U2 with Magnificent. From the 2009 album No Line on the Horizon.

Sorry for teh followers of teh prophet in teh video.

And then a modest tribute to the Queen of Soul, who sadly departed us last week. I say a little prayer. From the 1968 album Aretha Now.

OK, originally written for Dionne Warwick by Burt Bacharach and Hal David, but Franklin's version always stuck more. RIP Aretha. I say a little prayer for you.

Goede nacht.



Elizabeth Heng, of Cambodian origin, is the GOP nominee running to represent California’s 16th Congressional District, and recently she had her ad yanked by Facebook. According to Heng, "Facebook is censoring the voices of Americans with non-leftist views."

Naturally, the goons at Fakebook had the perfect excuse, since the content of the ad was 'too graphic' for their tastes. Right at the beginning you can see some killing field shots:

FB has since backtracked:

“Upon further review, it is clear the video contains historical imagery relevant to the candidate’s story. We have since approved the ad and it is now running on Facebook.”

Duh. "Upon further review" huh? You mean, like watching beyond the 0:05 mark? Methinks it's rather BECAUSE you did just that and saw the rest of the video that you decided to nix it. Because the rest makes it clear that here is a stellar example of the American Dream come true for LEGAL immigrants who DON'T need cradle to grave welfare and who've done their damnedest BEST to contribute to the country that gave them a new life and new chances.

Although I will cut Mark Suckerberg some slack: it's not only the above. In his defense, we can say that the Hengs do not seem to be either gay or criminals.

OK, bottom line. Elizabeth Heng got her video disabled because she's a Republican. And if you are minority that's a HUGE problem for our moral betters.

We wish Ms. (Mrs.?) Heng all the luck with beating her Dem opponent!

As an aside, in Khmer Rouge Cambodia only the government had guns:

Gun Control there worked very well.

Though not per se for the population.

I never fully understood Mark Steyn's status as a proud Canadian citizen but nevertheless one whose plan in life involves being an legal immigrant in the US of A, but even though he lives in New Hampshire and apparently loves it, I suppose his heart must bleed, for leftist loons have removed the statue of Alexander Macdonald from its place at the entrance of Victoria City Hall.

Who was Sir John Alexander Macdonald (11 January 1815 – 6 June 1891)? He was Canada's first Prime Minister, serving two terms (1867–1873 and 1878–1891). Born in Scotland, this immigrant boy whose parents came to Kingston (then in the Province of Upper Canada) trained as a lawyer and became politically active early on so that in 1844 he was elected to the legislature of the then Province of Canada.

He and his main political rival, George Brown, united their parties in a Grand Coalition to expedite the forming of a federation. In the subsequent political machinations he emerged as the strongest and ablest leader so that after the British North America Act and the birth of Canada as a nation on July 1st, 1867, he became the new state's first PM.

Though his career was not entirely free of scandals and controversies, any historian worth his salt will agree that Macdonald proved an excellent steward for the newest Dominion, setting it on the path to a successful industrialized nation - which by necessity required a decent railroad network, in a country of that size and with Mother Nature imposing sizeable challenges, no mean feat.

Indeed, historical rankings have resulted in Sir Macdonal's being rated as one of the best Prime Ministers in Canada's history.

And now leftist lunatics have removed a statue of Macdonald from outside Victoria City Hall, "as part of the city's program for reconciliation with local First Nations", as mayor Lisa Helps helpfully explains:


"... I'm with Blatch - the great Christie Blatchford, my esteemed colleague from the glory days of The National Post. She's had enough of it, and so have I - whether it's the toppling of Field Marshal Smuts in Cambridge, President McKinley in California, Sir John A Macdonald in Victoria. The urge to erase the past is totalitarian. Yet what Pol Pot did, by re-making the world and proclaiming Year Zero, is now the default setting of every social-justice nitwit. Here's what Christie says:

I don't know about anyone else, but I have a bad case of revisionist-history/apology fatigue. I am pretty much done.

The Langevin Block in Ottawa is gone, now cursed with the gormless title of The Office of the Prime Minister and the Privy Council. The Langevin Bridge in Calgary is gone, now the Reconciliation Bridge. Both were changed because the Langevin in question, Sir Hector-Louis Langevin, a Father of Confederation, was also a supporter of the residential school system.

At the time of the decision to rename the bridge, one of the Calgary city councillors in favour of it promised that the plaque that would be placed on the bridge some day (it still doesn't appear to be there) "won't be vilifying" Langevin.

Well, when the City of Victoria packed up the statue of Sir John A. Macdonald last weekend and replaced it with a plaque, said plaque explained that the removal was done to "show progress on the path of reconciliation" while "the City, the Nations and the wider community grapple with Macdonald's complex history as both the first Prime Minister of Canada and a leader of violence against Indigenous Peoples."

That's close enough to vilification for me.

