    Won’t Shake Hands? Send ‘Em Back! 


    Great to see some authorities in Europe are refusing to bow down to backward aliens who can’t, or more accurately won’t, adapt to civilised standards.

    But shocking to see how others  grovel to multicult!

    Hats off, firstly, to Mayor Gregoire Junod of Lausanne, who’s forthright in his defence of last month’s decision to deny Swiss citizenship to a brace of aliens.’

    He refused to divulge the couple’s nationalities or other identifying details, but said they “did not shake hands with people of the opposite sex…. They also “showed great difficulty in answering questions asked by people of the opposite sex.”

    Unfit to play any part in Switzerland in the 21st century.

    Even better sentiments came from his deputy, Pierre-Antoine Hildeband.

    Trust The Leftal, sorry, The Local, to throw in the ‘news’ that ‘some devout Muslims argue that Islam does not permit physical contact with a member of the opposite sex.’

    The proper word is NOT ‘devout.’

    Normal Muslims, ‘devout’ or not, certainly in this 90% Muslim country I live in, hold to no such pig-ignorant sexist nonsense.

    And whatever, just because some ‘devout’ or otherwise sectarians ‘argue’ some crappy case, that’s no reason normal people, Christian, Muslim or of any creed, should respect primitive rubbish.

    After all, we all regard the vile ‘behead blasphemers’ skunks with loathing and contempt.

    Yet elsewhere in Europe…

    =

    …where else – you could guess, I suppose, but it’s Sweden – the authorities, in this case an ombudsman, in that northern kingdom, have crawled on their bureaucratic bellies to backward bints who flaunt their sexism.

        Here’s the quote from The American Conservative, a trustworthy source.

        ‘.On the ranking of agencies and programs most reviled by conservatives, just behind the Corporation for Public Broadcasting are the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Trump axed federal funding to both entities in his budget proposal, yet the Republican appropriators completely ignored this and funded them anyway.’

    Censorious Swedes – Following Spain To Insanity Fair? 


    Sweden, as we know, is a country plagued by censorship.

    But it’s not just censorship designed to hide the effects of crimmigrant evil from the general populace…

    Lugenpresse = Lying Press = Sweden’s Media Vermin 

    …which we’ve covered before.

    Take a look at this ad, below, in Stockholm, an advertising picture used to illustrate an article in The Leftal, sorry, The Local, last week.

    =

    Stockholm bans sexist advertising in public spaces

    =

    The author, Catherine Edwards by name, doesn’t actually tell us if that particular – and particularly appealing -picture is likely to be outlawed by the nutjobs who run the city.

    But she does tell us that the city fathers (oops, sexist, let’s say city councillors!) of Sweden’s capital have just decreed an act of censorship approved by every party with the exception of the Sweden Democrats.

    https://www.thelocal.se/20180613/stockholm-bans-sexist-advertising-in-public-spaces

    Some pinko Green dork has persuaded his comrades that ads must not be ‘upsetting in any way…’

    That’s deputy mayor Daniel Helldén, who got into full rant-mode about his plan to ‘remove advertising billboards deemed sexist or degrading from public spaces…’

    So no more‘sexist or racist messages and attitudes’ on something like 700 billboards in Stockholm, but thankfully  ‘ those which are not property of the city — such as ads on public transport, run by the regional government — won’t be affected.’

    We have had this kind of PC cr-p in other cities, like London, as reported here.

    ….but if that sort of sicko garbage is allowed, why shouldn’t ads suggesting disagreement with perversion also be permitted?

    That was Merry (‘Gay?’) England, but The Local’s little girl (oops, ‘person!’) adds that Berlin may go down the same authoritarian path.

      I have to tell you at once, your usual statements of opinion do not appeal to me AT ALL!
      However, you have it right his time.

      Why should ads or anything else, excpt toddlers’ bed-time stories, have to be ‘not upsetting in any way?’
      Every day I can see or read or hear things that are upsetting.

      I can ignore upsetting sights by looking the other way,.
      If I hear something that upsets me, I can put on my head phones and listen to jazz.
      If I read something that upsets me, I can stop reading it.
      Unless it’s somebody trying to get crimes committed, like that Fonda, then I can call the police.

