In case you ever wondered how long DowneastBlog has been online, well, last month we passed the 15-year mark. Huzzah!!!

Jawohl indeed, the very first post dates from 11 FEB 2003, although it wasn't written by me. I was hauled on board in 03 allright, but only later in the year, around November, on the invitation of one of the three founding members, Kerry D. (it's a decision she may have come to regret). The other two were Tom D. and Scott F. At the time, they all hailed from Maine, more precisely the south around New Brunswick, which I understand is called the Downeast, hence the blog's name (another question that may or may not have been nagging you).

Anyway, I guess I must have bored them to death since after around 5 and a half years the last one, Scott, quit posting so that today, only yours truly remains trying to bore YOU to death.

And since this is also a Saturday you will forgive Me, Myself and I a fitting celebratory song for having held out so long!

Thx for tuning in and see ya in 2033!


Friday, March 02, 2018


It was a week with quite a few ominous signs for those of us with cream-colored faces. Before I go any further, I'd like to point out to readers not belonging to that club that if you have noticed I'm going down that route, it's rather by outward design than by my own choice. I remember the days when I was barely aware of my being white. As a student in Ghent in the early eighties, among my fellow students and acquaintances there was a Vietnamese, Moroccans, a Congolese (or at least a subsaharan African), and others. I mingled as freely with them as if they were chaps from under the church spires in the villages adjacent to mine.

Many years of leftist fuckwads screaming racism and white supremacy have left their mark though. Maybe it was never their intention that they would actually make us more aware of what we are, and Burke's Law of Unintended Consequences is at work here. Or maybe it was their intention all along, instilling hatred among different groups just because the left thrives on conflicts.

Either way, even if it had been the latter, I still might not have identified as White per se.


... I have noticed that where I subconciously somewhat hoped that people of other races would not fall for the leftist ploy to sow division among brown, white, black, red and yellow ... there seem to be too many cases where exactly that is the case. Even worse, significant subgroups of other races seem to eagerly embrace the idea of whitey being pitted against all the rest. In my darker moments, I sometimes muse that they are longing for some global 'Day of Reckoning' against the race that gave the world the automobile, aeroplane, computers and space ships, amongst others. Why, in the week that was, there was the African-American twats doing yoga in Costa Rica while 'taking a break from Whites'. There was the South African government announcing the seizing of land without compensation from White farmers. And, perhaps most ominous of all, the revelation that the new Irish PM, a Leo Varadkar, son of an Indian immigrant and an Irish nurse, intends to move 1 million Third Worlders to Eire in a barely disguised Population Replacement experiment.

And so, whether I like it or not, I do indeed find myself sliding towards a position where it's 'so you really wanna play that game??? Oooo-kay, you'll get what you want. I'm in'.

As for the example I mentioned above, the Irish had it coming, what with their recent warming up to loony lefty dadas. Be careful what you wish for, I says. Though in fairness, Varadkar the gay multiculti pantywaist was never elected by the people to be their taoiseach. Instead, it was the top brass creeps of Fine Gael putting him in the PM post, a top brass that, having fanatically pushed for gay marriage and normalizing abortion, gave the distinct impression of wanting to be even more fashionable than the self-hating, non-replicating, gay-smitten, gaia-worshipping continental leftozoids.

Via Breitbart, 24 FEB 2018:

"The Irish government has been slammed for paying journalists to write good news stories about Project Ireland 2040.

Unveiled by the government last week with a commitment to spend €116 billion, the document outlines plans to boost the Irish nation’s 4.7 million population by another million using mass migration.

The government’s strategic communications unit paid for sponsored “news pieces” to appear in national and regional newspapers promoting Ireland 2040, which “could not include negative or critical content”, The Times reported on Friday.

Speaking in the Irish parliament, or Dáil, opposition leader Micheál Martin branded the government’s use of the media to promote its scheme “ethically dubious”.

“The blurring of the lines is genuinely worrying from a parliamentary democracy point of view,” he said.

“The Taoiseach will say he is promoting the government, but the dogs on the street know he is using taxpayers’ money to promote Fine Gael politically.”

Project Ireland 2040 has been slammed on social media as a “pyramid scheme” to enrich investors by adding consumers at taxpayers’ expense, and as a globalist programme to “replace” the native population.


The government has also come under attack for plans to open a centre for 115 asylum seekers in a heritage town home to one of Ireland’s oldest traditional festivals.

Local media reports that on Friday a public meeting called to discuss the plans was attended by more than 100 concerned locals, many of whom argued the town of just 300 residents lacks the services needed to cater for so many new arrivals.

Mass migration from the third world has been a controversial topic in recent months, with reports that gangs of teenagers of African origin are terrorising locals across Dublin.