Agreed, agreed, agreed. I'm sick of replacing something - "the Langevin Block", "the Langevin Bridge" - with nothing - "the Office of the Prime Minister and the Privy Council", "the Reconciliation Bridge". The latter is just fatuous pap, and the former is not a name but merely a description of what's taking place inside the building. But that's all we can do, because we can't even take the risk of re-naming the joint. Because today's hero-of-the-day - the first transgender nominee for Governor of Vermont, say - will inevitably be revealed in thirty years' time to have been unsound on intersexual Muslima cloning or whatever. Because getting "woke" is one thing, but staying "woke" and "woke"-to-the-minute is all but impossible:

'Queer Eye' Star Jonathan Van Ness Under Fire After Saying 'Not All Republicans Are Racist'

The "leaders of violence" are those engaged in a systematic assault on not just national history but our entire civilizational inheritance. And the wimp conservatives who string along with this are merely licensing the next provocation. In Canada, much of this drivel derives from fainthearted ninnies twenty years ago who meekly accepted charges of "cultural genocide" - which is exactly like genocide, except for the peripheral detail of not requiring any actual corpses. Here's me two decades ago:

Only a generation or two back, governments thought they were doing native children a favour by teaching them the English language and the principles of common law and the great sweep of imperial history, that by doing so they were bringing young Indians and Inuit 'within the circle of civilised conditions'. It's only 40 years ago, but that's one memory the government of Canada will never recover. No civilised society legislates retrospective- ly: if you pass a seat-belt law in 1990, you don't prosecute people who were driving without them in 1980. Likewise, we should not sue the past for non-compliance with the orthodoxies of the present.

But we did. So surrendering on "residential schools" led to the re-classification of Canada's first prime minister as "a leader of violence" by the City of Victoria. And, if Sir John is a leader of violence, how can the very city be named for the Queen who knighted him and sent a wreath to his funeral? Shouldn't Victoria be renamed Reconciliationville? Or, per the Langevin Block, "the City of the Office of the Mayor and the Municipal Council"?

And what about Casimir Gzowski, who laid Her Majesty's wreath upon the "leader of violence"'s coffin? Shouldn't his busts and memorials be removed, too? And Sir Casimir Gzowski Park in Toronto be renamed Transgender Bathroom Park?

And what about Sir Casimir's great-great-grandson, beloved Canadian radio host Peter Gzowski? Shouldn't he be removed from the CBC archives? Or at any rate shouldn't Gzowski College at Trent University and the Gzowski branch of Georgina public libraries be renamed just in case somebody is triggered by the thought that they might be named not after Peter but after the great-great-grandpa who had the effrontery to lay the queen of violence's wreath of violence on the leader of violence's grave or violence?

This is not an assault on historical figures; this is an assault on history itself - on the very idea that ancient societies have a past, or roots, or historical continuity, or anything other than the fashions of the moment.

I'm with Blatch: Enough. Even if you accept every slur hurled at McKinley, Macdonald, Smuts and whoever's next, the cure is worse than the disease. To demolish the past means to live in a dictatorship of the present tense. To hell with that."

And here is Ezra Levant's take:

I tried to check out Lisa Helps' bio but it seems the mayor is 'intensely noncommunicative' about her private life. But all alarm lights indicating climate loonism, self hatred, feminazism, LGBTQWERTY aficionadoism or whatchamacallit, terminal do gooderism etc etc etc are bright red and their buzzers are doing overtime.

I hope this c*nt gets the boot at the next elections and a political figure of far greater stature and importance gets his rightful place back. One keeps wondering how this creature could ever become mayor in the first place. But then one can say the same about the idiot running the entire country. These are sad times.

Via The Daily Star, August 14, 2018:

"Riots have torn through Sweden, as gangs of masked youths torch cars and throw stones at police in a destructive rampage.

Footage shared on Twitter shows some of the largest blazes in the Trollhättan area north of Gothenburg, Sweden's second-largest city.

As many as 40 young people are believed to have hurled missiles at the police and torched dozens of cars in a car park outside a hospital and shopping centre.

Police say they are also battling gangs setting fire to cars in Hjällbo, northeast of Gothenburg; in Malmo, in the south of the country; and in the city of Helsingborg."

That's the sanitized version.

For the truth you better consult Pamela Geller:

"Officers said Tuesday that up to 100 cars had been either burnt to or vandalized in the city and in nearby towns such as Trollhattan, an industrial area with high unemployment, and Falkenberg. Falkenberg contains gender-segregated asylum seeker homes and police have been repeatedly attacked en mass in nearby Trollhattan, with well knows Islamic State fighters hailing from the area. Such areas, with large migrant populations, have become hotspots for violence in the Nordic nation in recent years with many described as “no-go zones.”

Fires were also reported on a smaller scale in Malmo, Sweden’s third largest city.

Sweden is to hold national elections in less than a month, and left-wing Prime Minister Stefan Löfven reacted angrily to the latest attacks, blasting the perpetrators directly.

“I’m getting pissed off – really! My question to these people is what the hell are you doing?” he said on a radio show according to Aftonbladet, promising to push for harsher penalties against those involved. “It seems very organized, almost like a military operation,” he said, adding: “My message to those involved is that there is no disappointment, frustration, or injustice that motivates you to turn on someone else’s car.”