      But if something upsets a certain kind of neurotic minority, they want it banned, so the rest of us, who might not be upset, who might be amused, or impressed, or just interested, cannot exercise our own judgment.

    Guilty or not, you have to ask, how come Sweden is still bringing in this sort?

    Actually, there ought to be a dozen awaiting trial, because that was how many threw multiple burning objects at the synagogue…

    ‘Mustn’t Upset Crimmigrant Brats, Must We?’ Says Strasbourg Shrill! 


    EU policy and law makers are ironing out final details of a legislative reform on collecting the fingerprints of asylum seekers and refugees, known as Eurodac. The latest plan includes possibly using coercion against minors, which one MEP calls “violence….”

    EU mulls coercion to get refugee kids’ fingerprints

    ======

    As you might expect, my curiosity was piqued, to say the least, by that EUObs report, but I wanted to check what kind of nutjob MEP might seek to define making recalcitrant brats do what they’re told as ‘violence.

    And here she is!

    ====

    • If she looks like a NUTJOB…and talks like a NUTJOB…

    What is she?

    ===

    It’s Anna Maria Corazza Bildt, a Swede, predictably, but inexplicably affiliated to the EPP, which calls itself the ‘center-right’ bloc. She’s well-connected, married to former Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt (who in the past has featured here – try this –‘Kiev Right to Fight,’ say Schizo Swedes – Yet Malmo Still In Alien Hands!  – or just put his name into our search engine)

    If I had to choose a nominee for Nutjob of the Month, she’d be a top candidate.

    Of course all ‘migrants’ should be finger-printed. The very fact that so many defy attempts to ID them in that most reliable of ways gives their mendacious game away.

    ,asylum seekers from Eritrea notably generally refuse to have their prints taken because they want to make their applications elsewhere.   Italy to start fingerprinting migrants at sea

    Red Renzi Rats On Pledge to Fingerprint Crimmigrants! 

    Given that they have arrived in Europe as lawless gate-crashers, taking their prints and keeping them on a register may also serve to catch them when, as so many do, they commit crimes – and how many terrorist (and sexual) assaults have been committed by ‘unaccompanied minors’ insanely admitted into civilised countries.

    Nine Young Women In Denmark

    ———–

    But that’s all by the way, as far as Nutjob is concerned.

    She got all fretty in her role as chair of a cross-party group on children’s rights at Strasbourg, but alarmingly she’s now happier that the original draft, a sensible plan to approve coercion to be used on children as young as 6…..

    If your kid starts breaking up the furniture, or throws rocks at the neighbours’ cat, no matter how old the kid may be, a spot of coercion – a damn good slap – makes sense.

    And if the kid has no bloody right to be in your country at all, and refuses to mind its manners and hold out its hand for painless finger-printing, why the Hell shouldn’t it be taken hold of and made to behave!

    NOW Nutjob is at least temporarily placated, since brat-prints may be obtained in “duly justified circumstances that are permitted under national law.”

    But only if they are over 14.

    Ludicrously, minors between the ages of 6 and 14 can provide their prints on a voluntary basis.

    So border security personnel will need to go down on their knees before obnoxious little squirts and say ‘

    We have seen plenty of evidence that a lot of the brats brought into Europe are insolent savages …

    Swiss School Panders To Sectarian Brats! 

    ….and for sure that insolence will not be lessened if they are taught from the get-go the regards themselves as little overlords.

    Even so, Nutjob is still shrilling away, about the ‘rights’ of ‘children under 18’ –  an oxymoronic phrase, since under-18s can vote in Scotland and marry in many other European jurisdictions – and is only slightly placated that the new limp-wrist draft “would be much better than the current situation, where EU member states can do anything they want based on national law.”

    https://www.politico.eu/article/eu-plan-fingerprint-migrant-children-forcibly,,

    One has to wonder if that right of sovereign nations to apply their national laws is at least as upsetting to Nutjob as the terrible traumatic torment that might be inflicted on unpleasant under-14s!’

    Why do I say that?

    Because this isn’t the first time the Bildt-Bint has appeared in our blog.  Just over a year ago, she made her debut here…

      As you say, they will no sooner touch down on European soil than they will learn that they’re free to do as they please and to not do as they’re told.

