Daily Links Post graphic

Each day at just after midnight Eastern, a post like this one is created for contributors and readers of this site to upload news links and video links on the issues that concern this site. Most notably, Islam and its effects on Classical Civilization, and various forms of leftism from Soviet era communism, to postmodernism and all the flavours of galloping statism and totalitarianism such as Nazism and Fascism which are increasingly snuffing out the classical liberalism which created our near, miraculous civilization the West has been building since the time of Socrates.

This document was written around the time this site was created, for those who wish to understand what this site is about. And while our understanding of the world and events has grown since then, the basic ideas remain sound and true to the purpose.

So please post all links, thoughts and ideas that you feel will benefit the readers of this site to the comments under this post each day. And thank you all for your contributions.

This is the new Samizdat. We must use it while we can.

  1. Spain: Populist Vox party establishes right-wing trade union that won’t ‘bow to the communists’

    “The leader of the Spanish conservative-Christian VOX (Voice) party in Spain, Santiago Abascal, has announced the establishment of a new trade union called “Solidarity”. He emphasized that it will not “bow to the communists.”

    In his opinion, current trade unions in Spain are ideologized, corrupt and controlled by oligarchs and obedient to the government.

    Instead of serving workers, they serve Leftist ideologies, such as gender, feminism or ultra-ecology which has led to the closure of several companies.

    This is why it is necessary to establish a new union, which will unite “non-communist workers” and protect their interests. It should not serve any party or ideology but protect the national economy and rights of Spanish employees and their families, as well as minor companies and the self-employed.

    Abascal is also supported by another VOX activist – Javier Torres, who explained that the choice of the name of “Solidarity” was not accidental.

    It was inspired by the Polish trade union “Solidarno??” (Solidarity), which in the 1980s had the most impact on abolishing communism…”

  2. Polish-Hungarian alliance can counterbalance violent Black Lives Matter movement, says Polish PM Morawiecki

    “The alliance between Hungary and Poland shares a thousand years of history, and the Christian identity both countries promote within Europe can help counterbalance the violence of the Black Lives Matter movement spreading in the West, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki told conservative daily Magyar Hírlap in an interview.

    Morawiecki said that decades of communist oppression further deepened Hungary and Poland’s friendship, which should provide a strong basis for rebuilding the region along traditional values.

    “This is possible partly because our policies are based on Christian values, which are not only the foundation of the European identity, but also give a cultural and moral basis for non-believers,” he said, adding that safeguarding these traditional values is particularly important in the face of the violence of the Black Lives Matter movement.

    “When historical monuments are being destroyed in the United States and some parts of Europe, we want to counterbalance this destruction with positive programs. (…) We must ensure that Central Europe remains an oasis of common sense and peace.”

    Morawiecki said Hungary and Poland are continuously seeking to promote strong families, which is the type of traditional value that can counter “ideological revolutions”.

    “We are sensitive to ideological revolutions and have a good understanding of the importance of traditional institutions such as the family. I want to work with Hungary and the whole region because I know that together we can make families feel safe and develop freely,” he said.

    The latest European Union summit was a prime example of the effectiveness of Polish-Hungarian cooperation as the two countries have both achieved additional economic support for their economies and withstood pressure regarding the rule of law.

    “The Polish-Hungarian alliance is especially important for me. Over the past few days all newspapers around the world wrote about it, from Politico to The Guardian and The New York Times,” Morawiecki said. “Our friendship is not only a thousand-year-old historical relationship, it is [also] filled with solidarity and fighting shoulder to shoulder.”

    He also said the EU summit was a very good example of how the two nations can achieve their common goals.

    “Together with Prime Minister Viktor Orbán we managed to achieve a huge support for our economies and together we halted the pressure from Brussels in matters of rule of law, just as we previously withstood pressure on matters such as migration policy,” he said. “It is clear that the issues we handle are changing dynamically, but one thing is constant: the Polish-Hungarian friendship.”

    Morawiecki also said the summit made it clear that the Visegrad Group has the “power to shape the policies of the whole Union. We are the ‘language of balance’ – the voice of understanding between the parties at the debate.”…”

  3. Germany’s integration policy has failed, warns Rheinsberg mayor after 80 Chechens detained following massive brawl with Germans and Poles
    https://rmx.news/article/article/germany-s-integration-policy-has-failed-warns-rheinsberg-mayor-after-80-chechens-detained-following-massive-brawl-with-germans-and-poles

    “After a mass brawl involving Chechens, Poles and Germans in the German city of Rheinsberg, both the city’s mayor and the state interior minister declared that the district’s integration policy relating to Chechen refugees has failed.

    On Thursday evening last week, a group of Germans and Poles became involved in a violent fight with several Chechens. According to a report by the Tagesspiegel, the fight broke out when a Chechen attacked a boat rental employee in Rheinsberg.

    Police stated that seven people were injured and several cars were damaged. Eight people, five Germans, and three Poles have been provisionally arrested, Junge Freiheit reported.

    In the north of Brandenburg, the local Chechen community have repeatedly attracted attention due to clan structures and crime.

    “Revenge actions and vigilante justice are not common in Germany and must not be,” warned Rheinsberg Mayor Frank Schwochowin a post on Facebook.

    The following day, about a hundred Chechens gathered in Rheinsberg in a show of force, according to the police who described the mood as extremely heated and aggressive. The officials in the town detained 80 Chechens, who according to a report by the Märkische Allgemeine (MAZ), did not come from Rheinsberg alone, but from several other areas of the country.

    During the gathering of Chechens, more mass brawls broke out. One police officer was slightly injured. A video of one of the clashes was posted on Twitter.