What a sorry, PATHETIC excuse not only for PM, but for a mere man. Balless, childless Lofven is the same dork who expressed astonishment when President Trump a year and a half ago pointed to Sweden as the posterchild for the dangers of allowing unbridled (muslim) immigration. Oh how all the holier-than-thou types reacted. Let's recap, via Tribune dot com, FEB 20, 2017:

"STOCKHOLM: Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said Monday he was “surprised” by US President Donald Trump’s remarks linking the arrival of a wave of migrants with a supposed rise in violence in the Scandinavian country.

“I was, like many others I believe, surprised by the comments made about Sweden this weekend,” Lofven said during a joint press conference in Stockholm with visiting Canadian Governor General David Johnston.

Trump, speaking in Florida on Saturday, said; “You look at what’s happening in Germany, you look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this? Sweden. They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible”.

World joins Swedes in mocking Trump’s terror[ble] lie

The comment baffled Swedes and provoked much mockery on social media as nothing major had happened there on Friday evening.

“We have opportunities, we have challenges, we’re working (on) them every day. But I think also we must all take responsibility for using facts correctly, and for verifying any information that we spread,” Lofven said.

Former prime minister Carl Bildt was less diplomatic: “Sweden? Terror attack? What has he been smoking? Questions abound,” he wrote on Twitter on Sunday."

Ah, Carl Bildt, another leftist asshole. The question "Mr" Bildt is what have YOU been smoking? And what ARE you smoking? And speaking about smoking, how about Gothenburg being smoked out:

With every passing day we are witnessing the horrible consequences of importing en masse the Third World in our civilized societies - and to make matters worse, in the grand majority of cases the islamic part of the Third World.

Things will run their inevitable course, and the end won't be pretty. This is just a start:

Perhaps most heartbreaking of all is this snippet from Breitbart:

Police chose not to arrest the “young people” at the scene and have since contacted their parents, reports state.

Contacted their parents huh? Like, "Hello Mr and Mrs and Mrs and Mrs and Mrs Mahmood, we have to talk about your dear son Mohammed (PBUH) Mahmood since it appears your littl'un last night decided to throw a party ✨- all very understandable of course ha ha 😜, and, ah, it got a little bit out of hand 🙄, and now there's a LOT more CO2 in the air and you know the planet can't have that 😢. Not that it's SO bad haha LOLZ 🤣🤣🤣 now could we just sort this out over a cup of tea please and then all will be right 😊 💕💕?"

FOOLS. Sweden the Humanitarian Superpower? Looks more like a Schtoopiditarian Superpower to me.

Some of us may have heard about the case of Elin Ersson, the Swedish student activist who prevented the deportation of an Afghan asylum seeker (and known criminal) by live-streaming her protest to Facebook from inside the plane due to fly from Goteborg to Istanbul. Regular Lurker Leo Norekens mentioned it in the comments section last week - maybe you noticed.

Paul Joseph Watson has now posted a brief but damning diagnosis of the terminal pathology Mrs Ersson, and so many others, suffer.

Meanwhile, Goteborg is burning, but it's got absolutely nothing to do with the kind of poor sods Mrs Ersson is so proud to stand up for. More on that tomorrow.

Giulio Meotti over at The Gatestone Institute has the goods on the increasing number of in-your-face muslim manifestations throughout Europe:

"A few months ago, a global media tempest erupted after Polish Catholics held a mass public prayer event across the country. The BBC deemed it "controversial", due to "concerns it could be seen as endorsing the state's refusal to let in Muslim migrants".

The same controversy, however, did not erupt in Britain when 140,000 Muslims prayed in Birmingham's Small Heath Park, in an event organized by the Green Lane Mosque to mark the end of Ramadan.

France is debating whether or not to block prayer on the street. "They will not have prayers on the street, we will prevent street praying" Interior Minister Gerard Collomb announced.

"Public space cannot be taken over in this way", said the president of the Paris regional council, Valérie Pécresse, who led a protest by councilors and MPs. In Italy, hundreds of Muslims prayed next to Colosseum, and Muslim prayers were held in front of Milan's Cathedral.

The numbers are telling. When Muslims throughout Europe celebrated the final day of Islam's holy month of Ramadan with public prayers, city squares -- from Naples (Italy) to Nice (France) -- overflowed. The annual Birmingham event began in 2012 with 12,000 faithful. Two years later, the number of the faithful rose to 40,000. In 2015, it was 70,000. In 2016, the number was 90,000. In 2017, it was 100,000. In 2018, the number was 140,000. Next year?"

This has absolutely got NOTHING to do with peacefully concluding a period of fasting. Whereby the fasting is bogus anyway, since during the evenings and nights muslims gobble and guzzle down what they missed during daytime, and then some - but that's another aspect.

No, mass manifestations like this are a challenge, they are meant to be a show of force, a means to INTIMIDATE.

May the scoundrels who allowed this gruesome invasion, which in time will devour beautiful, neat, prosperous, efficient, and competent Europe, one day pay their fair share.