      Sweden needs a revolution and the Sweden Democrats are the only way to make that happen.

    Another Swede Cover-Up Of Crimmigrant Misdeeds? 


    Dependable as ever, The Leftal, sorry, The Local, told us last month that there are about 800 villainous young brutes ‘active in criminal networks‘ in various cities in Sweden.

    Engaged in serious crime, these no-goods need to be put down, but the report ominously omits any details of whence they come.

    Are they real Swedes, or are they further evidence of the blight inflicted by imported aliens (or their offspring) from backward brutal lands?

    But there’s a clue!

    Swedish police intelligence from Gothenburg, Malmö and Stockholm shows that the people involved are almost always young men aged 15-25 who grew up in vulnerable areas, and sell drugs there.   https://www.thelocal.se/20180126/800-young-men-active-in-criminal-networks-across-three-biggest-swedish-cities

    No area can be ‘vulnerable’ unless the cops are failing to patrol it, effective saturation policing with orders to shoot-to-kill scumbags who make life hellish for law-abiding people whether of Swedish or alien origin.

    ….and where residents often do not report crimes to the police, either out of fear of retaliation or because they think it will not lead to anything.

    More like filthy sectarian savages who would benefit no end from a few well-aimed volleys of honest law-enforcement gun-fire!

    Unfortunately, the police, who keep denying these are ‘no-go’ zones –   – do not adapt their methods and equipment in the way I suggest.

    Until they do, and/or initiate wholesale deportations, which is unlikely given the sort of leadership they have had in recent years…

    Another Ingrate ‘Migrant?’ Lying Swede Media Won’t Tell Us!

    Cops should not be muzzing themselves to give political advantage to the ruling elite. It might also be a big help if the media in Sweden did an honest job.

    At some point he asked his boss why the reporters kept labelling immigrants as refugees when it was evident that they were not.

    A lot of my pals here are planning trips to Bali for the holidays, but await Mount Agung’s decision on whether or not to erupt or go back to sleep again.

    So it seems timely to remind all those using local airlines to tuck in before they board their planes, lest the arrogant staff seize any edibles they may have in their hand luggage.

    The idea is to force passengers to pay exorbitant prices for snacks they can get in their local eateries for half the cost of the airline food.

    For my part, I see little need to stuff my gob on such a short flight, a good book more than enough to alleviate the tedium of travel.

    Yet my own travel plans have encountered an obstacle, details of which shall be preceded by an anecdote..

    My old Latin teacher, Mr. Johnson, when confronted with feeble excuses for our academic shortcomings, used to say –

    ‘That would make a cat laugh!’

    My cat, now in her 16th year, and going strong, sometimes seems to be rolling in the aisles, but despite her many talents, I have never seen or heard her chortle.

    Even so, I was tempted to read her the story of a Russian man previously given a lifetime ban from Sweden  who said he had come to Sweden in order to fetch his cat, a pet named Gosoya…   https://www.thelocal.se/20171103/russian-man-sentenced-after-returning-to-sweden-to-get-his-cat

    which in his absence (due to deportation!) had been residing at a ‘cat hotel’ for no less than THREE YEARS.

    If his tale was true, he must be a wealthy Russian, for having a cat boarded is not cheap, even here in Jakarta.

    However, there are plenty of cat-lovers about…

    ….and I always find a friend or one of the local maids to feed mine when I go out of town – the friends get beer bought for them afterwards, the maids get financial reward.

    The cat cares not how she’s fed, as long as she is.

    Now that time of year approaches again. I am leaving town for a week in December.

    Unlike many of my friends who say they are going ‘out’ for the Festive Season, inexplicably heading for cold climates in Europe or North America.

    …when I leave town, my range of destinations is restricted to places where the weather allows a daily wardrobe of t-shirts and shorts!

    However it transpired that the usually reliable maids are heading home to their kampungs too!

    A desperate search commenced. And now, lo, success!

    A volunteer stepped forward, and once a day, half the contents of a can of cat-food will be tipped into the plastic dish, a further fifteen minutes of that volunteer’s time will be devoted to guard duty…

    …watching out for the wicked strays that prowl the complex, ever-ready to raid the plates of respectable honest felines like mine.

    Now I can start packing.
