France, Germany clamping down on speech that opposes its ambitions, even when true, more: Links2 on Feb. 6 – 2016

1. German journalist claims the government tells its media what it can and cannot report on following outcry over Cologne sex attack news blackout

A former news boss in Germany has claimed the country’s media is told what to report on by Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government.

His admission comes as the country grapples with accusations media ignored hundreds of sex attacks committed by migrants during Cologne’s New Year celebrations.

Dr Wolfgang Herles, the former head of a public broadcaster Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen (ZDF), said journalists are instructed to write news reports that are to ‘Ms Merkel’s liking’.

Dr Herles labelled the situation a ‘scandal’ during a radio panel discussion on media and freedom of the press, Breitbart reported.

Asked if the media landscape had ‘got out of whack’, he replied: ‘Today, one is not allowed to say anything negative about the refugees.

‘This is government journalism and that leads to a situation in which people no longer trust us.’

He elaborated by saying the topics that should be reported on are ‘laid down by the government’, with instructions passed down to news executives that they should frame issues in a way that is for the ‘public good’ of Europe.

(Anyone else have a problem with that?)

3. Ringleader of gang who repeatedly raped a 13-year-old schoolgirl in Yorkshire ‘has fled to Bangladesh before being sentenced’ 

The alleged ringleader of a gang who repeatedly raped a vulnerable 13-year-old schoolgirl in Yorkshire is believed to have fled abroad to Bangladesh before being sentenced.

Arif Chowdhury, 20, allegedly left for Bangladesh during the investigation after he was arrested in 2012 in connection to the raping of the schoolgirl, Bradford crown court heard last year.

He is also accused of pimping her out to his contacts in Keighley when he was just 15.

Bangladesh has never extradited anyone to the UK, leaving West Yorkshire police with an uphill battle to find Chowdhury, according to The Guardian.

Louise Blackwell QC described Chowdhury, a convicted drug dealer, as being ‘evil’ and violent.

A jury heard how Chowdhury first raped the girl, who cannot be named, behind a church when he was 15.

He had previously got to know her when she was 13 after persuading her to do drug runs in Keighley.

Thank you Buck, M., Oz-Rita, and many more. Posting will be a bit sloppy (ier than usual) today as much is going on and I want to get it out there even if the formatting isn’t as good as I can generally make it. Thanks for bearing with us. We have a lot of people working with us today to bring materials from the various PEGIDA marches and so on across Europe and there is the usual spate of news as well as some editing of good people’s efforts to resist the political class’ efforts to destroy our liberal democracies.

(I’m not 100% sure about this, but it appears that a French General, Christian Thornton, was stopped by police as he was marching with PEGIDA in Calais. More on that as soon as possible.

From Rita: 

“They apparently just arrested this General whose communiqué I have translated here at the end of this post:”

Oz-Rita has an explanation and background on this laid out on her site here.

  1. Hamas rejects Iranian financial aid over regional split: Report

    Hamas has refused an offer of financial aid from Iran in return for adopting an anti-Saudi Arabia stance in the current diplomatic stance rift between the two countries, sources from the movement have said.

    The decision to reject the offer of Iranian support came from Khaled Meshal, head of Hamas’s political wing, a source told Saudi-owned news site al-Sharq al-Awsat on Friday.

    The source said Meshal feared that siding with Iran against Saudi Arabia would mean Hamas risked losing its “Sunni support base”.

  2. The arrest of the General is the government telling the rest of the military both active duty and retired that they are to keep their mouths shut and toe the party line. Things in Europe are starting to take on a pattern that has played out many times in history, most notably in Germany just after Hitler became Chancellor but it started a few years ago in the US. The problem the left has is that while the officer corps was willing to stand still and keep quiet when the purge of non politically reliable officers (non politically reliable from the lefts view point) took place they weren’t willing to let one of their own be the whipping boy to warn the rest to keep their mouths shut.

    The question now is will the French officer Corps tolerate this warning arrest or will they follow the US active duty officer corps and tell the political whores to back off?