    During the gathering of Chechens, more mass brawls broke out. One police officer was slightly injured. A video of one of the clashes was posted on Twitter.

    On Saturday, the two parties involved in the conflict agreed to a mediated conversation with the police in Neuruppin.

    “We accepted this offer because mediated talks are most likely to be effective,” Neuruppins police spokeswoman Ariane Feierbach told the MAZ. The situation has since calmed, but nevertheless, a large contingent of police were still deployed to the city on Saturday to maintain order.

    According to Tagesspiegel, one of the Chechens involved wrote on his Instagram account: “We are happy that we all stick together. The others will not let it go. But neither do we. We now know where they are.”

    He also added the following in Chechen: “They’re not men, they’re goats.”

    The boat rental company, on the other hand, whose employee is said to have been attacked, regretted on Facebook that the atmosphere on both sides was so heated and that the conflict had even come about.

    “We just want to inform you that all ambiguities have been cleared up with the Chechen citizens. We are happy that everything is now clear, and we want a peaceful coexistence here.”

    Meanwhile, Rheinsberg’s mayor, Frank Schwochow, accused the district administrator, Ralf Reinhardt, of abandoning the city in the conflict since he did not respond to calls or emails.

    “There was a fire here in Rheinsberg, and I was left alone as mayor,” complained Schwochow.

    Chechens are willing to result to ‘brute force’
    The issue with Chechens and their clans are not only seen in Rheinsberg. According to the minister of the interior of Brandenburg, Karl-Heinz Schröter, about 7,000 people from the North Caucasus now live in his state and there have been a number serious incidents in various cities, including a massive fight between Chechens and Afghans in the city of Cottbus last summer.

    He admits that the authorities and the police are not always able to prevent domestic conflicts between Chechens and other refugee groups, which most often occur in hostels. The minister says that Chechens are distinguished by a very quick mobilization of compatriots from other places, often so quick that the German police suspect that such incidents are planned in advance.

    “There were problems with Chechens in other cities, especially in places where refugee applicants were concentrated,” said Schröter. “They are expressed in the conflicts between immigrants from Chechnya and other nationalities which involved whole groups of people who actually live in other areas of Germany immediately gathering. They were mobilized to respond by a member of the group who felt slighted, and sometimes it resulted in assaults.”

    The Brandenburg interior minister said that Chechens tend to resolve problems with “brute force”, which creates difficulties for police. Germany has between 20,000 and 50,000 Chechens but the majority of them live in Brandenburg, with many of them arriving there after applying for refugee status.

    The Chechen link with radical Islamist groups
    There is also a link between radical Islam and Germany’s Chechen community. According to Schröter, of the individuals identified as Islamic extremists in Brandenburg, 45 percent of them are from the North Caucus region, which includes Chechnya.

    “These are people who not only profess a certain religion, but are also ready to establish it with the help of force,” he said. Police intelligence have also documented the deep links between Chechen organized crime and radical Islamist groups.

    Conflicts involving Chechens are not limited to organized brawls either, but have escalated into shootings, such as the case in Berlin in 2018 in which three Chechens and three Kosovars opened fire on a cafe with AK-47s after the owner allegedly refusing to pay for marijuana he purchased.

    Schröter said that the fact that there is currently no armed conflict in Chechnya means “many of these [asylum] claims are rejected, however, after a negative decision, there is still a legal opportunity to challenge it, and almost all applicants resort to it. As a result, their stay in Germany is significantly delayed.”

    Schröter said that this was a general problem with asylum applications in Germany, saying there are many reasons courts will prevent deportation.

    “For example, medical indications, pregnancy, the presence of young children or babies. All this prevents deportation to their homeland, at least for a while. And so a large group of Chechens — but also representatives of other nationalities — are now in Germany despite the fact that their applications for asylum were rejected,” he said.

    Chechen clan gangs are ‘ideal for the underworld’
    An article in Deutsche Welle entitled, “Chechen clans in Germany: what can the police oppose to them?” explored the very few options special forces have to stop Chechen organized crime groups. According to the article, Chechen gang have the “ideal qualities for the underworld”:

    “Berliner Morgenpost newspaper quoted an expert on organized crime from the Federal Office of Criminal Affairs. According to him, Chechens are increasingly becoming involved in criminal cases of extortion and drug trafficking. However, it is extremely difficult to investigate these crimes due to the high degree of closeness (clannishness) of the groups.”

    The issue of language is also a barrier for law enforcement.

    The issue with Chechen gangs and.abilty to organize members of the group has also been displayed in other countries. France recently experienced fours days of conflict between warring Chechen and Arab groups in the city of Dijon, leading to a conflict that drew hundreds of Chechens to the city from across France and other European countries for a revenge attack on Arab gangs.”

  4. Fauci Disputes Viral Video: ‘Hydroxychloroquine Is Not Effective’

    Dr. Anthony Fauci disputed a video of doctors praising coronavirus conspiracies, explaining that scientific data and clinical trials determined that “hydroxychloroquine is not effective” to treat COVID-19.

  5. Dr. Anthony Fauci Pleads With Americans To Listen To Science

    Dr. Fauci asks Americans to listen to science after the president doubles down on his pushing of hydroxychloroquine as a coronavirus treatment, even though studies have not proven its efficacy.

    • Perhaps the good Doctor could explain why 5 hospitals in Florida have laid off 800 workers if the hospitals are so full. Stop the lying. There are a lot of sick liars in the so-called pharmaceutical experts and the press. They have no shame just a love of money. If you feel ill do not be afraid to go to the hospital.