The criminal youths are “wreaking havoc” throughout the capital, according to police, who say the offences “[range] from shouting and intimidating old people in large groups to assaulting and robbing people of all ages, often with deadly weapons such as large knives.”

We have reported here earlier on criminal Nigerian gangs wreaking havoc in Dublin, or the nice African customs Irish landlords have to get used to.

Along comes Leo Varadkar with his snake oil, promising that he will spread the multiculti enrichment and progress of which thus far the capital has been the main beneficiary, over all of Eire.

It can be posited with mathematical certainty that if this social engineering folly would be allowed to go forward as planned, Ireland will suffer a fate akin to Rhodesia and, soon, South Africa.

I've been three times to Ireland so far and I like the Irish (though as a people I find them somewhat of the navel-staring kind, but then all of us euros have our peculiarities).

I fell in love with Queen's View outside Killarney, munched a modest hiker's meal near the highest loch in the McGillycuddy Reeks, stood on top of Carrauntoohil, walked the holy grounds of Glendalough, marveled at the beauty of Powerscourt Castle and its breathtaking gardens, went up Lugnaquilla, enjoyed the summer sun and Riviera sand in Barley Cove, walked the streets in quaint Clifden, took pics of our son near the Alcock and Brown monument, enjoyed a barista's latte macchiato in Longford of all places, climbed Croagh Patrick and looked out over magnificent Clew Bay, visited Gallarus Oratory, Bantry House, and Newgrange, mused at Heinrich Böll's cottage on Achill Island, looked out from Conor and Healey Pass, read W.B. Yeats poems in Lissadel House (and prayed at his grave with Ben Bulben at the horizon), took pics of the transatlantic cable monument on Valentia Island, and looked awestruck at the volumes and volumes and volumes and volumes of learned books in Trinity College's Long Room Library:

Oh, and I'd like to climb Errigal and Mount Brandon too.

So, NO. No Nigerian gangs robbing the Irish citizens from the Blasket Islands to County Donegal. To paraphrase Obummer, the future must not belong to those who will slander Edmund Burke, prove to be lousy stewards of guided Boyne battlefield tours and even lousier ones of famine cottages on Dingle, and generally lay waste to the Emerald Island. If Varadkar per se wants to suck Nigerian dicks, let him do so in Lagos (and stay there).

If this madness will come to pass, the Irish have not only the right, but also the duty, to take up arms and fight their government.

With deadly force.

It has come to this. Via Daily Mail, 1 March 2018:

"Marine Le Pen was today facing up to three years in prison after being charged with tweeting 'monstrous' Islamic State images including one of the terrorist group beheading an American journalist.

The 49-year-old leader of France's far-Right National Front has denied any wrongdoing, but now faces trial in the Paris suburb of Nanterre.

Beyond the three-years in prison, prosecutors can also demand a maximum fine equivalent to £67,000."

Marine Le Pen's unspeakable crime? Tweets including photos with the text:



She also tweeted a photo of the beheaded James Foley, which she removed after that naive man's parents complained.

The implication of this conviction is of tremendous importance, since it signals the de facto capitulation of France's judicial system to its future overlords, the followers of the prophet - while it has no qualms about sending law-abiding citizens to the slammer for pointing out the obvious.

Marine Le Pen's conviction is a replay of the old stories of yore in which hapless messengers of bad news were punished, sometimes with death as a result. Which, naturally, did nothing to counter the threat of which the messenger brought news.

Today, France is silencing Marine Le Pen. Meanwhile, its inner cities fall prey to chaos and mayhem and the REAL perpetrators of crimes are let free:

And ALL of those who do this are IS sympathizers.

As George Orwell said, "In times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act."

Another Pat Condell video:

Released yesterday, let's see whether YouTube pulls it down. They certainly have a tendency to do so. Most recently, the video 'A word to the criminal immigrant', which was removed, but made accessible again AFTER you click on the blue button:

You see, the language herein might be OFFENSIVE to CRIMINAL immigrants, and we can't hurt these peoples' tender feelings, can we? At least according to YouTube.



Last week, this here humble blog informed you of the existence of the so-called Warming Holes, i.e. places on Earth where Mother Nature refuses to follow the computer models.

Such a warming hole has now been detected on the Zugspitze, Germany's highest mountain:

Meteorologist Dominik Jung of the website announced that last night, on the Zugspitze the lowest temperature for the end of February in 117 years was measured, minus 30.5 degrees Centigrade. "It was really extreme", dixit Jung.

Al Gore could not be reached for comment. Leonardo di Caprio, currently residing at France's Côte d'Azur, will step in however, once he has recovered from a severe cold.

