If You’re Not With Us, You Are Against Us

In two weeks, there will be general elections in Germany, which in all likelihood will confirm Angela Merkel’s fourth term as chancellor. A new conservative party AfD, Alternative for Germany, who are critical of immigration and of Islam, have been gaining traction though. Media and celebrities are therefore whipping themselves up in a moral panic over “right extremism”, attacking everyone who does not publicly endorse Merkel’s refugee policies.

Singer Helene Fischer has come under media attack for being so “irresponsible” as not to virtue signal.

The German Schlager Music singer Helene Fischer has never criticized Merkel or even spoken about politics, but just the fact that she keeps her opinions to herself puts her in the line of fire.

Helene was born in 1984 in Siberia. Her grandparents were Volga Germans who had been deported from Ukraine to Siberia during the Second World War. In 1988 her parents, her sister and she emigrated to Germany. She has been the most successful German singer of recent years, with millions of records sold and sold-out stadium tours.

TV presenter Klaas Heufer-Umlauf: “duty to take a stance in political matters”

In a  Der Spiegel interview that was dutifully cited in every other media outlet, TV personality Klaas Heufer-Umlauf criticizes Helene for being “irresponsible”, as, in his opinion, celebrities had the duty to take a stance in political matters. “Helene Fischer simply ought to say: ‘There are people coming here who need our help. Let’s help them. My recommendation, yours, Helene Fischer’. She wouldn’t even have to write endless Facebook Posts. Just a sentence at the opening of one of her gigs. People would listen to her.”

Tote Hosen singer Campino prides himself so much in being a ‘Gutmensch’ that he patented the word.

The popular ageing punk rock singer Campino of Die Toten Hosen, who prides himself so much in being a Gutmensch that he patented the word (really), showed just how out of touch with reality he is in an interview with Kurier, Austria, where he said there was a general “right extreme atmosphere” in Germany, and lashed out at Helene:
“What if she said, ‘I am against the AfD and against the right extreme atmosphere’? People would hate her. Her management might say: ‘We don’t need trouble like this, we have a fueled engine that runs smoothly, so please shut up regarding politics.’ Fact of the matter is, you need to be prepared to loose fans when you take a political stance.”,

Another German singer, Udo Lindenberg, demanded:
“If only Helene Fischer made a statement againist right-wing populism!”, and praised the virtuous:“Grönemeyer for example, BAP, Niedecken, Die Toten Hosen, Jan Delay, Clueso”.

        MPs call for ‘anti-Muslim paramilitary manual’ website to be investigated

        A group of MPs have called for an investigation into a far-right website described as a training manual for anti-Muslim paramilitaries, amid fears that an upcoming exhibition of cartoons of the prophet Muhammad in London is designed to incite Islamist violence.

        The Gates of Vienna website has been heavily promoting the exhibition, which is understood to feature the same drawings shown in Texas in May when two gunmen attempted to storm the event and were killed by police.

            A group of MPs have called for an investigation into a far-right website described as a training manual for anti-Muslim paramilitaries, amid fears that an upcoming exhibition of cartoons of the prophet Muhammad in London is designed to incite Islamist violence.…

            …In a report on the so-called British counter-jihadist movement, published on Monday, the anti-fascist group Hope Not Hate called for the exhibition to be banned.

            Nick Lowles, Hope Not Hate’s chief executive, said: “Our concern is that the event is intended to provoke a reaction from British Muslims. It is not about freedom of speech, it is about incitement. The authorities cannot allow this event to go ahead. Communities shouldn’t rise to their bait, we must stand together as a show of strength.”

            Lowles also said he had serious concerns about material published on the Gates of Vienna website. The site – the name of which refers to a 1683 battle between European forces and the Ottoman empire – contains detailed descriptions of how anti-Muslim paramilitary groups could operate during a conflict with European Muslims.

            One entry is a fictionalised account of a predicted race war, described as “a hard look at the near future in Britain”, with a section entitled “A guide to amateur bomb-making”.…

          Slandering AfD, citing “[t]he respected nonprofit civil rights law firm, the Southern Poverty Law Centre,” name-dropping Anders Breivik. Dubbing the GoV a “notorious hate blog”.

          “The name of the Gates of Vienna blog comes from the Muslim Ottoman empire’s siege of Vienna in 1683, which the site believes continues today through “Islam’s” efforts to “overrun Christian Europe.”

          Breivik cited the Gates of Vienna blog 86 times in his manifesto. He saw it as among a handful of intellectual sources for what he dubbed “the Vienna school of thought.”

          One of its most prominent contributors is ‘Fjordman’, the pseudonym for Peder Are Nøstvold Jensen, whose online writings were linked to 114 times by Breivik. Fjordman now strongly distances himself from Breivik in his public writings.

          Among the Gates of Vienna’s posts are detailed prescriptions for anti-Muslim paramilitary operations during a civil war with European Muslims, and even ‘A guide to amateur bomb-making.’ Fjordmam’s Gates of Vienna posts in particular repeatedly predict an inevitable race war within Europe between Muslims and their neighbours.

          An extensive investigation by the anti-fascist charity Hope Not Hate in 2015 found alarming evidence that the Gates of Vienna blog was linked to a far-right plot to “incite a violent backlash from British Muslims, leading to serious disorder between Muslim and non-Muslim communities”, by hosting a cartoon exhibit featuring Muhammad.…”

      • “We demand the authorities take action against the Gates of Vienna blog

        And I could not agree more!!!

