haar belangrijkste oppositie, de Republikeinse Volkspartij (CHP), het volledig eens zijn: dat is de overtuiging dat de Griekse eilanden bezet Turks grondgebied zijn en moeten worden heroverd. Deze vastberadenheid is zo sterk dat de leiders van beide partijen openlijk hebben gedreigd de Egeïsche Zee binnen te vallen.

Het enige conflict betreffende deze kwestie tussen die twee partijen is dat ze elkaar moeten beconcurreren om te bewijzen wie machtiger en patriottischer is, en dat ze de moed hebben om de dreiging tegen Griekenland aan te gaan. Terwijl de CHP-partij president Tayyip Erdogan van de AKP-partij ervan beschuldigt Griekenland in staat te stellen om Turkse gronden te bezetten, valt de AKP de CHP aan, dat de stichtende partij van Turkije is, dat die Griekenland toestaat de eilanden te bezetten door middel van het Verdrag van Lausanne van 1924, de Turks-Italiaanse akkoorden van 1932 en het Verdrag van Parijs in 1947, waarin de eilanden van de Egeïsche Zee als Grieks grondgebied werden erkend.

Did Assad Deliberately Release Islamist Prisoners to Militarize and Radicalize the Syrian Uprising?

"Are we supporting al Qaeda in Syria?"

The idea that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad deliberately militarized the Syrian uprising and sought to support extremist rebel groups, including ISIS, has been repeated often in the Western press. As proof of such claims, critics of the Syrian government suggest that Assad deliberately released Islamists from Syrian jails; that the Syrian army has not fought ISIS, and that Assad sought to support ISIS by purchasing oil from the terror group. It is argued that Assad took these measures to sabotage the peaceful, democratic uprising he allegedly faced, and in order to convince the West that he was fighting terrorists rather than peaceful pro-democracy protesters. It is presumed that if Assad could be successful in this, the United States would have no choice but to embrace the Syrian government as a partner in the so-called War on Terror against ISIS and other extremist groups, considering Assad the lesser evil. Articles to this effect have appeared in Newsweek, The Daily Beast, Independent (UK), the Wall Street Journal, and Der Spiegel, among others.
In fact the Syrian army has fought ISIS throughout the conflict, as detailed by Syria analyst Aymenn al-Tamimi. The Syrian government has purchased oil from ISIS, but out of necessity, as have US-backed rebel groups and even Western-funded NGOs, as I have detailed here.

And more censorship: Tommy Robinson Suspended from Twitter for Stating Statistical Fact About Muslims in Grooming Gangs

The controversial activist Tommy Robinson has been suspended from Twitter for quoting research which found that nearly 90 per cent of convicted grooming gang members in the UK are Muslim.

Mr. Robinson was suspended from the social media platform for 7 days for stating the findings of the Quilliam Foundation think tank, whose founder worked as an adviser to Prime Minister David Cameron on issues around Islam.

“90% of grooming gang convictions are Muslims,” Mr. Robinson wrote in a tweet on February 25th, rounding up the number identified by the Quilliam research, which found that 84 per cent of convicted groomers were Muslim in December last year.

Twitter decided the statement of fact “violated the Twitter rules” and “temporarily limited some of your account features”, which included tweeting publicly on the website – effectively censoring him for a week.


And look what happens: Facebook censorship!

Must be a "faulty algorithm" making a "mistake", right?

CNN Purchases Industrial-Sized Washing Machine To Spin News Before Publication

ATLANTA, GA—In order to aid the news station in preparing stories for consumption, popular news media organization CNN purchased an industrial-sized washing machine to help its journalists and news anchors spin the news before publication.

The custom-made device allows CNN reporters to load just the facts of a given issue, turn a dial to “spin cycle,” and within five minutes, receive a nearly unrecognizable version of the story that’s been spun to fit with the news station’s agenda.


“Africans develop no feel for logical thinking”

Two Germans, Thomas Lehn and Constanze Kühnel, have spent years travelling in Africa. They return to Germany and can’t believe how everything just works.

After four years non-stop in Africa, what is the biggest difference from your old home?
Lehn: That everything works here. After our landing for example. And the cleanliness – in Africa you are drowning in garbage. For about 80%, there are no toilets. Here, in Germany, it’s another world.
Lehn: We spoke to more than 1000 people, from poor farmers in the Congo to multi-millionaires in South Africa. Our knowledge would be a treasure trove for the GIZ (Germany Society for International Cooperation) or similar organisations. But they don’t want to hear.
Kühnel: The whole development aid is a business model that creates jobs even in Germany.
Lehn: The naive way that the European media cover this topic is amazing to us. Endless millions of euros are frittered away senselessly, powerful people are rubbing their hands there and here no one understands. It’s funny that African presidents are the richest in the world but their peoples are dirt poor. That makes us angry and sad.
Kühnel: We discussed this with well-educated Africans. One of them said to us: “Just stop with the development aid – we need to walk through the valley of tears ourselves to finally stand on our own feet.”
Are there examples?
Lehn: In a village, development workers built a thermal oven. It uses solar radiation and saves the women from having to perform the communal millet grinding. The idea was that this would give the village women time for other things. But they don’t have anything else to do, because efficiency isn’t a factor in Africa – the millet grinding was the daily social event, and that was taken away from them. At some point the oven stopped working, no one took care of it, they just went back to living as they had in the time before the oven.