Gates of Vienna has the goods on this sad state of affairs via a certain Anton, who translated the video for subtitling by Vlad Tepes. The text below is Anton's introduction:

"Germany, supposedly one of the richest and most industrial nations in the world, has spent around 185 billion dollars in the last years alone importing predominantly young Muslim illiterates from Asia, the Middle East and Africa into its welfare system.

As viewers of this website know, Sharia law is creeping into everyday German life as Chancellor Angela Merkel executes her plan “an experiment to transform her country from a monolithic, mono-cultural society into a multicultural, multi-ethnic one”.

Germany’s naval ships have picked up hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants on the Africa coast, a result of the irresponsible birth rates and youth bulge in Arabia, Asia and Africa. They are delivered to Italy and often travel illegally to Germany, causing chaos and mayhem reminiscent to scenes of the great orc army in Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings” trilogy.

At home in Germany, the indigenous population are being forced out of the city centers due to high crime rates, stabbings, murders and gang rapes.

Housing has become too expensive for the Germans who have to finance their rental apartments themselves, whereas Merkel’s new pets are given government housing, free medical care, including free taxis to the doctors, dentistry, hospital care, transport, TV, Internet, telephone, food and clothing.

Germany’s soup kitchens are now forced to turn away these migrants, who account for 75% of all visitors — despite never having worked in Germany, and despite receiving the “Refugees Welcome” all-inclusive state welfare benefits.

The retired older German population meanwhile struggles to stay alive on low state pensions of often less than 800 USD each month, and need the soup kitchens to stay alive. Meanwhile young Muslim men of fighting age often cost 8000 USD per month, and pretend to be children, rape and murder schoolchildren, and are housed in expensive housing normally reserved for the well-to-do.

This soup kitchen in the northern German town of Essen is forced to close its doors due to the violent behavior of these orcs, who scream in Arabic and African dialects, push, hit and threaten the old widows who stand in line for some partly rotten vegetables.

The socialist left and the Greens hurl racism accusations at the many volunteers who freely gather and share whatever the supermarkets throw away.

And the many scared, poor old widows, the weakest of society’s weak, whose only outside contact is in the weekly queue a the soup kitchen, stay away, remain home alone and go hungry."

Here's the vid:

And here the transcript:

00:00 For the time being, the soup kitchen in Essen only wants to accept Germans as new customers.
00:05 The reason? As a result of the influx of refugees in 2015,
00:09 the non-profit association has seen increased demand.
00:13 Most recently, non-German visitors accounted for 75 percent.
00:17 Older ladies and single mothers have been frightened away by foreign-speaking young men.
00:23 The chairman of the association, Jörg Sartor, assumes that a squeezing-out process has taken place.
00:29 We have noticed that people feel uncomfortable when they are standing in line.
00:37 I do not want to say that they are afraid, that would be exaggerated.
00:41 But they feel uncomfortable because they also come here to communicate with their peers.
00:52 And it unfortunately doesn’t work like this anymore.
00:55 Because a number of, let’s say, non-German-speakers
00:59 are perhaps not so humanely considerate towards women.
01:04 And this especially has increased. A total of 1,800 entitlement cards
01:09 are handed out the needy. And are used in many cases by several people.
01:14 For example, the proportion of non-German cardholders is at 61 percent.
01:18 However, to some extent they feed additional family members.

François Desouche reports on the same story:

Danke, Frau Merkel, danke!

Mark Steyn, the indefatigable chronicler of the West's enthusiastic suicide is his usual brilliant self in "The State Submits", via Steyonline, February 21, 2018:

"I've written many times over the last decade and a half about that rare bird the "moderate Muslim". Surely one reason for his scarceness is that, whenever he pops his head above the parapet, he's hung out to dry by craven infidel politicians and bureaucrats, who on the whole find the admirably straightforward demands of your average firebreathing imam more congenial. Hence the pandering to returning Isis warriors: Mods vs Raqqa's - it's no contest.

The latest examples are the headmistress and chairman of the board of governors of St Stephen's Primary School in Newham, East London. St Stephen, you'll recall, was the first Christian martyr, but observant Christians are thinner on the ground in today's Newham than they were in first-century Jerusalem. So St Stephen's School today is mostly Muslim. Nevertheless:

~ In June last year, [headmistress Neena] Lall removed the hijab from the school uniform for girls aged seven and under and tried to curb young children from fasting at school in case they became unwell.

Good for her. Hijabs for under-sevens? If you're in most Muslim countries, you notice that the gals don't disappear under the veil until puberty: Covered kindergartners is largely a western phenomenon.

So there would appear to be no reason for a "moderate" or any other kind of Muslim to object to what Mrs Lall was proposing. Alas:

~ St. Stephen's School in East London recently imposed a ban on hijabs (Islamic headscarves), but reversed its decision after administrators received hundreds of threats from enraged Muslims.

