Reader’s Links for January 12, 2021

 

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. Number of Tunisian Migrants Landing in Italy Rose Fivefold in 2020
    https://english.aawsat.com/home/article/2737451/number-tunisian-migrants-landing-italy-rose-fivefold-2020

    “The number of Tunisian migrants landing on Italian shores soared fivefold to 13,000 in 2020, a rights group said on Tuesday, citing economic privations in Tunisia that fuel migration in boats across the Mediterranean.

    Tunisia has come under strong pressure from European nations on opposite shores of the Mediterranean to stem the flow of migrants, especially after a deadly extremist attack at a church in the French city of Nice by a Tunisian migrant last year.

    The Tunisian Forum of Economic and Social Rights said that the number of illegal Tunisian migrants reaching Italy in 2019 was 2,654 in 2019, and 5,200 in 2018.

    Human traffickers increasingly use the Tunisian Mediterranean towns of Sfax, Zarzis and Mahdia as launch pads for migrants heading by boat to Europe.? ?

    Tunisia is in the throes of economic and social crisis a decade after the fall of longtime ruler Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali to a popular uprising.”

  2. ‘Horrific barbarism’: UK to ban Chinese imports linked to forced Uighur labour

    “The United Kingdom has accused China of human rights violations amounting to “barbarism” against its Uighur minority, and introduced new rules to ban imports of goods suspected of using forced labour.

    Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, in comments to Parliament on Tuesday, said China’s abuses were “on an industrial scale” and outlined plans to bar British companies that inadvertently or deliberately profit from, or contribute to, human rights violations against the Uighurs in Xinjiang province, northwest China.

    “It is truly horrific barbarism we had hoped lost to another era, being practised today, as we speak, in one of the leading members of the international community,” he said.

    Raab’s strongly worded comments will do little to improve ties with Beijing strained by its crackdown in Hong Kong, but the foreign secretary stressed that the UK has “a moral duty to respond”…”

  3. Muslim US official illegally ‘forced to remove hijab’ in police custody: CAIR
    https://english.alaraby.co.uk/english/news/2021/1/12/muslim-official-forced-to-remove-hijab-in-police-custody

    “An elected Muslim official in the state of Virginia plans to file a lawsuit with the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) against Fairfax County police after she was allegely forced to remove her hijab at the station.

    Abrar Omeish, a Fairfax County elected official, said she was pepper sprayed by a police officer after he pulled her over for turning right at a red light.

    After she was taken into custody, Abrar was forced to remove her hijab (Islamic head scarf) and photographed she added.

    This would be in violation of federal law.

    The civil rights and advocacy organisation CAIR has taken on her case. They said they will take on the department for alleged police brutality and also demand reforms through the Fight for Five Coalition.

    Omeish is the leader of the “Fight for Five” coalition, working on local and state reforms.

    The incident occurred on 5 March 2019, and at the time Omeish had been running for a Northern Virginia school board seat.

    She revealed that she had been travelling between campaign events when she was stopped by a police officer.

    In May, two months after the incident, she pleaded no contest to failing to exhibit her driver’s licence, and to failing to stop before turning right on a red traffic light, according to court records at the time.

    “It makes no logical sense to me that, within three minutes, an officer would have to pull mace and that it would escalate and devolve into everything it was that night, over a minor traffic violation,” Omeish told The Washington Post at the time.

    A Fairfax County police spokesperson said Omeish had a dozen times refused to provide identification, and that the officer had chosen to use pepper spray because she had “actively resisted arrest”.

    However, Omeish contested the claims made by the officer, identified in police papers as JW Patrick, and said she had told the officer she would give him her licence but was then pepper-sprayed.

    Omeish recorded part of the incident on her phone.

    “What they took as refusal to give my license was, essentially, me delaying it by asking questions.”

    She said she was dragged out of the car, where she hit her head. Once outside the car, she shouted: “A cop is being brutal! Help me!”

    Speaking of being photographed without her hijab, Omeish recalled: “I was sobbing at that point.”

    “This is actually my dignity. This is such a big deal.””

  4. Female Military Personnel ‘Assassinated’ in Balkh
    https://www.khaama.com/female-military-personnel-assassinated-in-balkh-445544/

    “At least two female security members were killed in an unknown gunmen attack in PD5 of Mazar-e-Sharif in Balkh province.

    Officials confirmed to the media that 2 female officers were killed and 2 other female security members were injured.

    Mohammad Hanif Rezaei, the spokesman for the 209th Shaheen Corps, told media that the unknown gunmen burst into attacking the officials on their way to work.

    Reports indicate the security officials were on their way to their duties when the incident happened.

    During the attack, the driver was also wounded, no further detail was provided by the officials.

    Media reported, that motorcyclists opened fire on a vehicle carrying the 209 Shaheen Corps.

    This comes in a time, as NDS arrests five members of the Haqqani Network cell on charges of espionage.

    Haqqani militant members were captured in Paktika province, one of the captured suspects known as Naqibullah was directly in contact with the Pakistani Inter-services Intelligence (ISI).

    Naqibullah and four of his accomplices were arrested by the Afghan National Directorate of Security.”

  5. I think what bothers me the most about this man is not the vulgarity of his attitude, it is the fact that we are paying his salary. All those deplorable idiots pay his salary! What a parasite.

    PBS Principal Counsel Lays Out Violent Radical Agenda; Says Americans Are ‘F*cking Dumb’ … ‘Go to White House & Throw Molotovs’ … ‘Put [Children] into Re-Education Camps…Watch PBS All Day’ … ‘COVID Spiking in Red States…[Red State Voters] Are Sick & Dying’

    Michael Beller, PBS principal counsel: “We go for all the Republican voters and Homeland Security will take their children away…we’ll put them into the re-education camps.”