        For several years, there has been a conspicuous lack of any suitable redress about the obvious neglect regarding how thoroughly overdue Dymphna and Baron Bodissey are when it comes to being awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom and Congressional Gold Medal.

        This is an unforgivable slight that can only be remedied by the swiftest action.

        • The Counter-jihad is an underground, I think Dymphna wrote. Few stars like Pamela Geller have the resources to go public safely, most toil quietly for years. GoV is bedrock, indispensible just the way it is.

          I suspect that the greatest reward for Dymphna and the Baron is the commitment of faithful readers and contributors to get the word out. Become aware of the issues and personalities, understand the connections in many different contexts. Share the insights, each in our own sphere.

          How many “missionaries” have they inspired, I wonder?

  1. What I find most frustrating about the current world scene is that things would quite good on the planet Earth these days if it weren’t for the crazy dishonest thinking of some people. More people have climbed out of poverty in the last fifty years than at any time in history as the result of industrialization and capitalism, yet the left continues to paint those things as the root of all evil. Environmental consciousness continues to grow, yet the left keeps trying to sideline those issues with their phony “climate change” hoax. Most Muslims want to live in peace and forget about the dark side of their religion, yet we consistently keep siding with and empowering the guys who want to murder all the Infidels, ban freedom of speech and plunge the world into unspeakable darkness. The Russians seem to want to be friends, yet they keep attacking Putin at every opportunity. We enjoy functioning, peaceful democracies, yet they do everything they can to subvert and undermine those things with their clever lies, their propaganda, and their Antifa Brownshirts.

    The left has only one goal that is the actual target of all their so-called causes. They don’t care about gay rights or the environment or women or racial equality, they just want to sow such discord that the people become ready for a revolution and burn the whole thing down. The left are dangerous mental patients – depressed, angry, and suicidal, they are vandals who yearn to kill themselves and take the rest of us with them. They are trying to throw the game. And don’t even think about saying that they don’t know that letting millions of Somali street scum into their countries is a bad idea. Come on, they know… They dream of flames and gunfire and the end of the world they apparently hate.What kind of a piece of shit wants to commit suicide and take innocent bystanders with them out of self pity and spite?

    • More people have climbed out of poverty in the last fifty years than at any time in history as the result of industrialization and capitalism, yet the left continues to paint those things as the root of all evil.

      Good on ya, mate. In a single sentence you have dissected one of the most vicious and enduring lies that (non-Classical) Liberals spew about Free Market Capitalism. My only amendment would involve substituting “century” for your “last fifty years”.

      For example: Just as with how America’s Capitalist “wage slaves” nevertheless managed to land and safely return from the lunar surface astronaut teams a half-dozen times, so have Western free market economies done more to improve the overall global quality of human life (e.g., expectancy) beyond all other efforts except, perhaps, whoever it was that mastered a reliable technique for making fire.

      There is no small irony regarding how, to this very day, vociferous lunatics (so to speak) continue their astonishingly persistent efforts at repudiating both the moon landings and widespread efficacy of Capitalism. A system which—in combination with American Constitutional rights—best enables and most vigorously protects their opportunity to voice such offensive, ridiculous claims.

      Please consider reading Ayn Rand’s, “Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal“. This crisp, compact, and eminently readable collection of her topical essays rips all other recognized socioeconomic systems several glistening new ones.

  2. You would think that the Europeans would have learned the lesson of WW2 – appeasement of evil doesn’t work. Islam is an evil spreading throughout the nations of Europe and it is only propped up by a very few “leaders” and their ability to control the dialogue through suppression. When this breakdown, all hell will break loose.

    • Ah, but to wish fight back against evil, one must recognize it and, perhaps stating the obvious, acknowledge its existence. In our post-modernist societies, fewer and fewer people believe in objective good or evil, and would consequently be unable to see it when confronted with even glaringly obvious evil

      A number of factors have worked together to bring about the West’s vulnerability to islam, but perhaps foremost among them is the morally bankrupt ideology of post-modernism (closely affiliated with Marxism, as Dr Jordan Peterson has explained previously).

      • In our post-modernist societies, fewer and fewer people believe in objective good or evil, and would consequently be unable to see it when confronted with even glaringly obvious evil.

        Welcome to (not so) wonderful world of, “feels over reals”. Less rigorous and far more palliative subjective “reality” supersedes the objective Reality of inconvenient facts. As in:

        Who ya gonna believe, me or your own eyes?
        — Groucho Marx in, “Duck Soup”

        Please read: Magical Thinking™. Meanwhile, back at the ranch… (i.e., as in, disputing the existence of, “Objective Good or Evil”).

        PaulW, here’s a tidy little thought experiment that you can pose to those Liberal poseurs who insist (with such despicable regularity) upon how, “There is no good or evil, just shades of grey”.

        Merely ask them, especially if any women are involved (or merely within earshot), “So, when is rape okay?

        If necessary, upon request, I can provide logical proof that rape is never acceptable. I’ll even go out on a limb here and proclaim that the sheer existence of Islam stands as irrefutable proof of how there exists such a thing as Genuine “Evil” (with a capital E).

        The Atrocity whose anniversary falls on this enragingly mournful day is part and parcel of corroborating that assertion.

  3. I’m very familiar with Volga Germans. Being in Russian Federation, they essentially became Russian in spirit, i.e. not-politically correct. All the while their peers in the mutterland were bent and beaten into moral submission and blind trust of the government. It’s only predictable that there would be deep misunderstanding between the locals and repatriated Germans who have “improper” opinions on the widely-accepted dogmas.