Among the targeted officials from the primary school was the head of governors, Arif Qawi, who had supported the ban on the grounds that the girls wearing hijabs were less likely to integrate socially with their peers. As a result of the outcry, Qawi submitted his resignation, saying that members of the staff were afraid to come to the school.

Head teacher Neena Lall, whose educational philosophy has turned St. Stephen's into one of the best secular primary schools in Britain's capital -- in spite of its being in Newham, a poor neighborhood where English is spoken predominantly as a second language -- was bombarded with e-mails calling her a "pedophile" who "deserved what she had coming." Lall, of Punjabi origin, was even compared to Hitler in a video uploaded to YouTube."


... "But serious persons understand the score here: the ban on hijabs has been reversed, and the "moderate Muslim" has gone - and physical intimidation, nudged and winked at by prominent community leaders and politicians, has been rewarded.

I've written previously how odd it is to stroll around, say, Newham and see a harder, fiercer Islam than one would encounter in Amman or Cairo - like hijab-clad grade-schoolers. But the reasoning lies in Mr Qawi's wish to "turn these beautiful children into modern British citizens". If that is the last thing you want these children to become, then the best way to do it is by segregating them from modern Britain. Which is why primary-school hijabs are necessary in London but not in Tripoli. If you leave it till twelve or thirteen, your daughters may have formed friendships with indifidel girls and be reluctant to climb into their body bags. Better to mandate the shroud in kindergarten - so the friendships never form. Once the transition is complete and Britain is a fully-fledged member of the dar al-Islam, then we can lighten up and let the middle-schoolers enjoy a little sunshine on their faces. But, as long as "moderates" are peddling dangerous talk about "modern British citizens", then the logical answer is to be even more hardcore. Are they wearing hijabs in the maternity ward yet?

~By middle school, anyway, a nice young Muslima should be on her way to children of her own. Thirty-two-year-old Ahmad married his first wife, Lina, when she was thirteen. He married his third, Betool, when she was fourteen. That would have been statutory rape not so long ago, but instead Ahmad gets to live with both wives and his six children in a two-story house in Schleswig-Holstein paid for, like everything else in the illiterate unskilled unemployed refugee's life, by German taxpayers.

If you're wondering what happened to the remaining wife - the one who came in between Lina and Betool - she's still in Syria:

~ Für eine dritte Ehefrau müsste das Haus größer werden, sagt Ahmad lachend.

Ahmad The Syrian. Oh how bad the war situation over there was. So bad, in fact, that he left one of his three wives over there. But don't worry, family reunification laws will ensure Wife No. 3 will follow soon. Mr Ahmad The Syrian can't debug code, drive a lorry, weld, teach math, do plumbing, repair a dishwasher, nor even write or read or be of ANY use whatsoever in modern day Germany. But screwing his wives and producing Ahmad jrs he can as the best. And the infidels will take up the tab.

"For a third wife, the house would have to grow larger," says Ahmad, laughing - as well he might: Childless Germans pay for the polygamous Muslims that will supplant them - because Mutti Merkel says they're the software designers Daimler and Mercedes urgently need. I think I'll take my chance on Toyotas built by Japanese sexbots.

No advanced nation needs mass unskilled immigration. Unless your politicians are willing to say that, they're consigning you and your family to the status of Ahmad's wives."

As if the above isn't depressing enough, from my own country comes the news that in Maasmechelen, an eastern city in the province of Limburg, which harbors a dispoportionately large muslim population, the local GO school network (GO = Gemeenschapsonderwijs) has capitulated before a demand to re-allow the wearing of headscarves for eleven girls who refused to remove the islamic headgear:

Via Eye on the World, which handily provides the gist of the story in English:

"A law banning the full-face veil came into effect in Belgium in July 2011. The law bans any clothing that obscures the identity of the wearer in places like parks and on the street. In December 2012, Belgium's Constitutional Court rejected appeals for the ban to be annulled, ruling that it did not violate human rights. Before the law was passed, the burka was already banned in several districts under old local laws originally designed to stop people masking their faces completely at carnival time.

The above didn't go down well with the local Islamic population who took Belgium to court on a number of occasions in which to win the right to cover up. That last was last year when the European Court of Human Rights ruled that Belgium's ban on face veils does not violate the European Convention on Human Rights.

Not ones to give up, the Muslims then took the government to court in the Belgique municipality of Maasmechelen and today a judge in Tongeren decided that 11 school girls have a right to cover up as the school regulations go against the European Convention on Human Rights, which guarantees freedom of religion.

I wonder when we will see the reverse in Afghanistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia and parts of Pakistan?"

Islam is cancer.

A cancer has either to be cut away or removed with radiation or chemotherapy.

Failure to do so will result in the death of the host.