    Beller: “Enlightenment camps. They’re nice, they have Sesame Street characters in the classrooms, and they watch PBS all day.”

    Beller: “Americans are so f*cking dumb. You know, most people are dumb. It’s good to live in a place [Washington, D.C.] where people are educated and know stuff. Could you imagine if you lived in one of these other towns or cities where everybody’s just stupid?”

    Beller: “What’s great is that COVID is spiking in all the red states right now. So that’s great…a lot of them [red state voters] are sick and dying.”

    PBS is a non-profit institution receiving millions of dollars per year from the federal government

    [WASHINGTON, D.C. – Jan. 12, 2021] Project Veritas released a new video today exposing Michael Beller, Principal Counsel for The Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), for his statements defending violent attacks on the White House, re-education for the children of Trump supporters and praising the deaths of red state voters as a result of COVID-19.

    In a conversation with a Veritas journalist, Beller explained his violent intentions:

    Michael Beller: “In these times, which are unique — I mean Trump — Trump is close to Hitler.”

    Journalist: “What are you going to do if we [Democrats] don’t win?”

    Beller: “Go to the White House and throw Molotov cocktails.”

    Beller said that the children of Trump supporters were being raised to be horrible people, and that a solution would be sending those children to re-education camps.

    “They’ll [Trump supporters] be raising a generation of intolerant, horrible people – horrible kids,” Beller said.

    “We go for all the Republican voters and Homeland Security will take their children away…we’ll put them into the re-education camps,” he said.

    “Enlightenment camps. They’re nice, they have Sesame Street characters in the classrooms, and they watch PBS all day,” he said.

    Beller told the Veritas journalist that he was happy to live in Washington D.C. instead of a small town in the United States. He said that people in those towns are not intelligent.

    “Americans are so f*cking dumb. You know, most people are dumb. It’s good to live in a place where people are educated and know stuff. Could you imagine if you lived in one of these other towns or cities where everybody’s just stupid?”

    Beller said it was a good thing that COVID-19 expanded in states where Republican candidates often win elections. He said it would help his political objectives if voters in those states did not show up to vote given that they would likely be sick or dying:

    Beller: “What’s great is that COVID is spiking in all the red states right now. So that’s great.”

    Journalist: “Why do you think so?”

    Beller: “Because either those people won’t come out to vote for Trump — you know the red states — or a lot of them are sick and dying.”

    Project Veritas is seeking insiders within PBS to further expose the radical ideas being fomented in the organization. Contact [email protected] with information.

  6. Syria: YPG/PKK fire on men fleeing forcible recruitment
    https://www.aa.com.tr/en/middle-east/syria-ypg-pkk-fire-on-men-fleeing-forcible-recruitment/2107646

    “YPG/PKK terrorists on Tuesday opened fire on young recruits fleeing the group’s clutches in northeastern Syria.

    YPG/PKK terrorists continue forcibly recruiting young men by separating them from their families in Deir ez-Zor and al-Hasakah provinces, where a large Arab population resides.

    According to local sources, at least one person was injured when the terrorists tried to round up more than a dozen young men in the Qamishli city center in Al-Hasakah.

    The terrorists regularly round up hundreds of young men in raids on houses and at checkpoints in the city centers. They also take them to training camps in Al-Hasakah province.

    In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK — listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US, and EU — has been responsible for the deaths of 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants. The YPG is PKK’s Syrian offshoot.”

    Terrorists belonging to the terror group often take shelter in northern Iraq to plan cross-border attacks in Turkey.

  8. 16 arrested as Trento drugs gang smashed
    https://www.ansa.it/english/news/2021/01/12/16-arrested-as-trento-drugs-gang-smashed_e275065c-2ad3-422d-8436-2eeda9bf544f.html

    “Italian police on Tuesday arrested 16 people as they smashed a Nigerian mafia drugs ring in the northern city of Trento.

    Police also carried out 20 raids in the regions of Trentino, Veneto and Lombardy in the operation, codenamed ‘Underground’.

    Police said the gang controlled the drugs trade in Trento.

    It was based, however, in the back of a Nigerian ethnic goods store in the Veneto city of Verona, police said – while the drugs were stored in another Veneto city, Vicenza.

    Pushers allegedly ‘commuted’ to and from Trento and Verona on the train, police said.
    Pushers could earn as much as 2,500 euros a day.

    The drugs traffic and distribution was allegedly managed by a Nigerian woman, Agho Isoken Tina, aka Mamma T, who was allegedly assisted by her son and sister-in-law, police said.

    The gang allegedly used the proceeds of prostitution, one of the Nigerian mafia’s staple occupations, to buy the drugs.

    Trento Flying Squad Commander Tommaso Niglio said many of the pushers were poor asylum seekers.

    He said they would often swallow the doses, risking their lives, rather than face arrest.
    Police seized half a kilogramme of cocaine and heroin in the bust.”

    2:26

    Wall Street is slamming the lid shut on the coffers of its corporate political action committees and threatening pro-Trump politicians on Capitol Hill with blacklisting.

    Following a week in which major social media companies cut of President Donald Trump and began excluding some of his biggest advocates in the wake of the Capitol Hill riot, some of the nation’s largest financial institutions have announced that they are halting donations to their political action committees and considering permanently cutting off politicians accused of attempting to “overturn” the 2020 election.

    J.P. Morgan Chase, the nation’s biggest bank by assets and market capitalization, said it is halting donations through its PAC for six months. Citigroup, the third-largest U.S. bank by assets, is reportedly pressing pause on political donations for the first quarter of 2020.
